A player's rating indicates his percentile rank in CAPS. Teacherman1 is outperforming < 20% of all CAPS players. A player's score is the total percentage return of all his picks subtracting out the S&P. A player's accuracy is how often that player has made correct predictions.

To calculate a player's rating, we take 2/3 of his score percentile and 1/3 of his accuracy percentile. For further information, read the Player Ratings section of the Help page.

Average Pick Score is a player's total score divided by the total number of picks (active and closed). It represents the player's average return after subtracting out the market's performance.

Average Pick Rating is the average stock rating of a player's total picks. Underperform picks are flip-flopped, so a underperform call on a one-star stock is treated like an outperform call on a five-star stock. This rating reflects how closely your picks are aligned with CAPS ratings.

Federal Gasoline Tax to Pay for Infrastructure?

April 28, 2017 – Comments (2)

Thought I would throw this out for discussion if anyone is interested in doing so.

It is pretty obvious the U.S. is in dire need of highway and bridge repair and upgrades, and to do these things should create a lot of jobs, but how do we pay for it in the midst of tax cut discussions, without adding "tons" of debt to the $19 Billion or so that we already have.

I would favor putting a "special" federal tax on gasoline, since users of gasoline are the ones who would benefit from it.

Of course there are businesses that would have increased costs as a result, suck as trucking companies, and others with large fleets of needed vehicles, but there are alternatives they could use, such as LNG, Electricity, etc., and might be an inventive for them to make the switch, which could be a "boon" for the overall environment.

The reason for the "special" designation in front of the words federal tax, is that I think it should be done in a way that the revenue could only be used for highway and bridge repair, and could not be "scooped" into the general fund where it would soon be "frittered" away on "pet" projects.

I also think it should be for a specific period of time, with a fixed, certain, complete ending.

It could be treated like "revenue" bonds, which I am sure would be attractive to many domestic and foreign investors, with strict controls and a limited life.

These are just some random thoughts that have been "walking across my mind", and I welcome the comments of others, if anyone has any thoughts on the subject.

JMO and worth exactly what I am charging for it.   [more]
