Once you get out of the cities, you get to areas where you still have a strong family presence, where the patriarch and the family takes care of the rest of the family.

The true believers of the neo-conservatives and neo-liberals movements see Russia, China, and India as the three countries that can effectively have a chance at standing up to US power on a global stage. Russia is currently breaking itself on Ukraine, and want to toss as much weapons to Ukraine as possible to see that this happens.

The swamp as a whole are getting sufficient kickbacks.

Pretty much. Tell the anxiety driven coastal leftists to step aside, and stop tossing our wealth at every ghetto queen and heroin addict, and watch the dynamism of the American people explode.

That, and resupply troops over 300 km of ocean with the largest and most experienced navy wanting to put every merchant marine and flag vessel on the bottom. At the beginning, it's don't lose. Sink merchant ships.

It's what ground Japan into the ground in WW2. At the end, Japanese civvies would hop into the drink to eat orange rinds tossed overboard by US sailors, completely cut off from food supplies and the ability to move food around the island.

The one thing is that it's possible for the west to fall back on traditional energy sources. Most of the "green" energy is capital intensive, but not so expensive to run.

I wouldn't mind it so much as long as we all agreed it was some crazy person that we let out of the asylum for a day, and we were letting it fulfil some fantasy. Kind of like a Make a Wish for the insane.

Not when it's normalized and we are forced to clap along.

Yeah, but the Arab backed down when Israel complained. He could have done it if he decided to say "Dicks out, Torahs up." The law wouldn't have stopped him.

It's an unorthodox way of decreasing crime in the long term for Sweden. But, I'll allow it.

Yeah, but I don't see how it would benefit the Establishment to have riots. Those are the people Ray Epps take their marching orders from.

Yeah, super woke public schools are going to be in a ride for the next few years.

If they are responsive to the parents, you have to ask, who are the parents?

Is it that 300 pound jabba the hutt reddit supermod with a trans pride flag? Is it that lady with a tattoo on her belly that says "Abortion Punch Card"? Is it that 100 pound heroin addict sitting around with his husband?

No.

It's us.

It's the people who are willing to work all day long to support their kids, and who do their best so they succeed.

And because it's us, call out the groomers when they try to gaslight you into doing Drag Queen Story Hour. At the end of the day, we are the ones with the power, because we are the ones involved. And they are our kids.

The only ones that will permit it is the woke places with parents who rely on the establishment, and where they feel their social standing revolves around saying the right shibboleths and stickers on their car.

This is pretty true. And this just shows the power of a determined experienced tradesmen.

FBI has 100% infiltrated Antifa. It's just that Antifa doesn't threaten the DNC power base, and their leadership can really get them to jump with the time comes... so, why throw away this crude tool?

We already have agricultural price supports, as well as we pay farmers to... not farm.

Instead we ship a box of USDA price supported commodities every month for those on welfare/food stamps.

Yes, I know, we'll get a picture of some land whale pointing to a bag of beans saying "That ain't food" with AOC crying. But hey.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government_cheese

"…be distributed free to the needy by nonprofit organizations." Ronald Reagan, in his official statement about the distribution of the Cheese Inventory of the Commodity Credit Corporation, said, "The 1981 farm bill I signed today will slow the rise in price support levels, but even under this bill, surpluses will continue to pile up. A total of more than 560 million pounds [250,000 t] of cheese has already been consigned to warehouses, so more distributions may be necessary as we continue our drive to root out waste in government and make the best possible use of our nation's resources."

Government cheese.

No literally. Reagan had the right idea. You know all that food we pay farmers not to grow via the USDA? Instead the government buys it, packs it up, and sends it to people on welfare/food stamps.

There shouldn't be any problem preparing your own meal.

The money spigot from the major sources DNC sources for things like bail turns on when there they want this group of misfits to bring chaos. It's also when their "leadership" comes out to earn their pay. In 2020 it was to cause general chaos to derail a sitting president. In 2008, it was to make Occupy Wall Street unattractive to the population at large.

Otherwise, it's a mixture of trust fund babies, drug dealing, and letting them be homeless while receiving "compassionate government services."

For this last part, look at SE Water Ave and SE Main St in Portland. The government in 2020 literally built a "tiny village" across the river from the government center in Portland. Antifa live here, and during 2020, wandered out to set fire to court houses and police stations during night. During day they retreated to do drugs and fuck kids who listened a bit too much to a Communist/Socialist teacher.

Atlanta is run by the true believers. The cops will be permitted to cull them. This group needs to know when they are wanted to sow political chaos, and when it's time to do hard drugs and stay out of site. The leadership will get decades in jail, the rest will be released, free to hop up back on the horse.

The ghost cities are a phenomenon between how government officials are promoted, and that there isn't any trustworthy investments in China.

On the government official side, to get promoted within the CCP, you need to carry out the directives from your superiors. As someone put in charge of the municipal government, you are given the directive "We need 1 million residential units." So, you figure out how to build 1 million units, no matter how crappy they are.

Then from the investment side, their stock market is filled with the equivalent of Enrons, and everyone knows it. Not a safe investment. And they can't convert their RMB freely into Euros or USD, so, they can't invest outside of China. But, they can invest in Real Estate, which is "always going up." So, that's where they park their money. And because it's overbuilt, rent is crazy cheap compared to the capital costs for residences in everything but high tier cities... so... people don't bother to rent the building out. End result, millions of empty condos, slowly rotting.
