Mulcair, you loser, get the hell out of Dodge

Tom Mulcair vows he will stay on as leader of NDP
It's probably fair to call Mulcair out as possibly the second worst leader in the NDP's history. And there's been some pretty bad leaders since McLaughlin, arguably the NDP's worst.
To be fair, the NDP's probably dead. The ideals of yesterday are buried, and the leadership group is filled with career pols and exiled neo-libs.
It's time to kick these fuckers out of the party. Start with Mulcair, and work our way down the list. Get some backbone into the party. Get some real heart.
Neo-liberalism is dead. It's a failed idealogy. It's ruined lives, worldwide, and enriches none but those already rich and powerful.
And of the two dead entities, I trust the NDP could rise again. But it's time to stop buying the snake oil hucksters like Mulcair have been selling.
Power is only important if you have heart. Power for its own sake is corrupting. This has been known for millennia, and still we allowed ourselves to be led astray.
Enough.
Get the hell out of Dodge, Mulcair.

Why Did Two-Thirds of These Weird Antelope Suddenly Drop Dead?

The Atlantic
My goodness. What is suggested in this report is how a changing climate can negatively effect our physiology, which could turn our own bodily systems against itself.
Only one factor fit the bill: climate. The places where the saigas died in May 2015 were extremely warm and humid. In fact, humidity levels were the highest ever seen the region since records began in 1948. The same pattern held for two earlier, and much smaller, die-offs from 1981 and 1988. When the temperature gets really hot, and the air gets really wet, saiga die. Climate is the trigger, Pasteurella is the bullet.

Thinking along the lines of this, I suppose

Historically, people like Trump tend to be empire's second-to-last leaders. Leaders who lead their nations into stagnant and ruinous policies. Think Brezhnev. Mehmed V.
It's generally a series of unfortunate coincidences that lead to their installments, and it's usually a series of blundering events they create leading to their empire's decline.
Well, helping to lead to their empire's decline.
The political atmosphere which foster these sorts of leaders helps, too.
Trump crawled fully formed out of a membrane which was vomited onto the floor in the United States during the end of Age of Reagan. I really can't say it was inevitable that Trump would win election in the USA, but it was inevitable that someone much like Trump eventually would.
It's down to the momentum of history, I suppose, that it happened.

The 2017 BC provincial Election

The BC NDP almost broke through. It's another BC Liberal government, but only with the cooperation of the Green Party. If I had any say with the BC NDP, I'd counsel them that this is an opportunity rather than a setback. The BC NDP almost outright won. Just a few more seats. Just a few more. Furthermore, I'd counsel the BC NDP to put enormous pressure onto the BC Liberals/Green alliance. Offer nothing but poison pills to them. Push bills such as outright shutting down Site C and Kinder Morgen. Test the environmental bonafides of the Greens. See if they backpeddle on their claims to being an environmental political party simply to keep their alliance with the BC Liberals alive. Offer the Greens absolutely nothing but yes or no choices. And make sure that the BC electorate knows what happens if it goes the way of the BC NDP. Also, craft opposition bills to that are popular with the BC electorate that the BC Liberals have historically have had nothing to do with, such as indexin…
