  1. How you gonna do it if you really don't wanna dance By standing on the wall? (Get your back up off the wall) tell me How you gonna do it if you really won't take a chance By standing on the wall? (Get your back up off the wall) 'Cause I heard all the people sayin' Get down on it, get down on it, get down on it Get down on it, when you're dancin' Get down on it, get down on it Get down on it Get down on it, sha-baba-daba-doo
  2. Shoes ran out of gas I got a hole in my sole Bread ain't gonna pass Livin' off coffee and rolls It's gettin' kind of thin But I'll keep hangin' in So I'll send out for sunshine Put a smile on my face, spread it around the place Send out for sunshine Get that good ol' sun on the case
  3. The thing is, I don't care about either one of them. I'm not going to shed a tear for Kapernick who received millions of dollars, nor do I care about the kicker. They will both be fine. The difference is that the kicker still has to work.
  4. Why do I "lose?" Because you say I do? Still lording over conversations and dictating terms are we? How presumptuous and silly!!! Hey, the police officer in Buffalo that you so vilified for pushing away an old nut for running up face to face with him and breathing all over him during the height of covid was found NOT GUILTY. Do you now side with the cop because he was vindicated in some way? I don't care that Kapernick got a settlement. Do I think that he deserved one? No, for the reason you cited. Speech can have consequences. This kicker said some things; let's see what happens with him. And btw, Kapernick did what he did on National TV. It offended and alienated more viewers/fans than some place kicker making a speech as an invited guest at a school. But I don't expect you to see that.
  5. Agreed and the Levy/Jauron combo was about as bad as I have ever seen on any team in any sport.
  6. Ok, I'll play..... Of the people who fully supported the actions of Kaepernik and his right to free speech, how many of these folks are now butt hurt by the remarks of this other football player? I suspect almost all of them but that doesn't seem to bother you. It appears that you are only offended by those who do not adhere to your own specific credo which is imposing and unreasonable. I think that folks are allowed to have opinions and speak their minds, even if you morally object or even just plain disagree. This is why I don't care what this place kicker says as an invited guest of a religious school. I think that many who are not so demanding, self rightous, and dictatorial might agree. Wait.....you? Dictatorial? Brings back memories. 😯😂
  7. The jip-jam-jump is a jumpin' jive Makes you like your eggs on the jersey side The jip-jam-jumpin' jive Makes you hip hip on the mellow side The jip-jam-jump is a solid jive Makes you nine foot tall when you're four foot five The jip-jam-jumpin' jive ';Makes you hip hip on the mellow side
  8. Even if the bold is true, so what? It would appear to be another example of free speech, and Kaepernik suffered the consequences that you mentioned above for his actions (in addition to being a lousy quarterback). Some people wanted Kaepernik to be lauded. Others wanted him banned. Personally I think that in retrospect, things worked out well. And as far as Benedictine not having religious connotations, see below: What does being Benedictine mean? Benedictine, member of any of the confederated congregations of monks, lay brothers, and nuns who follow the rule of life of St. Benedict (c. 480–c. 547) and who are spiritual descendants of the traditional monastics of the early medieval centuries in Italy and Gaul. Ya see, a frequent problem with you intelectuals is that you sometimes have a habit of too often splitting hairs.
  9. Great center on what was either the best, or second best OL of all time.
  10. My friends are so distressed They're standing on the brink of emptiness No words I know of to express This emptiness I love all of you Hurt by the cold So hard and lonely, too When you don't know yoursel
  11. I defend his right to say what he thinks as an invited guest at a parochial school. Is there something wrong with that?
  12. I respectfully disagree. The only thing that would make Goodell not kiss KC's a$$ would be if (when) Kelce and Swift break up. Then they are just another team.
  13. Your post is an interesting one. I can understand the point that you make. I am going to break down my response for the sake of clarity. 1) I like the word "respect" more than the word "tolerance." If I "tolerate" you, it would appear (at least to me) that I feel like I am better than you, but willing to put up with you and what I perceive to be your shortcomings. I can respect transexuals and whether it fits the woke mode or not, I will add that I pity them. 2) My respect ends when people encourage children, young children to make life altering decisions when they are too young to do so. Recently, a Long Island teacher continued to tell a young female student that she was a "boy." She did this in class, in front of her classmates. The girl expressed suicidal ideations and the mother is suing the teacher and the district. I hope she receives millions of dollars. Oh, and also in terms of transexuals; I am 100% against biological males competing with women. As I said earlier, it took centuries for women to be able to compete in sports, and I resent the fact that after all they went through, MEN want to steal even this. 3) It could very well be me, but I sense that you may be overlooking the concept of free speech at least to some degree. The above example (#2) is NOT free speech. It is child abuse. An invited speaker at a parochial school stating his views is great imo, even though I don't necessarily agree with him on some issues. I don't have to send my kids there, nor am I forced to agree OR disagree with him. 4) Imo, too many people want to dictate the speech, or even the thoughts of others. Abortion is a prime example. I'm not necessarily proud of my stance on abortion. What I do find abhorrent and cannot comprehend is folks who take a stance that it should be legal 10 minutes or so before natural birth. Some will say I'm some sort of right wing radical for feeling this way but I am ENTITLED to do so and unlike others, I am not trying to silence those who disagree with my stance(s). In any event, thanks for you intelligent post.
  14. I don't need a whole lots of money I don't need a big fine car I got everything that a man could want I got more than I could ask for And I don't have to run around I don't have to stay out all night 'Cause I got me a sweet, a sweet loving woman And she know just how to treat me right But my baby, she's alright Oh, my baby's clean out of sight Don't you know that she's- She's some kind of wonderful? She's some kind of wonderful (yes, she is, she is) She's some kind of wonderful (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
