Were they the people that supported the Iraq War or opposed it? Did they support the bombing of Libya or were they against it?


Hey, Bush can suck both of our Dicks, now what else do you want from me?


I'm just lamenting the fact that there are precious few "patriots". There wasn't any difference between Obama and Bush.

I'm pointing out there is no possibility of changing our government through any legal means. We will have to have a literal revolution to fix this nation. Nobody in our upper levels of government will EVER go to jail, unless there's a literal revolution.

And there are no patriots. So, there will be no revolution. People don't even dare to complain about the situation or are entirely unaware of the situation. Your kids are going to be slaves, nearly everybody's kids will be slaves.

Right, the raging pandemic that has killed 257,016 (officially at the time I write this) out of a country of 300 million people. Why, this super deadly "disease" has killed full 0.0778% of the population. Wow, that's almost 1 out of 1000 people!!

Oh, and the average age of a victim that died form it? That's 75, 3 years old than the life expectancy of 72.



Yep. Stupidest pandemic ever. Most people tolerate this killer disease without issues. Some very unhealthy and/or very old people die from it.
So let’s eliminate everyone’s freedom and businesses and jobs and housing in a futile attempt to “stop” the virus!

Of course most of the oldsters are good with this stupid stupid plan because they don’t need to work and it keeps the grandkids from coming over. Also these are narcissistic assholes who would make the world a better place by leaving it.

I do not know any people who are grandparents who do not want to see the grandkids. No saying some do not want to see them, but I think it is odd.

And have you played with the new Apple Silicon Mac


Got one and looks so cool with the new processors, it can handle more load than the old ones. It comes with integrated AI and graphics processors along with new ARM processor. It could boot more profits.

As for renters: Landlords aren't going to kick out renters if they have nobody to fill the vacancy. Why would a landlord kick out a renter and then leave the place vacant. Better to keep the renter and hope to resume collecting rent when the covid is over. Maybe they could even collect some past-due rent. In fact, wait until the economy pick up and you could get a new renter; use that as leverage to have the current renter pay back rent.


Do you know how difficult it is to evict a renter in the SF Bay Area? Especially long term renters now that that prop passed?

I have been living in the same apt for 7 years. About 4 months ago got a letter from the property management stating the new law means we can't be evicted w/o some serious cause. Not paying the rent could be that cause; but someone can drag it out and out. We routinely get pamphlets at our door from law firms that specialize in dragging it out while the tenant can save the rent $$ for several months.

Then there is the expense of it all on the landlord's end with the lawyer fees.

That's why I'd buy only rental properties in landlord friendly states. You know, the ones where you can go from eviction notice to sheriff showing up at the door to kick them out and throw their crap out on the street in about a month or so -- all without going to court (filing in court but no hearings, etc.).

Trump might change the conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac before leaving. I really want these vacuum cleaners away from accessing government resources.

Happens way more than you think as CCP says. Sometimes it's the parents keeping the grandkids away and other times it's the grandparents only doing token holiday visits and that's it.

I'll put it this way without going into detail, my MIL is not fit to watch my kids or be around them. So we avoid her at all cost. She's not allowed to watch our kids overnight. Some families are tight, or look tight from the outside looking in. Most aren't.

What it looks like so far is that prices are falling in the denser cities and prices are increasing in the suburbs. A result of telework opportunities. I wonder if now is the time to buy some rural but beautiful land (waterfront or mountain/valley view) in anticipation of teleworker demand and widespread 5g.


Lot of small towns and exurbs are suddenly experiencing strains in providing services as people flock to these Zoom towns as they are called.

That is why Pelosi has been coy about "the COVID bailout" as it is about helping those states like Illinois


90% of that problem is unfunded pension debts.

I can't help wondering if the whole damn thing was designed not to just swing the election, but to try to get us to permanently stay at home, for the good of "the environment".


Are you just figuring out this now???

It mostly is pensions for sure. The lost revenue from use taxes is huuuuuuuuuuuge though. Sales, amusement, airport landing fees, port fees, gas taxes, etc. and in many cases income taxes for the states that have that shit. Much of this stuff has been at 25% of revenue generation for 4-5 months minimum. Income taxes will likely be down 5-10% in most states that have them.

The use taxes are the worst though. They cannot be made up. Muni's budgeted for X, Y and Z and X may have gone to zero in the case of amusement taxes. No sports, concerts or large gatherings. Toll roads budgeted that a certain number of cars would come through and it fell off to nothing practically at the beginning.

The key question is are layoffs the answer or increasing fees? Both would suck, but I predict taxes, fees are going up here soon in a lot of places. Especially if we stay closed down to some extent.

don't see why.


You see, when plebeians move around by car, train, bus, or plane, they pollute Jeff Bezos' personal planet.

Also, the plebeians breathe too much, expelling carbon dioxide with every breath. Plebeian breathing must be stopped. A "vaccine" seems likely to help with that.

I'd be okay with that kind of defunding. Pick a percentage off your gross pay and invest in a 401k like the rest of us. No more pensions that are guaranteed and unrealistic for the years served and the amount put in.

Here is what is going to happen. They'll meet all or most of the pension obligations while cutting services. They'll freeze or reduce hirings and apply attrition, that is replace 2 retiring workers with 1 worker. They'll cut maintenance on local parks and let the grass grow longer. They'll reduce library hours. They'll increase fees.

Yeah, we've experienced that in CA over the past 12 years. Funny they talk about defunding police. We already did that. I rarely see a cop when I'm speeding around. My radar detector is nearly useless now.

I wonder if it'll be legal in the state I'll be moving to? Damn thing won't die. It's an escort passport 9500IX. Has a database, gps and 'learns' the false signals so when you drive around it's super quiet. Entirely different than what I had in my hot rod in the 80s.

I can't remember the last time that thing chirped.
