Re: Staggered Primaries

Two Questions: 1. Why do we not just have all primaries on the same day? And 2. Do the people that complain about how the EC makes some states more important than others care about how much more important the states with the early primaries become? I mean, the EC whittles it down to 1 from 2, but i...

Re: Brexit Thread

The British screwed up. Same problem as we have here only worse. Dying spasms of an element of the population dominated by ignorance and resentment. The problem for the young Brits is that the results of the dying spasms over there are going to be much harder to overcome.

Re: Сделаем Америку снова великой! Trump - Russia megathread

You’re right. I should have said suspicion instead of evidence. The justice department policy of not indicting a sitting president doesn’t mean crimes weren’t committed. Similar to financial crimes and the 2008 crash. Since no one was convicted there must not have been fraud? It’s a disappointing p...

Re: Do they sell beer at your stadium?

[tweet][/tweet]Well, since you mentioned McNeese State you already know the answer. Nicholls State too. I'm trying to remember but I think Nicholls State might have mixed drinks too.

But...remember...Louisiana is a State where you can buy alcoholic beverages from drive throughs.

Re: MIAC Conference Kicks St Thomas Out

Actually it looks to me like St. Johns has done more in football in that conference. They beat St. Thomas 40 - 20 in 2018 and gave Mary Hardin Baylor its toughest game in the D-III playoffs (lost 18-21). St. Thomas didn't even make the playoffs. Good thing Mount Union's conference doesn't have this ...
