I hate debt, but infrastructure is one of the best government investments that helps American workers and it helps Americans to be more efficient with transport of goods and services across the country.
Senate Republicans are pushing back against President Trump's $1 trillion infrastructure spending push, warning that it's too "rich" and would be a "heavy lift" for Congress
the US dollar is worthless
the US dollar is worthlessGood. Send your worthless US dollars to me, if you have any.
Think he won't be able to get this now that riots spread across the nation? We haven't had an investment in infrastructure in decades - this is about 10% of the current national debt. I think the last major bill was Reagan.
The country is bankrupt, the US dollar is worthless, may as well spend some money out of air on some useful infrastructure before people realize it is truly worthless.
FuckCCP89 saysthe US dollar is worthlessGood. Send your worthless US dollars to me, if you have any.I remember when the USSR collapsed on December 26, 1991
richwicks saysThe country is bankrupt, the US dollar is worthless, may as well spend some money out of air on some useful infrastructure before people realize it is truly worthless.US government owns an estimated $125 trillion in assets. Buildings, power authorities, but mostly land. US is not 'bankrupt'.
"Lookie at US debt!" has been rallying cry of Russian "patriots" for the best part of the last quarter of the century. Meanwhile Russia has no debt but literally 3rd of the population shits in hole in the ground instead of using indoor plumbing. Shocking but true.
The US national debt is exponentially growing - doubling every 8 years. There is nothing that can grow exponentially without a catastrophic collapse. Not population, not wealth, not volume, nothing. Nothing in nature can grow exponentially without a catastrophic collapse Nothing.
Malthusean Nonsense - look at the world population since 1700. Look at Copper or Pork Belly or 6502 Microchip Production. Shit, look at the industrial output of China in the 90s and 2000s. Or Steel Production in UK/US in the past 1850-1950.
Just wait until Starship. You don't want to be holding precious metals when the asteroid belt starts getting mined
Before 2060, I call Gold at less than $100/oz, and Platinum less than $300/oz in today's dollar adjusted prices.
We'll be orbiting a real great M-Class Asteroid very shortly.
It costs about $20,000 per KG to launch something into low earth orbit from the energy expenditures alone. It will never ever be economically viable to mine an asteroid. Star Trek is never going to happen, neither is Space 1999, The Expanse, or BattleStar Gallactica - neither is Moon Zero 2 for that matter.
Homeless living under the bridges and highway overpasses have no debts. Zero. Zilch. Nada.
Nope."For a SpaceX Falcon 9, the rocket used to access the ISS, the cost is just $2,720 per kilogram."https://theconversation.com/how-spacex-lowered-costs-and-reduced-barriers-to-space-112586#:~:text=For%20a%20SpaceX%20Falcon%209,is%20just%20%242%2C720%20per%20kilogram.
Believe what you wish.There's no longer real accounting anymore. I've had to go through and calculate the actual energy involved, including using different propellants. The very last person I trust, is Elon, PT Barnum, Musk. People praise him as some sort of genius. I look at him as another Elizabeth Holmes - but with government support.
