I don’t expect anything different in my life, once the idiots living on those insignificant islands off the coast of Europe leave the European Union. The only ostensible benefits—beside no more war between France and Germany—for me are the Euro—so I don’t have to change money and figure out the cost of items in a local currency (like now many dollars is one billion Italian lira?), whenever I travel to another country in Europe—and lack of passport controls, neither of which ever applied when I travelled to London. I had to show a passport and had to change money. That will be the same in the future. Only I will have to declare purchases and pay added taxes.
I expect that the people dumb enough to have voted to leave the EU will suffer the most. Supply chains will be disrupted, raising costs and increasing scarcity; and low-paid jobs will remain unfilled. I can’t see English people collecting trash, cleaning hotel rooms, or picking crops.
They will no longer have the EU to blame for all their shortcomings.
Many people have compared the Fool-With-The-Funny-Hair to Adolph Hitler. This is unfair to one of therm.
Hitler suffered severe injury serving his country in WW1. FWTFH avoided military service using dubious medical deferments and has never served his country.
Hitler was a powerful speaker without the aid of teleprompter, which did not exist in his life. FWTFH hs difficulty speaking even with the aid of a teleprompter.
Hitler is not known to have sought to enrich himself. FWTFH has repeatedly flaunted laws and used the presidency to enrich himself, his family, and his cronies.
Hitler believed that he was helping his country. FWTFH believes only in helping himself.
If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.
Cindy Hyde-Smith Says She Never Lost Faith in Mississippi’s Racists
By Andy Borowitz
JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI (The Borowitz Report)—Celebrating her election victory on Tuesday night, U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith said that, despite predictions that her state was ready to turn the page on its shameful past, “I never lost faith in Mississippi’s racists.”
“For weeks, we’ve been hearing national pundits say that Mississippi was ready to enter the twenty-first century,” Hyde-Smith told a crowd of supporters at her victory rally. “Tonight, with your help, we proved them wrong.”
Hyde-Smith said that, despite the media’s unearthing of a cavalcade of embarrassing comments and actions from her past, “I never doubted that, at the end of the day, the people of Mississippi would listen to the racist voices in their heads.”
Choking back tears, Hyde-Smith thanked her supporters for honoring Mississippi’s storied heritage of hatred and cruelty.
“Mississippi voters do not want to tear down the relics of our Confederate past,” she said. “As such a relic, I am eternally grateful.”
Exit polls showed that Hyde-Smith performed extremely well with voters who described themselves as bigots, and dominated among those who could not correctly spell “Mississippi.”
I find it painful to listen to the Clown-With-The-Funny-Hair, which is why I always grab the remote and switch channels, whenever his bloated, painted face appears. One notices that, whenever he opens his mouth, whatever little brain he has comes tumbling out when trying to form what become unintelligible sentences and/or phrases. One understand what these are called sound bites: the pain of being bitten: there is pain in being bitten.
Mueller Offers Cyber Monday Plea Deals
By Andy Borowitz
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Robert Mueller’s announcement that he would be offering Cyber Monday plea deals touched off hysteria among disgraced Trump associates desperate for the chance to score a drastically reduced sentence.
Moments after the office of the special counsel went live with its Cyber Monday Web site, Sing4Bob.com, thousands of Trump cronies flooded it with traffic, causing the site to briefly crash.
Harland Dorrinson, the member of Mueller’s team who masterminded the Cyber Monday sale, said that the special counsel was offering a limited number of “prison doorbusters,” with sentences up to seventy-five per cent off.
“I’m not surprised that people are going crazy for these bargains,” Dorrinson said. “Otherwise, you could go to trial and face one of those Obama judges.”
He said that Mueller’s Cyber Monday sale was benefitting from a piece of fortuitous timing, since it was being held on the same day that the former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos was scheduled to report to prison for a two-week sentence.
“Everyone who goes on the site is looking for a Papadopoulos special,” he said. “Those were all gone in the first five minutes.”
The political circus caused by the British decision to leave the European Union is probably not big news in other parts of the world. After months of back and forth negotiation, the winners and loser are quite evident. Many expected discordance amount the 27 members of the EU. This didn’t happen. All the dissonance was in the UK, especially within the ruling Conservative party.
Everyone (except some, not all, British politicians and commentators) see the UK government as being incompetent, yet arrogant. They decided to leave, but showed up to negotiations with no plans, only to be meet by people on the other side of the table who were well-prepared.
The EU has presented a unified front and have agreed to divorce bill, which must be approved by the British Parliament. Many see this approval as unlikely. Chaos will ensue, as the UK economy will grind to a halt without an agreement on trade.
Conservative politicians sitting comfortably in their London clubs, descendants of those that sat in the same seats and sent countless soldiers to their deaths around the world, will not suffer as much as the common citizens they claim to represent.
The biggest hypocrites are the British contingency of EU parliament members. They campaigned to leave, but will gladly accept their EU pensions for the rest of their lives. They do not care what havoc they have wrecked.
Have you seen the news item about the Christian jerk, who claimed that God told him to convert the primitive natives of the Andaman Islands. He must not have got the message about God telling them to kill anyone that tried to bring them religion.
That’s the thing about so-called missionaries: arrogance. Which might only be eclipsed by their stupidity.
This guy did not deserve any better…
This explains why I am not polite to Jehovah”s Witness idiots, who ring my doorbell, disturb my peace and quiet, and demand to save me. Stupid people can do whatever they want, no matter how idiotic. Just leave other people alone. I don’t care what they think their god tells them.
America was “great”, when its leader was not crooked, beholden to a brutal leader of a desert tribe, and the laughingstock of the world. With the current “so-called leader”, all one must do is wave money in his face to get away with murder…or worse. Or anything he wants.
And, he seems to have changed the name of the national holiday from Thanksgiving to Thanks-taking.
Don’t you just love the power of religion?
A megachurch conman in Korea claimed that god ordered him to rape women. If tried in some states in the US, he would be acquitted and honored.
