Yes everyday I am reminded of our demise Valerie
I just finished watching The Mist on Netflix, I liked it - nice twists too, a bit slow paced, but the ending leaves on a huge cliffhanger + there re unanswered questions, the way it ends initially was for sure there would be a season 2, there has to be, there is no real ending - unfortunately the network cancelled it.
As to Revelations, there needs to be many events first, some have passed, but I would say we are seeing precursors now, before the real events - I don't think the fall of the economy is due yet, on one hand Mitch McConnell does not want a bipartisan deal on the debt ceiling, he wants the Democrats to manage their own debt ceiling without the support from the GOP, yeah he is out of his mind like such dirty gamble with Americans will help them secure the midterms, NOT, so I guess the Democrats have options to deal with this and postpone things until after midterms, BUT with risks. Usually at the last minute a deal is reached, but this time the GOP is firm about not supporting it, let's see what kind of magic Pelosi has up her sleeves - You see, this is the problem with a split senate, in this case Mitch McConnell is actually helping Democrats secure a good victory on the midterms - Right now Pelosi need at least 10 Republicans to support the bill to raise the debt ceiling - it's hard to imagine America would default on its debt for the very first time in history - and unfortunately the Republicans will be to blame this time, and it's funny when Republicans were in power, they relied on Democratic support for the debt ceiling - I find this disgusting beyond words, when the financial health of hundreds of millions of Americans are at stake, you would think you would put your differences aside and cooperate - it's no time for political rivalry here, a default would cause permanent damage.
In regards to the politicians in Washington, you can never tell what they are going to do
or not going to do. I don't put much credit in anything they say.
And I thought Biden was out of his damn mind - Mitch McConnell just proved me wrong - Pelosi would have to pull some sorcery or some magic trick to get the support from Republicans, she tried the hand job approach, but it didn't work, what else, he was firm (no pun intended) he said he would NOT support the bipartisan bill to raise the debt ceiling, unless he too is another lying lunatic
Banks, well, I don't know why anyone would utilize banks today if they don't have to and
I think more and more people are not using them and / or using them with a simple balance
to pay their monthly bills.
Where else are you going to put your money - Ok in the old days people used banks because they got interest on their money, like 10-15% interest
Today, you get an insulting 0.01% interest on a regular savings, and 0.25-0.30% on term deposits, insulting. But still if you have the money, where are you going to keep it ? In shoe boxes in your closet ? Probably not the safest, so people leave their money in the bank where it is safe, and insured. If a default happens, you can see the US dollar crash, I wonder if they will freeze all bank accounts and use people's money to pay the debt - the governments could use that extraordinary power - Now I wonder what that numbed brain Jerome Powell thinks about that ? So far treasure secretary Yellen has sent letters warning congress, but it's funny so far we did not hear about Powell - now I can understand why Trump hated his guts, every time he utters words he causes panic and fear.
There was a day when people wrote checks and mailed their bills or drove to where they
needed to submit a check. That is almost rare today. In the last three years, I have wrote
less than 15 checks. People use bill pay today, debit card, or cc.
Exactly, electronic, you can pay all your bills online now or through CC. I saw in the news not long ago, casinos in Canada will phase out money to fight against money laundering - It will start in Quebec, according to article, but likely other casinos will follow - you won't be able to leave with your chips, all deposits and withdrawals will be made on the spot through your player's card. NICE, good way to ruin more lives, you wanna play slots, no problem insert your casino member card + bank debit card in the slot and play......... But no this is not the Mark of the bast - fortunately not everyone relies on casinos
If ALL stores and essential services phased out money, THEN one should worry
But you would need to carry a mark of some entity (person or company) on you at all times. So which AntiChrist will save humanity from the wrath of Mitch McConnell ?
Bitcoin and the like is nothing more than an opener for what is yet to become. Checks, cash,
all that is out the window and bitcoin will be too.
As I stated about progression.
It's like water draining out of a bathtub.
Exactly, opener, that's what I call precursors. My blood boils every time I heard the word Bitcoin mentioned. Cryptocurrency is what keeps criminal activity alive today both offline and online, without it, it would mean the demise of the dark web. Not only that but those selfish pricks of miners out there, they have destroyed the PC market, they have exhausted all stock of graphics cards, CPUs, memory, etc, making it impossible for a person to build a decent PC, and if you are LUCKY to find a graphics card, be ready to pay 5x-10x its value !!! I was so lucky to have upgraded my system before that bitcoin mining craze. In 2018, I purchased a good graphics card, cost me around $600, TODAY if I wanted that same card it would cost me $1800-$2300 !!!! That's what those cocksucking bitcoin miners have caused.
I also blame tech companies like NVIDIA in allowing this and not giving a shite about its regular customers who have supporting them for years.
So yeah, you can say that again, we are heading right down the shit hole, slowly but surely
I don't need movies to convince me I am convinced
Though the movies part keeps one a little entertained and ready at the same time, though I am disappointed in The Mist I expected a better ending and closure, considering it was a Stephen King production and I saw his other series they had proper closure, like The Stand......I guess maybe they expected for sure a second season would happen, only now we are left on a huge cliffhanger.
