Low Rates Encourage National Debt

Like refinancing and spending even more

Ted Cruz has recently made mention of the national debt being a concern for Republican politicians despite recently helping to add trillions of dollars to it.

Recent pandemic relief has pushed the debt over 27 trillion dollars, an amount which raises concerns of some people.

In 2016, while campaigning, Trump said he would eliminate the debt within 8 years.

Almost all countries in the have a debt to GDP ratio under 1, where the US is not above 1. Traditionally, being above 1 is seen as dangerous, but people are saying that it’s ok in our situation.

Listen to this guy talk about the debt in 2012 when it was around only 16 trillion.

Sweden has a debt to GDP of about 0.35

Lunatic Scientists Draw Conversation to Moon Water

Oxidane is water for pedants.

It’s been assumed for quite a long time that there is water on the Moon. Recently, some observations show that this is literally true.

An important part of future lunar exploration is using the resources that are there. Water is heave and we don’t want to have to carry it all the way up there.

The most recent manned Moon mission was in 1972 and they had to take their own water which was no small part of the challenge of going there.

Even though there may be water in the sunbathed areas of the Moon, radiation from the sun is still a huge concern.

It would be kinda funny if Trump wanted to make a Space Navy because of this news.

None of this really changes any of the plans to get people back on the Moon by 2024.

Egyptian Fear over Ethiopian Dam Highlighted by Trumpian Trump Remark

Just as a certain something rolls down hill, water flows down river.

In his typical style, Trump expressed concern about what Egypt might do over concerns about the impact of filling and operating a dam in Ethiopia.

Egypt has been concerned about the impact of this dam since the project began to be planed in the 50’s.

Conflict over dams on this part of the Nile are nothing new. Several dams were built in Sudan in the 60’s and 70’s.

There are some who claim that the negative effects of filling and operating the dam could be largely mitigated, but this would likely mean three whole sovereign nations working together.

Egyptian GM Bassem Amin recently won a game of chess.

Ethiopia has expressed concern that Trump would say something like that.

A poor structure leads to future disaster.

The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has rendered a unanimous decision -7 to 0- to disallow signature verification on mail in voting on the basis that it’s not required by current law.

Combined with another decision that will allow for mail in ballots to arrive after November 3rd and without an appropriate postmark, the system in place would seem to be built to allow fraud.

In a 1764 election, Benjamin Franklin was able to take advantage of the structure of Pennsylvania’s voting system to run for a County position and a City of Philadelphia position at the same time.

A contested result could cause chaos, but in the past, similar situations have worked themselves out.

The Philidelphia Eagles managed to beat the NY Giants by one point (22-21) yesterday

Despite the recent court rulings, the plebs are still being told they have to get their vote in by the 3rd.

Oil Stocks Waiver After Biden Comments at Debate

Among other things, he said we have a dark winter ahead.

Major oil companies are trading about 1% lower than yesterday before Biden made a negative comment about the oil industry at last night’s debate.


Biden said he would end the oil industry when Trump asked him as part of a less chaotic performance than the first debate.

In Pennsylvania, oil was first discovered in 1859 in Titusville.

In all likelihood, Biden was trying to say we need to end the oil industry at some point, but just failed to specify when in the heat of the moment. However, tens of millions of people whose lives and livelihoods depend on this industry may have been a bit spooked by the statement.

The Department of Energy is hoping to encourage the use of nuclear power generation.

Biden’s son has worked for a company in the energy sector before, so maybe he knows a thing or two about it.

Trump Uses Both Hands

Human appendages are sometimes used to lift things.

Advertisements

In a move reminiscent of Mark Zuckerberg, while interviewed, the President of the United States of America used more than one hand to take a sip of water.

The ensuing discussion has some people worried that he may be showing signs of neurological disease such as Parkinson’s.

Some tremors have kept people talking about them and the neurological implications of them for upwards of 800 years.

Whether or not you notice it, tremors can be a sign of neurodegenerative disease and even an indication of increased mortality. But some studies do not find this association, rather that it’s just an old person thing.

The movement of this tiny glass coincides with the homeowner water bill relief package allocations from the CARES Act.

Primary Writing Tremor generally has a frequency of 5 to 7 hertz.

Debate Tonight

Advertisements

A normal debate would have a single topic known in advance.

While it is possible to find something unprecedented in almost any event, tonight’s debate has an easy one to pick out. The debate’s organizer intended to silence the participants at various times.

Each side will have 2 minutes for each 15 minute segment, uninterrupted time.

Even though it’s kinda like being preemptively put in time out, strangely, this moves the event closer to the format of an actual debate.

In 1948 a presidential primary debate focused on outlawing the Communist party and in this one the opening statements were 10 times as long!

Some people think that there should be no muting because it can only make Trump look good and throw off Biden or the moderator, but this probably can’t stop either thing from happening.

Some of the recent residents of the ISS have made it safely back in time to watch the debates from solid ground.

Some of the information obtained from NPR concerning this national event was modified by the other party at 9:50 ET

Congress Fails to Pass Additional Stimulus

House Leader continues to talk with the Executive branch.

The federal government is bound and determined to deliver another massive stimulus package to the US citizenry, but they just can’t decide how to do it.

In this recently denied legislation, $300 per week additional unemployment and about $500 billion total aid were attempted.

Even just the talk of stimulus is having a negative effect on the value of the dollar.

Currency debasement is nothing new.

Despite there being a whole lot more money flying around from recent stimulus and more to come, It isn’t quite the same as printing money since it comes in the form of debt. But experts say we shouldn’t worry about additional trillions of debt.

Josh Hawley keeps trying to hold Big Tech accountable tho.

This stimulus was an amendment to the UIGHUR Act of 2019. ¯\(°_o)/¯

Robin Hood: All Parts of the Political Compass

A compass typically helps you find your place in the world.

Everyone finds themselves at some coordinate on the political compass, but Robin Hood seems to be all parts of it.

One interpretation of how this English legend would plot on this chart has him prominently in 4 out of 4 sections. 

This would imply that Robin Hood is the very identity of all possible political opinions.

Robin Hood is usually depicted wearing a green outfit and may be as old as the 1400’s.

It’s possible that this compass misses the mark since RH preferred to steal from tax collectors, yet even if this is true, he’d still land within the target.

Recently, Robin Hood has been slightly overshadowed by a broker called Robinhood and people shilling affiliate links like this one.

England’s modern avatar of Robin Hood has been made aware of this compass meme.
