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...

the trouble with democratic governments is...

...they are made up of politicians who got elected by telling us that which we most wanted to hear. This presumes the voter has even the faintest glimmer a clue...

A very fraught presumption indeed...

Suppose for a moment that what is really in our best interests is far removed from what we most want to hear...

What price democracy then?

Hmmmmm... ???

What gave you the idea that we lived in a Democracy?

What gave me the idea? Why, David, it was none other than the those Saviours of the Universe, John Howard, Tony Blair and George Bush.

According to them, not only do we live in a democracy, but it's such a wonderous thing that we must wage war on countries which do not have it, and that they will ultimately thank us for this when they, like us, discover what a truly wondrous thing it is...
