    There is a lot of truth to this, and we fund Egypt, too -- $1.3 billion this year. We fund them while they brutally repress their own people. We fund them regardless of who is in power. Why? At...

    I understand how the waiver process works, thanks. It's not rocket science.

    I take it from your comments that you think it's a coincidence.

    Drinkers come out in droves when their vice is attacked. Maybe I should make some ignorant generalizations about a couple of hundred million people here based on the fact that they enjoy a drink now...

    The point is that if your week one opponent is scrambling at center, it may benefit you to swipe one of the centers on the market that you think might be helpful to them. That's true even if you...

    You didn't say anything about child molestation. I was attempting to draw a parallel between the two. A larger, stronger person physically attacks a smaller, weaker person. . . So, given that, how...
