If I posted all the email that you guy's sent
me each week there would be no room left on the main page for anything
else. That being the case I've now started Overflow. This ingenious
mechanism will allow me to publish some of the more interesting
stuff you guy's had to say each week without cluttering the rest
of the site.
First up was a couple of replies to my blog last
Orsm, while I agree whole-heartedly about
being a hard bastard to take children captive, try seeing
fom the other side.Russia has occupied Chechnya since the
earky 90s. and a lot of their people have had family killed
by the Russians.One of the terrorists told a little boy(report
in the "West Australian') we will kill 20 of you if
you don't do as we say because that was the number of family
he'd had killed by Russian bombing & troops. It's not
a fair world by any stretch of the imagination,but I really
think one has to see both sides of the sad story.The Iraq
vs America war will go on as far as the foreseeable future
because of what America is doing to Iraq.Iraq's hatred of
Westerners is being fuelled by further bombing & killing,but
Joe Public only sees what the TV lets them see,therefore
he forms a one sided opinion. It's a bad situation and one
that's not gonna improve in a hurry.
Anyway, totally agree with you on
the bleak future of this sorry state of a world. If only decent
ordinary human beings with the basic good morals of mankind
were in power instead of these political and corporate megalomaniacs,
the world would be have so much more of a better future.
Here's something that
might be of some interest, but if not i apologize for talking
too much crap. I read an article on the consumer culture of
this world the other day n about the mindless consumption
of goods n resources by ordinary ppl encouraged by advertising,
and turns out that if this course and rate of production,
consumption and resource depletion continues, its estimated
that the earths resources will be all used up by around 2070.
scary thought ay.. bleak future indeed.
An educated reply from an old timer...

Unfortunately the system we have
is the system we have and no amount of name calling and profanities
will change it. As for John Howard being a liar, what politician
doesn't, Ive been about for a while and heard some porkies
that would make your hair stand on end so I dont really take
that into account when deciding who to vote for, what I do
is look at the way the country has been run for the last decade
and who is likely to run it for the next without causing too
much pain for the little man. As for voting Labour just to
get rid of someone you dont like thats like cutting off your
nose to spite your face and the waste of a vote. Emotions
shouldnt come into casting a vote but common sense should.
You have got 2 major players and a host of smaller ones that
could use a vote but think carefully before you put your tick
down because you will have to live with it for better or for
worse. Everybody is talking "Greens" but who are
they and are they really Green. They talk the talk but do
they walk the walk. For example, how many of the Green candidates
have Solar Power on their houses, how many have Solar Hot
Water, how many run their cars on LPG or bio diesel, how many
recycle their waste water and save rain water and how many
have power guzzling air conditioning in their homes or are
they there quite happy to have there policies as long as it
doesn't inpinge on their way of living. The Democrates, well
everybody knows that they are there until they get a better
offer from one of the major parties and then they swap sides
and ideoligies. Independants, okay as long as they arent too
far out and have a grasp of what the people really need, so
have a thought and dont waste your vote on stupid emotional
payback. Keep up the good work ORSM, from an oldie.
Some feedback from the
9/11 pics I posted and some general 9/11 related stuff...
Subject: 9/11 pics
Orsm, Yours is possibly the most kick ass
site on the net to date. The weekly updates are definitely
the way to go. I just wanted to say a great big thanks for
the 9/11 pics you posted this week. It just goes to show that
not everyone hates the good ol' US of A. I'll tell you one
thing, Osama bin PUSSY better not ever show his mangy face
again or I guarantee there will be more than one pissed off
American waiting to kick in his fucking face. JIHAD MY ASS,
MOTHERFUCKER! BRING THAT SHIT HERE AGAIN AND YOU CAN EXPECT
A FUCKING ICBM DOWN YOUR FUCKING THROAT. The same goes for
the dickweeds in Iraq bombing our soldiers and innocent civilians.
So let's recap:
1. Osama bin ASSLICKER= goat fucking pussy boy.
2. Saddam Husucksgoats= twink loving cum dumpster.
3. Afghani's= camel riding pole smokers.
4. Iraqi's= bung licking cock suckers.
Anyway, thanks again for the
pics, and thanks for caring , even though you are on the other
side of the planet. I don't know if, or in what way, you were
affected by the tragic events of September 11, 2001, but that
day will be forever remembered as the darkest day in American
history. Keep up the good work, and remember, you keep updating,
and we'll keep coming back for more.
Subject: How does Bush Raise Money?
Just take a minute to check this out,
it is believed that Bush had a hand in the 9/11 attack.
This site hosts many link to the conspiracy theory of who
to point the finger at...
The Greatest Hoax of All Time? I think that near election
time we may see "Bush finds Osama" what do you
think... Kind of an ace up his sleeve for an election in
a bag. Also on election day you may find that Florida will
be scared to go vote in lue of a posable terrorist threat.
Moore Vs The Casino issue is still being debated as well...

It seems that I have stirred the
pot and gotten some people thinking. The who did not want
to be identified. Why not, what are you afraid of?
As far as freedom of expression,
you provide a short list that includes Canada, South Korea
and Japan. Who got them that freedom? Does that fact that
Canada replies so much on the American economy and the Korean
War and WWII ring a bell? I can not speak to New Zealand and
Australia because I do not have enough knowledge of the culture
there. What about freedom of expression in Iran, Iraq (previously),
Laos, Cambodia, North Korea, Thailand, China and a host of
South African countries for a short list of where they do
not have that right? You chose to call it arrogance or lack
of knowledge. It is fortunate that you have more worldly knowledge
than I. I also don't recall that I called him un-American,
perhaps I did, it was late when I wrote as well, but I have
learned how to use the spell check option on my computer.
It sounds like your worldly
knowledge has missed what happened in the US during the Vietnam
Crisis. Do you have any idea what it was like for the soldiers
to come home un-welcomed, un-loved, being called baby killers,
not being able to get jobs because they fought for their country
and the rights of the South Vietnamese people?
Yes, we most likely went over
there for oil, so what? If that is all we cared about, why
are the soldiers still there rebuilding the country and giving
the entire Iraqi people better quality of life, just to get
more oil money? Maybe, but I think there is a lot more to
it than that, but you choose to ignore all of the positives
and focus on the negative aspect of oil and Saddam. This is
what I criticized Moore for, being negative and not offering
a positive constructive solution. There has not been very
much if any positive proof of WMD or ties with Al Quaeda.
But is not the improvement of the Iraqi way of life justification
enough to over throw Saddam? They now have hospitals, sanitary
drinking water, electrical and cable stations. Would you deprive
the Iraqi's of that? Sounds like you would.
I do not think you heard me
support Bush in any way shape or form, so your assumption
that I believe and support him brings true the first part
of assume (it makes and ASS out of U). America should take
care of the people at home before shelling out billions of
dollars in foreign aid, but are you one of the one's receiving
that foreign aid? Since you did not identify yourself, I can
The inheritance is theirs, why
do you want a piece of it? You did not pay in to it, but want
some of it? Sounds like you want something for nothing. I
guess you have not experienced how many people would rather
sit home and collect un-employment and welfare than earn an
honest day's pay for and honest day's work.
As far as money in my pocket,
Busch has put more in, how about yours? It seems to me that
every hard working American has more spending money today,
do you dis-agree, or did he cut your welfare or food stamps?
Which happens to come out of my paycheck.
Back to a reasonable response
from Ryan Rittenhouse.
Yes, after reading what you
said, I can see how my response could be interpreted that
way. It was not meant that way. I really liked your quotes
and do believe in them. I fear that the soldiers in Iraq are
going to come home like the Vietnam veterans. That scares
me tremendously. They are the one's "Defending to the
Death" his right to say it.
As far as that hat, East Lansing,
home of MSU, is probably the largest gay population in Michigan.
And no, I am not a homophobe. I would like to know how many
plants that GM has overseas? I worked for a tier one "Supplier
of the year" to GM and we are in the US and do not ship
anything over seas at the moment. Why are the International
Car companies building plant in the US if it so bad? Roger
Smith did not create the problems in Flint, the UAW did. I
was just stating for the record the demographics of the area,
which do not seem disputed.
FYI G. Richard "Rick"
Wagoner was named CEO June 1, 2000 and they have acquired
numerous over seas companies.

are well worth the read...

A 44-year-old woman was brought to hospital
by police. Over a period of years she had isolated herself
and her daughter from society, arousing the concern of neighbours.
A scant history of “schizophrenia”, personality
disorder and intellectual disability was obtained from distant
relatives. Examination revealed classic clinical features
of profound hypothyroidism. In addition, a lump was found

Subject: World Record For Drunk Driving: A true story from
There is little doubt that an Australian,
if not world, record has been set in Kununurra for drink/driving
offences in the same vehicle. Between 9.20pm on Monday July
5 2004 and 12.40am on Thursday July 8 2004 a silver Mitsubishi
Magna station wagon was stopped 12 times and on each occasion
the driver was found to be drunk and then charged. Not one
driver - 10 different drivers, two of whom were caught twice.
The 51-hour saga began on July
5 in Erythrina Street when a 36-year-old woman was pulled
over at 9.20pm and produced a blood alcohol reading of 0.151.
At 10.55pm a 23-year-old man
was pulled over in Speargrass Road and blew 0.205 - he also
had no licence.
An hour and 55 minutes later
the car was stopped again and an unlicensed 22-year-old woman
blew 0.120. Police took the car back to its registered address.
Only minutes later police spotted
the vehicle on Weaber Plain Road. It turned into a house in
Barringtonia Street and a woman jumped out and ran. Police
caught her and she then refused a breath test, before running
off again. During the struggle to arrest her she bit a police
officer on the thumb and was eventually subdued with the use
of pepper spray. A 26-year-old woman was charged with refusing
an alcohol test, driving without a licence, resisting arrest
and assaulting a public officer. She eventually blew 0.150.
After that, the car had a fairly
quiet day until 8.30 that night when it was pulled over and
the 23-year-old unlicensed driver from the night before blew
Police had only just dropped
the man off at the police station when they spotted the vehicle
again, this time on Messmate Way with an unlicensed 25-year-old
man at the wheel. He blew 0.161. Again the car was returned
to the registered address and the people there told not to
By 10.30pm it was back in Messmate
Way with an unlicensed 36-year-old woman driving. She gave
police a wrong name and blew 0.186.
By 12.50am it was back being
pulled over in Barringtonia Street with an unlicensed 28-year-old
man at the wheel. He had only been released on parole from
Broome Prison 17 hours earlier (1000+ km, 600+ miles away),
but still managed to blow 0.180. Police put him in the back
of the 'paddy wagon' and headed to a disturbance.
They settled that down, but
before they could return to the station they had spotted the
now familiar Magna in Konkerberry Drive. They pulled it over
in Ironwood Drive only to find the same unlicensed man driving,
who had been caught earlier in the evening. He blew 0.189.
By 6.30pm the Magna was back
in action on Casuarina Drive with a 34-year-old unlicensed
woman at the wheel, getting ready to blow 0.173.
The car was 'taken home' again,
but by 7.15pm it was back on the Victoria Highway with an
unlicensed 24-year-old only just in control with a blood alcohol
At 12.40am on Thursday 8th July
2004 a 29-year-old man became the last driver in the saga
by blowing 0.110 when pulled over on Speargrass Road at the
entrance to the Ranch Reserve.
Snr Const. Dean Snashall said
the car was then seized and kept until a sober and responsible
person collected it. He said that in future any vehicle in
which more than one offence had taken place would be seized
and kept at the police station. He said that on many of the
occasions when the car was pulled over there were children
without seatbelts inside, not to mention the dangers to other
passengers and other motorists and pedestrians. Registered
owners have to be responsible for their vehicles or they will
lose them," he said.
Out of 16 drink driving
offences in Kununurra last week, the Magna's drivers accounted
