Week in Picture, German Election Edition

The Germans vote today, so we’ll see if they’ve had enough of the Reichskanzler, who has been in office longer than anybody since you know who. The media says yes, but if you haven’t noticed they’ve occasionally been wrong,  but were right in France, so we’ll see.

mm

This could be true in Germany, too

Headline of the week. Ach, if only it were so!

Mostly from Bookworm and PowerLine.

Have a good week. And remember

    “Headline of the week. Ach, if only it were so!” Well, I (we?) know for a fact it does seem to work that way,… ’til morning comes! 🙂

    The Left is destroying American universities and I fear British ones won’t be far behind at this rate. I’m ashamed.

      Starting to see indications that have overstepped here although not obvious yet and it remains worrisome. Britain appears almost worse at this juncture. The two main d rivers of innovation off the table is unpalatable, to say the least, the rest are too busy saluting.

        This extremism is incredibly unpalatable. It is becoming increasingly frustrating to begin sentences with disclaimers to protect ourselves from ludicrous charges of “hate” by leftists.

          I know, well, that’s not so, but I can imagine. I think what must happen is that enough refuse, although that is also risky, at least professionally, so far. But in a sense, it;s politics, and as Chalcedon has said so often, that is downstream from culture. But we’d best be about changing that soon, because there is a tipping point somewhere.

          Agreed – we all have t start somewhere. In the old days, when everyone went to church, pastors would have mentioned self-discipline and related virtues, but now we need to make a concerted effort to talk about these things constructively in mixed company, which, as you say, is risky.

          I wonder if a good share of the problem, that we’re speaking of, and the churches as well, isn’t because pastors stopped speaking of ‘self-discipline and related virtues’. We do, but I’m not sure that the left is listening, seems to me, they are too busy panicking. I have to admit being heartened by the German election, looks like they are starting to pay attention. Of course, it also pleases me to see the discomfiture of the British and American media, who have decidedly chosen their side, and will likely be destroyed by doing so. I was watching Sky News, yesterday, what the missed on the Wembley story is that NFL viewership is down about 25 % (traditionally it’s about as popular as Premier League there). I expect ticket sales to start dropping as well. Whoops! Well, they angered me, when they do it here, it just strikes me as stupid, but overseas it reflects poorly on the country, or maybe I’m just getting even more curmudgeonly, and not in a lovable manner. 🙂

          At the risk of getting into trouble, I think the left should stop complaining about President Trump’s comments over players who won’t rise for the national anthem. They should count themselves lucky they weren’t trying that in McCarthy’s day. They would have been labelled as “commies” and “traitors”.

          And truly they would have deserved it. Although I’m no believer in the blacklist that went along with it, although we are seeing them again today, just the other way around. Wrong then, wrong now.

          On a personal note, Nicholas, my post last Saturday “Bare Ruined Choirs” speaks between the lines about why I’m increasingly not contributing much to AATW, It’s hard to maintain interest when the leadership bails, isn’t it? And yet, I miss it, but it’s not my blog to save, although I would be pleased to help. Been a bad year for me, and I don’t see it getting better. Sadly, both personally, and for my faith. Much to mourn, I’m afraid.

          I will have a read of that post now. I have had my own issues, I must confess, and from Wednesday to next July, I expect to be very busy with my law conversion course.

          Do. I don’t know, maybe the Preacher was right, “a time to be born and a time to die, etc”.

          But I miss Jessica and C far more than is healthy for me, but that what getting old is, in some sense. And there are not many I can talk about it with, for that matter.

          I miss them both too, and I found your post very moving. I’m a member of The Naked Bible Facebook group, which I have found to be engaging. Not AATW, but you may find it a good place for online fellowship.

          I’ll take a look, but I’m not much of a fan of Facebook, mostly a waste of time. Not that I mean that group is, of course.

          I’m glad you did, it’s the most I’ve said, and likely all I ever will. You (and the others) are always welcome here as well.
