    OPPOSITION THINK WE ARE ASKING TOO MUCH


    Pic - thepunch.com.au
    I am seriously concerned about the dogmatic shift within the Liberal Party to a much harsher attitude to social services like pensions and all other forms of government funded help for our population. They have always been mean when in comes to supporting the poor, but now they reckon it is due to the fact that the baby Boomer proportion of the population is so large and that the largesse of Western populations...

    Chapter 26: They Died on our Watch

    By Father Bob ⋅ December 29, 2011



    Bit stunned with packing, sending to tip, storing and grieving. Nevertheless, time marches on. Gotta keep blogging to keep faith with those who’ve died for “the Cause.”

    In fact, in preparation for New Year, I’ve decided to reprint some of Chapter 26 of Ron Burrow’s book, “The Postie and the Priest”. It’s about a memorial service held in the parish garden every year on the anniversary of my arrival here, 14th September, and...

    METROPOL WALL FINALLY FINISHED


    The barricades should be taken away shortly from the Fitzroy Street and Canterbury Road junction. After 5 odd years the last of the 'pointing', filling the gaps in the rock wall, will be completed this week and traffic will be finally relieved of these obstructions. Job well done by the contractors too, I.G. Parker, once they got into the work it came together very quickly and congratulations to our Ward Councillor, Serge Thomann for urging the ...

    GOB SMACKED AND BEWILDERED - ALLAN JONES MAKES SENSE

    TODAY WAS A REVELATION


    Alan Jones, as a journalist, I have always found to be antagonistic to most of my ways of thinking, projecting an abusive right wing wipe off to any thought stream that didn't suit his employer's agenda, an absolute tool of his editorial boss' puppeteered agenda to present him as an 'Independent' voice.

    His speech today to the Press Club was one of the best delivered, most eloquent, sequentially informative discourses about the potential that

    PEACE WARRIOR - OCCUPY NEW YORK

    US MARINE STANDS DOWN NY POLICE

    This is one of the most powerful pieces of vision I have seen in a long, long time. One man standing up and dispersing bullies that were randomly attacking their own population. I have big hopes that our police accept what is going on as a peaceful process. If people break the peace and shit starts, turn your back, don't gawk and get involved, it is either a set up or some dysfunctional acting out, let the police protect you here......

  • The Songs of Robert Lloyd at Holy Trinity Church
    by Mick Pacholli


    MelbourneEast Arts Festival


    Robert Lloyd has served the Australian and International Arts/Music world since 1986. Beginning in Adelaide he has travelled the world performing and composing his unique music and songs.

    I have a couple of Robert’s albums but have seen little of him live so it was wonderful to be invited to see his performance at Holy Trinity Church in East Melbourne, a show that is part of the MelbourneEast Arts Festival.

  • Democracy and the financial markets
    by Mick Pacholli

    Pic - Wikipedia

    President of Iceland Olafur Ragnar Grimsson identifies that it is a sane choice by nations to protect their democracies by simply allowing the banks to crash and default the payment of loans due to the IMF and simply rebuild their countries from the ground up.

    After suffering IMF debts that were 10 times their national GDP, when the GFC hit, unlike Australia, Iceland's banks went crashing down in tune with the EU.

    by Mick Pacholli

    Pic courtesy http://www.haaretz.com

    To take this idea of Crowd Sourced Democracy and apply it to Australia isn't as far fetched as we may think.

    We all identify as Australians, whether from the far east, west, north or south, and every bit in the middle of this country. Our geological wealth is being sucked out of the country with relatively poor returns to the national coffers and our economy is tortured by global financial and economic organisations that would

    'POPCORN' under fire - at last!



    The redlight camera on the corner of Lakeside Drive and Fitzroy Street has finally come to the attention of the authorities in realation to its massive revenue. Warrigal/Batesford Roads intersection also concerns traffic camera commissioner Gordon Lewis. He notes that this is not uncommon in 40km an hour zones preceding the red light camera.
