DaemonFCschestowitz_TR2, Here's an interesting measure of inflation.Jun 02 01:22
DaemonFCIn 2012, the cheaper end of a 20" box fan at Walmart was $13.88. The same box fan is now $24.88.Jun 02 01:23
DaemonFCSo those have about doubled in 10 years.Jun 02 01:23
DaemonFCI haven't found a single thing that indicates "2-3%" inflation. Whatever the government admits to, double or triple it and you'll be much closer.Jun 02 01:23
DaemonFCOne thing that dinosaur air conditioner does do pretty well is get humidity under control in here. I've found that on days where it's not that hot, or at night, I can just turn off the air conditioner. After a while, the dehumidifier, which has idled itself because it's in comfort mode, realizes the humidity is going up, and turns on.Jun 02 01:24
DaemonFCSo at night time when it gets a lot cooler anyway, that can take over and prevent the humidity from rising.Jun 02 01:25

schestowitz_TR2"The full scope of Gates’s giving to the news media remains unknown because the foundation only publicly discloses money awarded through charitable grants, not through contracts.

By the end of 2019, a spokesperson said, NPR had mentioned the foundation more than 560 times in its reporting, including 95 times on Goats and Soda, the outlet’s “global health and development blog,” which Gates helps fund. “Funding from corporate sponsors and philanthropic donors is separate from the editorial decision-making process in NPR’s newsroom,” the spokesperson noJun 02 01:58

schestowitz_TR2NPR does occasionally hold a critical lens to the Gates Foundation.

schestowitz_TR2"On the same day, the foundation appeared in another NPR headline: “Gates Foundation Says World Not on Track to Meet Goal of Ending Poverty by 2030.” That story cites only two sources: the Gates Foundation and a representative from the Center for Global Development, a Gates-funded NGO. The lack of independent perspectives is hard to miss. Bill Gates is the second-richest man in the world and might reasonably be viewed as a toteJun 02 01:59
schestowitz_TR2m of economic inequality, but NPR has transformed him into a moral authority on poverty. Jun 02 01:59
schestowitz_TR2Given Gates’s large funding role at NPR, one could imagine editors insisting that reporters seek out financially independent voices or include sources who can offer critical perspectives. (Many NPR stories on Gates don’t: here, here, here, here, here, here.) Likewise, NPR could seek a measure of independence from Gates by rejecting donations that are earmarked for reporting on Gates’s favored topics.Jun 02 01:59
schestowitz_TR2Even when NPR publishes critical reporting on Gates, it can feel scripted. In February 2018, NPR ran a story headlined “Bill Gates Addresses ‘Tough Questions’ on Poverty and Power.” The “tough questions” NPR posed in this Q&A were mostly based on a list curated by Gates himself, which he previously answered in a letter posted to his foundation’s website.

schestowitz_TR2"Writing in De Correspondent, freelance journalists Robert Fortner and Alex Park examined the limitations and inadvertent consequences of the Gates Foundation’s relentless efforts to eradicate polio. In HuffPost, the two journalists showed how Gates’s outsize funding of global health initiatives has steered the world’s aid agenda toward the foundation’s own goals (like polio eradication) and away from issues such as emergenJun 02 01:59

schestowitz_TR2"Fortner, who authored CJR’s 2010 story on Gates’s journalism funding, self-published a follow-up in 2016 that examined how Gates funding is not always disclosed in news articles, including fifty-nine news stories the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting funded in part with Gates’s money.

schestowitz_TR2"That is also the case for the journalism Bornstein and fellow SJN cofounder Tina Rosenberg produce for the New York Times. As contract writers for the “Fixes” opinion column, the two have favorably profiled Gates-funded education, agriculture, and global health programs over the years—without disclosing that they work for an organization that receives millions of dollars from Gates.

schestowitz_TR2"Bill Gates has shown how seamlessly the most controversial industry captain can transform his public image from tech villain to benevolent philanthropist. Insofar as journalists are supposed to scrutinize wealth and power, Gates should probably be one of the most investigated people on earth—not the most admired."Jun 02 02:02

schestowitz_TR2more so than s. koreanJun 02 11:12
DaemonFCMost likely.Jun 02 11:12
DaemonFCAnyway, Turkey has been having severe problems with inflation for a while now.Jun 02 11:12
DaemonFCWhen people don't trust that inflation will subside, they want more and more to no end and it ends up causing inflation.Jun 02 11:13
DaemonFCThe expectation breeds more.Jun 02 11:13
DaemonFCSince money has nothing backing it, then a currency freefall is possible. If people could convert USD or GBP into something solid, like gold or silver, than they'd be more likely to accept a flat value of them on an indefinite timeline because as long as the conversion rate for fiat money into hard and tangible assets that don't lose value remains the same, the currency remains worth about the same, with minor fluctuations based on the demand Jun 02 11:15
DaemonFCfor the guaranteed hard asset, but people have always been glad to take precious metals.Jun 02 11:15
DaemonFCSo you wouldn't have runaway inflation under a precious metals standard. Doesn't just have to be gold.Jun 02 11:15
DaemonFCThe US government "owns" a lot of gold. I say "owns" because they did everything short of digging it out of people's teeth during the Great Depression and ever since then they've let it sit there not being used for anything.Jun 02 11:16
DaemonFCThat's what government does. It destroys value by behaving in bizarre and unpredictable manners.Jun 02 11:17
DaemonFCEven with no hard asset backing the USD, you could get inflation under control in a few months if anyone trusted Congress and Biden to start spending responsibly starting soon.Jun 02 11:18
DaemonFCBut they don't. No reason to expect financial responsibility now when the whole thing just gets worse every year for over two decades now.Jun 02 11:18
DaemonFCThe whole thing just goes to this insane Keynesian Economics thing, which is ridiculous and has proven itself wrong so many times.Jun 02 11:20
DaemonFCPeople laugh at "Austrian Economics" or "Chicago Economics" (of Milton Friedman), but Keynes was the worst.Jun 02 11:20
DaemonFCProposing dumping inflationary money into the economy, and basically Keynesians believe it's not even important where it goes.Jun 02 11:21
DaemonFCPoliticians like it. "We're stimulating the economy." No, you aren't. Japan is 20 years ahead of you if you want to know where that's going.Jun 02 11:22
DaemonFC300% debt to GDP. No inflation adjusted gains in their stock indexes since 1990.Jun 02 11:22
DaemonFCKeynesian "stimulus" is like spinning your tires in the mud, getting nowhere, and then asserting that you're making progress becase the car is burning gas.Jun 02 11:23
DaemonFCIf any "Keynesian" can show me by which measure we're doing well because of it, then I'll gladly apologize.Jun 02 11:27

DaemonFCA man who has been deprived of his ability to work but who lives will be an ongoing burden on his comrades, plus he'll live and suffer instead of just dying.Jun 02 11:40
DaemonFCFew want to openly admit it, but maiming 10-20 of the enemy is worse for them than killing 5-6.Jun 02 11:42
DaemonFCOnce they put the 5-6 in the ground and write off what those people would have done for the rest of their lives, now they have to care for the injured.Jun 02 11:42
DaemonFCIn war, wounding enemy soldiers badly enough that the enemy has to slow down and deal with that, and then their country suffers indefinitely because so many went ahead and lived is a better strategy than going for body count.Jun 02 11:44
DaemonFCThe 2005 London bus bombings are a good example of why terrorism that kills a lot of people isn't very effective as a tool of harassment.Jun 02 11:45
DaemonFCIf most of them had lived and been badly wounded and had to go on disability for the rest of their lives, it would have hurt the nation more.Jun 02 11:45
DaemonFCThere's no evidence that simply using terror for its own sake works. If anything, it causes your enemy to become more unified and emboldened.Jun 02 11:46
DaemonFCIf you're going to be a belligerent, you need to cause drastic and ongoing harm that psychologically will affect their disposition, but more importantly, causes them to waste their own resources dealing with the mess.Jun 02 11:47
DaemonFCIf you can't keep such a campaign going, don't bother to start.Jun 02 11:47
DaemonFCAs soon as the London bus bombings are out of the news in a week, people will go back to talking about the Royal Family waving at football games.Jun 02 11:48
DaemonFCLike it never even happened.Jun 02 11:48
DaemonFCIf it starts becoming a process of attrition and there's no end in sight to it, then you can keep people afraid of their own shadow.Jun 02 11:49

She is almost 91 years old, and she lives in a really nice nursing hom.

DaemonFCThe EPA requires that they sample houses to make sure that the water is not corroding the service line and putting in too much lead, so cities instruct people to run the tap before collecting the samples. Because what that will do is get 90% of the lead out and cause fewer violating readings to report to the feds.Jun 02 18:34

DaemonFCGoing by what I was posting earlier.Jun 02 18:54
DaemonFCThose are the only two methods that work.Jun 02 18:54
DaemonFCIf you can't sustain a harassment campaign, you want something that surprises and shocks them so much that they become demoralized and give up quickly.Jun 02 18:55
DaemonFCBut the more you do that, the more likely it is to backfire, because they can become recalcitrant instead. More determined to fight you no matter what the cost.Jun 02 18:56
DaemonFCYou have to kind of get a feel for who they are and what they've done in the past.Jun 02 18:56
DaemonFCSome people will give up and become compliant/cut their losses (pushovers) and some people become more determined to send a message even if defeating you exacts a terrible cost on themselves.Jun 02 18:58

DaemonFCThe US eventually gave up in Afghanistan because the political cost was becoming too high. You can get away with squandering resources on wars you lost a long time ago in a democracy, sometimes.

schestowitz_TR2When Musk was busy lying about his "role" at paypalJun 02 22:10
DaemonFCWhen he bought it, he purchased the title "founder" from the actual founders and the contract says if they call themselves the founders of the company, he can sue them.Jun 02 22:10
DaemonFCWhen Musk was at PayPal, it reached into people's wallets and took the money.Jun 02 22:11
DaemonFCIt was illegal, but they needed funding and figured nobody would sue if the balance was small.Jun 02 22:11
buzzertwow! that's quite a claimJun 02 22:11
buzzertthe topic changed again also. i have trouble keeping up with you guysJun 02 22:12
DaemonFCI remember people saying not to use it because PayPal would reach in and keep amending the usage agreement to permit them to take it as "fees" for whatever reason.Jun 02 22:12

DaemonFCThey accept lower rates on mortgages because many people can't make it 30 years and then the bank keeps the money and the house and sells the house again and then sues you and gets more money.Jun 02 22:20
schestowitz_TR2they asured me there would be no hidden feesJun 02 22:20
schestowitz_TR2and then broke their promiseJun 02 22:21
schestowitz_TR2and the money was small enough for them to know I'd likely not challenge itJun 02 22:21
DaemonFCThe Profit isn't so much the interest, as it is that nobody but them usually ends up actually owning the house.Jun 02 22:21

DaemonFCGetting a house doesn't make you "free" from rent. It just means you pay some other asshole, and this one doesn't fix anything. And you may not be able to sell it, especially if you couldn't afford to fix it and now you owe more than what it's worth.Jun 02 22:25

DaemonFCYou may go "Oh a house payment is about what I pay in rent." And you might be right, but then you move in and you get PMI, and Interest, and Home Insurance, and Tax bills based on however much money the Democrats want to spend on giving people heroin needles that year.Jun 02 22:27

DaemonFCLandlords are bad, but they can actually be a lot less bad than "owning" a house, which you don't own.Jun 02 22:29
DaemonFCEven though they pay property tax, they can put a large building there that isn't wasting a bunch of land that's also being taxed.Jun 02 22:30
DaemonFCSo you should theoretically save money even though they pay tax and it's in the rent somewhere.Jun 02 22:30
DaemonFCWhen the county assessor figures up your tax bill omn your house, the empty land around the house that doesn't do anything except get you fined if you don't mow it often enough is about 20-30% of the bill, you know.Jun 02 22:31
DaemonFCschestowitz_TR2, I mocked the City of Waukegan on Facebook.Jun 02 22:31
DaemonFCThey said they were starting to enforce the "failure to mow your lawn" fees in May.Jun 02 22:32
DaemonFCI said, "How much would it be if you put in a tall grass nature preserve with plants and animal life native to Illinois? The Democrats like those. They're even letting weeds and tallgrass grow around the Health Department. At least when the mosquitoes start biting people, they'll have more work I guess."Jun 02 22:33

DaemonFCThat's not as horrible as Biden Gas.Jun 02 23:52
DaemonFCAn electric car is still a pretty bad deal, especially Tesla.Jun 02 23:52
DaemonFCBecause fuel is just one part of the cost of ownership, and batteries don't do especially well in extreme heat or cold.Jun 02 23:53

DaemonFCOverall, I've seen 3-4 year old Teslas that were in worse shape than the 2008 Buick I just bought.Jun 02 23:53
