[jta.org] Federal prosecutors to seek death penalty for Pittsburgh synagogue shooter. Do you ...
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 28, 2019:
Some here may recall the famous case of Doctor Hawley Harvey Crippen, executed in 1910 for the murder of his wife in cold blood. His name is still a synonym for murderer, though he insisted to the moment he was dropped and hanged by the neck that he was innocent. The two years ago three pieces of evidence came to light 1) a letter written by Mrs Crippen from the USA to then home secretary Winston Churchill proclaiming she was alive and well and living in Wisconsin. The letter was apparently misplaced by Churchill and was uncovered during research for a new biography in his collected papers. 2) The blood stain found on a mattress found in Cripin's basement was from a man 3) Mrs Crippen's death certificate under her new married name was found in Wisconsin dated many years after the unfortunate doctors execution. decedents of the Crippen family are still fighting for a posthumous pardon for their ancestor, however until such time as one is granted in the eyes of history and the law the interred remains of an innocent man remain in unhallowed ground and the man himself is still a convicted murderer with no right of appeal, because of course he is dead, a life cut short in punishment for a crime he definitely did not commit. This is why no matter how "Obvious" it is that some one is guilty of a crime state sanctioned execution is never a suitable punishment, as it is neither a punishment nor is it Justice, it is a public act revenge.

LenHazell53 comments on Aug 28, 2019:
The whole point of the word literally, in such a context is to differentiate the sentence from metaphor, and figurative descriptions. It was and is not an emphasis but has been accepted as such through no other reason but ignorance and the attempts of the largely illiterate to sound educated without actually bothering to understand what they are saying. "*I* Know what *I* mean" is a pointless protestation if no one else has a clue, or because of your word choice believe "you" to mean something entirely different.

According to the late great Sir Terry Pratchett, such words all originate via race memory from the fear instilled in all the people of Eastern Europe by the spooky and dangerous palace known only as "Yonder Castle", (after the infamous baby eating Barron Yonder) as in such famous phrases as **"I would not visit *Yonder Castle,* were I you!"** Such admonitions usually accompanied by a clap of psycho reactive thunder and the whinny of distant horses.

We must teach our children to be kind and to warn them that if you punch a bully in the face he or she will likely come back with a gang and put you in hospital. Bullies are a social problem that society must take seriously and deal within early life and stop promoting violence in the home as a good thing. Oh and also NOT all bullies are boys or men women have and are bullies too. We must teach our sons and daughters to prefer peace, war is not exciting or easy or something to be glorified or wished for in oder to make armaments profits. Teach this to all people and deal with those deranged enough to think otherwise BEFORE they become a problem. The enemy of violence is not more violence it is education. There is still darkness in this world true but the answer of to darkness is not to cover it in another layer of gun and bomb smoke. offense being the best defense is a dangerous myth. You teach the coming generations to see the value in peace, and mutual cooperation. The responsibility to raise intelligent and compassionate people lays with the parent or parents of all people as members of a justly governed society that values people more than profits.

The kick back ultimately lead to the Express changing hands from notorious Porn Barron Richard Desmond two year later and becoming a part of the Trinity Group. The Express is a notoriously bigoted and ultra right wing rag that sells mainly on four variations of panic stirring headlines they are in order of popularity Princess Dianna would have saved the country if she had not been murdered, falling house prices will bankrupt everyone, immigration is out of control and A.I.D. S. is going to kill us all. British comedian Russell Howard once stated the ideal Express headline is "foreigners carry an new form of AIDS that lowers house prices and murdered Princess Dianna."

There is no one tone of black skin, just as there is no single skin tone for any ethnicity and thus yes a black person can get a tan and might well enjoy being complimented if the intent is complimentary rather than mockery. My school friend Courtney came from St. Vincent and was very dark skinned but his older sister who was his guardian had a different father who was white and thus had far less melanin but was still obviously west Indian, during the summer she would sun bathe and her skin would darken just like anyone else, and never took it as an insult to be complimented on her noticeable suntan (she was a very attractive woman and was admired by most of Courtney's friends so got plenty of compliments anyway, well it was the seventies).

LenHazell53 comments on Aug 20, 2019:
This is odd, the "incident" apparently happened November 2018, came to the school authorities notice in March of this year and is being reported today. Every report I can find quotes it's source as The Daily Beast, it appears to have been reported nowhere else independently. The song is not named but is said to be by "Herms Niel" which is not a real name it is the nick name of Ferdinand Friedrich Hermann Nielebock who wrote military music in both wars and in all fairness Neileblock was after 1934 a card carrying Nazi, but most of his music was instrumental with one exception "Das Engellandlied" (song of the Angels) written and published in 1939 with lyrics by Hermann Löns a poet killed in WW one so most definitely not a Nazi. However since the music in the video cuts off after three notes it is impossible to say what they were singing. If this was a school awards ceremony why was it not dealt with at the time, the video does not appear to be taking place in a school, it is a smallish social room somewhere. I just have a feeling that though highly distasteful, this behaviour maybe a part of a larger story, or a much lesser one, designed to garner attention and it is not really covert filming it is all very staged. It will be interesting to see how it develops

What's the biggest red flag when meeting new people?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 18, 2019:
Human animals are naturally predatory, self serving and territorial. They can be altruistic and compassionate, but only when it serves an end that will benefit them too. Your casual friends should be those who are friendly to you, not those to whom you are friendly as that will inevitably open you up to being exploited. Your only **true friends** should be those with whom a cautious mutually none reliant, with no expectations on either side, relationship has developed over an extended period of time and where the only benefit derived on either side is the pleasure of one another's company. Human emotional bonds are easy to make, easier to exploit and broken for passion and gain easier than a gluten free pie crust. Socially make sure the new people were introduced to you by some one you already trust and if they start asking questions about you or appear to be pumping you for even innocuous information, change the subject. If this means they make an excuse and leave they were after something and have discounted you as a mark. At work keep things purely professional when meeting some one, don't make friends out of workmates, work environments are not meant to be conducive to equality but to competition over familiar work mates are sizing you up and they will step on you and over you or find away to stop you advancing past them. At work you should be admired by those below you, relied upon by those above you and an open ear to both, while being an open mouth to neither. Experience has taught me that it is okay to like some one, be civil with anyone, but never ever trust anyone until you have known them, experienced their highs and lows and have never been betrayed by them for at least five years. a good rule of thumb is Are their lips moving? Yes? Then they are probably lying to you. **He who is not one up on everyone else is invariably one down, it is the purpose of the art of lifemanship to *always* be oneup on everyone else.** ***Stephen Potter 1950***

Heil Honey I'm Home: The Nazi-Themed Sitcom Canceled After One Episode | Mental Floss
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 17, 2019:
"Heil Honey I'm Home" constantly dragged out and paraded as the worst sitcom ever made. The reality is even more odd, eight episodes were commissioned and two were made (The pilot, and Hitler in the closet) only one was ever broadcast, by the short lived satellite channel "British satellite Broadcasting" helmed by media mogul and crook Robert Maxwell. The communion was for a pilot for the most bad taste American sitcom ever set in Nazi Germany. In that it succeeded BSB had a number of dubious practices and one was to measure complaints. During a doctor who marathon they screen two episodes of the first doctor story "The Edge of Destruction" in the wrong order and measured the complaints. Like wise Heil Honey was broadcast under a wave of publicity as the lost episodes of a 1960s forgotten classic by a forgotten genius with warnings of political incorrectness. For myself the obvious give away was having "Guest star" Patrick Cargill as Chamberlain (who had the sense to retire and then die shorty after filming this) for though he was popular in the late 60's and 70's (Father Dear Father etc) he was obviously very old by the 1990 broadcast date. The huge furor that ensued even though BSB was a small channel that was very new proved to BSB that the launch and the push to have people buy "Squariels" the receiver system needed to get BSB had essentially been a flop as their actual "viewer" complaints had been very few and most of the anger was coming days later from people who watched the show on bootleg VHS copies. Even today most people like "Brad, the cinema snob Jones" can only get their hands on such copies as can be seen from the quality. BSB merged with Sky only a few weeks later and some believe the losses incurred were what contributed to the disappearance and death of Maxwell less than a year later. In short "Heil Honey I'm Home" was a joke and a publicity stunt meant to illicit complaints that backfired spectacularly by people unable to recognize it for what it was

Funny, but in truth Keith Moon of The Who did one night in a famous club, drunkenly once try to get Paul McCartney to fire Ringo and hire him instead, McCartney mistakenly thought Moon's demand to join him was an attempted to wrangle an invitation to dinner until Roger Daltry came across the club and demanded to know why he was trying to poach their drummer.

That being the case, surely the separation of church and state should demand that Faith-Based Federal Contractors be discriminated against?

LenHazell53 comments on Aug 16, 2019:
That is the Oxford dictionary definition, however it is a little outdated, as today Platitude is more a derogatory term for a meaningless cliche or phrase used to placated or draw an stop to an argument or discussion without actually achieving anything. A great example being that revolting perennial favorite **"Sending thoughts and prayers"**

Oddly there is and English word Mara pronounced almost the same way that is the root of the word Nightmare, Mara's are demons that cause bad dreams and lucid dreams perhaps this is one of those terms that it is believed may have come from a primordial language. Another is Milk that seems to have found its way in to most languages in one form or another from the ancient Suma Malaik (eg. milk, lait, leche,Lac, liete, maziwa, Mëllech,Mælk,Moloko,Miliki,Miraka,milkh) in every unrelated language from Mawrie to Hebrew to Swahili and of course English

Chinese Cartoonist, Collaborator Arrested for Unpatriotic Comics
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 16, 2019:
It seems the arrest is more to do with the anti jingri laws than the cartoon specifically, and to be fair similar laws exist in Europe for holocaust deniers and Nazi glorification. There is a LONG history of hatred between the Japanese and the Chinese especially during the 20th century. However though arresting a satirist is not on, nevertheless her activities seem not aimed at social change but at simple mockery and public outrage in which case she *may* have been better advised to have stayed in Japan.

I know what you mean and agree I attended University in the North of England (University of Teesside) and loved it, my son followed me to my Alma Mater and stayed to take his masters. My Aunt and my late writing partner both attended Durham to do their post grad work and both wished they had stayed at Teesside.
