Charlotte Worried about stalled talks with Panthers

207 posts in this topic

Thanks for serving Anybodyhome, I appreciate it.

No, it's not one or the other, there are far more choices than the 2 broad strokes you swiped. And please don't presume to know anything about me until you've had the opportunity to meet and get to know me. I would certainly afford you that same consideration.

Why shouldnt I presume? You want me to understand things from your perspective so shouldnt I be presuming? Does it make you feel lesser when youre transparent or isnt a good thing that someone understands you or is at least trying. . . . and I dont want you to afford me anything though I appreciate you saying so. You can feel free to presume I wear women's underwear as long as you answer the question Im asking you :)

The government serves at the convenience and at the mercy of the majority who elected them.

How is that statement different than "The Government serves the individual"? please help me understand the difference.

If the government. . . serves. . . . . "the majority who elected them" who are comprised of. . . . individuals.

There should be no government "agenda" as much as there is the people's "agenda" since one is supposed to dictate the other.

My agenda? Really? I'm growing older and after a lengthy military career and recently retiring from a second career, my "agenda" is rather simple- to live the remainder of my days in the comfortable life I built for myself. I'm and economic moderate and a social Democrat while at the same time believing we have to maintain a superior military to protect the importing infrastructure of the society we've become, although I would prefer more of an isolationist trade stance, much like Australia.

Geez, you say the word agenda like its a dirty word.

I mean, I think government better have an agenda or we're all fugged heheheh. It'd be nice if they had a game plan for running things. "Agenda" is just a easy way for me to ask "What do you want for us? as America. . what do you want to accomplish?"

"Live the remainder of your days..." yes I get that, theres more going on than that though, right? Not everyone is well in this country. Many people are hurting and need help right now. How should we address it?

1) Vote with the philosophy of "vote for whats best for you" and you'll be properly represented?

or 2) Vote based on what you think would be good for the country as a whole?

I cant help be intuitive, its what I do. I calculate, I predict. That what I am, I dont know why people get so easily offended by that. . . or is it the name? maybe its the Razeyfingers name. . . maybe I should rename myself to SnuggleBunnys. . . . doesnt have the same kick though. :)

Again, thank you for serving, sir.

Def some dumb fugs in Charlotte. In 7 years we will prob be watching our panthers go to the playoffs but in LA or Utah.

I didn't read the entire (any) thread because zero fuggs were given.

Don't sweat it bro, we ain't going nowhere.

I may not be the smartest guy in the world but I think I have the most logical solution here,

During only the football season, raise hotel and food taxes at rates high enough to where us fans can pick up this bill! We want it the. Lets keep it! No need to punish the non football fans year round, even though they benefit greatly from an NFL team in their backyard

This would be a nightmare for local businesses and hotels. Simply unworkable.

Why? The administrative inconvenience beats the possibility of losing the Panthers! I come from Va at least twice each season and end up spending no less than 1200 each trip, so assuming there is quite a few more like me then businesses want to keep that going

I hope you're including ticket cost into that...even then...that's too much

Let's just face it the Panthers are going to go the way of the hornet's because of politics. But hey we can all pull for the Redskins again!

Interesting idea but a 1% tax on food an beverage is much simpler...

I for one am not about to fork over an extra $.04 for my pint of Guinness just so fat cat JR can save himself a few hundred million.
