Nobel Peace Prize image CORRUPTION, not bad Judgement or Myopism judd, Friday, Feb 3 2012, 10:45am
Those who require evidence of criminal CORRUPTION on an INTERNATIONAL scale need only look at the ICC that allows a certain nation to kill civilians in Drone attacks almost daily. Or consider the concerted push to popularize puppet Obama and the absurd granting of the Nobel Peace Prize to a man that threatens people with Drone strikes in open press conferences and then emphasizes with the threat, "you think I'm joking?"

Rudd an Gillard, two bereft, servile, political Dunces image Washington ‘blew it’ with Gillard baz, Thursday, Feb 2 2012, 11:01pm
After backstabbing former PM, ‘show pony, do-nothing, hair dryer,’ Kevin Rudd, who it seemed decided to make some decisions for himself -- earning the ire of Murdoch and the White House in the process -- the powers, unaccustomed to their servile puppets in subjugated colonies not doing what they’re told, arranged for Gillard to replace Rudd, Roman Senate style.

Incompetent JuLIAR Gillard image Gillard: Oz jobs culled by high Aussie Dollar? baz, Wednesday, Feb 1 2012, 7:05am
According to Washington doormat PM, Juliar ‘Goldman Tax’ Gillard, the cause of local job losses is the high Aussie dollar not the despicable policy of Corporations (she serves) heartlessly dumping workers at the slightest whim. Oz workers are expected to be loyal, slave for corporations and endure reduced benefits, wages and conditions – their reward for making personal sacrifices their mangers and directors are loath to make, is the sack.

Djokovic, Victorious Serb image Arsenic and the Tea Lady zoran, Monday, Jan 30 2012, 9:55pm
Imagine a highly plausible scenario; refreshments, tea, coffee, juice served during Corporate board meetings around the globe, almost a daily occurrence. Now cast your mind back to a (superseded) once familiar and loved employee, the tea lady, who diligently brewed up tea and coffee (with ‘bikkies’) for floor staff every afternoon. Unfortunately foul coffee machines and soft drink dispensers have replaced the much loved tea lady these days -- corporations ain’t what they used to be! (story and 1 comment and 2 images)

Protest in Karachi against US Drones image Karachi: Over 100,000 Protest Illegal US Drone Strikes jalal, Saturday, Jan 28 2012, 9:09pm
While the US announces it will cut funds to its regular army/military, it not so subtly channelled those funds to support new, high-tech weapons and robotic warfare strategies. The problem is, as the world is well aware, robot Drones are war crime weapons, as they indiscriminately kill countless civilians -- and killing civilians (“bugsplat”) in war constitutes a war crime, for everyone except the US and NATO it would seem!

eyesobama.jpg image US 'Justice': A Marine who Murdered Women and Children gets 3 Months staff report via stele, Monday, Jan 23 2012, 8:50pm
As if to 'stick it' to the entire CIVILISED World, the US military -- now legally empowered by Obama to DETAIN civilians/anyone anywhere on suspicion, INDEFINITELY -- handed down a THREE month sentence to one of their own for MURDERING unarmed women and children in Haditha, Iraq -- have we had enough of this arrogant, CRIMINALLY CORRUPT NATION, YET? It is painfully apparent that War Crimes seem to apply to everyone EXCEPT the US military. So, how's this for a variation on a recent US theme: 'we came, we saw, we assassinated!' Brazen CORRUPTION and lawlessness gives license to EVERYONE to respond IN KIND! (story and 6 comments and 1 image)

Avalokiteshvara - Buddha of Compassion image We Rise or Fall Together manny, Wednesday, Jan 18 2012, 10:50pm
In no way do I cast any negative criticism on Australia’s long suffering indigenous people as a whole though a recent political distraction by Washington lackey, Oz PM Juliar ‘carbon tax’ Gillard, forces me to address some dubious characters in this article. The matter relates to a government media grab/distraction; Gillard wishes to recognise the original occupants of Australia in the Constitution; HOWEVER, she consciously chooses not to view the matter in its historical, genocidal context – an invasion and the establishment of a penal colony that served the interests of a COMMERCIAL and MERCANTILE British Empire seeking more PROFIT by force of arms. The invasion of Australia and colonial development by the British Crown and the subsequent slaughter (for sport in some instances) of the local indigenous population is historical fact, though much historical fact is glossed over to make it more acceptable or ‘naturally' consequential.

A popular myth promulgated by the ‘man’ is that non-violent resistance exemplified by Gandhi and Martin Luther King is an effective method of opposition against draconian, VIOLENT, criminal forces -- forget it, it’s a LIE, a strategy designed to contain and paralyse entire populations.

text 'Appropriate Behaviour' in an Insane World Jacqueline Marcus via judd, Sunday, Jan 15 2012, 7:45am
Consider the HORRENDOUS innocent civilian death toll in America's recent wars of resource theft and the continued daily killing of innocent civilians by CIA and Pentagon UAV Drones, which is somehow acceptable or at least doesn't seem to offend the American mass media and then consider the recent media hysteria over US marines pissing on the murdered corpses of Afghani freedom fighters (or innocent civilians?) and you will get a sense of the depths of real depravity, irrationality and sheer lunacy to which America has sunk. America today is not a nation, it is a dangerous DISEASE that must be fought on every front!

Credit card debt in Australia has blown out to over $50 billion according to recent figures released by the Reserve Bank of Australia; for a meagre population of 21 million, which includes every man, woman and child, that is quite an ‘achievement,’ you mindless MORONS -- who taught YOU to spend money you don’t have?

It seems scientists are concerned over the Doomsday clock gaining another minute to midnight (oblivion time). According to 'concerned' scientists it is now FIVE minutes to midnight! Now consider runaway climate change, massive extinctions, Corporate pollution at all time high, water table pollution with fracking and the mining of scarce arable land, to mention only a few doomsday scenarios and it makes you wonder who set the time?

political and military puppets and .... image The US has NO MORAL or LEGAL authority over ANYONE gan, Thursday, Jan 5 2012, 7:37pm
In the wake of puppet president Obama's signing into 'law' the indefinite detention provision included in the NDAA Bill, the question that should be asked is not, "what'll we do now?" BUT rather whether the world's leading law breaking, civilian killing, warring, thieving/plundering, therefore TERRORIST NATION, has any authority over the GLOBAL MORAL MAJORITY? The DEFINITIVE and absolute answer to that pertinent question is, NO -- none whatsoever! (story and 1 comment and 3 images)

Parrot AR Drone image DIY Surveillance Drone Noel Sharkey and Sarah Knuckey via shirley, Thursday, Dec 22 2011, 8:19am
The public seem to have finally caught on! It became very clear in the early stages of the orchestrated, do-nothing, 'Occupy' movement that the police were very sensitive to being filmed and monitored -- it seems authorities can't handle what they apply to others!

A lateral thinking 'Occupier' has adapted a hobbyist copter drone to act as a surveillance copter for the people.

There is a price to pay for ignorance and America demonstrates that fact daily. Here are two (of many) 'classic' American slogans that blinded and guided an entire population in pre-determined directions: the totally meaningless in the context of the Vietnam war, "light at the end of the tunnel," and the recent, meaningless without a qualifier, "yes, we can," which placed a reprehensible puppet (Obama) in the White House.

The latest misdirected US cold war strategy of ‘containing’ China with archaic ‘ASB’ Air-Sea Battle tactics, which a pack of ossified dunces in Washington worked out ‘all by themselves,’ is yet another indication of America’s RAPID decline in the most critical area of modern warfare -- the latest EXAMPLE of which is the hacking and safe landing of a 'state-of-the-art' US surveillance Drone in Iran.
