Should We Bring Back The Death Penalty?

A Of Luxury

The number of murders being carried out these days has gone through the roof and the Law  is not dealing with it properly. When I was young murderers were sentenced to death by hanging and that insured they would never commit such a crime again. Nowadays, murderers are sentenced to little more than ten years and are released after three or four. Many have gone on to commit murder again.

There can be little doubt that with the interference of the European Human Rights Commision and our ‘home-grown Do-Gooders’ our justice system has become a disaster. Every day we hear of murders being committed and the law cannot handle it. Britain has become a nation of killers, and that is sad. People are not even safe in their own homes.

When we leave the European Union I hope that the government will do something to stop this disease once and for all. We need to get back to the laws of the 1940’s and 50’s if this country is ever to become peaceful. It is despicable that you cannot walk down a street in the evening in most towns and cities without being robbed, attacked, or murdered.

I wonder how the anti-death sentence people would feel if one of their family were to be killed? I think they would rapidly change their minds if it was someone dear to them. It is a sad fact that these people have come to rule the law system and made it impossible for our judges to give a proper sentence. Our legal system has become so soft that killers, rapists and thieves get away with their crimes, serving only a very short sentence that does nothing to dissuade them from committing more crimes.

It also evident that the comforts of a prison sentence are hardly a dissuader for these people to ‘go straight’. In all prisons in Britain they have all the comforts of home with each cell having a TV, music centre, computer games and the like. This is not the right way to handle serious criminals, for the only thing they miss is their freedom. They should be made to work every day and have all their ‘toys’ taken away, leaving them with just a bed, washbasin, and toilet in the cells.

Naturally, this would cause a tremendous upset among the criminals and the Army should be brought in to control them for the prison guards could not handle it. Among the prison guards there are many who are in the service of the prisoners and allow them free reign in the prison. These people should be sacked and properly disciplined guards brought in.

If the death penalty is reintroduced for murder we can be sure that the number of killers would rapidly decrease, and people will be much safer on the streets and in their own homes. I just hope that Theresa May’s government will do the right thing, for if she does we will get back to a peaceful existence once again.

Britain Today

Posted in America, Britain, British Humour, Canada, England, European Union, Germany, Modern World, News, UK with tags , , , , on 12/05/2017 by floroy1942

Britain is not what it used to be and the evidence is below:

Daftland

We live in a country called Daftland
The England we knew is no more
Where sensible people do ludicrous things
Or risk breaking some Daftland law.

In Daftland we’ve police dogs with muzzles
Less the villain has cause to complain
And to steal from a shop and say ‘sorry’
Means you’re free with no stain to your name.

You had better leave lights on in buildings
When you lock up and go home at night
’cause the burglars might hurt themselves entering
And there’s no way you’ll be in the right.

When speaking be wary in Daftland
As some terms that you’ve used all your life
Now have connotations unintended
And you’ll end up in all sorts of strife.

We elect politicians in Daftland
To give us the laws of the land
Yet eight laws in ten now come from abroad
The whole thing has got out of hand.

The borders are open in Daftland
And of migrants there’s no keeping track
Just a few of the thousands illegally here
Will ever be caught and sent back.

The exception to this is the hero
Who fought for this land in the war
He’s old and he’s sick, he might cost us a bit
So he’s not welcome here any more.

When the history is written of Daftland
Historians may just recall
That the craziest people in Daftland
Were the public who put up with it all.

I received this by email and thought it worthy of sharing because it really hit the ‘nail on the head’.

The Justice Farce

Posted in America, Britain, England, European Union, Human Rights, Muslim, News, People's Rights, Political Correctness, Prison with tags , , , , on 11/04/2017 by floroy1942

It amazes me how the world had changed over the past seventy years. You can’t turn on the news without hearing that someone has been murdered or attacked. All across the world there are killings in every country day by day. Crime has become so normal that it is seldom reported on the news unless it is a multiple killing.

The Killer Released Early

What has happened to the world and mankind? Have we become so immune to killing that we think nothing of it? In Britain killers do not get a proper sentence for they get ten years only, but are out in three or four. When I was young they were sentenced to death for their crimes. Now the ‘Do-Gooders’ have made all that disappear and sentences are getting shorter and shorter.

In Britain we have such things as ‘Community Service’ which is an utter farce. Those who are sentenced to this rarely turn up, and if they do they do not do as they are supposed to, or fail to carry out what they are told properly. It’s a big joke!

In countries all across the world killers are getting more and more frequent and in some areas of Britain people are afraid to walk on the streets in case they are attacked or robbed, especially at night.

Hanging

In countries like America they are locked up, and in some countries they are still hanged, but the movement to ban the death penalty is gaining ground all across the world. Why! In my view, if you kill someone you deserve to die.

Families all across Britain have to accept the court rulings when one of their family members are killed. There can be no doubt that mankind is sliding into anarchy at an ever-increasing rate in many countries.

In Britain today the Law is an utter joke and I’ll give you an example. Muslims can hold rallies in any town or city and they are escorted by the police. They carry signs that say ‘Death to all non-Muslims’, ‘We demand Sharia Law’ and ‘Islam will dominate the world’.

Muslim Demonstration

On the other hand if a single white person starts to demonstrate against the Muslims they are immediately arrested. Now where is the common sense in that.

The government is the one to blame for this mess because they do nothing against the Muslims for fear of causing trouble on our streets. For years they have allowed the Muslims to virtually take over towns and parts of our cities.

But to get back to the main theme of this post, Killers have it very easy in Britain, and also in Europe where the ‘Do-Gooders’ have strangled our justice system to the extent where it is no longer seen as justice.

In America killers go to jail for a long time, but very few are actually put to death for their crimes. The numbers are dropping year on year.

Rape

The countries of the world have to get on top of this problem if people are to live in peace. The law has to protect the public from rampant killers, rapists and thieves. The only way to do that is to bring back the death penalty and make them pay for what they have done. If this happens the number of killings will nosedive to very few as it used to be.

Britain Is Not What It Used To Be!

Posted in America, Britain, England, European Union, Immigrants, Modern World, News, Teen Violence, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 03/04/2017 by floroy1942

It is a sad fact that the population of Britain have become uncaring to violence on the streets. I read a piece on the news today that proves we have become totally immune to street fights and gangs so long as we are not the victims.

A young asylum seeker was attacked on Shrublands Avenue, Croydon by up to six youths who beat him to a pulp, and what is most sad, is that a crowd of twenty or so people gathered to watch but did nothing to stop it. About half of those who arrived at the scene, instead of stopping it went in and helped the six youths by kicking the the teenager as well. The rest of the people stood watching as the gang of youths beat him and kicked him, mostly in the facial area, until he was gravely injured.

Needlessly to say, the victim ended up in hospital with a fractured skull and a blood clot on his brain.

Why the attack happened no-one knows, but the most probable cause was because he was a foreigner.

I just cannot understand why so many people gathered to watch, and joined in the kicking while no-one intervened, but stood by and watched the poor youth get half beaten to death.

In my day many of the men who came on the scene would have intervened and put a stop to it, but not today. Today people have a morbid curiosity when such things happen and they like to watch.

So far the police have arrested six people for the beating, but with the law being what it is today, they will probably be let off with a warning, or maybe a few days of community service.

There is no doubt that Britain is not what it was in my day, for such a thing would never have happened, and if it did people would step in to stop it. It is a sad indication of what Britain has become today.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said: “Hate crime has no place in London, Britain or anywhere else. Our communities will not be divided by those who seek to sow hate. And we will always take a zero tolerance approach to hate crimes of any type. Anyone who witnesses a hate crime should report it to the police immediately.”

Well, let’s hope the Law does its job and punishes these villains severely.

A Changing World

Posted in America, Britain, Conservation, England, Environment, European Union, Immigrants, Islamic State, News, Nuclear Weapons with tags , , , , on 22/03/2017 by floroy1942

I cannot believe how much the world has changed since I was a boy. I sometimes get the impression that the human race is going stark raving mad, what with all the changes that have happened over the last seventy years.

Beautiful England

When I was a young boy the world was at peace, except for the continuous verbal altercations between communist Russia and America. The only war that took place in those times was the Korean War against the communist north which was short because the United Nations got together a multi-national force to stop them. Despite that the world was for the most part at peace, and countries did not antagonize each other. On top of this we never had violent demonstrations with teenagers setting fire to shops and cars. There were of course demonstrations by the miners in Britain, but for the most part they were more or less peaceful. People went about their daily lives without demonstrations and complaining about what their governments did or did not do.

 

Summer In The UK

The weather was for the most part calm and we didn’t get hurricanes, flooding and drought across the whole world. In Britain winter was cold and we got our fair share of snow, but when spring came it was calm and the trees and plants blossomed and the countryside looked beautiful. In England we had many woods full of bluebells and daffodils as winter past. They have now for the most part disappeared because the farmers wanted to make more money and had them cleared. When summer came we had temperatures in the mid-twenties which was a pleasure for the people. Holiday makers went to English seaside towns and spent their time on the beach basking in the sun. There were no drunks causing mayhem on the streets and drugs were never seen.

The Raging Sea

What a huge change has come over the world today. Now we see all the things that were never heard of in those days. Wars, hurricanes, drought and flooding all across the world, and not to forget the violent demonstrations by the people against something or other. Governments having slanging matches against each other, and tensions have mounted in this modern era, and for what?

ISIS Execution

Currently Europe is battling against the influx of migrants caused by the ISIS war in the Middle East, and the continent is being flooded with these people because few countries have taken the time or effort to put ISIS out of business. I have often said that the United Nations should have stepped in long ago and wiped these people out so that the world can return to peace and all the migrants can go home. As you know, this has never happened because they stay silent.

At the moment Russia, Syria, and the United States are doing all they can to stop these people but arguments about how they should go about it are commonplace. The sad thing is, many ISIS fighters have come to Europe as refugees and have carried out attacks on various nations.

ISIS ‘Refugee’ Arrested At The Border

It was said in a report a few days ago that the whole world will be Muslim by 2050. That I cannot believe but this is what ISIS is trying to achieve. In our prisons Muslim prisoners are trying to convince other prisoners to become Muslim, and the number of people in the U.K. who have converted to Allah is growing. Why?

People in the Middle East have suffered greatly under ISIS but the other Arab countries like Saudi Arabia, Dubai and the UAE have done nothing to help these people so they have all fled to Europe. The only Middle East nation to help has been Jordan, and they are stretched to the limit.

As It Used To Be

We have seen huge changes in the weather due to global warming. Even England has had its share of hurricanes, flooding and drought. But it is far worse in other countries across the globe. Recently dozens of people have lost their lives in the flooding in Peru, and we have seen major droughts across many nations, so for example, it is impossible to grow crops to feed the people, especially in Africa. In the middle of Africa at the moment there are 20 million people who do not have enough food to keep them alive. What are the rich nations doing about this?

Murder On The Streets

Constantly we hear of vicious attacks and murder by young people these days. This was very rare when I was young because we were brought up properly by our parents, and discipline was strict during our formative years. Now all that has gone and the young people do as they please without a thought for others. Almost every day we hear of murder and violence in Britain, sometimes for the most stupid of reasons. Young people go out on a Saturday night and use drugs to get high and consume a lot of alcohol just to have a good time, and then the violence begins. Street fights, and sometimes murder.

The World Of Anarchy

The world has become a sad place and it makes me wonder how long mankind will last. In general we have become so violent against each other that the future of mankind is in doubt. Within a few years complete anarchy will reign in many countries and that will signal the beginning of the end of the human race.

Bribes

We have to get back to law and order on this planet and governments must govern properly for the sake of the people. The main trouble with politicians is the lust for money. Most of them will take bribes for agreeing to dubious suggestions put forward by companies and fellow politicians just to make themselves rich.

Gates And Buffet – Two Who Help Others

We have many rich businessmen who are worth billions, but what do they do with the money – hide it in offshore bank accounts instead of using it to help others. Two of the people who do not conform with this are Bill Gates and Warren Buffet. Most others do not care to help those who are in dire straits.

The Poor And The Rich

Rich countries are doing little to help the starving millions in Africa, and if they do there is always someone who will help themselves to the aid money given by many countries. Look at Haiti for example. There were billions pledged to help the country after their tragic earthquakes that destroyed the capital Port-au-Prince, but very little of it actually arrived to help the people rebuild their capital. Its the same the world over. Money has become a ‘God’ to the current generation, and people will do whatever they can to get as much as possible. It is my belief that all this will end in tragedy for the human race.

Clean Air – A Necessity

One thing we should not forget is the increasing contamination of our atmosphere. In many cities across the world the smog is so thick that people wear masks to stop it getting into their lungs. If this continues, then the life expectancy of the people will be very low. We will no longer see people living to 80 or 100 years as the pollution destroys their lungs.

Poisoning The Atmosphere

Proposals have been put forward to ban all diesel cars on the roads because this is the number one polluter, but this will never happen. We also have to clean up our factories that push out huge volumes of smoke to  get the atmosphere back to normal, but again this will never happen because of the cost.

Get Ready To Lose Parts Of California and Miami

This atmospheric contamination is causing the sea temperatures and level to rise. It is said in America for example, that in thirty or forty years much of the coastal towns in California and Florida will be taken over by the sea which will cause havoc among those living there. These are not the only cities to be affected as there are many more across the world as sea levels rise. The only thing mankind can do is to stop the atmospheric contamination so things can return to normal. This will take years to accomplish, but governments worldwide have to be strong.

The Aftermath

Perhaps the only answer is for the population of this planet to diminish to perhaps a few million and then mankind will be able to continue its existence. This may happen, what with the current tensions between the USA and Russia. If it escalates then someone may be dumb enough to ‘press the button’ and nuclear war will follow. Mind you, the radiation will spread around the globe and most likely few people will survive. I hope this never happens, but you never know.

The Big Problem

Taking everything into account this world has become a tragedy compared to what it was. Very few countries know the meaning of true peace and just government, and to me its only going to get worse. As it gets worse more people will die, especially the starving in Africa.

Yesteryear The Murderers Paid the Ultimate penalty

Currently the law is useless against criminals and murderers these days in Britain. It is a farce that you can kill someone in England and get a ten year sentence, but are out of prison in three or four years. In my time if you kill someone you would go to the gallows and be done with it. But the ‘Goody Goodies’ have ensured that this is no longer the case, and they keep trying for more lenient prison terms because they think that to go to prison will change the minds of these killers. This is a load of bull (and I put that nicely).

Taking everything into consideration I am glad that I am 74 and not 21. For the world is headed for some major upsets in the years to come.

Not All American’s Are Dumb

I got a call from a Kansas Congressman’s staffer, who wanted to go to Cape Town. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then he interrupted me with, ”I’m not trying to make you look stupid, but Cape Town is in Massachusetts ..”
Without trying to make him look stupid, I calmly explained, ”Cape Cod is in Massachusetts , Cape Town is in South Africa ..”  His response — click..

A senior Vermont Congressman called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that’s not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state.
He replied, ‘Don’t lie to me!, I looked on the map, and Florida is a very THIN state!!”

I got a call from a lawmaker’s wife who asked, ”Is it possible to see England from Canada?”
I said, ”No.”
She said, ”But they look so close on the map”

An Illinois Congresswoman called last week. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:30 a.m., and got to Chicago at 8:33 a.m.
I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois , but she couldn’t understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went fast, and she bought that.

A New York lawmaker, called and asked, ”Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to whom?” I said, ‘No, why do you ask?’ He replied, ”Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I’m overweight. I think that’s very rude!”
After putting him on hold for a minute, while I looked into it. (I was dying laughing). I came back and explained the city code for Fresno , Ca. is (FAT – Fresno Air Terminal), and the airline was just putting a destination tag on his luggage..

A New Jersey Congressman called to make reservations, ”I want to go from Chicago to Rhino, New York .”
I was at a loss for words. Finally, I said, ”Are you sure that’s the name of the town?”
‘Yes, what flights do you have?” replied the man.
After some searching, I came back with, ”I’m sorry, sir, I’ve looked up every airport code in the country and can’t find a rhino anywhere.”
”The man retorted, ”Oh, don’t be silly! Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!”
So I scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, ”You don’t mean Buffalo , do you?”
The reply? ”Whatever! I knew it was a big animal.”

A Senator, called and had a question about the documents she needed in order to fly to China . After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded her that she needed a visa. “Oh, no I don’t. I’ve been to China many times and never had to have one of those.”
I double checked and sure enough, her stay required a visa. When I told her this she said, ”Look, I’ve been to China four times and every time they have accepted my American Express!”

 

A Senator called and said, ”I need to fly to Pepsi-Cola , Florida . Do I have to get on one of those little computer planes?”
I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola and fly on a commuter plane.
She said, ”Yeah, whatever, smarty!”

I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman who asked, ”How do I know which plane to get on?”
I asked him what exactly he meant, to which he replied, ”I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these planes have numbers on them.”

A Senator John Kerry aide called to inquire about a trip package to Hawaii . After going over all the cost info, she asked, ”Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii?”

I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn’t get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!)

An aide for a cabinet member once called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas .. I pulled up the reservation and noticed he had only a 1-hour layover in Dallas … When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, ”I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates to save time.”

People can be so funny at times. I hope you enjoyed this.

Roy.
