"TM seems to be hoping that they win, and that winning will result in their moderating. Personally, I think that's unlikely wishful thinking, ..." Me too.

I liked Iggy's analysis so much I wanted to amp it up a bit.For guys like TM it's not easy to accept that the left and the Dems mean what they now say. And with that reluctance comes an unrealistic expectation that they will come to their senses and return to an FDR style of liberalism once the despicable DJT, who drives them mad, has been vanquished. That comes close to magical thinking IMO, but if that is their viewpoint they see the altogether predictable reaction to Dem/Marxist lunacy as making a correctable situation worse.In many ways extending benefit of doubt to those following the footsteps of history's deadliest follies means withholding said benefit from those maintaining the resolve that saved the world from them time after time. (It appears my hypocrisy plagiarism knows no bounds)

Narciso: "does that involve the molecular signature"? I hesitate to speculate ... oh what the hay ... Perhaps a technique that initiates a chemical reaction with the unknown and detects side products. eg. "Colorimetric assays result in a colored reaction product that absorbs light in the visible range." https://www.corning.com/catalog/cls/documents/application-notes/CLS-DD-AN-458.pdf
"Mostly these are in the visible spectrum, but IR is possible" I know who to ask. Will let you know what they think.
Seems like a typhuspad lockout. 2nd try ... DrJ, what about near IR? (Michelson)
"In principle I have a method that can distinguish easily between fentanyl, other opiods, and stimlants, and give concentrations of each" DrJ, a couple of the companies I worked for make hazmat spectrometers. If you like I can see if any of them might be interested based on nothing more than what you've written here.
The dimorats, and leftists in MSM, academia, TV, etc ... would be happy to destroy damage the economy. When they get full control they'll just fix it. Won't be just as good as Trump's but it will be good enough and better than we deserve. Some here are not okay with the idea that Trump believes he might have to allow some damage to avoid the kind of PR that would sink reelection, believing he can fix it in his 2nd term. Unlikely speculation, but IMO if such beliefs were true, I would be okay with that choice. I doubt Trump has anybody he can trust to know any of this for sure. I bet he's trying to do the least amount of damage possible. Pretty sure Trump want's none of this sh!t.
"what I can't figure about his views" Maybe TM sees the problems with dimorat methods but feels a lot of their cultural goals are worthy.
A Rush caller just pointed out that Doomsayers always get a "win". Either they're proven right or they're happy to be wrong. Then Rush points out even when they're happy to be wrong they can take credit for preventing the doom by "warning" everybody to prevent it.
"These studies usually leave out ..." Information not allowed to be spoken. Society pretends certain things are true because they are supposed to be. Harmless to pretend every person is born the same and all differences must be privilege or oppression. Then "studies" are needed to prevent the harmless pretenses from being mugged by reality.
"I think you misspelled "behave" there. Which of course is usually the issue, along with involvement in violent crime" Math is hard, but last June I laid out charts and numbers to support this. https://justoneminute.typepad.com/main/2020/06/pick-a-name/comments/page/9/#comment-6a00d83451b2aa69e20263e95189c9200b Bottom line: Nothing proved or disproved, but there are 2 explanations for disparity in police shootings. Police are racist; For every 1000 violent crime arrests about 2 people are shot by police, regardless of race.I suspect the 2nd holds for class as well as race. Apply Occam's razor or not, but don't pretend the only explanation is police bias.

"does anyone think they're just kidding?" IMO their fantasy of revenge for losing the 1st civil war.

If I was buying one today I'd probably get this one. https://www.amazon.com/Weller-WE1010NA-Digital-Soldering-Station/dp/B077JDGY1J/ref=psdc_13837391_t3_B000AS28UC

And for us the the problem is with “normal.” Yes we found out that "normal" was a sham for our side. "Normal" was coasting along in Potemkin dellusion while out betters plotted how best to transition from "life liberty and pursuit of happiness" to "from each according to whiteness, to each according to unfairness".

I design and prototype circuit boards and code firmware for spectrometers. Solder sucker, can be very handy.

"Lots of the businesses and jobs are already gone and not coming back" Yeah but compare that to the South after the civil war. Marxism is slavery for all, and the slavers in the party of slavery want revenge.

"Things could get ugly" Not that they aren't already pretty ugly. I mean ugly ugly.

"I'm more optimistic. In my view the left has greatly overplayed its hand" I agree with this, though perhaps somewhat guardedly. Things could get ugly. TM does not surprise me. He's been tracking my take on his views right along. For him the problem is Trump. All the insanity is due to him and once he's gone everything goes back to normal, or at least a lot better than this. And we will all work together and they will stop hating us, if they ever did, and we will be remorsefully chastened. I don't know if that's crazier than what's been going on, but I think it might be.

MT: "there wasn’t anyone in our group stupid enough to believe you could conjure a model of that and get within an order of magnitude of the actual test results" IMO that is almost universally applies to models used for any public policy. Engineering and physics can make that sort of thing work well when based on "actual test results". Social science and/or climate science models on the other hand are not testable and always seem to produce results in line with some public policy goal. The expectation is all models are good science and everyone, even engineers and physicists, who disagree are therefore "deniers".
