Ethically Challenged Humans Getting Impaled On The Horns Of Their Own Unicorns

A report from Yahoo Money. “This week’s more than quarter-point jump in mortgage rates is sending a dire message to homebuyers and owners: Time is running out. ‘The short answer is it’s painful, I won’t lie. Rates have been escalating every single day for basically the last 45 days,’ Scott Sheldon, branch manager at New American Funding in California, told Yahoo Money. ‘It’s not very fun to be a mortgage originator in this environment. You quote one rate one day and it’s something different a few days later.'”

From Market Watch. “According to Black Knight, in January there was a seven-fold increase in foreclosure starts as compared to December, with roughly 33,000 loans referred to foreclosure. What’s more, ATTOM Data Solutions revealed that lenders repossessed 2,634 U.S. properties through completed foreclosures in February 2022, which is an increase of 70% from last year.”

The East Aurora Advertiser in New York. “Erie County Clerk Michael Kearns and the Stay In Your Home Campaign released a report on the Post-Moratorium Pre-Foreclosure Notices received by many homeowners across Erie County. ‘What Belmont counselors are seeing is that families in default have been unable to recover economically after either experiencing a loss of income, illness, having to stay home for the children, increase in expenses and are simply unable to resume the income they once had,’ stated Sandy Becker, Senior Housing Programs Director, Belmont Housing Resources of WNY. ‘The data shows it is affecting all communities and all income brackets. Homeowners just can’t catch up.'”

From Bisnow. “As much as 70% of U.S. office buildings face a loss in value in the near future, including roughly 30% of the nation’s inventory, or about $1.1T worth at current valuations, facing complete obsolescence, according to a new study by real estate consultancy Zisler Capital Associates. While that means 30% are safe, another 40% of the office building inventory is marginal, the study says. Many of those properties will need to be sold at prices low enough to justify the capital improvements necessary to bring them up to the energy efficiency and health standards of the near future.”

“‘The problems going forward are going to come from primarily markets that have sizable amounts of dated properties that are not particularly desirable to big drivers of demand these days,’ Trepp Senior Managing Director Manus Clancy told Bisnow. ‘You’ll see episodes in New York, Chicago and other places where big buildings that back loans with nine-figure balances become distressed.'”

From Esquire. “As another adaptation of a tech start-up scandal hits screens this week with AppleTV+’s WeCrashed, there’s something indescribably satisfying in watching so many fine actors portray ethically challenged humans getting impaled on the horns of their own unicorns. While watching the screeners for WeCrashed, I found myself thanking God, not so much for Monday or Friday, or any other day of the week, but for the invisible hand of the market, which has rendered this bonkers period in American business officially kaput.”

“In addition to WeCrashed on Apple TV+, on March 3, Hulu premiered The Dropout, which tells the story of Elizabeth Holmes (Amanda Seyfried), the disgraced, deep-voiced founder of blood-testing startup Theranos. Showtime’s Super Pumped, in which the adorably bedimpled actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Uber’s toxic bro founder Travis Kalanick, dropped on Feb. 27. While the specifics of all these tales may be different, the psychological profiles of the subjects at their center, specifically their voracious appetites for risk and their wanton disregard for others, will remain signatures of the fake-it-till-you-make-it era.”

“The vestments might have been casual but the visions were exalted: WeWork wasn’t renting desks; it was ‘elevating the world’s consciousness.’ Uber wasn’t a cab operator; it was ‘a ride-sharing service’ that gave people ‘flexibility’ and ‘freedom.’ Theranos was not a blood-testing company; it was going to give consumers control over their own health information so ‘no one has to say goodbye too soon.'”

The Silicon Valley Business Journal. “Special purpose acquisition companies don’t seem so special anymore. Last year, as they were touted as providing a better and easier way for startups to make it to Wall Street, the entities known as SPACs exploded. Record numbers were created and never-before-seen numbers of operating companies went public via mergers with them. Now though, SPACs clearly have lost a good deal of their appeal, thanks in no small part to poor market and operating performance.”

“The number of new blank-check companies has plunged. So, too, has the number of mergers involving them. Conversely, a growing number of the investment vehicles are canceling their initial public offerings or aborting planned mergers. Meanwhile, many pre-merger SPACs and nearly all public companies that hit the New York Stock Exchange or the Nasdaq via a SPAC merger have seen their share prices slump.”

“Michael Klausner, a professor at Stanford Law School, saw this coming. In 2020, just as SPACs were starting to get hot, he co-authored a pessimistic report about them. ‘The whole thing’s been a bubble,’ Klausner said.”

“So how did SPACs go from being red hot to absolutely not? Part of it has to do with what’s been going on in the stock markets and the broader economy. With the economy largely recovered from its Covid slump and inflation spiking, the Federal Reserve is curtailing its pandemic-related easy-money measures and raising interest rates. That’s led to volatility on Wall Street. Investors have shifted money away from fast-growing, money-losing businesses toward more stable sectors.”

“Of the 41 Bay Area companies that went public via SPAC mergers since 2020, none were trading above the price at which they went public as of March 14. Even worse, 25 had lost more than half their value.  Stanford professor Klausner believes the tide has turned on blank-check companies.  A research paper he’s now working on essentially sums up his view — if a bit hyperbolically — that the good times are never coming back. Its tentative title? ‘The Death Spiral of SPACs.'”

  1. ‘rates have been escalating every single day for basically the last 45 days,’ Scott Sheldon, branch manager at New American Funding in Californiar

    This outfit is the one I called REIC devils a few years ago for their cartoonish radio segments pushing cash out refi’s.

    1. I have this sick feeling in my stomach that I recently saw a FB post about a relative taking a position with them. He’s my first cousin’s son. I may have to get the conversation going with him at the family reunion this summer.

  2. I saw this:

    ‘Cannabis producer Hexo Corp has reported a large second-quarter loss after writing down almost $616-million in one-time impairment losses in order to enable ‘a clean slate for future growth.’ Hexo wrote down its property, plant and equipment value by $100-million, its intangible assets by $141-million and its goodwill by $375-million. According to the company, the writedowns arose from revised forecasts, market demand, production capacity and opportunities for efficiencies. Intangible assets include brand recognition, intellectual property and goodwill.’

    ‘When goodwill is written down after an acquisition, it is often a signal that the value of that asset has fallen below it purchase price. Hexo made several large acquisitions last year, including cannabis producers Redecan for $925-million, Zenabis Global Inc. for $235-million and 48North Cannabis Corp. for $50-million.’

    ‘Hexo’s net revenue was $52.8-million, up from $32.9-million in the same quarter last year. While it was a second consecutive quarterly high, revenue missed consensus estimates of $58.1-million, according to a report by Royal Bank of Canada analyst Douglas Miehm. Many cannabis companies have yet to become profitable in the face of vigorous competition between producers and a continuing battle with the illegal market.’

    https://www.theglobeandmail.com/business/article-hexo-reports-a-large-loss-after-writedowns/

    I can remember a time when some pot seller who lost 600 million pesos with 50M in revenue would be kinda big deal. Money goes poof like that all the time now.

    1. ‘Cannabis producer Hexo Corp has reported a large second-quarter loss after writing down almost $616-million in one-time impairment losses…”

      What were they smoking?

    2. Money goes poof like that all the time now.

      Yellen bux isn’t money. It’s fiat currency backed by nothing and created out of thin air.

    3. I can remember a time when some pot seller who lost 600 million pesos with 50M in revenue would be kinda big deal. Money goes poof like that all the time now.

      Think of all the legitimate good this money could have done. Instead, the FED turned everything into a casino.

      1. the legitimate good this money could have done

        Except that it wasn’t money. It was valuation. Intangible assets!

  3. “While the specifics of all these tales may be different, the psychological profiles of the subjects at their center, specifically their voracious appetites for risk and their wanton disregard for others, will remain signatures of the fake-it-till-you-make-it era.”

    I hope someone gives the Fed proper credit for their role of turning the U S. dollar into free gambling chips. There must be a tenet of central banking that keeping interest rates too low for too long leads to wide scale malinvestment.

    1. “The lowering of the rate of interest stimulates economic activity. Projects which would not have been thought “profitable” if the rate of interest had not been influenced by the manipulations of the banks, and which, therefore, would not have been undertaken, are nevertheless found “profitable” and can be initiated.” -Ludwig Von Mises in The Austrian Theory of the Trade Cycle and Other Essays, Page 28

      “The crisis and the ensuing period of depression are the culmination of the period of unjustified investment brought about by the extension of credit. The projects which owe their existence to the fact that they once appeared “profitable” in the artificial conditions created on the market by the extension of credit and the increase in prices which resulted from it, have ceased to be ‘profitable.'” -Ludwig Von Mises in The Austrian Theory of the Trade Cycle and Other Essays, Page 30

      1. Succinct truth. Yet, when houses of cards fall in on themselves, people will scream about the tragedy of loss, not the crime of cheap credit in the first place.

    1. I’ll go out on a limb here and say probably zero of these newly minted gas executives had experience in the gas biz. Remarkable, no?

    2. Everything about this phony war is a big lie.

      Any alleged U.S. citizen who supports this phony war needs to question where their true loyalty lies, to unelected globalist bureaucrats? Or to their own country?

      Internationalism, globalism, divided loyalties, a parasitic relationship with their host country (and its taxpayer money), we’ve seen it all before…

        1. I was thinking bout the media blitz we’re seeing. Just what does it matter what USAians think about it? We aren’t going to change anything. Unless the point is to distract us. I read the Globe and Mail every day online. You know what’s suddenly missing? CCP virus. All the talk of mandates, death shot shaming – gone.

          Wa happened to my bring out yer dead carts?

          1. Just what does it matter what USAians think about it? We aren’t going to change anything

            I think they’re scared of people eventually turning on them and their phony emergencies.

        2. Our world is full of lies, for instance:

          Shamu is not a whale it’s a dolphin.

          The White Stripes aren’t siblings they met at a bar and got married.

          Tomatoes are not vegetables they are fruits.

          Pluto isn’t a planet.

          Mortgages aren’t good for you, however, realtors are indeed liars.

          1. Tomatoes are not vegetables they are fruits.

            The leading expert in the world on all things culinary told me that a fruit is what you serve for desert. A vegetable is what goes on the plate as part of the main dish.

            I don’t think I’ve ever served tomatoes with ice cream.

    3. I heard on the radio that Zelensky just addressed Israel for aid, this time invoking memories of the Holocaust. I realize that people are dying, but exploiting world tragedies to country shop is borderline crass.

      IIRC, didn’t Putin offer terms that he would cease-fire if Ukraine promised to stay out of NATO?(?) Seems kinda reasonable, given that the West had promised that already. I wonder if someone is telling Z not compromise and to aim for the whole enchilada.

      1. IIRC Putin had also demanded that Ukraine “demilitarize.” Not totally sure what all that entailed, but given Russia’s track record when it comes to aggression against neighboring countries, that was a firm “Hell, no!” from Kyiv. He also wanted Ukraine to give up all claims to Crimea & the two eastern republics where ethnic Russians comprise a significant minority, and were being marginalized by the Ukraine government.

  4. The Financial Times
    War in Ukraine
    Wealthy Russian property owners leave Manhattan with a whisper
    Many are selling up for fear of being caught in US sanctions over Putin’s invasion of Ukraine
    © FT montage/Reuters/WireImage/Getty Images | From left, Roman Abramovich, whose New York property went to his ex-wife Dasha Zhukova, Alexey Kuzmichev and Dmitry Rybolovlev
    Joshua Chaffin in New York March 19 2022

    They landed with a boom, scooping up trophy properties in some of Manhattan’s priciest locations. Now the Russians appear to be leaving with a whisper.

    Several have inquired with brokers in recent days about selling multimillion-dollar Manhattan properties as they try to liquidate assets before they are caught in a web of US sanctions. Most are doing so through discreet “whisper” listings with trusted brokers, as opposed to public sales, in order to minimise publicity.

    But not all: the Upper East Side mansion owned by Alexey Kuzmichev, co-founder of Alfa-Bank, which was hit by US sanctions, was recently listed for $41mn, $1mn less than he paid for it in 2016.

    “All of them are only talking about selling,” said Dolly Lenz, one of New York’s foremost luxury property brokers. The big question, according to Lenz, is on what terms they will get out, and how big of a hit they will have to take in order to close deals quickly.

    “When buyers think you’re potentially distressed — and your whisper-listing is a sign of that distress — that’s a problem,” Lenz said, noting that she was already being “inundated” with inquiries from investors hoping to pick up Russian-owned properties on the cheap.

    1. You better believe all those Chinese embezzlers & money launderers who have parked their ill-gotten gains in pricy NYC & West Coast real estate are taking note: if the globalists designate your country a pariah state, asset freezes and expropriation will follow. RIP, rule of law and respect for property rights. I would be very surprised if we don’t see Chinese skybox and CRE investors liquidating their properties en masse and moving to shield their wealth from possible forfeiture.

      1. China state-affiliated media

        https:// twitter. com/ LiuXininBeijing/ status/1505043155682402306?cxt=HHwWhICpodWx_uIpAAAA:
        Can you help me fight your friend so that I can concentrate on fighting you later?

      2. RIP, rule of law and respect for property rights.

        Which affects everyone, not just foreign oligarchs. And I believe, this is what they really want. Good old slippery slope in action. No one will complain when foreign billionaires and millionaires from “cancelled” countries have their assets seized, they had it coming., right? Soon we will reach the “when they came for me, no one was left to speak.” point.

        1. That’s what the sheeple don’t seem to realize. If the globalists & their Quislings can designate an entire nation & nationality as having collective guilt for something, then justify seizing their assets and blocking them from the financial system, it doesn’t take a penetrating analysis to see what other “deplorables” are going to be in for the same treatment.

      3. “I would be very surprised if we don’t see Chinese skybox and CRE investors liquidating their properties en masse and moving to shield their wealth from possible forfeiture.”

        It would be prudent for them to get out now, before Xi takes a page out of Vladimir’s playbook and starts grabbing territory in his neighborhood. Once the grabbing begins, Chinese real estate investments in the U.S. will be at peril of confiscation. And it won’t help them one bit that China is going to preferentially stiff western creditors in its real estate bond defaults.

        1. The Constitution didn’t protect Japanese-Americans from having their property expropriated & being forced into internment camps, so the precedent is already set. Note the deafening silence from the ACLU and all other Democrat-aligned so-called civil liberties groups.

        2. Yup – this is the key – get out early.

          I suspect this is why this will not work – they sell as it becomes obvious and then bicker about the listing and selling prices. It is only liquid if you officially sell and get the heck out of dodge.

  5. ‘roughly 30% of the nation’s inventory, or about $1.1T worth at current valuations, facing complete obsolescence’

    Is that a lot? Let me tell you about a narrative in CRE. (Where the media comes in). After the CCP virus, ‘many people expected defaults. But it didn’t happen!’ Cuz the guberment/central banks flooded the world with phony money and ‘mandated’ no foreclosures. Problem is, these ‘assets’ still stink. Hotels, retail, luxury airbox canyons, etc, were hemorrhaging cash before CCP virus.

    1. ‘The vestments might have been casual but the visions were exalted: WeWork wasn’t renting desks; it was ‘elevating the world’s consciousness.’ Uber wasn’t a cab operator; it was ‘a ride-sharing service’ that gave people ‘flexibility’ and ‘freedom.’ Theranos was not a blood-testing company; it was going to give consumers control over their own health information so ‘no one has to say goodbye too soon’

      They were renting f***ing desks. So who did the exalting? REIC media. Never mind the early morning tequila shots.

      1. When COVID hit, WeWork sent their own employees home to telework. That’s all I needed to know.

      2. Icons of St. Greta & St. Floyd of Fentanyl in the workplace are all the exaltation you need, peasant. Now gimme some worship!

  6. For the Comrades of Proven Worth (D) in our NEA indoctrination mills, youth suicides are acceptable collateral damage for pushing globalist agendas.

      But, Martinez claims, the school began ‘telling her to go to these LGBT groups behind my back. She went from questioning her sexuality to her gender’

      The mom said Yaeli’s peers pushed the idea that she was depressed because she felt she was actually ‘a boy’ – which the school allegedly supported

    1. Sometimes God likes to remind these folks but they never learn. He’ll be virtue signaling from his hospital bed.

  11. Last night I met a fellow late 50’s-early 60’s who has worked as a home inspector in MA and NH for 25 years but lately he has no work. Why? Buyers are routinely waiving home inspections in order to get the house they want. Anecdotally, I can confirm that we sold our 1930 MA family home in November 2021 to a buyer who waived inspection. Also, a relative just bought a remote 11 acre property in NH, paid 40K over asking AND waived inspection.

    Incidentally, the former home inspector told me he had Covid in January, specifically “Omicron”. Me: “How do you know it was omicron?” He said: “I got tested”. Me: “Oh, they confirmed it to be omicron?” He said: “Well, no, but, ya know, I, I did the whole thing, umm, the two shots and then the booster.” “Ohhh”, I said, nodding knowingly. (A friend who was supposed to be at this particular event was not there because he also had Covid, after three shots, thus had to stay home.)

    Home Inspector seemed to be inadvertently admitting, “Well, YEAH, of course, I got Covid like all the other triply injected people I know!”

    1. “Last night I met a fellow late 50’s-early 60’s who has worked as a home inspector in MA and NH for 25 years but lately he has no work. Why?”

      Because he can’t actually do anything?

    2. And now everything is blamed on “long haul covid”. Didn’t sleep well last night? Sore after exercising? Have a little hair loss? It has to be long haul covid.

      1. “Post-pandemic stress disorder”

        Which is apparently so stressful it causes heart attacks and strokes in people in their 20s.

        Happy TWO YEAR anniversary of “two weeks to flatten the curve”

      2. And now everything is blamed on “long haul covid”.

        Not everything. My dog informed me the poop on the living room carpet was left there by Russians.

      3. Not to mention that no new odd or unusual symptoms could be the result of 3 injections of an experimental substance never used before en masse in humans. Nope, it must be longhaul covid, or it’s Covid, or it’s something else. No way your new irregular heart rhythm or chest pain, or your new onset POTS or your sudden tinnitus, vertigo or hearing loss could be the result of the miracle shots!

    1. Remember November 1999, the “Battle of Seattle” protests against the WTO meeting and globalism?

      And what The Resistance™ has become, especially from 2016 to now?

      The Resistance™ supports corporate fascism via big tech social media censorship. The Resistance™ supports Pfizer, Big Pharma, and opposes bodily autonomy. And now, The Resistance™ supports a phony war.

      What exactly are you “resisting” when your every opinion and action supports the Deep State and its associated unelected globalist bureaucracy?

      “They’re not sending their best”

      1. Exactly. They are now doing the bidding of the people they used to protest about. These cvcks are retarded.

      1. Russia should stop calling my grandfather a Nazi, says Canada’s foreign minister

        By Alan Freeman
        March 9, 2017

        https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2017/03/09/canadas-foreign-minister-says-russia-is-spreading-disinformation-about-her-grandfather/

        Chrystia Freeland’s granddad was indeed a Nazi collaborator – so much for Russian disinformation

        David Pugliese • Ottawa Citizen
        Mar 08, 2017 • 3 minute read

        The news conference on Monday by Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland was interesting not for the announcement that Canada was extending its training mission to Ukraine but for the questions and answers about the minister’s grandfather.

        Well it actually isn’t so outlandish. Michael Chomiak was a Nazi collaborator.

        What are the sources for the information that Freeland’s grandfather worked for the Nazis?

        For starters, The Ukraine Archival Records held by the Province of Alberta. It has a whole file on Chomiak, including his own details about his days editing the newspaper Krakivski Visti. Chomiak noted he edited the paper first in Crakow (Cracow), Poland and then in Vienna. The reason he edited the paper in Vienna was because he had to flee with his Nazis colleagues as the Russians advanced into Poland. (The Russians tended to execute collaborators well as SS members).

        See archive entry below:

        “The editorial boards carried out a policy of soliciting Ukrainian support for the German cause,” the Holocaust Museum noted. “It was typical, within these publications, to not to give any accounts of the German genocidal policy, and largely, the editions resorted to silencing the mass killing of Jews in Galicia. Ukrainian newspapers presented the Jewish Question in light of the official Nazi propaganda, corollary to the Jewish world conspiracy.”

        “In 1943 and 1944, both Lvivski Visti and Krakivski Visti hailed the German-approved formation of the 14th Waffen SS Division Halychyna, composed of Ukrainian volunteers,” the museum pointed out.

        So much for Russian disinformation.

        On Wednesday the Globe and Mail reported that, “Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland knew for more than two decades that her maternal Ukrainian grandfather was the chief editor of a Nazi newspaper.”

        Photo below shows Chomiak at a party – he is to the right of the man smoking. On the far right (right hand lower corner of the photo) in uniform is Emil Gassner, the Nazi administrator in charge of the press for the region including Cracow.

        1. Via Quora:

          Is there a connection between the Ukrainian tryzub and the tridents and bidents of the Khazar Khanate?

          Yes, Ukraine used to be ruled by the Khazarian empire, which converted en masse to phariseeic/kabbalistic judaism in the 9th century A.D. These khazar converts were the forebears to modern “ashkenazi” jews, who have no relation to biblical Hebrews, semitic peoples or the land of Israel. Khazars believe strongly in kabbalistic magic which involves Satan worship and channeling of power through “sigils”. The Ukrainian coat of arms is indeed such a symbol, which was originally the Khazarian tamga. The modern Russo-Ukrainian “conflict” is in fact an effort of the Khazarian ruling elite to recover their homeland before they usher in their Talmudic “world to come”.

  13. Gateway Pundit — Sovereign ‘Democracy’ Ukraine: Zelensky Suspends 11 Opposition Parties Becoming Head Of A One-Party State (3/20/2022):

    “Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, with the backing of Ukraine’s National Security and Defence Council, declared that all opposition parties would be suspended indefinitely until martial law is declared over.

    In a statement issued yesterday evening, President Zelensky announced the following decree: political parties who his party, “Servants of the People,” has identified as being pro-Russian would be suspended until the nation-wide martial law is lifted. The list essentially includes every opposition party.

    With millions of their constituents now stripped of any political infrastructure, it’s safe to say that this is not the sort of action taken by a ‘democracy.’

  14. Unequal Justice—Denver Covers Up Lee Keltner’s Assassination (3/16/2022):

    “Self-described “Progressive Prosecutor” Beth McCann, the district attorney of Denver, campaigned on a promise to “keep our city safe and provide equal justice for all,” “to rebuild trust” and “to keep open lines of communication.”

    The Mile High City’s homicide rate is at a record high; aggravated assaults are skyrocketing. COVID lockdowns decimated local businesses, but roving “homeless” agitators took over downtown Denver and turned it into a riot-friendly, drug-addled, violence-wracked empire. McCann vindictively prosecuted besieged motorist Jennifer Watson, who was attacked by George Floyd rioters blocking downtown streets, instead of prosecuting the thugs; a jury acquitted her on McCann’s most overblown charges.

    Last week, just as the high-profile case involving the assassination of Colorado patriot and cowboy hat-maker Lee Keltner was headed to trial after a 17-month delay, Progressive Prosecutor Beth McCann dropped murder charges against Matthew Dolloff, the Occupy Wall Street /Antifa/ Black Lives Matter sympathizer who fraudulently and illegally posed as a “security guard” for liberal local news station KUSA-TV (“9News”) before shooting Keltner in the face at point-blank range with a gun that the news station denies knowing he was carrying.

    After initially charging Dolloff with second-degree murder, Progressive Prosecutor McCann has now magically determined that “we are not able to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.”

    “They’re not sending their best”

    1. Another official without security. How long before a surviving spouse or brother shows their displeasure with the DA in a very severe manner?

      Keep pushing and the day will come when you’ve pushed the wrong person.

  15. Bloomberg posted a March 13 opinion piece from Teresa Ghilarducci. Excerpts:

    —————-
    … Inflation Stings Most If You Earn Less Than $300K. Here’s How to Deal,”
    …Public transportation prices are only up 8% compared to 38% for gasoline.
    …Though your palate may not be used to it, tasty meat substitutes include vegetables (where prices are up a little over 4%, or lentils and beans, which are up about 9%).
    …Plan to cut out the middle creature and consume plants directly. It’s a more efficient, healthier and cheaper way to get calories,”
    ——————–

    The op-ed was trashed on social media, and no wonder. I like how she says “middle creature,” because I guess “middleman” wasn’t inclusive enough. FYI, Teresa Ghilarducci is the same woman who testified before Congress that they should start playing with Americans’ 401Ks.

      1. Just got back from Safeway. The Dietz & Watson brand wieners and knockwurst used to be $6.99 for a 1 lb package. Today they were $9.99.

        1. Dietz & Watson

          Their beef franks and kielbasa are awesome. And yes, they went up in price here too.

          1. I know that Safeway can be pricey, but dang, that was a huge price increase. When on sale they would be under $4 a pound.

      2. And another fun fact: The “soy” “lent” in Soylent Green is soybeans and lentils. I hope we don’t have to eat Theresa Ghilarducci.

    1. These are great ideas. I’ll just grow a second stomach so I can become a ruminant and eat grass.

  16. Globalist stooge and turncoat RINO Liz Cheney wants “enhanced” criminal penalties for J6 “insurrectionists” – how long before the DNC’s FBI Chekists get the green light for “enhanced interrogation techniques” on any Deplorables who run afoul of the globalist elites? When will “Black Sites” come to America?

    Liz Cheney reveals Capitol riot committee is looking at whether ‘enhanced criminal penalties’ are warranted over Trump’s ‘dereliction of duty’ and promises ‘new information’ is coming about January 6
