I recall praise for Nancy Pelosi as the Democratic Party marched to control of all 3 houses and I meekly said but everything she says is rhetoric. AKA Meaningless. I’ve heard the Republican party remove the Affordable Care Act [ACA] only for Presidential veto. I’ve seen Paul Ryan tell a man whose life was saved by the ACA why it would be better for the USA if he had died.
*** OPINION ***
Yet why in Govt can the Republicans not replace the ACA even though their replacement was worse than repealing the ACA cold in terms of deaths and lost coverage – or how something as crass as the ACA was the best the Democratic Party could manage. Yet even the amoral Ryan’s tax break plan was not cold enough. Not bad enough for conservatives who did not feel it went far enough for their Freedom Caucus in making it impossible for a woman to get: Contraception advice: Maternity help: or to force them back to work after having a child: They’re all bitches eh! Quite what twisted fucks that caucus are is a matter of opinion. And much of that is my opinion some parts more informed than others and from a perspective.
*** FACT 🙂 ***
What is not a matter of opinion is that Govt is more complex than left and right want to believe. Why does the Govt not train more nurses and doctors? Do dis or dat? Today the Mosul offensive stops because even locals are astonished [shocked] at the US new kill 200 to get 2 scroats bombing policy comes into action. That lets blow up some Arabs rhetoric as policy not as effective as it sounded in the bloviating echo chamber?
Left and right seem to have missed out on 40 years of some progress in the way war, Govt and public services are conducted. Their idiot obsessions be it with controlling women, military power and overnight change are wrong, and their claims at common sense mere ignorance. They may even have been wrong in the 70s and 60s too…. but let’s not lump on the loons they are now after all increasingly in charge in the UK/US and much of the world.
*** More Opinion ***
One last opinion like a great friend of mine said of Left parties with the word Workers in their titles never having any workers. Freedom tagged groups belief in actual Freedom for actual normal people not men in suits bank balances.
As Theresa May [sic] hypocrited herself using anti Brexit arguments against the Scottish attempt to pour boiling water on its head much as the UK or England and Wales at least had done I was struck by the easy ride Nicola Sturgeon gets. Her main critics are the Scottish Tories pointing out her absurdist position, no one else does. Now I am not against Scottish Nationalism but it would make the risk of BrExit look like crossing an empty road without waiting for the lights to change.

Ok I held the line on Amazon… I tolerated the annoyance of finding a product and getting it nearly as cheap. The click and collectedness as delivery could be anytime. The lack of flexibility in delivery addresses etc. Then tried ebatteries.co.uk 2-5 days by Royal Mail. Then spent a month waiting till it was bleepin’ urgent. The goods now being sent from China by courier when I would not be there to collect them. As a non driver I can get to the Royal Mail’s depot but not some obscure estate in Poyle.
Then I used a one day delivery from the Amazon market place. In a further blow to protest Capitalism I got my money back thanks to PayPal. The moral of the story is a difficult one. Sure Amazon and other dump by using cheap money to undermine book shops – alternative view is they are making lots of money and keeping it hidden from tax.
In the end I will continue to source items away from Amazon but may avoid small companies that amount to a website and no obvious backup.
One criticism from secular Muslims, and some puddle drinking scum, of their less secular brethren is that they come to the West demand all the rights and protections they are only too happy to shed in their home land. Hence the Dutch and Germans are called NAZIs by protesting Turks who demand Western rights for their homeland’s leaders to come to the West to demand an end to those rights in Turkey.

With Tony Blair who won 3 elections and clearly many people at one time thought to some degree he represented them it is apparently sufficient to smugly say ‘Iraq’ and smile smugly turn away, argument done. Now Blair is a reprehensible reptile and Iraq was a mistake but it’s his support for despotic leaders not to mention torture and rendition that makes him truly nasty and a representative of the worst the world offers. Yet what if what he says is about something he is not paid to support? What if you don’t have an argument against it? Is your dismissal really so clever? Would you be happy if I brought up the time you punched someone, took some money, puked on a carpet, lied at work to someone else’s detriment, belittled someone or covered up a cock up? And dismissed anything you said. Continue reading “Judge Arguments Not People?”
I had a call from my accountant the other day apparently I could buy £300 of intimate meals, all my meals during the week and £300 of gift vouchers tax free, and am not. I also on 5th April become a Bronze card holder for British Airways. I am a racehorse owner without a mortgage or rent. Yes for someone who averages £25 grand a year for 15 years I am truly wealthy. Quite how a family of 4 survive with rent to pay on that is a question. Continue reading “Money for Nothing & Your Drinks For Free”
