Seems people power may have stopped a coup. Something we need to look at everywhere. Stop the minority of power hungry nuts from ruining the world.

Loons on the left, Loons on the right

Seems odd in these political election that all the parties seem to be more prepared to align with loons than form a moderate highly democratic government.

New or Old Cabinet

Both the UK and Oz are getting new cabinets. Same  I feel they will be full of the same old dirty underwear and smell old socks the old ones where.

Pokemon Go

Recent news suggests that Pokemon Go is not suitable for cemeteries and other places. See here. This may be so and I respect the wishes of others think. But when I die I would love to rest in a place where people play, children laugh and  rejoice in life and have a greater freedoms. The grass may not be cut and the flowers dead, but the sound of jubilation would make me smile while I turn over in my grave and find a more contented position.

Clinton endorsed by Bernie

Will there be a woman in charge of the U.S.A. While looking at famous American women the statue of Liberty came up and this poem by Emma Lazarus.

The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she

With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”


We should consider these words,.More info in this link

May (Flower) in July leads Britain into the Light

The Mayflower set sail from Britain , carrying the English seperatists to the New World, in 1620. So glad we have moved on. Theresa May, the new Mayflower (although it is now July) of Britain will not have similar success (if you consider the USA a success),  just where on earth are they going to go? The mind boggles. Just like in 1620 the dissatisfied have launched their ageing rickety old boat into new waters. Unfortunately the world to be discovered has already been inhabited/colonised, the Empire is somewhat aged and however bright the alternative to Europe seems to the average bloke (supping his Carlsberg) at the pub thinks, the light went out long ago. It may be just a bit funny to be a new generation of refugees.

Euro: Ronaldo sort of wins major

The argument who is best between Ronaldo and Messi has persisted for years now. Ronaldo seems arrogant  etc. but he manages to be the most giving as far as charity is concerned by anyone else in the sporting world. This contrasted with Messi and his recent tax problems definitely gives Ronaldo the edge in my opinion. This is easily fixed by Messi of course. Messi just needs to give more to charity, or if he already does advertise it better.
