A Late Summer Mélange

As we head into the last semi-official week of summer, at least here in America, I wanted to keep it light this week. I had something else in mind, but I realized I was taking next week off and not feeling very serious as a result. I bet a lot of people are in the same place, as the summer winds down. Here in Lagos, the schools start the day after Labor Day this year, so next week is a big vacation week. Parents are prepping for school and non-parents are enjoying family free time at the beach.

Of course, the end of the summer means the news cycle picks up again. The FBI document dump appears to be queuing up, so that means the Left will be turning the sewage hose on full blast in order to distract us. Taking some time off before the lunatics are back at full screech is a good idea. As we get closer to the 2020 Democrat primaries, the lunacies is sure to reach levels we never thought possible. I did a little on this in the show, but I suspect we are in for an interesting autumn.

One of the funny things about doing a lot of traveling in your business life is that vacation often means no going anywhere. When I was a young man, vacation meant going somewhere for sun and fun. Years of traveling and I now look forward to take at least one week a year where I just stay home. I plan to leave Lagos next spring, so I am looking forward to a week of cleaning out closets and making trips to the landfill. It’s not a glamorous way to spend a week, but it beats being in a hotel room.

I’ve also found that the vacation at home is much more relaxing that taking a trip somewhere. These days, you can never get away from work, as something always comes up that you have to address. When I’m on a trip that is always in the back of my mind, especially if I’m in a different time zone. At home, I just leave the e-mail client up and take a look from time to time. I don’t feel like I’m missing anything and I have the peace of mind that I can address anything as it comes up.

Whenever I think about that fact, I wonder how people lived in the age before constant electronic communications. I would imagine most people just assumed you could not reach someone on vacation, so they figured it out on their own. That and there was probably more respect for people’s time away from the office. Not to sound like a Bolshevik, but the technological revolution has led to the enslavement of the population in ways the old Robber Barons never could have imagined.

This week I have the usual variety of items in the now standard format. Spreaker has the full show. I am up on Google Play now, so the Android commies can take me along when out disrespecting the country. I am on iTunes, which means the Apple Nazis can listen to me on their Hitler phones.

The old days were glorious…you called in every other day…and your assistant was careful to triage since without a computer or email–there was a limited set of things one could do. Now, no one thinks twice of dropping a 47 page powerpoint deck and associated financial model on you at 1am while on vacation–with the note “I know you are on vacation, but could you annotate this with your feedback and revert before my meeting at 9?

A local employer requires that supervisors carry a company phone. They have a 15 minute window to respond and 1hr window to arrive on site. 1day to arrive to site when on vacation. I’m grateful that in this small community that I can afford to laugh at the tyranny.

That’s the kind of wage-cuckery that immigration promotes – strivers trying to escape shithole countries willing to work on 5 minutes notice at 4am on a Sunday, with bosses and guys like Jeb! slobbering over their “work ethic.”

Spanish galley slaves had a work ethic, too, but it doesn’t mean American quality of life should be reduced to this lowest common denominator.

Can confirm, in the advertising industry. Thirty years ago there were ordinary office hours, but sometimes people worked late before a presentation. Today, more and more agencies have added office features designed to make it as convenient as possible to never leave work. Pool tables, stocked kitchens, company lunches and breakfast too sometimes. Employees on a fixed salary are now expected to routinely show up on weekends and work through dinner during the week, the company of course generously buying pizza. It stacks up to this: getting 60 to 80 hour weeks out of people whom they pay, in effect,… Read more »

Reminds me of the articles I saw in the last decade touting the glories of the “gig” economy, where we could all enjoy earning just enough to barely get by if you live in a shared apartment or at home with the parents. Never enough money to save any of it, let alone buy a home and have a family. And it encourages rootlessness as people leave their home towns to find work, rootlessness that further dismantles the high-trust Christian society our ancestors created. This rootless, precarious lifestyle is a constant stress on the human spirit, which then brings other… Read more »

Spend 4 hours a day awake with your wife while your kids are turning to cutting, weed and worse out of neglect, do neglected house and yard chores on Saturday, sleep in Sunday, skip church again b/c who has the time, and get up and do it again. Repeat until dead.

Church on Sunday? Teens with part-time jobs are expected to work on Sunday – and part-time means 30-40 hours a week and totally flexible availability – all for the princely sum of $10-$12 an hour. When I was a stupid liberal kid/teen, I used to be bored on weekends; now I remember the ‘blue laws’ with great fondness as part of a better time.

I once had a boss who was sending me work requests from his honeymoon cruise. When I went to Hawaii for vacation, literally the first 3 hours after landing were spent working on an urgent financial model. He would give small rewards for extra work. We learned that all we had to do to get a free lunch was to start loudly discussing where we should go, and he would offer to order in so we could keep working. Of course the joke was on us, because we were effectively working over lunch for $8 per hour.

In addition to different economic policy for different levels, so too with voting – even in an ethnostate.

How can he/she use the phrase “1st time in the history of mankind” while referring to something concluded to be only 150 years old? Human history spans 100,000 years. Someone should explain that barter is also free trade capitalism, so destroying the world economic system would give us exactly what anarchocapitalists have been dreaming about. Capitalism without government intervention of global banks.

Unless you are an hourly worker, or in a profession without projects (e.g. nurse or cop), vacation is really about flexing your work schedule, not about actually working less for a period of time. I used to work for a company that paid you for unused vacation time. I would save two weeks and get an extra paycheck, but would end up working the same hours for the year. The stress of working 60 hours the week before and after a vacation made it not worth it. I figure I will retire early and take all the vacation I want.

You’re missing an important part- there were no Antifa accusers in the NYC Antifa/PB brawl. They refused to come forward and press charges. Those cases have no “victims.”
Similar to the Cantwell case where the Antifa he pepper sprayed refused to speak to authorities. Didn’t stop him from getting 10 mos in jail/house arrest.

Precisely my point in citing the Talmudry of making the cops the “accusers.” Anonymous accusers are one small step removed from fictitious ones. Like “campus rape,” we’re essentially asking defendants accused of Hatecrime to prove their innocence without even knowing the contours of the charges and evidence they’re trying to negate.

This also ties into Z’s segment on red flag laws. Between the pre-crime of red flag laws and charging crimes against ghost accusers, there’s little pretense of Anglo-Saxon justice left.

The investment bank where I work has a strict policy of forced two week vacation with no work login or even email or phone contact. The purpose is: 1) to make sure the business can still function without you; and 2) to make sure you aren’t secretly running a scam that needs your constant attention.

Nice variety. And your right. Working for a corporation is simply not necessary. There are all kinds of professions in America that pay really well. And a lot of them pack up and travel quick. Here’s just a few examples.

The banking industry has a regulation that requires such an absence for certain employees. Basically an opportunity to make sure that the employee is not cooking any books.

Yep – My Dad was a Banker and had this rule when I was a kid. They caught a few guys running scams this way. One had some “non-performing” loans written off the books (so the bank wasn’t looking them) that actually getting paid and routed into his own account.

The Red Flag laws are so obviously terrible, I am simply stunned that any Republican seeking reelection can support them and win. Based on hearsay, you lose literally all your Constitutional Rights. House searched, property seized, suspect punished / maybe killed, all without due process. Anyone who even considers supporting those laws should be expunged.

Anyone who has worked with models will be extremely suspicious of the man-made global warming crowd. Their data is sketchy. They’re using very long-term projections. And, I believe, that they have feedback loops. Anyone of those can cause massive issues with your results.

In any other field, no one would accept those results as a reason for massive disruption/changes to a company or strategy.

A decade or so ago some of the raw data was made public. It was blatantly sketchy and biased. As a former Financial Analyst I would have been immediately fired for using such crap – maybe prosecuted if any on that bs made it into a financial statement or large accrual.

Yep. I’m not even trying to say that the models are wrong. (Well, all models are wrong, but some are useful.) I have no clue. I just know that they’re not reliable and thus not useful. Who knows, maybe man-made global warming is happening, but those models sure don’t prove it.

That environmentalists hold them out as proof shows that they’re either liars or idiots. Either way, we shouldn’t listen to them. They’d be better served to admit their limitations and argue from there, but they don’t so screw them.

That’s the beauty of it, no one can prove it doesn’t exist. That pony must be there, somewhere.

Sort of like the new Trump “white supremacy” allegations. The old “Russian collusion” accusations could eventually not pass the smell test, when investigations continually came up dry. White supremacy is nebulous enough to have a very long shelf life.

Climate models use the old phrase, “Here is the conclusion on which I will base my assumptions.” If you remove the data manipulations and model only the actual raw temperature measurements, there is no warming. What are the odds of thousands of adjustments all supporting warming? Biggest scam in history.

Z,

I remember you doing a segment on the corruption at the FBI on December 29, 2017. It seems like nothing has really happened and the scandal had no effect on the 2018 elections. Is it possible that most people have totally become comfortably numb?

Also, what’s the song at the end?

It actually makes more sense if Rubio and Cruz were spied on early in the campaign. Conspiracies are often done to aid someone, not take someone out, if you don’t know who needs to be the one taken out.

The Clintons, the Obamas, and most of the major players seem to be awfully quiet lately. Barr and company as well. Things are percolating, most likely.

I suspect a deal has been cut. Pelosi agrees to run interference for Trump on the impeachment thing, claiming it would hurt their chances in the 2020 elections. Barr et al agree not to do anything of substance to the perpetrators. We are going to get a steady drip-drip-drip of leaks so that it doesn’t all hit at once. That will sort of quietly uncover what was going on, but in such a way that the peasantry doesn’t get out of control. The much ballyhooed IG report in 2018 was kind of a fizzle. Sure, he trashed Comey quite a… Read more »

Years ago read Andrew Mango’s bio of Kemal Ataturk. One of the most interesting sections concerned his pre-WWI Ottoman service in the Levant. Basically all his effort was spent trying to peel the same factions off each other that are still feuding today. It was insoluble then, the same holds today.

Just think: if Trump would just step aside NOW and clear the way, Tucker could get a genuine presidential campaign rolling, and be at least somewhat operational by this December, so nearly a year to campaign in earnest, with zero plausible Party competition. Tucker has already got serious national / media exposure, and his entry coupled with Trump’s exit would cause such a media firestorm he’d be a household name by the end of the week. Free of Trump’s goofball baggage, and being a much better, more intelligent, and far more well-informed public speaker, Tucker would seem like the only… Read more »

Christopher Caldwell has an outstanding article on Brexit at the Claremont Review of Books: WHY HASN’T BREXIT HAPPENED? https://www.claremont.org/crb/article/why-hasnt-brexit-happened-yet/ A quote from the article, apropos of being ruled by courts: “…These shifts in Britain’s constitutional culture have become obvious during the rolling European migration crisis of recent decades. The more courts took control of immigration policy, the harder immigration was to stop. As home secretary under David Cameron, May promised to limit Britain’s galloping population growth to “tens of thousands a year, not hundreds of thousands.” But net migration has been running at around a quarter-million ever since, rising as… Read more »

Great article, thanks. The overriding element, in the U.K. as it is here, is that the political conflict is not actually political, but existential. Who are we, as a culture? Who do we give the power to? How far are people willing to go to seize power, when they have but little claim to it? How do they try to justify such overreach?
