What makes them think it's coming from their homes? It's an outside source hitting YOU not your house etc. Your hearing this false hum internally and it can be just you or groups of people around you, it has nothing to do with the houses or surrounding area.

 

It's your own personal noise. It's being given to you!

Personally I am more concerned with future deflation ATM. In deflation everyone loses.

 

How does deflation work and cause a problem?  It happens so rarely I can't remember a time when it was an issue. I was thinking about inflation yesterday; the govt and Bank of England has a target figure of about 2% inflation but why is that a good thing? Why not aim for 0% ?   Whenever there's inflation in prices we're always under pressure to keep up with our wages so there's a structural need for workers to conflict with their employers.  Surely there's some advantages in things becoming cheaper, especially the basic necessities.

The most famous one is the great depression.

 

Less money, and less economic growth so less jobs, prices assets down, velocity money will be low, salaries lower. Only people that really benefit are those with huge cash positions who can take advantage.

 

Edit. We essentially live in a debt based economy. You want to start a business you need debt. Less loans means less businesses, less economic growth, less jobs etc

But maybe deflation is a symptom of the depression rather than the cause, which is all that debt and hyped up profiteering which the big corporations do during the growth stage. Deflation would be the supply-and-demand equation trying to get itself back into balance. 

 

Like, house prices are extremely high at the moment which is effectively a wealth transfer from the young first time buyers to the older generation. Maybe a bit of deflation here wouldn't be such a bad thing. A house is a house after all, a home to live in, its value hasn't changed while its price has rocketed.

looks Habesha.....it means Ethiopian, Somali or Eritrean
I ask myself...these people are totally small and frail why they are so brutal? 🤨

 

IQ differences in Sub-Saharan Africa + lack of impulse control. I know someone will think that sounds bigoted, but it's other Africans that complain the most about them, a quick keyword search on Twitter reveals this. I was redpilled on this when I was a teenager though, because gangs of like 30 of them used to roam my old town robbing eveyrone in broad daylight.

Habeshian people dont identify themselves as black..they also look different
I know from them that they do not respect white people and also no other african nations

if someone thinks they will integrate in the western world they are very wrong.....they just live in their own culture with their own people

 

London has a huge Habeshian community...but they are scattered over whole Europe meanwhile

You are right. The problem is if you view the natural flow dynamic in supply and demand as a rubber band, naturally the economy has wanted to receed and rid itself of bad investment since 2008. Instead of letting it take its natural course the central bankster went the other way, printed insane amount of money and put interest rates close to zero and everything is over valued.

 

So the rubber band is beyond full stretch and they have nearly lost control. So if does twang it's gonna go the other way in a big way.

 

What should have been a bad natural recession in 2008 could now potentially be a great depression in the future unless something changes. Ie we need a lot more genuine growth and productivity.

Have you ever walked too close to a female on a narrow pavement, or inadvertently obstructed her path?

 

How about ‘cat-calling?’ (Here kitty kitty…) Have you driven past a lady pedestrian too slowly?

 

ENOUGH!

 

That is the name of the Home Office campaign, aimed primarily at men, to stop women feeling threatened by their ‘toxic masculinity’ and unwarranted attention.

 

All men are dangerous apparently!

 

The new Street Harassment Bill carries penalties of two years imprisonment for the aforementioned ‘crimes.’

 

Campaigners have called for wolf-whistling and staring intently to be criminalised too.

 

Cruella Braverman said, “criminals who commit these acts face the consequences they deserve.”

 

The Labour Party agrees, but thinks “the government must now go further and faster.”

 

They have basically outlawed courting.... Ah, I feel safer already.

 

As you know, women live in fear of men every single day, simply by virtue of the fact that they are bigger, stronger, hairier…. although, nowadays, they seem to wear more make-up!

 

Anyway, how much farther can they go with this legislation? What happens if you talk to a woman without permission? How do you determine the legal limit of a stare, or it’s intensity?

 

If you dare to wink, that’s an obscenity! God forbid you ask him/her/it out on a date! I can see the Metropolitan Police are going to have their work cut out, ridding society of….er….men!

How about harrassment from "Street furniture"? CCTV, 5G towers, Wi-Fi Hotspots?

 

I'd like to use the streets without being under attack from all this crap.

 

I'd like the government to stop harassing us with anti-social, 'woke' policies, aimed at dividing the two genders.

Small Heath, Birmingham, or as I call it "Somal Heath"

 

Also around the Stratford Road in Sparkbrook, near where I work, most of the people you see congregating around the cafes are Africans, there is a large population of Eritreans, Ethiopians and Somalians there as well as in neighbouring Small Heath. It doesn't bother me, and I've never had any hassle, but you're right, they've created their own little ghetto there. The shops and cafes are all used by the local community, and I bet many residents don't even leave the area.

This is sad news, but does anyone else find this a bit 'odd'?

 

Ruth Madoc: Hi-de-Hi! actress dies aged 79

Ruth Madoc

Quote

Actress Ruth Madoc, who starred in the BBC sitcom Hi-de-Hi!, has died aged 79, her agent says.

Her agent said she died in hospital on Friday afternoon after surgery for a fall she had earlier in the week.

Phil Belfield of talent agency Belfield & Ward Ltd described her as a "unique talent loved by many".

He paid tribute to her "iconic" TV performance as Gladys Pugh in the 1980s comedy Hi-de-Hi!, about a holiday camp in the late 50s.

"It is with much sadness that we have to announce the death of our dear and much loved client Ruth Madoc," he said in a statement.

From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-63927507

 

The rest of the article is the usual tributes and condolences, but what I'm most interested in is the second line of the article only.

 

She had a 'fall' earlier in the week, which required some surgery as a result, and then she subsequently 'died' on Friday afternoon.

 

What gives? OK, at the age of 79 she's probably no spring chicken, but still, who expects to die following surgery after having a fall?

 

I could understand her death if she had been seriously ill for some time, but something doesn't seem right about this.

 

NHS medical negligence? A botched surgical operation? Deliberately 'bumped off'?

'Multicultural', 'melting pot', 'integration' and  'diversity' 'are good'. These and other slogans were used to prepare us for mass immigration. But imo humans are basically a tribal species and most want to live with their own kind (including middle-class liberals can be seen as a tribe). Bucking this truth only creates trouble.  We're all like that, the British too, eg when I go to the costas in Spain they have lots of English and Irish bars for the ex-pats as well as the tourists.  This knowledge isn't new, there's been ghettos and 'quarters' for millennia and anyone with a basic education in history knows this. Yet the postmodern progressives seem to think that this time it's different and we won't suffer inter-racial or communal conflict on a large scale.

probably broke her hip, having a general anaesthetic is always  risky but much more so with advancing age afaik.

its what jim rickards is warning about;

Why Inflation Will Turn To Deflation Fast - James Rickards

 

as clear as mud but deflation would destroy many SMBs , gobbling up any savings and stock value. 

 

which would ratchet up upon business unit loans when vacate premises increase

 

it would definately panick the bankers, international investors and allow government to impliment some new measures

It occurred to me today that the measures are already here hidden in plain sight, ready for them turning up the dial. Eg we have "Universal Credit" which is means-tested at the moment but they only need to loosen the criteria to make it truly universal, ie UBI.
