Trump for good or Bad?

Being an avid ready of alternative groups ( working on the theory that the mainstream media lies to us all the time) like “The Conservative Treehouse” who predicted back in March the rise and subsequent election of Trump by a strong margin, I put a bet on that he would win. Its nice to beat the bookies.

I wonder what would have happened if I turned up to get my winnings and the bookie says I get nothing! He says that although I picked the right person he is not going to pay because he is changing the rules…….? So now I lose because he has changed the rules. Crazy eh? What would YOU do?

This week has seen demonstrators out for their fourth night on the streets. There were protests in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Kansas City, Chicago and Washington DC and violence in Portland.

Most of the protestors seem to be young college students with BLM and Gays rights being thrown in for good measure. These young people are backed up by those in the news that were swearing they would leave the USA for good if Trump were voted in, and those same actresses, actors, comedians, are now subject to a poll on RT  as to whether they should be FORCED to leave as they were so outspoken.

It is sad that people in the news would interfere in the voting process at all. To state how they would vote I see as being legitimate, to actively try to persuade by using your popularity seems to be bad form.

To not carry out your threat to leave seems worse still. The least that Robert, Barbara and the like could do is carry out their threat, but instead dismiss it as a joke.

Its only a joke when people laugh, and riots are no laughing matter!

We all need a Hero!

Last night I watched ‘Jack the Giant Slayer’ an enjoyable movie that bares all the hall marks of a successful film.

A guy from humble beginnings without education or a future, trades a horse for some beans. Getting chastised by his guardian for being a fool, but catching the eye of the beautiful Princess, whom he later eventually wins on the basis of his prowess in battle with an ability to eventually beat the giants.

This a new take on an old theme of Jack and the beanstalk, replacing the old theme with a slightly different story line, together with some excellent animations.

But this particular story is adapted from much older stories, who I have no doubt were all adapted from one single author only to be converted into many languages using their local heroes and heroines.

In most languages (and religions) the Messiah was to be a saviour or liberator of people, and generally the saviour of those the author was part of, with the notion living on because of the connection to his own people.

Most races have this saviour carefully adapted to reflect their local conditions, and the names of course being promoted to cement the local guy into history.

Jesus was said to be the messiah, coming from humble beginnings to rid the world of evil and to eventually point the direction humanity must go, even to the extent that he would be sacrificed as a good hero might. Although paying the supreme sacrifice he will return in time to save us by defeating the antichrist or false Messiah.

The Qur’an states that Isa, the Son of Mariam (Arabic: Isa ibn Maryam), is the Messiah and Prophet sent to the Children of Israel.[Quran 3:45] Muslims believe Isa is alive in Heaven and will return to Earth to defeat the Masih ad-Dajjal (false Messiah),[6] a figure similar to the Antichrist in Christianity, who will emerge shortly before him before Yawm al-Qiyāmah (“the Day of Resurrection”).

How about Spartacus as a hero of humble beginnings that defeated his masters to become a great leader. True he died, but sometimes even the hero is required for the supreme sacrifice.

Moses was another of humble birth being delivered in a basket of reeds to his adopted mother to save him from a purge of infant children, eventually finding him to be the leader of men and saving a race.

In historical biblical times the hero was never averse to killing, murdering many people as long as it was in the name of justice.

A sort of olden day Arnie (Terminator) or perhaps Charles ( Death Wish). You might also pick Mel (Mad Max)

There is no shortage of heroes. In the UK we have Robin Hood, who faced with the bad sheriff defending the right of the poor against impossible odds. The popularity of Mel (again) as the Scottish landowners son (William Wallace) who after his humble beginnings once again rises to be the leader or messiah.

One thing is for sure……. we  all need a Hero!

Out with the Old……..

Party hats and bells and whistles.

Last night of the year, and what do I do?…….celebrate in style……ending up in, of all places, a Karaoke bar….LOL. I listened to bad singers, and others making a statement, as we sort of welcomed in the new while saying good bye to the old.

I missed absent family, and friends, babies and adults, and reminisce of those good times that have been had, smiling to myself that I have, in my life had many more good times than bad.

I got to thinking that worldly stuff of all the trials and tribulations that seem to be never ending in the world.

Wars that drag on, and the hands of friendship offered on an international scale that have all the hallmarks of actually achieving some peace instead of creating a war.

Deciding that all Leaders time after time make the same mistakes as their predecessor, because of all things, you cant put an old experienced head on new shoulders, so the inevitable mistakes occur, over and over again.

So where are we on the humanitarian scale this year?

For me these hands of friendship reaching out internationally, and the small step back from nuclear proliferation, awareness of a potential global warming (even though there is great debate of its evidence) the celebrations of people with a conscience, marred by the parting of some of those notables that made a difference, makes me optimistic for the future.

So whatever your take on the past year, whatever you have been doing, we can all look to clearing the slate and take the 1st of January 2014 as an opportunity to change to refocus our goals. If you did not make it last year……….. make it this 2014.
