  1. Trump's Depression

    by , 06-09-2019 at 01:52 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I was thinking about how the U.S. economy would go from the upswing that Trump takes credit for to the Even Greater Depression that his trade war will bring on.

    Trump should be separated from the claims of strong economy, and he could be thrown out of office and not have a chance of re-election, and he may have undone himself with the additional tariffs. I wasn't expecting the stock market to tank for a considerable time, as it happened during the 1920's. I'm not the only one who ...

  2. Minding Business

    by , 05-25-2019 at 02:06 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I sometimes find myself wondering why someone isnít minding his or her own business. And I usually to do that, but The Valley Advocate got me to do otherwise. This preference hasnít shown up in my blog often, but blogs are for people to vent their opinions. The Feature Article in the paper was about physician assisted suicide, which is an excellent example of people taking responsibility for themselves. Then when I opened the paper the first heading I saw was an opinion piece about ďhealthy food ...
  3. Edited History

    by , 05-03-2019 at 04:00 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    For some reason, earlier today I recalled a couple of events that have already been edited out of the history of the 21st century. Unfortunately, I do not have archival information about either event, so many people wonít believe that they happened. In the end, I found that these items havenít been deleted, just ignored and pushed out of the generally available record.

    Neither item was widely reported when it happened, but there were reports online. The first one was when in the Summer ...

  4. The Coming U.S. Debt Crisis

    by , 04-15-2019 at 06:07 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Debtors love inflation. The more they owe, the more inflation they want. That is because inflated dollars cost less, so the debtors can repay the same nominal amount for a lower value. That works whether you are a real estate developer or the U.S.A. The U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve Bank have been encouraging high inflation for a long time, so that the Treasury can pay off bonds with cheaper dollars. If inflation is running at average rate of 2.68% per annum, thirty year bonds can be paid ...

  5. Restoring Civility

    by , 04-06-2019 at 07:19 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    During most of my life so far I lived in rather safe areas, places where the general populace was well-behaved, and there was a local police force that was adequate. Unfortunately, the place where I presently live is becoming progressively less safe. Eight years ago, I moved back to Amherst; unfortunately, Amherst has gone from being a pleasant and friendly place to a place where people are in fear of violent crime, and with good reason, a significant part of the townís population has become unreliable, ...
