    Austin Allegro got a reaction from Ina in Fuckin' Weather   
    Since moving to a small village in the country, I have found that bad weather does not bother me so much. Every day I go out walking in the countryside and it's always good to be out, seeing and hearing different things in nature whether it's sunny or p*ssing it down. 
    I wonder if a lot of our obsession with getting a bit of sun is because too many of us live outside of nature, in towns and cities surrounded by concrete. So the only way our bodies know that spring is on the way is if we can see sunlight through the gaps in the buildings and flyovers.

    Austin Allegro reacted to Captain Cavey in Islamification of Europe   
    For the full experience, I presume that she’ll be kept in a side room whilst only the boys are allowed to the main event.

    Austin Allegro got a reaction from swissy_fit in Tax avoidance - a moral duty?   
    One possibility is to join and support the Taxpayers' Alliance, which campaigns for transparency and fair taxation. In the USA there is much more awareness of 'your tax dollars at work'. In the UK there is still the idea that there is such a thing as 'public' or 'government' money when there is no such thing, it all comes from us, the taxpayer, and nothing that any taxpayer gets from the government is 'free'.

    Austin Allegro got a reaction from Carl Fimble in Tax avoidance - a moral duty?   
    My method is to minimise income (to minimise tax payment), live frugally and buy second hand etc etc.
    I do think it's important to 'give something back' though, but do this by involvement in local charities, community projects, church etc. 
    I'm currently involved in a local project that will hopefully be of great benefit to my village but which doesn't involve any state entities. It helps strengthen the community and reinforce localism which I think is important as the globalists try to turn the country into a dumping ground for the world's flotsam and jetsam.

    Austin Allegro got a reaction from Kilham in Another day, another Nazi story on the So-Called BBC   
    Mentally it's the same attitude as that refugees welcome woman who was raped by a refugee and didn't report it because she didn't want to appear racist. 
    These people would rather the entirety of western Christian civilisation collapsed than that they should be thought to be 'racist' or 'nazi'.

    Some civil service stuffed shirt was whining today about how the government campaigns against illegal immigration were 'reminiscent of the nazis'. 
    'Nazi' has just become like 'racist', ie, a catch all term for anything they don't like or anything which is even moderately opposed to total open borders globalism. 
    It's an insult to those, including members of my own family, that gave their lives to defeat national socialism.

    Austin Allegro got a reaction from The Idiocrat in Everyday Feminism - lunatic SJWness   
    BBC and the Guardian have got that sewn up I think.

    Austin Allegro got a reaction from swissy_fit in Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?   
    I think one reason why Peterson is something of a hate figure is that the reactionary left can sense there is something wrong with him, but they can't pin him down or label him (and thus they cannot easily dismiss him as a racist, nazi, right winger, anti-feminist etc). Cathy Newman tried it but got dazzled by simple logic and rational argument. 
    The sad thing is that Peterson does have a label - one which he has given himself - which is that of classical British liberal - but the haters have no real idea what this is.

    I suspect the so-called Beeb are pushing the Windrush story because it makes it look like the government is actually clamping down on immigration, when it isn't. 
    The older generation of west Indian immigrants are generally liked, most of them seem to have old fashioned British values of Queen and Country and many are active in church life. If the Beeboids can make out that government policy is damaging people like that, then it can subtly denigrate all forms of immigration control.

    Fuck that's a brilliant idea.
    Sorry I didn't think of that actually.
    I'll love to run something, preferably legal, to skim a load of money from SJW types and Feminists.

    Austin Allegro got a reaction from twocents in Here we go...Chemical weapons kill 70 Syria   
    I suspect a lot of this kind of thing is going on, without the 'marks' even really realising what is happening. 
    Bribery and corruption is not always a case of passing envelopes stuffed with banknotes - that is why it is so insidious. 
    Eg, Sir Ben Kingsley appeared in (presumably paid to do so) that recent Saudi funded film/exhibition that claimed the Muslims had invented most things before the west did. 
    Now, Sir Ben probably just thought he was helping combat ignorance and Islamophobia, or something, but he's still taking the Saudi shilling, as far as I'm concerned.

    Austin Allegro got a reaction from onlyme in Screwing the young just a little bit more   
    Good for you.
    An eye opener for me was a business book from about 1900 (I've forgotten the name but it was one of those New Thought/positive thinking books, possibly by William Walker Atkinson) He said that being an employee should be viewed as a great opportunity to learn about business while being paid and not subject to financial risk, but only as a preliminary to becoming one's own boss.

    Austin Allegro got a reaction from One percent in Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?   
    I noticed that. It's also a misunderstanding (like Cathy's lobsters) about what he is actually saying. Peterson's message is not that the most important thing is that we should stand up straight or clean our rooms, it is that change cannot be effected without self discipline and that we should sort our own problems out before attempting to help others. Gandhi is thought to have put it a similar way: 'be the change that you want to see in the world'. I somehow don't think the So-Called BBC would call Gandhi's advice 'quaint'. 
    The article also has a lot of subtle BBC putdowns, linking Peterson to all sorts of dodgy ideas and causes without directly saying he is part of them.
