  • Scottish SVR tax - an abuse of Opposition power in Holyrood While demonstrations and riots take place in London, Leeds, Manchester and Glasgow against Labour's destruction of the UK economy, Nick Clegg's broken LibDem promises to the electorate and students specifically - and the damaging and ill-conceived Tory cuts, aided and abetted by their tame LibDem partners, the tame Scottish representative of the three London-based parties nonetheless have the effrontery to attack the Scottish SNP government on a non-issue - the totally irrelevant SVR tax, a tax that has never been used, never will be used, and has been ignored by all Scottish parties. Astonishingly - and contemptibly - they are supported by the two Scottish Green MSPs in their attack on an honest man of high integrity, John Swinney, the Scottish Government Finance Minister. While young people demonstrate and riot in cities across the UK against their Westminster parties, Scottish Labour, Tories and Liberal Democrats whip up wholly synthetic anger and indignation, posturing and shouting in Holyrood. Fortunately, the Scottish people have more sense than to pay any attention to this self-serving nonsense. They know who sent their sons to die in foreign wars, are still sending them to die, and who wrecked the economy and blighted their futures - Labour. And they know who broke their promises and got elected on a false prospectus - the Liberal Democrats. They know who is directing a programme of draconian cuts against the poor and vulnerable and who is attacking their public ...
  • GHOST3movMOVIE GHOST SCREAM Sigh... I was debating whether or not to post this story, but Sylvia Browne, and James Van Praagh, and John Edwards write stories like this all the time. And time has passed. In October 2005, one afternoon, I was having an afternoon nap. I was staying in my hotel. I have not disclosed my address on this blog yet. None of you know where I live. Anyhow, I was sleeping and astral projecting as the dream had a heavy, syrruppy vivid feeling more than a usual dream, as astral projections usually have and I recognized the hotel I was staying in as I was returning home to my hotel. Walking up the stairs. Illustration: From my journal which includes dream journal. Sylvia Browne wrote, "It goes without saying that it is much easier to see ghosts when you are astral projecting because you are on the same vibrational frequency as them." I was walking up the stairs in my astral projected self. The stairs were in mirror image everything that was usually right was left including the stairwell. I was on the landing of the stairwell looking down, and I saw a young, 16 year old Native female. She was wearing a black hoody sweatshirt. I was looking down at her as her arms were folded on her knees as she sat on the step. I got a flurry of feelings from her, scared, proud, confused, angry, lost. On the landing I saw that Native girl again, but just before I saw her, I had a fleeting, exquisite bittersweet vision of some funeral flowers at the head of a casket at a funeral, it was ...
  • Re: Re: Gullible is not in the Dictionary Just my theory on her attitude and demeanor. Uh, for the comment that wondered what "belittled meant" : to regard or portray as less impressive or important than appearances indicate; depreciate; disparage. To represent or speak of as contemptibly small or unimportant; disparage: a person who belittled our efforts to do the job right. To cause to seem less than another or little I apologize for my almost seemingly drugged behavior! It was late at night/morning.

  • VOTE REPUBLICAN! For Financial Chains You Can Believe In! Tax cuts, cheating, lying, fear mongering, racism, libel, slander and election fraud are all that Republicans have to draw on to install another Republican elitist to rob from people who work for a living and give hand outs for people who cheat for a living. Republicans are okay with wealth redistribution as long as all those awful working poor don't get it! Tax dollars can trickle up but never down! If working American's were to sit at our Nation's proverbial kitchen table to go over America's budget we would see that lowering taxes for people who don't need it especially during a time of war hasn't really balanced our budget or strengthened our nation. One thing is for sure, Republicans do NOT believe in the tax and spend philosophy they so contemptibly try to hang on Democrats. Not even a little ***y tiny bit! They have pioneered a great revolutionary new fiscal strategy- borrow and spend. That's right, borrow and spend. Leave it for our kids to clean up our financial puke. *** 'em! Get more credit from China and send the bill to our kids. Republicans spend money they don't have to pay for wars we don't need- and engage in elaborate schemes to secure more credit than tax payers can afford. Then when the *** hits the fan they point fingers and blame the poor. The poor and democrats are the reason for a of our financial ills. VOTE REPUBLICAN! For Financial Chains You Can Believe In!
  • Lucky {chapter 2} "Crap!" I yelled out loud, it's not like anyone could hear me. And rapidly switched my light jog for an all-out run. "...Forks!..." I spat contemptibly towards no one in particular. Finally I reached my front door and was fumbling for my key when all of a sudden I feel a cold hand on my shoulder. My instinct kicked in and I swiftly turned around ready to punch the mystery person in the groin. But as soon as my head turned around I realized it was my best friend Katya. "*** girl you scared the crap outta me!" I yelled at her almost furious. "Sorry, sorry, sorry Ally!" she responded, "I didn't think you'd go all kung-fu ninja on me." She burst out laughing after. "Ha, ha Katya. You're hysterical." I replied bitterly. "So you went running, eh?" she asked trying to muffle a laugh that I knew was coming out very soon. Like now. "Yeah, why's that so hard to believe, huh? Come here you little punk!" with that I tackled her and was tickling her harder than she knew how to laugh. "STOP ALI PLEASE!" She pleaded. I had no mercy. "As soon as you stop making fun of me for going to my spot!" I answered her. "Okay, okay fine. But one day I want to go to this place..." she began walking towards the kitchen to raid the fridge, like always. "II-...umm...listen, you know how I-" but she cut me off "I know I know, I get it. It's your place to think and its sacred." This time she was completely serious. "Thanks K, you're the best." I hugged her more out of practice than anything else. I felt ...
  • 2nd posting since the comment was too long, and would not fit The piece below summarizes quite well what could and should happen "in time" as in "it is time": Karen Selick: The case for milk in the raw..... Last month, Ontario farmer Michael Schmidt was sentenced to pay $55000 for contempt of court. He had persisted in delivering unpasteurized milk to the members of his cow-sharing program, contrary to a court order. He goes to trial today on his main charges of violating the Milk Act and related legislation. What's a person to do when the laws themselves are contemptible, and the people who hold the power to change them are behaving contemptibly? Twenty years ago, Toronto furrier Paul Magder answered that question this way: You continue doing what you believe is right until the lawmakers finally smarten up. Magder racked up huge contempt fines merely by opening his store on Sundays. But the province eventually yielded to public pressure and legalized Sunday shopping. The sky didn't fall, and today Ontarians take Sunday shopping for granted. I see Michael Schmidt as the Paul Magder of this era -- the unsung hero who will make it possible for us, 20 years hence, to say, "Was it not always thus?" I've spent an inordinate amount of time reading up on raw milk to avoid embarrassing myself in case it was simply a harebrained idea. Having done so, I'm convinced that Schmidt is right and the lawmakers are wrong. In a nutshell, the position in favour of raw milk is this: Pasteurization is not necessary to ensure milk safety. While it may ...
  • Campaign Launch - O'Neil Brooke for Ottawa city council. PUBLIC NOTICE On March 17th 2010 ONeil Brooke became candidate for Ottawa City Council, Ward 11. It is very doubtful that you will hear much about this candidate from the mainstream media. The mainstream media is dominated by craven prostitutes. You will recognize the prostitutes, they are the ones that tell lies for money. Craven means lacking the least bit of courage, contemptibly and fainthearted according to and applicable because our media consistently fail to expose the liars. The most important issue for us, is to stop being poisoned. The City of Ottawa is medicating us with fluoride. Fluoride has a whole host of very serious side effects. If you drink too much water you can get a toxic dosage of this drug. Thats why we see dental fluorosis in our kids. By putting it in the water we cant regulate the dosage. Dental fluorosis is NOT just a cosmetic problem. Lets stop spending our tax dollars on a drug that rots our teeth and bones, and dumbs us down. Find the label craven prostitute a little harsh? Ok, honestly answer these questions and see if the shoe fits. How was building 7, 47 stories of concrete and steel, imploded in 6.5 seconds on September 11th 2001? We are not interested in any of your wild conspiracy theories, give us the facts! How did that building fall so fast? What caused the molten pools of steel? Why did it take months to put out the fires at ground zero? How was all that concrete reduced to the consistency of talcum powder that blew away on ...
  • 10. Common Sense The American Revolution (HIST 116) This lecture focuses on the best-selling pamphlet of the American Revolution: Thomas Paine's Common Sense, discussing Paine's life and the events that led him to write his pamphlet. Published in January of 1776, it condemned monarchy as a bad form of government, and urged the colonies to declare independence and establish their own form of republican government. Its incendiary language and simple format made it popular throughout the colonies, helping to radicalize many Americans and pushing them to seriously consider the idea of declaring independence from Britain. Complete course materials are available at the Open Yale Courses website: open.yale.edu This course was recorded in Spring 2010.
  • Jobs for rich, privileged public schools boys- Where? - in the Labour Party Last year, I wrote about the UK Establishment versus Scotland's independence and also about the insidious infiltration of UK democracy at the highest level by a privileged elite -public school (Oxbridge, Fettes, Roedean etc.) PPE degree holders, often from rich, privileged, and sometimes politically dynastic backgrounds - using their connections and their PPE degrees as a Passport to the Establishment. (Andrew Neil has now caught up with me in his recent documentary Posh and Posher on BBC television.) After various indignant outbursts from PPE degree graduates and undergraduates, I made it clear that I had nothing against the degree itself - indeed, if I had gone to university it would possibly have been my degree of choice, since it offers three subjects that are essential to a functioning democracy, politics, philosophy and economics - but only to its use, especially by well-connected public school graduates as a direct entry, fast track route to the highest jobs in politics and government, and in the process, without any direct exposure to the real life of the nation, effectively marginalising or excluding from high office people from less privileged backgrounds. In the process, a narrow, self-sustaining elite that is profoundly undemocratic and unrepresentative of the people is created,with a shared view of life and society that totally fails to understand the needs of the people and is inimical to their interests.

  • Tory Plan to destroy the NHS in England - Scots beware of Labour! The Lansley Plan launched by David Cameron today will be the beginning of the end for the NHS if it goes ahead. Some of Cameron's pals are already gearing up to profit from it. Private Eye reports that Great West Commissioning Consortium - you couldn't make it up! - a pathfinder consortium with 57 GP practices based in Hounslow, set up by Andrew Lansley, Health Minister, has signed up UnitedHealth to help reduce the number of patients referred for hospital treatment by putting them through a facilitation service to be vetted by UnitedHealth staff. UnitedHealth website Private Eye reports that Simon Stevens, Executive Vice President in the US - and make no mistake, this global company's roots are American - is a former health adviser to Tony Blair, a former Labour PM and multi-millionaire with the blood of hundreds of thousands on his hands, due to appear before the Chilcot Inquiry for the second time on Friday to answer questions about alleged discrepancies about his previous testimony to Chilcot. Simon Stevens Now, while Scots may deplore what is about to happen to our English cousins, they may think that we are safe, since health is a devolved matter, and is currently in the safe, ethical hands of Nicola Sturgeon, Deputy First Minister of Scotland and the SNP Government under Alex Salmond. But would it be safe under a Labour administration in Holyrood, compliant tools of London-based Labour, once the big money started to flow into private healthcare, the lobbyists got ...
  • Bonhoeffer: Agent of Grace - Who Am I? A scene from movie 'Bonhoeffer: Agent of Grace', depicting Bonhoeffer's poem written in prison "Who am I" Who am I? They often tell me I stepped from my cells confinement Calmly, cheerfully, firmly, Like a squire from his country-house. Who am I? They often tell me I used to speak to my warders Freely and friendly and clearly, As though it were mine to command. Who am I? They also tell me I bore the days of misfortune Equally, smilingly, proudly, Like one accustomed to win. Am I then really all that which other men tell of? Or am I only what I myself know of myself? Restless and longing and sick, like a bird in a cage, Struggling for breath, as though hands were compressing my throat, Yearning for colors, for flowers, for the voices of birds, Thirsting for words of kindness, for neighborliness, Tossing in expectation of great events, Powerlessly trembling for friends at an infinite distance, Weary and empty at praying, at thinking, at making, Faint, and ready to say farewell to it all? Who am I? This or the other? Am I one person today and tomorrow another? Am I both at once? A hypocrite before others, And before myself a contemptibly woebegone weakling? Or is something within me still like a beaten army, Fleeing in disorder from victory already achieved? Who am I? They mock me, these lonely questions of mine. Whoever I am, Thou knowest, O God, I am Thine!
  • HAM SANDWICH 3/12/2006 PRESENTED BY PAULINE FREEMAN As with most introductions, we'll start with the name. Say hello to Ham Sandwich. No it doesnt stand for anything; no they don't care if you dont like it, so far as it has helped as much as it has hindered them. Sure it gets them more attention than their glorious collection of pop rock ballads, but in a town where talk is cheap, this moniker is a Fendi handbag. It also allowed them to stick it to that glorified hearing aid Bono who has previously suggested that they would be the biggest band in Ireland by now if they changed their name. Quite true Mr. Vox, but as you have failed to grasp, despite your diminutive form, size isn't everything, talent is. And Ham Sandwich have lashings of it. Contemptibly lumped in with The Chalets in a music scene unaccustomed to change, Ham Sandwich have distinguished between style and content, and while they look the part, they never forget that its the music that has them here in the first place. With Niamh Farrells astute presence and honeyed vocals glazing front man Podge McNamees gruff tone and hammy stage manner, the group never fail to disappoint, be it with their lyrics, so melancholic they make for such sweet wallow, or their melodies. Witness Sad Songs a master class in how to kick a song back in where lesser bands would have let it fade out, turning the what would otherwise been a standard rock track on its head Or its b-side, the hurtling Click, Click, BOOM! which comes on ...
