Re: Politics in 2017

If Facebook starts charging $8.99 per month, they're going to lose two billion members. Facebook has already determined there is more money to be made in ads than in membership - they aren't charging anyone to log in., net neutrality is about ISPs charging to access things - either charging the con...

Re: Politics in 2017

I have no idea who RoKhanna is, but he needs to fire his ad agency ASAP - this graphic is being put forth as an argument against net neutrality, but is actually a great argument in favor o f it. psssst - when creating you ad, use prices that add up to significantly more than the current price! https...

Re: Politics in 2017

Ah, the long knives are out this morning. 5 minutes after Fox called it, they were blaming Mitch McConnell. This is a huge rebuke to Trump and especially Steve Bannon. Bannon made an ass of himself on Election eve; not feeling too much like a genius this morning, but he's determined to keep pluggin...

Re: Knicks suck 2017-2018

Overtime win over the Lakers - Porzingis was otherworldly and Ntikilina came on a played D late - he shut down the overrated Ball with his obnoxious father on the sideline. Meanwhile, LaVar ball should be investigated by California's equivalent of Child Services - after one son decided to commit a f...

Re: Politics in 2017

I don't see McConnell's statements as supporting at all.

Did Trump "weasel back" behind him? I thought he backed him all along?

Re: Politics in 2017

So, accepting that anything less than a 20-point blowout tonight is a humiliating disaster for the president's party its "humiliating" to Trump himself as he doubled-down on him. its a "disaster" to the party whose odds of passing things in the senate just got diminished - but i...

Re: Parliamo di Mike Napioli

I would think this is a better plan than anything that includes Napoli:

Vs. Right:
1B: Smith
2B: Cabrera
SS: Rosario
3B: Flores

Vs. Left:
1B: Flores
2B: Cabrera
SS: Rosario
3B: Rivera

Re: Yu Darvish, Big Tipper

Indeed. As I said, that's some disturbing loose-lippedness. You've got to protect your information. Even if you're a free agent, you save that shit for your new team. So, unless the guy is really dumb (which is totally possible), maybe it's part of a counter -information strategy. Circles within ci...

Re: Politics in 2017

Republicans would rather vote for a suspected pedophile than a principled, law and order Democrat in Alabama. I'd be shocked if Doug Jones won. Loved Moore's wife saying they're not anti-Semitic because 'our attorney's a Jew.' She said one of their attorneys was a Jew. When you're as skeezy as Roy ...

I don't think it's "instead of"; it's more lie "in addition to." It's not like his "courting" of young girls hasn't gotten any coverage. my point, perhaps not made clear, is that when you pile on the bullshit - stuff that either isn't true, can't be proven at all, or i...

Re: Dumping Harvey

Profar has pretty much never shown the talent he supposedly had.

Harvey hasnt shown he is healthy enough to get back what he had.

Given the difference in remaining years under control is rather take my chances on Profar today if that was truly an option 1 for 1.

You guys have an inexplicable boner for a union rep. The hall is not "cheapened" in any way, shape, or form by the non-inclusion of someone who never swung the bat or threw the ball. The hall is arguably cheapened by the exclusions of Joe Jackson, Pete Rose, and the collective assumed ster...
