So let me see if I understand this correctly. California is supposed to be the wealthiest and most advanced state in the US. From what I had the opportunity to see, their fire control is less advanced than what we have in Croatia. They have droughts because they aren't capable of getting water from the state up north, Oregon, where water is abundant.
This is the country that is amassing troupes on Russian borders and threatening nuclear war.

If they can't handle a forest fire, how the hell would they handle nuclear bombs?

And meanwhile, Russia is finishing a gas pipeline to China, across the entire continent of Asia, and recently finished a bridge to Crimea, which means they would be able to solve Californian drought problem with a flick of a finger.

This kind of rhetoric is going to make every nation in the world that doesn't want to be a slave to rally around Russia and China. And btw, that's what Americans mean by "freedom". Be a slave or die.

It depends on what is actually good for trans people. I don't personally think that forcing the gender issues down people's throats is good for trans people, because 3rd Newton's law is applicable to sociology and the "equal and opposite reaction" tends to be nasty. What I'm trying to say is, if someone thinks that it helps gay or trans people if you try to destroy the conventional definitions of gender, sex, sexuality and family, that person has very poor understanding of human nature. What I really think will help is to show that trans people are not threatening civilisation as we know it; and honestly, all SJW policies have done so far is make normal people annoyed to the point of electing Trump. If further annoyed, they will elect a Hitler, and then all hell will break loose. So, essentially, if someone is trying to stop all this gender bullshit before it got too far, he's really doing you a huge favor, because honestly, Blaire doesn't need a special transgender bathroom, she will do perfectly well with a female one, without trying to break the concepts of sex, gender or the way humans interact. And judging by the way we anti-SJW people react to Blaire, if transgender people behave in a normal, civilisationally non-threatening way, we will go out of our way to treat them with kindness and just provide them with everything they need in order to function comfortably. But those who force gay poetry and pink dresses on boys in order to "break gender stereotypes" will eventually get all trans and gay people killed.

This reminds me of the arguments against Olympus E1 camera that I had to go through a while ago - "oh, the 5 megapixels, oh the autofocus, it's crap, Canon is better". The theoretical arguments would fall apart once people would see the pictures made by that camera, which had amazingly clean and beautiful colors.
The specs on paper can deceive you, mostly because they are just one dimension. Especially because people tend to think that resolution equals image quality. No, other things make image quality, and resolution comes into play only after you magnify the image too much.

My opinion on this is as follows:
- I basically love the concept of electric cars. Li-ion batteries, not so much
- everything that's environmentally wrong with smartphones is exponentially more wrong with electric cars that use the same battery type
-if electricity is produced by clean energy (Thorium/molten salt liquid fuel fission, hydrothermal, solar) it's great. If it's produced by coal, natural gas, oil or hydro (destroys large portions of natural environment by creating the accumulation lakes), it might be worse than combusting oil or gas in cars
-if oil is a limited natural resource, lithium is a million times more so
-the problem of range and recharging is not solved with batteries, and is unlikely to be solved ever, because charging a powerful battery or a supercapacitor quickly means lots of amps through a conduit, and lots of amps means a huge fire hazard. Also, since battery is a main component of the vehicle, it's unlikely to be swapped successfully at a charging station, because it's too valuable, equivalent to an engine swap in a petrol car.

However, if an efficient, light, sturdy beta-emission nuclear cell becomes cheap and safe at any point, that might make the whole thing suddenly very interesting, because that would give cars the same kind of autonomy and durability that we have in nuclear submarines. You just want to make it sturdy and light enough not to spill isotopes around in case of an accident.

The reaction on the social media shows how indoctrinated with Marxism everybody really is. No, slavery didn't do shit. The parts of America that kept slaves were backward and poor; the North industrialised exactly because there was no cheap slave labor to compete with the machines, so those were developed, to great effect. A combination of a very simple state structure, patent laws that encouraged invention (one hoped to become rich with patents), and, first and foremost, influx of some of the most competent people from abroad, like Tesla, is what made America. However, it still wasn't much - the difference between America and Argentina for instance, before the world wars, was insignificant. It's after the second world war, after Europe was completely ruined, and America essentially robbed it of the intellectual cream of the crop, controlled the world's monetary system, and had the military upper hand, not to mention the occupying forces on the ground, that America surged up compared to Europe. The reasons are complex, but slavery played zero part in them. Also, the free land didn't mean that much, or Australia for instance would be in the same ballpark, which it is not. Slavery exists even today in some countries, and how does it affect them? They are without exception among the poorest and least developed countries in the world. So much about the Marxist analysis, stating that if someone is rich, he must have robbed someone. Exactly the opposite seems to be true - where people are allowed to rob others, this interferes with the complexity of processes required for technological development.
