Finnish News takes on the US election. Please note that I don’t think this US election is a joke. Trump is close enough to a fascist demagogue, and the spectre of the million who have died as a result of the illegal Iraq War also hangs over both campaigns. This is funny but truly, this is not a joke.
Bill Gates, Steve Ballmer and the other very excited nerds at the Windows 95 launch.
Fitting because I was helping my mother with her work PC earlier and it was really was like going back in time.
Bill’s little hop.
I like the comments:
“Gates is flapping his hands like a seal.
Most of us Canadians, and certainly any Canadians who read this blog, are overjoyed to have thrown out the party of far-right, tar sands social conservatives who have benighted this country for so long. Goodbye to the xenophobic, misogynist, Islamphobic, climate-change-ignoring, environmentalist-hating, Koch brothers-friendly, medieval holdover known as Stephen Harper. How wonderful it was to hear his concession speech, which someone on Facebook described as “best speech by a robot” while someone else just commented “smarmy goblin.”
We threw them out despite the fact that the vast majority of the corporate newspapers in the country backed the Conservative Party of Canada, running unavoidable wraparound front page ads on every paper the weekend before the election and printing glowing editorial endorsements.
We have never had a sadder federal election. The incumbent Conservative Party has used a racist, race-baiting strategy we normally associate with other places. The racism that has been whipped up will take a very long time to dissolve. A full of the population, or nearly a third, have proven themselves to be idiots, racists or more likely both.
