In Topic: Art Pope Stepping Down

So he buys the position of budget director. Presides over a debacle of a battle over raising teacher pay to well below average... (35th?) That ultimately still cut education spending? Then steps down to take a position as head of UNC System? Am I getting this right?

Oy vey!

In Topic: Should have known the law - or batpoo crazy DA?

This is like when Plaxico went to jail for so long, granted he was being stupid but he got sent away because of license issues.

Would you feel any different if the bullet had hit someone else? Or is it only a non issue because the bullet that he unintentionally fired due to gross negligence happened to lodge in his own leg?

Dude was carrying a loaded handgun, illegally, in a crowded public space, in the waistband of mother fuging sweatpants.

As far as this case, when you are carrying an object whose sole purpose is to maim, injure, and kill, ignorance should never be tolerated. I'm not saying she deserves 10 years, mandatory minimums are, as others have stated in this thread, abject corruptions of justice. But, should she get clemency? fug no!

A slap on the wrist should not be an option for gun crimes. If you are allowed to carry a firearm, you should be held to a higher legal standard.

In Topic: A little perspective on the Israeli/Palestinian Conflict

28 July 2014 - 03:38 PM

the one thing it seems Hamas and Israel can agree on is the value of a Palestinian civilian life. There's no easy solution here. :(


That is probably the saddest, truest statement I have heard about this whole conflict.

In Topic: Why did you become a Panther fan?

26 July 2014 - 11:17 AM

In early 2003 both my parents finally decided to give up the bottle. They started acting like real parents for once. We were a real family for once.

We started watching Panthers games together every week, even though my dad is a die hard Lions fan. I remember him mocking the team for benching their qb halfway through the 1st game of the season.

As the wins piled up that season, we enjoyed some of the best family holidays I can remember. Those Sunday's watching the Ragin' Cajun and a young spark plug wideout will a team to victory, became the highlight of our weeks.

In January, my dad moved out. A month later, we lost the most thrilling football game I have ever seen to a bunch of cheating pansies with Boston accents. The next year my brother left for Iraq.

But for one brief year, it was magical.

As we've gotten older and spread ourselves across the state, we still get together to go to at least one game every season. My dad still pulls for the Lions, but the Carolina Panthers will always have a special in each of us.

We should establish places for them to go.


I nominate Detroit. No one else wants the damn place.
