This cute little bird was happily perched on my motorcycle outside my motel room watching me pack.

Bloggin' quiet at the moment as you will have noticed. A few rather unpleasant days in my corner of the universe. Will be back into the swing of things tomorrow.
...and guess where's it's coming from nowadays? The far left of course.
Poor peacenicks. All that marching, all those banners, all that outraged howling. What was the result?
More penetrating war dialogue;
One of the "sins"
that damn Saddam Hussein is that he tried to assassinate a president of
the USA; George Bush snr.
Like the use of quotation marks on "sins".
When George Snr
went to the Gulf there was an alleged plan by Iraqis to
Awww, the poor guy
P'raps they got sick of him always calling Hussein "Saddem"!
This fella should
be writing for The Guardian.
Do you have serious reality issues? Do you secretly yearn for a new Joseph Stalin to come to power and cleanse the world of the stink of democracy and liberty? Then do we have the magazine for you!
Yes, from the just released new edition of Tyrant Lovers United;

that some lawyers and TV presenters get paid lots of money.
Back to Hugh Mackay then
Hughie has his auto-bullshit generator firing on all cylinders today. Australia's most desperately out-of-touch "social researcher" informs us that despite being a bunch of Howard-voting racist nazi greed-scum, we are now all (at the same time) apparently emerging from our apathy to embrace the anti-war movement, socialist economics and general touchy-feeliness.
Is this wanker confused or what? So keenly trying every week - despite painfully obvious evidence to the contrary - to convince himself that the ignorant masses for whom he has such contempt are emerging from their caves and are being converted to Hughie's own juvenile, pants-wetting leftism. So the anti-war protests are now a totally unified cry against the all-round capitalist horrors of Gulag Howard.
Mackay's been singing the same song since 1996. And Howard is still the Prime Minister and is miles ahead in the opinion polls. Good going Hugh, you've really got your finger on the pulse of the people there dude........
I'm still way behind on my e-mail. Will endeavour to catch up fully this weekend. Thanks to all who have written in. The correspondence I get is fantastic.
Say hello to Frozen in Montreal.
This is strangely spooky and mesmerising.
Say hi to Kikkoman. No, I don't understand what's going on either.
Just because the Spartacists
march in your rally and hold up signs supporting North Korea doesnt
mean anyone else believes in their twisted cause. But mass movements have
a way of being hijacked by the ardent few, the ones who are damned dead
serious about overturning the established order and oiling up the guillotine
to deal with the undecided. Their work is made easier by comfortable dilettantes
who think its funny to call Bush a Nazi - or who march without comment
beside someone who does.
Fellow Canberra libertarian John Humphreys doesn't much care for my recent opinions of last weekend's anti-war marches.
As I argue in my
response, John's protest seems to rest on his overly defensive assumption
that his own sensible anti-war arguments (and those of other libertarians)
can be lumped in with those of the "chanting + banners = truth"
crowd, and the bizarre assertion that calling that particular crowd on
their mad ravings is somehow dismissive of serious debate. I ask:
what 'serious debate' is that crowd capable of engaging in?
Q: What would the
French call a nuclear weapon going off in downtown Paris?

Jimmy Carter that is. These thick-headed lefty goons are practically creaming their pants in this barf-inducing editorial;
Can you feel the stomach-churning lurrrrve?
Some great images of the weekend's marching nutters.

Funniest thing I've
seen in weeks.
Seems hypocrite scumbucket Jacques Chirac is outraged that those arrogant little Eastern Europeans just aren't behaving European enough.
Gosh darn it, the EUnuchs won't be able to waffle about unilateralism anymore with these uncooperative little bastards running around......................
Oh, but we all know
it's the Americans who are the bullies....right?
Penny must have been reading my mind. It used to be I was glued to
the TV when this show was on, but I can't even be bothered switching on
to new episodes anymore. It's time for this show to check out.
Q: Whats the difference
between snow and french soldiers?

Just listened to the Late Night Live "lefties discuss war" show. One of the guests - NSW Labor socialist nutter Meredith Burgmann - displayed the disgraceful intellectual fraudulence of many in the anti-war movement. She was asked over and over what should be done about Iraq if we choose not to go to war.
Not once did she even attempt to answer the question. Even Phillip Adams got tired of her avoidance. When asked the question, she would proceed with bizarre rants about Kyoto, Dubya's oil greed, the history of Saddam's rise to power, American imperialism, Vietnam, "why don't we invade Pakistan because of the abuse of women", USA's own nuclear weapons.....and on and on she bloody went....
Yet she could not answer the question: what are you going to do about Saddam if there is no war?
No answer was forthcoming,
just the patended evasions of the typical west-hating anti-war gasbag.
Better a million dead Iraqis by Saddam's hands than a thousand by Americans,
What is ambiguous about this movement is its timing. Twenty-three million Iraqis live under the jackboot of Saddam's vast apparatus of oppression (the remaining 1 million Iraqis are wearing the jackboots). Yet where were the mass street demonstrators when Saddam was gassing, murdering and displacing hundreds of thousands of Kurds? Or invading Iran? Or invading Kuwait? Or wiping out the Madan tribes?
Millions of people
have taken to the streets in outrage at the prospect of Iraqis being killed
by Americans, but the streets were empty as a million Iraqis were murdered,
gassed, tortured, raped, imprisoned, arrested or dispossessed under Saddam.
It's ongoing. Demonstrate against Saddam inside Iraq and you die.
Rania Kashi, 19, a first-year student at Cambridge University, sent the long e-mail to about 15 friends who were considering going on Saturday's protest march in London.
