    Sure. You can live on it in the same sense that slaves in the South lived. Cuban doctors seem not so happy with the situation. I guess slavery is one way to control costs.

    He represented a large military district in South Carolina and he actually had some influence on policy vs being a complete nobody casting protest votes. There is a degree of difficulty factor when you grade someone. And a quick glance shows 83 is like what 6th in the House? You should alert Ron Paul that he has two neocons on his institute board Walter Jones Cumulative Freedom Index Score: 81% John Duncan Cumulative Freedom Index Score: 84%

    That article has one explanation for the lower health care costs. Here is maybe a better/correct explanation. Average annual doctor income United States- $189,000 Average annual doctor income in Cuba - $804 Yes. You read that correctly. Doctors are paid $67 a month. They are slaves. https://www.statnews.com/2017/02/08/cuba-doctors-meager-pay/ https://www.foxnews.com/world/cuba-hikes-salaries-for-doctors-nurses-to-as-much-as-67-a-month

    All of those numbers are just made up. China is a mess. China is also a cautionary tale for the US. Their stock market is down almost 40% over the last 10 years. It turns out an economy built on debt and government spending might not be a good thing. Japan's stock market is still well below 1989 levels.

    https://www.mediaite.com/online/breaking-trump-names-mick-mulvaney-as-acting-chief-of-staff/ 1073703744766922754 So Criminal Justice Reform is now on the docket, cutting aid to Saudi Arabia, Economic Opportunity Zones, hemp legalization, the Weekly Standard shut down and now Trump just put the first Congressman to endorse Rand Paul's 2016 Presidential run as his Chief of Staff. Pretty good liberty week, imo. Worth noting Mulvaney was arguably the most libertarian Congressman after Amash and Massie. And McCain voted against his confirmation as budget director because of Mulvaney's pushes to cut military spending. Mulvaney played a key role to get the Sequester cuts passed in the House. Trump plays golf with Rand Paul, budget chief at Trump Golf Club in Virginia

    The Austrian School of monetarists. So that's actually not a thing that exists. I mean. It kind of worked. They had 400% inflation then they didn't. So kind of good policy right? So Britain had out of control inflation. They dramatically tightened the money supply. They had a predictable contraction and it took time to end the out of control inflation. Then it ended and Britain had 20 years of remarkable growth. We can kind of see the results. We live in the future. They had double digit inflation and unemployment. Then they became a fast growing economy.

    This reminds of the poll where people said Republicans would GAIN seats in the mid term The answer to "Are we in a recession?" is no. It isn't really even debatable. We might be by 2020. But geez. No. We are not in a recession. We are close to the top of the cycle though. and might start rolling over soon. "Currently (last updated December 6, 2018, using data through November), this "Yield Curve" model shows a 15.7683% probability of a recession in the United States 12 months ahead." https://seekingalpha.com/article/4227461-probability-u-s-recession-december-2018

    MeToo like equal pay laws reduces the incentive to hire women. Nobody wants to be sued. My dad was in management in the trucking industry. He would never hire or fire a woman alone in the same room and he retired 10 years ago. This isn't a new thing. A significant percentage of women are crazy and they will use their gender to ruin your life. #FACT

    What's funny about that is now is probably the best time in 8 years to have gold threads. I have never been a gold guy but the fundamentals are there with the positioning of large speculators and hedgers combined with the budgets which could be even more substantial in a recession. There is a good chance gold finally wore out all but the most hardcore of goldtards and is ready for an advance in the coming years. Maybe not. But it is the first time I have been bullish on gold.

And the future will be even more feminized and justice will be determined based on some Marxist theory that classifies people into victim groups. Great. Sign me up.

    The yield curve didn't actually invert. They played games to get that article headline. It is close probably early next year and there is usually a year lag between when the 2 and 10 year yields invert and a recession.

    I don't know anything about gold or trading commodities, but I see you had the COT data in your video. I see open interest fell off the map last week and large traders were net short for the first time since 2001 in August and commercial hedgers are actually more net long than the large traders which basically never happens. It seems like this is kind of significant. You should do a video on that.

    Right. I am all for freedom and take responsibility. Here is the problem. I just helped someone with their insurance and benefits. They make a good income in management in the auto industry. Smart person. Didn't choose the HSA option with health insurance. Very poor decisions and I am sure that is standard. Truthfully, I would rather someone from CATO or the Heritage Foundation just set up a system like Singapore and force people to behave correctly. I know it isn't libertarian. I also know the life will be better for just about everyone with that kind of paternalism. It is great to say just get government out of health care. Super. That is never going to happen. Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare, the huge health insurance industry built on tax breaks to provide insurance to private employers, the VA System are like 95% of the health insurance market. It isn't just going to eliminated. That isn't close to be an option under anyone. Not under Ron Paul. Not under Gary Johnson. Not under President Murray Rothbard's ghost. So you can either propose solutions that will be less terrible or get single payer.

    While I agree with what you said, here is the dilemma. If you leave it up to people to save and pay for their own stuff, you want to know what will happen? They won't buy insurance. You want to know who is going to end up paying their bills? Me. People also don't save and when they do save they have all sorts of brain-dead ideas and try to time markets. The average 401k investor gets a return that is like 80% less than the market because they sell out of stock in 2008 and wait to get back in. I am not sure what the solution is but it seems like the choice is between pure socialism or using the heavy hand of government to make people behave correctly. I would rather have a Sinagapore system where they force you to save and tell you how to save and make you put money into an HSA and make you buy insurance than what is going to happen otherwise. Freedom is unlikely to be on the menu.

    I dislike her a lot but what is wrong with what she said? As someone who pays for his own insurance, the individual health insurance market is insane in this country. I honestly don't know how a hair stylist or some other self-employed person in their 50s with a family who makes more a more medium income can afford insurance. This is an issue Republicans have to deal with or else more extreme people like Sanders and this woman will win the debate.

REAGAN AND BUSH: CALL IT A SNUB https://www.newsweek.com/reagan-and-bush-call-it-snub-196034"Ronald Reagan is not called the Great Communicator for nothing. In one brief sentence last week, the ex-president neatly summed up his view of George Bush: "He doesn't seem to stand for anything," .... but in case anyone doubted his true feelings Reagan then refused to be seen with the president in public. He skipped a Bush fund-raiser in Los Angeles and barred the press from his house when Bush came calling....There has never been much love lost between the Bushes and the Reagans."
