I was a Submarine Sonar Tech. In the Navy for 5 years and now I'm working on a bachelors degree. Not really sure what's supposed to go here. Yahoo Answers is different than when I started, but at least it let me change my profile name.

My reading speed never really increased from middle school to high-school.
Supposedly, my comprehension was college level between grade school and middle-school after which I have no reading specific tests.
Now I'm in college, so I'm just assuming my comrehension hasn't gone down. The only other test I can presently cite is that I received a 92 out of 99 percentile on the ASVAB, before the Navy.
I'm just curious, because I've always thought speed and comprehension would positively related rather than inverse. the scores could have always been a fluke.2 AnswersPrimary & Secondary Education4 years ago

Inflation borrows from wealth at the same rate it steals from wages.1 AnswerEconomics4 years ago
Is the U.S. already a Socialist Republic, & we're just the Lumpenproletariat of a silent revolution waged by banks & government?
Government planned inflation more than halves the value of Minimum Wage Labor, Middle Class Wealth, GDP per capita about every 24 years.
The only people guaranteed a prosperous salary by this practice are those collecting loan interest, and the government officials who are given a salary well in excess of GDP per Capita.Other - Social Science5 years ago

Like how Primaries, Caucuses, Super-delegates, and Contested/Brokered Convention all do or can play a part in Democrat & Republican nominations.
I know there are Libertarian Primary ballots, because I was able to use one in my states Open Primary. I was later unable to find any data about Libertarian Primary/Caucus #'s, which leads right back to why I'm asking the above question.

How can socialism ever work, if wealth is created by the individuals who work for less than the worth of their finished product?
products of my think like a socialist exercise:
It makes no sense for a government official or employee to make greater than the GDP per capita, since they're being paid with tax dollars.
The only way to drive up the GDP would be to promote citizen investment, and make a tax code that favored everyone making GDP per capita or greater.7 AnswersPolitics5 years ago
What ways or practices can one use to establish or re-establish discipline & focus in everyday life?
Examples and whatever I thought was worth mentioning:
1) I need to put myself in a set daily/weekly schedule
2) want to read more(personal; outside of school, separate from things like news or personal research).
3) Work out(body/brain health, despise dieting conceptually and why not?).
4) meditate(I do this once a week with a goup when school's in, and it seems to help.
5) limit(not rely on) caffeine, or similar energy/focus based supplements.
#1 is/was an end goal, but I've realized now that it's also very much so a first step and requirement. I used to stay up late to accomplish things; this practice almost always breaks my schedule or sets it to be broken by normal workday constraints. Aside from homework(formerly) and when I worked night shift this has become increasingly prone to inefficiency. This practic
#5 is he primary underlying reason why I want to work on this. I enjoy coffee and independently of that can take prescribed pharmaceuticals for focus, but both seemed to have become an ultimately degenerate substitute for good discipline in this last semester.
#'s 2&4 are less important independent of each other, but are part of a greater goal to take in less media(TV/movies/social media). At the very least do so finitely(no/less binges)and only with purpose/plan; no mindlessly scrolling facebook on my phone and if watching a movie/show, it should be a deliberate desire to do so rather than already being on the couch and checking Netflix.1 AnswerMen's Health5 years ago

We've been too far spread for too long, with seemingly no positive outcome. In any case Democrats seem to have proved that they can't fully back out of a territory in about 8 years, so it's self-sustaining anyway.
The best way to stand out seems to admit that we have an internal threat, take care of ourselves, and sell weapons to our allies.6 AnswersPolitics5 years ago
Possible gun bans loosening of carry restrictions are in the news again, what aren't we all supposed to be paying attention to?
Now that Gay marriage can't be debated anymore, the Government & media are limited on distractions.
There must be a reason they pulled the Pro/Anti gun debate trump card.
It could just be terrorist attack plus election time frenzy, but I don't believe in coincidence.2 AnswersPolitics5 years ago
