some points of view and my own angry as usual rant cos libs drive me up the wall

A couple of notes of interest I found on the letters page.

CLUELESS TEACHERS

It’s time general knowledge was added to the school curriculum.
As an old geezer, I watch many quiz programmes on which the ignorance of some of today’s teachers is beyond belief.
Recent examples have included: 

Q. What was the Fighting Temeraire?
A. A racehorse (wrong)

Q. Which English queen’s face appeared on the first postage stamp?
A. Elizabeth 1 (wrong)

Q. Who was the first president of the USA?

A. JFK

In each case, the excuse given by the teachers was that these subjects weren’t on the agenda when they were at school.

God Help the children of the future.

A LESSON FROM INDIA

The father of an immigrant family told me he was sending his teenage daughter back to India to finish her education.
I asked him if she was going to learn more about her culture, but he said no, she was going to school in India to learn “proper” English.
He said the education system set up by the British still taught Oxford English.
A pity our schools don’t.

K. Jennings, Cardiff

And from the world of Loony Tune economics as approved by progressives and lefties and a possibly a few soft hearted cons as well ….  comes this insanity.

It’s been published (or where could I have gotten a figure like this?) that the national debt of the UK is approaching £1.65 trillion.  Sheesh.  How many zeros is that?
The govt. is looking at spending cuts of 55 billion required in the next Parliament to balance the budget.  Hang in here with me … it gets interesting about this point.

The outta touch powers that be who run this place, have voted to enshrine in law, a commitment to spend .7 per cent of national income on (more) overseas aid.
Wait … we aren’t finished with this self financial flagellation yet.
Flagellation must always include insult too and here it is.

A further £1 billion is going to be added to the £12 billion allocated to foreign aid, which is so swollen reports the Daily Mail, that the department responsible struggles to spend it all.  Huh?  That’s what the papers say.
But hey people …. look at it this way.  Although this country spends a billion EVERY MONTH overseas ….

At least it’s all politically correct so that’s alright then.

And finally to end this for the evening for me this bit of news none of you are aware of. Don’t we wish?

The rest of the news is all about that racist America where more blacks are in jail then in school or jobs.  Where white cops are having a filed day shooting blacks for fun and no profit.  One libtard writer reports that one poor teen was shot dead by a cop who was declared not fit back in 2012, and the poor dead Negro was only holding a fake gun yet the cop shot him anyway.  She knows damn well fake guns of that type have a colored tip of some kind to ID them as not real guns. The bitch knows that but omitted it from her column. Typical. The way the nasty slag wrote tho, he was shot cos he was black.  Nobody writes about the fractions of seconds a cop has to decide if his life is on the line.  Oh yeah, and then we’re back to that Trayvon kid whose spelling I think I have wrong but who cares?  She ID’s the guy who shot him as a cop also.  I didn’t even read the entire column.  I just really wanna outlive the bitch.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
