  1. Well, you are lucky that all the printed money goes straight to the top. With low velocity of cash movement, you won't experience the hyper inflation, but you can kiss goodbye to your purchasing power of your current retirement plan, when you will actually need it. I'd say invest in actual gold, when it drops to ca 1400-1500 on the current spending spree euphory. Long term, it's the best insurance of a stable relative value, and sometimes you can even cash in. If you have a bunker, buy it physical. Not sure where the VIX index is now, but if it's in 20s-30s I'd safe bet
  2. Depends on the world view, but I agree, some in my view were needless, like the blanket travel ban, or climate accords withdrawal. The 1776 theory though, I'd place in a garbage bin, next to flat earthers and Qans
  3. Next steps make US flag turn to rainbow colors Pay reparations for emotional damages due to US history Put wrong thinkers in the re-education camps. Etc.
  4. @BruceVCsometimes you sound like one of those men, who would trust a stripper whe she says "you are so handsome" or "i love you"
  5. Hah I trust you to be uninformed on certain matters, so I'd rather err on the side of being too cautious
  6. There are regulations, true, but even until recently some big US companies did not adopt PSD2 required 3D secure authenticantion protocol 2.0 for financial transactions with EU cardholders. They relied until the end of 2020 on the 3DSA 1.0 until it got decomissioned, even though that regulation was live from mid 2019. So if they are not working in good faith as early as possible, why would I trust with even more sensitive information?
  7. Democracy elected president of Venezuela, Brasil, Russia, Turkey, etc. Democracy is not really a trust factor here. We already established that you would not want to have Human Rights decided in a democratic process by World's majority of populace. US government has no direct accountability to me as well, so what do they care? Why should I then trust them?
  8. You can't, that's why a lot of very sensitive data sits on EU servers of the cloud operators like AWS and can be only streamed without caching/logging on the US side of the cloud operator.
  9. Hah, I wonder how much truth there is to it. https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/right-cue-biden-who-admits-high-cycle-pcr-tests-produce-massive-covid-false-positives A bit too conspiratory, but I'd not be surprised by some level information manipulations and higher than needed restrictions to kick Trump out. (he can't handle the crisis! Crowd)
  10. @BruceVC Also on the topic of not trusting US government. Why would I trust them? Why should I need to trust them? Why would you not trust Chinese government? Etc. Governments and people in power change, and data records stay. I do not really want to be dependant on the whim of people I do not know, who potentially could do me a lot of harm with misuse of my personal data. What's more, I do not have any direct influence on who is in a foreign to me government.
  11. Oh, they will do that 'legally'. The problem is, I will not like the law, which allows/will allow to do that, same as I would not trust the Chinese private SM company with my private data. I think we had conversation on the differences in data protection regulations between EU and US in the not so far past. Less than 6 months ago maybe? I'd not trust a 'bit' of my data to a US based company, that I do not agree that could be made public. I'm not paranoid about it, but I do know, that if I'm using a Chinese phone and US browser on a US based OS I'm aware that my data could be
  12. I think you might be a bit too naive when it comes to the US side and sharing data. On EU side, I'd agree, that's why you have some headbutting between EU regulators and for example Facebook, which is a US based company where C-suits are working with US admin and agencies. And looking at what's cooking to "combat domestic terrorism" I would not trust any US based data storing company that my private data is safe with them and actually private. EDIT: Also https://www.rt.com/news/513063-silicon-valley-eu-commission-president/
  13. https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2021/01/20/wechat-class-action-lawsuit-us/ So the same should be applicable to any SM platform based off US for any EU citizen?
  14. I think there is too much of the competition on daily basis by politicians and msm anchors.
  15. Well, having a dog would tell people that animals can hump anything.
  16. @BruceVC I didn't say you don't see such interactions, I just said they do not produce any offspring and do not pair bond long term to upbring the offspring. I have quite a few such friends. Yes, I'm inclusive, tolerant and do well in diversified communities too. Even they agree that some of the groups are just nutts and they also agree that there is a hihjer rate of promiscuity and swapping of sex partners and lower rate of long term relationships that could substitute a proper family. They also note that their are nutt-cracks in that community chasing clicks and foll
  17. Have your own kids? No one prevents you from doing that? To be honest, I'd more focus on easier access to invitro and perhaps surogate services overall. Adoption is a bit tricky in general. There are few families that can do it right, and evolutionary it's proven that it's preferable to have parents of both genders. (there is no mammal with same sex reproduction). I'm not saying it's impossible, it's however justified to have even more scrutinity here. I would not prevent it legally though. It should just have clear criteria, propper vetting and explanations for wanna b
  18. CNN already sucking up, Bloomberg alrrady covering that things look worse than we knew with Covid, due to Trump keeping people in the dark (no matter that the Fauci's team hasn't changed one bit) Corporates sucking up, like an Amazon open letter, "what can we do to help our dear beloved leader... tfu... I mean POTUS". Meanwhile vid inciting to voilence and more division sitting without any moderation at Twitter Mixing up regular voters with a really fringe element is very dangerous. Doesn't matter that there are also conservative people that are supporters of a dif
  19. I wanted to make sure, because of this term. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secular_religion Sometimes people think some stance is secular, but they do it in such a vehement way, that in fact they create a religion.
  20. That I can agree with then, so secular would not mean atheistic or ideologically driven? What you describe I'd fit more under experimental science
  21. Well, he definately was at a waist size of an average American
  22. They are scrambling and thinking, what to outrage about now to generate similar traffic. I'm sure they will still go Trump this and that. Meanwhile, keeping to SM censorship and its consequences. https://archive.is/GmCsG#selection-2953.0-2957.246
  23. Both, technically, secular is a type of a religious belief (you believe there is no form of higher being, but cannot prove it or disprove it)
  24. So, if a company says, identify with this symbol and wear it or you will be fired, is that a breach in human rights? I guess, perhaps this is not the best topic to derail to various philisophical questions and lets just go back to bashing one anothers political viewes or what's presented in various media spaces.
  25. What is deemed human rights can change and it did change in the past. Would you be in favor of some group defining them or majority of human population deciding what they are?
