  • Father of Alan Kurdi, drowned Syrian boy, describes desperate ordeal to save family

    It had been posted elsewhere on FR a curious situation. This is with the return of the deceased to the country for burial accompanied by the person that survived and fled from there. Did they not fear the same situation they left previously?

    I would observe that many so called refugees are really economic refugees. The European Union calls for the very first country they set foot on to do this. - That one country is the one that must document house and feed the new comers.

    If that country has serious economic problems the new comers soon know. That country has it's own poor and needy, their own housing problems. Off the newcomers go to those countries where the system has a free ride. The newcomers are not stupid.

    Just a statistic from Canada may be of interest. If a Canadian citizen had worked all their lives and did not have a civil service/industrial extra pension- sheer poverty. Total is two payments of about $1100 per month. A new "refugee" in Ontario gets the equivalent of $2,400 for starters.

    Like I said the new "refugees" ain't stupid. Excuse my ramble. Have a great Labour Day weekend!

    Thanks for the information and up date. President Johnson was already gone by the time that photo was taken.
    I can still visualise the utter weariness on his ageing face as he informed the American people he would not run for another presidency.

    And notice how they slipped in the part about them trying to come to Canada?

    I have kept a close watch on CBC and CTV on Canadian television. They now have their moment and latched on to it with a scarcely concealed agenda. Someone on CBC Radio one was earnestly trying to organize groups to sponsor refugees. He scorned the Canadian government's insistence of previous numbers of Syrian refugees admitted. He said we cannot find a Syrian family anywhere. Meant his location, I presume. Call on church groups and ordinary citizens, he advised

    I am reminded of the horrifying picture taken in Vietnam. A female child, who was naked and crying fled from a napalm attack. Survived and lives happily today. The outrage and vitriol mounted against that war, the picture helped. I learned later it was the South Vietnamese air force who dropped the napalm.

    They got what they wanted and destroyed Lyndon Baines Johnson's presidency.

    Leftists to the core.

    Just a few thoughts here and certainly in support of simple common sense as stated.

    Consider those who hint at or initiate mindless criminal attacks of hitherto ordinary police officers. Those officers who are completely devoid of any racial nastiness.

    The instigators can walk and talk freely. They can go to a fine restaurant. They can sleep at night in nice surroundings. They do not dread a thundering knock on the door. They are as free as a bird in the air.

    What of the unmitigated dupe and fool who has listened to their vile rhetoric? They are either shot dead, or more likely charged with murder and face a life in a vile hell hole. If not caught and identified, they must live a life of stark fear. They cannot rest.

    Can someone in their own community ever tell them about the fat cats living high on the hog, taking no risks?

    Shery. I hope you will not mind me adding to your observation of shop lifting. Yes indeed the change room trick was endemic. I have to laugh now at my ill fated three years as security manager. The store manager observed to me "the cheats are always one step ahead of us". True.

    A joker took a pair of jeans off the counter and went to the front desk and claimed a refund. The staff did not follow orders -"no refund without sales slip". I phoned the person named on his application for his money back. A female voice answered. "Is Pete xxxxx there" I said. She wanted to know who called. I told her and she screamed "He's dead!" He should have been.(LOL)

    I did some retail sales gross margin of profits for stores in Canada. Between 43% and 24% today. Whether department or supermarkets. Twenty years ago, the K MART Head Office must have given out very questionable figures.

    Your post mentioned the dread word "shrinkage" and I had to interrupt my usual perusal of FR. I was security manager for a branch of K Mart Canada. Each year an inventory was taken. Non employees were brought in.

    The total of all saleable goods was indented. Then the total incoming goods were carefully measured for the year. The head authority of K Mart conceded there would be one and a half percent "shrinkage". At above three percent the head honcho came up from Toronto to Northern Ontario. My job was to bring down the heavy losses of "invisible waste". Every one sidled away from the head honcho.

    I ran my rear end off and put in extra hours- no reduction. I was given a table of margins of retail profit. They said ten percent shrinkage was running the store at a loss. They eventually closed the store. My successor had a nervous breakdown also. They could not find the "hole in the wall". Excuse the ramble, but the utter and complete stupidity of the academic boggles the mind. Here in Canada food stores are said to operate at a two or three percent margin of profit. The immense volume, since people must eat gives them a tidy return. This if people pay for what they take out.

    Agree with Rush here.

    To say nothing of citizens of Gt. Britain and Europe, countries that were allies of the USA in WW2. They dutifully go the American Embassy and apply for the requisite forms, as indeed they should. Sometimes the system moves fairly quickly and are either accepted or rejected. Still others hang in for years and wait patiently.

    From up Canada way, I do not have a dog in the hunt, so to speak. Even in general terms it seems that Republicans have faced so called "moderators" before. So have the Democrat. What has followed in some cases is an absolute bias and also an agenda displayed by the "moderator". The Republican have stepped in it again and again.

    If CNN had an ounce of professional integrity ,then surely they would choose or even instruct the "moderator". That person - again, if they had any professional integrity, should attempt to be fair. What could be wrong with that? Even in spite of their personal beliefs, a really concerned and professional person would try to be fair.

    The utter corruption of much of the media is known here on FR. Unfortunately, it may be that the general public accept as the norm this conduct.

    Please excuse the rant. The word "moderator" alone defines fairness. Shame on these corrupt merchants of an agenda.

    Up Canada way we have the Detroit channel on cable. True, I do not have a dog in the hunt, but I chanced on the Charlie Rose show. There was Al Hunt in place of Charlie and Dr. Ben Carson. I was impressed at the unflappable and incisive manner of the Doctor.

    Now a curious exchange took place when things not being favourable to the standing president took place. Hunt broke in again and again, just after the Doctor finished a sentence. It was a virtual staccato of interruptions. Hunt was agitated. I noticed the same style with one Anderson Cooper at one time. He, breaking in and cutting off his subject.

    The Doctor refused to be trapped re the "birthers". He stated, as you will know, that secrecy and refusal to show ordinary records breeds conspiracy theories. At telling comment, was the mystery of how the President got from the Occidental College to Harvard.

    Simple enough, but guarded like a state secret. (Just an opinion here though).

    I know it's not a book, but Kurt Vonnegut's short story "Harrison Bergeron" should be on the list. I thought I had read - or seen a review of most of Vonnegut. This I will have to read.

    His two novels, "God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater" and "Slaughterhouse Five" are absolute classics. Lots of great books out there that the majority will probably never read. Simply because, even if avid book readers, they will not have been introduced to them.

    A superb series on the rot and carnage of WW1 was written by Ford Maddox Ford. "Parade's End", being the third in the series. He draws a picture of the immense bureaucracy and paper work used to send brigade after brigade to their possible doom. Ford served himself in that war. Excuse me, I had better not go on with all this. Sort of felt a little ramble. (chuckle)

    One of my earliest memories of exploring the UP came over fifty years ago. I live opposite the UP just across the St Mary's River in Canada. I decided to explore the tiny community of Gay Michigan, as I drove around the Copper Country.

    There was the black sand from the mill. A small fortune was made by the entrepreneurs who discovered even more copper could be extracted. This from the discarded heaps of tailings. This you will know.

    I smiled as I posed by the sign of the communities only bar. It read "The Gay Bar". I went in with my wife to quaff an ale. The last place on earth any one would expect to find any one who would be called "gay". I did not find, nor did I look for any "gays". I and sipped my beer and felt, though a stranger quite at ease.

    Google has the same sign and also the school house preserved in time. I plan one last look at the Copper Country in August. My daughter will be driving myself and my wife of 54 years married. She was about six years old when she was with me on our trip, many years ago.

    I read a few comments on the lack of free speech in Canada. I would modify this somewhat and give instances where to an extent there is free speech. Since everything is rigidly controlled however, not everyone would see it as free. An example is the existence of these redoubtable Canadian blogs.

    Small Dead Animals.
    Five Feet of Fury.
    Free Dominion.

    The charge of "no free speech in Canada" does sadly have merit. Free Dominion was shut down for a while due to the machinations of a Toronto lawyer. The monetary fine broke them. They are now back. This man was employed by the Human Rights Commission of Canada (so called). He left them and was employed independently. He bought a number of cases to his former employers. They found for him ten out of ten times and two not determined either way.

    This man masqueraded on other really far out right wing blogs, not these three. He posted vile racist comments under a pseudonym. Like he was an absolute wacko. He then complained with the Human Rights Commission that the blogs committed an offence by allowing these racist comments.

    Someone tracked the Internet Service Provider origin. It was sent from a young woman's ISP. She had no knowledge herself. It was the hot shot lawyer. He got a rap over the knuckles only , it being said "it is very disturbing".

    This is why some of we Canadians love Free Republic. (Chuckle)

    They will cancel/put a hold on the initial card while you get a new card in the mail(then you activate it). The old charges are transferred to the new card.

    Sound advice. I note that a thread was mentioned called General/Chat forum mentioned this. I have never used it, but will now. Perhaps not this general thread to air one's own personal experience with this type of thing.

    I had used Norton Security and had myself installed a disc. I was deducted yearly. I junked the pc and got a new pc. I was sold a plastic card at a local store. to install a Norton Security system. I was directed to a 179 dollar security system (Norton) by GuraAid of Mumbai . They "assisted" me to install the more expensive one . I lost my money. I phoned the credit card company MBNA. They quickly cancelled the number and sent a new card. Repeated calls and e-mails to Norton got nothing. Then out of the blue came requests to activate the old Norton disc. Now defunct of course. Absolutely no interest in my lost money, no explanation why they use (if they do) Mumbai India.

    This should be on General Chat though. Please excuse this rant.

    I mention The General.

    Buster Keaton was the lead role in 1926. He played Johnnie Gray and he got the girl also. The film was loosely based on the epic chase of a commandeered locomotive, called the General. A Union spy, Virginia born and Union troops drove the train many miles, intent on damage to the Confederacy. They had seized it by force.

    An engineer and other Confederates seized another locomotive called The Texas. A wild chase ensued. They halted the General and the Union men ran for cover. The Texas, when I saw it at the Cyclorama building in Atlanta was on display.

    Some critics have called this silent film "One of the greatest films of all time".

    Something tells me I should not get in on the conversation, being from up Canada way. Still just cannot go on without mentioning my little trip to Atlanta in 1959. There is a splendid building housing the Cyclorama. It is a huge round painting depicting the siege of Atlanta.

    Outside is the locomotive called "The Texas". It is mounted and displayed. Union troops had forcibly boarded a locomotive called "The General". They were intent on mayhem and drove many miles away. An engineer and Confederate soldiers chased the General, using the Texas and halted the train.

    Sadly, because of the rules of war, eight Union men were hanged. Nine survived. An epic story. Buster Keaton appeared in the 1926 film "The General" loosely based on the real event. His role was of the engineer who was a Southern hero. Very sympathetic to the South, this old movie.

    There seems to be some sort of politically correct appeasement in this old word of ours. Now the original flag of England was the Cross of St. George. A red cross on a white background.

    To mark themselves as English, soccer fans, some of them rowdies painted the red cross on their faces. A village in England called Radstock, banned the flying of the old St George flag. There were 16 muslims in the village of 5000. Did not want to offend them. Others spoke of removing that old flag from town halls. vis: do not offend muslims with the flag of the Crusaders. Another reason being to do not associate with anything that soccer rowdies use.

    So it goes. In friendly fashion I will check back on June 30th.

    My post on the President of the NAACP seemed somewhat harsh accusing him of race hatred. I tried to access any information and cannot seem to find any real overt Sharpton type stuff.

    I did find an interview with one Erin Burnett with Mr. Brooks. She quoted the stepfather of Michael Brown, an black male shot by police. He screamed "Burn this bitch down" referring to Ferguson city. Mr. Brooks replied " I don't think it was a call for violence, or caused violence". Somewhat debatable I would think. I just seemed to think that race baiting was a valid criticism of Mr. Brooks on the subject of Roof's evil deed.

    The Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mother.
    Author: Janny Scott 2011.

    It is the story of a young impressionable woman who has her mind corrupted by liberals. She despised old fashioned America.These ideas were taught by her high school teachers and others. What may be missed by some critics, is the infiltration of America haters into the educational system.

    In this way the white liberal preaching contempt and even hatred for old fashioned America, blighted young minds. They then switched their vile message to then preaching against white authority. Called it white priviledge.

    None of them ever thought of giving up the wonderful advantages of an American society. No guilt for their lily white selves though. They simply preached some sort of white guilt on impressionable young minds. Please excuse this rant. Just had to sound off.

    Your post #25.

    He was trying to kill himself and everybody else. As is common for Homosexuals, he was trying to commit suicide.....

    It seems to me that there is a tactic used by police and other interogators, where a crime may be suspected. Ask the person concerned whether he/she will take a polygraph test. Leading question.

    Do you remember the increase in speed, before derailment?

    Every reporter I have ever met wished he was the king. He'd do it right. It's egoism at a key stroke. It's narcissism with a microphone.

    I wished I said that (grin). Never a truer word. Irrespective of anyone's views of President George W. Bush, it seemed the MSM strove to denigrate him. At times it was akin to hate. Seemed like a most affable gentleman to me. Sure, disagree with his policies if they wished.

    Same in Canada with moderate conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The Canadian television monoliths churn out politely well disguised snipes about him. So clever are they some viewers are hardly aware of their bias. They cannot stand to see him in power.

    Someone described it as "death by a thousand cuts".

    Ever since 9/11 these psychopathic people have used "legitimate" or vague actions to keep us off balance. Witness the imams on passenger flights in Minnesota. Praying loudly and shuffling seat places near the emergency exits. Then underneath the International Bridge connecting the Upper Peninsula with Ontario came a group of muslims from Dearborn, Michigan.

    Not your tourist spot for sure and they took videos and made a noisy display. Canadian security alerted the American border people. They said there was nothing they could do as no law prevented them from doing this. In my opinion it is a war of nerves and designed to give various muslim groups a special status. They know exactly what they are doing. Anyone that is doing this in a democratic country, in which people risk their lives to enter, are malevolent and mentally sick.

    I repeat - a war of nerves. (excuse this rant).

    The words of "The Road to the Isles" started up in my mind as I viewed the great picture studies. One, of Rannock Moor brought me back to 1954. I was a youth hosteller up from London Town. I was told at Kinloch Rannoch station, no train for four hours to Fort William.

    I asked the station master if the path starting at the moor would take me to Glencoe. It was about twelve miles. I started walking and he said "I hope ye know what ye are doing". After ten miles with absolutely no dwellings, but the streams and the croaking of frogs, I lost it. Became disoriented.

    Not the website to go on the subject, but the memory still vivid. I later learned that in 1907, four Irish lads working on a great hydro project, had walked the same route. There was no tavern at Kinloch Rannock and with their pay went to Glencoe to drink. At the area where I almost lost it, on their return, a storm blew up. They died.

    This was on the eastern side of Rannoch, not where the Glencoe massacre took place. I finally saw a lodge and a path to the highway.

    I seemed to have missed the reaction of Thomas Mulcair, leader of the parliamentary opposition. I know he kicked up a fuss about his personal safety where he resides. Not enough done for him, I presume, after the attack on Parliament. Coupled with the brutal senseless slaying of a volunteer guard at the cenotaph. This includes his eulogy to Islam at a mosque.

    Steer her straight Prime Minister.

    We are headed toward a time when our ultra frivolous, easily amused. populace will just hand it all to anybody that screams BOO.

    I read you and know there is a valid reason for your apparent despair. As I watch the various television shows and the fawning agenda driven sycophantic talking heads, I shout in disgust. However and it is a big however, I often visit our neighboring twin city of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.

    It seems that the rot and degeneration has not reached much of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Maybe someone will say different. Life goes on and the long ships pass up and down the St Mary's River. The tourists flock along the waterfront. One murder in the last five years. Low crime rate.

    I have read the book "The Blue Highways" by William Least Heat Moon, first printed about 2002. His little odyssey around the periphery of the USA. The quiet strength of the men and women in little towns stands out. Now I know this is a long screed, please excuse. I am now 83 years old. The highlight of my summer is to be driven by my daughter and family up to Michigan's Copper Country. This in August. I first "discovered" it in 1961. Took relatives from England up there.

    Then there is the classic film Anatomy of a Murder. This made up in those parts. I expect to see everything much as I last saw it. This old fashioned America must and will endure. The struggle will not be easy. Those who sneer will have to face one heck of a winter season (laughs). No room for frivolous do nothings, I would guess.

    I would presume Bruce Jenner has a sexual preference. Had he privately and quietly had his "change" it might have been less provocative. What concerns me is that some years ago I read of a man hooking up with a "female" at a bar. They got into some groping in the back seat of his vehicle. He was so disturbed when finding out the "female" had male genitalia, he committed murder. His life ruined. I could not find that reference, but found this.

    February 2015. A Texas College football player met online a "female." A relative explained they got into some hot and heavy stuff on meeting. This was in a vehicle. Two shots were heard and forensics put the football player on trial for his life. The trans gender person was dead.

    The 21 year old football player as his photograph showed, could have had success with women in general. I am saddened by the sudden revulsion that causes some men to completely lose it. Lives ruined.

    Let us get back to normal.

    The problem appears to be with those who profess their holy than thou humanity. Were they to be directly responsible from their own pockets, we would see a change of mind. They simply rely on the system to go on and on printing up money. I did some research as to the cost of HIV treatment in Canada.

    November 24th 2011. Canadian AIDS Society. 1.3 million dollars per person. Total expectancy over 4 billion dollars for all. The number still increasing of infected persons.

    If the system we support in Western Civilization, ever breaks down as in 1920's Germany then everyone is screwed. The money system collapsed and along came a little dictator. (pardon the word usage). Excuse the rant.

    I have read your assessment of Ann Coulter's book. I like to do book reviews myself as shown on my profile. This impels me to trot down to Indigo books up here in Canada and invest. Canada too does suffer from seemingly unrestricted immigration. It has not really hit yet, because of it's widely spread thin population.

    I sadly smile at some of the exchanges and will keep my nose out of it. I will however repeat a statement made at one time.

    From up Canada way my wife and I watched the NATIONAL MEMORIAL DAY CONCERT. It was on the Detroit Channel 14. We both remembered WW2 living in Greater London, England. Both kids though. Just this from us and including the marvellous singing and bands. Not forgetting who saved our bacon.
