2024·07·06 Joe Biden Didn’t Win Daily Thread

What is it that feeds our battle, yet starves our victory?

Speaker Johnson: A Reminder.

And MTG is there to help make it stick.

January 6 tapes. A good start…but then nothing.

Were you just hoping we’d be distracted by the first set and not notice?

Are you THAT kind of “Republican”?

Are you Kevin McCarthy lite?

What are you waiting for?

I have a personal interest in this issue.

And if you aren’t…what the hell is wrong with you?

Lawyer Appeasement Section

OK now for the fine print.

This is the WQTH Daily Thread. You know the drill. There’s no Poltical correctness, but civility is a requirement. There are Important Guidelines,  here, with an addendum on 20191110.

We have a new board – called The U Tree – where people can take each other to the woodshed without fear of censorship or moderation.

And remember Wheatie’s Rules:

1. No food fights
2. No running with scissors.
3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
4. Zeroth rule of gun safety: Don’t let the government get your guns.
5. Rule one of gun safety: The gun is always loaded.
5a. If you actually want the gun to be loaded, like because you’re checking out a bump in the night, then it’s empty.
6. Rule two of gun safety: Never point the gun at anything you’re not willing to destroy.
7. Rule three: Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire.
8. Rule the fourth: Be sure of your target and what is behind it.

(Hmm a few extras seem to have crept in.)

Spot (i.e., paper) Prices

Last week:

Gold $2,327.00
Silver $29.18
Platinum $1,003.00
Palladium $1,003.00
Rhodium $5,000.00

This week, 3PM Mountain Time, Kitco “ask” prices. Markets have closed for the weekend.

Gold $2,389.60
Silver $31.16
Platinum $1,038.00
Palladium $1,064.00
Rhodium $5,025.00

Substantial hikes in price towards the end of the week. Percentage wise, Friday the big winner was platinum, up over three percent (but note it is now below palladium again). Silver came in second. When gold takes a major move, silver makes an even bigger move, lately. So if you can guess which way the frog will jump, silver is your best play, at least in the paper markets. For physical, drop-it-on-your-foot silver, the buy-sell spread at an actual bullion dealer is likely to be wide. (I’d certainly look to see what it is before making a major purchase.) If you guess wrong about which way the frog will jump…you could lose your shirt.

If you’re buying silver, choose either junk silver or American Eagles. Nobody will question the silver content while other forms of silver are susceptible to challenge.

pgroup2

All true but not what anybody wants to have to go through if using to barter.

“Back in the days of real money, many people would actually acid-test gold coins when tendered.”

Back when men were men, they’d just bite it to test authenticity 😁

WSB

And then no teeth.

scott467

Clearly you’re only planning to buy on 5th Avenue, where the signs outside during the apocalypse say “American Eagles or Bust!” 😂

I would love to have American Eagles, but the premiums are insane.

If you want sovereign coins, I would get Canadia Maple Leafs. They’re recognized anywhere in the world, a reputable mint, and the premium is usually at least several dollars less per ounce 👍

So, what were the coins Roosevelt never confiscated?

“Family lore” has it that my paternal grandfather, just after he lost his job at the start of the Great Depression, took the family savings and bought a $20 gold piece with them. He hid the coin at the house.
Then, FDR confiscated privately-owned gold. This coin “survived” the confiscation. At some point, my grandfather must have given to the coin to my father, who then hid it at my family home. My father, just before his death, told my brother where the coin was hidden. My brother now has the coin. I don’t know if he’s hidden it at his home.

Aubergine

That is a COOL story!

Stay friends with your brother.  😂 

mollypitcher5

incredible family story !!

Alison

Thanks for sharing this, steve! Family lore!!

PAVACA

SteveInCO
Thank you. I don’t know what my brother did do, or what he will do, with this coin. My guess is that if he hasn’t sold it, he may at some point give it to his son (my nephew.)
Another “family lore” story, this one I was part of:
My maternal grandfather was lucky enough to keep his job as a master pattern maker at a steel mill in Pittsburgh during the Great Depression. Apparently, he always took the silver coins part of his salary (he was paid in cash) and kept it in a canvas bag tucked into the back of the chiffarobe in a bedroom of the apartment where he and his household lived. Nobody but himself was allowed to access this chiffarobe. He kept up this “squirreling away” for decades.
When “Poppa” died in 1973, the apartment was broken up and his wife moved to another place.
When the chiffarobe was opened, there was the bag—filled to the top with silver nickels, dimes, quarters, etc. I saw this bag and contents.
The money in this bag helped my maternal grandmother to purchase some nice furniture and settle into her new apartment.

Never thought of that one.

Why would the premium be substantially less?

kalbokalbs

I’ve known 24kt gold is softer, easily damaged, than 22kt gold, 18KT…

Naive question.

gold Canadian Maple Leafs are so pure that they damage easily…

So, 24kt, 99.999 pure coins from Canadian Mint are more pure than 24kt, 99.999 gold from US Mint. Other mints, companies such as Suisse, Apmex…

Seems I am missing something or took something out of context.

kalbokalbs

Interesting. Thanks.

scott467

That may only make sense if you’re just buying a few coins though, and you can’t know what the spread will be when you go to sell, so my thought is to get the most silver as you can get for your fiat dollar.

Here’s what I mean.

Suppose you are concerned about the imminent collapse of a fiat money system near you.

You have $20K in fiat, melting like an ice cube, as Biden inflation eats away at it.

You could get 606 ounces of Maple Leafs at $33 each, or 540 ounces of American Eagles at $37 each.

So you get 66 more ounces if you get the Maple Leafs, for the same amount of worthless fiat trash paper currency.

If it is ever time to sell (if the silver to gold ratio gets back down around 15:1, that would be a good time to convert your silver to gold), who knows what the spread will be then.

Suppose it’s like your example, and the dealer is paying $6 more for American Eagles than Maple Leafs.

If you bought American Eagles, your 540 ounces + $6 per coin = an extra $3,240 vs. an equivalent number of Maple Leafs.

But you don’t have an equivalent number of Maple Leafs, you have an extra 66 Maple Leafs, because you got more of them for the same amount of garbage fiat when you bought them.

Even if silver is only $50/oz (it should be much higher in the not too distant future), the extra 66 ounces = $3,300.

So you come out ahead.

Suppose the spot price of silver is exactly $50/oz, and the dealer is paying $45 for Maple Leafs and $51 for American Eagles, so it’s the same $6 spread.

606 Maple Leafs x $45 each = $27,270

540 American Eagles x $51 each = $27,540

So the American Eagles come out $270 ahead, but if you shop around, you should be able to find a dealer offering a better price, say $46 per Maple Leaf. 606 x $46 each = $27,876

All else being more or less equal, more is still more.

If you’re using silver for commerce, and a meal costs an ounce, you could have 606 of those Maple Leafs, but only 540 of the American Eagles.

That’s an extra 66 days worth of meals with the Maple Leafs.

You might get hungry during those 66 days, if you ran out of silver, because you bought American Eagles 😁

“Why would the premium be substantially less?”

_________

No good reason I know of, besides hometown preference and/or the Walking Liberty design (by Adolph A. Weinman, first used in 1916 for the U.S. silver half-dollar and used until 1947) is just a much more attractive design than whatever modern artists and their computers can come up with.

In Canadia, their Maple Leaf probably has a premium over the American Eagle.

In the UK, I expect their own coin with Chuckles on one side and some sort of tribute to tyranny on the other commands a premium over the American Eagle.

Anything with Chuckles on it should sell at a heavy discount though, I mean, who wants to carry that around in their pocket or look at it?

All righty, then.

pgroup2

An interesting fact about junk silver – because of the Hunt bros in 1980, a lot of the common years of silver coins minted ended up disappearing. The result is that today the most likely dates that one finds are those that formerly were rare.

pgroup2

It’s a fickle little niche.

Some types of foreign silver are reasonable. Around here, you can find a lot of vintage Mexican coins.

Ha!!! Change the metal standard!!! Sound like a scam?

More information about this period can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_silver

Scam. As always.

I would never know how to barter unless the other person needed something of value. And what would that be?

I’ve got one of those Spanish dollars dated 1773, will that be pure silver ?

My mum’s auntie gave it to me when I was a kid, I don’t think it would be worth much to a collector because at some time in it’s life someone has drilled a little hole through it at the top.

So, Steve, I guess my point is…who determines the value of something we know nothing of what might be valuable, especially if it has no inherent value to local people who need something else?

WSB

Yes, true, but a side of beef can also be very valuable.

cthulhu

So can eggs.

WSB

And oddly, tulips.

WSB

Indeed.

WSB

Just another commodity to be bartered. As cthulhu states below, eggs are also a commodity waiting to be traded.

Metals are not necessarily needed. Eggs and beef may be.

LOLOL!!!!! YESSSSSS!!!!! Therefore the little stamp on the so-needed piece of silver!

Could I have been better off with the 11 chickens? Eggs and a LOT of roasts on Sundays?

And understood about the sterling silver scratching.

There are maker’s marks and numbers to identify silver plate versus sterling silver. In my younger days, I was collecting Gorham Mythologoque silverware, one piece at a time. It was interesting because the handles and backs of the spoons had myth designs.

Barb Meier

It makes it easier when you’re only focused on one maker’s silverware mark. Gorham had three different marks over time but basically: a lion, an anchor, and a capital G. There are photos here:

Barb Meier

My cousin (and godsister) married a guy who was an auctioneer, first at a cattle auction house and later in business for himself. They’ve worked hard and done well over the years. It is a hard job being an auctioneer. I think farm equipment is probably among their most profitable sales due to the expense of large computerized equipment.

cthulhu

Part of the problem with any sort of commodity is that it can boom and bust based on market forces much bigger than individuals can deal with. Sure, you could have predicted that miners would get rich in the gold fields of California in the 1850s…..but who would have predicted the Free Silver Movement among wheat farmers as a result?

There is a really cute physics “parlor trick” you can do with the rare earth element erbium. If you put a tiny amount into ultra-pure glass, then draw it into optical fiber, you get something that walks and talks like a regular optical fiber. Regular single-mode fiber has two transmission windows, 1310nm and 1550nm, where it “conducts” a signal optimally. When you light up the Erbium-Doped Fiber with a 980nm laser, you can actually get more 1550 at the output than you put in at the front. Each little erbium can get excited by the 980 laser, and when a 1550 photon comes by, it can emit another one.

Like most rare earths, erbium is not particularly rare. It is, however, a complete pain-in-the-tuchis to isolate…..and this little trick does not work with cerium or lanthanum….

So I had some thoughts about investing in an erbium brick back in the 1990s.

Problem is, the enabling technologies that would allow someone to appreciate the value of an erbium brick are quite sophisticated — not everyone can make optical fiber at scale — and there would be very few people or institutions interested in bartering for your erbium brick or parts thereof.

Furthermore, rolling out a massive Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifier upgrade to the US fiber plant would be a huge project that could take years to implement….so I couldn’t count on a sliver of erbium buying me a sandwich before I starved.

WSB

Touché.

WSB

And I am with you. I could not survive unless I had a side of beef or an egg.

The Gold, Silver or Rhodium, not so much.

WSB

No, maybe a rooster and a hen.

Add in a buck and a few doe goats and you are good to go!

There is a reason for goats being found in practically every 3rd World Country.

Pot belly pigs are useful too.

Potbelly pigs | Homesteading Forum

Anyone raise pot bellied pigs for meat? | Survivalist Forum

 I did some research and found that there are a few farms out there that raise pot bellied pigs for meat, they raise them for smaller portions (80lb pig = 40-50lbs meat verses raising a big pig to 600+ and having to store that much extra meat).

I had never thought about that but it does make better sense to only butcher when you need it instead of 1 time and then having to put up that much meat.

Pig is pig no matter the size, according to the family it tasted just like any other pork just less fat…

What age should you slaughter a pot belly pig for eating?

9 months of age is the ideal age for slaughtering, as this will allow the meat to remain tender and lean.The older that the animal gets the tougher that the meat will become, at 9 months of age the meat will have the ideal marbling ratio (meat to fat conversions). At this time you would receive approximately 30 lbs of meat.

Aubergine

Well, for that matter, couldn’t you just raise any pig until it weighed 80 pounds, and then slaughter it for meat?

The only reason people let hogs get huge was to get as much meat as possible from them.

pgroup2

So why do we let people get huge? It’s not like we’re going to eat them.  😂 

Aubergine

LOL! Ick!

“WHO we, serf?” — Hillary

I know you’re joking around, Pgroup. You do remind me of Rush Limbaugh’s reply to a caller about spaying one’s pets. I know, people and pets are very different but it is interesting to me nonetheless. Perhaps the answer to why is: let huge people pass in peace.

Rush never lost sight of the fact that as long as it is not animal abuse, it is not a third party’s business which way an owner decides to go. hehehe always in Realville.

Gail Combs

Pot bellies stay relatively small so the cost of keeping a boar and a sow would be a LOT LESS.

And if I recall correctly pot bellies are ‘easy keepers’ you have to REALLY WORK at trying to keep them from getting too fat.

The adult pigs  weigh up to 60-110 pounds, 12-20 inches in height, and can live 15-20 years. They can be weaned as young as a month, eat just about anything and will root up things like poison ivy and eat the roots so they are GREAT for prepping a garden spot, turning out under an orchard to clean up the drops… in the forest to eat acorns… or just out on pasture.

The BIGGY is they are MUCH easier to fence in and NOT NEARLY AS DANGEROUS. A neighbor had thier 2 yr old eaten by their prize winning boar… And I mean that literally. All they found were the shoes!

So if you want pigs, go for these little guys. They are clean and VERY intelligent. And yes I have had them.

Aubergine

Yikes! All good reasons for the pot belly!

Gail Combs

If I was several decades younger and interested in homesteading, I would consider going with the following:

CHICKENS

the Dominique Breed

 Dominiques are a perfect family chicken. They are hearty, docile and friendly. They do well in both the heat and the cold. And a huge plus is that they will average around 250 eggs per year! 

They are also good eating and only the Silkies are friendlier in my opinion

SHEEP & GOATS

You want WORM RESISTANCE!
So for Hair Sheep — the St. Croix and Barbados Blackbelly.

If you want wool, go for a mongrel with hair sheep lineage. It takes 3 generations to go from hair to wool or the reverse. The Gulf Coast and  Florida Cracker are also good candidates.

The Kiko is the most worm resistant of the goat breeds but the cashmere breeders are breeding with an eye towards resistance. Since it is not a ‘Breed’ but a characteristic, it allows a lot more out-crossing and selection.

CATTLE

I do not like cows, but if I had them it would be Dexters. I have a friend who raises them. They are

Dexter Cattle

Breed Facts Status: Recovering Use: Meat, Dairy, Draft Adult Weight: 700 – 1000 lbs. Temperament: Gentle, easily handled Experience Level: Novice – Intermediate Notes: Naturally small breed; efficient on limited acreage; good family cow Country of Origin: Ireland.

40 inches tall and  are some of the smallest cattle in the world. They were considered an endangered breed, now recovering.

If I was NOT going to have a tractor I would consider Haflinger horses or Dexter Oxen as draft animals.

For all these grass eaters, Worming in a sacrifice area and rotational grazing helps A LOT as does selecting for hardiness.

And of course the Pot Bellies.

Gail Combs

I feel for you Steve. I am inside today to let my back recover and because it is brutal out with a heat index of 104 F thanks to the humidity. The low was only 77 which is very high for this area. Usually it gets into the sixties or low 70s even in summer.

Aubergine

I wish I could have all that!

Gail Combs

We did at one point. Then they passed a ONE LINER to an existing law and wiped out my petting farm.

Aubergine

That sucks.

Gail Combs

I was NOT HAPPY!

We sold off most of the animals and equipment for pennies on the dollar.

However, it is the kids who never got to see or interact with farm animals I feel sorry for.

Barb Meier

My mom warned me about sows being dangerous when they had babies. I’ve never encountered anyone who actually lost a child to a boar. How tragic.

Gail Combs

Yes, a sow can be real nasty if the piglet screams.

Barb Meier

Two of my mom’s siblings had pigs on their farms. I got to go with my uncle Mel to feed the pigs, but never went near them on my own. Piglets are so cute, it would be tempting for kids to want to get close to them and get in big trouble with a sow.

Gail Combs

One other comment on pigs.

Our ancestors used them as buldozers.

Drive a steel rod in to make several holes around a stump (or rock). fill the hole with corn and the hogs will go after the corn. Repeat until the stump is up rooted.

See: https://permies.com/t/63587/Clearing-land-pigs-goats-advice

Walter Jeffries (of the NoNais website) made this comment in another forum.

I do not find that pigs are anywhere near as active at stump removal as I have heard claimed. Our pigs should be very well motivated, they are pastured and don’t get candy (e.g., commercial hog feed grain diet). Yet 👉they would rather eat the clover and other forages than mess with the stumps.👈 After the stumps have rotted for half a decade and have some good grubs in them I do see them begin to work the stumps but it takes about a decade for them to really clear them out….

I am not surprised, knowing Walter, he is too tender hearted to do what was probably done. Turn the hogs out in an area with no other food but the corn around the stumps. Hunger is a GREAT motivator.

cthulhu

When we were playing with it, the technology was fairly new. In the late ’90’s, I might have been able to get a brick before everyone knew how useful it was going to be.

Oh, and what do perishable commodities have to weigh against a silver piece that might not hold value in a week or two? Just wondering…

Gail Combs

A few definitions from the Mises Institute:

Freedom, Inequality, Primitivism, and the Division of Labor
And Investopedia.
The History of Money: Bartering to Banknotes to Bitcoin

I wrote this many years ago so I am not sure of the source.

If you do not understand what money is, or what wealth is or what true capitalism is you are helping the banksters spread their evil. The banksters, and their tame media, brand those of us who try to spread the truth as ignorant liars or kooks.

What is Money?
Money is the tool of exchange. It is the logical refinement of the barter system. Money is used by people as the easiest means of trading value for value. Money has been shells, wampum, obsidian arrows, brass, gold, silver, copper and now paper certificates.

Money, especially those pieces of paper, is a token of honor. When you go to work you accept money in payment for your effort or products whether you are an employee selling labor or the business owner selling a product or service. All civilized people do so only on the conviction that this token of honor can be exchange for the product of the effort of others.

Bankers short circuit the system because the “money” they create is created out of nothing. In the exchange of value for value, they cheat the system by exchanging value for debt and use trickery to conceal this theft.

So what is Wealth?

Wealth is the product of man’s mind. Man uses his ingenuity, and labor to shape raw materials into products others desire. Products that he can then trade, using money, for the items he wants and needs.

In an honest society, without laws bent to favor the few, it will be the best product or the best performance that wins your money. This is how ingenuity is rewarded and civilization advances.

The banksters, with their bought and paid for media have promoted the idea that some how capitalism is theft. They have promoted the idea that our present system of NEO-Corporatism is capitalism. Then they use the evil system they have created to convince people to hate capitalism.

Why? Because the banksters HATE capitalism since true capitalism will not allow them to loot nations. Banksters LOVE socialism, progressivism, fascism and neo-corporatism, or any form of government that restricts the rights of individuals thus allowing them to steal control of the government. This allows them to direct the wealth of a nation into their pockets in exchange for their worthless scraps of paper that represent nothing.

For banksters are looters, thieves and fraudsters who take our wealth from us by trickery and the force of a corrupt government.

The definition of Corporatism is no longer a live link (now Archive)

Corporatism

Historically, corporatism or corporativism (Italian corporativismo) is 👉political system in which legislative representation is given to industries or professional and economic groups. Ostensibly, the entire society is to be run by decisions collectively made by these groups. 👈[𝗢𝗨𝗥 𝗗𝗘𝗠𝗢𝗖𝗥𝗔𝗖𝗬 𝗮𝗻𝘆𝗼𝗻𝗲?]

It is a form of class collaboration put forward as an alternative to class conflict and was first proposed in Pope Leo XIII‘s 1891 encyclicalRerum Novarum which influenced Catholic trade unions which were organised in the early twentieth century to counter the influence of trade unions founded on a socialist ideology. The Vatican’s ideas were also influential in the development of fascist economic theory.

Under Fascism in Italy, employers were organized into syndicates known as “corporations” according to their industries, and these groups were given representation in a legislative body known as the Camera dei Fasci e delle Corporazioni.

According to various theorists corporatism was an attempt to create a “modern” version of feudalism by merging the “corporate” interests with those of the state. Also see neofeudalism.

OUCH!, I think I can see why it was scrubbed!

cthulhu

One of the traditional ways of amassing great wealth was real estate. You hold land and rent it out, you use the rents to buy more land.

In Silicon Valley, the Mariani family is well-off [ https://mariani.com/pages/welcome-to-our-family ] — they bought real estate when the place was orchards (they started with an operation in drying fruit) and ended-up being landlords to Apple. The Sobratos are doing well for themselves also [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_A._Sobrato ].

Of course, our VSGPOTUSDJT knows a thing or two about real estate, as well.

Unfortunately, this has become increasingly difficult with government’s heavy involvement in land use coupled with the financialization of the economy.

This, I understand, but without taxation, though.

Other than that, I do not understand.

PAVACA

Coothie
Indeed, real estate can be a “valuable” asset — under the right conditions.
For example, a house that has a mortgage or some other type of loan / lien on it, is “owned” by the entity that holds the mortgage / loan / lien — until the obligation is paid off in full.
But even then, the now-free-of-obligation to the above entities is replaced by the one that was extant when these obligations were extant — real estate taxes levied by city / county / school “authorities.”
And if those obligations aren’t paid — even if the home / land is “free and clear” of other obligations — the “authorities” can take the home / land.
For years before my father’s death, Yours Truly paid the real estate and “school” taxes on my family’s home, even though it became “free and clear” of the mortgage years previously — because the real estate tax and “school tax” levied by the local “authorities” ate too far into the Social Security payments that my father lived on.

If there is something that clearly prematurely ages a person, then there ought to likewise be something that clearly and obviously slows the aging process.

If certain things can dramatically speed up aging, there should also be things which dramatically slow it down.

I think the Cabal have something of a handle on that.

Henry Kissinger died @  100 years old

Even Silicon Valley’s Elite Age, but for How Long? – Science in the News

January 25, 2019 – And while its unknown whether any of the Bay Area billionaires actually receive transfusions from Ambrosia, Peter Thiel is purportedly interested in young blood therapy…

There has been much talk in recent years about the disconnectedness of coastal elites, epitomized by Silicon Valley characters such as VC-mogul Peter Thiel and Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Their wealth and fame make them appear god-like, free of the mortal cares of middle-America. Yet, death, the great equalizer (it could also be said to be the great motivator), is something that they will experience in much the same way as anyone else.

This fact—that they will age and die—is not lost on these Silicon Valley elite, but with their superhuman resources, they believe they can buy a little more time. So, in recent years, West Coast billionaires have given untold millions to Bay Area startups that are trying to slow the aging process by combatting several of its root causes.

Could the cure for aging be imminent, kept secret until it’s fine-tuned in a Silicon Valley research lab, or are these billionaires just spending their money profligately? Here, I’ll discuss how three of these companies are trying to prolong the lives of their über-wealthy patrons (and everyone else) and what it could mean if they succeed…

As we age, cells accumulate damage and become senescent, a state characterized by irreversible changes that stop them from dividing. Senescence is a valuable defense mechanism: cells that have accrued too much damage are at greater risk to become cancerous and divide uncontrollably. However, the build-up of senescent cells during the course of one’s lifetime can contribute to a number of age-related diseases (arthritis and diabetes, to name a couple), stemming from their constant release of inflammatory molecules….

In Brisbane, California, a company called Unity Biotechnology wants to eliminate senescent cells specifically with a class of drugs called senolytics. Backed by Peter Thiel and Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, the company’s premier senolytic, UBX0101, has had impressive results in trials for arthritis. The drug efficiently kills senescent cells and significantly reduces symptoms of the disease, which is spurred by inflammation.

However, the real promise of senolytics come from related studies in mice, which show that clearance of senescent cells increase average lifespan by more than 24%. Similar results in humans would increase average lifespan by more than a decade and a half. While the clinical trial of UBX0101 might be targeted at curing arthritis, it holds promise to extend human lifespan if it is shown to be safe and effective…  

This one and Peter Thiel made the news a while back. It is why I went looking for this info.

…To study how young blood spurs tissue regeneration, scientists started to employ a seemingly crazy technique: they joined old and young mice to each other, allowing their circulatory systems to fuse so that they share a blood supply (Figure 2). Incredibly, these experiments made the old mice more youthful in a number of ways, increasing their ability to regenerate tissues such as muscle, liver, and the brain, though the exact mechanism of how this occurs is hotly debated. For now, it’s thought that young blood has a number of circulating “youth factors” that can stimulate tissue repair in older animals….

I think the adrenochrome conspiracy theory was floated to cover the above. It also explains why so many youngsters are trafficked.

A common technique of biologists is to draw inspiration from nature: find a species that exhibits some extraordinary trait and study it in hopes of applying the knowledge to human well-being. This strategy is employed by South San Francisco company Calico (California Life Company), which is the brainchild of Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page. The goal of the company is to understand the root causes of aging, and, in doing so, extend healthy human lifespan.

How the company will achieve that goal, however, is opaque. In the past several years, they have published several landmark papers, including a description of how egg cells in worms completely rejuvenate themselves upon fertilization and a paper showing that naked mole rats—which almost never get cancer and can live upwards of 30 years—do not become more likely to die as they age. However, the company is quite secretive with how these research studies might lead to treatments combating aging, not sharing much with the outside research world…

Harvard Gazette

April 11, 2016 – A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that income is closely correlated with life expectancy, with the richest Americans living as much as 15 years longer than the poorest — and even the poor living longer in wealthy areas.

The Growing Gap in Life Expectancy by Income — FAS CRS Reports

Congressional Research Service — Updated July 6, 2021

….a 2015 study by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) found that for men born in 1930, individuals in the highest income quintile (top 20%) could expect to live 5.1 years longer at age 50 than men in the lowest income quintile. This gap has increased significantly over time. Among men born in 1960, those in the top income quintile could expect to live 12.7 years longer at age 50 than men in the bottom income quintile. This NAS study finds similar patterns for women: the life expectancy gap at age 50 between the bottom and top income quintiles of women expanded from 3.9 years for the 1930 birth cohort to 13.6 years for the 1960 birth cohort….

Amish Longevity May Be Due to Genetic ‘Fountain of Youth’

Genetic mutation in extended Amish family in Indiana protects against aging and increases longevity

The first genetic mutation that appears to protect against multiple aspects of biological aging in humans has been discovered in an extended family of Old Order Amish living in the vicinity of Berne, Indiana, according to a Northwestern Medicine study published in Science Advances.

An experimental “longevity” drug that recreates the effect of the mutation is now being tested in human trials to see if it provides protection against some aging-related illnesses.

Indiana Amish kindred (immediate family and relatives) with the mutation live more than 10 percent longer and have 10 percent longer telomeres (a protective cap at the end of our chromosomes that is a biological marker of aging) compared to Amish kindred members who don’t have the mutation, reports the new study.

Amish with this mutation also have significantly less diabetes and lower fasting insulin levels. A composite measure that reflects vascular age also is lower — indicative of retained flexibility in blood vessels in the carriers of the mutation — than those who don’t have the mutation, the study found.

These Amish individuals have very low levels of PAI-1 (plasminogen activator inhibitor), a protein that comprises part of a “molecular fingerprint” related to aging or senescence of cells. It was previously known that PAI-1 was related to aging in animals but unclear how it affected aging in humans….

The Amish kindred in Berne, Indiana, have been genetically and culturally isolated and most are at least distantly related. The ancestors of the Indiana Amish emigrated in the middle of the 19th century from Berne, Switzerland. The town recalls the architecture of their original home in Switzerland with its Swiss-style clock tower and architecture.

The mutation was introduced into the Amish kindred by farmers from Switzerland, who moved into the area. Two of their descendants, who carried the mutation, married into the Amish community. 👉The Amish community outside the Berne area does not carry this mutation.

“This is the only kindred on the planet that has this mutation,” Vaughan said. “It’s a ‘private mutation.’”

  :wpds_arrow: People with the mutation live to be 85 on average, significantly longer than their predicted average lifespan of 71 for Amish in general, which hasn’t changed much over the last century.

The age range of Amish in the study was 18 to 85 with the average age of carriers 44 and the unaffected 46 years old….

As you well know I am ALL FOR getting out of the city! Even when renting I lived as far from the city as I could. One house was built before the Revolution and had no heat upstairs. It was in the NY Finger Lakes area… COLD!!! 🕸

It was split in 1/2 with my area having a very narrow steep stair and a closet the size of a door and 6 inches deep with a set of 6 pegs. So at a thrift shop I bought an old set of wardrobes made of walnut that I still have.

Alison

It is a constant question in my mind … where do humans cross the line in ‘playing God’. I marvel at some medical, nutritional, etc. advances and cringe at others.

Do any of these geniuses working to extend life explain WHY they think living longer is necessary or preferable? For everyone or just the rarified upper echelon? Why would it have been beneficial to society for Rockefeller, Kissinger et al to be here another 20-40 years? Can they boost Biden’s 81 years and give him another 4 to ruin us further? When do the number of longer-living elites crowd out the up and coming … if enough older elites were still functional, how would there have been room for the Musks, Thiels, et al?

Perhaps the Amish have a mutated longevity gene because God intended that to be so. Who are we to know?

I’m living the same way as Tradebait, trusting God to lead me
and praying I listen and follow. 🙏

The thought that crossed my mind is, WHAT IF some of those ‘Covid Vaccine’ shots that were a lot less lethal WERE NOT ‘Covid Vaccine’ AT ALL but experimentation with some of this longevity stuff.

Uh, That’s Not A Conspiracy Theory
[QUOTE]
…What originally got my attention was the tinfoil hat crowd screaming about lots being intentionally distributed to certain people to kill them — in other words certain Covid-19 vaccine lots were for all intents and purposes poisoned. That was wildly unlikely so I set out to disprove it and apply some broom handles to the tinfoil hatters heads. What I found, however, was both interesting and deeply disturbing.
Lots are quite large, especially when you’re dealing with 200 million people and 400 million doses. Assuming the lots are not preferentially assigned to certain cohorts (e.g. one goes to all nursing homes, etc) adverse reactions should thus be normally distributed between lots; 

 if they’re not one of these things is almost-certainly true:

  • There is a serious manufacturing quality problem or you produced something without understanding how it would work in the body and thus failed to control for something you had to in order to wind up with reproduceable results.  That is, some lots are ok, others are contaminated, have too much or too little of the active ingredient in them, some produce wildly more spike-protein than others in the body when injected, etc.OR
  •   :wpds_arrow: Much worse, the lots are intentionally segregated to produce different results. This implies some sort of nefarious intent such as killing people on a differential basis 👉𝕠𝕣 𝕥𝕙𝕒𝕥 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕞𝕒𝕟𝕦𝕗𝕒𝕔𝕥𝕦𝕣𝕖𝕣𝕤 𝕒𝕣𝕖 𝕣𝕦𝕟𝕟𝕚𝕟𝕘 𝕦𝕟𝕤𝕒𝕟𝕔𝕥𝕚𝕠𝕟𝕖𝕕 𝕖𝕩𝕡𝕖𝕣𝕚𝕞𝕖𝕟𝕥𝕤 𝕠𝕟 𝕒 𝕞𝕒𝕤𝕤 𝕓𝕒𝕤𝕚𝕤 𝕒𝕞𝕠𝕟𝕘 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕡𝕠𝕡𝕦𝕝𝕒𝕥𝕚𝕠𝕟 𝕒𝕥-𝕝𝕒𝕣𝕘𝕖,👈 since they know what is in each lot and intentionally varied the contents.

OR

  • Perhaps worst of all, reports are now being intentionally suppressed, the injury and death rate hasn’t changed and there are lots with one of the two above problems but it is being intentionally not reported, having been detected almost-instantly and health providers were directed to not report anything serious (e.g. death) associated with the jabs.

[UNQUOTE]

As Wolfie says, AND Logic!

If you are going to do something ILLEGAL you might as well go Whole Hog with your experiments.

Come to think of it a MASS Longevity experiment would be VERY USEFUL in getting BUY-IN across a lot of people in the FDA,CDC and the medical field. After all it really is for the ‘good of humanity’ (AND ME)

Thank you.
In addition to the above, there are other things that can “age” people quickly and to “beyond their years”, among them:
Chronic, unresolved stress
Lifestyle issues — alcoholism, drug use
Certain emotional / psychological issues — untreated / unresolved panic disorder or depression, for example

And the above can negatively affect even people who have “longevity genes” in their family history.

I think I have done relatively well because I found out about the adverse effect of sugar by the time I was 19. I have ALWAYS been very active and outside. Trail riding daily in the woods after work is a GREAT stress reliever. AND I do not drink or smoke. Heck milk was my drink of choice until I had food poisoning in my 30s at which point I switched to tea. Excess weight since I reached 50 has been my biggest problem and now the high blood pressure probably from over production of aldosterone from an aldosterone secreting adrenal tumor. When I took prednisone my blood pressure dropped like a rock which adds to my self diagnosis.

I think the Fenben is helping reduce the tumor even though my dose was 1/10 what I should have taken.

I need to order more Fenben…😋

As part of our discussion of value — and tying into Gail’s observation about the profitability of grocery stores — I have another little anecdote from my time at “Communications Holdings, Inc.”.

In technology, you frequently find yourself in a position where a “wonder widget” will explode into widespread necessity and you can make significant profits. This does actually happen in food on rare occasions (think about sriracha sauce), but it happens all the time in tech. When I walked in the door, the company’s “wonder widget” was the Fabry-Perot laser transmitting FM signals — which enabled the sale of FM modulators, FM demodulators, combiners, splitters, optical receivers and…..laser transmitters. None of that stuff would have been useful had it not been for those selected lasers used in an unusual way.

The “wonder widget” doesn’t have to be spectacular. IIRC, the Fabry-Perot lasers were about $650 each and only about 2/3 of them worked. We could have (and did sometimes, later) use DFB lasers that worked all the time and cost about $1700. Wonder widgets are not inevitable — there can be several ways to skin the cat.

Let’s take, for example, a CATV hybrid amplifier. Here’s a modern link — https://www.qorvo.com/products/p/D10040180GT, from which you can download a data sheet. The look like little chunks of plastic with several stiff wires coming out the bottom, attached to little blocks of metal with screw holes. Back in the day, they were $50-90 each. What they’re used for is taking a block of modulated carriers and amplifying them.

You can build an amplifier board that can do the same thing, but you might need three different amplifier chips — one for 40-400MHz, one for 400-750MHz, and one for 750MHz and above, for instance — and, then, you’d have to tweak them so that the regions were amplified the same. It’s really convenient to just drop one of these in.

Very convenient, that is, unless you needed more than were on the shelf at a distributor. The lead time at the factory is typically around 60+ weeks, and there are not too many manufacturers.

Now, as it turns out, our CEO had come to the realization that a certain new type of hybrid amplifier was going to be extremely convenient in the implementation of certain new CATV networks in about two years…..so we went to the factory and bought their entire next year’s production. Of course, there was no press release from us, the factory, or their distributors.

Over the course of the next year, when equipment was being developed to fill that need, we’d get requests: “we know you’re already buying thousands of these, but can we release three as engineering samples?” Of course we said yes, knowing that these were going to our competitors. In the meantime, we accumulated about $800,000 of these little gems in an anonymous, unmarked closet.

So when customers actually wanted to place orders, we could promise 50 day deliveries, when our competition could begin a complete redesign and deliver in about five months, or wait for the factory to produce more stock in fifteen (which we might purchase, as well).

That’s how you make decent profits for a time — you identify a market need, develop solutions, and corral resources before your competitors. That time ends when everyone can do the same thing and it becomes a race to be the cheapest (as always happens).

TradeBait2

I think the “antique” patriots liked it, too!

“Drinking coffee was viewed as a political statement in the colonies following the Boston Tea Party, with tea then being considered the beverage of the enemy.

The Tea Act of 1773 was meant to bail out the British East India Company after it had run into financial trouble. Previously, the Townshend Revenue Act taxed a number of imported goods, including tea. Colonists boycotted those goods and, accordingly turned to drinking coffee instead as a form of protest. When the Tea Act passed, colonists remained angered that the colonial tea merchants were cut out when the East India Company was granted permission to sell tea directly in the American colonies. The tea boycott ensued, and coffee quickly replaced beer as the most popular beverage of choice in the morning.”

SPECIAL ARE YOU

God made each of us unique and solely
Like He – He wanted us to be holy
He gave each of us both gifts and talents
All are designed to keep us in balance 

No two are similar or even the same 
Nor were we endowed from whence we came
As we grow through our talents we thrive
And we know through grace our gifts come alive

Have you any idea how special you are
More amazing than you believe by far
What would happen if you missed just one day
Who would fill in the blank and pave the way

No matter what others might say or think
No one can replace you if you should blink
God placed you right where He wants you to be
Without hesitation from you or me

If you think of a structure less one block
Or a herd of sheep less one from the flock
Then you know how very special are you
How important it is to do what you do

If you are a page in a chapter book
How will the story make sense or look
The missing link to this mystery
Well it could be you or it could be me

If you are wondering where you fit in 
Just take a step back to where you have been
Consider where we would be without you
So Special are You to this Treehouse crew

But unfortunately the Reform party only got five seats in parliament. What I did notice in my city was that there were an unusual amount of independent and various no hope parties, seven in total when there is usually only one or two. I mentioned that to the guy running the polling center and he agreed with me.
I think it was a deliberate ploy by the two main parties, to dilute the Reform vote that would have come from disaffected Labour and Conservative voters.
For instance one of the independents had a manifesto that was very much like what one would expect from Labour and I noticed that he had a big professionally made banner outside of a union office.

I’ll add to that, out of a total of 48,214,128 registered voters, only 9,674,562 voted for Labour.

On a positive note, she appears to have allowed herself to age naturally. No fillers to make her lips fuller, no noticeable botox to distort her features, no pulled-back skin that looks alien-like 😅. I think we are so used to having public figures look as flawless as possible that we have lost the idea of giving grace to people as they go through the aging process. I understand that it is also human nature to criticize those who are on the other side, politically.

It is the blond hair I find so jarring. If she went PURE WHITE, I think it would look better.
