Re: 2019 Baseball Season

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that the Red Sox were allowing an average of 4.7 runs a game and they had to get that number down to have a serious chance to make the post-season. They've actually gotten much worse since then. They've allowed an average of over 7 runs a game in their last 16 games. You...

Stop that. I had to talk B&W off the ledge a few weeks ago when he had visions of WW3.

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

I'm probably going to spend the weekend under my desk, curled up in the fetal position. I have a very bad feeling about what's going to happen on Monday when the market opens.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

It was much better than Cats That's a pretty low bar. For years, my wife wanted to see the stage version of Cats. I would have preferred to have my fingernails removed with a pair of pliers. So it came to town right around my wife's birthday and I bought two tickets. I suggested she take her (unmar...

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

Well, Melinda's plan is to spend much more. The video interview attached to that article is amazing. The wife of a multi-billionaire, who likely hasn't scrubbed a toilet or vacuumed a carpet in her entire adult life, lecturing men on their need to do more housework. I could only watch 5 minutes of i...

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

I understand the thought process of progressive taxation. My point is that the federal income tax is already incredibly progressive. Nearly half of Americans have so little income that they pay no federal income tax. The tax code is not the reason that so many people earn so little income. We mostly...

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

"We should be taxing the wealthy more than middle-class, middle-class more than low-income." WTF is she talking about? The top 10 percent of all taxpayers pay 70% of the federal income tax collected. The top 50 percent of all taxpayers pay 97% of the federal income tax collected. How much...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I've never broken my ankle, but a co-worker who once did told me that it hurt like hell.

Late night in the ER, particularly on a Friday or Saturday night, can be a nightmare. Years ago I had to bring my son to the ER on a Saturday night and we didn't got home until dawn.
