America’s “Lazy Investor” Problem, April Looms

There’s little in economic news today.  And certainly, in the “news flow” only a few things project forward as interesting and worthy of your attention.

Which leaves time to be entertained by the Court System and high-profile cases.  Like Business Insider’s coverage in Everything You Need to Know About Musk’s ‘Funding-Secured’ Trial.

Reading through the case, an interesting thought occurred:  Is this case an example of a whole country becoming “Lazy Investors?”

The high-level view is that a group of investors has sued Elon Musk for claiming  “Funding-Secured” for the sale of Tesla.  When the deal didn’t happen, the investors got angry and “lawyered up.”  It goes to Court, and we all watch.

However, as a compulsive gambler myself – who has learned Day Trading can be done anywhere, has lower Covid risks, and no floor shows compared with Las Vegas – it seems to me the folks in court may be “lazy.” Poor losers.

To us they’re very much like Crypto investors.  Everyone wants something for nothing these days.  Because we living in a world where “the money” – not the utility or the core values matter.  No sir: it’s all about “the dough” and in the spirit of both Woke and the “Full Employment for Lawyers Act” here come the lawsuits.

It’s a gross oversimplification in my head today:  But “piling on to a hot stock” is not “investing.”  See, there is an “art” to actual investing that goes way beyond the “pile on” to this week’s hot stock on the story of a takeover to come.

Tesla overvalued?  Is Tesla a good car?  Yes, but while it works in urban areas, a Tesla can’t drive east to west across Texas.  There’d have to be a long charging stop along the way, see?  In an ICE or Hybrid, it’s almost a non-stop trip with one or two 5-minute fill-ups and kidney unwinders.

I’m pointing out (and this is very anti-woke, pro-science of me) that America’s fascination (*if not predilection) is the quest for Silver Bullets, sure things, free money for all, and no due diligence required. Dream the f**k on.

Work still matters.

Truth About “Investing”

There is risk Elon Musk, very likely excited as a proud pappa of his first major auto company may have very likely overstated financial commitments when he said “funding secured” on one day only to see it evaporate, shortly thereafter.

Shit happens in business.  It’s the way it works.

People who “piled on” buying Tesla stock were l0oking for free money.  Sorry, sport.  Game doesn’t work that way.  As we remind everyone through various website disclaimers, we do not offer advice – only a unique perspective and some odd approaches to research.  What our readers actually DO with our advice is 100% up to them.

Musk is in a somewhat similar situation, except that he’s a more successful showman that me.  As such, he touts what he sincerely believes his product benefits are and – at any moment – where the company is going.  But, investing in his company should not be seen as a guarantee of profit.  Ever look at their numbers critically?

It’s taken me more than 50-years of market speculation to be able to see things clearly. You don’t just wake up one more a winner.  Takes a ton of work.

My latest trade, 500 shares of a Bear side ETF was entered at 12:07 PM EST Monday.  The position was ahead a few dollars at the close Monday.  It will likely be up a few more bucks at the open today – maybe even enough to pay for a good dinner out.

BUT THERE’S NO GUARANTEES.  I can still lose my ass.  My exit is likely to be suboptimal.  Investing, understand, is largely mathematics with far less importance of transient “NEWS” than people think.

The same Greed is rolling over in Crypto Land, though.  People are all hot for the “free money.”  Scanning stories like this – First Ethereum Mainnet Shadow Fork Goes Live Before Shanghai (beincrypto.com) – are all over the place.  But is it a good investment?

Depends where you look and if you can take in an alternative view and make good judgments:  Gemini Continues Layoff Train (cryptodaily.co.uk).  At the same time, though, BTC was still trading a shade under $23,000 at clicktime. Go figure.

Our Crypto view has been remarkably steady: It’s a GAMBLE. Swindle, sure and Ponzi scheme, too. There’s zero book value. Make up a 27-digit number, write it to a .txt file.  Think anyone will give you $23-large for it?

Investors (like Warren Buffett and his partner Charlie Munger) know better.  As the Motley Fool reported last year: “On more than one occasion, he’s made his voice heard on how he believes the cryptocurrency is worthless and holds no intrinsic value. But his 2.3% stake in Nubank gives him indirect exposure to the asset.”  Book value means something to Buffett, see?

A Business History Lesson

It’s unlikely you can name a single winning miner from California’s 1848 Gold Rush.  We do know one company that made a fortune in the Gold Rush, though:  Levi Strauss.  They made the denim clothing the miners needed starting in 1853. As we learned in grad school, Strauss was “mining the miners” – and it rhymes with Buffett and Munger’s NuBank position.  Following?

Look, I don’t mean to bore you with how real economics works, but there is speculation (gambling) which is what I enjoy.  Then there is “pile on with the herd” with greed in your heart. Which, as I figure it, has driven Tesla, Bitcoin, and many other “hot” “speculative opportunities.” But they’re not “investments.” As such, if you want to believe a pot smoking CEO, you get what you get.

That’s what’s on trial in America now:  Money for nothing and your chicks for free.

Woke, entitled, free-luncher’s abound and it won’t end gently. Musk is in dire straits.  I won’t predict Musk will lose.  But there’s a mob (woke whiners) with greed in their eyes, looking for an oak tree and holding ropes.

The Woke Mob has turned on Musk.  The mob is piling on to an anti-Musk agenda at the periphery – it’s what mobs do.

But it’s also not an isolated event.  Digital lynch mobs are forming all over the world: European official warns Musk era of ‘Wild West’ for free speech is over: ‘There will be sanctions’ | CLG News (legitgov.org). Sanctions attacking Free Speech?  Will the dweebs of Davos Weffers ban questioning bugs to banish beef?

Call the Federal Trade Commision:  I want my $5-million “Truth in Advertising reparations settlement.”  Land of the FREE my butt.  Defend and protect, ditto.  This was sold at virtually all of the edumacating centers. Funded by the government and doesn’t that make them subject to Product Liability suits?

Further to April

Future is bifurcating.  Mentioned in the Monday column that some remote viewer types are looking out to April (first week to 2nd half) when something Big will happen, by their processes.

Several readers point to the story out that the Earth’s Core has stopped rotating.  In fact, it may be starting to turn the other wayEarth’s inner core may have started spinning other way: Study (phys.org)

This would fit with some of the vision described in the Monday piece.  But more to the point, does this perhaps drive OTHER cycles?

I didn’t put a link up to Joe Brandt’s dream about California sliding into the Pacific, but here’s a starting point: In 1937 Joe Brandt saw an Earthquake sink Los Angeles, much of California and Japan. An event anywhere in the March-June window would “fit” with this vision.

Keep an eye on G.A. Stewart’s site for any updates to the Rare Birds phrase.  Because on sites like Astronomy Calendar of Celestial Events 2023 – (seasky.org) we find on April 22-23 the Lyrids meteor shower is due.  20, or more, meteors per hour.  Statistics are that eventually a large one will be in the mix. How big?  No telling.  Smallish, we hope.

Watching the future resolve one path, or another? That’s our fascination:  How a date or time-range is voted by group expectations of humanity acting as the collective Quantum Observer will resolve among these choices is a Great Work worthy of study.

All the more reason we’re working on what kind of earth sheltered home the late Mike Oehler might have built for the occasion were he still around. Great guy, visionary books.

On which cheerful note, we will be back in a flash, or on Thursday.  A decision regrettably above our pay grade.

  1. Good piece as usual. However: I would say you should probably not use the word “advice” again even though you suggest it is up to your audience whether or not to use it. Giving advice in my biz means you are acting as an advisor and that is a problem – providing observations is inocuous and part of a general conversation. Just sayin.

  2. There was a discussion of the book The Fourth Turning on the recent Urban Survival post. For those not familiar with the book, it was published in 1997 and describes (1). the Cycles a Country or Civilization goes through. It is much like Kondratiev (Kondratieff’s) (2.) Long Wave/Short wave Cycles, or Joseph Schumpeter, an economist who coined the term ‘Creative Destruction’ in 1942, while going into his (3.) Theory of Innovation Cycles which examined the current state of innovation as it related to long-wave business cycles, or (4.) Elliott Wave Theory which we know that George often discusses and uses. All wave cycles, or history repeats itself based upon certain events and timelines.

    After the internet emerged in the early 1990s, barriers to a lot of information were eliminated. New media like Facebook, Twitter, and Blogs changed political discourse, news cycles, and communication. The internet ushered in a new frontier of globalization, a borderless landscape of digital information flows. Technological innovations boosted economic growth and improved living standards through the spread of knowledge. This can all be identified as Schumpeter’s 5th Wave.

    However, these disruptors led to monopolies. During a cycle’s upswing, the strongest players realize wide margins, establish iron walls and moats to protect their business, and fight off and destroy rivals. Greed, arrogance, sociopathic personalities come forth that think their wealth is correlated to their brainpower. This is the WEF, the Bill Gates and Fauci type of egoist, and the globalists that are pushing the socialism and communism that we are increasingly hearing today under different nomenclatures.

    Never has the world been so intricately connected. Information is more centralized than it has ever been. Big Tech dominates global search traffic, social networks, advertising, and people’s behaviors except for those of us who never signed up for the DARPA/3 Letter Agencies fronted social media platforms that are also used to track every thought, friend, and locale of the people that use it every day.

    Like the big tech companies of today dominating the majority of the NASDAQ, the rail industry had the same power to control prices and push out competitors during the 19th century. Listed shares of rail companies on the New York Stock Exchange made up 60% of total stock market capitalization. Look at the top 10 NASDAQ companies today and their caps, relative to the rest of the NASDAQ.

    If one believes in the posits of The Fourth Turning book, we are already at a point of inflection where there will either be mass innovation as described in Schumpeter’s 6th Wave, or we are at the point of mass annihilation and a subsequent restart as described below in The Fourth Turning on Page 350.

    On page 350 of The Fourth Turning, it states:

    “All you know in advance is something about the molten ingredients of the climax, which could include
    1. Economic distress, with public debt in default, entitlement trust funds in bankruptcy, mounting poverty and unemployment, trade wars, collapsing financial markets, and hyperinflation (or deflation).
    2. Social distress, with violence fueled by class, race, nativism, or religion and abetted by armed gangs, underground militias, and mercenaries hired by walled communities.
    3. Cultural distress, with the media plunging into a dizzying decay, and a decency backlash in favor of state censorship.
    4. Technological distress, with cryptoanarchy, high-tech oligarchy, and biogenetic chaos.
    5. Ecological distress, with atmospheric damage, energy or water shortages, and new diseases.
    6. Political distress, with institutional collapse, open tax revolts, one- party hegemony, major constitutional change, secessionism, authoritarianism, and altered national borders.
    7. Military distress, with war against terrorists or foreign regimes equipped with weapons of mass destruction.”

    We have checked all 7 boxes under The Fourth Turning. You can fill in the blanks on every number described above with items that hit you in the face daily from around planet. And if the book is right, the final climax of the America as we knew it is near.

    Schumpeter proposed that we evolved into a 5th Wave but we are now opening the start of the 6th Wave, marked by artificial intelligence and digitization across information of things (IoT), robotics, and drones which will paint an entirely new picture. The automation of systems, PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS, and data processing will make a huge impact. The time to complete tasks could shift from hours to even seconds. There is however something about those people that have Predictive Analytical abilities via either innate abilities, having access to AI, or both can also do. Even Elon Musk sees the possibilities of linking the human brain and AI. Or is he being fed another possible objective from intelligence sources to bring to the marketplace. And it has to do with the 6th Wave.

    Unfortunately evil is taking over Schumpeter’s 6th Wave. Drones and robots are being designed to capture more and more and more…be it land mass, money, control, power, or knowledge (like free energy) that is not shared with mankind because of all the oil companies, electric generation companies, green energy companies, and countries that sell the products related to these monopolies would go out of business. This also applies to captured alien technology that is only being used by the “elites” and for advanced military applications rather than for the benefit of mankind.

    Sure, there are robotic vacuum cleaners and AI that drives cars, some off of cliffs, and auto-landing systems on jets. Those humans with Predictive Analytical capabilities in various forms and degrees of abilities know that there are forces that are at play that will affect all outcomes. Those forces of both earth and space include Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Volcanic eruptions, space anomalies including solar events, and advances in analytical and applied physics including parallel universes and multiple timelines. And the time is coming when they will displace evil plans. Hard to believe destruction can have a positive outcome, but it will refocus governments and people away from conquest and war to rebuilding and taking care of human misery and displacement.

    Unfortunately, the current humanoid species has people representing planet Earth that grab all that can be grabbed via whatever means. Whether it be Babylonian fractional reserve banking systems where they create money out of air to steal the land and water and stocks and commodities, rigged commerce and markets, or the ultimate grab…WAR, they want it all. There are other forces at play other than those used by the sociopaths and psychopaths that are leading us to total destruction. Events will come very soon that will “wake up the world” to revolt against the lying and greed and ultimately bring true spirituality into play for those that survive.

    • It’s always the best/worst of times.

      My uncle was on Belle Isle the day the 1943 Detroit race riot started. He left the island about an hour before the sailor was tossed. He said he could tell it was going to happen.

      Detroit was mostly white and they did not want blacks integrated and fought with chains and bats to keep them out. People lost eyes and even died for their cause. A real Donnybrook.

      No comparison to anything today. Soon after they began platting the farms for future subdivisions, the suburbs. That’s how intense.

    • Human civilization exists because of greed and conflict. Anthropologists and military historians believe social groups, largely agrarian, banded together for protection from roving bands of nomads. Concentrating the population offered greater protection against such aggressors. Building fences, then walls and finally cities fortified an evolving defensive mindset. Maintaining this level of group protection involved much labor and resources. Taxes to fund the nation, its elite and the military soon became the norm. War took conflict beyond defending against nomads, elevating it to its next evolutionary step, pitting one city-state against another, as each competed for or defended their most coveted resources. The quest for and management of these resources led to the first economies. The seemingly natural evolution of this social model gave us the world as we know it in the 21st Century, where an elite class still, after 5000+ years, controls and manipulates the availability of various key resources, using their social status and, when necessary, their militaries to defend those resources . . . or use those armies to annex/steal coveted resources from another nation. Sadly, humanity is so terribly predictable. The fundamental model for human social conflict hasn’t changed much over the millennia, just the size of the city/states and the destructive technologies developed and deployed by the players.

      • “To robbery, slaughter and plunder, they give the lying name of empire; they create a wilderness and call it peace.”
        – Calgacus, AD 84

        • Oxfords translation of Calgacus is a little better I think…

          “To ravage, to slaughter, to usurp under false titles, they call empire; and where they make a desert, they call it peace. — Oxford Revised Translation””They plunder, they slaughter, and they steal: this they falsely name Empire, and where they make a wasteland, they call it peace”

          Just look what we have done.. take the Ukraine conflict..in the name of peace we have given arms and pushed for the decimation of a country to the point now that I doubt seriously a farmer would be able to go plant in the spring.. homes cities.. infrastructure and the nightmares the loss of life.. all because of greed..

  3. I got to meet Mr. Oehler at a Preparedness Expo in Portland, OR way back in 1991 or so. (With a Gun Show going on next door at the same time. Good times!) A very kind and patient gent, and a quietly brilliant man. He took several minutes to talk to a very eager but ignorant young man with patience, warmth and kindness. I never forgot the chat, and still read his books regularly. One of a kind to be sure.

    Our minds have been conditioned to think inside the gravity well we live in. We do not see the true effect as it occurs in a vacuum, free/outside of Earth’s gravity well.

  7. Anyone familiar with the work of G.I. Gurdjieff?

    Man’s Situation on the Earth

    Let us review for a moment the present state of the world and the present ideals that dominate people in regard to making this planet a better world. You see on one side inventions such as penicillin and many other similar things which are of benefit to mankind, and on the other hand you see the inventions of destructive agents such as poison gas, atomic bombs, and so on. For everything that is invented of a beneficial nature, there seems to be invented an opposite of a harmful nature. Man, feeling that he can do, does not see this continual contradiction. He does not see that he is living in a world under a definite number of laws that cannot be changed. It is as if there were always the same amount of everything and if a thing is got rid of in one place it appears again in another place…. This idea that we live in a contained world of this kind, a prison under a definite number of laws, is not understood. The Work says, amongst other things, that the Earth is a pain-factory from which a certain quantity of pain and suffering is demanded. People believe that medicine is going to do away with illness but what happens actually is that if a relative cure for one thing is found you will practically always find that some other illness increases….

    Can you mention a single law that you are under? I am not talking about man-made laws but about laws belonging to this Earth on which we appear for a brief period. One of these laws is that you have to eat. If you don’t eat you die. This is a law. Another law is that you have to breathe oxygen. If you do not breathe oxygen, or if you breathe carbon monoxide from a charcoal-stove, you die. This is a law belonging to this planet. Yet, curiously enough, we do not see ourselves as being under laws of this kind and imagine ourselves as being quite free and able to do exactly as we like. In other words, we do not reflect upon the nature of our lives on this Earth. And we have the constant illusion that we can do—i.e. that we can alter everything in our favor. And because we have this illusion that we can do, we have also the equally firm illusion that we are progressing and that the mere passage of time means that we all get better and better and more and more comfortable. We regard things like wars as exceptions, just as we regard illnesses as exceptions, not seeing that they are the rule, and belong to our level of Being.

    What is the way out from this prison in which these laws constantly interact and play on humanity like a set of different-colored spotlights? The Work, the Gospels, and all esoteric teaching say the same thing: to begin to escape from these 48 orders of laws governing this planetary prison called the Earth a man must cease to see the final solution in changing external conditions but must see it in changing himself.

  8. WTF happened to Ure overnight ? Seems you done flipped over current wave, and woke up on new one.. Or is it just Ure Saturn “cycle taking control? No worries youll be back again and again and again – and not remember a dam thing about being someone/things “Pet”.

    “Divine Intervention” my ass, most peeps cant even define what “dude/god” is – beyond what they have been told, let alone understand or will Divinity.

      it’s interesting that most people experience say 2019 was terrible, 2020 was horrible, 2021 what the fuck? and 2022 Holy crap!

      And my 2019. Rad
      2020 omg so awesome!
      2021 I’m having the time of my life!
      2022. whoooaaa. this is fucking outstanding.

      when I made my board for 2020. every single thing I made on it came true for me. even the girl I dated for 6 months looked exactly like the girl on my board 2 years prior. she was even wearing the exact same identical earrings as the girl on my vision board the day i met her.

      every year of my personal seems to be getting more and more amazing.

      the world and most peoples opinion of it not so much.

      life is what you make it. I’m having a really really good time.

      just had Lunch with a beautiful red head. absolutely take your breath away beautiful. and she was all over me.

      and all the places I’ve stayed in the last month because I am in transit so much. all have massive food closets with enough stored food and water to last 5 years in them for more than 4 people. everywhere I stay? there is plenty.

      so I don’t know George. April? right now hustle and grind. pick and choose. hustle and grind.

      • April could be a woman. not a date George. not sure if you considered that. April could be a personality as much as a time slot.

        wonder how much all this money swimming around the economy is big pharma propping it up. like a war. war drivin economy’s are similar. artificial stimulus into the economy based on perception.

        terms like pandemic and vaccine are the Melinial replacement catch phrazes for the previos generations catch phrases of “Weapens of Mass Destruction” and “terrorism” that fueled 2 US wars for 20 years. I might add, which we never found. anddddddddd nobody give a single shit about that. even tho the US committee many crimes against humanity and itself.

        and now up in arms about Russia. dumb.

        I say, give peace a chance. lol

        2023 is an odd year.

        as my late uncle said to me when passing a transvestite on Capitol Hill in the early morning on our way to work when I was a young man after i said look at that chick! wonder if she is single?!!!!

        he looked at me and smiled, said, ahhhh young man the odds are good but the good are odd.

  16. After 3 years of dodging the bullet, I have joined the COVID team. I am sure mine is nowhere near as bad as LOOB’s or Hank’s but boy it sure sucks. The irony is that it is 3 years to the day that I watched Chinese president Xi make the claim “we have a grave situation here” and cancelled our bought and paid for vacation to Jamaica, missing the refund cutoff date by 1 day and eating $8,000.

    I have been double vaxed and double boosted with the last booster being the bi-valent. I talked to my doctor this morning and he has started me on a 5 day regiment of Plaxovid, removing me from statin and blood thinner meds which interact with Plaxovid. I promise to update the group after a couple of days as to how this works out. Meantime, a lot of time in bed.

    I do want to comment on one thing before I go back to bed. I had the misfortune to turn on the news last night for a few minutes and heard a winey Democrat comment on the “mostly peaceful” riots in Atlanta this past weekend. She called it “justifiable violence!” AYFKM

      Ivermectin is still the best, Plaxovid is a knock off to make money.

      Be warned, it may not work, (of 2 people who I have known that took it, once said it worked, one said it did nothing) but keep up with the protocol of Vit D3 and K2, if you can get it (without soybean oil), Vitamin C, Zinc, Selenium, B12, and mouthwash used to stop the sinus drip which gives you a break from the coughing.

      Many people on here have given their recommendations, my memory is failing me.

  17. “on sites like Astronomy Calendar of Celestial Events 2023 we find on April 22-23 the Lyrids meteor shower is due. 20, or more, meteors per hour. Statistics are that eventually a large one will be in the mix. How big? No telling. Smallish, we hope.”

    It’s been many years, but I believe 1215 is the magic number:

    A direct impact by a meteorite that’s roughly spherical and 1215 ft in diameter is an ELE. No animal of any species will survive the impact, save only by random chance — same as with a Yellowstone eruption, only worse because Yellowstone blowing its top will shroud Earth in dust for ~40 years and cause an ice age, the dust cloud from the meteorite may last for centuries. Most plants don’t grow without sunlight…

    • “How do all of these guys [ and gals, most likely ] walk away with so damn many classified and top secret documents ?”

      In their underwear and socks. They (up to and including Vice Presidents) go into a locked, video-surveilled room in the basement of the Capitol, then request *.docs from a catalog. A “clerk” with a higher security clearance than anyone else in the room brings them the requested documents. They examine the *.docs, then leave and the clerk retrieves the folder and returns it to the archive from which it came.

      The room has one camera, so to steal a document, the congresscritter in the room has to pick the document up, then walk over to the wall upon which the camera is located (thus into its blind spot) and secret the document on his(her) person. I’d guess the person picks up a sheaf of papers, then paces around the room reading them, perhaps stopping to lean occasionally against a wall.

      ‘Point is: It is not possible for classified documents to be “accidentally” taken from a SCIF. Ergo, either there’s a BUNCH of lightfingered congresscritters, or there’s a spook who’s trying to frame some politicians, or perhaps diminish the significance of Biden’s crimes.

  21. Been reading many of the interesting links you provide and there’s an undertone inherent in some of it. We’ve been programmed to be alert to certain words that stand out, but don’t always notice the undertone. Kinda like a vibration but it’s hard to hear the sound it’s making because those certain words are noisy and loud.

    One link mentioned that the past repeats its self but not exactly. It repeats in rhyme. I’ve always believed that. Which is why most people are still waiting for WWIII to break out … when in actuality it already has. Not as we are programmed to expect, because it’s a rhyme. Thus, can’t see the forest for the trees.

    It’s interesting that we here, internally call for defunding the police. America has been referred to as the world police. – think about that for a bit. Sure we print money like hell won’t have it but, we (our country) are being defunded. Fact is, we aren’t ready to defund and get rid of cops for several reasons. Likewise, America still has its importance … but little by little … pressure to subdue.

    Then there’s the White Guys are bad, thing. Refers to colonialism types, (but don’t go punish them) more so than the average guy. Makes no sense. –
    I really believe someone in this crazy chess game believe Hawaiians still own Hawaii, and thank God for that. There is some discretion.

    China has a history of honor, regardless of their more recent faults. Martial Arts are more a defense than an offense practice. Of course, it can go either way. Generally, opponent’s choice. When there is no opponent, the practice is, meditation.

    Russia is a conquering nation. Their history is quite brutal, but that’s their nature. They tried to play the game of the past couple hundred years … took two steps foreword and found themselves 4 steps back. They lost their trust, and I guess that’s understandable. Can’t blame them for wanting a refund.

    Here, we have all these freedoms and people taking personal liberties to the point where insanity is ok. England actually started the revolution years ago in our culture, with crazy outlandish stylish things … from where the Queen is always so proper but her guards will trample you and the children who have gotten in the way of their changing.

    We are simply followers of the least resistance, in our conquest to resist the establishment. – which in global conquests, has pissed off a good portion of the world. They don’t want that shit. This ain’t what our Founders intended. This, is a mess.

    We were much better off when we were old fashion and industrializing towards new technologies. But there were those who did business with no integrity … kinda like the removal of ethics from healthcare, today. It just fucked everything up. Politics, bureaucrats, special interests and greased palms, greased the slide we’re on. Technologies are kept secret, just so someone can feel superior?

    “Energy is the basis for civilization” someone said. – Energy is also the basis for a culture, when you compartmentalize it. Notice how we’re being isolated? Absolutely intentional.

    And Notice, avian flu doesn’t cross certain borders, – and cows only fart in NATO countries. That’s fuckin weird.

    So those with energy have applied pressure, with persistence to put folks/cultures in check. Dwindling capacity, increasing weakness, while we give away what’s left of our resources and equipment. Being in debt sucks, as you can see.

    This may very well have delayed a nuclear and/or a terrorist attack, but I can’t say it will completely deny an event. – people just don’t wanna do that shit anymore.

    Point is, while we sit around expecting the worst case scenario, the undertones are calling for changes to be made. Voices use the word “reparations” … but the Universe is simple calling for a repentance and a willingness not to repeat the past mistakes, globally. If not, we cannot move foreword.

    But you know how that usually goes … so I’m siding with, “what will be, will be.”

    The term, “end of winter” is floating around. Hopefully, we can blossom into a peaceful springtime.

  30. “Earth’s inner core may have started spinning other way”

    Not much to worry about here. From the paper:

    “We believe the inner core rotates, relative to the Earth’s surface,
    back and forth, like a swing” (this has already happened in our lifetime)
    And
    “So far there is little to indicate that what the inner core does has
    much effect on surface dwellers.”

    I see there is also talk again of a Pole Flip (conspiracist hype) which conjures up images of massive earth changes. No. This is a deeply misleading term for a magnetic reversal which causes the locations of the north and south magnetic poles to switch (not the geographic poles) and has happened many times in the history of the earth. The reversal process is not literally periodic as it is on the sun, whose magnetic field reverses every 11 years. The time between magnetic reversals on the Earth is sometimes as short as 10,000 years and sometimes as long as 25 million years; the time it takes to reverse is only about 5,000 years.

    We are likely already experiencing this very slow reversal which will continue for thousands of years. This does result in a weakening of our magnetic shield which protects us from solar and cosmic radiation. So cosmic radiation levels will increase as they have in the past.

    I won’t be losing any sleep over this.
