  1. Sorry, my bad there. I always got them confused for some reason, fixed it.
  2. If he can get Mexico to cooperate and truly do it, I'll give him credit. I think it was foolish to ever change it, and IMO it's way too late. But at least it appears there is some recognition now of they can't just abandon something that was the better policy because it was related to Trump. What's going on now is untenable and maybe that is finally spurring action, at least we can hope. Although it looks like they are being forced into this position by the Texas and Missouri lawsuits. So not sure how much of this is a kudos and how much of this is a dragging kicking and screaming.
  3. My response would be they are more reactive to people's words than their actions. Tyreek Hill is back playing. Anyone want to take the under on the time it takes John Gruden to get back in the league for an email compared to a guy who beat the *!*$@ out of a woman?
  4. Dave Roberts is one of the nicest guys in baseball, but sometimes his strategic thinking I just don't comprehend. He brought Treinen in to face 7-8-9 for the Giants and didn't make a double switch. It resulted in Treinen's spot coming up 2nd in the top of the next inning in a tie game. He was locked in to only the one inning as a result. Had the Dodgers not scored in the 9th, they were in real trouble.
  5. MLB claims they rate these guys. If that's the case, Morales should be spending the rest of postseason at home on the couch. The home plate umpire was pretty off all night but that is a call if you call it a swing, you have to be sure.
  6. I think you need to review the Ray Rice timeline from our trusted CNN and let me know if this timeframe shows an organization that truly cares about violence against women. https://www.cnn.com/2014/09/09/us/ray-rice-timeline/index.html And before you say it's changed today, keep in mind the Dolphins are actively pursuing a trade for a player with 22 separate allegations of sexual assault against him. Now, he could be innocent, but what a massive conspiracy that would take. But given that, I think it's fair to ask ourselves whether the entire Dolphins organization is full of fools, or they have reason to believe the league is going to eventually allow Deshaun Watson to skate? Why would they believe that? Perhaps it's the history in the league. The league is in a hurry to be woke and we can argue whether that's good or bad. There's little doubt the league has actively tried to suppress these abhorrent acts against women. They're doing it right now suppressing these WFT emails. I can go on and give more examples from the past if need be.
  7. As with most anything, you get people dependent and it can't go away.
  8. It's ok to the NFL to beat up women, sexually assault them, be a felon. We've seen many cases of it already.
  9. I have wondered the same. I suspect it may be hard to undo this little prepayment once it's started because people are relying on it. Let's say the payments stopped, suddenly instead of a refund you now owe a tax bill as well. It's not going to be easy for people just getting by on those payments to dig out from that. It's a problem of our own creation.
  10. Of course, especially the period starting with TARP. But the fact it took this long to surface tells about how bad of shape we were truly in. I always felt Obama did what he had to in that time and the fact that inflation never came from it in many ways proves that out. However, the indicators have flipped and it's apparent that we don't need more cash being pumped in right now. It's almost suicidal from an economic standpoint when all the signs are there to be wanting to inject and spend so much more. I mean look at interest rates and then compare them to inflation. There is no precedent for this path. Inflation has always been battled by higher rates, and we insist on keeping rates low and are planning to inject even more cash. It truly boggles the mind.
  11. There are people, at least locally, that are using the payments from the prepaid tax credit to get by rather than go back to work. I've had employers trying to find people tell me that is the reasoning they are being given on why people aren't coming back, or don't feel they need to. We need to be paying attention that there is a significant portion of folks willing to get by at the minimum level rather than work. It's not something that is good or I like admitting, but the evidence is there.
  12. It’s not just Trump supporters that feel that way but yes they are a big subset of that group.
  13. Saw that number come across. Scary stuff
  14. It’s way beyond Trump. It’s truly what kind of country the two sides want to live in. One with more government than we have today with more safety nets or one where it feels the government is already too involved. There’s no story thats going to soothe that divide for either side. Neither really wants to participate or live in the vision of the other, at increasingly any cost.
