Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

when the war music stops...

By Luciana Bohne, Online Journal Contributing Writer
A day will come when this crazed war music will stop, and the American people will hear the judgment that the Germans heard at Nuremberg—that, in Justice Robert Jackson's words, they had supported a regime which had committed "acts which have been regarded as criminal since the time of Cain." They will also be astonished to hear that, although they thought they were free, they had in fact been terrorized and enslaved by their own government in order to follow in Cain's footsteps—as the German people heard.

Dio... you don't get this one. WE Americans are the Nazis! But we WON the war! There will be no trials! There will be no war criminals! The bad guys won already. We'll destroy whomever we wish for whatever "justification" we provide and YOU will like it or or we will destroy you as well. It's too late for justice. It's too late for peace. It's too late for decency or humanitarian gestures. America won and your leaders stood by and waved the white flag a long time ago.

That's one way to see it, Jeff, and when I dive to the bottom of my pool of hopelessness, that's one of the things I find lurking down there.

Then again, as I said to DS in an email recently: Of course you're not alone. there are at least tens of millions of you in America. Just as there were millions of Germans who kew and loathed what Germany was doing. The differece is that unlike the Germans, you guys CAN still use a host of options provided by your constitution to bring your government to its knees. I believe you have the numbers, but I don't believe you (collective pronoun) have the will and determination to organise and agitate to the degree needed to bring the government down. But I am in no doubt that you have the numbers.

Forget about elections. I'm tallking mass (peaceful) civil unrest. I'm talking in-their-faces protests at major centeres like New York and Washington. Where is the American Gandhi, and if he/she were to step up today, would you guys leave the comfort of your homes to dwell on the streets for weeks if necessary? It's crunchtime for American democracy. Use it or lose it, guys. It's not yet too late. Yet.

I'm not letting the American people off the hook for one minute. Not after all that shit I've had to swallow coming out of your country about "freedom" and "democracy" and "home of the brave" and how your system is so wonderful the rest of the world MUST have it shoved down their throats and up their arses.

It really sickens me to know that there are enough of you guys to sort your government out, but all you (collective pronoun) do is whinge and whine about it or worse still remain, completley silent.

Stop whining and ACT !!!!!!!!!

Gerry, I understand what you are saying and we WILL take this country back! But it might take a major incident (i.e. depression) to make anything drastic happen.

I'm talking about causing a major incident, not waiting for one...

Dear spooks, before you go to condition RED in response to this blog, let me allay your fears of imagined terrorism. The only major events I'm interesting in causing are very peaceful and ultra-democratic. They are:

(1) To bring the corrupt government of the U.S. to its knees through peaceful protests on a massive scale.


(2) To crash global capitalism through the democratic use of massive consumer abstinance and altered purchasing and investment habits.

So, my little lunatics in the NSA, CIA, GCHQ and ASIO, THAT'S Freedom and Democracy right up your noses!

Choke on it, you fascist bastards!

I am making the most of my moment in the sun - for some reason I have not been able to comment on DD for several days - when I clicked on comment I was just kept waiting and never got to this comment page.

Pardon my ignorance but who is this DS you keep giving credit to?

Ron, sorry about the difficulties you're having.

DS is a guy who posts under those initials (stand for Diogenes Surfer) and who emails me stuff which, if I like it, I put it up on the blog and attribute the heads-up to him. He's ex-USAF, has lived in Australia and wishes he still did.

With my crappy anti-social tendencies showing through in my emails, he sometimes spits the dummy which is understandable and entirely forgivable.

It's me I don't forgive... :-(

I think I was the model for one of the characters in the movie "Grumpy Old Men", only the had to dilute it to make the movie sellable...

Thanks for the heads-up on DS. Sounds like an interesting bloke. Hi DS!!

Now speaking of Americans...

I don't know if sourdough bread is American or not but I've always thought of it as that (the first ever sourdough loaf I bought many, many years ago was called American Sourdough and came in a paper bag that roughly looked like Old Glory).

Why am I talking about bread? Before I read this post I had just made lunch with olive and rosemary sourdough bread from the Blue Mountains Food Co-op (Shop 1 and 2, Jones House, Halpenny Lane, Katoomba).

Bloody delicious and a rare treat 'cause it costs around $6 !!

Ron, DS is a great bloke. It's me that's not. If DS started blogging he would soon have a large readership. And we'd all be less lonely in Gitmo when we get there as we surely must..

Sourdough? I think it goes way back in history to Europe. And yes, there's probably also an American sourdough, jst as there's an American Paris, Rome, Berlin, etc.

We love that stuff too. We get ours from a boutique bakery in Springwood.

Now stop turning my comments facility into a platform for sourdough spam, ya bastard! :-)
