matt - deplore me if you must

I think you were thinking of the Finnish sniper, Simo Hayha. He killed over 500 Russians in the Winter War.

Catsmeat

MM, it is so wonderful to have you back at the old stand. I so hope you will be fully rested and restored soon if not now!

It is really nice to see your posts MM.

Matt. Most were killed using a normal rifle, although a Swedish businessman gave him a much better rifle later.

Evergrande’s fire sale continues as founder Hui Ka-yan disposes of corporate and personal assets to avert defaulting on debt

"Hui Ka-yan, founder and chairman of China Evergrande Group, has stepped up the disposal of his corporate and personal assets to help the world’s most indebted developer stave off defaults as the company faces US$366 million of interest payments this year.

That included the Dutch electric motor maker e-Traction, sold last week to Saietta Group based in the UK last week for €2 million (US$2.3 million), a staggering 97 per cent discount on the March 2019 purchase price of 500 million yuan (US$78.4 million)."

That's quite a haircut.

Walmart and Target clash with investors over strategy to keep prices low despite inflation

"Walmart and Target put up strong third-quarter performances this week, beat Wall Street’s expectations and spoke of holiday shoppers already starting to splurge on gifts and gatherings this season. Yet the investor response was swift: A brutal sell-off.

Target shares closed down about 5% Wednesday. Walmart closed down nearly 3% on Tuesday, after its earnings report. Shares continued to drop Wednesday, erasing all its gains year-to-date.

The two sides are at odds on the retailers’ strategy of absorbing some of the rising costs of shipping, labor and materials rather than passing them on to customers with higher prices. Both Walmart CEO Doug McMillon and Target CEO Brian Cornell have drawn a clear line. Their strategy: Keep prices low in a bid for customer loyalty — even if it means a hit to profits."

I think that's a smart move.

Been up since 0230hrs. Another bout of insomnia. Sitting here tired and nodding off from time to time. May have to take an ice cold shower and have another cuppa, black, as usual.

Like Nick Sandmann, I also, saw the media parallels in the KR stories. Reminds me of Wayland Jennings,"Mama Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to Be Cowboys":)

“Then Cleanor the Arcadian, being the eldest of the generals, made answer that they would die sooner than give up their arms. And Proxenus the Theban said: “For my part, Phalinus, I wonder whether the King is asking for our arms on the assumption that he is victorious, or simply as gifts, on the assumption that we are his friends. For if he asks for them as victor, why need he ask for them, instead of coming and taking them? But if he desires to get them by persuasion, let him set forth what the soldiers will receive in case they do him this favour.” In reply to this Phalinus said: “The King believes that he is victor because he has slain Cyrus. For who is there now who is contending against him for his realm? Further, he believes that you also are his because he has you in the middle of his country, enclosed by impassable rivers, and because he can bring against you a multitude of men so great that you could not slay them even if he were to put them in your hands.” Then Theopompus, an Athenian, said: “Phalinus, at this moment, as you see for yourself, we have no other possession save arms and valour. Now if we keep our arms, we imagine that we can make use of our valour also, but if we give them up, that we shall likewise be deprived of our lives. Do not suppose, therefore, that we shall give up to you the only possessions that we have; rather, with these we shall do battle against you for your possessions as well.”—Xenophon, ‘Anabasis’

Q: You didn't write a nine (9), you wrote a one (1), and how is it that you remember so clearly after four (4) years?

A: Because I kept a copy, I have it right here.

Defense: Objection. We can't be expected to accept a photocopy when the court already has the original.

matt - deplore me if you must

all the stuff you see about inflation in the news is driven by rich people flipping their shit because their parasitic assets aren’t doing as well as they’d like and they’re scared that unemployment benefits + stimmy checks + 15 minimum wage + labor shortage is why ~jmt~

Sarah Jeong - New York Times

This now an official propaganda campaign by the Left. They are desperately trying to deflect blame when it lies square on their shoulders.

The idiocy continues to become more and more disassociative. Russia hoax, Ukraine hoax, Covington kids, Kenosha, Trayvon, "hands up, don't shoot", CRT, Border crisis, gas crisis. All lies.
