Re: Wrestling

Rumor has it J ason Nolf is jogging at practice and wanted to wrestle against Buffalo last Sunday afternoon. I think he may be questionable for the Big 10 conf. championships but again he may wrestle a few bouts then exit and prepare for the NCAA's. They, the NCAA's, are in Cleveland this year, driv...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Like I said, if the background check for a gun is not as simple as my wife's state background check for work and can be manipulated by a form, then people getting through who shouldn't is a feature and not a bug. There is no reason to overly complicate the process unless you want it overly complica...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Carl Appreciate your comments. But, sorry, I don't buy this for 2 reasons. First, a background check that is reliant on how you fill out form is not a check. And, I'm not aware of it being reliant on your answers for any other area. When I got a background check at work, they took my driver license...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

The ruling to redistrict went to the SCOTUS and they refused to entertain the arguments. This specific map did not and I supposed the Republicans can try to challenge, but I doubt that is going to get them anywhere. The SCOTUS already took the position once this was a state law issue, and the new m...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Hello I am sorry to let you know that my dad passed away last week after his long fight with cancer. He passed unexpectedly in his sleep, his heart just gave out. Dad enjoyed the debate and information sharing on this and other sites. I am sure he will be waiting for the rest of you to continue you...

Re: What I am thankful for

I sorry for your loss B&W. I understand, it is tough. I'm thankful for things I've been thankful for in the past. My amazing wife who takes care of me and works full time, plus. I'm thankful for two successful children, both leaders who will end up more successful than mom and dad. I think that ...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I suspect some if not most of the murderers "legally buying firearms" are doing so illegally by falsely filling out the form you are required to which is forwarded to I forget who to do the background check. Then we have either incompetent, lazy, overworked, outnumbered people who are requ...

Re: The NCAA is a complete joke

It would have been crazy to bar them, the PR alone would have been brutal. Any rule written in a convoluted manner which can be misunderstood easily needs to be rewritten so any commoner out her can understand it.

Re: Penn State Hoops.

I agree Shane, UM and UN are must wins now plus a good showing in the tourney. We need to keep out of foul trouble and shoot wisely. IF we don't we sleep with the fishies.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

The ballot box is our best weapon indeed. Congress can turn over every 2 years. Gerrymandering makes real change in Congress extremely difficult. So, it starts with your local elections. Who is your state assemblyman? Who is your state senator? Those are the elections I am going to start paying mor...
