Discuss the Stats at the Survey Table inside the Diner



First, the results from last week's Collapse SurveyTM on the BEST place to Hole Up as Collapse accelerates around the Industrial World.  Very good sample size this week, 140 respondents so far.  The rankings haven't changed much since the first 25 came in, so confidence level is high that this represents the view of most KollapsniksTM.



Full Stats are down at the bottom of the page.



Unsurprising this week, New Zealand ranked #1 as Best Collapse Hole Up location.  My own Hole of Alaska ranked #2.



Apparently some folks did not know where Tristan da Cunha, Edinburgh of the Seven Seas is.  It's widely considered to be the most remote inhabited island in the world.




Tristan da Cunha



The most remote archipelago and the most remote inhabited island is Tristan da Cunha in the South Atlantic Ocean, 2,434 km (1,512 mi) from Saint Helena, 2,816 km (1,750 mi) from South Africa, and 3,360 km (2,090 mi) from South America

I was a little surprised the Sea Gypsy paradigm of going mobile on a Sailboat did not rank a bit higher.  Since a sailboat allows you to go just about anywhere and also can be pretty self-sufficient with a reverse osmosis water desalinator and solar PV panels and wind turbine, this paradigm has a lot going for it.



Few seem to think underground living in a bunker is a real good solution.

OK now on to this week's Collapse SurveyTM! :)



Take the New Survey HERE



We did a survey a couple of week's ago on who would be the WORST choice for the next POTUS.  Guess who won?



http://assets.nydailynews.com/polopoly_fs/1.110525.1313948902!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/article_970/alg-donald-trump-jpg.jpg



Trumpism: The Ideology



Podcast with Jeffrey Tucker on Donald Trump



Basically for my entire life, each time a POTUS gets elected, he is instantly HATED by at least a portion of the people that elected him to office to begin with, usually for reneging on promises made or for doing something really stupid, but conversation at the Pub is always about how the current POTUS blows chunks. The Donald is HATED even before he gets elected. LOL.



So for this week's survey, I went back as far as Franky Roosevelt, who actually served FOUR terms as POTUS before they limited that to two terms.  FDR got the job of handling both Collapse effects of the Great Depression and WWII, so he seemed to be a good one to start with.  I am trying to keep these ranking surveys with only as many choices as will fit on the page at once, otherwise they become too difficult to do.  You have to scroll up and down as you move the choices around, it's a pain in the ass.



So, which of these recent POTUS was the MOST Evil, and who was the LEAST Evil?



Below are some features of their time spent running the FSoA to consider:



Franky Roosevelt:



Provoked the Japanese into attacking Pearl Harbor by Embargoing Japan. Created the Social Security system and vastly increased Federal bureaucracy. Confiscated Gold.



Harry Truman



Dropped the Bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki



Dwight Eisenhower



Built the Interstate Highways and created modern Amerikan Happy Motoring Mall culture.  POTUS during the McCarthy Communist Purge in the 1950s.



Jack Kennedy



Got us into Vietnam.  Almost got WWIII started over the Cuban Missile Crisis.  Fucked Marilyn Monroe.



Lyndon Johnson



Escalated the Vietnam War.  Created the Great Society Social Welfare system.



Richard Nixon



"I am not a Crook".  Watergate. Cambodia. Took the FSoA off the Gold Standard and went All Fiat, all the time.



Gerald Ford



Pardoned Richard Nixon



Jimmy Carter



Iranian Hostage Crisis.  Lust in his Heart.  Farmed Peanuts.



Ronald Rayguns



Fired all the Air Traffic Controllers.  "Trickle Down'' Economics. Star Wars Missile Defense Program.



Bush the First



CIA Director.  Panama. Gulf War.



Billy Clinton



Repealed Glass-Steagall.  Got Blowjobs from Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office



Bush the Second



Iraq. Afghanistan. Patriot Act.  WTC. War on Terror.



Barry Obama



Obamacare. TPP. More Afghanistan.  NDAA. Golfed while Rome Burned.



 



OK!  Now you get to rank this Rogue's Gallery from Most to Least Evil!

Most Evil Recent POTUS: Now UP on r/history!
« Reply #1 on: August 18, 2015, 03:53:50 AM »
Over 3M subscribers to r/history:icon_sunny:

https://www.reddit.com/r/history/comments/3hfj0g/survey_rank_us_presidents_from_fdr_to_barack/

Starting out at #6.  If the mods on r/history don't whack it, we will get some good numbers on this one.

I can't drop it on r/politics, I have already been BANNED over there.  :(  Another Diner could drop it on there though.  Wink, Wink.  ;) ;)  LOL.  Drop the survey itself, not the article if you are going to do it.  The survey has links back to the Diner anyhow.  I bought a premium membership so I can customize that site as I like now.  Kaching!

I'm going to wait until my current links on r/collapse start dropping from the Top 5 before I drop this on there.  In that case I will focus on the results from the Best Collapse Location hole results.

Yup.  That one worked. 10 Respondents in about 5 minutes.  If the Mods don't whack the link on r/history, we'll get some good numbers on this one.  :icon_sunny:

Whacked by a Bot at 15 responses.  However, I pitched a message at the mods to reinstate it.  :icon_sunny:

Ah, it appears that one is not allowed to use "evil" as a descriptor for a U.S. president on Reddit.

Maybe you can ask which has done the most harm?

No, the History Mods claim to not allow surveys at ALL.  I got pissed off and told them off.  :icon_mrgreen:

Same nonsense from them (r/askhistory mods). These channels are worthless. How can you discuss history if you can't venture opionion or survey opinions? It's not physics, there is no math you can rely on.

Bah, you are a waste of time.

It is unlikely I will get anything up on the History Channels in the forseeable future.  :icon_mrgreen:

A tie for 1st ....
The 2 least evil's were the IKEster & the peanut farmer.
The most evil would be King Geo. Sr.
Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
And stars fill my dream
Iím a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race
This world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
All will be revealed

Results VERY interesting so far!  However, small sample since the jerk mods on r/history cut me off. :P
