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! 🙂

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.  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 last 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!
