Joe’s dreams… or Jack facts…

Folks its one thing to sell your vote hopin’ that long ago “wet dreams” of male Homo sapiens teenage development offered briefly… come with society’s endless purchases based on the NOnSENSE of… MATERIALISM.

Folks, materialism… teen boy promises… are wet dreams that have now become massive amounts… TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF DEBT… offered by vote buyin’ buffoons.   Sure, I can point my gettin’ old ornery fella (goof) fingers at dopey Joe and his cal gal from Kokomo (or thereabouts) butt folks… we the people are the fools – THAT’S A FACT, JACK!

This party of democrats and scared republicans are supported by endless marketing-based nonews media who offer small pieces of anything butt the TRUTH… that’s a fact, Jack.  And they do it for a simple requirement… they, their attorneys, others get paid billions by advertisers of much unneeded costly crap that adds to unrepayable DEBT.   It’s simply history repeatin’ itself… a turd road enroute to history’s destination… self-destruction!

Folks, if you, me, each of us, have ever faced the reality of a needed weight reduction program… it’s now…it’s today!   It ain’t gonna better until we the people do without… we volunteer… we lose weight… we have and we raise our kids… we get educated… we WORK HARD, DAILY, and, yeah, we stop killing fetuses.   Why?   Because they’re our future…THAT’S A FACT, JACK.

Here are Jack’s (JFK’s) brief words… “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country…”

Jack facts… or Joe’s dreams… ?   We’ll see… 11/8/2022!

… “uncertainty.” A few brief words about…

Let’s define the base word (UNCERTAIN) we seek to share a few brief words about…” not able to be relied on; not known or definite.”

Folks, I may well be alone in even mentioning this situation.   Or, at a minimum, I’m sure not locating various American offerings of known/definite wisdom and leadership… governments, business, military or whatever… flowing in between endless constant advertisements for stuff that costs a lot… and “news” and ‘info” and “analysis”.   Are you?  The quotes (“) are offered as my way of displaying… uncertainty.  What’s really goin’ on?  What ever happened to that once upon a time when, perhaps, most of us lived based on FACTs… ?

I ask a question… have FACTs simply disappeared in America?   miA… missin’ in America? 

That’s it folks…brief words.  Facts are needed.   History replaces with NOnSENSE.

Capitalism today… Materialism v. Freedom’s fundamental need… RESPONSIBILITY

Folks that’s it – in 8 wordsabove this gettin’ old ornery fella “goof” has simply repeated history…updated to this, our, moment in time as we accelerate along history’s frequently chosen path by us Homo sapiens to history's favorite destination… self-destruction.

History repeats...

The wisdom of several v. the materialism of many… history repeats

Folks even this goof… gettin’ old ornery fella… finishin’ his 8th decade as an American… conceived in the womb of a good woman… born… raised…and even occasionally, as an adult, behaved as a grateful American… I must simply say/write… we had better get off materialism's dead end street... aka Self-Destruction… or more often… DC – Debt Capital, USA.   We either quickly get back to the basics (i.e. fundamentals) of history’s several survivors or we repeat/accelerate… history and materialism's well-traveled road to Self-Destruction… aka DC!!

In fewer than 100 words above … if you’ve read the above… you’ve been taught history’s #1 lesson!

Did you learn the lesson?

Mom’s who do one heck of a good job… and us guys who don’t

I’ve been writing/sharing/reading mostly history that involves us Americans.  I’ve also been observing ever since JFK was killed and LBJ took over that government promises self-aggrandizing concepts that are mostly voter buying crap.   Add lots of  DEBT…  that ends up hurting the voters who sell their votes to buffoons who promise the world but simply aren’t responsible.   They don’t get the job done! They do pay themselves piles of worth less USA dollars.   That’s America today!

So, what I did was google the following words

history's lessons about countries that print and distribute money

Google offers some summary titles/links with a few borrowed words that connect to the above… here are several with the link:

·         What happens when a country just prints more money?

 

o   Unless there is an increase in economic activity commensurate with the amount of money that is created, printing money to pay off the debt would make inflation worse. This would be, as the saying goes, "too much money chasing too few goods."

o   https://www.aarp.org/politics-society/government-elections/national-debt-guide/faqs/why-cant-government-print-more-money.html

 

·         How does printing money affect the economy?

 

o   Economics is based on the idea of supply and demand. If we printed more money, there would be an artificial overabundance of demand – money – but the supply of goods would not increase at the same rate. What results is dangerous inflation. Prices would increase to a level where the newfound money would be worthless.

o   https://www.liberty.edu/champion/2021/11/opinion-printing-more-currency-will-not-fix-inflation/

 

·         Why can’t we just print a bunch of money to make everyone rich?

 

o   It sure sounds like a nice idea. Print a bunch of money and everyone gets rich. We could buy anything we wanted. Ah, if only it were that easy. It turns out printing more money would have a much different outcome than we might like to imagine.

o   https://askdruniverse.wsu.edu/2017/07/14/print_money/

Folks, I could go on… quickly... no advertisements… there’s no one in an American materialism society that would pay me a penny – $0.01 – to advertise their overpriced mostly unneeded crap that lives off NOnSENSE... no fundamental need... value!   That’s a fact Jack!

Why is my Mom my 1st title word above ?  She taught me to do without... volunteer... help others... ... save/invest/repay debt... and more.  That’s why!

... yesterday... today... and tomorrow...

 ... this book pretty well tells it all... 

 

... and if it's okay for me to say/write... it ain't all a good factual history for us Americans...

My purpose at thefundamentals is pretty basic... we can survive a while... and/or repeat history...

Survival's pretty basic... doin' what's needed... not doin' what's not needed... last a while... or, history repeats...
