The U.S. Quarter Shortage

There are many things that Congress does or does not do that anger most of us Americans regardless of our political affiliation.

Failure to pay us the long-promised stimulus checks is but one of those angered emotions at a time many Americans are suffering financially.

President Trump offered to sign a standalone stimulus check to speed the delivery to all Americans qualifying for the $1,200 stimulus and additional money for dependents weeks ago.

No one in Congress seemed to be motivated to do just that, create a standalone stimulus check bill that would deliver many hurting Americans relief.

Instead political bickering and strongarming continued from both sides and everywhere in the middle. The media added fuel to the flames of blame while accusing opposition sides and blaming whoever is in their path of political rejection.

Nothing has been accomplished and WE THE PEOPLE have continued to suffer from our poorly performing elected officials.

The U.S. quarter shortage seems to hold the same fate as the stimulus check, no resolution to a pressing and growing problem and concern across America.

The stores are out of quarters and refuse to give up their merger supply. Even to their most loyal customers. The banks will not provide quarters for customer use in rolls. The banks and stores blame the armored car business. The armored car business is but the messenger, the carrier, not the producer of U.S. coins. The U.S. Mint is.

The Covid-19 virus is the fundamental basic blame for the quarter shortages. Likewise, as it is with every dysfunctional, mismanaged company in the world that uses Covid-19 virus for blaming its underperforming business and inability to manage, the U.S. Mint fails to perform with skilled management.  

A good manager will improvise and find ways to adjust to any change, any threat to its business. A great manager will improve on what good managers do and create systems that bring progress for their company no matter what the threat or negative force is.

Unfortunately, when the government—politicians and bureaucratic powers—with zero risks or investment in the business, and most often no business experience, force business to close, to operate under restricted rules, to reduce their normal business hours or to interfere in any way, even the best business managers cannot successfully lead or succeed.

The U.S. Mint is a government operation, not a private business.

David J. Ryder is the current director of the U.S. Mint.

Ryder is a holdover from the days of George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton. He is not someone who should be in the Trump administration although Trump nominated Ryder in 2017 and he was confirmed in March of 2018.

Ryder needs to be replaced, removed entirely from the U.S. Mint and from the United States Department of Treasury and the United States Department of Commerce.

To allow a coin shortage for any reason is valid proof of David J. Ryder’s inability to manage under adverse conditions.

Ryder may very well be tied to Deep State operatives due to his linage and history.

George H. W. Bush and his family, including George W. Bush and Jeb Bush, have made it known publicly they were anti-Trump disgruntled politicians. They added fuel to and led the Never-Trump movement. Anyone connected to the Bush dynasty should never be in the Trump administration as it is not in the best interest of Americans, no matter what political affiliation that American has. We all suffer the blows from failed government.

The poor suffer the worst. They suffer from the U.S. Mint quarter shortage and they suffer from the failure of government to deliver their second stimulus check so they can deal with the hardship they endure.

No one wants to address the problem other people created.

Certainly, the powers in Congress, inept and incapable of even tying their own shoes cannot solve such an easy problem to solve.

We the American People, should call upon our individual Congressional representatives, in Congress, both in the House and the Senate and demand they get off their lazy butts and stop acting like schoolyard bullies and do their job. The job they were sent to Washington for, to represent their constituents, the American people of their district.

A quarter shortage is caused by none other than the U.S. Government, and that does not blame any political party but holds BOTH parties responsible.

People need their quarters to do laundry, paying cash due to lack of credit, paying parking meters, to purchase items from vending machines, to pay bus fare and other necessities.

Congress do your job or get the hell out of Washington and go to some freak show where you would perform best. You certainly are not fit for Congressional representation of your constituency. Collectively, you are non-performers and that does not work for America.

Stop the nonsense. Get the $1,200 stimulus checks in the mail and the U.S. quarters readily available to anyone who needs them.

Should the Government Do As Mark Zuckerberg Asks, Help Control Internet Content?

It is odd that Mark Zuckerberg has requested the government to have oversight over the Internet.

The government has always had oversight over the Internet, it just has not used its lawful powers usefully or correctly. The primary reason for that lack of oversight is from the inept public officials elected to Congress. These elected official fail because they are either actors and entertainers grandstanding with no real interest in enacting laws like legislators should and only present themselves in TV Reality-like shows called News pretending to be representative of the people and actually being of no legal use due to lack of representation and legislative enactments. Or, on the other side of the aisle, they have been involved in nonstop espionage, sabotage, Deep State conspiracy and political fighting that has gained zero use to the people. Their pugnacious behavior has only continuously divided our nation. But, Zuckerberg calls for Social Media Reform, not just for Facebook, but across the social media platforms.

I think that Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) and Jack Dorsey (Twitter), just to name two, are war criminals. I hold both Zuckerberg and Dorsey, their partners, managers and business associates responsible for the death of tens of thousands of innocent men, women and children, including babies who died (actually who were slaughtered or exterminated) because of their social media platforms’ tolerance, promoting, aiding and abetting and directly enhancing the rise of Daesh (ISIS) and other international terrorists. That is a historical fact which plenty of evidence can be found to support my claims.  I began protesting Zuckerberg’s and Dorsey’s as well as other social media lord’s participation in those attacks as early as June of 2014 when Daesh was just coming to surface on the international stage. Some of my writing to attest to those statements can be found in some of the posts below on this very website.

This post is not about the war crimes of Mark Zuckerberg or Jack Dorsey. That will come in another post or essay, or a series of them, in my Blogs & eBook collections. I believe, in time, one of the nations involved in the Daesh terrorism or the United Nations will indeed begin investigations and bring war crimes tribunals against the billionaire tyrants who rose to war-crime statue because of their inhumane behavior that FAILED TO REGULATE OR BAN HATE CRIMES AND POLITICAL, SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC AS WELL AS HUMAN RIGHTS AGENDA BY INTERNATIONAL TERRORIST AND CRIMINALS INCLUDING PARTICULARLY ISLAMIC MUSLIMS

But no one wanted to offend the Muslims, so tens of thousands of innocent men, women, and children including babies were slaughtered. Now, Zuckerberg calls for government oversight. I agree with him. But I also agree he (and Jack Dorsey and Company) should be held responsible for his own involvement in election tampering, hate crime activities and other wrongdoings including massive privacy invasions.

Just download an archive of your Facebook content and you will find low and behold Zuckerberg and Company has possession of your telephone contacts. Every name, every number in your telephone contact list Zuckerberg has possession of. So does who knows whatever third-party Facebook and company sold their private numbers too.

Jack Dorsey and Company offers a content archive download, too. But it is bogus. FAKE. It does not work. Just like the appeal process when Twitter locks out a user because their PINK HAIRS claimed the user used hateful content. The appeals go unread or ignored with no responses. Until the user gets on his knees and pleads mercy and saying UNCLE to the tyrant billionaire’s Pink Hairs the user’s account will remain to be locked out–innocent or guilty. And many of guilty ones will continue their hate because Dorsey and Company or Zuckerberg and Company happen to give them preference.

So, yes, we need oversight on social media. Government oversight or third parties. But who is to say even they won’t discriminate unfairly? We need oversight beginning with Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, and the rest of Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, Google, YouTube, and other tech companies and social media. And we need oversight of public officials who express hate and incite hate and violence. Will we every see it? I doubt it. Maxine Waters is not only alive and well but prospering in Congress without a political scratch on her, although the ethics rules of Congress state she could and should have been expelled. The same applies to many other public officials that have never been brought to justice. Think Lois Lerner. Her partner in crime is now Chairman of the Government Oversight Committee, imagine that.

I don’t agree much on anything either Mark Zuckerberg or Jack Dorsey say or do. I do agree with at least taking a look at the list of things he mentions below and bringing them to an open forum for discussion. But I also agree with the majority of Americans and probably world citizens of all political, social, economic and religious ideologies and convictions that there needs to be oversight of the tech and social media tyrant billionaires themselves and a regulation to bring a fair and balance equality for and of all people. Muslims and blacks should not be given preference because someone is afraid of offending them. Nor should whites be given special privilege. Nor should an existing generation be blamed for something a former generation committed.

We need to pull our heads out of the sand and make a better world for all of us and future generations.

We have a lot of nonsense floating around in our society, at home and abroad. We need good leaders to sift through that nonsense and bring us equal justice for all while restoring peace and calm and unity. Is anyone up to the job?

Add Your Two Cents
What do you think should happen? Should there be a government oversight in social media? Or even on the Internet? If so who should be regulated and what should the penalties for violation be? Who should do the regulating and what defense or appeal should a person who believes they are innocent have? Should websites be able to lock people out denying them access to their own material, even if they do lock out the user from public appearance? What about freedom of speech? Where are the lines drawn to protect freedom of speech and the First Amendment?

What does Mark Zuckerberg want?

In brief, Mr. Zuckerberg calls for the following things:

* Common rules that all social media sites need to adhere to, enforced by third-party bodies, to control the spread of harmful content

* All major tech companies to release a transparency report every three months, to put it on a par with financial reporting

* Stronger laws around the world to protect the integrity of elections, with common standards for all websites to identify political actors

* Laws that not only apply to candidates and elections, but also other “divisive political issues”, and for laws to apply outside of official campaign periods

* New industry-wide standards to control how political campaigns use data to target voters online

* More countries to adopt privacy laws like the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force last year

* A “common global framework” that means these laws are all standardized globally, rather than being substantially different from country to country

* Clear rules about who’s responsible for protecting people’s data when they move it from one service to another
