My Fun With Nestles

Nestles. Has lots of feel good stuff.

Recently, Nestles ran a TV ad which - par for the course - portrayed a white male as a bumbling moron,(trying to stuff a mini-refrigerator into an overhead luggage rack on an airplane) while a female, portrayed as an intelligent and self-assured citizen of tomorrow, looked on, smirking and smiling.

Something snapped inside. I guess it was the last straw.

We have all watched for years as our Movies, TV, magazines - everything -   has shown us(white American males) to be idiots, imbeciles, morons, clumsy and simple-minded oafs, while at the same time vicious warmongers, slavers, homophones, bigots, racists and sexists - yet somehow very EVIL and able to destroy the world.

 What the hell... can't be both, can it?

So, I shot an E-mail off to Nestles telling them I was tired of this sort of thing and have accordingly discontinued using any of their products.

I received a very polite reply from their customer relations department, who informed me they have forwarded my comments to their marketing depart, the people responsible for the ad.

As, expected, marketing has been silent as a graveyard. So, I just sent my reply to their reply. I was polite:

Thank you for your timely response  As you stated, you sent my comments to your marketing department, where they have been - as I expected - ignored, and most likely trashed. It is the very place where the individuals responsible for your advertising are the very same people who have been consciously and doggedly following a concerted effort by themselves and others of their ilk to denigrate, debase, ridicule and embarrass the average white American male.
Since you are an integral part of the Nestle hierarchy, I have no doubt as to your awareness of this decades long assault directed against American males who are not members of any minority. Like most males, I have generally ignored this barrage of venom and hatred, but as of late I have grown weary of it all.

So...  As I mentioned previously,  I have decided to no longer support companies that allow this sort of conduct by their employees and agents.

I wish you luck with your policy of slapping the faces of 100 million American citizens, many of whom are now  - like me - starting to tire of this endless assault against those very humans that literally created everything you now utilize and enjoy.  

I suspect this kind the communication never reaches the upper echelons of decision-making, particularly when middle management has  personal agendas contrary to the best interests of their employers. It will be most interesting to watch just how long Nestles - or any company -  can continue to prosper with this kind of strategy , one where its advertising attacks fully half of its customer base.

A rather short-sighted and extremely foolish policy in my view, but it's a free country. Nestles can - and will - go their own way, and so will I. 

Thanking you once again,

I'm certain it won't change a thing, but  at least I got it off my chest. 

As an aside, search "Nestle ads". You will see their advertising is almost exclusively directed towards women. One gets the feeling that the world Nestle exists in has no men, anywhere.

Climate Disruption

"Climate disruption". Been happening since the dawn of time.
One of these will definitely disrupt your sunny day picnic climate. 

People have been taught to cope with change by thinking it’s not all bad, but climate change is all bad, according to a climate scientist at Argonne National Laboratory who says it’s time to replace the term climate change, itself a replacement for global warming, with a new term: climate disruption.

Liberals, Progressives, Democrats, Socialists and Marxists all have a standard playbook maneuver - an insidious frontal attack on common sense and conscience through language manipulation.


The deaf became "hearing impaired".
The blind became "vision impaired".
The crippled became "mobility impaired."

All that's not too bad, it helps weak stomached unicorn riders cope better with their version of reality.

But a far more subversive  manipulation become obvious when:

Illegal aliens become "Illegal immigrants", and then "undocumented immigrants."
Homosexuals become "gays".
Abortionists become "Pro-choice."

Each euphemism converts a negative association into a positive one. Then they hammer and endlessly repeat the new version until it has saturated itself into every cranium, and presto! Something negative became something positive.

Unfortunately, it seems that around 51% of adult Americans are uneducated enough, ignorant enough and uncaring enough that this tactic has worked quite well, resulting in the Marxist/Socialist mess we find ourselves neck deep in today.

At one time - when IQ was an important measure of mental ability - we had standard gauges and terms to identify levels of  stupidity:

IQ of 0-25  : Idiot
IQ of 26-50: Imbecile
IQ of 51-70: Moron

Yes, that's true.

Then, due to the pressures of political correctness, they were all lumped into one category -- mentally retarded. But that was far too harsh for the unicorn riders, so the new definition became "Intellectually challenged" which sounds so much nicer, and idiot, imbecile and moron became everyday insults instead of useful measures.

Now, we are hearing things like:

Intergenerational sex advocate, previously know as a pedophile.
Minor-attracted person, once known as a child molester.

The list is long a growing longer.  However, you can bet big money they will never change a "rapist" into a "sexually overactive male". Labels like racist, bigot, redneck, white trash -, labels they love and use over and over - will be with us forever.

None the less, the deaf are still deaf, the blind are still blind, and an undocumented immigrant is still a border-jumping illegal law breaker.

Now, since global warming and climate change have lost their ability to frighten the uneducated, we will now start hearing  about "climate disruption".

Watch for it. They will all parrot this new catch phrase to death.

Those of you that can recite the alphabet can start yawning now.

Those of you that can recite the alphabet forwards and backwards can have a big belly laugh now.

Those of you who don't know what the alphabet is and has someone reading this to you (unlikely),

Elephants To The Rescue

A possible "best use" for the Osprey:   Transporting
bomb sniffing elephants to your local airport. At least
 no troops would be killed when it falls out of the sky.
The pilots would just have to take their chances.

* * * * * * * * * *
JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Armed with a sharp sense of smell, dogs have a long history of detecting explosives for their human handlers. Trained rats sniff out land mines from old African wars. In Croatia, researchers have tried to train bees to identify TNT.
Now elephants. New research conducted in South Africa and involving the U.S. military shows they excel at identifying explosives by smell, stirring speculation about whether their extraordinary ability can save lives.
"They work it out very, very quickly," said Sean Hensman, co-owner of a game reserve where three elephants passed the smell tests by sniffing at buckets and getting a treat of marula, a tasty fruit, when they showed that they recognized samples of TNT, a common explosive, by raising a front leg.
* * * * * * * * * * 
Next thing you know the military - and a host  of defense contractors - will want a few billion taxpayer dollars to design and build special transports for these bomb sniffing elephants. Cattle growers will want gobs of  money to raise herds of elephants for the military - it will be much more profitable than raising cattle - and politicians will vie for the privilege of putting the all new,  but prohibitively expense,  training centers in their respective States. Instead of these additional billions, let's use the Osprey!

Never forget the Osprey.. We have spent billions and billions of taxpayer dollars over three decades making this unstable and idiotic metal brick fly, a vehicle that is still not approved for general use in the military because of its lamentable safety record. The reason all that money was thrown into the bottomless pit of the military/industrial complex?

The Osprey is claimed to be about 20% faster than an ordinary helicopter, about 50 mph faster. It is supposed to be able to get our troops to some place where they weren't 20% faster, you know, like Benghazi.

Perhaps that 20% faster could be beneficial if the bomb the elephant needed to sniff out was a time bomb.
