Explaining why Jeanine Añez became the Interim President of Bolivia

On the afternoon of November 10, Evo Morales Ayma announced his resignation as President of the Republic of Bolivia. The streets of the country immediately exploded in celebration and joy, citizens in jubilee after the brave victory of the Protests
However, it would not take long for Bolivians to realize they had a major problem on their hands. With Evo out of power...Who is in charge of Bolivia now?

Sunday, November 10: Morales admits defeat

By Sunday afternoon, Evo already had lost control over Bolivia. His shock troops had been widely outnumbered (in number and organization) by Opposition protests. Police had no intention to suppress the protests, and riots began to follow one after the other, in all regions of the country
After the OAS report, blaming the Electoral Tribunal for serious errors in the vote tall [**] and the “vote of no confidence” given by the Bolivian Army[**], Evo knew his government was, de facto, finished Morales and his VicePresident Alvaro Garcia will resign to their positions, at noon.
(Click Here, For a more detailed explanation on why all these events occurred)

Monday, November 11: Bolivia at the verge of Civil War:

Peacemaking attempts by the Armed Forces and Police begin across the country. [**][**]. Indirectly, benefiting the opposition, who could now protest with armed protection [**]
That same day, around ~ 10,000 Evo supporters reached the Capital, encouraging the People a La Paz to start Civil War[**]. Although they were not properly armed to confront the police or the military, if they get chance to clash with opposition protests, the number of deaths and injured could be catastrophic
Hours later, Senate President Adriana Salvatierra would resign out of solidarity with Morales[**]. The President of the Chamber of Deputies Victor Borda would also resign, denouncing attacks against his property and family [**]
These resignations couldn’t come at a worse time. According to the article 170 of the Bolivian Constitution, the line of succession was: President, Vice President, President of the Senate, President of the Chamber of Deputies.[**] Simply put, the entire chain of command had resigned in less than 24 hours...
The Government and the Military had been left beheaded, something the Army was particular afraid of. Remember, the one reason the Military High Command requested Morales' resignation, was to avoid the increasing risk of Armed Conflict in the country between both factions
And just a day later, thousands Evo’s supporters arrive to the Capital trying to start a Civil War[**] against the Opposition. The chances for the Military to stop the conflict were quickly fading away, and without a President as Commander in Chief, their ability to be deployed was severely limited. Every hour lost was critical, as the tension in the country couldn’t be higher…
Meanwhile, the Opposition also was trying to convince MAS leaders to put a new leader on place. At first, they were okey with them taking over the country, but it wouldn't be long before they realized they had a rather interesting opportunity with the chain of command now broken
One way or another, it was going to be necessary for Congress to sit down and discuss who would rule Bolivia from for the next months, and given the imperative circumstances, it was going to be a quick debate. The Opposition realized they might had a chance to grant the decisive vote, and choose to support Leader more in line to their interests
However, the MAS was not interested (for the moment) in returning to Congress to discuss a new President. On Monday November 11, the party declines to attend their jobs, despite the immense pressures to find a solution, and the inminent risk of a national Crisis…

Tuesday November 12: Jeanine Añez becomes Interim President of Bolivia

On Tuesday morning, the Opposition called again for MAS to resume talks for the succession of Power.[**] To which the MAS insists, the political and security conditions were not enough to discuss the process [**]
The crisis was still raging on, but at the afternoon of November 12, the Opposition found an extraordinary legal precedent that was going completely change the nature of the conflict: The Constitutional Declaration 003/2001
In 2001, the Constitutional Court of Bolivia had established that, on the exceptional circumstance in which the power vacuum cannot be resolved under any formal procedure established in the Constitution, the Presidential succession should be carried out by Constitutional Declaration immediately, and at any cost [**]
It may sounds like an extremly specific and convenient legal precedent. But you must remember Bolivia has historically been a very unstable country. Bolivians have had to go through countless Coups d'état and sudden Resignations.[**] Therefore, having such specific Constitutional Jurisprudence referring to the vacuum in power, was not entirely unexpected
The Opposition called again the Congress to vote, but once again, the MAS did not appear. Without them, the Opposition decided to re-structure the Senate, and granted Jeanine Añez the title of Senate’s President. [**] As the new Speaker of the Senate, she was now officially in the Constitutional chain of command. And that night of November 12, Añez is proclaimed by the Opposition as Interim President of Bolivia.
A couple of hours later, and the Constitutional Court formally ratify Jeanine Añez in office by the aforementioned Constitutional Declaration 003/2001. [**]. Military would soon follow, and recognized her as Commander in Chief[**]
And thus, the succession process was finally complete. Jeanine Añez was now in control of the Government, the Army and the Nation

FAQS

ELI5 the Chain of Command in Bolivia
According to the Bolivian Constitution, the official chain of command only falls into 4 people: President, Vice President, President of the Senate and President of the Chamber of Deputies
As all of them had resigned, the position remained vacant for the Congressman/Congresswoman who was declared President of the Senate or President of the Chamber of Deputies first. The natural candidates for that position were the Vice Presidents of the Senate and the Vice Presidents of the Chamber of Deputies.
By consensus, the chain of command ended it up like this:
A) Why did President of the Senate, Adriana Salvatierra resigned?
The reasons for her resignation is the source of countless conspiracy theories, since she was the most natural option to take the position of Interim President of Bolivia. Conspiracies about her resignation range from Treason, human mistake, threats, or the result of a very convoluted political plan to bring Evo Back... whatever the case is, the resignation of Salvatierra is perhaps one of the greatest mysteries surrounding Bolivia presidential succession
B) Why did the President of the Chamber of Deputies, Victor Borda resigned?
As I explained earlier, violence in Bolivia was escalating rapidly. During the Protest, Borda became known for urging the violence of the MAS shock troops, against anti-Evo manifestations. But once the Protesters began to overpower the government troops, Victor took the whole brunt of it. His house was burned and his brother harassed and humiliated in public
Borda would resign to try to appease the attacks on his person and family. Although it is a sad situation, it is also the classic example of leopardsatemyface ...
C) Why did the 1st VP of the Senate, Raúl Garáfulic resigned?
After the report of the OAS, which blamed the Electoral Tribunal for serious errors in the vote tall, Garáfulic felt betrayed by the Government. He resigned as VP in protest
D) Why did the 1st VP of the Chamber of Deputies, Susana Rivero resigned?
She did not resign, and she should have assumed the position of Interim President. But at that time, the MAS was still playing their weird 5D strategy of not presenting themselves in the Congress.
She herself canceled (on November 12) the meeting of the Chamber of Deputies. With the Chamber closed, Rivero lost the opportunity to become President of the Chamber of Deputies, which was the critical step to become Interim President of Bolivia
E) So Jeanine Añez assumed power by...Luck??
All the real and concrete evidence we have, indicates it was just Luck. Or virtue of Randomness, if you prefer to call it that way
Añez belongs to a minority party, from an unimportant region, and she herself did not have any political leadership at the time. But Añez was the only one who deigned to appear at the Congress, while all the other High Officials of Bolivia had resigned, or flatly refused to attend any meetings
The Constitutional Declaration 003/2001, required the Constitutional Court to solve the Problem of the Vacuum of Power as quickly as possible. True: Añez was the ~ 7th in the chain of command. But, on virtue nobody else wanted to be present at those critical times…they had to choose her
F) Was it legal for the Opposition to re-structure the Senate?
This is undoubtedly the weakest point of the succession process. The opposition took advantage of the lack of the MAS Congressmen to reform Senate’s directive, and bring Jeanine Añez to the Presidency of the Senate
This re-structure was done with only 1/3 of a quorum of the chamber. The opposition argues reforming the Senate did not need quorum but, personally, I cannot attest that was exactly true
G) Was Jeanine Añez's promotion to the Interim Presidency Legal?
Her interim presidency is perfectly Legal. And that’s why it was promptly recognized both by the Constitutional Court, Military as well as all the other institutions of the State, including MAS Party. (Fun fact: Even Russia had to recognize her)
Regardless of the strict legality of reforming the Senate’s directive, the jurisprudence of the Bolivia's Constitutional Court was clear cut: Regardless of whether the transition is done 100% according to Law, at any given point, someone has to be in control of the Government. The Military just coudn't be left alone without a Leader
H) So ... the Opposition did not carry out a Coup??
Unless the Bolivian Opposition has some sort of time machine, that theory is absolute nonsense
While it's possible to argue there might be a plot to bring down Evo Morales, no one could have predicted the entire Bolivian command chain (100% in the hands of MAS party) was going to resign to office too
Furthermore, MAS had (and still has) Complete control of the 2 Congress Chambers. At any given point, MAS could have took Power. But due to their weird 5D Chess strategy, they just refused to choose a successor for Evo
I)But…then why MAS didn’t just choose another president?
That’s the Golden Question everyone wants to understand. Why MAS, having an absolute majority in both Houses, and Holding all the positions of Power in the Country, did not choose a successor for Evo Morales?
The conspiracy theories about this strategy are endless

Reference

Everything you need to know about how to query the bot is described here. Remember that all queries must be written inside double brackets ([[QUERY]]), although we will omit them to avoid clutter.
We will indicate a category with UPPERCASE words, and a keyword with lowercase words. Thus, ADVERSARY could be England, Russia etc, while unique is a keyword and cannot be changed. We will use a vertical bar | for alternative options, possibly together with parentheses that must not be written: (uniques | unique powers) means either unique or unique powers.
The most general query is simply by card/effect name: NAME. This can be the name of a: * Power Card. * Innate Power. * Special Rule. * Fear Card. * Event Card, to be intended as the name of the Main Event for a Choice Event like Years of Little Rain, or one of the main effects for any other Event, like Distant Exploration / Fearful Mobs (they will both return the whole card). * Token or Dahan Event, like Prey on the Unwary or Canny Defense. * Blight Card. * Adversary. * Adversary effect, like Proud & Mighty Capital for England's loss condition or Heavy Mining for Sweden Level 1's effect. * Scenario. * Aspect. * Spirit, in which case a summary that includes its Special Rules, Innate Powers and the names of its Aspects and Unique Powers will be provided.
All content is available, including Jagged Earth and Promo Pack 2.
MemoryBot tolerates many errors/omissions for a name query:
Another type of query is available, which we will call attribute query. This is indicated by a colon : that separates the main entity from their attribute, so the query looks like: (SPIRIT|ADVERSARY): ATTRIBUTE. Here, SPIRIT and ADVERSARY admit all the possible short forms mentioned above.
Spirit attributes can either be a shortcut for multiple queries:
or a way of accessing specific information without recurring to the specific name:
Adversary attributes include:
Finally, Spirits' Innate Powers and Special Rules and all of the Adversary attribute queries are available as normal queries as well. For example, the following are all valid: Downpour innate 2, Volcano special rule, France (1 | level 1 | loss | escalation).
That's all (for now)!

2020 Houston Texans Season Preview

2020 HOUSTON TEXANS SEASON PREVIEW Please don’t take everything I say here too seriously, I did one of these a few years ago and it seemed to be well received so here I am again. This is just one person’s (my) opinion on our outlook for the season and rosteW-L as well as a glance at the rest of the AFCS. With that said, this is going to be pretty detailed so I’ll include a TL;DR for those of you who don’t want to read all of it. I’m not very good at formatting so I apologize in advance.Let’s get started.
OFFSEASON CHANGES:
Coaching: There’s been some shuffle in the coaching staff and people’s roles. I’ll stick to the more notable ones in the interest of time.
Offense- During the combine, BoB announced that Tim Kelly will be the primary play caller this season and will be the one relaying plays to Deshuan in the headset. Tim was the OC last year and his role was largely unknown. This year, he has full reign with new weapons and hopefully new ideas. Also, on the offensive side of the ball, Carl Smith is now an offensive consultant and TJ Yates is our new QB coach. We all know and love TJ as the Bengal killer from his time in the league and his primary role is to work on the technical aspects of QB play with the QB room. Everything else on the offensive side of the ball is pretty much the same as it’s been before.
Defense- Romeo Crennel is no longer our acting DC and has once again stepped into the “Assistant Head Coach” role he took up a few years ago when we gave Vrabel the reins to the defense. In his place steps Anthony Weaver. Another former Texan player now in the coaching realm. Weaver has some interesting influences including Wade Phillips, Rex Ryan, and of course, Romeo Crennel. So far, the players have been outspoken about him and have been praising him and his new approach to the defense, siting versatility and freedom. There has also been some shuffle in the position coaches on defense but nothing really too noteworthy. Special teams- Brad Seely is gone after a couple of really solid seasons as Special Teams Coordinator where we went from bottom half of the league to top 5 in several categories. In steps Tracy Smith who has been working with Brad for a long time to fill his shoes.
Players:
Losses- DeAndre Hopkins, DJ Reader, Tashaun Gipson, Angelo Blackson, Jordan Thomas, Jonathan Joseph, Barkevious Mingo, Carlos Hyde
Let’s just rip the band aid off here. Losing Hop sucked. It sucked when it happened, and it still sucks. However, I legitimately think we may have gotten better from having lost him; or at a minimum, we can give people a whole new look to try to defend and attack defenses like we never have before. With the additions we’ve made, that I will go over below, I think we have a lot more threats in more places and can attack different parts of the field than we have previously. DJ Reader was also a huge loss for us. No doubt that we wanted to keep him, but the numbers just would not have worked. Cincy got a good dude and one heck of a NT to start their new era under Burrow and his run stuffing and taking on double teams will be greatly missed here in Houston. In that same vein, we also lost Angelo Blackson, who was a solid contributor on defense in the run game and had some of the biggest plays of the year for us on special teams with his blocked kicks. Tashaun Gipson being cut came as somewhat of a surprise but one I can’t be too angry about. He was hurt for a chunk of the year and didn’t offer too much when healthy, especially at the price we got him for. Jordan Thomas was another surprise cut. A guy with tremendous physical gifts but was really derailed by his injury last year and fell behind Jordan Akins. Jonathan Joseph was another long-tome Texan we let go this offseason and he signed with the Titans. While he had his few moments of greatness last year, the clock has definitely caught up to this guy especially with how fast the league is becoming. Carlos Hyde was a solid player for us last year, but he was very one dimensional and probably asked for more money to keep him than we were willing to give. Barkevious Mingo was the last notable loss we had, and his impact was largely on special teams, but we shouldn’t lose a beat with him gone.
Additions- David Johnson, Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb, Eric Murray, Brent Qvale, Ross Blacklock, Jonathan Greenard, Charlie Heck, John Reid, Isaiah Coulter
I’ll talk about the additions more in the roster breakdown section below, but I will give a little blurb about each of them here for consistency sake.
In 2016 and going into 2017,David Johnson was regarded as one of the top running backs in the league for his ability to not only run, but to be unmatched in the passing game out of the backfield. Fast forward to 2020 and injuries, poor scheme fit/usage have pretty much changed everyone’s opinion on him to being washed shell of his former self. Needless to say the injuries have probably changed how he plays but the skills are all still there. Brandin Cooks has been traded for high picks a couple times now and this dude just produces everywhere he goes. Obviously, he’s a deep threat, his speed speaks for itself, but where he’s sneakily valuable is crossing the field and at the boundaries (see his catch on the Pats to finish us off in 2017). Cobb is going to be Mr. Reliable for us in the slot. He’s been in the league quite some time and knows the ins and outs of the slot position and should be a reliable safety blanket for Deshaun, especially on third downs. Eric Murray has bounced around a tad as well. Not really good at one thing over another but an all around reliable player which will fit just fine. I’m gonna be honest, I don’t know the first thing about Brent Qvale except he has a cool name so yeah. Onto the rookies. Man does Ross Blacklock excite the daylights out of me. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an IDL move with the purpose and speed that he does. It will be interesting to see how well he can handle pro defensive and offensive schemes but physically he’s already there and incredibly gifted. He can even give us some juice in the pass rush game that Reader wasn’t very consistent with. John Greenard is another guy I’m hype for. This guy has played a lot in college and he’s a pretty polished pass rusher in terms of his technique and his moves. He’s strong and plays with heavy hands. Hopefully he becomes a good rotational pass rusher a la Jacob Martin last year. Charlie Heck, unfortunate name, really cool guy. His dad is an offensive line coach so this guy is going to learn and develop well, especially behind Tunsil and Howard. Hopefully he never sees the field unless someone needs a breather but I’m sure he’ll be able to handle his own. John Reid by all accounts has had a tremendous camp for a rookie. He’s apparently very intelligent, asks great questions and is playing well already. Good to see us hopefully have found a gem in the back end. Isaiah Coulter seems like the new prototype for what the league is wanting out of Wide Receivers nowadays. He’s big, long, and can stretch the field. I was excited when we drafted him for him to learn behind Hop but that’s gone. Will be interesting to see him next year assuming he spends the year on PS.
Scheme: I’ll keep this one short since we don’t really know what we’re getting yet. On offense, I expect a lot of motion, misdirection, and a LOT of 3+ receiver looks a lot like what the Steelers did with AB and Le’Veon mixed in with what the Chiefs do with their motions to generate matchup mismatches. I also hope we get a lot of two back sets to keep defenses off guard with both the run and pass being options. Defensively, I expect some heat in the form of a lot of pressure through bringing in more than 4 rushers more frequently. Rex Ryan had Weaver for a time and that’s one of the hallmarks of a RR defense. Showing a lot of pressure, and sometimes bringing it but other times pulling a lot of guys back and it leaves offenses confused on protections and hot route assignments essentially taking one to two targets off the table for the quarterback. I also hope we get more DB blitzes since we have some speed out there now.
THE 53 MAN ROSTER BY POSITION:
QB(2): Deshaun Watson, AJ McCarron What more needs to be said here other than WE’VE GOT OUR GUY. In case you’ve been under a rock, or in Nashville, Watson signed a PHAT extension keeping him here for the next few years and I think most of us can agree, the FO did a GREAT job negotiating this one in all aspects. We all know who Watson is, the Houston Houdini, the Wizard Watson. His noodly appendage has won us so many games and he will continue to do so. With this new scheme and FINALLY a year of cohesion and consistency on the O-Line, the ball should be coming out quicker and he’ll be even better protected. That means, more completions, more Watson magic, more touchdowns, more wins, 1 2 3 Cancun. In all seriousness though, he deserves all the recognition he’s gotten and will continue to get. Just a tremendous representative of himself, this team, this city, and he’s pretty good at doing the Quarterbacking thing too. AJ McCarron will be backing Deshaun up again this year and he’s honestly one of the better backups we’ve had in BoB’s tenure. He had a great time week 17 and looked pretty good running the offense too. I hope he doesn’t see the field unless we’ve locked up the playoffs but I would be comfortable riding with him for a game or two.
RB(3): David Johnson, Duke Johnson, Buddy Howell I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty salty Karan Higdon didn’t make the 53. He was by all accounts earning the job but I suspect Howell’s role on special teams gave him the nod. Nonetheless, these are the 3 we’re rolling with and CJ Prosise on the PS from Seattle as well. A deceivingly diverse duo in the Johnsons. David being the bigger, more bruiser type back and Duke being the shifty shot in the arm. Make no mistake, both of these guys aren’t just pass catchers and they aren’t just runners, either. I feel like a lot of people pidgeon hole Duke as just a receiver and that couldn’t be more wrong. Yes his carries were limited, but he made the most of them. He seemed to always get positive yards when he touched the ball and saved our bacon a few times last year. I’m excited to see how they’ll be schemed up to create mismatches and hopefully we see a lot of two back sets with both of them to really put defenses in conflict.
FB(1): Cullen Gillaspia Gilly didn’t see too much time last year but he had one of the biggest blocks of the year on Deshaun’s run to the endzone against the Bills in the playoffs. He’s supposed to be used more this year and an in some intriguing ways so I’m excited to see what more our golden haired boy can do.
WR(6): Will Fuller V, Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb, Kenny Stills,Keke Coutee, Deandre Carter, Steven Mitchell Jr., Isaiah Coulter(IPS) I already addressed Hop being gone so let’s not bead a dead horse here. Unless it’s the Colts. First thing’s first, this is a FAST group. Cooks, Fuller, and Stills all ran <4.35s 40 yard dashes and Cobb ran 4.46s so he’s no slouch himself even at his age. That’s the obvious thing about this group. The not so obvious thing about this group is that they’re diverse. They aren’t just a bunch of fast one trick ponies like some teams have. They’re all polished route runners and are capable of making anyone miss after the catch. They’re also an experienced group and should bring some veteran savvy to the offense. Honestly surprised Keke made the team but his strong camp seems to have won the coaching staff over and hopefully he learns a lot from Cobb and puts his mental speed bumps behind him.
TE(3): Darren Fells, Jordan Akins, Kahale Warring Probably one of my favorite groups this year. The mountain that is Fells, insurmountable to DBs and unreachable by LBs. This guy is a matchup nightmare. Big, fast and strong. He knows where to park in zone and is as reliable as it gets in pass pro/run blocking. Jordan Akins might’ve been one of the biggest surprises of last year for us. His ability to shed the first tackler and get more yards than he should was pretty impressive and the guy is just a stud athlete. Speaking of stud athletes. ITS TIME FOR MORE PINEAPPLES. Our water polo project Kahale Warring made the roster over JT and all anyone ever says about Warring is that he could be a monster once he learns the pro game. He’s obscenely athletic and I’m really excited to see how often/how we use him.
OL(9): Laremy Tunsil, Max Scharping, Nick Martin, Zach Fulton, Tytus Howard, Charlie Heck, Senio Kelemete, Brent Qvale, Roderick Johnson There’s only one thing we have to say to describe our OL this year. CONTINUITY. For the first time in a long time, we’re bringing back all 5 starters and that honestly is the biggest relief for Texans fans who sat through the Julie’n Davenport, Oday Aboushi, Chris Clark offensive lines and tried to make them seem respectable. Bookend tackles, a stud center, and solid guards. We’re solid in pass pro and hopefully a year together provides some consistency in the run game which was very up and down last year.
DL(6): JJ Watt, Carlos Watkins, Brandon Dunn, Ross Blacklock, Charles Omenihu, PJ Hall The guy I’m most hype for on our roster is probably Omenihu. This guy was a big play a game pretty much last year and his snaps were so limited. He’s now slated to start opposite JJ and I’m pretty excited for it. He’s spent the offseason training hard and his physical skills of strength, length and speed hopefully will come out to play. On the inside,our big boy Reader is gone and here to take his place are DJ Dunny, PJ Hall and Ross Blacklock (nicknames TBD). I suspect of those 3, Blacklock will see the most time on the other end when Chuck needs a breather.
LB(9): Benardrick Mckinney, Whitney Mercilus, Zach Cunningham, Dylan Cole, Brennan Scarlett, Jonathan Greenard, Peter Kalambayi, Tyrell Adams, Jacob Martin The best dressed position group in the league is back with big money bags and even bigger expectations. All three of BMack, Mercilus and Cunningham have sizeable contracts and the expectations that go along with them are high and we’re definitely going to need more from them in the pass game. Our edge guys Mercilus, Greenard, Scarlett, and Martin are going to have to step up as well. Guarding TE’s RB’s and most importantly, GETTING AFTER QBs. Last year we all saw how anemic our pass rush was after JJ went down so if one or more of these guys step up it will make JJ’s job so much easier and lead to more turnovers. Tyrell Adams is another guy who had a good camp. This is another guy who always seems to be around the ball and if you remember, he caused a couple fumbles for us last year. Glad he made the 53 and excited to see him play.
CB(6): Bradley Roby, Gareon Conley(IR), Lonnie Johnson Jr., John Reid, Keion Crossen, Vernon Hargreaves III, Phillip Gaines, Cornell Armstrong, Michael Thomas(also doubles as a safety) What was a pretty patchwork group last year has turned into a somewhat respectable list of names. Roby is obviously the elder statesman here and he’ll have to back up his new deal. Conley will be on IR to start the first 3 weeks of the season so we likely turn to Lonnie Johnson Jr as our second CB. Lonnie worked with footwork king this offseason and has reportedly have a strong camp. If he put his technique together with how gifted he is physically, there’s no telling how good he can be. The slot position is an interesting one. I figure VH3 will be the main guy here with Reid and Gaines subbing in at various points. Michael Thomas was brought here to be primarily a special teamer but I assume he will get some time in dime/quarter looks.
S(3): Justin Reid, Eric Murray, AJ Moore We’ve been adding and subtracting pieces around Justin since he came to us. We had an answer in Mathieu but Gaine let him walk. 2020 brings us Reid + Murray which should be a solid tandem. Murray is a jack-of-all trades player so his liabilities should be minimal. AJ Moore was another camp star. High energy player who always finds his way to the ball. I assume there will be some sort of rotation with these three and maybe Michael Thomas to preserve Reid’s body.
Specialists (3): LS-Jon Weeks, P-Bryan Anger, K- Ka’imi Fairbairn Not gonna say much here. We know how legendary Weeks is and how vital he’s been to this team over the years. Nobody talks about it but consistent high level long-snapper play makes any special teams unit better. Anger had a really solid year last year. He placed the ball well, got good hangtime when needed, and even boomed a few for some surprising distance. Then there’s our favorite pineapple boi. Kai’imi struggled early last year but really found his stride with the holder change or whatever was going on mentally with him and he was lights out. Looking for this group to continue to hold it down.
THE SCHEDULE (W-L Predictions) I tried not to be too much on the kool aid and give unbiased opinions
Week 1 @ Kansas City (W) Hoping for a super bowl hangover here and being optimistic from the kool-aid. It’ll probably still be a close game, when has Houston sports ever not given us heart attacks? Record (1-0)
Week 2 vs Baltimore (L) I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again now. Lamar Jackson is not a good passer and I will die on this hill. Does that matter when you can outrun everyone or have your receivers be wide open from scheme? Nope. As improved as our defense may be, we haven’t done much to address mobile QBs unless there’s new scheme Weaver is bringing. I expect this to be an L. Record (1-1)
Week 3 @ Pittsburgh (L) The battle of the Watt brothers comes Week 3. I’m not really sold on Pittsburgh offensively even with the addition of Ebron, but their defense per usual seems to be strong. Will probably be another game that’s bad for the blood pressure but I’ll give them the nod since their defense is more of a known commodity. Record (1-2)
Week 4 vs Minnesota (L) This game terrifies me. That defense is going to be disgusting. Ngakoue and Griffen on the line. Kendricks and Barr in the middle. Smith and co on the back end. Such a good team. Will be interesting to see what their offense looks like without Diggs and Stefanski. I think it’s too early in the season for our offense to overcome a defense this stacked. Record (1-3)
Week 5 vs Jacksonville (W) We all know the Jags are sandbagging. W for the good guys. Record (2-3)
Week 6 @ Tennessee (L) I’m gonna go out on a limb and say the Titans making it as far as they did last year was a fluke and that they don’t do enough offensively (scheme wise) to have made any improvement. Clowney is there now though so hopefully our boys give him a day to remember, but we always somehow find a way to lose to the Titans from one cheese play they have so I’ll give us the L here. Record (2-4)
Week 7 vs Green Bay (W) Like many, I was very confused when I saw their draft and I don’t think they’ve done enough to capitalize on Rodgers’s window to win now. They’re a better team than they were two years ago, but not enough improvement from last year to this year on paper for me to warrant giving us an L here. Jaire Alexander is a BEAST though much respect. Record (3-4)
Week 8 BYE Record (3-4)
Week 9 @ Jacksonville (W) See previous Jags game and then remember that God hates the Jags. Record (4-4)
Week 10 @ Cleveland (W) I heard OBJ is a #2 receiver now. He can catch an L on the field too when their defense still isn’t any better. Get well soon, Delpit. Record (5-4)
Week 11 vs New England (W) There’s no telling what the Pats will look like without Tom. Their receivers are still very underwhelming and they still have that classic Pats RBBC going on in the backfield. I trust their defense will be good again, probably good enough to win them some games. But not this one. Record (6-4)
Week 12 @ Detroit (W) I don’t know what to say about Detroit. They seem to always have so much promise but they’re just so dysfunctional from the top down and it makes it really hard to project them, which sucks because I love Matt Stafford. I don’t think they’ve done enough in the offseason to sniff competitiveness, especially not with DeAndre Swift reportedly struggling mightily in camp. Record (7-4)
Week 13 vs. Indianapolis (W) I’ll mention this below, but I’m not sold on Phillip Rivers being an upgrade to Brissett, nor am I sold on that tire fire of a backfield they have with reports of Jonathan Taylor struggling in camp. That defense is still pretty porous and TY Hilton is still public enemy #1 for us but they don’t have much else now that Ebron is gone. Record (8-4)
Week 14 @ Chicago (W) This defense is scary. But then you look at the other side of the ball and see Mitch and you forget how good their defense is. Should be an easy W and some good winter football in the Windy City. Record (9-4)
Week 15 @ Indianapolis (L) Much like the Titans, we always somehow seem to drop a game to Indy even though on paper, we blow them out of the water. This fact, and the fact that Houston sports can never be easy on our arteries, dishes out the L for us. Record (9-5)
Week 16 vs Cincinnati (W) Really excited to see what this team will be in a few years under Burrow, etc. But they’re just too early into the rebuild for them to hang. Take care of DJ Reader plz. Record (10-5)
Week 17 vs. Tennessee Clowney’s return to Houston will be a glorious one. For us. At this point, Henry should be tuckered out from backpacking this team all year and give us a W after all our new pieces have had the year to gel. Record (11-5)
REALLY QUICK AFCS PREVIEW
COLTS I really disliked their moves this offseason, aside from drafting Jacob Eason who I think will be a stud with good coaching (not sure Indy will give him that though). But letting Ebron go, and replacing who was a pretty serviceable starter for them in Brissett with haphazard Phillip Rivers I think were two big downgrades on offense. Getting Armstead from SF was a good boost to their DL but the cost was way too high for the amount of help they need on the back end even with the Xavier Rhodes pickup. Expected Record: somewhere around 6-10/7-9
TITANS Just don’t like how this team is constructed in the context of today’s NFL. A very old school, smashmouth attitude brought by Vrabel that works for them I guess but I don’t think it holds longevity or consistency. Expected Record: 9-7
JAGS Crazy to think they nearly made the Super Bowl in 2017 and now they’re back where they always were, at the bottom of the heap. They definitely have gotten value in the draft but not at positions that improve themselves as a whole. Their receviers are still leaving much to be desired, they cut a first round pick RB for no apparent reason, and they sold their secondary for not too much in return.The front office is still dysfunctional as we’ve seen players talk about. Just need to get rid of the current regime and start over. Expected Record: 4-12
TL;DR The Texans have an extremely talented roster top to bottom and can compete with anyone in the league when fully healthy. The beginning of our schedule is brutal, but I’m confident that with the surprise of new scheme and personnel, especially on offense, e can steal a few wins and go into the meat of our schedule and make some noise. I’m really hoping we shut a lot of doubters up about the Hop/DJ trade, BoB’s GM moves and the whole narrative that we’re an incompetent franchise. Thanks for reading and as always, FTC.

On how Jeanine Añez became Interim President of Bolivia

On the afternoon of November 10, Evo Morales Ayma announced his resignation as President of the Republic of Bolivia. The streets of the country immediately exploded in celebration and joy, citizens in jubilee after the brave victory of the Protests
However, it would not take long for Bolivians to realize they had a major problem on their hands. With Evo out of power...Who is in charge of Bolivia now?

Sunday, November 10: Morales admits defeat

By Sunday afternoon, Evo already had lost control over Bolivia. His shock troops had been widely outnumbered (in number and organization) by Opposition protests. Police had no intention to suppress the protests, and riots began to follow one after the other, in all regions of the country
After the OAS report, blaming the Electoral Tribunal for serious errors in the vote tall [**] and the “vote of no confidence” given by the Bolivian Army[**], Evo knew his government was, de facto, finished Morales and his VicePresident Alvaro Garcia will resign to their positions, at noon.
(Click Here, For a more detailed explanation on why all these events occurred)

Monday, November 11: Bolivia at the verge of Civil War:

Peacemaking attempts by the Armed Forces and Police begin across the country. [**][**]. Indirectly, benefiting the opposition, who could now protest with armed protection [**]
That same day, around ~ 10,000 Evo supporters reached the Capital, encouraging the People a La Paz to start Civil War[**]. Although they were not properly armed to confront the police or the military, if they get chance to clash with opposition protests, the number of deaths and injured could be catastrophic
Hours later, Senate President Adriana Salvatierra would resign out of solidarity with Morales[**]. The President of the Chamber of Deputies Victor Borda would also resign, denouncing attacks against his property and family [**]
These resignations couldn’t come at a worse time. According to the article 170 of the Bolivian Constitution, the line of succession was: President, Vice President, President of the Senate, President of the Chamber of Deputies.[**] Simply put, the entire chain of command had resigned in less than 24 hours...
The Government and the Military had been left beheaded, something the Army was particular afraid of. Remember, the one reason the Military High Command requested Morales' resignation, was to avoid the increasing risk of Armed Conflict in the country between both factions
And just a day later, thousands Evo’s supporters arrive to the Capital trying to start a Civil War[**] against the Opposition. The chances for the Military to stop the conflict were quickly fading away, and without a President as Commander in Chief, their ability to be deployed was severely limited. Every hour lost was critical, as the tension in the country couldn’t be higher…
Meanwhile, the Opposition also was trying to convince MAS leaders to put a new leader on place. At first, they were okey with them taking over the country, but it wouldn't be long before they realized they had a rather interesting opportunity with the chain of command now broken
One way or another, it was going to be necessary for Congress to sit down and discuss who would rule Bolivia from for the next months, and given the imperative circumstances, it was going to be a quick debate. The Opposition realized they might had a chance to grant the decisive vote, and choose to support Leader more in line to their interests
However, the MAS was not interested (for the moment) in returning to Congress to discuss a new President. On Monday November 11, the party declines to attend their jobs, despite the immense pressures to find a solution, and the inminent risk of a national Crisis…

Tuesday November 12: Jeanine Añez becomes Interim President of Bolivia

On Tuesday morning, the Opposition called again for MAS to resume talks for the succession of Power.[**] To which the MAS insists, the political and security conditions were not enough to discuss the process [**]
The crisis was still raging on, but at the afternoon of November 12, the Opposition found an extraordinary legal precedent that was going completely change the nature of the conflict: The Constitutional Declaration 003/2001
In 2001, the Constitutional Court of Bolivia had established that, on the exceptional circumstance in which the power vacuum cannot be resolved under any formal procedure established in the Constitution, the Presidential succession should be carried out by Constitutional Declaration immediately, and at any cost [**]
It may sounds like an extremly specific and convenient legal precedent. But you must remember Bolivia has historically been a very unstable country. Bolivians have had to go through countless Coups d'état and sudden Resignations.[**] Therefore, having such specific Constitutional Jurisprudence referring to the vacuum in power, was not entirely unexpected
The Opposition called again the Congress to vote, but once again, the MAS did not appear. Without them, the Opposition decided to re-structure the Senate, and granted Jeanine Añez the title of Senate’s President. [**] As the new Speaker of the Senate, she was now officially in the Constitutional chain of command. And that night of November 12, Añez is proclaimed by the Opposition as Interim President of Bolivia.
A couple of hours later, and the Constitutional Court formally ratify Jeanine Añez in office by the aforementioned Constitutional Declaration 003/2001. [**]. Military would soon follow, and recognized her as Commander in Chief[**]
And thus, the succession process was finally complete. Jeanine Añez was now in control of the Government, the Army and the Nation

FAQS

ELI5 the Chain of Command in Bolivia
According to the Bolivian Constitution, the official chain of command only falls into 4 people: President, Vice President, President of the Senate and President of the Chamber of Deputies
As all of them had resigned, the position remained vacant for the Congressman/Congresswoman who was declared President of the Senate or President of the Chamber of Deputies first. The natural candidates for that position were the Vice Presidents of the Senate and the Vice Presidents of the Chamber of Deputies.
By consensus, the chain of command ended it up like this:
A) Why did President of the Senate, Adriana Salvatierra resigned?
The reasons for her resignation is the source of countless conspiracy theories, since she was the most natural option to take the position of Interim President of Bolivia. Conspiracies about her resignation range from Treason, human mistake, threats, or the result of a very convoluted political plan to bring Evo Back... whatever the case is, the resignation of Salvatierra is perhaps one of the greatest mysteries surrounding Bolivia presidential succession
B) Why did the President of the Chamber of Deputies, Victor Borda resigned?
As I explained earlier, violence in Bolivia was escalating rapidly. During the Protest, Borda became known for urging the violence of the MAS shock troops, against anti-Evo manifestations. But once the Protesters began to overpower the government troops, Victor took the whole brunt of it. His house was burned and his brother harassed and humiliated in public
Borda would resign to try to appease the attacks on his person and family. Although it is a sad situation, it is also the classic example of leopardsatemyface ...
C) Why did the 1st VP of the Senate, Raúl Garáfulic resigned?
After the report of the OAS, which blamed the Electoral Tribunal for serious errors in the vote tall, Garáfulic felt betrayed by the Government. He resigned as VP in protest
D) Why did the 1st VP of the Chamber of Deputies, Susana Rivero resigned?
She did not resign, and she should have assumed the position of Interim President. But at that time, the MAS was still playing their weird 5D strategy of not presenting themselves in the Congress.
She herself canceled (on November 12) the meeting of the Chamber of Deputies. With the Chamber closed, Rivero lost the opportunity to become President of the Chamber of Deputies, which was the critical step to become Interim President of Bolivia
E) So Jeanine Añez assumed power by...Luck??
All the real and concrete evidence we have, indicates it was just Luck. Or virtue of Randomness, if you prefer to call it that way
Añez belongs to a minority party, from an unimportant region, and she herself did not have any political leadership at the time. But Añez was the only one who deigned to appear at the Congress, while all the other High Officials of Bolivia had resigned, or flatly refused to attend any meetings
The Constitutional Declaration 003/2001, required the Constitutional Court to solve the Problem of the Vacuum of Power as quickly as possible. True: Añez was the ~ 7th in the chain of command. But, on virtue nobody else wanted to be present at those critical times…they had to choose her
F) Was it legal for the Opposition to re-structure the Senate?
This is undoubtedly the weakest point of the succession process. The opposition took advantage of the lack of the MAS Congressmen to reform Senate’s directive, and bring Jeanine Añez to the Presidency of the Senate
This re-structure was done with only 1/3 of a quorum of the chamber. The opposition argues reforming the Senate did not need quorum but, personally, I cannot attest that was exactly true
G) Was Jeanine Añez's promotion to the Interim Presidency Legal?
Her interim presidency is perfectly Legal. And that’s why it was promptly recognized both by the Constitutional Court, Military as well as all the other institutions of the State, including MAS Party. (Fun fact: Even Russia had to recognize her)
Regardless of the strict legality of reforming the Senate’s directive, the jurisprudence of the Bolivia's Constitutional Court was clear cut: Regardless of whether the transition is done 100% according to Law, at any given point, someone has to be in control of the Government. The Military just coudn't be left alone without a Leader
H) So ... the Opposition did not carry out a Coup??
Unless the Bolivian Opposition has some sort of time machine, that theory is absolute nonsense
While it's possible to argue there might be a plot to bring down Evo Morales, no one could have predicted the entire Bolivian command chain (100% in the hands of MAS party) was going to resign to office too
Furthermore, MAS had (and still has) Complete control of the 2 Congress Chambers. At any given point, MAS could have took Power. But due to their weird 5D Chess strategy, they just refused to choose a successor for Evo
I)But…then why MAS didn’t just choose another president?
That’s the Golden Question everyone wants to understand. Why MAS, having an absolute majority in both Houses, and Holding all the positions of Power in the Country, did not choose a successor for Evo Morales?
The conspiracy theories about this strategy are endless

Defending The Draft 2020: Detroit Lions

Thank you for tuning into this episode of defending the draft; where we put on our Honolulu blue tinted glasses and project nothing but great things for the rookies that have been drafted. Now obviously not everyone will make it big in the NFL, it’s incredibly hard to hit a home run with one or two picks so hitting on a whole draft class would be once in a lifetime prospect. Quinn has seemingly adopted the Patriot way of drafting, and instead of looking to hit that home run on each pick they evaluate players based on what role they can perform and where they can fit on the roster. Without further ado, let’s dive on in.


Player Position HT WT Draft Slot
Jeffery Okudah CB 6'1" 205 Round 1, #3
D'Andre Swift RB 5'8" 212 Round 2, #35
Julian Okwara OLB/DE 6'4" 252 Round 3, #67
Jonah Jackson OG 6'3" 306 Round 3, #75
Logan Stenberg OG 6'6" 317 Round 4, #121
Quintez Cephus WR 6'1" 202 Round 5, # 166
Jason Huntley RB/KR 5'9" 193 Round 5, #172
John Penisini DT 6'1" 313 Round 6, #197
Jashon Cornell DT/DE 6'2" 287 Round 7, #235

Round 1

Pick 3, Jeffery Okudah, CB, Ohio State

Leading up to the NFL draft there was a ton of talk about the Lions trading the number 3 pick in the draft. It was the hope of many that this would happen. Getting another day 2 pick would have been ideal but it seems that the Lions had other plans in mind. The Dolphins and Chargers seemed content to let the draft fall to them and probably didn’t offer up much in the way of capital to the Lions. So, the Lions went and submitted their pick to get “their guy”.
Their guy ended up being Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State. This was a guy that was often mocked to the Lions at three so it definitely wasn’t a flashy pick that generated much hype for some, but he was often mocked at three for a reason. Let’s take a look at why. If I wanted to sum up Okudah in a word it would be fluid. This guy is silky smooth with great foot quickness. Okudah can mirror receivers and stay in their hip pocket throughout their route. Okudah seems to process the field well and can pick up on route concepts. Okudah has worked a lot on getting his head around and does well with tracking the ball and getting his hand in to break up the pass. Okudah is a physical press corner that excels in man coverage. He should be able to drop right into Patricia’s defense and develop as a number 2 corner behind Trufant, at least for the next year or two before taking over as the number one. Okudah is a high character guy who is very intelligent as shown by his wonderlic score of 30. Okudah also has great measurables. He ran the 40 in 4.48 seconds with a 1.6 second 10-yard split. He had a crazy 41-inch vertical along with a 135-inch broad jump. Okudah Also plays with a ton of confidence, but not in a cocky arrogant way. He is confident that all the time he has put into watching film and preparing for game day has given him the knowledge to beat you in any possible way. If a new wrinkle is thrown in, he can learn on the fly and won’t let it catch him off guard again. Some people have brought up that Okudah is a bit handsy in coverage, this shows me that Okudah was able to play within the maximum constraints of the game. It might take a bit of adjusting for him to get used to NFL referees but he should be able to maximize his hand use within the confines of the rules. Okudah’s 2019 season was his most productive in college as he racked up 12 passes defensed, 3 interceptions, and 2 forced fumbles.
Where does he fit now?
Okudah seems to have the talent to drop right into the thick of it and start as the number one corner right away. Patricia usually has the rookies earn their spots so Okudah will probably be an understudy to Trufant, at least for a while. If Okudah crushes his assignments early and often expect him to wrestle the starting spot away from Trufant.
Where does he project?
Okudah has the talent, technique, physical strength, intellect, and confidence to be one of the best shutdown corners in the league. Given his thirst for knowledge and willingness to improve himself I see no clear obstacles to his final projection.

Round 2

Pick 35, D’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia

The Lions went into day two with the 35th pick in the draft. I was thinking that the Lions could trade back a bit and then go defensive line. Color me surprised when the Lions went with a running back at the top of the second round. D’Andre Swift was the pick and there is a lot to like with Swift. There is a lot to like in his running style and traits. He is a quick processor and can identify the hole quickly even if they open up a little late. He also displays enough patience to allow for plays to develop before turning on the jets. Once he makes his mind up, he commits and can burst through the hole. In the open field he has enough wiggle and power to put would be tacklers off balance and then run through them. Swift also shows off a nice little spin move that he likes to pull out every once in a while. Swift has great hands and can catch whatever is thrown his way. He has good suddenness in his routes and generally gravitates towards open space. Swift displays natural hands and can seamlessly track the football and look it in for the catch. Swift shows good speed and quickness on film and his combine reaffirms that. He ran a 4.48 40-yard dash with a 1.59 10-yard split. He jumped 35.5 inches in the vertical and 121 inches in the broad jump. He didn’t do any agility drills but his tape shows good quickness with the ability to make sharp cuts then burst out just as quickly. He has also posted some workout videos that display his insane foot speed. Swift can even do a decent job at blocking when needed. He can be a tad slow to process double blitzes but he can usually put his body on a blocker and keep his QB safe for an extra second or so. Swift is a gamer, and I am excited to see what he can do with the Lions.
Where does he fit now?
The Lions have a fairly crowded backfield with Kerryon Johnson, Bo Scarbrough, Ty Johnson, and Jason Huntley. Swift should immediately slot in as the backup running back while being the first option as a receiving back.
Where does he project?
Swift has the talent to be one of the best running backs from his draft class. He is a complete back that can get it done on the ground and as a receiving option. He projects to be the best running back the Lions have had since Barry Sanders and given the health concerns with Kerryon Johnson over the past two years, Swift may be on a fast track to proving his worth.

Round 3

Pick 67, Julian Okwara, OLB/DE , Notre Dame

In the third round the Lions selected Julian Okwara. This pick makes sense on two fronts. Firstly, the Lions needed to shore up their pass rush. They simply couldn’t get any going last season and Julian could possibly be a key cog in unlocking the pass rush. Secondly, the Lions already roster Julian’s brother, Romeo, on the team which can be a huge bonus to helping him get ready for the upcoming season with a neutered off-season program. Romeo has been with the Lions for two seasons and should be able to bring his brother up to speed on plays and terminology. Okwara as a player has grown not just as a player at Notre Dame, but also as a leader. Brian Kelly has gone on record to say that he thought it was darn near impossible for Okwara to become a Leader. This leads me to believe that Okwara was an incredibly immature player earlier in his college career. As time went on, he seems to have matured and was named a captain.
Okwara as a prospect is an interesting study. He is fast and strong. He can convert speed to power and show decent bend along the edge. He also has experience dropping into coverage and has a good idea about his assignments. At times he can react a bit slow or not be aware at all of the ball when he drops onto coverage. At times he appears to be incredibly dominant and other times he can get pushed around quite a bit. He also needs more development as a run blocker as he took himself out of some plays.
Where does he fit now?
Okwara Should be able to slot in at the JACK linebacker spot. He could also rotate in as a DE on some downs.
Where does he project?
Okwara should be able to develop into the starting JACK linebacker while rotating in as a pass rushing specialist at DE.

Pick 75, Jonah Jackson, OG, Ohio State

As the draft played out, the Lions were not comfortable with waiting for their original draft slot at 85. They sent 85, 149. and 182 for 75 and 197. The Lions ended up trading up to nab Jonah Jackson out of Ohio. Initially it was a disappointing pick, not because of the player, but because they hype of trading up in the draft conveys a certain excitement that needs to be quenched by a flashy pick. An OG is pretty much the antithesis of a flashy pick though. That being said, Jonah Jackson is a great dude and a solid player. He spent 4 years at Rutgers getting the job done. He then said to himself, “this is too easy, I want more” so he transferred to Ohio State so he could be part of the strongest conference in college football on one of the best teams in college football. He continued to get the job done giving up only one sack or QB on 1,020 pass-blocking snaps. The Lions must have seen something they loved about Jackson as they had first hand experience coaching him in the Senior Bowl. Jonah Jackson also exhibits position versatility as he played games at multiple positions over his career. He logged 13 games at RG, 14 games at LG, and 3 games at C.
When I watched Jonah Jackson play I just thought to myself, he might lose a battle, but he will win the war. He just seems so technically sound with his hand placement and footwork that he can turn a loss on a first move into a win as he readjusts. He exhibits good body control at times and is able to redirect the opponent’s power and speed to where he wants it to go. He also shows plus play power which he uses to stonewall rushers and move blockers out of the way in the run game. He always keeps his head on a swivel and hunts out contact.
Where does he fit now?
The incumbent OG’s on the Lions are Joe Dahl, Kenny Wiggins, Joshua Garnett, Beau Benzschawel, Caleb Benenoch, and Oday Aboushi. It’s not exactly a strong lineup. Jonah Jackson should be right up there in competition for a starting slot and should be able to beat out one of the projected starting guards in Dahl or Wiggins.
Where does he project?
Assuming Jackson and Stenberg win roles, then I would project Jackson to RG as he is more position versatile than Stenberg and has more experience playing different spots on the line. If the Lions could come out of this draft with two quality guards then this line will be set for a while. Decker, Stenberg, Ragnow, Jackson, Vaitai. Decker is the only one that is playing in a contract year. This line should have enough time to play together and gel. Hopefully we finally have a strong pass and run blocking line.

Round 4

Pick 121, Logan Stenberg, OG, Kentucky

The Lions had a bit of a wait after their second third round pick at 75 and had to wait until 121 to pick again. Color everyone surprised when Quinn went and double-dipped at OG with back to back picks. Logan Stenberg ended up being the pick and if I had to sum him up in one word it would be “NASTY”. This guy is on another level when it comes to the effort he plays with on the field. He goes and mauls everything in his way and then looks for more. He is as strong as an ox and just beats people down constantly. That being said, his emotions can get the best of him as he collected 14 penalties in 2019 alone. Stenberg was also part of the Senior Bowl this year and was able to impress the opposing Lions enough for them to draft him. Stenberg is a strong people mover and is stout at the line. He doesn’t seem as controlled and balanced as Jackson but he has more power.
Where does he fit now?
As said with Jackson, the OG lineup isn’t exactly stellar. Stenberg can potentially go in and win the LG spot outright. If not, the Lions have dabbled in rotating lineman before and he could be a depth piece.
Where does he project?
He should be able to lock up a starting role once he gets some NFL seasoning. He is a powerful player but lacks in discipline and could use some time fleshing out his pass-sets. He should be a plus run-blocking guard and should be able to open up nice gaps on the left side of the line next to Decker and Ragnow.

Round 5

Pick 166, Quintez Cephus, WR, Wisconsin

In a draft that sported a total of 36 wide receivers being drafted it would be a pretty large disappointment to finish the draft without a single one. The Lions decided to draft Quintez Cephus in the 5th round. The first thing that pops out when you research Cephus is his combine. More specifically his 4.73 second 40-yard dash. This was the worst run out of all the wide receivers at the combine. This time is quite shocking though as he seems to play a lot faster than his time and seems to have a lot of poweexplosion in his lower body as indicated by his vertical jump and broad jump of 38.5 inches and 124 inches respectively. He also posted the most reps of 225 at the combine with 23. His combine pretty much sums him up as a player when watching film. He can get off the line with good burst, he is incredibly physical and won’t get bullied by defenders, and his long speed is questionable. Cephus, with his strength, feasts on contested catches. He has immensely strong mitts that can pluck and pry the ball out of the air or from defenders. He is exactly the kind of receiver the Lions have lacked since Boldin graced the Lions with his dad strength. A rough and tough receiver that is a reliable receiver. There was one play that I really enjoyed watching. Against Oregon, 3rd and 4, Cephus catches the ball on the line of scrimmage. Troy Dye, the Vikings 4th round draft pick, is in position to tackle him 2 yards shy of the first. Cephus throws out a stiff arm and puts Dye on his butt, uses the contact to bounce towards the first down marker, then carries another linebacker on his back for an additional 8 yards.
Thanks for u/The_PantsMcPants for reminding me that Okudah called Cephus the hardest WR to cover in an interview awhile back.
Where does he fit now?
Cephus should be able to slot in at the 4th receiver role. Travis Fulgham from the 2019 draft hasn’t shown much yet and could be surpassed by Cephus. He could see most of his work in short yardage situations that require reliability and strong hands. 3rd and short and red zone might be places we see Cephus most often.
Where does he project?
The Lions are going into the season with their top 3 wide receivers on the last year of their deal. The Lions will most likely extend Golladay, but the future of the elderly Amendola and Marvin Jones may be up in the air. Cephus could most likely be used in a similar fashion as Amendola, but he provides more of a big slot, contested catch type of ability.

Pick 172, Jason Huntley, RB, New Mexico State

With their next pick the Lions surprised damn near everybody. People could understand why Quinn would double dip at guard, but now at running back? It was a bit puzzling at first, especially since it was a small school nobody that didn’t even make the top 300 players for some draft pundits. The Lions selected Jason Huntley out of New Mexico State and his trademark is versatility. Huntley can possibly take three people’s jobs this coming season. He can be a back-up running back, he can be a kick returner, and he can possibly deny a roster spot to a back-up wide receiver. To start off, Huntley is a small dude. He is 5’9” and about 193lbs. That puts him an inch taller and 19lbs lighter that D’Andre Swift, but Huntley has the speed and top end gear that Swift doesn’t. Huntley was timed around 4.37 at his pro day, which would have made him the fastest running back at the combine had he been invited. His speed is apparent when his receives kicks as he housed 5 during his career at New Mexico. On top of all that, he also has good hands as he is the only running back in this draft that broke 1000 yards receiving throughout his career in college. There was also one game against UTEP in which he averaged almost 14 yards per carry as he ran rampant racking up 191 yards and 3 TD on just 14 carries.
Where does he fit now?
Huntley as a running back can slot into the J.D. McKissic role from last season as more of a scat back. He can be a dynamic receiving option that won’t get much work between the tackles. He could also push Jamal Agnew for the kick returner job.
Where does he project?
Based on his college production in the return game he has the potential to become an elite kick returner. He also has the skills to be a role player as a game-breaking scat back that can flex out wide and catch passes.

Round 6

Pick 197, John Penisini, DT, Utah

On to the 6th round and the Lions finally got around to addressing the defensive tackle spot. The Lions just lost Snacks Harrison and were in need of a run stuffing defensive tackle. The Lions Signed Danny Shelton in the offseason and he should be able to plug up hole effectively but it never hurts to add depth to rotate out those big bodies. In comes Penisini. He is a stout tackle that is all motor. He never quits on a play and will continue to run and hustle no matter what. There were multiple times where Penisini would be around chasing the ball 7+ yards away from the line of scrimmage and tackling the ball carrier. He also has the strength to eat up double teams and shed the blocks to still make a tackle. This guy doesn’t quit and I love it. Penisini plays with great **pad level** and can control his opponent with strong hands.
Where does he fit now?
He should be able to back up Shelton right from the get go and be a plus run stuffer. Not much else to say about him, he will be a one or two down role-player as a run stuffer and that’s about it.
Where does he project?
Penisini has shown some flashes or pass rushing potential in college but he will need to improve his pass rush arsenal if he hopes to make an impact in the pros. With some development Penisini could become a 3 down DT, but that is quite a bit of wishful thinking. With his motor and drive I can see him making it happen, but I wouldn’t be too hopeful.

Round 7

Pick 235, Jashon Cornell, DE/DT, Ohio State

In the 7th round the Lions picked up another versatile player in Jashon Cornell. He was largely unheralded out of Ohio State as he was overshadowed by all the star power around him. His size also makes him a bit of a tweener placing him between an oversized DE or an undersized DT.
Where does he fit now?
Cornell will be fighting for a backend roster spot. His versatility to play two spots may let him make the roster over someone else. He fits a similar mold that made Austin Bryant a Lion in the 2019 draft. If he makes the roster he may be a rotation DE that could kick inside to DT on pass rushing downs.
Where does he project?
Cornell has shown that he can put together a decent season with an all-star cast around him. Does that make him an opportunist or a product of the system? Either way he will need to earn his keep and being an impact rotational player is about as high as I would project him in the future.

Projected Roster


QB: Matthew Stafford, Chase Daniels

RB: Kerryon Johnson, D'Andre Swift, Bo Scarbrough, Ty Johnson, Jason Huntley

FB: Luke Sellers

WR: Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, Danny Amendola, Quintez Cephus, Marvin Hall

TE: TJ Hockenson, Jesse James, Hunter Bryant

OT: Taylor Decker, Halapoulivaati Vaitai, Tyrell Crosby,

OG: Joe Dahl, Jonah Jackson, Kenny Wiggins, Logan Stenberg, Joshua Garnett

C: Frank Ragnow

DT: Danny Shelton, Nick Williams, John Penisini, Jashon Cornell

DE: Trey Flowers, Romeo Okwara, DaShawn Hand, Austin Bryant

LB: Jaime Collins, Jahlani Tavai, Jarrad Davis, Julian Okwara, Reggie Ragland, Christian Jones

CB: Desmond Trufant, Jeffery Okudah, Justin Coleman, Amani Oruwariye, Mike Ford, Bobby Price

S: Tracy Walker, Duron Harmon, Will Harris, Jayron Kearse, Jalen Elliott

P: Arryn Siposs

K: Matt Prater

LS: Steven Wirtel

Obviously means all of about nothing now. Such an early projection when no one has even started practicing yet. I just went out on a limb and made some surprise upsets. I have Reeves-Maybin, Killebrew, Virgin, Fulgham, Mulbach, and Agnew all losing their jobs. Five UDFA made my list, Hunter Bryant, Bobby Price, Jalen Elliott, Luke Sellers, and Arryn Siposs. The biggest change is me betting against the timeless wonder Muhlbach. Take it with a grain of salt.

The Progressive Case for Choosing Andrew Yang Over Bernie Sanders

Preface: For a while now, people on this sub have been asking me to make a dedicated post about my issues with Senator Sanders. At first, I didn't want to due to a lot of recent negative posts on Bernie here. At the same time, I think my views are important to consider as they come from a place of deep concern, for my future and my family's future. Ultimately, I think the biggest push was someone who told me they were able to Yang several people with my posts, which is really touching to hear, and why I finally decided to do this. A bit about me: I voted for Bernie in the primaries in 2016, Jill Stein in the general, and Zephyr Teachout as a downticket candidate in 2018. Now three years later since Bernie's last run, as a minority on welfare, now with personal experience with several of Bernie's flagship proposals, I cannot in good conscience vote for him this time around.
Starting off, Bernie’s proposals are not dealing with the biggest elephant in the room: local and state governments. It’s the state governments responsible for: Jim Crow laws, corrupt law enforcement, anti-lgbt laws, abortion laws, etc. It doesn’t help that he continuously praises FDR, a man who knowingly allowed the passing of Jim Crow laws that barred minorities from the benefits of the New Deal, in order to gain the southern vote and never saw a need to help minorities with anything, leading to an age of prosperity for the majority of Americans, as long as you were white. It was needed at the time to get America out of the Great Depression, sure, but we really shouldn't be praising it and trying to bring it back. While Bernie is not racist, he is committing the same flaws that led to the ease of excluding minorities in the first place even now with The Green New Deal.
https://www.history.com/news/fdr-eleanor-roosevelt-anti-lynching-bill
https://courses.lumenlearning.com/boundless-ushistory/chapteminorities-and-the-new-deal/
" While the New Deal was formally designed to benefit African Americans, some of its flagship programs, particularly those proposed during the First New Deal, either excluded African Americans or even hurt them. "
Problem with Bernie is that all of his plans work as trickle down for the public sector. Yes, trickle down. Bill Clinton further reinforced this with the 1994 Crime Bill, the same bill Bernie signed (yes, I know why he signed it - the Violence Against Women Act, but it overall led to disastrous consequences for those he wanted to help). Thanks to the 1994 Welfare Reform Act which was included with the bill, the federal gov can only provide the funding for social programs, while it’s the states that actually administer and execute the programs at the ground level.
https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/06/through-welfare-states-are-widening-racial-divide/591559/
https://www.jacobinmag.com/2016/08/welfare-reform-clinton-twentieth-anniversary-poverty/
This has led to millions being missed or being denied over ridiculous reasons, cutting of funds, and mismanagement of funds (red states using tanf funds to fund abstinence programs in minority schools). As it is, Bernie is not addressing any of this. I voted for him previously, but had a problem with him in regards to this back then too. I was hoping he would’ve improved his policies or thought them over since 2016, but he has not. If trickle down is a disaster in the private sector, why are we still giving it a pass in the public sector? We’re supposed to be fighting systems of oppression as progressives, but this one isn’t given nearly amount of attention it should.
Even worse, no one in Bernie's camp is even grilling him on this stuff to begin with. As a minority on public assistance, it’s really upsetting to see. He’s talking about M4A and FJG, when the poor can’t even afford public trans (more on this later), and the homeless can’t even afford to gather the necessary documents needed to apply to jobs in the first place. UBI is incredible in that it immediately deals with all of these issues, without placing the onus on state governments to actually carry it out - lest they make excuses and cut funding or prioritize certain neighborhoods like they do with everything else. Rather, the money is going directly to the people, especially those who’ve been ignored or treated as burdens up till now.
FJG is hands down one of the most anti-disability friendly policies I’ve heard being proposed in a while. Nevermind, the fact that most disabled can’t even commute or work a job to begin with, but for those who can, it diminishes their unique strengths and forces them into an environment they most likely won’t be suited for. I’m also autistic and I’ve been teased and harassed over misunderstandings at every min wage job I’ve worked. I’m also fairly easy to dupe into doing work for someone else or be taken advantage of. I can’t imagine being stuck 30+ years in a job with unemployable, bitter people who are itching for a vulnerable punching bag to take out their anger on, and a boss who would rather turn a blind eye or be elsewhere, just because the government doesn’t see me as a valuable person unless I’m doing something to benefit it. This has already happened in France; we don't need tragedies of this form in America.
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/09/world/europe/france-telecom-trial.html
Low-level gov work is rife with workplace abuse issues. A little bit more about me. My father was a state government worker. He worked as a janitor for a public school from the 80s up until his retirement in the mid-2010s. He wasn’t disabled, but he was the only minority janitor there. They had him doing all the dirty work and overtime hours, and he rarely ever had enough time to just spend with me and my mother because of it. Another reason why the FJG scares me. As someone who helps out my parents with daily activities now, it wouldn't benefit myself, nor other caretakers either.
For those with disabilities, Bernie's policies are beyond lacking:
https://berniesanders.com/issues/disability-rights/
I support ending the sub-minimum wage. However, everything else is simply a pivot back to the FJG or welfare. SSDI and SSI is broken in this country and come with strict work limits and requirements. Thousands die every year from states cutting funds for administrative offices and people falling through the cracks. Yet, all Bernie plans on doing is increasing funding and expansion, which sounds good until you realize he's essentially just passing on more money to the states. The same states cutting the funding in the first place. While the actual checks can't be limited by the states, they can and do limit the amount of people who qualify.
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2018/12/27/thousands-die-waiting-social-security-disability-insurance-appeals/2420836002/
In comparison, Yang's FD is an unconditional $1000/m. SSI max is only $783 and most people only get around $600. SSDI is around $1.1-1.2k on average, and stacks with Yang's FD, which would be more than you would get with SSDI+SSI (1.7-1.8k+ vs. 2.1-2.2k+). You are only eligible for SSDI if you have a proven work history and became disabled later on. If you were always disabled and have no work history, you are stuck with SSI.
https://www.ssa.gov/OACT/COLA/SSI.html
https://www.disabilitysecrets.com/how-much-in-ssd.html
So why can't the FD stack with SSI? If people proposing this were actually on welfare, they'd understand why this is a bad idea. First off, it is not that FD doesn't stack, it's that SSI itself has an income ceiling of 1.7k/m. If you make any more than that, you can no longer receive it. If the FD stacked, that is also the most you would be able to make per month(since the work limits are still in place due to the SSI), making the most they can make a year only ~$21k annually. That means that's the most the disabled would be able to make, which does not sound favorable at all. Second, not only is this justification based in no firsthand experience of actually being on public assistance for your own survival, but no one is even proposing this option to begin with, and too many people are falling into nirvana fallacy levels of thinking for their justification on this matter. https://www.logicallyfallacious.com/tools/lp/Bo/LogicalFallacies/134/Nirvana-Fallacy
If you ask me, if anything, the onus should be on the senators to draft bills that actually fix this problem. They are not though, and Yang is the one actually being vocal about removing these strict work requirements and limits for people and bringing true reform to our broken welfare system; something I'm not hearing from Bernie outside of platitudes, and that are certainly not reflected in his disability rights page:
https://youtu.be/-a5gqWptuac?t=840
Free college? Not working in NYC. If Bernie tries to get his free college through, it will most likely end up in a similar form as college here, where: it only applies to first-time undergrads, you or your household have to be making less than six figures, and I can easily see Bernie accepting such conditions. The problem with this though, is that it essentially makes free college a means-tested program where (going back to the issues of state government), people end up falling through the cracks. Even worse, since the government is the one subsidizing, the price for college will only rise even more because the students not covered will still be forced to pay out of pocket due to "needing college".
https://www.marketwatch.com/story/report-nearly-70-of-students-who-applied-for-new-yorks-free-college-program-were-rejected-2018-08-16
This is literally what made college so expensive in the first place: the government subsidized and increased access to loans for students, leading to an increase in tuition and in turn, administrative costs, since the government was footing the bill for those covered. Those not covered still had to pay absurd costs for their tuition. Bernie is not getting the actual cost of college down, he's just subsidizing it (thus enabling the colleges' price gouging, while Yang is aiming to get the cost down altogether by NOT subsidizing them and forcing them to lower their administrative costs in order to receive continual funding. That way, college will be affordable for everyone who needs it, rather than just being free for some students and not others. As someone who spent 6 years in college, was on the dean's list, and graduated with a double B.A and both GPAs around 3.5, Yang is 100% right here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6YM9wg248k
To me, Bernie’s policies seem to have this continuing pattern of hurting the same people he wanted to help. The $15 min wage is leading to store closings in my neighborhood. It led to a significant cut in hours and my paycheck, and more "on-call" days at my previous job when it initially passed, while some of my coworkers were let-go altogether. There is now a large scanning robot at my local supermarket - the employees let the customers take pictures with it, making it especially good for business. Meanwhile, all the $15/hr has done is make it HARDER to get hired, because bosses don’t see hiring people as worth the risk. Instead, they just double the load of their current employees. Meanwhile, while stores that served the community since I was a little kid are now closing, corporate chains have moved in to take their place. It also pushes people OFF of the welfare receive in the instances where they are properly paid, due to no longer being below the threshold; I know several people this has actually happened to.
https://thecity.nyc/2019/06/minimum-wage-hike-is-net-loss-for-those-whose-benefits-fall.html
According to Bernie's logic though, these are the companies that "deserve" to stay in business since they can afford it - even though they're not paying their employees a "living wage" either. Castro actually had provisions in his plans that forbid unfair scheduling practices, but these seem to be absent in Bernie's minimum wage plan. I have had one Bernie supporter counter that at least now someone can get a second job, but that's even worse. People are already overworked to death, and hiring has become harder on business since it passed. Maybe it works in wealthier areas like Midtown or Williamsburg, but for poorer communities like mine, it's hurting us and is just not a good policy in practice; in no way should it be implemented federally. South Korea now also seems to be learning this the hard way:
https://asia.nikkei.com/Economy/South-Korea-s-minimum-wage-hike-campaign-deflates
https://www.reuters.com/article/southkorea-economy-unemployment/south-korea-jobless-rate-jumps-to-9-year-peak-as-minimum-wage-hike-roils-labour-market-idINKCN1Q12TB
The detrimental effects of the $15/hr aside, making it harder on small businesses is gravely detrimental to minorities. Right now, we have a system where a black man without a record has a tougher time finding a job in both the public and private sector, than a poor white guy with a criminal record. I would feel much safer if minorities and vulnerable groups who could not get the government to listen to their concerns, have a way to be able to start their own businesses and provide for themselves and their families safely, doing something they enjoy, instead of joining gangs or relying on criminal activity out of desperation instead - which is all too common where I live. I will even go as far to say that, while it has already been far more difficult for black people to generate inter-generational wealth (especially due to FDR's New Deal and the redlining that happened as a result of it) compared to white families, white America seemed to have little to no issue with capitalism. Now that it's not working for their kids and grand kids, suddenly the system needs to be torn down altogether and we need to have socialism instead.
For the longest time, women and minorities were banned from public institutions, with the emphasis here on public. Women's colleges and the HBCUs were created as a RESPONSE to this. Now, rather than fixing capitalism and having it work for more people than it ever has before, progressives are more keen on shutting down those avenues that brought about true progress for millions of minorities, all because of this dire commitment to ideological dogma. There are now Bernie supporters unironically claiming Human-Centered Capitalism does not exist, cannot exist, and the system must be destroyed altogether in favor of a more government-driven system. In the same country that left minorities powerless for centuries and sought to remove their power by making them MORE dependent on government programs for survival. If this sounds terribly privileged and dickish to you, welcome to my world.
Additionally, he wants to ban charter schools, and his supporters wholeheartedly encourage this.
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2019/05/17/bernie-sanders-ban-forprofit-charter-schools/3709607002/
https://jacobinmag.com/2019/07/bernie-sanders-charter-schools
Wait, why is this a problem? Isn't he doing this to help black and brown students? He is, but that's not the point. The point is that state public school systems have a long history of failing minority students and Bernie's own privilege (I hate to keep pointing this out but I really have to) is blinding him from seeing how important charter schools are to minority kids. Here in NYC, schools are still heavily zoned, making our schools the most racially segregated in America. In my neighborhood, all the public schools are poorly funded, while the white schools aren't. Furthermore, minority parents DON'T want charters taken away. They are the only schools even giving the kids here actual opportunity at a decent future. There is actually an ongoing fight in my own community right now because De Blasio is also anti-charter and he is not giving these kids any decent options after closing down their schools. Meanwhile, he was caught turning a blind eye towards a high-school grade-fixing and rigging their students' grades, allowing them to pass no matter what:

Are some charters rackets that need to be dealt with? Absolutely. But again, regulation is what's needed and blanketly banning alternative choices and leaving only state-run public institutions and services as an option, only hurts minorities further by taking these alternative choices away from them.
Should billionaires pay their fair share? Of course. I believe we should be attacking crony corporatism and the revolving door though, which Yang plans to do. Bernie just seems to want to fix corruption at the fed level, but even with that, he does not even support ranked choice voting, and his public funding voucher only exists in the form of a tax credit, which is useless for those that can't work.
As for Yang and his proposals, the great thing about Yang is that he seems to care about everyone, whether they’re able to work or not. Even when it comes to his healthcare proposal, he actually includes public transportation included as part of it - something ALL the candidates should be doing as far as I'm concerned. This is the first real plan outside of UBI that seems to deal with a serious obstacle faced specifically by those in poverty that other candidates have given little to no mention to, Bernie included. I live in Southeast, Queens and whenever I travel to Manhattan, it's almost like visiting another country with how much better served it is compared to my neighborhood. Bernie funding infrastructure at the fed level just tells me that the states will prioritize the areas they want to, rather than helping everyone.
Healthcare is not the biggest obstacle to the poor, transport and mobility is. For instance, I have medicaid but rarely go to the doctor, because where I live, the minimum amount Metrocard you can buy is $15-something at the local bodega or check cashing place, compared to the sheer amount of kiosks that litter Manhattan where you can buy one for just $3 or add any amount on to your card to make up the difference. As evidenced by years of infrastructural gentrification of NYC, better infrastructure does not reach everyone and does not equate to easier access.

https://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/07/upshot/transportation-emerges-as-crucial-to-escaping-poverty.html
Right now, my entire family receives less than $1k/m on welfare. With Yang, we would get $3k/m. That’s an unbelievable game-changer for our lives, especially considering we live in NYC and bills are already extremely difficult to pay. The concerns about VAT are nonsense. I wish people fought against sales taxes as hard as I see them railing against the VAT. Just last year, De Blasio passed an internet tax shortly before running for president with little opposition; it now costs an additional dollar or more to buy anything online. I've had to pass on lunch while running errands at times, simply because I couldn't cover the sales tax at the fast food places around here. Yang's VAT is not isolated like sales taxes are; it comes alongside the FD. This not only covers the VAT itself, but also the taxes and fees that make it difficult for us to get things we need now. It is a lifetime payout and does not need to be continually renewed like current welfare.

https://twitter.com/RogueSocialWrkstatus/1198040525061971969
As for M4A, if the government can’t offer better insurance, then they shouldn’t be removing that choice from other people, especially those most vulnerable to abuse from the government. Right now, the biggest issue is people being denied treatment based on the insurance they have. If it is universal, that is no longer an issue.
Right now, it seems like he's committing the same mistakes towards the poor that we’ve been doing for decades now. When it comes to what gov considers “basic healthcare”, it’s abysmal. Medicaid is subsidized private, but the state still allows what’s provided. I want to know that what the government is offering me is worth having only Berniecare, and for me, as his bill is now, it isn’t. Now, I am not against it, but it’s not enough to actually help those who are poor.
For me, Yang’s plan is immediately better. He’s actually dissecting and attacking the roadblocks the poor go through in regards to medicare at every level, and isn’t just eliminating private and focusing on eliminating it as if it makes everything better, while treating everything else as an afterthought. Again, he is even covering public transit costs with his proposal, something that still makes it hard for me to visit a doctor despite having medicaid. As a bonus, it means I wouldn’t even have to use my UBI on transportation for doctors’ visits.
History in the U.S has proven eliminating private choices never works. We’re not European countries. We’re the size of a continent and we’re a highly heterogeneous, diverse population. If you don’t think for a second that the government won’t use that to its advantage, then I don’t know what to say; it’s not something I can afford to risk in my position. Meanwhile, I see progressives continuing to praise and defend and push for MORE only public options, despite how broken public services already are, just because of their own ideal of how it should be. I only wish they knew how out of touch this comes across as.
Having the same program as European nations =/= same quality as European nations. We are not Europe and we are not Canada. Those countries don't have nearly the amount of history nor issues with poverty AND race-related caste systems that America does. Moreover, millions of people will be losing their insurance jobs, because due to barriers in application at the state level, not everyone is eligible for a gov job regardless of what Bernie says. It’s not that I’m against M4A(I’m not). There’s just so many things wrong with the way he is specifically going about it and eliminating duplicative private as an option.
Banning private isn’t necessary. We should be attacking the core issues of why private isn’t working here, despite working in places like Switzerland, Taiwan, Singapore, Australia, etc. If the problem isn’t specifically private healthcare, then we shouldn’t be attacking that. Rather, we should be attacking the sheer amount of corruption and incentives for corruption in our current private healthcare market AS WELL as the differences in doctors' licensing requirements and healthcare among states (again, a state government issue).
Outside of rhetoric, I am sorry, but Bernie really doesn’t seem to actually be championing the poor in any tangible way outside of voting on bills. He is horribly weak on any topic concerning vulnerable groups and that aren't strictly related to corruption or class struggle. Being a bigot is neither illegal nor corrupt, and addressing those issues will not fix bigotry. I really do appreciate that Yang actually recognizes this in his proposals and the utmost importance in subverting the power of states rights by directly giving money to people instead of having it trickle down to the states instead.
Bernie has voted on some good and some not so good things, just like all the other senators. For all the good he has voted on, he has also voted: against the Amber Alert system, against legalizing gay marriage and favoring leaving it to the states(again, state gov), for the 1994 Crime Bill, and for Trump's SESTA/FOSTA bill that is anti-sex work. If you were wondering why so many black supporters of Biden, Warren, Kamala, are so wary and even vitriolic of Bernie and his supporters (and by extension Yang who they don't trust, due to having surface similarities with Bernie), well now you know why; he does not even support any means of reparations, and continues to give tone deaf reasons for why. Whether you agree with reparations or not, the answer he gives here is ridiculous, and like Buttigieg, continues to tie in poverty in minority communities with lack of education, all while failing to see WHY they are poor in the first place - they lack money and capital because our very own system of government in the U.S made it difficult to accumulate that. His plan is also more just a criminal justice reform plan, and while that will help minorities in the system, I think we should be more focused on having less minorities go down the criminal route in the first place. Like his disability rights page, he simply pivots back to the FJG and $15 min wage as economic solutions for minorities.

Black Vermonters describing how Bernie constantly downplayed and ignored their issues: https://www.thedailybeast.com/vermonts-black-leaders-we-were-invisible-to-bernie-sanders
Again, all his solutions lead back to ultimately leaving the execution of these programs in the hands of the states, and giving them the final say in how they're actually handled at the ground level.
Actions speak louder than words, and from what I’ve seen firsthand, the actual actions he’s taken is currently hurting communities like mine more than helping them. So yeah, that's it. Thanks for taking the time out to listen. I'll try to update, add links, etc. as time goes by.
EDIT: Wow! Thank you so much for the gold and silver!! WHOA! PLATINUM AND ALL THE OTHER STUFF! THANK YOU!! 🙏🏾❤️

/hockey stands with BLM and the fight against racism

Though it shouldn't be a surprise with the multitude of threads from players and organizations alike filling /hockey and compiled just down below, we did want to make it explicit that /hockey has and will continue to fight against racism in all its forms.
We think the murder of George Floyd by the hands of police is abhorrent. We will continue to lift the voices of the hockey community that speak up against racism by ensuring their posts make it to /hockey for those to read.
And we will continue to enforce and remove any comments or racist remarks as well as all bigotry, sexism and xenophobia.
For a list of ways to donate, get involved or see how you can be a part of #BLM please follow this fantastic link: https://www.timeout.com/things-to-do/how-to-support-black-lives-matter
