Given how we have a president who seems to profit well from disorder, I have put this one on my list to read. Nick Taleb has some interesting insights.
The Mexican-American, who still hasn't learned or come to respect anything about our laws and traditions of freedom. He can fight Kevin De Leon to be el presidente/jefe maximo over the soon to be rump nation state of Nuevo Baja California, or maybe we should just call it Rump.
Check out their two websites, and notice the difference in what issue they choose to support and promote. Janet is what's right with America, and Ricardo is what is so very wrong.
Bonus result of this event: Vietnamese Americans will vote Republican in greater numbers.

Yellowmead Stone Circle is a Bronze Age concentric stone circle consisting of four rings of stones set within one another. The largest is 98 feet (20 m) wide and the smallest, 19 feet
(6 m). It is located on Yellowmead Down near Sheepstor. The circles once encircled a burial cairn, although this is now barely visible.
A huge polar bear skull with very different features from modern polar bear skulls has been discovered at an eroding archaeological site in northernmost Alaska. Its massive size and elongated, narrow shape recall an unusual polar bear reported by Inuit hunters but never photographed, filmed or in any other way scientifically verified.
In interview projects documenting the traditional knowledge of the Inuit peoples of northern Alaska and the western Canadian Arctic, hunters report very rare sightings of a bear “that has a longer neck; it’s high and pure white, but looks like a weasel and runs fast like a weasel”. This creature is known as “tiriarnaq” in the Siglitun dialect, “tigiaqpak” in the Kangiryuarmiut dialect, all of them translating to “weasel bear.”
Here’s a description of a weasel bear by a Sachs Harbour hunter from a 2010 interview:
“You get sometimes bears which we call tiriarnat, and they get over 11 foot. They get very big; they’re slim, their necks are way longer than the stubby bears that we get now. I never seen a weasel type bear for years, years and years…. We used to see some north of Storkerson Bay when we travel…. And they’re very big…. Stubby bears get ten [feet] three [inches], ten [feet] four [inches], that sort of thing. But a weasel type bear is 11-foot plus.
Perhaps a more thorough investigation might find additional evidence of this weasel bear. Very interesting indeed.
