~~

George Walker Bush (born July 6, 1946) is an American businessman and politician who was the 43rd President of the United States of America from 2001 to 2009.

~~

IN ONE WORD: PIOUS

~~

Exposition:

~~

 

At seminary, I was largely absent, and always inattentive and, yet, I learned a great deal through what, I think the scientists call, osmosis.

 

~~

 

Yes, that was it:

 

~~

 

Osmosis.

~~

What the men of science call it.

~~

 

By osmosis, I remember this:

~~

“The man who has never seen the Devil cannot ever fully desire to know Jesus.”

~~

I am not sure if that is Scripture Herself, or the ruminations of an inventive, and very talented, priest, of which we had a few, but the answer to that doesn’t matter here.

~~

What does matter is this message:

~~

Attend carefully to it.

~~

Earlier, and from time to time throughout this epistle, I have touched upon the devil in the bottle that has ruined so many men:

~~

Including many Presidents.

~~

One such who met that devil, but had the very good fortune to escape His Evil Embrace, is George Walker Bush.

~~

What other things may be said, in favour and in anger, of George Walker Bush:

~~

This cannot be said:

~~

During his 8 tumultuous years in office he did not flee back to the easy path of comfort afforded by the Devil in the bottle.

 

September, 14, 2001

~~

He was true to his vow to forswear the Devil in the bottle, true to his lovely wife, Laura, one of the really magnificent First Ladies of our History, and above all else, true to God Jesus.


~~

To those unmoved by this observation, let me say–kindly take, by osmosis–here this message:

~~

“The man who has never seen the Devil, cannot ever fully desire to know Jesus.”

~~

REFLECTIONS:

~~

I have never known a man, in all my journeys through this fascinating life who, at one time or another, has not had to look in the shaving glass and stare down that Devil in the eye.
 
~~
 
Mr. Reagan did:
 
 
~~
 
Mr. Reagan told me of that session in the glass:
 
 
~~
 
It was not pretty:
 
 
~~
 
And that cold, hard, look in the shaving glass, requires that a man be very brave.
 
 
~~
George Walker Bush looked squarely in that glass and he did not flinch from its message.
 
~~
 
That is more than enough good work for all of one man’s life.

    "Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he's the only one who's sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~

Humility~

The seducers, the glib talkers, the ambitious ones, sense, correctly, that the coming political season is wide open.
 
~~
We wonder if the ambitious ones were made aware, that:
~~
Humility is what the people, most properly, seek in a leader, how thick the field of seducers would remain?
 
Here is the Message:
 
~~
 
Humility is what the people seek in a leader.
 
~~
 
Humility is driven principally by this recognition:
 
~~
 
The recognition that mortal man is very limited in his capacity to do very much and that:
 
~~
 
The very best we all can do is to:
 
~~
 
Try to do the very best we can do:
~~
With what:
~~
The Almighty has given to us.

Violette Elizabeth Reine Sazbo: A beautiful life, a courageous death of Martyrdom for all mankind, an eternity Above~in Heaven~

Image

~~It Violette Reine Elizabeth Sazbo
~~ 
It is imperative that thinking man periodically take an account of himself, to examine himself and to consider this question:
~~
Who really merits historical note?
~~
Most particularly, is the need for this self-examination manifestly imperative, when we look around the city of Washington, seat of power of the now transcendent Empire.
~~
Here, at that city, one is daily witness to so many Tin Gods, ever clamoring to remembered by Lady History.
 
~~
 
Even at Washington, real life now and then intervenes and we are most thankful today to:
 
~~
 
The ‘Bedfordshire On Sunday’ website is www.seriousaboutnews.co.uk and their mailing address is 22 Mill Street, Bedford, MK40 3HD:
~~
For their having been kind enough to introduce a Lady of History who has been long neglected, or perhaps, to many readers, never known about at all:
~~
Violette Reine Elizabeth Szabo, GC, née Bushell, (26 June 1921 – c. 5 February 1945) was the daughter of an English father and French mother, and widow of a French army officer killed in action in North Africa in 1942, who served during World War II as an SOE agent on two missions in occupied France.
~~
On her second mission she was captured by the Germans, interrogated and tortured, and deported to Germany where she was eventually executed at Ravensbrueck concentration camp.
~~
Violette did not need to give herself up to die.
~~
She could have ducked out of the War altogether.
~~
Instead, in equal parts motivated by French patriotism and her personal hatred of Hitler, she willing endured great danger, and, at her end, likewise endured, what we used to call martyrdom:
~~
We ask ourselves today:
~~
Is there anymore such a thing as:
~~
God-Led:
~~
Martyrdom?
~~
Please now read, and closely attend to the story of:

 

Violette Elizabeth Reine Sazbo:

~~
Who, very bravely, gave her life so that others could live in:
~~
Freedom~~

Mr. Clinton’s restless, lifelong, passion to be loved.~

A Young Bill Clinton meets a young Jack Kennedy.
~~
Both Mr. Clinton and Mr. Kennedy were driven by ambitions they could not control, and, very likely, did not spend much time trying to sort out, either.
~~
Mr. Kennedy’s burning ambition was to fulfill:
~~
Ambition Herself.
~~
Mr. Clinton had a more complex ambition: the burning desire to be:
~~
Loved.
~~
Of the two men, Jack Kennedy had, far and away, the easier ambition to gratify.
~~
Mr. Clinton’s ambition was, by comparison, much more difficult to gratify.
~~
For how does one man contrive to have other men love him?
~~
Jack simply wanted to be elected, a  comparatively simple to do.
~~
Mr. Clinton wanted to be loved.
~~
Very tough business, that, getting other men to love you.
Of course, both men reasoned to themselves that the rainbows that they chased would lead to the only pot of gold any man really wants to find:
~~
Which is say, to unearth, not merely Gold, but rather:
~~
Happiness Herself.
~~
I hear that there are those who have a burning desire to possess the physical element called:
~~
Gold Herself.
~~
For myself, I will say that, I find this desire to stock up tonne upon tonne of gold herself, peculiar.
~~
I am however cautioned that there are famous men of history who do love the physical element of gold herself.
~~
One such man, I understand, was:
Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, beyond dispute, well into the very top-tier of, the greatest artists of all time.
~~
I must ask:
~~
Why would a man who could paint this:
The Creation of Adam:
~~
Care a tinker’s damn about this?

I do wish that I shared Michelangelo’s:
~~
Talents as an artist.
~~
As those made him immortal, which would be a swell thing to be, provided of course, that one is made immortal, meaning never to be forgotten, for the proper reasons.
~~
Other men are immortal, meaning never to be forgotten, for very much the wrong reasons.
~~
In our century, Mr Hitler, Mr Stalin and Mr Mao of the Chinese, have made themselves immortal, meaning, never to be forgotten, but we do not envy them, at least, I hope that we do not envy them.
~~
Do you envy them?
~~
I hope you don’t and if you do, I’d hope this note will make you re-consider what affections you might hold for these awful little men of our century.
~~
As, while they have made themselves immortal and never to be forgotten, I certainly do not envy them.
~~
As Lovey says herself:
~~
“Envy is a very touchy thing in the best of cases, John Begg, because if you think about it, you really cannot say if Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, or for that matter, anyone else, is happy or not.”
~~
Brilliant girl, Lovey, top shelf.
~~
La Crema y Nata.
~~
I cannot think what I could ever do without her.
~~
This side of God Jesus, Lovey is the only indispensable figure in my life.
~~
Lovey is my sunlight in the morning, my candle in the night.
~~
It is of course possible that I have met a happy man, but I can’t remember doing it.
~~
Holy Priests say that man is not supposed to be happy of this earth.
~~
In fact, the Holy Priests tell me that man is on this earth to suffer and in so doing, gain salvation.
~~
I am not a Holy Theologian and I will demure to comment on all that, but to say this:
~~
If Our Saviour in Heaven desires that His Children suffer upon this Earth so that they may wash away the stain of Adam’s Sin:
~~
I can remark, on having traveled widely about His Globe down here and seen for myself the terrible suffering of His Children, that, we can all expect that Heaven will be a very, very crowded Garden when we all arrive there.
~~
He has said that He has gone ahead to prepare a place for us and I am very happy of that thought.
~~
I hope he builds, as He says:
~~
Many Mansions in His Father’s House as:
~~
If suffering upon the earth is the key to Salvation with Him in the Garden above later on, many of His Children are praying here principally for their own, private, Mansion in His Garden above.
~~
I’ll leave, of course, the details to Him and His Construction Men.
~~
I am quite sure that I am not alone in saying that there are certain conversations and comments one takes with him through this life that remain ever with us and ever startling.
~~
From the very first day of the very first grade of school, I detested school and never stopped detesting it.
~~
So, Saint’s forgive, before I leave Jesus and His construction men to building our Mansions in Heaven, have a think about this:
~~
I must recall for you a remarkable comment made to me by Mr. Eugene O’Neill, Senior, whose property bordered my father’s own when we were but wee ones.
~~
Mr. O’Neill, Senior, was a man of his Era:
~~
He had tasted both the Depression and the War, in the European theater, and, after the War, he had come home to the most remarkable, most giddily happy, most glorious, two decades in the history, not merely of America, but of:
~~
The Entire World.
~~
Mr Eugene O’Neill loved to cook steaks for all on his backyard bar-bee-que and drink as much National Bohemian Beer as was possibly imaginable to do without just floating away.
~~
Some of my father’s contemporaries disliked Mr. O’Neill very much indeed and reckoned that he would not live to an advanced age.
~~
He lives to this day and he has buried the lot of them–all of those who felt themselves his moral betters.
~~
As I’d no fondness for my Daddy, I had conversations with Mr. O’Neill that boys in happier households might well have had with their own Daddies.
~~
Somehow, of hot summer’s day with the beer flowing freely, in a time now, very sadly, lost to Lady History, Mr. O’Neill and I discussed Heaven and Hell and he said something to me that I’ll never forget, that I found at first hearing it and have thought ever after was, a simply remarkable thought.
~~
As we are all friends here, in our clubhouse, and do not stand on ceremony here, as good friends do not, I will share this thought with you now.
~~
Mr. O’Neill said:”Young Beggs, in the end, God let’s us all His Children into Heaven.”
~~
I couldn’t believe it.
~~
I was nonplussed, startled.
~~
Flabbergasted.
~~
I recall saying,
~~
“But, Sir, what about the really evil, really bad, men of History?”
~~
“For example Mr Hitler, against whom you personally fought so bravely and at great risk–do you mean to say Mr Hitler will go to Heaven?”
~~
He said:
~~
“Yes, John, God will in the end let everybody into heaven and the men we call very bad and terrible, God will consider as insane and forgive them.”
~~
Remarkable.
~~
Simply remarkable.
~~
It is, of course, very difficult to say how it is that a man carries with him throughout his life a vivid memory of something early said to him, that to others, may well have been, very quickly, forgotten.
~~
I couldn’t say why, but I do know that conversation of Heaven and Hell, on that hot summer day now many year’s gone, amidst beer and bar-bee-que, rang some sort of bell in my brain that I most certainly would never have had rung at any school.

~~

We will, likewise now, leave Holy Priests in their Churches to ponder if that tenet of theirs concerning worldly sorrow leading to Eternal Happiness be true or no.

 
 
~~
 
In the world, away from the Church and Her Holy Priests, all men are desperate for happiness.
 
 
~~
 
 
Consider:
~~
Advertising men sell only one thing to us:
 
~~
 
HAPPINESS.
~~
The Communists say that advertising men create false desire, but the Communists have never been right about anything, so why should they ruin their unblemished batting average here–in my clubhouse?
~~
No risk of trouble there: as man desires, independent of advertising men, who simply attempt to sell specific rainbows and pots of gold to a world already quite thirsty for both:
~~
I’m so sorry:
 Mr. Karl Heinrich Marx.
~~
The French say that the only thing more important in a man’s life, over and above his valet, is his barber.
I suppose that, had life’s circumstances forced upon me the need to share Mr. Marx’s valet and barber, I too, in righteous anger and fury, might have written to you today, not this note of sweet reminiscences, but rather, something as horrid as Mr. Marx’s Capital.
~~
A subject about which Mr.Marx knew:
~~
Absolutely…
~~
Nothing at all.
~~
My review of Mr. Marx’s, Capital, ended with my very brief, but somehow appearing to me, odious long, review.
~~
As is my custom, I then hurled Mr Marx’s merry novella, Capital, at somebody in the room who very much annoyed me and, in so doing, accomplished two, very gratifying, things:
~~
Annoying my present day irritant and consigning Mr. Marx and his Capital to well-deserved oblivion.
~~
I had occasion to have a talk, or rather a listen, as he talked and I pretended to listen, with the diminutive, Mr. Perot, who does, indisputably, know something about capital.
~~
Mr Perot startled me to say that he hated other people because “they haven’t any money and money is so easy to make if you want some.”
Mr. Perot, at center, has a pleasant word or two with my boss and Mr. Perot’s old pal, Mr. Bush, as Mr. Clinton, impatiently, obsessively, looks for love.
~~
Mr Perot is neither tall nor, I think, very intelligent, but he does, indubitably, have a head for figures or whatever else it is that goes into the making of a capitalist.
~~
And, so it is Mr. Marx, that you and I, who know nothing about being a capitalist, ought be polite and attend closely when, somebody who does know about these things, speaks to us about it.
~~
Mr Perot didn’t annoy me near at all as much as did Mr Marx and his Capital, but I was taken to note that Mr Perot fidgets.
~~
Fidgets quite a bit actually, when he speaks:
~~
Fidgets as though he found it necessary to be ever in motion in order to call up to his head what his heart was trying to get him to say.
~~
Many have handed me books to read and review over the years and I early developed, of my own account, a very frugal manner of review.
~~
I read the first paragraph, close my eyes and open the book to a page somewhere near its center and:
~~
Read another paragraph there, and:
~~
Then turn to the last page and read the closing paragraph.
~~
To those of you who are students, or are grown men who are forced, by the demands of making a living, to read immense documents of seemingly endless gibberish, I recommend you try this technique.
~~
If you do, I can assure you that you will find out far more than you ever needed or desired to know about the topic at hand, and to have a swell lunch lasting a couple of hours in a cute French restaurant in the bargain~even while your co-workers try to, somehow, muddle through, the entire document.
~~
As for advertising men and their role in all this:
~~
Consider:
~~
 
As the buyer, I ask you, have you paid the price the advertising man demands for HAPPINESS, and if you have, was the price worth the product, that is:
~~
 
Are you:
~~
HAPPY?
 
~~
If yes, do you know why?
~~
If no, do you know why?
~~
Some men desire more than anything else of this earth to be loved.
 
~~
 
As with any desire, there is a price to pay for gratification.

 
~~
 
Bill Clinton desired above all to be loved.
 
~~
 
Mr. Clinton was successful at getting many to love him.
 
 
~~
 
But, Mr. Clinton didn’t recollect, or reconcile in his mind, the price that must be paid for love.
 
 
~~
 
 
The price for love is not of money.
 
~~ 
 
 
OH, No.
 
~~
 
 
Nobody who desires to be loved ever anticipates the price he must pay for love.
 
~~
 
You see, it is well and good to desire above all else to be loved.
 
~~
 
The trouble with making the desire to be loved of paramount importance is that..so sorry to say,
~~
It simply doesn’t work.
 
~~
 
People say all sorts of things in life, Mr. Clinton, most in particular about LOVE.
 
~~
 
“I love you”
~~
Is very likely, they most shop-worn, the most hackneyed, phrase in the American English language.
 
~~
 
A language that, of Herself, already is, absent considerations of Love, the most cliché ridden mode of expression in world history.

 
~~
 
Very likely, neither Mr Clinton nor any others like him, who desire so much to be loved above all else in life, know why they are driven by the need to gratify that burning desire.
 
~~
 
But, as the desire is the soul of the man himself, it is pointless to consider why he desires what he does.
 
~~
 
He has no control over the desire.
~~
It is his in-born passion.
~~
His life is spent, chasing gratification of, his desire.
~~
Our clubhouse is very thankful of having many, and diverse, friends stopping in and today, as love is on all our minds, we are indeed charmed to have with us:
~~
Mr. Roman Krznaric, who has sent us this very useful note about the many types of Love, six types to be sure, identified by the Ancient Greeks, who so molded our minds, be we aware of that formative molding, or no, that we can all have, with our fellow Children of God, while we await a better life in the New Garden.
~~
And now, our guest, Mr. Roman Krznaric, whom we quote as noted until further noted, cease quote:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today’s coffee culture has an incredibly sophisticated vocabulary. Do you want a cappuccino, an espresso, a skinny latte, or maybe an iced caramel macchiato?

Eros involved a loss of control that frightened the Greeks.

The ancient Greeks were just as sophisticated in the way they talked about love, recognizing six different varieties. They would have been shocked by our crudeness in using a single word both to whisper “l love you” over a candlelit meal and to casually sign an email “lots of love.”

So what were the six loves known to the Greeks? And how can they inspire us to move beyond our current addiction to romantic love, which has 94 percent of young people hoping—but often failing—to find a unique soul mate who can satisfy all their emotional needs?

1. Eros, or sexual passion

The first kind of love was eros, named after the Greek god of fertility, and it represented the idea of sexual passion and desire. But the Greeks didn’t always think of it as something positive, as we tend to do today. In fact, eros was viewed as a dangerous, fiery, and irrational form of love that could take hold of you and possess you—an attitude shared by many later spiritual thinkers, such as the Christian writer C.S. Lewis.

Eros involved a loss of control that frightened the Greeks. Which is odd, because losing control is precisely what many people now seek in a relationship. Don’t we all hope to fall “madly” in love?

2. Philia, or deep friendship

The second variety of love was philia or friendship, which the Greeks valued far more than the base sexuality of erosPhilia concerned the deep comradely friendship that developed between brothers in arms who had fought side by side on the battlefield. It was about showing loyalty to your friends, sacrificing for them, as well as sharing your emotions with them. (Another kind of philia, sometimes called storge, embodied the love between parents and their children.)

We can all ask ourselves how much of this comradely philia we have in our lives. It’s an important question in an age when we attempt to amass “friends” on Facebook or “followers” on Twitter—achievements that would have hardly impressed the Greeks.

3. Ludus, or playful love

This was the Greeks’ idea of playful love, which referred to the affection between children or young lovers. We’ve all had a taste of it in the flirting and teasing in the early stages of a relationship. But we also live out our ludus when we sit around in a bar bantering and laughing with friends, or when we go out dancing.

Dancing with strangers may be the ultimate ludic activity, almost a playful substitute for sex itself. Social norms may frown on this kind of adult frivolity, but a little more ludus might be just what we need to spice up our love lives.

4. Agape, or love for everyone

The fourth love, and perhaps the most radical, was agape or selfless love. This was a love that you extended to all people, whether family members or distant strangers. Agape was later translated into Latin as caritas, which is the origin of our word “charity.”

C.S. Lewis referred to it as “gift love,” the highest form of Christian love. But it also appears in other religious traditions, such as the idea of mettā or “universal loving kindness” in Theravāda Buddhism.

There is growing evidence that agape is in a dangerous decline in many countries. Empathy levels in the U.S. have declined sharply over the past 40 years, with the steepest fall occurring in the past decade. We urgently need to revive our capacity to care about strangers.

5. Pragma, or longstanding love

Another Greek love was the mature love known as pragma. This was the deep understanding that developed between long-married couples.

Pragma was about making compromises to help the relationship work over time, and showing patience and tolerance.

The psychoanalyst Erich Fromm said that we expend too much energy on “falling in love” and need to learn more how to “stand in love.” Pragma is precisely about standing in love—making an effort to give love rather than just receive it. Withabout a third of first marriages in the U.S. ending through divorce or separation in the first 10 years, the Greeks would surely think we should bring a serious dose ofpragma into our relationships.

6. Philautia, or love of the self

The Greek’s sixth variety of love was philautia or self-love. And the clever Greeks realized there were two types. One was an unhealthy variety associated with narcissism, where you became self-obsessed and focused on personal fame and fortune. A healthier version enhanced your wider capacity to love.

How Should We Live by Roman Krznaric.
This article is based on the author’s new book, How Should We Live? Great Ideas from the Past for Everyday Life.

The idea was that if you like yourself and feel secure in yourself, you will have plenty of love to give others (as is reflected in the Buddhist-inspired concept of “self-compassion”). Or, as Aristotle put it, “All friendly feelings for others are an extension of a man’s feelings for himself.”

The ancient Greeks found diverse kinds of love in relationships with a wide range of people—friends, family, spouses, strangers, and even themselves. This contrasts with our typical focus on a single romantic relationship, where we hope to find all the different loves wrapped into a single person or soul mate. The message from the Greeks is to nurture the varieties of love and tap into its many sources. Don’t just seek eros, but cultivate philia by spending more time with old friends, or developludus by dancing the night away.

Moreover, we should abandon our obsession with perfection. Don’t expect your partner to offer you all the varieties of love, all of the time (with the danger that you may toss aside a partner who fails to live up to your desires). Recognize that a relationship may begin with plenty of eros and ludus, then evolve toward embodying more pragmaor agape.

The diverse Greek system of loves can also provide consolation. By mapping out the extent to which all six loves are present in your life, you might discover you’ve got a lot more love than you had ever imagined—even if you feel an absence of a physical lover.

It’s time we introduced the six varieties of Greek love into our everyday way of speaking and thinking. If the art of coffee deserves its own sophisticated vocabulary, then why not the art of love?

WE are, truly charmed to have had Mr. Roman Krznaric join us in our clubhouse toady.  We will all, I am very sure, attend appropriately to Mr. Krznaric’s words.  At this point, we here cease to quote Mr. Krznaric and thank him so much for coming to the club house today.

The sad truth of the matter is that if you desire, above all else in life, to be loved:

You will find out that:
It simply can’t work out.

Morganatic marriage: Left-handed love never quite pans out.~

LIGHTNING STORM OVER CAPITAL - WASHINGTON DC - OMEN OF THINGS TO COME?

Climate change comes now for the Democrats, who, heedless of the very firestorm about to be unleashed upon them at the ballot box in November, 2014:
~~
That storm itself brought on by the very class war they have unleashed upon the Americans,
~~
Continue to bang on their bedraggled little drum named:
~~
Equality.
Image
Mummy married a title but she was, later, sorely disappointed to discover:
~~
As:
ImageEarlier admonished by Nana, she later learned herself, and most very sadly so, this truism of life:
~~
Intercourse of any kind: sexual, marital, martial, social, commercial, between classes on different sides of the railroad tracks, can never quite work out as,
~~
One of the parties to such intercourse owns both the tracks themselves and the trains that ride over those tracks.
~~
So sorry for mummy, far, far more so, very sorry for me:
~~
Morganatic marriage:
Image
Never quite pans out.
Image
Bitter frustration and class envy soon follow on that
~~
most dreadful realization..

Venezuela, now captive in Her Babylon, Mr. Mandela’s inadvertent historical accident and the certainty that Communism must die so that Beauty might live.~

Friends in need~~Friends in deed.
~~
The Almighty has His Own Purposes~~Among those perhaps~Poetic Justice~as these vicious, vile and violent men who stamped the Horrific Cancer of Communism upon their Nations, will both perish of other Cancers~~of Their own acquisition.
~~~
  
For Venezuela, now in her black mourning cloth, now in her Babylon, we pray for her liberation from the Communists.
~~
Yes, Venezuela will be free again.  Pray God, very soon of that.
When She is free once more:
~~~~
Pray God that She will remember always the recent lessons of Peru and other lands, that:
~~
The Cancer can:
~~
RETURN.
~~
While we do so pray, we ask that Venezuelan patriots and patriots everywhere make an earnest oath to remember the Babylon of Communist tyranny after it ends and to not fall into silly, yet harrowingly dangerous, internationalist children’s flirtations with talk of progressivism that lead Venezuela and so many other countries into their Babylon to begin with.
~~
Today, the word Communism is never used as people everywhere, know it, hate it and fear it.
~~
So it is that the proponents of Communism, must use other words to trick the young, the naive and the stupid into following them.
~~
Today, principally, the word the Communists use to describe themselves is a bromidic, friendly and harmless enough sounding word called:
~~
PROGRESSIVISM.
~~
Know all here who read that Communism and progressivism mean the same thing.
~~
We pray God that when She is, once again, free of the Horror of Communism, Venezuela and Her People will remember the lesson of their Babylon:
~~
Even as many in their region of the world have so neglected that lesson.
~~
In Peru, so sadly, the people have forgotten the lesson of their own Babylon of Communist terror and have behaved most unwisely.
~~
For more than a decade, the Nation of Peru was subjected to the most bloody and savage Communist attack imaginable brought on principally by the Peruvian Government’s learning too late the terror that approached them.
~~
For many years, the Shinning Path, a Maoist communist front that is very likely unparalleled in its murderous ferocity, and the MARTA, an indigenous Communist group that had mutated over the years to become a violent extremist organization, remained mostly in the sparsely inhabited Amazonian and Andean regions of Peru.
 ~~
As these groups appeared a distant threat, the people of Peru on the coast, and most particularly at Lima, the capital, paid little attention.
~~
The Army was sent out into the bush  to kill the Communists, but the majority of the citizens at Lima paid no mind.
~~
No mind at least until the unspeakable horror landed at their very doorstep and terrorized them for years:
Mr. Guzman, head of The Shining Path in Peru, most fervent acolyte of Mr. Mao, had some catchy posters made, was given many heavy weapons by the Chinese and did his level best to terrorize and destroy Peru,
~~
Until finally came to Peru:
~~
A Saviour.
~~
Came to them a:
~~
LIBERATOR.
  Alberto Keinya Fujimori
 Alberto Keinya Fujimori
~~
Mr. Fujimori promised to kill all the Communists in Peru.
~~
No matter the cost.
~~
And he fully delivered on that promise.
~~
Does the Liberator of Peru today have statues built to him, giving the salute of peace?
~~
NO!!
 ~~
Rather, the people of Peru have imprisoned the very man who saved them from the Communists.
~~
We  have published an article in the press services about that sad circumstance, 
~~
 Comme ca:
~~
 
 
 
 
~~
It is a sad and remarkable curiosity to observe how it is that people in many nations end up imprisoning their liberators and building monuments to their tormentors.
 ~~
 So Sad it is that the people of Peru have imprisoned their Liberator.
~~
Far, far sadder still to say that they have replaced him with a Communist:
 President Humala has a very pretty little wife, Nadine.
~~
Pretty little wives set aside,
~~
The fact that the Peruvian people have torn down, replaced and imprisoned their Liberator, Mr. Fujimori, proves to us this sad lesson and provides this dire warning:
~~
The Cancer can
~~
RETURN.
~~
These ruminations cause a right-minded man to ask:
~~
How does Communism first come to poison the bloodstream of a nation?
~~
Let us remember as we pray for Venezuela Libre, that there are reasons why Communism initially attracts such a very sad and melancholy type of man.
~~
The Communists everywhere come in large numbers from the Universities.
~~
Why?
~~
Because, the professor class is today consumed with a fiery hatred.
~~
These men are ignored, no one cares about them, they are ill-paid, they are ugly, they are resentful, they are envious, little men.
 ~~
I had thought once that I would follow my grandpere into teaching, as I do love history.
~~
Years ago, when I was at University, I asked the young professors why they seemed so unhappy and why they had all adopted in the History Department the sort of faux Communism that one finds so prevalent in the American Democratic Party today.
~~
They told me, very willing why they had adopted the conceit of Communism:
~~
“We are outcasts, John Daniel Begg”
~~
We are ugly, not pretty like you.
~~
We resent the pretty ones, the insiders, born to easy privilege and idle indolence.
~~
We see you drink all day and laugh and chase girls all night.
~~
We don’t get to drink and laugh and chase girls all day and night.
~~
We have studied very hard and we have these exalted degrees and yet nobody cares about us, nobody asks our opinion of anything, we teach boys like you and watch as you leave here and make more money in one year than we will ever make in our lives.
~~
“In short, John Daniel Begg, we hate you.”
 ~~
We hate the boys to whom everything is handed at birth and who never have to lift a finger in life as they glide through it.
~~
I recall asking them this:
~~
“Doctors, I understand what you are saying, it is not complex, but I must ask, why do these resentments of me cause you to adopt the conceit of Communism?”
~~
 “That is to say, why do I cause you to be advocates of Communism?”
~~
To which they said to me, and most revealingly, so:
~~
Oh, we do not care about Communism, a silly, childlike affectation that does not even merit being called a “philosophy.”
~~
You are beautiful and we so hate your beauty:
~~
That: 
~~
We simply want to destroy you,
 ~~
 And hang the cost,
~~
Because we hate and resent:
~~
YOU.
~~
So it is that, for the man so consumed of envy,
~~
Beauty must DIE
~~
So that:
~~
Communism, destroyer of all beauty:
~~ 
MIGHT LIVE.
~~
So it is that we see how the Communist is given an opening into a society by the very weak and envious little men who labor, unappreciated and unfulfilled, at the Universities.
  ~~
These sad and weak little men, so overcome with envious hatred, leave open the door to the terrible horror of Communism, which promises them the real man, the strong man, who will strike down the very man who~the weak, little man~so fervently, so passionately,  envies.
~~
It is a curiosity and a sad paradox of the professor class that they care nothing of Communism, think it to be silly and childlike, and yet, loudly advocate for Communism as the mechanism to be used to destroy the beauty that they see all around them and envy so terribly and know that they can never have for themselves.
~~
In their frustrated, terrible envy, in their blind rage, they open the door to the cancer.
~~
Somehow, they never make note that the cancer will kill them first, before of all others, despite this having happened so many times before.
~~
After that door is open:
~~
The silly, little, weak and envious men are pushed aside and, indeed, they are very first one’s pushed to the wall to be shot:
~~
When:
~
THE TERROR ENTERS:
~~
The terror that can only be again set outside the house of civilized man by the most brutal of force.
~~
The other day, I rode a bus home from luncheon at my club to see, on that otherwise pleasant journey, to my surprise, this statuette dedicated to violence and murder, on Massachusetts Avenue–in the heart of the Embassy Row at Washington:

Statue of former South African President Nelson Mandela after the unveiling at the South African Embassy, Washington, D.C., Sept. 21, 2013 (P. Ndiho/VOA).

~~
Here we see what one might call:
~~
An:
~~
Inadvertent historical accident.
~~
Mandela is unknown to anyone, save for his ponces in the press services, the universities and the Communist propagandists and the very few of us who actually remember him as the vicious murderer that he indeed was.
~~
To the silly children who now venerate Mandela, who now pray their beads before his statuette on The Embassy Row, we ask, why do you so venerate a man about whom you know nothing except that which you have been spoon-fed by the Communists?
~~   
We have written of this Mandela here before asking:
 ~~
  “What to write when everybody’s wrong?”
~~ 
Comme ca:
~~
 
 
~~
Now, one would think that if the Communists were as conniving and ruthless as they have always been, rather than thrusting a violent Communist salute in the air above him on The Embassy Row:
~~ 
A clever artist would have been retained to have the cuddly grandpere of the nation looking benignly into the far distant future while holding onto the hands of little children holding flowers and smiling.
~~  
Instead, the Communista shows to us her slip–in truth, removes her clothes for us altogether, in most correctly, and nakedly, portraying Mandela as the violent, unrepentant Communist murderer that he indeed was.
~~
Giving, for all to see:
~~
The international communist salute.
~~
My dears, Communism can never survive as long as there are decent people on this earth.
~~
That is why the Communists, in their desperation to hold power, kill so many hundreds of millions.
~~
So, be ever on your guard:
~~
Of the envious,
 ~~
 Of the haters,
~~ 
Of class and position:
~~ 
Of the social levelers.
~~ 
These men will never go away because envy of beauty is a terrible disease.
~~
These men will seduce your children with their fake philosophy and bewitch the young into singing their songs that glorify the tearing down, the destruction of, all that is the beautiful, the destruction of art, the destruction of civilization.
 ~~
As a man who has seen the world and the beautiful creations of man that, God permit us, come about as a result of proper society, I know that it is beauty that so best defines the superiority of man above all God’s Creatures.
 ~~
You see, the Communist, in his hatred, in his vile envy, destroys all that is beautiful in the world in the name of what he calls:
~~
FAIRNESS
~~
EQUALITY
~~
ECONOMIC JUSTICE
~~
Of all the many reasons why Communism is a detestable condition, the fact that everywhere Communism exists, beauty always ceases to exist is the principal horror of Communism.
~~
That is what makes Communism:
~~
IMMORAL.
~~
As, everywhere:
~~
 As Communism exists, beauty dies.
~~
 So, too as, Communism must die,
~~ 
In order that:
~~
BEAUTY:
~~
May:
~~
Be:
~~
Reborn.
~~
~~Amen~~

Report: Investigators Now Looking for ‘Mystery Woman’ who Called Malaysia Airlines Pilot Before Takeoff

Mar. 23, 2014 8:16am

Investigators are focusing their efforts on discovering who called Malaysia Airlines flight 370’s pilot shortly before takeoff using a prepaid cellphone purchased with a false ID, Britain’s Daily Mail is reporting.

According to the report published late Saturday night, “The captain of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 received a two-minute call shortly before take-off from a mystery woman using a mobile phone number obtained under a false identity.”

The call was one of the last made to or dialed from Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah’s cellphone on the day of the flight now more than two weeks ago, the Daily Mail reported.

“Investigators are treating it as potentially significant because anyone buying a pay-as-you-go [prepaid] SIM card in Malaysia has to fill out a form giving their identity card or passport number,” the British paper wrote.

After the September 11th Al Qaeda attacks on the U.S., Malaysia instituted an anti-terrorism policy under which every purchased phone number is registered to an individual, the Daily Mail noted.

When police tried to locate the person who called the pilot of the ill-fated flight, they instead arrived at a store that sells SIM cards in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur. There, they learned it had been “very recently” purchased by an individual who gave a woman’s name, but was later discovered to have been using a false identity.

The Daily Mail wrote, “The discovery raises fears of a possible link between Captain Zaharie, 53, and terror groups whose members routinely use untraceable SIM cards. Everyone else who spoke to the pilot on his phone in the hours before the flight took off has already been interviewed.”

FBI computer analysts are now probing the hard drive from Captain Shah’s home flight simulator. They are trying to recover deleted files on the device which is now at the FBI lab in Virginia.

The Daily Mail also reported Sunday that Malaysian investigators are set to question the pilot’s “estranged wife” after waiting two weeks “out of respect” of her situation of stress.

The paper reported that the couple was separated, but had been living in the same house. They have three children.

TheBlaze is unable to independently verify either the report on the mystery caller or that Shah was estranged from his wife.

According to other reports, for example in Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald on Sunday, Shah was “a happily married pilot with three adult children.”

An unnamed source told the Daily Mail, “Faizah has been spoken to gently by officers but she has not been questioned in detail to establish her husband’s behavior and state of mind in the days leading to the incident.”

The gentle approach with a potentially key witness has reportedly irked FBI investigators assisting with the probe.

“The whole world is looking for this missing plane and the person who arguably knows most about the state of mind of the man who captained the plane is being left alone,” a source close to the FBI team told the Daily Mail. “If we want to eliminate the chief pilot from the inquiry, we must interview her in detail to find out what his state of mind was.”

The international search effort continued on Sunday with flights departing at daybreak toward the area west of Perth where suspected debris was spotted in satellite images.

Besides the image of unidentified objects in the Indian Ocean spotted by a Chinese satellite as reported on Saturday, a separate sighting of objects including a wooden pallet was reported by one of the civilian search planes, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) said in a statement on Sunday.

“During Saturday’s search activities a civil aircraft tasked by AMSA reported sighting a number of small objects with the naked eye, including a wooden pallet, within a radius of five kilometers [3 miles].”

AMSA which is coordinating the search effort is posting updates regularly on the Indian Ocean search at this link.

A note to our friend, Mr Robinson, follows now, touching briefly on the sad mayhem in the Ukraine~

Vladimir Putin speaks on TV

Vladimir Putin speaks on TV Photo: AP~

Vladimir Putin: Russia reserves right to use ‘all means’ in Ukraine

Russian president says that there is no need yet to send troops into Ukraine but reserves the right to use “all means” to protect citizens.

~~

 

 
Dear Mr. Robinson:
~
 
Thank you for your note just now about The Ukraine.
~
 
It is difficult for me, to be optimistic, about the situation in The Ukraine.
~

 
Seems an endless menu of bad choices to me over there, sorry to say to you, Sir.
~
 
Nasty bit of business that is over there.
~
Sharks of all sorts in the waters over there, sad to say.
~
 
As usual in these gambits, the regular citizens of Ukraine very likely have no say at all.
~
 
That area of the world, in one sense is like anywhere else, but,  in another sense is very, very different from anywhere else and frankly impossible to clearly  sort out.
~
 
I read that Mr.Putin is both a religious man and also principally admires, not the Communists, but rather the Imperial Czars–don’t just take my testament, he says he does.
 
 
 
The Romanov family, and Czar Nicholas II especially, are venerated as martyrs by the Russian Orthodox church.
~
 
My intimation on reading, both of current news services and of Russian history, is that Mr. Putin does want to put back together some semblance of the Czarist Imperial system.
~
 
Don’t take my testament for that, Sir, take Mr. Putin’s own testament.
~
 
Mr. Putin says he admires very much the Imperial Russian system, which certainly in some ways is understandable as, in 19th Century, The Imperial Crown was at it’s very highest heights.
~
 
Any derivative, distant or anecdotal memory or knowledge Mr Putin may have of the Crown, would be of a splendid golden and purple, vision of Empire.
~
 
Moreover, and I ask you, Sir~who today, would say that they wanted a return to an Imperial system who did not mean that?
~
 
And after all, Mr. Putin is likely all alone in the world of today’s leaders who can say precisely what he means to say without fear or favour.
~
 
I don’t personally think that there is anything particularly wrong with the notion of a reformation of Czarist Russia.
~
 
That’s certainly a better go than Communism~but then, anything is.
~
 
It is dicey always to be simplistic, but I’ve always had the notion that the Russian people are of the sort that frankly don’t expect too very much from life and they never disappointed in that assessment of things~~EVER.
~
 
 
So, in effect, all sides who are trying to snatch up power in The Ukraine, are conspirators.
~
There are no clean hands among the competing players there.
~
And, as is usually the case, the people in the country on whose land these gambits are being played out, suffer the most of all.
~

 
 
That said, Ukraine has always been in the Imperial Russian sphere of influence.
~~
Many there, want to be part of Russia, from whence all regional power derives.
~~  
The EU wants to take them into the EU commune, likely at the tacit, or benign, behest of Foggy Bottom.
~~
That notwithstanding–if or no–the people there want to be in the EU commune.
~
 
So, in effect, all sides that are trying to snatch up Ukraine, are conspirators.
~
There are no clean hands there–and, as is usually the case, the people in the country on whose land these gambits are being played out, suffer the most of all.
~
 
It is very hard–no Sir–impossible, to say with any precision just what the people there want–if you ask 12 people in Ukraine–what do you want–you are likely to get 25 answers.
~
 
It’s an impossible situation.
~
 
Bloody impossible, Sir.
~
 
To add to that, many in Kiev are open and blatantly, Nazi, in their politics.
~
 
Again, how many of the regular citizens of The Ukraine, are either Nazi, Communist, Czarist, Nationalist or simply are wishing all this madness would please go away?
~
 
Who can tell?
~
 
I surely cannot.
~
 
Who can?
~
 
As for conspiracies, of late, I have been taken with the notion that–NOBODY is in charge of ANYTHING anymore, despite what they might be thinking, or hoping.
~
 
Of which–for your reading:
~
 
 
 
~
God Bless, always,
~
 
Jack Begg

Mr. James Clifton, head Indian chief at Mr. George Gallup’s poll, suffers serious missed-conceptions about both work and about life herself~chief among those being that~Prince George does not tele~commute~

 
Dear Mr. James Clifton of Mr. George Gallup’s poll:
 
~~
 
Above we see a little picture of:
 
~~
 
Baby Prince George, receiving all sorts of the very best career counselling and planning:
 
~~
 
Preparing him for just the right sort of work:
 
~~
 
Which means:
 
~~
 
 
No work at all
 
~~
 
Mr James Clifton and friends:
 
~~
 
A Job is a job is a job.
 
 
~~
  These men are slaves:
~~
 
These are the hats slaves wear:
 
Meanwhile:
 
~~
 
This baby is a Prince:
 
~~
 
When he grows up,
 
~~
 
After his daddy dies,
 
~~
 
This will be his hat:
~~
Image
See the difference, Hunney?
 
~~
 
Meanwhile, slaves try to sort out who is the chief slave and who are the lowliest cotton pickers in the field.
 
~~
 
They look at their little lives and plan to go up to Hav~ad or to Yeah~ale and to:
 
~~
 
What the peculiar Americanism?
 
~~
 
Oh yes, to get their “tickets punched” for just the right sort of JOB.
 
 
~~
 
Even if they are born the lowliest of lowest cotton picker of all, at heart they try to act like a man, find a JOB and handle things the best way they can, try to move up the ladder of life and bring home the bacon like a man should.
 
~~
 
But, there really is no difference between the slaves.
 
~~
 
This equality in the cotton fields  is called by the Americans:
 
~~
 
Democracy.
 
~~
 
When Baby Prince George grows old enough to understand the fierce competition between the slaves, trying all life long to sort the difference between Big Chief Slaves and cotton pickin’ slaves:
 
 
~~
 
Prince George is very liable to say:
 
~~
 
“How terribly funny!”
 
 
~~
 
In the meantime, in between time, for the slaves, there really isn’t too terribly much for them to know:
 
~~
Bosses are bosses are bosses:
 
~~
 
Where ever they may hang their hat.
  
Life among slaves,
 
 
~~
 
All of them,
 
~~
 
Is down to this:
 
~~
 
As good little slaves,
 
~~
 
We all know that work of all kinds is a stone:
 
 
~~
 
DRAG.
 
 
~~
 
ALWAYS.
 
~~
 
We all work:
 
 
~~
 
All of us:
 
~~ 
 
For one reason only, hunney.
 
~~
 
We work because we selected the wrong Father.
 
~~
 
Think about baby Prince William.
 
~~
 
He chose the the right Father and he will never have to work a day in his little life.
 
~~
 
Nor his children, nor his children’s children.
 
 
~~
 
Don’t let anyone ever kid you, hunney:
 
~~
 
 
Heap Big Chief, 
File:Patricia Woertz - World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2012.jpg
 
Or Littlest Indian cotton picker:
 
 
If we work, at all,
 
~~
 
We all made a very bad choice at:
 
~~
 
Conception.
 
~~
 
And we will be bleeding in the same tub as everybody else:
 
~~
 
And spend our whole life, drinking and crying, even as:
 
~~
 
 
Baby Prince George:
 Just won’t care at all.
 
~~

    "Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he's the only one who's sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~

Mitt finally learns how to be a street fightin’ man~how to shove in his knife~Americans~be valiant~taste death but once~there is a dam a burstin’, on the other side~soon each of us will be called upon to say~which side are you on?~Decide.~

~~

~~

 

Mitt, as do I, assumes a certain level of gentlemanliness and conversance with life’s fundamental amenities and with grown-up literature in America, which is a mistake, most particularly when one considers Democrats, who all lack for the right sort of education.

 

~~

 

American Citizens!!

 

~~

 

There is a dam a burstin’,

 

~~

 

On the other side,

 

~~

 

Can you hear it groan?

 

~~

 

 

 

The wall cannot hold back the water any longer.

 

~~

 

Soon everybody will be shouting,

 

~~

 

Which side are you on?

 

~~

 

Before that dam bursts, every American must ask himself, in his heart of hearts,

 

~~

 

Which side am I on?

 

~~

 

There is no time left to pretend that  everything will be OK again someday.

 

~~

 

So?

 

~~

 

Which side are you on?

 

~~

 

DECIDE

 

~~

 

And while you are deciding, remember the famous words of The Bard, so true when written, truer yet today.

 

~~

 

“A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste death but once.

 

~~

 

It seems to me most strange that man should fear, seeing that death,

 

~~

 

A necessary end,

 

~~

 

Will come,

 

~~

 

When it will come.”

 

~~

 

~~ William ShakespeareJulius Caesar~~

 

~~

  

Mitt and I and all of us here, went to University to learn how to think properly.

 

~~

 

 

While Democrats, silly baby lambs, went to University to learn solely about  a brand of faux Communism, in which they dream of Democrats getting dirty rich while the Americans themselves bleed, penniless, in the tub.

 

~~

 

 

 

In foreign affairs, as in life, as Mr. Shakespeare, much earlier, had best put  it:

 

~ ~

 

 

 

“There is a tide in the affairs of men,

~~

 

Taken at the flood,

~~

 

Leads on to fortune.

 

~~

 

Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries.

 

~~

 

On such a full sea are we now afloat.

 

~~

 

And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.”

~~

 

 

William Shakespeare

 

~~

 

Julius Caesar

 

 ~~

 Better by far for Mitt to have quoted Mr Michael Jagger, in his very best and now, largely overlooked song, “Jigsaw puzzle”, which contains lines that even Democrats can understand:

 

~~

 

 

Governor Romney has finally demonstrated that trait of character that we have always assumed a man of high finance must have to succeed
 
 
~~
 
 
That:
 
~~
When it comes to the nitty-gritty, he can shove in his knife. 
 
~~
 

 

~
 
“Oh! The gangster looks so frightening,
 
~~
 
With his Luger in his hand.
 
~
 
 
But when he gets home to his children,
 
~
 
 
He’s a family man.
 
~
 
And, when it comes to the nitty-gritty, he can shove in his knife.
 
Image
 
He really looks quite religious but he’s been an outlaw all his life.”

Would, it please God, that Mr. Romney had thought directly of the nitty-gritty in 2012, when that knife was so, desperately, needed by the, remaining, Americans~~

    ~~Our Ubiquitous Presence~~

    The Queen~~

    In office now 62 years on~~

    Simply the best President we could ever hope to have~~

Hitler underneath me~

Mealtime: Hitler and Eva Braun pictured in the Berchtesgaden. The photograph was never published in her lifetime and was discovered in a photo album belonging to her that was discovered the by the US Army Signal Corps
Secret: Hitler was rarely seen in public with Eva Braun and their first public engagement was in June 1944 when her sister married a member of his staff
I say, did these two share, that which geels everywhere, call:
 
~~
 
Love?
 
~~
 
Or was it more a:
 
 
~~
 
 
Mechanical ..efficiency?
 
~~
 
I am unabashedly fond of sleeping with geels from all points of God’s Globe and doubt very much that He, in His Final Judgement of me, will find that fondness sinful.
 
~~
 
After all, He, Himself, made all the little darlings, I think, just for me.
 
~~
 
While it is simply not true as Stephen alleges that I have a remarkably “broad” knowledge of geels from ports both far and near, Stephen, as an officer of the Court, should know that my love of sleeping with all geels is, ubiquitous, and not “broad.”
 
~~
A sagacious attorney, would know the difference, Stephen.
 
~~
 
I love to sleep with all geels from every nation, and, periodically, now in my dotage, I think on the differences between them and their nations of allegiance and of their bright banners they proudly hold on high.
 
~~
 
Cautioned by others as I am, that I have led a remarkably peaceful, pampered, sequestered and sanssouci life and that I  have utterly missed out on all of the societal schemes and revolutions of the post-war years, cooked up by Democrats and others with simply horrid social backgrounds, I freely write in generalizations anyway because, well, because:
 
~~
 
I just don’t a damn.
 
~~
 
And because, it is self-manifest that:
 
~~
 
All one man can have of geels is:
 
~~
 
Very limited, first-hand experience, from which to draw general conclusions.
 
~~
 
 
I have told my brothers in my Party that I can think of no better recruitment tool to get others to come follow us than to say to the Republican novitiates:
 
 
~~
 
The single greatest thing about being a Republican is that you will, on joining us, never again have to pretend to take seriously any sort of Democrat Talk.
 
~~
 
I think such a recruitment tool would win for our side total political power in America as, even in my dotage and sequestration, I sense a roiling discontent in America with having to endlessly accommodate Democrat Talk, in all its absurd permutations.
 
~~
 
To novitiates in our Holy and Patriotic Party I say that, if you do come follow the Republicans, you too can find, as before you, I have, discovered, the wonderous calm that attends:
 
~~
 
 
Never, ever again, having to pretend to care about Democrat Talk and to, instead enjoy likewise, the God-like ability to say to the little children of that, other, odd little Party:
 
 
~~
 
 
Yeah well, just as with John Daniel Begg before me, I now, proudly, say:
 
~~
 
I just don’t give a damn.
 
~~
 
It has been suggested to me that to generalize about geels of an entire nation based upon very limited hands-on experience is rude and inappropriate as there are nice and good geels and impolite and bad geels living under all of God’s national banners and I think there:
 
 
~~
 
 
Might just be something to that line of thought:
 
~~
 
But for the German geels.
 
~~
 
German geels are smooth handling, hug the road well, corner perfectly, purr like little kittens when idling and have a most amazing acceleration when asked by the rider to:
 
 
~~
 
Give it all up to me:
 
 
~~
 
 
Now, now, Nanette,
 
 
 
~~~
 
 
Somehow when underneath me, German geels, lack for charm.
 
~~
 
Yes that’s it, what they lack is:
 
~~
 
Charm.
 
Mercedes-Benz 300 S – 1951
 
Mercedes-Benz 300 S
Year : 1951
 
The Mercedes-Benz is a fine and extremely efficient, motor car, but of all what else can be said of The Mercedes-Benz motor car, romantic and charming are, somehow, not words that readily come to one’s mind when riding them.
 
~~
 
To sleep with a Mercedes-Benz motor car, to be sure, will get you from point to point smoothly, effortlessly and very quickly so, but I find myself somehow left ill at ease by the German geels.
 
Image
 
When they call me back to them, in the dark, in the late night, in the dream time, I go to them of course readily enough and they are very willing to once again, very efficiently, take their rider anywhere on the road of night he desires to go, all the while talking in their native habit, as do geels of all other lands, an additional treat I find so endearing in all their sisters, the world over, somehow, deep inside the German geels purring beneath me, in that dark dream time, I am left, disquieted.
 
~~
 
Disquieted.
 
~~
 
Disquieted.
 
~~
 
It is hard to be precise about these things, as they are, so intime, but I think it’s down to this:
 
~~
 
When German geels are beneath me, in the night, on that dark road just before daylight, calling out in their native habit, I simply can’t but think, as did the star-struck Eva, who before me thought, that:
 
For sale: This portrait of Eva Braun that she once owned is to be offered for sale. It was lost for 70 years and is expected to sell for £6,000
 
~~I have
 
~~
 
~~Hitler underneath me.~~
