Trey Gowdy is an uncompromising seeker of the truth. Love that guy.

I’m glad I don’t inhabit the sad world you do.
First, thanks to you and your son for your service, it truly is appreciated. That being said, both you and he volunteered to enter a profession where there is a distinct possibility that you will be killed, something the professional football player is distinctly unlikely to encounter during his playing career.
Coopers wife had a valid concern about her husband’s chances of dying, DOING WHAT HE LOVED TO DO, VOLUNTARILY, WITHOUT ANYONE HOLDING A GUN TO HIS HEAD, just like Russell Wilson, you and your son. You all have the freedom, at least for a while yet, to choose to make a living the way that you want so long as it doesn’t violate an laws
It would be the height of stupidity to block any of you from freely choosing to make a living the way YOU want to, and a sure sign the end of America is truly fast approaching if pabulum puking progressives like Gladwell get their way an end a perfectly legitimate enterprise.
(I would, however, force all professional sports to make due on their own without any tax payer investments what so ever.)
You're right bpuryea, we did do what we loved/wanted to do, and we did not do it for the big pay checks that either came with it or were promised to come with it. So I am somewhat confused when you say, "I’m glad I don’t inhabit the sad world you do." I can assure you that neither my son nor myself or the world which we inhabit are sad. You see, this is what is wrong with this country today. NO ONE and I repeat NO ONE can have an opposing view point on anything without being called names, vilified or put down by people that don't agree with what they have to say. NO ONE in this country knows how to argue any more. In a true argument, you don't call names " puking progressives" or raise your voice, you strengthen your argument to get someone to see your side of it. And if they don't, then your argument either wasn't very good or the other person is just to set in their ways to want to change. But the way you and others talk, you would think that he was trying to take away YOUR JOB in football. Do you play professional football bpuryea? Or are you just one of those guys that sits back and whines when a call doesn't go the way you wanted for the team you like? Kind of like the people that tried to tell me that what I was doing in the military was wrong when they had never put on a uniform. So, is it your livelihood we are talking about, or did you just need something to whine about? I don't see the government doing anything at this time. Do you?

This guy is the perfect example of what an A$$ Clown looks like.
I want to know how the minority kids who set next to him during his school years had any less of a chance to learn than he did. Were they ushered off to a different class room because they weren’t white males?
And why would he think that dumbing-down the curriculum for all would even the field? What CC will really do is make those kids that will learn in spite of the school system the ones with all of the advantages, but that’s okay!
I tell my kids all the time, both of whom are really good students, not just in the class room but at home where we discuss many topics daily, that we need the D and F students so we have someone to flip our burgers, bag our groceries and haul away our trash.

What kind of careful parsing of the morality and legality of Gosnel’s actions must the pro-death camp be engaged in if they feel that he should have been convicted as he was today?
Had he not botched the abortion and successfully killed the infant in the womb, there would have been nary an eyebrow raised let alone a trial.
So for the pro-death crowd, the proximity of the infant outside of the womb mere minutes after it was inside the womb makes it murder?
I will never be able to reconcile this kind of imbecilic reasoning.
For the pro-death crowd, wouldn’t a ruling more consistent with their barbaric beliefs have been that Gosnel be convicted of medical malpractice for botching the procedure? Who cares what he does with the infant who is just a mass of protoplasm after all.

Probably should research a little more before posting your baffoonery.
Let’s see if you can spot the problem! (All values in constant 2005 dollars)
First four years under Clinton combined total revenue was 6.596.1 trillion. Combined total spending was 7527.8 trillion which yielded a 931.7 billion combined deficit or 12.4% at an effective overall tax rate of 36.6%
First four years under Bush combined total revenue was 8094.5 trillion. Combined total spending was 8955.4 trillion which yielded a 860.9 billion combined deficit or 9.6% at an effective overall tax rate of 33.9%
First four years under Obama combined total revenue was 7915.0 trillion. Combined total spending was 12593.2 trillion which yielded a 4678.2 trillion combined deficit or 37.1% at an effective overall tax rate of 33.9%
Clearly, lower taxes ins’t the problem, spending is.
