The New Joe Montgomery Birther Pit / Race in America thread
« on: August 01, 2018, 09:06:34 AM »
sys has been putting a lot of this kind of stuff in the college campus thread but it probably deserves its own thread.

Quote
The American middle class (predominantly white by definition) was created after World War II by way of federal programs like the VA, the FHA home programs and the G.I. Bill. This example of white welfare was one of the largest wealth-creation and intergenerational wealth-transfer programs in history. Again, African-Americans and other nonwhites were, for the most part, denied access to those opportunities. Today's extreme racial wealth gap is the most obvious result.

What economists and other social scientists describe as "the submerged state" — government programs such as mortgage interest deductions, capital gains and other tax credits and cuts, and financial subsidies for entire industries — is another example of white welfare. Whites are disproportionately overrepresented as beneficiaries of the submerged state. Moreover, the submerged state is a central means through which the racial wealth gap is maintained in so-called "post racial" "colorblind" America.

There is a complication. New research by Robb Willer, professor of sociology at  Stanford University, and Rachel Wetts, a researcher at the University of California, demonstrates that despite all the ways that government provided welfare programs to help them, white Americans are willing to cut such programs if they believe that African-Americans and other nonwhites may benefit.

The New Joe Montgomery Birther Pit / Too many secrets
« on: October 22, 2015, 09:26:17 AM »
So EmailGate has got me thinking, beyond the fact that Hillary is a bad person who shouldn't be president.

Why doesn't anyone question why we have so many secrets we are afraid of our taxpayers knowing? To me, that's a much bigger and scarier concern than Hillary breaking the law. We have a right to know what the eff we're paying for AND/OR we shouldn't be getting into crap like regime overthrowing and clandestine wars.

Thoughts without pitting this up?

Hey guys, couldn't watch the debate tonight, but looks like there was a ton of action in the "Will the CNN Demobait be good, awful, stupid or what?" thread, so I will review how our posters did ITT.

Kansas State Basketball / Mick Cronin and coaches not "coaching"
« on: March 24, 2015, 06:28:18 PM »
So Mick Cronin didn't "coach" any games after the new year, but he was still managing the program and recruiting and it obviously worked pretty well.

Would it make sense to have a head coach that didn't travel with the team or really deal with practice but only spent their time recruiting and researching recruits, and just kind of be like a GM? I mean, do you really need more than 3 coaches for 15 guys 100% of the time?

I know Frank had assistants miss shitty non-con games to go recruit, but what if you had someone do that full time? Maybe someone already does?

:dunno:

K-S-U's post got me thinking:

The 2% of Christians who don't believe in God at all would be an interesting group.

K-S-U puts Obama into that group.

I'm surprised that's such a controversial comment. The only church Obama attended with any regularity was Rev' Wright's BLT church in his district in Chicago, which he pretty plainly joined only for political expediency. Of course, no serious presidential candidate, or president, would admit to being an aetheist, but can you really look at Obama and tell me that "there's a man who believes in God"? He once slammed his opponents as "clinging to their religion." He's a typical far left liberal aetheist.

Will this continue to be an issue with the average voter in the coming years? How long will "Christian" be a requirement? Is it possible in the next 50 years?  :pray:
