Re: “Sweat equity: UA spending includes an $8 million football coaching staff

As student advisor at a large, state university on the West Coast in the Eighties, I presented a plan to host the Grateful Dead at our 20.000 seat stadium, complete with total cost and projected profit (which was very, very high).
The group considering the proposal loved it -- professors and administrators went for it in a big way. The Kampus Kop did not -- he hated drugs and feared an influx of hippies. The profs all waved him off. Then Coach blustered something about his dead body and everyone looked at their feet. "Oh, well," and "Guess that's that" they murmured and talked about the weather.
I think coaches are the waste product of a great culture. But hey, that's just me.

Re: “Conner Eldridge and John Boozman spar over whether Senate should consider a nominee for Supreme Court vacancy

It's refreshing to see the naked racism on display all across the fruited plain. Used to be, we were ashamed of such a display, but those days have passed. Now, when we're done with vilifying our Black President, how about a couple of signs saying "Irish need not apply" and "Eyetalians are not White People."

Re: “Donald Trump backs out of pledge, open to third party run

Naah, Ron has come to the right place (no pun intended, but sorry nevertheless): He'll find them in Arkansas. Way to go, Ron! Split the friggin Republicans right down the middle, so the thinkers will finally win.

Re: “Jason Rapert endorses Ted Cruz

That´s as surprising as Santa endorsing Rudolph.

Re: “Jason Rapert vs. Wikipedia

"All of the outrageous material posted on this page referencing the Arkansas Times is not legitimate news - they are basically a political arm of the democrat party and have published material that would get them sued if I were not a public official. They are very good at pushing out ridiculous material that then gets picked up by other news sources and they attempt to gain legitimacy that way. -Sen. Jason Rapert.Sjrapert (talk) 00:53, 8 July 2015"

And this guy actually has voters in his district who feel he represents them?

Re: “Hot Springs superintendent appointed to federal board overseeing broadband subsidies

A good man to represent us. I think.

And of course, before being known as the Obamaphone, it was called the Reagan Phone. Saint Ron began the Lifeline program in 1984, Bad Bill included cell phones in '96, and under W, the Lifeline program was expanded, but the expansion was due to begin in fiscal 2009.

What did W. say? I screwed up, but they're blaming the Black guy?
