“Methinks Snyder is cursed. It does not matter who he brings in as coach and which players he signs, it always ends up badly. If I was RGIII's agent, I would ask to be traded.

Out here in S. California, they have a fair each year when it is not supposed to rain. However, because the venue was built on hallowed Indian ground, it inadvertently has rained every year.

Snyder should consider a name-change for his franchise just to be sure that an Indian curse is not holding his team back. Or, he could get rid of the offensive coordinator - Shanahan, the son.”

“WOW!! You are talking about Union work rules, and we all know that the companies fought tooth and nail to get these rules gutted over the years.

Actually, there is no reason to have a 2nd person in the cab as long as the train is equipped with positive train control technology and a "dead-mans" switch alerting system. In this case the locomotive (which was unmanned and pushing) did have the alerting system but companies delayed installing this in cab cars where the engineer was located.”

Never said that. I know from doing Economics at the Master's level that the money multiplier effect (the number of times a dollar is re-spent through consumerism) is more immediate than if WB would invest said amount to realize gains later.”

“I predicted a Romney defeat way before Nate became the media prognosticator of that event. However, Germany, Portugal and even Ghana would be tough for our team to beat. Then again, I believe in miracles.”

“The Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) is a payroll tax paid by employers on employee wages. The tax is 6.2% on the first $7,000 an employee earns; any earnings beyond $7,000 are not taxed. In practice, the actual percentage paid is usually 0.8%. This is because employers receive a credit of up to 5.4% for any state unemployment taxes they pay. After June 30, 2011 the FUTA tax rate decreased to 6.0%, which means with credit for state unemployment taxes a business owner will pay 0.6%. While almost all small business owners will get the full 5.4% credit, it is still important to check state unemployment tax regulations to insure eligibility.

“I think you missed the point. If a billionaire is given $10million for example, he will likely invest it to realize returns in the future. $10million given to those who need to survive will be spent immediately. The money multiplier effect would be more immediate with the second option.”

“Warren Buffett "socks it away where it doesn't do any good for anybody but him"? If that were true, Buffett would sit like Scrooge McDuck in a giant vault of coins and currency. But, it isn't true, since Buffett carefully invests in companies whose products and services he expects to be in demand. That's why Berkshire Hathaway owns shares in IBM, Phillips 66, Wal-Mart, General Motors, Exxon Mobil, American Express, DaVita Medical, and Coca-Cola. Are you saying that investing in the production of gasoline, food, health care, computers, retail stores and financial services, and in the employment of people who work for these companies, does no one any good but Warren Buffett?”

“You are incorrect in stating that ONLY the employer pays unemployment benefits. Half of all unemployment insurance premiums are paid by the employee. It's a federally-mandated part of any employment contract. However, your suggestion that some workers get paid under the table is correct. Why are employers not being penalized for this practice? Could it be because circumventing laws saves them money?”

mahalo gop on Dec 7, 2013 at 13:07:33

“First of all every state is different and in my State (Hawaii) it is only the employer who pays the unemployment insurance not the employee. It is the employee who is benefiting from "double dipping" a person paying someone "under the table" is a common practice for seasonal and part time work. Which is a reality in America and the innocent need no excuse, this is angle being used by the unemployed not the employer.”

“only 3 states have a employee contribution system. There is no such thing as a federally mandated employment contract in the private sector.”
