    Some of my liberal family members were just SO. EXCITED!! to have the FIRST BLACK WOMAN as a VP. Wow were they gushing. How foreward thinkng! How historic! Not only breaking the gender ceiling, but the race one also! Double triple Bonus points!!!

    It’s taking ALL of my willpower and then some not to ask them what they think of this cackling moron now. I don’t care if she’s black, green or purple. Or if it’s a she or a he or a “Ze”. What I do care about is BASIC COMPETENCE for the role, and she not only doesn’t have it - she’s a worldwide laughingstock.

    Some of us remember how Dan Quayle was absolutely crucified for mispelling Potato. Can you imagine if we had a press with even a SHRED of fair treatment how they “should” report on this idiot?

    Healthy markets don’t run up 3+% one day and down 5+% the next day on no new real news.

    I was going to take profits in December after a 20+% up year but allowed groupthink to influence what I did. I sold about 1% instead of the 15-20% I was going to sell and am kicking myself ever since.

    The fact we’re seeing so much selling at S&P ~4125 says to me that a lot of people must think we are headed a lot lower.

    The only question becomes..how low, and how long will it take to recover? We could easily see a 5+ year “underwater” period just based on the math.

    Oh, and I totally think the Dems are enjoying watching capitalism burn. So they can replace it with their “utopia” of Socialism.

  • Brands should force Twitter to uphold content policies under Musk, advocacy groups say

    So the left is now pushing big companies to not advertise on Twitter unless Twitter promises to basically cow tow to their "demands" which include not letting "hate speech" (which as we all know is anything the left disagrees with) or "banned users" return.

    I suspect Musk doesn't care one iota whether companies like Disney, Coca-Cola, etc don't advertise on Twitter and will tell those insisting on their little "demands" to pound sand, but guess we will see..

    USA Today just ran an article (yesterday, I think), all aghast that Trump “obviously has dementia, OMG!!” becaise mixed up the names of a couple candidates at this weekend’s rally.

    It was quite a lengthy article that went over all sorts of “evidence” that it’s “totally and completely clear beyond any doubt” that Trump is “suffering from dementia” and must “take a cognitive test immediately”.

    Yet, AFAIK, not a peep about Joe’s OBVIOUS and REAL dementia.

    You really can’t make this stuff up.

    We watched the 2nd (?) of the latest Star Wars mess - the one with Han Solo and Chewbacca back again. That one was (barely) watchable with the “superhero girl with amazing powers that just randomly showed up - with zero effort or training” (unlike Luke in the originals)..you know, cuz “girl power” or something. It also had a bunch of diverse characters, apparently simply for the sake of diversity and not actual character development.

    Caught a glimpse or two of the ones after that and OMG they are beyond awful looking. Did not even bother to try watching those.

    Great job, woke Disney..you managed to single handedly kill off one of the greatest franchises of all time.

    Companies like Netflix (and Twitter) are not run to make money.

    They are run SOLELY to “control the narrative”.

    Ditto garbage like SNL, network “news” and every late night “comedian” you can name.

    If anyone happens to own Netflix, Twitter, NBC, Disney, etc stock and still hasn’t sold it - for the love of God and all that’s Holy, dump that garbage pronto!!

    Fortunately, many have figured out what the game is at this point and are no longer listening to any of it. And that is likely why Netflix now and Disney, Twitter, etc are likely to TANK in the months ahead. (Twitter stock, interestingly, has gone NOWHERE since their IPO in 2013. Yet the BOD won’t sell the company to Musk. That right there tells everyone it’s not being run to make money - it’s being run to control the narrative).

    Read an interesting article the other day..

    In my (boomer) generation, census surveys say that something like 0.3% of people “identify” as LGBTQXYZPDQ (what I jokingly call the entire ridiculous nonsense).

    Fast forward to latest gen. Something like 20+% (which I call BS on, but just what they say) “identify” as LGBTQXYZPDQ..

    Simple explanation: we didn’t all of a sudden start having 20+% MORE people “born” LGBTQ. Kids nowadays are in all likelihood being INFLUENCED (by teachers, society, “trendy” parents, etc) to BECOME LGBTQXYZPDQ.

    I still remember being 7 years old or so, and my Grandma (who I lived with at the time) was really into crochete. Since I loved everything Grandma did (she was AWESOME), I started to like crochete. BIG WOOPS. My Grandpa was LIVID and let everyone know in no uncertain terms that his GrandSON would NOT be doing crochete.

    Today’s parents would probably say “oh, look..how cute..little guy is actually a girl. Let’s encourage ‘her’ to explore that...”

    And THAT, ladies and gents, is why we now allegedly have 20+% of people “identifying” as LGBTQXYZPDQ. No way on earth 20+% of people are “born that way”. None. Zero. Zip.

  • Murkowski and Romney support Biden nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson for Supreme Court

    Thought I saw earlier today that Murkowski is running something like 20+ points behind the MAGA candidate.

    She’s obviously trying to burn down the house on the way out. She’s as good as gone.

    And Romney - God help me, this scumbag convinced us to actually vote for him - because the alternative was so much worse.

    This makes me absolutely sick to my stomach. How any alleged “Conservative” “Republican” can vote FOR a nominee that said she does not “have any position” on whether Americans have “inherent rights” as outlined in the Declaration of Independence, for God’s sake (as KBJ has in her written answers)..is simply beyond my ability to comprehend.

  • A Judge Has Declared California's Corporate Diversity Law Unconstitutional

    The attempted law also violates the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as does every single hiring decision being made today on the basis of race, gender, etc.

    Thank God for Judicial Watch. These guys are doing some great work.

    Seems like a “chip shot” to sue the living bajeebus out of anyone that makes a hiring decision based on race, gender, etc. At least it “should” be, if our court system wasn’t so riddled with far left judges that seem to ignore little things like actual laws already on the books.

    Braveheart was a masterpiece.

    AMEN to that! Perfectly cast, well written, acted and directed. Fantastic storyline that grabs you from early on and never lets go. And most importantly - JUST a (very compelling) story. No political innuendo or outright proselytizing.

    Braveheart was probably one of the very last decent movies to have ever been made. Things have gone to total and complete crap since then (1995 IIRC) in terms of movie making. It's tragic, as we used to LOVE a good movie - to the point we built a pretty nice theater in the basement..just to watch movies like Braveheart. No longer own that house, but sure do miss going down there to watch Braveheart for the 100th or so time :)

    Just because inflation is 7% today doesn’t mean it will be 7% for the next 10 years, recession or no recession.

    Remember that inflation is measured year over year. So, if we had 7+% inflation again NEXT year, that'd be on top of the 7+% we had this year.

    More likely is that we'll have ~4% inflation in 23 (per recent Fed projections), which still ain't good - but it's not gonna be 7% again year over year unless the wheels truly come off the cart. (Actually, with Brandon in charge, anything is possible..)

    jstolzen to fatboy

    The only thing I can figure is that Trump is the “big idea” guy (including his time building the Trump brand into what it was at the peak), and he had some real kick a$$ managers that he knew for decades that had proven they could be trusted to deliver who actually did all the heavy lifting. That obviously includes his kids, but likely many other experienced people.

    He doesn’t have that now, as he’s operating in an entirely different world from NY Real Estate. Instead, he has to rely on people he hasn’t known for decades that SAY they can deliver, and rarely do (Devin, looking at you, bud. You’re CEO. Get this fixed, and get it fixed yesterday or it’s pretty much game over).

    No other real explanation I can think of. But it’s sure been a hot mess. I also tried to sign-up early on and have already pretty much given up. Didn’t get confirmation emails for days. When I did, they didn’t work. No web App. No Android app. And MOST importantly - no Trump. Everything else aside, that last one is unfathomable. How can Trump not be posting? SERIOUSLY?! And that one is something he himself can easily fix, but hasn’t. Hmmmmmm.

    I’ll stick my neck out and say I TOTALLY agree with you - Truth Social has been one of the single worst launches in internet history.

    Face it..Truth was always going to be a target for the left. So what’s one of THE stupidest things Nunes and Trump could have done? Bungle the launch - badly. That just gave the left even MORE ammo to fire at Truth. You could bank on the fact they were going to hammer it no matter what..now, they have even more material to deride it with.

    Even worse, the single biggest draw to Truth is Trump. And he’s not posting. AT. ALL. How idiotic is that?! Yeah, I know..some have said he wants to wait until everyone is on. Bad idea. People are signing up to Truth largely to hear what Trump has to say..and he hasn’t posted anything other than we’d hear from him ‘soon’.

    I love Trump’s “America First” outlook and his policies. But the guy is not without faults. And they’re some big ones. One glaring fault is that he often does things partway, which is surprising from someone that built a multi-billion dollar business empire. He’s always had this mystique of the Midas touch with business in general. Which makes the fact he often does things like this (partway) such a mystery.

    I spent my entire 4+ decade career in IT, and the one thing you NEVER, EVER do is launch a big app before it’s fully tested and completely ready. I mean, EVER. If you do, you’re going to have massive problems - just like Truth Social does today.

    Just keeping it real, so please spare the snarky responses. I’d love for Truth to be wildly successful, but we have to face reality that it’s been a debacle to this point.
