Janurary the last
It seems I am not allowed to use the actual name of the event that will take place on Sunday. Pretty much everything I publish online is clearly marked as "public domain," because my heirs can make their own money if they are so inclined and talented. The NFL is not so secure.
Frankly, I think football is dreadful, given that it is rehearsal for war, not to mention all that traumatic brain injury. I'll be at my local school district's budget hearings this year, urging the assholes to abandon football (and football's enormous insurance costs) for the upcoming year.
Most likely outcome: bleeding forehead from being beaten against brick wall. Forehead: mine.
Yes, the Trans-Pacific Partnership is NAFTA on steroids, and will do extraordinary damage to working Americans while making a shitload of money for Big Money. Obama is looking for fast-track authority, of course, since he's in the pocket of Wall Street. Most likely, he'll get it.
If Elizabeth Warren votes to give him that authority, so help me, I never will vote for anybody, ever again.
Erdogan, of course, is totally corrupt. So is everybody else, almost certainly including the opposition. Should we pull our money out of Turkey, South Africa, Brazil and whatnot, and toss it into Germany and Austria?
That's what's happening. Put it in the USofA. It, too, is totally corrupt, but better protected. Nobody is dropping the smart bombs on us now, but maybe there are some targets that deserve it. The rest of us... well, the rest of us...
When they blow us up, maybe we'll deserve it.
