Apparently the Democrats are topping up the sea as it doesn’t have enough water 

He’s starting to sound like the guy who I used to see in Finsbury Park at 8 in the morning on his third can of Tennats Super who would shout at people 

Tennants Super....wouldn't be Scottish would he?

Here's an article that goes into more depth about the fish thing.

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/dec/22/delta-smelt-fish-trump-california-aoe

He's been going on about it since 2016 because the farmers want to take all the water, which will eventually cause bigger problems for the ecology of the system. Feels like a similar situation to the Murray-Darling issue here.

There's a podcast I may have mentioned before called It Could Happen Here which was released in the first half of last year. It makes the argument that America is closer to a second civil war than many people realise.

The host leans to the left and says as much at the beginning, but he grew up in conservative, rural, gun-toting America so he's a lot less dismissive of them than a lot on the left, particularly as the urban/rural divide is a big part of the discussion. He talked about armed right wing militia groups, large scale relatively peaceful protests by the left, Portland being the site of a lot of unrest, issues around policing and law enforcement in general taking a side, etc.

Not sure it'll get as bad as he predicted but he's called a lot right so far.

I think that under Trump the US underbelly is much more exposed than under previous administrations......troubling times ahead regardless of the result next month.

I see the US in a lose-lose situation. It is so polarised that regardless of the result, the country will only fracture more. And if Trump loses he will not follow the historical protocol around peaceful transfer of power and he will tie it up in the (stacked) courts. 
 

A gift to the would-be superpowers in the world.

Yet some Kiwis appear desperate to move to the communist state of Victoria under Dictator Dan :xnod:
