Well FFS Bomber tell us!!
Why do we keep hearing this s***?? If the truth hasn't come out, why don't you let it out?
This is my 2nd crack at this, JM - why does the joint drop out so often around 7 PM'ish, up here in the Monash Uni precinct? By fork, it's frustrating.
De Bomber is exhibiting what I've long said would come to various of the 'players' in this crap fest. I've always said some would rail against 'injustice', some would struggle with 'guilt', some would wake up late, some would be aggrieved by their own treatment (e.g. Wallis being one who was thrown under the expediency bus, which was referenced by De Bomber), some would worry about the risks to their future health, and others would be monstered by combinations of varying anxieties.
De Bomber has clearly experienced a few 'awakenings'. As I noted 1st up today, he is now mentioning the folly of hiring Dank, mentioning the relevance of WADA, and pointing straight at Evans. Throw in his, what is for De Bomber, clear point at Andy D, and you have the makings of a narrative.
I also value his obsession borne of whatever combination of the above it is that's got him obsessed.
What we need him to do is keep on the path e.g. maybe partner up with Wallis.
The AwFuL is yet another outfit driven by management speak bulls***, and the slope is steepening.
While AwFuL footy is far from life and death, the modus operandi they employ is straight from the same manifestos drawn up by those who do deal in life and death.
I'm midway through reading this extraordinary book - https://www.amazon.com/CIA-Organized-Cr ... 0997287012
The previous book I read was this - https://www.amazon.com/Whiteout-Drugs-P ... t+cockburn
Neither Douglas Valentine, who wrote the 1st, nor Jeffrey St.Clair & Alexander Cockburn, who wrote the 2nd, in any way shape or form fit the 'conspiracy theorists' model.
Valentine's book is truly extraordinary. He gained access to the highest and deepest echelons of the CIA, by running a con where he played on the various psychological motivations of those who were, and still are, involved in running operations like the "Phoenix Program".
All the pissant puppets, like those who run the AwFuL, fancy themselves as great managers. In fact, what they are is self-deluding adherents to the same sort of vaccuous tripe that manifests itself as a righteous superiority in the field of 'empire management', and a complete and utter disrespect and disregard for people who actually make societies and communities function, be they in Syria or huddled around the St.K.F.C.
It's not the criticality, it's the people who think it's critical, to them. It's a raging sense of self importance.
And, I hate them all.
The late Alexander Cockburn used to ask all budding journalists, who wanted to learn from him, one question up front:
"Is your hate pure?".
Mine is. But, I am patient.
Mr Baker has just checked in, so I best check in before the stir fry.
