  1. He wants to build a massive high end retirement community in fucking Scotland? LMAO. His idiocy knows no bounds. Come retire to sunny ... Scotland.
  2. Agree 100%. From another former Abbott voter. Every Republican politician in Texas is such a weasel and coward it’s just amazing. I actually think this is a problem for “both sides”, but it’s probably more pronounced for Republicans given their feelings on government vs. the private sector. How do you even go into politics as a Republican unless you’re some creepy narcissistic grifter? “Government is for the people who couldn’t make it in the private sector, and it is absolutely 100% NOT the answer for people trying to make a difference since what we need is government out of our lives ... with that said, I’ve decided to run for office.”
  3. Warehime is actually retiring from coaching and going into the oil & gas business. By chance one night on a drunken recruiting trip to Odessa, it was discovered that if he shits down a drill site, it is actually 500% more effective than traditional fracking techniques. In addition to his own personal fortune, stock prices for Exxon and Chipotle are both expected to skyrocket.
  4. Actually, I think it’s more basic than that. It’s about identifying a large swath of Americans that are just soup-to-nuts pieces of fucking shit. Like showing up and declaring a pederast someone deserving of a bullet. Sure, it’s not always the pederasts fault, they could have been damaged or diddled or broken when they were too young to do anything about it. But most folks never stop to give a fuck about that, and honestly, I’m ok with that. Just like I’m ok labeling PEOPLE THAT QUOTE THE SAME LONGCAT PARAGRAPH OVER AND OVER AGAIN AS PART OF A TEDIOUS EXERCISE EVEN THOUGH THEIR POINT HAS ALREADY BEEN MADE as soulless evil fucks who are a huge, mindless problem with America and advancing humanity as a whole. Fuck them.
  5. That’s interesting. You mention a murderer getting a full pardon, implying he got a full get out of jail free card like Stone, and then you link to a story that talks about a murderer having his death sentence changed to life in prison instead. Because life in prison is totally comparable to “no jail for you, Mr. Stone.” We all know you’re a liar, but you could at least have the dignity to not make them such stupid and obvious lies. Edit - After reading more, I see this has already been addressed. Keep up the good work, honest citizens of Surly.
  6. Nobody is going to have a perfect record. But unless he picks Warren, Pelosi, Michelle Obama, one of the Squad, or Hillary, it’s not going to drive angry GOTV efforts on the right, and therefore it won’t really matter much for election purposes.
  7. We actually took recruits that we didn't even meet or watch in person? LMAO. I'm envisioning a scene where Brock Fitzhenry arrives on freshmen move in day and the coaches try to make him room with the student managers, but he keeps insisting he's on the team. Or Taylor Doyle rolling up in his wheelchair on Junior Day to commit and it's a legit surprise. "If we pull his offer, is that like, an ADA violation or something? Have someone look into that. And how is he going to be in the photo with the other commits? We're all set up over there and there aren't any fucking wheelchair ramps. Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot to tell the photographer to make sure we pick a place to accommodate our CRIPPLED recruits! Silly me."
  8. How the fuck is Carl going to post about women's basketball recruiting? "There aren't enough quality THOTS Indigo Girls concerts in Austin to recruit top talent!"
  9. Might want to read up on some more recent articles. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/07/business/sweden-economy-coronavirus.html "This is what has happened: Not only have thousands more people died than in neighboring countries that imposed lockdowns, but Sweden’s economy has fared little better. “They literally gained nothing,” said Jacob F. Kirkegaard, a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington. “It’s a self-inflicted wound, and they have no economic gains.” ... Per million people, Sweden has suffered 40 percent more deaths than the United States, 12 times more than Norway, seven times more than Finland and six times more than Denmark. ... Sweden’s central bank expects its economy to contract by 4.5 percent this year, a revision from a previously expected gain of 1.3 percent. The unemployment rate jumped to 9 percent in May from 7.1 percent in March. “The overall damage to the economy means the recovery will be protracted, with unemployment remaining elevated,” Oxford Economics concluded in a recent research note. This is more or less how damage caused by the pandemic has played out in Denmark, where the central bank expects that the economy will shrink 4.1 percent this year, and where joblessness has edged up to 5.6 percent in May from 4.1 percent in March. In short, Sweden suffered a vastly higher death rate while failing to collect on the expected economic gains. The coronavirus does not stop at national borders. Despite the government’s decision to allow the domestic economy to roll on, Swedish businesses are stuck with the same conditions that produced recession everywhere else. And Swedish people responded to the fear of the virus by limiting their shopping — not enough to prevent elevated deaths, but enough to produce a decline in business activity."
  10. Yeah, I didn’t think I was being particularly subtle. But seriously, this is what Myslinski looks like in high school - do you really think the son of an NFL S&C coach is maxed out at 17 looking like this:
  11. Obama and Eric Holder were the real felons. You know, because ... well, you know why. Biden is just old and senile, though, not a criminal because ... well, again, you know.
  12. The mask really draws attention to Trump’s neck vagina. If he were smart, he’d try to get the CDC to tell everyone they have to wear neck coverings, too.
  13. Well, it’s like that old saying. “Behind every great Republican man, there’s a hideous incel ghoul ghostwriting him and pouring his hatred of the world into every word.” (Roy Cohn)
  14. Do we really know Hand is great at diamond in the rough OL evaluations? Cosmi, Kerstetter and Christian Jones are the lower ranked OL recruits that panned out (or, with Jones, that we expect to pan out). Those guys were all from the first two Herman classes with Warehime at OL coach. With that said, I don’t agree that the son of the Jaguars S&C coach will ever be maxed out physically in high school or college. That dude will probably follow the Tony Mandarich growth curve. If he has good film and schools like Oregon and Iowa are interested, then that’s probably a better bet than James Brockermeyer or Ezra to be honest. I would normally say I hope we reserve a couple of spots at OL for jumbo athletes that show out as seniors like Jones or Hookfin, but since we probably won’t have high school football this year we may need to get more creative. To me, I think it would be foolish to let DT numbers squeeze out Ikechukwu Iwunnah. He’s a lean 6’4 275, quick, and he freaking triple jumped on their track team. Try him on the OL if we get Turner and Regis. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up being a better long term prospect at both DL and OL than a lot of guys ranked much higher than him right now.
  15. Source? Some of those seem unlikely to be so pro Trump. White women in New Jersey are majority Trumpkins? Whites overall in Illinois and New Jersey (including women) go for Trump? Connecticut is white by a large majority, Biden is going to win there by 20 points overall, but white men there go for Trump? NY and California, too? Those are less white states, but he’s still going to lose by 30 points in the overall total in those states. Wait, and how is Iowa blue for white people? That can’t be right in the other direction or else no Republican would ever win any election in that state at any level. Admittedly, I know Trump has to have a lot of white support in most states given how huge the margins for Democrats are with minorities, but this looks more like a Trump vs. Hillary map than a map where he is down 10 points nationally.
  16. I don’t know what would be best, but something really does need to be done about restoring our collective internet skepticism. I still remember the early days of the transition to the internet when Wikipedia wasn’t even considered an acceptable source because any yahoo could submit something, and people basically thought every news item was a lie unless it came from the website of a well known print or tv media entity. Somehow we’ve gone from that to “Fake news! I trust Crazy McCrazyperson’s blog and random stuff on Facebook to give me the real scoop!” It is kind of like our response to the pandemic. The internet became so ubiquitous in our lives that we are simply going to use it frequently and see a lot of crap, but it takes effort to verify whether that crap is true ... so we just gave up on trying to vet information. Because that would be inconvenient. Also, now that everyone who is online revolves their social interactions around winning arguments instead of trying to have a conversation or learn something, information is valued for whether it fits a narrative rather than accuracy, anyway. Ain’t got no time for that nuanced and appropriately qualified article based on actual facts - just give me some ammo!
  17. Do you really know Rand Paul would do that? This is the guy who spent his career lambasting the NSA for intruding on people’s privacy (in show votes he knew wouldn’t actually pass) ... before he used his government position to out protected whistleblowers. He will do whatever he thinks will get him votes. When push comes to shove, his base is not really pot friendly libertarians. It is now deranged Trumpkin reactionaries who want to recreate 1955 in their minds.
  18. Montana and Utah could also go blue if we’re really looking at Biden up +10 nationally come election time.
  19. On the contrary, doing it too late to matter and with a haphazard, incompetent rollout is precisely why it was probably Trump’s doing. Trump can’t handle making toast without bankrupting a company or ruining a government, but you expect him to successfully execute an actual 4d chess move to get re-elected?
  20. Um, unless I’m missing something, if First Baptist Dallas got $5,000,000 on a PPP loan (putting aside all the other issues with that), that means they claim to have a monthly payroll of $2,000,000. A $2,000,000 MONTHLY payroll. For a “church”.
  21. Tucker Carlson reaching (even by his standards) to take clips out of context in order to specifically smear her on his show suggests she might be a serious candidate. And you’re not kidding about punching all the buttons:
  22. This is going to ruin all those delightful generational smack conversations. The Olds going +21 Biden and the only demographic where a Trump is close comprises much of Gen X. Where is your God now, smug Surly Gen X yuppies?
  23. Lol wut? Yes, the problem is people think Pence actually knows how to hold a Bible right side up after he gasses protestors. Good call, Donnie.
  24. Would you like to hear a story about how only the most pathetic and tragically insecure incels bitch and moan about not being able to find an attractive woman at one of the largest universities in the country located in the one of the largest metro areas in the United States?
