Let's take a closer look. Here is a direct quote from the article:

The FBI’s involvement should signal that this is no longer a partisan issue, they would only be called in if federal crimes were committed.

This statement shows that the writer lacks even fundamental knowledge regarding the judicial system and the basis of federal investigations. The FBI is investigating (1) to determine whether there has been any security breach and to determine the fallout of such a breach, and (2) to determine if there is any criminal wrongdoing by anyone. The right-wing media is portraying it as an investigation of Clinton. While they might certainly uncover any wrongdoing by her during the investigation, the scope of the investigation is not limited to her.

If your thesis is that she will be convicted merely because the FBI is conducting an investigation, and the FBI is conducting the investigation for reasons other than they believe she engaged in criminal wrongdoing, then your thesis is fucked.


Well the Washington Post in this article calls it a criminal investigation of possible wrongdoing related to Clinton's private email server. Yes they are interviewing her staff, but if you think she isn't the target of the investigation, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you. It's her server, she had it set up, she deleted tens of thousands of emails. Maybe they won't find anything, or maybe someone will take the fall for her (it's happened before). Hillary (The Liar) Climton is under FBI investigation and has been for over a year. If nothing's there what's taking so long?


https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/n ... 6-e1902f6b6571_story.html


Fact: the article says exactly what I said about the criminal and other aspects of the investigation. Exactly.

Fact: your belief that she is "the target" of the investigation is based solely on conjecture.

There are no specific targets. It is an investigation to see if anyone broke the law. If she did, she should be punished, as should anyone else. But you, like the dimwitted author you praised, both convict her merely because an investigation into a situation has occurred. Step back into reality.

He was looking for the poon, man. The easiest place to find poon is at the end of a boner.


I would guess that the number of boners in the vicinity of poon ("bvp") is significantly less than the number of boners distant from poon ("bdp"). I would even bet that bvp<4bdp.

So are we changing it to "Once a Mountaineer, always a Mountaineer, unless you are a sex offender"?

I started to read it and saw it lacked much support for what he was saying. When you are short on facts, argue the law. When you are short on the law, argue the facts. He is short on both. If you read it critically rather than merely lapping it up because it fits your agenda, it isn't very compelling.

So, they use the word "boner" in that article about 4 times. Made me wonder...what were you googling when you landed on that?


Oh Man. Googling porn. Lame gay joke. unfamiliar with Deadspin. Let me guess, you're 65 years old.


Ageism and homophobia in a single post. Well played. Maybe stop taking yourself so seriously. It is just message board banter.

It is amazing how many people on this board beat up on Skyler Howard.

Fact... Howard is the starting QB for the Mountaineers.

Fact... None of the armchair experts on this board have ever been, nor ever will be the starting QB for the Mountaineers.


So youre only allowd to comment or have opinions about the QB position at WVU if you played QB for WVU? Got it. Guess that Gruden guy is full of ****, he never played QB in the NFL. What a dumb statement. Truthfully by your own logic you have no right to defend Hyler since you never played QB at WVU.


Thats Right! Only Trickett, Geno, Grier, Sills, Crest, Saunders can make comments on Howard. By the way, no one is allowed to make comments on Obama either, of course unless your a former or future president.


That isn't what Willy said at all. Yikes. What Willy said was that Howard is the starter and his critics aren't. He never said you cannot comment about it. I read it to mean that Howard has accomplished something the haters never have.

Careful now, anyone could take that info and do a 5 second google search. Then you'll have junior Sherlock Holmes up your ass.

This is why this site needs open enrollment, fresh meat like this is what makes hanging out around here fun. You know, in between of the stupid **** like WVU sports.


Maybe they could mirror the open enrollment periods from Obamacare.

My take on Stanley's budget meeting for WMITC Inc.: Spamware or weed? Spamware or weed? Weed!

Crest may be able to play cornerback but he doesn't belong in the same discussion with Porter - yet anyway.


Thanks for the info. I couldn't remember all the facts.


He threw a football 50 yards from his knees USING HIS WEAK ARM. Too bad that was before YouTube. I would like to see it.

How many sexual assault case does it take before Briles is held accountable?


I don't like Briles, but I don't see why he should be held accountable for something another adult did. Especially if he didn't know about it. This former player is an adult, he made his own decision to break the law and assault this girl at his own apartment. Why should an innocent person with no knowledge of the crime be held responsible for another persons actions?

Now, if he knew and did nothing about it, that is totally different.



Title IX is the reason administrators are responsible. There appears to be a culture on Baylor's football team and campus at large that relates to these sexual assaults. When schools educate and discipline students appropriately, sexual assaults decrease. When they don't, they create a culture that enables perpetrators to commit sexual assaults. The issue isn't whether they need to hand hold players on a date. The issue is whether they are helping create a culture where players believe this is acceptable.



I know that Title IX is the reason that administrators of a university are responsible when there is sexual assault or rape amongst students on campus. But again, this is an adult who is not a student at Baylor. He graduated in December 2015. The crime was committed 10 days ago. The crime he committed happened off campus at his apartment. So tell me why Art Briles should be held accountable for this guys actions? Tell me why Baylor should be held accountable for this guys actions? He isn't a student there, it didn't happen on campus. This is not a Title IX Baylor issue. This is a The State of Texas vs (insert name here) issue.


This didn't happen in a bubble. Baylor has had a string of sexual assaults in its football program recently. These assaults were actually reported. Even if they weren't, ...

[N]otice may be imputed onto the school if the pervasiveness of sexual violence is “widespread, openly practiced, or well-known among students.” The school is required to take prompt and effective corrective action in these instances.


Baylor should consider itself on notice at this point that there is a problem and they need to clean it up.

Even just looking at this one case in a bubble, which is not how it is analyzed, the alleged victim is a grad student at Baylor. The school can still be responsible under Title IX for events that happened off campus in a number of different situations. I don't know that there is a case on point ruling whether these facts show a Title IX violation by Baylor due to the individual case, but I would be happy to make the argument. Title IX is remedial legislation, and courts are instructed to interpret it broadly. It isn't as if he is a stranger to the school. But, when you add in the history, I think Baylor has a liability problem.

Well males at University of Toronto just got caught filming female students showeing in a gender-neutral/unisex dorm facility. Sure, lets allow guys to enter the womens locker rooms at a gym...what could possibly go wrong.

call me a bigot or whatever, I couldnt care less how pyschologists define it, if you are a man who thinks he is a female or vice versa, you have a mental disorder. Youre not gay, youre not straight, you have something seriously wrong with you. I have no issues with homosexuals and support their right to marry and have shared a locker room with gay guys, never once bothered me. This gender ID crap is where I draw the line.

Liberals always are citing science, evolution, biology, etc. If you are BIOLOGICALLY male you are male. Either the biology and nature is wrong or the people that think they are a different gender are wrong and have a mental disease. I am on the side of biology, natural selection, and nature


Simply ignoring studies and expert opinions that differ from your own, and show that you have a fundamental misunderstanding about the subject matter, is lazy and arrogant. Don't be afraid to question your beliefs and maybe learn something about people who are different from you.

Gender Dysphoria is Not A Mental Illness


Yes, it is. It is an anomoly, and clearly not genetic. Gender isnt like race. You cannot, by consciois decision or by lying to yourself, change from being white to asian. Children conceived by native Chinese parents canny be anything but Asian in their race. They may not be Chinese citizens or may well become American citizens, or even have surgery to make their appearance more caucasian, it does not change the fact that they are Asian by biology and genetics. This is like when the baby goat is raised by a dog with a litter of puppies. The goat will act just like a dog, but it is still a goat.

Hey to each their own. If you want to chop off your junk or get junk added, so be it, its a free country. I think when we boil it to our simplest knowledge of right vs wrong, or maybe a better way is natural vs unnatural, I firmly believe that behaviour and those actions are highly unnatural, no differant than a teenage body mutalator or somebody struggling with annorexia. What I know, beyond any reasonable doubt, is that allowing anyone to use any RR or locker room they want based on a feeling is asking for trouble. We want womens rights, ask the girls at University or Toronto who were sexually assaulted because of these ridiculous policies if their rights have been violated. I dont want that for my mother, sister, neice, or any woman or man.


If you read more about it, then you would know the difference between gender and sex. They are not the same thing. People are born a specific sex (unless they are a hermaphrodite or something similar). Gender is completely a construct of culture. Women were not born in a skirt wearing make up. Men were not born wearing pants. These are purely cultural phenomena. Look at the differences in gender among cultures today. The expectations by gender vary greatly from culture to culture.

And to say that the unisex bathroom caused the women to get sexually assaulted is ridiculous. There is no causal connection between the two. The only way that statement is true is if the men who filmed them had no control over their decision to film them. You are simply engaging in the outdated idea that "boys will be boys" when they engage in sexual assault, as you described it. That is perverted.
