🤯 The US military's daily gas use
It's about control, not what actually works. That's the modern world for ya
I know these are sometimes long.
But skim away.
If it catches your attention, spend some time there.
Most important of all, don’t feel guilty about not reading the entire thing.

Because it’s about control.
This is just a bootloader for what’s next.
They want to normalize a monopoly on fear and your health so they can continually fill your mind with narrative and your body with chemicals that make them profit.
BTW, anyone calling another an "anti-vaxxer" will be shown by history to be the same as those that defended slavery and segregation. Time will tell. At least this time we will have a record.
There’s another thing that’s kinda sad and funny.
Most of the aggressively pro-vaccine public are those that have never read a single book, research paper, or even asked their doctor any questions about safety, efficacy, the history of sanitation, etc.
This is what you see in herd mentality. It’s the mob picking a target and channeling their primal rage and us/vs them tribalism at them as a scapegoat. It’s a cathartic form of release to reduce built-up tensions that come from another human being “different” or being in the “other” group.
Humans have been at war with each other since the dawn of time. All of the byproducts of our existence as hunter-gatherers and having to survive in the hard wild come out in full force in our current mismatched environment.
Simply put, humans are not designed for the Internet or social media, or mainstream media.
The Meaning Crisis
The more addicted to fake dopamine hits that aren’t earned, the faster you slide into a meaning crisis.
Hard things are integral to a meaningful life.
Shrink the US GOV and maybe you’ll do something good for the climate
The United States Department of Defense is one of the largest single consumers of energy in the world, responsible for 93% of all US government fuel consumption in 2007 (Air Force: 52%; Navy: 33%; Army: 7%. Other DoD: 1%). In FY 2006, the DoD used almost 30,000 gigawatt hours (GWH) of electricity, at a cost of almost $2.2 billion. The DoD's electricity use would supply enough electricity to power more than 2.3 million average American homes.
The Department of Defense uses 4,600,000,000 US gallons (1.7×1010 L) of fuel annually, an average of 12,600,000 US gallons (48,000,000 L) of fuel per day. A large Army division may use about 6,000 US gallons (23,000 L) per day.

💰Get Free Bitcoin from every purchase… for real
The Fold card has impressed me. I’m now using it for everything. Man, I wish I had this a couple of years ago… my Bitcoin rewards from shopping on Amazon alone would be tens of thousands.
It’s a debit card (credit cards coming soon) that gives you rewards back in Bitcoin.
Why is this better than typical reward cards that might give you 1-3% cashback?
Because that’s cash… and cash is a devaluing currency, whereas Bitcoin is an appreciating asset. Over time, the difference in a lesser amount of Bitcoin will completely demolish whatever you can get back in dollars.
I’ve upgraded to the Fold+ card which has a $150 yearly fee. I did the math. It’s so worth it. If you sign up for that, you get $25 off and I get $25 towards my yearly fee. Win-win.
Get your Fold card here today (there’s a free version of the app you can use to earn rewards as well, so sign-up either way).

Bitcoin is not about investing or making money.
It’s about freedom from theft.
From the bottom of my heart, please buy Bitcoin and don’t sell it.
Every year that goes by, you will be grateful you did.
And the only favor I ask is to share with others why they should do the same.
⛰ Sovereign I Project by SovereignHumans.org
My goal this week is to distill all of the ideas we have for this project and to create a basic financial plan.
We will be then talking to interested investors, homesteaders, owners, and members as we get this thing going. The tentative plan is to have a plot and break ground within 6 months.
This is how I want to live my life and raise my kids. And the thing missing from living in the country is community. So I’m going to build a community that will attract other humans to come. Then we outsource the entire plan so others will build their own versions around the world.
Why voting is dumb
Millions of dollars are raised by two opposing political organizations, one of which you're supposed to "pick" in the name of "freedom" and "democracy."
The richest usually wins. But even that is an illusion.
The people that fund everything profit no matter who wins. They cozy up and divert funds to the winner and make pacts and plans and scratch backs and get their backs scratched.
A few large institutions control the mainstream media, and they are used to maintain power by maintaining the narrative.
That's all it is.
The masses are kept docile through propaganda.
The democratic election process in America is manipulated and controlled, and it is more manipulated than any of us can fathom.
Let's think about that point for a moment.
If political parties can make "donations" to a political campaign, are they not conspiring to elect that candidate?
What is the difference between using a news outlet to focus and manipulate a message to get millions to think a certain way that favors one candidate over another?
You saw how hard they attacked Trump. That was mostly because he was an outsider and didn't play "their game" "nicely."
They will do it again to anyone that comes from the outside—if any outsider is ever able to get close enough to get attacked, that is.
