Tonight's ONT Is Blocking The Suez Canal

G'day mate! Welcome to the Thursday ONT!

Stuck In The Middle With You

So, has anybody noticed that 13% of the world's trade has ground to a halt? Mega container ship hard aground in Suez Canal. The ship is the ULCV Ever Given, bound for Rotterdam from China. I'm given to understand that it and its sister ships are the largest vessels in the world. You can track the ship here, what's interesting is to scroll out and look at just how many ships are stuck waiting for the canal to clear. 13% of the world's trade goes through the Suez Canal, and now....it can't. I even read one report that some ships have headed for the Horn of Africa rather than waiting. This whole thing is a global disaster (the report that the ship was captained by the first female Arab captain is false, BTW), and the international community has responded promptly...by making memes.

Is this an accident, or a fiendishly clever way to put pressure on Europe's economy? I don't know. I also don't know what to make of this: Mega cargo ship drew giant penis in Red Sea before lodging itself in Suez Canal. On guy on another message board claimed to be a merchant mariner and said drawing dicks when your ship is forced to keep station for a while is not uncommon, it's amusing in a 13 year old boy sort of way, but I have no idea if that's true or not.

Speaking Of Shipping, Look At This Hot Mess

Reddit Is A Garbage Forum


Apparently, one of their moderators is a trans guy whose father was convicted of some truly heinous crimes-torture and sexual abuse of a 10 year old. His son, Aimee (nee Ashton) was a politician in the Green Party of the UK, and after they threw him out of the party Reddit hired him as a moderator where he is banning entire subreddits who even mention his father's crimes, while Reddit itself is trying to hide the fact that they hired Aimee. I'm not going to provide any links because frankly all of the people involved are fucking disgusting, but they're out there if you want to look for yourself.

21 hellllo, ONT. I was talking about the reddit drama earlier.

It's worse then you think -- the dude/chick is married (in a throuple, obviously) to a dude who writes pedophile erotica, but would never act on his attraction to minors (according to him/her), and the dude/chicks old man raped a 10 year old while dressed as a baby (including a diaper.)

And after Reddit hired the dude/chick at $80k USD a year (after all of the scandals), Reddit decided to ban anyone who mentioned the dude/chicks name, until almost all of the most popular subreddits went private, and went to the media, basically shutting down the site. Then they fired the dude/chick, and issued a non-apology. Reddit is pretty up in arms about it.

Could be a red pill moment, we shall see.

31 Evening!
I took my wife to downtown Chicago today for some tests by a specialist.. back again tomorrow..
That actually went very smoothly! There was a valet company a few doors down who took and retrieved the car at not too terribly steep a price - $22 bucks, but it was a bargain to be able to stay with her and get her into the clinic.. traffic is crazy down there near Northwestern Hospital.
Anyway.. the fun happened on the way home.. we ordered some takeout to pick up in our town.. that timed perfectly.. but when I was trying to pull out of the parking lot, some woman was trying to back into a parking place behind me.. it was EXACTLY like the Evergreen meme above! Back and forth! in and out.. too funny!

The move is to never talk about anything controversial, get out of the restaurant quickly, change venues to your "home turf," and THEN start dropping truth bombs and see how she reacts. Or not. Depends on if youre looking for a lady for the night or a lady for a while, ya know.

It's not even that the duck/chick was a moderator (which is a volunteer position, similar to a cob), but he/she was a hired admin (who far outranks a simple moderator) and put his/her degenerate friends/lovers / husbands in charge of many subs, including basically all of the LGBT subs, including the ones aimed at teens.

55 The Japanese owned, Taiwanese operated Panama flagged ship events all goes in my "Lost My Job Today" file.

Questions I have are, where was the anchor watch? And loss of steering usually means a power failure. No after steering watch?

The entire company is on the hook for every available tug going to work. The funniest thing was a bucket excavator at the bow, getting sand away. It was dwarfed by the size of that ship.

This is when Dutch salvage companies earn big bucks.

Posted by: davidt at March 25, 2021 10:01 PM (DFhj3)

I've seen this elsewhere, and the question is what do the Texans have to gain by making the guy's name mud? At 14 suits the League is going to be forced to sit him for a bit or lose the ability to sit any player for accusations in the future, and a long drawn out headache isn't going to make him a better QB in the long run for the Texans.
Now some fan could be behind it, but with nothing to gain the Texans only benefit it they did this after trading the malcontent, but now they can't even do that as they won't get anything for him and he will find a mass of people against him on any team he'd go to, cause #BelieveAllWomen.
The simpler answer is he is full of bad decisions, and when he started to show up in more headlines some of those decisions circled back on him.
That said, I've no idea if he did what he is accused of but I do know (well, saw the numbers not any games) that what he didn't do was lead his team to even a break-even record, so not sure why people are thinking he is Tom Brady Part 2.

The Europeans, like us, rely on cheaply made goods from third world countries, which we no longer can make on our own, and barely have any stockpiled in our countries. When shipping stops, even briefly, it affects the entire supply chain of all kinds of basic stuff in the 1st world. We saw this with covid, and we will see it again with a ship stuck on a sandbar in Egypt. We (and the rest of the developed world), have ever little actual ... stuff ... in our warehouses, nor do we have the manufacturing ability to easily make it ourselves.

Food, not so much. Europe + the Americas is pretty self sufficient for the staples. But most of our cheap consumer goods both here and in Europe come from Asia.

So we'll see some weird shortages if the canal is not opened within a day or two. Including "exotic" things like coffee.

I mean, the ships can make it to the US and Europe by going around Africa, it just throws off the whole system to add that much time and fuel to the journey.

115 My canal experience is that I transited the Panama Canal in a 40-ft ketch. We were stuffed into a lock on the Caribbean side behind a cargo ship whose stern towered over us.

When the lock was suddenly filled with water it was near chaos, it was all we could do to keep the boat from smashing into the walls of the lock.

It was pretty awesome. To bad the Suez Canal doesn't have any locks.

161 The Deshawn Watson contretempts is also interesting because of a very peculiar thing that nobody is talking about:

The plethora of lawsuits filed against him are an obviously well-coordinated Op by a single attorney to destroy him completely. Nice work, attorney! But the Dumbass attorney missed his chance to really do damage because last year Watson already signed his yuge $111M contract extension after playing out 3 years of his 4 year rookie contract.

I'm betting there will be an allegation that the attorney tried to extort a yuge private settlement when Watson signed that extension, and Watson told him to pound sand. Hence all the lawsuits now, rather than when they could have destroyed his chance of signing that extension last September. The attorney's strategy and timing make no sense otherwise.

My sister, a teacher har har, told me that she works very hard, and sent me a video of a man singing and playing piano, on the topic of Betsy Devos is a meany-head.

Had I deemed to dignify the response, I would have told her that unhappy, incurious and dull are the normal results of sending a normal boy to a normal public school.

184 Fun (?) Fact: The developer/builder of the Suez Canal, a Frenchman named Ferdinand de Lesseps, tried to build a canal across Panama, the digging starting in 1882. He failed. The company formed for the work went bankrupt and the engineering and financial failures resulted in a scandal in France.

In 1904 the US bought the land and other assets of the bankrupt company and started anew.

196 161 The Deshawn Watson contretempts is also interesting because of a very peculiar thing that nobody is talking about:

The plethora of lawsuits filed against him are an obviously well-coordinated Op by a single attorney to destroy him completely. Nice work, attorney! But the Dumbass attorney missed his chance to really do damage because last year Watson already signed his yuge $111M contract extension after playing out 3 years of his 4 year rookie contract.

I'm betting there will be an allegation that the attorney tried to extort a yuge private settlement when Watson signed that extension, and Watson told him to pound sand. Hence all the lawsuits now, rather than when they could have destroyed his chance of signing that extension last September. The attorney's strategy and timing make no sense otherwise.

Wondering how the heck he spent time in Poland or Ukraine (was that it?) when he was shot down near Bremen. Woulda thunk he'd just go to a Luftstalag and that would be it. Maybe labor details to the east?

Reminds me of another amazing story, different, US POW held in the east, liberated by the Red Army, joins them and fights with an armored unit. Becomes only American with medals from both the US and USSR for ground combat duty (Joseph Bayerle).

Soviets did award their highest decoration (Order of Victory) to Eisenhower and Montgomery (also, the kind of Romania), which sort of stands as a lone classy and civilized act by that country under Stalin's evil rule.

Farewell and Godspeed Jessica Walter. If Hollywood had any decency or sense, they would build a monument to her and name things after her now, but I doubt they'll make much of it.

She was in everything. Everything. I was looking at her career and work and she had to be the hardest working person in show business. Her first role was in 1951, 10 yrs old. Then in 1960, at 19, she started and was in all the major shows since then, every year, for 60 years until she died this morning. Her last credit is 2021.

Leslie Nielsen was always a cut-up. His specialty was whoopee cushions and fart jokes. And then he was able to become his true self as Frank Drebin, and the rest is history.

Now, I can't watch any of his serious roles without laughing, because I see Frank Drebin. Every statement he makes can be interpreted as Drebin lunacy.

He talked about that during an interview, and said here's how I do a straight line. He then utters some line.

Now, here's I do comedy. He utters the same line in the exact same manner.

When the B25 hit the Empire State building they put an injured woman in a elevator car. The car cables had been damaged and then snapped sending her down 70+ stories. She lived. Some think the combination of the cables acting as spring below the car and the car compressing the air on the descent cushioned the landing.

Jessica Walter starred with The Shat in a '65 series, "For the People" as his wife. Shat was a young assistant DA who was passionate and getting in trouble by shaking everything up. Sort of like Quincy.

She also starred in the '66 movie "Grand Prix" with James Garner.

Again, she was in everything, and co-starred with anybody who was anybody.

She was in everything. Everything. I was looking at her career and work and she had to be the hardest working person in show business. Her first role was in 1951, 10 yrs old. Then in 1960, at 19, she started and was in all the major shows since then, every year, for 60 years until she died this morning. Her last credit is 2021.

If you watch MeTV, you'll see in her everything -- all the shows just about. With MeTV and the other classic show stations, not a day will go buy without Jessica Walter showing up somewhere, often two times.

322 But the Dumbass attorney missed his chance to really do damage because last year Watson already signed his yuge $111M contract extension after playing out 3 years of his 4 year rookie contract.

I'm betting there will be an allegation that the attorney tried to extort a yuge private settlement when Watson signed that extension, and Watson told him to pound sand. Hence all the lawsuits now, rather than when they could have destroyed his chance of signing that extension last September. The attorney's strategy and timing make no sense otherwise.

324 Just checking on ammoseek.com, primer situation has dramatically improved. Or however you measure the difference between "none", and some - at exorbitant prices.

Best price on SPP - $110/1K (but you gotta buy 10,000 to get that price .... actually I think that stuff will go fast, easy to "need" 10K primers for the longer run, also easy to get 3 or 4 reloading pals to take a few thousand each).

LPP - $189/1K.

General price for both, pre-panic = $30/1K (and one can do a bit better, sometimes).

I didn't even specify type of primer, just searched for all kinds. Until today, that kind of search had yielded 0 primers apart from percussion caps for black powder.

The terlets here in the new house are low flow (they have to be to pass code). However they are the type with the 3.5 gallon tank, and the weighted flapper valve. All you have to do is just hold the handle down and it will empty the entire tank.

I let it do the 1.5g flush for "non solid" loads, and do the full for "solid laden" loads.

The only problem is the bowl washdown in no good. In order to get a good flush with just 1.5 gal, they have to direct the flow down to the siphon jet at the bottom and you get very little bowl washdown.

With high flow terlets, more water could be directed down the sides for washdown.

396 Wouldn't you want to sue *after* he gets money? Then you get both the money and you ruin his career.

"there will be an allegation that the attorney tried to extort a yuge private settlement"
Isn't that the attorney's job in this case? Or is any attempt at a private settlement extortion?

Posted by: Chuck

It's extortion of the allegations are false. I'm assuming facts not yet in evidence.

Suing him after he signs a huge contract extension just means he has a ton of money to pay lawyers to defend him and he has no incentive to settle because he's already rich. Going after him privately just before he signs the fat extension after his rookie contract you're a lot more likely to get him to throw you some easy money.

The attorney now has 14 lawsuits he has to litigate on a contingency basis against a Guy who has millions to pay to hourly defense lawyers, and absolutely no chance now that this is public that Watson will be willing to settle without a lengthy battle (I.e., Plaintiffs' attorney is going to spend 3 years litigating before he sees a dime). I could be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time.

513 Cicero it didn't even meet personal standards at the time. Only used during the warm-up/unopposed drill parts of practice. And once when there was a snowstorm and only 5-6 guys made it to the rink, so we did a 3-3 thing. Which resulted in a freakish accident of a guy's stick being knocked up and hitting me just above the eye, square on the orbit, didn't really hurt but left a nice gash. Rink manager was an expert with butterfly bandages, so "taped it up and played".

And stopped by GW hospital on the way home, ER, just to see if they thought it needed stitches. A very hot blonde resident comes out to take a look, says yeah, you need stitches. I said "why?". She stumbled a bit, then something about a scar. "It's right under the eyebrow" I responded (not Brezhnevian, but my eyebrows are, uh, robust). She looked perturbed (and even hotter).

I came *this* close to saying "well if you're the one who's gonna do it, then I'll get stitches", but stopped. She seemed to think I was hitting on her, and also rejecting her medical advice, and she was right.

The system tried to reset in '08. All that bad debt had piled up, and the system was realizing the debt was bad, worthless, and was going to reset. A deflationary depression would've resulted. Maybe a 10 to 20% drop in GDP. It would've been rough. Many people wiped out.

That wiping out would've just been a recognition of reality. Every debt is someone's else asset one way or the other, and someone has to eat it.

Governments and central banks set out to prevent that reality from being recognized, and "save the system", to continue the fiction that all that bad debt was still good. They succeeded. Well, for a time, kicking a big can down the road.

What they did was effectively transfer the bad debt over to the goverment and central bank balance sheets. This was done all over the world.

What they have done is make the inevitable reckoning and crash far worse than it would've been. The more the kick it down the road, the worse the final reset becomes.

There is a whole genre of books about exploitation of immigrants by telling them lies to get them to move and reduce labor costs on the other end. The Grapes of Wrath, The Jungle, and many others about exploitation.

How come no one is using this angle. Micheal Yon has some posts up and it seems most of the immigrants are pretty clueless about the reality of their situation. Surely most dems feel that illegals are abused in the US and face horrible hardships.

So now the exploiters are dem politicians, and dem businesses, and globalists, that makes it acceptable?

I don't know what to tell anybody, and wouldn't presume to. But I can say this. During a depression or a reset, shit-hit-the-fan times, economic collapse, what you want is real stuff. Real physical stuff. You do not want paper, or know a lot of it is electronic, you don't really have any paper that says you have this amount of dollars saved up.

Paper is worthless in a collapse. By real stuff, I mean land, house and home, tools, equipment, and skills. And precious metals like lead and brass. I'm meh on gold and silver shit -- lead and brass are the best precious metals in a collapse.

I remember reading a good piece on what would've happened had we just let that reset happen in '08. That is, said ok, we're not gonna try to save this bad debt, we're gonna let it crash and clear all the deadwood.

20% hit to GDP. A lot of people would've taken a big "haircut" on their assets. 401Ks and everything else.

It would all be over now, and with all the bad debt and deadwood flushed out, we'd be humming along now.

And the article made some interesting points. During that 20% hit to GDP deflationary depresson, no one would've had to starve, really. The federal govt could've kept that from happening, easily. "Three hots and a cot" (and NOTHING more) for anyone starving in the streets. They could've set up tent cities in old military bases and shit like that. A very austere existence, but no one would've starved.

And guess what, to do that would've required only a fraction of the cost and new debt as they incurred bailing everything out and saving the system.

593 I'm extremely skeptical that doing the right thing in 2008 would have resulted in a 20% hit to GDP.

At the very time that Bush was persuaded by his catastrophically bad Treasury Sec. to adopt the worst parts of the response, non-financial commercial paper flows were ..... normal.

Sections of finance and real estate/construction would have taken a big hit - but a temporary one.

* note: the severity and duration of the hit would have been much worse if one still has Obama winning, as his policies were a lead blanket on the economy

609 >> I'm extremely skeptical that doing the right thing in 2008 would have resulted in a 20% hit to GDP.

That figured was calculated from "what would've happened" analyses, and it was cumulative, the total hit to GDP from the peak to the trough. Over several years, IOW.

In the Great Depression, that figure was about 25 to 30%. The greatest annual drop was 12% in 1932, IIRC. From '29 to '33, US GDP dropped about 25%+.

It varies by how you calculate it. They argue about the various methods.

All of those 'toxic assets' are still out there. They did not do shit to stop that.

They used all that money to consolidate the banking industry... the very people who had created the problem in the first place. It was a crises the big banks used, to consolidate their hold over the Fed Res Bank (which chooses board members by how much stock you have in the Fed Res bank, ie how big you are).

Letting the system reset in '08 would've resulted in a Great Depression size event, of that I have no doubt.

The forthcoming reckoning and there will be one, is going to make that look like a mild recession because of the reckless actions taken by our elites.

They engaged on those most destructive and disastrous monetary/fiscal "experiment" in the history of the world.

After this is all said and done, our current leadership is going to the most reviled bunch in history.

647 I bought two sheets of 5/8" plywood today, at $53 per sheet. And a couple of 1X2's. The pile of them was picked over, and there was almost nothing but rejects. Shit that was half bark, or split down the middle. I blame the mill for that, and secondarily, the retailer. The mill should do a better job of keeping rejects out of the lifts, and the retailers should probably QC sample lifts of lumber before accepting it.

And maybe they could pro-rate the reject lumber and discount it. If I only need 4 feet of good 1X2 for a particular project, I'd happily take a bad one if it had 4 good contiguous feet in it, if I could get it for half price.

Nope, the whole thing was based on how much of many mortgages would default, based on how much they invested in said tranches of mortgages.

30- 89% delinquent is about 3% of total mortgages. And most of those after bankruptcy would have devolved to the banks, which would have NOT engendered a loss.

Whole thing was crap. Laws already in place would have protected banks EXCEPT THEY had lost control of who owned what properties.

Heh. Well, say an eight foot 1X2 sells for $1.77, which is what's printed on my receipt from Home Depot. For that price, I had damn well better be getting eight feet of useable lumber. Certainly no splits. Maybe a corner here and there incomplete because milled too close to the outside of the log, but not missing a corner for more than a foot ot so. And no rot or punk. If I pull a piece from the pile that meets my criteria for half its length, why shouldn't I get it for half price? The remainder is just firewood.

Suffice it to say, I strongly disagree with this. The system was collapsing, and the effort to deny reality and prop it up was the greatest in history. I was trying to find something to succinctly illustrate the magnitude of the crash that would've occurred. Fed Z.1, household net worth (the amount of dollars your household's assets are valued out) section will illustrate that. We go to FRED:

https://fred.stlouisfed.org/
series/TNWBSHNO

Now, that is the nominal net worth of households (plus non-profits, don't ask why). This includes things like the paper value of their houses and property.

You see that big drop off in '08? Click on edit, choose annual frequency and percent change.

You will see that 2008 was the biggest crash in that since the series began in 1946.

Since the series began in '46, household net worth had done nothing but increase, from a range of 2 - 14% per year. In 2008, that decreased by 7.4% from 2007. That is, everyone net worth dropped by 7.4%. In 2009, that value dropped yet again by 5.9%.

We're talking a roughly 12% cummulative drop in total household net worth.

And you're telling me that was a nothing-burger? And had the extraordinary, unprecedented action taken by the Fed and Uncle, and their counterparts the world over was some sort of plot by the banks to avoid a 1% loss? And without that plot, there wouldn't have been more than 12% loss in household net value.

Nope, had they not taken that action, household net worth would've dropped by a hell of a lot more than a mere 12%. Wiped out is the word.

Deflationary depression. Bad, bad, bad. But far better than what awaits now.

721 >> FRED graph yesterday that showed the velocity of money is the slowest

Yes, velocity of money has tanked. It's why the basic 6x increase in base money since '08 has not done anything. IIRC, I remember the best "stock of money" measure to use to calculate velocity was MZM, money of zero maturity. Inexplicably, the FED is discontinuing the MZM data series. You've got M0, M1, and M2. And then MZM. MZM was the best measure of "money available" to be spent/used.

While the notion of velocity of money is an important concept to appreciate, I actually have a distaste for it. Let me explain. Velocity is something that can't be measured directly. There is nothing you can do to go out and measure aggregate velocity of money.

One can only calculate it, based on some measure of the money stock (and, again IIRC, the MZM notion of money stock was the best one to get an accurate measure of velocity).

The way I like to think, just use the product MV, monetary momentum. Consider the basic "equation of exchange". MV = PQ. Money times velocity equal aggregate price level times "real goods/services exchanged" (an equation of state, from which no casual relationships are predicted are derived -- like the Ideal Gas Law).

A little calculus and you show the differential change in price level is thus:

dP/P = d(MV)/MV - dQ/Q

Note I leave MV, monetary momentum as one quantity, not breaking it up into money stock and velocity.

And from that, we have Uncle Milton Friedman's famous dictum, that inflation is too much money chasing too few goods, and that inflation is everywhere and always a monetary phenomenon.

We have inflation when the rate of change of monetary momentum is greater than the rate of change of real goods/services being exchanged.

We have deflation when monetary momentum's rate of change is less than the real goods.

Rather than worry with money stock (money) and velocity (chasing), we just lump them together as momentum, money-chasing. A given money-chasing could be smaller amount of money moving faster, or a greater amount of money moving slower, but the product is the same.

749 Before I crash, some history of inflation, monetary momentum, and Milton Friedman.

The Keynesians used to believe in something called the "Phillips Curve" which was a believed relation between inflation and employment and GDP (output). They believed that full employment and economic growth required inflation. If inflation was low or zero, then you would have high unemployment and low or contracting GDP.

Milton Friedman, leading a school that became known as the Monetarists, said that was all bullshit. Inflation was merely a monetary thing (as I mentioned above) and you could have full employment and high GDP growth with no inflation.

The 70s proved the Phillips Curve wrong. High inflation and high unemployment and low growth. This was "stagflation".

Paul Volcker believed the Monetarists. The previous Fed heds did not. So he said, all right, I'm gonna kill inflation. I'm gonna tighten the hell out of the money supply, and cause interest rates to shoot the moon.

Now, while the monetarists held there was no real causal relationship between inflation and employment/growth, there would be short term changes and shocks caused by tightening.

To stop inflation, per monetarism, you wanted to slow the increase of monetary momentum. Doing that was going to cause a *temporary* increase in unemployment and decrease in GDP. Short term pain, but it would stabilize later.

And that's what happened. Volcker's ~20% rates caused a hell of a recession around '80 and continued to '82 or so. But Volcker (and Reagan) stayed the course.

And the monetarists were proven right (on this). Inflation was killed and the economy recovered and went gangbusters.

Indeed. All around. Right here, nothing but some rain, a little wind and thunderbooming all around. But there were some tornadoes in Spartanburg and down below us in Laurens. The weather guys were going crazy about "Rotation signatures!".

There may be something still brewing, but it's supposed to be all over by morning. It's quiet out now.

757 749 ...The Keynesians used to believe in something called the "Phillips Curve" which was a believed relation between inflation and employment and GDP (output). They believed that full employment and economic growth required inflation. If inflation was low or zero, then you would have high unemployment and low or contracting GDP.

Keynes was gay, and without issue. He didn't believe in the future, only the here and now. This warped his entire view.

It's a replay of Aesop's Fable about the Ant And The Grasshopper, Keynes being the grasshopper.

Well, if you remember in the before times there was an idea that you could change hearts and minds by extending a hand in friendship to people who hate you. The hate arose out of ignorance and if you merely showed them kindness, then it would open their eyes. In a way, it is trying to train people like dogs (ignoring the part about having to be FIRM and kind- not just kind.)

Problem is, people are not dogs. Some would be quite happy to shank you while you are rescuing them from a burning building if they do not like you.

In the first instance, there is no humanitarian crisis in existence, this is a simple case of economic migration. And second, while this country's reservoir of compassion is immense, I fail to see how our humanity is going to be served over the long haul by failing to protect the countries borders and citizens. These people in their protective bubbles are like the citizens in Rome proper who never imagined the Visogoths would arrive at the doorstep one day.

847 Conservatives are such idiots sometimes.

If you thought Biden wasn't going to be fine at the press conference, well, that was just hope. All logic pointed to scripted questions, softballs, and Biden reading pre determined answers.

848 The media covering for him does not mean he was fine. Everyone knew it was going to be completely scripted. And everyone knew the media would cover for him. We're not being hopeful. We're playing the waiting game and wondering whether the final break will happen on live on tv or behind the scenes.

851 More than a few people have wound up with free real estate by challenging the lender to prove in court that they did, in fact, hold a mortgage on the property.

I got out of a huge medical bill after the hospital was bought out by another system and the new system sent me to collections rather than honor the payment arrangement. I asked them to prove I owed the debt, and the amount they were requesting was the actual amount I owed. They couldn't and wrote off the debt.

Under the bed she found, evenly spaced, a small pile of acorns, a couple cicadas, and a mole. Some cat significance, maybe trying to contact the cat mother ship, who knows?

853 Yeah who exactly is shocked that the media covered for Biden? The question is always going to be if he goes so unhinged that they can't hide it.

And that ABC apparently didn't air any clips of the press conference and instead had their hack just "summarize" what Biden said during it is very telling.

856 And they refuse to "mark to market" or whatever.

Leftists point out how housing is "unaffordable", and they have a point. But the system is setup to never allow a worthless asset to reach its true value. Because it is leveraged 50 times over. So they can't sell it for what it is worth, and prudent folks who saved cash can't buy.

Price controls don't work. At least not yet. And not for lack of trying and millions killed and untold misery.

-----------------
I don't disagree. My point is that there won't be a hail mary situation where Biden finally lets everyone see what an idiot he is.

Trump was the only person that could destroy Trump, although the left tried mighty hard everyday.

But Biden can't destroy Biden. Only the right can do it.

You seem to think this could slightly have an impact on worldwide just-in-time economies like those in the US.

I don't really have an opinion one way or the other, but I bet a local nobody boat driver makes less than the equivalent of America's minimum wage. It would be pretty easy for some Great Reset nazi sympathizer to pay a few bucks out of his billions to make it happen.

Back in the lat 70's-early 80's, one could transit the canal, and see remnants of blowed up buildings, and 'stuff' in the desert from the earlier wars.
