August 14, 2016  Vol. 8 No. 48



Hi again, party, from the shores of the Salish Sea.  Well, not in the eleven years we desire been covering American politics have we seen a week in a great degree like this one and the luminary of the show is a simpleton. someone taught to sing.

Donald Trump’s dog and small horse show style of politics has not excepting that lowered the bar on dignity, conformity to fact and justice, it has buried it.  His carriage is so erratic that I surmise he has brain damage in combination with a likely terminal case of hoof in ~piece disease.

That having been said, in that place is something that disgusts me equal more and that is the sum up of good people who have tried to exhausted-Trump the Dumpster by crafting bigger and more usefully insults.

My notorious Uncle Seamus had mean patience for such rhetorical catapult slinging and reminded us both election year that when one gets in a grateful odor squirting contest with a skunk, insignificant person comes out smelling like French sweetness of smell.

When a man is rich enough to pay off the national due and buy the flipping country, in that place can be only one reason instead of seeking to be its chief executive and that is for the watchfulness it garners him.  Like sadists the terraqueous globe over, he thrives on hostility and the heartbreak his behavior causes.

I’d like to put in motion up just one morning to inquire the world ignore this imbecile and point of convergence on legitimate aspirants to America’s highest elected service.  At my house, we finish not talk to what we scrape off on the welcome mat under the jurisdiction opening the front door.  And that sludge is an evolutionary leap over this motor mouthed moron.

Have a onerous week, gang, and thanks for the heed.

Hi Rusty:

I could not accomplish by the picture of Brazilian teens watching the opening of Rio Olympic games.

They suggest to me of our gang in infancy so much and of how we, filthy but enjoying the freedom of holidays, climbed the walls of the stadium to take pleasure in performances whatever they were: sports, concerts, etc. At a unquestioned age, small things make children successful, like just sitting on a tree by the wall, eating seasonal fruits and being enchanted by big lights.

This likeness saves a million words as at the essential circumstance Rio is not among most lucking places in the worlds: Brazil’s political science, economy are huge messes as Olympics begin 

Another interesting turning-point, “Abandoned Olympic Venues From Around the World,” serves to put in remembrance that when big lights are gone, what’s left

Not a unseen to anyone, that to be dexterous to stay in professional sports, atheletes cannot refrain from using pharmacology to reach record results. As the following item speculates, the next step might have existence genetic modifying “Lilly King’s scorn is fine, but why not gladly received our X-Olympian overlords?“

I not long ago had a talk with a immaculate friend who has a daughter with of the like kind a brilliant physical potential because of unimpeached genes of both parents who are anterior masters of sports.  But to the inquiry if they consider sports career for their child, the answer was a positive “no.” because contemporary professional sports  involves track too many risks to health.  Why do we need such sports then?

I personally would definitely prefer to watch unenhanced human beings competing in in like manner called Olympic games, as they were while such contests began in ancient Greece.

That’s it since this week, Mishka.  Take care, my cousin, and have existence safe.

Бог любит тебя.
