I dunno, 5k return in 6 months sounds good to me. It's 100% return in half a year. Hell, my Eric Garner bet has been going on for 2 years, 6 months, and counting. Its not complete til December 31st 2017. Well named is holding my money as we speak.

So this is the first year you will out earn her, correct?

Wil, we earn similar amounts. I'm around a decade younger than you. I live in a lower cost state with no income tax. El oh el William

Average 40 a week, maybe 5-15 days (12 hour days) overtime a year. 10 weeks off built in, 4 weeks vacation. I can do 84 hours in a week, I can do 0.

We get dental coverage, too.

Samsonh, you should take the bet. Free 5k for you!

Can we

b) avoid completely content-less and off-topic personal attacks (I deleted one)

Thanks

Jalfrezi is obsessed with wil, so maybe a new separate thread where he can pursue his obsession would be appropriate.

The DOW continues to reach record highs, just as it was doing prior to Trump. The DOW went from something like 8500 to 19200 under Obama.

We had 11m undocumented immigrants when Obama took office, we had something like 11.3m or so when he left. By the way, I'm pretty sure deep down Trump voters don't truly want all immigrants deported; it would lose them one of their favorite talking points, not to mention taking away one group they can blame for their miserable life failures. Jim Bob, a 50-something Rust Belt white religious male with no degree who thinks the world is 6,000 years old, has thoroughly convinced himself that Jose Suarez of Los Angeles is the reason he only makes $39K a year down at the plant. He doesn't want to have to face reality, which is that his woes exist for a much simpler reason: he sucks.

The decision to pull out of the Paris Accord has been almost universally decried as ridiculous and horrendous.

Re: President Trump

The facts are Trump is president, Republicans own both houses (54/100, 247/435) , the supreme Court, most governors (33/50), mayors (60%), and of course all the law enforcement.
Republicans own the Senate 52-48, not 54-46; you're thinking of prior to Trump. As you can see, their margin actuality shrunk in '16.

The House is currently 239-194; again, you're thinking of prior to the '16 election. The gap shrunk, may shrink a bit again in a week with Ossoff, and may result in a D House majority in 2018 as Trump continues to bomb.

Conservatives had a majority in SCOTUS for nearly 30 years, from the late 80's until Scalia thankfully kicked. During that time period, they got virtually nothing conservative accomplished. Then came a 14 month gap, which made Republicans look like bitter, vindictive obstructionist fools, followed by the appointment of someone who, while still horrible, is less of a regressive, bigoted, Bible-thumping homophobic slob than Nino was.

The vast majority of Republican Governors fit into one of two categories (there's some crossover between them):
A) completely inept fools who are destroying their states (Walker, Bryant, the combo of Bentley/Ivey, Lepage, Brownback, Scott, Christie)
B) at the helm of horrific red states no one would ever want to voluntarily live in (Bevin, Hutchinson, Bryant)

The really good ones, like Charlie Baker, Larry Hogan, and Brian Sandoval, are either socially liberal or socially moderate, only slightly right of center on other issues, and can't stand Trump.

I've never seen the "60%" figure as it relates to Mayors. I'm curious as to what the qualifying cutoff is as far as population for that stat. 10,000? 50,000? Virtually every large city in the US has a Democrat Mayor; the only exception I can think of is San Diego's Kevin Faulconer, who is a socially and culturally progressive Republican who doesn't even mention Trump's name.

And Trump's been an inept trainwreck.

Any other statistics you'd like to throw at us?

Let's not forget control of 32/50 Legislatures as well.

Um, and you can have LA, Chicago, Detroit, and now DeBlasio turning NYC into ****.

Interesting. 5/30 (16.7%) of the top cities, which means his 60% overall figure means there's a hell of a lot of R Mayors in hick towns with 29,000 people in them.

In the US House and state legislature seats, as well as several governorships, yes. The Senate, no, solely because the map happens to be nice this cycle for Republicans.

I've lived in NYC my entire life. It's quite fine here. The violent crime rate is 1/7th of what it was 25 years ago. The social scene is amazing. We've made huge infrastructure improvements over the past couple of years. Bill DeBlasio has a 60% approval rating; his two potential opponents are both lifeless stiffs whose name recognition likely doesn't top 20%.

Oh, and by the way, the 17% of American counties Hillary Clinton won in 2016? They provide 64% of this country's GDP.
