Re: Mater Dei Brings Thug Ball to Orange County

I'm sorry, Buck, but I have to be blunt. It wasn't that many years ago that one young football player was asked to leave a private O.C. high school for dealing drugs to his classmates, and he was quickly accepted and enrolled at another private O.C. high school. The comments on these forums largely ...

Thanks, Omar, I know. But if he had to run two collusion investigations at the same time, the end date might be similar to that of our bullet train.

Unfortunately, that's not true. It's at the discretion of the home team. For example, our game with JSerra this year will be played at their tiny home field.

Re: Supreme Court Sides With Colorado Baker Who Turned Away Gay Couple

To claim harassment by the commission, his lawyers would have to prove COLLUSION between it and the trans person. We could put Robert Mueller on it to determine collusion, and within five or ten years we'd get to the bottom of this. Seriously, it seems to me that forcing someone to bake you a cake ...

MD brings this onto themselves, what did they have in terms of 2017/18 transfer into their athletic programs ? I think it was 170 last year.

Re: Los Angeles Times TOP 25 Pre-Season 2018

Americanhero, wanting to play more games in a new stadium is irrelevant. A school can only play five home games out of ten and whether they have a new stadium or not has no bearing on that rule. The average power rating of preleague opponents might be worth a look: Mater Dei - 50.3 Orange Lutheran -...

People who pack their picnic lunches and cameras to go watch make-believe "Nazis" and "antifas" butt heads remind me of those poor souls who go to Rennaisance Faires in medieval attire to watch phony knights joust.

Re: One dead as car strikes crowds amid protests of white nationalist gathering

So the best thing to do is just sit quietly and wait? Not necessarily, but the best thing to do is also not to create false fears by repeatedly drawing comparisons to 1920's Germany. Trump proves every day he's much more of a Keystone Cop than an Adolf Hitler. And that also goes for the silly cospl...

...white nationalists have become more emboldened and vocal since Trump's election. And they will become less emboldened and vocal once he's gone. Trump is like a kidney stone. He will pass and things will return to normal. He is not the beginning of the Fourth Reich. There were Nazis (albeit not m...

The notion that no a-hole ever told another American to "go back to their own country" before January, 2017, is absolute bullcrap. It's been happening for two centuries.

I think it's interesting to compare Sondheimer's "passing league" rankings to Calpreps preseason rankings (in red below). Some of the discrepancies are huge, topped by Eric putting Arcadia at #30 and Calpreps having them at #150. 1. ST. JOHN BOSCO. It is size and strength up front that mak...

Re: One dead as car strikes crowds amid protests of white nationalist gathering

What? Given Trump's popularity with non-college educated white males, this is not close to reality. Sorry, but it is indeed reality. Hillary Clinton received 74% of the nonwhite vote, including 88% of all black votes. She also received 78% of all LGBT votes. In almost every election there are numer...

Re: One dead as car strikes crowds amid protests of white nationalist gathering

Racial identity politics is one of the biggest things driving the mid- to far right these days... While I agree that's true, I'd submit it's even more true of the mid- to far left. It's not uncommon for 70% to 80% of a liberal ethnic or racial group to vote for a single candidate, at least partiall...

As far as I know, this Space Force is solely out of Donald's head. Well, maybe not his head. Not much of substance comes out of that end. And JQP, as I've said once or twice before and will continue to say until I'm proven wrong, Trump thinks, writes, speaks and acts out like a child. Everything he...
