July 2020

Between encouraged vandalism (with in particular the scandalous debunking of statues of King Leopold II) and the disappearance of a park in the city where I live (I can no longer say "my" city as it disgusts me) in favor of a hundreds of shitty apartments, it was time that I survey the forgotten places to restore my moral health.

Come on, I can't help it. History of rowing against the current and probably making me doomed, two articles exonerating facts about king Léopold II of Belgium (1835-1909) : the first on and the second on A third about the words of Patrice Lumumba, the first Prime Minister of the independent Congo, on Note the harmful role of Arabs in Africa too often hidden by the so-called sole responsibility of Westerners.
To those who blithely compare Leopold II to Hitler, learn the history of the country in which you live instead of blindly following the extremists of the right-thinking left-wing politics !

And in the same vein : justice for the family and the memory of George Floyd : yes. To erect this same Floyd as a hero, saint or what do I know : no. Although he absolutely didn't deserve to die, the guy had a nice criminal record. This man is not an example of morality.

2011-2020 : no government

May 2020

Certainly, Belgium will never be a "normal" country. A decade ago, a serious government crisis had already nearly led to the country disappearing.
History repeats itself...

I therefore take this opportunity to put back online the photo report that I had made during the demonstration of January 23, 2011. Thanks to a few emails exchanged with one of the organizers, I had become the officially unofficial photographer of this demonstration.
To remind you where the country has already passed, I therefore give these few photos to you.

Larry Page, Sergey Brin and their friends from Google™ can tremble ! is already integrating a powerful internal search engine.
The site with more than 130,000 billion referenced web pages can go into hiding.
And why did I integrate this powerful tool ? Uh ... well ... Have a good day

Obviously, I did not write this search engine myself. It’s Mathieu Chartier who kindly makes it available on the website Blog Internet-Formation (in French).

And as we say to the labour office : good research !

Better than Google !
