    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?

    Debt money and the world of international finance all seems like some kind of alchemy to me. I don't understand crypto, either. Why is Bitcoin, which is purchased with debt money and resides in cyberspace, sound money?

    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.

    In this interview, the guy being interviewed handled something called the "cyber portfolio" at the State Dept and now runs a freedom of speech foundation. He gives a detailed description of the censorship apparatus, both in the US and Europe, and explains how and when it was created, which happened under Obama, and how questioning mail in ballots or COVID lockdowns became a legal attack on the cyber infrastructure. One of the most interesting things I found was his describing the establishment's definition of "democracy", which is getting all of the globalists (I'll call them) "stakeholders" (global corporations, NGOs, bureaucrats, international finance, media players, etc) to agree with each other and fuck you, the insignificant useless eater. This is what the WEF does: it brings together all of the aforementioned parties to arrive at a consensus as to how they will lord it over you. "Democracy" refers agreement within their precious institutions, established for them, and not some arcane notion such as government by, for and of the people. 1758529993280205039 https://twitter.com/TuckerCarlson/status/1758529993280205039

    Thank you! This is insane. Now any prosecutor who doesn't like a political adversary can bring a civil suit against them without a plaintiff and or injured party. There's no way this kind of idiocy can with withstand an appeal.

    This has got to be overturned. There is injured party! The banks who loaned Trump's business money would have their own staff who evaluated the properties in question before making a loan. They don't claim any injury and were repaid. There is no damage to sue over. It's absurd and a dangerous precedent.

    There's that saying that if you're not into politics, politics will be into you and then I read a version of that from some ancient Greek so it's not a new idea. It's hard to square with spiritual teachings that say mankind needs to become one and love their brother and enemy. How?

    Are you serious? You never put the cart in the cart corral? Why? There are a couple of Cart Narc vids with guys like you. One, when asked to put his cart in the corral replies, "I don't want to" and another says "Make me", lol.

    By shagging carts I assume you mean going around and collecting all of those left in the wild and not placed in the corrals. Cart Narcs' point is that the ones not put put back in the corral pose an obstacle to other other customers and they can roll around and ding people's cars. It's inconsiderate. He's advocating for a more polite society.

    Tucker has a tendency to go overboard. IMO, the grocery store trip should have been more about how Russia is not like the Soviet Union, as usually portrayed by the western media. I think he got overly enthusiastic which is a bit discrediting. Same for the subway which could have done without the music. It speaks for itself. It's maintained, free of trash, violent riff raff and demonstrates a people who care about their surroundings which is more than be said about large US cities (and was the point). Now, with Nalvany dead, that will used to frame Tucker as Putin's fanboy.

    My usual grocery store has conveniently placed cart returns all over their huge parking lots. In one of the videos posted in the Cart Narcs thread, there was guy whose car got dinged up by a cart at Home Depot and he showed how there are no cart returns to be seen. I'd never thought about it but I think he's right. That forces the customer to have to go all the way back into the store to return the cart so is just asking for trouble (carts in the wild). I do agree that Sebastian goes too far but it's comedy. He's mocked people who got pissed about the magnet by pointing out that their car is a beater or a cheaper brand. I worry that someone might shoot him. There is a video where a guy pulls a gun on him. I think he needs to dial it back a bit. FWIW, I always return the cart. I'm naturally polite and happy to follow unspoken rules/etiquette when they make sense. Do unto others!

    This is what I call "pretty slavery". To wit: Pretty Slavery: What It Is And How To Identify And Expose The Fraud Several years ago I coined the term "pretty slavery" and have used it many times in my communications with others to convey the notion of the gilt cage. In a past article, I set forth the notion that freedom is an all or nothing deal. There are no "degrees" where freedom is concerned. One is either free or is not. There is nothing between the two. Degrees only present themselves under conditions of oppression and slavery where the master or tyrant decides what shall be allowed and what shall not. This is by necessity an arbitrary position regardless of how well intended the tyrant may be, for no matter how benevolent one's master, you are always subject to that over which you have no control. There is nothing in principle that constrains the master's hand; nothing to prevent his presumably reasonable base of principles from wandering into whim and caprice. All that aside, there is nothing in credibly derived principle that endows one man to act as the master of another. The Canon Of Individual Sovereignty makes this quite solidly plain. Therefore, no matter how one attempts to slice the pie, he will find it quite impossible to concoct a logically valid basis for one subset of a population dominating another. Dominion over others cannot occur except as a felonious action where those dominated have not given their consent. This may seem intuitively obvious when one looks to the histories of personalities such as Stalin and Mao, whose colorless brutality made obvious to the world that they were monsters needing little more than tail, horns, and a pitchfork to complete the image. Somewhat less obvious are the examples epitomized by men such as Hitler whose personal charisma and charm drew in millions of Germans who thereby fell for his lies and helped usher forth the destruction of most of the European continent and tens of millions of lives.

    How boringly predictable are these sorts. Weak, brittle, lost while thinking they have someone or something by its balls. I also find it amusing to note that such people are so weak of ego, so not in possession of themselves, and so needy of being "heard", that they throw all caution and self control to the wind such that, rather than sitting back and watching to see how it all unfolds, they make these dire predictions, wild accusations, and engage in second-grader name-calling for the sake of salving and soothing the collapsed train wrecks those egos represent as they lie to themselves about... well, everything.

    It is a good essay, so far as it goes, but could have gone farther. Perhaps there were space constraints. I wrote on this very subject back in 2009, but addressed the issue in somewhat greater detail here. I've posted the essay here before, but some things bear repetition. Let's do a blow by blow. Language is everything, much unbeknownst to nearly all people.

    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.
