Are Americans Disgruntled, Hostile, and Suspicious?

| January 5, 2011

It seems it should be easy to blog about Vaknin’s 2nd criterion (see full criteria below) for a semi-failed state:  a disgruntled, hostile and suspicious citizenry. I don’t know anyone who thinks Obama has done a good job of running the country. Both right wing Republicans and left leaning progressives have been extremely vocal about […]

Is the US a Zombie State?

| January 3, 2011

As I blogged previously, I am intrigued by analyst Sam Vaknin’s concept of a “zombie state” – one which has ceased to perform effective domestic governing functions.

I find it very intriguing that the UK is experiencing its coldest December in 100 years  especially as this is what Dr Gianluigi Zangari predicted in July, when he first reported that the Gulf Stream (aka the […]

Hello Houston, We Have a Problem

| September 18, 2010

I’m afraid I have some really bad news today. It appears, from satellite images, that the Ocean Conveyor Belt, aka the North Atlantic Drift, aka the Gulf Stream, aka the Thermohaline Circulation stopped approximately a month ago. Instead of travelling all the way north to the west coast of Britain, it now seems to break […]
