Howling at the Moon


James Henson

I see the leading climate change scientist of our time James Henson wants to put all the major oil companies on trial for their deceptions and manipulations of climate change data resulting in high crimes and misdemeanours against humanity.It appears that we are beyond the tipping point.

Pope Benedict

In another surreal outburst the Pope has decreed that only the pure of heart can receive communion. If one is divorced, one is not pure of heart. If one is a former member of the Youth Nazis in Germany, one is pure of heart.


Celine Dion


More like a screech at the moon to my ears. (Sorry fans out there!) She has won an award for the worst cover of all time - for screaming AC/DC's You Shook Me All Night Long

George W. Bush

In a downhome and folksy move, The Occupant is considering opening a U.S. office in Iran, a sort of a reachout to the youth of the country endeavour. Iran "sticks out too much", he maintains, now that Iraq is all tidied up and cosy. But he wants it made clear, see, it's not a softening of policy. What a relief!

Mayan King Pakal

Researchers are now saying that the previously held belief of a sudden ending to the Mayan civilization is untrue. They believe that it was a series of disasters and catastrophes that ended the dynasty over a period of perhaps two hundred years. Much like what is happening today, I expect.

  1. All very interesting info, Wisewebwoman but especially liking your irony re the Pope and communion only to those who are "pure of heart". Such a subjective quality -- how to measure it?

  2. A cacophony of Moony howlings there, WWW !

    So....those who are divorced are not "pure of heart" ? What about the woman beaten and abused by her husband who eventually divorces him ?

    What idiocy, what hypocrisy!!
    Makes me want to howl myself!

    Only he and his red-caped underlings can measure the purity it of course! I wonder if priestly paedophiles have purity? H'mmmm.

    As I was told by my priest when my ex and I were in conflict years ago:
    "How can you be having trouble with such a good man?"
    I lacked purity obviously.
    It's an extraordinary word isn't it.
    I remember confessing my 'impure thoughts' when I was a teenager as the priest breathed heavily of whiskey fumes through the grill at me.
    Lordy. LOL

  5. Re the oil issue, two oil-industry experts have said in the London Independent that there's actually plenty of oil and there may even be plenty into the start of the next century. They reckon the level of oil reserves is seriously under-estimated. But the oil companies are happy with the shortage consensus as it keeps prices up. The high prices in any case are a result of financial speculation rather than supply and demand problems.

    No matter how much oil we do have (and that's so entire speculative with the cogs of the machinery run by crooks and liars)we are still up against the havoc created by emissions.

    On my cynical days, I'm inclined to believe the whole world turns on hypocrisy and falsehoods.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
