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:
For just general FYI notices, use to “tips” pages. All the old ones remain for historical reference:
Three Weeks To The End Of This Crap
And the start of new crap…
As of now, it is just 3 weeks until the election of the US President (along with a load of congress and others) is nominally over. Due to many Democrat Party ruined States going to massive “mail in ballots” it may well be 3 months before we know who, if anyone, is the President.
I suspect that election night will turn into chaos as the non-answer dawns. Or, if Trump is elected and it’s clear he is POTUS even without the other States reporting: Expect the Globalists / China paid Communists & Socialists / Soros funded Color Revolution folks like BLM & Antifa and others to have a complete emotional explosion and destroy their home cities even more. OTOH, if Biden “wins” it will most likely be an incredible fraud, and expect all sorts of legal issues and media hysterics.
So, for the next 3 weeks we will have increasing tension, increasing “shit storms for effect”, and ever less sleep. Sigh.
Three Days to 3 Weeks to 3 Months for Brexit to really, finally, this time for sure! be done. Maybe.
We’ve got the EU doing their best to sell fear and do nothing in the hope they can get “Brexit in name only”, but it is dawning on them oh so slowly that a WTO exit would be fine for the UK. Boris has, supposedly, said something along the lines of ~”this week is it, we’re off”, but he is having last minute (for the what, 20th time now?) “talks” with the EU.
For God’s Sake, man, just leave already. Take your sovereignty and leave. Do NOT compromise your fishing territorial waters, your law making ability, your National Choice and Control on regulations, your ability to conduct free trade with the rest of the world. Get your self free. NOW. Please. Sign a free trade deal with the USA before the end of the year and get on with it.
The EU is NEVER going to be a decent negotiating partner (they have demonstrated this many times already). They are wedded to the Globalist Abuse Platform. JUST WALK AWAY. Once Germany realizes it’s not selling as many cars into the UK, and once the reality of “no fishing for you” has been absorbed into the French and Spanish governments, then they will be much more flexible in their “demands”.
What’s Going On?
Chinese Wuhan Covid Lockdowns Unconstitutional and Failing – Again
The W.H.O. has even come out and said the time for lockdowns is over. It is now killing far more than the disease. We can effectively treat Chinese Wuhan Covid, and mortality is lowest while Vitamin D is highest and that is Right Now end of summer and sun.
It’s time to just get back to life and move on.
I know. Short summary this time. But really, everything is on hold until the election happens. China and India and most of the rest of the Chinese neighbours are on the verge of war, but nobody will move until they know what the USA will become. Storms and such are causing lots of crop failures; but nothing will be stated as such until after the harvest season is done.
The whole world is just collectively marking time until the USA election is over and a Chinese Wuhan Covid vaccine is approve. Until that happens, it’s just circling the drain.
Companies are starting massive layoffs as the lockdowns exceed their ability to carry employees and no more bailout money is coming (thanks, Nancy… /sarc;) so we’ve had 5 figure layoffs in everything from Disney to other media to airlines and more. It’s the end game of the Democrat Party scorched earth plan to ruin the economy and blame it on Trump. But that blame redirection isn’t working. From riots to looting to burning city centers to forest fire arson: It has all happened in Democrat controlled cities and States. Similarly, the lockdowns leading to bankruptcy and layoffs. There’s a deep hatred for all things Democrat forming in the gut of Americans. Or at least those with a bit of clue.
In other news… it turns out that Democrats are about 80-90% scared of Covid and scared of going out to vote. Republicans are about 80-90% fine with going out, groups, voting in person.
Mail-in ballots have a MUCH higher rejection / error rate. Most of the mail-in ballots will be Democrats. Think about it… Recently California issued a plea to STOP disinfecting your mail in ballots as it smears the ink and the ballot is rejected. Fearful Democrats were alcohol washing them… Their push to promote mail-in ballots could very well cost Democrats the win just due to a few percentage higher rejection rate of predominantly Democrat voters ballots. Karma, it’s a thing ;-)
Let’s see. 3 Weeks. 21 Days. At 3 bottles a week, that’s 9 bottles. Call it $50 to $100 of “anaesthesia” budget. I think I can swing that. The bigger question is will it still be just 3 a week in 2 weeks…
