    "Black" Agnes Randolph, Countess of Dunbar and March, at the siege of Dunbar in 1338
    This attack took place during the conflict which arose when Edward Balliol, with English backing, attempted to seize the Scottish crown from David II. Patrick Dunbar was fighting in the far-off Scottish army when English forces besieged his home, the great castle of Dunbar in East Lothian. Patrick’s wife, the Lady Agnes, was left alone with only a retinue of servants and a few guards to meet the English siege, but she refused to surrender the fortress, by one account declaring that

    "Of Scotland's King I haud my house, I pay him meat and fee, And I will keep my gude auld house, while my house will keep me."

    Women occasionally commanded besieged mediaeval garrisons, for if the lord of a castle were away his wife might be left in charge; but Agnes’s is one of the few sieges which has been widely remembered. Though considered one of the ablest commanders of his day, Salisbury was obliged to lift his fruitless siege of Dunbar castle after nearly five months without success.

    Salisbury began the siege with a bombardment by catapults, sending huge rocks and lead shot against the ramparts of Dunbar. Lady Agnes responded by having her maids dress in their Sunday best; she then led them to the outer walls, where with their handkerchiefs they nonchalantly and slightingly dusted away the damage from the bombardment. She would also taunt the English from her walls and berate her garrison to make them fight harder.

    Montague next assaulted the castle with his battering ram. Agnes had a huge boulder, captured from an earlier attack, dropped over the walls which smashed the English assault machinery.

    Lady had swag

    not according to my understanding. I believe the CA legislature requires a "NOPE" majority to raise taxes, property taxes are somehow impossible to raise, and the ballot initiative allows the people to say SPEND MONEY ON THIS SHIT!!!!

    It requires a 2/3 supermajority in both houses of the state legislature to pass any tax increase.

    It only requires a simple majority to pass a tax increase via the referendum system.

    On top of that, it only requires a simple majority to pass an amendment to the California constitution via the referendum system. This is the only way to amend the California constitution.

    So if a tax break gets embedded in the state constitution via the referendum system (which has happened multiple times), then the only way to revoke that tax break is to pass another referendum.

    Oh my god George Zimmerman is reprehensible.


    Who is worse - George Zimmerman at a gun show or the people lavishing attention on George Zimmerman at a gun show?

    Apparently only 20 people went to see him, and he was originally planned to be on the show floor of the convention, but they moved him to a back office at the last minute.

    Googling around, I'm not sure where Zimmerman was. Some sites say he was at a gun show (when I think gun shows, I think convention halls filled with hundreds of people) and some sites say he was at a gun shop called The Arms Room.

    Speaking of finance, I'm reading a book and one of the author's claims is (paraphrased), that the way the Federal Reserve creates currency and introduces it into the economy is to issue it to banks as loans, and that this means that the amount of money in existence is necessarily smaller than the amount of debt.

    Can anyone with an understanding of monetary policy comment on this?

    Can anyone with an understanding of monetary policy comment on this?

    Well, as an empirical statement, it is true to say that "the amount of money in existence is smaller than the amount of debt."

    But this isn't really necessarily true, nor is it a direct effect of central banking. It can also be emergent simply from the nature of debt.

    Example: I start a business and I take out a $100k loan to cover startup costs. After a year, I'm operating in the black. I have $80k left in debt to the bank, $20k in my company bank account, $5k per week coming in as accounts receivables, and $4k per week going out as expenses. In this scenario, I carry $80-$84k in debt at any given time, $20-25k in cash at any given time, and my customers owe me up to $5k at any given time. Even if you take into account the amount of money paid from my initial capital loan to other entities (like suppliers), the total debt load in this system is higher than the total cash value of this system.

    Or more simply, if I loan you $1, and then you loan that $1 to Alice, and then Alice loans $1 to Bob, and then Bob loans $1 to Chris, then that single dollar bill has been instrumental in $4 worth of debt.

    The aggregate amount of debt held by all parties is higher than the aggregate amount of money held by all parties.
