Remember this guy. Weirdo? Pedophile? Who know but he certainly was a mask wearer. Anyway, i think it must be Michael Jackson day in Frankfurt….all sorts of weird looking creatures in masks roaming around the city. Watch out children.
So despite any evidence bars and restaurants have anything to do with all the false positive tests, with the spread of the flu (oh sorry the flu is dead, long live the flu) that stupid cow in Berlin is recommending that all bars and restaurants should close. The lives of Gastronomy workers DO NOT MATTER. As usual, the people at the lower end of the economic ladder will pay the price. Hopefully the cream puffs and main stream media parrots that have driven this pussy panic are next. A pox on all of you…I hope you all get Ricketts from staying inside quivering about a flu ( sorry the flu is dead, long live the flu) that Donald Trump rec0vered from in 4 days. I guess the old Donald is super human or something. I mean really… are you all scared of a flu (sorry the flu is dead, long live the flu) that Donald Trump got over in four days? Don’t you believe you have the physical fortitude to survive a flu that put a 74 year old orange man into bed for only 4 days before he recovered?
So, a once thriving business is almost done and 4 people will be made unemployed but that is fine…the creampuffs will be safe in their homes.
Everyone has experts. these are mine :
I signed the petition. I rarely offer my information but this overrides my instinct for privacy.
Sign it if you have had enough of this bollox. Maybe, but probably unlikely, it will help.
So the city of Frankfurt has imposed new restrictions on bars and restaurants. I guess the hospitals must be under pressure because of all the new cases and ICU units completely full….except they are not :
From today’s Frankfurter Rundshau :
Wow – 7 patients in ICU in all of Frankfurt. Aren’t we trying to flatten the curve anymore? Surely with 7 people in ICU the health care authorities are not overwhelmed? Or has that narrative been chucked into the dustbin for some other ridiculous and unprovable metric? If not, why do bars and restaurants have to close at 10PM? How does 7 Patients in ICU represent an emergency?
I am thoroughly sick of this nonsense. The media only speaks of cases now, that is positive tests with a test that has been proven to be unreliable…How many times have you heard the word false positive? What is a false positive? Just a nice way to say the TEST DOES NOT WORK RELIABLY. Why doesn’t the media say how many of those cases ended up with someone being sick or someone being checked into hospital? It is simple – it does not fit the fear narrative that propagandists have been selling
Anyway, I have no intention of letting the assholes, snowflakes and Hypochondriacs that drive this fear mongering close my bar early. Why don’t you all just stay home and pretend you are doing it to save others rather than your own cowardly asses. If you are scared, then stay the fuck home and leave the rest of us in peace.
Who would have thought a mass shooting would happen here. Beautiful Portapique Nova Scotia. I have spent many summer days in Portapique and it is no place for this kind of horror.
Makes my problems seem small. Speaking of which, I think we will have pub open as regular on May 3. Maybe we will open for takeaway and aimless drinking while loitering next week – still to decide.
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 Diseases include Ebola, Sars and a few other scary viruses but not COVID 19. The websites says HCID is defined as follows :
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.
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.
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.
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.
The pub will be closed 24-25 December. It opens again 1530 on 26 December.
