    Every time the team does anything, Amy Adams Strunk is right in the middle of it. We no longer have an absentee owner. She shows up at all the big signings. She shows up at the free hotdog giveaways. She shows up at the fan parties on the road. She’s becoming a fixture at all things Titans. And all things Titans have continually improved since she took over. I have praised her and I have criticized her. My most recent criticism was most definitely wrong. I said her hiring Mularkey put the team in a bad situation when it was time to move on. I concluded the owner never should have picked the HC before the GM. Mularkey did a great interim coaching job. If he had failed the blame would have gone to her, not JRob. Since AAS came into the picture, the team has gone from losing and having the new franchise QB beat to death weekly to two winning seasons, plus a playoff win. I have been quick to give JRob all the credit, but some real positive team changes started before his arrival. We now have a very capable GM, a modern era coaching staff and a lot of talented football players. And the team has become much more fan friendly. Good Job AAS!!

    Had someone use what I assume was an EBT card the other day. (special process by the cashier) Had a number of coupons. Bought meat that was on clearance only, bread, canned goods, produce and the like. Only thing that was much of a treat for them was a pack of gum, some chips (this was before the Super Bowl) and a 2 liter of ginger ale. After seeing the cashier zero out almost everything except .39 cents or so (tax on some non-grocery item), I didn't feel frustration that someone was basically getting free food. I felt a sense of relief that I don't have to worry about being hungry or not making ends meet. The look on their face wasn't that of someone that just pulled one over on the state and government, it was someone who was ashamed. (truly). I'm sure that some people take advantage of these programs. Some may not bat an eye about using assistance. However I believe that it's far more likely that a good deal of people need these programs and don't feel particularly good about their circumstances.

    Gee, it's almost like Trump has been lying about every single thing he's been accused of. In fact, going off odds you be pretty safe just assuming that whatever comes out out of his mouth is pure fabrication or at the very least said with the motive of misleading the audience as to his actual intent. I have seen some of the most intricate walking back in this thread I can ever remember. From claiming the Russians never hacked the DNC, to claiming the Russians couldn't be the source for the wiki leaks, to claiming the Trump campaign never met with any Russians ever, to claiming Comey was fired just for how he was too hard on Hillary, to claiming Trump Jr. never met with Russians, and then it was just with a lawyer who tricked him, to then it was a set up meeting but it was only to talk about adoptions, to okay it was a set up meeting with an intelligence agent in order to get dirt on Clinton in exchange for lifting the Magnitsky act but we didn't actually go through with it. You know because you can trust us! Manafort, Flynn.... Jesus it goes on and on. So fucking funny to watch you dumbasses squirm as you get called out for your unpatriotic defense of this monster.

    Trump Drops The Hammer On Food Stamps

    I find it funny. Conservatives (I'm generalizing here) typically claim to be Christians, but nothing is more evident than the fact that their belief system is founded on total classist disdain for the poor. The food stamp program has always been a favorite target for them--they take pleasure in controlling what the poor eat because it makes them feel powerful and better. After all, it's easy to bag on the lazy and entitled poor--they don't deserve Christian goodness. What's the average monthly benefit for food stamp users? $120, $130? It's sickening. I can't really empathize with this kind of worldview anymore. So bitter and distrustful--that you are the victim and the poor are the criminal. The American idea has rotted out. Anyone who claims this country was "founded on Christian values" should be laughed out of existence. We're attacking education, affordable housing, food for the poor--the basics of society. Meanwhile, they intellectually masturbate over things like "God's Not Dead" and the "war on christmas" and the "forgotten people of this country"--comfortable victims. I am grateful every day that I don't have a small, cruel, and pathetic mindset like TennesseeTuxedo and his ilk. When your generation is dead, history is going to look on you shamefully. LA times column has a nice take on it: http://www.latimes.com/business/hiltzik/la-fi-hiltzik-food-stamps-20180213-story.html

    LOL. I don't have the patience to even type out how stupid this shit is anymore. Fusion GPS is an American Firm. Just silly stuff here. Steele wasn't a foreign adversary. They were digging dirt up on the Russians, not offering political favors for their help. You guys swear the Russians didn't hack the DNC, didn't give the info to wikileaks, didn't meet with Trump Jr. to get dirt, didn't meet with Flynn to try to undermine the sanctions, blah blah blah blah blah. It's fucking tired. You're wrong. You've been wrong every step of the way. These guys are dirty up to their eyeballs and you can't see it and I refuse to waste my night laying it out again and again because you can't come to terms with reality. More people are going to jail. Trump's campaign 4, Russian Conspirators 18. Hillary's campaign 0 Fusion GPS 0 Obama Administration 0 DOJ employees 0

    Mueller and grand jury indict 13 Russians

    You obviously didn't read the indictment, and if you did, you didn't understand it. They supported the two outsider candidates during the primary, both Bernie and Trump. They were looking for the most divisive candidates. During the general election, they very clearly supported Trump and sought to discredit Clinton.

    I'll watch this stuff all day over the idiot ex-players on ESPN or NFL Network. I wish they'd stop dumbing down everything and spend more time educating fans on how the game works. I think there is a big market for this type of analysis -- people want to know more about how the game works, and the more fans understand the game, the more into the sport people get.

    Let's see here: 17 accusations of Sexual assault and caught on video bragging about it. 1992 Beauty Pagent, Trump is sued for sexual assault, breach of contract, and discrimination 1973 Trump and his father sued for housing discrimination Fined 200,000 dollars for keeping black employees away from his casino tables Linked to the NY Mob in an investigative journalism piece and then later questioned about it in court but never actually convicted. Cohn, Trump's current Lawyer also happened to represent Tony Salerno. Funny coincidence. Forced to settle a 25 million dollar lawsuit for defrauding students at Trump university. In the lawsuit were also allegations of students being pressured to sign statements against their will, intimidating plaintiffs with warrantless counter lawsuits that they couldn't afford to defend and launching an attack on the Judge to pressure him into giving a more favorable ruling. In the 80's forced to settle with tenenants in a rent controlled building near central park. Trump tried to force them out so that he could change the building and charge higher rent. He tried to move in homeless people, refused to make repairs, tried to knock down walls etc to force them out until the court ordered him to stop. Forced into bankruptcy four different times due to shady business practices. For example said he could build casino without using junk bonds to secure a better bid, then used junk bonds, went bankrupt and left everyone else on the hook. Estimated to have at one point been in up to 1.8 billion dollars worth of debt. No wonder he's beholden to the Mob and Russia! In 1991 Trump was found guilty of conspiring to avoid paying union wages after he brought in 200 undocumented Polish workers to build his tower, paid them next to nothing, worked them beyond what was allowed by law, and then when they complained about back pay tried to intimidate them and threaten them with deportation. Ivana Trump accused him of marital rape even though she later clarified those comments. Not convincingly.... Trump's defense was that you can't rape your wife. Awesome. In the 90's fined by the gaming commission 30,000 for illegal money lending, 250,000 for illegally lobbying against a Native American competing casino, and another 450,000 for buying 9 luxury cars with illegal funds. In 1987 fined 750,000 by the Federal Trade Commission for violating Anti-Trust Laws In the mid 2000's connected to criminal developers and forced to settle yet another lawsuit for three separate instances in Florida, Mexico, and New York In 2016 Trump's Campaign Advisor, Lewendowski was arrested for Battery after pushing a Breitbart reporter out of his way. Both him and Trump denied it and attacked the character of the woman, though later video evidence proved that it happened the way the woman described and an arrest was made. In 2006, Trump sued an author for libel after he wrote a book about him claiming he was worth closer to 150 million rather than the billion he claimed. When the lawsuit was thrown out, the depositions were combed and there were more than 30 instances found where Trump was forced to admit he lied during his original statement. From the 1980s until present there have been more than 200 allegations of Trump withholding money on contracts to small businesses for buildings. It's a strong pattern that he gets the work done, get's his piece of the profits and delays paying for the work as long as possible in hopes that they will either give up or go away after failing to pay their debts. His Hotel in Washington currently has more than 5 million in liens placed against it. Trump Institute... separate from Trump University was a similar get rich quick scam offering Business advice. The people who ran the business were serial con artists, the text books were plagerized, and the business was forced into bankruptsy when those people had to go to court for all the lawsuits and criminal investigations. In 2016 Trump broke FEC campaign finance rules when he used campaign funds to buy his own book and funnel the money back to himself. The Trump foundation has been accused of instead of being a charity being a convenient way to funnel money. Trump Foundation gave an illegal gift of 25,000 dollars to AG Pam Bondi's campaign in Florida just days before squashed yet another investigation into Trump University and Trump Institute. He also used 258,000 dollars from the foundation, illegally, to settle lawsuits. He has also been accused of using the foundation to illegally dodge taxes. It's currently under investigation by the NY AG and will probably be forced to close once that investigation runs it's course due to all the illicit dealings. I didn't mention any of the Scandals since Trump has won the White House. Russia, The obstruction, Hiring his family to decide national policy, abuse scandals, security clearance scandals, inappropriate use of influence, unethical conflicts of interest, and the list just keeps on growing. So, tell me more about this corrupt Deep State and how Trump is going to clean up Washington. You know because he was the lesser evil over the oh so corrupt Hillary Clinton who was cleared of all charges.

Basically Obama learns Russia meddling in elections, Trump then wins, US Informs Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak they are kicking out Russians and he's pissed, leaves and calls, guess who, Mike Flynn. FBI listens to call, Flynn says not to worry they'll fix it when in office. Obama asks intelligence whether or not they should brief incoming admin on everything pertaining to Russia since they are under investigation. Gonna be fun to see what all Flynn has told Mueller. So obviously guilty

    Agree. It's the craziest thing. Trump supporters will disregard intelligence reports, Indictments, and plea bargains as nothing to see. Susan Rice sending an email reminder to herself, it's a conspiracy leading to Obama. I can understand an egomaniac like Trump doesn't want to acknowledge he received unwanted assistance from the Russians because it would mean he had help winning an election. For his supporters to just disregard every shred of evidence that the Russians meddled in our election without even considering the possibility makes no damn sense.

    This isn't an adequate defense. If people held these moral convictions as close to their heart as they claim, they simply wouldn't have voted. It's that simple. They chose political victory over their morals and in doing so made it impossible to shame or look down on others who do similarly. It makes no sense that these peoples' convictions are strong enough to fight a court battle over baking some gay guys a cake but not strong enough to resist voting for a complete degenerate to the highest office in the world. Seems pretty clear to me that these people are picking and choosing when to be principled. As much ridicule as they get, the people on the left who refused to vote for the lesser of two evils are far more principled yet the right thinks of them as uncivilized heathens.

    Trump Drops The Hammer On Food Stamps

    The entire nation lives on highly processed food. The president famously and indisputably has a horrific diet based primarily on fast food. Your post conveys your dehumanizing attitude, which decontextualizes poor people so you can cast bush league legislation like this as "saving them from themselves."

    Trump Drops The Hammer On Food Stamps

    MLK spoke about something quite similar to this during his "drum major instinct" speech. "The other day I was saying, I always try to do a little converting when I'm in jail. And when we were in jail in Birmingham the other day, the white wardens and all enjoyed coming around the cell to talk about the race problem. And they were showing us where we were so wrong demonstrating. And they were showing us where segregation was so right. And they were showing us where intermarriage was so wrong. So I would get to preaching, and we would get to talking—calmly, because they wanted to talk about it. And then we got down one day to the point—that was the second or third day—to talk about where they lived, and how much they were earning. And when those brothers told me what they were earning, I said, "Now, you know what? You ought to be marching with us. You're just as poor as Negroes." And I said, "You are put in the position of supporting your oppressor, because through prejudice and blindness, you fail to see that the same forces that oppress Negroes in American society oppress poor white people. And all you are living on is the satisfaction of your skin being white, and the drum major instinct of thinking that you are somebody big because you are white. And you're so poor you can't send your children to school. You ought to be out here marching with every one of us every time we have a march." Now that's a fact. That the poor white has been put into this position, where through blindness and prejudice, he is forced to support his oppressors. And the only thing he has going for him is the false feeling that he’s superior because his skin is white—and can't hardly eat and make his ends meet week in and week out. And not only does this thing go into the racial struggle, it goes into the struggle between nations. And I would submit to you this morning that what is wrong in the world today is that the nations of the world are engaged in a bitter, colossal contest for supremacy."

    Of course you don't offer him a deal right now after the year he just had. If you're the agent for Mariota you also don't even begin to consider a contract right now. It's in neither's parties interest to do a deal right now. You give him the 5th year option this march and let him play out all of 2018 to make sure he improves and also stays healthy. With his injury history he's got to stop missing portions of the season and/or playing injured. Then you franchise him in 2020 if he doesn't show enough or stay healthy. If he puts together a great 2018 you then talk about an extension, if there are questions you franchise him.

    Dan Orlovsky draws McFleur plays

    Matthews was apparently a horrible OL coach. The main changes to the offense IMO is we will have easier passes for Mariota. Heck, I was watching a Steelers game yesterday against the Patriots and was dumb founded how often Big Ben just dumped the ball off on short passes (RB, TE and WRs). It is how the NFL passing offenses work. High %, less chance of a sack, penalty and occasionally a guy breaks off a tackle for a bigger gain. Then when you do go down field you have set the defense up. Same watching Brady and the Pats offense. The RBs and TEs in both those offense were a huge part of the passing game. Not decoys. Real targets. Then you watch the Titans and everything was so much more difficult. Mariota is actually one heck of a QB. He will look spectacular in a properly designed offense. Using the passing game a little more also provides better opportunities to run the ball. You spread the defense out, avoid stacked fronts. Common sense really. Not to mention you have to give the QB plenty of dump off options if and when the pass rush/ or blitz brings pressure.
