For the discerning reader the Palazzo Report, the classified internal report on how we got into Iraq and how we fared, prepared by Army Historian Dr Albert Palazzo and now released in redacted form, is a remarkable document. Although heavily redacted in places, it offers a rich store of information about how the Howard Government conducted itself in the lead up to the March 2003 invasion of Iraq, the Government’s intent, and the state of the Army it sent to war.
As we survey the 2017 Oscars from the eminent sociological source of Mad Magazine December 1975, in regard to the value of entertainment versus reality, reality TV President, fake news, Wikileaks dump of strategical CIA cyber nosing, we can only wonder about our worth, measured in peanuts, gold and afterlife demerit points.
This is where we need to do a detour via Bruno Latour:
Tony Abbott came to power on 18 September 2013 and served as PM until 15 September 2015. The two things that stood out to me were firstly, when he appointed Malcolm Turnbull as Commutations Minister, he wanted him to destroy the internet and secondly that he would repeal Labor’s Carbon Tax.
He thought the internet was to access pornography and that Climate Change was a socialist plot to replace communism. Despite his luddite mind the internet survived, albeit a second-rate version.
These words are written to the strong
Poseurs of power, bullies born
Their karmic turn's at hand
The Western media is starting to get pissed off at the Russian media, especially RT... It is a race as who can promote the best fake news about the other and about the state of the world... At this stage, The New York Times is winning.
The ABC has announced a significant restructure, cutting up to 200 jobs to create a $50 million Content Fund and new positions in regional areas.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has bluntly rejected Pauline Hanson's belief that Australians are calling out for a leader like Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The present attack on Trump by the Democrats clearly shows they are vindictive bastards...
Okay, the guy won the US presidential elections and we don't like him... So what. The Russians had nothing to do with your demise. If they had, this would show you're more stupid than you look. Just let off, attack the guy in the Congress with political tools showing you're honest and believe in the constitution. At the moment the Democrats are only showing they're kids who have lost their lollies by being cocky and blame the school bully even if he was not there...
