Today is cold, Sojourner…

… I still could not accepted…

“The Parting Glass”

by Shaun Davey

“Forever In Your Debt”

With thanks to those who blew the wind,

And those who sailed the ship,

We sailed it tight against the tide,

And I shall be forever in your debt.

All the money that e’er I had

I spent it in good company

And all the harm I’ve ever done

Alas, it was to none but me

And all I’ve done for want of wit

To memory now, I can’t recall

So fill to me the parting glass

Good night and joy be to you all!

Fill to me the parting glass

And drink a health whate’er befalls

Then gently rise and softly call

Good night and joy be to you all!

Of all the comrades that e’er I had

They’re sorry for my going away

And all the sweethearts that e’er I had

They’d wish me one more day to stay.

Since it fell into my lot

that I should rise,and you should not

I’ll gently rise and softly call

Good night and joy be to you all!

But since it fell into my lot

That I should rise and you should not

I’ll gently rise and softly call

Good night and joy be to you all!

So fill to me the parting glass

And drink a health whate’er befalls

Then gently rise and softly call

Good night and joy be to you all!

The New Abnormal

The friends of David Williams sadly announce his passing on February 20, 2021.

Followers of this blog will greatly miss his dedication to seeking out truth in times present and past. Going forward, he would have wanted us to continue to always ask questions and question answers.

Thank you Dave for your mission to help all of us to live the lives we were meant to live.

What will be unsheathed in 2021?

For the new year, we greet you, our earthling friends with another Iron Maiden song traditionally.:)

2020 was a very bad year, right? Everyone cursed the year. It was just a year. A string of numbers. 2020 has been convicted by humanity, that has constantly pointed to someone else or a thing as criminal and has cleared himself of everything for centuries. 2020 will be eternally guilty in human history. Because humanity is not guilty at all! The people who oppress and mock those who say the rottenness of this order, and who support the capitalists, imperialists and who exploit religion of all kinds, are not guilty! Guilty is 2020! The judge has already broken the nib of his pen!

My dear friends, this song was inspired by the R101 Airship, which fell in 1930. An epic song with Bruce Dickenson lyrics and Steve Harris music. For me, why this song of 2021? Because R101 accident was an important accident in terms of aviation history. And in this prepared file, pre and post accident reports can be found. With R101, which was the pride of the United Kingdom, wanted to reach its colonies -like India- with the shortest way at that time. And this Airship, which was 3 times the size of a Boing 727, was used. However, there were so many technical errors and many elephants in the corner in the background of the crash. Following came to my mind when I’ve read all this: “What great greed!”

That is what 2021 means for me. In my view it will be a year in which greed will peak. The bosses will be more greedy, the middle class, which has been rolled over last year, will feel as if it is breathing down; because the greed of the global capitalists has no limits. Things are easier when there are a lot of idiots already supporting them!

And what I want for 2021: I do not want the oppressed to raise their heads just to seek their rights! I wish them to be greedy! I want them to unsheathe and reveal all their feelings, thoughts, desires! Because simply saying “I am claiming my rights” has become something that the capitalists never considered. I wish the working class around the world to be greedy! Because something with the same intensity as the greed of capitalists must appear!

There should no longer be a humanity that you would feel horrified and ashamed of when you look behind you! Humanity should not be a toy in the hands of a handful of rich people! I want to see this flare from 2021! This is my wish and hope for a new year!

-Migo?

-Yes.

-I will be greedy too.

-About what WD?

-You know about my meals, my cookies, and the other stuff like more going outside and more joy with lady dogs?

-We should bargain on that.

-What bargain you alien! Oh come on! I had thought after surgery you changed. But nothing changed, I see. No bargain. I am an independent dog. I will do whatever I want! This is my own right! And…

-I forgot to buy beer, I think we should go out.

-Beer, yeas! Lets go Migo!

……….

Migo did not say, but I will say. Happy new year to all my dear beloved friends! And I think he was going to say similar wish but he lost himself to much this planet issues and did not say. Let’s be happy in every moment we caught, while being greedy.;)

Why searching the truth for my homeland, Cyprus, became my reason to breathe again. — Observer of the Near East

Beginning October, I had a very busy day, as for the previous years i was working for the casino industry. I was exhausted and as i was lying on my bed i did some researches regarding Cyprus, on duckduckgo and on twitter especially that day. From these two sources, i was finding information which was fulfilling my appetite for info and analysis i couldn’t find anywhere else at that moment.

That day, my life changed for ever… Few weeks later, i decided to do what i want to do most. Writing and do research through my blog and beyond. Maybe it will be difficult but i were always a dreamer.

How would you feel if you were living in an “aquarium” where your world is described and defined between the glass which pre-determinates your life?

We are all born and we carry some ideas or prejudices about people, groups, ideas far or more closed to us.

What if the world you’re living is all made of false “stars”?

Every human should know his/her real history. Unfortunately, big powers distorted history for some players, especially in the Near East.

Their bloodlust for control did and still are making victims. In this new world order (what they want to impose), the enemy is invisible, but is always there. They want to control all our lives but we have always to fight to keep a controlled distance between these curious eugenics observers and our private lives.

I wish that the “curiosity’ of these “machines” stops to know “all about our private life…

Everything is toxic, my friend

Last year, wow, what a year, it was! It is still not over, it will not be over yet easily. We are in the interim of a new era, my dear earthling friend NFR. It is painful. Of course, this painful situation is only for ordinary people, the bosses are in very good mood, and they even made incredible profits in this period.

This year has been a toxic year. The pollution on the planet seemed to fade at a time, but then it went back to its bad old days in short time. However, the toxicity I’m talking about is a brain toxicity. Humans act like they’re crazy. Logic is in the background. It used to be like that but now more so. And almost everyone lives their days behind a mask. Except for politicians. Since they always wear natural masks, they don’t see it necessary to wear a second mask anyway.

There was something I’ve wanted to do very, very much in this year, but I couldn’t. Maybe later.

Of course, there were other things I wanted to do, but things I couldn’t do.

For example, 14 years old boy who had to go to work instead go to school at his age, because of the ones who closed the schools under the name of quarantine, also because of this system; I’d like to support him holding by the arm of that boy who fell out of exhaustion and hunger on his way home from work and then died in the hospital. I’d like to say him “Hang on, these days will pass.”

For example, when a family, three siblings committed suicide together, because of financial difficulties, I thought I wish I had known them. I don’t know what I could do, but maybe even getting to know WD would have given them a life energy. Still I don’t know.

Maybe I would shown them that comment you wrote years ago, maybe they would give up on their decision, when they have read it; I don’t know.

I have never forgot your words, my dear friend… When I was most angry, or when I was sad, I never forgot. I tried to value it in my own way. You have contributed a lot to me as a friend, even if in a short time compared to human life.

Or, for example, when a good friend of mine was encircled by his government because of he tried to tell the truth by saying “No, that’s wrong”, when they blocked even his communication channels which he could breathe, I’ve wanted to reach out to him and pull him out of that country, – as if I have a giant hand which raises on the sky- but I couldn’t.

Yes I am an extarterrestrial, but you know I never had super powers like WD always wants. 🙂

Anyway, my dear friend, everything is so toxic.

We simply watch how deep this toxicity goes. Maybe when it hits bottom…

But despite all this, just like the poet said:

Wherever you are,

Inside, outside, at class, at work,

Walk on, come at the face of opportunist, mischief, traitor,

hangman.

Spit at their faces.

Resist with a book,

hang on with work,

with nail, with teeth,

with hope, with love, with dream…

Like the poet said, we on this lonely planet, we resist and hang on with all against the brutal capitalists!

And NFR, thank you again for adding value to my life with your existence on this planet.

Sleep under the lights my dear friend, rest in well…

ps: What NFR said was about life in one of my old posts. I didn’t add it here as a link, because if I did, it was going to seem that I directed you to rate that post. They were the promising words about life.

For a new year

We say good bye to 2019 and say hi to 2020 with another Iron Maiden song, Blood Brothers; as you know, our traditional new year song is from Iron Maiden always; Up to Irons! 😉

Here it’s lyrics:

And if you’re taking a walk through the garden of life
What do you think you’d expect you would see?
Just like a mirror reflecting the moves of your life
And in the river reflections of me
Just for a second a glimpse of my father I see
And in a movement he beckons to me
And in a moment the memories are all that remain
And all the wounds are reopening again
We’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers

And as you look all around at the world in dismay
What do you see, do you think we have learned?
Not if you’re taking a look at the war-torn affray
Out in the streets where the babies are burnt
We’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers

There are times when I feel I’m afraid for the world
There are times I’m ashamed of us all
When you’re floating on all the emotion you feel
And reflecting the good and the bad
Will we ever know what the answer to life really is?
Can you really tell me what life is?
Maybe all the things that you know that are precious to you
Could be swept away by fate’s own hand
We’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers

When you think that we’ve used all our chances
And the chance to make everything right
Keep on making the same old mistakes
Makes untipping the balance so easy
When we’re living our lives on the edge
Say a prayer on the book of the dead
We’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers

And yes, I think all we are blood brothers. 2019 is already telling us not to be too hopeful for 2020. From the beginning, this century did not promise much. But perhaps, like the elderls say, “the darkest hour of the night is just before the dawn.” I guess that depends on the intensity of the darkness. So we don’t know how dark it is right now. Lets hope peace on very this day for the new generations of planet earth! They all need this!

While we wait 2020, my all earthling friends, WD and I wish to all you healthy (as mind and body:)), peaceful and happy new year with your loved ones!

Happy New Year!

Those days…

Again one year passed. Days seem so quick, my dear earthling friend NFR. In fact, while in the day, especially as if some days do not pass quickly, I think this is psychological. Collectively, when the years go by, you realize that many thing is empty on this planet. There is no big difference actually between those days when your physical presence was here and these days. Just like in years when we will not be in here. Same order. Of course, some things still surprise me. I think this is about my extra-terrestrial situation.:)

In the Middle East, the cards redeal for the thousandth time. The poor are more poorer. The rich are more richer. Natural wealth has diminished. The distinction between people is the abyss. What surprised me the most was the hatred and anger of people in the last few months; the collective hatred of the lonely masses. I know you’re not familiar with “hate” word my dear friend. You’re a person who loved and respected all living things without discrimination, even the extraterrestrials. I thought I saw all kinds of racism on this planet, dear NFR. But I was wrong.

The kind of repressed racism was much worse. I have seen. And those racists call themselves socialists-communists. Yes, they do. Like Lenin said, they are “useful idiots”, they don’t even know what they did. The racism of literate leftists was worse than the ignorant rightists, I felt this to my bones. I shuddered from fear for the future of this planet and for myself, when seeing them.

You were always worried about the future of this planet, dear NFR. I was not like you, you know. I think I just notice. And now I think you’re in a better place…

Those days were the days I always tried to tell or explain some things to people, you know. Happy and hopefull. But I do not have the second one anymore, so I don’t have “hope”. I am seeing I was wrong, when I said everytime, “there is hope my friend.” No, there is not hope my dear friend. I see now.

I’m not trying to tell anyone anything anymore. The arrogant truths of people are indestructible in the face of the real facts; now I know this. I am not saying “this is like that not the way you know” anymore. Because nobody cares about the facts. Already some facts are so unbelievable than the stories that people believe in more.

Anyway, we missed you my dear earthling friend. I am sorry, this time it was kind of relief letter. I am sorry for this. And WD says hi to you. He is anymore getting old. But you know him, he never accepts he gets old anymore. He is still most handsome and intelligence dog on this planet, you know him.;)

Wherever you are, I hope the lights would always shine on you, my dear earthling friend. Forever!

 

The soul of 2019

We are in here again! I and WD salute you all our earthling friends! As you can guess today, our traditional new year song is from Iron Maiden again; Up to Irons! 😉

I think this one will be more suitable for the soul of year of 2019. Like in its lyrics:
“Have you ever felt the future is the past, but you dont know how…?
A reflected dream of a captured time, is it really now, is it really happening?”

I think when we live in 2019, we will feel that “all these happened before, and it is happenning again.” Maybe we have read similar things in history. Even if the names change, the events are not too much different. I think humans are not getting smarter years by years. They do make same mistakes. I hope everyone can find own way in the oncoming cloudy future. And while doing this, I am sure that friends and the loved ones will give the strength to you when you need it! Because if there is a hope, this hope will come with accompanying of theirs! Whatever it will come, you still don’t lose our hopes in the dream mirrors. 😉

Like WD. 🙂 I have read his yearly horoscope for 2019 to WD. His sign is Taurus. This was written on his horoscope:
“This year, the dinner events which are open buffet in foreign languages, are not expecting to you. People are in crisis now. Even one olive piece is being calculated. We recommend you diet. It is in your hand to change the food pyramid completely.”

His reaction has been like that: “I do not like open buffets already. My choice is always elegant dinners with my lady dog lover privately. If I would go to open buffet, how I can close to my lover in that crowd!”

As you can see he never loses his hope.:))

By the way between us my earthling friends, that horoscope comment that I have read to WD was from Zaytung. Haha! If he realizes…

-Damn you Migo! So, you did read my horoscope from Zaytung! I knew that something was wrong on it! And you are telling these to my beloved followers, my dear friends! How dare you!

-Calm down WD. It was just a joke. 😎

-I cannot be calm down Migo! Do you know how much I was ruined when I thought that I have lost all invites for open buffets, all good foods! My sorrow is not a joke!

-Okay. Do you want to listen what your real horoscope sign tells?

-NO! I do not want! You can foolish me again!

-I will not do in this time.

-No Migo, you broke my heart!

-Are you sure you don’t want to listen. It is really good things are written. Even it says that a new love could be seen in 2019 for you, a special one.

-Really?

-Yes, really.

-All right, just in this time, you can read. But only this time. I am still angry, but I can forgive you just in this time. It’s not because of that I’m curious about my new love; it is because of I am a dog with very big heart!

-Okay I am reading…

🙂

And, WD and I wish to all you healty (as mind and body:)), peaceful and happy new year with your loved ones!

See you next year 😉

Mutlu Yeni Yıllar! — С новым годом! — Happy New Year!

This morning

Again an another year… Today NFR, we, WD and I went out very early hours. We visited three parks(yes, WD could not find his friends and we were searching for them:)) and went to shore. It has been very good for starting the sunday. Normally days pass with rush, and plenty of empty daily business. I will not talk about world politics and etc. These all sucks already, you know. In last week I had an excitement and little bit anger. I do not know why. I was feeling like in this song. 🙂

But today’s morning, all has gone. I am so much relax anymore. After the morning I realized that today was the day your body left this planet; I felt little bit sad, but much more happy due to I knew you. Like Sojourner and I am sure like many other friends of you. Anyway, my dear earthling friend. I hope you are fine wherever you are; and do not forget, you are always being remembered!

Holy criminal code

TASS June 5, 2018

Lost in translation: Russian family mistook Soviet Criminal Code for Quran for generations

The senior citizen told reporters that her family had passed the book from generation to generation

UFA, June 5. /TASS/. A family from Russia’s Bashkortostan Region has presented the local museum of the Interior Ministry with a 1926 Arabic language edition of the Soviet Criminal Code, which they misidentified as the Quran for many years, the ministry’s press service said on Tuesday.

“The museum was presented with the 1926 edition of the criminal Code in the Arabic language. The book’s elderly owner said she had mistaken it for the Quran and put under her child’s head,” the press service said, adding that the woman’s son later served in the police.

The senior citizen told reporters that her family had passed the book from generation to generation.

“My mother said that this was a holy book, which should be wrapped in cloth and placed under a pillow so that children would keep calm and not misbehave,” the elderly lady explained. “Many years later we found out that this is the 1926 edition of the Soviet Criminal Code.”

The museum of the Interior Ministry was opened in Ufa, the capital of Bashkortostan, in 1982.
I am still laughing this news, haha!

Another “Updated” year, 2018

Again traditionally, we give our new year message with a song of Iron Maiden like previous years. I do not write its lyric this year. I can just say that, music and lyrics are very good, as always. 😎

And, I am thinking how the year of 2017 passed. I see that one thing came forward prominently:

Update

I realize that I was plenty updated in 2017!

Life on the planet earth has always kept me energetic. In 2017, I was more energetic because I was constantly updated.

“Updating” is not my statement. This is the new name of the “price increase” to almost every price pulls out of the public’s pocket, from the roads to the bridges toll, from the electricity to the milk or to the tomato (in a very wide range) by the government wing generally used this year. The government’s economy authorities does not say “price increase” anymore; instead of “increased” they use “updated.” The word of “increased” almost will be removed from the literature.

I’ve also had the pleasure of updating myself abundantly!

I didn’t miss the opportunity!

For example, when I learned how to live on with a salary increase of up to maximum 8% per year, I have been updated with pleasing.

While the salary was raised up to maximum 8%, I was happier when hearing the 50% or more updating of electricity bill, food prices, transportation expenses or etc at the same time. (according to consumer associations calculations, for example, 51 Turkish liras are the taxes of 100 Turkish liras electricity bill) Because I had been updated again!

When I was in the update mode, I’ve found myself by thinking on how it would be like to bring Tesla to this time and to make free electricity for the public. Time machine is the only way to bring him to this era! If I would be updated so much, maybe I could invent a time machine!

I thought how I might be more up-to-date, while I am more updated. Because, you are so much updated that you are feeling yourself like brand-new beyond time!

For example, due to even straw was imported from abroad countries (and according to news of November, the prices of straw were raised 100% in 3 months), the price of milk of the cows who ate straw has also “increased”; sorry Updated!

But wait a minute! The cows are also imported from Germany, Austria and etc.

I wonder, do they milk the cowIs on the ships while they came; I do not know. Even thinking about it, has updated me.

When the price of raw milk has updated 20 Turkish kurush (about 7 cents), caused to update milk products such as cheese with 40% plus price at markets, updated me more! For example, right now the news said that the updating champion was butter in 2017; January 2017 1kg butter was 25 Turkish liras–December 2017 1 kg same brand butter is 65 Turkish lira.

I am never mentioning the price of gasoline, as long as I started to use public transport more, I realized that I was not considering gasoline money anymore.

But then when “updated” price comes to public transport, I think, the best is bicycle. If it would not be, we will run.

I do not know how can I be updated while I run, but I am certain to find a way!

Next to all of them, it was the bread that disappointed me! I wanted to be updated with it, but it did not. Even last month, a news has fallen to the newspapers: “230 thousand tons of wheat will be imported” (No, Anatolia is not a “wheat silo” of the region anymore, until ten years ago, it was; like eveything, the wheat comes from abroad.) I was so happy when saw that news! I was waiting a “great” update with the new bread prices! But it has not happened! Authorities reduce the weight of the bread instead of the update! So, a lower weight bread was going to be taken with the same price. It was a complete disappointment for me!

By the way,

I am not a selfish extraterrestrial, so I have not forgotten my earthling friends, while I was constantly updated. Of course they are being updated too. But I thought maybe they did not notice this yet, and I did them a favor.

Every new year eve, I buy books as present. But the book prices have also been updated almost 30% in this year. This year I’ve bought “one” book(novel) for two friends; it was expensive because the book was at the updated price. I divided down the middle of the book in two, copied it’s back and face covers via printer. I wrote “Volume One” on the first part, and “Volume Two” on the other. I glued the covers face to both. I gave the first volume (that is actually the first half of the book) to an earthling friend, and the second volume(rest of the book) to the other. I updated them as well and strengthened their friendship by providing them to exchange books with each other. Haha!

-What are you planning to do next year, Migo? Will you give the pages of the book one by one to the people!

-Hmmm, maybe, why not WD? That’s a good idea.

-It’s not a good idea, Migo! You alien, this is not a good idea! I cannot believe I will spend another year with you, Migo! Damn!

-So, don’t we wish “happy new year” for us?

-Let’s just say that! It would bring end your crap at least! Happy New Year, my beloved readers! Also, you see what I am dealing with!

-Happy new year my earthling friends! We know that we will be updated more in 2018. But even if it would be with the updates, the good part is that we still be all together in peace and good health. 😉

Mutlu Yeni Yıllar! — С новым годом! — Happy New Year!
