...from this capricious clown of a "president".
He promised to rid the Philippines of corruption, but corruption is still rampant in every government department, and the police are out of control, arresting without cause and holding people arbitrarily.
He promised to help the people, but the poor remain poor.
One thing he promised and DID deliver on was to shut down the largest TV/media group in the Philippines because they criticised him. As a result 11,000 people are losing their jobs and the nation is starved of quality news reporting.
The Philippines needs another people's revolution.
My code is so full of (relevant and descriptive) blacklist, whitelist, master, slave, kill, abort, etc etc, if the newspeak nazis got hold of it I'd be in the gulag.
Needless to say this state of affairs will continue because I'm writing code and not describing people, and I can tell the difference between the two.
I can't see this working, considering:
1. Most infrastructure projects and all government departments are, more than ever, hopelessly mired in corruption.
2. We are ruled by a de-facto dictator who didn't blink before shutting down the country's No.1 media organisation because it criticised him.
I'm a bit sick of virtue-signalling newspeak wankery.
Will my MasterCard be cancelled?
Will all car slave cylinders be removed?
Is my Masters degree now invalid?
Can I still order black coffee (or white coffee for that matter)?
Will master craftsmen (and women) be out of a job?
Will I be punished if I call a power cut a blackout?
Can department stores still sell white goods?
Do I have to remove the master and slave disks from my computer?
Will Grace Jones stop receiving royalties for "Slave to the Rhythm"?
And what about the Bryan Ferry classic "Slave to Love"?
Will James Spader have to remove The Blacklist from his CV?
Will Disney have to delete the master (sic) tapes of Snow White?
And we'd better expunge Star Wars and its Jedi Masters from history.
1984 was supposed to be fiction, not an instruction manual.
About 14 years ago when I decided on the name for my business I thought about using .co.uk, then figured, why associate myself with only 1 country, and make people type extra characters in the process? So I went the .com route thankfully. Renewals are still cheap as chips and I don't have to deal with Nominet. Double win.
"For everyone's safety, our restaurant team were checking that mobility scooters were permitted in the Drive Thru lane and, due to its road-going nature, in this case it was."
Safety? Huh? What, did you think it was going to explode? It's an electric scooter for heaven's sake. It's a Nissan Leaf with less bodywork.
It seems all the stories about brain cells being outlawed at McDonalds recruitment drives are true.
I'm not an engineer or an accountant or anything else that might construe an expert position, buuuuut..........
Do Boeing honestly believe that *anyone* will allow themselves to be booked onto a flight on one of these things, ever?
Icon: only one relating to flight.
