    Economics and math seldom have a role in politics unfortunately.

    There is a whole thread on brics. Them trying a currency is one of the best weapons against China and Russia. An era of reshoring will be driven more so by maritime instability, which will be hugely advantageous for the US. Both Russia and China get fucked the most so trying to stimulate nationalism to distract that both countries are emptying out as they both slowly collapse economically.

    No US politicians really get any credit. Insurance companies and demographics are bigger factors. As boring as that is.

    I will freely admit I know absolutely nothing on the subject. That said while I believe this isn't a good thing, its likely not the end of the world. I don't see Russian economy being a threat.

    "The EU will sign a contract on Tuesday to secure over 40 million doses of a preventative avian flu vaccine for 15 countries with the first shipments heading to Finland, EU officials said on Monday.
    The deal secures up to 665,000 doses from vaccine manufacturer CSL Seqirus and includes an option for a further 40 million vaccines for a maximum of four years."

    There isn't a fifty year agreement, for example, there isn't a signed agreement between the US and SA to only trade in USD, it was a gentlemen's agreement between the US and SA, nothing more.

    That being said, I have come to the understanding that this was planned by the USG, not Saudi Arabia. You read that right. In summary, we want to get the fuck out of the Middle East.

    The thought is that the USD has become too dominant and too highly valued, to the point that it is hurting the world economy, and if anything, it is overvalued and hurting US industry.

    Not saying I wholeheartedly agree with it, but I am telling you that this was the plan all along, to let SA start trading oil in other currencies on purpose as part of a long term economic and geopolitical strategy. I read a briefing on it, and I will summarize it here:

    1. The US has become a major producer of oil and natural gas, with a plan of reducing reliance on Middle Eastern oil
    2. The petrodollar agreement has tied the US to the Saudi regime and the geo-political risks involved with it
    3. Due to US energy independence, alliances are going to be pursued based upon mutual interests instead of oil dependency
    4. Due to the strength of the USD, US companies are at a distinct disadvantage in an increasingly global economy
    5. Provides more flexibility to the Federal Reserve in monetary policy
    6. Reduce the impact of the Middle East on US markets
    7. Reduced military expenditures. The US spends a significant amount of money per year on our presence in the Middle East
    8. Diversify global energy markets so that SA does not have as much impact on supply.
    Hardly any of that makes any sense to me. Do you believe it? Sounds like total bullshit to me honestly.

    Was wondering when our election year crisis would start popping up.

    Bill Gates: "The issue of food systems and how with climate change, a lot of farmers aren't able to grow their crops, which is a tragedy for them. We'll talk about using innovation to absolutely solve that problem."

    Globalist doublespeak translation: As a result of our deliberate war on agriculture, a lot of farmers aren't able to grow their crops, which is a blessing for us because it allows us to seize control of the global food supply under the guise of "saving the planet".

    This particular outbreak has been going on since 2022 and there was another large outbreak in 2020. Another one in the US in 2014. 2004. Sometimes they happen in election years. Sometimes they don't.

    But the only time the world shut down is when a novel virus spread around the world like wildfire with an alarming death rate.

    Yes but those outbreaks were in chickens, Birdflu can now somehow spread to humans and those untested vaccines are being bought, even before an controlled outbreak has even happend

    Animal viruses spread to humans. Basically every virus ever that infects humans has lept from an animal at some point. They mutate through spreading and replicating and sometimes those mutations make it so they can infect humans. It's happened since humans have existed.

    The vaccines aren't untested. Not only were they originally tested, they get "tested" every year during flu season. We have a process in place to quickly approve the seasonal flu vaccine because all that changes is the particular strain they are vaccinating against. We have stockpiles of several animal influenza viruses that could potentially leap to humans and it would just need to go through that seasonal process because it would, indeed, be a seasonal flu vaccine, no different except the strain it's vaccinating against. In this case, the stockpile is mostly for those who work closely with the animals, the elderly, and children. Then we have a plan in place to produce them if there is an outbreak amongst people.

    Luckily, we've never really needed to do it.

    "Sounds like bullshit" is a common response from those confronted with information that is completely over their head.

    P.S. Seen, I'm just funning you.

    EV, one of my cousins was bitten by a rabid fox and had to get the shots. She said it was a pretty stressful experience, especially for her husband and children but she made a full recovery. Never come in contact with foxes, skunks and bats!

    I had exposure to rabies twice in my life. Had the vaccine twice . 44 years in the veterinary business will facilitate that . Vaccine works.

    LA City Council members have removed "No U-Turn" traffic signs in a gay neighborhood.

    They say the signs were homophobic.

    No, this is not satire.
