There Goes Freedom of Speech !

As Reported in The NOT SORRY NEWS: In late September this year the Jewish High Court Judge Mordecai Bromberg ruled that Melbourne journalist, Andrew Bolt, had racially vilified 9 alleged Aborigines by pointing out that although they were as Fair-skinned as the whitest Australian and some having had very little Aboriginal ancestry, they nevertheless chose to identify as Aborigines, many for reasons of gain.

In his articles (2009), Bolt criticised these fair-skinned Aborigines for what he argued was a choice they made, as people with mostly European blood, to emphasise their indigenous heritage over their white heritage. He wrote that some of these fair-skinned Abos, whom he called "political Aboriginality", had received prominence or indigenous awards because they chose to identify with their scant Aboriginality.

The Jewish lawyer for the so-called Aborigines, Ron Merkel, said Bolt was free to express his views on the subject, but should not have chosen to attack the 9 individuals he named in his newspaper columns and blog. He even had the nerve to compare his blog with Nazi writings against the Jews in Germany that asserted that they provoked the rise of the holocaust! Neil Young, lawyer for Bolt, said that was preposterous and argued that freedom of speech trumped other rights and was the cornerstone of democracy.

Mr Bolt took the stand and argued that those who chose to identify with only one part of their background were contributing to racism and came at the cost of less focus on the important issues of education, housing, health and poverty. Unfortunately Judge Bromberg, probably relating to the nasty Holocaust vision by Ron Merkel, ruled against Mr Bolt and every other white Australian with an opinion on the matter. In essence, this insane verdict by Bromberg is endorsing the crazy Racial Vilification Act, which can be used as a battering ram by everybody except white Caucasians to try and silence any criticism of every two-bit minority that wants to play the Race Card.

Andrew Bolt published the absolute and unvarnished truth about Aboriginality. There is not a shadow of a doubt that the 9 plaintiffs have used traces of Aboriginal ancestry to identify as being Aboriginal. What this means is that a person with one-sixteenth Aboriginal ancestry can legitimately imply that he or she is a full-blood Abo and use this as a vehicle to claim all sorts of benefits. It can be easily proven that some of these 9 plaintiffs have exactly that. What a rort!

The Way I See It...that idiot judge has now politicised genetic science by ruling that these and other Abos standing can be legally changed and legally recognised if that person asserts that he is of the race chosen by him...screw DNA testing. This concept these 9 Abos are attesting to and want put into the law books is so stupid, racist and down-right wrong.

We stand right behind Andrew Bolt and his comments about these nine "ghost'' Aborigines. We and many in the journalistic and legal profession condemn this ridiculously stupid verdict by Bromberg and state that this sort of action brings the whole system of Australian jurisprudence into utter contempt. How could any same person have anything but contempt for that scumbag Ron Merkel for pursuing litigation that tramples on the very fundamental concept of freedom of speech, the press and expression, as well as trying to politically and legally overturn scientific fact? Andrew should point-blank refuse to apologise or retract anything has has said in this matter and refuse to pay one cent of compensation. He ought to give those plaintiffs the finger and tell them to stick it up their WHITE asses!

Promises, Promises !

Now, with a new U.S. Presidental election on the horizon this coming year I got to thinking about the last one. It was three and half years ago that Mr Barack Obama was campaigning hard for president. He was drawing immense crowds, bringing them to their feet screaming his name. What was he promising these fans (suckers)?

1) That he would end the recession and bring back a healthy, booming economy. Has he done it? Obviously not. The crash stopped because of the rescue of Wall Street by George W. Bush's bailout. I don't see any causative link between Obama's trillion-dollar "stimulus package" and his supersize deficits and the modest recovery there is. There is still extremely high unemployment and a housing foreclosure disaster that could take years to resolve. This was a failed promise.

2) That he would "reset'' relations with Russia.He promised to get friendly relations with this important country. Still the Russians mock the U.S. and balk at any cooperation in the U.N. and everywhere else. Another failure.

3) That he would go over the federal budget "line by line" to weed out waste and corruption that would save so much money to help balance the budget.This one was a laughter from day one. He could not possibly go through the millions of lines in the federal budget. It was just a nonsense. As it happened, we have a wildly bigger budget than ever before and deficits on a scale that is genuinely terrifying. So far...another big failure.

4) That he would bring peace to the Middle East.Another bad and naive promise. The Middle East is more dangerous than ever. Kicking out Mubarak from Egypt has given the land of the Nile an anti-Israel, anti-u.S. government that is already working hand in glove with the terrorists in Gaza. Libya has also joined the club. Fail!

5) That he would create a new, peaceful productive relationship with Iran.Oops! Did he really believe that? Was he delusional or just naive? He missed the opportunity to oust that scumbag regime when the young people rioted against rigged elections but sat on his hands instead of extending his support so the revolution eventually was crushed. Big failure.

The Way I See that the man is an inept failure. He couldn't lead a dog down a street much less show some "balls" in the international arena. In an effort to woo over the Muslim world he seems to believe somehow that even criticism of radial extremists of Islam is a slap in the face to their religion as a whole. Americans are angry that he obviously has not taken the war on terror seriously enough, especially when they see that government officials won't even utter the word "Islamic radicalism." That smacks of APPEASEMENT! Maybe his Muslim roots are to blame.

The world knew how that great statesman Winston Churchill felt about appeasing one's enemy. To quote the great man: "An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last." And to add insult to injury, Obama has insulted our two best friends in the world --Britain and Israel --by showing his contempt for them.

It is very hard to find any real pluses in his term so far with his Socialist agenda consistently undermining the very principles that was made America great. This is how great nations fold up. They get small men and women in Big jobs. He should definately not be voted back in as President.

U.S Trumped by China says Trump !

Two days ago Donald Trump angrily stated in an interview from Newsmax Magazine that Obama's administration's decision not to call China out as a currency manipulator is totally "inconceivable" because "all you have to do is look at the numbers, they have doing it for years." He said emphatically that President Barack Obama does not command Chinese respect.

Earlier this week, Obama declined to label China a currency manipulator after seeing recent increases in the value of the Yuan compared to the Dollar. Trump said, "We have a naive bunch in the White House that has the Chinese laughing at us. I deal with the Chinese all the time...they tell me they cannot believe what they are getting away with. They are not our friends." He says the Chinese make it impossible for U.S. companies to remain competitive because the currency manipulation is so severe. "We let them take our jobs", he added.

"They take our money and then they loan it back to us and we pay them interest and Obama's given us a $16 trillion deficit," he said. "The whole thing is absolutely insane. And for this bum, as President, to say they don't manipulate their currency is...really a LIE to the American people." He stated the President is beholden to lobbyists on this issue.

The real estate billionaire said if he was President, he would put a 25% tax on all the goods coming in from China, although a treat to do so would probably be enough for the Chinese to back off. "If only Obama had the balls to do it! And you'll get some government troll say 'Oh, you'll stop free trade.' This is no free trade--this is stupid trade -- this is stupid on our behalf. And we have to stop it, we have to stop it soon. It is destroying our country!"

The Way I See It....the Chinese economy is poised to surpass the U.S. economy later this century. America is practically owned by China. China is the largest holder of Treasury paper, with 850 billion as of July. Obama's government isn't addressing the trade deficit and the exploding debt burden. As a student of history...I see there is a parallel to the collapse of Britain's empire in the 20th Century.

China and India represented the world's two biggest economies in 1832, and that ranking will repeat itself by 2032. The 200 years when Britain and the United States were the top two economies were an aberration, and that will change...unfortunately. The decline of empires has happened much faster than folks think. To be on the safe-side, my advice would be that gold will be a far better bet in 20 years than the dollar.

I Think Congratulations are in Order is for those of you born in the 1930's, 40's, 50's and even the 1960's. Congrats! Why? Because you will have a right to be a little smug as I have you reflect on those innocent years with their not so terrible consquences that made us what we are today.

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us and lived in houses with no air conditioning. They took aspirin, ate soft cheeses, raw egg products, loads of bacon and processed meat, tuna from a can and fish caught by their husbands. And our mothers didn't have to go to work to help dad make ends meet and enjoyed "housekeeping".

Then after that risky pregnancy business, our baby cots were covered with bright coloured lead-based paints. We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets. When riding our bikes we had no helmets and many times no shoes. Back then we didn't need to worry about hitchhiking either. We would also ride in the family car with no seat belts or air bags.

We drank water from the garden hose and not from a plastic bottle and we shared a drink with four friends from a soda bottle without getting sick. Our mother cooked all the meals as take-away food was limited to fish and chips. There were no Pizza shops, McDonalds, KFC, Subway or Nandos. And even though all the shops closed a 6:00pm and didn't open on Sundays, somehow we didn't starve to death!

We ate biscuits, white bread with real butter and had sugary drinks but we weren't overweight because...WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!! We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the street lights came on the folks were happy. No one was able to reach us all day and we seemed better for it. We never were house-bound by Playstations, Nintendo Wiis, X-boxes or video games but by rainy days and couldn't wait to go out. We had friends and we went outside and found them.

We fell out of trees and off of monkey bars, got cut, broke bones and even teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents. It was "Grin & Bear It". The boys were given air or BB guns on their 10th birthday and later on were much appreciated in the armed services for their marksmanship and at the same age ONLY girls got their ears pierced.

The Way I See those days the Rugby, Football, Cricket and/or the Baseball try outs were tough on those that didn't make the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with the disappointment, because we all knew then that getting onto the team was based on Merit. We got toughened up when our teachers smacked us with a ruler for being inattentive, stood us in a corner or sent us to the principle's office for the cane. Through all of this our self-esteem was bruised maybe, but never crushed by being shown how to behave responsibly.

And finally...the idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the Law! All in all...we had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all! Congratulations to you....the Older Generations!

BEWARE....the Cult of Deafness!

Last month, in Australia, a prominent educator on disabled children is under attack from the deaf community after reports that she described deafness "as a scourge in our world" during an awards ceremony. The remarks by Dr Dimity Dorman (see photo), director of Brisbane-based organisation Hear and Say, which teaches deaf children how to listen and speak, were made when she was named Telstra's Queensland Businesswoman of the Year on Tuesday and got on stage and started to speak.

Dr Dornan could never have imagined, as she rose to accept her award that she was about to be accused of genocide! Nor could she have imagined that Telstra, in naming her for this prestigious award was about to censor her for a crime against multiculturalism or for just general offensiveness. I doubt you'll quarrel with a words of what she said.

According to the Brisbane Times, Dornan gave a reved-up speech that included this: "I think deafness is at the same stage as polio was a few decades ago. It is a scourge in our world but it can be almost completely eradicated." Oops!!

Within 48 hours, Deaf Australia, Deaf Victoria and the Deaf Association of New South Wales all demanded Dr Dornan apologise for insulting deaf people, while hundreds of other assholes denounced her on a Facebook page called (if you can believe it) STOP DEAF CULTURAL GENOCIDE, with other deadshits demanding she be sued for vilification!

Gutless Telstra, which makes a fortune from people communicating, snipped Dornan's own words, removing from its website and YouTube a video of her speech on the grounds her comments could offend. It was, of course, to have the nerve to say deafness was an illness, a scourge, and something that should be eradicated. It was to treat the deaf as disabled and not just another of our multicultural minorities. BooHoo!

Hear it from Sharon Everson, head of the Deaf Society in NSW; "People just find it SO offensive that hearing people still want to cure them...that hearing people aren't willing to value, I suppose, what is a deaf community." What Everson is hinting at is that there is what some fanatics in the deaf community call "a Deaf Culture". (cult for short) As a lobby group Aussie Deaf Kids puts it: "For culturally deaf people, to be deaf is a natural state of express sadness or regret (god-forbid!) for a person's deafness can be considered a lack of acceptance of who they are." You wouldn't want to hurt their self-esteem, now would's pathetic!

The Way I See It....this is political correctness gone mad. Soon we'll have the RSPCA attacked for calling female dogs "bitches"....give me a break! Surely any normal, sane (no offence to the fruitcakes out there) individual can comprehend she wants to get rid of the scourge of deafness, not that deaf people are a scourge. Even Blind Freddy (oops!) could see this.

I don't think deaf people should be "proud" of being deaf any more than an alcoholic should be proud of their excessive drinking. Sure, be proud of what being deaf has taught you. Be proud of how you have overcome the obstacles being deaf creates. Be proud of the innovation and tenacity of the deaf community and the help it gets from wonderful people like Dr Dornan. But does anyone seriously suggest that the "Deaf Culture" should be reinforced with cries of villification if its possible to consign this disability to the history books?

Note: Federal Disability Discrimination Commissioner, Graeme Innes, said he can't understand the deaf community's silliness about the speech but reminded them that Australia had no disability vilification laws and thus there was no basis to lodge a complaint. Mr Innes said, "I have no argument with Dr Dornan's right to hold her opinions and I hope I don't hear anything more about this."

Christmas Eve Thoughts

I love Christmas. I love the decorations, the lights on the tree and up and down every street. I love the feeling in the air and the cooking and last minute rushing around. Yep, it's my favourite time of the year. But this year I have had a realisation that I am unsure about.

Christmas is full of pretence. From the moment we understand anything at all about Christmas, our parents pretend there is a fat man who somehow gets around the world in one night and manages to enter and exit our homes via a chimney which we may or may not even have!

When we are a little bit older we learn to pretend we love every single thing we unwrap, "It's exactly what I always wanted." We learn to pretend when Uncle Micheal makes a joke, it's funny; we learn that we must pretend we enjoy hearing "My, how you've grown!" twenty times from twenty separate relatives we don't even really remember and who all enjoy stating the bleeding obvious.

We pretend that it's okay to have five extra house-guests turn up on Christmas Eve. We pretend it's okay that our favourite wine glass gets broken and we pretend...maybe not too successfully...that the red wine stain on our carpet will come out with a professional clean. The world over, people are pretending for the Christmas season. And I wonder if that's a bad thing.

We do it, essentially, to avoid hurting people's feelings and keeping the peace. We don't want to be the ones who ruined we grit our teeth and pretend all is going well.

The Way I See It....I wonder why we don't do it all year round? The thing with pretending is this: the longer you do it, the more it becomes your reality. Maybe if we pretended more often to appreciate family and enjoy being with them, we would soon find we don't need to pretend any more. If we pretended more often not to care about our material possessions, like wine glasses and carpet, we might find our priorities changing so we can better see the Big Picture of our existence.

We just might find that our pretence turns into honesty and surely that can only be beneficial to us, our families and our communities. Then maybe we can take leaf out of the book of a certain baby born over 2000 years ago. And this particular baby was pretending to be nothing other than who He was. May you enjoy this Christmas, and future Christmases, in a new light and perspective.

Medics Dummy-Spit Over New Chiro-School

If it wasn't so would be funny. News articles have come out saying that Central Queensland University (in Mackay, Queensland) is under fire over its new Chiropractic course, described by a group of uninformed scientists and doctors as based on "anti-science". They want courses in chiropractic, as well as acupuncture and naturopathy, scrapped claiming they are a misuse of public money and encourage quackery. (sic!)

A bluntly worded letter to the university's hierarchy, signed by 34 medical people, including former Australian-of-the-Year, the Ian Frazer, known for his development of the deadly Gardasil vaccine. (See my April 26 & 27th, 2010 postings on Gardasil) It seems to have escaped these high-minded individuals that there are three other chiropractic programs in Australia situated in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth and now also in Auckland, New Zealand that can't keep up with the public's demand for chiropractic's natural healing approach.

The really stupid argument they present is that "it is necessary to protect consumers (they mean sick people) from the dangers of scientifically unproven practices and having universities giving undeserved credibility to alternative therapies." They seem to forget that Chiropractic is only 5 or so years younger than medicine. It's credibility goes back to 1895 when structural spinal misalignment causing interference to nerve supply was theorised to effect the innate health of an individual. That theory is now a fact of daily practice life for every modern chiropractor and their patients.

Speaking of unscientific, Dr Bruce Lipton, medical doctor and researcher, stated that much of medical practice itself is far from being a proven evidence-based approach. He says that only 15% of medical principles and practice qualify as being scientifically proven. You know the familiar line: "Try these pills, Mrs Jones this week and if they don''t work we'll switch to a new lot." He says that Medicine has rejected Chiropractic from the beginning because "they saw it as metaphysical. And what they call metaphysical is what we now call today Quantum Physics. Medicine is outdated, because medicine hasn't adopted Quantum Physics and it turns out that the new research reveals that the primary mechanisms controlling the body's biology are from the quantum field."

Dr Lipton states; "that allopathic medicine's old fashioned because it's still locked in to using the old physical universe of Newtonian foundations and chiropractic has been using quantum mechanics since its inception. The philosophy of chiropractic, as first postulated by D.D. Palmer, is more scientifically accurate than the principles used by allopathic medicine. It's a joke to me, because the allopathic model is the wrong model, that's why it doesn't work at keeping people well. All this treating symptoms while mostly not correcting the underlying cause of most illness."

Of course, even the pure, simple approach of chiropractic to natural healing has some oddballs in its ranks. There are colleagues (I use the term loosely) that want to limit chiropractic's help of sick humanity by confining spinal treatment to evidence-based conditions; to match the flawed allopathic model. We call these..."Medi-Practors." These people want to be recognized by medicine by discarding the original principles of D.D. Palmer and are willing to sell their soul to become medically acceptable by treating conditions rather then removing interference to spinal nerve supply (life force) to bring out the health in the patient no matter what the age group.

The Way I See It....chiropractic has had a much more accurate assessment of the flow of information in the biology in the world of the nervous system than conventional medicine. For some reason, perhaps pure arrogance, the medical profession hasn't seen the forest-for-the-trees. They can't make the connection between vertebral misalignment causing nerve interference...hence the supply to that organ, gland or tissue suffers loss of vitality. So simple.

Thirty-four misguided medicos making a big stink over one more university offering the most profound health-giving paradigm of this century sounds to me like Sour Grapes. Chiropractic, started in the 19th century, gained worldwide acceptance in the 20th century, and has now become a growing leader with the new buzz-word...Wellness Care. Governments around the world are crying out for an answer to the growing tsunami of baby-boomers and how to keep them well longer and off the hospital rolls.....and here it is... staring them in the face!

Finally, in a statement, the Central Queensland University's dean of medical and applied sciences, Grant Stanley, said, "Chiropractic is a discipline recognised by the Australian Government and the university's chiropractic program was evidence-based and WELLNESS-FOCUSED." Enough said I think!

You Trust These Bastards With Your Health?

Pharmaceutical giant CSL was reprimanded by the US Food & Drug Administration last month for "high-risk deviations" in its vaccine production that caused Australia to ban the company's flu shot for young children. (See my exposure of this cover up in my May 17th, 2010 posting)

The FDA's inspection report raised concerns that live swine flu virus was not properly deactivated to minimise the horrendous side effects of the combo vaccination. CSL's seasonal flu vaccine Fluvax, has been suspended for use by under-fives in Australia, Europe and now the US since it triggered febrile convulsions at 10 times the expected rate! So these bastards actually expect a number of convulsions from the crap they are putting into the bodies of their ignorant victims. Astonishing!

The report revealed that CSL dismissed as a "false result"a test that detected "an infectious virus" in a sample that investigator Rose Ashley reported. "I informed CSL that this was a new virus that may not perform as other viruses performed." Ms Ashley then told two other CSL officials the test could not assure the viral inactivation was achieved and further tests should be conducted to ensure the inactivation process was achieved. She was fobbed off with a terse reply, "All material has been demonstrated to be inactivated."

The FDA report also found vaccine solutions were not protected from "'contamination", as operators failed to wear masks. Better late than never, a CSL spokeswoman said it is now requiring its operators to wear face masks. What other forms of benign neglect will the FDA discover in future as CSL continues to market a vaccine with dubious effectiveness.

Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administration said it is auditing CSL monthly to see if they have improved their compliance system and have improved current processes and their quality control. It's always after the "horse-has-bolted" and innocent people are injured by slapdash production and sleeping watchdogs that make the headlines and gets the public irate, but not irate enough to refuse to have these useless shots.

The Way I See It....medical brainwashing of the public is ingrained in our society even after year after year there are studies showing flu vaccines DO NOT provide any benefit no matter what age group you are in. Three years ago a study in the British Medical Journal concluded that the effectiveness of annual flu shots has been exaggerated and that in reality they have little or no effect on influenza campaign objectives, including reducing the number of hospital stays, time off work and death from the flu and its complications. Say "NO" to the Bastards!

Belly-Fat Boosts Eye Disease Risk

Excess abdominal fat increases the risk of age-related macular degeneration in middle-aged men and may have an opposite effect in women, says a study in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a leading cause of blindness in older people and treatment options are limited. A study of 21, 290 Australians who were followed from their 40s to mid-80s found that each o.1 increase in the waist/hip ratio was associated with a 13% increased chance of developing early-stage AMD and a 75% increased chance of the more severe late-stage AMD, but only in men. Strangely, abdominal obesity reduced early AMD risk in women by 7% to 11%.

"Belly-fat releases estrogen and other chemicals (like cytokines) that may contribute to inflammation associated with AMD", researchers said. The inverse association in women could reflect a genetic resilience to disease seen older people called "the Survivorship Effect" plus the protective effects of long-term estrogen exposure.

AMD occurs when central vision deteriorates, making reading, close work and recognizing face more difficult. The most common forms are Dry and Wet AMD. Dry AMD results in a gradual loss of central vision and Wet AMD leads to sudden and significant changes in vision.

What are the symptoms?

  • A gradual decline in the ability to see objects clearly

  • Distorted vision

  • Dark or empty spaces blocking the central field of vision

  • Dimming of colour vision

The Way I See It....there is currently no cure of Age-related Macular Degeneration but treatments are available that are aimed at maintaining the vision for as long possible. You must visit an eye doctor about seeing if other eye problems that affect vision can be detected. Also an up-to-date glasses prescription is important as well as getting any cataracts and glaucoma treated.

Aside from the new found belly-fat risk just mentioned, there is a now a well-established link between smoking and it makes good sense for women as well as men to avoid or give up smoking as they enter their third trimester of Life.
