  1. Well said Bruce. A lesson I'll take away from this place.
  2. Tim - your mailbox is full.... Hey - good luck with the wife. It's a problem I know all too well, and it's nothing to make light of. We've disagreed on a lot of topics in here, but I've always found you to be a great guy, a straight shooter, and a good citizen in here. Just so you know, I spoke with Beav after that incident and he expressed genuine remorse over it. Just thought you should know.
  3. You know, when you shared that story of your wife after the election I actually did some things behind the scenes to discourage people from making light of it.
  4. Oh bull#### Tim. Time to call it out. This place leans heavily to the Left, and the Moderation reflects that. The conservatives in here are no worse than the liberals as far as ban-worthy ####. Eminence, DFS, and Beaver got whacked. How many liberals? It's ####### bull####.
  5. Yet roadkill is still here, isn't he? As is Tanner who has said far worse about my mother, over and over again - and has about a dozen aliases. As is Bucky, who made a comment about the owner that was despicable - was perma-banned - and then let back in 2 months later to continue polluting the board. As is wackpack, a troll alias created a few weeks ago to create threads with the title "How to spot a racist on the board" which was directed at me exclusively, and "when will Higgs be banned?" As is Dickinson who called the owner a ####### ###. eh, #### this place.
  6. Good job Squis. You just got Mr. Fantasy perma-banned as well. This place is unbelievable.
  7. See, this is where your true colors come out Bucky. Only moments after I've sincerely tried to diffuse things you come in here with no other intention but to stir up trouble again.
  8. Who knows, Squistion, maybe I'd say something like this - https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/744557-ffa-moderation-thoughts-what-do-you-think/?do=findComment&comment=19769044
  9. Because I'm half Sicilian? Because where I grew up if someone punched you, you'd better damn sure punch them back? Who knows. I've always said in here I'm a work in progress. Who knows, maybe we will all mellow with age and things will get better. I could see that happening.
  10. I can honestly say I don't hate anyone in here. We disagree. We even brawl at times. But at the end of the day it's just ####### politics.
  11. Jesus Christ - this again? Why on earth you feel the need to continue weighing in on this is beyond me. You weren't there. And you continually misrepresent what happened. Here is the thread - https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/730493-on-the-70th-anniversary-of-vj-day/?do=findComment&comment=18271824 What I posted he said is exactly word for word what was said. I still have the screenshots. I thought he deleted the post but I found out later the mods deleted it. And contrary to your recollection (on something which you weren't even there for) roadkill was suspended - for 2 weeks. @rockaction was right then and he's still right today. There's no need to ratchet up political disagreements into personal hatred of others.
  12. Uh, I live in the Northeast and everyone in this neck of the woods knows about the NH voter fraud. You should get out of your California cacoon a little more.
  13. Look at the second graph I posted. Clintons approval fell off a cliff and on May 1 was the exact same as trump
  14. The question is who would you compare Trump's Presidency thus far to. Do you have a better answer? Would love to hear it.
  15. I'm saying that if you had to pick one President right now who had a similar experience to Trump thus far it would have to be Clinton. Sorry if I didn't make that clear. This really isn't all that radical an idea. I've heard it a few times from political historians. This article from the Atlantic lays out some of the ideas https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/03/clinton-transition-trump-chaos/514760/. There are a number of similarities in the first 100 days. I can't think of any other President that would make for a more suitable comparison. Early failure with high profile items - Clinton with "Don't ask don't tell" - which angered both sides of the debate. Trump with the healthcare failure. Cabinet problems - Clinton ran into early trouble naming an Attorney General. Trump had trouble as well. Stimulus - Clinton made it a big promise that he wasn't able to deliver on in first 100 days. Trump same. Alienation of Congress - Clinton ticked them off by appointing Hillary in charge of health care reform and not adequately consulting Congress about her proposals. Trump criticized for not consulting them enough on health care as well. Media access - Clinton got into hot water over new limits on news media access to senior communications aides. Trump same. Approval ratings - After 100 days both had their approval rating drop the same amount (3% and 4%). http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/data/100days_approval.php On May 1st both had the exact same approval rating - 43% http://us-presidents.insidegov.com/compare/26-134/Bill-Clinton-vs-Donald-Trump
  16. I think the best comparison to Trump is Bill Clinton. Both were beset by scandals early on. Both had a very difficult time gaining any traction. Clinton turned things around (before the bigger Lewinski scandal derailed his second term) but Trump probably won't.
  17. Apologies to Reg and the Board. That was unacceptable on my part and I deleted the post. Sorry again - sincerely.
  18. I don't know. It's been a few months since I spoke with Trump.
  19. You got a couple of hours? For starters, you're an intolerant bigot. You'd rather slot people into preconceived stereotypes (i.e. - people from mixed race families can't have non-Liberal views on race and racism). I'll leave it at that and won't get into any of the other loathsome things about you, like repeatedly referring to my recently deceased mother as a $2 whore.
  20. And if you have a gay son, you should be ashamed. Isn't this fun?
  21. Let me spell it out for you before you hurt yourself. He thinks that I made up that I have a black sister, and that rojbk made up that he is gay.
  22. https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/753767-the-trump-years-we-will-immediately-repeal-and-replace-obama-care-and-nobody-can-do-that-like-me-waitwhat/?do=findComment&comment=20047546 Never met anyone as consistently wrong as you Squidward. Hence,
  23. I actually like wackpack's name, truth be told. Every time he posts I picture Beetlejuice or Crackhead Bob talking.
