I know its national day and liberation day and all that and maybe its just my PMS talking, but I really don't think we have any reason to celebrate. Let's exclude the fact that our region is in a depressing state of turmoil, the likes of which I have not seen in my 24 years of life, but on a more local scale... should we really be celebrating our country? Is our country so great that it deserves mass celebrations?
The government and National Assembly are in a constant tete-a-tete about a myriad of non-issues (read: canceling loans)
, the government has no idea how to spend our oil surplus and the country is basically run by a troupe of hypocrites.
I wrote about this a few years ago. Its like the government has no idea how to deal with the real
issues plaguing its citizens (like, increasing traffic violations, rampant drug abuse, undisciplined youth, inadequate infrastructure.. etc. ) and so their solution is to sweep those issues under the rug and focus on stupid things like the aforementioned loans and whether or not letting Nancy Ajram have a concert here would lead to a free fall in Kuwaiti morality (because God forbid
our values should decline...)
it makes me sick to see these idiot hanging out of their cars, spraying silly string on passing vehicles and generally acting like a bunch of two year olds when there's chaos in Iraq, nuclear possibilities between Iran and Bush, global warming, turmoil in Lebanon and basically a looming apocalypse... and all our citizens can think about is " Sharq or Marina Mall?", "Bahrain or Dubai?" ...
its sickening... it truly is. This world is gonna go to shit and we'll still be out shopping for the latest LV bag...Now Playing:
