That's very good paul.
Of course some of the politicians are contortionists as well as escape
artists, see them wriggle out of a commitment.

Yes, I've seen them do that. I don't have any enthusiasm for politics. I don't even watch the presidential candidates debate each other. What do debates prove anyway?

I've got to be honestand admit that I don't get fired up about politics
any more. I used to be quite commited to certain things and give of my time
and in some cases, my money.
I've reached a place where I realise I've seen it all before and it's
a case of same-old, same-old.

Actually, we are living in times that force politicians to sacrifice. The picture is never pretty. It isn't just politicians who are sacrificing, judging by the protest groups that are becoming more and more visible.

So, I don't think this is the same old anything. There was always enough to go around, but now there isn't -- unless you want to split hairs and argue that the top 5% own most of the wealth in society. Don't hold your breath waiting for them to see that they need to spread it around. The few that do give away a lot of wealth attach large strings to the giveaways. I believe that both Warren Buffett and Bill/Melinda Gates want their donations to result in a less overpopulated world. At some point in the future (perhaps a distant one), the lower population of workers will give job-seekers a better shot at employment, but what do we do about the huge group of unemployed right now?

I wonder what Red Dog is doing now?
