On June 30, President Obama signed into law the PROMESA bill, which will establish a federally appointed control board with sweeping powers to run Puerto Rico’s economy. While the legislation’s supporters say the bill will help the island cope with its debt crisis by allowing an orderly restructuring of its $72 billion in bond debt, critics say it is a reversion to old-style colonialism that removes democratic control from the people of Puerto Ri...

Political Revolution? Sorry #Bernie, a #politicalrevolution isn't going to happen from inside a Corporate Democrat #Neoliberal establishment.

A revolution comes from outside existing power structures (the DNC and RNC know this and don't want open debates). Sign the petition to tell the Corporate Controlled #DNC and #RNC to drop their opposition to #opendebates:

Executives looting a failing company. 
Yahoo Inc's chief executive and its board may have mishandled the compensation of a former chief operating officer who received $60 million in severance, a Delaware judge ruled, clearing the way for a shareholder investigation.

The never-ending hypocrisy of the United States. #taxhavenUSA #UShypocrisy #rothschild
Moving money out of the usual offshore secrecy havens and into the U.S. is a brisk new business.

American's Inverted Totalitarianism.

Yeah, it's a long video, over two hours. You probably shouldn't bother watching this. Go binge on Orange is the New Purple or Desperate Handmaids. Don't forget the Doritos.

2 Party politics is broken and corrupt and has been for quite some time. Jill Stein for President.

We should all attempt to be comfortable with our own rational minds, our capacity as logical beings. Along this path, feel at peace asking rational questions of official narratives.

This is what a badass looks like. We need more of this guy, immediately.

#BAMF for #BlackHistoryMonth  Now THIS is a cat I'd love to see a biopic about!

From Wikipedia: As a politician, Smalls authored state legislation providing for South Carolina to have the first free and compulsory public school system in the United States, and founded the Republican Party of South Carolina.

Meanwhile, in #Iowa:

"A victory for the #grassroots" Ted #Cruz

"A political #revolution" Bernie #Sanders

Are Americans really this ignorant? Do Americans really believe that electing a candidate from either one of the corrupt, corporate controlled #neoliberal parties amounts to a "grassroot" effort or a "revolution"? Yes, Americans (the 50% that show up to #vote and vote Dem or Rep) are ignorant enough to believe this.

Happy "voting".

Haahaa. Shmuck creator of #PlannedParenthood "hit" videos, #daviddaleiden , facing felony charges. Wonder what the Evangelical-shill congressfools who basked in moral outrage over these false videos are going to say?
The grand jury also cleared Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast of all wrongdoing.

Memes tend to annoy me, but this one really happens to resonate.

Writer of literary (satirical) fiction
Introduction

I'm a thirty-something currently holed-up in a fourth-floor walk-up in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. At university, I earned degrees in ridiculous, boring shit like finance, computer science and information systems. My real education came from wandering around the world. I am a writer of literary fiction with a heavy satirical bent. When not writing, I like to put the ping-pong beat-down on my Asian friends at the Sunset Park Rec Center.

Agnostic till the day I die and subsequently cross over into some other realm that provides clarification heretofore unprovided and/or unattainable.

The good folks over at Shilla really want you to feel welcomed when you enter their zone. In the 20 seconds it took the hostess to show us to our lunchtime seats, we were "welcomed" by four different people. The greetings set the tone for what was to be a nice meal. Apparently both my lunchtime companion and I were lacking originality and we both put in for a bul go gi box. At first, it seemed like it might be a bit pricey ($11? give or take), but, even for our little lunch feast, Shilla pulled out all the ban chan...something like nine little dishes of it: marinated tofu, kimchee, noodles, many random pickled things, etc.. all quite tasty and a starter. Our boxes came out and I was pleasantly surprised to see a massive pile of deliciously marinated beef. To compliment the beef, a portion of rice, an oyster on a half shell, a salad, a rice noodle dish and a bowl of porridge. More food than either of us could pack away, and, more importantly, everything was fresh and served very quickly. My only complaint is directed towards a heavy set bald man who arrived ten minutes into our meal. He sat behind us, and, in a fashion that presumes his dining partner was completely deaf, sang his own praises, carefully articulating all of the qualities which makes him among the most brilliant at his firm. In the most childish manner possible, I took to emulating his behaviors in an attempt to bring about some level of cognizance. Unfortunately, all attempts failed. Please understand, I don't hold the fine staff at Shilla responsible for this particular man's behavior, however, I would probably give an even more glowing review for this establishment if one of the wait staff would have belted this guy in the head with one of those big stone pots.

The tres leches cake here is really nice. I have a friend who lives out in Long Island, and, every time she visits she buys 6 pieces, goes home, eats them all in one sitting, usually pukes (gluttony, not a quality/cleanliness issue w/ Angel) and swears she will never do it again. She turns up at my place a couple weeks later and does the same thing again. I try not to gorge on them myself, but they really are quite tasty....creamy, milky, drippy moist. I keep saying I'm going to try other things there, but, I always keep falling for the tres leche. My little niece got the pink doughnut once. I gave it a try, and thought it tasted like crap...like a hamburger bun with pink granulated sugar on it. To be fair, I think the pink doughnut is really only meant to be consumed by three-year-olds concerned with color not taste.

About once a month my wife and I walk by Kow Loon, and, each time she gets a six pack of the red bean buns. I don't find them particularly delicious, but, I never been a big fan of red bean buns. When I ask my wife why she likes them, she tells me because the bean paste is nice and fresh and just subtly sweet. So, there you have it, I'm sure that is extremely helpful. I always get one of the $.95 sponge cakes. It's kind of like eating an unfrosted cupcake that is very light (no butter?) and just barely sweet. I think the real reason I like them is because they taste exactly like the ubiquitous sponge cake I bought everywhere in china. Plus, they go nicely with bubble tea and coffee. And this concludes what is most likely a useless review of a decent little Chinese bakery.
