Yes Angela – You are Solely Responsible For The Fall Of The European Union!

I suppose it was only a matter of time before the migrants started crossing the English Channel to Britain by boat. In the last few weeks we have seen the first attempts, and some predictions are that it could become as bad as the Mediterranean.

Personally I doubt that, for although the crossing may be shorter, the seas are much rougher and there is constant ship movement through the Channel which could sink a boat without ever noticing.

But, it is certain that many will try to get to the United Kingdom over the coming summer months, and for that we must be prepared.

In my view, as soon as they are caught they should be arrested and returned to France immediately. It is the only way to stop the flow of immigrants, for once they see the futility of their actions it will hopefully slow down and stop. For every person we allow to stay, we encourage more to make the perilous crossing.

I have said it many times , but I will say it again. I have nothing against genuine refugees from Syria and Iraq coming to our shores temporarily, but I have no time for the economic refugees whose only desire is to live for free off the British benefits system.

As you would expect, part of the problem is those who make such journey’s possible, i.e. the people smugglers. This has become a highly lucrative trade in recent years, and some groups are making millions within a very short time. In my opinion much of this money is being used to fund terrorist groups like ISIS. Most certainly the smugglers themselves are making a lot of money, and it is a trade that is expanding all the time.

Those idiots in Brussels may well  be patting themselves on the back for the agreement with Turkey to shut the door to Greece, but as I have said before, as the summer comes the smugglers will just increase their efforts from Libya to Italy. Already the traffic is large between these two countries, but one thing is for sure, it will increase as time goes on.

Predictions are that Europe can expect  at least a million more refugees this summer, and the big question is, where do we put them all?

Ever since Merkel made the biggest mistake ever in European politics by her open invitation to refugees from Syria and Iraq to come to Germany, the continent has been overrun by so-called ‘refugees’, most of whom are here purely for economic reasons.

The immigrants are causing chaos in many countries, and although Germany is asking others to take part of the inflow she precipitated, many nations have refused.

At Least The Papers Got It Right!

At Least The Papers Got It Right!

Considering that approximately two thirds of all migrants are economic refugees, and the difficulty in weeding them out, this has left Europe with a major problem, one of the reasons why the U.K. is holding a referendum on leaving the E.U.

There can be little doubt that Angela Merkel’s rash statement to refugees caused terrific upset within the E.U., and Britain’s public are not the only ones who want to leave. Her single stupid action could be the catalyst to the whole Union unraveling and being condemned to history.

As I have previously stated, there are a number of country’s that also want to hold a referendum on leaving the E.U., and it is certain that if Britain does decide to leave this will gain momentum.

Europe has not seen such troubled times since the Second World War and this one will not be easy to overcome. As the ‘refugee’s’ flood in, the problems with housing, the economy, education, and last but not least, the steady influx of ISIS fighters who are hiding among them, will cause chaos within the Union.

I for one do not believe the Union will survive this crisis, for many countries have already closed their borders to the immigrants to protect their own. As the European Union fades into history the blame will land squarely on the shoulders of Angela Merkel.

A brunette, redhead, and blonde are stranded on the edge of a cliff. An angel appears and instructs them to jump off the cliff and say out loud what they would like to land on safely. The brunette goes first. She jumps and says, “Pillows!” She lands on a pile of pillows at the bottom. The redhead goes next. She jumps and says “Feathers!” She lands on a mass of feathers below. The blonde walks up to the edge, but trips on a rock, yelling, “Shit!” as she falls off.

Two men broke into a drugstore and stole all the Viagra. The police put out an alert to be on the lookout for the two hardened criminals.

Innkeeper: “The room is $15 a night. It’s $5 if you make your own bed.” Guest: “I’ll make my own bed.” Innkeeper: “Good. I’ll get you some nails and wood.”

3Johnny was at school and the teacher said, “Someone use fascinate in a sentence.” Sally answered, “The zoo was fascinating.” The teacher said, “Sorry, Sally, I said to use fascinate in a sentence.” Maria suggested, “I was fascinated at the zoo.” Once again the teacher said, “No, Maria, I specifically said to use fascinate in a sentence.” Johnny said, “My sister has ten buttons on her sweater.” Again the teacher said, “Sorry, Johnny, I said use fascinate in a sentence.” Johnny replied, “I know, but her boobs are so big she can only fasten eight.”

The bell rang for school to start and John walked in late. Mr. Clark asked, “John, why are you late?” He replied, “I was on Cherry Hill.” Then he sat down. Ten minutes later Nathan walked in late and Mr. Clark repeated, “Why are you late?” Nathan answered, “I was on top of Cherry Hill.” Five minutes later Kevin walked in late and Mr. Clark said to him, “Kevin, where have you been?” Kevin replied, “I was on Cherry Hill.” Ten minutes later a girl walked in the classroom and Mr. Clark asked, “Hi there, what’s your name?” The girl replied, “Cherry Hill.”

A guy and his date are parked out in the country away from town, when they start kissing and fondling each other. Just then, the girl stops and sits up. “What’s the matter?” asks the guy. She replies, “I really should have mentioned this earlier, but I’m actually a prostitute, and I charge $100 for sex.” The man thinks about it for a few seconds, but then reluctantly gets out a $100 bill, pays her, and they have sex. After a cigarette, he just sits in the driver’s seat looking out the window. “Why aren’t we going anywhere?” asks the girl. “Well, I should have mentioned this before,” replies the man, “but I’m actually a taxi driver, and the fare back to town is $50.

During a discussion at Sunday school, a nun asks the children what they think God takes you by when you die. A kid responds, “I think God takes you by your feet, because once I walked into my parents room and my mom’s feet were in the air and she was screaming, “Oh God, I’m coming!!!”

On hearing that her elderly grandfather has just passed away, Katie goes straight to her grandparents’ house to visit her 95-year-old grandmother and comfort her. When she asks how her grandfather has died, her grandmother replies, “He had a heart attack while we were making love on Sunday morning.” Horrified, Katie tells her grandmother that two people nearly 100 years old having sex will surely be asking for trouble. “Oh no, my dear. Many years ago, realizing our advanced age, we figured out the best time to do it was when the church bells would start to ring. It was just the right rhythm. It was nice, slow, and even. Nothing too strenuous, simply in on the ding and out on the dong.” She pauses, wipes away a tear and then continues, “And if that damned ice cream truck hadn’t come along, he’d still be alive today!”

On the roof of a very tall building are four men; one is asian, one is mexican, one is black, and the last one is white. The asian walks to the ledge and says, “This is for all my people” and jumps off the roof. Next, the mexican walks to the ledge and also says, “This is for all my people” and then he jumps off the roof. Next is the black guy’s turn. The black guy walks to the ledge and says, “This is for all my people” and then throws the white guy off the roof.

A couple is trying to have a baby. Finally, the blonde tells her husband, “Honey, I have great news! We’re pregnant, and we’re having twins!” The husband is overjoyed and says to his wife, “Honey that’s wonderful, but how do you know so soon that we’re having twins?” She nods her head and says, “Well, I bought the twin pack pregnancy test and they both came out positive!”

A Love Poem

Posted in America, Britain, Canada, England, Europe, European Union, Germany, News, Relationships, UK with tags , , , , on 25/05/2016 by floroy1942

A Summer Story

The birds dart swiftly to and fro

and I am sure they really know

they tell the flowers and the bees

the wind that rustles through the trees

they tell the fox, and rabbit too

the earth so wide, the sky of blue

they tell the creatures of the night

until the break of morning light.

And now the wind is on it’s way

for it too has much to say

it tells the valley’s deep and green

it tells the mountain and the stream

for blowing over forest land

or far across the desert sand

it has reached the foreign shore

to tell its story just once more.

In just a while the story’s known

in every place and every home

by every rock and every tree

by every wave upon the sea

it’s known by every drop of rain

and blade of grass upon the plain

the story of the love we share

forever ours, beyond compare.

Roy Peters

 

I hope you enjoyed it.

Religion Is Dying In Britain

Posted in America, Britain, Christianity, England, Justice, News, Parenting, Prison, Teen Violence, Theft with tags , , , , on 24/05/2016 by floroy1942

ChurchIt seems that Britain is to become a non-religious country in a few short decades. A report out today indicates that the number of people who consider themselves to have no religion is increasing at a steady rate.

In 2014 a survey showed that 48.5% claimed they had no religion compared to 43.8% who said they had. The 43.8% included Anglicans, Catholics and other denominations. So it would seem that religion is dying in the U.K.

Mind you, I am not surprised considering the state of today’s middle-aged people and in particular the youth. In general, few people in the country today think of anything but ‘self’, which is sad. Yes I know there are those who care for others, but today they are becoming a minority.

Life-long friends like we had when I was young are a thing of the past, for today friends come and go like the wind.

Yet Another Murder - How Many This Month?

Yet Another Murder – How Many This Month?

Never in the history of our country has there been such brutality among the people, and I say this because of the number of brutal murders, rape and robberies that happen today. Hell’s bells, you can’t even have a slight accident today without the driver of the car you touched getting out and beating you up. Just think about it and you will know I am right, at least the old people will.

At one time the greatest majority of people were held in check by their religion and would not think of committing robberies or murder, but today they think nothing of it. “Oh what do I care. I will only get a couple of years in prison if I am caught.”

When they kill an old-age pensioner for a few pounds they have no remorse at all, or when they seriously injure someone in a street brawl on a Saturday night.

When all today’s old-age pensioners are dead, religion will die in Britain along with them. We will see all our churches closed down and more than likely turned into mosques. Now there’s a thought! All our church clergy and bishops will be lining up at the dole office for their weekly handout.

You might be forgiven for thinking that religion has no place in today’s world, but you would be wrong. Religion has for centuries given people a set of standards to live by, being kind to others, helping others, and caring about those who are less fortunate than themselves. I am not saying that everyone lived by these rules, but the greater majority did.

Prison Today - Like A Holiday

Prison Today – Like A Holiday

When I was young there were very few murders in the country and the killers were hung for their crimes. Now-a-days they get off with a few short years in a prison that is like a holiday camp with all the mod-cons. I much preferred the old system that put the fear of God into any would-be killer.

It is a sad situation, but is something we have to accept for the future.

Downing Street Shenanigans!

Posted in America, Britain, David Cameron, Elections, England, European Union, Government, News, Politics, UK with tags , , , , on 22/05/2016 by floroy1942

Says It All!There can be little doubt that David Cameron is using every trick in the book to persuade the people to vote for not leaving the European Union. He is now guilty of telling outright lies in an effort to swing the vote his way.

He has been accused of offering knighthoods to many business leaders to persuade them to publicly denounce the ‘Out’ campaign. Some of them have been bold enough to order every worker in the company to vote ‘In’, and he has come up with so much rubbish when addressing the people that its just incredible.

He warns that prices will rise in the supermarkets for example and add £220 a year to everyone’s shopping bill. He says that it will cause a war in Europe, now where on earth did he get that from? People in the Treasury are saying that our economy will collapse if we leave. What a load of hogwash.

We may well go through some hard times for a short while, but when we get into the throes of international trade things will improve and we will be better off. No-one should imagine that every company we do business with in Europe will suddenly cancel contracts with U.K. firms.

This is but two examples of the rubbish he is sprouting in order to get everyone to vote ‘In’. He has done some crafty work behind the scenes to get many business leaders to back the ‘In’ campaign, and also many government departments, the NHS leaders are also on the list, along with many other organizations.

All I have to say is that if you believe all this bullshit coming out of Cameron, his minions and friends, then you deserve to be a part of the State of Europe, which is the aim of those in Brussels who want to rule the whole continent.

It is time we became a sovereign nation once again, where we the people can determine what we do. We desperately need to close our borders before being totally overrun with immigrants, and also we have to get rid of the Human Rights idiots in Strasbourg so that the nation can get back a proper justice system.

Humans Won’t Be Around Much Longer

Posted in America, Britain, Canada, Conservation, Environment, European Union, Modern World, News, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 22/05/2016 by floroy1942

OverpopulationA bold statement if ever there was one, but the way things are going on planet Earth, and the way we are messing things up, it could come true within a few decades.

I read with interest a report by NASA that this year has broken all records for being the hottest Spring in history. You can bet your life that we will see reports at the end of the year that the summer will also become the hottest on record. You have to ask how long this trend will continue?

We Are Not Complaining

We Are Not Complaining

Whether we like it or not our planet is changing, and not for the better, although some holiday makers may disagree. One of the major problems with the world hotting up is something we depend on to survive, i.e. water.

Already we have seen record droughts in various parts of the world which in turn threaten our food supply. Granted most people in the western world are not feeling the effects of such a thing at the moment because the supermarkets are still full. But what if this tendency continues?

Massive Ice Loss Since 1979

Massive Ice Loss Since 1979

Another major point is the loss of ice at the north and south poles. Huge areas have lost their ice cover as it melts and heads to the sea. This has already been reported as raising the sea levels, and it will get worse as time goes by.

Maldives - Soon To Be Underwater

Maldives – Soon To Be Underwater

Scientists have predicted that with the rising sea levels, places like Florida and many along the Californian coast among others will be lost to the sea. The rising sea levels are already affecting some coast dwellers. It is anticipated that the Pacific islands of the Maldives will disappear within twenty years as the rising sea covers them. I know I would never buy a house in any of these places.

Hail Storm Damage In India

Hail Storm Damage In India

We have seen unparalleled changes in the weather in many countries across the globe. The storms, flooding, rainfall and droughts which are not restricted to the Far East, are something we should be taking note of, even if it does not affect us at the moment, for it is a sign of things to come.

It is easy as we sit in the comfort of our homes to disbelieve everything the scientists tell us and pass it off as scaremongering. But you only have to look at what is happening across the world to see that they may just be right.

How It Is!

How It Is!

You and the wife still drive to work every day along with millions of others and think nothing of it, but when you do this you are adding to the problem, maybe only at an infinitesimal level, but so are billions of others, and in such large numbers it becomes a major problem for the environment.

Our CO2 emissions just cannot be handled by the Earth’s climate and it is steadily becoming more and more contaminated. Since the 1900’s the number of vehicles has risen to over a billion on the world’s roads, and it is increasing daily.

Industrial Air Contamination

Industrial Air Contamination

On top of this of course we have the industrial emissions. Factories that are still using coal as a source of power, and of course the electricity generating stations, are all adding to the CO2 levels on the planet. If we keep this up, very soon the planet will be so contaminated that human life will become extinct.

Another major contributor to this problem is the rampant birthrate in countries like India and China. As an example, the population of these two countries is greater than all other countries put together.

No Hope!

No Hope!

The world population has grown to such an extent that millions are dying of hunger and sickness, and there is no help for any of them. If the predictions are right, based on our current birthrate, the world population will grow to nine billion by 2040. These people are already suffering from major food shortages, so imagine what will happen by 2040. It could affect all of us!

Bold words and I guess the greater majority of people will scoff at this prediction, just as they do when we are warned by the scientists. But if we keep up our present lifestyle something has to give!

There can be little doubt that if humanity is to survive, fundamental changes have to be made to the way we live. As the old saying goes: ‘You can’t have your cake and eat it too!’

Are We Heading For Extinction?

Speaks For Itself!

Speaks For Itself!

Life has changed dramatically since I was a boy, for now it seems as if the whole world is going mad. You cannot pick up a newspaper today without it being full of reports of world problems like terrorists, corruption, murders, diseases, and now the constant high level of tension between Russia, Europe and the United States.

Terrorists often grab the headlines with their attacks on the innocent population of various countries, in particular Iraq and Syria, but the general consensus of opinion  is that we can expect more attacks in Europe as they get more organized.

Greed - Man's Undoing!

Greed – Man’s Undoing!

Corruption is never far from the headlines either, when you consider how many leaders and politicians of various countries are involved in it. Personally, I fail to see how someone with a billion dollars in their account can want more because it would be impossible for them to spend that much in a lifetime. But that’s how people are these days! They call it pure and simple greed!

You cannot pick up a newspaper today without there being a story of some brutal murder being committed by people for no logical reason. In Britain today we have regular reports of old age pensioners for example, being killed for just a few pounds they have in their purse. Part of the reason for this is that criminals never get a proper sentence for their crimes, because the whole British Justice System has been watered down to the effect that all they receive as punishment is three or four years in prison.

We've Tried Everything

We’ve Tried Everything

It was reported recently that most antibiotics are now useless against major killing diseases because they have been overused by doctors over the last twenty or so years. “OH! You have a cold, here is an antibiotic!” Now we find that very many diseases are immune to them, and if there is an outbreak of a deadly disease we have no answer.

It has also been reported that the pharmaceutical companies do not spend money on research to find new ones because it lowers their profits. As with the corrupt, its all about money, and masses of it! Now however, we are entering a dangerous era, because pretty soon their will be no antibiotics worth handing out because they do not work. This could mean thousands and thousands of deaths that need not have happened.

Is This What We Want As A Species?

Is This What We Want As A Species?

The tensions between the world’s most powerful countries is steadily growing for one reason or another. Admittedly, Russia and the USA are cooperating in the Middle East to rid the world of ISIS, but at the same time, the move by the USA to place missile batteries in Ukraine and soon Estonia and Latvia, is raising tensions because Russia thinks these moves are a direct threat to them. There can be little doubt that should fighting break out between the two countries, which will drag in the European Union because of NATO, it will not be long before one or the other resorts to nuclear weapons. In that event there is little hope for mankind.

We as a species have traveled a long way from the times when we lived in caves, and the growth of technology has made life so much easier for us all. The trouble is, this growth has not only been with the things that make our daily lives easier, but also in weapons, including those of mass destruction.

It would only take one lunatic to press a single button and we could end up in nuclear war. If this happened, the whole world would soon be covered in a cloud of radioactive dust which would mean the end of human life on the planet.

It’s not something I am looking forward to, but there again, at my age, who cares!!!!

Roy.
