I often use the old saying when asked a question that has an absolute “yes” as an answer - ‘Is the Pope a catholic?’
I’m considering strongly these days that perhaps he’s not…..

I am flattered that I have acquired a small number of followers who are prepared to read my ramblings on many and varied aspects of life.
I don’t post often unless I spot something that really ‘grinds my gears’ (to quote Peter Griffin from Family Guy), or when I feel I need to weigh in or contribute to a debate such as an election or major issue of humanity.
I am a mixed bag of thoughts and emotions.
I am a father of three young adult women, who are either students or teachers.
I have been married almost twenty years.
I have a questionable moral background from many years ago and have slowly matured my emotions and feelings.
I have voted left almost all my life as I despised ‘big business’ (and still do), however;
I am a swinging voter these days meaning I vote based not on belief but on practical decision making, (I cannot tolerate incompetence at the highest level of any organisation). I look for smart, capable people who cut through bullshit and focus on cause, effect and solution.
I have an article to post shortly. It may polarise my readers and hopefully attract a few more. My followers are quite a blend from passive moderates to extreme right-wingers, the odd national-socialist with some green stuff thrown in along the way.
But I will tell you one thing I am more concerned about than anything else.
It is what this world will look like in fifty or a hundred years for our future generations.
(Now don’t you environmentalists and Greenies start jumping for glee on my words - my position does not allow compassion for supporters of non-scientific pragmatism. Bloody pot-smoking, tree-hugging frog-lovers.)
I appreciate every one of you. Good outcomes come from a diverse range of inputs. But like a good brainstorming session, after everyone has their two-bob’s worth, you write-off the crap and work with the strong, potential ideas.
Write to me!
Suggest a topic.
Ask my opinion.
Give me your view on issues that effect the well being of our society.
But let’s all look at the big picture, OK?
