Sultan Knish - With blood on their hands.
Real life villains are closer to Richard III than Lady Macbeth, offering to trade their stolen kingdom for a horse to the very end, rather than seeking some intangible repentance in a fit of remorse. They are more likely to ask what difference it makes; the solipsistic query of the sociopath to whom the feelings of others are abstract things.Benghazi simply proves that the US government is corrupt. All of it. Naturally, people will not know, or if they do know, care, because the televitz is on.
I fully expect a false flag soon to cover up Benghazi and the IRS scandal.
Stares at the World - Your democracy is an illusion.
The Economic Collapse - The price of copper and 11 other recession indicators that are flashing red.
Vox Popoli - Health Evaders and the B Ark.
Honestly, I don't see how this whole creaky system is going to survive much longer. History shows that there is a lot of ruin in a nation, but at this rate, the entire business activity of the USA is soon going to be computers trading stocks with other computers and people filling out forms for the IRS and other government agencies.The Real Singapore - I brought my girlfriend to Mustafa Centre to convince her not to have an expensive wedding.
Welcome to the B Ark economy.
"My girlfriend wants the same lavish wedding as it's a 'once in a lifetime', 5 star hotel blah blah blah.My money is on her dumping this fellow and moving onto a richer guy that she "deserves". And to be frank, it would be better for this guy if she did just that.
"So one day, I happened to be at Mustafa Centre.
"I brought her to the electronics department and started showing her the prices of basic necessities like the washing machine, refrigerator, television and vacuum cleaner.
"I told her: Look, all these cost close to $1k each. Why waste money on a stupid wedding, only to please other people? Got flat already but no basic necessities how? Wash clothes by hand? (she cringed when she heard this)
"Immediately her perspective changed."
Ice Age Now - The new mini ice age is upon us.
Piers Corbyn agrees: the mini ice age has started.I'm more with Tex Arcane when he says that we're not just headed for a Maunder Minimum, but a Grand Minima. Time will tell.
In 2000, they warned us about runaway global warming.
They told us that 2010 would be the end of snow in the U.K.
Instead, the world got colder
So now they say warm is cold.
Wrap up well, folks.
Alternative Right - The IQ of revolutions.
Considering the seriousness of the existential threat, White America should be rising up in revolution, yet it isn’t. This proves that the 100 point mark on the IQ continuum, which we can call semi-intelligence, is something of a passivity 'sweet spot.' There are two elements to this:
- A semi-intelligent population is rather adept at deceiving itself. It has enough smarts to construct elaborate and plausible explanations that miss the point and prognostications that defer the moment of truth. It melds enough inventiveness and gullibility together to make continuous denial relatively easy.
- A semi-intelligent population is also smart enough to work around and ameliorate the negative effects of serious flaws in the socio-political fabric. This is what is happening in America, as the intelligent, frugal, and hard-working portion of the population take up the load of the increasingly large and dysfunctional underclass. In a lower IQ society, this balancing act would already be breaking down.Revolutions have many factors, but a lot of these other factors are in fact tied to IQ. IQ is therefore one of the most important factors leading to revolution. The question then arises of where is the optimum revolutionary IQ level at which a flawed state can be expected to undergo a much needed revolution.
