RE: faith in god

Question is: Is there a god or is it a creation of the human mind? The fact that we became aware of our existence made us also aware of the limits of our life! Death became a crucial item in our way of life. Mankind realised how restricted and inferior he is compared with the other natural beings. So he needed somehing that could stand above it and control all threats. So the concept of a god was born!!
Than we began to use this godness (= religion) to justify his evil deeds like racism, discrimination of other cultures, sick and poor people, extiction of life, etc.....
I still remember the words of Pres. Bush W. junior when his troops were send for a pre-emptive strike "May god be with you", the same did the crusaders, the colonisators. they used religion to justify their genocides!
That is why Lenin once said" religion is as opium for the people". We use god or our religion for all kid of acts we otherwise could not live with it. The unbearable facts of being!!

hello , i have been 25 years working with nurses. Being their collegue. I can assure you they are just the same as any other women. With their pro's and contra's. Btw. times are changing and so is the profession and ....its professionals. Nursing has become a business as all other professions. The mythe that nurses are lovlely, caring and..... sexie creatures (biggest misunderstanding!!) is already long past time.They are human beings as all the others, no more no less.

RE: Trolls and Trolling.............

Sorry to hear that.
I deleted almost all my social media accounts.Reason for it is that those organisations have nothing to with socializing people. Their only goal is to realise the American dream asap by advertisment credits and pointed out marketing strategies. They use the information gathered from the users who think it is all fun and sell this megadata to companies who develop personal marketing with it! This means lesser costs and bigger benefits for them, its a win-win situation. Datingsites do the same. The useraccounts are treated as live stock. FB has been convicted of violating the privacy rules several times but at the end Stevie Z is a billionair and doesn't care about the rest.
Today more and more people begin to realise this situation and brake up with the social media. Schools in Europe begin to teach media awareness to protect the children against the dangers of the web especially the social media. There is still hope.!! Maybe next time Stevie Z. might go for president of the US wink

RE: Exchange French language for English

I speak multiple languages and can assure you that French, related to the Latin linguistics differs very much from English which is associated with the Germanic linguistic group. To master it perfectly it takes at least a few years. But you can always go for a crash course French. On the other hand a good recipe for learning it is to get in contact with the locals. This is the fastest way learning how to speak French. Do not be shy the people don't bite and the same time you learn about the local habits. By reading their journals you can learn about the written language. And last but not least...you may always sent me letters to learn more about French. Further information you can find on my CSi profile. wave

UK and Brexit

It seems Brexit is to become a doom scenario for the UK. I wonder how long the UK will be able to withstand it and will remain a UK? More and more resistance against the Brexit is growing. Mostly between the young people.Theresa May even lost het popularity in her own party!! Also knowing that she was opposed against a Brexit. Why did she accepted the job of prime minister as nobody today wants it ?? doh

@ Jefke59 I must admit what you are saying especially about the NHS. But we must be aware our NHS isn't facing the same problems! I worked 25 years in it was fired at 55 years old. Reason? To high salary costs!
Nurses from southern and Eastern Europe are imported as they are young, less critical and.....cheaper!!!
A friend of me, Director nursing in a regional hospital confirmed it. Health care has become a booming business and the main goal of the investors is to obtian as much profits as possible. One of the tricks is to lower the salaries and company taxes! It sounded familiar in my ears! (cynism)

Belgium is out of control

Another hot item on the tv news.

The terrorist Salah Abdesalem, involved in the jihad assault in Paris (2/2016) and in a gunfight with the police (2 victims) in 3/2016 in Brussels is transported every day of his trial under sever police escort from his prison at Vendin-le-Veil (France) to the courthouse in Brussels (=150 km x2).
The courthouse is completely surrounded by 200 police officers, a helicopter, watertank and armored vehicules, Frisian riders, fences and concrete blocs with steel. Costs?? dunno

And the accused is moking with the whole system! He denies the whole system as only Allah can judge him. He even refused to stand up when the judge was appealing him and was not forced to do it!! “I am too tired” was his excuse! Excuse granted!! Incredible!! doh

His attorney requested acquittal on account of a procedural error !!
A letter to the court was written in another language then French one (Dutch?).
As the proceedings shall be conducted in the French language it should have been written in Frech!
But there are 3 official languages recognised in Belgium! professor

When the minister of justice replied on this request as a slap in the face of society he was rightly pointed out by the European commision and the the federal Arbitration court that it was NOT of his business to act that way, as Justice, Government and Parliament are the 3 independent cornerstones of our democratic society and must be able to act separately !!!

The attorney and his family were threatened with death. What else did you expected???
Let ‘s hope the judge will use common sense in his judgement and not just the words of the law. Or shouldn't we have to treat those criminals the same way as they do with their prisoners and others??

It is quiet obvious that the days of the imperailism of the USA is coming to its end. The new star on the horizon is China. After the UK got a world dominance in the 19 century, After WWI it changed and the US began to take it over, especially after WWII; The US saw Europe as a market for their economy. But times are changing and today after all those crises Europe starts to realise it has to stand on its own and changes its economics to Asia and South America.

UK and Brexit

Belgium as any other Western country is taken hostage by it values and its rules that are based on, the liberal idea's of the Enlightening period. They all have become so soft they did not see the problems of immigration till it was too late! Thanks to our employers and politicians more than once a controlled immigration of cheap labour forces was organised. No problems till last year Germany and Sweden did send special trained people to Turkey and other Middle East countries to recruit young labourforces. The rest is history. And what has this all to do with the Brexit issue?? The UK wanted a Brexit because of LEGAL (most European) labourers that took over the jobs of the UK people.As Boris Johnson admits today this was not the real reason for the Brexit at all. But "The UK doesn't want to give up its independancy to the EU" he stated.

UK and Brexit

As it seems the situation today I do not believe other countries will leave the EU. They are more decided than ever. Nevertheless there are still some problems to solve , look at the evolution in Poland. But that is another issue. The last selections in the UK proved the majority of the people felt to be cheated. Prime minister May and the conservative party lost their power completely. The whole parliament and government is a mess. Where are the big pro-leave instigators as Mr. Farrage and Boris Johson now?? The first disappeared and the other was forced by Theresia May to become minister of foreign affairs. The value of the pound is low. Could be interesting for investments but the investors wait for the Brexit negogiations. And where to export their products if they have to pay import taxes? The profits will disappear. Big financial groups are leaving London for Frankfurt and Paris. Other members of the UK (Scotland, North Ireland) are considering the possiblity of a referendum about their membership of the UK. Where will it leads to?? About the impact on tourism. Tourism heals itself by time. The sector is more afraid of the impact of terrorism than of the absence of the English tourists. I heard on the news that people in countries as Spain, Greece e.o. complain about the anually overcrowding of destructive young English people . At this moment it seems The UK is the biggest loser.

RE: TRUMP COULD BE THE BEST PRESIDENT OF AMERICA

Or he is a blessing for USA or not I don't mind. Now the American system just shows how it always has been !
I made an overview of the presidential elections!! My goodness what an unbelieveable TV show was this! And I blame not only D. Trump for his behavior as he has always been himself. But the way the American people tolerated his election campaign was much worser than the president himself. It is an alerting sign there is something really going wrong with the USA as such man can become President. First of all it is the system that sucks, A system founded in 1738 and never adapted ever since! This is the same as the koran of the Muslims of whom we hate so much their Jihadis! Secondary all the improvements the US is experiencing now are the result of former governments e;g. the improvement of jobs! Trump is announcing so proudly, they are alredy improving continiously since 2009!! . What has he already achieved of his own promises?? Obamacare :his proposals three times rejected!! The wall for Mexico, not a brick has been build!, Lowering the taxes, only for the bussinescompanies not for the people, how is he going to decrease the national debt which is billions of dollars?
He is a great entertainer that can make the people to sell his glamorous airbubbles, nothing more.
What Is worst of it is that this phenomena is not limited to the USA alone. Everywhere in the world we see such populists taking over the power and acting as dictators. (f.i. his statement during the elections " I know the American system best and ONLY ME can change it !!" OMG what an arrogance)

RE: Anti Trump propaganda

I am not an anti Trump propagandist! I just wanna say we are a a turning point in politics those days. In the 19th century it was the UK that ruled the world by its colonisation policy. In the 20th century is became the US with their military and economical power and their imperialism. After the communism they thought their idea's might conquer the world. But times are changed other nations begin now to claim their part of the power. China, Russia, India, EU etc.... they are not so happy that the financial world is ruled by the dollar specially not after the last monetary crisis. The times of the capitalistic system are ending slowly but certainly. Democracy and capitalism are one. There is no better political system that supports capitalism. And I am convinced that the democracy in the US is limited. Limited by the power of money, as it is also in other nations!!,The democratic system in the US founded in 1738 has not changed a letter since then!! Is this innovation? The USA a country of ultimate freedom? I depends on what definition you give on freedom!! But freedom for the one means restrictions for the other, otherwise the one cannot be entirely free. Ask the native indians about it,
As the economies in the world are changing for different reasons ( climate change, depletion of raw materials by overexpoiting, waste problems,growing populations,etc,,,...) we must realise things are changing. What is happening in the USA nowadays is that this selfconfident nations is in the ban of fear and anarchy. It has its impact on the people and their leaders! That is what made D.Trump so popular! As a populist he knew how to manipulate the people and ....he won! Is he a democrat NO WAY, Is he a republican NO WAY either, as he took them hostage when stated that if they would not appoint him as candidate for the elections he would start his own party!! And he was right!! It sounded horrifying for the republicans that a single man could bring their power down. So they did it. Hoping to get some things of their election program realised! Trump represents the rebellion of the people. Being smart as he is he will only serve the clan he represents: the mighty businessmen and no one else. Pity for the rest of the people.

One in seven Syria warriors who have returned to our country, gets again unemployment benefits, says the journal Time. It involves 16 of the 100 fighters who have returned in recent months to our country. In addition, several fighters unjustly received support of CPA’s,(= a local welfare organisation) said extreme nationalist PM Kristien Van Vaerenbergh.

According to the NEO (National Employment Office) the 16 Syria warriors fulfill all legal requirements. "They're not in prison, they have inscribed in their community, they are available for work and answer calls from the employment services. While we obtain all possible information on the anti-terror cell OCAD, the prosecutor's office and the prison system" says Wouter Langeraert from the NEO.

He points out that everything is properly implemented, but the NEO often "does not get more data than the names." "We must usually do it with "most probable " resdence times of and “they were in Syria."

But just in Flemish Brabant and Brussels were dozens Syria warriors got,rightful benefits during the recent years for at least 123 898 euro . According to figures the N-VA MP Kirstien Van Vaerenbergh requested at Justice Minister Koen Geens (Christen Democrats).

RE: The people has spoken, Trump our new Leader, Part 2

First I wana say is that Donald Trump won the elections because of the most undemocratic system I know. It was founded in 1738 by the US elite in order to prevent the power of common people to become to strong.It has never been adapted since. Donald Trump even critised it in 2012 during the elections now het doesn't say a word of changing it. But besides that he is elected and will become the president of the USA!! We will evaluate him and deal with him in 2020 and see how he has executed his big changes he shouted several times during his election time. As it seems to be at the moment I have my doubts. But let us give him the benefit of the doubt.
Why my comment? I have seen the same scenario happening in other countires and I know it did not work out as promised on the contrary. Votes of malcontent voters are never interesting to deal with in politics unless you want the power but after that....????

It is not something to be surprised of as it is a practice (and scandal to me) as long as humanity exists.


It is know in the natural world that the weaker and vulnerable groups are always the victimes of the stronger and more dominant ones. s*xual abuse is as old as we are. It are just the organisations it is manifestated in, that allows us to conduct this abberant behavior. Whether it is the religion, the culture or whatever.....
If this organisations allow it or not, humans are still able to do it because s*xual behavior is a basic instinct.
It must be controlled but how?? As humans are free to make choices and we are toppredators it is likely we want to satisfy our s*xual lusts whether it is accepted or not,despite everything others say about it.
So as religion, politics and cultures may have a big influence on it they will never be able to solve it unless the pedopiles themselves will ask for help!!
