Rancid Fudge

I don’t know about Singapore, but in the rest of the countries in the top 8 those “immigrants” are slave labor with zero rights and no hope of citizenship ever.

Why is it so hard to make whatever point this individual is trying to make without fudging the numbers and emptying words of all meaning?

Grateful

Canada no longer requires the infamous app to enter the country. It feels so strange to be able to enter just with your passport. One feels almost like an actual citizen. It’s very refreshing.

Tonight, I’m grateful for Canadian truckers who made this possible. And I’m even more grateful for Americans being Americans and never letting things get to that point in the US.

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s impossible to find a turkey in Canada, so we had beef. It was really great beef, though.

I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving! Or a great Thursday, if you are overseas.

On a funny note, Klara asked me who married into the family, me or her Dad. Since N hasn’t been able to demonstrate any family, the answer is obvious.

Poor guy, he’d be completely alone in the world, and it’s not like he did anything to make it this way.

Why the West Rules

Usually, at the World Cup I root for any or all Latin American teams. But now I’m rooting against them. They aren’t supportive of Ukraine and are acting all pouty and unnecessary.

We are seeing the answer to the question of “why West rules” right before our eyes. Nobody else takes the initiative. Nobody else is proactive. China, India, Latin America, the Middle East – they have no ideas, they don’t attempt to take the leadership role. Then they’ll moan about colonialism but it’s obvious to everybody that their subjected status is of their own choosing.

Inexcusable Existence

Another lovely thing in Julian Barnes’ novel Elizabeth Finch is the constant repetition of how bad men are. There’s no explanation of what’s so bad about them. They are just bad, stupid, unevolved, inferior.

The author of the book is a pale male, and he clearly thinks he needs to excuse his existence in major ways.
