      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Olsonist: how's the CBO's track record with forward projections?


Too bad that doesn't answer the question.


Actually, it does. You just don't like the answer. Here's the 2013 update.




That doesn't seem right. I suspect because the CBO is continually adjusting and updating it's projections and only scores the final projection against actuals.


It would be like placing a bet on a football game and changing the point spread every time a team scores.


For example, Pelosi and Reid were very happy that the cost of the ACA came in at less than 1 Trillion dollars. Right now, I believe that the projection is approaching 3 Trillion.
