ECONOMICS: There is no such thing as “price gouging”

Baby Formula Shortage Prompts NJ State Of Emergency: Murphy
Those looking to make a profit by increasing baby formula prices will face severe penalties in New Jersey, officials said.

NEW JERSEY – Gov. Phil Murphy declared a state of emergency in New Jersey on Tuesday amid an ongoing shortage of baby formula due to inflation, supply chain issues and recalls in the state and around the country.

The declaration was signed in order to activate New Jersey price gouging laws consistent with efforts at the federal level, according to Murphy.

“We firmly believe that New Jersey is the best place in the nation to raise a family, and during this challenging time, we want to support our
families with all of the resources at our disposal,” Murphy said in a statement.

“To any retailer who may try to take advantage of vulnerable families during this shortage, let me be clear that this reprehensible action will not be tolerated. And to any New Jerseyan affected by this shortage, rest assured that my administration will do everything in our power to ensure families have access to the formula they need.”

*** end quote ***

Once again, this is just Gooferment stupidity. There’s no such thing as “price gouging”. Higher prices are the signals from the market that makes TWO things happen — conservation of a scarce resource and an incentive to entrepreneurs to provide resources or alternatives. Baby formula is no different that any other commodity. Argh!

Like the hotels taking in refugees from a natural disaster MUST raise their prices to encourage “conservation”.  If the price is “too high”, then a family will squeeze into one room rather than spread out into two.  Then this will leave that other room free for some other family.  The market place “rations” scarce resources by higher priced.  

Also, entrepreneurs may open a spare bedroom during an emergency to make a few bucks because of those high prices.

Argh!

Real economists like Walter Williams have made much stronger arguments than I ever can. But it’s clear that politicians and bureaucrats never studied any economics or enjoy posturing for the publicity.

Argh!

GOVERNACIDE: The Gooferment should never have the power of life and death

The heinous Buffalo supermarket massacre screams for the death penalty
By Michael Goodwin
May 17, 202210:01pm

*** begin quote ***

Politicians, the media and citizens across the nation are united in denouncing the white man who slaughtered 10 black people at a Buffalo supermarket. There is also fury at how he was able to buy the rifle he used months after cops ordered a mental-health evaluation following an earlier threat to carry out a ­shooting.

Yet despite the anger and wall-to-wall media coverage, largely unsaid is what the punishment should be. That’s at least partially because New
York doesn’t allow the obvious answer — the death penalty. 

Although the Empire State has not carried out an execution since 1963, it had the law on the books for many years until 2007. So even if a
county district attorney wanted to seek the ultimate punishment in this case, the state legal code doesn’t allow it.

But federal law does. And if President Biden considers the massacre to be as heinous as he claimed in his Tuesday remarks in Buffalo, he will direct Attorney General Merrick Garland to have federal prosecutors take over the case and, if they win a conviction, seek the death penalty. 

*** end quote ***

I don’t care how “heinous” the crime, and I find this one to be abhorrent, I NEVER want the Gooferment to kill people.  

As a pro-life pro-choice little L libertarian, the Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy. How often do we find that the Gooferment gets things wrong? 

In this particular case, the Gooferment and its “systems” failed to detect and stop this killer. 

Personally, I’d like to have an investigation of when drugs, if any, he was taking. SSRIs?

Let’s lock him up forever, but keep him alive to be studied.  And, as a constant reminder of the evil that he represents.

Besides capital cases, cost a small fortune and take decades. 

I’m only for the death penalty when a “Hannible Lector” type is too dangerous to keep alive.

LPT: Have two Checking Accounts

Miscellaneous

I recommend this to all my friends for it has saved me from A LOT of fraudulent activities. Open two bank accounts within the same bank. One account you can link to others to pay bills, transfer funds, etc. The other one should be set up with your Direct Deposit. The sole purpose of this account is to receive funds and send it to the other checking account for bills. Essentially think about it as one way in, one way out. Put that debit card in a safe or shred it. You’ll use this account for internal transfers only. Only put what your expenses are going to be in that account. If your card gets stolen, fine, they just stole $20. etc.

A tough, gritty, and seemingly authentic war movie

rsimanski18 March 2002

If you’ve never heard of this movie before, you’re in good company. Apparently, neither have Leonard Maltin, Roger Ebert, or the editors of the “VideoHound Golden Movie Retriever.” Fortunately, the editor of VideoHound’s book on war movies had heard of it. Based on his favorable review, I taped and viewed the film recently. If you enjoy a good “battle” movie, be sure to catch this one–you won’t be disappointed.

“The Siege of Firebase Gloria” is a real film about real people in an unreal hell. Its apparently low budget was a blessing because it forced the creators to focus on plot and character development rather than on bombastic and meaningless special effects. Nevertheless, the battle sequences are believable and well-done.

This film is a sleeper that apparently did not get the exposure that it deserved. Then again, R. Lee Ermey and Wings Hauser, who played the lead roles, are not exactly box-office draws, and the other names in the cast were totally unfamiliar to me. However, Ermey, Hauser, and everyone in the cast do a solid job.

The action takes place during the Vietnamese Tet offensive in 1968, during a supposed holiday cease-fire, when the Viet Cong caught the South Vietnamese and U.S. forces by surprise with an all-out assault throughout South Vietnam. Ermey and his Marines are caught in the trap when they are ordered to help defend a small, meaningless outpost, Firebase Gloria, with virtually no help except, finally, from a small Air Cavalry unit. The Tet offensive was the beginning of the end for South Vietnam.

I never served in Vietnam, but this film has the feeling of being authentic. This is not a simplistic “good guys versus bad guys” film. The atrocities and inhumanities committed by both sides are not overemphasised but they are not glossed over either. They are just there as part of the fabric of the war.

Perhaps more importantly, they are shown in the context of a deadly, virtually unsurvivable siege and final battle. We sympathize with the Marines, of course, and we see them as ordinary, basically decent human beings. We may not condone some of the things that they do, but we understand why they may have seen no other alternative. It reminds me of the film “Zulu,” about British troops trapped in a similar situation a century ago.

For many of us, our image of R. Lee Ermey is as the over-the-top drill sergeant in “Full Metal Jacket.” His character in “Firebase Gloria” is more human and lower in key, yet you can see his character evolving into the drill sergeant following his tour in Vietnam. When you’ve walked through hell with your fellow battle-hardened Marines and been one of the few to come out alive, you know that you have to do everything in your power to prepare your green recruits to walk through that same hell.

Is “Firebase Gloria” on the same level of quality as “Platoon” and “Full Metal Jacket”? Not quite. I’d put it on a par with “Go Tell the Spartans,” which, despite a strong performance from Burt Lancaster, has also never gotten the exposure that it deserves. These films deserve to be seen, not forgotten.

It’s a good object lesson on the true cost of war; it was a meaningless one founded on deceit and lies.

I have no idea how historically accurate it is.  I have no idea if the morals of the story are worth deciphering.  I have no idea of how strong a stomach for watching.  I have no idea if the Viet Cong were subsumed by Hanoi as a result of this, or any other battle. 

It certainly does a great job of tallying up the body count to the grunts on both sides.  How anyone could go through that and not come out with PTSD is beyond my comprehension.

It made me more a little L libertarian.

INSPIRATIONAL: A breakthrough discovery about lupus

https://bigthink.com/health/lupus-gene-mutation/

A Spanish teen’s genome may hold the secret to lupus
Researchers believe they have found a single point mutation in an infection-sensing gene that causes the autoimmune disorder.

Researchers may have finally discovered a genetic cause of lupus, the autoimmune disorder (and elusive enemy of Dr. Gregory House).

Their study, published in Nature, points to a mutation in a gene that senses viral RNA. 

Previous studies have implicated the gene, called TLR7, in lupus before, El Pais reports, but this new study identified a previously unknown variant of the gene in a Spanish teenager who was diagnosed with lupus as a child.

Thanks to a little Spanish girl’s suffering, humanity might benefit in several ways — identification, mitigation, and perhaps even a cure.

Calls Emerge For China To Deploy Digital “Helicopter Money”

Back in 2020, we sketched out the monetary endgame as follows: the Fed – along with all other central banks – was rushing to roll out a CBDC (digital dollar) so that when the next crisis hit, it could then directly deposit said “Digital Dollars” directly into the accounts of each American – or at least those Americans the Fed found worth of such stimmies – to offset a deflationary bust.

Of course, Gresham’s Law would seem to indicate that the e-CNY being spent would free up money could be “saved” in other ways. For example, buy food with your e-CNY and gold with what you would have spent on food.  Would seem to be counter productive; not creating a boom?

What is the final lesson you can share?

That we will continue to sort of stumble through questions about war, but never learn anything. For 50 years, I never spoke about war, much
less myself or what I did. I had nightmares. I had my inner struggles and inner demons and I had to overcome them in time, but by the same
token war was not something I wanted to remember or document. It was not until I got invited to speak to others about my combat experience, to
speak to groups of young people, that I realized I had a duty and obligation to reflect my true feelings and beliefs about war. The people
were so young. I recognized a duty to remind young people about the sacrifices made by other Americans, up to and including death, to make
life possible for them and others not yet born. When called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice, some of us did, and they should be remembered.
Those of us who survived owe it to them, and to each other, to remember what they sacrificed.

*** end quote ***

“A veteran is someone who at one point in his life wrote a blank check made payable to the ‘United States of America’ for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.'” -Anonymous

Remember Heinlein’s Starship Troopers’ universe? One does not merely have the right to be a citizen and vote by virtue of what Heinlein called the mere accident of birth; rather, one has to earn this right through Federal Service that tested one’s ability and willingness to sacrifice for the greater good of the polity. Bet not a lot of vets would vote for all the undeclared wars the USA has been in since WW2?

That’s the book that made me an anti-war little L libertarian.  And, I can empathize with Lucky’s realizations.

In my era, you had only two options — serve or Canada.  There were no CO status being give out; akin to the “religious objector” status to Covid vaccination.  My best friend from high school went underground and I never saw him again.  My other friend went into the Army and I didn’t see him for decades.  It was a terrible time.

And for what.

Just like all the “wars” since then, based on lies or egos.  And, no one is held to account.

North Carolina trooper uses his own car to stop suspected drunk driver
By Lorraine Taylor, Fox News

*** begin quote ***

A North Carolina State Highway Patrol trooper is being credited for saving lives by putting his own life on the line to stop a suspected drunk driver from entering an interstate going the wrong way.

North Carolina State Highway Patrol said Trooper Cody Thao used his own patrol car as a barrier to stop the driver who was speeding up an exit ramp the wrong way. The dramatic crash was caught on dashcam video.

Police said Trooper Thao was called in to help with a pursuit in the early morning hours of April 8. Just as the trooper arrived, the pursuit arrived onto the I-40 eastbound ramp to Rock Quarry Road in Wake County. The suspect started driving the wrong way on the ramp.

The video shows Trooper Thao intentionally drive his own car into the path of the suspected drunk driver to stop him from entering the interstate going the wrong way. Amazingly, the trooper was not injured.

“I could not be prouder of Trp. Thao and his quick decision to stop the wrong way driver, his actions most undoubtedly saved lives,” Colonel Freddy L. Johnson, Jr., commander of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, said in a statement. “His willingness to put himself in harm’s way is representative of the lifesaving work our members do each day. Placing others before ourselves is not just a saying amongst the law enforcement profession, it’s a reality of what we do for the betterment of the communities we serve.”

*** end quote ***

This inspires three points:

FIRST, kudos to the trooper who risked his life to save others.  No doubt not doing this pretty much would ensure a potential catastrophic accident.

SECOND, my continued harping on why we down engineer roads to prevent this from happening.  Parking lot owners have devices that will shred tires if you back up over them or exit the wrong way.  Why can’t we deploy these on interstates?

THIRD, DUIs that are not “Micky Mouse” — over a numerical limit at a checkpoint, please — but damage property, hurt some one, or (Heaven Forbid) kill some one need to be SEVERELY punished.  No “first time” discount for that type of DUI,

‘The proposed amendments to WHO’s International Health Regulations (IHR) give unlimited powers to Tedros to declare health
emergencies without the cooperation and against the will of the target nation, essentially overriding its sovereignty.  If the nation does not
cooperate in 48 hours, Tedros is then empowered to contact and unleash all relevant nations and agencies both at the UN and worldwide by
informing them of its finding.  This could lead to shaming and ostracizing the target nation, and subject it to potential political, economic, and financial sanctions from these groups.

The Director General can do this on the basis of mere suspicion of a “potential” public health emergency possibly affecting at least one other country, without consulting with the target nation and even in despite resistance from the nation, and without defining the nature or source of the
problem.’

New Jersey Dept of Environmental Police, Set up Snitch Line to Report Contraband Plastic and Styrofoam Users
May 4, 2022 | Sundance | 278 Comments

*** begin quote ***

Perhaps in the grand scheme of all things facing us, this action by New Jersey may seem a little silly; however, it’s still nuts.

Comrades, starting today it is illegal in New Jersey to have plastic or paper bags in stores for shoppers.  Additionally, restaurants,
cafeterias and food trucks are forbidden to serve take-out food in Styrofoam-like products. Also, all retailers must stop selling
polystyrene foam products like plates and cups.  Drinking straws require a permit for restricted distribution as monitored by the Department of
Health.

To ensure legal compliance within the Garden State, officials in New Jersey have established a snitch hotline for citizens to call the Dept
of Environmental Police (DEP) and report dissident violators, while the state ministry of citizen compliance have created a “WARN DEP” app to
facilitate easier snitching on your neighbors if you spot them using contraband containers.

Legislature OKs bill closing plastic bag ban loophole

Excerpt:

A 2019 law, that went into effect Jan. 1, prohibited large stores and chain retailers from providing “any single-use plastic carryout bag” to consumers at the point of sale.

Rather than offer reusable fabric bags or paper, however, many stores in the First State took advantage of an exemption in the 2019 bill that allowed for thicker plastic bags, reasoning that those plastic bags would be reusable, rather than single use. The reality after their use began, however, was that most consumers weren’t reusing the thicker bags as recommended.

​I’m at “acceptance and hope” stage​.  Back when the employment model switched from “lifetime employment” to “job hopping/consulting”, I told my turkeys that there was now “Blue Light Special” announcement like at the now defunct Kmart to tell them that “the game” had changed.  So to, now, imho, the “financial game” has changed and no announcement is being made.  Bitcoin, alternative forms of money, and other commodities are replacing fiat currencies like the U$D, Euro, and others.  Only the Russian Rouble has made the shift.  All other forms of fiat are subject to “inflation” aka Gooferment Theft. 

Unfortunately, not many have gotten the “non-announcement” and so will pay the tax and take the losses.  Heaven help the bond holders who will get triple screwed (i.e., inflation, loss of income, and loss of capital value) when the 1/7 seesaw rocks against them (i.e., 1% rise in interest rate yields a 7% decrease in the dollar value a bond).

FWIW YMMV and TANSTAAFL (“There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch” From Robert Heinlein’s classic)

INSPIRATIONAL: Some of what is screamed out in public is truly “ABSURD”

https://www.dailysignal.com/2022/05/03/the-age-of-the-absurd/?utm_source=TDS_Email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=MorningBell&mkt_tok=ODI0LU1IVC0zMDQAAAGEN6lkVYy7Qeh_Yxo1_IRnzTZh9sNXe5H5seFIcbQsvr7Z8zogCtsbhx1d46UtUYZHC-dVZwkTtAGTcWtkcbm8GlmtJe0Y2Rk5gQ5FDRojrJBTbwp5

The Age of the Absurd
Dennis Prager / @DennisPrager / May 03, 2022

*** begin quote ***

No. 11: America is systemically racist.

The manifest absurdity of this claim is easily demonstrated. In the past decades, more than 3 million black people have immigrated to America from Africa and the Caribbean. And probably tens of millions more would like to. Are all these people fools—choosing to move to a systemically racist country? Are they ignorant—unaware that America is systemically racist?

The non-absurd know the answers: All these blacks are neither fools nor ignorant. They know how lucky they are to move to America—because this country is so tolerant and so overwhelmingly nonracist. People don’t move to countries that hate them. No Jews moved to Germany in the 1930s.

We live in the Age of the Absurd. The only question is, why? I think I know the answer and will discuss it in a future column. In the meantime, share these 11 absurdities with friends and relatives, especially with those who actually think they make sense.

*** end quote ***

I remember a news clip from the corporate media doing a story about how the “evil Republicans” were slowing immigration and that there were long lines at out embassies seeking permission.  One fellow in the line, who had been waiting for days, when asked why, replied: “America has fat poor people.”  To me, that was the best answer I’d ever heard.  

I see immigrants from India opening all sorts of businesses because it’s easy compared to the corruption in India.  I see Oriental immigrants whose children seem to succeed in Gooferment Skrules against the odds.  I see Mexican immigrants working their butts off at hard labor jobs and proudly showing off their new work truck for their efforts.

“Systematically racist” is something I don’t see.  Pockets of idiots who either can’t or won’t try — of all races — seem to seek to blame “society”.

I will stipulate that the Gooferment “welfare” is designed to keep people poor and it is hard to break the cycle.  But many do.

Let’s get the Gooferment out of the way.

NEWJERSEY: End the Estate Tax — stop grave robbing!

It’s Time For States To Bury The ‘Death Tax’

By Regina M. Egea for RealClearPolicy

*** begin quote ***

As a Founding Father and inventor, Benjamin Franklin was a visionary without peer in his time. His famous utterance “nothing is certain
except death and taxes” could easily apply to New Jersey in 2022, as residents of one of the highest taxed states in the Union find the
state’s insatiable appetite for revenue following them even to the grave through the Inheritance Tax or “Death Tax.”

In our latest research, Friendly Fire: Unintended Consequences of NJ’s Death Tax, the Garden State Initiative examined our state’s Death Tax, paid by some beneficiaries of inherited funds and properties.

New Jersey remains just one of six states to impose a Death Tax, along with Pennsylvania, Nebraska, Kentucky, Maryland and Iowa. Notably Iowa, as part of their widespread state tax reform effort, has moved to repeal it effective 2025. 

*** end quote ***

Just “yet another reason” why retirees move out of the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee.  Some even take “their” New Jersey pensions with them.

The Gooferment, unlike it’s competition the Mafia, sees no problem with grave robbing.

Argh!

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Pfizer … who do we jail first?

https://palexander.substack.com/p/pcr-test-fraud-and-how-pfizer-used?token=eyJ1c2VyX2lkIjo0MTQyNTAzMCwicG9zdF9pZCI6NTM0NDEyMzUsIl8iOiI3aHB6OCIsImlhdCI6MTY1MTcwMzA2MiwiZXhwIjoxNjUxNzA2NjYyLCJpc3MiOiJwdWItNTc5MzU2Iiwic3ViIjoicG9zdC1yZWFjdGlvbiJ9.dJwRUjSy5D00q3FiDwZXCBVEuffm-2aCICdpSk0XfZM&s=r

PCR test fraud & how Pfizer used this sensitive ‘over-cycled’ test with a 97% false-positive rate to defraud the US & the world, to work with FDA
to get EUA based on 8 vaccine and 162 placebo events

  • What evidence does Jaafar and Bullard give us to devastate this PCR fraud these? What did we know yet disregard? What evidence did the CDC and FDA pretend not to exist on PCR false-positives?

Dr. Paul Alexander

That Pfizer went to FDA with 170 events in total, 162 placebo control group and 8 in the intervention group, to get a FDA authorized EUA for a
safety untested vaccine for hundreds of millions if not billions globally, that we know today is ineffective and harmful, deadly…who do we jail first? That really is the question…who do we jail first? That they would unblind the studies knowing we would never then be able to get the efficacy/effectiveness and harms data ‘in the future’, at any time as now the placebo got the intervention. These really are academic scientific frauds.

What did Jaafar and Bullard warn us about as to the fraud over-cycled PCR test? Why has Pfizer not explained the specifics on the PCR testing in their trial?

Does anyone really think that this fraud will result in ANYONE going to jail?

HEALTH: Why you shouldn’t take “the jab”

https://thefreethinker.substack.com/p/why-i-dont-want-your-shot-updated?s=r

No, I Don’t Want Your Shot. Here’s Why. (UPDATED: Apr 23/22)
77 reasons (and growing)
James Edward Taylor
Apr 22

*** begin quote ***

Broadly, they break down into four categories:

1. I’m not convinced of the safety. (37 reasons)

2. I’m not convinced of the necessity. (11 reasons)

3. I’m not convinced of the efficacy, (i.e., it’s not working.) (15 reasons)

4. I’m not convinced of the honesty of the actors involved. (14 reasons)

Put positively, at this point, I’m convinced these shots are not safe, not necessary, not efficacious, and that the actors involved have been dishonest in manipulating public opinion for their products.

Follow the links I provide. Think. Decide for yourself.

*** end quote ***

For me the most overwhelming items are “the honesty of the actors involved”.

Make up your mind.

I have.
