No, not climate change.

Fearing ‘Extinction-Level Event,’ N.Y. Democrats Turn Against Each Other
www.nytimes.com/2022/05/17/nyregion/democrats-redistrict-ny…
But if New York’s redistricting cycle began this year with an attempt by Democrats to marginalize Republicans, it now appears destined to end in intense infighting among Democrats as the Aug. 23 primary approaches — thanks to a ruling last month by the state’s highest court declaring the Democrat-led Legislature’s maps unconstitutional…

The replacement map, drawn for the court by Jonathan R. Cervas, erased outright gains that Democrats had counted on based on the Legislature’s map and made other Democratic swing seats more competitive. It also forced at least five pairs of incumbents together in the same districts from Brooklyn to Buffalo, leaving candidates to decide whether to retire, move or go head-to-head with another sitting House member.

Yeah, every so often people seem to need to be reminded that Republicans can’t/don’t govern. They’ve proven that consistently since about the 1960s. They mess everything up, and then are tossed out en-masse for a few years while the Dems clean it up. Happened after Bush I, Bush II, and Trump. If/when DeSantis becomes POTUS, Dems will have to swoop in after 4 or 8 years and clean up his mess, too.

My concern is that Repugs will mess things up so badly that they will be beyond repair. Then we’ll collapse like every other society has (e.g. Rome, Athens, Egypt, Persia).

This is not a political problem, it’s a societal problem.

We should be so lucky. Rome lasted 1000 years, Egypt 3000 (With occasional changes in management). Persia a little less than 1000 years. The Roman Republic, however, was only about 500 years before they turned it over to the Caesars. Other than those 500 years, all those empires were top-down autocracies. At this juncture we seem to have a lot of people wanting that - they are the ones waving guns. Our republic may not last 500 years. Shoot, may not last 250 years.

Ah, yes, bring back the good old days of Trumpian corruption and incompetence. Or better yet, lets follow the Magats right down the black hole of fascism. Wonderful!

No, bring back affordable gas and food, restocked store shelves, and reduced crime. These will be easy wins after this disaster of an administration.

You’re delusional if you believe authoritarian strong men will do that. They are in lock-step with the uber-rich.

The USA is experiencing the evolution of predatory capitalism in which fewer and fewer are amassing more and more of the funny money being printed.

The uber-rich will continue to push up the prices as high as the markets will bear. It’s called capitalism.

Every nation is suffering inflation. Every single one. The rich get richer, the non-rich struggle and back-slide.
