 A North Korean EMP Attack Can Create 90+ Fukushimas in the U.S.
 - Mac Slavo - ShtfPlan
Setting aside the sensationalist fearmongering of the article, the fact is that the NRC requires U.S. nuclear power plants to be able to shut down safely in the event of an EMP attack in addition to tornados, floods, electrical outages etc. Ain't gonna happen.

 Six Ways US Stocks Most Overvalued in History
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
The problem with the current massive indebtedness of countries is that the central banks are now creating fantasy currency to accommodate the financial sins. The citizens who question the gargantuan printing of fiat currency become nervous, obviously, but the central banks assure them there's nothing to worry about. Wanting to believe the CBs so they can invest and borrow more, everything goes back to its bubble norm.

 The Flat Earth Society Responded To A Tweet By Elon Musk: ‘Thanks For The Question’
 - Mac Slavo - ShtfPlan
Thanks for letting me state my opinion! Your comment is insulting. Try as I might I am yet to find any scientific evidence of AGW or the existence of a God, Heaven or Hell. As is said "ignorance is bliss" Now I am going out to do some Happy Clapping.

You are entitled to put opinions into whatever category you like . . Whether it holds any credence is for others to be convinced not you! Personally I see the comment as ignorant as that of the flat earth believers . . to compare this to religious belief is hardly an argument merely that ignorant people always abound!

 Peter Schiff Warns Of CRASH: ‘Everybody Is Going To Get Wiped Out!’
 - Mac Slavo - ShtfPlan
"Schiff also said no one knows when this is going to happen for sure, only that it will happen." Peter has been warning of the next crash for years. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. So it may come...someday. He seems to forget that the central banks and the "too-big-to-fail" banks are in control. They will keep the ponzi scheme going until the Dow reaches a million unless the public loses confidence in their currencies or run out of borrowed money.

 Meet The World’s Most Powerful Bitcoin Backers
 - Oilprice.com - oilprice.com
Why run a business or work for one when you can mine bitcoins for the price of the servers and electricity? The higher the price of bitcoin, the more profitable it is to mine it. Why buy them from someone else? Why doesn't the Federal Reserve mine or buy bitcoins to pay off their debt. Same for the US Treasury department and the EU. Of course, you might find it difficult to eat if all the farmers are busy mining bitcoins.

I put the Flat Earthers in the same category as those who believe there is a God, a Heaven and a Hell.

The majority of Humans are ignorant. Private central banking is a prime example of what the majority will swallow as a working financial system. Flat earth idiots just extend the lunacy.

 Why It's Important to Define Money Correctly
 - Frank Shostak - 
A quote: "Money is gold, and nothing else" - J. P. Morgan, 1912. There is an important definition within that statement. Nowadays, many repeat it wrongly, putting the cart before the horse, so to speak, as: 'gold is money'. With this interpretation, so too could Euros, Dollars and all other fiat currencies be classed as 'money', as in 'Euros are money' etc. So, anything else, other than money, (as defined by Mr. Morgan) must be a currency, its value defined only by the circumstances of its time and place in the world - a temporal thing. Gold - eternal. QED

Shallow it may be, but it's frickin' hilarious to laugh at all the hypocritical jerks who gave Trump ("I'm no angel") endless grief for his "when you're a celebrity you can grab them by the p*ssy" line now tell us to overlook this creep ("I'm sanctimonious because I'm on the Left") because he was just joking around. ;)

Seems rather shallow to fault Franken for a tasteless comedic prank after electing the "grab them by the p*ssy" adulterer to the presidency.

 Brexit, Gold and Harold Wilson's 'Pound in Your Pocket', 50 Years On
 - Adrian Ash - Bullion Vault
Good points, however Brexit is not entirely about the value of the pound or the cost of living. Many of those who voted in favour of leaving the UK have mentioned that they are prepared to absorb financial pain in order to preserve their sovereignty.

 - James Howard Kunstler - 
I happened to read one of Franken's book about all of the hypocrites in office, business,etc. his sanctimonious air notwithstanding I thought the guy might have some possibilities. After his election to the senate he quickly devolved into one of the creeps he previously railed about. What intrigues me is what seems to happen to almost all elected to national office in the USA. Within months they become the classless and inert scumbags like the rest inhabiting the halls of power in American government. Oh, yeah, don't worry too much about this freak show masquerading as a worthy effort to bring sexual outlaws to justice. It's mostly just an act to once again convince us that government works like it's supposed to. Bill Clinton's having a lot of fun, though.

Kunstler has a talent for summarizing complex situations in a pithy and entertaining way. The Middle East is being reduced to a drawn out proxy war between US and Russia with China waiting in the wings to scoop up the profits.

 Spanking the Monkey

They wonder why Russia Today has such a big following. Real news is much more interesting than the MSM circus. Especially when you question more.

 Spanking the Monkey
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
James, I've been wondering about the Hollywood Spank the Monkey thing ever since the advertising firms came out with their "Can't Wait to Get Their Hanes on You" underwear commercials ~ and their Speedo swim suit commercials. The commercials raise the opposing questions: 1) Is it that men want to show off their stuff ?" ~ or ~ 2) Is it that women want to see something provocative / intriguing ? The answer to one of those questions is getting either men or women to spend money on Christmas gifts ! !
