The pessimistic view is that Trump will eventually have to give in as the anger of furloughed workers grow, despite the shutdown being the leftoids fault. The optimistic view is that Trump strikes a deal that involved higher taxes on the (mostly leftoid globalist) uber-wealthy maybe coupled with a small inconsequential amnesty - perhaps DACA light - and also maybe basic (minimal/catastrophical only) universal healthcare for everybody and outflank and outplay the reigning Dems, getting his border security.

From a stock trading "investment" view TSLA was a big success, esp. for early adopters of its stock, no question. However the market gets more wrong then people tend to think, and as a company success has been modest. They cranked out pretty good cars, luxury EVs, but for a very high price and debt. Doubtful they can sustain, that's why the price is correcting now. Let's wait til next earnings.

You dont think bill Maher and others will hopefully start the final SJW backlash from the left?

I think some will try. I will be cheering and even voting for some of the dems if they publicly stand against the madness

I doubt it. If anyone on right would say anything remotely as racist as this, he would be (justifiably) dragged through mud, his colleagues would be guilty of being racist by association, and so on. For racists in Left, if their racism is directed towards Fucking White males, it all is fine and dandy.
I like listening to Maher occasionally, he seems rather intelligent and some jokes and interviews are amusing and interesting, and he does not dismiss everything that he disagrees with. But if he starts criticizing racists such as Ms. Malika Henderson, he will be kicked out of his show.

I'd happy to be wrong, and if there is a blue-collar supporting D who s...

You're probably right although sometimes we can hope that even leftoids or at least real old-school liberals can occasionally find their balls. Maher already had close run-ins with the SJW nutters and weaseled out successfully, but not without complying with a lot of their demands and backtracking some - but at least not all - of his criticism. He has a successful career as of now and if he starts seriously rebelling the only way he could sustain his lifestyle and salary would be to flip 180 and go work for the conservative media, doubt he's ready to do that. So Maher stays put.

Are you guys suggesting that if France had a zero tolerance immigration policy against Muslims, the riots against fuel costs and taxation would not be taking place?

I was just talking to a French guy who told me that the whole yellow vest protest thing in Paris is really about Macron's lying to get elected. He apparently promised to both reduce their "social security" taxes (the French version) and to maintain retirement benefits, but after getting elected, he reversed course on both of those promises.

So people are pretty pissed at him.

This is only going to get worse, but in reality it's better as the prices adjust to their intrinsic values and affordability. Look for another 20%-25% haircut in prices. Soon we will be down 40%-50% from peak prices. And that's a good thing.
  mell   ignore (1)   2019 Jan 22, 10:39am   ↑ like (0)   ↓ dislike (0)   quote   flag

Asking prices down 12%. But the offers accepted are often 10%-30% below asking. It's not unusual for a "motivated" seller to sell a house listed for 1.5MM for just above 1MM whereas at the peak they sold over asking price. That's here in the bay area, other parts of the country where prices have not bubbled as much will obviously hold more steadily, but this is already around a 25%-40% decline on average for the final sale price from the peak.

People who really need food should be given food, not money.

Totally agree, however the problem is that this is more expensive in terms of bureaucracy. Unless they let volunteer programs, people who are doing a social/volunteer year or other lower paid workers handle the distribution of food it will go to government workers who will be extremely expensive in selecting and distributing food, not to mention the corruption wrt who they buy food from and at what prices.

If I didn't get my house at bottom my family would have moved years ago. Wife and I still plan to leave once kids are older, but who knows this subject comes up so much maybe sooner, our friends that have already jumped ship seem to have a happier lives and their children are doing well. This place is a rat race, and the rats just keep piling up.

This morning in SF a big guy - not a pansy - in his suit on his way to work was knocked out cold in a swift surprise move from behind followed by a hard punch in the face with a knuckle-ring by some coked out criminal asshole thug. While his blood was running onto Market Street the cops/ambulance took some time to arrive and only a private security guard stood by. Leave this shithole to the leftoids but if you come down here with your family you better be armed and ready to shoot.

So you disagree with OP "#1: JavaScript"

No, JS is number 1 now. But it's not suitable for large projects or projects that need to be extremely dependable. Much of the JS projects use such projects coded in other languages when they make calls to caches, clusters, servers etc. Node.js itself is growing old, be interesting to see what comes next.

My 12yo started messing with java 4 years ago now he uses it for making mods and little games

If a 8 yrs old can do it (even a very smart one), what is the future of that skill?
Study AI and things that are not so simple.

Being a Java or Scala pro requires many years of experience, the fact that kids can program small projects against it actually speaks for the language itself. Java will be around for another 20+ years (same goes for C#,C++,C), it's not going anywhere. Meanwhile Kotlin is like an enhanced version of Java, or you can always use Scala for rock-solid JVM projects.

I was saddened to hear that node is now officially afflicted with multiple threads.

Huge mistake! Yuge! Single-threading is node's greatest virtue. Multithreading is a nightmare everywhere it is used. Impossible to debug.

If you have to do things in parallel, use multiple processes on multiple cores. Keep them out of each other's memory space.

Makes fast shared data caches tough though. Modern multi-core processors are made for multi-threading and have fast local L1 caches.

Right. Worked so well with Saddam, Iraq is a modern peaceful nation now.

Is US sending troops to Venezuela? Did we send troops to Iraq? Is there a difference between two approaches?

Even with sending troops, how did it work out with Japan, S. Korea, Taiwan? Why did it work there and not in Iraq?

There is yuge difference. Saddam actually had a thriving country going on with enough wealth for everyone and empowered women. Plus he controlled the religious extremists quite well. As long as you weren't his political enemy you did well. Venezuela on the other hand has been transformed into a starving shit hole via Socialism (TM) and now the starving population is fired at.

What is the trigger or event or sequencing that will turn sales declines into pricing declines?

Maybe you are confusing the causality: sales go down... because prices go up.
And as the market becomes more exclusive to the rich, prices can go on increasing. Doesn't matter if the rest population is either leaving or living in the streets.

The only moderation would be from building more.

Not necessarily. Usually few sales will skew the median upwards as the rich are always willing to buy (they don't need to time the market). Overall price action has been down for regular houses.

Stop blathering opinion pieces. Just post the global daily temperatures. Opinions are unnecessary just the data suffices. While 2018 was the 4th or 5th hottest year (downward trend) I bet January will not even record within the top 5. Yes it may still be a very warm year but the trend has been down the past years solidly defying the hockeystick curve. If you can find and link a site that has the daily raw global data for 2019 that would be a solid start of a data driven discussion. TIA

Ah, the Republican two-buttons straw dilemma meme again. How about these labels for the buttons? "Judge actions 40 years ago by the norms and values of 40 years ago" or "Judge actions 40 years ago by the norms and values of today and punish like a recent offence"

Just like in the case of Kavenaugh, the person's long term track record and current behavior becomes important when judging character in the present.

I don't even know this guy and haven't yet read up on the current scandal. I just hate this type of political discourse that is so trendy.

Almost 80% approval on both of the DNC's biggest puppet networks.

I have to find that old thread done by a British Group on American groupings. Basically, about 75-80% of Americans are moderate. Only 12% are SJWs, but since they control the Media/Hollywood/Entertainment, they seem like they represent "America".

They're as out of touch as Amanda Marcotte:

They high-fived themselves. They danced. They rolled their eyes at the pussy-grabbing executive. They threw major shade. Most importantly, Abrams laid out the positive Democratic agenda.

They may be the last if they ever leave because the SV leftoid censorship culture worships their enablers and thus they can get away with anything, for that they gladly pay a little extra for their employees.

Personally, I feel frustrated that the popular obsession with CO2 distracts from more important forms of pollution.

Distraction is not the worst of it: sometimes prioritizing lowering CO2 leads to increase of other, more dangerous kind of pollution. Best example: push for diesel passenger cars which lead to increase of carcinogenic emissions in European cities. But diesels do produce less CO2, so fuck that poor saps who got lung cancer.

Actually some European countries have been cracking down on Diesels lately. However a diesel does not produce carcinogens with the exception of fine dust/particles - the actual damage is very controversially debated and nobody knows if the current output by cars is even dangerous - and a modern diesel with a state of the art fine particle filter does not emit those particles. A diesel is much more fuel efficient (I don't care about CO2 emissions either) and the real Diesel polluters are big freight ships / tankers. Also many regular engines with direct injection emit as much fine particle dust as a diesel engine. There has been a witch hunt on Diesels and it would be sad to see this successful technology go. However there should be a requirement that all Diesels must be equipped with modern fine particle filter. But as long as the ships and tankers are out there don't even bother regulating cars too much (except for in smog zones/days maybe where no cars - regardless of engine type - should drive).

I heard some pundit say, " why isn't their corn mania". Like tulips, more pot can easily be grown than can ever be smoked.

I suspect prices will continue to fall as long as anyone can grow a couple plants without the threat of police raiding with m16's locked and loaded and flash bang pins pulled.

Agreed - there will be few players that will make money and appreciate bigly but the rest will falter due to overproduction and falling prices - consolidation ahead. There was a time to buy pot stocks but it likely passed.

The greatest example is with the divorce and family courts cynically acting like women are the victims and we still live in the 1950's.

The 50s were woke. I have to find it, but I read an article featuring a MALE (imagine that) Family Court Judge bemoaning, back in the 50s before No Fault, how women would desperately invent bullshit to say they needed a divorce on the grounds of cruelty : "He only let me have 2 Lace Dollies for my Easy Chair, not 6 for all the Chairs! We have the money, but he is being cruel, talking about investing in the stock market. He has a pension! And he won't replace the refrigerator that's only 5 years old, but it's not frost-free!"

The poor judge had to sit through hours of that everyday, women getting hysterical over nothing and crying and wailing at him and insisting that trivial bullshit was a pattern of cruelty, trying to get a divorce.

Divorce should be very hard to do, only if proven physical or emotional abuse (need recordings etc.) or without such a cause the divorcer should get nothing. They are free to move on but not to milk the other party. No-fault divorce needs to be repealed.

Only women, transgenders are allowed in GW debate tournament

And some people here talk about how Fucking White Males are the ultimate raycists/sexists/bigots...

“Women and anyone who does not identify as cis male will be welcome to compete, and registration is no questions asked,” Cryer told Campus Reform.

LOL well then have Harry Ballz and his bro buddies identify as Loretta and register - it's no questions asked right? For fucks sake the left has become so fucking stupid that no amount of swearing can make up for it. This is darker comedy than Monty Python ever was - what are they thinking now that they parodies have become reality? lol

You're all right and wrong. The problem is the system itself. Medicare and any other SS system is a ponzi scheme, so yes the people who enacted it should be held responsible. Every year you should only allowed to distribute what you took in, private insurances make a profit on top of it, but that is not strictly necessary for a government run program. Of course administration must be cheap and sparse enough to cost less than the appreciation of the paid in funds, whatever they are invested in. With the Federal Reserve and the medical sector engaging in rampant inflation (= ponzi scheme) it will be hard for any such system to keep up. The problem is while the millenials often have a terrible attitude and just want to vote for free stuff they already have been fucked over by the debt which is nothing but a future promise to pay by work delivered by the next generations. So everybody says fuck you and you may get socialism as a result and everybody loses.

Sandy Hook, Columbine etc. ?

TBF I think all of those were on some kind of psychotropic medications, and we do not hear about that in MSM. Perhaps Big Pharma can be blamed for these shootings, and also for buying off MSM and politicians so this information does not get out. We keep arguing if the guy wore swastika or red star on the diapers, while pharma rakes in $$$$$$$

Agreed. SSRIs are pure evil. It's fcking disingenuous by the leftoids though to take all those loser kids of which none ever wrote anything coming even half way close to a political or religious manifesto and scream "fcuking white rightwing terrorism" while ignoring the clearly spelled out political manifestos and letters every time there's an islamic terrorist attack anywhere in the world. Pathetic.

Whatever - I am critical of Israel often enough (though Israeli Jews are hardly ever the problem, it's the western ones that vote against the Western world's interest of self-preservation and promote deranged SJWs) as well and agree that it does not automatically equate to anti-semitism. But Ilhan Omar is a piece of shit and should not be defended. She was the one of the sole two votes AGAINST a bill that now allows insurance companies to deny life insurance payout for acts of terrorism, which would thwart the common practice for the terror orgs to pay for life insurance so that the families of their "recruits" are set. Fuck this POS and send her back to a country without women's rights. People voting for a terrorist sympathizer like this pos must be truly deranged.

What is Trump doing to get rid of the Patriot Act?

Excellent question.
