re: Immigrants want it more and work harder - Ralph_Wiggum on 3/2/21 at 7:23 pm
[quote]So you’re a hypocrite with no convictions that is willing to sacrifice their principles to benefit themselves. You’re definitely a socialist.

[quote]I thought you were a socialist. Why are you exploiting their labor just because you can "get more" out of them? Have you grown up and become a capitalist? [/quote] I am a socialist, but as I said when my arse is on the line I gotta consider that. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

Immigrants want it more and work harder - Ralph_Wiggum on 3/2/21 at 6:49 pm
I got to be honest. I hire and supervise people. I have to say that immigrants when they apply for jobs tend to have better credentials and are more willing to work harder and longer. I do know that in my field immigrants to the US are from the best schools in their home countries but they do really...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (19)
re: Will attendance at sporting events ever be the same? - Ralph_Wiggum on 3/2/21 at 9:37 am
After I get my vaccine I plan on making it a point to attend more games in person. I live within 20 miles of all four major league sports, NCAA, and MLS so this as gotten me to think I should try to attend more games and see about getting cheap seats on the secondary market. I used to get free t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Steelers’ Mike Tomlin on Black head coaches: NFL hasn’t ‘been able to move the needle’ - Ralph_Wiggum on 3/2/21 at 9:33 am
The Lions hired a black GM and they should get props for that. But if the NFL is 70% black there is no shortage of former players who have the ability to be a good head coach. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Desi Vega apologizes to Black couple who had tip auto added to bill at restaurant - Ralph_Wiggum on 3/1/21 at 8:26 am
Profiling about tips is also generational. My grandparents and aunts and uncles who lived through the depression were cheap tippers. I don't think they ever tipped over 10 percent and maybe approached 15 percent only if they didn't have enough change to make 10 percent and they always paid cash. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Boston suspends advanced classes for 4-6 graders citing racial inequities - Ralph_Wiggum on 2/28/21 at 1:55 pm
How are kids chosen for the advanced classes? Is it based on standardized testing, teacher recommendations, or grades on classroom assignments and tests? What are the standards to be put in an advanced course? I don't doubt that the advanced classes are dominated by whites and Asians, but how do ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Rank the networks’ sports broadcasts - Ralph_Wiggum on 2/27/21 at 5:18 pm
I agree that NBC and CBS offer the best picture quality and best production. Fox has the worst pictures and sound. CBS has the best graphics and best picture quality. It seems to me that NBC and CBS have more cameras and camera angles. Of course the fact that ESPN covers the Sunbelt means that they ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Kevin Mather is resigning after giving a wild speech to a Rotary Club - Ralph_Wiggum on 2/23/21 at 7:29 pm
He's an idiot. Speeches to the rotary club are about selling tickets and tv viewership. My guess is that he had too much to drink and there were previous concerns about his drinking and this made it easier to get rid of him. Be honest how many World Series has he won? Not a hard decision to tell...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
