I think my comment hit a touchy spot, which it was designed to do and they decided I wasn't the type of guy they want posting there.

I agree about comments. People say a lot more in an anonymous comment section than they do in person. I used to post at Politico but, they changed it to where your real name appears and I stopped commenting after that.

Do you just re-post every Breitbart article now? Is that your primary news source?

NBA Takes Big Ticket Price Hit on All-Star Weekend, After Shunning NC Over Bathroom Law
As of Friday morning, the cheapest available seat for Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game at the Smoothie King Center cost $184, according to data compiled by TicketIQ, a resale market ticket aggregator. That number is a 71% decrease from last year in Toronto, when the cheapest ticket on the Friday before the game cost $644. The plunge may not be over -- the price of the cheapest seat in 2014, when New Orleans last hosted the All-Star Game, fell 39% between Friday and tip-off on Sunday.

Yeah I'm sure that's exactly the reason prices fell. Because people were scared if they went to the game a huge dick would magically appear in their bathroom stall to haunt them

Yeah, this seems like a stretch.
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

Despite what our piece of s*** orangutan thinks, not everything is about ratings. I would bet he doesn't look at this as "backfiring."

And you didn't answer his question
