Viruses and malware
The scourge of Internet
With adverts, propaganda
A cocktail of regret

Let’s add those predatory
Who seek just to cause ill
A mix that’s most disturbing
No more the same old thrill

When once, inflamed, unbridled,
One reached out to explore
Beyond the old horizons
New worlds of good rapport

With power and greed usurping
One’s freedom to express
The hope is in raised voices
Against those who’d oppress

What to make of threats that glower
behind the masks of those in power.
Should enmity like autumn leaves
not fall when truth no more deceives?

What to make of freedoms ebb
within the walls of World Wide Web.
Should shrieks of fools slam tight the door
to honest query from the floor?

What to make of those who blind
the eyes of youth, so unconfined,
to aid the past limp on to be
a future of hypocrisy.

Flutter

To twitter and blog appears now quite a slog
But to make a choice difficult too
Something succinctly said
Is more easily read
And can pierce to the heart it is true

To twitter and blog appears now quite a slog
But the latter I’d rather not miss
For it has the power to
Air one’s thoughts through and through
An advantage one can’t just dismiss

To twitter and blog appears now quite a slog
But I guess that I’ll just wait and see
How it goes for a while
Being so versatile
There I go again just being me

A failing president it seems
Is dangerous to great extremes
As those behind bewitched by power
Plot ways to sweeten what’s grown sour
They must create events, of course
That urge a rapid show of force
Attacks upon the native soil
That guarantee the blood will boil
In those unpleasantly impressed
Are rated highly if not best

A danger thwarted overseas
That could have brought all to their knees
Is with a media loyal and true
Sold as a worthwhile thing to do
And loss of life so far away
Can these days people hardly sway
Who educated by TV
See violence a necessity
To keep them safe from ill intent
Of those who hate through discontent

One world, one government, just one
To rule when power and greed have won
That will at last bring peace and rest
To those who then will be oppressed
While freedom’s champions must hide
As outcasts others will deride
And persecute if daring to
Express a wayward point of view
It sounds familiar – a cliché
That’s being born, now, here, today

Sky view

The local television company is filming locations in the area as seen from the air

A helicopter circles round
To capture views of all below
On video, five minutes long
With music but no village song

So neat and tidy from above
With patchwork fields and curving ways
The ugliness no longer seen
Too small to show up on the screen

The living indiscernible
Below the threshold of that eye
‘Look there’s our house, yes that’s it there!’
A finger points as all now stare

Though lifeless is the picture drawn
But for a vehicle crawling by
Eyes proudly watch the pixels play
That show our world another day

Give me a day without hearing
Of war, allied forces, decay
Of ways to manipulate others
And make both the friend and foe pay
Of terrorists lurking in shadows
Of tyranny’s cancerous spread
Of politics feigning the answers
Of living with fear till one’s dead.
The world of man haunts every moment
And keeps our eyes turned from the light
In darkness we grope for a candle
A spark of hope in the cold night.

Wave mechanics

I’m quaking; I’m shaking from news that appears
across my horizon and down through the spheres.
Electromagnetic waves crashing all round
will cause something nasty one day, I’ll be bound.

Re-focussing quickly on what I can see
I try to remember how things used to be
before the invasion of wave upon wave
of mind-numbing tidings, which somehow I crave.

The newspaper dies on the floor at my side.
A magazine open has headlines that tried.
The radio DJ is plucking at strings
that weakly still hold up my sanity’s wings.

I wonder what happens if someone decides
to switch off the stream where humanity hides
or there’s a transmission from out there in space
that brings sudden silence to annoy the race.

I realise my ramblings are more of the same
But hope that they kindle and not douse the flame
Of growing awareness that once burning bright
May bend back the onslaught and let in some light.

"If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear."
George Orwell

They’re getting us used to the terrorist threat
Seeing uniformed thugs everywhere
Who will break down your door
Force each one to the floor
Whether guilty or not they don’t care

They’re getting us used to the terrorist threat
Pouring violence through films and TV
The war games people play
Young and old every day
Gaining pleasure from each killing spree

They’re getting us used to the terrorist threat
So now all are suspect who think free
We must all become spies
And learn those to despise
Who with government plans disagree

They’re getting us used to the terrorist threat
As they make lists of those who dissent
For Big Brother is here
One whose power grows through fear
And his minions are those who torment

So don’t ever get used to the terrorist threat
Just a ploy if one only will see
So the few can dictate
To those who take the bait
Using conditioning psychology

Roundabout

Feeling pre-election blues
Once again, it’s time to choose
People gather; children stare
Politicians everywhere
Spouting, hoping votes to reap,
Promises few trust they’ll keep
Flaunting colours red to blue
Shades of coalition brew.

Kissing hands
Shaking babies
Swaying ads
Killing ‘maybes’
Well, just look at what I said
More confusion in my head.

Words to lull us to their side
Smiles that thoughts must surely hide
Strivings at all costs to win
Opposition is a sin
Hear the voice of things to come
“Tighten belts”, “Things looking glum”
“Better days around the bend”
Just more of the same old blend.

I read it in the newspaper
so guess it must be true
the sky is green with purple clouds
and yes, the grass is blue.

What right have I to question things
the media proclaim?
They tell us wars are justified
when others are to blame. (more…)

Can someone tell me what’s going on in Copenhagen? Tony Blair is now saying that the science doesn’t matter. Al Gore is playing down the science, canceling appearances, and trying to start a global green religion. Some including van Rompuy, the President of the European Union, are openly saying that Copenhagen is really about introducing a world government to enforce global taxation on carbon emissions.
No one’s talking about toxic industrial pollution.
It must be clear to nearly everyone that there are doubts about the reliability of model forecasts of climate change even though yesterday I heard a newsreader reporting that 90% of scientists agree that the climate was warming (why not 99% I wonder?). Of course, he couldn’t have said 50% or less because that would have undermined the purpose of the Danish Conference.
It is a fact that many scientists won’t speak out against global warming because they’re frightened of the repercussions, as has been revealed by the recent scandal over leaked documents from the University of East Anglia. The latter has also revealed that data used for climate forecasts has been dubiously manipulated. Why are we supposed to trust scientists who are so obviously  motivated to produce results in agreement with political policies?
Now the Kyoto agreements are reportedly being ignored by the developed nations to the cost of the developing nations that are now being asked to help foot the bill for carbon dioxide pollution. The latter see this as one-sided self-interest.
Another interesting tidbit is that the money raised from carbon taxes – which people like you and I will largely pay – is now going to the IMF and the World Bank instead of the UN. The former two are unelected bodies with no political obligations and effectively under the control of bankers.
If you’re also holding your breath waiting for the results of the Conference then you are at least contributing more to the reduction in carbon emission than the delegates themselves. As an article from Fox News reports:

“The U.N. estimates the 12-day conference will create 40,584 tons of carbon dioxide equivalents, roughly the same amount as the carbon emissions of Morocco in 2006.”

It’s really amazing. Well looking at it through my eyes it is and perhaps yours are showing you the same thing.
It’s getting to be a real effort to open the local newspaper. Even this regional source of local, often useful gossip is still whispering in people’s ears not to forget to take their second poisonous flu shot, and also that the planet is in danger from poisonous CO2 which plants love with all their hearts and which Nature allows us to breath out. What they still don’t admit outright is that the first may result in one’s untimely, possibly painful death, and the second via the Copenhagen Treaty is going to further financially cripple our generation and those to come through exorbitant carbon taxes.
Have you read about that interview with Tony Blair, one of the warlords involved in the invasion of Iraq? I quote from the MailOnline article.

“Mr Blair told Ms Britton (the interviewer) that it still would have been right to have invaded Iraq even if it was known then that Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction.
The threat posed by Saddam to the wider region meant it was right to remove him from power, he added.”

So, if the western leaders don’t like what you’re doing or even thinking about doing then watch out!
Well, it’s freezing outside at last though the afternoon temperature is still managing to show a few degrees above zero. It’s been on the mild side until recently and the annuals in the garden are still managing to produce a few late flowers.
For the first time we’re going for an artificial Christmas tree this year to avoid the January cleanup. Whether it’s a positive move for the environment is difficult to say.

From the site artificialchristmastreesonline we read of the advantages of artificial trees (with my hopefully helpful comments under each item):

1. When you buy an artificial tree it will last longer than a real tree.

True, hopefully about a hundred times as long to cover the costs.

2. Studies have shown that the artificial models for sale are usually thrown out after ten years

Well at least that agrees with our guarantee period.

3. You can feel safer when you purchase the artificial trees because they are not a fire hazard.

Well that’s an advantage.

4. Designer models such as Fraser Fir and Hamilton Spruce can be found online.

Handy, though we bought ours from a garden centre.

5. Unique pre-decorated and pre-lit models are available for the best price.

Ours was without, but I know people who would value this.

6. Artificial trees are generally inexpensive, because they are made of cheap materials, whereas many live trees are of poor quality and can deteriorate quickly.

Well ours cost nine times the price of a real tree and its quality cannot be directly ascertained either.

7. Decorative tinsel can be added to make your tree look special.

Umm.

9. Artificial trees don’t litter the floor with pine needles like real trees do,

Now that’s one of the reasons we went to great cost.

10. If you don’t like the smell of pine artificial trees won’t bother you or cause allergies

Mixed feelings about this one.

11. If you do like the smell of pine you can buy a special pine spray for your tree.

Oh, well that’s eliminated the difficulties raised by 10 but at an extra cost.

12. Artificial trees can’t rot like real trees can.

That’s true, but they can break.

13. Artificial trees are easy to assemble and store away.

True. I wouldn’t like to dissemble and store away a real one 🙂

14. Artificial trees don’t weigh much to assemble and store away.

Not much difference in our case.

Well I wish you joy and success with your Christmas decorating.

Has the time not arrived, my friends, to finally cut the umbilical cord connecting us to the dream palaces of the elite that are pouring excesses of sex, violence, drugs, and other nightmares into our minds and veins, robbing us of our humanity?
They have already made us their slaves but there is still time to rebel. They have seduced us by inventing “outside” enemies such as climate change and viruses from which they and only they can provide protection, though only in so far as they can gain power, for that is what they ever seek. Power is their aphrodisiac and strength and we are constantly coerced, using fear and intimidation, into giving in to their demands thereby maintaining and increasing it.
But they are few and we are many.
It can still be our choice to force these shadows of humanity back into the darkness from which they came. Let all open their hearts and see without fear, through eyes that may never have seen clearly before, the astounding truth which will bring an end to thousands of years of lies and deceit. Then we will see the true nature of these overlords and the world they have created as they cringe and fall, feeling their power dissipating into the mists of illusion from which it came. Only then can we awaken to the new reality, one offering real progress; a world where Nature rules without prejudice, greed, or envy.
We stand before the door of freedom with howling and snapping beasts barring our way. Must we be repelled again or can we find the strength at last to thrust forward into paradise, into a world of understanding and free of illusionary uncertainty?
I wanted to say what I wanted to say in a few words, so I came up with “We’re nearly screwed!” with the exclamation mark probably justified for once. Suddenly I looked at the screen, at the Word page before me and then I wandered aimlessly down until another page and then another appeared, a theoretically endless stream which, I thought, might be long enough to pass through the center of the Earth or thereabouts – theoretically.
Of course, the reality is that there is a limit to computer memory (even if it does only contain zeros and ones) and so there is also a limit to my ambitions. Perhaps if I were connected to all the servers in the world my word document might eventually reach to the Moon, though it’s just a guess. Then I got to thinking about the media servers pumping out their endless stream of propaganda worldwide, constantly recreating the story of our lives. Indirectly, its message is now reaching the nearest stars, so its pollution may already be affecting other beings somewhere. The media tycoons will love that idea I’m sure. If eventually we do arrive there or they come to us we might not have as much difficulty communicating as some would think :-).
So I just had to write more.

Obama’s going down even further in the estimation of many and it’s his own fault. He who made such a hopeful start has never ceased to disappoint since, except those who are still mesmerized by his charisma or are making a mint from his financial handouts.
Now the “Groveller-in Chief”, as the press is calling him, on meeting the Emperor of Japan bowed 90 degrees and offered a hand to be ceremonially cut off if necessary. This means that if we ordinary types ever get to meet the Emporer (which we won’t but never mind) we would have to bow at least 150 degrees and offer our heads to him for possible symbolic decapitation. Protocol would appear to demand it.
The president obviously feels a strong urge to bow for some reason when he meets royalty and one wonders what it could be. His action appears to be in breach of state department protocol which states that an American president should bow to no one short of the Heavenly Father – and I don’t mean the Pope. The mainstream media is rather surprised by his antics and the alternative media are having a field day saying that it’s a sign of subservience to his masters – the elite, as he also did something similar on meeting the Saudi King.
Why should anyone care? Well no doubt for many, it must seem to rather tie in with his concerted efforts back home to undermine America’s roll as world leader. The last bastion of minority freedom is disappearing under a landslide of increasing bureaucracy, overspending, bankers’ bad debts and depreciating printed money. Europeans who value personal liberty are looking on with leaden eyes in the aftermath of the acceptance of the Lisbon Treaty, giving even more power to the central government.
Well, if the World Government becomes a fact we, its servants, may all have to get used to bowing.

I’m sure our local morning paper is mostly a source of cold amusement or boredom to those of a more skeptical turn of mind, like me – those not easily fooled by shoddy propaganda. Its sudoku is also too easy, damn it! Why don’t I take another? Well I did switch to a national paper of a definite higher quality for a while (with harder sudoku), but it had the irritating habit of arriving after eight o’clock on weekdays and as late as one o’clock in the afternoon on Saturday, if it arrived at all – inexcusable, of course. The one redeeming feature of our present publication is the local gossip.
The government here has a problem: it’s always made up of at least three political parties and presently we have a mixture of centre Christian Democrats, rightwing Christians Fundamentalists and leftwing Socialists – a motley crew.
Due to the inevitability of compromise they’ve all joined forces somewhere in the middle, producing a rather tasteless, thin political soup. The opposition comprises about three hundred parties (slight exaggeration) all constantly fighting each other and as such not really forming any effective opposition to the ruling coalition. As in many western nations, the more rightwing parties have gained in popularity the last few years, largely due to bungled immigration policies and their repercussions.
The upshot is that our leaders (well, let’s be kind) like to push important decisions as far into the future as possible and let the less important ones sink into the quagmire of seemingly endless official and public debate, where they lie dormant until some irritating journalist inevitably resurrects the underlying issue, hopefully at a much later date.
The largely disillusioned public doesn’t really care, anyway. Elections are a mere distraction and unlike many special days on the calendar one is not even given time off. Well it’s true, as I’ve said, that many do have an obsession with immigrants who can’t fit in and generally seem to lounge around, some descending into criminality, and there’s the persistent sore of different cultures and religions not getting on too well. Oh, and politicians who propose legislation that obviously steals from salaries don’t last long.
The latest important decision has been to introduce a kilometer levy on vehicles from 2018. Yes, you read it correctly – 2018. No more purchase and running taxes but a distance-travelled tax (sorry levy) instead, and (how could it be otherwise) there will be a reduction for vehicles producing less CO2 than their guzzling counterparts. The people I referred to in the first sentence think that, at an estimated guess based on experience, the sending out of nine million bills per month might stretch the capabilities of even a most industrious future administration to breaking point, and that the whole system will ultimately prove to be too expensive anyway, as so often has happened in the past.
Perhaps in 2018 we’re all driving clean vehicles with only their drivers producing CO2, so it would seem a safer bet to just heavily tax breathing and be done with it. Perhaps in 2018 little green men will have taken over the Earth and turned us all into slaves – without vehicles. It’s all possible.
After years of research and debate involving the unions, the government has decided to raise the pensionable age from 65 to 67 with effect from 2017, yes 2017. Most unions are steadfastly against the move, as they see it as their members having to contribute longer for less. Anyway, there’s plenty of time left to iron out the details. Of course, many of those higher up can even now go on as long as they are capable if they wish.
On a lighter note, according to the media in general the western economies are easing out of economic depression (or is it recession?), crawling it’s true and likely to slide backwards at any time, but momentarily making slow upward progress. All except Britain it seems, which is making Prime Minister Brown’s severe headache even worse. Well, he can perhaps still manage a thin smile thinking about the coming utopia of the New World Order (perhaps as late as 2018), in which he imagines his personal problems will be over. How naive can one be?
Oh, and the NASA has found water on the Moon, several bucketfuls I’m told. So the future seems a little brighter for those of us who will have to survive on our sister body while raping it of its natural resources or when the planet becomes inhabitable for humans or both – hopefully after 2018.
I’m sure there are those who, in their craziness, see man’s situation in 2018 clearly, but let’s all agree to do our best to ensure that their dreams don’t become our nightmare reality.

“The money power preys on the nation in times of peace, and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces, as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes.” – Abraham Lincoln

David Rockefeller’s 1991 Bilderberg
Quote

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.”He went on to explain:”It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.”

— David Rockefeller, Speaking at the June, 1991 Bilderberger meeting in Baden, Germany (a meeting also attended by then-Governor Bill Clinton and by Dan Quayle

——————————————————————————————
So, the European Union’s (EU) Lisbon Treaty is nearing total acceptance even though large numbers of its population have rejected it as going against sovereign interests and leading to expanding government control of their daily lives. Now it has to have a president as well as the clique that sits in the European Council and Commission and whose powers surpass those of the European Parliament itself. So one sees that the true representatives of the people are pretty far down the ladder of power.
I also read that discussions are under way to form an East Asian Community and a North American Union along the lines of the EU. The developing nations (that strangely never really seem to develop) are already subservient to the rest, of course.
And who sits above those? Yes, you guessed it.
So the plans of the elite are going ahead full blast: three governing bodies ruling over the developed nations that are easier to manage and manipulate, effectively forming a world government. There are also serious moves towards a world currency and a world bank which fit in nicely with the rest. America as the world leader and its world currency must be removed from the chessboard to bring about a check mate and its present government is having a field day arranging it.
The puppets are dancing and prancing about now and final truths are replacing the lies of decennia.
It’s a takeover folks. The bankers, media and political forces are tightening their grip on the world’s population to further increase their power over it. ‘Public opinion’ and ‘democracy’ are competition that must be taken out of the picture.
Ingeniously simple really, isn’t it? Of course, its realization has cost the elite decades of headaches and setbacks, but they’re a resilient bunch with lots of experience in manipulation to further their own ends.
Welcome to the future fascist dictatorship unless… .
Please, will someone prove to me that the above is just personal paranoia?

I went to see the film “Moon” yesterday. If you haven’t yet I can heartily recommend it. It’s an intriguing story and as far as realism is concerned, well, it could easily have been shot while on location on the Moon. This is another film concerning unethical pursuits of big business.
I read that although Obama has called a national emergency due to the seriousness of the Swine Flu threat, he still refuses to let his children take the H1N1 vaccine.
Come on Obama, set an example! See this report by Congressman Ron Paul.
Of course even if they do I guess they’ll be taking the “safe” version without the dangerous additives such as mercury, squalene and thimerosal.
“Important” people are apparently getting this version dished out according to reports coming from Germany. Who’s kidding who?

A report has surfaced on prisonplanet.com concerning a US official’s resignation over the war in Afghanistan. His letter of resignation, which is included in the article, is certainly an eye-opener as to what’s really going on over there. The “enemy” appears to be no more than disgruntled local groups fighting against foreign meddling in their internal affairs and a corrupt local government. They fought off the Russians for the same reasons.

The mainstream media is also playing up the problem of Somali “pirates”, but what they don’t tell you about is the illegal fishing by European and Asian nations of Somali territorial waters and the dumping of nuclear waste there by European nations which is causing their people to die of radiation sickness, see here.

So once again, don’t believe everything the mainstream media’s seductive mouthpieces tell you – shop around.

Headlines

I read in the following headline in a local newspaper:
“One-legged man steals one shoe”
This took place in Belgium, apparently. The man and his wife were both over sixty years old, Russian, and destitute. In the circumstances no further action was taken by the police and they were released. Whether or not the man was allowed to keep his new shoe wasn’t reported.
While not wanting to rub salt into anyone’s wound it does make one think.

I came up with following headlines:

“One-armed man caught robbing a one-armed bandit”
“One-eyed man injured while winking at girl”
“Lawyer cross-examines cross-eyed witness”
“One-legged detainee makes a dash for freedom”
“Father in wheelchair stands up for his son’s innocence”
“Light-fingered suspect gets heavy sentence”
“Bald fugitive escapes capture by a hair’s breadth”
“Car crash victim drives his case home”
“Sailor’s plea thrown overboard by judge”
“Gardener planted false evidence to incriminate owner”
“Astronaut found guilty of parking in protected space”
“Doctor should have been more patient”

Please give me a few more if you’re so inclined.

Are you fed up with all the fear mongering and badgering of the media and politicians? Well, I am as well.
Never a day goes by without a news story about one or other of the following subjects: climate change, vaccines, banks, money, and of course violence in all its forms.
I’m not saying that these subjects should not be reported, but there does seem to be an extraordinary overkill these days that appears to be increasing.
There is the propaganda telling us that the Earth is warming due to man’s output of carbon dioxide while other important issues of pollution get little attention, especially those where only the future of large industries is involved. There are all the violent series on TV, whether actual or fictional, that follow the activities of law enforcement agents in whatever disguises, and the violent and addictive computer games where one must kill to excess or be killed. These undoubtedly can and do have a disturbing influence on the mind, and the young and those already leaning towards violent behavior would seem to be particularly vulnerable.
Perhaps you can add a few more to the list?
If one looks for patterns, one might come to the conclusion that transmitted violence could be a way of softening us up for real violence, so that even morally and legally questionable policing actions are seen by the majority to be justified.
One might see behind the climate change nausea big business cracking its knuckles as another opportunity to drag money from our pockets looms attractively on the horizon.
Flu Vaccines are being promoted as never before, even though the circumstances surrounding the disease are unsupportive of the official hysteria involved. Considering the certain and serious dangers to public health that these concoctions themselves contain, one wonders why they are being thrust on the public in such a deliberate and seemingly inhuman fashion. Are they trying to kill or maim us?
The mainstream media and the politicians are seen to be effectively squashing open debate on the validity or otherwise of facts deciding public issues and anyone who dares to question them is certainly at risk of personal abuse.
In a free society people have the right to be acquainted with all the facts pertaining to important issues affecting the group or society as a whole and to have the last word via duly elected investigative committees. This is the basic assumption of any trial by jury. Unfortunately, to coin an old cliché which seems to be even more appropriate today, “Everyone has their price”.
