Greed; Nepotism and laissez faire...A Satire;

Happily they meet and smile; nothing happened to them. Congratulate each other, how well the sandman trick works.
The taxpayers money which could have been used to build schools, hospitals, public transport, repair roads and would also have provided many with work, was used to bail out the big shots. Rubbing their well manicured hands, adjusting their silk ties, looking suave in their SavilleRow suits and handmade shoes. They can expect a huge bonus pay out for their negligence.
The lili faced executives shake hands we have got away with it again.
Politicans smile like it were their children who have got away with a little

The Group of Eight (G8, and formerly the G6 or Group of Six) is a forum, created by France in 1975, for governments of eight nations of the northern hemisphere: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States; in addition, the European Union is represented within the G8, but cannot host or chair.[1] "G8" can refer to the member states or to the annual summit meeting of the G8 heads of government. The former term, G6, is now frequently applied to the six most populous countries within the European Union (see G6 (EU)). G8 ministers also meet throughout the year, such as the G7/8 finance ministers (who meet four times a year), G8 foreign ministers, or G8 environment ministers.
Each calendar year, the responsibility of hosting the G8 rotates through the member states in the following order: France, United States, United Kingdom, Russia, Germany, Japan, Italy, and Canada. The holder of the presidency sets the agenda, hosts the summit for that year, and determines which ministerial meetings will take place. Lately, both France and the United Kingdom have expressed a desire to expand the group to include five developing countries, referred to as the Outreach Five (O5) or the Plus Five: Brazil, China, India, Mexico, and South Africa. These countries have participated as guests in previous meetings, which are sometimes called G8+5. Recently, France, Germany, and Italy are lobbying to include Egypt to the O5 and expand the G8 to G14.[2]

The more the merrier!

Politicians are thoroughly trained in "Sandmanship" to sprinkle enough sand into the citizens eyes to put them to sleep.


  1. I have learned to try to have a positive impact on my very close environment only. To help when I can trace up my contribution to concrete things. I donate to small associations to make sure a minimum of the money I give goes to pay for salaries and useless expenses.
    As for politics and politicians, both seem necessary but ...

  2. Titania, you nailed it! We watch, incredulous, at the huge bailout that goes into their pockets. Not only did they get away with something that was unethical, but we give them money so they can try it again. Sure makes you feel helpless and hopeless. Don't get me started!

  3. I see you have very little time for politicians. Sorry to hear Billy was sick but glad you saved him.
