Haiti has a pretty fucked up history. According to this, France first fucked 'em. Then, they came back and extorted them. Then, We invaded, took over, and subjugated the 'niggers' again. Oh, and we took all of their gold. We continued to fuck with them, organizing coups, continued to invade them twice in this century. And the UN brought them cholera.


So is it or is it not a shithole? Remember, the argument is not about who's "guilty" of what, but the current state of that country.

San Francisco is literally a shithole:


Same BART where one janitor pulled $240K in pay last year.

Yep, the lesson is clear: control who's coming into your country or it may become not your country very fast.

But by the rules of this country, if China invades the USA, murders citizens, takes and keeps land, and creates a new myth to cover it over, then that is the way.


If something like that happened the rules of this country would be pretty irrelevant, wouldn't they?

The worlds markets did better. Why is trump not keeping up with all the socialist countries?

You mean like Venezuela, Cuba, and North Korea.


No not those shit holes. He was probably talking about China, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Canada, Sweden, Norway, Ireland, New Zealand and Belgium.


So he was talking about countries that practice capitalism.


No socialism.

"Life in China remains relatively less stressful and more relaxed than life in capitalist countries like America."

Right.

say a family in which wife and husband each make $100K (average in Los Angeles). even when 401K is maxed, their state income tax is $16K. but they can only deduct $10K total for BOTH property taxes and state income taxes. they used to o be able to deduct $37K but this year they can only deduct $25K. as you can see this means $4K less in their refund.


You are overlooking the income tax rate decrease. It will most likely offset the lost deduction.

He jealous. Africa has always led Europe throughout history. It is just it's depiction in the racist media that makes it look like a shit hole.

HSA is an investment account first and foremost


The money is stipulated for healthcare expenses only, if that's an investment, it's a shitty one.


It's allowed to be invested and grow tax-free instead of just sitting there and earning 0.01%. But hey, it's your funeral, do as you like with your money.

u mean prices won't drop a dime even after a massive 7.0 - 9.0 earthquake that levels everything and then brings Tsunami that levels whatever was left remaining?


Dude, I repeat: after a massive EQ in CA the resulting tsunami will be outbound. It will flood some expensive RE for sure, but not in CA. Try Japan.

There are tsunami evacuation routes though everywhere here near Ocean beach. So there is the possibility of an inbound Tsunami.


Of course there is. But this would be after EQ somewhere else. Like Japan.

Still this has little to do with house prices, which I expect to stall and possibly drop a little on rising rates and unaffordability. No crash in sight yet, stock market becoming a it more volatile though.

do you even realize the reason for high state income taxes is the higher illegal population which requires more money to maintain roads, school, infrastructures?

Oh man.... I put bitcoin buy orders in between 8-9k. Was hoping it dips more. See strong buy activity at the moment. Some people will make a killing off this dip. I was hoping the panic sellers will put more pressure on the prices. Oh well, at least I picked up some ltc and ETH on the low side. If we start the rally now I will add more to all my positions.


You can't see any activity as most buy and sell cycles are really lengthy (take 24 hours or more) until this is better controlled with many ETFs and futures. This is at the mercy of the few whales and already lost 50% for its peak. Could crash further if more whales decide to sell.


Nah, it'll recover by lunchtime.

Interesting math that Apple only has 250 billion overseas but are going to contribute 350 billion to the US economy. How does that work exactly?


They said "over the next 5 years". It's not like Apple won't earn any money overseas over the next 5 years...

Regarding San Francisco though I think that the city should simply put up as many public restrooms as feasable. This is an expenditure that doesn't cost the world and would improve its image and tourism drastically.


They tried. And fucked up as usual:


"When the city debuted 25 automated, self-cleaning public toilets on some of San Francisco's busiest streets, they were supposed to alleviate public urination and keep our streets cleaner. At the time, city officials promised "a little touch of Paris."

Paris never smelled like this.

This week I walked into the public toilet on the bustling intersection of Powell and Market and immediately thought - how long can I hold my breath? The place smelled awful, the floor was wet, and there was something horrible in the toilet. Welcome San Francisco tourists!

The toilets were installed in 1995 and ever since have had maintenance problems. JCDecaux Co. was supposed to be able to maintain and sell advertisements on the public toilets. The advertising part works just fine. But that automated, self-cleaning part is a different story. JCDecaux is required to service each unit daily, but upkeep is spotty and a representative from the company did not respond to a request for comment.

"I see people waiting in line at the toilet in Civic Center and I tell them just to go to Starbucks," said Dina Hilliard, executive director of the North of Market/Tenderloin Community Benefit District. "You have no idea when that door will open and when it does there will probably be a mess."

The behavior of a car in the snow is basically the same as behavior of a car at very high speeds on dry warm tarmac (ignoring aero for simplicity). The same stuff which happens on dry pavement at, say, 120mph happens at 30-40mph in the snow. If you don't have proper tires for the conditions the limits shift even lower. So, basically, if you're good high-speed dry pavement driver you should have no problem driving on dirt or snow, because it's basically the same shit: driving near the limit of available traction. So I'm surprised that professional racecar driver has a problem with some snow on the road.

Have you ever driven in snow?


Yes. For many years. Starting in RWD cars without any electronic nannies.

Have you driven near the limit on a racetrack?
