“But. my young friend, what makes us even more suspicious is the fact that you carried not only two cooked ham sandwiches with mayonnaise, but also a crab salad; both rich in unhealthy super-saturated fats and items forbidden under the new Healthy eating regimes!”

Now I couldn’t care less about the Confederate Flag. I am a Yankee, and an a HUGE fan of Sherman’s March to the Sea.
The Democrats believe this is an issue for them, even though it was the Democrats that were pro-slavery, the founders of the KluKluxKlan, and fought tooth and nail against Civil Rights for Black Americans. Well so be it, it’s just another distraction that ain’t gonna save em.
Today however this issue went from stupid to ridiculous. A 70s TV Show that was wholesome fun was banned from the AirWaves not by Law, but by Democrat Pressure. The Show even had a movie not that long ago based on it. The movie made 111Million Worldwide. Not bad for a movie based on a TV show.
Well the show is gone. Why? Because the car has a confederate flag on it…. how stupid can it get?

With virtually all of the mass public shootings in America and Europe taking place where general citizens can’t carry guns for protection, at some point it has to become apparent even to die-hard gun control advocates that gun-free zones only protect the killers.
In the wake of the murders in Charleston, President Obama has made more exaggerations and false claims about gun violence in America. He made two public addresses this past week — one to the nation on Thursday and one to the U.S. Conference of Mayors on Friday. On both occasions, he gave distorted impressions of how rates of violence in America compare with those in the rest of the world.
In his address to the nation, Obama claimed that, “We as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency.”
But Obama overlooks Norway, where Anders Behring Breivik used a gun to kill 67 people and wound 110 others. Still others were killed by bombs that Breivik detonated. Three of the six worst K-12 school shootings ever have occurred in Europe. Germany saw two of these — one in 2002 at Erfurt and another in 2009 at Winnenden. The combined death toll was 34. France and Belgium have both faced multiple terrorist attacks over the past year. After adjusting for America’s much larger population, we see that many European countries actually have higher rates of death in mass public shootings.

I am announcing, with suitable gravity, a brand new Charity, and I am in the process of registering same with the Charity Commissioners.
We shall be raising funds, and aiming, in the first year, at a target of ten million pounds. The aims of this new Charity?
It will be to provide a great many more suitable candidates with suitable reservations to act as this deserving family has already done so!
I predict great things for the new Charity which shall be named, ‘Go Thou, and do likewise‘

On July 20th John Kerry will raise the American Flag over an Embassy in Havana Cuba. According to Obama the policies of the last 54 years have been wrong, so he will change that and do it his way. (just announced)
I am sure that with President Obama’s record of Success this to will work out just fine.

Back to the magnificent Four for another post!
The four UK children’s commissioners have joined forces to urge the Government to halt its programme of benefit cuts to prevent more young people being pushed into poverty. The commissioners for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland said child poverty rates across the UK were “unacceptably high” and that there had been a failure to protect those from the most disadvantaged backgrounds.
These left wing poverty hustlers seem to have overlooked the FACT that the people of the UK have elected a government which has a clear MANDATE to impose further Welfare Cuts. Let’s consider who elected these four children’s commissioners….that’s right ..no one. Quangocrats with leftist agendas seeking to subvert the will of the people.
The truth is that we have no child poverty in the UK. All we have is the fictional invention of relative poverty. (60% of the median income) and that is meaningless. If you want to see REAL poverty, try some african countries where kids eat dirt but spare me the contrived inanities of these four clowns.

How often have you heard our political leaders insist that only a tiny minority of Muslims support the Jihad? Well, I am afraid reality rather confounds this utopian delusion…
THE Islamic State terror group is supported by more than 42million Muslims, a new report has warned. Ryan Mauro of the Clarion Project, which carried out the research, warned that “ISIS is only a fraction of what it could potentially become”.
He said: “If we don’t act quickly, this is still going to grow – and what we’re looking at today is going to look like the good old days compared to the future.” More than 8.5million people view ISIS positively, and around 42million view them somewhat positively, according to the data.

Let’s get it clear. It is WRONG to hurt your child in any way. But smacking them can be the right thing to do and so I find this latest attempt to hijack the role of the parent pretty repulsive.
The UK will be breaking international law unless smacking is completely banned, Britain’s four official children’s commissioners have insisted. In a report submitted to the United Nations, the four commissioners – representing England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – are demanding an “immediate” repeal of all laws allowing parents to deliberately hurt their children. The Government must also teach parents who smack alternative “non-violent forms of child rearing and behaviour management”, they add.
Get that? They are lobbying to gain control over parents so that any parent whose behaviour THEY disapprove of must go through “re-education” As readers know, I have two children, now both grown up. During their formative years, when they behaved badly, they were smacked. This was a very rare event and they were both very well behaved children 99.9% of the time and I am proud of them. However I believe PART of the reason that smacking children in the right circumstances is to ensure that they DO become model citizens. These “Children Commissioners” are an Orwellian creation and they should all be sacked, not smacked.

Well, it has happened. To no-ones great surprise, Greece has become the worlds first “wealthy” country to default on an IMF loan, following in the illustrious footsteps of the likes of Zimbabwe and Cuba. Well done to the EU – you sure know how to bring about transformation!
Greece has missed the deadline for a €1.5bn (£1.1bn) payment to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), hours after eurozone ministers refused to extend its bailout. But the ministers say they will discuss a last-minute request from Greece for a new two-year bailout on Wednesday.
Greece is the first advanced country to fail to repay a loan to the IMF and is now formally in arrears. There are fears that this could put Greece at risk of leaving the euro.
Greece should not look upon leaving the Euro “as a risk” – remaining in it is the risk! Yet the Greek people are mostly sheep who have voted in a Government that simultaneously is pledged to remaining IN the Eurozone whilst refusing to conform to the economic rules of it!
