    Single-use plastic bags are banned in California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawai'i, Maine, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington and in hundreds of individual cities. Markets, drugstores and retailers happily charge their customers between five and 20 cents each for paper bags and for thicker, reusable plastic bags. They will also happily sell you – for as much as $2.95 – reusable bags made of canvas or fabric. Government officials insist the plastic bag bans are all about protecting the environment. In truth, the bans are all about forcing the stores to charge for bags which used to be free. Thus the stores make millions of extra dollars and have to pay taxes on that income – and that is what the plastic bag bans are all about: bringing in more tax revenue for states, counties and cities.

    Between 1843 and 1855, Rowland Hussey Macy opened four dry goods stores in Massachusetts. They all failed. He moved to New York City in 1958 and opened R.H. Macy Dry Goods on Sixth Avenue. It succeeded. There are now 508 Macy's stores – soon to be 503 – in the United States, Guam and Puerto Rico. Shares of Macy's closed today at 17.63, a drop of 0.30 (1.67%).

    Over the past 26 months, Elon Musk's net worth has fallen from $320 billion to $205 billion. Let's have a show of hands: Who feels sorry for him? Only one person? Wow, who is that? Oh, it's you, Elon. Sorry, you don't count.

    In an interview that aired on January 8 on the right-wing platform Lindell TV, Donald Trump said our economy is "fragile" and "running off the fumes" of the Trump administration. He predicted the stock market would crash and hoped it would happen "in the next 12 months" during Biden's Presidency. Well, the stock market is doing quite well, thank you – and today Trump is taking credit for it..

    Trump claims credit for record-high stock market using bogus reasoning
    The former President claimed his polls against Biden are "so good that investors are projecting that I will win, and that will drive the market up."

    Johnson & Johnson had revenue of $85 billion in 2023; Pfizer had revenue of $58.5 billion; AbbVie, maker of Humira, had revenue of $54.3 billion; and Merck had revenue of $53.6 billion. Clearly that is not enough for them.

    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration sets and enforces Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. One of those standards requires the font size on warning indicators to be at least 3.2 millimeters. Elon Musk apparently didn't know that. Shares of Tesla closed today at 181.06, a drop of 6.85 (3.65%).
