2023.06.09 22:06 hansington1 [MODPOST] Excerpts from "Tectonic Shifts: A Retrospective on the Geopolitical Upheavals of the Early 21st Century"

Chapter 7: The Americas and the Pacific - A Tale of Fragmentation and Unity
In the annals of history, the early 2020s will be remembered as a time of unprecedented geopolitical transformation. The Americas and the Pacific region, in particular, were at the epicenter of some of the most dramatic shifts. The United States, long considered a bastion of stability, began to unravel, while Central and South America charted a course toward unity. Meanwhile, the Pacific was rocked by a territorial dispute that escalated into a full-scale conflict.
The fragmentation of the United States was a development that unfolded like a slow-motion disaster. It began in October 2022, with a political maelstrom triggered by charges against former President Donald Trump. The nation was thrown into turmoil, and the seeds of discord were sown. By February 2023, the first cracks in the union became visible when a group of states, known as the Freedom Pact, declared their secession. The fissures deepened over the following months, with states in the West and Midwest also breaking away. The once-unified superpower was now a patchwork of independent entities, each charting its own course. This transformation, a stark departure from the United States' long-standing image as a bastion of stability, sent shockwaves across the international stage.
While the United States was grappling with its internal divisions, Central and South America were moving towards greater unity. The seeds of this transformation were sown in November 2022 when several nations began discussions on integration. These talks bore fruit by April 2023 with the formation of the Central American Union, a new political entity that signaled a shift towards regional cooperation.
Meanwhile, in the Pacific, a territorial dispute over the Timor Sea between Indonesia and Australia escalated into a full-scale conflict. Indonesia's claim to the entire sea in November 2022 sparked tensions that simmered over the following months. By May 2023, these tensions had boiled over into a war, adding another layer of complexity to the geopolitical dynamics of the region. This conflict, set against the backdrop of broader global shifts, underscored the volatility of the period.
Chapter 8: Rising Tensions and New Alliances - Mexico's Invasion, Unity in the Americas, and Canada's Expansion
As the United States grappled with its internal divisions, its southern neighbor, Mexico, seized the opportunity to advance its own interests. In May 2023, Mexico launched an invasion of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. This audacious move, taking advantage of the chaos unfolding in the United States, marked a significant escalation in tensions between the two nations. While the initial campaign saw great success, the Mexican Army was beaten back at the Battle of Lindsey that not only saw the decisive defeat of the Mexican’s Army ability to continue to push North, but the first detonation of a tactical nuclear weapon utilized in a war on the North American Continent. Already, parallels were being drawn between this and Russia’s own use of tactical nuclear weapons to stop the advance of the Ukranian Army with results and the horror being starkly similar.
While Mexico was advancing north, Central and South America were moving towards greater unity. The Central American Union, formed in April 2023, represented a significant step towards regional cooperation. This new political entity, comprising several nations, signaled a shift towards a more unified Central America. In South America, a historic merger led to the creation of the United States of Brazil in May 2023. This new nation, born out of the desire for unity and strength in numbers, marked a significant shift in the geopolitical landscape of the region. Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, Surinam, and Guyana came together to form this new entity, signaling a new era of cooperation and unity in South America.
Meanwhile, to the north, Canada was also expanding its territory. The Midwestern States of the former United States negotiated a deal with Canada for protection. This move, which effectively brought these states under Canadian control, marked a significant expansion of Canada's territory and influence. During this tumultuous time, in an effort to secure the Caribbean, the American S.E. Launched an otherwise devastating invasion of the Nation of Cuba. As devastating as it was unexpected, Cuba's fall was inevitable under a bulwark of American Airpower, Naval Actions, and direct invasion. This further secured the Free States of America's domination of the Caribbean.
These developments, from Mexico's audacious invasion to the birth of new political entities in Central and South America, and Canada's territorial expansion, were indicative of the profound shifts taking place across the globe. As nations navigated these turbulent waters, the world watched with bated breath, cognizant of the fact that the outcomes of these transformations would indelibly shape the geopolitical landscape for generations to come.

Chapter 9: The Emergence of Gran Colombia and the Argentine-Chilean Union
In South America, the winds of change blew with a force that reshaped the political landscape of the continent. The formation of Gran Colombia and the merging of Argentina and Chile were significant developments that marked a new chapter in the region's history.
In the north, the governments of Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, and Ecuador began discussions on integration in November 2022. These talks were fruitful, leading to the restoration of Gran Colombia by April 2023. This new political entity, a revival of the early 19th-century republic that once united these nations, signaled a shift towards a more unified South America. The restoration of Gran Colombia was seen as a significant step towards regional cooperation and integration, a move that could potentially strengthen the region's position on the global stage.
Meanwhile, in the southern part of the continent, Argentina and Chile embarked on a path of unification. This move, which led to the merging of the two nations, was a historic development that reshaped the geopolitical dynamics of the region. The Argentine-Chilean Union, as the new entity came to be known, represented a significant consolidation of power and resources in the southern cone of South America.
These developments, from the rebirth of Gran Colombia to the creation of the Argentine-Chilean Union, were emblematic of the profound transformations sweeping across South America. As these nations charted their new courses, the world watched with keen interest, recognizing that the outcomes of these shifts would significantly impact the geopolitical dynamics of the region and beyond. Reflecting on these times of tumult, it is evident that we were standing at a critical juncture in history, a juncture that would redefine the world as we knew it. The early 2020s will be etched in memory as a period of extraordinary geopolitical metamorphosis, a time when the established order was upended, and the outlines of a new world began to emerge.
Chapter 10: Rising Tides in South East Asia - Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar
As the United States grappled with its internal turmoil and China's influence continued to expand, the nations of Southeast Asia found themselves at a crossroads. Recognizing the need to reassess their strategic stance in the face of these global shifts, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar initiated high-level discussions in January. These talks were fueled by a shared cultural heritage, historical bonds, and a collective aspiration for economic resilience and defense solidarity in a rapidly evolving global landscape.
By March, these discussions had culminated in a significant announcement. The nations declared the formation of a new political and economic union, pledging to foster deeper cooperation and coordination in regional affairs and thus formed the Southeast Asian Union. This union represented a significant step towards unity, driven by a shared vision of strength and stability in an increasingly unpredictable world. However, this peace would be quickly rocked as the fledgling nation found itself at the forefront of a Chinese Invasion of the territories of Myanmar. Exploiting the newfound nations' inexperienced unified command structure, Myanmar quickly fell to the Chinese Forces expanding China’s presence firmly into S.E. Asia.
The Southeast Asian Union, while recently bloodied, finds itself in something of a firm start with a large portion of their Military High Command baptized in fire and their economy already rocking in full swing to support the previous war effort. Their hit-and-run tactics against the Chinese Invasion proved exceptionally effective at prolonging what would otherwise have been an easy strategic victory for China into a somewhat costly campaign.
Chapter 11: A New Dawn in the Pacific - The Birth of a Unified Entity
As the world continued to grapple with unprecedented geopolitical shifts, the nations of Indonesia, Singapore, the Philippines, and Malaya found themselves at a critical juncture. Inspired by the success of the Southeast Asian Union and cognizant of the continuous global instability, these nations embarked on a path of unification. In April, the merger process was initiated. Expedited by shared cultural and historical ties, these nations began the journey towards becoming a single entity known as The Singapore Accord. Boasting a large population and a wealth of resources, The Singapore Accord presented a formidable front in the region.
The integration process was comprehensive, focusing on the merger of economies, defense forces, and governance structures. Yet, it was also mindful of the rich cultural diversity within the new entity. Efforts were made to recognize and preserve the unique cultures within this unified nation, ensuring that unity did not come at the cost of diversity.
It stood as a bulwark against the rising power of the Southeast Asian Union, and the territorial ambitions of China signaling a new balance of power in the Pacific.

2023.06.09 21:48 revamped-and-unamped [Fully Lost] Kevin Sorbo's "Miracle in East Texas" (2019)

Originally titled "East Texas Oil," "Miracle in East Texas" (2019) is a film that's existence cannot be denied, but is certainly not available to the public, for reasons unknown.
Starring and directed by Kevin Sorbo, best known for his portrayal of Hercules in the '90s and his religious films, this film, according to its website, is, quote; "inspired by one of the most improbably true stories ever."
Irving Tanner, Jr. (Lou Gossett, Jr.) recounts the 1930 legend. Times are hard, when the unluckiest wildcatter in the world, Dad Everett (John Ratzenberger) teams up with Doc Boyd (Kevin Sorbo), a charming snake oil salesman. Together they convince several new widows (Sam Sorbo, Paula Boudreau, and others) to invest in their worthless oil wells.
Then, the unthinkable happens! Now our two Casanovas are faced with a challenge: declare another dry hole for a clean escape, or bring the well in like genuine oil men, and likely spend the rest of their lives in jail?
Meanwhile, some of their investors are angry, and fixing to do something about it. And one of them is truly a "mountain" of a man. (Tyler Mane)
What happens next? Doc preaches, the Good Lord teaches, and a judge reaches a surprising conclusion. The mostly true story will make you laugh, shed a tear, and give you pride in the God-Blessed American way.
Trailers are available on YouTube and Vimeo.
Reviews are, more than likely, heavily biased, but relatively positive, as it won numerous awards and minor film festivals and recieved at least one positive review.
The question is... where is it? After nearly four years, this film is not available on any major or minor streaming service, has one review on IMDb, and zero reviews on Letterboxd.
While I'm not exactly "interested" in the film in a "I want to watch this!" kind of way, I am intrigued to know what happened to this film, what the final product looked like, and why it never released. Anyone have any ideas?

2023.06.09 20:05 faughk Wet ground under trailer causing saggy and weak flooring

So my husband and I are separating and I'm moving back home to East Texas (humid city) and taking over the notes of my sister's 2008-ish single wide. It's been involved in one move across the city and they've kept pretty good care of it except her ex-husband put metal around the trailer at the bottom. I'm assuming like skirting but what I hear from my parents, it seems solid. Therefore, it's not airing out and has a lot of moisture.
My question is, if I want to fix this the correct, and long lasting way what do I need to do? I've heard a few things about putting dehumidifiers, bags of sand, etc to dry it out. But as far as the floors that are already sagging and have holes in them, is there any salvaging in or will it need to be newly reconstructed? Is this something where i can just add more supporting floor joists and patching the holes? Also if you have an estimate of how much that would cost I appreciate it 😩

2023.06.09 19:24 aloha-cowboy Walker Independence: Meta on Gus'🤠, Calian's🏹 and Kai's🪓 Central Roles in American History

Walker Independence: Meta on Gus'🤠, Calian's🏹 and Kai's🪓 Central Roles in American History
This was written as part of the #SaveWalkerIndependence when I was thinking about the prowess of the Buffalo soldiers, the bravery of the Apache and the fierceness of the Tong- the uneasy alliances but also the unifying force if all these groups decided to make Independence their home- I really wanted to see it happen in Season 2.
Disclaimer: The following is meant to be a very simplistic primer on these 3 population groups. I am not an expert and no disrespect is intended- if the facts are incorrect I am happy to be informed of this. This was written with good intentions and mainly meant to show that the Wild West/USA are all of these people, a place where people from all walks of life mix and mess together and 'the perfect spot for those who wish to reconnect with their humanity and sense of community. Independence, a town to behold. No truer destination in the American West.'
Buffalo soldiers
Episode 110: All In
Calian: This lead. It came from a friend?
Gus: An officer high up in the buffalo soldiers.
Calian: Can we trust him?
Gus: Well, he and I didn't see eye to eye on what the buffalo soldiers have become. And when I deserted, he could've shot me. But he didn't. So, yeah. Yeah, I trust him.
The origin of the name 'Buffalo soldiers' is attributed to both the Comanche and the Apache. The name is thought to have been created due to the bison coats these soldiers wore in winter: I would love to see Gus in this kind of winterwear he'd have looked fierce. The term Buffalo Soldiers became a generic term for all African-American soldiers, and it is now used for US Army units that trace their direct lineage back to any of the African-American regiments formed in 1866. The idea that Gus' descendants might be able to trace their lineage back to him serving as part of the Buffalo soldiers is satisfying- African-Americans were fighting for this country as far back if not longer.
During the Civil War, the U.S. government formed regiments known as the United States Colored Troops, composed of African-American soldiers and Native Americans but this was disbanded in the fall of 1865. It would have been interesting to see how African-American soldiers and Native Americans got along and we do get a delicate vignette of it in Walker Independence's portrayal of Calian's and Gus' friendship- each of them admires the other, Calian's nobility 'always thinking of others' as Gus says and Gus' sense of duty 'this town needs you' as Calian says. One has to wonder if the disbandment of the African-American soldiers and Native Americans was not only due to the end of the Civil War but because of the fear of the potential threat of a strong alliance between these two population groups- Gus' desertion seems to imply he did not want to fight with the Apache because he perhaps did not agree with the brutality that the Buffalo soldiers might have begun to slaughter the Apache with, or because he might have realised that the Buffalo soldiers had no quarrel with the Apache.
In 1867, the Regular Army was set at ten regiments of cavalry and 45 regiments of infantry. The Army was authorized to raise two regiments of African-American cavalry and four regiments of African-American infantry who were mostly drawn from USCT veterans. In 1869, the Regular Army was kept at ten regiments of cavalry but cut to 25 regiments of Infantry, reducing the African-American complement to two regiments. Again one has to wonder if this was due to controlling African-Americans and not empowering them with formal army training.
From 1879 to 1881, portions of the Buffalo Soldier regiments were in New Mexico pursuing Chief Victorio and Chief Kas-tziden and their Apache warriors in Victorio's War. Victorio's War was an armed conflict between the Apache followers of Chief Victorio, the United States, and Mexico beginning in September 1879. Faced with arrest and forcible relocation from his homeland in New Mexico to San Carlos Indian Reservation in southeastern Arizona, Chief Victorio led a guerrilla war across southern New Mexico, west Texas and northern Mexico. I wonder if one of these Victorio Campaign skirmishes was the one where we see Calian and Gus meet for the first time in the episode 112: 'How We Got Here'. Chief Victorio fought many battles with the United States Army and raided several settlements until the Mexican Army killed him and most of his warriors in October 1880 in the Battle of Tres Castillos. After Victorio's death, Chief Kas-tziden led a raid in 1881.
Episode 112: How We Got Here
[convo between Calian and Gus on Apache tribal land]
Calian: I spoke to the others about you staying. It's gonna take time for some not to see you as an enemy.
Gus: Well, I guess we lead by example. Thank you for helping me, for giving me sanctuary. It's a place you go to find peace. It's safe.
Calian: Teach me more of those words.
Gus: [groans] Long as you teach me some of yours.

The Apache were first encountered by the Spanish conquistadors. The Spanish first used the term Apachu de Nabajo (Navajo) in the 1620s, referring to people in the Chama region east of the San Juan River. By the 1640s, they applied the term to southern Athabaskan peoples from the Chama on the east to the San Juan on the west.
Modern Apache people use the Spanish term to refer to themselves and so do the US government. This linguistic connection might explain the easy exchange between Calian and the Reyes' family, Calian taking the effort to learn and harmoniously converse with Mr and Mrs Reyes in contrast to Hoyt's uninterested attitude. However it should be noted that Apache language speakers also refer to themselves and their people in the Apache term Indé meaning 'person'/'people'. I would be interested to know if the Apache have a stronger preference to their own name Indé which references personhood more than the Spanish 'Apache' (which the French have also perversely appropriated to mean 'outlaw').
In 1875, United States military forced the removal of an estimated 1500 Tonto Apache from the Rio Verde Indian Reserve and its several thousand acres of treaty lands promised to them by the United States government. This breathtaking injustice is clearly illustrated in Walker: Independence's portrayal of Chief Taza's and now Calian's struggle to retain his tribal land. To heap further insult and injury, US Army troops made the Indé, young and old, walk through winter-flooded rivers, mountain passes and narrow canyon trails to get to the Indian Agency at San Carlos- this miserable trek killed several hundred of the Indé. The Indé were interned there for 25 years while Caucasian settlers took over their land. Only a few hundred ever returned to their lands. At the San Carlos reservation, the Buffalo soldiers guarded the Indé from 1875 to 1881- one wonders if this is the point where Calian and Gus met for the first time in the episode 112: 'How We Got Here' rather than one of the Victorio's Campaign skirmishes mentioned before.
Beginning in 1879, a Indé uprising against the reservation system led to the previously-mentioned Victorio's War between the band of Indé and the Buffalo soldiers. Again one has to wonder why these two population groups were pitted against each other- to stamp out any potential friendly relations between these more-disadvantaged groups?
Finally, most United States' histories of this era report that the final defeat of an Indé band took place when 5,000 US troops forced Geronimo's group of 30 to 50 men, women and children to surrender on September 4, 1886, at Skeleton Canyon, Arizona. And tragically, in the post-war era, the US government arranged for Indé children to be taken from their families for adoption by Caucasian Americans in assimilation programs.
Episode 109: Strange Bedfellows
[convo between Tom and Kai]
Tom: So the Tong would be willing to supply cheap labor, help set up infrastructure for saloons, hotels, what, anything?
Kai: The workers alone would bring more business, more money.
Tom: Yeah, but I'd be inviting organized crime into my town. Seems like more problems than I need.
Kai: You're the sheriff. Better you set the terms before they decide to do it for themselves.

The word tong means 'hall' or 'gathering place'. These organizations are described as secret societies or sworn brotherhoods and were initially created as voluntary benevolent associations for support and protection: one can see the laudable cultural collectivism evident in this kind of organization. The tong provided services for immigrants such as employment and housing opportunities- Walker Independence was light on these more benevolent origins of the Tong. They also helped resolve individual and group disputes within the community again showing the collectivistic approach.
Many of these volunteer societies, however, did not have the financial ability to fund community events or look after their members, and those that did tended to focus inward and provide help only to their own members. As a result, many tongs with little or no hereditary financial value had to either disband or operate criminal activities such as gambling houses and prostitution- this is where the Walker Independence portrayal of the Tong starts to be recognisable, this later transformation of the tongs from benevolent associations to providers of illegal services.
In the early years the tongs employed 'hatchet men' as hired killers to fight the street battles that ensued over turf, business and women- these fighters can be seen in episode 109: 'Strange Bedfellows'. This is probably why Hoyt seemingly describes them as fiercesome with his 'I knew a one-armed man in Omaha. Said the Tong took the other' and why Kai acts so threatened and cornered but as a former Tong is able to effectively and impressively fight himself out of the corner. This background might also explain why he and Tom have such an unusual affinity for each other with the both of them being forged into unwilling but skilled fighting-men- the brutality of the tong fighting ring that Kai was forced to fight in being akin to the brutality that Tom describes as both witnessing and perpetrating in self-defense when in an 1880s-1890s asylum. Out of all the characters in Walker Independence, Kai and Tom both seem to be most cognisant of the varied threats that Independence faces and are most willing to apply cold hard practicality to these threats.

olive green = Moskito
orange = Creek
strong green = Seminole
off white = Comanchee
grey = Tarahumra
darker grey - Yaqui
pale green = Apache
pale yellow = Lehca
teal blue = Lumbee
off yellow = Garifurna
pale blue = Pech
light teal blue = O'dham
the other small colours are just the small tribes of North Carolina and Oklahoma
context for the changes from OTL:
the five civilised tribes remain the majority in the Indian country ITTL, though large black (legally held as POW's) and white populations exist within the area. the five civilised tribes maintain a very very high birth rate, 13.5 births per woman. this ramp up in birth rates began with concerted efforts in the 1880's and 1890's. this was spearheaded by the tribal leadership, conservative women and the Orange Order (yes that Orange Order). this naturally led to a lot of kids, with Seqoyan oil being largely under state control, the profits were largely redirected into child care. in spite of oil money and the Orange Order providing badly needed child care, many Seqoyan families simply couldn't take care of their children leading to a new solution, send them east to various boarding schools in their ancestral homelands. this paired with wealthier Seqoyan's frequently choosing to move to their traditional homelands, especially the Seminole, led to their communities out in the south east being revived.
the Comanchee, on essentially a passing comment by Robert E Lee, were saved from their OTL fate of near annihilation. during Lee's presidency, the Comanchee were placed in a reservation running along the Texas New Mexico border where they could in his words "bother the Yankees with their barbarism". the Comanchee atleast in the south of their reservation have been transitioning to cotton over their traditional economy of looting and burning anything resembling a Yankee's house in the New Mexico desert.
the Apache were generally better treated by the CSA ITTL, the Lipan were allowed to remain on a reservation. they sometimes go north to join the Mescalero in raiding New Mexico. the Mescalero maintain a small reservation along the New Mexico border.
thoughts and questions would be appreciated

What is this tree / plant ?
Spotted in East Texas at a client's house. The home owner didn't know what it was either. I thought it was interesting. Anyone have any ideas on what this is?

2023.06.08 17:53 EasyNewzApp Texas floods are a reminder of how quickly weather patterns will shift.

Ag Twitter and Facebook groups are circulating pictures and videos of cows struggling to safety as flood waters rise. After three years of ongoing drought, the area has received rains over the last month, and areas received more than 2 inches in an hour last weekend.
Some of the region’s largest feedlots are near Hereford, Texas, where the rain was the heaviest. Initial estimates indicated deaths were 10,000 to 20,000, but this appears overstated. If anything, this could be a blessing for an area that has been short feed for several years now.
Our sources indicate farmers in the area may take prevent plant for the first time in decades, and cotton in west Texas will be way down this year. Sorghum and corn will be attractive alternatives, which may leave the area in a much better feed situation later this year. Northwest Texas's 14-day precipitation anomaly was anywhere from 300% to 700% of normal.
The worst of the flooding is now behind us as the following week shows the precipitation shifting toward the east, and the two-week outlook turns back to drying out. What was a scary few days for feed yards and a problematic planting window for farmers could end up a blessing for supplies in the region later this year. Just another reminder of how quickly the weather patterns can turn.
