Doomer porn to start your day..........We have a pandemic, political chaos, social protests and riots, severe economic disruption, unprecedented wild fires induced by climate change. A category 5 hurricane on the east coast, a long overdue major earthquake on the San Andreas fault and the Yellowstone Caldera blowing would round out things nicely for 2020.

Defilement and general degradation of science has as much to do with politics or political correctness as with mediocrity and lack of competence of recent graduates who are then becoming researchers.
Stupidity of current graduates is breathtaking.
While helping with recruitment to my friend's company I was interviewing chemistry graduates unable to write formula of acetone, having problems to write an equation of oxidation of sulfur to sulfuric acid and first time hearing about something known as potassium permanganate.
Current brightest lots would struggle to complete a course 30 years ago, current average lots are plain stupid and some graduates are below level required by secondary school 30 years ago.

I am an environmentalism especially interested in renewables and permaculture. I am seeing all the sites I go to being hijacked by these delusions. Now woke is environmental and cancel how you deal with the environment. Academia is dumbing down achievement parameters and excluding freedom of speech under the guide of free speech protection. Conservatives are part of a healthy dialogue. It is now culturally illegal to be openly conservative on many campuses. The new policy is don’t ask and don’t tell and if you are discovered you are rooted out. Liberalism and conservative must have a healthy relationship or just this situation gets out of hand. Checks and balances of healthy debate. Cancel is not healthy.

Who knows, maybe a real objection is just to *design* it all in the way to fail?
Maybe it is recognized that stupid people won't be able to harm environment for much longer, so they are educated that way.
If so then designers might face a nasty surprise.
After all people from Easter Island who have decimated everything still understood workings of Nature better than most of current graduates and they did what they did.
Wokism is a religion without compassion. Traditional religion may have a flawed dogma but it is not all bad. Some of the best community is found in these religions. They have been time tested for strength.

Religions in the past were designed by brightest thinkers who were also charismatic leaders.
But woke is different.
It is religion born out of mediocrity of the mob and assembled on social media.

Trump’s plans for the rest of 2020, probably:

Trick Modi into helping the US attack China by promising India that after China has collapsed that India will take its place… So Modi sacrifices a bunch of soldiers in the LAC and intentionally pokes China to defend itself, thereby starting a regional war. This gives Uncle Sam the pretext it needs to ramp up even more heavily in the SCS, and then Amerikkka does a false flag event in the SCS to further escalate, allowing it to declare war on China, and that is when Tiawan takes the oppurunity to declare independence. Now its three against one and China has to content with India on its west, SCS situation and a rogue Tiawan situation… at this precise moment Trump kicks China out of SWIFT, chokes China of all processor chips and semiconductors, and then release a far more deadly virus (compared to COVID) in the heartland of China, along with mininuking the Three Gorges Dam by targeting it with satellite from space, and a high level EMP to wipe out China’s electric grid while gettings it vassals (Korea, Japan, Phillipines, etc etc) to cut China’s underground sea cables, thereby effectively severing it from the communication/internet of the outside world… when China is down, blind, deaf and scrambling is when the US does a strategic nuclear first strike to decapitate the CCP before it has chance to retailate with its own nukes…

Given Trump’s actions so far in 2020, I fully expect the rest of 2020 to play out like this….

Chinese government if you are reading this, when it doubt, better to use the DF-41 while you still can… if Amerikkka wants to continue to do scorched earth, and lose lose, lets get it over with…

"Here's why ‘Frankenstein’ Trump will probably win in November, and the aloof global elites will only have themselves to blame"
https://www.rt.com/op-ed/500461-franken ... ction-win/

"In any event, the fact that Trump still has a good chance of being re-elected says a great deal more about the ideological blindness and political ineptitude of Biden and the Democratic Party than it does about Trump."

This article written by an Australian spells pretty much where I stand regarding the US election and why Trump still has a chance, IMO.

What is it about wokesters and the death threats!!

“Petition To Prosecute Pelosi Draws Thousands Of Signatures”
https://summit.news/2020/09/11/petition ... ignatures/

“A petition to prosecute Nancy Pelosi for violating Covid-19 regulations by visiting a hair salon in San Fransisco has attracted thousands of signatures in just 24 hours… The petition, addressed to SF Police Chief William Scot, states: Laws aren’t just for the “little people.” Not only did Nancy Pelosi knowingly violate health ordinances, but just destroyed a business because she couldn’t take a ounce of responsibility. The salon owner gets death threats, while Pelosi has paid ZERO price for her hypocrisy. At a very minimum, Nancy Pelosi must be prosecuted by San Francisco for her flaunting of COVID regulations. Now!”

Conman v. Senile Man - who might win?

Add BLM/Antifa which scared shit out of white (and many black) Americans, even of many liberals.
Add COVID resistant Pelosi and further developments - plain farce.
Democrats will lose Electoral College but they won't concede.

In leftist states like California, Oregon or Washington an insurrection against Trump and civil war is likely.
Finally interesting times (TM) are coming to America.

Those other countries understand the difference between a man and a woman.

America has trouble with male and female and their proper roles. How long can you last, when you can't get that right?

How can you have stable and functional families, the basic unit of any society?

There are women fighting for men who want to be women, to be treated as women.
Laws are being considered to allow men to go to into women's bathrooms, if the man calls himself a woman.
Further, under proposed law, men can rape children, if the child consents. How does a child consent?

America has lost its DAMN mind.

The USA will have enough trouble trying to keep its own citizens in check, let alone starting another pointless, stupid war.

The US military is already complaining that there aren't enough qualified young people to fill all the special forces roles available.

I don't know what this country will look like, but it will be nothing like the last 30 years (Baby Boomer Rule) after 2025.

What about seeding clouds to avert hurricane, clamping St Andreas fault to stabilize it, fitting a big stopcock or a plunger down the throat of Yellowstone, so it cannot erupt, making vaccine by next weekend to stop pandemic and catching all CO2 to plastic bags, printing $5 quadrillions to solve economic troubles for good and building 2 White Houses, so both right and left could have their own president? :-D
Why not to make American Dream BIG? :-D

This tells us two things about the Democratic party, one is they are conceding the elections looks lost and the other is admitting they will contest it. What happened to an election decided by the people. We now have elections decided in the courts and with lawyers. That will not end well and it is terrible a minority of elites have decided to grab power however.


“POLITICSReport: Biden Lawyers Up In Preparation For “Extended Legal Battle” Election”
https://summit.news/2020/09/15/report-b ... -election/

“The New York Times is reporting that Joe Biden has hired hundreds of lawyers, including two former solicitor generals, and has created an entire legal division to fight an extended battle after the election. The report notes that Bob Bauer, a former White House Counsel under Obama will help oversee the operation, with Donald Verrilli Jr. and Walter Dellinger, the two former solicitors general, heading up Biden’s “special litigation”… The move plays into the Democratic narrative that Biden will win the election over a long drawn out period, and that President Trump will try to claim a quick victory and even refuse to leave the White House. The narrative has been pushed hard by the likes of the Clintons, who have repeatedly urged Biden not to concede defeat under any circumstances.”

Isn't that always the question 'the election decided by the people'? Gore might have won in 2000 if not for those hanging chards. I'm sure the DOJ will be doing their best to insure that Trump wins if there is any contesting to do and the Dem's should be ready for that eventuality.

Hopefully, it is more than one state that determines the election outcome so contesting it will be impossible for either side.

I really expect that a lot of votes won't be counted (again) and that will be the crux of the contest if that eventuality arises.

They were doing that for quite a while by buying US treasuries but it didn't work well for them so they stopped.
UBI provided that way was simply being defrauded by western kleptocracies.
