My first reaction was to say, "Welp, good thing he didn't win the big gig, then!". And then I thought that after Trump and the early stages of Biden, it'd probably be a positive if the president just sort of disappeared for a couple months without any real announcements being made.

Congress too.

Some jobs really don't provide the luxury of extended maternity leave, especially for people that didn't actually give birth.  That comes with the territory.  I would say Sec. of Transportation would be one of those jobs.

Carl Nassib - the NFL's first openly gay player, and a free agent SIGNED by Gruden - "took a personal day" today because.....because his HC was fired for being a bigot?!?

Do people ever know when to just shut up and take the W?

Don't tell that to JK Rowling.  

Is she actually "cancelled", though? Her books are still available and new Harry Potter stuff is still being created, regardless of how much Twitter Bitches are bitching about her opinions. I mean, they can bitch 24/7 and all-caps type "CANCELLED!!!!" and whatever, but as long as she wants to write, has any method to publishing what she writes and has any sort of audience willing to read what she writes, no number of angry online voices are going to actually matter.

Today on Barstool, Jerry Thornton wrote a pretty good dealie about Dave Chappelle and how the same "try to cancel" brigade is doomed to failure as far as he's concerned. Some trans people are upset about his new special and a few that work for Netflix are doing a walk-out or something along those lines in protest of Netflix's promotion of his stuff. The basic gist of it all was that while those people are well within their rights to decide they don't agree with something and want to protest it, when push comes to shove, they're easily replaceable cogs in a corporation's machine, while a guy like Chappelle makes millions upon millions for them and is the sort of talent that's not going to be dumped over hurt feelz as long as that money is coming in. Could say the same for Spotify/Joe Rogan or the continued existence and success of Barstool itself.

Indeed.

Cardinals

Bills

Rams

Chargers

Bucs (Their Secondary is a mess)

Cowboys

Packers

Browns

Ravens

Chiefs


As a Bengals fan I can’t put them in the top 10 yet. They have had an easy schedule and lost to the bears. They will finish the season probably just below .500. Zac Taylor is awful but the continued improvement will save his job. One more good draft this off-season and Bengals should start competing reguwith the top 10.

THIS IS NOT A VACCINE.  MAYBE IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE BUT ITS NOT ACTING LIKE ONE.

One thing I've always kind of low-key loved about the Internet is how stupid people love to post their talking points in all caps. Like, in their minds, they're strongly making their point, but to everyone else, it's a big neon sign blaring "Idiotic Shit Ahead".

You pay FICA on every dollar you earn, starting as a teenager working part-time.  But your benefit is calculated only off your top 35 years of contributions.

And, again, your math is way off.  A person making $20 per hours would contribute less than $250k (INCLUDING the employer share, ignoring inflation) over 45 years.

So your math and assumption is that the person got no raise in 35 years? Come on, use an ACTUAL realistic assumption.


If you use 3% raise per year, which is typical and actually low as that is including no promotions at all, just same job and cost of living increases...that's $500,000 contributed from 20 to 65 for someone who starts at $20/hr.


If we assume some promotions or other raises and that puts that average wage increase per year at 4% the number is $654,000 contributed.


You are that hell bent on trying to prove me wrong that you pulled a completely non realistic case rather than realistic. How many people do you know that work for 45 years and don't get yearly raises?


My dad is nearing that age of 65, he makes $35/hr now, when he was 20 he made $7/hr full time (about 5x what he made at 20).


I have been working for 20 years and I make 3x what I did at 20 already. 


My dad works a union hourly job, I am a salaried engineer (for comparison). 


Come on, be smarter than that.


I literally said that a person making $20/hr in their 20s will contribute $600k (with their employer contributions) by the time they are 65. That is factual information you tried to dispute with some asinine "never get a raise" fictional person.


I have never met anyone who worked from their 20s to 60s, the whole time, and didn't make WAY more in their 60s than they did in their 20s.


You hate me so much you made up some BS scenario in your mind to try to prove me wrong, when in fact I was right.


I can share the spreadsheet if you can't do the math, I will copy/paste the math here for you (yes, I am boardering on ad hominem and I know that, but you are getting ridiculous, almost as bad as SnL was).

 Treasury proposed requiring financial institutions to annually report the total amount of money that went in and out of bank, loan and investment accounts if those accounts hold a value of at least $600, or if the total is at least $600 in a year. 


That means that if the total debits (funds flowing out of the account) and credits (funds flowing into the account) equal at least $600 — including deposited paychecks or money transferred from finance apps like Cash App or PayPal — banks would have to report those figures to the IRS.
