    No, I saw a link to a fedbook page I did not care to click. Now you claim my caution/boycott is due to a state of denial, and I remind you that a fedbook page proves exactly nothing--especially if you're a Fed. There. We're back where we began.

    How quickly it got forgotten that Fox News was created to herd the sheep that had finally seen through the duplicity of the Libbural Meedya. They bait hook after hook and Republicans chomp down on each and every one.

    Yet more proof that all Washington does domestically is take our money, skim 60% off the top, and dole the remaining pittance back to those state and local governments which jump through all their hoops. And we need those middlemen because...?

    Either that, or a mediocre punk rock band will rise to prominence for a few years solely because they named themselves The Dead Trumps.

    What if the federal government stopped doing the stuff it does and nobody--nobody--suffered but those in the federal government?

    Yep. I've said from the beginning that he's a non-ideological megalomaniac that's been comb-over deep in the establishment for decades. He does whatever or says whatever he thinks people want to hear. He's driven primarily by his own psychopathy (NPD) and it benefits whomever is the last person to speak to him. Most of his supporters fell for that psychopathy. Perhaps a few thought they could use it to their advantage. Either way, it's a fools bet. All the good that he has done (and there have been several good things) has been undermined by the bad. Government still grows under his watch and liberty still wanes.

    Whatever, dude. That uprising would last just about long enough for his biggest fans to discover that no one wants to hold their beers for them.

    Yes. But say that in public and you'll find their fans can make even more excuses than Trump's fans can.

    Trump is in George W. Bush territory. He read a poll that said Republican primary voters don't trust the media and he engineered his campaign accordingly. Trump is a player, and the world is teeming with people begging to be played.

    "Oh please... Trump is a genius and he's playing them all! There's no way the establishment could control this guy! If he's putting in the deep state folks, it's all part of his master plan for liberty!" Lol - it's funny, really... They simultaneously believe that Trump is being manipulated when he does things they don't like and he's playing 24D chess when he does things they like. It's almost as if they were conned, or something, and they've invested so much into their own belief that they make every excuse to believe it wasn't so.

    No, it's not. Unfortunately, they've ruined the game. I really like pro football, but this "entertainment ball" is horseshit. The great thing about the pros is that you had parity between the players and it really came down to coaching, schemes, and the mental aspects of the game. (College football is all about recruitment, sadly) But now, it's all about the zebras. What will they call and when? They own the game. And if a team disputes that, they "go to New York" and let the NFL settle it. The outcomes of games are rarely driven by the play of the teams, anymore. I admit I still watch. But in order to enjoy it, you have to let go of any semblance of fairness in the final scores or the records. It's like the WWE, these days. You can still see some smart play-calling and great individual efforts, but the end-result just feels scripted.

    Bottom line. It's not a contest between the best and it's not worth my time to watch. Especially since I'm no fan of Maroon 5.

    You figure repeating it will make it true? I remember when Zippy spelled words as the English do. I remember several times Zippy's prose style changed, and he developed amnesia. He couldn't remember what happened last week. I remember when one day he was waxing eloquently about the Broncos, and the next he forgot that the Seahawks had not been an AFC team for years. I don't refer to the Zippy account as 'they' because I think there's royalty involved. And repeating stuff that denies the evidence which has passed before my eyes will not make me believe that stuff is true.

    I didn't expect them to, either, but I didn't expect them both to lose. The Saints were clearly and obviously screwed. The funny thing is the two bad calls in the Chiefs' favor before the bad call against them. I can't imagine why I would possibly bother to watch the Stupor Bowl. I've already seen everything the year's two best teams are going to do.

    If they are defective, yes. But, of course, the FRN's defects don't hurt the government, only the civilians. So it never gets recalled, and we aren't allowed to sue. No matter how much middle class wages erode and savings evaporate.

    Half a century later and they still seem to be screwing teams that were in the AFL. That's a ridiculously long time to hold a grudge. And despite instant replay, they still manage to pull it off. I hate the NFL.

    Well, you see, if they didn’t call something there, that could have ended the game with the wrong team winning.

    The game has rules. If it didn't, somebody would buy a trebuchet and never miss another field goal. That'd be real slick, but if nobody ever kicks the pigskin again, is it still football?

    Well, this sucks. But, you know, the Rams did not lead even one second of the last game. So there may be hope for my Chiefs.

    I get it. I wasn't speaking for anyone else, either. :) I just see technology as something that comes regardless of what anyone does, so I try to not to blame the technology, but the people who misuse it. And then I try to see the good that people who don't misuse it get.

    Oh sure... they are tracked when they need to be. They have the data; it's just a matter of whether or not they choose to use it. Make a big enough stink and they will choose it. Agreed on everything else in your post. (BTW, I'm not a technologist or a futurist - I just choose to focus on the positive side... Maybe a stupid "optimist"?)

    (Sorry for the late bump. Was just talking about this tonight.) The way I see it, in this day in age, they monitor cash just as easily as a card. Every bill is numbered and recorded each time it passes through a bank. It's not hard to know which cash went to which person in between. At least on your higher denominations. People take that money out of one bank, give to a business, who then puts it right back in another bank. Sure, the ones and fives might get recirculated a few times before they hit the bank, but with fewer people using cash?? It just means the money doesn't flow as fast between people. So it's more likely to return the bank these days. They got computers crunching data a lot harder than this. If anyone is trying to hide from the evil eye, this is probably not a very effective way to do so. They've gotcha either way.

My personal story (pt2)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:57 AM
Among my many interests was electricity and I decided that I wanted to change how the industry operates. Understanding the free market as I did, I was pissed that the coolest discovery in the history of mankind was being regulated to death by the government. I wanted to change that.

I found a job as a part-time temporary meter reader. My girlfriend went ballistic that I was quitting a salaried job for a part-time temp job, but I had complete confidence in what I was doing. Meter

My personal story (pt 1)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:55 AM
I’ve never used this blog feature before, but since people have wondered (and asked) about my personal story, I figured it was best to do it in here rather than the forums.

It may come across as anecdotal, but I assure you that this same type free market story is working itself out all over the country and the globe. Even in the face or increasing government interference.

I was born in Western PA the third of four boys. When I was still a baby, the second child died
