College / Imbecile Governor making decisions based on propaganda
« on: January 14, 2016, 03:42:50 PM »
Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has ordered state officials to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood and its affiliates through the state Medicaid program, a move the organization said on Wednesday it would challenge in court.

Brownback, a Republican, said in his state of the state address on Tuesday that he would direct the state health secretary to ensure that no taxpayer money go to Planned Parenthood, which he said trafficked in baby body parts.

"No longer will we send the money of hard-working Kansans to fund an industry that disrespects life and violates the moral conscience of our people," Brownback said in a statement.

The governor's statement was an apparent reference to videos secretly recorded by an anti-abortion group that activists said showed that Planned Parenthood officials in some states had discussed the sale of aborted fetal tissue.

Planned Parenthood has denied any illegal payments, calling the videos distortions of the issue of fetal-tissue donations. The organization has said it has received only reimbursements for its costs, which are legal under U.S. law.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said it would issue a termination letter to Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri.

Laura McQuade, president and chief executive of the Kansas and Mid-Missouri Planned Parenthood, said the planned termination would result in a legal battle.

"Kansans and their health care providers are not Mr. Brownback's punching bag and we will fight back," McQuade said.

Federal funds cannot be used for abortions, but Planned Parenthood also provides Medicaid covered services such as contraception, cancer screening and other care.

Several states have sought to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood following the release of the videos. Courts have blocked some of those attempts at least temporarily in Utah, Louisiana, Alabama and other states.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So to sum up Brownback as Governor....he bankrupted the state with idiot fiscal decisions (the old GOP standby....massive upper class tax cuts!). He continues to fight the ACA in his state which would benefit tons of poor Kansans, and now he's decided to run the "abstinence only" route, because it's apparently so successful (thanks Bristol!) and because "planned parenthood trafficked in baby parts", which has been debunked by every credible source as hogwash.

Seriously...does this guy do ANYTHING that shows a lick of common sense?

Uh huh. What's the point of a dual "National Champion" when no teams worth a damn show up?

Off-Topic / Mother Teresa Getting Shot out of a Canon
« on: December 19, 2015, 05:30:00 PM »
The Catholic Church announced that Mother Teresa will be shot out of a cannon in September of 2016, which will apparently make her a saint.

Question for Catholic forum members: why aren't professionals shot out of a cannon at the circus considered saints?

Discuss....

Other Sports / Sooner named top scholar/athlete
« on: December 10, 2015, 10:02:09 AM »
Oklahoma center Ty Darlington thought he had no shot at the Campbell Trophy, not with fellow finalist Montana defensive end Derek Crittenden, who has a 4.0 GPA in chemistry and is a Rhodes Scholarship finalist. “I ain’t that smart,” Darlington said. But Darlington and his little ol’ 3.91 GPA in arts & sciences won the award -- given to the top scholar-athlete in college football by the National Football Foundation -- and its $25,000 postgraduate scholarship Tuesday. In his acceptance speech, Darlington said his mother had taught him to “love Jesus, love the Sooners and hate all shades of orange.” I think Syracuse and Florida got caught in that Texas/Oklahoma State crossfire.

College / Substitution rules for duals?
« on: December 03, 2015, 09:55:19 PM »
Are coaches allowed to weigh in more than one guy at a weight? Then select which will wrestle later? Or do they "commit" by weighing only one guy?  Can they weigh more than one and then pick which will wrestle, and if so when do they have to let the scoring table know who will wrestle?

College / Have any "tweeners" been successful in college as heavies?
« on: November 26, 2015, 01:47:36 AM »
I'm talking about the guys at 220 pounds. Do you guys know of any that wrestled HWT in college and placed highly in NCAAs? Maybe Zbriskie?

assing and a bit personal, but I had penile reduction surgery the damn thing used to get stepped on in public showers. Once at the gym a guy tripped over it and knocked his front teeth out on the shower wall. I couldn't believe how much blood there was. I tried to help. I started over but tripped over it myself and hit my left knee pretty hard on the floor. I was sure it was broken. Before I could stop crying like an infant the other poor fellow bled out and died. Apparently he was a hemophiliac. Then the lights went off. I'd forgotten it was nearly closing time in all the excitement. There was no way I could make it all the way over to my locker with a major leg injury. It would be at least another 8 hours before I was discovered, and I hadn't eaten in almost 45 minutes. If I was going to survive I would have to resort to cannibalism.

The next morning I was found laying in a puddle of excrement with bloodstained lips, a grossly distended belly, and a partially devoured human corpse was sprawled facedown on the floor next to me. Oddly, the buttocks were completely gone. I was rushed to the hospital and treated for a mild bruise to my knee.

Thank God for penile reduction surgery.

Polls / Hot Dog on an Ant Hill....how long till it's gone?
« on: September 13, 2015, 12:56:25 PM »
There is an ant hill about 50 feet from the back door. Had a hot dog left over from the day before. I dropped the hot dog (regular sized Nathan's Famous all beef) on top of the anthill (not obstructing the hole). Within a couple minutes I bet 30 ants were crawling all over the thing.

How long till the dog is gone?

Off-Topic / A Lack of Proper Planning
« on: September 03, 2015, 11:05:03 AM »
So cut the "cable" cord last week. $215 a month for Comcast "Triple Play" finally got the better of me. When ENCORE started showing John Wayne movies from the 50's and 60's....I realized it was time to discuss rates with Comcast. I cancelled the "premium" package with Encore, but I was just getting started. I demanded they remove all equipment fees (seeing as how that equipment was amortized a couple years ago, minimum), but they refused ($36 extra month), so it will end up costing them $150 a month. Yes, cut everything but the internet (and to be fair, Comcast broadband has been very good). Now I'm down to $65 a month, although did have to buy a new modem. Modem/wifi cost me $129 and now the WIFI is over twice as fast as it was when using Comcast gear (which I was paying for). Figures.

Here is the problem....HOW IN HELL am I going to watch OU play football this season? Do any of you guys know of any online sources for college football? I don't mind paying a fee for access to the games. Thanks in advance!

Got to thinking...in this era of digital special effects it would be quite easy to convert the Confederate Flag to the Union Jack....and the name "General Lee" to "General Cornwallis". What you guys think? Then the show would be socially acceptable again. Whatcha think?

Off-Topic / Creationist Museum Acquires 5,000-Year-Old T. Rex Skeleton
« on: April 16, 2015, 05:49:05 AM »
TULSA, OK—In a major coup for the growing field of creation science, the perfectly preserved remains of a 5,000-year-old Tyrannosaurus Rex were delivered Monday to Tulsa's Creationist Museum of Natural History.

"The Good Lord has, in His benevolence, led us to an important breakthrough for scientific inquiry," Creationist Museum of Natural History curator Dr. Elijah Gill said. "Our museum has many valuable and exciting exhibits that testify to Creation and shine light on the Lord's divine plan. But none have been as exciting—or anywhere near as old—as this new T. Rex specimen named 'Methuselah.' This skeleton, which dates back to roughly 3,000 B.C., offers the most compelling proof yet that the Earth was made by God roughly 10,000 years ago."

Added Gill: "It's awe-inspiring to gaze on something that actually lived here on Earth, so very many years ago."

Methuselah was discovered last summer in northern Turkey by a team of Oral Roberts University archaeologists, who were on a dig searching for the Tower of Babel. According to Gill, the skeleton, which stands nearly 20 feet tall, possesses terrifying, razor-sharp teeth and claws, confirming that it was an evil beast in league with Satan, the Great Deceiver.

Using advanced dating processes from the cutting edge of biblical paleontology, the Oral Roberts team determined that Methuselah lived during the late Antediluvian period, or "The Age of the Dinosaurs." They said the pristine condition of the find strongly suggests that it perished in the Great Flood, fossilizing quickly and thoroughly due to the tremendous water pressure during the event.

"It was a truly majestic beast," said Gill, gazing up at the massive skeleton. "One almost has to mourn that there was no room for it on the Ark."

Gill called the discovery "a powerfully compelling refutation" of secular scientists' long-held assertion that dinosaurs lived on Earth millions of years before humans.

"The fact that no human remains were found anywhere in the vicinity of the site of the skeleton serves as proof of the tyrannosaur's ferocity and huge appetite," Gill said.

"At most," he added, "tyrannosaurs existed a few days before the first humans, given that the birds and the beasts were created early in the week, and Adam and Eve were made on the sixth day."

Founded in 1874, the Creationist Museum of Natural History has amassed a collection of thousands of exhibits from around the world demonstrating that the Earth was made by the hand of a Divine Creator over the course of a week, roughly 10,000 years ago. Among its most prized exhibits are a trilobite believed to have lived during the Jewish Exodus and a stunning specimen of "Java Gibbon."

Methuselah has caused such a stir that even supporters of evolutionary science have found themselves caught up in "T. Rex Fever." Christopher Eldridge, director of New York's Museum of Natural History, raved that the acquisition was "absolutely inconceivable" and "not to be believed." Dr. Harmon Briggs, a Smithsonian Institution paleobiologist, gushed in a phone interview that the discovery of the 5,000-year-old beast was "mind-boggling" and "in defiance of all the human senses."

Said Gill: "I have even received an exciting letter from a paleontologist at UCLA asserting that Methuselah could be even older than 5,000 years. Who knows, it might even date back to the Sixth Day of Creation."

The T. Rex skeleton will be on public display at the museum beginning Feb. 3. Conversions will be performed every two hours at the museum's baptismal font, located in the Apologetics wing.
