British farmer Martin Crawford describes (in a short NatGeo video running less than three and a half minutes) how agroforestry could help save the world from starvation and drought brought on by climate change. "What we think of as normal in terms of food production is actually not normal at all," he says, and he ain't lying -- the way big ag corporations do it (one crop on one slab of land, lots of pesticides) suits them more than it suits human beings. Mr. Crawford's also written a book, Creating a Forest Garden: Working With Nature to Grow Edible Crops, though you'll have to hunt around for it a bit.
Former Health and Human Services advisor, if you can call him that, advocated creating "herd immunity" by infecting "Infants, kids, teens, young people, young adults, middle aged with no conditions etc.," adding "(w)e want them infected," in case you missed it the first time. Admit it -- you thought this was A Modest Proposal for a minute, didn't you? Except I don't think Mr. Swift would have used the word "fastly" even as a wink to his audience. This Administration was quick to say this fellow's ramblings had no sway over their policies, although our soon-to-be-ex-President wouldn't STFU about "herd immunity" all freaking year.
Nathan Bernard at Mainer describes "How Sara Gideon Lost to (Susan) Collins the Day After She Entered the Race," but I bet you could replace Sara Gideon's name (and Susan Collins's name!) with their counterparts in Iowa, Kentucky, and North Carolina and have more or less the same article. Spoiler alert: Ms. Gideon lost by taking big Democrat money and taking big Democrat advice, resulting in a campaign that was "ugly, uninspiring, obscenely expensive, and out of touch with local concerns." And note well that Jared Golden got re-elected easily in a right-of-center House district "despite" supporting Medicare-for-All while Ms. Gideon lost by seven percentage points statewide after her six-figure consultant advisors all told her not to support it. (But read the whole thing, not least for the damning, and laugh-out-loud, testimony of one Alex Steed.)
What's the worst thing about Republicans' entirely manufactured outrage that Joe Biden's campaign manager referred to them all as "fuckers" in an interview? No, it's not that Republicans have spent four years excusing or pretending not to hear all of our soon-to-be-ex-President's cuss words, but that our "liberal" media will tell us this is the reason Mitch McConnell blocks everything Joe Biden tries to do, which would disregard 14 years of evidence telling us Mitch McConnell blocks everything any Democratic President (or House!) tries to do just because he can. Hey, they called us fuckers! I call them evil; I think that's worse.
Finally, when confronted with the news that our soon-to-be-ex-President's future neighbors in Florida don't want him there and would cite the terms of his own 1993 post-bankruptcy legal maneuvering to keep him out, I couldn't blame you for being quite amused at watching him get some of his own -- after all, hasn't he been clogging up the courts with far more frivolous lawsuits the last few weeks? Sadly, I bet this story ends with him getting some crony in the state legislature to help him out -- with a law aimed at "letting people live where they want" regardless of the legal agreements they've made, perhaps? If so, that sure would be conservative of them.
