      Those of us who live abroad are fortunate to have the option of turning our backs on US politics. I don’t know if I’ll even bother voting this November, assuming there’s even an election. My absurd dream is that Bernie’s supporters will continue to vote while JB’s smugly stay home for the remainder of the primaries, confident in their belief that he’s the chosen one. (Well, the other chosen one.) As a result, Bernie will actually gain more delegates than JB, and then…. Well, then I wake up, and I realize that even if such a thing happened, the democrats and their owners will figure out a more permanent way to silence Bernie. So at this point, the only silver lining I see is that Bernie gets to retire and live out the remainder of his years in relative peace. But the vast majority of US citizens? Well, they’re fucked.

      Trivia! Pictures!

      Politics? I think I’ll see if I can avoid that topic for a while. 6 years might be enough . . .

      see you in the next election if there is one.

      Bernie figured he could do more good ALIVE,
      than dead in a small plane "accident".
      I think he's right.

      Don't you?
