THESE BITCOIN BLOCK TIMES ARE FREAKING KILLING ME.

AUUUUGGGGGHHHH !!!

How is anyone supposed to test the Lightning Network like this ?!???
Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

And the EU is now a 'foe' of the United States.  Astounding.  I am sure most of my life I was taught the Americans were allies of Western Europe.  Should I consider going for some weapons training? I mean, a hell of a lot of Americans seem to be visiting places near where I live. There's even a US military base not so far away.  

For the record, Trump clarified that when he said 'foe' he meant 'competitor'. Which is a completely different connotation.

Also to give context, Trump was expressing frustration that the U.S. continues to subsidize Germany and other NATO countries with footing nearly the entire bill for their defense, whilst these same countries continue to trade and buy LNP directly from Russia and not from the U.S.

Wouldn't you too be frustrated with this unfair trade arrangement?

True as far as it goes, to be fair however, Europe has remained compliant to the petrodollar arrangement all these years, so it's not like we aren't getting value for our investment.  We get to export our inflation.

The problem with the healthcare industry is that it just not sustainable to try and operate it at a profit or even at break even. It is rather difficult to make a profit or break even when your main customers are among the chronically ill and/or dying. Unfortunately, it can really only operate at a loss, in the long run. It must be a subsidized enterprise, either voluntarily through charity and/or mandated by some sort of taxes.

Sorry for commentating again so often but the Europe is socialism theme has been said for decades and EU keeps on going anyhow.    Its not really tending towards extremes quite that much, the politics certainly appears that way but overall the countrys are mixed in their purpose and aims.   Germany is one of the worlds greatest exporters for example, any interference with control of that industry operation would not likely be tolerated and lead them into an obvious loss.   So long as they retain the ideas of democracy I would not fear Europe will become this negative or extreme any time soon, I dont see this as a trend increasing is my point. 

The biggest warning of a socialist move imo would be in the interaction between banking debt, government debt and the ECB.   Done correctly the debt is bad and some defaults should occur, this reorder is necessary.   If that common order is disrupted, it favours unrest and possibly this idea of seizing assets to favour the common good.  That path leads to ruin as Venezuela has shown most recently.   If all these governments' budgets were in surplus I would not think this possible at all


https://i.imgur.com/xwjwc4c.png
Quite an obvious barrier upwards, 6800 as mentioned a few times.    Indicators are neutral seems like and 50 day moving average flat.   This is just the April low, on balance nothing especially bullish required to challenge this area rather then retract as if it were a solid ceiling.   I would guess we surpass it and in doing so there is a bit of a rush upwards, 7400 to 7700 being the most obvious target which is a previous channel trend and a previous ceiling.   I dont think it would go past that without selling, consolidation.

This recent higher daily low area was quite good reason to be positive now I think

I'd agree in plain numbers but for a nation, its people are its most valuable asset and the best source of growth possible.   People are exponential in their capacity for productive gain, to not favour the good health of your nation as much as possible could be considered the worst form of malinvestment.

Saying that, only basic health care in line with advances over decades is that feasible.  Cutting edge, high cost health care should probably always be private.

Socialism is forced redistribution of resources. The precise method this is accomplished by does not change the main theme.

In my country we have about 80% taxation. Convince me that this is not socialism.

Back when the NHS was formed health was nice and simple. Everyone died off at the right time and drugs was real drugs.

These days I don't see how any service can hope to keep up with the developments or expense. You could easily pour a million dollars of experimental shite into some muggins who might get a few extra weeks out of it. That could transform hundreds of other lives.

And once you get beyond 80 you should only be given maintenance or the option of a quick offing. It's not as if you're going to regrow your tight little body again.

No way do I think an American style health system is a good thing but at some point people have to acknowledge that not everything is affordable for everyone.

If it's wrong to choose the smiling girl over scowlface, then I don't want to be right.

Sometimes people choose a shitty ass meme to get their point across.

scowlface is clearly making that face cuz her supposed boyfriend is looking at the smiling girl. Under other circumstances scowlface would surely not be scowlface ... The guy isn't looking at the smiling girl cuz she's smiling (he can't see that by the way), neither is he ignoring scowlface cuz she is scowling.

Having said that, I do agree that the meme is, at some extent, not well-suited. Mainly cuz the accurate explanation that's complex is never/hardly at the reach of most of us.

Centralized economies are not efficient? LOL. What do you think civilization is based on?  Huh Do you really think the tribal economy of the paleolithic was somehow more efficient? Why on Earth do you think "the market" ends up creating oligarchies? Large corporations, due to economies of scale, always will have an advantage over mom and pop operations. The only hope for the mom and pop operations is to somehow have an advantage either through specialization, innovation and/or access to resources. Then the mom and pop organization will have a chance to actually become one of the large corporations.

Someone linked a bunch of pictures of scowlface recently. It's all she does. Honestly the problem is that the guy is with her in the first place.

And, if you know someone who is actually a good person, and it actually isn't their fault that they are too poor to afford health care, help them out. It's pretty simple really.

So much effort is put into over complicating the matter. Create this massive system of over regulation and blame the sky high price on the fact that money isn't being forcefully taken away from healthy people to subsidize the sick. All in the name of enriching the megalithic corporations that harry purports to be against. Roll Eyes

Civilization is a lot of people living together without murdering the fuck out of one another. It's anything that is not tribal warfare.

And it's not a debate. We have a century of data and the numbers are in. Capitalism produces more wealth than socialism and has less economic inequality and more personal freedom. It is not a matter of opinion.

Yep.

In the past it used to be called "Medical Care" and it's purpose was intended for life threatening emergencies only. People were expected to take the majority responsibility for their own ongoing daily/yearly health.

Now in only a few decades it's morphed into "Healthcare" and has been sold to the ignorant public as something absolutely needed for ongoing quality of life maintenance or improvement (i.e., constant checkups, procedures, and drugs. Lots and lots of expensive drugs.). Personal responsibility has been all but erased.

No, that's due to how the brain develops in response to a given environment. The easier and safer life is (thanks to wealth produced by capitalism), the more people think like children (instant gratification and narcissism).

It always ends in a lot of people dying. The romans did it, the soviets did it, the west is doing it today. It can't be stopped on a national level, only on an individual one.
