FAIRNESS in taxation? A thread.
Is it fair to tax saved money (that was already taxed) because the owner died? The estate tax may be politically logical and a valuable revenue instrument, but its imposition has nothing to do with “fair.”
Is it fair to tax the gains from wise investments when we don’t allow deductions for the losses from unwise ones? Increased risks are added to the wrong side of the equation and, as a result, reduce investments. Is this fair? Hardly! Maybe "reasonable." But not fair.
Is it fair that the top 1 percent of wage earners pay 37 percent of the income taxes? They don’t use 37 times the government-provided services of the remaining 99 percent of the country. They don’t place 37 times the burden on societal resources....

@margaretbarthel I don't do podcasts. I prefer to read the text, Faster. But the @Polk_Azov Battalion, #DefendersOfMariupol do NOT identify with Hitler. Their hero is #PatrickHenry They ID with #AmericanPatriots They are @Ukraine's #Patriots They want freedom. Is she McLean as in McLean House?
@margaretbarthel @Polk_Azov @Ukraine What does insipid transplant Barthel know about this history? McClean is an art historian & the destruction of those superb equine statues, great works of art that put Richmond on European tour guide lists as a place to see, is cause of destruction of $2B History/Heritage toursim
@margaretbarthel @Polk_Azov @Ukraine Adding context explaining the real history associated with equine staues was recommended, along with removal of Jeff Davis, and addition of statues of The Fourteen African American Union soldiers who helped win key battles outside Richmond, each winning Medals of Honor.They WON/2

1/Tonight, for the 17th time in the last 50 years, the #StanleyCup champion returns to defend their crown. This time, the #TBLightning are going for that rare feat - a three-peat and #dynasty status.
2/Three-peats and dynasties themselves are relatively rare. Below is a tour of the dynasties from the last 50 years starting with the 1974 Oakland #Athletics completing a three-peat with a 4-1 win over the #Dodgers with this home run.
3/ In 1979, the #CanadiensMTL completed their second four-peat, winning 4-1 over the New York Rangers. #StanleyCup #Dynasty

¿QUIÉN GANÓ EL DRAFT 2022?

No sabremos hasta dentro de al menos un par de temporadas.

Poco + de 40% de los picks de 1era Ronda no funcionan en profesional.

Pero si podemos ver quién ganó en temporadas anteriores.

(No fueron los Jets)

Acompáñanos en este 🧵:

#NFLDraft
Para medir 📏 el éxito de un equipo en un draft, necesitamos un método.
Podríamos usar el WAV que mide el valor acumulado de carrera de un jugador y sumar los WAV de los jugadores seleccionados por equipo.
Si fuera así #Saints y #BillsMafia hubieran ganado en 2017.
#NFL
👇🏻
El tema es que no todos los picks son creados igual.
No es lo mismo el 1er pick del draft al #32.

Necesitamos agregar al método un valor al pick y compararlo con el valor del jugador en la cancha.

CAPITAL Y RETORNO del pick.

Over the next week I will be recapping my overall thoughts on what every team did in the 2022 #NFLDraft.

Today I will start with the NFC West and cover the @AZCardinals, @RamsNFL, @49ers and @Seahawks
the @AZCardinals recap

2 (55) TE Trey McBride
3 (87) EDGE Cam Thomas
3 (100) Edge Myjai Sanders
6 (201) RB Keaontay Ingram
6 (215) OG Lecitus Smith
7 (244) CB Christian Matthew
7 (256) LB Jesse Luketa
7 (257) OG Marquis Hayes

fav pick: Thomas
value pick: Luketa
? pick: McBride
draft haul has to include trading for M Brown giving them explosive speed WR they need with loss of Kirk & suspension of Nuk. I think they had more pressing needs than TE after giving Ertz a new 3 yr deal. Think Thomas can become starter & Luketa could have went early 4th

So some interesting things have surfaced in the last few weeks that I want to share. Be patient with me, I’m slow & get interrupted a lot. But, I think it’s worth it to share this information before the mid-term elections.

😃 Please don’t forget to vote in November…💙
This article from 04/06/2022 has been weighing on my mind…it’s regarding the #RockbridgeNetwork, defined as a coalition.

What is a “political coalition” in the US?
Not much. It’s basically a verbal, non-regulated agreement to finance an agreed upon political agenda.
While #RockbridgeNetwork is being considered a “new GOP coalition”, it isn’t, think #CambridgeAnalytica. Plus, it is not the only “new GOP coalition” popping up before mid-term elections. #ChestnutStreetCouncil has been started by Matt Schlapp, think #KochNetwork

A gift from #Ireland🇮🇪 to #Ukraine🇺🇦.
We know the price of #Nationhood
The difficulty of emerging from the threat of swift and terrible war from our former overlords.
The birth of a nation and the creation of a people all too often are birthed in blood.
1/4
Our own #Patriots believed in the birth of #Ireland in #BloodSacrifice
#PadraigPearse said it best at the grave of O'Donovan Rossa.
I am going to take the liberty of paraphrasing, to swap #Ukraine for #Ireland in the hope it shows how we #StandWithUkraine
2/4
They think that they have pacified #Ukraine.
They think that they have purchased half of us and intimidated the other half.
They think that they have foreseen everything, think that they have provided against everything;

Texts from Bill Belichick to Brian Flores, congratulating Brian for landing the #Giants job.

Belichick thought he was texting Brian Daboll. He was texting Flores by mistake.

Not all teams are trying to win, we knew that, now here's proof.

#Dolphins owner Stephen Ross was upset with Brian Flores for being too successful. Resented him for it.

Probably has something to do with him firing a coach that has been wining the past two seasons in Miami.
Story keeps getting wilder and wilder.

** Post Week 10 // Pre-Week 11 Thought Dump **

Coming off another wild week of upsets.

Among NFL best records:

8-2 #Titans have lost to 2-7 #Jets
7-2 #Cowboys to 5-5 #Broncos
7-3 #Rams to 4-5 #49ers
6-3 #Bills to 2-7 #Jaguars
6-3 #Bucs to 3-6 #WFT
6-3 #Ravens to 3-7 #Dolphins
Random Takes & Notes:

- Standing by Rhamondre Stevenson as #Patriots best RB with Wk 10 as confirmation bias
- Rashod Bateman hasn’t hurt Marquise Brown whatsoever; The Real Hollywood Avging 13 targets since Bateman’s return
- Jeff Wilson SZN if Eli Mitchell (finger) sits v Jags
- Josh Allen used play action on 57% of Week 10 drops — nearly 2x the highest rate of any team all last year. He destroyed, of course
- #Bills backfield has devolved into 3-way RBBC. Avoid
- Long as #Bears keep letting Justin Fields run, he’ll produce. Back2Back top-10 FF starts

** Post-Week 5 // Pre-Week 6 #fantasyfootball thread **

Weeks 1-5 reinforced that one of the top commonalities between real life & fantasy football is we’re all trying to win battle of attrition.

In season-long FF, churning the end of benches is critical to winning that war.
QB Thoughts:

My personal Top 6 in NFL MVP race through 5 games:

Lamar Jackson
Kyler Murray
Tom Brady
Justin Herbert
Dak Prescott
Josh Allen

* In sports betting, this looks like a buy-low window for Patrick Mahomes, whose odds have lengthened amid #Chiefs early struggles.
RB Thoughts:

* Elijah Mitchell plays @ different speed than Trey Sermon

* AJ Dillon gonna be solid RB2/flx next 2 months

* I way undersold Zack Moss. Growing role + #Bills legit DEF + Charmin-soft schedule put Moss in great spot

* Must-stash: Marlon Mack & Rhamondre Stevenson

🚑WEEK 3 INJURY THREAD🚑

Full write up out Tuesday am with @TheFFBallers

My concise thoughts here 👇
#Patriots RB James White

R Hip injury similar to that of Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip subluxation). Will have imaging tomorrow to determine severity but I'm expecting White to land on IR
#Giants WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton

Both players exited early with hamstring strains, with Shepard being ruled out immediately. Would plan for both to miss Week 4 with good possibility both players miss more than one week. Expect both to have an MRI tomorrow

Looking at the draft order to see how realistic a trade-up for a QB would be for the #Patriots

JAX, NYJ will probably go Lawrence+Wilson/Fields.

Doubt MIA would trade with NE, but that’s a prime trade up spot if CAR or DET wanted to make a move.

(cont.)
With ATL restructuring Matt Ryan, it makes very little sense for them to draft a QB, will probably go OL or Defense.

PHI has committed to building around Hurts for atleast this year, that likely takes them out of the QB sweepstakes.
DET and CAR are sneaky, they could easily take a QB but also have guys in place so if they’re not in love, they could pass.

Realistically probably going to have to jump ahead of one of those guys if you want to take Lance or Fields depending on how the board shakes up.

Nelson Agholor is an immediate upgrade as a primary deep threat for the #Patriots offense. Damiere Byrd was good for what he was, but should never have been asked to be the team's #2 receiver.

Agholor can fill his role from day one a lot better.

(Thread)
Agholor has great burst off the line and can get up to top speed very quickly. Here he gets an inside release against the CB and uses his hands and subtle body lean to stack and get on top of the CB, then tracks the ball over his shoulder for a TD.

Very hard to do. #Patriots
Running go routes isn't as simple as running faster than the CB, especially when they are playing this far off. Agholor knows this and has to stem release inside, then attack the corners outside hip to get him to do a turn to win on this go.

Doesn't lose momentum and wins clean
