You really need to try beating the horse a bit more.

Is that what they're calling it these days?

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is holding a press conference for the first time since the Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson fiascos derailed the NFL season.

He reiterated that he made a mistake in initially suspending Rice for only two games.

"I got it wrong on a number of levels," he said, "But now I will get it right and do whatever is necessary to accomplish that."

He announced that the league and the union will work together on a new personal conduct policy. He said he wants it done by the Super Bowl.

There were no real specifics. For those looking for something significant out of the commissioner, the press conference has been anticlimactic.

Aye, We'll be here with updates.

Large portions of the Appalachians and Rockies are in flyover, as are the Mississippi, Ohio, Red River and Colorado Rivers.

If a good number of the states seceded, we'd end up looking like Europe, and there'd be passport and custom controls @ the borders.

A handful of liberal-leaning experts urged lawmakers to make it easier for workers to join unions and and to limit the power of corporations, among other things.

Wang's model, which relies solely on available polls of races, gives Democrats an 80% chance of retaining control of the Senate. It has been much more bullish for Democrats than other forecasters, including Silver.

I would like someone to explain why food and energy deflation is bad.

What if it leaked over and dampened the skirts of housing and stocks?

It's worse than that. It makes it very difficult for producers to plan how much to grow, and could result in food shortages in the future. That could hurt GDP.

It's kinda funny, but remember when (a few years back) everyone thought Netflix was doomed and their business model was broken?

They're from what might be called trash fish, but only because they're ugly. The meat is flaky and tasty, and perfectly healthy.

the difficult part for me is that i will probably pay cash...which makes it hard to figure out if i can really afford it.

If you're being serious I would suggest at least borrowing 1/2, unless you have 5X purchase liquid.

Maybe borrowing 95% would be better in a falling market...

It's pretty awful speaking from experience. Brain zaps are really unpleasant.

~650,000 from the estimates I could find.

A fraction of a percent. I don't think these individuals would affect the balance of any "household" survey.

curious wrote:

Here's one interesting detail regarding the survey...
Since the CPS is a household survey, persons who are homeless and not living in shelters are not included in the sample.

Do you think that even 1% of US residents is homeless? I doubt it. If they include cell phones, they might even be capturing that small percentage. I'd suspect that the percentage is so small that there'd be no more that one person an any given statistical sample in just about any city in the country.
