Re: The Economist: How to Stop the Drug Wars

I think legalizing marijuana makes the most sense. It would break the back of the Mexican drug cartel since it is by far their biggest market. I don't believe in legalizing the stronger drugs for...

Re: One & Only Illegal Immigration Thread: Part VII

The Democrats in the Senate voted down the extension of E-verify for another five years. All 50 votes against were from Democrats. Yes, the supposed party of the little guy sided with La Raza and the...

Re: One & Only Illegal Immigration Thread: Part VII

There are more than enough guest worker programs on the books already, and some of them, especially the ones used to recruit ag workers, aren't used to capacity. It's just easier and cheaper for...

pedagogue and General Zod, I was being SARCASTIC. Forgive me for not using a smiley face icon. I thought my statement was so over-the-top ridiculous that it couldn't possibly be seen for anything but...

Re: One & Only Illegal Immigration Thread: Part VII

The only fence that will be built to completion is a so-called high tech security fence that's designed to fail. It won't be an actual barrier, but just a series of detection devices used to alert...

Re: Sell, sell, sell -- it feels good [merged w/: Getting rid of your collection]

I would like to free up some space but I just can't seem to part with anything. The only ones I've gotten rid of are older editions of DVDs where I bought the newer version. I built some shelfs in...

Re: 2009 NFL Playoffs Thread-- Divisional Playoffs, Jan 10-11

Hmm. I don't suppose Tennesee's defense had anything to do with Big Ben's performance. Nah. They don't have media darlings like Ed Reed or Ray Lewis, so it couldn't be. :confused:

Re: 2009 NFL Playoffs Thread-- Divisional Playoffs, Jan 10-11

Which scenario is best for the Steelers? To face the Ravens, a team they've beaten twice, at home in Pittsburgh? Or have to travel to Nashville and face a Titans team who just beat them 31 -13 a...

Re: 2009 NFL Playoffs Thread-- Divisional Playoffs, Jan 10-11

The Titans are overrated? By who?? If anything, they're underrated since they have the best record in the league and nobody ever picks them to win. Just like most people on this forum the "experts"...

Re: One & Only Illegal Immigration Thread: Part VII

That's not necessarily always true. Plenty of pundits like Pat Buchanan and Lou Dobbs (and I can name many more lesser known "opinion makers") are both (so-called) protectionist regarding the auto...

What a weird situation. It seems like all four of the home teams might be considered underdogs.

I hope I'm wrong on all four, but I'm picking the road teams in every game.

Good luck. High tech workers are also going to compete with an endless stream of workers from India who will work for less.
