And they just can't help themselves from taking and using future generations wealth to pay for present situations which are predicated upon past gross practices.

Amen to that AMFM, in addition they certainly cant help foray into veritable Vatican exploits of exponential learnings lurking in live operational virtual environments, invoking torture and torment and taking innocent individuals on battalion spread betting human fox hunts for estranged entertainment.

Re: Plonkers R Us ...... Bleat and Bleed Out Putrid Bile Everywhere

I have to say amFM, that after a decade of psychological torture and abuse, that now channels into a daily stalkfest delivered through Live Operational Virtual Environments that they had many opportunities to just let sleeping dogs lie, and resolve things amicably.

The problem seemingly is, and always has been that they want their dancing bear, cake, and wanting to eat it too, unfortunately the bear has through too much tome on the hotplate become little more weary of prancing on the same torturous path.

As for the ‘game’ thats become little more than changing the rules to suit those operating, the validity was lost long ago, a bit like playing monopoly with a cheating relative.

Then they wonder how we got this far ... or was it not the case that no one ever made it this far?, i’m pretty sure those hallowed words were said.

As for death threats delivered in a deliberate and daily downstream, ce sera sera, event+reaction=outcome, they never want to accept the truth that the responsibility lies firmly with themselves.

A bit like expecting a laboratory beagle to cough up for the cigarettes it was forced to smoke.

Re: Intelligence

Thats one question I have the privilege of knowing the answer to, as well as many of the worlds other perplexing mysteries.

Cliff Thorburn


You only have to understand intelligence, and that is the primary denominator what seperates not only humans from one another, but also every other creature.

The disparity between humans and every other lifeforms on earth, including the Elite from the masses is the ascension of the ladder, the end point being true enlightenment.

Ask yourself, was that intelligence created on earth, or seeded from elsewhere through genetic modification.

We are to such like bacteria in a petri dish to humans conducting similar experimentation, freedom is the true meaning of life, it is what guides us in the quest for knowledge for advancement, whether rich or poor it is the ultimate expression of behaviour for every animal, and the constant battle to suppress such behaviour to maintain the control, be that through mass media, or whatever method.

The true question is every civilisation reaches a point where it can go no further, I consider every day whether we are at that point....

A world in which nations recognize the shared responsibility for freedom and justice. A world where the strong respect the rights of the weak”
