Challenger Job Cut report, International Tradewreck, and Weakly U.I. filings top the start of “Bounce Day.”
Before we get started – and with a hat-tip to Robin Handler of the Options Signal Service for calling the “big changes Jan. 5” right – let’s roll out the fresh data du jour for you:
Challenger Job Cuts
These have been running low. Reason is that with not as many people working, there aren’t as many people around to fire:
With a blow-out upside ADP report Wednesday, we’re thinking the Friday CES (current employment situation) report will be good. But the unknow becomes “How has Covid restructured Life? What professions will grow? (Home office makeovers?) and which ones will be challenged?” If people are home more, will there be as many daycare users, for example. Or, with theaters on abbreviated schedules, will Top Gun Maverick EVER be released? (I will skip our usual admonition “Never Let Bean Counters Make Real Decisions!” Leave the grown-up thinking to Marketing!”
We are. however, proud to be the first news/commentary website to proclaim:
“Covid-19 Has been Great for Climate!”
Even made commuting better, or at least different most places.
The advance number on this suggested as nearly $100-billion monthly hole would be dug due to America overspending. OK, $97.8 billion. But the thing is, what pencils out to (nearly) $1.2 trillion per year. More, depending on interest rates.
The scary part? Four percent of America’s “prosperity” is not real (basis a $30 trillion GDP claim, which is a dollarized measure; so that’s crooked, too… But I digress.
We have the latest number (revised from advance) to ponder:
Not sure how you lose $17 billion in two weeks. We obviously don’t understand government. (Outgo averaging, or some slick stats to put forensic accounts off the scent?)
This crap all piles on top previous shovel tailings. Whether we can ever dig our way out of the hole is doubtful. Which we’re pretty sure in the Globalist/One-worlder plan.
Spoiler: Take our money, rent us our own lives. A common scam throughout history, if you read it.
Nodding to Rod Stewart (“Every picture tells a story, don’t it?“) let’s pivot into action at the Axed Club:
Try to ignore my cynical highlights. Just because new filers were up 57 thousand plus and the rate ticked up 2-10ths…nothing to see here, move along, Citizen.
Of course, the number would be stratospherically higher, ‘cept for running out of bennies. But that’s how things roll in the Grand Illusion Theater.
Which is presently showing reruns of January 6th “Crook’s Close Call.” (They were on both sides, only one side, however, controls the House of Hooligans, which is why no ATFA or other digital uprising groups have been nailed. Wouldn’t fit the narrative.
Driving events, a year-on, as Trump cancels Jan. 6 event amid GOP complaints – POLITICO. The GOP should be more worried about impeaching “Pops” but far be it from me to explain excellence and integrity to anyone in the District of Crookery.
Listen to the Geez, please. Some core “way of being” stuff people can use today, especially given the lunacy and hypenstance of the Jan. 6 media sewage pumping station.
“A Zen master and his student came to a river. There, a beautiful woman was trying to cross, but he was slight and the river deep. So the Zen master, put here on his shoulder and carried her across.
A way further along their travels, the student asked of his master: “Sir, how could you carry such a beautiful woman, given our Order’s strict rules against sexual conduct?”
“It is simple (Grasshopper): I stopped carrying her 4-miles back.”
One of Ure’s (impossible to patent) secrets to living a happy life is being very careful about what you “pick up.” People will have you picking up their “crazy shit” all day long, if’n you let ’em.
Just because the people you know pick up thoroughly useless shit, doesn’t mean you have to.
Find new friends. Smart ones.
Well, sort of, anyway. Here’s one possible Elliott view 75-minutes to the open:
Where things get interesting is to the right of B – that ascending trend line. Yep, that’ll be interesting as hell.
Fooled Once? Twice?
(Three times a Lady?) With FedGov policy blowing up on disease control, we find yet-another BigGov wordsmithing spin before us: Up-to-Date Shots Encouraged Over ‘Fully Vaccinated’: Fauci (1) (bloomberglaw.com).
We warned you (when my afternoon Martini qualified as a “vaccine” under the redefinition to hoax people along) that we’d never put anything in our bodies which was lawsuit-proof.
On the web, stories are picking up about rising mortality in key demographics being reported by insurance companies… Of course, stories like Life insurance death claims shoot 41%, up 3.5x in 2021 (fortuneindia.com) will not likely appear anytime soon on MainStreamMedia. After all, these pricks over-pimped jabs in the first place, rolling with groupthink in lieu of science. But we’ve been there.
The End of the Plandemic will not be televised. These are opening scene outtakes. This is just “truth leaks” which will soon be patched for the “up to date vaxxers…”
We just notice the midnight oil in the PR offices behind stories lik J&J vaccine recipients are ‘questioning our protection’ against COVID – and stuck waiting for a third shot and Fact check: Reports of adverse events due to COVID-19 vaccines are unverified. Some of reminds me of a James Taylor song. (I’m a steamroller Baby!):
“I’m gonna inject your soul
With some sweet rock ‘n’ roll…”
While the hype about Jan. 6 attempts to pivot aware people away, we’re planning the Two Years of Lies party later this month. As Janis Joplin advised, though: “Shoot if it makes you feel good…” (Strangely she was backed by Big Brother and the Holding Company. Even more prescient? Song title was “Piece of My Heart” which is near-enough myocarditis for home use. But enough rabbit hole diggings for now.
Still, a research pointer: See what happens when Global Mass Consciousness isn’t specific enough? Is Covid an archetype bad trip riff/actualization off a 40-year musical implant?
[other] News Buggers
My “news nose that knows news” insisted I pick these for you, so to speak:
Weren’t we just talking die-off? The great population growth slowdown – Vox. Of course, not for the “fully duped” however.
Should Ukraine be worried? With Russian troops massed on their border, I don’t see why not. Especially when Kazakhstan protests: Dozens killed, police say | CTV News is going on not far off. With Russian “security forces.” Thing is, how much of the protests were organized and funded by neocon arms?
Remember my “Plant a Garden!” 2022 food warnings? Here’s another building data point for you: World food prices hit 10-year high in 2021 – CNA.
Speaking of food…
ATR: Prepper Pancakes
A foodie distraction is in order here.
Back in 1968, I was in Alaska, working for a defense contractor with equivalent rank of major at age 19 (which sounds absurd, but that’s the fact). One weekend, I visited my late aunt Isabelle. First woman CPA in Alaska, or some such.
She made sourdough pancakes. Change your life good.
Ever since, I have been a quest to find the perfect starter. But now I’ve gone down the overnight fermentation path as a next logical branch. Doing so, some interesting thoughts along the way:
- Virtually ALL the popular recipes for sourdough pancakes include the use of baking powder.
- I have never heard of a single study looking for healthcare issues common to people who ate lots of baking powder assisted baked goods in their lives. Good background: Are All Brands of Baking Powder Aluminum-free? | The Grocery Store Guy
- Baking Powder was invented in 1856.
- My late (great) Uncle Bill was a teamster who drove a “20-mule team” up to the Yukon two centuries back. Doubt the Seattle-Yukon wagon trains carried enough baking powder, though. Went up through the Frazier River canyon, up last 100-Mile House and beyond…
Point? (Where’s I put that damn thing? Ah…here…) If you have any really good baking powder (and soda) free sourdough pancake recipes, send ’em along.
Thing is, around here nearly all of us prep. Sure, got some yeast in the solar backed-up freezer. But did sourdoughs up in the Yukon really have 3 eggs, a cup of whole milk, a tablespoon of coconut sugar, baking powder and baking soda?
Given we are as a Nation (of Fools) (on average) spending more time around the home the past couple of years, I remain mystified why simple (sourdough) baking hasn’t taken off. Especially given there’s not going to be coconut sugar much past the onset of global collapse, know what I’m saying?
Trolling for simplest and best here, and overnight fermentation approaches, in particular, are welcome.
No Writer Job
Just to see if I might still have an employable skill, I submitted a resume for a writing gig this week. I write a lot, seem to enjoy it, though I have no particular knack for it…
Won’t say where, but I knew things would not end well for two reasons early on.
First: After sending a link to my Amazon books page, a resume, and mentioning I still write five-times a week here, the hiring screener wanted writing samples. Five columns a week for 22-years now, that’s, uh…carpal tunnel! 5.7-million words worth.
Second thing I did wrong: The hiring screeners email signature line included this:
Perhaps, I got off on the wrong foot. Since I quickly updated my email to:
Pronouns: Yo! G,/WTF/NSS?
Lesson to Self: If a writer’s style and capabilities are not at least somewhat evident in 6-million words, maybe it ain’t gonna be a fit. Only reason I worked 50+ years (looking back on it) was to learn to do some really neat shit.
(Neat shit example: Like my firefighter/EMT son calling in his first-ever two helo medevac and running the LZ at the scene of a major rollover, people ejected, car accident Wednesday. If you don’t get excited about your job? Only kind of job really worth having is either educational or adrenal, as we’ve stone-ground Life. I digress)
Also, in the Ure’s kitchen: Anyone ever come across some actual scientific data on which pan oil has the lowest “friction coefficient” for various temperatures? Which releases from a stainless pan best? Olive oil, coconut, canola, MCT…I mean which is scientifically best? (Why can’t we focus as a nation on simple, healthy things, instead of rerunning a political circus on Jan 6th?)
One impeachment is a crowd, two (even faux) would be a stadium? Z’at it?
