Goddesses, and other superstitious crap

By Mike Cunningham On October 30th, 2014 at 12:24 pm

I have often considered 1930’s America, and the Americans who inhabit the States which made up that Union, as, on the whole, balanced in their happy ignorance of the world outside of their continental boundaries. America, before FDR and the happy coincidence of Pearl Harbour, would rather have checked the local headlines, talked about baseball, talked about Hollywood movie stars, talked about anything which did not touch upon a World in turmoil 3,000 miles away. The opinion of Congress was to sheer away from any talk about a War raging far away, and Isolation ruled.

America has moved on from those lazy days, when no-one listened to the sirens sounding in London, because America had to, but the old ways, the old beliefs, still hold some in their grasp; as can be seen in the words of Erbin Gamurot, 48, a handyman, said Pele, the volcano goddess, just wants to visit her sister, Namakaokahai, the sea goddess. “She gotta go see her sister. She gotta go say hi. You know how family are. It’s all good,” Gamuret said.

Before I am hauled before an ATW court for summary lynching, for my use of the term ‘happy coincidence’, allow me to expand. The dead, the terrible slaughter on that sunny morning in early November 1941 was not happy, not in the slightest; but it was a fortuitous event for Great Britain, because we gained the assistance and alliance  of the greatest Democratic Nation in the world when we stood virtually alone against the Nazi hordes, intent on their domination of a supine Europe, alongside their Allies in the Empire of Japan.

 

Ah, but it was a Tradition; just a ritual!

So if this is what your ‘Friends’ do to you, God help you if your enemies turn on you!

Whatever turns you on, Bud.

The news that Secret Service agents preferred Colombian prostitutes, when visiting that cocaine-fuelled country was perhaps dismaying to some, inclusive of the agents’ families; but what is to be made of the news that the investigator, supposed to run the gruelling trail of finding out who did what to whom, with what, and of course fuelled by which; was himself caught not exactly with his pants down, but certainly with the zipper undone? He was presumably targeted because he was doing an unpopular task in an exemplary fashion, and had to be silenced.

Seems as though the rumour was that, besides commercial transactions made between the Colombian whores and the Secret Service detail, in Cartagena town themselves as part of the Obama protection detail, at least one member (if you would forgive the pun) of the White House party was also involved in, as it were, testing the ink!

So Investigator David Nieland was given the task of pushing his way through the thicket of legs, arms and other body parts, to establish who else did what, with which, and of course with whom, whilst down in Cartagena, besides members of the Secret Service.

But the best part is the shocking news that Nieland was suspended for two weeks for taking pictures of an INTERN’s FEET, and circulating them on T’Internet. Now I have heard of many disgraceful and appalling pictures of various parts of the female body, in various poses and in full colour, being sent all over the place: but FEET? Are there no ‘ends’ these investigators will not stoop to?

 

From the Swamp, to the Stars

By Mike Cunningham On October 28th, 2014 at 11:02 am

The video is twenty-nine minutes long, but every second is prime-time! Watch and listen to these words, spoken just fifty years ago yesterday, from a man who was hailed, much later in life, by an American author as ‘THE MAN WHO WON THE WAR’

Selected excerpts include these prophetic passages:-

We’re at war with the most dangerous enemy that has ever faced mankind in his long climb from the swamp to the stars. Swap the Caliphate, Muslim extremism, Islamic State and the rest of the Muslim/Mohammed crap for Soviet Russia, and those words could have been used yesterday

Senator Fullbright has said at Stanford University that the Constitution is outmoded. He referred to the President as “our moral teacher and our leader,” and he says he is “hobbled in his task by the restrictions of power imposed on him by this antiquated document.” He must “be freed,” so that he “can do for us” what he knows “is best.” Swap Lyndon Johnson for Obama, add those pernicious Executive Orders, and those words could have been used yesterday

He’ll find that they’ve also asked for the right to imprison farmers who wouldn’t keep books as prescribed by the federal government.

The latest is the Area Redevelopment Agency.  They’ve just declared Rice County, Kansas, a depressed area. Rice County, Kansas, has two hundred oil wells, and the 14,000 people there have over 30 million dollars on deposit in personal savings in their banks. And when the government tells you you’re depressed, lie down and be depressed.

We set out to help 19 countries. We’re helping 107. We’ve spent 146 billion dollars. With that money, we bought a 2 million dollar yacht for Haile Selassie. We bought dress suits for Greek undertakers, extra wives for Kenya[n] government officials. We bought a thousand TV sets for a place where they have no electricity. In the last six years, 52 nations have bought 7 billion dollars worth of our gold, and all 52 are receiving foreign aid from this country. Judge this record with, say, our own Department for International Development , with our Billions of Pounds Sterling thrown at corrupt governments everywhere, and those words swap rather easily.

Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.

Their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight or surrender. Swap America for Great Britain, and insert the words ‘Northern Ireland’, view the smirking killers IN GOVERNMENT at Stormont, and there you will see the same words, with the same result, as those prophetic words, spoken Fifty Years ago gone yesterday!

 

 

The quick, and the Dead.

If you are stupid enough, or thick enough, or indeed suicidal enough to want to ‘help’; to want to work with Ebola patients, you should realise that you are more than likely to have compromised your own safety, so isn’t it just the smart thing to do to go into quarantine until all dangers have passed? Kaci Hickox was out in the cess-pit named Sierra Leone, and was welcomed back into America by a fast ride in an isolation ambulance to a ward in a Newark hospital. But instead of being reassured that she would be monitored, and tested, and given all that American healthcare has to provide, she took out a lawsuit stating her ‘rights’ had been violated.

So, enter the two big-talking Governors Cuomo and Christie, having cemented their entirely laudable and sensible plans to segregate and quarantine ANYONE who came back from the disease-ridden slums which pass for towns in Sierra Leone; to make anyone who had actually escaped from the filth, the disease and of course, the DEAD which litter the open sewers which masquerade as streets in that god-forsaken place undergo a nominal three weeks isolation, just to ensure that they don’t have the capacity to kill thousands more. They take one look at the ‘outrage’ which erupts when the word gets out that someone is actually quarantined, and backtrack with the speed of light.

Cuomo said his decision balanced public safety with the need to avoid deterring medical professionals from volunteering in West Africa. “My No. 1 job is to protect the people of New York, and this does that,” he said. Those quarantined at home will be visited twice a day by local authorities, he said. Family members will be allowed to stay, and friends may visit with the approval of health officials.

“the need to avoid deterring medical professionals from volunteering in West Africa”  He actually said that!

So when the Ebola numbers commence rocketing upwards in New York, will Kaci realise that she was maybe wrong? I doubt it, since she will probably be dead!

 

and all done without ‘Sponsorship’

When one of the usual ‘Record-breaking’ stunts is performed these days, usually to loud applause and cries of ‘Look how brave I am’ from the breaker, usually whilst wrapped in the flags of the commercial sponsors, I tend to turn the page rather quickly. I have no time for  the thrill-seekers, the self-promotion, those amongst us who are preparing their next book which tells how they did, or usually failed, to accomplish the feat of endurance, or other foolishness, which has been the object of their self-imposed striving.

I can understand (just), the antics of a younger Branson, tearing across the Atrlantic in his kayak-on-steroids, as he was publicising his company’s name, along with his airline; which is why I both applaud and approve of the Google executive who broke the world record for altitude before freefalling and then parachuting back to a rather tame Earth from an astounding 135,890 feet in the sky.

This amazing individual  said Google had been willing to help with the project, but he declined company support, worried that his jump would become a marketing event.

Now that is what I would call a true record, and what is more, for his self-effacing and humble attitude, he should be accepted as a true model of how Englishmen used to behave, before the advent of skanks who just want to be ‘famous’ commenced their invasion of the airwaves.

Some puzzling news from former Colony

Cardinals Deactivate Jonathan Dwyer After Arrest on Assault Charges

Now this is all very interesting, but what has the hierarchy of the Catholic Church have to do with the National Football League in America?

 

 

 

 

Some really good news from Huntsville

By Mike Cunningham On September 18th, 2014 at 9:38 am

Lisa Coleman is dead.

She was legally and judicially executed on Wednesday evening at 6.24 p.m. Central time. No one knows what the substance used to kill her, was called, or its component parts, but it did the job, and she was pronounced dead twelve minutes after the lethal dose commenced.

The terrible injuries sustained by this little boy, most of which were still apparent on his tortured body, did not end his life; that trophy was accomplished by a combination of malnutrition and pneumonia. His body, which weighed about half that of a normal boy his age, had been subject to 250 separate injuries, including cigarette burns and the result of blows from a golf club.

Strangely enough, though I thoroughly approve of her execution, I totally disagree with the State of Texas in its method of judicial execution. To allow this evil woman to quietly expire over a twelve-minute period, in deep sedation and presumably with a minimum of pain; after the torture and trauma suffered by her small victim, her lover’s child and son; is just not right! I, and probably many, many others, would have thought a more appropriate punishment would have been to beat and to starve this creature, just as she did this small boy, until she suffered the same death as her small victim. But, hey, thats just a father, a grandfather and an Englishman thinking out loud.

I note that the Guardian, from which I take this report, is more concerned with the method and efficacy of the compounds used for these executions, than concern about the victims callously erased by these killers, on the grounds that Texas has continually refused to declare what the substances are, and whether they are ‘out of date’. Bit like not eating strawberries because they are ‘pas their sell-by date’, but just a bit more lethal, really.

Well done Texas, and the United States of America, for keeping up the good work, and cleansing Society of just a few of the living bacteria which really needed killing.
