I attended the showing of the international acclaimed and award winning documentary "You've Been Trumped" at the Independent Belmont Picture House Aberdeen on Saturday 14th July 2012. Gasp, shock, horror even after being so close to the story or rather saga I'd still been quite flabbergasted by the portrayal I'd seen on the silvery screen. I sat next to Susan Munro one of the residents affected by Donald Duck and his Mickey Mouse ideas but if we are going to cast blame lets not stop there, local politics had been over road, rode rough shod, pressured by SNP "The Scottish Not-So-Nationalist Political Party." Hey but the residents of Balmedie are well versed with the 1st Monster Of Scotland snubbing them, long before the Dalai Lama visited Scotland http://www.scotsman.com/the-scotsman/politics/snp-face-growing-pressure-over-claims-they-plan-to-snub-dalai-lama-1-2368190
Pun intended "Fore" duck for cover The Donald has only gone and dug himself another hole/bunker and played everyone else into it. When will the privileged such as Trump who have an international platform be penalised and or have a consequence of their misleading even misrepresenting actions? Hell might freeze over by that time! Heaven and hell i.e. Former Balmedie before Trump came along "Heaven" a site of specialist scientific interest. Latter Trump Towers my version of "Hell." Talking of which The Illuminator -Occupy Bat Signal went to Trump Towers to project the truth about Donald Trumps efforts to bulldoze the 99% and various Scottish Agencies to build a golf course for elite jet setters. http://occupywallst.org/article/illuminating-donald-trump-trump-vs-99/
I stayed around for questions and answers at the end of the "You've Been Trumped" showing. When I apologised to Anthony Baxter Director, why? Because Anthony Baxter had originally approached me at David McCue Art Exhibition "The Art Of The Deal." 9th July 2010 at Michael Forbes Farm http://aberdeenvoice.com/2010/07/the-art-of-the-deal/ in which I declined an interview due to the fact that I anticipated contrived, utter tosh or content reminiscent of the Pro-Trump media consuming most if not all of Scottish Media during that period. Secondly I commended him for his open, honest, franks and transparent but most of all authentic portrayal and genuine content. Hindsight a great thing subsequently why I thirdly suggested and recommend a sequel "We've All Been Trumped."
Two Aberdonian girls approached me after questions and answers suggesting that my take, plus contribution would have been quite compelling as Granite folk, Scots and the rest of the World would have been intrigued to know that other indigenous sustainable ideas had been promoted and advocated but had been snubbed as well. Sowing the seed, reaping the harvest and ringing Scotland's till. Empty sound bites via Mr Salmond, however the tide has turned politically on Trump, Scots are more than familiar with the turncoat phrase seems history does repeat itself. Perhaps now that the Red Herring has shown his colours the Scottish debate on Independence may have a twist in it's tail?
Aberdeen has future aspirations and desires to become the renewable energy hub of the Northern hemisphere but surely that should be from the grass roots up. Rather than the destruction of a Site Of Specialist Scientific Interest with the planting of marram grass hardly constitutes a sustainable philosophy. As Robert the Bruce's Father famously said in the BraveHeart movie and I quote "You Knew My Mind You Allowed Yourself To Be Deceived." Then of course "If we don't fight for them them they take away our houses." another quotation voiced on the battlefield. In hundreds of years has anything really changed?
Last but by no means least I had the privilege and honour of being a guest at David and Moira Milne's lovely house/castle. The converted coast guard station at Balmedie, Aberdeenshire. Having woke up there on a lovely July 15th 2012 Sunday morning. I can now relate as to why the various residents have been appreciative of their once pristine environment and formally cherished ecology, plus unspoilt surroundings. You can choose your loyal friends and family but you can't pick your neighbours i.e Trump or rely on the Government to support the indigenous. Political Pigs and Fat Cats might fly that day perhaps David Milne's nod to his not so illustrious and unconscientious neighbour. Heavens forbid if we should be showered like cats and dogs with ethics and practice! http://instagram.com/p/NHHtmWN3tK/
Documentary "The Spirit of Business & The Values of Principles"
Aim to be Michael Moore of Scotland, not mythological, true to myself, and my beliefs for a very successful and progressive Scotland via unique innovation, ideas, concepts and visions, that will continue sustainable lasting and meaningful legacies for Scotland! Through macro and micro initiative and "Method of Operating" being ignored or traceable, organic locally sourced incentives being wasted. We will be exploring Banking, Finance irregularities, and catastrophic failures, plus continual self centred preservation monopolies. Through to humongous calamities by bureaucrats, politicians via continual errors in judgment, detrimental to our wealth and well-being. Plus business and planning processes and the inconsistencies via a multitude of planning and business applications that have no consistent logic or coherent pattern? Scholars and Academics, Historians, Physicists, Psychiatrists through to various Professionals from different specialist areas and fields and Business People, plus ordinary folk will be involved in the process and partake via interviews. Wishing to contribute towards making a meaningful difference, evoking, plus proving significant change for the better of us all.
The spirit, camaraderie, unity of the residents at Menie has not truly or honestly been captured. We intend to signify their courage and conviction in the face of belligerent and arrogant tyranny.
The World Need a Jolly Green Giant
We don't have a "Jolly Green Giant" Corporation but we do need an Eco Environmentally Sustainable Iconic Brand, with ethical values and principles via it's environmental stance.
Angels Of The North "Scottish Angels & Saints"
Calling Scottish Patriots romantic & passionate about Eco values. Creative enlightenment revived, vigor & valor of our spirit, culture, heritage and history, renew innovation. Takes one icon to act.
Thinking out of the box
Therefore I have formed a Co-operative/Consortium like motive operandi applying inherent value and intrinsic value towards it current pledgeholders, future shareholders and anticipated investors. Beyond the mere principle value of itself and Co-operative/Consortium Partners, who share the same values and principles towards executing, performing and delivering overwhelming and unconditional current pledgeholders value, future shareholders and anticipated investors value and returns, beyond mere monetary values and principles but more importantly Ecological and Environmental dividends and returns. Towards making a substantial and prolific difference, through evoking, plus provoking necessary change in attitude, behaviour, culture towards the ecology, environment and the built environment.

I Stand For Goodness What Do You Stand For?
We all have the ability to stand up and be counted. Lift our heads above the parapet, make a difference, be that change. Especially unique and innovative ethical ideas for the better of all.
Other Local Heroes
Extremely admirable the protest and statement Doctor David Kennedy made. I would concur that Donald Trump is by no means an exemplar or shinning idealogy for students to admire or follow.
