From interest rates to the weekly shop, the cost of living is rising faster than it has for decades. But the question is: has the price of happiness gone up as well? And if so, what can we do about it? Let’s set things straight. Yes, money matters for happiness. If you’ve ever had to choose between putting food on the table and paying the electricity bill, this is not news to you. While money is not a guarantee of happiness, being without money is a common cause of stress, worry and unhappiness.(Snip)This is what hygge is all about. Hygge, a Danish tradition that has recently become a global


Feeling glum because your government has you hungry and freezing in the dark? Take heart, because hygge is taking the world by storm, while the Ultra 0.001% steal our wealth and destroy our standard of living because they need us to be miserable and demoralized. Simply light a candle, huddle under the blankets, and thank your lucky stars that things aren't even worse than they are.

Oh, yes. You peasants need to sit by candlelight and enjoy your diminished lives. I hadn’t realized that I could be so happy eating a bowl of rice and thanking my betters sitting in the dark and huddling by the fire. Welcome to the Middle Ages and make sure you thank Lord Gates.

You native Englanders freeze this winter while we also increase your taxes. It's for the greater good. But you immigrants, especially those from muslim hell holes that really hate us and everything we stand for, we will make sure that you are warm and toasty, since it would be culturally insensitive of us to make you suffer since you aren't used to the cold. And we have to keep the heat on for all you transexuals recovering from "gender affirming" bodily mutilation too. As western civilization dies with a whimper, not a bang!!!

Oh! Oh! I get it! We will be happier eating by candlelight and huddling under blankets, heating our homes by burning wood and walking or riding bikes everywhere! We won’t even miss electric lights and warm homes and going where we want in our own cars! Our “betters” are so wise! /do I really need to?

While I'm sitting in my glum room eating stale bread sipping the last of my whiskey in the house by a candlelight, I'll try to remember there are loser 'betters' with all the wealth happy they made me miserable. Like searching for a warm spot in a snowdrift that's hygge. Miserable but be happy about it when I don't have to be there's no formula that would make me happy except to expel the trash that created this. That's the real 'hygge'. FJB

NYT Sends Reporter to Herschel Walker’s
Hometown to Argue He Is ‘Not Part of

16 replies
Posted by Ribicon 10/3/2022 11:13:00 PM Post Reply
The liberal New York Times made the case Monday that Republican Herschel Walker has been ostracized from the black community in his small hometown amid his bid to unseat Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) in the race for U.S. Senate in Georgia. Times reporter John Branch, who is based in California, used mostly anonymous sources and anecdotes from visiting Walker’s hometown of Wrightsville to generalize that feelings that Walker, a Georgia football legend, is not in touch with the black community are “flowering ahead of November’s election.” “Herschel’s not getting the Black vote because Herschel forgot where he came from. … He’s not part of the Black community,” Branch quotes
San Francisco celebrates Chinese communism

San Francisco’s government raised the Chinese flag over city hall last week to mark the founding of the People’s Republic of China 73 years ago. The city government’s action was carried out despite Beijing’s ongoing genocide in western China, as well as propaganda support for Russia’s war against Ukraine. The flag-raising took place during a ceremony on Friday with city and Chinese officials and local business representatives, according to Chinese state media. Oct. 1 was the anniversary of the founding of the communist state that critics say has been responsible for the deaths of millions of people since the Chinese Communist Party seized power in 1949.

North Korea fired a ballistic missile over Japan, for the first time in five years on Tuesday, prompting a warning for residents to take cover and a temporary suspension of train operations in the northern part of the country. The Japanese government warned citizens to take cover as the missile appeared to have flown over and past its territory before falling into the Pacific ocean. It said it did not use any defence measures to destroy the missile, which was the first to fly over or past Japan from North Korea since 2017. Prime Minister Fumio Kishida condemned the launch and called North Korea's actions 'barbaric.'

President Biden traveled Monday to Puerto Rico to survey hurricane damage, meet with families and announce $60 million in emergency aid to prepare the island for future storms. Mr. Biden’s trip comes two weeks after Hurricane Fiona ravaged the island. As of Monday, 100,000 people are still without power because of storm damage. After receiving a briefing from civil leaders about Fiona’s aftermath, Mr. Biden announced a new round of funding for the island. The aid will be used to shore up levees, strengthen flood walls and create new flood warning systems to prepare Puerto Ricans for future threats. It will come from the $1.2 trillion infrastructure package that Congress

Defunct newsstands and other abandoned New York City sidewalk structures will be turned into “street hubs” for bike-riding food delivery workers under a $1 million infrastructure initiative rolled out by Mayor Adams on Monday.

Mayor Adams revealed Monday he made the call to let his public safety deputy have an NYPD security detail—and dismissed the notion that the police deployment would need a green light from the department’s intelligence bureau. “I am the intelligence bureau. I decide what I need in my agencies to get the job done,” Adams said at an unrelated press conference when asked if the detail for his deputy mayor of public safety, Philip Banks, was assigned by the NYPD division.(Snip)But Banks, a former NYPD chief who abruptly left the department in 2014 while under federal investigation, has had a police detail at least since June, raising eyebrows

Toyota Motor Corporation President Akio Toyoda told reporters Thursday that California’s ban on the sale of new gas-powered vehicles in 2035 will be “difficult” to achieve, given present battery technology and constraints facing the state’s electricity grid.

Gavin Newsom (D) and the powerful California Air Resources Board (CARB), which will require almost all new car sales to involve electric vehicles in just 12 years.(Snip)“Realistically speaking, it seems rather difficult to really achieve them,” Toyota Motor Corporation President Akio Toyoda told reporters through a translator on Thursday discussing California’s new mandates.

In an all-too-tellingly-empty stunt, Gov. Kathy Hochul last week ordered the state Department of Environmental Conservation to issue regulations banning the sale of gas-powered cars, pickups and SUVs by… 2035. It’s not just that she’ll be long gone by then, or that she was simply marking National Drive Electric Week by pretending to keep up with California’s similarly dubious 2035 only-electric rule. Nor that, as even The New York Times admits, electric cars are still far too expensive and impractical for all but the rich—with vast technological and industrial progress needed before they make sense even for the middle class.

Mr. Scott of Florida, chairman of Senate Republicans’ campaign arm, initially dodged a question about whether such rhetoric was appropriate before he condemned it.

Jonathan Capehart, a Washington Post columnist and MSNBC host, is arguing that Democrats need to retake the high ground on patriotism. It really bugs him that people associate patriotism with Republicans, while it is the Democrats who are the real patriots. Yeah right. I have no idea why anybody would think that Democrat leaders and commentators aren’t patriotic. Maybe because of statements like this: Capehart’s argument is not uncommon, of course. Democrats have been frustrated by the fact that Republicans have been more successful with patriotic messaging than they since at least the 60’s. Kennedy clearly was very patriotic with his messaging, but ever since Democrats have been associated

His characterization of Republicans being in league with the Devil, is not. Biden has characterized Republicans in general, and Trump supporters in particular. as threats to democracy and vote suppressors.
