Racist Wars

There's an ongoing shit storm steaming away on Twitter at the moment with some nobody who seems to be a younger, hotter, apparently more intelligent version of Germaine Greer who's using the Gee Gee's - (see what I did there?... GG ... horse....?) - tactics of using a moment when everyone is focussed on the sacrifice of many - including their own family members - to shout out from the roof tops...


Remember war. The whole truth. Not the selective version. All the heros. All the victims. Not Anzac Day. Let's move on and learn.
  1. via web
Anzac Day. Fuck repect. Respect is just code for 'support our selective narrative used to prop up our power that we use to oppress.'
  1. via web
Live your own life. Make your own mark. Stop feeling big because your dead relative killed people because they knew no better.
  1. via web
Anzac Day. I abhor people whose self-esteem is fuelled by nationalism approved misogyny, homophobia, racism or cruelty administered by relos
  1. via web
I adore men. I hate bullies, homophobes, thugs, racists, misogynists and rapists in the name of war.
  1. via web
Anzac Day IS a glorification of war. They didn't die for us but because they were risktaking testosterone fuelled men with a pack mentality
  1. via web
Bigger heroes the women who leave abusive relationships with nothing. More guts the survivors of sex abuse. No medals, fanfares or marches.
  1. via web
Anzac Day. Men only enlisted to fight for the money, for the adventure or because they were racist.
  1. via web
Anyone who lived through war not a fucktard says no parades, no medals, everyone who suffered and struggled remembered. Anzac Day Shits Me.
  1. via web
Anzac Day. Men only inlisted to fight for the money, for the adventure or because they were racist.
  1. via web
Politicians should only be allowed to wage wars they have to serve in themselves and send their children to fight in. In the front line.
  1. via web
Anzac Day refuses to recognize the chest thumping and dick swinging politicians that create the death, suffering, torture and poverty of war

The Best of Twitter

One of the hardest things - I find - is finding people to follow that make a difference, in some way. Excluding friends, things to follow are REAL hard to find. Depending what you want to get out of Twitter there is something for everyone but sometimes - as with blogging - you don't know what you want to find but know you want SOMETHING.

The problem using using Twitter.com's lists is that it is merely the who's who of pop culture shit.


You see my problem. So, my question. Just how do you REALLY find the best of the best?.

Here's a couple I HIGHLY recommend.

@shitmydadsays - Dude's father that's FULL of comedy gold. Examples...


"Waking up when you got a baby, you feel like you drank a bottle of whiskey the night before, except the shit's in someone else's pants."

"I found some shit in your room...No, I found actual shit. Feces...Well I should hope it's from your shoes, otherwise what the fuck?"

"Don't ask for my opinion then. I said congrats on the car, just saying nobody's panties are getting wet from a fucking Honda Accord."

"HIDDEN roaming charges? Jesus, Sprint has 'fucking people' down to a science, like they practice it in a fucking lab on mice first."

And this one is one of the miracles of modern science. The thing that shits me about it is that this dude can Tweet from fucking SPACE but I can't call my home phone with my mobile standing next to the fucking thing. Thank you VODAFONE.

Anyway, he's an astronaut on the international space station.

Awesome. Click on links that say 'twitpic' on his page.

Anyone got some for me?.

The Power of Google Search

Don't ever google 'Poo'.

It's disturbing.

In google books there's a book about what your poo means to you. In news, there's various articles about people's run in with poo that "is news worthy". Trust me, don't go there. Apparently there's a place in the states called 'Poo' and a local busness called 'Poo-Fection Plumbing'. In videos there's a video for kids called "Lil Pooey Poo: Stay Away!". Here's part of the description.

"Poop, poop and more poop! A parody about what lil' Pooey Poo's days are all about much to the disgust of his older sibling."

I didn't have stomach to see what Lil Pooey Poo's days are all about.

...and as for images....well.....seriously, there's shit - 'cuse the pun - you just can't erase.

The War, from the left.

If you only took in the rhetoric of 'the left' - (for the want of a better term describing everyone) - regarding the current war spread out over the mid east, you'd be forgiven for believing the war was being fought in marshmallow land where unicorns and rainbows are born. Where the locals wandered happily, holding hands, living in trees, communing with nature on a spiritual level, and where universal love was being delivered to the world by every dump they took on their recycled toilet bowls ... sorry, 'gift to the world receptacles'.

You'd be forgiven for believing our soldiers floss with the entrails of the babies they ran over in their mid afternoon sport of ... well, running over babies. You'd be forgiven for believing their hamburgers are made from the minced foetus of scientific experimentation gone wrong ... or right. You'd be forgiven for believing every single one of them have horns protruding from their heads with heads skewered atop, they laugh maniacally at every dead 'native' they step on, and where the endless daily bombings by militia of varying backgrounds slaughtering dozens daily just don't happen. They don't talk about those, you'll never hear use the term 'murderers' or 'baby killers' or 'war crime' for them.

Apparently the natives of marshmallow land where rainbows and unicorns are born don't appear on that radar of unqualified blinkered judgement.

WikiLeaking Misinformation?

I reckon there's little doubt that there have been incidences of "shoot first, ask later" in Iraq and Afghanistan throughout this war. I actually have no doubt.

Wikileaks.org "exposed" what they called "Collateral Murder" with the release of previously unseen footage on what they call an "indiscriminate" and "unprovoked slaying". The title leads to premeditation:

mur·der (mûrdr)
1. The unlawful killing of one human by another, especially with premeditated malice.

You can go HERE for the website they've dedicated to it and view their footage. The reporting of incidents where the innocent are indiscriminately killed or where Rules Of Engagement (ROE) were not followed is IMPORTANT and should be exposed. Those involved SHOULD feel the full extent of international law and justice SHOULD be done, but I really don't think this incident fits.

The deaths of the two reporters Namir Noor-Eldeen and Saeed Chmagh is a tragedy as they died attempting to bring news to the world. You'd be fairly safe in assuming all reporters in war zones know the risks involved in moving unprotected throughout areas where conflict is taking place. No one should die at work.

The problem I have with THIS information is that it is apparently biased, and incomplete. The focus of Wikileak's video is on the 'murder' of 'innocents'. At about 3 minutes of their 17 - odd minute video is this .... that they DO NOT even mention, but they CAN indentify the two reporters just previous to this shot and the bags they're carrying?. These two weapons are VASTLY more obvious than the bags the reporters were carrying - IMO. How come they didn't mention them?.

To me, it seems fairly obvious those two are carrying weapons. One appears to be a folding stock AK47 - or some derivative - and the other is carrying an RPG. You can even see how he's holding it and how he stands it at his feet with a weighty end up. That's one big fucken camera if it isn't. Kinda impractical for combat photography you'd think.To me, unfortunately for the two reporters, she's all over from there. Yes, I believe the pilots misidentified the two reporters as combatants, but those two, were correctly indentified - IMO.

THIS ARTICLE pretty much echoes my thoughts on the misinformation that WikiLeaks APPARENTLY is doing with incomplete and unsubstantiated assumptions and just straight out glossing over some information. Let me remind you, "indiscriminate" and "unprovoked slaying" of "unarmed civilians".

From transcript AT CollateralMurder.com

18:56Six; this is Four. I got one individual looks like he's got an RPG round laying underneath him. Break.
32:33This is Bushmaster Six. Has that RPG round been extended already or is it still live, over.
32:38Looks live to me.

More of this will come out over time. Seems to me though, that this MAY have been used to get WikiLeaks some attention which, to me, makes their apparent shot at getting hits more predatory than anything in their footage. That might make them playing the public for fools, and most are biting. Hope I'm wrong.


Here's a vid I made this morning with more information regarding WikiLeaks terminology and suggestions.
