The Niqab Ban

Ban The Burka

The niqab has now been banned in public places in Denmark as from 1st of August this year. It is time the whole world banned this disgrace. For when we see Muslim women with their face covered it has no place in this modern world. It is a tradition in the Muslim world that has no place in the west. We need to see the faces of people we deal with, especially in shops. It has been banned in France and many other countries and it should be all over Europe.

When you are dealing with someone with their face covered you cannot tell if they are male or female. Some bombers have disguised themselves as women and this is dangerous. We have to see the face of women we deal with but this is not the case in many countries.

It is a tradition in most Arab countries, but this has to stop in Europe. Who knows if they are telling the truth when their face is covered. There is a lot of anger against this ruling but it must be be made inescapable by the Muslim women. This is a step forward for Europe, but some Muslim women say they will not comply. I read in the news that some women will not go out into public places for they are against this ban, but to stay at home forever will be a particularly harsh sentence.

We will see by August 1st how many Muslim women will heed this law. It for sure that not all will bow to the law, but eventually they will have no choice.

Personally, I would like to see the niqab banned throughout world but that will never happen, for the Arab countries will continue to have women covering their faces.

Why The Violence?

Posted in America, Britain, England, European Union, Human Rights, Modern World, News, People's Rights, Police, Teens with tags , , , , on 19/05/2018 by floroy1942

Law enforcement officers respond to Santa Fe (Texas) High School following a shooting in this Harris County Sheriff's Office photo, May 18, 2018.

Yet another shooting in America where ten people were killed at a school and ten others wounded, including a substitute teacher. Why? What is wrong with American youth these days that they have to go around shooting people at schools. Violence has reached a huge proportion in the United States and no-one knows why. The killing of innocent people has got out of hand in the U.S. and its increasing month by month.

What is wrong with these killers who go around murdering people, and they have no regrets. It has to stop! The most obvious thing is to confiscate all weapons from owners and then the U.S. will return to peace. There are millions of Americans who own rifles, pistols and automatic weapons, but most of them do not go around killing people. But there are those who see that killing people as a compunction, for they have twisted brains and want to create havoc.

In this image taken from video, emergency personnel and law enforcement officers respond to a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, after an active shooter was reported on campus, May 18, 2018.

Why do they think like this? In the last year we have seen numerous killings in schools, and for what? I think they should all go to the death chamber and be killed for what they have done.

Nothing like this has ever been seen in the rest of the world, and the reason is guns are popular in the United States, and most people own at least one, be it a handgun, rifle, or an automatic. There are without doubt too many guns in the Unites States, and it is a plague on the general public.

Innocent youth are being targeted in schools and for what? The mind of the killer must be twisted, for they all have the compunction to kill innocent teenagers. Is it that they were insulted or beaten by bullies? This is not a reason to go around killing innocent teenagers.

The killer has been identified as Dimitrios Pagourtzis and he has been arrested by the police. What will happen to him is anybody’s guess. He was a reserved young man, an athlete who had discussed wanting to own guns but didn’t talk of killing people. Something in his mind must have flipped to make him kill his fellow teenagers.

He told the police that he didn’t want to shoot anyone he liked, but he had a Molotov cocktail at his home, and in a vehicle as well as around the high school. He said in the police station that he intended to commit suicide following the shooting, but told law enforcement officials after he was arrested that he didn’t have the courage to go through with it.

It is hard to understand how people get like this and can kill people, especially school mates, but I guess that is the way of the America.

Acid!

I think the world is going mad, for we have so many acid attacks in Britain and its not going to end. Teens have been throwing acid in the face of young women, but why? A law has been introduced to make the selling of acid to young people, but it is not having an effect for they get it at home. Why would teens and young people throw acid into the face of someone they hardly know? It has become normal for young people to do this, but why?

Young people have been scarred for life by these idiots who don’t care what the effects are. If they suffered the same they would regret it for the rest of their lives. Some people have horrible scars on their face caused by these attacks, and they will live with it for the rest of their lives.

Who in their right mind would do such a thing, scarring someone for forever. It just doesn’t make sense. These animals should be locked up for a very long time but the trouble is, the police can’t do much about it. They don’t know who has done this horrible thing, and to track them down is difficult.

Britain is going crazy and it has to stop. But how will it end? the police must make a move to stop these attacks and put the perpetrators away for a long time for it will only get worse. I wonder how this got started and who started it. Young women are disfigured for life but what makes the attackers do this. Do they have something against them to make them do this or is it just a prank to disfigure someone for life.

Some can recover, but not all, especially if they are attacked in the face. If they are, some will go blind for the acid gets into the their eyes. It is a scandalous form of torture that many will live with for the rest of their lives. Disfigurement on the face will have a heartbreaking effect on the victims.

Some can have plastic surgery to remove the disfigurement but not all. They will have to live the rest of their lives with a face that is burned and horribly disfigured, and for what? The acid burns the skin and many do not have water nearby to wash away this horrible contamination.

I wish I knew what made youngsters do this, for it is a horrible way to attack someone. Every day we hear of people being attacked with acid and the police should be doing something about it. Stop and search of young teens should be introduced to find those that are holding acid in their clothes, and they should arrest them immediately. It is the only way to stop this barbarism.

Why Are We So Violent These Days

Posted in America, Britain, England, European Union, Modern World, News, Police, Political Correctness, Prison, Teens with tags , , , , on 12/03/2018 by floroy1942

When I was young the world was never so violent, and we lived in peace for most of the time. For murder the death sentence restrained killers from committing murder for they knew if they were caught the would be hanged. Now all that is ‘out of the window’ as killers get no more than four to six years in prison, except for some. Even though they are sentenced to prison for a long time, they are released after a few short years.

What has happened to the Justice System? Its all to do with the European interference. We are no longer allowed to hang killers, and their sentences are abominable. I would like to see them hanged once we leave the European Union, and then perhaps the rate of murders will go down as it was before.

We have to get back to the old time Justice System once we have left the European Union for the number of murders and attacks on young and old folk are disgraceful. You can never feel safe when walking the streets of Britain, for at some time you will be attacked, especially at night in towns and cities.

We have to stop these attacks when we leave the Union, for otherwise we will live in hell. The laws must be changed to stop this, otherwise no-one will be safe on our streets anymore. These killers must be hanged for their brutality, and will we see a lot less victims on our streets. Outside of disco’s and bars we see see street fights as someone gets infuriated with someone else and we have to stop this.

The police do not have enough men to stop these fights, and it is a general thing every Friday and Saturday night. We need to enrol more police, but Theresa May will not do it. It is time she changed her mind and got more police on the streets to stop this.

It is time for some drastic action on the part of the government to stop all this mayhem.

The Weather

Posted in America, Britain, Canada, China, England, European Union, Germany, Modern World, News, Russia with tags , , , , on 09/03/2018 by floroy1942

What is happening to the weather these days? We have never seen such a bad winter, and it is extending into Spring. There are snow storms all across America, Britain, Europe and Russia. Here in the  south of Spain we have missed most of the bad weather, although we have had it cold and strong winds.

gw-images-extreme-weather-cars-covered-in-snow

In the north of Spain we have had snow and icy temperatures but it has not spread south. In America and Britain we have had snow storms and traffic has all but stopped. Some drivers have braved the weather, but often get stuck in the snow. In the future we will see massive floods across America and Britain as the snow melts.

In other parts of the world, especially in the Far East, there have been massive floods and damage to houses caused by storms. What is our world coming to?

Its all to do with the contamination of the atmosphere by cars and factories. We have to stop this or the weather will get worse. The summer temperatures are climbing steadily, and they will get hotter year on year. Last year we had temperatures as high as thirty five degrees last summer in Spain, and it will get hotter this year as the contamination of the atmosphere gets worse.

Industrial Air Contamination

This is all across the world as the temperatures rise. In the Middle East the temperatures are the highest ever recorded, and as summer approaches it will get hotter.

We have to do something about it or the world will will become a furnace. We have to get rid of cars on our roads and the factories will have to stop putting poisonous smoke into the atmosphere. Unless something is done very soon we will be living in a treacherous world. Governments will have to take some drastic action to stop this contamination of the atmosphere otherwise we will be be living in hell!

Has The World Gone Crazy?

I think it has, and do you know why? Because the winter weather has caused major disruption all across the world, for we have never seen a season like this in my lifetime. We have huge amounts of snow all across Britain, USA and the most of Europe and it isn’t over yet. Never in my life have I seen a winter like this. People have frozen to death in the cold, and in Britain drivers have been trapped in their cars for as long as eighteen hours. This is unheard of. After the snow and ice is gone we will see major flooding across the United States and Britain, and many other countries. We have seen major rain and flooding in Far Eastern countries and it does not stop.

In summer the whole world is getting hotter, and even the north and south pole are disintegrating. Its all to do with the climate change, but some people  will just not believe it. We are filling our atmosphere with gasses from cars and factories, and this is causing the heat to remain around the Earth instead of dissipating into space.

pexels-photo-297927There are well over a million cars and trucks on our roads and most of them are diesel, which is polluting the atmosphere that we breathe. On top of this we have factories that are issuing poisonous gasses into the atmosphere, especially in places like China and India. Some governments, like the Germans are planning to stop diesel cars from entering city centres, but this will not cure the problem.

There is a plan to introduce electric cars onto the roads, but that is sometime into the future, and we will see how the power generators will find enough power to provide us all. I don’t think they will, for we will be short of energy until new power stations are built.

When summer comes we will see the hottest season with temperatures creeping up to the upper thirties. In some parts of the world the temperatures will reach over forty degrees. How will people survive in these temperatures? Already the farmland in Central Africa is so dry that people cannot grow crops anymore, and that is why we have so many refugees who are starving to death.

It is in times like these that all countries should turn to the United Nations for answers, but they do not seem able to help. All they do is talk, but do nothing. The United Nations should be a powerful body of people who are responsible for peace on Earth, and to solve the many problems, but they are incapable of doing this.

The one thing that gets me is that they do not have a majority vote in the U.N. Each time Russia blocks something that everybody else has voted for and this is no good. It should be a majority vote in the U.N. so that all sides have a say in what to do next. In Syria the battles between the rebels and and Syrian forces are continuing, and it will not stop despite the resolution passed by the U.N.

In my view the U.N. should have stepped in against the terrorists that have caused trouble all across the globe. For it is shameful they did not. Not since the Korean War in 1956 have they done a thing to stop trouble in the world.

It is shameful that the U.N. does nothing to stop the fighting in the world. In Africa they have stopped some terrorists from fighting each other, but the U.N. Army has been accused of raping African women in these countries and nothing has been done to stop them.

It seems to me that the U.N. is a waste of time, for they do nothing to stop the fighting around the world, and all they do is talk. It is getting to be a sad world, and we are heading for destruction of the planet.

Summer Is Coming

Posted in America, Britain, Conservation, Environment, European Union, Modern World, News, Politics, Spain, UK with tags , , , , on 17/02/2018 by floroy1942

Thank goodness the winter is over and the temperatures are rising. Here in southern Spain the temperatures are climbing, even though we have occasionally cold winds. When we walk along the sea front in Marbella we see many tourists from England walking with just a shirt and shorts and I suppose they are grateful for the warm weather, even though it is freezing in England.

I would not like to live in England during the winter as the temperatures are often below freezing, but things are changing. It is certain that we will get extremely hot weather in the summer, just as last year, but we can live with it. In a couple of months we will get rid of the cold winds and life here will be enjoyable.

Pretty soon the beaches will be crowded with holiday makers as more and more people come here for a holiday to get away from the cold in England.

The weather patterns around the globe are changing as many places get hotter during the summer. This all due to the contamination of our atmosphere which is not allowing the excessive heat to escape into space. Temperatures are rising all across the world, and pretty soon we will have such high temperatures in places that we have never known before.

When I was young the summer temperatures were in the mid-twenties, and occasionally close to thirty degrees. Now we have temperatures up in the forties in some areas and this all due to the contamination of our atmosphere. It is essential that we curb the gases from our vehicles which are causing the temperatures around the globe to rise at an alarming rate over the last few years. If mankind is to continue living on this planet we have to do something about it, and very soon, otherwise humans will be finished on this planet.

There are plans to introduce electric vehicles, which may or may not reduce the contamination of our atmosphere. But it will take maybe fifty years or more for the contamination of our atmosphere to get back to normal. In the meantime, many will die of lung cancer and other diseases. This will reduce the population of our world which is not such a bad thing. Already we have millions across the world who are dying of hunger and disease, and it will not stop unless we do something about it.

Mankind has the technology and brains to do something about this disaster, but governments are not making a move to curb the atmospheric contamination.
