r-selected Values – Socialized Medicine

To the rabbits, individuals are value-less:

A girl who died of leukemia was given a final send off after her friends signed her casket with loving messages on January 30.

Laura Hillier got to experience a few normal childhood milestones like graduating high school and getting her senior year book signed before she died on January 20.

Laura might have experienced a few more milestones if a Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, hospital had been able to accommodate a bone marrow transplant for the young woman.

Numerous donors were a match with Laura and ready to donate, but Hamilton’s Juravinski Hospital didn’t have enough beds in high-air-pressure rooms for the procedure.

Hospital staff told her they had about 30 patients with potential donors, but the means to only do about five transplants a month.

It seems it is always the sweet girls who end up sick.

To K-strategists, every life is priceless. You can literally get your dog a bone marrow transplant in America tomorrow if it gets a similar cancer like lymphoma, because K-strategist dog owners judge their furry loved one’s lives worth the cost, and they built the machinery to treat every case on demand through a capitalist system. Not only will we K-strategists try to save every human – we try to save every loved animal too.

To r-strategists, uniform mortality applied to all the rabbits randomly and equally is perfectly acceptable. This girl was just a small piece of collateral damage on the path to the leftist utopia. They are so stupid they can’t even see the grossly apparent majesty of all they seek to destroy – even when you show them pictures of the innocent girls they killed. If you support socialized medicine, you support killing girls just like this. Think about that.

It is exactly like Bill Whittle’s example of the antelopes on the plains. To the r-strategist antelope it is fine if every so often a lion swoops in and grabs an antelope. They will accept that happily because they don’t have the brain circuitry to love, or to be appalled at the loss. But not us.

K-strategist antelopes will get together and formulate a plan. It won’t be easy. It may kill a bunch of us. But the next time that lion shows up we are going to do whatever it takes to make sure that lion is gored on our antlers, and none of our people are ever taken by that lion again. We won’t write off one precious life. Nothing is as much an expression of the K-strategists superiority as their inability to give up on any member of their clan, and the pure love which underlies that.

Along those lines, you don’t see him publicize it, but…

The private Boeing 727 of real estate tycoon Donald Trump arrived from Los Angeles at LaGuardia Airport Tuesday morning, carrying aboard an Orthodox Jewish child with a rare and still undiagnosed breathing illness.

The child, Andrew Ten, age 3, arrived with his parents — accompanied by three nurses who attend to him around the clock — to try to seek medical help in the New York area…

Commercial airlines refused to fly the child because he could not travel without an elaborate life-support system, which includes a portable oxygen tank, a suction machine, a breathing bag and an adrenaline syringe.

Donald is a K-strategist, with all the attendant virtues. It is actually quite impressive given how bathed in free resource availability he is, and how easy it would have been for him to fall to the dark side.

K-selection Approaches – Banking at the Edge?

Economic Collapse Blog thinks the time is nigh:

… a major banking collapse was coming to Europe, and now it is finally unfolding. Let’s start with Deutsche Bank… Overall, the stock price is now down a staggering 36 percent since 2016 began, and Deutsche Bank credit default swaps are going parabolic…

In addition to Deutsche Bank, the list of other “too big to fail” banks in Europe that appear to be in very serious trouble includes Commerzbank, Credit Suisse, HSBC and BNP Paribas. Just about every major bank in Italy could fall on that list as well, and Greek bank stocks lost close to a quarter of their value on Monday alone. Financial Armageddon has come to Europe, and the entire planet is going to feel the pain…

Credit Suisse is the most important bank in Switzerland, and they announced a fourth quarter loss of 5.8 billion dollars. The stock price has fallen 34 percent year to date, and many are now raising questions about the continued viability of the bank.

The danger is that beneath the machine is a derivative market of unimaginable size that depends on the credit-worthiness of everyone involved in it:

Along with credit default swaps and other exotic instruments, the total notional derivatives value is about $1.5 quadrillion – about 20% more than in 2008, beyond what anyone can conceive, let alone control if unexpected turmoil strikes.

The late Bob Chapman predicted it. So does Paul Craig Roberts. It could “destroy Western civilization,” he believes. Financial deregulation turned Wall Street into a casino with no rules except unrestrained making money. Catastrophic failure awaits. It’s just a matter of time.

Ellen Brown calls the “derivatives casino…a last-ditch attempt to prop up a private pyramid scheme” – slowly crumbling under its own weight.

For years, Warren Buffett called derivatives “financial time bombs” – for economies and ordinary people.

Unless collateralized or guaranteed, their worth depends on the creditworthiness of counter-parties.

Eliminate the credit-worthiness of enough of those entities, and much of that wealth could evaporate, which will further reduce credit worthiness of others. With $1.5 quadrillion in wealth, a not-so-large slice of that pie can have a massive effect.

There is a tendency to think this is just same shit, different day, but on Free Republic, one insider thinks differently:

The collapse of the banks in Europe is dragging down stock prices all over the continent.
It’s also dragging down stock prices in the U.S.

Won’t say who I work for, but I work in the Banking Sector (High Wealth) and our stock price has dropped just over $21 recently.

We had a near record Q4/2015. The January equity plunge has so scared/concerned our Senior Management that the announcement went out last Thursday that all salaries are frozen until at least October, we have a hiring freeze (big deal, we’ve had that for five+ years now..) and we’re cutting consultants left and right. Layoff’s are coming and non-mission critical / non regulatory requirement projects are being slashed.

It’s BAD. Whatever’s coming is a big bowl of BAD. We didn’t get these kinds of cuts in 2008/2009.

Frankly, it’s obvious that our Senior Management is starting to panic, and that’s making me nervous.

My feeling is the real collapse is a decade or more away, and it will be a decade or longer affair, possibly including major war and plague. But in between now and then, we need a major correction to push everything down quickly and then allow for one last bubble of enthusiasm that will let the eggheads milk the last little bits of what is left in the system. Without that correction we would just stagnate as everyone pulls everything they have out of the system slowly, and everything heads down gradually.

Democrats know that correction is coming, and that is why they didn’t run a credible candidate this time around. They know coming on the heels of Obama, they will get blamed for the downturn, and the inevitable passing of $24 trillion in national debt. The interesting thought is, what level of bad could be so bad that they would just surrender the race for the highest office in the land?

My guess is plan A would be to wait until Trump or Cruz take over, and then they pull the rug out, to keep from sullying Obama. The one bug in the system is everyone knows that is the plan, and since the eggheads want to beat the rabble out of the markets, the eggheads may have to pull the plug early to get out first.

The game is figuring out exactly when it begins.

New Hampshire Supports A Ban On Muslim Immigration

This is in-grouping:

According to the New Hampshire exit polls, a full 66% of Republican voters back a “ban on Muslims from entering the U.S.” This obviously is good news for Donald Trump, who proposed a temporary ban on foreign Muslims entering the country until our government is in a better position to avoid another Sacramento terror attack. The female jihadist who committed that terror attack was here on a fiance visa.

Trump’s best strategy would be identifying politically incorrect K-strategist initiatives which the GOPe would stand against, and then advocating for them aggressively. He’s hit immigration, torturing terrorists, and Muslims. From federal waste that benefits ACORN-like organizations, to National Concealed Carry, to attacks on #Blacklivesmatters, to wasteful federal offices nobody has the stones to touch, there are lots of opportunities to attack politically correct issues the GOPe won’t go near, and each will highlight the difference between Trump and everyone else – that he isn’t the establishment.

Turkey’s Erdogan Blackmailed Europe For Billions

ZeroHedge has a story on it here:

Following unfavorable election results last June, Erdogan plunged the country into civil war be restarting a long simmering battle with the PKK and proceeded to crack down on journalists and anyone else critical of the ruling AKP. Ultimately, new elections were called and AKP put up a stronger showing, effectively paving the way for Erdogan to rewrite Turkey’s constitution and install an executive presidency.

But Erdogan’s bullying isn’t confined to his domestic political agenda. Greek media has obtained an internal memo which suggests the Turkish strongman effectively blackmailed the EU by demanding cash payments in exchange for efforts to curb the flow of migrants into Western Europe. “We can open the doors to Greece and Bulgaria anytime and we can put the refugees on buses,” Erdogan allegedly said, on the way to demanding $3 billion per year in aid.

Just over a week later the dumbass grossly reduced his leverage when he shot down a Russian plane, meaning if everyone turned their back on him, Putin would have gladly dispatched him just for show.

I’m of two minds on that. The EU Green-lighting Putin to give Erdogan a Polonium cocktail for the murdered Russian pilot would be satisfying, but I see that leading everyone else down the road to becoming too r – too reliant on Russia bringing their balls to our battles. Sooner or later we need to begin taking our own trash out, or we will end up adapting into the cowardly r-manipulator ourselves.

This is another reason I do not fear the collapse. How satisfying it would be to hear of how Erdogan was found dead the next morning, and his replacement was some Mubarak-like puppet who would cease giving everyone shit. There is something viscerally discomfiting during times of r, when you see craven exploiters who literally deserve nothing rewarded with riches beyond anyone’s imagination, marching away with their blackmailed wealth while laughing at the stupidity of our side.

If Trump wants to perfect his comments about there being so much winning if he was President, he should point out all the losers currently playing us who would finally get their due. I think Americans want, even more than to win, to see the deserving evil finally punished with loss.

Regardless, Apocalypse will eventually punish, if Trump does not.

Pentagon Must Consider Climate Change Before Doing Anything

More madness that only happens when there is no threat and resources are free:

The Pentagon is ordering the top brass to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies.

A new directive’s theme: The U.S. Armed Forces must show “resilience” and beat back the threat based on “actionable science.”

It says the military will not be able to maintain effectiveness unless the directive is followed. It orders the establishment of a new layer of bureaucracy — a wide array of “climate change boards, councils and working groups” to infuse climate change into “programs, plans and policies.”

This makes perfect sense when resources are free, and you have no threat. The problems will only arise as you approach a time when resources are going to be non-existent, and threats may be everywhere.

The most unfortunate aspect of the r/K mechanism is that it adapts brains to times of r, and once r-adapted, they are totally incapable of acting with foresight of the return of K-selective conditions. Here, it is highly likely that once the US National debt passes $24 Trillion, in roughly 4 years, an economic and governmental collapse will be unavoidable. Having all the extra billions this climate nonsense is going to waste saved up in a secret account could feed a lot of destitute Americans at that time, and ameliorate a lot of pain in the collapse. But as would be expected in times of r, it will all be wasted now, never to be seen again.

Then again, what would life be without a little Apocalypse?

Kurds Are r-strategists

Tom Kratman has a great piece on his experiences with the people which seems to indicate so:

Most people shy away from or are at least ignorant of the reason so many of those adorable kids died. It’s simple; the Kurds starved them to death themselves. It’s a cultural imperative among them, when times get hard, to let the little girls die of starvation (first, of course), and then the little boys…

Interestingly, before we even arrived in our area, there had been an incident – a firefight resulting in several Iraqi dead – between the British Marines and some Iraqi troops guarding one of Hussein’s palaces in that part of Iraq. I asked a British officer about it and his answer was to the effect that, “As near as we can figure, as one of our patrols was passing, two Kurds, from different positions but surely with coordination, took a shot each, close to simultaneously. One shot was at our patrol, the other at the Iraqi on the gate to the palace. Both shots missed, but the Iraqis and our men, thinking they were under attack, reacted as one would expect. We were just a lot better shots, better led, than they were…

And then there was the day the Kurds demanded to be paid. Paid? Why, yes, we were providing free food, free medical care, free shelter, and free security, but they saw no reason not to be paid for unloading the free food and other goodies.

It is an amazing piece that gives you a real flavor for the Kurds which you don’t get from the media.

The case described is interesting, in that it speaks to a population which appears to have been heavily rabbitized at some point, and having been so, the rabbitization perpetuated itself by using rabbit strategy to avoid conflict, exploit others, and opportunistically and shamelessly seize whatever it could to avoid being exposed to K-selection. They even starve their kids to death during hard times, thus meaning kids who make it to maturity more often than not survived because they were bred during times of plenty, and thus they will perpetuate the rabbity ways of the clan.

The dangers of allowing the rabbits to breed in your society.

Do We Really Elect Our Leaders?

Interesting:

Keane Schwarz is certain he knows the outcome of the vote in his precinct: He was the lone caucusgoer in Woodbury County No. 43.

But the Iowa Democratic Party’s final results state that Hillary Clinton won one county delegate and Bernie Sanders received zero.

“I voted for Bernie,” Schwarz, 36, of Oto, told The Des Moines Register. “It was really suspicious – I’m actually pretty irate about it.”

Some complaints that Iowa Democrats have shared with the Register about discrepancies in caucus results appear to be valid.

There is a lot more of that in the article.

I’ve long wondered if we elect our leaders. Years back, I left the polling place on election day, and forty feet down the street was a phone company service truck parked by the side of the road at the base of a telephone pole. Out of the mostly-closed back doors of the truck some wires weaved their way up to the wires on the pole, where I assume they were spliced in. Back when I was acclimated to normal neighborhood activity, I had never seen a phone company truck stopped and wired into a pole before. I though it looked strange, but just filed it away as the phone company doing some work.

I later learned that all the poll results from the polling place were transferred to a central tabulation center directly over a phone line using a modem, leading me to wonder if that truck could have intercepted one out-going total on the phone line from the polling place and replaced it with another total which was sent along the phone line to the tabulation center. I’ve often wondered since, if I had stopped and popped the back of the truck open and said, “Surprise!,” as the flash on a polaroid camera popped, what the reaction inside would have been. Sadly Democrats weren’t nearly as crushed that day as I had dreamed of in the months running up to it.

After Obama beat Romney in the last election so easily, my suspicions only increased, and now we see this in a primary. If Trump consistently underperforms the polls by large margins, we will know considerably more.

Obviously as we transition fully to touchscreen computer voting all over the country, the risks of fraud will only increase further. If it was happening then, it will definitely be happening in the future, and to a much greater degree.

Don’t assume anything is as it seems. What I see out there is weirder than I would ever have imagined, and as crazy as the rabbits are, I only see things getting weirder.

Where is my Apocalypse?

Donald Trump Rises In New Hampshire

Donald is on the move again:

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s lead widened in New Hampshire just days before the primary, according to the latest CNN/WMUR tracking poll.

Thirty-three percent of likely Republican primary voters said they support Trump, giving the billionaire a 17-point lead over his closest GOP rival. Trump gained 5 points from a similar tracking poll last week.

Trump now has more than double the support of Sen. Marco Rubio, who came in second with 16 percent support.

Sen. Ted Cruz has 14 percent for third place.

As a general rule, Donald surges when he does one thing – ally himself with the insurgency and fight for its ideals more ferociously than anyone. When he espouses more conservative ideals than everyone else, and attack the enemies of the conservative insurgents, his poll numbers soar.

He’s going to build a massive wall – and make Mexico pay for it. He will ban Muslim immigration. He is going to fight a trade war with China. He will bomb the shit out of ISIS. Hillary is going to prison. Jeb is an establishment loser who supports illegal immigrants over Americans. The Republican donor class is opposed to him. Last night he promised he is going to bring back waterboarding, and a “helluva lot worse.” My heart fluttered. Then he called out the establishment for stacking the audience with big Cuckservative donors. He even showed kindness and class in standing with Carson, after Carson missed his cue to come out on stage at the beginning.

When Donald stagnates is when he is diverted from that assault on our enemies, and he begins attacking other politicians who his conservative insurgent supporters feel any sense of kinship with. When he attacks any conservative candidate who any conservative insurgents feel fondness for, his meteoric rise slows down. Part of that is negative emotions arising from seeing him attacking candidates some feel are fellow insurgent warriors, and part of that probably comes from seeing him behave as other politicians act.

What I would propose to future conservative insurgent candidates, is that the conservative insurgency tends to be very in-group oriented, and as a result the potential voters within that pool tend to develop feelings of fondness for any candidate they feel supports their cause. To that end, even if these voters adopt one candidate as their own, they still like other insurgent candidates.

Where internecine fighting breaks out among insurgent candidates, it has a tendency to create subtle perceptions of negativity in insurgent-voter amygdalae which attach themselves to all involved candidates. Those subtle perceptions hurt viability and voter support for anyone near the conflict. Our enemies are liberals, non-Americans who want American wealth, enemies of our nation, and the Cucks in the Republican establishment who support, tacitly or otherwise, all of those. Anyone who is perceived to be allied against those forces is our friend.

Now practically, negative advertising works, but it only works if it is detached from the candidate who launches it, or if the target attacked is universally disliked or not known by the target audience. Create an ad with the candidate themselves attacking a slightly liked opponent directly, and it’s efficacy will be greatly reduced. When you have the candidate themselves directly attack other insurgent conservatives who the target voters may actually like a lot, the costs are as high as the gains.

The key in a primary is to identify who your potential voters see as an enemy, and attack that enemy as vigorously as possible, while avoiding engaging in any direct attacks on any candidates who your potential supporters may like, or have positive feelings for.

As an additional benefit, not only is this good for the individual candidacy, it is good for the cause.

In other news, the candidate who said illegal immigration was an act of love we all had to bend over for is on the verge of calling it quits.

Frustration inside Bush world has begun to spill into open view, with even the most outspoken family loyalists admitting it may soon be time to move on.

With the New Hampshire primary just days away and polls showing him still trailing Marco Rubio, there is an increasing sense that Jeb Bush is running out of time to demonstrate strength.

Many donors and influential supporters, bound by a deep and longstanding connection to the patrician clan, say they will remain with Bush no matter what. Yet others, deeply distressed by the rise of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz and eager for the Republican Party to rally around a mainstream candidate with viability, say they have come to terms with Bush’s long odds and the possibility they will eventually get behind someone else.

Here is a candidate who purposely took the side of foreign law-breakers over Americans in a party of patriots, and who attacked the one guy who aggressively swore he’d support America over foreigners. I actually think Jeb’s campaign is more worthy of analysis than Donald’s, because it took much more overt effort to blow all the advantages Bush entered the race with, than it took for Donald to exploit his strengths. I doubt we will ever see any candidate enter a race so far ahead and then purposely torpedo his entire campaign so fully.

Jeb is awesome at Apocalypse. Just imagine if we had given him the reins of the country.

French Rabbits Order Police To Attack Pegida

Lots of anarchy in France, Czechoslovakia, and Amsterdam as K-amygdalae fire up:

Police in Calais have dispersed a rowdy anti-migrant protest with tear gas after clashes with protesters and detained several far-right demonstrators.

Around 150 militants from the anti-Islam, anti-immigration group PEDIGA gathered Saturday at the northern French city chanting slogans like: “We must not let Calais die!”

Calais has been a focal point for migrants who want to slip into Britain via the Channel Tunnel. Several thousand have been living there in slums.

The protesters Saturday had ignored a ruling by the local prefect to ban such demonstrations. One of them, former soldier Christian Piquemal, said he was “shocked by the behavior of police forces.”

Due to the rabbit’s cowardice, their overly-triggerable amygdalae have adopted the fantasy that peace with the invaders will be easy, if everyone just gives them whatever they want. As a result, when someone proposes that maybe the migrants ought to be sent home before they get violent, the rabbit’s amygdalae light up with horror at the thought of the violence and they act out to silence the voices speaking such horrors. Or rather, they tell the police forces to do it for them. French police, rabbitized themselves for now, comply, because it is easier than risking their jobs. As they begin to encounter migrant violence, and their amygdalae develop, that will change.

This is why I link narcissists with leftists. They both need, on an emotional level, to see a certain reality around them. If the reality they need doesn’t match the reality around them, they will delude themselves, and mentally construct a fantasy reality in their mind which doesn’t freak them out as much as the real thing. National debt doesn’t matter. We need every government office. Businesses can just be taxed so everyone can have a living wage. Migrants from war-torn areas which have never integrated historically will do it this time.

The thing is, they adopt the delusion because the reality is emotionally intolerable to them. As a result, those who threaten to expose them to reality by simply speaking truth will trigger unimaginable emotional forces. The leftist literally has no choice. Given their mental frailty, they will silence the truth-speakers by any means necessary. That is why the rabbits are so genuinely dangerous, and why you see instances of mass slaughter throughout history produced by the left.

What is something to ponder is that I am not sure we have ever seen such a rabbitized leadership, save maybe for the end of the Roman Empire. Even then, I doubt the dopamine the Roman leadership was exposed to could compare with smartphones, Avatar, the internet, Call of Duty, EverQuest, and the Bacon Bomb Explosion Burger – all of which would have blown away the average Roman Senator.

Similarly I suspect even by the lax standards of that time a lot of the shit we see today would have been judged batshit crazy back then, from Caitlyn Jenner to transageism. Add to it a debt-fueled economic and governmental collapse that is set to easily eclipse just about anything short of Rome, and the rabbits on this go around could end up doing anything.

Watch out.

Live Zika Virus Found In Saliva – Kissing Transmission?

This is disturbing:

Scientists identified the Zika virus in the saliva and urine of two infected patients, a top Brazilian biomedical research institution said on Friday, prompting its president to urge pregnant women not to kiss strangers just as local carnival celebrations begin…

These developments come just as Rio kicks off its annual carnival celebrations, a raucous five-day bacchanalia known for street parties and lots of alcohol and kissing. Some revelers even keep track of the number of complete strangers they kiss.

If it is in saliva, it is in stool. What we don’t know is how long it can survive outside the host, and if it can infect humans through hand to mouth. So far the known transmission risk has been expanding from mosquito-borne, to blood-transfusion-borne, to sexually transmitted, to possibly kissing-transmitted. Nothing says it will stop there. You could end up with a weak hand to mouth, like a less transmissible norovirus, favoring hosts with reduced disgust and limited tendencies toward cleanliness.

It is also worth noting that some viruses are classified as lysogenic. A lytic virus like the flu invades cells, reproduces, and eventually bursts the cell, freeing reproduced viral particles as it kills the infected cell. A lysogenic virus, like a Herpes virus, invades cells, cut’s the host cell DNA with a little restriction enzyme, and then splices its viral DNA into the cut in the host cell’s genome, where it then hides from the immune system until the immune response cools down.

Some host cells then enter a lytic phase and reproduce virus, killing their host cells, but not all. Some cells just hang around, reproducing normally (and unwittingly producing more cells carrying the virus’s hidden DNA). Periodically, biochemical signals like stress then trigger cells in the hibernating lysogenic phase of the infection, leading them to pop their viral DNA out into the cell, beginning the reproduction process, and the virus then erupts into a lytic phase.

That yields an infection that periodically re-emerges for the life of the host, like a herpes infection, infecting cells and shedding viral particles to infect others. It would be possible for females infected with such a lysogenic virus to carry it, as well as the risk of having deformed babies, for the rest of their lives.

What I have not heard is if Zika has a lysogenic capability. If Zika is exclusively lytic, it will burn out and cease to be a problem, probably very soon, as everyone develops immunity. If it is lysogenic on the other hand, then it could be a very long-lasting and costly problem without an easy solution, which will also likely prove resistant to vaccination, as have other lysogenic viruses like the Herpes simplex viruses and Epstein Barr.

The panic I see makes me wonder if researches know something we don’t.

You can see how with Carnival, and the upcoming global sex-fest called the Olympics scheduled for Brazil, this virus could preferentially remove a number of sex-driven, disgust-suppressed leftist genetic predispositions from our populations world-wide, even though it isn’t lethal to the host, or even uniformly sterilizing.

If a lethal pathogen emerges (and I would bet one will during the collapse), you can see how quickly leftism could disappear from the face of the earth, without anyone lifting a finger. Many leftists would be converted to conservative psychologies just by the threat of mortality and still others, resistant to such adaptation, would be killed outright.

As I’ve said, the Renaissance was not a chance event. Y. pestis cleaned out the r-strategists.

It will happen again. The only thing we don’t know is when.
