Hopeful but realistic? In ten years, I hope life isn't too hard on the cockroaches.

I create a few dozen fake Illegal Refugee I.D. numbers, collect $3,874/mo from the Federal Assistance program for each one of them and become the next George Soros.

"Illegal Refugee ID-number" - is that what they call a double oxy?

You'd have to be collecting your hundred thou a month for some time to get near his bundle... and anyway, why be the next him, he's old and disappointed.

I dunno nothin bout no double oxy whatevers. I just know "Illegal Refugees" are collecting exactly Three Thousand Eight Hundred and Seventy-Four U.S. Dollars a month, which is like 3 times what most people on Social Security collect a month. I know it's tru because my fambily is posting pictures of text saying it's tru on Facedook.



I think the main point I'm getting at here is that the bar for what constitutes "realistic" has gotten pretty low, actually.

10 years from now:

Ted Nugent is president, still shitting himself.
Joe Arpieo's festering corpse is nailed to a seat in the senate, and is a shrine to Nazis.
Public education tops out at 3rd grade, if you can pay the fees.
Youtube is nothing but Oasis tribute bands, but it doesn't matter because your service doesn't include youtube.
Warren Ellis still hasn't finished Doktor Sleepless.
The Republic of Texas fragments into 4 smaller states.
Anger is an official gender.

I see your much revered optimism has ony matured with age. Will there be an official pronoun to go with the angry gender? What will it take to upgrade to youtube? Also, so you do not predict a Major Human Population Reduction Event on that timescale, that's encouraging... I looked up the other guys you mentioned, Ted for Prez would also be an improvement, so really you are forecasting a happyfest. This Arpeio guy's local to your part of the world, right? and Ellis, he isn't even American! Public Education: do you really think it'll top out? Isn't it needed to produce reasonable-grade machine-fodder?

Education stops at 3rd grade. After that, it's 10 years of "preemptive incarceration".

Arpeio is about 45 miles from me.  I still advocate the use of nuclear weapons against him.

I sympathise. He seems extremely... unsavoury. When you get one, if they do package deals, could you get one for our beloved leadership Orbán, too?
