Odds and sods

It is very difficult to feel very sorry for this bloke, for no matter how you spin it, it’s wrong. If he was a kid having watched some film on TV you would sit him down and make him watch something like Schindler’s List just to knock that on the head. Anyhow, the novel Schindler’s Ark would probably blow his mind being a bit meaty for tiny minds.

Cholera in Haiti, anyone shocked by this. The only shock I feel is it’s taken so long. As reports I’m getting from Aid people are far from good. They describe something that is not a State, and never was, in the meaning anyone has of that term.

In the UK, well not all of it, England only, there will be a 40% drop in the subvention to the Universities, given for the teaching of undergrads. This is accompanied with a 200% hike in the Fees charged.

Today, is a bank-holiday. Which considering the economic krapola caused by those idiots is a bit of a laugh, a sarcastic one.

    That bloke is a nut-job. Unfortunately, the American voting public will probably forget what he did when the next bit of stupidity comes along. Then he'll be elected.

    But I'm not getting at the U.S. In this it would not matter from where he came for this is just wrong. And can you imagine the conversation over a few beers that came to the notion that it would be a good idea to dress in the uniform of murdering scum. Or the thought pattern the following day that allowed drunken concepts free rein.

    Haiti's been screwed up since Day One. It's what happens when people try to fight each other to get a place at the public trough.

    As for the reenactor/candidate, one wonders whether any of his aids might have mentioned that such photos could be problematic, especially in this political climate.

    What a jack wagon (check out this commercial for the best use of such terms as “jack wagon” and “mamby pamby land” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qiQI-zrPvQ). Seriously, I just don't get people. I'm with you, Vince, regardless of where this lad is from – it's just wrong.

    As for Schindler's Ark – I had no idea that's the book Schindler's List was based off of. Nice to learn something new!

    I feel such a great sadness for those in Haiti having to deal with such terrible conditions which lead to a large % of them getting Cholera. The flags should have been raised long ago on the issue, prior to it making it to Port-au-Prince.

    In regards to tuition, the US is seeing an approx. increase in tuitions by universities by 10+ % per year also. It's ridiculous, especially with the unemployment rates being so high here. Students are graduating with huge student loan debt and can't even find a job to pay the loans off. But a 200% hike is seriously out of control!

  5. Vince says:

    LOL Randall. One wonders about the political party that would endorse someone that is that idiotic. His opponents, all they need to do is show the lines of War Dead from one of the WWII beaches.

    Yes HulaBuns we have something similar to jerk wagon. Gobshite.

    And of course the flags should have been raised long ago. For Cholera is mostly a question of potable water. So why the heck was there not enough portable treatment plants. They have them on trucks these days.

    That 200% will still not bring them to Ivy League prices. This afternoon they spoke about £12,000 as the cap for tuition fees. But then you have to put living expenses on top. So, I suppose the difference isn't that much.

    Oh my! I hadn't heard anything about that guy before, but then I get disgusted with politics and only try to stay informed enough to vote the races that appear on my ballot. I can assure you, though…. I wouldn't forget about this come election time.

    A real shame about the sickness in Haiti.

    Thanks for the info!

    Our constitution gives him the right to free speech. Sadly, he chooses to dishonor the men who fought and died to give him that right by choosing to don that uniform.

  9. kathryn says:

    Unbelievable. I'm spitting and am temporarily at a loss for words….unbelievable jackass.

    And don't get me started on college tuitions…that line about a college grad making one million dollars more in his lifetime than a non-grad is sounding like less and less. I mean, a million? Over a lifetime??

  10. Vince says:

    Sorry Kelly, I don't generally view the smaller areas of politics. But this one is different.

    Kate, your welcome

    Jen, he was bonding with his son. A good thing really. But then where are those with Jewish names. OH yeah, under the ground outside ovens in the Polish province of Auschwitz.
    Call this what it is, Neo-Nazism.

    Yes Kathryn, unbelievable is it not. And from an American.

  11. I vote but outside of that I try to stay away from politics. Finding an honest and common-sense person in politics is harder than finding a Renoir at a small-town Texas flea market.

  12. Vince says:

    Kathleen; if you were to find a Renoir in a small town It's Texas you would find it.
