If you're an American, here is something for you to ponder and act upon if you feel strongly against allowing one unelected person, your Treasury Secretary, to make unilateral decisions without any checks...
"The so-called "special measures" provision (proposed by @jahimes) would essentially give the Treasury Secretary unchecked and unilateral power to ban exchanges and other financial institutions from engaging in cryptocurrency transactions." See Jerry Brito's thread:
Krugman is one of the most intellectually dishonest and obfuscating weasels on the planet.
1. The coronavirus is no big deal [physically, to the vast majority of the population].
2. The vaccination is ineffective [at stopping the spread, effective at reducing hospitalization and deaths].
3. It's all about freedom (resistance to MANDATES, not vaccines, is part of it, not all).
"... not only does Oliver highlight the connective tissue and motives of the elite, but he also references their words to point out the bigger leftist agenda at work."
They are already saying it. And the radicals are saying the same thing to the old decrepit establishment.
None of it will make any difference. This is their own civil war. They have avoided it for decades and they cannot stop it
The old unity and coherence is gone and they have to face reality. It is just beginning
NH Senator Maggie Hassan delivered a remarkably foolish and self-destructive speech last week, where she angrily demanded the abolition of the filibuster.
GOP Gov Sununu's decision not to run for the Senate does not mean that Hassan will win reelection easily.
Her approval ratings are in the low 40s. She is a strident, angry radical leftist ideologue with an abrasive personality. That type of personality in either party does not go over well in NH.
The one thing they are not saying is that rent control is nothing less than the expropriation of property owners.
People who invest in property to afford a retirement income have their retirement stolen by government without compensation. Unconstitutional as it gets.
What's next? A cap on professional fees? Service fees? Hairdresser control?
By losing Virginia, McCauliffe/The Clintons have taken a huge hit.
But so has Biden and his handlers.
The Dems are ruthless with their external enemies, as we have seen. However they're even MORE ruthless with their internal ones.
As I think we are going to see.
What I see is the Democratic Crime Syndicate imploding from within.
Magnificent, isn't it?
EARTHQUAKE IN VIRGINIA
GOVERNOR GLENN YOUNGKIN
Take a bow, sir. Magnificent victory.

LGB video meme; worth keeping:
This strikes me as being an accurate analysis of the situation here in New Zealand. I am vaccinated, but I loathe the mandate.
"Recently the mad queen of smiley-faced fascism was asked if her national vaccination mandate was intended to create two classes of citizens in New Zealand, vaccinated and unvaccinated. The Prime Minister did not flinch before gleefully exclaiming that is entirely her objective, “yup, that’s exactly what it is, yep.”"
Great little article by Thomas Sowell over at Townhall regarding the upcoming VA election..
High Stakes in Virginia
The opinion piece covers CRT and how this election as far more reaching than the standard political jockeying that normally goes on..
