IMAGINE IF YOU WILL?



Let us for a moment imagine a world where journalists and news purveyors  were a reflection of the politics of  all, maintained personal beliefs and bias as things to be left outside their place of work and equally represented a true cross section of the views  across the spectrum.

Instead of tiresome repeating of Trump derangement syndrome, there were items on what he is and continues to achieve, in carrying out what he promised, that resulted in election success,  to lead the infotainment hour for a state sponsored TV channel night after night.
Cardinal George Pell could just get on with defending the historical allegations he was a bad Priest that traverse much of his over half a century of pretty remarkable work on behalf of his diminishing  parishioner numbers in fulfillmment of what he saw as a "calling" all those years ago.
The United kingdom could get on with untangling itself from the mission creep that saw a trade block c1970s  morph into a political union that achieved all that Germany failed to gain from slaughtering the youth of two generations. Only to then proceed to hand it all to a religious sect that was begun by a  murderous pedeo fanatic one and a half thousand years ago in the deserts of Arabia
Hillary Clinton would be at home in a Federal Penitentiary somewhere out on the Western Plains of her United States.
Kim Jong Un would be a pariah and sorted by nations who stand by as he lurches towards an end suited to his despotic personally directed domination of a tired, hungry and lacking so much of what the world is capable of delivering, people.
Disastrous Polling for Andrew Little's vehicle for electoral elevation would have bottomed out at around his PPM number and he would have been consigned to the dustbin of history months ago.

No, aint gunna happn, the manipulative mass media continue to make shit up and the sheeple are lulled into a state of stupor where a new money tree will  blossom and bear fruit as NZ Inc plunges into a bankrupt state to rival Venezuela.

All because no one saw what the education institutions deliver as the march continues.
They came for the guns and I did nothing as I did not own any.
They took my hard earned money to give to the idle and disorderly and I did nothing because I still had enough although the cream was gone.
They destroyed family traditions and I did nothing as my family had resilience to survive.
They promoted selective treatments for different races, ages and cultures and I did nothing because my adherence to my values was largely untouched.
They lived a head in the clouds lifestyle at no personal cost yet rewarding to most of the drones, in ways they could only have dreamed about as goals from their own effort, and I did nothing.

Of course if news was announced each morning and then reasserted each night in an unbiased and  balanced manner, in words not laboriously produced by wordsmiths, easily understood, the world could be a better place.
I am too old to really care and Venezuela is but a blip on the march of history, so easily ignored as it is too far away, bit sad for people there  who can't buy toilet paper let alone feed the systems that it could be useful for, as a modern acoutrement of personal hygiene.

Just Imagine.

Imagine, if you will, a blogger who can write clear, concise posts. :-)

The only sign of Trump derangement syndrome is from those who are so deranged as to think Trump is anything other than a poorly educated property shyster, a man with a vocabulary of almost 400 words (yes, he knows them all, just uses the best), a misogynist, pussy grabbing A grade asshole (who tried to hit on the French President's wife).

The Predident went to France to join the Bastille Day celebrations. "And he called me, he said, would you come, it’s Bastille Day — 100 years since World War I. And I said, that’s big deal, 100 years since World War I" History, who needs to know history.

The Predident is of course, a decisive man, known for his clear thinking and policy making skills as exemplified by this statement of intent "“If it happens that will be wonderful and if it doesn't that will be ok too,” Mr Trump said at a joint press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron, appearing to leave the matter open-ended. “We’ll see what happens,” he added.

It might be nice to have a blog commenter named Te Kauwhaka who could spell and desist from personal abuse.

GD, funny you stole my next post, not quite word for word. While the juvenile media obsesses about trivia, the people who count get on with doing their jobs, unreported.

I am sure that Trump might remind Macron of the tens of thousands of Americans who are buried in France after trying to rescue France again from ignominy.

Trump would, but as we already know, Trump has no grasp of history and is ignorant about both "World Wars".

Of course, should he make so bold, Macron would do well to educate Trump, and Americans in general, of the assistance France provided during the Revolutionary War.

Between 1778 and 1782 the French provided supplies, arms and ammunition, uniforms, and, most importantly, troops and naval support to the beleaguered Continental Army. The French navy transported reinforcements, fought off a British fleet, and protected Washington’s forces in Virginia. French assistance was crucial in securing the British surrender at Yorktown in 1781.

Sometimes historical ignorance is a blessing. Very few, if any, world leaders are taken to see Napoleons tomb, this is due to the fact that, although venerated in France for uniting the country, he is seen as a narcissistic tyrant who is responsible for millions of deaths in pursuit of personal glory and acclaim whose word was absolute law..

Trump took it at face value, the French Nation saw it for what it is.....Bonaparte had tiny hands.

Bit of a double-edged sword, that one - the assistance was all about fucking with the Brits, nothing to do with support for democracy (given that France was an absolute monarchy at the time).

Pure gold - thank you for this, I had a good laugh.
