CNN Business ^ | 12/11/2019 | Kerry Flynn

Posted on 12/11/2019 5:23:11 AM PST by carriage_hill

Time magazine has chosen Greta Thunberg, a Swedish climate crisis activist, as person of the year.

Each year, the magazine features the most influential person, group, movement or idea of the previous 12 months. Last year, it was "The Guardians," a group of journalists who have been targeted or assaulted for their work. In 2017, it was "The Silence Breakers," the group of people who came forward to report sexual misconduct. Past Persons of the Year include Adolf Hitler, Ayatollah Khomeini and Joseph Stalin.

I remember when it was “man of the year” then “person of the year.” Now it’s always predictable and it’s always politically correct. TIME spent their equity in this gimmick a long time ago. Now, Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit issue carries more significance than this rag.

“INSANE, MAKE BELIEVE, FANTASIES!’ If they’re (Time) not all already on weed and / or dope, no matter...their current highs can never be surpassed by the obvious stupidity in making such a choice! Desperate! Embarrassing! Educated Adults? Paid? PT or FT?

The quote in your picture, for some, is truly a gift. I know several people who have Aspergers, who are kind, considerate, smart, intelligent people. To them, Aspergers is not a disease.

However for the Swedish Meatball, it may very well be.

What do you expect from a magazine that chose Adolf Hitler (1938), Joseph Stalin (1939 and 1942), Nikita Khrushchev (1957) and Ayatollah Khomeini (1979)as their MAN OF THE YEAR in the past.

And Time will be sending corporate jets to wherever she is to fly the family in for an awards ceremony. Losers, every one of them.

Does anyone even read Time magazine anymore? Who cares who that magazine deems the person of the year to be.

I have an autistic niece *and* nephew. They both have what's called Asperger's Syndrome...which is a milder form of autism,what's sometimes called "high functioning" autism.

They're both as smart as all get out. One of them has been studied by Harvard Medical School (including brain scans,blood tests,etc). But as smart as they are they're both utterly clueless regarding what this complex world of ours is all about.

I've read that this Swedish girl also has Asperger's Syndrome.And she,too,doesn't have the first bloody clue!

In some parts of Europe that’s already illegal.
