  1. Past hour
  2. I think you're right. One of two-things happened: (a) The Loveland Costco closed since I left for AK in 2004 (b) I'm confusing Sam's for Costco I'm putting my $$$ on (b). For those of you that find the battle between the two drastically different business models of Sam's Club & Costco: Jan 2018 Sam's Club closed all 3 of their AK locations (Anchorage, Fairbanks & Juneau). We now have 4-Costco's: Anchorage-2, Fairbanks-1 & Juneau-1. The Anchorage & Juneau location were around before Sam's bailed on the 48th State. The Fairbanks Costco opened up 10-months after Sam's Club left.
  3. "War sucks?. How does that avoid the actual topic of the thread? Those things you listed as crimes were the smallest part of the crimes committed in war. You have never ever considered the real war crimes this country has committed and the people who committed them. So sorry if I am not all excited about your one sided bullshit thread and bullshit partisan anger. I can't get all excited about prosecuting those poor missiberable souls forced to fight our wars because they get desensitized and lose emotional control. While those responsible for millions of dead and displaced people are judging. Just doesn't matter that much to me.
  4. Among the 276 D-I players who attempted at least 200 jump shots last year, David Jenkins ranked first in the nation by making 47.7 percent. He ranked third in efficiency, averaging 1.298 points per possession on those plays. He's got a strong case for best shooter in the country. From Mike Grimala Also it's one thing if most of these others don't pan out. Gonzaga, Oregon and others weren't recruiting Jonah Antonio, Moses Wood and Elijah whatever... They were recruiting Jenkins. Dude went from zero to baller at SDST. I'm not worried about him in MWC territory.
  5. I just read Amash’s wikipedia. I wish more politicians were like him. Willing to stick their neck out for what their independent thought tells them to do. I think we would see more compromise and bipartisanship. We will see where this goes. He seems popular in his district. My work takes me to non-democrat areas (and this MWC board). Even bluerulez doesn’t like POTUS as a person, and for some of his supporters I’ve met, they like that he has changed things up, done a lot, and like his position on a particular issue. For instance, for a Jew, the support of Jerusalem (contrary to two state solution espoused by decades of US foreign policy). Abortion, gun rights, protectionism. For some voters, they are willing to give POTUS a pass for their desired hot button item. I get that. That’s politics. A cunning politician (or businessman, leader) would use people’s passion, devotion to hide behind, to champion. That’s why veterans are used by countless politicians to further their agenda. Is it the party? The candidate? The caucus? The PAC? But you can’t give someone a pass and not be accountable for their actions. Not the POTUS, not ICE, not a Democrat or Republican. Our personal interests should include the upholding of the Constitution and our national duties. It has some vestiges of the free rider effect, and we’ve reached a tipping point in the form of constant Constitutional crises. Amash’s record and stance shows a lot of independent thought. At age 39, he might not support everything I support, but he seems to take his oath of upholding the Constitution seriously and protecting the separation of powers, and thinking objectively and analytically. Kudos brah
  6. Today
  7. Reno. Go there every year for the races. I really like the city. For a place I haven't been, Fort Collins.
  8. Color me shocked that the majority Y'all Qaeda would be against something with the word "Arab" in it. My overall take away is just that people are stupid though, especially when you see this little gem.
  9. That's because you are a +++++ing idiot though.
  10. ¿Did the Costco in Loveland close since I left in 2004, or am I mistaking Sam's Club for Costco?
  11. Just protecting Lt CaspAr Collins’ honor... If the map maker was wrong, does that make it right?
  12. Guess you’ve never been to Houston, or are your a fan of Refineries & Chemical Plants?
  13. It was on TV is must be true. :-) Go hang-out near the old Holiday Inn in Reno. That place is thick w/Cracked/Meth’d out hookers... I have recent ABQ bias. My Lyft Driver came back to my room the last time I was in New Méx for wrk...
  14. Matt Mooney, the best grad transfer in college basketball last year that led Texas Tech to the national championship game transferred from the summit league and had better numbers at Texas Tech than he did at South Dakota.
  15. I feel the same way about basketball, although I get that's a little different because there is money involved with corporate sponsors and all that. Plus the exposure of the tourney in Vegas.
  16. Hearing a lot of conflicting reports with him, may be reclassified to 2019, may be a 2020. But it looks like Derryck Thorton formerly of Duke and USC will be signing with us next week. Not a fan of his at all, can’t shoot and can’t drive to the rim to save his life; possibly the most overrated five-star high school player ever. Oh well.But the reason we soured on Jenkins is that we wanted him for 19 and it looks like it won’t be until 2020, at least with us it would not have been that would’ve blocked some very high profile recruits potentially coming in.
  17. Tampa, Orlando, Houston, Dallas, Philly, Hartford, Annapolis, Tulsa, Cincy, etc don't strike me as 'shit hole rat infested crime ridden dumps'
  18. Ya I was just being technical to stir people up. When did they put a costco in loveland? I always thought they only had a sams club.
  19. I picked Laramie because it's the only MWC town that I haven't spent at least a weekend in. In fact, I've never even been there. So if it is as good as some of you claim then it's worth checking out Actually I've never been to Logan either, but I've spent several weeks in Ogden (Weber State U) and I'm thinking Logan can't be as good as Ogden (which I like).
  20. Mike Bronson is thinking it is going to sour quickly when you have to deflate her every time your mom cleans your room.
  21. Mike Bronson always thought Warbow made good sense. Mahalo!
  22. Guess misread the tie breakers
  23. Warbow agreed with this.
  24. This weak shit isn't going to get you anywhere little man.
  25. https://www.wsj.com/articles/students-were-advised-to-claim-to-be-minorities-in-college-admissions-scandal-11558171800?mod=hp_lead_pos1 Colleges count on honesty, and it would be difficult to catch applicants who misrepresent their race, said Stefanie Niles, president of the National Association for College Admission Counseling. “You could have a student who looks white but who is multiracial,” she said. Ms. Niles added that it is unlikely applicants would check a box mistakenly. She said the Common Application prompts students who have selected a racial category to then check additional boxes confirming their selection. In looking to present a teen as a minority, Mr. Singer was tapping into a hot-button aspect of college admissions that has led to numerous lawsuits: decisions that take into account, or even give preference to, students of certain races or ethnicities. Schools that pursue race-conscious admissions policies say they do so to provide a richer learning environment for all students and are following Supreme Court precedent that allows such an approach. Harvard University faces a civil lawsuit accusing it of discrimination, with plaintiffs claiming the school holds Asian-American applicants to a higher standard than applicants of other races. Harvard denies the accusation, saying it uses a holistic approach and a complex set of factors to hand out acceptances.
