  1. No.... he's the worst, too.
  2. “And what these winners wanted was for the world to be changed in ways that had their buy-in—think charter schools over more equal public school funding, or poverty-reducing tech companies over antitrust regulation of tech companies. The entrepreneurs were willing to participate in making the world better if you pursued that goal in a way that exonerated and celebrated and depended on them.” ― Anand Giridharadas, Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World
  3. Anand Giridharadas, Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World makes a lot of great points in his book regarding philanthropy and society's misguided appreciation for it. Unfair to sum it up in one quote, but here goes: “More often, though, these elites start initiatives of their own, taking on social change as though it were just another stock in their portfolio or corporation to restructure. Because they are in charge of these attempts at social change, the attempts naturally reflect their biases.”
  4. No to voluntarily donating, because the rich don't need anymore tax breaks. Rutger Bregman nailed it: “This is not rocket science,” he said. “We can talk for a very long time about all these stupid philanthropy schemes, we can invite Bono once more, but, come on, we got to be talking about taxes. That’s it. Taxes, taxes, taxes — all the rest is bulls---, in my opinion.”
  5. The 1950's are still referred to as America's "Golden Years". Top Federal tax rates ranged from mid-80's to 90% for the entire decade.
  6. I guess we're assuming Charles Nelson is going to be a strictly ST guy?
  7. If Walters waited until yesterday to sign Bighill and no one else, I'm pretty sure most people would still be pleased. Jefferson is some pretty good gravy on top of that.
  8. Thanks. I've muttered his name more than a few times over the last couple years.
  9. Just have to go for the punt single early against the Riders. Shouldn't be too hard to beat them 1-0 every time.
  10. The way it's going, Edmonton is going to sign BLM too.
  11. Got me too. Want it to be true.
  12. McCrockiner has admitted it's fake.
