Any of the. Who honor the flag and anthem may have a good outing. The others deserve itching powder in their shorts.

henry,

Its getting ridiculous and I thought they would have stopped all their whining by now. November 12th may not ending up being anti-climatic after all. It may spell the death by a thousand cuts for Goodell and the golden goose.

[Nov. 12th, day after Veteran's day is an organized pro-flag, pro-anthem protest by Veteran groups.]

Maybe that other Tennessee asshole will take notice and change his RINO ways.

Ain't it refreshing to have party discipline enforced in public?

Stopped their whining? These are the least accountable of the participation trophy generation. At what point in their lives have they been sent to the corner, let alone faced a rolled up newspaper? The reality sandwich coming for them will show no mercy at all.

Porch,hubby just talked to his sister,her daughter (our niece) lives in Austin. Our niece is at Austin City Limits and she told her mother that the security is everywhere,including snipers.

It is a shame that some NFL employees make the punishment rest on all NFL employees.

One of the comments in that story noted there was no record of such a prescription. If I remember correctly, they did find records of a valium prescription a few months ago.

It is very easy to buy drugs that are only available with a Dr's Prescription in this country, from simple over the counter sources in many other parts of the world. Since I read that Paddock had taken something like 20 cruises, some to Asia, and his girlfriend is Fillipino with family overseas, it would be no hard task to have picked up multiple drugs overseas so he wouldn't have needed a Drs Prescription. For a guy interested in staying off the Radar screen like Paddock I think that would fit his modus operandi. Hong Kong (where the girlfriend was) or India are simple locations for getting bulk drugs cheap, anonymously, and without any Dr's paperwork whatever.

Threadkiller

The undersheriff that Windansea quoted the other day ruled out anything suggesting motive was found in the maniac's "behavior" leading up to the massacre.

If it was prescription drugs or illegal drugs from the Orient, the undersheriff lied.

They searched the maniac's hotel room, his automobiles, and his residences. They reported what we assume to be an accurate gun and explosive count, but no mention of state-of-mind altering drugs.

Maybe when he snapped due to an undiagnosed mental disease, he had the foresight to dump all his pills in the toilet and melt all the bottles into a pile that he placed in an undisclosed random dumpster.

windansea

From the previous threads, I see some more world class spitballing going on.

The Police/FBI are playing 3D chess, and even though they have stated they have zilch on shooter's motive, this is just misinformation and they are putting up billboards asking for help this is a strategic ploy to flush out something or someone involved.

The Police/FBI are incompetent, in over their heads, and have no idea what they are doing.

The Police/FBI are part of a deep state/false flag media operation where "they" are manipulating the whole shebang in order to grab our guns.

The shooter acted alone, and even though friends have stated he was a staunch 2nd amendment defender and avid gun buyer, shot up 500 people to promote more gun control.

So far all I see is a sick alcoholic psychopath who decided to go out with a bang.

Here is a riddle.

The maniac tells people that he makes a living off of gambling. People repeat what the maniac claimed and are dismissed because it is obvious that the maniac is lying.

The maniac tells the Aussie that he is a 2nd Amendment freak, and it is gospel.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I have an open mind about Paddock.

We don't yet have all the information. Could have been anything from undiagnosed mental illness of a type I don't understand, to an elaborate plot by unknown agents, foreign or domestic.

windandsea,

You are free to believe he was simply crazy. Clarice agrees with you. We don't have that diagnosis yet and so I am waiting for some psychiatrists to weigh in on similar cases.

Those who are suspicious have a reason to be so, given the corruption we have seen in various branches of government, especially the FBI.

I think it is also important to remember that the casino has a vested interest in not being liable. Given Steven Wynn's comments about the security at his casino, which obviously isn't the protocol at the Mandalay Bay, I think there are lots of lawyers pulling strings in the background.

So, either this will disappear from the front pages or more information will break. I am in a wait and see attitude, although I reserve the right to bring up oddities about the information we have been given.

daddy

So how are your odds not 50/50 at that point?

Late to the Math problem but I'm with Porch. I know what we are told is the correct answer but I personally am not convinced of it since to me it seems illogical. I take great comfort in knowing from what I transcribed of the CalTech boys last night, that the Physicists had to ask the Mathematicians to come in and explain the Math of Einstein's General Relativity equations to make LIGO work:) Ha!

And as I recall from some long lost book, Einstein's last words were something to the effect of "If only I'd known more math," but now I see via Goolag search that that is apocryphal, and he mumbled something in German that his American Nurse couldn't understand.

--Also, something like "schizophrenia" can be used describe a wide variety of behaviors, especially over time, so it's difficult to compare studies. I do defer to you Ig here.--

Somewhat true though the head shrinkers seem to prefer "schizo-affective disorder" these days for the hard to classify cases. It's also not helped that layman seem to have no clue what it is, often confusing it with multiple personalities or disassociative disorder or whatever they call it now.
But classic schizophrenia is pretty basic with auditory hallucinations, some measure of paranoia, disorganized thinking and sometimes delusions.
Don't defer to me, anon. I only know what I know out of necessity. I wish there was a diet cure for it and cancer for that matter, but I just don't see the evidence. The evidence for diet largely causing and curing something like Kev's Type 2 diabetes seems overwhelming to me.
But that leaves an awful lot of diseases that existed long before Ray Kroc or the FDA food pyramid.
I have little doubt a high fat/low carb diet is healthier and that's how I eat naturally. I'm even willing to grant lectins are probably not beneficial but even those who eat that way for a lifetime are tinkering at the margins and show incrementally better outcomes overall not revolutionary ones. In fact you might say they show exactly the same outcome, just postponed a bit or made a bit more pleasant.

Screw football. Let’s talk hockey.

Any 2nd Ammendment statements within the 2 years?

Get a load of this:

Jonathan Pring, 36, who owns a coffee shop in downtown Phoenix with his wife, said he called the police to ask if an officer could come pick up his Walther PK380 and Ruger 10/22 tactical rifle.

Pring told the Republic that he was motivated by the mass shooting that killed 59 people and injured more than 500 on Sunday night.

http://www.daytondailynews.com/news/arizona-man-turns-guns-police-response-las-vegas-shootings/s6p5YPrdHwWrnV8rTyszcN/

Something made this law abiding citizen want to change his opinion on gun ownership. And when he did, he didn't do it quietly, he asked for media attention.

The maniac, IMO, started planning this in October of 2016. That is when his buying habits changed. The undersheriff that suggests nothing in his behavior is relevant. I disagree on this point. His recent gun purchases shows a behavioral change.

Maybe the post 2nd Ammendment maniac had a different plan to turn his guns in.

Kev, henry, buckeye--get this:

And the food pyramid is not to blame for obesity. The problem is with portions. And lack of exercise.

So, porch is saying you were lazy gluttons, and the weight that is dropping off of you is because you are now exercising and watching your portions.

Care to correct her misinformation?

She is right about it not "being the food pyramid"--it didn't come out til 1992. It was the decrease dietary fat, especially from dairy and meat/eat eight portions of grains each day that corrresponds with the spike. The food pyramid just illustrates that.


https://www.healthline.com/hlcmsresource/images/HL128143-graph-2.jpg

It does predate the food pyramid--it's when McGovern got them to recommend eight servings of grain a day and decrease dietary fat (meat and dairy) back in 1977. Food pyramid first appeared in 1992.

the front office idiots who wackec tito are to blame as well.

Refresh my memory; this was obviously a severe overreaction to some perceived mismanagement when it was probably the case of losing to a more talented team. Tito has produced the most relaxed yet focused team I've seen since Earl Weaver managed the Os. There's a certain intangible confidence in the dugout when you know your manager is tuned in to everybody on the roster and won't get smoked by the opponent. The Indians had no business competing against the vastly more talented Cubs last year and almost pulled it off

Senator Bob Corker "begged" me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said "NO" and he dropped out (said he could not win without...

..my endorsement). He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said "NO THANKS." He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!

.Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda. Didn't have the guts to run!

Maybe the post 2nd Ammendment maniac had a different plan to turn his guns in.

It's possible, but when has a mass shooting in the US resulted in lots more actual gun control? Usually, the more gun control is talked about, the more guns are sold. So if that was his plan, he basically shot 500 people and maybe bump stocks get outlawed.

Its not 50/50 after one of 3 doors have been opened. Its 66.7% probability. When all 3 doors were closed you had a 33.3% probability of picking the car on your first try. But now that one of 3 are open and shows a goat, your door of having the car continues to stay at 33.3% but the other closed door is now at 66.7%. I can do it a probability sequence calculation but it would probably bore everyone to death.

oh yeah. and most sox fans were happy for tito. even though henry and warner brought us a WS they are not liked much because they keep stepping on their johnsons with stuff like they did to tito. firing francona was not out of line given the collapse but they had to bury the guy as well. bleepholes.

Is statistics math?

Statistics is a mathematical body of science that pertains to the collection, analysis, interpretation or explanation, and presentation of data, or as a branch of mathematics. Some consider statistics to be a distinct mathematical science rather than a branch of mathematics.

So according to daddy,
Corker' negative comment about the WH not President Trump directly came after President Trump's comment that Corker was too chicken to run for re-election?
Two questions:
How does President Trump know that his endorsement would have made the difference in s Corker victory?After all his endorsement of Luther Strange didn't pull him across the finish line.
I know I stand alone in thinking this kind of trash talking on the part of President Trump is beneath him.
I am not willing to call this Advantage Trump until Blackburn puts that seat in the Republican column in 2018.
Meanwhile Corker is still in the Senate.
In my experience you can only burn so many bridges before your support for your agenda becomes more compromised.
I also disagreed with the way he treated John McCain during the campaign.
McCain got back at him with healthcare votes so was that such a good stategy?
I support President on most things, but here I disagree.

After all his endorsement of Luther Strange didn't pull him across the finish line

The only finish line that matters in in the general election. Trump is batting 1000 in those endorsements.

Since Trump's endorsement of Strange came down to "if he loses I'll back the other guy," I don't think it is in the same league as his other very successful endorsements.
