    If you create twenty-two trillion FRNs by typing on a computer, which is the way they're created, then use them to pay off all the bondholders, then there are no more outstanding bonds. There are also so many former bondholders flush with cash and looking to make other investments that FRNs will come to seem as common and undesirable as tree leaves. How we get weaned of foreign oil is as simple: We lock down and destroy our own economy. Sounds simple enough, right? Actually, it's not. Now, FRNs are actually based on something. They're based on debt. Each dollar bill in your pocket is, in essence, a junk bond (look it up--that really is what you get for your labor). So, there has to be some outstanding loan to "back up" each dollar. So, the only way there's enough debt-based "dollars" to pay off the federal government's debt is if the Fed monetizes lots of different kinds of debt. They'd have to use mortgages and credit card debt and everything under the sun. These are the FRN's "solid foundation". The question is, is there enough debt in the world to create enough currency to pay the debt? At the end of the day, we don't know how the imminent crash will work itself out. Anyone who thinks they do is full of hubris. But we do know this much: We may not know exactly how a house of cards will fall, but we know it will fall. And the current crop of elites will turn their grants and kickbacks into something if real worth and cart it off to Dubai or wherever.

    Not to worry. According to Nostradumbass' crystal ball there will never be a vaccine and the feds will not pay out any of our cash before there is. And Trump will oppose mandatory vaccinations (like he did regarding NY?) so we're all perfectly safe. Just sit back and rely on the masters (courts, LEOs and politicians) to save us from thevtyranny and we'll be fine. :sarcasm::sarcasm::sarcasm:

    The Federal Reserve Note, or FRN, is known as the petrodollar. Its value is determined by supply and demand, like everything else in this world (water is cheap, but not in the desert). Its supply is determined by the half dozen huge banks that own the Fed. Demand is determined by many things. The two biggest things are the legal tender laws that make it fiat money (the federal law that makes using it legal and almost mandatory) and the fact that it has become the "petrodollar". The term petrodollar refers to the fact that anyone who buys lots of oil internationally uses dollars to do it. The reason for that is simple. You, as a taxpayer, send the military to any country that sells oil for other things to kick their dog asses. This creates a demand for dollars, as anyone who needs oil has to buy dollars before they can buy oil. This allows those banks to print more dollars without creating too much inflation. Inflation, by the way, looks like prices going up. But it isn't, really. It's the value of the dollar going down. And if you're paid in dollars, your pay is worth less as a result. They just printed lots of dollars, and as soon as this silly lockdown is over, "prices will skyrocket" (your pay will become almost worthless). Yes, the federal debt is in FRNs, and yes, if the FRN becomes worthless, so will your mama's savings bonds, leaving her out in the cold.

    Nationalism by its very nature is highly collectivist. Since nationalism is a form of collectivism it is definitely a form of socialism. Therefore nationalism is just an earlier stage of fascism just as international socialism is an early stage of communism. Of course, since there is really little difference in policy between fascism and communism it really doesn't matter which you get stuck with. Either way you're fucked.

    That's easy to do in a two party system. Think you're immune? What did you call them? Communists, wasn't it? Ain't the lesser of two evils system grand? Twenty percent of the population goes communist because they figure it's better than being fascist, and vote for the media-appointed "frontrunner" in the primaries because they're good team players. Twenty percent of the population goes full fascist because they figure it's better than being communists, and vote for the media-appointed "frontrunner" in the primaries because they're good team players. And sixty percent of the population looks at the ballot and say, whiskey tango foxtrot? And still they salivate over their red meat issues and hot tofu issues, respectively, even as the banksters prepare (in a most bipartisan way) to divide up the people's wealth among the wealthy by printing enough currency to rival the worth of tree leaves in autumn as soon as they allow currency velocity to resume.

    Do We Need The State? By Doug Casey International Man May 21, 2020 Rousseau was perhaps the first to popularize the fiction now taught in civics classes about how government was created. It holds that men sat down together and rationally thought out the concept of government as a solution to problems that confronted them. The government of the United States was, however, the first to be formed in any way remotely like Rousseau’s ideal. Even then, it had far from universal support from the three million colonials whom it claimed to represent. The U.S. government, after all, grew out of an illegal conspiracy to overthrow and replace the existing government. There’s no question that the result was, by an order of magnitude, the best blueprint for a government that had yet been conceived. Most of America’s Founding Fathers believed the main purpose of government was to protect its subjects from the initiation of violence from any source; government itself prominently included. That made the U.S. government almost unique in history. And it was that concept – not natural resources, the ethnic composition of American immigrants, or luck – that turned America into the paragon it became.

    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.
