---Happy Birthday, Mom!
---While Disney/ABC goatses the truth about 9/11, the number of dead in the Iraq War has now surpassed the number of dead on that fateful day. Both groups were helpless victims, one the innocent target of a fanatical regime built on lies and a pig-headed, scurrilous disregard for reality and truth and the other of Al-Qaeda.
---All of a sudden, like watching paint dry, almost all the pundits We are cursed with are now claiming that the sales taxes (yes, taxES) will harm the local economy.
Get out! Really? You figured that out all by yourself, or did a nearby patch of dog vomit give you the answer?
According to a friend of mine--an economist and political pundit who obviously has a brain--Puerto Rico is the only country asking--okay, "asking"--to increase taxes.
And no, My friend is definitely not a patch of dog vomit. But We're not ranking much higher on the "government intelligence" scale than Fido's last upchuck.
---Yesterday, I accidentally walked into a press conference featuring governor Aníbal "My Brain Is On Permanent Vacation" Acevedo. I glanced around to see who was or wasn't there (as if I knew what presence or absence meant at this non-event) and walked out. But not before I heard the following brief exchange:
"Is the governor reading (his presentation)?"
Shrug. "It's all the same."
Press people? Nah. Two of his security guards.
They couldn't pay Me enough to do that job...the security part, I mean. I do the cynical/sarcastic part for nothing.
---Here's the scary part: If the elections were held today, "My Brain Is On Permanent Vacation" would win. Not only because his opposition--lackwits all--are as organized as random idiocy, but because Our voters can also be described as having brains on permanent vacation. Said it before, saying it again: We are going to re-elect 90% of The Fools and that's going to leave Us with a taste in Our mouths like that of smoking a mojón in Purgatory.
The Jenius Has Spoken.
