9 Willowed:What is upper middle class for everyone here? It is a

term people throw around but hard to define. $100k a year is poverty in

San Francisco but living pretty well in rural Kansas. It is really hard

to define.

That's why I said it's really a state-by-state thing. $150k really is barely scraping by in the bay area. I laugh when I see real estate prices in other states. And why it's interesting to see the people who get transferred out here in absolute shock at the prices. Of course, on the other hand you just aren't going to go from $200k/yr here to the same in Alabama or Tennessee.

You won't, and you won't need it. I just started a new job. I took a pay cut to do it. I don't care. Within a couple of months, I will be moving to a place that is much cheaper to live. When I compare the differences in taxation, cost of goods, energy, etc. etc. - what it takes to live - I will have ended up getting an effective raise even though my take-home pay declined.

I knew a guy, years ago, that was offered a transfer to San Francisco and he turned it down flat. He was living in AZ and, as he said, he lived well in AZ on his salary, but even the slight increase he was offered wouldn't cover the COL increase living in San Francisco.

My old company once offered me a different job. It would have required moving from Denver to Silicon Valley. As much as I don;t want to do that on general principles, I turned it down flat when they offered me an 8% bump in pay. Moving from moderate-high COL Denver to brutally high COL Silicon Valley (not to mention all of the things there that are detrimental to quality of life) for a bump that didn't even cover half of the difference was a non-starter.

Oh yeah, why I'm dying to get the fuck out of here. I'd be pretty well off by selling off the real estate, buy a place outright, and have enough to live on as a worse case scenerio. Cost is relative, you don't need to make half a mil a year if the house you live in costs $200k, and taxes are low. CA has so many GD little taxes and taxes on taxes it's incredible. I'm tired of living in a third world country and paying penthouse prices for it.

99 Once you've got your housing costs taken care of, it's not that expensive here in S.F. You just don't eat or drink at retail. No big deal if cost is an issue. There really was so much to do here (within 2 - 3 hours drive) all year round. Reno's 4-5 hours if you want to actually throw dice at the craps table (esp. if you bet wrong way -- that's when the fun starts).

Pretty sure he's had 5 kids by 3-4 different women in recent years, so the appeal is still there.

I suspect that he's taking these off-brand roles, including being the sociopath murderer in the HBO series, because with his age, he's no longer offered nor expected to be the cute rom-com dude. He seems to be enjoying this freedom to be the bad guy.

131 Speaking of reprobates, I only discovered yesterday that Peter Nygard had been arrested, on December 17.

So, to recap: Jean-Luc Brunel, the french Epstein, was arrested in france on December 16. Nygard, the Canadian Epstein, was arrested in Canada on the 17th.

These designations are not exaggerated. If anyone thinks Epstein was the only one in this business, they are sorely mistaken. Nygard is a big shot in the fashion industry, and has his own island in the Caribbean.

Brunel has a modeling agency, and basically operated out of france only, I think.

I'm a bit concerned that Nygard is likely to be extradited to the U.S., to face federal charges here. I could EASILY see this whole thing going away, in a Biden era.

This used to be considered a cheap place to live but no longer. Relatively it is cheap compared to S.F. or NYC. But a house under $300k no longer exists. Maybe a dump that needs $50k of renovations. Not that long ago a nice house was $250k.

For now. The 'Rona forced a lot of remote work and enterprises figured out that for a lot of job functions, this is okay. The technology is there to deal with it, and management is catching up on figuring out decentralized workforce.

But there is also the possibility - and perhaps even likelihood - that the problems with large-scale distributed work-from-home workforces aren't known yet and will manifest will time. As we have generally over-corrected (under force, but nonetheless) with 'Rona-related remote work, when those weaknesses become known it may well over-correct in the other direction.

If you are a remote worker (especially a recently-converted one) and you move to a cheaper area, there are two things to keep in mind:
1) Your company may cut your pay (my old firm did this)
2) Things may change again, and you need to be prepared to live the way you want on the locally prevailing salaries if push comes to shove

They're already going nuclear. To make sure the serfs and peons never ever dare to touch their shoes with grubby, dirt-stained hands. They're making a mistake, drunk with power.

It depends. Property taxes are highly local in most places, so it will vary by city and county. Sales taxes can become obscene, but not always. Where I am moving (Tennessee), there is no income tax and yes, sales taxes are high. Those sales taxes, though, are capped. The state gets its cut, and localities can also impose sales taxes but only so much. It usually ends up being about 9.5% or 10%. This is quite a bit, but if I compare it to where I live now, it isn't.

Take the Denver suburb of Littleton, CO. The state sales tax is 2.9%. Littleton's sales tax rate is 7.25%. That means shopping there costs you 10.15% - on top of the 4.63% state income tax (flat tax).

You really have to realize that government, most of business and most of life for that matter are really one big Potemkin Village, a fašade . Civilization is on cardboard thick. Government is only paper thick.
When you get right down to it, Congress is just a building with a bunch of folks in it who thing they run everything, but they really are just a building with a bunch of folks in it.
Their biggest fear is that too many will realize that it is all just one big Potemkin Village, and they are just mortals. The "riot" at the Capitol had the biggest threat that it would reveal that they are mortal beings.
I particular will point out "Cocaine Mitch" who snapped back the quickest to defend the institution before the people, even before the "riot".

Remote work for white collar jobs was already happening. Slowly but surely. The Rona just accelerated it by a decade. It is win win for all. Employers save money on real estate costs, employees save money in housing and commuting costs. Plus the invaluable time saved not being in a car or a subway for 2 hours every day.

I work with a team of about 25 people located all over the country in all 4 time zones. We have always been remote to each other. Only diff now is everyone is remote from home instead of remote from an office. With email, chat, Zoom, etc there is zero need to be in a building physically.

When my wife and I started looking for houses in this area, she thought that because we were not in the Bellevue, Seattle, Kirkland, Redmond area we could get a nice starter house for $250K or so. We were disabused of that idea pretty darn quick. We ended up paying 400K for a starter house.

248 As the daughter of Paul Sorvino, I would imagine that she wasn't expected to do casting couch stuff, especially for the independent productions she was in, getting meetings based on her father's name. I mean, he's not Brad Pitt, but he's a long established actor in the industry. That's something.

Yeah I wish he was the characters he played, I would love for him to have had Weinstein brought to an empty garage and tied to a chair for Paul and a few of his buddies to work over with baseball bats.

It would probably only take a couple hundred thousand to fix it up properly. That's under a million dollars for a house. That's totally affordable, right?

But now - tip-over point. Federal tax disaster that will pass (in the first 2 months, part of reconciliation) will put some of them around 50%+ tax bracket, when CA taxes added in. Near Scandinavian levels. Ridiculous.

He said it's of course been a steady trickle, for years. But now he's swamped with these kinds of situations.

He said he think CA's going to be in trouble, I reminded him that 10 years ago the legislative analyst (CA version of CBO) estimated that HALF of the state's deficit* was attributable to 5,000 households departing CA. A state at that time of 33M+, and *5K* tax returns going away caused HALF of the deficit.

GPUs are *very* good at processing blockchains. GPUs are processors but they are designed to do a huge amount of work in parallel (such as rendering millions of polygons to put graphics on a screen). They can be programmed for non-graphics work, and NVIDIA (a major graphics chip manufacturer) has embraced this by making their programming interfaces available for arbitrary workloads. This also really big in the AI space, for the same reasons that they're popular for blockchain computation. A good GPU will wildly outperform a good CPU for a variety of tasks.

Bitcon's problem - and it is not inherent to the blockchain concept - is that because it is finite, the reward (newly "minted" bitcoins) shrinks as computation power to compute changes to the blockchain increases, and they do so in inverse exponential functions. This is catastrophic, and it is why Bitcoin will ultimately fail.

I think there's as good a chance as not, that he's still alive, and the extent to which the cleanup CAN move forward is wholly dependent on how well they control the federal bureaucracy.

It's a trade-off. Moving a few million bucks in gold is riskier. The bulk of bitcoin traffic outside of currency speculators is people avoiding capital controls; it's not a buy and hold sort of currency. As a tool, think of it more like a cashier's check, but without the eyes of the bank and their government involved.

understand why you need a GPU for this, but that's what the Internet

As far as I'm aware, GPUs are no longer the hot thing for *coin mining, they've moved on to customized ASICs. The current shortage of GPUs is because nobody could get China to ship anything in quantity before December, and it was dicey even then.

He's been dangling the prospect of some of his sweet, sweet grift in front of OCrazyHo-TittyCaca ever since she allowed as how she would really, really like to have some of that money. Dumbass thinks there's some possibility that she might actually fuck him.

In reality, he's gonna wind up like the guy who gets shitfaced at a sleazy strip joint, then wakes up in an alley with no wallet and $10,000 put on his credit card.

I'm sure that OCrazyHo has a long and practiced history of feigning sexual interest in customers until the moment the tip money has actually changed hands. Those of us who are older than 19 years (or aren't brutally stupid, like THE Cuck Wilson) learn to spot waitresses like that early on.

It's worse than prostitution, really, as a prostitute actually provides the service for which she was contracted.

Joe I thought the opposite was true, that because the easy Bitcoins are gone, and the high cost of generating a new one, keeps the quantity constant. Unlike US deficit spending, which generates literally trillions of new dollars from thin air, that dilutes existing dollar value.
So the value of a Bitcoin goes up and down on demand, not flooding the market with new Bitcoins.
Now, the US dollar is backed by the US government, and ultimately, the US military.
Bitcoin value is only based on the belief that it will remain. But can't be easily diluted.

Precisely nowhere did the investigation go. Did not have high hopes for Barr because of his previous stint where he cleaned up the Feeb's sniper incident, the whole Boys Club Omaha issue in the late 80's and 90's, and helped with covering up the Inslaw steal. For example, Neil Bush is the counterpart of Hunter as the bagman for the Bush family. Go back and look up Silverado S&L scandal.
Basically, the working part of Feebs intel, countintel, etc. are in too deep with illegal searches, covering up asset's crimes such as Whitey Bulger's and others, and so on. The informant and undercover ops that go too far require those in the DOJ and other alphabet agencies to cover it up. Eventually, the whole institution is built with people who are either actively criminals or those covering up for them.

Go back and watch the Untouchables where Sean Connery tells Kevin Costner how the cow ate the cabbage in Chi town.

385 295 I am beginning to think that everyone who irrationally opposed MAGA and Trump were diddling children.

I've said it before, I'll say it again: I don't believe in Q, but I do believe the general concept that the elites love them some pre-pubescent ass. The fact that they've grossly overreacted to that particular claim is very telling.
===
It was Epstein's non-suicide that convinced me that Q & Infowars were 100% correct. He was a threat to a lot of people's not-so-secret shame and the scum who made $$ over providing the shame, and they snuffed him in broad daylight AND no one saw a goddamn thing. The crazy stuff isn't crazy if it's true. We are being ruled over by a high-class club whose degenerate morals come straight from I, Claudius. And the funny thing was, it wasn't so secret. The FBI had stalked Epstein and his procuress for over a decade. An ABC reporter had a story yanked. It was hidden in plain sight until Trump said "Get that perverted SOB."

386 I saw a movie yesterday, The Angel Wore Red, about a priest caught up in the Spanish Civil War trying to escape assassination. It begins by telling us that the reason the Church is being attacked is the Church didn't change with the times and is generally uncool and not with it. Then Franco's forces bomb civilians. Although they reluctantly admit that it is the commies who are trying to hunt down and kill the priest, they continually insist that it's all Franco's fault. In fairness, this is not a political movie. It's a romance about the fleeing priest, Dirk Bogarde, falling in love with a whore, Ava Gardner, and leaving the church.

389 356 RIP, the key word you used was 'betting'. Many of the smart moneyed folks have their fingers in a lot of pies to diversify risk plus it gives a way to pay for disreputable or illegal activities. Play around with bitcoin or other stuff if you wish--but it is no different than dabbling in financial derivatives--it is a second order proxy for real wealth. The major purpose is to speculate.

You will find a lot of the same people invested in govt bonds that don't make much but are considered relatively safe. Diversified portfolios are a way to maintain wealth as long as systematic failure does not happen (for example, civilization ends).

That's what they taught me in all my finance classes: govt bonds second only to cash in safety. And I do have US bonds in my portfolio, a small bit. But I marvel that we have any confidence in the safety of govt bonds now, given the wildly reckless debt and money printing of the past few decades.

It's a trade-off. Moving a few million bucks in gold is riskier.

432 Dragging this over from the last thread:
There is a reported "Million Militia March" on the 19th. Which will have a hundred guys show up with about 75% being law enforcement of one stripe or another, eyeing each other suspiciously and trying to gin up conspiracies to commit violence without realizing that they are talking to another LEO.

I saw this mentioned over the weekend at TheDonald win, and they linked the posters being circulated about it, and actually did a little dissection of the iconography employed in the making of the posters.

Opinion is that the march and the posters are the work of antifa, and it's a trap. The posters themselves are very "antifa/socialist/communist" looking, down to the red & yellow color scheme and the entire vibe of the things.

Yell at me all you want, but I would not put it past our communist enemies to set up some patriots for slaughter.

I have a buddy who retired in his late 30's off bitcoin. Back in late 17/18 when the huge spike happened, he sold all of it (or a huge chunk, I don't remember) and walked away with around 7 mil after taxes. He was putting money into it way back in the early years, so he must have bought a fair amount back when it was really cheap.
