America Does Not Like Drug Addicts

I find amusing the American way of handling those from another nation who happen to take advantage of some form of drugs. Personally, I am a drug user, but the drugs I use are classified by our government as “good drugs.” In America one can get high on smoking or drinking alcohol or one of many prescription drugs which allow the bad mood to disappear into the smoke of history. Nigella Lawson is something called a “chef.” Frankly, I have never once watched any program in which demonstrate their ability to cook. A few days ago she attempted to board a plane headed for the United States of America when she was told that my country does NOT allow in any who use drugs. Of course, if you are American born, smoke pot forever. Our Department of Homeland Security wants to keep us secure by not allowing foreigners to enter who smoke pot, I assume the problem is allowing foreign pot smokers to enter might raise the price of pot. Who knows?

The American Embassy in London finally demonstrated that, on occasion, our diplomats DO have some common sense. She was invited to apply for a visa. Actually, she was testifying at a court case and admitted that once she smoked some cocaine when her husband was told he had terminal cancer and another time when she was under great stress.

We now have laws which make legal the smoking of pot, but we have a Homeland Security Department which might contain those who are legally smoking pot deny foreigners the right to smoke what they smoke!!

So Long Piers Morgan

Confession, I actually have never seen the Piers Morgan show, but I have seen him appear on other programs like Bill Maher so, in all honesty, I can say that I have some knowledge of this import from the United Kingdom. He is departing CNN and returning home. Just another limey who did not make it in the American scene. The cause of his demise is rather clear–RATINGS. The limey just tastes sour to the mouths of red blooded American members of the Tea Party and our beloved National Rifle Association. The NRA does not believe an ENGLISHMAN has any right telling we AMERICANS what to think. After all, we beat them in the Revolution and bid them a fair goodbye. This FOREIGNER thinks he has the right to urge taking away our gun rights! Go back to England and life safely is all I can say.

If you want to live in America, you have to get ready to become a sheriff at high noon. We don’t take to FOREIGNERS telling us “I just want Americans to stay alive.” We are AMERICANS, and we have the right to kill one another-it’s all in the fight for freedom. Go Home. Depart and leave us to our killing ways!

Bully Russian Bullies

Vladimir Putin is having an enjoyable week playing the hero of the hour to Russians. Oh, so many feel good and proud to be a Russian. They want once again to frighten the world with the prospect of nuclear disaster in which millions die. I hate to inform them, but if their nut case leader pursues the path of violence and invasion, there is always A possibility of unintended consequences. Secretary of Defense Hagel said he was informed by Russian military authorities they would not invade eastern Ukraine, but thousands of Russian troops are on maneuvers along the border. Vladimir Putin got “permission”from his stooges in Parliament to send troops into eastern Ukraine in order to protect Russians who are being abused and deprived of their rights.

So,what can be done?

1. Dispatch unarmed police from every European Union nation to assist local police in eastern Ukraine.

2. Announce that America will provide all energy needs currently being provided by Russia to European Union members.

3. Inform Russia that any invasion of Ukraine would result in cancellation of all trade with their country.

A Simple Spy Story

We inhabit a world in which the forces of secrecy control information concerning our every day lives. We inhabit a world in which spy agencies constantly are invading our personal life in order to carry out allegedly important acts related to the every ominous, “security of the nation.” The spy agency alone decides what constitutes an issue of “national security” and whether or not anyone, and they mean, anyone has the right to know what they know. Professor Fransis Grosjean of the University of Neuchatel in Switzerland has been engaged for years in seeking information about his mother and father. His father was a French pilot who escaped the Germans and flew to France in 1940. He was asked by M15 to work for them. A German spy in England contacted the pilot and asked him to work for Germany. Professor Grosjean now believes his mother, who was then married to another man, divorced the man at the request of M15 and married his father. In other words, the professor and his sister were products of an M15 operation. His mother married his father in order to keep watch on his activities. After the war ended, she divorced him.

A simple request in 2004 to M15 about an event that occurred in 1941 met with the response from the spy agency, “any record we might have would be unlikely to be released in the foreseeable future.” They cited national security. All the professor wants to know is whether or not his mom worked for M15 and spied on his dad. According to M15: “it is longstanding policy not to confirm nor deny whether an individual was ever an agent.” I assume on grounds of national security.

Mother Russia Wants To Protect Her Children

I must confess not being able to understand why the American government or the European Union does not agree that Mother Russia has a responsibility to take care of her flock of children. Our dear and beloved leader, Vladimir Putin, was forced to abandon his work with disabled people who were attempting to hold an Olympic Winter event and rush off to protect his fellow Russians who reside in the country of Ukraine or at his naval base in the Çrimea. Vladimir is simply a devoted son who cares for his fellow brothers and sisters who reside in the Fascist state of Ukraine and fear for their lives. Not only is Vladimir concerned, but about 20,000 Russian youth have rushed from their homes and sped to the Crimea without even waiting for orders from President Putin to make this effort. They also want to protect Russian people who are threatened by the Fascists in the Ukraine.

What else could Putin do but mobilize his armed forces on the border of Ukraine after learning that the Ukraine has accepted 50,000 volunteers to threaten his 120,000 men on the border with their tanks and artillery and air force? And, what does the West do? THEY threaten the peaceful people of Mother Russia with violence. God Bless Vladimir Putin for saving his fellow Russian citizens in the Ukraine and God Bless this man of peace!

Pray It’s A Boy!

The British newspaper, Independent, recently carried a series dealing with a rather unusual issue pertaining to abortion. The story claimed that it was common among certain ethnic groups in Great Britain to have an abortion if ultra sound indicated the foetus was that of a girl. The British Pregnancy Agency denounced the article as false claiming that sex never was an issue in relation to abortions. Obviously, there is not a survey that can offer absolute evidence that sex plays a role in abortion. However, we have Chinese statistics which clearly prove that more male than female babies are born-statistically impossible. There are similar numbers in India where among many it is common to abort a female foetus if the family wants a male heir.

The Independent interviewed a woman named, Samira, who was born in England of Pakistani heritage. She made clear that her husband wanted an abortion once they discovered she was pregnant with a female child. “I think about running away with her and have the baby elsewhere, but the thing is I can’t leave my children with him. I have my duty to my other children.”

This is anecdotal evidence, but is it true about the story for many women?

From 1914 To 2014

We are gradually working our way to the anniversary of the beginning of World War I back in 1914. The actual conflict began when the son of the Emperor of Austria Hungary was murdered by a young man named, Princip who believed the Slavic people were being persecuted and had to stand up for their rights. The actual scenario resulting in war took about eight weeks to unfold as nations warned one another about getting their armies ready for war. No one actually believed the road being taken was the road to war since diplomats were talking with one another and the thought that the end result would be war appeared too crazy to even consider. British Foreign Secretary William Hague warned the Russian government it had to end the attempt to make the Crimea part of Russia. Even as he spoke, thousands of Russians were cheering in the streets about the need to aid their Slavic brothers in the Crimea against oppression by Western Fascists. Most probably the Russian people support actions by their president.

Putin feels powerful sending troops into the Crimea knowing he has control over atomic weapons of destruction and he just wants to dare the West to oppose him. He also has control over oil and gas supplies that are needed by Western European nations. In the summer of 1914, the Russian government did not believe Germany would actually go to war over someone getting shot. The road to war just seemed to get shorter and shorter as nations threatened the use of force. William Hague warned of “the real danger of a shooting conflict.”

Is this a repeat scenario??

Murdoch Folk Feel Sorry??

There are those who work for Rupert Murdoch and thus enjoy certain rights not allowed to ordinary folk of the media. His one time protege, Rebekah Brooks is on trial for a variety of actions ranging from supporting phone hacking to paying off members of the government for their assistance to her newspapers. She is charged by the government for giving illegal payments to government officials. She was asked by HER lawyer if this charge was valid? “Yes, since I was deputy editor of the Sun and on a handful of occasions” such payments were made. Earlier she had argued, “there had been an overwhelming public interest to justify payment “but only in a very narrow circumstances.” Let me get this clear; if there is “public interest” in something then a newspaper has the right to do whatever it desires to get the story.

OH, Rebekah did admit to being sorry for the publication of certain stories which she now admits were “cruel and harsh.” For example, after Labor Minister Clare Short complained about pictures of topless models, Rebekah had a picture found of a bare breasted Ms. Shorty with the caption noting that Ms. Short was jealous of the models.

To work for Rupert Murdoch is to enjoy rights denied to ordinary members of the media. Just remember, to always say that you are “sorry.”

Rebekah Of Newsworld Farm

Rebekah Brooks was among the most powerful women in the western world when she ran the Rupert Murdoch News of the World and went about writing stories concerning the lives of people who did not get along with the Great Rupert. A couple of years ago, a young English girl, Milly Powler, went missing and Neville Thurlbeck, editor of the paper told a reporter, Glenn Mulcaire to tap into the girl’s cell phone. The News of the World hired him as their specialist in phone hacking. You know, there are sport writers and fashion writers on most newspapers, but in the Murdoch empire they have phone hacking writers who simply dip into your email account and listen and tape. The paper had a front page story about the girl and Ms.Brooks insists that she never saw the story since she waited until much later in the day to check what her newspaper was printing.

According to Ms. Brooks she has no knowledge of phone hacking, she has no knowledge of what her reporters did in order to get a story. She just ran the newspaper and, in that capacity she did not know what the heck was going on. Yes, her reporter quoted from the girl’s phone, but how was she to ask the question where he got this information? Is the British government now demanding that if you run a newspaper, then you are responsible for what is written in the newspaper?

Brave Scotland??

Many recall the Mel Gibson film, “Braveheart” in which courageous men of Scotland fought against the evil men of England. Today, there is a political party in Scotland which seeks to leave beloved England and become an independent nation. Jose Manuel Barros, President of the European Commission offered some words of advice to those seeking to leave one country and become a new country. “In case there is a new country coming out of a current member state, it will have to apply–this is very important–the application and accession to the European Union would have to be approved by ALL member states.”

Just remember that many European Union nations have groups within their boundaries that would like to leave. As Barros emphasized to the Scots, “It will be extremely difficult to get approval of all other member states to have a new member come from an member state.”

No membership in European Union would be a disaster for an independent Scotland. Stay with the Brits.
