Just two quick “fantastic” questions

It takes only two things to keep people in chains: The ignorance of the oppressed and the treachery of their leaders..
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

You may have noticed that Donald Trump’s all-time favorite word is, “fantastic.”

  • “Mike Pompeo is doing a fantastic job.”
  • “Secret Service did a fantastic job stopping an intruder”
  • “I hope we (Putin and Trump) have a fantastic relationship.”
  • “Pakistan is a fantastic country, fantastic place of fantastic people
  • “(My) health care plan will be fantastic.”
  • Regarding the National Museum of African American History and Culture: “Honestly, it is fantastic
  • “The relationship (with India) is going to be fantastic
  • I think she (Betsy de Vos) is going to be a fantastic Education Secretary.”
  • “(I thought Angela Merkel is) really fantastic.”
  • “I saw Lady Gaga last night and she was fantastic!”
  • “Melania will be a fantastic first lady”

The list goes on and on. He seldom tells a lie without using the word, “fantastic.” I’ll bet you could find a couple hundred examples in short order.

But did you know the word “fantastic” has the original meaning: “existing only in imagination”?

It also comes from the French fantasieus, meaning “weird; insane; make-believe.”

Medieval Latin had fantasticus as a noun, meaning, “a lunatic.”

Old Italian had fantastico, meaning “one who acts ridiculously.”

My questions are, what if Donald Trump suddenly realized he is a weird lunatic who is acting ridiculously, so he apologized to America?

Wouldn’t that be fantastic?

Monetary Sovereignty

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

THE RULES

•Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.

•Any monetarily NON-sovereign government — be it city, county, state or nation — that runs an ongoing trade deficit, eventually will run out of money.

•The more federal budgets are cut and taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes..

•No nation can tax itself into prosperity, nor grow without money growth.

•Cutting federal deficits to grow the economy is like applying leeches to cure anemia.

•A growing economy requires a growing supply of money (GDP = Federal Spending + Non-federal Spending + Net Exports)

•Deficit spending grows the supply of money

•The limit to federal deficit spending is an inflation that cannot be cured with interest rate control. The limit to non-federal deficit spending is the ability to borrow.

•Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.

•Progressives think the purpose of government is to protect the poor and powerless from the rich and powerful. Conservatives think the purpose of government is to protect the rich and powerful from the poor and powerless.

•The single most important problem in economics is the Gap between the rich and the rest.

•Austerity is the government’s method for widening the Gap between the rich and the rest.

•Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.

•Everything in economics devolves to motive, and the motive is the Gap between the rich and the rest..

MONETARY SOVEREIGNTY

  1. Here is the latest Trump comment regarding his being wiretapped:

    “We said nothing. All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television.

    “I didn’t make an opinion on it. That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox.

    “And so you shouldn’t be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox.”

    Understand? Donald Trump said he didn’t say what Donald Trump said.

    He said a talented Fox lawyer said what Trump said, so don’t ask Trump about what he said, even if you read exactly what he said, because he didn’t say it.

    Actually, Trump said a lot of things he didn’t say, like for instance, he didn’t say he grabbed women by the crotch. Even though you heard him say it, he didn’t say it. A talented lawyer at FOX said it.

    And he didn’t say Mexico would pay for his beautiful wall, which is why he is asking Congress to pay $4 billion to build the wall, because he didn’t say Mexico would pay. That lawyer at FOX said it.

    Ask the FOX lawyer about what Trump said he didn’t say.

    Hey, has Trump ever lied to you?

    —————————————————————————————————————————————–

    Oh, wait a second. Now Trump stands by his statement he didn’t make:

    Spicer defends Trump’s wiretapping claims, despite having no evidence

    Press secretary Sean Spicer says President Trump still stands by his allegation that former President Barack Obama ordered wiretapping of Trump Tower, even though the intelligence community has found no proof that it happened.

    Tomorrow, he once again will deny having made the statement, even though he will continue to stand behind it. And there are fools who voted for this con artist.

  2. I don’t know about anyone else, but whenever I see Trump in or around the White House it seems like he is out of place, sort of like a square peg in a round hole.
