‘Only days before the fifth anniversary of September 11, President George W. Bush addressed military officers in Washington to warn that nuclear-armed terrorists could "blackmail the free world and spread their ideologies of hate and raise a moral threat to America."
But while the United States demands that other countries end their nuclear programs, the Bush administration is busy planning a new generation of nuclear weapons. Nearly 20 years after the Berlin Wall crumbled, the United States is allocating more funding, on average, to nuclear weapons than during the Cold War.
from the 7:30 report …..
Local pentagon spokesperson, rattus government propagandist & branch procurement officer for the US military-industrial complex, was at it again last night, touting the phoney government justification for Australia’s ongoing involvement in the systematic rape & destruction of Iraq …..
Hole-in-the-head defended Australia’s participation in the organised looting of Iraq’s oil wealth by claiming that: “the world was better in the post-September 11 world without Saddam Hussein, who tortured and murdered on average 70,000 people a year for 15 years”, conveniently neglecting to explain why the coalition marketers of ersatz freedom & democracy had done nothing to correct those alleged crimes over that period.
PM warns Coalition of electoral annihilation …..
The Prime Minister has warned his colleagues that current opinion polls mean the Coalition would not just lose a federal election, it would be annihilated.
John Howard has told a meeting of Liberal and National MPs the polls show Labor would win emphatically.
He has warned if they are expecting him to pull a rabbit out of a hat, he does not have a rabbit.
He wants to lay across my piano wearing fishnets? What do I do with this walking international embarrassment? Is it just me or is Alexander Downer just like the star of that show The Office? The only thing he has going for him is that Americans can understand him while he tells us how much he likes us. He speaks Transatlantic well, for someone who's a bore and a buffon. Believe it or not, I've remembered a second good thing about Alex - he shares a similar IQ to President Junior, so the guy's occassionally useful. Sometimes, when you hear those two talk, you'd swear they shared the same brain. You'd be right- they swap every second day, just after Afternoon Nap.
David Hicks has been moved out of the torture camp and into a cell about 20 k's from where I live. South Australian police served as "deputy sheriffs" to form a posse/parade to take him the short distance from the airstrip to his new cell. It's like George Bush just sh^t in my nest. Watching my fellow locals eat their offerings is sickening.
South Australia has now become a place that enforces the laws of other countries, even in contravention of its own statutes, with a lapdog-like glee. Currently our Treasurer is acting as Premier. He's the one who's been kissing the backsided of Halliburton and the military corporations taking over this place. Do you think his opinions might be financially motivated?
‘As a further mark of respect to the memory of Jerry Laymon Falwell, Sr., the founder of the Moral Majority and Liberty University, NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, in honor and tribute to the memory of Jerry Falwell, and as an expression of public sorrow, do appoint Wednesday, May 16, 2007, as a National Day of Mourning across the surface of God's toy ball "earth".
‘Convicted Australian terrorism supporter David Hicks is back behind bars after being escorted from Guantanamo Bay to Adelaide on a chartered jet.
Mr Ruddock today revealed one of his regrets about the case, saying he wished he had made it clear to Australians all along that the Government was lobbying hard behind the scenes for Hicks's release.’
What a pathetic & miserable creature is darth ruddock …..
Poor little wolfie will collect a $400,000 “performance” bonus due him on June 1, according to two senior bank officials. US officials asked him to stay on as a caretaker until the end of June to allow time for the naming of a successor.
In the end, the 24-member bank board, in a statement that all but exonerated wolfie said: "He assured us that he acted ethically & in good faith in what he believed were the best interests of the institution & we accept that. We also accept that others involved acted ethically & in good faith."
APEC SUMMIT - FORECAST TRAFFIC CHAOS …..
The NSW Government has reportedly come up with a drastic solution to the chaos of the APEC summit - Tourism NSW will reportedly produce a campaign with the slogan: "Get Out of APEC Weekend".
It is understood industry operators will offer package deals & special rates to encourage Sydneysiders to leave the city during the long weekend of September 7-9 to avoid the disruption.
The following is the transcript of an ACTUAL radio conversation in October 1995, between a US Navy ship off the coast of Newfoundland & some Canadians.
The transcript was released by the US Chief of Naval Operations on 10/10/95.
Please divert your course 15 degrees to the North, to avoid a collision.
‘Don't be deceived when they tell you things are better now.
Even if there's no poverty to be seen because the poverty's been hidden.
Even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new & useless goods that industries foist on you & even if it seems to you that you never had so much, that is only the slogan of those who still have much more than you.

'I do not regret close relationship with Bush'
"BUSH'S IQ IS ACTUALLY 86, NOT 85... BUT I WAS THAT CLOSE..."
· I would take the same position again I WOULD LIE, TELL PORKIES, BULLY, AND GET MY BELLY SCRATCHED IN THE SAME MANNER AGAIN
· There is still work to do for the common good AS LONG AS THERE IS OIL IN IT.
