  2. An Aussie and a Maori walk into a bakery. The Aussie steals three pastries and slips them into his pocket. He turns to the Maori and says "pretty slick aye bro, the owner didn't even see me". Unimpressed the Maori replies "typical dishonest Aussie, bro I’m gonna show you the honest way and still get the same result". The Maori calls out to the owner of the shop and says "bro I want to show you a magic trick" intrigued the owner obliges. The Maori asked him for a pastry and he eats it. He asks for another and eats that to. And the another which he eats also. By now the owner says "c'mon mate where's the magic trick?" The Maori points to the Aussie & replies “now check his pockets".

  7. I had dinner with some people who hail from middle eastern parts yesterday, and they were as shocked as the rest of us are. These folk are such kind people, that they volunteer at the local community centre, to help in any way that they can. The father is taking weekly bible classes, because his intellectual curiosity is piqued and he wants to learn about Christianity so that he understands it better. They describe themselves as modern Muslims, their daughter is a doctor and a friend.

  8. Coss Seems to slight confusion on how we both define "Social Welfare" but I will give you my definition based on the UK model which I happen to be au fait with. Whilst Health, Education, Pensions and Defense etc come from UK Central Government Expenditure they are not what are defined as "Social Welfare" or "Benefits. These include, but are not limited to, Tax Credit, Housing Benefit, Child Benefit, Disability Living Allowance, Income Support, Incapacity Benefit, Job Seekers Allowance, Council Tax Benefit, Unemployment Benefit and so on, there are approximately over 60 different benefits which can be claimed, and the benefits scroungers know them the best. There are people in the UK who have never done a days work in their life, never paid into the system yet are taking from it. Millions of Immigrants flocking to the UK being given Social Housing and many of the 60 odd benefits I have mentioned, Like WTF is all that about, and you wonder why I got pissed with my, the Tax Payers. money being squandered by successive governments , hence the reason why I packed my bags and fucked off.

  9. "is there will always be people who take the piss out of the system" Yes and sometimes the cost of those people is worth bearing, for the good of the whole. A year and some months ago, I had a stroke. Because we have an efficient Ambulance system, I got not one, but two rides to two different hospitals in very quick time, straight into the operating room and they pulled the clot. Kept me in over night, I reckon I'm 98~99% back to normal. Slightly better than normal as I've taken up Kayak fishing as a health kick and I eat a lot of primo fish and I am fitter as a result. All of this without regard to my financial circumstances or whether or not I am taking the piss... I am alive and grateful. Looking after yer peasants is not always a bad thing, indeed if you don't look after yer peasants, you'll be lynched eventually.

  10. Michael O’Leary, Chief Executive of Ryanair after arriving in a hotel in Manchester went to the bar and asked for a pint of Guinness. The barman said, "That will be £1 please, Mr. O’Leary." Taken aback, O'Leary replied, "That's very cheap," and handed over his money. "We do try to stay ahead of the competition", said the barman. "We have the cheapest beer in England". "That is remarkable value", Michael comments. "I see you don't have a glass, you'll need one of ours. That will be £3 please." O'Leary scowled, but paid up. He took his drink and walked towards a seat. "Ah, you want to sit down?" said the barman. "That'll be an extra £2. If you'd pre-booked it would have cost £1." O'Leary swore to himself, but paid up. "I see you've brought your laptop" added the barman. "That wasn't pre-booked either, that's another £3." O'Leary was so incensed and his face was red with rage. "I've had enough! I insist on speaking to a manager!" "Here is his e-mail address, or if you wish, you can contact him between 9.00 am and 9.01am every morning, Monday to Tuesday. Calls are free, unless answered, then there is a charge of only £1 per second". "I will never use this bar again". "OK but do remember, we are the only hotel in England selling pints for £1."

  14. When I was at school we were given the Polio vaccine on a sugar cube (no not Bork), later we had the TB vaccine, a passage of rites, one had the same scar on the shoulder as your father, if you like your first tattoo (not that I have inkings) The number of times I fell of my bike, fell on broken glass, got bitten by neighbors dog etc and ent to the local infirmary for a tetanus jab, it was just all part and parcel of life and growing. As I got older and traveling overseas for work I have had, Yellow Fever, Cholera, Typhoid, Hepatitis, Rabies and Anthrax vaccinations to name a few. I never complained it was being forced on me, it was simple no vaccination, not allowed into foreign country, Covid Passport is nothing new, I have had a vaccination passport for over 30 years, it just seemed normal. And to hear todays anti-vaxxers whining and winging about civil liberties and against their will, Pathetic.

  21. Well, the Dems have a problem. Biden made it to First Place in the primaries. Bernie Sanders came in second, very close on his heels. Everyone else, including Kamala "Heels Up" Harris and Elizabeth "Fauxcahontas" Warren, was way back in the back of the pack. Bernie Sanders is not electable. Too many people know what he really is, and what he would mean in the White House, and, while they might be Democrats, and stupid, they aren't suicidal. If the Dems hadn't nominated Sleepy Joe, they would have had a HUGE fight on their hands from the Bernie camp. This would have eliminated their chances of defeating Trump. Their strategy appears to be to run Biden, beat Trump, inaugurate Biden, and then, the moment he has been sworn in, remove him via the 25th Amendment. That puts Kamel-Toe Harris in the Oval Office, and she is then free to name Bernie Sanders as her Veep, and we the people are fxxked. (Not even Kamel-Toe is stupid enough to name Hillary as Veep; she may be stupid, but she does not have THAT big a death wish.)

  22. One of the founders of The Lincoln Project, the group of Republicans who fight against tRump making a mockery of what their party stands for. I've always said, Republicans are far better at politics than the Democrats because they have to be. If everyone voted, Republicans would lose the White House, the House of Representatives every single time and would barely avoid a super majority of the Senate. So, they have to be better for their own survival and they are great at it. That's why The Lincoln Project are far better at going after Trump than the Democrats. Far, far better. They know how to find dirty, get to your inner voice and crush it. Donald Trump came for Steve Schmidt (founder of Lincoln Project) on Twitter this morning. It did not go well. This is Steve’s reply: "You’ve never beaten me at anything. This is our first dance. Did you like, Covita? We are so much better at this than your team of crooks, wife beaters, degenerates, weirdos and losers. You are losing. We heard you loved Evita. You saw it so many times. Where will you live out your years in disgrace? Will you buy Jeffrey Epstein’s island? One last extra special deal from him? Or will you be drooling on yourself in a suite at Walter Reed? Maybe you will be in prison? I bet you fear that. The Manhattan District Attorney may not be around to cover for you or your crooked kids anymore. Eliza Orlins doesn’t believe in different sets of rules for the Trumps. What about the State Attorney General? You know what you’ve done. Oh, Donald. Who do you owe almost $500 million in personally guaranteed loans to? It's all coming down. You think you and your disgusting family are going to be in deal-flow next year? Are you really that delusional? You are lucky Chris Wallace interrupted you after Joe Biden said you weren’t smart. You started to melt down. That’s the place that hurts the most. Right? Fred Sr., knew it. You’ve spent your whole life proving it. You aren’t very smart. You couldn’t take the SAT on your own. What was the real score? 970? We both know you know. Are the steroids wearing off? Is the euphoria fading? Do you feel foggy? Tired? Do you ache? How is the breathing? Hmmm. Are you watching TV today? We will have some nice surprises for you. Everyone is laughing at you. You are a joke. A splendid moron turned deadly clown. Did you watch Martha McSally in her debate against American hero, fighter pilot, test pilot, astronaut Capt. Mark Kelly? She is so embarrassed by you. She is ashamed and full of self-loathing for the choice she made in following you over the cliff. She is in free fall now. She will lose, like most of them, because of you. We hear from the White House and the campaign everyday. They are betraying you. They are looking to get out alive and salvage careers and their names. It’s Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner vs. Donald Trump Jr., and Kimberly Guilfoyle on the inside. They are at war over scraps and who gets to command what will be the remnants of your rancid cult. It’s almost over now. You are the greatest failure in American history. You are the worst president in American history. Disgrace will always precede your name. Your grandchildren and great-grandchildren will grow up ashamed of their names. One day, I suppose there will be some small and not-much-visited library that bears your name. It will be the type of place where a drunk walks by, staring at the wall for a minute, before deciding it is beneath his dignity to piss on. That’s what is waiting for you. Joe Biden is a better man. He’s smarter. He’s winning. Do you remember when you didn’t want to name Donald Trump Jr., Donald because you were worried about him being a loser named Donald? You were right about that. He is. But it is you who will be remembered as America’s greatest loser. You will be crushed in the election. Shhhhhhhh." 11

  24. His hard core support won't change. They don't care. He is feeding their xenophobic and bigoted fears and give them the comfort they will not lose their status in America. That's all that matters. He can raise their taxes, take their healthcare, do whatever the hell he wants, fuck little girls, fuck his daughter, shoot a man on fifth avenue, be extorted by Russia or China, help kill 200,000 in a pandemic, it all doesn't matter, as long as he maintains that. It also exposes the christian right wing evangelicals as well. They were never christians. I truly believe that. I don't consider them christians. Modern day pharisees who put power, access to presidents, bigotry, and use religion as a convenient cover to do it. They have been on the wrong side of EVERY socially just movement in America. Every single one. Southern and midwest evangelicals were for slavery, for the south in the civil war, for Jim Crow and segregation, against the women's right to vote in 1919, against the civil rights movement, against the women's right movement in the '70s, against gay marriage, for both wars in the middle east. They haven't been on the right side of anything because they are not christian. One has to wonder why more evangelicals support tRump than any other president prior. Bush is a born again Christian, so is Obama, but more came out for tRump. Imagine that. There were evangelicals who passed on Bush and Obama, one of their own but came out to support tRump over even Bush? Wonder what made them support tRump over a born again, evangelical, one of their own? These are the same people who said Clinton was unfit for getting his dick sucked but tRump is okay for getting his dick sucked by a porn star. These are the same people who have viewed Mormonism as a non Christian religion historically but backed a Mormon (Romney) over a born again Christian (Obama) even though they have always said a Christian should always vote for their own. And when asked if Obama is a Christian, one of them says "he says he is'. The good thing about the last 4 years is it exposes Republicans are more full of shit than the Democrats and that takes some doing because the Dems are spineless posers. It tells is that the Republican party are far, far more dangerous than the Dems because they have shown they literally have no line. They literally will do anything. The Dems have a line. Its fairly low but there are some things they simply won't do. If someone can tell me what the Republicans will not do, I'd love to hear reasoned (you gotta say reasoned and logical or its just lies and deflective bullshit) evidence otherwise. The Republicans scare the living shit out of me. Until tRump I never, ever thought Americans would back someone who not only lacks any competence for the office but could and may be compromised b a foreign power. They will back treason. All that flag waving is bullshit. I would be saying the same if it were the Democrats. They are full of the usual political bullshit both parties do: undue influence by companies, rich individuals, not carrying out campaign promises. Not good but its the norm. This shit though? This is nation ending type of shit. It's now solid proof to the world and specifically our enemies we have completely lost the plot. We have lost every ally save Israel and the reason for tRumps popularity is totally self serving. They are the only one we have maintained and it isn't even for honorable reasons. No one trusts us nor should they. There may be one thing that will scare me as much or possibly more than the Republicans of today. And that is they will push the envelope so far they make the left feel the current Dems are no longer legitimate and the far, fringe left comes to power. Then we will see some scary shit. And it will be the Republicans of today's fault.

  26. No one has ever confirmed the JFK planned that. But no, there was no such executive order. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_executive_actions_by_John_F._Kennedy I think I'd put Afghanistan ahead of the VN War as the biggest mistake. Just what the hell are we doing there, if not defending the opium fields, the way the conspiracy folks insist? US troops have been there 19 years, FFS! The Brits tried in Afghanistan - and failed. Russia tried in Afghanistan - and failed. And the US? I don't know one Soldier or Marine who has been there and doesn't think we should get out. They all tell me that as soon as we leave, the Taliban will take over again. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-47391821 As to the US participation in the VN War achieving nothing, one can make a good case that if it hadn't done so, the communists would have conquered Thailand as well. I remember when when the Thai military was engaged with communist ":insurgents" at Khao Kor and other places. Malaysia was also very worried and openly supported South VIetnam. When the communists ruled Laos and Cambodia, the domestic communists would have been a serious threat. Thailand had a military government at the time, which was not necessarily very popular outside of Bangkok. Yes, the Thais were overall contented with their government, but so were most South Vietnamese with theirs. The communists didn't care in either country. They wanted power. In the 1970s my university students were donating blood and contributing money to help the Thai soldiers fighting against the communists at Khao Kor, while the commies had support from Hanoi and Beijing. NVA soldiers had been killed on several occasions inside of Thailand. http://outbackthailand.com/khao-kho-thailands-forgotten-war/ https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/DOC_0000012498.pdf p.s. In the 1970s I had a nodding acquaintanceship with the Thai commander at Khao Kor, while today I know several Thai ex-communists. They've said to me, "I made a mistake."

CS, I have high praise for the Keto diet. Big part of Keto is to cut out all sugar and reduce carbs, Don't eat anything after 3pm, one meal a day is good. You can form a Keto diet around your life style and needs.

  32. A few things. Trump held up money, he was not legally allowed to do (it was authorized by Congress) to basically extort Ukraine. The context of the call, covering up the phone call moving it to the server, etc, I think negates that comment. There is a process for investigating the Bidens. Obama didn't call up Putin to ask him specific questions about them interferring in the electtion etc. He let the process happen. Trump used his own private attorney in the process. This stinks. Trump evaded the legal and agreed upon process and the fact it was a direct political rival makes it stink to high heaven if we are using the subjective 'sniff test'. Had Obama done anything like this, this guy would not have reacted like that. Also, the call was reported internally in the administration, by Trump's own party before a Democrat even saw it. It was of enough concern to LEGAL experts on such things within the administration to okay it to ultimately go to Congress. Impeachment is a political process and this act Trump is certainly well within that scope. I personally don't see any nuanced view about it.

  33. The banks and businesses might be Chinese but the automatic barriers of the MTR seem a bit of a stretch. I was in HK last week, some signs that "things" have happened there but at least during the week it all seems normal and peaceful enough. Lots of the MTR barriers have their LCD screens smashed. Octopus cards still work but you can't check your balance so easily. A number of the subway advertisement hoardings are covered now due to damage, same with some outside ATM's. All have signs saying they are damaged and out of service as a result of vandalism. I was staying close to the Jordan MTR station on Nathan Road and traveling the MTR to Tung Chung near the airport every day. All very normal and typical HK. Airport was a bit different. Only passengers now allowed access to the departure and arrival areas. All the shops in T2 are closed. Airport quiet and easy to pass through, no immigration queues. Hotel room rates a bargain. Great time to visit but maybe stick to weekdays for now.

One night some dastardly person snuck into the yard, after consuming alcohol, and the dog disappeared. Only a coincidence that my friend in the next town over received a very nice dog the next day which has been treated as part of the family since.

  35. However soon then forget... FK'S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60's when DeGaulle decided to pull out of NATO. DeGaulle said he wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible. Rusk responded, "Does that include those who are buried here?" DeGaulle did not respond. You could have heard a pin drop... When in England, at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of 'empire building' by George Bush. He answered by saying, "Over the years, the United States has sent many of Its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for In return is enough to bury those that did not return." You could have heard a pin drop... There was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American. During a break, One of the French engineers came back into the room saying, "Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intend to do, bomb them?" A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly: "Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck. We have eleven such ships. How many does France have?" You Could have heard a pin drop... A U.S. Navy admiral was attending a naval conference that included admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French navies at a cocktail reception. He found himself standing with a large group of officers that included personnel from most of those countries. Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks when a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, "Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?" Without hesitating, the American admiral replied, "Maybe it's because the Brit's, Canadians, Aussie's and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German." You could have heard a pin drop... AND THIS STORY FITS RIGHT IN WITH THE ABOVE... Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane. At French customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on. "You have been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked sarcastically. Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously. "Then you should know enough to have your passport ready." The American said, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it." "Impossible. Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in France !" The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained, ''Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find a single Frenchmen to show a passport to." You could have heard a pin drop...
