Something To Say-World

Something to Say-World blog is a forum where I can vent and share my strong viewpoints with the world, and get feedback from others, whether they are pro or con, for or against my positions. The main thing is that we engage in a thought provoking discussion with hopes of seeing the world in a more clearer and different light than we did before initiating our intellectual dialogues. __________ MOTTO:Committed To Relentless Pursuit Of Hidden Truths -Globally-

Saturday, August 27, 2005


Well folks, your national leaders, nor your pastor during the Sunday morning sermon will tell you the absolute truth. So I guess it's left up to an insightful and fearless blogger like me to put us all on the right track to salvation, as far as our pocketbooks are concerned. The simple truth lies in this one profound declarative sentence:It's time for all of us to cut back on our driving habits to take a proactive stand against over inflated gasoline prices. We all need to stop the selfish, wasteful and spontaneous driving that's primarily based on impulse, whim and the uncontrollable desire to be behind the wheel. We are told the reason for high oil prices, crude and refined, is because the demand for oil exceeds the supply. And the primary driver for this imbalance is due to current economic booms ocurring in China and India, respectively. And that there are other variables as well that affect this inbalance , such as an insufficient number of refineries, especially in the United States. By the way, no one has mentioned another motivating force called "greed" on part of OPEC and the oil companies.

As a very industrialized and individualized society, we here in these United States of America are most wasteful of all industrialized nations. Thus, it's about time we learn from our European and Asian neighbors to conserve more by using public transportation, and to care a bit more about our fellow human beings and society as a whole rather than being all wrapped up -selfishly-in our own little universe.

I've already started cutting back on my impulsive driving by planning before I start up the engine. I keep a pad and pencil on the kitchen counter to write a list of items I need to buy or errands I have to run. What about you? Are you doing your part?

The News Media and Pat Robertson

I suppose I will never truly understand why the news media continue to give credence and legitimacy to the kooky things that Pat Robertson (PR) says. I am referring specifically to Mr Robertson's statement that the U.S.A. should assassinate President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. I am especially puzzled since PR doesn't hold an elected office and really has no influence over the USA's foreign policy as an elected official, that is; even though I recognize he is a close friend of President Bush-supposedly. And I realize he would like to have been president of this country. But since his bid for the presidency failed miserably, I cannot-for godsake-comprehend why the news media find it necessary to bore the public with his rediculous antics; especially when our enemies will use his remarks against the USA. I guess reporting on his crazy commentaries is found to be suitable for an amusement, or simply it makes good copy for competitive reasons. You've read what the "something I have to say-world" has stated on this matter. So, I am curious as to what others think about this issue as well. So please feel free to post your comments, pro or con., All are welcomed. Bring it on! Yours Truly, CAVITEMYR-WORLD. CHOA!
