  2. Look, I'm really careful about telling other parents how to deal with their shit. I think it's hard to put yourselves in the shoes of a parent whose adolescent has those issues. Is society glorifying gender identity choice? Yes, but that's a separate issue. Regardless, I know people, who I believe are good parents, whose kid underwent a sex change during their teenage years, and I am reluctant to have an opinion on the matter because I'm not in that situation. It gets complicated at a micro level. But the sports thing, I don't phucking understand it. I really don't. Of course womens and girls sports should be limited to biological women and girls. There isn't a rational argument against it.

  7. Is there a country America has phukked over more than we have Iran? Maybe a South American country? Removed democratically elected president, installed puppet dictator loyal to US. Supported Iraq in war against Iran, death toll 1 million +. 200 million dollars in military equipment to Iraq, 5 billion dollar loan to Saddam, US Navy escorted Iraqi oil tankers, etc.. Started wars on both sides of its borders, surrounded the country with US military bases

Washington State University Athletics has entered into a conference affiliation agreement to have their baseball and women's swimming programs participate in the Mountain West Conference, it was announced Tuesday. The agreement will begin July 1, 2024. https://wsucougars.com/news/2024/4/16/cougar-baseball-and-swimming-join-mountain-west-conference-as-affiliate-members.aspx

  13. WSU Fan here, new to this board (still trying to figure out my picture, etc. Loyal Coug). Yes, most of my idiot Coug brethren are determined to believe that the ACC will fall apart and come calling to the Pac-2 to help form some multi-division, coast to coast. still P4 league, and along the way snag several Mt West teams. F-that. I remain steadfast in the notion that we just reverse merge with the Mt West, retaining the Pac name and with that our future NCAA BB distributions, and avoiding any buyout fees as the MW will cease to exit. Toss out a couple teams if you want at your discretion, but we need 12 total so 10+. All if you desire. Related, it is well known that we have a bushel full of cash coming. Good - OSU and WSU need it. But not to spend recklessly on buyouts and league blackmail (not talking MW on that one). The reverse merger would be basically free to both sides. MW retains whatever assets and NCAA allocations it has, as does the Pac-2. Eliminate this BSU premium day one. Share and share alike, as WSU was able to with its heavyweight Pac-12 brethren (aka traitorous 10). We eliminate on league office and bloated staff (ours, replacing them with Gloria and gang). Hopefully bring along a couple of our higher profile Bowl Stay out West where we belong. As a midsize, land-grant institution, we fit in with the MW. Always have. F the CFP.

  14. The thing that never gets talked about whenever new Civil War rhetoric gets thrown around is the likelihood of China and Russia exerting influence both covertly and militarily. A Civil War scenario is their wet dream. If a Civil War were to pop off, there will be no American winners. Everything we know now will be gone forever. China and Russia will be there to pick up the pieces. I've been gone from here too long. Life circumstances. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things. I've actually missed you clowns.

  19. It's complicated, Jack. The Gang of 8's plan a decade back died and things are more complicated now. Good luck trying to get the old visa caps lifted. Good luck on anything as the recent bill went down in politically motivated flames. Immigration involves human life. It's not all about human life, but it often is and there is no way around that. There are also laws which if you really want them all enforced go to human rights. We have a growing backlog of asylum seekers over a million (figures vary). Gotta follow the law there. Same for designated refugees. Even with Biden raising the cap dramatically over the xenophobic Trump reductions for refugees, it still pales in relation to the global displacement of as many as 100 million people now in the wake of a pandemic, wars, civil unrest, persecution, and violence. It's a nasty world out there and the push factors and outright displacement after 2020 have been immense. Some folks take the end of Matthew 25 to heart. Real religion requires sacrifice. Yes, our system has long been broken. Just ask Devin Nunes' cow. Ironic that the ag and food industries among a few others so heavily depend on immigrant labor and a large share of it illegal. It's the dirty little not secret at all fact of the labor markets. And, in this current labor situation, there isn't a practical solution w/o illegal labor. There is not the collective will to extract that labor because of the damage it would cause to employers and the economy in general. So, what to do? Beats the hell out of me because more than executive action is needed and we can't pass legislation and reforms. If we could, we should raise caps on the various work visas and refugees (ex. action may be limited), and establish large, safe, humane camps for the overflow so the interior is not overwhelmed by numbers (I don't have clear criteria for this, but I feel it's needed for now and the near future). We should streamline all processes in a rationale manner, and then more tightly enforce those individual and employer laws. And, it is essential that global efforts are coordinated to stem outflows of peoples as near to their geographies as possible. It does not help homelands to lose their populations. It's an age old problem of resource drain.

I am against castration, as well as genital mutilation of anyone, regardless of whether or not it is done in a small village in Somalia for religious reasons, or in a doctor's office, for secular religious reasons, and "mental health." I'm also against men pretending to be women, in order to dominate women's sports.

  27. There is no denying the perspective shift is going to hurt WSU and OSU for a bit as their alumni and fans work through this era. But the MW has a real opportunity to level up IMO. There are a few factors that really help this conf as opposed to the others at the so called G5 level. Of the FBS conferences, the MW is the best in hoops, that's not in the power club and we have arenas and attendance comparable to the PAC. In addition, once WSU and OSU join, we will have at least 4 members with rivalries with teams in power conferences(this matters in terms of home game value for broadcast rights). WSU/OSU/CSU/USU all have power conference rivals. And most of the schools that don't have P5 rivals are pretty much the only game in town (UNM, NEV, Fresno, SDSU, BSU, HAW, WYO). This matters in the NIL era as the local CFB team can become more like a pro team with the ability to have their local stars make money promoting local and regional businesses. The MW is going to be the only non-power conference representing a region that is mostly dominated by the MW(instead of the 2nd or 3rd tier conf of the region) conf aside from CU in Colorado and Utah/BYU in Utah. WAZZU is in a completely different part of the state from UW. OSU falls into the CSU/USU category of being closer to their rival, but I don't think that hurts the MW in any of those cases tbh.

  30. Jack Black & White. Immigration has real issues and problems. Too much, too rapidly has caused historic disruptions. Hyper-diversity in some communities is problematic. It disallows social cohesion and broader community building. For these, and other reasons, unregulated immigration and the current overflow are not good things. But, in the long run, immigration has been a mainstay of American exceptionalism. From much needed labor to small business formation to the sciences. Look at last year's and this century's American Nobel Prize science categories' winners. Foreign-born Americans punch way above their weight. https://nfap.com/research/immigrants-and-nobel-prizes-1901-2023/ We want immigration. We need it to sustain economic growth and continue to revitalize society as it has throughout our history. My paternal grandparents were immigrants from Sweden. Ireland on the other side. They had families that served in WWII, built businesses, worked in industry, bought homes, raised families, etc. Without immigration, the USA faces a similar demographic decline as most other developed nations. Well, there are some w/a certain environmentalists' viewpoint who want population decline to save the earth, but I don't think that's the best plan for America. Jack Black & White, I'm not posting to change your mind. Just had a little time before stuff I need to do.

  31. The list is correct with these few notes 1) T&M never had a 19,500 capacity unless the floor was used for a concert or boxing where seats could be added - Initial seating was 18,500 when built, but remodels over the years have cut in to 17,00-17,500 2) MGM Grand Garden might get 17,000 if the floor is used for seating, I think its in the 15,000-16,000 range for a BB game 6) DLC now Lee's Family Forum is more in the 5,500 seat capacity for hockey , maybe 5,700-5,900 for the Volley Ball team -- And this will be the new home of the NLL LV Desert Dogs 7) South Point Arena is mainly for equestrian events & doesn't do much in the way of traditional sports There is talk of a new 18K+ NBA arena to be built on vacant land adjacent to I-15 / LV Blvd South / Blue Diamond / Warm Springs - this might be the home of the expansion NBA team Then there's the AAA LV Aviators baseball stadium and the USL LV Lights play at old Cahsman Field which has been slightly modified for soccer -- This is where the LV Vipers of the XFL/UFL played for a season or two

  39. I don't support any of that bullshit. I've laid out what should be done including opening large processing camps in the SW to deal w/the mass flow. It's probably the only practical short term, humane way to balance important goals and laws. Your posting on the subject indicates a lack of caring about human life. There are asylum and refugee laws that have to be followed, but you don't seem to care about those laws nor the human life they are in place to protect and aid.

  40. No---its not complicated, we have borders that we can control if we want to. Crossing our border illegally is not a legal or human right. 99+% of these folks are economic migrants, not asylum seekers....like the Biden admin wants to call/classify them. Asylum seekers used to have to document their standing now they are just let in. We cant control a global problem, but we can sure as hell control ours by honestly interpreting our laws to benefit us...not just one political party. The millions of military aged men are not tradesman, nurses or engineers that we need. Biden is actively inviting the world to break our laws....and they will come. Calling folks xenophobic, that want lawful immigration is.... well.... to be real honest, distasteful and dishonest. I really take offense to that.

  41. I was just at the start of summer break after 7th grade when the murders went down in June 1994. I remember the day watching the press conference where the police chief announced that he was charged with murder and failed to turn himself and then later in the day when he and AC drove the Bronco across LA to then surrender at his home. I would say he was the first black athlete to successfully parlay his fame from being an athlete to celebrity status. He really did have it all and then threw it away. If you ever have the chance, watch the ESPN documentary “OJ: Made in America”. It’s a long watch (like 8 hours) but probably the best documentary I’ve ever seen. Goes into his athletic and entertainment career, his years of spousal abuse towards Nicole, and obviously spends a considerable amount of time on the murders and the trial, but also delves into the history of racial tension in Los Angeles in the decades leading up to the trial and how those incidents impacted the outcome. Goes right up to the robbery in Vegas and being incarcerated at Lovelock. Amazing watch.

  46. Jack, we are in the midst of a political realignment. Exactly how it eventually shakes out is still to be determined, but the liberal-conservative construct (how to view ideology) is even more flawed now than a decade back. The main part of the political realignment involves the Republican Party which has become something other than a reflection of conservative values. It's become largely populist. Many Americans fit right in there. They just need to hear about the boogeymen whether they are immigrants, trannys, students, antifa, maybe even elites, or whatever the target of the outrage du jour is. There are self-professed liberals/progressives here who favor expanding roles for government, but I've noted others who are closer to former "conservatives", libertarians, and Reagan or Goldwater Republicans who don't favor government expansion as a general principle. They, like me, push back on what the right wing especially Trumpism has foisted onto the body politic. That's not being a liberal or a progressive. That's avoiding idiocy. I still have a hard time thinking this great nation even considers that unintelligent, emotionally stunted, narcissist as viable for anything other than prison or reality tv.
