The shit-show has barely even begun and "going back to normal" is not possible.
We are beyond unprepared for climate breakdown. We basically haven't even begun to prepare, and world leaders are still actively making it worse by continuing to expand fossil fuels. My friends, it's going to be an insane decade. Not to mention what comes after this decade.

What concerns me about what's coming in the economy; the executives that run the universal banks, hedge funds and investment banks that in turn rule America, would kick their grannies down a flight of stairs to save their bonuses and stock awards...buckle up

Keep hooking Thiel up with multimillion dollar US government contracts for technical surveillance stuff though, that seems reasonable and not at all doomed to result in terrible outcomes.

Putin would probably be slightly less bold if he hadn鈥檛 been assured that he is just one United States election away from being gifted all of Ukraine.

Russian conscripts are being sent to the front lines in such a hurry, practically without the proper arms and equipment, not even dog tags. Zelenskyy addressing the conscripts, advises them to tattoo their name and information on their bodies,so that they can be identified later.

If you missed any of Putin鈥檚 deranged speech at the Kremlin, no worries. @TuckerCarlson, @RepMTG, and all the other apologists will be repeating Putin鈥檚 talking points all day long.

No immigrant has taken your job. You were laid off by a capitalist who required cheap labor and took advantage of that immigrant to increase his profits, and nothing makes him happier than to hear you blame the immigrant and not him.

An observation of just how far down the rabbit hole we are 6 years later: the wife of a sitting Supreme Court justice was questioned about her role in an effort to overturn our democracy - an effort which her husband refuses to recuse himself from - and it barely grabs headlines.

What does Donald Trump have on Judge Cannon or her husband? Something is SO off in her decisions (and the court of appeals said as much) that it is impossible not to ask this question in all seriousness.

Are we supposed to swallow hook, line & sinker that you believe a presidential election has been stolen-- and the wrongful winner is running a "crime family" (her words)-- but you NEVER expressed that to your spouse?

And she insisted she could never influence his jurisprudence. Why? "[T]he man is independent and stubborn, with strong character traits of independence and integrity."

So Judge Dearie (the special master tasked w/reviewing the docs Trump stole from the govt) refused to play Trump鈥檚 games, telling him (in substance) to put up or shut up. Now Cannon swoops back in & says (in substance), Trump doesn鈥檛 have to put up & Judge Dearie should shut up.
New: The judge in the Mar-a-Lago docs case sided with Trump in his objection to the special master's proposal that he verify the govt's inventory log of seized items, and extended the deadline for the review into mid-December. More to come. storage.courtlistener.com/re鈥

Oy- Judge Cannon tinkers badly with (and with typos) Judge Dearie's scheduling order, relieving Trump of obligation to say whether docs were planted, even though she had wanted a clear inventory of what was found. She is such a disgrace.
