War

The US needs to get out of Korea before Kim develops a working ICBM.

Kim's development of an ICBM might save us from a war in Korea.

Kim learned the lessons from Iraq and Libya.

Good reminder that US spies lie to provoke war.
"“North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, according to a confidential July assessment from the Defense Intelligence Agency…”
I do not believe this. Why believe a one-sentence conclusion that’s leaked to the Washington Post? The Post is a CIA vehicle. Why believe some unknown intelligence source with no other information to back it up? Why believe this when such leaks are used to manipulate public opinion at critical junctures? If such important information is for real, why would it be made public via a leak? Why not come out in the open? Why not inform members of Congress and have them release it? Come out of the shadows and speak like a man."
But if true, that's a great reason not to go to war.

Economy

The stock market is crazy.
"hese dangers start with the market’s demented internals—such as Amazon at 187X earnings, Netflix at 219X or Tesla valued at $62 billion. And the latter is after the company racked-up an unbroken string of cumulative losses which total $3.6 billion over the last decade, and with no profits visible anywhere on the horizon, either.
What is visible, by contrast, is the sheer mania in the capital markets which have fed its cash burning machine with more than $10 billion of capital—-including last night’s announcement that Tesla will issue $1.5 billion of junk bonds to fund the launch of its Model 3 “people’s car”."
But Musk is government's golden boy.

Federal Reserve

Bank of England caught in a 100 year old lie.

Police State

Police are subject to different laws than the rest of us.
"By shielding police from charges of grave misconduct while prosecuting otherwise law-abiding Americans for the most trivial “offenses,” the government has created a world in which there are two sets of laws: one set for the government and its gun-toting agents, and another set for you and me."
Yep.

Federal Reserve

WoW in-game money worth more than Venezuelan money. What a great lesson in subjective value.

This article is a bunch of crap. Cronyism is why we don't have male birth control.
