  1. No, it’s not Trump, or a lot of people. Try to focus. Its Elon Musk, here’s a link: https://www.ndtv.com/world-news/elon-musk-says-twitter-interfered-in-elections-and-failed-in-trust-and-safety-3568103/amp/1
  2. It’s being reported that Elon has said that he’s got the evidence that Twitter has interfered with elections. Anyone else see this? It’s a shocking revelation if true.
  3. Central bank is too powerful. IRS has become too powerful, as has the FBI.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?

      Comparing WWI,WWII and the recessions of the 1980s, 2000, 2008 is like putting COVID in the same category as receiving the news you were contracting AIDS. 

      By the way, the World endured >50 years of Cold War terror and nuclear bomb threats. It never happened.

      For the questions of what I do for my country or my fellow man, well, I volunteer, I do good at work while being ethical doing my profession, I pay taxes, and I also am replying to a handicapped on the Internet at this moment.

      I was not comparing world wars to recessions, that was simply a list of doom events.  Because you said doom doesn’t happen.

      Doom is happening right now in Ukraine, China and Iran.  You ‘do good at work’, eh?  More glibness…

      Sure you do.

      Haven't you noticed that whether I do good or not to my contrymen, life sucks in Ukraine, China and Iran, despite all your best intentions?

      What was the link already between what was I doing for my fellow countrymen and what I was pointing out, already?

  6. 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…

  7. 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.
  8. Oh, because GOOGLE says so? You are so gullible, which is also another group of defective voters that went hard for Obama.
  9. 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."
  10. 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
  11. 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?

  12. 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.
  13. 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.

  15. Not the end of the world, the beginning of a brave new era. Just like the run up to the crash of 2008, the powers that be keep applying band aid solutions that won’t last. They are trying to stave off the inevitable. 2008 came whether they wanted it to or not. To anybody reading this, watch the movie, The Big Short. Christian Bale, Steve Carell and Brad Pitt tell a fascinating tale. And what you are experiencing is the intake of breath before the plunge. We live in exciting times.
  16. Does anyone else feel like they need a new hobby?

      Twitter is a blast for a change. Lefty meltdowns all around and nobody is listening to their demands.

    2. OftenWrong


      Go Elon Musk as twitter grand master and uber-troll.

      I’ve started a new activity that has gotten me outside a lot more.  The weather has cooperated, and the fresh air has been great.  
      Glad to see Twitter’s changes, but getting away from screens and phones is a good idea.

  17. Nothing to see here, eyeball. Less freighter ships coming from China, and Amazon is laying off thousands in the run up to Christmas shopping season. FTX just went bankrupt. Just keep jigging and crab potting, brother...
  18. Why don’t you check into it yourself, don’t you have access to google? It was both. When corporations go bankrupt, assets get seized, including money. So last July, Voyager Digital went bankrupt. 3 Arrows Did as well. Now FTX has failed. Then consider that Bitcoin’s stock was around $68,000 last November and is at 16,671 today. It’s lost 75% of its value. The word is that Ukraine was a big investor in FTX. And FTX was a big donator to Dems in the midterms. And guess where Ukraine got its money from? The US government.
  19. Because people with credit cards and savings accounts are reporting that experience. I could have added that this is in the US, with its much different banking system. But people did have their crypto accounts drained and or locked out. This is a significant event…
  20. Update on the hack. 1 billion disappeared. Banks appear to be on the hook. People like you and me reporting that their CC transactions are being refused and others saying their savings account now says zero. Monday will be interesting.
  21. Since this thread is supposed to be about Bitcoins, etc, I suppose a certain hack theft should be noted. On top of the fact that Bitcoin is now around 16k after falling from a high of over 60k last November. A 75% drop in a year. Anyway, here’s the theft: https://www.coindesk.com/policy/2022/11/12/ftx-ceo-john-ray-confirms-late-night-hack-says-company-is-working-with-law-enforcement/?outputType=amp Crypto exchange FTX’s new CEO, John Ray, took to Twitter Saturday to confirm that FTX, which filed for bankruptcy protection on Friday and its U.S. subsidiary, FTX US, were hacked last night in an attack that drained hundreds of millions of dollars in crypto out of the exchanges’ wallets.
  22. It’s being reported that on Truth Social, Trump copied a truth post from somebody else(“retruthing”) onto his own page.It says that Trump and DeSantis were faking a disagreement in order to observe the reaction of certain Republicans. So Trump is indicating that this is true.
