Promiscuity is a Dead End

We live in a promiscuous age, a very promiscuous age, you might even say a very Liberal age. For in every sense of the word the age we live in is Liberal. Where personal choice is put up as the highest value, where we are not encouraged to our highest virtues. Because we are told that sex is about fun and about pleasure. We are encouraged to distract ourselves through hedonism, into using our senses for pleasure because life has no higher purpose.

But I have noticed that for most people there are three stages to promiscuous:

1. That seems like a lot of fun!

2. This is a lot of fun!

3. This has stopped being fun!

Some people reach that third stage and push on to a fourth stage:

4. I don't know any other way to live!

Those who have reached the fourth stage are addicts and it is not different to any other addiction, they need their fix. And they encourage others to partake, after all what they are offering seems free. They will tell you "everyones doing it", "we aren't ashamed of our bodies like some people", "we are free spirits", but no addict is free and sex can be very addictive.

When you have limited experience with sex, promiscuity seems like a great idea. It improves your experience and your confidence, you feel popular. But it's not you who is popular, your the free dish on the menu and everyone wants to take a bite. It's curiosity, lustful curiosity, but that can be exciting, after all your also taking "bites from the menu".

So if it is so much fun why doesn't it remain fun?

Because there comes a time, quickly for some, years even decades for others, when you realised that you are treating others as if they are disposable. Then you realise that you are just as disposable. And for most people this realisation comes when they start being intimate with people they don't find at all attractive or even like. For most people that's when it all stops being fun.

When no-fault divorce first came into being there was a rash of people being serial monogamist, being faithful to one partner one after the other. In fact we still see it, people who believe that they are loyal and faithful and moral because every person they have been intimate with they have been in a relationship with. But this is simply another form of promiscuity.

While promiscuity is nothing new, it has reached further than anyone could have imagined. If we could travel back in time and inform people of our lives now, most people from the past would be shocked at how we live and that our society allows this, that we allow this.

Why Paid Maternity Leave Is A Bad Idea

Recently the Australian Government has become concerned about "double dipping" in regards to Paid Maternity Leave, where by Mothers get paid both by their employer and by the Government. Hence the term "double dipping", currently it is entirely legal and I might add entirely a Government created problem. But it obscures the real problem's with Paid Maternity Leave.

The Australian Government has since the 1970's followed the standard soft Feminism line, just like most other Western countries. The idea that women must become more autonomous, that women must compete against men, that the Government must support women against men and that the Family holds women back. But as Governments want to be reelected they didn't introduce all this at once. They brought in a little here and a little there, which is why even though they were giving Feminism most of what they wanted they were continually criticised.

It is only in the last 20 years that Paid Maternity Leave was given any political live. And it was not until 2011 that it became law in Australia, being called the Paid Parental Leave Scheme. It provides 18 weeks paid leave for the primary carer for a new born baby or an adopted baby, the Government wants to increase this to 20 weeks.

Traditionally a Mother with her new born was financially supported by her Husband. The Family provided what was required. But as business now had to recruit women because the Government insisted that not to was discrimination that meant they wanted women who they had trained and spent money on to return. This is the bases for Paid Maternity Leave. But what it does is it encourages the Government to replace the role of a Husband, in fact women don't even need a Husband because whether they are married or single the Government will provide.

Paid Maternity Leave is often advanced as a way of increasing the birth rate, but in the long run it will do exactly the opposite because it is anti-Family. Instead of building strong stable families, it instead encourages women to put career before either family or children. That can only push the birth rate down, it will never increase it.

Further Mothers who work are only part time Mothers, they work so that they can pay other women to raise their child, how much sense does that make? It is entirely uneconomical and it gives further power to the Government, because the Government, not the Parent gets to make the big decisions about how the child will be raised. Discipline, eating habits, education, non of this is decided by the parent but by the child care provider who must follow the instructions the Government has given them. She is reduced from being a Mother to being a broodmare who's only task is to breed. That is quite simply wrong and immoral.

If Paid Maternity Leave is paid for by the Government, then people who have no knowledge of Mother or child are paying for their upkeep. This is not about helping to protect the poor, it is instead paying people who have jobs to take time off. There is no such thing as infinite money nor is there such as thing as infinite jobs. Money spent here cannot be spent elsewhere. If it is paid for by the employer  as some argue then it encourages unemployment because it stops others from being employed. How can their wages be paid for when that money has already been spent on Paid Maternity Leave.

Paid Maternity Leave is also a direct attack on Marriage and the Family. Single women get paid just as married women do, here the Governments encourages single motherhood, instead of encouraging Father and Mother to marry. Marriage is good for all concerned, children grow up with both parents and they are all in a better financial position than if they lived in separate households. But nothing about this policy is about securing a stable environment for either Marriage or Families.

Economically Paid Maternity Leave is expensive, this week the Government announced that they are about $34 billion further in debt then they thought they would be. But instead of trying to save money, they push on regardless. Yet again we all get to live in a fools paradise, but one day it will come crashing down. Socially and economically this policy is the height of folly.

The Left Breeds What It Claims To Hate

The broad Left, whether it be Liberal, Socialist or what have you likes to tell everyone, including themselves how nice they are. How tolerant, open and loving they are, how they represent a new positive future open to everyone. However, if your like me and your not on the Left, you get to experience something about them that they never advertise. And that is how intolerant, close minded and hateful their past, present and future really is.

They haven't changed since the French Revolution, they always talk about the bright future that you can vaguely see on the horizon. They say it's a new dawn and we keep pointing out that it's an illusion and the Left really resent it. Although whether they resent us being right or us existing is open to debate. Because one thing they really don't understand is other peoples viewpoints. I am reminded of a quote from William F. Buckley, Jr. "Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.". You don't need to travel very far to encounter this view. You can go into any Left of centre chat room or put up a Facebook post that your "tolerant" "friend" see's. You can get into a discussion at work or at a party or even within your own family and there it is, that claim about how they love and how we hate, how they are tolerant and how we are intolerant. But what happens when you tell them that they are wrong?

Well all that love and tolerance just seems to vanish. They don't listen to your arguments, they don't respect you and they really really don't love you. It's as if they just use those things to make themselves sound better than they are. But there are three reasons why they use this line of attack.

1. They like to think of themselves as good people.

2. It is used to make others think that they are good people who always think of others before themselves.

3. How do you argue against someone who "loves"?

In reality all of this is simply a weapon, the Left tries to turn everything into a weapon. The Left believes that they can create a perfect world and that everyone who opposes them is evil because they stand in the way of that perfect world. You are evil, I am evil....according to the Left, so don't worry that means your probably not evil. Of course you might be evil, after all the Left call so many people evil, their bound to get it right once in a while simply by accident. But if your evil, or at least they believe that you are evil then they don't need to listen to your opinion because the evil opinion of an evil person is always wrong. But for the good of anyone standing nearby and they believe for your own good, they label you. You might be, Racist, Sexist, Homophobic, Islamophobic, Fascist, Nazi but whatever they label you, whatever name they call you remember it's because they love and you hate!

But when everyone who disagrees with you is (insert nasty name) the truth is they stop caring about being called nasty names. Think about this quote from Peter Brimelow of vdare.com who wrote this

"What I did not anticipate was that this continued vilification has resulted (in) a younger generation of Americans, who 71 years after the end of World War II, are clearly indifferent to accusations of Nazism, even if just out of bravado. This, too, is the fault of the Left and the gatekeepers of our public debate."

How indifferent? This indifferent!

When mild and reasonable opinions are treated just as extreme and unreasonable opinions are, there is no incentive to be mild or reasonable. The Left are creating the very extreme attitudes and opinions they profess to abhor. But when have the Left taken any notice of consequences?

They believe that there is no such thing as consequences on the road to Utopia, but like so much else they are going to find out that that ain't true at all.

What Should We Expect From President Trump?

I endorsed Mr. Trump back in September. I like to think that got him over the line during the election, of course it didn't but I do like to think it!

Now that Mr. Trump is President-elect Trump I have been reading many articles on various sites about what a Trump presidency will be like. Some have been quite good (7 Things to expect from a Trump presidency) and others have left me scratching my head. So I would like to try and show what we can reasonably expect.

We should expect very little in regard to social Conservatism. He simply isn't a social Conservative. So Homosexual Marriage, abortion and the rest of the social evils will not change. On this front we must continue fighting.

President-elect Trump has said he wants to increase spending on Infrastructure and Defence. That will push America further into debt. I'm not saying that Infrastructure and Defence shouldn't have money spent on them, but they do mean that America goes further down the debt hole. Maybe he has a secret plan for fixing the debt, I sure hope so.

No matter who became President at this election, non social Conservatism and increased debt were always going to happen. So in that sense this is neutral more than bad.

There are four things that he we should expect from President Trump.

Lack of Political Correctness: Political Correctness is something President Trump won't have much time for. He likes to call things by their proper name and he will, you should expect lots of "scandals" about how racist and sexist he is. I think most of us will quite enjoy this aspect of his Presidency, we might even be able to use it to push it out into the open more, get people used to plain speaking instead of walking on eggshells.

Opposing Globalization: Free Trade was given a fair trial and it has failed to deliver what it promised. If 25 years isn't enough to make it work than it can fairly be said to be a failure. It has failed the working people of the Western world quite clearly. President Trump wants that to change, it will be quite interesting to see his idea being put into practice. But anything that puts a damper on Free Trade is good. It helps restore national borders as well as national economies. A Government should be loyal to it's own people first and President Trump is doing that.

Immigration: I don't know what he will do regarding legal Immigration. But he has already said he plans to enforce US Immigration law, right there is a massive victory for everyone opposed to Mass Immigration and the destruction of White countries. I expect big things here and if he fails to delivery, that will be the biggest failure of his term. Now I know there are those who are saying that The Wall will now be a fence, but I do not see any reason to worry about what form the border barrier takes, what matters is that it is effective.

Opposing ISIS: There is one area where I believe most pundits are wrong. President Trump will not be a peacenik. In fact I believe he wants to fight a war and that war will be against ISIS. He has said so numerous times that he plans to defeat ISIS, if he is serious he needs US combat troops on the ground in Iraq and Syria. Air power has never won a war by itself and to rely on the Iraqi and Syrian Armies with Western special forces is no better. It might take as much as 100,000 troops on the ground to destroy ISIS and I think he will do that. The exact number of ground troops is up for debate but if he wants to destroy ISIS he must commit US ground forces to combat for as long as it takes in both Iraq and Syria. And I think that the Middle East is going to get a lot more walls as well.

As I have said before President Trump might fail, he certainly will disappoint. And while he will not give us everything we want, or that he might want, we should be enjoying the victories that we can achieve. After all we have all endured enough defeats, it might be good to have the a few victories.

Refugee Camp or Aged Care Facility

The Australian Government agreed under Prime Minister Tony Abbot to take in thousands of refugees from Syria. His successor Malcolm Turnbull has agreed that approximately 150 can be housed in an Aged Care Facility in Eltham. Eltham is a very leafy, middle class suburb, well known for being the favourite suburb for Teachers and for it's arts and crafts, including the artists colony at Montsalvat.  Into this mix the Australian Government has said it will bring in 150 Syrian Muslim women and children.

This is a terrible idea, but to show how terrible an idea this is I will assume that everything the Government and those on the Left has said about the Refugees is true. We have been told that only the most vulnerable of the Refugees will be housed here and that they will be women and children.

Firstly a community made up of only women and children is entirely artificial. Children need Fathers and women want Husbands and lovers, they want male companionship. There is nothing unnatural or unusual about this, in fact exactly the opposite. So if their male family members are brought to Australia how long will it be before they make their way to Eltham?

An Aged Care Facility is a place for the Elderly to rest after a life of work and family. They deserve that. But instead they will be subjected to children. Children are lovely, joyful, playful, loud and demanding, they all of those things. But here in this place of rest they will hear babies crying, toddlers screaming and children being loud. Non of this is unnatural or unexpected but this is is in no way consistent with the needs of an Aged Care Facility.

One thing that the Elderly are quite famous for is their resistance to change, they have lived a long time and they are set in their ways. Now they must not only adjust to a large group of people, but to a group who do not share their language, religion or culture. They are alien to each other in every sense. Now some will argue that they will get used to each other, but that misses the point, they should never have been put in this situation in the first place.

Another question that hasn't been answered is how old will these children be? 10, 12, 15, 18 or if Europe is anything to go by 36? It makes a big difference. Teenagers, particularly teenagers without male authority, tend to cause trouble. It's one of the things teenagers do without much effort. When they put effort into causing trouble things can become very serious. We have no idea about the age of these children nor do we know how long they will be here. A child of 10 today is 14 in 4 years time. Will they still be here in 4 years?

No one knows.

There are so many things wrong with this Refugee policy, but this list is long enough. If anything goes wrong remember the Australian Government is to blame because they allowed this to happen.

The Forty-Fourth Month

This month was a very good month, it was my third best month ever!

But first of all I would like to Congratulate my American readers for voting for Mr. Trump, I am very jealous.

In October I had exactly 3200 visitors, which means that on most days I had over 100 visitors each day. My worst day in the past month was the 15th October when I had 46 visitors, my only day under 50. My best day was the 6th November when I had 219 visitors. As I said a very good month.

I also had two links, one for The Middle Ages And Our Future from A Thrifty Homemaker and another for How To Abuse Children For Fun And Profit from Another Politically Incorrect Blog. Thank you for the links they are much appreciated.

My Australian numbers are nearly double what they were last month, which I'm really happy about. For the first time since May 2013 the United States is not the top country, Australia has reclaimed that spot!

I also had 200 German visitors in one day and 35 from Saudi Arabia on another day. The rest are more spread out.

Report From the Eltham Rally

In the last two days my post letting people know about the Eltham Rally, that took place today, has been viewed 198 times and in the last 24 hours I have had 124 visitors to the site from Australia. Which I think is a record, so the interest is there.

Today I went to the Eltham Rally to show my opposition to putting Syrians and Iraqi's into an Aged Care Facility in Eltham. The rally was held at Andrews Park which is right next to the Railway Station and within view of the Judge Brook Aged Care Facility. Even before I arrived the traffic was backed up into the next suburb. I later found out that was because the Police had blocked off the main street in Eltham so that the Left could have their rally. So I had to park quite some distance from the Park.

I walked to the Park and saw that the Police were out in force and there was no sign of the Left. I got lost as I went the wrong way and then couldn't find the underpass under the railway tracks, but that only wasted about 10 minutes so no real problem. As we got closer to the rally I saw that there were a few Leftists, maybe 10 or so on one side of some tennis courts. They didn't say or do anything. Then I came across the first Police line, I was asked if I was going to the Rally and when I said yes they let me through. The same happened at a second Police line. It was clear that the Police have learnt to keep the two sides apart.

The Rally was late in starting as we waited for The True Blue Crew to arrive. They arrived with massed Australian flags and loud cheering, it was a great way to start off the Rally. There were about 200 people in attendance, some came a long way, from the Southern Suburbs of Melbourne, from Mildura and Bairnsdale in country Victoria, we even had people fly in from Sydney. Having said that the majority came from Melbourne and I'd say about 10% were Eltham locals.

The Australian Party For Freedom ran the Rally and it's leader Nick Folkes was the MC. He introduced each speaker and in doing so basically gave his own speech, which I thought worked quite well. There were around 6 speakers, each had their own way of talking about the issue as well as letting people know about the broader issues. One was of particular interest, a local spoke and told how he had been harassed by the Left who had found out where he lived and knocked on his door at all hours of the night to intimidate him. The Left sure are tolerant!

The only harassment from the Left today was one guy yelling out, who was quickly moved on by Police and some chanting which we could barely hear. In total I saw maybe 30 Leftists and that was in total. The Police as I said were out in force, maybe 40 uniformed Police, another dozen mounted Police and a further 20 riot police( although there called something else) in their robocop armour. What all this proves is that while the Police have gotten better at keeping the two sides apart, they have absolutely no idea what either side is up too. The amount of Police was way out of proportion, although I did notice that the Police made an effort to have friendly relations with the organisers, I have no idea if that was the case with the Left or not.

After the Rally I helped pack up and then we went to the Eltham Hotel to have a drink and a chat. Quite a few went and I spoke to a number of people who are as committed as ever to fight on, it's such a good feeling to see some real fighting spirit. Speaking of which I spoke to one of the founders of The True Blue Crew and asked him about how they started. He told me that they were sick of seeing the Left attack people at Rallies and that he thought a group of young men who weren't going to take any rubbish was what the movement needed, I think he was spot on. The Coburg Rally in late May proved that when the Left tried to shut down a United Patriots Front Rally through violence and failed. Since then the Left has avoided our Rallies.

There were also about 10 or so Journalists, mostly freelancers and one Channel 7 TV crew and one from SBS, the Multicultural Station. I was asked by one freelancer if I would do an interview on camera but I said no, he was polite and moved on. I think talking to the media is a mistake, they prove each and every time that they are our enemy. Although I have seen some at a few Rallies and some even came to the Eltham Hotel and drank with us. In case the Left turned up? I have no idea, although everyone was friendly enough. While at the Hotel we even had a visit from the local Police who came down to say hello and to make sure everything was alright, again the Police are making a real effort to build bridges.

When I got home I knew that the Rally would be on the Channel 7 news, it was the lead story. Sometimes the News is neutral, most times it's not. This one sure wasn't neutral, it was very much on the side of the Left. It showed footage of the Lefts march through Eltham and their estimate of around 200 seemed about right. They didn't show any of the Rally, even though they were there I was less than a metre away from them at one point. They showed The True Blue Crew arriving and a verbal exchange between two people. It was quite pathetic really. Later on in the broadcast the United Patriots Front was featured when a story came up about changing the racial vilification laws. The report was mentioned because some Politicians want them abolished, but that wasn't the impression Channel 7 gave. No their idea was to use pictures to show a UPF Rally and imply that they are very much needed, the propaganda from the Media never ceases.

I know more Rallies are planned for 2017, I for one plan to be attending and if your at home thinking you should be doing something to protect our future, get out there and start fighting!

Eltham Rally 5th November 2016

If your in Melbourne Australia this coming Saturday, 5th November come along to the rally in Eltham. The rally is being held to protest the Governments decision to bring in 10,000 Syrians and to put around 100 of them into an Aged Care Facility. The Facility is now owned by the St Vincent De Paul Society, a Catholic charity. The Judge Brook Memorial Village was bequeathed by the late Judge Brook and was only for people aged 65 years or older. But neither the Government nor the St. Vincent De Paul Society will say exactly how many Syrians and what age they will be, although they have hinted that they will house women and children there. Even if that is true it still isn't good enough.

The rally starts at 12pm (Midday) in Andrews Park in Eltham.

Facebook Event

You might think that this is an issue that doesn't affect you, but once this is done here it will be done right across the country. So why is a charity so keen to put up these Syrians? Because the ever generous taxpayer will fund it all and modern charities love free money!

And just to rub salt into the wounds St. Vincent de Paul, was captured by Barbary pirates and kept as a slave by Muslims for two years.

I hope to see you there as I will be.
