    Austin Allegro got a reaction from DTMark in Jordan Peterson   
    This sounds like the standard Christian apologetics to 'prove' things about Jesus. My point is though that we cannot prove anything about Jesus by subjecting Him to some sort of retrospective first century court case,  we can only draw moral and philosophical lessons from the gospels - to me this is more powerful than attempts to define Him in theological terms, most of which have ended in abject failure. Even if we could 'prove' that Jesus 'was God', whatever that means, most people would just say 'so what?'

    All sounds good. Fresh air and exercise are the cures for pretty much everything, in my experience. It works of stress and creates feel-good natural hormones, and promotes sound sleep.
    Also remember to drink lots of water and hold a good posture. I find watching comedy is good as well to relieve stress, better than reading or watching depressing stuff online. 
    The manosphere is a powerful drug. It's ok in moderation, but I agree you can get too far into it and start second guessing everything. I've got a date coming up with a young lady I met in real life this weekend and once or twice I've caught myself giving her oneitis thoughts (this after having met her once, for about two hours). I had to shake myself out of that and be less detached. If I had never read manosphere websites I wouldn't understand the concept of oneitis however, so as I say it's good to know a little bit about that side of things, just don't get too fixated on it.

    I knew before I even read the article that 'enrichers' would be involved. 
    Mind you, this is the first time in ages I've seen a news article where a physical description of the suspect has been given. For some reason they seem to leave that out nowadays.

    Austin Allegro got a reaction from Alonso Quijano in Bye bye Treason May?   
    He appears to me to be one of the few politicians left who understands that Parliament is there to serve the will of the people, and not the other way round. 
    He also seems to understand how and why it works, and does not treat it as a playground for the promotion of fashionable causes and 'issues' as so many MPs do.

    Austin Allegro got a reaction from Great Guy in The normalisation of female obesity   
    There's a rather funny novel called Beware of Men with Moustaches set in a fictional Balkan republic. One of the characters remarks that 'eastern European women are like gazelles...but British women are like carthorses'. 
    I do think there's something genetic in the British stock that tends to obesity. For example an old girlfriend of mine, twenty years ago, was a typical woman of Saxon/Viking stock, solidly built with massive knockers, big arm and thigh muscles etc. I get updates from her on Facebook still and she's now in her early forties and seems to be non-stop doing triathlons, swimming etc. She's definitely 'chunky' and I don't think could ever be slim; if she didn't do all that exercise I suspect she'd now be fat enough for a mobility scooter.

    This pissed me off.
     
    This is the organisation behind #VolunteersWeek. Supposed to be encouraging volunteering and community projects. these organisations embedded within the Third Sector pushing politics and particular viewpoints. Sad.

    Immigration is hardly ever mentioned in relation to housing shortages. Granted, it is not the only reason for them, but it is a bloody big one. 
    Immigration is also hardly ever mentioned in relation to population increase. 
    It is also hardly ever mentioned in relation to crime or antisocial behaviour. 
    Nor is it hardly ever mentioned in relation to suppression of wage rises. 
    In fact, if you only consumed the MSM, you could be forgiven for thinking that immigration, (assuming you knew it was happening at all) was an unmixed blessing for the UK, providing skilled workers for Our Wonderful NHS and lots of interesting restaurants.

    Seriously though, it's easy to see why somebody like Donald Trump is such a hate figure for men like that. Unashamedly masculine, go-getting, rich, attractive wife, decision maker, unapologetic about his own views etc.

    Very interesting. I don't have a telly, nor do I listen to the radio much or read the papers. Was this level of analysis shown in the mainstream media? It shows very deft political manoeuvering by Mogg, who seems to be getting rather well notice for someone who claims to be content as a rural backbencher...

    Anthony Trollope in The Way We Live Now described the Robert Maxwell type financier villain of the book, Melmotte, thus (I'm paraphrasing as I can't find the reference); 'there was something in the shrug of his shoulders that suggested sun bleached market squares in Levantine walled towns'.

    Austin Allegro reacted to Bedrag Justesen in Trump's progress   
    Round here it's Marx and Engels.
    I've complained to BBC Wales about their reporting of anti-Trump protests in Cardiff city centre, Cardiff Bay, and Swansea.
    The number of protestors being exaggerated, the selection of featured interviews not being balanced, and allowing, in particular the time spent with coverage from the protest at the Senedd to be completely out of proportion.
    I've asked them to make clear whether interviewees are stating an official position, or their personal opinion.
    An editorial decision was made by somebody to achieve a blatant narrative overly negative to Trump.
    In contrast, ITV Wales managed to represent both sides, interviewing Neil Hamilton, and vox pops that expressed positive views about Trump.
    BBC Wales coverage was unfair and unrepresentative.

    Women respond to displays of wealth on a visceral level irrespective of whether they consciously care about money. So if the guy has any sort of viability then the chicks are getting wet over him.
    Think of it like, when a woman looks at a pile of cash, flashy car etc, its feels like what you experience when looking at a nice pair of tits.

    Austin Allegro got a reaction from Kilham in Trump's progress   
    I think the main reason Trump is disliked is because he doesn't play the politics game. He is, basically, not a politician. For the last 25 years or so, certainly since the fall of the USSR, politics has simply been centrism, trying to please everyone by kow-towing to every fashionable cause and going along with every demand. Politicians became little more than feel-good soundbite merchants and models for t-shirts showing the latest politically correct slogan. Trump is the first world leader since Thatcher to be an adult, to have  his own mind and to simply say 'No'.

    Up until the 1960s that was the norm for most men. They did National Service or before that served in the two world wars, in the nineteenth century there was the Territorials and many men hunted, shot or were members of gun clubs, fitness clubs etc; or they did intense physical labour as part of their employment.  The last 50 years or so has seen a progressive decline in any 'masculine' activities to the point that 'soy boys' just become the norm.

    So, a few hundred years ago, tptb decided that the land needed clearing to make way for sheep and hunting. Roll forward to now and they decide that thisnt was such a good idea and so bring unproductive people in from far flung lands. 
    Superb.

    It's not identity politics, it's the wrong sort of identity politics. In a multicultural society you have to strongly identify with and favour your own race. Fail to do this and they'll eat you alive. 
    That guy has been POZed to death by cultural Marxism. He has to break out of the cult and start fighting back.
