Paris: You Don’t Want to Read This

Originally posted on Counter Information:
November 15, 2015 “Information Clearing House” –  You don’t want to read this, and I take no pleasure in writing it, and no one really wants to hear it right now. But I believe it needs to be said. I join the world in grieving for the dead in Paris. I have grieved for the dead from 9/11 forward — the Australians who died in terror attacks on Bali in 2002, Londoners who died in terror attacks in 2005, the French citizens who died in the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January of this year, the… Continue reading Paris: You Don’t Want to Read This

Better Late? (My Little Syria Rant)

Recent days have seen a widespread outpouring of concern for refugees fleeing the broken country that was once Syria.  I suppose this is positive, in some way, that now there is a focus on the plight of nearly 12 million displaced individuals.  There is now broader awareness of the fact that over 220,000 people have died in the conflict, and that almost one and a half million people have been injured [See: http://syriasurvey.aa.com.tr/%5D. And, of course, we are now preparing to aim more bombers in the general direction of the Daesh ‘death cult’ that has infiltrated Syria from Iraq.  There’s … Continue reading Better Late?

Terror Team Australia

Well, now it’s official – Australia is ‘likely’ to be attacked by terrorists, and our ‘alert level’ has been raised to ‘high’. So, don’t hang around reading this!  Run!  Run for your lives – the radicalised fundamentalist Muslimists are coming! Since the inception of Team Australia (a propaganda masterstroke by which Goebbels would be utterly underwhelmed), we have been warned that otherwise-sane Australian citizens would be lured to the Middle East to become highly-trained killers and then return home to KILL US ALL. We then discovered there was a hotbed of terror-planning on the Gold Coast, with men-of-Middle-Eastern-appearance plotting our demise in … Continue reading Terror Team Australia

Killer Video

Imagine, if you will, being an asylum seeker. Imagine you have made a series of decisions based on your desire to survive. Imagine that, eventually, after months in camps and on a leaky boat, you have arrived at a secured facility on an island. Imagine what you would think after being forced to watch the above video. People with no compassion laugh at the suicides, the self-immolations, and the rapes and murders. They have not spared one minute to imagine the horror that would descend upon a human person as the video of the expressionless white face played out, telling … Continue reading Killer Video

Australia Stunned into inaction

We no longer live in a democratic country we have a small amount of people with huge amounts of inherited wealth that has become capitol growing faster than the countries economy. This fast growing capitol allows this small percentile group to… Continue reading Australia Stunned into inaction

Seeking Sanity

The entire ‘argument’ in Australia surrounding asylum seekers and refugees is Shit.  And it’s Gotta Stop.  This should be short.  Because it is easy.  But we’ll see how we go… We don’t really have a lot to complain about here in Australia.  Stupid is about our biggest problem. Despite the fact that this ‘great nation’ was founded on resettled convicts, displaced indigenous peoples, and staying tied to the apron strings of colonial Great Britain, we have always been a nation wary of outsiders (maybe because we scared white folk know what we did and continue to do to the indigenous … Continue reading Seeking Sanity

Exploit The Boats!

NEWSFLASH!  POST BY GUEST AUTHOR!!! Exciting milestone on this blog, for the first time, I have a guest author; the inimitable Mick Trembath (troubadour, roustabout, man-about-town, etc).  Here, Mick has crystallised key and timely elements of a massive issue for Australia and the World, an issue with no easy of answers, an issue exploited by… Here, let Mr. Trembath take over: O.k. I’m just going to weigh in on the Rudd/Refugee thing. If I were a warmongering c*nt I’d start a war to displace people, then basically make them pay to exist.  Then I’d make people so desperate that they’d … Continue reading Exploit The Boats!
