    You would rather be the Fresh Prince than Uncle Phil. Your only skills are demolition and breeding. You’re the ungrateful twelve-year-old in America’s family who doesn’t understand why he should respect his elders. You would rather rob your neighbor than starve, because when YOU have a problem, you will make sure it becomes everyone else’s problem too. You’ve created a reputation that you expect others to ignore. You’re the absolute bottom of the racial totem pole. You harm the harmless.

    And you wonder why we hate you.

    Which ever big move ends up happening societally, we’re going to witness a hard reset of this system because the currency will die.
    I expect that the US will lose it’s position as the world leader with the destruction of the dollar.
    I believe this is why they’ve been trying so hard to turn EU into a centrally led US 2.0 so they can transfer power there when things shift.
    Only other option is China and I don’t think the world leaders want to allow them to take over, it’ll be interesting to see who comes out on top.

    Worst part is that when things go ape, people will attack each other than simply going after the banking sector and politicians who caused this shit to begin with.
    But if by some miracle people were able to go after those crappy elements, the entire world could start from a point where the US was in the 30-50s.
    It’ll be a make it or break it situation for people

    How have you dealt with the your parents shortcomings or failures? I’ve been thinking about this a lot and I have been working towards complete forgiveness. The main reason being that my parents cared about me so much but just went about showing that love in the wrong way. In addition to this, they raised me in a country that was not their native one so that must have made things more difficult. Lastly, parents raise their kids with a hint (or a dose) of what they grew up with and if they were raised wrong, that might bleed into the next generation. A lot of our boomer parents did not grow up in the internet age so information wasn’t readily available to help them with raising their kids although who knows how much better things would have been if they did grow up in the information age as there’s so much disinformation out there now.

    How have you approached this? Are you working towards forgiving or will you carry the hate in your heart until you die?

    How can any elevated official have a straight face and tell you inflation is just transitory?

    We have access to (((their))) data and well they’ve been lying to us since day 1. You CANNOT print that much money and say with a straight face inflation is just “transitory”.

    Ignore (((their))) lies and understand what is coming.

    There is no possible way the Fed will be able to stop any of this inflation without aggressive hiking up interest rates. But that will kill the markets and halt economic growth so they won’t do it.

        This debt carousel will collapse this decade, it’s simply not sustainable. I give it 5 years absolute max.
        Even at current inflation levels were looking at price growth of ~15% a year for goods and that’s not even taking into account of the sneaky consumer inflation that corporations do by shrinking product sizes.
        And this is only accelerating, next year it’s not going to be 15% but 30% or who knows how much.
        On top of the money printing there’s the supply chain issues too, which is only going to get way worse when the spare parts really run out and global cargo industry grinds to a halt.
        Trucks are already getting completely fooked because of the lack of parts. It’s like a compounding mess that only gets worse.

        Also when they’re eventually forced to raise the rates, that’s going to lead to every single boomer and other debt laden person losing their assets to the banking sector.
        We’re going to witness the largest wealth transfer from the bottom to the top in this decade.
        My country went through this exact kind of bank depression in the 90s and it was insane when it happened.
        Everyone lost everything.

        I have bought myself recently all kinds of tools and things I didn’t have, because these things are going to cost double or triple in no time.

    I think it’s time bayonets are encouraged for all carrying and self defense.

    Lefties are always talking about how scary muh Assault Rifle 15 is. The rifle is so scary and that’s what makes it deadly. It should be scarier. It should be terrifying.

    Kyle Rittenhouse was open carrying a rifle yet that didn’t stop multiple people from assaulting him and winding up dead. Obviously those morons didn’t understand the danger of a rifle. Obviously the rifle isn’t scary enough because it wasn’t scary enough to get it through the thick skulls of those morons not to attack someone with a rifle. Those idiots completely ignored the rifle he was carrying and attacked him and wound up dead.

    I think this demonstrates the need for bayonets in situations like this. Despite a rifle being way deadlier than a knife, morons cannot properly comprehend how dangerous it is. They will happily chase after someone with a gun with zero self preservation because they don’t understand how deadly a gun is. They are motivated to throw a skateboard at someone with a gun because they don’t understand that guns are dangerous and so they get shot.

    However, I believe if you stuck a big pointy knife at the end of it, even the absolute dumbest single digit morons could understand that “knife sharp, me no like that”. Even the slimiest hook-nosed manlet will think twice about grabbing someone’s gun if it has a big pointy knife at the end of it that he would cut himself on if he tried to grab it. I believe that a bayonet would be better visually perceived as dangerous.

    Obviously a rifle on its own is not enough. I think that knives provide an easier to understand visual threat of danger and so would better deter someone from engaging in a violent altercation and would therefore be safer for everyone.

    China Evergrande Group, the second largest real estate developer in China, defaulted on interest payments on two bonds back in September, with the 30-day grace period still ending in October. However, shortly before the end of the grace period, the public was misled by rumors about alleged interest payments. The international media also took the rumors for granted. Only the DMSA – Deutsche Marktscreening Agentur (German Market Screening Agency) already recognized the default at that time and proved in a study that the bankruptcy of Evergrande, the world’s most indebted corporation, could ultimately lead to a “Great Reset”, i.e. the final meltdown of the global financial system.

    Cardiologist tells the pureblood “I won’t cry at your funeral,” dead two weeks after booster

    A 52-year-old cardiologist, hospital director and hockey coach is dead after spending much of 2021 belittling the non-vaxxed.

    Dr. Lutchmedial received his third injection, aka “booster,” on October 24. He attempted a play on words to celebrate his third shot, calling it “Vax Shot 3: Electric Flu-Galoo.” It is an apparent reference to the 1984 film “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo.” However, there is no third Breakin’ movie. Dr. Lutchmedial said he expected to feel sick after the shot because “my immune system is ramped up!”

    His last Facebook post was published on November 7 at 3:10 p.m. local time. It was about visiting friends and family (his kids) at the University of Guelph in Ontario. Dr. Lutchmedial “died in his sleep” on November 8, according to CBC News.

        The sad reality is that a significant percentage of our population is suffering from what I believe is a significant mental illness. Unfortunately, public knowledge regarding negative mental health implications resulting from modern societal norms and government subversive actions are very limited.
        .
        I do not believe there is any way to explain the absolute dismissal and non acknowledgement of the very legitimate concerns people have raised regarding experimental medical treatments and their long term health implications without mental Illness contributing. These individuals are dismissive of knowledge our entire culture was keenly aware of only several years ago. The entire leftist infrastructure suddenly outlawing any criticism of the major pharmaceutical companies and going as far as to celebrate these companies is insane. Combine that with the rank and file liberals who have spent decades at war with these same companies yet are now their strongest and most vocal activists. I have friends from college that I spent tens to hundreds of hours discussing the unbelievably unethical, often time grossly illegal, actions common within the pharmaceutical industry who are now openly supportive of Pfizer. These are intelligent, educated individuals who previously held strong oppositional, even hostile views towards companies within the industry. I cannot understand such a reversal in opinion and dismissal of personal knowledge without mental illness being a large factor.

    Prudent advice for the abysmal state of the global financial system. Over leveraged economy essentially means there are far fewer resources that exist than can be paid back. It’s pretty obvious that what to unfold is going to be bigger than “my portfolio number went up, while yours went down”. These are massive stores of wealth that are invalid in that they can never be paid back. So someone is holding toxic paper, and these losses are going to be transferred to the holders of dollars.

    Silver was never popular as currency. It was only used as “money” from the brief period of 6000BC until 1971, when we made the sensible decision to start valuing scraps of paper that the Federal Reserve can print more of whenever they want.

    Silver is not valuable. It is only a vital component of all electronics, medical tools, and industrial machinery.

    Silver is not “rare”, just because more of it is consumed annually than is mined annually. The USGS prediction that crustal silver will be completely mined out by 2025 will not affect the scarcity or value of silver.

    Silver is not durable. It will not be able to withstand the eventual expansion of the Sun that will envelop and annihilate the Earth.

    As you can see, there is no reason why anyone would want to have silver. If anyone in this thread has been foolish enough to buy silver, I will help you out by purchasing all your silver at spot price.

    When Trump was in office, there was something to rebel against.
    It reminds me of the first BLM wave during Obama’s presidency and it was not uncommon to hear people call it “All Lives Matter.” It wasn’t until Trump’s that it became a “racist phrase.”

    Now that Biden is in office, what is there to be mad against? Racism is over now that he is in office. BLM was strong because it was to rebel against Trump because he “incited racism.” Now we are under a “united” Biden admin and more people are worrying about gas prices, inflated housing costs, sky rocketing cost of living, etc…

    In a diary of US President Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley, which has now been confirmed as authentic by the New York Times and the FBI, Ashley Biden describes drug abuse and affairs as well as “inappropriate” showers with her father Joe. She also asks herself the question “Have I been abused?” and replies with “I think so.”

      In a statement Friday, Project Veritas CEO James O’Keefe — known for producing “gotcha”-style undercover videos involving Democratic politicians, activists and the media — said his group had been approached by people claiming they had the Biden daughter’s diary, but they decided not to publish it.

      “Late last year, we were approached by tipsters claiming they had a copy of Ashley Biden’s diary” and “the tipsters indicated that they were negotiating with a different media outlet for the payment of monies for the diary,” O’Keefe said. “At the end of the day, we made the ethical decision that because, in part, we could not determine if the diary was real, if the diary in fact belonged to Ashley Biden, or if the contents of the diary occurred, we could not publish the diary and any part thereof.”

      He said they turned the diary over to law enforcement after an attorney for Ashley Biden refused to accept or authenticate it.

          It is supposed to already be. These are from the Constitution.

          What happened during 2020, were acts of domestic terrorism and terrorist insurrection. Knowing this, then, Pelosi,Schumer, Waters,Ocasio-Cortez,Omar,Ted Wheeler(Mayor of Portland),Jenny Durkan (Mayor of Seattle), and many more Democrat Representatives, Senators, Governors, and Mayors are guilty for inciting riots, encouraging terrorist insurrection, murder(deaths during),looting, arson, rape, and assault. Plus have broken their oaths of office AND ran afoul of the 14 Amendment particularly Section 3.

          Some of these same people, and others blocked attempts to stop the summer terrorist insurrections and riots, calling for charges against them(terrorist insurrectionists) to be dismissed, or, never pressed at all.

          Instead we saw YOUR party leaders aiding these scofflaws. Summer insurrectionists were bailed out of jail by a fund created for that purpose, by Kamala Harris, another criminal act as it gave aid to the insurrectionists(AGAIN, against the 14 Amendment particularly Section 3).

    According to a USA Today-Suffolk University poll, Biden’s approval rating is currently at 38 percent, lower than another Suffolk University/USA TODAY poll taken since he took office and only just hovering above the president’s all-time lows of 37 percent which were recorded by two other surveys in mid-October.

    The survey results look even worse for Harris, who is expected to be Biden’s heir apparent if he decides not to run again in 2024. The survey shows that Harris’ approval rating currently stands at 28 percent, with more than half of registered voters (51 percent) saying they disapprove of the job she is doing.

        In a diary of US President Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley, which has now been confirmed as authentic by the New York Times and the FBI, Ashley Biden describes drug abuse and affairs as well as “inappropriate” showers with her father Joe. She also asks herself the question “Have I been abused?” and replies with “I think so.”

          War is imperfect; in fact, it is calamitous for all involved. IT would have been impossible to remove all the equipment spread all over that vast wasteland that calls itself a country. That goes for the greedy Americans that stayed behind to make $ on the war and its aftermath. They knew Trump set a deadline to end the war. They stayed behind anyway even as Biden showed the guts to actually implement what Donald started. Don’t weep for these Capitalists, as profiteering sometimes comes with a heavy price.

      To get your staff fully trained, you’ll probably have to have someone from hubby’s company there to test and give them certificates of completion. You know, a “maintenance” contract. Then, you get it pushed out to the students, don’t forget the certificates for them.

    “The first people a dictator puts in jail after a coup, are the writers, teachers and librarians. Why? Because these people are dangerous. They have enough vocabulary to recognize injustice and speak out loudly about it. Let us go on being dangerous people.” Madeleine L’Engle

    This is what the Republicans are trying to do with their loud and violent opposition to anything that comes from the left. Their recent attacks on school boards and teachers are a prime example. The first people trump will go after once he announces his plan to run again for President are these same people. What will he do with them if he is re-elected? Probably the same things Erdogan is doing in Turkey, Duterte in the Philippines, Kim Jong Un in North Korea and his buddy in Russia, Vladimir Putin have all done. Dictators can’t continue when there is a free and uninhibited press.

    An NBC News poll released Sunday found Biden’s approval rating sliding from 53% in April to 42% in October, and for the first time, NBC News polling found a majority — 54% — disapprove of the job Biden’s doing. The poll also found 71% of Americans believe the U.S. is headed in the wrong direction, including 93% of Republicans, 70% of independents and 48% of Democrats.

      Not to mention, slaves were never paid millions of dollars to play a game. Colin Kraperstick just can’t let go of his 10 minutes of fame. 4th string player, never would have amounted to anything if he had continued to play. Just a hypocritical loser. Shame on Netflix for giving him another soapbox.

    The Washington Examiner reported that after failing to tax Bezos, Democrats look to tax LeBron

    Democrats have turned away from taxing billionaires and are now looking to tax multimillionaires as a means of paying for their $1.75 trillion climate and social spending package.

    Last week, the major tax proposal on Democrats’ radar was a 23.8% tax on the unrealized capital gains of billionaires, a revenue-raising measure that would have affected about 700 people and targeted the untaxed wealth of the ultra-rich rather than income. By the end of the week, that proposal was all but cast to the wayside in favor of a broader surtax on income that would affect thousands.
