    On the other hand this thread proves that the transmission of being stupid seems to have no barriers at all.

    Yep, starting with the healthcare professionals at the hospital, when they asked the guy for his S.S. # and he told them he was from Liberia and didn't have one, and was showing symptoms of the flu...

    But they didn't connect the dots....

    So, they give him a Rx for antibiotics (which DON'T work on viruses) and send him out on the street...

    Obamacare at it's finest hour!!

    How can a post like this get a dislike? It is obvious that the health officials were incompetent, sending him back home. In fact they should lose their jobs for not connecting the dots like in every industry not part of the FIRE and healthcare sectors.

    In general, if I wanted to be a recluse, I'd rather it be in a cheaper place like Des Moines Iowa, so that I could pay some $600/month on a 2 bedroom apartment downtown but earn $300K/yr as a dentist, working 70 hours per week, to maximize my earnings. And since being a dentist is really about being able to make conversation w/o getting grossed out at ppl's mouths, it's actually less taxing than being beaten down by crazy executives & directors.

    This is generally a valid point, but don't forget that it also depends on timing. There are plenty of long-time employees who made a significant extra amount of $$ with shares and options granted. If you joined your favorite tech co. now and discount further share price appreciation in light of an imminent correction, then your point holds.

    Surely a more useful government intervention than going after raw milk farmers and pot planters. You make these jokes but they actually play into the case that government over-regulates every little business posing no harm (due to crony capitalism) while they don't do jack shit on obvious health threats.

    Yeah That!!!

    Ok it is an "obvious health threat" what tools does the government bring to bear for this 1 case in Texas? Is it black helicopters and full bio-chem warfare suit time?

    They should have simply halted the direct flights from infected countries, funny enough like Trump suggested. He may be an asshole, but he was right on this one.

    Why don't we screen every passenger flying from West Africa? Why are we waiting until the symptoms develop?

    Sure, you tell the airlines that and watch them scream bloody murder about restrictions on free market travel.

    100K is not that much. 30K-50K just gets you a wedding-dinner plus ceremony at a winery in the east bay, depending on the amount of guests. Probably as overpriced as bay area shacks.

  • On 28 Sep 2014 in Finally the truth about the AIG bailout, mell said:

    Crime/fraud on an unprecedented scale and crony capitalism? Say it ain't so!

    No shit sherlock, drunken Keynesian crony fiat printing/spending has its consequences.

    Teabaggers & Randists.

    You seem to have a strange fascination for them, also known as Wasserman-Schultz-syndrome.

  • On 24 Sep 2014 in Gallup: Americans say third political party is needed, mell said:

    thunderlips11 says

    Which party is for rolling back Free Trade, engagement with Russia, a smaller military, and reducing the Police State?

    Libertarians. 3 out of 4 should be good enough for ya ;)

  • On 24 Sep 2014 in How the Media Treats Elite Deadbeats - Rob is a first-class smart guy...., mell said:

    Oh and one more thing, I thought that gay chinese platinum shitting chindians are standing by ready to whatever fiat it takes to stake out their part of Stuyvesant town as this is - as we all learned on patnet - prime coastal territory! Wait where are they? Anyone? Oh well, let's try again when the FIRE/REIT scam is over and house prices have corrected at least another 25%-50%. Or maybe The Fed can print another couple of trillions to keep that shit afloat ;)

  • On 24 Sep 2014 in How the Media Treats Elite Deadbeats - Rob is a first-class smart guy...., mell said:

    Sure, that puts small/regular deadbeats into perspective, but it also sets a bad example for them, why should they care if crony capitalism is running rampant in this administration and the rule of law has been abolished.

    That being said, the entities invested are part of the problem:

    "Florida anticipated a return of almost 14 percent on its investment, according to the memo. Calpers, the California state pension fund, projected a 13.5 percent rate of return on its $500 million investment, according to a document provided by agency spokesman Clark McKinley."

    Are you shitting me? Anticipated 14% return? Sure thing, Jimmy, then CALPERS turned around and "guaranteed" (which is really promised backed by nothing) their employees 8-12% payraises or retirement appreciation per year and now they are crying wolf? Don't invest in obvious crony capitalist scams and scam sectors such as REITS and the FIRE sector in general, do some DD, then go back and "promise" your employees jack shit but tell them an average return of 3%-5% should be doable.

    Put those assholes in prison and the Calpers/Floridian state board management with them, zero loss for society. Otherwise we will hear the resident Keynesians on board croaking and whining again that they need moar QE and bailouts for their REIT scams because the double digit returns didn't materialize and we need to avoid da next great depreschan!

  • On 23 Sep 2014 in Iwog May Just Be On To Something After All!, mell said:

    Wouldn't mind if we actually if we could just get away from the swearing, self-righteous and holier-than-thou attitude and discuss facts. Facts like the net income of the wage-slaves is severely decimated by Obama's disastrous fiscal policies and the purchasing power of the dollar destroyed by the Fed's disastrous crony capitalist Keynesian wealth transfer policies. That fixation on "das racis!" and "stoopid conservative!" is so counterproductive to a fact-based discussion. Anybody who thinks taxing the hard working successful bourgeoisie making 200K+ to pay for the wealth transfer to the 0.1% and 47% needs to have their head checked. Even worse if they think they are doing good by advocating these shite policies. Fact is the Romney tax plan is looking darn good now and you don't have to be a conservative to admit that ;)

  • On 23 Sep 2014 in Inflation or Deflation? What's Next, mell said:

    Continued stagflation.

  • On 21 Sep 2014 in Instead of QE, the Fed Could Have Given $56,000 to Every Household in America, mell said:

    iwog says

    TARP and QE are totally unrelated and had nothing whatsoever in common with each other. By calling TARP QE, you just prove that you have no interest in being accurate.

    Both programs were printing money and giving it to failed and/or criminal enterprises, saddling future generations with the debt for that heist.

  • On 21 Sep 2014 in Does marijuana cause psychosis?, mell said:

    Almost any drug can cause psychosis and other side effects if used regularly and/or larger amounts. mainly for those with predispositions. These studies are utterly useless and a waste of money, they should rather focus on its medicinal properties.

    HydroCabron says

    The same morons who believe in Austrian economics believe that mosquitoes (or "Mosquito" if you're a random capitalizer) spread ebola.

    Coincidence?

    According to current research there haven't been any indications, but the complete list of potential animal hosts is not known yet (since the virus has been fairly elusive prior to this large outbreak). It could happen on very rare occasions that haven't been recorded yet.

    She got a degree and it led to a 14 dollar per hour job. Now, either the college is gouging,

    Fuck yeah the college is gauging. You are better off opening a dog walking business in a hipster CA town or teaching yourself coding skillz than going to any of these rip-offs. Until people stop going for this tuition scam, until people do not offer 50% of the asking price for a house at the max., until people refuse to buy 2 year iFuckYou phone contract, unttil then nothing will change.

    As a result, there is much moral outrage towards prostitution, yet family-destroying divorces are allowed and encouraged.

    Very true.

  • On 18 Sep 2014 in The folks is starting ta smells the coffee., mell said:

    More and more people of all ages are striking up conversations about Patrick's 'Debt is Slavery' car-sticker, agreeing with its basic premise, some admitting to being former debt-o-holics, high-fiving on being debt-free and generally waking up and smelling the foul stench of the Fed counterfeiting, Keynesian deficit-spending nightmare that's crushing the middle-class. Don't know if a momentum will come out of this, but it's a start and I'll take it. Oh, and Audit the Fed passed and is back.
