This is my idea in response to Fermi’s question Where Are They? to speculations that the Galaxy must be teaming with not only life but intelligent civilizations. So what could cause so many intelligent civilizations to be missing or to go extinct? Self destruction via war?, pollution and environmental self destruction? or the fact the the universe has many high energy event that would sterilize a volume of surrounding space. These volumes devoid of life are the empty volumes like the hollow spaces in a block of Swiss Cheese so hence the idea of a Swiss Cheese Galaxy. Since we can list the kinds of high energy events and calculate the volume they would sterilize based on the distance is would take this energy to dissipate to a survivable level this is a tractable problem for astrophysics.
In other words we know enough to test the Swiss Cheese galaxy theory in a statistical sense from knowing the various kind of high energy events, the chronology of stellar evolution that result in these high energy events, stellar densities from sky surveys, and the ability to calculate the distances of surrounds space where life would be extinguished. I don’t have the knowledge or calculation abilities to do these calculations but at least I have a theory that might answer Fermi’s question Where are they? or the related question what might have happened to them.
Since the Galactic Center has the greatest stellar density and the greatest probability of associated high energy events the level of sterilization there must are greater than in the lower stellar density of the galactic arms or the even less dense stellar population in the space between the galactic arms. The Earth being in a galactic arm may simply have been lucky in escaping a nearby high energy event which could cause the extinction of terrestrial life!
So this is Dave’s conjecture about one factor in the Drake Equation. It remains for much better qualified people to undertake the statistical calculations involved to see if this conjecture has some merits in a statistical universe.
Branson, Missouri, Aug 6, 2018, APWalmart Declares Sharia Law.
In the wake of the supreme court ruling, Walmart today converted to Corporate Islam and declared Sharia law in all 12 million stores. Women entering the store must be bagged in Hefty Double Ply Trash Bags, $14.99 per dozen. Aisles 12 through 14 will be controlled by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Tuscaloosa, while the back of the Store will be held by Al Qaeda of East Tennessee.
Shoplifters will bear the loss of a hand, or forearm in the case of attempted theft of a bass fishing boat, while Jews who rub up against bagged women in the checkout line will suffer an on-site Frontier Bris.
Five times a day, all employees and customers will stop everything, drop everything and pull out their prayer rugs; Montsanto non-slip bath mats @ $19.99 in several pastel colors, with festive flower imprints, an additional $4.95. Rubberized, non-toxic forehead tees, will protect those delicate craniums not used to hitting the floor.
During this observance, as they bend over, Christians will be allowed to make armpit farts and yell “Who stepped on a duck?!!!” just for laughs. Non-believers will be stoned. We suggest “Trainwreck Indica at $45.00 the eighth, including a free joint of your choice.
Women suspected of adultery, marriage to poor men unacceptable to family, driving or double parking will be buried up to the neck in dedicated parking spaces and stoned by Cy Young Award Winner and retired sub mental Senator Jim Bunning, using Armstrong polished river rocks @49.50 per pound, just the thing for lining your garden path, and burying non-believers.
In fact, Walmart is declaring itself a religion, just like the Mormons and will no longer pay taxes to the Federal Government, who is just the Great Satan anyway.
Long live the Corporate Caliphate, and oh, yeah…Death to America!
Climate change and nuclear war. These are really existential threats. And what’s happening now is just astonishing. If media were functioning seriously, every day the lead headline would be this amazing fact—that in the entire world, every country is trying or committed to doing at least something. One country—one!—the most powerful country in history—is committed to trying to destroy the climate. Not just pulling out of the efforts of others, but maximizing the use of the most destructive means.
There’s been nothing like this in history. It’s kind of an outrageous statement, but it happens to be true, that the Republican Party is the most dangerous organization in human history. Nobody, not even the Nazis, was dedicated to destroying the possibility of organized human life. It’s just missing from the media. In fact, if you read, say, the sensible business press, the Financial Times, BusinessWeek, any of them, when they talk about fossil fuel production, the articles are all just about the prospect for profit. Is the U.S. moving to number one and what are the gains? Not that it’s going to wipe out organized human life. Maybe that’s a footnote somewhere. It’s pretty astonishing.

December Seventh, 1941 “A Day That Will Live in Infamy.”
Naval Intelligence claims Pearl Harbor attacked by Japanese.
The President is dismissive.
“Could’ve been Japanese, could’ve been other people. Could be a 400 pound Guatemalan who came across the boarder from Mexico. Nobody knows, folks, nobody knows.”
“We know somebody bombed our ships,” said Hamilton Fish, Republican leader of Congress and prominent Isolationist. “But did they actually sink them? We have no proof. “Could be, they just sank themselves when the tide came up.”
The president’a sons Kermit and Franklin Junior denied meeting with the Japanese envoy at a sushi joint in downtown Bethesda
“If we had met him, which we didn’t, we definitely didn’t talk about our hotels in Tokyo, Kyoto and Nagasaki. We just asked him, if it was possible, when they break our naval code, for them to just sort of give us the intercepts, to use against Clare Booth Luce, that’s all. Oh, and could we shoot some of their endangered white tigers?”
Fritz Kuhn, the president’s adviser and, former leader of the German American Bund denied connection to a congressional fifth column of isolationists working with the Nazis.
“We have nothing to do with Republican Isolationists who, like us, are working to destroy American democracy from within. They’re just using all our efforts for their own purposes; preventing universal healthcare, destroying the New Deal, isolating America, and connecting with other right-wing mafias. They’re doing all this like it was just their own ideas and not even giving us credit for helping them. They have no integrity. It just makes me sick. We’re both on the same side, here, folks. There’s no use denying it. They’re just trying to escape the consequences of their actions by pretending, you know, that they’re really, really dumb.
Harry Hopkins, son in law and foreign advisor, broke in…
“It’s not treason, just a misunderstanding. We acknowledge that there is a race war, a clash of civilizations that will determine who rules the world, and the American people, the white ones, that is, should not have let the previous administration take back our Nazi summer camps in New Jersey and Long Island. We must lift the sanctions on war materials shipping to Germany. And cut out that Lend Lease stuff and those old destroyers. Oh, and I’ll be attending their rally in Madison Square Garden. it’s a fun time! Lots of banners and marching around.
Said FDR, “I know Tojo. We were on a radio broadcast together and we’re good pals, although I never met him.”
Previous Republican President Hoover said, I met Herr Hitler. I looked into his soul, and it’s pretty dark in there, but trust me you can trust him. I know I do. And I’m not stupid,” he added.
See, that’s all you need to know about Hitler, added Neville Chamberlain, “We have peace in our time, a piece of France, a piece of the Sudetenland, practically all of Poland…”
The President was pressed at his Roosevelt Island Resort.
“So I had dealings in Tokyo? There were some geishas of course and nobody has better geishas than me. Nobody has more beautiful geishas, except they have tiny tits, so they can’t be tens, maybe six and a halfs… so I grab some of them by the whoo haas, I just walked up and stuck my tongue right down their throats to their uvulas… You can do that if you’re famous like me. The golden showers I don’t think I did that. They don’t have pictures of that, do they. Those guys are always taking pictures. You can’t get them away from our naval installations. they’re just fascinated by big ships, do you think?”
Press Secretary, Sean Joe Goebbels, speaking from the Presidential Yacht, “Wow-I’m-Rich!” in the Roosevelt River, (previously the Potomac), corrected that.
“Whatever he said he meant when he said it. It’s just not operational now. You have to pay attention to something as soon as he says it. It’s only fact for about 10 seconds or so, then another reality kicks in.”
Reacting to a question from Haley Colingwood, he added…
“It’s not true he can’t walk. He could walk if he wanted to. He just doesn’t want to. He wants to swim, and if he’s not near water he can’t swim, can he? So that chair is just there to get him to water and we’re tired of the fake news about that, so I’m not gonna talk to you again. That’s right. I don’t have to talk to you.
An’ don’t take my picture, neither.”
In response to the lying press pressing on the fake news of an attack, the President said again, “Never happened and as far as Pearl Harbor there’s a lot of smoke but no proof, no smoking gun. Some smoking ships, of course, but no gun. You can’t find a gun. I’ve sent people to Hawaii, they haven’t found a gun. They haven’t found a birth certificate, neither. So, no gun, no foul. Lets move on to my Championship Golf course, my steaks and my Roosevelt Institute of Higher Book Learnin’ and Success, Trademark, Copyright Roosevelt Empire, 1941.”
He, waved his arms around a lot, made that circle thing with his fingers and continued.
“Why there aren’t any Japs for miles and miles, just ask Nimitz about that. Everybody knows that my Navy is the best navy in the world. Nobody has a better Navy than me. And I know more about water than all the Admirals combined. I drink lots of it.
No, folks, our Navy is the best. It’s just sailing the wrong way.
European leaders are aghast. Winston Churchill said, “Looks like we can’t count on the Americans anymore, folks. Looks like we’ll have to find those sunlit uplands on our own.”
The President was tweeting now, something that won’t be invented for seventy years. But he was on a Fireside Chat on the radio.
“Golden showers, naw, that’s just like a Shinto thing. Beautiful geishas pissing on my head for the glory of their ancestors. A sign of their great respect for me, don’t you think?”
I mean that’s what they do there, they just drink and drink and then just open their stomachs for fun. I mean you party with them they stay up all night, things tend to get a little weird. You don’t suppose they have pictures do you?”
Elinor remarked at the Hyde Park White House, Championship Golf Course and Rehab Resort. “It’s costing New York millions to protect us from him. But its worth it.
I’m still pissed the secret intelligence service assigned me to him. Should’a been Franco or Stalin, you know, somebody with class. What kind of a honey trap is this? He’s a moron. They could’a used that girl from Monkey Business, one or two of his secretaries or that Marla person, again.
He’s very rich so I just don’t listen. I just like to stand there and glare at him. But, as long as he keeps me in bling and lesbian girlfriends I don’t give a damn, neither should you.”
He was chatting again:
Warm Springs Resort and Waterslide is doing gangbusters.
Of course some of the guests have to be recovered from the bottom of the pool. Polo is a terrible thing. But occupancy has doubled since we took office and you should really try the chocolate cake. It’s just the best. Oh, and Walter Winchell, overrated, from the failing New York Post. He sucks. And, I’m not packing the court, but there’s some Spanish type people in there. Very Unfair. Sad.
And future Bridge Troll J. Edgar Hoover took over the Office of President while FDR was busy chatting away:
“We asked the court to reconsider the ban on Jewish refugees. “They could be spies undermining our Christian-valued nation. They could be Terrorists, look at the Stern Gang. That Issac’s a Bastard. I’ve got a file on him.
They’re doing just fine in those refugee camps, so those are false reports from the international Jewry press. They’re getting showers, they’re hard to keep clean, those Jews, they’re not like us. The Trains run on time, thanks to Hitler and Musso, and they have big ovens, big things to keep them warm in the winters, so you know we don’t need to let more of them in. They’re doing just fine.
He said “Make America Hate Again.”, said Martha Gellhorn speaking from the Winter Press Room, outside of Owlfart Saskatchewan.
Kelly Ann Goebbels demurred.
“Didn’t say hate”,
“Sure he did.”
“Slip of the tongue, then. Or brain.”
“So, he did say it?”
“Did. We have it on film.”
“Did. Did, Did, Didn’t Did!”
“Those of you, wanting the actual truth, you better watch your step.” Kelly said, gnawing on her riding crop and snapping it across her boot.
“Is that a threat?”
“No, it’s minus twelve out there. And I’ll yank your credentials so fast… Now, next question… you there, Hans from Der Sturmer.”
Rinehart Previous, Chief Staff Denier, concurred.
“He said great. You just heard hate, cause you hate us. But we hate you right back double. We’re going to repeal and replace all of you by the way, repeal with extreme prejudice.”
So, the fake news was busy lying, …something about a Great World War, in China and Russia, and Europe and things. In North Africa and the Mediterranean, and the North and South Atlantic. But the Pres. was pretty confused about where all those places were. And if it would hurt his hotel business. Before leaving for golf, he chatted again.
“Reports that American citizens have been rounded up and placed in concentration camps are untrue fake news,” he typed with his very small fingers, They are undocumented illegals or look just like they would if they were. They snuck into the country illegally across the failing and misnamed Pacific Ocean, because I’ve been there and threw up. Very Sad.
So, we’re going to put a big wall up to stop that, and the ocean. A big wall, the greatest wall ever. Nobody builds a Great Wall greater than my Great Wall. Chinese hoax to make American Wall builders non-competitive, folks, believe me. Forget God, forget global warming. I alone can do it. Around the seashore. All around America. And Guam is going to pay for it.
Speaking as an Off-White American, I am done with it. I will no longer self-identify as a unique minority with special insights, grievances and demands of other Hyphenate-Americans. I will have no truck with Black-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Asian-Americans or even Irish-Jewish-Native-Neurotic-Americans.
As a person of color, that color being 5427 on the Sherwin Williams scale, I will not refer to my self as a Beige-American or accept Gyno-Americans, Phallo-Americans, Homo-Americans, or Lesbo-Americans, which anyway should be called Vagetarians as Lesbos is just a no-account island in the Adriatic.
I will no longer refer to my wife and kids, all-left-handed for some reason, as Sinister-Americans, Or my dog as a Canine-American. I will no longer, under my breath, refer to obese people who take the center seat in aircraft and flow into my space as Fatso-Americans…that is beneath me.
Speaking of that, it is wrong to refer to people like Jeff Sessions as Dwarf-Americans, or even as Height-Challenged- Americans. I will no longer call people such as Louie Gomer and Rick Perry Retard-Americans. That word should only be used in orchestration. I will no longer refer to Mitch McConnell as a Turtle-American. Or the Pres as a Psycho-American. One may make one exception for Steve Bannon as a Bridge-Troll-American.
We must all be just Americans because otherwise it’s just going to get too complicated. What if you were actually a Black-Fatso-Lesbo-Sinister-Gyno-Half-Hispanic-Quarter-Asian American?
See where this leads? How would we deal with you? What exactly is your problem? Right now without Government Mandated DNA Testing nobody really knows what they are. Is Derek Jeter black, white or just a Short-Stop-American? Nobody knows.
Until we stop silly-separating ourselves due to our special uniqueness, our complaints, our past and present grievances and our hope for special privileges due to, say, that “slavery thing”, or that Commanche “Genocide” thing or the fact that some people don’t like us, we won’t come together as we must as “One Nation Under a God-American”.
So. Suck it up. You or your ancestors came to the Melting Pot to get melted down into a new identity. American. So Melt.
We know the Russians hacked our emails to elect Donald Trump.
We know we knew this by early summer.
We don’t know why the President, the Democrats and the Campaign took no effective action.
We know that the polls declared that Hilary was winning by a comfortable margin.
Perhaps everyone felt it unnecessary to take strong defensive action in light of that.
When Britain stood alone against the Nazis, America was isolationist; over 85% against entering the war. British Intelligence ran arguably the most successful disinformation campaign of the war. British Agents, including David Ogilvie, the advertising executive, skewed the Roper poll and others to change American attitudes away from isolation and toward an alliance with Britain.
Could the Russians have been playing such a long game? Well, their national pastime is chess.
“What pundits have called the Battle of Facts is nearly over. I expect that the Battle of Governing is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of our civilization. Upon it depends our own American life, and the long continuity of our institutions. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us. Trumpish forces know that they will have to break us or lose the war. If we can stand up to them, all may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if America and its constitution last for a thousand years, men will still say, “This was their finest hour.”

“Why do I have to ask for forgiveness if I’m not making mistakes?”
“I fully think apologizing is a great thing. But you have to be WRONG … I will absolutely apologize sometime in the hopefully distant future if I’m ever wrong.”

In the sixties when we were young and dumb, a lot of us voted for McCarthy. It elected Nixon who started two more secret wars in Cambodia and Laos, and the War on Drugs which has destabilized Mexico and Central America and cost millions of lives and trillions of dollars.
At the turn of this century the dumb voted for Ralph Nader, which got us George Bush, a moron oil scion who enabled the present World Oil War, more tax breaks for the superrich and the Great Republican Depression. All of which cost trillions of dollars and millions of jobs.
In the next election some idiots voted for the Tea Party who promised to stop government from doing anything. This, they did, leading to the current malaise among the populace and a brake on the economy that they now decry.
Now we have a sociopath proto-Hitler and if you waste your vote, as did others in the past, he will help destroy everything you believe in. What kind of self-righteous narcissists would help elect him, and his evil minions?
Gary Johnson is either completely bonkers or has much better weed than I’m smoking. I have learned to smoke it after the interview, not before. This tactic is lost on him. Will he just stick out his tongue to Putin. Thank and imaginary God he has no chance of being elected.
Libertarianism is a right wing cult derived from the John Birch Society by a two-bit conman named LeFebre. They don’t believe the government should stop the banks, Wall Street, the plutocrats or the spoiled children like Romney, Bush and Trump from stealing everything they can get their tiny, greedy hands on. Thieves don’t like regulation or laws except those laws they can use to help hold their ill-gotten gains.
I like Bernie, but he’s not running. The Democrats, being realists, backed Hilary since she is by far the most qualified candidate and an actual Democrat. Bernie was a socialist, with no great legislative achievements. He has some great ideas, which are now adopted into the Democratic platform. You won. Take a bow. Vote for a qualified technician to run the country. Work to elect Bernie next.
Hilary is fine. How would you behave if you’d been viciously targeted with lies for your entire adult life? You don’t like Hilary because you have been brainwashed by decades of Fox/Drudge/TalkRadio propaganda and the Right Wing Washington Industrial Lying Complex.
This other guy is just an Orange Hitler. Only Hitler had a brain. And look up “Sociopath” on wikipedia. You have the same choice those good Germans had. Be a responsible citizen. And stop fucking around.
