Hey Allan! It is Eastertime over here in the utterly confused almost unconstitutional kingdom of the unrealOranges and we lost interest in that even more confused Irrepublic across the soiled pond. I told you before I still support and like your satire, but the subjects are so stupid, ridiculous, undemocratic, trumpid, deranged, corrupt, weird and, yes, guilty, that we are dumbstruck. And now our own MP has lost it, or, to be more precise, couldn't hide his lack of integrity any more. Formation of a new coalition seems to have become impossible. FYI, he lied five times in 10 years…
The worst kind of dim witted representative we have over here is a corona denyer. He is actually smart, with one little flaw - he uses his wit in a stupid way.
Gun fetishists can be found in the criminal and terrorist corners of our society but not in parliament. Boebert would never ever have any chance of getting elected in whatever political body in our country. She would be in jail. Here's an example of an arms legislation in a civilized state:
Arms legislation in the Netherlands
In the Netherlands, the Weapons and Ammunition Act is known as part…
A vegan only diet for selected Muppet cast members? Not for Cooky Monster I hope? Cruel! Could be good for Miss Piggy though. Might help her fight covidesity.
You are soooo right, Manny Otiko! A few remarks:
- There never ever has been a colored relative in any Western European Royal family;
- The Royals over here are pretending they are neutral, but most of them are right wing billionaires;
- Our King William I (1772-1843) stimulated slavery in Indonesia, earned millions by initiating an economic system of oppression aimed at bleeding the colonies;
- 600.000 slaves were imported in Indonesia since the 17th century;
- The foundation of Western European Monarchies is Christianity, the King was seen as chosen by God; any other religion was seen as…
I read this:
I find this quite impressive and much more than appointing Susan Rice and starting up with a spate of executive orders. Am I wrong? (I am NOT an American white democrat, nor a blind fan of this administration. I want to understand. The election of Biden/Harris felt like a big relief. Am I wrong?
Because I am trying to understand what the Biden/Harris administration is actually doing to fulfill its promises, I look for the first signs. Is this a sign, or not:
Will it begin to stop the sky from falling?
Keep us posted, Marley. Up to now I get the usual daily notice (green dots) of everyone I am following. But I notice the same tendency you indicate: too much tech, too much PS I love you kind of stuff (not in my selection of preferred issues), hard to find older work. more trolls and bigots. Less black writers? I will pay attention to that. Read work of five of them today.
Didn't know of Kimbal, but I think I like him more too. Clever guy - earning $ 26.500.000 with shares tweeted upwards by his brother. He didn't need an ex-slot machine for that. May be you should try a Gorilla next time, according to Burton Malkiel. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burton_Malkiel
I do not know of a Don the Con golf gourse over here. We have a secret storage of US Cruise missiles, a very dumb ambassador with Dutch roots and too many fast food joints with American roots.
What would I write to someone with a delusional pov? I wouldn't write her, because…
Again: cristal clear, mr Otiko. I wonder what legal means are available in the USA for registering, incriminating, prosecuting and sentencing of discrimination. (if this is easy to find on the internet, I will try to find the answers myself). Over here (NL) the first article of the Constitution is the foundation for all acts against discirmination. There is an anti-discrimination hotline/website, charges can be filed with the Anti-discrimination Service, the police or the Commission for Human Rights. The system is not yet foolproof, but there is some progression. Systemic institutional discrimination is now an issue in many agenda's of progressive and political parties. Too late, but we are learning.
