Il Divo – Amazing Grace – And Freedom for Scotland

The sound of the Bagpipes do strange things to a Scottish person, I think it is in our DNA, when the Bagpiper comes in at 2 minutes 15 seconds every hair on my body stands on end. I love this song, it is sung at Weddings and parties, I remember as a kid wondering why we always sung this song. As I grew older I got it. As I got older I understood what being Scottish IS. What it means and why patriotism comes so easy for me. But people the World over are patriots, be you from England, USA, China, Argentina or Russia, people love where they are from. The sheer amount of history in my country is staggering, not far from the back of my house are 2 small houses, one we think was a castle, just ruins now, but both are from the 13oo’s. When you venture to the City you can’t help but look up at Edinburgh Castle as it towers over the city. Steeped in history that made Scotland what it is today. Soon we vote on independence, but be we get it or not won’t change my ways. I am Scottish not British. I have English friends, I don’t dislike England, I just love Scotland, call me a nationalist call me what you will, I just love my Country. When I am up the town and I see a loan piper I stand or sit for an hour or more, listening to what used to be outlawed pipes by English rule, now we are free to sing and play the pipes. As things stand we have devolution, we take care of our own affairs but Westminster (London) has the purse strings. I vote #AYE because I know the battles that went before me, history I was taught as a kid come to the fore and I know on September 19th I will be crying no matter the result. I don’t care about politics, I don’t care about any political party, I care about the future of my people, my kids and of course Scotland, nothing could take me from her shores but maybe I will have to for a while due to disability. Until that day, and past that day my feet belong on Scottish soil. If you are Scottish and vote #NAW on the 18th you don’t know the history, you don’t care for the blood spilled to allow us to vote on the 18th September, NEVER FORGET WHO YOU ARE, WHERE YOU COME FROM OR MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHERE ‘WE’ ARE GOING! COME ON SCOTLAND, WE CAN AND MUST DO THIS!

“For the First Time in History, most Members of Congress are Millionaires”

#AceNewsServices says if you’ve been following the news, watching late night TV, or even reading The Onion, you probably know that millionaires are now the new normal in Congress.

News organizations from The New York Times to BBC, and comedians from Jon Stewart to Jay Leno weighed in on our story, and the reaction was huge.

Finally found the whole documentary!!!
“A racially-charged criminal trial and a heart-rending love story converge in this documentary about Richard and Mildred Loving, set during the turbulent Civil Rights era. Long Way Home: The Loving Story is a story of love and the struggle for dignity set against a backdrop of historic anti-miscegenation sentiments in the U.S. The Lovings, an interracial couple, fell in love and married at a critical time in American history, and, because of a confluence of social and political turmoil our reluctant heroes bring about change where previously no one else could. They are paired with two young and ambitious lawyers who are driven to pave the way for Civil Rights and social justice through a historic Supreme Court ruling, changing the country’s story forever (IMBD).”..

Give Peace A Chance

I have mused over the events that have taken place in the last few weeks, since the US and specifically President Obama decided it was time to take action in Syria!  The problem l tried to get my head around, was simply after two and a half years of war that has escalated from one year to the next, it is now that the US decide to strap on their six guns and blaze into town!

We are told in hundreds of articles, it is because Syria used chemical weapons, but so far no categoric truth has been found to substantiate that claim,  recently weapons inspectors visited and collected samples, these have not yet yielded a report, so let us wait! The problem l see is that everyone that so far says we want peace ,really does not want to wait!

The idea of a Third World War that has been muted at since Jesus was on the Earth and called by many names, such as the war to end all wars,  Armageddon and the Apocalypse, this has been ever-present as many a nation decides to fight nation ,in a war of words,  simply to gain the upper hand!

Many economies were built after the war and many of the bankers that proffered were simply able to line their pockets, by supplying loans that rebuilt countries, and provided what they wanted the people to have, an economy built on consumerism, to enable them to borrow more! Always remember a “Greedy ” nation makes all the bankers happy and a lot richer!

So by giving Syria a chance to hand over their chemical weapon arsenals, thanks in the main to Putin and Russia’ s intervention, maybe able to give peace a chance, and could pull the US back from the brink of another war!

The problem is, that as war makes dollars for the war chest, what does peace do for their debts!  As war provided a way for bankers to get rich, what does peace do for them! As economies grew rich on their people’s ability to want to spend after destruction has abated ,what does being in-debt for trillions dollars, do for any economies future!

My answers came back time after time ,it does nothing for the people who want to get rich on misery and heartache, except line their pockets and make them richer! You only need to look at one family called the Rothschild’s to witness their use of the word money, even reaching into the recesses of people’s beliefs, and becoming like God’s knowing Good and Evil! Their rise was not driven by peace but by the sheer use of war as a tool to get richer, even down to manipulating the outcome of such conflicts!

So on this eve before we all remember 9/11 let us as John Lennon so aptly put it ” Give Peace A Chance ” it may not make bankers rich, or economies to be less indebted, but it will save lives, stop families being torn apart and most of all give God a chance to heal the wounds of our nations.
