This is a sequel to my earlier post on Dear Belinda’s article <https://largeroomnolight.wordpress.com/2016/07/04/4-a-day-food-budget-challenge/>. I must confess that my earlier one had left a feeling inside me that I had not put things too well. Am trying to correct that herein.
We shall take All the former things as said.
Please, Let it NOT be thought that I am mocking People in the West, showing that We in India live much Cheaper. Not at All.
I have a Veritable Anger, a Burning Anger, against all those responsible for the situation in the West, and in So many places all around the world. My Anger is Such that first it Debilitated me, and then, once I got going on this, is giving me Strength to go on with it, and, let me Confess that I would be Ready to Tear their Hearts out, literally, if I could.
I read in ‘Equinoxo’s’ blog, <https://equinoxio21.wordpress.com/> 6,500 People are Homeless in San Francisco, and, as he says, the number is just growing.
My Anger is towards those who just put the rates Up!
Why is Land and Housing So Expensive in the West? Why is Everything So costly there?
It is Greed. Oh, Everybody is greedy. But is there No difference between wanting to eat another Ice Cream, and Gobbling up another man’s business, house, orchard or property?
As I have said, I am No economist. But I venture that all this is so because:
A: 1% calls the shots,
B: 9% Make it Possible, – after all the plans cannot be executed without Middle-men, touts, bureaucrats, complacent police and generals gone on sale.
C: 89% Couldn’t Care Less, or Won’t Take the Necessary Steps, even unto Raising their voices, for or against, – who will vote for the person who says: “To confront terrorism, you have to take out their families.” From:
See how happy they are! They have their Grass, and even Flowers, the Sky, Clouds and an Attendant! And Houses, Jobs, Motorcycles, Cars, and…
You would have noticed that the numbers add up to 99 there above. The rest of the 1% are the Mad Prophets like Us, and the Very Few who Shout along with Us.
Believe You me, Not just Jonah, Yesudas would Very much like to Keep his Big mouth Shut. But the Fire will not let Us do that.
Had occasion to see what started off as the ‘B-52’ graveyard. But a site I went into shows many more, other planes. It is Not the types of planes that I want to refer to here, but the Sheer numbers. Such Expensive aircraft, So many of them, Merrily Abandoned. No, No, No, I am Not saying they should be put to use, particularly as military weapons. You can have a look see here:
What I mean is, Building Planes, Discarding them, and Building New ones now, further. What Sort of Brainlessness is this? Again, putting it in other words, What I am objecting to is this Sheer Waste of Our Money, Yours and Mine. …Oh, the manufacturing companies have to keep doing that, or else their profit Ceases. But We, – since We of the Blogging world have our Houses, Jobs, Computers, Smartphones, and above all our Beers, – Will Not bother about such Wastes.
[ And here, by the way, while Billions are being Wasted, found Many comments about Mother Teresa having ‘wasted’ Millions. The subject crops up widely in the comments. ]
And People Struggle to Eat 3 Plain Meals a Day.
They are Greedy.
But their Greed gets Satisfied Because We are Silent.
