    Nope, but it does include grilled cheese sandwiches.

    I can show you an army of old Wisconsin ladies who have more than seven days worth of food stowed away in their pantries and basements in canning jars alone. Only time any of them get to court is for their own guardianship hearing.

    Which proves that guardianships are the design of jackbooted fascists.

    This reaffirms my having him on ignore. The string of thought in his post reminds me of writing 15 pages about how humans are the AIDS of planet Earth while on acid. But i really wish I had saved that bit

    It finally makes sense.

Could the Cold War arms race have been a "cry wolf" setup so that another country can use their arsenal "under the radar"?

    Prepping is just another turn on the old "End Times" wheel. There are always people so self-absorbed they refuse to believe the world can continue on after they, God's most special snowflake, die.

    Kepler with Flaggy: elites act in their own interests

    I'd say our area of intersection is pretty uncontroversial.
    Everyone acts in their own interests not just elites.

    You are right that there is a ruling class. You are right that they dominate economic and political institutions. But a nuclear confrontation is THE LAST thing they would want. As long as they fight their wars conventionally it's only our kids and our taxes that are affected. Nukes actually damage them.

    Ah, gotcha.

    They wouldn't be herpa-derp, because Winnie was nothing if not utterly dismissive of the gorillas ("the greatest argument against democracy is a conversation with the average voter"). My question would be, had Churchill read Hitler's book when he was making those speeches? If he hadn't then I'll take the really untenable position and say he was alarmist -- just because you turn out to be right doesn't mean you knew what you were talking about. But my understanding of Mein Kampf is that the whole program's right there in black and white, right down to "promise western liberals anything -- they're decadent and lying to them is a cost-effective way of getting what you want," so if Churchill actually cited the Nazis' own statements then he gets credit for prescience rather than luck.

    Off topic: I saw a corporate email today announcing the promotion of a guy named "M. Kampf." Gotta be rough to go through life with that name -- thanks a lot, Mom and Dad.
