    “I do! Have you heard that they can make up to $78,000 a year including benefits?!?!? God damn fat cats… They probably roll blunts in 100 dollar bills and then throw them away, just because they can afford it…”


    Saw a guy on the news-ish channel I shall not name, he was screaming:

    “Do you know that teachers make $51k on AVERAGE. ON AVERAGE!!!!! $51K. PLUS BENEFITS. They don’t work summers. They are out shopping by 3 in the afternoon.”

    I swear to the gods his cuff links cost $51,000.

    Some people just don’t understand irony.

    My only problem with baned walks is that when I don’t have anywhere to be at any time I can’t figure out exactly what pace I should move at, so I pretty much am a slave to the tempo of the music I’m listening to, which leads to stumbles and general clumsiness when there’s sudden tempo changes or someone throws in a heavy off beat somewhere…

    Silly: Growing up = Hippie Speedball

    I’m smiling, I ain’t judging. I just enjoy our version of what grown up is. Mine is I don’t touch the bane until the kiddo goes to sleep.

  5. gratefulcub Says:


    Or when I am the only one dancing at the train station and it takes me way too long to figure out why everyone is looking at me.

  6. garretc Says:


    Yeah, the Daily Show ran clips of the Fox News nuts ranting about how much teachers get paid, then showed those same folks arguing against rescinding tax cuts on 250,000+ by saying that 250,000 a year is practically the poverty line these days. It’s embarrassing how stupid America must be that we can just be lied to our face like that.

    Anywho, gotta go get my swim on, you cats have a good hour or so until I’m back…

    ESPN sucks, We know Rutgers got jobbed. It’s over stop analyzing from your ivory towers.

    Silly and GTC on walks:

    My lady and I used to take latenight 2-3hr walks (bane free, bane’d, or any other way) but opted up for bikes. We go much farther now so the territories don’t get stagnant. If you loop so the same area enough you begin to know it too well. I like to get lost with the bane, plus we have a mini ipod speaker that clips on the a belt-loop that is pretty clutch.

  9. kayatosh Says:

    silly; right on. walking is therapeutic and uplifting. doesn’t hurt to be a little baned.

  10. SillyWilly Says:


    Madison is great, but AW is right, there are somethings that happen in Wisco that no one should have to see

    haha. I love Wisconsin, but there’s definitely some easy things to make fun of.

  11. bouncin fan Says:

    I don’t know shit about this. But my girl works at CPS here in Chicago and is always bitching about the dynamic here. She says there is a huge divide between young teachers that are more open to having their pay judged by performance especially if it gives them an opportunity to make more and the old guard. These older teachers that have been milking the CPS school system for decades as it’s students fell farther and farther behind. They just want to preserve their power and continue to dishonor their profession.

    These teachers are what gives the teachers union a bad rap in our city.

    the richest 400 people in america combined have the same amount of money as the poorest 50% of america.

    richest 400 people = poorest 155,000,000 people

    moral: distribution of wealth in ‘merica is an issue.

  13. AintNoTele Says:

    Wow chuck, that is disgusting

  14. SillyWilly Says:


    my issue is not dancing

    one time I just couldn’t resist stopping and breaking it down

    a bus stopped right next to me and a group of really good looking girls stepped off the bus just cheezin up over me.

    i was super embarrassed and it totally wrecked my vibe

    but i couldn’t help it.

  15. gratefulcub Says:


    I live in Kentucky, I understand about having things around you that are easy to make fun of.

    AW, BF, PG
    the unions have fought for the wrong things over the years, imo. They fought to hard to keep people safe from perfomance based reprecussions, instead of working conditions, benefits, wages. Not that the latter wasn’t negotiated as well, but the former should never have been as high a priority as it was.

    I’m a very pro union guy. But, I think that actions of some particular unions have been less than stellar.

    The issue is that unions are the last remaining organization with any power whatsoever, that fights for the worker instead of corporate interests. Remove unions, you remove labor’s counterbalance, and you remove the electoral base of the Democrats (both in fundraising and the foot soldiers for the GOTV initiatives)

  16. AintNoTele Says:

    I break it down regardless of whatever is going on. My car has no tint whatsoever either, looks like a magnifying glass so I always get mad looks while a I go ape-shit in the ride. I like to roll the sun roof down and the windows and alternate jabbing one hand out the top and one out the side. I’ve also been known to put cruise control and and stick my head out the sunroof while going over bridges. EPIC!

  17. phoammhead Says:


    i think those girls were probably cheezin’ up over your good looks. give yourself proper credit, man.

  18. bouncin fan Says:

    No doubt Cub

    I’m a huge union guy myself. I’m just a capitalist and believe competition in the workplace and performance judging is a must. Too much job security makes lazy works unfortunately. Human nature. I’m all for paying the working man more as long as they take pride in their work and do it to their best ability.

    Also 250K for a couple living in a big city is far from rich. They need to go after higher tax brackets than that IMO. 250K couple living in Chicago or New York is simply middle class.

  19. SillyWilly Says:

    Right on, bouncin’.

    in the end, i think the real issue is the tax code. a millionaire’s dollar isn’t worth as much as mine.


    i don’t know if the mop top, patchy beard, and ignorance of even rudimentary fashion sense scores me as “attractive” in most young ladies’ book.

    i try to appeal to a headier womanhood.


    thanks, phoamm.

  20. gratefulcub Says:


    I actually agree 100% with the first paragraph.

    As to the second, yes and no. But mainly yes 😉 The problem with this is that our electoral system gives much greater weight in both of the legislative chambers to rural America. If we want to tax fairly, we would tax based on the ‘real income’ of people, which would include a wage rate index. Income x 1.45 in NYC and Chicago, and income x .75 in rural KY.

    Now try to pass that tax law when you depend on votes outside of the cities.

  21. Robear Says:

    The human element,

    does some things bad,





  22. gratefulcub Says:

    “i try to appeal to a headier womanhood”

    That’s a shame, because I believe all three women I saw at phish shows last year were taken. And one of them might have been a man in a dress, not sure.

    Had my first robane experience this week with mitch.

    He didn’t tell me that was the case until afterwards.

    Training Day’d
