They kind of do with the GT350/GT350R after some Steeda work to the suspension. It is definitely no slouch. The GT500 CFTP will be as well, but most want over 120K to 150k after markups, which most of us here can agree is insane for that car and it weighs over 4000 pounds. The multi hundred thousand dollar to a million ish Ford GT got its ass handed to it by the much chear Vette ZR1 (all of Fords cars did though).

That was a great movie, I just wish they didn't alter history so much in it. But, that's the movies of course.

I watched last night and while I didn't think anyone did particularly spectacular I was surprised to see the MSM saying how well Warren did last night. I guess I just missed that?

I actually thought Bloomberg did OK for as much as the others were coming after him. But according to MSM he got "destroyed".

A surprising statistic, considering the amount of flak he took, was that Bloomberg had the least amount of speaking time.

The most "on point" pundit comment I heard was;

"Bloomberg was like a semi-retired football player coming back to the game mid-season. Everyone else on the field is sharp and ready to go, and he's still in spring training"

That's basically how it looked to me. I think he showed up weak but the other candidates have been working their messages and attacks for almost a year. He's got to catch up very very fast if he's to have a chance.

Yeah, here's the thing, Bloomberg isn't super impressive in person which is tough for a dem nominee due to the "dems fall in love, reps fall in line" maxim.

That said, I thought the Fox News headline shows the Bloomberg power:
"Bloomberg under seige at chaotic debate debut, Warren goes on attack in bid to revive campaign"
Basically the media are afraid of Bloomberg, and for good reason - further, he doesn't have that many (any?) attack vectors when pitted against Trump: Not the billionaire thing, not the NDA thing, etc. On the other hand, Bloomberg opens up massive attack vectors on Trump starting with competent management and temperament. Core media, right wing or not, is going to tread VERY CAREFULLY attacking Bloomberg.

So, in person against other lefties, Bloomberg loses the personality war, but in person and on paper against Trump, I think Bloomberg wins ... and people vote "on paper".

Even Trump will be terrified of crossing bloomberg because, if bloomberg wins Trump's power evaporates and if Bloomberg loses, he eviscerates everyone who opposed him

Bernie should openly ask for Russia's election help - what will Republicans say? That it's wrong?

I'm not a defense expert, but I'm pretty sure national security decisions should be based on facts and the benefit to the nation and not emotional opinions and self-interest; but, like I say, I'm a novice. Just like our new intelligence head.

Hey, wanna see something weird?

Nooo, not my ding-dong silly, something much less weird, but more nerdy ... ok, fine. both less weird AND less nerdy ...

So credit card delinquency rates at the 4,500 smallest banks are skyrocketing compared to the 100 largest banks. You're thinking Well, it turns out that smaller banks can't afford all of the cash back stuff that big banks offer to people with high credit scores, so the smalls go after the sub-prime borrowers:



yeah, the delinquency rates are higher than during the Great Recession, yet this is a great economy and unemployment is at all time lows ...

And then it gets somewhat weirder because I guess credit spreads - how much interest an individual is willing to pay vs (in this case) an equivalent corporation (i.e., junk status) - is also skyrocketing ... basically people are really really willing to get super high interest credit cards, like almost double what they were willing to do a decade ago:



And then there's auto loans at 90+ days delinquent nearing Great Recession levels:



And 60 day+ is exceeding the Great Recession!



So what's it all mean? but it would seem that despite this record economy a significant chunk of people are really doing shitty compared to people like us who appear to be doing pretty good.

About 8 years ago we went to see comedian Brian Regan at a small open air amphitheater at a winery in the Los Gatos foothills (silicon valley). He was in his standard routine rhythm and got to this point where he said, "geez that economy, it's really terrible out there, huh?" Dead silence. So he ad libs, "hey chuckles we're all doing pretty well up here, you might want to check down at the bottom of the mountain!"

Well, it's looking like the economy is really shitty again for people at the bottom of the mountain, and I don't know what it means, but surely nothing good.

Trump also apparently said, "Wall street is doing great!" very, very recently. Well uh DOW just lost 1,000 closing.

Seriously. I was there in October and my toilet was FANTASTIC! It opened and pre-sprayed when you walked up to it, had a zillion auto features while you did your business, then shut and flushed and cleaned itself when you left. At night, it had a night light. It was fucking awesome.

Because our government is full of morons who don't even know the basic facts of COVD-19, here's about the best summary I've seen from a journalist who went to Singapore to work with pandemic professionals who know what the fuck they're doing:
