Absolutely. It's all about enticing engagement with your audience. How about asking some polarizing questions? 😉

Irony "What may look like a boring story about securing an area during a naturally contentious event is of course irresistible because of the irony of the Democrats, who have made sport of Donald Trump’s focus on building a wall on America’s southern border, being protected by a wall surrounding their convention."

+Thomas Jackson it used to come from natural resources, like gold and silver. I actually still have dollars that are legally worth some silver.

Today's money is based on the faith of good credit. In short, it's based on the estimated ability to pay back something in resources. The more the coalition involved in the world market believes you, the more your currency is worth. The U.S. stability is based on the reported estimate of our lands natural capacity and internal industrial capacity to produce and provide collateral (exchange) for cash.

The problem is, that because of this credit system and bad politics, the U.S. has ended up outsourcing its major corporations and most raw materials are imported rather than mined. This disbalance places the U.S. in a position of having very little of our own to pay back if a country wants to cash in our dollars. We would have to resell everything we bought which causes the prices of those things to drop. In short we end up without enough resources to pay up all we owe back.

The government uses this credit system to pay for social programs. The truth is, the money wasn't there to begin with. We just take out a lown from other countries to pay for our internal agencies and programs. The taxes collected does little to nothing in supporting all our expenditures. Which puts us in the worste position globaly to bargain with, and without any infrastructure built to begin supplying in the case we have to suddenly pay everything back or any other country suddenly closes their market to us.

The U.S. doesn't just make up money, nor are our resources the same, we are importing more resources than producing in house. We are borrowing money more than ever on the good faith we can pay it back, which we can't. We are literally in the void of total collapse and only kept afloat by good faith. Politicians have put all their chips in insuring themselves wealth. But sold our country, the people, to everyone else.

If our country has a debt, the people have no money. None. The debt comes first. The more the government spends, the larger that debt gets. The less the people actually have. Our money is only worth what our nation's wallet is. Our wallet is several trillions in debt. That's what your cash is worth right now. A negative figure.

The reality is without cold hard resources, money is worthless. It is a credit that you will have to pay in one way or another. Resources are limited and money is a reflection of those resources. When the resources don't exist you make up ideas and claims to continue borrowing even though you know you can not pay it back. For the elites, they invest in precious metals. Like gold, silver, etc. They become associated with corporations that can provide raw resources. They lock their security in. For the rest of us, we work for a fake credit system that is riding on the edge and have no valuables to live off when a crash comes.

That's partially why economies have ups and downs. Because the faith or the limited controlled resources fluctuate causing the lower tier to suffer horribly while the top bitches about how they lost so much but yet continue to travel the world on private jets using costly jet fuel refined from resources that were imported. They cover their corners. We are left to suffer the outcome.

Stop government spending. End it. Or find a new source of taxes that does not punish people for making money. In fact, the flat consumer tax would fix all the tax issues. The rich will always consume more, the poor less. That automatically fixes the inequality problem. Make products that are sold as raw, tax free, like rice and potatoes, which removes the burden from farmers to pay excessive taxes and selling their products at cheaper more demanded prices which creates more revenue for farmerd. Which refocuses our diets and lifestyles to healthier habits. You reward agriculture, healthy lifestyles, and balance the inequality of the poor and middle class being burdened by unfair taxes. You also need to remove the minimum wage which harms business and under values workers. Have balance tariffs that encourage business in the country and avoids exports from becoming the primary source of supplies. Which increases job opportunities and higher wage jobs for those who currently are working in low wage jobs to climb up to.

The problem today isn't we need higher minimum wage jobs, is that the country has been left with a void of higher wage jobs for people to jump into. Most people working in a fast food restaurant shouldn't be complaining about more pay but better jobs. The fast food chain is not or should not be the first place you should seek as a permanent career choice. Or be left with as your only career choice. A partial responsible factor is the minimum wage. Workers can not be provided with what they are worth so they end up suffering the results of being given bare minimum enforced wages. The highest minimum wage country is denmark and they don't have any forced government minimum wage. They simply work with their work force and their market to provide the best value the job title can offer. They also have the strongest and free market in europe. Their employement satisfaction is also the highest. All because of a true free market. Not like our system which is a mixed market. Using both aspects of a planned market and a free one. The planned aspect is at fault for all the corruption in politicis, wage inequality and monopolies that harm and effectively end up exporting more jobs than creating in house.

A lot is wrong with the idea that money is made up out of thin air by governments and that resources are limitless or infinitely recycled or reused.

"The long-standing puzzle to be solved is why we and everything we see is matter-made. More to the point, why does anything — matter or antimatter — exist at all? The reigning laws of particle physics, known as the Standard Model, treat matter and antimatter nearly equivalently, respecting (with one known exception) so-called charge-parity, or “CP,” symmetry: For every particle decay that produces, say, a negatively charged electron, the mirror-image decay yielding a positively charged antielectron occurs at the same rate. But this cannot be the whole story. If equal amounts of matter and antimatter were produced during the Big Bang, equal amounts should have existed shortly thereafter. And since matter and antimatter annihilate upon contact, such a situation would have led to the wholesale destruction of both, resulting in an empty cosmos."

"A year after successfully crowdfunding $25 million to build its 84 mpg closed-cabin tricycle, Elio Motors has done serious legwork to ensure that most folks can drive theirs off the lot without needing additional training. After New Jersey and Rhode Island updated its laws this summer, the company has secured exemptions or recategorizations in 41 states from requiring a motorcycle license to use their ultra-efficient vehicles."

While electric vehicles have a production history extending back to 1884, there have been many failed companies along the way. Some people think Tesla is going to be one of them. The factors which influence electric car success suggest, however, that Tesla picked the right time to enter the market. Looking back across the decades since the

Magic Leap has not been forthcoming with details about how their technology works. From what little we know, it is a truly novel system with capabilities far beyond the off the shelf components consumers are accustomed to. Putting together patents and presentations we can get a pretty good picture of how the technology works and makes some educated guess on the specifications, such as field of view and resolution, we can expect to s...

The State of Michigan approved a $17 million loan to build a 311-acre facility for autonomous vehicle testing on Wednesday. The loan will be used to purchase unused land at Willow Run, which used to be owned by General Motors and was a Ford bomber plant in WWII.

"Microsoft is trying to take Node.js beyond its current ties to Google's V8 JavaScript engine. The company wants "to make Node be agnostic of the VM it supports based on a standard Node interface," said Arunesh Chandra, Microsoft senior program manager for ChakraCore, at the Node Summit conference in San Francisco this week. "Node is so sensitive to fluctuations in V8 that it breaks the ecosystem quite often," he noted."
The company also has its ChakraCore engine working on Linux and MacOS

A simple addendum or thought - Recently I have noticed, there is an accelerating rate of change in science and technology, that seems to be just outside of peoples range of perception. Perhaps they are ignoring it because they do not understand it, or maybe they are paying to much attention to Snooki and the like to even notice.
