text Do you Remember? kit, Monday, Mar 19 2012, 11:28am

you stole my peace,
and composure
and replaced my steadfastness
with love
now i am
like a crazed monkey
hooting in the night

you may have forgotten me
but i have not forgotten you,
rest easy my enduring love
once touched by this divine madness
you can never return
to the world of transitory illusion

there is no reality outside
what appears as the world
is tribulation, tragedy and woe,
a mirage of the mind
a trick of fate
necessary to guide us
to love's enduring wonder
and return us safely
to our rightful place
in Paradise

text The Fear of Dissent and the Road to Totalitarianism frank, Monday, Mar 19 2012, 1:20am
It doesn’t get much worse than indefinite detention without trial or charge and ‘legal’ assassinations of citizens on secret executive order – even mass murdering Stalin couldn’t get-away with both of those draconian impositions on his people. But American whipped-dog SLAVES lap it up and beg for more! So, not unexpectedly, the latest 'order' puppet president to the plutocrats, Obama, has signed reinforces the totalitarian direction the nation is taking. Unrestrained by law or civil government, you are now officially dispossessed, signed, Emperor of Amerika, Barack Obama! (story and 6 comments)

It should come as no surprise that a military organisation that exonerates murderers of women and children in Iraq -- Haditha massacre -- LIES and attempts to deceive the public with mindless and FEEBLE stories of recent massacres of women and children in Afghanistan! The Pentagon and Washington are clearly lawless, CRIMINAL organisations, plain to see! The USA remains the world's leading civilian killing, THEREFORE TERRORIST nation, in the WORLD today!

In a fateful twist one of the con-artists responsible (Jason Russell) for the Kony 2012 viral video was arrested by San Diego police for 'masturbating in public' and 'acting strangely,' really! The tragic, psychologically alienated, clearly twisted, corporate pawn can't even get himself laid! (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

text "Towbacks," a Radical but Effective Solution to Indonesian Corruption mitch, Thursday, Mar 15 2012, 8:13am
A very shrewd opposition proposal (policy) to tow people-smuggling vessels back to their point of origin has outraged Indonesia's foreign minister, who views the very effective solution to rampant Indonesian corruption, as "impossible!" However, we can ASSURE Indonesian FM, Marty Natalegawa, that the policy would not only gain popular support in Oz, but would be an extremely feasible, effective and simple solution to the ongoing problem of people smuggling. Perhaps corrupt Indonesian regulators, police, navy personnel and politicians may now review their odorous position with regard to the lucrative business of people smuggling!

Cameron and Obama -- note the juxtaposed subordination of Cameron image Puppet Clowns, Cameron and Obama -- "making progress!" [LOL!] baz, Thursday, Mar 15 2012, 2:14am
How many years has the USA and its puppet allies been "making progress" in Afghanistan and avoiding international war crimes courts? Take a wild guess then look at the language of the following report especially the oft repeated but UNDEFINED "mission" word. History dictates that America's 'mission' is criminal invasion, occupation, assassination, regime change, plunder and the mass murder of civilians; any dreamboat that thinks otherwise, after a DECADE of lost wars and recorded heinous crimes, is SORELY DELUDED!

Thanks to relentless promotion by Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, Bloomberg News, ABC, CBS, Oprah, celebrities and politicians of both corporate parties, along with right wing church groups and foundations, the Kony 2012 video has “gone viral.” Viewed on YouTube more than a hundred million times by now, it paints a vivid and simple picture, clear enough, its narrator says, for a five year old to understand [the propaganda con and 'perception management' strategy].

text Goldman Sachs Insider: Culture of Self-interest, Misrepresentation and Corruption Greg Smith via reed, Wednesday, Mar 14 2012, 9:22am
TODAY is my last day at Goldman Sachs. After almost 12 years at the firm — first as a summer intern while at Stanford, then in New York for 10 years, and now in London — I believe I have worked here long enough to understand the trajectory of its culture, its people and its identity. And I can honestly say that the environment now is as toxic and destructive as I have ever seen it.

The civilian killing, criminal US military -- My Lai massacre, Laos carpet bombing, Haditha, Kandahar massacres, ETC, -- now invested with the power by PUPPET president Obama to detain anyone it chooses indefinitely on suspicion, has gone public with a new 'intimidating' microwave heat-beam weapons system, which is easily circumvented by reflectors and other mobile, decentralized tactics. However, the following press release is intended to instill fear into an already cowering, genitally groped, whipped-dog, paralyzed American public. You people are PATHETIC! (story and 1 image)

Bradley Manning, prisoner of conscience imagePDF Document UN Torture Investigator Concludes Bradley Manning NOT Tortured sam, Tuesday, Mar 13 2012, 9:49am
Talk about GUTLESS! Read the linked pdf report from UN torture investigator regarding the treatment of Bradley Manning while incarcerated by the CRIMINAL civilian killing, US military and be sickened by his COWARDICE.

Manning was clearly subjected to persistent and inhuman psychological torture in a failed bid to break his spirit and coerce him into implicating glamour boy, Julian Assange of WikiLeaks. The good news is Bradley didn't break but was weakened over 18 months to the extent that he is being misrepresented as mentally unstable and not responsible for his actions when his chat logs -- published by "Wired" -- reveal very clearly that Manning's CONSCIENCE and moral convictions forced him to expose the criminal activity of the US military! So he wasn't 'technically' T-O-R-T-U-R-E-D, Mr Mendez UN reprehensible coward? (story and 1 image and 1 attached file)

Two rashers of bacon a day raises the odds of dying from heart disease and cancer by 20 per cent, a study has claimed. While red meat has been blamed for health problems before, the large-scale American study is one of the first to link it to a higher risk of dying. The data, from more than 120,000 men and women who were tracked for almost 30 years, was analysed by the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston. (story and 1 image)
