Re: 2021 predictions

Another 2021 prediction: Biden's inaugural speech will inspire all with its oratory: " Ask not what the knee-grow can do for his country, ask what your country can do for its knee-grows " followed by an appeal for "reparations now, reparations tomorrow, reparations forever" during thunderous applaus...

2021 predictions

Any predictions about 2021? I predict for 2021 that they're going to extend the whole Latina/Latinx convention to the case of China. Chinese will be referred to as Chinx in 2021 and thereafter. :D Get woke, you racist bigot! It's "Chinx" now! :shock: * Note: I stole the "chinx" idea from a commenter...

Re: Bah Humbug Christmas

Well I like to think that unknowable things can be real - even if fundamentally unknowable. Like I said, I'm open-minded to anything - even the unknowable. I'm not concerned with formulating beliefs about unknowable things though. So supernatural beliefs not known to be false are fine by me, I guess...

Re: Bah Humbug Christmas

You miss the point, Blake. The question is, WHY are there seemingly universal laws? Is there a "who" or "what" mandated them or do they just occur at random? Do you know FOR SURE that "life" and "death" are merely a shift in perception or is life and death a finite sequence of events? An old scifi ...

Re: Bah Humbug Christmas

The speed of light is constant in a vacuum . It slows down in a medium (refractive index). It is constant in all inertial frames of reference though. That's the significance of the constancy. Light faster than its speed in vacuum are postulated as tachyons. The constancy of the speed of light in vac...

Re: Was America ever great ?

I'm not exactly the "average person". I have an abt MA degree in economics. In a sensible monetary system, the money supply would increase per capita e.g. increase the amount of gold. Mining does that quite nicely. The printing press doesn't. Gold is not currency - it is a commodity. Spain's gold d...

Re: Was America ever great ?

In 1932, gold was about $20.00 (20.69) per ounce. It's currently hovering around $1850.00 per ounce. IOW, a dollar in 1932 would buy over 92 times as many goods and services as it will in 2020. Yeah, the Fed is really doing a great job of managing our money. It's all relative. Money divisions are m...

Re: Was America ever great ?

The "Fed" is ostensibly 12 central banks while the reality is just the central banks of Jew York. They create money by loaning it into existence at an interest rate. Since the proceeds of the loan can't equal the amount of debt, there must always be more "loans" that leads to the eventual debasemen...

Re: Was America ever great ?

I have a number of typos above. I meant to say Federer of course, ... etc. Are my posts understandable to you? Are you familiar with the subject? Germany was in debt to the WWI victors and played games to get out of it. And the victors had to work it out to get paid. The USA was the driving force in...
