It used to be an old salt mine dating all the way back to the 17th century. Before mining stopped back in 1932 Salina Turda excavated over 3 billion tons of salt, and since then the place has been a little bit of everything from a cheese storage facility to a bomb shelter. It was then renovated into an awesome amusement park back in 2009, and has since become a popular tourist attraction. Some of the attractions include an underground theme park, equipped with an amphitheater, Ferris wheel, mini golf course, and a lake complete with rowboats.
A Kennedy launches a campaign to tell us little people to quit eating hamburgers and buying cheap cashmere sweaters Message from the jet-tour princess touting her book in Telluride: Leave that stuff to us rich. Gruel for you, keep the rich stuff exclusively for the rich. It reads like a crie de coeur from the elites, desperate to end the prosperity of Americans and for that matter, much of the world, and restore it all to its rightful place, which is exclusively with the rich. The superrich, after all, have got to be angry at all the encroachments the proles have made on their lifestyle, taking ski vacations as if they were rich people, eating meat every night the way the Vanderbilts used to do, and putting on all those soft Mongolian cheapies to stay warm.
The Tattooed Venus And The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Betty Broadbent was said to have had 465 tattoos, including the largest known at that time, a Madonna and Child on her back. She was also decorated with images of pilot Charles Lindbergh, patriotic flags and emblems including the American eagle.
The Only Equal End A world without truth is a world where nothing is false. This is the ultimate equality, where everything is opinion and all opinion is equally worthless. While the Left may seem irrational, they are acting on that old Enlightenment impulse to achieve universal equality. If we cannot be equal in the utopian paradise of our own making, we can be equal in the utter and complete destruction of society. After all, the one place where all men are equal is in the cemetery.
Losing the ‘Narrative’ Narrative? So, the New York Times did not give a rats’ rear end about 1619, and the way African slavery became intertwined with American history, until their “Russia, Russia, Russia” lie was fully exposed and politically negated. They were now staring into the abyss of their fellow conspirators being exposed, and perhaps even criminally charged before the 2020 election.
What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa: Trump Is Right All the little stores in Senegal were owned by Mauritanians. If a Senegalese wanted to run a little store, he’d go to another country. The reason? Your friends and relatives would ask you for stuff for free, and you would have to say yes. End of your business. You are not allowed to be a selfish individual and say no to relatives. The result: Everyone has nothing. Americans think it is a universal human instinct to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It’s not. It seems natural to us because we live in a Bible-based Judeo-Christian culture.
We think the Protestant work ethic is universal. It’s not. My town was full of young men doing nothing. They were waiting for a government job. There was no private enterprise. Private business was not illegal, just impossible, given the nightmare of a third-world bureaucratic kleptocracy. It is also incompatible with Senegalese insistence on taking care of relatives.
The New Woke Marxism: Penicillin-Resistant Ideology The Big Con is on. Once again magical Marxists are out in force. They make almost believable arguments based on almost-believable facts. The young, the unsuspecting, these are the targets. Still, to hold onto their naive prey the Marxists need more than just a good story. They must confuse and disrupt all opposition. Having sowed the seeds of dissension and distrust on the large economic issues they can proceed to create paranoia in the primary social structures that sustain life. Sexual schizophrenia becomes a cause celeb; abortion rights for transgender men becomes an important policy position of the major leftward party. That working-class income has been rising rapidly under conservative leadership must be trivialized.
