Essential Tremors My Story

Due to my diagnosis of Essential Tremors I am no longer able to work properly and so have been placed on a disability benefit. Although this takes away the anxiety of looking for work and having to continually explain why I shake the stigma remains.

Everyday living is a challenge, I struggle to write and at times even typing can be frustrating. Eating and drinking has to be carefully planned bathroom/toilet activities take longer and can be embarrassing. My love for cooking has been tempered, my wife stresses when I am using a knife. I have learnt to ask for help which can be annoying for me due to be never having to rely on people as much as I now have to.

All I can do is accept my condition and do the best that I can. I improvise, overcome and adapt to every situation I am faced with. Fortunately I have a very supportive wife an understanding doctor.

I am sure there are people out there with worse tremors than I have and may not have the support that I do so I am sharing my thoughts in the hope that it helps others or even if it reminds those that have tremors you are not alone.

Immigrants Refugees from Europe Africa and Asia

A friend of mine, George Stephens commented on my post about Multiculturalism doesn't work reminding me of the days when immigrants/refugees from Europe, Africa, Asia ventured to all parts of the world, bringing with them different cuisines, knowledge and a diverse range of ideas and ideals and more importantly they were prepared to become part of their new country.

Using George’s words: - People come here (and there as well I imagine) and want others to bend over backward to accommodate them rather than become part of the melting pot and adapt to their new home. It is a shame really because life is much more interesting when we can all get along and enjoy each others ways rather than this constant clash of cultures so common today.

It really is a sad world we live in when immigrants ostrasize them selves from their new home.

Multiculturalism doesn't work

Multiculturalism isn’t working and it will never work because multiculturalism is a slow death to the host culture.

Where ever you go, no matter the country when another culture enters they don’t blend in and mix they set about creating their own communities and start living the life they lived before.

They create pockets within suburbs branching out into businesses and slowly take over the area they are in. I am not saying it is a bad thing but I don’t think it is healthy for a country as a whole. It isolates communities and creates false prejudices and/or racial profiling.

These communities then stop all attempts to integrate; from learning the countries language to working only with their own kind and in extreme cases ignoring the laws of the land.

This is the world we now live in  and it is moving back to the tribe mentality we once had all those centuries ago.

Racist Trump and Political Correctness

A racist is by definition a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another or having or showing the belief that a particular race is superior to another.

There are those that band the word around as if it were a regular thing to call someone.

Mr Trump for example has been branded a racist for highlighting a judge’s ethnicity which could have a conflict of interest in a court case.
That is not being racist it is clearly suggesting there could be a conflict of interest.

Of course calling someone a racist is a blatant cheap shot by people who do not have the confidence to see an opposite viewpoint that differs from their own.

The word we live is being defiled by radical religion and politically correct nonsense with people too scared to voice their opinions thus allowing the minority to rule the roost.

This needs to change so we can get back some of our normality

The Trouble with Trump

There has for a long time been an under current of fury at being unable to express  emotions that are kept hidden due to a world that demands we keep our thoughts and beliefs to ourselves.

We are not suppose to express our opinions for fear of offending some one or worse we fear being bullied by attention seeking people who take anything to another level ranting and raving about whatever they can to belittle someone who has a differing opinion.

Donald Trump is someone who is bringing the bubbling under current of resentment to the surface. His stand on certain issues infuriates some yet pleases others.

Whether you love or hate him the man has given the American people something to think about.

Trumps lets just get on with it attitude, lets make America great again slogan certainly appeals to many Americans who are tired of the same old establishments broken promises and incompetence.

As an outsider here in New Zealand I am amused at the lack of understanding concerning what Trump is trying to do. America was a country that was once looked up to but now is seen as the butt of a joke.

Those that fear Trump, fear change yet change is needed otherwise if you always do what you always done, you will always get what you always got.

Come November 2016 America will either change or remain in a cesspool of corruption and debt.

Memorial Day Do we remember anything?

It has been simmering under the surface for a very long time and now it is starting to raise its head. The burning resentment of having your rights and beliefs stripped away.

British people in Britain having a few beers are attacked at a hotel by followers of Islam. In Germany a petition to cancel the Oktoberfest because it is insulting and anti-Islamic while offensive to Muslims all over the world has increased tensions and it is a clear indication of how Muslims are taking over the west.

Donald Trump has only brought up what most people are thinking. How can refugees get free health care and other benefits while Americans, British and German residents have to struggle?

Here in New Zealand we have a political correct society that is so PC that if one dares to step out of line one is shamed and bullied into submission.

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, politicians, and do-gooders which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

People are now starting to realise that minority groups have way to much say in how countries are run and what is acceptable and what is not.

Our countries and their foundations are being eroded away by our constant need to appease others. Those that fought and died for our freedoms and rights would be bitterly disappointed in us.

Mike Hosking and his opinion

Once more the attention seeking twats are out, complaining over the opinion of Mike Hosking comments on Maori on councils.

Here is what he said:- "There's nothing wrong with Maori representation on councils because any Maori that wants to stand for a council is more than welcome to do so and you can sell your message and if you're good enough you'll get voted on."

These words have outraged some in the community who have nothing better to do than air their beliefs calling for these offensive racist comments to be dealt with to the full extent of the law. These attention seekers wanting Mr Hosking to be hung drawn and quartered for having an opinion that most people think but won’t say.

This is the PC world of New Zealand living in the past not moving with the future in mind.
