A Child Is Born

The current furore in the evangelical wing of the Republican Party, over the pregnancy of Mary Cheney is highly revealing.

It underlines the tragic collapse of the Republican Party from being merely a right wing party, to being one infested with and controlled by Christian Fundamentalists (who are one goose step short from wearing a swastika and burning down mosques).

Religion and politics should be kept as far away apart from each other as possible. When they mix, tragedy and disaster is bound to follow.

Let us hope that the putrid vitriol being unleashed by these so called "Christians" finally wakes the American people, and the ordinary members of the Republican Party, up to the dangers of allowing a political party to be taken over by intolerant extremists.

McCarthy almost destroyed the Republicans, so will the Christians if they are not stopped.

Joining The Dots

Tony Blair and George Bush are very keen to join the dots, and persuade us of the "connectivity" between certain threats and events. They seek to use this "connectivity" to persuade us to support the so called "war against terror", being waged against the "crescent of evil" (previously known as the "axis of evil").

Joining the dots is a very simplistic and dangerous approach in use a complex situation. Mankind often sees connections and patterns, where often there are none.

Were we to believe it there are patterns in the sky that resemble Great Bears and Ploughs, yet on close examination there are nothing but unconnected lights in the sky with no resemblance at all to these objects.

The same can be said for the patterns and connections that Blair and Bush see on planet earth. Invariably the "connections" are not as strong as they would have you believe, the dots are being joined to promote their particular political fetish/objective.

Joining the dots is a dangerous political simplification, and should be treated with extreme caution.

Advice To Bush and Blair


In order for there to be a meaningful and effective solution created that will address the current turmoil in Lebanon, it is essential that there is a ceasefire first.

Think about it.

The Real Reasons for the "Low" Level of Unemployment

The "low" levels of unemployment in Britain are due to the following factors:
  • 7 million people work for the state (ie the private sector supports them)

  • Unemployment is regularly being redefined as "sickness"

  • Large numbers of under 25's are now in full time "educashun", learning nothing useful at "pretend" universities. They will not be able to find work when they leave, but will be saddled with a lifetime of debt.
We are allowing ourselves to be deluded by a dishonest and untrustworthy government, and are sleepwalking towards disaster.
