I really REALLY promise to have a funny story for you tomorrow. Honest !! I have just arrived home from our usual Boys’ day out. My friend does not like being round his house on Thursdays when the cleaner and his wife go through the house like a tornado. So us guys disappear for the duration of such a traumatic experience for a man.
We were having our usual coffee in our usual Thursday Spanish bar and we were talking to the English bar keep. And I was really shocked. I am an average man, with an average pension, in an average apartment. I have no political etc beliefs. She said that her daughter had been on an apprenticeship course learning carpentry. Her wage is €75 per week. The only problem is that she has NOT been paid for months. The mother is feeding her at the bar, giving her food parcels and helping her daughter any way she can. 2012, EU country, food parcels?? And she is not the only one. Dozens of villagers of all ages have worked long hours in extremely hot temperatures, generally laborious work. And most have not seen a euro for their work. You’ll be paid by Christmas the Town Hall told them. Your teenage kids will be okay as they can go back and live with mum and dad. Hello…mum and dad are probably in a more worse situation than the kids.
I’ve got to say this. I don’t care who is reading this, the King of Spain or a farmer in a paddy field in central China. The ruling families, Mahdi, the banks, self perpetuating governments, etc. YOU ARE EVIL !! You don’t give a toss about anything except your own goal of taking over the world, controlling industry, health with your poisonous synthetic drugs etc. “Oh, we really care about the people” BS you only care about your power and control by FEAR. But, sunshine, I am NOT afraid of you and your evil ways and very soon you will be taken down and left to rot in the dregs of your lies, false hopes, casino stock exchanges etc. You don’t give a toss about one girl who is learning a skill and you can’t be bothered to pay her, but you fill your corrupt banks, which you OWN, while millions starve, worry and die. YOU ARE EVIL !!
Religious fanatics, you back. You bank rolled the Nazis during WW2. You will do anything to destroy anything wholesome. You create wars, you twist anything one way or the other. You are secretive…..why, because YOU ARE EVIL ….you live in darkness plotting your next move. You WILL be taken down sooner than you think. And you are scared because you know who is coming for you. Good, be scared !!
Stepping down from my soapbox…..I’ll go and feed the cats now.
