Chaos Icon : (17 December 2014 - 06:30 PM) @RapSheet: Sources: #Michigan has made another run at Jim Harbaugh after he initially rebuffed the school. U-M has made an offer of 6 years, $48M. Wow.
Chaos Icon : (17 December 2014 - 06:33 PM) @AdamSchefter: Stunner from Chicago: Bears starting QB Jimmy Clausen this week, per source.

santana Icon : (18 December 2014 - 03:19 PM) holy shit thrilling match up tonight
2JBallar01 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 04:13 PM) Does it matter who wins tonight? Draft pick wise for the Jets?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 04:16 PM) Probably not. We probably want to draft above the Titans though if that is possible, they are a team that could use a QB. The Jaguars just drafted Blake Bortles, doubt they go first round QB 2 years in a row
santana Icon : (18 December 2014 - 04:29 PM) so titans win is best win
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 05:52 PM) DRAFT WINSTON
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 05:52 PM) FIRE IDZIK
2JBallar01 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 07:05 PM) I'm leaning towards wanting to draft Cooper or oline with the first pick. have a good line and or relceiver core and try and sign Bradford or trade for Cutler to play QB. And have Geno as back up for us.
2JBallar01 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 07:06 PM) Not sure if Winston can be a franchise QB. Even Mariota has question marks.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 08:25 PM) That is why we need to draft Cooper at WR and then later in the draft go and get Petty
santana Icon : (18 December 2014 - 09:44 PM) clipboard jesus lead the way
santana Icon : (18 December 2014 - 09:48 PM) I miss leon
ROBJETS Icon : (18 December 2014 - 11:35 PM) If the Jets would have lost last week since the Jags won the Jets would have the 2 seed right now and not stuck at the 6 seed
ROBJETS Icon : (18 December 2014 - 11:36 PM) Oh well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 December 2014 - 11:21 AM) I think IK shows potential as a pass rusher
azjetfan Icon : (19 December 2014 - 12:50 PM) If the new HC goes to a 4-3 it will be interesting to see if Couples can play on the end.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 December 2014 - 01:43 PM) he's probably better as a 4-3 DE then a 3-4 LBer anyway
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 December 2014 - 01:43 PM) we'd need another DT though
santana Icon : (19 December 2014 - 02:12 PM) Rex to atlanta rumors swirling about
2JBallar01 Icon : (19 December 2014 - 03:35 PM) Who should be my 2 starters at WR for my fantasy. Championship game. It's between AJ Green, Djax, and Mike Evans. I have Hilton too but I think colts will sit him this week
2JBallar01 Icon : (19 December 2014 - 03:36 PM) I'm thinking Djax and Evans. I don't think the match up with green vs Denver
2JBallar01 Icon : (19 December 2014 - 03:37 PM) I have Ingram, Lamar Miller, and Lacy as my RBs and flex
santana Icon : (19 December 2014 - 03:41 PM) green and desean pretty much the same risk reward
santana Icon : (19 December 2014 - 03:41 PM) lock evans in and play the matchup for the other spot
santana Icon : (19 December 2014 - 03:41 PM) also might snow in denver mnf i would keep an eye on that
2JBallar01 Icon : (19 December 2014 - 04:48 PM) Good thinkin! I think I'm going to play djax. I like the match up better
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:09 PM) Atlanta would be a good landing spot for REx. He'll have Matt Ryan there so no need to develop a QB and he'll make the defense better
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:54 PM) He's not a good hc. He'll struggle anywhere.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:07 PM) Idk. I bet if he had a good offensive supporting cast with established players he would do fine. He just can't develop players. It may be like the Gruden going to the Bucs but in reverse
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:19 PM) The Redskins are In this game, I am rooting for them so we move up a spot in the draft
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:17 PM) if he goes anywhere he needs a quality QB. He can't develop a QB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:18 PM) Manish wrote a article how the Jets have to hire Nick Caserio as their GM and Josh McDaniels as their HC
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 12:29 AM) Anything Manish writes is either garbage of stolen.

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."

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).
