    I could care less about "most parts of the world", here in the USA RR union jobs pay around $30.00hr which isn't exactly chump-change. Whether or not one is pro or con unions the complaint about having to be on-call 24/7 or face sanctions is valid. How the rest of the world handles their infrastructure isn't my concern and it shouldn't be the concern of the US government either. Hell, our RR's are private businesses and the government needs to butt out of their affairs too.

    This is the 375 GaMMA. 462 gr projectile with what I believe would prove a very high BC over .95. I am designing an ambidextrous bolt gun for it, though the prototype would be 300 Winmag just so I don't have to teethe both a new rifle and cartridge at the same time. I cannot show images of the rifle as this is a candidate for patents. Anyone wants to build a rifle in the cartridge, let them have at it. https://www.dropbox.com/s/vg7rlfub2s5xof0/375%20GaMMA%20-%20II%20v1%20-%202.png?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/lfhdflb1392ukue/375%20GaMMA%20-%20II%20v1%20-%203.png?dl=0

    And how long will it take them to get right what "separation" should mean? I am not even sure that is possible for most. It would seem that once again the 3% will have to lead the 97 by its nose... and even then. I am NOT in favor of secession, save as the absolute very last resort. Normatively, I'm absolutely OK with it, but in point of practical reality, it's a very dangerous move. Superorganization was inevitable ever since they placed the first stones at Sumer. The larger and better organized the settlement, the more powerful, and we don't have to rehash what that means, eh? All modern nation-states are superorganisms - even the Vatican. Superorganization is a common denominator factor that, once Group A undertakes it, all other groups are then faced with the choice to follow suit or face the threat of subsumption or destruction by what will prove an irresistible power. This becomes clears some time shortly after Group A consumes Group B, and possibly Group C, after which the rest quickly twig and do what they can to themselves become superorganized. The stark reality is this: China and Russia are the biggest superorganisms in terms of both military might and their blind avarice... after perhaps the USA. The only thing that keeps them respectful is the fact that were they to attack us, they would likely lose, but at the very least would suffer wild losses of every sort. Breaking America up would certainly embolden them, especially the Chinese. And what if, were stoopid California to open its legs to China, post secession? Would the rest of us want huge Chinese bases manned with millions of troops and other means on our borders?

    Good. I heard a lot of complaints when they started allowing foreign truckers in, and basically making them immune to all the U.S. regulations, putting domestic truckers at a disadvantage. Now those same people are going to complain about ending that? Why? Because they're tying that to their crumbling covid conspiracy? Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

    Oh, well. With definitions like that, you can deny everything. Since police departments in this country are ostensibly to protect and serve, cops who shoot dogs aren't a part of the police departments which pay them and issue their uniforms, am I right?

    Interesting. The EU is pretty much dependent on Russian gas to get through the winter. And I'm not just talking heating. Lots of electricity is produced with natural gas too. All those EV's are dependent on Russian gas, really. Something the left probably doesn't want to hear. In any case, it seems we've asked Russia to please grab us by the balls and squeeze tight. This wasn't Putin's doing. "We" did it ourselves.

    Can we agree that nothing really has value ? It's just what people make up. That's the goes for gold and silver as well as bitcoin. In a way it's all one big house of cards but as we're all invested in this world with our bank accounts and assumed future, we cannot do much else then to prop up the house of cards, believe it's all true and hold on for dear life. Agreed ?

    A single bitcoin is worth more than those things, but a satoshi is worth much less than all of those things. There are 100 million satoshis in a bitcoin. The reason is because there are not very many bitcoins, but there are many ounces of gold, platinum, palladium and especially silver. There are also a lot of satoshis compared to bitcoin, therefore they are all much less expensive.

    They can buy it and sell it, but they can't take "complete control". With Fedcoin, they could create it out of thin air and make people use that. That's not what we want. A lot of those larger holders are people who have been in it for a while and support the cause. Also, some of those large holders probably don't have access to their bitcoin anymore. Lost key, etc..

    2009?? Luke Rudkowski said the other night that he had a friend who used to sleep on his couch he was so poor, he is a billionaire now.. ya, that was from early investing, but there are still people making good money with alt coins. However, it is risky and you would need some good luck to strike it like that. But you could have bought $5,000 worth of btc less than 2 years ago and it would be worth $30,000 today.. Or you could have bought $1,000 worth back around 2016 and it would be worth almost $100,000 today.. Of course expert traders are losing money lately, unless they are shorting it.. I am betting in a few years, $35k will seem really cheap for btc, we will see. The fact is digital crypto currency is going to be the thing in the future. Do you want one that is decentralized and is a weapon against the central banking system, or do you want to settle for a fedcoin?

    Did you do a google search? https://www.forbes.com/sites/christopherhelman/2021/08/02/green-bitcoin-mining-the-big-profits-in-clean-crypto/ Also, I'm guessing it is closer to the "lower estimate" When crypto is actually used in practice, bitcoin will likely be worth a lot and there will mostly be large transfers of large quantities between financial institutions. The energy usage won't be a big issue. There will be other cryptos, like litecoin, that will be used for everyday transactions for consumers which use much less energy.

    It's Time to Break Up New York State https://mises.org/wire/its-time-break-new-york-state 01/22/2022Nicolas Gregoris Neil Sedaka said it best – “breaking up is hard to do”. Ask any 16-year-old and they’ll tell you that’s certainly true, but Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) recently made headlines when she suggested not just a breakup, but a “National Divorce” on social media. Of course, there was the typical incoherent shrieking and pearl clutching from progressives, neoconservatives, and other lizard-people, but there was also general acknowledgement from many regular folks that a “National Divorce” may be the only long-term solution. We Need to Talk…

    It took a long time for the addlepated masses to get to this point of understanding, it will take just as long (or maybe not things are happening pretty rapidly) for them to figure out the only way out is a separation that may require a fight.

    All the time, and I've learned to not to take a "I Told You So" posture with these people, but rather: "Yeah I know, what a crime, here's what we need to do about THAT!" I'll take people getting fired up and aware about these things today, finally. Even if you and I knew all about it 20 years ago. It is frustrating as hell though.

    So, the Biden Thing destroys US energy independence on day one, which the ruling class and "science" said was not possible, and then increases imports from Russia to almost 1 million barrels per day, which is high even from high import years before, and then rattles the sabre like we're going to war with them?

    One of the best jobs I ever had was working on the railroad. I didn't work the main line - I was a Locomotive Operator in a steel mill. We worked in one-man crews, so I had a remote control to run the engine and walked the ground to switch, couple and brake. Still miss those days! But hard work! There was a period of time when we worked 12 hour days 7 days a week. Which really meant every day. Brutal. And through bitterly cold winters. But fun!!! I ran a EMD SW1500. 1500 horse power moving tons of molten steel and scrap. For a young man, I couldn't recommend this life enough!

    Everything is made overseas as far as I have seen. I recently looked for winter clothing for a new job. Finally just decided on Carhartt. Bought some water-proof boots, a hoody and a set of Storm Defenders bibs and jacket. As far as quality I can't complain. The boots have performed in mud, rain and snow for 2 months. No leaks. The hoody does a great job with warmth. Sheds light rain/snow. I've only used the bibs and jacket one time. Freezing rain. Kept me warm and dry. If someone asked me on outdoor work wear I'd recommend Carhartt. If someone can recommend an American made company from start to finish let me know. I'd pay more, but it would have to perform as well.
