  1. I am under no obligation to boff sidez anything. I call it like I see it. There are legitimate gripes like @bigbottompoints out, but there are also areas like the afore-mentioned "Snow White = sexual assault" that makes me think y'all see getting trolled. Also, my earlier rant is more on the "woke" bit - hyper SJW stuff. I am not really commenting on firing someone for expressing political views.
  2. I don't watch right wing media but I know it's a running topic on fox news. I can tell that by the links in this thread. Also, from the links my dad sends me and posts on Facebook. Based on that, cancel culture is one of their favorite topics,. That, and how the site man is the true victim here.
  3. That's a lot of interpretation on the basis of two words. It kind of reads like, " I'm not even going to bother understanding the argument and instead I will just lob unjustified accusations of following Hannity" The way I meant "I'm convinced" is this: I have formed my own strong opinion on the basis of observations and commentary. As always, you are more than free to disagree but please don't ever accuse me of parroting Hannity again. That is as grave an insult as someone can lob. I am deeply offended and demand that you edit your original post and promise to never do it again.
  4. I'm convinced "woke" is just a giant troll job...a giant fishing trip. Someone makes some sort of outlandish claim just to see how many people they can hook and how much outrage they can create, just for the lulz. And our right wing media falls for it, every time. They can't get enough. They love it, because they are in on it. They know full well how many eyeballs "woke" outrage will bring them.
  5. to be faiiiiir, the riots of last summer could be considered revolting against municipal police forces, and by this definition, insurrections.
  6. not to speak for the CDC, but I would say it's prolonged (i.e. > 2 hours) close proximity to people outside your social circle. I would also expect this to be loosened up as more studies are completed.
  7. I don't consider wearing a mask or getting vaccinated political - these are health and safety measures. IMO, mask usage is similar to seatbelts or helmets. if you find safety to be political, thats on you.
  8. Huh. I certainly don't feel discriminated against as a white man. IIRC, FBG is mostly white, middle-aged men. Perhaps we should set up a poll to see if discrimination against whites is a problem.
  9. It makes sense to me that a labor shortage could be related to inflation. I know we are seeing that too. I don't think that's at fault WRT the various commodities listed, except maybe truckers and lumber.
  10. I don't know that this is really an inflation thing. It's not a matter of things being more expensive, it's that we physically can't get them. Obviously, that drives up prices but this doesn't feel like it's just a devaluation of currency thing. I think it's more about the disruption to supply chains brought on by COVID finally working it's way thru the system. Demand increased much faster and ahead of supply after both being suppressed for most of last year. I'd love to hear more from actual economists about the causes and effects of these shortages.
  11. well, the good news is if you can't get microchips, you don't need tin solder to attach them.
  12. Okay, pork belly prices have been dropping all morning, which means that everybody is waiting for it to hit rock bottom, so they can buy low. Which means that the people who own the pork belly contracts are saying, "Hey, we're losing all our damn money, and Christmas is around the corner, and I ain't gonna have no money to buy my son the G.I. Joe with the kung-fu grip! And my wife ain't gonna f... my wife ain't gonna make love to me if I got no money!" So they're panicking right now, they're screaming "SELL! SELL!" to get out before the price keeps dropping. They're panicking out there right n
  13. this is a big one for a lot of people: Chick-Fil-A sauce. my kids will be devastated.
  14. not to speak for the ole @SWC'er, but perhaps he means a remote mountain cabin that is on the bank of a river.
  15. I'm seeing a lot of shortages lately, with a lot of different reasons. Gas - caused by hackers & ransomware attack Lumber - caused by skyrocketing demand as we come out of COVID silicon chips - factories shut down while demand boomed plastics - raw good manufacturers shut down when Texas froze What else?
  16. The Exxon on Carowinds Blvd, immediately after you get off I77 (north side of road) had gas when I was driving in this morning. Of course, there was a line all the way out the street and onto the interstate exit ramp.
  17. My kids (12 & 14) have had phones for years. We use screentime to limit their usage and what apps they are allowed to use. We also use bark to monitor content (but rarely check it) and life360 for location tracking. No Facebook, no Snapchat, no Instagram, no Twitter. They use their phones to communicate with friends, play games, listen to music, and other misc things. They have a lot of freedom but are locked down pretty well at the same time.
  18. This season obviously comes down to Lock. On paper, Broncos have one of, if not the best defenses in the league - pro-bowl safeties in KJax & Simmons, former all-pro in Fuller @ CB plus Darby, Callahan & Surtain II. Von and Chubb on the edge, and an above average IDL. Only weak spot is mlb but Alexander Johnson has been more than adequate. It's a young and loaded offense at the skill positions, a pro-bowl LT, good guards. Cushenberry struggled last year, if he doesn't improve, Meinerz will be the guy. The only thing holding this team back from a deep playoff run is QB
  19. Your question was - "my trivia question for today is .... what are the chances a healthy person under the age of 50 gets covid and dies ? give me a percentage." however, the 200M is not all healthy people under 50, that number is all people under 50. I think I read that around 2/3 of Americans have at least one comorbidity - high blood pressure, asthma, cancer, over weight, smoker, etc. We aren't a healthy people. @Alex P Keatonwas correct - we don't know the number of healthy people under the age of 50, nor do we know the number of people under 50 who died of COVID who w
  20. Has anyone drawn a parallel to cutler's tantrum in 2008? New management comes in and immediately talks about bringing in Matt Cassel. cutler pouted his way out of town. New management was forever hated and was fired 2 years later (although he did go 6-0 with Kyle Orton before the wheels fell off). cutler and Rodgers are no where near the same level of ability or pedigree. cutler was entering his 4th year and had never won more than 8 games in a season. I definitely sided with management in that fiasco but with full benefit of hindsight, I came to REALLY dislike mcdaniels too. So
  21. to be fair, Favre didn't fall off a cliff in 2005. Yes, the Pack had a bad year that year. they went 8-8 in 2006, 13-3 in 2007, Favre returning to the pro-bowl. He went to the Jets and then Vikings where he went 12-4 and was a, OT game away from the Superbowl. He didn't fall off the cliff until 2010.
  22. my concern is that by the time we find the next great QB, the youngsters will have "graduated". unrestricted FA's after this season: Von, Bridgewater, Fuller, Gordon, Callahan, Kareem Jackson, Patrick, Alexander Johnson, Sutton. That's a lot of pending FA's, and probably what this draft was about addressing - Surtain, Williams, and the safeties for sure. I think most of these guys will walk - they will want to get paid or play for a contender. If we don't get improved QB play, it will be impossible to convince these guys we are a contender and they should stick around.
  23. If they were the case, the shark move is to trade back from 9. Allegedly bears offered a 2022 #1, which would probably be high if Fields busts. That plus Broncos own #1 would give the ammo to trade into the top 2 or 3, putting them in a GREAT position to reboot if Teddy/Lock can't get it done.
