#3040046 SHOCKING! Honey Boo Boo's Show Cancelled After Totally Unexpected, B...

Posted by MadHatter on Yesterday, 01:34 PM

The fact that this show stayed on the air for more than 5 minutes shows just how truly ignorant a lot of people are.



#3040027 Burger toppings...

Posted by MadHatter on Yesterday, 01:18 PM

Either go the Carolina buger....chili, cheese, mustard, and slaw. Hate the raw onions.

Or, sometimes go all in....L &T, cheese, onions and mushrooms (cooked), mustard, bacon.

#3039366 First Case Of Ebola Diagnosed In The U.S.

Posted by MadHatter on 23 October 2014 - 09:39 PM

I applaud his going to Africa to help, but I don't get how you come back having had direct contact with infected people and don't go to a quarantine. Even if the govt doesn't require it (which they should) why would you take a chance with your family???

I really think anyone coming back from working with Ebola patients in Africa should be required to go into a mandatory 21 day quarantine.

They have a very high risk of infection.

#3037854 This Thom Tillis ad is ridiculous

Posted by MadHatter on 22 October 2014 - 08:28 PM

An anonymous quote in the observer editorial sums up this Hagan-Tillis election perfectly.

"The Senate candidates are so bad this year I can't decide which candidate to vote against".

#3034285 Leasing my first car.

Posted by MadHatter on 21 October 2014 - 06:38 AM

I used to work for Hendrick Automotive Group in their Finance department.  So, I had a lot of experience with the pros and cons of leasing.


The con is definitely that you are "renting" the car for a specified period of time.


However, leasing is a great option for specific types of buyers.


It allow you to get into a more expensive car than buying would....that is one pro, but not the main one.


If you are the kind of person who does not drive a ton and who wants a new car every 3-4 years, then leasing is a GREAT option for you.  Your payment is lower and in 3 years, you are often lucky to break enven on a trade-in (based on what you owe).


Me personally, I do not purchase expensive cars.  However, I always get a new car every 4 years or so.  So, having a car payment (with very low interest) will always be part of my monthly budget.

#3034274 What if we distributed private school vouchers

Posted by MadHatter on 21 October 2014 - 06:16 AM

Interesting topic.

From what I've seen in my 20+ years experience in the classroom and with the work I've done with teachers across the state, here's what I think:

Vouchers to send poor kids to a great elementary school may be useful. But it'd need to be a huge voucher. Five grand ain't gonna cut it.

Even more useful would be to spend that money on a great Pre-K program. So many of those poor kids show up the first day of kindergarten and are already way behind.

Another good use of the money is an after school program for poor kids, where they learn social skills and have someone to help with homework--the things they aren't getting at home.

For these schools in low-income areas, find the best darn principals and teachers you can find and pay them very well. Leave them the hell alone and let them work their magic. (This means relaxing some of the demands the state puts on them, which should be done for all schools in my opinion). Give money for extra teacher assistants and make class sizes smaller.

Just my opinion, based on my experience.

I truly believe that the after school mentoring types of programs are what actually may help turn things around.

Many if the low income and poorly performing kids have very little parental structure and help at home. Some a factor of parents not caring. Much a factor of parents not being around due to work (single parent homes). And, much due to parents who themselves lack the education and knowledge to really help the kids with homework or not installing the importance of an education.

We need to create programs that can successfully supplement these weaknesses. First step us money to fund them and the next step is to find a way to get the kids involved with them.

This is a tough situation, but it us fixable. And, for the sake of both the kids and the country's future it us a fix that must happen.

#3030462 changes need to come

Posted by MadHatter on 19 October 2014 - 03:43 PM

But firing OC Shula is a logical mid-season decision!

Also, RR was in hot water last year before Giants game and then he became Riverboat... let the heat get hotter under that seat and we may get riverboat back!

But the real issue this season is the defense.

#3030307 Is this the least Talented Defensive Unit in the NFL?

Posted by MadHatter on 19 October 2014 - 03:25 PM

The answer is a resounding NO.

But, it is tge least talented secondary in the league.

So our coach is a pussy for not trying to kick the ass of a ref who makes a bad call ?

Yep...we do have the fuging dumbest fans on the planet posting in here.

#3025602 Percy Havin to Jets! Wow!

Posted by MadHatter on 18 October 2014 - 05:34 AM

I swear it's like the Jets are trying to build the ultimate Madden offense if it's still 2009-2010.

Vick, Chris Johnson, Harvin. SO EXPLOSIVE.

But, with Rexy and Geno, they will still suck.

#3025601 Percy Havin to Jets! Wow!

Posted by MadHatter on 18 October 2014 - 05:33 AM

Russell Wilson's contract is the reason.

Been reporting that he has has physical altercations with multiple team mates in the locker room and he has major anger management issues.

This is why....not worth the headache as he was really not delivering on the field.
