I shit you not! From Yemen!
Are there even 88 computers in Yemen? Or did the guy with the computer view my blog 88 times?
And I don't know shit about Yemen. Other than it's one of the poorest places on earth, but nevertheless one where lots of folks have ample money for guns and bullets. Long live the second amendment, I guess.
I also know that they've been having the crap bombed out of them by the Saudis. The same Saudis who buy many billions worth of guns and bullets and missiles and bombs and fighter planes and all that shit from the US and the UK.
Rumour has it that both the US and the UK have sales reps on the ground in Yemen to assist in the field trials of all those beautiful weapons systems they've been selling the Saudis.
But that's just the way of the world, is it not?
Anyway, here's hoping Buddy over there with the computer enjoyed what he read today.
Meanwhile, things are moving right along in the cabinet-building process for the president-elect. Seems he found a guy nick-named "Mad Dog" for Secretary of Defense.
I don't know anything about the guy, so maybe it's one of those ironic nick-names. You know, like when the smallest kid in your grade nine class got the nick-name "Big Jim."
Time will tell... although I suspect that what it's going to tell us isn't something we necessarily want to hear.
Like, "it's too late..."
Hard to know what the president-elect has up his sleeve for his next headline-grabber, but it's kinda fun speculating about it, wouldn't you agree?
I mean, it could literally be anything.
A dozen more cabinet posts filled with guys nick-named "Mad Dog?"
Gotta admit I've oodles of empathy for the folks who think the wrong person won. I mean it's gotta suck watching this shit-show unfold. The only thing I don't get is how those folks imagined anything would be better if the fake progressive had crashed through that glass ceiling.
After all, that's who the script-writers had up next. Yup, the first black president had his run, and the first female president was on deck.
You know what happened then...
What happens next?
And here's to you, Yemen guy; thanks for reading! Keep your head down and your spirits up!
I'm raising a pint to you right now!
