Posted in: In 2nd day of anti-Trump protests, civil rights a top concern See in context

These protesters are not unlike the riot-inciting race-baiters that hyped up the violence in Missouri and later in Texas. There are also regular peaceful protesters, and I respect their right to protest. But, the violence and extreme profanity does more damage to their cause.

The rioters clearly are ignorant of what democracy means. The electoral college system is one of the best checks and balances against the tyranny of the simple majority.

Trump should just let Hillary talk as much as possible. After just a few seconds, her voice grates on any thinking person's nerves, especially without hearing protection. Why is she ALWAYS SHOUTING? Is it a symptom of her brain trauma? (Austin Powers: " ... I'm having difficulty controlling THE VOLUME OF MY VOICE.")

Watch her eyes shifting independently.

Nah, it's just an allergy attack. Trump was in the crowd. It must be that. Just a frog in her throat. She just needs a glass of water, for the frog. Nevermind mind that she "lost her footing" (and her shoe) while the human wall blocked the view. Nothing to see. Move along.

As SoS, Clinton got her hands bloodied by her actions in relation to Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Egypt, Syria, and Libya (probably others as well). Trump has ruffled the feathers of some who choose to be offended. Which is more dangerous again?!?

Posted in: U.S., China formally join Paris climate accord See in context

Isn't it interesting to anyone else that the draft communique that was leaked before anyone even arrived seems as if everything was actually predetermined?

"As the WSJ also reported earlier, "President Obama and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping stood with U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to announce the U.S. and China’s formal adoption of the international climate change agreement reached in Paris in December 2015. They also detailed a road map to achieving emissions reductions in commercial aircraft and for phasing out hydrofluorocarbons." Which is completely meaningless, as none of the provisions of the Paris Treaty are enforceable, and Beijing has zero intentions of actually following through with the toothless treaty.

In any case, thanks to Bloomberg, according to the leaked draft G-20 communique, global leaders "should make full use of a range of policy options, including fiscal as well as monetary measures, to revive economic growth that still falls short of desired levels."

In other words, even more global debt, even more liquidity injections by central banks, even higher asset prices, even more social discontent, nationalistic passions and populism.

Among the other G-20 (pre)decisions in the communique draft seen by Bloomberg:

Financial market volatility poses downside risks to growth: draft communique Fiscal strategies equally important as monetary ones: draft communique Excess volatility, disorderly moves in foreign exchange markets hurt stability: draft G-20 recognizes excess steel capacity as global issue: draft Subsidies can contribute to global excess capacity: draft UK vote to leave EU adds to global economic uncertainty: draft *Terrorism a serious challenge to international security: draft And so on, and so forth, as yet another meeting of the world's "best and brightest" leaders leads to absolutely no new ideas how to fix a problem that was caused by debt than just creating even more debt, meaning that the debt level is about to truly take off. We know how it all ends; the only thing we are curious about is if the Chinese will force an already humiliated Obama to fly commercial in his final return to the US... coach class."

Posted in: Gold demand jumps amid global turmoil: industry body See in context

JeffLee, the problem with the paper currencies of today is that they are backed by nothing more than promises. Unfortunately, we all have to use the existing currencies for our exchanges these days, and those currencies are constantly being debased, robbing you of the worth of your savings.

"The use of gold as proto-money has been traced back to the fourth millennium BCE when the Egyptians used gold bars of a set weight as a medium of exchange, as had been done earlier in Mesopotamia with silver bars."

Armed Robbery isn't a misdemeanor. It does seem that his conscience isn't completely obliterated, though. Good on him for having the courage to turn himself in.
