If you are a lover of #Logic and #Whitty #Satire, this is so worth hearing at least the first 5 minutes of Mike Pesca's #Podcast embedded below. There's 1:15 in ad content at the start. He's exposing the absurdity of the responses by Trump types of, "No you are the racist!".

Episode 597: That Time We Shorted America, Part One

I'm posting this to @Stock Picking Discussion because it's informative but woefully wrong due to omissions in reporting about what #Shorting #Stocks is all about. They are #Mathematically correct when they talk about having no theoretical maximum amount you can lose if things go the wrong way. They are terribly wrong in reporting as if there isn't a responsible reason for shorting securities. If you only listen to the embedded podcast below, you would wrongly assume that shorting is just gambling and dangerous gambling at that. That can be true but is not normally the case.

The Trump administration wants access to encrypted messages

Yes #WTF! The #Trump has decided to eliminate the #Right to #Privacy in the #USA. I can see the short-sightedness of his base of support being in favor of this because they think if it happens they will be in power forever.

How President Trump's Friends and Family Rebranded The Swamp - SOME MORE NEWS

So this is what #America's #GOP types have decided they wanted to defend. #Politics are heading to a new low in this world and that's a really low bar. It's like they all read the script for the #Taboo show and thought, 'Remember the good old days of the Dutch East India company?' #Republican's seem to have no soul.

What's this #taboo reference? After watching #MeetThePress this morning it was pretty obvious that they just want to throw the #racist accusation out over and over again instead of talking about the economy, Iran, or #patriotism.
It appears to me that the USA is harboring and/or defending many industries that treat people in ways that the Dutch East India company was when England was harboring and/or defending them. The TV show titled Taboo took a trip into the way the world worked back then. It seems like right now we're regressing back into those ways of how the world worked. I'm not on team fuck all the other people I'll take whatever I want. It's just the morals I decided to live by.

I don't watch the MTP show. I'm not sure how that would relate to this initial post. Depending on what evidence you look at and what your bias is, you could definitely see a lot of racism going on in the current Whitehouse. What's your definition of patriotism? That seems like such a red-herring to throw in this thread that it appears you need to get something off your chest about it.

LOL, sorry, maybe should have added emojis in there. Sometimes I do forget that email, text, posts are not a form of communication but rather just a way to exchange ideas. So, no, I wasn't angry. 😀 And it was a "generalization" that I was using when I wrote "nobody". For example, it's all over the news, Liberal talking points, etc about Trump's "concentration camps". Except "nobody" talked about them when Obama was President. Now, as you note, it really isn't "nobody" as some very few did. However, when you look at those bringing up the "concentration camps" subject, I'd be fairly certain not a single one of them ever brought it up under Obama. Hence, "nobody". Here's a link about generalizations and their usage.

It's 26:50 in length. I'm posting from Friendica, so you don't see it rendered correctly. Try this link?
I usually embed a player for people to play a podcast in anonymity through my post along with a link to the source.

The show is produced by the National Public Radio here and it's a Financial podcast most of the time, but this episode is off their normal material. They are really good about being human with their perspective, aka: not greed-driven.

Just curious @LanL what got you started on Diaspora and do you do other Federated sites?

Woa. #America has been shitty to people for a really long time. Stole back the 40 acres and a mule, AND paid former slave holders for the value of the formerly owned slaves! We were a Trump-style country for a long freaking time.

Part 1 of "Eviction Crisis"

#GDP #Economy #HappinessIndex Economics News Podcast Politics
So true that quality is a better way to live! However, as it's measured, I don't think cheaper inputs to a product or service change the GDP. To avoid double counting they won't measure components made to become part of a final product that a consumer buys; they just measure the price the final product sells at. But, if cheaper inputs lower the final products price they will sell more units and thus raise the total GDP. Is that what you meant?

The theorybiz article has many of the items that I was thinking of, especially the increasing #scarcity. For example, the topsoil in the #USA is being depleted and is a positive in the GDP figures. Increasing the farming quality so that we have no net loss of topsoil should lead to the best possible results in whatever measure is used.
