    Fantasy Football Rules and FAQ Thread

    General notice that tomorrow is going to be a pretty busy work day. Any responses will be slow and/or delayed until Tuesday. Which should not prevent any of you deadbeats who haven't ponied up from doing so.
  2. That IS one possible interpretation. What's an alternative interpretation of a voter in Wyoming having 70 times times the voting power for determining the U.S. Senate as one in California? I completely concede that the founders originally envisioned the Senate as a check against large states running roughshod over smaller ones. Where I raise my Vulcan eyebrow is on the idea that the founders intended small states being so heavy of an influence that they'd have 70X the power of the larger and more heavily populated states.
  3. I think you maybe might have missed what I was really saying. My post was saying that the founders didn't want tyranny of the majority. I was conceding that point. But if they didn't want tyranny of the majority, I think it is a good bet that they were not fans of tyranny of the minority either.

    Trump says the EU is a foe of the U. S.

    There is always Jill Stein or Gary Johnson? Do you honestly think that I agreed with Obama on everything? We both know better than that. Until we get ranked alternative/instant runoff voting (((((((OH HEY HEY! I TOTALLY GET ANOTHER EXCUSE TO PLUG THIS!))))) we choose the lesser of two evils. But until the ranked alternative vote happens, how we vote is who we are. A vote for Trump says a lot about who you are.

    You know, there might be someone who's a pretty close ideological equivalent. Not a perfect approximation....but, well, in all seriousness, which current party would Eisenhower likely be a part of?
  6. This post is almost certainly a giant waste of my time. The idea of the original compromise the founders made was to prevent a "tyranny of the majority". In other words, to protect minority rights. I highly doubt they intended a tyranny by MINORITY. I don't think they envisioned a situation where a party that constantly lost the popular vote would have unchecked power.

    Is BYU ok with the status quo?

    God I love your contributions. Y'know, as an impartial, outside observer who admires good performance art.

    As a random aside... This is actually the second or third time that someone has made a "Stitch" based argument as a deflection. I mean, damn, am I going to have to summon the ghost of Edmund Burke to get some worthwhile conservative arguments here?

    Truly a telling argument. I admit the shame of my avatar. At reasonable conservatives. @mugtang @thelawlorfaithful I'm convinced of the worthlessness of my arguments. How about you guys?

    Trump says the EU is a foe of the U. S.

    It's possible. If I did I'd like to think there'd be hot, big breasted ladies on my in foil hats so that those would also permeate my brain in a far more pleasant manner. But, well, one subject at a time please? I asked you to walk me through your reasoning here. I don't think I did that. I thought I suggested a few alternatives. Acknowledge the attack Demand the individuals responsible be extradited to stand trial Cancel the upcoming visit to send a message Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't know that any of those things rise to the level of nuclear brinkmanship? Maybe you can walk me through how those suggested diplomatic responses to an attack on our free and fair elections made you believe I wouldn't be satisfied with anything short of nuclear brinkmanship? Tell you what, you answer this and I'll answer your tinfoil hat question!

    I haven't read the article in question but I'm familiar with the theory. Cliff notes. Most U.S. banks stopped loaning money to Trump given his propensity to...well...not pay his debts. Over the years, Trump's become increasingly dependent on Russian money as a result. Most of the theories I have read do not assert that he's an ACTIVE RUSSIAN AGENT so much as that he's pretty actively dependent on Russian funding.

    What made you think that from my post?
