    Sorry if I am coming across confrontational. Maybe it's a venting mechanism.

    This was my wife's friend.

    After I queried him, moden let me know that it was an direct jab or deflection. This time.

    Or are you simply just trying to draw a false comparison between Trump and Venezuela?

    Maybe you should explain your end game there. Because I'm sure there's a corollary between Trump getting a donation and Venezuela SEIZING A PRIVATE COMPANY'S PLANT.

    Is this what you do? Deflect with a narrative that means nothing to the discussion?
    No comparisons, no deflections. I found it extremely strange that Trump took a big gift from Citgo, which happened to be the country that was discussed in the article.

    there is no pure socialism nor capitalism. end points of a spectrum (well probably more like extreme regions of several potential end points) ultimately every government/economy is a mix of socialism and capitalism.

    Join the Remake Leagues! No Experience Necessary.

    Simple Rules:

    1. Stop recruiting new owners for your half dead crappy leagues. Your efforts would be better used looking for a stable league with owners who actually care about their teams. Winning the world series in a half unowned league is not worthy of your time.

    2. If you are trading an elite item like a no1 overall pick or a superstud player, then dont take the first offer you get. Advertise your availability to the league to maximize your return. Your trade partner is not going to protect you from underselling yourself.

    3. Quoted from a thread about Monopoly gameplay: "This strategy will end up killing you in the long run. You WANT to make deals. You WANT to be easy to do business with. If players get the impression that you're always going to ask for unreasonable demands, they'll trade with other players, leaving you out of those trades, meaning you get nothing of value while they benefit. Remember, your goal in a trade should not be to screw your trading partner, but to screw anyone who isn't your trading partner. Then people will catch on and realize that if they're not going to give you fair rates, they're going to be left out in the cold, which means that you shouldn't be dealing with people who play that way either."

    Focus on society or focus on capital. Healthy/functioning societies create capital, not the other way around.

    Stupid analysis, I don't think it's fair to assume a correlation between brain activity and consciousness but still interesting.

    After the draft I went over the cap and wanted to sign a higher salary guy so I currently have a sign and drop offer out there for Dennis Petersen in which I drop Ab Chavez. The offer was submitted on 4/20 and it's now been about 16 in game days with no signing and at this point it seems as if no one is going to sign with my team again.

    Can anyone help out or shed some light on this?
    Did you offer in multiples of $13?

    What about free Mustangs?

    Were any of them 19 yrs old?

    Did I miss anything?

    I'll post here, just because I don't want a new thread. I'm watching the NBA playoffs on directv with their goofy angles and channels. Well, there are no commercials so you get the feed during timeouts. It's super entertaining watching the non-starters screw around during timeouts. Do NBA players watch the kisscam instead of listening to their coach. Yes... yes they do.

    Nice to catch a glimpse of the athletes without their media faces on.
