DAFT LAND

DAFT LAND
This struck a chord with me. See my sig. So I thought I'd share.

DAFT LAND

We live in a country called Daft Land
The Britain we knew is no more
Where sensible people do ludicrous things
Or risk breaking some Daft Land law.

In Daft Land we've police dogs with muzzles
Lest the villain has cause to complain
And to steal from a shop and say 'sorry'
Means your free with no stain to your name.

You had better leave lights on in buildings
When you lock up and go home at night
'Cause the burglars might hurt themselves entering
And there's no way you'll be in the right.

When speaking be wary in Daft Land
As some terms that you've used all your life
Now have connotations unintended
And you'll end up in all sorts of strife.

We elect polititions in Daft Land
To give us the laws of the land
Yet eight laws in ten now come from abroad
The whole thing has got out of hand.

The borders are open in Daft Land
And of migrants there's no keeping track
Just a few of the thousands illegally here
Will ever be caught and sent back.

The exception to this is the Gurkha hero
Who fought for this land in the war
He's old and he's sick, he might cost us a bit
So he's not welcome here anymore.

When the history is written of Daft Land
Historians may just recall
That the craziest people in Daft Land
Were the public who put up with it all.

By Pony Moore,
Taunton,

Sheeple, that constantly defer to a higher authority, without ever questioning whether the higher authority is abusing their trust.
The reality is the higher authority relies on the sheeple being too lazy, and they are right the sheeple are mostly, most of the time..
Those that are not and who do check and raise their concerns are simply dismissed as conspiracy nutjobs, lunatics, etc, etc, etc.

I do not mind the sheeple getting their just deserts (ie, taxed to death...), they have earned it by their laziness and complacency, but I will and do suffer too.
We will all suffer from our being too damned lazy to protect our own liberty, rights and democracy.
THAT is what so few seem to realise, it is all our own fault for putting up with it.

Thank you for posting Richard111.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
(and hence clamorous to be led to safety)
by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

H. L. Mencken.

The hobgoblins have to be imaginary so that
"they" can offer their solutions, not THE solutions.

Freedom is not free it must be fought for to keep it.

It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

–William O. Douglas, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1952
