Wiith the very current and ongoing, events over the last couple of weeks, and especially now Riots In London, Economic Collapse, Environmental Disasters, it does become easy to believe there is no "Alternative" or way out. We as I write this patiently and expectantly await Obamas words to save our jobs, pensions and families?
We await with batted breathe and fear for those there, what violence will be brought to London tonight?
Wonder if the water is radioactive or not?

16 superheroes on streets of Britain
Mr Hayhurst, who wears a custom-made £200 blue-and-black Lycra costume – which his mum helped him buy from a firm in America – says his only special power is a supernatural desire to make the world a better place.
‘When people see me coming up, it does tend to stun them into silence,’ he said.
‘I just carry on trying to get them to calm down, and eventually most of them do. If I think things are getting a bit hairy, I just back off and phone the police.

'They know what I am doing and have been very kind to me. Some of my friends think I am a bit odd but all I want to do is try and get people to like each other. I just want to do good in the world.’
Mr Hayhurst said his main aim was to sort out rows between people coming out of pubs or simply fighting on the streets. He lives with his mother Jennifer, 61, and grandad Alfred, 91, and also hands out clothing and food parcels to the homeless in Manchester city centre.
