Open Thread!!!


For the well-wishers, a sincere and deep thank you.  The surgery went fine, or so I’m told.  They put me out.  A side effect of being put under is that after the surgery and even though one is alert and orientated one sometimes has no memory of what was said, or if anything was said.  I’m told I received discharge instructions, but, I’ve no recollection.  Doesn’t matter.  I got my patch off today, and it looks fine, according to the doctor. 

I still can’t do too much up-close reading, today, but, there’s too much to say, so I’ll limit my posts and interaction.  Tomorrow and the following days should progressively get better. 

During the last couple of days, I was forced to endure CNN and MSNBC news on the waiting rooms’ TVs.  CNN seemed to dedicate yesterday to Hillary’s election campaign.  MSNBC dedicated their day to  ….. well, their average leftardedness. 

The similarities between Zero and Hillary were striking over the last couple of days.  While the news was shilling for her book sales, they interviewed Hillary.  Oddly, in an interview, someone asked about Benghazi.  Hillary said she took full responsibility, but, she was quick to add, she didn’t make the security decisions for each post.  ……  That’s sort of like taking full responsibility, except, not really taking responsibility. 

Team Zero, it seems, didn’t want to be outdone.  Zero said he’d do the Bergdahl swap again, but, team Zero was quick to add, it was Sec Hagel who made the call.  That’s sort of like saying he’d do it again, if he had actually done it the first time. 

Dems, there’s not a grownup in the entire group of idiots.

    I see that the regime makes sure the peons receive the necessary instruction. Forward!

    AH, you got to see Hillary cry poor mouth? WHat a ditz! I am beginning to think she is really more stupid than Obama. And that is not easy.

    Governments in the bankrupt empire start confiscating dormant bank accounts – where dormant is defined as no transactions for a certain time, ranging from 12 months (!!!) in parts of the USA to 15 years in Japan. Germany currently has no such legislation.

      Hmm, I wonder if there is more to this story. Anyway, abandoned properly laws have been around for some time. In Alabama, the State will ‘hold’ it for you for a period of time. I found that I had some property listed and I was able to get my property, fairly easily and quickly. What I do know is once the ‘hold’ period expires, the State does get title of any abandoned property and can liquidate it.

      I need to see if I can get some numbers, but my gut says that Alabama probably gets less than one percent of its revenues from abandoned property that was never claimed within the hold period.

        Ravenous appetite of states at the Keynesian endpoint. They will make up their justifications as they go along. Everyone who doesn’t move his money at least once a year is a terrorist; everyone who does is a money launderer; everyone who has cash in his pocket – shoot on sight as a crime is obviously ongoing! Well that should do it.

        I mean, the ECB just introduced negative interest rates – Denmark did that 2 years ago as a test already.

        Another interesting thing is, banks in Germany refuse to let you withdraw big chunks of money – at 50k EUR or so-; and even want to talk to you when you withdraw small amounts of money on a daily basis. These are small invisible possibly illegal capital controls.

        At the same time, you can move all your stuff from one bank to the other, no problem.

        System is very eager to keep what they have. This is all not spoken about in official media.

          I can see where folk like O want to bring that here, and using the anti-drug laws, RICO, etc. are perfect for that.

          When I opened a second stock depot a few days ago – to distribute my paper over 2 banks – I openly told the bank woman I’m doing it in anticipation of possible capital controls and bank collapses. She asked me 20 questions in return whether I ever visited the US, have anything to do with the US, whether I’m a citizen and so on. They’d rather advise a Colombian drug cartel on money laundering than doing business with an Ami, it’s that bad! So all those Mexicans are running the wrong direction it seems to me.

      No, 6 months! And that is federal. They do not seize it after 6 months (they do that after 1 year), but the lock it so you cannot do anything to it until you prove you are still alive. And that is even if you have active accounts at the same bank!!!

      I ran into that with a relatively small savings account. So I had to prove I was still alive (even though my primary checking account was with the same bank).
