If your work sends you home for a year with total pay would you see it as punishment?
If my career had a 5-7 year window, and while in my prime, I was given a one year pay day and then sat for a year while my name was maligned and my skills went unused, yes, I would see that as punishment.
Whether she sometimes has valid points or not, when the majority of them are invalid then she's being destructive. Same as Dr. Oz.
This is not promoting 'awareness of what we eat' it's promoting paranoia and the same sort of anti-science sentiment behind anti-vaxxers and anti-gmoers. It would be promoting awareness if she simply listed these ingredients, what they are, what they are used for. She doesn't do that, she approaches everything as if all ingredients with more than 2 syllables are bad, and worthy of crusading against.
Since when does cashing in on fear mongering = activism?
Remember the guy that we signed from the Colts I think, and he retired before the season started and gave back his signing bonus? We haven't had good luck with FA linemen toying with the idea of retirement...
I think we are pretty close to a Super Bowl. We've got a great, young core, we're finally getting out of cap hell, we're in a division that's a complete mess(something the Pats benefit from EVERY YEAR). We're only a couple of pieces away from being a solid contender for years.
Someone at work gave me 4 100-level seats to the last game vs. the Bucs. It was plenty loud, and everyone stood up when the defense was on the field. Everyone was nice and stayed until the end of the game.
I think some people just like to bitch about the 'wine and cheesers' because it makes them feel better or superior or something. I don't know. I had season tickets for years and never saw anyone kicked out or asked to sit down because of cheering too loud.
one of my wife's friends from the fundamentalist instead-of-college academy in texas she attended recently posting the following quote by christian author mark batterson: "intellectual analysis always results in spiritual paralysis."
it's so true.
Or as the my tour guide at the Vatican would say, every time I rolled my eyes at his recounting of one of dozens of popes duping his followers into giving up land, money, etc. by telling them he'd had a vision from God..."Well, you must have faith!"
Anyone who thinks Scientology is the craziest religion has never been to the Vatican.
