Hoffa and the Kennedy’s.

I watched Danny Devito’s film Hoffa, again last night. After a brief spell as a Marxist, I’m always drawn to examples of people joining together against any oppressive force. There are several films about the US labour market joining together to fight the greedy bosses, Fist, with Stallone is... Sign in to see full entry.

The Giant Dome Over Huston.

The idea id being floated of a Giant dome to cover the City of Huston USA. At first the thought of Giant covering for anywhere fills people with dread. It might be like being trapped inside? We have a natural fear of being locked into large structure and will always long for the freedom of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Israel flying into Iran

Israel flying into Iran. It would not be the first time Israeli jet fighter have overflow a Middle Eastern country to attack a direct threat. They did it in the 80’s when Sadam was looking forward to his new Nuclear facility being built by the French. Back then it was not supposed to be used for... Sign in to see full entry.

Strike!

In the Uk we have gone back to the bad old days of strikes to solve all our problems. People are really suffering now that prices have gone through the roof. I once worked it out that we are paying 3 times more for a tank of fuel here than in the USA, and most of that goes in tax. What most people... Sign in to see full entry.

Big Brother is sniffing you!

Big Brother is sniffing you! After just listening to a radio report on the Police and the use of CTV cameras, you get the same old story. People say on the one hand, if you don’t have a guilty conscience what have you to worry about? Then there is the civil liberties issue? So why should we worry... Sign in to see full entry.

The Long Good Friday!

Last night I watched an old film from the early 80’s about London gangsters. Bob Hoskins at his best, along with a cast which actually included some real London villains of not notoriety. Still a good film but today I think it held some troubling lessons. The film was about being a big fish in a... Sign in to see full entry.

John Prescott !!!

John Prescott!!! What is this man playing at? I saw on the box last night that the girl in the story: Tracy Temple is to get over 100,000 from Max Clifford from The News of the World. At first I thought this was another decent into the pit, but when Max came on to put their side of the story I could... Sign in to see full entry.

China!

China! China looks like becoming the worlds super-power. One of the reasons I think we have little to fear from China, is due to its size. Sure there are a hell of a lot of them, but 90% of the population have never picked up a telephone. They have one of the largest populations on the Web, but I... Sign in to see full entry.

Iran and the Bomb!

Iran and the Bomb! The fact that the US will be turning to Iran as the next port of call for it’s war machine, cannot be in any doubt now. One thing the Arab world has got wrong, was the fact that they all thought the US would turn the other cheek after 9/11. The Arabs had been used to skirmishes... Sign in to see full entry.
