ThumbnailOn Tuesday, Pelosi, either inadvertently or purposefully (more like it ’cause this lady is pretty smart) exposed one of the dumber and more pernicious rules of decorum in the American House of Representatives.

Pelosi gave a floor speech about Donald Trump’s infamous, racist comments about freshman Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley, before the House was set to vote on a resolution condemning Trump’s remarks.

Towards the end of the speech, Pelosi referred to Trump’s comments as “disgraceful and disgusting,” adding, “and these comments are racist.”

As mind numbingly stupid as this is, it appears that you cannot call the president a racist on the House floor, even if that president has done something racist.

Welcome to the United States, where it’s somehow considered more taboo to publicly describe a racist as a racist than actually saying something racist. And nevermind a racist rapist!

Regardless, great speech for the occasion. The masses should like that whole Jesus thing… and that “take it up with the parliamentarian, bitches” exit was great.

Side effect of that whole “rules” battle: That speech will now be read & reread & repeated & examined for a long time, so it gets an amplification.

And in the process, if that dippy rule gets changed, then we will have taken another babystep forward in civilisation.

Remember when the world respected your president?

Let’s keep the faith for better times ahead.

I haven’t blog about politics (one of my favourite subjects) in a while, specially the embarrassing circus that is the American politics. In part because I got fed up of anything Trump, in part because there’s more entertaining (and less toxic) subjects I focused on.

However it seems I’m no the only one who got fed up of the trashy Trumps…

She is not a holder of elected office. She has no business travelling with her father and sitting with him in photos of actual world leaders. And she has no intellect to interject herself into conversations like these with zero to say.

The French government released this, so I would call that allowing Ivanka to hang herself.

Here, an Indian diplomat spells out how Ivanka is like a dim-witted member of the Saudi royal family, an apt comparison, and where the U.S. is headed if the Americans can’t get her dementia-addled dad defeated in a year and a few months.

Intrusa is Spanish for intruder, and that’s what she is.

The New York Times reports:

As tens of thousands of demonstrators filled the rainy streets of Taipei on Friday, lawmakers in Taiwan voted to legalize same-sex marriage, a first for Asia. “We want to marry!” supporters outside the legislature chanted in approval of the measure, as they applauded and waved signs and rainbow banners.

“On May 17th, 2019 in #Taiwan, #LoveWon,” President Tsai Ing-wen tweeted after the vote. “We took a big step towards true equality, and made Taiwan a better country.”

The legislature faced a deadline imposed by Taiwan’s constitutional court, which in 2017 struck down the Civil Code’s definition of marriage as exclusively between a man and woman. The court gave the government two years to revise the law, or same-sex couples would automatically be allowed to have their marriages registered by the local authorities.

That’s some welcome and wonderful news in these dark Trumpian times.

USA Today reports:

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed a near-total abortion ban Wednesday, putting in place one of the nation’s most restrictive laws on the procedure and all but guaranteeing legal challenges. The governor had been quiet about her intentions after the Alabama Senate gave final legislative approval to the bill Tuesday night.

“To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God,” Ivey said in a statement issued on Wednesday afternoon, a statement that also noted the law may be “unenforceable” amid the likely filing of lawsuits against it.

Even God hates it when his name is used to justify nonsense.

Each day that I read news from America, I cannot be more grateful to be Canadian and live in a First World progressive country where women has the right and freedom to chose what’s best for her.

Canada is a secular country, so we don’t have this type of issues where politicians mix up religions and faith. They keep that at home and rule the country with COMMON SENSE!!!

On the other hand, Gov. Kay Ivey is the same person who said she would support Roy Moore because he was the republican candidate even though she said she believed the victims.

Ivey was willing to put a pedo in office just because he’s republican… The double standards of morals is nauseating.

If life is so precious give Americans healthcare, ban guns, etc.

But yeah they won’t! Life is not so precious after all.

Sorry for the lack of updates, blame my job… It’s truly exhausting.

Wednesday I was sleeping by 8 PM… I think is the first time in my life that I sleep so early. Gone are the days of insomnia, those when I use to go sleep at 2 or 3 AM and get up at 5 AM.

Anyway, I’ve never blogged so much about politics but those Americans give the world no rest with their jaw-dropping incoherence.

Few days ago Trump said he’s a “young vibrant man…” Yesterday the other EMBARRASSMENT (Barr) was grilled by the senate panel for LYING in order to protect his criminal boss (Trump).

There was ANOTHER  mass shooting.

And also Florida’s passed a bill ALLOWING teachers to carry GUNS in the classroom… Like… WTF is going on in that country???

Here’s Kamala Harris mopping the floor with Barr.

And also nailing him, senator Mazie Hirono.

Reuters reports:

Florida’s legislature on Wednesday passed a bill allowing teachers to carry guns in the classroom, expanding a program launched after the deadly high school shooting in Parkland with the aim of preventing another such massacre.

Florida’s House of Representatives voted 65 to 47 to pass the bill after hours of debate over two days in which the Republican majority thwarted Democratic efforts to amend, stall or kill the measure. Florida’s Senate approved it 22 to 17 last week.

Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is expected to sign the bill into law, enabling school districts wishing to take part in the voluntary Guardian program to arm those teachers who pass a 144-hour training course.

WHAT A FUCKING MESS!!

I give it a month before some teacher’s gun goes missing.

The United States is light years far behind Canada as a society.

That’s all I got to say.
