Walking around these days you see more obese people than slim ones. Obesity is becoming an epidemic of huge proportions and it won’t go away. People are stuffing themselves with poor food that is supplied by the food manufacturers and it it needs to change.

Crops are no longer grown naturally, but fed with chemicals instead of allowing them to grow naturally. Many farmers have two or three crops a year fed by these chemicals and they all end up in the food factories. They are not natural, but have many chemicals added, and on the whole they are tasteless without adding more chemicals like salt, pepper and sauces to give them flavour.

I cannot for the life of me see why so many people go to McDonald’s and Burger King among others to have a meal. These are the main reasons why so many people are obese, apart from the poor food they eat at home.

Even cows, chickens and other animals are force feed with chemicals that will make them grow faster and fatter and this is no good. For when we put a steak and vegetables on the table we are ingesting these chemicals and it is not doing us any good.

Walking down the street you see obese people left and right, and this is worse in Britain than anywhere else, except perhaps the United States. In a few years time the hospitals are going to be overcrowded with people seeking medical help with their obesity.

It is a fact that obese people will suffer greatly from sickness including, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and certain types such as breast and colon cancer. There is no way these people will live to a ripe old age as the present old age pensioners do. This will overload the NHS in Britain to such an extent that it will run out of money very quickly. In the end the whole NHS will collapse in on itself.

If people are to live to a ripe old age things have to change, and that means the way we eat will have to change rapidly. We cannot go on the way we are for this will lead to a catastrophe.

Manchester Terror Attack

Posted in Afghanistan, America, Britain, European Union, Immigrants, Islamic State, Muslim, News, Teens, United Nations with tags , , , , on 23/05/2017 by floroy1942

499331f6e4796064ac25414f6782bafaEngland has suffered yet another terror attack, this time in Manchester. It took place at a pop concert by Ariana Grande that was attended by thousands of people. Currently we have 22 people and children who have died, and a further 55 injured, but the figure of the dead could rise.

This is yet another terrorist attack by the followers of Islam and in my view it has to stop. Young Muslims are being converted to acts of terror by the ISIS infiltrators in our countries and these people must be tracked down and killed or deported. Also, many Imams in mosques are preaching terrorism,and they too should be arrested and ejected from Europe.

The world has had to put up with this for long enough and it is time for rational action to track them down. The war against ISIS in Syria has gone on long enough, and concerted action must be taken by the United Nations to finally end this conflict. An international force is required to enter all countries and wipe out the terrorists. But still the United Nations sits on its fat backside and does nothing.

In my view, a major effort must be made by all nations to wipe out this terrorist threat, for if we do not it will only get worse. Already hundreds of thousands of people have died since ISIS first rose to power and there is no end in sight. How many more people must die to satisfy the bloodlust of ISIS? Also we have the terrorists in places like Nigeria who are causing a lot of deaths.

The Taliban in Afghanistan are also a major threat to world peace, for they are still fighting with the one aim of taking over the whole country. During their last period in power they gave a home to Al Qaeda and it is for sure that if they take over the country again they will do the same for ISIS.

ISIS terrorists have infiltrated most countries of the world, many posing as refugees, especially in Europe. Who knows how many thousands of terrorists have come to Europe with one aim, to sow terror and death among the population.

The sad thing is, most governments are sitting on their hands and not taking sufficient measures to identify these people and remove them. How long must the general public put up with this? If no concerted action is taken by the authorities this will go on and on, and maybe in ten or twenty years they will take over all European countries. If that happens you can bet your life that America will be next. Their one aim is to make the world a Muslim world.

This will never happen, but it does not rule out that at some time in the future we will see bloody action on the streets of many countries. Although ISIS have almost been driven out of Syria it is certain that many will come to Europe to carry on the fight. Terrorist attacks in Europe are at the moment few and far between, but when they are driven out of Syria more ISIS terrorists will make the crossing of the Mediterranean Sea to Europe. When this happens you can bet your life that the number of attacks will increase drastically.

These people are driven by an ideology that says they are destined to rule the world, and their one aim is to make the whole world Muslim. This is the reason why the governments of the world must take a stand against these people and make them realize that it will never happen.

At the moment the governments of all countries are doing nothing to make this clear to the Muslims, and so the terror goes on. How it will end is anyone’s guess!

I Just Can’t Believe This – Boy’s In Skirts?

Posted in America, Britain, Children, English Schools, Gays, Homosexuals, Modern World, News, Parenting, Teens with tags , , , , on 15/05/2017 by floroy1942

Boys In Skirts?

Can you imagine boys going to school in skirts? It would appear that this is the latest new trend in North London’s Highgate Private School! Its all about being ‘gender neutral’, and the school authorities have initiated the idea of allowing boys to wear skirts to school if they so desire.

Girls can already wear a grey pleated skirt or trousers but the boys are restricted to wearing trousers and have to wait until they are sixteen before even adorning themselves with earrings.

Adam Pettitt, headmaster at the school said, “This generation is really questioning [if we are] being binary in the way we look at things. He said some former pupils had complained about the changes. “They write in and say if you left children to their own devices they would grow up differently and you are promoting the wrong ideas,”

Well, I certainly agree with that for allowing boys to wear skirts would ensure they grow up to be homosexuals.

The school already allows children to request that staff address them by a name of the opposite gender, which around half a dozen have done. One boy has also been allowed to wear a dress to school. Can you imagine a boy wearing a dress to school? It is too ridiculous for words!

Its about time this gender idea was knocked on the head, for in my time boys never got the idea that they were feminine. The LGBT crowd have been given far too much freedom these days and pretty soon the world will be filled with them. As you can imagine from this blog, I don’t like homosexuals and lesbians etc. I remember well when I was in Amsterdam seeing men strolling around holding hands and often kissing on the streets. It was disgusting.

I well remember when I went to a friend’s wedding in Biarritz in France. A gang of us went out after the wedding on the town, and late at night we ended up in a ‘gay’ bar. When we went inside we saw men kissing and fondling each other like crazy. It was disgusting to say the least. I kept my backside against the wall for the whole time we were in there.

There are many people these days who accept readily the idea of ‘gays’ but I am afraid I do not. Many people turn up at ‘gay parades’ to watch men dancing around practically naked, in fact some of them are naked.

I have to say that the world is going crazy these days and I am glad I am old, for I do not wish to live in a society that is flooded with these strange men and women.

Laugh For Free

Posted in America, Britain, British Humour, Canada, England, Europe, News, Teens, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 13/02/2017 by floroy1942

A little girl goes to the barber shop with her father. She stands next to the barber chair, while her dad gets his hair cut, eating a snack cake The barber says to her,  ‘Sweetheart, you’re gonna get hair on your muffin..’ She replies, ‘Yes, I know, and I’m gonna get boobs too.’

A Police Officer was patrolling late at night off the main highway.  At nearly midnight, he sees a couple in a car, in Lovers’ Lane, with the interior light brightly glowing. He carefully approaches the car to get a closer look. Then he sees a young man behind the wheel, reading a computer magazine. He immediately notices a young woman in the rear seat, filing her fingernails.  Puzzled by this surprising situation, the Officer walks to the car and gently raps on the driver’s window. The young man lowers his window. “Uh, yes, Officer?” The trooper asks: “What are you doing?” The young man says: “Well, Officer, I’m reading a magazine.” Pointing towards the young woman in the back seat the Officer says: “And, her, what is she doing?” The young man shrugs: “Sir, I believe she’s filing her fingernails.” Now, the trooper is totally confused. A young couple, alone, in a car, at night in Lover’s Lane and nothing obscene is happening! The trooper asks: “What’s your age, young man?” The young man says: “I’m 22, sir.” The trooper asks: “And her, what’s her age?” The young man looks at his watch and replies: “She’ll be 18 in 11 minutes.”

A very sad day today. After seven years of medical training and hard work, a very good friend of mine has been struck off after one minor indiscretion. He slept with one of his patients and can now no longer work in the profession. What a waste of time, effort, training and money. A genuinely nice guy and a brilliant undertaker.

An exasperated mother, whose son was always getting into mischief, finally asked him ‘How do you expect to get into Heaven?’ The boy thought it over and said, ‘Well, I’ll run in and out and in and out and keep slamming the door until St. Peter says, ‘For Heaven’s sake, Dylan, come in or stay out!”

In the Pub the other day I was telling that old joke about what do you do if you see an epileptic having a fit in the bath? Answer: Throw in your washing…. We were all having a good laugh about this when this big bastard tapped me on the shoulder and said. “I don’t find that very funny. My brother was an epileptic and he died in the bath during one of his fits”. I said. “Sorry mate. Did he drown?” “No” he said, “He choked on a sock.”

When asked by a young patrol officer, “Do you know you were speeding?” This 83-year-old woman gave the young officer an ear to ear smile and stated:- “Yes, but …. I had to get there before I forgot where I was going.” The officer put his ticket book away and bid her good day. Makes perfectly good sense to me!!

When I was six months pregnant with my third child, my three-year old came into the room when I was just getting ready to get into the shower. She said, ‘Mummy, you are getting fat!’ I replied, ‘Yes, honey, remember Mummy has a baby growing in her tummy.’ ‘I know,’ she replied, but what’s growing in your bum?’

A Spanish language teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine. “House” for instance, is feminine:     “la casa.” “Pencil,” however, is masculine:       “el lapiz.”

A student asked, “What gender is ‘Computer’?”  Instead of giving the answer, the teacher divided the class into two groups, Male and Female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether “Computer” should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation. The men’s group decided that  “Computer” should definitely be of the feminine gender (“la computadora”),  because: 1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic; 2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else; 3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and 4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck to buy accessories for it.  

The women’s group, however,  concluded that computers should be masculine (“el computador”),  because: 1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;  2. They have a lot of data but still can’t think for themselves; 3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and 4. As soon as you commit to one, you realise that if you had waited a little longer, you could have got a better model. The women won.

‘Til next time.

Killed Someone Because Of Your ‘Mobile’?

Posted in America, Britain, Canada, England, European Union, Mobile Phone, News, Police, Teens, Traffic with tags , , , , on 01/01/2017 by floroy1942
Texting While Driving - Sheer Madness!

Texting While Driving – Sheer Madness!

These days people are addicted to their mobile phones. How often do you get someone who bumps into you in a shopping centre or on the street because their whole attention is on texting on their mobile? I see it almost daily, and the majority are young people. Drivers in town or on the motorway can often be seen on their mobile while driving, and it causes many accidents and deaths because their whole attention is not on the road.

In Britain alone more than 17,000 people were taken to court last year for using their mobile while driving, and that is only a fraction of those that do it. The number of accidents, and deaths on the roads has skyrocketed since the introduction of mobile phones. So what do we do about it?

I’m of the firm opinion that legislation should be introduced that prevents the use of mobiles while driving. There have been various attempts by governments to limit this situation, notably in California USA with fines, but are they enough? The British Department for Transport is pushing for all mobiles to be blocked when a vehicles engine is switched on. I think this is a good idea which could well save many lives.

I am sure that if someone needs to make a call they should pull over and turn off the engine so the phone will work again. Once the call has been made they can continue.

There is however one problem that must be overcome, and that is the use of navigation systems that are on many mobiles. I am sure however that this problem could be solved. The most important thing is to prevent incoming calls and using the phone to make a call.

It would not be difficult with today’s technology to have a small item installed in the car that will prevent incoming and outgoing calls, text messages and data. I believe the sooner these methods are installed the better it will be for road safety. It must be law that your car or truck have one of these items installed, with very severe penalties for those who do not.

The introduction of such a device on new cars would be no problem, but those already on the road must have it installed within a certain time limit. Those who do not abide by this rule must either receive a heavy fine or have their car taken away from them.

Road deaths have increased tremendously since the introduction of the mobile phone and it is easy to say that such measures are somewhat authoritarian, but just imagine how many lives would be saved. I am sure those people who have lost family members due to such an incident would agree.

When you drive it is essential to have your full attention on the road ahead of you.

Demonstration Mania

Violent Demonstrations Against Trump In America

Violent Demonstrations Against Trump In America

What is it with people these days that they always want to demonstrate on the streets, smash shop windows and burn cars? Almost all demonstrations eventually turn out to be violent even though they start peacefully. I think it is because of teenagers and young men who create mayhem wherever they go because they enjoy it. The main reason for this is because their parents and schools have not taught them respect for others and their views.

Sadly, it indicates a change in mentality among the youth these days from when I was young, for we got our kicks from playing football on the streets or other innocent games, but now violence is the key word. But that is not the main reason why we have demonstrations today.

In many countries it is through dissatisfaction with the government because they seem incapable of running a country the way people want. Other times it is because they do not agree with the majority view, as in the Brexit campaign in Britain. Although the majority of people voted for Brexit, those who voted to stay in the European Union could not accept this and began demonstrating, sometimes violently, on the streets.

In America the same thing happened with the presidential election because Donald Trump won. Now the streets are full of violent demonstrations against him. No-one seems to be patient and willing to wait and see what sort of president he will be. He may be the best thing that has happened to America in generations, on the other hand he could be the worst, but people have decided not give him a chance.

When I was a young man the people were always willing to see what the next Prime Minister would do for the country. Some were good and some were bad, but you only ever found that out in time.

It is not only America and Great Britain where violent demonstrations take place, it is in the majority of countries all over the world from Hong Kong to New York. As people get more and more violent you can be sure this will mean a very difficult future for mankind. We have reached an era where those who lose cannot accept it and want to force change to their way of thinking.

Many will say we are headed for complete anarchy in the world, which will have dire consequences on the future of mankind. If we cannot live in peace with each other then what future does mankind have.

We have to start changing the way in which we educate our children. We have to impress on them that violence is not the way to live their lives, that there are rules by which we live, and violence is not one of them. We have to teach them to respect the views of another even if they do not agree, and not turn to violence. Otherwise, we will all eventually be swallowed by anarchy.

The Pokomon Frenzy

Playing While Driving - You could Kill Someone

Playing While Driving – You Could Kill Someone

I couldn’t believe what I read the other day about a Pokomon player waltzing into a stranger’s house. When questioned by the Police he said he was playing Pokomon and searching for monsters. This is not an isolated case for it has happened before.

There have been nineteen such incidents in Norfolk England alone in the past few weeks. The Police have registered assaults, driving offences, noise nuisance and thefts in July and August alone.

What is it with these fanatics who think they can do as they please just because they are playing a game on their mobile? Have our youth lost all sense of reason over a stupid game?

The Police have arrested people driving erratically while playing the game and it makes me wonder how long it will be before someone gets killed.

Roy.
