NEWCHURCH - Glad you took time out to refresh and review the best IMO of last years amazing singers. ONLY music has the power to unite. "The universal language of mankind "- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. "Where words leave off, music begins" - Heinrich Heine ATB
Troajan - that's mania for you. Kinda like the stock market.
You see like gold, it takes EFFORT to mine the rare metal, which in turn gives it value. Bit like me nicking daffs, effort to get up 01:00, grab the scissors, tip toe up and down next doors garden, can't see jackshite, but manage to cut myself a decent bunch of daffodils. See what i mean? EFFORT! Back indoors, put the clocks forward and make a brew. No immigrants involved ect. Was taught all this stuff when i was a kid...lol
Cathsoames, thanks for reply regarding Muslim fund for victims. I and most others know, that the majority are likely to be appalled by such actions.
Yet I still truly believe, as it would seem airlines do, in their recent ban on large electronic devices from at risk nations, that some people from Muslim lands are a threat to be taken seriously, and, sadly a threat that is not likely to lessen over time.
To my simplistic thinking, the less people from such lands, the less risk to our own people. I share this view with President Trump, who, many would say is proof of its idiocy, as, he too is unpopular by many, YET, and this must be remembered, he is popular by the majority.
He was not a wolf in sheep's clothing, no Jeke and Hyde, and clearly spoke his views 'before' he was elected in a democratic way. If he had changed views 'after' becoming President, that would be different.
Problem we have on this bb and the world, is what we think is acceptable for someone to criticise in others, no one is blaming an entire race. There are no all good, or all bad races. I know you hate my examples, using them against me, but it is the only Orewellian way to explain what I mean. Thus, the Government banned certain breeds of dogs, yet the owners of such swear, and in many cases rightly so, that their one wouldn't harm a fly.
Sometimes the risk is too great. Not saying we are at the U.S's stage, and I don't think it will work anyway, just saying that less people, to me, means less risk. Is it a price worth paying, that I don't know, but as the UK is nothing like Muslim homelands, and there is a large world out there, seems a strange choice to me, for them to wish to come to a non Muslim country, knowing that their beliefs are 'so' important.
Turn the other cheek, and love thy enemy is a noble statement in Church, but look at the suffering the poor Jews endured by being (with little choice) passive. Look how the world would be, if Britain had ignored the Nazi take over of each country. We tried talking, reasoning, but sometimes it is not enough.
Re Jo Cox, we have to respect he relatives views, and whatever gives them comfort, but to me, it is not the way I would feel.
As you know, we are all different, and I wish we could discuss issues, rather than turn it all nasty, as it is the only way to find common ground.
As I said, respect your views on my earlier posts.
