    Who trades for Antonio Brown?

    Sports Illustrated did a long-form write up on AB that's pretty interesting as well. https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/09/16/antonio-brown-new-england-patriots-lawsuits-accusations-sexual-midconduct-assault

    It absolutely did. Someone paid off a few hundred grand right before Kavanaugh was nominated. Justice Kennedy's son was part of the Deutche Bank that loaned Trump money when no one else would- loans that were co-signed by Russian oligarchs as well. They're all rotten.

    It’s just an opinion piece but I’m glad that nuclear power is getting some attention. https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2019/09/17/2020-democrat-president-climate-change-andrew-yang-nuclear-power-column/2342031001/ Also.... What really troubles me about Kavanaugh (other than him seemingly being a chode) is that the GOP goes to such lengths to protect him. Theoretically... He get a impeached. Trump still is filling that seat, so why fight to the death over Kavanaugh ? Oh... right.... because of Trumps known “short list” of nominees for the SCOTUS he Brett was the swampiest most corrupt piece of trash available. I guarantee his appointment came about through back door channels to fulfill or receive a favor down the line.

    I have read the report, yes. Im not sure you're looking at the correct report. The sources are at the end here- 128 of them. This is part 1. http://doctorpatientrightsproject.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Access-Denied_How-Utilization-Management-Protocols-Can-Block-Access-to-Life-Saving-Treatments.pdf Part 2 is here. 123 sources listed on this one- https://doctorpatientrightsproject.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Marathon_DPRP_Access-Denied-2_NOV2018_FINAL.pdf We are talking mainly- at least we are concerned mainly- about people with chronic conditions. Not people who go in for an antibiotic and get denied once every four months when they get sick- though that is annoying- people who need medicine on a daily basis. Secondly, the 1 in 10 claim is for medical screenings- preventive care- not meds in general. This is absolutely not a controversial subject. 90% of doctors polled agreed with principal points of the study. I've honestly never heard anyone take the insurance's side on this one except the insurance company. The insurance wants to cover the cheaper drugs to save money- okay, fine. But there are a lot of times a reason why the doctor wants the patient on a specific medication, and the insurance, in essence, overrides the doctor by saying either A) this won't be covered or B) we need to try these 5 other alternatives first and then maybe we'll let you try this one. The insurance company is not staffed by medical professionals and their opinion is not valid towards what a patient needs for treatment.

    Puhlease, no one except Republicans give a fuck about manufactured outrage over a dude who is clearly a slimebag and absolutely did do what Ford is accusing him of. The Right does not care they stole a SC seat from Merrick Garland. The right does not care they used 9/11 as a decoy to get the Dems out so they could ram through a veto to steal Medicare from thousands of people. The right does not care that Brett Kavanaugh is not beyond reproach, is a complete sleazebag, or anything. All they care about is that he is politically on their side. People like McConnell getting all up in arms over Kavanaugh accusations doesn't move my sympathy meter one inch. Mitch is also outraged over vaping killing six people and not cigarettes killing tens of thousands. Or guns killing tens of thousands. Or any number of election security bills he refuses to even let hit the floor. The hypocrisy of the GOP is fucking hilarious. Trump has what, 22 people who have accused him of sexual assault? Kavanaugh has like 8. There is no reason for these women to come forward and lie about this. They get lambasted by people on the right. Sure maybe a couple hangers on tried to get their moment in the spotlight, but where is this much smoke, there is fire. Im not saying the guy belongs in jail unless we can prove it beyond a reasonable doubt, but he absolutely should not be a SC justice.

    Did you see the statement they NYT made about the "victims"? The friends that was there allegedly said she doesn't remember anything that lady is saying. And she refused to be interviewed so formal charges could be brought up, and won't talk to anyone? ALL of the friends whom she cited as coroborating witness to a person says they don't recall the incident.

    Warren is already getting Hillary's super delagates. She's already been annointed. This primary process is a total farce. We don't live in a democratic society.

    Razor's QB Rankings 2019

    Early season qb rankings are the best.
  14. lets try this again before week 3 since half the place had Saints or Colts in the big one. and since you got rid of my thread of predictions and playoff favorites. here it is again. Packers, Niners, Bucs, Redskins, Lions, Bears Patriots,Chiefs,Browns,Colts,Steelers, Ravens ( I dont remember if I had Ravens the first time but oh well ,what ever) SB vs I said a month ago Saints wouldnt be involved. I said Brees would injured. welp...... Dwayne Haskins , he'll replace Keenum during the week or in the Monday night game next week, I think. if i'm understanding this numerology and birthday stuff, I'm calling they beat Pats in Washington on 10/6. Brady and the Pats have lost every time 6/10 falls on a Sunday, but once. 4 times (2 times for Brady 2002,2013) Oct 6, 1974= they won that game vs the Baltimore Colts.. for what ever reason, the Pats have been allowed to own the Colts, 52-29 lifetime. 1-4 on Oct. 6th. Brady wasnt involved in that 1974 win,The game isnt vs the Colts. so I like my chances since he's lost twice. they call Brady the GOAT but he doesnt get to own that name per football reference. These are his nicknames (TB12, Tom Terrific, Touchdown Tom, The Pharaoh, Comeback Kid or Sir) but people refer to him as the Goat. Something else famous happened on "October 6, 1945". Billy Goat Tavern owner William Sianis. he's the one who got kicked out by the Cubs and cursed the team because he couldnt stay at the game with his goat. so, the Goat keeps losing on Oct 6th. also, Oct 6 1993, thats the Day Jordan retired the first time after 3 championships. but of course its all just coincidence ,right? all these pivotal moments in sports on Oct 6. if i'm wrong, well, who gives a fuck. Its just sports. I know its a sham regardless. It wont hurt me. ok, so who are your teams since the Saints are dust..like they always have been since 60s anyway. by the way, the Saints are currently 9-11, in their playoff history.lol no wonder theyre dust now.

  18. the steelers pick might actually be kinda high like the dolphins will pick 1st overall... like 12th overall... and then like 20th. You thought the Raiders had an exciting setup. This might be the most epic draft class for a team ever.
  19. Even if the Seahawks offered a first rounder I'd rather have the Steeler's pick.
  20. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001055920/article/dolphins-s-minkah-fitzpatrick-traded-to-steelers Sorry to see that happen to Ben on Sunday especially if he can't make a comeback. And man I woulda loved Minkah Fitzpatrick on our defense. I guess Schneider is too married to his draft picks. Minkah would've helped so much. Kinda surprised to see the Steelers be the ones to make the move for him.

    Yeah I used to believe in Warren, but she has ZERO charisma or original ideas. She would get wrecked imo.

    I don’t think that’s gonna be the only reason either. Watching these debates makes me fear for the next 4 years of our country. Almost seems like destiny that Trump wins again. Biden is losing his mind (literally, I genuinely feel bad for him)... Unless something crazy happens, I think Warren May cruise to this nomination and Trump will obliterate her 1 on 1 I feel. I’m really surprised this is the field they are backing , it’s almost like they want Trump to win lol. I would be shocked if Trump didn’t have something up his sleeve to give him a big bump in the polls.... holding onto this trade war until the election then claiming that we won it bigly ... moving forward on federal marijuana regulation .... mass troop withdrawal... idk what it’s gonna be but it’s coming

    There is actually more than one source, but yes the AMA is one. The NAIC is another, there are a couple others. No bullshit question, did you actually read the report? The reason it took me so long to reply is because I did so I don't waste your time. First and foremost that study says 1 in 10 get denied. So ten percent. Then of those 40 percent appeal. So 60 don't, so there is 6% of claims. Of the 40 that appeal half are denied. So we have the 6 plus the 2 of the 4 denied. So 8% are denied by the study you cited. Then there is the methodology of this study. They literally cite nothing but medical statistics and none of which are about insurance claims. They say things like," Preventative care is up to a 3rd cheaper." Which on its face is true, but tell us what preventable disease. Are we talking heart disease brought on by obesity ? Are we talking lung cancer by a smoker? They have no specifics. So your study undermines what your saying. Do you have a better one? I will read that too. The one you got your statistics from is 31 pages of generalizations and stats they don't cite where they get most.

    If we want to know why Donald Trump will be re-elected (and probably quite easily, at that), it'll be because of things like the NYT running with a clearly false new accusation against Brett Kavanaugh. As a matter of fact, he probably made onto SCOTUS because of all the silly, clearly fake secondary accusations that surfaced after Blasey-Ford's accusation, but she was the only one with an even slightly believable accusation, though it held very little water. People get irritated by shit like this. Shit like this swings moderate voters. Might as well expect 8 years of the Orange Man, at this point.
