“Official” Jobs Data – Hypology

Just out from the Labor Department:

“Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 1.8 million in July, and the unemployment rate fell to 10.2 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. These improvements in the labor market reflected the continued resumption of economic activity that had been curtailed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and efforts to contain it. In July, notable job gains occurred in leisure and hospitality, government, retail trade, professional and business services, other services, and  health care.”

Seriously?

Total Number of people working:  Up 1.3 million for the month.  But, year on year still down at 91.22% of 2019 employment levels.

But is it really that good?  Since in the CES Birth-Death Model we see 241,000 jobs were estimated into existence.

Here’s the real disconnect for us:

  • Almost 9% fewer Americans are working.
  • Last year on this date our Aggregate stock index was 24,441.91.
  • Thursday’s close was 30,005.27
  • So the market is up?  22.7%!

Reason?  We look at the Fed Money Stocks as the culprit:

July 2019 the Fed reports M2 supplies of 14.8621-trillion dollars.  In the most recent report? 18.2864 trillion is sloshing around. 23% more money!  Whee!

We will note (logically) that if the market is up 22.7% and the M2 money stocks are up 23% there is literally no real growth.  And 9% fewer people working.

Are we having fun, yet?

Later Today

International trade data at 10 Eastern and 3 PM this afternoon the Fed’s consumer debt report.  That could move things.

After the job numbers, the Dow futures were only down 32 and trying to turn up.

More free money!  Whee!

Joe OBiden

My friend Gaye Levy (https://strategiclivingblog.com) and I were talking Thursday about the next book we’re working on.  (Out just after the election, since that will be the “tone setter” for which forks this ongoing collapse takes…)

She slipped and said “O…Biden...” while we were dissecting the political realms.  I loved it….

Use it freely.  OBiden.  Because if Biden gets in, it will be like the Obama years.

Trumpt?  Or Choreography?

The American Lefticy is retweeting the hell out of the goings on in NY where a “Judge [ruled]: Trump Rape Accuser Can Go Ahead With Defamation Suit.”

What were we talking about Thursday?  Trump talking himself out of a job.  Open mouth, insert….  On  the other hand?

Details and Contexts Matter

While Trump’s accuser is identified in many reports as a “democrat,” we always wonder to what degree when a political afilliation is claimed.  Since we found this on OpenSecrets.org, we’d (irresponsibly speculate) that the accuser as a “serious democrat.”  And you know what Emily’s List is about, right? “...Together, we can elect more pro-choice Democratic women – up and down the ballot.

This whole story makes us feel…sketchy.  Was there actually a police report filed?  Not sure if that ever happened...since a short time later USA Today reported in June 2019 that “… Carroll did not report the incident to the police.”  That was on June 25, 2019.

Just the day before though, June 24, 2019, USA Today (which you’ll remember endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016) had done an opinion pieceAre we bored with rape? I hope not. Jean Carroll’s Trump allegation deserves attention. ‘Joe Biden accused of standing too close’ is apparently a way bigger story than ‘Donald Trump accused of raping a public person in a public place.‘.”  It all fit too neatly into the political attack on Justice Kavanaugh, at the time.

I’m just a dumb one-time big city news exec.  But you know what?  When an opinion piece comes out ahead of a “big” news piece…the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

More pertinent?  The problem with DNA claims is that unless DNA from both sides is processed by a disinterested (bonded and liable)  third party, the whole thing’s a joke.  Chain of evidence, right?  Nope – this is about defamation and whether Trump slurred the woman…

No…wait….just maybe it’s political choreography.  88-days to go.

Open Mouth, Insert Foot – Again

Market down earlier? Blame Trump! Futures Slide After Trump Opens A “Most Unwelcome Can Of Worms” With TikTok, WeChat Executive Order.  Will any media credit him if we skyrocket up – again?

Gee, couldn’t have anything to do with the jobs data, could it? Screaming piles of paper debt awaiting the Bonfire of the Equities?

Notwithstanding, all in favor of a Constitutional Amendment to limit presidential tweets to 3-per 24-hour period, please raise your hand?

(*Unless someone credible (able to exercise “tweet control”) shows up in the next 88 days, I’m writing-in Dr. Ben Carson…)

In the Punch Bowl

You know what goes in the punchbowl, right?

Classroom rebellion seen in “Extra credit for masks? With no mandates at their schools, teachers urge students to wear them.”  Discrimination loophole?  Where’s that legal?

Election under lockdown continues to be controversial as Facebook extends coronavirus work from home policy until July 2021. More on point: Lawsuits Challenge Ohio’s Mail Voting Security Policy, Access.

Storm aftermath: AAA: No fuel shortage in CT after Isaias, but power outages could affect some stations.

Cheaper than who?  Skyrocketing gun sales trigger US ammo shortage. Maybe I’m just a lucky gunner, too.

Roots of the Ure’s

If you have never used it, there’s a wealth of information about long-gone people – such as early relatives – that may be found in the extensive records of federal government’s extensive archives.  Turns out, there was a Ure in American history even before there was much of a country:

“Gosport, 26 May 1791. Duff as master and Masterman as chief mate of Rachel swear that Thomas Ure swore in their presence and before John Wilkes, notary, in New York on 8 Sep. 1790 that he was a bona fide American of New York and agreed to ship as boatswain on Rachel to London and elsewhere and return at the rate of $9 per month, part of which was to be paid to his wife, monthly, during the voyage; that, on the morning of 27 Apr. 1791, Ure refused to do duty and, contrary to Duff’s orders, absented himself “and hath not since returned.”

Several things of interest historically here.  First, it was common for ships to be women’s names in that era.  You’ll remember the ship  Charlotte was the one found icebound in the movie National Treasure.

Second is how many ships in that part of history were named “Rachel.”

The Plot Thickens…

Wait…so Thomas Ure no-showed for a sailing adventure under master Nicholas Duff aboard the Rachel?

Turns out, our ne’er do well progenitor seems to have been playing both sides of the War for Independence.  Check this out:

“Joshua Johnson to Philip Stephens
London 25 [i.e. 26] May 1791

Sir
A Person stiling himself the King’s Solicitor, having on the 19 Instant, in company with a Tide Surveyor, and two of his Officers, gone on board the American Brigantine Rachel, Nicholas Duff, Master, now in Portsmouth Harbour, tho’ outward bound to New York, and having affixed what he called an Admiralty Paper on the Main Mast, signed by Thomas Ure, and sundry other of her Crew who had ran away from her, and entered into the King’s Service in the Navy, and having delivered her the said Brigantine, and Cargo, into the charge of the said Officers, with a threat, in six Days to return, and sell as much of her Cargo as will pay the said Deserters their Wages, which they have forfeited by their Articles with the Captain, in consequence of their said Desertion, which Deserters had all entered on board of her as Americans.

I am to request as Consul of the United States of America, that the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, will give instant, and effectual Orders to put an immediate stop to the perpetration of so insolent an Outrage, and I doubt not, their Lordships will see the propriety of putting a check to Practices that have a tendency so alarming to the present amicable Sentiments of the United States of America towards Great Britain.

I beg to have the honor of an Answer as soon as possible, and remain with due Consideration Sir Your most Obedient Humble Servant,

[Joshua Johnson]

Whew!

It seems genetically, the Ure clan’s American division were a bit opportunistic...claiming citizenship under one condition and flipping sides as a convenience.  Not terribly uncommon in the era.  Doesn’t look good on the family tree, though.

Last, having lived on my own (American-flagged) sailing vessel for over a decade, I’m amazed that anyone with the name Ure would skip a chance to go sailing.

Yo, ho, ho and a…

Long-Chain Thinking is what this is about.

You may be wondering how I stumbled into the part-time turncoat back down the family tree?  Aye, there lies a tale to be told, indeed.

To begin, Andrew Ure, wrote a book called  “The Philosophie of Manufactures.” Which as it turns out, was of interest to a fellow by the name of Charles Babbage.

Babbage turned around and wrote (about 1832 if I’m tracking it right…) another book called On the Economy of Machinery and Manufactures.”

Lost Yet?

We’re working towards a longer-term research piece for our  Peoplenomics subscribers.  Because Babbage, effectively the inventor of modern computer thought, in this book on machines lays out a “system of classification.”

And THAT, dear reader, will become crucial to our future as a race of bipeds shortly.  We are moving toward taxes on production, not human labor.

Recall that Russia is already considering a 13% tax on the output of machines.

Tax the Damn Machines!

It’s clear to us (based on today’s Jobs data) that we are miles from addressing the economic paradox of taxes revenues based on Human Labor (income taxes).  Will AI‘s have to pay tax on their (hugely profitable) intellectual property outputs? We’re certain they should be taxed.

We can’t just keep making up money – Modern Monetary Theory is a hoax. It ONLY works if there are no externalities.  You have been seeing how “dollar alternatives like Gold and Silver have been doing lately, right?  MMT is a broken formula that can’t withstand a mark to market.  Maybe in isolation…but does that describe the globalist world of competing currencies today?

Obvious to us is the need to “balance the books” and this is precisely where our interest in earliest books conceptualizing economics of “manufacturing” comes from.

Because when all the jobs are gone, we humans are at risk of perishing, as well.

  1. yeah at least you try to make sense of the madness and lies George .. its embedded globally and starts in the great swamp amerika .. yep show no mercy to the rats when the day comes .. it will . always does

    • Crazy as it seems, the Federal Reserve system is run by folks without integrity so the theory of treating “money” as though it were as easy to come by as picking leafs off of trees and calling them “dollars.” It is easy peasey because for them, there is no shortage of leafs.
      Since the authorized amount of “money” is nowhere near the amount needed to be sure everyone has enough, the Fed has decided to continue picking more “leafs” (dollars) and just hand them out and keep pretending there is only a specified amount of leafs in circulation.
      The people are just now starting to awaken to the fact that the original amount of leafs has been diluted with an entire landfill of leafs (dollars).
      We buy all our stuff from people that make stuff instead of picking leafs from an unlimited forest. They are catching onto the fact that the Fed is making too many trips into the forest for more leafs.
      We need to make our own stuff and stop chopping down the forest for others…

      • “Crazy as it seems, the Federal Reserve system is run by folks without integrity”

        Dam..are you sure ED.. they have a nice smile…they say trust me I’m your friend..

        OTFLMAO… just kidding ..they have proven themselves to be untrustworthy time after time..and I’m just one of those worthless eaters lol

  2. A lot of weed related gigs in Michigan.

    Salaries range between $11.00/$15.00 an hour. (In 1980 GM assemblers had a base pay of $14.28 an hour. In modern times, the weed giggers bailout the now retired 1980 GM assemblers).

    To grab the $15.00/hr as “Cultivation & Production Assistant” the applicant needs a training certification, background check and approval of application to the state for agent card.”

  3. Damn, why is government still growing at such a clip. They have less monies coming in and more going out, yet they are still growing employment. Any sane organization would have a hiring freeze when income is reducing and immediately begin considering reductions.

    https://www.bls.gov/ces/

    Government jobs rose by 301,000 in July, after an increase of 54,000 in June.

    Government job growth was just behind leisure for the past month as the largest category. Maybe since they are running the money printer and buying company assets, they will soon need lots of employees to begin to also manage those companies.

    • “Damn, why is government still growing at such a clip. They have less monies coming in and more going out, yet they are still growing employment. Any sane organization would have a hiring freeze”

      Joe.. this video pretty much shows why..

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRQyu66zGE4

      They are panicking..they went option two left the velocity of cash moving.. before covid outbreat 66 percent or more of laborers had to work more than one position to make a basic living and that is even with federal relief programs..
      Now after the velocity was let run on its own.. those positions are gone.. before covid and the loss of income the govt. had what just shy ten percent of all labor positions as an employer.. now that the velocity of the compounding monster has been let loose to run amok among the laborers of the nation..
      it was a double sword.. it swung both ways the way I see it.. the people that have all the benefits and masses of money don’t need a lot of things because they have anything they have always wanted.. its the ones that don’t have and need.. so they spend.. they need the car fixed the new washer and dryer.. the baby formula the daycare and making ends meet is a real chore at times..I can tell you that one first hand is a trial..
      So these people were sent home.. and the velocity of cash kept moving forward.. late charges penalties no money.. rent utilities.. it all kept marching forward.. the second bash was when insurance companies started cancelling health policies and refusing to pay for covid illnesses because of the thought that it is man made.. that one is a serpent looming for the very near future.. and prices for everything will skyrocket very shortly.. hospitals have to pay staff.. they have costs sending the sick to the er is only going to cost more..treat less..physicians rents are going to skyrocket prices have to skyrocket and insurance premiums will skyrocket.. I am not doing my budget until I know just how much.. last year they went up two hundred a month.. or about a dollar a working hour..
      energy costs.. went up slightly.. but that cost was on average four cents per hour.. employers didn’t increase everyones wages by four cents per hour.. they let them manage on their own.. that four cents working back in the pyramid can get ugly.. covid made it ugly.. so govt.. doesn’t have any choice at this point.. they are tossing in everything they can to make the velocity slow down..
      the president signed an executive order what saturday.. he did it because he realizes that he has to.. the country is fragile and no matter what.. something had to be done right now.. congress can still go back after recess or their long weekend junkets etc.. and work on the specifics.. but to wait two more weeks or a month would only expedite the end results that we are going to see very soon..
      Our Mark brags about the cranes being the new state bird.. that is to a sign.. toss the money keep the people working.. I can even see a govt. works program.. more than likely we will see a war since that is what the end agenda has always been lets go destroy someplace for the guy with the gold front tooth..wanting more.. its good for business.. push our control.. hiring more gives them more control for a state run industry.. so is dumping more water on the table to push the dam noodle.. if you look at it from my perspective it is scarier than hell.. I had a pretty scary situation come up this past weekend.. when I thought I had caught the covid.. it would put a halt in our household right now.. no waiting around at all for the end results there.. it is scary to think about..

  4. I’m totally bored with rape allegations, especially those that are far too convenient, such as #metoo, Ford/Kavanaugh, and this one. Real rape is a crime and should be treated as such, but today rape has been trivialized by “rape allegations” for situations such as poor performance, next day regret, vengeance, and Title IX convenience and advocacy.

    I’m sad to see our president making so many of what I consider to be idiotic moves these days. Early in the administration, I was totally on board.

    Biden is unacceptable under any circumstances, just like Obama was. He’s all about high taxes, paternalistic and condescending attitudes, enforcing disincentives to build anything, and catering to the already privileged groups of select minorities, rather than incentivizing individuals to give according to their own hearts and build according to their own dreams. We can presume that any vice-president “chosen by him” will be even worse. This is a recipe for a totally stalled economy leading to the potential end of the American way of life.

    I don’t know about Tik-Tok, but WeChat is fundamental to life in China and those who do business with it. It’s a mashup of Facebook, Tinder, PayPal, Ebay, Twitter, Instagram, email, and automatic translation. It’s disruptive to eliminate our access to it even if it is of some concern to national security. If trade doesn’t cross borders, missiles are likely to. We do need to find a middle ground of holding on to our national independence and maintaining trade at some level, while rebuilding our national manufacturing infrastructure. IMHO, we must always do our best to maintain some connection and understanding of China. The culture and language is difficult for Americans to understand, yet it’s essential if we’re to avoid wanton destruction(both sides) through misunderstanding.

    • Just “discovered” how great Costco’s garlic salt tastes in my morning brew! Reached for what I thought was the ground cinnamon, out of sight, dumped into in with the Hazelnut Chobani creamer, darigold 30% whipping cream whole milk mixture! Was about to dump and tasted it!
      Tastes very good to me. My beautiful young wife added that lots of people use garlic healing properties in various forms in their morning regimen.
      Ure Noah,George, I know it now. You’re keeping us all financially a’float.
      We’re roughly 600′ above sea level and Looking forward to running a sailboat ferrying system once the world stops turning. How bout Y’all?

      • Sorry, meant to say Garlic powder on the coffee matter.
        As far as the “new” dis-economy goes or the “new” global”economic parity”(Cspan, circa 80’s) and mixed with the pie in the sky monetary stimulation, seems we’ve been fooled again. It’s the Lord of the Rings thing.
        Nothing from nothing leaves nothing as the same ole song and dance goes. All that remains are countless soul’s on a journey toward peace, joy and happiness…

    • NM Mike,
      You seem to have a good balance of ideas most of the time, but to say that Democrats have

      “condescending attitudes, enforcing disincentives to build anything””

      Well..that’s just plain wrong. Have you seen liberal cities Skylines like like San Francisco, New York, Seattle, L.A. , Austin, lateLy? They are peppered with dozens of high rise and low rise cranes. I was in Austin pre-covid and one local jokingly said The State Bird is now the crane…based on all the building going on. Presently, there are 18 cranes in downtown San Francisco.

      And as far as condescending attitudes? Can anyone be more condescending than Trump?

    • “I’m totally bored with rape allegations”

      Unfortunately I have known way to many people that have been raped and or sexually abused..
      In the health industry you get to see it all..the depravity of people..
      Statistics say one in three I think it’s more like one in two..
      Theres more real than fake..

      • “Theres more real than fake..”

        Except in politics…”

        I agree Ray.. Politicians are a depravity all unto themselves..
        a group paid to lie to the american people that have such poor work records that a fast food franchise would fire them from the burger assembly line because of their poor work ethics..

  5. About mail-in ballots. Last week I made a statement that criticized mail in ballots…then I did more research and it turns out that many states have successfully been doing mail-in ballots for over a decade. One is Colorado. They have had incredible and error free success with the mail-in system. It increases participation and since mail in ballots are only sent to living registered voters, the fraud that Trump is so insistent talking about is nit an issue. More research shows that GOP leaders in swing states are huge fans of voting by mail. Republicans pioneered Arizona’s vote by mail system and it accounts for 80% of the states vote. State GOP party chairman Joe Gruters said There’s been minimal to no fraud for a long period of time. The same with Florida and Georgia. A majority of those voters are Republicans.

    But Trump is campaigning for the delegitimization of vote by mail, which Tom Ridge is finding a horrible strategy. If Trumps base is true to him and listens, then is he discouraging the very votes he counts on to not vote by mail and instead go sit in long lines at polls? How many Republican elderly in Arizona and Georgia will give up on that for lack of patience and health concerns?

    This stinks of favoritism too. In a head scratcher, while he is shouting fraud, at the same time he is encouraging Floridians to vote by mail, because in his words, “They have a great Republican Governor “…Biased much?

    But, he is suing Nevada, lately a blue state. I am sure California, Washington and other blue/swing states are next.

    I am sick of all this partisanship. Today on The Hill podcast, they proposed a Nikki Haley, Condoleeza Rice ticket that has been making the rounds. I don’t know the logistics to make that happen, but it sure sounds a lot better than the choices we have now. I think we need Strong women in charge…

    Democrats Up Stimulus Demand To $3.4 Trillion In Odd Negotiating Tactic

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just revealed that Congressional Democrats not only won’t budge on their $3 trillion stimulus package passed by the House in May – she’s upped the demand to $3.4 trillion in order to ‘settle’ on a deal.

    https://www.zerohedge.com/political/democrats-stimulus-demand-35-trillion-odd-negotiating-tactic

    Conservatives typically put forth a spending bill at the “price-point” at which the specific function detailed in the bill can be funded. Liberals typically “ask for the moon” in bills they either initiate or to which [they] respond for negotiation. I’ve watched (and been aware of) this crap for 50 years now, and it hasn’t changed. I really wish Repubs would grow a set, or the conservatives in the Party would figure out: “You can’t negotiate from the bottom line, because the only way to go from that point is up.” If I were McConnell and McCarthy, I’d come back with an offer of $800bln with a $10bln/day decrement after a seven day deliberation period.

    • And its all someones else fault where have I heard this bs before but you still have those who preach the ole line that their stinky party is the best.$6.1 trillion for the 1% and next to nothing for the working class God how sick I am reading all the worthless chatter that its all some commies fault.Reagan started the outsourcing of jobs old George he’s the one that let them steal the workers pension plans, and then he crafted the NAFTA. along with the 401K program to fuel the market and take the pension off the back of business.Hell the president is nothing but the poster boy for big business and the bankers, but we still have those with a few loose marbles that think that one party is different from the other,they ain’t they both have their masters that they have to obey….

      • Why do you feel a need to assign blame?

        My b!tch is Republicans are really bad negotiators, and lack the guts to stand by their ideals and sensibilities.

        What will happen here is Trump will EO a temporary relief plan, which the Dems will challenge (so they can say they did), but not seriously enough to kill the Order (because there’s an election coming up.)

        Pelosi won’t budge.

        McCarthy will try to negotiate.

        Nothing will happen.
        ______

        If the Dems hold the House, Pelosi will come back during lame duck with a $4tln offer and McCarthy will give her the $3.5tln.

        Whether Trump is re-elected or not, another suit will be filed in a Liberal court which will kill his relief EO.

        If the Repubs take the House, Pelosi will “negotiate” to settle on $2tln.

        If Trump has won, McCarthy MAY sit on it; if Biden has won, he will jump to pass, because he has ambitions, but no ‘nads.

        This stuff is easy, and plain ol’ common sense, based on historical actions of the Dems, and of Pelosi in particular, and her interplay with/against {whomever the spineless Republican leader in the House is, at the moment…} This script has played out hundreds of times in just the past 40 years (except between 1995-2001. Non-Liberals only get an actual leader about once every hundred years or so.) I have no reason to believe it won’t, again…

      • “Reagan started the outsourcing of jobs old George he’s the one that let them steal the workers pension plans, and then he crafted the NAFTA. ”

        Absolutely blu.. he did and the deregulation of necessary services..the things he sponsored have proven to have been some of the worst things to happen in our lifetime.
        In his defense though.. he had a tough choice to make. He could bail out the bankers or let the the correction happen. His thought about trickle down could have worked if those that were given the finances did what he had anticipated.. but similar to all three other bailouts and stimulus those funds never go towards what they were ever intended to. They usually go out to line the coffers and bonuses for those that already have what they need..
        Where if it had been given to those that need and will spend would have trickled up and those at the top would still have gained those rewards..
        The sad part is no stimulus or bailout should have been given..the what was it four trillion in social security should have remained there. No tax breaks no deductions a flat tax at poverty level up.. all jobs outsourced should be taxed a n.v d all incoming goods taxed.. make a buck in the USA pay the tax.. if you dont want to then your not allowed to do business here.. just like everywhere else the checkbook has to balance.
        Instead when he realized his mistakes he tried to smooth them over with rebates..
        I liked him I think his intentions were honorable he just misjudged the ethics of those in power..
        We should have gone through the correction ..instead we are now facing it..congress can quibble and spit moan etc. But DJT did the right thing with a congress that cant decide when the appropriate time is to wipe after a bowel movement. Someone needed to act. This way SJB can get in and this whole economic mess can be his

  11. Facebook, Twitter Censor President Trump’s Fox News Interview

    Facebook and Twitter censored a video clip of President Donald Trump’s recent interview on Fox News’ Fox & Friends over alleged coronavirus “misinformation.”

    https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2020/08/05/facebook-twitter-censor-president-trumps-fox-news-interview/

    This is horribly wrong, regardless the source. I utterly, categorically refuse to have my opinion force-fed me, or be told my opinion is “wrong” or “invalid” because it runs counter to that of some wet-behind-the-ears commie nerd. I did not slog through “1984” and “Animal Farm” during my pre-teen years, to not see the lesson — and the warning, or to forget them in my old age. A very large, very vocal component of today’s youth has become highly bigoted, intolerant, and narrow-minded, all the while purporting (and possibly believing) they’re less bigoted, intolerant, or narrow-minded than their ancestors. They can, either singly or collectively, kiss my bottom side…

    Any takers that George’s “Broken Web” does not arrive before Election Day…?

    • ‘highly bigoted, intolerant, and narrow minded’ !

      What a perfect description of your news sources (breitbart, information liberation), and your own opinion/viewpoint that you obsessively and compulsively chant rant every day.

      Bad Commies! Bad Democrats! Bad Leftists! (If they’re bad, then Trump will look good!)

      Many former Trump supporters now see the damage he has done:

      • Touched a nerve, did I…?

        I am referring to individuals.

        EVERY “news” source is biased.

        My own opinion is formulated by “best data available” regardless of source, and based on historical precedent or record. We are an unimaginative species at the species level. We tend to do the same things, in the same situations, regardless of whether the consequence of these things have been successful or breathtakingly tragic.

        Socialism is bad, because it removes all value of the individual, and because it is incompatible with mentally or socially developing intelligent life. It is not achievable or attainable by Man, which is why, absent an “adult in the room,” always has, and always will fail.

        The reign of the Second Coming of Christ is a perfect communist society. It is attainable only when led by God who, by definition, can create anything from anything, or from nothing at all, and is is the “final destination” of humanity, therefore the point at which no further human creativity or social advancement is possible.

        We’re not God.

        Democrats and Leftists are not bad, per se, and I’m sorry you feel they are.

        “Democrats,” or specifically the “Democratic Party,” like the “Republican Party,” is a private corporation, to which shortsighted people affirm an allegiance.

        “Leftists” “push the envelope” and drive social change. They are, to a one, really bad at recognizing the “Law of Unintended Consequences.” “Rightists” try to “hold the envelope” and find ways to make the Leftists’ policies function. Both are necessary to our form of government and society, because the “proper course” with regards to any policy or situation is usually somewhere between the ideological “Left” and “Right.”

        Unfortunately, we’ve gotten away from the proper role of “Leftist” in American politics. The “Left” has moved left to the point of totalitarianist fascism, and dragged a majority of National Democratic politicians with it. Does that make these particular politicians “bad?” Yes, because they are too weak to lead individually, and so are collectively pushing an agenda which will destroy the good of humanity by forcing the bad of humanity upon us in a manner from which there will be no escape.

        Now, go back to The Koz, ‘cuz you’re too lazy to read an actual history book…

      • And just what do you think capitalism is where the worker is looked at as just another resource.your talking out of both sides of your mouth both parties clasp the fascist idea to their breast, and of course your own opinion is just what you precieve it to be from implanted ideas which exsape’s reality,of the two capitalism or socialism capitalism is the worse by far for it ranks right up with communism for the poverty it creates. .and believe me we will get a good taste of that as they go looking for the profit that’s not there anymore,well that is after they have milk this country and its people of everything they have…

      • “And just what do you think capitalism is”

        “Capitalism” is a word Karl Marx invented, to explain communism.

        “and of course your own opinion is just what you precieve it to be from implanted ideas which exsape’s reality”

        Kud ewe fiks the speling and restait this? I hav no idea whut yur tryin too say.

        “of the two capitalism or socialism capitalism is the worse by far”

        Right, because under socialism, a little boy who takes his wagon out and collects garbage can eventually buy a railroad.

    • Your Zerohedge article about Facebook et al censoring Trump’s statement that ‘children are immune from Cov-19’ again highlights your inability to grasp facts.

      Or, do you like droning your support of ‘baby killer due to misinfo’ Trump:
      10% of infants with Cov 19 become critically ill, PIMS (similar to Kawasaki disease)

      https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/coronavirus/coronavirus-in-babies-and-children

      It’s morally reprehensible to hide the facts on Cov-19, not to mention derelict of duty to ‘act like nothings happening’ for months while other countries effectively quashed their curve (and ours has now risen to the biggest peak, we’ve got the most deaths of any country, and Trump is dumping WHO, World Health Organization, where Germany shared the Cov19 testing protocol that the U.S. wouldn’t implement during the first outbreak)

      https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/worlds-highest-covid-19-death-toll-us-world/story?id=71670169

      • No, the fact is the unsociable media censored Trump.

        I don’t care who it is, or what they say, the issue is the censorship, not the subject or content of their speech.

      • “It’s morally reprehensible to hide the facts on Cov-19, not to mention derelict of duty to ‘act like nothings happening’ for months ”

        I think it was all a business model. The USA was already on the slope sliding to the cliff.. he went option 2 and left the velocity of cash moving. As soon as he seen the affects of option 2 , I think he got scared. Most peoples money is similar to BCN’s bitcoins and is on nm paper or a number one ledger. The velocity of cash hits everyone. So quick let’s go option three and get the country moving. As soon as it ramps up this fall there will be a panic again only this time it will be even worse.. ince in the death spiral it’s hard to pull the plain back up if the engine isnt working.. the best you can do is glide till the crash

    • I was not a fan at age 9 or 11. I am still not a fan, because I figured out the warnings, rather than adopting the books as primers.

      Why should I care what some leftist rag or State-run radio station thinks of Orwell, or anything else. I do not need, nor will I accept having my thoughts or opinions force-fed to me. I regularly exercise independent thought.

      Perhaps you should try it, sometime…?

      Now, go back to The Koz, so you can discover what your next thought will be…

      • Sounds like they were force fed to you years ago as you embrace the two party system, not intelligent to understand that in reality they are nothing more than a one party system.And as the years went slowly by your thoughts became more entrenched as you saw a commie,lefty or someone else behind every tree, which did nothing at all for independent thinking as you only spout the endless retoric that you were brought up on….
