It’s funny the mental linkages that the random firing of synapses create sometimes. I have been working at home a lot recently and my good and tolerant woman is out working. Nothing wrong with that as it’s just the way our work patterns are at the moment.
I was doing my bit to help out by keeping things like the place clean and the laundry up to date (stop sniggering – I heard that). It occurred to me that many of us are happy to whinge, moan and complain on how bad things are.
Basically we want someone else to do the boring, mundane and even unpleasant jobs. I have no time for that sort of indulgent crap. Nobody is going to do it for us. No white charger or cavalry troop will come riding over the hill to save our asses. We have get stuck in and do it ourselves.
To follow on from my last post I see that there is still some life left in the comatose body of Irish politics. So those soppy love songs weren’t far from the truth after all. You only miss what is dear to you once it’s gone. In this case it was the sovereignty that generations of Irish people have fought and died for.
The sight of fat, over-privileged Euro pigs marching in and telling the Irish government what to do – to make them an offer they couldn’t refuse – was too much to take. The already bought and paid-for lackeys are trying to carry on as usual – here’s their austerity budget. I caught this on Suraci’s blog (he’s back) - Jim Corr trying to rally the fight back.
We have never been reticent before about telling an all-powerful global empire to shove it up their ass. It’s almost a genetically conditioned response. My guess is to watch out for a number of lower caste banksters to off themselves due to ‘pressure’ or ‘financial strain’ soon. This could get interesting.
Meanwhile over in the USS of Amerika we shall soon learn the effect of the National Opt-Out Day. I hear the US airports are very quiet today – unusually so considering this is one of their busiest days.
I can well understand why concerned citizens would prefer to avoid the airports completely rather than stand up for their right to be treated like a sentient human being. Anyone defending their rights is likely to face jail time and that would not look good on their CV in the current economic climate.
Abstinence is an understandable choice considering the natural reaction of any father/husband is to beat the crap out of anyone molesting their partners and children. There has been a lot written recently on this issue so we are well aware of what is involved.
All around us we see people getting ready. No one is immune and the fun and games are about to begin. We see the sleepwalking masses rouse from their fast food induced haze. The last 24 hours have seen more riots and protests in Britain and now Portugal.
They can try to distract us with war mongering in Korea but that is yet another distraction from the many dangers we all face on our own doorsteps. There are enough of us now to ensure that we all keep on track of the real issues. When the dirty work needs to be done we need to be ready to do it ourselves.
