When you loose you pro bowl defensive presence and see your star wide receiver aging like the rest of it, and loosing a step or two... it's hard to get "excited"!

BUT I am anxious. I see a lot of new faces this year, and I can't wait to get this season underway. I think we'll surprise some people.

Ever since our 7-9 season in 02 (Fox's first year) I've always like counted down the days until the opening of our training camp. Maybe its because I don't think we're going to be that good this year, but I can't say I'm that excited. In fact, I'm not that excited about the NFL as a whole. I'm not even that excited for college football, and my team is the defending BCS Champs ROLL DAMN TIDE!!!. Hopefully I'll come around soon but camp is about to start in a few weeks, and I'm just not there yet for some reason...idk.

Kill yourself.

    • From the ssa wiki part on its history: The Social Security law was very unpopular among many groups, especially farmers, who resented the additional taxes and feared they would never be made good. They lobbied hard for exclusion. Furthermore, the Treasury realized how difficult it would be to set up payroll deduction plans for farmers, for housekeepers who employed maids, and for nonprofit groups; therefore they were excluded. State employees were excluded for constitutional reasons (the federal government cannot tax state government). Federal employees were also excluded. Many textbooks, however, falsely indicate that the exclusions were the product of southern racial hostility toward blacks; there is no evidence of that in the record.[15] Other scholars have replicated and endorsed DeWitt's analysis, agreeing that the exclusions were made by policy experts on technical grounds and were not grounded on racial hostility. Rodems and Shaefer note in all other countries unemployment insurance programs "excluded domestic and agricultural workers when they were first implemented, a fact that the key New Deal policy makers were well aware of.   Interesting stuff.

    • this is an old story that anti-progressive media is pushing. all that happened is she applied for a loan for the college, for which they're required to submit a list of their donations so the office knows that they're able to pay back the loans. she submitted the list but included bequeathmets on the donor list instead of as a separate list, assuming they counted as donations. that's it. that's the entire story. it's a minor paperwork error that comes with a small fine.
