  1. Ah yes, but which society? that of the people who are profiting from the Cobalt, or you and me?
  2. What I was focussing on, was your assertion that all the fellow Africans had to do was "sell" the unfortunates into slavery. What you then quote, from your linked content is that it was, "Africans themselves who were enslaving their fellow Africans" i.e whacking them over the head, with a club, chaining them and then sending them, to be sold. Which supports my view that it wasn't just an economic transaction, it was capture and chaining... thanks and "Time you got up to date, even CNN reported on this 25 years ago!" If I ask you for proof, you attack me
  3. this is important stuff IMHO: Sahara - yes wot you said - but more expansively, think terra forming, the reason the Amazon is not a desert, is that they have not cut down all the trees yet. All the water in the Amazon, does not come from a well, it comes mainly from the presence of trees. Africa - we are just coming to widely see, that the depletion of one species or a group of species, as a class, in terms of environmental niches, does mean unintended consequences, including destruction of ecosystems. I could give several examples of this on my doorstep and the Sahara and the middl
  4. One of the excellent wits, who is a member of this board, must have gained my board email in the past. And a year or so ago, signed me up to a left leaning email list from yokel land. I of course, consigned it's offerings to my Junk mail filters. Recently I was assessing my junk mail, as I occasionally do to see if there's anything that should not be there. And I found this: (this is an image so that none of the tracking links will work) The reason I post this, is that it is an indication, that despite appearances, Trump, and opposition to Trump, is not finish
  5. Proof? Whilst this possibly may have happened, in isolated instances, It is generally accepted that enforced slavery, i.e. capture and chaining; was the predominate method of gaining slaves, not just in the African arena, but throughout time.
  6. Contact her on her on her InyaFaceYouTwit, she'll prolly fly to see you, for the price of an airfare. When she gets out of Jail.
  7. I have almost never, approved of or liked anything to do with with Egypt. All my interactions with people from there, have been unfortunate. Mostly I have regarded Egypt and it's denizens, with a live and let live, attitude. Now, after multiple removals of cancerous bits and bobs and approaching the retirement, of a cast off man, I have found something on the Extravaganza-Web, that I endorse. It is because, most women in Egypt look like this: That I find "influencers" that, with the aid of white makeup, say they look like this: to be a reprehensible, m
  8. In a press release, the Tourism Authority of Thailand recently sought to lay out and clarify guidelines for how Thailand’s reopening will begin. The Phuket Sandbox plan rolls out first on July 1 (awaiting final approval), followed by a proposal for Surat Thani province reopening Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, and Koh Tao on a sealed route July 15. Here are the current guidelines of what travellers need to do before travelling, how arriving will work, ... at the LINK _____ And if the huge list of requirements at the link, is acceptable to travellers wanting to holiday on the beaches o

    The Covid-19 thread

    Bolsonaro's rule is 'worse threat than coronavirus,' say Brazilians as nation passes 500,000 deaths https://edition.cnn.com/2021/06/19/americas/brazil-covid-deaths-intl-cmd/index.html excerpt: Bolsonaro has repeatedly downplayed the gravity of the pandemic, calling Covid-19 a "little flu." In addition, since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the global pandemic, he has participated in at least 84 mass gatherings, according to a survey by the Brazilian newspaper O Globo... ...A study published in Lancet Journal by Hallal and his team at the beginning of the y
  10. This reminds me of something I was told once... In NZ we had a National Rail service, it was big, inefficient, over staffed and loss making. So they sold it to private business. Mass layoffs ensued. Over recent times the government has had to buy back parts of it, when "business' walked away. Great money making model for the business men. But here's the important bit. Before: there was a large work force, who had jobs, were more or less, doing something, maybe not efficiently, but something, they had families, mortgages and spent money and most importantly they had self esteem.
  11. Steve, yes to most of what you say, but from my point of view, business as usual. The rest of the world is breathing a sigh of relief, that your lot, is back to normal, I agree about Junteenth, 1/6 &c. What consumes my days at the moment, is awaiting news, of the travails and misfortunes that are queueing up, to befall the descendants of Friedrich Drumpf, orig. of Germany. And another more philosophical question, on the tangent of "Truth will out" - If there is a piss tape, why has it remained undistributed? I ponder the following: It is not actually a piss tape, but so

    The Covid-19 thread

    This is of concern, as MLG has several family members all vacc'd up, with the Chinese Sinovac. On the other hand, it was Indonesia, that was subject to a not insignificant, "collect/wash/dry/re-use" Covid swab scandal recently, so I would not be surprised if the doctors were injected, with small vials of something with Chinese writing on the label, as against a real Covid vaccine...
  13. I just found out that my 88 yr old Dad had his first of two jabs, when asked of any effects, he said no, no death, no aliens, no mutant children, nothing... so we're safe Cav.
