E Cross The Aisle

Today I had to deal with further hassles over my credit card blockage. The bank finally got a new corporate card to me this week and then it canceled all payments that had not yet cleared. So this morning I got a notification from the web host for this site which is being restored by the Mass. Endurance Group which owns it that they payment for help with restoring the site was blocked by the idiot bank. So I spend hours verifying that I am me and that I want to stay with bluehost, and all sorts of silly verification demand. I am terrified the blockage may delay the site restoration on which my future business depends. Unfortunately, my local bank branches are both shut which is why the error occurred. The bank also reversed my payments to googleWorkspace. I have not yet succeeded in getting google to take my company's money.

Today's blog is shorter than usual because of the hours spent with the host and the bank to get payment made. Ironically enough I am pretty sure that the bank and the host will both try to charge my company for the kerfuffle.

The odds against another bailout have increased after Treasury Secy. Mnuchin said the Fed would not get treasury funding. This is another act of sabotage by the lame-duck Trump team for the interim. Foreign small caps are a big winner of Republican maneuvers. But the real losers are Republicans who work across the aisle for the good of the country.


*At some point in the last 2 years my holding of Allianz Versicherung ADRs was removed from my account, but the broker never bothered telling me. The new ticker symbol is ALIZY which is for a full share of the German stock, whereas our stake was in a 1/10 version, AZSEY. I will get the notification and owe capital gains taxes. Our reporter Harry Geisel yesterday forwarded a notification that many US state and union pension funds are suing the insurance company for buying the dip in March despite the fund's Mohammed El-Erian warning his readers in the Financial Times not to. The plans want $4 bn. The latest news is that its US fund management arm, Pimco, underpaid and discriminated against women, about which another lawsuit was filed.
