Resolving stuff…

So, with the New Year coming up, I’ve been thinking about resolutions. Not for me – for others. Yes, I’m caring that way. I did join Amnesty International so that’s one thing I have been meaning to do for a long time. Maybe I’m naïve, but maybe I can help someone instead of just talking about it…who knows…but - to some of my suggested resolutions for others….

- Politicians resolve to forgo all pay rises, especially in this current economic climate and actually work for the good of the people – you know – believe in all that crap they espoused to win your vote.
-That male dominated societies resolve to understand the wealth that is in their women – that they are not goods to be sold or mutilated or beaten or killed for honour - but women are equal partners, albeit sans penis, who are strong, smart and articulate and can change the world if they can free themselves of the prison of the veils.
-That employers resolve to look at their workforce as people with family and debts before they make job cuts and send people to the wall
- That the greedy bastards who got us into this crap economic crisis resolve to not deal in any numbers higher than those they can count on their fingers and toes until they learn their lesson.
- That all religions resolve to agree to disagree on philosophy and stop killing each other in the name of whatever so the troops, from all countries, can go home.
- The terrorists resolve to become human beings
- That those who want so desperately to believe that rock star politicians have all the answers resolve to take a reality trip. No one has all the answers.
- That the Japanese that are ‘conducting research’ on whales resolve to stop their brand of ‘research’ and let the whales be at peace.
- That anyone who gets behind the wheel of a car resolves to be sober and patient and stop killing people on the road through selfishness.
- That Paris Hilton resolves to do something worthwhile with herself and her money.

….and I could go on and on but I won’t….you know what I mean.
