Re: 2020 Presidential Election

No you are right on. Pathetic state of affairs in politics nowadays. Republicans and Democrats as parties both are horrible in my opinion. They're both working for the corporate donors and that is all. I am in no way aligned with Bernie's politics at all but at least he is fighting for actual peopl...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Getting back to policy here, no matter who is president, the response of our country to these sorts of pandemics is likely to be sub-par because our healthcare system is not optimally equipped for this. As long as we have so many uninsured and underinsured, people who are sick or at risk will often ...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

100 percent agree that, as it stands, Trump will be tough to beat. Like Quann said, it's not necessarily about Trump, it's about his being an incumbent presiding over a "good economy" - historically, that's a difficult match, regardless of who the challenger is. Trump was much more beatable in 2016...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Look, I agree we could trim the fat on the military and maybe not keep sending money to other countries. But then you get called a nationalist. Special interests will try to label and smear anybody who threatens their interest. But if it's the right thing to do, it's the right thing to do. My point...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Also I don't get the whole "You lose your ability of choice" thing with the idea of single payer. You don't get a choice now (for the most part). If you have private insurance your "choice" is what your company tells you it is, and that restricts your choice of hospital and doctor based on who happ...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Insider, I'm not really sure what military budgets have to do with this discussion of healthcare costs, except that it probably does produce many more people with PTSD and other battlefield related ailments that drive up the financial expenditures, whatever the healthcare system is (that said, since...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

There will be bureaucracy with government of course, but take a look at our current system - it's exponentially worse compared to the single payer systems in other countries. That's because you have a complex system with many different insurance companies, each with their own bureaucracies and insur...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Bernie has absolutely no shot of winning the general election v Trump. None, Neither him nor Warren. Their messages may appeal to the enlightened, hipster, liberals who reside in Northampton, NYC, San Fran, etc but that message does not play well in places like Altoona PA, Racine WI, and Ashtabula ...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Sorry for what's to come below here. I pay way too much attention to this sort of thing and like providing details. OK, I'll bite. I'm thinking the Dems need a candidate who is not elderly, is an intelligent, camera friendly non socialist who is a mild liberal on domestic issues and somewhat of a h...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

^ I don't remember who those players were. But in my opinion, it's reasonable to think that having future NFL players (probably recruited when Brown was HC) suggests a decent level of talent that was underutilized. However, unless I'm mistaken, Molnar did not inherit any of those NFL players, so eve...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Who knows. Maybe they were more talented than their 5-6 record in FCS showed, but either way, I think we can probably both agree that, as of now, the talent Bell will have at his disposal should be significantly better for any kind of offense (spread or otherwise) than what Molnar had to start with.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Mediocre FCS team due to coaching not talent level. They were a year removed from almost beating Michigan at the big house. I think that's up for debate. The UMass team that challenged Michigan was Kevin Morris's second year, not his last year. His final year, UMass was a sub .500 FCS team. Whether...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Didn't Molnar run the no-huddle offense where UMASS never got a first down and the defense was on the field 45 minutes a game? Yes, but he inherited a mediocre FCS team (literally, based on the record in FCS) from the previous coach. I might be in the minority here, but I'm not convinced we had a l...
