greening the country

I saw something that beggars belief. Townsville is noted as the DRY tropics.
We get rain but only in season so... most of the year it is dry. Dusty. brown.
So dry in fact Townsville is nicknames Brownsville.
so what does the Townsville City council do.
They have had the team out laying grass in a culvert. Just one strip mind you next to the drain. Do you thing they prepared the ground? Do you think they installed some sort of watering system for the 9 months of the year when that dirt is dry?
they just layed the squares of turf and walked away.
Then it rained. all good you say. A job well done you might commend the council on the initiative. But the grass wasn't bedded in and it washed away.
Now there is just dirt. Back to square one.


  1. America dissolved the two tier social structure that still exists in the rest of our world. It was the major deterrent to economic progress in the world, because it shut off adventure by the many ruled by the few. The two tier, elite and powerful few ruling the weak many in the social herd, meant no one should stand above their fellows in each tier. No one could safely challenge the accepted and established way things operated. There was no attraction to do so, no pulling a single individual forward into uncharted waters, only the fear of being punished. America, without an elite and powerful few ruling the herd, experienced what it was like for free men and women to think out of the social bubble and act out of the box, become pebble-droppers and try to fly in so many areas of interest, that progress was the unavoidable result. This is what the 19th century libertarian Democrats fought to retain for America that the 20th century Democrats are trying to destroy. This is what the libertarians, objectivists, Ayn Rand supporters and most knowledgeable conservatives are trying to retain today against a new two tier society where an elite and powerful few have gained political power and are exercising it now. shows these roots for those interested in easy learning.

  2. 朝著既定的目標走,就不會迷失。.Walk towards the goals will not be lost.
