Meanwhile in Japan the Navy, aka the MSDF, is showing off their latest piece of technology. New submarine hunter aircraft and a new class of AEGIS destroyer. Comes with footage of the demonstration of this new tech.
So I just agreed to buy 46 acres of land (somewhere in TN). Cost: just under $50,000.
It’s right near my brother’s 88 acres. Yep; I’m homesteading too. I want to plant fruit trees and crops; I want simpler things, and concerns.
Unlike my bro, I don’t want a simpler world. But just like him, I don’t think this present one is viable.
Still…if you have post-Apocalyptic skills, email us. We hope to outlast the digital age.
The so called “ethics council” (Ethikrat) in Germany has published a 91 page statement in which they support legalizing incest between siblings.
Incest is banned under §173 of the German criminal code.
It gets interesting at page 72.
The ethics council recommends the following.
1) A consensual sexual relationship between siblings of legal age (18 in Germany) shall no longer be a felony punishable under the law.
2) If one of the siblings is above 14 but still under 18 and hasn’t been part of the nuclear family for some time, that sibling shall not be punished. The other sibling, if he or she is 18 or more, shall still be punished, because the other partner is a minor under the law.
In the original statement #2 talks a lot about the separation being of “adequate length” and of “objective assessment” determining whether a unification of both under the nuclear family is likely or not, but I think we know how “objectivity” is handled by such people. As for the “adequate length” of the separation, what is adequate? Of course, the recommendation doesn’t state that. Most likely another decision based on a dice roll.
A discussion based on facts is not happening, because of the good old “Nazikeule”, the Nazi bat. Because Nazi Germany applied eugenics means that today’s government must not have any thoughts or worries about the population’s health. Genetically healthy children as a goal of politics is discrimination against handicapped people.
I know, there are some German readers here, but I think they’ll understand when I say the next. Some time ago I changed the comparison of stupid/dumb/etc in German. Properly it is “dumm, dümmer, am dümmsten”, basically dumb, dumber, dumbest. However, in the light of such events, decisions and recommendations turning more and more into normality in Germany, I have changed it to “dumm, dümmer, Deutschland”. Dumb, dumber, Germany.
Because, seriously, what the heck is going on?
Next to come: legalize sexual relationships between parents and children and eventually pedophilia as well. There is already a movement for the latter lobbying for legalizing it in Europe.
I’m not getting back into political commentary. But this is stupid even for single-digit-IQ progressives.
Those are the 4 federally-approved health care program types. But as the author of the article notes:
There are gaps between the corridors. And if your plan happens to fall within one of the gaps, it is no longer a valid plan.
Ha ha ha! This is what happens when Evil (Bureaucracy) steals the color-code for Good (Dragons)!
Didn’t get that reference? The following webcomic will explain it perfectly, if you already understand it. Otherwise you’ll become even more lost.
So, on the drive back from Ohio, I had to stop at a TimeWarner office to turn in my modem. My car was fully packed with all the junk from my little apartment…including a full 5-gallon gas can.
I had it with me because my younger brother…you know, the paranoid one…wanted me always able to retreat to his remote holdfast in the event of Zombie Apocalypse or, worse, UUG! Utterly Unfettered Government. Since I haven’t had to cut and run (yet), this was the only time I’ve ever had it with me.
So I come out of the office and two gals are calling to me from their car, asking for my help. I’m already instinctively reaching for my wallet, but they don’t react at all like panhandlers. “Oh,” I realized, “you actually need gas.” And I grinned. Said, “give me a minute,” and fired off a quick prayer to the Lord for this really nifty chance to do a good deed.
They were suitably amazed when I “hey-presto!”ed that gas tank from a crammed-to-the-gunwales Camry.
I said “hi” to Ohio 27 weeks ago. As soon as this is posted, the computer and monitor go in the car, then I make like a tree and
God willing, will be back in TN by late afternoon. Hopefully will be back online soon thereafter. Of course there is one complication. My 82″ T.V. must miss me as much as I’ve missed it. I’m comin’ home to ya, baby!
And don’t you dare forget: the ‘Bama/Florida game is this Saturday, at 3:30 EST, on CBS. Foosball foosball foosball!
