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...

Oh yes! Oh yesss!! OH YESSSS !!!!!

A picture is worth a thousand words...

(For non-Australian readers, this man is the Leader of the Opposition. He also likes having his picture taken sitting in tank turrets and jet fighter cockpits, and he just positively LOVES America...)

Looks a bit the fat and happy pol.

Dubya would have taken the M-16 by the muzzle, accidentally flipped off the safety and had a room full of press corp and marines diving for cover. We NEVER hand him anything that is loaded [we hear rumors that the preznit is himself often loaded these days].

Looking closely at the picture, I find it says more than the Beezer or his PR department would like: The row of 2 or three stretchers propped up against the wall are a backdrop which upstages his photo-op. To me, the stretchers say more than the gun does about the bloody enterprise whose trappings and gear give him such glee.

A shame that your Labor party is as easily stampeded as our Dems were. If they are so admiring of our example, they REALLY ought to count how many of our senators are finally on the record as regretting their votes for war.

I assume these "anti-terror" acts now before your parliament resemble our "patriot act" in terms of impact on national budgets and personal freedoms.
When that bill first crept into our congress, many over here repeated Ben Franklin's warning that any people willing to give up a little freedom to get a little security deserved neither.
Still true. True everywhere.

BTW, thanks for the link to A Bomb A Nation. It may be the first on the planet! I shall have to now write things there I suppose ;)

I still see the black hand of GlobalCorp behind how our politics has been subverted. It used to be just Big Business, but now GlobalCorp/WTO/IMF/WB are more powerful than any government, and much more sinister is the fact (well I think it's a fact) that they actually shape and control the political outcomes in countries right around the world.

Democracy is dead. Sovereignty is dead. Freedom is dead. With the new laws, dissent (and with it peaceful people power) will be supressed. (An exception here is that Globalcorp will actually incite peaceful people power uprisings wherever it wants, but people wishing to use peaceful people power against Globalcorp's machinations will be obliterated.) "Democracy" is allowed to go in only one direction - the direction GlobalCorp wants it to go.

Anti-globalisation rallies will be undermined with violence and banned. Corpocracy has arrived and it is utterly totalitarian.

"You can have any 'democracy' you like as long as GlobalCorp is pulling the strings."

Am I the only one that thinks Beazley is still a sick man and that his condition is being kept under wraps?

I don't know if he's sick. But he is carrying abit of weight and that can't be good for his health.

I do think he's a lame duck leader though.
