Love Google's April Fool
I have spent much of the morning cleaning the kitchen. God it was awful. Despite being one very lazy person I have to admit there is nothing better than the satisfied feeling one has from a job well done. Seeing that kitchen looking Mum worthy for once was brilliant. In celebration of this I bring you the following video (warning advert ahead!) I've seen floating round the net this month... the Cleaning Hunk.
Since the left wing hysteria of my latter teenage years I've moved from Communist sympathiser to the libertarian I am today. I think my job brought me to this particular philosophy... dealing with members of the public day in and day out taught me one thing... I do not want to be forced to share my hard earned cash with some of these horrid people.
I'd always favoured taxing the rich, supporting public services and proactive military intervention in the cause of freedom. But each tenet has been proven wrong. The Government and public companies can barely be trusted to do a good job. Just read the Private Eye once in a while to see the jokes our taxes pay for. Amusing but not that amusing!!! How can I argue in favour of higher taxation if our elected representatives squander what we give them now? And how can I support any military campaign of aggression against anyone by such incompetent fools.
And again... I really don't want to be funding 1) a Government that attempts to deny me liberty and 2) people who I don't won't anything to do with (pretty much 60% of the population).
I have to say the following animation pretty much sums up my current stance...
