    Race riots 2020

    It looks like this was a back and forth escalation between him and the anarchists each upping the ante. One video is cut off short but it's supposed to show him purposely pushing someone off the statue though it seems to be edited short so context could be missing. The escalation boiled over...

    Race riots 2020

    The joke of all of this is in order to accomplish what BLM wants requires massive funding to the police not defunding the police. Essentially you need to do one of the following; Officers to have a somewhat high level of a martial arts background or significant size and strength like bouncers...

    Race riots 2020

    Irony is that guy would have been alive if they weren't so delicate with the guy. They actually did a good job initially getting him down which is the tough part and the larger cop had full side control on this dude. Then the one cop hesitated way too long on using the taser and the other cop...

    Real estate decline 2020

    Real estate lags way behind other economic indicators. You could say last time it was 3 years behind the Feb 2009 bottom of the stock crash being Feb 2012. The case today is that there have been very few homes sold since Feb this year because of COVID19 so there is a shortage of housing...

    Race riots 2020

    I'm trying to dissect this fight by putting on my Joe Rogan UFC commentary hat. This is a weird fight. 0:24 White kid in red is getting surrounded and gets sucker punched by white kid wearing black shit with yellow lettering. He mocks the kid doing a karate stance and then hits him again. 0:36...

    I think going forward all stores need to operate much different going forward in high risk areas. Armed security and shatter resistant glass is going to be required. Cost of doing business in 2020 onward. Anything security related is going to be a booming business.

    Race riots 2020

    Man(dope) killed trying to detonate bomb at ATM. I'm stating to think a good strategy would be to strategically place fake ATMs around the city like baiting for hunting. Then stake them out. Either they kill themselves trying to get in them or you can use it for a sting...

    Real estate decline 2020

    He's raising it after 4 years. So this would be second rent increase which is not unreasonable at all during normal times though a bit odd timing now. I wouldn't want to be involved in a sublease as I can't see a worth while upside especially I have to give him an answer by Friday and I he...

    Real estate decline 2020

    Interesting, I just got the opposite response from my landlord. I am currently on a month to month lease as my last yearly lease has been expired for a while now. My landlord just sent me an email stating my rent was going up 10% because my unit is under the market value(which it is). He told me...

    Race riots 2020

    The problem is when people push anarchy too far the balancing act has to be martial law. People do not fear police or laws right now and that is a very dangerous situation thats rapidly spiraling out of control. This is no different than a class room. This remind me of when I was in catholic...

    Race riots 2020

    While I think you are bringing up some things that are true I don't agree this is a poverty issue as La Águila Negra pointed out its not occurring exclusively in poor areas. My bigger concern is that I know employed whites who are your typical liberal pumpkin spice latte types who are not...

    Race riots 2020

    Yes I think I knew in back of my mind the outcome for the U.S. long term was bad on a long enough horizon but this is actually far worst than I could dream of at least this fast. I didn't realize how out of touch I am with Gen Z and it wasn't until I saw a flood of privilege white kids on social...

    Race riots 2020

    After taking in all of this for a few days now I would say this is unprecedented because this is actually far worse than a standard race riot. This is a weird mixture of an anarchist riot with racial roots. This would be much better if it was a race riot where whites were exclusively being...

    The 2020 Stock Market Crash Thread

    Well a decade ago he said by 2015 at the latest you could buy a medium size house with 500 ounces of silver....or even 'trade' for it which is even more ridiculous of a statement. Is it possible that in your lifetime your local fiat will become so devalued that owning precious metals will...

    Official U.S. Death Toll Predictions By Jan. 1, 2021

    Wouldn't you be more suprised that anyone voted for 50,000 or less when the U.S. total yesterday was 45,000? How does that work....5,000 more deaths in the next 8 months? We will hit 50,000 before this weekend. The earlier estimated prediction from the White House was 100,000-200,000. 60,000...

    Official U.S. Death Toll Predictions By Jan. 1, 2021

    Unless the current numbers are not accurate and they make some major readjustment we will hit 75,000 deaths by memorial day. Just look at the daily deaths and make some basic assumptions. We've averaged around 2,100 deaths per day for the past 15 days. Lets assume this drops to 1,500 deaths for...
