RIP Wallrock, Foron since 2008

Forum member Wallrock passed away last weekend from a fungal pneumonia. He was only 36. There is a celebration of life today starting at 4PM at Charlie's on Main in Oregon. I first met Bruce at our TDPF fantasy football season end party in 2008. Turns out the girl I had recently started seeing, and ...

He got really good at hiding the dirty money and just got carried away.

Re: More children living in poverty now than during recession

Wealth can move, it just hasn't been. Apparently we have yet to love the wealthy enough, Just a few more Trillion ought to start the trickle. What CAN create jobs is demand. Millions of people with a small amount of expendable income can create a hell of a lot of demand. 100 Billionaires with more b...

Re: More children living in poverty now than during recession

In fairness, I see where the "20%" figure is coming from: 18 * 1.2 = 21.6 This is an excellent of example of needing to be careful when using percentages instead of absolute values. In some sense, saying a 20% increase is true. In another, saying 3.6% is true. You just need to carefully d...

Re: More children living in poverty now than during recession

20% INCREASE in poverty? 22 - 18 = 4 That was your math lesson for the day. 18 + 20% = 21.6 But I'll agree the GOP platform does nothing but bring more poverty. I'll add that their obstruction, legislation at the state level and general batshit-craziness has a lot more to do with this increase than...

Re: WI Supreme court rulings

The state elections board is comprised of former Wisconsin judges. Yet Walker says he wants to replace them with ""something completely new that is truly accountable to the people of the state of Wisconsin." Sure you do. "The People" = Charles and David as far as Walker is ...

Re: WI Supreme court rulings

Money well spent. The Federal investigation might not be good for his Presidential ambitions. And could ONE of these articles please correct the information about the charges stemming from John Doe? It adds important context when instead of "No charges have been filed" is supplemented with...

Yep. It's probably smaller than some of the older versions. I have a new Surface Pro 3 coming for my new job, and I use a Lumia Windows Phone. But somehow I'm still a Mac guy. Micro$oft has been pretty big on promises, but doesn't always deliver. How many years in? and Windows 8 (and Windows Phone 8...
