The Trump-Twitter Tiff Makes No Sense

Fri, 05/29/2020 - 15:27

As if we did not have enough drama in our lives, suddenly we have the Trump-Twitter soap opera. And it doesn’t seem to make sense from any angle. Trump has made Twitter the go-to place for politicians, ‘round the world, to put out their messages. And, of course, politicians of any stripe are in business […]

White Supremacy Number One Threat — Dangerous as ISIS, Al-Qaeda

Fri, 05/29/2020 - 12:40

Most of the crises we’ve covered have been natural events, such as an asteroid strike, or human-made problems, such as global warming. Let’s turn to a purely human phenomenon. What is the number one risk that we face from each other? The consensus appears to be white-supremacist terrorism. Politico lists eight issues that experts fear. […]

How Joe Biden Somehow Wins From His Basement

Thu, 05/28/2020 - 15:25

This is a presidential election year, but you’d hardly know it. Where are the primaries? Gone. Where are the debates? Gone. Where are the campaign trail stump speeches and public appearances at county fairs? Gone. Where are the arena-filling raucous Trump rallies? Gone. What we have left is the challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, […]

Malaria Drug Has Been Heavily Studied for Covid-19

Wed, 05/27/2020 - 15:41

There’s been a lot of talk about the malaria drug, hydroxychloroquine, especially since Donald Trump bragged that he told his doctor to give him a prescription for it. You probably couldn’t get unapproved drugs for yourself, but let’s set that aside. Is the drug effective for Covid-19? There’s been a lot of research, so let’s […]

A Quarter-Billion People Are On The Move

Wed, 05/27/2020 - 12:52

Some of the crises we are exploring are natural. Others are human-made, and in some cases, such as climate change, it’s a combination of the two. Here’s another one: mass migration. For any of many reasons, people have to move from their homes. When huge areas are hostile to life, it causes mass migration. Let’s […]

Face Masks Just Became a Presidential Election Issue

Tue, 05/26/2020 - 14:46

It would be silly to think that any issue in 2020 couldn’t be politicized, but there is now a new level beyond expert-mode of how to get voters to line up on one side of an issue or another. On Monday, Memorial Day, former vice president Joe Biden took part in a ceremony in his […]

Will Biden Really Pick Amy Klobuchar as VP?

Fri, 05/22/2020 - 14:56

While the COVID-19 lockdown debate rages over Memorial Day weekend, several prominent Democratic women are getting attention from former vice president Joe Biden. No, not that kind of attention. Names like Klobuchar, Abrams, and Demings, to name a few, are being tossed around as potential vice presidential picks for Biden. Reports now indicate that several […]

Are Humans an “Endangered Species”?

Fri, 05/22/2020 - 12:14

As humans, we are, of course, most concerned with our own survival. But the world is a “closed system,” meaning that nothing is added or subtracted—all the parts have to work together to maintain life as we know it. EcoWatch considers global warming the greatest threat to survival of life on the planet, as we […]

Election Models Choke on Coronavirus Data Points

Thu, 05/21/2020 - 20:44

During any given presidential election year, economic data points act as reliable pieces of information upon which data modelers can try to predict the outcome. Economic indicators, such as quarterly growth, are released regularly and factor into how voters perceive the economy, along with unemployment numbers as well. The 2016 election which, despite Donald Trump […]

People Say Climate Change is the Next Crisis

Wed, 05/20/2020 - 18:02

This is a series about possible crises the next president may face. Up to now, we’ve focused on what experts warn about. For this one, let’s see what average people worry about for the future. A recent Gallup Poll says that Americans continue to view global warming as a serious threat. At the end of […]

Democrats Would Like to Run Obama Against Trump

Wed, 05/20/2020 - 13:26

Even former Vice President Joe Biden personally evoked the name of President Obama early and often during the Democratic debates of last year trying to hitch his wagon to his boss’s coattails. Remember, Biden would remind voters, I was part of the administration of the first black president, and Hope and Change was my motto, […]

Artificial Intelligence Not An Artificial Danger

Tue, 05/19/2020 - 14:33

In the last article, we discussed threats from outer space, including an asteroid collision. We can prepare for some of those events—if we care. Now, let’s get back to earth. What other existential risks does humanity face? Science fiction fans have been worrying about this one for many years. In the 1977 movie, Demon Seed, […]

Lessons From 2016: Polls Are Not Everything – Most of the Time, They’re Nothing

Mon, 05/18/2020 - 19:48

This post forms the first of a new series I have planned analyzing where the Democrats went wrong in 2016. In this article, I’ll be looking at why polls can provide false hope, how to properly read polls, and what the public can do in 2020 to avoid the hype surrounding election polling. There are […]

Justin Amash Ends Libertarian Presidential Bid

Mon, 05/18/2020 - 12:05

A month ago, we had an article saying that Michigan’s Justin Amash was looking into a run for president. We have noted that candidates often say they are not running just before they do, and that there are several steps to running, so beginning the process may mean nothing. And nothing is what we got […]

CNN Poll: Trump Still Winning on Economy Despite Covid-19 Lockdowns

Fri, 05/15/2020 - 17:09

Ever since the Covid-19 “stay-at-home” orders began in mid-March, and businesses classified as “non-essential” were ordered closed, political observers have wondered how President Trump would ever recover in terms of his ratings on handling the economy. The President often touted the lockdowns as temporary and predicted a “V”-shaped economic dip, as a best-case scenario. Still, […]

The Next Worldwide Crisis Might Come From Space

Fri, 05/15/2020 - 12:53

While we’re obsessing over Covid-19, maybe we should realize there are other threats to life on earth. Some of those threats are not even here—they’re from outer space. No, this is not science fiction—it’s science fact. There are genuine risks that don’t include UFOs and little green men. The most obvious risk is the danger […]

The Next Covid-19 Health Crisis May be from Farm Animals

Thu, 05/14/2020 - 14:30

In the last article, we explored the impact of Covid-19 on housing. Now, let’s look at food—since food, clothing, and shelter are considered our most basic material needs. We tend to feel superior, thinking these diseases are the fault of people who eat exotic animals, but don’t feel so uppity. Our farm animals may be […]

Lesser of Two Evils? Biden Might Win That Question

Wed, 05/13/2020 - 14:13

As we have touched on many times, the 2016 election seemed rife with the question of choosing between two candidates that were fairly disliked by voters in general. Yes, Democrats voted for Hillary Clinton en masse, and Republicans did the same for Donald Trump, but that doesn’t mean either party was largely favorable of their […]

Eviction and Homelessness May Be the Next Covid-19 Crisis

Tue, 05/12/2020 - 17:25

This is actually the third in a series of “What’s Next.” The first was about the epidemic of lawsuits that will follow Covid-19. The second was the attendant medical effects of the pandemic, especially mental health problems. We skipped the economic recession/depression, since that’s been overdone, but there are many other facets to explore. One […]

Covid-19 Will Impact More Than Those Directly Infected

Mon, 05/11/2020 - 17:04

A lot of energy has been expended lately in pointing fingers and trying to find someone to blame and punish for Covid-19. . .something that is, basically, an “act of God.” Has anyone thought of punishing God? Seriously, instead of looking backward, why not look forward? What should we prepare for? There will be issues […]
