Our record of meddling in international affairs is almost perfect. Perfect, in that we frick things up almost 100% of the time and leave every situation worse than it was when we found it. This isn’t new. It stretches back to the beginning of the Cold War....
An IRA would likely you give you more/better investment options than your current 401k platform. It will also give you broader options to do things like invest in individual stocks. I have 401ks from my two prior employers rolled into one IRA....

[quote]Do people even get turned down from LSU?[/quote] As an LSU alum, this was my question as well. I thought it was pretty straightforward. I thought you either have the grades or you don’t. It’s not like a true subjective admissions process that you would see at elite schools. Maybe it’s c...
This whole episode is a symptom of how a binary political view has penetrated every facet of our culture. When Mulkey was a “right wing racist” WaPo and the LA Times came after her. Now that she is an “American hating woke lefty” the NY Post is after her. This is about consumer journalism th...

You can’t stop progress. We needed less labor when we shifted from cars to horses. We need less labor when we got computers. We will need less labor when we have AI. It will cause disruption and it will be uncomfortable, but the labor market always adapts....
[quote]Eliminating the cap alone might get it back to solvent.[/quote] And once again high W2 earners get fricked. That would be almost a $9k tax increase on someone making $300k and that person is already paying $90k in federal taxes. The upper middle class always gets squeezed and the trul...

[quote]Her popularity score, or whatever these companies use to determine people’s value, is going to plummet. The end of the line for women’s sports (outside tennis or golf) is college.

re: Car shopping App/Website?

Car Gurus or Autotrader and then contact the dealer directly. You can do it through the site as well. All dealers have sales people specifically for online now. You were really using the app to find the car you want. The negotiations from there on between you and the dealer. That’s one thing the ...
I was in 7th grade when they won the natty and I loved that team. It was one of the only times I hopped on a bandwagon. I made my mom buy me a white Arizona tee from champs sports and played Bball in that thing every day....
