Hardly news, but we couldn’t help but laugh when we saw the failing dumpster fire that is the New York Times characterize Mexico’s rush to agree to terms the moment tariffs were about to hit their avocado exports this way (no link because fuck ’em, that’s why):

Having threatened Mexico with an escalating series of tariffs — starting at 5 percent and growing to 25 percent — the president faced enormous criticism from global leaders, business executives, Republican and Democratic lawmakers, and members of his own staff that he risked disrupting a critical marketplace.

After nine days of uncertainty, Mr. Trump backed down and accepted Mexico’s promises.

We have to hand it to them: The old Pravda, Izvestia and Völkischer Beobachter have nothing on the New York Times.

None of those three would have ever dared be that brazen in their lies.

I’m waiting for the lawsuit and the massive judgement against the Slimes and the Compost. They lie so much that eventually someone is going to get them.

As it happened last week to Oberlin College. 🙂

First Law of Holes (or Assholes): Stop digging!

In this case they have a backhoe and seem to be revving it up. I do hope the punitive damages are epic. Sad for the students, but then maybe they will go somewhere where they are educated, not indoctrinated. Logic, Reason, History? Watbedatmon!

They were nailed. Further postings at legal insurrection say they were hit with the max allowed by law. Of course they’re appealing…
