Nonsense! If you learn then you don't blunder. It's better to ask if you don't know than pretend you know when you don't.
I blunder my way through this place every day.
Back on topic...
What I find interesting is the media's description of all the anti-government people in the recent events.
In Tunisia and Egypt they were "protesters", in Libya too they were "protesters" when things kicked off, but now they are armed they are called
"rebels" which to me sounds much more nasty and threatening. Still Joe Bloggs and average Joe though.
Perception manipulation eh?
So here we go ....bombseye camera footage on news specials while Japan lies burning, drowning and bleeding. Messed up or what?
SO glad I live in the middle of nowhere. Not because I want to turn my back but because I can do what I can when I can without feeling oppressive
influence waiting to knock on my door.
The people in the local bar are as ignorant as can be until I walk in and remind them of the world outside. Something I always look forward to.
Good luck to the Libyan people.
