Resignations and Arrests

25 Jun

From those many Americans seeking to provide the facts, I offer up a website produced by many, who collectively have put together their best estimate of several interesting statistics. None of these statistics would have been measurable without the current administration.

The data is provided such that you can query into any level you might have interest in. One might consider the personal decision making that goes into resigning from a job. I suggest that it is very rare.

Highlights of the website are on such topics as:

Shadow Banking

25 Jun

As I learn more about the subject of “shadow banking”, I recall how it was that I even made myself aware of “shadow banking:.

Recently it seems, banks had gone to the extreme of not even checking borrowers’ income in the application form… More importantly there was no income verification.

ShadowBanks

 

To myself, just a regular guy, I thought that to be an example of “incompetence”. But seeing it throughout the media (and elsewhere) on a seemingly daily basis it was nothing new.

But now I understand… Quicken Loans in now the largest lender for homes in the US. Quicken Loans is in the “shadow banking” category. They are not a bank. They do not take deposits to secure their loans.

I know this is wildly impossible, but are the banks, now incapable of rationalizing their home loan activity, offloading the residential home loans to “shadow banks” to cover their trail and to create a whole new area of financial corruption?

The Rice Experiment, Our World Reality

For those that have heard of the Rice Experiment, you might want to check out a fine YouTube video on just that subject. You might think, How Can That Be? :

The world we see may not be entirely what we think. For a more indepth look into Our World, including an embedded video about the Quantum Experiment with Slits, check out Ed’s work from the Outer Light :

Mouse Experiment and GMI

6 Jun

There’s been a lot of talk in various circles about a Guaranteed Minimum Income. Most recently Bernie Sanders was talking about giving everybody that wanted one, a government job. And in Stockton California the mayor is wanting to provide 300,000 Stockton residents $500 every month with no strings attached.

For those unable to contemplate an environment where people are rewarded for making no contribution to society, look no further than into the Mice Utopia Experiment :

Human Evolution and Politics

6 Jun

It might seem that your political perspective was simply how you were raised. In reality, that may be true. But, like in intelligence, there may be more involved.

r/K selection theory –r/K selection theory relates to the selection of combinations of traits in an organism that trade off between quantity and quality of offspring.

For example, rabbits living in a world of totally abundent grass will reproduce, well, like rabbits. There is plenty of available food to support offspring, with little worry about continuation of the species. Little time is spent in the realm of parenting while much time is spent in procreating.

And then there are wolves living in a colder climate with limited resources. For them, time spent protecting their offspring from prey and training them to find the necessary resources for survival is paramount.

From a YouTube perspective try :

Or a discussion on the subject with Stephan Moleneaux and Bill Whittle :
