Final Furry Friday..... On Saturday

This is my final post in this blog.

It hasn't gone how I thought.  I think I am blogged out.

Enjoy.  There are some good posts here.  And don't forget that 2centsworthdownunder.blogspot.com is still there to have a walk through.

I may start a 3rd eventually.  But for now, life is too busy and I have no love for this one.

Thank you all for your patronage, I appreciate it always.

I start my new job as Executive Assistant to a Rabbi on monday.  Gonna be a dream.

Shalom and blessings of Hope, Health and Happiness to you all.

Symphonic Sunday - A Love Before Time

The entire soundtrack to Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon was just lush from start to finish.
I really enjoyed this too.  Never had heard Coco before.
The girl has pipes.

Have a good week all :)

It Is Monday Again Tomorrow

I had not worked for over a year until I got my job.  Gotta get my work stamina back.

I think I prefer being a housewife.

My bank doesn't agree with me though.

Blessings for the week ahead everyone :)

RIP Stephen Furst

I loved him as Vir Cotto on Babylon 5.



Turks Destroy ANZAC Monument

The Turkish government has defaced an Anzac monument at Gallipoli, possibly as part of an Islamist push.
The 1985 memorial used to bear the words attributed to the founder of modern Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, which welcomed the Anzac dead.
"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives... You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours," it read.
"You, the mothers who sent their sons from faraway countries, wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well."
Turkey says the words were removed as part of a "restoration" process on the Gallipoli peninsula.
But some historians believe the real reason is to minimise the secular nature of the monument, and emphasise the Islamic angle of the WW1 conflict, The Guardian reports.
They believe Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants to cast Gallipoli as a crusader invasion, resisted by jihadi defenders.
Mr Erdogan has already used the victory against the Anzac forces as propaganda for his own political purges.
"The crusades were not [finished] nine centuries ago in the past! Do not forget Gallipoli was a crusade," The Guardian quoted President Erdogan as having said.
"Because the Erdogan government is in power, Islamists are now in the ascendant - as the new Gaba Tepe interpretative centre [at Gallipoli] shows. It depicts Turkey's 86,000 Gallipoli dead as 'martyrs', dying in a fight against Christian invaders," University of New South Wales Canberra history professor Peter Stanley told the paper.
"Hitherto, Turkish memorials on Gallipoli have praised Mustapha Kemal Ataturk's leadership. Their destruction preparatory to 'renovation' [of the Anzac Cove Ataturk monument] signifies that the secularist adulation, formerly the orthodoxy, is being challenged and supplanted by a new, theocratic interpretation."



This is disgusting.  What was once a country of respect and diversity is now becoming as monolithic as its' neighbors.

She Works Hard For The Money

So.  I am now an employed citizen in the US of A.

I am the Office Assistant for an automotive repair company that specializes in hail damage.

It isn't what I wanted to be honest.  But - to be honest - it is a fine first job here.  Something for the resume.

So I am thankful.

Blessings for you all.

My home state of Queensland in Australia has formally apologised to those gay men who were arrested and/or persecuted in the many decades before decriminalisation of homosexuality in 1990.

The apology is below.

I love my homeland.

We Are So Goddamn Sensitive Mary!

Something I have noticed on social media - Twitter - particularly is how fucking sensitive we are.

When did become such pussies?

Now granted, I am socially awkward as all get out, but I'm not crying every 5 seconds like some people are on social media.  The thick skin seems to now be thin organza.  Jesus queens!

Why are we getting our undies in a twist so often over the smallest minutiae when there are serious issues with our nation devolving into a mass of White Supremacy and Intentional Ignorance - henceforth referred to as Whi-SII.

Since the 'Validater-In-Chief' ascended to the linoleum throne, Whi-SII has erupted in this country to levels that the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Centre has not seen since the 60's. Anti-Semitic attacks are up anywhere between 60-200% depending on who is reporting it.  Anti-Black attacks are skyrocketing beyond easy stat gathering.  And white supremacists send groups to OUR protests to enact anarchic behaviors - breaking windows, looting, violence - to paint the protests as criminal.

But sure, let's beat each other up on Twitter about gay-baiting on TV and in Film.

We have an entire political movement devoted to Alt-Facts aka Propaganda.  You know - what they used in the 1930's in Germany by that goosestepping group of white supremacists??  Yeah - white supremacists.  Like how it is happening NOW IN THE USA!  And now we see in Europe as well!

How does the validity of gay-baiting seem now?  It's a piss in a bucket compared to the above.

Here's the thing.  Nick Jonas and all of the similar singer/actors in their 20's with pumped pecs and bubble-butts can bait me into spending my money on them all they want.  At least with them I know what I am going to get.  It's an honest product.  They aren't lying to you.  And YOU know what's going on.

Whi-SII is taking over the nation one alt-fact at a time.  We are losing the hard fought freedoms one attempt at a time (PS Don't think for one second that dodging ONE BULLET means we are bullet proof).  Whi-SII hates people who do not think like them.  Or look like them.  Or vote like them.  If you think this is a movement of ideas only, you are sadly misinformed.

This is a movement of action.
This is a movement of violence.
This is a movement of legislative replacement.
This is a movement who wants cocksuckers dead.

Think about that for a moment will you?

Ok Nick, what am I buying off you today?
