Year 1 under an authoritarian regime.

UPDATE: 20170612

Due to extenuating circumstances, I don't think I can keep updating this entry.  For the sake of my mental, emotional, and physical health I'm going to let it go.  Lifeline, Edison, and other parts of me are going to continue monitoring and archiving the USian political situation but I, the organic core of everything, need to step back and do other things.

In response to reading this tweet, I thought I'd type up the following list, and add links to some stuff I've observed.  I'll update it as necessary.  List beneath the cut.

Prediction: The United States of America will be at war again by 26 July 2017.

I very much want to be wrong.

Within 180 days of 0000 hours UTC, Friday, 27 January 2017, the United States of
America will declare war once again.  That puts it at Wednesday, 26 July 2017
at 0000 hours UTC.  I do not know for sure, but countries in the Middle East
seem the most likely targets.

This seems due, in part, that the USA seems to be trying to start the Crusades
again (George W. Bush tried once).  The Trump administrations' public and
flagrant distrust, disapproval, and seeming pants-shitting-fear of Muslims
around the world would seem to point to this.

This seems due, in part, to the low approval ratings of President Donald J.
Trump.  As of 28 January 2017 @ 1454 hours PST8PDT, they are at 36% approval,
44% disapproval on http://www.pollingreport.com/djt_job.htm.  I've made a PDF
copy of this file here:

To jack up his approval ratings (and improve his chances of re-election, if
nothing else) this is a logical national action to take.  It certainly worked
for George W. Bush after 9/11 but wasn't enough to sustain his approval ratings
in the long run.

I have received no orders, demands, or suggestions to write or post this.  I
have received no pay or other compensation to write or post this.

I have no insider knowledge.

I have only the patterns of history to suggest this, and I'm seeing everything
happen all over again.  And again.

I don't want to be right again.
