  1. Great post! That’s the best argument I’ve heard to stay in the EU. I’m hesitant to criticize, especially since it’s an emotional topic for you, but I will say that you mention that the EU is democratic. This is something most in the US don’t understand as well, in the US we are not a democracy we are in fact a republic. A democracy has major drawbacks and some of them are the very thing that people seem to get angry at in the UK toward the EU. A democracy meaning rule by magirity, is the same as mob rule. If a mob drags a man from his home and hangs him with no trial, he was democratically hung because that was the will of the majority. The problem is that democracy doesn’t protect groups or individuals from mob rule by the use of law, it has to cave to the will of whoever is the largest group. This is a complex subject that one would have to research on ones own for information because it’s too much to post here. A good book that states the role of law clearly is “The Law” by Fredric Bastiat.
  2. USPS Under Fire

    Good video, I agreed with them all the way till blaming it on racism. I think the postal service does a great job and I would like to see how much they lose every year if they were allowed to do accounting like a typical public company. From what I’ve read they’re forced to prefind their pensions but I’m sure how true that is. In my opinion fedex and ups simply shouldent exist for the simple reason that they use the post office to make deliveries for them sometimes, therefore the post office subsidies private companies. The postal service should be the only way you send any pieces of mail. The other thing they should do is get involved in emailing sensitive documents like mortgage contracts, blueprints, sensitive business communications on a super incripted separate email network that is guaranteed security and privacy by the postal service. That would give them a new revenue model. They could even have the authority to charge 1cent for any and all emails that are sent by any email service. That idea may seem a bit out there but it’s far better than loosing money and making up the difference by asking the government for money that gets added to the national debt. It makes the business model more honest because when they say in the video that it’s great that to mail a letter only costs .49 it really doesn’t because the loss goes to the national debt which eventually goes to the tax payers to make up the difference PLUS interest that has accumulated on the debt!
  3. Really?? That’s strange, sorry about that. I don’t know why? Honestly though I’d love to hear your opinion.
  4. Ha ha, what is it that you think? I’m genuinely interested to hear youe opinion
  5. No one knows?? Is this a fake or what? It’s only a Sacagawea dollar so I don’t think it would be worth faking but I’ve never seen that hologram before
  6. Does ngc make different holograms? Two coins that are the same but from different mints have a different hologram?
  7. It’s the same over here in the US, watching politicians ask stupid questions to Fed chair Janet Yellen. They ask her things that are either about basic functions of the fed that a free tour of any of the federal reserve buildings would give you the answer to, or they ask questions that are outside of the scope of the fed and more on topic with what THEY should be working to change in congress. Remember that these are just joe blow people that although may have a lot of money aren’t necessarily intelligent especially when faced with the many topics that are encountered for debate and vote. I watch senate hearings about finance where they invite various economists and you can tell that the senators who attend only show up to get a sound bite question in and then leave the meeting, any response usually leaves them with a dumb look of confusion because they don’t understand what is being said to them.
  8. Whos first post?? Not mine, I’ve posted quite a few times. I don’t know exactly what your getting at but if you disagree with my opinion which is fine, yours is probably more informed than mine, feel free to state that opinion in a post. Please don’t accuse me of “trolling” if that is indeed what you’re doing.
  9. The heart of the matter can all be boiled down to the U.K. getting caught up in the lies that lead to global collectivism. I’m reminded of this quote from Atlas Shugged: "You have reached the blind alley of the treason you committed when you agreed that you had no right to exist. Once, you believed it was "only a compromise": you conceded it was evil to live for yourself, but moral to live for the sake of your children. Then you conceded that it was selfish to live for your children, but moral to live for your community. Then you conceded that it was selfish to live for your community, but moral to live for your country. Now, you are letting this greatest of countries be devoured by any scum from any corner of the earth, while you concede that it is selfish to live for your country and that your moral duty is to live for the globe." -John Galt
  10. And that right there is why the EU is doomed to fail. No rule of law that’s known and predictable, just commands from a group when it suits them. Also there’s no common values between nations that are so different and a lot of the countries economy’s are far different than others but they’re forced to have the same currency and interest rates.
  11. Of course it’s not friendly. Trump has the view that most countries have been stealing jobs from the US by selling products that are subsidized by either government funds or by country’s devaluing their currency’s. It’s part of his America first strategy. I agree with his reasoning but I think that it’s mainly Asian countries that are to blame. I think we would all do better if we choose some friends to trade with a little more carefully and actually formed a free and fair trade union where we could all have an equal footing.
  12. I think you’re right about that! People will want to run to “safety” when a collapse or war happens. I also think you’re correct that banks are all just being propped up with fake money ad that can’t last forever. The talk of fixing financial systems is a much larger problem and much more complex but it still has to happen. My point is that all of the fixes that need to happen would be much easier with a union of English speaking nations.
  13. That’s why we’d have a trade alliance so things like that wouldn’t happen. Right now Ireland plays games with corporate tax rates and subsidies to steal corporations. They make it extremely profitable for a company to domicile there. Stuff like that would end if we had a trade alliance and that’s why it needs to be English speaking nations that do it. We all share a history and similar values and morals. It would be a far easier Union than the one you have with Europe.
  14. Under a deal like that Austria, Poland, Japan and Ireland could probably be swayed to join. Then it would just be Germany and France to support every immigrant from whatever dung heap they crawled out of. If we could box out China and all third world nations from our trade alliance we might actually have a functioning economy that actually produces things instead of all manufacturing going to the poorest countries in the worlds countries that play games with their currency.
  15. Thank god you kept your own currency or you would all be screwed!!
