    Why are you acting like you're preaching to the choir? Read his posts again. Accusing people of being trolls and having gall? Check. Blathering about one party rule, as if we haven't had it for decades? Check. Advocating for more federal control, thus giving cover to the very people who are pushing this deplorable new federal bill? Check. A complete failure to address valid questions, or even to treat the people who ask them as human beings? Check. Trying to distract from that fact by stirring shit? Check. If there's a problem with the way my state is counting my vote, the last thing I want is to force the people of my state to outvote New York City in order to fix it. The very concept is stupid. We'll identify the problem and fix it. Having the entire population of California impose rules on us could not possibly help us do that. To suggest otherwise is "a complete failure to comprehend what is happening."

    Are you talking about TheTexan? Because everyone else is bashing both major parties equally. Or are you merely trying to distract people from the fact that your "the feds have a duty to jack with state voting systems" argument is constitutionally wrong, without principle, and the source of these problems?

    Then why talk about leftarded behavior and ignore rightarded behavior? Is that rational? Do you know how we got in this mess? We got in this mess because nearly half the voters support every federal power grab. That's a different half every administration. But the partisan idiots on both sides can absolutely be relied upon to support federal power grabs while "their team" benefits. That is how we got in this mess.

    Bullshytt. The Republicans party has pulled just as much rightarded crap over the decades. Power corrupts. We can never, ever trust Washington, D.C. to use a power only once, or only for good. Never. And we sure as $#!+ can't trust the party of Lincoln, Taft, Hoover, Nixon and the Bush Crime Syndicate Family.

    Why? What are you picking on Sonny Tufts for? One of the very "the feds should exercise dictatorial power over everyone and everything when the Republicans have the majority, but when the Demoncrats® do, that's the only time the Tenth Amendment counts!" fascist trolls you started this thread about jumped up and reiterated his support for the very position you decry. So Sonny Tufts asked what the Republicans should have done. What could they do that wouldn't set a precedent so broad and dangerous that this power grabbing federal law would have been entirely unnecessary? I'd be interested to see the answer (if I didn't already know the Shyll never even tries to answer hard questions, and will ignore this one). And you should be too.

    Ahh, I think I see what you're trying to say. Yes, the monetary inflation has already happened and it will be the eventual cause of the price inflation. They artificially raised M by printing and lowered V with lockdowns. But they can't keep V lowered forever with that kind of increase in M. And yes, the media will blame the price inflation on "covid hangover" or some such nonsense. But I'm wondering if the Fed will be able to use interest rates to try to slow it down? And how high will those rates have to get to do that?? They've been keeping them artificially lowered for years now. If that dam bursts, and they can't contain the price inflation with interest rates, what other tools do they have?? That scenario is the death spiral and it could happen quickly. I think they'd have to pull another world-wide freeze of some sort and the nations of the world would have to accept whatever we do. Everything is tied into the reserve currency and we still have the bombs.

    I'm not sure I've seen this question answered here, yet. First a brief economics lesson for the uninitiated. Economist, Irving Fisher developed a monetarist version Quantity Theory of Money which is readily used. I don't think it was meant to be a "precise" theory; it's meant to be simple but I think it generally holds. The calculation looks like this: M*V=P*T (Money supply X Velocity of money = Price level X volume of Transactions in the economy. What this shows is that when the money supply increases but the velocity stays low, you don't get price inflation. But if both money supply and velocity are high, price inflation is guaranteed. Austrians would argue that the reason you're not seeing the inflation in prices is because it's hitting certain sectors and not others. This time mainly the stock market. I believe both things are true. We know that the economists at the Fed are well versed in monetarist theory. At any rate back to the question at hand... I think we know the expected path the economy is going to take. With these trillions of new dollars printed, and the lockdowns to eventually fade (some places quicker than others), the velocity of money is going to pick up. So we're going to start seeing price inflation in the other sectors. And the government and Fed are salivating for that inflation. Who wouldn't want to pay off '20/'21 debt with cheaper '22 dollars? And it allows them to raise the interest rates to give them more levers in the future. So the question becomes, can they control the Velocity by adjusting the interest rate? Left unbridled, a "return to normal" is going to speed inflation (and if a new minimum wage law gets passed in the next 2 years, watch out!) They know an unbridled inflation rate would be distasteful to the American people, so they hope to raise it fast enough to give them their levers and debt service reductions, but slow enough to keep the people from dragging them through the street by their tongues. Preferably, the sweet spot is having the public just mad enough to ask for more increases in benefits due to the rising cost of living, but not mad enough to do that other thing. So, do you think the interest rate rises will be enough for them to maintain that sweet spot? Or will it get away from them like it did in the 70's?

    Since when is the "We got a badass over here" meme "gay"? It's been all over the interwebz for many moons and it's used by all sorts of folks. There are several samples in the various "bestest picture thread evarrr"-s.
  8. The reason I have no use for monarchies is it's complete pot luck what you get. If your generation gets a Victoria, you could be in worse shape (assuming her advisors aren't lying to her about what they're doing), but if you get an Ivan the Terrible you're screwed. I prefer a system that at least holds out hope for nonviolent revolution, whether people are generally smart enough to use it or not.

    And I'm pretty sure you meant neither Bismarck nor the kaiser.

    You're right, I should have said the Kaiser, not Bismarck. :/ (My WWI history is rather rusty...I do remember Hitler suffered from mustard gas inhalation during that war and a bunch of other factoids) Yeah, monarchs have been somewhat fascist in certain occasions, but they always had incentive not to destroy their subjects' economy or their own respective societies as presidents and prime ministers or even legislators do. (such elected officials almost always leave office very wealthy and almost never face justice for their misdeeds) Generally speaking, the best to worst scale goes- voluntary association with government>hereditary monarchy>monarchy>classical republicanism>modern constitutionalism>democracy etc.

What has it to do with politics? Everything. Politicians piss us off, then try to misdirect our anger 'across the aisle' to people who are fundamentally exactly the same, but wear a different party label. The game is age old, but still works.

People are angry, but they are often in denial about it. They know they're angry, but they don't want to admit they're angry
