Climate Change Conspiracy? Aah, Nope, Nope, Nope

RANT WARNING Some readers might know that I don’t mind the odd conspiracy theory. A few of these theories are “pretty wacky”.  Some of them I adhere to because they are possible or plausible – not because I believe them to be absolute truths – mostly because they are in some way or on some level more believable than the ‘official line’.  At least, to me they are…  They also may play a supporting role in the veracity of other semi-connected conspiracy theories that I find at least somewhat believable. This is the thing with conspiracy theories.  Once you place … Continue reading Climate Change Conspiracy? Aah, Nope, Nope, Nope

Birthdays For Dead People

I find it bizarre that we ‘celebrate’ the birthdays of assassinated or otherwise deceased notable figures of recent history, rather than the assassination/death date. Yesterday (May 19) was Malcolm X Day.  Great.  That’s the day he was born.  But he was killed on February 21, torn open by 21 lumps of lead.  Why isn’t the observance day February 21? Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is another one – celebrated around MLK’s birthday (January 15).  Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to ‘celebrate’ the life of MLK on April 4, the day he was murdered? Hasn’t their life had more of an impact … Continue reading Birthdays For Dead People

Confused and Interchanged

Can we all just stop confusing ourselves and each other? 20 things that need to stop being confused and interchanged: Can we stop confusing and interchanging ‘Islamic’ with ‘Arabic’. Can we stop confusing and interchanging ‘liberal’ with ‘Liberal’. Can we stop confusing and interchanging ‘Clean’ with ‘less-Polluting’. Can we stop confusing and interchanging ‘War’ with ‘Protection’. Can we stop confusing and interchanging ‘Socialism’ with ‘Oppression’. Can we stop confusing and interchanging ‘Jewish’ with ‘Zionist’. Can we stop confusing and interchanging ‘Answers’ with ‘Bullshit’. Can we stop confusing and interchanging ‘Democracy’ with ‘American’. Can we stop confusing and interchanging ‘Bigotry’ with ‘Freedom of Expression’. Can we stop confusing … Continue reading Confused and Interchanged

The giant and the boy who threw stones

A well-constructed piece on the Israel/Palestine affair from Deconstructing Myths (reblogged, with thanks!). Go read it. It’s a little over 18 months old, and has surfaced again in line with the currently ongoing bombardment and mass-slaying. Well worth the read, and well worth following up with many of the informative links in this post. Peace. Out. Continue reading The giant and the boy who threw stones

TIME Agrees With Me

A few days ago I made a prediction.  It may not have been the most obscure or unpredictable of predictions, but, nevertheless, it is always good to get some validation from a major magazine – even if it is a tool of the establishment. Don’t know how the publishing cycle works at this particular glossy, but the folk at TIME would appear to be reading my web-log and plagiarising me. Bastards. The least they could do is plug my Shit blog in their cover story… AsGrayAsGray Continue reading TIME Agrees With Me

A Prediction – Iraq

I stopped making predictions years ago.  Because I was usually wrong… Anyway, the ongoing chaos in Iraq has prompted some thoughts and the odd flash of premonition.  Probably wrong. But here is the prediction: Within a matter of months the sovereign nation now known as Iraq will no longer exist.  The same could possibly be said for Syria. The Sunni militants will drive the Shia south, possibly accompanied by a capitulation of Baghdad into Sunni control.  The Kurdish north will become a Kurdish Republic, supported and shielded, or just left alone, by ISIS.  ISIS will claim control of the entire west … Continue reading A Prediction – Iraq
