Such things have happened both ways throughout the centuries.

 

It's an interesting sign of the times regardless. Also interesting that you choose to focus on a minor news post about Christians while ignoring everything else. I think you dropped your fedora.

You see, this is where we can hurt such an institution. 

 

No mask no money.

 

No money, then fuck you, I'll take my business elsewhere. Now hand it over dick head, before I pull you over the counter and fill you in! 

 

Grinds my fuckin gears. We all could end them with a click of the fingers. Cuntz!

 

And relax. 

Exactly, any institution pisses me off I'm gone, but people are lazy, they put up with shit because it's a lot  easier than doing something about it and that's what these assholes rely on. If I was with HSBC ,my doe would be gone that day or the next after a statement like that.

I was with an institution for 15 years ,my wife used the wrong account and we were overdrawn by $1.25, and for that they charged me $45 overdrawn fee ,in those days the notification was sent by letter in red text, anyway you can imagine the phone call,I had never been over drawn in my life to this point and never again since. I said to the manager, over the last 15 or so years you have made a lot of doe out of me and now you want to further slug me $45 for the privilege of a loan of $1.25, if you don't rescind that charge I'm gone. Then he comes back with since you have been a good customer we are prepared to waver the $45 fee just this once, I love that statement (just this once), as if they are doing you a favor. Anyway I said send a letter to confirm that fact within a week ,which they did obviously thinking the matter would be finished and for most people the matter would have ended there and they would of been happy and content they had had a small victory against their respective bank or financial institution .

The very day the letter arrived, I went down to the bank, checked my accounts to make sure my $45 was indeed put back in, told the bank manager personally to get fucked and closed all my accounts.

If people weren't so complacent, things would have to change but unfortunately every time the people are told to bend over the majority do so willingly  without a second thought

 

PS I hope the one's I'm with now don't piss me off as there isn't too many left I can bank with

Yes I think we are fucked , at the very least things will become  much much worse before they get better.

 

your statement They're all fucking idiots. This has perplexed me for a long time, back in my day the average person in the street was intelligent enough but if you put these people in a group their collective IQ would seem to bottom out for some reason and they invariably become as smart as the lowest common denominator, fast forward to now with the advent of social media, the groups are getting larger and larger and people are becoming more idiotic by the hour, or appear to be.

Maybe peoples intelligence is inversely proportional to the size of the group that they belong to.

Maybe there are two states of intelligence

1 individual intelligence

2 collective idiocy

Since the social groups are getting bigger this would push collective idiocy to the fore and so would be the predominant example in society today.

Which brings me to the next statement which was used on my kids to great effect (for Christ sake  start thinking for your self )

Anyway ,just my thoughts

Denmark sets a target of ZERO asylum seeker applications to protect 'social cohesion'

I thought social cohesion was a bad thing these days. Something is a miss about this.

Shipping crisis: I'm being quoted £10,000 for a £1,600 container'

Quote

"We were paying £1,600 per container in November, this month we've been quoted over £10,000," says Helen White.

The founder of start-up Houseof.com, which imports lighting from China, says the rise in shipping costs means she's making a loss on what she sells.

She's one of many UK importers facing soaring freight costs amid a global shipping crisis that may last months.

A shortage of empty shipping containers in Asia and bottlenecks at the UK's deep sea ports are behind the problems.

It was hoped the backlogs could be cleared during the Chinese New Year holiday in February, but instead a coronavirus outbreak in China is adding to the uncertainty facing firms.

From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-55740063

 

Here's a novel solution to this problem, why not start manufacturing these kinds of products a bit closer to home? 🤔

 

Sure, they may cost more to produce here, but the outrageous shipping container costs can at least be saved.

Cut it out Grumpy ,your not supposed to state the obvious, but in this present day an age I don't think you would have done too much physiological damage to society at large, unfortunately!  🤫

They certainly didn't. 

 

The question is, if the founding fathers were alive today, would they accept being raped like this by a bunch of fascist, communist criminals - force muzzled, force vaccinated, having their government stolen via rigged election, having all their patriot brothers and sisters threatened with reeducation/concentration camps? Would they accept being constantly told to take all this up the arse whilst lying down and peacefully submitting?

 

Or, would they have taken up arms already and seized their country back and executed all the traitors for high treason?

 

Why is everyone so pacified now, when our ancestors would never have stood for this shit? Doesn't add up.

They sold the country out anyway, I wouldn't place faith in a bunch of Crown agents. The appearance of freedom doesn't necessarily mean you've been free to begin with. The constitution included slavery terms for Christ sakes. History has been rewritten many times and the founding of that countries history has been buried. Further selling out happened through periods of time. Most notably 1913 with the introduction of the federal reserve.

I guess we're screwed then.
