    So naturally we should be calling all those congressmen "queers" then to go along with calling limbaugh "Drug addict", since apparently the way to highlight someones hypocracy according to you and others it seems is to ridicule them for the thing we're supposed to show compassion/understanding for and not actually ridiculing them for the thing the trait that is actually wrong.

    .....right, gotcha, makes TOTAL compassionate sense.

    I agree with you on the halftime show though.
    Instead you have school greed where the student athletes are essentially treated like pieces of meat. The NCAA takes in billions of dollars, paying coaches millions each year, and the student athletes are spoon fed throughout their academic careers. What happens if one of these high profile recruits suffers a career ending injury their sophomore year? Not only do they lose their scholarship, but it then becomes extremely difficult to compete academically without the aid of their athletic ability.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    He is your partisan reciprocal, only on the grand stage.

    I'm all for "outing" the hypocrites.

    I believe very much in the Malcolm X mantra....I will show compassion to those who are compassionate towards me and disdain towards those who show disdain towards me.

    In other words....I am a true believer in Karma.

    Yes...there are some schools that fit within your hypo here. Personally, I side much more with the schools who really try to provide an academic base for the student athlete. Maybe I am naive...but I believe that outside of a few schools, the vast majority in the NCAA do a good job at providing the athletes with an education.

    The academic requirements are upheld by the respective university, not the NCAA. Which is why Notre Dame has a hard time signing 5 star recruits, while Miami does not.

    I am not even going to get into the scholarship mandates set forth by the NCAA.

    Remove racist, and insert any derogatory remark towards the opposition, and it will still be convenient.

    We all can perceive comments in any fashion we so desire, but until the guy states publicly that he believes one race is inferior to another, calling him racist is a convenient way of downplaying his position. And i think he is an idiot!

    Not because i disagree with republicans, but because of his horse buggy whip comment when he was on Jay Leno's show.

    But that is his drawing power, the controversy. That is like saying Eminem is racist because of his "black bitches only care about your money" song when he was a nobody.

    Do you think Sharpton and Jackson are racists? Obama?


    Or does your name calling limit you to only right wingers?
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us
