The nonsense we are told.

bbc r4 this morning devoted a few minutes to some top medical bod telling us we mostly all carry too much weight (yes I agree) and need to look at calories and not particularly look at fat or sugar content (I don’t agree). There was no mention of sedentary tv and i-phone lifestyle, that kids seldom if ever play outside, that so many are hooked on the battery chicken Disney lifestyle, browsing, never making or doing much in particular.  Particularly there was no condemnation of off-the-shelf meals, an over-reliance of frozen as opposed to fresh and the resultant lack of good quality nutrition.

My immediate reaction to this un-thinking piece of low grade journalistic nonsense was how unquestioning the interviewer was. As the famous Mr Meatloaf was quoted recently all you need do is look at sugar and fat….. to which I would add get into home-cooking and some vigorous walking exercise. The latter is so now desperately needed that a few weeks previous again bbc r4 ran a piece that Docs are desperate for pre-op patients wherever possible to get into exercise and a healthier lifestyle. This I concur entirely. It must be hellish to have to deal with raw material ie patients that are so tragically unfit.

I personally do not enjoy eating out whatsoever to the extent I would dread such an invitation.  Surely its more fun to cook and learn at home, the beautiful aromas, the tweaking and experience gained in getting something ‘just right’, a friend and a drink surely what more could you want … and think of the money saved!  Yes it takes time but at least we are not sat in front of the tv or dreaded I-phone and are somehow active and building a skill.

Likewise other moans today, American propaganda in general and specifically the downed airliner.  I am increasingly highly sceptical of any intel or pronouncements offered from the Americans, particularly anything with the taint of trump attached to it. I personally think it was truly shameful that trump upped the tensions in the Middle East with the assassination Soleimani. And as the third article suggests, its probable the Americans can fool enemy radar into mis-identifying the data they see on their radar screens.

Heres some brain food ….

… trump is not credible from whatever angle.

Personally I can’t stand to hear his voice, the voice of a bragging pretending un-educated way too far elevated B/S’er. A con-man basically … ask his many (many) creditors from previous decades and failed enterprises.

In normal life we have qualifications to gain, experience to be accrued, time to be served as in gaining that experience which will place us in a position appropriate to our abilities.  Not this fella, a second rate tv prog and wham he gets into the Oval Office. His hobby is his Big Boy marker, how many times am I mentioned in the NY Press today?

This peculiar tele-prompter foul-up is purveyed as a speech from the President of the United States, how standards have slipped! Military man on our right looks a total nervous wreck and I suppose WH Eunuch Pence is in obeyance somewhere. Apparently trumps entrance was highly ‘stage-managed’ ie bright light, silhouette, etc etc. trump is a nobody.

Is trump ‘on something’ ? … certainly seems to me he is, note the sniffling, the pursed strange mouth posture, WTF? If this were anyone else a drug test would be called for.

Where are our critical faculties? The world deserves better than this.

When is idiocy going to be called out for what it is?

This is awful !

 

I haven’t the patience to listen to all of this turgid drone, but as listening carefully to little bits of the garbage and mangled incomprehensible junk he spews as a so called message to the Nation note how he gets word mangled into absolute nonsense. And we are all expected to swallow this junk?  I’ve only sampled little bits …

06:23 ‘tolerited’

06:50 ‘accompliments’

etc. Its as if listening to a four year old.

You can see in his eyes, the eyes of all of them this address is a risky venture. These are NOT honest men.

This demonstrates quite clearly he is unfit for Office, has poor reading ability, of limited intellectual ability below most adults and of very limited vocabulary.

trumps words are weasel, his words are worthless.

I think the man on our right is thinking “This ace turd is really stretching my patience”. In fact they all look extremely nervous as to how this pillock will be able to read two teleprompter screens and come anywhere near to a) credible  b) fool anyone, c) get hired for next season.

Can’t anyone remember 2003 and Iraq, how we were all conned and sleep walked into a huge blunder. Being conned the ‘intel’ was rock-solid ie we MUST do this. No we don’t, let sleeping dogs lie, the alternatives and consequences of action are horrible.  Why must the USA act as complete idiots when it comes to the Middle East?

I can hear the same thing again, ordinary people saying “We must do this” when all they have is spoon-fed uncorroborated spiel from a few numskulls that think they know best and have their secret agenda to work towards.

Increasingly I’m finding the web and google quite tricky as a means of getting correct information, firefox was useful, this newer m/c with windows 10 is a clunking ad machine. Never mind, heres the UK Financial Times, which can be regarded as top league and I assume credible.

The sick illegality of trump.

I stop short of using the term ‘clever’ but one can see from this opinion piece in the UK Guardian that there is a distinct hidden agenda, a distinct cleverness in that the repulsive machinations of trump are in fact a ‘clever’ assault on everything good, wholesome, borne of experience and hard won rights, as if the clown and his crew are chipping away long into the night on whatever can be corroded or made substandard. As with Stephen Miller we have a Dominic Cummings.

trump laughs at the Law, barges belligerently Roy Cohn style through established measures and ‘civilised regards’ and he cares nothing for ordinary people, merely something to score points from on social media. I think at this point a low budget biopic would serve very well at providing illumination on this low-life, theres enough crazy truth to preclude ever having to ‘invent’ anything. His manner of movement, his body language tells so much and could be used to explain quite what the monster is in the White House.

trump tries to give the impression he is riding along with the common man but in fact its their back he is riding, its how he ‘got his ticket’ into the White House, an invented and  phoney posture, ‘a put-on act’ to capture votes. It sickens me for instance in the UK when post election there is the analysis, the wringing of hands at the need to re-jig to alter the message, surely parties and MPs as we have here in the UK should be thinking of what is best for the country, not what will catch them votes and give them a ride into power.

Its very clever how trump has done this, knowing that a veneer thin gloss and brag will get him through any encounter, whether its face to face or social media in any form. As with all good con-men he makes you feel he is your friend.

Planting trees will not work.

Why do I not hear people say that planting trees is not a valid solution to climate change / CO2 conversion ?

Plankton, algae and diatoms will or could save us, have until now performed an indispensable part of Earth system balance but are now severely compromised so I’m afraid the idea of oceanic assistance is a non-starter. I doubt either at this point in time the suggestion ‘plant trees in northern regions’ ie the UK will do much good as a valid solution to C02 conversion.  Those nearer the Equator will I hope help, they keep their leaves all year round I think, but increasing desertification and alteration of previously established ‘steady state’ weather systems that are now no longer dependable, I fear are in flux.  So time to get tough with the robber barons, the rapists of the Rain Forest, the nasty above the law types that scramble to make money from Rain Forest and its destruction.

Trees might be a problem in that we haven’t the time to wait for their growth, nor their withdrawl from participating in CO2 conversion once methane hits.

Heres my reasons that the much bandied ‘planting trees to save the planet’ is hollow, a sacrificial fix-all and I fear will not work…

  • here uk trees are without leaves half the year.
  • trees do not rise to counter the effects of increasing C02 … they will fail.
  • changing weather patterns (prob fr the worst) means most trees will be pissed off, drought etc they will fail.

Which means we are stuck with I assume conifererous plantations. I do also hope we can get planting schemes and Local Authorities to work away from their beloved Rowan, near a blight to my mind and the beloved oak is so often overlooked. The time-frame in using trees, even fast-browth conifers as generally supposed is unworkable for the task in hand. Nice idea but it trips up on itself upon examination. Therefore we need technological carbon capture.

Lately on bbc radio news theres lots of examination of the numbers of trees to be planted as incorporated in ‘election pledges’ in the run-up to the election, such numbers are quite worthless at this stage and not worth the airtime, only the results will matter five and ten years from now and we know fine well it will be a fraction of the lowest contender. I think perhaps that is what they were explaining, the nonsense pledges peddled as ‘could be’ reality.  Look at the idiocy of agricultural policy when farmers were paid to take trees out and bycatch at sea was rendered useless and dumped or used as landfill. We seem to be very poor at managing things, of arriving at common-sense practical solutions, of properly husbanding the Earth. However in bbc radio news they have done fine effort at de-bunking the untrue nonsense for instance from Sajid Javid re homeless / rough sleeping from a few days ago. The prog ‘More or Less’ this morning 10th Dec 2019 at 0900 bbc r4 put it well, Javid was talking deliberate nonsense.

Part of a workable solution has to be quite drastic universal population control, it will happen anyway but better do it in a controlled, accepted manner (contraception)  than the screaming and lamentation of an unwanted end to nine tenths of the Earths human passengers. A little rubber bag will save us.

 

 

 

 

ivanka trump…

… sorry but you don’t get caps.

Interesting article in the UK Guardian, demonstrates to be most careful when attempting to appear cleverer than you really are; interesting link in that a window opens to erudition, the lives of people long ago, material that we can learn from.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/nov/23/ivanka-trump-tweet-de-tocqueville-factcheck

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexis_de_Tocqueville

Funny the wiki mentions Metz, a place been rattling around my head from a couple of day now, its a small world at times.

I often wonder to what extent the key-clicking social media ie twitter outreach by the trumps is in fact performed by some lackey with an hour to spare. These are strange people indeed and most certainly should not be anywhere near the White House. Also strange that criticism can be so stymied once self-interest, ego and greed kicks in.

Why is it the trumps soil most everything they touch, are oblivious to the honourable truth? Ace hoodwinkers.

Meanwhile, trumps bizarre, nonsensical and offensive withdrawl from the Paris climate accord, destruction of the EPA, the insane roll back of so many hard won advances on environment and pollution is tantamount to a war crime.

During trumps fake tenure ignorance rules.

 

 

Absurd election pledges.

If it cannot be solved commercially then its utter folly to guarantee broadband to EVERY household in the UK, a wide open pledge that will most certainly come to haunt Labour if God forbid they were in power. Are we not suffering sufficiently already with web addiction?

My smug hapless and bragging IR35 friend a posturing keen to be seen Labour voter likewise will regret the tightening of iffy tax loopholes, much as Diane Abbot realised on radio interview a couple of years ago its essential you can ‘do numbers’ when promising expenditure (re increase on police recruitment). There was austerity for a reason, but its a shame much Council and Social Services were lost, pity the madness of bailing out the Banks or Gordon Brown selling the UK gold reserves at the lowest price !

Inducements like candy for voters go back a long time, originally it was “Vote for me and you get a loaf of bread” possibly a better option than in these ‘modern times’ as the compliant cannot be duped, cannot be brushed aside months or years later when the so-called election pledges are thin memories, they get their loaf.

The absurd simplemindedness of Labours pledges and bribes beggars belief …

a shorter working week,

huge extra money for the NHS,

funding lifelong learning,

comprehensive childcare,

the compulsory purchase of the jewel ie BT broadband.

I might otherwise have been thinking of voting Labour as when you get a ‘good’ or effective Labour MP they shine, but theres too many Labour crew that are woefully and dreadfully lacking. A lot of the above pledges are wide open to manipulation and potentially a needless take-up by the dishonest that is taking for taking sake. Why do we have to fund lifelong learning for someone at taxpayer expense when in fact they would never bother to pick up a book and teach themselves, to gain a groundwork of the subject at home.

For instance personal health and how common sense can save a lot of money later in life, Doctors increasingly encourage people to get out and exercise, to walk as a regular hobby, many will not do this. Look around see the epidemic of obesity. Instead for a near zero cost preventative measure in later life the NHS will have to step in and pick up the pieces.

Corbyn is a master of the soundbite, of the indignant response to injustice and failings of his adversaries, but I think his own travelling caravan of Government would be wasteful, nonsensical, quite a charade.

Its a bad way to run any system, country or business by continually reversing the work of the previous encumbants every few years. Thank God for the Upper House.

Why is it theres so much nonsense around, witness the determination on HS2 to pursue the not needed max upper speed when lowering the upper operating speed a few percent will save billions and possibly save lives and stress in the longterm for everyone.

The one thing no-one is talking about, the increase in UK retirement age which is a scandalous stratification and divisive act of cruelty, this needs to be stopped. 

Raising the retirement age hits the honest and the ordinary, the little people, in the worst way possible. If we are so-called ‘civilised’ then the retirement age should be reduced, not increased. The Chinese for instance find it incredulous we work beyond age fifty. Its all very well politicians that have the opportunity to rest their backsides on occasion to pursue the aged, the hurting and crack the whip further, but can they not realise how quite scandalous and very cruel this policy actually is. Also realise anyone with sufficient money has no need to work any more at some tedious or fatiguing low status job, those that can have already ‘got out’ therefore this stupid retirement age increase hits those that already are hurting, the most vulnerable.

 

 

The gold-plated turd known as trump.

I cannot believe trump is allowed to inhabit the Office of President. It is quite baffling, his apparent low IQ approach and defiance of decency, good sense and not one iota of human compassion renders his Presidency as to be evil. Its his backers that need to be recognised and tallied, a sordid mess. A mobster tenure.

This below is a useful resume of his wrecking ball, super-arrogant and ignorant so-called presidency.

https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/president-trump/opinions-donald-trump-corrupted-absolutely/ar-AAIFZrz?ocid=spartanntp#image=AAyuwGR|29

 

Trump is a clown.
This is the swamp ie trump… a total fake that can barely read !

 

A defiant little shit.

The ultimate fake, schooled by a decade of crummy tv programme and thinking he can ride the tv soundbite, ride the people of the USA.

Look at that face, a face determined to be blinkered to reality, to see nothing, to live in its own constructed bubble, in fact a bubble-gum mentality of nothing over the horizon that could possibly interest him intellectually, nor offer any compassion to anything outside of that bubble. In my opinion he will go down as being quite sordid and the most dreadful aberration to decency and good humanitarian practice one could imagine. Mao of China perpetrated the most dreadful ignorance and callous disregard to rights and human life, trump in his way will be his equal.

Any normal person would be crushed by the embarrassment of being trump, but oh no not Private Bonespurs himself; he exists in his own fantasy bubble. The most recent chaos of destabilising the Middle East and his abandonment of the Kurds is a most evil and callous act, as if acted out without even a moments consideration to the human suffering and turmoil created. But that is the nature of trump, it is an ongoing chaos.

Its strange and frightening how such a destructive individual is by a series of flukes and manouverings, by seeking out vested interests of big money pals and enabled by tv skills honed over a decade has enabled trump to weasel himself into the Oval Office. I’ve met someone like trump before, all that results is a room full of broken toys, festering utter distrust and a fake reality based on fantasy rather than the here and now.
