The Rapture And Other Things – Stop Yanking My Chain


There I was; waiting patiently at work for the rapture to begin, thinking wistfully about the usual (no cook) Saturday night Chicken Kebab that I won’t have a chance to eat, nor sadly ever eat again (unless fast food is served in heaven/hell of course).  Well it was a few minutes late already; and one always has to allow for discrepancies in individual clock settings, but woe is me, after all that gearing myself up, saying goodbye to loved ones, making sure there was enough dried cat stuff in the bowl for puss to eat until she could get her fat ass into gear and catch her own food, nothing at all happened.

I have to say I’m really getting sick and fed up with having my chain continuously yanked. There does not seem to be a single day that goes by whereby, we the people are reliably  ‘informed’ by the so-called ‘brightest’ and ‘best’  regarding ‘events’ ; that unfortunately turn out to be a complete crock of shit and it’s really very disappointing you know.

The MET Office told me last week that we would be having a mini heat wave this weekend; so yesterday morning before work I got my shorts out, rustled up the garden chairs ready for an in the garden reading in the sun sort of day, today.   I woke up to much, much lower temps than average for this time of year, sheet rain of an intensity normally experienced in February and bloody hailstones the size of golf balls.  You see where I’m going with this?

Talking about weather, that inveigler, (call me god), Al Gore and his slimy bunch of non-scientists that make up the cabal of lazy racketeers on the IPCC told me that the world was facing a real planetary emergency due to the correlation between CO² and earth temperatures; that when there is more carbon dioxide, the temperature gets warmer and that if we didn’t do something we would ruin the planet.

Al Gore and the IPCC shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for their movie about how man-made carbon-dioxide emissions were causing run away global warming, and how together we could rise to the challenge and beat this terrible problem; so of course I had to do my bit by agreeing to eventually be taken back to the dark ages; and give them all my money, in the meantime I installed solar panels, which have just been smashed to bits by the hailstones and have not saved any electricity at all I might add because instead of getting warmer, it’s getting colder.

Tony Blair and numerous other consummate liars told me that Saddam Hussein was a very ‘bad man’ and that he and Iraq were complicit in 9/11 and that not only that, Iraq also had these awful weapons of mass destruction that could reach the UK  within 45 minutes and that it was ever so important to make our soldiers invade that country as soon as possible, kill and torture as many civilians as humanly possible and ultimately steal all their resources to make us all safe.  So I thought ‘oh my goodness’ we must stop him and inadvertently facilitated mass murder.

Talking about consummate liars, I was told by the brightest and best recently that unless I bailed out the Bankers we faced global economic collapse; and that it was up to me to give them all my money to ensure that this wouldn’t happen.

I was shocked to the core, so I agreed wholeheartedly to let them use my money and that of my children, future grandchildren and great-grandchildren to paper over the massive cracks, to allow them to continue giving themselves morally bankrupt bonuses, continue with currency betting, not implement any levy on future financial dealings to curb the power of the City, or a Tobin tax, or false wealth accumulations, or yet use the Western stimulus spending  to sustain world infrastructure, nor really change anything; but my government, nor the financial sector elites would ever lie to me, so I mustn’t complain when the paper covering the cracks unravels and there are no jobs, can’t feed my family,  and am subsequently, catapulted into WW3; it’s not their fault.

President Obama told me he had killed that other very ‘bad man’ Osama Bin Laden the other day; so I was very pleased and took to the streets in celebration.  President Obama also told me he had to quickly bury Bin Laden at sea; to ensure that even though he had apparently brought about the deaths of 3000 of US civilians, and even though the US had paraded the bodies of many other ‘bad’ Muslims on TV; and even though President Obama is currently not respecting Muslims in Syria, Libya, Palestine and just about any and every Muslim Country in the Middle East; he had to be buried according to Muslim culture and beliefs out of respect.  I nodded my head and thought what a considerate man President Obama is.

President Obama also told me that he endorsed a major Palestinian demand today for the borders of its future state and told  Israel to accept that it can never have a truly peaceful nation that is based on “permanent occupation.”   I was so happy to hear this; even though President Obama, since taking office, has always been in the bend over and let Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu give it to me in the ass with the biggest dildo ever featured in my Ann Summers catalogue, craven unconditional support to Israel, position. I remain in awe of his stance as a bravely consistent president.

I just don’t know how many more disappointments I can take (sigh).

Tony Blairs Memoirs and Can “Firm Friends” Play A Part In A Middle East Peace Process?


I’ve been wondering recently whether Tony Blair is just a simple narcissist, or as I have long thought, a psychopath. The problem is the lines between what constitutes a narcissist and a psychopath can become blurred to amateur researchers like myself.  After careful consideration I have come to the conclusion that my latter thinking is correct; Blair is actually a psychopath.

Only the mind of a psychopath is capable of creating a thought process whereby the horrors, colossal life changing injuries and death experienced by hundreds of thousands of Iraqi people and of British soldiers, due to his egotistical participation in an illegal war, could be erased in the minds of the public at large.  Blair did exactly this in regard to his memoirs.

This is demonstrated by Blairs decision to donate the profits of his memoirs to injured troops.  Large swathes of the public at large may perceive his action as a demonstration of guilt and deep regret and of ‘making amends’.  But the decision to donate was not just driven by his recognition of this and how it could be used to rejuvenate his negative public persona, but to also perpetuate his own vanity. It seems Blair doesn’t comprehend that there really is no need to polish a turd.

Blair’s memoirs not only demonstrate the sheer awfulness of the reasoning behind his participation; they also display his total lack of a conscience, whilst at the same time pander to his own perceived superiority.   Only the psychopath is capable of creating a tool that inadvertently compounds all these things, when the opposite is actually his goal.

Blair was fully aware that the publics reaction to his memoirs would consist of fury and disdain, he was also well aware that protests and public demonstrations would follow any personal promotion of said memoirs.   It was hoped that by donating  all profits he would create a moral dilemma within said public and any protest groups.

His decision was clearly not made because he wants to atone, or feels anything at all toward those who suffered due to his actions, his writing compounds this completely, by his unshakable belief that he was completely right regardless of the consequences.

A common trait within the psychopath is an overwhelming desire to be admired; fulfilling this is difficult when the psychopath, firstly, cannot function as a normal human being as he cannot feel empathy and sympathy, but is also incapable of the warmth and humility that builds admiration in others.

Today I’ve also been thinking about the latest naïve optimism coming out of the US regarding the brokering of a Middle East peace process; along with popular US opinion that Tony Blair taking part in the launch of direct talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority in Washington is crucial.

As children we were all read fairytales with mostly happy endings where the psychopaths are punished appropriately and the subjugated live happily ever after.   I also remember that some of these fairytales were terribly dark with not so happy endings; I personally fear the ongoing quest for any long lasting peace between the Palestinians and Israel is just another one of those rather sinister fairytales.  How could it not be, given the circumstances?

Firstly, the majority of those involved are ‘firm friends’ of Israel.  This statement alone tells the world at large that any resolution is impossible given such a starting position.

Secondly, the preconditions for peace.  If unrealistic concessions (historically the case) have to be made by the Palestinians and if the Israeli administration still won’t allow Hamas to take part in any talks, the whole never ending process of peace conferences and pseudo negotiations are pointless at best.

Regardless of mass propaganda; the truth of the matter is; that Hamas have on many occasions assured numerous peace brokers that they would accept Israel as a state if Israel returned to their pre-1967 borders.   In numerous public statements in 2009 Tony Blair made clear he is well aware of this and yet now in 2010 Blair has seemingly and conveniently forgotten such acknowledgements.

Blair trumpets his ‘Pièce de résistance’ of brokering peace in Northern Ireland; and the US in particular see this as an acclamation as to why he should hold the position of a Middle East Envoy.   Unfortunately he and the present US peace brokers are also well aware that the Northern Ireland process was an abject failure up until all parties were included.

Perhaps the fact that it was actually John Major and not Blair who initiated the final peace process and the fact that it was Mo Mowlam, Senator Mitchell and other Northern Ireland politicians and not Blair, who carried out the crucial years of protracted negotiations, explains why Blair and the US think excluding Hamas is perfectly democratic and will not affect the peace process.

It seems the present Middle East peace brokers forget; that at some point, before the IRA renounced violence, laid down their arms and took up the pen instead of the sword, talks with the enemy were held and negotiations were agreed.  How else were decades of violence put aside, unless dialogue changed and at last the dice was rolled?

Blair knows all this and yet because he is ‘firm friends’ with Israel he will not acknowledge it.   The US knows this and because they are ‘firm friends’ with Israel they will also not acknowledge it.

Unfortunately, until the present peace brokers recognise that unless those with the most to lose (Israel) as well as Hamas, are also willing to renounce violence, lay down their arms and take up the pen instead of the sword and make some long overdue, honest concessions. there will be no resolution.

Until the present peace brokers employ real democracy within the proceedings instead of deliberately ensuring through their ‘special friendship’ that those who have most to gain are never to be included in the peace process there will be no resolution.
