    Rockets have not won (or will not win) a title because FernTits supports Trump, says @HardenVolumeOne :D

    (But the Lakers or Heat might. :oops:)

    Remember when you could get punched in the mouth for asking who you voted for? It's none of mine or your damn business who someone votes for.

    By law it's our business who you donate to.

    This is a good thing.

    Why can't you just vote on how you feel instead of being so easily motivated by what someone else does?

    This is that whole "Liberals were mean to me so I'm going to vote Republican!" thing?

    What does this mean? The "someone else" you are referring to are the people running for office and those in support of them. So of course I'm going to be motivated by what they do if they are who I'm voting on.

    Why would I vote for the people expressing the extremism that I oppose?

    I think both of us have expressed our opinions!

    For a relationship to remain as Living Spirit, one of the best ingredients to put into the mix is truth. On some gut level, below the thinking mind, we know there is more to our being than the masks that hide our true selves. I have struggled in the search but remain curious enough to continue mining. It’s as if we are born into space suits that allow us to function here. We spend many years learning how to operate the suit and overlook what we truly are inside. Most people forget that they were born into the suit and that they are not actually the suit. Today, even only for a moment, I hope we remember.

    Never mind that was @toycen - whatever. Anyway, you're still forbidden from voting for Democrats by my orders.

    Ah, so you're someone that believes the current batch of Dems are 'extremists' so yeah, there isn't much to continue with here, especially not in this forum.

    Did you actually think of this response.

    I think I heard something similar at a Tony Robbins seminar.

    It'll be interesting when and if the day comes that free agents want to know the political contributions owners are making and then publicly state that it played a role in what team they signed with. Show me the money becomes show me where your money is going.

    Some are socialists, Others are just going along with them. So in a way those gutless bast***s are worse than the socialists.

    At this point sports will officially be in the toilet.

    If a FA asks an owner this, the owner has every right to say there's the door, dont let it hit you in the a** on the way out. Then the owner will get on the phone and let other owners know what this FA is all about and the other owners that may agree with the FA's political views may sign the FA but at far less money than he would've gotten without asking for owners political views.

    Yep all true, just like players can say I'm not playing for someone that financially supports white supremacy and then all the other players can decide whether they want to play for owners who financially support white supremacy. Then maybe that owner can't sign any great players and then the value of his franchise is diminished because he can't win anything. Then the union can get involved next time their labor contract is up. That's the way it goes.

    If that was the case, Ballmer will swoop up players that conservative owners don't want, and DeVos will pick up players that liberal owners don't want.

    In the end, Kyrie Irving will be the right one. If players want a league where all of the decision makers, all of the people writing checks agree with them, listen to Kyrie and start your own league.

    Way to diminish the thought. Again you are free to articulate whatever thoughts you have just like me.

    There is enough happening in the world without a clutchfans member freaking out about someone else’s opinions on things.

    Take a deep breath and relax. There are better things to focus your efforts on.
