Rivers of opacity

Opacity is the opposite of clarity and rivers of impenetrable political rhetoric flow through our living rooms daily, in regards to the big issues facing our nation and the Earth. We are inundated with reports ranging from the destruction of our planet, to the monetary worries of the worlds financial institutions and the security actions of troops in places like Afghanistan, but to what extent do we really understand?
Let's start with the Global Financial Crisis (GFC); we were kept in the dark while all those in the know were very aware our Superannuation funds were channeling monies into dicey Sub Prime loans and despite the myriads of financial reports brought to us by the mainstream, we were caught flat footed and aghast when the reality of the GFC came home to roost.
In regards to matters military, we went to war with Iraq over vague reports of Weapons of Mass Destruction, mainly because the sanctions weren't working, while the Australian Wheat Board was "secretly" manipulating billions of dollars in grain deals with Sadam Hussein. This was the reality while the worlds largest build up of security "experts" and foreign correspondents were suppose to be looking after our interests and keeping us informed on the situation.
Now to the fiasco of Climate Change; last years grave concerns for the salvation of the planet via a Carbon Trading Tax (and all the associated who-ha about us becoming a leading light) has totally disappeared from the cerebral cortex's of the countries leading editors and has been replaced by an obsession to pander to the big mining concerns about the repercussions of a Super Profits Tax. If a common sense, consistent approach to this matter was followed instead of an emotive outpouring of fear based logic, newspapers, radios and LCD screens would be pointing out we should be thinking about reducing the reliance on fossil fuels and winding down jobs in the Planet Stuffing Industries. But sadly no such luck because the ones that tried to convince you Kevin Rudd was responsible for getting us into debt durring the recovery from the GFC and that the refugees flooding into our country was not caused by previous governments failed foreign policies, are hell bent on brainwashing you into believing a change of government, in the upcoming election, is the only way you are going to save your ass.
Propaganda used to be the main tool for manipulating large population into doing the will of ruling elites but now we just have a sluice of opaque views leading to a dullness of mind that ensures the unseen power brokers get their way.

When the average person begins to format an opinion on matters political, in this wonderful country of ours, he/she has to rely on the marvelous manufacturers of spin we are all so-o-o familiar with. They reach this lofty perch by dutifully studying the prescribed methods of crowd manipulation taught so readily in our universities and tech colleges for the "benefit " of all. Journalism, Media Studies and Information Technology geared to giving you, the tax paying public, an unbiased view of the workings of the machine that lavishes our acquired opinions upon us.
If we should be "thinking" about the fate of our planet and the global warming debatable topics, then that's what we will be hammered with. But if then we are to be concerned with the unhindered rights of the big mining companies to rape the Earth (and the importance of the assosiated jobs) then that is what we will be hammered with. If they want us to have a "liberal" government, we will be plagued with SPIN that tells us what a jerk Kevin Rudd is...!
Personally, I would rather have the democratic right to vote for those who tells us how to think, rather than for any Cheesy Grin or Mad Monk.
PS. I wonder what Bob (greeny) Brown thinks of the Planet Stuffing Tax (PST).



It's strange the way we have come to think of Democracy, because originally it was meant to be a system were all those involved had a vote in the day today decision making process of their nation. If a road was to be built or a war participated in, then the concerned citizens gathered together and voted on what the united position would be. Somehow or other, it has deteriorated into, once every three or four years you get to vote for someone who makes those decisions for you. While it is not inconceivable that the definition needed to change to accommodate large uneducated populations, in this day and age with Democracy being forced upon people whether they want it or not, maybe it's time we had a fresh look at what it is we are all agreeing to?
Politicians are a strange breed, they move forwards out of the ranks of daily life to take positions as paid employees of the people that voted for them, as well as those who didn't, and join in with all the others who are in the same boat to make decisions and laws for the people who liked them enough to agree to pay their wages and honor their elevated positions. So they inherit this from the people who have given up the right to participate because they are busy making the money that pays for the 'luxury' of having this type of arrangement. All well and good if that's what you want, but what if that not what you want or they are making decisions that you don't agree with? You get a chance to vote for someone else in two or three years time who might or might not make decisions that you agree with, and so it goes.
Let's take a closer look at this and how it works with an issue such as whether or not we want to become a republic, irregardless of what your personal opinion is. Before the Howard years in Australia there was much discussion on the subject and it was generally considered we would soon become one, even the Queen and Prince Charles thought it was an inevitability and not a bad thing. The newest member of the Royal Order of the Garter, Sir John was a just a monarchist in those days and even though nobody had voted for him to lead our great nation with that in mind, all thoughts of going in any direction other than Sir John,s were put and end to with an expensive talk fest and a rigged referendum. Now I am sure that if the people who paid the Howard Government for the next ten years had of got their way instead of yielding to Sir John's then we would have been waving an Aussie flag that represented Australia as a truly independent country, instead of looking like we are still an outpost of the British Empire.
What about the G.S.T, again irregardless of what you think of it, most people were anti-G.S.T when John Howodd assured us that there would be no G.S.T if he became Prime Minister. Never the less the first thing he did when he got into power was to give us the very tax system he assured us he wouldn't. What about the war in Iraq, again most people were against it but did that matter? No, we signed up anyway, not because we authorised anyone to make that decision for us, just because John and George thought it was a good idea at the time. Are you getting the gist of what I'm talking about here? It's not weather you are for or against any of these ideas it's the fact that our employees made those decisions for us while pretending to be doing what they were elected for, which was to be your voice on the matters.
Now there is a simple way around this dilemma for anyone who is interested, if you wanted to become a republic today with the tools for real democracy in our homes and at our finger tips, then all it would take is fifty one percent of the voting population to sign up to a proposal on the Internet and it would begin to become a reality without having to ask your employees permission. If you didn,t want to buy a bunch of America's left over war planes and would prefer to spend all that money on your children's education, then all you have to do is collectively say so. Why isn't the program up and running that would allow this type of Democracy, maybe it's because your employees don't want you to have it.

Modified Dogs

Modified Dogs
Envisage the future by understanding the past.
Even though current trends tend to steer logical, educated, transformists away from religious or mythological ancient stories, sometimes they are all we have to guide us towards an understanding of how we got into our present place in time and space. TheJudao-Christian Bible is  particularly on the nose when it comes to making scientific enquiries and the Sumerian creational accounts not much better but I would suggest worthy of a second glance on the topic of  Uplifting Non- human Animals or creating Chimeras in the search for ‘A Theory of Justice’ or when founding a ‘Great Ape Project’.
While many science fiction writers such as Asimov and Arthur C Clark are given high standing in ‘realist circles’, academics like Zechariah Stichin are generally left unquoted although in his specific area of enquiry, a giant of opinion and a genius of creative theory.  His work on understanding the uplifting of mankind towards the Godly Anunnaki would seem to me directly relevant to those seeking an understanding of the problems and advantages of transhuman thinking. His ‘Lost Book of Enki’ has the chimera Adam transported back to the Gods home planet Nibiru with the instruction of hiding the fact of his hybrid nature. This was because such activity was unheard of and totally forbidden, so while I should be the last to complain ,seeing I am 98% monkey, I do feel caution should be adhered to as this was reported to be the issue the spiritual hierarchy flooded the earth over. So while we can be all patting one another on the back , admiring one another's amazing intellect, in the end it could be the most stupidest thing any being  any could aspire to do.
However, I do think it is all academic because the incredibly intelligent leaders of our world absolutely shattered the ecology of our mutual nest and in reality, it will be issues other than this, that will decide the fate of the monkeys as well as the ‘whatever's’.

Fast Cars and Fat Cats

Fast Cars & Fat Cats

Text: Fast Cars & Fat Cats

Most red blooded boy’s have fantasized on driving an over polished, internally combusted, fuel guzzling, super model on a long legged journey to an exotic destination but I think it’s about time these penile extensions were parked in the museum for really bad idea’s. No longer should rational, accountable, sane individuals have to gaze upon balding executives, exercising their ego’s in Foreign Convertibles as anything other than irresponsible, childish, selfish behaviour. No longer should race cars for the road, be tolerated for any reason, by anybody. There can be no justification for personal transport that needs the power to exceed 200kph nor should public servants be allowed to endorse them in anyway. They should be treated the same way as Tobacco products that kill. The death toll and cost of hospitalization for the victims is unacceptable and all efforts made to put an end to the carnage.
The time has come to stand up against car company executives who think they can continue this insanity while they claim compensation from an already
heavily taxed public. If they wish to continue trading in our future transport needs, then terms must be struck to make sure safe, reliable, sensibly paced
cars are their priority not Bathurst prepared V8’s. Publicity, promotions and advertisements regulated in the same way as other life endangering products have to be. Sales restrictions to protect the youth, legislation to protect us all and fines for the non-compliant.
We have to stop glorifying James Bond’s, Jack Brabham’s and Peter Brock Specials just like we had to stop idolizing the cigarette smoking celebrity if we want to move forward in the evolutionary stakes. It’s not just a matter of protecting the environment, although that’s reason enough, but developing a self preservation attitude against irrational self destructive behaviours and leading the next generation in that direction.
You can barge your way through life, blast along country roads when you think no one is watching or cruise the strip in your hot rod if you really want to, that’s the privilege of belonging to a liberal society, but you should not expect that people won’t look at you like your a moron or pretend they think your cool. My suggestion is that you grow up, behave and stop indulging your fantasies at great social cost.
For those that choose the sensible path, don’t encourage the feeble minded in their self indulgence. Don’t look longingly upon the overpriced planet stuffing machines when your travelling smart-safe and compliment one another on your intelligent choices.

Not a patch on legislation.
I just don't get it, Nicotine patches to fight Nicotine addiction and targeting victims of the unscrupulous pushers with a concentrated form of the very drug that binds them to the state endorsed merchants of death and disease. This is somewhat akin to asking inmates of Auschwitz to pay for cyanide laced band-aids or gum in the vain hope it will help rid them of the fascist state that's killing them in the first place.
While I have no doubt some people have had success with the final solution, it occurs to me if you wanted to solve the overall problem you would outlaw the offending substance and those who were unscrupulous enough to participate its sale. As with everything else in this world of double standards, the very same people who are adamant about Cannabis and it's pushers being outlawed, don't seem to be similarly concerned when it comes to the Nicotine pushers, even though they have been responsible for the biggest genocidal attack on humanity bar none. While we have outlets for the sale and distribution of the drugs that fill our hospitals with the bulk of their patients, openly plying their immoral trade on most street corners in the western world, I for one refuse to take them seriously when it comes to these half baked campaigns for me to spend the remainder of my meager pittance on the deadly chewing gum they say will fix me.
How hard could it be to legislate these corporate giants out of existence? Every time I have spoken about this to a fellow victim, of this insidious plot, I've had a positive response but it seems to me the only one's who argue for the rights of companies to continue their reign of terror are the non-smoking authorities who demand their right to continue to collect taxes; how evil is that? It's not as though the monies they make are clear profit, they have to pass it over to the 'health professionals' who are looking after the ones who were made ill by the initial sale. So in the end it seems to be about the rights of a small group of people who value their incomes over the health of the bulk of the people and they are the ones who are trying to ram poisonous chewing gum down your throat.
When do we get to the point were we insist our well paid public servant behave in a responsible manor and demand they put an end to this insanity once and for all? It would be in every bodies best interests if they just bit the bullet and put the plans on the table for the end to the era of state approved drug pushing, anything else is just inane posturing.

Now I'm not a prude or a wowser by any gauge but I have got to tell you I find it repulsive the way the children of our "civilization" have been bombarded with uncensored images of war. The warnographers of this world have been given carte blanche to pervert the minds of our most vulnerable and while they were diverting our moral attention span away from the foulest of human behavior, they focused it on the lesser of two evils pornography.

The "god-fearing" leaders of the Judaeo-Christian and Muslim nations have consistently ignored the effect, of their lust for war, on the innocent and chosen instead to demonize anything vaguely associated with sexuality outside the accepted norms. On a scale of one to ten, how do YOU rate the collateral damage caused by war verses porn?

If we rate the billions of people who have had their guts ripped out by war as a ten, then I would suggest by comparison, the victims of porn would be less than one. Why are we not as outraged when we find our children splattering heads on the Internet as we would be if we found them on a naked human site?

Responsible adults should understand the irony of this and no matter what your particular brand of belief is, collectively pray that the world gets it priorities in place and doesn't continue on with the insanities of the warnographers.

Mob Rules!

I don’t think anybody would disagree, Mobsters ruin communities.

To get a picture in your mind, of what I am on about, just think Chicago during the prohibition years. Al Capone and Frank Nitti rode rough shot over a whole metropolis, while they ran gambling, prostitution and sold booze & drugs on every street corner. Now stop for a moment and ask yourself who carries out that tradition in our society today?

Mobster require one main ingredient to formalize their rule, a mob; so regardless of who’s the boss, it’s the mob that empowers. The average person
empowers the big bosses of this country and every time they put money in a slot machine, back a horse, buy grog or suck on a bit of smoko weed. They are
financing a system that is responsible for the bulk of family hardships, illness
and death. Now I hear the cries, surely not, our responsible leaders of industry
and government should not be put in the same category, they don’ carry machine guns, they don’t mow down innocent people in the course of maintaining their monopolies, or do they?

Our society doesn’t tolerate irresponsible, profiteering, drug dealing, pimps
because they prey on peoples weaknesses for their own greedy ambitions. Well
call me a liar, if you want to, but when the big company executives and
governmental bodies budget for large profits, in the fore mentioned areas, are
they not doing exactly the same thing? You may well put forward an argument in support of this kind of irresponsible behaviour, quoting the fiscal necessity
and the befits of job retention as overriding the moral imperative, but then you
are exactly the problem I am talking about.

For those who get it, you may well say ‘what can we do about it, we are just
the victims’ or ‘that’s the way it always been and after all you can’t change
city hall’. Well to that I say ‘BULLS*IT; don’t curtail social reform for those
reasons, fight for you children’s rights to live in a better era. There IS no
rational reason that we have to put up with mobsters running our lives and
making bad decisions that affect the very core of our existence. Demand
substantial social reforms and don’t hand over your power to representatives
who don’t have the highest moral agenda on this issue, because if you do, then you are the mob.

Media Magic 2

Once upon a time you could trust your eyes and ears, not any more!

We really must be vigilant in engaging the b/s meter when reacting to what we see or what we hear. Spinsters used to be single old maidens plying a trade beneficial to weavers, at least. Now there are spin-stirs, greedy good for nothing a’holes, capable of selling you anything for their own benefit. Take for instance the gun lobby, they would sell you the line everybody has the right to carry a gun, but they don’t really mean it. What they mean is that they want the right to be judge, jury and executioner of anyone they deem to be guilty of threatening their prosperity. If everyone carried a gun it would be Dodge City all over again and the guy with the biggest gun rules or the scumbag that sneaks up behind you gets to tell his/her version of events while you rot in boot hill.

Then there’s the Tobacco and Alcohol lobbyists, they would sell you the line people have the right to decide for themselves, while addicting children to their products which subtly take away their ability to choose. The government spin-stirs plaster our living rooms with advertisements condemning smokers and drinkers to an early grave while raking in billions in ill gotten gains; when if it wasn’t for their addiction to the generated revenue, they could pass a bill tomorrow and end the evil trade.

The Hocus Pocus of unethical professionals swirls before you every day with the sole intent of lulling you into a state of mind from which they can profit. Everybody knows, every body can see the comb over, but we are so mesmerized by it and so used to the conditioning, we just go along with it. They tell you aspartame will make you slim, trim and terrific and permanently overweight people lap it up by the truckload. They tell you Round up ready, genetically modified crops are the go and before you know it were all shoving it down our gobs. They sell you the concept there is no God while they are trying there damndest to become your god; believe me?

Women used to want the right to bare boobs, now they want to bare arms.

Men used to plot their pay off, now they pay off their plot.

Children used to inherit a future, now they doubt any future.

The poor, the meek and the ones who mourn used to believe one day they would have their reward but the spin-stirs have even coverted that.

I believe in a creative force that doesn’t condone magic, but I sure wish someone would click their fingers and wake us all up.
