This week, the Senate votes on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which would increase the Pentagon’s budget by $37 billion to a whopping $778 billion for the fiscal year 2022. Last month, Senator Bernie Sanders criticized his colleagues for supporting such a bloated military budget, given the deficit and national debt, as well as the lack of political will to expand Medicare, guarantee paid family leave, and address the climate crisis. He then introduced an amendment to the bill that would address the pressing humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip and the seemingly intractable conflict.
In September, Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid proposed a plan for development in Gaza in exchange for Hamas’s commitment to long-term calm. If Hamas committed to these terms, Lapid said, “the electricity system will be repaired, gas will be connected, a water desalination plant will be built, significant improvements to the healthcare system and a rebuilding of housing and transport infrastructure will take place.” The proposal might have gone as hoped, but renewed violence between Israel and Hamas flared just hours after the minister’s remarks.
Amid multiple all-out wars, ongoing skirmishes, and a 14-year blockade, the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip is now so severe that about 50 percent of children suffer from water-related infections and 12 percent of deaths of young children in Gaza are linked to intestinal infections from contaminated water.
Gaza never should have gotten to this point. After the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas, the Gaza Reconstruction Mechanism (GRM) was implemented to expedite reconstruction, address Israeli security concerns, provide assurance to donors, create jobs in Gaza, and achieve progress toward lifting the blockade and securing a long-term durable peace. While it may have been conceived in good faith, upon implementation, the GRM only served to institutionalize Israel’s blockade and total control.
Well, that was fun. I guess thinking that we might buy soon was very silly and naïve of us in today’s market. Haha! What was I thinking?!
House #1 is still really beautiful and totally would be worth it to buy right away, if there wasn’t a convenience store with a giant parking lot right in front of it, and even with tables and chairs right at the very end of the property line, which is pretty much the front yard. Yeah, now I see why nobody has bought it yet. That makes my disappointment all the more real because the house had everything I could wish for:
1. An old phone from the Edwardian era that is still connected to the wall (!!). So old that there would be no way to dial out, as it had no numbers.
2. A huge, slightly spooky attic that could very well be turned into something useful. Storage? A Master suite? I don’t know, but it’s awesome and has potential.
3. A covered porch, gorgeous hardwood floors and a stained glass window, plus a very well maintained clawfoot tub.
3. A huge backyard- an acre worth of pretty woods towards the back of the property. Why did they not build more towards the back?
But no, I don’t want to have to deal with crazy traffic from the market just to get out of my house every morning, and I don’t want a view of the neighbors. I don’t really want to see anyone, to be honest.
House #2 is also really wonderful and is sitting on a very pretty piece of property. It’s on a quiet country road, but tucked away near the pond. The problem is that it has even more work that needs to be done than originally anticipated, and the realtor insisted on showing up as well. He didn’t want me to look inside one of the boarded up fireplaces, nor pull down something that a curtain on the ceiling is hiding. Also, the house was NOT built in 1800. More like 1770 or 1780. The entire bottom is made of fieldstone and....yeah. I’ve researched NE capes enough to know that it’s one of the very early ones.
House #3 We couldn’t even look at. The realtor said that he was going to get offers from flippers, and he didn’t want to deal with us unless we had CASH. I told him he had a construction loan and he pretty much scoffed at us because he doesn’t think we can get anyone to work on it anytime soon. Thanks dude for your vote of confidence.

Kinda crazy how it's our fault when the Invisible Hand of Capitalism starts working in our favor.
Like, labor shortages are a moral problem because people just are Lazy™️ and Don't Want To Work™️ when we're really forcing businesses to compete for scarce a resource (just like we do daily).
Want more employees? Pay more. Offer better/more benefits. Fix your workplace culture. Do literally anything but blame people who can barely afford to put food on the table even when they are working.
2022 what is trending.
I'm just saying it's best to be safe.
I walked to several businesses asking for money orders. Yes I'm, walking because I'm still broke down and busted.
Majority of stores don't have money orders, in fact paper checks, paper green money or coins.
The United States is (probably) having a paper coin money shortage. That's probably why, I'm broke down and busted and walking.
But seriously people please wake up.
You better start stock piling your green paper dollars and your coins. That is why there are so many debit cards.
People wake up. Wake up. Wake up.
Washing machines are going to be replaced with credit card machines.
Is it better not using coins in public laundry mates. I think it is more efficient to use a credit card for payment instead of coins.
Most banks/stores are having a serious coin shortage and soon a paper green shortage maybe because of the paper shortage.
How long will all this last, before it all just falls down? Who knows, but start stock piling your beanie weenies can goods, and your paper money because paper may become very rare. Everybody is stretching stuff. When you go in stores and one side of the store lights is on and one side of the store lights is off that's a sign you're going out of business. I'm just saying, far as presents and Christmas if you celebrate it, I wouldn't even presents, I would have a dinner set or party have a good time and eat and drink.
Keep your money in your pocket because the ride the United States might be ready to go on you gonna need every penny.
There are stores but there may not be paper money and coins. And with covid still going on if I celebrate Christmas and I don't I wouldn't even buy presents as long as covid is going on keep your money in your pocket, and settle for a small dinner if that.
Well what ever is going on it's best just to be safe than sorry. Start stock piling your coins and paper money.
Be happy that you have good health.
Wall Street won't be making any money this year because of covid.
Who cares what I'm doing for Christmas and New Year. But I 'll settle for slippers a nice dinner and bottle of wine. No probably won't get slippers and of the things in my wishlist. When get money I always buy food. Cheers to a healthy New Year.
I hope people is not stressing of giving gifts. This is covid/money shortage and everything else that can go wrong.
I'm broke but I'm alive.
I'm just happy to be alive.
Happy New Year
Man I want a steam deck. The thought of being able to pick up and play modded fallout or sykrim is very sexy

But no one wants to work anymore, right?

Christmas tree buyers face short supply, high prices
Even Christmas trees are not immune to the pandemic-induced shortages and inflation ravaging the economy. Extreme weather and supply chain disruptions have reduced the supply of both real and artificial trees this season. Industry executives said US shoppers should expect to have fewer choices and pay 30% more for both types this Christmas. “It’s a double whammy – weather and supply chain…

American supply chains face a dire threat from China’s water shortages
There is no shortage of reasons why your holiday shipment may not arrive on time. COVID-19 turmoil, port congestion, semiconductor shortages, truck capacity expansion — the list is growing. Water, or water scarcity in China, may be a factor pushing the US supply chain to the limit. Water is an important invisible input for all economic activities. Beyond agriculture, water is important for the…
