bbc r4 this morning around 08:50 we hear of the predicament of foster children and how they suffer from multiple homes during childhood and how at age eighteen all professional support stops. I knew of this already, the reason being we are told that ‘insurance’ by which I think they mean professional liability insurance stops when the subject / service user reaches eighteen. Imagine, just at the point when perhaps need is greatest, the need to be mentored and help with the many transitions unfolding, finding a place to live, a job etc etc.
Why is it we are chok-a-blok with BS, that common sense seems in such short supply?
I too was homeless at eighteen, dad was dead six months and my dreadful so-called ‘mother’ couldn’t wait to get rid of me. After suffering the loss of my wife I can say that it takes a full three years to walk on upright again from such a shock to the system, a heavy blow to the head. Never mind, after eleven months in digs and a fortnight to get out, my wife to be fell from heaven and looked after me. Luckily I had an apprenticeship and my boss arranged / twisted an arm to get my dads lifetimes collections of tools and apparatus housed meanwhile. God indeed does look after us.
The reason I write this post is the bumptious middle class and blinkered twaddle from bbc r4 John Humphries for immediately responding to the contributing expert with something like “Oh well they’ll soon be off to University” !!!
I don’t think so !!! … for the ordinary child from ordinary often quite stressed and basic housing University is something from another kingdom, another world. They will never have met or spoken with anyone from University apart from perhaps a teacher. For many kids even a job, any job is near unattainable. Where the heck do these woolly over-comforted presenters come from? Oh I know … from comfortable middle-class homes that have that weird ingredient called ‘possibilities’. How so different from the vast majority of the ‘forgotten’.
We seem to be in a near euphoric over-estimation of both the value and the attainability of a University Education. Many courses are nonsense near garbage time-fillers. Yet how often does one hear or encounter anyone that has sufficient interest in a subject to pursue it in their own free time, of self-study and reading at home? This is extremely rare; but curiously so many are falling over themselves to be part of a Uni experience. Seems to me too many have fallen in love with the idea and have dispensed with a pragmatic reality.
It is said ‘we become our fathers’ and indeed in my case the extra two years fourteen to sixteen did me little good, the old apprentice idea at fourteen was not as bad as supposed. If it was an idea from Japan oh my goodness it would become soooo trendy. To be cloistered (or hindered) to sixteen plus with a gaggle of kids is not the best path to becoming an adult, or skilled.
Donald trump must be aching with agony and fear as at Biarritz G7 he is encountering for a rare instance people other than ‘yes men’ or long-time established American allies and partners in which he can act the bully. This time it is encounters with people of intelligence, depth, education and vast experience, people who ‘serve’ and are not fixed to a crooked low-knowledge mindset, people that will have risen by hard effort and worked with some of the finest. In Biarritz no marching bands, no BS five second sound-bites for tv fixated Donald, no whirring helicopter engine to add drama and importance to his neck-jarring about-turns or made-up junk. I applaud the idea and workings and facilitations that G7 allows, contrary to Gordon Browns recent quite churlish denigration of G7 on bbc r4 news.
This time trump will encounter depth and I hope he encounters criticism of his stupid brainless antics. trump as a person doesn’t deserve to be in any position at G7, hopelessly out of his depth; but never mind by hook or by crook he somehow landed in the Oval Office as seemingly unfit he is proving to be and as a hollow yet excitable and unpredictable most certainly non-genius will have to be served and humoured for the time being for the position he represents.
I’d like to think it would prove in some small way an ‘education’ but Donald is so used to from early days being at war with all and sundry from his no questions priveliged yet frighteningly uneducated bubble that I doubt it can ever help. He knows and will have been recently tutored to ‘hang-on-in’ and not run away as in previous encounters.
Ooh … wheres Ivanka? Totally unqualified of course, yet certainly this is another trophy to be bagged.
That in fact Donald J trump does in fact 100% agree climate change is well and truly altering this planet in his ludicrous desire to ‘buy’ Greenland. Its the same as his bizarre insistence on yet more ‘Border Wall’ when in fact sufficient exists already. trump is very much yesterdays man now but how long will the morally and ethically moribund Republicans shore him up, to prop a limp doll now totally irrelevant to the real world.
Instead of picking fights with the Chinese he should be thanking them for the huge profits generated in the West from buying from China as a low cost supplier.
trump is clueless utterly clueless, is fed just sufficient low brow notions and redundant glimpses of untruths from his backers to keep him dangling alive with a few pronouncements amid a whirring helicopter engine meanwhile behind closed doors the real destruction and roll-backs continue. All accusations trump has ever thrown at others are in fact applicable more accurately to himself, namely he IS the swamp.
Greenland proves trump knows fine well climate change is a huge vast engine of change that cannot be stopped. I write this post as unusually google / youtube is offering me better search results than usual ie reaching out of the Windows 10 bubble that is a restriction that arrived with this replacement stack a few months ago.
Below we are told Greenland has lost eleven billion tons of ice in one day and the sea worldwide rose half a millimetre in ONE DAY! Remember also that thermal expansion will raise ocean levels still further.
Note in the last two seconds of the vid below how all the river flow disappears down a hole to also erode and melt from below, as if Swiss cheese.
Abysmally low IQ, poor reading skills and even worse comprehension of any sort other than self-centred crow-bar ‘me-me-me mentality’, the worst product of a sheltered priveliged bubble, but however an ace B/S’er, a real five second soundbite front of camera performer, reality tv coached and tv forming his complete world view. His blood is from a line of con-men, B/S’ers, people selling you something, schemers of the worst sort, maverick tax fraudsters, (I pay mine in full and gladly). From gold-rush horse meat hotels and brothels to latching onto a gravy train of NY City inducements for developers intentionally with a layer of additional needless corruption to cream off another slice of probably illegal margin (ie Northern Counties) to merely renting out a brand, its all a trump characterstic.
Here we have the UK Guardian reporting on the idiocy and cheesy Mc Cheester known as Donald trump. The text itself is exquisite, thankyou Tom McCarthy. Note to add whirring helicopter engine sound during all this B/S as spewed from trumps infantile yet rancid ramblings.
Idiot, total idiocy, zero Diplomatic presence or ability; stupidity beyond belief, wrecking ball trump.
I adore Greenland and feel sad Donny the backward boy has hurled his unpleasant presence desiring to ‘buy Greenland !!
Postscript. To use the trump catch phrase ‘people are saying’ … people are saying its not worthwhile pointing a mic at this fool anymore. Contradicting himself continually a mere puppet of the unpleasant big business dirty white money that holds him in place as long as he is useful to them and that includes Putin. Make-believe and reality tv have bled off the page and can now be seen without doubt to be the nonsense that it actually is; a hotch-potch brew of spew and B/S that ‘people are saying’ they no longer have patience to give it airtime. As Rachel Maddow in a fascinating piece after the link below tells us as we’ve known for a long time ie Noam Chomsky has said all along, don’t bother to listen to what they say but certainly watch what they do.
This is why from day one he has ‘gone after the press’ and tried in all ways to denigrate free-thinking reportage.
trump knows fine well the free press is the one big obstacle that will be his downfall as he wishes to spout his Orwellian low IQ nightmare. His own downfall is inbuilt from day one; a clown, a charade.
Heres a rattle bag of items that shed a little more light on the chemtrail problem. This morning north east UK at 0700 its chemtrails in profusion, an hour later little evidence remains other than an ‘aluminized sky’ which of course was the desired intention. Not much in the way of chemtrails up here in the last few weeks, maybe my blogging scares them away, after all why attract adverse publicity and hence avoids the blogging ‘hot spots’. Theres very few people on the web that pursue this chemtrail problem for more than a few months or are currently active. In this modern age, of course attention is being paid to adverse web publicity, the web as the influencer, the web the be all and end all of so much human attention is of course monitored and heeded, if I don’t see it then I cannot photograph it. Several times there has been intense chemtrail activity out into the North Sea, sometimes the wind drift will bring it over into my ‘cone of view’ and create the giveaway signs of chemtrail deposited further afield; NASA Worldview is not infallible, I’d say at most a thirty to fifty percent chance of picking up chemtrail activity.
I had assumed googling for ‘chemtrails Biarritz’ would have produced plenty of chemtrail imagery yet in fact not much so far.
It beggars belief such obvious chemtrail activity DOES NOT ring any bells among the photographer, the vendor, the potential purchaser etc. Ranks offensive as landscape and property pics with crazy over the top skies and sunsets beloved of the amateur / advanced amateur fancying themselves as a professional photographer. Photography should be about capturing reality, with the photographers ‘canny eye’ and inventive wit, but certainly not a Disney concoction of colour and hyper-illusionistic sunset crap. You can see I have a bee in my bonnet re enhanced or doctored images. My own at least 100k images enable one to develop a sensibility and intelligence beyond mere software.
Lets see some chemtrails courtesy of the property listings, let us trawl around and glean what we can find from unwitting photographers.
The chemtrails above (in Cumbria) are even reflected in the water!
Look closely, as with all things worthwhile it takes a little effort, something in short supply these modern times.
Theres a pattern to my searches looking for chemtrail geoengineering, can you see ? ie Lake District, Welsh coast, Isle of Man, English south coast, Brittany, Monaco – I know all these places receive chemtrail geoengineering as regularly observed on NASA Worldview.
