    Annually. And it's more like 3% even according to official CPI. But official CPI specifically does not count food, fuel, utilities and the other core costs of a typical American household. The intangible benefit of higher resolution gaming monitors, however, is counted by the official CPI and acts as a discount against inflation because a monitor with more pixels in 2021 akshually counts as 1.5 or 2 lower-resolution monitors from 2015. Therefore, even though the price has risen slightly, you are actually receiving more "hedonic value" per dollar. So inflation seems to be going up but it is akshually going down. :happy: Also, even if your paycheck was raised 3% per year like clockwork (so-called "cost-of-living pay-raise") timing matters. In this table, for the first year, your expenses and income were equal. In the second year, however, expenses rise by 3%. At the end of the second year, because prices have risen, your employer gives you a 3% raise to "offset inflation". Every year after that, both your expenses and your income increase by a 3% annual compound rate -- yet you keep falling further and further behind. This is why I despise the "yeah, but income rises with inflation, too" argument. It's an absolute insult to everyone's intelligence to even make that argument. How stupid do you think people are??

    The vaccines are effective because the government says they're effective. The masks are effective to stop the spread of COVID caused by the vaccines. The "Delta Variant" comes from India, but it also evolved from all of the unvaccinated folks. Staying at home to save lives is doubleplusgood. #AloneTogether Two plus two equals five. We've always been at war with Eastasia.

    Given that's the case, and given that the "elites" know that's the case, what do you think that says about their willingness to close down the schools, apparently indefinitely -- They have no plan beyond this.

    Meh, don't give into the FUD. Yes, these DS clowns are that desperate. But their desperation really just exposes the fact that they themselves are powerless. "Paper tiger" is the best description I can give in words... but that falls very far short of the true extent of it.

    Which is why the interpretation of Scripture is not and never has been a matter of opinion. When it comes to matters of authority (and prophecy is always a matter of authority, Deut. 18:20), it is the ecclesiastical succession and the received tradition -- which are orchestrated by the inner work of the Holy Spirit -- which are definitive (see sigline below). Individual opinions and private interpretations have never been accepted within orthodoxy and never will be. You may be free to think anything you want, but merely having the audacity to speak in the name of God proves absolutely nothing about God or his Word. "Yeah, well why doesn't he strike them with lightning?" Because God is merciful and desires all men to repent of their sins and be saved, that's why. And make no mistake, the lightning is there, held in reserve for the reprobates who knowingly refuse God's love and spit in his face. "Every eye will see him" -- the true power of God will soon be revealed for all to see. "Is it not because I have long been silent that you do not fear me?" (Isaiah 57:11) Boldness and audacity are just a mask the wicked put on to keep up their morale...

    Revelation is not cyclical. The Bible tells a coherent story which, although it is not a simple "linear" progression, is not cyclical either. The apocalyptic prophecies point to a single point in time (or space/time or a hyper-dimensional point or however you choose to think about it) when all of prophecy reaches culmination (fulfillment, fullness, material reality, present-tense tangibility, etc.) The apocalyptic prophecies are not primarily about the material world. Yes, there are many material events foretold in the Bible but the true significance of these events is in what they symbolize, not the physical events themselves. Consider the recent rash of global flooding around the world. These floods have caused many deaths and untold property damage. That is a tragedy, to be sure, but the floods themselves (seen through the prophetic/symbolic lens) are not the "great distress" Jesus prophesied in Matthew 24 -- even if they had occurred at a larger scale, they still would not be that great distress. Sure, they picture or portray that great distress. And for those who are directly affected by them, they are a great distress and it may even be prophetic fulfillment for some of them. The point is that it's incorrect to read Revelation as a sequence of prophecies about the Earth's geology, as if God is very concerned about the planet he created merely to house us (his creatures bearing his image... his offspring). We find such imagery distressing because we well understand how absolutely insignificant and helpless we are relative to the energy scale of the planet. But the distressing material imagery is meant to point us to the distressing spiritual war that is descending on the Earth -- the Great Tribulation, as it is usually called. These floods, earthquakes and other geological events are not, in themselves, the events prophesied in Scripture. Rather, they picture or point to those prophesies -- flooding reminds us (and is meant to remind us) of Noah's flood. That is why, from the perspective of any uninvolved observers, floods happen. Noah's flood, in turn, is the great picture of the coming deluge which is going to engulf the planet -- but this time it will be the spiritual deluge, the global outpouring of the Holy Spirit which will engulf the world in unquenchable flames (see Joel 2:28ff, Matthew 3:11, et. al.) -- this can be seen by simply asking "when did God decide to create the world?" I.e., when in "absolute time", is Genesis 1? The problem is not Genesis, the problem is the assumption of linear, absolute time.

    The wicked live in a delusional world in which they imagine that their crimes cannot be opposed so long as they are sufficiently cautious and clever in how they go about committing them. Long-term planning. Covering your tracks. Ensuring that you are in a position of complete and total advantage vis-a-vis your mark. It is the mindset of the wolf and that is why we refer to them as wolves in sheep's clothing. But it is a delusion. They will either repent of their wicked ways or they will discover the true meaning of the power of God (and, either way, they will acknowledge the power of God). Many of them believe in a god of sorts, some kind of "higher power." But they do not understand the first thing about the power of the living God because, if they did, they would be running away from their wickedness as fast as possible. Every last one of them. "It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God." (Hebrews 10:31) I don't know what is in Fauci's heart but I know that he is working with a lot of truly evil people who are hell-bent on one kind of destructive madness or another. These people are truly insane. I hope he gets right with God as quickly as possible.

    Engelhardt is a roundabout speaker. A forthright statement of his point: debt is not money, nor can it be money apart from the intervention of the State. Why is debt not money? To start with, absolutely no one would have confused debt and money before about 150 years ago. And even after Marxist academics began corrupting the scholarly understanding of money and economics, any John Q. Public on the street would have immediately known the difference between debt and money until at least 50 years ago when the dollar's last tie to gold was cut by Nixon in 1971. But perhaps pre-Marxist people were just confused about money and we needed modern Marxism to straighten us out... The Austrian account of the emergence of money from barter is not necessarily a historical argument. Engelhardt briefly mentions this account of money but says nothing further about it. But it's important to emphasize that the emergence of money from barter is a notional argument, meaning, it's an argument that stands even if it is a historical fiction. "Suppose there was a time when there was no money and humans solely engaged in barter... in that case, this is how money (must have) eventually emerged even from that condition." So even if there has never been a time that humans did not use something as money, the Austrian account of the emergence of money from barter is a sound argument. In that case, it's a reductio ad absurdum, because even if you start with a society without a money commodity, very quickly, you have a society that is using a money commodity. Debt lacks almost all of the properties that we now recognize are key to the emergence of a money commodity from barter. Debt is not fungible because every debtor is unique. Debt is not divisible because each debt is an indivisible "legal claim" against the debtor. Debt is not durable because debtors can die, become disabled or destitute or go into default. The liquidity of debt is subject to extreme fluctuations based on legal and political uncertainty because the collection of debt instruments is logically dependent on their enforceability in court -- if your country is taken over by socialists and these socialists declare "all debts are hereby dissolved", then all those IOUs in your vault have become completely worthless overnight. So the idea that debt is money or even could be money (apart from the say-so of the State) is ludicrous. If anything, debt is an illusion. Combined with the multiplication of corporate entities that can hold debt, debt can be manufactured without limit. Debt-as-money creates a kind of "fully privatized central bank" (operated by the commercial banking system) and this results in unbounded inflation as anyone who can create a corporation and take on debt in the name of that corporation is thereby able to print their own money.
