#2863530 Kug to have back surgery Aug 8th, done for year

Posted by Captroop on 24 July 2014 - 03:58 PM

Btw, I think DG has done a good job as a GM, but it pisses me off that he has done very minimal for the o-line.


This. He has woefully mismanaged the o line since day 1. We're lucky we have Cam.

oh noooo our 4th round pack didn't pan out :(

I hope Gettleman learned his lesson. That'll teach him to pick Star Lotulelei, Kawann Short, and AJ Klein while also signing Ginn, Mitchell, and Mikell to help set the Panthers up for a 12-4 season that resulted in their first playoff game in 5 years.

We had 5 picks in 2013, and no 3rd rounder. That whiff hurt us a lot more than in most drafts.

 

And remind me how we did in that one playoff game? And remind me who we have starting at LT? And remind me who we have starting at RT for that matter?

 

Naw, he's doing a bang-up job.

Ah right. Stick by my statement though.

 

No. Clearly it was Obama.

Negative.  All regular huddle tailgaters love MH.  Sorry I have to break it to you.

 

You might not believe it but MH is very fun to be around.

 

Speaking of which, is anyone coming up to Baltimore for the Panthers game? I still need to meet you mugs.




#2861874 I couldn't believe the nerve of this girl

Posted by Captroop on 23 July 2014 - 11:46 AM

I sent her quite a text this morning that hopefully made her cry.

 

She got in a fight with her ex, so you decided that rather than console her or stick up for her (because you were marginally inconvenienced by this situation) that the proper course of action is to ditch her and emotionally torment her further? You're a real peach.




#2861674 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time

Posted by Captroop on 23 July 2014 - 08:29 AM

Ugh, pretty much exactly how I feared this thread would turn out. It's reached the point of, "This is also a character from a movie."




#2860698 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time

Posted by Captroop on 22 July 2014 - 07:58 AM

Oh boy, so many good options, but to choose only one? Do they have to be original characters or can they be based in movies adapted from books?

 

I would say Gregory Peck's Atticus Finch, however he was a literary character first.

 

 




#2859807 NYPD kill a man after placing him in a chokehold

Posted by Captroop on 21 July 2014 - 10:46 AM

I can, and yes he should have, but I can also see how a black man in NYC would fear what the police were going to do to him.  They don't have the most stellar track record in that regard.

 

Obviously if they had carried on with him and he simply refused to comply, they would have had to resort to some sort of force at some point... however choke holds are clearly against their own policy so that's not really the way to go.

 

Agreed. One cop made the bad decision to use an off-limits technique to take the guy down. That cop should be punished. I dislike how this story is being spun to make cops look like the jackboots.

 

When the cops decide they are going to take you in, whether or not you are guilty, they are going to take you in. You're past the point where you can talk your way out of it. They're going to get you in the car. At that point it's up to you to control how hard you are taken down.

 

The cops were right to use force to take him down. The cop was wrong in using a lethal technique to do so. The dude also made a bad decision not to comply with the cops when they busted him breaking the law. Let's not lose sight of that. He was breaking the law, and the cops are supposed to stop people from doing exactly that. And no matter how petty the charge may have been, it was the duty of the police to arrest this guy for breaking the law. He didn't want to play ball. So he bears a marginal part of the responsibility.

 

Did he deserve to die? No. That was wrong, and the cop responsible will suffer the consequences. But he certainly didn't help his situation by just complying with the cops when he got busted.




#2859769 As you have grown up have you become more liberal or more conservative?

Posted by Captroop on 21 July 2014 - 10:12 AM

I grew up very liberal. And while I definitely still hold onto my liberal values on social and moral issues with a kung-fu grip, as I've ventured deeper into my twenties, my fiscal beliefs have definitely started to trend towards conservative. That is largely due to the fact that I make money, and especially when I lived in Maryland, I didn't get to keep very much of it. And then Montgomery County put low income housing behind my mom's house, and the value plummeted. So the whole dynamic of, "take more of my money so you can screw me over with it" kind of soured me on liberalism. It's characterized by well-meaning, but ultimately misguided endeavors that simply aren't practical just for the sake of marginally improving some group's social standing.

 

But this really is just where I stand on the ideological spectrum. It does not reflect my views on political parties. While I grew up a hardcore democrat, I've grown up not trending towards conservative, but just general disillusionment and contempt for both political parties. Neither has my interests in mind, and when they do pass legislation I agree with, it's a watered down version of what would actually be an effective law, because it had to be modified fifty times to appease the opposing, party just because they have to reject anything the proposing party comes out with in order to make them look bad.




#2859752 Malaysian airlines lost contact with another Jet

Did you see the reports?  International Investigators complainign that Russian rebels are drunk almost at all times.

 

It's very likely rebels that manage BUK were drunk and when radar detected aircraft, they shut it down assuming it was Ukrainian military airplane.

 

That's racist.

What options are available in this matter:

Sanctions; which hurts the people of the sovereign nation, not the government.
Basic indirect declaration of war without weapons that escalate the situation further.

Foreign Aid; giving monetary aid to Ukraine will help them in the short term but at what cost to us taxpayers. Will it fix the problem in the long run?

Sending our troops in Ukraine; great let's get in a dick measuring contest with Russia. It might deter Russia, eh who I am kidding we are talking about Vladimir Putin.

What good options are there and what is our interest?

 

This is actually indicative of the problem.

 

Why the fug is the US talking about what it should be doing in response to this situation? It's a Malaysian plane filled with primarily Dutch citizens that's been shot down over a regional conflict that boils down to a civil war between ethnic Ukrainians and ethnic Russians. Where does America figure into this situation at all?

 

We don't even know for a fact who pulled the trigger yet, and that the idea of American boots on the ground has even entered the craggiest fogbanks of our minds shows the inherint issue with American foreign policy.  Do you think Italy, for example, hears this story and goes, "Jeez, how should we react to this situation? And what exactly should we try to get out of it? What's in our best interest?"

#2855605 Malaysian airlines lost contact with another Jet

Here is what Russian rebels used to shotdown commercial jet.

 

183743389.jpg

 

They think the separatists fired this thing? This for me is confirmation that it was either the Russian government or the Ukrainian government. It's easy to say that "the Russians are supplying the separatists with these weapons." But really? No one saw this thing crossing the border? The Urkainian military didn't spot it in the streets? (I mean clearly this thing isn't being kept in some parking garage) The US/NATO drones that I promise you are circling the pro-Russian controlled cities 24/7 haven't photographed this behemoth? The separatists were able to fire this thing with accuracy?

 

No way, this either came from Ukrainians (jittery after the Russian jet shot down one of their jets) or came from across the border from Russia (thinking it was another military supply plane).

80 kids jesus fuging christ

 

Yeah, that's why it was so unsettling when I went to the CBS site to read about the story, and a video automatically launched. Unfortunately it was an ad with hundreds of young girls screaming at a concert ("way to go mom, you earned these tickets by using your Visa Express card" or some BS). So I'm reading about the kids dying, and then over my speakers come the shrieks of what sound like hundreds of dying children. I thought it was the flight recording until I saw the ad.

 

For fug sake news sites, I know you have to earn your nut, but either turn off auto-play on these damned videos, or screen which ads are playing!
