Re: Tennessee Promise

I think there are actually quite a few that do that (many are income-based though).

That's kind of the point. The one in Tennessee is not needs based. It's not "welfare" or a penalty if you happen to have a good [more]

Re: Tennessee Promise

Great. BUT! Why require full time attendance?

A normal course load is 15 credits, the requirement here is 12. I think the idea is so that it doesn't become a long "student life" lifestyle, as opposed to working hard and [more]

Re: Progressives & the Democratic Party

But you can't change if you hide in the middle of the road and never take on the real problems - like healthcare, and immigration, and campaign finance reform because you are afraid of the names the right wing echo chamber are going to call [more]

Tennessee Promise

I decided to start a new thread here rather than continuing to argue about “math”, and yesterday recalled that my bright Red state, Tennessee, has one of the most progressive education programs in the country. Not with K-12, which is pretty [more]

Re: Our changing economy

If you were a high school guidance counselor shouldn't you be suggesting students take more math rather than extolling the virtues of a job mounting tires?

Not if the person doesn’t like math. There is little point in forcing [more]

Re: No One Gets Rich By Shunning New Cars

I’m tempted in this already overlong thread to say “I did,” but that would be an exaggeration.

But I have *always* bought used cars, except when Westinghouse was buying new cars for me as a work perk. At the moment I have 3: a 1997 Infiniti [more]

Re: Our changing economy

Take car repair. Cars are increasingly becoming more like computers with wheels. As Tesla is demonstrating, future car repair will more likely involve fixing glitches in the self-driving software than replacing belts

Ah yes, the stock market

Just a quick observation that Fortune Magazine notes that Boeing's share price is actually *higher* now than it was at this same time in 2019. And higher than 2018.

Re: Mike Bloomberg

After all I didn't think it would accomplish much, that she would only be able to delay sending them over for approximately the amount of time of the recess, and that it wouldn't get the Senate to change their approach to the trial. [more]

Re: Our changing economy

But imagine if you were a high school career counselor. Telling kids to follow their passion without also suggesting that they take as many math classes as they can handle would in my opinion be irresponsible.

Well this is just [more]

Re: Mike Bloomberg

Do you think that maybe the electoral has changed in 11 years? I think you need to update your argument because people do change their views.

The reason the legislation barely passed is because Pelosi made sure she put in exactly as much as she could get away with and no more. Nothing was added or subtracted to insure people could keep their own doctor because that had nothing to do [more]

Looked at it when redoing our guest suite. Decided against, because it meant throwing out all of the cookware and starting over. More to the point, it also limits what you might add in cookware in the future. The selection and styling of [more]

I do think Bloomberg offers the best opportunity to split Republicans, since he IS a Republican.

Re: The Mortgage Mistake - Part 2

But his "zero-risk" scenario is far from zero risk. For one, you are tying up lots of money into a single, illiquid asset. But another major risk is inflation.

Another is, well, housing. Sure it does well most of the time. [more]
