On Your Marks, Get Set….. Vote!!!

Smell BS 2 hours. 2 hours of political double speak, imploring looks to camera, feigned care and concern, enthusiastic hand gestures, and since when did racism become patriotic?

Patriotism – to express: love, devotion, and vigorous support for one’s country. Strange, I can’t see where it suggests showing animosity to, and blaming your country’s ills on, foreigners. Nigel Farright (UKIP) may have been spot on when he said being part of the EU means having an Open Door to all other EU members, but Natalie Bennett (Green) made a far more pertinent point when stating that it was not foreigners that caused our problems – it was, and still is, Government policy. Who decided to sell off council houses and put a block on building more? Who decided to close hospitals and A&E departments in favour of dedicated, specialist, centres of excellence? (Oh, has anyone got a ‘centre of excellence’ near them? What’s it like?). Who chose not to build more schools even though the birth rate went up? Remember there are 5 years between birth and school. 5 years is long enough to build a school isn’t it? Who chose to reduce monies paid to Social Care after years of telling us about the strain put on the NHS by an ageing population? Who signed us up to the Maastricht Treaty? Do I need to go on? Are you still going to blame immigration? Any true patriot will be holding every Government in power from about 1978 onwards responsible for this, not viewing it in the short-term and laying it all at the feet of immigrants. A patriot takes pride in their country. If you are not proud of your homeland, blame the ones who have failed it – and that will always, always, be the Government. Whether through Treaties or wars, it is Government policy that has screwed us over.

David Cameraman (Con) saying a vote for UKIP is a backdoor vote for Labour, oh dear, is he deliberately ignoring that loads of Tory MPs and donators have defected to UKIP? This is probably a good time to point out that Farright was a staunch Conservative for many years, only leaving because John Major signed the UK up to the Maastricht Treaty, long after Thatcher had torn both the country and its’ people apart. Though he likes to portray the image of being ‘one of the lads’, Nigel went to a public school and then went to work at the Stock Exchange. Having him as Prime Minister is a 1%ers wet dream!! A vote for ‘our Nige’ is a tacit agreement to an extremely right-wing Government – so if you’re enjoying the austerity measures and the continued flow of money to the 1%, vote UKIP.

Now don’t get me wrong I want out of Europe as much as anyone with a brain does, preferably yesterday, but if we’re going to corner our MPs and Government we need to do it with a better argument than racism. Here is a link to an article that lays it out majestically… http://pol-check.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/membership-of-eu-pros-and-cons.html

Mismanagement and Corruption

The EU accounts have not passed their audit for 18 years.  The former European Commission Chief Accountant, Marta Andreasen, said of the latest failed audit that:  ‘If this report, outlining as it does the continued gross mismanagement of EU funds, doesn’t set alarm bells ringing in Downing Street then nothing will.’  This mismanagement and probable corruption is always ignored in discussions of the EU.  The EU is not a place where politics and government are cleaner and better, it is the opposite. As Daniel Hannan put it: “The EU is no longer an ideological project, but a racket – a mechanism for redistributing wealth to people who, directly or indirectly, are on its payroll.”

I took that straight out of the article, which I strongly suggest you read. It details the trade deficits, differences in law, politics, international trade treaties, the single currency, free movement of labour, how Corporations are avoiding tax, everything. THIS is what we need to take on our not so noble leaders, THIS is how we make them squirm. We don’t need a racist chant from UKIP and their Conservative backers to make a complete mess of it all, we need level-headed, intelligent, qualified people to work it through and get us out as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Here we arrive at the crux of the whole election con. Just how are any of the candidates qualified to run the country? With Farright, Cameraman, Millipede and Pegg we see the ‘who you know’ effect. Nigel is the only one who has had a job, though working in the Stock Exchange is hardly run of the mill employment. Where is the experience of running a successful business? Managing a sizeable, happy workforce who are justly rewarded for their time and efforts? Balancing the company accounts? Ed is the only one of them that went to a state school, though after achieving fairly average grades he soon became one of the Oxbridge mob (Daddy lectured in the London School of Economics, wink wink). He wants to bring in a minimum wage of £8 per hour by 2020. £8!!! The Greens want a living wage of £10 per hour in the same timescale. What planet are these people living on?!! In London the ‘living wage’ is already £8.80 an hour – and people are still having to claim housing benefit and working tax credits so they can afford to eat! If your wages have to be topped up, guess what…. it’s not a living wage!

Nicola Sturgeon (SNP) is a qualified solicitor, and we all know how legalese (the twisted version of English practiced by lawyers) is used against us, so we have to be REALLY careful before agreeing to anything she says. Natalie Bennett (Green) was a journalist, has a degree in Mass Communication, is a fierce feminist and wants to cover the land in useless wind turbines instead of funding scientific explorations into new ways of harnessing natural energies. Leanne Wood (Plaid Cymru) is a former probation officer who spoke fantastically on behalf of Wales but appears too emotional to successfully wield a great deal of power.

That’s it. That’s our choice. The rich boys or the angry women. Are you beginning to see how we are truly being fucked over? Who chose these people as our potential leaders? No-one asked us what qualities we are looking for in a future Prime Minister. No-one asked us what qualities we are looking for in any potential Cabinet Minister. We get to elect the already selected, as chosen by Bankers and Big Business, or ‘The Paymasters’ as Nick Fallon (LibDem) referred to them a couple of years ago. The Paymasters are meant to be the general public! Isn’t that part of what you pay taxes for? Isn’t that why the needs of The People are meant to come first? Being a Member of Parliament used to be an honour. It was a position that showed you had acheived a standing of respectibility in your community. It signified that you were successful in the eyes of your peers. It meant that you were trusted and knew what you were talking about. Now we have career politicians that have never had a career, are despised by the public and held in contempt by intelligensia. A Cabinet full of ‘old school ties’ that couldn’t even get a 1st in their Degrees, are you fucking kidding me?!!

In society today our priorities are upside down. We place more value on looks and image than intellect. Geeks are comedy fodder while Joey Essex and co are held as icons. While we may snigger and say the TOWIE crew would make a better job of running the country, do we really mean it? That’s a serious question because, if you step back and look, that’s exactly the way we are going. It’s time to re-evaluate our position with regard to intelligence. It’s time to call for the brightest, most adept, clearest thinking people of our Nation to come forward and lead. The ones who wont try point scoring based on public opinion but will focus on the real problems and work together to resolve them. We shouldn’t need elections. The most intelligent among us (regardless of their background) should be placed in position by their peers and held responsible to The People. If they fuck up they lose their place.

The proper function of the State is to optimise itself through optimising each and every one of its citizens. It has to maximise the potential of everyone, from any background. The optimal State is the one governed by its smartest and most meritorious citizens – Plato’s Philosopher Kings, who are not allowed to accumulate any private wealth and must be devoted entirely to the public good, the opposite of today’s rulers of the world.

Every person must be allowed to go as far as their talents take them, and that means they must not be up against a rigged system of privilege, cronyism and nepotism, designed to favour the children of the Elite and to obstruct the progress of everyone else.

http://armageddonconspiracy.co.uk/

The vote is the last piece of power We The People have in our sham of a democracy. It is important. It can still cause the Elite problems, but only if we use it wisely. A vote for any of the established Parties is a vote to keep the current system in place. However if you vote National Health Action Party, Independent or any gimmick party, it has an effect. If enough do we get to send shockwaves through the Establishment. I see little value in ‘spoiling’ the ballot paper, it’s simply thrown away, but –  you can pick up your ballot paper and walk out with it. That at least screws their count and causes all kinds of hassle! If enough do they would have to run the whole thing again! If everyone eligible to vote actually did we could have our first Independent Government. This election is a time to shake up the Establishment, to let them know we are not taking their crap anymore…

Vegans, Vegetarians and Meat Eaters

Fuck Off

If one more Morally Superior vegan or vegetarian accuses me of supporting animal cruelty or being a ‘dumb’ meat eater without even engaging in a conversation to find out WHY I eat meat I do believe I will scream. Luckily these moralistic ones are few and far between and the majority are happy with their own choices without feeling the need to assert their judgemental superiority over others. But these moralistic ones are really beginning to piss me off!!

Some may consider what follows to be inflammatory, defensive and possibly derogatory, but it’s not. It is a culmination of what I have learned, realised and researched over the last few years, what you make of it is up to you. I have never and would never try to talk someone in or out of a particular diet, though I am always happy to offer guidance if asked. Too often these days diets are undertaken or changed on a whim without people understanding the basics of physiology and bio-chemistry. How do you decide the best way to fuel your individual body if you don’t know how your individual body uses that fuel? Or shall we all just look at our neighbours’ electric car, decide that looks cool and so start plugging in our petrol cars? Yes the effect of changing your diet can be that dramatic but as the human body is about the most amazing thing ever created, and will continue supporting life through years of misuse and abuse, it takes a lot longer for the problems to show. Just as there is no ‘one size fits all’ in clothing, no ‘one style suits all’ in hair, no ‘one tablet works for all’ in pain management, no ‘one belief system suits all’ in philosophy, there is no ‘one suitable for all’ in diet either. And as far as veganism is concerned the top myth can be exploded straight away…

There is no naturally vegan mammal on the planet. Ahhhh, I can hear the screams now! What about the elephant? What about horses, cows, sheep, hippos and gorillas? Yeah, what about them? They live on HUGE amounts of fruit, grass, leaves and roots which also happen to be the habitat of countless insects plus their eggs and larvae. Even if it’s just half a hoof-full a day, that is a significant amount of animal protein plus other minerals and enzymes in their diet. As for citing whales as vegans, that is surely the most laughable comparison of all. Plankton is NOT just plant life but also contains small crustaceans, along with the eggs and larvae of other sea life too. Whales are not vegan. The lowly but endearing dormouse can only be described as vegetarian at best being as they will feast on cheese, honey and fat as often as possible. Even in the insect world you are hard pushed to find vegans, but they are there – green flies, butterflies, fruit flies to name a few. Doesn’t have quite the same ring to it though does it? Here, let’s all be vegan like the green-fly? Oh and that village in the Himalayas where they’ve all been vegan for 500+ years? They drink butter tea, eat honey and partake of mutton or goat on special occasions. Add to that they only became vegetarian when Buddhism found them some 500+ years ago and you also begin to realise that there has never been an indigenous tribe anywhere living a purely vegetarian life, never mind a vegan one.

Having said all that you may be surprised to find that I believe most meat eaters (with particular exceptions) consume far too much meat. The portion sizes that we have become used to are way beyond what is needed and many of us could limit such intake to three or four times a week without any negative impact on overall health. When it comes to health the best thing anyone can do is stop eating the refined, processed, ready meal type foods, eat what is fresh and seasonal, and cook from scratch. There is NO evidence that eating eggs or animal fat increases cholesterol levels, in fact those dangers come from using margarines and heated vegetable oils, including olive oil, which become unstable over 50c. The same is true for heart disease and bowel and colon cancer, it’s not the animal fats that do the damage it’s the so called ‘healthy’ alternatives. If these three diseases were caused by eating animal products they would have been steadily declining from the 1960’s, instead all three are on the increase with more females being diagnosed with them than ever before. Females. Those who are most concerned with their weight and eating ‘right’. Those who jumped on the margarine and vegetable oil bandwagon because it was said to be healthier. Slowly, slowly the truth is coming out, sadly it is too late for some. I’m not going to say much about detoxing because the whole thing is ridiculous and if you are eating a good, fresh, nutritionally balanced diet your body can detox quite happily without you living on cabbage soup for 7 days. These fad detoxes do more harm than good and anyone promoting these things should be exposed for the charlatan that they are. If you want to detox properly, healthfully and safely it will take you a year, during which you will be a vegetarian for the summer and early autumn.

If you want eat the diet best suited to you, find out your blood group and invest in the book The Eat Right Diet by Peter D’Adamo. I could give you examples of people I know eating the opposite of their recommended diets and dealing with weight gain, repeated respiratory tract infections, psoriasis, impaired mental functions, reduced energy levels, arthritis, hormonal imbalances, erratic mood swings and so on – but why not try it and find the benefits for yourself. The book also details illnesses most likely to affect particular blood groups and how these can be prevented or healed. As a guide to your optimal diet, and taking into account bio-chemical differences, I haven’t found anything better.

As for accusing meat eaters of being murderers and supporting animal cruelty, well let’s just turn that particular looking glass around and have a closer look at the impact increasing numbers of vegetarians and vegans are having on animal life shall we? Legumes are not commercially grown in the UK as they have a tendency to be unreliable, often failing due to different rots and fungi. Most often you will find your bag or tin of lentils, kidney beans, aduki beans, chickpeas, etc will say ‘the produce of many countries’. This can also be read as ‘increasing amounts of woodland and forest being cut down leaving all animals previously living there either dead or homeless’. Tractors squash rabbits, moles and mice every day. The drive to produce more grain is directly involved with the increased use of pesticides which have led to the collapse of countless bee colonies, from which we can also surmise that other insect life has been adversely affected with a consequential knock on effect on birds and other animals that depend on them as a food source. Add to that ‘run off’ leading to local streams and rivers being contaminated with these chemicals, killing off water fleas, aquatic worms and other water borne bugs, causing fish numbers to drop thereby making life very uncomfortable for birds, otters and other river based hunters. Of course having to import so much food means a greater number of plane flights, and they kill thousands of birds every year, while the pollution caused by transporting goods over seas has devastated sea life. And I hope all those moralists are checking the labels for palm oil before venting their indignant outrage over the plight of the orang-utan. No matter what diet you follow, you have blood on your hands – or are the lives of insects and birds not as worthy as cows and pigs?

Most meat eaters that I know consider themselves to be animal lovers. They DO care about the environment that animals are raised in. The thought of battery chickens being kept in such awful conditions and being forced to lay eggs there sickens them. The majority also pay for better quality meats when their finances allow. I even know some that have reduced their meat consumption so they can afford to buy only quality, organic meats and eggs. When you meet someone that eats meat and doesn’t give a crap about how those animals were raised you are not meeting a standard meat eater, you are meeting a heartless bastard. There is a difference. We know shops are guided by purchase power, right? So who do you think has more influence when pressuring shops to better label these goods? Vegans and vegetarians who don’t eat it, or meat eaters that want to be able to make clear, ethical decisions? We all agree that animals should be treated better, that their living standards should be raised, but more importantly – they shouldn’t have been allowed to get so bad in the first place!! As for the shocking state of abattoirs, well you need look no further than John Major’s Tory Gov’t for that. A 32 page booklet of guidelines came in from the EU and was translated into a 118 page, cast in gold, set in stone, list of regulations that the small, independent abattoirs didn’t stand a hope of achieving. Becoming vegan or vegetarian isn’t going to change this. Reducing the amount of money going to the farmers is more likely to ensure that animal living standards drop again. Instead of berating meat eaters, why not talk to them about making choices which support farmers who raise animals naturally?

Finally there is one group of people that deserve special consideration in all this. Around one third of epileptics will find no anti convulsants that can help control their seizures. Surprisingly, one third of epileptics will find the Ketogenic diet can help, as yet there is no confirmation that these are the same third. The Ketogenic Diet is one of the most extreme diets known and it is dangerous. Relying mainly on fats and some protein it is believed the brain is tricked into starvation mode using fats for fuel instead of glucose and that somehow this reduces seizure activity. Never to be embarked upon except under medical supervision this diet is now all over the internet as a way to lose weight. This beggars belief and undoubtedly will end up with people being hospitalised. The ONLY vegetables used are green leafy ones and carbohydrates are strictly limited. All vegetarians and vegans just took a huge breath I’m sure. If anyone has ever tried the Atkins diet, that is the lite version of the Ketogenic. The Atkins diet has far more variety in it and is safe to follow (especially if you are an O blood group). Many epileptics find that following the Ketogenic diet for approximately 3 years works wonders and they remain seizure free after reintroducing carbs.

So you vegans and vegetarians in your Ivory Towers of Superior Morality, stop judging. You don’t know what the person you are talking to is going through. If you can’t be bothered to have a conversation with them you will never know what steps they may be taking to improve conditions for animals. One day animal products could save the life of a loved one, so back off. There is no virtue in judgement and inflexibility….

When is £1 million the same as 11.5 days?

submit

It seems as though every day we are bombarded with huge sums of money being spoken about by banks and MPs, millions here, billions there. We’re getting numb to the numbers. When I was a kid (and I’m only 46 now, which is young according to some!!), a million pounds was unimaginable. Wow, with a sum like that you could buy the world!! Now all we need is about 10 minutes to work out where it would all go. The National Lottery often has several millions as first prize, but that pales into insignificance next to the Euromillions, which I remember once got up to £120 million. £120 million!! And yes I played, and no I didn’t win.

But how do we get our heads round these huge numbers, million, billion and trillion? Well I found a little trick that just might help with perspective. So let’s convert pounds to time, in fact let’s convert them to seconds. Brace yourself- this is gonna be a ride 🙂

£1 million = 11.5 days

£1 billion = 32 years

£1 trillion= 32,000 years

Seriously, it would take you 32 years to count out 1 billion £1 coins at a rate of 1 per second- no sleep, toilet breaks or days off sick though!!

Now contemplate this, the UK’s national debt currently stands (according to http://www.nationaldebtclock.co.uk/) at £4.8 trillion. To pay that back at £1 per second, without adding interest, would take 153,600 years, and George ‘cocaine addict and bald faced liar’ Osbourne reckons he’ll have it under control in 4 years. Let’s face it, no-one is going to get that under control any time soon. Even using the Government’s own figure of £1.6 trillion, it would still take 51,200 years to clear the debt at £1 per second.

Ready for some more fun?

If someone paid you £1 per second for a year, at the end of it you would have just over £31.5 million. Pretty cool huh? I’d be happy with that. But wait up, in the year 2012-13 the UK Government collected £621 billion in various taxes, spent just over £717 billion, and on top of that paid ‘financing costs’ to the tune of £79 billion to the Bank of England for doing a job that the Treasury could do for free. That’s a shortfall of £175 billion in just one year (5,600 years at £1 per second).

So riddle me these two things – if your debt were apparently insurmountable, would you keep paying someone else to do a job you could do yourself? And, if you were dependant on money collected to get you out of this debt, would you cut wages and so pay out more in benefits, or would you create jobs so more people working and set a minimum wage at a living level (say £20 per hour) and make the big companies dig into their profits – perhaps even tighten up the tax loopholes to stop tax avoidance? Talk to any classical economist and they’ll tell you subsidising a small business until it turns a sustainable profit results in greater tax income per head than these big multinationals, and without the cost of corporate benefits. Your Government is not working for you. They are not trying to protect your way of life. They are working to make the rich, richer. And it doesn’t matter which Party is in the driving seat, no matter the bluff and bravado, until these fundamental changes are made you will continue to be screwed over.

£1 million = 11.5 days

£1 billion = 32 years

£1 trillion = 32,000 years

Stop press! New front page headline reads – Shit Hits Fan for Canada’s Central Bank

On the 26th January, 2015, Canada’s bank and Government got shafted!

The Committee for Economic and Monetary Reform (COMER) won, yes WON!, their court case against the Government. It was quite simple really. The Bank of Canada has a legal (statutory) obligation to supply debt free money, at the request of the Government during times of need, to keep public services (roads, health, education, pensions, defence, transport, etc) properly funded. The Government has failed in it’s lawful (constitutional) obligation to make this request, and so now BOTH have been successfully sued!! Hang on, this sounds like it should be…. party time! But hold your horses- the Canadian Government has told the Press (the ever loving, totally unbiased, always looking for the story, mainstream media) NOT TO PRINT OR FOLLOW THE STORY!!

Luckily we have the internet and folk like Bill Still to keep us informed.

Ok, it’s only 5 minutes long but I know some won’t watch it so I’ll summarise….

The Bank of Canada was Nationalised (bought/ taken over by the Government, by default then it was owned by The People and used to generate funds to improve living conditions, infrastructure, etc for The People) in 1938. Millions of debt free Canadian dollars were pumped into the economy, taking them out of The Great Depression, improving living standards for all and failing spectacularly to cause problems with inflation that all neoliberal economists will try to scare you with should you ever dare mention debt free money around them. And so life went on and all was well in Canada until 1974.

In 1974 the Canadian Government decided to stop issuing this debt free currency and instead converted to the modern way of running the economy- borrowing money in exchange for ‘Bonds’. Bonds are effectively IOUs that are generally bought by Central Banks. I don’t know how it goes but I imagine it to be something along the lines of-

Gov’t- we need £x billion to fix the roads

Bank- ok, what will you offer us

Gov’t- here’s a bit of paper that says if we don’t pay you back you own (by default) all the National Parks.

Bank- yeah ok, sounds good. Here, tell you what, my brother-in-laws best friend has a company that resurfaces roads and my good friend has a company that supplies tar and stuff. Give them the contracts, give us the National Parks deal and we’ll give you the money ok?

Gov’t- do the people you are recommending live and pay taxes here? Where are their companies registered? Will they provide jobs for our people?

Bank- if you want the money, stop asking questions and sign the contract.

Gov’t- ok, thank you

Bank- now drop your trousers and bend over. I’m bored

Gov’t- with pleasure sir. Deeper, harder, please….

To get this whole Bonds thing in perspective, from 1867 to 1973, Canada had accumulated a National Debt of $18 billion. After just 3 years of Bonds swapping this had jumped to $588 billion. The current ‘official’ figures state a National Debt of $734 billion, with yearly interest costing the Taxpayers $18 billion!

Of course here in the UK we would love a National Debt of less than £800 billion. Ours currently stands at around £1.5 trillion with yearly interest payments in excess of £60 billion, but hey- we’ve been doing the ‘Bond Swap Dance’ a lot longer than they have.

Officially established in 1694, the Bank of England was Nationalised in 1946 and then granted operational independence in 1997. The history of this enigmatic institution is full of mystery and dastardly deeds, but it appears to run along the lines of international moneylenders funding either wars for royalty or usurpers of the Crown and using this leverage to allow them to introduce the practice of usury (lending money at interest), causing everyone in the nation to go broke. The notion of it being Nationalised is laughable. How does a Nationalised company have owners and shareholders? But don’t you go looking for who they are- that’s illegal. Yes, the identities of the investors in this cabalistic company are protected and you will be arrested for trying to find out who they are. Nationalised my arse!!! Whether there is a constitutional clause whereby our Government can request the issuance of debt free currency from this company is unclear, but we do know they allowed the Treasury to print the Bradbury Pound back in 1914 for about 5 years which got the UK out of a hole for a while.

So, the question is- why do we allow our Government to keep heaping this debt laden currency on us when they can print their own? Why do we keep listening to economists who are actually taught fuck all about the economy as it is but learn all about a theory of how it should work? If the Treasury can print interest free money tomorrow,and they can, that would mean no more taxes which immediately raises everyone’s standard of living. Surely this is a no brainer. For over 300 years the Bank of England has been taking our wealth, it used to be by stealth but now it’s daylight robbery. It’s time those greedy buggers got the boot….

So keep an eye on what happens in Canada, this could be the tipping point that knocks this house of cards down. Ask our own Press why they are not covering it. Ask your MP for their thoughts on the situation- that will make them squirm! But most importantly, get ready. Shit is gonna land. We The People will win. But it will probably be a bumpy ride.

Oooops, There Goes The Revolution

Ever get the feeling you’re being toyed with?

First there was UFO disclosure- well, kind of. Then the Bank of England admitted our notes were nothing more than IOUs. Then came Jimmy Savile, Elm Tree House and the rounding up and hounding of 1970’s DJs and children’s entertainers, with a few dead MPs thrown in for good measure, WW3 is on it’s way – and now there will be a debate in Parliament about the creation of money for the first time in 170 years!!!

Well fuck me, the whole lot is out in the open now! Yes I know there have been more ‘disclosures’ than that, but who can remember it all? Feel free to add extras in the comments if you wish.

Talk about cutting the feet off the revolution! Ok, so it means the Elites are worried, but look- MPs involved in paedophile rings and associated scandals, including murder, and where is the public reaction? Nowhere. Not a sausage. And are the Elite really worried? The general public are now so done down and apathetic that these revelations barely register. All they do is sacrifice some of their puppets (head of MI6 implicated in something or other now, who gives a crap anymore?) and it’s back to business as usual. But hey, just for the purposes of distraction and giving the illusion of opposition, here are Anonymous and Russell Brand.

Anonymous, the elite of computer hackers. 10 years ago Gary McKinnon hacked NASA with a dial up connection and exposed information regarding ‘off world officers’. That means (at the very least) there are military bases on other worlds! That’s an exposure!! What have Anonymous given us? Erm….. Oh I know, some dodgy YouTube videos telling us that they are going to do something. Wow. I am totally underwhelmed. Seriously, they haven’t leaked ONE official document about anything in all this time? Yay, real professionals. Real radicals. Anon advice to other hacktivists – don’t do it, leave it to us. All the while assuring Joe Public that something will be done and these tyrants will be brought to their knees and so we wait, and wait, and wait, and wait…..

As for Russell ‘Parklife’ Brand, well where do you start? His carefully evolving Messiah image? His advocating for – well, what is it? Anarchy or David Cameraman’s Big Society? No offence to Anarchists, but let’s be honest- RB is spouting anarchy for beginners, which is uneasily similar to the fabled Big Society is it not? Crowing about a moneyless society while dating a Rothschild, conflict of interests anyone? But that doesn’t matter any more because they’ve split up. The ‘Parklife’ nickname has been swiftly curtailed by him recording the song- in less than a week?!!!! Come on! Pull the other one it has bells on! How much media attention does he get for someone who is a threat to the Establishment? And please don’t go there with the ‘oh but he was already famous’ line, tell that to JFK, Martin Luther, Steve Biko, Pope John Paul I among countless others who were silenced even though they were permanently in the public eye. So what will Brand’s future be? Will he fade away to nothing? Will there be a failed attempt on his life by a lone gunman, securing his legacy as the People’s Messiah when he makes a full recovery? Or will he just continue to spout his ‘don’t vote’ line, thereby ensuring the 1% continue to get their way as they will keep voting. Cynical? Me? Well, maybe just a tad 😉

And what do we do now? For a start we need to build bridges between the different groups like Anarchists, Monetary Reform, Freemen, Conscious Evolutionists, Anti-Frackers, Political Reformers, Environmentalists, and so on. This is the time to start looking for common ground rather than endlessly debating which one is right. They are ALL right and they are ALL complementary and between them we pose a serious challenge to The Powers That Be. But while people stick to their own little groups, forever patting each others backs for their amazing insights and ideas we will get nowhere, and that is the biggest problem that I see. Whether someone has 800 or 8000 Facebook friends, whether their radio show is being listened to by 30 or 3000, if they are only communicating with people that already agree with them- what difference does it make? There are 65 MILLION of us in this country. A few thousand actively engaged ain’t worth a whole lot in comparison. So come on, let’s drop our own ‘activist talk’ (ironic when you consider that we berate the Gov’t for using language against us), let’s communicate in Plain English and please, let’s find agreement. The Movement, by the rules of Natural Law, is duty bound to be leaderless. It HAS to be. You CANNOT have a first among equals. You can, by agreement, elect people to positions of Care (eg, head of education, health, energy, social care, economy, local councils, etc) by respect of their having the skills and knowledge needed to hold and manage such a position for the greatest benefit of all. But on this precarious road to getting ‘there’ we are numerous and we are equal. If your ego can’t handle that, please take yourself out of the way and make room for those who can.

In the meantime, and in the light of WW3, may I suggest that you write down, print out, make hieroglyphs of, or whatever your preferred method of the written language may be, the top 10 principles of your chosen activist angle. Don’t store them electronically, one EMP blast and it’s lost forever.

A Revolution? What for….?

So there I was, awaiting the inspiration to write Rants and Rambles pt 2 but, it didn’t come. What did happen though were some very interesting conversations about the revolution and how life could be after it….

It seems that we need absolutely no plans in place post revolution, I guess because everyone will just somehow ‘know’ exactly how life is going to be. The people with no plan are often the very same people that talk about ‘the sheeple’. Let’s look at this shall we? We’re going to stage a revolution, take out the Government, sack all the MPs, lock up the bankers, leave the EU, ban pesticides – grow organic, ban fracking- free energy for all, there will be no money, no police, no authority and somehow, magically, ‘the sheeple’ will understand what’s happening and everything will be just fine. Cos after all, this is a revolution of consciousness isn’t it?

Yes, for people who are already awake!

You know, some have said ‘make the psychopaths live with poor families who have children growing up and going to school’. What difference is that supposed to make to a psychopath?!!! They’ll just resent living in a poor family’s home!

Honestly, some people don’t have a fucking clue….

Don’t get me wrong, these people have great hearts. They really do want the best for their fellow man, ok they’re often distracted and confused by the whole ‘Love n Light’ and ‘We Are All One’ stuff without seeing the psy-op behind it, but at least they do actively want change. If only they knew what they wanted and how to go about it.

don't keep calm

 

I would like to start a conversation. Let’s get organised, let’s get a plan together or -to be honest-  we stand no chance of pulling off any change at all.

Where oh where to begin? There are numerous changes that could be made so if you’ll indulge me a while I have a few ideas to get the conversation started…

Government and politics. This is such a big issue I believe it deserves a stand alone piece, preferably a collaboration, so if you have any thoughts about how to bring around positive change- let me know! Let’s get talking…

Money. Even if you do agree with being a moneyless society would you for just a few minutes really REALLY think about what would happen if overnight we got rid of money? It would be chaos! What, suddenly everyone is entitled to everything? So I can just move into that mansion and fill it with all the goods from the shop over there? Oh yeah, I can clear out Waitrose and Sainsburys, the farmers and suppliers wont mind not being rewarded for their goods will they? And I can finally get my kids and grandkids anything they want! Oh joy!!

And then imagine 65 million other people all thinking the same thing. Not such an idyllic picture after all huh?

Now yes, we could probably get there eventually but right now the moneyless society is a way off. So how do we bridge the gap? Well for a start we could rip up the contract currently held with the Bank of England, who have admitted our notes are nothing more than IOUs and we know they come with debt/ interest attached. The BofE is a private company, therefore it needs to make money for it’s owners and shareholders so it charges us for the privilege of printing our money. The Government has agreed that this is a good plan. I disagree. Money is meant to be a tool of exchange, but it should be worth what you are exchanging it for. In other words, it should be a credit note (credit as in when your bank account is IN credit, as opposed to the ironically named credit card) and instead of saying ‘I promise to pay the bearer…’ it could say ‘you have been paid…’ And yes the flow would still need to be controlled to avoid inflation, deflation, boom and bust, but how about the people controlling it are qualified, respected economists fully accountable to the general public instead of jumped up Eton idiots looking to line their own pockets?!! Should the currency stay under Government control? There are arguments for and against this and at the moment I am undecided though veering towards ‘no’. I’m not convinced that a nations currency should be a political football. However, for a Government to be effective it has to have access to money, so we also need to make sure the economists can’t use the issuance of currency as leverage. See what I mean? Not really a clear cut decision…

BUT, that one change- just that ONE change would allow for everything that follows-

The NHS to be fully funded and run as a service instead of a business. It is not meant to generate money, it is meant to keep people well so they can generate money! We could completely revamp the service too. Open it up to all forms of medicine. Herbalism, naturopathy, homoeopathy, chiropractors, osteopaths, cranial sacral therapists, massage and bodywork, energy healing (hands on, Reiki, etc), nutritional therapists, crystal healing, sound therapy, magnets, bio-resonance feedback, hypnotherapy- hey it could actually be a National Health Service instead of a national sick service. And you, yes YOU, get to choose how you want to be treated! Of course there would still be doctors, nurses, surgeons, specialists and the rest, but with this amount of support their workloads would be considerably lightened and they could actually have a life too!!

Public transport.The clue is in the name- public transport. Properly managed and maintained, free to use and, as far as possible and practical, available 24 hours a day. Again this is meant to be a service, not a cash generator. There will still be a need for taxis and minicabs, bus routes don’t cover every road and nor should they. We don’t have the roads for it and who living on a quiet little road wants buses blundering through every hour? But routes could be extended, new ones set up so that even the smallest, remotest village gets the service that suits the needs of the residents.

Fibre optic broadband (or whatever the best one is), to be laid out across the entire country. More on this later.

Education. Free for all. Teachers, Heads and educational psychologists to design and implement systems of education that take into account the differing ways in which people learn. Smaller classrooms. More schools. Specialised schools. This is stuff that has been known about for years and yet has never been taken seriously. Steiner schools have consistently above average results though formal education doesn’t start until children are 7 years old. Think we’re missing a trick or two there? Most of us remember having subjects we were good at, ones we enjoyed, and often at least one we didn’t like. Surely we should be encouraging the talents shown, not trying to squeeze everyone into the same mould. Oh and how about we teach children about the changes that they will go through BEFORE it happens. Whole generations of teenagers fully aware of what is going on inside their brains and bodies and the techniques that can be used to help them cope with it- wouldn’t that be amazing? Everyone aware of how their bodies work and the best way to look after themselves. REAL education of REAL benefit to all and teachers nurturing ALL talents. Who could ask for more?
And no more businesses funding universities! How can there be any objective study done if the centre of learning is dependent on successful, often biased, outcomes for an outside interest?

A nation of critical thinkers are highly unlikely to be manipulated into useless consumerism and illogical, unnecessary wars

manipulating

 

Care. I can only comment one one aspect of care, that of people with physical disabilities with severe learning difficulties, because I am the mother of someone with this level of need. It really hacks me off when people with no understanding or experience tell me how my son should be cared for. How dare some jumped up do-gooder tell me that ‘the disabled should have a city of their own to live in’!! Well ok, so how about we have all people with blue eyes living in the South, brown eyed folk can go North and those with green eyes to the Isle of Wight? Surely if everyone has the same eye colour they’ll get along wont they? This is the level of ignorance that the disabled face every day. Have you got any idea of the variety of disability? Have you realised that no matter the level of disability our family members have feelings, hopes, wishes and dreams too. They have personal likes and dislikes. They get just as pissed off about things as you do, though what they get pissed about could be completely different and to YOU may seem unimportant, but don’t we ALL have differing priorities?
But anyway, how disabled would someone need to be to go this city? Deaf? Blind? Schizophrenic? Depressed? An amputee? Down’s Syndrome? Epilepsy? Paralysed in one leg? Paralysed from the waist down? Autistic? High functioning Aspergers? Mild learning difficulties? Just where in a deteriorating illness, like Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease, cancer, arthritis, etc does disability start? What about people with fatigue syndromes- are they disabled?
Or is it just the ones that make you feel uncomfortable….?
And this is a good one- ‘people with disabilities should contribute to society’. Again, looking at the levels of disability, this is a perfectly reasonable expectation for a majority of the disabled population. But there are a minority who are unlikely to be able to contribute in a direct, meaningful way, however they do provide for jobs! Carers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, visual impairment teachers, special needs teachers, educational psychologists, nurses, doctors, neurologists, specialists of all kinds, orthotics designers and makers, wheelchairs designers and makers- and that’s the short list! Contribute to society? Don’t they do enough already?!!! Ffs, for some of these people just getting through the day is an achievement, so in the politest possible way- you can shove your contribution where the sun don’t shine!

Farming and food production. Did you know that evil tyrant Gadaffi used to give people who wanted to farm- a home, the land, equipment, seeds, livestock and anything else they needed PLUS a years money up front? That’s it. Just given to them. And they had a year to make a success of it. If we made it that easy we just might have more people actually wanting to farm. Smaller farms, re-introduce crop rotation, smaller herds being fed real food with enough land to roam and graze on. We could also explore vertical farming for small scale mass production and hydroponics for foods that don’t grow so well in our climate. Scientists could determine if GM foods can be made safe for consumption, with high levels of bio-available vitamins, and they could be organically farmed. GM doesn’t have to mean deadly and science should be allowed to explore all options open to us.
We could be doing this NOW but for the Bank of England!!
We could charge a tax convenience food companies that use all kinds of additives, colourings and preservatives that are known to be harmful to health, and subsidise the, often smaller, companies that offer healthier alternatives. Watch how quickly food quality would improve! And finally, finally, science could look at how different foods encourage health in different people (blood groups alone demand different diets) and we can drop all of these stupid food ‘fads’ that have done little more than to wreck people’s health and cause the yo-yo of weight gain/loss.

Earlier I said fibre optic broadband to be rolled out across the country, and it should be. Access to it should also be free, but I see so much more than that. I am fed up that my 5yr old laptop is running slow, overheating, can no longer be repaired cheaply (it’s too old!) and is running a system that has inbuilt backdoors for our secret spy services to use. Jacques Fresc had some good ideas in ‘The Venus Project’. Why can’t our pcs, laptops, mobiles, etc be bug free? Why can’t they have interchangeable parts so repairs are no problem? We have the designers, technicians and engineers to do this. We have the computer programmers, analysts, web designers, etc that can give us safe, stable, spyfree access to the internet.
This could be extended to cover all our household machinery- cars, motorbikes, washing machines, tumble driers, ovens, televisions, etc, and the insurance that we currently pay for breakdown cover could be used to have items maintained every 6 to 12 months dependent on need and use, so that problems can be detected before breakdowns!

Don’t know if any of you have spotted this yet, but in this brave new world the unemployment figures are dropping very quickly…

Energy/fuel. There are so many alternatives on offer, take your pick! But everyone is always shouting about ‘free’ energy. Define ‘free’. No matter what system is finally used it’s never going to be free. Think about it- if we roll out solar panels across every roof in the land to feed into the national grid, we still need people running the national grid and they will need to be paid. The panels have a 20yr lifetime and will need to be replaced. Again there is a cost involved. Perhaps an OverUnity device is created and installed in every house- it still needs to be maintained.
You have to accept that fuel will never be free (unless we do actually make it to a moneyless society), but so what if costs are minimal? Right now I’d be happy to ‘only’ pay £40 a month towards maintenance instead of the £130 I currently pay to cover gas and electric.
We put out the challenge to the scientists and the inventors to find the best way of harnessing the energies around us, with an amount of money offered to help them get started and a place in history for the winning design

And there is my contribution to this conversation. I sincerely hope that people do start talking. It’s time to reach out to the ‘sheeple’ and show them how life could be- cos scaring them with how life is hasn’t worked so far has it? But please, there has to be something that the whole movement can agree on or we’ll be picked off like flies.

In closing I would like to say that yes I’ve made some barbed comments, and maybe some reading this have recognised some of their own thoughts and points of view, but if anything I’ve said has caused you to wonder am I talking about YOU- then the answer is no. I chat to many people and you’d be surprised how similar most people’s thoughts are. Having said that, I love this particular card and this seems the appropriate place to put it…

Lace that bitch

Rants and Rambles pt1

I’ve heard sooo much crap just lately it’s quite mind boggling!!
Don’t use the big supermarkets! Don’t eat at McD’s! Don’t pay your bills! Step out of the system! Don’t vote! Anti Zion must mean you’re pro Islam! We don’t need money! We don’t need Governments! It’s all an Illusion! Hang the Illuminati! The Law of Attraction! It’s not the problem, it’s your reaction to it! Love will heal the world! Focus on the good and the bad will fade away!

On and on and on and on….

Oh but don’t worry cos if it all goes down the crapper the aliens will come and sort it out!

Ffs! Really?!!!

So let’s look at some of these points shall we?

Don’t use the big supermarkets, support your local farmers.
Brilliant! Couldn’t agree more. IF you can afford it. And IF there is a local farmer you can buy from. But not every community has this, however most have a Tesco/ Sainsburys/ Morrison’s, etc nearby.
Now we all know that these big supermarkets have turned former communities into wastelands. Destroyed local markets, ruined local economies, caused soaring unemployment figures and probably now use zero hours contracts, but guess what – it’s done now, and no amount of bitching and moaning is going to turn the clock back.
You want to make a difference? Open a co-op in a derelict town. BE the difference you’re always banging on about, but don’t tell me how I should shop.

do no harm

Don’t pay your bills.
Wow what a considerate human you are! Come on, think it through. Do you really think that is going to ‘stick it to the man’? Seriously?
What your actions will actually do is drive down wages as companies have to recoup their losses. Do you honestly believe that the CEOs will reach into their own pockets to make up for deficits? Do you think they will take a drop in their own wages?
What’s the point shouting about psychopaths if you don’t understand how they ‘tick’?! You’re not ‘sticking the man’ with anything by not paying- but you will cause others to lose jobs as the company has to resize. Congratulations! You just made everything worse.

Don’t eat at McDs.
Damn good advice if you value your health, however if you think your stance will make any difference to the money grabbers at the top, then I must admit I find your naivety endearing.
Ever heard of rebranding? Repackaging? Ok, so McDs fails, yay! Health becomes important again! Ooooo look, a new food place. Organic burgers and fries! Fantastic!! Now it might be 5 times the price of McDs, but it’s organic. Fast food that’s good for you. Happy happy, smiling faces. Now look at the names of the CEOs. Hang on, aren’t they the ones that used to…….

Step out of the system.
The New World Order (which is actually just the Old World Order but out and proud) salutes you. Once you step OUT of the system you can no longer effect any change IN it.
Growing your own food is a wonderful idea if you have the land and storage space needed to be self sufficient all year round. But please explain to me how a couple in a flat on the 7th floor raising 2 children and working 2/3 part time jobs each are meant to find the land or the time to do this? The waiting list for allotments in Inner Cities is up to roughly 4yrs. Hmmmm, can’t quite see the sweeping changes coming this way, and who knows what a state we’ll be in after 4 more years.
Then there’s health. For sure eating clean, naturally grown food is going to make the biggest difference to your health, and yes there are a plethora of herbal remedies growing in our hedgerows and wastelands (not to mention the ‘weeds’ multiplying in your gardens and balconies) that can heal all kinds of illnesses but when you’ve got a broken bone or appendicitis it’s not a herbalist you’ll be wanting! But once you opt out, that’s it pal- you are out! No NHS number, no treatment unless you’ve got a few thousand stashed in your tent/ tepee somewhere.
And that’s just scratching the surface of opting out. Small wonder it’s always the young, healthy, single people that are the most vocal about this. Knobheads.

Don’t vote
Ah who does anymore?
I’ll tell you who does – the twats that are running the country and ruining our lives!! And guess what? They will continue to do so while every other bugger just sits back and moans about what’s happening.
Fucking vote! But DON’T vote for one of the big parties. USE your vote to make a difference. If everyone that bitched and moaned had voted for No2EU at the last European election, guess who would’ve won?
How about at the next General Election voting for the National Health Action party? That would really piss off the Tories, and Labour!
Our vote is the last piece of the democratic process we have left. It can still be powerful. So let’s use it

apathy

Anti Zion = pro Islam
No you numbskull, being anti Zion makes me pro humanity! I also didn’t agree with the wars in Argentina, Iraq, Afghanistan. Vietnam was before my time but I wouldn’t have supported it. Getting the picture now? I don’t agree with the sanctions against Libya, Iran, or any other country. And standing off to Russia? Oh my fucking god, what a joke!
But while we’re here- wtf is this all about? The trouble in Palestine/Israel has been going on for almost 60 years. Why has it become fashionable to talk about it now?
There is the big question….
Something has been planned. Something is going on. Shit is gonna land somewhere.
Almost 100 years ago Albert Pike predicted WW3 would begin between the Arabs and the Jews. Now, everyday, the public are being whipped into a frenzy of hate against Israel (though it should only be Zionists – which, by the way, includes Cameron and Milliband, among others), but where is the Arab world? Where have they been for the last 60 years?
When other Arab countries get involved then it is probably only a matter of time until war proper breaks out. Israel is armed to the teeth, plus has the backing of the USA, and apparently most of Europe, however much the general public disagrees (democracy huh?!).
Watch carefully. Get some supplies in.
