    I think we’re going to see four big pushes in vax status over the next few months:

    1) 12-15 – Expect a broad % increase as we near start of the school year.
    2) 18-29 – Expect a smaller % increase as we near start of the college year (as this is a very large segment).
    3) All Ages – Will see rates increase as a result of full vaccination approvals – expected in 2-3 months – assumption is that this both builds confidence, as well as increases employer or other vax mandates.
    4) 5-11 – New age range added as Pfizer vaccine is provided EUA, expected late fall, early winter.

    My brother in law traded in his year old pickup for a brand new, higher model, and did really, really well. I hate my little Honda, and my dealer made me a similar offer on a trade. Given the shitty CVT reliability, almost seems worth it to me (even though they extended the warranty on it to 7 years/150k). I got 5 years in already, 35k miles. New trans costs $5k, and you’ll only be guaranteed 3 years. Word on the street is the replacements are failing at the same rate (design flaw). Bite the bullet?

  4. leftwing says:

    I don’t know…intend to look at my Wrangler again, just assumed the gain in trade-in would be outpaced by rise in new net price plus the hassle of ordering/waiting on new…not so sure now….

    Although I’m almost certainly guaranteed first-model-year reliability problems with a Ford.

  6. grim says:

    I do, it’s not a wholly unexpected move.

    Remember, Cisco owns Webex, and Cisco has a big telephony/unified communications business. LogMeIn has a similar arrangement, though focused a bit on IT support. Avaya has been pushing into unified communications as a way to remain relevant.

    It’s a WFH/Remote workforce play. Five9 is a long time in the industry, one of the first to cloud, but they’ve been losing to many of the big players, and the up and coming disruptors.

    My view is this is to expose the far larger Zoom customer base to the Five9 product suite. Given Five9 exposure in the contact center market, I don’t think the reverse is as big as some might expect (contact centers don’t use zoom, outside of areas like agent training, etc). Your typical office worker probably used zoom a lot, and their phone a lot. PBX -> Cloud is the bigger story. Giving every remote worker a cell phone doesn’t work operationally, or financially. Cisco had a lock on this through the pandemic.

  8. Walking says:

    Grim, are you saying the Honda CVT is bad design? I just switched to a Honda Accord after being a GM/ford guy. I generally get 250k out of a gm engine on an original tran. I was hoping the same for my 2017 accord. But if I could get a premium rate for a 4 year old Accord right now I would probably switch.

    I know the reviewers always claim the fit and finish or Japanese cars is great, but the steering wheel buttons on my accord are already wearing off in year 4. I sometimes wonder if the prior owner rolled it back when returning the lease. In comparison my 13 year old Ford is still ticking at 183k, though Im no longer doing maint on it.

  9. BRT says:

    My 2012 Honda Civic has 240k on it. It hasn’t given me any problems. It’s a manual. But I’ve owned it the entire time. I think, that is likely to have it last more than one that’s changed hands. My limited time working in a garage showed me how much people don’t take care of cars they leased new when they have no intention of buying. More often than not, they didn’t give a crap about changing the oil or even toping it off.

  10. grim says:

    Not sure if it’s something unique to the HR-V CVT, but they issued a “recall” which is just a software update to change how it operates (many think this is just a kick-the-can change). The metal belt falls apart and fills the trans with metal, until ultimately the belt disintegrates. There is no repair once this happens, it’s a replacement with a new trans. Lots of 2016-2020 owners having issues, with many failing around the 100-125k mark. The recall process has them check the trans for bits of metal belt.

    Lots of owners paid out of pocket for the fix because of the 5y/60000 powertrain warranty.

  11. Hold my beer says:

    We have a pathfinder with a cvt. First transmission had to get replaced at 29k miles. Will not get another cvt.

  12. Juice Box says:

    Zoom is buying Five 9 for their 3rd party integration, they have lots of pre-built integration experience with CRM products into Salesforce, ServiceNow, Microsoft, Oracle, and Zendesk and others as well as custom. They really can quickly roll out integration to existing systems, as we had done it a few years ago, no huge tech integration hurdles like some other systems. That may be more valuable than Five9’s existing 2000 customers.

    Companies started using Zoom quickly during the pandemic, their revenue skyrocketed 90% in 2020. Maybe it was the Brady Bunch look and feel combined with the freemium business model of 100 users for free up to 40 minutes that made it take off. I really don’t think it was much better than the competitors BUT free is always better, combined with quick and easy to roll out which is not the case for other products.

    Hope they continue to do well, otherwise I am selling…

  13. BidenIsTheGOAT says:

    I would never buy Nissan period. Two family members with total trannie failures. One sentra and one pathfinder both around 50k miles.

    Nissan offered to “split” the pathfinder replacement for 1600 out of pocket. I’m sure if you could find the correct document that’s close to what the parts cost. They aren’t paying anything.

    Eh, I wouldn’t put that much weight on this. The integrations aren’t all that extensive, and having pre-built CRM adapters is becoming table stakes, not a differentiator. inContact, Genesys, Talkdesk, 8×8, etc. Five9 was never looked at as the most flexible/extensible in the space.

    Amazon is poised to shake this space up tremendously with Amazon Connect.

  16. Juice Box says:

    re Ford Maverick.. Hybrid? I would pass as well because it’s really an electric ​car with a bed. Unibody design, short bed cannot hold much and the hybrid engine is the similar one used in the Escape and the Fusion Hybrid and Toyota Prius. The electric motor runs high gear all the time for city driving via the e-CVT transmission and no AWD until maybe and it’s a big maybe next year.

    John Kelly’s videos are an excellent introduction at the component level for these e-CTV transmisions, across brands
    they really are all the same, he has a ton of video’s on this type of hybrid.

    They never built enough housing because it wasn’t worth the risk. They bet that millennials wouldn’t want to buy houses and were dead wrong.

    Car manufacturers bet that people would not demand new cars. So they cut their orders and ate it hard with the chips.

    Grim – It’s all in the M&A pitch deck. ZOOM’s customers were complaining about something ZOOM does not do which is integration.

    Grim on used cars . . .

    I don’t follow it closely, but I thought the optimal strategy right now is that if one can (1) afford new; and (2) has any intention of getting rid of their current car, then they should buy the new one and sell their current car. From what I understand, new car prices have not moved dramatically like used have. The only problem is that you might be on a waiting list for your new car, because new car supply is low. Maybe someone who is more attuned to the auto markets can chime in, but my understanding is that the spread between new and used has never been thinner.

  20. grim says:

    Who cares about pitch decks? I’m an end-user, thousands of seats. This is a space I know very, very well. Five9 was dropping the ball. They were one of the first to market, they could have dominated. They did not. Five9 fell in the last Gartner MQ. This is becoming an incredibly crowded space. Example, Talkdesk came out of nowhere to grab a leader quadrant ranking, and they are plowing revenue back into R&D at an incredible pace. They’ll be the functionality leader by next year, but it’s irrelevant, because they don’t have enterprise recognition.

    I am also incredibly aware of Zoom integration capabilities at the API level. Yes, lacking. But nobody is really looking to integrate Zoom into their CRM platforms outside maybe some edge cases around inside sales. CRM integration is incredibly simple these days. Zoom gains nothing from any Five9 in this space.

  21. The Great Pumpkin says:

    Crushed,

    Depends on the car. Some new cars are going way over sticker. It’s a supply and demand issue. Too much demand, not enough supply, so capitalism goes to work rewarding the highest bidder with said vehicle. Capitalism will then overproduce eventually chasing the money and shoot the price down.

  22. Juice Box says:

    Once the chip shortage is over won’t there be a glut of new cars? This new car shortage like the lumber shortage and the toilet paper shortage shall pass. Seems the automakers are stockpiling allot of nearly finished vehicles. There are no deals to be had, used cars prices up 45%, new cars selling at sticker or more. I would wait another year, until all that inventory hit’s the dealer lots.

  23. Phoenix says:

    Juice,
    I posted some videos like that from Weber State. You watch them too?
    Guy explains things so well. The Toyota Hybrid trans is a CVT, but not in the conventional way, there is no belt, all “shifting” if you want to call it that is by an electric motor spinning a planet gear assembly at different speeds, changing the output. It’s really all gear input output. It’s quite reliable.

  24. The Great Pumpkin says:

    With housing, seems like builders are never going to overproduce. It seems like they know better now (how many times did builders lose it all), but let’s see if greed takes over and they start chasing that quick money. If the price keeps going up, eventually they will act on human nature…let’s see.

  25. Juice Box says:

    Wall St seems to agree with you Grim stock is down a bit.

  26. Libturd says:

    Have an Investment Club Member who was a Nissan car salesman at the Route 46 Little Falls dealership. That’s the one that flooded and cars were floating into the Passaic River. He quit to become a loan officer when corporate stopped shipping enough cars. He said in June, they got 500 cars. In July 300 cars. August delivery will be 50. How do fifteen salesman make a living selling 50 cars with an average commission of $500 a car in a month? That’s $1,666 per person.

    I would definitely wait for the car glut to buy.

    Both of our Mazdas are still repair free. Mine is at 98K. Gator’s is approaching 120K.

    Quick question. I stupidly placed my car keys on Gator’s hood when I went for a swim in my super modded Intex pool. She drove away before I remembered and they are gone. Has anyone replaced keys at an alternative to a dealership for Mazda wants close to $400 for my car ALONE. Gators is self-programmable so I can get a key from China for $20. Mine requires Mazda or second party programming. It takes 30 seconds, for which they charge you $400 (if you are lucky). Gator still has her copy of both car’s keys. Anyone have any experience with this? Lots of internet sites that claim to do it, but directions and price vary greatly.

  27. leftwing says:

    TY all on the Zoom/Five9 replies.

    Chi, times like these I may do quick daily hit and runs through M/W/F zero DTE SPY (or SPX if in the taxable account) and on the off days just straight up futures.

    Not doing any of that right now, pretty well balanced delta in portfolio working as it should. Across all six accounts (trading+investment, in both IRAs and taxable) I’m down $92 right now, lol. That portfolio balance hurt me recently….left 2x gains in AAPL on the table last week due to a 145C write and a long put spread, but overall keeping me steady. My AAPL debit spread is 3x the number of my underlying so between that and the call write I’m protected into the high 120s. She breaks that level I’ll close it all out except the underlying and start writing puts in the teens not caring if I get assigned.

    My version of portfolio management. Feels like white water rafting sometimes but seems to work.

    My biggest bummer, I was going to throw a WTF lotto ticket out there in the form of an AMZN weekly put on the off chance Bezos goes boom but as a short dated long option wanted to wait right before launch, ie. today. Missed a nice window for that with the movement today lol.

    Wait a bit, post a sign, throw something on NextDoor. You may get them back.

    Happens all the time…I did it with my mobile on the bumper (returned) and a someone else in town I know did it with his keys. Took him two weeks but were returned. Think he was tracked down by a gym card on there.

  29. Phoenix says:

    LW,
    Posted a thanks for you, it went on yesterday’s blog.

    As for the other comments, imagine leaving your child on the roof and driving off.

    Keys are replaceable. I try now to never place anything on the outside of a car for just this reason, or if I would have to, put it under the wiper blades.

  30. Nomad says:

    Lib,

    Check your auto policy. You may have key replacement coverage.

  31. Libturd says:

    Thanks for all the advice. I don’t usually place keys on my car. My detached garage door key is was on the chain and I mowed the lawn on Saturday morning. It was so hot, when I finished mowing the lawn, I jumped directly into the pool and completely forgot about the keys which I would typically put back in my pocket after I mowed the lawn. While floating in the pool, Lisa drove my kid to hockey practice. I still am mad at myself.

  32. Juice Box says:

    Lib those keys are probably at one of the nearest corners when she turned the car, especially one where you need to accelerate. Get on your bicycle and look around.

  33. Libturd says:

    I did. Someone definitely picked them up. Was a large keychain. Popular road to walk.

  37. Walking says:

    Lib, happened to me as well, keys on the car to remove the kid from the car seat. Luckily I live in Bergen County, keys returned to the police station, officer called Shop Rite for address of the club card on the key chain.

    I know Willowbrook mall had a Key FOb guy that made one last year for a Mercedes my friend had, it was a 2006 model. I would think if the guy made one for a Mercedes he could get a keyfob to work for a Mazda,

  38. Bystander says:

    Hmm, timely post. My 2014 Nissan Quest with 79k , just recently had this code pop up. It just replaced a wheel bearing ($450) a week ago so thought just reset the code. I know close to zilch about CVT other than never should have bought it. Code has not come back in three days of driving. Any advice?

    P0868: Transmission Fluid Pressure Low

  42. leftwing says:

    I have a watchlist that’s 81 names now…all names I know, it’s fluid, there are additions and deletions but basically all have weekly option series, have liquid options, and are meaningful companies.

    I’m fundamentally anchored with a view toward fairly common technicals. When either of those two get out of line, or around events where shares may get over/undersold, I’ll hop in based on volatility.

    The exact trade is dictated by the pricing on the ground and the resultant probabilities, I’ve probably done nearly every type of option trade out there.

    This is a bit rare for me, hopping in on put writes before earnings. That can be asking for trouble but they don’t report until Thurs. The play is off the volatility pop with the share price decline and a healthy decay on the option premium which have me targeting an overnight trade…basically throwing those three in the pot and stirring if the shares repair only 40 cents tomorrow, vol comes in only ten points (which would still have it at 99 percentile), and with one day’s decay in premium the option price would decline by 0.25…..basically gives me 50% overnight and I’m out.

    Last key point is trade management, I need to be able to see mitigation if she moves against me…on this one I’ve traded it frequently recently so I’m comfortable with the shares and if she continues to decline into earnings I’ll close the current strike/expiry and write something a little further out for a credit on wed afternoon. Plus, I only went in for half of what i normally would in case the market (or the stock ahead of earnings) decides to dump tomorrow.

  43. leftwing says:

    Also don’t forget, “I think as soon as selling volume abates your hedger counterpart will be tossing away his insurance” means big gains for me…..insurance (option) premium goes away = $$$ since by writing I’m short the (higher) premium today and closing it with the lower premium he’s tossing away.

    Most cars you can program from one key and the car. Some need a tech device, some dont. Its the luck off the draw on that one. There should be a reprogramming video for your car on You Tube. Don’t forget you will have to lasercut the key blank. That will probably run you $50-60.

    Personally I would avoid the Maverick. Its way underpowered. Base towing is 2000lbs and the tow package takes it to 4000lbs. My old minivan towed 3500lbs.

    My old van was traded on Saturday when Mrs Fab picked up her new truck. That F150 Hybrid rocks. 3.5l V6 Twin Turbo into a 10spd Tran. It does 0-60 in 6 seconds and we got 25MPG on the way home. The dealership honored the deal we had when we placed the order 3 months ago, so we were well under sticker. They lowballed the trade-in, but there was 2k Ford trade -in cash to offset, so we both got what we needed. I don’t have the hassle of Private sale to squeeze some more, they’ll make it on the trade. Overall very happy.

    The dealership lot was empty. They had base level F150s Lincoln Aviators and E Mustangs. The cars out front were parked diagonal to fill up the space. There was one Bronco that was racking up demo miles. All the rest of the lot was used. Where my 10yo van would have immediately been sent to auction, it is now on their website.

  64. Phoenix says:

    Lib,
    Thanks for the translate. The belts are the problem with CVTs.
    But there is an exception.
    Hybrid CVTs. They don’t use a belt. Some I believe don’t even have a clutch pack-the part that tends to wear. But even those are better than belts.
    So even though it’s a CVT, its quite reliable.

    In other news, the gall of this woman. Typical religious type. Cheats, then sues for more money.

    That 95% of observations will fall within those bands?

    An outstanding call would be one that is correct and OUTSIDE the two standard deviation band.

    I get that some people don’t get along but the American legal system is where the problem resides.

    There was an article recently in the paper about a young boy who was beaten by his father and somehow DYFS and judges missed it. I wonder if this kid would still be alive had DYFS not been overloaded with cases of lying women who just want to get full custody. It’s a game they play along with their attorneys and I believe this adds to the amount of mistakes that affect children who are actually abused.

  70. Phoenix says:

    It would be up to the district attorneys of the counties to actually step up and do their jobs. I met a judge who told me he actually requested for district attorneys to do this. He said that if 10% of the cases were prosecuted and this was shared on social media and the papers he believed it would tamper this behavior.

    He said no district attorney chose to bother.

    Short answer, no. I don’t ‘cry’ about anything financial, I trade the market in front of me.

    Longer answer, your reply is asinine. Totally ignores the topic which is ‘predicting’ something that has a 95%+ chance of occurring is not fcuking rocket science…..it’s the simple common sense you are so painfully lacking.

    And, btw, in case you haven’t figured out the basic relationship between rates and long duration assets it was the totally and entirely forecast uptick in rates in Feb that allowed you to buy ARKK at the all time high…nice job, TopTick.

    Not withstanding their denominators being wrong, the vaccines are continuing to prove their effectiveness at minimizing illness/death. With 34 deaths among fully vaccinated, without knowing other facts about the deceased (and an accurate denominator), it makes me wonder if they died from Covid or with Covid.

  77. grim says:

    With 34 deaths among fully vaccinated, without knowing other facts about the deceased (and an accurate denominator), it makes me wonder if they died from Covid or with Covid.

    This is a good point, but again the governor focuses on the wrong data point.

    What’s the number and percentage of unvaccinated people getting sick and dying.

    Look, I get it, when I put the sales hat on, the goal is to flip the negative into a positive and frame it as an opportunity.

    In this case, we need to focus on the negative. Saying 34 vaccinated people died? That just feeds the anti-vax narrative, because you know what, 34 dead people is a lot of dead people.

  81. BidenIsTheGOAT says:

    However 99.9% is a bullshlt meaningless number pulled from mid air. No one knows how many vaccinated people have contracted covid in nj.

    The vaccine never prevented covid contraction so at best the vaccine reduced spread. The question now is whether delta actually produces more symptomatic cases or whether the vaccine effectiveness wanes quickly, particularly in vulnerable people.

    It’s another question that no one knows the answer to.

  82. Juice Box says:

    Branson’s VSS Unity spaceplane is a better system in my humble opinion. No parachutes needed as it glides down to earth, no parachutes, and no need to have landing thrusters and a crush ring bumpers (like a crush zone on a car) on the bottom of the Blue Origin capsule.

    Bezos team did a test of the crush ring with one parachute missing, landing with only two….it did crush down a bit about an inch with 4 more to spare before well you need new spine.

  84. The Great Pumpkin says:

    Obviously, everyone is built differently. The vaccine doesn’t work on everyone that would mean it is 100% effective and no vaccine is 100% because some people’s bodies are weak and they are f’ed. Evolution said f’k you to them.

  85. The Great Pumpkin says:

    Look what happens with no vaccines. Yet, entitled Americans don’t appreciate what they have.

    “Sixteen months ago, Mr. Kgoale lived in a rented two-bedroom house and had a steady cleaning job, while his wife worked in a call center. South Africa’s first wave of Covid-19 infections took the lives of his mother-in-law and grandmother. The second cost him his job and then his home. The third destroyed his efforts to start a new business. “I came to Johannesburg 21 years ago from the north, full of hope,” he said. “Now we have nothing left but anger.”
    Wave after wave of coronavirus is pummeling South Africa’s fragile economy and its largely unvaccinated population, creating a spiral of death, lockdowns and anger that has fueled the country’s worst rioting since the collapse of white minority rule in 1994. At least 215 people died in the violence across South Africa’s two most populous provinces, and more than 3,400 have been arrested. While the looting had quieted by Monday, the situation remains tense in parts of the country.”

  86. The Great Pumpkin says:

    Why do you think the govt tries to get people to stop smoking, exercise, and eat healthy? To lower the cost of long term healthcare. Why do you think this same govt wants you to get vaccinated for Covid? To help you and reduce long term healthcare costs and keep our economy going by keeping life normal

    Simple as that. Just what I believe. Maybe I’m wrong. It just seems like it’s in the interest of govt to help you and not hurt you. Why would you want to hurt your population and drive up long term costs in your economy that take away from investment in innovation?

  87. The Great Pumpkin says:

    Or better yet, why would you want to hurt a paying long term tax payer by turning them from a producer to a taker. Why would you want this for your entire population if vaccines are indeed dangerous and you are purposefully trying to hurt them.

  104. BidenIsTheGOAT says:

    With regard to Fauci and the credibility gap, the left did it to themselves. They decided hat Fauci could be a political weapon against trump. He has no credibility except political reliability which is meaningless. And now they are stuck with him. His role now is sideshow clown.

  105. BidenIsTheGOAT says:

    Better get your booster shot pumpy or you njea bosses are going to put you in their black book.

  106. Juice Box says:

    Pumps – Politicians won’t point fingers at themselves so they blame social media and not the failure of the varies politicians across the local, state and federal governments. Some politicians were even panning the vaccine and they did not trust it well before well they won the election, then they were quick to skip the line on everyone else. It’s also not all social media, some people also just don’t give a crap or are simply scared of needles.

    Here are some stats on the unvaccinated in the five boroughs of NYC, where they now have to campaign door to door because millions on New Yorkers have not shown up at vaccination centers even the ones setup in Subway stations.

    Asian age 18+ unvaccinated 208,095
    African American 18+ unvaccinated 918,238
    Hispanic age 18+ unvaccinated 889,230
    White age 18+ unvaccinated 1,049,489

    Some MSM is now telling us that only deplorables republican-voters, and right-wing media pundits are raising doubts about the vaccine. I don’t think those New Yorkers are following those types of people in the MSM cable news or social media, they simply don’t give a crap and have to be bribed with cash or eventually detained by a vaccination squad one day and injected against their will like a child.

  107. leftwing says:

    Agree on Fauci. Feel sorry because he seems like a pleasant old man….but he brought it on himself…..didn’t have the spine to stand up to Trump, got run over by him. Left came on board, saw the lack of spine, showed him a little thigh and boob, and he couldn’t hop in the back seat of their car quickly enough.

    Neat feat, blowing your credibility on both sides of the political spectrum within 18 months.

  108. BidenIsTheGOAT says:

    I’m not nearly as kind to Fauci.

    He’s part of a rogue medical industrial complex. Was using intermediaries to perform banned research. He possibly contributed to the pandemic. He’s been performing smoke scenes and coverups the entire time.

    He uses poltical and media allies to silence dissent. Making accusations of “disinformation” and “science denial” against anyone who challenges his narrative. His lockdowns did more damage than good. Meanwhile he does all the same things.

    He’s quite possibly going to go down as an all time Villain in this countrys history.

  109. The Great Pumpkin says:

    “Another day, another stock market high. Rinse, repeat, and remember to thank your favorite monetary and fiscal authorities for creating the optimal conditions for this record-smashing rally. Ultralow interest rates and ultrahigh spending by the Federal Reserve and the federal government helped the U.S. economy not only survive the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, but also thrive in its near aftermath. Whether this tsunami of money is too much of a good thing is another matter—one of many that the members of the Barron’s Roundtable take up with their customary candor and zest in this midyear investment update.

    Several themes surfaced in the 2021 midyear Roundtable, conducted by phone in the past few weeks. Our stock-picking savants consider the market pricey, in some cases stupefyingly so. They’re also worried about nontransitory inflation, and generally see the 10-year Treasury yield heading toward 2%, notwithstanding its recent retreat. Yet, they are still finding plenty of bargains—in technology, healthcare, retailing, manufacturing, media, and more.

  112. Fast Eddie says:

    Here Tony, sign this…Here Tony, say this….

    The same with O’Biden. “Say this Joe, sign this Joe, come over here Joe.” The left has a brilliant plan; prop a muppet up to tell the low information masses what they want to hear while implementing their agenda behind the curtain. It’s why the Republicans struggle; they’re stubborn, strong-willed and believe in implementing something tangible, whether it works or not. If they want to get elected in bigger numbers, they need to campaign strictly on promises and symbols.

  113. BRT says:

    Fauci is on record flip flopping or lying about:

    1. The initial danger of the virus. He downplayed it as late as the end of Feb,
    2. The usefulness of non n95 masks
    3. The origin of the virus
    4. The effectiveness of natural immunity from prior infection
    5. The NIH funding of gain of function research through proxies

    He’s a political hack disguised as a disease guru. If you put him in front of a panel of real scientists, he wouldn’t be able to hold his own. He couldn’t even hold his own vs. Rand Paul. There’s a reason that the inventor of the PCR test and the inventor of the mRNA vaccine have called him out.

    By the way, I went to another NASCAR race this weekend up in New Hampshire. Wow, this really is enjoyable and fun! There was a rain delay but they dry the track with this jet dryers that are literally jet engines with heat applied as you can smell the jet fuel. Other vehicles had these powerful blowers behind them that whisk the water to the inside portion of the track and then these mega jet blowers slowly circle at 2 MPH to evaporate whatever is left.

    To hear forty of those cars power up and then the incredible thunder when they hit the green flag is amazing! Doing these overnighters is more enjoyable to me than week long trips. And the people are all just well-behaved and polite. They’re grassroots, simple folks. I saw a lot of American flags, a few Trump flags and even a few Canadian flags. lol. Everyone then stands for the National Anthem and the Canadian National Anthem was sung, too. After the Anthems are sung, a pastor says a prayer, everyone keeps their hats at their chest for the duration, the pit crews and drivers are lined up in perfect single line along each pit space for each driver and then the announcement is made to start engines and it sounds like thunder. It’s a great experience and one of the few signs remaining of classical America.

    Phoenix,

    My brother broke his tibia while down the shore in south jersey on Saturday. He had surgery down there because he couldn’t be moved up here. Those hacks. He has to have another surgery. Went in today to get it checked out by a surgeon up here, and they f’ed up placement of the rod. Unbelievable.

    3b, keep thinking everywhere is like north jersey. You take it for granted.

    Chi, Give me a break, I didn’t create the mess, your generation did. Pardon me if I want what was stated by law that I receive. Law means sh!t, right?

    YOU MOTHERFCUKING BASTARD! WTF IS THIS? IT’S THE LAW?
    IT IS PURE AND SIMPLE THEFT OF PUBLIC FUNDS!

    BEING FINANCE NOW BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT UNDER THE LIE THAT COVID PUT NYS IN A BIND.

    “Second, in addition to their regular retirement benefit, TRS members may contribute to a Tax-Deferred Annuity (TDA) program that offers guaranteed fixed returns backed by the defined benefit pension fund and thus by city taxpayers. The guaranteed rate for most members is 7 percent, set by the state legislature. It is well above guaranteed fixed returns that may be purchased in the private market, which are currently 2 to 2.5 percent or less. TDA assets are invested by TRS along with regular defined benefit pension assets. The guarantee provides valuable benefits to plan members but creates special risks to the city. It does not have the constitutional protection that the regular retirement benefit has and therefore is more directly under the control of state and city policymakers.”

    I didn’t know your age. My apologies. You are part of the f’ed generation like myself, left with the mess.

    I want to take it out of their social security. Pay for the mess you made. These funds were overfunded going into the 90’s. It’s generational theft and it’s criminal.

    To be clear…… the City of Chicago is 10x worse that anything you can imagine…..

    Everyone looking for a federal government bailout.

    Just so everyone understands.

    It isn’t that NJ, or any municipality or state, is being irresponsible for not funding these liabilities. These liabilities have no business being generated in the first place, and the fact that states cannot afford them follows logical and mathematical certainty.

  155. The Great Pumpkin says:

    And the answer is not to punish and switch the pension for current workers. Go take it out of all the money they are passing down to their family after they die…that money was stolen and now needs to be given back before it goes to their offspring.

  156. chicagofinance says:

    I have two different clients in the NYC TDA for teachers…… they separately 86 and 88 years old. They have 40 years of compounding in this thing for which they took no equity risk.

    Imagine having a seven figure sum in July 2021 invested with no market risk return a guaranteed 7% return paid not only by NYC taxpayers, but also all taxpaying citizens of NYS. Now backed by a Biden bailout. THEFT!

    Make sure you understand…… graft is not a Republican or Democrat monopoly. Alabama is not better than Illinois. Tennessee is not better than California.

    With regard to Fauci and the credibility gap… He has no credibility except political reliability which is meaningless.”

    Fauci’s performance since the onset of covid — which has been abysmal — is unfortunately a reminder of all of the once largely reliable institutions that are broken. While they sometimes made mistakes and implemented policies that didn’t always work, institutions like the CDC, FBI (post Hoover), Fed, military were once the gold standard of government — not perfect certainly, but largely immune from politics, unbiased, and generally reliable and trustworthy in the what they did and what they said. At this point, the only institution that I trust to be immune from politics is NASA — and the Dems of course want to gut it.

  165. The Great Pumpkin says:

    So what is the answer? No way in hell are teachers going to accept current compensation without a pension. No way, no how. No one is going to go to college and then take on a job that will leave them eating cat food in their old age. You will attract losers that make even the least competent teacher of today look like a hero. Only a loser would go to college to sign up for cat food in retirement.

    On HZO, yup. I’m in for 6K. I plan to double or triple position after earnings depending on where they land in the historic P/E channel. They are significantly undervalued IMO. I am up 3% from where I bought them, which is excellent compared to the indexes which are all quite negative since then. Have you been watching VEEV? It’s absolutely dominating. MDC I am a little down, but I think she flies after earnings on the 29th. So undervalued that two analysts have a 12 month target that average 70. ValueLine has them at 80 too.

    Somewhere around 40K and it just inches up every year. And the stability is there. Not many teachers move nor is there a lot of turnaround. Why do they do it? An elevated sense of purpose and caring, beyond the notion that it’s just a job.

  176. 3b says:

    Would be nice if the media released vaccination rates by percentage of population eligible instead of just percentage of population vaccinated.

    22% of Texas population is under 12. Jersey about 24 % is under 18. Eligible and vaccinated rate in Texas is worse than jersey, but not as bad as the media makes it seem by going off of whole population. But then what can you expect when the media makes it seem like it’s mostly white Republican males not getting the vaccine.

    Where is all of that 17k tuition going, to settle the lawsuits of the pedophile priests?

  183. Phoenix says:

    For 40k if I’m teaching the answer sheet to the test will be given to the students on the way out of the classroom.

    That is clearly a disrespectful salary. In NJ at least.

  184. Libturd says:

    It’s a small sample, but most of the parochial school teachers I know are married to a decent bread earner. Keep in mind, not everyone in NJ makes six figures.

    Fauci with both guns blazing today. Many other scientists have confirmed the Wuhan lab scientists were performing mutagenesis experiments on BAT viruses, so It cannot be ruled out yet. Fauci tried today anyway and said it was molecularly impossible. How would he know? The intelligence community does not believe so. That Wuhan lab took their databases and research offline in 2019 right before the spread of this virus outside of China and a Chinese scientist from that lab and several local reporters early on in the outbreak have been disappeared. Looks too much like a coverup to be just a coincidence with the official Chinese report of it coming from a Wet market in Wuhan.

    We may never know how and where it came to be in China, but Fauci is wrong here, there is nothing to rule out that lab being the source.

    Juice,

    it was a sad attempt at deflection. He actually said, all of the viruses in that publication, none of them matched. Fauci is trying to create a strawman saying Paul is claiming he funded the research that started the virus. Paul clearly stated, “we don’t know who did, but you funded the lab that it likely came from”. But Fauci’s argument is just garbage. We don’t know all the viruses in that lab. And we were shut off from access from it. He’s also trying to twist and change the definition of “gain of function” to claim he doesn’t fund gain of function research. And this is exactly what I was talking about. Fauci is actually an intellectual lightweight or just plain lazy and Paul was ready for his BS. He brought his own agencies definition of “gain of function” right back at him and he start crumbled.

    It doesn’t mater though. You already have several press releases stating “Fauci schools Rand Paul again” and all the NPCs saw it just that way apparently.

  206. Libturd says:

    Why the infatuation with the source? It doesn’t really change anything. Nor does whether or not we funded it. I don’t trust anything from China but low prices on AlliXpress.

At the end of the day, the labs will continue to do whatever the hell they want, just as an American can choose to be selfish and keep this pandemic alive.

    Is this the same guy who called this place some kind of “intellectual blog”. Go play your Online Gambling and come back after you remind your other self later this week how intellectual we can be.

    You know as much as Nixon was panned he did allot of good. He terminated our own research on biowarfare in 1969 and signed a nearly worldwide treaty against it in 1972. “Gain-of-function research and like experiments” were a big deal back then, it has come full circle again. There are a ton of old books nobody reads anymore as the authors are dead along with the politicians of that time.

    This is as big as the nuclear non-proliferation treaty Nixon signed in 1970, and the anti-ballistic missile treaty too. I have no doubt many countries would have been wiped out if not for these treaties and others.

    And of course the NYT was out this morning in an article repeating their misinformation that vaccine hesitancy is a middle America, Repub phenomenon totally ignoring (to our conversation here a few days ago) that the least vaccinated group are inner city Blacks.

    I had a subscription to The NY Times for years. It was always for the oft part a quality newspaper, well written , and with an excellent international section. Biased in some respects and with a Liberal bent which I had no issues with being a centrist. But the quality of journalism declined, and they dropped even the pretense of being unbiased. I finally ended my subscription at the beginning of this year.

    I was proud of my country until its government soldiers stabbed me in the chest over and over again. (figuratively)
    I would never have thought what happened to me was possible in a country that I loved my entire life and would have went to war to defend. Not in a million years.

    I don’t know pink hair lady’s story. But for me, it would take a lot to make me change how I feel now. What happened to me is baked into the hardware, its in the main processor, the DNA of America. Res Judicata my azz. Easy for them to say that.

    Phoenix,

    I understand your feeling, especially after our chat. Individuals using their personal judgements and bias soured it all for you. I’ve had instances where I felt I wasn’t treated fairly by a cop, a bunch of cops or other situations, private and public but to “spit” on the American flag, kneel, turn your back because one feels jaded or is not happy with their position in life is unacceptable. Nothing is going to make me feel otherwise and I loathe the f.ucking progressive SJWs and all that they stand for.

  234. Bystander says:

    Eddie,
    I would never ask or try to change the way you feel or your position on this. But I can tell you this much, it took one hell of a hit to make me change my position on it. I used to bleed red, white, and blue. It was part of my core. I’m no spring chicken, and growing up that feeling was instilled in you from the minute you stepped into elementary school.

    It’s okay. I knew exactly where I stood when the fake estrogen tears began to fall. The heroes are powerless against that. They won’t look at your evidence, your recordings, your videos. Nothing you say or produce is more effective than an actress who had practiced and prepared for their role that day, as this was planned to happen on that morning like an airstrike. How many ears did she have, as she worked around some of them every day. So much is unknown.

    My grandmothers home was a zombie. My uncle squatted in it for 10 years. Trashed the place and turned it into a junkyard. The house had 100k owed on it through mortgage and none of us would bother because it meant, you had to deal with my deadbeat uncle forever before it got paid off. Sheriff finally evicted him and someone bought it, redid it and flipped it for nearly $700k.

    The house I grew up in Bergenfield (my other grandparents home) was also redone in incredibly poor taste. At best, I would call it a 1.5 bedroom home. We sold it for $330k in 2008. Keep in mind, that’s prior to it falling off a cliff. The guy who bought was in the process of redoing the entire property and gutted it. Then he suddenly died, and his GF squatted in it for years while it decayed. It got sold for $240k, redone like garbage, and flipped for $540k.

We need THEM way more than they need us. You think this chip shortage is creating huge riffs in commerce? Just wait until they ban the sale of anything made of plastic to the U.S.. People would literally be jumping out of windows if they couldn’t get all the sh1t they use every day. Heck, they can’t even be asked to wear a mask for the sake of saving others. Could you just imagine if they couldn’t repair their dishwasher? And how are you getting into the lab to get info? It’s not like China ever opens their doors for anyone. Are you going to threaten WWIII when your debt as percentage of GDP is already way above where it was at the END of WWII?

    Forget politics. I haven’t read the NYTimes in over two decades. WaPo I can’t get past the headlines.

    But if you want to continue to make believe that only the left supports ALL of their positions due to politics and not common sense, then you are as dangerous as the former liar in chief whose most devoted supporters attacked our Capitol.

    And don’t be stupid. Blacks are afraid of the jab due to the years of mistreatment of their people that has caused a lack of faith in the government. Especially the recent maltreatment from the police which has empowered the BLM movement. And let’s face it, this distrust of the government in the black community is inherent in their DNA. Have you forgotten how they got here in the first place?

    The Republican morons who refuse to take the vaccine have no excuse. Praise Trump for his expediency and brilliance in getting a vaccine created that will save the world, but the Dems can’t make me take it. Come on now. What’s the excuse? We all know what it is. It’s simply politics (with no common sense and the ignorance of science) as moronic Republican leadership are playing the do as I say, but not as I do game, where they all got inoculated the moment they could (many before they were supposed to) and then preached to their idiot devotees that you don’t need to. Choice is necessary when you want to be a selfish pr1ck, but not when a mother is impregnated from r@pe. We get it. The left is clearly wrong because we say so, the right is always right, well because the left supports such choices as letting gays marry and transexu@ls be themselves.

    So which party supports live and let live? The party that wants to let the Pandemic run wild forever making it impossible for those immunocompromised to live a normal life, for those who were unfortunate to grow up to desire a partner of a different gender to have a normal life, or for a raped female to have a normal life. Or is it the party that is trying to convince everyone that masks help tremendously and that this vaccine is the ONLY way to end the pandemic and return to normal life.

  247. Libturd, astonished by the stupidity and the moderation filter says:

    Keep supporting the Right and order yourself another case of masks. There’s absolutely no doubt that you’ll need them this fall. The transmission rate of the D variant is 10 to 100 times that of the former three. But don’t wear them since the false Trump (DeSantis) says they don’t work. And don’t get the vaccine because there is a min1scule chance you might experience a side effect. Meanwhile, you’ll take any script your doctor prescribes, many with much more dangerous side effects. We get it. Your moron leaders told you so. I can’t think of a single reason that you shouldn’t take the vaccine. Well, unless you have a sickness/death wish. Covid is coming for the stupid this Fall, and it’s taking the lives and causing more sickness in younger and younger people. Hope your guns provide you some comfort when you are on a ventilator.

  248. Libturd says:

    Left,

    I plan to sell my gains (no tax implications as it’s in a ROTH) in the afternoon today and will let the rest ride. It’s a small position still for me and I can’t see how the earnings could be bad. Especially when compared to the TTM number. I am down at Cape May now and the number of boats on the water just trolling around (few are fishing from them even) for a sunset cruise is astounding. I think it will only get worse. Plus they are still hugely undervalued based on last quarter’s decent earnings. I still think they should be when the number prints tomorrow.

  249. Libturd says:

    “absolutely no ramifications from the factual shooting and killing of an unarmed woman”

    This is where your politics are clearly blinding you. She was illegally participating in an insurrection. They all should have been shot. This is how it works. Every one of those rioters knew their lives were at risk. I’m actually surprised more weren’t killed.

  251. BidenIsTheGOAT says:

    Science tells us that toilet paper masks don’t work against aerosols but wear them if you want. It will help your collectivist cred.

    The vaccines never were supposed to stop the transmission so I’m missing the correlation with the supposed delta variant. They are claiming the vaccine reduces hospitalizations and that’s it. More tds logic.

  252. Libturd says:

    Oh, and keep your focus on Faucci. He is so important to the American people. You should abide by every word the chief medical advisor to the president says. Pope, schmope. Faucci is the true POTUS. And while you are at it, inject some bleach into your arm.

  253. BidenIsTheGOAT says:

    A handful of deaths indirectly related to the capital riot and the left wants martial law. 600k+ related to covid and the are indifferent to the cause. Ooookaaay .

    It’s not indifferent to the cause and it’s not a Left position. Though the Right loves to push where there is no solution. It’s like Trump’s Healthcare. The ACA was horrible and sucked to the highest order. We are still waiting for the Republican replacement. And if you want to talk indifference to the 600K, how about condoning masks and vaccines? Nah, let’s focus on putting Faucci in the gallows.

    You wear your politics on your sleeve like a tramp where’s a tattoo right above her ass.

  255. Libturd says:

    And even after all of this political madness, I still think Biden/Harris are mostly sucking and seem to mostly be biding their time instead of being terribly effective. Then again, the divisiveness on the Hill is so bad that not much is ever going to get done until we are a one party system.

    If Fauci is implicated in the gain of function it’s an epic scandal. I already question how much of him was committed to fighting the pandemic in non political way. He was apparently at least equally concerned with covering his tracks and garnering political cover. How many people did he kill with his leftist gimmicks.

    Here’s another beauty from the left. Losing their minds over masks and vaccines. Meanwhile the border is wide open and covid positivesfrom every shlthole country are poising in. Thanks Biden and Kamala.

  260. No One says:

    Neither party supports “live and let live.”
    Republicans have been accumulating in its leadership a lot of uneducated types and those who would pander to that, with Trump being the first to grab those voters on mostly secular/economic stupidity. (Previously they had mostly religious leaders).
    Democrats have been accumulating an alarming number of advance-degreed morons who are followers of Foucault whether they know it or not – subjectivist/collectivist/racist/marxist these highly degreed morons are in the long run even worse than the uneducated Republican types because their big goal is to use their control of institutions, government, school to redefine all morality and common sense. Even Libturd is going soft thanks to their cultural revolution. Ten years ago he used to tell stories about Bebo, now he’s bought into the BLM narrative.

  261. Phoenix says:

    “A handful of deaths indirectly related to the capital riot and the left wants martial law.”

    Play games with the government and that is exactly what you will get, this place will resemble China before you know it.

    It’s only when you realize that none of them work for you, and that they all work for themselves, that the message becomes clearer. About the only ones you can trust are the youth that enlist, as they are usually patriots and too naive to get it just yet.

    It doesn’t matter what side you are on when you break into the Capitol. And if your real intent was change, you just blew your only opportunity there to make a difference. That place had less security than a local bank. I find it hilarious that a group of angry (not necessarily without merit) yahoos were able to get that close to people in positions of power. Just imagine if they actually had a plan and carried it out.

    It would have made real history.

    But you can bet they are prepared for you the next time. The general public will never get a chance like that again. You have shown them that they can’t trust you-the next time something like this happens it will be a mass casualty event with lots of body bags.

    In twelve months all 328 million of them will either be vaccinated or have contracted the virus. Those are your two choices. It’s an endemic virus. You will come into contact with it.

    Unless it or something else takes you off the face of the Earth first.

    If you are 55 or younger and generally healthy you have an infinitesimal chance of a major adverse outcome if you contract it.

    If you are 55 or younger and you choose to be vaccinated your chances are literally immeasurable.

    So what the fcuk is the big deal?

    Get vaccinated. Or don’t. But just STFU already.

    It’s a fcuking virus with a 0.00001 mortality rate if you’re healthy and a 99.98 efficacious vaccine layered on top of that if you need greater protection.

    It is not, nor was it ever anticipated to be, eradicated. Deal with it.

Much like the borders are left wide open to keep the Dem voter rosters full, the Dems use section 8 and other free money programs to maintain the black vote at the expense of black self reliance.

    I am fiercely independent. I don’t drink the kool aid. Heck, I’m a registered Republican. But I can not and will not ever support a populist movement like the type espoused by DeSantis/Trump/(insert whatever other mascot you choose here). Yeah, both sides suck. It pains one to have to defend a corrupt side. But at the end of the day, when I put the two platforms on a scale, I’m going to lean academic over populist lies. Even if there is a sh1tload of stuff I don’t agree with. The last four years in the White House was an abomination. And I truly wish the Dems would stop with this cancel culture bullsh1t. Though, I’d take the removal of statues over sacrificing the health of Floridians to make a political point every day of the week. A law to not allow a mask requirement for a business owner while supporting the rights of a business owner not to serve a gay couple? What world are you living in?

  274. Libturd says:

    Leftwing,

    It need not be endemic. It’s only endemic due to your politics. Nothing personal, but that goes without saying.

    Call me unlucky, but I have a son and a father who are both immunocompromised. Call me an asshole, but I care about them. I already lost a very close friend from college, who played in my monthly poker game and was as healthy as an ox, who got butt cancer and died of Covid due to his lack of immunity from the chemo he was on. How anyone can take a position that ignores all of these people is simply selfish. You might feel different when it touches you closely.

    Heck, I have a trip planned to go to Vegas on August 7th that I am probably cancelling for a second time in two years because too many people think like you.

    Just take the vaccination and we can get back to normal. Herd immunity works. Unless you make believe that it doesn’t.

    Can’t wait for the Republican anti-mask bullsh1t to revive in the fall.

  275. Libturd says:

    I hate the woke garbage as much as the next guy and think that it has gone too far. There are systemic issues within the police force. Way too many one-offs. But not everyone in the black community is persecuted. Though, I have to say, the right parading the very occasional successful black person who made it without government assistance is pretty racist in itself. Especially since the one’s they choose tend to be kooks. Look, see this one black Trump supporter? This proves we’re not racist. Just don’t you dare take a step off the sidewalk on to my property or my wife and I will use this here shotgun to blow your head off.

    I used to believe since I made it, then everyone else should be able to. Until I managed hundreds of people. Of them, maybe five had the aptitude and desire to succeed. The other 95 were content being lazy and had no interest in betterment. Though I still believe the other 95 can be shown the way. I know that where there is no will, there is no way. My parents taught me the will and way. The values in the urban black community are fukced. No one is showing them the way. In actuality, I think this is intentional by the Dems. I would blame the Right too, but their idea of help is to help themselves.

  276. Libturd says:

    Nomad, will listen later today. If it’s shallow right wing bullsh1t, I’m gonna be pissed. I can’t go 5 minutes listening to most of today’s conservatives conjure up lie after lie. It’s obvious that deception makes a lot of money! Look at the Freedom Phone. So many suckers on both sides of the aisle, but the Freedom Phone? I wish I thought of it myself.

  277. Phoenix says:

    “How anyone can take a position that ignores all of these people is simply selfish.”

    Like how so many feel about the homeless.

    When it affects someone “closely” then all of a sudden they wake up to that, and the rest of us are supposed to care as deeply.

    I know some people who won’t take the vaccine cause they are depressed, some are afraid, some Trumpers, some anti-system, the list goes on.

    America is the land of freedom and choice, right??

    Well, you can’t have it both ways. Or you can try. Whatever.
    Since America is turning into a giant turd anyway just let it ride. The only ones pushing an issue are those with something to lose-and plenty here in America have nothing to lose.
    Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose. Personally I don’t care who vaxxes or not. I know how to protect myself. Remember, I am in an industry that if someone comes in as a patient, and I get stuck with their blood products-legally I can’t force them to get an AIDS or Hepatitis test. I get the wonderful option of taking weeks of toxic antivirals possibly for no reason. Now that is really a great American concept-I help you, but you don’t have to help me.

    So I do my best to protect myself. And if that fails, well, it’s been a fun ride.

    The only way to prevent nationwide spread of this sort of virus was if we went to an actual, full on quarantine – hard lockdown for a sustained period.

    You are seeing it black and white. There is a sliding scale of benefit that is obtained for each person that vaccinates. The more that vaccinate, the less that will be hospitalized/die. I’m not saying that none die or get sick if everyone is vaccinated or that all die or get sick if they don’t. But the math and science say that the more people who vaccinate, the less likely one is to die or be seriously hospitalized.

    Of course, we could just stop vaccinating and do the shoot em all, let god sort em out method which you support.

    But it’s likely that once we reach 80% vaccination (combined with some Covid antibodies in some from having defended against the correct strain who have not been jabbed) the masks come off and life returns to normal with just a few breakouts here and there.

    Not sure why you don’t believe this?

  286. Libturd says:

    Speaking of drones, someone bought a self guided drone for the D. It’s really an amazing piece of tech. Not so much for what it does, but for how little it costs. He chases this sucker all over the house. It avoids the floor, the walls and the ceiling. You can sort of guide it with your hands like with opposing force magnets. You can even make it do flips. It charges by USB in about 30 minutes and lasts for about 8 minutes.

    Yea, that’s why I want people to get vaccinated. It makes it that much difficult for the virus to spread and mutate. But that’s too much to ask of the individual…they matter more than beating this virus into submission. Imagine going to war with these guys by your side…

    What I find funny, no problem getting in a car, or street bike (even more dangerous), but scared of the risk with a vaccine. Okayyyy.

    It’s a substantive podcast that trends conservative from the hosts who are self admitted progressives. Galloway has his usual intro and commercials for the first few minutes.

  290. The Great Pumpkin says:

    High taxes and living costs along with underfunded borrowing once seemed to explain why New Jersey has been the worst performer in the $3.8 trillion market for state and local government debt during much of the last decade. Then a new governor actually raised taxes and imposed new costs on business — and turned the state’s debt into the nation’s most desired by investors since he took office in 2018.

    Now New Jersey is one of only seven states with an improving economy over the last 3 1/2 years, measured by employment, personal income, home prices, tax receipts, mortgage delinquencies and the equity of their companies. It’s the only one of those seven with perennial leadership in public education and health care.

    The 11th-most-populated state appears likely to re-elect the new governor, 63-year-old Phil Murphy, who’d then become the first Democrat in 44 years to win a second term. Murphy stands out as the only U.S. governor who promised and delivered higher minimum wages, a tax on millionaires, paid sick leave, college financial aid, free community college tuition, stricter gun laws, legalized recreational marijuana and the first full payment to New Jersey’s pension system in 25 years.

  292. JCer says:

    Here’s my comment on the Jan 6th “peaceful protest”, just because you disagree politically what they are protesting doesn’t give you the right to stop the peaceful assembly. It was literally no different than the BLM/Antifa protests besides being more limited in scope and causing far less devastation. The people who behaved in a violent and illegal manner in both instances should be prosecuted. That being said justice is being metered on a political basis in a very unfair way, the people arrested for activity on Jan 6th have not been afforded their constitutional rights and are in fact political prisoners.

    Furthermore calling an angry mob an “Insurrection” is politically biased speech, it was a riot plain and simple. Furthermore maybe there was something to what they were demanding, why did they commit fraud in GA? They have proven that in the recounts and audits they fraudulently filled out counts. No they haven’t proven election fraud but usually when one commits fraud in an audit/recount they are trying to hide something.

    As for the women shot, it could be justified or unjustified but since the public was not party to any investigation, if their was indeed an investigation we simply do not know. The optics are certainly bad you cannot shoot an unarmed trespasser unless they present a risk and at that moment the women was not a risk. The inconsistency compared to the violent BLM riots shows, the capitol building is just a building as much as the democrats try to build up the event which frankly might have been inflamed by agent provocateurs. Seriously the democrats knew there would be an angry mob and minimized protections, it’s almost like they wanted this violent turn for political reasons.

    As for COVID, leftwing has pointed out the data. As for the data keep getting your COVID jabs only 40% of those hospitalized for COVID in the UK were fully vaccinated. I’m vaccinated but I make no bones about it, the vaccine will eventually be utterly useless against variants, especially the mRNA versions as they do not generate as strong of a T-Cell response as an actual infection, they will need to update the vaccines for newer variants at some point in the near future.

    Or we could just dose all people who get COVID with indomethacin, our NIH confirmed it’s effectiveness against SARS in 2006, Fauci’s boss made mention of data showing lower rates of hospitalization among people taking indomethacin for arthritis. They did a small study on kidney transplant patients who got covid and found that treating early with indomethacin resulted in no deaths. The current push by the government does not follow the data, nor the science. Vaccines are good but we should be using them wisely and they are only one tool in the arsenal, not the only tool. We under no circumstance should be vaxxing individuals previously infected, that is the cause of most of the adverse reactions, the science tells us that. Same is true for children, covid is not truly dangerous to most children, the science and the data makes that clear. Truth is there is some truth to the notion that the vaccine has killed more children than COVID in some places.

  293. Libturd says:

    “The two big attributes we have as a state are talent and location,” Murphy said in an interview last week in his 14th-floor office surrounded by life-size photographs of New Jersey natives Danny DeVito, James Gandolfini, Jon Bon Jovi, Queen Latifah, Jack Nicholson, Meryl Streep and Bruce Springsteen — all on loan from the Newark Museum of Art. “We have the No. 1 public education in America and we are No. 1 per square mile in research and engineers in the world.”

  297. Phoenix says:

    “It was literally no different than the BLM/Antifa protests besides being more limited in scope and causing far less devastation.”

    But it’s WHERE it happened. And the fact they got so close to high level government officials. That makes all the difference. It’s not the devastation, it’s not the scope, it’s the WHO that it affected.

  298. Libturd says:

    Jcer,

    Appreciate you taking the time to explain your position, but I don’t agree with any of it. It still rings of political bias.

    You cannot compare what happened in Portland to what happened at the Capitol. Sorry. One building was filled with the leaders of our country. The other buildings, vacant at the time and not quite as important to our democracy. But keep telling yourself differently. And yes, they should all be treated accordingly to the laws they broke. But breaking into the Capitol to obstruct the election confirmation? Just give it up already. This IS TREASON.

    As for the woman shot. Too fukcing bad. I suppose the cops shouldn’t have been there either, right? And the proof that the Dems wanted or let this happen? This is the stuff of the Qanon crowd. There might even be an investigation, but the right won’t allow it. Bunch of puzzy ass, two-faced, anti-American cowards you support.

    As for the Variant excuse. If we spent just a little of the money that we waste on defending our country against no enemies, we could have easily created a program that would have produced enough vaccine to cover the world. But there is no will on either side of the aisle to do what we should have done. So much good will thrown into the garbage all to defend each other’s political parties. They should all be thrown into prison for the criminals they all are.

    Take off your political hats for two seconds. It will help you see things for what they truly are. It’s enlightening.

    You just have to stop sourcing all of your news from the Right.

    Read Tangle or something similar. Heck, the news from Robin on the Stern Show was a better source of news than nearly anything on the left or right.

  299. Libturd says:

    Sure Murphy saved the state. How?

    It’s worse now than when he took office. Chances are, this is one of the many fluff pieces that he paid a writer to write. But you are seriously too dense to realize this.

    So where’s the article source? And how did he make NJ better? By borrowing to pay for your bullsh1t pension? I’m sure he’s a hero to you.

    Nearly every positive article you will read about this major pinhead was written by either a political hack or one of his appointees. It’s gross. I’ve never seen such a smooth propaganda machine in action like his. Then again, what’s his net worth? I wonder if he’ll try to buy the presidency next?

  300. The Great Pumpkin says:

    Someone that gets it. Nj’s economy is changing before our eyes. It’s growing strong. Now think of what impact this will have on our housing…has a long way to run. Comical, some people think this is a bubble and pricing will be cheaper next year. I would seriously not bet on that.

    My favorite fluff piece was written by Corbett of NJ Transit two years ago when NJ Transit was going through another Summer of disastrous service. The theme of the article was that Murphy has already made great strides in hiring and training engineers, the cause of the latest rounds of train cancellations. And that things were really not that bad at the agency (that Murphy has appointed him to lead).

    It’s now 2021. In 2020, NJ Transit was once again rated last among all state transit agencies in the country.

    For the few that are still commuting, it is no better. Still massive delays, outages, cancelled trains. Same as it ever was. Their crowing jewel was finishing the required Federal Autobreaking system that takes over when engineers with sleep apnia, who somehow are driving trains unknowing of their sleep apnia, even though they are required to be regularly tested for it, crash in to terminus’.

  304. The Great Pumpkin says:

    So one of 7 states that grew their economy in the last 3 1/2 years means nothing. Investors raising the credit rating of the state is bad news right? How many times did it go down under Christie? That pos. How much more did he cost us in borrowing costs?

    How much did he cost this economy by canceling the f’in tunnel project? Instead of helping our economy, he took bat to it. I want to punch him the face for getting paid to scapegoat groups like teachers while taking down our state. What a POS. You clowns kept voting for him. Lib, was in love with him for his attacks on the teachers. He played you people silly on populous talking points attacking unions and public workers, while blaming them for the reason there are high property taxes.

During those weeks in May/June of protests that turned into riots at Lafayette park, social media exploded with anger against the federal government. Heck Trump had to hide in the basement bunker because they thought the White House might be breached one night.

    Data on NJ Deaths of Fully Vaccinated, behind paywall so copy pasta.

    There have been 49 fully vaccinated people in New Jersey who have died from complications related to the coronavirus through July 12, state health officials told NJ Advance Media on Wednesday.

    More than half of those who died had at least one underlying medical condition, according to Donna Leusner, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Health.

    The number of deaths has increased since Gov. Phil Murphy announced on Monday that there had been 31 fully vaccinated people who died of COVID through June 28. The latest number includes cases through July 12, the latest data available, Leusner said.

    All of the deaths were people over age 50, with 30 of them over age 80. Thirteen of the deaths were people between the ages of 65 and 79, and six were between the ages of 50 and 64, Leusner said.

    Of the 27 deaths of people with underlying conditions, 17 had cardiovascular disease, seven had diabetes and nine had cancer or other immunocompromised conditions, she said. Five had chronic lung conditions, three had chronic kidney disease, one had chronic liver disease and five others are listed as “other chronic diseases.” Some of the people who died had more than one underlying condition.

    Data about whether any of the people who died were nursing homes residents was not available.

  331. Phoenix says:

    Being in a nursing home is just prolonging death anyway.

    Might just as well be hooked up to machines in a pod like in the Matrix.

    You misunderstand me. Not crying, I find this exclusion preferable. A diverse committee findings are more legitimate…Repubs pull out and don’t participate feeds the divide and separation. Remember, I want failure and strife. This advances the cause. Riles up the natives.

    Chi/Phoenix/HMB…I’ve seriously considered taking an office and establishing a counseling service for those in divorce or considering marriage. Without actually experiencing divorce there is no way an individual can be prepared to tackle it effectively. Not legal advice, not emotional/behavioral, not financial. More like an M&A advisor to an operating CEO….handling every detail you don’t need to know, don’t want to know, don’t have the time to learn, and will never (hopefully) utilize again. Representing solely your best interest and that interest alone by managing your other advisors (lawyers, employment experts, forensic accountants, etc). Seriously. Maybe even run it as a 501(c)3.

  334. JCer says:

    Lib, agree to disagree. The vast majority of the “insurrectionists” entered the capital without weapons and did not pose any real threat, they were there to take a selfie, yet their due process rights have been violated. Seriously the lunatic with the horns and the face paint is being held in solitary confinement. If anything our DOJ is committing treason. These types of abuses are why the USA exists today. The capital is nothing but a building, clowngress people were evacuated and never at risk from the angry senior citizens who broke into the capitol, it was not an “insurrection” it was what the founders intended. Perhaps if congress was used to encountering an angry mob they’d stop selling us out and the goes for both sides. As for the “Q-Anon” theories, it is anything but they opened fcuking doors, they did not plan for adequate security despite knowing about the potentially angry mob either they are that incompetent or they intended to use the riots for political purposes.

    As Juice pointed out Antifa attacked the White House. Yes those who broke the law should be held accountable but they are entitled to what the constitution affords. Furthermore if it was really an “insurrection” perhaps someone would have been armed, if it was an insurrection it was an exceedingly poorly planned one. As for the unarmed women shot, it is a question of was the use of force warranted? We cannot have multiple standards for the law, the law is the law whether we agree with it or not and that is the key issue. Whether it’s the capital or a federal courthouse in Portland legally there is little distinction. You cannot forgive one and prosecute the other.

    As for Desantis, whatever he is doing his death count still looks better than Cuomo or Murphy, so there is always that. The data doesn’t bare out that his actions had any impact and FL was the recipient of many covid infected people in feb and march from NY, NJ, and CT.

    I’m not trying to be partisan but we should look at fact. I know you probably don’t believe it but I’m a registered democrat who has voted for many democrats in the past. But as Eddie has stated many times in the past who can vote for the lunacy that is today’s Democratic Party.

    re: “Being in a nursing home is just prolonging death anyway.”

    When my wife’s grandma hit 103 she was moved by her children to assisted living. Nice place. I don’t know what cost was for sure as it was MIDWEST approx $8,000 a month, she had basically a studio APT with some keepsakes etc. Seems she fell out of bed and died approx a month into this place. BTW bed height was at least a foot perhaps more higher than her old bedroom. I noticed it and commented when I was there, was told she would be helped etc..

    So here is my public service announcement don’t fall for that trick make sure bed is low as possible, my mother who is turning 84 has a nice low bed, swing your feet out no issues with height etc…

    She and her healthy friends are driving to Saratoga Springs this summer for the races. God Bless them I say. They are a different breed…

    Police stopped only a fraction of the violent protestors Jan. 6, but we still know of guns and explosives seized in and around the Capitol. And we know rioters brought knives, brass knuckles a stun gun and other weapons.

    Just as notable, video plainly shows the mob using all manner of makeshift weapons to attack police and force their way in, including hockey sticks, flagpoles, fire extinguishers and a police shield stolen from an officer.

    Juice,
    One bought of orthostatic hypotension and down you go. Tell your mom to get up VERY SLOWLY.
    Many meds contribute to this, not including just plain old aging. Sometimes the old ticker is just a bit too slow to respond, and foof, down you go.

    Then you end up on a late night TV commercial from Life Line. One thing I would suggest if you don’t want to go the commercial route would be to get her an Iphone/Iwatch combo. They detect falls and heart issues.

    I will bite my tongue about older drivers, the “blue plate Buick specials,” however.

    LW,
    Not a bad idea. And one that is truly necessary today.
