    Obamagate will be declassified!

    Good point. But my assumption is that most of these originate from a small # of sources whether it be fake news type actors, legitimately kooky extremists, or wealthy string-pullers with something to gain from said theories. So yeah.......maybe not the exact same Twitter handle, but likely...

    Obamagate will be declassified!

    Don't get me wrong. I 100% believe that crazy stuff happens all the time in government/military. But I've also seen how inept these same people are, and know that there's no way most of these intricate theories could be executed given the # of people involved - many of whom are not...

    Obamagate will be declassified!

    So we can go ahead and call anyone that claimed this would happen a liar, and anyone who believed it a sheep?

    Obamagate will be declassified!

    So when is this happening? We need specifics.

    I don't think people even care if things are fair anymore. Nor do they want "freedom" or "equality". The extreme tribalism has made people expedient. So they only want whatever it is that they want, and they want it today. If they don't get it, they'll freak out and maybe destroy something...

    I didn't mean to imply that you were a liberal/leftist, etc... Mainly that it's hard to dissect exactly who is what anymore, and how to discuss complex topics in the midst of so much cognitive dissonance. It's made so much worse by the pervasiveness of media and social media that profits from...

    And using the "trying to distract from the severity of an incident" is often the defensive position of a person or group that doesn't want to confront their own hypocrisy. From what I can tell, hypocrisy is so rampant right now in politics and social media, that people don't even try to avoid...

    How is the quote from Rubio above in any way condoning the capital riot/insurrection? Seems like he's calling it bad, and also saying the BLM riots were bad while calling out people for their double standards. Pretty simple stuff. Riots = bad. Double standards = bad. Super easy to...

    Gun/ammunition sales

    For sure. I'm just amazed at the appetite for it nationwide. You would expect it to eventually hit a saturation point...right? Are there really THAT many people stockpiling ammo right now, and where are they keeping it all?

    Tribalism. It's going to kill our country.

    Dunn is in over his head

    Gundy has straight-up stated that he doesn't even try to bring in top talent to OSU. So.....if our coach limits our recruiting ceiling by design/effort, that means in your football worldview, our ceiling is also limited to 3* levels of performance. And you're cool with that? So......if I...

    Dunn is in over his head

    I was at the Independence Bowl when we beat them pre-Saban. They looked lost and not good. Reminded me of an inept Texas team. Maybe had some good players by default of being a big school, but they were poorly coached and not motivated. Saban comes in, and the rest is history. I've noticed...

    Dunn is in over his head

    Yep. Dudes like playing for a coach with cajones. Gundy could teach him how to bring in those top-40 classes so he can soar to Cheez-It Bowls heights!

    Part of me is thinking, "Twitter is a private company, and should literally be able to do whatever they want." The other part is thinking, "These platforms are government-level huge, and their decisions are government-level influential. Silencing people on their platform would appear legal, but...

    Dunn is in over his head

    Exactly. Saban is clueless. His game management is why they couldn't get to the Cheez-It Bowl and finish ranked 20th. Dude needs to spend some time studying #gundyball if he really wants to succeed. Throwing seam routes to non-WRs? Who would even attempt something that risky?
