The Deafening Silence Thursday, March 29, 2007 |

Once we had good people like Richard Naidu tell us the other point of view. Richard and and other bold people's silence is in fact deafening. In their absence, the propaganda machine of the current illegal thugs in power, continues without check.

Where once the CCF and Reverand Akuila Yabaki were vocal in the aftermath of coup in 2000, they remain silent in the face of threats from the army.

Daily we hear of atrocities committed by the army and yet, we as the people remain silent. The latest I heard were two separate instances where the army personnel at checkpoints made youths dance and run for extended periods simply for enjoying music from their loud car sound systems. How pathetic and childish is that! Shame on the army for behaving like schoolyard bullies. I guess we can't really expect much from the pea brained retards anyway.

The only ray of hope are the Unions right now. Their leadership have remained vocal and defiant despite clear threats from the Army.

The army and the thugs in power are claiming that the country continues to be governed within sort of a Public Security Decree. What nonsense! What security? What a load of BS!

At least bloggers like us are continuing to call a spade a spade! I hope Richard and others who spoke the truth do return to enlighten us on the REAL rights and wrongs.

Academics gone mad? Wednesday, March 21, 2007 |

First it was Steven Ratuva and now it is Satendra Nandan, publicly supporting the coups and praising Bainimarama. Earlier on Fiji One News, I had the dis-pleasure of watching Mr. Nandans statements in support of the coup.

He described the coup as a necessary evil and one which is lesser of the two evils. He went on to describe Bainimarama as a modern leader. This coup he reckons is the one coup which will wipe off all coups to come. I am not sure what he means by that, but one phrase which stuck out was his description of the Qarase government as "racial terrorism". The merits of the phrase aside, it is something I first heard used by Mahendra Chaudhry.

It all started making sense after that. Mr. Nandan is a Labour Party member and considering the dominance of the party in the illegal dictatorial regime current in the country, it is hardly surprising. The fact that Mr. Nandan is considered a prominent academic, it would easy for me to speculate on the policies of the Labour Party and it's origins. "Racial terrorism", is a word wank created by the party to appear more legitamate. They probably think that adding terrorism to any description makes it more credible. It's a cunning propaganda, which goes down well with the Indo-Fijian community.

What baffles me most, is how the so called academic in Mr. Nandan justified his support for the coup. He reckons that although the coup maybe illegal or unconsitutional, it is ethical and moral. What, as an academic he fails to understand, is that ethics and morality are not measurable and is totally subjective. Legalities though, are measurable and designed with great effort and care. Morality and ethics manifest differently in different people, whereas legalities are there to safeguard the society from whims of moral and ethical behaviour of others. Remember Hitler, Mussolini? Well now we can add Bainimarama/Chaudhry, Speight, and Rabuka to the list.

In a soccer match, the rules are there for all players all the time. Not at the mercy of some who may decide to change them half way through the match, for their benefit. The soccer match that was being played in our country had it's rules changed by Bainimarama and his bunch of losers called the RFMF. Along came others to join his team, those that didn't like the original rules and disagreed with the referees decisions. This bunch of losers can aptly be called "sore losers".

The so called academics should stop fooling the world by voicing their opinions to disguise the true ambitions of their political affilliates. In case of Mr. Nandan, I hope that he quitely retires to maintain the remaining brain cells in the old and senile head on his shoulders. He is starting sound more like an old fool then one who should be remembered as a wise old man.

The Big Bullies aka "The Gun Toting Cowards" Monday, March 12, 2007 |

Yesterday (Sunday) the military using their firepower illegally took over a piece of land belonging to the Nivis Motors in Nabua.

This is the end result of months of legal wrangling over the piece of land which the then Qarase government wanted to help "ease" the traffic jam issue around the Nabua roundabout. I am not sure what the issue was really about, but if the retarded roads engineers in this country ever thought that the acquisition of that piece of land was going to be the solution to all of the traffic issues in the Suva-Nausori corridor, then they seriously need to get their heads examined. The whole traffic related issue in that corridor needs a comprehensive solution and not just trying to easing traffic in a small stretch of about a quarter mile.

Nivis Motors had even provide a solution for the standoff documented in their website: www.nabuaroundabout.com. Of course our roads and traffic management authorities have pulled a wool over their eyes to the whole issue and have now sought the assistance of the Big Bullies in town, the Gun Toting Cowards in the RFMF.

What a sad case! It shows real maturity of our people in this country. These bastards are continuing to make laughing stock of us around the world. It is so embarrassing to carry around a Fijian Passport nowadays.

To Nivis Motors: Fight on guys. Stick one to the bullies, through the courts.

Retards in our Society Saturday, March 10, 2007 |

Life can be a frustrating experience especially when living side by side with those members of society who obviously belong in a prison or a mental asylum. Unfortunately when these people gain control of a state, life can become living hell.

I can imagine how frustrating life would have been for the Germans in the two world wars, the Italians during Mussolini's reign, the Soviets with Stalin, and the Americans with George Bush. I can imagine because, amidst this, so called society in Paradise, we have bunch of people who have made life a very unsavory experience.

These include people who we thought of as beacons of hope in our fledgling nationalistic democracy during the SDL government days. People we least expected to guide us into a life of hopelessness, dictatorship and ruin.

The roll call include the following:

  1. Frank Bainimarama (leader of the RFMF retards, who somehow think they are better qualified to investigate corruption. What a laugh!)
  2. Mahendra Chaudhry (the most bitter man in Fijian Politics)
  3. Aiyaz Saiyad Khaiyum (no beacon in the past life of our nation, but a new breed of opportunist)
  4. Bernadette Ganilau (probably the most retarded of the bunch)

These people have not only usurped power by illegal means, but continue to use the local media to push their own agenda. They make statements as if the people of this country are either incapable of understanding the issues or are stupid.

This makes me wonder how intelligent or mentally stable these people really are?

Speculations about Frank's mental state should perhaps be taken seriously. One of those rumors have been that Frank was actually treated at the St. Giles hospital (Fiji's only hostpital to treat and care for the mentally handicapped).

Chaudhry is perhaps still bitter about losing two general elections and this illegal act makes it quite obvious. This man's action reeks of revenge. How else do you describe his participation into something blatantly wrong. He seriously needs to examine everything he ever stood for. His principles have been compromised and he can now never be trusted. Like most of his fellow perpetrators, I hope to see him rot in jail one day.

Aiyaz is simply, a very stupid person. He has now shown, that he has no ethics. A permanent apologist for the regime and their main legal "wanker" (equivalent to "word wanker").

Ms. Ganilau is perhaps the most disappointing person on the list. Considering her standing in the society, I have no idea why she has chosen to be part of something so wrong. It looks very much like a stupid move. That makes her the most retarded of the bunch.

These are the real retards of our society and such should be treated with the contempt they deserve. A real threat to our society's coherence and the sooner they are put behind bars the sooner we can move forward.

The rotten Shaista's and "Statesmen" have been busy... Thursday, March 08, 2007 |

...Busy making fools of themselves and trying really hard to fool the populace. Looking very foolish in the process, but succeeding only to scare the silent majority. The gullible are becoming more vocal knowing the side they're on have the power.

All aside, I am back writing again.

Since I've been hibernating, Shaista Shameen of Fiji Human Rights Commission has threatened to take the US Human Rights report on Fiji (http://www.state.gov/g/drl/rls/hrrpt/2006/78773.htm) to court. Obviously the report wasn't clear enough to Ms. Shameen so the US Government will "...have some explaining to do if required by the court under Order 52 of the High Court Rules." (The Fiji Times - 07/03/2007). To deflect attention she will quickly clog the court system up with another useless case. What a joke! In case Ms. Shameen missed them, she might want to ask Amnesty - http://www.amnestyusa.org/regions/asia/document.do?id=ENGASA180012007 for some explanation as well.

Ms. Shameen is definitely in the running the Rotten Statesperson of the day award.
