I have been spending a little time watching the post mortems on the election. Out here in doomerland there is a strange and sullen vibe going around. Now, lets get to the main point of this. In the eyes of a majority of doomers (my non-Nate-Silver estimate is around 55% of total doomers) are basically glued to old patterns of race identification and are in varying stages of annoyance/anger that some uppity nigger still has the gall to be in the White House in a capacity other than that of a house servant.
Then there are the significant minority of doomers who make a mental hegira to Galt’s Gulch every year (Non-Nate Silver rates this at around 40% with such a significant overlap with the above group that it probably should be a subset rather than a separate category)
Add to this the gun nuts who populate our little community (around 65%, with 50% overlap with the above two categories) and you are looking at an odd demographic where I kind of fit in. I am out of touch with around 75% of the prepper/doomer population, which is a small (around 10%) faction of a increasingly odd general population.
So, what do I write about and why the hell should I care?
Maybe I’ll take a long nap.
Happy Veterans Day.
