ABOUT THAT SHIP COLLISION

July 24th, 2017

Remember, there was a collision off Japan between a freighter and a US Navy destroyer, in clear weather. A slow moving freighter and a fighting ship that has a wide variety of very advanced detection and communication equipment collided under extremely suspicious circumstances.

The Japanese have now concluded their investigation of the freighter involved and have reached NO CONCLUSION as to why this happened, and have released the ship and it’s crew. The US Navy has never offered even a hint as to how this could possibly have happened, and if they ever do, I guarantee it will be a lie.

There’s only one possible way that a monster container ship, 3 times the size of that destroyer, and the destroyer could run into each other at night, and that would be if all the electronics aboard the destroyer were disabled.

The freighter changed course that put it on a collision path with the destroyer shortly before they collided, so that was a deliberate act. The ship belongs to the Japanese even tho it’s registered under a different flag. It’s cargo manifest misrepresented the actual cargo. That’s a deliberate act.

This was a test. A test of some new technology that has an EMP effect, by our Navy. It was within the last year that a Russian jet flew over one of our Navy ships and totally disabled the electronics on that ship, so it looks like we’ve figured out how to do this ourselves now. The difference is that some of our sailors got killed in testing this, and I find that appalling.

BANNED ON BREITBART

July 23rd, 2017

Yes, it’s TRUE. I’ve been BANNED ON BREITBART’S BLOG. I’m too honest, I speak the truth about so-called trans-sexuals, homosexuals and religion, though I’m pretty sure it was my statements about that flaming queen Milo that did it.

Breitbart’s been steadily leaning Leftward in spite of appearances. They don’t print regular news stories, instead it’s all political or politically oriented, and they’ve become more Pro-Christian oriented, so my comments about unprovable religious superstitions and fat homosexual priests don’t make them happy.

Well, I’ve been saying that Breitbart news has become more and more just a Clickbait website, and it has, so it’s no loss, and the truth is that it’s as jammed up with Liberal Soros-type trolls as Fox News is. At least Fox prints actual news along with the political events of the day. Breitbart flatly does not.

Fortunately, there’s forums on the Internet like this one, Newsbleat, where people can speak their minds. The only comments I ever delete are the total bullshit ones usually left by some illegal alien claiming that “Mexican” is a race, tho I have expunged a few Muslim rants as well. It doesn’t matter what you say here or even how much you cuss, as long as you’re being honest and not pushing some lying agenda.

Freedom of Speech is practiced here and honesty matters. Say anything you like, except for what you know to be a lie. If you want to tell a pack of lies, write a book and get it published or become a politician.

ALLYING WITH INDIA

July 18th, 2017

India has tacitly been our ally for decades. One way to tell who our government trusts the most is to see what countries our corporations outsource with, and nothing is more familiar on the telephone when we seek technical assistance on some product we bought, than that New Delhi accent.

Here’s some interesting figures: Our trade with India in 2016 was about $68 billion, with a deficit of $24 billion, meaning we bought $24 billion more from them than they did from us. This benefits India. Us, not so much.
We’re India’s Second-Largest trade partner, with China their first largest at a few $billion more.

Now look at this:
List of the largest trading partners of the United States
Rank Country/District Exports and Imports in $Billions
China — $579 billion traded with a $347 billion deficit.
Canada — $545 billion traded with a $11 billion deficit.
Mexico — $525 billion traded with a $63 billion deficit.
Japan — $196 billion traded with a $69 billion deficit.
Germany — $164 billion traded with a $65 billion deficit
E U in total, about $800 billion in trade with a $147 billion deficit.

You see how little trade India does compared to other nations? Now, what if India did as much trade with us as China does now, while China’s trade with us went down to the little bit that India’s currently doing?

Our trade with China is costing us far more than we make. We have a deficit with almost every nation, but China is far and away the worst for us and they’re our worst enemy.

So think what would happen if India became more prosperous, if we started moving our manufacturing there and taking it out of China. India is rapidly backing away from China’s aggressiveness and turning more to the United States.

Look for new trade deals with India while sanctions are increased on trade with China. This is going to happen. While Russia sits on every neighboring fence, trying to play everyone against each other, India is going to come much more over to our side.

Everyone goes where the money is. For India, that’s not China, it’s us and the EU nations. India has gained virtually nothing for it’s past cooperation with China except less belligerence, it hasn’t really profited by it. Neither has it profited from having Russia as a neighbor and in fact both of them prefer to see India stay poor and be less of a potential threat. But with China loading up Pakistan, India’s enemy, with lots of armament and helping them improve their missile capability, India has to get serious about who they team up with as China continues to become more aggressive.

We are India’s best bet, with the EU coming in second. So watch for joint military and naval exercises with them and possibly our NATO allies, and probably soon. I expect to see us selling large amounts of high technology armament to them, jet planes and missiles, soon, and oboy, will China ever howl about that. Things are heating up.

How long we continue to remain friends with Pakistan and Turkey is in doubt as well. We were allies with Italy until they joined up with Hitler’s Nazis. Things change. As for Russia, they’ve been cozying up with China quite a bit too and they need to stop playing around and take a stand one way or another or they may end up getting nuked by both sides.

WAR WITH CHINA

July 15th, 2017

Included in our military spending budget for 2018 is more money for more Navy ships, soldiers and aircraft, and big increases in missiles and missile technology. This is a direct reaction to China’s recent push to expand it’s own navy. China is dramatically reducing the size of it’s army, since the reality is that the only nations they could attack with it are Russia and India, and both of those nations wouldn’t hesitate to retaliate with nuclear weapons and wipe out their army in a flash and probably take a lot of China’s cities along with them.

So the Chinese are building up their long-range capabilities instead, with one goal, to attack the United States. This is why they’ve been building military bases on top of the sunken coral reefs in the China Sea, so they can attack and block all sea traffic through that area. We know it and the world knows it.

This is why President Trump is trying to win over the Russians and why the Globalists here are fighting his efforts and vilifying Russia. They want China to take over, they don’t want Russia siding with us against China, and the Russians may not be very interested in doing that anyway. But the problem for the Russians is that if they side with China, they’ll be China’s next victims after we go down, and they know it. Staying neutral ultimately isn’t an option.

Logically then, all the anti-Russia noise, from the Republican side at least, is just diversionary while we work together to plan our mutual defense. Meanwhile the Russians continue the usual “provocations” of flying aircraft and sailing naval vessels near our territory, and we keep doing likewise with them, to keep up the appearance that we’re not allied against China. I don’t know if that’s actually keeping the Chinese guessing or not, but it’s worth the try.

I know how this is going to go, though. We’re not going to have a choice, we have to attack North Korea before they launch a nuke at us, so then China can “defend it’s ally” and attack us in a way that we can match, exceed or ignore. This is why Pres. Trump is trying so hard to force China to stop. North Korea is a slave state of China, it’s actions are China’s actions and it’s attack on us will be an attack on us by China. The whole world knows this.

But the Chinese refuse to stop, they want war with us because they want to conquer us. If China can take down the United States, they can then go on to take over and enslave the world, or at least that’s their plan. We’re either going to have to forcefully shut down North Korea, or we’re going to have to directly confront China, and time is rapidly running out.

Even if Russia and India do come in on our side, it won’t be in a hurry. They’re going to sit and watch, and see how we do, first, before they consider getting involved, and will only help us if it becomes clear that we need help. Personally I doubt if any nation will side with us until they also feel threatened by China, with the possible exception of Australia and maybe not even them.

The world needs to wake up in a hurry though. The Islamist efforts to take over are going to seem like mosquito attacks once the Chinese start moving in.

This pack of worthless scum just voted AGAINST an amendment which would have ended former President Barack Obama’s 2016 policy of funding “gender-reassignment” surgery for soldiers who want to live as members of the opposite sex.

The amendment to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act was offered by Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R, Mo.). It would have prohibited the use of taxpayer dollars to pay for the non-military medical task of converting healthy soldiers into “transgender” soldiers who face lifelong dependence on hormones and surgery. Now we taxpayer will be paying out nearly $4 BILLION over the next 10 years to create useless soldiers.

This is the legacy of homosexual Barack Obama and his tranny “wife”. Thanks a lot, you assholes, and you bet WE WILL REMEMBER YOU.

ROBOSEX

July 14th, 2017

Long ago I figured that the biggest advances that would come in the field of human-like robots would be sex robots first, and the general sort of helper robots would follow as a sort of afterthought, in civilian life. In the military, there won’t be really good soldier robots until the sex robots are fully developed and accepted in society first, because the sexbot technology will pave the way for all the rest. Sex is where the money is.

The most advanced sex robots are being made in Japan, where people live packed in like sardines in a can and interest in sex with live partners is fading, to the point that their population is declining. A robot that doesn’t need to share living space and never eats, and is always nice and obedient, perfectly fulfills the Japanese male’s dream of the ideal woman.

Already, sexbots have mobile faces. The eyes move and blink, the faces change expression, the mouths move correctly during speech. The bodies are mobile to a degree and can perform sexually. The only major thing they don’t do yet is stand and walk on their own.

Actual child sex is outlawed in Japan but their comic books and anime are filled with child sex stories, and one Japanese robot manufacturer actually makes child sex dolls. They aren’t robots but no doubt that’s coming, and already some people in Canada are calling for them to be outlawed. The case will undoubtedly be made that allowing pedophiles to have sex with the dolls to satisfy their fantasies will prevent many actual attacks on children, so we have that mess to look forward to in our court systems some day.

A whole new pile of laws is going to be fought over and ultimately enacted here and in Europe over not just sex robots but all robots as this technology progresses and robots become more a part of our daily lives. For instance, at what point is a robot so autonomous that no human is responsible for it’s behavior? Do you imprison a robot that commits a crime, or just turn it off? Can some jobs be prohibited to keep robots from taking jobs from humans? Will robots have to be marked in some way so people don’t mistake them for real humans? What about manufacturer liability? Owner liability? What about insurance? Licensing and registration?

There’s going to be such a big bureaucracy that gets created over robots that a whole new field of specialty lawyers will arise to deal with the volumes of new laws that will be written. And just when you thought that the Internet was the ultimate new career opportunity.

RETURNING THE HANDSHAKE

July 14th, 2017

President Donald Trump complimented “the French president’s wife’s appearance Thursday as he toured a famous Paris landmark.

Video footage posted on the French government’s official Facebook page showed Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron and their wives chatting after their tour of the museums at Les Invalides. As they were saying their good-byes, Trump turned to Brigitte Macron and gestured toward her body.

“You know, you’re in such good shape,” Trump said,” before repeating that commment to her husband. “Beautiful,” he added.

It just so happens that Trump’s wife, Melania, is as many years younger than him, as Macron’s wife Brigitte is OLDER. Brigitte was Macron’s high school teacher!

By saying she’s in good shape he was pointing out her age. She’s 64 years old, 24 years older than Macron. Emmanuel Macron just got his abusive handshake shoved right back up his ass, in public, and there’s nothing he can do about it.

That’s one thing about Pres. Trump, he doesn’t forget, he just waits until the opportunity presents itself. Laughing my ass off over this.

NEW YORK TREASON

July 12th, 2017

Every once in a while I leave a comment on the New York Times blog, and make sure the little box is checked that says I will be notified if my comment is posted. This is because they moderate the blog comments and it’s a funny thing, but I’ve never gotten an email saying that my comment was posted.

Another funny thing is that every single comment that is posted is full of hate and bitterness at Pres. Trump or someone that he approves of. There’s not one single favorable comment about him.

Considering that this is a news outlet that should be open to all points of view, I find that to be very odd, very biased, and honestly, very treasonous. In fact, if I were President I’d have them all arrested and tried for treason, and executed by firing squad right after a very brief trial in which they would all be found guilty by my order.

That bunch of Communists should be damned glad that Donald Trump is President instead of me. They really should.

BURNED OUT

July 11th, 2017

Today the news is all about Donald Trump Jr. having met with a Russian attorney before the election, the story being that he was expecting some information on Hitlery Clinton that would benefit his father in the election.

There’s nothing wrong with that. Politicians are always looking for dirt on each other, for an advantage in the polls.

But… the Democrats and Globalists are trying to make this look sinister, saying that it’s “treason” and that Donald Jr. “colluded” with Russia to change the election results.

These people just refuse to quit. Their hypocrisy is boundless. Personally, for me, I’d be happy to join some militia and start shooting the ring leaders in the defense of our nation, because I’m totally burned out on reading this crap. Fox News even has a long article today accusing Donald Jr. of “colluding”. It’s enough to make me stop reading any of this so-called “news” because it’s all utter bullshit and offends my intelligence.

I quit reading Breitbart because it’s all click bait now, with inflammatory headlines and negative articles all designed to inspire rage and outrage. Who the hell needs that?

FLORIDAZON? FLORINDIA?

July 10th, 2017

Time to rename the state of Florida to Floridazon or some other jungle-ish, Amazon-sounding name. First there’s the snakes, the boa constrictors and pythons that are running loose everywhere that pet owners have released into the wild and that have mated and multiplied, and now lots of Rhesus monkeys are spreading out after escaping from a tourist compound, and are starting to threaten people.

Now they need to import lions to eat the monkeys, and then have big game safaris to shoot the lions because the lions will thrive and multiply by eating monkeys. Maybe tigers would be better, tigers are endangered and lions aren’t, and tigers eat monkeys too. I wonder how well elephants would do in the Florida swamps? They could hold tiger hunts from the backs of elephants like the rajahs of India used to do, once the tiger population grew large enough, and the money from selling hunts could be used to pay the survivors of tiger attacks – if there are any.

What Florida really needs to complete this picture is a nice variety of colorful parrots. They have a few types now, but more would be good. If you’re going to totally destroy the natural ecology of an entire state and probably 6 or 7 states before these critters stop spreading out, you might as well go all the way.

WORLD’S OLDEST HIPPOPOTAMUS

July 10th, 2017

“Manila (AFP) – Bertha, believed to be the world’s oldest hippopotamus, has died at age 65, the Manila zoo said Monday, having beaten the typical lifespan for the mostly herbivorous mammals by decades.”

I think they’re mistaken. Rosie O’Donnell is only 55.

HAPPY SUNNY MEXICO

July 10th, 2017

I see that the Zetas drug cartel is being blamed for the murders in Mexico of an entire family including the four little children, because the father was suspected of being involved somehow in a rival drug gang’s attack on a Zetas gang member.

The story goes on to say that the murder rate in Mexico is now at it’s highest ever. Since the start of this year there’s been about 10,000 murders over drugs and related to drug gangs in Mexico. That doesn’t count all the murders those people commit over here.

This is one more excellent reason why we need The Wall and lots of armed guards patrolling that wall. Many Mexicans live just barely a notch above the cockroaches that live with them by the millions, in grungy little shacks, and it’s no wonder they want to get away from there and come here, but they bring their ignorance, cockroaches, drugs and diseases with them and aren’t comfortable living like we do. What they know is poverty, and after they come here they continue to live in poverty. Worse, they try to make everyone around them live in poverty too, so it all looks like Mexico and they can be comfortable in familiar surroundings.

We can’t save these people from themselves and by trying, we only make our own lives worse. We’ve moved manufacturing plants to Mexico for the cheaper labor, and at the same time given them jobs far better than what they had. We have a brisk trade with Mexico, we buy huge quantities of farm produce from them and other products, Mexico used to be our Number One tourist destination too, before all the killing and other crimes got so bad. We’ve been pretty good neighbors but nothing has worked, it’s all gotten worse and we can’t keep letting these people cross our border anymore because they’re making it worse for us, too.

ALL EYES ON KOREA. AGAIN.

July 8th, 2017

During the Korean War, we were shooting down Russian Mig jet fighter planes and battling Chinese soldiers on the ground. We were fighting both Russia and China, and the poor Korean civilians were doing a lot of the dying.

The war never officially ended, it was only put on “Pause”, and now we may have to fight it again.

Personally, I’d much rather see us go to war with China. We’ll have to someday anyway, and if we had India and Russia on our side, China would lose for sure. At the least, we will have to attack North Korea and sure as hell the Chinese will pour in soldiers and aid.

That won’t be all, either. They’ll use our involvement there to start fights with others, probably the Philippines, Japan, and other smaller countries and island nations less able to defend themselves. The big question is who ends up siding with who. Now that Russia isn’t Communist anymore, would they still fight alongside the Chinese? Would they stay neutral? Would India seize this golden opportunity to help crush China? China is no friend of India anymore than she is to the rest of her neighbors.

One thing is for sure, our old allies that we saved from the Germans in World Wars One and Two will never help us, and let’s remember that we freed China from the Japanese as well, and see now how they reward us for that. Little Taiwan is where all the grateful Chinese fled to when their government turned Communist. Out of all of China, they alone stayed our allies and the Chinese Mainland Communists have never stopped pushing for possession of Taiwan.

Right now, Pres. Trump is rebuilding old alliances that have been going to rot, and while the NATO nations are Number One, he’s also working to make Russia an ally. He may succeed, and nothing would shake China more than to have Russia join the NATO alliance. Hell, it would shake the world. Keep in mind that during WWII, all those Eastern Europe nations were either overrun by the Germans or part of the Soviet Union and didn’t finally become free of the Communists until Pres. Reagan broke the USSR.

So they were never our allies. They weren’t anyone’s allies. They were just little conquered nations who hated their conquerors. They love us still in Eastern Europe. Even so, those long years of being Soviet satellites left it’s mark and there’s a lot of connection between them and the Balkan nations and Russia, emotionally and historically.

It’s that, that makes me think that Russia could be swayed to leave the last vestiges of Communism and dreams of world domination behind and join NATO, and be our new partner. It could happen. Talk about shifting the balance of power in the world!!!

THOUGHTS ON KOREA

July 6th, 2017

Something I’ve never gotten any understanding on, is why we fought the Russians and Chinese in North Korea. Why should we care about that little tiny, relatively speaking, peninsula of land that at the time was a dirt-poor nation? Plainly, China was out to make Korea part of China and wanted the lower half along with the already-Communist upper half, but we went over there and spent a huge fortune and many American lives to prevent this from happening, and there never was a final victory, only a truce with a Demilitarized Zone, or DMZ, separating the two halves.

Now today we have a radical North Korea, still sponsored and encouraged by China, threatening us with a nuclear attack, and the South Korean government persistently refusing to help us stop the North.

Why won’t they help? The word I have is that the current S. Korean president is a Communist himself in some ways, because he’s a Liberal, and to me, being a Liberal is the very next thing to being a Communist. In any case, he wants us to continue talking to the North instead of doing something about them, while they continue to be more and more a danger to us.

Back when we were embroiled in the Korean War, Syngman Rhee was the South’s president and a staunch anti-communist, and Communism was the big bad political bogeyman at that time, so I suppose we were obligated to support him. But things have changed over the decades, and it looks like time to stop being concerned about the desires of the South Korean government and become more concerned about our own needs instead.

The North threatens to launch tens of thousands of missiles into the South if we attack them, and I’m sure they will unless we can do one Big Time Shock And Awe attack and wipe out the bulk of their artillery and rockets right off before destroying their ICBM and nuclear development.

The real enemy is China in all this. North Korea couldn’t exist without Chinese support, and it’s China that we really need to deal with, and harshly, if we want an end to the Kim regime and it’s threat.

ABOUT US AND RUSSIA…

July 6th, 2017

I do love saying “I told you so” to those who keep calling Russia our enemy. In truth, all nations are our enemies, just as they’re all the enemies of each other, because we all compete against each other. We compete in sports arenas, economically and often also on battlefields, all trying to gain an advantageous position.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says the U.S. is ready to work with Russia to stabilize war-torn Syria.

In a statement released Wednesday, Tillerson said those efforts could include establishing no fly zones, and coordinated delivery of humanitarian aid. He also said if the two countries work to establish stability, it will lay a foundation for Syria’s political future.

President Trump is expected to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Germany, and the Syrian conflict will be discussed between the two leaders.

While our Liberal media continues to spout lies about “Russian hacking” and “Election interference”, and doing all it can to stir up trouble between the Russians and us, Pres. Trump hasn’t said a single word against Russia or Vlad Putin. Just the opposite, he’s steadfastly maintained that we can have a good working relationship with Putin’s Russia, and if I’m to make a choice who to trust, it certainly isn’t the Liberal media.

I’ve said before that Pres. Trump is secretly working with Putin on the Syria problem, that the “gas attack” and our missile response were propaganda to shut the MSM up. I think the phony actions and phony responses will continue until it becomes plain that we and Russia are working side by side to achieve the same goals, and the media no longer has an excuse to badmouth Russia without making themselves look bad.

There will always be competition between the Russians and us. In some ways we’ll always be enemies, but we’ve been acting like good friends for decades now, with our space programs and the Space Station. We and the Russians have taken turns flying each other’s people up to that orbiting island for a long time. When we shut down our aging space shuttles, we rode with the Russians. Even with SpaceX now taking our people up, we still take up supplies for the Russians.

If we can join together in something as technical and Classified as our space programs, we can sure as hell get along economically as well as dealing with Islamic terrorism.

CHINA DREAMS

July 3rd, 2017

UNITED NATIONS – China’s U.N. ambassador warned Monday that further escalation of already high tensions with North Korea risks getting out of control, “and the consequences would be disastrous.”

Are you laughing yet? You will be…

Liu Jieyi expressed hope the US will be submissive and support China’s three-part plan: Go back to negotiating, negotiating and negotiating, and that the most important thing “is “suspension for suspension,” where North Korea halts nuclear and missile testing and the United States and South Korea stop military exercises.”

Right. North Korea stops their illegal nuclear and missile testing, which is against the treaty they made, in exchange for us and the South Koreans not conducting any more legal military exercises to prepare for attack from North Korea. Yeah, sure, uh huh. And the N. Koreans will keep their word. Right.

What the Chinese are really saying here is that they have no intention of reining in their rabid N. Korean dog and want us to stop preparing to rein them in ourselves, because in reality, the Chinese do consider North Korea to belong to them but refuse to admit it. That way they pretend to not be responsible for what their puppet does.

Trump and Company aren’t buying it and are steadily increasing the pressure on China to squash N. Korea for real. At the same time, Trump’s bringing back more and more of our manufacturing from China, making us less reliant on them for our goods. This is alarming hell out of China because they’ve become heavily reliant on us for our money. One of the biggest reasons for us to get along well with Russia is so we can start trading with them for their rare earths and other materials, instead of China.

China is going to have to face the fact that they either control North Korea or we will. If we do, it will be bloody and by force, with a lot of destruction and hordes of North Koreans flooding over their border with China and Russia to escape the carnage. This is what the Chinese are mostly complaining about, but the truth is that they don’t much care if their population is increased by a few million. They just really don’t want to lose the big pain in the ass they created against South Korea and us. They have plans for N. Korea to nuke us while they claim innocence, and we have plans to prevent that.

If the Chinese won’t quell N. Korea, we will. Period.

KEEPING IT JEWISH

July 3rd, 2017

There are tens of thousands of non-Jewish Africans in Israel now who have migrated there to escape poverty and almost all of them are there illegally.
The Israelis have been trying to find a reasonably humane way to deal with all these illegal aliens for at least a decade now, and may have finally hit on the answer.

Of course, their solution doesn’t make the illegals happy but it just may work. What they’ve done is pass a law requiring 20% of the wages of all those who have jobs, to be put into a fund that they can only access when they leave Israel, and their employers have to add an amount equal to 16% of their wages to that.

In other words, this makes it harder for them to pay their living expenses if they’re working and harder to find a job if they’re not, because employers won’t want to hire people they have to pay an extra 16% to. Annnnd, …. employers will start looking for local citizens, such as young high school graduates who are also Jewish citizens, to fill those jobs instead because the employers won’t have to pay the extra 16% for them.

We need to do something like that to get rid of the illegal aliens we have here, because eventually all those Africans WILL leave Israel. Every month, 36% of their monthly wage is added to a fund. In 3 months, there is over a month’s wages sitting in that fund. At the end of a year, there’s 4 months wages. After 3 years, they could leave Israel and have an entire year’s wages in their pocket to start life over again somewhere else. That’s going to be hard to resist.

LITTLE HITLER?

July 1st, 2017

The newly elected French president, Emmanuel Macron, the same person who engaged in that bizarrely aggressive and obnoxious handshake with Pres. Trump, where Macron did his best to crush Pres. Trumps hand in as hard a grip as he could muster, and still crows about doing it, is rapidly gathering the reins of power to himself in a steady takeover of the French National Assembly.

Their National Assembly is their Congress, essentially. It’s the people who vote on new laws, and Macron is looking to dominate the National Assembly. That’s exactly what Adolf Hitler did to consolidate his power before launching his share of the Second World War.

It takes a person with an unbalanced mind to try to crush the hand of the American President, for no other reason than as an idiotic and infantile act of egomania, of childish one-upmanship. Emmanuel Macron wants to be the new leader of Europe and I predict that he’s going to end up causing a huge amount of trouble in his desire for power.

Once people like him get in the position he’s in now, they never stop. Emmanuel Macron would be Dictator Of The Universe if he could, and he’s going to push for as much as he can get. Watch out for this guy, he’s trouble.

WHEN A DOLLAR WAS A DOLLAR

June 29th, 2017

Inflation, the devaluing of money, has been with us at least since the early Roman times. Back then, to raise more money for government purposes, Rome started making clad coins, with copper on the inside and a thin layer of silver on the outside, reducing the size of silver coins and reducing the silver content of the alloy in coins. This worked in the short term until it became known that the coins had been lessened in value, and then their trade value decreased accordingly.

Here in the USA, the value of a paper dollar was tied to the price of gold and silver, and paper money was called gold notes and silver notes. Our coins were all 90% silver and of a standard size. Then in 1964 our government quietly called in all the silver coins and in 1965 issued clad coins in their place that have no silver at all. We’d already been taken off the gold standard back in the 1930’s.

So now we have paper money whose only value is the credit rating our government has in the world market combined with the amount of dollars in circulation, and that number is steadily rising, resulting in a steady decrease in the value of dollars. To illustrate this, in 1957 the average wage in the U.S. was about $5000 a year. Today, 60 years later, the average wage is $57,000 a year. That makes a 1957 dollar worth the same as $11.40 today in wages. It would be nice if that were true, because the average car then cost $800 new and the average new car now costs $35,000, a person could feed themselves for a week for $10 in groceries and now it costs $300 a month for the same quality of food.

A nice new home in a good neighborhood was about $5000 or less. The same exact home today sells for $350,000 and up.

So wages are no longer a measure of inflation, because the truth is that in 60 years our dollar has LOST almost ALL of it’s value. A dollar today is worth around 1.7 cents compared to 60 years ago. Even so, the dollar is still the world’s primary money, because the US is the most stable and prosperous nation on Earth. People TRUST the dollar.

Good for them. I don’t trust it worth a crap, I’ve been watching it degrade for too many years and I know how unstable it actually is. Inflation makes a lot of rich people richer in the short term but it makes us all poorer in the long term.
