    It's not cancelled forever, Trump said any time he wants to re-engage he is welcome and he still wants to have a meeting. I don't know why everybody freaks out every time something small happens in a negotiation, they make it seem like the end of the world. Rand doesn't get caught up in all this day to day nonsense and drama, he is better at seeing the bigger picture. Like me. And Trump. And many other people here on this forum.. but not you. Not zippy. Not TheCount. Certainly not CPUd. I feel like in order to have respect for Trump you can't be one of those people who always gets caught up in the drama for the day. You have to have some patience.

    I thought everything was awesome again? We should blame the entire group for "being financially irresponsible" during the Great Recession that STILL has not ended, while simultaneously saying that it has.

    The whole point of the article is to say that "saving money is hard". For 40% of Americans, saving money is impossible because the cost of everything continues to go up and low wages do not. Next, look at where the blame is pointed. A lot of people will blame people like Angela for not saving "enough" and try to say she is fully responsible for her own predicament. Not you or me, but there are a LOT of people out there who will blame victims of circumstance. Angela's predicament, even if she did save, is caused by drug companies charging $40,000 for a single drug, which that same drug in Canada costs $40 bucks and NONE of that money went to research. Link to that article here. We should prepare as best as we can, but there are limits to how much we can prepare. Insurance is supposed to help for situations like this, but look at the cost of both insurance and health care. You pay insurance but insurance has a bad habit of trying to not pay ANY bills at all. For Angela's situation, how much ability would her husband have to try to fight insurance companies in court after a stroke? The way insurance companies operate is predatory on those who are not able to defend themselves. If Angela's husband had not been married to Angela, he would be up shit creek without a paddle. Medical Care costs are also thru the roof. The cost of education is through the roof. The cost of living in general is through the roof. Really what is happening is not that the costs are rising, but the value of money is decreasing. The costs increasing are symptomatic of the value of the dollar, and represents exactly why Fiat Currency is a clear and present danger to society. The way that many companies handle the situations is to twist problems to blame victims and get victims to blame themselves in a way that benefits the companies, not individuals. For Angela's situation, again, she would be shown to the world as being responsible for her own problems because "she didn't buy enough insurance", when really its the insurance companies and the cost of health care that profit from Angela's situation. They put her in Checkmate, and no matter what she did or does, her situation falters through no fault of her own. I have a few disagreements with Angela, but overall, I understand that her situation is terrible through no fault of her own. I know for a fact she is the type of person to prepare for herself as best as she can and to the absolute best of her ability. Strokes happen. Her situation should be limited to coping with the situation only from a medical care perspective, but is exacerbated by the financial, time, and stress costs of that medical care to the point where surviving medically could ruin her financially, which leads us right back to square one, the title of this thread. So lets be clear here. Prepare. How does one "prepare"? Do they spend ALL their money on Health Insurance? Maybe the average person is blamed for "living beyond their means" when a single bedroom apartment now costs (here) $1500 a month and the average pay is $10 an hour? Lets blame the victim again for "not getting an education", an education that costs $50,000 and makes $30,000 a year. Can you say Teacher? I knew you could. Can you say that situation is quite normal? To be expected to be in financial dire straights and crushed by overwhelming debt to afford that education that qualifies a person only for low paying jobs? This is a new class of poverty known as "The Educated Poor". Now, take that average person who is $50,000 in debt, earning $30,000 a year, and trying to pay $1500 for a one bedroom apartment? 30k a year only provides 2500 a month BEFORE taxes, and if rent is $1500, that is well above the recommended 25% of income should be spent on housing. Now lets add in the rest of the bills. $1000 a month for health insurance. That number is also pretty average when insurance is not offered by employers. Ooops, that person...

    There is a documentary called "Fathead" that is a response to "Supersize Me" The guy gets his medical tests, then goes and eats fast food including a lot of McDonalds every day for 30 days. He loses weight and a lot of his tests come out better. The reason is because people who eat fast food tend to get a sandwich, fries and a soda. A sandwich has bread which is starch, potatoes are pure starch and soda is pure sugar. This guy avoided the soda and drank water, and avoided the fries or got small fries and tried to eat high protein. That's NOT the best diet, but the point is fast food often causes weight gain because of the way their meals are configured (sandwich, fries, soda), not because it is oily or greasy or has meat.

    People are not overweight because they eat a diet heavy in meat, it is because they eat a diet high in carbs (particularly refined ones). A high fat, low carb diet is conducive to weight loss.

    The percentage of rich people in any country represent the past economic opportunities. The percentage of Middle Class people in any country represent the future economic opportunities. What that means is that the rich got rich because opportunity had existed. Those people climbed ladders, up to a middle class, and continuing on to rich status. The Middle Class represents the future. If there is no Middle Class, then in the future, there will be fewer rich people. It also represents a lack of opportunity. Our Middle Class is gone. The cost of our educational and medical systems are so high that they have become barriers to even staying where you are. That debt is holding back the Millennials from buying houses, cars, and starting families. People are still dropping out of the Middle Class because of skyhigh costs of everything that no one can afford. Drugs that cost $40 in Canada cost $40,000 here, and none of that money went to drug research. We are experiencing another Housing Boom that no one seems to notice. The good paying non disposable jobs that pay enough to enable a person to stay in the Middle Class are almost non existent. Our education has become Job Training instead of a form of affordable learning. We have a legal system that authorizes plunder, and a moral system that glorifies it. If we continue our current course, we wont just experience an economic crash, we will become the laughing stock of the world until the end of eternity, just as Rome at its end spiraled out of control. Our Money System has been replaced several times, off of the Gold Standard, allowing fractional reserve lending, and other lesser mentioned events, such as repealing Glass Steagall Act, and blurring the lines between Investment Banking and Investment Banking. Wall Street is Gambling for the rich. Hell, even the definition of a Corporation is Personal Profit without Personal Responsibility.

    A post of mine in The Vent: I haven't come to an final opinion on this (The Holocaust) and have been reading several different POVs. One thing that is very interesting is that when Patton became the leading force in defeated Germany, he came to the startling conclusion that everything that Hitler had said about the Jews was correct. Not long after that, Patton mysteriously died in a car wreck.

    I am completely for free markets- have never said otherwise. BUT- the USG meddles in elections & coups all over the world and for places like Venezuela & Iran, it is for resources. The sanctions put on these countries are deliberate acts of war & uncalled for. We have no business overthrowing other governments and sanctioning countries. PLUS the US is no longer a capitalist country- it is a center of crony-capitalism or more correctly, mercantilism, which the War of Independence was fought over. Also, when left alone many "communist" regimes collapse & then become capitalistic- like Cuba right now. Here's a great article about how Cuba has morphed into real capitalism.

    See my 60 minute documentary video for the full story behind the subpoenaed arrest and booking records. It's aired perhaps 50 times along with its sequel, all linked from this page.

    http://algoxy.com/miskno

    Please download CIRCA, rather than streaming the .avi file. The friend that hosts it on that server asked that be done rather than consuming bandwidth there. The 40 minute sequel in 3 parts can be streamed on YouTube.

    Perhaps that will give you an idea of the size and scope of the conspiracy surpressing me and my information.
