A Load of Bladder

'So, you had a book published then did ye?' he says, tipping the brim of his hat back from his eyes. They were slightly bloodshot, with a hint of mischief about them.
'Well, sort of,' I said, in between gasps of air, 'I didn't write all of it. Only bits'
'But you were published?'
'Well, yes. I was, I suppose'
'And now you can't breathe because you're too pisht, too high and too excited?'
'I think so. I mean, I don't know'.
'Well' he says flicking through the pages with this thumb, a sardonic smile tugging at the corners of his mouth, 'I wouldn't get too carried away with yourself just yet. It's a load of shite, if you ask me'
'You reckon?'
'Yep' he says, 'but then again that's what the fuckers told me for ten years'.

Hitler was a Jew (apparently)


jude.jpgOh those wacky Iranians. Not content with holding an international conference which had the sole purpose of presenting evidence that the Holocaust was the world's largest mass-hallunication - that's right kids, your grandparents were all suffering from the effects of a planet-wide hysterical episode - now, it seems that a spokesman for the Iranian government is stating that Adolf Hitler was actually a Jew. Oh yes. A Jew. reports:

'a top advisor to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claimed in an interview with Iranian website Baztab that Nazi leader Adolf Hitler's parents were both Jewish and that Hitler himself was one of the founders of the State of Israel.

In the interview, translated by MEMRI, Mohammad-Ali Ramin, a chief aide to Ahmadinejad, told Baztab that Hitler's paternal grandmother was a Jewish prostitute and his father even kept his Jewish name until finally changing it to Hitler when he was 40.'

So, there you have it folks: that whole 'Final Solution' thing was all just an elaborate gag to create Israel.

The cleansing of YouTube


youtube.jpgSo, it's finally started: the great cleansing of YouTube. It was only a matter of time really. I had often wondered when the lawyers would get busy and start clamping down on shared video content. 'This week' it seems, is the answer.


Two news stories have heralded what I am sure is the beginning of the end for the joyous wonder that was YouTube. Says the BBC Tech section:

'An independent website has been told to stop putting footage of FA Premiership goals on the video website YouTube. NetResult - a firm monitoring the internet on behalf of the Premier League - emailed a warning to the website, It told the website it was "infringing" Premier League copyright. Links from 101greatgoals to YouTube were thought to have been disabled by YouTube itself but other links to Premiership goals stayed in place.'

Intelligent Design: Idiotic Government

I was actually wondering how long it would take Richard Dawkins to respond to President Bush's absurd assertion that Intelligent Design should be taught alongside Evolution in American schools. About two weeks is the answer, but at last we have it. Dawkins and Jerry Coyne have authored a piece in today's Guardian Newspaper which, unfortunately, has gotten bumped to third place on the front page. maccers

The Katrina and Baghdad stampede stories naturally take centre stage. Which is a shame - because the debate concerning America's shocking slide to the right and wilful return to medieval ignorance should be one of the most important debates of the next decade.

When the democratically elected President of the world's richest and most heavily armed nation is actively campaigning to have ignorance, superstition and implicitly racist bilge placed on the school curriculum, it's time to sit up and take notice.

"Intelligent design is not an argument of the same character as these controversies. It is not a scientific argument at all, but a religious one. It might be worth discussing in a class on the history of ideas, in a philosophy class on popular logical fallacies, or in a comparative religion class on origin myths from around the world. But it no more belongs in a biology class than alchemy belongs in a chemistry class, phlogiston in a physics class or the stork theory in a sex education class". - Dawkins and Coyne

Dawkins and Gould

The arguments are complex. On one side we have the Darwinists. On the other, Creationists. They prefer the term 'Intelligent design' these days, but I find myself wanting to puke every time that I hear it. It stinks of marketing and re-branding. And bullshit.

A couple of years ago, the late, great Stephen Jay Gould (the fellow Darwinist that Dawkins spent so much time butting heads with) made the extraordinarily simple observation that to compare Creationism and Evolution was to entirely miss the point: they are 'studies' (and I'm being generous in asigning that term to Creationism) of entirely diffferent things.

"'Creation science' has not entered the curriculum for a reason so simple and so basic that we often forget to mention it: because it is false, and because good teachers understand exactly why it is false. What could be more destructive of that most fragile yet most precious commodity in our entire intellectualy heritage -- good teaching -- than a bill forcing honorable teachers to sully their sacred trust by granting equal treatment to a doctrine not only known to be false, but calculated to undermine any general understanding of science as an enterprise?" - Stephen Jay Gould

Creationism is a method to explain the origins of life. Evolution is the study of the process of life. If ignorant, redneck, banjo-plucking mongs want to pick a fight with somebody then they should do so with those propogating theories concerning the formation of the universe, big-bang theorists and quantum physicists.

What are you really scared of?

This leads us to make a simple, but often overlooked observation: the objection which white America has to evolution is really nothing to do with the removal of God from the playing field.

The objection stems from the creationists' horror at what evolution really tells them: that they and the people that look like them, are not the master race. Black, white, yellow or brown, evolution cares not. It is concerned with the tree of life and rejects the progressive ladder concept with which rich, white men have comforted themselves for centuries. Evolution threatens their world view and must be attacked with all force.

Yowch! This is nasty. Mewonders how long before this is shut down?

"The Gardai ambush of a gang of "two bit hoodlums" in Lusk county Dublin in May 2005,and the consequent shooting dead of one of the robbers is a nice (and badly needed) public image coup for our boys in blue. Even Bertie got in on it, effusively praising the successful garda operation, etc.

A little reality check here is perhaps useful.

This "information received" capture of some small time villians-who are to numerous to mention in the grand scheme of things was no doubt inspired by some equally small time informant and hardly merits the machinery of Fianna Fail,s propaganda machine rolling into full gear to assure us that we are all safe in our beds tonight,and forever more,given the scale and extent of recent criminal successes,countrywide."

Well, this didn't take long. All of about five days in fact.

Earlier this week the body politic got the hairs on it's collective neck doing a spastic right-angled dance when it was announced that the Centre for Public Inquiry (a non-profit body funded by the group known as Atlantic Philanthropies) was being established in order to fund investigative journalists who wanted to probe some of the more nebulous activities of our politicians.bartlett?

So, was the government going to stand for this? Was it fuck. The Sunday Independent (that ever-faithful mouthpiece of FF spin) ran a front-page headline screaming that the journalist leading the group, one Frank Connolly was the brother of Sinn Fein member Niall Connolly (he of the Colombia 3) and that Frank was being investigated by the Gardai over allegations that he visited Colombia with a senior IRA man a couple of years back. The article also prominently displayed the word 'McCarthyism'. Fascinating that this should find it's way on to the front page of the broadsheets the same week, eh?

Well, smack my ass and call me Mick McCarthy.

I'll give the Government this: their spin-scum are efficient little rottweilers. They managed to get the magic words 'Sinn Fein' 'IRA' and 'watchdog' all into the same article in a matter of days. We can only conclude that Centre for Public Inquiry, which if we understand this properly, are an organisation dedicated to uncovering bribery, corruption and the general scumbaggery that infests Irish politics, must be the most terrifying vista on the political horizon since Sin Fein itself started to garner FF votes. The Government must be really desperate if they are trying to discredit the organisation before it's even started work.

Sounds of gagging

When you bear in mind that Dr. Pat Wallace, the Director of the National Museum, has been gagged from testifying before the Dail over the proposed destruction of Tara to accomadate the construction of another road, because he would have a 'vested interest', you really have to ask yourself who is running the witchhunts in this country.

Oh and in case anyone forgets, that's Ray Burke on the right.

The Bush war record....

A lot of stuff is coming back to haunt the American President this week. Greg Palast has a piece on the young George's war record including revelations by former Lt. Governor Ben Barnes of Texas who says that "I got a young man named George W. Bush into the Texas Air Guard - and I'm ashamed." Furthermore, it would seem this was a deliberate move to keep the young George from having to go off to Nam...

And from the Guardian:

Lt Col Jerry Killian, who died in 1984, ordered Mr Bush to be suspended from flight status for those infractions. The memo goes on to note that Mr Bush was trying to transfer to non-flying status with a unit in Alabama, and recommends that the Texas unit fill his flying slot "with a more seasoned pilot from the list of qualified Vietnam pilots that have rotated".

President Bush's administration has been accused of suppressing and distorting scientific findings that run counter to its own political beliefs.

The charge comes from an American body, the Union of Concerned Scientists, in a statement with more than 60 supporters.

Said Dr. Kurt Gottfried: "Across a broad range of issues, the administration has undermined the quality of the scientific advisory system and the morale of the government's outstanding scientific personnel. Whether the issue is lead paint, clean air or climate change, this behaviour has serious consequences for all Americans."

In light of yesterdays report from the CIA (reported by the Observer) which say that global warming could destroy most of Europe within about, oh, thirty years, I'd say that it was pretty f**king important to be listening to scientists right now...

Oi. Harney. No.


Mary Harney. Yesterday...Mary Harney says that we (that's you and me - the consumer) are to blame for high prices. OK. Now I'm angry...

So according to a piece in today's Irish Indo, Mary Harney has said that the high prices that we face in the post Celtic Bog-Cat Oireland are the result of a failing of us, the consumer. Apparently, we did not shop around enough.
