    • Interview Part 2: Politics Thru Climate Change
      This second excerpt from my interview is more interesting and longer. This is the second clip from my interview with Ian Welsh (Ian blogs at ianwelsh.net). For this segment, we went on a wild ride discussing the big picture mess that is US politics and society more broadly. I asked Ian what might happen if […]

A message from the new leader of the free world

Angela Merkel of Germany:

Just want to point out here that she’s a chemist. Quantum, if I’m not mistaken. Modeling systems on an atomic level is their jam.

In times like these, it pays to have a leader who actually understands how system s}#% works.

Compare the above to the guy currently holding the White House hostage:

As Wolfgang Pauli, another German (ok, Austrian🙄) quantum chemist said, “This is not even wrong”. The tweet above shows such a lack of understanding that there is no point even refuting it. No, you MAGA heads and 2A belligerents out there, I am not trying to be condescending. In a situation this serious, it’s time to stop allowing President Boaty McBoatface to own the libs. We need to expect him to do the job that YOU GUYS elected him to do. The rest of us are just along for the ride on this road trip from hell and none of us deserve to be put in mortal danger, even if, and I don’t approve of this myself, even if, there are those of us who get all sanctimonious about veganism and knitting our own sandals.

I’m not trying to be cute here. Whatever beef you think you have with Liberals, get the f{#% over it. We don’t have time for that now. And we shouldn’t have any patience for the nonsense McBoatface has spewed above. He’s trying, desperately and with the most stupid strategy imaginable, to make everyone go back to work because for some unfathomable reason, he gets mad props for the economy. There is no basis for that belief either but I don’t have time to go over it now.

Just get him to stop putting us in mortal danger. Is that too much to ask? Put down your petty grievances for two seconds and get on the horn to your local Republican Senator and tell him or her to do something and DO IT NOW.
