Every dog has their day and there is no lower, greedier dog than Ivan Glasenberg. Things look set to get messy for him as his evil company, Glencore, swan dives into oblivion (fingers crossed).

A part from the fact he has:
* Raped and pillaged the ordinary people of developing nations by paying off corrupt governments.
* Allowed child labour to be used in his mines.
* Has poisoned precious water ways from bad mining practices.
* Tried getting the monopoly on food staples by bullying/paying off governments of some countries so he could raise the cost of food in developing nations forcing poor people to spend all their money on food or starve.
* Rorted Zambia out of millions in tax.
* Bribed EU officials in Belgium.
* Paid off an aluminium company in Bahrain to make bribery claims go away.
* Sacked the entire workforce of Collinsville, QLD mine etc. etc. etc.

Basically if Satan and Gordon Gekko had a baby it would be Ivan Glasenberg. I hope he gets his arse handed to him and Mick Davis buys everything back. Ivan Glasenberg is lower than shark shit.

Ok, I have held my tongue long enough. I know I am going to alienate and possibly anger a lot of people but I do not care, I cannot hold this in any longer. I FUCKING HATE POPE FRANCIS!!! There I said it! I am so sick of the bullshit, first-world media over the last week putting this hypocritical arsehole on a pedestal and acting like he is the second coming of Christ (not that I believe in the second coming of Christ, mind you, since I am an Atheist). It is a classic case of the Emperor’s New Clothes. I am over him being called ‘refreshing’, ‘progressive’, ‘a good person’ etc. etc. bullshit etc.

So here it is, in no particular order (because every point angers me just as much as the others), every reason and sentiment why I fucking hate this Pope and every bullshit, fake, empty thing he says (Spoiler Alert: it’s going to be a lot about hypocrisy).

* This Pope resides in the Vatican while millions of his adherents live in poverty and subjugation due to the doctrines and teachings of his bullshit religion. The Vatican of 2015 is synonymous for money laundering, harbouring paedophiles, harbouring people who have committed crimes against humanity and all together being a dodgy as hell place that is a blight and embarrassment to our species in the 21st century.

* This Pope lives in immense wealth while millions of Catholics live below the poverty line having to resort to what ever they can do to survive. As Pope he has never had to starve, live on the streets, sell his body into the sex industry to make a pittance or resort to illegal activities (he oversees money laundering so he can stay filthy rich, not because he has no other choice to survive) such as being a drug mule in order to survive.

* Pope Francis supports George Pell (Australian Catholic Cardinal who covered up mass amounts of sexual abuse in the church) and even gave him a promotion in the Vatican LAST YEAR (2014)!!! This Pope is harbouring and promoting a man who should be on trial for being an accessory to crimes so heinous it would make you sick.

* AIDS IN AFRICA!!! How does it not piss everyone else off that this fucking, cunt Pope spends time touring around and hob knobbing with the wealthy, as he is currently doing in the U.S., when millions of Africans, who are too terrified to use a condom lest they be struck down by their god, ARE DYING IN DROVES?!?!?!? WHY IS HE NOT VISITING HOSPITALS IN AFRICA AND NURSING THESE PEOPLE HE IS HELPING TO KILL?!?!?! Because he is a two-faced, fake as hell arsehole, that’s why.

* This Pope loves to spruik about environmental issues, LGBTIQ issues and all the other issues that, if you are starving on the streets, forced into the sex or drug industry to survive, would be the last issues you would be thinking about. I am a greenie and I am pro LGBTIQ rights but I am aware that I have a fortunate life that allows me to be able to focus on such issues. When you are living at the top, as this Pope does, while your subjects are dying at the bottom it really makes you wonder is he just spurting these sentiments about ‘progressive’ issues to deflect attention away from all the evil he oversees and instruments???

I mean where was this ‘progressive’, ‘forward thinking’ Pope when Paraguay, a Catholic majority country, denied a 10 year old, rape victim the right to an abortion this year IN 2015 forcing her to give birth to her mother’s boyfriend’s (the rapist) baby. An incredibly dangerous and life threatening thing for a 10 year old to be forced to do, not to mention exceptionally psychologically scarring. WHERE WAS HE??? WHY DIDN’T HE INTERVENE??? I’ll tell you why because he is a worthless, disgusting excuse for a human being who thinks he can pull the wool over people’s eyes by distracting them with issues that the first-world wants to hear about. Total, dirty scumbag!

I could go on and on and on about why I hate this Pope, the Pope of 2015, but I won’t because the fact is the media are just as much to blame for not calling this dodgy, old piece of shit out on his garbage. He claims to be the Christian god’s representative on Earth (what a load of shit) but he doesn’t live in any way as the Jesus that is portrayed in Christianity lived. The Jesus portrayed in the Christian bible was poor, owned nothing but the clothes on his back, was humble, unassuming, honest, truthful etc. Basically everything that Pope Francis is not. (Yes, I know Jesus was also condescending, rude to his mother, not a very good teacher [if parables aren’t working buddy than change your M.O. Some people need their lessons as straight forward as possible] and a bit of a fig tree cursing lunatic).

I can not wait for the day, and I hope I am alive to see it, when the Vatican falls and the subjugated Catholics of the world take back the wealth, dignity and rights that have been, and still continue to be, stolen from them by this Pope in this day and age. It will be as emancipating and as incredible as when the Berlin wall fell. END RANT!

Although this song (written and performed by Tim Minchin in 2010) was written about Benedict XVI I think it is still relevant to Pope Francis.

I Could Care Less???

So this is just a random pet peeve of mine and since this is a site where any thought that comes into my head can be posted I have to say it just irks the hell out of me when I see/hear someone write/say “I could care less” when they are trying to convey how indifferent or how much they don’t care about a topic.

READ/LISTEN TO WHAT YOU ARE SAYING AND REALISE HOW MORONIC YOU ARE!!! If you could care less about a topic it means you care to some degree and therefore the care you have could be lowered. If you COULDN’T care less about a topic it means you are so void of care that trying to care any less would be impossible.

Where do these lazy, grammatically incorrect sayings come from??? Seriously annoying.

Gandhi blamed women for being raped, Coco Chanel was an antisemetic Nazi sympathiser and I seriously have to stop reading about iconic people I admire

The day I read what Gandhi said about rape of women I was incredibly crushed. No one had ever told me this man, who I had always admired and revered, said…

“I have always held that it is physically impossible to violate a woman against her will. The outrage takes place only when she gives way to fear or does not realize her moral strength. If she cannot meet the assailant’s physical might, her purity will give her the strength to die before he succeeds in violating her…It is my firm conviction that a fearless woman, who knows that her purity is her best shield can never be dishonoured. However beastly the man, he will bow in shame before the flame of her dazzling purity.”

WHAT?!?!?! I mean, seriously mate, WHAT THE F*CK?!?!?! I know he was from a different era and culture but I felt so bloody cheated when I read this. My father’s father was a Tamil from the Madras region of south India so I always had a warm and kindred feeling about old mate, victim blamer due to the fact he was a historic, iconic, freedom fighter and countryman to my Grandpappy. That was, of course, until I read he was a RAPE VICTIM BLAMER! Now, I don’t know how to feel. One part of me wants to write him off completely. Another part of me says he was ignorant and from a different era but the fact is his comments, as a revered leader, have really helped to reinforce the misogynistic, rape culture that India is currently battling. If a great man like the Mahatma blamed the victim of sexual assault then why can’t we too??? YUK!

And Coco!!! Sweet, little, I slept my way to the top (more power to you, girl!), slacks for women, costume jewellery, No. 5, Jew hating, Nazi sympathising Coco!!! Once again, read these details I had never heard of before and… was… crushed!!!

I know it seems stupid to care about these people who are long dead and buried but it’s just so confronting. You think you know everything important there is to know about an iconic person and then BAM! You find out they are the kind of person you would never invite around to share a Woolies cheese platter and a bottle of $15 white 😦 It’s very disheartening.

The Maiden Post

So here it is, the maiden post! Lower your expectations to floor level because this is not going to be anything awe inspiring or revolutionary. It’s just a general, little ‘hi’ and to say this site is going to basically be a bit of a mix of this and that.

Some posts I make will be super mundane and just a bit of a rant about something that’s been boiling my billy (people’s rudeness or a celebrity that is so moronic it hurts i.e Gwyneth Paltrow, don’t even get me started on that steamed vag), some posts will be about topics I am VERY passionate about (politics, human rights, environmental conservation, my opposition to theology etc.) so therefore will be a huge rant and some posts may just be a recipe, a song or a funny anecdote.

I am hoping to use this site as a bit of a sounding board to mull out some thoughts for some book ideas I have and although I won’t be putting too much up about my book ideas for fear I may actually post something decent and someone might tax it (yes, the chances are remote and slim but still! You never know, right? Things are only improbable, not impossible) I will definitely be posting about the topics that I have ideas for.

So who am I? Well no one especially shiny. I am a 30 year old, Australian woman of mixed blood/cultured parents. I currently live in Brisbane, QLD, Australia (my home city) and over the past 1.5 years I have been recovering from major burnout.

Long story short, I uprooted my life and moved 2000kms away to remote NW QLD for a job I was told was going to be a ‘fantastic opportunity’ (apparently they didn’t realise lies make baby Jesus and I cry). I worked in mining for close to three years. I was subjected to a disgustingly high workload, doing horrendous amounts of unpaid overtime, that left me fatigued, anxious, depressed and just plain burnt out (you don’t realise how important ‘down time’, exercise and sleep are until you can’t do any of them). When ever I informed my managers (yes, that’s right more than one manager AND funnily enough more than one dept., THREE depts. to be exact, comprising of twelve sub depts. to be the one Admin for!!! And lets not forget about the 20+ contracting companies either. All details they conveniently left out in the 2 phone interviews I had) my work situation was not acceptable I was then interrogated, bullied, harassed and told I was incompetent.

Needless to say, the whole situation left me very unhealthy mentally, emotionally and physically but although it almost killed me it did teach me a LOT about what lengths unethical, unscrupulous workplaces will go to save money on hiring adequate staff as well as showed me how low workplaces are willing to sink in order to bully and harass their staff, as I was not the only one they sunk their claws into. The only thing we all had in common was we spoke up for ourselves and didn’t just let their appalling workplace practices go unmentioned. They loved silent doormats they could wipe their feet on and we, with our backbones, were very terrifying to them.

The only silver lining from the whole mess was I educated myself on employee rights in my state, familiarised myself with the Fair Work Act 2009 and the QLD WH&S/OH&S Acts, joined a union and found my unyielding passion for workers’ rights. If I knew then what I know now things would never have been able to escalate to the dire situation it did. Nipping unethical workplace practices in the bud as soon as possible is the only way to try and survive until you can find a better place to work and the only way to nip said horrendous practices in the bud is by getting educated on employee rights.

So that’s just a little about me. I have had this site for a few years now but have never really cultivated it so I certainly hope to begin tapping out a few posts here and there.

WARNING: I am a contrarian so although I sit left on most issues sometimes I am not always the warm and fuzzy lefty. I am very passionate about a lot of issues and some of the stances I take may offend people but my motto is as long as you are not in sighting hate or violence against anyone, bullying or harassing anyone than everyone is entitled to their opinions no matter how crazy.
