Grey days politically so drab
Merge with weather inclement
Falling rain and moisture rising
See the share price, not surprising

Mood swings colour life’s intent
Rainbows form as showers pass by
Clouds break once upon a time
Clocks, remorseless, ever chime

Marching on with banners flying
Singing songs from days gone by
Onward to the known tomorrows
Built of memory’s joys and sorrows

Myopia

There once was a vain technocrat
Who thought he’d try on a new hat
But he found politics
Demands much different tricks
And quite soon on his face he fell flat

Wind turbines spring up everywhere
And into the wind they all stare
When it then starts to blow
They can turn fast or slow
Yielding energy peaks that should scare

A woman at work on a case
Of a butler who’d left in disgrace
Saw at once in her brief
He could not be the thief
Now he’s found in her service a place

Those who say CO2 one must fear
And who threaten with measures austere
Should an example show
For the cause strike a blow
And stop breathing for one day each year

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.

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

Quote from the International Forecaster

“It has been almost three years since the Federal Reserve took its interest rates to 1% and most recently to zero. This allows member banks to borrow money at no cost. The Fed lends to large banks with little or no control, so that these banks, some of which are owners of the Fed, can really do as they please. The Fed even lends at zero and re-borrows from these banks at a higher level, guaranteeing the banks a riskless profit. Those profits would have gone to the US Treasury and the American taxpayer. These profits for the most part are the result of the creation of money and credit by the Fed. The banks are so overjoyed regarding the results that the Fed has told them that it will keep the current policy for at least the next two years. The banks as a result are making big speculative profits to offset their gigantic losses, while at the same time the economy falls deeper into inflationary depression. This is the tyranny of our almost 100 year old privately owned banking system.”

Why are the elected representatives of the people allowing this to continue?
And don’t think the situation in Europe concerning the practices of the European Central Bank is any better.

Over 200 African leaders and intellectuals released a letter in Johannesburg, South Africa, stressing the “misuse of the United Nations Security Council to engage in militarized diplomacy to effect regime change in Libya”, as well as the “marginalization of the African Union”.
Quote from Asia Times – The Roving Eye

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.
Thomas Jefferson

Robbery with violence
No crime for some, I see
Lands raped and then exploited
To set their people free

Poverty and suffering
Necessities of war
To further the ambitions
Of those who know the score

Mass indoctrination
A cul-de-sac of hope
A playground for all ages
For each a length of rope

Hard times round the corner
Designed by misused power
A world of devastation
To crown man’s darkest hour

The pace and vigour of increasing political corruption leaves little room for social optimism

Relentlessly they forge ahead
with plans to rule the world or bust,
big bankers, and their cronies all
ensnared to satisfy their lust.

Big money talks and silence pays;
obedience assured through power.
The madness there for all to see
is growing with each passing hour.

With history written long before
events unfold that tell the tale,
the piper plays to listening ears
of those not deemed “too big to fail”.

Scare tactics are their favourite ploy
with terror threats as number one,
then war and economic strife
and climate change without the sun.

What must be done to turn the tide?
Awareness brings the truth to light.
More voices raised can tip the scales,
make freedom’s flame again burn bright.

More and more people in Europe are catching on to the truth about the financial hardships and the role of politicians and big business

Once again they must pay, the downtrodden of Greece,
while the rich just get richer
as all that is worthy is sold off to those
greedy banks, corporations, unless protest grows.

All within the EU, do you see what’s afoot,
as most leaders kowtow to
the “Too big to fall” while indifferent to those
who are losing on all fronts and taking the blows?

Wakey-wakey, it’s time to show them how you feel,
that there’s no more protection
from their long transgressions of laws made for those
who resort still to crime before some they’ll expose.

Global warming, CO2
Climate change
Words seen anew
In the media owned by those
Who gladly lead us by the nose

Twisted facts and outright lies
Used to aid
Them in their fight
Not to serve the good of man
But rob us any way they can

Carbon credits, methods green
Energy
That must be clean
Politicians play their game
Designed to dull, exploit, and tame

Freedoms ebbing, rights for sale
Speak the truth
To no avail
Money rules in wonderland.
Where dreams are built upon quicksand

The yearly meeting of the Bilderberg elite group is taking place now in Switzerland. If you think it’s just an innocent get-together then think again.

They’re meeting again those elite few
The state of the world to debate
St. Moritz in Switzerland hosts them
These who with their power would dictate

Behind closed doors they will be plotting
And wining and dining in style
We people are pawns on their chessboard
A game they’ve been playing a while

Discussions informal and secret
Are held to decide what to do
To maintain their grip on a future
Not bright for the likes of we two

You think they might have good intentions
Well, look at the world we live in
If these people loved peace and freedom
Why are there now wars none can win?

Is there a connection?

If you’re reading this, then the world still hasn’t ended. I understand Mr Camping won’t be available for comment for some time due to unforeseen circumstances.
This week the local supermarket has reduced the price of 100 products to 1 euro — perhaps to celebrate the above.
Another eruption has taken place in Iceland, with the wind luckily blowing its excreta in the direction of Greenland according to relieved aviation sources in Europe.
A prominent member of the elite has been arrested for groping a hotel maid. They think they can get their hands on anything these days.
Carbon dioxide is still public enemy number one, which those in power are going to save us from for a large fee — don’t hold your breath.
Big bankers and their loyal politicians are still actively engaged in destroying national economies, even to the extent of putting their own wealth and reputations at risk, with the suffering people no doubt viewed as collateral damage. Even Keynes might be turning in his grave.
Obama’s still having a rough time getting his speeches right.
Lady Gaga has dethroned Oprah, which seems to me a good move.
The US and its allies continue on the path to bankruptcy in order to maintain, protect, and expand their empire abroad in the name of fighting terror, causing the number of terrorists to increase, which requires expanding even further their empire abroad …. Of course, this is an ideal situation for the industrial/military complex, at least in the short term.
I may have got it wrong, but it seems the British Queen has been banned from visiting Northern Ireland in the future for refusing a pint of Guinness.
According to the alternative media, 2012 promises to be an exceptionally eventful year even if the Maya’s predictions prove to be a bit out.

I feel the answer to my first question must be yes if at some level we still function as a race, though the equations governing human society would appear to have reached a complexity that even Mother Nature has difficulty working with.
I admit to feeling the chill of a Mayan seer looking over my shoulder and smiling.

More wind turbines means more power stations
when they’re coupled to the grid,
to guarantee a steady flow;
it’s plain to see when once you know
that energy from wind though free
depends upon its speed power three.
Great fluctuations, random too,
is thus a fact none can eschew.

Both inefficient and a danger
to the large-scale power supply
one wonders who then stand to gain
from chopping air, birds, slicing rain.
Those who find them attractive may
stand with but few, I dare to say,
and subsidised it seems they’ll stay –
no prizes to guess who must pay.

I refer you to this very readable article by an expert who will let you in on secrets concerning wind turbines others don’t want you to know:

The fog clears as I read the page
The Sun’s heat burns as rockets fall
Man’s troubles in this world of sin
Not only caused by Laden Bin

As radiation from the cores
That those condemned fight to suppress
Consumes the land of Rising Sun
One thinks back to how war was won

Cold hearts can freeze until wills break
And shatter on the blood soaked soil
Their minions pound at every door
Until unhinged they close no more

Now open to foul stench of lies
The houses filled with broken dreams
Give no more shelter from the storm
That rages on till all conform

The rich just hire the clever
And bribe the rest you see
The poorer have to pay the bills
But outcasts ever be

The company you work for
May pay you well or not
But at a pinch they’ll go abroad
Where others work for squat

Your government is caring
As long as all goes well
But if its spending’s threatened
You’ll soon know how to tell

A world of greed and fear is where
We live with toys to calm
Commerce the real religion now
Your future in their palm

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.

How hypocritical of the US government and its allies to accuse the Egyptian Dictator of wrongfully suppressing free speech during the present uprising when the US is preparing legislation to do the same, and the UK, Australia and New Zeeland already have it in place, see here.

The West, once haven for the free
Now victim of a powerful few
Becomes no different from the rest
Where freedom is with force suppressed

In fear of losing power to rule
They need to disallow free speech
And “terrorists” provide the way
To make us bend and make us pay

Those who submit without protest
Will find no peace when they are slaves
Of masters who seek paradise
A madness that’s worth any price

Looking out from the European Dictatorship, many eyes are fixed on moves in the US that could have far-reaching effects worldwide.
The Federal Reserve (FED) is to be investigated by a congressional committee consisting of those, including Ron Paul, who are strongly opposed to its secretive and unconstitutional methods. The FED has poured trillions of taxpayers’ dollars into financial entities in the US and Europe to make it look like they were solvent, when in fact they were all insolvent and still are bankrupt. Citizens are finally realizing that the banks are the problem and that they are being forced to bail them out.

Though more waken to injustice
There endures a status quo
With the same old nags and urges
From the “buy our products” show

And the politicians struggle
With the same destructive chores
Propping banks up with our money
And supporting phoney wars

As our pockets slowly empty
And debt rises uncontrolled
For the coming generations
It’s a future bleak and cold

One bright light shines in the darkness
In the land that once was free
Ron Paul gets to ask some questions
And they’ll get the third degree

Those who now control the purse strings
Who play games the rich to aid
Must at last reveal their methods
And how much to whom was paid

As with David and Goliath
Small things can lead to great change
So let’s join the fight for freedom
There’s a lot to rearrange

"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

Big Bang

Imagine a balloon appearing
Nowhere out of nothing
Expanding into nothing too
Well, if you can then good for you

State

Those who represent the people
Swearing oaths them to protect
From injustice inside, outside
Now are losing all respect

Seen to favour those most powerful
To the cost of you and I
Enemies designed to fool us
Death of freedom justify

Nature

That of which all are a part
Our beings, even you and I
Though we then separate through fear
What once was whole and simply clear

Death of the Ego

If there’s no more a centre
To measure here to there
Then all is just connected
A very strange affair

Not something to imagine
Not something to dissect
An integrated wholeness
With purpose I suspect
