    • The NYTimes Reveals More Than It Means
      Watch this video. It’s only 39 seconds. It’s worth it. What’s interesting to me about this video is NOT what Bernie says, it’s the reaction. It’s how genuinely uncomfortable the people interviewing him (The NYTimes editors) are. They really think he’s saying something terrible. Something awkward. Something embarrassing.

Would you like to lose your fingers or your tongue?

The UK is having a general election this Thursday, brought on by the inability to decide whether to do a hard exit from the EU.

We don’t have to rehash how the U.K. got here except to say that white working class voters were lied to through sophisticated propaganda synthesized by helpful data firms like Cambridge Analytica. But the primary cause of this insanity is that prime minister David Cameron allowed a “Should we exit the EU?” Question on the ballot without first asking, “Should we do preliminary inquiries as to the feasibility and economic impact that leaving the EU will have on Britain?”

I don’t know. Maybe Nigel Farrage and Cameron thought that would be too many words. “Don’t you little people worry about it. Let the House of Commons waste their time hashing it out over an extended period of time!”

So the general election is going to be between Boris “blonde boy running with scissors!” Johnson and wishy washy, might be an anti-Semite, lackluster supporter of Remain Jeremy Corbyn.

What’s so crazy about this election is that now that the voters know what’s at stake that they have to choose from equally unpalatable candidates and the choice is turning out to be difficult.

It would be like us trying to decide between Trump and Bernie Sanders.

Yeah, not digging it.

Anyway, the podcast GOT Academy has a rundown on the election here. This should brighten your day before the Impeachment Inquiry.
