    Monument Bet

    Just wanted to have this in its own thread

    Strug bets Julio that a monument of our founding fathers will be removed or substantially altered by March 1, 2019.

    Terms: If Sturg wins, Julio must watch 2 hours of Ron Paul clips of Sturg's choice

    If Julio wins, Sturg must leave the politics board for a year

    I know the applause in the echo chamber must be extremely loud ... but damn.

    Do you think Ohio should have had more say in the name than Alaska itself? I know the temptation to burn 57 in your respective echo chamber is pretty high, but damn if you didn't single out what's less a controversy or "incident" and more an example of petty Ohio legislators employing procedural tricks to maintain the memory of a native son.

    57 said the change was "roundly applauded" - that's simply inaccurate.

    My personal opinion here isn't relevant, but since you asked, no, I don't think Ohio should have had 'more say' than Alaska, but that's not the issue. The controversy here is/was the federal proclamation.

    are you really reduced to sturging every thing I write.

    Perhaps yu can tell us all how it was described in the South Korean papers or regale us for using the wrong resource where the term "roundly applauded" was used.

    I would bet Washington state and Oregon were uber in favor and pretty sure Massachusetts was on board.
    Mississippi, West Virginia and Alabama couldn't care --- on that basis I understand your confusion

    1) Stop bloviating, start reading.

    But yeah, "outside of Ohio" ... stick with that.

    2) 'Regale us' for using the wrong resource? What does that mean?

    3) So should I be thanking you for immolating your own point here?

    4) As an aside, do they syndicate the Korean Times or Joongang Daily reports on Daily Beast? Or are they too busy pumping you little guys full of fake piss and vinegar about Puerto Rico being Trump's Katrina?

    did you know one of those links has an Adam and Eve ad ?

    I think the one from Arizona - because I immediately dismissed it.

    57, you do know that ads are targeted, right?

    Cookies and all that.

    And no, not that kind of sugar. Focus grasshopper.

    You're right, your personal gloss is immaterial; sorry for asking.

    But no: the issue is not / was not federal proclamation. It was a handful of cranky Ohioans mad that a favorite son was being effaced from another state's mountain (in a federally-administered national park, no less). There are plenty of viable examples of crusades against federal overreach; but you're overreaching here, trying to shoehorn this patently silly example.
