Or Is It?
Bloggers around the world, myself included, endeavour to put a more natural, ordinary slant on what we see in the news, exchange on blogs and so forth. To a certain extent and for little, if any, pecuniary ambition, try to bring to the awareness of others the state of our social and economic mess, as inhabitants of this quite glorious Planet.
In these efforts there is a degree of futility. When we look at the obnoxious developments that take place. When we see the paucity of intellect and leadership it all can become quite overwhelming. Troops and civilians dying unnecessarily in wars being fought over and over again, such as Afghanistan.
Egotistical despots toppling in one place, encouraged in others. The two faced hypocrisy of the West. It's global corporate ambitions aided and abetted by a distinct lack of morality or decency. Above all else is the repetition of historic failures.
Is The EU hell bent on subjugating a whole continent to this folly? You bet it is. Indeed continents. I cannot speak for ought else but my own experiences and observations of The UK's hoi poloi complicity in all this nonsense and grotesque nastiness.
My own Herefordshire Council is as rotten to the core as it gets. Their mimicry of the wholesale greed they rub up against is pathetic. Apparently most lucrative for the pieces of silver they can garner in return for their embracement of moral turpitude. "If it's good enough for MPs then..........".
So my mood today, as I read Richard's and others' offerings, sponsored my post title. We have optimists, Princes of hope and very rebellious courage. For such as he, I am grateful. Sadly, Richard tends to be more accurate in his belief that we are powerless. Who to believe has the correct vision. My head says Richard, my heart, Captain Ranty.
There again I am a cautious optimist. After all, Snotty and Labour got a bloody nose. What if Saif gets to tell all! What if the EU continues to implode for lack of pride and real money! Could we see the back of Merkel Obummer, Cleggy even? Then there's the new Mccafferty, Huhne. Why, even Boy Dave may be toppled and a real Britain take the helm. Why, even the Baggies won yesterday!
OK, this blogging isn't so bad after all. I feel so much better and thank anyone prepared to read and tolerate my puny efforts. Let's go get the bastards!
