Posted in: ¥48 bil in bitcoin cryptocurrency disappears from Japan exchange See in context

There is no one bitcoin company. These things can be mined, but the energy needed to do that gets higher all the time. Unless there is suddenly free electricity, you NOT just "order more".

recommend a booster shot for humor.

the words engraved across the supreme court building - equal justice under law - is going to sandblasted off soon. if there is any doubt at all, recuse yourself instead of parsing language.

and no mention of thomas, who has continuously flouted financial disclosure.

let’s build a separate “geisha land” amusement park with buses from the eki. a disneyesque facade copying the street with imitation geisha that everyone can take photos of and with.

food, photos, souvenirs, trinkets, cardboard geisha with cutouts to stick your face through. all for 9,000 entry fee.

anyone else want in?

Posted in: Jury finds Donald Trump guilty on all 34 counts at hush money trial See in context

unfortunately, this is only the beginning. trump will appeal to two higher new york courts, then to the u.s. supreme court after he loses those.

he was convicted by a jury of his peers in exactly the forum of how the u.s. legal system works. nothing in the trial or jury was rigged. his attorneys had the ability to exclude jurors for any reason during jury selection. they didn't even use their juror exclusion allotment.

if you are happy about this verdict, you better temper yourself. he ain't going to jail.

when this gets to the supreme court, that's were a rigged court now exists. the unhinged supreme court will overturn the conviction.

the u.s. is no longer a society with equal justice under the law, the engraving on the front of the supreme court building. the supreme court is now packed with ideology misfits.

War training isn't for fun. When I was in war games in Florida, a fighter got "target fixation" and jetted smack into a mountain. The plane was 2 ft. flat, and the pilot was in there. Two guys in a desert trench were crushed by a tank because in such a trench you can't tell from where the tank is coming.

my antenna are wiggling with this. was this an online game or a dream?

no mountains in florida. ears and eyes can tell you which way a tank is coming.

were you a navy seal, too? about 350 seals were in vietnam over 10+ years. i’ve met and heard of thousands of them telling their tales.

first time, white collar felons rarely serve prison time. he’ll be fined. the sentence might be some short duration of part time home custody and some community service, since he’s contrite and unapologetic about his guilt.

here’s where his attacks on the judge, prosecutors and the legal process will hurt him. the judge has wide latitude and having trump pick up litter for 10 days might put him in his place. it’s never smart to try to screw with a judge.

trump can vote in florida if he apples for return of voting rights after competing all sentencing requirements, including payment of fines and completion of court ordered remedies.

trump continues his unblemished record of guilty verdicts.

the real likelihood of prison is from the classified documents case. if he loses the election, the overwhelming evidence will see him found guilty and there is no escaping prison.

and that could be a years long prison sentence. wouldn’t that be something? no escaping that if he loses, regardless of judge cannon’s blatant bias and maneuvering for trump.

Posted in: Trump or Biden? Either way, U.S. seems poised to preserve heavy tariffs on imports See in context

american companies went to china decades ago and said build us everything so we can charge the same, but make more money.

china said, sure.

if you want to point fingers, point them at american company executives who sold out the american worker and manufacturers.

i remember very well when the 25% tariffs were enacted. i asked some people i knew who imported all their products how it impacted them. they laughed as they said they simply raised their prices 25%. best excuse they ever had to raise prices.

businesses want lower costs, consumers want lower prices.

buckle up for more inflation.

the u.s. hasn’t prepared itself in raw material supply chain.

you are the one who pays tariffs, not china.

@WoodyLee People do keep their seat belts fastened when sitting but there are always some passengers who are taking a bio-break or in-line for a bio-break who do not have seat belts fastened for obvious reasons.

have you ever been on an airplane?

thats a lot of people lining up for the bathroom.

i can’t remember being on a flight where the flight crew doesn’t ask passengers to keep their seatbelt fastened during their pre-flight announcement.

and the prosecution brought out on purpose cohen pocketing money to make up for trump trying to stiff him. showing, again, that cohen was no angel, but has come clean since then and is far more believable than trump.

Posted in: Michael Cohen says he stole from Trump's company as defense presses key hush money trial witness See in context

the real story of the day was the only witness called by the defense (cohen’s former short-lived legal advisor) went so badly that the judge cleared the courtroom to admonish him.

But not before the jury was laughing at his insane antics as he auditioned in front of trump for some position in the never-to-be trump administration.

complete looney tunes. he was telling the court reporter, while on the witness stand, to strike something from the record. haha. he even tried to stare down the judge after a ruling.

another trump loss, in his never-ending losses, since he insisted that his attorneys put the clown on the stand.

Yes we should have turned around earlier but we didn't realize how bad the weather was until we were in trouble. That bites a lot of pilots and not just us rotorheads.

i’m a fixed-wing guy. get thereitis and get homeitis in any aircraft at general aviation and rotary-wing altitudes and in weather is not something you want.
