game 62: bobcats @ trailblazers

8 posts in this topic

i know nobody is watching. i jumped in at the 4th quarter, not looking good. it's funny because the pacers i think aren't even trying to win anymore they know they have the spot locked up. both bobcats and pacers will be on a 4 game losing streak after tonight.

bobcats trail by a half game despite not winning a game in about two weeks.

Was watching after Carolina/ Duke game. Was close at 3rd, but like bobcats of old can't close a game out. Portland was on a run and up by 11 when I stopped watching

Bobs have lost their two best players in the last two weeks and Kwame's offensive output hasn't been sustained.

Such is life. Best hope those draft picks turn into something this year.

Given the drafting history, nothing much is exciting me about this team right now. They're on a fast-track to the sh*tter, and I don't know what kind of impact Tyrus Thomas will have when he returns. There is no continuity and Diaw looks like total horse sh*t. I really want him gone, but will learn to be patient.

    • 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.
