the lies are winning
Yesterday the US Senate repealed the mandate on vaccinate or test for many private businesses.

The world divorced from reality, reason, honesty, morality and even common sense is growing like a cancer.

learn the very basics Phat.
Phat, do you have ANY idea what money and currency are?

If I write you a check do you consider that Fiat?

Phat, quit listening to the Carny Hucksters and Snake Oil Salesmen.

Try to learn a few basics.

an aside from the time.
Time is early 1960s.

Location is the University of Maryland.

A few of us are out taking a survey among the students on campus.

Clipboard in hand and a short two questions to ask and answers tallied.

Question 1: Should the US send military aid and troops to Vietnam?

Question 2: Should we intervene to aid our ally France that is facing an insurrection in French Indochina?

It was amazing how often we got a "No" on Question 1 and a "Yes" on Question 2.

Have you ever read the Bible Phat?
Phat writes:

Reparations are a liberal social cause that will only add fuel to a fire that has been smoldering far too long.

One of the major Christian Rites is the confession where individuals honestly evaluate their behavior and acknowledge their manifold sins and wickedness, sincerely regret those acts, attempt to make amends and to try to not commit the same errors in the future.

Reparations are not a liberal cause but rather a Christian Duty.

The Cult of "What's in it for ME?" Christianity as found in Phat.
For the vast majority of US Christians, particularly those who claim to be "Biblical" or "Evangelical" or "Fundamentalist" Christians are all part of the three big Christian Cults of ********* and Greed and Immorality; the "What's in it for ME?" cult.

Phat could certainly be called the prototypical example.

Did God build the Ark? During the Exodus did the people have to walk, to gather the mana, the honey, the wild partridges and prepare the food themselves? Did God harvest the surplus, build the granaries, store the surplus and distribute it to the needy? Did God gather up the surplus at the fish fry and distribute it to the hungry? Did Jesus tell us to feed the hungry, comfort the sorrowful, clothe the naked, protect the weak, shelter the homeless, heal the sick?

Did some form of government or leadership supervise and orchestrate the activities?

You are pitiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's not a higher power, it is a tool to allow us to try to do what is right, to acknowledge our manifold sins and wickedness, sincerely regret our past behavior and try to make amends and not repeat past mistakes.

Remember that Phat used bankruptcy to get out of paying his debts.

But then again, you are optimistic about humanism succeeding on this planet and hope that we can all get along for sure.

No stupido!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am not an optimist. Stop saying utterly stupid things.

I am a realist and know for a fact that there is not now and never has been any option other than humans determining success or failure.

My belief is that you are typical of most humans and thus there is almost no chance of there being success.

You and those like you are the problem and there is not any evidence or even any suggestion that any god or God or Jesus can do anything.

Personally, I think that you think we have more time than we actually do to fix our broken system.

Again, stop saying utterly stupid things.

Not just I but many many people here have told you that we already screwed the pooch. We are out of time and it is already too late to avoid very very very painful payments.

It is stupid people like you that are the problem. Your wilful ignorance means that the cost to repay the debt (and it will get repaid) is going to be far higher than if you had been listening to what people here have been trying to teach you over the last 18 years.

Eighteen years Phat.

For 18 years you have been refusing to acknowledge reality or evidence or facts and instead swallowed and continue to swallow the utter bullshit being fed to you.

You and folk like you are the reason the pain required in paying the bill just keeps getting increasingly damaging.

And Putin is NOT trying to grab any bread basket. That's just more of the utter crap you seem to love.

What should concern you is that the US has decided to let the US breadbasket wither and die.

Re: Gold
And if gold were such a great investment for the future why are ALL of them what are touting it happy to take worthless paper in exchange?

Sorry but Phat and far too many Americans have simply never even learned how to think.

Re: R E S P E C T
Phat, really try to think!

Gold is NOT a standard, it is a commodity and like diamonds a commodity that has an artificial price value that is based ALMOST ENTIRELY on the fact that it's availability is artificially controlled.

Re: R E S P E C T
You need to explain to Phat that the 19th century was not 100 years ago and that we are currently in the 21st. century.
