Much of America’s problems lie west of the San Andreas Fault.

    Islands in the US are nice isolated places that can be easily kept “clean”
    to keep the illusion of a perfect world alive while ignoring what really goes on in the world.

    But this picture seems to me like evil propaganda.
    Neither those islands nor the voters can really exist-they drowned a long time ago according to Hansen.

    It is a sad fact that acreage doesn’t vote, individuals do.

    The map does at least make it clear that when you look at the higher percentages of Clinton voters, they are concentrated in those places where people are increasingly distanced from what has been the human knowledge base for a hundred thousand years. People in high density urban areas have no idea where food comes from, what it is to experience raw weather, how is fuel supplied (whether coal, oil, gas or even wood), where the materials to build cars or houses come from. Paradoxically, people in high density population area suffer most of all from a loss of community. Where people are rare, you know your neighbors, and you know not to screw them over because you WILL need their help someday. In the large city, almost everyone is disposable, because you can always access someone else, someone who does not know your reputation.

    Something the Clinton Archipelago should remember about this map.

    All the food comes from the sea.

    Is Guam on this map or did it tip over?

    Don’t forget the giant volcano they just found under New England.
    Maybe Gaia is getting fed up with her adherents. :D

      As a geologist I would write off this “super volcanoe” as someones model getting all FUBAR due to incorrect parameters or incorrect input.
      Likely there is some density anomaly and the most wild ass interpretation was made to generate attention.
      This is in the general area of the White Mountain Plutons of Vermont and New Hampshire & the Monteregian Hills of Quebec but they are between 200 to 125 million years old and none ever reached the surface as volcanoes. Another scary super volcanoe story …. scarier than the last scary story.

        Supervolvanos are obviously a specialty of american science.
        (is there anything unarmageddonic that comes from there and that the rest of the world do not have to follow?)

    If you’d look at the voting in just about every major city in the U.S. (highly populated), you’ll find where most liberals live and vote. They are living within the “BIG CITY BUBBLE” and can’t see very much farther than their own borders. They leave it up to the PRESS to tell them what is going on outside their BUBBLE. :-)

    • Weylan McAnally says:

      I live about 15 miles south of downtown Dallas directly off of the massively traveled IH-35. Our northern city limits is the southern Dallas County line.
      Folks who live in Dallas almost universally have no idea where I live despite the close proximity. Unless they are traveling to Austin or San Antonio, they almost never travel south. When I explain that I can be in downtown in 15 minutes, they are puzzled. As you say, they all live in a “Big City bubble”.

      • Patrick says:

        Precisely the point. It’s easy to believe what the press tells us if we can’t see outside of our own box of bubbles. There’s a mind-blowing mathematical fact about our true existence that I like to refer to: – “The entire volume of all people (if we were packed together in a square box) takes up the space equivalent to less than 1/3rd of one cubic mile” -. Dallas/Ft. Worth covers over 1200 square miles which is over 3x the surface area needed for the entire world to stand together. (“We are the World. We are the Children” – Stevie Wonder”)
