Weathering The Current Climate



There’s a large storm brewing in South Australia that will also affect most of the country. I’m wondering how many blackouts South Australia will have to deal with as a large amount of their electricity is generated by so called renewable sources. 

Wind turbines which aren’t the most efficient form of energy generation at the best of times aren’t able to operate in high winds (although fees are still paid to the operators!) and of course solar power is useless when there is no sun.

It’ll be interesting to see how many climate alarmists go on about the storm (a weather event) being the result of climate change (which is they claim is completely separate from the weather) and claim carbon taxes would have somehow stopped it.

If the climate alarmists line is to be believed , the Earth’s climate was static and tranquil until industry started and then everything went crazy.

Of course we know it’s the climate alarmists anti CO2 line that is crazy along with their expectation we’ll believe all the climate fairy tales they make up.

To Be Cultured





















There is not as much bigotry out there as the left would have you believe and their constant cries of racist are no longer working as well for them. They want causes to champion though, preferably ones that are low effort but they can get some little feel-good moment from it.

What do you do when there aren’t any low effort causes to champion? You manufacture them. One such cause is what they call cultural appropriation and a claim that people (usually white people.) are stealing culturally from other groups who are somehow automatically oppressed victims. For example a white person with dreadlocks is considered guilty of cultural appropriation.

Never mind that in the West we live in multicultural societies and are supposed to be celebrating diversity and encouraging togetherness, people (usually white people) apparently should not be adopting a single thing from other cultures. By all means go to the restaurants and enjoy the food but don’t you dare like anything else!

Obviously offensive stereotypes and objectionable cultural practices (such as those that oppress women and restrict freedom) should be stopped but in general the leftist thought police need to be stopped in their tracks. The leftist approach is an attempt at segregating people and keeping them divided. Our countries will never be united with the left’s nonsensical ‘look but don’t touch’ approach. If all cultures and people are supposedly equal then what’s the problem with equals sharing?

But this is the leftist way for you. They try and stop people (usually white people) from looking into other cultures and ways of life and then complain when white people don’t understand the other cultures.

If people are divided the left can more freely spout their nonsense and do all they can to keep certain groups seeing themselves as victims and in need of the left’s ‘guidance’ and ‘protection’. They can also keep you from criticising the cultures that are against freedom and the left really champion.

So just ignore those who cry cultural appropriation. Take the best of what the world has to offer, wear it respectfully and enjoy.

The Left And Their Mythical Gender Pay Gap



















The left are going on about the mythical pay gap again. It’s been shown up for the nonsense that it is over and over and over again.

First of all it’s illegal to pay women less than men and it has been illegal for quite some time.

If it was really cheaper to hire women then the workforce would be full of women. After all businesses exist to make money, they aren’t some big men’s club out to forward some great male patriarchy. If it was cheaper to hire women they would hire them because lower expenses mean higher profits.

Some have complained how the physical requirements for some jobs discriminate against women and that standards should be lowered. If that were the case then businesses would actually be forced to hire more people to make up for a strength shortage and probably go out of business from carrying too high an overhead.

Firefighting is one of these areas that require great strength. From holding a fire hose (it isn’t a garden hose!) to carrying people out of a building. You can’t have people underperforming in disaster situations because they themselves become a liability and put other lives at risk. You have to be up to the task and it’s a task many men aren’t up to either. You can’t have two people carrying an average sized person down a ladder. If anyone has any complaints, refer them to nature. It’s down to evolution as to why some people can’t do certain jobs, not some male patriarchy holding people back.

Men earn more? The gender earnings presented are a collective measure which doesn’t tell you what’s really going on. What it’s down to is the choices many women make from working less hours to raising their children to not wanting to put in the long hours sometimes required to make the big money.

The left bleat about that as well as if those choices are not the best ones to make. From that you could say the left actually don’t want women to make decisions for themselves.

There are many women out there who earn more than men and there are plenty of well-paying heavy jobs many men are not likely to be hired for. Is it any benefit to them they are on the winning side of this so called gender pay gap?

“Geez, I don’t earn anywhere near as much as that lady down the road. She has lots of nice things and I’m barely getting by but hey, at least I’m on the winning side of the gender pay gap………….”

The gender pay gap argument put forward by the left is nothing but another one of their tactics to cause division and distract people from the real problems we are facing and which they themselves are often the ones causing.

Prove Them Wrong, It's Easy.


Being human we sometimes do not respond to things in a logical way or in a way that’s beneficial to us.

There are cases of people being told they will never do well for themselves or they’ll become a criminal by people they should not be listening to. Sometimes it’s people who are supposed to be friends but obviously these people are not friends because friends don’t talk to you like that.

For many of us it’s something we usually ignore. It might be a blow to the ego and it’s not nice to hear but we move on from it. For others though the response is “if this is how they think I’ll be then I’m going to be that way and they’ll be sorry!”

They won’t be sorry though, they’ll be happy you’ve proven them right. They said you’d be that way and lo and behold that is how you’ve turned out.

Sure, you may be able to blame them for what’s happened but that won’t really help you or undo the damage. And given that we are ultimately responsible for ourselves you’ll still be held accountable for your actions.

So here’s how to deal with it, ignore them and prove them wrong. It’s not a matter of becoming the world’s richest person, (but if you can achieve that by all means do so!) it’s just a matter of getting on with your life and dealing with what comes your way.

You don’t have to live up to a bad image others may have of you. If you’re overall not behaving like they claim you are or have just made a mistake and are getting back on track then their comments should be meaningless to you.

Disregard, move on and prove them wrong. And don’t prove them wrong just to get one over them, prove them wrong because it’s in your best interests to do so.
