tabs like peas...sociopolitics+art.

when i 1st saw this i liked it, but is eat plenty vertical space and i had no valid reason to repost, other than my liking it. since these days i accept my inner archivist and choose to make it work for me by sometimes posting random things for my reference, i reposting "two cows", plus some other tabs been sitting, waiting...
TWO COWS ~{Matthias Varga}
SOCIALISM You have 2 cows. You give one to your neighbour.
COMMUNISM You have 2 cows. The State takes both and gives you some milk.
FASCISM You have 2 cows. The State takes both and sells you some milk.
NAZISM You have 2 cows. The State takes both and shoots you.
BUREAUCRATISM You have 2 cows. The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other, and then throws the milk away.
TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull. Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows. You sell them and retire on the income.
ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND (VENTURE) CAPITALISM You have two cows. You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows. The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company. The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States , leaving you with nine cows. No balance sheet provided with the release. The public then buys your bull.
SURREALISM You have two giraffes. The government requires you to take harmonica lessons.
AMERICAN CORPORATION You have two cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows. Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why the cow has dropped dead.
GREEK CORPORATION You have two cows. You borrow lots of euros to build barns, milking sheds, hay stores, feed sheds, dairies, cold stores, abattoir, cheese unit and packing sheds. You still only have two cows.
FRENCH CORPORATION You have two cows. You go on strike, organise a riot, and block the roads, because you want three cows.
JAPANESE CORPORATION You have two cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then create a clever cow cartoon image called a Cowkimona and market it worldwide.
ITALIAN CORPORATION You have two cows, but you don't know where they are. You decide to have lunch.
SWISS CORPORATION You have 5000 cows. None of them belong to you. You charge the owners for storing them.
CHINESE CORPORATION You have two cows. You have 300 people milking them. You claim that you have full employment, and high bovine productivity. You arrest the newsman who reported the real situation.
INDIAN CORPORATION You have two cows. You worship them.
BRITISH CORPORATION You have two cows. Both are mad.
IRAQI CORPORATION Everyone thinks you have lots of cows. You tell them that you have none. No-one believes you, so they bomb the ** out of you and invade your country. You still have no cows, but at least you are now a Democracy.
AUSTRALIAN CORPORATION You have two cows. Business seems pretty good. You close the office and go for a few beers to celebrate.
NEW ZEALAND CORPORATION You have two cows. The one on the left looks very attractive...
talking 'bout politics+corporations, sunity, as always, have bes' words about the situation in sweet t+t. and before we abandon politics, i fully admit i eh know anyting else about the dude, but i cyah help but like this apparently smart+funny canadian politician after reading his tweets...
no connection other than my interest, so no segue: this article delivered more real truth than expected (although i eh sure about use of the word "trained" in title) and i appreciated the honesty, especially as he had to know many would take it as making excuses, rather than an attempt to explain so we can move to suit...5ways modern men are trained to hate women.
i keep art linkage for last so i doh end on a downer: because wasa always digging up the road, potholes, reenvisioned; and because apparently german groceries mash up the dance and we all clearly need to shop there...
and who else mash up the dance? them dancer boys in mayaro the band's short-dhoti song video (which, if you know anyting about life in trini, also provides serious social commentary)

this is just audio and i eh no expert to critique how they beat, but i enjoy the music/arrangement enough to wanna be able to find it again: st.margaret's superstars, panorama2014 semis, medium band playing de fosto's in de minor, arranged by shenelle abraham 
and as that had no visual, and is carnival, take a lagniappe: me eh know if it real or set up and me eh care; enough of them look jokey enough to make me laugh, so right now these haunted house photos could share...
real words sooncome...walk good.
