  • Fukushima

    Strange that the 2020 Olympics were cancelled because of the flu but were actually awarded to Tokyo after the fukushima disaster? So, no problem with Ceasium 136 but a flu that even a government health site  says is not a High Consequence Infections disease(HCID), shuts down the whole country?

    Have a look at the screenshots below. I sure did not read or hear this from the hype machine :

    hcid

     

    HCID Diseases include Ebola, Sars and a few other scary viruses but not COVID 19. The websites says HCID is defined as follows :

    classification

     

    Why are you all so bloody sure you are not being hoodwinked by the lying hyped up messengers who have a serious history of lying in the past? If they were truly interested in delivering news about this bollox, wouldn’t you have read about this? It was only issued Mar 19 2020 – so where is the Hype? MAybe it’s time to question what the fuck is going on.

  • The Pub is closed – Martial Law in place and my niece sold her first painting

    emilypainting

    My niece sold her first painting. Well done Emily – hope you doN’t mind me putting it up. Now on to the shitty part of this post

    Yep, we are under martial law and my pub is closed. I get it, the media is propagandizing like it is the end of the world and western populations live lives where any risk is unacceptable so we have given up every single liberty previous generations fought wars to get us. All I can wonder – doesn’t this seem like how America acted in Vietnam- Destroy the village to save it? How did that work out for everyone.

    Why is it when people are afraid, they accept authoritarianism? Why do people who constantly spew about how wonderful western democracy is, how civilized the west is, how free it is suddenly start begging to have all liberties removed? When China locked down Wuhan and Hubei provinces, the media dramatically pointed out the dangers to the chinese population from this kind of control and tracking. Now these same media hucksters are proscribing the same thing for our countries? Surely these liberties are here for when we are in troubled times? Otherwise, it would seem these liberties are all a chimera and democracy and freedom is only window dressing and we all live in authoritarian countries with governments no different from China’s. After 9/11 you could not take a book out of a library without the book’s title and your name being put into some kind of secutity database. No flight lists stopped people from travelling. We weren’t allowed to bring a bottle of water on a plane. Of course these were temporary measures…still applicable 19 years later.

    Was a lockdown inevitable? In January we were all told not to worry, COVID 19 was only in china?`Is that why there was no preparation in our countries? Why wasn’t there? Did we have to shut down our economy and endanger our future economic security because our establishment is incompetent at best and at worst just evil corrupt scumbags?We had plenty of warning this was a super contagious virus but all of countries did nothing to anticipate it spreading? These are the same incompetents/Scum bags we are all now relying on to be honest and to put people first after the crisis is over?

    Everyone thinks that this pause to the economy will not hurt, that we will all get bailed out. As someone who has been briefed on loans, grants and salaries for my employees, we are all going to be hurt by this. Right now. governments and media will say anything to get you to go home – but when it comes time to collect, you can bet there will be a lot of disappointed people. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO BAIL EVERYONE OUT. Already, companies like Boeing and Deutsche Bank are making their plans to PROFIT from this crisis – not just survive like the rest of us. If big companies are expecting to profit from bailouts, how much do you expect to be left for small businesses, freelancers and employees? What the hell does COVID-19 have to do with the position Boeing or Deutsche bank are in anyway? Absolutely nothing but there they are first in line with their hat out.

    Anyway, it is all a done deed now -i am living under martial law in Germany and hope it will end some time.  i hope all the guests of the four corners at least come out of this with their sanity, a semblance of economic health, and of course in good physical health. See you all for a pint if and when we get to the other side of this.

     

     


  • Condolences book

    The funeral has not been scheduled yet but I understand that the family wants some time. As I understand it, it should be towards the end of March. In the meantime, if you are in the pub, please sign the condolence book and if you can afford a few schekels, please ask the bar person and they will assist.


  • RIP Damo…

    Capture

     

    My friend Damon Bergamini died last week in London. I have been struggling to come to terms with how someone so alive and so young at heart is no longer with us. I still cannot fathom how this happened and why he is still not here. He had some health issues but to be dead….I don’t get it. I keep expecting him to come swinging in through the door and belt out his famous HALLO but all there is is a void. I miss you Damo.

    Damo was a natural entertainer and he kept my pub in stitches every time he came in. Seriously, I have never met such a showman. Over the last couple of years, he was actually performing on stage and had become one of the stars of fest (the Frankfurt English Speaking Theatre). His last perfomance in Charlie’s Aunt was his best. Rare have I seen a theatre laugh so much as Damo stole the show and really showed how talented a man he was.

    He will me missed by many. Details of the funeral service have not been released but I will let you know via this site as soon as I have news

    People have been asking if there will be a service or benefit in the pub. We raised a glass (several actually) to our friend last Thursday when we received the news from London. Some of us spoke about it last night and we decided it is enough. We don’t want to celebrate his death and I certainly don’t want to profit from it by having some type of benefit in the pub. I know many of you would like something here in frankfurt but I am going to bow out. Damo is dead and that sucks horribly so I do not feel like any good cheer.

    We are taking any donations though for Damo’s mother Carol to help assist with the costs of the funeral and moving his belongings from Frankfurt to London. If you would like to donate please see me in the pub. 

    Rest In Peace Damo.

     


  • No Cards or Credit

    More and more guests have been asking if they can pay their bill using plastic. It may seem luddite, even 20th century but cash is still king in this great land and I can promise all our guests – what goes on in 4C stays in 4C – no records, no debt, no evidence of your evening with us. Pfffft, up in smoke….So, please realize when you join us at the cosmos’ greatest little pub that we only take cash as payment.
