To my knowledge there's never been a Catalan separatist terrorist attack. They're hella organized, but there's no equivalent to the Basque terrorist group ETA, which was basically like the IRA. If there is one, they're extremely small and not doing anything.
Anyway, I blame both sides for what happened today.
Threatening military action against Venezuela was the deep cut of the album.
Even Fox is calling it a "white supremacist rally" by the way.
Wandered over to Fox's site, glad there's some Republicans calling Trump out. I might actually be going crazy if that wasn't happening. Not that it's going to solve all our issues here. Same thing happened during the campaign. But I find myself wanting to cling to pieces of reality when I find them.
Kim Il-sung is known to have referred to East Berlin as Margaritaville, actually.
@junea Im really not so sure about any of this. Maybe? I feel like the counter-scenario could critique this as a sort of romantic, Rand-ian take on the human soul.
Not totally sure what this means since I'm not really familiar with the whole Rand trip at all. But of course it's just a maybe, nobody has a clue what would happen if the Kim regime collapsed or just started to collapse. But the whole flood gates opening thing does happen and happen quickly in those scenarios. Arab Spring. Or look at Romania in 89 or 90, whenever Ceacescu fell out of nowhere (sorta). He was giving a speech on his balcony in Bucharest in front of a big crowd with Party banners like he'd done probably done hundreds of times. Then from the back of the crowd some unfriendly chanting started, then slowly picked up, then he's waving his hands trying to get it to stop before being hustled inside, then the country devolved into chaos in a matter of hours, and a few days later he and his wife are dead. But at the same time, there's plenty of differences between that government and North Korea. Just saying that in tightly controlled societies with dictatorships, there's inevitably going to be discontent brewing under the surface, and when a little bubbles up, it can turn into a flash flood situation really, really quick.
I'll be out of town in Phoenix or SF. That's fine, going by last year, settling down on Christmas night to watch the Wolves is a sweet thing. Liked it so much I bought the t-shirt. A LaVine shirt but whatever. A cool shirt.
