Doc can you do an article about mortgage forebearence?

Looks like 12 months of no mortgage payments.

These airlines are being completely unreasonable. But not much hope from the government or a class action lawsuit: they will get a trivial fine, if at all (a la Equifax).

Well the takeover of Fannie and Freddie Mac in 2008 has been profitable as they are still sending profits back to the US Treasury.

The Fed for GM and Chrysler the took an equity position similar to what will be asked of the airlines – but can’t say that they really thrived or survived without those subsidized 0% loan’s. (Probably coming back near future).

Down side a fully loaded pickup in 2007 was $30-35K is now $85-90K crazy the $5 average lunch of 2007 is nowadays $9-10 (not NYC, etc or airports or $1 menu at FF).

At what cost though? You’ve now continued to inflate the mortgage market by truly creating a government guarantee. GM murdered hundreds of people via their ignition switch disaster and none of those people will get recourse because the liabilities are in “old GM” while the executives continue to receive fat paychecks.

We look at banks and yell “too big to fail” yet the government continues to bailout other companies

This is a capitalistic society only when it comes to letting poor people die. In every other case people survive on dole.

And there is no inflation they say. Yeah no inflation where the idiots live and no one else wants to live.

a fully loaded pickup has a lot more expensive stuff in it than in 2007 … as long as people pretend that they’re buying a common man pickup while picking up all the luxury options, of course they’re going to keep marking it up even more.

Still “profitable” inflation-adjusted? I mean real inflation of course, not the fudged numbers published by the Feds and used by Wall Street.

RE: Staples. Probably for the best. Know several folks locally who’d likely go out to a bunch of stores to stock up on GCs and then drive around some more to liquidate them.

We need to take over the airlines completely and make them into decent companies first.

no need to get no fee MCGC this week nor VCG at Staples with Ink cards. Virus can live on cardboard surface for at least 2 – 3 hours according to experts. Metal and steel counters for much longer. Not worth it. But just wait till this blows over. Then the 2nd problem is liquidating at filthy WM with some disgusting customers. Ill wait.

Nothing wrong with waiting. But, it’s not as contagious as the measles either. Wash your hands well after touching any surface others may have touched. There’s no evidence whatsoever that you can get infected with COVID-19 simply by touching a contaminated surface, unless you then touch your eyes, nose, mouth, food you eat, etc., without washing your hands first. And that isn’t even the primary way the virus is transmitted, according to the CDC.

Yup, it’ll be ‘Welcome to DMV airlines well be with you when we feel like it’.

It be ‘Oh how I miss the go old days of cheap baggage fees and seat selection”.

So you’re happy with the way they operate now, yes?

Ive seen and lived through government owned/heavily regulated airlines….NO THANKS, I’ll walk

Further consolidations from merger’s or takeovers equal less competition. No good answers in this situation –

When Canada DOT is shutting down refunds and complaints.

EU basically same thing with EU261

Likely US DOT will follow, consumer’s will be loser’s no matter what, when the dust ultimately settles. No good answers or solutions.

There is on solution: driving. I’m fine with taking longer, semi local holidays where we end up driving 700-900 miles over 10 days or so. The American west is a huge fascinating region. If the airlines/hotels are being shitty I’m just not going to go along with it
