    Bye bye Treason May?

    The EU-Japan EPA is due to come into effect soon. This EPA eliminates virtually all tariffs between the EU and Japan. What it does not do is: 1) force Japan to accept FoM 2) force Japan to pay billions into the EU coffers 3) make Japan subordinate to the ECJ 4) require Japan to align itself to EU rules. The rules adhered to are agreed international standards and not EU ones Thus we are supposed to believe that the EU can't possibly work out an EPA with a country that has been a member for 45 years+. Anyone who is under the delusion that the EU is not seeking to punish the UK should let the scales fall from their eyes now. They hate us and are seeking to destroy us.

    Just donate in that case, you don't need to share your details with them to do that. They have that anonymous via Paypal (you can still use a normal credit card, no need to sign up Paypal) thing: https://www.paypal.com/donate/?token=veBNDhTf-L1mZDL_ZlMnMoOglDVSbJTRu4YEvZ10q5g6RbGVLnm0BjdaBsagnjkXRiNa70&country.x=GB&locale.x=GB And that you're scared to be on the mailing list of a registered UK political party speaks volumes for everything we should all be standing up against.

    Islamification of Europe

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/jul/16/migration-to-uk-from-eu-falls-to-lowest-level-for-four-years-says-ons 630,000 incoming per year 'net' 270,000 per year A million extra people every 4 years. According to OFFICIAL statistics (which based on every country in history is going to be less than the real immigration figures) Emigration up. No breakdown of those numbers as to how many are ethnic British leaving. Suspect it's pretty high. This is race-replacement in real time, folks. But I'm just a nasty racist, obv.

    Trump's progress

    I think those at the very top of the tree hate him because he actually believes in a meritocratic system where people can make it not matter who their parents or grandparents were. TPTB like systems in which the masses slave away but never amass capital and effectively those at the top are supported by their labour. The greatest example was Trumps action to stop the 1% in NY,NJ,Calif from deducting the cost of their huge mortgages from their federal tax liabilities. In short, those living in the most expensive real estate in North America were getting the people living in flyover states to pay part of their mortgages. It's a huge socialist move by Trump - taking money away from the rich and giving it to the poor (or rather stopping a loophole that let the rich take money off the poor) - that has been completely ignored by the media. I am also convinced that they HATE him because they sense he deals in reality more than any US leader since the 50's. Most people at the top know that if the masses really understood how things work, they's be hanging from lampposts.

    The UK has changed rapidly in just the last 2 - 3 years. It will continue to change for decades to come - for the worse IMPO. I fear that we will be forced to become like large parts of the US where people divide upon certain ethnic groups. I will continue to have no problem with sikhs or hindus, for example, but I find myself more and more wanting nothing to do with muslims even though I have muslim friends in London. Likewise, I want nothing to do with sub-Saharan Africans. Quite simply, their culture and attitudes are alien and medieval to my traditional liberal values.

    Part n parcel of living in London

    I have this deep concern for the UK for next time we have a recession -- for now the masses are placated (by tax credits), but we've managed to build up an ultra-violent underclass that has links to all the weaponry, skills and techniques from every shithole in the world.

    Bye bye Treason May?

    Went and read that and besides the usual found this bit of interest. 'In London we saw pro Trump supporters issued with written warnings that gathering in groups of more than 3 may result in arrest, at the same time as an effigy of a beheaded President was being paraded through the streets by anti Trump protestors. The Mayor Sadiq Khan incredibly tried to suggest ‘Extreme Right Wingers & Pro Trump protestors’ caused violence, after a group were attacked by masked ‘Antifa’ thugs.' Now where in history would you find states that ban gatherings of more than 3 people?

    Now it's BrexitReality - in other words NoBrexit. Now it's the needs of the manufacturing sector - there was nothing about that on the poll slip. They are all such treasonous and self serving riff raff.

    I'm watching "Sunday Morning Live". Seemingly there is a huge problem in the UK with women getting wolf whistled at and it should be treated as a "hate crime". On one hand Rotherham was ignored then the So-Called BBC discusses a trivial issue like this. Our media is shit. They go after the easy targets and ignore the things that should be exposed.

    Thanks for the response @whocares. On Sunday night I had another night of insomnia and rumination and was hence a gibbering wreck on Monday in work, but I also had a fucking word with myself and resolved to sort a few things out: - My apartment matched my mindset; it was a fucking wreck that looked like it had just been ransacked. So I went home at lunchtime for 2 hours on Monday and did some cleaning/tidying, and left work earlier than I usually do, and I've been completely re-arranging the flat top to bottom and giving it a good clean - it already looks twice as big as it did yesterday. It'll look even better once I've had another 4 hours or so at it tonight. - Because of the fact that I was physically tired from spending all evening tidying stuff up, and with the help of the highest strength non-prescription sleeping tablet available (Nytol 50mg), I actually got a nights sleep last night, and therefore didn't have a panic attack before the meeting today. Which was nice. - During the meeting, there was a couple of things that annoyed me, and one in particular that usually would have wound me up for days, but I told myself 'it's just work'. I can't change it. The only way I can change it is get a new job, so unless I'm doing that any time spent giving off about it is a complete waste of time. My work colleagues are not my friends, and my work is not my life or the basis for my self-esteem (or rather it shouldn't be; I have a feeling it had been recently). I'll be assertive in work when I can be (i.e. not let people take advantage of me or work longer hours than I'm paid to), but worrying about anything more than that is a waste of time. - I went home for lunch today as well; it's much better sitting in my nice apartment in front of my TV eating lunch than sitting in the office. Plus it adds an extra 20 mins brisk walking to the day's total exercise. - I've spent very little time online the last 4 days or so. I spend too much time reading about things online that annoy me and that I can't change. This I think fosters a feeling of helplessness, which deepens the anxiety/depression. I think feeling helpless is a big part of why I feel so bad much of the time, so I need to work against that. And, whilst I acknowledge the struggles finding a decent partner in today's dating market, I have to admit that I use the consumption of 'manosphere'/Red Pill stuff as an ego defense of sorts; a tool to distract me from addressing my own issues or at the very least just enjoying life, and it's a waste of time. So that's gotta stop. Cause nobody wants to date some cunt who spends all evening reading the fucking manosphere. - Made the effort to have a conversation today with my mate in work who had been all quiet. He responded and we chatted a bit. I'd considered being direct and asking him why he'd been quiet, but I figure blokes don't do heart to hearts like that so I'd just gradually start making conversation again and see if he joins in. I'm still considering going to the doctor to talk about meds, but I'll spend a week or two stopping doing things that make me feel shit first, and see if I need the meds as a boost after that.

    Trump's progress

    Guy phoned in on LBC today (forget which host it was at the time) saying that right wingers (ie Trumpers/Brexiters) are "haters", whereas left wingers (eg Clintoners/Remainers) like him are not. They (ie left wingers like him) hate absolutely no-one ... er apart from right wingers, of course. The radio host quite rightly picked up on this contradiction, said "so you DO hate some ppl?", but Mr "I love everyone except right-wingers" absolutely couldn't see the problem with this position as right wingers have to be hated I assume? And he stumbled on a for a while, getting more and more irrational (and digging a hole for himself) before they had to cut him short/off. In my personal experience, I try to avoid talking politics where poss (apart from with my OH who has opposite views to mine, so we have some lively debates) as I know in advance that my stance will raise eyebrows. But, if cornered, I will NOT deny my views. I sort of feel I have to let ppl know that there are many views - not just theirs. And that we can agree to disagree without falling out. I find I tend to speak up when friends say something like "gosh who would vote for that idiot Trump - isnt he awful" or "only ignorant ppl voted for Brexit", cos if I didn't I am sure they would go further down that road of insults to the point where I could never speak my mind without causing them acute embarrassment. So I generally pipe up with "er me - I think Trump is doing OK for now", or "actually I am pro leaving the EU as the EU doesn't seem very open to democracy and is getting more autocratic/less flexible over time and many of us voters didn't want/expect to be absorbed into an EU super-power where we lost control of our choices and when we complained about being forced to accept certain rules and regs, we were told if you don't like it you should leave which was a threat in my view and that makes them a load of bullies? " ... and their faces are quite a picture, cos they really can't believe that they knew anyone who could be such "a dick", while being relatively well educated and normal-ish. At that point we generally change topics as they don't want to debate with me, cos they probably want to call me a thick racist or sthing but realise they can't do that without being super-rude. My OH is on their side (and he makes that very clear) which helps a bit with the awkwardness as he sort of apologises for me, so I guess he neutralises me in their heads? (And I expect that they feel sorry for him!) Of course, while my revealed position comes as a shock to them, I knew all along what their views would be, and I didn't hold it against them at all. So hope they don't hold my views against me? Live and let live eh? But seems a lot harder for them to face someone in their social circle who holds an opposite view to them - someone who doesn't have 2 heads and/or belong to a far right gang of thugs. And as I am married to "a foreigner", we gave the children foreign sounding names, we have happily lived in many different countries and we now live in France, plus I speak a reasonable level of French, they can't label me as a classic xenophobe. So they are perplexed - they just can't understand. Whereas I can very easily understand and accept their stances. So i do think a lot of the left believe themselves to be "the good guys". (The "never haters".) But they can actually sometimes be haters too? (They just hate ppl who don't think like them?) My argument to them (re unfettered immigration into the EU should continue) is that there are lots of poor, desperate, marginalised and abused ppl around the world who would love to walk into the USA or into the EU. But does that mean we should let them? The left really have no answer to the question of "when do we stop the in-flow". And those of us who CAN foresee a possible crisis if we continue the way we are going with mass, illegal immigration, we seem to be the baddies. Hmm. I really can't see the open borders logic at all, apart from them wanting to be seen as "being nice and kind" to poor ppl. But they want the state to look after the new comers. That's the big problem. And claim that overall they won't be a burden, as we need new ppl to work. (But I think that's not true. And that targetted immigration of required skills is a far better way to go.) I guess I hope I only hate certain situations which are allowed to develop, rather than hating any individuals as we all are programmed to act largely in our own self interest? We try to maintain a good life for ourselves and our loved ones? And not want ppl to come along and spoil that or threaten our well-being? One on one charity is usually a good thing eg when you give of yourself or of your own funds. But charity is not a good thing when it's not your money and it will affect the well being of others in your tribe/nation ie you are giving away the rights and benefits of your current/future fellows against their will/knowledge?

    The normalisation of female obesity

    I went on a school trip to two co-op factories built on the same site. Think left twix right twix. One made margarine, the other soap. I asked why they shared a site and the answer was that the stuff that was left over from the production of one product was the feed stock for the other. "So when you make the margarine the leftovers make soap?" "No"

    Hi Joe, I have just caught up on this thread and wanted to send you a message ... I also suffer from low moods - for no reason sometimes. And occasionally from anxiety. But it's never been crippling. So I have never regarded myself as ill/needing medical help/medication. I reckon most of us do? (If we will admit it.) Hard to measure an individual's mood/anxiety tho? And I have no idea how bad it gets for you. (Sounds a bit worse but I can't tell, of course.) I have no excuse for feeling sad as I know I am v lucky. I am in my sunset years now, having had an easy life. We worked hard and we were both careful so we are now retired/healthy, happily married/not lonely. So there's logically no reason for me to feel down. (It's just the way my brain works - I can seize on doubt/negativity and also worry about things uselessly.) For now I am pretty happy most of the time, which is great. I try to acknowledge that and be grateful for it, in order to fully enjoy it, knowing that shit will happen and that maybe 2moro (or sometime soon) things could change and I might have to face something unpleasant. Or worse. As that's life? Shit happens to us all? So I guess I try to 'bank' the good moments for when the bad times roll into town. (Like storing grain for the winter months?) In my case, I feel I am still learning about how to better manage any low moods/anxiety. I have found some ways to hoik up my mood myself when it is slipping down. (Or just try to stop it falling any further.) One way I have found useful is to accept that life has no reason and we are just here to just get on with it? (There's a method/book called "Fuck it" which made me laugh. Think it actually can work sometimes too.) And I try to acknowledge/not blame my feelings. Then I try to get outside. (Walk or run/cycle.) And I try to make myself laugh, even briefly. Or get absorbed in an activity or mental activity. It all helps. Friends can be useful/positive, but not always. (Depends on who and on how they are feeling!) You have found out yourself (ie re your work colleague) that other ppl can be fickle and sometimes make you feel worse rather than better! Nb Friends/family/partner may have their own shit going on, so I try to rely more on myself mostly if I can. (Or on more remote interactions - like on here - which I know won't hurt me as much as a real life rejection or criticism.) Anyway, plse don't feel weak. We are all clinging to the wreckage in one way or another. But there are brilliant moments which can come along out of the blue - we just need to ride the waves and make the most of those good times? Keep posting when you feel up for it as it's such a great little club here I find. (Even if we are all mostly wrong and possibly mad!) I have often felt much happier just to come on and read/join in the banter. (Even tho I am not a v funny person myself.) I usually 'get' the jokes and enjoy them! Btw, you (and your dry humour/self mockery) have made me laugh so many times. So thank you Joe! (And thank you all other DOSBODS-ers!) It's an escape from a mad world on here sometimes!

    Trump's progress

    Can be summarised by the reaction of Republicans when Obama got elected vs the reaction of Democrats when Trump got elected. The right wing, were disappointed, shrugged their shoulders and got on with things. The left seem have got into a complete meltdown, some even refusing to accept the result. That is the difference in tolerance between the left/right

    Islamification of Europe

    We will have some of the vilest muslims with their vile views against gays and women in Parliament one day. The demographics will enable that. Already we are seeing certain MP's from certain ethnic groups feeling emboldened to say things like telling white girl victims of muslim rape gangs to shut up or that white people should not stand for election in predominantly black areas. Imagine if, for decades, white MP's had said that non-whites should not be standing in predominantly white areas. I fear that some of the ethnic groups are showing their racism towards white people but everyone is too afraid or too politically correct to call them out for it. I fear we are being split on skin colour which I find depressing.

    We are two generations on from the masses having to have dog licenses. Parents who were shitty dog owners have had kids who have now grown up to be shitty dog owners. It's a microcosm of the benefit society.... Anyone know if you can still get dog laxative sweets? Always good to feed to the badly controlled ones so they shit all over the owners car on the way home...

    Tbh, this is like the referendums in other EU countries. Countries voted against the referendum then the EU had another referendum so the electorate could vote the right way. Before the referendum Cameron went to the EU to get some concessions. He came back with fuck all. Treason May is basically presenting the same deal Cameron got as "Brexit". One of the reasons I voted Brexit was because it was undemocratic. The whole Brexit debacle illustrates how the EU just doesn't reflect the wishes of the electorate.

    Trump's progress

    A message on behalf of the people in Wales to the people in Wales by the people of Wales condemning President Trump for the people of Wales. At an event in Cardiff Bay held at the Senedd, Welsh Assembly Government building, organised by Sarah Sweeney from Women's Equality Network Wales. Sarah Sweeney spoke for us : " I think anybody with a heart can understand why people across Wales and the UK are protesting Donald Trump's presence here. He is openly racist, he is openly sexist, he degrades women, he oppresses them, he tries to take away their rights. I think if we don't stand up and say something against his Presidency, then we could be seen as complicit in accepting his views. Which we absolutely are not. " Thank you Sarah. I would also like to thank the 17 people that took the time to attend the event. Thanks also to the organisers of the protests in Swansea, and Cardiff city centre. There was a Trump impersonator, and puppets, leading a procession to the central library. Thanks, of course, to the 37 people, stopping to have a look, as they walked around the shops. Perhaps, above all, thank you BBC Wales for sending reporter Jennifer Jones to report from the protests, and for spending so much time to cover them fully.

    The normalisation of female obesity

    There is something about the modern western diet that's fucking people up though. It's got to be systemic because it happened to so many people in such a short period of time. I used to blame individuals -- let's be honest it's easy to mock a fatty -- but official dietary advice based on the "eat grains and seed oils, and avoid animal fats" model is starting to look beyond moronic. Then chuck in the government sponsored weight loss advice -- to double down, cut more animal fats, eat more carbs, and take your fat arse jogging 'till your knee pops from the strain. -- and I just feel sorry for them.
