You want to talk politics...fine...but I am not interested in the current choice of two "pensioners".

What I am interested is:

1. Is this the decline era for the US "empire"?
2. If no...nothing. If yes, then would that decline be more like the decline of the British Empire (BE) or more like the decline and fall of Rome?
3. If like BE, then...nothing. If like the decline and fall of Rome, then we could be up for a few decades to few centuries of unpleasantness (Dark Ages II).
For the history buffs, it is thought that Justinian plaque (most likely caused by plaque bacteria- Yersinia pestis) finished the Roman empire.
Maybe something rhymes here.

What's your take?

Both the Roman and British empires were true empires, that is, they conquered other territories and subjugated them.
The US is not doing that, their power is more of an economic/social/cultural influence spiced with a strong military power. There is no conquered foreign territory that can collapse and/or break of into independence, it will just be a case of less foreign influence with US proper still intact.

i thought the lead they used to line aqueducts and containers and such had some influence too. long term lead poisoning.

Nah, I read that that was debunked, the Romans were well aware of the negative effects of led.

I have not been sleeping well, lately.

I merited this post because I entirely misread it.

As penance, I'm dumping my merit load on everyone I have - unignored - below the idiot post I merited.

I hope Joe Biden rots in hell.

Cheer up. This one's for you.

This yellow line is very important! Now we have the 101st week below it. The longest run ever was 121 weeks!

Very soon, when #Bitcoin breaks 20.000$ and above this yellow line, the fireworks can start again. VuurwerkRaket

   If a monotheistic God himself created evil and is the prime cause of evil, then he may be omniscient and omnipotent, but not infinitely benevolent.

he did not.

Quote
  If God lacks the foreknowledge needed to stop evil events from occurring, then he may be omnipotent and benevolent, but not omniscient.

he lacks not.


Quote
   If God cannot stop evil, then he may be omniscient and benevolent, but not omnipotent.

He did already. what you forget in your calculation is the free will of men, given by god.

Quote
   Evil exists, as you will observe.  

For a while.

Quote
Thus, God himself wills it—and/or God is powerless to intervene against it—and/or God does not know the future, such that he can stop evil from occurring.


Do not fret because of those who are evil
or be envious of those who do wrong;
for like the grass they will soon wither,
like green plants they will soon die away.

Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:
 
He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
your vindication like the noonday sun.
 
Be still before the Lord
and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.
 
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
do not fret—it leads only to evil.
 
For those who are evil will be destroyed,
but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.

A little while, and the wicked will be no more;
though you look for them, they will not be found.
But the meek will inherit the land
and enjoy peace and prosperity.
 
The wicked plot against the righteous
and gnash their teeth at them;
but the Lord laughs at the wicked,
for he knows their day is coming

stumbled over this little gem:


https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137.msg1195#msg1195

this was the moment when bitcoin mutated from being a nerds game to become the best money ever invented.





a few posts later this member got the right idea:

HairyMaclairy is always welcome here, can return anytime.  Cool

On a slightly different note please find my up-to-date bitcoin regulations:
  • Be vigilant, you don't know when we go to the moon
  • Be prepared, you might want to sell at least some well deserved cash
  • Be reckless, if you see a nocoiner begging at you get out of their way
  • Be gentle, remember those freinds who gave you strenght during difficult times (for me, there are some in here too)
  • Be elusive, don't let the world get you have too many coins (not a problem for me atm, even though the price ratio will be an important variable)
  • Be smart, keep living as usual
  • Be kind, donate some (don't be a rich mfkr!) I personally did many donations over the years (one referenced here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1574482.msg15840188#msg15840188)
That's enough for me. Any good addition, is welcomed here or privately. Would be interested in seeing what would be your list.
