Welcome to Auckland @Ruff.

Good that you got the suncream on yesterday - overcast is silent burn. At least today you know you are in the sun :-) Go for a wander by the sea if you can. Absorbs huge amounts of stress if you let it.

Looking forward to your pronunciation. I'll bet it's not that bad :-)

@ata

You are completely schmucking my mountainous seas meme there buddy.

And sharks. Huge hungry sharks.

Did I mention the mountainous seas?

It's only kiwifruit and feijoas if you can make it past the mountainous seas. And the sharks.

Then you get us.

Battling to not work anymore!

There are many ways to view our employment problems. When we were kids, all of us, all of our friends, worked at something, somewhere. The entire summers were filled will jobs, low paying but we were able to keep in school and pay our bills.

I was considering the past, again today. What we all had was something like "an inner drive to survive". I do not see that in the youth of today. We did not have heath insurance, dental insurance, and very few had any car insurance. Our country dentist would pull or fill a tooth for $5 and you could pay latter. I remember owing him $20 and I now hope that I paid him about 60 years ago. Doctor P. lived down the street and most of his patients used the barter system if they had zero cash.

Yep, we were a herd of poor kids but really did not understand poverty. We worked the berry fields, loading chickens upon trucks at nighttime, pumped gas at several stations on I-5, washed dishes at cafes, stacked wood and mowed lawns and anything else to survive. It was just wonderful and I am thankful for those days and would not change anything.

Now, these days, everywhere I look, jobs, jobs, and more jobs. The youth are on their phones or marching as snowflakes on the streets. Hands on jobs are needing people and there are not bodies to fill the positions.

So I have this inner battle, saying: "Well, I am in good health, no bills, enough coming in to make things work, and people still want to hire us to build/remodel for them. I should just jump back into the working stream, make big fiat again, knowing how I have enjoyed working from back in the 1950's. " Then I remember my age and think "why get involved, am I nuts?"

For he who has the inner drive of survival, like my grandparents had, and flowed into me, there is no deliverance available and I will look forward to our new bicycle vacation in Idaho. Jim

Iran v KSA

not sure if I posted this back in January of this year.

I was at intimate dinner with a CIO of a Major investment firm in Canada. I don't drink at these functions as I find when everyone else gets a bit of talking water in them and you can glean interesting information if you are listening.

Long stroy short, this guy is middle eastern and raised in the UK. Went to private school etc. Best friend is a Energy minister of one of the Countries in the news. He was invited to attend a private meeting with Saudi, Iranian, Iraqi, UAE and Yemen energy Ministers and High level government officials. Put a towel on his head and he fits right in if you get my drift.

He gets to be a fly on the wall at this meeting. It is helpful to him as he gives direction and insight to investment professional who manage money for his firm. Having a good inside view on the oil market would be helpful

It was agreed at this meeting that if price of energy was not above $60 a barrel by fall of 2017 then Iran and KSA would start a skirmish.

I took that info and shared with clients as they were making allocations to sectors this year. I told them that it was hearsay as I was not there and he could be embellishing. On the other hand I had no reason to believe he was lying to me.

Well here we are 10 months later, I have my notes that Iran and KSA would be at each other and lo and behold

For fun look up the Mckinsley(?) report on the wash rinse and repeat that KSA is going to do with their stock sale

Just 4 U know Who

Bombshell! Roy Rogers Posthumously Implicated in Sexual Misconduct with Horse

Bombshell! Roy Rogers Posthumously Implicated in Sexual Misconduct with Horse

Trigger "Triggered" by Weinstein Controversy

"My rear-quarters were patted." c. 2017 S.A.P. (spiritualist associated press)

Famed psychic/meduim Maureen Handcock recently held a seance to contact the famous horse, Trigger, to find out how he was enjoying the afterlife.

"Trigger, Roy Rogers' beautiful Golden Palomino stallion, and co-star with Roy in many of his movies and Roy's TV show, was often billed as "the smartest horse in the movies".The two of them appeared in dozens of westerns in the 1930s and 40s, always chasing and thwarting the bad guys, and working to serve peace and justice.

Trigger even shared the movie title with Roy on two occasions: My Pal Trigger (1946) and Trigger, Jr. (1950).

Smiley Burnette, who played Roy's sidekick in his first two films, was watching and mentioned how quick on the trigger this horse was. Roy agreed and decided that Trigger was the perfect name for the horse. Roy purchased the horse for $2,500 and eventually outfitted it with a $5,000 gold/silver saddle."

Among other things meduim Maureen Handcock wanted to know was, if Trigger had gone to "purgatory" first before entering heaven. Trigger, billed as the smartest horse to ever live said "No!"

Trigger was also asked how he was treated by Roy Rogers and Dale Evans and that's when things really heated up. Trigger reportedly told Maureen that after his performances Roy would remove his briddle and saddle and pat his side towards his rear-end telling him what a good horse he was. He said that Dale Evans would also do the same thing when they were both together with him."Come to think of it, it was definitely sexual misconduct by Rogers and Evans," Trigger added. "I felt embarrassed and degraded." "They both treated me like I was some kind of an animal or something,"

.........refused to take steps to expose one predator,..........

The Catholic Church Has Used Almost $4 Billion Settling Child Molestation Lawsuits

https://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com/top-news/church-donations-go-cat...

“This is a pope who has refused to take steps to expose one predator or punish one enabler. . . . He could simply defrock, demote, discipline, or even clearly denounce just one complicit bishop. He refuses, not one.”

My 2c:

Where-Oh-where da fk did they git the FOUR BILLION~!!?? In my city we have 12 empty churches/cathedrals. I wonder how the parish priests - who headed those churches - feel about the Pope's use of FOUR THOUSAND MILLION??

Trifecta of Intel Chaos, Shadow Brokers, Wikileaks, NSA

WikiLeaks announces “Vault 8”

Those releases were part of a series of leaks WikiLeaks called Vault 7. Now, WikiLeaks says Hive is just the first of a long string of similar releases, a series WikiLeaks calls Vault 8, which will consist of source code for tools previously released in the Vault 7 series.

The WikiLeaks announcement has sent shivers up the spines of infosec experts everywhere, as it reminded them of April this year when a hacking group named The Shadow Brokers published cyber-weapons allegedly stolen from the NSA.

Some of the tools included in that release have been incorporated in many malware families and have been at the center of all three major ransomware outbreaks that have taken place n 2017 — WannaCry, NotPetya, and Bad Rabbit. More here.

Security Breach and Spilled Secrets Have Shaken the N.S.A. to Its Core

A serial leak of the agency’s cyberweapons has damaged morale, slowed intelligence operations and resulted in hacking attacks on businesses and civilians worldwide

WASHINGTON — Jake Williams awoke last April in an Orlando, Fla., hotel where he was leading a training session. Checking Twitter, the cybersecurity expert was dismayed to discover that he had been thrust into the middle of one of the worst security debacles ever to befall American intelligence.

Mr. Williams had written on his company blog about the Shadow Brokers, a mysterious group that had somehow obtained many of the hacking tools the United States used to spy on other countries. Now the group had replied in an angry screed on Twitter. It identified him — correctly — as a former member of the National Security Agency’s hacking group, Tailored Access Operations, or T.A.O., a job he had not publicly disclosed. Then the Shadow Brokers astonished him by dropping technical details that made clear they knew about highly classified hacking operations that he had conducted.

America’s largest and most secretive intelligence agency had been deeply infiltrated.

“They had operational insight that even most of my fellow operators at T.A.O. did not have,” said Mr. Williams, now with Rendition Infosec, a cybersecurity firm he founded. “I felt like I’d been kicked in the gut. Whoever wrote this either was a well-placed insider or had stolen a lot of operational data.”

The jolt to Mr. Williams from the Shadow Brokers’ riposte was part of a much broader earthquake that has shaken the N.S.A. to its core. Current and former agency officials say the Shadow Brokers disclosures, which began in August 2016, have been catastrophic for the N.S.A., calling into question its ability to protect potent cyberweapons and its very value to national security. The agency regarded as the world’s leader in breaking into adversaries’ computer networks failed to protect its own.

“These leaks have been incredibly damaging to our intelligence and cyber capabilities,” said Leon E. Panetta, the former defense secretary and director of the Central Intelligence Agency. “The fundamental purpose of intelligence is to be able to effectively penetrate our adversaries in order to gather vital intelligence. By its very nature, that only works if secrecy is maintained and our codes are protected.”

With a leak of intelligence methods like the N.S.A. tools, Mr. Panetta said, “Every time it happens, you essentially have to start over.”

Lets play Larkins game "So what are you going to do about it?" You find out that there is a criminal gang in your stateless society. They hold power in their private b run industry which in a stateless society is not regulated because there is no state that regulates. Within this industry there is a ring of sexual deviants sexually assaulting, men, boys and children who work in the industry. But they are silenced. They are silenced by threat of force because some of the perpetrators have hired spies from other states that aren't anarchist. So we have victims without a voice or an authority to turn to to assist them.

You find out through the grapevine and you are one of the millions of people, Larkin refers to that will do something about it. So what are you going to do about it? I am assuming that you are anarccapitalist that allows business in your society to operate freely without regulation or authorities to investigate. The information came to you Me Fix So what are you going to do about it. How are you going to organize a group together with the proper skills in investigative techniques to ascertain evidence. What are you going to to do one you have the evidence. What system of justice will be brought to bear if you have a system At all.

Larkin speaks in vague generalities. Here is your chance to supply specifics. Will you lead the investigation at your own expense or will you seek donations fr the other anarchists on dot. Take out an ad in the paper, looking for volunteerism to investigate a criminal sex ring on your free time,

Whats the plan?

Passionate??

I was thinking about the thousands of posts upon these forums. There have been hundreds of people who have jumped in and then out, for many reasons. Someone will come along, thinking outside the box, and may be viewed as a nut job. Some are stuck in differing ruts and will never escape. So, what is the value of posting over these years?

Well, there is a great value. It helps the individual focus upon what they really believe and why they believe. Some of the posters on DOTS are really difficult to understand and how they came to their positions on several topics. It takes time to sort out all the information given by many active posters. One may think "wow, that person is from another planet".

Did you ever try to figure out "why" you are trying to educate the blind masses? What is it that you are actually passionate about? I had to ask myself the same questions. Mr. Fix and I have stated many times that we do not know of anyone who has been enlightened and changed their position.

I pondered, "what would make me feel like I had actually accomplished something.?" I thought of starting a new forum like: "Things necessary to see the full restoration of the early Church". Yep, I decided that that was my passion. I see the robbery by the antichrist priestcraft and the damage they have done and the steeple houses are basically quiet. Well, if I started that forum, I may be the only one posting and it will take true tribulations to make a change.

What is your real passion? Jim
