    Fair enough. But I don't know if that wasn't also a logical decision. Sometimes you have to lash out at a bully in order to stop the bullying.

    I'm sure someone has pointed this out already: It's not a first amendment issue. He is free to say whatever he likes. And ESPN is free to keep his services or choose not to.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Sounds sort of familiar. Back in the early 80s, I was taking some advanced summer classes at high school and a guy on the football team, Mike, was taking summer school math classes. During breaks, everyone ended up in the weight room because there was really nothing else to do. One day, for reasons I never did figure out, Mike decided he wanted to pick on me. He had a good 100 pounds on me, he just started slapping me and punching me in the tight confines of the weight room. I just backed out into the hall. I'd been taking martial arts classes for years and the second I had room to do more than block, I put him on the floor. Didn't hurt him any, except for his pride, but it happened just as the assistant dean came around a corner and we both spent the next half-hour running laps. No clue why any of it happened but we became really good friends after that.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I don't buy the premise that bullies are superior, stronger people.

    One statement on a lousy fox show can end his money train. He has to be one pissed off dude right about now.

    He wasn't a bully. He was just an ***hole. He'd lost a student council homeroom representative election to me back in 8th grade, and he didn't want to let it go. It wasn't a logical decision because if he'd bothered to report the incident I'd have been suspended AND arrested (school board policy).

    He was certainly bullying you at the time.

    You can call Obama inept at his job but it is totally wrong calling him Hitler. Perhaps you should talk to a Holocaust survivor and open your brain a little.

    But perhaps the easily use of Hitler to describe someone is that we have become a nation of pussies. We think a little disruption in our lives is equal to the pain many suffered under Hitler. It is pathetic how soft our flabby butts have became.
