    There's probably another 10-15% to go.
    No bottom until inflation starts to recede.

    But with that said I'm thinking it's time to start dollar cost averaging back in.

    no receding until there's an acknowledgement of what's actually going on
    we are firmly in a continuing recession

    Not a Californian anymore, but I did get a text two days ago from our old ESPN board friend, FSU.

    You recall BradPepsi? He is a staunch socialist. Great guy but a clear-cut, old school liberal. Yet, he's got no patience with the current Dems.

    He sent me a snapshot of his mail-in ballot ... He marked Brian Dahle for GOV on his ballot. I thought he was effing with me. His text back was "the endless stream of homeless camps has driven me to this" and "the Republican is too conservative to get anything done and he pumped the brakes on crazy too. Rick Caruso should have run for governor instead of Mayor of LA He'd be a much better choice."

    Knowing Brad well, this is akin to me suddenly becoming a Gnat fan. Pretty incredible for the Dems to turn away a lifer Democrat.

    It's not me.
    It's memo.
    Memo working on the million meme army.
    Memo is Guillermo for short.
    He's on YouTube.
    You seen meme the left?
    I think someone threw him some funding.

    Recognize the name, but don't recall anything of his politics.

    Voting "R's" on the state ballot is a waste of blue ink.

    Came aross quite by accident the fact that Vin Scully's home is now up for sale. The site I saw it on had 24 pics of the interiors and pools and tennis courts and garages.
    Idk, but I'd bet no movie star's home even comes close...
    I suppose it's blasphemy and all, but if there ever a home which reflected the absolute antithesis of what I thought
    Vinny's home would be like...this is it. I wouldn't have expected him to live in a hovel or anything, but this is by far the most ostentatious, over- the - top mansion I have ever seen. It was if two billionaires got together and made a palace in LA. It must have a 100 million dollar price tag on it, IDK.
    It is on the TMZ website, and is literally hard to believe. For a country boy like me, anyway.
    I'm not criticizing the Scullys for living in it, people do what they want with their money... just completely shocked.
    It's good ta be da king.

    I think they call that voting with your feet.

    guess you might need to be a little familiar w the Hidden hills area but the layout is pretty amazing imo
    sure Sandra was responsible for the garish interiors but then again most women with money are
    some have incredible talent and others trust designers but more are those kind of strangers to actual taste
    that's a great piece of land in an awesome secluded spot of gated rich folks
    privilege to be there and he was as successful as they come so kudos to Vin

    Attention @TAFNAC & @LAdiablo ...


    I'm not going to be kind here. I recognize my hostile content. I'm a poor example of my faith. I fight hard & dirty when wronged. I've never been the type to sit idly by when insulted. And this is about that. So I'm not gonna be nice here. Prepare for a rant ala Rube. But the difference is I make sense & my beef is fucking legit.

    You gents must not have noticed that in his thousand plus words screeds over the last half year, Rube has overtly libeled my faith at minimum a dozen times. He's fighting like a SDA, which means with the lies & deflections of a schismatic fringe of fractured protestants from the mid 19th century.

    We talked religion back when we met. We agreed to be civil but I know this - Adventists LOATHE Catholics like Nazis loathe Jews. That's fact, not fiction. Catholics don't give much of a fuck about SDA. They aren't in our radar. But they care plenty. They lie and pass out fliers. They are good at that shit.

    And as Diablo said, Rube & I got along famously in our single visit. I get along with folks like that often. Shit .... My boss right now is Southern Baptist. He's also a great man and we never disrespect each other on faith. He doesn't care for most Catholics, but we have an understanding; I don't remind him who founded the church and he doesn't remind me of the Renaissance papacy. We get along great.

    So, Rube starts getting personal with me back last Christmas and into Easter. I've no idea why, but it was clear as day. He takes shot after shot after shot at me in posts. He evaluates my dedication to family and faith and belittles my stance on abortion. He implies and states that the priesthood is a cabal of child molesters. That's his style. Unsubstantiated horseshit.

    So two months ago, I stopped reading his horseshit. It's easy to do. I mean .... I have to scroll five times to get past his nonsense, but I stopped reading it. It's shit. I used to read his rants. I did it out of respect for him. I did. But he got toxic ... Really toxic. I would call him. He never returned my calls. Then he says he had some tech glitch then he doubles down on the attacks. It's ridiculous.

    Yes. I really tried to patch shit up. But he keeps it up so - since he's a mod and can't be blocked - I stopped reading his stuff.

    Then he says no one believes I don't read him. Like he has clue 1 what others believe. More horseshit.

    Well ... I did read that one line lie.

    So I told him what I told him and that's that. It's on the thread on the Padres series. I brought it here so it'll be easier for @irish to lock if he wants.

    Then a few weigh in and I wonder .... Why do I bother? I come here for fellow Dodger griping and like-minded nonsense & silliness. Some of you bastards are hilarious. You make me smile.

    Now ... If I broke a rule ... Ban me. I've been booted from platforms before. I respect rules. So be it. Do your thing. I don't piss & moan.

    Or leave it alone. Or whatthefuckever. But just know this has a backstory. I wouldn't have bothered but then, I was maybe the only person who knew how personal he got over this.

    Incidentally ... Recently BZoo told me to fuck myself ... Now, I respect that. I'm ok with that. His old man wrong thread shit is funny and head shaking & his weepy whiny shit grates, but he can post as he pleases. I'm open to insults. I've heard plenty too. . ..Irish has declared me a cock gobbler plenty. I'm not - a few hundred cocks notwithstanding. I'm just straight.... Sorta. :sobbing:

    Just understand - I share your Dodgerdom here. I share your sick mindsets here. I share your Roberts hate here. I share your Gnat hate here. But I'm done sharing equal time with Rube on theology and culture. He's made it much too clear how little he knows about my faith and how little he cares about fair play. Fuck him.

    Good night for now ... I've got goats to rape.

    i really debated whether to weigh in at all since its a touchy thing and i truly like you both and don't want anyone to leave
    also didn't know you couldn't ignore a mod
    but when it gets personal its every man for themselves i guess and i won't say anything else since its not my place
    it's just we're such a small group here anyway...i just wish i could apologize for both of you, shake hands and make it go away
    there's people in my family i know that hate me and usually the feelings mutual but we try to put a good face on it
    its weird kabuki theater but how else does a group stay together?
    to think i rewrote that 4 times and this is the best i could do
    as imperfect as this site is there's nothing even close anywhere else that i've found and i hope you guys figure it out
