19 Signs That You Live In A Country That Has Gone Completely Insane

TheSurvivalPlaceBlog

By Michael Snyder – End Of The American Dream

Do you ever feel like you are living in a “Bizarro World”?  That is how I feel much of the time.  I look around and it seems as though some form of mass psychosis has descended on most of the population.  Things that would have had Americans angrily marching in the streets a generation or two ago are now just accepted as “normal” by the “sheeple” that populate this nation.  If the talking heads that endlessly spew nonsense at us through our televisions tell us to believe something, no matter how absurd it is, most people just go along with it.  Before we had televisions and radios and computers and movies and the Internet, people actually had to do the hard work of thinking for themselves.  But now we are all plugged into this giant “matrix” that tells us what to…

I’d rather not be so popular. It couldn’t be my chicken and pancetta pie, could it?

One Man's Meat

Chicken and pancetta pie (16 of 18) My blog has got incredibly popular of late. This is a good thing, right? Sadly, no. Very wrong. It’s not my regular visitors and friends at all points in the free and not so free world that have me exercised. It’s those hard-hearted, vexatious, spotty people who spend their time spamming my virtual home here on WordPress. I checked today and have 475 spam comments in the darned efficient spam catcher used by WP. That means that of the time I spend here on the Internet, more of it is spent clearing out the dross and less is spent on the stuff you are here to see.

Black Space

We are Black professors.

We are daughters, sons, brothers, sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews, godchildren, grandfathers, grandmothers, fathers, and mothers.

We’re writing to tell you we see you and hear you.

We know the stories of dolls hanging by nooses, nigger written on dry erase boards and walls, stories of nigger said casually at parties by White students too drunk to know their own names but who know their place well enough to know nothing will happen if they call you out your name, stories of nigger said stone sober, stories of them calling you nigger using every other word except what they really mean to call you, stories of you having to explain your experience in classrooms—your language, your dress, your hair, your music, your skin—yourself, of you having to fight for all…

National Sanitation Day Fiasco

So it happens that the government has instituted a National Sanitation Day programme to conscientize the citizens of Ghana on how to keep their environment clean.

Now I do agree that we need a National Sanitation Day,but not day for cleaning the environment,instead a day for sanitizing the minds of the citizens in this country.

This programme is a complete waste of time and resources;to me it’s like bathing and dressing up a pig and placing it in your living room.The day it comes out,it will go back to the mud.Take a visit one week after those cleanup exercises are carried out and you are sure to find a new heap of garbage waiting to graduate into a horrible stench.

Do you an example of a National Sanitation Day in UK,United States or Singapore?We then should we presume to implement such a horrible idea.One day of cleanliness in month would not take care of 30 days spent in creating filth.

What Ghanaians need is sanitation of their minds.

What we need are laws and a new enforcement body (not the Police) with prosecution powers to handle this issues.
Polythene bags and plastics should be banned completely in favor of biodegradable packages.
We need an efficient settlement planning council to preside over construction of buildings and the location of drains.
A whole unit or perhaps a new ministry should be set-up to handle the sanitation canker in Ghana,not some flukish charade called “National Sanitation Day”.
