    Dems and pro Dem analysts are missing an important point. Elections where Trump or Trump backed candidates are involved, result in higher GOP turnout.

    Swiss Social Media Abuzz Over ‘Rat Out Your Neighbor’ Energy Use PostersAs Switzerland takes drastic measures to reduce its gas use this winter – including fines and up to three years in prison for citizens who violate new regulations, a viral poster circulating on Swiss social media telling citizens to rat out neighbors heating their homes above 19C (66.2F) has raised eyebrows.

    “Does the neighbor heat the apartment to over 19 degrees? Please inform us,” reads the poster currently circulating on messaging services such as Signal and Telegram, according to Swiss media.

    we had a nice remembrance of 9/11 in church today, after which yours truly did the Sunday Message (our Pastor is out of town).

    Hope all is well…and God Bless America!!

    Two things that could be bullish for eth soon: after merge there will no longer be inflation created by paying the miners. second point is it could become the ESG coin especially if the world keeps attacking BTC and proof of work…essentially investors may get more access to eth if the merge works.

    Yes, I think that Bitcoin enthusiasts are increasingly seeing ETH as a Trojan Horse to get a crypto which is agreeable to nation-states. It’s definitely more centralized and controllable.

    Kharkiv in black out from destroyed infrastructure in RU response to UA advances to nearly the RU border in the north. Its sad. Even if UA ‘wins’ they ‘lose’ as they will have to rebuild half the country by time it is all said and done.

    12, yes. Either side gets to rebuild the damage done by both armed forces.
    The people get to suffer at the end of the war when everything is in ruins.
    And the people get to suffer as the front line swings back and forth.

    PRP in 8 – …especially if the world keeps attacking BTC and proof of work…

    Interesting comment as I just came across the following which describes the backdoor that will probably be used to ban Bitcoin in the EU and eventually in the US.

    https://dailyhodl.com/2022/09/10/cardano-creator-charles-hoskinson-warns-that-the-white-houses-new-crypto-proposals-pose-grave-threat-to-bitcoin/

    Basically, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy recently issued a report that calls for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) to create environmental standards with regards to digital assets. It is almost certain that Bitcoin’s proof of work algorithms and protocols would meet the standards outlined in the document. Then, under the guise of Bitcoin mining being deemed wasteful, unnecessary & energy intensive, this would lay the foundation for the outright ban of Bitcoin. The looming energy crisis in the EU will provide the urgent crisis to implement such a ban and the US will follow shortly thereafter to support our European allies. After all, it will be for the greater good.

    I’m not a fan of BTC myself, but I’m absolutely against the government banning activities using energy resources purchased on the open market. If such a precedent is set, there is no end to what the government could disallow energy use towards.

    Not sure about that, but I understand where you are coming from. Several years ago I worked in an office where a nasty post-menopausal office manager was in charge of the of the thermostat. It was utterly ridiculous with office often being kept at 62 degrees in the summer and 85 degrees in the winter. She would throw a hissy fit if anyone else so much as looked at the thermostat claiming it was too complex for people to set correctly. This being an office of engineers with advanced degrees in software development, electrical engineering, material sciences and robotics.

    The rest of us always wondered what blackmail material she had on the CEO to keep her around. Multiple candidates stated their reason for rejecting an offer from the company was her demeanor towards them during interviews. Her job was basically welcome a candidate to the company and let the rest of us know when the person arrived. How could she screw that up? I didn’t stick around for long myself, but she is the only person I ever was happy to hear got laid off during a downturn at the company.

    But I understand it. We drive maintenance nuts every time there is a change of seasons. Some offices are too cold, others too hot. Till they get the air flow balanced people are either wearing sweaters or beach wear. 🙂

    14,

    Question of timing I guess. BTC will soon enough be at a point that all the coins have been mined. Or should I say they have been mined that are fiscally worth mining. Considering that some countries come hell or high water will not ban BTC the mining will go till either closure is reached or cost exceeds gain. At that point all the BTCs are feral. Then it becomes a matter of network efficiency and my gut says that the CBDC will not be as efficient as a BTC for simple fact that the central bank will want to store all the luscious data for the IRS to examine.

    Wave Of German Insolvencies Picks Up Speed

    “As Germany’s electricity and natural gas prices soar, a wave of companies – some having a long tradition – are filing insolvency. Many midsize companies rely on natural gas as a source of energy, but prices have multiplied since early this year.
    Blackout News here reports toilet paper maker Hakle has filed for insolvency, citing “increased energy costs”.”

    “The wave of insolvencies has just begun, and is “picking up speed”, writes Blackout News. “What we are seeing now is just the tip of an iceberg. Increased energy prices are affecting all industries, whether directly, as in the case of steel mills and bakeries, or indirectly, as in the case of shoe retailer Görtz. If politicians do not take countermeasures here, Germany will fall into a severe and long-lasting recession, with mass unemployment and a massive loss of prosperity.””

    CO social worker tries to break up multiple families with fake child abuse accusations.
    Might have worked … but one target was a Councilwoman who was able to get police aid.

    https://www.foxnews.com/us/colorado-councilwoman-political-attack-social-worker-unleashed-troves-allegations
    Colorado councilwoman says ‘political attack’ by social worker unleashed troves of other allegations
    ‘Had this not happened to me, this would still be going on,’ the Colorado councilwoman told Fox News Digital

    The lawsuit argues that through the defendants’ activities and conduct, “dozens, if not hundreds (or more) Arapahoe County families have been torn apart, sometimes permanently, on the basis of constitutionally improper investigations, false sworn testimony by Arapahoe County employees, fabricated evidence introduced by Arapahoe County employees in both investigatory and judicial proceedings, and a downright inexplicable, unfounded, and unjust desire to separate or attempt to separate children from their parents or other caretakers.”

    The former social worker is accused of making sexual advances toward women she was actively investigating in her role as a social worker, and trying to separate children from those women’s families if her advances were spurned, according to the lawsuit.

    Americans Spent More on Taxes in 2021 Than on Food, Clothing and Health Care Combined
    https://www.cnsnews.com/article/washington/terence-p-jeffrey/americans-spent-more-taxes-2021-food-clothing-and-health-care
    According to newly released data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Americans in 2021 once again spent more on average on taxes than they did on food, clothing and health care combined.

    During 2021, according to Table R-1 in the BLS’ Consumer Expenditure Survey, American “consumer units” spent an average of $15,495.28 on food, clothing and health care combined, while paying an average of $16,729.73 in total taxes to federal, state and local governments.

    Lots of upsets in college football this weekend. Any of you Texans know anything about Incarnate Word? All I know is that its a small Catholic school in San Antonio. Beat Nevada by two TDs Saturday.

    With Notre Dame and Boston College being winless, that makes Incarnate Word the #1 Catholic College football team.

    We shouldda figured Weber State was going to upset Utah State. With the abs on the Weber State cheerleaders, imagine how the football players are ripped. They won 35-7.

    Bizarre is the best family friendly label I can put on this one. But lets consider two lesbians are involved and one of them is deem fit to adjudge others as to their family arrangements? A bridge too far in my book. The person has neither the mindset or the social temperance to be making such judgments.

    I think bc is correct. Taxes will go up and up. Plus the IRS will be expanded so they can dig deeper into people’s private finances.

    If “They” want to impoverish most all of the citizenry, then they can use multiple techniques.
    Weaken the value of the currency using inflation.
    Ruin people’s personal lives by making the economy shaky and job loss common.
    Reduce people’s personal net worth by taxing the carp out of anyone with a job.

    Using multiple methods diffuses pushback from the dissidents

    Canada Conservative Party chooses a feisty populist.
    https://rwmalonemd.substack.com/p/global-news-new-leaders
    Global News – New Leaders
    “You can ignore reality but you can’t ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.”
    Canada’s opposition Conservative Party elected its go-to attack dog as its new party leader Saturday.

    Pierre Poilievre is a firebrand populist who opposes vaccine mandates and blames Canada’s inflation on Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. He won the party leadership on the first ballot, defeating a moderate, centrist candidate with 68% of the votes cast by the party’s members.

    The 43-year-old Poilievre is a career politician and was a cabinet minister in former Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government. He embraced Canadians who were against vaccine mandates and supported the freedom truck convoy that paralyzed Canada’s capital and blockaded the border with the U.S.

    Wave Of German Insolvencies Picks Up Speed

    Not a problem… The ECB has already declared they will provide liquidity not just to the banks, but to any segment of the economy that needs it due to the looming energy crisis. As a result, EU inflation will almost certainly rage higher next year and the EURO/$$$ exchange rate will plummet. To be fair though, the FED has almost certainly whispered the same promises as well.

    17 – It’s my understanding that the energy cost just to maintain the Bitcoin blockchain via validation and consensus amongst competing minors is very high even without factoring in the mining of new Bitcoins.

    Pessimistic or realistic?
    https://americanmind.org/features/rule-not-by-lies/elite-not-expert/
    America’s elites are neither bright, competent, nor qualified

    I don’t know how to dislodge the present elites. It seems to me that their grip on power is so secure that ordinary political action—organizing, voting, governing—will not suffice, especially when half or more of the regime is beyond government control.

    the only two things they are competent at are self-perpetuation and societal destruction. And the latter is a direct threat to the former. If they were even minimally competent, they would know that.

    The incompetence comes from lack of exposure to reality. Who was the last POTUS to actively participated in a war? None other than George Bush Sr.. The man was still an A$$h%^&, but mildly knowledgeable having lived thru one. Everyone since treats it like a video game. But there are many in and out of government that are pointing out that the world’s current leadership is some of the worst ever.
