Thoughts on Things

Hello. How are you? It has been a while, hasn’t it. Now, what on earth have you been up to?

Here are some opinions.

Donald Trump is trying to blame the democrats for his horrific child-separation policy. I don’t understand. Am I being stupid? I thought the president is the one in power, not the democrats.

A celebrity had a female child. Immediately after reading this piece of news, I thought, I would like to have a female child. Does that make me sexist? I might prefer a female child over a male child. I am worried about having children because I fear I will lose my correct body shape and become misshapen and lumpy. Ok. Fat. I don’t want to get fat. There, I said it.

They are debating whether to legalise marijuana for recreational use here in the UK after a high profile case of a severely epileptic child who could only be treated with cannabis oil had his vital medicine taken off him at customs when he arrived in the UK. His mother fears for his death and is tirelessly campaigning to have medicinal marijuana legalised. Without knowing the full story, I think, my goodness, what is wrong with the UK. Just legalise medicinal marijuana, and then, once the boy is out of the danger zone, discuss recreational marijuana! It really doesn’t have to be such a long-drawn-out process.

The World Cup. As a mixed-race, multinational person who is British but certainly hasn’t spent all her life in England, I am sorry (not really) to say that I do not support England. I think their flag is bland like their over-boiled meat. Everybody here is happy that they won, and flags are flying out of windows. As somebody wryly put it, this is the only time people can hang their flags from windows without being seen as racist. Also, the police force recently put out a statement to warn the general public that if England loses, domestic violence could rise by a third. Accompanying this piece of news was a photograph of some England supporters standing passionately on some bleachers with their shirts off and their beer guts hanging out. I have to say, I don’t like English people at the best of times, and this just made it worse. Domestic violence indeed.

So who DO I support?

What? You have to support somebody, in the nation of football lovers!

I could support Morocco, Spain and Pakistan (haha, if they qualified). But the truth is…

Well..

The truth is, I don’t care.

What do you think of the world cup?

Apparently Americans don’t care because the whole world calls it football, and to Americans, that is just not what football is. Although I really don’t understand why the game they call football is called that, since they don’t ever kick their ball.

Americans have to be the odd ones out, don’t they. Illogical nation.

Those were my opinions for this stretch of 40 minutes. I will have some later, I am sure, but I shan’t bore you with them.

What are your opinions? I am curious to know.

  1. Love your opinions and I think about the same that you do on issues, except for the World cup. As an American, our family does enjoy football (soccer) games and especially the World Cup. We root for the US but they didn’t make it in this year. So we will just enjoy the sport.

    • Aha! From the mouth of an American! You see I formed this opinion by watching The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. I am glad you enjoy the world cup – some matches are very fun, like the Portugal vs Spain match on Friday! Thank you for sharing your thoughts 🙂

  2. President Trump thrives on exaggerations, deception, blaming, lying, taking credit but never accepting responsibility – yet – there is a large group of people who believe everything he says – no matter the lies or even contradictions – and he feeds on this.

    As for the World Cup – although I’m not a futbol/soccer fan – but I admire the ability of the players. More importantly, Hi Lenora!

  3. I think ‘soccer’ and American football when I hear “football”. I’m conditioned now to think of both!!! Though I can’t watch sports any more because I get caught up in thinking I can DO that! 😉

  4. Donald Trump is an abusive liar, Lenora, so don’t believe anything he says. I hope rational people all over the world are horrified by him, his supporters, and the cruelty of his policies. Ack! I can’t stand that monster. I can’t even hear his name without losing it (obviously).

    And sports? I’m with you. It’s fun, but really, it’s just a game. 🙂
