Trump will turn something into a glass parking lot before he leaves office.

Yellowstone has such a low probability of erupting, you're better off playing Powerball

Is this a lost verse from Alannis Morissette's song?  Win the Powerball and Yellowstone erupts - isn't it ironic?

They've spent so much time hyping the hurricane season, I'm guessing we won't have one.

Maybe a bumper crop of F5 tornadoes and basketball size hail.

Stop calling it white supremacy and call it what it really is: white racial insecurity. A bunch of bigoted farking pussies.

When I was stationed in Germany 2005ish I watched an old man beat the shiat out of a dude wearing a swashtika. That's how we fix white supremacy: don't farking tolerate it. If you see it happening or represented in any way don't tolerate it even to your own detriment. Don't let uncle shiatstain rant about it at the thanksgiving table unchallenged. Don't let random coworker make shiatty jokes. The two men white were killed in Portland trying to protect those two black girls from the crazy racist dude are heroes and examples.

The US is completely unprepared for even a poorly made biological or chemical weapon attack.  Especially those which do not kill but permanently disable.  Our health care system is a dumpster fire, and the federal government has made it crystal clear they won't do much to prevent or deal with it (the state governments don't have the resources even if they want to do something).
I don't necessarily think that Trump will launch a nuclear attack, however his incompetent foreign policy is likely going to lead to an attack by Best Korea on the south, India and Pakistan exchange, or potentially the Ukraine destroying Moscow if Putin is emboldened to invade them and Ukraine has a surprise Soviet era nuke hidden up their sleeves.
Climate change is a big one, even though it seems like a long way off the time to mitigate is now when bond rates are extremely low.  We won't have the resources later if interest rates rise or a massive disaster knocks out a big part of our economy.
I don't worry about white supremacy, the US has been heading away from this since 1861.  The historical trend is overwhelmingly against it.  They are not very fine people.

There will never be another airplane hijacking because the passengers know their lives are at risk and would fight back.  We need that mentality with the white coward movement.

Trump is a symptom of the problem. Yeah, he could end us all. But, he's also an incompetent idiot. All it takes is the election of a competent narcissist backed by the Cult of the Red Hat.

It sounds too paranoid... but I theorize he will do something to punish Americans, like doing something awful and irreparable to the environment.. cause some permanent retaliatory damage... you know, like a childish asshole might do once rejected.

Agreed. But, it would be childishly easy to get the band back together after Der FlimFlam Fuhrer goes away. All one would have to do is hold up pictures of white Jesus, Donny and Ronald Regan.

Just enough of us were dumb enough to vote him in in the first place so anything is possible there. I am more concerned about the lashing out from his cultists if and hopefully when he is voted out.

Every day when I log on I expect to be greeted by some breaking news that states something like "CATS ARE NOW EXTINCT" or "THE SKY HAS TURNED GREEN, SCIENTISTS UNSURE" and I don't think it would phase me anymore.

An attack on our power grid would be a good way to fark with things right as the coronavirus is on an upswing and the election draws near.

Of course we have such studies. Scads of them. And strategies and OPLANS and all the rest to go with them. But none of that is any good if the boss is illiterate or determined to bankrupt company.

Or manipulating bank records so consumers wonder whether their deposits are safe. (The newest novel by Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, The Paladin, published just this week, revolves around a plot to manipulate financial markets.) The economic implications of such attacks could be paralyzing.

Or banks actually stealing peoples' money, then blaming it on Russians.

I worry more about rich white Evangelical Christians instigating, funding, arming, training etc. said shiatstains.

There are a lot of wealthy nutjobs out there: the rich aren't just Episcopalians and a few moderate Jews anymore.

Sure, until he gets rid of the studies and programs designed to deal with such things, like Obama's Pandemic Response Unit.  How many other useful government agents has President Moron offloaded?
