Baylor is a private Baptist University who put a #1 priority in building a new high dollar stadium in Waco Texas. Their football team built that stadium. Not class rooms, not lowering the cost of a kid to go there but a football stadium. To make that a GOOD INVESTMENT the team has to win. Football in the college world today is huge business. College's today are more like the pro's to win is money. When a great college potential player comes to visit the college they are not shown the school of whatever field they may be interested in assuming they even have one but no the important thing to show them is how easy it is at that place to get a good time that only football players get. At Baylor sexual behavior was an open door for the foot ball team and grades were not important. But that is the case in almost any football program in Any School. To win in football is more important than what they teach. Baylor was just expected to have a higher standard. Ken Starr didn't cause it but he left a school that would not do or allow what Baylor did and he did it for a title and money. The small college in Ca. where Mr Starr used to be head guy was also a Christian School but they did have a higher bar and not a winning football team.
oropan Gun laws has never in the past nor today take away what you consider to be your second amendment rights.
States and Cities have always had to right to pass laws to allow the carrying of guns and how and when and if they can be carried. Not once has any SC EVER said that the States and cities did not have the right to regulate gun ownership and the "baring" of arms.
You are the one who wants to rewrite our const It is the RED STATES that have taken away the rights of cities to control their own area of responsibility. If their is a heavy handed behavior now days it comes from the right wingers who run a state like yours and the state then takes away the right of a city or county in that state to regulate guns within their city area.
Tombstone Ariz was a territory when the gun fight at the OK happened by your way of thinking the Earp's were the bad guys. Due process is when citizens by elections pass a law and then the courts will decide if that law is a legal law or not.
Do you see anything in the Second Ad. about felons not having a gun or people who are mentally ill?You think some both criminals and mentally ill fought against the Brits and were part of the militia. Do you see that no cannon can be owned by someone? So what makes that illegal now?What gives the Federal Gov to say NO to criminals having guns or mentally ill folks or no machine guns (a joke since an assault rifle is the same) saw off shotgun, artillery pieces etc.The 1934 law took away a lot of those type weapons and NEVER has been found to be illegal. In 1968 more gun control was passed and NEVER has the SC found it illegal or without due process.
You saying it does not make it the truth. It is your opinion and your idea of due process or the law.not of the people.
Why do you care when people get gunned down that is the price for you guys to have your so called 2nd amendments rights pay the butcher bill and hope it never becomes family in that bill.
oropan your too slow and stupid to get a job working at a fast food place and the big thing is you do not need a job that bad.
People like you ask questions like the one you did and it is repeated and repeated and soon it the fact basis of the right wing nut jobs. That is how you get your "facts" Just keep saying what you believe over and over again and soon it will become what you believe. You boys better have been saying DT will win DT will win, DT will win. Just keep saying that and clicking your heels together and believe. That is your speed.
No way to see a quarter like last quarter with these rates. .30 dividend maybe.
I do hope you feel the same way about all those Gov give aways to oil and gas industry? And to the Agro business. Why do you anti solar folks only point out the Gov give aways to the solar business. Why don't you want all Gov give away to ALL BUSINESS done away with? Are they not all bad for taxpayers? Why do you support the min wage and have tax payers pick up the difference to keep the min employee in food with food stamps? Shouldnt the fast food business at least have to let the under paid employees eat free three times a day? You seem to pick and choose who you want your tax dollars going too who is worthy and who is not.
No difference between tax dollars going to solar companies than to oil companies or Nuke companies or to Agro business to prop up the price of corn or beef. All Corp wellfare. Grow you some and be against it all why don't you. I am going to take another big hairy diggler into the tiolet while you try to grow some.
oropan elitists like me lol. I got my training in assault rifles at Fort Polk La and got my advanced training in the Republic of south Viet Nam. Unlike your backwoods animals the Viet Cong and the NVA shoot back.
DT a draft dodger wants to tell me about gun rights and how to use a gun lol. How many night fire fights you been in oropan? those backwoods big game shoot back at you do they? Lots of city boys learned how to shoot and kill in the US Military and unlike the gun nuts who go around with their assault rifles slung down over their bodies. To sling your gun while in the field just didn't happen. Do you actually hunt with a gun in a sling or ready to fire position? lol. Tell me oropan in those back woods you hunt much at night?
Would you like to be in the woods at night full of night hunters? The more armed hunters at night in the woods the safer you feel eh oropan? Now make it a bunch of armed night hunters who have never hunted at night. Felling safer now?
nikk here is the WI law on carrying a gun in a bar.
"Exceptions are having a license, and that the owner or manager of can give permission for someone (without a license) to carry openly. When carrying (openly or concealed) on a license, alcohol may not be consumed on the premises. When carrying openly with permission of the owner or manager, it is legal to consume alcohol as long as you do not become "materially impaired". It is legal to carry a handgun into a store that sells alcohol for the express purpose of being consumed elsewhere (a liquor or grocery store)."
Again the good folks of WI are more gun nuts than the CEO of the NRA. What you bet the CEO has to back up on his " No one is saying to arm people in a night club" It seems a lot of the states controlled by right wing GOP gun nuts are saying just that.
Not only that but the cry baby right wing GOP states that hate the Fed Gov telling the States what to do also pass laws that cities within their state can not pass a city or county law that is not in totally agreement with the state law. So a city which pays for its own police force can not pass a law that says no guns allowed in a night club.
The NRA has fallen behind the gun barrel sucking states it seems lol. Who would ever of thought that. The NRA the voice of reason on drinking and gun toting. The GOP the voice of nut jobs.
scs are you really that stupid? The comparison was about the Gov paying for underfunded private pensions from American Corp's. The pension money would be given by the Gov when the private company failed to a go of its business regardless of the reason. The FDIC would be given to customers of banks that failed regardless of the reason. In both cases your and my tax payer dollars are used to pay out what the private Corp failed to do as they promised they would.
Banks are indeed more regulated than other Capitalist business because they get much more Gov support than any other Capitalist business gets from both the US Gov and the FED and the FDIC is there to soothe the nerves of the customers to the tune of 250,000 bucks.
FRO is not a US Corp thus their pensions plans if they have any would not be made up for a FRO bk.
However many of the E&P boys that are going BK may end up getting unfunded handouts.
Just for the record I never said I was against either which frankly I am not. I think the FED and the FDIC saved the American Banks from a run in 2008 by raising the amount of protected money to 250,000 grand.
The Gov failure to regulate private pension funds more than they do is one reason that they end up having to shore up underfunded plans or plans that fail due to BK of the company. In Fact the Gov even allows Corps to RAID pension funds and plans of corp's they buy out and use money that was for the pension program to be used for other company business then when the company fails to honor the pension the Gov picks up the tab. But if the Gov is going to allow companies to pay the min wage to employees then pay the employees housing and food stamps to make up for the company they work for paying enough money for the employee to live why should one Gov hand out be any different than another? Tax payers eat it in all cases so eat drink and be merry for tomorrow your taxes will go to pay somebody for something.
lets roll Most capitalist in Ameria by a HUGE majority are white. To not attack the capitalist white boys who hire the illegals who are 90% not white seems to me to raise the possiblity that racism is alive and well.
We hate the illegals, we want to stop them from "coming into our country" we want to spend billions on a wall and billions more to man it to keep out the non whites folks but what we do not want to do is pass a law that makes it illegal for rich white capitialist to hire these illegals once they have gotten into our country.
You tell me rolling boy why is that? Why would those who provide a job be so over looked while those that do the work, pay taxes and spend money in the USA are the enemy that is worth spending billions of tax dollars on? Go on tell me why you do not want to see hiring illegals made a felony or at least a stiff fine for even the first offense?
Scs is a long ago proven racist by his defense of rje racist statements. If you defend a racist and refuse to call racism wrong then you be one. Now you going to explain to me why you defend capitalist who are 90% white and go after non whites who work for them. Oh yea they work for them for lower wages than your white capitalist would have to pay an American Citizen too. Come on buddy boy tell me why you defend these guys who hire illegals you might be one maybe?
scs that article also said that 7% of grades K-12 were illegal children. According to the Nat. center for education they were around 50 million kids in 2012 in K-12 so that means 3.5 million where illegals.
So add your 8.1 and the 3.5 and you get more illegals working and looking for work than the 11.3 million number. If we say that the unemployment rate is 5% in the USA lets double that for illegals shall we?
Make it 10% or 15% or 1.2 million looking for work and 6.9 million working and 3.5 million in school.
Does not leave much in the way for all those other things you say they come for. But I guess you will now claim that the parents or one of them brings their kids to the US for an education? Even so they are still kids and the parents do either work or try too. End the work and you end the jobs for those who would bring their kids. It is the cost of the kids that offends most right wingers anyway if you guys would tell the truth all those kids going to tax paid for public schools. Now we see a number that the number of illegals in public schools sucking up all that rich white people tax dollars is ONLY 7%. So much for all the cost that illegal kids are suppose to be costing in tax dollars. In Texas schools are paid for by property taxes of which an illegal pays into when they rent so some of the cost of their kids they are paying taxes on. Being poor they do not live in high dollar rental propery but the same applies to any poor person legal or illegal.
You don't like that stop the jobs and you will cut that 11 million way down or at least the current flow into the US and if jobs really did go away by 80% some would lose their job and leave.
You choice pay for a wall that will not work as good as ending jobs. But a Wall does not bother American Capitalism as much as putting greedy Capitalist in jail for hiring illegals. Most of the Capitalist are white are they not lol. Racism?
The Fed backs up those who put their money in failed banks up to 250,000 grand so just another big business bail out and allows them to be reckless in how they honor their commitments to either employees or customers as they reckless over pay the CEO and other top ex's and take undo risks. Its called capitalism with a Federal safety net for the suckers who put money into these "risk takers" Too bad FRO does not have a Gov bail out for money lost by investing who knows one day the rich might get that passed then they could really enjoy a good BK even more than DT enjoyed the BK he has done.
The CEO of the NRA says "no one is saying to arm people drinking in a night club" Really?
Texas GOP running Texas says that is ok. You can carry your concealed gun or non concealed gun into a club in Texas or a beer joint and drink away you just can't drive home legally but you can stagger all the way home with a gun and be totally legal. Booze and Gun is a good mix in Texas. I think Texas is not the only state either. Back in the 70's I was working undercover in ARk in a bar and found out that I was one of the few not carrying a gun. In Texas back then you could not carry a gun into a bar it was a felony if you did but Ark had a different law and it was ok. Now Texas says it is just fine to drink and carry a gun. What will get you put in jail for driving with a decreased ability to think and react while driving is just fine in Texas as far as a gun is concerned. I do not know what the law is in Ark now and don't care.
The NRA CEO has more brains than the Gov of Texas and all the gun barrel sucking GOP right wing gun nuts that run the state. Drinking and driving is just toooooo dangerous but drinking and having a gun is just fine.
Now that is just plain stupid but not to the GOP boys in Texas. I shoot off a round on that one lol.
DT back peddling his way away from what he said about having folks drinking and carrying but why DT?
Texas boys thinks it a smart thing to do. It appears that Tenn, Geo, Vir and Ariz are like Texas as well as mixing gun and booze.
The level for being drunk While driving is an old part of Texas law but the gun law for not being drunk and carrying a gun does not have what is considered drunk or what is just drinking. You got to love those GOP gun barrel suckers who write the law. Mothers Against Drunk Driving wrote the DWI laws for them too bad Mothers with a brain didn't write the gun laws for this bunch of idiots.
scs I went to your article and you should as well.
11.3 million in the country and 8.1 working that is NOT 60% it is 71.6 % and that does not address or mention WHY they cam into the country only the raw numbers.
Overall the site has some good interesting facts and numbers but again it is hard to say how accurate the numbers are since illegal are not in the habit of talking to strangers with paper and pen in hand nor can they speack in English and why should they? But if we take the raw numbers 8.1 million are WORKING and have jobs which should be illegal to hire them that means that over 70% of the illegals here are supporting themselves because of job furnished by Americans who are breaking the law or should be if a law was passed.
That site showed that the numbers are up for families and children coming into the country of late and without jobs why would you bring your family to a strange country?
That site shows that the vast majority of all Americans believe that some type of law needs to be passed to allow them to stay and continue to work citizenship way or legal alien working towards that goal. Even the GOP who responded were about 50-50 in how they viewed this and Demo and Indies were large in favor of such a law. The right wing of the GOP stands like a Wall against the will of the majority of the American people as they do in gun control as well. Face it scs your right wing ideas are in the minority of the American public.
Build your wall waste tax dollars. Hire more high paid Federal employees to man the wall and to catch those who defeat it.
Fight another losing battle America seems to enjoy losing wars that they can not win. Bar ALL MUSLIM's for as long as it takes and hire more Federal Employees to seek out any who make sneak in through Canada since that would be their way of choice. The right wing enjoys chasing its tail and wasting money it seems with all the enemies they see under their beds ready to get them.
scs "from what Ive read" just where did you read this and do you actually think they went around and interviewed illegals and asked them if they were working and "IF" they had you expect them to tell the truth "IF" they could speak whatever tongue the illegal spoke in?
Sorry SCS Not buying yout 60% idea but thanks for letting me know.
And I will admit that my 95% was too high after thinking about the "Whole" illegal issue. So many illegals have lived in this country for a number of years and not just "wet" from crossing so they are children who do come across both with parents and alone to join up with family already here. They will have a much harder time finding work and most of them I would "guess" are coming to escape wherever they come from and to be with family work or no work. They are also illegals who have been here so long they are retired from work and live with family and some do get SS since they worked their 40 Quarters.
Some like the girl who was valedictorian of McKinney Tex HS attended school and did not work and now would go on to college and later contribute to our country if she is not dragged or kicked out by right wingers who see all illegals with the same glasses.
So my 95% was wrong just as I think your 60% figure is wrong as well.
Given that you claim 50% of all illegals are Mexican that would you think all those other cat. which you claim they come for is what is bringing Mexican's to the US.
There may be a lot of reason they leave their home country but it is the US job market that is the goal of the vast majority of those who come.
Without a job they find themselves without most of their family and friends ties in a strange country that does not speak the same tongue as they do with almost everyone looking in way or another to give them a hard look at the least and they are also illegal. The idea of a job and better life is what makes them take that step or a great majority of them.
diggler you still hiding your real ID I see. I don't blame you I be ashamed of myself if I was you too.
samps your sure not a joke at least not to me. Your a very dangerous fool.
scs so you tell me what % do you see as coming here for jobs? I like to know how you think on this.
How do they do what they do? You have not been poor have you nor have you had much contact with the poor. They do not live in nice houses like you do or drive nice cars or eat out or go to movies most live in low rent space which they share. They have very few cloths and pay as little as possible for what they have. Their eating bill is very low because the poor know how to live on beans and rice and chicken unlike you.
I never said a yard man does not make above the min wage most do. I never said that those who work on road construction or build houses do not get the min wage or more.
Those that do manage to find work you say then you or some other right winger will cry out THERE ARE TAKING JOBS FROM AMERICAN'S. Just which is it? How many unemployed American maids do you think is going around or unemployed yard workers?
Nursing home and motel staff, kitchen staff?
You right winger flip flop around more than a chicken with its head cut off if your old enough to ever of seen that.
If you can vote your boy Trump into office build your wall and do not pay for it nor the people to man it nor the people to catch those that scale over it, around it or under it or just blow a hole in it with explosives all easy if you do not man the wall. See how all that works out for you budget minded so called conservatives. Tell me how did GW great Fence wall work? How does having three times as many high paid Federal Law enforcement people working for the Gov fighting illegals and "terrrorism" (what a joke and waste of money that all is) If you want to fool yourself into thinking that over 95% of illegals come to America to work be my guest but do not expect me to be that stupid.
There is not cure for stupid and if you think a wall will stop the illegal problem that is what you are stupid.
sleep What or Which GOP party do you mean? The old GOP is gone. They are eating their own in their primaries if not right wing enough. The eco conservatives and moderate GOP are RHINO's to the right wing GOP. They do have a common enemy in Demo's and that is the only thing in common the GOP factions have.
That will hurt turnout some I believe as you do but how much remains to be seen. If DT does not stop being DT which so far he has not then I see 45-47% of vote as about as good as the GOP will do.
A lot of old time eco GOP types may indeed vote for HC as she does get alone well with the walstreet boys and bankers were DT is a big scary unknown. Long way from Nov however.
