The politicization of Science

December 16, 2014 10 Comments
By

The beauty of the net and political blogging is that data is always coming in from disparate sources. This one, on the climate change targets, comes from the mother of one of my blog’s contributors, Rossa. Straight to it: Many of us have been misled to believe that the 2°C was established by leading climate scientists and even made to “international law” that now has to be strictly adhered to,…

Whites segregated at race equality demos in U.S.

Oh the irony! For those who can’t see the print, there’s a transcription below the pic: White Peoples Roles & Responsibilities # Show up # Stay off the megaphone # Direct media to Black leadership # Follow direction of Black leadership # Protest from our position (We are not Mike Brown, carry signs challenging white supremacy) # Call-in/collect white folks who are causing harm and/or breaking guidelines set by Black…

Kerry Smith

Seems to me Kerry Smith must stand down or be removed. You can say all you like that this is gutter politics, dredging up something probably obtained illegally, that a man should not be judged by his choice of fruity expressions. In a fair world, maybe not. But in a constituency UKIP have [or had?] a good chance of taking, there are too many non-voters and undecideds who will heed…

BBC Question Time [2]

The Kent Online poll was running throughout BBCQT. Early, it had well over 50% pro-Brand but after the show concluded, it swung right back the other way, as you see in the graph. Interesting. Organized trolling early? That blue rinse woman on the show was the Socialist anti-Farage campaign leader in Thanet South [we're she does not live]. Not Labour per se but Marxist, like Brand. Why give any space…

BBC Question Time [1]

This is one of those epiphanies in the middle of the night. Woke up and immediately this post sprang, almost fully formed, to the mind. It revolves around realizing, for the first time, how a buffoon looking like the popular conception of Jesus, bereft of any real policies, has started a personality cult and has filled a void on one side of politics. Sorry, call me slow on the uptake…

Ad absurdum

We go on about it, from all the little blogs to some of the MSM these days, we’re told there is no such thing as left and right but this vid demonstrates that there very much is, there are distinct characteristics to it and it results in a downgrading of society into absurdity: This via Wiggia: There are clear absurdities in society, from the way government departments deal with you…

Power

Most people don’t openly talk about personal matters in a blog such as this but I find it makes things clearer to see them in black and white print before the eyes. Then, instead of it swirling around the brain, one can see it before the eyes and it becomes easier to be dispassionate. The big thing is to extract the emotion from situations before deciding, put it all down…

The outrage over Farage’s comments on breastfeeding

December 5, 2014 11 Comments

We seem to have a real problem in this country. Perhaps in other countries too but I’m looking at this one. Let’s go back to Nigel Farage’s comments yesterday which so many misrepresented. Donna Edmunds, Breitbart: Farage Advocates Good Manners; Media Storm Over Women’s Rights Ensues Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party has hit the headlines for daring to question whether women should ostentatiously breastfeed in public. “Nigel…

One way to resolve our troubles

Capital and labour Greed.  Fear. Intransigence.  Dishonesty.  Attitude. Was it JD who said that the problem is people’s personal greed?  Seven deadly sins but especially greed. It is but it must also be seen in the context of what other forces are playing on the individual.  While there is perma-greed in there, ofttimes the wage demand is fear driven, fear of falling behind in the race to oblivion – wages,…

A site purportedly libertarian needs to discuss these things

There are things happening and OoL really must comment on them if it’s to have credence as a libertarian site. Item 1 – The Tories scraping the bottom of the barrel a. Tim Aker It’s possible the print is too small but it speaks of UKIP’s Tim Aker.  The Tories campaigning against him have issued a leaflet drawing attention to Mr. Aker’s Turkish roots. Nice.  Are they trying to hand…

Outrageous actions of official bodies

Sorry but there is very great wrong being done in this Officer Wilson case. Whatever anyone thinks of the verdict, this was the verdict of a Grand Jury – 12 people decided this, of which three were black. The witnesses exonerating Wilson were black. Just as with the Casey Anthony case, despite widespread unhappiness about the verdict, the jury had to come down on the basis of the evidence –…

Assisted Voluntary Return

Isn’t that lovely – on top of the immigration figures, our kindly government offers up to £1500 plus the assistance below to return to your own country, should you claim asylum and are refused: Of course, you must understand that this is not our government asssiting you – they make that quite clear in the brochure. This is a totally independent, self-funded organization called Choice who is doing all this.…

Issues from Ferguson and Lee Rigby

This article contains a vid pane in which multiple news broadcasts on Ferguson follow one another and it’s eye opening. There are issues to go into: Why did the National Guard hold back? There’ve been two explanations.  One is by ex-Mayor Giuliani [and he should know] who said there is a school of thought which says ‘cooling off period’.  In practice, there is no cooling off, only a heating-up.  The only…

Where’s the gold?

Where’s the gold?

Interesting question and only alternative sites are commenting on it: Note how gold flows into New York, but has difficulty flowing out of US private banking hands as is the case with the ‘confiscation’ of Germany’s gold. Numerous attempts by Bundesbank to repatriate its gold reserves have been met with a brick wall, and to date, Germany has only recovered a miniscule 5 tonnes directly from the NY Fed – out of the…

What do Egypt and Theresa May have in common?

The truth about things can take surprising turns.  With one upcoming post on the EPA, it seems the truth damns Republicans but it still must be told, for all that.  This one now, today, doesn’t seem to help any particular western group but once again – for all that, it still needs telling. Sitting back and drawing breath, staring at the words on the page of the article I’m about…
