Free the Tokyo Two

Video: YouTube

Unfortunately the video seems to have been removed, maybe due to some pressure being exerted on YouTube? who knows. Basically the video tells the story of two Japanese people (Junichi and Toru) speaking out about the Japanese whale meat scam, and then they were thrown in Gaol. Many people have written to the Japanese Prime Minister to have them released, but as far as we know they are still behind bars.

On the 16 February 1942 the Japanese gunned down 22 nurses on a beach in Sarawak and before anybody accuses me of racism, forget it, it’s a fact. Another fact is I have nothing against the Japanese, but I do have a problem with those in charge of whatever race or religion, who claim to be honorable, when in fact they are obviously not.

I do not blame the Japanese per say, in fact it is very reassuring that some of the Japanese have enough honor to stand up to those in their government, who it appears have zero honor… proven by their obvious lies about their on going murdering of Whales being ‘scientific research’.

These are highly intelligent and very social animals, and to have that smug so and so, Joji Morishita, from the Japanese delegation at the recent Chillian International Whaling Commission, liken the murdering whales to the slaughter of cattle… an animal of little intelligence and social awareness, well it goes beyond the pale and there is not anything honorable about someone who persists with their claim of scientific research, an honorable person or country would not hide behind lies Joji Morishita.

Gore Vidal on the Democrats and religion

Video: The Real News

I am a fan of Gore Vidal, which I may or may not have said before. I love the idea of the majority of people at his talks, applauding the idea of taxing the churches. For some years I’ve tried, unsuccessfully, to get clubs and sporting organizations to have themselves made into religions… so they can have the tax free benefits of churches.

My point was and is, using the church’s business plan as a templet, I can’t see how the authorities could get away with denying a claim for instance, that a Skydiving club’s not engaged in worshiping a Skygod of some sort… I’d create a mythology of talking birds, commandments written on clouds etc. to pad out the theology and I’d do my very best to look like a pope when questioned about the validity of our religion.

Homeland Security Checkpoint

Video: YouTube

This video shows how close the US is to being a police state. The lesson to be learnt from this video, is to record all dealings with authorities.

Here’s what I think, if it looks like the Neocons are going to lose control of the US government, they will use the Patriot act somehow to keep power… or they will pull another WMD on Iran this time. For the record, the fundamentalist government in Iran will eventually; if they are left alone, self destruct, since most Iranians, like the Iraqis are reasonable and intelligent, as apposed to most fundamentalist, whether they be Islamic, Hindu, Zionists or Christian, they are by the nature of their religions, unbelievably Stupid and totally Ignorant.
