 We all feel the burn of anger, outrage and patriotism these days. 
The heat of frustration. 
The passion that sometimes leads us to hate what we love. ...our Nation... yet love it we do. 
We are Patriots. And we will always be so.  We just need to know that our country says ": Back at you. ":  We need our Governments to love our Nations as much as We, the People, do.

I just had a reply to a tweet I made earlier today and it said “ the democrats don’t care. “  When I read it, I thought it was in relation to a comment I had made about a fake video of a woman in Syria grieving over the loss of her child – deceased.

Yet the dead child was blinking and opening and closing its mouth – it was so obviously a staged propaganda piece and I felt it was immoral to use this sort of thing to promote a political agenda.  Women who had really lost a child would find it very, very upsetting.

It was only when I thought a little more deeply about it that I realised that those simple words “ The democrats don’t care “ struck me.

That new article about the rugged men made me think of the  brave and real men that saved our community  of Peregian , Peregian Springs and Marcus Beach  .   That marvelous effort was not done by whimps  and chaps who have no get up and go , that effort was done and is done by good honest caring men .    The Fire Fighters put out a yearly Calendar  which helps fund their courageous   endeavours .   Now there is a set of rugged men ,  men who we can all be proud of.

I saw a clip from a newspaper from 1975 which quoted from the Communist Rules for Revolution in 1919. It is in itself a frightening read because it exposes the truth about what is happening 100 years on… in almost every Western Country throughout the free world.

But one thing stood out to me: it referred to making young people superficial and less rugged.

And it got me thinking.

What is a Rugged Man?

While sitting in my car contemplating the vastness of the Universe, as I am oft to do, I noted a very simple, everyday occurrence. A pedestrian left a building and stood by a crosswalk. An approaching vehicle stopped and waved the pedestrian on. The pedestrian entered the crosswalk and proceeded, leisurely, across the road. The vehicle then proceeded on its way. A simple, everyday occurrence.

In 1929 a Brisbane based Engineer, Dr JJ Bradfield, came up with a plan. A plan that could change Australia forever. The Bradfield Scheme. The man who designed the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Underground Railway system and Brisbane's Storey Bridge came up with a plan to drought proof Australia forever. Yet it has never been implemented. Why?
I wrote this  a year ago - it needs highlighting today.

Today I learned that an old family friend passed a few days ago. His passing marks the end of a friendship lasting over 50 years.

He was 85 years old. To have him leave us is, in many respects, the coming to the end of an era that I will miss enormously. The heady days of normality and laughter; joy and down to earth values. So vale John and let me say your life was a life WORTH having been lived.

A life when hard work and a solid marriage and having children and a home were all that one aspired to.

A normal life.

Trump has been all over China since at least 2018 and gave a warning to them to pull their head in or risk consequences. Well, they didn’t pull their head in and they are about to face the consequences of their arrogance.

He offered every opportunity to save face. He gave them every chance to stop breathing fire on the world and let things cool down. Instead, China has upped the ante, increased its arrogance and challenged America to walk the walk and not just talk the talk.

President Trump has risen to that challenge and is not about to back down.

In the story about St George and the dragon, St George slew the dragon by finding its weak point – the soft under belly.

Trump has found China’s underbelly – trade. Money.

The image here is probably one of the most recognised in the world today.  It needs no words to explain it and no article written about it…. Yet, today, it took on a whole new meaning for me.

I saw it as an image that works two ways- both ways. You can be silent and turn a blind eye and apparently hear nothing if you are paid enough or frightened enough.

Let’s face it, there are plenty of people who have grown rich and powerful from having “ turned a blind eye. “

It can also mean, as it has traditionally been represented, as keeping a veil over unpleasant or hurtful things that could damage you or someone else.

What an amazing image, when you think about it. And one that has never been more relevant in today’s uncertain times.
