The BLAME game

Who do we blame when things go wrong? Who is really to blame for this?

We have to accept that things we do can go wrong sometimes, therefore it is not fair to blame anyone but ourselves.

We are the ones who try things out, who will decide whether or not something is worth doing therefore, we should accept responsibility for our actions whether things go right or wrong.

Word of the day

Naiad queen Salmacis has been stirred

Is it any wonder that people in the UK have woken up to the dangers of the Tories? Not everyone, yet, but I think we are getting there. If ever there was a time for a change it is now, not just in the UK but everywhere on the planet. The pandemic has damaged economies across the globe, some worse than others (notably the two worst hit by excessive deaths are the most damaged economies). It’s time for a change, for us all to wake up and see we are not citizens of this country or that, we are all Global Citizens. What happens to one happens to us all because of the greed of some.

The climate emergency isn’t going to vanish overnight as long as some in our midst still want to boost their profits, we changed it immensely this year in countries that people thought were never going to change. Lock down did that, improved the quality of the air by less pollution being generated. No my friend, I know that was only temporary and big business wants to get back to the wanton destruction of our natural eco system. That’s why we have to make a stand, either you want an end to the destruction of the planet, or you are willing to sacrifice every human on this planet for the destruction of the few.

Science has told us that the pandemic was transferred from animals whose habitat we destroyed. I feel the time is ripe for a new revolution, outlaw greed and profit, work together for the benefit of all and we can all benefit. Keep the status quo and we all die together, all because some of us want even more wealth accumulated than they already have. What is the point in increasing wealth for the top 1% who already have more than they could spend in 50 lifetimes? The purpose of money was to remove the barter system, when people are dying in the name of profit isn’t it time to move away from money and treat everyone exactly the same?

Making sure we all have a roof over our heads, food in our bellies and health care when it is needed, those should be the priorities for everyone. Basic human rights are not some random things to be given to some and denied to others, each and every one of us deserves to be treated with respect, empathy and given those basic human rights as a starting point, don’t tell yourself that this section or that section, this person or that person doesn’t deserve these rights because unless they apply to everyone equally then they apply to none.

Jeremy Corbyn has been vilified by the establishment since 2015 when he became the leader of the Labour Party, why is that? Because he was (and still is) a threat to the establishment. The Tories want to continue doing what they always have done, austerity measures affect the poorest in society not the wealthiest. The wealthiest will increase their wealth even while people are starving, they don’t care, neither do their Government. So why do poor people keep voting for them time after time? Because they keep hoping against hope that they can lift themselves out of the mire and become wealthy themselves because the Tories said they could. They know the record of these same CONservatives is to lie and lie and renege on promises made during an election campaign. Yet they keep hoping that these liars will one day start telling the truth, never going to happen, dear friend.

If we want change then we have to make it ourselves, no one else will give it to us on a plate. The liars prosper because people keep believing the lies, thinking the leopard will change its spots, but it won’t. Why should they start telling the truth when lying wins them elections? It all started in 1979 when the biggest liar of them all won her first election victory. That showed them the way to win big was the con, and they have been doing it ever since.

One of these days I’m gonna dance with the devil

For the last two weeks (perhaps longer) I’ve been coming on here to write this post, then left without even putting the title in. However, I decided that it’s about time to bite the bullet, bare my soul and get this done before I totally forget what I wanted to say.

Isn’t it funny how many people are now saying that Covid-19 is a hoax? Even some in hospitals in the USA, with the virus are claiming it is a hoax. They must have really mild symptoms then if they think it is mild. I think I may have caught it last year after my winter flu jab because I was ill for over a month with flu like symptoms, only much worse than normal from the jab. I normally suffer for about a week after getting my jab but last year I was as weak as a new born kitten, had no energy and zero intention to do anything except feel sorry for myself.

As I said that lasted about a month, then I slowly began to return to normal, housework was getting done, I was out and about spending more time out than in, which my free bus pass enabled me to do. Then, about 3 weeks ago, I started feeling as though I couldn’t function, my brain felt as though it was on fire and everything was getting on top of me again. Last week I started struggling for breath when I was lying down and my ears have started filling up with wax again.

If I have got this virus again it is a whole lot worse than last year. Of course, I missed my appointment for my flu jab this year and am waiting now to see if they can fit me in again for it, or when they can fit me in for it. I have a doctor’s appointment this afternoon to see if there’s anything that I can try that I haven’t done yet. I mean I don’t have any of the major symptoms they tell you to look out for, cough that lasts for ages or flu-like symptoms. Anyway, it’s getting late so I think I should just post this now and maybe come back and finish it later.

There’s nothing you can see that isn’t shown

L is for the lonely, those poor souls sleeping rough

O is for the nothing they have but contempt

V is for the voice that they have lost

E is for everyone who walks past them unseeing

I is for those idiots who aspire to be

S is for the super-rich who cannot see

A is for the animals dying in the fires

L is for the loss of the planet we hold dear

L is for the losers who don’t care and won’t hear

Y is for those of you who see but will not say

O is for the ones who are on zero hour contracts

U is for us who care about everyone

N is for needless death because of Government inaction

E is for elephants who are about to become extinct

E is for everyone who refuses to believe the truth

D is for dying because we don’t have a voice

The whole is Love because that’s all you need

Jerks – lock down poem

This is so poignant and beautiful. Want to leave a comment please do so on the original post as this isn’t mine just something I thought was brilliant.

Jerks chase without

Understanding

Speak without

Truth and feeling

Sing without engaging

The heart strings

And know only

Yesterday

Come the hour

All powers

Leave behind confused

Minds…

*******
