Really hard to believe

All this save the planet stuff in the media and on the streets… what’s the point?
Politicians will do nothing because they are all old and they won’t be around to see the impending disaster, let alone live through it. Or die through it, as the case may be.
So, the real problem is the old. Why keep them? says McCluskey… 62.

Earlier last week I saw a video of the Orange Shit Gibbon from a big press conference from 2018. Here is the link for the video but I don’t know how long it will remain available.
Enjoy! or despair!
or both.
40 seconds of brilliance:

Fearing that it might disappear from the internet, I actually wrote down what he said word for word because I was so shocked. It is beyond incredible. This is it … an exact transcription (I swear I am not nventing this, it is absolutely real.)
«If you look at Mister Pillsbury, the leading authority on China, he was on a show…  I won’t mention the name of the show… and he was saying that China has total respect for Donald Trump and for Donald Trump’s very very large… brain»
Breath-takingly incredible!

Let’s mix some sex and racism here…
A Somali-American supermodel Halima Aden has become the first Muslim model to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated wearing a burkini.People only buy this magazine for the soft porn swimsuit calendar.
She is on the front page of the annual swimsuit issue and the (skin tight) burkini covers the entire body except the face, hands and feet.Skin tight!
Her quotes are a brilliant example of a total lack of self-awareness.
«I’m so honoured that Sports Illustrated has taken the step to showcase the beauty that modestly dressed women possess.»
Modesty???  as she strikes a sexy pose in a magazine, especially published for men and known for objectifying women.
These women are just dumb. But rich. Oh!

Now that you have your own Primark in Sevilla, you may be interested to hear that the rumours of them going on-line are totally false. A company spokeman said that the «combination of in-store design, shopping experience and amazing prices is what makes Primark so attractive».
Yeah, right!.That bland uniform lighting and lack of windows and scattergun presentation of things you expect to see and others that you didn’t, gently pulls you into mindless consumerism and you fill that basket just like everyone else.
Are we so easily manipulated?
I am.
An on-line option would be business suicide for them: people would go online to buy a pair of €8 pair of shoes that they can throw into a bush while staggering home from a drunken night out, but that’s all they’d buy.
Their whole business model is based on people going in for one thing, and coming out with 100 nail files, two pairs of slipper socks, a Game of Thrones nightie, a couple of tee shirts, a net container for washing bras, a double pack of baby wipes, more socks, a blanket, a fun whiskey flask, a rain coat, wrapping paper, and a hat that you’ll never wear, not even once – you’ve never worn a hat in your life.
The total will come to an amount that surprises you, because, well, wasn’t everything only a couple of euro? But you pay it happily anyway, content with your brown paper bags (the most solid thing they have) and happy with the bargains.
That wasn’t a rant. That was a description of my visit to Primark in Sevilla some weeks ago.

Cesar Arnoldo Gómez, 50, a Mexican, was violent to his wife and she divorced him.  The judge ordered him to stay away from the ex.
But instead, being the macho jealous type, he dug a tunnel underneath her  house to spy on her. He wasn’t a civil engineer (or if he was, he must have studied in Sevilla!!). He became accidentally trapped in the tunnel for 24 hours and despite calling for help, no one heard him.
Finally the desperate scratching sounds got the woman’s attention. They found the tunnel, along with several knives and water bottles and inside the tunnel was Cesar. When rescuers arrived he refused to leave the tunnel and had to be dragged out. He is now in jail.
Love, huh?
And he’s 50.

There was a tweet two weeks ago from the official army of India… it’s worth reproducing it:
«For the first time, an #IndianArmy Moutaineering Expedition Team has sited Mysterious Footprints of mythical beast ‘Yeti’ measuring 32×15 inches close to Makalu Base Camp on 09 April 2019. This elusive snowman has only been sighted at Makalu-Barun National Park in the past.»
It even has photographs.
While not fake, there is no such thing as a yeti, but it’s fun to speculate on the origin.  I’m betting on them being the giant’s foot prints from Game of Thrones. As much chance as the yeti.

We’ll all die. No matter what we specify, our remaining relatives will have us prayed over in a church prior to burial.
The family also pick the music played at the end of the sad ceremony.A list was published recently by the Church of England of the most popular mucis. I laughed.
Who wants to go out to these?
1. My Way – Frank Sinatra  (a lie for everyone)
2. Time to Say Goodbye – Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman (and don’t let the door hit you on the arse on the way out!)
3. Over The Rainbow – Eva Cassidy (the Judy Garland version is reserved for gays)
4. Wind Beneath My Wings – Bette Midler (the women in the congregation inevitably join in, and the dead are suddenly happy that they don’t have to hear it)
5. Angels – Robbie Williams  (Seriously?)
6. Supermarket Flowers – Ed Sheeran  (Honestly, I have no idea)
7. Unforgettable – Nat King Cole  (at least until the inheritance is spent)
8. You Raise Me Up – Westlife  (Wishful thinking?)
9. We’ll Meet Again – Vera Lynn  (No, you won’t)
10. Always Look on the Bright Side of Life – Eric Idle  (Hilariously, the only one with any sort of religious connotation.. from Monty Python!!!)
So, what music would you be hoping for?
And more interestingly, what do you think your relatives would choose?

The Orange Shit Gibbon, according to himself, was right all along. Obama wasn’t born in America. It takes some serious inventigation to see the truth that he sees. Huawei… that’s some place in China, isn’t it? Obama is Chinese, and Trump a genius.
(If you weren’t aware of it, Obama was born in Hawaii.)

The secretary of state for something in the US, Mike Pompeo, is in Europe peddling the usual bullshit…  to the English, this time.
Brexit? Great!Europe? Bad!Putin? Friend!
Mexicans? Baaaad hombres!
Climate change? Nonsense!It should also be remembered that Fatboy Pompeo is a Harvard educated idiot who thinks a melted Arctic will provide new opportunities for trade routes.

Did you go to the Feria this year?
The fun fair?
You don’t know what you might have missed. There is a group of people who like to go on roller coasters in a less conventional way. A roller coaster is that long track that goes up and down on which you travel in a box on wheels. It can be frightening and yet exhilarating. But this group… and I am talking about people in their 40s and 50s… like to do it naked.
They get on the ride wearing loose fitting clothes that can easily be removed along the first slow climb. Too late to stop now. And off they go, clothes and carriage. These clubs (yes! official clubs!) operate in several countries and they travel all over Europe and America to roller coast naked. There is even a Guinness book record of the number of naked fools on a roller coaster: 193.
I think climate change cannot happen quickly enough. I welcome the oncoming disaster when I read stuff like this.
So, next year at the Feria, I’ll bet that you will be wondering…And it would be funnier if their clothes blew away during the ride.

If you talk with serious mental health professionals, they will tell you that body dismorphia is a serious problem and is usually linked with the genitalia. Those suffering from it can go as far as suicide, especially after ridding themselves of the offending outcropping. Incidentally, I love the use of «las verguenzas» in Spanish (literature only?) to signify the genitalia. 
However, whatever definition you give to gender, a he can’t become and she and a she cannot become a he.
Nevertheless, health systems in Europe and the US and Asia offer «gender realignment» surgery.
But not the Chinese. So what do these prospective «transgender» people do there?
They take (unsafe) hormones and do surgery on themselves. So say Amnesty International. They are quoted as saying…
«An alarming lack of knowledge and expertise within the country’s public health system, as well as restrictive eligibility requirements, has made it almost impossible for trans people to access safe hormone therapy or other gender-affirming treatment.»
Gender affirming? WTF?
For men who want to be eunuchs? How did the Boxer rebelion go for those «lads»?
In what must be music to the ears of the right wing everywhere (VOX again), the Chinese officially classify «trans people», or gender dismorphs, as having a mental illness. China has no LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex) anti-discrimination laws.How many more letters of the alphabet can they add on there?
One gender dismorph, among a surprisingly large number interviewed by Amnesty researchers recalled his (not her!!) trauma after attempting «gender-affirming» surgery on themselves.How can I laugh and squirm simultaneously? I am a heartless man, you shout.
Huiming*, 30, from Hangzhou said: “I thought I was an abnormal person,” He  was born with male sex characteristics, i.e. is a man, but identified as female.
So he tried to cut his own genitals off. And that’s not a definition of abnormal????
He got half way through (ugh!) before being discovered and taken to hospital. They sewed them back on.
This is quite common in China.
Try not to laugh!A later visit to Thailand and he is now a eunuch. Not a woman!
This takes the expression «do-it-yourself» to new and frightening levels of incompetence.

At the approach of the summer (which isn’t evident where I am) there is yet another campaign about avoiding situations leading to the possibility of contracting cancer, sunshine, smoking etc.
All very well, you say.
And they add the line «Cancer doesn’t discriminate».
So, that makes cancer morally superior to VOX.

With the approach of the European elections, just after the Spanish general election, the failed candidates from the latter must be rushing forward to be candidates in the former like a huge herd of wild horses. Given what I hear and read of most of the candidates and their party leaders, they would all be intellectually outclessed by the houses.
If you had a difficult time voting a few weeks ago, how deep is your despair now?Democracy! Just like anal sex… given to us by the ancient Greeks. And just as welcome.

love and blessings be heaped upon you allf
