My slant on running the world.

Remain or Leave? Things To Consider …

Euro MapI’ve kept out of this argument until now, but I thought I’d better speak out as it looks as if it is possible the Leave supporters might actually win. If you are a Leave supporter, please don’t allow that to stop you reading. Don’t you want an opinion from an pensioner who has worked in various industries, run businesses both successfully and with failures, and now relies on a pension? I hope I’m going to give you a different perspective, why not, at least, give me a hearing.

Firstly I think we all ought to consider what we are about to throw away. The European Union, or whatever you want to call it, is an experiment to try to ensure a good trading environment and the ability for people to move freely through a large area of the world.

The Decision To Permit Bombing In Syria

I am quite concerned by the fact that the country seems to consider the need to fly across the border from Iraq to Syria is the same as the dreadful mistake made by Blair and Bush to invade Iraq and then Afghanistan.

Blair and Bush have caused untold misery in the middle east and north Africa by their crusade to oust middle-eastern dictatorships and install the alien concept of democracy in its place. Western interference in Muslim countries has turned the middle-east from an area which welcomed visitors to one which no sensible non-Muslim will visit. This, in itself, has damaged their tourist industries, causing yet more blame to be heaped upon western nations and inspiring the religious fanatics of Daesh to grow in strength and influence.

Religious Nutters

EarthBelieve in God?

Where was he last night and on that flight from Egypt? It is, of course, the irrational belief in an afterlife by these religious fanatics which encouraged them to carry out the atrocities. They believed that they would now be sitting at God’s right hand because of their martyrdom in His name. How many of you also believe that you will one day die and go to heaven and meet your relatives all over again? It is a stupid childish belief, like a security blanket. The trouble is the fanatics are born out of that same belief. The belief in God is the cause of all of this hatred and violence yet people still blindly accept it is all part of the nonentity’s grand plan for his universe. Come on guys, grow up!

Without doubt the ideology we are facing is on a level comparable with the Nazi’s. We have a professional army financed by us all. It should be geared up to deal with this group without mercy. Like everyone who believes in the great nonentity, you cannot reason with them and they continue to rape, murder and enslave children, men and women, throughout the northern middle east. There remains only one alternative if our way of life is going to be upheld. Continue reading

All The World’s Tears

At 6.45am on 26th August, the American people permitted the murder of Alison Parker and Adam Ward.

TV shootingWhile carrying out their work, this TV partnership were gunned down. Adam fell immediately, but Alison did not. She saw this ex-colleague shoot her cameraman and turn the gun upon her. She ran screaming, but could not outpace his bullets which left this attractive 24 year-old girl’s body twitching on the ground as its lifeblood drained away and her brain struggled to accept what was happening to it and never knowing why.

Both left fiancés from the same TV station, one of whom witnessed the event live from the studio and the other had just celebrated their moving in together.

Two lives snuffed out and many more than two people forever traumatised by the action of the ex-colleague who then shot himself.

Islamic Terrorism? Christian Fundamentalism? The Difference Is Just A Couple of Centuries!

Are you able to put aside your beliefs for fifteen minutes? Sadly those who really should be reading this are so indoctrinated that they will probably not.

Human beings have an enormous capacity for love, generosity and compassion, yet those who feel compelled to incorporate that into an organised sanctimonious and convoluted worship of a God who threatens punishment if they misjudge their application of free will, are increasingly adding credence to those who use that very devotion as the foundation for the development of fanaticism and terrorism. Some use the belief in a higher power to convince themselves they should do good works, but others distort those same beliefs to persuade themselves that the same deity requires them to kill and murder to carry out His mysterious plan. What is tragic is that one group don’t seem to realise that their continued conviction in an invented god reinforces the other group’s certainty that their twisted interpretation is justified. Everyone believes in God so God must be great! It is a simple logic.

As our news channels bombard us with stories of beheading, beach massacres and slaughter in mosques, does no one wonder why these individuals are prepared to give up their lives to create such misery and despair within the lives of others?

Only A Fool Ignores Rational Argument – It Is Sad There Are So Many Of Them!

So Eire has chosen to allow gay couples to marry.

Being brought up in the fifties and sixties I had always considered marriage to be a union between male and female. I had felt that while two females or two males should be able to have equal opportunities as a couple, equal rights as a couple and equal status as a couple, somehow the word ‘marriage’ did not apply. Perhaps, I wondered, should there be three different partnerships, marriage for MF, another word for MM and a third for FF? I didn’t know what those words might be.

The Caring Face Of Britain – I Don’t Think!

It has started. David Cameron has had an overall majority for five days and we are already pumping out the warning signs of Tory lack of compassion. This time it is African and middle-eastern refugees.

Can you imagine for a moment what it would be like to be one of those poor people risking your life and that of your family to get across the Mediterranean to the safety of Europe. An escape from countries which Britain and the west have turned into civil disaster zones.
