NO MORE COWS?

Posted on

I’ve been hearing murmurings about the footprint that cattle farming leaves on the earth, and I have just read that the clever people reckon that we will have to change the way we are farming as the current farming practices are not sustainable. Apparently feedlots have less of an impact than free ranging (?), and people must move away from eating beef and rather eat fish, pork and poultry. I was hoping they were going to say that animals should be treated more humanely – less feedlots, less poultry kept in tiny  cages to lay eggs, less pigs kept in crates to be fed to death, but no, just eat less beef… Knowing how pigs and chickens are raised for the market, I would MUCH rather eat beef, and specifically from grass fed, free range cattle.

I have one question – what do they suggest we do with the cattle all over the world? Kill them off? Slowly let them die out by castrating all the bulls?

I know I’m being facetious, but I can’t quite wrap my head around this…

Ooooooh YUM!!!! 🙂

About Racism, and being politically incorrect …

Posted on

I was raised to respect (verb).

Other people. Their belongings. Their religions, or lack thereof. Animals, or indeed all living things. Laws. My elders. Etc., etc.

As such, I believe I should be respected by others. I believe that one should live and let live. Do no harm. I am a white South African female, from European descent. In fact, just recently, I traced a part of my ancestors (my mother’s father’s ancestors) back to the 1600’s in Germany. I am so proud of that! South Africans are a mix of Dutch, French, German and English settlers that came to this country to start  a new life. Which they did, and did very well. I am also a farmer, and sad to say, white farmers in South Africa are being persecuted and murdered every day, because they are white. (From 1 January to 31 July 2017 there have been 257 farm attacks, and 53 farm murders reported, in South Africa. It’s terrifying, it’s shocking, it’s routine. In 212 days, 53 people were brutally killed, many tortured, and families torn apart forever.) (This is a quote that I took off the internet, a Facebook page that is trying to let the world know what is happening here.)

We don’t live on our farm, which is something we would dearly love to do, but it is just not safe. It is not only farmers that are targeted. White children disappear everyday, people that travel alone, from home to work, or vice versa, are disappearing and their bodies found later. The government is trying to make it off as something co-incidental, but for us living here, seeing the news everyday, we know that something else is going on here. I am proud to be a white South African, and I will continue to be despite liberals all over the world’s efforts to make us feel ashamed that we have a white skin. Despite other whites’ apologies for real and imagined wrongs from the past. Nobody can pretend that the human race is not the most murderous and destructive species on this earth, and we all have done wrong somewhere in history – the Romans, the Germans, the English with their ‘scorched earth’ policy in the Anglo-Boer war, that resulted in thousands of women and children dying in concentration camps, the Zulu’s against the Boers, and the anti-apartheid government committed their share of wrongs, but NOTHING warrants these continuous, brutal farm attacks!

In this country, it is racist to be proudly white. It’s OK to be proudly black, and to utter all kinds of threats on social media against white citizens, but you are relentlessly persecuted if you as a white person should just think of saying anything against anybody with a black skin. No matter if whatever you say is the absolute truth that can be proven in a court of law.

I don’t think this problem only exists in South Africa, from what I can see in USA, things are pretty much the same, except for the farm murders. People are not allowed to speak the truth, everybody is just so very conscious of being politically correct all the time, that none of these issues can be sorted out.

If being proud of who and what I am makes me a racist, then so be it. I was created this way, and I’m here for a reason, as is every other person on this earth, but don’t you dare tell me to deny my heritage, or be ashamed of it!

(And before you comment, I DARE YOU to Google ‘farm murders in South Africa’, read some of the literature, and a must – LOOK AT THE IMAGES!)

Hallo!

Good morning everybody!

After a few years of hiatus, I’ve decided to start blogging again! Yay! Actually, it is my daughter’s blog that has got me itching to start again. I’ve enjoyed blogging for a few years, until life got in the way a bit, but here I am – ready to give it another go!

I’m not too sure what my blog format is going to be yet, as I love taking pictures, I enjoy cooking (only if there is an appreciative audience…), I love travelling, reading, etc. So, I’m going to start and see where things take me – if you’ll bear with me…

Hello world!
