Naughty Naughty Queen Elisabeth

 No more martinis for Her Majesty

 

The monarch is rarely seen drinking in public but according to palace sources, just like her son Prince Charles, her alcoholic beverage of choice is often a dry martini.

The 95-year year-old is also believed to enjoy a glass of sweet wine with dinner, while her late cousin Margaret Rhodes once reported she was known to drink a glass of champagne before bed.

'The alcohol has gone, her doctors want to make sure she is as fit and healthy as possible,' a second source was quoted as saying by the magazine.

A Happening In Italy?

 Big if true:

Dock workers could be going "indefinitely" on strike to protest covid passport mandates. 

Just for the reference, the importance of Trieste as a port:

Vampires Among Us

Are we sacrificing our young so that our elderly could feel safer?

This is straight out vampirism...

But then, what else can be expected from a society which defends offering its unborn for personal convenience?

Michaelmas

 Today is Old Michaelmas Day, so it's a reason to celebrate!

The weather is still quite nice, though it's raining now and then, but it does really feel like autumn now.

What's Going On?

 The gasoline price recently rose above 2 euro per liter, it had never been so high before. Prices of consumer goods are rising, too. I've heard stories of shortages in other countries, like the USA.

What's going on in the world???

Corona And Mental Health

 I had a dream tonight. Or, rather a nightmare. In my dream, I wanted some love from my husband and he told me, he told me that the government made a new rule saying that you first must fill in the form and submit it to the public health official, to prevent corona infections. 

I looked at the form and it had 3 pages, the 1st page demanding all your passport information. I said, it was ridiculous, surely it wasn't the government business and what about our right to privacy? But he still insisted on filling it in.

Then I woke up. My husband was just leaving for work and he laughed when I told him. He was against this whole nonsense from the very beginning. I know it all sounds far-fetched and yet, after all we've been through and considering apartheid passports we have now, who knows what the next step will be?

And while all this is being done supposedly to save the elderly, has any "health official" asked himself what is the effect of all this horror propaganda on the old folks' minds? I know many who have locked themselves in their homes from the very beginning.

 They are vaccinated and still afraid, because don't you know, you still can get it? Will it ever be over for them? Someone told me, they will only go out when corona disappears from the whole world. Which basically means never, because the virus is endemic now. 

And, of course, we all know that isolation at this age can lead to dementia rather quickly. how many of those who were balancing on the edge before were pushed over it? And will anyone take responsibility for what was done to these people?

 For any person who is in the same situation  and by any chance reading it, snap out of it now, while it's not too late. Stop feeling yourself a victim.  Don't shut yourself off from friends and family, you need their support. We are all going to die one day, a proverb says that a brave man dies once while a coward dies every day. 

Don't spend the rest of your life in fear, it's not worth it.

Yes, You Can Live On One Income!

 This is a post which I have been planning to write for more than a year, actually right before the whole corona stuff started last spring.

As we all know, the reason many married women work is to pay the mortgage, especially with the modern real estate prices. However, as I have said so many times already, while a big house is certainly a bonus, you don't always need it. And lo and behold, in 2020 IKEA made a catalogue featuring 3 families living in small spaces.

Now I'm not saying that all these were 1 income families (though the folks with many kids probably are), in fact, I don't know anything about them at all, however, this IKEA promo gives you an idea of how you can manage.

Family number one, 3 grown-ups (parents +granny) and 2 kids:


I'm afraid the quality of the pictures isn't great, but if you look closely, you see that the youngest child sleeps together with his parents in the master bedroom:


 

 while the little girl and her Grandma share a sofa bed:


The next family have 5 kids, with at least 1 teenager:

The living room becomes the master bedroom at night:


Three eldest children sleep in one room (the one on the right below), with the oldest sister sleeping in one corner behind a curtain:

 


 and a sister and a brother  sharing a bunk bed 

The two youngest ones share the room with 2 beds behind each other:

 


The third family have the smallest accommodation of all, a house on the ground floor with a tiny back garden:

It has 2 rooms, a living room and a bedroom. The living room also functions as a guestroom for the grandparents as it also has a sofa bed:

The son shares the bedroom with his parents (a small bed in the corner on the floor plan):


 

Have you noticed anything special about these families? Being of minority origins they apparently don't think they are entitled to a castle...

P.S. I couldn't find any copyright statement and anyway, the catalogue was only valid till 31 July 2020.

Erasing Women

 Flu And Pregnancy:

Influenza (flu) is more likely to cause severe illness in pregnant people than in people of reproductive age who are not pregnant...

 Flu also may be harmful for a pregnant person’s developing baby...

...the pregnant parent passes antibodies on to the developing baby during pregnancy...

Seriously, WTF??? Is this an example of "science" which we hear so much about? Like biology and reproduction of mammals, that sort of thing?

Note the source of it, and then they are surprised that people aren't taking them seriously on other topics. 

It's just a step above bodies with v8gines, I guess (which could be a female dog or cat, btw, since they also have it), because it at least acknowledges personhood.

I have a message for these "medical professionals", how about you all f888 off and leave WOMEN alone, you disgusting freaks???

Hunting And Outdoor Fair

 As a new vegetarian (technically a pescatarian) again, I thoroughly enjoyed Hunting And Outdoor Fair which we attended on our way home from our mini-vacation. After nearly 2 years without any sort of fun events, now that 1.5m is officially abolished, it felt like the good old times again. 

Live music, drinking a cup of tea/coffee on a terrace, and lots of people everywhere. They didn't only send weapons, of course, but all sorts of things, like this:



There was a BBQ competition using fresh meat, shooting clay pigeons, and also bow and arrow, stuff for dogs, clothes and even Christmasy stuff. (Poor folks missed all these Christmas markets last year!)

Made with a chainsaw:)


One of these rifles, I'm told, costs 9 000 euros!

It was all close to this nice village:


The weather was great, too, but now it's finally autumn...

Australian Police Strike Again

 I first saw this on Twitter where somebody mentioned this guy and his YouTube channel. Honestly, it is shocking. Just imagine if it happened somewhere in White Russia or Iran, the newspapers would talk about it for days, demanding interference. But if it happens in an enlightened Western democracy, then it should be fine, amirite???

Update On Our Situation

 After 2 days of protesting and an urgent Parliamentary debate, the rule has been changed so that apparently, one will still be able to sit on a terrace with a cup of tea or dinner without a code.

There were riots in The Hague and even a demo in our town, of the people who call themselves "resistance".

Common sense won! Proud of my country right now. We still have democracy left, unlike some of our neighbours, when they protest week after week and nothing changes.

Of course, it's not the end, and vigilance is needed to protect our rights in future. Medical decisions are a private matter and should never be the grounds of discrimination. Talk to your doctor and do what's right for you, don't judge others if they choose differently, and that goes for both sides of this debate. 

P.S. I should add that yes, it's bad enough that so-called corona pass was installed at all, but it's the 1st time they announced a rule and then had to change it so quickly, even before it became official, and it only happened because of massive discontent. So it's a victory, however small!

The Day Freedom Died

 So it's official now, since 25th of September my country will start segregating people according to their vaccination/test status. Those deemed unclean won't be able so much as to drink a cup of tea outside on a terrace in fresh air. And, btw, the vaccination book you have won't suffice, you'll need a QR code and your ID to be able to visit a bar or a restaurant, which (the code) will be scanned and nobody is sure where this info will go.

That's only the beginning, since our provisional government is seeking to change the law to force vaccine mandates on the workforce. Of course, any form of discrimination is already expressly forbidden  by the Constitution but no sacrifice is too great to fight the virus so the Constitution goes out of the window.

Some politicians and parties call to civil disobedience. And I heard that based Hungary is already on their 4th shot. Here we are currently only distributing the 3d one among vulnerable people as of yet , according to the official news. I have no words. That is, I do, but they are not fit for a public blog...

The Law Of Unintended Consequences

 strikes yet again:

A hospital in upstate New York has been forced to 'pause' the delivery of babies starting Sept. 24 after a flood of maternity workers resigned over Covid-19 vaccine mandates.

 I wonder what do these nurses know what we don't...

Prayer Works

 My cat is back, PTL and thank you everyone who prayed!

The poor thing was sitting on the roof around the corner all the time, where we couldn't see her. I was leafleting around and luckily, an old lady saw her and asked her son to telephone us.

We had to go on the roof through a window to get her as she wouldn't come to us, she was so scared. We are now planning to buy a GPS tag...

We were just on the way to church, btw, when it happened, what a coincidence!

Rethinking Swimming Pools

 and hot tubs. Apparently, you can get all sorts of infection there, and that if that is true about commercial, chlorinated pools just think what you can get from those back yard inflatable ones:

Swimming pool diseases

Official info is you can't catch an std such as HPV in a swimming pool or hot tub, but wait:

...the identification of HPV as an extremely stable virus as well as its ability to be resistant to common disinfectants suggests that this virus may be transmitted via contaminated fomites and surfaces, and through nosocomial transmission (Meyers et al., 2014;Ryndock & Meyers, 2014). Recently, the possibility of waterborne transmission has been raised (Fratini et al., 2013;Reynolds, 2012), due to the fact that HPVs are excreted both in the urine and in the feces. And indeed, HPV has recently been detected both in sewage and in sewage sludge (Bibby & Peccia, 2013;Cantalupo et al., 2011;La Rosa et al., 2013;Symonds, 2008). Consequently, these viruses may reach waters receiving sewage discharge. Although waterborne transmission has never been demonstrated, HPV DNA has recently been detected in different water environments, as discussed in the following sections...

...A variety of viruses may be discharged in pool waters by infected individuals or asymptomatic carriers. The occurrence of HPV in swimming pool waters has recently been studied in Italy (La Rosa et al., 2015). Polyomavirus, enteric viruses (adenovirus, norovirus and enterovirus), and bacteriological parameters (fecal indicator bacteria, heterotrophic plate count, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus) were also examined. Human papillomaviruses were identified in 7/14 (50%) samples. These belonged to five known types of the beta1 (HPV8, 12, 25) and beta2 (HPV23 and 120) genera. The study also found two putative new HPV genotypes. None of the enteric viruses tested were detected in the analyzed samples, and pool waters met the microbiological requirements defined by the national code. The implications on human health arising from the presence of HPV DNA in pool waters remain difficult to interpret.

Once again, "science" contradicts itself. So what are we to do? Use your common sense! As for myself, I prefer swimming in natural waters anyway.

Mission Accomplished!

 Project finished. It took me a couple of years to knit this cardi, by some reason, but I'm quite content with the results, besides the fact that the sleeves could be a bit shorter. It's warm, too, which is a plus point since today we had like +15*C and rain, nearly the whole day. I tell you, it's a bad summer in these parts for global warming prophets:)

When Did Western Civilisation Go Downhill?

 Probably when Victorians decided parts of the Bible were "mean". It's true that the New Testament supersedes the OT, but the Old Testament is not there to only fill up space, either. 

In fact, many New Testament commands are right there in OT, too, including one of the most famous and important Love thy neighbour as thyself.

Leviticus 19 gives several commands on dealing with your neighbour starting with verse 13 and sums it up as follows (vs 18, KJV)

Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

What does it really mean to love your neighbour? Modern liberal Christians will tell you it means being "nice" and accept him (her) as they are. Yet the very preceding verse states:

Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.

Here is a case when I think a modern translation conveys the meaning better so I turned to NIV:
 
Rebuke your neighbor frankly so you will not share in their guilt. 
 
Loving your neighbour actually means rebuking them, and being all nice and "tolerant" is in fact, hating them:
 
and not suffer sin upon him;
unconvinced of, unrepented of and persisted in, which may prove of fatal consequence to him; and therefore to let him alone, and go on in it without telling him of it, and reproving him for it, would be so far from acting the kind and friendly part, and showing him love and respect, that it would be an evidence of hating him at heart,
 
 
The most popular phrase in Dutch language is probably "everybody must know for himself".  It's right on par with the 1st satanist commandment:
 
  
(Please note that though the article linked above is written about the USA, it's actually true about all Western countries, all of which are at best, post-Christian).
 
Yet, the Scriptures tell us right here that not rebuking your neighbour is participating in his sin and even sharing in their guilt:
 
"and not bear sin for him" F1; become a partner with him in his sin, and so become liable to bear punishment for it; which is a strong reason for reproving sin, in a proper manner, lest we should be partakers of other men's sins  

(John Gill)
 
BTW, the idea of niceness has probably very long roots, since J. Gill stresses that we should be "gentle, meek and tender", while even a somewhat liberal NIV says nothing about tenderness:

Rebuke your neighbor frankly
 
that is, in a frank manner :
 
used when giving an honest and direct opinion, often one that might upset someone:
Quite frankly, I think this whole situation is ridiculous.
That's a frankly absurd suggestion.
 
(Quoted from here)

So when did it really go downhill? Probably when people decided that being kind is more important than being right. It's all fine to be nice in social settings, but there are times when frankness is needed...

George Bernard Shaw And Vaccines

 George Bernard Shaw was a very interesting person. 

A progressive who admired Mussolini and a life-long vegetarian who did use animal liver at one point to combat anemia, he was staunchly against vaccines which he called "a peculiarly filthy piece of witchcraft" and took part in campaign against mandatory smallpox vaccination. 

In his opinion, people would stop dying from infectious diseases when their nutrition and living conditions improved.

Western Men Emasculating Themselves

 Recently I have been pondering why Western men are often such wimps. What is happening? Can it only be attributed to lying media propaganda and soy consumption? 

Then I stumbled upon this discussion (please forgive me for linking to Roosh forum twice in one week:)

Could it be an answer to my question? Just like the Pill and hysterectomies, male sterilisation is pushed by the medical system as not only being safe, but being good for health, too.

Yet, one internet search brought these results:

Small testicles and shrunken penis after excision are a very real problem for many men, and so are many other serious complications.

It's interesting that they link to an African study done on giant rats which proves that 

unilateral vasectomy in the AGR may result in perturbations of the histo-architecture of the testes with possible decline in function.

In other words, it turns them into eunuchs and that with only one testicle affected. Of course, Africans are still less politically correct about these things than the "enlightened" West which sees fertility as a health crisis.

Here is one man's experience of vasectomy:

Since my original vasectomy, I have undergone six additional surgeries and nerve blocks in an attempt to stop the chronic pain, including a four and a half-hour testicular reconstruction and vasectomy reversal. I have been offered 90 medications in conjunction with innumerable therapies. Some approaches have offered temporary relief, but none have provided a cure. Other men I’ve come in contact with who have experienced the same type of painful consequences from their vasectomy procedures have been dealing with the aftereffects for five to ten years and more. The negative effects of tubal ligation for women and many other long-term methods of birth control used by women are well known. Unlike vasectomies, though, this has been discussed openly for many years. Men and women should consider the possible substantial negative results before seeking surgical sterilization.

Of course, some and even many men won't experience these severe side effects, but what about psychological implications of neutering oneself for both the man and his partner? 

Turks who live around here appear to be much more masculine, could it be partly due to the fact that the most popular form of contraception in Turkey and presumably in diaspora, is a pull-out method (which despite lies, is proven to be more effective than condoms)? So that his old lady knows if she is particularly unpleasant he can leave and start another family with some hot young thing? Who knows...

Well, may be my theory is just that, a theory. But do we  still believe that our current "betters" really wish us well? That includes the Western medical establishment. 

The only church in the West which calls sterilisation a sin is the Catholic Church, as far as I know. Yet, do you even have to be religious to understand that permanent mutilation of one's body is hardly a good idea? Human fertility is not a disease.

A Serious Question

 Today I missed out on buying a book about warrior moles. Am I getting too old?

It's a serious question!!!

They Don't Make Them Like That Any More

 Lieutenant-General Sir Adrian Paul Ghislain Carton de Wiart,[1] VC, KBE, CB, CMG, DSO (5 May 1880 – 5 June 1963) was a British Army officer born of Belgian and Irish parents. He was awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest military decoration awarded for valour "in the face of the enemy" in various Commonwealth countries.[2] He served in the Boer War, First World War, and Second World War. He was shot in the face, head, stomach, ankle, leg, hip, and ear; was blinded in his left eye; survived two plane crashes; tunnelled out of a prisoner-of-war camp; and tore off his own fingers when a doctor declined to amputate them. Describing his experiences in the First World War, he wrote, "Frankly I had enjoyed the war."[3]

We used to have men like this, now they want to breastfeed, oh sorry, chestfeed...

Miraculous Healing?

 they do happen!

I'd had tendinitis in my wrist for a couple of months. It started when I was turning a mattress. I tried Chinese acupressure, bandages and ointments, nothing helped. Luckily , it didn't cause much pain, but the swelling was always present. It's my right hand, too.

Now if you do a search on it, the official medical info will tell you that you need medication and probably also an operation.  I decided just to wait and see since it wasn't bothering me that much.

Then I caught a cold. Nothing special but with this "delta variant" scare I wanted to get rid of it as soon as possible so I decided to try some vit.C. Now I have read that our bodies don't really absorb synthetic vit.C supplements well, especially in doses higher than 250 mg (mcg? I forget what it is), so I bought cranberry juice instead. Not the sugary mix from the supermarket either, but the real thing, pure and undiluted (it tastes horrible).

The cold became better after a couple of days, but since I already opened a bottle  I kept drinking it for several more days. Mostly put a tablespoon in my tea. When the bottle was finished, the next day the swelling in my wrist was gone completely. Just like that.

I haven't done anything different, outside of cranberry juice and an extra helping of yogurt in the morning, but it couldn't be yogurt, could it now? I think cranberry juice. 

Thoughts?

Anyway, it proves that natural remedies work and that our food and drink influence us more than we think.

Careers Making Women Infertile

 That was the whole point of it:

The 50-minute-long training session left Huston, who weighs 113lb and wears 45lb of line gear plus a 25lb chainsaw strapped to her back, exhausted beyond anything she’d felt before. “I could feel the fatigue literally in my womb,” the 23-year-old says.

Huston is a hotshot – a firefighter who battles wildfires. She hasn’t had a period in three years, something she attributes to the physical intensity of the job, and the brutal training sessions crews are put through...

Research Jahnke conducted in 2018 surveyed 1,821 women in the force. The report found 27 percent of firefighters’ pregnancies ended in miscarriage, while rates of pre-term birth were as high as 16.7 percent, higher than the national average of 10 percent.

The solution is, of course, to have kinder, gentler fires that pregnant ladies will have little difficulty putting out:

Firefighters are regularly exposed to chemicals like carbon monoxide, ammonia and known carcinogens, which, according to the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics, are linked to early miscarriage, birth defects, slowed fetal growth, impeded brain development and preterm labor.

It's because fires are a tool of the patriarchy, government should have forbidden wildfires long ago. Then women could just get a high salary without actually doing anything at all:

“Women are being failed by a system that is intrinsically built around, and for, men,” says Dr Sara Jahnke, the director and senior scientist at the National Development & Research Institutes, which focuses on public health.

 “There is no room for sexual harassment or gender-based discrimination in the fire service,” said USFA fire administrator Tonya Hoover. 

When choosing a career for your daughter, remember, we are all equal! As for children, we can always import them, after all we are doing quite a good job right now...

Internet Censorship Strikes Again?

Another Deadly Sin

The indecency we’ve accepted from American television over the last four decades would be impossible in Muslim countries, not because of tyrannical theocrats, but because of the massive protests that would explode in the streets. I remember watching Forrest Gump in Cairo. All kissing had been cut out, and Jenny’s nude performance of Dylan’s Blowin’ in the Wind. We are wrong to dismiss criticisms we receive for our celebration of promiscuity, even when those critiques come from sources that are otherwise poor models for us. Any TV executive in Qatar who allowed the smut American producers promote would have a throng of angry Arabs outside his office screaming for his head...

If You Want Something Done Well...

 Do it yourself! After my help got a burnout and quit some time ago, I have re-discovered my hidden homemaking talents and since I started trying a new housekeeping schedule  my house looks much better than it ever did before. Consistency is the key. 

It took me 2 hours to clean this cupboard yesterday (it's only a part of it as it's quite big). I don't have a before picture, but believe me, it looked horrible:) 


I'm actually quite proud :) I have come to the conclusion that it's better not to rely on anyone unless it's absolutely necessary. Cleaning could be boring but the results are more than worth it, imo!

Vegans Are An Anti-Vegetarian Psy-Op

 Change my mind:)

My arguments:

Vegetarians have existed like for ages. One of my mother's friends was (and still is) pretty much a pescatarian, though she eats chicken liver sometimes for the vitamins. In India, some areas have been vegetarian for centuries, even without modern supplements this diet seems sustainable, though a restrictive one. 

On the other hand, even 20 years ago few people heard about vegans. Yet now, if you try to do a search on vegetarianism the only thing you come across are militant vegans.

Vegan diet isn't sustainable in the long run without supplements (at least b12) and many quit and go into the other opposite, pushing meat-only diets. 

Those behind this psy-op have probably heavily invested in both vegan products/supplements and meat industry and thus profit both ways, while sensible folks interested in vegetarian-leaning diets are scared away by the fanatical vegan rantings (and horror stories of ex-vegans). 

Others, especially gullible young women decide that vegan is the way to go and more often than not destroy their health and fertility, while making the vegan industry rich, then often turn to the other extreme, as I mentioned above.

It's interesting that vegans often attack vegetarians more than omnivores, calling them traitors and such. 

Thoughts?

Violence In Europe

Chaos In Berlin 

I should add that there were also mass protests on Saturday, among others in France, Italy and Amsterdam.

Also, Germany hasn't introduced corona passport yet, they are right now scaring dissenters into submission speaking theoretically about "what could happen if cases reached a certain number".

Americans on the Telegram were blaming "nazi". It's an amazing thing that NSDAP was utterly destroyed and defeated by the Allies in the 1945 and yet, so many people are still valiantly fighting against   nazi boogiemen some 75 years after the fact. No, the current government of Germany aren't Nazi any more than the current government of the USA is, they are the children and grandchildren of those put in power by the winners.

Orders Are Orders

 We used to laugh at krauts Germans sometimes saying that they are sticklers for the rules, but recently we found out it's really true for the big part of their population.

As you probably know, masks have been largely abolished here in the Netherlands, but you still have to wear them inside in Germany and Belgium. Well, when we were on vacation the borders got finally open and we visited both these countries. In Belgium, most folks were wearing masks under their noses, the way it used to be done over here when it was mandatory.

In Germany, though...There was a village close to the border with a big supermarket which we like very much. It usually sells lots of stuff of all sorts. I will admit, I've been missing German interior design and gardening magazines so I was quite enthusiast about going there even though I had to wear my mask again. Inside we noticed people were staring at us in a funny way, I was wondering why. 

And then a lady shop assistant approached us and told us we had a WRONG SORT OF MASK ON! Ours were from fabric bought in a common store while in Germany you have to wear a special government-approved one with a number on it! A medical grade one, from a pharmacy. To say I was mad is an understatement. 

They all had theirs pulled up all the way to their eyes, btw. Ultimately it was for the best though, because while we were debating whether we should may be still go there for a couple of day, they got flooded, exactly the area which we were planning to visit.

Enfin, I guess no Germany for me this year as I'm not optimistic about autumn. In Iceland they already say the whole circus will last 15 years. We'll see...

Conspiracy Or Incompetence?

 There are so many conspiracy theories going around. NWO, globalists, population reduction etc. Some people say that viruses are a conspiracy and they don't exist in reality. The main reason I took the corona stuff seriously in the beginning was because of all the usual suspects shouting about "plandemic". Frankly, many of those guys sound paranoid. 

It doesn't mean they are wrong on everything, though. But for many people, it's like the Garden of Eden moment, their eyes got opened and they finally realised the king was naked. Yet, this whole NWO thing has been going strong since 'good guys' won WWII. The first vaccines were pushed on everyone already in the 1950s. Some of them already had aborted fetus cells back then. Boomers were easily influenced by the TV and they ate it all hook, line and sinker. 

I don't exactly support VD's rants about the day of the pillow, but we do have a boomer question, to a degree. Most boomers thought the new world emerging in the 1960s and 1970s, with its unlimited credit, easy travelling, anticonception and disappearance of many diseases was simply great. And it's boomers in many cases who are the most vaccinated. We are told to subject teenagers to experimental vaccines so that the boomers could live longer. 

The world has also been getting dumber. In the 19th century, working class were reading Dickens. Nowadays the middle class are watching dumb TV shows. Instead of meritocracy we get 'gender' and ethnicity quotas. Politicians only think about how to survive the next election and are afraid to take responsibility. The majority are addicted to their smartphones. 

Enter Corona. Whatever it really is, whether it's just a more dangerous type of flu or a lab grown virus, I do think it's real, however, it's been handled with gross incompetence, used by politicians for dirty games, the mortality exaggerated, the possible treatments thrown out to push for the experimental vaccines etc etc. It could be that the conspiracy theorists are right. But it also could be just the incompetence of our rulers, the failure of the post war system, and the arrogance of those who think they have the power to eradicate diseases and to command nature (in reality, God).

Heck, it could even be both...

See you all later, have a nice time!

P.S. Just a reminder. Normally on this blog, all comments on posts older than 12 days automatically go in moderation. Since I get lots of spam, I don't often check them. Just did right now and saved 3 comments from limbo. Excuses:)

Does Modern Lifestyle Cause Anxiety?

 Some time ago Matt Walsh got a lot of flak on Twitter for his suggestion that anxiety is not a disease. People were telling him about their anxiety disorder and how some things cause them panic attacks and that they can't function without medication.

Most of them were women, btw. That made me think. People nowadays are told to ignore their instincts. Yet getting anxious or even panicky may be your body's way to tell you to stop and rethink what you are doing. Progressives made a big deal about "mother's little helpers" and talked incessantly about 1950s housewives needing pills to get them through the day, yet how is it different from a woman who needs antidepressants to be able to function in work setting?

In fact, I doubt modern feminism would even be possible without anticonception pill and other drugs which make being an office drone or other similar jobs more or less tolerable.

Since I'm not a doctor I can't give medical advice on topic of disorders and mental health, but if you are suffering from anxiety it may be a good idea to try and find out what exactly is it you are so worried about. It could be the school your children attend, financial problems, in-laws, or work situation if you are employed.  You may feel trapped or stuck but taking medication to numb your natural reaction isn't really a good way out. 

Don't force yourself to do things which make you really uncomfortable. Don't be afraid to say, no. If the idea of going on vacation with your mother-in-law interrupts your night rest, just cancel it. If the neighbour pushes you to babysit for her because she wants to work longer hours and you have your hands full with taking care of your own family tell her to send her kids to daycare. Don't ruin your health because you are trying to please others. It's OK to change your mind. 

You don't have to be a martyr, it's OK to just enjoy your life.

The Importance Of Freedom Of Conscience

 I was planning to begin this post by stating that the freedom of conscience is an important Western value, but then remembered that even in Muslim countries, at least in theory, Christians are supposed to practice their faith unmolested if they pay a special tax (I think it's called jizzya, but too lazy to check).

In Europe, this freedom was born out of Reformation and the religious wars that followed it. In the end, we recognised that every person should be free to follow his or her own conscience in the matters of faith and principles. Some say it was beginning of liberalism but I honestly don't care. While I disagree with many things in the modern society, I don't think we should throw the baby out with the bathwater, so to say, as the recent lockdowns proved.

You can abuse the notion of freedom and stretch it to promote sin/vice, but it doesn't mean that (political) freedom in itself is wrong. 

The reason I decided to write about it is because some people apparently believe that the freedom of conscience only exists for men, not for women. What I'm referring to is the modern teaching on wifely submission. While progressives scorn the very idea, some religious people go the other direction and take it too far, claiming that the husband is the final authority on everything outside of outright criminal behaviour, like murder, which the wife is still not supposed to commit if commanded.

I recently heard about some lady who didn't want to get vaxxed but did it anyway because her husband persuaded her. Personally I don't think that a decision on so controversial a topic should be taken under pressure from others. After all, we are talking here about YOUR health.  If you choose to do it, you do it for yourself, not for others. 

There are things which one spouse simply can't and shouldn't force the other one to do. He or she can't force the other one go against their convictions. Here I think it's important to make a distinction between a preference and a conviction. For instance, a woman may prefer to wear long dresses but her husband doesn't like how she looks in them. It this situation, it would be wise to follow his taste more than her own, since after all, it's (hopefully) her own husband she's trying to please with the way she looks.

On the other hand, she may have a conviction against wearing a miniskirt, in which case it would go against her conscience to do it. A better example would probably be the anti-conception pill. Many Protestants seem to think it's fine, while the Catholic Church expressly prohibits it. For a Catholic woman, to follow her husband in this matter would mean to go against her Church's teaching and her own conscience.

And you should consider that going against one's conscience never pays. There is an old poem called Soldier Of Fortune which deals exactly with this topic. One could think that it's just a poetic Victorian exaggeration they were so prone to, but it's still true nowadays. If you go against your deep, heart-felt convictions for worldly profit, or to please others around you, it will never pay, but vice versa, it will ruin your self-image, destroy your inner peace and break you as a person. You will despise yourself for your weakness, especially if the desired result isn't achieved. 

The end doesn't justify the means, and the fact that you were pressed into doing it won't comfort you in the end, because as a grown-up, deep down you know that there always is a choice and you are the one who bears full responsibility. 

Each of us has or should have a moral/honour code and if you break it, you do it at your own peril. Blind obedience to authority is imo, not Biblical and we should always use our power of discernment. 

I should add that I'm not talking about ordinary things like what to eat for dinner or which colour wallpaper to choose for your bedroom, but I guess you all understand what I meant! 

Or so I hope...

The Big Brother IS Watching You

We have finally arrived:

 “You turn on your smart TV. It is probably identifying everything you watch and sending the data to the manufacturer, third parties, or both.

“If you had time to read the privacy policies of the objects you buy, you would also have noticed that your TV picks up and records your spoken words and reserves the right to transmit them to other organisations.

“Intelligence agencies such as MI5 and the CIA can make your TV look as though it is off while they record you. Your digital assistant Alexa may be listening too.”

Liberation Day

 Well, technically it was Saturday, the day that face masks were officially abolished, but I visited a supermarket for the first time today. I saw one man with a mask on. He was Chinese. And three women. The rest, including the elderly, were all running around without and thoroughly enjoying themselves.

Now I should say our supermarket was never very strict with enforcing the rules, unlike some others, but it's probably best not to talk about it too much:)

Anyway, it's finally freedom! I hated the nasty things. (Though you still have to wear one in public transport). I just wonder for how long, before a new horrible mutation will reach us...Right now I'm in a celebratory mood, though. What about you?

On "Sweet And Submissive" Foreign Women

 But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites;

2 Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.

3 And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.

There is a whole group of male online "experts" which will try to convince you that Western women are all bad, slutty, feminist, you name it and suggest moving to some "based" Latino/Asian or more recently, Eastern European country which are all full of "sweet and submissive", feminine women, who would love you a long time, and if not exactly "nubile virgins" , they will be reasonably young and fit and simply dreaming of marrying an overweight Anglo/American man in his late 40s and 50s.

The countries they name are all overwhelmingly very poor and corrupt, the moment a country's living standard raises just a bit, they will tell you that "women have become too Western and feminist" for their taste.

These same guys will constantly mock older/divorced women "who hit the wall" if they go to some non-Western country searching for romance, while advocating exactly the same for men. Apparently, it's different for men because these women they hook up with in exotic countries, do it out of pure love and devotion and not at all for money, yet, is it true in all cases? As a certain famous person says, let's find out!

So here is a recent story from Britain:

This is a story about how a British man lost most of his life savings, as well as his dignity. And how Ukraine's justice system laughed in his face.

James is not his real name.

Such is his embarrassment that he's told no-one in the UK his story, not even his family. The BBC has verified his account of what happened using bank documents, official records, text messages, and interviews with many of those directly involved. 

It used to be Poland, but then women in Poland got "too Western"

Ukraine is one of Europe's poorest countries, with an average wage of about $350 (£247) a month. There's a thriving "dating" industry here. It's multi-faceted and ranges from pay-per-mail email services to face-to-face "romance tours", where Western men pay thousands of dollars to meet a series of prospective young Ukrainian "wives".

I have come across some men promoting Ukraine as the latest destination for "submissive wives" lately, I wonder if they are involved in this "industry" somehow. 

A charity worker living in the UK, he was asked by a friend in 2015 to help set up a new project supporting children fleeing the conflict zone in Ukraine's east...

Then that winter, a heavy snowfall brought their work in Odessa to a halt. There wasn't much to do, so Julia suggested that James might like to go on a date with one of her friends.

That friend was Irina. Then 32 years old, she was from Donetsk, one of the cities in eastern Ukraine that are now occupied by Russian-backed fighters. It soon became clear that her troubled past went much deeper than just fleeing war.

"She immediately told me about two previous marriages and why she didn't want to marry a Ukrainian man again," James says.

 Apparently, 2 failed marriages only count as "red flags" in western women.

There was an age difference of 20 years but James says they got on "like a house on fire". 

The poorer the country, the more your chance for a "nubile young virgin" or something very close to it is! 

So as is the case with much of Odessa's "dating" scene, a translator, in this case Julia, was always there - and getting paid up to $150 (£107) a day.

Two proverbs come to mind. There is no fool like an old fool, and a fool and his money are easily parted. 

But intimacy, even kissing, was off-limits. Translator Julia was always there and Irina told him she didn't believe in sex before marriage.

"I thought: 'That's a very high moral standard'," James says. "She'd obviously been brought up very well."

Yes, unlike the Western wh*res, these women are all pure and innocent, even after 2 divorces...

To cut a long story short, the woman and her friend then scammed him out of a big part of his live savings, and even went so far as to arrange a sham marriage between James and Irina's friend Kristina, all for the purpose of money transfer. Both women were married at that time and Kristina temporarily divorced, then remarried her Ukrainian husband again.

"I was told that divorcing Kristina then re-marrying Irina would be an easy thing to do."

The money was released and that very afternoon Kristina and Irina announced that all of the $200,000 had been spent on an apartment. He would later discover the new place had actually cost just $60,000 (£42,310) and was not his alone, but jointly owned with his legal spouse (the wedding planner) Kristina.

"I was such an idiot," James would later say.

...

James didn't know it at that point, but his fiancee Irina already had a husband. Official records seen by the BBC show that she's been married to Andriy Sykov since August 2015, three months before she met James.

Kristina the wedding planner also had a husband, called Denys, but he was apparently more willing to play along. Records show Kristina divorced Denys three weeks before she signed the paper to marry James. Once the scam marriage was over, she married Denys again.

 On his wedding night, the unlucky James was poisoned with a spiked drink and ended up in hospital. When he finally realised he had been scammed, he went to police, with predictable results:

Four times he went to the Odessa police, giving his account of what had happened and the evidence he'd collected.

"At times they laughed in my face," he said.

Ukraine's police force, and Odessa's in particular, have a pretty rotten reputation for fighting crime. Marriage scams, even unusual ones like this, are a long way down their list of priorities...

Getting the police to act often involves bribing them but it was something which James refused to do.

 The same internet personalities often will extoll the virtues of the countries where the police and other officials are easily bribed, btw.

James says he decided to tell the BBC his story to warn others tempted to seek romance in Ukraine. 

I doubt it will help as these men will rather believe some "bro expert" online than anything from the MSM.

James himself, btw, didn't learn much, either, and got involved with another charity:

James has endured too much to get his hopes up. He's got another charity job now and is trying to move on.

A part of the white man's burden , I guess!

Detoxifying From News

 Even though it is Guardian:

 News is toxic to your body. It constantly triggers the limbic system. Panicky stories spur the release of cascades of glucocorticoid (cortisol). This deregulates your immune system and inhibits the release of growth hormones. In other words, your body finds itself in a state of chronic stress. High glucocorticoid levels cause impaired digestion, lack of growth (cell, hair, bone), nervousness and susceptibility to infections. The other potential side-effects include fear, aggression, tunnel-vision and desensitisation.
