No great leader would take it on. You can't make a run at glory with attention deficit disordered asthmatic diabetics with celiac disease who are addicted to drugs. And why would a great leader want to save these cats. Even the army has a tremendous problem finding recruits that are fit for duty.

GDD = (Tmax + Tmin) / 2 - Tbase

GDDs are measured from the start of growth in spring for a particular crop.

The local conversation from last year was stark and visceral from many.

Many reasons from pride to the illusions of control.

They came back to the notion we are correct and gave a smile of assurance to rest the land.

This mean pastoral planting and limited crop inputs as we noted in the forums.

As we discussed a few widows sheltered in place and the markers are clear.

I will pursue some nitrogen producing crops as already as we let the land heal.

“For whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth”

As noted.

According to a United States Army official touring Houston's recruiting stations this week, only 30 percent of the 17-to-24-year-olds in the current population at large meet the mental, background, physical standards needed for military service.

Unfortunately, feminism and future is an oxymoron (or fortunately, depending on your point-of-view), as it seems to be unsustainable on the long run.

Based on past history, it appears that a civilization that embraces feminist values will cease to exist in just a few centuries. This is why we have never seen a feminist civilization aside from very short spans at the end of the Roman empire and possibly a few other more ancient civilizations.

Reading the history of the Roman Empire brings such glaring similarities with our own civilization, it is as if human social dynamics are literally stuck in a cycle that repeats every couple thousand years (there were two matriarchical, extremely advanced civilizations: one at the end of the Roman empire, 2000 years ago, one possibly at the end of Babylon, 4000 years ago).

For those who enjoy history, here is a short recap of social changes in Rome, 2 millenia ago (most historians focus on military and political facts, but I find the social aspects just as fascinating):

* ~5 century BC: Roman civilization is a a strong patriarchy, fathers are liable for the actions of their wife and children, and have absolute authority over the family (including the power of life and death)
* ~1 century BC: Roman civilization blossoms into the most powerful and advanced civilization in the world. Material wealth is astounding, citizens (i.e.: non slaves) do not need to work. They have running water, baths and import spices from thousands of miles away. The Romans enjoy the arts and philosophy; they know and appreciate democracy, commerce, science, human rights, animal rights, children rights and women become emancipated. No-fault divorce is enacted, and quickly becomes popular by the end of the century.
* ~1-2 century AD: The family unit is destroyed. Men refuse to marry and the government tries to revive marriage with a “bachelor tax”, to no avail. Children are growing up without fathers, Roman women show little interest in raising their own children and frequently use nannies. The wealth and power of women grows very fast, while men become increasingly demotivated and engage in prostitution and vice. Prostitution and homosexuality become widespread.
* ~3-4 century AD: A moral and demographic collapse takes place, Roman population declines due to below-replacement birth-rate. Vice and massive corruption are rampant, while the new-born Catholic Religion is gaining power (it becomes the religion of the Empire in 380 AD). There is extreme economic, political and military instability: there are 25 successive emperors in half a century (many end up assassinated), the Empire is ungovernable and on the brink of civil war.
* ~5 century AD: The Empire is ruled by an elite of military men that use the Emperor as a puppet; due to massive debts and financial problems, the Empire cannot afford to hire foreign mercenaries to defend itself (Roman citizens have long ago being replaced by mercenaries in the army), and starts “selling” parts of the Empire in exchange for protection. Eventually, the mercenaries figure out that the “Emperor has no clothes”, and overrun and pillage the Empire.
* humanity falls back into the Bronze Age (think: eating squirrel meat and living in a cave); 12 centuries of religious zilotry (The Great Inquisition, Crusades) and intellectual darkness follow: science, commerce, philosophy, human rights become unknown concepts until they are rediscovered again during the Age of Enlightenment in 17th century AD.

Regarding the Babylonian civilization (~2,000 BC), we have relatively few records, but we do know that they had a very advanced civilization because we found their legislative code written down on stone tablets (yes, they had laws and tribunals, and some of today’s commercial code can even be traced back to Babylonian law). They had child support laws (which seems to indicate that there was a family breakdown), and they collapsed presumably due to a “moral breakdown” figuratively represented in the Bible as the “Tower of Babel” (which was inspired by a real tower). Interesting and controversial anecdote: some claim that the Roman Catholic Religion is nothing more than a rewriting and adaptation of an ancient Babylonian religion!

You might say Roman cultural elites experienced Robin Hanson’s switch from a farmer to a forager society. How’d that turn out for everyone?

Let’s examine the parallels more closely.

~5 century BC Rome = ~1700 – 1920 America. The family unit is essentially “father knows best”, and slutting around by women is considered the height of shameful behavior, (as is cadding about by men). Monogamy is held up as the ideal arrangement without exception. (The “Wild West” might be an exception to the general rule of the day, as whoring and hell-raising were widespread in the frontier.) Lessers look up to their betters as exemplars of moral rectitude.

~1 century BC Rome = ~1920 – 1970 America. America is rising to the height of her power, a hyperpower being born. An economic and military power heretofore unseen in all recorded history. While the world digs out from under the rubble of consecutive wars and Communist pogroms, we have a battalion of aircraft carriers, a largely homogeneous population, and cheap housing for everyone willing to put in an honest day’s work. But the poison pill has been swallowed; the suffrage movement achieves its main goal, and the dark shroud of the equalist era is about to descend. In academic halls and classrooms, lessers are pedestalized, while betters are denigrated.

~1-2 century AD Rome = 1970-2000 America. The scourge of single momhood, free and easy divorce, child support laws, majority female colleges, DADT repealed, gay marriage, game, etc etc ad infinitum. In short, the ultimate expression of anti-discrimination, anti-received wisdom, individualist ideology, (ironically buttressed by the groupthink of diversity mongers.) Lessers ignore their betters, who in turn renege on their traditional responsibility to act as examples for the lessers.

~3-4 century AD Rome = 2000-2010 America. (You’ll notice America’s progression through the stages of empire is much faster than was Rome’s. This is the blessing — or curse — of high tech mass communication.) The native stock of America, (specifically, the betters of that stock), have stopped having kids. Vice and corruption are on the rise. (See: Chicago, CRA, Goldman Sachs, neocon lies, Enron, Madoff… I could go on.) Economic and political instability are the order of the day. While America’s presidents aren’t being assassinated, our elections have been nailbiters since 2000, and partisanship is at a fevered pitch. A reborn religion called Islam threatens to co-opt the sympathies of Western societies’ rootless rejects and masculinized women. Except for the thinnest upper class slice, betters now ape the habits of their lessers.

~5 century Rome = present day America. America is ruled by an elite of cognitive jackpot winners who use the President as a puppet. Massive debt and financial chicanery is practically enshrined in law. The army is less and less filled with the demographic slice of American citizens that used to make up its ranks. Mercenaries (UN peacekeepers, bribed warlords, arm-twisted allies, recent unassimilated immigrants, and the desperate, poor and out of shape) now make up a larger part of the tip of the spear that projects American power. America is in the process of slow-motion selling off of the Southwest to appease the millions of peasant illegals it cavalierly allowed to invade and settle in the country.

The Fall of Rome = ? America.

America is having her Tower of Babel moment, and the elites applaud it when they aren’t dithering over tax code arcana or the cultural impact of snarky late night TV hosts. These parallels with Rome’s fall should make you feel queasy about the future of this nation. But you’ll quickly push aside those depressing thoughts and switch on for another lightning round of Call of Duty, figuring it’s not your problem. Until it is. Do you feel lucky, punk?

Cliffs:
an interesting comparison between feminism in ancient Rome and present day America, and how the rise of feminism portends a civilization’s collapse.

I'm constantly getting new information regarding the collapse of America. Consistent with this article, I was in a local restaurant a couple of weeks ago and there was a Nigerian man in there with his Nigerian wife all dressed in African garb and their small child. He introduced himself to me as "Alexander" and stated that he was in the US Army at the nearby base.

Many areas I seen did get crops in. As we traveled last week to lay a Lady to rest we seen good and bad regional plantings.

It worked out fine in may areas.

Over 130,000 people showed or more showed up for 30,000 seats last night.
They set up a Big Screen or two outside and served refreshments,
food, etc for those folks.

Fewer then 300 people showed up for a Biden rally. He canceled his next rally when he heard there would be only 58 people, so he just issued a 3-minute campaign video instead.

Trump ain't dropping out.

These are not democrats. The last of them are already dead and buried as the body farm continues to grow.

We are now in the third generation of Mexican colonization. Many have moved up to dental assistants, nurses and school teachers. The next wave is a mixed bag of Hondurans, Guatemalans, Cubans, Dominicans, Haitians, the list goes on and on. The girl that lives down at the end of the street is Guatemalan. She has worked on and off for us for years. Her daughter is very bright and just got a full boat scholarship to the University of Florida. My wife hired her to help her clean out one of our rentals. She told me something that I had never heard before she said that before she moved to the U.S. and got her citizenship that she had lived in the mountains as part of the resistance. She said beans and rice spoiled because of the humidity. Their primary staple was powdered milk. t

The list goes on and on to your second status in the reverse flow of operation 936 and the cci cost push of inflation targeting.

Cuba model since 1986 as package up your illiterate, criminally insane street drug peddlers of cartel members sent as is mental cases with a map to the sanctuary welfare states of America. Your fools.

This discussion was noted in Gross domestic product (GDP) as the value of a nation's finished domestic goods
and services during a specific time period.
The gross national product (GNP) is the value of all finished goods.

This we discussed also as the usual suspects.

Locally 44 percent of beans are in.

Only 33% of corn planting was completed compared to a 73% five-year average.

Not a new issue locally for some.

We discussed this two years ago.
