If you live in Lamont County, or close to it, and you need your roof fixed, consider Best West Roofing (@ bestwestroofing.com ). I spoke to Dean Stokes about having our roof done, on Friday, June 12th. He and his crew showed up the following Monday. They were done with replacing the shingles on our roof a day later, in the afternoon.
Everything was cleaned up, and not a trace of them having done any work was left, other than our roof having new shingles.
Today I came across a report of a Chinese woman, an aunt who was baby-sitting her three-year-old nephew while his mom went to visit the neighbours. She punished the little boy for interrupting her while she was using the bathroom. Apparently, the aunt had not been doing anything special there, in the bathroom, nothing other than that she was texting her boyfriend. Nevertheless, she cut off the boy’s penis to punish him for interrupting.
The poor little boy never had a chance to learn a lesson that other boys learn a bit later. I was six when I learned a lesson I will never forget: Offences by males against females will be met and treated with disproportionately excessive punishment. It happened like this:
In about the summer of 1943, when the bombing attacks on the German cities had begun in earnest, I was shipped to Bad Kissingen, to a more rural environment than that offered by my hometown, Duesseldorf, and a less-likely target of bombing raids.
Technically I was still in Grade I, but the class that I was made to join was a Grade II class, because of a half-year difference in the beginning of the school year in the Rhineland from that in Hesse.
One of our teachers took us on a nature walk. We were a co-ed class. The girls had the full attention of our female teacher (male teachers were at war), while we boys were largely left to explore nature on our own, which my buddy and I put to good use. We discovered that cockleburs make beautiful missiles that stick to sweaters and hair.
It was soon determined who the culprits were who had caused the commotion that resulted when some of the girls discovered the cockleburs that stuck to them and were not all that easily removed. Up to that time we had great fun, but that changed in very short order.
The teacher had decided to teach us the lesson that we needed to learn to cure us from the fun we had. She told a few of the largest and strongest girls in our group to get a few willow twigs, to strip them of leaves, get a hold of us and give us a whipping, primarily on the backs of our hands. That most definitely caused the worst pain I had ever experienced in my short life.
The lesson had the desired effect, and the welts I had for a few days on the backs of my hands and neck until they healed helped to drive the lesson home. I never forgot, obviously.
Perhaps that encouraged me not to explore the theoretical possibilities of cockleburs in supplying the principle that makes it possible to employ Velcro to replace zippers, but fortunately George de Mestral did, in using.his ingeniousness to produce another one of the many inventions that were produced by men over the ages to make the pleasures of civilization ever more pleasurable.
It was not the only time I got taught the same lesson. I was taught similar lessons over and over, time and again, most of the time by my mother when I was younger, but even now, being 79 and going on 80, time and again women still teach me the same lesson. It’s not because I am stubborn or not a good learner. The slightest disagreement with many women triggers responses by them (or their supporters) that will make you believe they have to engage in an all-out fight for their lives. It doesn’t even matter whether they are right or not.
Think about it, if you are a man. The same thing is happening to you. Let’s hope that there is truly eternal peace after we die, but I suspect not. And just to be sure, always keep in mind that even little boys have their penises cut off, and that the same fate has befallen many grown men, not in just isolated cases. Of course, there is only minimal punishment for women who transgress in such a manner, if there is any punishment for them at all.
The Chinese aunt who cut her nephew’s penis off because he annoyed her will be facing five years incarceration, they say. Don’t be surprised that what she will sentenced to will be much less than that, and that what she will actually be serving will be none to very little of what she will be sentenced to. Women can commit such cruel crimes with impunity.

It follows that the policies of promoting abortion and the curtailing of funding of energy- generating capacity and industrial development in the poorest nations of Africa, which nations presently bear the brunt of attention of organization (e. g.: the UN, the World Bank and the IMF) promoting such policies, are an inhumane failure.
Raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour is an idea that is a main-topic of discussion in the news right now. Here in Alberta, where we have just been blessed by the voters with a socialist government, the leader of the NDP, Rachel Notley, picking up on popular sentiments, announced that the NDP will work to bring about and implement a $15-an-hour minimum wage. We made some experiences with minimum wages that I will describe here.
My wife and I farmed not too far from where we now live. Our main crop was hay, most of which we fed to the sheep we raised. The growing season is short and the harvesting season is very short, while we have to be ready to feed animals for about 210 or more days of the year.
We had a bale wagon that had to be loaded by hand but could be unloaded with hydraulics. We needed help with loading the wagon, for about 10 minutes of work out of 45 minutes of picking up bales and unloading them. For that I tried to get some local kids to help. At a bit more than the minimum wage, with wages beginning when I picked up the helpers and until I dropped them of off at home again, I thought, it should not be too difficult to find help. But I was wrong.
Hay needs to be picked up and put into stacks as soon as it has been baled, or else bales that are worth thousands of dollars can be lost in just one rainfall. My way out of the dilemma was to find a used bale wagon with a mechanized bale pick-up. That solved the problem for me. That bale wagon paid for itself within a couple of years, by preventing me from having to pay wages to helpers that it took me a lot of effort to find, pick up, feed, and bring back home. I would have rather done the work with people than with a machine, but I had no choice. The machine never told me that it didn’t want to come when I needed it. It was always available and only once had a breakdown that it took me ten minutes to fix (even though I also had to make some repairs and modifications to fine-tune the bale wagon in off-hours).
Not only did the bale wagon save us a lot of money in wages, I had no trouble selling it (after we stopped for good making hay) for just as much I had paid when I had bought it. Mechanization in that case won hands-down for us.
You may have noticed more and more self-serve check-outs at supermarkets, and another aspect of mechanization that is in the making to do away with overly-expensive minimum-wage jobs is to have customers in some fast-food joints place orders on computer terminals. Just a few weeks ago I saw a video of a machine that makes hamburgers to order. I suppose that thing will work better for large-volume restaurants, but it will without a doubt eventually be refined to be a good and economical alternative to minimum-wage workers at smaller restaurants as well.
The more demands there are for higher wages, the faster many high-wage jobs will be priced out of the market. The saying “You too can be replaced with a button,” is not just a joke. Mechanization kills jobs, but it needs incentives, and higher minimum wages are a very good incentive for mechanization.
