Everywhere except Europe is in a mess! Once the world was a peaceful place, and today it is a controversy of war and demonstrations. There are battles going over the whole world and we must put a stop to it. In South America there are demonstrations in most countries and they are not giving up. In the Middle East and the Far East there are battles raging with the government. Muslims are trying to get a hold of country after country while the Army fights against them.

The United Nations should do something about it and stop the fighting once and for all. When will the world return to peace? In the Far East there are Muslims fighting to get hold of a country and this is not going well. The same is going on the Middle East and they will not win.

The United Nations are sitting on their backsides and doing nothing except giving out rhetoric. They should call for nations to be active in forming an Army and wipe these terrorists. The whole world is in turmoil and this cannot happen in this modern day and age. We cannot sustain this as the terrorists gain a hold in many places and torture and put in prison those who are against them. We have to do something to stop these wars going on and the only solution is the United Nations. But they sit on their backsides and do nothing.

We the people must do something to wake them up and get them to stop these wars raging across the planet. For if we do not then the people will see the end of this civilisation. It time for the whole world to back the U.N. and to get them fighting these terrorists. It is the only way we can beat these terrorists.

Another thing is trying to save the planet. We are polluting the atmosphere like nobody’s business, and we will all die if the situation gets worse. Our seas are filling up with plastic bottles, our atmosphere is getting worse with the pollution from chemical plants, factories and cars. We have a long way to go before we can clean up the planet.

Electric cars will make a difference if everybody buys one, but that will not solve the plastic waste in the oceans, as everybody leaves their plastic bottles on the beaches which will wash out to sea and the pollute the oceans. We need to get a grip on these plastic bottles and ban them altogether. Whales and fish swallow these plastic bottles and then we can see the end of fishing.

This will affect so many manufactures across the whole world, but something must be done about it. I saw on TV news that hundreds and thousands of plastic bottles washed up on beaches and they won’t go away. Most companies are gathering these bottles for use again, but that will not solve the problem. We have to get rid of these plastic bottles for good.

The world is in mess and we have to do something about it. I am 75 and will not live long enough to watch the world go down the drain. We have to make big plans to get the world back on its feet. Otherwise this world will end and become a planet without humans.

Brexit

What is happening with Brexit? We are groping towards a showdown with the European Union and we do not seem to be getting any closer. Theresa May should be putting a hard fist down on Brexit but she is not doing that. We have to call an E.U. Council meeting and discuss the plans for our separation from Europe. In response we are dilly-dallying on the subject and we are not moving forward.

Theresa May seems to be going at it the wrong way, and we should force our intentions on the European Council. This has been going on long enough, and we are no closer to reaching an agreement. When an agreement is reached, and that could take a long time, we will be free of the E.U. and be able to join forces with other countries. We will have free trade with other countries, and that should have a significant advantage.

Free trade with America and Canada, Australia and many other countries. We will not be paying any high rates of taxes to E.U. and that should leave us a rich country in a few years time.

The World In Crisis

Posted in America, Britain, China, Environment, Government, Insanity, News, North Korea, President, Russia with tags , , , , on 13/08/2017 by floroy1942

It has often been said in the past that mankind will end up destroying itself. A bold statement if ever there was one. But with the current crisis with North Korea anything is possible. Kim Jong-Un has said he will fire missiles at the island of Guam in the coming three weeks or so, and if they are nuclear tipped the world will go to war.

President Trump’s statement that he will attack North Korea if that happens could be the prelude to a world nuclear war, for China has already said that if America unleashes nuclear weapons at North Korea they will retaliate. Who knows which side Russia will back if that happens.

Map: Guam in relation to North Korea

Guam has been an American military base since 1898 when they captured it from the Spanish during the Spanish-American war. Since then it has been the only base for Americans in the Far East. Guam is very important for the Americans and has become known as the ‘Tip of the Spear’ for the American armed forces in the Far East.  The remote 210-square mile US territory, about 4,000 miles west of Hawaii in the western Pacific Ocean, is a vital US military outpost and host to strategic bombers and at least 6,000 US service members. It is just 2,200 miles southeast of North Korea and is vulnerable to North Korea attack.

It is rumoured that the North Korea is developing missiles to reach the mainland of America and they are close to achieving this. If this happens we could see all-out war between America and North Korea. This could possibly mean that China jumps on the ‘band-wagon’ against America.

Many American politicians are of the opinion that this will never happen, but with someone like Kim Jong-Un it is dangerous to ignore this. He has total control over his country and has a huge army that could invade South Korea. If this happens we could possibly see Trump unleash nuclear weapons on the north.

There can be little doubt that if this happens, radioactivity will spread around the world and we may well see the end of mankind on this planet.

A Funny Look At 2016

Posted in America, Britain, British Humour, Canada, England, European Union, News, Politics, UK, United Nations with tags , , , , on 02/01/2017 by floroy1942

1Yesterday I went to a Christmas party. I had a few beers, followed by a few Brandy and Cokes and a couple of double shots …I still had the sense to know that I was over the limit. That’s when I decided to do what I have never done before: I took a cab home.
Sure enough, there was a police road block on the way home, and since it was a cab, they waved it past. I arrived safely without incident. This was both a great relief and a surprise because I had never driven a cab before. I don’t even know where I got it from and, now that it is in my garage, I don’t know what to do with it.

2A guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge (still working), he put it in his front yard and hung a  Sign on it saying: Free to good home. You want it, you take it.’ For three days the fridge sat there without anyone looking twice.  He eventually decided that people were too mistrustful of this deal. So he changed the sign to read: ‘Fridge for sale $50.’ The next day someone stole it!

My colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria when we overheard an admin girl talking about the sunburn she got on her weekend drive to the beach. She drove down in a convertible, but said she “didn’t think she’d get sunburned because the car was moving.”

4

I couldn’t find my luggage at the airport baggage area and went to the lost luggage office and reported the loss. The woman there smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional and  said I was in good hands. ‘Now,’ she asked me,  ‘has your plane arrived yet?’…

5

A man was driving when he saw the flash of a traffic camera. He figured that his picture had been taken for exceeding the limit, even though he knew that he was not speeding. Just to be sure, he went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed. Now he began to think that this was quite funny, so he drove even slower as he passed the area again, but the traffic camera again flashed. He tried a fourth time with the same result. He did this a fifth time and was now laughing when the camera flashed as he rolled past, this time at a snail’s pace. Two weeks later, he got five tickets in the mail for driving without a seat belt !!!

6

While working at a pizza parlor I observed a man ordering a small pizza to go. He appeared to be alone and the cook  asked him if he would like it cut into 4 pieces or 6. He thought about it for some time then said “Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don’t think I’m hungry enough to eat 6 pieces.”

7

My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car which is designed to cut through a seat belt if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the car trunk.

While looking at a house, my brother asked the estate agent which direction was north because he didn’t want the sun waking him up every morning. She asked, ‘Does the sun rise in the north?’ My brother explained that the sun rises in the east and has for some time. She shook her head and said, ‘Oh, I don’t keep up with all that stuff……’

Interview with 101 year-old Hattie Mae MacDonald of Feague, Kentucky: Reporter: Can you give us some health tips for reaching the age of 101? Hattie: For better digestion I drink beer. In the case of appetite loss I drink white wine. For low blood pressure I drink Red Wine. In the case of high blood pressure I drink scotch. And when I have a cold I drink Schnapps. Reporter: When do you drink water? Hattie: I’ve never been that sick.

I hope you enjoyed it. Have a happy new year.

Heading For Calamity Through Indifference

Posted in Brazil, Britain, Children, Conservation, Environment, Forests, Health, Nature, News, Oceans with tags , , , , on 04/11/2014 by floroy1942
The Way It Is!

The Way It Is!

It is truly amazing how thick-headed some people can be even when the evidence is all around them. The UN Climate Body has just given its strongest warning yet that the human race is heading for disaster unless we change our ways. The funny thing is, people still scoff at the idea of climate change and all it entails. Here are some public comments on the news item:

“Complete and utter rubbish. Major changes in our climate occurred well before the industrial revolution, and clearly occur without any influence by human activity whatsoever then and do so now. It is unclear whether the human beings have any impact, considering all of the predictions by the highly paid lying climate change scientists have proven to be way off, there is no unbiased scientific thought into this that gets published.”

“We’re already past the so-called ‘tipping point’, thus any changes to our habits would be pointless. A ‘business-as-usual’ approach is recommended by all impartial experts.”

“Lies. lies and even more lies.”

There have of course been these warnings before, but never in the magnitude of this one, which was put together from reports by thousands of scientists across the world and 30,000 scientific papers.

Climate Change Conference 2014Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the IPCC said: “We have the means to limit climate change. The solutions are many and allow for continued economic and human development. All we need is the will to change, which we trust will be motivated by knowledge and an understanding of the science of climate change.”

The experts are telling us that we have to limit the rise in world temperature to just 2C otherwise we can expect major problems in the future like rising temperatures and sea levels, species extinctions, more heat-waves and intense storms, worsening health and poverty, water shortages and damage to food security.

Rajendra Pachauri went on to say, “To keep a good chance of staying below 2C, and at manageable costs, our emissions (carbon) should drop by 40% to 70% globally between 2010 and 2050, falling to zero or below by 2100. We have that opportunity, and the choice is in our hands.”

Ban Ki-Moon U.N. Secretary General

Ban Ki-Moon U.N. Secretary General

UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon, who launched the report said: “Science has spoken, there is no ambiguity in their message. Leaders must act. Time is not on our side.”

Now, I really don’t know about you, but this news makes me fear for not only my children, but their children in the years to come. People have become so self-centred and greedy in the last forty years, they don’t even think about the world our children and future generations will have to live in providing they have what they want.

Bury Your Head In The SandWhen you have lived as long as I have, and seen the changes in the world over the past seventy years, you begin to understand a little of what the scientists are talking about. But young people today, without the experience of age, feel so secure in what they have, and the idea that their life style could be threatening the continued existence of mankind on this planet is to them hogwash. Many today do not have the education or imagination to envisage life on Earth in say 50 or 100 years time as a consequence of what we are doing today.

It is a scientific fact that  mankind produced more CO2 in the last 100 years than at any time in Earth’s history. This excess has formed a blanket in Earth’s upper atmosphere and effectively traps heat that would normally escape into space, turning the world warmer, hence the original term ‘Global Warming’.

CO2As we know, CO2 is absorbed by trees and even the oceans, which convert this gas into oxygen and so there is a cycle that keeps us all alive. But that has changed rapidly since the coming of the industrial age and any fool should recognize that we are saturating the planet in CO2 with all our factories, power stations and cars etc.

Saving One Tree Aint Gonna Do It!

Saving One Tree Aint Gonna Do It!

At the same time we are removing at a steady rate one of the major things that redress this imbalance, and that is trees. Country-sized areas of the world’s tropical forests like the Amazon have disappeared along with much of the forests that abounded in countries all over the world sixty years ago. Its like saying you are under water with a bottle of oxygen to keep you alive, but someone keeps changing the bottle for a smaller size until eventually there is not enough to keep you alive. Tests on trees in some areas have shown that many of them are saturated with CO2 and they cannot absorb any more. As the rain forests get smaller so will the production of life giving oxygen into our atmosphere.

No Ice Melt? Yes There is!

No Ice Melt? Yes There is!

Over the last twenty years or so we have seen dramatic changes in weather patterns across the world. Hurricanes like Katrina in America, massive flooding and droughts in places where such a thing is unthinkable, like the UK, and the disappearance of sea ice at the poles. Just this last two years have seen not gales, but hurricanes and even tornado’s causing significant damage in the United Kingdom. The last few years have also seen unprecedented levels of flooding on a magnitude never seen before. All changes unprecedented in our history, despite what ‘the natural weather cycle’ enthusiasts say.

Every country is pushing to produce more and more electricity to keep up with our ever-increasing appetite for power, which means more power stations to satisfy demand, and yet in every city across the world, huge towering office blocks have all their lights on throughout the night, every night. It may look pretty, but it is a disastrous waste of power.

Spreading Fertilizer

Spreading Fertilizer

On top of all this we in the west are poisoning the ground more and more with artificial fertilizers made of chemicals, and this is seeping into our water supplies. In the desperate drive to produce more and more food, with a view to extra profit, the ground has lost its natural ability to replace nutrients that allow plants to grow, so we have been forced to substitute them.

On a global scale, part of the problem with food is the ever-increasing world population that keeps pushing the boundaries of our ability to produce enough to feed everyone. There can be no doubt that our world is grossly over-populated, but currently there seems to be no way of preventing it rising further. In the future this will be exacerbated by weather changes such as draughts that will make huge areas of land currently used for food production unusable.

Sea Level Rise Sceptics

Sea Level Rise Sceptics

Sea levels are rising as more pole ice melts, not that you would notice that on your local beach, but it is happening all the same. The oceans are becoming more acidic due to man’s contamination, which if it continues, will drastically affect fish stocks. We have been raping the seas for decades with factory ships now removing a hundred times more fish in a single voyage than the fleets of old, and catches show the fish are getting smaller and smaller due to them not being given time to grow properly. As an example, when I was young fish like cod were far bigger than they are now, and the likelihood is that in a few decades there will be few left to catch.

There are many differing views on the validity of scientists claims today, but those of us who have many years under our belts will recognize the changes that have taken place over the past seventy or eighty years, and I for one can say with sincerity that the outlook is not good unless we drastically change our lives and the way we do things. Many today shrug it all off as hocus pocus because they have neither the age experience nor the intelligence to see things as they really are. The hypocrites among us shrug it off because they know it will not effect their lives and that is sad for these people will never change.

Think Of Them

Think Of Them

Despite what you may think of this Climate Report, as a species we have to start changing our ways, otherwise our continued existence on this planet will come to an end. For myself, I think this warning, like all the others will be totally ignored by the majority of governments, though some may pretend to follow its recommendations. If everything happens as predicted by the scientists, there is one thing for sure, I will not be around to say “I told you so”.

The Princess and the Paparazzi

Posted in Britain, England, Europe, Human Rights, Justice, UK, USA with tags , , , , , on 14/09/2012 by floroy1942

Disgraceful!

No, it’s not the title of an up-and-coming blockbuster from Hollywood, but a real life drama that is currently in the news. From reports, it would seem that some enterprising paparazzi photographer managed to get close enough to snap pictures of Princess Kate sunbathing topless in a private retreat while on holiday in France. More damning is that a French magazine called Closer, did not think it wrong to splash the pictures all over the front cover.

Needless to say, this has caused a little more than just a stir in the hallowed halls of Buckingham Palace, and both the Royal Family and officials are up in arms about it. Personally I think this whole episode is reason enough to go to war with the French! No, sorry, just kidding – No really!!

Chateau D’Aulet

Prince William is said to be ‘livid’ at the invasion of privacy and I must admit I agree with him. He is currently taking legal advice on how to proceed against either the magazine, the photographer, or both. In my view he should make an example of these people and hammer them for everything they have. To me it is just intolerable the lengths some of these paparazzi will go to get an ‘exclusive’ photo, and the magazine and paper owners who perpetuate this kind of act by publishing should be put on the rack!

Its long past time when these people need to realize that celebrity or not, you still have a right to private moments. What is going to be the next stop, a photo of Harrison Ford or Angelina Jolie sitting on the toilet?

Hounded to Death By the Paparazzi

We went through this whole saga when Princess Diana was hounded to death  by the paparazzi. Nothing was done then to curb their insatiable appetite for invading people’s privacy, and to be honest, I don’t see much happening now over this latest incident.

It is for this reason that I fervently hope Prince William and  Princess Kate take the magazine, the magazine’s editor, and the photographer to the cleaners. From information to date it does not seem likely that President Hollande or the French government are inclined to do anything and it disgusts me.

In Happier Times

All you ever hear from many people, especially the Press is; ‘Freedom of the Press’! To a certain extent I agree, the Press should not be muzzled on points that affect the people, or a political scandal, but there are limits. They trumpet about the Human Rights of ordinary individuals, but do people like Princess Kate not have the same rights? It seems not!

In years gone by there was always a ‘Code of Ethics’ that governed the Press and it was a code that ensured they did not overstep the boundaries of decency, but in the last few years that has all gone out the window. They do not care for ‘decency’ any more and all they are interested in is what boosts circulation. For me it has gone way too far!

If there is no other way to stop this rot then any paper or magazine that prints such stuff should be shut down immediately – for good. Maybe measures of that nature will once again bring back the hallowed ‘Code of Ethics’ of old.

Roy.

Update 14/9/12

Thankfully, their Royal Highnesses have decided to take legal action against Closer magazine. All I can say is good luck, and make them pay handsomely for their cheek!

Muslim Power!

Posted in Al Quada, Arab, Britain, Christianity, England, Europe, Human Rights, Insanity, Insurgents, Iran, Islamic Revolution, Justice, Modern World, MP's, Muslim, Parliament, Prison, Religion, Taliban, Terrorism, UK, USA with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on 01/10/2010 by floroy1942

Muslim Power is on the march again as a Dutch MP is to go on trial next week for “insulting Muslims”.

Geert Wilders – Dutch Politician

Geert Wilders, Leader of the Freedom Party, who has just entered into an agreement with the Liberal Party and Christian Democratic Alliance to form the first minority government in the Netherlands since WW2, is to stand trial “for inciting hatred, discrimination, and insulting Muslims”. According to sources, if found guilty, he could be sentenced to two years in prison or a €19,000 fine.

The fact that he is now a crucial member of the minority government makes it all the more ridiculous.

Among the measures to be introduced by this parliament (due no doubt to Wilder’s Freedom Party) is the banning of full-face coverings worn by Muslim women (i.e. the Burqa) in all public places in the Netherlands. This is much the same as France has already done.

Wilders – A Marked Man

Wilders has been consistently in the news because of his efforts in trying to wake up the Dutch people to the Islamization of their country, as is all too evident in Great Britain.

It would seem the fear of insulting Muslims has now over-ruled our, until now, sacred ideal of free speech at least in the Netherlands. The danger is that such an action will set a precedent that could spread to other countries, in which case, free speech will eventually be stifled and wither on the vine.

Geert Wilders is most famous for his short video called ‘Fitna’ which swept the western world after its release in March of 2008. In it he quoted verses from the Qur’an (Arabic spelling) to highlight the hatred among Muslims for non-Muslims, and related these facts to the 9/11 atrocities in New York.

The Qu’ran

I have had dialogue with many Muslims on the subject, and all told me the lines are quoted ‘out of context’. You will need to read the Qu’ran for yourselves to decide what you believe in.

Burning Church

Muslims burn bibles, and even churches (Ref: Far Eastern Muslim States like Indonesia etc) and not a word of protest is uttered by christian societies, the church or governments. Anyone found to be practising the christian faith in countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran are immediately condemned to death, but not a voice is raised by these same governments and organisations.

We make more fuss over a Muslim woman accused of adultery and murder sentenced to death by stoning than we do about ‘insults’ to our religion.

At times it must seem that everything we do is an insult to Muslims, in fact listening to the rhetoric that comes from the mouths of some Muslim clerics you could believe our very existence as non-Muslims is an insult to Islam.

Iraq Suicide Bomb

The Qu’ran strictly forbids the killing of Muslims by other Muslims, but that doesn’t seem to have held back the insurgents who detonate explosives strapped to their bodies in crowded market places in Iraq and Afghanistan where the majority of victims are fellow Muslims.

Proposed Muslim Centre for Ground Zero

Geert Wilders has done his best to highlight the creeping Islamisation of western countries like Holland and Britain where Muslims have more rights than the ethnic population. This slow cancer is also being seen in America where Muslims even have the effrontery to want to build a mosque within a stones throw of ‘Ground Zero’ (See Blog entry: Pig Power and Ground Zero 7/9/10), scene of the biggest atrocity so far this century.

The Rights of ethnic Europeans and Americans are being trampled underfoot because no politician has the guts to stand up and say what an ever increasing portion of the public is thinking. In which case I say, thank God for Geert Wilders. He at least is man enough to say what he thinks.

It is a scandal that he should be pilloried by his own country’s legal system and the gutless politicians who run the country. One can only hope he brings down the government if found guilty.

Roy.
