    ^^^ Ginkgo is working on bioengineered, environmentally friendly coatings for corn seeds that will fertilize themselves. ^^^
    Forbes is trolling for investment suckers. This research has been going on for a very, very long time.

    *** Health insurance companies are useless. Get rid of them ***
    This piece doesn’t use the term “single payer” a single time. That causes my tinfoil hat to whisper to me this fellow’s real goal is to inform the world the dirty Democrats plan to Forbid(!) them to have their own health insurance and force them into some kind of socialist/commie scheme which will bankrupt them.

    *** Get a grip, white people. We’re not the victims. ***
    At the link Sprague de Camp explained why us white folks really ARE the true victims. We are persecuted because all the things we KNOW are sins and social evils are now legal, and we are no longer allowed to fight back with tar/featherings, lynchings, and burning down the churches of ‘wrong’ religions. Again, we’re persecuted precisely because we are not allowed to persecute THEM.

    *** Trump Outperformed His Popularity in 2016. That Might Not Happen in 2020. ***
    I was talking to a couple of relatives over the weekend. They explained to me they didn’t truly vote for Trump, but instead against Hillary. That was their reaction to Hillary. Some of us avoided the both of them. Given a decent candidate, this won’t happen again. Trump is toast, and how he bails from the race is the only thing I’m not sure about. I’d predict a sudden illness, but that’s just me.

    *** The Right Kind of Continuity ***
    Fascinating little site, and I’ve bookmarked it for a trial run. The extreme far-left of this community has no influence at all, but they have some nice essays to read. In the linked one I zeroed in on this snippit:
    ^^^ In addition to cash, Wexner gave Epstein power of attorney, which allowed him to perform financial transactions in Wexner’s name. He also gifted Epstein his Upper East Side manse, then handed over the Boeing 727 that Epstein would turn into his infamous party plane. ^^^
    The airplane gift reminded me of another time the Apartheid state gave away an airplane:
    ^^^ That year, 1978, Begin invited The Reverend Jerry Falwell for his first official visit to Israel, and the following year, 1979, his government gave Falwell a gift — a Lear Jet.
    Begin’s timing was perfect. He began working seriously with Christian Zionists at the precise moment that Christian fundamentalists in America were discovering their political voice. ^^^
    “Elevating” the End-Timer Fundamentalists was another work of genius which has worked out very well for Zionists. (the Vatican has used the same devout but gullible group for its campaign against Women’s Rights, and in particular against abortion and contraception.)

    I’m pretty sure the FBI and others are working very hard to put incriminating documents into the same cremation pyre as Epstein. Like Falwell, Epstein has been worth ever mega-buck handed over to him. How else would the ethnic cleansing and general thefts in the ‘holy land’ have proceeded so well in such a short time? When somebody has pictures of “you” with an underaged girl, you’re going to keep your yap shut and do as you’re told. And so they have.
