  1. 2018 Washington Nationals - Weak Cheese

    This season is over and if you keep watching as if it isn't you will get hurt, bad. That's the way it is. But for people implying the window is now closed...you know who else's window was closed...

  3. 2018 Washington Nationals - Weak Cheese

    If not for the events of June 7, 2018, this lost season would be a much tougher pill to swallow. Still, the way they lose is the worst. I stopped watching weeks ago and am better for it. Not worth it at this point.

    I got off the Nationals narcotic weeks ago, you all should too.

    Ovechkin is ready to bring another parade to DC!
  6. Random "Thot" Thread (Stadium Edition)

    Someone's going to have to step up in the backfield. Perine's fumbling doesn't concern me, it's his lack of talent.
  7. Post-Curse D.C. Sports Thread

    The Guice injury sucks but let's be real, half the league's top players were injured/season-ended at some point last year, it happens. I feel really sad for him though, he was truly ingratiating himself with the fanbase. Seeing him at Capital One to watch the Cup win was awesome! Oh well, guess I'll cheer myself up by watching the Caps win the championship for the 20th time...because you know...we can do that now.
  8. NY Mag: 10 Years After the Financial Collapse

    Agreed. A big difference too is in many ways we have still not recovered from 2007-2009 whereas the turnaround after the Great Depression was actually pretty incredible considering the circumstances, and of course WWII made everyone forget about it. The actual economic collapse itself though, 2008 was not in the same category - the U.S. had up to 25% unemployment in the early 1930s and in other countries it was over 30%. That is unheard of. The U.S. GDP dropped 28% in three years. Then there's the fact that living in the 1930s even as a rich person sucked because you know, it was the 1930s.

    Given Zoony's comments, I'm waiting for some 89 year old to come in here and talk about how the world's total GDP fell less than 1% during the 2008 recession whereas the Great Depression saw a 15% drop in worldwide GDP so it wasn't that bad.

    True but those loans should never have been given out and then doubled down on and ultimately, the greed from knowing you could profit off the backs of uninformed common folk was the final straw. Granted, you would think grown ass adults would figure out what they can actually afford so....
  11. NY Mag: 10 Years After the Financial Collapse

    If Boomers didn't want to have to go through it, they shouldn't have caused the crisis to begin with (half joking). Granted it was the selfish, lackadaisical decisions of a handful of people not millions by any stretch, but in general, if you were graduating college in 2008-2009 with tens to hundreds of thousands in debt, and minimal job prospects, it absolutely affected you. It's not a pissing contest. Fact is, we all had to pay for the actions of a minute few who got off without any penalty.

    Assuming you don't have the time/skills for DIY investing, if you just want to save for retirement, find a robo-advisor or use Vanguard (you have to know what funds you want in that case) and just set up an account and let them do the work for you.
  13. The MAGAs who get outraged at anthem protests as if it makes them "better Americans" are the same people who wear U.S. flag shirts and bandanas, leave the U.S. flag waving behind their pickup trucks, use it on posters at their Trump rallies etc. etc. ALL of this is against U.S. flag code and considered highly disrespectful to Old Glory.
  14. That is not the mindset. The mindset is a lot of white people in this country actually believe that just because we passed the Civil Rights Act in 1964 and because slavery ended in the 19th century, that everyone in America is equal and minority populations are just playing the victim. Sorry people are tired of allowing their ignorance to go unchecked. And if you're wondering what "a lot" means in this case, I think after November 2016 it's clear that it's a lot more people than some thought.
  15. LeBron James to Open I Promise School on Monday (SI)

    You can never complain about LeBron off the court. Never in trouble whatsoever and helps so many people. When morons call him and other athletes out for speaking out/kneeling etc. just send them stuff like this and say what do you do to actually help people in America?
