    More election

    Found this on one of my leftie american politics sites:

    Don’t Cry for Me, Kunduz
    Edward Snowden has been sending around this gripping photo of weepy Obama staffers overcome at the prospect of Trump’s visit to the White House. Oddly, they never shed tears when of their drones bombed a Yemeni wedding party or their jets blew up a Doctors Without Borders hospital.


    Nice. The amazing thing about the SJWs is how they honestly think that electing a head of state is about their personal feels. They owe the rest of america a debt - which they will never acknowledge - for saving them from an HRC presidency.

    And on Paul Krugman:

    The Short Happy Life of Paul Krugman
    Paul (“Jill Stein cost HRC the election”) wasn’t good at math. That’s why he became an economist. He wasn’t good at logic either. That’s why he became a New York Times columnist.
    The end.

    What's your take on Corbyn Wombat?

    Is he more of the identity (d)riven modern left or a return to the collective bargaining of the old days?
    I work in financial planning. I am interested in metal (all kinds), miniature painting and PC gaming. I live in Scotland.

    Don't know enough about him, apart from the obvious: that he's pretty old and popular with the kind of people who - in America - voted for Trump. Left and right don't matter any more. Societies and politics are polarising around the "money" axis.

    This much is true. He has been in Parliament since the Mesolithic, but he has always rebelled against the line. I think he's a bit like Sanders. I don't think he'll amount to much, but the Government are fools if they underestimate him.
