Interesting reading. Lots of redactions of course, including what appears to be the identities of people high up in the Israeli government or close to it who appear to have intervened on Trumps behalf to deal with a potential October surprise. Refer to page 5, 12 to 16. This redacted individual even wrangled for a meeting with then candidate Trump. I wonder what Trump had to do in return for such help.

Foreign interference I believe it’s called.

Now going by this document alone, the evidence of direct contact between any Russian government officials or agents and Stone, Assange or Corsi, or Trump seems absent, with only conjecture from FBI and US Intelligence that it seems likely to be going on. No surprise the Russia Today would be happy to put Assange on their broadcasts since Hillary had been directly threatening Russia during her time in government and in her election campaigns. This doesn’t mean Russia were not doing more to influence the election, but from that document, the evidence suggests interference was coming from somewhere else.

As I live abroad, I’ll have to get used to the fact that if someone close to me passes I won’t be there for any funeral. My mother in law (a mother to my wife and granny to my kids) is in Spain right now. She’s fended off cancer twice in the last decade and is in her 80’s now. God forbid anything happens to her there. Horrible reality to live with.

If and it’s a big IF, if this virus takes a hold for over a year, a recession is the least of our worries.

I think the economy and pandemic are inseparable at the minute. If we don’t have some sort of functioning world economy we won’t get through this. If one spirals out of control so will the other.

I don’t think socialism is necessarily a solution given it can be as easily corrupted as capitalism. There needs to be another way that harnesses aspects of both. Either or isn’t going to work.

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/15/federal-reserve-cuts-rates-to-zero-and-launches-massive-700-billion-quantitative-easing-program.html

Key piece of information here. Many Banks in America are no longer required to hold anything in reserve to lend money. Fractional reserve banking has effectively ended for these banks. They can lend out money they simply don’t have in the hope the federal reserve can give it to them. This obviously is being done so that banks can get money out to people as quickly as they can during the Coronavirus shut down. However the fed has been doing overnight lending to banks back in September 2019 which suggests that banks were already having trouble retaining reserves months before this crisis emerged. It would seem that this crisis is going to be used to fundamentally change the financial system in some way because I can easily see this leading to hyper inflation and complete systemic failure.

I’m planning on practicing music a bit more and try teach my kids how to play guitar or piano.

I’m slightly more optimistic than Graham. We’ve improved every game and we’re not full strength. While it is disappointing not to have any points given where we’ve been for so long I’m not too disheartened. Of course I want us to be better but it’s going to take a while to turn things round given all that we’re up against.

As for this weekend, I think we will be close enough with Dublin. It won’t be as one sided as the Leinster Final although we are unlikely to have the firepower to win we won’t get pulled asunder either.

Ultimately I’d be happier if the games were called off though. It’s just not worth putting peoples health at risk and when you look at what measures they’re taking in Italy now, the games are a trivial matter.

Stock markets tanking, perhaps because of the C-virus but On top of that we also have another round of QE coming.

Are we perhaps on the brink of a massive recession. Have we kicked that can as far as fiscally possible. I know bitcoin folks are always hammering away at fiat currencies and the federal reserve but they have a point.

I usually go off chocolate but I’ve not given any thought this year. Perhaps I’ll start it a bit late.

Very disappointing result after beating them last year with a similar squad of players. Hard to keep the faith when underage results are so poor despite all the effort and resources pouring in.

 Shane Walsh sat on the stands to save him for tomorrow’s game.
A surprise that Meath did so poorly today when you consider they won Leinster U17 2017 and 2018.

Yeah, I suppose if you take Walsh and Cian McBride out of that U17 team it doesn’t help but the difference in the sides shouldn’t have been so great. Apparently it was over as a contest after 10mins.

That reminds me, Meath should have sold the Pairc Tailteann site for housing back in the boom years. We’d easily have paid for a new facility with a bit to spare.

Meath (SF v Kerry):
Marcus Brennan;

Robin Clarke, Conor McGill, David Toner;
Ronan Ryan, Brian Conlon, Donal Keogan;

Bryan Menton, Ronan Jones;

James McEntee, Bryan McMahon, Ethan Devine;
Cillian O'Sullivan, Thomas O'Reilly, Shane Walsh.

Same as last game. That lads who were responsible for conceding needless goals two weeks in a row are still starting suggest we still have problems with the panel. Hard to see our forwards having enough cutting edge to cause a shock but hopefully we can at least rattle Kerry for a while. Shane Walsh is lining out for the U20’s today as well. Costello and O’Conner too but they’ll be in the bench tomorrow it seems.
