Government Lies: the So-called "Recovery"

Just amazing the amount of bollocks that's being touted around by complicit media stooges saying the depression is now over and we're now in some kind of miraculous "recovery".

Absolute craven tosh. This thing has hardly begun yet. The Big Collapse is still proceeding apace. Inflation is finally working through the system, so we're getting price increases again, and increasing stock market, etc, etc, and the media bangs on crowing how brilliant this all is - a bit like saying the fire of Rome was good for keeping us all nice and warm, or starvation's fine cos we could all do to lose a bit of weight. Asinine nonsense.

Next up we're seeing the Option ARM and Alt-A mortgage crisis during the course of this year, which will make subprime seem like a cakewalk. Sovereign debt crisis, when the smoke and mirrors don't work any more - collapse of the pound and likely the dollar. Massive inflation, wiping out everyone's savings. Exchange controls. Repatriation of silver and gold. Unemployment (the *real* unemployment, not the "actively seeking work and receiving benefit" bollocks they try and palm us off with) about to really kick-in and exceed 20%. It won't be soup kitchens this time - it'll be "vouchers". The banks are still hiding their insolvency; the next laugh is that they're going to want more, MUCH more. Governments are printing money; the rest of us are being told by a corrupt media that we should all stick our heads in the sand because it's all getting much better, when in fact it's steadily getting MUCH worse, and these bastards in charge are making it so in exchange for stuffing their pockets and buying some short-term political gain.

Amazing how much bullshit the media talk. Either they're as corrupt and self-serving as the government and banksters, or they're terrified of what they can see and determined to spout propaganda in the vain hope some hapless prole swallows it and maybe - just maybe - if we all wish hard enough the Bad Man might leave us alone.

We're fed up of your lies. We've seen this coming for years, and so far it's all playing out according to plan. Thankfully, we no longer have to rely on you media "experts" for our information... "Jobless recovery"? Arse...

UK Election Campaign - Government ups "terror level"

"Terrorist attack is highly likely" claim marks start of UK election campaign.

Yup, it's election time again - and just like clockwork the security services have raised the terror alert to make sure everyone is suitably frightened. Also, BAE Systems (you know - the ones who took all those Saudi bribes which we're not allowed to investigate because of national security?) have landed a big contract to spy on the British population in their back gardens using remote surveillance drones, so there's plenty of reason to ramp up the fearmongering there too.

Imagine - 9 years and Osama Bin Laden apparently still alive. Isn't it good the government is spending our taxes on spying on us? Maybe he's hiding in someone's garden shed in Surbiton?

Freedom of Speech includes those we despise

Today, the Home Secretary is ready to ban a provocative anti-war march in Wootton Basset, reports the Daily Mail and other press organs.

Remember this day. Voltaire once said, "I do not agree with a word you say, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it". Today that principle died in the UK. For years we've accepted provocative marches like the Orange men, CND, BNP, whatever, as the price to pay for living in a liberal democracy. Today, thanks to lots of jingoist, outraged fear and loathing propaganda and Daily Mail bigotry, we've given up yet another of our civil liberties.

Here's what Chomsky says: "If you believe in freedom of speech, you believe in freedom of speech for views you don't like. Stalin and Hitler, for example, were dictators in favor of freedom of speech for views they liked only. If you're in favor of freedom of speech, that means you're in favor of freedom of speech precisely for views you despise."

Freedoms are always hard-won, and easily lost. Here goes another one. Remember - the next time you want to protest, or exercise your freedom of speech, you may no longer be allowed...
