Re: “Oh, please, let it be so. A GOP gubernatorial primary over who's the gun nuttiest

Why is it that super tough redneck conservative types always need this much protection from anonymous future criminals, some economic collapse when the welfare junkies come knocking to steal their hoards of tomato soup and water, a zombie apocalypse, or an even less likely scenario, Armageddon of the supernatural variety, but liberals are given the blanket term "snowflakes" for not being tolerant of hate speech in public places or "safe spaces"?

That's a rhetorical question. I get it. They're dumb racist hypocrites.

Re: “Bumbling Bielema

Coaches are out there to snag up at the end of the season, the kind of coaches that resemble Petrino on the field. Lane Kiffin, Rhett Lashlee, Chip Kelly, Les Miles (not so much like Petrino but can recruit and available nonetheless), a coach that will take the job for that astronomical amount of money they make to win or lose. We need a coach like Nutt that can inspire and recruit. Hogs fans won't like anything though. It'll probably be another dark horse like Bielema no one anticipated.

No program except Alabama can run a pure power pro-style offense because of the sheer talent of the line, receivers, and backs. Very few programs can make a defense capable of putting up stop after stop, much like Alabama. Ergo, no team, in the SEC or any other conference for that matter, plays like Alabama on both sides of the ball. The reason why teams beat Alabama, when it happens every other year, is either a) luck (created by good players) or b) a scheme that can beat them. A weaker pro-style team cannot beat a stronger pro-style team. And a slow pro-style team cannot beat a no-huddle spread team that runs the defense into the ground with quick drive after quick drive.

Arkansas needs a coach to put together a team that can play with the likes of teams that can beat an Alabama based on the criteria above, not necessarily win the SEC. Playing with bad players in a scheme that mirrors the best team is not a way to win. The reason I say Alabama is they set the bar. We can't beat Mizzou or Toledo with this sloth-like style of play and a wide-open secondary that lets speedy players gut the middle of the field. If there are athletes on that team who can play a no-huddle style offense, that's how Arkansas, with its inability to recruit against the big dogs, is going to win. And that comes down to coaching.

Re: “Corporate welfare is a failure. So why does it keep increasing?

It's weird that corporate welfare is such a topic of consternation. Private sector gets taxed, government gives back. People get taxed on everything, get little back. Oh, except roads and parks. Corporate welfare produces some jobs, at least for a little while. Stuffs the pockets of the upper echelon, for sure, some gets to the middle class for their time and energy before the company heads for some better international trade deal. We could just give the money to the Secret Service since Trump's large adult sons are spreading them so thin.

I once heard a conservative complain about corporate welfare going to the WRONG industry. It was an odd complaint, from someone I know who voted for Trump, to complain that spending was good in an indirect but completely selfish way. But then I thought, "Well, he did vote for Trump."

Re: “The post-Charlottesville open line

There were those of us who knew that there was an insidious undercurrent of racism and hatred in Trump's campaign. They were barely trying to hide it. It was a holdover from Palin's rhetoric during 2008 and Michelle Bachmann and Rick Perry in 2012. The Tea Party, for all of its attempts to depict itself as the uprising of true conservative principles of fiscal conservatism and Christian morality, was just a guise for the actual principles of the far-right: racism, anti-intellectualism, and war. Trump was the perfect candidate for the extremists that had been given relevancy thanks to Palin in 2008 and the cadre of idiots that opposed Romney for the 2012 Republican nomination. It was only a matter of time before the irrational fears that exist in the small minds of suburban white people that never venture out of their McMansion pseudo-utopias except for trips to Target and football games to come to fruition.

Jobs, guns, god, and now the rebirth of pure 1950's racial hatred are what they have in their political arsenal. Outing these fucks for every inappropriate remark against transgender people, African-Americans, Mexicans, and any other group they disparage will be the only way to stop them. Save and share the posts and comments. Make them go viral. Post them to public groups. Tag their family members. Cause them to lose their jobs. Cause them to lose their homes. Default on their Range Rover loans. Whatever shame they may have left, use it against them. Humiliate them. Assassinate their characters. Ruin their lives.
