Hello all,

I'm an Australian musical composer and documentary film maker fighting global media propaganda (sorry about Murdock) as many of you are. I live a stone's throw from the beach and I'm about as far from Western society as I can get without actually leaving it.

After listening to Donald Trump and others concerned that 'the world' now hates America I have to say that this just isn't true and i hope to add a global perspective to this debate. And, while I'm no fan of GW - who, with the ability to string together a coherent sentence could be - I am concerned that this puppet president will be demonised to the point where we will miss the fact that every government on the planet is being forced to play ball with a multi-national media conglomerate that is subverting the very idea of governance by the people and for the people.

The corporation loves fascism. In any case, thankyou for allowing me this opportunity to speak to other activists from across the globe.

Through the 'TVNewsLIES' Web site, lefty. For a long time I was 'anti-globalisation' and was quite happy under the Southern Cross but I'm afraid we've missed the boat on that one.

Welcome, DJ! [smilie=hi ya!.gif]

It's wonderful to have a new member who is from DOWN UNDER! Should we all say "G'DAY...or how ever you say it...you'll have to teach us. :wink:

I went to your website and was very impressed! You certainly know your music.

Jump into any of the discussions in the forums or start one of your own. I think you'll like the people you will find at our little board. No need to apologize for Murdock. After all, we've been governed by a chimp for far too many years. :lol:

Again, welcome and thanks for registering.

Cat

Welcome DJWolf. I thought you might be interested in this:

K-Lo: Former Australian PM John Howard for president.»

In an article for National Review Online today, Kathryn Jean Lopez writes yet another hagiographic ode to a conservative figure whom she would like to see run for office, this time suggesting that former Australian Prime Minister John Howard would be an ideal American president. “He’s a leader. He’s honest. And he’s available,” writes K-Lo. She has previously written similar pieces suggesting Bill Bennett for vice president, Lynne Cheney for the Senate, and President Bush for Secretary General of the UN.

Here's the horrible part.

We voted the Basket out! We thought we'd solved the problem by voting in Rudd... Much as you wish to do with Bush... Anyone else has to be better right? What was the first thing Rudd tried to do? Piggy back increased wiretapping powers legislation for the AFP (Like FBI) and ASIO (like CIA) through parliament.

So, it's not the politicians that have the power. They are merely the mouthpieces.

Is this any more absurd than Tony Blair as "Special Peace Envoy" for the Middle East. Tony's basic geography probably goes beyond the War Chimp's Africa is a country concept though.

Welcome DJ
