You probably didn’t know about the huge Anti-Bush protests on October 5th either. Hardly surprising as it didn’t make it to the news. I wonder why ?
In fact, if you’ve been watching the news in Britain or America you’d be forgiven for forgetting about the two wars we’re currently engaged in. And if you watch Fox News you could even be forgiven for thinking that nasty little Republican perve Senator Foley was a Democrat.
Nothing the media gets het up about seems to be of the slightest importance, yet meanwhile terrifying things are underway that don’t get a mention. We know all about the two almost identical party conferences that took place over the past few weeks by the two almost identical political parties. We know about posh-spice’s fake tits, we know about plucky mums fighting for their childrens rights to eat shit food and we know about bloody fucking football. But whenever something of substance gets close to the mass media, it gets stifled and the media is happy to comply.
Sometimes it feels very lonely listening to the news because it’s like they’re talking in a different language. We know what’s been going on, but they side step it and start talking about Boris Johnson.
Ramble ramble ramble I know.
But time is passing and we haven’t got any closer to moving to America. It feels like we’re in some weird sort of limbo stasis at the moment and watching America almost complete the move to fascism isn’t helping us feel more secure. The only “comfort” is that England is going the same way, possibly faster. OK, America has its fair share of pig-ignorant, in-bred, rabid, loonies but the UK has quite a few too. The lumpen masses in both countries are convinced that they’re going to get blown up by a terrorist bomb any day, and are more worried about muslims and polish immigrants than the systematic removal of rights and freedoms that’s currently underway. Right this isn’t going anywhere…sorry.
Some cheery things:
- Alex is getting married and having babies! which is weirding me out and making me smile a lot.
