  1. That is a good question. They both are terrible.
  2. You let the board go down for weeks with no explanation or warning. Now it is back up but for how long? You subject us to Kurz and think we should just accept that. Go F yourselves.
  3. The well known right wing blog writer Ted Koppel on the state of the so called media: Journalism legend Ted Koppel feels that The New York Times and Washington Post have both “decided as organizations” that President Trump is bad for America. “I’m terribly concerned that when you talk about the New York Times these days, when you talk about the Washington Post these days, we’re not talking about the New York Times of 50 years ago. We are not talking about the Washington Post of 50 years ago,” Koppel said on March 7 at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in a clip that was uncovered on Monday by NewsBusters. “We’re talking about organizations that I believe have, in fact, decided as organizations that Donald J. Trump is bad for the United States,” Koppel said. “We have things appearing on the front page of the New York Times right now that never would have appeared 50 years ago.” Koppel explained that analysis and commentary didn’t use to appear on the front page, but times have changed since Trump entered the world of politics. “I remember sitting at the breakfast table with my wife during the campaign after the Access Hollywood tape came out and the New York Times, and I will not offend any of you here by using the language but you know exactly what words were used, and they were spelled out on the front page of the New York Times,” he said. “I turned to my wife and I said, ‘The Times is absolutely committed to making sure that this guy does not get elected.’” Koppel said Trump’s perception that “the establishment press is out to get him” is indeed accurate. “He’s not mistaken when so many of the liberal media, for example, described themselves as belonging to the Resistance. What does that mean? That’s not said by people who consider themselves reporters, objective reporters of facts,” Koppel said. “That’s the kind of language that’s used by people who genuinely believe, and I rather suspect with some justification, that Donald Trump is bad for the United States.” The Times and Post did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
  4. On a positive note Jumbo is shooting more and becoming a bit more angry. This bodes well.
  5. The sharks were very rarely first to the puck. Lots of chasing and when the opportunity was there to lay down a big hit it was avoided. Burns in this regard needs to step up. He is very capable of laying down huge clean hits. He for some reason just avoids it. With his size he can change a game and a series with a meaner attitude.
  6. The sharks don’t with with the conviction that either the Preds of GKs do. These do alter the game. I am talking about hard clean legal hits. They take guys out of series and change the way guys play and force turnovers. There is nobody on the sharks that play that way. Kane can buy so far since his return he has avoided this. Maybe he is still hurt.
  7. The idiot promised to build a wall. He had the house and the senate and did not get it done. #loser.
  8. The sharks are soft. Heed made some really bad plays. If they ply this team in the first round they lose.
  9. So the Sharks have allowed FF to injure key players back to back late in the season. First Kane and now Pavs with zero response either time. They deserve an early exit.
  10. This team will go as far as their goaltender does. Ouch.
  11. Only the party line is allowed on campus comrade! A politics professor whose op-ed in The New York Times in October helped spark protests among liberal students at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, N.Y., now claims the college and faculty have left him to fight the backlash alone. Samuel J. Abrams, who has a PhD from Harvard University and an AB from Stanford University, told Fox News via email Monday evening: “Faculty have to hold the line on free speech and promote discourse. That didn’t happen at Sarah Lawrence, and I hope that my story is a warning that is heard around the country.” Students claimed they were offended by the supposed “anti-Blackness, anti-LGBTQ+, and anti-woman bigotry” of Abrams, professor of politics at Sarah Lawrence College, and visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, and staged a large sit-in. They also presented demands, such as a “tenure review.” He said Monday evening that his philosophy was not an attack on students: “Viewpoint diversity is asking that multiple viewpoints are considered on campus and in the classroom. So that means rather than simply attack capitalism and free markets without a deep understanding of history and teach socialism, we also teach the value of markets, choice and individualism.” He said his ideology has been to teach students the realities of adult life: “Rather than teach that government needs to get bigger, and is the solution to poverty and improving the welfare of Americans, and this is often the only view taught, we need to also teach how capitalism has lifted millions up, and allowed markets to make the nation efficient.” Abrams said 40 professors endorsed the demand list, and 12 percent of the faculty “endorsed the students’ demand to challenge my tenure and my right to free speech and the expression of ideas.” The college didn’t return Fox News’ request for comment. “…With the (students’) latest attempt to attack academic freedom, the Sarah Lawrence faculty could have redeemed themselves and been galvanized to support free expression. Instead, they opted for silence — and, what’s worse, many of them were supportive of the student protesters’ demands,” Abrams wrote in The Spectator over the weekend. He also wrote about the repercussions he received for the original opinion piece last fall: “There was a national media storm in which I was slandered and defamed, my family’s safety was threatened, and my personal property was destroyed on campus.” In the Times, Abrams wrote about original survey data of a “nationally representative sample of roughly 900 ‘student-facing’ administrators” which found “liberal staff members outnumber their conservative counterparts by the astonishing ratio of 12-1. Only 6 percent of campus administrators identified as conservative to some degree, while 71 percent classified themselves as liberal or very liberal.” He added in the October opinion piece, “It’s no wonder so much of the nonacademic programming on college campuses is politically one-sided. … It appears that a fairly liberal student body is being taught by a very liberal professoriate — and socialized by an incredibly liberal group of administrators.”
