  • quantitative easing

    Quantitative easing is an unconventional monetary policy in which a central bank purchases government securities or other securities from the market in order to lower interest rates and increase the money supply. Quantitative easing increases the money supply by flooding financial institutions with capital in an effort to promote increased lending and liquidity. Quantitative easing is considered when short-term interest rates are at or approaching zero, and does not involve the printing of new banknotes.
    Imagine you have 20 pieces of paper. This Official Guy® comes along and offers you 83 pieces of paper for your 20 pieces of paper. Now if those 20 pieces of paper are five dollar bills, and those 83 pieces of paper are one dollar bills you have a problem.

    More paper has been added to the system without any more value. In fact, you have lost value because of the transaction costs and because that money is selectively being channeled to "the appropriate channels”.

    quarter day

    Local dates & times

    sun wheel
    The day when one of the four annual solar events takes place.

    Imagine the year as a wheel. Draw a line from the top to the bottom and another line from side to side. That divides the year into quarters.

    Where the lines cross the circle, each point is a solar festival and the middle of a season. The top point is the winter solstice or midwinter. The point to the right is the vernal equinox or the middle of spring. The bottom point is the summer solstice or midsummer. The point on the left is the autumnal equinox or middle of autumn.

    On my WebTree path, a solar festival begins at sunrise of the the day before the actual solar event and lasts until sunrise the day after. That makes it the traditional three days.

    Queen of Hearts syndrome

    Sentence first — verdict afterwards.
    — The Queen of Hearts, Alice In Wonderland

    Playing with the queen of hearts
    Knowing it ain't really smart
    The joker ain't the only fool
    Who'll do anything for you
    —Juice Newton, Queen of Hearts
    Some folks and I decided to call it the Queen of Hearts syndrome after the line in Alice in Wonderland. A few rounds later (I stuck with lime water), someone remembered the Juice Newton song and there was off-key singing.

    The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that this is the SJW goal, especially when it comes to rape accusations.

    Sentence first – verdict later.

    There's no reason or reprieve or review allowed. The accusation is the conviction. And if you dare suggest that the accuser is anything other than a victim saint, then you must be punished severely.
