Idk, I can’t believe the amount of huge Biden banners I’m seeing out in the countryside.. Not feeling super confident tbh..

Makes me think they must be sending them for free to whoever will put one up though.. I doubt all these people are buying them...

Btw $11,000x0.12 isn’t all that small to me.. It’s not ridiculous but definitely not insignificant..
Kinda curious to see how many bitcoin-days it destroys to move it..

AOC as the frontrunner in 2024 --- come on really? The fuck is vegas thinking.

Then again once I think about that, many people are going to buy those odds and then just lose their money cause there's no shot you can guess someone out this far. That's why the odds look amazing from a bettors perspective, when they're really not.

I'm assuming Harris will be the frontrunner if Biden wins. She'll literally be in the perfect spot to takeover the held of the admin. I don't personally think Biden will serve two terms if he is elected. Shit though, I thought the 2020 election was far out and we're literally here now.

Meh. It's just money.

And there's going to be plenty of rubbing.

Ok, that didn't come out right.

I'm assuming Harris will be the frontrunner if Biden wins.

I don't think that's a given (the Harris thing). Four years is a long time and VPs aren't really the most exciting political figures. I'm still hoping that both parties will push someone less-Beltway next time, like Pete Whatshisname, and whoever that could be on the Republican side... please tell me it's not Ted Cruz LOL.

Totally not the most exciting part of politics, for sure, though I do think that Harris isn't going to be a Biden/Pence in terms of her influence in the admin. She's probably going to be more like a Cheney in terms of how much power she'll wield in the administration. Maybe a little bit less then Cheney though, as she's not on his level of power plays, lol.

Not a guarantee, I agree, but a strong possibility if Biden wins.



2021 could be one hell of a hangover for Republicans.

Could be a rough year. Might not be though.

High likelihood (given the current aggregate polls) that the GOP keeps the Senate, loses the WH, and loses more seats in the house. Nice deadlocked Senate for sometime. Or maybe some times of less partisanship and compromise for once, though I really doubt that.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1317044556328730625

So what are the actual chances that Trump knows this is satire or he didn't actually know and is just playing along...I think maybe 50 50.


On that note though, the censorship by Facebook and Twitter of the Hunter Biden story was by far the biggest blunder of big tech this election cycle. Twitter began suspending anyone that would post a link to the NY post. One of Twitter's execs said they don't allow unauthorized content on their platform, but they've routinely circulated unauthorized content in the pass so the double standard is insane. Plenty of the Twitter leftist are okay with this, but I would not celebrate too early because this sort of tech censorship could bite you in the ass when Twitter and Facebook start to become the arbitrators of news.

Lot of talk about repealing or adjusting section 230 which frees up liability for social media companies. Even after this, I don't think regulation of private social media companies is a good idea. But again, I have a feeling people will be more upset about this when big tech censorship targets one of their own.

Like betting on cockfights or football games:  The whole concept of this thread adequately sums the value of democracy.  It is entertainment.  It keeps the proles distracted, and dissipates their energies in a way that is harmless to the system.


On Votaries of the Vote

Long was I perplexed by the etiology of democracy.  In the past, I thought that people who vote must be categorically stupid.  But I observed that many otherwise intelligent people vote—just like many otherwise intelligent people believe in fairytales from the Bible.

My conclusion is that democracy is a religion.  It is a faith in the purported “wisdom of crowds”, in flat contradiction of all evidence that a crowd acts with lower intelligence than its stupidest member.  It is a quasi-mystical belief in the revealed truth of the ballot.  Democracy’s First Commandment is that thou shalt submit to the mass and obey people who are wrong, if they are more numerous than you are.

You, the fanatics of this thread, are not merely voters:  You are votaries.

As sacrifices to the false god of democracy, you lay upon its altar your lives, your fortunes, and your posterity.

I will not speak of honour, for you have none:  There is no honour in following the whims of the crowd.

Americans, specifically, also lay upon this false god’s altar the human sacrifice of people living in faraway lands, whom any of your candidates from either official faction of your ruling party will cheerfully bomb at the drop of a hat.  It is the American Way®, an established tradition of the American world-police holy war to “make the world safe for democracy”.  For only one relatively recent and notorious example, look to Iraq:  After 13 years of tormenting that unhappy land with invasions, bombings, and economic strangulation that killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children, you overthrew its government, created a power vacuum that invited in Al Qaeda, and rationalized it by broadcasting on your TV screens the images of Iraqis voting.  Ah, the heathens had been converted at last!

Salvation through American terrorist jihad:
A convert baptized in the Holy Ink of Democracy!




Newsflash for Americans:  Trump ≈ Biden.

The much-ballyhooed “polarization” is only a ploy of media hype, to regenerate interest in an entertainment that had been faltering.  Voter turnout rates were plummeting, and that was not “apathy”:  It was wising-up!  More and more people were realizing that they are under one-party rule, and that the one party is a criminal gang hostile to the interests of the vast majority of Americans.  It is a worst-of-all-worlds system that combines the least-desirable features of a dictatorship with the corruption and inefficiency of mob rule:  Kakocracy built on ochlocracy.

The illusion was being lost—and with it, the consent of the governed upon which the power of all régimes must ultimately repose.  Vide the (other) Soviet Union:  Contrary to American pretensions, the Soviet system did not collapse because of anything that America did.  It collapsed because the majority of the people did not believe its lies.  Without at least the tacit consent of the governed, even the most brutal tyranny is long-term unstable, and is ultimately doomed unless propped up by external force (as the Soviets and the Americans did and do with their puppets).

The American system is the ne plus ultra of a slave state:  A slave state in which the slaves believe themselves to be free, per Goethe—the true “Dictatorship of the Proletariat”, which the (other) Soviets were unable to achieve.  It would also unravel, if the American people stopped believing in its illusions.

Thus stepped onstage Trump, a professional showman, to stir the pot just enough to get the enthusiasms flowing both for and against him.

Yes, Orange Bogey is manipulating the idiotic left just as much as he is manipulating the idiotic right:  Without Trump, would anybody be eager to vote for Biden?  Both sides are stupid enough to believe that Trump means what he says in his Presidential Tweets.

I think this means that his opponents must be marginally stupider:  The Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd needs for me to explain to them that Trump is a liar, and his fans are fools, and all of Trump’s grandstanding rhetoric is meaningless.  In substance, Trump is approximately equal to Biden—and vice versa.

(As a matter of form, I will admit that Trump is much more amusing—especially when he makes liberals cry.  But that is not an adequate reason to grant your moral endorsement to the scumbag, and to the system that he represents, by voting for him.)





Dear Americans:

Please SHUT UP about your reality-TV “election” show—and don’t vote, unless/until you get a candidate on the ballot in all 50 states who will call on Congress to send up bills abolishing the Federal Reserve and its conjoined twin, the Marxist progressive income tax.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/ratcliffe-hunter-biden-laptop-emails-not-russian-disinformation-campaign

This story is hysterical.

Apparently it's confirmed that these emails originated from a Hunter Biden laptop that was dropped off at a computer store for repair. The owner of the store allegedly was some conspiracy nut that made a copy of the HDD's content's and took it Rudi Giuliani's lawyers.

Hunter Biden being a mess as it already is, son of the Vice President, takes his computer to a repair shop with a hard drive full of sensitive info...potentially throwing off his father's Presidential clear path to the White House.

It's like that one Bernie sanders meme where he comes in with a chair in the WWE, except it's Hunter Biden holding his laptop.

It's her his e-mails all over again LOL.

Now to be fair I don't think this story has much traction outside of Fox News. It may energize Trump's base but I think there is a limit of how much Red Bull (or Mountain Dew, I don't judge) a person can take. They're all really fired up, there's just not that many remaining.

Somehow I feel that it won’t actually do much damage because let’s face it.. Crack smoking and prostitutes aren’t really all that offputting to most leftists now is it?
The libertarian in me doesn’t really care either other than the fact that I wouldn’t want to put such a person in/close to a position of power..
Ukraine evidence? They won’t care..

This story has been hot for days and it is just now being mentioned on Bitcointalk.. Not even a thread on it..
Nobody really cares..

Even I barely have the ambition to have read into it, much less crosspost it to btct..

Nullius is very right in many ways in his last post here..
Democracy can only work well with an informed and intelligent population who have good/selfless intentions..
The USA is lacking all 3.. The voting public is 90% propaganda packed imbeciles that care about nothing but their own immediate gratification..

Atleast the constitution is not supposed to be up for vote, but here we are talking about packing the SCOTUS with leftist activist judges to do exactly that..

Democracy can only work well with an informed and intelligent population who have good/selfless intentions..
The USA is lacking all 3.. The voting public is 90% propaganda packed imbeciles that care about nothing but their own immediate gratification..

Atleast the constitution is not supposed to be up for vote, but here we are talking about packing the SCOTUS with leftist activist judges to do exactly that..

When you look at all the facts objectively, the whole "Biden had Victor Shoken fired because he was investigating a company his son was on the board of" just doesn't add up.  There's also a ton of misinformation about Hunter Biden going around that has been repeated so many times that a lot of people seem to just assume it's true.

So, when an article in a tabloid owned by Murdoch, with the chief editor being one of Trumps golf buddies, and one of the main sources being Rudy Guilliani - it doesn't surprise me that many, including myself, aren't taking it seriously.

Crack smoking and prostitutes aren’t really all that offputting to most leftists now is it?

With leftists:  The lower, the better.



This story is hysterical.Apparently it's confirmed that these emails originated from a Hunter Biden laptop that was dropped off at a computer store for repair. The owner of the store allegedly was some conspiracy nut that made a copy of the HDD's content's and took it Rudi Giuliani's lawyers.

Opsec, LOL!  Whoops:  Too bad that Daddy Biden has a long track record of hating encryption.

—Whoops worse!  Trump is the candidate whose “Justice” Department and otherwise administration is eager to ban uncompromised strong crypto right now...

The nineties called and wants their encryption wars back

https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/international-statement-end-end-encryption-and-public-safety

Quote
In light of these threats, there is increasing consensus across governments and international institutions that action must be taken: while encryption is vital and privacy and cyber security must be protected, that should not come at the expense of wholly precluding law enforcement, and the tech industry itself, from being able to act against the most serious illegal content and activity online.

ruined my third Sunday nap

Quote
   Embed the safety of the public in system designs, thereby enabling companies to act against illegal content and activity effectively with no reduction to safety, and facilitating the investigation and prosecution of offences and safeguarding the vulnerable;
    Enable law enforcement access to content in a readable and usable format where an authorisation is lawfully issued, is necessary and proportionate, and is subject to strong safeguards and oversight; and
    Engage in consultation with governments and other stakeholders to facilitate legal access in a way that is substantive and genuinely influences design decisions.

...and Biden is the candidate whose attack on strong crypto motivated the creation of PGP almost 30 years ago:

S.266 - Comprehensive Counter-Terrorism Act of 1991
102nd Congress (1991-1992)

Sponsor:    Sen. Biden, Joseph R., Jr. [D-DE] (Introduced 01/24/1991)

[...]

Subtitle B--Electronic Communications
SEC. 2201. COOPERATION OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS PROVIDERS WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT.

  It is the sense of Congress that providers of electronic communications services and manufacturers of electronic communications service equipment shall ensure that communications systems permit the government to obtain the plain text contents of voice, data, and other communications when appropriately authorized by law.


And there was government policy, which was, of course, exactly the problem to which Zimmermann felt his encryption software was the solution. On January 24, 1991, Senator Joseph Biden, a co-sponsor of antiterrorist legislation Senate Bill 266, inserted some new language into the bill:

Quote
It is the sense of Congress that providers of electronic communications services and manufacturers of electronic communications service equipment shall ensure that communications systems permit the government to obtain the plaintext contents of voice, data, and other communications when appropriate authorized by law.

This language received a furious reaction from civil liberties groups and wound up not surviving, but Zimmermann decided to take matters into his own hands.

By June of 1991, Zimmermann had completed a working version of his software. He named it PGP for "Pretty Good Privacy," [...]

You gullible mammothrepts!  As you do every four years, you are “choosing” between two candidates who are substantively similar on every issue of real importance.  But at least it keeps you entertained, and it gives you a feeling of superiority to live in a “free” country—unlike all those Communist countries with one-party rule and meaningless show “elections”.

This story is hysterical.

Modern mass-media propaganda is a weapons technology, like bombs and missiles, based on the same psychological principles as any other advertising.  And it is an unavoidable reality of modern life.

Though there is involved some matter of degree:  I once saw some astute historian say that in Continental Europe, the propaganda must be subtle and sophisticated to fool the populace—in Britain, significantly less so—in the United States, the crudest, cheapest hogwash will suffice.  I think that you have succinctly summed up why.

(I think that democracy is “broken” by design, but I’ll meet you halfway hereby...)

Atleast the constitution is not supposed to be up for vote, but here we are talking about packing the SCOTUS with leftist activist judges to do exactly that..

Lefty court-packing started with FDR’s threat to the U.S. Supreme Court of that era that if they struck down his blatantly unconstitutional “New Deal” laws, he would have the number of justices increased, and stack the empty slots with his own men.  So much for a “balance of power”.

How do you suppose that he got away with instant tyranny, as much as he wanted?  (For pedantic correctness:  Off the top of my head, I don’t know if the Roosevelt gold ban was one of the issues directly impacted by the court-stacking threat; but I do know that the Commerce Clause abuse that is nowadays institutionalized to Federalize everything did start with Roosevelt, for exactly that reason.  And your Supreme Court should have, and otherwise would have promptly torn up everything from Socialist Insecurity, to quotas imposed on how much farmers could grow, etc., etc.)

I’m not sure why the SCOTUS from two decades earlier had permitted the Federal Reserve Act to stand—a subject for further research...  I do know that at the time, the SCOTUS had at least enough integrity that constitutional amendments were required to ram through the Income Tax, and the Prohibition of alcohol.  Nowadays, you know, your wise and benevolent Federal government would not bother with amending the Constitution for such things.

Seeing whom predominantly non-leftists put in the White House 4 years ago I don't think that's what's going in here. It's either "5 generations of my family voted [blue|red] so I can't possibly change now even if the candidate fucks a goat" or "this person promised something that I really like so who cares about the goat", or a combination thereof.

A president can't just pack the courts though.  His only real power is to stop them from being packed.  For the number of judges to change, you need enough of the 400+ members of the House that represent the entire country and are elected every 2 years to make it happen.  So, not really tyranny.
