Hmm, saying things on the phone is not an action? Really? Issuing an order or demand to another person over the phone is not an action? If not mob bosses would be immune to prosecution by ordering a hit over the phone.
What law did he break?
You need to break a law to be held responsible for your actions? Really?
So a guy can call his boss a whole bunch of offensive names, but if he doesn't break a law he cannot be fired (held responsible for his actions)?

My "godfather" was the head of a railroad/waste management mafia.
(To qualify that statement.. Mom was from one of those huge Catholic Italian families. He was in jail shortly after I was born, I had only ever seen him twice... both at funerals he was released for.)

The police had an unfortunate man set him up for something small. They put him in jail.

He had no idea that police had developed technology to listen to your phone calls yet.

He ordered this unfortunate man eliminated from a prison phone.

Then they had him... for good.

The unfortunate man... Well, he was unfortunate.

They found him in a local lake they drained the next year.

Loose, they don't think it is cool. No one does. If you have experienced this first hand I would suggest someone may have been wearing a mask.

It is the bell that 95% of the time signals you will never walk on the field again.

It is a contact sport and the players know what can happen if they aren't careful.

There ARE catastrophic injuries in football. But they are very rare. The equipment is well designed, and it is pounded into your head from 6th grade..." NEVER lead with your head."

I must agree. I had a great time playing football in high school and college. My only regret was seeing an opposing player break his neck and suffer life-long quadriplegia.
That sucks.

It happens. It isn't common. Most of us have seen people get hurt... but they are back soon. I broke my tibia in a game and was back for playoffs in 6 weeks.(Outstanding level of care you get being a young athlete.)

They told my coach they were going to give me a cast and I was done for the year. No wrestling... no discus... no pole vault.

When they left he said "Hell with that." (First time I had heard him come close to cursing.)

He called in a specialist from Pittsburgh, surgery next day. I was put in an immobilizer, walking in 6 days with some help. Functioned okay at 3 weeks... 100% in 6 weeks.

Those asshole sports medicine guys with there stretchy bands and therapy pools are who I have to thank for that.

The Man in the doorway
By Michael Ryerson

They came in low and hot, close to the trees and dropped their tail in a flare, rocked forward and we raced for the open doorways. This was always the worst for us, we couldnt hear anything and our backs were turned to the tree line. The best you could hope for was a sign on the face of the man in the doorway, leaning out waiting to help with a tug or to lay down some lead. Sometimes you could glance quickly at his face and pick up a clue as to what was about to happen. We would pitch ourselves in headfirst and tumble against the scuffed riveted aluminum, grab for a handhold and will that son-of-a-bitch into the air.
Sometimes the deck was slick with blood or worse, sometimes something had been left in the shadows under the web seats, sometimes they landed in a shallow river to wash them out. Sometimes they were late, sometimes...they were parked in some other LZ with their rotors turning a lazy arc, a ghost crew strapped in once too often, motionless, waiting for their own lift, their own bags, once too often into the margins.
The getting on and the getting off were the worst for us but this was all he knew, the man in the doorway, he was always standing there in the noise, watching, urging...swinging out with his gun, grabbing the black plastic and heaving, leaning out and spitting, spitting the taste away, as though it would go away...
They came in low and hot, close to the trees and dropped their tail in a flare, rocked forward and began to kick the boxes out, bouncing against the skids, piling up on each other, food and water, and bullets...a thousand pounds of Cs, warm water and rounds, 7.62mm, half a ton of life and death. And when the deck was clear, we would pile the bags, swing them against their weight and throw them through the doorway, his doorway, onto his deck and nod and hed speak into that little mic and theyd go nose down and lift into their last flight, their last extraction. Sometimes hed raise a thumb or perhaps a fist or sometimes just a sly, knowing smile, knowing we were staying and he was going but also knowing hed be back, hed be back in a blink, standing in the swirling noise and the rotor wash, back to let us rush through his door and skid across his deck and will that son-of-a-bitch into the air.
They came in low and hot, close to the trees and dropped their tail in a flare, rocked forward, kicked out the boxes and slipped the litter across the deck and sometimes hed lean down and hold the IV and brush the dirt off of a bloodless face, or hold back the flailing arms and the tears, a thumbs-up to the right seat and youre only minutes away from the white sheets and the saws and the plasma.
They came in low and hot, close to the trees and dropped their tail in a flare, rocked forward and wed never hear that sound again without feeling our stomachs go just a bit weightless, listen just a bit closer for the gunfire and look up for the man in the doorway.

Well Loose, years ago when I was in my mid 30's or so I suffered a knee injury on the job that was giving me fits. The State of California of course sent me to their specialist and the union to theirs.

There was no question about the injury; the only question was how to treat it.

The union doc being a surgeon as well wanted to operate immediately and with the operation would have come a substantial financial award as well.

The state's doc said it was my decision but opined that with a little care the injury would more that likely heal itself over time.

He then asked if I could duck walk and I assured him I could even though the pain was excruciating.

He got my attention when he said, after the operation my duck walking days would be over.

Needless to say I did not get the operation, my knee is fine and to date I can still duck walk...... LOL

I couldn't agree more about pro drivers being way above the skills of an avg motorist.

You mean NFL....

No one kicked him out Rogue. He can play anytime he wants. All he has to do is get on a team.

There are 32 teams that keep about 3 Qbs each.

He has to beat out just 1 of those 96 people.

Last year he didn't do it. He can try again this year.

Every team in the NFL has a walk on tryout. Very rare anyone makes it. But it happens.

Willie Parker who was a three year phenomenal running back for the Steelers (Has two rings now).... was a walk on.

He lost a step after 3 or 4 years... they traded him away to another team. He played a few more years there.

Yes I can and I have something you Libtards seriously lack and that is good old commonsense. Because if you do not have commonsense you will be a bead pilot just like JFK Jr.
And I define an intellectual idiot as one who has a high IQ and a sub-normal CQ (Commonsense Quotient) which fits you to two a tee.
Can you text and drive at the same time? I don't know if I can as my high CQ tells me it is stupid try and to do so!!! And yes, my plane, just like JFK Jr.'s, has an autopilot and I let George (that is what we call our autopilots) do most of the flying but that does not mean I don't keep one eye on George while he is doing the flying as I know better.
There are old pilots and bold pilots but no old, bold pilots.
It is best to be on the ground wishing you were flying than flying and praying to get back on the group.
If you run out of gas, you can not park on a cloud and wait for someone to bring you more fuel.
Be aware of cumulus-granites (clouds hiding mountains) or nympho-cumulus clouds (because they will screw the f-out of you).
Always remember that a weather briefing is nothing more than professional advise and the weather forecaster is not the one who will die if he is wrong.
Putting gasoline in gas-turbine engine will make the engine run hot but putting jet fuel in a gasoline piston engine will cause and engine failure.
Nope that is who the very famous pilot Bob Hover and a double engine failure on take off because the fuel handler up jet fuel in his Shrike Commander. Oh, Bib had been retired since the 1990s.

His flying skills appear from this layman's point of view to be unquestionably impeccable, but no way would I be in the cockpit with him....... LOL

Well, Jimmy Doolittle thought so! Also when they were interviewing pilots for the Bell X-1 project the general called Bob Hover in and asked him who the best pilot and he said "Chuck Yeager". And the general replied "Chuck said YOU were"!
So Both Jimmy Doolittle and Yeager said he was the best. Who and I to say other wise.
My father told me about getting into an inverted flat spin at 10,000 feet in a OV-1 Mohawk and the emergency procedure said if the airplane was not flying before going through 3,000 feet AGL, you were to eject. But he thought if he ejected while inverted, as soon as his shute would start to open, the plane would have fallen through him. He pulled out at 2,000 feet.

US and EU sanctions to Russia (because of Ukraine crisis) will come to damage US and EU themselves eventually.

Obama will fail by doing regime change coup election as series failures in LIBYA, Iraq, Afghanistan, BUT there are two countries in Ukraine now as Obama continues the fake scam by doing coup election in Kiev only while having warfare of west and east Ukraine..

The new world has made situations that European people are increasingly depressed, hacked and meddled by US

West Ukraine are Nazi right sector terrors, including having done the Odessa terror , but Nazi right sector terrors are weak, cannot do self-defense as will be invaded in return by crushing forces against them.

The emerging world is the new world rising with crushing forces against Nazi radical elements..

US cannot withstand the strength of the new world, will go away faster, as the emerging world will become more powerful and effective with a better Russia working together.
