Ahh ok. I'd rather not, but it beats a life of misery being stuck with a white wife.

How long ago did engine9 post? I remember Joe Nedney used to post here with a similar name.

You're trying to bring him back aren't you?

Yeah, but It would take 8000 redwoods to print a trillion dollar bill, so I say it's worth it.

this is the last off topic thing I'll post itt:

Speaking as a conservative former republican who voted for W in 2000, if the Republicans wanted respect they would have hammered W for his fukkups instead of defending them. W was SO inept and screwed us up SO much that a large group of people that defended him, apologized for his actions, and made excuses for what happened under his leadership are going to have to do some damage control before they have any credibility. Sadly, the cause behind all of these protests is noble. It's correct. It's right and it's just. However, as a largely Republican protest, it's 5 or 6 years too fuging late. When the story is told, Iraq will cost us in total as much or more than the Banking corruption. Republicans defended that. It was BS from the beginning. If I could sense that it was BS, what was the rest of the world thinking? It was SHART!!! The Iraq war was shart. The whole thing. The lame brains that defended at it's origin deserve every bit of ridicule they get, even though at this point they all say "I never defended it." W may have been the result of a rise in Republican party dominance, but his administration's complete and total ineptitude blew that all away like pushing all your chips to the center of the table when all you have is 8 high.

Part of me would like to grieve for the republican party, but its a small part. They screwed real conservatives over, they made real conservatives out to be racists, idiots, populists, and anything else you can imagine that would basically degrade a group of people. They came up with Freedom Fries. They shouted "Why do you hate America?" I hope they fail. I hope they fail and I hope they die.

I never could figure out why the Dems ran such a caricature idiot almost-Bush as John Kerry. Now I know. Kerry was an idiot and a near-beer Bush. His loss solidified W's final 4 years of ineptitude and pushed the pendulum to the right even further than has ever been imagined. That set us up for a swift left-ward swing (which surprisingly we haven't really seen yet, and hopefully never will) and an overall hatred of conservatives. Now, thanks to the W Republicans, conservatives are bigots/traitors/idiots to the lowest common denominator bloggers/forum-posters on the left.

I don't like it, it's not right at all, but after 8 years of W and the Republicans, I sadly understand. That doesn't mean that the LCD lefties are going to be free from the subjection (speaking strictly in regards to the forum haunters) of logical thought, but it DOES mean that occurrences like the tea parties are going to be nearly impossible to defend by moderate conservatives.

The right made it's bed, and it looks pretty stupid throwing 5-years-late tea parties.

So much so that he was willing to rationalize the trade of Kony Ealy to the Patriots, which essentially netted him a second-round pick eight slots higher than the third-round pick they included in the swap. "It's a heavy draft and it was an opportunity for us to move up. To you guys, eight spots doesn't seem like much. But to me, it's gold," Gettleman said, via the Charlotte Observer.   Scout's Notebook: Cam must evolve as QB   Free Agency's biggest unanswered storylines   Harrison: All-Under-25 Team   Brandt: Best second-round picks since '12   MJD: Ranking the '17 RB prospects   Players who won free agency   Brooks: Peterson 'just another' RB now   Schein: Each division's favorite, top contender   Rosenthal Why is everyone ignoring Big Ben?   Scouting Report/team fits: Malik Hooker He added: "You've got to give up something to get something. You're not fooling anybody anymore. There's too much film available. We just wanted to move up and get another second-round pick. I think it gives us more flexibility." This was, on the front end, a nice way for Gettleman to distance himself from Ealy without criticizing the dynamic former second-round pick, though it does put the fearless general manager in a precarious position. Rationalizing a trade to move up eight slots suggests there is someone in particular who you are targeting and expect to be there. At the least, it suggests that one of a few people you hope are there can contribute right away significantly. Ealy was not a perfect player, but his ability to get to the quarterback was undeniable. If the Panthers had won Super Bowl 50, there's a chance Ealy would have been named MVP despite playing just a handful of snaps. Carolina already got rid of one exceptional homegrown defensive talent in Josh Norman last year and could see Ealy come back to bite them inside the Patriots' versatile front. Of course, Gettleman isn't afraid of what anyone thinks and has done a nice job getting the Panthers under control since taking over the gig in 2013. He has plenty of equity built up with the Panthers' fan base, but a home run with that second-round pick couldn't hurt. "
