Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)

Dave –
You can’t really expect a Christian god to do us a favour like that.
No way.
There HAS to be someone left to knock on the front door at that very moment you’ve decided to take a dump. You know , with a copy of ‘Watchtower’ or ‘Awake’ clutched in their little mitt, just for you.
Otherwise there wouldn’t be a Christian god, or police ethic, or – –

No. Self determination is needed. Something like this –

For all our advances in science and technology,humans have got to be the most stupid beings in the universe in regards to what makes us happy and keeping a balance in power structures.

I think that advances in science have out stripped our ability to adapt to this change.Hence we have all this dysfunctionality at a personal ,Corporate and Govt level.

What’s the answer John?

Unfortunately the administrator of this blog is not at the moment available. It is unclear if this is temporary or permanent.

Always remember that the decent people cop the flapdoodle.
What was it called?
The Desiderata
Here it is mate –

John, you read it too – please – just to refresh your memory.

When we were young and immortal my Lady Wife gave me the Desiderata but told me that ‘I marched to the beat of a different drummer’.

She might as well have told me that I was completely out of step with the rest of humanity.

These days I accept that and conversely the base futility of the human condition unconditionally.

I never could find solace in ‘religion’ (whoever could) but as you say the drivel pouring from the mouths of ‘scientists’ and ‘prelates’ these days takes us back to the age of papier mache plague masks and the sale of indulgences.

Balance in power structures?
There is the rub.
Someone has to identify the fulcrum and pin it down.
Do you see anyone doing that these days?

Because ‘they’ want every bastard dancing about like blue arsed flies.

Forget ‘their’ games and get back to basics – look inward toward your soul – find stability there – keep katerwauling on these pages from that posture of inner strength at every opportunity and give the bastards what they deserve.

If Passant disagrees with you – then give him hell.
If I abuse you – then tell me what for.

But when those bastards – those exclusive elect – start to believe they can take advantage of our apparent discord – then let us combine and toll them down.
