  1. http://www.suntimes.com/output/rapoport/cs...-spt-rap16.html I'm the one with the Sox season tkt quote off of the sCrUB board. I feel so important now. lol
  2. I think it sounds more like a couple of old friends shooting the breeze about Wally's future and Wally ribbing his friend about the fact that Ron's team could actually have an impact on Wally's chances at getting the Sox managerial position. Wally had absolutely nothing to gain from the Sox winning the central and a chance at everything he wanted if they didn't win it. If I were in his shoes I'd be rooting against the Sox too. Who cares? I really don't. If anything it shows his desire to manage this club and be able to do what he wants with it.
  3. I really don't understand why Rush is catching as much hell as he is. His statement was not a slam at McNabb's race but rather on McNabb's athleticism and talent at QB. He's played awful over a decent period of time. The Eagles did not struggle with Detmer at QB while McNabb was out with the broken leg. The fact that Detmer, a 2nd string QB, could come in and win just like McNabb could win points to the importance of the QB in their winning ways being obviously exaggerated. What if he'd said something like "I think that Donovan McNabb is the greatest black QB in NFL history"? Is that still a racist comment that would be flashed all over every sports page or is that OK being he's saying something positive about McNabb? Give me a break. PC is for the birds. McNabb is a poster boy to an extent. McNair is a MUCH better QB and Caulpepper is on the same plane as McNabb and yet neither of them get NEAR the media attention or advertisements. They are both black and they are both QBs. Could it be that their "image" isn't as consumer, fan-friendly as McNabb? Think about it.
  4. Thomas Jefferson without a doubt, followed by Washington. " We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debt, as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our calling and our creeds...we [will] have no time to think, no means of calling our miss-managers to account but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers. And this is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent ...till the bulk of society is reduced to be mere automatons of misery. And the fore-horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression. " Jefferson
  5. I had read the CNN article yesterday and it mentioned that the mother and father did not keep in contact and that the father did not see the kid much at all. Two different stories pretty much. The father should receive no blame in this. The woman obviously kept the kid away from the father or she would have given her daughter to him to watch while she served her time. She's a deadbeat and should be sentenced to prison where this story circulates through the population and some lifer takes it upon themselves to serve this woman a nice, slow painful death....perhaps drown her with Ketchup.
  6. I wouldn't have said this at the beginning of the season, but here goes.... I have 100% confidence in Kenny Williams to put a winning team on the field next season (notice the lack of green). I think he's settling in at GM and wants to prove all the naysayers wrong. If Paulie, Frank, Jose, Carl, Maggs, or even Robbie (who I'd most like to see stay) are traded I am 100% confident that KW has a plan for this team and a direction he wants to follow. I think that he is strongly pursuing Bart. If Bart leaves, so be it, more money we can spend elsewhere. I think KW's on a mission and I'm surprisingly willing to go along for the ride.
  7. I grew up in Chicago, left when I was 18. I'm 27 now and hate the sCrUBS as much as I did the day I left. There are plenty of their fans down here in Tulsa, and also in Atlanta, where I lived prior to Tulsa. The fact that they are now in the postseason this year makes matters even worse. I was already catching s*** for the Sox inexcusable collapse and now I have to hear about the sCrUBS and sham-me playing in October. I PRAY THEY GET SWEPT BY A MUCH BETTER BRAVES TEAM!!!! So to answer your question B, no, leaving town doesn't change things one bit. I used to have a card that I carried around in my wallet that read, "I'd rather have a sister in a whorehouse than a brother who's a Cubs fan". I'm happy to say that I still find that to be true. :fthecubs :fthecubs

  9. Wow, I had no idea. When I looked it up on Kazaa I typed in teenage wasteland and I got tons of results back. Thanks for the info anyways. I had heard that the beat and rhythm of the synthesiser opening to Baba was actually written based on the pulse and electrical signals that were recorded from a woman named Baba O'Riley in a medical facility. I can't remember where I heard or saw this and was unable to find it while doing a quick search on the net just now. Just a bit of insight as to where I heard the name came from.
  10. What kills me is that the left throws "we trained bin laden" or "we supported saddam" against the US effort to stop these guys now. So, what are we supposed to do, let the situation be? Not fix it? Every government makes mistakes and no matter how calculated a move may be in planning, those calculations can never be 100% accurate. I doubt very much that the US had any kind of idea what kind of leader Hussein would become over time. Now that we know, we had to rectify a situation that we helped to create. Personally, if I make a mistake and it ends up hurting those around me, I'm going to do everything I can to right my wrong. I guess Apu and Co. don't see things that way. Remember, to the left there is no right and wrong, good or evil, only perception and vantage point.
  11. The fact is that the things that are posted are either mindless propaganda like cwsox's "fear & loathing" article or personal twists of news stories like Apu on this thread. He fails to realize that these terrorist groups are trying to accomplish two things with this bulls*** that they love to spew. First off, they want the American public to feel that Islam, not Hamas, is irate not with America and the west in general, but rather at GWB. These statements were intended to make the general public sway further away from voting for Bush, hurt his popularity, and ultimately get him out of office. Hmmm, first president EVER to declare WAR on these terrorist groups and actually do something about it. You think that Hamas wants to see GWB re-elected??? Hell no they don't. They can get Clark or Dean in office and have free reign over the region again. Secondly, perhaps I'm wrong, but there hasn't been a single Al Queda/Hamas/Jihad/etc. suicide attack on US soil since 9/11. I guess something is working. I definitely lean heavily to the right, not a neo-con, and am not very happy with Bush's term thus far, nor his republican controlled congress for that matter. I'm not trying to defend the man or his job thus far. I just think it's important to look beyond the face value of some of these clerics' statements.
  12. I guess I'm a dips*** because it's got me fooled. I see that some of the symbols move but I haven't figured out what relevance that has to the trick. A little help please....
  13. I love it. When is the RIAA going to realize that: A. People are not willing to pay the current prices for music. "Illegal" downloads are not slumping sales, an economy where consumer spending is down is leading to decreased sales. B. You cannot stop music downloads. It's impossible. Everyone talks about Kazaa but there are thousands of people hosting FTP servers and many other actual P2P communities. The RIAA is just making themselves look greedy. How do you sue a 12 yr old kid? lmao :finger RIAA :finger
  14. I wonder how many of those 27 GIDPs he was out at first by just a step. I say that because Paulie loves to stand at the plate for a second after hitting the ball, slam his bat down, shake his head, and THEN decides it's time to run to 1st base to try to beat the throw. I know of atleast 1 in the last MIN series where he wasn't out by much and probably would have made it if not for his GIDP ritual at the plate.
  15. Gaps in intelligence due to inequality in resources being alloted to school districts? Hell, according to standardized tests, Asians do better than whites. So all whites must bow to our Asian masters. And with alcoholism, etc. being predisposed in the genes...didn't that thinking die out with eugenics? There was another big fan of eugenics that you may like, mmmmmbeer. His name is Adolf Hitler. Let's hear it for Eurocentrism! :finger Youth and liberally charged academia, hahaha. I love how you can't beat my argument with FACTS so you dismiss it using my age. I've read about the black/white test gap and a lot of it can be attributed to maldistribution of resources in schools along with opportunities for higher socio-economic class people to get more schooling [i.e. tutors etc] And thank you for saying that I'd like to see more crackheads on the streets. Did Rush or the local Grand Wizard tell you to use that one? "Although most cocaine in the USA is snorted intranasally, smoking crack cocaine has become widely publicized." Source: "Cocaine Dependence", The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy, Section 15.Psychiatric Disorders, Chapter 195.Drug Use and Dependence, Merck & Co. Inc., from the web at http://www.merck.com/pubs/mmanual/section1...ter195/195f.htm last accessed November 30, 2000. "Powder cocaine and crack cocaine are two forms of the same drug, containing the same active ingredient." Source: US Sentencing Commission, Special Report to Congress: Cocaine and Federal Sentencing Policy (Washington DC: US Sentencing Commission (February 1995), p. v. The US Sentencing Commission found in its 1997 report that "nearly 90 percent of the offenders convicted in federal court for crack cocaine distribution are African-American while the majority of crack cocaine users is white. Thus, sentences appear to be harsher and more severe for racial minorities than others as a result of this law. The current penalty structure results in a perception of unfairness and inconsistency." Source: US Sentencing Commission, Special Report to the Congress: Cocaine and Federal Sentencing Policy (Washington, DC: US Sentencing Commission, April 1997), p. 8. So wait, there is longer sentences for a drug that LESS people use? The longer sentences for crack, which has the SAME PHYSICAL EFFECTS ON THE BODYas powder cocaine makes no sense. It's just that crack gets more widely publicized so the politicians want to be "tough on crime." [ie put a bunch of minorities behind bars while real criminals like Ken Lay get to sip margaritas on a beach] I am not trying to use your age against you. I am using your lack of life experiences against you, which just happens to be a trait inherent to age. Most conservatives are older. Most liberals are young. The socialist principles that liberals tend to agree with have been tried REPEATEDLY throughout history and have NEVER succeeded. Therefore, socialism/'marxism easily qualifies as a utopian philosophy that fails miserably in reality. As a young college student guarded from having to actually put food on the table for a family and deal with everyday realities, you are unequipped to challenge conservative philosophies that put self-motivation, self-reliance, self-worth, and self-government above worrying about the crackhead down the street looking for a handout. I am FULLY aware that crack cocaine and cocaine contain the same active ingredient. Crack is cocaine mixed with a variety of other kitchen products, boiled, cooked, sold as rock. Cocaine is often baked to remove moisture and is regularly "cut" with ether, ephedrine, etc... but is considered to be "purer" than crack. The effects of cocaine vs. crack are VERY different. Crack is usually smoked and results in a 10-15 second intense "buzz", whereas cocaine is usually snorted and results in a varied length of "buzz", not nearly as intense, but is ATLEAST several minutes. The fact that the crack buzz is shorter and more powerful results in a higher tendency for addiction. As with other HIGHLY addictive drugs like heroine, I believe that crack should definitely have a stiffer sentence. I'm definitely not Rush, but thanks. I'm actually VERY much for the decriminalization of maryjane and I think we agree on that point. So the Asians (japanese, chinese, pakistanis, indians, etc.) who hold a disproportionately high number of engineering positions in most telecommunications companies must be products of the OUTSTANDING public schools they have in India and Pakistan? I think not. I think that you know better too, you'd just never admit it.
  16. Racist? Which race am I declaring superior in my post? Did I even mention any races in particular? Do you deny that there are differences between races when comparing averages?
  17. I'll be very interested to hear your opinions in about 20 years, you know, after living in the real world and escaping the utopian handcuffs of youth and liberally charged academia. Crack is dirty cocaine, considered more addictive, and worse for you. I'm glad there are stiffer penalties for crack. Apparently you'd like to see more crackheads on the street. There are no "delusions" of race. There have been NUMEROUS studies that the PC media will not cover which will show you that there are gaps in intelligence, predilection for violent crime, physical ability, alcoholism and other forms of substance abuse from race to race. Sociology apparently is a science of our imaginations according to your contorted views of equality and humanity.
  18. I think that you're jealous of the Twins, Yankees, Cubs, Astros, A's, Braves, and Giants fans while the rest of us are content rooting for the team that we've always loved, win or lose.
  19. nah, can't blast any negativity this evening sister.....BMR :fyou was the brunt of my frustration yesterday evening and tonight I think we're ALL feeling a bit in shock after having to watch 40,000 fishermen and fat women with bad perms shaking their homer hankees and inadvertently showing us all their underarms jiggling like raw dough or jello. Looked like a teacher I used to have in high school...i wanted to puke everytime she got to writing on the chalk board and her flabby underarms would bounce around :puke :puke :puke :puke :puke
  20. Saturday and Sunday in Boston were the last two games that they won that actually meant something. Thanks for the exaggeration though.
  21. I've read numerous articles this morning and one them stated that Este's sickness was listed on the medical chart that JM gets each game day. I'm assuming that JM would want to talk to him prior to letting him take the mound after seeing his illness on the list. If just watching the game we could tell that he wasn't himself both by appearance and performance, why couldn't JM sense the same thing when speaking to him face-to-face? Notice Este's post game comments, in one statement he says his illness "probably" affected his performance and in another statement said that there was "no way" he was going to tell JM he couldn't pitch. He's a competitor and it's JMs job to sit him...bottom line. And another report I read said that there was no team meeting/discussion prior to this game/series. I can't believe that. If you're ever going to have a team meeting to rally the troops, pump up the confidence, instill faith in your squad, it's before last night's game. No wonder these guys looked dead.
  22. Top 3 rebuttals when there is nothing to rebut:: 1. Criticism of spelling/gramatical errors 2. Unfounded age estimates 3. Ludicrous threats of personal harm I was just being honest, sorry you couldn't handle the criticism. You do post daily, and always negative. Do you not realize the level of your safe play, aka negativity? Have you read your own posts? Do you see that on the front page you have started 4 negative threads, not to mention your rampant negativity in threads you didn't start? You're nothing more than a f***ing chimp wearing a whig trying to entertain the rest of us.
  23. Dude, I may be new to this board but I must say that you're a f***ing pussy. You f***ing run your big f***ing yap about how heartless, horrible, awful, pathetic, underachieving, etc. this team is. Now you're hear to tell us that you were right all along. How f***ing big of balls do you have to have to be a pessimist? NONE. Only 1 team wins the championship, which means every other team fails. You've known all along that you were going to rub it in our faces that you were "right" about this team but if we somehow pull off a WS championship you know damn well no one will hold you accountable for all your negative bulls***, nor can they, because you somehow claim to be a true fan. You're not a f***ing fan, you're a big pessimistic pussy looking to be the board baseball genius. You're no genius asshat, it doesn't take much knowledge to be negative.
  24. I don't know about y'all, but I sure do wish Gary Glover was still in the pen to spot start. He wasn't good, but he wasn't near as bad as anything else we've seen this year out of the #5 spot.
