(NB: post by Mandos.) Recent events suggest that, whatever they may have originally thought, the Trump administration is in the process of being pulled back into the overall historical attractor of US policy regarding Russia. The Russian establishment had made no secret of its preference for Trump and its belief that Trump was a person […]
Your post caused me to go check the Rapture Index (http://www.raptureready.com/rap2.html) which I had not checked in a while. Since I see it is not particularly high, I have severe doubts that the endtimes are upon us. 😉
Are you kidding?? It’s 181! The record high was 184 in Aug 2011. That’s only 3 points off.
We’re doomed, DOOOOOOOOMED, I say!
As a devoted follower of the Rapture Index, I go by the all time high of 188. I have my eye on a nice Mercedes :). However, here it is Monday morning and we are still here (at least in Eastern PA).
LOL material: The world ends and the misogynists meet their judge:
You love making fun of religious apocalyptic cults. But are you yourself, like so many of your fellow leftists, a member of the global warming apocalyptic cult? That would be amusing.
RD: I’ve noticed this character over on Ian’s site. I suggest ignoring him; he probably thinks Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs to church. 😈
Not to mention that a majority of the world’s actual scientists “believe” the “apocalyptic cult” of AGW.
You place a lot of faith in the government-sponsored bureaucracies and mass media pushing AGW. Do you consider those good actors on the whole?
No, I trust the scientists, the majority of whom acknowledge the reality of AGW.
I distrust the fact that the dissenting scientists tend to be getting money from the carbon-energy companies.
But then, Anglophone conservatives must deny AGW, because the sine qua non of Anglophone conservatism is analingual service to the real-life equivalents of Scrooge McDuck and Montgomery Burns, while if AGW is real, then capitalism is fornicated six ways from Sunday. 😈
All I can say, good to see you back blogging and in top form as always.

The Confluence proud finalist: "Best Liberal Blog"
Body: Last week I went down to Washington, D.C. to deliver a paper at a conference in the technical field where I worked, ten years or so and two or three careers ago, before the dot.com trash. The trip was solely an exercise in merit-making, since I doubt very much I'll get work in the field, but reconnecting with old friends was really great -- even […]
Michael Kinnucan in Current Affairs, "Why Republicans Are Impressive: This asymmetry is what's so impressive about the modern Republican Party. It's not just that they've won, but that winning has put them in a position to enact an extraordinarily ambitious and radical agenda, one which will in the course of a few months destroy pillars o […]
