Ulcerative Colitis Diary: Week Two On Prednisolone

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on January 31, 2011

                                                           Week Two

Green = How well I feel 1 being the best and 10 being the worse.

Blue = Depression. Again, on a scale as above.

Treatment for: Ulcerative Colitis.

Medication, Direction and Course as follows:

Prednisolone : Take four 5mg Tablets daily for four weeks, then cut down to one tablet a day each week over the next four weeks.

Day 8 Tue 24th 2011: I feel bloated, not been to the toilet today, I don’t like when my body holds on to it for a few days. Though, having said that, I’m having more of these days, which is a good thing as I never had them is this frequency without the Prednisolone. (?) (?)

Day 9 Wed 25th 2011: Still feel bloated and not been to the toilet yet. Mood, low-ish. No other differences. (6/10) (5/10)

Day 10 Thu 26th 2011: Sleeping pattern well and truly back to front, so spoke to Daff and Sam for a few hours in early hours while writing a blog. Later in the evening, when I woke, had to go to the toilet. Gotta say, felt better! Hey! Who doesn’t right? hahaha. Wasn’t as bad as last time pain and time wise, which could be a good sign! (4/10) (6/10)

Day 11 Fri 27th 2011: Seeing as I slept most of the Day, this isn’t really an entry for the day, because I’ll be up all night. But for the sake of not complicating things I’ll write it anyway. Woke up, was a little bloated, had a pain in my left side, had at all last night. So far I haven’t been to the toilet. Things seem same as always, besides the rapid heart beat I get with these tablets. I woke up about three or four hours after getting to sleep with a rapid heart beat, like I’d been running or something. Went away anyway. These funny sleeping hours make my mood worse and make me want to sleep more often too, which isn’t a good thing. (5/10) (6/10)

Day 12 Sat 28th 2011: Woke up in the afternoon with a pain in my left side, just under my rib cage. I’ve had it a few times (before the steroids), there’s a lump there too, not sure if it’s just a pulled muscle or something else. Will ask the Doc about it next time I see him.

Other than that woke up with bloating. Went to the toilet, felt better afterwards. It was a little better formed, so progress seems to be being made. However, unless I have this all the time then it isn’t getting better and could just be a blip. We’ll see what happens. Um, it’s 1am on Sunday 29th and got a morning of sod all to do! (4/10) (5/10)

Day 13 Sun 29th 2011: Got to sleep around 6AM Sunday Morning, woke up around 1:30PM. Will be awake now for the rest of the day, and will go to bed around 11pm. So far no been to the toilet and there’s been no pain yet, but a little bit of bloating as of  7:48pm. Current mood and feeling: (4/10) (6/10). Got  to bed quite early, 12am.

Day 14 Mon 30th 2011: Woke up 10AM or so, wasn’t bloated but was hungry. After that I went to my room and messed with the guitar for a while, it still isn’t tuned! Will try again soon. I end up feeling really tired around 3:10PM, not sure if it was medications, illness, mood or a combo of all! I’ve had it before so it isn’t the Steroids doing it.  I slept for about two hours! I’m going to be up late again tonight because of that! I noticed I’ve been peeing more than I usually do. Not sure if that’s the steroids or not. But if you think about it, I will have an excess of water if my bowel is working properly? Stands to reason if my motions are being dehydrated properly? Anyway, things seem to be a little calmer, though I’m not going to say 100%, because not everything is as it seems or can go backwards pretty quickly with this illness! (4/10) (7/10)

Day 14-15 30th 1st: (UPDATE) Can’t sleep, have a rapid heart beat on and off. I really am out of reasons why my sleeping pattern goes tits up or I just can’t sleep some times. Is it medication, natural or illness? Either way, my appetite is getting bigger and I can eat more too without bloating, which I couldn’t do before! However, must have some self-control. Ah wait, I have none!

So I’m awake at 4:35AM and I’m feeling all fucked off and Nihilistic.

Ah! That’s better! 😀

Why Arabs Are Having To Fight For Democracy

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on January 28, 2011

There’s been recent riots by the people in Tunisia, Jordan and Egypt for Democracy. Why now? Have they only just got sick of totalitarian Government’s that deny them certain freedoms?

Well, since the economic down turn there’s been fewer jobs to go around in the Arab world, especially for the younger and better educated younger generations. Yes, there’s been economic problems in the middle east and Arab world before, but that was in the past when information was restricted to state TV and Radio. These days they have the Internet, Mobile phones and numerous free News Papers. So basically the modern age has taken the blind fold off the Arab countries’ populations’ and they can now see what scum have been running their countries and lives.

For the past fifty Years, many Arab nations have been run by hard-line Totalitarian Muslim regimes, which have been supported by the West for the sake of stability. I think, that in itself explains a lot about the problem. With Islam, it’s so tied to the past, tradition and God, that the people will readily give the Government power to enforce certain Religious and Sharia based Laws on the population. When you give Government’s the right to tell people what they can and can’t wear, listen to, say, do, believe in and many other mundane things, then is it any wonder they end turning in to Semi, or complete totalitarian states? And with the West condoning them, that only makes matters worse.

I’m really hoping this wave of Democratic protest sweeps across the Arab world and liberates the people from Totalitarianism and delivers them in to a Democratic system. I don’t just want the people to become content when they have the jobs and some concessionary freedoms any Government offers them. If they become content at that point then Totalitarianism will creep back in and their religion will be used against them again and be used to justify Islamic laws and cultural traditions that will restrict their freedoms once more. And that will defeat the whole object of what they’re currently doing.

Good luck to those fighting for their rights!

What Chance Do I Have?

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on January 28, 2011

I received a letter from the Open University this week, about the course I applied for. I decided to expand my horizons a little and gain some solid foundations in which to maybe build a future career out of. The course I chose is Politics, Philosophy and Economics, known in academic circles as PPE. It seems the right choice as I have an interest in Politics and the world that surrounds it. Notable people with the degree include the current Prime Minister, David Cameron, Ed Balls, Ed Miliband and a significant others in Parliament and outside of it.

They Open University has agreed to pay my fees for me, and all I have to do now is sign the papers and send them back and I start my study in May. It’s a three-year course, just like for anyone else who’d be studying it, except I’m doing it from home, in an extended form as I was late getting my application in for the January start date. I am going to do it, health permitting, and get to the end of it.

What’s bothering me though is the same thing that’s bothered me before, what chance do I really have of changing things for the better with this Degree behind me? I’ve always known trying to gain a foot on the Political ladder would be almost impossible, especially seeing the back ground I come from, the fickle nature of the electorate and utter corruption and Party Political games in local and national Government.

I don’t have the luxury of connections like the PPE degree holders from Oxford and Cambridge do, to get myself a job. The electorate is so blinded by hollow fake promises, image, outright lies, unwillingness to accept reality and such ideological adherence that I have little chance of even being voted in to local Government.  Corruption in Politics is so wide-spread, fostered and allowed to happen, that it’s seen as normal and “The way it is”. When I say that, I don’t mean your traditional idea of corruption, this corruption is sanctioned and accepted as part and parcel of the system. The expenses system was only the tip of the Iceberg of that legal corruption, it goes on beyond that and still continues now, you just don’t see it, and politicians don’t mention it because they don’t want to draw even more attention to themselves and their dealings. In fact they probably think there’s nothing wrong with it, just like they did with the expenses system. There’s also the fact I couldn’t work with any of the established Parties at any end of the Political spectrum, especially the main three, I can not operate under those conditions, I can’t, no!… I wont willingly support bills and amendments I don’t believe in or that are not in the interests of my constituents or the population as a whole, just because the Party Whip and Cabinet say so. I wont sit in interviews on TV or in an MP surgery and defend actions by Party, Government or individual MP’s within that Party who’ve proposed, done or said something I disagree with.

If that wasn’t enough to put me off even trying to enter the world of Politics, I was watching a TV programme today presented by Andrew Neil. It was called: Posh and Posher: Why Do Public School Boys Run Britain. The previous link takes you to the BBC website where you can watch it. This link takes you to the written run down of the show.

It was this little piece, which I have to say made my heart sink:

That man is just like me, and he’s been excluded from the internal Labour ballot, in favour for someone else, who lives outside the area he’s supposed to represent.

Now, how often do we see and hear about that? How many Politicians in recent years have come from privileged backgrounds? MP’s who don’t know what it’s actually like to scrape by on the bottom, or near the middle? They don’t have a clue, Cameron doesn’t have a clue, his whole front bench don’t have a clue, most of the people in Parliament don’t have a clue. And if they don’t have a clue… how can they represent the people?

In the programme I linked to above, Andrew Neil makes a very valid point, State Schools can’t compete with Public/Private schools (They’re the same thing). Since the removal of Grammar Schools and the Eleven Plus, social mobility is suffering, the many gifted and intelligent undeveloped poor and Working class people in this country, not just in the Political sphere, but in the Economic, business and any other high paying areas of the job market, are missing out on good jobs because of their background.

I know the eleven plus was unfair, I know of a few people who were bright but passed over because they failed their eleven plus. However, that still doesn’t mean selecting the brightest children and sending them to a Grammar school or something similar is wrong. With a less strict system, and more room for variation, we could have a similar scheme set up again and try to bring about a better Meritocracy than the old system fostered. Look at private schooling anyway, you only get what you pay for, not everyone comes out of there with top marks, I’m sure the tutors mark a few papers with extra ticks. Not everyone from public/private school are as intelligent as British society and the public schools themselves would make them out to be. While  on the subject of education I see no reason why people who aren’t as bright as others can not go to a Vocational High School where they continue to learn about the three R’s and also learn numerous skilled trades, after all, that is what the UK is currently missing. The State has focused entirely on getting as a many people in to a one size fits all education system which then wants to push them on to University, thus leaving us with a skilled worker shortage. This, in my opinion, was what was missing from the Tripartite System in the past. We had Grammar schools for the brightest and a bog standard secondary school for everyone else, where was the vocational training? Of course it was left to the employers,  or the Unions, which was an area where they had some power, I think that may be why the Secondary Technical Schools never came about fully. All the above flies in the face of a Egalitarian system, but this isn’t an issue of fairness and equality, people have different abilities, and they need to be harnessed to their full potential. We’re just not doing that with bog standard state schools and then pushing as many of them off to University as possible.

I digress, but the above is important to my post. With such an exclusive system, how am I or anyone else from my background going to get ahead? It’s the year 2011 and our country is being governed by privileged public school boys, the Politicians can say all they like it’s not about where you’re from but about what you do, it still doesn’t change the fact a minority of wealthy people in this country have the top places in Government, Economics and the Judiciary. So with University tuitions fees going to rise, a state education system that’s lacking as regards to producing and elevating the best and brightest to the top, it looks like the future of British Political leadership, as well as other areas, will remain in the hands and be the profession of the rich and privileged. And leaves me, and many others asking the question: What Chance Do I have?

Coalition Government Deprives Salford and Manchester Of £2bn Investement!

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on January 26, 2011

Today the Coalition Government shelved plans to invest £2 billion pounds in to Salford and Manchester, citing lack of funds and the fact it was a Labour plan they just couldn’t deliver on. Minster of State for Housing and Local government, Grant Shapps, said: “This plan just isn’t feasible, in fact it couldn’t have been carried out under the previous Government, unless they borrowed more money, which was out of the question then, and certainly out of the question now.” 

Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles, also said: “With the huge deficit we were left with, we just can’t afford these schemes anymore, these are hard times, and hard times call for hard decisions, which is one we have to take now. We are truly sorry for the people in those North West cities that suffer with the problems they do, but at the moment we just can’t help.”

Hazel Blears, leader of the Labour North West Group, said Salford and Manchester were: ” Paying the price for the coalition’s cruel cuts.” Miss Blears added: “It usually happens this way, first comes a Tory Government, then comes Tory cuts, then comes Salford and Manchester suffering under those cuts, while Councils and Cities of the South will see their budgets rise. It’s disgraceful!”

There has been fierce debate in recent weeks as to why the plans and funding have really be stopped. Some people have pointed to ITV TV Presenter Jeremy Kyle. Mr. Kyle, who is the presenter of the Jeremy Kyle show, the UK’s answer to Jerry Springer. Kyle’s show, which is filmed at the Manchester based Granada Studios, draws 75% of it’s on stage guests, 100% of it’s in house audience and 60% of the TV audience from Salford and Manchester.

Mr. Kyle said: “To say that my campaign, my small campaign, is completely responsible for the stopping of investment in to Salford and Manchester is absurd! I would like to think  it was souly responsible, but it just isn’t true.” When asked about his campaign to stop investment in to Salford and Manchester he had this to say: “Well, where will I be, where will my crew be, where will ITV be if Salford and Manchester are ‘depopulated’ as the MOD put it? I’d be out of a job, my crew would be.”

Ms. Blears said said Jermey Kyle and people like him, we’re being “selfish” and obstructing the regeneration of Salford and Manchester, purely for their own monetary benefit. She said: “Not letting the MOD proceed with the carpet bombing of Salford and Manchester (Operation: Kill The Lot) was outright wrong and denying the Cities a new Birth.” She continued: “Jeremy Kyle has the ear of the PM and deputy PM as they’re both big fans of his show, there’s also the fact the Tory party can’t bring itself to wreck a good private business like ITV. I ask you, what is better? A new Salford and Manchester or shareholders of ITV? I think you know which matters most

When asked about her insistence and urgency for Manchester and Salford to be wiped off the map she balked: “I assume you’re referring to that story in the Daily Mail? The one where I apparently want the area bombed quickly so I get my 12 thousand acres of virgin land? It’s all rubbish, I’m here for a new birth of Salford, and anyway, it was 12 hundred, not 12 thousand. And, why shouldn’t I have some? When the people from Oxford and the other Home counties are brought up to resettle the area I think it’s right there be someone local to ease them in to their transition here.”

The MOD said it was ready and willing when Westminster gave it the green light to lay waste to the “Scruffy little fuckers”. Untill then it’s Jets were ready and waiting.

The Population of Salford and Manchester were still not bothered about the proposed plans a full two years after they were announced. They seem completely oblivious to the huge 50 foot wall being built around the two cities by gleeful Liverpudlians and Anti-MUFC fans from all around the country. One Liverpudlian said: “”bout time they were wiped out init, la? We’ve had 50 odd years of bad jokes, Manchester United, Scallies and shit music, I’m glad the Government’s doin’ somert about it! Once the Liberal Democrats and Labour force a vote on the issue in Parliament the bombs will fall, and this wall will stop any of them escaping!” Loud cheers were heard all around the area of wall we were interviewing at.

The residents with any brains have long since left the two cities and settled elsewhere. It’s believed there’s only the lazy, stupid, Scallies, Chavs, Scrotes and non english speaking immigrants who don’t understand what’s going on. However, one fed up resident said he had a bit of bad luck and was stuck in Manchester because he couldn’t sell his house. The man, who only gave his name as “A bit fed up” said: “I’ve invested a lot of money in this house, and I’m not prepared to lose it! I tried to sell it but who of the people left in the City would buy a house? They’re all idiots!” Curiously 91% of the population still remains, which shows just what everyone was thinking all this time, that Salford and Manchester is full of idiots and wankers devoid of any sense. Except ‘A bit fed up’, who’s a bit unfortunate.

We just got word, the vote is in, there’s a resounding Yes vote in Parliament. Bombing begins in 10 minutes!

Ulcerative Colitis Diary: Week 1 on Prednisolone

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on January 25, 2011

 

                                                        WEEK 1

I say the UC Prof last week (Jan 12th 2011), he couldn’t give me the Prednisolone because he was going to be moving on from his job there. So I had to see my regular Doctor at the local surgery to get them. I went on Tuesday 18th of January 2011. I got my Flu vac before I saw the Doc, who I had an interesting and shocking chat with about the NHS, but that’s a subject for another blog. I’m going to need help from that vac while I’m on Prednisolone as it reduces the immune system response in my body. My immune system may be reduced, but I still have one and it needs all the help it can get.

Green = How well I feel 1 being the best and 10 being the worse.

Blue = Depression. Again, on a scale as above.

Medication, Direction and Course as follows:

Prednisolone : Take four 5mg Tablets daily for four weeks, then cut down to one tablet a day each week over the next four weeks.

Day 1 Tue 18th Jan 2011: I was already feeling bloated and uncomfortable on this day, so if taking the Prednisolone was to cause any problems I probably wouldn’t know. Anyway, took four 5mg Prednisolone tablets. No noticeable effects. (5/10) (5/10)

Day 2 Wed 19th Jan 2011: Haven’t been to the toilet properly yet, so I’m going to count that as an effect. I did go and did bleed, but not like I usually do. Felt down on and off, which is normal for me on any given day.  (5/10) (6/7)

Day 3 Thu 20th Jan 2011:  Not been to the toilet all day, but have felt bloated all day. I’ve been feeling depressed all day, more longer than usual. My obsessive mindset is more active. It’s making me feel more Nihilistic, isolated, angry and sad. I have a feeling these will be a constant throughout the course. Though I expected as much, just annoys the shit out of me, along with the rapid heartbeat! (6/10) (7/10)

Day 4 Fri Jan 21st 2011: Today I was on the toilet for over two hours, that was mostly due to not going every day like I usually do due to the UC. I must eat less so as not to feel so bloated and full. It’s hard to believe the amount I used to eat before I got UC, I can eat a lot now, but nowhere near like I used to. The only reason I put weight on is because I eat small portions of rubbish foods. Anyway, my mood hasn’t been that down today, been sort of level, I think when I do get in to a depressed state the Prednisolone makes it worse or prolongs it. So, Must try to stay positive! 😛 (5/10) (5/10)

Day 5 Sat Jan 21st 2011: Well, today, I was neutral when I woke up, and gradually become sort of happier, I was giggly and laughing. This happens now and again with my mood (not very often), so I don’t know if I can put this mood down to natural fluctuations or the Prednisolone. Anyway, I had some spicy tomato sauce with poppadoms, um, shouldn’t have done that! Sent me to the toilet, 5 or 6 times! I did bleed. I got sick of eating cheesy sauces, pasta and Chicken! Wont be eating the tom sauce again! (6/10) (3/10)

Day 6 Sun 22nd 2011: Feel low again today, not much to eat but muffins and spam, oh and Potatoes! Wonderful! I now hate spam! Potatoes are going to be next! Feeling a little ill since I ate the tomato sauce. Not much change so far.  (6/10) (6/10)

Day 7 Mon 23rd 2011: Woke up late today, 11:30am, not a good thing for me. I like to try and keep a routine, otherwise I end up sleeping 12 hours and waking up for 3 to 4 hours, then bed again. It isn’t good for my mood or my health. So I’m gonna try and fix that. When I got up this morning I went to the toilet, only twice though, which was a relief! I did bleed, but not much. So far the UC still seems to be the same and the only noticeable side effect is a rapid heart beat. (5/10)  (5/10)

MySpace Wankers

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on January 23, 2011

Yes, I am alive! Not posted much this week for one reason or another, but I will be posting next week again. Untill then, enjoy this lovely MySpace retro blog.

The first MySpace Conservatives (Reps) I came across on MySpace. Originally posted on: 23rd Aug 2007.

_______________________________________________________________________________ 

 

A couple of days ago I was browsing through the news and politics section when I came across everybody’s favourite intellectually challenged US Conservative, Docmanjay™ (TM stands for Terminal Moron by the way). Now I don’t usually comment on his ideologically flawed blogs because they are well…. flawed. I fail to see the point of arguing, defending and debating ideology because to me it’s defending the indefinable. Anyway back on course. Conservative this conservative that blah blah blah it’s a Crusade blah blah blah Blow ’em all to hell! blah blah blah If you don’t support us you’re un-American blah blah and more of the same… every fucking week! What persuaded me to leave a comment this time was the way Mr. Docman™, took it upon himself to speak for the whole entire U.S. military armed forces in Iraq by way of a video. The video showed some U.S. troops having a laugh and a dance, fair enough – I wouldn’t care otherwise, what pissed me off was that he was using this to say that the U.S. army was not tired and did not want to come home. What also pissed me off was the reason they were there and who they were sent there by… something Docman™ and his friends never focus on. So me being me and not sugar coating things I said this…

 I bet they wont be smiling and dancing when they have their balls shot off? I bet they also wont be smiling and dancing when they finally realize they’ve been sent there to lose their various body parts to raise the bank accounts of some of the U.S. administration. How very sad….

Yes what I said was cold but very valid and true! I also wrote this in the knowledge someone would reply and from then on I would try to broach or focus on the subject of why they are there. Someone did answer and here’s what was said…

Wednesday aka Liz: “Hey Asshole!! What did they do to you? Someone shit in your scrambeled eggs this morning?? You have to go and say stupid shit like that? grow up!!

Me: “Firstly, congratulations on missing my point… well done. Secondly, they didn’t do anything to me and I never said they did. What I was trying to point out was that this video is putting a positive spin on a debacle of war that was started purely for the bank accounts and companies of some the American administration. All I wrote was the truth and what will/already has happened and why it happened. So if you still think we all went there to rid Saddam of his WMD’s and liberate the Iraqis… then your country’s in deep trouble.” Notice how I told her that  her Government sent them there to make them money?

Wednesday aka Liz: “So I suppose you rather they be miserable and moping around all day??” Notice how she totally missed what I said about her Government and resorted to what she thinks are personal attacks? How very conservative.

The video did nothing of the sort… putting a positive spin on war??

Take off your glasses… and clean them….

All they were doing was dancing around and having a good time… which is obviously something you can NOT do cause the first thing you said was something mean and cruel. Are you that bitter and unhappy with your own life you have to bring others down with you??”

Me:”No I don’t want them to mope around all day. They shouldn’t even be there to mope or dance around in the first place..

Yes the video does put a positive view or spin on the war. People will see it and think – “It can’t be all that bad can it…? they’re happy”. Whereas the reality is charred bodies, missing limbs, mutilation, body bags etc… In fact one of the points of this blog was to show how the army is not tired and doesn’t want to come home. Therefore the video is showing a positive spin on the debacle of Iraq. If you showed what I just mentioned in a video it would be viewed as negative because it shows the casualties, which by the way the US TV networks do not show. Hence… happy looking troops shown to the US population = a happy population that’s supportive of the war. Switch the dancing troops with dead or mutilated ones and you have the opposite effect.

What i said was cold but that is just the way I see the world, I see the truth no matter how much you try to dress it up. What I said will happen and has happened to some unfortunate person for not one good reason at all and that’s what I despise! Not for the defense of the US, UK, the Iraqi people or any other nation, just purely for oil, money and the bank accounts of the US administration! 1000’s of lives dead and family affected, tears and blood shed for NOTHING!! except for a group of corrupt politicians and big business!

As for the end bit of your comment. You don’t know me or the type of person I am.. you can only guess and look at my profile to get a slight idea. You’re just guessing about me, ultimately it’s your opinion of me anyway so I see no reason to defend a view of myself that is held by someone else, especially a person I don’t know

After all the above had transpired The intellectual behemoth that is Docmanjay™ had this to say…

Docmanjay™: “Wow.. You are a pathetic!

Notice how he can’t debate to save his life? Unless it’s about his ideology and even then he’s debating something that is immortaly flawed. I did try to reply to this but as ever with Mr TM he blocks you from writing back because he just doesn’t have the balls or the intelligence to debate. At least Wednesday aka Liz had the balls to attempt to debate even if that Conservative blind spot prevents her from seeing the truth. 

Here’s my reply to Docmanjay™, if he ever reads it [I don’t think he ever did]:

I’m pathetic? I’m not the one that lives in and supports a country where if you have an opinion and it’s not in support of your Government or shite ideology you are shunned. I’m not the one that lives in and supports a country where if you have an opinion in the work place on politics you may lose your job! I’m not the one with a media that’s run by corporations, with media companies that are scared to criticize or question their Government and still thinks it’s free! I’m not the one that doesn’t realize that his country has been under what is effectively a news blackout for the last 50 years! I’m not the one that still hasn’t figured out his President is a dirty stinking liar that has sent thousands of his fellow countrymen and others around the world to their deaths for the sake of his friends bank accounts and US big business. I’m not the one that stupidly sees the Iraq war and “War on terror” as a crusade! I’m not the one that hasn’t actually tweekd yet that the number one real reason for the war was to preserve the petrodollar. I’m not the one that peddles Conservatism as the answer to all the US’s problems. Finally, you call me pathetic for pointing out the truth, be it in a cold way but still the truth. Yet your Government sent those people there for their own selfish reasons to fight and die in the most horrible ways! And you have nothing but love and admiration for them? I would call you pathetic but in your case it’s more blind stupidity!

So if any Conservatives or Liberals etc from the US are out there reading this and you’re about to comment, seriously, don’t start with you fucking ideology! I’m not debating any of your flawed ideologies ok? Fuck the troops for the time being and that video, concentrate on why they are there and who’s sent them! If you haven’t already figured out from the writing above.

Safe And Sound

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on January 12, 2011

Today, as I waited for a taxi, outside my own house on my own drive, I felt very open to attack and vulnerable. Now, if you don’t know I suffer with Obsessive Compulsive thinking/mindset and Anxiety problems anyway, so  I am not that social and am somewhat paranoid. However, this doesn’t mean my sense of fear is misplaced while out doors.

Given that where I live is one of the worse places for crime outside of London and having been threatened before with physical attack and hear about attacks and victimisation on a regular basis, I think my over all fear is justified, even if my aforementioned afflictions knock things over the top.

Yes, it is fear, and, frustration with the whole situation. It’s so sad when a misplaced glance at someone can cause an argument, that results in a fight and later a feud where you can get seriously harmed or even killed! Or, if you’re unlucky, all of them at once in the space of five minutes! Hey!… It’s been known to happen!

What the hell do you do when you’re in that situation? Look at it this way, if you walk away (assuming you’re given that choice) then you become a victim, you’re a prime target from then on for them to carry on giving you and your family grief and victimising you in other ways. Not only that, you also become a shining victim for others to give shit to. You lose!

On the other hand if you stand there and have a war of words with these people, even if you use logic to show their problem with you is utterly rubbish and based on nothing but their own low self-esteem, child like attitude and insistence on proving themselves, you run the risk of a fight. In which you could get hurt, arrested by the police for assault (been known to happen), run the risk of further confrontation and even death.

Look what happened to this man; Survived Two tours of Iraq but not a night in Oldham! If I’m not mistaken it also happened to an Army officer who served in Afghanistan Was Killed,  only this time in the North East, however he didn’t survive his encounter. Chris Chackfield was nearly as tall as me and I have no doubt his attacker picked him because of his size. For your information Chackfield’s killer only got Five Years for killing him.

With repercussions like that no wonder people are quick to fly off the handle, rob, fight, assault and rape. So you see, there’s no deterrent to not act like a violent piece of human filth, and anyone who feels wronged by me in some way is free to kick the shit out of me untill I’m dead and then be out in two years. And I just know if I was to do the same to the Human filth on the streets where I live, the real scum who should be locked up for life for what they’ve done, I’d most likely go down for life!

As I said, when you’re in the situation in paragraph four above, what do you do? Obviously the Police can’t be there 24/7, in fact, in some cases Police get their late. By then the attack’s happened, you could be dead and family hurt, they’ll document it then fuck off. The courts’ sentences are not a deterrent to them, so what the hell do you do?

Learn self-defence or a martial art? I’m planing to do that and know a place where I can do it. However, that still wont be a deterrent to other idiots who possess a little fighting skill, like Chris Chackfield’s killer. It also wont protect you from a gang of people either, especially ones with weapons, or just one person with a gun.

I just feel it’s a lose-lose situation, unless you enjoy prison or being victimised then you’re fucked! The only way I would feel safe and secure outside is if I could carry a gun and wear a bullet/knife proof vest. I’m serious, I don’t feel secure, I know my problems compound that feeling but it’s the way I feel and given the area I live and the filth I know inhabits it, it’s the only way. 

I could keep my mouth shut and head down, bite my lip and let the scum run the area, but if the truth be known I’m getting sick of it! I can be very confrontational and honest, I’ve been avoiding being that way for some time, I don’t like the  stupidity, bullies and pure human filth who think they demand respect. I’m supposed to back off and be subject to their bullshit, just because they don’t care if they don’t go to prison or not? The Community should stand together to fight these people, but they’re so divided and at each others throats where I live that it’s almost impossible. They’re also far too lazy to do anything about it and don’t think it’s that bad anyway.

I feel I’m going to get in to trouble at some point, especially when I start going out again, if I bottle this stuff up and start fretting and getting all anxious over this then I’m going to be back at square one again. Moving out of the area is an option though there’s no guarantee where I live will be that different. Given the service by our current landlords, their other estates wont be much different.

So, does anyone have a… 

                                                                               44.  Magnum Handgun spare?

                                                                               Or maybe a Glock 40 instead?

I think I like the Glock better, more shots and easier reload for the more impatient Human filth and Scally slayer!

Ulcerative Colitis Diary: I Got The Green Light For New Medication!

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on January 12, 2011

I went to see my Ulcerative Colitis Professor today and I discussed the prospect of trying steroids for my UC. I was happy he agreed with me that I do need to try something different after over five years of waiting for the UC to settle by itself with UC maintainance meds. 

The medication will be Prednisone. It is a type of medication that will reduce the immune system’s response and thus reduce the inflammation in my large colon. I’ve had this before, but in conjunction with another medication for another problem of mine. It worked then and I see no reason it wont work now.

I will start off on the lowest dose first, for four to eight weekes, then gradually come off them and see how things go.

Of course, there is draw backs to this type of medication. The Side Effects are not very nice! However, I’m not on that higher a dose nor will I am be on them constantly to develop such an extreme reaction. But I will have some side effects nonetheless. Some people would view these side effects as not worth the effort. But let me tell you, if you’ve been constantly ill going from mild to moderate variations of the same disease for such a long time with not much change then you’d risk it!

Obviously I’m well aware of the adverse reactions as I’m not stupid enough to walk in to this having not done any research. The Prof today thought he was telling me something when he explained about the Prednisone, thanks Prof! You gonna teach me to suck eggs next?

I think the Prednisone will affect me negatively in a mental and physical way, however, if a month or two of low mood, acne and mood swings is the price to pay for a potential year of no UC, then so be it. If I have to keep taking them to keep the UC at bay then I will have to try something else because on and off use of Prednisone will mess up my body. What that will be? Um, well… we’ll have to see!

Anyway, I should be starting them next week, I have to get ym Flu vac first, and then wait for the Prof’s recommendation to get to my GP. Once I start taking them I’ll document how it goes.

On another note, I had a strange Taxi driver take me to the hospital. He was joking about some of the none white people he get’s in his cab. Most do this, but most do it in obvious jest. Funny thing is I couldn’t tell if he was being serious or not as everything he said seemed to be in  jest as to cover his overt ignorant statements.

Apparently:

The Chinese are “Dummies” and don’t “Know what they’re doing here.” I assume he means in the country.

Jews are “Lazy.” He says this because they hire a taxi to go a half a mile.

Pakistanis are “The worse for it”, regarding disputing fares.

And women can’t drive.

When he said the final comment about women drivers I said, with a smirk, you’ve insulted pretty much everyone, and before I could finish he said: “What I’m saying is I only like White English People hahaha”. The way he said it was like a purposely overt ignorant remark but said in jest so he could always retract it if we took offence to it.

I laughed along with him to see how far he’d go, offering up questions like “What about the Nigerians?” Before I got to the BNP question the convo changed and we were at the hospital. I’m pretty sure he was being an ignorant idiot, this seems to be a retro way of being ‘racist’ without being bollocked for it because you can say you were only joking if someone get’s offended by it.

How very strange, racism masked by humour!

A Propaganda Piece: Understanding It

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on January 10, 2011

Below is a post by a former U.S. Politician by the name of Robert Hall. Although I agree with some of his points I find a lot of his post to be typical of a U.S. Republican with rhetoric that is blatantly written to anger you and thus get you on side, the Republican side.

Like most Republicans/Libertarians they’re so adamant their ideology is right, and the best, but don’t seem to notice the huge flaws in it. And when ever someone points these out you’re a: “Damn Socialists/Libtard/Commie/Pinko” or some other kind of leftist.  

I’m going to handle each of his points with a reply in green under each paragraph and show you how this type of post works.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I’ll be 63 soon. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce, and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I’ve worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven’t called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no retirement in sight, and I’m tired. Very tired.
He’s worked hard all his life and looked for job, even when the job market was bad. He also had health challenges, basically saying he didn’t need Government medical help. He’s just like you, he’s getting on common ground and creating an affinity with you. He’s also setting you up for the next paragraph.

I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth around” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy or stupid to earn it. They’re taking your hard-earned money and giving it to lazy people. Everyone on benefits/welfare is lazy. He’s setting you up to accept his own agenda which is keeping more of his pay and giving nothing to help those who legitimately need a helping hand in society. He assumes Voluntary charity will cover those in need. It only goes so far. He doesn’t take in to account the system the U.S. has is what’s contributing to poverty and joblessness i.e the “Lazy or Stupid”.

I’m tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to “keep people in their homes.” Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I’m willing to help. But if they bought McMansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the leftwing Congresscritters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community He Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them—with their own money. He try’s to show he’s willing to pay for legitimate cases of illness and home repossession, then say’s it’s their own fault and the fault of a Government made programme/business that helped them lose their homes. Fact is a lot of the people are the victims of this system, as were millions of others. Further more, Fannie and Freddie Mac wasn’t the only cause of the Financial crisis which caused people to lose their homes. The causes was the unregulated financial system his party brought a Bill in for, passed and which Bill Clinton signed in to action.

 I’m tired of being told how bad America is by leftwing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have the religious freedom and women’s rights of Saudi Arabia, the economy of Zimbabwe, the freedom of the press of China, the crime and violence of Mexico, the tolerance for Gay people of Iran, and the freedom of speech of Venezuela. Won’t multiculturalism be beautiful? He’s illicit a Patriotic reaction and trying to scare you by saying some people hate the U.S. and the U.S. will end up like the aforementioned places if you think America is a bad place and support the people mentioned. Fact is the U.S. doesn’t have much freedom of the press as media is owned and influenced by rival ideological and business groups, and these groups keep anything they don’t want said under wraps or don’t report it properly. The Republican Party doesn’t have much tolerance for Gay people. The U.S. has free speech but people fear to voice their opinion in public for fear of an argument or even violence.

I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family “honor;” of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers;” of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery;” of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Shari’a law tells them to. He’s having a go at Political Correctness. However, he’s cherry picked the worse aspects of culture within Islam. This is a blanket generalisation over all Muslims, which is just wrong as not all Muslims are like or do the above. Political Correctness does need to be questioned and challenged, but not with blanket generalisations.

I believe “a man should be judged by the content of his character, not by the color of his skin.” I’m tired of being told that “race doesn’t matter” in the post-racial world of President Obama, when it’s all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of US Senators from Illinois. I think it’s very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the emancipation proclamation. I just wish the black president was Condi Rice, or someone who believes more in freedom and the individual and less in an all-knowing government. He’s saying race is still an issue in the U.S., even though there’s a black President. I’m not sure anyone fully disputes this fact. Positive discrimination goes against his Libertarian view of “best man for the job”, which shows his reaction. The problems with the black minority and not being allowed to talk about them, gives him more chance to box Political Correctness and advance his ideal of Family as a corner stone in society. It’s bashing of Obama and the Democrats while subtly offering his own black candidate for the job, who he thinks it more qualified.

I’m tired of a news media that thinks Bush’s fundraising and inaugural expenses were obscene, but that think Obama’s, at triple the cost, were wonderful. That thinks Bush exercising daily was a waste of presidential time, but Obama exercising is a great example for the public to control weight and stress, that picked over every line of Bush’s military records, but never demanded that Kerry release his, that slammed Palin with two years as governor for being too inexperienced for VP, but touted Obama with three years as senator as potentially the best president ever. He thinks the media is against the Republican right and biased in the favour of Obama and Left-wing views. The fact is nearly all media orgs in the U.S. are biased one way or the other. The paragraph belies his mind-set that the right is a victimised group in the U.S.

Wonder why people are dropping their subscriptions or switching to Fox News? Get a clue. I didn’t vote for Bush in 2000, but the media and Kerry drove me to his camp in 2004. Again, he thinks most media organisations are against the Republican right and that Fox news is the only Media org that delivers the least biased news. He’s setting up Fox News a channel for you to visit and watch, so you’ll think like him.

I’m tired of being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America, while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance. What Saudi-Arabia is doing has nothing to do with multiculturalism and everything to do with Successive U.S. governments and U.S. energy conglomerates who allow it to happen because they  don’t want to upset their cash and Oil flow.  

I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our jobs. We also own a three-bedroom condo where our daughter and granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore’s, and if you’re greener than Gore, you’re green enough. Another ideological staple of Republicanism, anything that requires taxes that isn’t spent on the Defence, Police, Fire dept or Roads is not wanted. Of course Climate change is happening but it can’t be fully shown if Human’s are the complete cause, but Republicans don’t care if it can be proved, they’re not being taxed for it.

I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off? I don’t think Gay people choose to be Gay, but I damn sure think druggies chose to take drugs. And I’m tired of harassment from cool people treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried marijuana. Another extension of the Libertarian idea that you stand on your own two feet and accept responsibility for your own actions in life.

I’m tired of illegal aliens being called “undocumented workers,” especially the ones who aren’t working, but are living on welfare or crime. What’s next? Calling drug dealers, “Undocumented Pharmacists”? And, no, I’m not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic and it’s been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion. I’m willing to fast track for citizenship any Hispanic person who can speak English, doesn’t have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military. Those are the citizens we need. Again, he doesn’t want to pay for benefits for people who are lazy. Doesn’t like crime either, then again who doesn’t? This comment fits in normally with many right and left-wing ideas. 

I’m tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years—and still are? Not even close. So here’s the deal. I’ll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we’ll compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear. Appealing to Patriotism and makes the assumption that anyone who doesn’t join the army or support the war is some how un-American. Trys to legitimise western War crimes while painting in the enemy as worse. Al Qaeda was never in Iraq, those rooms were used by the Iraqi Republican guard to torture. 

I’m tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. Read the papers—bums are bi-partisan. And I’m tired of people telling me we need bi-partisanship. I live in Illinois, where the “Illinois Combine” of Democrats and Republicans has worked together harmoniously to loot the public for years. And I notice that the tax cheats in Obama’s cabinet are bi-partisan as well. We shouldn’t Dilute Republican/Conservative ideology, because we’ll end with a Government like Illinois Combine. Also, note how he doesn’t implicate the wider Republican Party and doesn’t mention the Corporate Tax cheats. Fact of the matter is the whole system is rotten and corrupt and people like Robert Hill perpetuate it.

I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor. Trying to show he’s on your level, the average joe’s level, and appealing to the Tea Party Movement.

Speaking of poor, I’m tired of hearing people with air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn’t have that in 1970, but we didn’t know we were “poor.” The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing. He thinks the “Socialists” in Government are using these words as an excuse to take more money off him. I’m sure they do use it like that some times.

I’m real tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination, or big-whatever for their problems. Just more Libertarian/Rep/Con ideology saying they don’t want their money going on the lazy. He doesn’t accept the fact that because of all the above mentioned things that some people really can’t get ahead in life. Also nothing about the U.S paying trillions to bail out the U.S. financial sector. By the rules of Capitalism and Libertarianism they should’ve been allowed to fail, and those responsible held to account.

Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 63. Because, mostly, I’m not going to get to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter. He’s appealing to you to pick up the flag and carry on where he left off, for you to change things using his ideology. Again, this ideology in nature is ruthless and is actively the cause of many of  the problems in the country.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I don’t disagree with everything Mr. Hill is saying here, I was just taking this argument apart to show the obvious bias and the way he invites you to think the way he does. And to show how he misleads the reader in some areas.  When I write blogs you know they’re my opinion and I don’t try to get anyone to take on any of my opinions. I just want you to question everything and everyone. I want people to think for themselves and not take on set of ideas and opinions that aren’t their own, that defeats the object of thinking for yourself and learning about other opinions and ideas and then scrutinising them.

If more people were to think for themselves and question a Political party’s ideas and pieces like the above, before picking them up, taking them as their own and holding them up to world as what’s the best, then we wouldn’t be so deep in the Political mess we’re currently in with sky-high national debts because of public spending and financial bailouts of banks and business that were doing dodgy business dealings that would later cripple us.

QUESTION EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE!
