IF YOU HAD ONE WISH [what would it be]

Saturday, February 18, 2012

If i had one wish, it would not be wealth or happiness, it would be that all the wealthy nations in this Globe of ours would put away petty grievances and actually get off they,re arses stop squabelling about third world debt of which the third world can ill afford and actually feed the starving for as we all know full well we have enough food to feed these people and yet we choose not to, for all our morals in the western world we have none when it comes to the faces on our screens of the starving around the world.
I for one would rather my increase in say fuel taxes go to Africa,s starving than the exchequers sordid pockets.
Even when i see the appeals for theses starving children i cant help but think every single time the same thing, why are they appealing to ordinary people some of who can ill afford to give themselves but still do when governments will not solve the problem and would rather use the money on weapons of mass destruction which we all pray will never be used.
As the song says its a mad mad mad world!

    The UK Government gives away MILLIONS of pounds in aid every year, money that's been collected from us, the UK tax payers. Unfortunately, part of the problem in some of these African countries is that the aid is going to corrupt governments, like Robert Mugabe's regime. People like him have been lining their own pockets for decades, while his people starve to death. Until we can get rid of the likes of him, and stop the civil wars in these countries, the poor, innocent people that are caught up in the midst of it all, will continue to die.
    Now, if we could only eradicate the dictators and their corrupt regimes................

    If I won a huge Lottery, my wish would be to set up free breakfast and lunch for our inner-city kids, right here in my own city. My heart aches for the starving kids around the world, and I agree with you, Russ, the Governments from the top 10 or more Countries could end this problem. But they haven't even dealt with so many of our own children, homeless and going to school in rags and hungry. This is shameful... emoticon emoticon

    If I had one wish, and after reading your blog, I would wish the same as you Russ. That makes two wishes for the same thing. If we could get 2 times 2 times 2 times 2 billion more people wishing for the same thing we may get some results.

    Fat chance .... Fat pollies.
