Once you drop to Venezuela, you're already fucked. That country's gonna be strip mined of everything valuable.

Shouldn't you be protesting against California? Trump reduced our taxes, it's the blood sucking leeches in Sacramento who are the real trouble makers.




The federal reserve holds all the keys. They control the feds, and as the reserve bank is in San Franshitsco, any federal building will make a good target.

But yes, the state has their day of reckoning in all of this too.

Don't like debt-free Venezuela lifestyle, how about debt-free Zimbabwe?


Venezuela and Zimbambwe both have central banks. Without a central bank there's no debt notes(dollars here), and no chance at national hyperinflation. Iceland is the closest any nation has gotten to debt free that I know of, and that's because they tried saying fuck the banks we won't pay.

LACK of inflation is destroying the economy.


So explain how I make more money than 2 years ago, same expenses, and have less spending power?

You tell me. Housing, Education, Health Insurance are totally disconnected from the inflation rate and are running wild because of shitty policies.


So inflation is an increase in the money supply, which leads to each dollar losing value as what the value of dollars is based on hasn't changed, just the number in circulation. This was much easier to understand when we had a silver backed dollar, as each dollar was tied to a specific weight of silver held by the bank(or supposed to be). Everything, EVERYTHING valued in dollars is affected by inflation, no exceptions. I believe what I'm seeing is an overall loss of purchasing power due to my devalued dollar, which means the milk, meat, etc I could by for $20 two years ago, is $30 dollars today.

So what is the dollar value based on today? Nothing, but more practically the ability of the American people to pay back their debts. This is some sick cyclical shit that will not end well, but I'm just the guy who's been saying this for years, what do I know.

Another CENTRAL BANKER quote on what they really do(versus what Logan imagines):

"But it has been obvious to many, notably those energetic enough to chart the S&P500 against the Fed’s Quantitive Easing program, that since 2009 stocks have been rising on waves of the Fed’s generous money creation. Now, speaking yesterday in a CNBC interview, former Dallas Fed Chairman Richard Fisher says, “We floated the markets at the Fed. There’s no question about it.” Listen yourself at this link from 3:30 to 7:05."

Market was already saturated from recreational growth and sales since 1996. Whoops, I forgot, we were all medical users until this past year...

Seriously though, it peaked probably 5 or more years ago as far as price. Growers have been getting shafted ever since, while dispensaries continue to charge the same price. Someone's making money, but it's not mom and pop anymore. Now it's a fucking industry.

So this was discussed at a family gathering last night, one of my relatives works in social services. The issue I brought up is, will the IRS stop collecting taxes? They have not that I know of, so the money is still coming in. They've just stopped spending it. As far as I know, any business that continues to collect for services, but stops offering them is committing robbery or fraud. I think it's time we legitimize this shutdown, and stop the inflow to match the outflow.

She has a friend who works for Ice who isn't getting paid. Apparently Ice workers are told if they don't show up, they'll be jailed, even though they aren't getting paid. Doesn't sound like a job to me, sounds like slavery.

I think this stems from copyright law, which completely misconstrues property rights as they were intended in the Federalist Papers. I agree with rights when it comes to someone's physical property, but it gets really murky when you start trying to enforce the same rights for ideas and copies of a work that you willingly sell/distribute, allowing others to own it.

Sure we would have great army, police, justice, etc... without taxes.


We founded this country without a standing army, so not a valid reason.
Police should never be federally funded, always locally in order to increase accountability, not a valid reason. Same for courts.

Look at the taxes we take in versus the interest on the national debt, that kind of eats it all up, and without Federal Reserve, no national debt, so you're actually advocating for a system that prevents the beneficial use of taxes.

And lastly, and MOST importantly, who do you trust as more fiscally responsible, the federal government, or yourself?

Hollande just use 75% tax to get voters. Never implement it.

The tax rates in France in 2018 (for income earned in 2017) are as follow:
Up to €9,807: 0%
€9,807–27,086: 14%
€27,086–72,617: 30%
€72,617–153,783: 41%
€153,783+: 45%
Dec 2, 2018


So explain the economic collapse that ensued, the Yellow Vest protests that are going on now, and the fact that French pay more taxes than any other country in Europe.

There is no collapse: France economy continues to grow at a snail pace.
The french governments continues to do "reforms" to liberalize the economy. In Macron's case mostly on the labor rights.
In the meantime, they try to close the deficit by increasing taxes. Hence the yellow vests.


So France is your idea of a stable government working for the people? Funny, the French don't share your sentiment...

All you pro-tax/wealth re-distribution people, let me see if I understand you correctly:

* If someone is successful that's bad, they should be forced to share what they've earned.
* Socialism works, despite Venezuela, Cuba, China,the USSR, and every other attempt at it failing miserably.
* Taking money from individuals and giving it to the government will make things better, despite the fact that our government has the largest deficit in history, spends recklessly, and wages endless wars ever since 1913.

No success is good, and should be rewarded by wealth. I don't subscribe to socialism.


If you want to re-distribute wealth from the rich, you're a socialist. If you advocated a flat tax, like sales, which already exists, then I'd believe you, but you obviously favor the ridiculously complex tiered structure we have today.

Heraclitusstudent says
Gov deficit:
- (1) is the source of money in circulation
- (2) can be closed by taxing back the same money, leaving plenty of wealth of successful people,


Wrong, the Federal Reserve is the source of of money in circulation, money that can only be created by selling bonds, thus guaranteeing that every dollar we print adds debt. This is how ALL fiat central banking systems work.

Heraclitusstudent says
- (3) is often the source of long term sources of growth: Like infrastructures, like education, like the Internet... which was created and long financed by the government. like long term research often not done in private industry.


I'm curious.. Where do you think the government GOT the money to finance these projects? They don't make any goods. Ahh, by taking it from us. So government takes, deficit grows, and that's prosperity?
Also, bullshit on only government funding long-term research. See PARC.

Yes, ME ME ME. The ALL IMPORTANT "I". The earth should be thanking US, and every animal too for keeping things running, and SAVING the planet. I mean fuck, we're practically gods!!!

Vaccinate everyone, whether they want it or not! If the War on Us has taught us anything, it's that telling people what they can and can't put into their bodies is a guaranteed model for success!

I wasn't able to itemize this year as the standard deduction was higher than in the past. I had adjusted my deductions because last year I got like $2,000 back, and I always aim to owe a little. Not cool with interest free loans to the IRS. Ended up owing $500 this year.

Politics has finally become exactly what I always said it was, the WWF. AOC embodies the spirit on Vince McMahon in every conceivable way. Showmanship and entertainment over substance.

I've never been penalized, and this year especially there is no way to justify it given how much things have changed. Best I ever did was owing $88.

This all stems from the erosion of property rights(see copyright law, eminent domain, property taxes), and The War on Us. As soon as you legislate what someone can put in their body, what you can take out of their body is not far behind.

So my first week here I enjoyed ice on my windshield(I'm now parking in the garage), and snow on the surrounding mountains on my drive into work. The last was pretty, and really enjoying the beauty sky's out here.

Also I've noticed that major east/west streets act as mini-freeways with speed limits of 40-45mph, and most people driving 10 miles over. So despite living on the West side and commuting to Scottsdale, I never have to spend more than 45 minutes in traffic.
