#2304569 7/30 camp thread

I'm not worried about Cam. Key players on offensive line taking a break, Smitty out, 5 or so practices in, day before an off day, etc.

All the essential elements for an off day. Plus there were conflicting reports out there which leads me to believe he had a decent throwing day but made some bad decisions.

He has had a good camp up until today so I'm not overly concerned about one bad practice.


#2303627 $15 dollars a hour?

Posted by teeray on 29 July 2013 - 03:00 PM

Why not 20? Think of all those companies whose workers make say 17 an hour? Think they will just chill if avg McD's salary goes to 15?

If you can assure me no cost of goods will go up sure. Be curious to see how fast mass transit rases costs.

Only time will tell I guess.

 

That is why, I have said you can offset some of the costs for increased wages with tax decreases or incentives for the wealthy and corporations to try and mitigate any negative employment impact or increase in cost of goods.  Because you would be getting higher tax receipts form the increased wages it wouldn't be all that costly to the budget to do so.

 

But for certain even if you did that there would likely be increase in cost of goods.  However, the market will dictate how much you can get away with rising the price of goods.

 

For instance, using Madhatter's example from earlier, if we raised wages and therefore, McDonald's decided in order to protect profits they wanted to double the cost of hamburger meal, well the general public may not want to pay $15 for a crappy burger and no longer eat there.  Demand would go down, and they would have to lower their prices to maintain market share or to stay in business.

 

So I think you would see an increase in cost of goods, but I don't think it would be as dramatic as some of you have suggested.

If you pay lower wage employees more it will force other employers to pay you market value for your skills. Raising low skill wages will increase wages of skilled workers.


#2303490 $15 dollars a hour?

Sure.  Significant wage increases across the board are 30 years overdue.

 

Wages for the top percent have quadrupled since 1979, yet wages for everyone else have stayed about the same.

 

Did you guys know that purchasing power for minimum wage in the 50's would be the equivalent of about 11.00/hr today?  Not surprisingly the 50's was one of our greatest economic growth periods.

 

15 might be a little high for fast food chains, but my guess is it is a negotiating starting point.




#2303463 Most embarrassing interview Fox News has ever done?

Posted by teeray on 29 July 2013 - 01:00 PM

Hilarious to see a democrat talking about lack of intellectual ability in the Republican party.

 

The Democrat base is made up of people who barely have a functioning IQ. 

 

 

I will only speak for myself since I am the one who originally said it, but I am unaffiliated with a party and was most recently a Republican.  But it is a perfect example of Republicans easy dismissal of everything that is critical of them as liberal and/or from a Democrat.

 

Plus it is funny, since most Republicans would tell you that the Democratic base is made up of scientists,mathematicians, most of the media, and the vast majority of college professors and others involved in academia.

 

But to further illustrate my point, is there an academic study or non-partisan report that backs up your assertion that the Democratic base barely has a functioning IQ?  Or is another example of simply saying something that you want to be true to make yourself feel better about your own party's deficiencies in the realm of intellectualism?




#2303305 Most embarrassing interview Fox News has ever done?

Posted by teeray on 29 July 2013 - 10:15 AM

Which is false. And the same could be said about the other side met with the exact same answer as I'm saying

 

Is it false?

 

This is a party that refuses to believe in global warming which is scientific consensus.

 

Republican legislatures have been passing bills because they actually think United Nations Agenda 21 is a global conspiracy to wipe out freedoms of all US citizens.

 

They believe that the media is part of a vast left wing conspiracy that participates in liberal activism.

 

They regularly and famously attack academia and college professors for spreading liberalism

 

Despite the CBO and CRS (both completely non-partisan) repeatedly saying that tax cuts for the wealthy does not cause economic growth only deepens divide between wealthy and middle class, or that Obamacare actually reduces the deficit, or that raising taxes on the wealthy will have minimal negative impact on the economy, they refuse to believe it and continue on their tax platform and hold a vote every other week on Obamacare because it is a "deficit buster".

 

They believe gay people destroy the fabric of society

 

Fox News thought all the polls that showed Romney losing in 2012 were all liberally biased and that Nate Silver was falsifying his math to make it liberally biased for Obama

To me it encapsulates conservatives anti-intellectualism that now permeates through the entire party.

When they can't deal with facts or even a scholarly opinion they have to try to delegitamize the source. Whether it be media, fact checkers, scholars, academic studies, etc.

That was a blatant attempt to question the intentions and integrity of that scholar and the host continued to try and bait him. Instead he calmly and politely destroyed and exposed her.

If this drill were real, CJ had Cam dead to rights, beating Bell like a drum.


If there is one thing I have learned the last two years it is that Cam is never dead to rights :P

#2301431 North Carolina is the poster child for all that is wrong with modern American...

Posted by teeray on 27 July 2013 - 12:09 PM

they are buffoons. do you not think the people they are supposedly targeting isn't going to respond in kind and just swarm the polls to show their response?

do you not have faith in the people the Reps are going after?


If they do, cutting early voting, cutting Sunday voting, and creating long lines in densly populated voting precincts, and taking away provisional ballots are designed to deter people from doing so.

Don't forget redstricting as well. Even if the do it will have less effect on the House.

Even if Democrats receive more overall votes it will be more difficult to change the house.

There is a reason this has become the Republicans top priority around the country.

Bury you head in the sand and slurp the Republicans teat if that is what it takes to swallow this bill. But they have made it clear what this is designed to do, and have championed its results in other states.

Making it more difficult to vote under the guise of fixing a problem that does not exist is fundamentally un- American and is frivolous spending personified.

#2301118 Dameshek's epic twitter meltdown (hilarious)

Posted by teeray on 27 July 2013 - 12:10 AM

and you didn't follow that up with the obvious "speaking of "for fans"...  Panther fans are still waiting to be crowned..  if you didn't notice."

 

Oh I did I bombarded him with tweets

 

    1. @ElijahHorton @Dameshek he said it was for fans who care abotu their uniforms. Panthers' fans participate, he ignores it

       
  1. @Dameshek @TomDunphy It seems you took it down and swept it under the rug, not because of the fans but because you not believing the outcome

  2. @Dameshek @TomDunphy If it was truly for the fans why did you seem to abandon it after the final? The fans participated

  3. @Dameshek @TomDunphy I think the fans that voted would appreciate it for their hard work and participation in your contest.
