Study: Calif. Pot Industry Staying Illegal to Escape State’s High Taxes, Onerous Regulations
Post Date: 2018-03-11 13:21:20 by misterwhite
Californias trademark high taxes and overwhelming, onerous, costly and confusing regulations are preventing the state from reaping the revenue benefits of legalizing the $7 billion marijuana market, a new study by the California Growers Association concludes. As of Thursday, Californias Bureau of Cannabis Control has sent about 980 warning letters to unlicensed pot sellers and ordered a marketing company to stop advertising vendors who dont have permits, Bureau Chief of Communications Alex Traverso told CNSNews.com. Less than one percent (0.78%) of the states 68,150 marijuana growers have obtained licenses, and as little as 25 percent of the cannabis consumed in ...

Buffett Makes Fools of the Experts
Post Date: 2018-02-28 09:43:27 by Tooconservative
In 2007, Warren Buffett took a $1 million bet on an investment. He won. In his annual letter to Berkshire-Hathaway investors, made public on Saturday, he detailed the wagers final tallies. Here was Buffetts original bet: Over a ten-year period commencing on January 1, 2008, and ending on December 31, 2017, the S&P 500 will outperform a portfolio of funds of hedge funds, when performance is measured on a basis net of fees, costs and expenses. He wagered, in other words, that if he placed his money in a fund that simply tracks the 500 largest stocks in the United States, he would come out ahead of someone who places the same amount of money with any combination ...
Newsweek is unable to pay its bills, faces eviction
Post Date: 2018-02-27 21:04:29 by Tooconservative
When we checked in with Newsweek last week, the magazine had just published a news article critical of the magazines owners. That article only saw the light of day after a number of reporters and editors threatened to quit if it were spiked. It came after two top editors were fired and a raid based on an investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney. Today, the Daily Beast reports the struggling magazine is unable to pay its rent and may face eviction. Guardian Life Insurance, the sub-landlord for the companys downtown Manhattan office, informed International Business Times Inc. in late November that it owed several hundred thousand dollars representing unpaid, ...
A Million Dollars a Minute

A Million Dollars a Minute By Andrew P. Napolitano February 15, 2018 "Information Clearing House" - Imagine you open the faucet of your kitchen sink expecting water and instead out comes cash. Now imagine that it comes out at the rate of $1 million a minute. You call your plumber, who thinks youre crazy. To get you off the phone, he opines that it is your sink and therefore must be your money. So you spend it wildly. Then you realize that the money wasnt yours and you owe it back. Now imagine that this happens every minute of every day for the next three years. At the end of the three years, you owe back more than $6 trillion. So you borrow $6 trillion to pay back ...
'Seeing someone cry at work is becoming normal': Employees say Whole Foods is using 'scorecards' to punish them

'Seeing someone cry at work is becoming normal': Employees say Whole Foods is using 'scorecards' to punish them Whole Foods uses checklists called "scorecards" and tests called "walks" to ensure stores comply with a new inventory-management system. Employees say the system has crushed morale and led to widespread food shortages. "The stress has created such a tense working environment," a supervisor at a West Coast Whole Foods store said. "Seeing someone cry at work is becoming normal." Many employees at both the corporate and the store levels don't understand how OTS works, employees said. Whole Foods has a new ...

Benjamin Disraeli Every month the government apparatchiks at the Bureau of Lies and Scams (BLS) dutifully announces inflation is still running below 2%.

Bitcoin price falls below $6,000 as banker signals crackdown
Post Date: 2018-02-06 07:58:17 by Gatlin
The price of bitcoin fell below $6,000 (£4,300) for the first time this year as a leading central banker said it posed a threat to financial stability and signalled a global clampdown on the cryptocurrency. The new head of the Bank for International Settlements, Augustine Carstens, said bitcoin had become a combination of a bubble, a Ponzi scheme and an environmental disaster that threatened to undermine public trust in central banks. If authorities do not act pre-emptively, cryptocurrencies could become more interconnected with the main financial system and become a threat to financial stability, he said, speaking at Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany. ...
Senate to spotlight virtual currencies as bitcoin plunges
Post Date: 2018-02-06 02:43:30 by Gatlin
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Digital currencies such as bitcoin will be in the spotlight again on Tuesday as lawmakers in the U.S. Senate question top markets watchdogs over how to better regulate the highly volatile and risky emerging asset class. Christopher Giancarlo, chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), and Jay Clayton, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), will give testimony to the Senate Banking Committee amid growing global unease about the risks virtual currencies pose to investors and the financial system. The hearing follows a rout in the price of bitcoin, which plunged more than 15 percent to near a three-month low on Monday on concerns ...
History Is Repeating for Bitcoin
Post Date: 2018-02-04 23:31:58 by Gatlin
The tail end of 2017 represented the height of Bitcoin-mania. References to the virtual currency were everywhere, and the meme HODL (short for holding in the Bitcoin community) became almost as ubiquitous as FANG -- short for Action Alerts PLUS holding Facebook (FB) , Trifecta Stocks name Amazon (AMZN) , Netflix (NFLX) and Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL) . Now that bitcoin has reversed course, the excitement is fading. However, for those who have been following bitcoin for years, the current sequence of events seems familiar. Back in 2013, after trading quietly for years, bitcoin roared from below $100 to above $1000. What happened? Prior to that time, most people simply weren't aware ...
Major Banks Ban Buying Bitcoin With Your Credit Card
Post Date: 2018-02-04 23:18:39 by Gatlin
Most major U.S. credit card issuers have now banned the use of their cards to buy Bitcoin or other digital currencies, in a move intended to decrease both financial and legal risk. Bank of America began blocking cryptocurrency purchases on Friday, according to Bloomberg. JPMorgan did the same on Saturday. Citigroup also says it is halting cryptocurrency purchases on credit, and Capital One and Discover had already enacted their own bans. That means all of the top five credit card issuers have announced or implemented bans. The moves are above all in the banks self-interest. As Fortune previously reported, the mania surrounding cryptocurrency late last year appears to have motivated ...

Why Bitcoin Is the Most Dangerous Global Scam in 20 Years

When bitcoin inevitably crashes, inexperienced investors who believed the hype could lose everything. Originally published by Vivek Wadhwa on LinkedIn: "Why Bitcoin Is the Largest Ponzi Scheme in Human History During the late '90s, Silicon Valley venture capitalists and New York City investment bankers used phrases such as "monetizing eyeballs," "stickiness," and "B2C" to justify the ridiculous valuations of internet companies. They claimed conventional methods were inapplicable in valuing the dot-com companies -- which had no revenue -- because we were entering an entirely new economy.

Forget treason, Bannon opens a window on the serious possibility of money laundering
Post Date: 2018-01-05 10:34:17 by Willie Green
Trump watchers have been treated to a world-class cage match over the last couple of days between President Donald Trump and one of his political Svengalis, Steve Bannon.Lots of attention has been lavished on Bannon's charge, leveled in a new book by the journalist Michael Wolff, that Trump's son, Donald Jr., engaged in "treasonous" behavior by meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign. There are also requisite antics involving others in the Trump clan and the White House.All of that is entertaining, as is Trump's furious counterattack. He posits that Bannon has "lost his mind" and on Wednesday night unleashed one of ...

Nine Million American Men Pushed Out of Workforce by Cheap-Labor Policies, Says Obama Economist

Nine Million American Men Pushed Out of Workforce by Cheap-Labor Policies, Says Obama Economist immigration by Neil Munro 19 Dec 2017 Nine million working-age men have been pushed out of the workforce by the federal governments salary-cutting economic strategy, says a former economist for former President Barack Obama. The admission comes as some legislators in Congress renew their push for a huge dreamer amnesty that would increase the number of low-wage foreign workers who can take U.S. jobs. The nine million number comes from a new op-ed by Jason Furman, a top economic advisor to Obama. Without mentioning cheap-labor labor, Furman writes in the Wall Street ...
Germans Fear Tax Cut Will Spur US Investment and Growth
Post Date: 2017-12-21 02:54:18 by Tooconservative
The Democrats in Congress and the press have frantically tried to convince the American people that cutting businesses taxes wont do any good. This view is delusional, but we hear it so often it almost begins to sound plausible. Here is a contrary view from a different source, German industry: Germans fear huge loss of jobs from US tax reform. German investment in the US is expected to rise by 39 billion because of lower US corporate taxes. While Americans are anxiously awaiting full details of the tax bill now being finalized in Congress, German economists are warning that the changes sought by President Donald Trump mean that significant amounts of new investment ...
Bitcoin On Fire: Approaching $14K
Post Date: 2017-12-06 20:06:25 by Pinguinite
I'm sure a pullback is due at some point, but this is surpassing my most optimistic expectations. It's gone up about 15% in 24 hours, which was already a price from which a retrace would have been normal and expected. Next week, the CME is set to start trading "Bitcoin Futures" which are to be settled in cash, something I would equate to simply a betting house for what the real bitcoin price will be, and likely being implemented solely for the purpose of attempting to suppress the true bitcoin supply/demand price. They might as well be "futures" trading on daily temperature highs for some random US city. It would be just as legitimate. I am now wondering if ...
A College Football Player Lost His Scholarship Because of YouTube Videos. Now He's Fighting Back.

While technically a nonprofit, the National Collegiate Athletic Association pulls down nearly $1 billion in annual revenues, thanks in large part to multi-million-dollar deals with television networks that want to showcase America's best college athletes playing football, basketball, and a bunch of other sports. There's nothing wrong with that, of course. The market for televised sports is hotter, and more valuable, than it's ever been. But when one of those valuable student-athletes had the nerve to earn a few thousand dollars running a popular YouTube channelone that gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a college football playerthe NCAA told him to ...
America’s First Legal Weed Drive-Thru Is Here — and It’s Everything You Imagined
Post Date: 2017-11-27 01:21:16 by hondo68
(ANTIMEDIA) Las Vegas, NV A few months after recreational cannabis became legal in Nevada, Las Vegas now has its very own weed drive-thru. The NuWu Cannabis Marketplace is a cannabis megastore recently opened by the Paiute tribe. It is located on tribal lands and takes up 16,000 square feet, making it the largest dispensary in the area. The massive store employs over 100 people and offers a wide variety of cannabis products, including concentrates, edibles, vape pens and cartridges, pre-roll joints, and topical treatments. NuWu recently took a former bank window and converted it to a drive-thru, hoping to get each customer in and out in under 90 seconds. They launched ...

CBC News reports that Former OPP commissioner, MP, and federal Conservative cabinet minister Julian Fantino and former RCMP deputy commissioner Raf Souccar launched a business Tuesday that aims to connect medical patients with quality cannabis. The launch comes eight months before Canada legalizes recreational weed. The news is particularly noteworthy because both men previously issued harsh rebukes of legalizing the plant.

CBS Badly Misplayed Their Hand By Making 'Star Trek: Discovery' A Paid Streaming Exclusive [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2017-11-01 14:18:20 by Willie Green
I was excited to watch Star Trek: Discovery last night, CBSs return to a true Star Trek show in the age of JJ Abrams blockbusters. I set my DVR and gave it viewing priority over Fear the Walking Dead, because all the early buzz Id heard was stellar. But while I really did like the show, the process of watching it was a total disaster. Though Id set the recording earlier, football pushed all of CBSs programming out of whack so that 20 minutes of some Oprah special aired during the Star Trek: Discovery recording. I watched anyway, as there was extra time in the recording, so I thought maybe cable had adjusted according and squeezed in the full show by ...
