Why do I suspect that “We, The Sheeple” are getting screwed?

Where’s the sword behind the matador’s cape?

No way all these folks would agree on something unless there is an ulterior motive.

“Now for the bad news. If it becomes law, the SECURE Act would require most non-spouse IRA and retirement plan beneficiaries to drain inherited accounts within 10 years after the account owner’s death.”

I told you to suspect something bad was coming!

Ridgecrest earthquake mystery: Why so little destruction from huge temblors? – Los Angeles Times

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

And because they are newer, the single-family homes in Ridgecrest lacked the vulnerability of many Southern California and Bay Area pre-1980 wood-frame houses built with a handful of steps above the ground. Sharp shaking can snap the wood supports connecting such homes to their foundations. A retrofit to brace and bolt the structure can cost several thousands of dollars — but repairing the problem after a quake can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Now that’s an interesting factoid and something property owners would be well advised to remedy.  Wonder if their property insurance rates reflect this risk?  Be dumb if the insurance companies don’t action that item!

Alan Dershowitz, Jeffrey Epstein’s former lawyer, claims plea deal was fair and would do it again – CBS News

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

The high-profile lawyer who defended Jeffrey Epstein in his 2008 sex abuse case in Florida and helped negotiate what many have criticized as a lenient plea deal says he had no idea about the extent of the allegations against Epstein when he defended him more than a decade ago but insists he would do it all over again.”I would try to get a better deal. The job of a criminal defense attorney is to try to get the best possible deal,” he said.

Absolutely correct.  If anyone is to be taken to task, then it’s the prosecutorial side.  Now could we have a list of EVERYONE of Epstein’s political “friends” who interceded on his behalf to get the deal?  That might make for interesting reading and an investigation of where “those bodies” are buried.  Any wagers on who Epstein will roll over on to get out of this jam?

(My money would be on WJC!)
