Tag: <span>Society Anger</span>

Well my post yesterday (Society Anger) certainly stirred up the proverbial can of worms (or have I got my mixed metaphors muddled up?). I love hear other people’s opinions, such as those made in the comments yesterday, and as ever a few have changed my mind a little. I still believe that a small percentage of the country needs to be clamped down on (as do Scottish Labour if their election policies hold true), as I still believe that we need to have a system of help and support for those families who need it.

What I think we all agree on, no matter your preferred solution, is that this problem has gone on for too long. We are now at the third generation of ‘these’ families, and the longer this goes on, the harder it will be to tackle.

Thanks to all who commented, including the ‘anonymous’ Donalda Bint* who offered the flipside to my point of view, I doubt this is the last I will mention this topic.

* Despite the few hints left in the comments I’m still no nearer figuring out who this is.

Ever get that “why do I live here” kind of anger? I don’t mean Hamilton, or Scotland, I mean our society. Quite frankly it sucks.
Now I’ve admitted before that I am a snob (not a very good snob as I’m not rich enough for that… yet…) but I look at some of the people in our society, the ones that didn’t vote, that live of my (and your) taxes and contribute the sum of sweet f.a., and think

“Why do we put up with them?”

I look at the slums in other parts of the world and wonder how those people survive. Then I wonder what it would be like to swap the whole lot of them. Maybe that would stop these moaning, whinging slackers grabbing everything they can, and stop the government baby-sitting them. Don’t get me wrong, I realise there are people out there who have fallen on bad times and need a helping hand, I’ll gladly support them, but not these chain-smoking, tracksuit wearing 15 year parents who wander along the road yelling obscenities at their children.

As someone, in a film I think, once said: “We all have a choice”.

Remember it’s only a cliche because it’s true.

More…

* Not quite sure why I’m so worked up about this, but it’s my site so I’ll bloody well vent when I want….
