    All this talk about practice and OTA’s / Mini-camp. We need to keep in mind that they are still prohibited to contact the other players so the “line battles”, sacks, and runs aren’t real yet because they can’t tackle and aren’t really blocking.

    Nick Hicks podcast reveals that Albert Wilson said that playing in Miami last season was the strangest year of football he’s ever experienced in his life. He said they had to walk in single file down the hallway, nobody was talking and everyone just walking on pins and needles.

  3. naplesfan2010 says:

    Ryan Fitzpatrick is retiring. So I hear. 17 seasons with 9 teams.

    • Rockphin says:

      The real story is he doesn’t want any more kids. He’s had one at each stop along his career. LOL

  4. naplesfan2010 says:

    Also Frank Gore, signing a one day contract to retire as a 49er.

  5. CavalierKong says:

    I think this is worth reposting on the page turn. Wilson has no reason to be making anything up. There were clearly issues with the Flores regime.

    I predict that we will be in late July and still see the O-line mixing and matching to all of our frustration.

      wow he roasted the media or at least the dickheads asking him stupid shit with a snarky tone. Good for you, Tua.

    • Ken says:

      I am surprised

      • stangerx says:

        But if Connor Williams says he thinks the plan for him is Center…. sorta have to believe. He’s made clear LG is his preferred spot.

      • steveccnv says:

        Point was Stanger they’ve been talking up Deiter, and could’ve traded him, if they wanted to, but them seem to like him, so now all of a sudden he’s chopped liver?

        Or are they not getting high enough offers and are trying to get a higher pick

      • stangerx says:

        I get why it is big news. Also seems to indicate Deiter is not the guy, but then he plays G too.

  12. herdfan says:

    I just unspammed some comments for today. I think by Wyoming and Rock.

  13. steveccnv says:

    If Eichenberg plays LG between Williams and Armstead, he’d probably feel like he died and went to heaven compared to his situation in 2021

    Biggest surprise in camp has to be Iggy

    Is it smoke to get traded or real?

    • mf13ss says:

      Man, I sure hope it’s real regarding Iggy. Something tells me that it IS real, too.

      • mf13ss says:

        Iggy, like Austin Jackson, was drafted at a younger age than most. Year 3 (that’s Iggy) is when the light generally comes on from skill positions, namely the CB position.

      • steveccnv says:

        What seems real about it is even when he’s not making a play, like on the Hill bomb, they said he was right there, you usually don’t say something like that, when trying to prop someone up

      • mf13ss says:

        100% agreed, Steve! We just may have a stud in Iggy.

  14. mf13ss says:

    I saw vids of Iggy last year in ‘CB camp’, along with Xavien Howard, at approximately the same time of the year as now. He looked much more polished than his rookie season. If he continues his progression, he truly could become a star in this league… especially learning from X and Byron.

    • steveccnv says:

      And Pat and Sam, but we could surely use him

      • mf13ss says:

        OH! How the heck did I forget about Pat and Sam?!! TOO RIGHT, my man! Great point!

    • CavalierKong says:

      I’d settle for him progressing into a guy that can get regular playing time during the season

    • stangerx says:

      Become a star? When you watch him on routes he’s good at staying close but when the ball is in the air he just doesn’t have it. There’s a reason that first round pick has been inactive.

      • mf13ss says:

        He’s showing promise, Stanger. That’s all we can ask for, and it’s GRAND to hear!

  15. mf13ss says:

    Truly, I think Iggy and Austin Jackson are going to be just fine under our new coaching staff. I feel the same way about Eich as well.

  16. mf13ss says:

    FWIW, I don’t usually wear a hat. But when I do, it’s more of a gentleman’s hat (see Shock G).

    Anyway, today I got a new baseball cap from the Miami Dolphins’ Pro Shop: LOVE IT!!! First Phins’ cap I’ve purchased since the early 90s.

  17. mf13ss says:

    I WILL tell ya this: the last Phins’ cap I’d purchased was in ’91, and it was rocked (no, not my personal cap) in ’93 by a certain celebrity. And no, it wasn’t Darius Rucker.

  18. stangerx says:

    Details on the motivation for the Tulsa shootings.

    “Officials in Tulsa, Okla., said the gunman who killed four people in the shooting at Saint Francis Hospital, including two doctors, a receptionist and a patient, on Wednesday evening had blamed his surgeon for ongoing pain after a recent back surgery and bought an AR-style rifle hours before the killings.

    Investigators have a letter in which Louis “blamed Dr. Phillips for the ongoing pain following the surgery” and “made it clear that he came in with the intent to kill Dr. Phillips and anyone who got in his way.”

    The chief said that the gunman purchased the rifle at a local gun store at 2 p.m. Wednesday, less than three hours before the shooting at the medical building. Police recovered an assault-style rifle as well as a handgun.”

    • steveccnv says:

      Not good gun laws there

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yeah I saw that. Some people handle things the wrong way and this is as bad as it gets. Really sad stuff.

      • stangerx says:

        I could almost get intensely blaming a doctor for something. But not killing anyone who gets in the way of me taking him out.

    • mf13ss says:

      Gotta love ‘Obama-Care’. NOT saying it was right to kill(!!!), but the way I heard it, the Dr. pretty much screwed the patient up, BIG TIME. And GWB put a cap limit on the amount a lowly patient can sue a backyard doctor for, during his tenure as president.

      For every action, there is a reaction… and some reaction is downright BAD. This has nothing to do with guns, this has to do with problematic healthcare or lack thereof.

      ‘Obama-Care’ MUST be repealed, ASAP. It’s pretty sad when you have video game players acting as ‘doctors’.

      • CavalierKong says:

        The way you heard it? Was that from some guy on Twitter?
        You think his reaction was because he couldn’t sue for enough?

        Harvard Medical School, Yale New Haven Hospital, practicing 25+ years = video game players acting as ‘doctors’ and a backyard doctor? Good grief what an ugly comment from top to bottom.

        Phillips was the section chief of the Warren Clinic and specialized in spine disorders, joint reconstruction, and surgical procedures. He graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1990, completed his residency at Yale New Haven Hospital, and was a jazz aficionado, The Oklahoman reported. He also sat on the board of directors of the John Hope Franklin Center for Reconciliation, which seeks to “transform society’s divisions into social harmony” in memory of 1921’s brutal Tulsa Race Massacre.

    OD, you aiight there?

    I’m rooting for the Lightning too, but won’t lose any sleep, if they don’t beat the Rangers

    But the series doesn’t start unt the hone team loses, they’ll be fine

    OD, my son is moving to Brandon FL end of July, I’ll be driving with him, when he moves, then over to Vero Beach to finalize the deal on a house I’m having built

    There is absolutely nothing in Obama that puts any cap on malpractice damage awards. In fact there is absolutely nothing in Obama care about malpractice cases at all. This was not about a backyard doctor. He performed surgery on the shooter less than 2 weeks ago. It is highly unlikely that any long term complications if any where known and very likely the shooter was still in the recovery phase. I mean c’mon trying to blame this on Obama care

  22. steveccnv says:

    Check this out around the 36 minute mark Tua’s trainer is talking about the difference between this offseason and last year’s

    • CavalierKong says:

      An hour and 24 minutes. Did you watch this whole thing?

      • CavalierKong says:

        He talks about getting to Tennessee and ‘the boiling point we talked about 10 minutes ago’. I’m curious what that is about. I may have to watch more of this dang thing, lol.

    • CavalierKong says:

      He talks about Tua’s footwork being messed up the 2nd half of the season, and he thinks he had PTSD from the Espanoza hit. The broken ribs really rocked him. The trainer also says Flo was the guy behind Tua having one read- dead plays.

      I know Tua is his guy, but this interview is an interesting listen.

    • CavalierKong says:

      I had to go back and listen to this from the beginning.

      Wow, listen to the 23:30 mark and that will tell you EVERYTHING about the Flores’ culture in Miami.

      • CavalierKong says:

        The guy says he knows for a fact Howard HATED Flores, absolutely hated him. That Tua stood up for the whole team during the Tennessee game and told Flores you can’t talk to people that way. that every player has talked about the change in vibe and it’s more than just saying it, it’s an indictment on Flores and the toxic culture he had.

        Talks about Tua being a humble man that played for his dad and Nick Saban, two notoriously tough individuals, and they never pushed him to do what he did in Tennessee, so how bad was Flores to push him that far. Jaelen Phillips had to get a confidence counselor because of how bad the coaches treated him/ made him feel. it goes on and on.

        This is a great interview

    • CavalierKong says:

      Interviewer says he heard some bad stuff about Dieter in minicamp. Communication issues while under center.

    I could almost get intensely blaming a doctor for something. But not killing anyone who gets in the way of me taking him out.

    Seriously? I don’t know any doctor that goes to work saying I’m going to fuck up some patient today for the fun of it. They do their best. How do you think it feels to have a patient show up at your door one evening pissed off because your husband refused to give her a tummy tuck because she had unrealistic expectations and in her mind she wanted/needed it to save her marriage? Because that happened to me. Scared the hell out of me, just my kids and me at home at the time, they were little then, we’re decorating our Christmas tree and this nutcase shows up.

    Maybe he should’ve blamed whatever caused him to have the back pain in the first place?

    • stangerx says:

      Was only saying could see blaming a doctor for something. If they don’t make mistakes their wouldn’t be malpractice insurance. And the main point of my message was dude was seriously screwed up.

  24. Tim Knight says:

    Kong, it’s becoming more and more apparent that Flores was the toxic one. Him getting fired the day after the last game of the season speaks volumes.

  25. herdfan says:

    I just read that Ryan Fitzpatrick is potentially going to be on Thursday night football. That would be entertaining.

  26. steveccnv says:

    Speaking of not going to well, Cam the Steelers are going to burn this year, we’ve seen them without Big Ben and it hasn’t been pretty


  27. steveccnv says:

    Looks like it’s Williams job at C to lose

    There is one area where Williams didn’t improve last season — penalties. He finished with a career-high 15 penalties, which is more than double his previous career high of six.


    Wonder if they also think his penalty issues will subside at C

    Think C is more important than LG, so it fits, if he can play it

    • Tim Knight says:

      It’s not like Deiter can’t compete at guard if he’s not the best option at center. The best 5.

      • steveccnv says:

        The article says as much

      • Tim Knight says:

        Yeah I’m reiterating the thought about it. The coaches are going to choose who plays where and we don’t have any visual of the OL in this system. I don’t care who plays where if we’re moving the ball and scoring points. LOL

  28. Rockphin says:

    I read a tweet from one of the beat guys that the Dolphins are done with the off-season program now until Training camp starts in July? I thought we still had 4-5 OTA’s scheduled in June? I am finding conflicting info on the net.

  29. Rockphin says:

    Ahhh, I can always count on Barry Jackson

    Though some teams end their offseason program with a mandatory minicamp, the Dolphins will not. They will have a few more OTA sessions next week before adjourning until training camp. The Tuesday session next week is open to reporters but not fans.

  30. steveccnv says:

    U75 putting out bad info shocking🤪

    The Dolphins will a voluntary pre-draft minicamp April 19-20, as well as 10 Organized Team Activities, otherwise known as OTAs. The OTAs are scheduled for May 16-17, May 19, May 23-24, May 26, June 6-7 and June 9-10. As per rules of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the offseason program is split into three phases.Apr 1, 2022

    Another article
    Phase Three consists of the final four weeks of the program., for the Dolphins from May 16-June 10

    Another one
    Organized team training activities, or OTAs, will take place May 16-17, 19, 23-24, 26, June 6-7 and 9-10.

    Pretty we aren’t done, usually they get about 6 weeks off before training camp

  31. Rockphin says:

    It’s NFL Rule that veteran players can show up for training camp no earlier than 15 days before the first preseason game. The Jaguars and Raiders play in the Hall of Fame game on August 4, which means their camp can’t start until July 20th. Following the Hall of Fame Game, Week 1 of the NFL preseason starts on August 11. That means most teams will report to training camp on July 27 or later.

    For the Dolphins our first PS game is 8/13 so camp cannot start until July 29th.

  32. Wyoming85 says:


  33. steveccnv says:

    Looking at the depth at wr and rb I wonder if the idea is to put maybe 2 each on the PS, after a hard fought camp battle

    WRs like Sherfield and Cracraft and RBs like White, Ahmed and Doaks aren’t likely to be poached, but could gain some valuable experience on the PS

    Just find it really stupid the players union’s reason for allowing teams to poach PS players, to get on a team’s 53 man roster

    There’s still only 53 guys on a roster, overall it changes nothing, except stunts the purged players growth in general

    Is the goal to say I made an NFL roster or is it to have a few years+ in the league?

    I would think it’s to the players benefit to stay on their original team’s PS and learn, then when ready compete for a spot on that team’s roster

    I’d have the last round of player cuts untouchable, then each team would have 24 hours after the final cuts to protect these players, by putting them on the PS, after 24 hours anyone cut, that didn’t make the PS can sign on another team

    • steveccnv says:

      By allowing team’s to poach other teams PS players your hurting player development and making a weaker 53

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      They make good money on the PS, too. Not like they have to drive a beer truck to make ends meet like they used to.

    • CavalierKong says:

      Currently, the players don’t have to agree to contracts with any other team though, right?

      They choose to leave the PS squad on one team where they are earning way less for a guaranteed contract making more with the new team, or they can do what you are talking about and stay on the PS with the original team. Why would the union take that choice away?

      • steveccnv says:

        Yeah making more with the new team, in the short term and that’s the problem

        Min salary for them would be around 38k per game

        Players with tenure earn $14,000 per week, or $252,000 per season, a nice spike from the $8,400 practice squad players used to make. And players with two or fewer accrued NFL seasons make $9,200.

        Is it really worth it to move up to a new team, that you’ve had no practice time with and are starting off behind the 8 ball?

        Teams will have an injury, then sign someone off of another teams PS, then typically a week or 2 later cut him

        What it comes down to is make money quick, instead of taking the time to develop

        Just like everytime you change a players position, everytime he switches teams there’s a learning curve, too many learning curves and you become master of nothing in a specialized field

      • CavalierKong says:

        I’m not saying you’re wrong about the development aspect. Even though I personally think it probably wouldn’t matter whether they are on the PS or another 53 as most of them are bottom rung and out of the league within 3 years anyway, I really don’t have anything to back up that belief.

        The aspect I disagree with is the union taking away that player’s choice. Your scenario is real good for the team, it makes sense for them, but you’re basically giving the team total control of the practice squad players who don’t have guaranteed contracts nor have any guarantee they’ll ever be on the 53.

      • CavalierKong says:

        You’d basically have to revamp the system and give those players more guarantees, then I could see the players union being on board. I’m just not sure what kind of guarantees you could give about being on the 53, dressing for a game, etc. That matters to some of these guys who know they don’t have long in the NFL (think Rudy, lol)

  34. naplesfan2010 says:

    Players with two or fewer accrued NFL seasons earn at least $9,200 per week, which equals $165,600 for 18 weeks spent on the practice squad. (A player accrues a season when they are on full-time pay status for at least six regular-season games). Players with more than two accrued seasons make a minimum of $14K per week and $252K for the whole season. For comparison, the minimum salary for a rookie on an active roster this season is $660K.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      So if our 2 — 7th rounders would earn the league minimum of $660,000 and got cut and put on the practice squad, they’d get that pay cut in half or maybe a little worse.
      … …
      But $165,000 a year for half a year’s work is far above what the average person makes.

  35. naplesfan2010 says:

    I wonder what guys make for coming out to OTAs and minicamp and stuff like that.
    I know the big contract guys have that built in sometimes with “work-out bonuses” etc.
    But what about guys who are like 70-90 on the roster?

    • steveccnv says:

      That’s beyond the scope of my point, I think it sucks that the NFL doesn’t have a developmental league or a way of keeping a team’s players long enough, that they see what they have or could be with a little coaching

  36. naplesfan2010 says:

    I mean like Cracraft or Ahmed?
    They have signed contracts in excess of $700,000 I am sure, but if they don’t make the 53, does that all go away? Have they been receiving a prorated portion? And then is their pay rate changed to some level as above for the Practice Squad, if they get put on that?
    … …
    It must be June if I’m talking about such trivia.

    • steveccnv says:

      The say 700k they sign for is contingent on them being on the roster for week 1, I believe that’s how most contracts work, if there’s some one offs, whatever

      Not sure what kind of money they get for attending camp, but if cut before week 1 and signed to the PS, they get the weekly amount you stated above

      They might have a signed bonus, that they get regardless of being cut at any point

  37. Wyoming85 says:

    I hope Williams works out at Center!
    I don’t see any more getting cut that would be “starter” material!

  38. Rockphin says:

    I have a dumbass employee that is threatening to quit because I refuse to pay for the damages to his car. Dumbass forgot to set the parking break on the forklift HE WAS OPERATING and he walked away from it as it rolled down hill and speared his own car with the forks!
    At least it was his car and not a civilians!! He thinks the company should pay the deductible on the liability policy we carry on the job.

    There is about $6K damage to the forklift too.

    I wanted to fire him this morning over it but my boss is taking it out of my hands.

    • Rockphin says:

      If he put the forks all the way down when he stopped it, like he is supposed to do, it wouldn’t have rolled all the way down the hill and hit his car!

    • sb7mvp says:

      Maybe he should have watched this training video before operating the heavy machinery

    • steveccnv says:

      Let him quit

      But I think the company is responsible, shouldn’t make a difference, if it was his car

      If the dude while working for you came up with some brilliant whatever, it would be the companies to do what it wanted with, because he belongs to the company while at work, so just the same any damages he does unintentionally the company is responsible

      • Rockphin says:

        My boss wouldn’t let me fire him, but by company rules I sent him immediately for a piss test. I don’t think he will comply and take the test so he will “quit” voluntarily by not complying.

    • steveccnv says:

      Did he take the karma 101 class😝

      Love hearing about someone doing something stupid and it affect only that person, well once the event has taken place, I don’t wish stupidity on anyone, we already have more than we can handle

  39. sb7mvp says:

    Steve and CK,
    I think the most interesting thing about that video with Nick Hicks was the first part where they talk about him working with Chase Edmonds. That was unexpected and hope Chase can do some big things for us.

    • sb7mvp says:

      All the other running back talk was good as well.

    • CavalierKong says:

      When I started listening I didn’t start from the very beginning and I cut in in the middle of him talking about Edmonds, but I didn’t know which player he was talking about. He was so effusive in his praise, I thought he was talking about Hill at first, or Waddle. It was really surprised it was Edmonds. It would be awesome if he can be that dynamic back for us.

    • steveccnv says:

      Yeah I agree, it was unexpected and opens eyes

      What I liked the most was the development of Tua and how he performs, when his lower half is right

      Hearing that about Tua, that his lower half wasn’t right last year and now is, he should improve from a physical nature this year

      Tua gets compared to Bama Tua, when he’s not that the bashing continues

  40. steveccnv says:

    This site needs a purge or something, every post gets an error initially

  41. CavalierKong says:

    That Nick Hicks interview was a perfect thing to listen to the last hour and a half of my work day yesterday, and I don’t know who the interviewer was, but he really seemed to know football and seemed to have some insider knowledge of the team. I’ll have to find more of that guy’s interviews to listen to at work.

    • steveccnv says:

      Nick Hicks could work with all of our players, as far as I’m concerned

      The detail and knowledge were fantastic, but he wasn’t so vain, that he wouldn’t listen to Tua’s dad, as Tua’s dad had some great things to say

  42. Rockphin says:

    I hope he quits! This is the same guy that told the office two projects ago that I had screwed up an not ordered enough tile to finish the job and that we were going to be 3000 SF short. I was positive we should have had at least 2-300 SF left over for the hotel to keep as attic stock but he insisted that we would run out. So the purchasing agent bought another $18K in tile and had to pay $6K to fast ship it to the job.

    Two weeks after the job was complete I got a call from the General Manager of the hotel asking me when the Conex box would be removed from the parking lot. (The employee should have had it emptied and picked up before he left the site for the next project.) I asked the GM to if the trailer was locked and if there was anything in it……….
    Yeah, there are two and and half pallets of tile in it……

    • steveccnv says:

      Sounds like you have an internal problem in your organization, if you allow the guy driving the forklift to order material

      • Rockphin says:

        He isn’t just a forklift driver, he is the Superintendent of the project. and he doesn’t order material, he has to go through the purchasing agent to buy anything. He is the guy in charge of the job-site. I am the guy in charge of all the guys in charge of the sites.

  43. steveccnv says:

    What a concept to interview the guy training Tua, instead of just listening to what X or Reek have to say

    Best interview I’ve seen in forever

    The simple-minded/lazy U75 just writes what he thinks, the avg reporter writes what he hears, the brilliant one takes matters into his own hands and gets the info from a source with firsthand knowledge

  44. steveccnv says:

    Lamar Jackson is a great QB, because he can use his feet and adlib to make great plays at the end of games, but has been lacking in the playoff games they’ve lost

    Josh Allen has been amazing the last 2 years, unstoppable mostly at the end of games, also uses his feet to allow him to be great

    Justin Herbert, has been great also, even though he hasn’t made the playoffs

    What all of these QBs have in common is they use their feet to be great, without it, I don’t think any of them would be great

    When you use your feet like they do it accelerates the process to be a good NFL QB, because their feet is such a big part of their success, it also leads to an early decline

    Tua and Burrow will not have to worry about losing a step, when they turn 30, their game will just keep evolving

    Company should have no obligation to pay for that damage. If you submit that to your carrier they will almost undoubtedly deny the claim

    • steveccnv says:

      How do you figure?

      You have insurance for accidents, wasn’t that an accident?

      Unless they can prove otherwise

      • Ken says:

        The claimant was negligent. They are not responsible for the claimant’s negligence

      • steveccnv says:

        I’ve read many things similar to this, it doesn’t seem to be as cut and dry as you make it out to be

        Typically, an employee is not held liable for ordinary carelessness or negligence in the performance of their duties. However, if an employee acts outside the scope of reasonableness, causing damage or injury to either property or persons, an employer may be able to sue an employee for negligence.

    • CavalierKong says:

      That surprises me. I would figure since it was a company employee and company equipment, they would pay for any damage done on their time with their stuff (meaning insurance would). I would think it wouldn’t matter who’s private property was damaged.

      • steveccnv says:

        That is the law, company is responsible unless outside the scope of reasonableness

        Forgetting to set the parking brake isn’t outside the scope of reasonableness

        If he however was intoxicated that may be different

  46. steveccnv says:

    your employer cannot legally make such a deduction from your wages if, by reason of mistake or accident a cash shortage, breakage, or loss of company property/equipment occurs.

  47. steveccnv says:

    The Basic Law:

    In California, an employer is vicariously liable for the negligent and wrongful acts of his employees that are committed within the scope of employment.

    On a distantly related note, is there a rule nowadays for all lawyers to have a JD?

    • steveccnv says:

      No, but they think they have a Juris Doctor

    • stangerx says:

      Kim Kardashian wants to become a lawyer without getting a JD, but that is a rare exception. Back in the day though was quite common… like with Lincoln.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Every state has its own standards. The admission to the bar is a state by state process. I cant think of any state that lets some one take the bar exam without a JD. I think Kim kardashian had some sort of exemption in CA

      • stangerx says:

        Cal is like the one of 4 states that still allows people to join the bar after a period of legal apprenticeship and then passing the bar exam.

    I was going to bring this up the other day.

    Did everyone see they let Hinkley Jr. walk?

    I guess shooting a President isn’t all that bad anymore???????

    • stangerx says:

      Hinkley was never found guilty, buy rather not guilty cause of the insanity defense. And there is no doubt he had a very severe mental illness.

      And the crime was over 40 years ago. Lots of murders get say 25 to life.

    Was only saying could see blaming a doctor for something. If they don’t make mistakes their wouldn’t be malpractice insurance. And the main point of my message was dude was seriously screwed up.

    Again, blame the doctor. What caused this guy to need back surgery in the first place? You’ve been in the medical system recently. If things didn’t turn out so well for you is that your doctor’s fault or maybe it had something to do with lifestyle choices you have made? Not saying you would do that, just an analogy to make it relatable.

    I guess we can say this is a trigger for me! Lol.

    • stangerx says:

      I’m pretty sure this doctor had done nothing wrong, especially cause the surgery was so recent. But doctors do screw up sometimes. I wasn’t blaming this doctor. Only pointing out that even if this one made a mistake being willing to take the lives of people uninvolved was horrific even if what this guy thought was true was.

      Was in no way shape or form meant as an attack on all the doctors out there. If anything they are some of the most reliable people in society.

      • herdfan says:

        Have you ever made any mistakes in your work? Could probably just pick up an eraser or hit the delete key and take care of it. Wait, strike that. You were a lobbyist. You had someone doing that for you if needed.

      • stangerx says:

        I could only imagine having my mistakes cause such potentially permanent harm. One reason why I respect doctors so mush. And heck — one save my life only a few months ago.

  51. Wyoming85 says:

    So let me summarize.

    We just let a severely mentally ill person, with a history of shooting someone.
    walk around with unconditional parole. That has spent the last 40 years surviving in the prison system?

    Nothing could possibly go wrong in this scenario???

    • stangerx says:

      He was either in psychiatric facility or the psych unit within a prison during those years. Except for the last ten years or so he was allowed to leave for limited visits at his Mom’s house. They let those supervised stays go longer and longer until they now felt he was OK to be released from supervision entirely. So this has been the final goal of a real long-term plan.

  52. Rockphin says:

    You guys know that Hinckley has been out on the streets since 2016 right? He is only being released from the other restrictions that were placed on him after his release from the MENTAL HOSPITAL (not prison)

  53. Rockphin says:

    I find it bizarre that the medical examiner ruled Brady’s death as a homicide 33 years after the shooting…..

    • stangerx says:

      If you can do it with a shooting victim who dies a week later, logic dictates 3 decades later should work as well.

    ” have fun with tua turndaballova”
    I love that.

    That’s f’n hilarious.

      It’s almost clever, but he doesn’t have a problem with turnovers so it’s just dumb, lol.

    “The left wants a powerful, nameless but supposedly benevolent bureaucracy, the right wants a strongman daddy figure. But the loudest of them all agree on one thing: America — the one the founders gave us, the one kept for us by our parents and grandparents — it doesn’t work anymore.”

    “We Republicans? We have a big choice to make, We can either continue to drift as a party that exists increasingly as a vehicle for the grievances of the angriest, oldest folks, or we could be a future-focused party of 2030.”

    NEW BLOG UP!!!

  58. steveccnv says:

    The right doesn’t want a daddy figure, we want to stop the corruption

    Those on the left want everything for free

    And all the politicians besides Trump want status quo corruption as usual

    I don’t know anything about Sasse, but he comes across as someone, that thinks he’s holier than though

    He’s the same blowhard, that comes around every so often and thinks he knows something others don’t

    Be careful of those that say, America — the one the founders gave us, the one kept for us by our parents and grandparents — it doesn’t work anymore.”

    Hitler and other dictators said something similar
