As we get closer and closer to Nov 8, 2022 I fully expect the paranoia and suspicion from the general population (regardless of party) directed at our current rulers to increase in logarithmic proportions.
Some have started the trend early, but as the saying goes, just because you are paranoid it does not mean they are not out to get you.
Case in point – the number of food and supply chain related events over the past 12 or so months, handily summarized below.
Yes, it can all be coincidence, unrelated, etc. etc. but when compared to the statistics for such events going back 10 years, one finds that maybe 3 or 5 accidents do happen each year on average. The sheer number is what causes one to question sanity.

What is going on in America today?
It’s only paranoia until it actually happens. Now if you want a real conspiracy theory, here’s one I came up with.
Will the Biden Maladministration cancel the Midterm elections?
Well, if one wanted to trigger a civil war between factions, that would certainly be a pretty good way to light the fuse.
Aaron told me the other day that there wasn’t anything new here for a while, so I thought I would come by and post something with my new retirement Identity, but you beat me to it. Cool. I’ve always relied on Occam’s razor, combined with the KISS Principle for everything in my life. The shortest distance. Cut the bullshit. Make… Read more »
DJ, I think those of us that pay attention to the environment are on the edge of BS burnout, and to be honest, I could not write fiction that matches what is going on currently in this country and several others around the world. I mean, Trudeau is off the deep end with what he said the other day.. Having… Read more »
Deej, ssshhh..never use facts, you will just confuse her.
Sorry, I should know better than introduce facts here on the Rott. My “Memories on FaceCrack” reminded me of you this morning, Bren. Remember your unhinged descriptions about the CHAD here in Seattle a couple of years ago? The protest over George Floyd’s murder by the Minneapolis police caused a group of clowns to take over Anderson Park and the… Read more »
I am curious as to what other “events around the world” you are referring to, since your last attempt bore as much resemblance to the truth as a pile of dogshit resembles a roast beef dinner. BTW I am also highly amused that that so called “ignoring the rule of law” claim you made earlier seems to have further embarrassed… Read more »
I am truly curious if your media shows what is happening in other countries or if the ABC and their ilk are mostly insular and pay attention mostly to immediate surroundings in the Asia sphere? If you want some pointers on what I classify as “going on in other parts of the world”, go online and research the some of… Read more »
I am truly curious if your media shows what is happening in other countries or if the ABC and their ilk are mostly insular and pay attention mostly to immediate surroundings in the Asia sphere? No, we have various channels that provide worldwide coverage..unlike your sick joke of a media that focusses on ‘Murica alone. I have lost count of… Read more »
Its CANADA. The place is a socialist mess.
I am astonished that this even surprises you…again, I saw this coming years ago.
Here is a pleasant distraction from your neck of the woods. My youngest son turned me on to them a few years back. Reminds me of what I used to do back in the 70’s and 80’s. still do much of my own work, just slower.
Add another food processing plant that mysteriously caught fire yesterday. OMG a pizza shortage looms!
Meanwhile, an abundance of snow in OZ
Oh my god..the lizard men are attacking the pizza plants…………whatever will we do?
Its RINO season https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhgPyjLg2jQ Cant say Im sorry, I have been waiting for this for over two years. Whilst slurs of “Trumpublicans” are thrown around, no one can argue that the voters have had a gutful of Rice..and now Cheney Rice didnt even get 25% of the vote, Cheney wont even show her face in Wyoming..both of them voted to… Read more »
Reality is tough on Greens and socialists (redundancy alert)
