Great... now that we agree on a thing, people will call me a boot-licker.

Interesting how most differences in opinion distill down into how far out on the time horizon to set our gaze.

The climate catastrophists would say we need to sacrifice now to prevent suffering in the future. It's a medium-term focus looking at the next couple hundred years.

Putin's time horizon is millennia, where what's sacrificed is living with the consequences of our actions until mastering them and advancing human capability in the process.

Many (most?) catastrophists have an idealized conception of primitive hunter/gatherer societies and believe humanity should have no impact on nature. They believe tribal living was the pinnacle of humanity, and where it should return to.

It's looking like I'll be making a Boise drive tomorrow, so I'll queue up some interesting things to listen to.

Boise is my destination if I need to bug out. It was the third largest city in the West in the 1800s.

Else the Southern counties accede to Greater Idaho; then it's Coos Bay.

Oregon has been Californicated.

Only in the cities, last I was there. Not unlike NORCAL being a republican stronghold.

I found this to be legitimately terrifying:
TUCKER: Thatís shocking to me. No one from the White House has been in contact with you?

PUTIN: Thatís right. No one has called since we congratulated Mr. Biden on his election victory. Itís puzzling to us that communications are colder now than during the Cold War.

I attempted to listen, but Twitter is requiring me, no joke, an 8-series verification that I'm not a bot. It has me summing dice values, except I don't provide the answer, I have to sift through the images to find the one that matches the given value.

Can't believe anyone uses Twitter when it takes half an hour of proving you're not a bot. I'd say being unwilling to put up with that BS is proof.

I've posted zero things and provided no input, so why do they care if I'm a bot anyhow?

If you do get though, let us know if the State of the Nation transcript is legit.

Everyone I know using X never logs out, but seriously my population sample is really small.

I'm monitoring https://tuckercarlson.com/ but it's not up there yet.

In other news; where once little furry mammals scurried around under the feet of massive dinosaurs, today we humans watch the battles between corporations. Elon Musk Declares WAR on Disney | LEAKS Internal Disney Document | Funds Gina Carano LAWSUIT!

S, yeah.

I listened on tuckercarlson.com/the-vladimir-putin-interview/.

Transcript was malinformative.

Boise better than Twitter?

Just got home from Boise an hour ago, and just got the Tweets working on my laptop... don't have the energy to listen to a 2hr interview at the moment.

My hasty trip meant I didn't curate anything in particular to listen to. Daily Scott Adams, a few episodes of Dark Horse podcast. Listened to a discussion between Dave Rubin and Dr. Drew. Vivek talks to Dana White (didn't know who Dana was prior). Some Bari Weiss (Honestly). Some Lex Friedman podcasts.
