EconomicPolicyJournal.com: Fed Chairman Jay Powell Goes Full Denial

Thursday, November 14, 2019

However, this doesn’t mean I hold the view that we aren’t in a Federal Reserve-manipulated boom-bust business cycle. We are and it will eventually bust. Though, I expect the first crisis to emerge will be an unanticipated acceleration in price inflation.

The Federal Reserve Bank is a misnomer. IT ain’t “federal”. It reserves nothing. And, it ain’t a “bank”. It is a private cartel of the elite banks run for their benefit and that of the entrenched politicians.

​I’m a believer and big fan.  The watch detected and alerted before any human had a clue.  And, I was in the cardiac care unit at the time.  It took the docs the better part of a week and me finally having bad symptoms ​necessitating a trip to the ER to get a clue.
YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary)  but I wear mine all the time.
Forewarned is forearmed.

Heartwarming moment bus driver pulls over to save two kids with no jackets on in 18F weather | Daily Mail Online

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Nicole Chamberlain saw the two youngsters during her rounds at around 8am on Monday morning in Waukesha. Bitterly cold weather and wind chills made the temperature feel like just 3F there.

Good work by this woman!

Children are “escape artists” at heart.  Can’t watch them carefully enough.

Have to keep the doors locked and chained to prevent this.

INOVATION: Researchers Create a Metal Structure That Will Not Sink or Stay Submerged Under Water

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

Even more remarkable is that the trapped air remains trapped almost indefinitely, which the researchers discovered after deliberately submerging one of their aluminum water-repelling sandwiches underwater for two whole months after which it immediately floated back to the surface once released.

VETERANS: Veterans’ Day should be renamed to Armistice Day

Monday, November 11, 2019

Pro-war propaganda
Tom Woods

*** begin quote ***

Pro-war propaganda.

A fellow I do a fair amount of business with posted on social media today that this is not a day for “antiwar propaganda.”

Nonsense.

Veterans’ Day was originally Armistice Day, in commemoration of the cessation of hostilities in World War I. The armistice was signed in the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, in 1918.

For four years, Europe tore itself apart, and sent millions of men into a meat grinder for no good reason. Tens of thousands would die, and the front would move a matter of yards.

Especially on this hundredth anniversary of the original Armistice Day, how does anyone seriously expect to honor the fallen without any discussion of the madmen who sent them into this horror?

Did their deaths occur in some abstract realm, outside time, space, and causation?

Or were they killed in specific ways, under orders from particular people?

Anyone speaking in mere platitudes today is an enemy of mankind.

The left-liberals and neoconservatives alike, who always seem to put aside their pretend differences when an idiotic war is in the offing, and who make saccharine speeches about democracy and openness and peace, are enemies of mankind.

As a reminder of how deranged our cultural elite and political establishment are, how many major political figures of the past hundred years have been dismissed from polite society for urging too much war?

There are lots of things that get you demonized and ostracized in America, but that ain’t one of them.

Usually it gets you called a “statesman.”

This is deranged.

Especially on Veterans Day should we speak out against war and the lying propagandists who foment them.

And the state cheerleaders who make excuses for them. (Why, Saddam really did have WMDs! etc.)

Especially culpable are the so-called conservatives who claim to distrust government propaganda — and yes, they’re indeed very sound on the milk subsidies question — but who can’t ape that Pentagon press release fast enough.

To hell with all of them.

*** end quote ***

The best way to “celebrate” Veterans’ Day is DEMAND that “we” stop creating so many of then, and “wasting” their lives,  IMMEDIATELY.

Never met a vet who disagreed.

NEWJERSEY: What’s Murphy hiding with his gag order on women who worked for him? | Moran – nj.com

Sunday, November 10, 2019

Murphy must be hiding misbehavior by his staff. Why else would he stretch out a fight that puts him solidly on the side of Harvey Weinstein in the growing debate over gag orders?
