Giordano returns to Raiders

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, April 16th, 2012 at 9:11 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders announced the signing of unrestricted free agent safety Matt Giordano Monday, who led the team with five interceptions and is coming off the best season of his career in Oakland.

Giordano’s interceptions accounted for 130 yards in returns, and he also had 70 tackles and his first career sack after playing from 2005 through 2008 with Indianapolis, five games in 2009 with Green Bay and nine games in 2010 with New Orleans.

Aside from Giordano’s production last season with Oakland, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie was with the Packers’ personnel department in 2009 and head coach Dennis Allen was the defensive backs coach in New Orleans for the nine games Giordano played there in 2010.

A Cal product, Giordano started nine games as starting free safety Michael Huff struggled with injuries.

    Even tho Reggie McK has upgraded the facilities with the latest technologies, I’m glad to see he is keeping with the Al Davis tradition of putting together a good ball club. For some who don’t realize this, Al Davis put good clubs on the field, he just had a few meatballs who wrecked it for everyone else. Keep up the good work Reggie, Amy and Mark.

    Understanding Supply-Side Economics
    May 14 2010 | Filed Under » Economics, Entrepreneur

    Supply-side economics is better known to some as “Reaganomics”, or the “trickle-down” policy espoused by former U.S. president Ronald Reagan. He popularized the controversial idea that greater tax cuts for investors and entrepreneurs provide incentives to save and invest and produce economic benefits that trickle down into the overall economy. In this article, we summarize the basic theory behind supply-side economics.

    Like most economic theories, supply-side economics tries to explain both macroeconomic phenomena and – based on these explanations – to offer policy prescriptions for stable economic growth. In general, supply-side theory has three pillars: tax policy, regulatory policy and monetary policy.

    However, the single idea behind all three pillars is that production (i.e. the “supply” of goods and services) is the most important determinant of economic growth. The supply-side theory is typically held in stark contrast to Keynesian theory, which, among other facets, includes the idea that demand can falter, so if lagging consumer demand drags the economy into recession, the government should intervene with fiscal and monetary stimuli.

    Keynesian theory means government primes the pump to jump start consumer demand. Supply side economics theory argues that more money in the hands of the affluent/business owners will lead to job creation, hence “trickling down” to those who would presumably get the jobs.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Ah, how cute! KK knows how to copy n paste things from the internet. That’s progress. Soon he’ll be on solid food and struggling to hoist himself on his own two legs.

    Of course KK fails to mention the one thing Keynes and Reagan had in common.

    And just what pray tell is that Raidernationdave?

    Debt MF’er.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    The Treasury has to sell “bonds” to dumb-asses like KK so it can then borrow a whopping 90% of the actual assets they sell.

    Anything resembling “money” in the system Raidernationdave. Nope. Just air.

  • Raidernationdave

    Oh, and Kell, if you can’t find any actual “books” that explain this charade to you in depth – provided you can read more than an occasional sentence scribbled on the bathroom wall at your local Denny’s – there’s always…..Google MF’er!

    What a beyotch!

  • Raidernationdave

    Hey Kell I wanted to axe you another questions homeslice.

    When those five guys that pulled a train on your mom “so she’s can pay the rents mo’ney” for $20 bucks each who’s “debt” is “yo mama” in possession of?

  • Raidernationdave

    There is an old Roman maxim that says, “He who leaves the battlefield first loses.”

    KK I guess that means you’re a loser. STFU beyotch! Served and owned!
