Made the SCOTUS rule on it


Our professional republicans are never willing to fight. The dems always are, and cheat as well. Now with the wide open border, this country is done.

The he could have tried. Made the SCOTUS rule on it. Something other than just rolling over.

do you honestly think if Pence did what Trump wanted
it would have worked?

the "Republic would have been saved?"

How so?

he was being realistic

Pence could have stood up against the fraud. He rubberstamped the end of the American Republic.

headlines like this are just so unhelpful

Pence is not the enemy
Democrats are

agree with Pence for upholding the Constitution

populist press has become a mouthpiece for the world's greatest narcissist.
Often but not always good for future of conservatism or Republican Party

No matter what they claim, Marxism is always about the "elites" crushing the rest of the population.

not totally analogous to Bolshevik Russia

as I think the proletariat that Lenin was opposed
would now be defined in modern US as who we call the elites and academics
and other privileged types

and from what I remember Lenin did not give a hoot about the poor or serfs
or the victims per se
he was champion of the workers
which is opposite of today wherein the workers , or in my mind , working tax payers are the enemies
of the state
not the other way around

Workers unite ! is more  phrase that Trump would use. (proletariat)

and the bourgeoisie I would think would not be the enemies of the state but the elitists and government  employees and academics who support the state

I agree with this statement:

"The answer of course was that the bourgeoisie nomenclature was inherently vague, by design, and the gulag did not differentiate between its political prisoners of one social class or another. If you were there, you were an enemy of the state."

I remember in Russian history classes and political science class ( I took of the former and one of the latter) no matter how hard I tried to figure out what was meant by the term " bourgeoisie" I could not grasp it.

Take back the majority!
Sen Rick Scott:
Pick up Georgia, Arizona, New Hampshire, Nevada.
14 Democrat seats coming up for reelection.


Are we voting our way out of vote fraud?

No reparations without repatriation.

"Mr Obama said: “If you ask me theoretically ‘are reparations justified?’ the answer is yes.

"There’s not much question that the wealth of this country, the power of this country was built in significant part, not exclusively, maybe not even the majority of it, but a large portion of it was built on the backs of slaves."

**maybe** not even the majority of it,

you don't say  :wink:

If Counties could leave Colorado, Wyoming would double in size and Denver-Boulder would be a city-state.

That sounds like a good thing, right?  Wouldn't both sides largely be happier?

I would like to see city and county lines moved too.

While we are at it, how about 2 US Senators each for Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, plus the interior of British Columbia.

Hi Doug,

"and from that we know the rest"

Actually in this case W Wilson was likely right
he did not want to be hard on the Germans after WW1

he went into the Versaille meetings with the intention of holding very firm that we should be more gracious
to Germany after WW 1
(reminding me of Lincoln's intentions to the South before he was shot.)

some historians now believe that Wilson came down with the flu and was so disoriented and broken down from the illness and likly even a bit disoriented hypoxic etc. that. he simply wound up giving up on all his intentions of demanding Germany not be punished

as a result other allies had there way in punishing Germany

when I stated we know the rest :

we know that this , the humiliation of Germany after Versaille  gave rise to the conditions ripe for Hitler and Nazis

If Wilson did hold firm we may never have seen either.

I haven't dipped a toe into crypto yet, but I probably will soon. Mostly as a way for my business to get paid as I anticipate all of us face de-personing.

Email me Doug, and I'll tell you where I am heading.

A friend I visited this past week said his son gave him a bitcoin as a birthday present, I guess like giving a lottery ticket.  This was 2013 I think, valued at around $100.
Now he gets teased by the son, asks him who else had their kid give them a $50,000 birthday present? Um, 56,000, oops 44,000, make that 48,000, moving while I wrote this.  Up 500 fold?  4000-fold from 2011?

These downturns make a good test of what others think of the question posed, is this a good time to buy?  If it dropped to 24k instead of 48k is it twice as good of a buy?  I don't have the tools to analyze that.

Can you ride it this far and not be hooked, just buy and sell on the lows and highs?  How do you know which is which?  Why would you sell if it's headed to 90k.  Why would you sell then?  When would you sell?  Have you really made a return if you don't sell? With what percent of your portfolio do you do this? Might as well go all in (just kidding).  It has the best return of anything over the last 10 years, past performance is no guarantee of ... whatever.

If you bought Dec 2017, sold Nov 2018, you lost 80% of your money.

Personally, I want to buy one of those parcels out where G M is looking.

If only Trump had been meek and mild like Mittens Romney!

"Damaged by the left's hate machine. I am so old, I remember when Reagan was Hitler."

Reagan had a normal personality

even if we had tweeting back then he would not have tweeted
foolish childish self aggrandizing gifts to the Left every day so they can attack him every day

Now the Trump is gone the media turns to Ted Cruz who made the unforced political error
of gong to Mexico
so they can take the heat off Cuomo

it used to be - hear what idiotic tweet trump made today

Good stuff, Doug.

As soon as the snow melts, I am GTFO my current location and moving to a much more rural and cold environment.
Just hoping the hyperinflation/global depression waits for me to get moved.

Start with this.

Agreed.  I have been doing this for some time.  I rebuilt my 1880 house in the mountains with this type of energy before I connected to the grid.  I generally buy cheap components on ebay or locally, but these are some nice products; I like the Yeti.

Some other advice from the north country:
1. One of the first readiness conveniences with power off and heat out is a fully working electric blanket.  Standard ones are less than 200 watts.  Buy the inverter for twice that wattage and enough battery capacity.  One deep cycle battery goes a long way.  Electric blanket requires the 'Pure Sine Wave' inverter to work.  I make a long winter drive often (skiing in the mountains this week).  A powered electric blanket is a key winter travel accessory for me.
2. Buy and wrap heat tape on critical pipes n your home such as your water meter and plumbing pipes and fixtures.  I've had furnaces go off when not home and in vacant homes.  The heat tape comes on when the pipe temp hits 38 degrees, so it costs you nothing in electricity to be plugged in and ready.  These would be good to hook up to backup power in that they use very low wattage.  In an emergency, heat the people and then the plumbing pipes first.  One point about freezing up your water meter, which I've done twice, a prepper might not be eager to invite the city into your home, and the City generally owns the water utility.
3. Natural gas and propane generators.  If you have piped natural gas to your home (or propane), there is no reason your furnace should be off when the electricity goes off, but it does go off.  Typical furnace fan needs about 800 watts.  I haven't done this but I should.  They make one called tri-fuel.  If you have gas, you shouldn't be without electricity, even if it is just to recharge your batteries.
4.  Buy gas or propane heaters for backup that don't require electricity.  My tankless gas water heater lights with two D batteries that last a year.  In an electrical outage, I still have endless hot water.  Wall heaters can be bought for gas heat with no electricity required.  Same for gas fireplace inserts. 
5. In one off grid setting we use a propane powered refrigerator/freezer.  One more thing that doesn't have to run off the generator and can run when the generator is off.

6. Buy a CO detector if you are using gas combustion of any kind.  Buy the one with the digital display so that if you ever do get a reading, you know what the CO level is.  I carry one in the car for winter emergencies, in case I've pulled over and need to leave the car/heat running.

Several years ago, we had a blackout during the summer months where the temps were well over 110 degrees. It was utterly miserable. Luckily, I had a fully charged jump starter, plugged a fan in and we were able to sleep in comfort.

I have one of these now:

If they can just print more money, then no need to tax us anymore, right?

just print more money

be happy

if bitcoin is a cult so is the concept we can keep paying interest
 for a debt for centuries and keep printing money
funny how this thinking all comes to the fore just in time
for gigantic democrat partisan spending

did not hear about the new cultist theory  during Trump presidency
