5 years means around 26 months, and in California, that could mean as little as 5 months due to prison overcrowding.

No, thank you.

Fuck Tha Police!

Correct

That's what we in the biz like to call synchronicity.

Ya know, I hate the million or so gallons of jet fuel The Blue Angels waste every year as much as the next guy, but just like I forget how horribly little baby calves are treated after that 1st succulent bite of Veal Parmigiana, so do I immediately forget how incredibly wasteful and useless The Blue Angels are as I can see the various pilots' rank insignias on their lapels as they buzz the building.

I truly hate how awesome they are...and I love it.

1st amendment preserved? - good
Vaginas covered - good?

Vaginas need to be uncovered for further scrutiny and a master debate team should get on this issue immediately.

Also, to be fair to Paul, he'll question his own salary because it's paid by the Federal Government.

On things like this, he's a douche, but he's a consistent douche, and he was still the only senator to vote "nay" on the renewal of The Patriot Act, and he's been at the forefront of the internet privacy fight (on the privacy side), as well as other important civil liberty issues.

With Paul, the bad isn't that bad, and the good, as infrequent as it may be, is pretty important, and occasionally a side on which Paul finds himself standing completely alone. So, you take the one with the other.

His constituents could stand to drop the whole asshole thing, though.

MLS will go wherever people ask for MLS, because just like Europe, they can basically have minor league teams in the league that get promoted and demoted depending on the kind of talent the franchise is willing to pay for (i.e. it's cheap and it doesn't hurt the league to have a failed franchise at this point).

The NHL has never placed a franchise in a city that didn't 1st sell out a pre-season exhibition game that was placed there.

Ergo - we ain't getting an NHL team...unless you get a ton of friends to go to the next exhibition game that pops up at the Key.

3 Reasons This Is A Stupid Idea

I have to assume the economic impact study being quoted was paid for by someone wanting to build a new stadium at the time.

Here is what it didn't consider:

The Substitution Effect: Sports are just one form of entertainment. Without an NBA franchise, the people here spend the portion of their entertainment budget currently dedicated to the pro basketball on something else (i.e. dining out, movies, etc…).

The Crowding-Out Effect: Sporting events attract crowds. When people know those crowds are going to appears, those who are not attending the sporting event tend to avoid the general area. For example, Baade and Matheson note that the 2008 Olympics in Beijing failed to increase the number of tourists in Beijing in August of 2008 relative to what the same city saw in August of 2007.

Leakages: Most NBA Players who play for Seattle won't live in the city outside of the NBA Season, and some won't live in the city inside the season (see Lake Sammamish). So, while there would be 12 highly paid employees of the new team, the city would see little of that multimillion dollar payroll spent in the city.

Also - fuck Oklahoma City

(and, the people who think we'll get an NHL franchise when we've never sold out an NHL pre-season exhibition game are drinking the crazy juice again...)

No it's not. Of course, just like I can't say the sun will not explode tomorrow with 100% certainty, I can't know for sure that all the molesting priests have been rooted out, but I don't think that many are arguing that all but a few potential outliers have been identified.

Add 5% to the number that have been caught, if it makes you feel better, then divide the total number of Roman Catholic Priests in the same area as the sex offenders you found, and come back and report that number to the group.

When that's done, go fuck yourself, and have a goddam clue when you infect the world with the noises that come out of your pie hole again.
