Coats to coast...
Looks like we are in the rinse cycle for a while down here
wet, wet, wet...

Which is why the “war on drugs” thinking is so dumb.
But the 'war on thinking'
is going pretty well,
...and we're only just starting to get a glimpse at how much may have been diverted and spent, on that particular area of governmental paranoia!
To what end?
the ‘numbers’ add up…
Why doesn’t the US just buy the lot …
I think they probably do
one way or another
good ‘ol boys’ hooks
in to click the ticket
as it passes through
to explode in silence -
dead fingers don’t talk…
throw your alms around me…
Things are strange all over at the moment,
there is a disturbance in ‘The Force’ ,
or at least an outbreak of ‘Novelty’
co-existing with uncloaked realities…
change and cycles
chains n sickles
there’s no logic
I for one have always valued your comments/contributions, perhaps not always agreed, but I have had my eyes (and mind) opened further by access to a different viewpoint.
I suspect some shelves of our libraries are very similar, and that despite your observations above, Public Address does give us all ‘Common Ground’ – a welcome respite from the ‘Blasted Heath’ other similar sites can present.
I see ‘begging’ as just one word on the continuum of ‘asking’ or ‘informing’… I didn’t read any imploring, beseeching or sponging elements into Russell’s post – just a lifting of the bonnet to reveal the engine and the observation that it does need lubricating and powering – ya don’t need to be a Toyota to get the corollary…
and one can act as one sees fit…
I don’t mind a tithe to a community I live in
or access to their attention should I have something to offer
quid pro quo
And then again it is sometimes good to pull back and get away from the devices and too much information (I’ve done that myself here).
hope to see you back
Loud conversation at Ohope beach
look at all the space they're taking up, too!
Some beings are sooo shellfish....
Let down by her editors perhaps...
I didn’t read this until Sunday night.
don't worry - it was cancelled,
ground still too wet...
do the gig guide every Friday
The Press does do a pretty good job with Go...
I just cherry pick anything that interests me
or seems underpublicised
or seems like it would be useful
or of (wide or narrow) interest to PA
or if people I know are involved
- with my usual 'random factor ethic'.
It would be better done earlier
than the day before too, but hey...
I wonder does Lorde (Ella/Joel) get live performance royalties from the Springsteen concert cover?
How does that work?
Is it based on crowd size or door take?
If the TPPA goes through we will be laid open to the predations of the great corporations – most of whom pay little or no tax if possible – how does that benefit us?
Twenty-six of the most powerful American corporations – such as Boeing, General Electric, and Verizon – paid no federal income tax from 2008 to 2012, according to a new report detailing how Fortune 500 companies exploit tax breaks and loopholes.
The report, conducted by public advocacy group Citizens for Tax Justice (CTJ), focuses on the 288 companies in the Fortune 500 that registered consistent profit every year from 2008 to 2012. Those 288 profitable corporations paid an “effective federal income tax rate of just 19.4 percent over the five-year period — far less than the statutory 35 percent tax rate,” CTJ states.
..and the US Government is a bunch of prevaricators – I see The Atlantic has ripped apart the Pentagon’s spin that they were stripping the military back to pre WWII levels…
apologies to the crows nest!
I like seeing what’s going on.
Sorry, I forgot to tell you about the most important festival Dramfest - but it was sold out and you probably already knew, right?
Maybe they could widen it out to a bigger
barrel party or even a 'Drami Gras'...
Royals ... I was kinda half right on the Bruce Springsteen kiwi opener,
even though i was joking!
Do those lyrics work from a 64-year-old?
- but nice anyway, good on him.
