CRUNCH-CH-CH-Y ECON & ROARINGLY ECLECTIC WHATNOT
DILBERTERIE AND PERSUASION FILTER-O-RAMA
By the way, if at first glance Adams' blog appears pro-Trump, look again, it is not. Over the past months Adams has been analyzing and explaining some of the more esoteric techniques that Trump employs in his speeches and debates and even Tweets. Long before any of the op-ed crew in major media, Adams predicted the rise of Trump. His blog is fascinating reading, and it's worth the trouble to read many of his previous posts. And yes, this is the cartoonist who came up with Dilbert. And no, I am not for Trump. Hey, I live in Mexico.

Rolling preacher-like thunder and, on many an occasion, wackily wicked imagery.
The Archdruid Report
His sci fi is not my cup of chai, but his skill and prolificacy as an essayist is a wonder.
Cranky sailboat doomer, but at times the language kicks samovar, e.g.:
"And there are all those who, whenever I publish something that mentions climate change, crawl out of the woodwork and gnash their exoskeletal mandibles at me, to the effect that climate=weather, and it's all a conspiracy theory. They are idiots and deserve a boathook in the eye."
"People were summoned to explore the heavens, they were promised universal prosperity, a world without borders, gender equality, and a third gender, and a fourth, and a fifth, and watermelons that taste like raccoons, and raccoons with the hair of mermaids. But people wanted a hug, warm tea, summers in the country, and to spend time with their relatives."
