It doesn't seem real. Does anyone in this country even care anymore, you wonder aloud. It cannot possibly get worse tomorrow than it was today, you assure yourself. At some point the people still defending this disaster will finally come around and realize there needs to be an intervention, you earnestly tell the poor counter clerk trying to take your Waffle House order.

Why in the hell are we still tolerating this, you scream into the darkness each night.

I seriously though this was going a different direction!

I found this quote in the WIRED article that Frimmel posted: 

“The net neutrality debate has got many facets to it, and most of the points of the debate are artificial, distracting, and based on an incorrect mental model on how the internet works,” says Dave Taht, a developer of open-source networking software.

Unfortunately, this is how most debates (discussions) go. Human nature causes us to make points that are artificial and distracting, on both sides, and that makes it hard to see through the BS a lot of times. Especially when both (all) sides have valid concerns.

I too am torn on this subject and I am by no means an expert but I found this article, from 2014, helpful. Three things that are extremely important to me are:

Privacy, Freedom, and Competition.

Thank you! I must have missed you comment on the Hunter article... I will look for it.

I think you need good leadership skills at the PG spot

I definitely agree with this, but I would add that we need one additional "leader" to help. Craft was an amazing leader but we all saw what happened when we lost Lighty and even DeShaun? Thomas. You need that lieutenant on the floor to help the general... ok, enough analogies.

At first glance they look like the shoes my grandpa would wear... the orthotic kind with a velcro strap and no laces. Never have I ever spent that kind of money on shoes and I never will! I would be to afraid to wear them at that cost!

I found a $20 pair at Walmart that are comfortable, look good, and last over a year. I wear them nearly every day. Best shoe investment ever.

$495 a pair??? SMDH

Q: Which head coach of a team that you did not sign with was the nicest? Which coach was not the nicest? 

A: “Coach Bob Stoops from Oklahoma. He brought me in like I was family and I really considered that school because of him. I’m not saying because I got in trouble up there, but Coach (Urban) Meyer. The whole time I was up there, he didn’t say more than three words to me. He didn’t welcome me when I got to campus and we never sat down to talk. And that was before the incident.”

- From the article in SEC Country

Do you think the reason Urban didn't spend much time with you, James, is because he knew you weren't seriously looking at tOSU. You were, admittedly, a silent commit to Florida and the only reason you were at tOSU was for the free trip - not knocking the free trip. I probably would have done the same thing - but don't get pissed when (Urban) "barely says more than three words to me". I am sure there were several other recruits on campus that we had a legitimate shot at signing.

This video and the Football Stereotypes video seem like knockoffs of the Dude Perfect videos! That being said they aren't terrible by any means, which is good news since these guys play football for Vanderbilt and will need another vocation after college besides football!
