That proverbial “rainy day” thing

The bankrupt island, already contending with the aftermath of a storm that left as much as $1 billion of damage and hundreds of thousands still without power, faces even more upheaval with Hurricane Maria set to hit as soon as Tuesday night. [story]

Puerto Rico, already trying to dig itself out of a historic financial crisis, is now facing a direct hit by a major hurricane that could destroy any progress the U.S. territory has made under a year-old economic rehab plan ─ and set it back further. [story]


…and they’re not even at “future generations” yet.

Rule #1 for eating next year:
Don’t eat your seed corn.

Note: even ancient peoples used granaries and such to store a surplus to survive bad times.
That’s why there are now modern peoples… at least for now.

“The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,”

Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary,”

“The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented. It is that socialism has been faithfully implemented.”*

Note the viciously angry faces — demanding that they be allowed to claim the rights of a citizen in a country — as citizens of a different country.

dizzying

CalBezerekeley [Fiat Lux] is the “Home of Teh Free Speech Movement” — the point of which was to change the University’s rule disallowing on-campus advocacy of political causes or candidates and outside political speakers.

Now?

BOYCOTT THE ALT-RIGHT @UCBerkeley

[full original]

Yep. One hundred fifty [150] [non-STEM] professors and a handful of grad students are calling for the entire ‘University” to shut down, all staff and students to “stay home” because of “Free Speech Week” wherein conservative, anti-snowflake statements might be made.

One hundred fifty [150] [non-STEM] professors out of 1,620 full-time and 500 part-time faculty members, so….

[The letter] calls upon faculty to take three steps: cancel classes and tell students to stay home; close buildings and departments and allow staff to stay home; and not penalize students who are afraid of coming to campus.

…According to [associate teaching professor of African American studies Michael] Cohen, most of the students in his African American Studies 27AC class are students of color. Cohen said he believed that for him to ask his students to be on campus during Free Speech Week was unethical and discriminatory.

…“People are coming to humiliate others and incite violence.”

…“We’re not afraid of Milo, Ann (Coulter) or Bannon’s words. We have a deep anxiety over the violence that their followers bring in response,” Cohen said.

Lookit alla them dang Alt-Rioters!

[I was gonna say "Lookit alla them dang NAZIs," but...]

So here we have one of the major Universities in the world consciously and intentionally creating actual mental/emotional illness* in a vulnerable percentage of their students using …facts at variance with Reality to incite fear of physical — and emotional — danger. Yes — “emotional danger”

*It is a mental/emotional illness to fear opinions different than those you have learned from your teachers/elders. It as once the goal of a university education to expose future adults to the ideas of the ages from many cultures and civilizations — many of which were bound to conflict with whatever ideas the student had encountered thus far — thus improving his ability to sort through and think about conflicting ideas and world views. This was once called “An Education.”

Now, “An Education” is the inculcated response to run screeeeming whimpering in fear from any idea different than Teh Approved Narrative.

C’mon in Barbarians! We’re almost ready!!

tonight’s facepalm

Non-U.S. citizens won’t be allowed to vote on local matters in College Park, Md., despite city council officials voting in favor of a proposal that would have allowed it earlier this week. The College Park City Council voted 4-3 Tuesday night to allow legal permanent residents and illegal immigrants to participate in municipal elections. One council member did not vote.

Would they need to show ID to prove they’re eligible and not just tourists, diplomats, or out-of-city/state illegals?

Okay, back to the facepalm thing…

For most Council actions, a simple majority of Council members present must vote in favor of an item for it to be adopted,” the city said in a news release. “However, changes to the Charter have a different requirement. The City Charter was amended in June to require the affirmative vote of six elected officials to change the Charter.” [story]
