Donald Trump's Shit Hair

Non-Reassuring Reading Regarding The Drumpfocracy

The various spheres into which I have antennae placed are ABUZZ right now.  There is a growing sense in some circles that the Drumpf Administration is a thinly-veiled administrative coup d’etat of the United States of America.  This is not … Continue reading Non-Reassuring Reading Regarding The Drumpfocracy

Help, I’m In The Rabbit-Hole

A facebook friend, coincidentally also an actual friend, shared the following video to their page thing the other day, and so I watched it, being the sucker for a good conspiracy theory that I am.  Now I’m submerged in the 9/11 ‘research quagmire’, again… Should probably check if this clip has been debunked, but if you watch this while thinking “everything we know is wrong, and everything is fake”, well, don’t say I didn’t mention the rabbit-hole, and don’t blame me when you’re up well after 3a.m., skilfully dodging the reptilian shape-shifting world domination conspiracy sites in search of more … Continue reading Help, I’m In The Rabbit-Hole

I Love Guns

What a horribly inappropriate title for a blog post.  On a day such as it is…  Please bear with me. It’s true – I love guns.  I also fear them immensely. I’ve had the opportunity to ‘play’ with some guns at various junctures – L1A1, M-9, M-16, M-60, Steyr AUG (F88), blah, blah, blah. They are all marvellous devices.  Machining and engineering marvels.  Devastatingly efficient at what they were built to do.  An adrenaline buzz to hold and strip and clean and re-assemble.  And an unrivalled adrenaline super-rush to shoot. But they shouldn’t really even have to exist, for the … Continue reading I Love Guns

This Week In Double-Speak (#1)

or Double-Speak, And Why We Will Love Paying More Tax And/Or Otherwise Subsidising The Wealth-Rorters Politics, and rorting an economy – It’s a game of semantics, and the bastards are so brazen and cock-sure now, that they barely try to hide it. Double-speak is more rife than ever, and is being used like a hammer to overtly pound propaganda and disinformation into the heads of the dumbed-down, confused, sedated, and easily-distracted masses.  Insulting enough; but so much worse due to the pathetic quality of the language used, and worse again because the brainless media and consumers thereof simply gobble it all up, … Continue reading This Week In Double-Speak (#1)

Nine Thoughts On the TPP Agreement Being Reached Today

Originally posted on Counter Information:
By Nick Dearden October 05, 2015 “Information Clearing House” – “Global Justice Now” – Stepping back from details, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is the biggest trade deal in a generation and part of the same ‘new generation’ of trade deals asTTIP. There are 12 countries involved across the Pacific Rim, including the USA, Japan, Canada and Australia. Like TTIP, it goes well beyond ‘trade’ in the narrow sense – its primary purpose is to rewrite global economic rules in favour of capital – and not just for the countries involved. Other countries already want to… Continue reading Nine Thoughts On the TPP Agreement Being Reached Today
