Hangin' at the Al / Poll: Can MU Regain Blue Blood Status

MU was once a college basketball blue blood. Arguably, we were the consensus Number 2 program of the Era. Clearly we were the non UCLA team no one ever wanted to play.

Although , we have fallen from those lofty levels, I believe we have  the fundamentals in place to make a charge back up the mountain. Our athletic department is very solid and provides a quality base line to build off of.  The school is willing to spend the resources on facilities and everything necessary to compete.  We are in a top tier conference. So the only thing left is the high level winning tradition  for 15 years and a Hall of Fame level coach.

Nice try at revisionist history. The reality is the US gave recognition to the Kingdom of Hawaii which ultimately led to countries all over the world recognizing Hawaii. This was done to protect American Interests versus European interests at the time.  Over time there were various internecine  battles among the Hawaiians which led to a circumstance which threatened  to disenfranchise the US Interests.  The US then flip flopped back and forth on various Hawaiian regime  change . Recognizing that they could not sustain independent status any longer the Hawaiians moved toward annexation.  Today the decedents of the original  Hawaiian benefit from a very large educational trust created by those original business interests. No ones culture or way of life was changed.

So again, a bunch of foreign businessmen held a monarch at gunpoint and forced him to sign a constitution that transferred all of the voting rights away from native Hawaiians to the foreign plantation owners. But its okay because it protected American interests over European interests.

That sounds like the same garbage argument as "Slavery was actually great for black people, if we didn't do it, they would be stuck in Africa right now!"

Sorry couldn't let you get away with both sides of the argument..again.

Please answer one question. Then I will be done with you on this one.

As you have told us...we are NEVER going back to the MECCA.
If we are NEVER going back to the MECCA how can going back to the MECCA be a viable option?

That is where I'm stuck.
Please answer that one for me.

I've answered this 8 times at this point. Been the same answer every time.

I think we are never going back to the Mecca because the Bucks also need us to fill those dates and will negotiate with us until a deal is met that is acceptable to both sides. In addition, I know that because the Mecca (or building an on campus arena) is there, the Bucks can't set the price at a point that is so high that it would actually be better for Marquette to go with a different option. Because if they did and refused to negotiate down, Marquette would walk. Now again, because the Bucks also need us to fill those dates more than they need to squeeze every last dollar out of his (at least I think that's true) it is my belief that the Bucks and Marquette will always be able to find a deal where the price at the new stadium doesn't exceed whatever the magic number is that would make it better for Marquette to go with a different option.....which is called leverage. Which is what this conversation was about when you scoffed at the idea of the Mecca being used as leverage.

To put it in shorter terms, I think we are never going back because I don't think the Bucks are stupid. But if the Bucks end up being stupid Marquette would go back. I can't imagine a world where the Bucks are that stupid. (Cue the jokes about trading Dirk Nowitzki or whatever just went on with their GM search)

Hundreds of those treasonous pieces of garbage are buried in Arlington National Cemetery. How many of them were charged, convicted and executed? Let's do it 162 years later - sounds fair to me!

I really do not want to enter this debate.  But, they did commit treason.  They were then pardoned by President Johnson. Many were required to pledge an Oath to the US to obtain the pardon.

There is no debate on whether they committed treason or not.

Are you questioning whether they actually took up arms against the United States?  Talk about trying to rewrite history…
