Here's a thread!

If you don’t actually click on the links in that thread it looks pretty bad for Pete but the articles themselves are not that damning.  Two of the articles are about supporting the gentrification of South Bend. The horror.

For some people it's a big deal, for me it's a deal breaker. My great grandmother, the only great parent I ever knew, her house, neighborhood, and many childhood memories for me were razed in gentrification for Bricktown in okc. I can't take my kids to the place I spent a lot of time at and, made many memories. White people, for the most part, don't have to worry about that

That's an interesting take.

lol, glad I could help. I couldn't give two shits about what king white bread thinks about my personal view of gentrification.
You are of course entitled to your personal views of whatever. Your comment just made me reflect on the current appearance of the various stomping grounds of my youth, and it made me wistful. That reflection made me realize I have no control over the economic forces that shape the various places I have lived, though they remain in my memory and dreams in a special sheen.

I'm sure you have loads of relevant experience in having your friends and families entire neighborhood knocked down for a fake river, a Dave and Busters, and some condos, only to not have affordable housing put in.

So my journey has taken me to where I should have been in the first place. Warren's support of Ilhan Omar, her unapologetic progressive agenda, and her well stated plan on paying for student loan forgiveness, I'm team Liz and I ain't leaving. I'll probably support the Democratic candidate no matter what unless it's Biden. Trump is winning Iowa in the general anyway, so who cares if I vote green or independent?

They act like he has an obligation to be uber-liberal because he’s gay.

Or in a field of 20 candidates a party of liberals are finding out they aren't enamored with a moderate the more they find out about him.

I love that this thread has turned into several moderate Republicans outraged that liberals aren't willing to throw away their convictions before the primaries even start because they are stuck with a dumb crap, pathological lying, psychopath as their representative. I can't wait to see the outrage when the democrats collectively crap all over Joe W. Obiden-Clinton and he gets Jeb'd out of the primaries.

That's perfect

i mean, it's perfectly reasonable to think that bernie '16 supporters are trash and mumped over clinton and also think that clinton '08 supporters are trash but weren't able to eff over obama despite their best efforts.  and it's rational to have different emotional responses to those groups based upon outcome.


fwiw, most '08 clinton/mccain voters are now 'pubs (or dead).

I think there a measurable number of Bernie primary voters who weren't democrats, those people, ME, didn't screw Hillary at all.

The teams left in the West, and the Bruins, can get all the way mumped, except for the Blues I guess but I hate their fans so much. Canada shut out again, lol.

Lol, travel back in time 5 minutes and put the blazers game on.

You got a time machine or some crap? That still wasn't 5 minutes ago.

Wanted you to catch most of the comeback leading up to it.

Got to see most of the comeback during intermission of the hockey game. C.J. is a friend of a friend

I've never seen this, looks like a minesweeper knockoff. I spent way too much time in the Seaton Hall computer lab playing minesweeper.

Listen to me, I love the crap out of the NBA Playoffs, my first sports memory is Bobby Jones, Moses Malone, and Dr. J winning the 1983 finals, but what's going on right now in the Sharks Golden Knights 1st round nhl playoff game might be the greatest thing in the last 50 years of sports. I'm about to stroke the eff out.

Beckett magazine

We had a trend in middle school where we would wear basketball cards in hard cases on lanyards. I wore Blair Rasumssen and David Robinson

This one! July 1993. What a year.

I’m generally in favor of a single payer system, but I don’t really GAF what a candidate’s position is on it as long as they have a well reasoned position. The next No president is not gonna make single payer happen.
