#3051490 This Thom Tillis ad is ridiculous

Posted by Davidson Deac II on 28 October 2014 - 03:30 PM

I have decided who to vote for in the NC Senate race.

 

I am going to write in Mike Shula.  He is obviously conservative based on his play calling, and if he wins, he leaves the Panthers, and that will make the football forum folks very happy. 

 

 




#3050677 Russia economy might enter point of no return today...

Posted by Davidson Deac II on 28 October 2014 - 08:17 AM

Personally, I hope the Russian economy does not collapse (and I don't think it will, although it will struggle).  Economic collapses in countries that have a lot of nuclear weapons make me a bit nervous. 




#3050635 First Case Of Ebola Diagnosed In The U.S.

Fwiw, I don't really understand what the lady in Isolation is complaining about.  Give me three weeks in isolation, with plenty of books, internet access, tv for sports, and I could easily deal with it.  Might even consider it a vacation, even if three weeks is a bit long. But comparing it to prison just means she has never actually seen a prison.

You guys...really. This ebola stuff is nothing to worry about. It's all media hype just like everything else.

 

Quick, someone check and see if Hell froze over.  I agree with you, mostly.  :)

 

A lot of it is media hype.  Although I think the media is only giving the public want they want, or what they are interested in. 




#3048143 Jeb vs Hillary

Posted by Davidson Deac II on 27 October 2014 - 09:12 AM

Change is overrated.

 

I just want congress and the executive branch to be able to compromise on some things.  For example, the budget.

 

But then, I guess that would be change wouldn't it?  :)




#3048135 School Shooting in Washington State

Posted by Davidson Deac II on 27 October 2014 - 09:09 AM

You don't need gods , Christianity, or any religion to discuss mutual respect and how to treat each other. But that really is something that kids should know by HS; I don't think it'd have any effect in hs

 

I think kids are far more effected by what they learn at home.  If you take a class at school that is basically a be nice to others class,while you go home and get ignored, or worse, beaten and abused, I am not sure the class will help much. 




#3047191 School Shooting in Washington State

Posted by Davidson Deac II on 26 October 2014 - 08:30 PM

Even if it was a psychological issue, it's not like people with mental health problems go around shooting others.  I have an aunt with bipolar disorder.  There were many times where she didn't take her medication, and would experience the mood swings.  The worst she's ever done in those times was put herself in harm's way.  It sounds like this particular student became depressed recently, according to some of his tweets the news put out there.  Could a "life course" at school saved him?  I couldn't answer that.  Yet if this tragedy is the result of him being rejected by a girl, such a course would have shown him his world was too small.  That it was shattered and he lost all hope because a girl rejected him.

 

Each and every individual is different.  The vast majority of people, psychologically disturbed or not, don't commit murder.  But some do.  A life course might be of some use, it might help quite a few kids.  I just don't see it helping someone so psychologically flawed that they decide killing their family member and friends is a good move. 
 




#3041404 thread on main page of SEA forum: "How do the hawks stop Greg Olsen on su...

Posted by Davidson Deac II on 25 October 2014 - 10:25 PM

Where have I heard this before? Oh yeah...

 

"The Steelers have one of the worst run defenses in the league, we will have a field day running the ball". ERNT

"The Packers have been destroyed by the read option and running QB's and Cam will have a field day against them". ERNT

"The Seahawks are horrible against TE's and Olsen will have a field day". We shall see.

 

Hopefully Olsen goes off, but I have been disappointed before.

 

We will lose to Tampa because we don't have Cam and we play poorly in opening games. 

Calvin Johnson will light up our secondary

Cam ran for 5.9 ypc on GB, should have given him more carries. But we aren't having any problems getting Olsen involved this yr, Olsen is on pace for 94 catches, 1,126 yards, and 11 TDs. He leads all NFL tight ends in receiving yards and is tied with Chicago’s Martellus Bennett for first in catches with 41.

 

Probably would have gotten more carries if we weren't down by a lot quickly. 




#3041376 Only way Carolina wins tomorrow is Cam

Posted by Davidson Deac II on 25 October 2014 - 09:46 PM

Quarterbacks usually have to play well for a team to win. 

 

For example, only chance GreenBay/New Orleans has to win this week is if Rodgers/Brees play very well.  Unless of course, they both play poorly, in which case, both teams still have a chance to win.  Unless its in Green Bay, in which case New Orleans doesn't have a chance.

Atlantis?  Or Atlas?  Or AT AT's from Star Wars? 
 




#3041337 Kony Ealy smh

Posted by Davidson Deac II on 25 October 2014 - 08:58 PM

hardy and Johnson are in a league of there own, evertte brown didn't do anything is rookie year either did he develop over time? At the end of the day the jury is still out but hardy had 3 sacks his rookie year, I'm betting ealy doesn't reach that

 

The vast majority of defensive ends don't do very well in their rookie year.  There are exceptions (Peppers and Reggie White come to mind) but most of them struggle.  I don't know if Ealy will end up being a solid player for us, but less than half a season is way to early to judge. 




#3041313 Russia economy might enter point of no return today...

Posted by Davidson Deac II on 25 October 2014 - 08:12 PM

Sure, which is why we are ranked AAA or whatever it is. However we are years away from sustainable growth that will be enough to start paying down debt.

 

Russia is BBB- which is equivalent to a company on the verge of bankruptcy. I maintain that Russia is generally undervalued right now.

 

I am not sure you can really look at a country as you do a corporation.  A corporation can fire its leaders, its employees, or both and totally change its culture in a short time.  Russia has problems of corruption, culture, geography, weather, etc... and they can't simply fire and replace their people.  The leaders perhaps, but not the actual people.

North Carolina= second or third highest gasoline tax in the country...

 

9th actually, but probably the highest in the south.  We also have more miles of paved road than any other State other than Texas.  Piss poor planning by the state government imo.  A push to pave every dirt road means eventually having to maintain every road. 




#3037957 Seahawks players: Russel Wilson "not black enough"

Posted by Davidson Deac II on 22 October 2014 - 09:27 PM

It's not about that. People are just able to tell when someone lose their essence. There are so many black players in the league that are well respected and held in high regard that still keep their essence. When you're acting like something you're not, people lose respect for you. Whether you're a professional or 'well spoken' you still need to keep your essence.

 

It's not just 'acting white'. That's just putting it in simplest term. Look at Obama, for example. He's professional and 'well spoken' yet he still keep his essence thus his community respect him. The black community is not asking anyone to not be a professional or 'well spoken'. In fact, there is a profound respect for those who carry themselves in a professional manner in the black community.

 

For you to understand better, it's the same way white people feel about, for lack of a better term, 'wiggers'.

 

Russell Wilson's essence is whatever the hell he wants it to be, or what his parents raised him to be.  Anyone that thinks he should act a certain way because of the color of his skin, or where he was raised, or another other such silly criteria should perhaps consider that they might be racist themselves.  

 

Neither Percy Harvin, nor you get to decide what another persons essence is.
