    Magnificent...

    1) Trump gets the USA out of the WTO...
    2) Johnson gets the (Des)UK out of the EU...
    3) Trump gets guaranteed reelected because of his tweet about Robinette's pedophilia...
    4) Johnson gets reelected because he's a true “Aristotleic” Engrishman..., treating Anglos as friends and foreigners as animals...

    Intteresting times ahead for the Anglosphere...
    Chuckle..., chuckle...

    Very interesting times indeed!

    In a rare moment of lucidity on your part, we are almost in complete agreement!

    Trump Administration has made no secret about his frustration with the WTO, but he's not going to leave. His wild erratic rhetoric is instead being channeled into radically changing the organization's policy. 

    Trump is unilaterally (like a pirate) viciously strangling the organization — by stopping the appointment of new members. Merkel and Macron have been strongly fighting against the madman, but he still controls the largest economy.

    China — the second alternative and while their GDP grew substantially during this last quarter — all the G7 GDP numbers were seriously negative.

    Boris, tried to stray away Trump's strong arming about Huawei 5G, but was bitch slapped back during this pandemic. Boris needs Trump in leveraging against the Eurocrats in Brussels. (Yes, I'm aware that this is clear blackmail.)

    Boris the Aristotelian, is popular because he's defending the sovereignty of the UK. He also knows that Trump is planing a future full assault on China and the EU.

    Magnificent indeed!

    ¡Saludos!

    Yes, but I've improved the genetics of my children by marrying to a far superior class above mine.

    Again, we share a rare moment where we both agree!

    As you know, on the 18th we'll again here preform one of the most ridiculous national dances in the civilized world.

    Nothing like the sensuous beautiful Tango that originated in the whorehouses of Buenos Aires...

    Even we “wetback-beaner-brown-mestizo-mongrel-chicureanos” here in Chile admire the vast superior Argentine Tango...

    I was disguised in an impeccably tailored Naval officer's uniform — she was a beautiful enchanting Alianza Francesca mamouselle that shamelessly lied about her age. It was a scandal!

    Instinctual hormonal selection overcame sensible genetic reason and I certainly don't disagree with your obvious conclusion — which she ceaselessly and annoyingly reminds me.

    By the way, another one of those disreputable newspapers had an interesting article about the current pandemic situation declining in Sweden, while other countries are seeing an alarming resurgence. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/12684000/no-lockdown-sweden-records-lowest-covid/

    I consider herd immunity is a reasonable policy, but no one really knows.

    Stay well!

    It's always funny when Gauchito Drink reminds us about his string of failed relationships with women. I guess it never occurred to him that women look for a man, not a rumsponge.

    Oh, I enjoyed that soft cotton shirt for the first few months — but now I wear an irritating cilice...

    As I mentioned, marrying her — was like acquiring a Citroën Maserati SM high-performance coupé — with sensuous lines — excitingly enjoyable to ride — but highly temperamental and the constant maintenance has been a continuous nightmare...

    I'm still paying off the outrageous non-stop loan payments...

    But then again — she's definitely not a car...

    And when Madame DeFarge dons a silk negligee — I still find myself hopelessly bewitched...

    Such is life, stay well...

    My wife does often confuse me with a cake. I'm just getting used to talk her into dropping the spatula. Lock down side effects I presume.

    This lockdown has proven to be an ardious task for couples. God to see yours is surviving so far...

    Instead of a spatula, Madame DeFarge always has a sharp knife nearby...

    What is fascinating is that she's become far more docile during this pandemic — and only threatened to cut my throat only three times in the past 6 months! Sheer blissful matrimony... ...normally the threat has been far more frequent...

    That particular Citroën SM indeed lacks a large posterior — but possesses a prominent pair of headlamps.

    That beautiful blue blooded cabriolet that has the sensuous lines and marvelous suspension — but lacks exact the Maserati acceleration of the quixotic and temperamental coupé that still raises my blood pressure...

    Meanwhile (although I have no Russian heritage) — you can easily equate myself as the old Lada sedan that I once proudly drove. I should have been put into an automobile scrapyard crusher two decades ago — but I still keep on running.

    Changing the oil and a few motor adjustments seem to do the trick.

    My hydrophneumatic system operates like a classic Citroën — that now takes a while to rise after initiating the ignition.

    The selling of the Lada was encouraged my naval commanding officer, who was a partner in a Toyota dealership. (Say what you want — but he gave me great direction.)

    Prior to assuming the reposed leases of the Teutonic wonders we're now driving — we've had very pleasant experiences with Toyota and Subaru

    Although all close by — the triangle commute between Chicureo -Viña -Panquehue is a relatively short distance — but we still drive an inordinate number of kilometers annually. (We've been warned that used BMWs are a serious money pit, but the current arrangement is unashamedly opportunist.)

    You are completely correct that this highway does indeed have a finite destination — I just hope mine is not slamming into a concrete wall or off a precipitous cliff — but I rightfully fear sharp objects in the bumpy road...

    And before you ask, ma mariée once owned a Citroneta 2cv and it was more reliable than my Lada, but driving it just from Santiago to Viña was exhausting.

    We've just set up the fire pits for starting the fires about 5 in the morning...

    Meanwhile the night is quiet, the weather will be perfect and all chaos will breakout tomorrow

    Considering our Chilean assembled version had a “602 cc engine with an output of 33 hp” and when she started driving her first Toyota — there was no more debate.

    You can still see them on the roads here, because they are about as indestructible as cockroaches. I would put them in the same category as 1980s Toyota pickups — as they are both nearly indestructible.

    Her Toyota Camry was getting long in the tooth and she was convinced not only to change — but to negotiate a package deal (through her girlfriend) to exploit failed car-leasing contracts on exceptionally favorably conditions for the family.

    We were not asked, nor consulted — but given the polite unilateral directive that we would accede to accepting four vehicles.

    Frankly, my beat-up SUV Subaru was ready for liquidating at the end of the year — but after a wonderful meal and a couple of goblets of wine — it was announced I was changing (as well as two of our children) smoothly instructed — more than asked to accept the supreme directive of she who must be obeyed.

    2020 has been an unusual surrealist nightmare — which we both know is NOT a bad dream.
