    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    After reading all the horrible things drinking will do to you....I gave up reading.

    I really hate those articles that make the point of doing the right thing to begin with.

    I don't think Baylor needs any help in making themselves look bad.

    Man, you got that right.

    When I saw this I realized that someone is lying, or embellishing to say the least.

    Sorry. No resources are available. Even "if a plane falls on your daughter, there's nothing we can do to help you."
    I believe in the process.

    Fixed it. This is the same reason MADD got traction, because the MEN in charge would only slap a wrist instead of dealing out justice. So the women had to band together to get some toughness. I remember well when MADD gained traction and I suspect women will have to band together to stop this abuse. No AD or President or Police Chief seems willing to call a felon and criminal what they are if they can play well. C'mon men, step up to the plate. Yes, I mean you Mr. AD and HC and President. Enough protecting your own interests.
    I do not believe in atheists, therefore they do not exist.

    For the sake of argument, forget the "women" part . . . How about respecting other human beings . . women, men, whatever. Not a fan of how we have become a sue-happy society, but hope the buffoons at Baylor get taken to the cleaner.

    Re: Baylor needs to hire some good lawyers

    From the above ESPN article:
    Baylor University did not investigate a sexual assault report made against two football players for more than two years, despite the school's obligation under federal law to immediately address allegations of sexual violence involving students, Outside the Lines has learned.
    This alone should come with a one year ban on football. It is very hard to determine who is telling the truth in a he said she said sexual assault case. Where the guy is saying it was consensual but the girl is saying rape. But this is not as hard. They broke the law and this isn't hard to determine. An example needs to be made and a one year ban would send a strong message.
    The existence of God isn't determined in the thoughts of man. God exists, no matter what man thinks.

    Respect for others, and especially a man`s respect for a woman, is something that`s taught, primarily by example, beginning at an early age. A person doesn`t learn it at 18, or 22, or 40. IMHO it all goes back to responsible parenting or the lack thereof. Unfortunately, it appears we`re working on at least two generations of children in which the concepts of respect, responsibility for one`s actions, and basic civility are woefully inadequate in far too many of them. Coupled with the elementary and secondary education system of today that no longer emphasizes the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic, much less critical and analytical thinking, I truly fear for our society`s future.

    Kids now days aren't taught respect even on the most basic level. We actually openly and explicitly teach and celebrate disrespect. There's a thread over on the NSB right now talking about younger generations and their behaviors. Look at sports now days (it's a reflection of our society). Kids can't even give the most basic respect to their opponents in victory, scoring a TD, hitting a home run etc. Celebrating with your teammates simply isn't enough. For some reason "we" have to do something toward the opponent to rub salt in the wound, to show them up, to belittle them in front of everyone. It starts with the "little things" and works its way up to the bigger things. It's been discussed on national panels, message boards and personal conversations. The kids who participate in athletics now days who are the cream of the crop are treated different from day one. They aren't held to the same rules as the others. They get special treatment, they get catered to, fawned over and treated like a little god just because he can run real fast, hit a baseball a mile or score a lot of touchdowns. This seed is planted at a young age and grows as he does. He's never been told no, he's never had to follow the same rules as everyone else and this mindset infiltrates every area of his life. So why are we so surprised (considering how he was raised) when he gets a teenager with raging hormones and he pursues a girl, she tells him "no" and he completely ignores it and takes what he wants no matter the cost? It really shouldn't be surprising. Kids now days do not have respectful "fear" of any form of authority. NONE. But hey, "kids will be kids".
