The EU was set up to prevent German invasions. So the Germans are now facilitating a Syrian invasion.
There are now enough real-news outlets that rivalries have erupted. Inside the White House! Of course, the article itself is publshed by Fake News. So don’t believe a word.
Video of a Day, not Video of Today…
“Let me just say that fear is stronger than any wall. What we are seeing right now is the ‘Trump effect.’”
Heh. Not even Trump’s opponents can deny the power of the Trump Effect.
UPDATE: Thanks, commenters. Because of you, I won’t be shutting down comments for now. Also, things aren’t bad enough to warrant such a big change. If bigger problems arise, I’ll have to revisit. Original post below.
Now that heckler-for-hire Pluto is no longer able to comment, there aren’t that many comments on the blog. So I plan to turn off comments and remove all the bans I’ve placed on individual commenters. The bans sometimes affect more people than they should.
If you disagree, let me know why by commenting on this post before tomorrow morning.
I live in the Seattle area, and it’s booming beyond belief. But I’ve noticed a steady deterioration in customer service over the last year or so. When I ask some business “employee” to do something, I now assume it will not be done, and set a reminder for myself to call back and harass them until it gets done. No one seems to do their job anymore.
I blame it on the boom. An iron-worker who makes six figures told me that, when he signed up at the union hall a decade ago, they selected him in part because he used to be a college defensive tackle; they were looking for the toughest guys. But now, business is so red hot that virtually anyone can sign up to be an iron-worker.
It all hit home when I saw the process of deterioration in action for myself.
I went in for a routine blood draw. The clinic was opening a new branch, and the competent guy running the old branch was training his replacements – an Indian woman, and an Eastern-European woman.
Their incompetence must be seen to be believed:
When that guy leaves, any patient who goes to that clinic is doomed.
This is happening in all sorts of businesses, all over the Seattle area.
…”Day Without an Immigrant.”
As for a successful “Day Without” protest, a “Day Without Men,” would be unbeatable in its effects on the whole world.
