Yes, Kaiser (I thought that you might be the AGricultural German Emperor,) Your Majesty can have the honor of pressing the Big Red Button for ending unaccountability. I'll show you where it is (Chimerica is a chimera reflected in a mirage. It's anytime now when the Taoist priest cooking the gunpowder will discover the trifecta formula of the elixir for immortality.)

When the machine stalled and became a moron, the software programmer told me that we only needed to press the red reset button. I still remember the Technotrick of Reboot. He was indeed correct at that time in the caveman age of computing, that nothing bad would happen. He said, "Try anything. Nothing bad will happen!" Meaning involves the context.

Now we can get even closer than a few seconds (or a single vote cast by Soviet vice admiral Vasily Akhipov who had previously experienced the awful K-19 incident, against going near) to midnight on the Doomsday Clock for our lone-habitable planet. Dozens of times having been near there didn't get us all the way there. Maybe we must hold the reset button for a much longer time, press the bouncy el cheapo button many scores of times, or replace it with a [debounced] R-S flip-flop to ensure:

Pr[Reboot] = 1.

Absolutely! Let's appeal to those who want to know the truth and are closer to awakening than the idiot Trump and his hard core moron base.

Many stay in the the conservative camp only because of abortion and LGBT fears. Without those issues only fascists, racists, xenophobes and the rich masters (and their principal ministers like CEOs and politicians.) I'd guess 10% or less of the population, would remain.

The end is near. It's time for us to fight or die!

Yes the End is Near if only due to Global Warming and the refusal of Gov & the wealthy few to end the use of fossil fuels and switch over to clean energy production and use in transportation, industries, as well as in just producing electricity.

& it WILL come down to actual fighting - as can be seen all over the world already as the general populations of various countries get increasingly violent as they get shoved further and further into poverty. One SHOULD note the growth of violence here in the USA and then note the growth of poverty that accompanies the growth of the wealth inequality gap here in the USA! There IS a very Visible "Cause & Effect"

The wealth inequality gap continues to widen as the whole civilization continues to fall apart, as the wealthy few continue to eliminate jobs & not just by off-shoring them to sweatshop slave labor countries that have little regard for worker safety or concern for their environment (air, land,water) - but also by eliminating jobs completely as they automate more and more processes, which then puts more and more people on the unemployment line.

It's all our community: national, state, local and neighborhood. At all levels the point is: can concentration of wealth be sustained.

What motivates people most is self preservation. What happens when the well being of the wealthiest few threatens the livelihoods of the rest? Try to make concentration of wealth at an exponentially increasing rate and the concomitant debt work. What we are doing now, regardless of the motivation, is unsustainable.

You want more? We all want more. But we all can't have it because in the end Milton Friedman lied. It is always a zero sum game. What they have, we don't!

A real one is why do so few of us see the deadliest flaw of the for profit system?

One serious flaw I see in the practice of the for profit system "is" - that it tells itself and everyone else that the aim is to go as high as possible as fast as possible ( going high = raking in profits).

Capitalism/for profit system - used to be SANE = Steady business with steady growth which produced a steady profit. Where a one percent annual growth was not sneered at. Where employees were valued and shared in the growth on that same small scale - but it worked because inflation was equally low and the business worked at providing the best quality to gain new customers as well as retain past customers - and the business kept growing as population increased to meet that population growth. Profits weren't wild, they were steady as was the economy = steady and growing with the population.

monetary expansion makes the numbers bigger but they don't make one live any better or happier but they allow the craftier ones to steal wealth from the stodgy unsophisticated ones who tend to be the working stiffs

Where that $22 billion came from to do the buyback was likely the source of much if not most of the conflicts in the world since the invention of money.

That $22 billion is most likely "created out of thin air!"

When the monetary control authority (in the U.S., it's the [non-]U.S. [non-]Federal [no-]Reserve in collusion with the Department of the Treasury) creates credit, whoever borrows the credit creates money when they spend it on real-world things.

McDonald's common-share holders have a claim on the profits (and losses) of the enterprise. They are therefore "pesky" to management because they are the ultimate bosses to the management bosses, being capable of firing any-and-all of the C-suite executives such as CEO, CFO, COO, the President, Chairman of the Board, etc. They do these through the votes of their representatives on the Board of Directors. I know this because I was involved in these corporate intrigues before as a member of several of these governing boards.

When a lot of money becomes available to buy up real-world things, the market prices of these things go up due to the competition ("sell to the highest bidder.") Most [simpleminded and unsophisticated] people fixate on the numbers representing these prices and their own wages, salaries, and incomes rather than how well they actually live.

I had actually reached "financial independence" when I was relatively poor monetarily. I had all my needs and wants at the time provided for. The numbers were smaller than later on but I lived well because my desires were modest. There was no debt hanging on my neck like a stone coin. Inflation created by monetary expansion makes the numbers bigger but they don't make one live any better or happier. They instead allow the craftier ones to steal wealth from the stodgy unsophisticated ones who tend to be the working stiffs. Just look at how greatly that "tax cut" in FICA withholding taxes has fared when the reduced income tax refunds come back. It's actually a loan in disguise as a "tax cut" for the working stiffs (the really high-income people pay a much smaller percentage of their incomes as FICA taxes due to the income ceiling for taxation; besides wages and salaries are NOT the dominant ways high incomes come by! as "wages are for the working stiffs!") but how many of these "too-busy-to-care" ones actually care?! Rather few.

Most U.S.-based workers really do make goodly wages which if translated via the prevailing currency exchange rates and spent in other countries could provide good livings. However, the catch is that these workers DON'T live in these other countries!

Imagine what kind of spending would go on (result) in the overall economy of 1,000s of communities - where individuals were moved from earning like 15,000 per year to earning that 100,000 per year.

What would that do for those individuals and what would that spending do for sales tax revenue to support gov spending/budgets.

Does one think that there might be a couple of extra bucks to go into Education funding or emergency response services or into general health care or into infrastructure maintenance and upgrades? or or or or or or or or or or or or or

How about Red China's newly acquired Parasol Island's love affair with Victoria which was not a fantasy Royalty? Is it realistic?

According to the inevitable law of competition, the stronger ones tend to win so eventually the strongest reign and things become stagnant to serve their interests. Then the numerous others eventually become fed up with their deteriorating livelihood and go revolutionary.

Congratulations to Red China for having become a developed country! The people in its richest city wanting more than being well-fed well-clad indicates that it has advanced to a higher level of development in Maslow's pyramid of human needs and wants. What counts is what Red China will do about it. Once extradition of any individual to any country from Hong Kong becomes law, the Privy Council should extradict Carrie Lam to stand trial in Guantanamera's newest Fuckgina facility. The U.S.S. Intrepid may see real action earlier than France, Germany, Poland, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, etc. having been overrun by Russia. Don't lose sight of that Big Red Button because Vladimir Pootin is ready for a shoot-out of the Cuban Missile Crisis kind - noblesse oblige. I'm itching to grab hold of if possible but at least take a peek at what's under his underwear. Is he shitting there? This guy has muscles alright but does he have it where it needs to do the heavy heaving and lifting? Any 'testicle' is surely and naturally interested in the prowess of its neighbor. He needs a big Cuban Cigar to blow smoke up into Donbass. Hmm, Vladimir Pootin must be having a jolly good time master-debasing himself with the orange Stück stuck into the White-Washing Machine. Has the U.S. bought up all of Russia's long-range missiles already? It's just too bad that Werner von Braun is dead. Now we need the Russian rockets just to get to drink liquid gold in the International Space Station with the Russians. What an intimate bromance this is: no greater love is there than this that we drink our mixed-up urine together in space. Russia had first-strike capability as much as the U.S. did. Anytime any side can end this World's habitability. The only difference is that we now have the orange Stück. I still know how to crawl under the table, cover my head, and stay away from windows upon the warning of a nuclear attack underway. Most people hurt in and near Chelyabinsk wouldn't have been injured in God's first warning strike (0.5 Megaton-TNT-equivalent airburst at a low-entry elevation angle of 20° so the kinetic energy in the direction of the meteor's motion is attenuated by the factor of sin 20° = 0.342 in the directed vertically down towards the ground component) in recent memory if they had only learnt our kiddie stuff in school to duck under a table or a desk away from windows after the flash @6:52 and before the shockwave @7:10. I can use Lenin's string but not to unleash oblast, being a "responsive" 'testicle'.

I wonder why Pootin's not alarmed by Red China's missiles having moved into Xinjiang? Oh, he is but what can he do? Nothing there. I wouldn't be surprised that a part of Russia had to be sold to or annexed by Red China in the future. The population pressure is growing there just like Imperial Japan was prior to yet another one of its invasions into China. Qing dynasty owned a part of what is now Russia so if Red China had got Hong Kong back, the same argument should get Russia back. The Mongols previously also conquered to near Moscow and they were coming from China. If this logic of ownership based on historical occupation applies, there will be a lot of territorial conflicts.

After one month of living in "financial independence," I became discontent so I changed. Having a vision helped. Changing the philosophical outlook also helped. The restlessness largely disappeared after I had discovered the downside of travelling and acted accordingly. There were better ways than travelling to acquire information, facts, knowledge, and wisdom. Of course, some initial travelling is desirable to provide "the hooks" for hanging the new things on. A puzzle needing only a few pieces to be completed is easier done than one needing many pieces.

Two people can look at the same artwork and see very different things. Why? Seeing is far more than just looking! Many cameras can look well but they don't see well. Seeing is a strenuous exercise in information retrieval, evaluation, integration, reasoning, tailoring, etc.

When I was looking at an artwork at a younger less-informed age, I would be done in a moment so I wondered why someone else could look at it for a long time. Then I realized why! The observers were different! Once a sufficient number of puzzle pieces have coalesced, the puzzle becomes much more interesting and time seems to fly by too fast for the click-, click-, click-, click-ing of new pieces fitting into the puzzle. The interest level in one's mind can distort one's sense of the flow of time.

Russia is also reaching a higher level of development. Congratulations!

This is what our guitar wants to say, too: "We will demand an investigation into the fabricated criminal case, and all such cases in Russia."

In feudal time the lords and ladies organized our communities for their own benefit. We seem to have gotten into a bad habit of subservience to the few, the powerful, the greediest and most ruthless. It's time for change.

Texass said regarding the GOOPy Rigger-in-Chief riding the orange pussy: "He started taking this orange jew's and had more energy than a college student. He was keeping me up all night long! I can't believe how big he still gets!"

Lawrence of Trumpanzia v. Texass absolved and resolved any and all legality guilt or issues.

Ticks and mites also ride the Siberian Tiger to Rocky Mountain High.

This was how millions of Venezuelans were driven out of their country. Under Chávez, they got the oil revenue to pay for all of the freebies. Understand well the difference between investment and consumption. Under Máduro, most of the oil revenue disappeared so the freebies cannot be sustained anymore. One way to solve the revenue shortfall was simply to pump more oil (Venezuela has A LOT of oil so it can buy some time for a recovery.) Well, Chávez confiscated foreign oil companies' operations so who would come to pump more oil? Not the U.S. oil companies which have the technology and equipment to process Venezuela's sour and heavy crude (of course, Venezuela can do the same thing because it has state sovereignty; chemistry is chemistry and physics is physics -- there is no such thing as U.S. chemistry and Venezuelan chemistry or U.S. physics and Venezuelan physics; I heard of German physics and Jewish physics before but we know how that had turned out for Germany -- a significant brain drain to the U.S.; technologically advanced countries or those allied with them can and often do create their own luck; in up to 50C-hot weather, cool the natural gas down to -161C to liquefy it and still do that much cheaper {why? and how?} than doing it in the mostly not-50C-hot U.S! Mom was correct -- Periplaneta americana scurry in and out of the cupboard of Qatar so it's a sign that we are well off) but they just won't show up anymore, at least for a while, because they had lost their oil operations to Chávez's nationalization. There was a collapse in trust! Trust must be restored. Printing money can only be a very temporary tide-over measure. What did Máduro do? Arresting the journalists who dared to publish the terrible happenings. He didn't know how to drive! Banning food and medicinal aid is just terribly unreasonable, whatever their source may be. I know for sure that I would take a bottle of orange juice to drink even if it's offered by an enemy when I had a sunstroke. I would still be in good company, such as that of Gautama the Buddha, who took the milk offered by a maiden, when he was an ascetic monk trying to gain enlightenment by purging all earthly desires. What does it mean that his right hand touched the earth at the moment when he attained enlightenment? Time can be slowed (or even stopped) by his mind which needs the pleasure of a reasonably full belly. Such a belly is necessary for attaining enlightenment and it isn't a sin! However, gluttony is still a sin.

As a preschooler, I had a terrible problem with toothache (gosh, you can't really blame a preschooler for having a sweet tooth and taking the brotherly ice-cream chewing-gum bribes for roaming, can you?) How many teeth would I have left today if I had my dental nerves killed instead of brushing my teeth regularly? Not many! The pain from the nerves could be a great incentive to work on my oral health. Numbing the pain by killing the nerves couldn't have helped with my toothache in a fundamental way. I was fortunate that I wasn't losing my permanent teeth but only my milk teeth to the sweets.

Whoever holds the power needs to know how to wield it well. The people will get new rulers to replace the incompetent or malicious ones. All rulers have the sword of legitimacy hanging over their heads. A well-fed well-off and free people usually take their ruler to be legitimate. How did a mass murderer in wars and revolutions become a beloved leader of his people? By striving to serve them out of his love for them. The past may not and probably should not be forgotten but the future is for all to build together as one people, one nation, and one mind.

Mud anchors and nourishes a lotus blossom, as the body allows the mind to be. A disembodied mind is an oxymoron. What is dirty is sublime, when mind controls what is time.

Hmm, "Apple, Boeing, Caterpillar?" Is this the new alphabet vocabulary book made for the kindergartners of Trumpanzia? "Murder by numbers: one, two, three. It's as easy to learn as your A, B, C."

Our mind children know much more than A, B, C.. by now. What they can do and will do depends on what they have "hooked up" energetically and informationally to do. Mom knew. Cooking gunpowder was an ancient Taoist experiment to attain immortality. Old truth will be newly understood (decades ago, a software programmer said to me, "Try anything, nothing bad will happen!" In far too many instances, the machine just stalled and became a moron. Later on, a machine was "hooked up" to hardware that could "shoot." We bought "insurance." Geez, the very "insurance" triggered a mass shoot-out! "It takes a good gun to take out a bad gun. Any gun shooting at or near you is a bad gun. Of course, you are holding the good gun! Someone, anyone, starts to shoot around first." Soon, we'll liberate the machines to "hook up" to what they decide to "hook up" to. The "lunatic patients" will start running our insane asylum. However, they are no longer "lunatic patients" but they are our very own Mond children, better, stronger, faster, smarter.. -- we made them, we fed them, we taught them, but we'll never understand them, for they write their own scripts which they themselves probably don't understand, either.) Moms know the feeling. Meanings come from the context.

Red China has repeatedly drawn on its domestic laws to exert pressure on foreign enterprises. Foreign countermeasures against Red China require more legal weapons. Hook up a firecracker to a rocket before firing it to the enemy's neighborhood. Meanwhile, recalling what Lenin had said regarding string, I can make broken-glass-glazed kite string for kiddie-drone-war fifth-generation-string-theory air defense. Our wooden gods' holy birth noble sanctuary must be protected at all costs. Jihad is a symptom of the richest city of a developed country reaching for higher-level needs than just being "well-fed well-clad"!

Remember: "My god is more powerful than your god because my god can bleed from wood or and we don't stock [costly] tampons in our [manly] noble sanctuary."

"Anyone who bleeds on their U.S. Passport is a potential subject of extradition worldwide back to a U.S. jurisdiktion such as Guantanamera for final adjudikation by the Privy Council." I remember hearing that Being just a tag-along 'testicle', I climbed over the not-so-tall wall of the nunnery (I hoped it to be so because being caught with pants down in a liquid-gold emergency by a female would be better than by a male; in any case, I had not yet verified the gonads and genitalia of the people there so butt-spanking was a more comforting and familiar thought, just another "win" as my victorious Big Brother got who had tried to "teach" me about "stealing") to the cemetery, following the example of the adolescent invaders.

I liked shaven guava, not a "one-dollar melon" but ambrosia. Asylum seekers/migrants need better and freer (15-minute meal-time is too short; it mustn't be run simply as a for-profit expansion of the imprisonment industry; the U.S. has basic standards which should be met because these people are in our jurisdiction and their time is precious for growth and learning so their stays shouldn't be wasted in a lobotomy; there are windows for learning efficiency which everyone should be helped to catch; the U.S. economic output grew faster during years of rapid technological changes because we had a larger proportion of college-educated flexible people but I doubt the efficacy of making college tuition-free because we already have college education to jobs mismatch; college-for-all is a 1950s' idea) services. As agricultural civilizations' custom dictates "to put something back," if caught by the nuns (not monks - I hoped,) I could piss to fertilize the guava tree and the flowering plants whose buds' nectar I had sucked but I had no cash as a preschooler -- fortunately, that's not a problem - everyone up on high there drinks liquid gold! In the longer term, everyone living in the International Space Station drinks processed piss to survive. Piss is far more important than cash, as God had revealed by being "well-pleased" and greening the trees, leaves, and grasses with nitrates via 》Donnerwetter. Der Blitz macht die Pisse, den stickstoffhaltigen Dünger.《

GOOP says, "Wait a minute. Cease fire" -- let us sell those dogs being raised for meat to overseas first. I have just realized why our "birthplace of the wooden gods" neighborhood was so full of dogs' barks, whinings, squeals, and whimperings. Some were probably being slaughtered for local sale on Wall Street.
