Have A Cig!

Statistics are absolutely wonderful, they’re like puddy, you can mold them into anything you want.

30% of deadly car crashes are caused by alcohol consumption, 70 % were ‘clean’ impacts. So that it is 70% saver to drive with than without alcohol in the blood. To hell with DIU charges! Cheers.

The western adult in the 16th century enjoyed an average lifespan of only 40 years. Until tobacco got discovered, smoking its leaves into and through the lungs becoming the rage and doubling the average western adult lifespan to 80 years in little more than 3 centuries! So light up, I say! And soon enough we all live to be a 120!

Traffic accidents will happen and it is a fact that by spending more hours in it, the chance of getting hit increases in equal proportion. So that by getting in quickly and speeding your ass off to get the hell out, actually reduces mortality rates on the roads. Plank it, man!

Construction has come to a standstill, millions became unemployed, now sitting at home. But the Government congratulates itself on its policies, for statistically having reduced work related accidents. Destroy some more industries, and you’ll also bring inflation down to zilch.

And so on….

Piece of Tail

Even though the unbridled Right may have got a nation into trouble, the tail cannot wag the dog, and so it is ideologically difficult for a government of the Left to pull a country quickly out of its economic crisis. By nature it can steer but it cannot drive. Even when it becomes mature and takes the measures that it must, it ironically and strictly speaking often ceases to be… quite Leftist. To wit, see the inept mess it finds itself in, in Greece, in Spain, in Portugal and even in the very USA.

On the other hand immature, un-ceding populist Socialism manifests itself in nations with an immature elite, Left and Right, solving nothing except exterior sabre-rattling, while often ending up a sordid one-man dictatorship.

But again and incongruously an intolerant Dictature of the Left soon becomes a de facto regime of the far Right. Take for instance the Maoist ideology that all structures must periodically be destroyed to keep the ‘revolution’ alive: by unfortunately excluding the Communist Party under Mao Zedong himself, for years doing nothing for the Chinese, it became clear that Mao was… an extremely lousy Maoist, not much different from Franco.

As it turned out though Communism in its phantom struggle with capitalist consumerism had overlooked that by themselves goods are not evil and that economic freedom creates wealth, that open trade despite its excesses is the best overall incomes distributor under the sun. But China still remains a closed political prison for far too many and improving the food of Nobel peace prize winner Liu Xiaobo not quite the policy the Chinese themselves are pining for. With Liu saying, yeah, but I still get Chinese food. Bring me a steak…

Immature Socialism is bad Socialism and even good Socialism must play by the rules of common sense or will eventually harden into some sort of dysfunctional dictatorship. Yet, immature Conservatism ain’t much better and has its own drastic failings. So why don’t we set up not a Tea but The Give & Take Party, the best darn tail-wagging dog on the block? For indeed, there are harrowingly obscene examples of the ugly Right ‘at work’, and on the ugly Left the insane French ‘syndicats’ can quickly be identified, public workers included, those who never strike on their holidays, or the destructive Greek unions or Spanish workers not realising that in order to strike one has to have a job and be already somewhat privileged in a country with 21% unemployment, yet not demonstrating to help those suffering comrades and their innocent families, but for themselves getting better pensions.

You see, on both sides there’s plenty of dirt to go around and the little guy unfortunately not always equipped to fight, but too often perpetuating his own prediccaments with a little help from leaders who couldn’t run a fruitstore.

So that under these circumstances vision and give & takism on both sides, remaining suchs noble objectives!

Yahoo Ya All

Sometimes they’re Jewish, sometimes they’re Polish,
Sometimes they’re grey, sometimes they’re gay,
Some are mechanics, some are miners,
but should they try and ride one,
all would fall off a horse

When me and my gal rode off into the sunset, Jesus was our guide…

Yeah!

Country & Western singers make me laugh, speaking with a Southern drawl like they’re all from Nashville, when real cattle ranches are in Wyoming and then wearing that cool Stetson when they haven’t been near a cow except perhaps a cooked one at McDonald’s.

When me and my gal rode off into the sunset, Jesus was our guide….

Ahumm! Yeah…
