    One of the most impactful thing I've learned from leaving the culture of the US to living in a large family that is and has always been a part of latin american culture is acceptance is key to my serenity and to me making less unnecessary waves.




    BUT... accept what we now find ourselves in? That's a difficult pill to swallow. I'm at a loss so no direction will ever come from me.

    One aspect in life that is of more importance and value than even "health", is "peace of mind". Serenity NOW! I'm going to take a nap before I listen to this.

    What value did Burisma think to gain by hiring Hunter Biden as a Board member vs ALL other choices?

    Those who cannot articulate the other argument do not fully understand their own argument.

    Wow - what does she know that they want to keep her quiet.

    The two most prominent fields the major crooks come from are finance and attorneys.

    Thomas Jefferson is credited with writing, “When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.” The seceding states in the Civil War period issued a similar declaration using the word “tyranny” as opposed to “injustice.”

    Perhaps one or more of the members in the ' Club' have some financial dealings they would rather not have disclosed. Vampires love the darkness so shedding light on them comes with certain risks.

    Chris Hedges has always been one of my favourites to listen to. Whatever one may think of him and his views he has walked the walk and is of strong moral integrity.

    The Russel 2000 will have lost in excess of 30% of its value in the past 2 years if its current level does not increase in the next 3 weeks.
    Its last high was in 11/12/21. Even if it shows a strong spurt it will be in 2 year bear market by that time. (- 20%+ from last high)

    That is quite a haircut for the companies that many say are more representative of the US domestic economy. They have an average capitalization of $2.85 billion, which is still pretty significant , especially since their P/E's tend to be much lower.

    I am sure they do not have the government connections(pork) of the big boys.

    Interesting that you would take a 30% haircut over the last 2 years in a 'roaring economy', when you hold what should represent, in a significant way, a representative sample of that economy.
    What is even more concerning, the market tends to discount towards what it believes the short term future holds, and not care about the past or present. The trend has not been good.

    quick googlie search for new zealand

    First recorded covid case in Feb,28 2020

    pfizer vaccine first given to cleaners, nurses and security staff Feb 20, 2021 and proceed to general public

    Auckland goes into lockdown Feb 28, 2021. Likely all other cities and town follows suit.
    This should stall the spread of covid and covid death.

    However, there was a 10% increase in death in 2022 compared to 2021. (of course the article didn't link it to vaccination but to covid death in general)
    Shouldn't death count start to spike in 2020 and 2021 when covid was running rampant and knocking out the old and weak first? Instead death count spiked AFTER covid vaccination

    Mannarino and others have said the goal is to terminate them. I would not doubt it, but then, I'm pessimistic about the state of many things.

    US debt which just recently passed $33T is now at $33.6T and growing at $40B per day. Debt will be $34T in 45 days. Worse is the interest payment growth on this debt, which is now larger than the defense budget, and as more debt is added at higher and higher interest rates it will grow exponentially. But no worries, everything is fine and will be just peachy keen, until it isn't.
