Pathetic story. Doesn’t break down savings rate by income, just points out that not many people are using 401k plans. There’s plenty of doctors out there with 0 savings and plenty of working families making 60k a year with a few hundred thousand.

It’s not showing wealth inequality, it’s showing intelligence inequality.

And to take a step back. It’s not your fucking money. The only reason why my 401k has more then yours is because I choose to drive older cars, live in smaller houses and save the difference. You aren’t “struggling”. You refused to live within you means your whole life then you hit 65 and “401k doesn’t work. It’s unfair, he has more then me”. At a certain point people need to be held accountable for their dumb decisions. Sorry.

I wish all these stupid academics, do-nothings, bloviating tenured Piled Higher and DEEPER assholes, would shut the fuck up about the economy. They don't know shit.

If we had listened to such geniuses like lefty hero Paul Krugman, or other lefty economic guru Kurt Eichenwald , I literally would have left over a million dollars on the table listening to their "doom and gloom" shitty predictions and theories.



I don't have fuck you money, but combined with my investments in precious metals, couple of properties, and how hot the market has been, I'm planning to retire with nearly $5,000,000+ to spend in retirement, with stupid low living expenses (I even grow my own veggies now and never buy produce from the store).

The economy is red fucking hot. Asians and whites have near 2% unemployment, and blacks and Hispanics are both sub 5%.People are working, buying lots of iPhones and Samsung TVs, and in general we're in a mini-golden age of economic mobility when democrats were trying to tell anyone who would listen over the past 3 years that a recession was going to crush us.

China is suffering (and most of asia as well). FDI has fallen off a cliff in Asia, and Domestic loans have skyrocketed as China tries to stabilize their own firms. The tariffs are kicking China's ass badly. They'll make a deal or suffer a shrinking economy, their choice, lots of other emerging markets looking to steal that FDI cash.

Anyway, when I want accurate information from some derp derp PhD, I'll ask them about how they keep their 22 year old beige Volvo running after all these years while I discuss actual economics with the people who didn't have to resort to teaching to make a living.

It's weird about California. One can't figure out how it manages to be so alienating while so beautiful. There are people who have lived here for 25 years and say they don't have any real friends. It seems to be one of the reasons there is so much crazy. People will prefer dysfunctional attention seeking and fighting in exchange for complete lack of reliable support networks.

Sometimes, they move somewhere else, and they are shocked that they have real friends within the first 6 months.

I was pinched on the butt by a woman a few years ago. I was in a wetsuit and was walking up the stairs with my surfboard and she was behind me. She reached up and grabbed my butt cheek hard. When I looked back, I was shocked, but she was leering. Strange thing, she was with a little kid, too. Never happened before or since.

I am no spring chick, I took it as a compliment.

I guess I should have started shrieking like a ninny snowflake and sued her to stay consistent with the times.

This act simply defines Anti-semitism as part of the federal discrimination laws, namely Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

This bill disallows college authorities from giving in to the Far Left and boycotting Israel while they receive Federal Money.

The real purpose is prevent what is happening in the UK and Europe, where colleges are banning Jewish speakers and scientists from jobs and events based on BDS.

If colleges/public universities want to participate in BDS, they're free to do so without Federal Funding.

If a college endorses "We Levantine Arab sharecroppers are the only legit inhabitants of Israel, therefore we will not buy any Israeli-made goods." they loose funding.

It defends Freedom because Federally supported schools should not make foreign policy. If students don't want to buy Humus, that's up to them. If the school, under Paleban pressure, refuses to buy some Israeli Anti-Virus Scanner, that is NOT up to them. They have to treat the Israeli company like any other vendor in a bidding process.

There's a lot of things this should include, such as anti-male, anti-American, and anti-Western ideology. For example, creating "No White" Events should result in suspended/withheld federal funds as well. Frankly, any Gender/Race/Religion based events at a college that exclude others should result in funding suspensions.

Hi Goran_P: I think you mentioned on a thread a while ago that you left California.

Would you mind sharing a report card with us about your relocation? Maybe you can share about quality of life changes good or bad for your immediate family members. Thanks!

Leftists are so easy to poke fun at! It’s all the inconsistency and flat out contradiction in their ideologies. I guess it’s a skill I don’t have... a sort of mental juggling that enables them to simultaneously believe two or three opposite things to such a degree that they are ready to punch anyone who can’t manage it!

How would you react ( and I am assuming that you are a man) by being slapped on the butt by an unknown man ( maybe he is gay)

I had my ass grabbed by a drunk womyn in a hotel a few years ago (there was some kind of reunion/party with a lot of drunk people roaming around in hotel where I stayed). No big deal, just said "lady, I am not interested, knock it off" and that was it.

Of course, I should have escalated it by calling police, suing the hotel and her, and crying about my feewings being hurt...

Give it a swedo altruistic name, promise to use it for a fake benign and public serving targeted purpose, then just acquisition it and squander it for whatever crooked accounting that you please. That's the California Government Way.

Because the police in California no longer respond to property crime, it keeps the nominal crime artificially down. No reports accepted=no crime. It makes them and the politicians look better while the citizens eat the shit. There is LOTS more crime than what is nominally registered, and even then, the authorities probably lie about it.

Agreed. Krugsheister is one of the worst. The last 2 years I made more money ...


Precisely. Most of these people are Bernie type socialists anyway and wouldn’t work even if they had the opportunity. Lazy government theft supporters who would rather Uncle Bernie give them”free shit” stolen from the productive sector of the work force.

Gotta love Krugman though, telling people of a huge recession ready to hit in late 2016. Then the market goes on basically a 36 month straight hot streak (with a slight slowdown in Fall 2018 due to trade war worries).

Now no one is worried about a trade war because China is the only one getting fucked. The rest of us are making money hand over hand like crazy.

The “resist types” are still crying over 2016, I’m giddy looking at what I’m going to invest in next during Trumps 2nd term. So much opportunity out there.

It's true! Everyone here lived in a cave and subsisted on grubs and tree bark and communicated in grunts and hand gestures until TRUMP! invented civilization, language and commerce!

The truth is that even economists who opposed Trump’s tax cuts and tariffs are surprised by how badly they’re working out.

20 years from now history will record that Trump and his advisors (and the US military) realized that China is trying to take over the world... first they'll buy / steal a bunch of 3rd-world countries in Africa, then they'll expand to South America, and from there the western world. Instead of war, fighting, bailing out indebted African nations, etc, etc, etc, Trump's tariffs — brilliantly — crash China's economy and thwart their expansionist plans.

or...
20 years from now history will record that Trump and his advisors realized that China cares nothing about pollution, human rights, strip-mining the world, (and global warming, if you're into that sort of thing), etc. Other than a war, what to do? Trump's tariffs — brilliantly — crash China's economy and reduce that problem.

Why do you support communist slave labor from a country that doesn't care about the environment?

Still waiting on an answer for this one.


Because most lefty assholes would rather we weaken the US economy and even go into a recession so "Trump loses".

Fucking fags.

Just becasue it's way way less dense outside of major metro areas. What does that have to do with the sustainability of much higher populations ? Our oceans are already polluted and over fished, with growing "dead zones." Not to mention global warming and other pollution.

Even just having the current global population, do you think it would be sustainable to have all the worlds people now consuming the way Americans do ?

If they officially "take them in" it's hard to see them as "illegal."


So if a law was passed to force “illegals” into your house, that would be okay right? It would be hard to see those people as “illegal”.

Brexit is all but assured, but hopefully it will be of the Out Now variety.


I hope so too, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

Our owners don't like Brexit, so they are going to keep delaying it. Messes with their plans for an infinite supply of cheap labor to undercut middle class wages and their plans to completely erase national identities. Those identities are a threat to global capital. The people might discover national unity and then vote for policies which benefit the actual citizens of Britain instead of the global elite. Can't have that!

My partner grew up in the Central Valley and me in Santa Clara Valley. We have local friends just like you would in your hometowns, too.
Especially lots of my partner, in her 'hood in the Central Valley. Of mine here in SJ, more than half are gone. As far as I know, all but one of those who left driven away by the crowded overpriced low quality of life. Replaced by people with a different set of values, immigrant hustlers or careerists from other parts of the US.

It's not California that is dysfunctional. It's the people who are attracted to live here. Like Ceffer said they view us as losers.
