Woah. I didn't originally read that as "shifting." The substitute word also fits.
Money is only a representation of production, or perceptions of production. It has not been valued for saving for more than a decade. That is too much time for any old paradigm to return.
We will never return to the days of saving liquid money in an interest-bearing account. We may see some new way of earning interest, but it will be from investments. It is now possible to have a directly-managed market account, where individuals can move liquid money to-and-from a checking account. Eventually, we'll have debit cards that are directly tied to market accounts.
It's pointless to save fiat currency when monetary value is so mercurial. If a person has saved hundreds, then they should look for the best-and-nearest time to pay for necessities and upkeep. Go buy tires, install insulation, or deal with a dental problem. If you don't have needs, then buy gold or stocks! Money that sits in a checking account for five years won't buy extra braces — money doesn't age like wine.
This can't be possible. I'm disabled, barely making money from an online job, and not getting help from the government, let alone family, friends, or my community. Yet, somehow, I've managed to maintain $1,000 in savings.
Ah, yes... I know why! BECAUSE $1,000 WON'T COVER AN EMERGENCY! It might cover the down payment for an emergency, or help with tertiary costs, but it won't even cover the cost of any serious car repair.
In this day and age, money does not hold value in the way that we think. It is almost purely a representation of production, or the illusion of production. If a person is poor, or on the bottom end of the "middle class," they should spend money immediately, making sure to purchase wisely. They should be spending on upkeep for vehicles & homes. Any remaining money needs to be put into precious metals or the market.
Savings accounts are meaningless. Money is transcending fluctuation trends, and is now truly only useful for spending. It is like a tree that entered creation at the moment before death: break it down into useful parts, or watch it wilt & rot into nothing.
I've been encountering this term. At first, I really thought that "right-wingers" were using some stupid code. But after a while, it seemed like it was being used A LOT. As in TOO MUCH for silly secret codes.
It's a new joke, and the "journalists" are failing yet again.
Others have noted the benefits of homogeneity. However, there are plenty of "gun crimes" which are never reported. The Yakuza aren't "shunned," as someone else suggests. The Yakuza are everywhere, and they own a lot of Japanese police officers. The Yakuza get away with a LOT of crimes, including sexual slavery, because of their influence.
He's the perfect example of why I despise modern Catholicism. I wish Catholics would wake up to the man-made garbage that is falsely portrayed as coming from God. There's been at least 1,000 years of fallacies that poisoned their well.
It's not easy, but it can be good to let the world know. Not in my case, but I've seen it help others. The amazing thing is the love of strangers. Strangers lack a spiritual or psychological history with the ill, or in the case of a celebrity, they have a generally positive attitude.
My family thinks that I'm a genius, so they think that I'm so smart that I'll be able to "figure it out." Ozzy's family is probably the same way, in that they think he's so "special" that he will find a way to get better.
Also, I wouldn't wish my "genius" on anyone. I'm not smart. I'm a mutant. I'm miserable. This poor guy would probably be the same, but he found a way to make money off of his curse.
They had to chase him down several blocks.... The little toy blocks. He ran so hard that he was nearly able to put one foot in front of the other!
Then FUCK OFF, you pathetic sacks of diseased cat meat!
Or, it might be an attempt to pretend that you are aren't a perverted scumbag. Get out ahead of the news of your arrest.
I checked the numbers, so you all don't end up putting revolvers in your mouths. The fool who wrote the article READ THE NUMBERS INCORRECTLY! It's not a BIG deal, but it actually is 40%. They skipped down a line after reading the 34% number who strongly approve of impeachment. It's 6% who somewhat approve, not 9 %. Also, 8% are somewhat against impeachment, and 48% are strongly against impeachment. The article gets those numbers wrong as well.
The bigger deal here is that the poll seems to be skewed to say that at least 44%+ of Evangelicals are Democrats. The poll is WAY off.
