Read or Condemn Yourself to Death by Ignorance

For those courageous souls brave enough to look and see what is,

who are unwilling to blindly accept

the lies and rules of tyrannical authority.

I hope you get something from it!


Tanker attack was imaginary, but US says Iran did it

These network stories are examples of fake news at its most dangerous, when it plays into the dishonest manipulations of an administration beating the drums for a war against Iran that has no reasonable basis. Not only do the networks and mainstream media generally fail to question the administration’s rush to war, they also fail to do basic journalism by independently confirming whether a particular story is true or not.

Look harder!

Most people grossly overestimate what they can get in a day and grossly underestimate what they can get done in 10 years.

Help Preserve Our Wildlife!

Hi Tom

Every three years, the NSW Environment Protection Authority releases a report card on the health of our wildlife, forests, rivers, ocean, air and climate. Late yesterday, it released the latest State of the Environment Report, and the results are damning.

In just three years, the number of critically endangered species has jumped 30%, approved land clearing has skyrocketed 244%, and 1025 native species are now threatened with extinction.

We know what the NSW Government needs to do to turn things around - it must end deforestation, protect koala habitat, return water to our rivers and tackle climate change - but they won’t act if we don’t push them.

As I write this email, MPs are setting priorities for this term, so it is the perfect time to tell them to take urgent action to save koalas, forests and our climate.

Please email your state MP and ask them to commit to protect our koalas, forests, rivers and climate this term of government.

With a new parliament and a new team of MPs sitting on the benches, we have a fresh chance to push our leaders to act before it’s too late.

Alarm bells have been ringing loud and clear this week, here and around the world. A few days before the EPA released its report, United Nations scientists warned one million species would become extinct if we keep trashing the planet the way we have been, with catastrophic consequences for people everywhere.

Thanks to these two reports and recent opinion polling in the run up to the state and federal elections, MPs know the environment is a top priority for the community.

On Tuesday, when Matt Kean was asked his first question in parliament as our new Environment Minister, he said the UN report was an “important wake up call for all of us“. Importantly, he said it was not too late to make a difference and “that’s exactly what I intend to do“.

Please take a moment to email your local MP now to ask them to commit to protecting our koalas, forests, rivers and climate.

People power is already helping turn the tide. Australia’s nature laws have been letting us down, allowing habitat destruction and mining interests to trump community interests and our unique wildlife. But thanks to people like you speaking up, the federal Labor Party has promised to overhaul Australia’s nature laws if elected on May 18. This is a step in the right direction and could provide significantly more protection for our wildlife and wild places.

Let’s show our MPs that the people expect urgent action to save our wildlife and natural places. Email your MP today.

Thank you for being a voice for nature,

Kate CEO Nature Conservation Council of NSW

We Are All In This Together
We Are All In This Together

Kahlil Gibran, The Garden of The Prophet

Pity the nation that is full of beliefs and empty of religion.
Pity the nation that wears a cloth it does not weave
and eats a bread it does not harvest.

Pity the nation that acclaims the bully as hero,
and that deems the glittering conqueror bountiful.

Pity a nation that despises a passion in its dream,
yet submits in its awakening.

Pity the nation that raises not its voice
save when it walks in a funeral,
boasts not except among its ruins,
and will rebel not save when its neck is laid
between the sword and the block.

Pity the nation whose statesman is a fox,
whose philosopher is a juggler,
and whose art is the art of patching and mimicking

Pity the nation that welcomes its new ruler with trumpeting,
and farewells him with hooting,
only to welcome another with trumpeting again.

Pity the nation whose sages are dumb with years
and whose strongmen are yet in the cradle.

Pity the nation divided into fragments,
each fragment deeming itself a nation.

ALIVE From New York: The Day Abortion Died

Grab your tissues, this is sure to wet your eyes!

On May 4th 2019, a near perfect 70 degree afternoon, in the middle of Times Square, in New York City, from three sound stages blasting thousands of decibels into the surrounding neighborhoods, the final speaker of the day said that, “Soon... ...Abortion will become... ...unthinkable!”

The statement came after a 90 minute program that had been slated as a “public celebration of life.”

Not content to believe the organizers, protestors attempted to disrupt the proceedings. But those protests, which began with profane chants, obscene signs, and thundering drums, ended with nary a whimper, and dispersed far more mysteriously than they had appeared.


Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!
