U.N.friendly forces

When I was much younger I used to think that the idea behind the U.N was brilliant. They were like a kind of “world police”, zipping about in white APCs righting wrongs and protecting the weak and innocent.
These many years later I can clearly see it for exactly what it is. A kind of world police zipping about in white APCs stomping out dissent for a single world government and raping the weak and innocent.
If you read the article in full you'll love the part at the end where a spokesman for the U.N's Department of Peacekeeping Operations in New York says "The abuse of children by those who are sent to help is a significant and painful issue and one that we have begun to address. We are doing everything we can to train and monitor our civilian staff."(Emphasis added.)
Train and monitor? For real? These guys ARE the monitors, aren't they? As for training... I don't think that you can plead ignorance of the law when you get caught raping a six year old girl.
So, why is it that the blue helmet men can't seem to keep their peckers in their pants around the kiddies? I asked that question of myself and determined that it would be worthwhile finding out how one becomes a U.N Peacekeeper. Well, it seems that you have to be a soldier serving in the army of a U.N signatory nation. Then, when the U.N assembles a peacekeeping force you volunteer (or get volunteered) for a spot in said peacekeeping force. Seems simple enough. So what's with all the pedophiles?
This is where we must follow the path of common sense.
Imagine for a moment that you're a commander in your nation's military and a call comes in from the minister for defence.
“The U.N is assembling a peacekeeping force to mill around the Mudhole province of Whereverstan.” he says.
“Have fifty soldiers fitted for blue berets by the end of the week.”
You, the Commander, now have some options.
Ask for volunteers? Fat chance. Why would a soldier leave his buddies and his homeland to potter around Whereverstan in a big ,white, six wheeled bullet magnet with nobody but a bunch of strangers to have his back? Not bloody likely.
Would you pick out the best and brightest to represent your country in the aforementioned Mudhole province, where they'll waste their extensive training by performing nought more than guard duties and aid distribution? No, I didn't think so...
That leaves but one option. You, the commander, take this golden opportunity to rid yourself of every deadbeat, dropkick and wing-nut in your force. You slap that big rubber stamp down. 
“Assigned to U.N Whereverstan PKF.”
So, now the U.N has a peacekeeping force cobbled together from the worst of the worst. Incompetants, malcontents and (most unfortunately of all) scumbags.
Does the rape factor start to make sense now?
Another article linked here gives a shortlist of some of the U.N's extracurricular activities, so the next time you see a  report about a U.N. peacekeeper being killed or wounded, remember that it might not be insurgents to blame.
It could just be a pissed off dad or two...

In the news today.

Well, it would be laughable if it weren't so galling. Our beloved gun control laws have once again been shown to be largely pointless as a couple of outlawbikers are found with tasers.
The authorities, we're expected to believe, are capable of rounding up formerly unregistered firearms that were a dime dozen in their day, yet they can't seem to keep less than lethal weapons from the hands of criminals despite the fact that they were NEVER legal to own or import IN THE FIRST PLACE.
Fact is, the only thing that holds back the black market for firearms is a lack of demand. Anyone who wants them already has them or knows where they can be gotten. I know some folks who occasionally wander on the wrong side of the track, and they tell me that black market firearms are often cheaper than their legal counterparts. I guess when you can't burden an industry with enough paperwork to sink an aircraft carrier then the costs stay low.

The Craig Thompson saga has been going on for a long, long, loooong time now, and I think it's just great! Why on earth would I think that? Well, because it's a constant reminder of what a bunch of crooked bastards our labour union thugs (and politicians in general) are.
But isn't he just one bad apple amongst a bunch of shiny, delicious apples, you say?
Lets wonder for a moment how you'd manage to spend hundreds of thousands of union dollars on prostitutes and high living without setting off a few alarm bells along the way.
Lets then consider the more likely scenario, which is that this kind of behaviour is completely commonplace.
Then, skip up the chain of command and ask “if this guy was so openly raping the system then is it possible in the slightest that those pulling his stings were not somehow complicit?”
The commonsense answer is “of course not”.
This is the world these people live in. They have no accountability and no remorse. To them you are a meaningless nobody that exists to be fleeced for their benefit. The only code they know is the code of silence, and that code exists on both sides of the parliament floor. Only when complainants cannot be bribed, threatened, murdered (without rebuke) or otherwise silenced are the actions of the world's Craig Thompsons brought to light. Typically Craig would be generously compensated (under the table of course) to plead guilty to couple of minor charges before disappearing to a mansion in some tropical paradise to live out his days, however Mr Thompson seems to think he can have his cake and eat it too. His arrogance is such that he believes that this will all blow over and in time he'll be able to return to the local brothel, union members dues in hand, and go back to business as usual.
It's a good thing too...
He's on track to serve as a reminder to us for many more years of what a desperately rotten and rancid system we are governed by.

Bulls#!t Phrase Of The Week:

This week's BS phrase is Most Vulnerable.

 This term is all the rage these days. It's typically presented to the effect of “we're providing blah blah blah for thousands of our most vulnerable”.
Of course, it doesn't sound nearly as good when you say we're providing blah blah blah for thousands of our most lazy and unmotivated citizens. The term itself plays into the the idea that not having a lot of money makes you inherently “vulnerable”. I'd like to put that idea by some of the war veterans I've known. They were routinely dirt poor but they were far from what I would call vulnerable.
The term, you'll find, starts to make a lot more sense when used thusly:
“We're providing blah blah blah to thousands of our most vulnerable electorates.”
Once again, you know this is a bogus term because nobody uses it in casual conversation. So spare a thought for all of those “vulnerable” people who spend all day at home watching cable television while chain smoking and drinking beer. They're vulnerable to heart disease perhaps, but not much else.

Back, like a heart attack!

I'm back, after a long hiatus. I won't bore you with the details. I'll bore you with the content of this blog instead. It's really more for me than anyone else. It helps me vent and what-not. So without further adieu here are my observations on the following:

The riots and killings in the Middle East over a stupid, basement budget movie (stupid but lawful) are yet another reminder of why it's great to not be living in the Middle East. As usual a procession of spineless western politicians are falling over themselves to offer grovelling apologies for our tragic mis-use of this silly “freedom of expression” nonsense we so foolishly cling to.
Hats off though to the rioters in Libya, who supposedly turned up with heavy weapons at the secret location of a U.S. diplomat on the auspicious date of 9/11 (or 11/9 for Australians) in order to "protest" the aforementioned movie. That's some A-Grade "rioting" there. What's that, you say? A planned attack? Nonsense. Clearly it's that anti-Islamic film that's to blame. You should probably go back to watching American Idol, or anything else that distracts you suitably from world events... 

We in the west are ridiculed with good cause.

Evidently the big-shots at the NWO EU have smartened up and lifted their game. They learned the hard way in Greece that dangling bailout funds in front of a bankrupt country while making them do a humiliating song and dance was not endearing in the slightest. This time around they've obviously convinced the Spanish parliament to legislate austerity measures before the terms of the bailout are officially negotiated. This way they'll look less like vultures and more like benevolent monetary saints. Yep, a turd pie is still a turd pie, but it definitely tastes better with a little sugar on it.

Well, China's been doing some sabre rattling over a few worthless islands lately. Why now? Well, it's like a gang member hitting on a rival gang member's sister. Am I confusing you? China is the gang member, Japan is the sister and America is the rival gang member. Since Japan and America have iron clad mutual aid agreements China knows America will either have to respond in some way or lose face within the international community. Hand it to the Chinese. They're playing chess while everyone else is playing checkers.

I've decided to add a regular feature in an attempt to deprogram myself and others. Journalists and politicians constantly bombard us with words and phrases that are designed to elicit a certain response regardless of the context. For example: “Today we have made outstanding progress in the war on poverty. This new initiative will provide vital aid to thousands of our nation's most vulnerable people.” Written honestly this would read: “Today we have legislated additional taxpayer/debt funded money to be given to people who are under a certain income bracket.” It is imperative that we all learn to filter out this ingrained propaganda when read and hear about world events. So, without further adieu I give you the;

Bulls#!t Phrase Of The Week:

This week's BS phrase is Ethnic Cleansing.

This is a phrase used in the media by scripted mainstream journalists because they want to report on cases of mass murder without offending the delicate sensibilities of their pantywaist viewers/listeners. This is an especially useful word for the U.N. because it means they don't have to feel too bad about failing to intervene in cases of genocide where the unfortunate victims have no wealth to bargain with. 
European Jews?
African Tutsis? 
Ethnic cleansing. 
See how it works? After all. “Cleansing” is a good thing. Right? It infers that the cleaners are making the world a better place, regardless of the context the word is used in.
It's easy to pick this term as being bulls#!t because nobody outside of the media realm actually uses it. They use more appropriate terms like mass killings, mass murder, etc.
So, when some hollow media puppet writes a column and uses the term “ethnic cleansing”, leave them a comment asking them to harden up and call a thing what it is. 
Mass murder. 
It's not rocket science.

In the news today.

I managed to get a fantastic job which accounts for my not having posted anything lately. Regardless, I'm now past the point of being mentally exhausted at the end of each day so it follows that I'll take another crack at posting content regularly, even if the sum total of my viewers would presently fit neatly into a phone booth.

Well it seems that the art of butchering a perfectly fine book for the purposes to adapting it to film goes at least as far back as 1962. I'm watching Day Of The Triffids and apparently they weren't keen to credit the Commies with being able to genetically engineer something as awesome as a ten foot tall man eating plant. The plants instead seem to have come down with the meteors that blinded everyone. They then grew to full size more or less instantaneously. 
Bah! Wyndham lived seven years after the release of the film. I specifically checked because I thought there was a strong probability he would have terminated himself the day it was released...

Well, I guess the big news today is that Qantas has grounded all it's flights in response to union action. It's difficult to explain just how big a deal this is. I mean, important people are going to have to fly budget airlines. The horror! It's also difficult to type Qantas without using a "u". But seriously, this is a major taste of things to come. Unions refusing to budge and CEOs unable or unwilling to relent. The end result is that products and services disappear, in this case overnight. Take nothing for granted!

In other news, it seems the colonies aren't as obedient as they used to be. How we'll ever manage without another useless Commonwealth mouthpiece is beyond me.

The refugee crisis hits home again with another suicide in detention. It doesn't matter where you stand on the refugee issue, but the fact is that when we treat them like animals for several years and then release them into suburbia we have created the perfect recipe for domestic terrorism. Then again, maybe that's the point.

I've probably already redflagged myself a dozen times so I wont restrain myself. This is why you never give up your right to bear arms. Protesting peacefully when your government is responding with tanks and small arms fire is a fool's errand. We arm ourselves against all threats, foreign AND domestic! REMEMBER. The benevolent government that disarms you for the safety of society may be a distant memory when the tyrant of the day consigns you and your family to slavery or execution.

Hope you're all getting you beans, bullets and bandaids squared away. Every little bit counts.

In the news today.

I'm having trouble finding any good news. Maybe someone can shoot some my way.

We've got the Greens who want to declare one of our most prolific species as endangered. Yes, Koalas are doing their best Panda impersonation in some areas but (and I'm no lawyer) if you declare them endangered then aren't they protected everywhere,... like... in the places that you can't throw a rock without hitting one? Such legislation would lock up just about every acre of land with a gum tree on it but I suppose that's the point. I guess our kids will have to build their houses in the desert...

Having had the knife surgically removed from his back our former Prime Minister is talking sense regarding protectionism while our current Prime Minister pulls in the opposite direction. Her plan? Un-viable Australian companies should have their wares forced on other (formerly) viable Australian companies. Is she playing at some kind of patriotic angle knowing the harm she'd cause or is she just that stupid? Then again I shouldn't credit her with having the authority to write her own script. How naive. I'm just now slapping my own wrist.

Meanwhile, the Eurozone is in dire straits and despite the many predictions made about a U.S. default it may turn out that the death of the E.U. is the crisis that finally drags us down the tube. Greece has been teetering on the edge for a long time and there's now talk of them leaving the E.U. Whichever way you cut it these are not things that tend to happen when prosperity is in the air.

If you know anyone that lived through the Great Depression then you ought to have a chat with them. They, more than anyone else alive, understand that the best minds of the day armed with a thousand history books and unprecedented levels of technology still created a situation that resulted in mass poverty for millions of previously well off first world citizens. 

It's happening again,
                      so prepare like it's 1928.

A beacon of restraint.

Well, our quaint firearms laws once again vilify the victim and send a message to the criminal class, "we are indeed legally helpless against your thuggery". At least his sentence was suspended. What a world. We give this guy a battle rifle in Vietnam and tell him to kill commies for democracy. Now, we tell him he can't pick up a shotgun to defend his own land and livelihood. I now know the feeling of national shame, even if I'm a part of the minority in that regard.

On a happier note I picked up two rifles today after jumping through a half dozen authoritarian hoops. I'd heard stories about how some police officers go less by the letter of the law and more about "what they feel comfortable with" but I experienced it in full yesterday and it opened the floodgates of my anger toward our loss of freedom. Apparently four dynabolts through the base of a gunsafe into dense concrete does not constitute "securing against easy removal" to the officer in question. 

"It wiggles a fair bit at the top, doesn't it...", was the response. "Is there a reason you didn't bolt it to the wall?"

"Well...", says I. "The wall is made of crappy cinder block. If those bricks survived the dynabolts they certainly wouldn't survive a concerted effort to lever the safe away from the wall..."

"But I've never seen one wobble at the top like this..."

I read out loud from the piece of paper she'd just handed me regarding my responsibilities as a firearms owner.
"The receptacle must be bolted down or otherwise secured in such a fashion as to prevent easy removal."

"Yes", says she. "I'm not satisfied that this is the case here..."

I take a deep, calming breath. I wanted desperately to respond, "well why don't you go ahead and show me just how easy it is to remove?" At times like these you start weighing your desire to fight the man against practicality. The wise voice tells you that fighting the man at his own game is for mugs, especially when you live in a small town where the law enforcement officers aren't likely to forgive and forget.

"Tell you what", says I. "I'll bolt it to the wall if it makes you feel better..."

Perhaps sensing that I spared her an hour of argument and a call to her supervisor (on his day off) she shared in the spirit of diplomacy.

"In that case", she replied, "I'll fax the paperwork straight away."

Sick of climate change yet?

Though I was half joking when I said that it seemed Climate Change was responsible for everything terrible that was, is and will be, it turns out that every new study seems to prove that ridiculous assertion to be correct.

Climate change the cause of rising mental illness trends? Perhaps a more accurate link between the two would read "Scaremongering climate change nonsense proven to drive people bonkers." I mean really,... I like the environment as much as the next guy but if I hear about one more stupid study regarding this all intrusive phenomenon then I'm going to burn my hatchback and replace it with a Mack truck. Then, I'll invest all my money in Brazilian palm oil portfolios and top it all off by spending my weekends ring barking trees. 

This is not science anymore. It's hysteria, and the worst kind of hysteria because in spite of all the actual threats we face, the real ones that can manifest in the time it takes you to eat breakfast, people choose to pack their dacks over the idea that the world is getting warmer by (GASP) a tenth of a degree a year! Well folks, I'll call it right here. If we're still building strip malls and watching American Idol by the time that pitiful temperature increase actually matters then I'll eat my hat!

It's the oft forgotten fact that Democracy is never better represented than in a free market. If you're a climate change fanatic then by all means plant a hundred trees, buy a Prius and go about heating your home by rubbing your hands together really fast, but don't come hither with any Stalinist assertions that the rest of us are too stupid or greedy to make the "right" decision. When the minority repeatedly burdens the majority they're adding straws to the camel's back.

Did I mention the camel's name is "Restraint"?
