Well, it won't be long before Mackey is bowing to the mob.  Just like Chick Fila A's CEO:
  • Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy recently shined the shoes of a Black man on stage to make a point about fighting racism and repenting.

whole foods is no longer independent. Because the ceo was rather opinionated, Amazon bought up whole foods. Now it follows orders from Amazon, ultimately. 

Amazon will probably wait until former whole foods employees are phased out, then zog the place up.

True story. I work with a 21 year old black kid. I axed him where he stood on the trans issue, in front of several coworkers. He said he really had no position - hadn't really thought the matter through. Admitted that he found it confusing. He then axed me, "Why do you ax?"

I responded, "Because I am trans."

He said, "You're transgender?"

I told him, "No, I'm transracial."

He axed me how that worked, and I said, "Well, you can see that I'm a white guy - right? But I IDENTIFY as black. And because I IDENTIFY as black, that means I get to use the n word."

His response was immediate and adamant: "Oh no you don't! Oh no you don't!"

I said to him, "Why, Delanamore (name changed to protect the innocent). It looks to me like you HAVE taken a firm position on the trans issue." And there was much, much laughter all around.

Any of you economic geniuses ready to take a stab at telling the rest of us exactly what this crash is gonna look like. What the underlying and obvious precipitating factors are gonna be? Or are we just musing about another stock market correction?[/quote]

During the Carter administration Paul Volcker declared war on inflation.  With inflation at 10% he raised rates to 20%.  Inflation persisted and continued to rise until it hit 14.8%.  Unemployment skyrocketed at the same time.  Eventually the prime interest rates hit 21.5%.  It took 3 years to finally get inflation down to reasonable levels.  But once successful inflation has been curtailed to low levels.  Until recently.  Imagine a situation where the interest on a $200,000 equivalent home today being 60,000/year!  Imagine this following the discovery that your life's earnings of $5 million in today's dollars will purchase a #1 meal at McDonalds just 4 weeks later.  Imagine your savings and the savings of everyone you know vanishing overnight.  Store shelves empty and massive unemployment.  This combined with subjugation of the nations of the world (and likely our own) in the chaos.  But never fear Elizabeth Warren is on the task.

Using a realistic method to determine inflation suggests the real inflation level to be near 15.5%.  We are told this is a temporary phenomenon due to COVID.  We are already experiencing shortages and continued lock-downs remain problematic.  Fed policy since the asset buy-back beginning in 2010 has resulted in the prime rate being buried at 0% to shield the Treasury from interest on the debt.  So a primary tool at the FR disposal is no longer deployable.  If the Fed raised rates anywhere near 21.5% financing the $30T debt would be crushing.  The government could reduce spending to $0 and still couldn't meet it's obligations.  The inevitable consequence is the Treasury would be unable to sell Treasuries and would find itself unable to borrow outside of the FR just printing dollars.  This of course would cause even more inflation and begin a never ending positive feedback cycle which will rise without limits.  It will be the only method of balancing the governments accounts and as the World's reserve currency would have wide ranging impacts throughout the world.  Imagine if you will inflation so intense 150$ in your paycheck having the buying power of 1$ at the end of the day.  The government issuing $5 quintillion bills (that's $5,000,000,000,000,000,000).  So the government decides to convert quintillions to single dollars called Qdollars.  It issues a $1 Qd note and 1 month later begins minting $10 Million Qd notes.  This isn't make believe, it actually happened in Zimbabwe and to a similar extent in several other cases.  Now picture this occurring in the US dollar.  What Volcker did in 1980 isn't really an option to fight inflation due to the massive debt.

Djokovic flies out of Australia after losing court appeal

Get vaccinated, get tested or get TF out.  Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, "We are keeping our borders strong and keeping Australians safe."

Can't imagine you alt-right schmucks would be upset with the Australian government considering how keeping borders safe is so important to you...even though the Djoker is an anti-vaxxer.
Australia is not a real country so getting upset with its government is totally pointless. Protecting its borders is also pointless. 

But I do find it very amusing that the powers that be are so obsessed with people taking a vaccine that doesn't really work for a virus that isn't very bad. You have to be a bit dumb to not realize there is some malicious reason for this. 

I guess this athlete isn't dumb.

Things that didn’t stop the virus:

- lockdowns
- closing businesses
- masks
- plastic shields
- social distancing
- closing schools
- the vaccine.

But Conservatives are the “science - deniers”

[quote="Vegas" post_id=1919889 time=1642450690 user_id=1050]
As some may be aware, I have a strong dedication to education. I have always maintained that there cannot possibly be a negative effect on creating an educated populace. This is a good article on why poor students underperform in school. It isn't because they are stupid. Kids from poor families don't have the basic needs taken care of such as food, shelter, clothes, and parental involvement. How does a child learn when they are hungry? They may eat a **** meal at school, and that is it for the rest of the day. 

Here is what the research found: 
[list]
[*]Poor families who received an extra $3000 in government assistance had a significant increase in test scores vs those who did not receive assistance. 
[*]There is no lack of data that shows a strong correlation between poverty and low educational performance. 
[/list]

A counter argument states that America spends more money per student than most any other nation on Earth, yet we still have poor performance with respect to the rest of the developed world. 

My response is that the money is not being allotted correctly. The money spent is used for books, teacher salaries, building costs, etc...It doesn't address the root cause, which is poverty. 

My solution is to follow the overwhelming research. Provide money to impoverished families so they can at least have three meals a day, a decent apartment/home, and the basic needs.[/quote]

With all due respect to your very valid points, I've really got to ask how it is that those poor who you refer to that send their kids to school hungry, are either not taking advantage of the federal food stamp program, or are simply not spending it for it's intended purposes for their children.  I refuse to believe that those recipients can't afford to spend a couple of bucks a day of that welfare money to give their kid a couple of eggs and toast for breakfast, and a tuna sandwich for lunch.  This isn't and should not be the responsibility of the schools, nor should the hard-working taxpayer be forced to pay for those meals twice, first for the food stamp fund and later to pay a stipend to the school. 

Before I'd ask taxpayers to spend another $3000 per family, I'd want to see why their parents are not taking their responsibility seriously, and not simply cover up their abuse of that welfare they're already getting.  And one more thing.  Before sending another nickel their way, they should be required to take a drug test, just to confirm that this is not where their welfare money is going.  Why shouldn't those taking welfare fall under the same criteria as those required to take a drug test prior to getting hired for a job?  How is it that one is perfectly acceptable, and the other is an inhumane and unfair requirement steeped in racism that causes such great humiliation?

Do you find that so unreasonable?
