SEXISM AND DUPLICITY THE BRITISH WAY

SEXISM AND DUPLICITY THE BRITISH WAY BRAINWASHING AND DUMBING DOWN THE NATION THE AMERICAN WAY DICTATORSHIP OF MINORITIES REVISITED A true democracy means MAJORITY rule. What we have in today’s perverted world of sexism is a dictatorship of minorities. I first wrote about that over 25 years ago in my 1997 Washington Times column  “Dancing ‘Round Golden Calves." Every comment is still valid today, some even more magnified. Here are the opening paragraphs: HOLLYWOOD'S BRAINWASHING The latter - the entertainment industry - deserve a particularly big credit. For their movies, TV programs and series help brainwash hundreds of millions of young people into grown up morons or "mutts," as I predicted in 1997. And this is how that's done... NEW LANGUAGE IN MEDIA: WOKE AND CANCEL "CULTURES" Ever since the 2016 election, you might have noticed increased use of terms "woke" and "cancel" in the mainstream media. As a result, there has been a growing polarization of the American society. The 'woke' crowd (aggressive liberals, reverse racists), egged on by the likes of George Soros and Joe Biden, are have been wreaking havoc on American streets. BLACK SLANG ENTERS MAINSTREAM AMERICA: "WOKE" HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CULTURE; "CANCEL" HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CULTURE, EITHER

A “HIT AND RUN” THE BELGRADE WAY

SERBIAN POLICEMAN: "IT'S MADNESS OVER HERE. THIS IS A CRAZY COUNTRY, THESE ARE CRAZY PEOPLE, THEY DO CRAZY THINGS." AND IT'S ALL CONSIDERED "NORMAL", INCLUDING DOUBLE-PARKING AND BLOCKING OTHER PEOPLE'S CARS Last Thursday, I parked our car on "our" street. Milutina Bojica is "a quiet dead end," as people would describe the 100m-cul de sac. It sticks out like an appendix perpendicular to Palmoticeva St, a well known tree-lined residential street in the heart of Belgrade which runs straight down from the Serbian Parliament. Parking in this congested area is always at a premium but especially now when the vacations are over and the kids are back in school. So we were lucky to find a spot so close to our apartment. We call this "carsko mesto" (an imperial spot). 🙂 Well, three days later it turned into a pauper's spot.

BEAUTIFUL BELGRADE: A CITY ON TWO MIGHTY RIVERS SPARKLES AT NIGHT FROM KALEMEGDAN FORTRESS

It has been years since I walked along the walls of the Kalemegdan fortress. This Turkish structure built on the walls of the Roman city (Singidunum) has always symbolized the indestructibility and resilience of the Serbian nation. After a 500-year darkness under the Turkish sultans and pashas, the Serbs threw off the Ottoman yoke in early 19th century and created their own kingdom. Kalemegdan became a symbol of Serbian victories over three mighty empires – the Ottoman, the Austrian and the German. In 1928, on the 10th anniversary of that victory, a huge monument was unveiled. Dubbed the Victor, the Serbian warrior is holding a hawk in his left hand, symbolizing vigilance and watchful eye pointed toward the former Austrian empire, and a sword in the right hand, ready to defend again his country if necessary.

UTTER DISREGARD FOR BICYCLE RIDERS AND CIVILIANS

UTTER DISREGARD FOR BIKE RIDERS AND PEDESTRIANS Let's sum it up. In Belgrade, bike riders and pedestrians are like dirt. Free game for builders and drivers. The communist mindset which puts machines ahead of the individuals and nature is still present. Twenty years ago, a Serbian politician (Djindjic) tried to be different. His government built this beautiful bike path and opened the river to the citizens of Belgrade. Alas, it was all for naught. Because the current authorities are again allowing the construction companies to put machine ahead of man. And they are still allowing reckless drivers to get away with endangering the riders on bike paths. There are never any police in sight there while plenty of them are seen handing out parking tickets or wasting time on other petty offenses. Bottom line: BIKERS BEWARE! Belgrade does not want you.

AN AMERICAN FROM SERBIA: “THOSE WHO DO NOT LEARN FROM HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT”

AN AMERICAN FROM SERBIA: "THOSE WHO DO NOT LEARN FROM HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT" WILL NOTHING EVER CHANGE IN SERBIA? (for the better) So the Serbian cauldron is boiling again. People are in the streets protesting against the regime, and the police and government goons are beating them again. Just as happened in 1968 when the Belgrade students rose up against the communist dictator #1 (Tito). And again in 1996 when the Belgrade students and others marched against the communist dictator #2 (Milosevic). Only this time, the young and the old are united in their protests against the Vučić regime and his Serbian Progressive Party.

AN AMERICAN IN SERBIA: WHAT LIVING IN BELGRADE IS LIKE AFTER 50+ YEARS IN AMERICA

Three years ago, I arrived in Serbia. The idea was to see what living in my native city for about six months would be like after spending half a century in America. Well, the best laid plans of mice and men… Three months after my arrival, a temporary living arrangement became a permanent wedlock. I married my landlady. I grew a beard. I still wear it. I lost some weight. Healthier food and lifestyle, I suppose. Those were some of the good things. The rest… well, it was a culture shock. So much rudeness. So much senseless bureaucracy. So much unnecessary regulation. So much intolerance. Now we have been back in Belgrade for a fourth summer/fall in a row. I’ve already shared with you a number of stories which document the progression of Serbia into a police state and an economy driven by washed up drug and human trafficking money. And slowed down by nonsensical regulation. Now I want to share with you some of the good sides of the Serbian capital – Belgrade. Such as its beautiful location at the confluence of two big European rivers – the Danube and Sava.

SERBIA: THE MOST RECKLESS COUNTRY

of the highest vaccinated countries in the world. Now Covid is raging in Serbia while vaccinations seem to have slowed. As a result, Serbia is now the worst country in terms of the anti-vaxxer index. What makes Serbia the worst country? First and foremost, recklessness and ignorance of the anti-vaxxers. But there's also a possibility that the Chinese vaccines, which are the most prevalent in Serbia, may not be as effective as the American Pfizer or Moderna ISRAEL PUZZLE: A HIGHLY VACCINATED COUNTRY WITH HIGH COVID INFECTIONS

9/11 – 20 YEARS ON

MISERABLE FAILURE AND TERRIBLE COSTS OF "WAR ON TERROR" The US "war on terror" has cost the taxpayers some $5.8 trillion, not counting the cost of hundreds of thousands of lost lives. What else could have the US government achieved had it spent it on peaceful purposes.
