Re: Smart gun laws

Abolish free public education? That would be the single worst thing our county had ever done. It would tank the economy, increase crime and violence, and eventually drop us down to a 2nd-world nation. Because you have data to back that up? Go check the data on individuals, even very poor ones, who ...

Re: Utahns, how excited are you about Mitt Romney

So my ten year old daughter really likes ranked lists and often asks me to rank the last ten or twenty presidents. Tonight she asked me to rank the last five and I was very surprised that in pretty much every category Trump ranked number one. Crazy I know but think about it. I guess he still has tim...

Re: Smart gun laws

I'd be in favor of implementing a law that makes law enforcement liable for not protecting the public. If they have reasonable suspicion to believe that someone is a danger to themselves or others and they do not respond, they should be liable. The FBI would no longer be ignoring calls like the one...

Re: Smart gun laws

We get it. You're the guy whose favorite word is "no". Given the current state of affairs, what practical solution do you propose? Abolish schools to end school shootings. Sorry if you interpret that as another no. You don't hear about this sort of thing at private schools and there's a reason for ...

Re: Smart gun laws

Perhaps the reason the involuntary servitude and slavery you argue for in the form of compulsory military service isn't an option is because enforcement of such a tyrannical idea wouldn't go over well with a public that is armed well enough to stop that. FWIW -- I was the one that brought up a one-...

The other big rumor floating is that Trump is trying to get Jon Huntsman to make a run for it. That would be a fun battle, but just as mushy a choice as Romney.
That's almost as bad as a choice between Trump and Clinton.

Re: Utahns, how excited are you about Mitt Romney

I don't like carpet baggers anywhere. It will be a shame if Romney wins. This makes him no better than Hillary Clinton running to New York to win an easy election. Do you guys still caucus for your primaries. That's how Mike Lee beat the other RINO, right? Is there a chance someone who actually beli...

Re: Smart gun laws

I have no problem with banning all Auto and semiauto weapons, because there seems to be no legitimate public need for them. This is pretty ludicrous. Are we going to throw out even the possibility that individual gun ownership deters our own government, let alone foreign governments, from taking mo...

seems like a very smart and articulate young man with a good head on his shoulders and a high football IQ. I'm definitely excited to have him join the team.
Is this a troll? If so well done.

Re: UCF as National Champs

I'd be happy with letting the top non P5 team playing the top P5 team not playing in a CCG during the week of conf championships. That way Alabama and ohio can't get into the playoffs while sitting on their butts for a week. If UCF beat Alabama that week instead of Memphis they wouldn't have been le...
