    XFL to Return in 2020

    I thought one of their very first tag lines was something like, you'll always know what a catch is..and they were not going to to follow the 3 years past HS graduation rule. I could be wrong on both, but I think they are trying to target players who can't be in the NFL yet. For instance, Waddle, Jeudy and Tua from Alabama could say, I'm done playing for free and be eligible to play in the XFL instead of having to wait to play in the NFL.
  2. why do i have to wait so long to see this movie??

    Forfeiting DL

    That's good information, thank you! And @BigRedBusterthanks for pointing out it is not anonymous. I appreciate all the information. I really wish states would start requiring driving tests and renewals every two years after the age of 70. It's amazing how quickly my Dad's driving deteriorated in a short amount of time.
  4. Anyone have the talk with their elderly parents about turning over their driver's license? If so, how'd it go? I feel I need to do this with both of my parents, but don't know how to approach the subject, nor do I have any great solutions for them to get around to all their appointments/church/grocery store trips. If anyone has gone through it and has some thoughts, I'd appreciate it. And as a note, they will not be willing to move into some sort of assisted living facility, even though it probably would be the best for them.
  5. So are we now calling a decommitment, 'they got Avery Moss'd'?

    Education

    Do we start paying athletes then? Sorry for the tangent comment. The more I think about it, I'm not sure free is the way to go. I'd like to go back to something like this: https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2014/aug/08/facebook-posts/1978-someone-minimum-wage-could-earn-enough-summer/ You could work the summer only and afford to go to school debt free (minus books/tuition) you could then scale down during the school year to part time to hours and afford books/tuition and graduate debt free. And of course if you go out of state, it would be a jump in tuition. This way, a student still has some skin in the game, as has been brought up, would still have to academically qualify, etc etc. It would still place value on the degree and not burden society as a whole. Using 1978 percentages, that would mean, in today's world the average cost per year for tuition and fees for in-state residents attending a 4-year university would be just shy of $1,850. I would love to figure out a way to get close to that...maybe $5000 yr

    A man you can bait with a Tweet

    At best it's a horrible attempt at being funny. Regardless, it's not a joke that should be made.

    Education

    I don't even think it's a flawed hiring system. At my last company, we hired an Accounts Payable person. We have over 50+ applicants, we hired a guy just out of college with a degree from Iowa State. Starting wage was $16.50, we didn't require that degree, the posting I believe said AA degree preferred (it may have been required, but I don't think it was). He's 24, college educated, full time job, and lives in his parents basement because that's all he can afford. I think the biggest issue is the price of that education in comparison to the salary of your career. Look at elementary school teachers, how much student loan debt do they acquire to get their degree, just to get teaching gigs that start in the low 30s? The guy at my old job in AP, teachers, so many other career fields need that education to even get their foot in the door, and then they don't make enough to afford to live. The price of education has ballooned and is so far out of whack with industry salaries, that short of offering free education, like Bernie is proposing, with a caveat (ie minimum gpa) I don't know if you can fix the problem. Higher education is creating a massive debt burden on society

    DOJ Initial Russia Hearings

    https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/11/27/1815497/-Manafort-plea-deal-may-have-started-as-a-set-up-for-Robert-Mueller-and-ended-as-a-trap-for-Trump If Manafort and Trump were coordinating answers (like two high-school students cheating on a test and both giving the exact same wrong answers), Mueller now has circumstantial evidence of them conspiring to obstruct justice -- at a minimum. Also probably evidence of criminal conspiracy. And if Trump dangled a pardon to Manafort in exchange for not cooperating, he can try to pardon him but you can't pardon someone in an effort to cover your own crimes. Constitutional crisis time.

    The Walking Dead

    Yes, blend in with the walkers to be protected by them and not attacked by them, as long as they don't make too much noise.

    Dems Rebuild

    I would be on-board with that, one chance, minimum GPA requirement, and I would add something like must complete the undergrad in 6 years. I would add more parameters like must be an in-state school. Otherwise pay a tbd out of state fee. Grad school and beyond would require some fee as well for me.

    Dems Rebuild

    @BigRedBuster Curious as to why you are so adamantly opposed to free college? If the Dem/Bernie plan was to make public university/college more affordable instead of free, would you more open to that?

    Dems Rebuild

    Bernie Sanders introduces bold ten point plan for Democrats. Here are the ten points: 1. Increasing the minimum wage to $15 an hour and indexing it to median wage growth thereafter. 2. A path toward Medicare-for-all. 3. Bold action to combat climate change. 4. Fixing our broken criminal-justice system. 5. Comprehensive immigration reform. 6. Progressive tax reform. 7.A $1 trillion infrastructure plan. 8. Lowering the price of prescription drugs. 9. Making public colleges and universities tuition-free and substantially reducing student debt. 10. Expanding Social Security. I love most of these ideas (not really on board with the mandatory minimum wage, and feel that prescription drugs is only a part of fixing health care and should really be tied into #2), and would support them, if done correctly, 100%. Here is an article expanding on his plan. https://www.truthdig.com/articles/bernie-sanders-lays-out-bold-10-point-plan-for-democrats/
