yardstick: @ew, re: US economy - it wont, but the pandemic is irrelevant. It has more to do with demographics. We have about 5 years of inflation before things calm down. Jul 1, 2022 20:33:09 GMT -6
yardstick: @ew, re: annexing ukraine - it was never about annexing them when they proved intractable. Now it is only about razing the entire country to the ground and making it unliveable - no infrastructure. Then on to Warsaw, Bucharest, and Lithuania... Jul 1, 2022 20:41:45 GMT -6
yardstick: ... not necessarily in that order Jul 1, 2022 20:42:05 GMT -6
EnochWalked: @ys Great analysis, thank you. 5 years of inflation is plausible, but I'm curious about what demographic issues you think might lower GDP growth? Yes, sadly Russia knows it can't afford to fight against an insurgency there, so they have to depopulate it. Jul 2, 2022 8:27:21 GMT -6

EnochWalked: I'm seeing the phrase "medication abortion" a lot recently, after the recent SCOTUS ruling, & I'm wondering if this isn't a closer prophetic match to "pharmakeia" than vaccines (which are supposed to make people healthy) or drugs (to make people 'happy'). Jul 2, 2022 15:04:09 GMT -6
