MMT and Bitcoin arose at roughly the same time (big picture), and for the same reason - they are both reactions to the results of a grand experiment in unbacked fiat, a late 20th century experiment.
2/ Satoshi saw the financial crisis, global debt growing at an unsustainable pace, and the misallocation of capital from “free” money and concluded we need “hard” money.
3/ MMT is an attempt to reframe the warning signs and crises as unimportant, to change the way we score the system and measure results. 200% debt to GDP ratio and negative nominal interest rates aren’t evidence of a failed experiment they say. Change the scoring system.

Just because a business entity has a well-formed and clearly stated strategy, that doesn’t mean that it is executing that strategy. 1
Just because the CEO and their immediate circle have a strategy, that doesn’t mean that the middle managers are clear on what that strategy really is, or what it means to their every day work. 2
Particularly in tech companies, the practitioners at the lowest rungs of the company make some of the most impactful, customer-facing decisions in the entire organization. Do those practitioners know what the strategy is? 3

1. I'm glad that PLOS had to address some of the issues with Littman's paper. It still doesn't sufficiently address the issues of a deliberately biased sample set, which failed to include supportive parents of trans youth, and parents from the general population. But...
2. That's not the big problem I have. The problem I have is that the damage has already been done, and it was absolutely done with malicious intent and pre-meditation.
3. It's known in media that whatever message gets out first becomes the conventional wisdom, even if the original information was a complete fabrication, and withdrawn entirely. See Andrew Wakefield's faked study on autism and vaccines

(Thread) The official start of Spring - the Spring/Vernal Equinox - is today, at 5:58 PM EDT. This marks the time when the day-to-night line, called the terminator, is perfectly vertical from pole to pole. #SpringEquinox #FirstDayOfSpring
The Vernal Equinox is also the day of the year when day and night are most nearly equal everywhere on earth.
There will be more daylight than nighttime each day now, until the Fall/Autumnal Equinox in September.
The fairly rare alignment of a #Supermoon and Spring Equinox happens tonight too. This will be the last #Supermoon of 2019. blogs.nasa.gov/Watch_the_Skie…

Rush is talking about some of the old Al Gore "inconvenient bullshit" where he showed fraudulent pictures of polar bears on tiny pieces of ice, as if they were going to drown from global warming. Then commercials came out with polar bears hugging people driving electric cars
That was like 12 years ago, and Gore and the climate change morons, claimed that polar bears were going extinct. Well a new book out shows research that in that time the polar bear population may have quadrupled.
And as Rush points out polar bears can actually swim for many miles without stopping. longest ever recorded was over 400 miles a polar bear swam. So in typical leftist fashion they showed a misleading, lying picture that took advantage of the lefts ignorance. As they always do

I was asked if I'd do a thread on how to use Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to write/revise novels, so, yes, I will! My dayjob works almost entirely in spreadsheets so it's the way my brain sorts information easily, which is one reason this works best for me.
So because I write romcoms (or books containing romcoms), I often structure my books at least lightly around Billy Mernit's romantic comedy structure. So I might list those major points in one column and then have the freedom to use as many rows listing things that happen.
I like this because the first column can either track or SUGGEST which page number things things should be happening by. This keeps me knowing "where" in the book I am and where I'm going to. Obviously I write the specifics in column C in my actual outline.

Politics

It really doesn’t matter who is draining the swamp, it just matters that it’s happening.

But someday, President #45 .@realDonaldTrump will be hailed as a hero. Being a career politician is not what we need running our country.

threadreaderapp.com/thread/1108407…
This country needs to sweep out the entire government of career politicians and get fresh blood in there, then pass an amendment to the Constitution that enforces term limits. And these limits need to be such that you can’t leap frog from position to position.
Term limits should be that, limited. Once your time is up, you’re out. And that is it. If you want back in, you have a to wait an interim period of at least 15 years. Long enough to keep you from networking and controlling who gets in.

Fun fact: Solyndra was the 1st firm to get a renewable loan because it was #1 on Bush DOE’s list. (Also: The loan portfolio is profitable.)
Screw it, let’s do this. Bush’s DOE ranked Solyndra #1 out of 143 applicants. Richard Branson’s fund ranked it #1 of 117 applicants. 2
Did you know Solyndra raised $1B in private capital? It was the toast of the Valley. Its tech was revolutionary. 3

#RINOS are the MOST CORRUPT Democrats of all! We all know what we are getting when a Democrat is elected. RINO's walk & talk like a Conservative to get elected, it's part of the RINO con. Once elected, they jockey for power, taking bribes, behind the scenes deals, kowtowing to
2) the lobbyists & the Dems. The true & just, Conservatives can never rely on a RINO's actions or words. RINO's flip on their Republican base at any time, sowing discord with many, getting very wealthy in the process. They give lip-service to those who elected them as they make
3) deals in the dark. Unfortunately, they are never really held accountable for their actions. Some are re-elected for decades as no one will take a stand & run against them. Many of them make a run for President, touting their ability to work across the aisle when the truth is,
