Doomsday, really?

There are three million millionaires in the USA that do not pay taxes because their assets are registered in tax paradise “countries” around the globe, many have another citizenship, a great prove of patriotism, no doubts about it.

There are also three million doomsday preppers, they have even a convention, a TV series in NatGeo, websites, facebook and social media pages and a whole industry that provides them with all what they need, costly, ridiculously fashioned and very successful but …..what is a doomsday prepper? A doomsday prepper is a guy, working alone, with friends, with his family, that believes de-facto that in case of a catastrophe the federal/state government will not help him/them to survive any life threatment situation, it can be an earthquake, a cyclone, a hurricane, a tsunami, a nuclear plant explossion, economic crisis, a war of any kind, bio threats, nuclear attacks from other countries, terrorism, comets, asteroids, solar flares, magnetic fields, gamma rays and whatever you can put into your imagination.

The rule of thumb is that you need a supply of food, water, energy, a bunker, hundreds of guns and ammunition (easily there) and training to stop any of their hungry citizens that did not prepare for that, to invade your space to take advantage of what you did to protect your family.

My conclusion is simple, there are out there at least six million guys who do not care about their country, government, society, institutions, marines, armed forces, FBI, CIA, NSA, DEA, fellow citizens, for them God Bless America and The Land of the Free are just a songs they sing on baseball games, the only important people are them!

I die for a selfie

On these days, shallow people measure their achievements by the “friends” on social media, the “likes” they get on every post, the amont of “selfies” they make and publish. As I mentioned in other posts, this is what advertising and media want, these are the false values they seed in the absence of family or school values, now vanishing in this modern absurd world, where ficticious needs are created and people embrace them as if it was life or dead.

In a world where now “celebrities” rule, not precisely a role model to follow, people have always taken pictures of themselves, in old times you always could get someone  kindly taking a photo of you (or couple) at a site but the invention of the name “selfie” and the adoption and spreading of it in the showbiz, the paraphernalia around it, has reached ridiculous and unbeareable limits of indecency and bad behavior, showing the dark side of most people.

If you travel, in/out of your Country, you will see bunchs of people arriving to iconic places and in five minutes they get the camera/phone/Ipad out and take selfies, they do not spend but a few seconds looking or enjoying the site, the selfie is enough, no matter if a number of people are there trying to enjoy their visit. Noisy, uneducated, arrogant, jumping and screaming all over the place, the goal is the selfie, not the place. A paralell can even be made for most of those 4×4 aficionados running with their expensive machines anywhere just for the fun of 4×4, all what they say about the places they visit is bullshit (just a way to justify the absence of crowds) , they do not admire the scenery or anything, only their machines, they do not even  take photos, only if it is a TV program.

This behavior is turning worse by the day, as this recent report in Costa Rica shows

Selfies or selfishness is reaching extremes that only human race (Homo porcinus) is capable of doing. What is next? Anything is possible.

Man is a freak of Nature, a mistake in Evolution.

Refugees, a global issue?

Does Australian politicians know what are they doing bringing 12.000 refugees into the Country? Are they simply improvising and succumbing under the international pressure of those powerful countries that start or favor wars….as a business? Australia’s economy is mainly based on mining, real estate and retailers, the workers floating around the incredible (artificial) high prices of housing are probably the best paid at the moment, many are making billions, the government lowers interest rates (to historical low values) and make them richer…. and other people poorer, gess who?. But Australia has many other problems, as any other country, public services are deteriorating rapidly, especially health services, leaving people without jobs and tax payers without assistance, there are many people living on Centrelink benefits, legally or not (tax payers money), jobs are hard to find, electricity bills are the highest in the world, obesity, drug consumption and alcohol are serious growing problems that increase pressure on public heath. While government policies (any party) go in one direction (the best paid politicians in the world), the economy goes the other way and they do not seem to understand it or look the other way. Fighting other countries wars and getting as counterpart the consequences of it in terms of war expenses, death soldiers and lots of refugees does not seem the right way to go, at least for me….and I sceptic, solidarity among humans only works one way….

The attached video has been circulating on the web and social media for a while. Terrorism and wars are justified by arguments of religious fanaticism, that rather than uniting people promote the destruction of Nature’s Biodiversity to bring the population of the world into chaos and disaster.

Spitting up and using an umbrella to avoid splashing us has been the behavior so far, we are deaf and blind to the reality before us.

The invasion of Islam is not only by wars, such as the Moors did in Europe in the VIII century, it  is being conducted quietly thanks to selfishness, ignorance and stupidity of mankind, with the complicity of politicians, governments and economic power.

We are heading back to a new era of Middle Ages in the 21st century, the only thing that might stop it is the continuous transformation of The Planet through natural disasters that might level it up.

More than 90 % of the species that have existed on the Earth are extinct, we are one of them that eventually will become extinct in the short or medium term. Earth still has 4.5 billion years to go, perhaps less selfish and more intelligent species will emerge and will go back to explain our absurd behavior.
