Ok let me explain, you see basically for the last 2 years its been nothing but COVID this and COVID that.
But now, restrictions have basically been lifted Australia wide well except for that island attached to us over west – yes Western Australia who lives in a bubble and Omicron is now alive and well over there.
Flights have returned, most of us have been Triple Jabbed and no masks unless you want to – yeah ha… But… now nothing is mentioned, the topic is quiet, why??
Covid news started to go quiet as the World watched Russia amass over 100,000 troops on the border with Ukraine saying no we will not invade we are conducting military exercises… we all knew that was bullshit especially Ukraine and that also took the focus off of China, Russias ally funny that!
Well it happened and Russia has invaded Ukraine and the Ukraines are resisting, the world has imposed sanctions on Russia but Russia is not stupid they won’t invade a NATO country as that would mean WWIII, but that doesn’t help the Ukraines as they are not a NATO Country.
Most of us can only stare on in disbelief knowing that we cannot do much from here – which is sad as it doesn’t help the Ukraine citizens who are innocent victims in this, even the Ukraine immigrants here can do very little but protest…
Even Russian citizens who can see through the propaganda are protesting with the risk of being arrested and then who knows.
Now if that wasn’t enough, then back here in Australia we’ve had torrential rain events with many areas underwater – heartbreaking because for many, this has already happened to them in the past and now they are being hit with it again.
The SES, Emergency Services, ADF and many ordinary Australians are again proving just how strong mateship and the Aussie Spirit is.
I mean you need something when faced with what they are facing including many of my friends up North.
You only have to look at Lismore, the whole CBD is underwater and when you look at McDonalds you can see how far the water has risen…
People are using Tinny’s with spreadsheets to guide them, as this way they can go from house to house, property to property and make sure people are ok.
People are being rescued from Rooftops and roof cavities as they are trapped – all you can do is thank the resilience of people and their courage and determination.
So while people are in Tinny’s, and the ADF are flying around; there are lowlifes, grubs the lowest of the low, using this as an opportunity to loot peoples homes – yes that’s right they are stealing from people that are going through enough hardship and pain without having to also endure this kind of thing…
I reckon if they are caught then throw away the book and lock em up after a bit of summary justice!!
Anyway I have rambled on for too long, hey if you see me out on the road say gday or hit me up on UHF Channel 40
Till next time, take care, yours in country music – Leigh
