A core tenant of fascism, to instill a nostalgic longing for a national "golden era" that never actually existed. A prime example being the "wild west" era as depicted in "Weste'n" movies of the USA "When men were men, women were grateful and sheep were nervous"

Sounds about the same level of good taste as Jerry Lewis's epic "The Day the Clown Cried" a 1972 film about a Jewish clown who acted as a Judas goat to have children in the concentration camps follow him in to the gas chambers. The film was supressed for many years but has since 2015 been available to watch in an edited form at the library of congress. However from 2024 the complete film will be available to view, after a protracted copy right case was finally resolved.
Absolute hypocrisy?

Ah yes general Pinochet, Lovable terrorist, war criminal, genocidal maniac He who to the eternal shame of all English people was given safe harbour in the UK by the late and unlamented turd in knickers Margaret Thatcher, who described him as "A hero of democracy" and "A dear old friend and Ally" and had her own doctor certify him as unfit to stand trial in Spain for crimes against humanity, before she smuggled him out of the country back to Chile where he miraculously recovered from vascular dementia. Until that is until 2002 when he was due to stand trial again for instigating and ordering the deaths of 75 political opponents in the so called "Caravan of Death" atrocity. On 25 November 2006 his 91st birthday, having again undergone yet another miraculous recovery from terminal vascular dementia Augusto José Ramón Pinochet Ugarte, emeritus general and emeritus Senator, Issued a statement declaring how proud he was of ALL he had done, how he regretted nothing and how grateful Chile should be to him for all of his atrocities. He was immediately placed under house arrest again. However on the morning of 10 December 2006 suffered an expected heart attack and had all charges quashed on compassionate grounds by the Chilean government, a pardon issued and his arrest lifted. He died later that day in a military hospital with his whole family in attendance. He was not granted a state funeral (an honor normally bestowed upon past presidents of Chile) but was buried with full military honours in a funeral for their former commander-in-chief by the Army. He was granted last rites by the Catholic church and a religious presence at his funeral, and his cremated remains we taken away to a secret location. Burial was denied him because of threats of vandalism to any tomb or grave from all over the world.

I worked in the passive fire protection side of construction for many years, as an office manager. I eventually came to the conclusion that many (by no means all) of the people working in construction only do so because they are to stupid not to. The push to cut costs and actual time working by the employers in order to keep estimates down lead to dreadful working conditions, low pay, corner cutting, ludicrous health and safety violations and a reliance on sub par workers who will put up with slave like treatment just to pocket a few extra quid dodgey bonus money. One guy almost lost an eye thanks to not wearing double glazed safety googles when a drill bit snapped off and and went straight through the cheap replacements he had bought himself from poundland, having lost his company issue goggles and being afraid to admit it and have to pay the £15 replacement cost. Another occasion saw me having to call the police to remove from site a sprayer turn up for work on Monday morning having been taken off site in an ambulance on Friday because he suffered a severe stroke. He had discharged himself from hospital claiming he could not afford to lose a days pay, even though he was crippled all down one side and and had used a crutch to operate the brake of his car to get to site. In order to go on to site myself I had to complete a CSCS course (Construction Skills Certification scheme) in on site health and safety and appropriate behavior. I assumed the course would be detailed and explanatory. It basically amount to a list of things not to do unless you want to die a horrible and gruesome death. One question I particularly recall was to do with what to do if working a height was impossible because of a delay in the arrival of a cherry picker. The options were A)Wait until it arrives B) Have some one lift you up on the prongs of a fork lift C) pull up a van close to the work area and stand on the roof Amazingly some people got it wrong, however since the pass mark is only 45% this did not really matter that much I suppose. When I scored 100% because I knew not to drink petrol or pain thinners (another question) the administrator call me a clever dick and asked me "what the fuck I was doing there." I had one woman work for us on one occasion, as a sprayer. She left after a week claiming "being around so many arseholes is melting my brain." her name was Pam and the last I heard was she was managing a delivery depot in Middlesbrough. I never saw a women's convenience on site other than in the office because it was according to one project manager I met "Too fucking posh." to have more than one.
'9/11 didn’t end on 9/11': attorney says his clients are still dying 20 years later
LenHazell53 comments on Sep 12, 2021:
It is a matter of record that had the two towers not come down on Sept 11th 2001 they would have had to have been closed shortly thereafter anyway as they where riddled with massive ( millions of tons) amounts of asbestos used in their original construction, the use of which was about to become completely illegal in building used as places of employment in the federal United States. The cost of replacing the the asbestos in the towers was estimated to run in to tens of billions of dollars, and like wise the cost of demolishing the towers safely with that much toxic material in them would have been equally expensive. The plan therefore was to simply abandon them and leave than as concrete sealed monuments, from 2005 onward. When the towers did come down clouds of asbestos flooded the surrounding areas causing massive outbreaks of asbestoses. A second toxic dust cloud was sent up weeks later during the clean up operation, and again intermittently over the following decade, as ground zero was cleared. This is not conspiracy theory, there is no assignment of blame or accusations of cover ups, these are simple verifiable (but largely ignored) facts.

Those who demand the "Freedom" not to wear masks and not be vaccinated use the same arguments as those who opposed the second hand smoke laws, the seat belt laws and those for crash helmets, OUR BODIES OUR CHOICE and yet object wildly when those advocating for abortion rights, say the same thing. Perhaps the smartest thing to do would be to extend this argument to ALL crime, close down the prisons and allow free reign to the murders, rapists, thieves etc ON THE SOLE CONDITION THAT they may only practice their "god given freedom of action" upon ONLY those who supported the same?

An Australian woman's opinion of Australia?
LenHazell53 comments on Sep 10, 2021:
There is no such thing as a free country. Each country tolerates certain cultural freedoms concomitant with tradition and expediency for as long as it is expedient to do so, when it is no longer expedient "freedom to" is transposed with the need for "freedom from" until a new status quo is established. Most freedoms are allowed in order to facilitate fear in the general populous, division in the political system and the desire in the people to be oppressed for their own perceived good. *Oppression by common consent* has been the accepted tool of the right since the end of WW2, you don't need a totalitarian government if you can persuade the electorate TO demand and vote for laws against their own interests. "Woke" society is the latest example of this, when every thing you say can be made to seem offensive, the only freedom left to you is the right to remain silent (and even exercising that right is a bit suspect, because who knows what you are NOT saying).

LenHazell53 comments on Sep 8, 2021:
OH dear Robert Bridge is the master of the false analogy is he not? Kesey’s ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ is obviously well beyond him for a start. Unlike those who have read and actually understood the book, not just quote mined it as Mr Bridges has done while for the most part relying on his knowledge of the film, he would know the metaphor does not stand up in the context he is using it. The book is told from the POV of a mentally deranged man "Chief" Bromden, in whose mind, the complete sociopath McMurphy, is some kind of messianic saviour. When Nurse Ratched as the Chief sees it, "Tortures" the patients, she is actually protecting and caring for them. Trapped in an under funded, short staffed Hell Hole of an institution she alone is doing her best. She is the only one who does care and is the only one who actually not only believes but also can diagnose that Randall is NOT faking it, that he is insane. She knows he is a danger to himself and others and is protecting him, a kindness he repays by assaulting her sexually and trying to kill her. She knows were Randall to be sent back to prison he would be dead in a week, and that he must be controlled for his own good. Unfortunately, while she is away recovering her "superiors" lobotomise Randall as a punishment, driving the Chief to escape and run riot. Like wise the forcible administration of drugs to a certified mental incompetent and dangerous psychopath for his and the protection of others sake, is in no way comparable to mandatory vaccination of ordinary people, who should have the mental competence and social responsibility to in fact demand that they be vaccinated en mass for the good of all. As Nurse Ratched so rightly says, if adults will not behave like adults, then there is no choice but to treat them like children, and protect them and others from their imbecilic behaviour, for the greater good.

LenHazell53 comments on Sep 8, 2021:
When I was at university there was a trend for talking about "textual Catharsis" projecting your emotions on to your close reading of the text in order to purge them from yourself. It got so bad among the structuralists, postmodernist and deconstructivist that one of our lecturers in print journalism (an Australian chap named Phil Elliot) announced before assigning a project that if the word catharsis appeared in any essay by anyone during the entire term he was going to stick the collected works of Jacques Derrida up into an area of the perpetrator "where the sun don't shine".

LenHazell53 comments on Sep 6, 2021:
Mr McCaffrey's review is filled with fear, so much so that you can practically smell him shitting his pants as he hunches over his tripe writer screaming to keep the nasty wimmins away from his withered scrote sack. I saw the "Cinderella" remake yesterday, my (lesbian, married) niece asked to watch it with her wife while visiting. It's okay, not good, not bad, bright and colourful, little kids will love it. All that is different from any other version of Cinders that I have seen on stage, screen or TV is that the prince does not want to be king he just wants to be free to marry someone he loves rather than be ordered to marry for political expedience (How toxic is that shock horror, oh hang on isn't that from teh original story?). Cinderella herself wants to be allowed to prove herself capable rather than just to be married off for a dowry or used as a slave (Again isn't that from the original story too?). So the happy ever after is different from the usual one in that she saves him rather than the other way around. Very Buffy the vampire slayer. The whole film is stolen by Maddie Baillio as Malvolia and Charlotte Spencer as Narissa the step sisters who are genuinely funny and act as the comic relief throughout in parts obviously meant to be a knock off Kirsten Wigg and Mellissa McCarthy who would have stunk up the screen unlike these two ladies who shine.

VIRAGO.
LenHazell53 comments on Sep 5, 2021:
Oddly virago is a Latin term that means "thanks to man" in the sense of a respectful impersonation vir=man ago=thanked Later of course it became derogatory, assigning "inappropriate" male traits to a woman, such as being an arsehole, being bad tempered and a bully. All traits that apparently are not only acceptable but admirable in the male, for some "odd" reason.

I had this problem with one of my Staffies, she would begin to bark at 3.00 pm every day to be taken for a walk. I figured that she was hearing the bell ring in the local close by primary school to signal the end of the school day. However when visiting my father who lives out in the middle of nowhere, she still began barking at 3 on the dot. What was more unnerving was that, even when the clocks changed for BST or GMT she still barked at three by the clock. So either she could actually tell time by the clock, or was picking up on some unconscious reaction from me. My current dog, a Shar-Pei, is also practically autistic and gets very angry if her precise routine is not adhered to, going off to sulk in corners and grumble to herself until things are back on schedule.

Perseus was able to slay her by turning his back and watching her approach in the fogged back of his shield, before covering his eyes with his helmet, turning and striking her down.

This myth has only gained credence since the version by Israel Kamakawiwoสปole, who substantially altered the lyrics. The original version of the lyrics was commissioned from Harburg and, like all the other songs, were based on dialog from the script and the book by L. Frank Baum who was an atheist. Harburg and Arlen wrote all of the other songs in the film however they were not a song writing team. Harold Arlen was a very prolific composer who worked in Holywood right up until his death in 1986, Harburg wrote the original songs for the film but had them roundly rejected as being too poor, his lyrics however made it in to the film but for many years were uncredited. The two men did not know each other and only met at the premier in 1939.

So banning black people from the priesthood until 1978, was nothing to do with this, it was just that black people erm "were not ready" for the priesthood YET, but now they are and the declaration in 78 confirmed that and had nothing to do with the federal government threatening to withdraw the church's tax except status if they did not stop denying it.

Well that's the US for you, richest country in the world and the only one without some form of national health system. A country that cares about its own citizens so much they can fuck off and die if they cannot afford the price of an antibiotic, insulin or treatment for a gun shot wound. And yet still does not realise it's "Great" health care system is the laughing stock of the world, especially when Billie Bob and Bubba Joe can be persuaded to turn out and protest against their own best interests, while hacking up bile because of the cough they have had for twenty years and cannot afford to get fixed.

"A Lyttell Gest of Robyn Hode" is an English folk ballad, the oldest known copy of which dates from 1450, but tells of a "Brave Yoman" who lived in the time of King Edward, probably Edward II who had in 1324 a "valet de chambre" with the name of Robin Hood. Pitting Robin Hood against wicked usurper King John Lackland first appeared in the 16th century when the Lincoln weaving company based in the midlands of England released an advertising ballad called "The adventure of Robyn Hood" to sell their new product Lincoln Graine a new shade of red. This fashionable cloth replaced their previous Best seller Will (meaning a poet) Scarlett, Who also appears in the song along with Alan-a-Dale their fictitious spokes person and the maid Marion a clumsy religious metaphor. In later times Friar Tuk, Much the Miller's son and John Little other folk heroes were added to the myth to form the band of Merry Men. The real Robyn of Loxley (a village just outside of Sheffield) was Robert Fitztooth or Fitzooth (Child of God's own Truth), illegitimate son of Earl of Huntingdon. This Robyn fought in the Crusades gaining fame for his prowess with a sword and bloodthirsty appetite for killing Saracens. He is first identified with Robin Hood in the 1880's when the East Coast Sea Side town of Baytown changed it's name to Robin Hood's Bay in order to attract tourists. This they did by claiming Robin Hood while visiting Whitby abbey saved Baytown from marauding Pirates and had them rename the place in his honour. A deception which drew to the town Bram Stoker who was inspired by said Whitby Abbey to write Dracula and have the Vampire count live there. Sean Connery's appearance as Richard 1 in Prince of thieves is a call back to Connery's Role as the aged Robin Hood in "Robin and Marion" 1976

Free means you have rights and responsibilities It does not mean you can choose to exercise the former and choose reject the latter if it feels like a bother. Free mean you are free to and must be free from, to the point when your right to have freedom too infringes my my right to have freedom from.

Comparing one atrocity to another in order to try and claim a spurious moral high ground undermines the seriousness of both tragedies and the evil done in the name of society. Inhumanity is not a competitive sport. Victim hood is not a competition. Anyone who thinks it is, can only be described as a sick fuck! These children, white,black or sky blue pink with yellow dots on, were victims, their parents were victims and the consequences ripple through time as a testament to the failure of people to be civilised, humane or even worthy of the epithets human being. They need to grow up, team up and make sure this never happens again TO ANYONE!
We keep trying to put band-aids on societal issues that require tourniquets.

This is very one sided. Service industries are there to provide a service, one that is paid for, often by other service employees who themselves have had to put up with toxic customers and have done so. Now entitled behaviour and bullying is NEVER acceptable from anyone, and the answer is simple, if you are getting bad service at one place, go somewhere else. If a customer is misbehaving send them somewhere else. Don't argue with an idiot, don't engage with a bully. I worked for 5 years in customer services in the then Inland revenue (HMRC now) Dealing face to face with hundreds of people every day, all of who where angry and felt they had been wronged. The colleague who trained me and who I eventually took over from, was a large, combative very rude and angry woman who got in to a dozen fights a day and called security on half those occasions. She only kept her position because no one else would do it, except me apparently. By the time I took over full time security were ringing me to ask if we were actually open, since in five years I only found it necessary to have called them three time. (Once memorably when a man came in to the inquiry office with a fourteen pound sledge hammer and began dismantling the place.) Most situations can be dealt with by simply knowing your job, product knowledge, empathy (Not sympathy) and not rising to combat anger with anger. An obnoxious customer has come looking for a fight, if they don't get what they came looking for they will either leave or allow you to actually help with the root cause of the problem. The old adage applies and works very well "The customer is always right, even when he is completely off his trolley."

Historian Sarah Rutherford in her seminal work "The Victorian Asylum" spends a chapter talking about "The Nuthatch Asylum" in Bodmin Cormwall. (A Nuthatch is a wading marsh bird common in the marsh areas of Devon and Cornwall) A progressive establishment run by a Quaker order, it was perhaps the most humane asylum for the mentally ill in England in the Victorian era. One of their more prestigious patients was Sir William Gull the Queens own physician, who embarrassingly went mad is buried their anonymously in a grave marked "A. Mason" The Doctor who ran the Nuthatch was a Dutch quaker (whose name escapes me for the moment) a follower of the methods for humane treatment of the mentally ill pioneered by William Tuke who pronounced the name of the old converted manor in his European accent as der Nert Hooch. In time staff and locals came to refer to patients as Nert's or Nutters and to Nuthatch itself as the Nuthouse and the Booby Hatch (A booby is a marsh dwelling bird the whoops and howls at night) During world war 2 American Troops were billeted in the reopened "Nert House" and were soon dubbed with the nick name Nerts which many of them pronounced "nerds" meaning crazy people. By this means the word made it back to America where it was heard and used by American Army cartoonist and propagandist Ted Geisel, who in 1950 used the word as a nonsense word in his children's book "If I Ran the Zoo" under his pen name Doctor Suess.

Kubla Khan BY SAMUEL TAYLOR COLERIDGE Or, a vision in a dream. A Fragment. In Xanadu did Kubla Khan A stately pleasure-dome decree: Where Alph, the sacred river, ran Through caverns measureless to man Down to a sunless sea. So twice five miles of fertile ground With walls and towers were girdled round; And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills, Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree; And here were forests ancient as the hills, Enfolding sunny spots of greenery. But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover! A savage place! as holy and enchanted As e’er beneath a waning moon was haunted By woman wailing for her demon-lover! And from this chasm, with ceaseless turmoil seething, As if this earth in fast thick pants were breathing, A mighty fountain momently was forced: Amid whose swift half-intermitted burst Huge fragments vaulted like rebounding hail, Or chaffy grain beneath the thresher’s flail: And mid these dancing rocks at once and ever It flung up momently the sacred river. Five miles meandering with a mazy motion Through wood and dale the sacred river ran, Then reached the caverns measureless to man, And sank in tumult to a lifeless ocean; And ’mid this tumult Kubla heard from far Ancestral voices prophesying war! The shadow of the dome of pleasure Floated midway on the waves; Where was heard the mingled measure From the fountain and the caves. It was a miracle of rare device, A sunny pleasure-dome with caves of ice! A damsel with a dulcimer In a vision once I saw: It was an Abyssinian maid And on her dulcimer she played, Singing of Mount Abora. Could I revive within me Her symphony and song, To such a deep delight ’twould win me, That with music loud and long, I would build that dome in air, That sunny dome! those caves of ice! And all who heard should see them there, And all should cry, Beware! Beware! His flashing eyes, his floating hair! Weave a circle round him thrice, And close your eyes with holy dread For he on honey-dew hath fed, And drunk the milk of Paradise. Coleridge Had intended it to be an epic poem, written in the throws of a laudanum trip. However he was interrupted by a "man from Porlock" (a near by village) who insisted on engaging Coleridge at length about trivialities. By the time Coleridge had closed the door on the busy body the rest of the poem had been lost to the midst of his drug addled brain forever. Douglas Adams used this incident as a center piece for his novel "The Dirk Gently Holistic Detective Agency"

New Rule: Your Phone is Turning You into an Asshole | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO) - YouTube
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 23, 2021:
Radio, television and telephones (real ones) came with an accepted etiquette. If a visitor came to your home, you turned off the TV and you conversed with them. Radio the same or turned down for back ground noise. If the phone rang, it was out of the main social area, in the hall or the kitchen, you spoke privately on the phone, out of the room for reasons of mutual privacy and respect. There were other unwritten rules, such as if someone wanted to speak to you, you did not ignore what they were saying and carry on watching Tom & Jerry while they spoke, you paid attention to them favouring the other person over your own personal gratification. Other than in an emergency you did not phone people after 9 o'clock at night. You did not phone your next door neighbour, you went and knocked on the door and spoke to them. If someone used the phone to sexually harass another person it was a crime. p/tSmart phones have no etiquette as to how, when or where you use them and for what purpose. They have almost become a form of ersatz personal telepathy, sharing your life with a chosen group of others, who you connect to at the expense of actual community. You ignore people who are actually there with you, other than to ask them to pay for this opt out, because real people are "Boomers" or old farts who "don't get it." Because Oh God Forbid that a child actually be asked pay their own phone bill or internet bill, by getting a P/t job, because that would be deprivation and child abuse. God Forbid a child be expected to communicate with the family that is feeding them while they sit at the same table and eat. No. rather they sit with a fork in one hand, phone in the other and play a game of candy crush with a "friend" on another continent in a corrupt form of English consisting of a form of short hand gibberish. Other, that is, than to complain to the person cooking for you, that the pizza you spent an hour making is shit, because it did not come from Dominoes and therefore is not 50% monosodium glutamate and does not taste and reek of plastic and so is not "real".

This to my mind, raises two questions 1 What has happed in the USA to make a significant minority of people SO insanely mistrustful of their own government. and 2 How fucking shit is the American educational system that enough people are willing to give this utter bullshit enough credence for it to have become a problem. I'm tempted to say, just let the arseholes chow down on horse wormer and fish tank bleach to their hearts content it just call it mass suicide.

JACKSIE (or JACKSY).
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 23, 2021:
Unfortunately, Jacksie is not cockney rhyming slang. In England Fanny has never meant bottom or buttocks, it has always been a slang term for the vagina. There was an expression used in London in the late 19th century, which was a Jackie-Pardy, short for a politician/civil servant named Jack Pardoe a notorious liar, and a Jack Pardoe promise (Or Jackie Pardy) was worth "shit" as he talked out of his arse. The Modern use of the word Jacksie dates from World War 2. Robert Yaxley was a famous RAF Pilot and rear gunner, much decorated and his name Yaxley was adopted as a slang term by aircrews for being shot from the rear of the plane. Polish and Canadian Pilots however unfamiliar with the name pronounced it Jacksie (J is pronounced Y in polish) assuming it simply meant the rear of the plane. After the war, this entered common slang as back end, backside and eventually your bottom.
