Editorial Independence

"I feel a nostalgia for an age yet to come..."

"It's not so much what you didn't say,
but the tone of voice you didn't use,
when I never heard what you didn't say."

Hiding behind words and trying to fool you.

Nonsense is under-rated.

Tango Bravo Lima

Unfortunately history is riddled with exploitaion, greed, slavery, corruption, colonisation etc... but the ones who are trying to tell you that are communist/marxist/socialist types that are only picking the bits of info that suit them... I guess it takes too long to explain, but they are right but the masses will never believe them!

a bit like the matrix, but it's just credit/debt instead of a plug in the back of ya head, but they may get the technology for that soon and give it a try...

But I guess that is not something you want to dwell on for to long, it's not the sort of thought that will get you through a hard day at the coalface. But I guess a challenge there for us to try and break the cycle, depending on your level of cynicism.

Power to the people. Right on!

Inherited Privilege

If I was being polite I would say monarchies are irrelevant, quaint or redundant.

Remnants of a time of 'Divine rule', powerful dynasties and dominant bloodlines.

But really they are a celebration of inequality and blind allegiance to authority.

Isn't it time for taxpayers to stop funding the lives of the rich and famous?

How can Britain justify spending so much on Diamond Jubilee activities for Queen Liz (...and the Olympics come to think about it), when they are in a time of grave austerity and can't afford public services. Raising the costs of tertiary education, reducing welfare entitlements, reducing corporate accountability, weakening labour protection laws. Deregulation for Murdoch mates and other stuff to help the banks and screw the masses. Everybody just laps it up. As if I needed another reason to hate Paul McCartney and all the other chumps on stage waving inanely and thanking the old dear. Ok that last bit is a tad overly negative, but really I am critical of the way the majority of the western world just swallows it all down. Classless warfare.

Transit of Venus

Completely Unconnected Randomness:

Excess Breath Alcohol
Opiate of the masses
Austerity v Stimulus
Oh sweet nothing
Highly Observant
A plethora of poo
Empty platitudes
Feed the ducks
Words losing all meaning
Back to the bad old days
Poorly conceived visual analogies

Seditious Thoughts

Burn the truth
Slash the state
Resist the Urge
Stop the party
Nah, just kidding eh

Revenge is never a good thing, but I always want it!
Feels like retribution is a substitute for justice
not a source of satisfaction for the avenger
But it just seems like some people or fictional characters
would deserve a good kicking, but where is the line?
vengeance, karma, retribution, viscous cycles
It's a slippery slope
