  1. Woke “Anti-Racism” is racism. The fact I have to declare it makes me miss my liberal friends. The progressives eliminated those folks at the same time they took out President Lincoln and other historical figures that don’t meet their perfect 2022 ideals. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. I take solace that most Europeans, Asians and other non-English speakers see this as one American import they don’t want. This poison is largely constrained to the English speaking world. I don’t see anyone else interested it. it’s astonishing to me to see the left go from marching for free speech to cancelling dissenting opinions in less than a generation. Even Alan Dershowitz as a former ACLU head is now denounced as a heretic in this new non-liberal religion. it’s poison. Poison! Believe me now or experience it for yourself when they come for you later. I’ll gladly watch from a safe distance… about 3,942 miles to be exact.
  2. I do not financially support any woke institutions. I do not fund DEI or ESG. I made the conscious effort to stop giving to UA, SUNY or any other institution, other than maybe Hillsdale College, any financial support. $0 This American madness into woke ideology started me down the road to pursuing French/EU citizenship three years ago. It is illegal in France to even produce government reports on race, ethnicity or religion. While the US is reverting to a caste system and ditching meritocracy, France remembers the dangers that led to WW2. Let me know how your woke insanity works out for you. Woke = Marxist Poison
  3. Many parts of this country have fallen into significant disrepair and UA is no different. I wouldn’t send any of my 3 girls to UA. I honestly don’t think it’s worth the tuition. This institution abandoned meritocracy and embraced all things woke. The Chinese are laughing at America. They churn out engineers and we churn out “studies” majors who only know they are owed a living because of their group identity. UA’s rating is appropriately well deserved crap. The best education is to be found in Asia… even in communist China where meritocracy still means something. I need a safe space and a lama (and for you to pay my college debt)
  4. https://wibx950.com/albany-plummets-in-national-university-rankings/ 1) How did UA fall so far behind? 2) I like State Rep Fitzpatrick’s idea of “University of New York”. Nobody outside New York knows what the hell a SUNY is anyway
  5. This makes no sense. This genius is wasting away in jail as China eats our lunch. Smart
  6. Removing this post. Don’t want powerless marginalized communities to use the full power of government and commerce to attack me… because powerless communities?!? I’ll enjoy my free speech in a locked closet.
  7. Awful. I’ve dreaded this outcome for 20+ years. At the risk of being repetitive of my prior comments over the years, UAlbany has been on a decline since we lost the Nano College. There are so many indicators documenting the decline… the decline is NOT an accident. UAlbany’s decline is intentional. I remember when this school was often interchanged with the other SUNY centers. We are now Cal State to their UC. Maybe that was the point of it all. Creating a second tier
  8. I woke up this morning to see this at the top of my Google portal page. I didn’t search for it as it was just defaulted in. Not sure if it was specific to me or just their news stream https://sports.yahoo.com/texas-offers-no-9-overall-021843995.html
  9. In point of fact the publisher was pulling the copies of the Dr Seuss in question and would no longer be selling them. “Mr Potato Head” would in fact no longer exist. It would be rebranded so it does not exist. If anyone here questioned this madness at work we would be fired... unless you have progressive privilege. As an army brat born and raised mostly on military installations in Germany I visited many of these early critical race theory and cancel culture institutions in Germany such as Dachau. I’ve been there many times as it was just outside of many US installations in Munich. Additionally my grandfather spent 5 years in an institution run by these well meaning (Progressives of the day) Democratic National Socialists of Germany so I know this story all too well. Start small progressives with your canceling speech and lean forward. ”and then they came for me” Mr Blorp. When do you come for me?
  10. The first victims of cancel culture but NOT the last Mr Potato Head Uncle Bens Land ‘O Lakes Huckleberry Fin Dr Seuss Clarence Thomas 75 million people who voted ‘wrong’ ... “and then they came for me” (if anyone remembers actual history you’ll know this quote) When does Ford drop the Lincoln brand? When is Washington State renamed? When is religion too problematic? I look forward to the coming age of the Communist Chinese. For all their many many faults at least wokeism isn’t one of them. I’d rather live under a Xi than AOC.
  11. Cancel culture Colonial Quad is next. It’ll change to murderous imperial colonizer quad. What happens when the number of people who hate this country outnumber those who love it? I guess we’ll find out. I’ve applied for French citizenship so I have an escape hatch to an EU country... maybe there is a country where the citizens are still patriotic?
  12. I stopped watching all sports. When athletic events turned into political rallies I was done. I also stopped all donations to my alma mater. I spend my Saturdays with my young kids. TV is limited to my kids shows. I’ve taken to day trading as a hobby. This is my first time back to BPF site in months.
  13. Maslow's hierarchy of needs... You’ve got too much time and money if BLM is your priority. Or worse yet taking pained efforts to splice words to tack on “too” because your marketing effort is offending instead of uniting. My mother grew up in war torn Europe. Her father in a POW camp. No food. No toys for the kids. Nothing. Bombs falling from the skies. What a testament to how affluent and easy our lives are if we have time to argue and fight over words. I wish for the days when we were poor and spent 12 hour days at work. No time for such luxuries
  14. Slap a roof on it and we have our field house 👍
  15. I’m not sure what is so hard for the Northeast to have a single budget friendly football FBS conference? Clearly with UMASS, UCONN and Army adrift and Buffalo, Temple and parts of the CAA available why something can’t be pieced together. There is clearly a need! I’m not talking about the SEC or BIG10. A MAC level conference with a Northeast footprint makes sense. I understand it’s probably a pipe dream but I don’t understand why. Why is the Northeast so damn dysfunctional?
  16. Our own Northeast Football FBS Conference
  17. I tweeted Susan Herbst, Gov Cuomo, UConn, UMASS and others lobbying for a Northeast cost containment football only conference. The Northeast seems to really have a need. 2 independents and several possible upgrade potentials in the CAA. Just need some damn leadership to make it happen!
  18. I will NOT withhold funds for the football program specifically or athletics generally. It’s too important to me and posses risk in crazy liberal New York. They’ll just ax the damn program. That said I give $0 to this university generally or any university. Just athletics. These universities are too screwed up to support their crap.
  19. Shouldn’t we sell out a home opener? Meaning did we in prior years?
  20. I had 15 tickets for the game. 12 if us showed so I ate the other 3 tickets. Tailgating was a lot of fun but very thinly attended. A few people attended toward the end. We started tailgating at 4. My uncle rolled in with catering level service so props to him. Same experience for the game. I thought attendance was light at first but by the first beer run there was a line. That could be because a single worker was manning the bar. The weather was awesome. The play on the field was poor. Based on prior experience I’d say it was a B- experience. Part of my attendance is to be a foundation. If people like me do not attend why should others from the “Bubba Alumni” as James Carvel referred to non LSU grad fans of the program. It’s my annual trip. Glad I did it. Lots of fun but some missed opportunities by the University. I wanted to buy anything marked UA and it was challenging to do at times.
  21. My donations are squarely tied to football. Too much nonsense happening at colleges for me to fund the university or academics. Not sure I’d follow UA much without it.
