That is usually the case. It's far easier to call someone a facist/socilaist than to argue with them.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Mine as well.||
My house/roomates were two liberals, a moderate and a conservative. We had great arguments that often got heated, but we then went out for a beer and were still friends. I miss that. And on the negative side my conservative friend definitely was not encouraged in his views anywhere on campus, and in fact hid them from his professors, after a freshmen year where he got called out and ridiculed in two classes.

Hilarious. 1- I didn't mention insider trading. 2- saying people win every week and featuring them is not even remotely close to a lie--they did win, they showed the people who won, that is a fact. And as Brian pointed out this is what the lotteries do everywhere. "lying their asses off" lol. I said that people with functioning brain stems (that's everyone who comprehends advertising, even you) never once mistook those ads as some kind of invitation to get rich--everyone knows what gambling is. The fact is, all adults know that gambling is likely to cost you money. Saying that emphasizing the unlikely good of gambling is the same as lying is a little simple. People played, almost everyone lost--just like every gambling house everyhwhere on earth--and saying that's a con? Again, a little simple dude.
Lastly, never once said people deserve to lose their money. If distorting my words is what works, go ahead. I can see you're a person who stand up for the people against those awful corporations, so I can see why that's necessary
|2 days 3 hours ago||I just find it amusing||
when someone like you denigrates personally, for no reason whatsoever. I assume you are used to debating people online and perceived me as one of those from a certain viewpoint you have little respect for, that's cool. I however just think you have a different opinion from mine.
Blockquotes: they "relentlessly promoted their games as a means to get rich quick." Heavens, away to my fainting couch!
"They allowed employees to play other sites despite..." Um, ok sorry won't happen again, pay fine.
"They alowed big bankrolled players to dominate..." see fainting couch analogy above. Every single gambling business has smaller players "dominated" by larger players--that's why, along with the odds, hardly anyone wins in gambling--it's quite literally stacked against you--that's the business model!
|2 days 4 hours ago||Well, you can dismiss my post in terms||
that you choose, even though my tone was purely rational and non-emotive--that's your choice. But what "shit got pulled" exactly? Did they (Draftkings) cheat people? Is there some fact about it that I'm unaware of (sincere question)?
|2 days 5 hours ago||Not the execs fault in fantasy||
IMHO. It was the misguided rush to protect people from themselves by government regulators, combined with the competition that governments surely did not want for their lottery games. Fantasy WAS a way to get rich quick--the fact that it was a tiny portion who did so is meaningless. As long as one person per week won--good enough. No person with a functioning brainstem ever once thought to themselves that this was actually a way to get rich. And if you allowed no advertising at all the exact same people would still try to play, thinking they would be the one guy who won. Stop trying to cater to the lowest 1% of adults.

He already gave the "I'm not thinking about next year, my focus is on this year" answer to a question about leaving. which almost always means the dude is gone
|4 days 7 hours ago||I think your question was gold Jerry, gold.||
Questions going to the fundamental nature of ourselves and our souls are bound to be uncomfortable. I hadn't thought of this angle, but I am now seeing Craig in Brian, you've created a a personality brand.
|6 days 44 min ago||Yeah I guess that's good. But||
an American just won gold in the 1500 for the first time since 1908. Thats a slightly bigger story, even on a Michigan board.

on every helmet. It's just better, and one of the only great uniform trends in the last few years, IMO.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Will they make Harbaugh's underwear too?||
And speaking of that, what do we think Harbaugh wears? Boxers? Traditional, which he is. Briefs? Uncool, which he proudly doesn't care about. Boxer briefs? Commando?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.||
the matte helmet trend is the best (and arguably, the only) great uniform trend in the last 10 years
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I'd take the points actually.||
First time starting QB for us in game 1, I anticipate some growing pains, think the points are a good bet.

|4 weeks 2 days ago||You could not be more wrong||
in this opinion. Michigan is about far more than just potential future players. Everyone who ever went to Michigan is just as/more important an audience as high shcool recruits, And if you just want to go by dollars and cents instead of my point, potential buyers of gear are also far more important than recurits.
|5 weeks 2 hours ago||I think any group of students should group together||
however they like with no interference from anyone. I do get concerned about state sponsored or schcol sponsored intiatives that treat people as a group, rather than as individuals. But hey, you like that, more power to you. As for me, I think it's a matter of fact that our relationships on campus are worse now then they were 20 years ago. And that these intiatives are contributing to that. Because students as a whole are far more tolerant than anytime in our history. so why do you think relationships and understanding are worse now?
I love how certain POV's offered as legitimate argument in a non-cobative manner are immediately labelled bullshit. Have a good one
|5 weeks 6 hours ago||So it's a separate but equal student union?||
Irony. I find it interesting that the more we encourage group identitiy the less we all integrate, the less we all understand each other, the more divided we become.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Ahh, thanks. Night games really?||
That's a big deal? I guess I'm way outside the mainstream on this issue then. I have no strong feelings one way or another on them--if we have one, great, but if we never had another one, like ever, I couldn't care less. I wonder why so many do?
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Warde Manuel||
I would love for someone to eoxlain exactly what Manuel has done that anyone could have a big problem with? That letter is mystifying. And Brian's comment perfect--his job is to please Harbaugh while running the rest of the department well. By all accounts that is happening. Check.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||People don't seem to know the meaning of "journalist" or||
"impartial," especially as it relates to "blog." I see this same critique when I venture into the comments at a newspaper or site, when a columnist presnts an opinion someone doesn't like, you sometimes see them being nailed for not being "impartial." Huh? Blog is synonymous with opinion. Why is that hard?

are blinded by Lions hate from his terrible performance there. As an analyst, Millen is actually good. He is way better than some of the analysts currently working.
