Find Ed here if you need to buy or sell.

ARE YOU CUTTING BACK ON YOUR CHRISTMAS SPENDING THIS YEAR? This article says that between overspending during the pandemic and higher prices this year some families are going to be cutting back for the Christmas. We have scaled back our spending but mostly because we took our kids and grandkid on a family vacation this year so I feel like we've done our part.

AN EMT GIVES DAMNING TESTIMONY IN THE ELIJAH MCCLAIN TRIAL Two paramedics charged with reckless manslaughter have to explain why one of them gave testimony to police that an EMT who was on the scene blew out of the water yesterday. Alissa Gomez disputed testimony of one of the paramedics who said that Elijah McClain was still fighting police when they arrived. She says she never saw McClain struggle in any way and certainly didn't see him get up and try to walk away, as the paramedic testified. Read more here but these guys may be in big trouble.

REPUBLICANS WORKING TO STOP PENTAGON FUNDED CENSORSHIP This is a fascinating story about how the GOP is trying to ensure that the Pentagon can't contract with companies to do their dirty work of censoring speech.

THE POST OFFICE REFUSES THE AUDITOR SUGGESTIONS FOR MOUNTAIN TOWNS Mountain town postal service is not good because they can't keep people at the pay they are offering in the very expensive communities. An auditor said just that and made the crazy suggestion that the Post Office raise pay in those areas with a sky high cost of living but the Post Office would rather have crappy service so they just said no. I mean, is there any other reason they wouldn't raise pay? Just asking.
