In January we had the immortal quote from our Outraged Reader: “NATIONALIZE THE BASTARD BANKS!’ Of course this was ignored by grown ups with suits in the hope that everyone would forget about the whole thing and, in large part, everyone did.
April was indeed the cruellest month and The Definitive Indefinite Article took to heart the advices of Ludvig Wittgenstein: “Whereof we cannot speak reasonably, we must pass over in silence.” Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, 7
The Definitive Indefinite Article is grieved to note the massive layoffs that have occurred in Irish politics.
The Observant Reader: What the fuck are you talking about? You just posted the video of Deputy Paul Gogarty shouting “Fuck you!” at Deputy Emmet Stagg in the Oireachtas. Just have a look at it. What has that to do with layoffs? You’re missing the point. I now apologise for my use of improper language but really you are missing the fucking point completely. Look at the video!

Or so the American Center for Disease Control seems to think. But it’s OK. They are only planning go make it mandatory for little boys.

December 6th is the Day of the Constitution in Spain. December 8th is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. For anyone who wonders what a fascist state looks like or can’t even begin to imagine have a look here. This is what the confluence of nationalism, business interests and the god squad arrayed against working people looks like. Watch out for tell-tale signs in your world! ¡Felíz día de la constitución!
Here’s a thought experiment from our Money Over Matter Department.

Now, what if the cellular telephone people had a memo somewhere informing them that the radiation generated by all those smart and not so smart phones was causing brain and jaw cancer or leukemia or something awful like that.
