  1. I voted yes, but I wouldn’t hire him to work around animals.

  2. TempeBev

    I also voted yes, and agree with you Brian, for the same reason. Saw a PETA rep on Ed today who was demanding that Vick have a neurological/psychological and brain scan to determine if he has changed. I think PETA serves a good purpose, but this rep was ridiculous in his reasons and medical information.

    I voted no because he really isnt a very good NFL quaterback. Amazing athlete,but not a contender to win the superbowl at the qb position. But the biggest reason I would’nt hire him is because he’s a dick to dogs. A personality trait I cant stomach.

    I voted yes and feel the same way as Brian and Bev about this. I wouldn’t want him within a hundred miles of any animal. However, he served his time and he should be allowed to make a living. As to whether or not he is a good quarterback…. I don’t even know what a quarterback does. Football has never interested me. Baseball and hockey are my sports. GO YANKEES!!

    Bev, I enjoyed your piece yesterday. Had to laugh at the “how do they pee” aspect of it. It reminded me of that nutty female astronaut with the adult diapers. Lisa Nowak was her name, I think.

    I would not hire him. He would never be allowed in the NFL again. Period. What he did or does with his life is his business. He is a sick person, a criminal, and nothing he can ever do makes up for what he did.

    I would go as far as maybe putting him in a cage, and doing what he did to the dogs to him. What would be wrong with that?

    He should be left to fend for himself, without all the publicity, unless he is a poster child as an example of total failure due to his wrong and criminal actions.

    I am off to take Batman to the vet….(he’s okay just a check up.) 🙂

    btw …….top of the morning to you all.

    I voted yes! Do the crime outside of your job, do the time, but when the time is up people have got to have a chance to go back to their jobs or else we might just as well as lock everyone up for life and throw away the keys.

  8. TempeBev

    Thanks Nanny, maybe Lisa had TravelJohn’s too! Check it out on the net. I bought some once for a camping trip. They really work.

  9. dnd

    Well, Vick has shown an aptitude to work in a slaughterhouse…

  10. *waves the finger of shame at dnd*

    Interesting question. I believe former offenders should get a second chance; I don’t think Vick’s should be in the NFL with its exorbitant salaries.

    Waffling since question doesn’t indicate what Vick should be hired to do.

    My thoughts:

    1) if he has rehabilitated, working with abused or abandoned dogs. Maybe even caring for — on his nickel — servicemembers’ pets when they’re deployed and can’t take them along. Military pets sometimes wind up in shelters.

    2) landscaping; anything that gets him out in the wide open air, but without the adulation and football salary attached

    3) working with other released prisoners in some fashion. Did he ever have his “Martha Stewart” moment? (Or “Jean Harris” moment, for those of us who remember the Scarsdale Doctor murderess.)

  12. Bachus just said they are close to a plan that will cover 95% of all Americans.

  13. nannymm

    I’ll believe it when I see it, Brian.

  14. Hey I’m just the messenger!

  15. It’s good that the white house is targeting the insurance companies. Bout friggin time. nanny this is the Wisconsin moment coming up I feel.

  16. nannymm

    I hope you’re right, Brian. It’s time for Obama to get his ass in gear and fight back.

  17. nannymm

    It’s about damned time the Dems fought back:

    Pushing back against Republican charges that President Obama’s stimulus package has been ineffective, the DNC is launching a three-pronged attack this week focused on projects being funded in the states and districts of the GOP’s congressional leadership.

    Democrats are going on the air Thursday with TV and radio spots aimed at three GOP House leaders and two Senate Republican leaders and will hold press conferences or conference calls in their states with individuals testifying to the effectiveness of the stimulus.

    In a TV commercial to be aired in Washington and on national cable, the party cites disapproving comments made about the $787 billion legislation by Sen’s Mitch McConnell (Ky.) and Jon Kyl (Ariz.) and House members John Boehner (Oh.) and Eric Cantor (Va.)

    The goal is to not only detail the benefits the stimulus opponents are seeing in their individual states, but to also lay the blame of the still-sputtering economy on the policies of the Bush administration.

    “They supported the Bush policies that sank our economy into recession,” says the narrator in the TV ad. “They broke it – now they refuse to fix it.”

    Here’s a feel-good story for today:

    http://brightsidetour.com/

    That’s what we need these days. More compliments.

  19. nannymm

    That’s a good story, dnd. Wanna be it doesn’t make the news?

  20. Ok, seriously is anyone surprised that tanning beds cause cancer?

    I was wrong. Not only did I see that story on MSNBC a few minutes ago, it was in my local paper, The Malone Telegram. Mind you, this paper is TWELVE PAGES total!

  22. dnd

    Nannymm,
    Glad to hear The Malone Telegram covers good news!

  23. dnd

    Ok, seriously is anyone surprised that texting while driving causes accidents?

  24. dnd

    Glenn Beck thinks Obama hates white people:

    Like his white mother and the white grandparents that raised him.

    Is this “Wall of Shame” material?

  25. Ever breath he takes is wall of shame material!

  26. nannymm

    Let’s just put his picture in our wall of shame.

  27. He is becoming the poster boy after all

  28. Tweety has been doing a good job lately. He’s decided to become the anti-birther, it’s a good role for him.

  29. dnd

    Being an anti-birther is like being a anti-flat earther. Tweety needs to take on more substantative issues, say the economy or health care.

  30. nannymm

    He was an ass tonight when he addressed the issue of free living will consultations being included in a healthcare bill. He just doesn’t seem to understand that people need help to understand what a living will is and to make choices as to what they want in their wills. He also don’t get that all adults should have living wills, not just seniors. Remember Terry Schiavo?

  31. And dnd I couldn’t agree less with you about birthers, flat earthers are just stupid. Birthers are hate driven and dangerous. Vonn Brunn is a birther.

    And a side note, we now have MSNBC in HD here in NYC!

  32. nannymm

    We’ve had it here on Time Warner for months, Brian. 😀

  33. dnd

    Brian,
    My point is that birthers are crackpots. I don’t care what their motivation is. Don’t give them any press. Tweety should address real issues. Giving time to crackpots just encourages them. Just ask Rush…

  34. Not possible nanny, they only just switched over to HD about a month ago. When the new sets appeared.

  35. I think it only serves the Dems well for the repug base to be shown for what it is.

  36. nannymm

    Oops! You’re right. I was thinking weeks and wrote months.

  37. Deans sounds a little more relaxed tonight.

    🙂
