Armistice day, burning wreaths and idiots!!!!


Good afternoon interweb, Today is Armistice day, the day the guns at last fell silent on the Great war 1914-1918 


In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

There has since been many more wars and feuding rivalries that have claimed the lives of so many innocent and not so innocent men women and children.
I was listening to a “debate” on radio two earlier between two sides of an argument. It was all to do with the banning of some mad radical movement that have been going about burning poppy wreaths. Some bloke was saying how it was right and just that these groups are banned and that what they are doing is illegal. The other side of the argument was saying that the people who died in the wars to give us the freedoms that we have, did so for just that reason, so that we have the right to free speech and that we should be able to burn poppy wreaths if we so want. Now I'm sorry but the mad women lost the argument when she then went on to liken the ruling to the Nazi’s. When any argument gets to the point that a likening to the Nazi’s comes into it the argument  it is lost. So in her eyes she was saying, and I quote “if we keep up this sort of behaviour it will soon be like living in China or North Korea”
I'm sorry love but your a fucking idiot. I'm also not sorry to say that if I saw somebody burning poppies in the street I may well be inclined to knock them out. But that's just me and I'm an orrible old git:)
Anyway interweb I must be going as Ive got stuff to be doing.

Peace out y'all, THE BAGSTAXXX
