Comment on How Bad Can It Get? by R J Adams

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 12:50:37 +0000

Twilight - re Oprah, I agree - but it could be Zuckerberg (the age limit is 35, but he's 33 now so might just squeeze by), or one of the other tech multi-billionaires, or possibly an artificial intelligence robot they've created. Or, Chelsea Manning - I've believe she's hoping to stand for Congress in Maryland. Think of the most unlikely person and wager every penny you have on them. It should be a safe bet! As for the U.K., it's difficult to know which has the worst government right now, the U.S. or the Brits.

Re Oprah ~ The only thing on this front to be thankful for, is that Primary voting day, for the General in November 2020, is a long way away. I hope that by then (if I make it that far) this flippin' Oprah for Prez lark will have "gone with the wind". It could be, though, that some even more crazy choice will be in full flight, being dangled before our dazed eyes by then. I'm not up to date of British political goings on, so will just read along and sigh on that front. Re chin adornment for males - I quite like a neatly trimmed beard, but this unkempt look is, well, uncouth - a bit loutish. Hardly any guy can get away with it, and if one did, that guy would need to be ultra-charismatic. Notably none of your examples comes near, or anywhere at all within that area, region, continent, world, planet... or universe! :)

WWW - and a belated Happy New Year to you, too. Yes, this world is becoming stranger by the day. Twilight - reminds me of that old scout motto: "Dyb Dyb Dyb, Dob Dob Dob, and Be Prepared!"

Happy New One, RJ and Mrs RJ ! What'll it be like? Much like the Old One I dare say. We'll hope for better, while preparing for something a tad worse. :-/

Like your good self I take issue with all the cries of anti semitism when it comes to any objection and outcry against the continuing oppression of the Palestinians by Israel. We're in a very strange world, RJA, Alice in the Looking Glass. The Emperor Wears no Clothes, men "feeling" like women and storming women's washrooms with the approval of governments, billions of dollar walls and the Orange Tool. Happy New Year to you and the missus. XO WWW

Twilight ~ many thanks for the kind felicitations. Still suffering the ignominy of being medically poked and prodded from time to time, but hopefully matters are gradually improving. I was fine till I contracted the flu (le grippe!) back in November, and it was downhill from there. Managed to have a good Christmas, though. Best wishes for the New Year to you and yours.

Oooh - from the previous post (which I missed due to seasonal distractions) I notice you've been unwell - I do hope you're feeling better now, RJ! I see they're still playing at silly devils over there - they've always been good at it, but not as good as their cousins across the Pond. (Ooh, look I've used all the 'there' variations in one sentence!) Wishing you and Mrs RJ a good 2018, with more robust health, peaceful surroundings, and pleasant events awaiting.

Comment on Brexit Is Broken – But No-One’s Going To Mend It by R J Adams

Twilight ~ Trump, Brexit - add to those North Korea, an escalating Sunni v. Shia crisis in the Middle East, and of course the ever-expanding militarism of the U.S., and it all points to a spiraling downhill slide from which humanity may have problems digging itself out. Or, is that the understatement of the century?

The vote of Brits for Brexit; the ascension of Trump to the U.S. presidency: two nightmare scenarios I'd never have imagined possible. Each of those situations continues to grow more bizarre by the day . I used to think British politicians, and high level civil servants, even when not in line with my own political leanings, at least had their feet planted firmly on the ground and had a good, mature, understanding and experience of how to do the jobs the people have asked them to do . I used to think that way, but no longer. The whole Brexit scenario seems, to me, like a very dark Monty Python sketch.

WWW - yes, indeed, the 1% will make a killing. The Electoral Commission is presently investigating whether 'Vote Leave, fronted by Boris Johnson (now Foreign Secretary) and Michael Gove (now Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs), spent more than the 7m allowed during the campaign. They did, of that there is no doubt. The Democratic Unionist Party of NI was party to illegal donations filtered through Northern Ireland. The whole process stinks like a skunk-infested sewer, which is just about what the British parliament has become. Whether the EC will have the powers to do much about it is debatable. Personally, I doubt it.
