This is another of the W.O.O.D. series of semi-regular
Weekly Occasional Open Discussions.
(i.e. if I forget and skip one, no big)
Immediate prior one here:
and remains open for threads running there
(at least until the ‘several month’ auto-close of comments on stale threads).
Canonical list of old ones here:
So use “Tips” for “Oooh, look at the interesting ponder thing!”
and “W.O.O.D” for “Did you see what just happened?! What did you think about it?”
What’s Going On?
We’ve got the ongoing saga of the Russia Nothing Burger. Indictments of no-names for being annoying in process.
We’ve got the major USA Media shouting that this means any day now they get Trump’s Scalp.
Meanwhile the stock market came back up, and the rest of world is busy making money.
The EU continues to try to shake down Britain on the way out the door. The British government continues to allow their pockets to be searched (maybe it feels good when they squeeze…) The British People are wondering why they don’t just leave and be done. The rest of the world is lined up ready for business, if only the British Government would look their way instead of at the hand in their pants from the EU. Sigh.
Then there’s the 7.x quake in Mexico, some more around the world, and various volcanoes getting grumbly. Geologic activity seems on the uptick for now.
Meanwhile a school shooting in Florida has everyone on The Left panting over guns, while the FBI failed to act on the suspect even after he was pointed out to them; they were too busy eating Nothing Burgers and fretting over Trump. When will we learn that it’s the nutbar behind the gun that’s the problem. Think that same guy would be unable to tip a 5 gallon pail of gasoline into a classroom and toss a highway flare? Crazy people are not stupid. At least not all the time nor all of them.
Meanwhile we’ve had Frozen Europe, snow in African deserts, South America and Australia / New Zealand with abnormally cold summers, and soon Asia to get more froze (as the Mongolians try desperately to keep their cattle alive). Yet it was warm in California and Arizona, so must be “The Hottest Year Ever!!! ™“. /sarc;
Sometimes I think the world is crazy, other times I’m sure…
