It reminds me of an old gambit in fly fishing called the “artificial hatch.” Trout like to gorge on mayfly nymphs as they rise out of a stream and shuck their nymphal shells to fly away as winged adults. The bugs do this in bunches, at a particular time of day, according to sub-species. This “hatch” drives the trout into a feeding frenzy.

Ok I know a lot of you don't like this guy and he's no fan of Trump (nor was he of Clinton) but he makes a hell of a lot of sense here.

WTF is going on with our more or less permanent government? If Trump won't or can't weed these people out it's looking more and more like we're going to have to do it.

Do you really think Russia wants to reoccupy these countries [The Baltics] for the pleasure of subsidizing them and draining the Russian treasury?

Making anyone with a modicum of intelligence wonder if Kunstler has ever been to the Baltics, or Russia for that matter . . . .

Looking more and more like “we’re gonna have to do it”.

"Making anyone with a modicum of intelligence wonder if Kunstler has ever been to the Baltics, or Russia for that matter . . . "

Making anyone with a modicum of intelligence wonder if Kunstler has any idea why "Empire" is such a powerful term to any dictator.

It's not about the expense, it's about how it looks on a map of the world.

France, for example, has a vastly larger economy and greater GDP than Russia - for that matter, so do California, Texas, and New York - but you know Vlad Putin would rather be Emperor of Russia than of France - or New York!

I love the guy. Sure some of his stuff is nuts, some paranoid, but a lot of what he writes is spot on.

The stuff about private contractors is spot on. It’s the mechanism by which deep state power has grown out of control
