Looks like this government has finally achieved what the previous one was unable to: mobilise a lot of people to protest. By conservative accounts about 20 000 protesters descended on the the city yesterday, still about 10 000 short of a MCC football crowd , but not a bad effort for a town that is known for it’s complacency in political matters. Now, if they only understood that it doesn’t matter which party is in power…still, we have to thank Phony Tony for doing such a great job as Enemy Number One! Maybe there can be a revolution now after all?
Why have an illegal referendum, when you can make a mockery of democratic process at the same time?
Victorian government votes for anti protest laws.
This is a move to further erode and criminalize dissent and marginalize political thought.
But do you?

Do not ever vote for these people, they think of you as nothing more that dumb beasts to be used and abused for their pleasure. Your only legal way to get political change is to contact them directly, which we suggest you do each and every day. You’ll soon see they really couldn’t care less about what you want, and any illusion of democracy you have will soon be gone.
Protest is now illegal, if you disagree with government policy you will be punished.
A very interesting analysis of the current Ukraine/Russian conflict.

Russia is playing out it’s Endgame right before our eyes. When they are finished, Russia will be the masters of the entire continent, from Vladivostok to Dublin ,as well as the masters of the EU. From the Scandinavian North to the Southern reaches of the Mediterranean, Russia. Will. Rule. And they will accomplish this without firing a shot. Or, but only a few token shots which will satisfy citizens of the West that ‘at least we tried.’
Now, how is it that this could take place? It strains the credibility to imagine that any normal Russian would consider allowing their ‘Rossiya’ to bow down and become servants to Brussels!If you know anything about the Russian character, you will understand that what I’m saying here not only is true, but it makes perfect sense. Read on and you will see and understand that what is happening in…

According to the map, this is the imaginary line which marks the property boundary between the oligarchs who own us.
So now we have to try to kill each other to change this line.
Of course neither of us have anything to gain from this and we risk death.
We would have to be insane to do that.
This week Australia’s favourite first daughter and sometime standup comedienne Gina Rinehart had a few things to say about the unemployed not working hard enough, suggesting that a 25hour working day with an hourly pay of $2 would become the law if she had her way. The age of entitlement is over, unless , of course, you’re a mega- rich mining magnate with inherited wealth , in which case entitlement just keeps on growing and growing and growing. Funny, that…
Russia begins to lose support for the war despite all the propaganda. Could this be the start of Maiden style protests in Russia. More and more evidence of Yukanovich’s dirty deals with Russia and the oligarchs are emerging. Russia has had a similar history of oligarch control, so are Russians beginning to wake up to the possibility that change is achievable, and that freedom is a spreading contagion. Can Russians overthrow their own oligarchy like the Ukrainians have done? The first step is to see through all the lies, propaganda and fear-mongering.
This great article shows the bravery to confront force with peace and deescalate a volatile situation, an the propaganda creating the conflict where none existed.
Mrs Mamchur, who is herself half Russian, blamed a ceaseless barrage of Kremlin propaganda for creating and stoking artificial tensions between ethnic Russians and others, especially Ukrainians and Tatars, on the peninsula.
Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine are really one slavic people,” said the Colonel. “The divisions are only formalities. Whoever gave the order for this operation set brother against brother. It’s a crazy situation.

‘Sybil’, A surprise award winner from Ukraine, shilling up whatever point of view is paying at the time. Proof you can’t always believe what you see in the media.
In war, truth is the first casualty.
Greek tragic dramatist (525 BC – 456 BC)
Dark plans are currently afoot in Tony Abbott’s conservative (oops I meant liberal) government to abolish free GP visits. For many of us going to the GP is free. There is some insane idea that going to the doctor is somehow fun or frivolous and should be made more expensive to discourage this practice. For myself I can’t remember the last time I had fun at the GP’s office. The closest it gets to fun is finding out you are going to get better, after looking forward to whatever weird pills and potions have been prescribed.
So the hardest hit will be of course those with persistent health problems, children and the already struggling financially, i.e the type of people Jesus tried to help.
So another mean spirited, irrational and poorly thought out policy from Tony Abbott.
So if Tony Abbott is struck dead by lightning, I’ll take that as a sign God exists.
A friend called me just over a month ago telling me about Maxcoin, the new Max Keiser endorsed crypto currency. I said I do some research and let him know if it was wort thinking about or investing in.
Yes it really was the new Max Keiser endoresed cytpto currency, he previously endorsed the copper lark, which you probably haven’t heard of because it was a pump and dump scheme, and few people still take it seriously.
This fact alone was warning enough, there were some rumors that the SHA-3 algorithm has NSA back doors in it, but I was out at pump and dump.
Then came the famously botched launch, a huge pump and dump and then, living in denial for the next month, thinking eventually the price will spike like it did in the early days (not realizing that was pure market manipulation). And then a flood of articles pronouncing it dead and buried, told ya so.
Currently a max is worth 1/1500th of a bit coin and the value is steadily dropping, completely defeating the entire point of a crypto currency.
