Hi zosimov,

For now my country (France) can very well be described as a Zionist-owned, mercantile and imperialist State worshiping the USA (atlanticism) that is slowly but surely being turned into a dictature. French culture and history are being trampled on everyday by stateless clowns who only love the €€€ and who give us political puppets to elect. What's more, the once-united national community is being ethnically and socially split up through massive immigration, so there are now communities that more or less tolerate each other (a bit like in the US) because everything has been done not to assimilate them, and to make them hate each other. The strategy of tension is working well, so well that we're very likely to have a civil war in a few years if nothing changes... Divide and conquer!

But hey it's not that bad down there, it's not (yet) like Afghanistan, it's safe, we have wonderful food and a lot of beautiful places to visit, so feel free to come, and don't pay attention to my dumb overproud fellow citizens who tend to treat tourists like dogs...

TrueBrit, not taking anything away from the murder of Jo Cox, however, your statement above makes me shake my head in disbelief, both yourself and myself have been in court accused of certain (different) things, we both know how the system works in the UK, you and me both "know" we were innocent of charges put against us, but both of us were convicted.

For you to believe and even quote from the article in The Guardian is astounding ... the guy visited websites sure, but to label him Far Right is ludicrous, unless you knew him personally.

Don't believe everything you read, i'm just glad you ain't on his Jury with your pre-determined ideas

Just Saying

The same thing that just happened in the US and the UK is finding a way to express itself in many other countries. Ordinary hard working people are no longer fooled by traitor politicians saying open border globalism is good for everyone. People that actually matter have worked out that the only ones who benefit from the globalist agenda are the multinationals and their puppet politicians that only care about protecting their sinecures.

The era of ideologies is over and now honest people will start caring about what actually works for those that create wealth and not just the debt slavery that is perpetuated through Fractional Reserve Banking. I will stake on a massive change being expressed in the next round of European elections. We have just seen in the US elections that controlling a biased media no longer cuts the mustard. Big change is in the air, bet on it!

I cannot comment too much as recently decided to ignore politics from now on as it is simply absurd.


Im kinda doing the same thing. But still pointing out how stupid the behavior of the political types is.

If this is what civilization has to offer, im realy not so sure being hunter gatherer isn't better.

Your state sounda like its near a major metropolis center as well. I live about an hour and a half from our major city. Move to the city and its direct suburbs the average housing cost starts at 1,000,000 it's actually s bit disgusting because if you are looking for a good paying job or more work thats where you have to go. Sickening. Im sorry to hear you suffer from similar struggles where you live.

I agree, it's probably the smartest thing my country is trying to do right now. Marijuana has gotte n 2 cousins and an uncle away from opiate based drugs to treat their chronic pain. They all work and are actually more active now than when they were on their opiate based pain management.

The average home cost for my province is 688,181 average in vancouver 1,513,800 .. min wage 10.85 i live a ways from the city, been working with my company about 4 years. I make 20.85 an hr my rent is 1200 a month, my auto insurance costs $240 a month. Cell bill $100 A month fuel 50 a week... makes saving 20 percent on a 450,000 home feel impossible.. it's probably the number one concern of my age group in my province.

Snap shot of my areas issues. I have a reasonable job, 30 minute commute, and cant afford to buy a home and i cant afford to move closer to the city as the rent gets frightening. Im hopeful though and determined as i feel many in my age group are.

Hello to all who are lucky enough not to be caught up in the trainwreck that has taken over the site for the last several months. I've travelled to many countries and taught students from many others and would love to hear from you a little about the state of affairs in your country (things the news wouldn't likely cover). How would you consider your political/social/cultural environment to be right about now? What are you most excited about? Any fears/hopes for the future of your country? Any new artistic/scientific/cultural innovations?

So what's good International ATS? I'm eager to find out what's happening in your niche.

Can't wait to hear from you!


Greetings from Australia/New Zealand.

Things here are as always, our two party preferred system is failing, and we have no leader / party that has a vision past the next election, the people "protested" by causing our senate to be feral. Note - this is the federal government.

Outside of that it's pretty peachy, things are still working, the general populace is peaceful, the state governments are working really well for their respective states.

The weather is a bit sucky though :/.

Dear friends,

I really appreciate your taking the time out to share the happenings in your part of the world!

It has been great hearing from all of you. I can see that so many of us face the same struggles and lead similar day-to-day lives.

Will respond to your individual posts once I get off work and tend to my family.

Wishing you all the best, thanks for the best reading I've had in awhile!

-zos

England are beating Spain 2-0 , that's good.
Apart from that I feel I've slipped back to the 80s without the benefit of youth , we've got a female led Tory government ,America has a celebrity for President and we live under the threat of Mutually Assured Destruction.
The weather's crap . Christmas has started mid November and Europe hates us.

Other than that everything is just fine.

Canada just signed a massive trade agreement with the EU on October 30th (CETA).

It's the largest trade agreement we've signed since NAFTA in the 90's, so this one is a big deal.

I'm not so sure I'm keen on the agreement because of the Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) aspect of it... the thing smells too much like the TPP/TTIP proposed agreements which I am vehemently against.

I'm not in favour of corporations having any kind of say over sovereign nations on how business disputes are handled.

I guess time will tell whether or not this agreement is for the betterment of all of our countries involved or whether it turns out to be a nightmare like NAFTA.


Next up:

Hashing out trade agreements with the UK once they've competely stepped away from the EU.


Hey there,

So I'm woefully ignorant when it comes to trade. What does stand out here is the upcoming agreement with the UK. I am very much rooting for them to recover economically from their decision to leave the UN, and think it's great that Canada is working out an agreement that would allow UK its economic sovereignty.

Interesting, thanks

First off, I have a huge soft spot for France. My little bro lived in Saint Lo for over a year, playing semi-pro (small monthly salary and living expenses paid) baseball and he loved his time there.

My heart broke upon hearing about the attacks, and the fallout (division, hatred, fear) is just as awful.

You're right that the divide and conquer strategy is being employed here as well. It seems to be quite efficient and effective. It's strange to know that we are so easily manipulated.

Hoping the best for your beautiful country. And yes, if I can get some money together (not likely anytime soon)
I would love to visit, thanks for the invite. (btw- got some ill treatment in Florence Italy also Fauske Norway for being a tourist, but also was treated poorly here in the US in Telluride, Colorado.. guess some individuals don't look kindly upon outsiders)

I feel a whole lot better for it and no joke.

I am aware that a lady called Teresa thinks she is in control of my life and that very soon an oversized umpalumpa will be under the delusion that he has the right to tell my American brethren what they can or cannot do but other than that I simply do not care. I refuse to accept there rule.

I live in a little house in a little villiage on a little island on a little rock in a little solar system in a little galaxy...

I am building a workshop and feeding the kids, I have a little vegatable plot on the go and in the spring will be once again getting some chickens and maybe a few ducks.

Those guys can do what they like and think whatever they want for all I care.

It is his acts by which he ought be known.

Given that there are images of him wearing far right group t-shirts, and given that he murdered a woman politician while muttering about Britain First and other such tosh, I would be quite shocked if it turned out that he was a globalist, or a socialist.
