    Critical race theory in Idaho

    That's a good point. As Binman noted earlier, everyone tends to make decisions that favor themselves. The North argued against and eventually abolished slavery, but they had no problems with arguing that slaves shouldn't be counted as anything when it came to congressional representation. So...

    Critical race theory in Idaho

    During the formation of our country, there was a dispute over how to structure Congress. Smaller states wanted equal representation, while larger states wanted representation based off population. They decided to split Congress into 2 chambers with the Senate having equal representation and the...

    Critical race theory in Idaho

    I would support CRT if it centered around promoting common sense discussions like this. It loses me when it starts broad brushing everyone into certain categories though. Hopefully the concept will evolve into something more productive over time.

    Critical race theory in Idaho

    Legacy college admissions - I tend to agree with you on this issue. Colleges shouldn't show preferential treatment to anyone. They shouldn't show preferential treatment to someone because their parents went there, and they shouldn't show preferential treatment to someone based off their race...

    Critical race theory in Idaho

    What examples can you provide of systemic racism that still exists in today's world? I'm not asking for examples of inequality of outcome, but actual discriminatory policy that leads to it.

    The Market Thread

    It sounds like interest rate hikes are still a ways off, but the Fed will start discussing the tapering of asset purchases.

    The effect of lockdowns on Commiefornia

    California no longer pays more to Washington than it gets back, study finds It appears that CA was essentially federal revenue neutral going into the pandemic. I'm sure they took in a lot more than they sent back last year, but most states probably fall into the same category. I don't have...

    The effect of lockdowns on Commiefornia

    :lol: California defies the doom of a $54B deficit in 2020.** *CA received $346B in federal aid in 2020. *CA's unemployment rate of 8.3% is the 2nd highest in the nation.

    OSUMBB Bryce Wiliams Returning!!

    Seniors that choose to return for an additional year like Williams won't count against the scholarship limits, so he shouldn't prevent Mitchell from retaining his scholarship. He could lose it if the NCAA reinstates the scholarship reductions when they rule on the appeal. He could also lose it...

    Covid-19

    Interesting chart. It looks like there's a big spike in job searches following the announcement that states will end enhanced unemployment benefits early, but it tails off a few weeks later. Hopefully that trend shows that people are finding gainful employment. We should find out in the coming...

    CFP moving to 12 teams?

    The idea that Notre Dame will never receive a bye just warms my heart. :D

    Covid-19

    The fair market value of an individual's salary is determined by the supply and demand for the skillset they possess. The problem is that the supply of lower tier workers is being manipulated by enhanced unemployment benefits and stimulus checks. Why would someone accept a job with a lower...

    Covid-19

    It does seem like an odd decision. We're spending $24M to solve a problem that should be solved eventually with time. That being said, our state had an $800M surplus from the stimulus bills, and there may be requirements in place to spend some of it on the pandemic. So that may be the reason...

    Covid-19

    The extended unemployment benefits don't expire until the 26th of this month. I bet we'll see a drop in unemployment rates by the end of next month.
