  1. I’d take USC’s Olympic sports in the MW if given the chance.
  2. They left because of Texas. They’re not going back unless the Pac12 implodes.
  3. This is true for most Buff fans I know here in Colorado. I can see the Big12 reaching out to CU and CU using that as leverage if they need it for something but I doubt they leave the Pac12 unless it’s falling apart.
  4. Yeah but, does Baylor sell caffeinated beverages on campus? BYU does.
  5. I’m fine with the confederate statues. As a history buff, I see them as points of interest. Why can’t we also add other statues of “good” people that made a difference in the various communities? Harriet Tubman, the many slaves who outwitted there owners and were crucial spies for the Union, etc?
  6. I guess the Senate can’t say the House didn’t do anything which is exactly what they would say if they didn’t.
  7. No. We should enslave them all.
  8. This annoying “do not sell my data” thing shows up on the lower right. It only shows up on this site for me, but I’m afraid to click it...
  9. He’s also from Boulder which is the most liberal city in Colorado.
  10. Cory Gardner (R) is the incumbent from Colorado and he’d lose big if the election was today. He’s going against former 2 term governor John Hickenlooper (D) who is a moderate. I think Hickenlooper wins in November.
  11. I think the issue that will close the gap is the economy because most people believe Trump will do a better job bringing jobs back than Biden.
  12. It does? Sorry, but I don’t see anything in the OP that talks about traitors. It does mention something about an “awful time in America’s history” though which I equate to the BLM issues.
  13. The “turn over a new leaf” law in Colorado makes it easier and cheaper to have marijuana convictions expunged from records for non violent cases where less than an oz of marijuana was involved. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.9news.com/amp/article/news/local/you-can-apply-to-have-marijuana-convictions-expunged-under-new-denver-program/73-613378e0-0a68-4e64-a2a3-dda0bb04b297
  14. I wonder if Washington or Jefferson every whipped or watched one of their slaves get whipped?
  15. I’m not missing the point. I posted this in another response, but it fits here to: I’m just arguing to understand all points. I think it’s hypocritical to say that a Robert E Lee statue has to come down yet we are fine leaving Thomas Jefferson’s up. Robert E Lee left the Union because his home state seceded, not because he wanted to fight to protect the institution of slavery. Thomas Jefferson did the same basic thing. He was just on the winning side. The fact is that he still owned slaves.
  16. That was not me. I’m just arguing to understand all points. I think it’s hypocritical to say that a Robert E Lee statue has to come down yet we are fine leaving Thomas Jefferson’s up.

  17. The fact is that they still owned slaves which is a pretty barbaric thing. I wonder how many slaves of theirs were whipped?
  18. Kind of. They did fight against England where slavery was not legal. But thats beside the point. They either did or didn’t own slaves. I think the answer is pretty clear. Also, it’s not a stretch of the imagination to think that Thomas Jefferson’s sexual relationship with one of his slaves was consensual...
  19. They did against the country they were born into, the British Empire.
  20. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned slaves. Should we rename all schools, streets, and buildings named after them? Should we remove their faces from Mount Rushmore?
  21. What was the point of posting this video?
  22. Here’s a local paper’s article in the recruiting class so far. https://www.coloradoan.com/story/sports/csu/football/2020/06/09/kyjuan-phillips-evan-olaes-recruiting-commit-colorado-state-football/5327310002/
  23. Colin Powell agrees with and defends Gen. Mattis’ comments against Trump. Says he’s voting for Biden. https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/07/politics/colin-powell-donald-trump-protests-cnntv/index.html
