The city she worry too much

Now you may say "takes one to know one " You'd be right,  and that's the point .
We all live with uncertainty and that can scare us . Here though , you see a few cycles more than most and you worry less and predict more. Be wise to be open to learn .
Ya see , with people who worry about our territory  is they they don't experience it ....so they just don't know .
And lookin at how they talk themselves into a panic over it , the woories  and wooriers have grown to the point that even I can see their perspective is completely outta wack. Ya see,  first of all they don't live here and therfore they don't know the situation well enough to know about the reliability and context of that thing they say we have --resilience
What I really don't like and why I am saying so today is to see the unecessary negative effect of all this misapplied worry on children- e it reduces our children's faith in science and technology and our ability to manage risk .
Its wrong too when people who are not practical  try to speak for those that are .

Positively though,  there is a lot of talk of resilience of people and the environment at the moment .

Takes one to know one

The community I grew up in had a few great sayings . One of  the best was 'takes one to know one ". Which means if you think you know the motivation of another , be careful you didn't source it from your own mind . Something about logs in your own eye there ?

Trust me - not likely

Polys wonder why we don't trust them . What I don't get is this idea they have at the moment that "We Must We Should , We Have to - trust them " . "Climate change" - whatever that means .
How come,  all of a sudden, we should not only change speed ,  but change tack with  these dictator( they know what's best - not us ) .  Somehow now you have become so well intentioned AND so capable - even though you can only talk about tax and not what you would do with it . I wouldn't let any door salesman get away with such wishful thinking ! What do they think we are ? fools ?
I mean they said we were going to run outa water but look what happened after they built these white elephant ( desal plants ) that our kids must pay for.    Now they say we are going to run outa fuel . But ones recyclable and ones not . Seems like they got the order and the importance mixed up a  bit .
Any fool farmer can tell them they wouldn't know what water conservation looks like . As for fuel - they are the ones that waste it  , so whose paranoid and whose projecting guilt here ?
Why would you trust them ? Whatatheyknow .........really?
