And I repeat……

7th December 2017. I am repeating a post I made 5 years ago coming up Xmas – nothing has changed – only worsened…………… 16th December 2012. I sense the same feeling in people as I feel myself in the closing stages of this year. A matter of fundamental rights and principles, a backlash to the last 10 years of erosion of human rights in the name of the ‘war on terror’…. to the spending of kazillions on arms, while many starve to death or die of treatable disease….. to the corporatisation of sport and its sell out to big gambling, to the perversion and monopolisation of the traditional media….to the politicians, corrupt and honest,with their self serving obscene pensions and benefits,to Big mining,the Big Pharmas,the Corporate Barons with their tame remuneration companies,arms traders and drug

Anybody honest out there?……

3rd March 2016. With news that a Local Government employee lifted 4 million out of Council coffers over years with the usual fake invoice scam, and every day there is a seeming barrage of scammers, hackers, blowers, romance artists and other devious types preying on the vulnerable.

The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, corporations are dodging billions in tax and the country is existing as a service industry selling over priced overseas goods and services to other Australians. Sitting back and saying nothing – achieves nothing

Happy New Year ?…..

1st January 2014. I think not. I fail to find a glimmer of light for the forthcoming year. Religious wars continue unabated, Governments spy on their own populations, overpopulation reduces the lifestyle of everyone, nature is under assault by the greedy and the ignorant, the political classes in the main are rife with corruption. Only one small glimmer – it will be all self correcting. ‘Youth is when you’re allowed to stay up late on New Year’s Eve. Middle age is when you’re forced to’

Once more into the abyss….

19th November 2012. It doesnt take a mental giant to see that the latest Middle East conflict between Israel and Palestine is a prelude to an Israel / Iran stoush as Israel frees up its borders. Expect an Israel / Lebanon imbroglio also on the agenda. ‘It is far easier to make war than peace.’
