About What to Talk?

Too much happening all at once. Plane crashes killing too many Ethiopians and some poor man at the airport around the corner. Gun happy, people hating white supremacist trying to kill the Umma. Too many dead.

An economist with the world on a string commits suicide. What on earth was wrong that you take your very accomplished life at 58? People starving in Yemen. We’re in bed with Saudi Arabia. Orange Slush and White Bread in the Oval. This is a nightmare of elephantine proportions.

I want to say something meaningful, something with malice, snark, sarcasm ’cause I can see that all day. I don’t want to contribute to that. There is too much that is not humane in the air. Every time I see Orange Slush or any of his ilk, I cringe. How is it that they are continuing to destroy the nation and cannot be stopped? The nation has always been divided.

Prime Minister Ardern is a wonder to behold. There is no comparing her to Orange Slush. I want to be a Kiwi. Look at the response to a cultural crisis. Immediate change. If only we had any competent leadership.

      1. Time for writing, for singing and for prayers. Even wild man “Snoop dog” song “No guns”. Reaching out for peace. If we stand alone, silence. Government fear unity and large demonstrations.

      2. Fear. That is why there is an attempt made to make protest illegal in this country, staged by the Oval Occupier. We have been kept divided since the 60s. I remember when we knew who the common enemy was.

      3. You know, I was a soldier, too. You’re right. Just tired of standing for such a long time and even though I know we are not alone, it sure feels like it a lot of the time.
