Re: Casino-Chip Society

Hmm... Level 0: Gold Coin (piece of Gold stamped in a circle with USA written on it). Physical dollar note (piece of paper with USA written on it). Note this does not define "value". ie if Farmer will only supply food in exchange for rolls of toilet paper, then Gold and dollars have less value than...

Re: The Twitter Files

There is nothing prohibiting US government officials from "leaning" on people or entities. Happens daily, as it does in the corporate world. Whether or not a law is broken is based on how the lean is done. Savvy senior government officials know where that line is and don't cross it...quite a few civ...

Re: The Twitter Files

The two tweets in question were allegations that the voter registration system was owned and operated by "foreign actors", a claim which has yet to be proven, at least at the standard required by the courts. The Fantasy Island series ran for 7 years. Here's to 2023 and the show going off air again....

Jack, I read this article this morning, interrupted only by a planned safe deposit box visit. Thank you for posting. I’m not clear on where t-bills rank, layerwise.

I don’t want Tortoise or Kriegs to think all people who support Ukraine and more specifically the idea of us arming Ukraine as vacuous “Russia bad / Ukraine good” and “I support the current thing” non-thinkers. I mean, if you do believe that, so be it, but it’s not the case. I know the Ukraine gove...

Too much typing for no real purpose. As we agree, let's see what the investigation brings up/finds Yes.

If we are going to move the ball forward in time, let's start talking corruption again...and you may want to read up on his life and times while in power. A little accidental Dioxin poisoning of your opponent in a close election never hurts either.
