  1. He's a freshman, who has shown already he's an impact player in college. There's no way to know what he can become.
  2. I agree with you of course, but I don't know that an article giving greater emphasis to that does anything. Unless there is a real solution to curbing the conduct of those people who may go to a venue, the venue is the issue.
  3. So that people focus on that red herring and ignore other components of the bill, such as the ability to replace election officials who won’t play along with the 2024 big lie.
  4. GOP uses terms like ‘election integrity’ and ‘law and order’ in orwellian doublespeak.
  5. Ahh, that makes sense. I was confused because one GA legislator (outlandishly IMHO) made the same ‘Delta shouldn’t bite the hand...” when justifying the bill to eliminate a tax cut as retribution. Delta CEO took the high road and said this is about the rights of Americans, not money.
  6. I’m having pronoun confusion in your final paragraph, but if you are referring to corporations, it’s past time for them to speak up if they learned anything from the big lie, and it’s potential ramifications to our democracy. The idea of states passing laws enabling replacement of election officials who are strong is a legitimate threat.
  7. I’m not sure if it is actually final but my understanding is GA house passed a bill to eliminate a fuel tax cut that hurt Delta after its CEO made negative statements about the new voter laws. Champions of the first amendment.
  8. Good for MLB. The Delta tax thing was vindictive and deplorable. My hope is the GA legislators wind up in an unwinnable game of whacamole. Also it is a strong message to other states... this crap is not going to fly under radars anymore.
  9. Nope, advised to register for the event on April 29th as a 2nd.
  10. No. We signed up for it but had not heard anything. Also had not received anything from my primary physician after signing up for my mychart. We just decided not to continue sitting on our hands patiently waiting for those managing lists to get around to us, while other eligibles were being more proactive (and increasing our wait). What we did was go to the vax connection site, went to find vax locations, entered 56484, and cass county popped as the 1st choice. Clicking it’s web link, it brought up the event they had today, and a link to register for it. After the experience today, se
  11. FWIW, not a reply to your question but you might look outside the metro if you have a few hours to do it. Wife/I just returned from a vax event in Cass County (Walker) that still had openings as of 1:30 when we got there. 8 or so nurses ready to dispense and 5 registrants in the room when we were there (only one of the nurses gave a shot while we were in the 15 minute post-shot wait area). Rural areas baffle me, but I’m not complaining going from F5 fatigue in the metro to registered/1st shot complete over a 24 hour period. Think they have another next week, displayed on the MN vax finder site
  12. Ditto x2. Tired of the rat race in the Minneapolis metro so I was ecstatic when the wife found a distribution event up in the rural north, about 30 minutes from our cabin. Scheduled for 2 PM. It’s moderna - fine by me as I was hoping for either that or Pfizer. Can’t really imagine what it will be like actually rounding a bend on this thing.
  13. Yes, and maybe open to lawsuits from the other direction if they do not. It's definitely not an easy situation for an employer.
  14. Anyone doing any projects related to lumber? I put off a deck redo last year when I saw reports of $ increase on lumber. Have costs returned to norms or still high?
  15. Maybe, but what is the venn diagram of anti vax and people already doing whatever they want?
  16. Earlier this week it was rumored that my group would be opened next (yeah!) and then official news broke yesterday that eligibility is opened to anyone 16+. I guess in the grand scheme it's best to go full boar since my lifestyle choices make me least likely to transmit, but boy, that goal post feels like it got significantly farther away now that I need to get into the "everyone else" line..
  17. My only IRA is at TIAA. I have 401K's at each of Vanguard/Fidelity. I'd previously looked into whether I could convert the 401K's to IRAs for a different reason (estate planning, as my experience inheriting a roll over IRA under a parent's estate was so much better than immediate taxation). However, stopped looking into that when I was told roll over rules had changed in recent years.
  18. Yeah, I get it. I actually love this thread to expand my understanding/awareness, even if ever so slightly. My game plan up to now has been target fund for a 20 year younger person.
  19. I get it, but there’s a big difference between placement of trust re: fantasy football and retirement funds. I know I can’t do it on my own. I also know my ignorance makes it impossible to identify whether a virtual I-stranger is giving great or horrific advice. And I don’t mean that as a slight to anyone, including BNB. I could never feel confident doing anything but set/forget in a basic fund.
  20. I’m not sure what her ‘internet groups’ are exactly. She claims algorithm based. In recent years she mentioned programming bots to do her actions, and I just pictured her money going poof. I’ve told her it’s far more likely she’s mixed up akin to the old poker adage, ‘if you look around the table and can’t spot the mark, it’s you’ - but she’s too proud to accept that. Certainly her groups appeared to be great when she reaped the $250k gain.
  21. Sadly, I don’t think she has come to that realization yet at all, based on her subsequent insistence to have our roll overs placed somewhere she could keep her mitts all over it.
  22. This may be fine for some people, but certainly not a general rule. I've been set it and forget it for 25 years. My sister OTOH fancied herself as more shrewd/"internet group informed" and has become broke twice. She actually had one situation where she had gains in the range of $250K which she lost nearly overnight re-investing the gain toward another hyped stock that tanked... resulting in a monumental tax consequence, and a bankruptcy. We each subsequently received a $110K roll over IRA that I put into a basic fund and she, of course, wanted it in a fund she could manage herself as an activ
  23. I was forwarded a tweet where someone successfully called Walmart to join a "no waste" list, and it resulted in Walmart calling him and a 1st dose - despite him not yet being eligible under state guidelines. Gotta say, this bugs me. I/wife signed up under our state registry and provided text info to be alerted when/if vax becomes available. The idea of ineligible folks creating back channels, and an ecosystem where a vax distributor is using a back channel list rather than working with the formal registry system to alert eligible people who have requested text alerts, just seems wrong. Them re
  24. This is why I don't step on a scale when I'm in a good routine. You've been doing such a good job GB, trust the process. The results will come. ETA: I think I misread your initial 'all good things come to an end' since your last statement was that you are sticking to it.
