My generation knows nothing about economics. Can't blame them, who would teach them.
So Libertarianism is out of the question. You need to have faith in the market to be a libertarian. And most don't understand or have faith in capitalism....

Walking down a road with cars going 60 mph. Should have clarified that I wasn't making some major indictment against the city. Just that it's not the most walkable or enjoyable mini-city of Atlanta. It could be better, but I think they have plans for that.

Mike Edwards got pinned for the hamburger Pilot robbery when it was always Janzen. The video was clear that Janzen went in the store, came out, went to the car, got out, robbed the car next to them.
Mike Edwards never did anything. He got back on track. Not surprised that Janzen is in trouble...

Anything that requires a mandate will cost us money. That's they only reason why it doesn't exist in the current market.

Most green energy supporters do not support nuclear (fission). And right now, it's the only real base load "green" option (ignoring economics, which the green movement usually does).
I wouldn't be surprised if they turned against fusion too (yes, I know it's theoretically superior to fission i...
| Political Talk|| re: How pissed will the green lobby be when fusion gets going? - NukemVol on 5/20/14 at 10:41 am|
Fusion will be expensive if it ever happens. And we'll probably all be dead. It takes a decade to build a fission reactor, and we've been building those for 50 years. Heck it's going to take 20 years to build the UPF in Oak Ridge. It took 30 to put a giant hole in the ground in Nevada, and then g...

Not really a pot meet kettle situation.

The US spies, but from what is known, nobody is stealing designs and then competing with them on...

I'd be curious what a financial planner or whatever costs. I've looked briefly, saw a bunch of zeros, and stepped away. I see the usefulness, just don't think it's quite worth the squeeze for most middle income people.

This is nitpicky, but why exclude the 401k match? 15% is 15%, if you get matched %5, you are saving 20%...if he thinks 20% is right, why not just say 20%?

I went off for two years, maybe more. Went back on recently. The cable bill does include internet though which accounts for probably 40% of that bill that you can't get rid of.
So really you are talking $700 a year (for me), which I decided I could comfortably afford now. I enjoy sports, and th...

After reading his wiki, looks like he's against capping anything in the short term because it needs more data, and it's economic suicide to approach it as a nation when it's a global problem. That's a reasonable approach, imo. Global warming might be a catastrophic problem, and m...

There were rumors about the boosters making Martin's life difficult, not letting him use the jets or something?
Coaches talk, and like all professions, this could really bite them in the ass.

On one end, I don't want Tennessee tossing out money because of one tourney run. Listening to the masses is what resulted in that stupid Fulmer extension.
On the other end, I have little faith in UT's ability to hire coaches. I don't really blame it on the AD. There's a huge dysfunction among...
