But I would never vote for a politician based on his stance about the sanctions.
Pathetic are the people who do.
Sad to say there are many single issue voters.
Oh man. This shamrock shake I just picked up kicks total freaking ass right now!

? The OP was TIC and then I looked him up and started bashing him for that reason. Wasn't even really serious about either one. The OP was 5 words... Then I bashed him for being a republican on top of it... Anyway. ttyl. Going to Pamelas for brunch... Then to the aquarium. No time for this petty BS.
WE ARE! And we will always be...
I've noticed you are never serious when someone points out the things you actually said.
Have fun at the aquarium.
If winning was easy even losers would do it.
Umm, me who is of right mind. At least they haven't committed me to the asylum just yet.
As I stated earlier in this thread, you're wasting your time breaching the scandal topic with federal politicians.

Please remind me next November to consult you on what issues I should base my votes on. I've seen far flimsier reasons people vote for or against a candidate in my time. At least this reason tangibly affects the poster.

That is a classic no-response response. What a politically correct jellyfish!
Maybe I'll give him a no-vote vote come next election.
Pathetic are the people that think it matters whether capital gains are taxed at 28% or 15% or whether we should debase our fiat "money" at an annual rate of 10% or 20% annually, and then call others pathetic for not caring which side "wins" the argument. His stance on the sanctions is as relevant as on any issue, especially if you can extrapolate that to his stance on government's role in subjects like enforcing contracts. If I was still a PA resident this would matter a lot to me.
I'm confused by this comment. is it not a politician that is SUING the NCAA to get the sanctions completely tossed? is is not a politician that wrote a bill specifically to force the NCA to keep the fine money in the state? was it not politicians that just grilled Erickson on the Freeh report and the NCAA? wasn't it a politician that wrote a letter asking the NCAA to reinstate the 40 scholarships?
From my seat it seem that their are a number of politicians not only involved, but leading the charge.
Step by Step illustration:
1. Did we get screwed by NCAA and Emmert?
2. Do we care about our University's reputation and the unjust punishment that was meted out?
3. Do we feel we have a right to some advocacy?
4. Do we have people we call representatives that are supposed to "represent" us
5. When they show that they couldn't care less about our plight and they reveal that they haven't even bothered to inform themselves about what has transpired is that OK with you?
Uh the matter of taxing on capital gains is an economic growth argument. How one can try to put this issue as the OP is beyond belief…but going on your argument…
If a cut on capital gains tax is enforced, yes the richer have more money, you know what they do with that? Since they got in their position primarily focusing on a profit based industry they INVEST IN NEW IDEAS/TECHNOLOGY in order to make the next significant profit. Why? Because they are money hungry people who want to make a profit, well guess what, we live in a capitalist society which encourages that. So if you are trying to argue that economic growth won't happen with the investment of what, wealthy business owners who what, I'm sure invested years of hard work and education to be where they are, and are going to continue to make a profit, but as well as grow the ECONOMY in AMERiCA, then please, give me your argument.
Now, if you are against economic growth, China and North Korea are looking for new residents. Globalization and economic growth are inevitable, and is going to happen to matter what. If we choose to ignore it and put it off to the side, well, America won't be the country we have become accustomed to.
But you know what is funny, we are working on a free trade agreement with the EU, so globalization and trade is only going to strengthen, so sorry, the world is evolving and so is America.
The notion, that you argue that Penn States sanctions, the school I am going to be a soon graduate of in Economics, is as important as the current budget issues, unemployment, education spending in primary schools, free trade, health care and finally immigration as well as countless issues other is HISTORICAL!
Yes they are, and if someone votes for them specifically because of that then that is sad. They are doing that because of votes, and not spending their time in what REALLY matters in The United States of America.
In which the Penn State sanctions is probably in the low 10,000's of important issues.
If you think Toomey actually wrote that you are kidding yourself. That is a canned response by whatever low-level staff member is tasked with responding to constituent correspondence. It is probably a response crafted when the sanctions first came out and probably took it's cue from what Corbett initially said. It sounds like the staffer confused Corbett's lawsuit for the one filled by Corman.
You overestimate politicians my friend...:)
Pretty clear he never even read the Paterno's report .... Doubt he even knows it exists..
Ya, i'd rather have my Senator reading legislative issues…Seriously people?
I agree, his stance on government enforcement of contracts (in this case between the NCAA and its member organizations) is historical, so why are you dismissing those who take an interest in it as pathetic?
Either way, I'm glad to see that at the ripe age of 22 you've completely figured out everything there is to know about economics. Who needs to read Mises or Keyenes when we have PSU undergrads to assert GOP "free trade" talking points as fact?
It's also funny that you read my three-sentence post and decided I'm a high tax, big government guy even though I openly mocked fiat "money" and currency debasement. You should read more and lecture less.
It was 5 words... Get a life
Omg, what is going on in this thread! Jeez, come on guys.. Cant we all just get along and play nice...
I am far more concerned with about a million other things relating to the future of Pennsylvania than PSU football's bowl ban.
If one decides that the matter at hand has a greater impact upon his/her life than hundreds of other issues, then I cannot help but question your reasoning. Yea everything about this sucks but in the grand scheme of things the sanctions are trivial and have really no personal impact, especially when (I assume) no one her is culpable for what transpired. I will concern myself with the issues that actually affect me, not scholarship limits.
