  1. Central bank is too powerful. IRS has become too powerful, as has the FBI.
  2. https://www.cnbc.com/2022/11/28/blockfi-files-for-bankruptcy-as-ftx-fallout-spreads.html And another one bites the dust. “Distressed crypto firm BlockFi has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey following the implosion of putative acquirer FTX. In the filing, the company indicated that it had more than 100,000 creditors, with liabilities and assets ranging from $1 billion to $10 billion.” Have you ever heard the expression, never let a crisis go to waste? Governments love them and look for the Biden Admin to bring regulations into the crypto currency markets.
  3. Rioting in China.  Rioting in Iran and Brazil.  Major economies headed for deep recession across the globe.  War and threats of nukes in Ukraine.

    Are you paying attention yet?

      "May you live in interesting times" is an old curse. Unpredictable times.

      Humanity's progress is slow, it sometimes takes a step back momentarily, but it surely happens.

      Doom is nigh is not an old curse, but an old saying. It never happens.

      I did a search to verify if this line "May you live in interesting times" is an actual curse after your message above. 

      Guess what? I have been repeating this one a few times now, got it from a "source". 

      False: 

      Despite being so common in English as to be known as the "Chinese curse", the saying is apocryphal, and no actual Chinese source has ever been produced. 

      ---> always good to correct the work. 

      I will stick with uncertain, unpredictable times. 

  4. The more I read this forum I’m reminded of the song, Radio Ga Ga.  Too much whining and b**ching to be of any value…

  5. It's sad to see such naivety expressed. Listen up. Those vaccinations produced in the 60's and 70's actually WORKED AS ADVERTISED. That's how the diseases were eradicated from society. The vaccinations for covid don't work. At all. That's why covid is still making the rounds despite national vaccination rates of over 80-90%, while Smallpox and other diseases are long gone.
  6. Oh, because GOOGLE says so? You are so gullible, which is also another group of defective voters that went hard for Obama.
  7. The amount of propaganda in this thread is breathtaking. It really is true, the very first casualty in any war is the truth. What did Churchill say again about the truth? "In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies."
  8. We seem to be alternating between denial and a shoulder shrug. Someone once told me of a third option: be prepared, not scared. This guy is loading up on liquidity as he has paid off debts. He expects to buy land and assets off of people going bankrupt for pennies on the dollar. Apparently this is how the wealthy think. Anyway, here’s an update on that Swiss bank. They lost another 1.something billion in the last quarter. I guess it’s time to go, cap in hand, to the US Fed or Biden Admin for another hand out. https://www.cnbc.com/2022/11/23/credit-suisse-projects-1point6-billion-fourth-quarter-loss.html https://www.trustnodes.com/2022/10/14/fed-swaps-9-billion-to-swiss-national-bank-bail-out-for-credit-suisse
  9. Sometimes at night I can hear the ice crack
    It sounds like thunder and it rips through my back
    Sometimes in the morning I still hear the sound
    Ice meets metal
    Can't you drive me down?

  10. I just read this, it’s quite a list: Trump is running. Florida completely red. Elon took over Twitter. majority in the Supreme Court. Control of the House. roe v. Wade overturned. republicans win popular vote. Nancy Pelosi fired. Cheer up, we are winning. Can’t get rid of the rot overnight.
  11. Trump staying off of Twitter is an important and strategic move, imho. First, having two social media platforms which are friendly to Trump and Trump supporters is never a bad thing. But by staying off Twitter, it allows for anti Trumpers who are changing their minds, a place that is familiar(Twitter) in which to do so. Some would never join if Trump is there, so brainwashed are they. And the ones that are leaving merely at the decision to reinstate Trump’s Twitter account need to leave anyway to help change the atmosphere on that site. Musk is really doing good things on Twitter.
