Linh: Sorry to read about this poor man. Like Unamuno said, "to pity is to love."

So you know, Ex-Taylor Councilman Gene Gallagher is also "Missing." This past Tuesday, Lackawanna County Judge, Michael Barrasse sentenced Gene to a maximum of ten (10) months in county jail and two (2) months house arrest for D.U.I. and two crimes stemming from the stupid voter fraud incident which he vividly described during our visit to Old Forge, Julia's Bar & Restaurant. The cops immediately cuffed Gene and put him in jail. Post sentencing, Scranton Times-Tribune quoted him as saying, "I'm highly motivated to be right, do right and be a productive person." Still campaigning?

Come Fall, and as more and more locals are getting locked-up, I'd like to visit Gene Gallagher at Lackawanna County jail, and offer encouragement, something which I do not have much in surplus.

Otherwise, I am pretty busy trying to get whatever school bus runs become available. This past Friday, I had one for Scranton's Friends of the Poor." For seven hours, I picked up approximately 40 poor people who lived at N. Scranton Project Housing, and drove them to enjoy a day (free-of-charge) at Montage Mountain "Water Park." The kids and parents had good time, and I dropped them off at home around 7:45 P.M. Our company dispatcher told me that Summer 2015 is "the worst financial year ever for locals who want to hire bus service for weddings, bachelor parties."

Another tragedy hit the Taylor area two weeks ago; this time effecting a rather upper class family. The owners folks of Taylor's Pine Hill Golf Course had a son (16) who committed suicide. The young man frequently worked maintenance at the golf course, and his parents reportedly pushed him to attend Summer school at both Marywood and University of Scranton. A Taylor friend who worked with the kid indicated to me, "the boy was a good worker but he was showing serious signs of distress."

Apparently, he actually cried on-the-job, and allegedly made public his complaint how he "was not allowed to have a life, be a kid." He had a girlfriend but the parents insisted on his attendance at Bible Summer Camps, activities which tore him further away from happiness. In the end, he shot himself inside bedroom, and left suicide note for parents that said, "I will not be a burden to you anymore, goodbye."

Carol's health somehow agonizingly declines day-by-day, and I sincerely hope your plans to teach in Leipzig are going well. Am wondering how many N. African immigrants are getting into Germany; I'm a bit sorry (selfish?) you're likely going to slip "out of Dodge, and miss Pope Francis's visit to Philadelphia..., maybe not? At any rate, I wish you and Linky well.

Yo Chuck,

Though my new job won't require any German, I'm trying to teach myself the basic so I can at least understand the shop signs and function somewhat inside stores. I studied French as a kid, then lived in Italy for two years. Just now, I went on Yahoo France and could basically figure out all the news articles. Some high class Brazilian prostitute has just written an expose about her sexual adventure with Cristian Ronaldo, the Portuguese soccer player. She was a Miss Bumbum. That is, she had the best buttocks. Then I read about Stéphane Bern. When I go into Yahoo Deustchland, however, I'm almost as lost as if was staring at Japanese. I have a lot of work to do, and very little time to do it. Many Germans are excellent English speakers, however. Of all non-English speaking countries, I'd say that Iceland, Holland and Germany have the most proficient English speakers.

P.S. When I visited Chuck two months ago, I met ex-Taylor Councilman Gene Gallagher at Julia's, a local bar. Gallagher struck me as very much the unctuous politician. Knowing that Gallagher was in legal troubles, I brought up Marion Barry, the DC mayor who was locked up for six months on a drug charge. Released, Barry became mayor again. I joked to Gallagher his own political ambition, then, was not dead. Gallagher didn't seem too amused.

Chuck Olroski said...

Linh: I wish you luck with German language self-study, and the name Miss Bumbum made me chuckle. As a distracted student Riverside High School Junior and Senior (1968 & 1969), I took German language, and our teacher & Freshman football coach, was Dennis Kryzanoski, nicknamed "Krock" sometimes called "Bodie."

Learning German at first was fun, challenging, and Mr. Kryzanoski wisely required us to learn the old poem "Die Lorelei." To this day, I find myself reciting the poem lines, and forgive the spelling, "Ich weiss nicht, was sol es bedeuten, das ich so traurig bin." In fact, these days while driving out-of-control students to school, I get on bus interior loudspeaker, and loudly babble a mixture of threatening (meaningless) German words, for example, "Schtoppen sie sprechen einsatzgruppen... fierstehen sie, der um die welt!

(Note: In Krock's high school German class, a kid made a joke about how to say "brassiere" in German; schtopem frum floppen)

One last goofy memory?

As noted, Linh, German teacher Dennis Kryzanoski was serious. Often, he'd make students read German words, check for both pronunciation and meaning comprehension. I recall one day when it was my good friend Jim "Josh" Hronich's turn to read. A handsome kid, never studied, but with high I.Q., held the top student score in S.A.T.'s, Josh came upon the word "fuchs," with an umlaut u.

To this day, I can still see Josh grimace and struggle for proper pronunciation of "fuchs." A couple minutes passed, Krock awaited Josh's attempt at proper pronunciation, and in frustration, Josh shook head, and clearly blurted out "FUCKS?!!" Krock squirmed as students laughed, including a couple mini-skirted girls who blushed, giggled, and drew knees close together. Not amused, Krock shouted, "No, no, Mr. Hronich! You forgot the umlaut 'u,' it's pronounced "foooks."

As I went deeper into high school study, German words frustratingly got longer & longer. To this date, the last time I heard German being spoken (in public) was January 1981, a day layover at Amsterdam Airport. Outside a cafe, I sat nearby two German men and their families (including toddlers), and to my delight & challenge, they spoke German. Every now & then they'd break, speak English, and I caught a conversational sequence about their exciting experience with Amsterdam prostitutes. Bear with me here Linh? I suppose the aristocratic looking daddies gents were "fooking around" while on vacation.

Great that you remembered mentioning Mayor Marion Barry to incarcerated Gene Gallagher, as a symbol of hope! All my life, be it blessing or curse, I am (sometimes fatally) attracted to rogue characters like Marion Barry, Gene G., Chicago Mayor Blago, Jack Reese, Hustler Larry Flynnt, and "illegal dumper" Tina Daley. (Note: As the PA Department of Environmental Protection charged Tina with illegal dumping on her property, and the court handed down a prison term, I wrote a letter to the Pocono Record on her behalf. Of course, such expression was not popular within the environmental industry where I worked, managed cleanup projects)

Wish you and all Herr & Fraulein Blog commenters ... guten tag!

Yo Linh,

Just read about your upcoming visit to Leipzig. You'll have no trouble communicating at all, unless you actually try to learn German. An English friend who has lived in Germany for the past 25 years told me that as soon as the locals learn that you speak English, they switch to English, because they know it and so 'communication is easier'. The only way he could learn German was to refuse to respond unless the person he was talking to would use German.

You are probably aware that in Germany questioning the official Zionist narrative of the Holohoax can land you in prison for up to 5 years. For insight to this you might want to read 'The Great Holocaust Trial' by Michael Hoffman. The defendant in that trial was Ernst Zündel who did end up in prison for 5 years, and his defense lawyer, Sylvia Stolz, got sentenced to 3.5 years for merely relating in court proceedings Zündel's claims as part of her defense of him.

I can send you a PDF of 'The Great Holocaust Trial' if you want.

Also, here is a link to a video presentation (with English subtitles) given by Sylvia Stolz shortly before she got thrown in the slammer.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoJY5cBxmdw

I also have the transcript of the English subtitles of that video if you would like them. The transcript has numerous typos, but it's easily understandable. The most important statement therein, in my estimation is the following one by Judge Meinerzhagen: "it is completely irrelevant whether the holocaust really did happen or did not happen. It is illegal to deny it in Germany , and that is all that counts in court."

Google Ernst Zündel or Sylvia Stolz for more infomation. You don't have to have the umlaut above the u when you google.

You will be able to discuss this sort of thing privately with open minded people, but it might be wise to be careful in public presentations.

It's sad how things are turning out under the scourge of zionism and jewish power, here and elsewhere as well as in Germany.

Linh Dinh said...

Hi Rudy,

Yes, please send me the PDF. My email is linhdinh99 at yahoo dot com. Thanks!

I do not know about the Ernst Zündel case but will google him now.

x larry said...

rudy,
i thank you for the above leads. i've watched the holocaust trial of 1985 documentary (just news footage) just now, and am now begy
it is all too much--is what i have always believed, false? (yes, pretty much, and i hadn't the slightest clue)--yet it's right there, it seems. but like all seeming truths, one has to wonder.
but from the little i've seen so far (this rekindles an obsession of a few years ago, long since buried till now because it's all such a headeache) ernst zundel seems mainly in the right. i disagree (for now) with his pro-christian stance, but is this because my earliest brainwashing was so effective (anti-christian)? crazy-making stuff, but it must be faced, and over and over again in one's life.
it strikes me as courageous (because it's so unpopular) your speaking out and linh's speaking out and allowing this viewpoint on his blog. it fits with what i've slowly formulated for myself and tried to influence others with: whatever govt and the media tell you, do and think the opposite. they literally lie constantly, they know exactly what they're doing and they know just how effective it is. so as individuals you have to go back and completely revise, you have to first take that huge leap (this usually takes a good year or two or three), triggered by 911 for many, then continually go back into everything you ever believed and try to understand all the influences on you--but the one constant is always the media, which influences everyone, and without any doubt is jewish controlled (i'm no 'anti-semite', but have simply looked up powerful media figures, especially studio owners and producers, to find an almost complete jewish lock on it--now why??). so what are the messages of every movie and tv show going back to the beginning of this form of propaganda? because EVERY ONE is propaganda, there's now way a single film produced by hollywood is in any way innocent, all are there solely for a propaganda purpose, and all these purposes coincide and are actually one single purpose.
anyway, it does make one think of christian ideas of evil and satan, regardless.
thank you

x larry said...

sorry, first sentence above cut off. should finish 'am now beginning to watch a speech by sylvia stolz' etc, with this link
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoJY5cBxmdw

x larry said...

still, the banker/jewish/communist idea is suspect? i've heard it before. can't perhaps disagree with the first two, but communism? is this the vast jewish conspiracy we're told it is? is marx evil? are all jews, in fact? how about freud, or wilhelm reich?

Linh Dinh said...

Hi x larry,

No one can possibly say that all or even most people of any group is evil. Evil is in the heart and thus individual. That said, each group has its history and beliefs and so will behave differently. Collectively, Vietnamese do not act like Irish or blacks, etc.

Do check out Laurent Guyénot's "Tracking the roots of Zionism and imperial russophobia" and Israel Shamir's "A Cold Summer for Europe".

Linh Dinh said...

Hi x larry,

As for Communism, you'd be one of the first to be locked up or killed, since they hate free spirits of all kinds. With your free thinking, loose lips and fondness for drinking and drugs, you'd be branded as a reactionary and a decadent in no time flat. It's a good thing you took opium in Vietnam after its orthodox Communism days were over.


Linh

Linh Dinh said...

P.S. Communists are the most dogmatist and intolerant. They hate everyone and everything that falls outside their control freak program. There are so many living witnesses to orthodox Communism, so what I'm saying here can be easily verified. It's also plentifully documented in reams and reams of writing in all languages. It is remarkable that Nazism is universally condemned when Communism, which killed and tortured so many more people, for much longer and in more countries, is still seen as cool by decadent or hypocritical westerners.

Rudy said...

In connection with Ernst Zündel and ‘The Great Holocaust Trial’:
Along with Germany, it is illegal to question the official Zionist narrative of the holocaust in 16 other countries. From the article at the following link it seems not unreasonable to suggest that in the not too distant future questioning the official version of 9/11 will become illegal. x larry, your spot on observation about the entertainment media is also true of the news media. Essentially all MSM is propaganda controlled by jewish power. Indeed, “Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that.. I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.” – Ariel Sharon, Prime Minister of Israel. Strong evidence exists of core complicity of Israel in the events of 9/11, so a little discursive reflection suggests that the fabricators of the stories about the holocaust and 9/11 work hand in hand.
http://www.ae911truth.org/news/225-news-media-events-sefi.html

If you want some eye opening information, read “Against Our Better Judgment: The hidden history of how the U.S. was used to create Israel” by Alison Weir. Alison Weir is the founder of ‘If Americans Knew’ ( http://www.ifamericansknew.org/ )

There’s an awful lot of stuff going on that never gets out through the MSM.

Sharon’s statement explicitly and clearly implies that the U.S. is a colony of Israel in all but name. The vast majority of Americans, lost in their screens, fantasies and self-involvement haven’t a clue that this is the case.

Linh doesn’t flinch when telling it like it is, and because of that his work is important.

x larry said...

linh,
thanks for comments and links. i've read shamir before and, if i can't perhaps say i LIKE him i thought some of his stuff rather earth-shattering. his essay on pol pot NOT being the mass murderer he's painted to be is one.
it is true that i'm considered worthless and decadent even by my own family. i find it a bit strange as i'm mainly just totally depressed--i've just awoken from an early sleep in such a panic i couldn't breathe and had to throw on clothes and take a walk. as a rule i find life, and specifically human life, at least in it's present form, horrifying and unbearable. hate is in the air, hate is everywhere.
can you tell me your opinion on marx?
rudy, thanks for comments and links. what is msm?
thank you

x larry said...

shamir also has that very strong christian angle which, again, makes him a bit suspect to me as i have always thought the religion to be laughable (again, i try to once more rethink my past, my upbringing, formative thoughts--and where they came from, how they were completely manipulated--so i'm not at all sure). as a young child--my parents had just left the catholic church--i remember thinking i wished i could believe but just couldn't. the jesus story, or indeed any 'god' talking to man, say through moses or muhammed, i found utterly not believable. i realise i'm lucky not to be killed with thoughts like these, and may yet be one day. i mean no offense to believers, but think i have a right to state my own beliefs, so contradictory. shamir on christianity, i don't remember the exact quote, but he said it was the only hope for the world against jewry, which has been systematically destroyed for centuries.
again, in the end i just think, 'the horror, the horror'. i'm not cut out for it, this 'reality'.
thanks again

x larry said...

to me communism has always meant something like plain decency. i've always seen it, like the rest of life, from my own childhood perspective--idealistic, completely unrealistic. wishing for another world. (i saw so much later, in spain, banners hanging from windows pleading 'otro mundo es posible'. i grew up in my own 'otro mundo', because 'our' very own 'real' world is so totally horrifying--i've always wondered why people go on living at all when they're SO miserable and really just LIVE TO SPREAD THE MISERY. as a sort of friend once said, to me, 'why not just off yourself?')

Rudy said...

Hi x larry,

MSM (Main Stream Media)

Your current state of mind sounds similar to mine much of the time. It would be nice if truth could cut through the noise once in a while.

Linh Dinh said...

Hi x larry,

I'm not qualified to talk about Marx. I'm working on a Woodbury Postcard, and will head over there for a third visit tomorrow.

A computer accident made all of my photos disappear from its two main storage drives, so now I'm slowly fixing the problem...

I'm sorry to hear about your depression, man. There is no easy fix to it...

As for Israel Shamir, I'm not really a fan of his. His overview of contemporary Europe, though, I find useful. American and Israeli sponsored wars have sent millions of African and Middle Eastern refugees into Europe. It is a disaster that will only get worse.


Linh

x larry said...

thanks linh and rudy for responses. yes, linh, i was surprised to see you recommend shamir as i think i brought him up once or twice and you didn't seem impressed. he does seem to have an agenda. that said, i'm halfway through that article you linked to, and find it very lively and enjoyable, if totally depressing. thanks again
