Finally some good news

Diablo Canyon to shut down.

Back in the day I protested against Diablo, had 2 ribs broken by the friendly police, spent a night in jail and lost my scholarship over that place.

Sitting on the river bank I will see the corpses of my enemies float downstream, I guess. It took long enough, that’s for sure.

But I’m glad that it will be replaced by renewable energy sources.

There is no bloomin’ way I will ever let go of the right to bear arms. Looks like the CIA enabled everyone else to be armed. Why can’t The People?

No Grexit… Just Brexit

Who knows what will come of this jingoistic referendum result. Lehman Bros. Mark 2? Nothing?

The EU has many problems, but it has done wonders in keeping the Germans and French from killing one another. No wars between W. European nations in 71 years ain’t bad.

 

My first impression is that the UK is going to be a net loser here. And on the bright side, the EU can now put some teeth into legislation against fiscal paradises (such as the Jersey Islands, Isle of Man, Gibraltar et al) that can no longer be protected by UK lobbying in Brussels. The US will lose a bit of influence in the EU without its particular lapdog roaming the halls of Brussels.

De Gaulle was right in vetoing the entry of the UK in the EU. And Brexit shows that man’s wisdom.

And now the overpaid Brits can start picking carrots and get all those “good jobs” taken by immigrants.

Lady’s bday, Real Madrid 11th European Cup win, and I’m finally fvcking free! Whatta day

I won’t mention my lady’s age, but today was her bday. I will mention that Real Madrid has just won its 11th European Cup (Champion’s League) which keeps it far ahead of any other team in Europe.

 

And I’ve finally closed my relationship with my boss, and have presented my first bill to my client for nearly 5,000 € (which is all mine, not to share with my fascist shithole boss).

 

So forgive me folks, I have a lot to celebrate! Fuck billary and rump…

tRump/Palin-equivalent for POTUS!

/snark off/

Ya know, if I didn’t love my kids and grand-kids, I’d find this funny.

Trump taps McCain’s VP lawyer to vet his vice president

“Nevertheless, I advised Sen. McCain that because her duties had never encompassed foreign policy or defense issues Gov. Palin would not be ready to be vice president on Jan. 20, 2009 — but that I believed she had the presence and wherewithal to grow into the position,” he wrote in The Wall Street Journal as the 2012 vice presidential process was underway. “I summed up her selection as ‘high risk, high reward.’ I stand by that advice.”

I still don’t know how I’ll vote, but Hillary will absolutely crush it in DE, so “my vote doesn’t matter(tm)” applies, here. At the beginning of the primaries she was the 17th or 18th worst candidate running. I’m going to look into whether we can write in our vote, or not (we use electronic voting, so possibly can’t).

At the every least, if Hillary is elected, she’s “free game” to you guys. Don’t expect me to defend her. Or her husband. I’m not some “disaffected youth/Bernie supporter”. I’ve voted in 11 POTUS elections, and Hillary vs. Trump is, by a large margin, the worst choice I’ve been presented.

I can understand younger voters viewing Hillary as the “here, break off a piece of ribbon candy from this dish” candidate, and tRump as the “old man yells at clouds” candidate. I just can’t understand why they’re our (likely) nominees. Maybe they think Bernis is yelling at clouds, too? I dunno.

The floor is yours (in more ways than one, think “can we get any lower?”, pardon the pun). Help me make sense of this madness…

Feel free to use the words “dismay” or “dismayed”. As in “i understand why you’re”…

But DON’T use the word “disappointed”, as in “I can understand why you’re disappointed.” !’ll rip you a new asshole for that.

I KNOW why I’m disappointed. We blew a hyooge opportunity, this year.
