… Nice Going , ObamaCraps [#OCC price hikes]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 22nd,2016

.. and are they loo – loos , folks ..

.. you are talking serious double digits , folks .

.. and these are the smaller states , too . None of the larger states have reported in , yet . But don’t expect them to have good news . Especially California …

.. [h/t — BloombergView.com(MeganMcArdle)]..
.. [link] to the news column ..

.. a pending trend : many of the folks are subsidized [around 85%] . Ouch ! …. Another : the folks that are being covered under OCC are generally older and sicker . That figures . Hate to tell you I told you so , but , I told you so , folks …

.. so will the news on OCC get any better ? Not likely . The regulators may want to keep a lid on price increases , but it will not work . Especially in the more conservative states . They do not want OCC to work , and they want their own people to be covered , but they also want them to learn a lesson . You cannot ignore the Laws of Supply and Demand , dummies !! …

… California has Really Lost Its Mind [#minimum wage]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 12th,2016

.. it sseems California has turned into ” LooneyLand by the Bay . ” They keep adopting policies that test the patience and logic of the rest of the Union . Now they have done something that has really made then look totally insane …

.. they have now adopted a $15 / hour minimum wage ,effective in 2020 . Ho crazy is that ? Plenty ..

.. Has anyone in the California legislature and or the body politic bothered to consult many of the nation ‘s best universities , which happened to reside in California . They can tell you folks the God ‘ s honest truth , if you idiots would listen . Adopting a $15 / hour minimum wage is economically insane .

.. [h/t — NYPost.com]..
.. [link] to the blog column ..

.. you can bet that many of the surrounding states [and more than a few Canadian provinces] are oogling at California business , with their area ‘ s lower wage levels . Most of those are either moderate or conservative in politic , so theyare not likely to follow California ‘ s lead . They are likely to put California in either the stocks or the pillory post , and poach those businesses with offers of lower costs and lower taxes …

… A New York City Tragedy [#eric garner]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,September 5th,2014

.. this was a needless death .

.. what was the N.Y.P.D. harassing a guy over untaxed cigarettes , especially with N.Y.C. ‘ s obscene level of cigarette taxation …

.. [h/t — NYDailyNews.com]..
.. [link] to the video ..

.. New York state ‘ s rate of cigarette taxes is bad enough . Then New York City loads it on on top of the state ‘ s very obscene cigarette tax rates . So , what did they expect to happen ? Nothing ? Duh ! …

.. haven’t those idiots studied economics , especially the Laws of Supply & Demand , of Human Nature , and the Law of Unintended Consequences . Those idiots have one rip – roaring black market going , and the N.Y.P.D. has more important things to do than attacking citizens over untaxed ciggies and what are known as ” loosies . ”

.. contrary to popular opinion and talking heads , the worst that I think that these folks are going to get is a manslaughter rap . Murder ?? No ! ….

.. no , I am not excusing the cop ‘ s misconduct . He used an unprofessional act [the chokehold ] . The use of the chokehold has been banned , and the cops participating should have damn well known better . They could have ” tased ” the guy to subdue him if they needed to …

… I have been tased , and trust me , it is not fun . I did it as a test when I was considering actually buying one . I wanted to understand what it was to be on the receiving end . If I was going to possess one of those things , then I felt the responsibility to the public to understand what I was doing ….

.. I obviously would not want to be shot in order to learn how to use a gun . But , before purchasing one , I will go to a gun range so that I know what it is to hold a weapon , to holster it , to care for it , and to shoot it . I think that it would be a common – sense maneuver before buying a gun …

… an Oil Price Shock [#a real possibility]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 10th,2014

.. it is possible , and it is real ..

.. unlike 1974 or 1979 , it is not something that can or might be reversed by a ” snap of the fingers ” …

.. [h/t — OilVoice.com]..
.. [link] to the economic report …

.. with Libya ‘ s decline , the possible damage in Iraq , and premiums that could price into the market , due to the effects on the Gulf nations and Saudi Arabia in particular , it could get nasty …

.. also , now , Russia is a major producer . It is also very heavily dependent on oil revenue as a source of tax revenue for its Treasury . The Russians may not want to turn off the ” tap . ” But events may do it for them …

.. also , here in the U.S. , if it happens before November 2016 , the DemoCraps will be crushed at the polls . Even Miz Hillary cannot overcome the effects of disastrous policies from the ObamaCrap administration …
