This summer some mountains in the Alps sweated so much water that they collapsed. Tailors are now employed to provide cloaks against the heat for mountains that are still standing.

In Belarus before election day Lukashenko warned Putin to not manipulate the free and fair elections. After Lukashenko succeeded with a stunning 84% majority of the vote, his police force isn't loyal to him anymore. Now he demands police forces from Russia to implement the result of the free and fair elections.

He thinks russian police forces are more likely to shoot into crowds of demonstrators. Despite they all are russian people speaking russian language.

This play can work as shown by a schoolboy from Illinois with a gun in Wisconsin.

In NZ people discuss to extradite the only life long prisoner they have to his home country Australia. They haven't yet privatized prisons. The costs!

In Germany people were shocked to hear Italy handles better the pandemic than we do.

Recently Germany tested every tourist coming back at the airport. Today the government has learned from statistics that the most infections happen during the last night party. Therefore most infections didn't test positively the next day on arrival in Germany.

... The virus didn't behave correctly as politicians have thought it would.

I wonder how a summer can get worse: What can do a three degrees more, while right now we have all what was supposed to come decades later? I really wonder, but I'll never will know due to my age.

I don't know how serious these calls are. I could be wrong, but it's politicians on the fringe calling for it with an upcoming election.

FWIW Apparently Australian prisons are much nicer than NZ prisons.

and I remember talk in the past about private prisons, but there's no political will, and no one is calling for them. I personally don't see the benefit?

Hunger for baby blood
250y after the birth of german philosopher Hegel history not spirals upwards anymore but conspiracy theories are popular with exactly the same ideas the folks had some 700 years ago. They had the plague back then.

Please don't laugh:
Americans are unlikely to be able to hold fair elections. And no other country is ready to threaten an invasion in this case.

The UK is threatened with an economic blockade to the EU in 2021 because the most important EU negotiator has not worn a mask against the coronavirus in Ireland.

The turkish TRT world news starts a full blown war propaganda against Armenia despite Erdogan has hot conflicts with
- Russia in Idlib/Syria
- the kurds in northern Syria
- Egypt in Lybia
- Greece in the mediterranian seas about oil

I don't either. As this is my sarkastic thread I was about to add:
"They haven't yet privatized prisons. This a precondition for a growing prison population ..."

Trump speaks a few minutes too long about Biden and looses all what his GOP comrads gained in polls for him the days before.

While a young callboy is telling about his problems with two customers on national news media for 9 minutes, Anderson Cooper looks into the camera like he wants to pretend not to be sexually arroused. By the time of that talk one old man dies with CoVid-19 in a hospital.

Some old attendees of the deathmatch in front of The White House might feel first symptoms of their infection today or tomorrow. Why doesn't Trump call for young supporters when he wants to lecture about U.S. history an hour long? Does he target old men for a special cause?

State propaganda often is enlightening. I sometimes search turkish TRT, chinese CGTN or russian RT on Youtube. Yesterday I found on RT Germany a leninist sermon exactly like the radio waves transmitted these from the eastern part of Germany some 40 years ago, titled: "build soviets!"

Unamed communist opposition group in Germany is reasoning for an intervention of Russia in Belarus. They call it a letter to Belarus people. But it is Putins excuse for the many who like him in the west. Like the 40t who demontrated last Saturday in Berlin. Sorry for german language only.

Since ancient Rome there was no bigger melting pot in Europe than Germany. We just learned it from CoVid-19 infection statistics. Now we impatiently await the Russians again from a failing revolution in Belarus.

Two waves of Russians made Berlin a first class citizen in the league of city centers for culture:
After a failing 1905 revolution jewish intellectuals came and the 1917 Bolshevik coup brought us the rich Russians to Germany.
