Just yesterday I posted the paragraph below warning about the big three offenders, Google Facebook and twitter. This morning a new article was posted by The Guardian that dives into the heart of it. please see the technology page for more....

In spite of my neglect, the TCP website
keeps ticking along. Over 500,000 hits per month. Not bad. I
couldn't keep myself out of circulation forever so will try this
out. I tried for twitter but they hated my security programs.
As I wouldn't let them inside my computer they decided to exclude
me from their site. More to say about that later maybe but suffice
for now, Twitter isn't the sweet thing they would have you believe.
They are just as shitty as facebook and Google, even worse in
some ways but that will go onto the technology page.
I wish to announce that according to our
web stats, the USA is now the largest reading audiance of TCP.
Good onyer Yanks!
Anyway! Where to start! People around the
world are finally finally!!
starting to wake up! Only 30 years
past the point when I gave up on the process. Australia and the
US have been on a paralell course for some time now. Ever since
American Republican party operatives got that shit eating rodent,
John Howard put in as Prime Minister back in 96. There are a
lot of people that have leanrt but I know a lot of his supporters
will double down to save embarrassment, or admission of how they
But anyway, here we are. Election is upon
us and John Howards hachet man, the meanest man in Australian
politics looks likely to get beat by an independant woman....
sound familiar? The Australian Labor party isn't well liked,
or rather the party leader isn't well liked but for you yanks,
the leader of the party that wins or can make a deal for the
most seats in Parliment becomes the Prime Minister.
party leaders are old hacks, widely dispised by modern, read
young and reformed older voters. The very misnamed Australian
Liberal party, about as liberal as Hitler, has dug itself deep
in a pit of climate change denial and passed every form of domestic
spying imaginable. BUT, they passed the spy stuff because Labor
sold out and went with it too. They have worked together to lower
wages for the low and middle class and lower taxes for the rich.
All of these things (and more) are anti to the modern voter blocks.
This is being seen all over the world. The days of destructive
foriegn wars, big coal and 1percenters is coming to an end. I
am really proud of you yanks. Even after the dissappointment
of Obama and the machinations of the democrat party that pushed
Hillary in in favour of candidates that were more popular and
would have won against Trump, voters still have heart and wow,
what winners you guys have elected in the midterms. I am so impressed.
History will long remember that turning point... and so will
My prediction? Australian election is 18
May. I predict that labor will win against liberal but in seats
where there is a reasonable independent, the indy will win.
In US politics? Obama was right to
caution democrat party nominies to not shot each other down in
the primaries. Obama knows his politics... too bad he didn't
know how to govern.
The house will move to impeach Trump but
the republicans in the senate will block it and doom their party
to near extinction in 2020. Res ipsa loquetour
