Another reason to keep your real name away from these forums is so some loony lefty doesn't visit you in the middle of the night. Ones that sound and act like haystack and others.

American, another reason to keep the identity unknown in these parts. I opened the paper one day and there was Keefe marrying 2 guys in the park. He looked so proud to be partaking in the ceremony. We are losing our way to say the least.

Alfalfa, what are you talking about? Sterling is the real deal. There is nothing fake about him. LaBron James on the other hand... He has no credibility. Like Eastwood said, he is a crotch grabber.

I think the author and your hero should stick to his favorite topic International Journal of Applied Philosophy Volume 26, Issue 1, Spring 2012 Stephen Kershnar Pages 85-104 DOI: 10.5840/ijap20122617

The Morality of Faking ******* Deception in a Dishonest World

In this essay, I argue that orgasm-faking is permissible. My essay consists of three parts. First, I provide a background sketch of the psychology of orgasm-faking. Second, I argue that it is permissible. Third, I consider other arguments that might be made for the permissibility of faking it

Hey Alfalfa, cluck, cluck, cluck, cockle doodle doo. That is right, I am the rooster and you are the chicken. mattdillon, he is probably somewhere on a roof with Festus and Newly. They are officers, exempt from the new roofing law. Christopher, he must be on vacation or else looking for Peter because he is short on money. Hey Paul, Peter might be getting a little sick of your demands always wanting.

As anticipated the juvenile name calling by the libs has started. It troubles you that someone can see through your devious plans. You want to know my name so the voice of reason can be silenced. When anyone confronts this empowered group they resort to name calling. mattdillon is another one, who hides behind the "law" and thinks he is above everyone. He belittles people who live in trailers. I know good people who live in trailers. Look at the lady justice, she is blindfolded and scales are tilted. You want to remove the blindfold and take away the scales. With Alfalfa, Christopher, mattdillon and the rest it is their way or the highway. The saying rob Peter to pay Paul is taking on a life of its own isn't it Christopher?

Steiner, did you see where the Florida gym coach was brought down in a sting operation at the school. He was stealing money from the kids lockers when they were not around. The authorities did something right for a change and planted a wallet with bills that had a "chemical" residue on them. Once anyone touched the money with their hands and their hands were put under a fluorescent light the purplish-green coating came to light. After a few weeks, some of the money came up missing and the school went into a lock down. All the kids went through the line putting their hands under the light. All the hands were clean. The gym teacher put his thieving hands under the light and they were glowing purplish-green. This guy must be related to Richard Trumka.

Hey Alfalfa, 20 years ago, I would have no problem posting my real name. It is the country that has changed not me. The liberal mind set is appalling. The goon squads would make my life impossible. This is NY State you know. I was reading an article yesterday on eminent domain. The article stated the abuse of eminent domain is making a comeback nationally. In the middle of the article, it was stated the abuse of eminent domain never went away in NY State. Another tidbit I read a few days ago is NY State is funding its pensions with promissory notes. No wonder they claim to be fully funded. In the private sector this would be laughed out of countenance. I think the pensioners should be paid with promissory notes so the bond holders don't get stiffed like they are in Detroit. Who set you up to this? Was it the Marshall mattdillon?

hewy tj, sterling would be nice to have at a party.he would bring in the gals. since the gals by their own admission lag in every economic measure, then sterling found the default use for them. since the liberal gals that i see on tv are frumpy, like that teacher beating up that kindergarden boy, its no wonders they need govt help. sterlings gals , on the other hand need no feminist organization. thats why feminism was founded, to help the frumpy ones out. if women lag then the frumpy ones uast really lag. too bad for them. i love sterling at least for his frankness and his choice of women.

hey alflafa, you like the other libs just want to know who the conservative posters are. I like tjs comments. he has figured the libs out. they are hypocrites and intolerant. kershnar writes like tech guys think. i have been in many a technical meeting . kershnar would fit right in. he collects facts , draws a conclusion from them. the libs here do the opposite. first they shout words like greed, right wing, foxnews, etc, nothing scientific but it makes them sound good. then if you still disagree wih them, they want to know your real name. alfalfa, say to yourself every day, not everyone is as stupid as a liberal.

Steiner, I would have liked to have known Sterling when I was younger. I am not complaining, but I bet the party would have been a bit more lively if Sterling would have been there.

Hey Steiner, Sterling should buy a WNBA team. With Sterling's marketing strategies in no time the WNBA would surpass the NBA in popularity. LaBron James would be on his knees begging Sterling to come back. Of course, with Sterling around that might not be the best place for LaBron James to be.

Let's forgive the player for being from the hood, but forget about the 80 year old man that grew up in a different time. Double down on the double standards.

Steiner, they say things happen in 3's. First, we have a guy who may be put away for being a roofing offender. Second, we have a couple juveniles facing a possible felony conviction for turkey hunting. Three, we have an owner of a team going to watch the game of the team he owns being charged for trespassing. Hopefully, we have his the end of this non-sense for a while. Unfortunately, we are probably just beginning.

I had no rooting interest until now. After this non-sense, the team with the most white players I want to win. 2 can play this game. This is not racism. This is just to counter the foolishness going on here. The league and the players are way out of line. I don't see how anyone can defend them. Do the colleges still have the "black" student unions? I would like to see someone start a "white" student union. The double standard is ridiculous.

Maybe Sterling should begin a collection for all the fatherless children these players have brought into the world. Surely, they would be being picked on again because they are black. I think Calvin Murphy has 13 kids and each one has a different mother. Looks like Murphy had a lot more than just a jump shot.

ttc: I agree w/most of what you said except for if the players "choose" to not play. This would be a clear violation of their contracts, and players would therefore NOT "continue to collect their paychecks."

The owners simply don't want to risk losing money on a possible boycott, which is the ONLY reason (as PC noted) why many owners support the commish's decision to expel Sterling and force him to sell. What the commish, players and general public ignore is that most legal experts believe it's clearly beyond ANYONE'S authority to force someone to sell ANYTHING they own (except thru eminent domain). Even if the league has the right to demand that Sterling sell the team, what if he sets the price at a ridiculous $500 BILLION? Does the commish have the right to set the asking price, too?

Who can say that they have never sais anything racist? No one. Every single person has at one time or another said a disparaging remark about another race. Sterling was having a private conversation and was set up. Now can he be forced to sell the team? No he cannot. Can he be banned for life from games? No he cannot. And can he be fined for having a private conversation and then having someone record it? No he can not. We have a first amendment and the right to free speech is guaranteed by the first amendment. Sterling talked as we all do. So if the players want to quit they can. But in the mean time the players will collect their paychecks. This is after all America. Love it or leave it.

the libs seem to forget the ridicule heaped against bill cosby when he spoke of the plight of africans in america. Poor education, poor engkish skills. this aroused the libs ire in huge quantities. you can only agree wihth a liberal. dont forget the repeating stories we see that college speakers are turned away for having views not accepted by so called tolerant liberals. yep, liberals are an intolerant bunch. its ok for the rappers, but not any one else. imagine if white singers made music like rappers ? riots would ensue.
