Charles Durning was one of my favourite actors of all time, versatile and gregarious, able to be hilarious and terrifying (occasionally at the same time) he was in the true sense extra-ordinary. My personal favourite performance was as the main antagonist Otis P. Hazelrigg in Dark night of the Scarecrow. As a bigoted, intolerant murderous bully postman he takes a cheap made for TV movie and along with the great Larry Drake as the eponymous scarecrow, lifts it to be a horror classic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7S8o8t-aEHk

LenHazell53 comments on Jan 26, 2022:
"Is Old Music Killing New Music?" No, most new music is inferior, simplistic, mechanical and unoriginal. The new artists are products of hype not skill, experience and talent and song writers are limited by the need for lyrics to be "Unproblematic" and "appropriate" so no protest songs, no meaningful poetry and nothing that the twitterverse or China might find "offesive" It is no wonder that younger people are "discovering" classic rock, pop even disco and becoming enamored of it and then being shocked to find it is 40, 50 even 60 or more years old.

She was an evil old bat who called her clinics "Homes for the dying" because not many people came out of them alive. She believed that medicine (when not being used on her) defied the will of god. She was willing to take money from criminals, tyrants, dictators writing to buy their way in to heaven, and even called them friends. When she won her Nobel prize, her acceptance speech was not about the evils of poverty but was instead a diatribe about the "evil" of contraception which she described as worse than murder, rape and genocide.

Ending religion lessons in schools leads to overall decline in belief but not morals | Religion | ...
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 18, 2022:
Schools are supposed to impart knowledge, other than the knowledge that religion exists and did so in the past, which could be covered in the study of history and literature, there is in my opinion no place for religion in schools. Furthermore given the "bloody" history of religion the moral well being of general scholars under the age of 16 could only be improved by that omission from the basic curriculum. I am reminded of a story related by Bertrand Russell of a letter written to him by a student who requested the opinion of the noted polymath on an offer of a research fellowship the corespondent had received to study theology at Trinity college Cambridge, Rusell being an alumnus of the said college. Russell wrote back that he had no opinion on the matter whatsoever as he was not even sure that Theology was an actual academic subject, and unless the young chap was going to research that question his time would be better spent elsewhere doing literally anything else.

During one of my periods of unemployment the job centre sent me for psychometric testing to determine what career path would suit me best. The result came back informing me that I was 100% suited to being a clergyman. I pointed out that was stupid since I was an atheist, to which by career coach replied, "What has that got to do with it?" I must admit I have thought about raising money to do a religious revival touring show in the US, I'm convinced with my background in theater production I could put on a good show, but like you my conscience gets in the way.

LenHazell53 comments on Jan 17, 2022:
I suppose that if you were in a crashing plane and the captain ordered everyone to put on a parachute, there would be plenty of arse holes who would refuse because no one tells them what to do, and parachutes cause cancer or impotence and the whole plane crash story is a hoax anyway. Well fine, let them sit in their seats as the plane plunges to a firey death. Though some people might break a leg or wrist because they haven't bee trained in parachuting, chances are they won't die from doing the sensible thing and getting of the damned plane. To be honest I thought Australians had a bit more sense than this, but stupidity does not recognize borders.

Title song from the 1979 Monty Python's The Life of Brian, sung by Sonia Jones who was just 16 then.
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 16, 2022:
In the script book of the Life of Brian, which doubles as a scrap book of behind the scenes stories and trivia, Eric Idle tells the story of he and Michael Palin discussing the most inappropriate theme song for their film (Still at that time entitled "Jesus Christ Lust for Glory") and Palin drunkenly suggesting getting Tom Jones or Shirley Bassey to parody a bond theme and set about writing the lyrics. Months later when the backers of the film had pulled out George Harrison stepped and formed Handmade films to save the film any question of hiring A big name singer for the titles was lost as the budget had been cut my almost 70 percent. George however on hearing the plan remember talk of a young backing singer who did a mean Shirley Bassey impersonation and managed to track her down. This was fifteen year old Sonia Jones, who was offered standard rates to sing the theme. On hearing her performance both Idle and Harrison offered to double her fee, without knowing the other had done so, neither retracted the offer when they did find out so she was effectively paid three times and deserved every penny of it.

Not without a total paradime shift away from the social model by which the western world has been molded for thousands of years once the first city states were established a social classes or caste systems were implement as methods of control and exploitation. That is to say away from basing the worth of the individual being based upon what they have, rather than what they can contribute. A society based around productivity for the over all good rather than on profit for the elite, for a general rise in well being, rather than an aspiration for personal advancement and superiority in the pecking order. A return to a type of society practiced in tribal communities, where the members of the group all contribute a skill, talent or craft to everyone else for the common good without ambition of greed, but instead a commune based on mutual altruism. Of course today in a capitalist society, such ideas are demonised by the ruling elite who see them as a threat to their position and power as "Socialism" "Communism" and "Dangerous" because without poverty and desperation people cannot be controlled by fear.

It is a method of preventing a possible apostate and of persuading doubting investigators to go that one last step and be baptised. It begins with friend shipping, that is that the attentive missionaries who have been giving lessons introduce the investigator to an active Mormon family, one or more of whom share an interest with the investigator. There will be a period of the said family inviting the investigator to their home, and visiting him or her in their own home. This will be followed up with introductions to other members all of who will make the Investigator feel welcome and part of a community, until the at last succumb and agree to joint the church and be baptised, after which the love bombing trails off until unless there is a genuine friendship it stops all together. Single men are treated even more viciously and will be introduced to every single women in the ward or stake in search of a temple worthy priesthood holding husband, some times even to the point of marriage. Not surprising as it is an integral part of Mormon life that the only way to get in to heaven is to be married and be actively producing lots of little Mormons. Love Bombing potential apostates pretty much follows the same pattern , only with every on reminding the subject just how super dupper great it is to be one of Gods chosen. Again especially so when the apostate is married and the other partner is not sure about leaving, they will actively try and break up the marriage in order not to lose both members, and will try to marry off the remainer to another active single Mormon, or try and blackmail the leaver in to staying so that they don't also lose their spouse, home and community. It is a filthy way of behaving but that is Mormons for you.

My brother's godmother used to do things like this, she would go to the "Wimpy Bar" order herself burger sausage bender and chips and then sit it in front her kids and eat it, giving them a banana each out of her hand bag and telling them, to hide it from the staff. The first time we saw this my mother was gobsmacked and bought "Auntie Sheila"'s kids a burger each along with ours, and was told off for spoiling the children for her trouble.

Casus Belli: noun 1.
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 10, 2022:
Literally from the Latin accidents/opportunities of war, but usually taken as a portmanteau phrase with Casus being taken from a pig Latin version of the French Cas "A trial" and Belli from the Latin for war meaning "The (legal) case for the war"
I think our need to be number one has done as much damage to the American psyche as any addictive ...

The problem is not that Americans are patriotic The problem is not that Americans love their country The problem is not that Americans are proud to be Americans Those are all fine The Problems are that a significant minority Americans think every other country in the world is shit, that non American are inferior and that people who are not white are not actually human and that over 70% of the nation suffer from the Dunning Kruger effect.

The façade of democracy has been hanging by a thread for decades in many of the western powers since the 1980s. The fall of the Soviet block allowed the whole of the world to see just how corrupt a government can become and still hold on to the illusion of free and fair elections, freedom of expression and the freedom to protest while still keeping the Jack boot firmly on the jugular of the people all the while claiming it is for their own protection from "Them" Covid has been the excuse for switching freedom to, into freedom from!
