I suppose some will see this as a dark, threatening sort of blog. A tale of woe and destruction dreamt up by some black hearted lord of the afterlife-but no, it's just me and my thoughts 'a wanderin'. Well Lee Marvin did, so why can't I?
You see something ludicrous struck me today as I battled weakly against the new plague and pestilence known to us as "Swine Flu".
I lay thinking of all the hatred caused by the anti smokers, you know them, people like Bhanzaff, Glantz, Cruella DeVille etc. They don't want smokers to have any fun at all. They don't want smokers to be on the same planet and it is these type of narrow minded assholes that want the world to be as perfect as they think it should be-fat chance.
After only days of smoke ban law the Turkish cafe bar owners are up in arms at the immediate cost to their businesses with reports already that up to 1/3rd may well close down as smoking customers do what smoking customers do worldwide-desert the bars, stop spending money etc It seems that the WHO, ASH and all these other anti smoking parasitic charities couldn't give a baboons ass about poverty, homelessness or business failures so long as their mantra is acted out.
I have no doubt thought, that 'their time' is fast coming to an end. Economically their whole strategy is flawed as it will be they who will scream loudest at an £30p on income tax when that 'leaf of evil' is eradicated from the planet and governments worldwide still want the coffers to be filled. Economically 'their time' is ending because the world is now in a giant recession, money is not being circulated so freely by the people, the workers, the base line of humanity-well, except to the tobacco smugglers of course!
In 2012 a new horror will emerge in this country-it's called the Olympic Games. To my mind that means lots of different people from lots of different countries-yes I know we got that already but this is different, this a statement from world sport!
And? who is most primed to take full advantage of all this hype, all this carnival atmosphere and most of all, so many different cultures crammed into one place? Got it yet?
Osama Bin Laden, that's who!
Well the yanks haven't found him yet have they? They might have crusaded against the poor smokers all over the planet but they haven't caught up with the 'binman' just yet. The conclusion coming isn't too difficult to arrive at!
As my mind wandered even further I could imagine the hater of the western world thoughtfully tugging at his beard as he deliberated which particular target would be first to taste his venom. Just how big a mark would he want to make on the biggest sporting event for four years? Just how much pandemonium could he cause if he tried?
Fuelled by 'tamiflu' and a cocktail of other prescribed curers of ills I suddenly thought about smokers. We'd all be mysteriously protected as we were all victims of the "Western World", we were the lepers, the social outcasts-the saved.
It all seemed so perfectly obvious to me, hazy but obvious. This man hates the ideals of the western world and it is the western world (or lunatic parts of it) that have forbidden the smoking of Hookah pipes - a tradition steeped in ancient eastern history. A pipe of relaxation, a pipe for debating with, a pipe for making decisions with, a pipe of some power!
So, if my drugged up head and feverish torso has equated all things correctly and the imbecilic ban is not amended by 2012 there could be some fireworks of the not planned variety in a very large city.
The armchair will be my viewing spot for the 2012 games thank you, but please feel free to afford ASH, CRUK and all those other uncharitable charity folk the luxury of the 'hot seats' with the best views!
