“DISCUSS THE SCIENCE”

By Pete Moore On October 13th, 2019 at 7:29 pm

Central London has resembled the zombie apocalypse all week. Yep, Extinction Rebellion is back. We used to go to Bedlam to laugh at the inmates. Now they’re stinking up the capital and the airports.

And what a bunch of child-abusing liars they are. We are told to grapple with, and accept, the science, which sounds quite an unscientific philosophy to begin with. But we can do that quickly with this bunch. They are Malthusian, ultra-left radicals. Therefore their economic science is in the bin already. The world around us is the unquestionable testament to the superiority of capitalism and markets for bolstering liberty, generating wealth, lengthening lives, raising the poor and feeding the masses. Nothing else devised by mankind can hold a candle to capitalism and markets for improving mankind’s lot.

Andrew Neil takes on XR’s science here also, in particular their warnings that billions of people will soon die if we do not submit to their wicked agenda. (The truth, of course, is that their agenda will cause mass deaths.) This was a fair fight. The lady was put up for the interview and has appeared in the media on many occasions. But you don’t come to an Andrew Neil inquisition armed only with lies.

So yes, let’s take on the radical left’s science. Anytime, anyplace.

Scientists endorse mass civil disobedience to force climate action

LONDON (Reuters) – Almost 400 scientists have endorsed a civil disobedience campaign aimed at forcing governments to take rapid action to tackle climate change, warning that failure could inflict “incalculable human suffering.”

In a joint declaration, climate scientists, physicists, biologists, engineers and others from at least 20 countries broke with the caution traditionally associated with academia to side with peaceful protesters courting arrest from Amsterdam to Melbourne.

Wearing white laboratory coats to symbolize their research credentials, a group of about 20 of the signatories gathered on Saturday to read out the text outside London’s century-old Science Museum in the city’s upmarket Kensington district.

“We believe that the continued governmental inaction over the climate and ecological crisis now justifies peaceful and non-violent protest and direct action, even if this goes beyond the bounds of the current law,” said Emily Grossman, a science broadcaster with a PhD in molecular biology. She read the declaration on behalf of the group.

“We therefore support those who are rising up peacefully against governments around the world that are failing to act proportionately to the scale of the crisis,” she said.

The declaration was coordinated by a group of scientists who support Extinction Rebellion, a civil disobedience campaign that formed in Britain a year ago and has since sparked offshoots in dozens of countries.

They are endorsing VIOLENCE no matter what their words say.

Crazy Glueing yourself to the top a Jet causes Millions of Dollars of Damage. If you scratch the skin of a Passenger Jet the minimum tab is a Million Dollars.

These cultists are giving the Green Flag to their braindead followers to go do civil disobedience…. In today’s society that is ANTIFA, rioting and destroying public and personal property.

Join our cult or burn…… Fascists no matter what they call themselves.

a lesson of life

By Patrick Van Roy On October 13th, 2019 at 4:15 pm

AAArrrrgggghhhh…….  This is to put my mind in it’s right place.

There is a prayer that we should all live by called the Serenity Prayer. Now as I would explain to many people about this prayer is it is not a prayer to God as you’d think…. A lot of people whose lives have reached the point of destruction from addiction do not believe in God.  So how do you get people into the habit of Prayer without them being hostile when they are just that hostile towards God or just don’t believe in a God.  Actually it’s very simple GOD does not stand for an all powerful being that dealt you the pain you are in. Instead GOD is acronym for Good Orderly Direction.

This prayer is the foundation of survival. The part most people knows is as follows.

 

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

The full Prayer has a second verse

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

My version that I say repeatedly all day

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Gods will not mine be done;
The past is gone and cannot be changed;
All I can do is my best to live each day in his grace.

I can’t, He can, So Let him those are the first steps to recovering from addiction. Admitting your powerless, surrendering to that fact, giving into the Guidance of others, and listening to that guidance. It’s a lot harder than you think. It takes a daily commitment to turn your will over to others, and it’s human nature to try and keep that illusion of control that we all have. The concept of Surrendering to win is an alien one, but one we have to learn.

Once an addict always an addict. If you stop using the steps in your life it becomes a mess, if you use you have 3 outcomes. Jails, Institutions, or Death. Very few people make it. 8 out of a 100 people recover the other 92 don’t. Out of those 8 if they make it to their 5th year of recovery they drift out of the rooms of NA and AA. Some no longer feel they need it. others can’t handle the nonsense that comes with a room full of fresh people adjusting to life without their drug of choice and Alcohol is a drug. After the first 5 years you hit a plateau. You know how to live without your poison of choice.   At this point the real work begins.

Addiction is Mental Disease, it is the physical embodiment of Despair. Each person’s despair is their own. If you don’t deal with the underlying issue that caused that despair you will use again…. if you think because you made it this far that you are safe you will fall, it happens to many, but half manage to make it without falling back into addiction the other half relapse some make it back out while others don’t. Usually if you make it past ten years you’re not safe, but you’ve mastered the tools to not fall.

Once you allowed your despair to make you an addict you’ve been scarred for life. There is a part of your brain that’s wired for it now, and if it gets activated you will use and the result is Jails Institutions or Death. My friend after 27 years forgot this and died.

The details of his death are grizzly, I won’t go into them. His despair was brought on by cheating on his wife, and rather than talking about it he used and died.

No matter if you’re an addict or not…. If you’re in pain I implore you talk to someone. We are all our own worst counsel.

I think the following song fits as a reminder that no matter what you think what we are living now are the good old days.

This song is known by everybody in addiction….. The Addict theme song

ATW OPEN THREAD

By Pete Moore On October 12th, 2019 at 7:24 pm

Busy times here in Wessex. A lot of cooking has been done, the fridge-freezer is groaning and all is good. Tonight is Vetrnætr according to the pagan Norse calendar. It translates as Winter Nights. They only recognised summer and winter, so tonight was a herald of the dark times to come. The colours have turned out there. Autumn is the most beautiful season. Have yourselves an Open Thread then. This one is decorated with a Welsh tearoom which looks the part.

A new late-night comedy-variety show, ‘NBC’s Saturday Night,’ premieres with guest host George Carlin. The scrappy 90-minute program is launched to replace re-runs of ‘The Tonight Show’ and proves to have more than a little staying power. Two years later it’ll be renamed ‘Saturday Night Live.’

Everbody Plays The Fool

By Mahons On October 11th, 2019 at 7:28 pm

Rudy Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York and personal attorney to the President, had lunch yesterday with two fellows who happened to have one way tickets out of the country and who were later arrested and each held on $1 million bail each. The arrests were the result on an investigation by the US Attorney for the Southern District, a Trump appointee. Ironically, Giuliani used to hold that very title.

It is reported that both men were involved in a conspiracy to funnel foreign money into US elections, both helped him on Ukraine and both have been charged with campaign finance violations. Both gentlemen are US Citizens born in former Soviet republics. President Trump said he didnt know them, although both allegedly had dinner with him at the White House last year.
I’m sure it is nothing.

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On October 11th, 2019 at 7:03 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night

Something brand new this evening. I rarely post new music for two reasons. One, because I don’t seek out new music and two, because everything knows that old music is better than new music anyway. Them’s the facts.

But I quite like the Stereos. Who knew that the Welsh could play instruments?! They’re not just swarthy tenors over there after all. And I like this new one from them. So have at it. We’ll be back to old stuff soon enough, and boy do I have some absolute bangers to play.

Have fun whatever you’re up to this weekend. The Jocks are desperately hoping it will involve watching their boys play Japan. So am I really. I never thought I’d so look forward to watching those two play each other. Damn you Typhoon Haggis.

As always, feel free to share your top sounds down below –

GRETA WILL BE FUMING

The 2019 Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed who made peace last year with bitter foe Eritrea.

He was awarded the prize for his efforts to “achieve peace and international cooperation”.

Mr Abiy’s peace deal with Eritrea ended a 20-year military stalemate following their 1998-2000 border war.

He was named as the winner of the 100th Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, where he will receive the award in December.

Abiy Ahmed spent his teenage years shooting Marxist-Leninists. A man should receive all the honours for that alone, but he has also liberalised Ethiopa after socialism wrecked the gaff.

It’s good to see that in denying the abused Swedish girl the Nobel prize he’s still beating Marxist-Leninists.

SOMEONE’S BLINKING

EU countries have agreed to “intensify” Brexit talks with the UK over the next few days.

The development comes after a meeting in Brussels between Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay and EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier, described by both sides as “constructive”.

One of the Irelands is going to get it prison style if there’s a deal. The DUP should be worried, because the Tories are batting for them, and Dublin should be worried because they have the EU in their corner. You can’t think of more dishonest, treacherous friends in either case.

But at least we’ve learned that the withdrawal agreement, which the EU would never, ever re-open has been re-opened. Anyone who has ever bought a car or a house knows that you never deny yourself the right to walk away.
