Okay, so it's 19F out there right now. And it's only mid-November. With 3-5" predicted tonight. Life is good.
Ten day: 70/50 every day. Possibility of our first rain on Black Friday.

Meh. Connecticut is a complete basket case, having been run into the ground by its leaders for decades. (Don't forget, I lived in Fairfield Co. for 15 years.) Wells Fargo is not doing well. Maybe they don't have the capital. And the article states the Greenwich area is now designated as distressed. The 2008 crisis hit that area hard because the white collar jobs in NYC dried up. The old money is being replaced by the nouveau riche who are much more strapped. Connecticut politics/taxes have made living there almost untenable, and headlines a few years ago were about hedge funders etc. moving to cheaper locales like Florida. Their housing market is in a slump. GE left and took "800 corporate executives". NYC stock brokers have been marginalized by online trading.
Greenwich is no longer what it used to be.
Actually, that seems remarkably responsible to me. I'm shocked

I want to write Trump’s commercials. Most would consist of her saying in ‘16 all the bad things that would happen if Trump were elected. The rest would be themed on four years ago she could barely walk, now she wants to run?

Styx takes crypto, and had that tax adviser on yesterday, and if you take crypto there are tax reporting considerations, valued at the point of contribution. Sounds like a pain in the neck. Also, crypto seems to track you now. I thought it was supposed to be anonymous but I guess not.

I remember when I used to work on military SATCOM stuff, that you had to assume GPS was not available (i.e. it would be jammed) . Apparently that's the case even during war games.
Ironically GPS was developed for the military, but it is really only useful for commercial applications.
Okay. Where to begin. At first GPS had two channels. Miltary and commercial. Commercial was randomly degraded. Well guess what. Three commercial receivers in proximity and you start getting close to MilSpec. In times of war the commericial was supposed to be degraded to near useless. Great crashing shit everywhere is not going to be a good thing. So they gave it up are supposedly everyone got the good data all the time. Now it doesn't matter. The satellites in common usage will be ummmm, physically compromised.
Without weighing in I would suggest it is unlikely the military has no alternative to the GPS system we know about.
It's quite useful against a less sophisticated enemy... Which is who we fight most often

You charge sbway riders 1/4th th cost of the ride. not 1/4th the total cost, just 1/4th the operating costs. Yeah, that's right. Taxpayers across the country buy you every light bulb and paper clip and still step up with 4/5ths of the operating expenses. What is this "we" you parasite?

My short Gold / long Crypto pair trade, is not doing so well.

This is so awesome. Like Trump, AOC understands how to suck all the oxygen out of the room. It's fascinating how much coverage FoxNews gives to a 29 year first time rep.
Why is anyone surprised that a Socialist isn't giving anyone a choice?

OMG. Michelle Obama is literally talking up her book by claiming the Presidency belongs to the people. Between GWB & BHO we had 16 years of rampant corporatism and special interests and deep state and imposition of bureaucratic fiat.
I feel like this goes way back. I think Reagan wen to Washington to stop this sort of thing, but quickly realized he couldn't, or was perhaps scared off by the assassination attempt 3 months into his Presidency. Since then, nothing but corporatism. I'm surprised that Trump has lasted this long...

Trump Eyeing Staffing Shakeup in Cabinet and at White House
That will be telling if he can break with the Neo-cons the Ryan/McCain/Rubio crowd foisted on him, or not.
He is huge on loyalty and trusts pretty much no one. It's gotta be hard to pick support staff when you don't trust anyone.
His era was more rugged individualist and not team player.
