Possible scenario: Trump backs Gary Johnson - TheHiddenFlask
If Trump gets hosed by the republicans, I think the most damaging thing he could do to the GOP would be to back Gary Johnson. Running third party costs the republicans 1 presidential election, backing a libertarian and getting a real push for a three party system would be earth shattering for both e...

Why should any young successful person support fed taxes? - TheHiddenFlask
~33% goes to social security and Medicare - There is virtually no chance we ever get to partake in these programs. ~25% goes to welfare programs - welfare, food stamps, housing subsidies, Medicaid, unemployment, etc. I will never get to partake in these other than unemployment, and that is very un...

Trump - Racism and Sexism - TheHiddenFlask
Honestly, I haven't heard the guy say anything that was actually racist or remarkably sexist. He's had a few sound it's that people have framed into incestuous love for his daughter and hate for minorities, but that's all window dressing. With that said, I'm open to hearing out his critics on th...

Pay to die? A hypothetical - TheHiddenFlask
I've been against the death penalty for fiscal and geopolitical (extradition) reasons for a long time and in the past few years have added general mistrust of government to that list. But this isn't about the latter two, this is about the first. It costs ~$60,000 a year to keep someone in jail a...

Why you are voting for Trump - TheHiddenFlask
I thought his announcement was a joke and his politics don't really align with mine perfectly, but: 1) Rand Paul dropped out 2) I don't want to vote for an evangelical 3) I don't want to vote for an establishment candidate 4) The dem candidates are so far left it isn't even funny. 5) Finall...

Since I'm still seeing people talk about .78/1.00: - TheHiddenFlask
I will reiterate this again: Not only do I not believe it. Not only is it not true. Not only is it easily dispelled by the slightest statistical scrutiny. Not only do the politicians who talk about it not believe it. YOU DO NOT ACTUALLY BELIEVE IT! In fact, no one on this earth actu...

Can Scott be everything that we dreamed about Shepard? - TheHiddenFlask
Film isn't all that different. Incredible athlete that is allusive and can extend plays until coverage breaks down. I did see a little better zip on some of his short passes than Shepard had, so hopefully he can be the man. I also think that the situation that he is walking into (virtually zero ...

OUTR: A time to buy? - TheHiddenFlask
Haven't followed this one in a long while and it has been crushed. I don't know how much I like the long term relevance of the business model, but as of right now, they are the only way to get Blu Ray quality output, so they have a defensible position for a while. Redbox is also still popular with t...

High earnings growth careers and saving - TheHiddenFlask
All of the saving threads here have me wondering about what advice you would give to someone who expects to double their income every 8-10 years for the rest of their career. Does this change the outlook on saving earlier? Obviously, going Roth early on is much more advantageous in this scena...

I need Birthday gift advice - TheHiddenFlask
What would you get for a girl that is not your girlfriend, but you have been passively dating for the past few months? It was made clear to me that I should remember her birthday, so I want to send over something. Are flowers too much? Jewelry is my usual go to, but I feel like that's way too much. ...

Trump support is mainly a backlash from Obama's insults - TheHiddenFlask
People don't even care about his policies any more, they just want someone to counteract the absurd stranglehold that has been put on anyone that is successful and/or not some fringe minority group. They want someone who will tell someone they are being stupid when the person is being stupid. Cu...

Understanding offensiveness vs understanding economics - TheHiddenFlask
So, yesterday I was trying to explain what a micro aggression was and I eventually had to just give several examples where something that seems just fine on the surface can be turned into racist/sexist/____phobic if given several mental leaps. This morning, I'm reading the same idiots who call e...
