Maybe it's just me but Obama probably should have used a different artist than the Kill Whitey one. Just maybe.

Re: Politics & Current Events

By the time Mueller is done there will be little doubt that Trump is guilty and will have to resign or else his investigation would have ended months ago. Trump knows that and so do Republican leadership. Now they are going to try to get the most done to further their agenda. He will never resign a...

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

the Cards are banking on mitt-popping potential, high ceilings and cost-controlled arms, which could also give them flexibility when the free agent market has A-listers next winter. The Cubs are banking on past performances — and projections of future ones, albeit for guys born in the 1980s. That i...

President Donald Trump accused Democrats on Monday of being “un-American” and “treasonous” in a campaign-style speech in Cincinnati that was actually meant to tout the recent GOP tax bill and the economy. “Can we call that treason?” Trump said, referring to Democrats who did not clap for him during...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

Like this move a lot. Asik has two years left on his deal, but the Bulls can pay it. Losing Niko will just help the tanking efforts and I'm not sold on New Orleans being all that good the rest of the season.
