Absolutely Perfect image Tips from the ‘Text’ finch, Monday, Nov 12 2007, 11:55am
The future is Asian and for very good reason. People wonder how the West was lost and which forces led to its demise, I can put it a word, PASSION, either the abundance or the lack thereof! Think of that little scrawny Indian Mahatma who seized the popular imagination by addressing Indian emotions and the passions inherent in that culture. The result was the first popular peaceful revolution in modern history – the British lost the jewel in their global imperial crown. Many other British colonies soon followed India’s example and so ended one of the world’s most successful Empires. It continues to amaze historians how a tiny island nation was able to conquer and maintain its rule over so many vast territories and diverse populations for so long. (story and 1 image)

War criminal and baby killer Howard seeks re-election! image Frayed nerves: is it now cool to kill? peptide, Saturday, Nov 10 2007, 12:27pm
We anticipated the filter-down effect of our leadership openly flouting law, order and morality. Yes, we refer to the Iraq holocaust and the anticipated illegal or manufactured need to attack Iran. We shouldn’t forget the new American century’s torture/concentration camp of Guantanamo Bay and the many other illegal torture centres scattered around the world all run at the behest of the USA and its criminal allies. Yes siree, Bob, WE HAVE BEEN CHOSEN BY GOD TO COMMIT CRIMES – just ask any bible-bashing U.S. citizen. [And you thought Islamists were nuts!] Criminal ‘divine’ forces propel the rogue American nation to infect the world with violence, murder and MAYHEM; that is current REALITY regardless of mass complacency and denial!

Elections Oz and campaign JOKE! Representative LEADERSHIP HAS DIED IN AUSTRALIA; today ‘democratic’ elections are pure FARCE. The field of hopefuls are carefully sifted and vetted by the powers, of the powers, for the powers prior to any election. I refer to the real powers that control this nation; TRANSNATIONAL CORPORATE POWERS DICTATE POLICY to governments regardless of which party wins farcical elections.

Alienation, vacuity of purpose or simply 'the lost lives of the people!' Are YOU working more and enjoying it less? What does it matter if you wallpaper your house with money if you have lost your family, friends and community in the process. In a world where we are constantly fed lies relating to our ‘envious’ standard of living and the wonderful advances we’ve made, I notice entire developed nations now suffering from what I call, ‘native envy.’ The Aboriginal standing on a rocky outcrop overlooking a limitless landscape. A land that provides all his needs with minimal work -- a few hours per day. The other twenty hours are dedicated to ritual ‘dreaming’ art and dance. But we are better off aren’t we? We have Nintendo and Plasma TV! (story and 1 comment)

text “If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him!” sadh, Wednesday, Oct 31 2007, 11:05pm
The title is also my favourite adage pertaining to what some people mistakenly refer to as a religion. The major religions are structured, social/political organisations administered and led by men. In contrast Buddhism kills the principal object that may become an idol or object of veneration. It thereby protects itself from the corruption that has made the world’s ‘great religions’ a FARCE and a gathering place for idiots, slaves, fools and manipulators!

Peter Garrett -- washout! image It’s about INTEGRITY! jinn, Tuesday, Oct 30 2007, 2:55pm
I am not a religionist, far from it; as a professional textual analyst I am paid generous amounts to simply state what to members of my profession is considered obvious, it’s ‘hard, dirty, work’ but someone has to do it! I am not underrating this highly specialised profession, analysts are able to draw highly accurate behavioural profiles and conclusions from minuscule amounts of information -- tracing the source of the anthrax (letters) to the U.S. military amply demonstrates the fact. To specialists, ‘text’ is a treasure-trove of information. (story and 2 images)

Rice -- holocaust indifference image According to plan peptide, Monday, Oct 29 2007, 11:08pm
Debate is raging at the moment over the prospect of the US attacking Iran -- as if there is any doubt! Of course the US will attack Iran. People forget the Bush administration is following a plan; insane though it may be the administration has not veered from it one iota. The plan was formulated by none other than the same lunatics who formulated the PNAC doctrine; a wishful, Disneyland, ‘pan-Americana’ dream, which would be just another Marvel comic book plot except for the ‘minor’ fact of an ongoing REAL holocaust in Iraq.

text The century of lost moralities Kingfisher, Sunday, Oct 28 2007, 2:42pm
When powerful nations resort to criminality in order to rob weaker nations of their precious resources we need not be surprised, though some of us may be outraged. The world has long ago accustomed itself to imperialism. However, never before have we seen the type of imperialism practised by America today – it is clearly a failed model that threatens to plunge the entire world into an irreversible cataclysm.

The proud labour movement of Oz has allowed itself to be decimated by management, you know, the people who continually raise work quotas but maintain low wages; the managers who sit in workers' meetings and monitor those who openly question oppression and exploitative work practices. The breed that thrives on DISPARITY, INEQUITY, DIVISION and D-I-S-U-N-I-T-Y!

Dedicated to a treeless Australia -- eat pulp not seafood! image Dying embers Kingfisher, Thursday, Oct 4 2007, 12:03pm
The Howard racist government has plainly lost the plot as is clearly evident in the announcements and statements of Immigration Minister, Kevin ‘no Africans here’ Andrews and Howard enforcer, Bill ‘yellow peril’ Heffernan. But the overt racism of these two ideological dinosaurs has not delivered the final deathblow to the Howard antiquated government. That dubious honour goes to Malcolm ‘rice balls’ Turnbull, who has so ‘expertly’ committed personal political suicide (over his handling of the red-hot Gunns, pulp mill issue) the flow-over effect threatens to drag his party under with him! For the want of a Tasmanian marginal seat the whole party was lost -- and it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving bunch of incompetent cowards. (story and 2 images)

The constantly deceived, insular, myopic, parochial Australian population cannot be held entirely responsible for living in a dream world regarding their reputation in the world today. Colonialist, racist, pea-hearted, scurrying little rodent coward leaders earn reputations for us all whether we like it or not! These reputations are difficult to overcome, it took John Howard and the CONSERVATIVES who support him, 11 years to drag our good name into the racist, cowardly, cringing, dependent gutter, and it will take some time to regain our former status in the world.

Dynamic monism -- Heraclitus 540 BC image The Final Challenge – 7th generation warfare stylus, Wednesday, Sep 26 2007, 11:48pm
Seventh generation warfare is the warrior’s culmination or ruin; it is fought beyond the realm of binary oppositions (good–evil) and faces the most formidable enemy of all, the limitations of self! Know that mastering the 7th is the key to Final Victory. Know ‘that’ which prevents continuity of consciousness and totality of experience. Know the enemy that limits existence to the dictates of men/culture. KNOW and VANQUISH THAT ENEMY! There are no limitations for seventh generation Uber Warriors. KNOW that VICTORY IS YOURS!

Today, the USA is without peer as the foremost terrorist organisation in the world. We should have known! Early efforts of two atomic bomb drops on civilian targets in Japan and carpet bombings of two million Indo-Chinese civilians have been challenged with the continuing mayhem and destruction in Iraq, which today ‘boasts’ a holocaust in progress as good as any other in history. Over one million dead civilians, four million displaced persons and a nation in ruin. Donald Rumsfeld was right for once in his demented life when he stated plainly to the world that U.S. invaders (military) were NOT nation builders – hardly surprising!

text Google: a Tzarist model Kismo, Sunday, Sep 23 2007, 1:03pm
Previous posts (see links) relating to Google sounded a warning which most (including government regulators) chose to ignore but the information juggernaut took note via its own info monitors and pulled all stops in its aims to capture the entire information network! Not content with controlling the lion's share of available info Google now seeks to gain control of information infrastructures by increasing its controlling shares of existing communications companies and NOW by building its own global comms network. The included (below) Australian article reveals Google’s ambitions. However, few have bothered to consider the consequences of Google’s obsessive/manic pursuit of ALL ASPECTS of information control.

The reward for misplaced faith in the faulty model of laissez-faire Capitalism is LOSS – that simple! Loss in the context of unregulated Capitalism includes everything considered of ‘value.’ It is over! The false value system that is destroying life on earth and is about to plunge the entire world into chaos is now beyond any one nation’s control or ‘managerial’ ability. In fact, to refer to today’s economic system as capitalism is erroneous – classic capitalism has d/evolved over the last few decades into ECONOMIC FEUDALISM; the resulting concentration of available wealth in the fewest possible hands is the root cause of system FAILURE!

In today’s digital world of networking and information access, corporate interests that are able to control and manage the flow of information place themselves in immensely powerful positions – far more powerful than any State, government or traditional Corporation. Since its introduction – only two decades ago – the Internet has become an indispensable feature of our lives. In fact, if the plug was pulled on the net the world as we know it would come to a standstill, such is the importance of the flow of information today. (story and 3 comments and 1 image)

nebulae7.jpg image The Distinguishing Ability finch, Thursday, Sep 13 2007, 11:35pm
We have been (erroneously) taught by science that the ability to use tools defines humans as distinct from the beasts of the field – a typically conservative scientific view! However, in its arrogance science has failed to do its research, it is now known that some birds and lower primates utilise objects as tools. Confined by its self-imposed empirical prison science has failed to see the ‘nose on its human face.’ What actually distinguishes man from the beasts (and blockhead empiricists) is ART! YES, the intuitive response and the impulse to create define the human species. (story and 1 comment and 3 images)

As America continues to sink deeper and deeper into a military and economic quagmire of its own making (who needs enemies?) Most Americans continue to prefer denial to the incriminating reality of one million dead civilians (John Hopkins study) and a failed intervention in Iraq. However, reality poses no problems for winners, the competition is purring along as America, paralysed by its own fear and timidity, continues to pursue incompetent government and the consequences that pursuit entails.

Leigh Sales, a convenient face! image When is a journalist a joke? dingo, Friday, Sep 7 2007, 12:56am
An exclusive interview conducted by national security correspondent to the (Oz) ABC, Ms Leigh Sales with US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice was without doubt the most wasted journalistic opportunity I have ever witnessed. Rice was allowed to literally get away with MURDER! Sales seems to have forgotten it is a journalist’s job to DIG for the TRUTH, not allow an opportunity to slip through her very wet fingers.
