darn those cheap skate americans … they aren’t giving enough says an american. euros love it

European I think just love it when an American confesses and admits what failures we are and how but for us poverty would be ended, gorebal warming would cool, there’s be no wars and the common cold might be a thing of the past.

Yeah,yeah I’m exasperated/exaggerated.  Hey say ....is there a combination of those two words? Anyway, saw the headline in morning paper and so booted to post earlier then usual.  We had some washing to do and the weather forecast said the next couple of days would be sunny and even into the 70s.  Mind you, 70 does not always translate into mild or warm.  So we went to the creek and brought back everything to hang on our line and the sun immediately went in.

Right. A maddening headline in the paper as follows.

APATHY IN US HINDERS CAMPAIGN ON POVERTY

Right.  It’s our fault again.  Jeesh. Tell ya what.  I just discovered that the reason the problem is always in front of us is, new generations get fed the pap and sob story and it just goes on.  Nothin’ new here.  Where’s the money been going all these years?  Maybe between em Vilmar and Drew took it and lost it all in Vegas.
Do any of you folks recall the collections made in schools when we were all young? 
I’m afraid Americans are just gonna have to do more .....  !%$£%^&*(*(&^%%$£$&^*(!!^


American lack of interest in achieving the Millennium Development Goals
amounts to a failure of leadership that dooms efforts to revitalise the campaign to failure, one of its leading architects has said.

By Mike Pflanz in Nairobi

Prof Jeffrey Sachs, a New York-based economist, told The Daily Telegraph, that the world would fail to meet the eight targets to reduce deprivation adopted in 2000 because the US had effectively turned away from the process.

World leaders gathered on Monday in New York to discuss progress towards the goals, which aimed at halving poverty, ensuring every child completes primary school, tackling killer diseases including Aids and addressing the impacts of environment change.

“In the US, it’s not as if people are debating whether we are going to meet the promises or not, there is simply no debate happening at all,” said Prof Sachs in an interview. “If the Obama administration began committing what it promised it would, right now, all the MDGs could be met in Africa by 2015.”

Developed nations have already delivered less than half the £32 billion of increased aid promised at the 2005 Gleneagles G8 summit. By contrast Britain was one of the few nations showing sustained commitment to meet its promises on the MDGs.

While Britain is on target to meet a pledge to give 0.7 per cent of national income in aid by 2013, the US has fallen behind, giving just 0.2 per cent in 2009.

Just so nobody mistakes me for a compassionate and caring conservative.  Screw Africa! Screw the entire 3rd world.  I for one do not care.  Let em eat cake.
Zillions and zillions over the last 60 or so years and nothing changes except the bloated egos of rock stars who do aid concerts, and the pockets of the fixers.
The west throws money at peoples who feed rats milk.  Can not make that one up. It’s true in one place. Heaven knows what other examples are out there.
Britain pledges what?  While at the very same time making cuts here at home.  Oh that makes sense. Freekin ijits.

I want an air conditioned cave somewhere that also has broadband, maybe Utah. Or Montana. Someplace nice and remote and TV with only one channel that broadcasts Dodger games.  Bad enough when foreigners bitch about us and who likes that.  But when an American jumps on the bandwagon ... Nuts!

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
