Mandolin and glass of Pernod 1911
If I’m not mistaken Pernod is absinth; that could explain a thing or two…October 27, 2018 at 12:20 pm #43525Raúl Ilargi MeijerKeymaster
No, Pernod is anise. Like Ricard, ouzo. Absinth is van Gogh.October 27, 2018 at 12:47 pm #43526V. ArnoldParticipant

Ah, thanks for the clarification.
Actually, that makes sense. 🙂
Even if Picasso doesn’t…yet…
My parents live on Mykonos for 4 or 5 years; they brought back Ouzo; I liked it…October 27, 2018 at 4:27 pm #43527Dr. DParticipant
Ah Varoufakis, we hardly knew ye. So instead of creating a party that can actually vote and rule, they’re creating an Internationale Brotherhood of Progressives. Okay. Explains what Bernie’s been doing when people are begging him to come out and start a 3rd party or something. He is, but apparently one that won’t work to compete/replace the Democrats.
But that’s an aside. What was interesting was “the nationalists, the racists – like Trump, Bannon, [German Interior Minister Horst] Seehofer, Salvini — they are internationalists,”
I’m sorry, what? The prime populist candidate of “America First”, who daily berates Globalists and is in turn berated because he isn’t one, yet is in fact, a Globalist. …The kind of world-unifying, internationally-minded, border-destroying leader, that is both withdraw from PPT, Paris, and U.N. treaties that is putting up national trade barriers, and building a wall? That kind of open-border, free-trade Internationalist? Because I think you might have noticed he’s the OPPOSITE of that word, as in, “I don’t think that word mean what you think it means.”
And P.S., as much as every day I repeat that Fascists are Socialists — National Socialist Workers Party, or Mussolini was a labor organizer, the difference between fascists and socialists are, while they both want a total merger of corporations and state with overwhelming authoritarian state power crushing the people, fascists believe in their National power and heritage, while Socialists want the International communist revolution of ALL states. That is, by definition, fascists are not “Globalists” or “Internationalists” except in as far as they wish to take over the world. That is, literally the opposite, which is why they were street-fighting in Germany in the first place.
Please stop the madness and start using words according to their actual definitions when you are in a position of power and influence. Please. My mind is melting when everything is its own opposite, and a thing and its opposite are always both true. Oh, and when everyone nods and carries on as if the people and their publishers shouldn’t be fish-slapped to straighten their ways.
“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.”
“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master – – that is all.”
Is he saying “I just make s–t up to win arguments and make people obey, and don’t give a d–n about truth? ‘Cause that sounds real familiar.October 28, 2018 at 2:56 am #43528zerosumParticipant
You can only spend a given dollar once, and it’s been spent.
Time to tell all.
Who’s money got spent?
Who spent the money?
Who received the money?
