Georgia State administration will make $1.2M Saturday when Georgia State players get curb-stomped against Wisconsin.

I don’t think Georgia State’s administration will get any of that money. Haven’t seen any numbers lately but would be willing to bet the football program still loses money.

I expect you’re right. To be clearer, I should have said that some entity of UW-Madison will write a big check to some entity of GSU as payment for the thumping they’ll deliver to the Panther football team Saturday. GSU is new to the game but they’ve learned you can’t justify operating at a loss unless you can point to growing revenue.

“Only 10 of the 205 Division 1-level athletic departments in the U.S. gave more money to their schools than what they received in subsidies. A whopping zero of those 10 schools are in Georgia meaning UGA, Tech, GSU and Southern are all guilty of corrupting their schools for the benefit of athletics.” — edatlanta

The Senate worked only three and a half days last week after a seven-week “August” recess. There are rumblings that this week they may focus on Obamacare, highlighting that measures that have virtually no chance of enactment are more important than their Constitutional duty to advise and consent with respect a Supreme Court nomination that has been pending for six months. Maybe McConnell will settle for a stop-gap funding bill, and then adjourn, since Dems need not co-operate, and a half dozen GOP Senators are facing robust challenges. Waiting 4 months for a new Congress to enact a budget makes… Read more »

Bad optics, indeed. But could you imagine the optics of not going to the 9/11 memorial service? She got sick. It happens. It’s especially prone to happen when you’re touring the country, not sleeping, and shaking hands with an untold number of people. Honestly, if we’re going to concern ourselves with Clinton’s health, can we be equally concerned about an overweight-looking 70 year-old man with a history of hard drug use and a penchant for posting selfies with KFC and McDonalds?

You’re hysterical! Defend her at all costs! LOL! “Nothing to see here, move along, move along…” “Really, now, are you gonna “bleve me or yore lyin’ eyes?” Questions have been asked about her health for months! Years, actually. If not for this episode caught on tape, yall would say the health concerns were all a “big conspiracy…” Gotta keep up that Narrative. As far as an over weight Trump, he isn’t stumbling around and being held up like the lead in Weekend at Bernie’s 2. So, no, there is not, nor should there be an “equal” amount of attention, at… Read more »

My brother and I live in two different states, plus its bow season up by him right now. On the plus side, I am researching gun ranges for a client, and have a field trip planed.

The article has historical context on gender based restrooms and a good example of universal design for individual rest rooms vs. mega gang restrooms. Most of the issues people have with ‘protecting the safety of the womenfolk’ can be resolved by better design options but building codes force gang restrooms with multiple stalls over self contained toilet rooms.

Then I will leave this issue in your always capable hands!

Will,

As you are big on blasting the GOP Presidential nominee your time could be spent on other GOP concerns like Hillary or good things going on, To be true, for sure you have registered with some other party by now.

In regard to the Boston article on demographic changes in Georgia being stressful…..IMO Trump, who is called out on immigration concerns, more likely is in the group with Chairman Chaffetz on criminal illegals and the Feds getting a grip on the lack of will to manage immigration.

From the linked monopoly piece In the 1930s, Brandeis argued that large companies would inevitably exploit their workers, convert their profits into political influence, and corrode both the market and the machinations of government. But the Reagan administration and subsequent lawmakers have allowed vertical and horizontal integration on the theory that economies of scale often benefit both employees and consumers. Tell me then…who was right? (hint…it wasnt Bork) Its staggering when you think of the number of companies we deal with on a daily basis that either control the market or have a majority stake. Dont like the cable co?… Read more »

Just an FYI…
Just got off the phone with Stallone. After a brief discussion, I’ve convinced him that his next project should be, not the next installment of the “Expendables” but a new offering called the “Deplorables” which lucky enough for me, I’ll be offered a rather large cameo for bringing him the idea! It’s about all the folks that Hilly insulted this past Friday. Maybe a smattering of Bitter Clingers, too!

If you actually listen to the clip, Clinton insinuated that the “deplorables” are the racist, Islamaphobic, xenophobic, homophobic, sexist, anti-Semetic cretins flocking to Trump because he gives a voice to their hatred. 80% of Trump voters in the SC primary supported a total ban on Muslims entering the US, 62% supported a national database for Muslims, 40% supported shutting down all mosques in the US, 33% thought the practice of Islam should be criminalizes, 31% supported a ban on homosexuals entering the US. A NY Times poll from February showed that 20% of Trump supporters oppose the Emancipation Proclaimation. Clinton… Read more »

Drew, you’re defending the undefendable in this particular point. Nothing short of a full apology from her for her remarks will make this die down. You have to admit the political stupidity of her comments. Her opponents aren’t going to let this go. Just like you and I taking separate sides, except on a bigger scale. Your side still has, it appears, a bigger likelihood of winning in November. We’ll obviously see if this does any real damage. Having our differences on almost every issue, lets us have a beer one day!

I will not and cannot defend the Deplorables. The trailer park,meth heads, KKK wannabees,Florida cretins, Confederate flag waving assholes supporting Trump. If these are your relatives, your cousins, yourself in the mirror, God help you because the world has passed you by and you are considered trash and disposable.

Oh, Mannnnn!! Love it! Keep posting, Cat!! Should I be quaking in my boots about your “disposable” comment!? What a complete and absolute fool! LMAO!!
