Alana Johnson, Leslie Cannold right to sledge joy at Osama's death

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Tuesday, May 3, 2011,
If there's one thing we can count on, fellow travellers, it's the revolting coarseness of the conservative commentariat. Their latest display of utter barbarism was jubilation at the clearly illegal, cold-blooded, extra-judicial murder of Osama bin Laden. This appalling act by the ultimate rogue state, performed deep in the territory of another sovereign nation and without its knowledge or permission defiles us all. Yet Rupert's rotties are calling it a "triumph for freedom".

Can you believe t...

Regarding my "unmasking" as a satire

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Tuesday, January 18, 2011,
Well, well, well. Isn't the blogosphere interesting?

As an indirect consequence of this blog's mention in Rupert's mean little rag, rumours have started to circulate that I am a satirical construction created by the loathsome conservative blowhard Matt Hayden. Sadly, these claims have come from the left. I can't deny it, that hurts.

I am not a satire. I am as real as anyone walking the planet (and certainly more authentic than most!).

Those pushing the claim cite the inclusion of the words "come...

Impending Perth heat wave another sure sign of global warming!

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Friday, December 31, 2010,
Fellow travellers, here in Perth, Western Australia we have already had some unseasonally hot days. And there are more to come. Next week several days of 40-degree heat are predicted.

Now, how can you still have your doubts about anthropogenic global warming when such a strong trend is in evidence?

But of course the redneck climate change denialists have their doubts, don't they! Because Heathrow has been shut down for days due to the cold, and there have been similar conditions in America, t...

Unnatural disaster hits Perth!

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Tuesday, March 23, 2010,
Fellow travellers, when is this nation (and the world for that matter!) going to realize that climate change is real, that man is causing it and that the science is in!

Take this terrifying storm in Perth. It was the worst that city has had so far this whole millennium! How could you possibly deny the link?

Of course, appalling peenie-waving Premier Colin Barnett has deemed that it was a "natural" disaster. Talk about blaming the victim! It was as unnatural as a disaster can be, since it simpl...

Ninja monkeys for Gaia!

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Thursday, December 17, 2009,
Fellow travellers, as you all know I abhor violence. However, here is one event in which it is justified: A troupe of monkeys trained in martial arts have used these very techniques on their trainer!

What they were protesting is not clear. But I suspect that with the Copenhagen conference in full swing, they were raising awareness of climate change; telling those watching that Gaia would revolt spectacularly if we did not show respect to Her and make a global deal to end all greenhouse gas em...

Media ignores seagull signal

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Thursday, October 22, 2009,
Fellow travellers, as we all know, Gaia is constantly telling humanity how angry She is with us. Yet, so often we just don't get it. (Well, we get it, of course. But the rest of humanity - that is, The Great Unloofahed - sure don't!)

And here's a perfect example: During a news broadcast in Melbourne, the camera that captures the city skyline projected behind the newsreader was attacked by a seagull. Because of its proximity to the lens, it looked like a giant, monstrous creature.

Gaia's intenti...
