Final newspaper endorsement count: Clinton 57, Trump 2

“Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has received fewer endorsements from the editorial boards of the nation's largest newspapers than any major-party presidential candidate in history."

"Among the top 100 largest newspapers in America, just two — the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville — endorsed Trump. The Review-Journal is owned by Sheldon Adelson, the casino magnate who has spent millions trying to elect Trump.”

“Four newspapers have taken the unusual step of explicitly advising readers to vote against Trump, even if they cannot bring themselves to recommend Clinton.”

So what are we going to talk about after this election is over?

I guess we will all know for sure in twenty four hours from now.

RE: Trump will be president
Trumps comments today seem to be a tacit nod to his supporters that victory is unlikely

That was pretty much my take on it. I don't necessarily assume a collapse is imminent, but I believe the chances are significant enough to warrant having a backup plan to my first world job and retirement plan. And if it doesn't happen, I'll consider it as an investment in a hobby. Some people like cars. I like shooting, foraging, and gardening. My prospective forest garden will be an entertaining way to spend some time with my kids whether it becomes relevant to actual survival or not. Same with my son's newly found interest in archery.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Yours and mine both.

I lived in Venezuela as an ex-pat 18 months before Hugo Chavez came to power and 18 months after. It was dangerous before and an outright war-zone afterwards. I was caught in impromptu violent demonstrations, found myself in the middle of a revolt with the army using tear gas and live fire. Shootings and armed robbery were commonplace...I don’t know how I made to out unscathed.

I have no doubt you’ve seen worse but for me it was a life lesson on just how thin the veneer of civilization is.

My experiences in the Iranian Revolution were much the same.

Supreme Court Justices, or the lack thereof.

I’m very confident I could feed my family from the sea. Between catching lobster and spearing fish we would eat pretty well. I can easily configure and reroute my gutter system coming off my metal roof into a cistern. Veggies and fruits would be a bit of a challenge but I can easily grow bananas in my yard. For all else I still have Amazon Prime. Big Grin
