Apple hit a market cap of $1 trillion on Thursday — and became the first publicly traded U.S. company to reach this milestone. Blanche, here’s a quiz for you. How many zeros are in 1 trillion? If you guessed 12 you are correct.
This is a number so big that it rivals the value of many small, third world countries. Let’s just say the Apple products, such as iPhones, MACbooks and iPads are selling for a reason.
Aside from the fact that people like the way they look, they work well. We are staunch Apple users for one reason: the service. If we have an issue with any of our Apple products, we trot down to the nearest Apple Store after making an appointment with the Genius Bar online. Presto! our problems are solved in less than 30 minutes at the most. Ya just can’t beat that.
Let’s see what Montreal’s mayor Valerie Plante is going to do now. The Mount Royal cemetery is not interested in opening a dialogue about cyclists flying through the cemetery with the city. She of course, doesn’t want to look like her decision to shut down the east west road on Mount Royal was wrong, which it was.
There are no cyclists, no walkers, no cars, nobody on the mountain. It’s a ghost town missing only the rolling tumbleweed. Is that what she wanted? To take away a gorgeous tourist attraction? If so, she succeeded beyond her wildest dreams. And the cyclists? Well, they obviously went to the cemetery to train and now that’s out. So, madame mayor, it appears that you ticked off everyone in your irrational and arrogant hatred of anyone using a car.
Obama lovers who wish he could have remained president forever may be a bit confused these days. Their darling ex-president endorsed no less than 81 Democratic candidates running for office in November 2018. In case you are missing some of that old uber-sweet Obama talk, here’s a snippet from his endorsement: Today I’m proud to endorse such a wide and impressive array of Democratic candidates – leaders as diverse, patriotic, and big-hearted as the America they’re running to represent:
One minute Blanche. He left off the most important little darling of them all – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from New York. She has quickly become the all-star pitch-hitter for the Democratic Party, being flown all over the country, often with Zaidy Bernie (Sanders) to rev up the troops. It appears however, that not everyone is in her corner. Quite the snub for someone who thinks she’s the best thing since sliced bread. Ouch.
Not that we told you so, but we told you so.
It turns out that Canada, Trudeau, Freeland and all those who are negotiating the new NAFTA deal tried valiantly to be at the talks with Mexico this week. They were not only unsuccessful, it was an embarrassment. Attempts by Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland to get a seat at the table in Washington Thursday were either ignored, or spurned outright by the office of U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Robert Lighthizer.
Yet another source said the request to be at the meeting was made in a low-key fashion “so as not to spark a diplomatic incident” and was followed by “a retreat to diplomatic silence.”
Is Justin still on vacation? Is someone able to get him a memo to get rid of Freeland? Or is he going to keep this feud going to try to keep his numbers falsely inflated? In the end, he will be the big loser in this game of chicken. He’s no match for Trump.
We did some further digging in those 3D guns, speaking directly to a gun-owner. It seems that a) the printers to make them are not that expensive and b) the guns very often either misfire, don’t work at all or can fire one or two shots at best. He said if someone wants a gun, for about $30 one can find weapons on the street, very easily.
Said gun-owner also revealed that far more people than we ever thought are packing a gun. Older, grandfatherly men who one would never suspect. Interesting…
We finally found, what we think, will sink the Democrats this fall. They call themselves Democratic Socialists. And what do they believe? That the ultimate purpose of government is social control of the means of production. As their founding member said, “You know, we don’t just want to improve capitalism, we ultimately want to get rid of it.” Really?
May we remind these people that socialism did not work in mother Russia nor any other communist country. We have one question to ask these people: When was the last time they saw someone trying to get into a socialist country illegally? Seems everyone is running the other way.
And that ladies and gentleman is why Trump will most likely win in 2020. The division within the democrat party is going to destroy what is left of them.
It appears that Omarosa wants to get back at Trump with her tell-all book. We did a bit of digging into this lovely woman who used to work in the White House and found out that no one really knew what she was doing other than collecting the largest salary possible of $179,000.
Our guess is that she was very pretty, had nice long legs, was thin and Trump liked looking at her. Not that we want to sound catty – meow – but she was fired and didn’t like that one bit. She thinks she is now getting her revenge but we have a sneaking suspicion that in the next short while, something will surface about this woman that will render her into a screaming fit.
Or…Trump will just choose to ignore her and swat her away like a fly, giving her fifteen minutes of fame and bob’s your uncle. This will be an interesting show to watch play out.
Good Shabbos, We’ll talk…
