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 spin just doesn't stop...

"Australia is experiencing the biggest oil shock in thirty years." I heard a TV announcer say last night.

Makes it sound almost benign. Certainly only cause for moderate and short-term worry, right?


The idiot forgot to mention that its global, not merely Australian.

The idiot forgot to point out that thiry years ago the "oil shock" was a mere hiccup as the world adjusted to the fact that the US's territorial oil supply had peaked and that from that point onwards, the US would need to obtain ever-increasing amounts of oil from other countries by either begging, borrowing, or stealing.

The idiot forgot to mention that what's happening now is not so much an "oil shock" as it is "the end of oil".

In the last twelve months the price of crude has DOUBLED. When you view a graph of the the price of crude over the last ten years, you see a graph that indicates clearly, to all but an idiot, that the rate of price increase has already gone exponential. And all the logical indicators are that the graph will get steeper and steeper.

What does this mean? Well, rather than repeat myself, I'll refer you to stuff I said two years ago >>>

alice in wonderland does catch 22...

In a recent report which notably reflects the implicit horror of what the occupiers are doing, the Globe and Mail’s Doug Saunders describes a scene in Naray, on the northeast border with Pakistan, where 200 trigger-happy US Army soldiers huddle in tents, sheltering themselves from regular rocket attacks. He was greeted by a certain Lieutenant-Colonel Christopher Kolenda, a clean-cut, steel-eyed officer in the 173rd Airborne, who introduced him to one of the key battlefield tactics of the new American military — the two-hour PowerPoint presentation.

Oil depletion.

Globalisation of big business.

Population explosion.

Climate change.

Radicalisation of politics and religion.

A perfect storm.
