Re: Send Schwarber Down!!

I believe that they are sending Schwarber down now and if he rakes they will keep him down there until the trade deadline. They then will flip him for a cost controlled SP. He may have played his last game in a Cubs uniform. Ooooooh, this is definitely you gettin' greedy. Shoulda just taken the win...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

You can't do that either. The pension trust is protected assets. Even if you could, the benefits are guaranteed so the trust would have to be replenished by the city/state. If the city/state couldn't fund the trust the benefits would still have to be paid and that burden would be pushed to the fede...

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

Isn't this the same thing that happened with Ant-Man and Edgar Wright. I just don't think Wright ever filmed anything. Nah; in that case, Wright had been bouncing around an idea/pitch for an Ant-Man movie for some time that Marvel really, really liked, but ultimately he didn't want to compromise th...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

I don't think Civil suits can go directly after a person's pension in a situation like that. And I don't think that is a law, that should be changed, because it would open up avenues for an employer to go after an employee's pension or 401k. I don't think we're talking individually, the money would...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

I'm going to need someone to explain what they mean by going after the pensions, and how that helps solve the problem. Civil suits over police shootings or abuse never result in the police themselves being hit financially in any way. You often see organizations changing policies when they start act...

Re: Send Schwarber Down!!

This seems like an extra dumb idea right now, considering Schwarber has been productive in June and Heyward and Zobrist going on the DL. It might accelerate the progress he was going to make anyway, but if you're making the team worse in the meantime how much benefit are you even getting? All the t...

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

On the one hand, OK, I get it; Disney has this brand now, and they want to keep the tone within a pretty focused parameter that doesn't allow a ton of stylistic or tonal flexibility. But, at the same time, why hire a couple of directors who are acclaimed and popular specifically because of the styl...

Yeah, I could've been more clear, but I meant in 2004 he came out of nowhere to become a key voice in the Senate. The parallel I was trying to draw is that who knows how many congressmen are dazzling speakers with great ideas that the DNC hasn't given an opportunity like they did with Obama at the ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Obama made waves with that speech and pretty much became a democratic front runner for the Presidential nominee if I'm not mistaken. In that sense, he came out of nowhere but the 4 years between that and the race I believe were expected to happen . Maybe I'm mistaken? Something that always makes me...

Again, there's no possible explanation as to how this idiot got off besides racism. This is insane. if he can't be held accountable, then can't the people that trained him be held accountable? They will be, but it will be in the civil suit, which will really just hold the taxpayers accountable. Iro...

Jesus Christ. He said something would "be a big coo."

And that calling a congresswoman a senator is a "typo."

Aaahahahahahaha! Wow, how did you mentally prepare yourself for interviewing the sitting Speaker of the House for your undergrad paper on Title IX? Oh yeah. Nancy Pelosi is a Congresswoman.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Plus Pelosi's name is as toxic with conservatives as HRC's. Can't remember if I saw it here but Pelosi's name had like 98% recognition with GA 06 republican voters. Take her away and make the right come up with new boogeymen. No, this is the problem if this actually goes down; they're doing it beca...

Re: Politics & Current Events

My objection to how the DNC chair played out was primarily as how it symbolized what direction the party would ideally be going in, not the optics of people's votes being swayed by who the DNC is. Her name is "toxic" because that's what the GOP decided; again, it's a fruitless endeavor to...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I get that, but people also don't vote for (or against) party chairs. They vote for or against elected leaders. I'd tend to agree that a handful of special elections shouldn't be the basis to change leadership, but if there really is data showing her name as toxic... Yea they need to be seriously c...
