    I dont think there will be a full-fledged war between the US and Iran. Killing the current petrodollar standard requires Saudi oil infrastructure to be badly, badly damaged (or at least claimed to be) thus breaking the dollar>Saudi oil link. Any war will likely be between Iran and Saudis. Seems to me that Iran is already playing ball with the global bankers since they have a cryptocurrency now in place, monetary ties to Europe via a system that bypasses dollar-based SWIFT system, Chinese oil deals and Russian trade deals in place, etc, so all of this is mostly just posturing for the masses. I certainly could be wrong but it appears to me that Iran is already on board with the bankers so it wouldn't make much sense to go blowing them up. Blowing up the Saudis oil trade for a period, on the other hand, would serve the de-dollarization plan quite well, though.

    These vegan burgers are loaded with MSG. It's relabeled under various soy names such as soy protein isolate or disodium guanulate (sp?) but it's the same thing as MSG. Chemical that tricks the brain into thinking something tastes better than it actually does. My SO is a vegan of 10+ years and eats a lot of the Beyond burgers. I was tempted to try one just for giggles until I looked at the label and saw that it included MSG on the label TWICE under two different names, plus other ingredients I am sensitive to. So, no vegan burgers for me even if I wanted them. Which I don't.

    Fed announced ongoing repos for the next few weeks, including some termed longer than overnight. There's multiple reasons this could be happening, or combination of them. Someone is trying to get rid of a lot of Treasuries (Chinese?) and the Fed is soaking them up fast so they don't distort the open market. High debt issuance by the Treasury is loading up the primary dealers with Treasuries to the point they're running out of cash and need to offload to the Fed asap. A few banks are having liquidity problems (DB?) and need to offload Treasuries for cash. That's just three likely possibilities.

    He is one of the good guys. He did vote for Medicare Part D though. The only representative at the time besides Ron Paul who voted against both the Iraq War and Medicare Part D was John Hostettler, I believe.

    It once again goes to show that the soft and weak soy swillers crave and want meat. They want it so bad that they will create and eat synthetic versions of it. That’s wierd. I don’t like or eat eggplant, but you don’t see me eating fake eggplant burgers. Logic escapes these people.

    Those who oppose this website's official stance agreeing with Ron Paul, along with Rand, Amash, Massie, etc., that the government should let American employers hire more foreigners to work for less pay than Americans, might also consider signing Bastiat's Candlestick makers' petition. At the very least, every here who hasn't read it should read it. http://bastiat.org/en/petition.html

    The economy is better than you're making it out to be. But if you really think free markets make people poor, you should change your handle, and you are probably at the wrong website.

    Read the links I posted earlier in the thread about the Manufacturing of Greta Thunberg. It's really not the "left" propping her up. It's the same ol' banks and megacorps funding and directing the green initiative that are propping up the organizations that directly prop up Thunberg. Rockefellers, Dow Chemicals, Shell Oil, Goldman, etc propping up Greenpeace, WWF, e.g., who in turn prop up Thunberg. I really advise people to read the full 6 part series at that link I posted earlier in the thread to understand what's really going on. The usual suspects want to "unlock" the roughly $100T pension and investment fund markets that are tied into the current status quo and redirect that money back into their coffers via "green initiatives and technology". More specifically, a giant wealth transfer from western markets aimed at developing out banking and corporate control of currently "unbanked" areas like in Africa. The catch is that they need everyone to consent to it and buy in....enter Greta and associated public mouthpieces to sell it. eta: Plus, with a giant chunk of that "locked" money tied to aging western boomers, getting it redirected and spent elsewhere so it is not "inheritable", and then cashed out, by heirs in the west (inheritances are bad for socialism agenda) is another aim.

    I did see the part about him talking about Hot Wall. I guess the sun is always beating down out there, even in the winter and at night. It didn’t impress me as a thorough technical analysis of The Wall’s ability to burn the shit out of some wall-jumping asses. I will remember to wear a long sleeved shirt and gloves if I need to GTFO.

    I'm for cutting corporate welfare too. Why hire these foreigners? Who knows. That's a question for the people who want to hire them. They're the ones who want to invest their money in doing that. The government should not be placing any barriers in their way to make it harder for them to hire them. You seem to be concerned about America's economy. Well, allowing more immigrants to come here and work helps our economy, rather than hurting it.

    I agree that we should cut welfare that we're paying to all those Americans just to sit by idle. They should get off their butts and work like these foreigners are trying to. But be careful how you say this, because the way you put it makes it sound like you think there's some finite number of jobs out there so that when one person gets a job that's one less job for someone else to have.

    Is there something wrong with this bill? I wonder why Rand isn't cosponsoring it. I'm pretty sure he cosponsored last year's version of the same bill. https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/senate-bill/386/all-info It's good to Massie is cosponsoring the related House bill. https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/1044

    Can a person develop a device that does something and use it themselves? Can you experiment on yourself? Suppose you develop a sophisticated device that sends a specific electric charge to a certain part of your body or brain. Suppose this stimulation gives you the same sensation as heroin but no heroin or needles. You don't hide it or keep it to yourself. You tell people about it. You never sell it or attempt to market it. You never offer it to anyone else to use. You develop it and use it for yourself so you get stimulated. You are a tinkerer, an inventor, a genius. Will you get raided and told you cannot use your device? Will the judge even go further and forbid you from creating any other devices that could produce pleasure, stimulation, or make your life better?

    I think the area is in a pretty intense drought. The well is shallow. I forget the particulars. I think they call it a bored well. It is about 35 feet deep and when full the water level was about 15 feet from the top. There is about a 2 foot concrete prefab round casing that contains the water. In the past I could get about 120 gallons at any one time and it would refill in half a day. Neighbor said back then that the more the well was used the faster it would fill because the veins would open and flow better when used. It is obvious that it is dry here. The fire ant hills are all crusted over. When you disturb the pile a few come out but nothing like i remember where a leaf falling on a pile would cause masses to come out. Grass all brown. I think new wells below the bedrock in the area are 350 feet deep. The well driller I contacted said usually 2-400 feet gets you an good well. I did not shock the well this year. I just hooked it up, pumped out about 80 gallons, Put on some filters and hooked it up to my camper. There was a slow drip at a connection. The next morning I had water pressure and after a few minutes I noted the pressure drop. Went looking for leaks or running water and saw the drip. Took the cover off the well and water level way down. Hours later it has not risen. If it rained I would think there would be water in the well but we will want reliable water supply here. I am glad that I now know this well will not provide. Most bored wells in the area have dried up and people have drilled modern wells into bedrock. This well was not in use by the previous owner. There was an old 220 volt motor disconnected laying on the ground. I did not know if the pump had stopped working or?? The previous owner originally owned all the property around. A family member lived next door. They just tapped into that well.

    No need to escape. Open communication is key. Dearly love the wife. Don't like the daughter and told her so the other day. Told her to grow up. Told her if I am her problem her problem is solved. She is an adult now and I don't need to do things for her. She is not 6 and if she wants to exhibit attitude and ungratefulness and entitlement she can seek that from others. I love her but do not like her. We do not have to be friends.

    Quick search says the "personal issue" is a recent barroom brawl that Byard was involved in, not the fact that some of his close associates at FEMA are under indictment. Not much info on the net about the brawl. The best people. Though I will say that it's somewhat refreshing to see bribery and other corruption offenses being prosecuted lately. I don't think it's really draining the swamp much but it's nice to see that at least they're going through the motions a little.

    Drove here on Tuesday. Got flat tire on auto trailer. Wednesday tractor would not start. Filed points got it going. Proceeded to cut 5 foot tall vegetation with tractor and bush hog. While cutting on flat ground in straight line front left spindle broke on tractor and the wheel fell off. Got the well going Wed morning pumped out about 60 gallons. This morning I noticed the pressure was not great. I determined the well is low and not refilling. Contacted company to drill new well. Well probably needs to be 350 feet deep. Maybe around $8000? Internet service tethering with Tmobile here sucks. Terrible speeds and often no signal. Cricket was much better.

    Don't waste your time. CaptainAmerica is a troll account. As if sourcing business from China, like 90% of manufacturing related businesses had to do to some extent over the last 20 years to remain in business, makes one suddenly not a libertarian. By my estimation, he's probably the only truly libertarian Congressman in DC. Lots of lukewarm types or outright frauds but he's the real deal imo.
