Mike (Green) is furious that in addition to plundering the planet, the rich have also plundered his eyes.

I will probably vote for him in the hopes that the £80k mayoral salary will allow him to buy new eyes.

My favorite vegetable fact is that before people decided Kale was a superfood, the world's largest purchaser of Kale was Pizza Hut. They didn't serve it on anything; used it to decorate their salad bars. It went from being a thing you only used to decorate other more important foods to being a superfood, like some sort of green, leafy disney princess, and now everybody is trying to dethrone it and apparently failing.

Somehow Kale ended up with a Shakespearean narrative arc and nobody noticed.

Some thoughts on the anti-immigrant sentiment and ethno-nationalist protests in Ireland. I live in the Dublin 6 area and there are at least three migrant accommodation centres within a 1km radius of my house, with another large one planned to open shortly.

The ethno-nationalists have been trying to stir up anti-immigrant sentiment locally. The response from the local community has been to set up a D6 For All group, a non-politically aligned group of local activists and community leaders 1/4

The bar the media seems to give him
is so low, we don't even hear HIS DAMAGED SPEECH anymore.

"Trump …spiraling into "phonemic paraphasias" during his rally speeches, which is "substitution of non-words for words that sound similar—are not normally seen until a patient enters the moderate to severe stages of Alzheimer’s."

"Some examples of Trump’s non-words: Beneficiaries becomes 'benefishes.' Renovations become 'renoversh.'
Pivotal became 'pivobal.' Obama became 'obamna.'
Missiles became 'mishiz.' Christmas became 'Crissus.'
Bipartisan became 'bipars.'
This is a fundamental breakdown in the ability to use language."
