Self destruction

Re this, what is it about some nations or states that encourages people to behave in a manner that in most cases will only end in tears, and then once the tears are flowing, wants to spend tax payers money (that’s YOUR money) on ‘helping’ the idiots who are taken in by such nefarious businesses?

One of the things I liked and respected about my American friends was that they were very very sensible when it came to responsible lifestyle decisions – probably because I was mixing with a more intelligent crowd it must be said. Gambling is illegal in California, so it was less of an issue, but again, I am sick to death of reading how liberal nations want to spend money on needle exchange and other support systems for people who are directly responsible for their mess.

Counter arguments welcome!

Since I started ‘blogging’ (via email back then) when living in Silicon Valley in the 1990s, and prior to the invention of the term ‘blog’ (that I always thought sounded awful, wrong and crude), I have never informed anyone of my blog or projected my opinion onto others in an unsolicited manner. If I was to do so just once, it would be to get everyone to read this article in the Telegraph that echoes some of what I have posted here, and warns of a dangerous future where those who defend decent values are under threat.

Last day before motorists with pre-2006 cars pay extra £10 ‘T-charge’ to drive in London

Congrats London, you have just ensured that thousands of motorists who rushed out to buy new vehicles are locked into owning still polluting gasoline cars for 5 or 6 years, rather than waiting a year or so to save up for or wait for better performing EVs, such as the Tesla Model 3.

Further, you have prevented less well off people from being able to afford to visit locations like the Natural History Museum, as we did as a family. But the uncaring wealthy will continue to visit in their polluting vehicles.

Fail.

Fight back club: Continue to spank, and if you are arrested, explain you want your kids to be quiet, polite, respectful and hard working.

Dear Aliens,

…if you want to find out how much the tectonic plate where I reside on planet Earth is off course, watch this ‘video’ from the BBC, that blends not very clear headed females (too much weed me thinks luv?), frustratingly confusing editing with over-sized unnecessary in the first place captions that block out said video that itself features an undefined conclusion!

Ladies, I have traveled all over the world. The Paris Metro, Italian railways, London Underground, Chicago and New York ‘toobes’, buses, trains, planes too. Only time I saw women being approached in an unsolicited awkward manner was Egypt, and that was married Western women who were in our group with their husbands!

I think you will find that in the majority of cases, the people who make women uncomfortable on the UK’s public transport are the uneducated not too pleasant types those of your political persuasion are keen to let into this country for reasons only you know.

Every single guy I know has since youth to adulthood treated their girlfriends or wives decently, from the early days of dressing smart and knocking on the door at the parent’s house, to taking them out to movies, meals etc to working until 9pm (or 10pm in the case of a lawyer friend of mine in California) to ensure their family enjoyed a decent QOL.

Further, the title image shows an Orwellian fish eye CCTV camera and speaker, no doubt, suggesting that because UK society has failed to produce and/or import decent people, that we all need to be monitored, everywhere we go, and perhaps told how to behave by the state or whoever it is that monitors and controls said gadgetry.

Reap sow?

So distant beings with ages old cosmic wisdom, come help us before it’s too late!

Yours,

Earthling (For now – Elon has other plans…)

6 months?

God Bless America, where thankfully they do not put up with nasty behavior with such leniency.

The subject of this article in The Verge, that does not seem to allow comments, is evidence if any that America has given up on how to sort out it’s social problems – something I have written about many times mainly in reference to gun massacres, such as that in Las Vegas recently.

We seem to be giving up re both terror (organised, and based on group think) and loners who decide to take others down with them after living a life of frustration and therefore creating a dystopia. A world full of checks and surveillance, that makes life less convenient, more expensive and no longer based on trust.

Planners and politicians need to think about where all this is headed. What will the world be like in 2027 if we continue to deny the reasons for a lot of this horror.

Yes, it makes sense to protect embassies, that will always be the target of political attacks, but every public location too?

Scientifically speaking, these people are attention seeking selfish fraudsters wasting society’s time.

…in a situation like this, a caring compassionate human would have responded with “Oh that’s ok Sir, we’ll waive it. We are looking to improve the user experience of our over complicated parking machines so welcome any feedback.”

But today, because a whole generation of jobsworths have been bread and brainwashed (I met a very young one the other day, not much different really than you would imagine a young German Nazi to be back in WW2, heartless and robotic), we nice people who are more human than machine are becoming a rarity and subservient to their demands. (I will explain the circumstances regarding the aforementioned youth another time. I do wish I had a dashcam at the time to record the whole event.)

I read somewhere that the powers that be are waiting for us more mature common sense types to literally die off, so we no longer hold influence.

Reap sow people. You want dystopia, you’ll get it. And people wonder why some Americans want to preserve the right to carry, despite the recent attrocities. And I don’t blame them. Liberty and humanity are worth fighting for.

Fight back club: Do not comply.
