    But the therapist has done nothing for your misguided affection for Utes and Blackhawks.

    Probably the same way you got over the Matt Holliday trade. Just stopped watching.

    Probably not the best thread for this. But it sounds like David Bokovoy, a favorite scriptorian of many a progmo, is not much of a MOTCOJCOLDS anymore.

    Yeah, I noticed that the other day. That's a shame. I used to follow him on social media but got turned off 2-3 years ago and put an end to that. I got tired of the shirtless selfies and the endless stream of SJW/woke posts. And every now and then he would post things were jaw-dropping dumb. Like how he didn't feel safe on the BYU campus.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    If I had to guess which cast member was gay, probably wouldn't have guessed him.

    Isn't he the dude in the most recent BYU ad? It will be interesting to see of they choose not to run any of those during the game tomorrow, or if they run something different instead.

    It was last year's ad, but I think they started re-running it because the unicorn ad was so horrific.

    I guess it's a bit of irony that his ad turns out to be more gay than the unicorn one.

    I don't mean to go all MPFunk on this - but it will be interesting to see BYU's approach is to this all things considered. They say they're OK with gay dudes who are living the law of chastity. So - are they? Or do they pull the day dude ad?

    Not a huge deal - I'm just curious.

    I understand BYU discourages being curious about such things.

Instead of it taking over an hour for a session (have to drive to the office/drive back) a 1-hour therapy session is an hour as we don't even have to leave the house. By the way, both therapists are LCSW's and mine has completed his Ph.D.

    I wonder if some of the solution to this in smaller cities, or even larger cities, is for universities to contract with Skype therapists or even help students be aware of these options.
    I'm glad teletherapy works for you, but I'm not a fan of it yet. Also, I'm fairly certain Skype is not HIPAA compliant.

    Has this already been posted?

    Ammon Bundy breaks with Trump on anti-migrant rhetoric: ‘It’s all fear-based’

    On Tuesday night, an unlikely critic took President Trump to task for his comments portraying members of the migrant caravan now massed in Tijuana as “criminals” and “gang members.” In a video posted on Facebook, Ammon Bundy, the anti-government militia leader, pushed back against Trump’s heated rhetoric.

    “He has basically called them all criminals and said they’re not coming in here. It seems that there’s been this group stereotype,” Bundy said in a 17-minute clip. “But what about those who have come here for reasons of need? . . . What about the fathers, the mothers, the children, who have come here and are willing to go through the process to apply for asylum so they can come into this country and benefit from not having to be oppressed continually by criminals?"

    Along with his father, Cliven, and brother, Ryan, Bundy became an ascendant figure on the right after a long-standing land dispute with federal authorities sparked an armed standoff at the family ranch in Nevada in 2014. Since then, the Bundys have regularly clashed with the government both inside and outside the courtroom, making them figureheads of the anti-Washington energy that also propelled Trump to the White House.

    But Bundy’s message Tuesday may be another sign that Trump’s border policy is isolating him from many who are usually fully tuned in to his messaging.

    “It’s all fear-based, and frankly it’s based upon selfishness — ‘I’m going to lose something by them coming in,’ ” Bundy said of the anti-migrant rhetoric. “I think that’s incorrect. But also to base your arguments or your motives or your actions upon fear is a very dangerous thing to do.”

    There is an explicit overlap between the land battles fought by Bundy and his followers and Trump.

    In January 2016, Bundy and other militia members rallied around Dwight and Steven Hammond, a father and son who were jailed by federal authorities on arson charges stemming from a dispute over their Oregon ranch. In response, Bundy and his group led a 41-day occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The standoff came to a head when Robert “LaVoy” Finicum was killed by law enforcement at the refuge on Jan. 26, 2016. Bundy was later acquitted by a jury for his role in the occupation...



    In his video Tuesday night, Ammon Bundy said he attempted to do his own research on the border to separate fact from fiction.

    “I tried to go outside of the media, both in this case the media from the conservative side and the media from the liberal side because I do not believe either one of them are telling the truth,” he said. “On the liberal side, you have, ‘Oh, we’ve got to let them in.’ . . . Then, you have the conservative side of it that has it they’re here because they’ve been sent by the U.N. or they’re being paid by George Soros, they’re a bunch of terrorists. I have found that is a bunch of garbage, too.”

    Bundy acknowledged that among the “thousands” of migrants in the caravan, there are some that will “act like criminals.” But he argued the majority of the people are fleeing violence in countries like Honduras. “Then, they come to the border, and they have a right — a legal right — to apply to come into this country,” he argued. “Each one of them should be considered individually.”

    The anchor behind Bundy’s feelings about the border stem from what he calls the responsibility of Americans in this “Christian nation.” The Bundy family’s personal brand of Mormonism mingles the faith with an individualistic interpretation of the U.S. Constitution, a fusing of church and state that, they claim, justifies their battles against the federal government.

    “I have been frankly surprised, disappointed and even at times disgusted [by] the amount of people who profess to be Christians but will not truly adhere to what Christ said,” he said.

    Bundy also said his past comments in favor of the migrants had triggered negative feedback, “negative to the point where several people wished me dead,” he explained. But he remained steadfast in his opinion.

    “These are people, the majority of them need help,” Bundy said. “There is a possibility of danger with some of them, they need to be vetted. And then they need to be brought in here and added to this great, wonderful country.”

    I realize he turned down the BYU coaching job, but this seems awfully spiteful and mean spirited. I wonder how many wins this costs Navy over the next seven years?

    This is a friend from high school. He leaves behind a wife and 6 daughters. Brad was pretty much the nicest guy you've ever met. Always laughing and never missing an opportunity to make a joke. He will be missed.

    Very sad.

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    At Church yesterday I was talking to the Branch President and he mentioned that this was his cousin. Very sad. Sounds like the dad who had pretty much retired will have to come back to work full time at the pharmacy to support the family.

    I hadn't really given much thought to all the post-death financial details, but I was hoping Brad had a fat life insurance policy in place. If his dad is going to have to go back to work to support the family, that's probably not the case. Here's a little piece KSL did on Brad this past weekend:

    The guy he was with that survived is a close friend of mine from high school. He is the one who jumped up on his sled and put his hand in the air so he was able to dig himself out. Such a sad story.
