If you ask a straight question, you expect a straight answer

Not in the mood for music. Below are a few screenshots grabbed some minutes ago, plus I’ll throw in two pictures from the iPad. No particular order:

Two initial comments

1. Did you notice no US flags at that Demrat debate?

2. The screenshot about that Jewish man or Israeli or whatever – that’s a whole other issue concerning the ancient split in Jewry, with one half clearly pursuing evil policies.

Expanded comment on the issues

We’re being treated as mushrooms. For those who don’t know that one, it means kept in the dark and fed BS.

And I don’t know one person who likes that, especially when it comes from our servants.

On this side of the pond, the issue is Johnson.  As you can see from his meeting with Juncker and Juncker’s subsequent new bravado in insulting Britain, Boris is not straight.

He was asked a straight question – are you or are you not going all out for a No Deal?  It’s the obvious question within this situation, you see it in the OoL header.

Yes … or no?

But he refuses to answer it, causing no end of speculation across all parties, in the media and up and down the country at street level.

It’s not unlike asking a straight question and being told ‘don’t be weird’.  It does not answer the question.

And I’m sick of it.

Farage, for all his faults, has every right to ask for a straight answer, he is not getting that straight answer, Hartlepool is just one small example of the savage response from the country.

Do you know how many times I’ve read readers’ comments that they thought something good was happening with a Brexit agreement between parties but Johnson refused to be straight.  And they’ve simply decided to hell with Johnson and all Tories.

Very similar situation in the States – That Tucker and Matt conversation is a good example – one side is simply not being straight.

A personal angle

Whilst I’m just as frustrated as you about the lack of straightness in behaviour of these people, I’m also very tired from my building project – today was a particularly physical time in the yard but rewarding too. It’s great for health but it does exacerbate overall weariness and I’m just sick to death of putting up with the same old obfuscation by pollies each and everyday – you ask something once, you expect an answer.

Therefore I’m cutting the political posts right back for a few days, not forever of course, but just for a few days. Call it a demi-hiatus.  So don’t worry if you see no posts, it’s just me snoring.

    The reason that politicians, including members of congress, and the current Secretary of Energy, formerly governor of Texas, can make so much money is that they used to be allowed to do insider trading. In Texas, the former governor make a hundred million or so in land deals involving legislation which he signed.

      And Pelosi? Maxine Waters? Schumer?
