#3305011 College/Trade Schools

Posted by teeray on Today, 01:02 AM

To late (or early) for a high effort post. But i strongly feel that trade education needs to come back to public high schools.

Bring back things like auto shop and woodworking.

Also, let's quit the boo-hooing about the Tinderbox being nothing but a bunch of loud atheists who shout down poor sad little conservative bunnies. Line up the main contributors to this forum and off the top of my head you get

IMO that's a pretty dead-set even split between posters in terms of time spent in this forum and the positions on theism that each group holds (granted I may have missed some really obvious names and I may have gotten people split into the wrong group. I'm just guessing.) I'm guessing the whining comes from the fact that only one of those groups can really hold their ground with evidence and the other has to use tone arguments and god-of-the-gaps arguments to maintain any kind of position, which invariably leads to grudging annoyance at their arrogance. How dare you privilege your knowledge over my instinct!

Oh well.


That moment when you realize you are not a TB contributor.

#3304197 What is with the Christian hate?

At times both Atheists and Christians come off as patronizing assholes.

Just live and let live.

How do we as voters change the system? Like how do we set term limits and change campaign finance system?


Not popular with all conservatives, but i tend to lean in the direction of public financing.

There is a whole other box of worms that comes from that too, but it is better than what we have now

Because of the shot against Kentucky and playing for Duke.

Just watch the 30 for 30 doc


#3303884 [RUMOR] Falcons to lose 2nd round pick

Posted by teeray on 28 March 2015 - 08:54 PM

All comp picks stay where they are and in the round they are now. No other picks are affected besides Atlanta's.

It's like being in line for a roller coaster ride. The attendants have everyone in line to fill all the seats on the coaster, but someone chickens out and leaves the line. The attendants don't go and grab 1 person to take that spot, they just fill up the coaster with who's in the waiting area and leave the seat empty. That's what going to happen here. The Falcons pick is chickening out of the waiting area and not being replaced. The round will go with an empty spot and won't affect the next one. The next coaster (round of picks) will be normal.


Thank you for that explanation, but you were not supposed to take that questions seriously. :P


#3303772 Famous people you hate..

Posted by teeray on 28 March 2015 - 06:13 PM

Ryan gosling has an incredibly punchable face. Also, he's the only Hollywood actor that's better looking than me.


Late bloomer. He was a douche in "Remember the Titans"


#3303770 [RUMOR] Falcons to lose 2nd round pick

Posted by teeray on 28 March 2015 - 06:10 PM

Does that mean our compensatory fifth round pick is no longer a sixth round pick because it is before where a sixth round pick would normally be at? Or is our fifth round pick still a sixth round pick because it is after the fifth round but before the sixth?


#3303240 Operation Jade Helm

Posted by teeray on 28 March 2015 - 12:23 AM

I am somewhat disappointed in the OP's content.

To be honest, I had hoped this thread was about one of Sen. Helm's hot granddaughters named Jade coming out as a flaming liberal.


True story. One of Jesse's daughters owned my house two owners before me. We still get mail for her from time to time, but I can't remember which one.

I think it was Jane Helms.

And I think that when people say "get money out of politics" they are talking about current campaign financing structure, not tax brackets


#3302392 Panthers claim OT Jonathan Martin

Posted by teeray on 27 March 2015 - 03:38 PM

Sooooo we want Gettleman to sign OTs.

 

He gets a former second round pick on the dirt cheap

 

Everyone bitches.  smh

 

 

 

 

What do you guys think there is some stud all-pro OT floating around somewhere?

 

This is a solid move, if it doesn't work out it doesn't hurt us, if it does we have a possible starter or at least depth.

 

You guys are impossible to please  :D

SO, me having to pay a higher % of my income than someone earning 50K is "fair"?

Sure. It is a progressive tax code.

Up until the 80's top tax bracket would have been paying 70% of top portion of their income in taxes.

At times of great economic growth it was 80%

Historically speaking it has been great for top income tax earners since the 80's. They are probably under taxed right now.

Read up on the fair tax.

Is our tax code, the way it's set up now, hugely "unfair" to high income earners?


No. historically speaking this tax code has been awesome for very high income since the 80's
