Tell me why does it have to be like this ?
Tell me why is there something I have missed ?
Tell me why cos I don’t understand.
When so many need somebody we don’t give a helping hand.
Tell me why ? why, why do we say we care
Tell me why, why, why do we stand and stare
just tell me why, why, why ?

WHY the biggest floods in Thailand were ALLOWED to happen?! that’s right – ALLOWED, if not PLANNED well in advance. It can no longer be covered up even by MSM that the ongoing disaster
was IS man made ! And capitalized on by greedy TNCs – same as earthquake in Haiti, droughts in Australia, fires in Russia, floods in Pakistan…

I am trying to follow the development in the “rice money“ saga in Thailand as well as in general the farmers plight. because rice is the main food in this country and may be even whole Asia, and it is one of the major Thai export commodities (in fact Thailand is still considered world’s largest exporter) and therefore naturally the biggest money making source.
naturally being a biggest “cookie jar“, it is very closely related to the economical, social and political situation in Thailand. as saying goes – “follow the money” ! 😉
although this is not about Thailand – this might help to graps the REALITY of the modern world, how actually politics work.
“It is not LAW – it is Policy … ”
big corporations are making money by controling politics in the countries, and most if not all the “elected” reps (as MPs) often have certain positions in big corporations. Continue reading
