This Is How It Begins (Wanton Violence)

This Is How It Begins (Wanton Violence)

austin tx plane crash, courtesy of tbi, apThis is not the sort of thing you want to report on.

But I need to, because what looked like an accident originally – a horrible accident, with a plane on approach that had some sort of mechanical problem - now looks to be something else.

AUSTIN, TX (myFOXaustin) – A small aircraft plane has crashed into a 7-story office building in North Austin near Mopac and 183. The plane crashed into the Echelon building around 10 a.m. Thursday morning. Police have blocked off access roads around the building.

….

According to Corp. Scott Perry with APD several federal offices were located inside the building that was struck by the plane.  Officials with NTSB say that IRS offices were some of the federal offices.

CNBS is reporting that there is "no indication that this was an act of terrorism or otherwise intentional."  Oh really?  Then how come CNBC is claiming on-air that the man involved set fire to his own house first?  Oh, and Fox News just stated that the name of the pilot was…. Mr. Joe Stack.

Uh…. what’s this?

I know I’m hardly the first one to decide I have had all I can stand.  It has always been a myth that people have stopped dying for their freedom in this country, and it isn’t limited to the blacks, and poor immigrants.  I know there have been countless before me and there are sure to be as many after.  But I also know that by not adding my body to the count, I insure nothing will change.  I choose to not keep looking over my shoulder at “big brother” while he strips my carcass, I choose not to ignore what is going on all around me, I choose not to pretend that business as usual won’t continue; I have just had enough.

I can only hope that the numbers quickly get too big to be white washed and ignored that the American zombies wake up and revolt; it will take nothing less.  I would only hope that by striking a nerve that stimulates the inevitable double standard, knee-jerk government reaction that results in more stupid draconian restrictions people wake up and begin to see the pompous political thugs and their mindless minions for what they are.  Sadly, though

Propane Supplies Fly Off Store Shelves As COVID Drives Outdoor Dining

Courtesy of ZeroHedge

Since the start of the virus pandemic, various consumer services such as restaurants, bars, and clubs have moved outdoors to reduce the risk of virus spread. 

As a result, supplies of propane tanks have been depleted across the country as demand for small cylinder tanks jumps 75% year on year. 

FT notes that hardware stores, such as Ace Hardware, Lowe's, and Home Depot, are having extreme difficulty keeping up with the demand for portable steel tanks as demand is off the charts. 

Propane Education & Research Council said demand for propane retail-size cylinders would be around 500 million gallons this year, up from 284 million...

These are the best quant hedge funds in the world

By Aman Jain. Originally published at ValueWalk.

That is why the quant funds are known to be innovative and highly technical offerings in the investment world. If you are also planning to invest in one, then detailed below are the best quant hedge funds.

TRUMP CONCEDES (SORT OF)

 

TRUMP CONCEDES (SORT OF)

Courtesy of Teri Kanefield

The Trump Legal team filed more documents today in the appellate court. I tweeted a bit about how silly they were (let me know if you all want me to march through them). Then this happened:

Trump giving the go-ahead for the transition to get underway was (I believe) the closest he will get to conceding the election. Two amusing things happened. First, Trump tweeted this about 10 minutes after Emily Murphy submitted a letter saying she would move forward, and that she has made her decisions solely on her own and not at anyone’s direction. Looks like Trump wanted people to think that she was, in fact, acting at his direction.

The other amusing part was that Tr...

COVID-19 Forces More Than Half of Asset Management Firms to Accelerate Adoption of Digital Marketing Technology

By Jacob Wolinsky. Originally published at ValueWalk.

There is no doubt that the use of technology to support client engagement initiatives brings both opportunities and threats but this has been brought into sharp focus this year with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The crisis has brought to the fore the need for firms to enable flexibility in client engagement – the expectation that providers will communicate to clients on their terms, at their speed and frequency and on their preferred channels, is now a given. This is even more critical when clients are experiencing unparalleled anxiety from both market conditions and their own personal circumstances.

Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling System Suggests Market Peak May Be Near

Courtesy of Technical Traders

Our Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system is suggesting a moderate price peak may be already setting up in the NASDAQ while the Dow Jones, S&P500, and Transportation Index continue to rally beyond the projected Fibonacci Price Expansion Levels.  This indicates that capital may be shifting away from the already lofty Technology sector and into Basic Materials, Financials, Energy, Consumer Staples, Utilities, as well as other sectors.

This type of a structural market shift indicates a move away from speculation and towards Blue Chip returns. It suggests traders and investors are expecting the US consumer to come back strong (or at least hold up the market at...

Texas, Florida, Arizona, Georgia – The Branch COVIDIANS Are Still Burning Down the House

Courtesy of Lee Adler, WallStreetExaminer 

The numbers of new cases in some of the hardest hit COVID19 states have started to plateau, or even decline, over the past few days. A few pundits have noted it and concluded that it was a hopeful sign. 

Is it real or is something else going on? Like a restriction in the numbers of tests, or simply the inability to test enough, or are some people simply giving up on getting tested? Because as we all know from our dear leader, the less testing, the less...
