Thoughts are with the families of the 2 Aussies that died as well as those that survived & have to deal with what happened. I hope the media & public give them all the space & support they need & not smother them. Our "need to know" what happened isn't as important as their need to survive this.

The worthless piece of shit that did this was a Criminal & was on bail for "accessory to murder" & 40 counts of "sexual assault" & knew he would be in a jail cell very soon. Regardless of what flag he waved, he was a sexual predator that possibly murdered his wife, had been flagged as a problem by many in the Muslim community & was desperate. 
The media & politicians will call him all sorts of things to suit their own purposes but, IMHO, his actions had nothing to do with religious zealotry & everything to do with being a fucking mongrel dog that was backed into a corner & waiting to be put in a cage. His actions were his alone & while different bail or court conditions MAY have changed this outcome, the actions of a sadistic criminal are not the responsibility or fault of those in the Aussie Muslim Community.

Hate only breeds more Hate & the old "Fight Fire With Fire" leaves you only with a burnt out landscape where nothing survives. Hopefully most Australians won't give in to fear, hate or racism or parade it in front of their kids or each other like it's something to be proud of. It's not.

Kudos to all those doing something positive for the country.</b>

"This is not a time for celebration. The death of Margaret Thatcher is nothing more than a salient reminder of how Britain got into the mess that we are in today. Of why ordinary working people are no longer able to earn enough from one job to support a family; of why there is a shortage of decent affordable housing; of why domestic growth is driven by credit, not by real incomes; of why tax-payers are forced to top up wages; of why a spiteful government seeks to penalise the poor for having an extra bedroom; of why Rupert Murdoch became so powerful; of why cynicism and greed became the hallmarks of our society. Raising a glass to the death of an infirm old lady changes none of this. The only real antidote to cynicism is activism. Don't celebrate - organise."

- Billy Bragg

Billy is partially right but when there is one less monster among us, who is responsible for death, misery & the destruction of human rights, there is always time to raise a glass before re-manning the barricades.
Cheers.

Cheers to my mate RAMA for his upbeat journal, always good to get a positive shake-up (toonrama.deviantart.com/journa…)

Reminded me of this:

"We have all been guilty of defining the enemy, and indeed there are those who would obstruct the course of liberty, yet ultimately the enemy is to be found within. There is no them and us, there is only you and me. We need to consolidate, reassess, reject what patently does not work and be prepared to adopt ideas and attitudes that might. We need to find the 'self' that can truly be the authority that it is. We need to look beyond the barbed-wire and the ranks of police for a vision of life which is of our choosing, not that which is dictated by cynics and despots. The exponent of Karate does not aim at the brick when wishing to break it, but at the space beyond. We would do well to learn from that example."

Ok ppl, my partner-in-crime & I are now currently part of the process for publishing 1 piece of political art (in colour) & several political poems into the Australian nationwide publication, Green Left Weekly.

The images must be in HIGH resolution and in either PDF (export from most vector programs), PNG or JPG. Poetry must be in RTF or Word format. Obviously the subject will have political or social relevance today & ALL artwork & poetry MUST be signed or it WILL NOT be accepted.

Synaptic Graffiti Collective seek your submissions of Video Poetry for the DVD anthology "MEMORY"

We are seeking works that correspond with broader social movements/events, as well as those exploring the links between memory and identity, and memory and place. From birth we are influenced by the corporate media with its imagery of greed and violence. MEMORY will do more than metaphorically scrawl on the walls of the system, it will break through them with powerful creative expressions of WHO WE REALLY ARE

Your video can consist of any combination of media including: spoken word, music, text, still and moving images. Video poems with a strong filmic quality are preferred. For full submission guidelines visit:


www.myspace.com/synapticgraffiti

or email: synapticgraffiti@scart69.net

NB: Submissions will close February 28, 2010

Once again, DA has shown they're all about the money & conservatism, not about art.

A brilliant artist called Ben Hiene has been banned, read about it here:
doublecrash.deviantart.com/jou…
& here:
no-more-ignorance.deviantart.c…

DA is about SAFE Art apparently and anything else must be kept away from peoples view. I guess we should be thankful that HR Giger, Diego Rivera, Freida Carlo and hundreds of other brilliant artists didn't have to rely on DA's Moral Majority ideas about Art to get their works recognized. Apparently it's fine to show close-ups of genitals on DA but even cartoons depicting Jesus & anything to do with SEX must be instantly removed from sight.

Since Ben's got a paid subscription then hopefully they are committing an act of fraud by banning a paid up customer and get their ass sued off, although I'm sure in typical corporate style, they've made sure they've got it covered.

BRING BACK BEN HEINE

Ok, Rachabelle posted these "Curious Questions" that don't really require answers but since I had 10 mins to kill I wrote some anyway, the majority of which are ludicrous but hey, that's what happens when you allow inmates to have access to sharp objects like computers..... ;P

How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

(People are usually classed as "assasinated" if they're killed for their political/social actions or if they were REALLY ANNOYING like Pee Wee Herman)

Why do you have to ' put your two cents in'... but it's only a ' penny for your thoughts'? Where's that extra penny going to?

(The Govt steals it while you're not looking, just like they steal any good thoughts you might have)

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

(Ever tried making a round box that can be quickly assembled by someone who's barely getting minimum wage?)

What disease did cured ham actually have?

(It was a Capitalist Pig before it died, nuff said? ;-)

How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

(Neil Armstrong on the moon, quote "Someone should of put wheels on these ****** equipment boxes cause even at 1/6th gravity they're still ******* heavy." )

Why is it that people say they 'slept like a baby' when babies wake up like every two hours?

(They usually mean that they peed them selves while they were asleep)

If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

(Yes and the mean old judge talks gibberish like "woodee rubble bubble grumbly bumrum" and everyone laughs at the DEAFendant when they try and work out what the *** they're being charged with. True story.)

Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV?

(Why is Woody Allen in ANY movie?)

Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

(Cause people are inherently ******* stupid and they can't see the forest for the trees and objects in the rear view mirror may appear....)

Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked anyway.

(To set up the Web Cam for their streaming porn site that they're filming for ;-) You know it's true.

Why is 'bra' singular and ' panties' plural?

(you're right, it makes no sense, let's outlaw both of them.)

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

(Cause un-decent people have got to have something to eat and cause some of us are too lazy to bother putting our steaks in a pan.)

If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?

(Cause Jimmy was the first Emo and instead of cutting himself he just cracked corn, no-one gave a **** so he started cutting himself and things just blew up from there...)

Can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the carpool lane?

(YES, but it has to be strapped into the passenger seat and have enough coins in it's eye sockets to pay the toll)

If the professor on Gilligan's Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can't he fix a hole in a boat?

(Because he's over-educated and is waiting for an infinite singularity to occur which will condense all time and matter into one point, thereby rendering the need to repair the boat superflous since he'll then be right next to EVERYTHING and can then just step onto dry land...... I didn't say it was a good theory)

If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn't he just buy dinner?

(For the same reason that serial killers don't hire contract mercenaries, the pleasure comes from a job well done)

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

(D. all of the above)

Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

(Maybe, but if Oasis can just reverse the chord structure of every Beatles Song and pretend they're original then it's not really such a biggie)

Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

(Cause i've taken 3 doses of MDMA)

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

(Ok, then if you have such a strong inate desire to blow in your dogs face then only do it when his head's out the window, that way he won't notice and you can get your jollies as well, see, now everyone's happy)


cheers ;-)

The experiment called “Capitalism” has failed.

What happens when we put the greediest people in charge of our unplanned economies, when we allow the “exploiters” to make killings off the backs of workers for years and years?

What happens when the richest and most unethical people on the planet are allowed to suck nations dry then pull all their funds out, move the profits offsore into multinational corporations and leave a dying husk that requires the tax payers dollars, the blood sweat and tears of millions of workers to stay running and to fulfill it’s obligations to the people that made it so rich?

Pick up your paper and read the headlines and you’ll find out.

So the poor can go homless but the rich can get bailed out every time?

We privatised the profit but hey, now we want to socialize the cost?

So we can use the institutions and funds that are based more on socialist principles to bail out the free market when it’s greed and selfishness threaten to tear it down? Considering that Free Market Capitalism is only really built on greed, exploitation and squeezing every last drop out of the world then doesn’t that mean EVERY SINGLE TIME?

Instead of education, healthcare, housing, roads & infastructure, tax payers dollars have to, once again, go towards propping up multi-national corporations. Companies whose greed and “responsibility to return a dividend to it’s shareholders” meant it’s funds went into ludicrous and exploitative practises like lending housing loans to people that had no chance of EVER paying it back. Poor and working class people who the banks KNEW would default but their inention was to get as much from them as possible before they re-possesed the house. Companies who send jobs to sweatshops in China and "sweatshop style" Call Centers in India?

This is not a “freak occurance”, it’s called “boom & bust” capitalism for a reason, it happens over and over and the workers are asked to hand over their tax dollars to fix the problems created by the greed of the rich. It’s not a “one-off” thing happening, it’s part of the pattern of an unplanned economy based around a so called “free market” and it is doomed to fail over and over, as any house of cards will.

Whether you believe the next answer is socialism, anarchism, communism or kind of some social hybrid economy and system, one thing is becoming crystal clear once again:

It sure as hell isn’t CAPITALISM.

Let’s face it:

The Emperor was never wearing any clothes and if we had of really stopped to look instead of all dreaming of being the priveleged few that leave the rest behind & make it to the top of the heap, we would of noticed that.

Ladies & Gentlemen, the experiment called “Capitalism” has failed.

Now let’s get together & begin to build/rebuild something better because as long as we're all still here, another world is STILL possible.

cheers
