Re: Politics & Current Events

The Senate wasn't supposed to be reflective of voting population numbers in any day and age; that's the point of having a bicameral system where one of the houses is made up of officials who aren't hinged on population numbers. Bottom line, the intention expressly IS to have one of the houses be mo...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Wait, are you seriously asking why it would not make sense for the US to suddenly switch to an aristocratic two house parliamentary system? Because otherwise bicameral legislatures typically rely on one of the houses being made up of representatives who are elected regardless of population concerns...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I don't understand what you mean by "redundant". The whole reason for the Senate to be what it is today has become it's ability of a few to control the will of the many. Small states have a far bigger voice in the Senate. In concept, it was supposed to protect the voice of the few against...

Re: Politics & Current Events

The idea is/was to protect against little states having no voice. The House is for the big states, and the Senate is for the small ones. I know that’s the idea. i don’t care about that idea. or the states. back when we though the states were what counted, sure, fine, that makes sense. now we know t...

Re: Week 7: Patriots @ Bears noon on CBS

The point is that chalking this loss up as expected and Not that bad since we all thought this team was mediocre in August is not a good way to judge a team that has to win with what they already have. They aren't getting more talent. This is the team they have to win with now. Mack is worth the tr...

Re: Week 7: Patriots @ Bears noon on CBS

not sure if serious, but the point is to give the receiver an opportunity to make a play. the same reason QBs handoff to running backs behind the line of scrimmage despite seemingly wanting them to run beyond it. They usually are designed to be a wr screen, giving the wr the ball as quickly as poss...

Re: Week 7: Patriots @ Bears noon on CBS

Regarding this, I've seen the Bears do it several times, why do teams run some passing plays behind the LOS? In addition the you need 5 on third down but, you'll go a receiver who isn't past the chains. not sure if serious, but the point is to give the receiver an opportunity to make a play. the sa...
