The American 1st Amendment

I am sick of people using the 1st Amendment as a reason to fight for or against Donald J Trump. "The First Amendment  provides that Congress make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting its free exercise. It protects freedom of speech, the press, assembly, and the right to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." So let's take this one step at a time. The 1st Amendment says that CONGRESS MAKE NO LAW to hurt free speech. The last time I checked Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram were not Congress. If there has been another election where the social media platforms have been voted into Congress I will listen. Unless your Constitution has a law that tells private companies they can't block any form of speech, you have nothing to stand on. As Judge Judy would say, your founding fathers "memorialized" your basic rights. You do not have a right under the constitution to have a Twitter account. Unfortunately for you people claiming

USA NOT OK

I am horrified by what I witnessed this week coming from the United States of America but to be honest I am and not surprised at all.  Donald Trump, and no I will not call him President Trump because he has forfeited that respect through his actions, held a rally and used language that inspired and violent attempt at taking democracy away. For those who do not know why this happened it is simple, he lost the last election.  The way that the elections work is that there is an initial election but the result has to be ratified before the president-elect can take over. Donald Trump lost the election and in a bid to steal the rightly appointed candidates win, insighted a violent siege on the capitol. This siege left 5 people dead. This behaviour is unprofessional and should not have happened and yet Donald Trump and many Republican politicians have defended this and jumped on to the bandwagon of "the election was stolen".  So here are my thoughts; 1) Any Republican who was dumb e

People with Autism get a bad rap but....

Ok, I have to write this post. Since Biden has reached 270 before Trump and instead of conceding gracefully, he is throwing his toys out of the pram. Now I look at this and see many people supporting his tantrum and these same people would probably give someone with autism a bad rap for meltdowns. I can see the next step will be to try and save face he would be claiming his reaction was due to an autistic meltdown. If you are supporting the ravings of a man who is literally throwing his toys out of the pram please look at the reality of what you are supporting. He claimed "stop the count" yet, his numbers went up from 214 to 232. If the count had been stopped how many of you YOUR votes would not have been counted? Be realistic! It is important to remember democracy is something that is fluid. It is important for you to remember that every vote in a democracy counts. If Donald Trump did not win the election it is because people decided that they did not want 4 more years of st

Im Calling You Out

Dear President Trump, At the beginning of your Presidency I used to think, you are rough around the edges but behind the divisive words you were using, you had the making for some legitimate and promising policies especially around immigration. The respect I had for you in the beginning has now dwindled to nothing. You have been racist! You have been down right disrespectful to politicians in my country to the point your own citizens were apologising for your behaviour! You have made ignorant and down right unconscionable choices and have gotten even worse with COVID. So now I am calling you out!! The USA has the highest death rate in the world according to the WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION. That is the highest death rate in the WORLD.  You have the highest death rate then even Mexico and yet, you decide that you can flaunt the need to social distance, to wear masks, and to fund your medical professionals and provide them with the PPE. In fact, just to put this into perspective UK citizens
