Scotland Votes – 30 Second Scottish Election Manifesto Videos

5 voices = 5 key questions

5 voices = 5 key questions

All videos with questions below. Patrick Harvie – Green Party, Willie Rennie – Liberal Democrat, Ruth Davidson – Conservative, Kezia Dugdale – Labour Party and Scotland’s SNP leader and First Minister Nicola Sturgeon had 5 questions posed to them. 1. Education, 2. Our free National Health Service, 3. Why Scotland should or should not be in the UK, 4. Creating more jobs to improve the low figure of 170,000 unemployed that equates to 4% or 5% and lastly 5. How to further protect and improve Scotland’s amazing environment. Before the vote, remember the lies, and remember the ‘SNP give Scottish people free of charge what the 3 other Home Countries people sadly pay for, we get free prescriptions, got the new Queensferry Crossing, an end to bridge toll fees, free further education, the Council Tax freeze, an end to the Bedroom Tax and the near death of  (British Labour in Scotland) < That was from a Facebook friend Iain Moss and it would be good if we could educate further and TOTALLY make Scotland Yellow and retire some more liars who stole our freedom in 2014 by scaring 73% of over the 65’s, telling them they would lose their pensions or have reductions when this was not the case and all other lies. Reminder below of 2014 percentages as well as all 25 thirty second videos from all 5 leaders. Also to note the 3 biggest parties have female leaders, I love that. Remember the 2014 lies, but also remember we voted a political tsunami and painted Scotland SNP yellow by sending 56 SNP Politicians from Scotlands 59 London Westminster political seats in the 2015 UK Generel Elections. Lets get free Scotland, please watch and share the videos from all 5 Political party leaders below. Don’t mess up this time Scotland

Top 10 Interesting Facts About Scotland – By an American

maxresdefault

Just part of the scenery

Whoever this guy is he isn’t really correct much here. But a few things he is spot on or half correct. And yes, number 1 on the list is as we expect here. But it brings in Millions of pounds to our new Devolved Scottish Parliament in my city Edinburgh, also the Capital City. This guy did research, sadly he mentioned kilts like we wear them to go shopping 😀 We NEVER wear kilts unless it’s a wedding, but even then it’s a few. His talk on the ‘Vaults on number 9 are so untrue. He speaks in number 7 about Ginger hair, TOTAL RUBBISH 😀 Number 6, unicorns, we NEVER talk about, EVER, guy who started this crap was an English King, he is correct on sport, also how good our Education and Health care is because they are both number 1 in the World. Apart from all that, 5 out of 10 for research and truth 😀 Good fun here, nothing else

Europe Vs America: Know The Difference

Guy isn't even European. American's are not very good at this :D

Guy isn’t even European. American’s are not very good at this 😀

How the UK reacted, Europe was the same

How the UK reacted, Europe same

Well here is a bit of fun. I know how terribly offended some American’s can be, many believe we hate them but in-fact we kinda look over shaking our heads most of the time at things they do (Image of Bush winning 2nd term to the left being proof via UK Print media) also some wait to be offended. So if I offended you, or you feel offended, ask yourself why. I am just posting images made by American people. These are all from an American site called 10 Things Europe Does Way Better Than America, that led me to more images. Europe is ahead of America when it comes to healthcare, better education, less violent crime and more important, Religion is a private thing in Europe. If anyone calls me on this stating the Middle East, I will mock you 😀 Europe has already dealt with Gun Control and Abortion, also Religion, 3 thing’s that divide America right down the Middle. One day not so long ago the USA were making huge things and doing amazing things, fast forward to 2015 and we see in America what we here in Europe have already addressed or dealt with. America is still a very young Country. American’s complain about immigration but forget every bloodline in the USA outside the indigenous people, the native Indians are all from outwith the borders of the USA. These people are the real owners of the USA but Europeans, yes all you American people’s blood lines were brutal on the Indians, everyone else has European blood lines. I say this a lot just in fun but my last house was older than the USA. We lived in the old town in Edinburgh where houses are 300 years old, America was made by Europeans on July 4, 1776, also Canada was invented by Scotland, the first 3 Canadian Prime Ministers were Scottish! If you are American and understand what having fun is, PLEASE! Share some amazing American things with us all. I talk up my Country as I love it and people get offended, so come come! America! Show us why you are so proud of your land. Also a side note here, many American’s think Europe co-exists like the USA does state to state, nothing could be further from the truth, we don’t co-exist but we don’t hate each other in Europe. And also the differences between the free European Healthcare system against an American Healthcare System that can cost $10,000 for one night in Hospital. A friend of mine was in a US Hospital for 8 days and the bill is £100,000 with only around 60% being paid by insurance. Anyway this is total culture differences, fun, so please, don’t be offended

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 😀 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.

The smartest Countries on Earth

The smartest Countries on Earth

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 😀 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 😀 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 😀

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

Is Our World To Face End Times? Seems so!!

the_four_horsemen_by_rprave

They are all happening NOW!

This is me just typing out loud here, I have nothing planned, I seen the image above in a Google search for something fun and it hit me like a car in the street. Famine, Death, Anti-Christ and War are only a few things that I guess point to end times. Now I love being alive 😀 I have kids, a partner, family and friends, same as you. So I ask the question, why is it ONLY 1 Country of people 10,000 miles away from War, totally oblivious to the true meaning of suffering through War and oppression. I will name no more Countries or people here because I don’t have to. This Country is a shrine in my main room here in Scotland, I love the country, I grew up loving all things from there, you guys were the symbol for all things good.

What happened?

I see and read and hear people 10,000 miles away saying nasty and hurtful things. So I won’t take your day up with hate, I don’t hate, I can’t hate. How does a Dad hate with two little girls aged 5 and 6 around him all day? The answer is it can’t, these two wee souls take you to love and understanding. Then I see Mythology and old books telling people that War is ok, that oppression is fine. Sadly this big Country, your front door is about to be tapped in the same way mine was when a group of people with a cause bombed mainland Britain and we as kids were scared to go to the shops! I understand fear of oppression and hate from my youth. Today I look at the World and I am confused, I am confused because I see evil people hiding behind their version of God throwing “Who Cares” at the World. Sadly you guys are about to see hear and feel what we all have where I am, my part of the World where 2 people, 2 sets of people who are in conflict don’t want to be, they both hate it, yet the Media and 2 Countries keep the killing going and men in suits make money, that is the deal

4-horsemen

This is happening IN-SPITE OF RELIGION!! BECAUSE OF RELIGION!

Evil owns and runs our World. Should we sell our soul to the Devil today in a non-comical sense asking to win the lottery, then becoming bad people, what does scripture call this? See I research VERY HARD but never look at scripture, I research and scripture comes to me. Now I can see Mr and Mr’s Religion smiling in and evil ‘Told you so” way so hold on!! I didn’t say this was a good thing. I used to ask myself “Why do I get led to scripture” for a time I though it was divine intervention or something, nope, it’s just Google peeps, just internet words that lead us to things that we search for.

slide07

We did this regardless, it repeats, I get it now! No matter what we do, it resets and happens over and over

I ask simply, how evil are you as you stand behind your God? 

MORE LOVE, LESS HATE…. Shauny

Denzel Washington’s graduation speech puts The First Lady’s to Shame? (Video’s)

denzel1

I am not American I am Scottish. This I share for America. I like Denzel, good man, good at his job and has heart and he cares. He has money but his ethical stance on the World is close to mine. It will be close to most. Remember America you are only 4.5% out of 100% out of the 7 Billion of us on this Earth. Be proud of who you are, you are changing, waking up and it is a joy to see from my lonely hill top castle here in Scotland. You guys can judge the rest. Both Denzel’s and First Lady Michelle Obama’s speeches and links to the story below.

~~~Via: http://ht.ly/OaVcc ~~~

On Saturday, both Denzel Washington and Michelle Obama were given the opportunity to speak to two separate graduating classes at historically known black universities. Michelle’s speech, which was racially motivated, was put to shame after Denzel Washington’s commencement address went viral.

The Dillard Commencement Address
Via: Durell Jacque You Tube

The Academy and Tony Award-winning actor delivered an amazing, God-inspired speech to the 218 members of the 2015 graduating class at Dillard University. Not only was his speech inspiring, but it offered both humor and direction towards every student’s future. What he had to say left the entire audience ready to reach for their future. “No. 1: Put. God. First!” explained Denzel, according to QPolitical. “Put God first in everything you do. Everything I have is by the grace of God. Understand that. It’s a gift.”

He didn’t once include a racial remark in his speech, but rather insisted that God be a constant influence embedded in their lives. “I’ve been protected, I’ve been directed, I’ve been corrected. I’ve kept God in my life, and it’s kept me humble,” he exclaimed. He told them to “fail big” and to not only have dreams but to set goals to be able to achieve those dreams.

52 Images Showing Why Edinburgh Scotland, My City, is the World’s best

Scotland from the ISS in Space

Scotland from the ISS in Space

I can visualize people thinking “Oh here is Shaun showing off he lives in Edinburgh” Well I am not actually doing that, but what I am doing is showing the World how lucky I feel I am for being where I am. Like any amazing places on Earth, places in the USA, Canada, South America, all over Europe, Iran, China, Russia and more, some love where they stay, some hate where they live. There are bad parts of my land but we as a culture don’t put up with nonsense from thieves, seldom will we call the police on a nonsense making fool, we deal with these things in the right way, no blood, just meaningful words that we hope the person takes on board. I take all the images below for granted, same as someone does walking around New York, Chicago, Paris, Tokyo, Moscow and many more, where we live, we take for granted. I just Skyped with an friend from Southern Russia, it is in fairness, they tell me, a bad place to live, crime is high and keeping yourself to yourself to avoid the gang culture can be difficult. Every City on Earth, be them 1st or 2nd World have criminal empires in their cities, avoiding these people is what I learnt to do and life became better over time. Sadly I know people who stay in danger and not just Scottish people, a few people I speak too from other shores take drugs and worse and I don’t hear from for months, in 2 cases never again. Basically what I am saying is, if you want a life where you can live in peace, no issues, no hassle, no idiots, a life you know you can open your front door and it’s safe. I live in a place so quiet I often forget I live in the Capital City of Scotland, I live in Edinburgh but on the outskirts. So here are some images of what I take for granted, but in all honesty I could not live anywhere else. Visit yeah! But I look into my monitor here in Scotland and see a different World, a World alien to me,  a World where people try for Peace and other due to ‘Whatever’ reason’s would rather see War. I must thank God for my life and where I live. I say this and often people say “But Shaun you live in pain” This is true, but if you live in pain? The scenery here sure helps, enjoy my City

This girl is a symbol of a migration policy that has dehumanized our species

This is a real girl, same age as my 2 Daughters. We need know this

This is a real girl, same age as my 2 Daughters. We need know this

First I must say thank you to a friend David Milligan for showing this and sharing this. I had reblogged it but I had to write what was in my heart here. What you see floating there in still water is a little girl. What you are seeing here is ignorance by our World leaders, the consequence of intolerance of immigrants. We all have opinions on immigration, strange as it is mostly American’s, I won’t spend a lot of time writing about the USA but most people in the USA are immigrants from Europe or elsewhere. I myself, like you have family who have moved from my land to your land or other areas in the World, this is ok, this is politically correct, the World as a species are fine with people moving from Scotland to Australia, USA to Europe, anywhere to anywhere as long as they have money and can deal with their own life. Sadly a line has been drawn, an invisible hate line where people who are escaping certain death in their own country by any means possible, often leading to the image you see above we class as nothing, well it is not nothing it is everything and something we MUST change. I write about this most days and I know I reach all parts of our World but I often ask myself “Do people actually take it in?” I know I do, I can sit and cry over this, sadly others read then go make lunch as if this is just normal in our species, for me that scares me most. 11903806_1031950223491500_121247630948379406_n Also we can’t forget the terrorist agenda in this story. People who say? Leave the UK to fight with ISIS (US/Israel/UK Funded, I proved this already) We are allowing people to leave our land, fight for ISIS and they can re-enter our Countries, lives and World. This is also a huge part of the problem, so we must turn the coin around World.. Awful debate this at time. We can’t throw hate at hate but as a Human, if this image doesn’t make you angry, sorry, you ain’t human. And I mean to disrespect. Only opinions I can share here. I am not above nor below any human. I am just me, you are you. Be we who we become is the story.. 11916099_1031950220158167_5527360048982861438_n This little girl is a Syrian refugee. She did not ask for this, she did not ask to be born into hate and an education philosophy our species has stamped onto little girls like the girl in the picture above. All we can really know from this image is someone tried to save this kids life. Her parents may or may not have been with her, facts are this little girl was being ushered away from something. She was being taken away from danger to try and save her life. Now she is a statistic we as a species must accept as our own downfall. Sure we will and do blame our leaders all over the World but please, go and stand in-front of a mirror and ask what part you played in this. With every vote you make and with every political decision you make we all make it easier for our World’s powerful and greedy to allow what happened above to keep happening. Human rights are lies of privileged hypocrite nations when babies drown for freedom. This little girl is a symbol of what our species has become, I know I care and I know others who care but the people we pay to care don’t care.

War Child by The Cranberries
Via Beth Crosa on You Tube

11889506_1176668362349707_7502308659483055987_nDoes anyone really think this is the first time a little girl has died at sea trying to escape War? Does anyone thing this is a one off? We look to UKIP and other right wing leaders and thinkers here in the UK and all over Europe and ask simple questions. This could be your Daughter escaping war, this could be our life, our reality, do you care yet? This was named “For the urgent attention of every World leader today” I will take it one step further and say “THIS IS FOR THE URGENT ATTENTION OF EVERY LIVING BREATHING HUMAN BEING WHO CAN READ THIS AND DOES NOTHING” Why do we not help? The questions this image raises are many but the answers sadly will be less. How can we claim to be human and not be upset over this image? How can we claim to care and not share this image and this story. How can we let this keep happening? How many invisible babies will we allow to die in the name of ignorance? There are a few who have more money than the many, people worth billions of pounds who make profit at the expense of anything they can. I once as a kid used to ask myself “Why are people poor” I guess as a 40 year old adult I am asking the same question but at a higher level. This little girl didn’t want to blow us up or cut our heads off, we must have knowledge in this story and all these stories. In a World slowly starting to hate Muslims, all Muslims because they refuse to educate themselves we who understand not all Muslims want us dead must spread the words of truth. I will get abuse from Americans for writing this, but all the serve to do is prove us right, the people who do care

Not until we as a species start to care, do more than just write, do more than just know will this change. I give as much as I can to many charities, same as many of us do, then we see this image and scratch our head asking how this is still happening. Since I was a kid I have seen the World have yearly phone-in’s where Countries give 10’s of Millions a year for causes like this one, yet that little girl is dead in the water. We must find another way another solution and more important we MUST take the 1% to task over this, no longer can we allow a few thousand people to rule us because they have more money than us. War makes money and the disgusting side of this image is simply she died so some war machine can make money. If we are going to tell the story we must tell the whole story and not just the parts that make us comfortable, I have a global audience the same as others so please, use this global audience you have to share this far and wide, do it before it’s your kid. As a species we have to wake up, I sit here and cry most days seeing these issues, will we ever find a day or know a day where this is not an issue in our World? For anyone against immigration in the nature of helping the helpless, take a good look, take a real good look

When we watch TV, we are full of sympathy for the Syrian people, but when they arrive here, we provide them the label ‘illegal’ and we chase them as petty criminals. This is about people. How we will deal with refugees and migrants be considered in a few decades as a disgrace in the history of Europe. We must change the ‘War Child’ thinking together

Super Famous American Muslims for STUPID RACIST Americans!

america-demotivational-poster-1220725292

I had to post this, today as several people told me “All Muslims want American’s dead” now right away I shake my head America, not at you all, just the thick stupid religious racist sectarian ones. See Religious America think ISIS = All Muslims. It is like saying EIRE = All IRA! Yeah, go Google EIRE America, you are clueless. I get REAL offended when I have to sit and listen to goofballs sit and tell me most days how America is going to be killed by ALL Muslims. ISIS have killed 10’s of Thousands of people already, sure they are in America with some blaming a few deaths and police murders on ISIS. America, some of you are so stupid my 5 year old Daughter would laugh at you and I REALLY MEAN THAT. My Daughter has some friends who are Muslim. Both my Daughters asked the questions “Daddy why are my friends different color” or “Daddy, Why has my friend got different eyes” My Daughters go to school with all races and religions and people from all over the World, something America SHOULD KNOW! I sit them down and explain where different cultures come from on our globe, they have not asked me about religion yet but when they do they will have the freedom to choose God if they want, I explain why their friends may be in Scotland, usually for our brilliant lifestyle. My Daughters educated me I educate them, it is a two way street education, you can educate someone but will they listen and take it in? Well that is another question. A friend of a friend this morning tried to tell me this, my friend never got involved to be fair, but if the fool seen this (Not my friend) he would hate anyway, still! See once you are THAT LEVEL OF STUPID, there is no going back. When your media and religion make you THIS FRIGGIN PARANOID America, it’s time to maybe look at all I have shared here and maybe ask yourself “Am I wrong?” Because you are! I will leave a list of pictures showing MUSLIM AMERICANS YOU GREW UP LOVING AMERICA! And some I hardly know as I am in Scotland, also a TON of links to more #FamousAmericanMuslims < Someone should twitter that hashtag #

Why are bands doing these songs? People protesting? Anyone ?

Why Hate MUST End Somewhere, Sometime In Our World – Religion Kills Us All

kiyzpem

Hate is a horrible thing, only for the select soulless few. Being called Shaun, supporting Celtic and living in Scotland can be a challenge at times, I don’t hate Rangers, hard too as they died 😀 I am half joking here. I have been called a ‘Fenian B@stard’ told to ‘Go Home the famine is over’ when I am like 2 mile from home, and all the rubbish of the day, my thoughts on these people I don’t hide. I don’t hate, look to the right at the images and scroll down, look at the image I use as my banner, I don’t hate, it’s more teaching myself about life, people and what certain things can do to our World. These Protestants/Christians you will see in the Video below are flying the Union flag, now I have no problem with anyone flying a flag but the motives of why they carry a flag can be more telling. The guys in the video below are mainly young kids or guys late teens early 20’s, some of them are probably tough lads but I have always held the belief they are only so tough in groups. During my life I have been left alone with one of these ‘Never been to church’ Christians who fly the Union banner yet every time they are always cool on their own, never nasty, not even a joke, but leave me with 2 of them and it will end in a fight when I eventually think “Ack enough of this nonsense” Well the video below was a very small minority of no voters, very small but still annoying and the media never call them out, strange yeah?

~~

I had the pleasure, sorry displeasure of getting to meet real bigoted sectarian racists up close and personal last night. I seen one comment from some woman and it was highly offensive towards Muslims, this came from 6 different Americans out on an internet fishing trip. Now I can only speak for my country but we don’t get fooled into hating every walking talking Muslim in Scotland via our TV news or any race of people. Sure Scotland has Catholic and Protestant issues but compared to what I witnessed last night Scotland does not have big problems, up until last night I thought some of the stuff being said was bad in Scotland till I had the misfortune of running into a group of Christians/Protestants from the USA, it was incredible, the hatred towards Muslims was misguided and very uneducated but what do we expect from the most vocal country in the World sitting at 27th in the World when it comes to Education, there were things said I just won’t share, I blocked but unblocked to get a few comments, is it just me or is these highly disgusting sectarian comments? I won’t lose sleep, I am just asking. The internet never fails to surprise or shock me

Untitled

Beware Europe, Islam is coming to get us!! American bibles have foretold this horrific story! Yeah it’s not funny but it makes you wonder about people

 

Untitled2

Check this “Muslims suffer from Sharia law” than others. So who is getting hurt here? Europe or Muslims? Or this fools credibility to say “I am human”

 

Untitled3

The Koran says no such things in the way he is talking, coming from an American, probably with a Gun and ironically, a country that kills people still! #DeathRow

 

Untitled4

I know the guy is from the USA but he is speaking like he lives in an ISIS controlled territory. I don’t get these people. Need to turn the news off!

 

The lack of education in these people was really sobering in terms of how I look at the USA. Don’t get me wrong I know some amazing people from the USA and many who have moved from Scotland to the East Coast for example.  Over the last year I have tried to think “What exactly has happened to the USA and it’s people” then I realised quickly last night what it was. I shared a video some time ago where some kids I was told were the smart kids in the USA. They were asked who they want as POTUS in 2016, every one of them said Hilary Clinton and that is fair, we are all allowed an opinion and a vote. Then the same kids were asked “Why should Hillary Clinton be the next President Of The United Stated Of America” This is the video below, this is the upcoming new generation of a country that has Nuclear capability, I don’t say to American people you should worry, I say to the World “You should worry” Here is why, these poor kids had no idea why they wanted Hillary as President, one kid said “Well we had an African American, it’s only logical we have a Woman next” This is the same America that stomps around the World forcing Democracy on Countries and people when in-fact the people in these countries are happy, they are fine, leave them be!! Look to Iraq, believe it or not before the 2nd War that got Saddam hung the people had Schools, College, Work, Homes, Mortgages, Cars, Pets, beautiful homes, they had what you and I have. Iraq had issues but so does all countries, how dare the USA and England stomp into an illegal War and kill a people and country for all time!!

I know some decent American people don’t fully understand why I write about their country but I hope this helps. Religion, yeah our old friend religion has ruined this World we live in, but religion is just a word to describe something, the people within religion, not all, but mostly are the problem. I have seen lately more than ever how American’s truly believe they are the centre of the World and all things must happen on the say-so of America, but I have also seen an amazing thing happen in America and that is people looking away from Religion and the propaganda the news tells them and seeing the World for what it is, not what they are told, America you are able to go and do anything but until you understand you have a problem then it can’t be fixed, my country has problems and we have lived through worse for over 15,000 years, history has taught us, maybe the USA is just too young a country? I live in a small country called Scotland and we want to vanish into the background of this World yet still try and win in industry, import and export, all things important, sport also, Football, (Soccer) is huge over here. We don’t want to be a super power, we don’t want to rule the World, we are just happy we are not the worst country on Earth. A video was made by Scottish actor and all round good guy Martin Compston for Scotland’s leading political party the Scottish National Party (SNP) and it speaks perfectly for Scotland. We are educated, we have knowledge, we learn from our mistakes and we are fully aware of issues we need to change. We are lucky in many ways Scottish people don’t understand, we pay not a penny for Healthcare, Dr’s appointments, Medicine, Hospital visits for any issue, all free, because we demanded it from Government here in Scotland. We have one of the top 3 Education systems on Earth and when you look out of Scotland you see evil and wrong doings we don’t fully understand, but we see it as hatred. In Scotland we laugh and have fun, nothing is ever really serious, we don’t take much serious, we value our life, our land and our people. This video is what the typical Scottish Person would think or say. Also it was filmed in part at my home city of Edinburgh.

I hope you don’t hate me for writing this, if you do you only serve to prove me correct, I wish we had a World where sure people had horrendous comments but could at least tone it down and say it with no hate, sadly the American TV Media creates hate, division, racism and more. I did an article about ‘Selma’ The story of Martin Luther King and the right of the (As they say in America) the blacks to vote. Common and John Legend speak about the things I write about every other day. Why? The 2nd video was live at the Oscars, the song ‘Glory’ speaks about a division and problem still simmering at the top in the USA. I don’t make things up, I share news with proof, search my blog I always link stories up
