I mean really. Some people live in complete delusion. A cold hard case of what Rowdy Roddy Piper would call a reality check is needed. Don’t get me started on politics. I could be here all day going off about what I think is wrong with people, but I will say that there is a lack of common decency in the political system and I also think it will never change. New parties come to the forefront and promise to deal with the issues and say that they understand the issues and understand the voice of the people, but this is a lie.
I could go on about the quality of current affairs shows in this country of mine, but that would be pointless. Last night I saw that the main story on a current affairs show was about a bird competition. Yes, you read that right. A bird competition. Really? Birds? Who really cares? I mean, birds are cool, but to have a competition featuring them seems loco. And they have like a hundred judges for this thing. Please excuse me while I shoot myself in the face.
This is why I don’t watch a lot of this type of thing. Although, there are some that I do like. The family/community minded current affairs doesn’t interest me at all. Kind of like the friendly talk you get from the power companies as they charge you a small fortune for the power that you use. Is it just me or is it becoming difficult to justify existence within this model that is modern urban living?
Then there is the situation in the international scene. That is more screwed up than anything we are seeing in our own country. Like the rebels that shot down that plane. A plane that happened to come from the same airline that lost a plane four months ago and still hasn’t been found. The whole situation has blown up in Russia's face and there is a certain humour to that. Not for the families, and I feel for them, I really do, but there is a larger picture here. The Russians armed the country for insurrection and the international community cared but not enough to do anything about that. Then these ass-hats, untrained jerk-knobs decide to shoot down this plane full of Europeans. The Russians have egg on their face because they created this environment. Things will now happen because innocent people have died in the civil war that the Russians have instigated.
Getting a little too serious? Yeah I agree. Let’s talk about the Commonwealth Games! It’s like the Olympics but without any of the big hitters. No Americans, Chinese or Russians. Basically, it’s a chance for the Queen of England...oh wait, the Scottish are still a part of her empire or whatever, and so it’s the Queen of the Commonwealth. Commonwealth? Really? Is there an average wealth percentage within all of these countries that include some African states? Really? I think not. I think these games are a joke, but I don’t really like the Olympics, so yeah. But at least the Olympics has everyone. What kind of world sports event has only half the countries that would usually be at a world sporting event? But I suppose it’s a chance for other countries to win something.
Right, rant finished. Whether you agree or not makes little difference to me. Read or don’t read, do or don’t do, there is no try? Whatever.
Peace, my homies. I’m out.
