United States! A Nation Of Imaginary Millionaires!

Tea Party Supporter

If you where to look at America with no social experience of the country but just knowledge of the economic policies supported by the American people you would come to one conclusion only and that is that every person in the United States is a millionaire give or take 1 or 2 people, what other reason could it be for them to support such policies like the privatization of health, education, housing and so on, the non support for a truly national labor union , the lack of social welfare to help the poorest? The only reason people would support these policies if they are educated rich people looking out for their own interests! So is every American a millionaire? of course not, in fact most Americans are struggling to survive on the low incomes of working class people in the United States. So why do they,not all but most, support policies which goes against their interest? and in fact plunges them deeper into poverty by having to pay more in tax, pay for health or the education of their children in privately owed institutions which should be under the control of the government and used to serve the people with the tax money they pay.

The Tea-Party for example, although I am far from agreeing with their policies, I do have sympathy with the ordinary legitimately concerned tea partier. They do have legitimate concerns, Ok so they might not be the most politically knowledgeable bunch but their concerns are real and legitimate But here is where it turns sour, the feelings of these concerned working and middle class people has being hijacked by the corporate US libertarian sector such as families like the hugely wealthy and powerful Koch Brothers, The libertarian sector of the US corporate system supports pure laissez-faire economics, ie. th total deregulation of the markets to be run without government involvement, they want the privatization of literally everything from health care to housing to education, national security, the judicial system everything so what these wealthy US Libertarians done was when the republican grassroots who felt neglected by the system came together under the name of The Tea Party they took advantage of their growing fears in order to stop Obama policies of regulation of the economy and social ownership of the health system, And it was easy for them all they had to do was pump millions into propaganda, lies, fear mongering, and all other tactics of twisting the facts in order to seduce the middle class and working class republicans into their support for libertarian-capitalist economics.

An easy fear that they preyed on was the fear of Obama that exists in the grassroots of republican support, they pumped propaganda to the people about how Obama was anti-american and an Arab possibly even a Muslim undercover, seriously many tea partiers believed this, they would be walking around with contradictory signs saying “damn socialism, keep you hands of my medicare”. This is a major fear these people have, socialism, how could working people and middle class people be so misinformed about socialism that they thinks it’s not in their favor when in fact it’s totally in their favor? simple answer really propaganda and misinformation, if you want to discredit the great name of socialism just refer to so-called socialists like Stalin or Mao or soviet union and to apolitical people it works straight away, but to people who know any politics they will know Stalin, Lenin and the rest of the so-called communists where right-wing in everything they done, the only communist thing about them was the miss-titled name of their political party.

And this type of preying on legitimate fears of working Americans to support policy not in their favor is conducted by both the republican and democrats with help of both their buddies in the corporate privately owned media outlets in the US. The news is guilty as much as politicians for corrupting the minds of citizens they help distort the reality of Washington policy in order to try make it look attractive to the citizens who would naturally oppose it if they knew any better.

Lets look at Heath care for example, in most European countries every citizen is entitled to free public health care of the highest standard, it’s so free even if an illegal immigrant needed care off, in most European countries they would be taken care of by a doctor in any hospital. If you asked the politically more aware populations of Europe if they wanted to privatize health care they would laugh at you, and no distorting the facts or propaganda would make them think any different, to them it is simply ‘why pay more when you already pay for it with your tax’. But in the US when Obama and the democrats try introduce a similar system of public health care the ordinary people who can’t get it otherwise resist it ? why would they resist healthcare being offered for free? simple because a campaign of miss-information, propaganda and complete lies directed by the republican corporate owned politicians who would rather them citizens pay than live .

Americans need to wake up and realize all the tax they pay is meant to be spent by the government on such things like giving them free health care, free education, social welfare and so on, instead what they don’t realize is their taxes is going to building new technology infrastructure and so on that can then be giving to the private sector to make a profit on, such as government paid programmes in weapons technology that is commissioned to companies like Halliburton who then make hundreds of billions of dollars on the back of taxpayers money, the make billions while the ordinary taxpayer left to fork out even more money for their health care and education which they should have already paid for with their taxes.

The system in the US needs to change as one TV host said before “Americans need to stop denying their love of socialism”. Socialism and policies not supported by the US government is in their favor and not the corporate policies they currently are seduced into supporting.

Maybe we should have taking that 400 billion dollars used to bail out private banks and insurance companies and used it instead to help deprived neglected communities, maybe build schools and hospitals in these area and employ local workers, not only will you be helping the poor with health and education but also you will be giving them jobs and more money to make their lives better, and when they have more money they will spend more which maybe would stimulate the economy more than squandering 400 billion to unaccountable oligarchy’s

Israel and Iran Who Is More Dangerous to World Peace?

Netanyahu & Obama

Israel, the land of justice?, a land created to stop the atrocities suffered by the jewish people over centuries, a land we are told is a democracy, a land we are told by the mainstream is a paradise of morality, justice, equality and freedom! Yes that is correct to the cave dwelling neo-cons and ignoramus mainstream pro-Israeli academics in the US and Israel. we are told constantly by the propaganda machine that is western mainstream news outlets that Israel is the victim of Arab terrorism and what is poor Israel to do but defend itself?, I am so fed up with hearing this especially at this time since Israel is now planing an imminent attack on Iran, we are falsely told that Iran is the aggressor and Israel merely the nice kid protecting himself from the big bad iranian school bully, let’s be honest the aggressor in this case is Israel it is not Iran, I ask you name one incident where Iranian ministers have said they will attack Israel? name one Iranian minister who met with Obama to plan and discuss a potential attack on Israel? name one Iranian minister that sanctioned Iranian spies to go into Israel to assassinate its scientist through terrorist means like the use of a car bomb or unmanned drones ? the fact is you wont find anything of the sort and yes Israel is guilty of all these actions of which Iran is innocent off.

For the Past 2 or 3 or more years the chief war monger in the world Benjamin Netanyahu has strolled his way around the corrupt halls of Washington sneakily and inhumanely gathering the support from the washington lot for his craving for war, after years, decades actually, of supporting the brutal treatment of the occupied Palestinian people, Netanyahu wants MORE, oh yes he wants a lot more, so much more that now he wants to bomb the “sand” out of Iran. Netanyahu does not care for the consequences of such an action and the massive loss of INNOCENT life that could happen if such an idea where to become reality, all he cares about is power, power over Israel, power of the arab world and influence in the wider world, Netanyahu is not a stupid man he has an IQ of 157+ allegedly, any man with an IQ level that high must understand what a war with Iran could spring up, we are not five-year old children playing with toy soldiers, we are not ancient kings playing war on a chess board we are talking about real War, where thousands if not hundreds of thousands of men women and children all of whom are innocent will die, am I the only person in this god forsaken world who boils with anger at the thought of these sleazy, inhuman, rich, out of touch politicians playing war with my life ?? Enough is enough Israel must be put in its place and told to get of the road to lunacy it is on.

I’m going to soften on the personal outrage as it might take away credibility of my argument but please understand why i get so personal, it is WAR after all.

I want to look at the myths and fear mongering the politicians and the media have spouted about Iran in the last 3 years or so to amp up support for war on Iran. then I will go onto “If Iran is not a threat why does the US and Israel want war with Iran?”

Firstly to the myths and the hypocrisy that surround the myths.The main myth and basically the only reason we are giving for a potential war with Iran is the myth than Iran either has or is in the process of developing a nuclear “weapons”,  so let us look at the use of such a myth by Washington and Tel-Aviv and whether the myth is true or not.

In 2009 on the day he was sworn in as prime minister of Israel, Benjamin told Jeffery Goldberg of The Atlantic newspaper that “The Obama presidency has two great missions: fixing the economy, and preventing Iran from gaining nuclear weapons,” after stating it would be a “failure of western civilization to allow Iran to develop Nuclear weapons” he continued with his old right-wing fear mongering propaganda by saying “You don’t want a messianic apocalyptic cult controlling atomic bombs. When the wide-eyed believer gets hold of the reins of power and the weapons of mass death, then the entire world should start worrying, and that is what is happening in Iran.”, so here we come across our first use of the myth by Netanyahu whilst PM, since then this myth has being so forcefully rammed down our throats by the private mainstream news that it is widely but ignorantly believed to be fact, but ask yourself  is Iran developing nuclear weapons? the plain and simple fact is no , ok so you don’t believe me ? How about the US intelligence sector which includes the CIA and all other intelligence branches who said  in a report issued by the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) in November 2007 that Iran has not got an active Nuclear weapons programme, and they reaffirmed this position in the NIE 2010. you might now be saying hold on recent reports this week from Israeli media are saying the NIE has told Obama that Iran has made “substantial progress towards developing nuclear weapons”, but ask yourself who is saying this? it is from Israeli media, so what does Washington and the Whitehouse national security council say? they came out a day after Israeli media made such claims and said, according to the national security council spokesperson “We believe that there is time and space to continue to pursue a diplomatic path, backed by growing international pressure on the Iranian government the spokesman said, he added “We continue to assess that Iran is not on the verge of achieving a nuclear weapon.”  also according to James Clapper the US director of national intelligence in his January congressional testimony  “We assess Iran is keeping open the option to develop nuclear weapons, in part by developing various nuclear capabilities that better position it to produce such weapons, should it choose to do so. We do not know, however, if Iran will eventually decide to build nuclear weapons.” the director of national intelligence saying himself there is no weapons and no plan as of yet to develop any nuclear weapon programme, (I will get onto the nuclear activities of Iran of which James Clapper mentions later in the article)

Do you want more findings, how about the IAEA report of 2012 which said that prior to 2003 Iran had some activities “which were relevant” to developing a nuclear device, and that it is involved in activities that contradicts its obligations BUT the IAEA said it found no hard evidence of activity towards the actual development of a Nuclear device

There is much more evidence to back the fact Iran has no programme to develop nuclear devices, all intelligence agencies from the CIA to Mossad who both were reported by US Intelligence officials in march of this year as agreeing that Iran has no programme to develop a nuclear device.

The hypocrisy of Israel claiming it must stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons is the fact Israel has hundreds of illegally held nuclear weapons, they are illegal because Israel refuses to sing up-to the nuclear non-proliferation act

This evidence by all intelligence agencies should simply show that the myth we are told for war with Iran is simply that a “myth” and we should not be going to war on a “myth” look where Iraq got us.

So what has Iran got in nuclear terms if not weapons? Iran has the capabilities and is developing nuclear “energy”, not “weapons but energy, I am not going to get into much on the energy front because I feel it is irrelevant to this situation since first they are permitted to by the UN under certain circumstances, one being to make no moves towards activities of developing nuclear weapons, and secondly  it is because we are told the basis of war is to stop Iran developing Nuclear “weapons” not energy.

If Iran does not have a nuclear weapons programme then why does Netanyahu want war with them? Simple, as all western supported overthrows in the middle east, it is for a few things actually, First it is for Israel to show the Arabs who is boss, after all Israel cannot have a country like Iran becoming too influential especially with the wars raging in Iraq, Afghanistan and the rest of the secret wars in the arab world, why does it fear Iranian influence and power in the region? simple a stronger Iran with wider influence in the Middle East threatens American and Israeli dominance over the region and its resources, and at a time when the people of various Arab nations are freeing themselves after decades of dictatorship this fear of Iranian influence over these newly formed ruling classes such as Egypt and Libya, becomes even more worrying to US and its client state Israel. Another reason Israel is pushing for war with Iran is the Palestinian question, Israel fears Iranian influence and support given to the Palestinian resistance in the occupied territories, Israel under Netanyahu has no intention of agreeing to a two-state solution and fears Israel being forced into accepting the resolution under pressure from a rising Iranian influence.

There is no big mystery or altruist argument for the potential war with Iran it is simply just Israel with the support of the US upholding its brutal dominance over the middle east and the riches that come from the control over the regions resources.

I will finish by saying that Israel much be put in its place by the US and International community and warned off attacking Iran and starting a potentially lethal war that could take the lives of un-imaginable numbers of people all innocent me women and children who are so young they haven’t even realized they are Iranian or Israeli yet if a war begins they could die because of that simple fact, The US and Israel have already destroyed the lives of countless Arab people which has resulted in blow-back like 9/11 Al-Qaeda and the rise of extreme Islam in the Arab world, pursuing another mindless war will only push the world into continued instability and extremism of which Israel and the US claim they are fighting but who create the extremism through their policies.

Iran is not the aggressor Israel and the US are the aggressors and the evidence shows that to be factual and not just and figment of my imagination.

Syrians, Occupiers And The Propaganda Campaign

Whats the difference between Syrian protestors and the occupy movement? the answer is not much, there is no fundamental difference between the two, apart from the fact that one group is operating in an arab nation which is pro-iran and an enemy of the US, and the other is a group operating in the worlds foremost superpower the US, you see the reason the Syrian revolution is called a revolution while the occupiers are called lunatics is simple, its called propaganda, only propaganda can turn a complicated civil-war in Syria into a united revolution, and only propaganda can turn a movement of thousands of working people like Occupy into a movement of lunatics and rapists alcoholics

First lets look at Syria and how propaganda has turned a historical ethnic and religious divide into a spontaneous revolution of the people, Syria is a nation divided on tribal lines, now the country is being led by Bashar Al-Assad who hails from the Alawi religious/ethnic group, he came to power in 2000 after succeeding his father Havez Al-Assad who ruled for 29 years.

His father rose to power in the 70s and purged the Syrian Ba’ath party in order to effectively  have an Alawi ruled Syria, this understandably created tension among other tribes who had lost power and influence in Syria, so ever since then there has being political dissesnt and protest in Syria in order to overthrow the Alawis and install some other tribe to power, and the current Syrian uprising is just the continuation of such political dissent, it is not a revolution in the western sense, as in it is not a united people fighting to overthrow one regime to install a regime of equality, instead it is a civil-war where you have many ethnic and religious groups  fighting to gain power for their group.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    So how on earth do people in the west believe the Syrian uprising is a spontaneous revolution by a united people to gain freedom from a horrible government? it is simple, the reason western citizens believe such complete nonsense is because of propaganda, the west is the most propagandized place on earth and America is the most propagandized nation in modern history a lot more so than nazi germany. Through a media technique that arose in the 70s/80s and called the propaganda model, Americans have become completely under the influence of propaganda created by the elitists to dumb people down so that the élite sector can go about its darker activities without the fear of  public interest in what they do, for example in a 2006 Harris interactive poll 50% of americans polled believed Saddam had WMDs, another HI poll in 2006 said 64% of Americans believed Saddam Hussein had strong links to al-Qaeda, one more recent example found that 22% of america actually believe Saddam planned 9/11.

How can so many people believe such obvious lies ? again it is mass propaganda that is conducted by profit-first news channels who all go along with what politicians and the business sector want them to say. The reason the west and mainly the US does not want its citizens knowing the truth about the history of these middle east uprisings is because it fears americans and westerners in general will become aware of the long and mostly brutal western political and business involvement in the political and social life of numerous MENA countries. so instead of the political and financial élite telling the truth of the arab uprisings instead what they do is get their media buddies to broadcast black and white propaganda that makes the civil-war in Syria out to be a spontaneous revolution, this technique of historical revisionism not only distracts the population at home from past american involvement but it also creates a surge of support for new american military activity in the MENA region, and of course western politicians love to jump at any chance they get to increase their influence over third world countries.

Now lets look at the occupy movement and how propaganda by a profit first media has turned a legitimate political movement of concerned young and old people into a movement of crackpot rapists. The answer to such a smear is that the US media and other privately owned profit first news channels in the west media have completely set out from the start to smear the Occupy movement, for the simple reason that the people who own and make a profit out of the corporate media are part of the 1% that the occupy movement is fighting against, they are part of the capitalist system that most occupiers oppose, they are the enemy of the occupiers so why would the enemy of the movement broadcast positive news coverage and information on it? it would be complete stupidity for mainstream news and financial institutions to support a movement that wants to overthrow the system they currently profit from. The élite in politics, media and business fear the population becoming aware of their activities and that’s why since the 50s they have conducted a propaganda campaign to misinform the public in order to pacify a natural tendency to revolt, and the current negative coverage and misinformation on the occupy movement is just another example of the establishment trying to tame as Noam Chomsky calls “the great beast”, the public.

You see the Occupy movement is a movement not of lunatic alcoholic crackpots, it is a movement of educated and concerned citizens that include factory workers, builders, students, professors, and people from all walks of life that are concerned about their children, their rights, their freedom, they are concerned about the victims of american policy, they are not lunatics but rational compassionate people, after all they have had highly regarded supporters and speakers from such fields as economics, political science, history philosophy and journalism, from Amy Goodman to Norman Finkelstein, Steve Keen and even Chomsky. How can a movement which gets support from such figures be ignored by the mainstream as lunatic? the answer again is propaganda, the establishment wont support it because if it does then the majority of hard-working people in the west will support it and this will eventually lead to a political shift in power and economics that will affect their own interests politically and financially so the obvious thing for these media elitists to do is smear the legitimate concerns of working people in order to uphold their own grip on power that would be destroyed if occupy got its way.

Remember the difference between Syrian protestors and occupy protestors, is that Syrians have western propaganda on their side while occupiers have it against them, and it is hell of a lot easier to overthrow a corrupt regime when you have such propaganda and military power on your side. The media should stop being hypocrites again by supporting Syrian and arab protestors while at the same time denouncing their own concerned citizens who have the courage and dedication to get out on the streets and protest against the greed and abuse of power by figures in the politics, finance and media and to rightfully oppose violations of their political and economic rights.We need to look past the obvious propaganda that is out to strip citizens of their right to protest and their right to truth, we need to be rational when looking at such situations because we all know if the occupy movement happened in an arab country then the US and Its media mouthpieces would be openly supporting it as a “democratic revolution by the ordinary people” its just when the revolution affects their interest that they don’t support it.

How Obama Hijacked The Wave Of Change

It was a cold day in the Capitol when Barack Obama the son of an American mother and an African father, was inaugurated as the 44th president of the United States, after a year of brutal campaigning first for the democratic nomination then for the presidential nomination Barack Obama became the first African-American US president, sweeping to victory on a message of HUGE “change”.

But did Obama, the man who became the American symbol of change and people power actually have anything to do with creating that grassroots movement of political change? or did Obama just ride to victory on a wave of other Peoples hard work?

There are political activists and intellectuals in America who have spent between 20-50 years building a grassroots movement of educating and getting people politically informed and active in the process and of creating a feeling of social and political change, all this grassroots work came together between 2006-2008 when after the worlds economies went into turmoil and millions of people where left unemployed, homeless, hungry and so on, societies wanted change and Americans wanted change, within weeks of the American economy crashing the number of people becoming involved in grassroots community organizations sky rocketed, you had people refusing to be evicted from their homes, you had workers taking control of their factories after their bosses went bust and tried to fire them, you had people rightly refusing to pay such loans to banks that failed, there was definitely a feeling of political change about to come, suddenly Americans had awoken from their political slumber and where now no longer going to let Uncle Sam walk all over them.

All this seemed like the people wanted America back, then sudden it was announced that an Illinois senator Barack Obama would try get the democratic nomination for president, on hearing this for the first time the American news media outlets like MSNBC, CNN and the rest of them done what the mouthpiece of any capitalist society would do, it took its opportunity, knowing quite well the overwhelming sense of change in the population and looking for a way to stop the people going too far left or right in politics, they made Obama the focus of politics by championing the idea of America having Its first black president, here was the media and establishments way of saying to the people “you want political change? Then vote Obama and you get the first black president”, it was a clear slap on the face to people who had worked so hard to get people politically educated and involved, Here was their hard work being hijacked by news outlets to uphold the current system of politics, and Obama’s team like any “smart” political team would do, is they seen this opportunity to also hijack the feeling of change, Obama crew just one day appeared and made themselves leaders of a movement they hand no hand in creating, they tried to make Obama out to be a good liberal social worker, but let’s be honest Obama only done 3 years working in a poor area of Chicago and it was simply pack his résumé so he could get into Harvard.

And now that he has hijacked somebody else’s hard work and being elected as a “change” politician he thinks he actually done something , Obama actually thinks he created a movement of change in people when in fact he just rode the wave of a movement created by working people over decades of abuse by the system he fully supports.

Mitt Romneys Presidential Addiction

What’s up with Mitt Romney’s craving to be president ? Why does he so desire to such a position? It is funny and sad, to watch Mitt be so obsessed with one thing the last ten years or more that is to become master of masters king of kings the President of the United states.

Is this wanting for such a position of power simply a case of billionaire looking to spend his money on something or is it darker is it a case of an ultra-competitive capitalist billionaire who seeks power satisfy his compulsive need for competition ? There is an old saying “you shouldn’t trust someone who wants power” ! Well Mitt Romney is more Ryan just wanting power he is craving it like a drug addict craves their drug of choice, in 2008 Romney spent millions to get the Republican nomination and failed, but unlike most people who would have given up after months of bitterness, hard work, personal attacks and financial losses, Mitt Romney decided he wanted to run again in 2012 and spend millions more to be elected and drag himself and his family through what will be a bitter campaign , and I ask all this for what ? The answer is so Mitt can satisfy his need for power and be top dog.
And as Mitt gets a step closer to the presidency you can see it in his face the smile gets more real , the craving to please everyone softens and the diplomatic attack ad Mitt comes out to play.

Should a man who strives so hard for power be trusted? Ask yourself come the election is mitt for the people or himself and his Crony-capitalist friends in the business sector and the halls of Washington!

The Ignorance Of Being Anti-LGBT

Article In Defence Of LGBT Rights

It’s being a few months since New York legislators’ passed into law the full recognition and legalisation of same-sex marriage, This has resulted in a new international enthusiasm amongst the LGBT community and support groups to pressure world governments into legalising same-sex marriage and other rights that are denied to the LGBT community like the illegality in most nations if not all, of homosexual and bisexual men donating blood or the institutionalised Homophobia that persists in most nations education system, Military, Politics, Media and so on. In this article I will be venting my views on the Bigots, The liars and the misled whose ignorance collaborates to discriminate against me and other members of the LGBT community. I will also give my short opinion on where we have gone wrong in our struggle and what we should do to advance our cause.

I like a lot of LGBT people are annoyed every time I turn on my TV or read a newspaper and see some ignorant politician or social commentator giving the impression that I am inferior to them because I refuse to accept violations of my human rights, What right has anyone in society got to tell another member of society that they are inferior because they refuse to accept violations of their individual rights? , These ignorant baboons openly promote hatred and ignorance towards LGBT people by saying we are a threat to society because if we are allowed to marry we will damage heterosexual marriage which will ultimately destroy the morality of society! I know I know, It’s almost hard to keep a straight face when you read that but it is true, just look at what the Pope said last year in relation to same-sex marriage being a threat to creation “Creatures differ from one another and can be protected, or endangered, in different ways, as we know from daily experience. One such attack comes from laws or proposals which, in the name of fighting discrimination, strike at the biological basis of the difference between the sexes,”. This is a man who heads an international organisation that over the centuries has, raped, murdered, abused and tortured an unknown number of women and children in its “care”, and the Pope has personally being involved with covering up abuse in German dioceses during the 80s, but for some weird reason he is seen by the establishment as a credible social and moral commentator who is only giving a “philosophical” view , but that is not the real problem , what the real problem is , is that a huge number of people look to this man for guidanceso when he says same-sex marriage is a threat to humanity some people in power and in the public believe it to be true so ultimately stand in the way of equality and human-rights, but they don’t see the illegalization of same-sex marriage and other LGBT rights as violations of Human rights because as I said at the start there still exists in most countries a system of institutionalized homophobia , whereas from childhood you are made to believe that any sexual orientation other than heterosexuality is abnormal and sick, even though science has shown this not to be the case.

In America we have right wing religious nut cases that in some political sections even call for LGBT people to be giving therapy to “straighten them out”, take the uneducated bigot that is Tea Party Presidential Candidate Michelle Bachman, whom up till a few weeks ago was one of the favourites to beat Barack Obama, she along with her “closeted homosexual” husband Marcus, run a clinic in their hometown that openly admits to performing therapy on LGBT people in order conform them to “heterosexual ways”. Here is a quote from Michelle Bachman in relation to LGBT people“Little children will be forced to learn that homosexuality is normal and natural and perhaps they should try it.”, This is an exact quote from a person who could possibly become the most powerful person in the worldYet she openly promotes violations of her own citizens rights because she believes their human rights is against her religious beliefs , even though anyone who reads the bible will find Jesus Christ never mentioned homosexuality once, the Christian views on homosexuality where devised between 200-400AD By men who never knew Jesus and took the Roman Empires view against homosexuality which was the ideology at that time.

In my home country of Ireland it was illegal to be LGBT up until 1993 after the government was forced to decriminalize same sex relations after human rights activist David Norris won a 1988 court case against the Irish governments illegalization of same-sex relations, now 18 years later the man who made it legal to be gay in Ireland is favourite to be elected President of Ireland, Proof we have come a long way but we still have a way to go, it is still illegal for same-sex marriage , it is still illegal for gay or bisexual men to donate blood because of possible sexually transmitted disease, even though scientific research has proven this to be a false belief and that it is possible for gay and bisexual men to donate blood as long as they have not had sexual intercourse in 6weeks. This scientific fact has resulted in Britain legalising gay and bisexual blood donations from people void of sex for 2 months. Imagine this, as an Irish citizen if my mother or any other family member was terminally ill and required a blood transfusion from me, I would not be allowed, because I am gay, so ultimately if I am the only person with the same type Blood then the terminally ill relative will be left to die by the system because the establishment thinks my blood is filthy and refuses to open its ignorant eyes to reality and award me rights I shouldn’t be forced to fight for.

It is illegal in most countries for LGBT couples to adopt children as a couple, a violation of the right to parenthood. This policy is upheld by twisting facts to present an argument that LGBT couples are a danger to young children and that children of a LGBT relationship will grow up to be mentally disturbed. Both these ludicrous claims are complete falsehoods created to smear and deny the human rights of LGBT people, It is well accepted amongst social intellects that children of LGBT couples are in less danger than that of heterosexual couples, It is also accepted that the mental state of adolescent children in LGBT family’s is more stable and happy than that of children of heterosexual couples.

The reality is that the majority of all western societies are fully tolerant of LGBT rights, but it is the elite in society who constantly deny our rights, From politicians to church leaders to mainstream media they all collaborate to manipulate democracy so that the views of the majority of the public are ignored in favour of an elitist view that is presented as the voice of the majority but in reality is the voice of the bigoted minority, If citizens had any control over their societies then LGBT rights would be guaranteed long ago, It is time that all progressive and public organisations, LGBT and heterosexual unite to pressurise world governments into accepting the majority view and normalize the public’s view LGBT sexual orientation, Because as long as we criminalize certain aspects of the LGBT lifestyle then we are telling society it is okay to be ignorant and hateful towards LGBT people. This kind of isolation and demonization over the decades has resulted in hundreds of young people committing suicide believing it to be the only way to escape the constant bullying that persists in all societies because of institutionalized discrimination, this outdated policy has also resulted in hundreds of people being murdered, injured, humiliated etc. All because they were born with a sexual orientation that is not the accepted orientation of heterosexuality, which the establishment has persisted in stating is the only natural orientation even though scientific research has proven this to be a falsehood. We need to stand up and not ask nicely or beg for our rights but demand our rights, for too long members of the LGBT community have faced unnecessary and illegal violations of our rights and still we stand quietly hoping that manners will get us our rights, false, We need to start a real grassroots political movement that 365 days a year lobby’s for the rights of LGBT members, Gay Pride is all well and good for enjoying ourselves but it won’t get us our rights, because it is a week of celebrations that once over, results in LGBT concerns fading into the background like any other political deviant to the establishment fades into the background after it makes a short point, As I said we need a REAL dedicated, radical activist movement that every day of the year pressures the government on LGBT rights, We need more open LGBT members in government advocating our rights, We as a unit are a powerful political and social force and we must realise this, If we all united under the one political banner I can guarantee you that every political party will come to us begging for our political support through votes in return for our rights, The LGBT community has many ways to use its power to guarantee our rights but still we have not bothered to use our best weapons, instead we use gay pride, and although I am not complaining about pride and I think it is a great fun expression of our community, I am saying that it won’t get us our rights, a few floats, drag queens and men dressed ultra-camp will not convince any government or public to legalise LGBT rights instead I believe it discredits our cause by portraying the LGBT in a overtly stereotypical way,We need to start being serious in our fight for equality , we can no longer go around portraying a stereotype that the elitists use to discredit our case in the eyes of the public. A system of pure political activism should be the way, led by LGBT and heterosexual people united in the name of equality just like black and white were united in the civil rights movement of the 60s, It is only then when we are portrayed as serious activists and bring our fight to the top that we will win our rights, and that day hopefully will be soon because as I write this people around the globe are starting to put their activism into serious powerful LGBT political organisations, and with a new found enthusiasm since the New York legalization we can now begin to look forward to the day when we are recognised as equal citizens in all aspects. Just let’s hope it’s soon or else!!

The Osama Files. How Obama Created A Conspiracy

President Obama announces death of Bin Laden

The conspiracy theorists have being going wild the past few months and I don’t blame them.

On May 2nd 2011 one of the great conspiracy theories of the century was created, it all happened after President Barack Obama announced he would not be providing pictures of a dead Osama Bin Laden the world’s most wanted man and leader of the Al-Qaeda terrorist organisation who since the late 90s had being in hiding from the US government, but it wasn’t till a dreadful day on September 11th 2001 when 2 hijacked aircraft’s crashed into the world trade centres and killed thousands of innocent people that Osama became known to the majority of the world and the hunt for him began.

For 10 years the world has wondered were Osama was and if he was still alive. Attempts were made to capture him in the mountains of Tora Bora in December 2001 but US forces failed to capture him. His location after the battle of Tora Bora became unknown and the search slowed down to near existence during the Bush administration. But after the election of Barack Obama a new search started with more vigour and determination to catch Osama (as we are made to believe). Then on May 2nd 2011 that search allegedly ended when news began to break around the world that Osama Bin Laden had being killed in a US military operation.

Immediately every news channel wondered if the United States would release images or video of the operation and a dead Osama. We all waited hours in my case till the early morning to see evidence of the death, we all had the thought of??”Surely they have to show evidence to prove to the world he is dead, after all its Osama Bin Laden”. Then the announcement came that the United States would not release pictures of a dead Osama and that Osama had being buried at sea an hour before the announcement. We were all shocked, how could you not show a picture of a dead Osama to prove he is dead?
This is when the conspiracy world went crazy and one of the great conspiracy theories was created because by not producing the evidence straight away Obama has forever made it impossible to produce credible proof that will end the conspiracy’s because to the conspiracy theorists you can’t trust the US with evidence for an hour in-case they Photoshop it so don’t worry about trusting the US with evidence for weeks, months and years.

The Osama death will forever be talked about in conspiracy terms like that of the death of Hitler or the shooting of JFK and to the more recent phenomenon of 9/11 conspiracy’s.
So remember May 2nd 2011 as the day the Osama conspiracy started.
