ok maybe not as brilliant as i had hoped but here's a theory.

immigration issues will be solved by 2060's due to lowering fertility rates in the world as 2nd tier countries develop. latin americas fertility rate has long been declining and is at replacement rate and will continue to decline further. by 2050 the majority of the worlds countries will have a negative fertility rate and be developed even more than now. a good example is mexico. mexico was a country with a fertility rate of 5.4 and very low literacy rates and now it is a country with a fertility rate of 2.14 and high literacy rates with net negative migration to usa. at that point in time all countries will be competing for immigrants.


do you guys love me now

ok,ok, alright. I guess it never mattered what my theory was. I might as well have just said I think chinese and russian scientists will genetically engineer monsters with super iqs who will in turn engineer superior sentient beings and all humans will be wiped off the face of the earth like specks of sand on the beach.

Re: November LC Thread - Survivor White House Edition **SPECIAL MUELLER POINTS INSIDE**

Bryce,

Yeah, that should happen. But, countries that need immigration aren't always so accepting of immigrants. The gulf states contain mostly immigrants, but they are not treated well. Maybe citizenship will become more of something used to lure people from developing countries when more developed countries have shrinking and aging populations.

Also, considering this is politics and people are all mean you're pretty well liked. I think your expectations are very high. This is a pretty unfriendly place.

As an answer to Suzzer's despair at the prospect of old age, I thought of proposing an old politards' home as a cooperative or something. But it wouldn't be a very welcoming place, so nm.

We can have a liberal one that’s well-funded, people are taken care of, etc, and a conservative one where everyone yells at the others to get off their lawn

People who go to law school and then don't work hard enough to pass the bar are about a half rung up on my sympathy ladder above those people making $300k that get their taxes raised.

Why even pass the bar when failing can get you a lifetime judgeship? Just blog endless conspiracy theories and I’m sure the next Republican President will get you through a rubber stamp senate confirmation hearing

Re: November LC Thread - Survivor White House Edition **SPECIAL MUELLER POINTS INSIDE**

PU 7.0 8.8 or whatever that forum was called seems to be the place for the internet posters with the thickest skin to debate the important issues of the day with NO RULES who then spent the next 5 years periodically crafting mostly unremarked on posts of substance. Instead, the regulars spent most of their time yelling at each other about the correct rules and how to implement them.

The fusion between a 500 billion dollar company, it's CEO/founder -- one of the wealthiest people in the world, and the military industrial complex. America headed to good places:



I suppose the good news is the independent Fourth Estate will start scrutinizing these sorts of phenomenon.

I dunno, if republicans want a dictator in office, it’s only fair a wealthy businessman overthrows him via military coup, right? I mean, if Rs really want that 3rd world banana republic experience and all.

"Enabling the Warfighter" sounds like it could be in some textbook about recovery from war addiction.

The only thing military types like more than "business-like" powerpoints are "business-like" neologisms.

“War fighter” sounds like a term Wal-Mart would use in training videos once we have completely outsourced our military to private business and all soldiers are each independent contractors.

Christopher Hooks on the Teens Against Gays Conference in Fort Worth

Quote:
The first night of the #Teens4Truth Conference concludes with a screening of the movie Light Wins. In one scene, a stalwart Christian soldier stands in the middle of a road at night, two headlights speeding toward her from the rear. “Like a tank in Tiananmen Square, the homosexual agenda has been running over people since Anita Bryant’s courageous stand in the 1970s,” she says. More recently, “Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty stood. The difference was, America stood with him.” So Robertson kept his show. “If we are to keep our freedoms, we must have the courage to stand.” The headlights draw closer — it turns out it’s merely two motorcycles, and they whiz past her. Lesson learned.

That’s the culture war in a nutshell. For decades, Christian conservatives used apocalyptic language to warn of the damage that would come to society, to children and to straight couplings if homosexuality were normalized. The bus was speeding toward us, and it would mow us down. And then gay marriage came, and it was barely anything at all. It faded almost instantly as a matter of contention and was replaced immediately by the new threat of the public acceptance of transgender people, as that will eventually be replaced by something else. It’s culture war as Zeno’s Paradox — the end of the West draws ever nearer, but never seems to hit. It must be exhausting.
Quote:
But the strange thing about their misdiagnosis is that it’s easier, maybe than ever before, for disparate groups to agree that something is rotten in the culture. There is something deeply disordered about a society that can field so many positive eulogies of Hugh Hefner — his superficial and empty life, his authoritarian relationship with and objectification of generations of young women — before expressing so much shocked indignation over Harvey Weinstein’s abuses a month later.

The most sympathetic speakers at #Teens4Truth point to that sickness, like McAuliffe, a “Christian life coach” who talked about his work with teens and his effort to build up a conception of non-sexual love and mutual respect in young people. Which is admirable stuff, within reason. The messages the culture sends to young people about sex and self-worth are poison.

But the urge to blame Rupaul’s Drag Race for the nation’s moral disorder is as comical as it is grotesque, particularly at a time when a person who bragged about serial sexual assault is president, and particularly given that most of the people in this room surely voted for him unquestioningly. I didn’t hear Trump’s name once.

On Friday, a respected pastor in Dallas flew from a press conference in defense of a child molestor to a gathering of Christians at a Baptist seminary committed to the moral defense of the nation against sinners, and received rapturous applause for doing so, from an audience for whom the foremost enemy are the boys on the competitive cheerleading circuit. He spoke up to save a nation led by a multiple-times-bankrupt conman and adulterer who uses people as tools, who regularly sexualizes his own daughter and has been accused of marital rape, and who won the highest office in the land by an ample margin. I used to go to these things and think — man, these people are lost. Now I think, we all are.

I really do wonder when we see the first wave of selling off Bitcoins.

I blinked and bitcoin went from 5k to 8k.

I like the negative comparison to the dotcom bubble, as if all .com websites eventually crashed, never made any money or created anything of value, and vanished off the face of the earth.

P.S: No one in the industry disputes that many/most of the current top cryptocurrencies will end up failing.
