Politics aside, I predicted the extreme monopolization of energy like on a chess end game especially when on one side we had cryptomining farms buying out energy plants and on the other side we had the green new deal being pushed hard.
OK, I'm one of those Luddites who don't believe you can put up strings of numbers on the internet and have it magically turn into money. I know, backwards thinking, right? That said crypto mining is bad for the environment. As for the green "new deal", haven't you been watching the weather reports? That should tell you that maybe the "green new deal", is late in arriving. Contrariwise, we have a pack of power mad baboons claiming it's "fake science".
As for Russia, the running joke there is, "it's a gas station with nukes". With respect to Ukraine, we aren't involved in WWIII, Russia is exposed for what it is, a predator state with not all that much to back it out, save for veiled nuclear threats..
The question becomes, it we don't give the Ukrainians aid, will Russia stop there? I doubt it. The next thing you'd know, is that we will be fighting WWIII on Polish soil. Poland is a member of NATO.
A president's job is a dirty, thankless task, of taking the blame for everything that everybody else has , either with intent, or (??) inadvertently caused.
The inflation here in the US, is not as severe as Great Britain, and it's worse in other countries.
As for China, they're in the process of catching up with the US They now have 3 carrier groups to "project power". We have either 12 or 13 more powerful entities.
Newton said, "for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Hence why you'll hear all these threats coming out of China about "hypersonic missiles". Is it a bluff? Are you absolutely certain we're not working on them too at "Area 51", or maybe the Lockheed "Skunk Works"? It's all jab and feint, or global chess in some cases. If we fail to aid Ukraine, China will absolutely feel they can get away with invading Taiwan. But, TSMC is now, more or less, a US company. I would think that would deter, more so than encourage, China to invade.
At the end of the day, I'm so thankful for a government that allows us to argue at Techspot or play video games all day, in relative safety.
Trump managed to make us a laughing stock on the world stage, which Biden, (whatever you may think of him), has largely reversed.
