So, i heard on NPR this morning that Argentina, which early on not only legalized same-sex marriage, but permitted "transgenders" to retroactively change their IDs and birth certificates without legal or medical certification, has now created a 1% hiring quota in public employment for "transgenders," waiving certain legal and educational requirements.

Why did  the plane crash....

It was a 1% quota trans pilot with no training.

Shrimp? Well, no less unkosher than bacon.

They already pick some people based on incompetence, like those investigating the AMIA bombing. The only competent one was murdered,

You know, with Argentina's connection to Iran, I hope they send a few trans to their embassy in Iran.

I thought fish was not edible for breakfast, don't think I could eat shrimp either.  Bacon, on the other hand, I am eating right now!  I do not have to follow a kosher diet.  Closest thing used to be "no meat on Friday", but I think that's even changed now.

Fish is pretty common breakfast food.  Lox, herring, kippers, smoked trout - used to have that a lot.  This morning I made Çılbır - poached eggs in spiced yogurt with pepper oil.

And whitefish. Had all that at the Brotherhood breakfasts at the shul I went to as a child.

And there was a lot of fish available at the breakfast at the Dan Intercontinental Tel Aviv when I was there on a business/vacation trip in 2000.

A few months later, the Dolphinarium nightclub across the street got blown up in a terrorist attack.

even my leftist Argentinian acquaintances and friends think the current government is completely freaking crazy.
