Now him, his sons, and potentially my cousin all have Covid

Uribe was instrumental in making Colombia a safer place by dramatically reducing guerrilla presence, especially near cities. Remember how in the 90s all you'd hear about was how Colombia was the kidnapping capital of the world? That more or less went away after Uribe took office. Of course, the way he got there was by slaughtering hundreds of thousands of people, including thousands of innocent civilians, by instituting quotas for law enforcement (the "false positives" scandal). He was as much a president as he was a mob boss, a truly despicable human being with very little regard for human life or due process. He is deeply corrupt and tied up in all kinds of shady shit. But the truth of the matter is that he marked a turning point of what it meant to live in Colombia, which is why so many people (Boomers and older Gen Xers especially) still idolize him, despite the mountains of evidence against him. He still holds a tremendous amount of influence

No, I only met him twice, we didn't really talk. His son married my cousin in 2012 when I was already living in Argentina, and that's when he started hanging out with my family a lot

Per a Russian I worked with, Belarus should never have left Russia. Probably considered more Russia proper than Crimea.

Good luck Belarus. I hope the autocrat that ends up ruling you is kind and just. Go people power! *chortle*

The bbc covering a sinking dinghy full of refugees in the English Channel rather than yknow.. helping them.
This is their news today rather than them having the highest death rate in Europe and an oncoming Brexit catastrophe. The narrative is already becoming the asylum seekers are responsible for corona deaths.
Britain is officially And completely gone down the toilet.

It’s really 2.5+2.5=5 but when someone is determined to hate the ‘white supremist patriarchy’ they can find it anywhere and rational thought is not required.
