Lots of bad weather in the Major food-producing areas of the US. Coupled with the farm shutdowns, the bad grain harvest and the large-scale culling of meat animals 2021 ain't looking good for food.

Plus the anomalous explosions at many major food storage and distribution plants, started in Arabic countries in the Middle-East and there have been others in the UK and elsewhere, totally against the odds, never happened before, all of them major.

Something is afoot, we also had the Rocker Fellah paper at the end of July about the Great American Table Reset, all about a new world order of food control, and then, only two months later, a bill based on the paper was ratified by the Senate.

All very quiet in the news but there if you look for it, in other words, only curious people can easily find out about new legislation (or Empirical Decrees), because it isn't widely publicised.

Food is quite important, why isn't it big news ?

Also not widely publicised, the Bank of England (who employ foreigners in high positions, i don't agree with that, but the days of sovereign nations have long passed so it's immaterial) have jumped on the carbon tax bandwagon and made new 'rules' that will wipe out most small businesses because it's impossible to comply with the new laws unless you have a ton of resources.

The 'new normal' isn't about germs, it's about total control, total information awareness, full spectrum dominance.

It's Nazi Germany but with far subtler marketing and control tools.

Man, there won't be 2 rocks left to rub together in Louisiana after this storm season.  This is the 3rd one.

The people at the top have the Big Picture, we don't, therefore we are pieces on a board, unimportant, dispensible.

Once you realise that you are nothing in their eyes then it all makes sense.

'They' aren't cold and callous, they're just doing the best thing as far as large-scale and long-term planning goes, even c###s like Cheney felt that they had a vision and were doing 'the right thing', even up to and including outing your own Lesbian daughter for the furtherance of your straight daughter's career.

Maybe they're right, perhaps most of us are so dumb and short-sighted we need Mamma and Pappa State to 'guide' us ?

I don't feel like that, do you ?

Ye screw THEM ! Different f###ers from US !

I was being inclusive, i dislike the typical independent-media type that calls people asleep and sheeple when they could call them simply uninformed. You can't convince people that the government is a bunch of c###s if you insult the people you're trying to raise the awareness of.

>> people you're trying to raise the awareness of.

Even if you make people aware about assorted evil stuff, what then?

Personally I take the approach that yes, there's evil stuff out there, but I can't fix it all so I'll pick a few things to work on and try to make a difference in those. Along with that, pick some good things to work on and nurture.

In general, I think the most productive approach is to take a positive focus on making our local communities stronger. People can make good things happen locally even if the bigger picture has some dark corners.

In my obsessive reading about fire yesterday, I came across this line in an article, that seems apropos here:

Quote
Dr. Karl Weick (personal communication, 2005), a renown professor of organizational behavior and psychology at the University of Michigan points out, there is good evidence to support the notion that when people are threatened, their thinking becomes much more rigid and difficult to change. Furthermore, they tend to seek out and talk only to those who are most familiar to them (Shaw et al., 1981).

Or, to put it in "internet terms," YOU CAN'T REACH ANYONE IN ALL CAPS!!!!!

Wilfred is the earliest “W” named storm on record.

Tropical Storm Wilfred forms in Atlantic, setting record as forecasters run out of storm names

Inform the ignorant. When they reach Z, do the names just wrap, or do we go Excel style with Aaron and... hmm... I guess you have wrap

XYZ are never used. After W, they switch to Greek letters.

The season runs into November, so we have a ways to go.

I'll add that we've had some sort of super-duper upper winds going east from the mid-Atlantic mainland this year.  It has provided some sort of protective shield so far.  I assume, but do not know for sure, that this is related to the heat & winds you've been having out west.

Ah. It's only the second time in history. That's why I've never heard of Hurricane Alpha. Sounds a lot more ominous than Hurricane Alice
