Competitive skateboarder Taylor Silverman said in a new interview that the 29-year-old transgender competitor who won a recent tournament against girls as young as 10 should not be allowed in the women’s division. Ricci Tres, a transgender woman, captured The Boardr Open after vanquishing second-place finisher Shiloh Catori, 13, of Florida, last weekend.
“I’m not going to go and be easy on them because they’re kids,” the Navy veteran said.
She also downplayed the possibility that she enjoyed any inherent advantages.
Silverman noted that an increasing number of transgender competitors have been entering — and winning — skateboarding events.
“This happened to me on three separate occasions, two of which I placed second,” she said. “There are several skaters doing this in skateboarding.”
A 50-year home loan might sound depressing to some, but perhaps not if the alternative is never being able to buy a property. Long-term fixed-rate mortgages are an emerging financial product that should in theory allow first-time buyers who are currently priced out of the market to get on the housing ladder.
By spreading the repayments over longer – the average for mortgages taken out this year is 29 years – buyers should be able to borrow up to eight times their income, rather than the current average of 3.2 times, say potential providers.
50 years? Those are rookie numbers. Go for 100-year mortgages! The boomers racked up huge budget deficits and exploded the public debt. Might as well add mortgages for the grandchildren. It's not like all that debt will be paid back.

The U.S. Supreme Court has ended constitutional protections for abortion that had been in place nearly 50 years in a decision by its conservative majority to overturn Roe v. Wade. Friday's outcome is expected to lead to abortion bans in roughly half the states.
The decision, unthinkable just a few years ago, was the culmination of decades of efforts by abortion opponents, made possible by an emboldened right side of the court that has been fortified by three appointees of former U.S. President Donald Trump.
Trump definitely deserves credit.

“With the Fed out of policy tools to stimulate economic activity and runaway inflation, all signs currently point to an extended period of stagflation – high unemployment coupled with high inflation – which we haven’t seen in earnest since the 1970s,” said Liam Hunt, Writer and Analyst at GoldIRAGuide.com.

Even with all the fake math, we still got the highest official inflation rate of the last 40 years. That dubious 8% is just for one year. Zoom out a bit and most people have easily seen a 50% increase in food prices since the beginning of 2020. With super-high oil prices, retailers will have to bump up prices even more later this year. November should be fun for the Democrats.

The pain isn't over:
The median family income in the U.S. is $67,500 or $5,600 per month.— Election Wizard 🇺🇸 (@ElectionWiz) June 10, 2022
At the present rate, according to Bloomberg, an average family will pay an extra $5,200 this year due to increased costs.
This is crushing inflation.
Skyrocketing prices are forcing more Canadians to make tough decisions, leaving even middle-class families to choose between buying the food they need and paying their bills.
Yeah, an overall inflation rate of 50% in three years will do that.
Christine Taylor, who lives in southern Ontario, said she's finding it hard to pay all of her family's bills, and she worries about those less fortunate. "This direction is not economically sustainable. It will break people — not only financially, but emotionally and mentally," she said.
Taylor, who has a job in the fuel and energy industry, said she and her husband, who works in home and mobile electronics, bring in a combined annual income of about $85,000. Yet it's not enough to keep up with all of the expenses that come with owning a home and raising two teens.
Annual combined income: $85,000
Income tax: $17,000
House upkeep: $6,000
Utilities, phone, internet: $4,000
Car related bills: $12,000
Income left after all the above expenses: $6,000
That's $6,000 for a family of four. They have to plan for phones, computers, clothes, sports equipment, entertainment, vacation, emergency repairs, etc. on just $6,000 for the entire year. Imagine the stress of losing work hours or getting fired.
Before the 1990s, it was possible for the average family to live a comfortable life on one median salary. But thanks to the insidious central banks that keep printing money, a sharp increase in the number of women in the labor force, and the importation of millions of cheap foreign workers, we've finally reached the point where it is difficult for the average family to live a decent life on two median salaries.

The median household income in my city in Canada is roughly $75,000 (US$60,000). The median price for a detached house in the last quarter was $1.1 million (US$873,000). So, that's 14.6x!
A median apartment goes for $650,000. That "affordable" option gives us 8.6x!

Perhaps, it's a transitory recession!
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen acknowledged Tuesday that she and Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell “could have used a better word” than “transitory” when describing the expected run of inflation in the U.S. economy. She added that she was hopeful it would soon be on the decline.
She told CNN last week that she did not fully understand the impact that unanticipated large shocks and supply bottlenecks would have on the economy.
It's curious that the article doesn't explicitly mention one of the major reasons for high inflation: the easy money policy of the Fed for the past two years. They let the money printer loose. The crypto world exploded with massive returns. The stock market doubled from its crash and grocery stores started increasing prices in a big way in early 2021. These idiots should have started increasing the interest rates a year earlier. Now, that the poor have been crushed and the middle class is getting squeezed, their reply is: COULD HAVE USED A BETTER WORD!
The least these assholes can do is resign.

Three major reasons for high oil prices in America:
- Increase in demand due to the end of lockdowns.
- US domestic supply restrictions.
- Money printer go brrrr.
It would have been absolutely shocking had the price of oil gone to the same level as it was in 2019 (roughly $65). That would have been possible if OPEC had gone totally nuts and pumped huge amounts of oil in the global market. Given the price crash to $20 two years ago, OPEC isn't losing sleep now when oil is hovering around $120.

It's impressive how quickly Disney destroyed Star Wars.
