So I went to another Doctor and I said "No-one is paying any attention to me" He just said "Next".

Hanno comments on Oct 30, 2020:
I disagree that there is a selfless concern or act. Every act we do is is for our own interest. When I do good, not even just for other people, but even nature or anything else, I feel good about myself, or at least better. The Dalai Lama himself confess that it is to find peace of mind... and he needs to do this for his own peace of mind, to validate his own existence. We do good things ultimately because it makes us feel good, the more “selfless” the act, the more serotonin and dopamine’s are released in our brains. I am not arguing against doing good, however we need to be honest that we are doing it for our own benefit and the actual “good deed” is just a bonus. That is why you see so many people “doing good” while actually doing the opposite... like brainwashing children into a faith or political view... they think they are doing good, and the reward is all in their own brains.
Should white people consider identifying as non-whites for personal gain?
Hanno comments on Oct 30, 2020:
If memory serves me right in 1998, in the South African National Arts festival and awards, almost all the awards went to black artists, for the first time in the 40 odd year run of the event. The next year a number of non-black artists entered half their work under their own names and half under aliases, specifically black names. White artists won in 1999 all the major awards, but only under their aliases. They won nothing under their own names. In 2000 entering under an alias were banned... however by now the awards lost all their prestige. Their has since been large arguments about whites claiming black ancestry... myself having my great-great-great-great- grandfather taking a Khoi wife alongside his German wife... and 12 children with no record of who the mother was. My family is dark for Europeans and I always thought it was some Khoi blood in my ancestry. However, no chance of me claiming that.

Are we in for a Covid-19 "Dark Winter"?
Hanno comments on Oct 27, 2020:
The simple reason why countries have such diverse paths, is simply because of different testing regimes. Europe was first and had poor testing, the vast majority of cases was missed... and hence they have very high case mortality rates. The USA was later and did much more testing, much more cases but much lower CFR. Then Africa and India followed even later with very good testing regimes and we see very large cases but CFR’s of 2% and less. Now we are seeing massive cases in Europe because they are testing everybody... and extremely low CFR. We are now beginning to see the true fatality rates ~ 0,4% or about twice that of the common cold.
I still believe that Not All Democrats are EVIL.
Hanno comments on Oct 26, 2020:
It really depends on your definition of evil. My wife had to go through extreme emotional and medical trauma when her baby died and she had to wait three days to get a mediCal abortion, since abortions are only done in two places in our country legally. To me that is evil. Including only the Christian god and not allowing any of the others and forcing everyone to conform to your own god, is in my view evil. Who gives you the right to tell others who they may or may not marry? To me that is evil. Now I agree with the law and order and pretty much else and am not a Dem supporter... however be careful not to be evil yourself by claiming others to be evil just because they don’t believe what you do.

Hanno comments on Oct 20, 2020:
Racial diversity in humans are among the most beautiful and interesting phenomena in nature. We should cherish the fact that the races are so different with their own unique features, strengths and weaknesses. How boring would it be if all the races run equally fast or swam equally well? Or all looked the same, behaved the same, played all the same sports, worshipped the same gods, dressed the same, made the same food... All the truly interesting things about humans are that we are so diverse... long may that continue.

Just looking at the impact the 80 000 South Africans are making in NZ, it is sad that we were not allowed to do that in our birth land. Zebedielia... once the largest citrus farm in the world... employing thousands from production all down the supply chain. Destroyed. ESKOM, once the most efficient producer of electricity in the world, employed tens of thousands. Ruined. SAA, once the safest airline in the world. Bankrupt.

Hanno comments on Sep 28, 2020:
As was pointed out many times before... you are confusing non-belief with anti-religion. As a Christian you are anti-Islam, anti-Buddhism, anti-Hindoesm... the list goes on. Christians been killing these other religions for centuries, and visa versa. And what is worse, you believe these people are to spent eternity in hell. Communist regimes are anti-religion, however they did not kill people because they are Christians or Muslim etc... they do it because that is what caused them to rebel against the totalitarian rule. They killed agnostics and atheists with equal speed if they rebelled. Nothing to do with religion. The actual amount of people killed by atheism is minuscule... Mainly because atheists/agnostics are very poor at organising themselves if they are not part of something else such as socialism/communism.

The oppression and enslavement of the African Boers.
Hanno comments on Sep 27, 2020:
The more important issue I have with this picture is the visualisation that the Boer is a victim. The Boer will NEVER be VICTIMS. No one has ever ruled us for a significant period of time. If you mistreat us we will leave and become even more successful than before. We have done this many times, first we left France in 1200-1500 when they forced Catholicism on us. We became very successful there, however when the Spanish wanted to rule us, we took our German and Viking wives and came to South Africa. Others went to the US... they became Americans (along with the British, Italians etc, ) and lost touch with the Boer, but we are the same people. We then left the Cape when the English treated us like second class citizens. We created very successful republics. We lost the war but won our country and ruled ourselves from 1910 to 1994. We lost it again, because we could not get Apartheid right and did more harm than good. For our punishment we had to give up our country. Now we are leaving again... Australia, New Zealand, The UK, back to the Netherlands/Belgium, and the US. We are always the top performers wherever we go. You can oppress us, however we will NEVER be victims and we will always come out on top because we are BOER!
The oppression and enslavement of the African Boers.
Hanno comments on Sep 27, 2020:
Thanks for posting. As a Boer myself, I do feel however a bit that I need to point out that the modern definition of a Boer is not what it used to be. An English speaker had to almost loose the ability to speak English before he would be considered a Boer. Very few English speakers were ever considered Boers. Originally the Boer was only the sub group of the Afrikaner who refused to accept British rule (like they refused Catholic rule between 1200 and 1500, and then Spanish rule between 1600 and 1700 AD. This led the larger Afrikaner group to leave Europe between 1650 and 1750.) They left the Afrikaner behind in the Cape and moved to Natalia and later created the Boer republics in 1820-1885 when the British tried to rule them after British defeated the Dutch in 1820. They fought the English through two wars of independence 1880s and 1899-1902. The Boer concept was diluted by the South African Party and later National Party between 1910 and 1960 to heal the wounds of the second war... the Afrikaner refused to come and help the Boer against the English. All white (and some coloured) Afrikaans speaker was purposefully grouped as Afrikaners, and it was forgotten who fought and who did not. The Modern idea of the Boer raised again when the country was lost to the ANC, and now suddenly everyone is a Boer. That annoys me a bit... but who cares.

Hanno comments on Sep 24, 2020:
During the early 1980’s Demoina floods in Mozambique, white Souths African military in uniform on military helicopters flew and saved civilians from roof tops, distributed food and medical aid. None of those Mozambican people thought the Apartheid monsters are attacking. They were very great full. Now there were police and medical staff and helicopters available, however they could not possible deal with the scale of operation needed. The South African airforce at the time could and did. They did not force anyone to leave a roof, or take a food packet or medical help. Now why would you frame the question in such a way that your own military, that is the best suited to rapidly distribute and administer vaccines to your people, as a bad thing?
Trump Declines To Promise Peaceful Transfer Of Power : NPR
Hanno comments on Sep 24, 2020:
Context... so important. Then important words... suggested, probable, allegedly, arguably... whenever you see these words, generally it means whatever the person is saying has no proof and is opinion or hearsay or just made up. In this case, only half the story. Hillary advised Joe NOT to concede the election, does not matter the legality of it. This was stated long before Trump made any such statements. Then, there are actual issues with mail in ballots. That is why it is used in most countries for less important or non-binding referendums, but never for elections or important decisions. Even for the worlds poster-girl and government today - New Zealand. NZ will not use mail in voting next month... with very good reasons. Yet this article states “his baseless statements on mail in voting”. That tells you a lot of the context, does it not? Now if you read what he has actually said... he intends to contest the election only if he there is mail in voting that indicates large scale fraud etc... All indications are that he will not contest if he loses and it has been a fair election. Now compare that to what Hillary told Joe and what has been repeated by many on the left... reject outcome whatever the reason if Trump wins. Spot the difference? Would you concede the election if it is close and their is clear or at least very likely signs of fraud?

We allow religious people to have their fantasies. It makes them happy and allows them to deal with their lives. As an agnostic I also have my coping mechanisms However please don’t force me to believe your fantasy or make me say it’s true. And I won’t force you to be part of my coping mechanism. This way we are cool and live happily next to each other. Ditto for men who want to be woman, and women who want to be men. However, you are always male and female. You cannot change that. There is the small group that are neither/either, I am not talking about them. They are special cases and need to be dealt with case by case. If you want to be treated as a woman, by all means. If you are an adult (in age and development!), you can even have bits of you changed. And we will treat you as a woman. We might snigger sometimes just like we snigger at some religious people (and religious people snigger at atheists). Not nice but we are also human. However, don’t force your views on me (religious or sexual) or my children. If you want to share a bathroom with my daughters, chop of those two little balls first and you are welcome to do so. That is the only view of mine I would like to insist on. I wish you happiness whatever life route you choose.

INDOCTRINATING THE YOUTH “It is imperative that our classrooms be free of indoctrination.
Hanno comments on Sep 21, 2020:
The issue with teachers , and more so professors, is that they believe they are the most intelligent and their jobs the most important. And hence they should be revered, and earn the highest salaries. This is true of (almost) all academics. In truth, they are not and cannot get top jobs or start profitable businesses. They primarily have to communicate with children or the inexperienced and hence get an inflated view of their own opinions. When reality sets in that others are more successful than them, especially the “lower peoples” such as tradespeople and small business owners, envy sets in. The great equaliser is socialism and indeed in socialist states, academics and teachers are more revered and are more “fairly” remunerated. So teachers and academics find it easy to switch to a far left wing mindset they believe to be more fair to them. The solution is of course to focus more heavily on education and attract better teachers and reward them better and kick out the poor ones. Unfortunately teacher unions put a stop to that.

You are grouping a very large group of people into one group. What about mental disability... or the disability to be born to abusive parents? Or the disability to have the wrong skin colour or sexual preference? Or to be born in the wrong country or religion? There are many disabilities other than the obvious physical ones. It becomes very complex and there are no simple solutions. The issue how you play off different disabilities and rewarding merit. If you stop rewarding actual merit you very quickly fall into mediocrity leading to failure of the whole system. You need to distinguish between equality of opportunity and equality of outcome goals you are setting. We are not all equal. However we all need a fair go at life. Now any additional support you give to disabled people necessarily discriminates against able people... whatever your definition of disabled/able is. It becomes a question of equality of opportunity and what you need to do to ensure we all have a fair go at being successful. That necessarily require you to discriminate against the able. Is being black a disability? Today is seen as such by many. Should governments reward companies for hiring disabled people? Should government give preference to disabled hires for its own staff. Or make legislation that allow disabled to compete more fairly? And who is to pay for all that... because it does come at a cost. If it was cheaper to hire disabled people we all would do it. Providing disability access cost money and has to be enforced by legislation, else no one would do it. Sad but true. What we can look forward is that technology is reducing the need to discriminate against able people all the time and hopefully this will become easier and easier to solve in the years to come.

When I was beginning to understand the difference amongst theist, atheist, anti-theist and agnostic,...
Hanno comments on Sep 12, 2020:
Gnostics are the guys who make the stuff up as they go along. Theists are the ones who believes stuff others made up as they went along. Anti-theists are to theism a bit like antifa is to fascism. Atheist believe that they don’t believe. Agnostics just don’t believe.
Carbon Dioxide - here is something from science they don't tell you.

You are trying to solve an emotional argument with a logical solution...
A great idea, no?
Hanno comments on Sep 11, 2020:
Sorry this is bullshit. ALL modern paints use titanium dioxide as base. It is also uses in finer form as sunscreen. It does not break down pollutants into “harmless” nitrates and carbonates. Nitrates in any case is a fertiliser and a serious pollutant in water systems.
Anyone been to a Biden rally?

Funny, even though it is clearly photoshopped... Must say, I just love touching my wife in public... not THAT inappropriately... but still... after all these years still nice to touch her bottom.
Today (Thursday) we review the trend of "blackwashing" American culture.
Hanno comments on Sep 10, 2020:
The golden girls... what will they be called now? The bronze girls? We are All for black shows... we loved the Cosby show (yes you did... don’t deny it). We all watched Fresh Prince. Just come up with your own ideas and we will all watch it. Ditto for woman washing male roles.
Why don’t blacks help blacks
Hanno comments on Sep 10, 2020:
Do rich white athletes donate? I know of many rich blacks who donate heavily and have charities named after them. It may be that on average whites give more than blacks and blacks receive more than whites... I don’t know... However some blacks most definitely donate to charity.
Woman votes topless after getting stopped at polls wearing anti-Trump shirt
Hanno comments on Sep 10, 2020:
More interesting is that she thought an American flag was a pro-Trump symbol. Tells you a lot about this woman.
Experts be like.

Argh... that is so true that it is sad. I work to hard... getting old... life passing by. Fuck this shit.
Judge Orders Detroit Police Not to Use Batons, Tear Gas Against Protesters for Two Weeks ...
Hanno comments on Sep 6, 2020:
This is really fake news... The court order specifically states “... without just cause”. The judgement means nothing... the police is not supposed to use any action on the public without just cause. And this does not stop them from doing any action appropriate if they have just cause. So the judge just told them to be doing what they should be doing anyway.
Over 30 farm murders in South Africa in June 2020 - YouTube
Hanno comments on Sep 6, 2020:
Even inside South Africa... this is not reported and only isolated and extreme cases are briefly noted. These are not criminal farmers... oppressors or racists... they are old defenceless people. Yet they kill one criminal in the US who resist arrest...
This would never happen because it makes sense.
Hanno comments on Sep 6, 2020:
Who killed those 464 people?
Truth in advertising!!! [youtu.be]
Hanno comments on Sep 6, 2020:
Why is this still up in YouTube and his whole channel not banned?

To all my Victoria Australia Friends, neighbours & family.
Hanno comments on Sep 4, 2020:
How is the Victorian outbreak different to the Auckland outbreak? Both times incompetent governments...
Is this group an echo chamber?
Hanno comments on Sep 4, 2020:
I believe Remi banned a troll once... I support free speech but when one has been ID’d as a troll... kick them out!
Riddle time! You walk in a room and on the bed there are 2 dogs, 4 cats, 1 giraffe, 5 cows and a ...
Hanno comments on Sep 3, 2020:
None. I am in a wheelchair. The bed is upside down and the chair is with the animals on the upturned bed.
Coronavirus PCR testing probably inaccurate & unreliable - straight out of both sides of the CDC's ...
Hanno comments on Sep 3, 2020:
I still need someone to please help me understand. Since February 2020 I was led to believe that all data indicated that Covid does not kill healthy people and only kills the very old who also have co morbid conditions. I selected my own staff according to these factors who was to be allowed to be essential staff and who was not. Why is the 31/8 CDC report controversial? Does it not confirm what we always understood?
It’s official; capitalism is a disease and 31 genders are science.

If shrinks worked they would all be out of work... It’s the repeat customers that keeps them going.
