"The NY Times ponders the national debt, which is poised to surpass 100% of GDP"

I blame Donnie-From-Queens!

But, seriously, I recall an email that used to circulate which said something to the effect that fewer books were published in the entire set of Muslim nations (1 billion persons) than in the nation of Spain (10s of millions) each year.
The point was that if you have both genders involved, it can make a big difference.

Similarly, the US has a world leading economy. Think how it would be if the government didn't siphon off so much of it!

It seems Biden is going to meet with St Blake’s (model citizen) father and sister, then with local commies in Kenosha. No public events... just closed photo ops.

This is very poor optics for Biden. Suppose they gave a rally and nobody came? And this has been going on for months now.

And yet if you read Drudge Biden has it in the bag.Every time an Antifa shoots someone it will add 2 points to Trump's percentages.

TK et al.

In the old days, being a poll watcher would help confirm the voter was known and had not voted already. That was a great way for a citizen to help protect the system.

That is so yesterday. Now it is a Federal Case likely to be lost to even require a picture ID to vote. Buses of fake voters are known to be driven from polling place to polling place.

All of those are "Day Of" shenanigans.

But this November, all of those issues might be dwarfed by bags and bags of "found ballots" that had been "lost" by Orange Man's Postmaster General but now are found thanks to dedicated union postal workers, several weeks after all those pesky poll watchers had gone home.

How do we prevent those from being counted in numbers sufficient to flip the outcome?

This year, just like every year, I call the local Republican headquarters, get no answer, and then fill out a form offering to do just about anything and everything. And I'll bet that, just like always, I won't hear anything back.

Old Lurker

"The NY Times ponders the national debt, which is poised to surpass 100% of GDP"

Alarming as that headline is, the figure used for "National Debt" is but one component of legal obligations the government has promised to pay from tax revenues in the future.

There is a reason that old fashioned banks used to look first at some simple ratio, say Mortgage Payment as a percent of 1040 Income, and, should the borrower pass that filter the bank would add up all the borrowers other obligations and compare the grand total to said income.

National Debt:GDP is but the simple first screen.

Hedge fund to close after ‘grave mistake’ in Neiman Marcus bankruptcy

The Infamous Ignatz

--The process is known as “crowding out,” and there is no sign that it is happening now. Interest rates remain low and inflation is muted.--

Oh brother.
Pretty hard to be crowded out when the central bank is intent on using every lever at its disposal to make sure there is a nearly infinite supply of free dollars and never a negative consequence to government fiscal and policy decisions. Suicide is painless, as they say.
The only thing being crowded out are the price mechanism and rational investments.
As to muted inflation, the vision of a skyrocketing stockmarket, real estate values and commodities/precious metals in the face of the biggest worldwide drop in GDP pretty much ever and the utterly unknown way or extent that the world economy might recover should cause anyone with a brain to reconsider the value, usefulness or accuracy of the CPI, PPI or the price deflator.

My willowed question:

Does anyone know what the actual plan is for handling the predicted mail in voting chaos? I see the president tweeting against it, and now AG Barr talked about it on CNN and opposed it. But what are the campaign and Republican party actually going to do? It's my biggest worry about the election...

PS: Thanks for the welcomes. I have been here forever, I just rarely comment!

Old Lurker

Listen to Iggy, folks.

"Crowding Out" can only happen when the amount of cash available to lend is limited. If the Fed simply creates dollars out of thin air then uses it to lend directly to borrowers, then there is no limit to the supply, thus no "Crowding Out".

Back in the OLD DAYS - just yesterday it seems, as the borrowers clamored to borrow the dwindling supply of lendable funds, that supply:demand imbalance would force the price (interest rate) of the scarce commodity higher and higher until equilibrium was reached between supply and demand.

But now insert the Fed and other Central Banks again and have them create a completely artificial low price (interest rate) for their also unlimited quantity of lendable funds...and you have ZIRP.

Et voila. BOTH pesky market realities that prevent unlimited stupid decisions are erased.

And right before your eye $5 Trillion in Fed Debt gets double under GWBush to $10 Trillion, then doubled again under Obama to $20 Trillion, and at the current burn rate if Trump gets another 4.5 years, it doubles again to $40 Trillion (but even if he loses, he added in four years the new debt that took Obama eight years to accomplish.

Imagine that.

Thomas Collins

Re Biden and taxes: If Dems win POTUSey, keep the House and take back the Senate, tax and spend, diversity mandates for corporate boards, reparations legislation, and the rest of the woke crowd's dreams will likely be enacted. States will be bailed out (not only regular budgetary deficits, but also underwater retirement funds). What is not done by legislation will be done by Biden appointed bureaucrats (HUD will go after suburban zoning with a vengeance). Obama Title IX guidance will be due process friendly in comparison with Biden DOE diktats.

But cheer up, there will be one plus. Oligarch Media will stop hectoring us about Woo Floo. Woo Floo will disappear from headlines to facilitate a "Biden led" economic recovery.

One guarantee: Supposed conservatives and classical liberals who turned against Trump because he was too "Donny From Queens" like will be outraged by Dem actions, but won't regret their facilitating a Dem sweep in 2020.

Alison,

My state doesn't have mail-in voting except for absentee.

Hence, I don't know what's going on because every state is different. I DO know that California people are paying attention and sounding the alarm about irregular registration messages in the mail and on line.

The Governor of the State of New York is literally implying that the President should fear for his life if he returns to his former home. This thinly veiled death threat to the President of the United States should scare all of us. It is “end of a nation” type rhetoric.

Good afternoon! Howie Carr just interviewed James O'Keefe. He's been working on voter fraud in New Hampshire. Howie mentioned that Trump lost NH by about 3,000 votes and Ayotte lost the Senate race by less than 1,000. Howie thinks that NH won't have as many problems with the college towns this election. Durham, Hanover, Plymouth and Keene made an impact in 2016.

I think I'm liking this nut Shiva more and more. From Turtleboy.

I KNEW that if Shiva lost there was a 0.00000% chance he’d concede, because Shiva’s crazy, which I find entertaining. And last night he gave one of the most hilarious “concession” speeches of all time, in which he alleged widespread election fraud in “third world Massachusetts,” blamed the corrupt republican and democratic establishments, said that O’Connor couldn’t have won because you don’t see many O’Connor yard signs, brought up anecdotes about people who told him he would win in a landslide, claimed that 200,000 votes for him were shred, and suggested that his supporters grab their guns and keep on fighting (whatever that means).
James D.

And at the extreme, if 'crowding out' is the concern, our Super-Billionaires, such as Jeff Bezos, the $200 Billion Man, are Too Big To Tax! Go ahead - hit Bezos with a $100 billion tax bill. Will that make him cut down on private jets, yachts and mansions? Host fewer parties? Unless his dinner party guests routinely find a deed to a LearJet in their party favor bag, I don't think Bezos could be spending anywhere near what he rakes in.

I know TM knows this, and everyone here knows this, but the majority of Dem voters either don't, or don't care:

Most of that "$100 billion" wealth of Bezos and the other ultrarich is not stored in a real-life version of Scrooge McDuck's money vault. It's the value of their assets, the largest share of which is stock in the companies they own.

Should Amazon for some reason take a massive stock hit, Bezos' wealth would drop by a proportionate amount. And if the government were to decide to tax 50% of his wealth, (1) it would have the same impact, and (2) even if not, who in the private sector would be able to pony up $50 billion to buy the Amazon stock he'd have to liquidate to pay the government?
