11.19.20 Day 191 of Lockdown
The government experts told us, for the first couple months
of lockdown, that masks were ineffective against covid so there was no need to
purchase any. Of course, that gave them time to stock
up their own stash, and then mandated the major online
retailers (e.g. EBAY, AMZN remove the supply for purchase).
At that point the government experts told us - oh, masks do
work but there are no high quality N-95 masks for you - instead make a 'face
covering' out of a sock or something.
What the actual scientific data shows, in line with previous
studies on influenza, is that masks are essentially ineffective:

Lack of Gun Violence
attempting to dismantle the US Constitution 2nd amendment like to throw out a
red herring about gun violence.
Fact is, homicide by gun
has been declining for decades:
Homicide by gun is not
even in the top thirty of most likely causes of death in the US anymore:
The good news is there
has been a dearth of multiple death shootings this year. The last big mass gun
homicide shooting in Vegas was almost three years ago now. Once attempts at
curbing 2nd amendment
rights fail in the congress these incidents decrease, as the realization gun
legislation is not supported by the citizen majority.
The bad news is that
after elections, when a legislative body increases or decreases in numbers, the
shooting again start back up in an effort to emotionalize the issue in yet
another legislation attempt.
In other words, mass
shootings should begin to increase after November...

folks have been asking my thoughts on how this plays out.
Scenario A (15% chance): Preventative measures work and Wuhan flu burns out in
30-60 days. Mild recession.
Scenario B (35% chance): Preventative measures help, but flu continues for
60-120 days. Minor pockets of social disturbance. Deep recession.
Scenario C (35% chance): Extreme flu over 120-300 days, major breakdown in
systems. Shallow depression. Mostly moderate social disturbances but significant
in some locales.
Scenario D (15% chance): The cold war that had been heating up into cyber and
economic warfare brings pandemics as just another engineered attack, first of

yet this many people doing nothing does not impact the vast
majority of americans. Indeed, nothing seems to have changed, hardly anyone
notices what those 800,000 actually do on the job.
Hence, what good are they?

illness outbreak) will require daddy government to solve the problem = voila!

The next logical step is combining a calendar with a to-do

Purchase steak and lobster for NYE
Write daily accomplishments
7pm Call Parents
Replace stairway tread
Trip to local lumber yard
Purchase angle finder
11am: Take family to movies
Work on website inventory; ship purchases
5pm: Cook for dinner guests
Play cards w family and guests
Write daily accomplishments
6 am Exercise
Develop new code for website
Play Risk with Fam
Date night with wife
Write daily accomplishments
After each item is accomplished, I highlight in italic to
show completed (rather than erase completely).
This calendar list now becomes a running calendar log of
everything completed in a day or week.
This written record provides value in a few ways:
- firstly it shows where you've been so you know where
you are going;
- helps keep on track with long term goals; helps time
estimating and time management; and
- should it ever become unfortunately necessary - proves
invaluable documentation in a contractual or legal dispute.

Gallup Poll of Americans: What is your Satisfaction and What are your Top
Pretty interesting data set. Americans have the
highest satisfaction since the depths of the last recession. Also, nobody cares
about 'gay rights' or 'climate change':
San Francisco a ‘green city’? Har!
SF produces essentially none of its
own power or water in the city. Instead it destroyed a native village and damned
one of the most beautiful valleys in north america and installed a massive
unsustainable infrastructure that requires constant energy, material and water
inputs. On the export side: their hazardous waste goes to landfills in the
counties where poor dark skinned people live.
Summary: Well, summing up the northern California water and
energy picture in just a few sites isn’t quite low hanging fruit. For a great
historical context on power and water in the western US you might read Cadillac
Desert, still the bible on the subject. Well documented and footnoted, one of
the major themes is how little water and power are available to major cities in
the US, especially LA and SF. That is, water and power are imported from vast
distances requiring major investments of time, energy, materials (and lives).
"The scale of this book is as staggering as that of Hoover
Dam. Beautifully written and meticulously researched, it spans our century-long
effort to moisten the arid West. . . . Anyone thinking of moving west of the

--St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Yes, despite what the great state and wiki garbage would have
you believe, there was a permanent Miwok village flooded by Hetch Hetchy
This page produces much information with numerous cites
regarding Miwok use of the valley (the name of the valley is based on the
original Miwok village) including documentation of inhabitation by Krober as far
back as 1925. (The majority of data on the subject is non-published NPS data
protected by ARPA and NAGPRA).
San Francisco Energy Production
If you want to believe the official state information, there
are no operating power plants in San Francisco:
Source: Ca Energy Commission
Status: No operating power plants
Of course, the state information is inherently poor.
There are, indeed, at lest three power plants in San
Francisco of public information:
University Of San Francisco Power Plant
Sf State University, Corp Yard Power Plant in San Francisco California
Sunset Reservoir North
Basin Power Plant
Production: 5MW “The 5-megawatt plant more than tripled
the city's 2-megawatt solar generation capacity”. LOL
Yep, combined SF solar production is still orders of
magnitude less  than Hetch Hetchy, which provides 17% of SF power .
San Francisco Solar production total: 8.1 MW
8.1MW, funny! Hetchy provides over 1.5 BILLION MW a year!
John Muir’s last great fight was to stop O’Shaughnessy Dam.
He lost when the Raker Act was passed and died of a broken heart just one year

yet built (and likely won't)!:

Interesting piece of propaganda. Note the year – 1913. The

reserve and rob the American citizenry of their specie and replace with scrip
debt. Mitchell the hack sought to prove his desired point, and still missed the

circulating book of the time, with ample applicable monetary references (might
one suspect the monetary references in the old testament as apocrypha there is a
wide body of substantiating secular corroboration and archeology evidence should
one choose to look).
As far back as Genesis (23:16) the shekel is defined as a
unit of standard silver weight passing as currency amongst honest merchants. By
Samuel II (14:26) the royal treasury is already stamping the shekel as the
government unit of trade whilst substituting a weight other than what previously
Government manipulation of specie goes back thousands of
years. Mitchell showed us, if anything, that the governments previous to 1913
were relatively honest compared to the frequent debasement of currency over the
past 100 years.

Do the Millennials Really Vote their Dollar on Social Justice?
Lyft has recently garnered 35% of rideshare

missteps by Uber, with Uber holding a higher rank for social justice awareness.
Pollfish surveyed millennials regarding Lyft vs Uber. 56% of riders with both
Lyft and Uber state that they place a higher value on cost vs quality of driver
and social justice issues.
Starbucks doesn't get it. People want value for

SBUX has topped.
There is no mathematical equation that will
allow America, or many other nations, to pay back the debt we've accrued - 'tis
a physical impossibility.
The plan, as has been the playbook since the
roman times, is to devalue the dollar so it becomes near worthless (hence the
debt is 'paid' in worthless scrip) and then substitute with something else. Of
course, if you are lucky they'll give you 5 for what you paid ten; though it may
be much less favorable.

2.13.18 More Realities of Starting Process, baby steps,
Long Before a Mine Ever Processes Earth
Even if you file
patent, even if you pay large sums for exploration, even if you pay even larger
sums to determine if the project is feasible, and then walk the
cultural/political gauntlet of ‘environmental compliance and social justice’
leading to a bankable feasible study (which shows the project could, maybe,
produce a profit), the chances of building a mine are quite low.
In fact, the world
gold council states that:
likelihood of a gold discovery leading to a mine being developed is very low,
with less than 0.1% of prospected sites leading to a productive mine." Read
more on the life cycle of a gold mine here:
The world gold council
actually produces facts regarding the gold mining industry, not the political
tripe manufactured by the Wilderness Society.
The saddest element of the story is that so few
folks even have a basic understanding of production, business or economics that
wilderness society and other propaganda arms can spew such drivel, which is
copied verbatim on other links/pages/outlets, with nary a fact check, much less
insertion of process, business or mining reality.

land for a few dollars an acre. Guess they never looked into the environmental
costs of mining in the US, yar!

outlaw cash (which is true). So, what is the purpose of cash? In other words,
cash in only a means to an end, not the means itself.
2. Gold/Silver? He has been
wrong on this trade for 4 years. Wrong time of the business/economic/credit
3. Museum quality
collectibles? Sure, always nice to have something like that. And who exactly
will pick it out for you to ensure it isn’t fake?
4. Land? Land w/o water
rights or contaminated land is worse than worthless, it is a liability. Cash
flow single family homes? Multifamily units? REITs? TICs? Any the other
42,000 ways to invest? Sure, all good – but what, where, when and with who?
He gets terrible reviews
from folks that fell for his hype letters:
Bottom line, all terribly
vague writing that is, at best, a crap shoot.
Better to buy/sell on a
tactical basis in line with your longer term goals imho.

accordingly. Not like main stream media accepts the fact life it what you put

at the Callan Periodic Table of Investment Returns
to track the return of the various asset classes over a
period of time.
Below is a Callan chart for nine asset classes ranked between
the years 1993 and 2012.
This chart I provide here tracks just five asset classes
(stocks are grouped rather than split), and the period of performance is longer
- 1972-2015, showing how many times each asset class came in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th
We can see that over that 33 year performance period a few
* Cash generally performs poorer than the other four asset
* Stocks and Bonds tend to perform neither the best nor the
worst over the years, but tend to perform in the middle of the pack.
* Gold and REITs tend to either perform very well, or very
* REITS in particular tend to outperform the other market
Hence, making investment sector choices - heavily weighting one
over another - will provide for a better than average return (so long as you
generally pick right!)

their family loot the site because a) The families are desperately poor after 60
years of communist rule and, therefore b) no respect for the government 'law'.
