  1. My taxes go down about $5000 this year, according to my CPA. So 2500 loaves of bread I can make into crumbs.
  2. Tough to hire new people when the drug test failure rate in the rust belt is upwards of 80%. There are literally thousands of good paying blue collar jobs sitting unfilled. Don't worry, minimum wage will be $15 a hour soon.

    Paul Krugman: The Economic Fallout By PAUL KRUGMAN COMMENT2016-11-09T00:42:44-05:0012:42 AM ET It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover? Frankly, I find it hard to care much, even though this is my specialty. The disaster for America and the world has so many aspects that the economic ramifications are way down my list of things to fear. Still, I guess people want an answer: If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never. Under any circumstances, putting an irresponsible, ignorant man who takes his advice from all the wrong people in charge of the nation with the world’s most important economy would be very bad news. What makes it especially bad right now, however, is the fundamentally fragile state much of the world is still in, eight years after the great financial crisis. It’s true that we’ve been adding jobs at a pretty good pace and are quite close to full employment. But we’ve been doing O.K. only thanks to extremely low interest rates. There’s nothing wrong with that per se. But what if something bad happens and the economy needs a boost? The Fed and its counterparts abroad basically have very little room for further rate cuts, and therefore very little ability to respond to adverse events. Now comes the mother of all adverse effects — and what it brings with it is a regime that will be ignorant of economic policy and hostile to any effort to make it work. Effective fiscal support for the Fed? Not a chance. In fact, you can bet that the Fed will lose its independence, and be bullied by cranks. So we are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight. I suppose we could get lucky somehow. But on economics, as on everything else, a terrible thing has just happened.

  5. Complete waste of money and you need a new HVAC contractor. The local guy put in my new Daiken a/c and furnace. Said he didn't want to see it for 2 years. I'm sure if anything happens within the 12 year warranty he will cover me. I'm having him out this year after 2 years just to have things checked out.

  7. Saw this yesterday. While I hate the idea of more consolidation in the telecom industry, this is a good move. Sprint has struggled for years with coverage and speed. Tmobile has made big progress after the failed merger with AT&T. We will be left with 3 carriers, all about the same size. T-Mobile will continue to be the disrupter and increase performance and decrease prices. Sprint has the spectrum T-Mobile needs to really compete with Verizon and AT&T. Hopefully the phase out CDMA all together in the near future.

    Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown

    I like Bourdain. He's center left and I'm center right but he has an open mind. He addresses some pretty controversial issues on both sides. He would be a fun guy to share a beer with.

    Never had a problem although we have only ever turned in 2 claims. With Progressive/ASI now as they are the cheapest. My agent knows the ins and outs with each company. Up until a year or so ago ASI wouldn't have covered my shop. Lots of stupid exceptions in the insurance world. Is stay with the same company if they held the rates. All of the jack them up 10% the first year. Our customers would fire us if we did that.

    I use Directv Now. Check them out, or Doing, or PS Vue. YouTube TV might work too. I get all the hockey channels including nhl network. I switch insurance companies every year. The old companies always go up. Soon as I get the notice I have the agent shop it. They get paid more for new customers so they are happy to do it.
