  1. Good thing I haven't voted for a uni-party POTUS candidate in over 20 years. My conscience is clear.
  2. Morons paying for Trump's lawyers. And for what outcome? Looks for this case to go all the way to the SCOTUS. Trump and the MSM are getting what they want; more headlines.
  3. The less public money and more private funds are used to build a stadium, the better.
  4. I didn't know you were such a disbeliever in the Rule of Law. And this expected appeal probably won't be heard until after the November election. So again, will the GOP nominate a convicted felon to be their presidential candidate?
  5. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/10123073-caleb-williams-bears-to-be-featured-on-hbos-hard-knocks-ahead-of-2024-nfl-season No thanks. I dislike that show.
  6. More weakness from the NCAA: https://www.cnn.com/2024/05/30/sport/ncaa-drop-transfer-rule-division-i-athletes-justice-department/index.html So what exactly is the purpose of the NCAA anymore? Hosting a couple of annual basketball tournaments?
  7. Guilty on all counts, Donald Trump becomes first US president convicted of a crime https://www.reuters.com/legal/jurors-begin-second-day-deliberations-trump-hush-money-trial-2024-05-30/ I'm not surprised with this verdict. Now the fun begins. Will the GOP really nominate a convicted felon to be their presidential candidate?
  8. Elementary Schools Ban Tag, Football, and Fun During Recess https://reason.com/2024/05/29/elementary-schools-ban-tag-football-and-fun-during-recess/ Once they do swing or climb, they must use an "opposed thumb grip." (As opposed to their teeth?) The rules also instruct playground aides to "caution children if it appears that emotions and excitement are mounting to a point where incorrect actions may soon result." After the mom sent me the rules, I contacted the Montgomery County office in charge of recess safety. They did not respond. "It really feels as though maybe we've lost touch with what's developmentally appropriate," the mom told me. An administrator who met with the mom explained that the school's primary job is to keep children safe at all times. The mom disagrees; a school's primary job is to teach children and avoid interfering with their development. Boston College Psychology Professor Peter Gray feels similarly. "These rules demonstrate no trust at all of the children, nor even of the playground supervisors," says Gray, a co-founder of my non-profit, Let Grow. "When we treat people as irresponsible, they become irresponsible." The mom said she felt a bit sorry for the administrator, who had no say in these rules. (Just like the kids.) And she added that today's children really do seem a little rough when they play tag—probably because they've had so little practice at it. I have heard this from other people who work with children, especially occupational therapist Angela Hanscom, who notes that when kids don't move enough, they fail to develop proprioception, the ability to know where their body is in space and how much force it needs to do something physical. All the more reason to let kids start adjusting to each other in the easiest, most natural way possible: through play. In his new book, The Anxious Generation, Jonathan Haidt recommends bringing more play into kids' lives by keeping Friday afternoons free so kids can play in the neighborhood. He also recommends that schools stay open before or after school for mixed-age free play in a no-phone zone: what we call a "Let Grow Play Club." (Haidt is another co-founder of Let Grow. Our Play Club materials are here, for free.) Depriving kids of play in the name of safety is dangerous. Even more dangerous than two kids using the climbing rings at once. Dangerous indeed.
  9. https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/college/2024/05/30/indiana-state-baseball-midwest-power-ncaa-regionals-lexington-2024-luke-hayden-luis-hernandez/73862918007/ They seems like the best to me.
  10. I expect you have researched the history of government primary and secondary education in this country? It wasn't to turn out a populace of Rhodes scholars and Nobel laureates, but a willing, malleable workforce. Nothing has really changed, regardless of what side of the uni-party was running the Indiana department of education.
  11. The politicians. It is what you get in a government funded school system and a regulatory department of education.
  12. K-12 Schools Crippled by Covid Cash https://reason.com/2024/05/27/k-12-schools-crippled-by-covid-cash/ Any government school board who made spending decisions based on this federal money being around for the long haul should be drummed out of office.
  13. As I get older and have had to engage more with the medial profession, either for myself or other family members, my opinion is basically "meh". Government regulation and the lack of a true free market alternative regarding insurance has IMHO ruined medicine. And then you have all out dumbing down of entrance requirements for medical schools, all in the name of DEI.

    IU 2024

    3 years into NIL, IU among best in basketball resources, punches above weight in football https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/college/indiana/2024/05/28/iu-basketball-nil-money-among-best-in-country-football-competitive-indiana-hoosiers-scott-dolson/73773775007/ D1 athletics has always been about the Benjamins. Also has, always will be. All D1 College athletes nowadays:
  15. That depends on how much personally respect the medical profession, the legal profession, etc.
  16. https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/40229031/nba-champion-hall-famer-bill-walton-dies-71 Truly one of the NBA's greats.

  18. Sorry that you support governments suppressing their crimes.
  19. Yes, and a person that "earned their title" could be a big asshole. Why should I "honor" that person with an honorific?
  20. I prefer to judge people by the contents of their character, not some flowery word preceding their name. It is a good practice.
  21. 'A Failed Medical School': How Racial Preferences, Supposedly Outlawed in California, Have Persisted at UCLA: https://freebeacon.com/campus/a-failed-medical-school-how-racial-preferences-supposedly-outlawed-in-california-have-persisted-at-ucla/?utm_source=substack&utm_medium=email The dumbing down of the medical practice, all in the name of DEI.
  22. I don't subscribe to honorifics other that "Mr.", "Mrs." and "Ms.". Sorry.
