Hijacking for visibility. Santa inc comments section still up. Youtube controls the terms of engagement on their site, why didn't they delete the comment section for Santa inc when that's what they did for POTATUS' videos? Because it suits their narrative.

Reeks of a virtual false flag, setting up the scapegoats for physical ones- be ready.

No, it's literally you clowns taking the bait and trying to generate controversy for a terrible movie. We get it, it's garbage, like everything the cast has been in, but I had zero idea about this stupid show if not for you all running endless advertisements for it here. All it is a reminder of is for us not to give Hollywood a dime since they deeply and sincerely hate us.

It's also a move by the pedo elites to direct anger away from them and towards meaningless divisions instead, part of their plan to get a race war instead of a revolution (peaceful or otherwise) against them. Need to keep an eye on enemy movements to avoid the trap.

According to you, we should have just ignored the "Cuties" movie instead of making it an issue. That's just doing nothing in the face of evil.

Yes! America has a Grand and Honored Tradition of effective BOYCOTTS: Remember the BOSTON TEA-PARTY!

We absolutely NEED to engage and promote BOYCOTTS against the people and Companies WE ARE FUNDING, who want to DESTROY US. And again we are paying them to do it. That's Nuts.

To be fair, they boycotted taxes and govt overreach mostly. Nowadays we’re just half-a$$ing corporate boycotts, while we still watch the NFL, tweet from our iPhones, pay all our taxes, and follow ATF regulations like it even matters. I’m sure nobody here is planning on tax evasion even if the Build Back Better bill is on the verge of passing.

I've been boycotting NYC Banks for a VERY LONG TIME. Their first time breaking the 18% Usury law was enough for me. I couldn't pay them off right away, but I never charged anything on them again.

But that's been quite a while. Carter Administration I think.

President_Elect_Pepe 22 points ago +24 / -2

Honestly they will.

Not because they have principles. But because it is (importantly, transparently) at the behest of deep pocket oil companies.

I support this type of unification but it’s sad that it’s really just another lobbyist scheme.

It’s funny how they can discover creative ways to win when campaign dollars are at risk.

Notice how they have to signal to everyone it’s for oil companies too, think about that.

Here’s an opportunity for a group of politicians to connect with their base and secretly use a lobbyist goal to pretend to fight on principle. Yet they purposefully choose to transparently make it a corporate fight.

Why do that? Because by signaling to the Democrat / media complex that this is a money focused corporate goal they negate the outright political response from AOC types who will pick a different battle.

If this was a straight principled position it would be outright holy war declared in the news tomorrow.

And now you know why the GOP, even though they are better than the Dems still suck.

Imagine being a good politician who would actually leverage this. Take a topic like, say election reform, and bring it to the lobbyists who want YOUR support and ask them to get behind you. What a novel concept which is completely foreign to GOP corporate slaves.

By that logic, if you like

Then you must love government, right??

Oh yeah, it’s something called nuance…Just because the GOP is virtue-signaling to a lobby doesn’t mean that we should hate the industry, but it also doesn’t mean we should like the lobby either.

I agree with your sentiment, however, I reclaim the term "first world", because there's no objective definition as to what IS first world, second world, or third world, AND there's no objective terminology on how 2nd moves to 1st, vice versa, or how third moves to 1st, and vice versa - OTHER than the US stating "hold my beer".

I reclaim the term to its original meaning - 1st world are Allies to Nato, 2nd world are Allies to the Warsaw Pact, and third world nations are neutral.

Their hijacking of the terminology, I believe, is based in removing references to the fact that the Warsaw Pact exists and is specifically designed to be our aggressor.

Anytime someone states the terminology - 1st world, 2nd world, 3rd world in context to how wealthy, or how industrialized a nation is, I tell them they're full of shit.. and when they get all pissy with me, I tell them there's a very simple exercise to PROVE they're full of shit - define each of the terms objectively, and define how a nation moves between the tiers. It's an open book question, go search it up on the internet and come back to, take a week to do it...

Check mate you stupid son of a bitch! (not you fren, but the subject of this particular hypothetical conversation).

The Democrats are narcissistic cheaters, but the RINOs are spineless cucks.

And somehow we keep electing the same type of people on our side, decade after decade, as the core of American life,liberty, and happiness is gutted out for more and more powerful pro-censorship corporate America. Anyone who’s heard the phrase, “conservatives are losing the culture war” knows exactly what I’m talking about.

I'm with you in spirit, but I've got a pretty good idea how this ends.

You're talking about taking on entities that start World Wars to enhance their profits, and they control the regulatory agencies that would immediately climb up the arse of the competitors. If that doesn't work, a few car bombs will send the needed message.

Only way to take down these banks is to End the Fed and let the whole system crash, once and for all.

What you're describing sounds an awful lot like a barter system, which is very inefficient.

Currency is not the problem. In fact currency is one of the greatest inventions we've ever come up with.

The issue lies with who controls the supply of currency. Right now, it is controlled by private interests with no accountability. This is problematic and must be changed.

War_Hamster 5 points ago +5 / -0

....that's just crazy talk. I think we should go back to Easter Island statues.

In all seriousness, crypto has the potential to solve part of the problem, but it has to be accompanied by some sort of physical currency as well. Can't have the whole financial system shut down due to power outage or EMP.

Physical needs to be regulated by a responsible government body, and that is apparently something we lack right now.

Dfalt 4 points ago +4 / -0

Barter economies of all kinds eventually develop into a currency economy because having a standard of value is infinitely simpler than managing value on a case-by-case basis. The trick is to use a tangible, not easily reproducable asset like gold/silver coins as currency and not allow banks to issue a substitute (paper currency was originally a certificate for a set amount of gold/silver) that they can easily produce more of than the real currency they have on hand. Also ban usury outright but allow banks/lenders to charge a transaction fee to make sure the business is worth their while.

saltyviewer123 2 points ago +2 / -0

This is why we should use poo as currency. Dry and shape it into coins. Eventually is biodegrades from existence thus curbing inflation naturally but also self regulates based on population growth.

IneffectiveDetective 2 points ago +2 / -0

No, JPOW can print $2T any time Hunter Biden needs a new loan. When we were gold and silver backed, we had to have it matched against physical assets on hand in the banks.

I think what you’re thinking is that oil prices are traded in USD valuations even among other countries not dealing with the US. This was a hot topic with Russia earlier this year wanting to raise barrel prices with the Arab nations because they’re operating at a loss by being under $70/barrel.

"Federal funding" comes from the citizens of states in the first place. So all they need to do is treat the IRS the same way they treat the DEA when it comes to weed. Don't allow them in, refuse to cooperate with any of their agents. They simply do not have enough people to enforce income taxes on even the smallest state.

Directional 5 points ago +5 / -0

That would be epic. Yes. But the absolute worst thing you can do with your money in an MMT hyperinflationary system is to store it as cash.

You need to store it in things that will store value (such as physical gold/silver) or are outside the system (cryptocurrency).

5
trauncher 5 points ago +5 / -0

I'm 60% physical metals now... some crypto too. you are absolutely correct. most people have a tough time managing illiquidity if they need their money to survive. gold doesn't spend well until you convert it. :-). I kind of like the idea of gold and silver BBs that floated around a few years ago.

Pros. measured in fraction of grams. easy to carry in a little bag, easy to weigh/spend, and fairly easy to test.. small enough that counterfeits have about as much effect as fake bank notes have now... but not a fiat currency, and dependent on nothing but metal value.

4
Directional 4 points ago +4 / -0

Yeah. Most people aren’t even disciplined enough to keep money in savings, let alone in a way that preserves value.

I don’t know what BBs are, but I like the Goldback idea, circulating in two states now. That’s one way, but you pay a premium (20%) for them.

I am kicking around the idea of quarter eagles and using them as ~$500 equivalents (in today’s value) after the dollar fails.

3
zooty 3 points ago +3 / -0

All of the latter are various levels of being able to be taken away from you or not mobile at all. Not that they're worthless by any means but Bitcoin does offer something unique.

Also not to be forgotten for value is transferable skills. Farming, welding, medical, shooting skills... The ability to generate value can help both directly and indirectly.

What I’ve come to realize from all the nonsense going on around the world and the country is that the states truly do have a lot more power than the federal government. We have had it upside down.

Republicans conveniently forget how much damage Lincoln did to the republic.

Never thought about it like that. But true in a sense. We would have had two countries.

People forget about chemical byproducts of fossil fuel production/consumption. Wind and sun don't produce the chemical materials necessary for modern life. Costs go up and cause us to work more to pay for things that were cheap with widespread coal/oil/natgas use. Hence a net carbon use gain anyway, requiring us to make chemicals on purpose instead of as byproducts.

Exactly. We're WAAY too dependent on plastic to ever completely give up oil.

Gab's CEO keeps shouting at the highest of roof tops about the parallel economy. Because once we gain control over our own financial institutions that value our constitution and our rights we have a real way to fight this tyranny.

Without this I believe we wouldn't be able to "separate" and quietly methodically build America 2.0

Gab's CEO also keeps threatening to ban everyone for "fed posting"

His censors have already hidden perfectly innocuous posts. Fuck, at least twatter has the decency to notify you whenever they find you guilty of wrongthink.

If there is to be a parallel economy, then its stewardship will have to go to people with the balls to defend it by any means necessary.

Torba doesn't have the balls.

Fair enough I don't really use traditional social platforms so... Wouldn't really know just get these email spam messages and like reading their approach to a an alternative social platform.

Something tells me it will end up like all the others, a rich CEO who steps down and the corporate woke mob consumes it in the end.

Aaron Shwartz warned reddit and what happened!

Torba also disabled Gab's ability to federate with other Mastodon-based sites, so he essentially cut Gab off from the parallel economy.

Somewhat fake headline here: Nothing about corporate wokeism, only mineral oil resources.

Nothing to counter cultural Marxism.

Yeah though they do mention corporate wokeism in first paragraph and climate change crap at the end of the article its not really about fighting cultural marxism or Crt

Don't threaten. These woke banks make their decision and need to be punished for their anti-American BS. Remove the funds now. How else will they change their ways?

Deposit your money in a local credit union that invests back into your local community.

Might be a dumb question but how can you tell if a bank is a local credit union and not a federal or central bank?

Badfinz_FL 3 points ago +3 / -0

+1 for credit unions, they are pretty based usually

Sounds good, but what about debit/credit cards? Will these cards be accepted by retailers online and in other states?

1
Froynlavenfroynlaven 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yes, they're almost always on the visa or MC network

Tell them to offer crypto services. It's really just a small transition for small retailers to accept crypto currencies and once they do that then small credit unions can have a global network to which they can offer their customers. The only reason this problem exists for small credit unions is because of Visa and other networks. Coins like XLM and XRP can be transferred for literal pennies across the globe.

My issue with crypto is that there are SO many of them. Which do you put money in? Bitcoin? Etherium? Doggecoin? There are hundreds.

Where were these do-nothings when banks were financially fucking over alt-tech? Too little, too late. Either establish a precedent with actual legislation or fuck off.

If you live in a Red State and your Treasury Secretary hasn't joined, email them. I already contacted mine and I'm waiting for a reply.

This is a real weapon that needs to be used. Banks have a 0% reserve ratio thanks to the FED. Pulling that much money would bankrupt them overnight.

Parallel economy first, parallel government second. Then reabsorb original government after its citizens destroy them selves, then slash it to a safe size, cancer free.
