Man, oh man, I may just have to spend the next forty eight hours watching the international markets anticipating all this wonderful great news. 8) :lol:

I am going to have to dust off my party hat in the closet.

Home Depot Ties Opioid Crisis to Recent Surge in Store Theft

Home Depot Inc. executives said the nation’s opioid crisis could be contributing to an unexpected surge in thefts from its stores.

The company said organized criminals are stealing millions of dollars’ worth of goods from it and other retailers and storing the merchandise in warehouses. The theft, which retailers call shrink, has gotten so bad that it will narrow Home Depot’s operating profit margins next year, executives said during a meeting with analysts and investors.




“This is happening everywhere in retail,” Chief Executive Officer Craig Menear said. “We think this ties to the opioid crisis, but we’re not positive about that.”

Home Depot’s admission is one of the first times a major U.S. retailer has specifically called out the opioid epidemic as a factor in its financial results. Retailers lose about $51 billion in sales from shrink annually, according to a report from the National Retail Federation, which found that more than two-thirds of retailers had seen an increase in what it calls “organized retail crime activity” over the past year.

Within the greatest healthy, strong, and robust economy on earth the Federal Reserve at the year end here has decided to inject the American economy with half a trillion dollars, even more interesting nobody in the mainstream news is talking about it where instead everybody is pretending like nothing is happening at all. I'm sure it's nothing to be concerned about, everything is awesome! 8)

Say it with me everybody, "America is invincible, indispensable, and exceptional, there's no risk of total economic collapse here!" :lol:

Meanwhile it looks like China has suspended all trade negotiations with the United States which makes sense as the United States economic Achilles heel has been revealed for all to see. The Chinese are taking full advantage of this unprecedented situation which is to be expected, economic warfare is making a huge comeback. This all looks like one giant economic clusterfuck that is ready to explode any week now. 8)

I'm sure there is no constitutional crisis or conflicting result of free speech here at all, nope, not here in Murica! 8)

It's 12:26 a.m. over here as I make this post. Today is Repocalypse Monday where we see if 500 billion dollars interjected by the Federal Reserve via the REPO markets along with another half trillion dollars next month is enough to stop a run on American banks and giant hedge funds. All eyes are going to be on the United States domestic markets, Jerome Powell, and the Federal Reserve today. Can they stop the credit markets from freezing up today postponing an economic crisis until the spring of 2020, or is the month of Christmas 2019 when they finally lose all control? We will know by 3:00pm eastern standard time today. 8)

Looks like I'm going to be pulling an over-nighter in much anticipation of any possible huge market drops today. :P

Will this become the best Christmas present ever for Zero_Sum? I sure fucking hope so, it would be the best Christmas present of them all in the 32 years of my miserable fucking life. Santa if you're watching this post of mine, make it so. 8)

Current rumors or speculations I'm following: Rumor has it that Citi Bank, J.P. Morgan Chase, and Deutsche Bank are dangerously financially over leveraged at the moment. The slightest volatility or liquidity crisis could destroy all three causing a systematic cascading effect that would go into all sectors of the market. Will the rumors be true? Only one way to find out. 8)

"Daydreams of banks everywhere closing early this year and ATM machines as far as the eye can see malfunctioning or not working at all." [-o<

*Sighs*

Looks like they have postponed a market crash or crisis for next year in 2020 instead. And here I was hoping for a Christmas economic massacre. 8)

Damn, I'm tired of all the waiting. I want my market crash and economic collapse now.

Looks like I might have to wait another year or year and a half. #-o


Santa Claus, you fucking cunt! 8) :P :lol:

I got ripped off again!

Polarization is growing in America and probably the west in general.

https://www.visualcapitalist.com/the-polarization-of-politics-in-america/

This article blames the internet, but I think there's a hell of a lot more to it than that.

Unrelenting wealth stratification + feminism + mass immigration + racial and cultural diversification = polarization.

And this article was published in 2015, polarization has grown exponentially since then.

If this trend, along with other trends compiled here, doesn't reverse itself somehow, it will lead to an inevitable collapse.

There's only so much polarization the west can endure before it comes apart at the seams.

No one knows how long they can keep this Ponzi scheme going but there's a limit.
