  1. Lets cheer them on. They are on a right trajectory to catch up! Just need even less funding to Police.
  2. That's why I said, it will be really fun to watch, how tribal people will get in US. And yes, I believe Gates and Buffett are the holders of a lot of land. They've been increasing the size of their holdings for some time. I think I even linked some article a few months back. I've also mentioned increasing food prices and profit opportunities there. Some more conteporary opinion piece. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/bill-gates-and-warren-buffet-should-thank-american-taxpayers-for-their-profitable-farmland-investments-11615382905
  3. https://www.oregonlive.com/opinion/2021/04/editorial-portlands-gun-violence-surge-needs-dedicated-police-team.html
  4. This is funny though. Really, it's like you really want to have two seperate Americas in USA. China and Russia must be rolling laughing out loud. So, which side has more purchasing power and production power and natural resources under control? Will rural areas stop selling food to democrat ran cities? Will truckers stop delivering? Etc. Sounds like some fun times ahead, for everyone else than US residents affected by all this crap.
  5. You can always talk about increasing crime rates in such utopias like Chicago or Portland. Maybe changes in Baltimore? How are other metro areas doing? Trying to catch up to South Africa or Somalia? Or maybe waiting for some Colombian or Mexican life style and sense of security?
  6. https://www.zerohedge.com/covid-19/blue-states-lead-us-covid-resurgence-double-mutant-strains-discovered-california https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-04-05/covid-mutants-multiply-as-scientists-race-to-decode-variations Soon we will get an answer, how successful vaccinations are, when dealing with spreading mutations of the virus.
  7. Guns keep people further from each other than masks?
  8. Yes, there is the key provisions, however, people can be creative what they will consider to fit into these key provisions. It can be a high-speed rail, or it can be patching holes in Chicago, or new tents for homeless in SanFran and an extra truck for a poop patrol (but it will be EV!)
  9. I'm not questioning, that actual investment in infrastructure can bring value, and is needed. I do however question the content of the bill, and how much of it will actually go into infrastructure like roads and rails, power grid, and communication lines like satelites or fiber. NOTE: Heck, you can even add education, health and safety facilities to the list of infrastructure with a positive net result.
  10. Seems there is an ongoing build up of forces near Russian-Ukrainian border. Some think, that it's a result of this decree of Ukrainian president (I have no idea what exactly it's written there) https://www.president.gov.ua/documents/1172021-37533 And there are a couple birds chirping (might be Russian propaganda) , that this decree was created with a push from Biden's admin (tied to financing and arms)
  11. I'd be careful here, as correllation does not equal causation. There might be other factors affecting the drop. We've seen with Sweden, that 'no-masks' had not have some major positive outcome (other than not going into excessive debt)
  12. And you think this is a good idea? If passed (big if, due to proposed tax hikes, and some Dems not liking that) this will most likely throw majority of money into trash, and will just increase debt and devalue dollar even more. Some investments might result in some net positive, but my hunch tells me, the vast majority will go into heavily indebted, failed municipalities like Chicago or SanFran, which will use that cash to cover their unsustainable programs and investments, using the cover of fulfilling the mandate of this project. At the same time, this will prop up t
  13. Technically, housing is an asset, which holds value and usually appreciates in value faster than regular goods, however it should still not outpace inflation more than other asset classes like value stocks or precious metals, otherwise it becomes an investment asset, which is wrong in principle. Also the components for building a house comprise many different cost classes (materials, labor, transport, land, etc.) What should be looked at, in terms of housing inflation is the rate of rent cost increases.
  14. You gotta monitor every info stream and filter out bull**** from facts. Yeah, the blog sounds ridiculous. However, you can't ignore what a portion of populace thinks and what they weight their rationalle on, otherwise you miss out on certain behavioral patterns. (and then get Trump as president for example) This piece though does highlight some items, which seem to be less visible, like crime rates etc. hence a questiion, how visible that is to residents.
  15. Seems overly dramatic, but how does the public safety look in US now? Is it really going more into direction of a Third World country? http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/americas-cities-are-being-turned-into-crime-ridden-war-zones-and-murder-rates-are-way-up-again-in-2021/
  16. Now waiting for the groveling phase in apologies to China. https://www.barrons.com/articles/h-m-pledges-commitment-to-china-after-backlash-over-cotton-decision-51617226350
  17. @Gfted1 @Guard Dog You guys will need a lot more of that sweet dollary-do, to catch up with rising prices. Gas and housing are in a runaway phase? https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/us-home-prices-are-soaring-fastest-pace-7-years
  18. So, the rise of the machines in the street economy? https://www.zerohedge.com/technology/meet-stretch-warehouse-worker-union-buster-boston-dynamics Lets add to that some experimebts with drone deliveries, kiosk based shops and food outlets, burger flipping machines, etc. A lot of simple manual labor will be gone. I wonder what those people, will be doing? Women always have the OnlyFans, Instagram, etc. I guess. Men will be left behind, most likely driving crime rates higher. How to adapt unskilled labor to a new economy, where simple jobs are automated, and those people
  19. This is worrying. https://www.zerohedge.com/covid-19/new-covid-19-waves-sweep-through-asia Also this https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-56517495 And this https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/a-city-in-brazils-amazon-rain-forest-is-a-stark-warning-about-covid-to-the-rest-of-the-world/ These two strains give me a headache, how to approach the topic, and if we are not running head first into some major outbreak. Like we had an earthquake first, and now we will be caught by a tsunami.
  20. It doesn't fit the role, that white catholics could have been opressed, butchered, etc. The narrative is, they are all bad, and are now too conservative. People forget or are ignorant to the fact, that Poland prior to being wiped from the maps and later back in early 20s was one of the most tolerant countries, where jews (largest diaspora in Europe?) , muslims (Tatars) , christians (catholics, orthodox, and portestants to the lesser extent) etc. would live in peace and believed to be part of Poland. It's a shame, that in the years leading to WW2 regular people got convinced th
  21. Well, those investors keep their mouth shut, and make money. I imagine, that you'd quickly find out, that if a head of some large fund would utter such statements, their ability to run money in that region would be severly hampered.
  22. First casualties? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-03-28/h-m-stores-shut-by-chinese-landlords-as-xinjiang-backlash-grows I wonder when is their investors call and how they will explain losing the market.
  23. See heathens? You need to go back to the roots, and live without these modern tools of the devil. Repent sinners, and covid will be no threat to you. https://nypost.com/2021/03/28/amish-group-could-reach-covid-herd-immunity-health-official/
