  • Why is there a collusion case at all with Colin Kaepernick if there is "at will" employment in almost every state?

    No one is required to be hired in any state, and there's no such thing as "veteran's preference" or similar arguments. The man had a $19M contract, created negative attention to his team in uniform which resulted in his getting cut for cap room, and wasn't getting hired by other teams largely because of the disturbance - an argument that holds up even at hospitals, grocery stores, even Burger King.

  • Song lyrics for your perusal?

    Normally I don't push on personal issues of my own so much, but I am willing to share as the center of topic is marrying another today. This is pretty raw, but I'll take opinions.

    The Bed You’ll Lie In

    You told me a week ago

    Of boxes left behind

    You said if I needed them, you'd drop by

    But the answer I already know

    Those are boxes you didn't find

    I don't know what to say to you since the day you said goodbye

    I gave it everything

    I gave you everything

    Sacrificing so much pride

    Wild abandon became

    Abandoning a dream

    Pushing me and boxes to the side

    Still, you never ran too far

    As friends and family played their hand

    A piece of mail, a business call - little ways to say you're still tryin'

    Now that new car in your yard

    Says your heart must now make a stand

    Cause if love isn't dead

    You're making the bed you'll lie in

    INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

    Listening to a snake dancer’s laughter

    At the cold tack you’ve chosen

    To choose not to undo the wrong

    You will marry so soon after

    The love we had turning frozen

    Not wanting to see if I was gone

    I gave it everything

    You gave up everything

    Sacrificing so much pride

    Wild abandon became

    Abandoning a dream

    Pushing me and boxes to the side

    Still, you never ran too far

    As acquaintances would demand

    Promises sold to a stranger, too sad to look back cryin'

    You have ruffed a cold trump card

    Though you cannot win the hand

    Cause if love isn't dead

    You’re making the bed that you'll lie in

    INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE #2

    I gave it everything

    You gave up everything

    Sacrificing so much pride

    Wild abandon became

    Abandoning a dream

    As all friendship and romance has died

    Still is the night without a star

    Any wish draws reprimand

    The short, hard truth, now there’s no denyin’

    This has truly gone too far

    And the timer is out of sand

    Cause if love isn't dead

    You’ve just made the bed that you'll lie in

    Cause if love isn't dead

    I’m making the bed I'll lie in

  • Song lyrics for your perusal. Please give more than a "one-word" response (pun intended)....?

    I guess you'll find I love puns. Lyrics section is blowing this off.

    That Was All She Wrote

    She woke up one night and decided it was over

    I came home from work to find out she was gone

    We would fight, but the bottom line is I still love her

    I thought she knew this was true, but I guess I’m wrong

    CHORUS #1

    For there on the table that caught my eye

    Was a simple, hand-written note

    She had chosen a single word, “goodbye”,

    And that was all she wrote

    Maybe I’ve been working on working too hard

    Maybe I shouldn’t have let things just be

    Maybe there was too much time apart

    To show what she really meant to me

    Well, hindsight has such perfect visions

    When you’re busy and selfish, you don’t set things straight

    You allow outside pressure inside decisions

    From the looks of things now, it’s just too late

    CHORUS #1

    For there on the table that caught my eye

    Was a simple, hand-written note

    She had chosen a single word, “goodbye”,

    And that was all she wrote

    BRIDGE

    I never knew why I blew my one last chance

    Was it too hot-headed or more romance?

    If she’d stayed, I’d give in to all demands

    But my fate is no longer in my hands

    CHORUS #2

    For there on the table getting wet from my eye

    Was a simple, hand-written note

    She had chosen a single word, “goodbye”,

    And that was all she wrote

    And that was all she wrote

    And that was all she wrote

    She left a single word note

    And that was all she wrote

  • Just wrote this in the poetry section off a prompt for an original piece about the moon. New lyrics! Like them?

    I BLAME THE MOON

    First more, now less than friends

    Love ducked in and out again

    This isn't where the story ends

    But it's where I must contend

    That the heart goes in innocent

    All indications heaven sent

    A chance to shine, a chance to vent

    Another chance just came and went

    CHORUS

    It must be the moon playing tricks on me

    I'd never ask for this kind of misery

    Watching all turn with the tide

    But the swells are never done inside

    Since I can't see why I'm still blue

    But I see the moon - I blame you

    You learn from sources more than school

    The day starts warm and then ends cool

    Gravity always makes its pull

    Love seems to make me a fool

    The only constant when things aren't right

    Was that silver moon laughing bright

    Hiding the truth from the morning light

    Never revealing secrets of the night

    CHORUS

    It must be the moon playing tricks on me

    I'd never ask for this kind of misery

    Watching all turn with the tide

    But the swells are never done inside

    Since I can't see why I'm still blue

    But I see the moon - I blame you

    Why must you meddle with my world like this?

    Why can't you let me keep more than a kiss?

    It must be the moon playing tricks on me

    I'd never ask for this kind of misery

    Watching all turn with the tide

    But the swells are never done inside

    I'll never see why we are through

    So damn the moon - I blame you

    I blame the moon

    I blame the moon

  • Song lyrics for your opinion. What do you think of my work?

    It's kind of Dave Matthews meets Hal Ketchum. Here goes:

    Square One

    Sundown becomes sunset fast

    The future becomes the past

    Lists of dreams that didn't last

    The die of fate is cast

    Another day come and gone

    Always back to Square One

    The Spinners, Bob Seger then Kid Rock

    On sale items go out of stock

    Doors open, then they lock

    Constant circling of the clock

    The chimes ring in a steady run

    Always back to Square One

    On and on and on and on and on

    On and on and on and on and on

    Fashion picks another style

    Signposts add another mile

    Shredded papers from a file

    More changes all the while

    You win some, and you lose some

    Always back to Square One

    Birth, nurtured, until grown

    Another promised seed is sown

    Try to learn all the unknown

    Black then green then brown the lawn

    A little more rain, a little sun

    Always back to Square one

    On and on and on and on and on

    On and on and on and on and on

    Proud parents' daughter or son

    First lose innocence then the fun

    You're lonesome, you choose someone

    Lucky at love and then it's gone

    Spiral down the heart forlorn

    Just to find a better one

    All the power of King Kong

    Hopeful scavengers led along

    Until your call to life is done

    Always back to Square One

    Always back to Square One

    STILL

    This road I have traveled

    No one will condone

    Confused, and unraveled

    No light has yet shown

    So I walk alone

    These people I see

    All born so blessed

    Living so free

    Giving much less

    So I walk alone

    Random, outcast

    A friend was all I asked

    Left with tears to nurse

    Distracted by this curse

    This road I have traveled

    Chills to the bone

    Cold as the gravel

    I have gathered and thrown

    So I walk alone

    So I walk alone

    Still I walk alone

  • Song lyrics for your review?

    Here's a song I wrote a couple years ago.

    Swimming With Daffodils

    She works late at Hot Topic

    She’s lookin’ kinda mean

    Fifty pierces showing

    And her blue hair’s fairly clean

    Skin tight, holed-out jeans,

    Pushed by about two-fitty,

    You could be a true Christian

    And still say she’s sort of pretty

    CHORUS

    And she’s followed her heart, changing her name

    To something she really feels

    Her mother used to call her Jane,

    Now she’s Swimming With Daffodils

    She left family in a fight

    One bag that she could carry

    Did whatever she wanted

    Then married military

    Freedom was ten times better

    Than stares at the exchange

    All the neighbors marveled

    How she left and didn’t change

    CHORUS

    BRIDGE

    Now she finally made her place

    In a city that doesn’t mind her

    And she’s found her path to faith and grace

    Should one day her husband find her

    She works late at Hot Topic

    She’s lookin’ kinda mean

    Sixty pierces showing

    Her bright green hair’s fairly clean

    Skin tight, holed-out jeans,

    Pushed by about three-fitty,

    You could be Wiccan just like her

    And still say she’s sort of pretty

    CHORUS

    And she’s followed her heart, changing her name

    To something she really feels

    Her mother used to call her Jane,

    Now she’s Swimming With Daffodils

    And she’s followed her heart, changing her name

    To Swimming With Daffodils

    Swimming With Daffodils

    Swimming With Daffodils

  • I touched this lyrics piece up, and it rhymes better. Your thoughts?

    Hopefully, you haven't seen it before so it can surprise you.

    Ain’t It Funny

    There are people everywhere, needing someone there to care,

    Someone just to be there, good or bad.

    Your heart says, “This is it!” then your loved one says “I quit”,

    Instead of joy and grit, you’re only sad.

    Ain’t it funny how we love so very much,

    But together we can’t ever find this love?

    Well, it ain’t that funny

    No, it ain’t that funny

    I’m gonna tell ya that it

    Ain’t that funny at all

    You find the partner for your soul, give the fateful dice a roll,

    You put every hope and goal inside the bet.

    When it’s all said and done, neither you nor they have won,

    And the sure thing now is gone, and both regret.

    Ain’t it funny how people who hurt you worst

    Make promises to always save love first?

    Well, it ain’t that funny

    No, it ain’t that funny

    I’m gonna tell ya that it

    ain’t that funny at all

    BRIDGE

    It ain’t nothing I should lose any sleep over,

    Though I lose sleep over losing you each night;

    It ain’t nothing I can keep apologizing for,

    Though it’s obvious I just can’t get it right.

    8 BAR INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

    Well, it ain’t that funny

    No, it ain’t that funny

    I’m gonna tell ya that it

    Ain’t that funny at all

    Well, it ain’t that funny

    People, it just ain’t that funny

    I’m calling out to you

    It ain’t that funny at all

    So why am I still laughing? (music fade)

  • Another set of song lyrics to savor and review. Your thoughts?

    Don’t Have a Home

    Got a place to lay my head and mope when I have to go to sleep

    A washer and some laundry soap, and a fridge for food to keep

    I’ve got simple things aplenty that give apartments due

    But this place still feels empty – it’s missing something true....

    Don’t know why this life is so unkind

    Don’t know why I can’t have peace of mind

    Being here alone….Being here alone

    Don’t know why it has to be this way

    Without you here in my life each day

    I don’t have a home….I don’t have a home

    There’s some dolls smiling on the bed where my daughter’s head should be

    I’m usually on my son’s instead, on those nights he should be with me

    I wish there was more I could do to make a castle from a fort

    After all the hell that I’ve been through, now the court tripled child support

    Don’t know why this life is so unkind

    Don’t know why I can’t have peace of mind

    Being here alone….Being here alone

    Don’t know why it has to be this way

    Without you here in my life each day

    I don’t have a home….I don’t have a home

    Why can’t a single parent be a man?

    Are children without fathers the new plan?

    Is it wrong to ask for your own family

    Just to end up poor without love or identity?

    I’ve got simple things aplenty that give apartments due

    But this place still feels empty – it’s missing both of you....

    Don’t know why this life is so unkind

    Don’t know why I can’t have peace of mind

    Being here alone….Being here alone

    Don’t know why it has to be this way

    Without you here in my life each day

  • How good is this lyrics set? Being myself....?

    Here's lyrics I wrote. Please look at them, enjoy them and tell me what you think.

    I’ll Just Be Myself Tonight

    In the past I’ve been known to force the action

    To try and get in a little quick satisfaction

    But you’re so different, girl, so much more than appetite

    I think that I’ll just be myself tonight

    In days of old I would screen and analyze

    Then mysteriously I would don my disguise

    Never to return by the warmth of new light

    I want more, so I want to be myself tonight

    What is there to gain?

    With love in disdain,

    One seed of grain

    Bears gift with the rain.

    Life is so plain

    When love can’t remain.

    Distributing pain -

    But never again.

    No more will I live under dark pretensions

    With layers of charm wrapped around false intentions

    I see the right and wrong of love, and I’ll do it right

    Finally seeing myself, being myself tonight

  • New song lyrics I wrote for your perusal?

    You'll have to guess how much of this is actually happening.

    THE WHOLE TIME

    You disappear from view

    You hold yourself in

    You say you're still lonely to all your friends

    It's too hard for you

    To be without dreams again

    And you wonder if this is how the story ends

    Well you know I've always wanted to be your man

    And you know I want to help you if I can

    If you look real hard, I am sure you'll find

    I've been here the whole damn time

    Looking for that knight

    In armor made of gold

    With a flashing smile and gentle loving hands

    Still you believe despite

    The past that left you cold

    And you wonder if this is how the story ends

    Then when I come to you, you just turn away

    Playing solitary games that I can't play

    If you ever have a partner game in mind

    I've been here the whole damn time

    BRIDGE

    I know you're not to blame for everything

    But why do you keep taking on and off that ring?

    Can you believe in your doubting heart that love is blind

    Cause I've been here the whole damn time

    I've been here the whole damn time

    Yes, I've been here the whole time

    Right now the featured stories are about an MTV contest judge sleeping with a 15 year old and Lindsay Lohan stopping a Disney-sponsored tour. How do you feel about this? Are the political powers diverting attention to keep their pawns in office, or is young adult America this blind to the important issues?
