The Dow Jones Dropped by 666 - Omen of Things to Come? [Copy link] 中文

What a coincidence.  On November 5, 2008, the day after Obama won the presidential election, the winning Lotto 3 number in Illinois was "666".  And now on February 2, 2018, 3 days after Trump's first SOTU speech, the Dow dropped "666" points.  If winning numbers are bad, are losing numbers therefore good, or vice versa?  Or, are these just coincidences?  Simply because we cannot imagine any connection between these numbers and the presidential events noted above, does not necessarily prove them to be coincidences.  For one, either or both of these numbers can be manipulated by people who have the connections and the power to use these connections.  If so, such coincidences are revealed as covert advertisements by special interests to try to convince us to be ready to accept whatever fate they want to dish out to us.  What may be harmful about such manipulations is that they surreptitiously assign the public to the role of passive, helpless observers of predetermined events, which is paralyzes their will.  The truth is that the public has very much a say in how their future is going to be shaped, and the key point is the fact that now is the time for all men and women of good will to do good, not for themselves alone, but for others as well, in short to shape their future together, and not be resigned to a future decreed by the powers that be on them.  As proof of this event not meeting the standards of prophetic precision, the actual drop in the Dow was 665.75, and not really, 666.

Trump should not forget that one of the reasons he was elected President by the people is because he promised them peace, not war, and so far, he has kept his promise, though events are overtaking him that may make him break his promise, to everyone's sorrow.

No, it is not 666, and the world is not doomed to self-destruct.  There is always time to follow the inner voice of wisdom and of peace.  But it takes courage, immense courage, to take the first step in the right direction.

Trump wasn't elected by the people as you naively stated in your post.
He had 3,000,000 less votes than his rival.
He was elected the the electoral college. An ancient part of an ancient constitution.

What is the 666 thing? Something from some ancient religion still followed by gullible people in the west?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Trump's foreign policy is no different from Obama's except in . . . well, nothing.  The public should have caught on to this over the course of one year of Trumpism.  But, it has not.  

Trump's feeble support for the Nunes memo shows he is not serious about what his loyal supporters believe to be basic constitutional issues surrounding his Presidency, that he remain the true chief executive of the government.  Well, "ah, it is shameful . . . shameful . . . shameful, ah . . . shameful."  No wonder Nunes has shut up, seemingly ashamed of what he has done.

The Fed is raising interest rates to counter the rise in employment and wages, which has been equated with inflation of the bad kind, never mind that Yellen had been thumping for a 2-3% inflation as previously championed by Bernanke, all the while.  Now that inflation is arriving, why is the Fed raising interest rates to bring it down?  The difference is that this inflation is fueled by rising income, and the other inflation, by rising investment bubbles belonging to the 1%.  The latter, is the "good" inflation, and the former, "bad".

The powers that be have given permissions to trade in cryptocurrencies in futures and options exchanges that they regulate, a clear sign they want cryptocurrencies to replace the sovereign currencies still under some kind of monitoring by the government and the people who elect its officials.  Crytocurrency is regulated by those who are not answerable to any government or to any nation.  It is regulated.  But by unknown, and unelected, guys.  Absolute power over the medium of exchange and store of value.  And yet, get used to it guys, $500 million dollars of such cryptogarbage can be stole by hackers, which their almighty servers are "duty bound" to protect in their claims of these stolen goods as theirs. Thievery is rewarded with wealth and legitimacy.  Game of Thieves.
