Hall Of Famer

Hall Of Famer (5/5)

  1. Maybe just that they don’t plan to have Philips handling punts anymore when he does return from IR. It was certainly a surprise when Reese made the roster. Not like they cut Lawrence Taylor to make room for Reese, but clearly they figure Campbell has more to offer than Reese at this point after seeing Reese in action.
  2. https://fortune.com/2023/09/22/russia-gasoline-diesel-export-ban-vladimir-putin-ukraine-war/ Now 575 days into his war in Ukraine, Vladimir Putin has halted virtually all exports of gasoline and diesel out of the country to lessen the pain for average Russians and protect the nation’s food supply. Russia’s leader has tried to keep the daily lives of Russians insulated from the worst impacts of his expansionary campaign in order to minimize risks to political stability. But with all resources at their disposal directed at maintaining the war effort, wholesale prices for the two fuels have reached record levels in recent months, according to state news agency TASS. Since it has no choice but to fuel its military machine operating across the border in Ukraine—a necessity if it hopes to repel Kyiv’s ongoing counteroffensive—Moscow will instead divert the supply that would have gone abroad to prevent shortages back home.
  3. In addition to supporting the union and workers in general, which he should absolutely do, hopefully they can find a way to have him actively walking among the picketers as a message to counter complaints about his age. I don’t know how long he will be out there though. If he’s only going to be there for 15 minutes then it’s no use. But if he is out there for a couple of hours they can show he isn’t some feeble old man.
  4. Counterpoint: what if you can get a guard who can shutdown DTs like Simmons? If you can protect your QB from interior pressure, that’s pretty valuable.
  5. Let he who doesn’t have half a million dollars in cash squirreled away around his house cast the first stone! I mean, we all know what it’s like, right? Everyone ends up with loose change in the sofa cushions and envelopes full of stacks of cash in our sock drawer and suit pockets. If I had a nickel for every time I had misplaced one of my envelopes full of cash I’d have $480k…
  6. If Skoronski ends up being an elite guard, no one is going to think badly of the pick just because they drafted a guard. That said, I still think there’s a good chance they move him to LT.
  7. He was indicted before and won in court. Not sure of the evidence in that case, but clearly he has a bad record. Hopefully they have enough evidence to convict him this time. People want to get the old members out of Congress but I say start with the corrupt assholes. Both parties.
  8. https://www.businessinsider.com/bill-for-halting-legislator-pay-mccarthy-shutdown-act-2023-9?utm_source=reddit.com While taking a shot at House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, Democratic Rep. Angie Craig just introduced a new bill to temporarily strip away the paychecks of members of Congress during a government shutdown. On Wednesday afternoon, Craig announced that she had formally introduced the "My Constituents Cannot Afford Rebellious Tantrums, Handle Your Shutdown Act," also known as the "MCCARTHY Shutdown Act," with the expressed desire to halt members' pay for as long as the government remains shut down. In a press release, Craig said she wanted to introduce the bill was "because it's ridiculous that we still get paid while folks like TSA workers are asked to work without a paycheck."
  9. They also love to promote themselves being “pro-life” yet they have no interest in helping Ukraine defend themselves as the Russians slaughter civilians and generally commit acts of genocide.
  10. https://www.cnn.com/2023/09/20/politics/cnn-poll-new-hampshire/index.html Former President Donald Trumpholds a sizable lead in the race for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination in New Hampshire, but a close contest for second place has emerged among four candidates seeking to gain traction as an alternative to the front-runner, according to a new CNN/University of New Hampshire poll. Overall, Trump is the first choice of 39% of likely GOP primary voters in the first-in-the-nation primary state. That lags a bit behind his performance nationally, where Republican primary polling routinely finds Trump with majority support. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who stood out as Trump’s chief rival in the last UNH survey on the New Hampshire race in July, has dropped 13 points since then to 10% support. He’s now running about even against three rising candidates: tech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy (13%), former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (12%) and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (11%). South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott is at 6% support in the poll and former Vice President Mike Pence holds 2%. No other candidate tops 1%. DeSantis’ decline stems from a sharp drop-off among moderates, from 26% backing him in July to 6% now. He fell a smaller 8 points among conservatives.
