Hello, I’m a straight – talking bloke that is often misunderstood. I grew up as a kid very out doorsy and when I first left school I worked on a farm and started a related college course. I left after the first year and moved onto other careers as the money earned was really low for the hours and effort put in.
In an ever more complicated world I like to keep things simple. That includes my blogging, which tend to be short & straight to the point.
Political Correctness – OUT! Old fashioned COMMON SENSE …. IN!
Aid Renegade is an evolution of myself, a born dreamer from Reading, UK. Keep it simple! The whole human race has made life too complicated for it’s own good.
Here’s a saying my late parents taught me.
“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me”
We all have different views on certain things. It doesn’t mean we always have to start fighting over them. In many instances fighting just shows a lack of tolerance. That’s not to say that sometimes the fight must happen as a last resort. Don’t stop dreaming of a peaceful resolution to the problem.
Charity begins at home. It’s a version of self empowerment. Regardless of your religion (if you still believe in one) you must just think of yourself first.
My choice in life is that of Atheist as believing in yourself , your own abilities and doing your best to use them is the only way you’re going to get anywhere in life. Your biggest strength is to recognize your own weaknesses! Keep them to yourself till you figure out how to use them to your own advantage. When things are going right for you pat yourself on the back!
I’m just a world traveled, peace loving kind of guy. It’s just a shame so many people use religion as an excuse to segregate one group of people from another and then cause so much death. To the rest of you non-violent religious people – peace! Embrace other cultures even if you don’t agree with them or even understand them. It will make you a better human being,
I’m a proud member of the biggest mammal group on the planet – the human race. I try to be reasonably polite & treat people I meet as my equal unless they prove to be different. Don’t think I’m some kind of ‘high & mighty goody two shoes’. I still smoke (but trying to quit sometimes) & I still like a few drinks! I’m not rich, I’m just trying to get by in life like the rest of you.
I call myself ‘English’ for a reason & it’s not thanks to England. My time on cruise ships was, well, special. Southerner’s & Northerner’s alike, we all partied in the crew bar. We all had a laugh. My point? I signed on my first ship ‘British’ but was impressed by the fact that all the Welsh, Irish & Scottish were proud to be part of their country. That taught me something. I’m English first, not British. I now know not to judge someone based on where they come from. I just judge them on how they act or what they do.
What goes around comes around. Bad guys – you can change. Let’s face it, if you’ve chosen career that is that bad you know someone in the same ‘social arena’ wants your position. What will another bad guy do to get it? Like I said, WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. Personally, I’d prefer to die of old age, not a bullet or bomb…. What about you?
PS – The late John Lennon had it right with his classic song ‘Imagine‘. Search for it online & play it. Listen to the lyrics. & form your own opinion! Think for your self. Better yourself. Be a dreamer! It’s your choice in life. Just don’t be a wimp & blame others when it doesn’t work out the first time. We all have a voice. This blog is mine.
PPS – Find your own voice! Then believe in it. If you better yourself at others expense, weather it be through ‘theft’ or lesser crimes it will catch up to you. What goes around comes around, normally when you least expect it.
