Obama

I wasn't going to mention it. I mean really, it's got nothing to do with me. Not my country. Not my politics. I don't have to live with it (well not in a direct way). And of course I do have that 'don't talk about politics on the blog' rule that I break all the time. I guess I'm breaking it again.

So what do I think...like you care.....too bad, you're getting it anyway. I don't have a very high opinion of many politicians. I think it takes a special kind of bastard to be a politician. My mother thought I was a Communist (and loved me anyway Red a RED smiley seemed appropriate here). There's only one politician of ours that I like and I really like him. The rest? Not so much. I felt pretty much the same about the US candidates...they're politicians. What's to like? Obama had some interesting things to say, but they often do don't they....until they get in. I'm not so gullible any more.

However, the vote is counted and Obama won the day and I will say this. It gives me some hope for our planet. If this is history in the making...I'll take some more of that kind of history please. Just don't f*&k it up Obama.

I wonder if ASIO will pick up my blog because I said 'Communist'...and mentioned them. Maybe I should put in 'spy' as well....and MI5.

If you don't hear from me tomorrow you'll know we've been raided.

I should just like to make it clear that I am not a fellow-traveller. I hav never heard of this blog, and have never been here before. In fact I'm not here now.

Phew.

He's right, I've never heard of Dav or Bave or whatever it is he calls himself and I don't know anything about that cannabis he's growing in his greenhouse.

supposedly, we are going to have a whole new world. You know, it makes me ill, that one person can have such an effect on our country.. whether he is 'good' or 'bad' only time will tell.

I hate voting because I know that all the things the pollies say never ring true... sometimes I feel like a mushroom..(do you know that saying?) - did you ever get that red newspaper printed ??hee, hee

CND? Don't get me started on that Lee...they really will come and take me away. Bloody governments.

Hi Sherrin, don't be misled, as far as I'm aware Dave has no cannabis and I shouldn't have besmirched his reputation in that way. I'm sure he'd make you a nice cup of tea though.

Hi Robyn, I absolutely agree and it is terrifying that one person/country/government can have such an influence on the WHOLE WORLD (no offence to my American friends and relatives). Oh and yes, the 'Red Gazette' is doing fine...want to subscribe?
