May I have an opinion?

Asking a question today – Why are ‘woke’ people so determined to ‘silence’ the great majority? Let me explain that in some more detail. I am referring to the famous and now ‘infamous’ author JK Rowling. You must excuse me but wasn’t she right in saying that only women menstruate? She might not have said that in those exact words but she was unmistakable in what she said. Now, forgive me but I have never seen or heard of a man doing exactly that? Unless we dig some fossils up that would suggest otherwise? Or we discover some African or lost Amazonian tribe where we are astounded to discover that menstruation was across the board. Lovely, how diverse nature can be without operations!.

The point about all of this is – Why do we listen to this kind of piffle? Even worse, take action? How many now have had to resign their position, or lost their job and livelihood because a vocal woke minority were screaming their heads off? Are we not entitled to have an opinion any more? I do respect people just the same even if they hold opposite views to mine! I think the problem is that gender boundaries, in fact all boundaries of almost anything else have been blurred. It was not particularly helpful for ‘luvvies’ like the stars of the Harry Potter films to come out with the drivel reported in great detail by the newspapers. Either the reports were wrong or hyped up or the stars did not have a clue what they were talking about. I think it was probably the latter. It is pretty well known that the mental capacity of most celebrities is less than 25 on the IQ scale. Most of their thinking seems to be centred on the nether regions if you know what I mean.

It is high time to enforce the right to free speech. We are entitled to our views and should be able to express these.

Statistics and nothing but statistics...

And so we are going back to normal. Whatever normal is. Apparently humanity cannot wait to get sloshed as fast as possible. Be it visiting a pub in England (Wales is still dry) or taking a flight to the shagging beaches of Spain. It’s all the same I suppose except the sun burns a happy 40 degrees Celsius in Spain whilst in Blighty we swelter with 10 degrees and a storm or two. Copious rain to boot. Happy days!

There is a story to tell here and for those listening they can see and hear the thunder and lightning on the horizon. You might have thought the various governments would have taken the opportunity to have a serious look at how society has to be if we are serious about curtailing humanity’s gaseous outpourings. I am not talking about bodily emanations, no indeed! We are talking billions of tons of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxides amongst others. Talking about bodily emanations we should not forget those made by our cattle! There are now nearly 8 billion!  Graph from Wikipedia. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_population)

You should ask this – can we actually support so many humans? We tend to not think about that in the western world as we in the main eat more than we should and have a home to go to. That is not true in a lot of other places. India or rather Asia has plenty of problems, the favelas in Brazil are another show of poverty and deprivation. Even here in the UK we have to struggle with deprivation, homelessness and poverty! I suppose it is not much different in other European countries , the US being the so-called richest nation on Earth has plenty to worry about as well.

Looking at the graph you will note that all these pressures are not that old. The graph really takes off at around the end of WW2. The type of graph worries me, I studied some elementary Statistics and in that you learn about Normal Distribution.

And the graph shows the beginning. These graphs go to the top and then tall off in the shape of a bell.

This means there will be a point at which the population number can no longer be supported and will start to decline. This decline might be rapid through starvation and diseases. Bearing in mind that the upward curve will bottom out probably before 2100 by 2150 there will be only a remnant left. Rest assured this process is natural, it cannot be stopped unless you change the reasons why the curve is going upward. That simply means adjusting lifestyles to levels that will not change the composition of the atmosphere, proper land-use and prohibiting the petrol/diesel combustion engine, including aviation engines. It is a sobering thought but there is still time and things like gas pollution can be improved quickly as this coronavirus period has shown through less car driving and virtually no aircraft flying. There it is, the choice is ours. It literally is let live or let die.

Jesus too white? Could be....says Archbishop

I do read the Sun newspaper, call me a plonker. Perhaps I am but the paper is mostly quite fun to read. Most of it is for the nations’ dumbos like me but there are bits of seriousness. This Saturday in an interesting snippet the Archbishop of Canterbury thinks Jesus’ image should be reconsidered. Yes, he feels he is too white. No, really? You know this is just the sort of thing we have wanted the Church of England’s supremo to say. It is absolutely brilliant. Just the job. That’s what we need right now. Jesus is too white. I think the Arch might need a few more things that are important, was St Peter really a fisherman? Was St Paul actually a re-incarnation of the too white Jesus? Questions I think that need solving forthwith and the Church’s Synod should be discussing these things for the next five years at least.

And then we read this...

Jeremy Clarkson’s ‘Mrs T wouldn’t be ill with Covid-19’ hits the spot. It is about dithering by politicians. Now, you might not like Mrs Thatcher, in fact only the likes of the rabid left wanted to keel-haul her but personally I agree with Jeremy. Forgive me the pun but the lady had balls! Something which some present day politicians need looking at. Perhaps a quick visit to the hospital might solve the case. She wouldn’t have been phased by Covid. No, sir! Stand up and send in the marines, that was her motto. Never mind the bed-wetters, smack a few heads together, show ‘m who is boss.

Lastly Lorraine Kelly wrote on the selfish trash who spoiled our beauty spots. Something I have mentioned in a previous post as well. Indeed I have to apologise for just mentioning those appalling young people who left tons of rubbish on one of the prettiest beach in all of England. I left out the hundreds if not thousands of old fools who joined in and had no second thoughts at all in leaving behind used condoms, tampons, BBQs and left over food scraps just to name a few items.

As Lorraine said, these are the people who were clapping the NHS, who say they care about the planet, who demonstrate their ‘social awareness’ by throwing statues they don’t like into the water or daub stupid slogans on Winston’s statue. Well, it probably shows how far we have moved since we separated from the monkeys. Probably not very much. Let’s stop pretending we are important. But most of all, clean up our act.

It's all a load of rubbish...

Great news we see on the television today. Mass brawls on the beaches. Yes, even in Wales. Ogmore by Sea, basically a beach without services (good!) did see a mass brawl by mainly young persons. Why? Only God knows, drink and drugs probably. There goes a shiver down my spine when I think these idiots are going to rule the country in 5 or 10 years time. Maybe that answers some present politicians and their quality as well. Tons of rubbish left and frankly I do believe that young people despite what they say publicly have no regard at all for the environment. Because if you did you would not leave such massive amounts of crap for others to clean up. They pontificate about the fouling of the oceans with plastic but leave tons of it on the beach of which quite a lot will be ending up into the sea. All that matters is to gulp down alcohol as fast as possible and smoke the marijuana cultivated in the cellars of the slums they live in. Anyone looking forward ten years to colonise Mars is wasting their time. We probably will end up using Mars as a convenient rubbish dump. I just love reading stories about mining the asteroid belt, who are they kidding? If you have studied psychology or even psychiatry you will know that we have allowed our society to develop a type of human being who has no regard for anything because they feel short-changed by society.  But whatever or however we look at it, the future does not look rosy. If educated aliens who are thousands of years ahead in knowledge came to our planet, they would probably just see as easy food. Yum Yum, I hope I am tasty enough.

All life matters? Of course it does...

Reading and listening to the various reports on TV, the virus, a plane flying over the soccer stadium in Burnley and a host of others you might be forgiven thinking you lived on an alien planet. ‘Black lives matter’ being prevalent at the moment, but shouldn’t that really be ALL lives matter? All life is precious. Animal life, human life, everything. Us humans have a real responsibility to see to it that we are NOT pressurising other life, human or otherwise. That means, in my opinion, we have to tackle present day slavery, tackle inequality but also tackle living space and conditions for animal life. To that effect we need to curb human activity. Now, what that would entail might not be popular. Less flying aeroplanes, less car driving, less producing useless goods. Less urban expansion, better use of land. Tree planting, diverse tree planting, no uniform spruce or larch plantations. Better and clean electricity generating methods, meaning sea based power generating projects. Wind, lagoon for instance. I realize that whatever needs to be produced such as wind turbines, there will be an adverse impact. Metals needs smelting, concrete bases, limestone quarrying, plastics etcetera. But if we do not start thinking and acting the outlook for the planet as a whole is not good. I think us humans need to alter our whole outlook on life. As a matter of fact in the whole scheme of things we are NOT important! But we are important for the fact we CAN do something to alter conditions for all life on this planet. Whether that will be a positive or a negative, well it really depends on brainpower. Thinking and coming to the right conclusions and actions. Let’s hope the likes of Mr Trump, Putin et al are listening, sitting down and thinking ‘Why does the sun get up every morning’?

What next Boris? Dither some more?

Boris, Boris, Boris, yes Boris the PM. Please my man stop listening to those ill informed specialists. Especially when they have a left-bias and most have! The trouble with Boris is that he doesn’t seem to be his ebullient self at the moment. He dithers. One minute he says schools are back, next minute they are not because the unions didn’t like it. Who cares a toss about unions right now? The TUC supremo, I cannot remember her name, has only been seen once on TV and besides smiling didn’t say much. Just wondering if she disappeared to her summer house in the wilds of Scotland? That other chief, of Unite seems more talkative, well at least he manages to get his point over. One thing that Boris likes is a barbecue, we can now have one. Carry on with the holiday Boris, just look now and again at the sharply rising national debt. Anyone thought yet at how this is going to be paid? Well, National Insurance for businesses will be cut but most likely upped for every worker. That alone is interesting because we may look at 5,000,000 unemployed. Boris, Boris stop listening and for once act! You promised much but so far have done little. Yes, the virus has scuppered a lot of action that otherwise would have happened. Stop listening to the opposition, stop arguing with that failed MI5 guy or was it MI6, who cares. Act, we might not like it, we probably will hate you but we pay you to make the unpopular popular. If you want yourself and the Conservatives to be in government after the next general election, start acting now!

Some hard truths?

Sometimes newspapers carry funny bits of information. According to Rod Liddle my fav journo, scientists in Japan are predicting that within 20 years or so, we will be communicating with animals. That’s useful. I can ask the cat, do you love me? Answer – ‘Love YOU? What the f…, I don’t even like you. You are a dweeb, put out my food on time, you plonker and get off the settee, it’s mine’! Some slightly altered sentence from Rod.

There will be some very interesting discussions, I’m sure. Or words to that effect. Anyway, it might be fun, if it’s true and are bothered to spend money and time on such research. But then the Japanese? My cat doesn’t speak Japanese, but likes sushi though. So, it might work. ‘Here kitty, kitty, how about some hara-kiri, sorry sushi’?

Joking apart though, has anyone ever thought why this Covid-19 has been so rampant? I was watching a programme on the Freesat Channel called Abandoned Engineering, it was showing some very large abandoned buildings in Germany. Buildings that were built in the late 1800’s. Solitary palaces set in woodland. It was amazing to learn that these were a type of hospitals. One disease that was so rampant was tuberculosis. There was no antidote, no vaccination. It killed 80% of those who caught it. Any reverberations in our brains yet? I picked up quickly it was the amount of people that had moved into the conurbations. Berlin in particular. So, yet again, it is the closeness, the squalor, the unhygienic situations that had allowed a serious disease to spread. It is the same every time. Today coronavirus spreads so easily because of the number of people travelling God knows where, all across the globe. We are now popping over to New York for a meeting, for Pete’s sake. And we are still unhygienic! Look at some public toilets, in aircraft, trains (if you can find one), or buses. Look at the rubbish thrown away, some just on the roads. Does everyone brush their teeth? Ask your dentist (if you can find one). Washing hands is just too much work for some...

The truth is just us humans who are guilty of bringing these diseases to all. Through fouling our living space, the earth, the seas and oceans, the very air we breathe. To congregating in thousands, even millions, time after time. I have mentioned before, human numbers have reached a plateau. But worse, humans now are moving towards areas of the world where the climate is still within comfortable range. So Europe will have to accommodate millions within the next 30 to 50 years. You can see this behaviour now, by the number that just want to reach the UK. So, no easy answers but I do think we need a type of politician, even all politicians, who are not afraid taking hard, sometimes unpopular decisions. We need people who can see clearly that we need good, sound policies to plan for a land that can support its citizens AND all that lives there. Nature should be uppermost in everything.

We need to forget what WE want, we need to remember what the world we depend on wants and needs.
