This Is Probably Not Gonna Be A Popular Post…

Ah… now it all becomes clear… The chief executive of Hong Kong says that it’s “… unacceptable to allow his successors to be chosen in open elections, in part because doing so would risk giving poorer residents a dominant voice in politics.” What a disaster that would be – to allow the poor to gain control, simply because they happen to outnumber the rich. Why, they might actually try to do something about poverty… Horrors…

Why?

I don’t much feel like making any snarky remarks, or snide asides or amusing quips. About much of anything. Not today. There doesn’t seem to be any room for humor. Not when people I know are going through hell. Not when people – actual living, breathing, hungry, sweating flesh and blood people – are being gassed and sprayed by their own fellow citizens. The people of Hong Kong are in the midst of a crisis.
