I have a plan.
Before the next election I'm going to set up a political party. I don't know what my party would be about, probably nothing, but provided I get one or two votes I'd be assured of becoming the next prime minister of Australia!
I can picture it now.
Think I'm crazy?
Well, apparently not. It seems minority groups run this country nowadays.
Last week I read an article in our local newspaper about how schools are no longer doing nativity plays because it MAY offend one or two people who don't want to celebrate Christ's birth. Therefore, in the interests of the one or two people who MAY be offended the public schools have scratched nativity plays.
Of course the minority could have withdrawn their children from this extra-curricular activity, which no one would have objected to, but unfortunately everyone now gets to go without.
So, if the majority have to do what the minority want then I'm strongly thinking about setting up a small political party to run this country! Of course we'd have to cap the number of members at a minority number whatever that figure is (although I suppose you couldn't have any more than 49.9%).
Not only is this strange thing happening in schools, but I've heard some stores (such as GAP) also no longer use the term "Christmas" anywhere in the store... it's just replaced with Holidays. So instead of Happy Christmas we get Happy Holidays. And again this action is done because it's in the best interests of the minority's feelings - we don't want to offend that small minority group who should've known better about coming to Australia because that's just what we do.
In fact I'm tempted to go into a GAP store and ask several questions...
1. What are the holidays we are celebrating about? (Every other public holiday we have is for a reason, so what is this one?)
2. What is the current year? (2006 represents the year since Christ's birth. So if you're not willing to recognise Christ in any way shape or form, especially his birth, then what year is it?)
The Process. Your Mileage May Vary.
