Delivery services. Similar issues here. Usually I start any shipping no later than early December and even then it was was slowed. Sending a week and a half before Christmas is a pain. They may say one thing but guess that depends on who’s handling it along the way.

Zerohedge Sucks, It’s Typical Gov’t Media. I Never Liked Going There And Got Sucked In On the 9:24 slot

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 13:31 on December 22, 2019  

I clicked on that zero hedge link, and I got “danger” pop-ups, “my windows 10 is corrupted” click here or there to fix it. Then I couldn’t even X out. Every time I tried they kept popping up, two pop-ups.

I was forced to do “Alt Control Delete” I never liked that site and rarely went there. Big unnecessarily long stories saying nothing. The bigger the story the bigger the lies. And who the HELL is Tyler Durden??? Search “Tyler Durden zero hedge” and see for yourself.

“Tyler Durden” is really Daniel Ivandjiisk a Bulgarian. Zero Hedge owner ABC Media???

part: Zero Hedge in-house content is posted under the pseudonym “Tyler Durden”; however, the founder and main editor was identified as Daniel Ivandjiisk a Bulgarian.

Look here:

re Gundlach predictions, Somebody, anybody, needs to tell us where the inflation is lacking,

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 13:00 on December 22, 2019  

Real estate? Stock values? Medical insurance? Hospital stays? Police salaries? Around here its $167,000 k average, which is what’s needed to be middle class these days after taxes.

Back in the 1970s when Paul Volker raised rates to 21% from 6% to stop “inflationary psychology”, they blamed “high wages” of the United Auto workers Union etc for causing inflation. Meanwhile it was caused by money creation 1934 to 1971. Low rates did not cause inflation, or the blame, meaning high rates were not the correct cure.

After 1971 high rates pulled money out of circulation, into dead money CDs Bonds etc. Can’t be spent into the economy. Deflationary ’70s really, even though prices got higher. Without higher rates as a head wind, soaking up money in circulation, climbing prices would have been much much worse.

Well, if the bozo Bankers and their Media blamed high wages for the higher prices of the 1970s? They why don’t they promote and or cause higher wages to bring back “inflation”? Isn’t Gundlach supposed to know these things???

 

Gundlach predictions – always an interesting read

Posted by Buygold @ 9:24 on December 22, 2019  

“The dollar is putting a “significant top,” Gundlach said. Its last top was in January 2017. The dollar has been “incredibly stable” this year, he said. “I expect the dollar to weaken, since the Fed is easing.” It was strong because of “yield starvation” across the globe. Foreigners need to buy U.S. bonds because of their yields, but can’t hedge their exposure back to local currencies, because it will drive their effective yields back below zero. Those investors must buy U.S. bonds “naked,” he said, driving the dollar up.”

“The copper-gold ratio suggests that the 10-year should be approximately 2%, according to Gundlach. Based on nominal 10-year GDP and the German bund yield, an indicator he has found to be highly reliable, the projected 10-year yield is 1.76% to 1.9%, depending on the next release of nominal GDP.

At the end of October, Powell said that he needs to see a significant spike in inflation before raising rates. “The Fed is basically telling you it wants sustained real inflation before it would consider raising rates,” Gundlach said. “Maybe they will cut rates, but they won’t raise them. I am surprised the long end of the market isn’t weaker.”

https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/11/the-strange-tale-of-quadriga-gerald-cotten

When Canadian blockchain whiz Gerald Cotten died unexpectedly last year, hundreds of millions of dollars in investor funds vanished into the crypto ether. But when the banks, the law, and the forces of Reddit tried to track down the cash, it turned out the young mogul may not have been who he purported to be.

Under the Mastermind Theory, Cotten ran Quadriga much as he had S&S Investments and its successors, honoring enough withdrawal requests to maintain credibility. The plan, from the beginning, would be to keep the con going as long as possible before vanishing with the money. After Bitcoin collapsed—and the withdrawal complaints turned into lawsuits, negative press, and the threat of a formal investigation—Cotten got married, wrote a will, flew to India for his “honeymoon,” and disappeared.

If the Mastermind Theory seems far-fetched, it’s worth pointing out that an exit scam can only succeed if it seems far-fetched. Cotten built his career on the insight that most people are willing to believe most of what they are told most of the time. Gerry the Mastermind would count on the world believing he was reckless, greedy, and dead. He would count on most people to forget all about him. Most people, a year after his death, already have.

In October, Robertson signed a settlement in the Quadriga bankruptcy case, agreeing to forfeit approximately C$12 million of assets to the creditor class. In a statement released by her lawyer, she said she had no knowledge of Cotten’s “improper” business practices and “was upset and disappointed” when she learned of them through the investigation. She expressed a desire to “move on with the next chapter of my life.” She may have to change her name one more time in order to do so.

If Gerry the Mastermind is alive, what is he doing? He would have new names and passports, perhaps a new face. He might still be collaborating with Patryn, or Patryn might be trying to track him down in a final act of Con vs. Con. Cotten may be hoping Robertson will join him once all the investigations have concluded, or she may be just another one of his victims. He might be living on a private island, or in Hong Kong, Thailand, or Monaco, traveling by yacht and helicopter and private jet. He might even be eating cheeseburgers and drinking beer. Gerry the Mastermind might think he will get away with it. And he will—as long as everyone else believes he hasn’t.

Post Office having difficulties this Holiday season

Posted by Maya @ 0:48 on December 22, 2019  

I have never experienced so many mis-directed packages from USPS as I have this season.  I guess maybe the extra holiday hired help is a bit inexperienced?  Twice in the past week I have had a package mis-directed from the Honolulu distribution center when someone apparently slipped up one number on the Zip code routing keyboard.  Each package was directed to a community on a different island.  Each had to be sent back to Honolulu and directed properly… two days later.

Today I am tracking a package… 3-day Priority… from Arizona.  It spent two days in transit to… Providence, RI.   Not anywhere near the Hawaii Zip Code.  Don’t know what happened there, but it is certainly not going to make it to Hawaii by Christmas.  Oh, well.
