And yet people are starving?

On one side of the world, people are dying because they are eating too much or rather the wrong type of food and yet, on the other side people are dying because they do not have enough food; of any type !
Add to this troubling statistic the fact that the first group do not exercise enough while the other group have to walk miles just to get some water and we soon come to the conclusion that this world is indeed a crazy place?
Then there is that evil stuff they call money. Some have it, while others don’t and the rest lust after it. Then we have countries that spend a fortune on war, elections and corruption and manufacture & distribute marvelous items that in real world do little to solve the original two problems.
Now this wonderful human race has started to do something about this sad state of affairs. Firstly, they divided into groups to explain why they eat certain foods or not.
Those that lust after food, helped along by those that lust after money and hey presto the fast food empire was built.
Then you have the Vegetarians, who have been around since the land barons ruled the world and did not allow the peasants to kill  & eat any of the wild animals on their turf by penalty of death.
Then came the Vegans, around about 1944, just about the time the world was finishing off a war to end all wars, which, by the way, left many of the protagonists worse off than their antagonists!
And finally you get the Carnivores, who really don’t give a fig, just as long as they can have a barbecue on weekends while watching their favourite sport.
One could drag this diatribe on for ever, by adding the very profitable charitable industry that has sprung up and  is now invading our TV time, but we will leave that for another day.
The original question remains.
And yet people are starving?

While the Silence Reverberates ?

Another wave of horrific terrorists led atrocities have struck in Europe.

And the world shudders in unison with its condemnations.
Our hearts weep for the victims. Will there be no end to this craven ideology?
I grew up in a country whose Apartheid ideology brought suffering to many.

The ANC led Freedom Fighters or were they terrorists too, started a campaign of activities that cost many lives.
The world united & brought an end to this & Freedom was found in the ballot box. Democracy stood firm & the majority began their rule.

Years have past & we look at the conditions in South Africa today, 2016. Atrocities have returned under a despotic led government ‘of the people’? Where ‘kill the whites’ is the lingua franca of the day.

Time for an independent inquiry?

Where are those same people who shouted in disgust during the Apartheid years?

Battle of the Sexes Revisited.

Many light years ago, a male had the gall to open up a can of worms.

Billie Jean King quickly put him in his place
Wikipedia – King is an advocate for sexual equality. In 1973, at age 29, she won the so-called Battle of the Sexes tennis match against the 55-year-old Bobby Riggs.

Now this Raymond Moore chap has done it again by bringing up the matter of “how lucky the ladies are”.
OK, so us guys are not the brightest among the tennis racket collection, but come on guys, when will we ever learn?

Now, as a male, I have no claim about being a rocket scientist, but long for the day when –
“Great news ! Equal pay for equal play – women tennis players will now play 5 sets in all tennis matches. Same as the men. No more unfair discrimination ! Next ? Open singles matches for all – say NO to gender discrimination ! Number one women’s champion to play number one men’s champion at Wimbledon this year for unified singles champion.”

Another thoughtless male is reported in saying –
“Wimbledon tickets for the 6 days when only one sex plays present cost per ticket Centre unless stated;
Mens Final -3950
Mens Semi – 3350
Mens Quarters – 2650
Mens Quarters Court 1 – 1280
Ladies Final – 925
Ladies Semi 725
Ladies Quarters 670
Ladies Quarters Court 1 – 550
Read into it what you wish but its pretty clear to me.”

I tell you what guys. We are cruising for a bruising?
