  • SF's Ferry Building Marketplace fully re-opens after being reclassified(the way forward?)

    San Francisco's Ferry Building Marketplace announced Thursday that it is fully open for business, just three days after malls were ordered to close because the county was placed on the state watch list for increased transmission of the coronavirus. Shops in the market hall without doors leading directly outside were ordered to close Wednesday, in accordance with a statewide public health order. On Thursday, Hudson Pacific Properties, which owns the building, said that the Ferry Building was being designated as a transport terminal rather than a shopping mall, allowing it to fully reopen, according to KQED. "As of 7/23/20, both...

    In nine weeks, the borough has seen just 25 luxury homes enter into contract, an 88% decline year over year Buyers have signed deals for 25 luxury Manhattan homes since the crisis started nine weeks ago, compared to 207 contracts during the same time span last year, according to Olshan—a remarkable 88% decline year-over-year. The latest contracts highlighted some ways in which the crisis has changed buyers’ priorities to favor perks such as outdoor space. The most expensive deal, for example, was a three-bedroom condo in one of the new Waterline Square buildings, a trifecta of glass towers each designed...

    American Thinker ^ | 11/19/2018 | Selwyn Duke
    By Selwyn Duke Truly great disasters come like a thief in the night. How many foresaw Rome’s sacking in 410 A.D., her collapse 66 years later, WWI or WWII? As for today, how many see that the United States is at what some call a tipping point, what others may call a Fourth Turning? Whatever you call it, the American republic is in its last days. This is too scary for many to contemplate, but there’s something far scarier: playing ostrich and not being prepared for things to come. The so-called Left, ever violent since its French Revolution birth and...
  • Kristol: It’s profoundly depressing and vulgar to hear an American president proclaim America first

    The Chinese put China first. The Russians put Russia first. Israelis believe in Israel first. So, what’s wrong with Americans seeking to put our country before a faceless, vacuous globalism that has eaten away at our manufacturing base, taken the lives of our best and brightest overseas, and threatened our standard of living for decades? According to neoconservatives like Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, apparently a lot. Kristol let out a tweetstorm before and during Donald Trump’s “America First” themed inauguration speech Friday, highlighted by this gem: "I'll be unembarrassedly old-fashioned here: It is profoundly depressing and vulgar to hear...

    Young YouTube channel maker and Hillary opponent decides to pay an on-film visit to Hillary Headquarters, posing as an enthusiastic volunteer. Hillary's HQ in downtown of Delaware city is just then about to launch a "Door-Knocking Campaign" in 10 minutes. 2-minute video shows a low-energy War Room mostly devoid of people; they are apparently surprised to see anyone show up. The city of Delaware is just 7 miles north of Columbus in the critical swing-state of Ohio..!
  • Nationwide was the most mentioned Super Bowl advertiser on social media — not for the right reasons

    Nationwide ran two ads during the Super Bowl this year, but it was one that told the story of dead children (watch it below) that really got people talking. So much so that Nationwide has landed itself the ominous title of the most-mentioned advertiser on social media during Super Bowl XLIX, according to quickfire analysis from digital marketing technology company Amobee Brand Intelligence across Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. The ad, which featured a boy talking about all the life achievements he missed out on because he died in an accident, was an attempt to raise awareness about the fact that...

    As a teenager, I used to day dream about escaping the oppressive communist society where we lived. I did not have a passport and a snowball chance in hell of getting one, I did not have any money, and our travel was restricted to a 20- mile radius, as far as our feet could carry us, as far as the rickety government-run buses would transport us, and as far as our pocketbooks allowed. We were so poor though, the wind whistled through our pockets most of the time. I hid in Grandpa’s tall corn fields or in the woods by...
  • The depressing reality of ‘the recovery’: Americans aren’t getting jobs. They’re retiring.

    For most of his presidency, President Obama has been focused on the economic short run — which makes sense, given that he took office in the midst of the biggest recession since the 1930s. With his big economic speech today, he’s shifting to the long-run, talking about the structural changes he thinks the economy needs to see for the U.S. to prosper going forward. But anyone who thinks that the short-run battle is over should take a look at a new report by Daniel Alpert over at the Century Foundation. Alpert notes that while the headline unemployment number is well...

    Doesn’t Obama remind you of those depressing people – you know the ones – you see them approaching at a party and try to look like you’re deep in conversation with someone else to avoid talking to them. Or when their names show up on caller ID, you let it go to voice mail because you’d rather put a needle in your eye than listen to them. Talking to them is just so depressing. Mostly because they do all the talking, you’ve heard it all before, and when the conversation’s over you feel like you need to take a Xanax...

    Me | Today | Dan Pride
    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..

    It's not just you: yesterday really was depressing By Catriona Davies (Filed: 24/01/2006) If you woke up yesterday feeling gloomy and found that, from then on, things got worse, there may be an explanation. According to one academic's calculations, yesterday was the most depressing day of the year. Cliff Arnall, a psychologist at Cardiff University who devised the formula, blamed a combination of debts, failed New Year's resolutions, the cold, grey weather and the length of time since Christmas. "For most people, there's a realisation by the third week of January that spending on sales items needs to be stopped...

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...

Yet the Supreme Court thre out sodomy laws in all 50 states and recognized the right of government to seize land for any reason. And you couldn't pass your Social Security changes could you? Sorry, that was your last shot. Come November, we're going to start seeing more Democratic faces in the House. It's the end for you guys. You guys are celebrating when Bush's numbers go *up* to 45%.

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...
