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?
There’s two big events this coming week or two.
1) The USA Mid Term election will be counted up on Tuesday, November 6th. Voting started some time ago, and early indications are for a record turnout. In the balance hangs control of the House, and with that impeachment of Trump on some “trumped up” charge.
2) The Invading Mob from Central America has begun to arrive at the border (for early elements who road trucks more). There will be an increasing ramp up of hostilities as the U.S. Military gets their POTUS Commander In Chief Executive Order. I expect it will be martial law at the border and The Left pulling out all stops on the Street Theatre violence.
It will be a hinge point of history in a couple of ways. Interesting times.
