TERRIBLE INJUSTICE AMID SHOCKING CORRUPTION – SCHAPELLE CORBY SACRIFICED – WHY????

Here’s an example Rodney, of how upset I get over the needless suffering of others, when facts were known & were deliberately ignored. Schapelle Corby had Mick Keelty testify that there was “no evidence” of corruption within Customs or Baggage Handling at Sydney Airport. His testimony was given 2 weeks prior to raids & arrests at Sydney Airport for that very reason. Mick Keelty knew of the long running operations that were investigating the very corruption he denied…..to the terrible detriment of Corby. Why has he not been charged with perjury? Why has he not been called to answer why he sacrificed Corby? Was it for operational considerations at the time? Who gave him the authority to act this way? Why have successive governments avoided taking Indonesia on over this matter? Is it for fear of embarrassing indonesia?
I don’t know BUT i have read several books on the Corby case & the Corby website has thousands of pages of FOI documents which leave me with NO DOUBT that she was set-up & must be freed! I’m not an expert on her case but I’m prepared to back her over politicians & public servants whose conflicts of interest in this case remain undeclared.

MORE ENFORCEMENT WILL ACHIEVE NOTHING!

  • Jerome Gelb It’s impossible to deploy forces to guard schools because of the tiny number of massacres & the huge number of schools! The cost alone would bankrupt the nation! There are nearly 133,000 K-12 schools in the U.S. & there is no reliable predictor of target. Each school (what about Colleges & Universities & Technical Colleges etc, etc) would require at least a team or two of 2-3 officers just to cover Marked exits & entrances, let alone the entire perimeter fencing. Before you know it, you would need another force the same size as the US ARMED SERVICES!!!! There are only 500,000 Police in the US, so they can’t be used either. The whole idea is wrong headed anyway! Massacres are perpetrated by misfits, loners, mentally ill, adolescents & young adults, whose eccentricity is already well known in their communities BUT WHOSE ISOLATION & SOCIAL REJECTION, make them all but invisible!!! They have very few if any friends & those they do have are just like them! They will always slip under the radar, just like they slip beneath the radar of their doctors & even parents. Stop them buying guns????? THEY DON’T BUY GUNS!! They use their parents’ guns in almost every case!!! They WON’t be getting background checks either for the same reason. All the gnashing of teeth & the wringing of hands is too little too late!! America had its chance 100yrs ago to carefully monitor gun acquisition, to mandate controls & training requirements that might have prevented the accumulation of the huge arsenal of personal firearms currently in nearly every home in the U.S. & to avoid the wide disparities between rich & poor & between races that might have led to a fairer system, a Justice System with a level playing field & a nation with far fewer angry, disenfranchised, frustrated, vengeful, marginalised & alienated people who hate the world & themselves & lack the decency, compassion & empathy required to stop us all killing ourselves & those around us who piss us off!!!!

CALLS FOR ARMED GUARDS IN SCHOOLS ARE WRONG-HEADED.

Jerome Gelb That’s where the authors have gone horribly wrong!!!! Gun deaths are NOT all about people with serious problems! Massacres might be but they account for a TINY proportion of the annual slaughter of 34,000 Americans who die from handguns each year! Most murders are perpetrated by whom?!!!!!? BY PEOPLE YOU KNOW…….ESPECIALLY IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBERS!! NOT THE MENTALLY ILL OR THE DERANGED! And why are people murdered? THE SAME REASONS THAT THEY ALWAYS HAVE BEEN!!!! LUST, GREED, JEALOUSY, ENVY, ANGER ETC. NOTHING ABOUT THE MOTIVES FOR MURDER HAS CHANGED IN MILLENNIA!!! THE HUMAN ANIMAL IS STILL ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS THREATS TO MEMBERS OF ITS OWN SPECIES THAN ANY LIVE THREAT OUR SPECIES IS LIKELY TO CONFRONT!!

MEDICARE LOCALS & OTHER GOVERNMENT LIES

Posted in MEDICOPOLITICS with tags , , on December 5, 2012 by drjgelb
How terrible to realise that government blackmail & extortion have succeeded in cowering the medical profession in Australia as it has in the UK & elsewhere. I don’t misuse the language, for what are threats of prosecution, ruination & suspension for pursuing independence in one’s career, other than standover, extortion & gangsterism in the fabricated guise of ensuring the public good. 
 
The profession united would never be so defeated & I for one am sickened by the traitors in our midst who seem so easily bought by the prospect of wielding power within the profession & advancing their circumstances. These turncoats betray public trust that doctors will stand up for their health & so betray the very philosophical underpinnings of doctoring. 
 
The obvious answer is the one constantly rejected by the profession’s cowardly & self-serving leadership…….organise the 80,000 strong medical workforce & refuse to play ball with government. Boycott the devaluation of our vocation & the attempts to force us into a weak & easily manipulated flock of sheep, kept in check by a few dogs snapping at our heels! I’ve witnessed 31yrs of corrosive disunity hand the heart of our profession to politicians, panels, boards & corporations, all for absolutely no public good. The same waiting times in ED, the same beds in corridors, fatal delays of ambulances, restricted availability of medications…..the list is long! The time for meaningless debate is long over, the future of our central role as deliverers of science based high quality health care to our fellow citizens is under the greatest threat in Australia’s history. Failure to prevent government from continuing to covertly implement their plan to introduce cheaper substitutes to perform our functions & to reduce the remaining doctors to a vestigial tail, able to be docked at the government’s pleasure, will destroy the most profound components, the so called “deep structure” of Medicine & risks forever diminishing its power to advance, to amaze, to inspire & ultimately, to heal. Please awaken colleagues & cease debating the process of shuffling the Titanic’s deckchairs! It’s truly time to man the lifeboats & abandon ship!!
