Left vs. Right: A Custom Failure

Race Card Left: Our language and customs are racist and sexist.

Race Free Right: Actually I’d say your language and customs are racist and sexist, where there is none it’s your custom to say there is. And as usual the racism and sexism only exists in your mind.

Race Card Left: No it’s not, you racist! Many expressions and surnames are racist and sexist.

Race Free Right: Please clarify.

Race Card Left:  Well for example, the term for when the electricity fails, it’s called a black out! That right there is probably a subliminal attempt by you to tell black people to get out or something and then there’s the term ‘in the red’ for being in debt!! Obviously that’s an attempt to say Native Americans are always in debt and somehow a problem for you conservatives. Then there are surnames like Goldman, an attempt to say only men can have gold and the numerous other names that end in ‘man’ in an attempt to keep women down!

Race Free Right: Well on the expressions front, what about white out for a snow storm? Looking at it from your perspective it’s telling whites to get out. For finances they refer to being profitable as being ‘in the black’. Sounds like they are telling black people they can run a profitable business. And for surnames there’s Bride, Allison and Jane amongst others, never met a man with that genre of surname who feels it has kept him down, in fact it's never even been mentioned.

Race Card Left: You racist, that proves nothing!

Race Free Right: It proves everything. You’ll find in most cases race or gender weren’t even considered in the slightest whatsoever, it was more for whatever term was convenient at the time. And even if any have racial or gender connotations I dare say you’re find most people don’t consider such things when they speak the names or use the expressions. Sure some things need tweaking but pretty much all the problems are in your mind.

Race Card Left:  You racist.

Race Free Right: In other words once again I’m right, you’re wrong and you know you’re wrong! Any real comeback to that obvious fact?

Who The Real Fools Are.

Sometimes I think an official statement or constitutional preamble for Australia should read:

"We, the people of Australia will sit back while we are scammed, ripped off and oppressed by our governments. While this is happening we will console ourselves and justify our lack of action to protect ourselves by using the excuse that we are still better off than other countries even though if we sit back and do nothing we soon won’t be.

We shall call our politicians fools and idiots as they rip us off and get richer at our expense. We will then vote for them again despite saying they are fools and despite the fact there are other options out there.

The people who make an effort to stand up for our rights shall be laughed at or ignored, either way we’ll leave it all to them and hope for the best.

We will stay uninvolved in the political process but still complain when things get worse for us. We will allow ourselves to be dumbed down about everything especially the electoral process and say it’s down to the very politicians we call fools to tell us how it all works.

If we protest it will be in too little too late fashion and we will have blatantly ignored the events that caused the issues we are protesting about such as reckless borrowing and spending. Also our protests will be done using methods that are easily ignored or actually alienate people.  We do this because we prefer to waste our efforts and feel good about ourselves pretending we have somehow achieved something even though we are not really getting involved in the political process.

As previously noted we most certainly will not use our votes in order to protest the actions of politicians because we believe the polling booth is actually a betting shop where you’re supposed to tick the box on the paper to pick who you think will win because otherwise you’re somehow wasting your vote.

We would rather live our lives paying someone else’s debt and being oppressed than taking any real action in the here and now to prevent it from happening to begin with. For some reason we believe that it is easier to lose our freedom than to make any sort of stand that would stop our governments from taking advantage of us."

Politicians openly rip us off, feather their own nests, use our money to give their mates high paying jobs, use our money to buy themselves high paying jobs and ensure they walk away from the debt they raise and all the other havoc they cause.

Politicians are fools? In no way are they fools. We are for so meekly putting up with being ripped off while making excuses for them and then letting them rip us off again and again.
