Memories of the 28th Century

Miscellaneous thoughts about miscellaneous matters

  1. Inflation Policy

    by , 04-27-2022 at 10:38 AM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I saw a letter to the Editor in the Daily Hampshire Gazette that asserted that present inflation was a result of Bidenís policies. That is a false accusation. There has been inflation at substantial levels for several decades, and it has been a deliberate policy of the U.S. government. The inflation policy was established to ensure that the government could make money by selling long term bonds.

    Bonds are sold by the Treasury Department with a fixed interest payment, and the actual ...
  2. Women Are Superior

    by , 04-20-2022 at 09:21 AM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I saw something on Facebook that suggested that women were inferior to men. That is clearly absurd, but there probably are some people who think that, so I started this blog post, and I tried to think of ways that men are superior to women; the only thing I could think of was the manner of urination.

    I have noticed that advertisers seem to have no respect for the intelligence and knowledge of people of retirement age and older. The products advertised for seniors assume that the seniors are either in poor health or mentally retarded. And I canít forget that woman with the creaky voice who tells us that she has fallen and canít get up.

    There must be people who buy such things, but they probably were taken in by fraudulent advertising when they were younger also, so they probably ...
  4. The Inutility of Higher Education

    by , 04-02-2022 at 11:20 AM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I am not completely against higher education, but it has little or no value for most people, and it may even have negative value in some cases. This is not something that was on my mind, but it came to mind while was thinking about recent adventures in the medical industry. I have plenty of respect for any of the people in the medical industry, but I think that they waste a lot of time in classrooms, when it comes down to what may be useful in the business. It isnít just that one of the physicians ...
