  1. So you see no benefits to the taxpayer if Amazon decides to bring 50,000 jobs to the Baltimore area?
  2. And therein lies the chance for a savvy American entrepreneur to make some money... Step 1: Gather all the recently removed statutes in a large building. Step 2: Mount a plaque in front of each statute that contains the most salacious collection of truths, half-truths, rumors and gossip about the person(s) depicted in the statue. Step 3: Roll out a multi-media advertising campaign featuring such phrase as "SEE THE STATUTES THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO SEE!!" or "FOR THE 1ST TIME, COLLECTED IN ONE PLACE, THE ARTWORK BANNED BY THE GOVERNMENT!!". Step 4: Open for business and start raking in the cash. Oh, and don't forget the sign "MINIATURES OF THE STATUTES YOU HAVE JUST SEEN ARE ON SALE IN OUR GIFT SHOP.".
  3. I can't take seriously an article which contains the following: "But despite his ability to win individual battles, his decision to fight a conventional war against the more densely populated and industrialized North is considered by many historians to have been a fatal strategic error." The decision as to what type of war to fight against the North was made not by Lee but by the CSA's civilian government.
  4. You mean like those White civil disobedience icons Gandhi and MLK Jr.?
  5. Sure you did. "The team's record has nothing to do with his ability to play."
  6. Well OK then, I'll be sure I give the problem the measured consideration you seem to think it deserves.
  7. Wow, you actually believe that a QB's play has nothing to do with his teams record.
  8. So your answer to the question is "No". Now, provide some supporting evidence.
  9. "If the NFL (as well as all professional sports leagues) is to remain a meritocracy, then principled and peaceful political protests -- which the owners themselves made great theater imitating weeks ago -- should not be punished and athletes should not be denied employment based on partisan political provocation by the Executive Branch of our government.” If the NFL is to remain a meritocracy, then it doesn't employ a guy who is 3-16 in his last 19 games. Case closed.
  10. Two sides with long standing animosities continually fighting each other instead of working together to solve problems that they have in common. Sound familiar, America?
  11. C'mon man, this a huge nationwide problem affecting Black lives from NYC to Ruther Glen, VA. Big problems call for big solutions and big solutions require wide spread acknowledgement. Now how you going to get that acknowledgment with just a few athletes taking a knee once a week. Think big ala Gandhi & MLK Jr. Large scale civil disobedience is the key and should be easy to achieve when one considers the number of Blacks affect by our evil society. Get off your butt and get busy organizing. Get a few dozen friends, handcuff yourself together and lie down across all the lanes of the JFX during rush hour.
