Sags measured in at 6'7.5" with shoes at the NBA draft combine. 6'6.5" without shoes. I doubt that helps his draft prospects

Republicans investigating other Republicans using even more Republicans as sources/witnesses. Liberals have nothing to do with it other than trying to keep even more Republicans from interfering.

Interesting article on Trump associate Elliot Broidy
https://theintercept.com/2018/04/20/el ... ons-lifted-for-26-million

If Broidy's name sounds familiar its that he was the third "client" of Trump/Hannity fixer Michael Cohen. Broidy used Cohen to pay over a million dollars in hush money to a Playboy model to cover up an extramarital affair. Anyway, the article is about Broidy brokering a deal to end sanctions on Russian gas company. Broidy has ties to people popping up in the Mueller investigation.

Speaking of Mueller, if you haven't researched this guy, he's led a pretty remarkable life. Despite being a lifelong Republican he's known as someone with impeccable integrity. He left a cushy job as a defense attorney with a prominent DC law firm because he couldn't bear the thought of defending people that might be guilty. He was born into a wealthy family and attended a prestigious boarding school. After graduating college he enlisted in the Marine Corps and served in Vietnam. His Marine Corp career alone is worth the read

Ebanks definitely had some production as a backup. The Lakers liked him and I remember Kobe himself giving Ebanks mad props for the role he played on the team.


Kobe actually praised Ebanks for his improvement in the preseason. When it came to regular season production, Ebanks wasn't very good. He played 16 mpg 24 games in his second season and only 10 mpg in 19 games in his 3rd. I remember seeing Kobe's comments and thinking Ebanks was going to make a big leap, but it never happened. If you look at his stats, it's pretty obvious that he never learned how to shoot and wasn't good enough in other aspects of his game to warrant a roster spot.

It looks like they might have found something to achieve that goal. However the mainstream media has claimed victory over every “revelation” since the inauguration. I’m just going to wait and see what happens at this point. Meanwhile Trump’s base has taken a bigger hit over what has happened in Syria. There are people who are feeling that Trump is going back on a big promise over this. Kinda ironic that the people who want to make a sporting rifle illegal could seem to care less about dropping bombs on another country, and bailing out ISIS who were all but defeated in the conflict.
Yeah, I saw Alex Jones had a meltdown about the Syria bombings. You must be going through quite the existential crisis right now

Lol. Sean Hannity was also revealed to be a client of Michael Cohen. Cohen has three "clients." We know two of these clients were usung him as the go between to pay hush money to women. I wonder what Hannity was using him for?

I grew up in Cancer Valley where the DuPont plant in Washington, WV tried to poison everyone within a 25 mile radius with something called C8. Fluoride in the water was the least of our concern. My parents still live in the area and received notice last week that the company that took over the DuPont plant is putting a chemical called GenX into the water supply.

Mueller did not execute the raids on Cohen, Geoffrey Berman did.

Berman worked on the Trump campaign, donated $5400 to Trumps campaign, and was appointed by Trump.

The raids on Cohen have nothing to do with Meuller's Russia investigation

"Cohen has said he used a home-equity line of credit to finance the payment to Daniels and said that neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign reimbursed him for the payment.

Banks don’t usually require much explanation from customers about how they use such credit lines. However, Cohen may have been asked to provide explanation for the large-dollar transfers he made when he moved the money to a shell company and then to a lawyer for Daniels."

If he lied to the banks about the nature of the loan or the transfer of funds, he committed fraud and is in big trouble. He probably didn't tell them he was paying off a porn star to keep quiet

Teams are afforded a certain number of practices in the spring that culminate in the Spring Game. If you reschedule the game, it's not like you've got a week's worth of practices leading up to it. You'd be asking to get guys hurt and it would be a sloppy mess anyway. Better to cancel the game and run a regular practice in the indoor facility

We had to read your constant bitching posts and comments for over a year about Russia.


Rex Tillerson condemns Russia for poisoning a British spy, is fired less than a week later. The person that is third in the line of Presidential succession is fired after saying Russia is an "irresponsible force of instability." There's probably nothing to it

Routt is a walk-on who was given a scholarship because we had one available. Doubt he'll get it next year.

If your 4 are McCabe, Doomes, Gordon and Culver, I haven't read that McCabe is signed yet and Culver may or may not ever arrive.

If all 4 show up, even if Routt goes back to walk-on status, we still have an extra player.

If I had to guess, I'd say that Hunter is currently the last man off the bench, but who knows?


Routt played his rear end off last night and has given this team exponentially more than Bender in much fewer minutes. From my perspective he's earned that scholarship and the clock has ran out on Bender. I would expect Huggins to politely show Bender the door after the season if he needs a scholarship

There’s nothing to get over. What makes Alex Jones an entertainer? Just because you say so. Now that’s pretty childish isn’t it.

It’s so amusing watching the white knuckled liberals hanging onto their dwindling hopes of changing reality. Face it you were following criminals, that actions are now coming into full view. You’ve been the willing dupes of those who have been working behind the scenes to undermine the fabric of our country.

One of the last acts of a President you hold in high esteem was try to force the public to allow men dressed as women to use the same bathrooms as little girls.

Sorry if I don’t change my mind and get in line with a group of sycophants.


Jones' own lawyers argued he was a performance artist during his child custody hearing, one in which he lost. If he's not an entertainer, he's a cult leader. Despite all of his posturing, he quickly backed down when threatened with a lawsuit by Chobani and the owner of the DC pizza chain he accused of being part of a pedophile ring. Any other time he's been exposed, he claims his work was that of satire.
I was embarrassed that people still followed this guy until I read this: "Social psychology professor Viren Swami of Anglia Ruskin University told NPR's Michel Martin that it's hard to change someone's belief once that person accepts a conspiracy theory. "We look for evidence that fits what we already know or what we already believe, and we try to avoid information or evidence that we either disagree with or that we know doesn't fit with our perspective," he said. "And if someone comes along and says, here's the evidence, your natural tendency's actually to rehearse arguments against that evidence."
Now I just feel sorry for those that desperately want to believe this garbage.

Just because someone identifies as transgender does not make them a pedophile. Pedophilia is something completely different. The transgender people I know just want to be accepted and treated with respect. I had the good fortune of working with a transgender woman just two weeks ago at one of our nations great automotive plants. She was hard working, pleasant, and was greeted everywhere in the plant by her co-workers. Not a single person cared about what bathroom she used. On the flipside, I had the misfortune of working with a person that was recently convicted of possessing child pornography. He was a married father of two and was a successful sales rep. He no longer works for us.

JFK's Lasting Economic Legacy: Lower Tax Rates
https://www.npr.org/2013/11/12/2447725 ... ic-legacy-lower-tax-rates


Great article. Thanks for sharing. Let's highlight some takeaways

"That boom came after Kennedy got Congress to try to stimulate the economy by passing a "liberal" agenda that included:

Increasing the minimum wage.
Expanding unemployment benefits.
Boosting Social Security benefits to encourage workers to retire earlier.
Spending more for highway construction."

and

"...conditions were so different in the early 1960s, when the top marginal tax rate was 91 percent. The Kennedy-backed tax cuts took down that rate to 70 percent. Today, the highest rate is 39.6 percent. Cutting the top tax bracket now would not have the same impact because it already has been lowered several times, the argument goes."

and

" Kennedy's biggest tax cuts were aimed at average wage earners in hopes they would spend more. Boosting the demand side of the economy "gave us the widest prosperity and longest unbroken run of growth in history" up to then."

The rebound in the stock market was not from Obama regulation. It was from the golden parachutes and devaluation of our dollar that took place under Bush then Obama. The de-nutting of the Glass-Steagall legislation under Clinton helped pave the way to the eventual economic collapse. I'm not quite sure how you can blame trickle down economics for that.






I did not equate trickle down economics with the economic collapse but rather the drop in consumer confidence. The rebound in consumer confidence and the stock market started with financial regulations on the banking and financial regulatory systems (Dodd Frank). For all intents and purposes the financial bailouts worked. Generally, people like being able to keep their jobs. Also contributing to confidence levels were the continued tax cuts for people making less than $250k per year (American Taxpayer Relief Act). We can argue about the effectiveness of the Obama policies but if we're strictly looking at consumer confidence and stock market value, it's really hard to argue with the charts.

Deregulation led to the financial crisis at the tail end of the Bush administration. The Obama regulations and economic policies led to the rebound in consumer confidence and the stock market. Look at the Dow Jones chart. The stock market tripled under Obama. I don't think the stock market is the best indicator of how the economy is working but if that's what you want to shine a spotlight on then so be it.

Rasmussen and Drudge both have, at the end of their first years, as 46% approval, and 53% disapproval. Then take into the fact that you couldn't criticize Obama without being labeled as a racist, how Obama for the first 3 months did nothing but go on talk shows and be viewed as the greatest man alive, winning a Nobel peace prize for simply being half black and elected president, and how the entire media hates Trump every day for literally nothing and all of this fake Russia garbage FOR OVER A YEAR. For example running BREAKING NEWS headlines about Trump eating KFC with silverware, and eating 2 SCOOPS of ice cream while everybody else had one, or how much diet soda he drinks. And add in the fact that all of these polls are sampled heavily by dems (look at the election). For Trump to have the same approval rating as Obama is astonishing.

Talking about optimistic, consumer confidence is at its highest it's ever been thanks to Trump, which is why the economy is booming after a decade of stagnation, and the stock markets are closing in at record high after record high, simply because Trump has gotten rid of so many Obama era administration policies. Thanks for putting America first, President Trump.


The Rasmussen poll is actually slanted towards the Republican side. Rasmussen himself worked for the George W Bush administration. Almost every other poll shows Trumps approval hovering around 37%.

Since you brought up consumer confidence you should look at the following link that tracks that statistic:

https://data.oecd.org/leadind/consumer-confidence-index-cci.htm

Consumer confidence was at an all-time high at the tail end of the Clinton era. Then fell off a cliff under the GW Bush administration with his trickle down economics. Confidence grew consistently under Obama back to the Clinton Era levels. If consumer confidence is the metric you want to use, Obama's administration was a huge success. The same could be said about the stock market.
