    Obviously we're not going back to pre internet days so tech's here to stay and its byproduct of zero inflation. US inflation numbers tomorrow are forecast at 1.5% max and that's with americans travelling and spending their christmas stimulus.


    When it all goes quiet again buy some bitcoin with beer money. I basically started playing with $1000 when crypto was declared dead in 2015.

    Snowing in Madrid.

    From the look of it, it may even be snowing in Thailand in probably another 10 years. Some parts of Northern Thailand already has cold winter.

    Then why isn't it snowing in the central belt of Europe? Madrid has more snow than Hungary, Bulgaria, France...

    The series dams might actually protect the mekong. Looking at the more and more rains, you need more dams to hold back a tsnami. There's a saying, man plans but heaven decides. :D

    Sgbuyer, how do you see the situation of Corona (official info) on cases, deaths and vaccinations in Asia?

    Despite the many vaccinations, it seems like Europe is doing terribly. Some countries are contemplating new lockdowns of major cities.

    It seems like Cuba is having increasing infections in 2021, as opposed to Peru, for example, where it seems like it is decreasing.

    The vaccinations here in America dont even keep you from getting or giving it. They only are supposed to cut down the severity of the symptoms. Not sure about what tou guys have.
    It wont have an affect on cases or the sickly dying would be my guess. Theres really no point in taking it at all.
    I'm not taking any vacc thats for sure.

    I've talked about this virus since Jan 22 on this forum. The reason why I brought it up so early is because one of my extended family ordered 3 boxes of 3M masks in early Jan. As you know, there are plenty of PRCs here and they have been circulating on their social media to prepare for this pandemic even in early Jan. This is not a secret. A lot of people knew about it. It is public information, but is censored on Western media. Even today, information on the virus is censored by fake news.

    "Deutsche Bank won't do any more business with Trump"

    "Deutsche Bank will no longer do business with President Donald Trump, a move that will cut off his business from a major source of loans that once helped fund his golf courses and hotels.

    Germany's biggest bank has decided to refrain from future business with the president and his company, a person familiar with the bank's thinking told CNN Business. The news, first reported by the New York Times, follows last week's deadly riot at the US Capitol.
    A spokesperson for Deutsche Bank (DB) declined to comment to CNN Business, citing a prohibition on discussing potential client relationships.
    The move is the latest example of corporate backlash against the president after his supporters vandalized the Capitol in a brazen assault that left five people dead.

    On Monday, Signature Bank said it had started closing Trump's personal accounts and called for the president to resign. The US bank also said it "will not do business in the future with any members of Congress who voted to disregard the Electoral College."

    [...]"

    So, Deutsche Bank is siding with the leftists? Aren't banks supposed to be neutral?

    This is how they can cut your food/water/...universal basic income(?sounds familiar?) on political grounds.

    It's nothing new. Confiscation of your money, that's why you buy gold and silver. Even cryptos, can be confiscated. The banks just need to block you from changing it to cash.

    So after they have authoritarian power in their own countries, will there be peace? No, power is never enough, just as money is never enough. When they have full power domestically, they will yearn for regional and then global power.

    That's why I said that when the dictators finish conquering their own people, they will want to conquer each other because when all domestic resistance is eliminated, the only threat left is from overseas. Stalin, Hilter, we're all too familiar. Same kind of people, same kind of ideology, depotism, just using different terms, but end up each other's greatest nemesis. History repeating itself again.

    they have along running history of siding with socialists, only have to look at Deutsche Banks history with the German national socialist party, aka Nazi party. so comes as no surprise they would follow the Jewish hating left in 2021

    The pandemic has affected the weather causing non stop rains from June to Sept which is usually much drier. This year will be worst. When man tries to play god, there will be disasters. More to come as the water probably shifted the crust.

    Where is this happening and how do you think the pandemic can affect weather?

    What I see it the positive only: less cars, less air pollution. :D The air is very fresh outside.

    Less cars, less carbon emission to block out the sun causes the temperature spikes that causes crazy non stop rains in East Asia throughout summer and autumn.

    The pandemic gives us a chance to look at what happens when we go carbonless, basically more rain throughout the year and much cooler Dec and Jan, superb weather. :D

    (CNN)President-elect Joe Biden is expected to unveil a major Covid-19 relief package on Thursday and his advisers have recently told allies in Congress to expect a price tag in the ballpark of $2 trillion, according to two people briefed on the deliberations.

    The Biden team is taking a "shoot for the moon" approach with the package, one lawmaker in close contact with them told CNN, though they added that the price tag could still change. The proposal will include sizable direct payments to American families, significant state and local funding -- including for coronavirus vaccine distribution and other emergency spending measures -- to help those struggling during the pandemic.

    A Bank Who's share price went down 30% in 2020.

    Unbelievable with the PM price. All I can see/say is that value from GLD and SLV flowing into the Share market.
