The more I listen to people talk about how the older generations basically "stole" everything they have and all that's been built. And the more I hear those same talk about how those older generations are basically just as awful as every one of their racist misguided ancestors. The more I realize that they don't want to truly move forward. They just want what they feel is their share of the loot...

We won’t win the fight for self-governance with fear or half-measures.

We’ll win by using the Constitution’s most powerful tool against federal overreach: a Convention of States.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist. But I have to question the coincidences of political implications of covid. Everyone hates trump, he starts trade war with China, comes out in top in said trade war, virus appears in china, and is not properly contained or reported, ...It spreads to U.s. first despite early travel ban being implemented, this just so happens to to occur in the run up to a trumps potential reelection which highly probable based on pre covid circumstances, trump makes some questionable decisions in dealing with the virus.. but...Devotes massive resources to finding a vaccine in record time, achieves goal of viable vaccine but not until after the election and then while questioning the election where there was some unusual activity, then a super infectious strain appears and begins to spread just as ...The vaccine starts being distributed. Making any questionable choice trump may have made seem even more potentially damaging. The timing of all the events is very coincidental. You have to forgive anyone who sees the potential for conspiracy or for thinking that if trump is...As awful as many believe that it may be an act of God..just saying

Seems like a great idea!

This is brilliant!!!
Okay Kroger/Walmart/ (insert cashless store here), your no change policy is going to cost you in the long run. I use cash for all my purchases. And I plan on continuing to do so. I don't need you to be a bank and hold my money on a card so you can draw interest on my money. And I sure am not going to donate to a charity of your choosing so you can then get a tax write off by using other people's money.
My solution is to pay with cash up to the change IE: the Bill is $23.35 I will give you $23.00 in cash and pay the remainder with a debit or credit card. The 35 cents owed you will now cost you a small fee and I will continue to have my change in my possession and not yours.
If everyone did this, I bet your business would find those coins quickly after only one day of service charges from your card processor.

Good idea

There is a great deal of conversation going on about about what works and what does not work in terms of governance and social structure. But there is one key element i hear almost no mention of. That is that no matter what ideology or philosophy we decide to be the one to follow, no matter what type of government or financial system we decide to subject ourselves to, there is a fatal flaw in all of them. Humans!

Any governmental , financial, religious, sociological, or philosophical practice we decide to embrace is practically guaranteed to fail at some point. Why, you might ask. Simple it was created by us.

We like to think of ourselves as intelligent, moral, evolved creatures. But if we are brutally honest about ourselves as individuals, we must admit that we can be selfish, fearful, irrational, petty, disinterested, opinionated, and down right mean, at least from time to time. Then you multiply that behavior by 7+ billion individuals trying to do their best to protect themselves from all the unpleasant behavior that we know every other person engages in on occasion. At this point we start to get a picture of how insurmountable a task we are undertaking.

Then you add in the fact that these flawed beings have attempted to create systems that are meant to control large groups of individuals in the same way, under single set of rules. Those rules must also be monitored and enforced by those flawed persons. in an attempt to keep the social contract viable and intact. It is an undeniable fact that we are strikingly clever and adaptable and that some will find ways to avoid or undermine any of the rules that they deem less than perfect.

On every single point of interest in our design for a perfect organization of civilization we will have disagreement and even if we agree at first, over time our resolve and dedication to the preservation of every single part or our great machine will erode. Therefore that will increase the speed of deterioration and will lead to inevitable failure.

We are at best Inept designers trying to build an unsustainable machine using broken parts running on tainted fuel. Our knowledge and opinions wil l change and grow as our society ages. so what used to be an ideal way to deal with something will likely prove ineffective in the future. people will always try to buck the system for good or ill. so until we become perfect beings we will never have a perfect system of government or financial system. Society and social contracts must be tended like a garden.We must keep what works and redesign what does not. But then again we will likely never agree on that either.

Even "positive" stereotypes are still racist. For example "Asians are smart " "Black people are good at sports " " White people make the best racists"

We have seen many people posting this and similar images charts and graphs. You must remember one set of numbers can't tell the whole story . Using the 2019 numbers from this image we calculated that the percentage of blacks killed by police was roughly. 0005% if you divide the white population in 2019 approx. 197,000,000 by that percentage you get roughly 1050. That means black people are 3x's more likely to be killed by police than white people. But even that doesn't tell the whole story. Many variables go in to it. Be careful about making conclusions on limited data..

Our Story

Let's say some malevolent group -- the government, powerful corporations, extraterrestrials -- really is trying to read and/or control your thoughts with radio waves. Would the preferred headgear of the paranoid, a foil helmet, really keep The Man and alien overlords out of our brains? The scientific reasoning behind the foil helmet is that it acts as a Faraday cage, an enclosure made up of a conducting material that shields its interior from external electrostatic charges and electromagnetic radiation by distributing them around its exterior and dissipating them. While sometimes these enclosures are actual cages, they come in many forms, and most of us have probably dealt with one type or another. Elevators, the scan rooms that MRI machines sit in, "booster bags" that shoplifters sometimes use to circumvent electronic security tags, cables like USB or TV coaxial cables, and even the typical household microwave all provide shielding as Faraday cages. While the underlying concept is good, the typical foil helmet fails in design and execution. An effective Faraday cage fully encloses whatever it's shielding, but a helmet that doesn't fully cover the head doesn't fully protect it. If the helmet is designed or worn with a loose fit, radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation can still get up underneath the brim from below and reveal your innermost thoughts to the reptilian humanoids or the Bilderberg Group. In 2005, a group of MIT students, prodded by "a desire to play with some expensive equipment," tested the effectiveness of foil helmets at blocking various radio frequencies. Using two layers of Reynolds aluminum foil, they constructed three helmet designs, dubbed the Classical, the Fez, and the Centurion, and then looked at the strength of the transmissions between a radio-frequency signal generator and a receiver antenna placed on various parts of their subjects' bare and helmet-covered heads. The helmets shielded their wearers from radio waves over most of the tested spectrum (YouTube user Mrfixitrick likewise demonstrates the blocking power of his foil toque against his wireless modem) but, surprisingly, amplified certain frequencies: those in the 2.6 Ghz ( allocated for mobile communications and broadcast satellites) and 1.2 Ghz (allocated for aeronautical radionavigation and space-to-Earth and space-to-space satellites) bands. While the MIT guys' tongue-in-cheek conclusion -- "the current helmet craze is likely to have been propagated by the Government, possibly with the involvement of the FCC" -- maybe goes a few steps too far, their study at least shows that foil helmets fail at, and even counteract, their intended purpose. That, or the students are aliens who fabricated these results in an effort to get you to take your perfectly functional helmet off.
