There’s still hope for Lyft I guess.
I remember back during the the big Argentine default of 2001 I was on an overseas real estate website and I saw a piece of land which was literally the size of Delaware for sale for $1,000,000 US. I remember thinking that even if the land was deep in the barren steppe of Tierra del Fuego it still had to be a deal at that price. There would have to be minerals under there of some sort. All I had to do was find 1 million dollars.
Fed Ex was just indicted on charges that it helps facilitate the transport of illegal drugs, especially from Canadian pharmacies. (Where drugs are much less expensive.)
Why is it that these sort of programs never seem to help the people for which they are intended? Ever notice that?
There was a time when a bachelors degree was something pretty special. It was unusual for people to have one. Though still only 30% of the adult American population has a 4 year degree that is a lot more than in years past. More prosperous years.
Graduate degrees are also more common. Practically a whole generation has tried to wait out the Great Recession in college.
The one and only time I met Ron Paul was in his office in DC in 2007. I had long admired him and I had come to pitch Dr. Paul on becoming a client of mine. I was a fledgling stock broker and I thought I might be able to interest him in some gold stocks.
What’s funny is that as soon as I walked through the door of his office and he and I sat down I forgot all about doing business and we just talked politics and strategy for about 20-25 minutes.
I left his office with a deepened respect for the man. Something which rarely happens (I now know) after meeting a politician in person.
Well, there is a good bit of it on this website that’s for sure. And it is growing. Today crony capitalism is talked about openly. A few years ago few people knew the term. Read More
California, what are you doing to yourself? You were so beautiful. You were once full of so much life. So full of promise and opportunity. But now look at you. The Golden State isn’t very golden anymore. You are sinking into the big government (socialist?) morass more and more every year. You are run by the prison workers, teacher’s, and (apparently) the farm worker’s unions. It’s just a shame.
