  1. I wonder if the Clintons finally had enough of this, especially considering where they are in the election cycle. Because there is no news here as far as she is concerned.
  2. How so (other than in his own mind)?
  3. I think two things will happen at once: Trump will realize that he never wanted the job (he wanted to BE president, but that's different) and his son in law will deliver the news to him that Clinton would personally have to kill someone to lose. At that point it's just an exit plan. The problem is that the RNC can't come up with one.
  4. This is the article that brought Mr. Kahn to the attention of the DNC. Apologies if it was previously posted. Originally he was asked to just stand on stage with other gold star families. Weeks later he was asked if he wanted to say a few words. He was offered speech writing assistance and told them he knew what he wanted to say. http://www.vocativ.com/259159/the-father-of-a-muslim-war-hero-has-this-to-say-to-donald-trump/
  5. Does This Bus Stop would've been more appropriate.
  6. I want to be Chickenman.
  7. Gun owner.
  8. You guys might be joking but I am not. There's no reason an artist like Bruce couldn't write/sing a song like this. He'd get (back) a large amount of respect from me if he did.
  9. I'm sure there are figure$ somewhere on the potential upside to the games in China.
  10. Seems to me that the NBA players have a different cause on their minds, I can't recall the last statement from a player that I read about this issue, and in any event New Orleans would be one of the last places they would pick to move the game to. On the matter of voting, I wish there was someone here from NC who could explain how the state was gerrymandered, and how both Greensboro and Charlotte are bastions of liberalism. Their elected officials (Vaughn and Roberts) are watching this in horror.
  11. PayPal founder - who pulled his new facility out of NC because of HB 2 - endorses Trump.
  12. Was that before or after they stood around talking on their phones and not helping him?
  13. The alternative is to honor your commitments. In the case of Bruce, throw a free outdoor concert that weekend near the statehouse - it would've been all over the news. Take all of HIS income from the show and donate it to the cause. Play He's The One on stage. Get some Tshirts with the message out. Write an op-ed, longer than the few sentences of his original, inadequate remarks, explaining what's at stake. I can go on and on. None of this would've been simple or easy. Bruce said he had no choice. I disagree.
  14. Do you folks really think that one set of poor people wash out another? That's cold. This has little to do with the NBA brand and everything to do with money - the harassment of Nike, UA and the other sponsors that started months ago and would only get worse. They put the pressure on the league to move. From what I understand about NC politics, this law was not the will of the people, but the result of highly engineered redistricting.
  15. Sure another economy will be enriched, but that's beside the point. This fragile economy will be punished for something outside of their control, and in the case of Greensboro, without any warning. The Charlotte taxpayers who spent the money relying on the payback - the mom and pops who could have built ten schools, or a new hospital, or seen lower taxes - they won't get anything.
