Gee, I do wonder what we the multitudes are doing to Generalisimo Frankistein that frightens him so ?
And, oh I also see here in the newspaper that Cranky Voranky and his so called Attorney General ayrse-wipe wish to bestow a new Constitution on the great unwashed ... wippeee whoo !
Well first I just want to say this to Voranky ...... Constitutions (please pronounce this carefully- it's not "conti-shoeshine") are usually ordained and established by the people.
Patrick Henry , the man who once said : " GIVE ME LIBERTY or GIVE ME DEATH" also said :
"The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government......."But of course Voranksky won't understand this because his version of his (very own) conti-shoeshine will be "ordained and established" not by the people, but by only 2 people - himself 'The Tyrant', and his Aiyars-kick.
"Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.
See I am a simple housewife and grandmother . The way I see it is like this. We have 2 forces pushing and shoving each other on an everyday basis in Fiji. First we have the power-hungry military regime bullies, who operate like they have to show their power everyday (and bugger everything else including the economy).
Mark Tokarski (Amercian Philosopher) said about power :
"Power is as power does. Power does not exist on its own or sit there like toothpaste on a shelf waiting to be grabbed by a shopper. Power is grown, taken by force, nurtured, exercised and used to to grow more power."The decrees that Aiyarse-wipe puts out almost on a daily basis is the basis for the junta's power-grabbing Vogons who do this on Vorenky's instructions solely to atomise and isolate the Fijian population from each other. Like Hitler's regime, Bai and Arsi's sole aim is to strike petrified fear into all and sundry & get abject compliance in all things. All that does not serve the regime's purpose must be expunged.
Because of this we see fear in the populace, and this makes the regime happy because the power is growing (together with the paisa , and the arrogance) as fast as jungle wabosucu.
However, I am reminded of why the regime is continually vomiting decree after draconian decree. It is simply because they are afraid of the people and what they think.
For this reason I am secretly nourished by the great writer Terry Pratchett who wrote "Small gods" when he said:
What amazing truth he speaks ... one only has to look at the recent uprisings around the world to bear witness to this reality !
In 1978, a science fiction comedy series created by Douglas Adams, called , The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was released, told the story of The Vogons, a fictional alien race from the planet Vogsphere
Vogons are horrid and slug-like but vaguely humanoid, are bulkier than humans, and have green skin. Vogons are described as mindlessly bureaucratic, aggressive, having "as much sex appeal as a road accident" and the writers of "the third worst poetry in the universe".
Here is what to do if you want to get a lift from a Vogon: forget it.
They are one of the most unpleasant people on Earth. Quite evil, also bad-tempered, bureaucratic, officious and callous.
They wouldn't even lift a finger to save their own grandmothers from the Ravenous NurBano Beast of Baal without orders signed in triplicate, sent in, sent back, queried, lost, found, subjected to public inquiry, lost again, and finally buried in mangrove for three months and recycled as No.1 Commerce Commission price-regulated prescription drug for diarrhoea.
The best way to get a drink out of a Vogon is to stick your finger down his throat, and the best way to irritate him is to feed his grandmother to the Ravenous NurBano Beast of Baal. Also, on no account should you allow a Vogon to read decrees at you.
Through sheer obstinacy, though, the Vogons survived (partly by adapting a misplaced, badly malformed, and dyspeptic liver into a brain). They then emigrated en masse to their own star cluster where they form most of their bureaucracy, and patrol the galaxy demolishing planets wherever they go.
Hmm .. sounds familiar ..
Just so you recognise a Vogon when you come across them .. they are roughly human-sized, although much bulkier, with green or grey skin from drinking too much kava. Their noses are above their eyebrows from wanna-being-highfalutin all the time. Because of the severe bureaucracy they operate under this is the reason their noses are so flat - from being repeatedly smacked in the face by the paddle creatures under the sand on Vogsphere whenever they had an independent thought.
"The frightening thing about the Vogons was their absolute mindless determination to do whatever mindless thing it was they were determined to do. There was never any point in trying to appeal to their reason because they didn't have any."_______
Well I don't know about you but I for one refuse to belong to Foreqe's Vogonsphere, and as Bubu ramps it up for 2012 , the power of the pen beckons once more.... let's hear it again from Patrick Henry:
"for this is the only way we can hope to arrive at truth and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings."All aboard ragone's .. let's make this year we take the Vogon mothership DOWN !!!!
