Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

This excerpt is from a psychological profile of Donald Trump made before the 2016 election: Military school reinforced the strong work ethic and sense of discipline Trump had learned from his father. And it taught him how to deal with aggressive men, like his intimidating baseball coach, Theodore Do...

We can go back to our historical record and find civilization after civilization basically collapsed because the lack of available energy to overcome flood, famine, climate c...

Re: Extraterrestrial colony companies

Typical Brown bias. The article demonstrates some leaps of logic, and a lot of naivety regarding what is currently going on in space as well. Meh. I think two things are going to drive the future of humanity, and they are interrelated in a big way: The coming (I hope) Energy Age, and its enablement...

Re: Merkel is a traitor

That said, the US is spending way too much on defense. This is a problem with the US procurement system which I think is FUBAR. The German military is good enough for the most part. And with the economy as bad as it is, there is no money for more. If the US pushes too hard for more spending, countr...

Perhaps the US had a significant hand in Germany immigration policy but I doubt it; never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity or incompetence (paraphrasing Napoleon).
