Thousands of protesters hit streets across the US and begin to mass outside Clarence Thomas’ home | Daily Mail Online


The prospective law changes, released in a concurring opinion Friday’s decision by the justice, would see limits put on gay marriage, same-sex activity, and citizens’ access to birth control.

===========================================

 

With the overthrow of Roe v Wade the Supreme Court have made America no longer the ‘Land of the Free’, if it ever was.

You may argue that if women don’t wish to have babies, then they should not undertake actions in which they could become pregnant, but do they really have that choice in respect of RAPE and maybe incest. If men could be able to carry an unborn baby and then give birth, then maybe abortions may not be necessary, but in those instances a rapist would need to be caught in time.

As now women are not free to live their lives as they wish to and while the abolition of abortion rights is bad enough that may not be the last actions against freedoms from this Supreme Court. For now they could move onto birth control, same sex marriage, LGBTQ rights and many more, for religion and politics have no place in dealing with legalities, but Human Rights have.

Not only is it withdrawing human rights, but are, in effect, creating situations where the health of women will be of grave risk and could be a cause of their deaths.

To do so the Supreme Court will, in many respects, be equal to the Taliban and other Islamic zealots, for Christian zealots are just as bad as Islamic zealots, if not more so.

The Supreme Court are, in effect, abusing women by withdrawing their rights, for now there is no equality in America.

Man with severe learning disabilities faces being deported to Jamaica | Home Office | The Guardian


Judge has found 34-year-old, who needs support with basic tasks, would ‘struggle to survive’ if deported

 

============================================

The Home Office is the guilty here, guilty of having no ‘Duty of Care’.

It is very evident that this man was exploited by those he was with and therefore was not guilty of any offence. In fact the Home Office should be doing all they can to retain this man in the UK and allow his family to care for him.

But, the Home office is blinkered for if he is deported they will be sending him to certain death, but I believe the Home Office has no conscience and certainly no understanding of the circumstances.

Whether this be by ignorance or design is not clear, but I fear the latter.

More than 2m adults in UK cannot afford to eat every day, survey finds | Food poverty | The Guardian


One in seven adults estimated to be food-insecure, up 57% from January, owing to rising cost of living

================================================

The cost of living crisis in the UK has been bad for sometime, but with increasing costs, food, energy to name, but 2 more and more are having major problems feeding themselves and their families and very little is being done by this Government to help those in real need.

No increase in benefits, salaries if at all rising they are not inline with inflation, so more and more people are falling into poverty, even people who are employed.

Then we have the MP, Lee Anderson, criticising people who attend food banks, by saying they don’t know how to cook meals from scratch, but at food banks people are refusing food that needs to be cooked as they can’t afford the energy costs.

This Government could do more, but is currently refusing to do so. people health will continue to deteriorate, causing more pressures on the NHS and eventually many deaths will occur.

Could it be that this government is wishing for deaths as that will reduce the welfare costs.

Alberta family struggles to find resources for autistic grandson | CTV News


Rita Fahlman loves being a grandma but says it hasn’t been easy as she fights for help to support her autistic grandson who has complex needs.

Here we have Canada, but it is also just as bad in the UK, perhaps even more so for some.

Is there anywhere in this world where persons with disabilities, expressly learning (Intellectual) disability and autism are looked after sufficiently, I fear not and in some countries not only is there no services, but persons with these disabilities are even seriously discriminated against to the point of even causing deaths.

Why is this for no one asks to be born this way, but they should expect to be able to live life, at least, reasonably without fear. It is the responsibility of everyone to do all they can to ensure discrimination is countered wherever it occurs and every ruling body should legislate to ensure full equality is available for everyone.

Abuse of any nature should never be tolerated and those who do abuse should be always dealt with accordingly. Remember there are many forms of abuse and not having sufficient required and appropriate legislation should be included as a form of abuse. Abuse is done to anyone be they be a child or an adult and anyone can be an abuser, be it a family member, friend, stranger, professional, etc.

By not having sufficient, appropriate  and required legislation is restricting their Human Rights and could be, in effect allowing abuse to occur.

Poor People Can’t Cook Says Lee Anderson MP – The poor side of life


Lee Anderson Tory MP for Ashfield claimed that households in Britain can make nutritious meals on a budget of about 30p a day. He made these crass remarks during the queens speech debate in parliam…

============================================

So true and well said.

In every generalisation there is a ring of truth, but also untruth, as everyone is different so no one person is the same as another,

Within life there are so many factors which need to be taken into account, but no one, especially in a so called, developed, civilised society should be made to live below the ‘poverty line’ and then be criticised for doing so.

Unfortunately MPs of any party fail to understand, some more than others that peoples lives are different.

Where possible people should be allowed to make choices so the use of ‘mandatory’ should not be something to use and be seen as a good action as it is restricting the freedoms many fought to achieve. We are supposedly not living under a dictatorship, but the likes of Lee Anderson Tory MP appears to believe it is right to do so and sees no wrong in putting people in mandatory situations.

Guests walk out of Scottish Football awards ceremony over ‘sexist, racist and homophobic jokes’  | Daily Mail Online


BBC presenter Eilidh Barbour led a walkout at the Scottish Football Writers’ Association (SFWA) awards in Glasgow over ‘sexist and racist’ jokes made by a keynote speaker.

============================================

Good on Eilidh on her action and all the others who walked out for the time is long gone when ‘sexist, racist and homophobic’ jokes should be made anywhere and the time should never have existed.

Infact, I feel the keynote speaker should be prosecuted for making such jokes, as until the authorities take this seriously people will continue to do as they please and ‘lessons will never be learnt’.

More prosecutions need to be made to ensure abusive jokes are being curtailed and thereby make life better for all concerned, perhaps, even the venue and the organisers of the event should also be prosecuted.

If, these so called ‘jokers’ can only raise laughs by creating abuse then they should not be around.

Everyone has the Right to lead a life free from abuse.

Eilidh’s action is a far better way to deal with these abusive people than follow the example of Will Smith at the Oscars, a walkout rather than a slap, much better result. But a prosecutive would be even better.

As the US supreme court moves to end abortion, is America still a free country? | Moira Donegan | The Guardian


There is no condition more essential to democratic citizenship than a person’s control over her own body. We can’t call ourselves a free country without it

============================================

The supposed ‘land of the free,’ but if Roe v Wade is abolished it will be a mockery of being free, for free it will not be, that is, unless you abide with all the religious fanatics, many of whom go under the banner of being ‘Republicans’.
It is wrong that the US justice system is so geared around religion than the rights of people to live their own lives.
America is so not free and those saying it is are just fooling themselves.
Those who wish to abolish abortion have no regards for those who wish to have an abortion.
Why anyone wants to live in America is a mystery as the whole environment appears to revolve around death.
The gun laws, the police, the courts, the health system, there is no free in America.

Advocates call for increase to disability support payments | The Star


“I am constantly made to feel like a second-class citizen,” said Michael Iacovone, a 32-year-old university student with spina bifida.

============================================

No matter where in the world you are you should be entitled to human Rights, but the degree of entitlement will depend on which country the person resides and in some countries the standing of the person in those countries.

Where a person has disabilities, whether from birth or acquired  there may be some restrictions on Human Rights available when there should not be, but there is also the question of equality, which again will be dependent on the country of residence and maybe the standing of the person within those countries.

But equality could have a cost factor and whether this should be borne by each individual or via benefits provided by the respective countries.

If these costs are not fully made available or even at all, will have a great effect on the ability of the person with disabilities to live their lives, even to a reasonable capacity.

In many respects it was not a choice of the person to have a disability or disabilities and if the costs are not met this will have a great impact on their ability to live their lives with any degree of good or reasonable quality.

Is it right for anyone to be made to feel they are a ‘second class citizen’ or even worse. I feel not as it is not showing the respect that they deserve. and is actively showing disrespect, which is effectively denying them their Human Rights and could be seen as some form of abuse.

German employers and unions unite to oppose EU Russian gas boycott | Euronews


German bosses and unions have opposed a ban on Russian gas imports by the EU, claiming it will cause job losses and factory closures.

============================================

So, much for European unity or is that only EU, but not much over the years for Greece. So, is Germany a law until itself or is it just Germany and France, for it is reported that they continued, during the 2014 invasion of Crimea, to supply some armaments to Russia, even though there was an EU-wide arms embargo.

So, it is not just the importing of Russiam gas, but that Germany comes first, irrespective of War Crimes committed and continuing to be committed to be continuing by Russia against innocent Ukrainian civilians and destructions of Ukrainian hospitals, schools, etc and also executions of Ukrainians.

Liz Carr Calls For Theatres To Host Facemask-Only Performances | Same Difference


Actress Liz Carr has suggested theatres consider hosting separate performances of shows for audiences who still want to wear facemasks or socially distance. The Silent Witness star won best support…

===========================================

I completely agree with this suggestion and not only for Theatres for there are many, especially those auto-immune, needle averse and more people, so surely they too should be able to enjoy life more, rather than still stay at home.

But was the withdrawal of the facemasks mandate wholly due to the vaccine success, which is currently on the wane, as people believe COVID is no more, or is it really a Government or Boris ploy to offer something to the public to put him in a better light and detract from No. 10 Parties, in other words a PR exercise.

It is after all just how devious he is.

As to COVID, it has certainly not gone as hospital admissions show and the belief it has gone and no facemasks and even social distancing is a way that this highly contagious COVID virus is being spread.

Yes, it is milder than previous variants, but another variant could be easily the reverse and while being mild it has no baring on the effects of ‘Long COVID’, which can be and is very serious and can be very long term.

Do not believe the Government hype and still be very extremely careful.
