  1. Past hour
  2. That’s the way It usually ends up, but not always. Rishard Matthews signed with Oregon, then went to Bakersfield, and transfered to Nevada as a WR, and he was a huge part of that 2010 team that finished ranked #11. He also went on to play in the NFL for 9 years as a starter for a lot of it.
  3. Yesterday
  4. I agree, there are questions. But Joe Biden should be held to the standard that Joe Biden set. Believe Women.
  5. I agree completely---i.e., that an political opinion can be rebutted with factual evidence. By other users, or media. I do not agree that the forum host (twitter) should play the role of "fact checker", or refuse to allow participants that they disagree with. I do not think they should "flag" a post or ban a user, because their "fact check" is that they disagree with the user's political opinion.
  6. What do you think of that song “The Fall”. That’s seems to be very NIN oriented.
  7. You mean like her claim that he did so? That holds little weight today: https://news.yahoo.com/biden-accusers-credentials-expert-testimony-230132449.html I don't think getting slightly wrong her dates of employment with Biden's office means much. However, claiming under oath to have a college degree when the school says she didn't is a pretty big deal. And claiming under oath to have appeared as an expert witness in about 20 prior cases and later backtracking to say it was probably about half that is another big deal. FYI, expert witnesses differ from "percipient" witnesses in that they are allowed to give their opinion on an issue at bar. They aren't allowed to do that unless first "qualified" by the relevant judge to serve as an expert. From what I understand, it isn't that difficult to get a judge to do so if the side against whom the expert will testify doesn't actively challenge their credibility. It's also quite rare for the alleged expert not to bring with them to court a CV which lists their qualifications, including citations to prior cases in which they have been qualified to serve as such. Therefore, I find it very odd that she could have backtracked on the number of times she has done so unless opposing counsel led her to think he might vet her claim to 20 times. Want to know why Reade's lawyer withdrew his representation? You can bet it's the stuff above and that he may also have uncovered other reasons to think that in a court of law her credibility would be in great doubt. But don't be surprised if she gets someone else to represent her. There are plenty of underemployed attorneys out there who would take her case just for the free publicity it would bring.

    Falcon Heights is a suburb of Minneapolis, so not the the same PD but it’s damn sure the same mentality.
  9. The way I see this is if an "opinion" can be definitively proven or debunked based on factual evidence then I see nothing wrong with "fact checking" the statement. Individuals still have free will to believe facts or not based on their own opinions of the source of the facts.
  10. Almost Biden’s EXACT words. 😂
  11. I can't wait for California to start demanding water from states like Idaho.
  12. Thank you for posting this. If we've discovered one thing today, there is abundant confusion on FACT vs OPINION statements. Some posters on here are learning for the fist time that not everything Trump states (or any Politician) is a factual statement.
  13. In December 2019 Jacksonville University, FCS Pioneer League, cut football. In November Valparsiso cut men's tennis and men's soccer. UMKC is dropping men's tennis and women's golf at the end of the school year.
  14. Here is an interesting article on Facts vs Opinions in the news and how American perceive them. Data was compiled by Pew Research. "A factual statement, regardless of whether it was accurate or inaccurate. In other words, they were to choose this classification if they thought that the statement could be proved or disproved based on objective evidence." "An opinion statement, regardless of whether they agreed with the statement or not. In other words, they were to choose this classification if they thought that it was based on the values and beliefs of the journalist or the source making the statement, and could not definitively be proved or disproved based on objective evidence." https://www.journalism.org/2018/06/18/distinguishing-between-factual-and-opinion-statements-in-the-news/ Here are the statements they presented to the polling group for them to determine what was factual and what was opinion. Factual statements Health care costs per person in the U.S. are the highest in the developed world President Barack Obama was born in the United States Immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally have some rights under the Constitution ISIS lost a significant portion of its territory in Iraq and Syria in 2017 Spending on Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid make up the largest portion of the U.S. federal budget Opinion statements Democracy is the greatest form of government Increasing the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour is essential for the health of the U.S. economy Abortion should be legal in most cases Immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally are a very big problem for the country today Government is almost always wasteful and inefficient Borderline statements Applying additional scrutiny to Muslim Americans would not reduce terrorism in the U.S. Voter fraud across the U.S. has undermined the results of our elections
  15. I feel it. I'm not to the point of let's argue about how the cesspool that is Twitter is trying to fix twitter, but I have watched a few innings of Korean baseball this week.
  16. How does all of this impact UNLV's chance to get into the PAC12? Discuss
  17. One of the most shallow conclusions I've read in a while. ^^^^ How did I defend Trump at all? (1) I discussed why I disliked Twitter's policy of censorship / "fact checking" (it was in the context of Trump's post, yes..but I dislike this for anyone.... I even posted an example of AOC). So I discussed an idea here. (2) I criticized Joe Biden's history of racism, rape, and lying None of the above is a defense of Trump. https://deadline.com/2020/05/facebook-ceo-mark-zuckerberg-avoid-harm-censorship-1202944403/ Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg Says Platform Policing Should Be Limited To Avoiding “Imminent Harm”
  18. Laid out in this article: https://www.abajournal.com/magazine/article/social-clashes-digital-free-speech It appears that Private Platform doesn't mean shit. Read the article.
  19. You spent all day defending Trump stunner. We get it, you can't both be your troll persona and who you actually are when you discuss politics. 2nd rater.
  20. What do you think censorship is? Also, what do you think a private platform is? You think when I type +++++ that said censorship is unacceptable?

  22. If it happens, it gives Rice something to do with more than 400 people in their lofty on campus stadium re football. BTW...I dunno why Rice doesn't market their stadium for outdoor concerts in middle Hou. Somebody will figure it out..great location mid town, very fine seating, decent tail gating parking lot...Rice needs to book outdoor concerts. Totally down for that mess when it occurs. Rice Stadium hosted the 1974 Super Bowl for its cred.
