Sanctuary bays

Sometimes, I’m not sure about where I am on a topic, a topic for example such as Mallows Bay Sanctuary:

From what I can gather, the PTB decided that this was to be a sanctuary, so they hauled a whole lot of old ships there and sank them.  Now no one can go there.

My ambivalence is that, being a closet semi-greenie, I love wilderness and nature being allowed to freely do what it does best.  However, this seems quite contrived and when Man, especially Left Man, starts interfering, w-e-e-e-l-l-l-l …

Calling all knowledgeable readers – the legal underpinning of the English speaking world

We ask the easy ones here.

If a blog is a two way street, just a tool to find out the truth on things, then let’s test that out. Chap has written and thrown a curved ball, so to speak. I know some but am not an authority, some of you out there might be able to comment on one or two of these – I’d like to get a reply to him in this way [point him to the url]. See what you think:

I am a Brit and live in New Zealand and I came across your very interesting website last night. I am an amateur legal/lawful researcher as in New Zealand things about power are seemingly easier to see, less sophisticated than the UK. I think New Zealanders are distracted by sport, but that is just my opinion.

I was wondering if I could ask your opinion on some issues, I will put them in order for clarity:

NASA

So, what have we actually got on our hands here?

A British teenager has contacted scientists at Nasa to point out an error in a set of their own data. A-level student Miles Soloman found that radiation sensors on the International Space Station (ISS) were recording false data.

The 17-year-old from Tapton school in Sheffield said it was “pretty cool” to email the space agency. The correction was said to be “appreciated” by Nasa, which invited him to help analyse the problem.

“What we got given was a lot of spreadsheets, which is a lot more interesting than it sounds,” Miles told BBC Radio 4’s World at One programme.

I’d refer back to two things:

1. In Tenerife, on that KLM plane, the young Flight Engineer noticed the Captain was wrong in his judgement of the situation prior to takeoff. That Captain had almost flown his full time quota for the day, he was a decorated and feted man, featured in flight magazines, he was a KLM hero.… More here ...

Female trouble

For the first part of ‘Female Trouble‘, there were only things on Muslims, Africans and the like.

Then came this:

A better answer may be that this is the inevitable result of the feminization of Western civilization. The most important country in Europe is ruled by a barren old woman who started out in life as a communist.

The most masculine politician in France is Marie Le Pen. Germany’s opposition party is led by a mousy little wood nymph named Frauke Petry.

Even the Brits turned to a woman to lead them out of Europe after the Brexit vote and the collapse of Cameron’s government. The West is now a matriarchy.

Not all he writes is spot on and this analysis is a bit frayed around the edges – for example, what about Trump, Orban?  Were you to look at Erdogan, you’d probably prefer Le Pen.… More here ...

Films to avoid

They keep churning them out:

I don’t watch much of anything if it isn’t on Netflix, but I happened to be scrolling through On Demand and decided to give TV Land’s “Teachers” a go. It’s in its second season, but I just discovered it.

Lately, everything on TV is pushing some super political agenda with the gaying of everything, the transgendering of everyone, and abortions as a sacramental event (I’m looking at you “Scandal”). I’m physically and emotionally exhausted from all the agenda pushing on TV that stomps on half of America’s values.

Most times I feel like screaming at the TV: “I EXIST! And I’m NOT a caricature of a Christian shut-in who’s super judgmental, hates gay people, and has a gun rack in her truck.”

Well I am – super judgmental in fact.  Judge not that ye be not judged?  Go ahead, judge away and I’ll own when I’m in the wrong.  That having been said, entertainment is ruined today with the politics being forcefed in by the left, it’s killed off ‘entertainment’ for me.… More here ...
