Apple Card – How It Works – Apple

Wednesday, July 31, 2019

Buy things in stores, on websites, and in apps. Or make a payment on your Apple Card. Or pay back a friend in Messages. Or send it straight to your bank account and watch it add up. The money on your Apple Cash card can be spent using your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac.

If there’s no number on the physical card, how do you type it in if you buy something on website?

Also named for a type of clothing: Pocketing. It’s when your significant other has built a wall between you and their family. It’s a huge red flag— it means they don’t see a future with you, so they’re not going to bother introducing you to the important people in their life.

FINANCIAL: Why youngsters will always be broke!

Monday, July 29, 2019

2019-Jul-29

All, and I mean ALL, the youngsters I know, and I know at least a dozen, will always be broke because they are financially illiterate. Thanks to financially illiterate Gooferment Skrules, parents, and relatives.

Despite having suggested it often — to the point of making myself bored — not one of them, NOT one, has set up any kind of a sinking fund bank account.

Case in point, a certain young lady was give a car.  I strongly suggested that she take the cost of the car ~18k$ and divide it by an estimated life of 70k miles which would translate to ~26¢ per mile.  Then, she should deposit each week an amount equivalent to number of miles driven times 25 cents.  (Even the Gooferment Skrules mathematically challenge can divide by four for the number of dollars to be “saved”.)

Guess what?

Never did it and guess who’s car just clocked 70k miles?  And, now guess who’s in a quandary as repair bills start to come in (i.e., tires, brakes, belts, etc. etc. etc.).

And she is not alone.  EVERY one is in the same boat.

Financially illiteratacy “costs” lives, happiness, and relationships.

Nie mój cyrk, nie moje małpy . . . literally, “not my circus, not my monkey;” figuratively, “not my problem.” — Polish saying

And I am the grumpy old cynic!

Where Do We Go From Here?*, by L. Neil Smith

Sunday, July 28, 2019

Novelist Victor Koman was dead right, when he said (in his great work, Kings of the High Frontier) that the actual mission of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration—its not-so-hidden agenda, having nothing to do with the development of space travel and exploration—is to keep scum like you and me from ever getting into space.

Donald Trump Taunts Nancy Pelosi and ‘Failing’ San Francisco

Sunday, July 28, 2019

“Speaking of failing badly, has anyone seen what is happening to Nancy Pelosi’s district in San Francisco.” Trump wrote on Twitter. “It is not even recognizable lately. Something must be done before it is too late.”

I agree with his calling out “shitholes”, wether they be foreign countries or American cities.

It’s especially embarrassing when they are American Cities.  I notice that they all have D’s mayors and representatives.

Wonder when “We, The Sheeple” in those cities will wake up?

Argh!

Whistling Past The $70 Trillion Debt Graveyard

Sunday, July 28, 2019

Authored by Lance Roberts via RealInvestmentAdvice.com, Market Review & Update Last week, we discussed the setup for a near-term mean reversion because of the massive extension above the long-term mean. To wit: “There is also just the simple issue that markets are very extended above their long-term trends, as shown in the chart below.

When this self-induced tragedy hits, “We, The Sheeple” will have no one to blame but their voting to blame.  Get rid on incumbents!  It doesn’t matter who you vote for, just not the incumbent.  Can they possible be worse?  What can they do it two years that can not be fixed by voting them out too.

Argh!
