Its not so fair and balanced...in other words it supports a positve news view of something King Food Stamps implemented that benefits folks other than millionares.

I am disappointed that Philly B did not speak out against violence against women in this thread.

Mr. Scot you may want to PM him.

If you watch that Bradford play his knee buckles before he steps out of bounds. Do not blame Bradford for his own brittle bones.

His celebration was for the stop...CLEARLY.


#2945499 Apparently ESPN's Outside the Lines did a hit piece on Greg Hardy this mo...

Posted by TANTRIC-NINJA on 12 September 2014 - 12:46 PM

Apparently some people on twitter took away that his gf was pregnant at the time. weird


If they say Hardy had her killed on the streets of Rey rd and fled the city into a trunk in Tenn then Im done with all twitter/sports radio/tv lol.

This case in particular never looked good for Hardy..however, it seems(again just from what is out there) that this was an intoxicated/drunk rage couple moment and a disturbing amount of guns on a bed. I do think Hardy manhandled her a bit but no clear evidence of a violent right hook that Rice bestowed upon his lady.

Not excusing violence towards the ladies but if you have a enraged,intoxicated person jumping on you punching, scratching, slapping out of control(im not sure this happened but i have seen this before) I do think a restraining that may be rough and initally harsh is a natural outcome of the situation esp if there is a huge size and strength disparity.

The weaker person will just get hurt in the process if they continue to struggle and fight.

Hardy deserves to be dealt with..just not in the same boat or situation that Rice is in. Hardy just has the sensational plot points of Sex, Drugs and guns in one headline so it seems Rrreeallll Bad to the outsider who is just being introduced to this.


Unfortunately Hardy destroyed ALL the hardwork, accomplishments and oaths from Hogworts to get him his big deal. He will be paid but probally not by the apanthers and for the original DG offer of the 8 million a year IF he survives this PR nightmare.


#2944360 Are northerners more racist than southerners?

Posted by TANTRIC-NINJA on 11 September 2014 - 07:21 PM

racism is south carolina's pastime though


Im not saying Charlotte is a model of racial harmony but even though Columbia,SC is only 1.5 hours away there is a really fractured division of race here. It was really noticable when I first moved here. Just a totally different thing where even in public there is no walk by smile and hello I can get in most places in NC(OK major cities in NC)

I even made the mistake of eating at Maurice's BBq(ignorant of the whole Confederate flag fight) and got weird stares from my iced-tea cup.

Someone came up to me and said..No not you!! Tell me you did not eat there.. I guess all the confederate memoribilia and selling a book called the Truth about Jessie Jackson at the checkout counter never struck me as racist lol.. Ugh..went over my head.

And the worst BBq eve made btw. Well actually it was better than Sonny's but so is fried Balogna.

#2938179 weenie roast 14

Posted by TANTRIC-NINJA on 08 September 2014 - 10:09 PM

That was my first Cityfest I attended. I was a sophomore in high school and was a huuuuge Nirvana geek at the time. I remember afterwards one of my buddies said to me, "just saw one-third of Nirvana" and I was like fug yeah we did. That was when Foo Fighters was at their best. They opened with All My Life and finished with Everlong. Seriously an epic memory.

I saw most of those same bands but I also remember seeing Collective Soul friday night and The Wallflowers I think right after Foo Fighters ended.

BTW- all this talk about Fuel... meh, they're alright. They played uptown free one year for Speedstreet or something I can't even remember. It was alright... but their singer was kinda douchey.


Yeah it was hilarious to have Dave Grohl stop the concert bc their stage was flemsey and a few mosh pits broke out. He said he was going to sooth us with ballads and taught the crowd the pogo where no one touches each other!!

Of course a pregnant lady got hit in the head with a brick and medi carted off..

Posted by TANTRIC-NINJA on 08 September 2014 - 04:31 PM

Man woulda loved to see Weezer live. How were they?

Never been to Weenie Roast. Haven't liked a lot of bands that played it in past.

Charlotte needs to bring back Cityfest.

Cityfest was one of my fave concert events ever.. I went with a girl from work who I was all into but we were only friends. We saw the Foo Fighters when brand new, B-52s, Barenaked Ladies..then I totally hooked up with her eventual crazy ass rated R style in the apartment common area behind Rock Bottom Brewery!

This story has nothing to do with the weenie roast which i have never hooked up with anyone at.. Bleh!

Posted by TANTRIC-NINJA on 08 September 2014 - 04:24 PM

I haven't been to a Weenie Roast since I was 17 or 18. So 15-16 years ago, Jesus I'm old. I think it was Atheneaum, Creed, Better than Ezra, and maybe Tonic and Feul. I use to go to concerts all the time and now I can't remember the last one I went to. edit: Oh yeah I can, it was the Fresh Beat Band a few years ago with my kid.

I think you combined a couple...Soul Asylum, Semisonic, Tonic.. But they all were sorta similar. Ugh on Creed... Even their first cd!!(preemptive Creed lover defense)


#2936737 Bruce Levenson thinks southern whites are made uncomfortable by blacks

Posted by TANTRIC-NINJA on 08 September 2014 - 11:29 AM

This explains the continued phone calls on WFNZ of Panther fans continuing the cry:
"Cam has not shown he is a QB"
"He has to have a prove it season!!"
"He has not show he is a winner!"
"He still overthrows passes and makes mistakes"
"He is only elite if he can win a SB with these WRs"

Southern whites enjoy minority players in traditional sports roles(DE,CB,WR) but if its the QB position or say like Prez of the US then it gets REAL uncomfortable..then the minimum standard and expectations becomes elevated to unreasonable and unreachable levels. All the flaws or mistakes are met with the total dismissal of competence in the role.....

Tony Romo is still starting and considered elite still by analysits and reporters...Joe Flacco and Eli(both SB winners yes) would have unbearable scruitiny and probabaly have been cut or benched if a minority. Shawn Hill? Ryan Fitzpatrick? Stater week 1. A guy like Joe Webb, Josh Johnson and heck Josh Freeman are all more than capable of putting up numbers and performances like those guys did..but they are barely holding on to jobs or out of a job completely.


#2936690 Christian pastor offers atheists $100,000 to prove God doesn’t exist, at...

Posted by TANTRIC-NINJA on 08 September 2014 - 11:15 AM

To me being an atheist is simply saying there isn't enough evidence to believe in a god of any sorts. I do think the god of any religion I've heard of is very unlikely to exist. An intelligent source that started the universe is possible, some wouldn't consider that a god but I would.

I define a God as something that yes created you...but also one that expects to be worshipped with the caveat of an afterlife punishment-reward system.

If for instance humans developed consciousness bc primitave man was gene spliced with an Alien race to cultivate and roam this planet which may not have the resources, enviornment normal alien life then those are creators...but i think this is more a matter of symantics.

Elimination of a "God" concept is essential in my own belief structure. It validates the direction I went in in my beliefs...bc if i thought there was a "what if?.." id be religious. ...like i was growing up.

Posted by TANTRIC-NINJA on 08 September 2014 - 11:01 AM

I skipped over the last couple pages, but I want to clarify that most statements here contesting the atheist vs. agnostic argument are still operating under the concept of god in the definitions of both words as a personified idea of a creator. ie. Christianity.

I call myself an agnostic not out of intellectual laziness or the argument that I do indeed sometimes use to fall back on that "I don't know." Rather, while I readily admit I doubt the presence of a personified-intelligent-creator-deity, I still have a whole lot of respect and intrigue towards the creative energy of the universe itself. That and human consciousness.

For all anyone knows, our entire existence was brought forth and is meddled with by extraterrestrials. Say that to a Christian or an atheist, and you'll get equal laughs. But I hold it with just as much merit as either side's belief/non-belief.

However, until we find out we are not unique within the cosmos or whatever, I will maintain that there are forces at work that are greater than human comprehension. I cannot believe what I cannot comprehend, on either side of the existential paradigm.

That said, fairy tales and anthromorphisms were left behind in my personal philosophies a long time ago.

I feel like there is more proof of this theory than the Genesis tale.

Being an atheist is not ruling out where our origins are...they are ruling out that it is from the way it is explained biblically or most other theist explinations...also it is saying phooey to worshipping a ruler and following a strict theist tenent for an afterlife reward system.

I listen to any theory about life origins even one's from the religious...i see atheisim as more of the "open mindedness" approach to life than the restrictive, religious one that forbids you to explore these questions...forbiding you to eat from the fruit of knowledge without punishment from a Supernatural parental figure...simply to understand the universe from another perspective.

When you ask why an all-poweful god, who created knowledge, curiosity and humans, would fear that we welcome and explore other forms of thinking and why one would be punished for it . You eventually realize this has only benefits for the men who create and promte it.
