I’ve got a tip for Ramirez and his ilk.A lot of french products, like wine, cognac, many cheese, are labelled “AOC” (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée). Seeing you are not above using a lie or two, spread some pictures of Cognac and Bordeaux bottles clearly displaying AOC, say they all are owned by Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, call her a hypocrite and a liar for being a filthy rich landlord and wine producer while pretending to be a struggling New Yorker. It would be on par with most of Trump’s “facts” or the pizza parlour pedophile ring story. Therefore it should work.
Same solution too: to avoid school pupils suffering from global warming, just train teachers into using global warming.
But you know very well their style is to pull the football away, so you don’t have to try and kick it. Or you can pretend out of pity. But in either case it doesn’t come out as a surprise. To carry the metaphor, the only question (and not uninteresting, in fact) is to which direction will the ball be pulled.
Not a bad idea.
Add some cameras on open channel and you get an entertainment program.
Add some incentive for people to cross and you get yourself a reality TV show.
Best of all, you can get a “celebrities” edition of the reality show where you get all the Kardashians to try and cross the zone.
And that day, even the people most opposed to the wall or the kill zone will say it wasn’t such a bad idea after all…
If you can count to 21 you can count to 23
He’s not just in the 1%, he’s in the 0.1% that need the lightning strike to take them by the hand, explain what light is, show them the light then help them calm down when they are hyperventilating because they saw the light.
There are Circle-Ks in Japan, in Canada, in UK… There are many in Hong Kong but it would seem, although the logo is basically the same, that it’s not the same company.
No they are not, they are Romance Languages. You can also call them Latin America Languages, but not just Latin Languages.
If the nazis had won the war there would be a Big Government, universal health care*, transportations operated by government owned companies, state controlled capitalism, lots of public servants and services… Therefore Trumpists and Republicans would call the nazis “leftard” or “commies”.
*universal health care for the approved citizen of the reich. Although one might argue that those sent to death camps have also their health taken care of by the government.
Well, I get your point and was not adressing Northam’s situation, so, in his case as you describe it, he is wrong to react like this. But I’ve lived quite a long time in Asia, mostly China and Japan, and the japanese I lived with didn’t get offended. They found it silly, that’s all. Same as the Chinese. The main reason was because they mostly felt this was the action of inferior races so it could be dismissed as childish.
But I reiterate. When people start to say “I am allowed and you are not”, it is the same principle as “my god is the true one”, “I am the chosen race”… and we’ve seen the results of that through history. It defines you by opposition to the others, builds a wall and only creates conflicts and distance. I don’t live in the USA, I believe communautarism is a bad thing because it doesn’t lead to inclusion but leads to every community wanting to be special, feeling they have special rights over the others. If people start with cultural appropriation, there is no reason to push it to the extreme on every side.
