  1. Almost half of US families can't afford basics like rent and food

    Willing to bet that number doesn't include those "out of the work force."
  2. Almost half of US families can't afford basics like rent and food

    I know what inflation is and I know what capitalism is. I also know basic economics. That last sentence has nothing to do with ANYTHING. Shows how much you know about economics. I also know what wages are and what happens during a recession. I'm also an employer. You've once again managed to say nothing.

    Umm. That's actually a statement most people can simply understand. I don't know the age of this board however. Generic stats like you just spouted of have no basis in fact. Without context they're just generic statements you're using to try and prove a point. In this case it seems, that the economy is "fine." Well let me tell ya Mr. @Rolltide. Wages haven't been "steadily" climbing for the middle class and lower classes over that time frame. Profits may have gone to the highest earners, but earners in the middle haven't seen increases in wages. To make matters worse, inflation has been steady. What happens when you have steadily rising inflation and stagnant or flat wages @Rolltide?
  4. Titans Select S Dane Cruikshank #152 Overall (Trade Up)

    He was a good pickup hopefully for our needs on defense. Gives us possible depth behind Logan Ryan and Cyprien. And maybe he can play behind Jayon Brown if Brown is injured. Might be a good pickup for a Super Bowl run type of year. Have to assume that's the case with the removal of Mularkey. I like all of our draft picks honestly. Even Falk if he can come in and win some games for us as a backup. Would give him time to get his shot somewhere and make some cash as a backup. If we hit on Evans, Landry, Cruikshank and Falk people will be saying we had a great draft. An A+ draft despite the numbers. We didn't have too many holes heading into the offseason after having a lot of high picks the last few years. If Evans outplays Williamson we instantly have a better run defense and pass defense. I think his appeal over Williamson is his coverage potential. If we hit on Landry then we have another Orakpo type player to work into the rotation and get after the QB. I think he could be better against the run than expected and could develop into a great OLB. Defense looks stacked. Weakest spot is SS but with more CB's maybe Cyp is used more in the box where he's effective. Or taking out TE's. Byard, Butler, Adoree, Ryan is a solid DB group. Woodyard was solid last year. D-Line was solid. Weak spot was in the slot and we attacked that with this pick, and the Butler pickup (moving Ryan inside) imo. Also with the Evans pick potentially. A potentially solid defense. Plus guys who've made Watson's life miserable in the past. On offense we have Mariota with Henry finally getting the start and Lewis behind him and for scheme fits. Very solid for a lot of different looks. One of the best TE's in the game with another receiving threat developing in Smith. A top O-Line. WR group while not deep, has some talent. We're set on offense besides WR depth as well. I know we had the hype last year but this year's team looks even more solid.

    I've known all of the above. Also people homeless. It's pretty sad to see people working struggling to pay their bills. Especially when they're working full time and doing side jobs. Things have just gotten too expensive. Fast food isn't "fast" anymore when it comes to eating out. You'll pay later. Rent and housing. Insurances. Necessities in a lot of fields these days. That's a lot not even including if you have a kid or kids. They had less bills and higher wages in the past. That's strange to say in and of itself. It used to seem like we would keep heading in one direction.
  6. Democrat Party is pathetic

    I think they let them out to disrupt things mostly, honestly. If there's too much progress they (DNC) won't be needed. Can kill the credibility of an issue quick if done in a manner a la Black Lives Matter. There were so many scandals involving leadership they decided to go "leaderless." That wasn't just involving those outside the org, that's involving the organization itself. Michael Brown Jr's father called them "thieves in the night." http://dailycaller.com/2016/11/17/michael-browns-father-blm-tried-to-profit-off-my-sons-death/ If you go to their website you'll see they're fringe to a T. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But they tried to mask a fringe movement as a broader movement that they didn't have any control or "ledership" over. A group that doesn't even have the mention of men on its website. Biggest scam of our generation.

    Who are the "crunchie" if you don't mind me asking?
  8. Almost half of US families can't afford basics like rent and food

    If you look at some of the price comparisons between now, and the 70's, it'll blow your mind. Adjusted for inflation everything is more expensive and our wages have been stagnant for nearly a decade now. I graduated in '08. Right into the crash. Our professors were already telling us it was gonna happen a year before it happened. They were ahead of the "experts." I remember being glad I graduated right before it, but noticing the change in the economy where people started to tighten up. I can't imagine what it'd be like graduating in today's market. I would've taken a whole different approach. College debt (tuition started going through the roof). Home prices. Gas prices. Added necessary expenses (internet, tech). Low wages. Makes perfect sense. Our quality of living is going down.
  9. Democrat Party is pathetic

    I guess I fall into the same category but I can't support the Republicans because they're so stupid on social issues (yea, I really think that). If they were Libertarian led, I could deal with them. But they're not. My problem with the Democrats is they sabotage some of the best within. Some of the best ideas, leadership, etc. I could support them if they were about what they said they were about (minorities, the poor, liberal policies), but they're not. And I've had personal experience dealing with them. They'll say one thing and do another behind closed doors. They're really listening to their donors and handlers, not the American people who make up their base. My problem with supporting either of the current 2 parties is that we're not removing the corruption from govt. We're hoping it goes away or doesn't rear its head again. I don't trust the Democrats. Not with their current leadership. I don't support the Republicans simply because we disagree on a lot of issues. My problem with falling back into complacency with the Democrats is that our progress will be hindered and we might not be able to fix all of our problems before its too late this time. I really feel that way. Especially economically and socially. I think our generation is already starting to tune out and give up as sad as it is to say.

    What's your degree in? And what are YOU doing to address this issue? I gave up a stockbroker trainee job to fight the good fight. AND led the latest social justice fight that was addressing this very issue. You're an internet talker.
