With the launch of the ESA (Employment and Support Allowance) to replace Incapacity Benefits and Income Support, lots and lots of people are going to find jobs and be ever so happy - honest! OH bloody hell fire - just how stupid do these idiots in government think we are?
It's back to slinging people with disabilities into whatever jobs are available no matter how crappy and we'll be helped by special advisors to guide us into work they wouldn't give to their worst enemies.
Anyway, while we're being covertly accused of scrounging off the state. What about the biggest spongers of the lot that recently received a bung of 50 billion GBP? Our banks have to apply for government assistance to survive, so what? We've had to do that for years, not out of choice might I add.
I had wondered how long it would be before Gordon Brown started in on us. He'd better watch his ass, because if this latest bunch of horse-pats goes the way I'm expecting it to, he might just have to bend over and take it.
Is it my imagination or does each government (US or UK)announcement that everything's going to be fine, cause the markets to get nervous and lose even more percent points? (Today for example, ESA and a brave new dawn ya de ya and so on and the Footsie 100 dropped below 4000 points). Weird innit?
Or maybe not so strange, let's face it, the stock markets are being ruled by fear right now (hmm - new angle for my story?) and a politician looking confident is enough to scare any bugger!
That's it for the minute, I shall pack away my soap-box to be reused at some later date (recycling and being generally environmentally friendly y'see).
Take care

In five hundred years time, most of us will be forgotten dust. But Hitler will still be remembered, God loves irony.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for coming to my Write-Off that Terence challenged me in and thanks for getting it....because you understood perfectly what I meant, I think the rules don't allow me to comment to people until the Write-Off is over on my own post, but here I am on your post, so Thanks! You GOT IT perfectly, Paul.

Now, I understand why you assumed that my title ASSUME THE POSITION was about the position we have all been put in economically around the world, here in the US and Britain and elsewhere, yes, we are all being fucked in the ass by a bunch of lying hypocrites that say one thing and do another...exploiting us all the way up our you know whats and taking advantage of our loyalty and belief in them, as in governements and such "them". They, them do think us stupid. We are sheep, led to the slaughter, been a slow patient process, for I have watched it go down now for the past 30 or so plus years...I know what you speak of here, whether Britain or the US or the exploitation of the world, and the assholes have the nerve like they do here in the US to blame the poor for their own plight...pull yourself up by your own boot straps they say, and the big question is, like something out of the horrors and new industrial age of Charles Dicken's stories; "but, Sir, I don't have any boots, much less straps to pull myself up by" Yeah, here they blame the victims the poor, as the abusers and welfare fraud, when in massive numbers the real rip off is in the BILLIONS by a handful of a few at the top of the exploitative capitalistic free enterprise RIP OFF ALL SOCIAL PROGRAMS pyramid.

Good writing, Ogg, good thinking, but then again, that is what I have always come to expect of you and you have never disappointed.

Namaste, you are a good and smart soul. Blessings to you and yours! Good health to you too. Thanks for sticking here at the Lit.Org, big new improvements in the works, I am excited keep looking in and checking back and writing, you are loved here and you intelligent writings and works are part of the life blood of the Lit.Org, she needs you. She is a vampire, she lives off of the creativity of the writers here, without them, you, us, all, new and old, she would surely the old girl is getting a new blood transfusion.
Your particular blood type is one she cannot LIVE without in her cocktail of creative please come back to her, to us, and let us feed from your works, like the Lit.Org a will keep you alive for ever, don't they say that about writers?

Immortality in writing, yes, and in creative arts, true immortality in this physical world.

A virtual vampire? Oh well, thanks for dropping in to comment Lena. Btw I tried emailing Rick about taking part in a write off, but it failed to deliver. Should've put it on a post card I suppose, any ideas please?

Take care

Ogg--Shannon in Zen silence for the competition to begin...
Shannon (up to competing too) has Pm'd Rogan and RCallaci too, I think, and by the way that old rick email no longer applies, Shannon is waiting for you in this next competition. Rogan is running the show on the Write Offs (I think) but RCallaci is the head guy so he can lead you to do what you need to. I gave Shannon the same advice. This will be fun, can hardly wait to read both of you!

Good luck!
