I am reluctant. Lately I feel a great appreciation for the couch. Not that I’m depressed or anything, just that I have no desire to believe in certain things
YI always have breakfast with newspaper, now I continue the adventures of Kur Wallander far beyond the Scania. Radio tires me, years ago I left aside the talk radio and TV debates. Too much screaming and stupidity, especially the latter.
I’ve never understood how someone with a modicum of dignity may be able to say think about everything. Making money, of course. Whether the issue is taxi fares in Barcelona, or the redevelopment of the Canal de Isabel II, which I do not know if there is no extension works, or if the channel l still exists or if just the name of a company. In my humble opinion, that ignorance incapable me talk about it. However that same ignorance is not the pundits or commentators for, especially if the commentator is a journalist. And if the journalist is also political, and then …. then we have a problem
Despite what I said at first, since Saturday, for obvious reasons, I have been tracking fairly comprehensive list of economic news, for what I have been advised by some members of my family at least, which is not enough, they understand the economic vocabulary (I have several economists in the family) and I clear my doubts.
That’s how I’ve managed to understand, as far as it goes, and as far as I can, what is happening in this country. And what is happening is not one thing but many all at once. But one of the worst, is that everyone gets trick, verbally speaking, and most have no idea. And that includes everyone from ministers to Paco the mild dealer, when about 9 am gets in the Miranda for coffee and to fix the world. More or less like me: None of them is negligible because although it may seem the Paco’s audience is reduced , in fact no one has quantified it.
Read: The Andalusians are lazy, cocky people of Madrid, the Catalans are stingy.Also, politicians are corrupt bankers are rascals and by extension the banks are shit.Understanding shit like CAM, Bankia and other examples, which unfortunately are many.
Everyone knows that generalizations are odious and also false. Not all Catalans arestingy or all Andalusians are lazy.
. What of the politicians I see it as more complicated. And the banks … Well, to say that all banks are shit is a lie.
Not all Spanish banks are bankrupt, because not all Spanish banks have been in the hands of madmen, ambitious, victims of their greed, their stupidity slaves. Some bankswere able to put the brakes on that reckless with which not so long ago assailed usfrom all media.
