Price of Britain’s Slave Trade Revealed at St. John’s College

Very interesting read. The below quote along shows us how sick and corrupted ‘people’ are to allow money to twist and pollute their mind, heart and soul enough to treat fellow humans so immorally; with such vicious malice and depravity.

“What these letters reveal, apart from a total lack of empathy for their human commodities is the sheer amount of money involved. Many anti-slavery campaigns were grassroots efforts by ordinary people, while the pro-slavery lobby had significant wealth and influence they could use to exert pressure on Parliament.”

Am I not a man and a brother (Slavery 4.9)

Earlier this month, St John’s College Library at the University of Cambridge, announced the acquisition of letters and papers revealing in detail how human beings were priced for sale during the 18th century Transatlantic Slave Trade. They are now available to researchers and the public. Special Collections Librarian Kathryn McKee reminds us that the 18th century letters provide “a distressing reminder of the powerful business interests that sustained one of the darkest chapters in British history.” Dr. Richard Benjamin, Head of the International Slavery Museum, points out that the letters are also part of a larger body of historical documentation that sheds light on resistance to slavery. Here are just a few excerpts; see the full article in the link below.

[. . .] Kathryn McKee, Special Collections Librarian, who acquired the papers, which were previously held in Derby County Records Office, said: “These documents provide first-hand evidence of the sale of…

How Welfare/Job Centre Treats the Disabled- Video

This blows my mind. First, people who work with the disabled are saints (the ones who are kind and caring -such as this lady appears to be). However, when the government expects people with any disability; mental, emotional or physical, to work I don’t understand why the public is not outraged. The sweet young woman in the below video has a serious disability and upon watching her I would like anyone with a brain to name a job she could handle.

American Police…Try Following This UK Officer’s Example

I normally am not impressed by cops, there was the cop in California who saved countless people from jumping to their death off of the Golden Gate Bridge– to me he’s a cop worthy of respect- at least, from what I know. Check out that link, it is actually very inspiring.

And though I know police in England are not saints and do far more than their share of abuse; I must say if American cops responded like cops in London did today, this would be a far safer country. (Police are the biggest gang we have here in America, if you ask me. That’s sad and scary. Anyhow-)

Americans, can you imagine a cop here doing this? Because I cannot. If cops responded like the cops in London did today, hell, even if they only treated the unarmed like this… but an armed person!?

Abortion Dr. Tiller-LONDON- Screening & ScreenTalk-July 6- East End Film Festival

If you are in the UK – especially London, be sure to check out the film selection regarding the heroic and inspiring Dr. Tiller. A man dedicated to what he believed in, only to be murdered by one of the insane anti-choice/”pro”-lifers. Check it out July 6th, London!!! (information follows below as does link, I must give a very, very quick rant first.

It’s simply astonishing how pro”lifers” support an unjust death penalty system here in the states, yet hate doctors whom perform safe and moral medical practices so much that these “pro-lifers” (aka anti-choicers) somehow think killing innocent adult for caring for his patients is somehow, moral!? Umm, what we do medically is no one’s business, anyway. These “people”‘disgust me.

As a woman who in fact does support 3rd term abortions, and does not consider it murder (because…well…it’s not, simply put), I wish so badly I was in the UK to attend… It seems I’m always in the wrong country or city when things like this happen >.< anyhow! So London & all you in the UK who can go; below are the details and the link for tickets & etc. Ohhh I wanna go!!!

Too Insane to Comprehend; Moronic Writer Seeks Attention by Claiming Women Should be Sterilized…

This is sickening. This, is the type of thing “anti-choicers” should protest, something we should all protest. Apparently, a free London (local) newspaper is making the call for women to be “sterilized”- stating, and I sadly quote:

“certain people should be banned altogether from producing offspring and possibly even neutered for the general good of society.”

Yeah. It should be the people who wrote the article. Sorry, annoyed sarcasm on my part. I have no evidence but am rather sure these are the “anti-choicers” and “pro-capital punishment” groups in America. Just seems like something crazy that would go along with their insane beliefs. Anyhow, back to what’s going on. (He IS for bringing the death penalty back to the UK, as a side note.)

Why Glorify Thatcher NOW; After All The Tragedy She Created?

Why is it that no matter how wrong a person’s deeds were while they were alive; and no matter how many lives they ruined or impacted in a negative way, upon death so many people want to glorify them as saints or good-hearted, good-willed human beings? Immediately after hearing the news regarding Margaret Thatcher’s death, I began seeing posts praising her from people whom otherwise criticized her.

I can’t stand this! If a person isn’t good while alive, why do so many people feel the pressing need to make them into a good person after death? Calling a spade a spade is not being “evil” or disrespecting the dead. Had said person (not just Thatcher but ANYONE) chosen to live a good life and help others, there would be no reason to call them anything other than good. But when a person spent their political career Continue reading Why Glorify Thatcher NOW; After All The Tragedy She Created?
