Re: “Boca, Bartow, and Backflips

The Grizzlies pay the Tigers to play at the FEF, a super sweet deal for the UofM. Dates are not a problem. They find plenty of dates to play some of these schools you've never heard of. As for Louisville, they won't play us here anymore. Tigers have tried. They did get a neutral site game vs Louisville next season. Look for coach Smith to make sure the out of conference home schedule is beefed up next season. He pretty much inherited this year's lame one.

Re: “Trader Joe's Project Back on Track

So, who's to blame for the delay? Trader Joe's, Germantown, or the developer?

Just based on parking lot activity, Kroger appears to be killing Whole Foods.

Re: “Boca, Bartow, and Backflips

I agree. Tigers should play Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Louisville for sure in home and home series. But that agreement with the Grizzlies hinder them because they need enough home games to get the money.

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

@Bric

I was not fighting, I was just asking you to develop your idea that the Electoral College and the 3/5 provision played a part in the Civil War. Since I have never heard that proposed, it is an interesting thought to someone like me who has studied that conflict for many years.

I regret you are unable to do so.

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

I recently saw a photo of a pair of bull moose locked in battle, dead, both of them, frozen in the ice.

I have seen this before.

I shall contemplate this photo.

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

Actually ApoP, you don't appear as if you could understand what I assert even if I did write a detailed explanation much less a few salient points, so don't you worry about it any longer. I'm sure you have better things to do.

Tell me, have you gotten your uniforms cleaned after the last re-enactment?

Re: “Encouraging Cycling, City Will Offer Free Event Bike Racks

@BC & others complaining they don't see condemnations of violence

Here's Al in Chicago condemning violence
http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/Rev-A…

Here's Al in Newark condemning violence
http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2011/01/r…

Here's Al in NYC condemning violence against police specifically
http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/…

Here's a whole story on the many condemnations missed by media
http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_pol…


The issue isn't people working to stop it, rather the right wing news not covering it and then blaming people for not working on it since they don't pay attention

If you or any other doesn't see these stories ever, time for you to get a new news source! ... or at least learn how to use Google

Re: “Rep. Ellison, Frontrunner in DNC Race, to be Honored Here

LoveBC,
Sorry, since the topic is Rep Ellison, I thought that was what you were talking about.

Re: “Rep. Ellison, Frontrunner in DNC Race, to be Honored Here

Nick R, I thought I made it clear, I was talking about Pelosi.

Pelosi used to the the majority leader. I cannot blame, or thank her, for the ker plunk of the democratic party, but as a leader, she must shoulder some of the blame for the dems losing the house, senate and presidency. I imagine she had a voice in the strategy meetings.

Nick R, the elites (super delegates) were so busy screwing Sanders and his minions that they lost sight of what they used to stand for, which was the plight of the working and middle classes.

Re: “Trader Joe's Project Back on Track

That's at least three stores competing for the same demographic all within walking distance. Let's see, Whole Foods, Kroger's and soon to be Trader Joe's.

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

@Bric

Well, you made the assertion, not me. It is up to you to support it.

I think I know about as much as anyone here as far as the Civil War goes and have never read any reputable historian that directly connects the Electoral College, or the 3/5 provision, to the Civil War one way or another.

The Electoral College is a result of Congressional distribution, not the source of it, and besides, Lincoln won the popular vote in 1860 as well as winning the Electoral College.

So I really don't see your point that somehow things would have played out differently had there been no Electoral College. Not to mention the implausibility of your statement that the US would still have slavery today.

Just outline a few salient points to support your position, no long dissertation is necessary for me to understand.

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

ApoP,

Really? You expect me to write a long explanation on how the events of the past 200+ years would play out differently if the USA didn't have the Electoral College?

I also said the Three Fifth's Compromise.

It would be much easier if you just think about it for a few minutes. You don't seem that lazy.

I'll give you a hint: Population enumeration and it's effects on the Congressional Delegations of the various states.

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

@Bric

OK, fair enough. I will rephrase my question.

How is it that the Civil War would not have happened without the Electoral College?
