    I agree! If firing 45K government workers is restrained then I'd like to see what radical is.

    Well, I hope you're right and I'm not inclined to go digging into it. Why would he include cap & trade in his omnibus bill, though, and not pull out of the Paris accord right off the bat?

    Globalist take on Milei - pretty much what you'd expect but surprisingly balanced. This bit I found curious: No area sums up the cognitive dissonance that Milei inspires better than climate change. Milei campaigned as a full-blown climate change denier. He said that “politicians who blame the human race for climate change are fake” and called the very idea of climate change a “socialist hoax.” And yet as president, his top climate diplomat confirmed that Argentina will remain in the Paris climate agreement. He even included a new cap-and-trade plan to limit carbon emissions in his omnibus reform bill. Observers could be forgiven for having whiplash—even for Milei, the turnaround on climate has been dramatic. This is hardly the only issue where Milei’s rhetoric and his actions are surprisingly divergent. So how should we judge Milei—by his outlandish campaign statements, or by his restrained actions once in office? https://foreignpolicy.com/2024/02/13/javier-milei-policies-libertarian-argentina-economy/

    Families of hostages have protested and even crashed some meeting of Israeli officials. It didn't do any good, apparently. They're just interested in the hostages and don't have a problem with the Palestinian death toll.

    Wow. I'll bet your grandfather was a wealth of information about communism. I have a book that was written by a first hand experiencer of the Bolshevik revolution that's the most gut wrenching and interesting book I've ever read. If you're interested in that type of stuff, copies are sometimes for sale online (it's out of print) or otherwise you can read it here: https://archive.org/details/Leaves_From_A_Russian_Diary The experience of living through communist oppression is the biggest reason that so many of the eastern European countries are blind to the crimes of Ukraine and will always hate Russia. It's real problem and I understand it. I don't know if that wound will ever be healed and with Russia invading Ukraine (even though they had it coming) it's solidified their hatred.

    How many Palestinians can be killed before Israel reaches some kind of tipping point from which it cannot recover? I don't know what that would mean - maybe international condemnation and sanctions - but I'm curious how far this can go. They claim to have killed 12K Hamas and Hamas says 6000. Whichever is true, that leaves between 16K and 22K innocents dead (based upon about 28K dead so far). Then we have the fact that the people still alive have no homes or functioning communities to return to.

    Humans are hypocritical assholes and have been forever. Anyone believing there is real freedom of the press is either low on IQ power, morally compromised, painfully naive, or some combination of these. Let us consider a quick example from an era past, when "freedom" was so patrioticallt waved like a flag by most Americans in the purported land of the free. Back in my days at military school we had a staff member, commander Duncan, who'd fought in the Pacific. He was retired navy when I knew him and always struck me as a solidly good and admirable man. I've known many veterans of that war - well enough to know that they tended to talk very little of their experiences of those days - so when one would open up about something, we tended to listen with great care. So one day several of us were hanging about by the little gymnasium where we would form up for muster during inclement weather. But this was a fine day and commander Duncan was there and we all got to talking. Viet Nam was still swinging and we were asking about going to war and what was it like, and all that sort of thing. Out of nowhere, the commander broke into a short story about a thing that happened one day late in the war. I don't recall the battle, but I think it may have been Iwo Jima. Duncan was 19 and piloting a landing craft. At some point, his boat was filled with Japanese POWs and his CO then had him raise the ramp, at which time he was ordered to stand to attention, face aft, and that whatever he heard he was not to turn around. He turned after which he told us there was a great fusillade of small arms fire. He was then ordered at ease and turned to see his boat was then filled with dead Japanese soldiers. That was an act of murder in gross violation of the Geneva Conventions; the sorts of act for which we Americans hung several hundreds of German officers with all manner of self-righteousness being waved about as if we were saintly people dispatching evil pursuant to Divine command. And yet, had a journalist been privy to that act, perhaps in possession even of photographic evidence to the fact of it and had his press published the fact, what does anyone here think would have happened? He'd have been lucky to escape being killed no only by "government", but by about ten million Americans... you know, the lovers of all that is right and decent... all the time. But more likely he would have been taken up on some sort of charges such as aiding and abetting... anything to keep him bottled up at least until the war was over, after which perhaps he would have been quietly released with the unequivocal warning that his life, much less his freedoms, now hung by a very thin thread.

    Since when do Theye pay the least attention to their own laws when to do so proves inconvenient? I didn't follow the details of the whole wikileaks thing, but I seem to recall that Assange was given those documents. That is, he didn't do the stealing. Assuming this, how could his actions have been espionage? He pissed in Their cornflakes and now they want his head.

    I read that he said he would keep some welfare programs in order to help people get through this and he'll have to or people will turn against him. Hopefully by firing the 45,000 government workers it will be affordable.

    Well, we can trade with anything we please, as well, but use the USD for everyday transactions like paying bills, buying gas and groceries, etc. I guess it will be the same in Argentina. This is where the "poor" part is going to come in. Most of them are already poor with a hugely inflated currency so when they trade that in for USDs they're not going to get very many USDs and they're still going to be poor but, I guess Milei's thinking is that whatever meager money people have will then be more stable so they won't be becoming even poorer through the Argentinian inflation and they'll have ours, instead. So, then what? Slash spending and pay off their national debt? How long will that take? Next, bring in investment to create privat sector employment and generate wealth?

    Oh, I see. No central bank, "no lender". So, where are they gonna get all of these US dollars? I never thought about that before - all of the USD floating around the world. I assume most is digital but if he wants USDs to be Argentina's official currency, we're talking a poor population who deals in cash, I presume. To get USD you either have exchange your local currency or sell something to the US and get paid in USD, right? So sorry, my understanding of fiance is poor and I'm also a math tard. I get how inflation works with printing fiat, financing debt with bonds and the need for something of intrinsic value but that's about it.

    resident Javier Milei anticipates that he is near materialising his idea of long-held aim of dollarisation, claiming that Argentina has an “85.7 percent chance” of being able to finalise the process. "We have an 85.7 percent chance of being able to dollarise. If we finish cleaning up financial assets and complete the instant reform of the financial system instantly, we could already dollarise but because it’s not instant we cannot,” insisted the head of state in a radio interview. He revealed that, the government estimates that it will clean up the balance of the Central Bank by midyear. “Dollarisation is always at a market rate. When you dollarise, you’re left without a monetary policy, that’s why you have to adapt the financial system because ultimately you have no lender,” he underlined. https://www.batimes.com.ar/news/economy/javier-milei-we-have-an-857-chance-of-being-able-to-dollarise.phtml

    Put that way, it makes perfect sense. Use whatever you want for currency. That said, it seems he's officially said he wants to adopt the USD, if it hasn't happened already. One central bank killed is a step in the right direction and theirs sounds like it needs killing.

    They closed the thread before I was able to respond to you, so I just wanted to say, I agree with all of your concerns about Rand Paul. I still think he's better than the other options, but he isn't my ideal. I'm most likely going to vote for him, but I don't blame people who won't. And if I was still going to live in NYS in 2016 (I'm moving to Virginia for college, which as we know is a swingy state) I would be less likely to vote for him. Even still, if the LP candidate is too good to pass up (Someone more like Harry Browne than Gary Johnson... the latter of which was more of a lesser of five evils) I would consider voting for them.
