#2910785 Who was it that told me the meatloaf at Tavern on the Tracks was good?

Never liked meatloaf. I always see thrown up cat food when I see it.

Well then in that case we all better just lay down and let them have their way with us.

 

I don't want that, but I'm afraid it has already happened.   Before we rise up, we'd have to stop arguing over things like same sex marriage, weed legalization, race relations, religious nonsense,  and finally realize what the true divide is that is pushing us away from each other which is shown on those graphs in this thread.

Until I started posting here, I had never heard of this and still find it very strange. Why would you go to another teams game all the time in your teams jersey? I mean I understand if you want to see the occasional live football game so you go to the local teams game, but they have people with Panther season tickets doing this. A lot of times these people are at the Panthers game while their team plays at same time, why wouldn't you want to watch your own team play on TV at home or at a local sports bar with fans of same team? It makes sense if it's playoffs or SB and your team is eliminated, but otherwise, Just so strange!

 

It's actually pretty simple.  Charlotte is a huge melting pot of people.  Being the #2 banking city in America brings a lot of people down here from up North, and with them, their teams.  Other jobs have done the same, not to mention people flocking to the triangle area for jobs as well.  Less taxes, less cost of living, and a booming economy brought down tons of people.   I know some real estate agents and half their clients are from NY.  They inherit their parents' house and sell it for a good sum then buy a bigger and nicer house in NC for half the money as the one they sold.    That, combined with the fact that before the Panthers came around people in this area were Redskins and Steelers fans and still hang onto their old teams.  

 

It's a catch-22, on one hand you want all Panthers fans there, but on the other if we weren't a melting pot there is a good change we wouldn't even have sports teams.   Our best bet is the children of those fans become Panthers fans from growing up here.  It'll take time.  Not having back to back winning seasons also hurts the growth.

That's nothing.  Take a ride in rush hour traffic with my wife and you'll learn what the term adrenaline rush means.




#2901423 My last shot of Steve Smith as a Panther....

I hope Thomas Davis lays him out lol.  You know a good bit of our defensive players can't wait to take him on in a real game.

You won't get 6mb, you'll get something in between probably 3-6mb I bet.  That's pushing it if you want to stream Netflix in HD glory.  Not to mention if you have other people using the connection.   Also, I'm pretty sure the actual television feed is through that 6mb connection too.  I'd probably want at least 15-20MB at the min.




#2901016 Rumors the Hornets might be interested in Josh Smith

Smith is someone that is awesome when playing NBA2k14 but when he's on your team and you have to watch him each game, he drives you crazy.

Body cams should be mandatory now.  They aren't super expensive anymore.  Also more recording at 360 around a cop vehicle too.  Keep everyone in check.




#2891439 Reparations for black descendants of the slaves

Enrollment in 4 year college in 2013

 

8.2 million in public

5.6 million in private schools

 

$10,000 per year = 8.2 million in 4 year college = $8.2 Billion

 

Defense Budget in 2011 was $673billion

 

People don't realize that it really wouldn't cost that much (in the grand scheme) to pay for free education.  The positive effects to our country would be worth way more than $8.2 billion in the long run.   People are scared of socialism though.




#2889883 Arm yourselves

Posted by Zaximus on 14 August 2014 - 08:13 AM

Terrible situation.

 

Cops are definitely acting hasty and killing black males when there could have been a better choice.   I have no doubt some of them are racist, but I think a lot of it comes from fear and stereotypes.

 

Unfortunately there are groups of black males that keep killing each other in the streets and re-enforcing stereotypes.  Stereotypes that manifest in cops probably more than any of us, especially the ones patrolling high crime black neighborhoods.  They are probably making choices based on fear and that is never a good thing, because that ends in shoot first.   They need to make better choices, and I'm not defending cops, but I also don't know what is going on in their minds.

 

So imo, the issue has a bunch of sides to it.  We need black leaders to start stepping up with black-on-black violence is happening in the streets and condoning it.   Rev Jackson, Al Sharpton, etc.  Don't just wait till a black person is wronged, but also start working on stopping this crime in the streets.   That combined with helping cops make better choices could start changing things.   I know there are bad seeds with cops and they are straight up just racists, but for the others. 

 

Let's not lie and say stereotypes don't influence into our decisions and life.   Everyone of us believes in or is affected by them at some point.
