  • Speed Kills Racial Profiling Study ... Ann Coulter

    09/09/2014 1:07:24 PM PDT · 29 of 29
    According2RecentPollsAirIsGood to Talisker

    Been out of town, so I’m a little late to this thread, but I think you’re exactly right that it’s foolish to discount every article she writes simply because in the past she’s taken positions at odds with many here, including myself at times. I took a break from reading anything political for a long time to try to keep my sanity, but when I finally started to dabble a little again, I started reading Ann’s columns again and listening to some talk radio again.

    I was immediately reminded that Ann is by far one of the best researchers we have on the conservative side. I always find out facts in her columns that I never would have expected, and I know do not appear anywhere else. She digs really deep and is an absolute goldmine of information for our side. This article here is a .50 caliber bullet to an argument that most people never even question.

    Reading her columns, it’s clear to me that her mode of thinking is that the clear and most dangerous enemy is the unabashed, unflinching Left. The counterargument might be that snakes in the grass on our side are potentially much more deadly, but Ann sees the nukes out in the open pointed straight at us by the other side and says, “that’s the imminent threat; we must destroy that now or be destroyed.” I think, politically, she’s open to compromise on certain people on our side if it will defeat the unquestionable threat on the other side. Her columns along these lines tend to rile up our side, but they are not just “vote Republican because they’re not a Democrat” simplicities. They seem more like war strategy to me, where sacrifice and best-case-scenario decisions have to made. I’m quite sure Ann understands that this is a war more than anyone.

    Even if some or even most of our side disagrees with her idea of political troop movements, it’s foolish to ignore her columns. They’re a fully-stocked armory of intellectual weapons to take on the Left.

  • AMERICA'S FAVORITE NATIONAL PASTIME: HATING SOCCER (ANN COULTER)

    06/26/2014 12:28:43 PM PDT · 147 of 160
    According2RecentPollsAirIsGood to fkabuckeyesrule

    I have only watched maybe half a dozen soccer games on TV all the way through. It’s probably not enough to start to understand the “finer points of the game,” although it doesn’t help that the announcers don’t make any effort to actually explain said finer points. This isn’t blistering-paced hockey; there is plenty of time to educate all those potential new soccer fans that might have happened across a match while channel surfing.

    I constantly see this argument that Americans don’t like soccer simply because it’s low scoring, and, in my experience, the people that say that usually are thinly implying (or often flat out saying) that those people are simply dumb for not appreciating a game without the potential for big scores. I have a different take on it. Low scoring games place a huge weight on each goal, which I think leads to some major problems.

    1) As seen in the Brazil-Croatia game, flopping/diving is insanely beneficial if you can get away with it. (How the world’s biggest event for a single sport can have clear camera footage of an obvious flop which gave the home team the winning goal and can do nothing about it is beyond me, but that’s another discussion.) Still, since a single goal is so incredibly valuable in soccer, it’s inevitable that players are going to seek that short circuit path to get a chance at scoring with a penalty kick that the keeper has almost no chance of defending if he doesn’t guess right. Flopping happens in basketball, too, of course, but the effect on the overall score is much smaller, so unless it’s done at the end of the game, there are opportunities to compensate for it.

    2) Low scores reward random events. I know there’s skill in getting to the opponent’s goal and defending your own, and I’ve actually seen a higher number of impressive assists and goals in these WC games than I’ve ever seen before. However, I’ve seen a ton of goals in soccer where the ball simply bounces in the right place for an attacker who is there in a lucky position to pop it in before the defense and keeper can react. I just watched the U.S. lose to Germany based on a great save by our keeper that just happened to bounce straight to one of the Germans hanging out around the net with no one in front of him. It was a good ricochet for Germany, and it decided the entire game. Now hockey has this same issue, but hockey also many more scoring opportunities for the offense to even it up, while maintaining a much smaller net, so a goalie actually has a chance in hell of fending off multiple attacks in a row. The goaltending in the Stanley Cup finals was breathtaking in this respect. And yet several of the winning goals for the Kings seemed to just come from bad ricochets that the goalie would have had otherwise. I also hate sudden death in sports for reasons like this. Randomness should be minimized as much as possible in sports, so that the athletes and coaches can truly show that their skills are the reasons for winning or losing.

    I think this is really the non-articulated core of the American dislike for soccer. It might be considered a matter of fairness in a way. The low scoring really allows for many unearned wins and upsets, and the size of the field and the pace of the game make it difficult to throw a lot of shots on goal to at least try to even things out, such as in hockey. The Big 3 American sports all have legitimate comeback potential at any time and the higher score potential mitigates the devastation of terrible officiating somewhat. I suspect that American fans who care even a little about the sport they’re watching don’t mind seeing a 0-0 pitcher’s duel or low-scoring basketball or football game if the reason for the low scoring is defensive excellence. (If it’s just utter incompetence by both teams, then it IS legitimately terrible.) The reason one can appreciate low scoring in those games is that we all know that it’s very possible to have medium-to-high scores in those games. Randomness and bad calls can only account for so many points/runs in football, basketball, and baseball; there’s always still that chance of overcoming even unfair obstacles through skill and determination. In soccer, one goal against you is basically a knife to your throat and two would probably be a flat out decapitation.

    So, my position is that the sport needs higher scoring potential not to make it more exciting, but to make it more fair and less random. If all that American sports fans cared about was the endorphin rush of seeing someone score as soccer evangelists often claim is the case, we wouldn’t give two craps about PEDs, steroids, or anything else along those lines. The real reason, I think, is that it just doesn’t seem truly competitive enough the way it’s currently played.

    Thank you for taking my post seriously. Thank you to everyone else who has, too.

    I would prefer she had not held anything back. At the same time, I might have come on too strong earlier, because I was getting nervous as the election got so near. I think she might have been expecting me to excoriate her or something. I have told her that this is all very important to me. It’s not to her. She says doesn’t want to feel like she has to agree with me on everything for us to work out and doesn’t think that thinking differently on some things won’t destroy us. I think I’m just going to back off for now. We still have plenty of other things to figure out in the meantime.

    I think really she doesn’t quite understand, as you say, that “individual political decisions are intricately entwined with one’s faith.” She seems to think politics is just Candidate A or Candidate B and that it’s about impersonal issues she’d rather not bother with. I’m the opposite which is why a simple vote gets me worked up. But I suppose I should realize that that took a while for me to understand (thanks almost fully to FR), and that it may take a while with her. I should probably approach any discussions from a conceptual, personal and faithful point of view.

    Remember though, you can’t control other people, you can’t change other people, only you.

    Good advice I've been told many times but still need to be reminded of. I already know that I can't go into something permanent with the idea that I'm just going to afterwards change specific ideas that are important to her. I find it insulting idea quite frankly. For example, she doesn't want kids, and that's something I had to accept even though people always say "oh well, she'll change her mind on that." Something like politics, though, if much more wide ranging and diffuse. I guess it just hasn't felt that way right now because it's all been condensed down to a single vote. I think with her general apathy, there's probably room to work there. It'd be different if she were some hardcore lib (which I have also regretfully dated in the past). I guess I should remember that to keep perspective.

    I’m ELCA but was schooled in Missouri Synod. My beliefs all pretty much line up with the latter except that I’m fine with female ministers and communion open to any baptized person. I know ELCA’s much more liberal, but my congregation, which I dearly love, is about as conservative as you could get.

    She is United Methodist. I’ve been to several services at her church and found the sermons to be fine and not objectionable, though I still prefer my Lutheran services. A cool thing thing, actually, is that she went to a Lutheran school, and as such is familiar with our services and beliefs. If she were to move down to be near me, I think she would fit in quite well at my church.

    As for UMC beliefs, I’m sure the national church is probably a lot more liberal than her congregation as well. How much of it she agrees with is just one of those things I’ll be working on. I’m having lunch with my pastor tomorrow, and we’ll probably cover this.

    Yeah, nmh, I may not know as much as I should about her. I need to give it more time. If it hadn’t been for an election year, it would have happened more naturally I suppose. I don’t expect I’m going to find any deal-killing bombshells, but it will at least give me perspective on how to approach things. My mom has also made your point that certain females just don’t care that much about politics; I’ll keep it in mind.

    I will pursue how Obama’s beliefs are compatible with Christianity with her....slowwwly. I’ve already explained how I find it disgusting how the left tells people they can’t make it on their own and thus need the government’s help to do anything, thus destroying their life’s potential and basically enslaving them. That’s a very moral issue to me.

    BTW, you should apologize to your girlfriend for hounding her about her vote. It makes you look like a bully.

    You're right. I asked and should not have pursued it when she didn't want to respond. Stupid rookie mistake. I just tend to not like too much uncertainty if I can help it, because I've gotten burned in relationships before where I thought I knew someone and I didn't. I'm probably overcompensating here.

    You're also right about making decisions you later regret. I've made and am sure to make plenty more of them. Acting like it doesn't happen to everyone is naive. I don't want to make a big one here, though, by getting myself worked up.

    I don’t really think she leans to the left. I think she doesn’t realize she has quite a few conservative beliefs. You may be right. It may be best to introduce her to things very slowly using her experiences. Her dad beat prostate cancer recently.

You can only remain undecided up until the point the barrel of the gun is shoved squarely in your face. At that point you’ve got to make your decision count.

  • Ridge: Steelers and McCain will win

    The way it supposedly goes is that if the Redskins win their last game before the presidential election, the incumbent party wins, and if the Redskins lose, the incumbent party loses the White House. This has been true ever since the Redskins’ founding so as far back as the 1936 election......until the 2004 election. The Skins lost to the Packers in 2004 by a score of 28-14, but the Republicans did manage to keep the White House. So that’s a record of 17/18 of predicting the election. Still, it didn’t work last time so maybe the streak is broken. Since the Steeler’s owner endorsed Obama this time around, the Redskins winning would seem to be a nice repudiation of The One and hopefully a good sign for us of based on historical coincidence.

  • Marine vet at Russell rally: Murtha a 'fat little bastard'

    Sgt Shawn Bryan, Joe the Plumber, Sarah Baracuda... It just gets better and better. With citizens like these, we can take on any white house.

    How awesome would it be to take all the Joe the ____'s and pissed-off soldiers and marines of this election, and that guy in the crowd that said "I'm really mad,"--all the normal but passionate and patriotic Americans who have inadvertantly found their way into the spotlight this season--and start a movement to elect these people to Congress and other offices? Let Sarah lead the way; it'd be a revolution of normal, hardworking real Americans. Joe the Plumber was the beginning of this, and he's said he's considering running for Congress now. Best thing that could happen for America IMO as opposed to just more and more lawyers continually going to Washington.
  • Who says Jews are Smart?

    As the article points out, it seems most American Jews don't care a lick about Israel and don't see what happens there ever happening over here to them. The "don't you care what's happening in Israel?" argument falls on deaf ears to them. It is an utterly naive way of thinking. It's time to quote the smartest man in America, Thomas Sowell:
    In a nuclear age, one country does not have to send troops to occupy another country in order to conquer it. A country is conquered if another country can dictate who rules it, as the Mongols once did with Russia, and as Osama bin Laden tried to do when he threatened retaliation against places in the United States that voted for George W. Bush. But he didn't have nuclear weapons to back up that threat— yet.

    America has never been a conquered country, so it may be very hard for most Americans even to conceive what that can mean. After France was conquered in 1940, it was reduced to turning over some of its own innocent citizens to the Nazis to kill, just because those citizens were Jewish.

    Do you think our leaders wouldn't do that? Not even if the alternative was to see New York and Los Angeles go up in mushroom clouds? If I were Jewish, I wouldn't bet my life on that.

    American Jews should be scared to death of an Obama presidency. The man doesn't have the moral compass to NOT do this if it came down to it. And there's no way in hell he'll prevent the possibility of such a situation.

    Speaking of sexy TV, I watched Mike Rowe inseminating a cow the other day on Dirty Jobs, and I must say that my desire to impregnate teenagers has never been lower. Problem solved.
