TOUGH WEEK

June 4, 2017

Well this has been a rough week for the world and the good old USA. There have been several terrorist attacks the last on yesterday in London, England. All this is making everyone very nervous and now they’re talking about controlling the Internet. If this would stop the terrorists I would be very happy, but it won’t. What will happen is censorship. In other words the people most affected by this would be the average user, whose ability to view information would now be controlled by politicians such a Putin and the Trumpster. Now there probably won’t be a lot of objections to this especially by those that support the afore mentioned idiots. Fear has a way of making people accept thing that seem in the beginning to make them safer but in the long run will actually make them more unsafe. Other people will support this simply by doing nothing. These are the people that don’t want to be bothered by politics because they don’t believe it affects them they just want to be left alone. They have their lives all planned out they don’t worry about health insurance or retirement. Now I have friends in both categories those that support the Trumpster and believe all the negative stuff is just fake news. These people flood Facebook and other social media with articles from alternate sources which are more fantastic then what they call fake news. My other group of friends just doesn’t want to listen to more bullshit and I have to admit a lot of what’s but out there is just that, the same old bullshit. And I have another group of friends that just take sides because their either Democrats who believe Republicans are the devil incarnate or Republicans that believe the same about the Democrats. I don’t live n the US so I have a unique perspective because I get to see news from a lot of other sources as well as talk to a lot of people other than US citizens. I worry about other things as well like what kind of world we are leaving for our children and grand children. Just because you have your life all set and don’t have a concern in the world or put more bluntly don’t give a FUCK, that doesn’t mean everything is going to be Ok for the next generation. I see so much of this in the way Governments go about their business and corporations count their profits. These people really don’t give a fuck about what’s going to happen to the world twenty years from now as long as they can keep the money flowing in. Now I don’t want you to think that I disrespect my friends with opinions other than mine. No sir, that’s what our country is all about differences and how we deal with them. My friends are my friends and they can think whatever they want and I will argue with them but I will always respect their opinion and remain their friend. Look I can keep writing this blog but its Sunday and I have a birthday party to get too so maybe we’ll continue this during the week and maybe we won’t. This is Flounder and Fats saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
