The mistake all those other states make, is not being CAL-I-FORN-I-A !!!!
Why do we assume it 'takes weeks or months' to prep a building for demolition. I imagine buildings full of uber-sensitive information of international importance cannot be allowed to simply become a disaster area wandered about in by any old Tom, Dick and Muhammed emergency worker.
WTC wasn't such a structure.
What'd the 1993 truck bomb do? Certainly didn't knock down the building and that was 1300 pounds of crafted explosives.
Don't you think people in the building, would notice entire floors blocked off for install? Tons of explosives being rolled into the building? Workers putting it in place?
Hollywood fantasy doesn't add points.
I heard he's off road-testing some vehicles.
Clearly Eric Lensehr was involved, just as in the JFK assassination:
I think it'd be great to have the "loser" become Vice President.
Not retroactive of course. Joe Biden is THE MAN!
All we need to do is scour the Genesis Planet.
Technically, haven't 401K loans been in place for a long time to do essentially the same thing?
Financial media giving this guy a knob job, or even the time of day is disgusting.
He's either a fraud or an idiot. The former deserves an orange jumpsuit, the latter a duncecap.
If there's one thing I'm certain of, it's that this is a BANKSTER idea. 401K are often locked up in staid funds.
In the investing world, VELOCITY of money is everything. Everyone should spend every cent as soon as it comes in and save nothing. The more velocity there is on money, the faster the FIRE people can pile up fees. The already outsized growth of their sector, needs more sugar so the tumor can get even bigger.
This is why bankers are not united against Social Security. It gives them a fiction of a backstop, so they can claim you don't need to save anything at all.
Alan and his buddy here should be cellmates.
"I guess I should warn you, if I turn out to be particularly clear, you've probably misunderstood what I've said."
A few years back every time I'd travel East and mention I'm from California people
would ask me shit about when California was going bankrupt. Kind of like they wonder
when it's going to break off and fall into the ocean.
Americans desire what their Baby Boomer parents had. Only bigger of course.
It's very depressing to me. There were some small neighborhoods with a great variety of design philosophies in the 60's and 70's. Place I'm living now is a Streng Brothers "Carter Classic" house (derived from Eichler in BA) from early 70's and it's really quite cool. Now it's pretty much a handful of mega-developers who build the same goddamn burbclaves with the same goddamn house designs over and over and over....
Neighborhood near me is Village Homes, which if you've never heard of it is also quite amazing liveable space. Here's an old film of it:
How would you prove he said this, when the old forums are gone.
I wouldn't buy a used car from the guy on the left, much less leave my banking system in his hands.
I saw that, and those people profiled were terrible with money to begin with and didn't save enough.
Therefore we should all clap and cheer when Joe HedgeFund takes all their money and uses it on hookers, blow, and buying Congress.
This is nothing new. There was a good Frontline episode "The Retirement Gamble" where they highlighted how much is skimmed out of everyone's retirement investments in fees and it's astoundingly high in many cases.
The man at Vanguard who pioneered the low-fee funds should be Knighted, or awarded, or something. Instead he's obscure and hardly anyone knows what kind of fees they actually pay and have any idea how much they are LOSING to fees over the course of 30 year. A few points here and there compounded over decades can mean you lost 30% or more of what you might have made.
Anytime some financial type asks me about do I need them to be my "advisor", I ask them if they will take personal FIDUCIARY RESPONSIBILITY. They say no, forget it. Then I know they are just after fees and avoiding accountability. We were all better off in the aggregate, with pensions like in grandpa's days, where the people running it were obligated to see to the longterm health of the fund for their pensioners. Instead everyone thinks they can gamble and hit it big, and odds are you can't.
Something SHOULD be done, before Wall Street's next big gamble blows up the economy and suddenly everyone is having to take in their destitute Baby Boomer parents who can't afford dogfood much less the dementia meds they need.
ISIS didn't attack the twin towers
Al Qaeda did it to attack Western Capitalist Dogs. ISIS is the redheaded stepchild of Al Qaeda. 2 big visible towers is more showy than some random medium-size bank building or a stock exchange floor.
Ronald Reagan was a supporter of Proposition 14. In 1964 Ronald Reagan stated in a press release as "an ardent supporter of Proposition 14, and later explained, “If an individual wants to discriminate against Negroes or others in selling or renting his home, he has a right to do so.”
Well that must be a mistake, or misattributed or something. Republicans would never admit to something like that in a press release, they'd only whisper it to each other using codewords.
A little thing on September 11th 2001 many have forgotten. There used to be these twin towers in downtown Manhattan.
Doing that again, would be pretty boring. They already launched permanent warfare with costs in the trillions and still mounting.
They just want to own every piece of information about you, nothing scary about that right?
I don't use Google, Google+, Gmail, or any of their other crap.
Oh and as an email admin who is forced to interact with their Google Apps for Education, their mail routing infrastructure is inferior and their "do no evil" attitude is a load of BS. Case in point an arbitrary change they've made the rest of the universe work around since 2012:
Why? Because why not! "We don't care, we don't have to. We're Google!"
I'm still waiting for YOU to dispute that those ships are sitting anchored off the coast....
Ships at anchor. Whoopty frickin do.
Can Call it Crazy still run down to Walmart in his Spandex and pick up a shopping cart full of tube socks? Yep.
Evidence is irrelevant to GOP voters. Unless he steps on his dick, I expect he'll be the candidate.
PMA is squeezing the union members by declining to pay premium shift rates and keep work to weekdays, no ship work on nights. This is making the congestion worse by the day
So congestion is also due to PMA deliberately cutting back hours, as retaliation.
Call it Crazy going to admit that? Nope.
Or they could get their head out of their ass and think for a second. You're aware that the US has lots of ports, right?
Then they'd have to decide if this is about money and "gettin 'er done", or the principle of crushing a union.
I think we know which it is.
When the products are already sitting on a anchored ship off the coast??? Are you REALLY that stupid??
I thought we already settled that.
CEO's are godlike geniuses, whose shoes the Morlocks are barely worthy to polish.
He should be able to pilot a ship into port, and push the buttons to run the cranes to unload it.
It's not like the 1800's where longshoreman actually had to be strong young men who carried heavy cargo on their backs.
