Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

I'm guessing this is a throwaway line, but I think the Phillies are going to be competitive in a very weak Division (-Washington). Agreed. But then I t...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Eat crow bitches. if you're a white guy then your race/gender supported doug jones by negative 45 points. I've been adopted by a black family next door. But I'm just saying eat crow to all the people that doubted Jones could win. I said it from the beginning and my predictions are almost never corr...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Wouldn't this reveal itself in lower level elections when the issue has no effect on the position? Maybe not, in that Republicans are the party of Pro-Life. Therefore, they vote Republican. Then doesn't that agree with my initial point on Jones's stance making no difference? I’m saying that as a Pr...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Doug Jones could run on a platform of outlawing Roe v Wade and it would make little difference. Abortion is an excuse to not have to vote for Dems. Man, I just completely disagree. The Gulf Coast has a ton of Catholics who will not budge on abortion rights. They’re voting for an issue, not against ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Early exit polling shows 65% white voters and 30% black. Moore isn’t doing as well with R voters as Romney or McCain, for example, and Jones is doing better than Obama. Probably still not enough The one single issue voting block that is stronger than guns is the Pro Life group. Nothing else matters...

Or Rod Carew.

I listened to a podcast a year or so back about Carew and they discussed him as a hitting coach. He apparently become very bitter about the state of hitting in MLB and hating coaching in the K era.

No, it's the racism. They like that you can say this horsefeathers in the open now. They hated censoring themselves and now that a republican shows you don't have to censor yourself they are all in on the guy.

No, I just can’t agree with that premise. Poor people absolutely see themselves as poor. I grew up in a very poor family in the rural South. They are easily manipulated because being given someone to blame is an easier concept to grasp than complex tax structures, poor public education, etc. Republ...
