Valid concern. I hope to retire before the end of Trump's term, barring a market collapse that could keep me working past age 55. The flip side is that every Reverse Minsky Journey created new buying opportunities.

If you look at the current value of all the thousands of rental apartments Fred Trump owned free and clear, it's probably double what Donald's current net worth is.

"Radiation poisoning from polonium-210 looks like the end stage of cancer... liver and kidney damage ensue, along with extreme nausea and severe headaches. Victims experience vomiting, diarrhea and hair loss. The alpha particles emitted from the decaying substance get absorbed in the body. Death may come in a matter of days, sometimes weeks..."

- Trump = lazy whyte trash with inherited money, the WSJ just ran an article where it's estimated that the business debt he's responsible for through his shell companies is over $1.5B... 5x what he previously disclosed.
And it's all personally guaranteed too, with his track record he couldn't fucking borrow a dime unless the loan was structured so there was no corporate shield.

- Moody's Corp has agreed to pay nearly $864 million to settle with U.S. federal and state authorities over its ratings of risky mortgage securities in the run-up to the 2008 financial crisis, the U.S. Department of Justice said on Friday.
The credit rating agency reached the deal with the Justice Department, 21 states and the District of Columbia, resolving allegations that the firm contributed to the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, the department said in a statement.
"Moody's failed to adhere to its own credit-rating standards and fell short on its pledge of transparency in the run-up to the Great Recession," Principal Deputy Associate Attorney General Bill Baer said in the statement.
S&P Global's Standard & Poor's entered into a similar accord in 2015 paying out $1.375 billion. Standard and Poor's is the world's largest ratings firm, followed by Moody's.
Moody's said it would pay a $437.5 million penalty to the Justice Department, and the remaining $426.3 million would be split among the states and Washington, D.C.
As part of its settlement, Moody's also agreed to measures designed to ensure the integrity of credit ratings going forward, including keeping analytic employees out of commercial-related discussions.

Trump has already asked for the resignations of everyone involved in the efforts to hold the financial predators responsible.

This is the REAL reason that weakwhytes are so butthurt over immigration.

- . posted:California may be the new capital of American liberalism, but everybody who likes the sound of that ought to consider the fate of three recent San Francisco ballot initiatives.
The first, Proposition Q, aimed to eliminate homeless people's unsightly tent camps by banning sidewalk tents and empowering the police to confiscate them with 24 hours notice so long as occupants were offered beds in shelters. San Francisco has only 1,203 emergency adult shelter beds, for a homeless population of 6,700, but a second initiative, Proposition J, promised to ease that shortfall by earmarking $50 million a year from a small sales-tax increase, proposed in a third initiative, Proposition K.
In an exquisite illustration of California's core political neurosis - the tension between our attachment to the pretty view and our desire to care for the least among us without personal inconvenience, even as our population and economy explode - we San Franciscans voted yes on Q and J, and no on K. The people spoke, in other words, and we said, "Get rid of those filthy tents and set aside heaps of money to make sure it's done in a compassionate way so I don't have to feel guilty, but don't squeeze me for a dime."
Fuck that shit, the voters chose wisely... NONE of the people in those tents are actually from San Francisco. They're all transient bums who came here for the handouts or shit for brains drug addicts who came here looking for a summer of love that ended 40 years ago.
If you build 6,000 more housing units, you'll just attract 12,000 more bums looking for a handout.
If you can't support yourself, go back to Flyoverville.

Sure, you can choose not to play the game but take a look at the people who go that route... they're almost all crazy bitter shit-losers.

WASHINGTON: A bill backing key changes in the H1-B program that allows skilled workers from countries like India to fill high-tech jobs in the US has been re-introduced in the US Congress by two lawmakers who claim that it will help crack down on the work visa abuse.
The 'Protect and Grow American Jobs Act' which makes important changes to the eligibility requirements for H1-B Visa exemptions was re-introduced by Republican Darrell Issa and Scott Peters both from California.
The bill among other things increases the minimum salary of H-1B visa to USD 100,000 per annum and eliminates the Masters Degree exemption.
The legislation, they argued, will help crack down on abuse and ensure that these jobs remain available for the best and brightest talent from around the world.
On the surface this looks like a really good idea, $100K is a low threshold for Silicon Valley but it would certainly eliminate the worst abuse...
Unfortunately there is a "but".... scumbag former chop shop operator Darrell Issa is involved so there's got to be some dirty fine print catch imbedded in the legislation somewhere.

By the age of 34, Ding Wen had built up a personal fortune of more than two million yuan after years of hard work at an internet company in Nanjing, in east China's Jiangsu province.
But he saw most of that wealth go up in smoke on January 5, when China's bitcoin market crashed, sending the price of the virtual currency plunging 40 per cent in just a few hours after lunch.
With the market in free fall, Ding was unable to log into his account with China's biggest bitcoin trading platform, Huobi, meaning he could not sell off his holdings or top up his principal to meet the margin call.
By the time he managed to log on in the evening, most of the bitcoins in his account had been compulsorily sold off by Huobi for 6,361 yuan each, lower than his purchase price of 8,101 yuan. This included the part of his investment he had bought using a loan he obtained from Huobi by pledging the bitcoins he owned originally.
"I have taken on big risks when making leveraged betting, but the collapse of the trading system made me unable to run stop-loss orders, so I think the platform should compensate for investors' losses," Ding said.
Ahead of the market crash, Ding had borrowed 995 million yuan from Huobi by pledging a principal consisting of the 409 bitcoins he already owned. He then bought a further 1,228 bitcoins with the loan.
Most of his holdings were compulsorily sold out by Huobi during the price collapse while he was unable to access his account.
Wu Xing, head of marketing at Huobi, said the log-in delay was caused by a torrent of visits and selling orders, which exceeded the capacity of the website.
"[The loss] was due to irresistible factors and not included in the compensation scope. We are sorry and understand the feelings of the investors," she said.
Many analysts and investors fear China's bitcoin market is quickly turning into another time bomb like the scandal-hit peer-to-peer (P2P) lending sector. A series of P2P lending platform frauds rocked the country last year and washed away tens of billions of yuan of investment from small investors, creating a headache for local and central governments, which feared social unrest.
Now speculation, derivative products, leveraged betting and program trading appear to be spreading in the largely unregulated bitcoin market. Such practices are thought to be responsible for pushing up the price of bitcoin by more than 260 per cent since early 2016.
The market hit a historic high of 8,995 yuan on January 5, just ahead of the crash.
Most of the transactions are happening on three privately owned platforms or through P2P trading.
Data provider Bitcoinity shows trading volume in China accounted for more than 98 per cent of the global total during the past 30 days amid more pronounced price fluctuations.
Until now, no regulator has overseen this market, which sees daily turnover worth tens of billions of yuan.
However, things appear to be changing fast.
After the great bitcoin crash, the People's Bank of China announced on Wednesday afternoon that it had sent inspection teams to the country's top three bitcoin trading platforms to scrutinise their practices.
It is the first regulatory move China's central bank has made publicly involving the virtual currency.
The PBOC has been in talks with the platforms from time to time in private since 2013 and asked them for data and information, according to an executive from a major trading platform, who asked not to be named. But the authorities have not formally listed bitcoin under their regulatory framework. Nor have they issued any rules to govern the market.
Like all other central banks, the PBOC defines bitcoin as a commodity rather than a currency, which ruled it out of their existing regulatory coverage in late 2013.
Aurélien Menant, founder and chief executive of Gatecoin, a cryptocurrency and blockchain assets trading platform based in Hong Kong, said: "Given the dominant role of Chinese exchanges, which represent 95 per cent of global bitcoin trading activity, at more than 50 billion yuan every day, it's likely that the PBOC recognises the growing significance of this new and so far unregulated alternative financial market.
"The PBOC has been engaging with the major cryptocurrency exchanges in China for several years, but given the sudden price movements and high volumes traded over the past few weeks, it's very clear that now it just wanted to step up their checks on market manipulation and money laundering."
In an announcement issued on Wednesday, the central bank said it was joining forces with the Beijing Financial Bureau to probe trading platforms including Huobi and OKCoin to check if they were running in accordance with foreign-exchange management, anti-money-laundering and trading exchange rules.
Mainland media reported in recent months that bitcoins had become a popular tool for investors to export money out of China, circumventing capital controls that had been tightened by the regulators amid the yuan's sharp depreciation.
Cheung Chun-yin, a PwC China fintech partner, said it was possible for bitcoin holders in China to circumvent domestic capital control limits by selling bitcoin to an overseas buyer in exchange for foreign currency.
"In theory, the bitcoin market is borderless, and as long as you could find a buyer overseas, you would be able to get US dollars, and the trade could happen without leaving a trace, with no record in the traditional banking system," he said, adding that the volume of capital flow through this channel was likely to be quite limited as there are few non-yuan buyers.
