We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

It's basketball season.
Or as I like to call it: My annual downvote onslaught from BOL for not accepting the product we have on the court.
By too liberal, do you mean that you believe when an apple falls out of a tree it hits the ground?? That's liberal in Bama.
You see that sign that says 'Rib Tips'??
Well, that and that we are also the same species as Hispanic folks.
Here's a good one for you: I was speaking in front of a group of soon-to-be graduates at a school in Birmingham called Samford University, which is a good school, but a conservative Baptist University. I brought up the importance in today's world for us to spread our wings and learn other cultures, languages, and things like that, especially Spanish these days. I was going over the benefits in certain industries that being fluent in Spanish was help someone make more money. The kids thought that was a sin and an attack on the Lord himself that I spoke about acceptance in anyway of other cultures. Some, not all as this was a very right wing audience even for Alabama, are just so close-minded that I doubt they are able to enjoy life. It's like they are happy with going through life miserable and blaming others for their problems.
What is this thread all about?
Why So Serious?
Some times you just gotta go
Sounds like a BS story to me. How am I supposed to combine you being held in high enough regard by samford to speak to a group of them with your utter disdain for them?
Plus your characterization of them as essentially the christian version of wahhabi fundamentalists at your very tolerant and open minded suggestions...
How am I supposed to combine my lack for not giving a shit what you think and what I do for a living?
Honestly, I am not sure if Samford holds me in any esteem, but I do know that what of the professors does enough to ask me to talk to a student organization he is involved with.
Honestly, I was just pointing out one of my issues with conservatism and Christianity in the South and using a story to give a tiny inkling of my disdain for it. I was not making a huge point about the school. The same could be said about any college in the South, maybe to a slightly lesser degree.
I do admit that I generalized a bit. It was a group of about 80 kids and only 5 or 6 of them made comments to my point.

Thank you kind sir, and one to you as well.
What has this world come to?!?!
Politics & religion always ends in DV's
Not when I agree with you!!!
I agree with you! I agree with you!
Hope all is well with everyone... +1
As good as it's going to get with no football, dad.
Is that a liberal with an automatic assault weapon?
If I could, I would. Guns are cool. It's the whole using them against people that I'm opposed to. If guns were illegal, I wouldn't own them and wouldn't care, but since I can, I do. I don't get up in arms about guns one way or the other(pun intended).
I hear ya. I don't plan on ever using them on people either, but if your breaking into my house at 3 a.m..........good luck. Speaking of guns, I just traded in my Colt .45 on a new .38 Smith & Wesson Friday evening. A box of .45 shells costs over twice as much as .38's now. No fun target shooting when it costs over $1 per shot! My daughter has the same .38 with pink grips. No, I didn't get the pink grips.
