Wall Street Wednesday

1a

Asian stock markets bounced on Wednesday as China’s response to a virus outbreak tempered fears of a global pandemic, although Shanghai shares slipped amid worries about a hit to domestic demand and tourism.

Fears of contagion, particularly as millions travel for Lunar New Year festivities, has pushed stocks from record peaks.

The outbreak has revived memories of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) epidemic in 2002-03, a coronavirus outbreak that killed nearly 800 people and hurt world travel.

Yet this time, China’s response and candor – in contrast to the initial cover-up of the SARS outbreak – has tempered some of the gravest fears about the possible global fallout.

China’s National Health Commission said on Wednesday there were 440 cases of the new virus, with nine deaths so far. Measures are now in place to minimize public gatherings in the most-affected regions.

    Now, Joe Biden is beating up on Bernie.

    The powerful elite are desperate. Unfortunately, they’ll undoubtedly prevail in manipulating the process to ensure they get the toady, neoliberal Dem candidate THEY WANT!

    And, we’re supposed to be so friggin’ scared of Russian interference!

    I want to know what is wrong with Tom Steyer anyway?
    After all he was the first person to make impeachment hay and seems to be quite qualified to be Prez. I would kick Joe, Bernie, Amy, and Liz to the curb as a bunch of petty BS’rs. Leave in Mayor Pete and Tom, both have what it takes without all the campaign bickering that could sink the election. People will not vote for mud-slinging geezers, except trump.

    Tom Perez needs to be shown the door as the most ineffective DNC Chairman ever. When he shoved Keith Ellison out of the way so he could be #1, I knew we were doomed, a total jerk ensuring a Dem never gets to be Prez. UGH!

    If Hajji posted Tim’s picture, I missed it. I’m very regimented in how I watch the Facebook news feed, scrolling to the bottom where I left off the night before, so I won’t miss anything. Yet, I miss things.

    Yes, they were cousins and the opposite in politics.

    Pete came over this afternoon. We watched a movie then he had to leave for the Secretary of State to register a pickup truck, get a plate for it. Brian bought a truck for his employee to use this past summer, the guy got in an accident. Brian has a good friend that has a business and works on vehicles, he had the truck hauled over there and found another truck to match it somewhere and his friend transferred engines and fixed everything up, making the truck road-worthy and looking beautiful. Jill and Brian gave the truck to Pete for Christmas! It was a complete surprise to him, of course.

    The truck was finally ready to be picked up today and the 4 of us jumped in Brian’s truck and went to Howell to get it. I rode home w/ Pete. He is tickled pink, wished he could get a truck for years now. He always has something that needs hauling and always has to borrow his DJ boss’s trucks. Now he has his own. That was so damn nice of Brian and Jill, it’s almost hard to believe. They paid $8,000 for the truck, it got in the accident, it cost them more money to fix it and they just gave it to Pete! I raised my kids right, lol. Yeah, I’ll take the credit. 🙂

    I can’t watch the “trial.” I’ll turn it on here and there during the day and evening, after a few minutes I turn it off, unless pundits are talking.

    It’s the same things I’ve lived and breathed during the House hearings. They’re reiterating all that was said then, and when it’s Trump’s lawyers turn to talk, all they do is complain and put the Dems down, just like the R’s did during the House hearings. I can’t stand it! Wake me up when it’s over and Trump is still the king.
