Happy New Year 2015. Dear Readers and Subscribers, I wish you all a Happy New Year 2015 and in doing so I also wish you all a prosperous one. I am well aware that for some 2014 was a difficult year although I had hope it would be much better than 2013. We are continuing to be told that cutting the deficit is the most important issue today, but for me and I’m sure million of others, a roof over our head, food in our belly and clothes on our backs are the most important issue. Reason why I try to encourage as many that can afford it, to go and put a can or two of food stuff in the food banks shops. I have done so over the Christmas and will be doing so throughout the year, if only that it feed one child. It’s not being a socialist or any of the political phrases bantering amongst the politicians and strategists, it’s simply being human. And I hope a good many of you do the same. I don’t know about you, but I can’t imagine a billion or a trillion pounds, euros or dollar, or any other currency, but I could imagine what it looks like to see a starving child or a homeless person and that should be what matters to us all.
In my simplistic way of thinking, when you loose something, it is because something you had and now its gone. But to the banks and financial specialists, what they loose is ideas, peculation and chance taking. And then they put figures of billions, trillions to the valve of their lost. And although we neither hand a hand in loosing what it is they’ve lost and stood little chance of gaining from their success. We now are making the biggest sacrifice in paying them for their lost, and it has become the most important thing and what is shocking, is that their lives has not changed one iota. And the thing that mystify my thinking, they say we not only have to pay them all that they have lost for many years but with interest at rates they only have the power to set. And they call it globalization and blame it on the people who for the want of food, clothe, a home and a future for their children are moving around the globe, having be put in an impossible situation.
Still I hope I have not being to gloomy because I am looking to the new year with great expectation. So here is a Happy New Year to you all, and try if you can to help yourself and others that the world may be better each day.
