Morning Reads for January 7, 2019

We are one week out from the most wonderful time of the year, also known as the Legislative Session. I know, we don’t all share my general enthusiasm on this particular subject, but y’all let me have this, ok?

From this morning’s AJC: It didn’t take long to expose problems with the Atlanta Region Transit Link Authority (ATL) ethics. Exhibit A, Earl “we’ll show those take a knee KSU cheerleaders a thing or two” Ehrhart. He’s a legislative has-been now on the ATL board lobbying for a disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) seeking subcontract business from a MARTA contractor. Ehrhart had sway over the law that created the ATL Board he got himself appointed to. The ATL Board controls MARTA expansion. No worries though. Ehrhart has long opposed affirmative action, so you know the firm he’s lobbying for is one… Read more »

I debated whether to even post this. But I’m posting it probably to the consternation of The Libs. This morning I covered my Apple puts! I got ’em about three months ago. Made an absolute wad!!!! Y’all remember Y2k?! Well, 2019 is N150k!!!! And the worst part for y’all? Since DTM is a subscriber to my financial website, he took my sage advice. He made an absolute ton!! Lol! Looks like the panic has ended. Looks like the economy is doing great, the Fed has probably stopped raising rates, and likely to get a trade deal soon. It looks all… Read more »

I’m not sure why you think investing and planning is not a consternation of what you define as ‘The Libs”.

As to your interest rate issue… This is not something new…

You don’t think others made a killing in the market? Just because you go all braggy doesn’t mean any of us have to.

I’d invite you, Shriv, but just the mention of your name results in uproarious laughter every time it’s uttered. DTM and his posse, to include Bofadeez, will be making the next Meeting at Myrtle’s!

Don’t forget the Legend, Mudda F —-a, Spider Man, and Hollywood…dey all gonna be there!

Yep despite the socialists, America soldiers on! Noway, your sage advice is worth every penny!

Ellyn it could be since liberals claim Wall St. is rigged and encourage everyone to protest and get their kiddies to go up and Occupy Wall St. Too bad the little goobers will have written off the best compounding machine on earth!

I would personally teach them how to harness the powers of compound interest. Something that socialist, communist victims have little chance to take advantage of. What a shame to have kids warped for life like that…

That requires believing in capitalism…and that is none to easy in liberal land any more. Sadly.

Fundamentals don’t matter huh? The market mirrors earnings over time. Sure there is a ton of volatility….go buy a bunch of expensive stocks with little to no earnings and see how that works for out for you. Just follow a tried and true guy like Buffett. That will never change over time.

I didn’t say I agreed or disagreed with the thesis, I said I found it interesting. How often does one apply an Epsilon Theory to something?

Ellyn, Pacific Gas and Electric may be in bankruptcy for being sued for causing fires in California. Holding a utility liable for fires and mass destruction– not just a single house fire for example- and tying that to climate change seems a bit over the top to me… Now the left wants to sue oil companies out of existence —and without them we would have mounds of horse dung and polluted waters everywhere on earth. Fossil fuels have fueled the world’s economic growth for a hundred years and cleaned the environment. Why not sue every person living that every started… Read more »

Fossil fuels have cleaned the environment? Let that sink in, commentariat.

Manana noche…
We’ll see TGM tell the nation that we’ve had a national emergency for the last 50 years and he’s freaking tired of it and he’s gonna uphold his oath of office to protect and defend! Lordy, lordy!!

Won’t be first time Trump has vastly exaggerated the size of something. Won’t be the last.

She’s unable to do her job. America deserves a 9 person Supreme Court. Time for her to retire.

I’m not sure I follow. The article says she’s working from home. I guess people aren’t allowed to get cancer these days, huh?

You didn’t have an issue in 2016 when we went a year with only 8 judges…

Sure as hell didn’t. That vacancy was caused by a death. And they then followed the Biden Rule of not confirming a successor during an election year. Please don’t go snarky like Shrivler, Sis. You’re smarter and better.

The woman hasn’t missed a day of oral argument in 25+ years at SCOTUS. She takes one day off because of f-ing CANCER and Noway acts like she’s some kind of freeloader.

RBG is in better shape than Noway’s fat rear end and he’s got the gall to ask her to resign. LOL.

Ellynn

Can we get a source cited proving Noway has a fat rear end please? Thanks.

Ellyn, Noway’s wife got pissed at him for giving her a treadmill a few years ago ’cause he thought so she could work off a few lbs…well she can now bounce a quarter off her behind and she has made him do the same thing or else…because the woman has a carry permit and aint afraid to use it.

He aint a blob like he used to be.. no sir. The boy is cut. Fit. Sort of like Chuck Norris! I would not say abs of steel but better dan most!

Ellynn

You do realize DTM, I was picking on Andrew who was the one who stated Noway had a ‘fat rear end’ and I asked him for a source to prove his name calling factual…?

I swear you two need lessons in sarcasm and irony.

I need a lesson in SARCASM!!! I LOVE IT! I may the most sarcastic blankety blanker on the planet! But I can always improve and coming from you, I will certainly work on it! Now I am sure you will agree young lady, that one snowflake on this blog needs to work on his sense of humor something “turble”….as Charles Barkley would say. He is so miserable all the time and wound tighter than Dick’s hat band. The boy aint no fun at all. But it sure is fun to make fun of him!

So…

Your occasional semi-coherent replying to sarcasm with overwrougth ADHDish ramblings unrelated to the original topic at hand and eventually ending in proses of dire anti-socialism drival that are so over dramatic and depressing it would make a goth teenager envious, are actually – on purpose?

Good to know…

Just pointing out a fact. A Justice is a life time appointment unless they are impeached, or leave on their own. If she wants to stay untill she dies, that is a justices’ right.

She’s already hired clerks for 2020. They’re gonna have to wheel her out in a body bag it looks like.

Plus, she’s killing it for an 85 year old…

You think Trump sent a text to that Barrett judge – just to give her a heads-up?

Yea, Trump has her on speed dial!! There goes Roe V Wade. Does anyone know the leading cause of death in America? Nothing is even close?

Just likes it’s The Pope’s right for that lifetime thingy, too. But just as Benedict did the right thing when HIS health failed, we will see RBG do the same in the coming months.

Since DTM was asking last week what Mueller has to do with accessing a defendants nude selfie, the judge was none to please with the lawyer harassing the Special counsel. It should be noted referencing Animal House in a federal petition and accusing a judge as being bias because they scolded a lawyer for being unprofessional is not a really bright defense plan…

You know, the same people who believe Trump embodies every form of evil ever conceived also believe Bruce Jenner is a woman! LMAO!
