Might see more of this from those rich elites who thought they could get rid of most of the rabble but somehow control all their support staff. Farmers, cooks, cleaners, security men, waiters, butlers, all the rest will quickly decide to put their "bosses" out of their misery and start fresh without them. It's the elites who are non-essential. Money is beside the point.

The pair of writers danced carefully around the cause of death so I'll supply a hypothetical. He was attempting to cut expenses by laying off his janitorial staff and he lost his balance while trying to clean the outside glass in his windows. I put BB&B in the same category as Whole Foods and Starbucks, overpriced lefty merchandise designed to artificially boost the ego of customers who feel better by spending too much money on a product that is not so special. They needed to go out of business years ago. Arnal should not have sold his stock under the circumstances.

Thanks to commenters like Surviving the Billionaire Wars and Ray So-cal, for pointing out links for the developing FTX scandal. This FTX story may have some legs, although the usual suspects are probably already busy covering the trail. The principle governing this is, again, a simple one. Crypto is a fraud, probably designed as such for special purposes. Therefore, expect fraud almost everywhere you look in that field, and especially when large amounts of money are involved.
‘White Wave’ of Mail-In Ballots Slammed

PHILADELPHIA—Call it “the White Wave.” A flood of white envelopes containing mail-in ballots lofted Democrat candidates to victories in several key Nov. 8 races. Case in point: Democrat John Fetterman will occupy Pennsylvania’s coveted U.S. Senate seat instead of Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz. In that race—and several others—mail-in ballots acted as a breaker against the “Red Wave” of wins that Republican leaders had hoped would wash across the nation at a time when Congress and the White House are both Democrat-controlled.
Florida’s Fentanyl Crisis: The ‘Revolving
Door of Overdose’

Posted by earlybird 11/12/2022 6:40:04 PM Post Reply
Florida’s fentanyl crisis is a “revolving door of overdose,” a top health official says. According to Centers for Disease Control data, there were 7,738 reported overdose deaths in Florida between May 2020 to May 2021. From May 2021 to May 2022, that number rose to 7,942. According to Dr. Kenneth Scheppke, Deputy Secretary for Health at the Florida Department of Health (FDH), problems with illicit substances in the United States are nothing new, but they have become far more deadly because of fentanyl. Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid up to 100 times more potent than morphine. As little as two milligrams, equivalent to five grains of salt, can be fatal.

On April 3, 1965, a mere 57 years ago, Paul Harvey gave a commentary on ABC radio entitled, “If I Were The Devil,” in which he laid out Satan’s plan for America. If you have never heard it, I suggest you listen to him as you read this because all of what he said indeed came true. Most men try to figure out what God’s plan is.

With recent calls for “Pandemic Amnesty” from the groups who destroyed lives and businesses, closed schools, stripped away your freedoms and turned family, friends and neighbors against each other, the unvaccinated and truth tellers find themselves in a pickle. Morality and civility could argue that we should forgive those who vilified us for choosing medical sovereignty, non-compliance with unconstitutional mandates, and simply questioning the narrative, but it’s not that simple. Some “pro-vaxers” may have been legitimately uniformed or scared to blindly follow health guidelines and government mandates without question. But the mob mentality to demonize the unvaccinated and gaslight society into thinking we were the problem crossed a potentially unforgivable line.

The election last week defied reality. For example, John Fetterman, the Democrat who won the U.S. Senate race in Pennsylvania, promised more inflationary spending, more lenient treatment of felons amid a violent crime wave and more of the left’s radical, parent-dissing sexual agenda. Yet he won. Do you really believe that a majority of Pennsylvanians voted for a stroke-damaged, hard-core leftist who comes across as a professional wrestling villain? Celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz was not the strongest Republican candidate and was perceived by many as a RINO. But he should have prevailed in an election in which Democrats had to defend the Biden train wreck.

The Two Mikes were joined about an hour ago by Lt. General Thomas McInerney (ret’d), who presented a brief report on last night’s election results. General McInerney said the election was a repeat of 2020 with widespread vote manipulation by the Democrats and their Chinese paymasters. The general pointed especially to Pennsylvania and Arizona, reporting that 330 thousand votes were shifted from Dr. Oz to Fetterman, and in Arizona about 36,000 were shifted from Kari Lake to Hobbs. This kind of thing, he said, occurred across the country.

Instead of tabulating their ballot directly, voters were also told to put their ballot into a box under the tabulator so that their ballot may be tabulated at a later time
