Also one of the reasons Africa is in such dire problems was grain sold that could not be resown the following year as it was genetically sterilised. It was unsuitable for the ground. Not even the natural food for these people, they didn't like it. Farming equipment was sold to these countries without the means to service it, putting them in great debt that is constantly multiplying.
Why sell arms? Why make them? Because it is a business. It is a means of eradicating. Selling arms to both sides in a conflict is huge business. Why does everybody think the problems all over the world become escalated? because someone is making and selling weapons.
The art of war, and fighting a war are completely different. The art of war is diplomacy. That no fighting ensues is good diplomacy. When dealing with 'despots' it is always the people who put them in power that are culpable. If I remember, Saddam Hussain, Bin Laden, Ghaddaffi, just look up some 20th century history, and they are each puppets that decided to cut their strings from America.
That the American people themselves all have amnesia is probably something to do with the bread they eat!
We are now saying that it is lack of rains that is causing starvation for these people, yet it has been proven with the industrialisation of America came changes to the African Climate.
I would suggest cancelling all third world debt, and the Irish debt for the atrocities committed during the Potato Famine,. A country that is in debt can not recover. It's people 'starve'. Sort out Cyprus, and then cancel a high proportion of Greek debt. Someone who can't pay... can't pay. Don't keep lending then you won't get in debt!
I was brought up with the adage, 'He who goes a borrowing goes a sorrowing'. Along with other sage advice.
I cut down a load of Fennel today, oh yes fennel tea helps with digestion and I think will be a good pesticide, I am trying it out on my beans. I never notice any pests on the fennel or the stinging nettles so I make 'tea' by soaking it in cold water for a few hours and then watering it over my veg. I chuck my washing up water over the roses to keep the bugs of them too.
I would suggest a reversion to good old home economics, If you haven't saved up for it don't buy it. I also can't see how anyone's economy can become stable while the 'futures' market exists. Let them all go and get a proper job. You can't trade something you do not physically have posession of. It's ridiculous.
Multiple Taxation is also a bete noir. Think of it like this.
Oil at source, company drilling gets taxed.
Transport to refinery gets taxed.
Refinery gets taxed.
Next transporter gets taxed.
Distributer gets taxed.
Garage gets taxed.
End user gets taxed twice. On the money they earn, then on the money they spend at the pump.
Its ok saying we put tax up 1% but that's at least 8 nibbles of 1% that ends up in somebody's coffers, and the end user is the one who is at the mercy of all of this system. What are we cows? I certainly feel I am getting 'milked'.
No wonder no Government or oil production company wishes to offer a carbon free solution, which we have had for over 60 years.
During the war when Jersey was occupied and there was no petrol, many delivery vans put a canvass 'bag' on the roof with cow manure in it and retrofitted their car to run on the gas produced. When needs must, and there is no alternative you just get on with it.
There are solutions, just that everyone with a vested interest, or 'bribed' into keeping the status quo isn't going to change the system.
It is now the consumer that hs power to effect change. Lets see what we can all do together!
Just don't buy a car over 1000cc! Anything else for short journeys is a luxury. And try and stay off Airplanes a bit more check the asmospheric results after 9/11. Do the reduction slowly or you'll really frack everything up!
Sleep tight, sweet dreams, and anyone with a bad concience turn around, and do something good with the rest of your life.
