Don't be a "Troll?"

Today's Word

In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by trying to start arguments and upset people. They may do this by posting deliberately inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.  The Troll has an opinion on everything, and seemingly waits 24/7 for any chance to air it. Also known as a FPITA.

Dear Maryland:

You're not welcome here.

I despise you for having no discernible football tradition, or a team that is good right now, or even a team that has been good recently--and for still thinking you're hot shit, all that, and God's gift to the B1G, and we should kiss the ground you walk on. That we should be THANKFUL (!) you're here. Hallelujah, just what we wanted--it's a self-righteous East Coast clone of freaking Indiana who has the nerve to think they're gonna walk in here and start churning out wins.  1G 2013 Maryland// How Can We Hate Something We Know Nothing About?

I enjoyed the hell out of that, truly.  The ACC is a sniveling,  passive-aggressive and duplicitous  operation, epitomized by Coach K. Weasel (the Terps own the best record against the Weasel in the ACC, and prolly the nation); so I appreciate stand-up, honest discourse. 

I really look forward then  to Maryland's Big Ten inaugural season next year.  And, despite the charges leveled above, the Terps have won as many National football titles (2)  as have Wisconsin, Indiana,  Northwestern, and Michigan State combined (2).  But as a football conference, both the ACC and the BIG are gridiron bit players anymore.   

  2 BIG 12
  3 PAC-12
As of 2012, the Pac 10 has the most NCAA Division I national championships in basketball with 15 total championships. UCLA, the winningest team in college basketball, won 11 of those (10 by John Wooden). Here is the championship count for the other main conferences:

* ACC - 12
* SEC - 11
* Big Ten - 10
* Big East - 10
* Big 12 - 5
* Big Eight - 4
* Big West - 1

When it comes to basketball however, Maryland has played in a conference that, John Wooden aside, dominates college hoops.  More to the point,take the ACC-Big Ten Challenge (where the ACC's record is 10–3–1).  The Terps are second only to Duke with a record of 10 wins and 4 losses.  I suspect BIG schools will soon develop a real hatred for Maryland, but for cause- after we shatter your dreams on the fields of honor. !  But look, nobody will hate the ACC more than us. So,thanks in advance BIG, for letting us escape. (But, Rutgers??? What were you thinking? )

I think SFI may have borrowed this secret from the Pork Fat Mutiny.  Which prompts this idea.  Dip them in Holy Water, and no  DOJ nor Homeland Security goons can touch them!

Chelsea Clinton Laments: My Great Grandmother Did Not Have Access to Planned Parenthood—America's Leading Abortion Provider

Res Ipsa Loquitor

Mark this day with a red circle.  In the twenty-one years that the Slick Clinton family have occupied the national stage, Chelsea is the first Clinton to agree with the consensus opinion that had her maternal grandmother had access to an abortionist, she would have aborted the beast inside her.

That's right,  Chelsea's mother Hillary would never have been born, and we would have been spared, arguably, the  most evil woman to ever draw breath in our United States. More evil than Sanger, Pelosi, Boxer; et. al.  I am not making this up.

New York, NY (CFAM) — From the stage at the recent Women Deliver conference, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s daughter Chelsea revealed that her much-admired maternal grandmother was the child of unwed teenage parents who “did not have access to services that are so crucial that Planned Parenthood helps provide.”

Chelsea’s grandmother was born of an unintended pregnancy. And new research shows that her family is not alone in treasuring a person who – if Planned Parenthood had been successful – would not have been born.
