アメリカの進次郎 word salad




“When we talk about the children of the community, they are a children of the community.

“And we got to take this stuff seriously, as seriously as you are – because you have been forced to have to take it seriously,” 


このようなものはword saladというようで、FOXやSky Newsなどマードック系のTV局は嬉しそうに取り上げています。

Harris once said, 'It's time for us to do what we have been doing, and that time is every day'

2022 was another year filled with awkward and meandering quotes and soundbites from the Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris.

This year, Harris cemented her legacy as being the politician most likely to break out into an indecipherable "word salad" during one of her speeches, press conference appearances, or meetings with world leaders. 






Putin’s Desperate Hours
The Russian president is frantic and lashing out in defeat.
By Tom Nichols

Putin may be a dictator, but even dictators have to justify losses. The Russian president started his speech by going full Orwell, claiming that the West started the war and that Russia was obliged to take up arms to put a stop to it all. (He might as well have said, “Eurasia has always been at war with Oceania,” and he came close.) He also repeated his accusation that the U.S. and NATO “rapidly deployed their army bases and secret biological laboratories near the borders of our country,” but this section was omitted from the English text published on the official Kremlin website, perhaps because it’s a bonkers charge that has long been debunked. The line, however, doesn’t seem to have been ad-libbed; it’s in the Russian text posted on the Russian president’s official website.


Vladimir Putin delivered his Address to the Federal Assembly. The ceremony took place in Gostiny Dvor, Moscow.

Citizens of Russia,

This Presidential Address comes, as we all know, at a difficult, watershed period for our country. This is a time of radical, irreversible change in the entire world, of crucial historical events that will determine the future of our country and our people, a time when every one of us bears a colossal responsibility.

One year ago, to protect the people in our historical lands, to ensure the security of our country and to eliminate the threat coming from the neo-Nazi regime that had taken hold in Ukraine after the 2014 coup, it was decided to begin the special military operation. Step by step, carefully and consistently we will deal with the tasks we have at hand.

Since 2014, Donbass has been fighting for the right to live in their land and to speak their native tongue. It fought and never gave up amid the blockade, constant shelling and the Kiev regime’s overt hatred. It hoped and waited that Russia would come to help.

In the meantime, as you know well, we were doing everything in our power to solve this problem by peaceful means, and patiently conducted talks on a peaceful solution to this devastating conflict.




This appalling method of deception has been tried and tested many times before. They behaved just as shamelessly and duplicitously when destroying Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, and Syria. They will never be able to wash off this shame. The concepts of honour, trust, and decency are not for them.

Over the long centuries of colonialism, diktat and hegemony, they got used to being allowed everything, got used to spitting on the whole world. It turned out that they treat people living in their own countries with the same disdain, like a master. After all, they cynically deceived them too, tricked them with tall stories about the search for peace, about adherence to the UN Security Council resolutions on Donbass. Indeed, the Western elites have become a symbol of total, unprincipled lies.

We firmly defend our interests as well as our belief that in today’s world there should be no division into so-called civilised countries and all the rest and that there is a need for an honest partnership that rejects any exclusivity, especially an aggressive one.

Groundhog Day


引退を撤回することをpull a Tom Bradyと表現されるほどインパクトがあった出来事だったのですが、今度は本当の引退のようです。ただ昨年と同じでGroundhog Dayとして、来年も繰り返されるのではというキャッチが英語メディアでは使われていました。

But this time it's for good.

The Buccaneers quarterback made the announcement in a 53 second video that appeared to be shot on the beach, possibly Miami Beach. He owns a home in Miami. Brady, 45, is a seven-time Super Bowl champion and not just the greatest quarterback of all-time but arguably the great football player of all-time.


Groundhog Day is here, and once again, Tom Brady has retired from professional football. Like last year, the Bucs QB says he is done with football and wants to focus on the next chapter of his life. As we could expect, there have been copious amounts of messages for Tom wishing him the best and noting how they will miss him in the coming years.

It's not quite Groundhog Day — but yes, you've heard all this before. Quarterback Tom Brady is retiring from the NFL — for real this time, he said in a video posted to social media on Wednesday morning.

Thursday is Groundhog Day, as in the one with the shadows in Punxsutawney, but Wednesday was “Groundhog Day,” as in the day that kept repeating itself.

On Feb. 1, 2022, Tom Brady announced his retirement.

On Feb. 1, 2023, Tom Brady announced his retirement.

On Feb. 1, 2024 …?

Now, Brady said in his latest retirement video that he’s ending his illustrious National Football League career “for good.

同じことの繰り返しとGroundhog Dayがどう結びつくのか、ウィズダムとオックスフォードなどは載せてくれています。このブログでも取り上げたことのある映画です。

Groundhog Day
1 (in North America) February 2, when it is said that the groundhog comes out of its hole at the end of winter. If the sun shines and the groundhog sees its shadow, it is said that there will be another six weeks of winter.
In many US communities people watch for the appearance of a groundhog on Groundhog Day. The best known of these places is Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, where the groundhog is always called Phil.
