My increasingly spasmodic and unpredictable attendance here is due to a more chaotic personal lifestyle that is beyond manageable control, yesterday was no exception.
A planned day changed with an unscheduled trip to the city, on return, asked swmbo to rest so she started to watch the TVOne infotainment hour.
Then heard an astonishing fact when the entertainer announced the never before claimed news that the "City Mission" had discovered an " increasing demand" for their " free food parcels".
Astonishing just seemed so inadequate somehow and preparing tea had to be suspended while a small tincture of granny Clampet's " medcin" was imbibed as I digested this totally from left field revellation. I mean it is almost beyond belief that demand for some offering, provided at the expense of a person not identified, and promoted as "free" could increase exponentially. Hells bells even a beneficiary of long standing might just workout the economic advantages of creating increased discretionary spending by avoiding buying food.
Evidently that discovery was news!!!
Another bit of astonishing, not announced with that bit of mind boggling discovery, is the clear linkage of guilt to be harnessed at this time of good cheer, with the clamour for funds by the Sallies, the City Mission and other do gooders who seem hell bent on excusing crap parents from providing for their spawn at every opportunity.
Meanwhile in the real world worn out people who provided for their offspring in earlier times at considerable reduction in personal comforts, suffer as they wait for medical/ surgical relief because they have been forced to abandon medical insurance due to savage premium cost increases. A wait that can be extended considerably by self indulgent morons inflicting harm safe in the knowledge that the public health system has clear capacity to relieve their suffering that was clearly avoidable.
