You know what?
At the end of the day, all we can hope for is some quiet time with family or a pet or a cold drink, a roof over our head, a nice meal and a good nights sleep.
Everything else is just a distraction.
I do enjoy your posts. As you Aussies say, "No worries, mate!"
There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part! You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels…upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!
You called me obtuse today for understanding things my own way, its ok have a cookie
I'm not even Americanedit on 7-1-2014 by Indigent because: (no reason given)
Recentley I found out that in Australia you guys pay $27 dollars for a pack of cigarettes...Damn that's harsh. Have agreat day, and a great year.
Here's the thing I don't get. You like to bash us and our government, but then you turn around and tell us how horrible we are for not having even more big government run programs like socialized medicine. That doesn't make much sense. If you want us to get rid of our government, the last thing you should want if for us to have programs that make us even more dependent on our American PTB staying power. Once we become dependent on them even more than many already are, we are less likely to get rid of them.
Think about it. Which politician are you going to vote for: the one who promises to protect the government program you consider essential or the one whom you perceive to be threatening it?
And I guarantee you that the ones in power now will be the ones promising even more government cheese to the masses. It's how they got in power in the first place.
