bad news

i was making fun of the french when LePen passed the first stage of the last presidential elections, i was and still am laughing at the americans and their dumbass president, but now that Blocher (head of the right wing party (“UDC” in french), almost extremist in certain ideas) is in the “Bundesrat” i will shut my mouth. i’ve learned the lesson. from now on, i’ll start to use my right to vote (i’ve had it for 5 yrs, but never used it!).
