S&P 500 down 7.6% today

Since February 6th, I’ve been warning to sell stocks.

How much lower can the market go? Quite a bit lower. In 2007-2008, the S&P 500 was down more than 50% from it’s peak, and that was only because of overlending, and not because of an external black swan event that has nothing to do with the business cycle. So stocks can go a lot lower.

Final Iowa poll, New Hampshire polls

Emerson poll of “likely caucus-goers” has Bernie ahead of Biden by 7 points.

Three new New Hampshire polls, Bernie leads all of them. As I’ve been saying for a while, I don’t see how Bernie can possibly lose NH with momentum from IA, and I don’t see how he can possibly lose NV with momentum and NH. He’ll probably lose SC, but by how much? With that momentum, does he score a knockout blow on Super Tuesday?

The whitest cities in America

10 Whitest Cities In America For 2019

I’m not surprised that cities in eastern Washington, Idaho, Montana and South Dakota are very white. Darker people don’t like cold weather.

Springfield, MO as the second-whitest city is sort of a surprise. It turns out that Missouri, despite being in the South, is a very white state, and Springfield is whiter than the state as a whole. Which is the opposite pattern of most cities which attract a darker population than the less urban areas of the state.

And Scottsdale: I think of Scottsdale as a suburb of Phoenix rather than a “city,” but yes, technically it’s a city. Maricopa County as a whole is less white than Missouri. But the Mexican minorities in Maricopa County seemed pretty well behaved. Mexicans are definitely a better minority to have around than the blacks.

Cholula Sweet Habanero sauce vs Tabasco Habanero Sauce

The Cholula stuff has to be the mildest habanero sauce ever. I don’t even think it’s as hot as Tabasco’s regular sauce.

But the Tabasco Habanero Sauce, that’s caliente! (Also, it’s thinner and more vinegary than the Cholula which has a more syrupy consistency.)

Strange that the stuff made in Mexico is way milder than the stuff made in the United States. Is Cholula used by real Mexicans, or is it just for gringoes?

Bloomberg for Democratic nominee for 2020

If by some miracle Bloomberg won, he would be a month shy of 79 when taking office, that’s a year older than Reagan was when Reagan left office. And people think that Reagan started going senile while he was President.

If Democratic voters want an old white man who’s not a crazy liberal, they already have Biden. What does Bloomberg add to this? Although, if I personally had to choose one over the other, I’d choose Bloomberg, because Bloomberg would issue executive orders to prevent the proles from consuming fattening foods.

But seriously, the big thing going for Biden is that the blacks and the prole whites both like him, and I don’t see either of those two groups being fans of Bloomberg.

Why doesn’t Bloomberg just retire and spend time with his two grandkids?

One of Trump’s biggest character flaws

Trump has this belief that he can have a personal talk with someone, and then they will automatically become loyal to him. This interpersonal strategy probably appeared to work most of the time when he was a billionaire businessman, not because of Trump’s charisma, but because people had to suck up to him in order to make money.

But it doesn’t work that way in government where people don’t need Trump. Most of his senior administration people are serving for self-actualization purposes, they can quit their jobs and make more money working as lobbyists. And among those who do need their jobs, they are often outside of Trump’s ability to simply say “you’re fired!”

Trump first revealed this character flaw when he invited Comey to a personal conversation, and it just made Comey hate Trump even more.

Consequently, the Trump administration is staffed with never-Trumpers and other types who hate him because Trump foolishly thought he could make them loyal with his non-existent personal charm, so there’s an almost unlimited number of people who will say bad things about him to Congressional Democrats.
