#867839 Please think about me...

I'm really sorry. My mother is battling the same kinds of glaucoma problems albeit she is in her 60s and recently had surgery.

As some have said, Marijuana actually does help problems like this although you may be against drugs.

One of my biggest hopes when we all witnessed the Obamanation two years ago was that his presidency would affect the way young African American men view themselves. Charles Barkley said in a Playboy interview that it would change things forever in that regard.

That's turrable

#864429 America - The $30k Millionaire

Posted by hepcat on 10 November 2010 - 09:06 AM

Image. It's what America is all about. From what our media portrays to how people live their lives, America is more about presenting an image than anything else.

Take for example, a guy who makes $30 grand a year. This guy is what I like to call, a "Thirty Thousand Dollar Millionaire". This guy has a small income, but he tries to live like he's a millionaire. He drives a BMW, buys the newest most stylish clothes, drops big dollars in front of his friends, and is most likely digging himself deep into debt to keep up appearances. Ever had a friend like this?

You've got a "friend" like this called the United States Government. America, so hell bent on keeping up the appearance of luxury, privilage and stature, that we are so far in debt we might never come out of it barring a horrendous collapse of the system. Why is it okay for our government to ignore all virtues of fiscal responsibility when we as individuals would have creditors breaking down our doors and repossessing our possessions if we can't pay off our debts - keep putting up that image.

We're in debt for one simple reason - a lack of accountability and basic reason. My father always taught me "Don't spend money you don't have." America apparently forgot our founding father's advice. We'll gladly spend money we don't have! It doesn't matter why we did it - to invade Iraq, to reform healthcare, or to "save" the economy. The fact remains we're in no better shape than when the economic crisis began, or dating back to the days America had a budget SURPLUS (man who remembers those days).

There isn't a "debtors prison" anymore, but the hassles of being deep in debt are undeniable. Defaulting on a large deficit can be humliating and arduous, and the United States has left itself little options for the future. All other problems aside, we tend to ignore the fact that we are so deeply in debt that sooner or later, creditors are going to want to be paid. And they may not be so nice.

For now, I'm just going to liken America to that arrogant jackass that comes out on a Friday night, drives a beemer and buys jager bombs for all the pretty ladies in the bar, but only makes 30 grand a year. Have fun in the poor house 10 years from now.

#849843 The Official Huddle Beer Thread

Posted by hepcat on 02 November 2010 - 09:46 PM

French Broad and Caggie are both out of Asheville. The Caggie comes in big .5 gallon glass jugs that look cool as hell too. Both make REALLY good beers, especially French Broad.

Blowing Rock is out of Boone and they make a pretty good brew also.


French Broad, Asheville Brewing Company, Highland, Pisgah, Craggie, The Wedge...I could go on and on. Really spoiled here in Asheville, we won Beer City USA 2010, beating out Portland, OR.

#836542 Free Album

Posted by hepcat on 27 October 2010 - 10:27 AM

Giving away my old band's album for download. Well actually it's a "name your price" album, which means if you want to pay for it, you can. But who the hell is going to do that.

We broke up back in July and the album remained unreleased. I waited a few months to see if we'd get back together or what, but doesn't look likely. So just to get the music out there, it's free!

Took an extra stroll on my way to the bathroom around the desks of people who set their cellphones to full blast on an obnoxious ringtone.

Enjoy my obnoxious odors, annoying bastards. Ever heard of VIBRATE?

#831880 More panthers fans were here for fan fest

Posted by hepcat on 25 October 2010 - 09:47 AM

Such BS ... you don't like it, don't buy tickets and don't go. Nobody's holding a gun to your head.

BS? Were you at the game cheering him for putting an 0-5 team on the field? I didn't go to the game and I wouldn't spend a cent on it. I've been to at least one or two games every year since '04 with the exception of '07 and I have no plans to see them in the near future. It's pure capitalism. Put out a shoddy product and people get pissed. If Richardson wants to keep making money off his creation (which is what it's all about in America) he'd better take the boos from the people who buy tickets seriously. Winning makes money. You don't get paid for "good vibes" despite what 1967 told you.

Toyota analogy stands.

and edit: Charlotte has already shown they'll run a team out of town over a greedy owner.

Govt ploy to keep the public calm. Either way, I don't think the world ends. I hope aliens make first contact tho

#823235 Let's all insult each other over football.

Posted by hepcat on 20 October 2010 - 08:32 AM

I think it's great how posters here dish out negative and insulting comments like it's some kind of contest to act like a know-it-all jackass. You all realize that this is a forum dedicated to discussing big sweaty millionaire dudes that romp around on a grassy field chasing an oblonged shapened leather ball once a week for less than half the year. If you believe this to be a reason to expell your built up negative energy...I'd reccomend pulling over on the road of life and reconsidering your beliefs.

BTW Fantasy Football is some kind of strange gay porn I was recently informed.

Just get some perspective, please.

#823195 Bleacher Report: "Fox fired a shot over the bow at team owner, jerry Rich...

Posted by hepcat on 20 October 2010 - 07:42 AM

Didn't the Chargers do something like that? (I still agree with you though)

Correct answer. Fox/This team was exposed in '05 playoffs and '06. Should have fired before our star players started quitting on the team :ciappa:
