“I Won’t Be Silenced” – Modern Day Slaves Being Smuggled Into UK During Pandemic – Nigel Farage “Cautioned” By Police

Illegal economic migration immigration into the UK was said to be a key issue, which swayed UK voters to vote leave at the Brexit referendum in 2016. Aside from displacing UK workers from their jobs, driving down wages, the countries the immigrants are leaving are being robbed of their own citizens and workforce – making things worse for those left behind.

Loss for society, win for men? Men are saying NOPE to the institution of marriage at historic rates. (Better Bachelor)

My inner cynic thinks – Seems maybe it’s the men who don’t need (or want) the bicycle, in the end. Or someone broke the rules of fight club, probably JP or Dave Rubin.

COVID-19 Plague – The Lockdown Vs Open-Up Paradox

Lockdown quite possibly could cause the biggest global meltdown in human history, a cure worse than the disease. Opening things back up has the potential risk of the biggest loss of human life we’ve ever experienced. So hence a paradox.

My hope is that rational, clever people will find a solution, that resolves this paradox. They probably won’t be communists or communist controlled organisations, more likely people like Trump and Johnson in USA and UK. Sorry I don’t know the answer for other countries.

My lean is towards opening things back up, with caution, but urgently now. Human life is precious, but in balance we need to be able to feed ourselves, and our loved ones – and have a future – And feed the elderly, sick, infirm etc – we can’t care for our most vulnerable if we’re “just surviving” or worse ourselves.

Can’t You Write Your Own Original Material? Quoting Einstein Has Been Done!

The silver lining, the emotional alchemy – as I’ve said a million times on this blog – is they never cease to give me something to blog about, and it’s made me quite popular. If I have the time, or I’m bored, I might even play with them for a while, and then add their details to my blocklist (do not pass go, do not receive $200) Continue reading Can’t You Write Your Own Original Material?

The Hypocrisy Of Joe Biden And The Media’s Disgusting #MeToo Cover-Up (Sydney Watson)

As I said on the post prior to this one (Daisy Cousens) – I have heard *many* reports from male commentators, I think this issue is best commented on by a female voice – “from the horse’s mouth” so to speak.

Personally as an egalitarian, and I find the hypocrisy of it all, quite disturbing. Seems to be more about power and gain, than anything else.

Michael Moore Presents: Planet of the Humans (Well Done Michael Moore)

To be honest I thought Michael Moore was a deranged weirdo, after bizarre woke comments and absurd tweets I’ve seen within the last few months – but, he’s completely redeemed himself in my eyes with this documentary, exposing the utter fraud and lies behind “green” and “renewable” energy. This documentary came totally out of left field (kinda no pun intended). I could never have anticipated or expected this.
