    Rule of law? You dumb Democratic douches cannot even define what the law is.

    Mr. Ladies Man, AKA Soy Boy, the Alinsky method of attacking your opponent where you are weak is not working any more. People are looking at their paychecks buying less and less, sky high rent costs, ridiculous mortgage rates, Biden lying his ass off when he said inflation was 9% under Trump and saying, "I do not believe you" if you look at the polls.

    And this trial? I did not think anything could top the Democrat douche policy on Covid, but this is getting there. You have a porn star grifter who owes Trump $500,000 and refuses to pay it (talk about your rule of law right there, soy boy) gets up on the stand and says the polar opposite of what she had previously said six years ago. Hell, she cannot even make up her mind if she had sex, whether it was with consent or not, and my personal favorite, a fucking porn star blacking out while having sex. Of course, Soy Boy, you would probably know a thing or two about that.

    And then there is convicted, serial perjurer Michael Cohen who stole $30,000 because he thought he was underpaid. Man, took about the perfect Democratic douche witness. He is slinging the same bullshit as California shop lifters. Hey, it is okay to steal if you think need it.

    The judge's daughter is making millions campaigning off the campaign trail, and this POS fucking judge is denying Trump's first amendment rights. The judge sustained objections before Trump's lawyers even fully asked their questions. This case is more rigged than the OJ trial.

    Only a true douche like you could be proud of a legal system with those two star witnesses.

    Spidy, unlike you and Thailand Tooms who are grifters living off the government dole, I have to live and work in the USA. After this hearing and the porous border, you are talking rule of law? Pristine justice system? You two are fucking nuts.

    And before you go on with your latest girlish hissy fit, Oh Elvis what are you complaining about, I am actually happy that this legal abomination has taken place. The only thing better than this rigged trial will be the rigged verdict. If Trump is found guilty, you can pencil him in as our next president.

    I can't think of anything better to show everyone how fucked Democrats are in the head than this trial.
    What does a gag order that Trump repeatedly defied have to do with him pleading with his cult followers to show up to protest his criminal trial, which practically none of them did?

    Trump urges supporters to go out and peacefully protest ahead of hush money trials opening arguments.
    4/22/2024


    https://thehill.com/homenews/campaig...ening-remarks/

    That includes right outside that courthouse. I think somebody counted about 4 showing up one day.

    That is when those 5-6 Repub Congressional / Gov / VP Candidate Hopefuls numbskulls showed up to make sure the Judge, jurors, court staff and their families understood that they should not be misled into a state of complacency by the lack of locked and loaded Repub Trump Cultist ready to deliver an "ordinary tourist outing" direct hit on and about their head and shoulders with a blunt instrument and a few Third Reich "selfies" through the brains and limbs of them, their children and their childrens' children anytime after the trial if it does not go the way they want.

    Which brings us to the jury's verdict that you seem to be fretting about so much. LOL. Despite the documented evidence so overwhelming there wasn't even a need to examine an eye / ear witness, it will require an unprecedented level of courage, American patriotism and devotion to the Rule of Law for ANY of those jurors to submit a Guilty verdict on the Head of the Trump Crime Family. LOL.

    They have seen what Trump and his violent, cop-attacking and cop-killing America-hating cult followers are capable of and will do when and if they don't get their way by any means necessary.

    You think any of those jurors are willing to subject themselves, their families and their children to a lifetime of blood lust vengeance from that lot? LOL.

    Sleepy Don brings his MAGA Thugs right into the courtroom during the trial. Close enough for the jurors to smell them. Every one of those jurors knows if they submit a Guilty verdict / vote, the Trump Cultists and MAGA Thugs will target them and their families from here to eternity and that any future Repub so-called president will eagerly and happily Pardon and Fully Exonerate each and every one of their murderers and tormentors on day one, freeing them to enjoy a life of Repub Deadbeat luxury on the dumb sucker Repub hillbilly donations from their GubMent Entitlement checks.

    I am only ready to be shocked, amazed and filled with admiration for any or all jurors who cast a totally justifiable Guilty verdict. But I am not counting on it. For the above blatantly obvious and well-orchestrated reasons.

    But, either way, at least we will have on the record for all time an under Oath and Unchallenged testimony of Classic and Iconic Christian Right Darling Repub Donald J. Trump slurring "You remind me of my daughter" at least three times as he whipped out his mushroom dick to raw dog a porn actress while his latest wife was recovering from giving birth. LOL. Priceless!

    Yes, for sure when Trump defunded and removed the Early Warning / Pandemic Prevention Teams from those Chinese labs in 2018 and 2019 against dire expert warnings not to do something so dangerous and stupid, presumably either to flatter his disastrous trade war victor Xi's ego, simply because Obama and Hillary's prints were all over that successful Pandemic Prevention program or all of the above, he was most certainly laying the groundwork for a ton of inevitable recovery inflation theft from you, me, practically everyone on the Planet.

    Unless he actually thought the piddling $100 -150 Million costs for it he cut from the budget was a fine trade-off for what he ushered in and exacerbated for America and the rest of the world. He's pretty stupid. So maybe that was all there was to his reasoning for doing it. I have no doubt he would do something that dangerous and stupid again in a New York Minute if the electorate is dumb and careless enough to give him another chance.

    But what you are talking about is the removal of coffee from the CPI, where removing and adding items purchased in certain quantities is done all the time.

    What these CBO reports are about are are "consumption bundles" of several commonly purchased items that likely add and subtract items that were known to have been purchased routinely in 2019 vs today. It is not merely a copy of what is used to measure CPI, which is not something the CBO determines anyway. I would have to assume a typical "consumption bundle" does not merely consist of giant cans of coffee and only coffee. Otherwise, yeah, the offset by increases in average wages since 2019 would not exceed that increase.

    Where's Larry?

    Up until a year or so ago Harvard economist Larry Summers was the darling of Mainstream Media. On the strength of his momentarily advising Barack Obama during the Obama-Biden Administration's historic economic recovery from the previous Bush2/ Repub admonistration's spectacular "Once in 100 Years" typical and routine Repub colossal economic and national security policy and stewardship results disaster, Summers was eagerly quoted or trotted out onto MSM programming to wax eloquently about how wrong Joe Biden's methods were to solve the spectacular "Once in 100 Years" colossal Trump / Repub economic and national security policy and stewardship results disaster the Biden-Harris Administration inherited.

    Therefore, it is puzzling to me why Larry did not show up on any of this weekend's MSM political shows to humbly apologize to the Biden-Harris Administration and to the American people in general for getting it so wrong while they got it so right.

    In fact, as of this writing the only results for a Google Search on week old "CBO reports that the American consumer's purchasing power is greater today than it was in 2019", clearly the biggest and most important economic news in a year and the reason several polls have been showing that respondents feel their state and family's economic and financial condition has recovered fine and doing well despite that of the "country" doing poorly, this and the one I posted previously from the center-right think tank American Enterprise Institute are essentially the only media mentions of it at all:

    There's more good news on inflation. Americans may have a hard time believing it.
    May 17, 2024


    https://www.morningstar.com/news/mar...e-believing-it

    Purchasing power for the average household actually increased from 2019 to 2023, a government report found. But higher earners are still coming out on top.

    There's some good news on the inflation front - but it's likely to offer little comfort to Americans still smarting from years of high prices.

    A new report from the Congressional Budget Office released this week shows that inflation may have had less of an impact on households' bottom lines than months of sticker shock on everything from Big Macs to daycare might suggest.
    Curious, isn't it? I mean, this non partisan Congressional Budget Office report ought to have been the focus of at least 10-15 minutes of every Sunday political talk program on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, damn, even Fux News. This is a hell of a lot bigger and more historic than whatevrr some numbskull field goal kicker cried about, Trump's latest dozen or so criminal lies or even if Biden tripped on a pebble while walking to his bicycle.

    Yet, crickets.

    Why, it is almost like Mainstream Media has no interest in reporting truly historic good news about the real state of the Union today if it in anyway can not be spun as a typically pro Repub "Bothsider" argument.

    So I can only assume the reason Larry Summers is no longer invited on those programs nor is he even eagerly quoted anymore is because he has served his usefulness as a tool to help Repubs win elections.

    And in case anyone missed it, their secondary goal was to trash America, the American legal system, the Rule of Law, Law and Order, to intimidate, threaten and endanger the Judge, jury, court staff and all of their families. The Classic "tough on crime" Repub agenda.

    First off, crypto is often synonymous with bitcoin, and that is a mistake. Most crypto is bullshit but I have kicked the tires on bitcoin, and I cannot see any huge flaws with it.

    The reason I was making fun of you on currencies is that JusTK was doing as he always does and bashing the USA and the dollar. Thing is if you look at all the world currencies they are worse than the dollar because the supply of said currency has been increased even more than the dollar. The biggest economy in the BRIC is China, and they have been printing money the likes of which the world has never seen. The Chinese have built so many empty apartments it is up to some crazy number. It was something like they could house everyone in Asia twice. It was something outrageous like that, and price: income ratios for housing in China are the highest in the world. Their economy is set up for an epic collapse.

    The other thing the anti-dollar people are always hawking is gold. Platinum is 30 X rarer than gold yet gold has been twice the price of platinum due solely to the hype. So when people hawk gold, I ask why are you not buying platinum instead? And they are so stupid they do not have an explanation, but they think they are geniuses when gold goes up. They think they are smart when in reality they just won a completely random bet.
    .
    The statements you made in bold is 100% correct.

    I have come to the conclusion that Bitcoin is one of the best ways to store value for me. Diversification is important. Land, Income producing Real Estate that gives you positive cash flow, a profitable business that gives you positive cash flow, Stocks both growth and dividend; Precious metals all play a part in one's portfolio. But of the items on the list IMO Bitcoin is superior to them all.

    Apology accepted.

    Thanks again and again and again, Joe

    Center-Right Think Tank Discovers Consumer Buying Power is Greater Today Than in 2019.

    This research only extended through 2023. With Bidenomics creating even more jobs with even higher wages along with Trump's Pandemic Inflation being tamed even further into 2024, the American Consumers' purchasing power has no doubt increased well beyond Trump's supposedly "ok" economy years even more than the data stated in this report.

    Shhh. Don't anybody tell Mainstream Media about this:

    Looking At Consumer Purchasing Power since 2019.
    May 16, 2024


    https://www.aei.org/economics/lookin...er-since-2019/#text=So%2 see%20 overall%2 see%20 the%20 data%20 might, over%20 the%20 past%20 four%20 years.

    The key finding: While households purchasing power generally increased through 2023, the effects varied by income group: The share of income required to pay for the 2019 consumption bundle decreased for all income quintiles, with the highest-income households experiencing the largest decline. In other words, purchasing power increased for all groups.

    The Cmdr Speaks about Crypto

    Personally, I don't give a fuck what the (Dis) United States of America does when it comes to crypto policy. Will not affect me. I have seen the hostility coming for a long time because crypto has the possibility to undermine the reserve currency. That is something the (Dis) United States of America is willing to go to war over. But how do you conduct a war against the entire world (51% attack) who sees the decline happening there and has decided they they need options? How do you conduct war in cyberspace against an unseen, decentralized enemy that exists worldwide.

    The users of crypto.

    It does not matter if you think I am right or not. I do not have the blinders on like some people do and look at the (Dis) United States of America from the outside. The world sees what time it is. They are taking steps to protect themselves from the drunken, stumbling giant the the (Dis) United States of America has become. Men living in the (Dis) United States of American cannot even pay for a handjob without risking being put on the news, jail and their reputation. No wonder I hear so many individuals referring to it as a "sex prison".

    Why do they want to make algorithmic stable coins illegal? Why do they want to make all stable coins in USD to be backed by USD and have to be insured by a entity approved by the (Dis) United States of America? Fear is why. Fear so intense it makes causes water to drip from their knees. Imagine a world without a political class. Where the people actually go and serve and then return to day to day life as the original founders planned. A mass of individuals is more powerful than the political class. Dumb money! That is the real deal.

    Fuck um! I saw this coming like a hanging curve ball where you can see the seams on the ball spinning. I have figured out every legal way to avoid being tracked monitored and otherwise having my freedom impinged upon by individuals so old they cannot even use a smart phone.

    Cyberspace is space. A US space force member wrote a thesis that Bitcoin is a weapon. That the (Dis) United States of America risks falling behind in the weapons race in cyberspace if they do not change the direction of current crypto policy. This is not just politics. This is big boy stuff. National Defense. The average person does not understand non-kinetic warfare. It may not be able to kill you directly. But if you are deprived of basic infrastructure see what happens to the society to live in. There is a bridge down in Baltimore. Was it a cyber attack?

    No, this is not high minded discussion of policy that the individuals usually engage in. This is real world stuff that most ignore. But that is ok. For one of the first times in my life I have a court side seat at an event of historic change. Crypto has made me a sovereign individual. Opened my eyes. Furthermore it has allowed the great unbanked population to bypass the system. Using crypto I no longer need to ask permission to do anything with my money from anyone. That is a powerful thing. Over look that power at your own peril.

    But it does not stop there. Growing interest in gold and silver. People see the fiat money system is on it's last legs. I still need it. Because it is still a fiat world, ATM. But for how much longer? That is an interesting question. Adoption is slow, until it isn't anymore.

    If by "reallocate capital confiscated" you mean TAXES, then OK!

    When governments issue money, to stimulate work/productivity, it is understood, that TAXES are a necessary mechanism to keep labor and resources engaged/employed in projects and decrease the amount of money in circulation to keep elevated levels of spending and inflation in check.

Does the government know how to deploy capital better than the average business person?

    I will rest at this point and allow you to respond.
    After just watching, "Finding the Money (2024)", a documentary on the Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) of economics, I have to wonder, if it would seem, MMT might explain many of your questions?

    MMT Point #1: The Federal Government is the issuer of the currency.
    MMT Point #2: For a currency issuer,...finding the money is NEVER the problem...finding the resources and managing INFLATION is.
    MMT Point #3: Currency issuers DON'T TAX first...they SPEND first.

    And YES...MMT is often pooh-poohed as "voodoo economics", by the those on the right, economists like Larry H. Summers and ISG winger economists, but it's gaining traction and is one of the best explanations of how the economy/taxes REALLY functions/works, IMHO!

    Thing about bitcoin though is unlike currencies the number of bitcoin are fixed. I think anyone trading in bitcoin is fucking nuts. That is gambling pure and simple. However, if you hold bitcoin as a store of value in case the American economy blows up and as an alternative to the ever increasing number of dollars, that makes sense to me. And if that is what you are doing SC, I apologize for dismissing your notion that you were seeking a viable alternative to the dollar. I thought you were on the team of nuts pushing the Chinese Yuan / BRIC currency thing.

    You keep wanting to win arguments Tooms. You do not live here. You are thinking the press is against Democrats, and that is why you are a loon Tooms. For those of us in the real world, here was an interview with the executive editor of the NYTimes.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibRnawBs7J8

    When Ben Smith at Semafor asked Kahn about former Obama official Dan Pfeiffer's complaint that the Times does not "see their job as saving democracy or stopping an authoritarian from taking power," Kahn went ballistic.

    "I don't even know how it's supposed to work in the view of Dan Pfeiffer or the White House," Kahn snapped. "We become an instrument of the Biden campaign? We turn ourselves into Xinhua News Agency or Pravda, and put out a stream of stuff that's very, very favorable to them and only write negative stories about the other side? And that would accomplish what?

    "There are people out there in the world who may decide, based on their democratic rights, to elect Donald Trump as president," Kahn told Smith. "It is not the job of the news media to prevent that from happening. It's the job of Biden and the people around Biden to prevent that from happening. ".

    End of link.

    So this whole notion that the reason Biden is not winning on the economy issue because of the press is sheer bullshit. In fact, the press is pushing back. The Biden administration has been bullying the press and they are fucking sick of it.

    Biden is no longer a breath of fresh air, a rational alternative to Trump but a senile old guy who is losing his marbles and is a lying, power hungry bully. And you can post all the numbers you want about how great things are, but no one living here believes them.

    I don't have to make any case. You do because you are losing on the issue.

    I know Biden is hostile to crypto. Trump does not need to be pro crypto. Only needs to rein in the current attack dog at the SEC. Congress has already started to put them in check. A President Trump will have the ability to appoint a head of the SEC or have crypto regulated by another agency. CTFC would be better. They know what they are doing. Crypto is not monolithic. The SEC is currently playing dirty with crypto to support political agendas of the current administration.

    The defense rests!

    Of course, Eisenhower would be on the list of presidents who presided over notable Recessions. Only in his case his economic policies and stewardship did not produce one Great Recession, which is extremely rare for a Repub president. Instead, there were 3 Recessions during his eight year presidency, any two of which combined were greater than the middling one under Truman and the one that barely qualified as a recession under Carter.

    Still, he accomplished his economic requirement to garner respect as a Repub president; he ranks dead last on Job Creation among all two term presidents since 1933:

    Imagine how atrocious his job creating record would have been if he hadn't been convinced to continue with the FDR New Deal plan to build the Interstate Highway system that was put on hold during WWII. Members of Congress first had to convince him it was a "Defense Department" project and not really a project to create jobs on construction and even more jobs and better USA infrastcture for the future. Otherwise it is doubtful he would have been pulled away from solidifying our full military commitment in word, deed and treaty to waging war in Vietnam to give it much thought.
