Looks like some kind of parasite. I wouldn't make the leap to AI or aliens from this photo.

What, your face doesn't do this when you say the word "entire"?

We obviously have high inflation right now. They always lie about inflation rates and they alter the CPI calculations to make it look more favorable (to the FED). Well, now for the first time in my life they are admitting inflation is high, which means it's really high and likely to go higher.

I like Alex Jones, but he puts out a fear-based product and I can't get behind that. Fear sells, but it also paralyzes the mind, preventing you from acting on the information.

It's becoming increasingly clear that, in America, they've failed. The narrative has fallen apart and people just don't care about covid anymore. Many people still comply with the impositions, but no one is screeching about them like they did last year.

I think they will continue trying to demolish everything still standing in western society so they can "build back better." They might pivot away from pandemic tactics and try to start a war between US and China, which would be disastrous.

I bet the Delta workers who "voluntarily" took the shot are feeling duped right about now. The threat they used worked and now they drop the threat and claim they aren't using force. This is why anyone still holding out needs to hang in there and call their bluff!

Awesome! Do we have any updates on the situation at Southwest and how it's evolving? Did the revolt spread to other airlines?

Just a bunch of fed-up pilots acting individually of their own conscience. No organizing was necessary because the pressure has been building for over a year. All that was necessary was for the airline to cross the line and the pilots took the action they had already decided on.

Each of us has gone over it in our minds... what we will do when our employer tries to impose it on us.

Barter requires you to have something the other person wants. It's a good system in a small community with trust and accountability, but it has limitations. Crypto allows you to transact with anyone and is designed to work in the absence of trust (i.e. both parties are protected and no middleman is required).

Coinbase only has access to the coins on its exchange. If you don't hold the private keys, you don't own the coins. There's an easy way around that by storing your keys in an offline hardware wallet, or just memorizing your recovery phrase.

If the electrical grid is purposely or accidentally turned off for more than 3 days we have bigger problems to worry about than the ability to send and receive crypto.

I think many people who own crypto are in it to protect themselves against the very scenario you describe. Crypto is immune to this sort of attack because people would have to be fooled into selling for worthless paper.

Real crypto is decentralized and functions without any middleman or banker. The CBDCs are very bad news because they would put a banker in control of every transaction. It would destroy economic freedom and enslave everyone using it to the state.

You need to read this article by Ed Snowden about the difference between decentralized crypto and CBDCs. One is a path to freedom and the other is enslavement to the state.

Ok, and...? Owning bitcoin isn't a conspiracy...

Even if SWA has started to lose its way (hasn't every corporation?) I've always said Southwest has the absolute best people in the airline business and this proves it. When the mandates came down they are standing for freedom. This could go down in history as the moment where the American people all stood together and said NO to this tyranny.

I really hope this spreads across the nation. There will be no way to ignore it! Tighten your belts, gentlemen, and get ready to show them we mean business!

He seems to know his history. I give him credit for that and for using his historical knowledge to make predictions. Good member to have around, I say.

Rand knows how to play the "game" of politics, else he wouldn't have been able to get to his position. He has to make an argument from a position he may not fully agree with (i.e. saying a vaccine is beneficial) to avoid being marginalized and ridiculed. It's fine if you find that distasteful - a lot of people have no stomach for politics. I personally think he's righteous and doing what little good he can do from within the beast.

His father was more idealistic and we all loved that about Ron... but he wasn't a Senator.

Same way you create trust in all relationships. Do things together, get to know each other's family and friends. The level of trust you achieve is the determining factor for potential activities. It's not a quick process.
