Read a bigot's essay

The author is an educated fool. If he doesn't like the fact that so many doctors are helping the sick in Africa I suggest he spend 10+ years learning a medical degree and go and work in Africa a place of rampant corruption, brutality, disease, no running water, epidemics for fuck all pay. 

Chinese girl gets raped and murdered in the most livable city in the world - Melbourne

Its sometimes unsettling to read the news and come across frightful stories like this - a young female pastry chef walking to work was attacked and raped and brutally murdered by a drunk.

The previous day he had been harassing women. He wasn't arrested. He got thrown out of a bar. No one seemed to call the police.

I'm not sure what the police were doing. Probably spending too much time doing revenue raising bullshit like chasing after motorists doing 2km over the speed limit downhill. And its much easier to fine a pensioner doing 62 in a 60km zone than trying to manhandle a drunk into the detention centre. Thanks to the former police commissioner - she was obese btw - physical tests were lowered for police.

Why is the State even bothering to put him in jail. He should have been shot on the spot.

Instead the State is going to now spend $100k annually keeping him in jail - maybe trying to rehab him and he'll end up reoffending again quite likely once he gets out. What you want to see him rape a 6 year old girl before you throw the book at him? Fuck that - he already blew his chances when he raped and murdered a fellow totally innocent human being. Hang the fucker already or put him in the sea at low tide and let nature take its course.

The other thing that makes me wonder is why the media isn't making a big deal out of this. If it had been a Muslim man raping a white girl or an ABC journalist like Jill Meagher - the Aussie Press would be covering their rags all over the shit. But no, its an Asian girl with a weird name. And just like Dr Cao (Victoria University lecturer) bashed to death for fun by street thugs who got less than a few months in jail or 8 year old Sofia Rodriguez-Urrutia-Shu raped to death in a shopping mall - there will be no memorial, no garland of wreaths, no big deal in Australia.

Update: Meanwhile the Prime Minister of Australia is intervening for the lives of two convicted drug lords. You can expect the QC lawyers, judges politicians to have a minute of silence for them if they die - or hold a protest.... WTF???? You think any of those people raped, killed, bashed to death on the streets of australia are going to get one fucking sorry tear from any of those leaders?

Charlie Hebdo: The Muslim terrorist attack in Paris

"We are scared"  - that's the biggest unspoken thing in the room at the moment. And the lack of admission of this truth is infuriating and speaks of dishonesty.

The truth is  - they are fearful - not of Presbyterian coffee makers, Catholic soup kitchen helpers, Buddhist chanters, Jewish bankers, Jesus Freak hippies - they are fearful of the reaction of Middle Eastern Muslims. From the assassin who murdered the Japanese translator of Salman Rushid's work to the 911 hijackers - to the thugs who beat up Australian lifeguards at Cronella - they all share the same culture and belief system.

For all the bluster that the media establishment make - from the NY Times to Melbourne's Age Newspaper - "We are Charlie Hebdo" signs lack authenticity without the actual incriminating cartoons that got the staff all killed by Muslim religious extremists.

Say it - "I'm scared of them". Its good to be honest. But you don't want to  because it reveals that you are weak, vulnerable and open to accusations that you are a coward or a hypocrite.

Let's face it - for all the Christian or Buddhist cartoons the magazine put up - no one was terribly worried about what the multi-billion dollar Vatican church or the Buddhist associations would do to them.

Here in Melbourne - there was an art exhibit where the artist had "Piss Christ"- which had a Christian symbol in the artist's urine. Its puerile. But hey I won't go to the artist's exhibit; I'm  not going to hunt him down and toilet-paper roll his home.

The Melbourne Age newspaper was stupid enough to call it a courageous or brave exhibit. Fuck off. He did it for the sensational power of doing it. Dare he do it with a Muslim religious artifact? I doubt it.

All around the world - everyone is concerned about what will happen to them if they dare offend the people of the Muslim faith.

Why? Because they have plenty of believers who defend their faith with violence.

Say it. Admit you are scared to the risks these people will pose to yourself, to your family, your children, your wives, your girlfriends, your home. No one in their right mind wants to risk their home being firebombed at night or that your wife will be raped by a gang of thugs because their iman told them she deserved it for wearing "provocative clothing".

There is a threat. Admit it. Say it. There is a tiger in the room. What are you going to do to address it?

Don't let all that Political-correctness etiquette preclude you from saying the obvious.

Before you can find a solution for a problem you have to know what the problem is and admit it.

When Prayer Really Worked

Genesis 25
1Abraham had taken another wife, whose name was Keturah. 2She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shuah. 3Jokshan was the father of Sheba and Dedan; the descendants of Dedan were the Ashurites, the Letushites and the Leummites. 4The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanok, Abida and Eldaah. All these were descendants of Keturah.

5Abraham left everything he owned to Isaac. 6But while he was still living, he gave gifts to the sons of his concubines and sent them away from his son Isaac to the land of the east.

7Abraham lived a hundred and seventy-five years. 8Then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age, an old man and full of years; and he was gathered to his people. 9His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah near Mamre, in the field of Ephron son of Zohar the Hittite, 10the field Abraham had bought from the Hittites.a There Abraham was buried with his wife Sarah. 11After Abraham’s death, God blessed his son Isaac, who then lived near Beer Lahai Roi.

Issac was whose miracle?

French satire magazine attacked

These people are really brave. They are standing up to the terrorists and they have paid the price.

These writers have my respect.

But journalists and writers from the Fairfax Press who tip top around the terrorist and religious issues while pointing fingers at the US and Israel ??

Fairfax lost my support when they used an offensive cartoon on 9/11. Best thing to do is to not buy their rag.

How to lose weight easily without going to the gym

There is a lot of advisory plans about dieting, losing weight and getting slim to get that "perfect body".

A lot of the information is not practical - long term. First off - the main aim is to be healthy - losing weight and getting slim should be a by-product of a healthy lifestyle. Going on unrealistic diet plans that you can't sustain long term is pointless. Its a bit like going to the gym for one day - working yourself out to death - and not returning again - and expecting you're gonna look super hot for next Christmas.

How are you going to be healthy? Simple - adopt a healthy lifestyle. No, you don't have to turn into a vegan overnight. But there are simple steps towards this. Remember what food is. Food is stuff you eat that WILL make you healthy. Fresh Vegetables, fresh fruit, lean meat (personally I think a little bit of fat is OK), etc..

1. Drink 2 litres of water a day. Not in one gulp - drinking too much water at once can actually injure your brain. Drink it throughout the day. I keep a small waterbottle handy in the car or a  cup on my desk. One thing I find that helps me is to drink a warm glass of water mixed with a freshly squeezed lemon in the morning. The fresh lemon juice seems to help me curb my cravings for sweet things.

2. Avoid sugar. Avoid Sugar. Avoid Sugar!!!! The sugar you eat is essentially tons and tons of sugarcane grounded down into sugar - with all the fibre and nutrients taken out. That handful of sugar you take would have taken kilograms of sugarcane to make. In reality you would never be able to consume 1kg of sugar cane in a meal - think about that for awhile. Sugar unfortunately is used everywhere. From soft drinks to that delicious Chinese steam fish. But at the very least you can avoid taking it directly.

The bad rap also extends by the same principle to fruit drinks - which is essentially the same principle as producing sugar from sugar cane- you remove the pulp and consume the sugar.

Of course you can't totally avoid it - but you can and should avoid all soft drinks. Probably the worst thing you can do for your health and waistline is to drink softdrinks - Coke, Fanta, Pepsi, lemonade etc.. If you can drink just water instead of soft drinks - the battle is half won already.

The other bad habit is eating the utter rubbish Breakfast companies make for breakfast cereal - its confectionery - its junk food. Try and eat rolled oats for breakfast. It takes a bit of effort - but it will lower your cholesterol and make you healthy.

Do all you can to stay clear away from sugar - reduce or stop the amount you put into your coffee or tea etc.. A journey of a thousand steps starts with one step. Start now.

3. Eat plenty of fresh vegetables and fresh fruit. Think of your body as a sponge. Soak that sponge in shit and junk food - don't expect it to smell likes roses. The maxim you are what you eat is correct. Eat shit - look like shit - smell like shit. Try and think about your food choices - what are you eating? Are you sure its good for you? Whatever enters into you becomes a part of you. Drink contaminated water/food - and you suffer. Eat processed food - cooked in some factory with god knows what kind of ingredients and crap and you still wonder why so many people get cancer?

4. Avoid binge or mindless eating. A lot of the fat we store in our bodies comes from stupid eating habits - ie. "I'm bored I'm going to eat a packet of chips, suck on a lollipop, eat confectionery for no other reason other than I'm bored". Fat by Default. I'm not one for "NO!" diets - but people need to exercise great care and mindfulness in what they put in their mouths.

Most of this binge eating stems from bad parenting.

1. The kids is crying - make him stop by giving him sweets/chips/fast food.
2. You want to entertain or reward the kid? Give him sweets/chips.
3. The kid is bored? Give him sweets/chips/fast food

So from an early age we are conditioned to eat junk food as a form of reward or as a way to calm us down or make us happy.

OK. But now that we are adults with hopefully rational thinking minds - we can take a step back and say no.

And find some other way to make ourselves happy - like running, watching movies, walking, swimming or sex. :)

I want you to STOP and THINK. Most of the problems in this world are caused by people who don't think it through. On the plus side - thinking is also a form of exercise and you do burn calories doing that. :)

5. Avoid Fast Food joints - McDonalds, KFC, etc.. the food they serve is saturated with fat. If you think its too revolutionary try cutting back a bit. I actually love McDonalds. I love their Quarter Pounder, their special burgers like the New Yorker burger. So whenever I go there - I do not purchase the combo (burger+chips+soft drink). I buy the burger and a cup of black coffee. If I want the chips - I buy the chips but do not buy the burger or soft drink. And I make sure I chew and savor every horrible drop of their delicious fatty rubbish. Mmmmmm.... Make every fat count!!!

6. Avoid Processed food. They contain a lot of preservatives and goodness knows what else to keep them "fresh". This includes fruit juices sold in bottles. Its hard but be aware, be conscious, don't sleep walk into diabetes and obesity.

Remember you are what you eat. Eat shit rubbish food and you even smell like it.

I drink Early Grey Tea every morning infused with lavender flowers from my garden. You want to know what happens when I start drinking a lot of it? My farts smell like lavender flowers. :D

7. Push on. Its not easy trying to have a healthy lifestyle. But its like a journey  - you have rainy days, bad days, sick days, your car breaks down, but still - push on. Keep at it. Reflect on what you've eaten. Make changes if you can. Don't let yourself be discouraged.

8. Be positive minded. All that negative thoughts are just going to lower your metabolism and screw with your system. The mind is a very powerful thing - You can worry yourself sick. You can build space ships. You can run complex machinery. You can change your body by just thinking well about it. If you don't love yourself - or have some appreciation for yourself - you're going to be forever prone to depression.

9.Don't sit down too long. Be active. Don't sit down all day.

10. Sleep. 8 hours a day. Maybe a catnap for 30 mins midday is beneficial too.

Sydney Terrorist Incident: Violent offender out on bail.

Hard to believe that the terrorist, a violent offender and nutcase, was out on bail. 

But Labor has been very soft towards criminals and crazy people - the Australian Prime Minister Keating apparently intervened to prevent a Muslim Leader Sheik Hilali from being deported despite him preaching violence, hatred and for  welfare system abuses. In Singapore he would have been ISDed ages ago.
