DUSTY DUSTY DUSTY!!  WHEW  WHO GAVE THE MAID THE DAY OFF??

OK,, let me clean up here a little, ok? In the meantime, have a look around,,

The Muslim Brotherhood in the person of Mohamed Morsi has won the first presidential election in Egypts history. While I am delighted the military didn’t win, I have to admit that I’m unsure what this will mean in the long run for the people of Egypt who fought for their freedom. The military will never just pack up and leave, I’ve never known a military that was willing to do that, once in power they want to stay. So far, Morsi seems to be saying the right things about the revolution and revolutionaries and honoring those who lost their lives in the struggle, but I am wary, I must admit. I truly hope that my wariness isn’t based upon religious bias. I hope that I have evolved past that and I think I have. My biggest concern is one that I have spoken of earlier in this blog as well as on twitter,, that you cannnot have a successful revolution nor can a society truly be free while part of it’s citizens are still oppressed, and by that I mean women primarily, and of course lgbt as well. The simple truth, dear reader is that no givernment can succeed without women in high ranking decision making postions.

There is more on my mind and hopefully I’ll be back more often, please don’t give up on me quite yet!!

love and peace to all

I am in a bit of a quandary, staring into the abyss known as the dreaded WB, writers block, but very much stunned by the fact that its been eleven days since i did anything on here, That seems so unfair, and at the same time, what has kept me away, dear reader, LIFE is actually swimming along rather well, albeit busy. In the meantime, what is laughingly known as my mind has all the while been stirring like the proverbial pot aboil quite well on its own and i can somehow feel that it’s going to erupt with the usual verbosity in no time. I had thought of writing my 100th post as something special, and had even asked my twitter friends for suggestions as to topic, (I did get one response out of about 300 followers), I had then realized that a couple of days ago was “Human Trafficking Awareness Day”. That is a topic I feel strongly about, and while I didn’t get time to write anything intelligent about it, i promised myself I will soon.

So then the bloody question is, what do i want to say? Fuck i wish I knew! Any suggestions? LOL

There are so many things that I can write about, of course, the path of elections in Egypt, the apparent majority win in parliament by the Muslim Brotherhood while not totally unexpected has me a little concerned, I had and still do have high hopes for peace in the Middle East, both between the Arab Nations themselves and with Israel, but I don’t believe it has a chance without democracy, and if the Muslim Brotherhood doesn’t deliver the type of freedom that the people of Egypt fought and died for then it will set the cause of peace back a great deal. I believe that the governments of Tunisia and Egypt need to be the sterling examples of what the revolution has been all about. They need to stand for the dreams of freedom which the people of Bahrain, Yemen and Syria are still fighting for while being held in the grips of butchers.

My own government has yet again shown its enormous capability to embarrass its self and us who have eyes opened. The video of American soldiers urinating on dead Afghans is dreadful!! When o when will my homeland ever wake up? Plus to top it off, they are sending more troops and “advisors” into Israel, and it would seem allowing Israel to not only determine governmental policy towards Iran but quite possibly to be pushed into a war with them. I am, in no way shape nor form a fan of the Iranian government.  I have to admit that I do fear what a government like theirs could do with nuclear weapons, but to allow one country to push a superpower into a war is just wrong, and of course it will echo to every Arab nation as well. Americas seemingly blind support of the government of Israel, one which I frankly consider to be quite fascist, is perhaps the biggest roadblock to peace in the middle east, and the behaviour of its troops, urinating on corpses is simply proving everyone who hates the  US correct to do so.

Ok,, end of rant,

I’ll try to think of something positive to write about soon!
