I am not a Number
I am a human being born in the fifth decade of the last century, born a free person, with no inherited debt. My rights were inherited from my father and mothers generation. They in their time were born free persons into a democratic state called Briton, as was I.
This nation used to pride itself on its stance against slavery, and it’s caring society cared for the elderly (in the family home), the children and the nation was not obsessed with control as civil liberties that are almost eroded by the next six generations of inheritors, the previous generation to mine was the hippy culture and their ideals were all a bit too sickly sweet for the mainstream and a little unworkable given the stance of the establishment of the day.
Police walked the streets and only a few had cars, they knew the people in the area as they lived among us, one of my neighbours was a police sergeant and he knew everyone, his son grew up to become a policeman and he was one of the first to be withdrawn from local residency and secularised to the new policing methods that were coming into practice. Doctors didn’t need appointments and you sat your turn in his (most were men then) waiting room and it was common to ask who was last in the queue so we knew who to follow. Schools actually taught and you could have fun without the strict totalitarian rule of the present day cattle market comprehensives.
The concept that someone could own you was alien, the eggheads of the day stated that mind, body and soul was the definition of being. The nation felt that we all had the right to pursue life, love and happiness and though we didn’t need anyone’s approval or permission (if we weren’t committing a crime) to enjoy our daily pursuits and pleasures. We all still maintained a level of civil behaviour that was a hangover from the post war days our parents had survived.
The whole idea of a democracy was that no-one was any better than anyone else and that we all had the same civil rights, that politeness was a necessity in the daily exchanges between people as people were a little bit more easily offended and reactions could escalate out of hand quite quickly.
My dad used to tell us that if we were wanting to settle a dispute with anyone else (fight) the lesson from his generation for both school level and working level. Was to leave it till the weekend and arrange to meet at a park or secluded place, even just taking it outside was not on, as your job or your education would suffer as a result. My generation was the first to see Kung Fu (King Boxer 1975 the Enter the Dragon) and to see it take over all fighting forms in films, the Quiet Man (John Wayne and Maureen Ohara) had one of the best stand up knock down proper fights with no kicking and gouging in fact no dirty tactics at all in it. The overriding sense of decency was endemic then, socially and culturally reinforced in daily life by mutual consent.
Industry was regulated and banks could never get away with stealing. Governments were held to account by the moral diktats of the times from the upper middle classes to the working man. They had stood shoulder to shoulder during two world wars and this nation had a self belief second to none and an enviable set of standards that people choose to uphold as the underpinning of the pride of a nation.
This generation and the last 5 before as they have come to the helm to take their turn have allowed a lot to slip from our grasps but not from our inalienable rights. The nation still lends its rights to its leaders to act on their behalf and they are being sold out to multinational conglomerates by the back door politicians of the Thatcherite me, me, me generation. But what else do you expect from a so called nation of shop keepers.
This nation has always kept the political process of election of the personal pages as the politicians of the previous generation had a duty to the people, they had all worked and had real life experience there were no career politicians anywhere then. The early days of politics required a secret voting system as disclosure then could result in violence and organised intimidation by certain factions. Those days are long gone now and a more open balloting process is beginning to be needed. The present political powers are giving themselves new powers and pay rises and life styles that would make the politicians that bled for this country and fought with the common man for the civil rights that were the envy of the world.
So when they try to strip the last vestiges of rights from you and hand you over to their corporate masters. Keep these points in mind. When you lend them your rights and agree to play along they can only work in our best interest and cannot ever be used against us. Under the democratic principle that we lend our rights to our ‘elected’ leaders before they can incarcerate you. They for any of their new jumped up laws they bring into being for crowd control and to further strip you of your rights. There are three document that they need to posses for mind body and soul ownership.
The state needs to have a power of attorney, a signed affidavit that states that you are giving away all of your intellectual rights, vocabulary, decision making, disposition, attitude and liberty.
Under the property act of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, they need to produce a bill of sale or a record of ownership with your mum and dad’s signature on the ( slavery is illegal in this country still) slave receipt, stating that you are now crown property and therefore have the right to incarcerate your body when you have not broken any statutory laws.
Oh and dated before your birth as birth is a free process (except of course surrogacy, modern day human trafficking ) and we are not born with debt that they keep borrowing in our name, as they asset stripped our industries to the bone in their scramble to get to the trough.
SOUL 1: (as they are using the left handed practices of coercion, extortion and menaces)
A human skin parchment with two blood signatures, your mum and dad the only people that ever truly own you. and of course the obligatory cloven hoof print.
Now if they don’t have any of these three parchments, that is three strikes in anyone’s book, but never let it be said that we have become an unfair and petty nation. For if they cannot produce the docs then they can then do this and immediately get instant obedience.
SOUL 2: (the good right hand path)
Produce at will in the full view of independent witnesses a burning bush at the centre of the gathering. Then they really can go around acting as if they are God.
I am a human being.
I am not a Number.
I have inalienable rights.
I lend these right to my government to act on my behalf and in my name and for them to never be used against me or against my best interests. My nation holds my sovereign rights, while its elected government is held to the nations bond of its people for a fixed period of time (4 years not 5) to serve the nation and its collective best interests, just for those unelected law changer’s in Westminster.
All democrat political bodies are the representative office of the nation, to work on its behalf for its greater good. So How did a wealthy nation like Britain have its wealth stolen from under our noses. And how did the squanderer’s get back in to do it again, why is there no body watching this very important point of national interest. Makes you think does it not.
Seeing is believing
I came across the picture of the two girls with the Saltire on the shameful night in George square who were attacked by the Unionist thugs and still stood up to the intimidation and baiting. Quite a heroic act in the vein of Flora MacDonald’s story of her break in Prince Charlie’s escape.
It struck me that we do not give credit where credit is due to our lassies, the girls, women and ladies that make up the better half of mankind. So …….
This country has a new first minister Nicola Sturgeon and she has set a cracking pace right from the start and is brushed up on the facts and is both shooting from the hip with glib responses, to firing salvos from the shoulder marksmanship quality to one and all. They at first underestimated her and it is now beginning to make the opposition dig deeper for facts and to brush up on their knowledge, shame in most cases it’s their own history, policies or just their party that is at the base of their own embarrassment. Hoisted by their own petard springs to mind so far from the recent exchanges. The steady line and the cautious approach Nicola has taken for tack in the exchanges is the sure route towards a final push in May.
The SNP are a small unfunded party, with limited resources and they cannot possibly compete with the might of the Tory backers on a level platform, the Labour coffers or even the UKip’s mysterious donations. So instead of crowd funding on a site donate to your local branch, or an SNP site donation to help with the final push towards the election.
It is also time to recognise the efforts and talent of one of Scotland’s best long term assets namely Lulu. This woman is a survivor, has travelled the globe received an OBE and still sounds Scottish. She has maintained an active career in each decade since her Eurovision Contest win (Boom Bang a Bang) in 69 right up to the closing ceremony at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow 2014.
This brings me to some internationally famous women of the world.
Kelly Brook is the unofficial nations sweetheart, with an extensive career in modelling, acting and has a few other irons in the fire. Kelly also recently celebrated the unveiling of a new collection for plus-sized clothing range, Simply Be. While we are waiting for the release of her starring role in new US sit-com One Big Happy.
Cheryl Fernandez Versini yet another pond hopping great British woman with an enviable track record in the music industry, modelling (should see the Gothic Shoot images) and television work is quite a portfolio from music and modelling to perfume, namely StormFlower’s recent success to the donation of £100,000 from the proceeds to charity.
Miss Pixie Lott will be a relative surprise to some, but she is an established and accomplished singer songwriter and performer, with some acting credits. The thing that brought her to my attention for this piece was her appearance on Strictly. She came across well and seemed to enjoy the whole experience. Definitely a home-grown talent that should remain in the British star sky for some time to come.
Shania Twain this international singer songwriter has some impressive credits to her name. Her residency in LA, her humble beginnings in Windsor Canada, She changed her first name to “Shania” in 1990; it reputedly means “I’m on my way” in the Ojibway language. This woman’s stage presence is electric. She has a liking for fireworks and effect in her shows for all ages. Her album successes range from ‘The Woman in me’ , then ‘Come on Over’ with so many great singles from it to the more recent UP!. It is with great sadness I have to report she is preparing a final tour, never had the chance to be there, but the videos are excellent. The music world will be a little bit darker without her light and talent on a stage.
The most endearing point about this talented song writer and great performer is how she came to write the song From this moment, and the tragic events that brought the song into being. Hope she keeps performing even if this is the last tour.
This has just been a little accolade to some of the unsung women out there with amazing talent’s and careers. This blog is a little too small to add any more at this time. Just thought it needed saying.
Wan fir the lassies oh!
Well, Well, Well then.
Well the weather watchers and doomsday predictors have gotten it all wrong yet again, The weather fronts that were expected by the weather model predicting experts has fallen short of the mark or been in the wrong pitch entirely. Scotland enjoyed a reasonable winter, Glasgow had two days of snow and about twenty days of ice. This has more to do with the altitude for snow at sea levels and the Clyde has been channelling the milder winds and warmer waters from the gulf displacement and the added thermals from the Icelandic subterranean volcanic actions. Making the whole thing a lot milder than predicted.
At first looks 2015 is starting to shape up and take formative action, Britain has the highest amount of new employed since the meltdown, our economic returns are more than a little encouraging, and finally if Scotland was to break away from the 300 year old trade agreement called the Union, our English neighbours will not be bankrupted, the world will not end and a Nation that prides itself on its ability to con the poor, take advantage of the ignorance’s of native nations to build its own political empire and wealth. Can now get on with its own thing without having to interfere with a fledgling nation again. They won’t have to listen to us harp on about their inhumane actions, their selfish attitudes and their goals.
Scotland and England have never agreed on the primary drives of nation and empire building, though there have been deserters from both camps in the past, we have begun to stabilise as a nation, as England under the phony ‘British’ banner can now get back to the dirty tricks and interfering games that they so love and this time without the resurrection of the compulsion towards civil war (attacking your own) schism that has been a deep psychological scar in the British character for almost the whole 300 years. Could the non paedophile action in Westminster be more to do with the English predisposition or liking for taking advantage of others weaknesses, that to do with any form of sexual deviation, could it just be they are defending their history and predilections. They do like taking candy from babies and they are almost completely shameless. No wonder they have deserted Christianity over the last three decades. They do endorse the birth or creation of the modern man. Out with superstition and unprovable spiritualities, and to endorse goal setting, role-playing and health and fitness, mental well-being like yoga for concentration and control, meditation for thinking the problem all the way through and to learn to focus and refocus the rambling mind. Relaxation and de stressing to recharge the batteries and not a deity in sight (not that there ever was) so faith without the superstition, my what a well-shaped and devised formula for being.
Scotland with its sovereign power restored will now be in a stronger position to formalise a better trade and security agreement with our old allies. This island still needs to be defended, we need to pay our share to the defence of the realm. We no longer have large ports like Cardiff, Bristol and Plymouth to name a few, we do still have Ayr and Troon though they could not handle large freight fit for servicing a fledgling nation. This nation no longer has the military personnel or arms that it used to. The infrastructure has been given the poor man fix with a lick and a spit for more than four decades while England has redoubled its efforts to maintain a strong war footing on the world stage. To lead the world platform in intelligence agencies and law enforcement, litigation and law. There is nothing wrong with the tack being set, the course being taken, or even the decisions of some of the captains of industry, but the tactics are more than a little unpalatable, the end does not justify the means if the end result is a poorer human condition and a more calloused approach to life for the so-called collective good as declared by the victor.
Labour in Scotland so the rumour says is on the ropes and heading for a fall. Is this more to do with the fact that over the last five decades Britain has reduced its manufacturing footprint dramatically, while driving up the education of more blue and white-collar workers, more self-employed positions to further erode the working man’s party base to the minimum, could it also be that the Labour party has tried to redress the differences in the market drive to reduce the manufacturing base and had to try to address the middle management strata of worker that is currently being produced, the drive has almost completed the phase to reduce the common man in the workplace and in politics with the upwardly mobile selfish entrepreneur. No contract zero hours slave to the western enterprise. The present styled middle management political structure does tend to reflect the uncommon man as opposed to the classic labour stereotype the ubiquitous working man.
The defence issues of the western hemisphere are not up for speculation at this time, with the Russian playing cat and mouse war games with their old historic enemies. China gearing up for a stronger financial platform on the world stage and Europe having to look at the facts that collectives for any single greedy dominator taking the maximum with little humanity for people’s suffering or circumstances. There is no better way to keep each other alert and practiced, than to count coup. Drills only produce leader boards and speculation, live tests bring results and show up the bottlenecks and the slack quicker than any secular test will ever do. After all no-one on either side will be using live ammo. Trust them they are professionals would I lie to you. I would not want to be an ISIS member when this lot have finished brushing up to par. Who are they practising for.
The trouble with all of us is we all behave as if we should have individual rights that are greater than the groups rights. We all tend to want our own way and to get bolshie about anything that gets in the way of it. We tend to abuse the privileges that we all have and defend our right to do that. We have a tendency to hop in the car to go a few streets to the shop instead of walk because we believe it is saving us time, yes true but it still pushes up emissions, we burn electricity when it is not needed and get bloody minded about it.
The real trouble is that man is resistant to being told what to do, we all capitulate for the pay, yet we are belligerent in the workplace and still slow processes down and stretch the load to make it last and only pull out our fingers when an order must be met. Or a deadline kept. There is something about being told what to do that makes us drag our heals, and yet if we are asked we are more than willing to get up to speed, if we feel that we are helping someone we take charge and make short work of it. As a nation we overeat, guilty as charged, but on a new eating program not a diet. We don’t really know what to do with excess money and so squander more than we intend to. We know all the tales about wasting power, buying heavily packaged goods and leaving the car idling or making too many short trips in the car that can be walked, yet here we are after more than fifty years of expert advice. Still on the road of self-indulgence even in the face of third world poverty and hardship, we all still bloody mindedly want all things our own way and hell and be damned any goody two shoes that tries to tell us otherwise.
Now as children we had to obey and do as we were told at least up to three generations ago anyway. As each new generation has stepped up to bat they have had more and more privilege than the previous generation had. This should have had the effect of making a more willing new force, but with kids just chucking litter all over the place and as the hospitals and police can attest to, the revellers of this generation are no better than the previous generations with drink and violence at the weekends. And are just as adamant about getting their own way but are more accretive about it and more assured in feeling that they can and are entitled to do so. The nurture of the indulged next generation little darlings.
This is the perceptions of a man on the sidelines that is no longer in the game but is more of an observer than a participant. human nature seems to start at a base level in each successive generation and it seems to go through the same faults, hitting the same pitfalls and heading up the same blind alleys as the previous ones, each generation declares that it is not like the previous one, as the hippies sun was setting, the next rebellion was punk a total 180% knee jerk to the psychedelic fantasy and drug fuelled fab and hip culture of the beat generation successors. Each cultural redressed the differences and there are a few crossovers in the handover process, each making their stamp or so they think. Then with the rise of the corporate takeover of the music industry and as more big bands signed to labels the music revolution was capitalised right into the old dinosaur network of the fat controllers domain. If ever there was a death knell to a bright young dream it is when a band sells out ideals and dreams for so-called wealth. With the likes of Abba and their financial downfall and the last of the rock rebels dying in hard-drinking and hard living ways the writing was on the wall for the music industry after the corporate curse took effect. The movement was driven by idealists and believers and labels didn’t exist the fans were devotees and clubs were run by real fans and followers. Lyrics were inspirational, or told the story of lives, the music was radical and ground breaking and it was mutual love. The establishment order, took charge of venues and with permits, rights access, health and safety they strangled the hold outs into submission and now several decades later, we can see from stars in their eyes to the Hex Factor the jinks has nearly killed of the inspirational wellspring to deliver middle of the road, boy bands and singing groups. Not exactly the stuff of legend and all with very short shelf lives. The movie industry has become formula driven and mega stars like the early ones are now a thing of the past. All stitched up and served on a bland repeatable and almost predictable format.
The downfall of the creative process is when a star wants their own way, and just refuses to be told better, they price themselves out of the industry. Just like a one hit wonder James Bond actor. And there are many rumours like Megan Fox and the Transformers films. When we are doing better it is all kept to slow for us, we get pushier and pushier to get more and more of our own way. If we feel we are being deliberately slowed down, overlooked or sidelined we tend to kick up a bit more and push our luck and stretch chances and opportunities. Politicians hiring family and yet if you can’t help family who can you help.
Insight is the ability to see through the miasma, to get an understanding beyond the normal vision of things and to make a leap of understanding. In a world where there are no guarantees in any level of life and most estimates are no more than educated guesses, like how many hectares of land does it take to produce all the opium in the world and how come after some sixty years we still can’t pinpoint all the drug growing lands and with modern satellites that can we are told, photograph distant galaxies millions of light years away and yet we can’t map a ball of spinning dirt only a mile and a half below them. Track planes by heat signature as well as black box so no more flights can go missing. Then there is the north sea oil, they had no way of knowing how much was ever down there it was an educated guess, but when the inevitable happened, the prices fell and so the oil will now be used up quicker, that is why fracking is being pushed through against better sense, legal obligation, an unelected government committing unconstitutional acts against the electorate, working against the will of the people, ignoring the mandate to protect and serve and instead giving itself dictatorial powers, trying to circumvent the mandate of the people by giving sovereign rights away, the very rights that bind a government to its people and nation (TTIP).
The lowering of oil prices will mean that we who cannot reign ourselves in and show any level of restraint will squander the last of it too quickly, this will have an effect on shipping of raw materials and then re shipping the final products.
This governmental system has tried in vain to get the common man to reign himself in to eat sensibly, to use public transport, they tried pricing cars out of the poorer man’s pocket, in general it is believed that they have the least self-restraint of all, that they are the most self-indulgent, but when you look at the pricing of bubbly for the big house, the pay rises and the scams and expenses, they are proving to be no better than anybody else and in some areas worse than all of the rest of us together, they can change the laws as they see fit.
It is fast becoming a clear and present fact that the system is trying to get sacked and is trying to get off the hook of dealing with no oil, a belligerent and self-indulgent population and dwindling resources in a now global aggressive market. We keep proving we hate being made to be sensible and have a strong irrational streak in our natures. We refuse to eat sensibly, to live healthier and exercise more, to regulate our motor vehicle use, to holiday at home instead of flying. This is because when the world was fresh in the fifties, oil was plentiful and gas guzzlers were the self-indulgence of a pride driven USA, it was the advent of the labour-saving devices, washing machines and luxury goods becoming available to the common man, that industry and commerce first started the hike to do more have more get more, and hell take the hindmost if you don’t get yours bub. The very roots of the capitalist base were born in little America’s back kitchen production lines and the rat race really began in earnest.
Scotland is lucky that it can produce such a sustainable development for renewable energy production, but that may mean we are all on electric cycles and electric cars before the next decade is here. At this time of year as we all celebrate the New Year and say goodbye to the old it is even harder to get people to reign it in. With so many people thinking that they are on a journey, or are just out to find themselves, we tend to treat the world as a transition phase as we pass through it, but something better must be maintained for the next generations as they are being born. so let’s hope that with the western worlds strangle hold on Russia we do not forget that people, will suffer while governments will survive. Let’s hope that no one is starved or frozen by the sanctions stranglehold.
Take a moment to think, take only what you need and can use and leave some for others. Be more sensible with power and oil, eat better and get out more. Carry a little bit more responsibility and we may just make it round the next corner. Have a happy new year one and all.
The forecasters are all over the shop again with their storm bombs and their forecast generalisations. The predictions again show a distinct lack of foresight and accuracy that is quite honestly getting more than a little embarrassing. The forecasters are beginning to behave more than a little like the politicians of the post referendum debacle as they change stories, swap stances and infiltrate other parties (keep your eye on them), and while a leopard cannot change its spots it can purr like a kitten when it pleases. Pre election rats leaving the sinking ship is very suspicious both in their timing and their actual credentials. Buyer beware springs to mind for any new fortunate group ranks that are being swollen by ship jumping pre-election deserters?
The forecasts about the weather have been just as accurate as most election pledges, promises and the usual round of bribes and incentives, from the we want to rule you all, our way and we will give you these concession’s if they don’t get in the way of our master plans, which we will not tell you about as we don’t have to declare anything, and will keep implementing as we see fit when you elect us in, even when we unelected-ly coalition ourselves in .
First the forecast was for four-week period for Frozen Britain this stated that the Islands were all expected to be plunged into a bleak winter. Then we woke on Friday and ‘Britain’ was experiencing a frost blanketed morning, but it turned out to be just Kent, while Glasgow had a little bit of ice and only the distant peaks showed white caps of frost or light snow that were gone by the next day. Excessive use of exaggeration guys. In winter forecasting it could all be about elevation guys. Then it was all about a warming and well you get the picture.
Glasgow Fri 12/12/14 Campsies.
Glasgow Sun 14/12/14 Campsies.
While the period of climate change was under way with the convergence of the nine realms, the weather changes have had particular country and ethnic results. America has been experiencing some of the Baltic’s front and temperature dips in winter, cold fronts and drifts. The effect that it has had is the American is a little bit more reserved for the exchange and more than a little subdued from the effects. In the summer evidence that the southern states storms have settled back into a more spaced out pattern is starting to show while life is going on as normal.
The summer for the Russian bears that were finally getting out of the winter cave were stretching their legs, leaning on neighbour s and pissing off the world leaders with their bolshie behaviour. High spirits abounded with some tailgating the locals and taking the toys (subs planes etc) out for a spin as well as Vlad getting out and about on some field trips is all good for the weather incarcerated bears to get out and mark territory and mate, they are now recruiting males that breed indiscriminately or prolifically must be suffering from some diminished or chilled ardour in the Baltic’s then, more than just a breeze about their knees then. While their new Santa List for xmass has just been revealed.
While Britain experienced a schism in its psyche that produced a cold front from the south and a chill wind from north of the borders. It is beginning to show marked differences in weather fronts as well, flooding is becoming normal south of the divide especially in autumn through winter and even into spring in some areas. Skiers are facing delays in their favourite resorts as the winter delays of snow now could bolster the Aspen resorts clientele making a tidy profit for their industry, or even New York state if the cold front becomes settled there.
So as we all settle down to the approaching festive season we are again looking at too many repeats on terrestrial TV as ‘they’ try to wean us on to pay for view so that only the elite will be informed and all others will be ostracised in the process adding to the schism in our social differences. As newspapers are all facing a printing death as will magazines as we all drive forward on the progress locomotive that is steaming ahead to paperless (no such thing, they are aiming for paper free) offices. This will remove receipts to some form of handheld device that is quite a Space 1999 type of universal communicator, computer and information center, money personal details, medical records, or to you and me the next generation of smart phone one without a breakable screen. Ah the next generation x devices already on the xmass lists and wish lists of the programmed populace of the western world.
Well as this year is heading for a close would like to take the time to wish everyone a great holiday, both for xmass and for the new year, where hopefully we will see a new political landscape by the spring time for Scotland. Dear Santa on the next election can you please wake Scotland up enough to take care of its own business as the present set of unelected managers are too crooked to trust and have a collective hidden agenda, with TTIP, and fracking up the landscape. So lest make it a golden turnout Scotland Needs Protecting, so remember what SNP stands for.
It still amazes me that people think that Scotland can play Westminster politics and win for Scotland. It only works for the English at home and the English residents in their land grabbed footholds in Northern Ireland, Southern Scotland, Southern Wales where they are all alright Jack.
The new jobs creation program for the submarines at Faslane, when coupled with the Westminster withholding of job creation powers for Scotland, will see a new influx of Westminster voter to swell the traitorous ranks in the lowlands. The housing waiting list are already prejudicial to the indigenous Scott that is unemployed or on disability or benefits of any kind. While new housing associations will fast track new workers into the area using the know associates (work boss colleagues) or existing family as the English like to do. Will have the effect of disenfranchising the indigenous in their own lands. Oh yes and Ian Duncan Smith wants to limit people to two children per household and that will keep Scotland’s population at the present levels, while new jobs are created from the south and a mobile workforce is drafted in. All Scottish local authorities are showing a distinct bias to Westminster lead policies that are not on any manifesto and have a back door staging action. Council tax, bedroom tax and yet more taxes for the asset strippers from next door. They really are the grinch at the festive table.
So lest make 2015 a golden year for Scotland and regain our sovereignty to get these inequalities addressed in our own land. All the best for the festive season one and all.
In the know
What you see, what you hear and what you know are three very different things. Your lifestyle will have a big effect on how disconnected these three perceptions of life will be. There was a video clip on my Face book feeds this morning showing a dash cam image of a crash as it happened, the driver veered across the lanes into oncoming traffic to collide with a truck. The video went viral and the belief that it happened in America and the dashboard camera was in a state troopers vehicle was the word on the video. It has since come to light that the driver of the car was killed and he was from Moscow, the road itself is a notorious one for taking lives. A long way from the version passed around as is.
The busy life styles of most people prohibit the ability to delve past the initial report and to go and verify what we hear or are told is the truth as the rumour is more interesting than the real story is. We tend to accept it at face value more readily if it conforms with one of our own beliefs about the world negative or positive, good bad or indifferent. So we quite quickly begin to accept things even when we cannot check them out or verify them ourselves. A modern age coping mechanism to let us think that we can keep up and feel involved and connected, when in reality most of it is speculation, observation and a smattering of misinformation.
The discrepancies in the represented facts and the world realities are never then questioned, most people will never revisit a story again, unless the type of incident is active in that person’s world. the facts about Housing, schools, care, banking, police, criminal justice and of course politics are very different to what we are told is going on. Newspapers are in the business of selling papers and so they will dig till they get an angle on a story that will sell and that is just a harsh fact of life, media has to toe the line between informing people and government policy of keeping some things out of the public domain for the national interest of course.
Some discrepancies are blatant and yet we never tend to question them like wine figures, this shows the countries and the hectares are minute in each country so don’t let the map fool you. The truth is there are not enough hectares of vineyards in the world to produce all the so-called quality wines we have and the cheep plonk that is available, so how is the shortfall produced, an easy speculation is to assume the cheep end is made up from low quality grapes and are mixed and that a certain percentage has to be made using the old bath tub gin method. The creation of flavoured alcoholic drinks is not new and has a well established history.
Another glaring discrepancy is why after all the foreign aid (checkout unspecified listings) to countries that this country has given aid to, why is a large portion of the money siphoned off into some dictators pockets, creating a minor elite of wealthy leaders in poor countries, while the rest is only used for education and social purposes. Why is the west still the main recipient of raw goods and materials from third world countries, and our aid is not to increase their ability to manufacture the goods themselves. But is aimed at education and no real investment in manufacture or small business start-ups. Why are we shipping raw goods around the world and all the cost for this, then the west takes the materials which are then processed and then shipped again by western industries, like for instance African cocoa beans. How come Africa with all its diamonds, gold and safari industries is still too poor to manufacture and take over the global production of chocolate and all its diverse products, after all take cocoa, sugar and milk and you have chocolate, yet…
Another strange thing is the discrepancy in the housing situation in Scotland, a recent amendment has stopped the right to buy, you wonder why. The locals and indigenous population find themselves on waiting lists that can last for years in some cases decades. Yet a working stiff transplanting from an industry based investment in Scotland will be fast tracked up the housing ladder, giving preferential treatment to workers and yet the fact that councils have been made to sell of housing stock has sped this process up and as local investment for the Scots and jobs creation is anti Westminster policy is surely just pure coincidence. Transplanting the Scot out of work and house and home is a mission creeping action and a policy of our Westminster elected (sorry unelected ) government. The Smith report (download the PDF) has confirmed that whenever Scotland try’s to play at Westminster politics Scotland loses out every single time. No jobs creation powers mean no housing prospect for Scots this will increase housing lists and stretch waiting times while fast tracking new jobs, and non Scottish workers will be eligible under the new housing association policies of housing for working people. This is beginning to look like a deliberate policy to supplant the indigenous population with a capitalist base that has allegiances to Westminster. Is this the beginning of the end for any form of home rule for Scotland, when misinformation is common and nawbag infiltrators are rife in the social media forums, the political party charm offensive and recruitment drive has started in earnest. This media smoke screen is just keeping the Scot in the dark or just chasing red herrings.
A government of the people is elected by the people to serve the nations people, to protect the land and its resources for the future generations. The pseudo democracy that the Westminster politics is, that is financed by large corporate backers is there to serve the greater good of the economy and wealth of its investors more than it is to serve its nation and its people. Therefore it makes good sense for them to protect their investors interests and to pay resource and material countries to not manufacture goods and to be content with just shipping the materials to the western investment base.
This country needs a consensus of people ready willing and able to get together and not just for the nice day out marches and protests that are mainly sales points for memorabilia, recruitment drives for political parties and are at best just feel good social exercises to make people believe that they are getting some place in their campaign promotions.
When any country in the world has a consensus of the electorate active and ready to vote and will be there at the checking points and counts by having an off the forum headcount ready to check against official declarations, then that will be a real democratic action a public figure check that will show up the infiltrators that say they will, when they never will, this will help deliver a realistic count of the people, by the people for the greater good of the people and its nation, to protect the national interest against big industry and large investment houses trying to steal people’s rights under some global control mechanism, to strip nations of their inherent powers and historic rights.
Ah well suppose that is just another item for the Christmas wish list, for some fine day in the future then, as most people are kept too busy running around to do anything about it.
Tote that barge lift that bale, if you don’t do as your told you will end in jail.
Using the Eye in the Sky
The domestic use of the average household in the west is galactic when compared to the third world, we burn electricity 27/7.
some countries in this world cannot even afford more than a couple of candles a night.
Yet if you take a look at this satellite photo you can clearly see what the devils advocate will use to prosecute the havers over the be’ers.
So you see m’lud the evidence is overwhelmingly, well obvious. B|
The threats of power outages and brown outs has been brought back around again, and it’s time to clarify a few home truths about the unhealthy lifestyles and environments of the present day western world and the price that will be passed on to the next generations.
The incubation heat and environment for most bacteria with some exceptions is a moist environment at about blood heat after all they are aiming at a blood host to survive in. We don’t need a scientists observational record keeping data charts to see the variances as there is never one to hand when you need them. And a working rule of thumb is more appropriate. So it stands to reason that a modern centrally heated home is a great culture for bacteria, it was intended to sell antibacterial agents and to keep the average man exposed to them to slowly build resistances to them. Two warm an environment central heating turned up two high is not a good culture when faced with a strain like Ebola.
Yet the medical council do not advise turning down the thermostat to counter any new diseases and this should be the first thing that everyone should do for their own safety. Over the last five years there have been several scares and no pandemic, this is down to blind luck more than good planning or disease control.
With the latest Ebola failure to reach epidemic status the back street labs of the current Dr No will have to go back to the drawing board. The scares about pandemics and all the rest have people putting on the masks to conform more than out of fear, how many good children in china wear a mask because their siblings or peers do, yet life is resilient and does not appear to give up its hold on the day lightly.
The modern day life is so fast tracked and out of sync that most people are not aware of what illusions it takes to keep everyone thinking it is all still OK.
The government program to get everyone to use energy-saving light bulbs (yeah those two dim to see by) had a dramatic effect on power usage at the household outlet level leaving more juice for industry. The average house has six to eight bulbs give or take one or two per. This when you take into account the normal bulb was 100w (wats) and the replacement was using 11w to 22w by comparison a saving in a six bulb household of between 540w for 11w replacements to 480w for 22w ones. an eight bulb house or flat saved the householder from 640w to 720w by replacing them. But at the same time we were moving from a TV and video, cooker, washing machine, fridge freezer maybe a toaster and a music centre, yeah those old things with tape decks and turntables ask your mum or dad. We moved to a computer, phones to be charged, game boys and various kids toys on charge to a TV set on standby and video, plus a DVD in the really swanky homes plus all the normal white goods. So the saving were offset by the new white goods, even the advent of energy-saving washers and fridges didn’t make much of an impact as a PC used to be 200w to 250w and is more likely 450w to 600w these days eating up any saving from the energy efficient light bulbs.
With more people behaving as if they can burn energy twenty four hours a day the picture becomes a little bit more of a nightmare. With so many appliances on permanent charge and so many extra TV’s in kids rooms always on standby to just be activated from standby by a press of a button on a remote. The scale of the problem becomes a little bit more clear. This of course is only in the western word. Some countries have people who have never known anything other than candle light even in this day and age. The western lifestyle and the way kids treat their goods has the nation generating power to cover the wastage. Instead of educating people to be a bit more responsible.
Just this week a coco plantation worker on the Ivory coast who had grown the stuff for decades was given a taste of chocolate for the first time and his reaction was amazing. Yet we take for granted that we can have what we want and some nations cannot even have the staples to make ends meet. The governments of the western world know that if they were to start power outs the grumblings from the work level of the country would cause chaos to the infrastructure, yet something has to give, oil is a finite resource, nuclear is still a dangerous and dirty option, while fusion is still a long way off, so gas and coal are again being looked at. Since we stopped burning so much fossil fuels the world has had a small recovery and yet this government intends to burn coal underground trapping the carbon in a sealed grave, This is a good solution to getting power but a bad idea for the land stability. Yet if everyone switched of all appliances until needed, took all chargers of when charged and used the PC less and used energy saving devices with good sense it would help and lessen the need to keep modern life on permanent pause just in case.
Living in an artificial environment has a great cost to the outer environment, insulation has played a part and heat loss programs are helping, not burning fossil fuels is a great help but fracking and burning underground sources will destabilise the seams as they burn and collapse unsupervised, ask any miner still alive today this is not a good idea.
A raising of consciousness starts with a conscientious approach to managing resources responsibly, that must happen from the ground up to the pinnacles of society. Every person must share their own responsibility and take the load of the infrastructure as our wastefulness in the face of the rest of the worlds want is decadent to say the least.
The states solution was cost-effective management and that has now shown to be an accountants solution to the problem as everything equates to money for them, and as with money becoming harder to earn people will be more careful with their spending than with their energy waste. The streaming migration from poorer counties to this land of excessive luxury (by comparison to a third world environment) will only be stemmed by generating a cheap alternative that gives them basic power and amenities, water shelter and food provision. Recycled old white goods are a start and better land management has to be instigated, this with desalination for drought areas and better waste management from even old clay pipe sanitation with waste purification to fertilisers or even cesspool management to build on, instead of the populace’s deserting arable lands, to stem the depopulation in hard pressed countries.
Think before you click, standby is waste and should be out of manufacture and design except for real luxury goods as the common man refuses to do what is right. What we all know is right and yet ….
Stockpiles and Excesses
It would seem from the ”www.jungle.drums” that there is a shortage of chocolate in the world today and that by 2020 the shortfall will see consumption exceeding production by a third. Africa is a wealthy nation with rich resources and yet the bulk of the money from them is not going to the nation that owns them. Diamonds, gold etc. Now if there is any native savvy left in the African, why ship out coco beans and let someone else cash in on the surge in prices that chocolate are about to provide in just five years time. Why with milk and sugar so close to home and with diamonds to fund it, why not make the holy delicacy there and then ship the finished goods no double levy for the raw ingredients and then the product.
Just part of my job search observations for emerging markets like the home-grown Yes market in my own homeland, the market it seems has lost a hero found a new first lady, and swollen its ranks from 45% to a resounding 52% and all in the space of a month and a half. The hope over fear campaign has taken strength from the fear mongering TTIP, and Fracking lies that are being used to shake the unsure from their home berths and to try to make them pack up and run, these media based scare stories carry no weight. The ground base has developed a new Scot2Scot website and FB sites, for all the constituency groups in each electoral region, like to see a graphic display when you log in showing the membership percentages overall in Scotland by membership and then by region. The fight for the labour seats has been dealt with, while no real contender has come out of the labour camps. So the growth market is a base of 1.6 million to over 2 million in just about six weeks, unprecedented in any political state let alone country except for Catalonia, who managed a massive 81% of the voting populace. Scotland still has a bit to go and may only achieve sixty to seventy percent, as a migrant workforce that sees itself as British is hard at work in the defence industry that England has established off its own soil I might add, and is looking at taking in nuclear waste for us to deal with as a dump site, Scotland is no longer an annex more like a spare bedroom policy in action.
The paedophile problems in the government are being rehashed as if they are a new thing, that any government that has voting sessions and has a count of the aye’s and the no’s and that uses a whip system to bully the staunch causes or even the dissenters in their own ranks, has had to accept that to gain majorities, you have to work with what you have, if there are any skeletons in the cupboard they will be known and the pressure will be applied to get policies through that are backed by the state. Trying to fight and change a corrupt system is a waste of time and the old ploy ‘we have papers you can fill in and if you petition such and such’ we can see what we can do about it, are all a system has ever used to keep the unhappy occupied. Never fight the old system just build the new one and replace it completely.
The fact that every state has manipulated the right type of skills into its employ if they can keep a massive amount of leverage over someone’s head they can be coerced into, spying, assassinations, fear of exposure is the second most powerful manipulation tool to use to get someone to go against their own will, to put their lives at risk to save their reputations, Russia used to recruit closet homosexuals when this backwater prosecuted them, then the old fême fetal or Mata Hari to the perverse and build up a profile and dossier to keep the leverage up. The first best piece of leverage is of course direct manipulation, seize a man’s kids and wife who has the right set of skills for a particular job and they will be easily coerced, once initial resistance is dealt with most will comply as they have unusual skills that imply a moral destitution. or that they have at least done this before. It will of course be the last thing he does and his family will also disappear.
The tactics of attrition are currently, the TTIP no elected government can give away a countries sovereign power as they are empowered by it and are subject to it and would be making an act of treason against their own electorate. Any government that licenses a company that does not have to declare its chemicals uses is not defending the land or its resources like water tables. Unconstitutional acts by a government against the power of a nation is an act of treason. Any unelected government, like a self-appointed coalition leaves itself and its members open to a private and a state prosecution after the next vote, next year. Crimes against the state even unconstitutional acts by a government against its own people, the unelected have no place to hide and no diplomatic immunity. They are personally responsible for their actions and their party advisor’s are complicit in their deeds while they claim to be in office.
After Alex Salmond stepped down this nation gave a warm round of applause and then the canny man went and played a blinder, forty two thousand pounds a year while he is getting an MSP pay packet, it reverts to him when he finally does retire. What a man, makes you proud to be Scottish. So Alexander Salmond is on to bigger and better things with an assured place in Scottish history and Ed Milliband is just small change by comparison. The Labour foothold in Scotland is beyond repair and may need to be scrapped. While the new politically active youth of the ‘generation yes’ have a new head of party and proposed first minister of Scotland. The generation yes storm is brewing Look out Westminster. And the wolverine is off scalp hunting so look out Danny Alexander.
The Scottish psyche is struggling towards a national identity and is facing a crisis in its diversity. The quote ‘The trouble with Scotland is its full of Scots’ from the character Edward Long-shanks in the Braveheart film sums up the war of attrition that has been waged on the Scottish since then. The Scottish nation has never been a united nation at any time, the clans were easily bribed and turned against one another by the prolonged tactics of the invading English. What he never said but may have understood was the good thing for England about the Scots, is they are a nation of individuals, with a clan mentality and no national collective, they cannot agree or get on with one another and so are ripe for the old tactics of divide and conquer.
The British psyche is made up from the influx of the particular minded Irish being misunderstood as intolerant with their rebellious natures, when coupled with the Scottish quotient of the independently minded bread of the clans being misunderstood as indifference. Then the investing Welsh from the land of the investiture with their nationalistic language mindset. The final element in the mix is the invasive and interfering ways of the English attitude to their self-proclaimed right to lead and direct. This was a formative mix in what lead up to the formulation of the British Empire and history can attest to how far that spread on the world map, either a deadly or effective collaboration depending on which side of the empire fence you find your feet on.
The Empire and all of its dealings can be best understood from the national emblem the lion, for as a nation all of their negotiations, invasions and dealings Britain has always demanded the lion’s share of control and access. This is in hindsight more than a little uncomfortable to hear said in such a cold and analytical form as this post is doing. But for the times and taking into account the nature of acquisitions and procurement. Success was measured in hard cold cash, goods or land. So the empire was a very successful and capable tool for this nation. As the old saying goes ‘Buyer beware’ must have been the order of the day. The heritage of the old Eton fields of England’s sense of fair play and good sportsmanship had no place on the field of conflict as the pompous bulldog would have said and so the tactics of war were and still are used (Gazza, Georgia), invade, settle and expunge the locals or hound them out. Seize lands possessions and wealth take over infrastructures and transfer ownership. Nothing new there then, very Germanic even in these so-called modern and enlightened times we are supposed to be living in.
The Scottish referendum brought to light a great deal of weaknesses in the Scottish psyche and laid bare a few exploitable regions that the Westminster machine used with great advantage against the home team on the home turf.
The rise in membership of the SNP, the greens and the old favourite shows the diversity of the independently minded Scot and how this diversity will dilute the effective power of an emerging nation. For with the nation being so split by party and preferences no formative leading party will be an outright winner in any other election. This is good in one way no power will have total sway over the electorate, a landslide in any election means total power for the elected party and as we have seen how that corrupted the Westminster machine when any party has more than one term of office, they cannot help playing god with people’s lives . The best thing in the mix at the moment is the fact that so many nationals want to actively do something about the Westminster machine, the drive to rid this land of the sell-out labour, Tories and the UKIP as well as the liberals is the collective voice of the nation. Traditionally when our fathers generation used to vote the other party in after one term said that they understood corruption much better than this generation or indeed the last four generations have. No matter how widespread the memberships are over various parties, the nation should vote for the National party to sever the Westminster ties as a first course of action and we are well on our way to doing than now. Join any party you wish but on the next general election vote for Scotland and not for Westminster. One unified voice will show that this nation that as the old saying goes ‘two Scots canny agree on the colour of sh@t’ is who we were in our parents and even grandparents days. But not now in the light of the referendum fixing by Westminster.
The fact that all of human nature is flawed is inescapable in the glare of the modern media machines reporting, everything from the off the page players, religious bodies, behind the scenes mandarins and global conglomerates has shown that a disengaged political public are their own worst enemy. The sheer lack of strategy in the electorate approach to managing politics, when balanced against the subliminal messages of the day that say ‘you are too busy to trifle with the mundane’, ‘the world is too big and too complex for you on your own, so stay out of what you don’t understand’, to the media hype that ‘having’ instead of being is all of life and you need to stay on the treadmill and just keep your head down, with the ever-changing landscape of the markets, banking, teaching and schools, policing and the judiciary as well as prisons and dealing with offenders to managing migrants and asylum seekers shows very clearly that we are still in our political infancy. Investing and breaking even are the new order of the day and most people are convinced by the hype and have disengaged from the political process instead of engaging with it and making the changes in it to reform it before the corporate mafia takes over from the existing puppet governments of the worlds nations.
One rebel (Russell Brand) is saying use the party of none of the above as a collective will be effective when that will only bring about an emergency set of measures till a viable vote is returned, the electorate are staying away in droves. Yet in contrast to this the SNP has seeing a marked increase in their membership from a youthful zeal with loads of energy and a sense of destiny in their thinking. Are engaged and with a will to reform the party from a Westminster clone to a national staple for their children and theirs. There is now enough new blood in the mix to make the changes necessary. So that all the other parties will have swollen ranks and bearing in mind that absolute power corrupts absolutely. No membership will effectively hold the balance of power in the nation. So when the next election in 2015 comes around, as long as we have an off the political platform a consensus of the electorate accounted for we will all know how to vote regionally and nationally. This is effective and is a form of legal rigging if the country agrees to it, better than the Westminster machines type and a whole lot more palatable going down.
Constitutional Scotland will be an online Social Media group for the nation a virtual presence for the nations electorate, this is as yet going to start with the Facebook page and then the site will have to be bought then constructed, this will be a formative step for people signing up and stating their political choice in the nation and the region. So the finding will only be shown to members, these will be in the form of each area and nationally. So after a vote if the figures don’t match up then crying foul will be easier to prove. This form of online presence will also highlight the regional and national population figures against the members in each area and nationally to more easily show up the holes in the figures. The non members in each area will not be known but the members in each area can then form alliances and drive the localised campaigns and coordinate regionally and nationally. The unknown members will show what the ratio of dissenters and British voters as one grouping but the numbers will be a realistic take on the last vestiges of the naturalised Scot in his/her own homeland.
The other affiliated pages and groups for the core active members to keep track and organise are. Clan Scotland a general FB page for information and events details and then the FB group that is for the active members researchers and affiliated parties to keep up to speed about events and policies. Clan Alba and Clan 45 are going to be developed in the same format.
Clan Scotland FR page is intended for the whole of the residents and indigenous people of Scotland to use as a platform.
Clan Alba FB page is intended for use for the outlying districts that are not as well populated or have just hereditary roots and have a leaning towards a more traditional view of Scotland and its image.
Clan 45 FB page is intended for the use of the new age Scot or Celt from the ranks of the 45 rebellion this has a potential membership of 1.6 million people, so a single Facebook page will have a heavy feed.
This FB first start is to get the ball rolling. Constitutional Scotland will have the type of communities that can then be managed internally on a dedicated site with notifications, groups, events and no tracking or adverts gumming up the works. This is no one man task and so a call is going to be sent out for those that have the skills, the knowhow and the time effort and energy to get this all in place before the next general election, this site will be in effect a national census of the nations populace, even the abstainers will count by non membership. This will be the clearest view any nation has ever had of its own national makeup and profile.
No war was ever won by winning the first battle, most wars are long drawn out affairs that eat up lives and resources. So a full physical fight is not what is called for. Uniting a nation of individuals is a hard task but it is not one that will produce any casualties of war.
Are we ready to deal with human rights and to make a constitution with ourselves and then with a consensus rise and take our place among the nations of the world. Well Caledonia are you ready to unite as a nation and stand man woman and child to formulate your own form of governance. To tie our elected government to a peoples charter, to swear them in in service to the nations electorate? to safeguard the populace, the economy and the lands. The ball is at your foot and the tools to accomplish this are within reach.
