Re: Trumpcare Revealed

Not everyone pays the same premium for their homeowners insurance. If your home is bigger and more expensive, you pay more. If it's in a flood plain, you pay more, and if its various construction elements are more risky, you pay more. The same goes for auto insurance. If you car is more expensive, y...

Re: Giant California solar project cut back after environmentalists oppose it

Well, for 20 or 30 years, we've heard repeatedly that the world getting less green (e.g. burning and cutting down of rain forests) is a bad thing. It's a logical conclusion that more green = better.

I can eat right and exercise, and then some mope e at the mall sneezed a colony of viruses into the air that I walk through! You're right, a healthy lifestyle can't protect you against every possible health problem. On the other hand, that guy at the mall who sneezes on you won't give you lung canc...

Re: Who's doin the pool?

Will there be just one division, or will there be a senior competition for guys like Luca and MDDad? Pro golf had the wisdom to change the name of the Seniors Tour to the Champions Tour. I propose we should be just as wise. And if Luca and I will be the only two guys in it, you can give me the trop...

Re: Trumpcare Revealed

Maybe a better question for all of us is what % of our income should we be paying? That's the crux of the matter, isn't it? Depending on which reports you read, total personal income for all Americans in 2016 was between $16 and $18 trillion. The total amount Americans spent on health care in 2016 ...

Re: Rohrabacher Losing It?

Had it been Inhofe he would be declaring that only Jesus kept the meteor from hitting us. Jesus is probably as responsible for the trajectories of celestial objects as global warming is. There aren't many things more pathetic than air-head "news reporters" and other celebrities trying to ...

Re: "the inevitable disaster that will be the Trump Administration"

In my opinion, the person who wants to get the hell out of Dodge the most is Melania. She never looks like she's have a good time, and when she married the Donald's money, she never could have dreamed she signed up for this.

Re: SJB Transfers

OC27, unfortunately the CIF database is organized by who filed the transfer approval paperwork, which is almost always the destination school. So unless you have the name of a kid, or the name of his new school, it would be an impossible task to identify all the kids who may have transferred out of ...

Re: Gov Brown: failure of cap & trade "a threat to organized human existence."

So when American companies do something overseas, we are all suddenly responsible? Your game of semantics has gone flat, Ford. First of all, comparing the autonomy of Chinese companies to American companies is laughable. American companies have a great deal of freedom in where they invest and what ...

Re: Gov Brown: failure of cap & trade "a threat to organized human existence."

I haven't done the math, but I think every person in California would have to live in a cave, eat dirt, and fart oxygen to offset the effect of the 700 new coal plants China is planning to build.

Re: Gov Brown: failure of cap & trade "a threat to organized human existence."

What you're seeing is how a socialist world is engineered. Now CA is considering increasing subsidies for Teslas. This will work nicely with higher gas prices to get people to buy more Teslas. (isn't this sort of cronyism?) Great news. Never thought of it that way. Kramer, gas taxes would have to g...

BBW, "4 front 7 defensive players with offers before coming to MD" sounds ominous. Except that one of them will miss the entire 2017 season, and another one had zero offers.

That's a misleading list, because not all those kids came in this off-season. Here's the list of the total number of transfers each Trinity team had on their varsity rosters for the last three seasons, per the CIF website. My 2017 list will come out after the Week 0 games. 2014 Season St. John Bosco...
