Politics And Current Events

This is not the country I grew up in.
How old are you?
Two or three times older than most people here.
There were 3,000 domestic bombings in the United States from 1968-1972.

So yes, let’s normalize this. How many people were murdered in synagogues during that time?

Zubov for Kevin Hatcher, worst trade ever.
I truly hated that trade, but it wasn't as bad as Markus Naslund for Alek Stojanov or Rene Robert for Eddie Shack.

Non-Penguins NHL Games 2018-19

I've seen clips of the Eller-Marchand fight, but I didn't see the supposed excessive celebration by Eller that started the fight. Did anyone who watched the game see it, and was Eller indeed rubbing it in on the Bruins?

Kavanaugh would be by far the most partisan SC justice confirmed.
Oh please....the Court has been turning partisan for years.
Both statements are true.

But because he gets pissed off that yes, one party is trying to destroy his life and career, he needs to be reserved and calm? Please.
So just how would not getting this job he wants so badly destroy his career? Is he going to be fired from his current job? That's BS.

He is a boorish liar and likely an alcoholic. Regardless of these accusations, his character is not what I personally would like to see on the Supreme Court. In comparison, I have very little good to say about Gorsuch's ideology - but I have nothing bad to say about his character. You would probabl...

HIs life has been destroyed? Seriously? This is not a trial, and he’s not going to jail. This is just a job interview. Maybe he’ll get the job, maybe he won’t. But this by no means will destroy his life. Are you joking? This man has been accused of being a rapist. How do you think that would affect...

There are legit reasons to doubt Kavanaugh and question some things but at least maybe have some compassion on a guy who's life has been destroyed. HIs life has been destroyed? Seriously?

mikey's Thread of Penguin Randomness

I’d think a goalie was asked for considering their goaltending is roughly two road cones with a stick across the top. That makes sense. Kessel would also make it a "meaty" trade, though there would have to be more than Skinner coming back. Didn't someone post something about a potential "blockbuste...

I'm guessing Brassard, Hagelin and a 3rd round pick.
For Skinner? That's a def downgrade for Carolina, imo.
Okay, then. Brassard, Jack Johnson, Dad, and a 3rd round pick. It doesn't get meatier than that.

I love Dad, and who doesn't? Dad has won a Stanley Cup 100% of the seasons he's played for the Penguins. Crosby and Malkin don't even come close.

I hope it is. I think he wants to tap me so we can get to know each other even more.
Who am I to judge what two consenting adults do in the privacy of their own practice rink?

If you read the article I posted a link to, you will discover that the number of illegal immigrants has held steady at about 8 million between 2009 and 2015. Mexican immigration is decreasing, Asian immigration is increasing, while the total number of illegal immigrants remains steady. Ergo...
