    So – here's some great news from the United States of Fascism:

    I've said since high school – why does the U.S. have overseas bases? CLOSE THEM.

    Meanwhile, a bit of relieving news from Europe:

    Obvious case of cronyism CRUSHED by reason and economic sense! I'm so glad someone revived some sanity in one of the more nutty regions of the world.

    Here's to artisan olive oil and shutting down military bases!

    Yes Tiffany common sense occasionally prevails as it has with the olive oil mostly because it was sold as a food safety issue when in the real world nobody has ever heard of anybody getting sick from olive oil.

    But the nannies are still in the ascendant sigh
