The blight: It is galling to hear this woman talk about how she is bound to follow "the will of the people," i.e.g, the ridiculous referendum which said to a questions, shall we leave the EU? yes or no. The UK parliament is utterly gerrymandered and even so to stay in power this woman requires neanderthal Northern Irish.

On Brexit, the Guardian:

All worthwhile reading.



I am even more tired of being told or hearing the semi-justification for whatever Trump wants this week -- now us to pay billions for an idiotic wall -- is that he promised his "base" this. Therefore it's understandable, okay. What if he had promised his base to shoot to kill the next 10 non-white people he sees upon elected, would that be okay? Since when is a promise to a constituency to get them to vote for you a vow you must obey? Then I'm told or it's said "he's stubborn" What! the gov't left to rot, a quarter of all federal workers without pay they need, people driven like cattle to a border in order for them to catch one another's sickness, children dying in detention camps .... He promised this to a base and was elected so it's fine ...

From what I read this morning Trump is all set to destroy another 800,000 lives -- that's the quarter of the federal workforce now "shut down. He rejoices in firing 1/4th of the federal work force. After all Erdogan fired, imprisoned and murdered far more. And remember there are all the contracted people, from cleaning and food staff to IT people. What fun. Beats The Apprentice which gave the bankrupt washed up criminal type his new lease on predation. Then he could fire only one at a time.

A good article in the New Yorker

A win-win situation for the pest
Julie T: Yep, we are being held hostage by a bigoted, sexist, cruel minority & there seems to be no end in sight. Even 2 children dying seems to make them happy as they all pretend to worship Jesus.

Me: And it's no excuse: since when were campaign promises to a percentage of one's constituency taken as sacred vows? One which requires punishing so many others who didn't vote for him. Many more than two children have died, been ruined in all sorts of ways since he took office and put terrible people in charge of or with the Republicans destroyed the power of the various agencies there to help US citizens. One of the first things Assad did after Trump said he's pulling out is begin massacres in prison. The Saudis have a green light. Once you re-pollute an area it takes decades to even begin to stop. On the absurdity of talking about hs "promise:" I fear either way he wins: if he is not given this wall, he succeeds in firing a quarter of the federal workers force. He rejoices at shutting down the gov't and seeing all those suffer who use it in various ways too. If he gets his wall, he will ask for something yet more extravagant or take he is a semi-dictator even with a democratic congress.
