18-02-2006 17:50It oftentimes boggles the mind to try and understand the ease with which the Establishment can manipulate the American citizenry into another warmongering escapade..yet it is easy to comprehend this phenomenon, for we live inside the United States of Amnesia, a country where all semblance of the yesterday becomes but a haze of blatant forgetfulness and convenient whitewash.

I'm left with an abstract feeling of dread, not overpowering, but very much there. Things I've always taken for granted are set to change forever, and I don't know what the future holds or where we are going anymore.

18-02-2006 08:28The UK’s channel 4 TV ran a programme last night [Friday 17 February 2006] cataloguing the brazen violation of democratic and civilised standards by Tony Blair regime - both in govt and within the former Labour [the Blaired-Browned 'New' Labour] party now in fast decline as a force for ethical standard in society the violence done by Blaired time-serving toughies at the 2005 party conference against a victim of Nazi Germany – Walter Wolfgang, a labour party member for 57 years, would be unbelievable if the details of his abysmal treatment were shown on a ‘foreign’ TV station. The creepy careerists who physically manhandled Walter included a black man and two white men. The two white men were reported as having been Blairing local councillors. They showed no remorse for their violence against Walter and his much younger fellow pro-democracy protester against the Blairing descent into undemocracy within the Party. The role of Blaring councillors has become a very hot political issue in the East End of London. Councillors have been found to have been touting for the Crossrail tunnel-hole attack on the community. The atmosphere of political campaigning for democratic accountability by the controlling group of Tower Hamlets Councillors is getting hotter by the day. Local MP George Galloway has already confirmed that he and his RESPECT Coalition would join the local community in civil disobedience and judicial review actions to stop the Crossrail tunnel-hole. Against this background, Blairing local Government Minister Phil Woolas’s appointment of any number of ‘Standards Board’ members looks unmistakably surreal and ridiculous.
