  1. Bergdahl pleading guilty to desertion

    Not everyone was bless with the 'irrational rant gene'.
  2. Actually, the point is that it's so easy to believe. Because it's true! This is what our democracy/capitalistic system has become. The issue on the table is, what do we do about it?
  3. It's based in science. If you can't accept the science, you can't accept the logic that results.
  4. Poor Hillary

    Considering the range of things to really worry about, it's depressing this thread topic get's such engaged responses.
  5. Now that we have (hopefully) calmed down

    I'm OK with taking a chance on somebody. After all, it's now been long enough for us to know what we have with Gus.
  6. LSU Game Report Card

    As I recall, we didn't make a first down in the second half last year against UGA and I think we made only one first down in the 2nd half of the LSU game (thanks to a penality).
  7. This was a 60 Minutes segment yesterday. If you didn't catch it, it's worth your time to see or read about it. Our own pharmaceutical industry - working through our own government - have created this problem. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/ex-dea-agent-opioid-crisis-fueled-by-drug-industry-and-congress/ Whistleblower Joe Rannazzisi says drug distributors pumped opioids into U.S. communities -- knowing that people were dying -- and says industry lobbyists and Congress derailed the DEA's efforts to stop it. In the midst of the worst drug epidemic in American history, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration's ability to keep addictive opioids off U.S. streets was derailed -- that according to Joe Rannazzisi, one of the most important whistleblowers ever interviewed by 60 Minutes. Rannazzisi ran the DEA's Office of Diversion Control, the division that regulates and investigates the pharmaceutical industry. Now in a joint investigation by 60 Minutes and The Washington Post, Rannazzisi tells the inside story of how, he says, the opioid crisis was allowed to spread -- aided by Congress, lobbyists, and a drug distribution industry that shipped, almost unchecked, hundreds of millions of pills to rogue pharmacies and pain clinics providing the rocket fuel for a crisis that, over the last two decades, has claimed 200,000 lives. JOE RANNAZZISI: This is an industry that allowed millions and millions of drugs to go into bad pharmacies and doctors' offices, that distributed them out to people who had no legitimate need for those drugs. BILL WHITAKER: Who are these distributors? JOE RANNAZZISI: The three largest distributors are Cardinal Health, McKesson, and AmerisourceBergen. They control probably 85 or 90 percent of the drugs going downstream. BILL WHITAKER: You know the implication of what you're saying, that these big companies knew that they were pumping drugs into American communities that were killing people. JOE RANNAZZISI: That's not an implication, that's a fact. That's exactly what they did......

  8. The moron wants an IQ test

    No, it wasn't a lie, it was a leak. Big difference.
  9. This is why....

    I've finally given up on hope that Gus will grow out of this. He's had enough time and experience to show he is capable of change. Football is not rocket science. He is way, way overpaid. So, now the question is, who can we get as a replacement? I just want to hold on to as many players and recruits as possible while doing so.
  10. Most Deflating Loss in a Long Time

    Danielson mentioned that after the game.
  11. ***Auburn vs. LSU -- Game Thread***

    I'd go for 1st.
  12. ***Auburn vs. LSU -- Game Thread***

    Here comes the safety.
  13. ***Auburn vs. LSU -- Game Thread***

    Kerryon = "Sweetness"
  14. ***Auburn vs. LSU -- Game Thread***

    Nice tackle Dean!
  15. ***Auburn vs. LSU -- Game Thread***

    Geez, they've only got one effective play.
