I have decided that politics and economics are about as useful to the common man and woman as card tricks. They are kind of fun to watch but you know you are being conned.
When was the last time you actually believed all that you were told from the hill? When was the last time you were moved and impressed by a leader?
From now on I will look only to the beauty mavens of Hollywood. These peeps can look splendid say nothing and still command the universe. . .they are ideal politicos. I am suggesting then that our next leader looks like George Michael and sounds like James Earl Jones or is a Catherine Zeta Jones that sounds like Susan George or a husky Demi Moore. What they do in parliament is of little consequence. Elections will be held as soon as the Glitterati of parliament start to look too statesman like (old).
It’s in our best interest to vote for a teenager because, in theory, the next election wont be for another 20 years or so; that though is a little on the scary side. As for economics I am going to rely totally on Box Office tallies. If people are spending money to go to the movies then things must be ok’ish. If I need a verbal confirmation of ok’ish’ness then I will just sing that purple dinosaur song. I am sure to feel better after a chorus or two in that arena.
When all is said and done the politicians and economists can lead their duplicitous lives and we can lead ours happy and secure in the knowledge that when ever we have to look at them they will, at least, be appealing and pretty. I am such a genius! I hug me!
