THREE MORE SPOTS FOR FANTASY FOOTBALL: http://nyjetsfan.com...ndpost&p=356805
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 02:22 PM) Jets sign free agent OT Charlles Brown
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:48 PM) We won't be able to backload it. He won't accept the offer. Keep in mind he requested he release because they couldn't come to an agreement on a raise.
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:49 PM) He is probably looking for $7 million or more per year.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 09:44 AM) he was only making 5.5 million this year. we can give him 10 mil signing bonus onf a 5 year deal and a low base salary (like 3 mil a year) it'll average out to 5 mil a year, but he'll get 13 million this year (more then double) and will cost 5 mil a year against the cap for the rest of the deal
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Any news on Mathis at all? Haven't heard anything since his release.
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Also, Sam Baker was cut today as well
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 04:52 PM) Titans releasing RB Shonn Greene
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 June 2015 - 10:40 PM) TEH WARRIORS
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 11:08 PM) This trophy ceremony awkward as fuck I had to turn it off
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:02 PM) It really was. It was more Doris Burke interviewing the Warriors than it was a trophy ceremony. Plus Adam Silver forgot to hand the Warriors owner the trophy after he was done talking to the crowd.
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:03 PM) R.I.P. Stuart Scott
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE SILVER
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE BURKE
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 June 2015 - 06:27 PM) THE A-ROD!!
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:19 PM) god damn week no activity in here
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:20 PM) might have to chop this table up into fire wood
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:26 PM) FIRE WOOD!
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:54 PM) Kristaps Porzingis???
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:55 PM) You'd think Isiah Thomas was still running the Knicks last night.
santana Icon : (27 June 2015 - 07:30 PM) Lol yeah no clue about those names
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) Is there any chance that Porzingis ends up being good?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) I'm guessing he won't be the next Pau Gasol or Dirk Nowviski
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:41 AM) You never know, he could be as good as Gasol brothers or Dirk. Honestly the Knicks picking at #4 did the same thing the 3 teams picking ahead of them did. Picked a 19 year who could go boom or bust.
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:45 AM) Porzingis seems to have the "I'm going to prove them wrong" type of attitude needed to overcome people's doubts about him. Hopefully he'll have the work ethic that goes along with that attitude.
azjetfan Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:17 PM) In other news I decided to shave the dome. Since the hair was falling out anyway I figured I would show it who's boss
santana Icon : (29 June 2015 - 01:11 PM) Deisel up shave the dome
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 June 2015 - 04:49 PM) Welcome home.
azjetfan Icon : (29 June 2015 - 08:59 PM) I feel fast.
azjetfan Icon : (01 July 2015 - 07:53 PM) Shot an 86 today. Personal best.
santana Icon : (01 July 2015 - 08:19 PM) well done
santana Icon : (01 July 2015 - 08:19 PM) im going to play friday
blk_orion Icon : (02 July 2015 - 08:57 AM) play what? golf?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) Sheldon Richardson suspended 4 game for substance abuse.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) f***
ganggreen2003 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 06:15 PM) DAMNIT TO f***ing HELL!!!!
azjetfan Icon : (02 July 2015 - 07:46 PM) Yup. Golf. I'm ready to take on Tiger. Mid season form. For what ever reason I am hitting the driver great. 280 and fairly controlled. I'm playing again Saturday.

santana Icon : (02 July 2015 - 07:55 PM) things were going too well for the jets this off season
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 July 2015 - 10:33 PM) Well I guess Williams will be starting in opening day now
MikeGangGree... Icon : (13 July 2015 - 09:34 PM) WOW homerun derby was awesome!!

The war is about the disposal of what Simon called, in his most unforgiving but cogent term, “excess Americans”: once a labour force, but no longer of use to capitalism. He went so far as to call the war on drugs “a holocaust in slow motion”.

The easiest way to get the country out of debt would be to legalize drugs, prostitution and gambling.

That and getting rid of tax exemptions for mega churches. But it would need to be heavily taxed and regulated. I don't want to smoke any meth that hasn't been approved by the FDA.

I have no problem with somebody of legal age going into the corner store to buy a pack of "Reefers" or "Mary Janes." Just like somebody buying a pack of "Winstons" or "Chesterfields."

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

Could you imagine what our society would look like if this happened?

Marijuana is on it's way...the walls are falling piece by piece in the anti-weed department. Can't say the same for any other drugs, and I can't say I think any others should be legalized.

unfortunately marijuana and other drugs such as pills etc are easier to get a hold of in high schools then are alcohol or cigarettes. so I don't really know how much society would change.

I think it would change greatly. All the people on the fence would have no reason to not jump on board and the supply would be greater. IMO

I disagree. First of all, I think that just because something is illegal, doesn't mean it's hard to get. It's definitely easier for high school kids to buy weed than it is to buy cigarettes. But it's not just availability. Quality and quantity is also important. Whether or not someone decides to shoot heroin is up to them. The risks are very well known. Jail time for possession of heroin is a slight deterrent at best. However, with legalization comes regulation and that means that you won't be gambling with your life every time you cook up a hit from a new batch. It also means that junkies won't be relegated to sharing needles in dingy crack dens.

Will legalization encourage more people to try "illicit drugs"? Possibly. But there are perscription drugs available now that dwarf the effects of pretty much every street drug in both potency and dependence. A heroin junkee need only find a doctor willing to write him a roxy script and viola! Medical heroin! Same goes for prostitution. Take the hookers out of the alleys, put them in a safe environment where they don't run the risk of getting their throats slashed in the dark. Legitimize an industry that's been legal before without any ill affects and tax it. Gambling is already legal, just to a select few. I don't see people living in cardboard boxes under the Atlantic City boardwalk.

I don't understand the history behind this. How is a nation that which for it's first 200 years fought and prided itself on separation of church and state ended up allowing religious institutions to become a protected class?

Its not about god. It is a non profit like Livestrong, Big Brothers, Big Sisters etc... Personally I see it as a scape goat for alot of business' to use to shelter there profits. Alot of these companies have huge cash reserves and pay employees very well. I mean 6 figures well.

The bible belt became a extremely important voting block. Then there was the rise in televangelism in the late 20th century and the blurring of lines between a churches non-profit activities and its for-profit activities. There was also the rise of Jerry Falwell's "Moral Majority" political organization in the 70s and 80s. Which came right after the courts took Christian prayer out of the public schools, the sexual revolution (the birth control pill and sex before marriage), the Roe v. Wade decision, the growing acceptance of homosexual people, and the increase in the divorce rate. This movement encouraged church members (primarily in rural areas) to become more politically active to "save 'merica from goin' to Hell." So now we have elected officials of all sides seeking the support of the "values voters." They in turn look the other way when religious institutions get increasingly involved with state matters (like the Mormon church and Prop 8 in California for example).
