The Morning Report - 6/14/21

upchuckchuck.jpg

Good morning kids. Start of a new week but it's still the same old story. On the heels of Veep Throat Harris' disastrous "fact-finding mission" to Mexico and Guatemala, where most of America saw a woman, whose entire career is based solely on her skill in tonsil hockey and the D after her name, so out of her depth and arrogant that even the propagandists charged with protecting her couldn't spin it, we had a geriatric mental patient supposedly the leader of the free world shambling about the G-7, with our allies barely able to suppress howls of laughter as he spouted out gaffe after gaffe. I guess "Doctor" Shill Biden didn't bone up enough whilst in the hot seat on Air Force One, but have no fear; she'll have the opportunity to redeem herself when she, I mean her husband, goes one-on-one with Vladimir Putin. Yes, that Vladimir Putin; the one Biden referred to last March as a "killer" and who was "going to pay a price." Maybe by "pay a price" he meant 10 million in rubles for "the big guy."

I'd be laughing right along with AMLO and the G-7 attendees were it not for the fact that our economy, our sovereignty, our safety and security, and our rights have been so thoroughly trashed like never before. And it's only been five months. Lest we forget, it was an axis of evil comprised of Big Brother Tech, our intelligence services and the Democrat Party establishment that sabotaged the 2020 election and installed these two dangerous, inept boobs as president and vice president. Of course with the help of many millions of legitimately cast ballots for them. The question is, of course, how many of those votes really were legitimate? A big story that has been percolating these last few months has been the election audits in Arizona and in Georgia, two of the six states where after 10:00PM on election night the vote counts were stopped, observers ejected and pallets of ballots trucked in. Now, a number of other states want to audit their votes as well and the reaction from the Left, as you can imagine, has been the Pris-shot-by-Deckard paroxysm, only with more limb-flailing. The reason for that is obvious; ever since that night the spin has been that Biden not only won fair and square, but that it was a mandate. In fact, to even question the results now gets you labeled as a dangerous terrorist, insurrectionist and white supremacist by the DoD, and perhaps puts you in line for a less than honorable discharge.

On April 9, 2021, Secretary Austin issued a memorandum announcing the establishment of the Countering Extremism Working Group (CEWG) to spearhead the military's witch-hunt to locate and stamp out "extremism" in its ranks.

To lead the CEWG, Austin appointed as his senior adviser on Human Capital and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, a black American named Bishop Garrison, who has made no secret of his profound contempt for former President Trump and the scores of millions of people who voted for him. In July 2019, for example, Garrison said in a tweet: "Support for him [Trump], a racist, is support for ALL his beliefs. He's dragging a lot of bad actors (misogynist, extremists, other racists) out into the light, normalizing their actions. If you support the President, you support that." "There is no room for nuance with this," Garrison added. "There is no more 'but I'm not like that' talk." This is the man in charge of purifying our military...

...Austin's remarks about extremists in our midst were a clear reference to the January 6 protest at the Capitol, which Democrats denounced as an "armed insurrection" even though there were no arms found, and therefore no insurrection. Under pressure from Black Lives Matter radicals, the incident was also denounced absurdly as a "white supremacist coup." The incident itself was, in fact, far more "peaceful" than the more than 600 riots conducted by Democrat supporters and encouraged by Democrat mayors over the summer of 2020.

In fact, the only person killed on January 6 was an unarmed Trump supporter, a 14-year air force veteran named Ashli Babbitt who was murdered by a Capitol police officer. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi jailed the Hispanic reporter who videoed the murder, revealing that Babbitt was standing by herself and menacing no one. The journalist was charged with the crime of appearing at the event. Pelosi has concealed the identity of the officer. Attorney General Merrick Garland, revealing himself as a partisan extremist, called the whole event "the most dangerous threat to our democracy," and refused to charge the officer who shot and killed an unarmed woman with a crime.

Garland is right. The whole event was the most dangerous threat to "our democracy." That is, their reaction to the legitimate protests of January 6th by organizing the "break-in" and mayhem as a Reichstag Fire pretext to then hound and persecute decent, innocent citizens, dozens of whom are still rotting in jail. Psaki-psircling back to the election audits, there is no reason for the Left to object; not if they fully believe that Biden won fair and square. The audit would confirm that, no? Of course, their reaction is telling. But it raises the question, what happens when one or more states' audits actually prove that at a minimum major fraud occurred or if the fraud actually did indeed throw the election to Biden?

The forensic audit of the popular votes in Arizona being conducted right now is intriguing and also a little scary. The forensic audit of the popular votes should be able to catch and identify voting irregularities, cheating, abnormalities, and felonious actions. What happens if not only Arizona flips, but also Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin?

The vote-winning margins in these four states were about 1%, or even much less. Not a whole lot of cheating and theft required to flip the states, if that is what actually historically happened. With Arizona's 11 Electoral College votes, with Georgia's 16, with Pennsylvania's 20, and with Wisconsin's 10, if those slim margins went to President Trump rather than Biden, the Electoral College vote would be 289 votes for Trump and just 249 for Biden. With Trump needing only 270 for the win, maybe that is why the Progressives are so determined that the forensic audits should not happen. Maybe that is why the Deep State cabal does not want light to shine in on the actual votes last November.

What would happen next? What does the military do? How does the Supreme Court rule? And then how do the masses react? How do both the Patriot and also the Progressive citizens react? Does the military put troops and tanks on the streets, especially in Washington, D.C., to keep Biden in the White House? Does the military arrest Trump for winning? Does the Supreme Court finally "man up" and hear the case of election fraud? Does the Supreme Court rule that President Trump is actually president? Does the Supreme Court rule that Trump is President Trump, but then the military vetoes the Court's decision and keeps Biden in the White House?

What then do the people do? How then do the masses react to a probable fraudulent election? Do the Patriots finally take to the streets for a "mostly peaceful protest" of the election? Or do the Patriots say they have had enough of the election fraud and fake president, and it gets violent? Does it become the Reds/Patriots versus Blues/Progressives on our streets? What happens to America if?

As a purely academic exercise, and like everything else over the past few years, we are in uncharted waters insofar as what is the remedy, if there is a remedy, for this ex post facto. New elections? Biden and Harris forced to step down? You think last summer was lit, the reaction to this would be insane. While there is no way that I can see Biden and Harris and the rest of their minions forced out, there's no doubt in mind at all that these audits are necessary. The truth must come out, and the reaction to that - if indeed the audits continue to show that the election was stolen - as painful as it will be, we cannot live a lie and cannot allow the monstrous crime and lies of 11/3/20-1/6/21 to become mythologized and etched in granite as truth, no matter the consequences to our already divided nation.

Then, one year, not exactly sure when, i just noticed that a disturbingly large amount of nonsense was getting put in. I'd be reading a bunch of neat stuff, and then some ghastly clanger of a non-sequitur or a baseless claim or just some good old fashioned prima facie nonsense would squelch out from between the pages.

I eventually said no mas. And that was decades ago. I can't imagine it somehow got better in the interim.

I dig it, JJ, but I am also reveling and laughing along with the foreigners. There is a reason for this. I am complicit in what this country is doing, insofar as I continue to work and pay taxes to it. That is far as it goes any longer, though. I view this more as poking fun at the dead, since the country as it once was most certainly is not the country as it is. This *is* the country, now. The shambling, stupid, reckless, corrupt dotard who was installed at its helm is indeed a decent reflection of the government he is pretending to direct.

This will continue. The humiliations. The insults. The contempt. It will go on and on and on. And this is a good thing. The more it happens, the more people might become appalled. The last five years - and indeed the 8 preceding it - should have been enough, but weren't. Will the added serial humiliation and loss of status be enough? I don't know. I see a tiny possibility, though.

It wasn't a fact-finding mission. It was a dictation of terms to Latin America mission. She wasn't going there to learn, she was going there to address "root causes" - and thus implying that she knew both what the root causes are, and how to tackle them. That is astoundingly arrogant. Not that she thought so, but that she blundered so catastrophically in stating it so bluntly *ahead of the event.*

They didn't kowtow this time. They rejected us, the hegemon of this entire hemisphere. It was a shocking blow in terms of regional politics and recent history. This is probably good. We no longer deserve our hegemonic status, and perhaps the loss of it will rouse people.

Musk can deliver the goods, but Bezos is better at delivering the fringe benefits. Musk isn't in command of propaganda outlets and Musk's company isn't an aspiring retail, wholesale and logistics monopoly. Musk is a loose cannon and Bezos is a consistent, steady operator who always comes through for the system.

This isn't about space. If it were about space, it's unlikely that there'd be one thin dime for Blue Origin. This is about everything else, everything *but* space - and so Bezos and the MIC (via the Export-Import Bank) come out on top. In fact, given how much this *isn't* about space, the only remarkable thing is that there's even a single SpaceX contract.

Oh, they knew that landing the stage would make recovery possible and possibly even feasible. The problem was that this approach was purely theoretical - and distantly so. When you read the industrial and popular press from the early 2000s when Musk was getting started with SpaceX, the stance from the world at large was, "sure, it sounds good - but it's impossible. The forces involved, the level of control required, the fuel overhead, etc. make it essentially impossible - but we'll enjoy watching him try."

Then he did it.

36 One of the most compelling pieces of evidence of election fraud came from the census which polled who voted in the last election. Though this method usually overestimates the number of actual voters, this time it was more than 4 million below the number of counted (you notice I didn't write 'legitimate') votes. I have predicted that Trump's victory would be demonstrated after the pretender-in-chief took office. And R's will do nothing but pontificate.

Does she? She - and the entirety of the government, from top-to-bottom in all branches - certainly doesn't reflect anything about America between then parentheses. But she certainly does represent the country and its government.

Sure, she's there by obvious and transparent fraud. And that fraud that handed her cabal the executive branch was enabled by the other two branches. This was a team effort, and they laid bare what they are to do it. Their democratic or legal legitimacy is not so important. They're there, and they're in charge. Any country that lets that happen doesn't deserve to be called a "leader" in anything.

Yeah, and everyone aware of it also knows it somewhere deep inside. If you have a business partnership and you notice something unusual (or hell, even on general principal) and go to look at the books only to find them in your partner's office safe and he refuses to show them to you and gets agitated and angry that you had the temerity to ask, you'd know immediately that something was wrong. Either you're being stolen from, or your partner is so standoffish, untrusting and untrustworthy that the relationship shouldn't continue - either you or he will need to leave the company.

But I guess elections that determine control of the most powerful government in the world are different for some reason...

You're right -- it must get worse. Certainly our current political representation is hopelessly unequal to awakening and reform. The question is, will the slow boiling melt us completely before a consolidated and meaningful resistance can take shape. As of now, any eruptions of resistance, even conventional if fervent expressions of frustrated patriotism, are being labeled, and increasingly will be prosecuted as, domestic extremism. The public, political space for the redress of grievances is shrinking by the day.

However, Wake TSI said it found five "issues of note," including that Dominion failed to meet the commonwealth's certification standards; that the election management system had Microsoft SQL Server Data Tools installed, despite the software not being part of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission's certified configuration; and that changes were made to the management system just three weeks prior to the election.

Assessors said there is "no valid reason" for the software to be installed on the system and that the presence "allows any user with access to change and manipulate the EMS databases without logging [recording] to the Database, EMS, or [operating system] logfiles."

DB management tools on a endpoint designed only to provide transactional data to the DB is a red flag. There are two reasons I can think of as to why DB management tools might be present on that kind of an endpoint:
1) Sheer incompetence or indifference, because those tools are part of the standard package and so they get installed.
2) Malicious intent

You don't want either phenomenon in your elections system.

Your local Democrat voters that you know personally might pretend they don't support murdering babies, speech codes, cancel culture, violence against Republicans, and believing that they are genetically superior to black people who are incapable of learning math, buying food, getting ID, etc.

But if they vote for a Democrat at the national level, they do.

All according to plan. I really do think that, no tongue in cheek, no tinfoil. They want chaos and disaster in the cities. Then they can get their angle on federalizing all police nationwide. The FBI and ATF and the like aren't big enough to function as a widespread boots-on-the-ground control force. They're secret police, but they need local networks of enforcers and informants to function well. They need to be able to delegate the day-to-day business to locals.

Federalizing all of the police in the name of "consistent standards" and "accountability" and "public safety" and "restoring trust" would give them that. Then they'll actually bother to crack down on the gangbangers for a while, show some real results, calm things down, and then strike from a position of strength.

73 What would happen next? What does the military do? How does the Supreme Court rule? And then how do the masses react? How do both the Patriot and also the Progressive citizens react? Does the military put troops and tanks on the streets, especially in Washington, D.C., to keep Biden in the White House? Does the military arrest Trump for winning? Does the Supreme Court finally "man up" and hear the case of election fraud? Does the Supreme Court rule that President Trump is actually president? Does the Supreme Court rule that Trump is President Trump, but then the military vetoes the Court's decision and keeps Biden in the White House?

This is stupid. The state legislatures certified the votes, giving their electoral votes to Biden. Like it or not, that made him the legitimate winner. That's not going to change. He's not going to suddenly be swept out of power to be replaced by Trump. The best that could happen would be outrage leading to GOP victories in '22 and rendering this admin a lame duck, before Trump defeats Harris in '24.

As we all know, the crazies, the BLM, the Antifa terrorists would alight city after city after city. And many of Bidumb's legitimate supporters would join in.

We know they stole the election. What would happen constitutionally should it be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt? IMO, I think the much bigger threat to our Republic is the fact that it was stolen...not how to unwind their theft. I can't think of anything more dangerous and more pressing that the theft of an American presidential election from the actual, legitimate voters. While it would be challenging to undo Biden's phony "election," there's no other way to get back any semblance of freedom of the people to choose their destiny. The stakes couldn't be more dire. Will it happen? I can't even fathom an answer, given the tentacles of the "media," Big Tech, and all the rest that are ready to fight to the death to keep their stolen power.

At the same time, realize that no other OECD country permits mail-in balloting in the manner we just experience due to the massive fraud issues.

Now put all that together with the forensic audits now being conducted, look at the level of fraud versus the margin of "victory", and finally realize, with facts and truthful analysis, that the election was stolen by a massive fraud.

Agreed. The value now is that it shames legislatures into actually reforming their systems, weakens the left, and emboldens the more hard right elements of the GOP.

119 Heritage (yes, I know) has a pretty good database sampling of proven election fraud

*

We nibble around the edges about it, but the absolute, 100% fact of the matter is that anywhere people voted in a way that was altered outside of the required legislative procedure for changing elections and voting methods yielded illegal votes that should be purged as illegal and invalid.

I don't understand the willingness to get in the weeds over folded Chad's and suitcases. That's rhetorical, of course. I don't think the Republicans have much interest in an actual fight or success in solidifying elections.

It's a shame, too. Imagine how many black voters this could appeal to.

124 It's not all that long ago - it was in my adult lifetime - that I knew doctors (and engineers) who would emphatically deny they were scientists. The distinction between science and technology was clear.

Over the last 50 years or so, science hasn't done a lot (in part because it's become very political) while technology has had amazing results just iterating on already-known things (because they need to make a profit). But at the same time, the public and the political class have mistaken technological progress for science. So it's kind of a branding thing.

Yes. The difference between science and technology is analogous to the difference between research and development. In R&D, your researchers figure out what's technically possible. Your development group figures out how to actually put the damn idea into production - if it even can be.

The research group figures out that audio information can be stored and retrieved magnetically. The development group figures out how to actually manufactures magnetic wire - and then tape, and then discs, etc. - and the heads to pickup and record and erase, etc. The development group takes the proven concept that the researches developed and put it into actual practice. The researchers don't typically understand the requirements (beyond very broadly) of manufacturing or materials procurement or marketing.

And the Junta needs her to be at least minimally competent, since there are those scary moments when she will have to think on her feet.

I'm sorry, but that was VDH at his weakest. Like everyone else, his knowledge is compartmentalized. Sure, those compartments are bigger, and his knowledge within them is greater, than is true for most of us. But the fact remains. And his besetting weakness has always been a blindness to this fact. This means he accepts a kind of CW outside his area which he would never tolerate if it shows up in speaking of Greece. (His naval section on WWII is feeble and shallow.)

The simple fact is that we were never an especially "pragmatic and commonsensical" nation. We are, after all, the ones that tried to abolish alcohol.

Sometimes we make it work, e.g., the Marshall Plan. But the Peace Corps wasn't a smashing success. Certainly the "spread of democracy" we were addicted to through the 20th C didn't have a record that was spotty at best. (Remember, VDH was all in on the Iraq War.)

They'r also lousy landlords. I have had two mom-and-pop local landlords (where you deal with the person or family that actually owns the property) and one big management company landlord-by-proxy. My friends have had more management outfits or corporate-owned units than I have.

When you know the actual person - or at least that it *is* an actual person - who owns your unit, you can work together. You can make agreements to make life better or less disruptive. You can meet in the middle if there's a problem. You can work out a problem because both parties have a vested interest. This isn't the case with big management outfits or corporate landlords. Those are just faceless bureaucracies that are utterly hidebound and sclerotic because they must be. As a renter, it sucks.

They can't replace Harris because they need her to cast tie-breaking votes. She steps down, and the GOP can refuse to vote for any replacement.

It seems that most of the time Republican observers got tossed without any type of protest. Sometime they were threatened. If they wanted me to do that job, they can expect that if someone threatened to illegally remove me, they should get ready for a throat punch. Point being, they were not prepared and later went to court after the fraud was already done. They need to put things in place, and get some people with balls who say "I ain't leaving".

The GOP is terrible at the lawfare game. We'll see what the audit turns up, but if there is no evidence of Dominion vote-switching, or weighted voting, the answer lies in the flaunting of state law with the acquiescence of state / county executive pols who wanted to see the Bad Orange Man gone.

179 Sos certifies the vote, but it is ultimately up to the leg to vote for
the electors. The Leg also stes the rules for the election. When the sos
oversteps her authority and changes the rules at the last minute, it is
up to the leg to tell her to cram the results up her front hole.

Which is what makes Pennsylvania so infuriating. Their governor changed the election laws and the legislature did less than nothing. I have always told people that a vote for President is a statement but voting for the legislature makes a difference. This is also true when talking about state legislatures.

Yep, Biden has always been a scumbag. He cheated his way through law school (where he still finished at the bottom of his class, even with all the cheating). Then he cheated on his first wife with a married campaign volunteer (Jill), probably causing his first wife to commit suicide. Then he and Jill spent decades blatantly lying about when they first met, to hide their adultery and complicity in the first wife's death. Then he embarked upon a decades-long campaign of selling illegal "favors" to various deep-pocket campaign contributors, while also taking a cut of his crooked brother's and later his crooked sons' crooked deals (which also involved selling Joe's influence and illegal "favors" using the power of Joe's various federal offices). Meanwhile, he and Jill raised three sleazy, drug-addled children, none of whom appear to have any morals (but how could they, given who raised them?).

And this is the sleazy low-life who was "elected" to restore honor to the WH. LOL

189 The election fraud in 2020 makes me think about something I sort of predicted. I thought that they tried this in 2016 - see the Miami/Dade count pause and other events - but were caught unprepared for the wave that came out for Trump. I also thought they would not be unprepared in 2020. Last year, the wave was even bigger and then the Complex did surprise me by not caring that they were being obvious with what they were doing. I didn't expect them to shout, "YOLO" and then smash across the Rubicon at high speed. That was my foolishness.

That said, though, this is clearly new only in its scale and indifference to being discovered. In other words, it differs only be degree because we're in the endgame now. This makes me question every election at least since Bush 41, at every meaningful level. Did the residents of corrupt awful cities actually keep returning their corrupt masters to office? I dunno anymore. Maybe they did, or maybe the elections have been being stolen for generations. Not only do I reject 2020, I no longer have any confidence in any election that preceded it.

And circle gets the square. As I have put it before, most people don't buy houses, they buy payments. Your payment at 2% buys a much higher purchase price than it does at 5%. Your payment at 0.5% buys even more.

Outfits like Blackrock - which were given direct access to the Fed discount window after the financial crisis in 2008/2009 - get a better interest rate than you. They're also "systemically important financial institutions" (SIFIs - "too big to fail") and will get first access to bailouts. They can bid almost arbitrarily for assets.

If you get your capital essentially for free (from a carriage cost standpoint), and your risk is distributed courtesy of the bailout system, you don't much care if you overpay by outbidding others for the asset you want. The general low-interest environment breeds financialized asset inflation, but the presence of outfits with direct access to the Fed window - who are *also* implied beneficiaries of a bailout if it goes tits up - in the same market will act as a major further amplifier.

221 Should We Trust the Medical Priesthood or Their Machines?

****

Never mind the fact that this author takes a wide ranging detour away from his opening premise aand wanders around in the wilderness for 2/3 of the essay, in the end he fails to acknowledge the key difference between automated versus human decision-making. Automted algorithms may be very complex and inclusive of large amounts of data, but they are nature ultimately binary. IF x THEN y. This requires that a "correct" answer be programmed into the system along with the desired outcome. This, in turn leads down the path of "best practices" to "settled science" and stifles innovation and thinking outside the box. The same author who decries the 'medical priesthood' apparently adores the 'AI priesthood'. Who gets to decide what is "best practice". As for me, give me a human being.

First of all AAs took it up the wazz as bad as anyone with all the fake recoveries from 2009-12. Second believing in bloc voting like that is just indulging in ridiculous stereotypes to believe there was nobody who said "fuck my dickhole neighbors if they expect me to be a compliant tool".

233 The AZ audit (assuming it finds massive irregularities / fraud) will be a catalyst for other state audits. There have been a number of state legislative delegations to AZ to observe the audit (including GA and PA).

The Biden admin could be looking at a dozen other state audits, and who know what it will find?

Of course, trying to shut down the audit -- if such were even legally possible -- isn't a good outcome either as the optics are abysmal and the consequences perhaps worse.

237 This, in turn leads down the path of "best practices" to "settled science" and stifles innovation and thinking outside the box. The same author who decries the 'medical priesthood' apparently adores the 'AI priesthood'. Who gets to decide what is "best practice". As for me, give me a human being.

Yeah, "best practices" (I got me some bargain scare quotes too!) is an invention by the insurance companies originally to try to get rid of all that "statistical messiness of medicine" and go with one or two approved treatments.

The government picked up on it cuz it's easy for stupid people to understand if you think that repairing human beings is like repairing a car.

Less than capable diagnosticians among the docs like it because it gives them an officially approved treatment that helps protect them from lawsuits should things go sideways.

Any shmoe can give you a flu shot, hence the rise of the physicians assistant, but a real doc needs to be able to spot the rare zebra among the usual heard of horses if he's a good doc.

That's 100% true, and sums up the entire problem. It's basic 7th grade stuff. If your hypothesis fails, you reject the hypothesis and start over. People who believe in science as a process leading to knowledge WANT scrutiny and argument, because it tests the hypothesis.

You can maintain belief in a failed hypothesis all you want, but that's no longer science.

The now-typical method of "smart home" stuff terrifies the living piss out of me and I will never have it in my home. I'm going to have to firmly tell the HVAC outfit that. My central A/C is pushing thirty years old and it's only a matter of time. If I get the rest of the summer out of it, I will be surprised. The next thing that goes wrong with it will be the last thing that goes wrong with it.

I got (and paid for) several quotes during home inspection last year when I bought the place. Every single outfit includes in their quote all kinds of whiz-bang automation from the basics ("smart" thermostat) to really complicated whole-home automation setups at a modest cost premium (they're already there and already doing major work, so it doesn't cost too much more to just do it all at once). I am prepared for a *very* hard sell when I tell them "no sale" on the smart shit.

I don't think that BlackRock will keep these homes off he market - they're in it to make money, after all. BlackRock, like many other Wall Street entities, has succumbed to the wokeness phenomenon. They remember 2008, and they don't want to be Occupyed again, so they'll get in front of it.

Or the consequences of improved resolution. Like when some undergrad tested his question (not even a fully-formed hypothesis) about whether the growing hole in the ozone layer was actually growing, or not. He measured it using old equipment, then slightly newer, etc. He was able to produce the same chart as the historical chart in the space of a few months. The hole wasn't actually growing, our ability to detect its extent was improving.

Then later work showed that it grows and contracts on its own fairly frequently.

Instrumentation - and therefore resolution - makes everything subject to change.

296 I live in a state that already has a holiday to commemorate the TRUE end of slavery in the United States.

That day was Alaska Day, October 18, 1867, the day Alaska officially changed hands from Russia to the United States, and the date when slavery TRULY came to an end on what is now U.S. soil. The Tlingit Indians had many thousands of slaves (they used to run slave raiding missions as far south as California), and those slaves were freed when the United States took possession.

That was more than two years after "Juneteenth".

They have completely folded on the COVID despotism. They need a force within the Tories to break out and take back that party on behalf of the people. Johnson is a weak wanker and a coward.

There were a handful of ones for Bush in the whole country, but basically no matter how Republican an area was there were always a few votes for Gore or a third party guy...and 100% block voting is the norm for Dems.

I own single family homes so there is a different dynamic than apartments. I have been doing this for 10 years and I have never had a house sit empty for more than a few weeks. And those few weeks were on purpose to clean, do minor renovations in between tenants.

I keep the houses in great shape, whenever anything breaks I fix it ASAP, etc. on the other hand I have very strict criteria like excellent credit. That is non negotiable for me.

Another thing that independent LLs like me can provide is some flexibility with income. I live in a town where lotsa blue state refugees are moving to. And when they move there they sometimes have no job lined up. But they just sold their house for $1.7M and have $1M in the bank from that sale. For Big Corp, Inc where they have a strict formula of income requirement, they would be out of luck. For me that $1M in the bank in lieu of income is fine. Or if they pre pay rent I will give a slight discount, things like that.

I parlayed that to mutual benefit on my last rental. It was lease renewal time and I got a rent increase of 10% in the new lease. I went back to the landlord and said, "make it 5% and I'll sign for two years, prepay the first year and lump-sum the second year on the first day of the second year." She agreed, so that's what we did. I got cheaper rent, she got large amounts (for me, anyway) of working capital, and the effective return for me was wildly better than the interest I could have earned on that money.

And that would never have happened with a corporate landlord.
