  1. Punk move to try to throw a helmet. As is hitting a batter on purpose - IMO - I don't know that it was intentional or a bad pitch that hit him on the butt (which is not near the strike zone...). Was that retaliation for something earlier? It was a 2-0 game...
  2. Are you talking about the Republican Party and its tacit support of White Supremacist / Nativist organizations? Your description is a far more appropriate for the GOP than for BLM.
  3. Invasive press would be publishing private information about his family, personal life, etc. Kind of like the way the Right-wing media treats the Clintons. Doggedly asking pertinent political questions does.not represent an invasive press.
  4. That would be the Duterte school of thought now -- we can clearly see where that leads. http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/11/21/when-a-populist-demagogue-takes-power
  5. Emphasis on small. A lot of cereals and juice nearly as unhealthy as soda. It is a complicated issue with a lot of factors -- access, education, time to prepare food, seeking food that won't spoil, etc. How appetizing did the fresh fruit look? I get that it sounds easy -- for many of us it really is easy. I would hazard a guess that none of us qualify for SNAP benefits where a family of 4 is making <25k per year. I don't disagree - but the "nanny state" is an argument that conservatives and other intellectually dishonest folk bring out when convenient and then shove back in the closet when another argument is needed (e.g. state's rights, "small town values", importance of certain amendments and rank ignorance of most (all?) others).
  6. Are you bringing this up as on topic due to the complicating factors of food education and food deserts in predominantly lower income areas? Or not related to education and you believe that we should cut food stamps because 5% goes to soft drinks? Or are you advocating for more government intervention - nanny state, if you will - dictating how people should spend their money? https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/13/well/eat/food-stamp-snap-soda.html
  7. Color me unsurprised that "common decency" holds little water here.
  8. There is no evidence of any cruelty toward the poor -- other than the WH Budget, the AHCA, the DeVos approach to education, etc. etc. etc...
  9. Wouldn't that type of analysis be appropriate for a budget with plans to cut all these programs. However, no such justification or analysis exists -- which is why Simon and others are extremely concerned. You seem to have alleviated any concern because in a perfect world they would be examined and justified -- that ain't happening here from the White House or GOP in Congress. Any other sources that you'd like to share with the class?
  10. Bunch of trades ... 1) WJ gets: Archer Phil gets: Bundy 2) WJ gets: Murphy Fuentez gets: Archer and JC Ramirez 3) WJ gets Bellinger Week gets Polanco
  11. The winning is over and the losing has truly begun in earnest: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/may/25/trump-v-macron-french-president-appears-to-win-latest-handshake-battle?CMP=fb_gu And then Trump tried to get revenge! Ugh...everyone in the world is laughing at the US and we deserve it.
  12. This happening REALLY helps. Such a great curveball -- http://m.mlb.com/video/topic/21753540/v1403526983/colmin-berrios-11-strikeouts-in-11-seconds
  13. It was more of a general response to DM chasing their own tail. There is interesting discussion to be had - that was not it. The original poster specifically was talking about cuts and these cuts -- any argument on the flawed basis of "throwing more money into an already flawed program" is coming in with bias that cannot be addressed seriously.
  14. Some highlights that may have been missed from Game 3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdHbuTWMNTE THE SWEDISH SAVIOR - JONAS JEREBBBBBKOOOOO!
