#2813676 How Many Years Do You Give MKG?

This is why I hate when you draft guys who need developing. Fans never have the patience to allow him to actually develop.

He is a good player and only 23.

His antics worry me a bit, but he is a good player that if he didn't blow up team chemistry would make us better


#2810590 I've Never Seen The Argument Put So Well Before

Hey Delhommey and CWG....tell me again how it is society's fault that an underprivelaged kid fails in the classroom.

Here is a story about a boy who was HOMELESS from the age of 6. Yet, he graduated with a 4.7 GPA, graduated valedictorian of his class, and won a scholarship to Florida State.

Quote from the kid:
“I perform the way that I do in the classroom because I have everything to lose. I make the grades I do because I was once lost and had nothing.”
Furlong’s mother died of leukemia when he was just 6 years old.
Soon afterward, Furlong, his father, and older brother lost their home and ended up in homeless shelters.

Furlong said he often went to bed hungry and there were times when he wanted to give up.


“I never had a full childhood. I felt like I wasn’t even human anymore. And I would just think to myself at night, 'Do I continue to do this or do I make something of myself?'"



It is ALL ABOUT personal fortitude, work ethic, and a desire to succeed.

He should have just listened to the two of you fuging idiots, acknowledged defeat, and gone on welfare.

Cool

There is probably tens of millions of anecdotal stories of the opposite happening.


#2810231 Study finds strong evidence for discriminatory intent behind voter ID laws

Posted by teeray on 05 June 2014 - 02:40 PM

Please explain how a law that requires EVERYONE to provide an ID....and provides and ID for ANYONE who cannot afford one....is "discriminatory".  The fact that EVERYONE is required to do the exact same thing is the opposite of discriminatory.

 

You are just another minority making excuses....guess going to get that free ID is just too much damn work for you.

 

EVERYONE had to pay poll taxes to vote

 

EVERYONE had to take literacy tests to vote

 

 

That is not the exact opposite of discriminatory!




#2810219 Study finds strong evidence for discriminatory intent behind voter ID laws

Posted by teeray on 05 June 2014 - 02:35 PM

Those idiots (yes Del, I am talking about you) that claim having to show an ID to vote "discriminates" against anyone really do not even know the definition of the word "discriminate".

 

The law requires everyone (every race, gender, age, etc) to show an ID.  The SAME type of ID mind you.....and will provide you with a free one if you can't affor one.   

 

As such, the law ,as it is written, is the complete OPPOSITE of disciminatory.

 

Carry on

 

Much like poll taxes were not discriminatory because everyone had to pay them!!

 

And literacy tests to vote was not discriminatory because everyone had to take them!!!

 

Those I think we can all agree were the exact OPPOSITE of discriminatory.

 

 

smh

Republicans have been planning this counter assault for years, amazing that they only now know the details.

 

 

"The Hill is giving State and the White House poo," says one senior administration source. "The political consequences­ are being used as leverage in the policy debate." According to White House sources, Marc Grossman, who replaced Richard Holbrooke as special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, was given a direct warning by the president's opponents in Congress about trading Bowe for five Taliban prisoners during an election year. "They keep telling me it's going to be Obama's Willie Horton moment," Grossman warned the White House. The threat was as ugly as it was clear: The president's political enemies were prepared to use the release of violent prisoners to paint Obama as a Dukakis-­like appeaser, just as Republicans did to the former Massachusetts governor during the 1988 campaign. In response, a White House official advised Grossman that he should ignore the politics of the swap and concentrate solely on the policy.

 

"Frankly, we don't give a sh*t why he left," says one White House official. "He's an American soldier. We want to bring him home."

That was 2 years ago.  How blindsided were they to promise in advance political retribution if he brought home a POW.

Didn't Israel just recently give up 1,000 prisoners for one soldier?

 

Some countries value the lives of their citizens more than others, and usually these exchanges are lopsided, 5 prisoners was probably a decent deal. 

 

The character assassination on this soldier for solely political purposes is shameful.

To me Red Viper's death was more traumatic on the show than in the books. In the books I was more upset for Tyrion than Oberyn, but in the show I was upset that a great character had such a short run. Plus seeing a guys head crushed is worse than reading about a guys head getting crushed.

I think that is a credit to the show runners and even more a credit to Pedro Pascal for making TV Oberyn >>>>> than book Oberyn


#2807535 Snowden Answer

Posted by teeray on 03 June 2014 - 10:27 AM

I'm as USA as a guy gets, but if the secrets being spilled are revelations of immoral acts being done by those leading us,then I don't care who leaks them or where he goes afterwards, he did the right thing.

 

You are an ends justify the means type guy then.  I just happen to not be that way.

 

If the information he has disseminated publicly or the surveillance information he used as a bargaining tool to stay in Russia,  allow our enemies and terrorists to revamp their style of communications to avoid detection, and/or carry out counter espionage with our own technology, allowing them to do the US harm, it isn't the right thing.

 

Possibly making it much easier to put our citizens and military in danger to teach the NSA a lesson is not the right thing in my book. 

 

So forgive me if I don't sing a traitor's praises as he sleeps safely and soundly in Russia.

#2806442 HBO- Silicon Valley

Posted by teeray on 02 June 2014 - 07:35 AM

I was getting ready to say the same thing.  Them trying to create an algorithm to determine the most efficient way to jerk off 800 dudes was one of the funniest things I have seen on TV this year.

My only complaint about this episode is I felt Ser Jorah's banishment could have been better.  The book is better because you get to see what is going on in Dany's head when it happens, and that is virtually impossible to do on the show.

 

Also in the book Jorah is more indignant and defensive at first, which forces her hand, but on the show he came in already pouting and begging so it seemed a little off.

 

But other than that, good freaking episode, and I am going to go watch Silicon Valley now so I don't have nightmare's of Oberyn's skull getting crushed.  Ugh
