Scottish Legend Lou Macari outraged at £16,000 bill for 9 hour USA Hospital stay

JS46171441

Luigi “Lou” Macari is a Scottish former footballer and football manager. He played for Celtic, Manchester United and Swindon Town and was the manager of Swindon, West Ham United, Birmingham City, Stoke City, Celtic and Huddersfield Town. He was portrayed in a movie Marvellous last year by Tony Curran, in the UK he is a legend as a football player, for people in other parts of the World who don’t know the man, he has a strong opinions. Below are his Tweets and also some tweets at the foot of the page. FOR ANY SCOTTISH PERSON!!! Who moans about waiting half an hour in a Hospital or a Dr’s office, please understand how bad the USA Medical Health System really is, the USA have the worst Healthcare system out of ALL G20 Members. The G20 is made up of the finance ministers and central bank governors of 19 countries: The first 18 here have way better Health Care than the USA!! Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States of America. When you read it like that, it’s no wonder Lou is annoyed, I know American’s who live pay cheque to paycheque

America you ain’t Independent, why celebrate a Big Brother state? <Click) This Scotland is what we are trying to free ourselves from, the USA are very hard on their people, only the ones who feel it see it, thankfully some can still go to the movies and live, sadly well over 50% of American people are on the bread line, very poor! Scotland take note and stop complaining about the NHS, this is of course you do complain, I have seen people complain and I shake my head because like Lou now, he understands how precious the NHS is here in Scotland.

SCOTLAND legend Lou Macari has warned against privatising the NHS after a shocking £16,475 visit to hospital in America.

The football pundit had a terrifying insight into the crippling cost of US health care after falling ill while commentating on a Manchester United pre-season tour.

The gobsmacking bill for just nine hours of treatment at the O’Connor hospital in San Francisco included £3,416 for a room – despite the fact Macari didn’t even stay overnight – and £10,079 for two scans which failed to diagnose bleeding behind his eye. And the former Scotland and Manchester United has told how the experience opened his eyes to the importance of the NHS.

He said: “I was in hospital for stomach cramps and sickness one day for four hours, and then for five hours the next day after I lost vision in one of my eyes. “The treatment I received was fine, but the cost of the health care over there is just unbelievable. “It was the first time I have really appreciated just how important the system we have in the UK is, and why we must make sure that it stays the way it is.

“I can’t imagine the effect receiving a bill like that could have on someone vulnerable or elderly or who just can’t pay for whatever reason. “At the end of the day I am covered by insurance, and I would have got it sorted out one way or the other, but not everyone is in that position.”

Macari was first struck down with stomach cramps and sickness on July 25 and had to visit the O’Connor hospital in San Jose – missing the Manchester United v Barcelona match in the Levis’ Stadium.

He was released after tests that showed no significant illness, but then returned the next day after losing vision in one eye. This time around he was given a head and back scan which again didn’t show any serious ailment. It was only after he visited a separate eye specialist recommended by a Manchester United doctor that bleeding behind the eye – brought on by the strain of being sick the day before – was diagnosed.

Macari added: “The treatment at the O’Connor hospital was fine, even though it wasn’t until I went to see a separate specialist that the problem was diagnosed. “It doesn’t look like anything serious and my eye has been getting better every day. “But it is quite shocking when you see just how much people are being charged over there for health care. “I didn’t even stay overnight and I was charged thousands of dollars for a room, it is incredible. “It is important that the people in charge in this country understand just how bad the American system is compared to ours. “We are always running down the Scottish Health System, but what a wonderful thing it is.”

Macari took to Twitter after receiving his American hospital bill.

He Tweeted: “Neck scan $5918.00  Head scan $9789  Room $5324.00. Total without medication $21,031. This must never happen in the UK.” He continued. Earlier, he had posted a picture of the total bill he received for $25,671, along with the message: “Two days and no overnight stay in US hospital. 1st day 4hrs, 2nd day 5hrs. Our #NHS – best service in the world!”

Americans pay a fortune for private health care insurance, and those without cover are often left without care or hit with an enormous bill.

MORE PROOF – Palestine Testing Ground For Oppression by Israel – 2,500th post

Another Israeli Soldier Speaks the truth we all know anyway..Well most

Another Israeli Soldier Speaks the truth we all know anyway..Well most

As a kid at School seen it on our TV’s, I read it and I was told it. The Holocaust where 6 Million Jewish people died, being so young you just took the information in and then went home, then a point in all our lives happen when we see what we seen as more, we come of age where we feel what happened. One movie I love to watch is Schindler’s List, the story of a HUMAN with a HEART. That is all Oskar Schindler was, a human soul seeing something he hated so he tried to help. If you have seen it I ask you remind your soul of historical facts when he left them at the end of the war. I never ask people to believe anything I write I always say “Research on your own” People get offended when others say “The Holocaust was a lie” and I am one of them to get offended, no hate, just offended, the proof is there, people see THAT PROOF. But people who deny the murder and almost holocaust or genocide happening in Palestine EVERY DAY are reading their version of truth from an old book. People too scared to see the truth, holding a book tight. I ask simply! In who’s name do you think and speak? Your own or a guess? Because I can prove my story, you can’t prove yours. That ladies and gent’s is just the truth. May you all find happiness in a World full of ignorance and lies standing behind a God, be that God Islamic, Catholic or Christian. I can’t hate, I refuse to hate. But let me tell you, it is hard to keep this stance, but I will. In my final breath I won’t hate. Some people are just born #Different right?

An Israeli Soldier’s Story – Eran Efrati
VIDEO Via argusfest on You Tube

An Israeli soldier has come forward to speak out about his experiences of working for the IDF, and specifically about how Palestine is being used as a testing ground for “human oppression”. 

Eran Efrati enlisted in the IDF after graduating high school, but was discharged in 2009 where he soon joined Breaking the Silence – a group set-up to raise awareness about the atrocities committed by the IDF in the occupied territories.

Uprooted Palestinians reports:

He worked as the chief investigator of the organization, collecting testimonies from IDF soldiers about their activities. He also guided political tours and to the West Bank and worked to educate Israeli youth about the reality of being a soldier in an occupying army. His collected testimonies appear in the booklet “Operation Cast Lead” and their most recent release “Our Harsh Logic”. Since leaving Breaking the Silence, his investigative reports appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Guardian.

Why Glasgow Celtic Signed Tom Rogic

hqdefault

Nike Academy Product Tom Rogic

Spend the last few days watching this kids rise to fame, playing and beating Brazil and winning his move to Celtic and all in-between, his story is what most of our dreams were as young boys wanting to play for Celtic. I know most Celtic fan’s know he won ‘The Chance and was given a place in the Nike Academy. He then played 1 season with Central Coast Mariners playing 24 games, scoring 5 with a healthy 18 assists in that season. January 2013 and Neil Lennon and John Park seen something in a young Australian guy and get the kid in the door. Loaned out to Melbourne Victory for season 2014/2015 only to return injured he sat and watched as Neil Lennon left and Ronny arrived probably like every player thinking “Will I get a chance” We only have to look at Nir Bitton to know Ronny will play the best 11 he has available to them. Man of the Match at the weekend away to Dundee United and we are slowly seeing a young man turn into a man. Lets hope this story keeps going, enjoy Tom’s start. Even his Aussie mate Ryan McGowan rates the kid. Enjoy meeting Tom a little bit more, he is a very relaxed confident kid.

A Journalist’s Report On The Nike Academy, Tom Rogic and “The Chance”<Click)

This is a fascinating interview. We speak to the journalist, Aidan Ormond, who works as a freelance for the excellent Football magazine, FourFourTwo (http://au.fourfourtwo.com/). Aidan was invited by Nike to become “embedded” with the “The Chance” and cover the progress of the Australian players. Aidan had a lot of time to observe the entire process at close range and he shares his observations with the NPL. There just has to be a good movie or min-series script in this story!

A part of Toms development

The journey this kid took is stunning to say the least, only in the last few month have Celtic fans said “Here, there might be a player here” And from what I have been researching we certainly do have a superb player here who can go all the way to the top. The video below is I guess the reason Celtic signed Tom, this kid who is still 23 years old had a bad injury last season and is now almost where Ronny would want a player to be fitness wise, I expect a contract extension for the kid in the next 6 months, I truly think Ronny’s ability with young players will make Rogic a mainstay in the Celtic 11 in seasons to come. Above and below are a few links and video’s, maybe people who didn’t know his story will like this more but I knew, and I still enjoyed this. We have a player here, no argument

The Chance has helped to develop the talents of thousands of young footballers. For one player, it’s been the stepping stone to a professional career, earning a contract with one of Europe’s elite clubs. Today he’s living the dream of every young player. Tom Rogic, a talented Australian midfielder, arrived in the U.K. to take part in The Chance 2011. Since that day, it’s been a whirlwind rise to fame. A journey thats taken him to A-League outfit Central Coast Mariners, all the way to Scottish giants Celtic.

Scotland: Rabbie Burns the Musical is off to Broadway

robert_burns_the_musical-2

Should be “Rabbie Burns” But ‘Robert’?

Robert Burns born 25 January 1759, died 21 July 1796. Scotland’s favourite son, the Ploughman Poet, Robden of Solway Firth, the Bard of Ayrshire and in Scotland as The Bard, as we know here was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide. He is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, although much of his writing is also in English and a light Scots dialect, accessible to an audience beyond Scotland. He also wrote in standard English, and in these writings his political or civil commentary is often at its bluntest.

The very table Rabbie wrote on in the Museum http://www.burnsmuseum.org.uk/before-you-visit/essentials

The very table Rabbie wrote on in the Museum http://www.burnsmuseum.org.uk/before-you-visit/essentials

Got most of that from a website but this is brilliant news for Scotland and Poetry! I grew up with a Grandparent and other older people speaking Rabbie tongue, quoting him and spoke like him often, an era of people who had the older Scottish tongue or a liking for all things older Scottish, same as any old Lady who is proud of where she lives on Earth and her tradition and culture. This is about a man born in Ayr, Alloway, Ayrshire, Scotland. He became a global superstar now more so with more tourism and of course the internet, also any poet on Earth worth their salt know’s ‘Rabbie Burns’, in 1886 he borrowed a horse and set out for a life in the big city of Edinburgh, yeah same City as I live :D All Edinburgh kids know and can speak some poems, same as other kids all over Scotland, we are taught about him in our Education, always have and did when I was a kid and still does happen, not every day but you learn classes like History, same as any person from any Culture is taught about amazing people from their culture throughout their Countries history, any country!

Reason I say this is often when I type about ‘Scotland people putside Scotland get offended as if I am saying “Scotland Rules, the rest of the World are fools” And it makes me laugh I guess, so here I am mentioning it :-) Some people around the World get real offended really quickly, not the Scottish way, well not what I see in Scotland, so it’s important to know if you are from foreign shores and I talk about Scotland, I am not saying “We are the best, you are nothing” Sad people actually do really think this way and give me abuse for being proud of where I am from!! :D WHAT IS THIS? :D I am sorry I had to mention this, people need to get a grip! People get offended over the smallest issues, writing to the World you realize over time some Cultures are very paranoid and strange, but please! Turn the coin around and it is 1% of the Internet for me, here is where we can debate and share and learn as well as have fun. 99% of the Internet is amazing, it’s a technology allowing people who can’t travel the World to at least know the World outside their own borders, it creates friendship and love and it is expression. SO!! I guess Social Media is the ‘Rabbie Burn’s version of Social Media! He was expressing himself and learning Hundreds of years ago here in my City, the internet is such an amazing place, so ironic as it may seem, the very nature of expression and learning started with people like Rabbie Burns. Your Culture has one too!! In-fact ALL Cultures have a Rabbie Burns type person, it’s called ‘Earth’s History’ or something.. :D

I am now 40 ish years old and can quote a few lines from ‘Rab’ but my 6 year old Daughter can quote more as she is 2 years into school on the back of 2 years in nursery. Changed days from Rabbie’s for sure!! :D :D

IT a 21st century retelling of the story of Scotland’s most famous poet, starring a cast of unknown home-grown actors. Now Robert Burns The Musical has been lined up to play Broadway, the world’s biggest stage.

The musical is written and directed by Scot Tish Tindall and made its world premiere in Aberdeen in January this year. An international tour will kick off with performances in Edinburgh this September, before heading to New York and Los Angeles as well as possible dates in China.

The journey started from a conversation Tindall had with Hollywood producer David Gest at a casino in Leeds. Tindall said: “I was talking to David Gest about Burns and the work he had done with Michael Jackson. He thought it would be good to renew it, to breathe new life into it.” Gest who is famous for, among other things, his marriage to Liza Minelli and his appearance in 2006’s TV reality show ‘I’m a celebrity…Get me out of here!’ grew up as a close friend of late pop star Jackson.

In the 90s he and Jackson produced and recorded twelve songs written by Burns which had been set to accompany a musical under the direction of Hollywood legends Gene Kelly and Anthony Perkins. Unfortunately before the project got underway, both men died and the musical never took off. Now, nearly two decades later, Tindall has rewritten a contemporary version of the musical including themes based on Simon Cowell’s X-factor and Michael Jackson’s hit Thriller – using Tam O’Shanter as inspiration.

The modern musical is due to perform at Edinburgh’s Church Hill Theatre in September before taking to the stage just off New York’s Broadway followed by dates in Los Angeles. There are also rumours of possible performances in China thanks to the country’s somewhat mysterious connection to Auld Lang Syne. The 1940 film “Waterloo Bridge”, in which the song is played, was hugely popular in post-war China and has since become something of a classic. The song has been used widely to teach English and has its own Chinese language adaptation.

However despite international acclaim and the glitz and glamour that performing in New York will bring, the play has maintained its original cast of actors, all of whom were trained at Tindall’s Rock Academy of Performing Arts (RAPA) in Lossiemouth. The cast which includes twenty year old Luke Cockram as Burns, have all been trained at RAPA with the majority having come through an apprenticeship. This remarkable opportunity will take her young cast to what is arguably the world’s biggest stage.Tindall said bestowing practical skills upon people to make them employable was a cornerstone of the apprenticeship scheme at RAPA and her educational philosophy

“We hope that each individual who trains with us can be employed at the end of their training,” she said. “If that is by us that is brilliant and if it is by another play, that’s brilliant too. “There has to be another route for talent that isn’t all about overnight success. It can’t be all about Simon Cowell – not to take away from him – but we want to give young people pride in a craft that they have honed and can go out and use.” Tindall is keen on emphasising that whilst the musical is a working model of a successful education into work scheme, it is also about turning people on to Burns’ work and his relevance to everyday life.

“Burns’ messages are universal, it’s not well known but Abraham Lincoln had three busts in his home of writers who he drew on for inspiration; Dickens, Shakespeare and Burns.” “We’re trying to get his message out to a wider audience and hope to spark people’s imaginations that hopefully leads them to go out and find out more about the man.”

She added it was perfect timing that the play would be staged in New York during Tartan Week, an annual event which is held to promote all things Scottish. “We’re selling Scotland and we’re selling the craftsmanship of the Scottish people,” she said. But she said she was also trying to get away from the ‘tartan and shortbread’ version of Scotland. “What we’re trying to do is to get away from the Brigadoon vision of Scotland and bring it into the modern day.” she said. “The musical is a 21st century story about an 18th century genius.”

Celtic head to Sweden – Squad depth shows in 3-1 United win

d9c2742cd29157ca17499246d40c0a11

Usually as a Celtic fan an game away to Dundee United would be measured as important and we would always play our strongest 11, today showed Celtic to be the new force they have actually became, where we are going as a club and a playing staff that will only improve. If we win on Tuesday against Malmo Ronny is God, should we lose on Tuesday Ronny will be up for the sack by many people. One thing we do know is, no matter what! We have European football till Christmas. But I KNOW we will get past Malmo #Fact

Tuesday 25th - 19:45 Malmö (2) Vs Celtic (3)

Tuesday 25th – 19:45 Malmö (2) Vs Celtic (3)

I was out and about and recorded today’s game so had to spend all afternoon ignoring text messages and calls from people who I thought wanted to talk football or I would talk football with, you know the story :D Doing everything possible to get through town, out your car and into your house, with people in it nasty enough to tell you the score :D And to then sit down with a glass or cup of choice and enjoy the game, it worked today but when I seen the starting 11 I was like “OH NO” Even Scott Allan couldn’t get a start! Last year it never worked up in Inverness but there is something new about this squad, more together and Ronny is using his squad BRILLIANTLY! We will see how brilliant on Tuesday night!

Red card in first game - Who seen this coming by THAT ref?

Yellow card in first game – Who seen this coming by THAT ref?

Nine changes and with Ambrose I had ‘The Fear’ but there he was again, my good mate Leigh Griffiths :D I don’t actually know the guy I just know people he hang around with. Remember this? My October 1st 2014 – Open Letter to Leigh Griffiths <Click there and >>HERE<<by Etims) Well the good man put me at ease when on 17 minutes a superb through ball by Izaguirre Griffiths split the 2 center halves rounded the keeper and passed it into the empty net. This was 100% from the training ground, Leigh is beating the off-side trap more these days and you can tell this is practiced, very easy goal to look at but took a lot of hard work and boring routine training, but the players see the repetition working, so it’s all coming together slowly and will get amazingly better, trust me!! :-)

Griffiths does what he is getting really good at, how good can he become?

Griffiths does what he is getting really good at, how good can he become?

Celtic AGAIN wasted chance after chance and stranger still most of them from Commons but it was his 2nd full 90 Minutes since May! Wasteful again and this is an issue we are hoping is just something teams go through for a few weeks. Since Boyata gave the ball away twice against ICT in the 4-2 game all he has done is give the ball away mostly, I hope today’s rest helps him get over what is probably a confidence issue, Ronny will be getting his confidence back up I am positive Ronny has this effect on players who’s desire he knows is worth coaching in football and life, this is what Ronny does, he coaches the mind of a football player also. Celtic finally got the 2nd goal after a United corner was cleared, Common’s ended up stand side after a counter attack with a good cross needed, he duly delivered but before the ball could get to Griffiths for a tap in United defender Mark Durnan stuck a foot out hoping his keeper would kick clear, well a mess ensued and the ball rolled over the line for 2-0 Celtic

Durnan puts past his own keeper

The 2nd half ended on a sour note and a terrible challenge by Ambrose leading to a United penalty, again like the Malmo and Kilmarnock games before we should have been 5-0 up, this time a penalty just before half time slotted home by Chris Erskine. So what should have been another easy half time chat and a cup of tea for Ronny for the 3rd game in as many weeks meant he was probably giving them a hard time, but knowing deep down we had more than enough to beat United to come with and this is what happened. Half Time: United 1-2 Celtic

United pull one back with the last kick of the ball 1st half

United pull one back with the last kick of the ball 1st half

The 2nd half was a different affair altogether, Celtic had the game and pressed well, United never looked like getting a 2nd apart from some strange goalkeeping from Logan Bailly on his Celtic debut struggled with a back-pass and his clumsy challenge on Muirhead had the United fans shouting ‘Penalty, apart from that Celtic were steady, Rogic I thought had a good game today in the Scott Brown role beside Mulgrew who was subbed but ok for Tuesday, Commons got BT Sports man of the match but I thought Eoghan O’Connell had a fantastic game, and him twice giving CB partner Ambrose a roasting is proof enough Eoghan has more to his game than Ambrose, this kid should get a good run in the side in the league as I think he will progress playing alongside Van Dijk, maybe he has lost that chance. I thought he really played very well, and with the 3rd goal also coming from an academy player it almost shoots down the “Celtic don’t produce enough home grown talent out of Lennoxtown” argument that I seen in some media last week

Celtic put the game to bed with 15 minutes to play with Coll Donaldson getting a foot to a goal bound shot from Callum McGregor, I think the ball was heading in anyway but it hit enough of Donaldson to wrong foot Zwick and roll past him. Celtic had several shots and corners in the second half, Ronny got his substitutions right at the right times and all in a good 3 points. McGregor did really well in a loan year in England and came back to Celtic and scored a few at the start of last season then fell away and sadly got injured, yesterday we seen a glimpse of what this kid can do, he can play and if played every week I think would get double figures in goals, a headache for Ronny but a really good one, we still need another striker and a few defenders however, lets hope Champions League Football and it’s fiscal prize can get us the players we need. A certain ex Celtic striker would walk back to Glasgow if given half a chance and also to clear up, Griffiths will happily see out his career at Celtic unless a huge bid comes in but I doubt that highly, we will see

Now we must wait till Tuesday to see if resting 9 players was a good call, yesterday it is a good call but did all 9 players need rested? I am not 2nd guessing Ronny’s tactics here, far from it I think Ronny is slowly taking Celtic to a new level. We won’t spend silly money on players but the ones Ronny are signing are showing they are decent and will keep improving further, look at say? Johansen and others, his buying record is good and he also makes others better with Bitton being 1 example. Unfair to judge his player buying and selling as he came in the door last summer and brought some dud loan players with him with the added Scepovic gamble that never paid off. Slowly I think Celtic are becoming a TOP European side in terms of football ability. We are a Global Giant, no arguments but Ronny wants to match as much as possible our Global appeal and name with a way of playing. He is moulding a very good unit of players and also getting rid of dead wood he doesn’t see being long term good for the team, Pukki and Balde are gone and I think Stokes and Boerrigter will be out the door this transfer window also with maybe a few still to come in, probably is this is being done on the principle of us playing in the Champions League or 100% the Europa League should unlikely fail on Tuesday against an average side, good start to the season however, pre-season and early domestic football has been planned really well by Ronny, we will see on Tuesday if he got it spot on, I think he has

Great team of 3 took a HUGE risk today, worked well

My man of the match was Eoghan O’Connell, every time he was called on he did his job but he also did well on the ball, Celtic play with the ball around the back a lot patiently looking for gaps to play in, the kid showed today he can do this

See you all Tuesday when we will all be celebrating Champions’ League Group Stage Football. ;-)

38a98d1857336868158f3150bd28da92Over the past few weeks I have noted American people debate immigrants. I almost smiled knowingly but in reality it’s a sign of the times coming from #Some people in the USA. People are quick to remind you of History but when you turn the coin around on them they block you or refuse to answer as they have no answer. Every week several people block me through Political or Religion debates because they just don’t have an answer. Happens also here in Scotland, people debating Scotland being free, you ask them a question and they just hate you or block you :D People need to educate themselves on issues before they can comment on them. Whenever I 0065209faa3895fc5020c72a179877f3do a blog I am always educated enough on the subject to debate back, like an adult, sadly some adults resort to acting like kids. Me? And others? We block hate. I don’t hate here, just a friendly reminder to certain cultures who HATE. When I say the USA is 37th in literacy I often must tell myself the answer back to me may be uneducated. I know American’s who think Russia is a bad place, that Iran should be bombed off the face of Earth, I also know Palestinian’s WILL 100% be recognized by the international community with-in a year. 11911807_1171291306220746_1854856704_nResearch, knowledge, learning, growing as a person is very important. I know as much as your average 40 year old Scottish person but I do try and always educate myself further. I flunked School, I got thrown out half way through the last year, I was an idiot and bowed to peer pressure and was a fool. I learnt more in the real World than I ever did at School in terms of “How to be a person” In School in Scotland the Education System is 3rd best on Earth but try finding a graph to prove it is very difficult because we are lumped in beside England, Wales and Northern Ireland, 17th in literacy the UK/Britain is today, really poor in my eyes. I know the Scottish education system through my 2 sons who are 20 years old or so and now my two Daughters 1 who is 2nd year Primary school and 6 years old with the other 1st year School aged 5.

Cultures are different, we must deal with this and not hate. As I say I don’t hate, I educate myself and then share what I learn, you then have a choice to read and research or hate me :D Call it or don’t, in reality I don’t lose sleep over much, I just love reality in the sense of learning about our World. I have never left mainland Britain so my information comes from talking to people and researching very hard for hours on end on subjects I am confused about. All good fun! Scotland the 14th richest nation in the world <Click) But finding a graph on literacy is very hard. An American person did this and it’s VERY easy to see that without sourcing who wrote it and where they placed the USA and Britain :D and how they think and write about other countries. Best Countries in the World <Click) I could share more but I would die of boredom. Apart from that, at this stage I have offended the brain dead and they are not reading this, so well done you for reading it all :D

Smartest left to right…USA not even on list. What does this tell us?

I can't find reliable graphs with the USA on them...UK is 3rd on Earth..USA isn't even close

President Carter Comes Out Fighting Melanoma To Media – VIDEO

Utter respect for what this great man said in the video below

Utter respect for what this great man said in the video below

I am way too young to know President Carter as a Politician, a leader and President in one of our World’s brightest lights in whatever brightness you choose. As a young man I took a lot of interest in our World, probably why I ask so many questions and think so deeply today. I didn’t know President Carter as ‘Mr President’ but I did meet and learn to respect the man he became after he left his office. He become a humanitarian, he put his own beliefs aside and even questioned them whilst seeking peace in our World. Here in Scotland I was educated well on POTUS Carter, served one term and will be remembered in his old political life for things he said and done, in the New York Times article below and many other sources a regret is not helping relations between Israel and its Arab neighbors, these were his words, although it could be said he was fighting a losing battle. Also he wants to live long enough to help eradicate ‘Guinea Worm  He set up the Carter Center in Atlanta with a will to help. We all wish him well, this man lived his dream and our dream, I  pray he can still work as he wants to. In my thoughts Mr President. Below are some tweets from Twitter, I don’t know low level political workings in the USA but it seems this man is very popular with American people, this is what I can see and feel from here in Scotland.

ATLANTA — The 39th president of the United States walked into the crowded room on Thursday, slightly stooped at 90 years old, but nimble as a cat. He flashed the fleshy smile that once launched a thousand caricatures.

And then Jimmy Carter spoke, with the lilt of a South Georgia farmer and the pragmatic frankness of a seasoned executive, about the cancer that had been removed from his liver, but was more recently discovered in his brain. He spoke about the innovative treatment regimen to combat the melanoma, which he began a day earlier and planned to continue Thursday afternoon.

Festival chief: I was bullied over #IndyRef debate – More proof of propaganda

Mills said that he was trying to avoid agit-prop productions

Mills said that he was trying to avoid agit-prop productions

Kevin Bridges the comedian was one of the first to say in public “I was told not to mention the Referendum” Since then we have heard of many people on the lead up to the September 14th 2014 vote for Scottish Freedom who were told to not mention things, one particular media outlet was worse than others but in truth as I have written about more than once this week we can CLEARLY see a huge pattern of people now coming forward saying they were told to do as they were told. So did Scotland have a Democratic Referendum? I know my answer, after reading this what is your opinion?

SIR Jonathan Mills, the former director of the Edinburgh International Festival, has said he felt bullied by critics who demanded he tackle the Scottish independence debate.

The Australian impresario has told how he felt he was being put under pressure to stage pro- independence works in his final programme last summer. Speaking on the issue for the first time since last year’s referendum, Sir Jonathan said he was concerned that the festival would have been in danger of putting on “agit-prop” and promoting propaganda had he climbed down.

A number of leading figures in the cultural movement for independence – including Scots Makar Liz Lochhead, artist Alasdair Gray, playwright David Greig, actor David Hayman and author Alan Bissett – were among those to take him to task.

Sir Jonathan, who was speaking during an Edinburgh Festival freedom of speech debate, came under fire two years ago for refusing to tackle the independence debate in the 2014 festival, held just weeks before the country went to the polls. At the time of his original declaration, Sir Jonathan said he wanted to ensure the event was kept as a “politically neutral space for artists.” He instead announced that the 100th anniversary of the First World War and the staging of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow would be inspiring his main themes.

However months after the storm of controversy broke, it emerged that the EIF would be staging three epic new plays set in 16th century Scotland, when the independent country was ruled by three Stewart Kings. The Scottish Government provided direct funding to the tune of £200,000 for Rona Munro’s plays, which were co-produced by the National Theatre of Scotland and the National Theatre of Great Britain.

During the freedom of speech debate this week, Sir Jonathan – who was knighted two years ago – was asked whether it was possible for an event like the EIF to offer a truly politically neutral space. He insisted that he had never imposed any kind of ban on anything related to the independence debate.

He added: “I didn’t actually say that I wouldn’t have it, I just said that I wouldn’t be forced into doing it. There is a very great difference. I felt the conversations before the (2014) programme had been released about what should be in it and being asked to determine it according to a very particular kind of politics, that was very much about the notion of the arts supporting an independence movement, were problematic.

“Most of the things that we do here are highly politically charged. But if that’s all they are then that’s a worry for me. “My concern is that if all that art is is political then it becomes agit-prop. In a world where we acknowledge that art is political, we have to defend it in being other things as well. It would be very interesting for us to start to interpret in a very specific, very directed way those kinds of things. Then you start to get into the area of propaganda.”
