  • White House: We Don’t Need Special Prosecutor for the Clinton Foundation

    kingu to bkopto

    Most transparent administration in history, where a Secretary of State pads her family’s bank accounts with tens of millions, selling access, and then raises two billion to go do the same with the Oval Office...again.

    I wonder what the nightly rate for the Lincoln Bedroom will be under Bill Clinton’s third term in the White House? At least a million a night, I would imagine - think they’ll use AirBNB, or AirDNC?

    Truthfully, about 25% of the items I get from China aren’t worth anything, and thankfully, all have been refunded. I did feel bad for one vendor, the item didn’t arrive for weeks and in the end, I filed a claim after no response from the seller. The day after I was refunded, it arrived, and of course, no response from the seller when I tried to contact them to repay for the item.

    Considering how eBay works, I don’t blame them in the slightest. If they never respond, I can’t grade them on communication, and so long as they keep at least two metrics above 4 stars, they will continue on eBay. (Metrics are shipping rates (free shipping automatically gets 5 stars), communication can only be graded if they respond, so there’s a second automatic 5 stars if they never respond... shipping time (automatic 5 stars if they have tracking information in 24 hours), and item as described (the only metric which can’t be flubbed.))

  • Earthquake leaves at six dead in central Italy

    kingu to CyberAnt

    I’ve been at the epicenter of some pretty good shakers; the Whitter Narrows quake of 1987 comes to mind when thinking of this quake; unreinforced masonry buildings at the epicenter with a shallow depth of 8 miles (It was a 5.9.)

    Considering the building standards in California, I would not want to imagine being in Italy (6.2 vs 5.9) with an even shallower quake (6 miles instead of nearly 9) with a higher magnitude.

    I hope that most survived with just scrapes and bruises but rationally, three died in Whittier directly from the quake, and five more from associated events, so I’m going to really believe the PAGER assumption that the deaths will most likely be in the dozens if not hundreds and that at least hundreds if not thousands of unreinforced heritage buildings failed during this quake.

    EBay and China:

    Reduced or non-existent listing fees.
    Reduced or non-existent end of sale fees.
    Top rated discount for item price, but of course, not on shipping.
    Paypal’s transaction discount for China (10 cents a transaction vs 40 cents for most domestic customers)
    Postage cost in China is only to USPS depot, all packages from there are free.

    So, if I sell an item for 99 cents plus $3.00 shipping, my eBay fees are 15 cents to list (per month), 34 cents in end of auction fees, 45 cents in paypal fees, the label is 3 cents and the packaging is 22 cents, and I pay DHL Global Mail $1.55 to ship the package. $2.74 in costs, I make a buck and a quarter per item.

    Now, if I was in China, I'd have free shipping, and price the item at $1.55. My costs: 0 cents for a BIN listing (GTC), 11 cents if I cancel the item. End of auction fees are a flat five cents for items under $5. Paypal charges a transaction fee of 8 cents plus 2 cents per $2, the labels are a half cent each, and the bags are 7 cents if I buy the premium ones. Postage from Hong Kong to the depot is $5 per pickup up per bin (think watermelon bin) plus 18 cents a mile.

    So .05 + .10 + .005 + .07 + effectively free shipping = .225 per package (call it a total of 30 cents total for a moderate volume seller.)

    I still make my buck and a quarter, though very likely I'm getting MUCH higher sales as I'm undercutting a US based seller by no less than $2.44 each sale. European delivery the seller pays 17 cents per hundred miles from Berlin, Africa is a flat $4.50 for packages under 10 ounces, Asia & Pacific is $2.50, and Australia & Russia are $3.75 - for most countries, full tracking is included.

    As for authoritative links, there are none. You open your business in China on eBay, you sell 20 items to someone (say your girlfriend), you get the feedback, and then you make an appointment for an eBay representative to set you up with preferred pricing for both eBay and Paypal.

    The ‘fees’ are ‘high’ to some people's visions, $800 per month for an anchor store on eBay with an inventory of up to 100,000 items, $400 per additional 100,000 items. The five cents fee goes against your monthly fee, so if you sell 40,000 items a month, you're paying that $800 fee plus a nickle for each item beyond it. But really, meeting that item number goal is easy.

    Once you get above 1/2 kilo, prices for shipping go up dramatically (and you'll see this reflected in the pricing from sellers in China.)

    I had an offer from a person in China to manage my entire inventory; I fill up a few sea containers full of product, it arrives there, they photograph it and list it using my name, and deduct the costs and deposit payment right into my US paypal account. Fee per item listed was 27 cents, per item sold was 47 cents, if I put forward $100,000 in seed money, I could expect to pocket $273,600 in the first year.

    Trust me when I say I really should have done it. Oh, and the best parts... Negative feedback has to reach 10 percent before it becomes an issue, with every negative feedback removed for a package delivered within 21 days to the US, 30 days to Europe, 45 days to Africa or 75 days to South America & Mexico.

    Amazon charges about twice what eBay does to those in China (but they get $3.00 in shipping) with A-Z resolution covered so long as the item is available for online tracking within 72 hours of purchase.

  • Graduate Students Clear Hurdle in Effort to Form Union

    kingu to DoughtyOne

    First and foremost, public or private universities have little care for the costs, since all they have to do is raise the tuitions again - it is all done with other people’s money, so little incentive to fight this much.

    Then there’s all the professors who would have to start showing up for classes and maybe even grade their own student’s work if they dismissed these graduate students. That’s not going to happen.

    Most especially, these aren’t employees. It is settled law which the labor board rejected in a clearly partisan action.

    Funny how law is settled when it favors liberals, and a ‘bad decision’ when it favors rational thought.

    No, it is called a media who have been shown in DNC e-mails to be lap dogs for the party, doing exactly as ordered when they are ordered to do so. Those same lap dogs run to stick a mike in front of the face of anyone who will forward the DNC’s e-mailed agenda.

    ‘Did Russia hack the DNC? Who knows who did it, but it is absolutely disgusting what they are doing there. Buy your way into presidential appointments, buy your way into meetings with the president - is there nothing that the DNC won’t sell?’

    ‘Oh, right, the Clintons are likely already setting up the AirDNC ad for the Lincoln Bedroom, renting it out once again. I wonder how much the cost per night will be? It was only $100,000 when Bill was messing with the intern in the Oval Office, probably half a million now.’

    The only perfect counter is getting back on message, let the media continue their party over someone trying to use the sacrifice of their son to score political points. Get off the Hillary lines and address them as the Clintons.

    Bill's third term, raise your hand if you want your daughter to serve as an intern in the Clinton White House. Bill Clinton's glowing face as he signed NAFTA - Hillary might say she's now against TPP, but wasn't it her State Department who set up these trade negotiations? Who built the foundations for TPP?

    What was it with all the Spanish at the DNC? Isn't this America? Don't we speak English?

    Where's Hillary's list of potential SCOTUS nominees? Who does she want to put on the court to not rule on laws but make them?

    I'm sorry, continuing on sideshows dilutes the message. There are plenty of things that Trump can talk passionately about, and even more, he knows how to stand back and let others speak passionately on the topics.

    Mr. Trump needs to realize that the media now has had over a year to study his tactics and adjust. He likewise needs to adjust his and start throwing them a few new curveballs.

    I don't know if he needs to throw curve balls, fastballs over the plate should be enough. Terrorism, and every act of terrorism followed by demands that America disarm. The use of every tragedy to forward their agenda. The daily victims of illegal immigration. The creating of more government programs and more taxes, rather than getting out of the way of people to create jobs.

    These are fastballs that the public will appreciate.

    I know Trump likes to be the entertainer rather than repeating positions, the media will drool for those moments and use it to fuel the next outrage. Focus on the fastballs, pimp Obama's line 'don't boo, VOTE', stay on the target.

    And of course, it is all about SCOTUS; Trump's pushed his list of potential nominees, where's Hillary's? Do people want a hand out, or a hand up? Are we to be governed by executive fiat, or through our actual system of government? Laws made by judges and bureaucrats. Fastball, fastball, fastball.

    Trump needs an infomercial to let Monica tell her story.

    So you're saying that Trump should pay for an infomercial for the DNC? When pushed, Monica would admit maybe it was inappropriate for her boss to do things, but otherwise, she is 'the first victim of cyberbullying' in her own words. Maybe she was thrown under the bus, but she was unfairly attacked by those seeking to harm the presidency...

    The only effective use of Monica would be her blue dress and the caption on the blip vert saying, 'Do you really want to let this man back in the White House?' or 'Parental Advisory: Bill Clinton's looking for more interns.'

    What’s changed? Media stopped the generic attacks against Trump and found some very specific attacks that strike body blows. ‘Crying baby’, ‘attacks against a dead solder’s grieving father’, these are hitting flesh rather than sliding off.

    Media were advertising for Trump when they were talking about his building a wall between the US and Mexico and laughing about Mexico paying for it.

    And you can expect this pattern to continue; overwhelming pushing of every story that they find tests well with audiences (we’ve already seen the e-mails that the DNC uses to control the media), and every misstep by Bill Clinton’s 3rd term team utterly ignored.

    They are in lockstep right now, as evidenced by the universal descriptor of Trump’s speech as ‘dark’ (which of course started before he even spoke a single word...)

    The only silver lining is that had these attacks stopped as soon as they showed they were being effective, I’d be deeply worried. Instead, they are pressing the attack. Which means there will be a limited cycle it will run, and Trump will likely bounce back.

    Oh, and of course, every matrix in every poll is maxed for Bill Clinton’s wife. Which means automatically adding in the margin of error to Hillary, and subtracting it from Trump to make the gap as wide as possible.

    At every level, our laws (and policies) are being shaped to cover every single exception, which is why idiotic things like this keep creeping up.

    Laws should never take into account exceptions. Both the jury and the judge can nullify penalties for exceptions. ‘This is something that the law wasn’t built to prevent, therefore we’ll let it go.’

    And honestly, the only way to clean up this national disaster is to start stripping out millions of laws and go back to the generic. Stop trying to twist laws to cover all exceptions and simply write laws simply.

    It will take a gigantic effort and a very very strong leader to clean up this disaster, and there is exactly none in the House, and a couple senators which might have enough sanity left to actually do something.

    Oh, and of course, eliminate the body of laws created by the courts and the executive and return law making solely to the legislative where it belongs.

    Interesting list.

    I, however, believe that it is entirely wrong.

    I would support a 100% blockade of all ships and aircraft from all of the Middle East and northeast Africa until certification is made that the terrorist elements have been destroyed. As Israel has already performed this task, they would be the sole exception. Turkey can work on their certification.

    I’d imagine that after the first week of squawking that this was unfair, racist and criminal that the Saudis and others would finally leave their mansions and actually deal with the problem.

    The fix was in 2 years ago for Hillary & Bill’s third election as president. Everyone knew it, some chose to live in a fantasy world. But then again, isn’t that were most liberals live all the time?

    Anything and everything not to talk about the content which details payment for access to the president to discuss policy, payment for consideration for appointments. And DNC control over the media deciding what can be covered and what must be suppressed.

    The party of corruption continues sailing along, and the former chief of that ship is now in charge of Hillary’s 50 state campaign, a cushy payoff for a job well done.

    Well that Democrats continue to shout about Citizen’s United and demand that it be overturned; they never were good sports about competition.

  • Handy Graphic of Everyone Who Donated to the DNC Expecting Political Appointments

    Huh, Christopher Lowe thanked the DNC for getting him into the roundtable with the president on May 23rd, 2016. Two days before, he donated $32k to the DNC. One of the many donations which put people on the roundtable with POTUS, even though the lawyers repeatedly warned that WH counsel doesn’t want to see any buying of access, as it violates federal law.

    There really is a treasure trove in there for an ambitious FBI agent to team up with a prosecutor and really just run hundreds of names through corruption trials.

    All those freaks in the audience crying and cheering for an weird looking old Commie who sold them out.

    Come on, Peter Pansexual, you were supporting a commie and are upset because the central committee favored the wife of a high placed party official? That's the system you wanted, wasn't it?
