Plunder Capitalism – “I deplore the tax cut that has passed Congress. It is not an economic policy tax cut, and it has nothing whatsoever to do with supply-side economics. The entire purpose is to raise equity prices by providing equity owners with more capital gains and dividends. In other words, it is legislation that makes equity owners richer, thus further polarizing society into a vast arena of poverty and near-poverty and the One Percent” – Paul Craig Roberts
In case you missed Bitcoin’s epic rise… – “Coinbase, the world’s largest crypto brokerage, added more than 100,000 new accounts on Thanksgiving alone, and nearly 10 million new accounts over the last 12 months.

The U.S. Government Creates and Exacerbates the Nuclear Threat – “The whole situation is a “Catch 22” scenario: damned if you do, and damned if you don’t. The problem: we’re American citizens and this is our country. The concurrent problem? It is our country that caused this predicament to occur with North Korea…in a pattern of American imperialism that has been going on actively for about a hundred years.” – Jeremiah Johnson
What Went Wrong in Charlottesville: At All Levels, Government Is Still the Problem – “Corruption. Graft. Intolerance. Greed. Incompetence. Ineptitude. Militarism. Lawlessness. Ignorance. Brutality. Deceit. Collusion. Corpulence. Bureaucracy. Immorality. Depravity. Censorship. Cruelty. Violence. Mediocrity. Tyranny. These are the hallmarks of an institution that is rotten through and through. What you smell is the stench of a dying republic. Our dying republic. The American experiment in freedom is failing fast.” – John W. Whitehead
