March 2022–As the World Unfolds Before Us
We do live in interesting times, indeed.
March 2022—As we see the world unfold before us all,one could not help but to observe and to contemplate the ff:
The ongoing Russia-Ukraine crisis– as this ongoing heart-wrenching human interest story continue to unfold wth no end in sight yet, the effects coming from this in terms of ongoing inflation, oil-gas prices soaring, loss of lives from this ongoing civil war,remedies are still being considered constantly.
What would it be? Price control? Depending on local oil resources and not be too dependent on Russia? Human rights tribunal putting an end to this ongoing war crime of humanity? Depending on electric cars instead of those run by diesel or premium? (Paging Elon Musk of Tesla for a discount! Wait! He is trying to challenge Vladimir Putin to a duel and the price is Ukraine. Good luck on that, Sir!)
And of course, the ongoing changes in restrictions regarding COVID-19. The light at the end of the tunnel is coming. Hang on tight,folks!
As the Miss Congeniality movie states, “We just want world peace.” We really do it need it now!
St . Patrick’s Day is coming up (March 17). We need a drink to toast for change in this ever turbulent world of ours.
Prayer helps too! Amen to that !
Re: “oil-gas prices soaring” …
Maybe higher fuel prices will result in less gratuitous fuel waste by individual consumers. For one thing, I’ve frequently walked past parked vehicles idling for many minutes, even in very warm weather.
Sometimes I’ll also see the exhaust spewed by a vanity vehicle, a metallic beast with the signature superfluously very large body and wheels that don’t at all appear used for work or family transport. They’re the same gratuitously huge monsters that when parked roadside hazardously block the view of short-car operators turning or crossing through stop-signed intersections; and they look as though they might get about 25 gallons to the mile.
Inside each is the operator, typically staring down into their lap, probably their smartphones. I couldn’t help wondering whether they’re some of the people posting complaints onto various social media platforms about a possible gas tax/price increase, however comparatively small. Here in Canada, the carbon tax, though it’s more than recouped via government rebate (except for the high-incomed), induces much pastime whining.
Throughout my life, I’ve found that a large number of male owners of gas-powered vehicles consider their cars to be an extension of their phallic egos, and it terrifies them to even contemplate a world in which they cannot readily fuel those phallic extensions. And comparatively quiet electric cars are no substitute. I believe this to be true; it’s not meant solely to offend. …
Meanwhile, mass addiction to fossil fuel products undoubtedly helps keep the average consumer quiet about the planet’s greatest polluter, lest they feel and/or be publicly deemed hypocritical.
Point taken. Thanks for your feedback.
