What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Unlikely Bedfellows

Sarah Palin’s attempt to gain the support of Julian Assange shows that conventional politics have been consigned to history

 

In a post Wednesday on her Facebook account, batty Sarah Palin did an about turn and apologised to Julian Assange – a man she’d described as “an anti-American operative with blood on his hands” in 2010.

 

In a missive to her followers, the dimmest politician on the planet stated the Wikileaks founder had “exposed the truth” about what Assange had described as “the Obama administration’s attempt to delegitimise Donald Trump”. She went on to claim the fugitive, who remains holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in Knightsbridge, had shared “important information that finally opened people’s eyes to Democrat candidates and operatives” and concluded: “This would not have been exposed were it not for Julian Assange”.

 

That Republican firebrand Mrs Palin said such a thing is yet another example of conventional politics being turned on its head. The election of Donald Trump and Brexit in Britain seemed bonkers but that this unhinged woman is seeking out the support of a man who is an evader of justice and a self-appointed crusader of vanity is something one simply could never have made up.

 

2017 looks set to be the year when the loopy people of the world unite. God help us all.

 

Sarah Palin’s Facebook post in full:

 

To Julian Assange: I apologize.

 

Please watch Sean Hannity’s interview with Julian Assange (Wikileaks).

 

Exposing the truth re: the Left having been oh-so-guilty of atrocious actions and attitudes of which they’ve falsely accused others. The media collusion that hid what many on the Left have been supporting is shocking. This important information that finally opened people’s eyes to democrat candidates and operatives would not have been exposed were it not for Julian Assange.

 

I apologize for condemning Assange when he published my infamous (and proven noncontroversial, relatively boring) emails years ago.

 

As I said at the time of being targeted and my subsequent condemnation, though, the line must be drawn before our troops or innocent lives deserving protection would be put at risk as a result of published emails.

 

Julian, I apologize.

 

Sarah Palin

 

P.S. If you get the chance, catch the movie “Snowden.” That movie and Hannity’s interview tonight are quite enlightening.

  1. Ms.Palin headed the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, responsible for overseeing the state’s oil and gas fields. She was the youngest person and first woman to be elected Governor of Alaska. She was the first Republican woman to be nominated for the vice presidency.

    No mean accomplishments.

    What, I wonder, does ‘Claire’ have in the way of her personal achievements to warrant her ‘insane’ comment on Sarah Palin?
