Grimes reminds me so much of Newman last year it’s crazy. He’s so close to turning the corner and being “a guy.” Newman literally sucked for like 95% of the season, but he finally got there. We had threads about how awful he was and how he “seemed” like a cancer.
I think Grimes will get better. He’s already shown his shot is starting to fall. Next step is being able to defend for 35 minutes a game and literally turn the corner on the drive. It’s coming.
Grimes will be VERY good at KU if he sticks around and just plays. It’s been a huge adjustment for him to play off the ball.
@Texas-Hawk-10 I appreciate this perspective. While Devonte struggled to produce against Oregon, going 0-7, he shot 9-18 the following year in our loss to Villanova. This (the Oregon game) I think clouds my judgement of Devonte’s ability to defer, but you are right that Devonte was comfortable in a leadership role.
I forgot how good Devonte was against Villanova. It was not Devontes fault we didn’t win a ring his senior year.
The Wizards seem content to keep Otto Porter’s ridiculous contract. They had Oubre on the cheap and were giving him big minutes here and there. Puzzling for sure but looks like that whole organization is a mess as well. I agree he won’t be a Sun past this year. I hope a playoff team picks him up
@approxinfinity If you read what I actually wrote, I’m not addressing what he did (founder and sole employee, apparently). I was addressing the type of structure, not the activities, and the comments that seem to find it nefarious that the conservative donors are not disclosed. Planned Parenthood is also a dark money group.
Most immigration to the U.S. actually comes from Asia now - primarily India and China, but other places as well.
Many of the “illegal” immigrants in the country were actually once “legal” immigrants. They are now here because they have either overstayed their work or student visa, or have not met the conditions to have their visa renewed.
Asylum seekers are a different category than regular immigrants. Lumping them together is lazy because they come to this country under different programs and must meet different requirements.
I’m not going to try to dive into all of the politics of it because immigration and asylum are complex things.
I will note that just because Democrats don’t support a border wall doesn’t mean open borders. Did you know that Mexico actually has had a negative immigration rate with the U.S. over the past few years. That means more people went from the U.S. to Mexico than from Mexico to the U.S.
Just a few items to think about while you sit on the couch in a food coma over the next few days.
I am very familiar with Government issued offcial ID card; in most of Latin America it is called Carnet de Identidad and it is required to do any paperwork with the government. Unfortunately, every time this has been proposed in this country it has been opposed…by liberals…that claim big government is trying to keep track of everybody. if you think this will ever be implemented in this country you are absolutely dreaming. BTW, all this countries that have the government issued ID have even bigger problems with vote fraud so it is not the solution.
Having to show proof of identity such as a valid license or birth certificate is not not that much of a burden and a samll price to have clean elections. We have to present proof of identity to buy cigarettes or liquor, legally drive, see certain movies or apply for government benefits and no one seems to have a problem with it; it becomes a problem when you want people that cannot prove they can legally do it to actually vote. Do you know the Lakeland Shooter registered to vote from jail, gave the jail address as his address and was legally registered? Our system is broken because there is a vested interest to have ineligible people vote…it is really that simple and fraud is rampant.
