    860…the good news is…you’re working!

    Hopefully there’s some over time in it for you.

    If you’re young, you will bounce back quick.

    Plus it will give you something to think back on when you’re older. :)

    If you’re old already, it gives you something to gripe about now! lol

    you’re not the guy that runs around with a bottle tryin’ to catch that schit, are you ???

    i never did get charging so much money for schit that falls from the sky…

  • RaiderLen

    860, That means that it needs to rain some more I presume.

    So I guess mabey you could gripe all the way to the bank? :)

    Have you guys noticed that alot of analysts do not think McClain is a good 4-3 MLB. They think he is a classic 3-4 ILB.

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    Len, my tax rate here is 50%, I’m single, working in the most expensive state to live in, overtime is a constant, when we got privatized 15 years ago, our group went from 62 people to 26, trying to do the same and more. They would rather pay overtime than hire people and pay full benny’s, too bad….

  • RaiderLen

    Aig…I’ve read those reports.

    I’m not a Scout, so I don’t know what to believe.

    Seems like a safe investment from a Proffessional Football Player standpoint.

    How that all fits into what the Raiders are trying to accomplish on D, is another question.

    Not even the great billionaire Al Davis has a 50% tax rate, re-calibrate.

  • M Lonetree

    860,

    you live in the state where Stewart Resnick owns all the water rights and his wife runs the biggest bottled water scam there is?

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    Kell, you drinking water? Fed is 38.5% state is 6/1/2%, fica is 4%. Get out your calculater and do the math, and use your left hand, please!

  • http://blstb.msn.com/i/55/90A2853B6CFBCC2AFC987BB18B832.jpg vegas raider

    I don’t know if it is 50%, but Connecticut is one of the harshest taxed states in the unions.

    Extra state taxes on purchases, extra taxes on investment gains. I’m sure 860 can tell it better than me.

    Vegas, when i’m 62, that little place in Key West is lookin good!

  • aig

    Len,

    I like McClain alot. However my enthusiasm was tempered by those scout reports. He is a fine FB player though.

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    Tax burden here is decided if you are married, idiot. You couln’t attract someone to buy my place, that’s why you live in Calli, Kell…….

    ==============================================
    Exactly.

    What I want to read and hear about our #8 pick.

    Can’t miss. Homerun. Great Choice.

  • http://www.car.org KoolKell

    Income tax is determined by income, and 38% is the top bracket in the US, and I doubt you’re in it.

    The only two I heard those about were Huff and Gallery.

  • RaiderLen

    Vegas…Yep lol

    I still would prefer that to the groans of DHB.

    You understand what I mean.

  • BoJacks

    We need to draft Spikes.

    I don’t care what his 40 is, I know he covers 5-10 yards in a hurry.

    And since he doesn’t need protection from some fat DT in front of him since he knows how to shed blocks.

    Let’s not make the same mistake that we did with Mualauga…whatever, that drunk dude from on the Bengals

  • aig

    Unfortunately he doesnt have the 40 speed Al adores. Sucks but it is what it is. Wouldnt it be something if Al trades up for Suh?

    Kell, when you get a real life, and support your wife, say something, otherwise, clamp it, no-nothing.

    Man, that was a huge whiff on Mualuga, another fine FB player.

    ===============================================
    I could see that happening before he would trade down, which is what he ought to do imo.

  • aig

    Either trade up for Suh or trade down and get an extra pick in the first 2 rounds. We should be looking for DT, OT, and MLB in the first 2 rounds. You guys follow this guy Geno Adkins from Georgia. He was supposed to be a beast and gave Iupati fits at the senior bowl.

    860 said “They” were privatized 15 years ago.

    Doesn’t sound like the water department to me.

  • http://blstb.msn.com/i/55/90A2853B6CFBCC2AFC987BB18B832.jpg vegas raider

    I think Spikes falls into the 3rd round.

    And if we haven’t done anything at LB, I would be all over it.

    For a potential late-round steal, I like the Sharpton kid from the U. When I watched them play, he had a presence, and strip it all down, he is still a MLB from the U. There is something to be said about that.

    Probably could be had in the 5th round.

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    Aig, In real lfe, I cannot see Suh getting past 3, there are too many teams that can use his attributes. I can’t see a responsible Team letting him get through, and we are not the best looking team for him to come to, although we could use him. We should trade down and pick up some good looking talent, develope them, but immediately bolster out lines, ours truely suck! We have a decent team behind them, but our O-Line took out 3 QB’s in seven games?

  • RaiderLen

    Vegas, I don’t know anything about the Guy you speak of…But the Raiders have been pretty good in the recent past with later round picks.

    Hopefully more of the same this year.

  • http://www.car.org KoolKell

    I’ve had political discussions with 860 before. And that 50% tax rate comment was a political one.

    Nobody working for hourly wages with their hands and back are going to be in the 38% tax bracket.

    Daryl Sharpton I believe.

    I think he is a cousin of the great Rev. Al Sharpton.

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    Len, when I was hired, we worked for the city, the city came under financial pressure and privatized us to a private company to run the water and sewer works. Google Privatization.

  • http://atm Raider O

    38%?! So…it went up by 3% for 2010. I hate Taxes over 20%!

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    Kell, my PHD will send you into a tizzy, don’t try to rationalize it, your a house salesman, er, househusband.

  • RaiderLen

    Vegas,

    If Daryl has anything closley resembling the rap of Al Sharpton….I want Him on the Team for the quotes!

  • BoJacks

    Privatization of public goods has been the downfall of this country. Cut the staff, raise prices, and milk the taxpayers.

    Does Easy Bay Municipal District still exist or is everything PG&E now?

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    Raider O, you’ve actually never earned 6 figures before, go to H/R Block, they will explain it to you.

  • http://atm Raider O

    38%?! So…it went up by 3% for 2010. I hate Taxes over 20%!

    I like it to be:
    0- 49,999 : 10%
    50,000- 99,999 : 20%
    100,000- 199,999 : 30%
    200,000- 999,999 : 35%
    1,000,000 + : 40%

    Got it. The Government can’t handle their business.

    Evidence. 62 employees to 26. Same service, lower overhead.

  • http://www.car.org KoolKell

    EBMUD is still around.

  • http://blstb.msn.com/i/55/90A2853B6CFBCC2AFC987BB18B832.jpg vegas raider

    35% IS the current highest tax bracket, federally

  • http://atm Raider O

    860,

    I never made 6 figures, but Im studying taxes this semester. What’s your point?!

  • http://www.nataliegulbis.com Richochet

    Kelli’s TurboTax gets done in minutes…

    Income from sales: $0.00
    Business incurred expenses: $39.99 web hosting

    Remember that when you cook dinner for your wife tonight, Kelli..and when you draw her bath…

    I mean..there’s no shame in you doing nothing while your wife works…….

    Ok, I lied.
    there is.

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    Yes Len, but more taxing on the employees. At one stretch, we went 16 months of 12 hour days, seven days a week, no days off except for a funeral for a family member. That is real life.

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    Vegas, figure income from investments, you are wrong.

  • http://blstb.msn.com/i/55/90A2853B6CFBCC2AFC987BB18B832.jpg vegas raider

    EBMUD has a AA bond rating. That has to be about the highest in the state.

    Hell the state GO’s are BBB these days, on the fringe of a junk rating.
