    U.S. Politics- SCOTUS 2: The Election Strikes Back

    I finally got to see the press conference from today and holy hell was Trump all over the place. I think the two highlights had to be when he said that his meeting with Putin was the best part of the trip and when he cracked a joke about the intel community seconds after praising them. The presser did hammer home something we already knew though: if Trump is reading while speaking, those are not his thoughts.

    NFL Thread: "Terrell Owens does what?" edition

    I have no idea what the Bears will be this year. I read some articles that say they'll be one of the worst teams in the league and others that think they'll sneak up on a lot of people and could go .500. I guess it all depends on Mitch, and I've got to say, he did not impress me much from what I saw. As for the Seahawks, they should seriously consider trading Wilson. The team needs to go into full rebuild mode and the haul they could get for him should be massive.

    It was actually Gary Cohn, but that doesn't matter. You don't have to be a genius to figure out that cutting taxes doesn't necessarily mean companies are going to expand, especially when these CEOs' salaries are usually tied to the corporation's stock price value and buying back stocks with cause their value to rise. Honestly, I think if you want to incentivize corporations to expand, you should raise their taxes and then offer huge tax breaks if they heavily reinvest in their companies.

    Tennis Volume 7: Roger That!

    Honestly, at this point I just assume everyone is doping, regardless of the sport. In (American) football, how is 40 year old Tom Brady still a top 5 player? It certainly has nothing to do with his doctor who isn't a real doctor. How is LeBron, at age 33, getting stronger and not losing a step? Same goes for Ronaldo. He's 33 and hasn't lost a step? How did that old Croatian team always get stronger in the second halves even though they had been logging more minutes than their opponents? How was Phelps still so strong, given his age and the history of older swimmers? How did Nadal come back to being a top tier player after it looks like he was done.? And what about Serena? Honestly, after Lance Armstrong, I gave up believing that athletes were clean. And really, I don't care, especially if they're taking stuff that's meant to help you heal and recover between games. The one that's obviously bad are the steroid monsters in baseball from the 90's, and truthfully that was when the game was the most fun.

    His words have become truly meaningless. We’ve long since past the point where you can take anything he says at face value. That’s a scary thought when you consider he’s the most powerful person on the planet.

    I agree, hence why I said going forward I expect Giannis to be the better player over the course of the next three years, but that right at this moment Lillard slightly edges him out. I agree with Lillard. He’s likely plateaued. Giannis, OTOH, is an interesting case. He’s already in the same area as Lillard with the potential to rise much further. I agree that he can be “the guy” on a championship team, but he’s got a ways to go first. As you said he was super raw and still needs a lot of refining. But the talent is there and IamMe has every reason to be excited….for the next two years until be bolts on the team. There’s nothing wrong with being a shameless homer so long as you recognize and own your shameless homerism.

    Thing is L'oiseau Canadien, there aren’t any credible people left to resign in protest other than Mattis, and he’s most likely hanging around to mitigate the likely damage Trump could do. If he and Kelly were to resign, I hope you’ll enjoy SoD Bolton and CoS Miller.

    Funny, I have the same top three just in reverse order, though I do have an odd love for Diamonds Are Forever.

    It’s almost as if a few posters didn’t say there would be one time bonuses, no pay increases and most of the capital gains would be reinvested in stock buybacks. *Paces around and whistles*

    Ha! And if it makes Jace feel better, I haven’t seen Fox hosts trash like this since he won the election.

    Eat it @IamMe90!!!! That’s more of a recent development, and it’s hard to argue than anyone has been more valuable to their team than LeBron over the last decade. We’ve yet to see if Giannis can either. Davis is better than Giannis and he just won his first playoff series….. Yeah I’ve always liked the film, but this is purely to mock Trump.

    Maybe that was true then, but I think Craig has shown that a more realistic Bond is preferable to the cartoonish Bond. I hope they stick with that prototype going forward. Goldeneye is a top three Bond film, but Brosnan’s other three entries were a mess. Tomorrow Never Dies is a very middle of the road Bond film, and The World is not Enough and Die Another Day are flat out bad, not that that will stop me from watching them.

    I finally saw License to Kill. It'was one of the few Bond films I had never seen. I'm curious why Dalton didn't get to do more Bond films? I thought he made a good Bond even though the script wasn't that strong, but then again I like a hard, realistic, gritty Bond more than a gadget wielding playboy. I also saw A Quiet Place. If you haven't yet, stop what you're doing and view now!

    Maybe a video of him burning Bibles while watching a woman have an abortion?

    I think he was fourth or fifth, but if we're being honest, LeBron should get it every year outside of one's like Curry's statistically bonkers one or Westbrook setting a new triple double record which most thought could never happen. That said, you're correct to say that RW is losing some shine as others leave him and find success. He's still a great player, but of the league's elite, he's the lowest on the top tier.
