  1. I agree but I think the intent is to serve as some limitation to uncontrollable spending. Doesn’t matter if they just move the goal post all the time. Neither side seems interested in managing to a budget. but one side does like to claim the high ground on fiscal responsibility even though their actions are complete opposite
  2. I actually agree with you. My only point is that I think it’s wrong to over generalize and blame ‘everybody’ when there are clear actions taken by a specific group that contributed to what we see today. It’s the same reason specific criminals go on trial rather than society, or another broad group. We need someone to run the business of govt until an algorithm proves competency. I agree we voters need to do better, but until then we can’t over generalize and let people off the hook for their actions while in office. That’s my only point.
  3. And why did the debt ceiling need to be raised? Think way back to the trump tax cuts Without sufficient spending cuts many moons ago. Raising the debt ceiling is how they keep the lights on. Otherwise the govt shuts down, remember?
  4. Saying ‘everybody’ is to blame is just wrong and you let them off the hook when you say that. Republicans had 100% control of govt for two years. They cut govt income without reducing spending like they always do. Those shiny tax cuts are nothing without equal spending cuts. It’s the same thing they did the last time they had total control (cut taxes and increase spending). I’m 42yrs old, in my lifetime I have yet to see the fiscal conservative side of the Republicans even though people talk about it like they do Bigfoot. Their actions at Fed level have always been the opposite, which is verifiably accurate. Their actions in this century matter to me and there’s no such thing as a fiscal conservative Republican today. It is false to put any/most of what we see today fiscally on the Democratic Party.
  5. Can’t wait for all the redcap construction bro’s to defend something they know is just flat out wrong in multiple ways. And defies basic understanding of common engineering practices; which weren’t really debatable until this guy. That’ll be fun.
  6. "concrete foundation was just poured and soaking wet" ....ConstructionGuy here - that's not how any of that works. In fact, companies would be fired if they had done something so dumb, OSHA would've been involved, etc. I'm shocked our construction guy prez isn't aware of that.
  7. Exactly. And best part is they can start earning a better than average wage right from the start. Put in 10yrs learning then open up shop by your ~30th bday. It’s closest to a sure thing I’m aware of. If I was in a different spot in life I’d do it.
  8. I’m degreed in construction management, great career choice. I am slowly trying to brainwash my 13 and 14 yr old “Gifted” kids to Enter the trades against my wife’s wishes. ive met a lot, and I mean a LOT of self made multi millionaires With a HS diploma and trade experience. And many whose kids have inherited the biz. With my knowledge and connections I could make their start easier. it makes so much sense it will likely never happen. the construction industry top to bottom is seeing major personnel shortages nationwide in trades and mgmt.
  9. I hope it plays out that way. I live in the south and all the bama fans are now rooting for Hurts at OU.
  10. i agree he's no where near the passer as Baker and Kyler. But it looks like Lincoln is specifically using his running to open up the WRs. I think I heard an announcer call it a PRO vs RPO style offense. I do think the WRs can get open against the better teams, though not as frequently and it will depend on our QB taking a lot of hard reps. He looks fine but eventually someone is gonna square off on him good. Given all we lost in the draft, we still look very solid. I'm glad Grinch is there and glad they are at least saying the right things. The D seems to be good in first half but much weaker in the second half against weaker teams. Hopefully they get better every week. If UGA/LSU stay strong all season, we may end up #5 or 6 with an undefeated record and even though the Hurst storyline is ripe for primetime viewing.
  11. It's amazing how these caravans magically appear and arrive to the border in time for elections, shutdowns, etc. I wonder what it costs to organize these things.
  12. This x 100. Electrical shortcuts as well. The GFIs in our master bath are wired to a GFI in the downstairs guest bath of all places. Guess where all the hair dryers and curling irons are?
  13. Mine is called the hipthruster3000 for maximum “satisfaction”. Lol
  14. I used to bike a lot more than before replacement (not in a “serious” way though like some). Since replacement I’ve noticed difficulty finding good seating position that is comfortable. I haven’t spent much time trying to solve that issue though so there may be a simple fix. Other than that when I’ve biked it’s been fine. Seat comfort has been only issue for me.
  15. I had mine replaced five years ago at age 36. It was due to a childhood injury. Best thing I’ve done. I was back to work within 4 weeks. Just take your time to let everything heal, don’t rush it but within a few months you should be feeling really good and start getting somewhat active again The worst part is that you’ll feel like you can do anything with it. I play tennis now pretty regularly with no pain or discomfort. That’s the sport I picked up to try and get cardio. My doc told me absolutely no jogging/distance running type sports and no jumping. The one time it freaked me out I played easy b-ball with my kids. Did a short hop for ball and felt a scary pop in it. It’s fine but I won’t be doing that ever again. Tennis is perfect. Watch out for the painkillers they give you. That stuff is dangerously addictive.
