Teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg endorses Biden
GRETA THUNBERG NOW GETTING POLITICAL
“I never engage in party politics. But the upcoming US elections is above and beyond all that,” Thunberg tweeted. “From a climate perspective it’s very far from enough and many of you of course supported other candidates. But, I mean…you know…damn! Just get organized and get everyone to vote #Biden”
Thunberg has become an outspoken figure, drawing much media attention since leading school strikes in her home country of Sweden in 2018. She was awarded Time’s Person of the Year award while also being nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2019.
President Trump mocked Thunberg when she was named Time’s Person of the Year, saying it was “so ridiculous,” and that she “must work on her anger management problem.”
The Biden campaign has charged the Trump administration with ignoring science on topics ranging from climate change to the coronavirus pandemic. However, Biden’s stance on the fossil fuels and fracking have come up at both the first presidential debate and the vice presidential debate as the Trump campaign tries to use this to paint Biden as “too liberal.”
Yet Biden’s climate change plan doesn’t get rid of fracking or fossil fuels, something he’s said repeatedly. It does, however, bar any new oil drilling leases on public lands.
DAWG SAYS: GRETA WAS SNUBBED BY TRUMP SOME TIME BACK WHEN SHE THOUGHT SHE WOULD GET AN AUDIENCE WITH THE PRESIDENT.
THIS POOR YOUNG MANIPULATED GIRL IS NOW BUTT HURT AND SHE WANTS TO DABBLE IN POLITICS TO GET EVEN.
AND APPARENTLY SHE DOES UNDERSTAND THE ISSUES WITH BIDEN AS HE IS NOT GOING TO STOP SOME ENVIROMENTAL ISSUES.
Bad tenants leave home in complete chaos – landlord decides to teach them a lesson
When you live month-to-month in a home, you have an obligation to pay rent and abide by your landlord’s rules. It isn’t a hard concept. You would hope that most people would be able to do that but unfortunately, there are always people out there who make life for their landlord’s a little more difficult.
Back in June 2018, this unlucky landlord named Thomas Ravaux came back to a mess of a home in Rozoy-ser Serre, France, all thanks to his awful tenants who were living there.
They made a complete mess and on top of that, they refused to pay rent.
Thomas did what any good landlord would do and immediately took photos of how the place was left.
Spoiler alert: It was in pretty terrible shape.
In one room there was just piles of trash and cardboard stacked up on top of each other, almost reaching all the way up to the ceiling. In another photo, there is even more trash — so much, that you can’t even see the floor. You would not be able to walk around if you were in this home.
Another photo showed an equally dirty bathroom, a filthy couch, and one room even had a substance that looked like either dog food or rabbit poop on the floor…
Thomas shared these photos on Facebook to raise awareness.
“This is how I get home after 14 months of outstanding. Thank you to the tenants of the apartment. Living with 3 kids like this hats off!!!” Thomas wrote via Facebook.
“Not to mention the food lost in the fridge offered by the restaurants of the heart! Shame on you! Courage to your new owner who rent you a house in brunehamel!” He added.
It seems like these people were the least trustworthy tenants on the entire planet.
His home was covered in garbage. He was disturbed.
So Thomas decided to teach them a lesson.
To get revenge, Thomas called his lawyer and got approval to pack up all of the tenants’ stuff and give it back to them.
He contacted a dump trump company who would then take everything off his hands — all of the trash they left behind.
Luckily for Thomas, he was able to find out where the tenants were renting a new home. So he brought the dump truck over to their front door and dumped all of the trash right then and there. What a great surprise!
All of their trash was left out on the street. It was a totally savage move on Thomas’ part and totally deserved!
DAWG SAYS I HAD A SHORT STINT AT PROPERTY MANAGEMENT A FEW YEARS BACK AND I ALSO DOCUMENTED THE PLACE. SEE HERE:
THIS IS A TRUE STORY AND MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCEAND I DID RECIEVE A FEW THREATS OVER THE ABOVE POST
(28 October 2019, Japan) “Hands are numb…but must operate smart phone,” muttered 47-year-old Tedzu to his livestream audience as he skidded and stumbled up the snow-covered Shubashiri trail of Mount Fuji. “I wish I had brought heat packs,” he lamented, and then he was heard to say, “Wait, I think I am slipping!”
62 miles west of Tokyo, iconic Mount Fuji is one of Japan’s three holy mountains, a 12,389-foot volcanic summit visited by religious pilgrims, mountain climbers, and sightseers. The trek is cold and slippery even during the brief summer season, when amenity stations are staffed and available for the benefit of climbers. In the off-season, the stations are closed and mountain conditions are downright hostile and inhospitable. A winter climber needs the proper gear, climbing experience, and a booster pack of common sense.
Tedzu, alas, lacked all three.
HE WAS NOT DRESSED APPROPIATELY
Wearing street clothes suitable for a typical October day in Tokyo, and carrying nothing more than a pair of climbing poles, Tedzu fired up his smart phone and proceeded up the Shubashiri trail which, incidentally, most climbers use only for descent. Live-streaming for the Niconico video-sharing platform, he entitles his video “Let’s Go to Snowy Mt. Fuji.” In hindsight, the title implies that Tedzu considered “Snowy Mt. Fuji” as safe as a ski resort or Christmas tree farm. Viewers began tuning in, following his happy jaunt up the ash-covered trail. Ashes soon turned to snow, and then to deep snow. Tedzu’s viewers were now being treated to a litany of complaints about cold numb hands and a bitter lack of hot packs. Those watching might have started to feel a bit badly for Tedzu.
This was a very good time for him to turn back and resume a life (key word) of relative anonymity. A turning point, as it were. But the urge to continue–perhaps motivated by reluctance to disappoint his viewers–encouraged Tedzu to trudge farther into obvious and imminent danger.
DARWIN AWARD WINNER OF THE DAY MT. FUJI CLIMBER
Continuing social media commentary as he juggles climbing poles and smart phone in his frostbitten mitts, Tedzu demonstrates a classic case of misplaced priorities when he states that despite numb extremities, he “MUST continue to operate” his livestream. His viewers no doubt notice that the trail has suddenly become narrower, the protective fence has ended, and he is perilously close to the brink. He has now passed the point of no return. There is absolutely nothing his viewers could do except tune out in disbelief, or perhaps place wagers amongst themselves on his odds of returning intact.
“‘Oh, this place is slippery, getting dangerous,” he belatedly notices, “I’m trying to walk by the rocks, yes, rocks. It’s a steep downhill…!” Does his audience hear the reassuring sound of crampons gripping the ice as he continues past the end of the safety fence into uncertain territory? Of course not. He did not bring crampons
THE CLIMBER KNEW HE HAD A STEEP SLOPE
The slope at that point is 30 degrees, as anyone still watching could see. In his continued play-by-play march along an increasingly risky path, Tedzu frequently cautions himself against falling. Some of his viewers might have given a wry chuckle at his sudden realization of what he had gotten himself into. His inappropriate footwear now begins failing him as he trips and stumbles on. More than once, he asks himself whether he is “on the right track.” Viewers already know the answer.
Astonishingly close to the summit for an amateur winter hiker, Tedzu at last utters the anticlimactic words, “Wait… I’m slipping!” Experienced Mount Fuji climbers say, “If you start slipping, you have ONE chance at self-arrest before it’s too late.” Even now, Tedzu might drop his phone and jab his climbing poles into the ground…! But, no. In an instant it becomes apparent that his smart phone is the more intelligent one. Still live-streaming away, Tedzu begins an uncontrolled slide down the rocky snowy slope. Viewers are treated to a spectacle of feet flailing and poles tumbling free. A few seconds later, the phone footage abruptly stops, the final chilling image shows a climbing pole frozen in mid-flight.
HIS VIEWERS CALLED AUTHORITIES
His viewers promptly alerted authorities. The 47-year-old’s lifeless body was found the next day at an altitude of 9800 feet, 1000 meters away from where he began his fall. But for a little preparedness, the hero was lost. Gloves and crampons, and a sprinkle sense, was all Tedzu needed to create a spectacular livestream on the ascent of Japan’s holy mountain, and he might have had another 47 years to relive and enjoy that experience. Watching the video, one can almost feel the “mind-numbing cold” Tedzu describes, but in the end, cold was not the culprit!
