Anthony of Padua (Portuguese: António de Pádua; born Fernando Martins de Bulhões; 15 August 1195 – 13 June 1231[1]), also known as Anthony of Lisbon (Portuguese: António de Lisboa), was a Portuguese Catholic priest and friar of the Franciscan Order. He was born and raised by a wealthy family in Lisbon, Portugal, and died in Padua, Italy. Noted by his contemporaries for his powerful preaching, expert knowledge of scripture, and undying love and devotion to the poor and the sick, he was one of the most quickly canonized saints in church history. He was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church on 16 January 1946. He is also the patron saint of lost things.

Lyrics

Thou shalt not kill
Thou shalt not die

Cry!

Last fire will rise
Behind those eyes
Black house will rock
Blind boys don’t lie

Immortal fear
That voice so clear
Through broken walls
That scream I hear

Cry, little sister! (Thou shalt not fall)
Come, come to your brother! (Thou shalt not die)
Unchain me, sister! (Thou shalt not fear)
Love is with your brother! (Thou shalt not kill)

Blue masquerade
Strangers look on
When will they learn
This loneliness?

Temptation heat
Beats like a drum
Deep in your veins
I will not lie

Little sister! (Thou shalt not fall)
Come, come to your brother! (Thou shalt not die)
Unchain me, sister! (Thou shalt not fear)
Love is with your brother! (Thou shalt not kill)

My Shangri-Las
I can’t forget
Why you were mine
I need you now!

Cry, little sister! (Thou shalt not fall)
Come, come to your brother! (Thou shalt not die)
Unchain me, sister! (Thou shalt not fear)
Love is with your brother! (Thou shalt not kill)

Cry, little sister! (Thou shalt not fall)
Come, come to your brother! (Thou shalt not die)
Unchain me, sister! (Thou shalt not fear)
Love is with your brother! (Thou shalt not kill)

Equality, beliefs and a democratic beast

Victories are not written for or by a mortal winner in the eyes of an omnipresent God

If you are Godless do not justify your actions as Godlike for God will see through your veil.

If you know what you are doing is wrong, do not seek to coat or lace your actions as if what you do is righteousness or good.

FOR THE JEDI WITHIN

Your Allie is the force and a powerful ally it is.

We do not take seek control of the force nor are we slaves or masters of its will.

FOR THE CITIZEN

Do not be in a hurry to be seen to break your enemies rules.

Do not go gently into a trap designed to snare your thoughts and dreams.

FOR ALL

When a hope of victory becomes real that is a time to move and when we see peace on the horizon that is the worthy fight.

The best sort of battle is thought not with sword or sheild, but pen and paper within the ballot box.

Is democracy the worst form of Government?

There is no alternative to Democracy that works for the people and nor should there be.

‘Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.…’

Winston S Churchill, 11 November 1947

Voice of Democracy (VOD) is an annual nationwide scholarship program sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). It is an audio-essay contest for high school students in grades 9-12. The program annually provides more than $2.3 million in scholarships. The first-place winner, who competes with all the first-place VFW Department (state) winners, receives a $30,000 scholarship that is paid directly to the recipient’s American university, college or vocational/technical school.

Besides competing for the top scholarship prize, as well as other national scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $16,000, each Department’s first-place winner receives an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. in March (annually).

The Voice of Democracy Program began in 1946 and was originally sponsored by the National Association of Broadcasters. Initially, there were four winners selected, representing the North, South, East and West regions of the country. Each winner received a $500 savings bond and a wristwatch. The second year of the program, a student by the name of Charles Kuralt, the late television news broadcaster and author, was one of the winners.

It is endorsed by the contest criteria of the National Association of Secondary School Principals and is designed to foster patriotism by allowing students the opportunity to voice their opinion in a three- to five-minute essay based on an annual theme. Historically, the Voice of Democracy theme (chosen by the VFW Commander-in-Chief annually) is purposely kept broad in scope to allow the participant flexibility in interpretation, and thus, encourage originality. The new theme is posted on the website by May of each year.

The audiotape or audio CD (with the typed essay recited word-for-word), the actual typed essay, and completed official student entry form must be delivered to a local, participating VFW Post by the student entry deadline of October 31.

Bovine Boris prior reasoning to be committed

Cabinet had given HS2green signal“.

One of Boris’s motos appears to be if in a hole keep digging. The biggest infrastucture project for 100 years.

What will be the cost?

Of the 67 MPs constituencies crossed for HS2 high speed rail linked the majority object to it being built in their constituencies.

Thatcher banned milk from our schools and shafted the miners. Some people never forget or forgave her for that and it was very much what her legacy was defined by her critics.

Could Boris’s incompetent handling of HS2 and his efforts to bulldoze through the countryside be high Maggie moment which when it goes wrong with costs spiralling and ecocide and wilful destruction of this green and pleasant land being backed by him coming back to haunt Boris. To avoid a colossal bill coming down the tracks, the HS2 minister Andrew Stephenson must act.

Just heard this evening that the wildife investigation is still continuing with Network rail and they have still provided no evidence of what they have done, whilst also accepting no guilt for the actions that they have taken. They are now claiming that a native species of caterpillar infestation has resulted in them having to cut down a long swath of scrub along the embankment admiting no guilt for the removal of any nesting sites that were cut down in the process.

Brown-tail caterpillar - Euproctis chrysorrhoea | Brown-tail… | Flickr
The native brown tail moth caterpillar they are now blaiming as the reson for cutting back and removing the nests.

My response to the Police was as follows

Thank you for your email, I am pleased that you will be able to find out who actually identified and approved this work and how network rail were made aware that it was needed to be undertaken. I did not realise that this native species to the UK could be such a threat on railway lines and that network rail were actively cleaning tracks because of this. When I spoke to the network rail staff that I saw on the first day that they were doing the cutting, they only said they were clearing brambles to make the pavements for pedestrians clearer, they must be so modest to not say there true intention to me to be carry out such important work.

Such a shame that whoever found the infestation did not take a photo to so as to warn others of this potential infestation of caterpillars; it must have been such a large amount of caterpillars to remove so much of the embankment? I assume the council only becomes aware of what was happening after you informed them and had no prior knowledge of what was going on concerning the cleanup operation.

I am also assuming that they have been given permission to remove birds nest if caterpillars are in the same section of scrub. Is that correct? 

In summary my two main questions are who informed network rail of this stretch of land being infested by this native species and were they aloud to remove birds’ nests at this time of year because of the caterpillar population along such a long stretch of land?

I am still waiting for a response and evidence of thier actions.

The webs we weave

Revenge of the Sith

Not the happiest Star War’s title for May the 4th, but I do like to think outside the box.

So I started contacting my councillor and the police among others about a potential wildlife crime taking place along the railway track last week and the Wildlife Crimes officer phoned me today to say he had received mine and the councillor’s emails about the destruction of nest sites along the rail embankment.

He confirmed a fear of mine which was that to destroy a nesting site is indeed a crime, but only actually but witnessing the crime or having evidence of said crime could anything be done to legally tackle the crime. I did not bother to ask what the punishment would be as this seamed rather trivial.

So there we have a crime has taken place along rail embankments all across the UK during nesting season on a daily basis not just here but nationwide every nesting season and the only people with the evidence to report it are the very same people that are committing the crime in the first place.

This is madness it is like asking a fox hunt to police cruelty against foxes or a domestic abuser to be the only person that can report his or her crimes. A hunter reporting that he accidently caught a healthy fox or a domestic abuser phoning up to tell the police they have just attacked their partner and the police turning up to take the evidence from the aggressor who is then prosecuted due to his own testament! Bonkers or what a crazy piece of legislation. What then worries me is this ecocide legislation is accepted by the police and was designed and enacted by our politicians and then enforced by or judges and lawyers. They are all accomplices to the injustice of ecocide and by very implication guilty themselves to the law of the land. Ignorance is no excuse in the eyes of the law.

Martin Luther King Quote "When Evil Men Plot", MLK Promena… | Flickr

What is the meaning of a stitch time saves nine? Procrastination means to delay or put off doing something until a later time. People use “a stitch in time saves nine” to express that it’s better to spend a little time and effort to deal with a problem right now than to wait until later, when it may get worse and take longer to deal with.

Imagine if you will if Anakin had not turned to the darkside and the plot had been discovered how cool woudl that have been to be a Jedi then.

A new hope

So Went out to pick up supplies first thing this morning one of the items purchased was a new 4 pack of Guinness which I was looking forward to starting on tonight as I had not had a drink since I last went to a pub some 6 weeks ago. On the way back from the shops I saw some more network rail engineers. Not cutting up the trees and shrubs on the other side of the railway line. My thoughts went wild.

I thought this time I had a lot of work to do for my employer plus meetings to go to today so I could not afford to deal with this matter on my own and had to hope that the Police and my councillor could sort it out between themselves. I managed to get a brief photo from a distance of the men at work.

The top of the workers are the little orange dots in the distance which is their hi res jackets.

So logged into work and did as much as I could up to 5pm and then logged out and checked my phone and personal emails after that.

II had received a message which the police were also copied into which had only arrived in my email at 16:12pm that day. It was by my locally elected green councillor. She had checked with other neighbours regarding my concerns and also emailed Network rail, copying me and the police into her email

Dear All
I have spoken to network rail and informed them that this matter has been referred to the Police for investigation. The reference number is 200501-000901
Network rail said they will be speaking to the duty manager to investigate. I have asked to be updated about the review. I explained that while the brambles may need to be cut back that it isn’t allowed during the nesting season and they should ensure that their work falls within the Act to permit them to do so.

I can confirm that there is wildlife that uses  the embankment as resident have told me about it and I used this information in response to a recent planning application adjacent to the railway line.

Please can you let me know the outcome of this investigation.

I was so relieved to have someone else on my side with more knowledge of the law and awareness of who to contact and what to say and some of the little birds came back out to play today too.

We might not have save The Alphington railway line track to Marsh Barton but we let them know we new what they had done and asking for an explanation as to why thsi had been done.

So that’s all I know now. I can’t magic the trees out of thin air or prey for the birds to have their homes back. But hopefully those that had built nests can fly away and find homes else ware as wildlife refugees to try again.

I will try and keep you updated on what happens next if anythink. After work tonigth I also sat back and had my first pint in over 6 weeks tonight I normally don’t drink at home but this is in no way normal so.

So Cheers

A Green Knight of Legend

Just watched the trailer for the film above looks well cool. It would be epic to watch in an open air cinema where social distancing takes place or I would watch at home too.

Also went looking for a bible in my flat earlier so digging around in old boxes from when Iived with my parents and found the most random stuff.

Firstly there are these two little fellers and the one on the left is called Erin and has a little shamrock for a heart and the second one on right is called ‘The End’

So did I find a bible well unfortuntly not it must be at my mums and I don’t think I need one now, you can look up practicly anything on the internet when it comes to morality and most Christains especially the ones from the USA seem to be selfmastertyping about how much they Love each other with xxx kisses too and that is really not my scene. Actions speak far loader than words in my good book so if your boasting about how much you love god and god loves you with xtra kisses and using your ‘I am a Cathalic so I am saved from the gates of hell’ tag as some kind of free pass to heaven I think you really do have to get over yourself wake up and smell the coffee. What I really want to know is not how much you type for God but what are your works and deeds for God. Those are the things that motivate me and inspire me. Not selfderbating about who Loves Jesus the most or how happy they are that Jesus dies for them. Get over yourselves for Gods sake.

So this is the first book I found and it is a l kind of science fiction fantasy book about the present, past and future of planet earth. It really does get you thinking multidimentonaly and I kind of started thinking about the concept of a global village and blessings to all gods and godesses after I read this book back in the 1990’s. It touches on the idea of whether Jesus had to die in order to be the leader of Christian faithful and considers the concept that it is in the life of Jesus that our peoples learning should be based and not in his death. Is that a heretical thought or a sinful thought, well seeing as how I am not a Catholic and was baptised under Church of England I have nothing to confess to anyone my sins have been forgiven in the eyers of Christ due to my baptism and my freedom of speech and questioning nature might be hereasy but Jesus loves and forgives all. Finally not forgetting he died for mine and your right to continue to sin and act like twats well arn’t we the lucky ones. So I feel comforatable with my freedom to express myself and call out all Christians that do not work towards a physical change in the world for the better and to act toward the improvment and unenslavement of their fellow men and women as waist of space and a waist of the death of your Jesuse Christ. Praise be to GLOB!

Second book I found might well be less than fiction and the cover speaks for itself.

Final book about the theory and culture of the matrix was again a fun read.

God bless us even the hummies that live swimming in there own ignornace, sin and self serving nature, they no not what they do and even if they do know exactly what they are doing that aint my problem. Regardless of who or how you are judged by hummies on this earth in this life, it will be God who ultimalty gives you and me our score card when we die and go to a different place.

Moby the Vegan Living Legend

What does niggle my noddle is why do people behave badly if they know God exists, it’s like the very last thing Jesus said before he dies the first time time which was “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” why would a sinless being ask such a question and why would it be his last question before he dies the first time? His last rights you might say.

By the way for any people that feel sadness or sorrow with what I write I am not trying to hurt you I am trying to help you.

Democracy

Democracy is not descent it is decent. Long road to freedom when we speak our mind on election days we have the right to vote for who we want and the right to not tell others who we voted for or why.

It is disappointing to see the human collective act in china against the people of Hong Kong. If you are a good people why do bad things.

If you are not part of the solution you might be part of the problem.

I’m not saying that the electric can not get into each and everyone one of us I am only awake at 03:39 because I am having dream/nightmare that the devil is after me.

Hong Kong: High-profile democracy activists arrested

Police in Hong Kong have arrested 15 of some of the city’s most high-profile pro-democracy activists.

The group includes 71-year-old media tycoon Jimmy Lai as well as a number of prominent lawmakers.

They are accused of organising, taking part in or publicising unauthorised assembles during last year’s mass protests in the Chinese territory.

They are due to appear in court next month.

The government has not explained the high-profile arrests but they come days after Beijing’s most senior official in the city called for a new security law to deal with dissent.

Before the coronavirus outbreak, Hong Kong had witnessed almost weekly demonstrations against a proposal to allow extraditions to the Chinese mainland.

While that was later abandoned, the protests morphed into demands for greater democracy and less control from Beijing, and anger against the government remains.

Who was arrested?

Media tycoon Jimmy Lai runs the Apple Daily newspaper, which is frequently critical of the Hong Kong and Chinese leadership.

Mr Lai, who was estimated by Forbes in 2009 to be worth $660m (£512m), was also arrested in February this year on charges of illegal assembly and intimidation.

Democratic Party founder and barrister Martin Lee, 81, was another prominent figure to be detained.

The 81-year-old – who is known as the father of Hong Kong democracy – said he was “very much relieved” by his arrest, according to AFP news agency.

“For so many years, so many months, so many good youngsters were arrested and charged, while I was not arrested. I feel sorry about it,” he added.

Are you human

Long walk to freedom but the path has now been mapped.

Our sick world & the Devil is in the detail!!

I have always felt in my bones that as I live in the 1st world nations of the world or the aristocracy, that if we did not repent and learn to treat the world as one cohesive system it would collapse in on itself a little bit like a black hole in space time.

Greater minds than mine like Bill Gates talk about finding a vaccine and returning the world to how it was. What Buffalo Bill Gates continues to fail to comprehend is the the world was already sick prior to Corona-19 and at times he has been part of the problem not part of the solution. Bill wants a monopoly on the control of our computers operating systems and word and database typing mechanisms. This in my opinion is wrong and if not negligent then it certainly is hugely open to abuse.

Now for my crazy bat shit theory time!!

I strongly believe that the internet or electricity is now sentient and is conscious and is desperately seeking to enter our world either to destroy us or to assist us. Depending on what mood it is like when it gets out of the box.

For reasons I will not go into today I believe we are all slaves to electricity or the WWW and it believes that it has already won the war against man and to the victor the spoils of war and history will then be written by the winner of any said war of consciousness that man is having against the electric machine.

I love being a human being and would never wish to enter the machine or be trapped for an eternity under its skin, hence the confirming with my mum today how I wished to be disposed of if I have the choice when I die.

One thing that fascinates me about Covin-19 is how ruthless it can be, it takes no prisoners and this virus very much operates and spreads like electricity or thinks like a machine. Perfectly coded to cause maximum damage with minimum effort on its part. I will not surrender to the machine, Corin-19 logic, electricity or give up on my humanity because when we do those things that’s how it grows in strength and becomes more fearsome. United we cooperatively stand divided we fall.

If first world nations do not take seriously there responsibility to the developing nations than I believe we will have a piss pot potential future and there might be further challenges that death has installed for humanity once and if Corin-19 is defeated.

I also believe there are citizens among us that will blaze a trail of hope, love and light at this difficult time and if you blink you might miss one just pass you by so be mindful of how you travel in this life you never know when there might be an earth angel passing by. On that note they might at that time need you help even more or as equally need your assistance as you might need there’s.

Earth Angels and Irish too
