...as Depressed Single Mother is blogging again. Welcome back, Jules. One less mystery, or maybe one more. While musing on Jules and Hannah's Edinburgh, I could not help but think of the Scottish equivalent of Montezuma's revenge. This particular Scotsman's Wikipedia page has been protected against vandalism. Can you imagine there are those out there who call him a liar and a war criminal? Arrgh! No more politics. It puts me off my lunch. The whole world has now become an army of Bill Gates beggars now that Warren Buffett has made the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation worth more than Tescos or the GNP of Croatia. So if you are poor stand in line at Bill's soup kitchen. Maybe he has a crust for you. It's a cool scam. Make up some tacky product. Turn everyone into junkies so they have to buy it. Then give all the money away and get to be god. Buy your way into heaven.
"While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer:"
Smart cards for prostitutes is one of the projects sponsored by all this largesse. Prostitutes who fail to comply with health checks get their cards withdrawn. Social control through charity. Plus ça change, plus c'est la meme chose."
