#3256623 NFL: Greg Hardy won't be reinstated because he hasn't been discipline...

Posted by Anybodyhome on 27 February 2015 - 01:38 PM

So your employer can't discipline you for actions unless you are found guilty in a court of law.....which is essentially your arguement.

That is disproven everyday, in every profession


Essentially, you missed the point and please don't attempt to interpret my posts anymore. Fail.


And yes, if I'm charged with a misdemeanor and those charges are later dropped, my employer (which is a municipality), cannot take any action against me. I have the benefit of HR policies which protect me.

To be fair, if you follow what Hardy did while away it sounds like one hell of an extended vacation. Miami, music video, parties, etc.

In the forever judgmental eyes of Panther fans, just what was he supposed to do for those 6 months or so, while getting paid and while listening to team basically tell him he's persona non grata?

He's a 25 year old kid with $13M in his bank. It wouldn't matter what he did; somewhere, someone is going to be critical.

Yet a judge found that there was enough evidence to find him guilty.

I am not arguing that he is guilty under the law. Only that based on there being enough there for a judge to find him guilty there would LIKELY be more than enough evidence for Goodell to support a conduct detrimental claim .

Oh good, that's the kind of place I want to live and work. Where being guilty "under the law" really doesn't matter nearly as much as someone's arbitrary definition.

Sorry if I find it just a little arrogant and self-important when a guilty, not guilty or other final disposition in a court of law has little to no impact on your future but some pompous ass in his ivory tower can dole out more punishment than a judge.

Greg Hardy won't be reinstated simply because the NFL has been embarrassed in court twice now since the Rice and Peterson rulings and they will keep Hardy on the Exempt List for 3 more years of they have to just to prove a point.


Legalities, due process, fair play all went out the window the minute the owners gave the commissioner the power to be judge, jury and executioner.

#3253947 So, what did I miss

So is keeping my daughter in college and pacifying my wife.


I'm banned forever if I decide to comment right about now.........

#3250552 an effort post on memorials to the enola gay and vietnam vets and what it say...

I enjoy reading threads like this which tend to be derailed into a variety of directions by a variety of people who never served.


I also find it interesting that I've never been asked or otherwise enjoined in a conversation about my experiences or firsthand knowledge during the course of my career which spanned a period of time which included the last days of Saigon, Grenada, Panama, Iran-Iraq 1987-1988 and Gulf War 1. Consequently, I'm curious as to what life experiences or exposure to the subject at hand led to the opinions expressed by some of these folks, since they have no direct experience or understanding?

#3247510 CNN headline: "Donestic right-wing terror" WTF?

Posted by Anybodyhome on 20 February 2015 - 11:55 AM

I should be terrified of people that are secretly working to take over the world... and leave me alone?


Don't get me wrong, I'm not okay with Timothy McVeigh working to kill with any amount of collateral damage, but if you think that this government is in line with the protection of its citizens rights, you aren't paying attention:




You should be terrified of anyone who is willing to kill a fellow citizen simply because they work for a government entity, including maybe your next door neighbor who changes tires in the fleet maintenance department.

The bigger question is why Carolina continues to hire guys who were good in college, sucked in the NFL and suddenly they're NFL coaching material?

#3245913 The Nominee of the Dem Party

Posted by Anybodyhome on 18 February 2015 - 07:50 PM

I do not believe any national-level politician - with the possible exception of Bernie Sanders (who is only able to be honest because, Vermont?  who the fug cares) - is really honest with the public or open with their intentions.



to me, she just is way too inexperienced for pres. I don't know what i'm getting with her, politician wise.  That concerns me.  She needs to be in office for more time... and the senate needs someone railing against banks :P


There are a few Bernie Sanders types out there who have the full support of their relatively small and non-sheep-like constituents. They stay in office for several terms, remain brutally honest and don't have to hold anything back because they know they are at their pinnacle and will never climb any higher as they pander to no one.


As for me? 2016 may actually be the first time I opt not to vote in over 40 years if the ballot is full of retreads and former-failures who think we forgot about their last attempt. The voting public is so incredibly fed up with the status quo, yet the parties continue to throw the same poo dressed in different toilet paper and it somehow sticks...

#3243436 part-time work ideas

Posted by Anybodyhome on 16 February 2015 - 11:28 AM

what quals do you need? i'm actually getting my masters for the specific purpose of teaching at a CC, which is the minimum standard requirement for teaching anything in humanities


Totally depends on the course of instruction. Some of them require an undergrad, some require nothing but a professional certification. 


You did/do bartending, right? Say you taught a basic mixology course on Wednesday nights. There's no real professional degree program for such a thing, so your professional experience and background has everything to do with it.


My wife taught a restaurant management course and she has been the COO at a few private country clubs. She has a couple undergrad degrees and an MBA, but her class specifically dealt with food costs, budgets, labor, etc. She was actually sought out to do the job.


I taught a basic home improvement class on Saturday mornings many years ago. I'd been in the biz for 12 years or so and was a licensed residential real estate home inspector. I went looking for the job.


You might want to reach out to the CC and see what they have to offer and what they need.

#3242315 NBC Anchor admits to lying about a story

Posted by Anybodyhome on 14 February 2015 - 08:46 PM

There was this Navy SEAL guy who made up a bunch of stories, including shooting looters from the roof of the Louisiana Superdome after Katrina and punching out Jesse Ventura in a bar. 


Someone made a movie about him... and conveniently left that part of his life out of the movie.


Trying to figure out why one of them is supposedly a hero and the other is being branded a liar.

#3242000 League files motion for Hardy's evidence

Posted by Anybodyhome on 14 February 2015 - 11:45 AM

No, this is still about the domestic violence.

As I said, all that has been proven us that he paid holder and she went away.

League is evaluating whether tgere us enough there to warrant a suspension.

Remember Rothlesberger was suspended even though he was never found guilty.

Not saying he should it should not. Just what I think the league is looking at.


Did I miss something over the last couple days? While I've heard a lot of conjecture and a lot of, "... it appears as though...", but where is there any proof Hardy paid her off to go away? Perhaps a bit of circumstantial indication he paid her off, but has anyone come forward with proof of an actual settlement?


It's not like she completely disappeared, she simply traveled, posted to her FB account and it sure doesn't appear she was trying to become anonymous. The DA simply didn't feel the case was worth the money to have people going all over the country to serve her with a subpoena.
