It’s an interesting moment in American history. More here.
I would like to avoid weddings and funerals, but I still attend. Too many friends have died, too many weddings start with good intentions and end up as train wrecks.
Fredd – Political humor: pretty funny, in a hostile kind of way.
Some not-so-hostile political humor: Recently elected Democrat governor of Illinois, J.B. Pritzker, is the largest serving governor in the U.S., currently, at roughly 360 pounds, depending on what he had for breakfast.
J.B. was cruising around in his limo, checking out on his constituents in and around Chicago, when his chauffeur got confused as to where they were, and he needed to get back onto Interstate 290.
J.B. asked the driver to pull over by the next constituent they saw, and the driver pulled up to a man walking his dog. J.B. leaned out the window and asked, ‘how do I get to 290?’ And the constituent, ever helpful, replied ‘drop about 70 pounds and you’re in the ball park.’
Keep it up, Fredd. It’s open season on politicians. I saw a video of Beto, the Fake Mexican, trying to change a tire. I’m sure that will pull in a couple of votes.
China has a lot going for it, but there are huge endemic problems like having a population comprised of 75% men, the swine flu and grand blunders in agriculture. They’re tough people and they have a hope that they can muddle through. I’m sure that they will. But it’s far short of what they want. Bungling Hong Kong is an epic political miscalculation that is still playing out. I think that they’re going to end up killing almost all of the pigs. Hopefully they don’t treat the citizens of HK the same way.
“Denmark essentially owns it,” he said. “We’re very good allies with Denmark, we protect Denmark like we protect large portions of the world. So the concept came up and I said, ‘Certainly I’d be.’ Strategically it’s interesting and we’d be interested but we’ll talk to them a little bit. It’s not No1 on the burner, I can tell you that.”
