      Good afternoon Redskins fans!  I have once again been invited to sit in the relative comfort of the press box and shout my thoughts into the void via this blog.  As you watch the game today and see the rain  pour relentlessly from the heavens, know that I am safe and dry.  Know also that @Spaceman Spiff is out there somewhere, cold and unappreciated, rolling around in the muck trying to capture that perfect picture.  Maybe say a little prayer for his health (or laugh, whatever, I’m not judging you).  Also, be sure not to miss the pictures he posts on this site after each game.     
       
      Before we get into today's Redskins game, I want give some thanks for more positive occurrences in DC sports.  Congrats to the Washington Mystics for winning their first championship.  Congrats go out to the Washington Nationals as well for reaching the world series.  These two teams (along with the Caps) are working hard to change the sports related mood around this town, and we're all happier for it. 
       
      Lets move now into less cheerful topics, namely your Washington Redskins!  Yow know things are going bad, and I mean really dang bad, when your team has gone through three quarterbacks and two coaches and your not even half way through the season.  Today's fresh hell comes in the form of a specter of the our recent past coming to smirk at our misfortune.  Im talking of course of Kyle.  Kyle's spent the week assuring everyone that he isn’t holding a grudge, while very obviously holding a grudge.  “Everything else.”  You know what I’m talking about. 
       
      If all he brought to town were his hurt feelings we wouldn’t have a problem.  Sadly, he’s arrived with an undefeated football team that the NFL says we have to play this week.  This feels entirely unfair. 
       
      My generic key to the game:  Run the ball and stop the run.  The team (spoiler alert: 49ers) that does this today will win.   
       
      Redskins Inactives  
      QB Colt McCoy  
      S Deshazor Everett  
      CB Josh Norman  
      RB Chris THompson  
      LB Josh Harvey-Clemons 
      G Wes Martin  
      TE Vernon Davis  
       
      49ers inactives  
      QB CJ Beathard 
      WR Deebo Samuel  
      CB Ahkello Witherspoon  
      FB Kyle Juszczyk 
      T Mike McGLinchey 
      T Joe Staley 
      DL DJ Jones 
       
      1st Quarter Update
      Redskins 0 – 0 49ers
       
      Callahan wasn’t playing around when he said he wanted to run the ball.  That first drive was all runs, and looked great... right up until they tried to pass the ball.  Hopkins missed the relatively short fied goal, because of course he did.     

      Maybe Quinn isn’t a good choice to be returning punts?  Consider it.    
       
      That second Redskins drive looked more like what we’ve come to expect from this offense.  Run for negative yards, pass dropped, and an unsuccessful screen pass.  A quintessential Redskins three and out. 

      Passing yards this quarter:  Redskins 3. 49ers 9.  Are you not entertained?! 
       
      Half Time Update
      Redskins 0 – 0 49ers 
       
      How happy are you to spend your Sunday afternoon watching this game?  Consider that some people paid money, to sit in a poncho, in the rain, to watch this game. 
       
      It’s now time for those half time adjustments that our beloved skins do so well.  It’s unlikely the second half mirrors the first. 
       
      3rd Quarter Update 
      Redskins 0 – 3 49ers  
       
      Good news, this game will not end in a 0-0 tie.  Those half time adjustments have kicked in as expected and the 49ers have found a way onto the scoreboard in this messy throwback game.  The Redskins have decided to spend the second half collecting holding penalties and sadness.  Mercifully, only one quarter remains. 
       
      End of Game Update 
      Redskins 0 – 9 49ers 
       
      Callahan hasn’t spent much time as the head coach of the Washington Redskins, but he’s already proven that his team can waste 2nd half timeouts like a veteran.  It makes little sense to adopt a strategy that shortens the game when your team is losing, and it makes even less sense when your team is short on time outs.  I’m not really sure what the thinking as late in this game.    
       
      Next week Kirk Cousins!

Payroll taxes?  

 

Wont stop a recession...but it will defund Social Security and Medicare.

 

I'm certainly nor sure that it won't affect a recession.  Deficit spending is one (far as I'm aware, the only) tool for reducing the effects of one.  

 

I could certainly see arguments over whether it would 

 

1)  Prevent a recession.

2)  Reduce the effects.

3)  Delay it (till the Dems take over.  (Then they can claim that the Dems caused it.)  (Or simply delay it till after the election, so they can retain more power for a while).  

4)  Inflate the bubble more, making the explosion correspondingly worse.  

 

I'd also say that "defund SS/Medicare" isn't exactly clear.  

 

When Obama cut the SS tax by 2%, to fight the recession he inherrited, the bill also stated that the government would pay an amount from General Revenue, to offset the amount of revenue lost by the tax cut.  So at least on paper, cutting the SS taxes increased the genera; revenue deficit, and did not reduce SS funding at all.  

 

Odds of a Republican congress doing the same thing again?  IMO, about the same as the odds of a Republican Senate passing a tax cut where 100% of the cut goes to the bottom 99% of taxpayers.

Yeah, more tax cuts for the wealthy.

 

This will save the economy.  

 

And look.  While I was typing that post, somebody confirmed my prediction.

If Trump wins in 2020, I am not sure what Dem is going to want the job in 2024.  The thankless job Obama did rebounding the Bush recession, I can only imagine how bad things will look as Trump exits.

Trump pushing conspiracy theories hard right now. Of course it is all unfounded nonsense, but I assume he is prepping his base for if he loses in 2020. I still think he will leave, but he will try and plant the seeds of doubt anyway so he can pretend the he didn't actually lose and live to his dying days actually believing it.

Somehow I don't think the protests in Hong Kong are because the Chinese government is tricking them into protesting. 

Unless they are creating a scenario where they can step into Hong Kong in a more direct manner.

You are much more optimistic than I am.

I think he'll cry foul, won't leave, and try like hell to touch off violence.

 

that is if somehow the election isn't already in the bag due to their opening the doors for foreign intrusion and poorly secured voting, of which i also have no faith at all won't happen.

 

i don't think Russia will let her puppet go so easily as in a democratic election.

Calling all Trump supporters....ya'll can kiss my ass.

Thanks a lot, now we're back to cold war style bull****, and Trump is just the dude to ramp up brinksmanship in order to thrust his mushroom dick in the world's face.

Now we just need a remake of "The Day After" so our kids can get some training on what to expect when nuclear armed tiny dicked egotists decide to play war.

I guess those numbers that were fake under Obama but real under Trump are going back to being fake.

 

 

 

Bezos, is obviously reading my post. Hit me up, Jeff! This is probably the dumbest conspiracy to come out of the White House and right wing media.

Conway coming in spicy.

 

Read his opinion piece in WaPo today about him flipping, what hit me was him saying it wasnt about being in right side of history but making sure the right people were writing it in the future.  Dude saw the light at the end of that tunnel and realized it wasnt light, damn.

I am quite afraid of what a recession does. This isn’t 2007, when cooler heads on both the right and left managed to get an absolutely crap situation under control. 

 

Even a mild recession has the risk of spiraling out of control because Trump is first and foremost a self serving asshole, who will not put the country ahead of his own interests and needs. And their isn’t a lick of self awareness or desire to admit fault in your average GOP voter, who will mindlessly rregurgitate bull**** talking points and conspiracies rather than acknowledging reality.

Don't forget to add all of the Republicans, if they aren't against what Trump's doing they are for it.

Agreed, and it was a controversial solution because they panicked and jus threw a  bunch of money at the banks to keep them from collapsing (caught uninformed same way that lead to it happening in the first place). 

 

My only hope is someone will tell Trump if it gets bad enough that it will cost his company as well, that we wont be able to jus slither off and maintain the same lifestyle he was living before he took office.  Otherwise, I can see him doing nothing intentionally as long as he can to deny the problem then accept it and co tinue to do nothing to get property prices as low as he can to gobble them up once out of office. 

 

He ran to stoke his pride and make money, I dont see that changing no matter what happens, honestly, congress may have to go around him with veto proof bills.

too many dicks in here : )

 

to all:

remember that while we tend to give some latitude on some rules in this forum, depending on the context/details, you're still accountable for the calls you make

 

and some are not that good at doing the safety dance----that's where you're edgy, but phrase things that in a way that's passable....as the rules say, if you're unsure, play it safe

 

if you're willing to take the risk, that's cool,  but if you get flagged just don't pm us with any "but i saw tommy post..." crap cuz 9 out of 10 that will immediately sink you

Seems like Trump is already panicking and looking for ways not to deal with a possible recession, rather ways to "cook the books" just enough to hold off on anything disastrous taking place before the 2020 election season.

The scariest thing about all of the economic conspiracy stuff that Trump pushes is that he actually truly believes it, most likely.

It is only a matter of time before even right wing news sources can't deny the oncoming recession, so I am sure they are already concocting ways to explain how it is has nothing to do with Trump:

 

1: Trump's tax cuts limited the damage

2: It's all because the Dems took the house

3: Without Trump's policies the recession would have hit sooner and harder

4: We need to re-elect Trump to save us from this recession

5: It's Obama's fault for not having an even bigger economic recovery.

6: but her emails

Mike, you summed it up pretty well. Just send that to the RNC so they can pass it along to Fox.

The possibility that Trump may stop being President caused a global financial panic.
