(Source: Economic Collapse Blog) – Well, the Nasdaq finally did it. It has climbed all the way back to where it was at the peak of the dotcom bubble. Back in March 2000, the Nasdaq set an all-time record high of 5,048.62. On Thursday, after all these years, that all-time record was finally eclipsed.

In a particularly spectacular display of corporate delusion, John Deere—the world’s largest agricultural machinery maker —told the Copyright Office that farmers don’t own their tractors.

WEB Notes: Of course they will hand out the vaccines they always do. The unfortunate things is peoples education concerning the topic of vaccines has been diminished. Schools and employers are now telling their people a vaccine is the best way to keep from getting sick. What an outrageous lie. The best way to keep from getting sick starts with your health, what you eat, how much water you drink the sun on your skin and keeping clean. Not injecting a foreign substance into your body.
