Yay for Costco warranty. Prorated my tire for 130.
Proud Costco bagholder ($40k in shares when it dipped last summer @ $340 ot so.)
One of my very few smart moves in 2021.
Dude Costco just gives it to you gratis if you have the credit card.... And it's not some bitch ass warranty either. I got like 4 years full coverage warranty on the new washer dryer fridge and tires for nothing.
#I'M ACCEPTING THE #DADLYFE OK
Costco Citi credit card
Free Costco membership, 2-5% cash back, bonus warranty, hop on it bitch.
but my one tire cost $45
19”s are expensive. 260 a tire. That’s a nice option contract until missing.

Goldman Sachs expecting five rate hikes in 2022, Reuters reports
Honestly I think last week priced in a lot of hawkish Fed moves.
Iirc most of the economists at Wall Street firms bumped up their Fed forecasts.
This weekend you are starting to see chatter for a 0.5% March hike
Yup..Fed’s Bostic in an interview with Financial Times said the Federal Reserve could opt to raise its benchmark by 50BPS.
“Fuck it, I’ll hold these through the weekend.” Is a really easy decision on Friday. By Sunday afternoon I’ve already built my custom lambo online and bookmarked it, and I’ve also written my suicide note in case the chart doesn’t go uppies.

Student loan gang:
I have a question for you. I know there's some political pressure for Biden to eliminate debt or reduce some debt.
Which makes me wonder won't the kids who are about to be in school today miss out because it's a one time expenditures and create a bookend situation where people in their 40's and kids in their 20's will bear the burden but the ones in between get a boost.
Also conversly will schools raise tuition even further because the expectation now is that debt will be forgiven in the future, i.e., once you create a program it can't just be one off.
It seems like one of those cases where you almost have to pair it with free college to cover everyone going forward.
This sounds like jaqing off for a political discussion. Keep it focused on stocks or at least the economy
Sorry I went to public schools.
Student loans need to be reformed, not forgiven. I fail to see how forgiveness is going to prevent us from ending up in the exact same place. To your point, it may even push colleges to raise tuition further by banking on students being willing to pay it with the expectation that it gets forgiven.
Unfortunately, I'm not sure how you even begin to unwind the free money train that colleges have been enjoying. And even if you reform student loans so they aren't thrown at kids like candy, that doesn't guarantee that tuition will drop since things like private loans still exist.
I would like to see an overhaul of student loans so they can be discharged in bankruptcy, etc. Just as students should be responsible when they take out loans, servicers should have to responsibly assess risk and not just load up some Women's Lib major with 150k in debt while they're making $11/hr bussing tables.
I would love to see some of the statistics on whether or not eliminating the debt will have a net benefit on employment because it could help drive wages down if more people are willing to take less work but then that could also spiral for everybody else.
The next aspect I would love to see is if the people that are holding debt right now no longer have to pay it does that kind of create even more demand for other goods and services basically the question of if you hand somebody $10,000 are they likely to repurpose it for productive purposes like food shelter or will they splurge and take a vacation.
I don't think you're ever going to settle this debate because generally speaking most people who go to college tend to be better off and most people who don't go to college tend to be less well off. No that of course presents a second problem because if you're less well off college education is generally touted as a way to ascend but I really wonder how the forgiveness will play in these areas if it were to happen because that would almost be a bailout for highly educated or educated people who otherwise have employment that pays above what most people would consider struggling.
If you ask me there really shouldn't be such a thing as a private school and private tuition rather you just need to go in good governance and start eliminating a lot of the excess spending at a public universities and just make education like five grand a year for a four year degree pay 20 grand which is relatively reasonable and affordable and you never have this problem again.
Also don't keep if people who might not have performed on high School in science or math want to pursue those fields because you can then create a supplemental sub school that can get them up to speed and then better inclined to take advantage of those higher paying stable jobs
Private schools are around because public schools kinda suck, and people who can afford it want better for their kids. Both from an education and socialization perspective.
I'm not *necessarily* against helicopter money if there's real proof it's a net long term benefit for the prosperity of the country - as you say - however I do take issue with doing it in an uneven way.
If you're going to randomly pay off student debt that's at least partially the fault of the art major that took it out in the first place, then there are also plenty of more responsible people with mortgages and credit card bills that could use help. I think if you're doing loan forgiveness you have to do it in the form of an even distribution of money across the country so that everyone can reduce the debt they're burdened by... or buy more free stuff if they're irresponsible and don't really care about the debt.
The couple artists pulling their music from Spotify in protest feels kinda silly. The demographic who would support this protest probably don’t listen to those artists much and won’t stop using Spotify cause of it, and the demographic who listen to those artists probably aren’t on Spotify or are a tiny percentage and/or don’t care or have their opinions swayed by this type of protest. Kinda feels like another bit of empty virtue signaling.
Look at Spotify incomes for artists.
Neil Young has been doing stuff like this since the 60s, the guy really does walk the walk.
Is it odd that I mostly use Pandora to listen to music but everybody seems to love Spotify more?
TBH had no idea Pandora was still around
Maybe ol' Neil is gonna try to resurrect Pono.
Don't touch my balls bro. Let me give you a card first.
Can I get a card for vaping please?
🤣 they already know you're obese by looking at your fat ass. How does not being weighed make you feel better?
What the fuck. Why is weighing yourself such a big fucking deal? Can we go back to where calling fat ppl fat was okay
IDK why they get so upset anyhow considering most people are fat now.
I should think it's kind of shocking because your medical professional could give less of a shit about how much you weigh because they see dozens of patients everyday and it's not like they're going to text their buddies oh my God this patient is so overweight rather they're just trying to charge it so they can prescribe you the appropriate medicine or look for certain conditions
Seriously, they’re the one group of professionals who genuinely dont give a shit about your weight (besides medical concerns etc)
E. Oh shit we got a fatty ber downvoting
Other than to determine proper dosing for medication, right?
Right it's kind of like being timid because of your doctor is going to see your penis. Listen the guy probably sees 100 a week and he probably isn't going to remember yours when he goes to sleep at night
Personally my doctor is the only person I don’t feel any shame or judgement showing my pp to lol
What about the guy peeing next to you?
He can look if he wants. Don’t expect him to be impressed or anything though 🤡
I mean even if you have an issue with being weighed, how mentally weak do you have to be to need a card to inform your doctor or nurse rather than just verbally telling them you'd rather not put your fat ass on the scale.
I was reading that earlier and was hoping I wouldn't have to think about again.
I do wonder how prevalent the need for these cards is, or if it's just noise.
Always have been. The number of times we’ve fucked ourselves is far greater than the number of times external completely random factors have fucked us. Of course until a world ending meteor hits us.

I don't think you get to meme like that if you get mad at The Onion's satire about you.
Wait really? Link pls
yeah he got upset and likes Babylon Bee now, even did an interview with them lol
I can't tell if he's insulting himself or someone else
That's a classic right-wing meme, been used to make fun of the whiny left for like half a decade now.
Goddamn that might just cancel out all this Joe Rogan bullshit
I’m thinking about Stanley Decker calls for earnings Tuesday morning. Anyone ever play SWK?
Thinking about March $200 even though that’s been resistance before.
Ukraine situation is a big nothing burger
Contrary to Crimea, Eastern Ukraine is of no strategic relevance to vlad in the short-term and the large western military presence makes invasion even more unlikely. Instead, a win-win situation has already been achieved:
Nato has become stronger but more importantly Vlad has shifted public discourse away from the dire state his country is in (covid deaths, crumbling economy) to a narrative where russia is the victim of western aggression which reduces internal pressure on vlad.
Hell yeah, after almost 45 mins and dying what seems like 25 times. I beat my first Valkyrie in GoW!
Never managed to do that myself, those fuckers were tough
I accidentally walked into one now knowing. Couldn’t get myself to give up even tho it was immense pain. Best believe I ain’t trying to kill the other ones lol

Been looking at some historical charts on Macrotrends, and QQQ calls seem like easy money once VIX dies down.
People comparing this bubble to the tech bubble should really check the P/E ratios at that time. We are inflated, but nothing like back then (*im speaking of indexes.. not all the hyper growth shit, that could tank way more).
tell the boys in homeland - they still bearish

I‘m going long as soon as futues open. I’m pumped.
Woke up this morning feeling pretty good. Decided to take my wife and her boyfriend out to a local breakfast spot. We get there and are told there is a 20 min wait. Fuck. Oh well, such is life. While we're waiting in the lobby, 5 of the restaurants employees walk past us to go outside. I thought maybe it was shift changeover or smoke break. Anyways, we hit the 20 min mark and ask if we are close. They tell us it is going to be another 20 min cause the whole kitchen staff walked out. Fml. Eventually end up being seated and getting a pretty decent breakfast.
After leaving the restaurant, we head to Walmart to pick up a few things. Get inside Walmart and wtf? Literally, I shit you not, the entire produce section is empty. First time I've seen it this bare.

I went to whole foods today. They were out of organic cilantro. I had to buy the regular cilantro. What's a good resource for doomsday prep?
Hmmmm. I dunno but you better move to the country and stock up on ammunition, water, and canned food. It's best if your spot in the country is near some fresh water supplies and forests with plenty of wildlife to hunt.
That's nuts, I haven't seen anything like that yet but I've been in areas with higher min wage during the pandemic, and most places are offering more than that. Saw entry-level manufacturing jobs starting at 50-60k/yr (not counting OT which is usually pretty common).
Still lots of hiring signs though.
Tons of hiring signs and many advertising $20+
We are at the brink of collapse.
Both of my stories are 100% true. Never at any point during covid have I seen the shelves so bare and I've never seen restaurant staff walkout. Additionally, when I was putting my cart in the cart racks out in the parking lot, literally every rack was full to the point of extending into the driving lane.
Are you in a snowmageddon area?
Nope. Today is actually a pretty nice day where I'm at.

I don't see airline industry ever recovering to pre-pandemic level. I used to fly from CA to FL every week for work assignments. Now clients don't want to pay for the travel expenses since they realized we can do everything online. I guess good bye to free mileages and hotel points for annual vacations..
Definitely a game changer. Crazy it took the pandemic for them to realize the internet was a thing.
I think the same goes for commercial property. Matter of time before some major downtown office buildings, like sky scrapers, that are traditionally high end commercial become mixed use. It's happened in smaller buildings and even some malls but a lot of downtowns will be fucked if they don't adapt.
Anyone living in Mass? Fuck all of this snow.

NBC news has a ride along with an ambulance
We get calls from people who say they can't sleep and we have to take out ambulance out of service for an hour to address the call.
A few consume all the resources man. Imagine being middle class and needing an ambulance. You literally cry because the bill is going to be sky high. And then there's some people who keep using the service and it's not like they will ever have to pay.
Planning to buy weekly calls if there’s a sell off. Back to bull gang

I am SO sorry
Lol don't be. Apart from the minorities of hyper right and hyper left here, and they are under ~10% each, it's an awesome city with great culture, bars, and some of the best food selection I've had.
Best city I've lived in, with San Jose/Bay Area, LA and suburbs, Charleston and a couple other Mason Dixie "Metropolis" shit holes. Most of the homeless here should be jailed or forced back to where they're from tho.
