UPDATE: Due to this BS thing where I can do everything with this blog except publish a post, I have moved home to Wordpress: http://ncnblogger.wordpress.com/ (this will remain as an archive and be damn sure I will still read all your wonderful blogs as ever). Those who have linked me please update the link. Thanks all. Looking forward to continued blogging in the future.

Today's news is that Osama is dead. Well it's sort of 10 year old news, but there you go. Supposedly one of the very mind controlled special forces shot him in the head, although given the notorious nature of the invading forces' willingness to kill someone then play dress up afterwards, who knows it may have been a woman who they drew a beard on with marker pen. Photo looks 'shopped but what do I know. Then again corpses just like your TV dinner keep very well in the freezer...lol...


Anyway I'm off to get kidney dialysis using only sand and donkey piss while being hunted by all the satellites and spy planes that a trillion dollar military budget can buy, for ten years. Ciao

PS does this mean the war on terror is over now and 'we' can come home and dismantle the police state and not have RFID passports and iris scans and creepy wiretaps anymore? (Comptroller says no)

America: Thank You for voting with your eyes open

I know it's been a whole month since 'That One' fist-bumped his way to becoming 44th President of the United States, and for that reason alone this post may seem pointless. I am certainly far too late to capitalise on the hype of the election or its aftermath; even Palin is fading away from the public attention.

I do, however, want to add my two cents to the many comments in the media trying to put this election in the context of history.

I had a something of an epiphany while watching Brave New Films' video "Fox Attacks Obama Like Kerry".

Turns out it's not just this time. Fox, and the right in general, have been at it before. They tried to label Kerry as 'French', suggested he disrespected the military by throwing away his medals (It was part of a Vietnam Veterans Against the War protest), and mysteriously, 'research' came out (2004) that Kerry was THE most liberal senator in America. How familiar.

The reason I'm going over this like it's new to me is that a lot of it is new to me. Karl Rove's hate-filled messages apparently didn't get through the BBC filter, and so I thought the US chose Bush in '04 solely on merit. How naive of me.

The main difference between the 2004 and 2008 elections, apart from the economy, was the justification the winning candidate gave for voting. Bush's '04 message was all about fear; vote for me or terrorists will strike again, the libs can't protect you.

Obama, on the other hand, gave a positive message: not 'vote for me, the other side can't protect you' - that was the GOP message. Again. Instead, he offered a simple message, one that I feel many conservatives haven't fully understood yet: Change.

It's very vague, and may mean different things to different people, but here's my take. It's not about a change of party or a change of policy or even a return to following the Constitution (although all three would be welcome), it's about getting away from the paranoid fear society has lived in since 9/11.

Fear has been everywhere: in the media, especially the speeches of Bush (remember, for example, the 'mushroom cloud' reference pre-Iraq War?) I recently saw O'Reilly comment on how the Mumbai attacks "are vivid warnings that if the Muslims could, they would, slaughter every single American citizen".

The point here isn't that Islamofascists are not dangerous, they are, the point is that we (the West, and especially America) have allowed the far right (there I said it, Bush/Cheney were far right) to use that fear to further their agenda. Patriot Act/Unitary Exceutive Authority, anyone?

In 2004, people voted with their eyes shut by fear and propaganda, when Kerry may have been a good choice for President, certainly better than 'W'.

In 2008, however, people voted for Change instead of fear. They wanted a President who would talk to Muslim nations rather than blow them up one by one. More people wanted to focus on real economic issues because of the recession, and fewer wanted to talk about Bill Ayers or the Keating Five. More people wanted to MoveOn, dare I say.

That is what the majority of US voters hopes will Change.

Undebunkable Chemtrails Video That The "Debunkers" Ignore...

...and yes, Chemtrails interfere with weather

And You Tell Me There's No Suppressed Technology?

It's another of those 'conspiracy theories' that good citizens don't notice. Imagine the standard of living if all the secret technology was released to the public...we'd be "free and independent" as JFK said! No more poverty anywhere! Can you imagine being sick enough to withhold such technology from society just to maintain your position of control? (Bearing in mind that we don't know just how much technological capability is being withheld, because, duh, it's secret.) What did Nikola Tesla really develop?

Individual Liberty? But that's "selfish"!

No, we need to look after each other voluntarily without having a government do all that at gunpoint. Sounds absurd at first but soon you realise that the reason it sounds so is because of the very unfree nature of our current existence. Envision greater possibilities! Ok, some kind of massive wake-up would be needed before this kind of free, responsible, uncontrollable society could emerge. And that's what we are seeing day by day in the world - a massive waking up of the previously enslaved masses (including myself I must add!)

Stop the propaganda before it's here. If some kind of terror attack happens in the West, Iran probably didn't do it. They have no history of imperialism and would be suicidal to attack the West. Think who benefits. No bombing of Iran.
