The following article By Charles Miranda is published todays in the Daily Telegraph

THE war in Iraq was based on a lie pushed by politicians manipulating the grief of the 9/11 terror attacks and a more discerning public had punished outgoing-Prime Minister John Howard.

That's the view of screen legend Dustin Hoffman who said yesterday he was still incensed when he read about the war and how it was justified to a trusting audience by governments and spin doctors.
And he was also critical of screenwriters and film studios for romanticising war and numbing the public to its consequences.
In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Hoffman conceded he knew little about Australian politics and even less about Mr Howard but understood he had been the last member of George Bush and the Iraq War's "coalition of the willing" still standing.
"He suffered the same fate as the dude in Great Britain," Hoffman said of Mr Howard's defeat in the polls, likening him to an unpopular Tony Blair, who stood down as PM earlier this year.
The 70-year-old Oscar-winner said he was no political activist like George Clooney but in the past two years he had had more time to become more broadly aware of world events.
He recalled speaking about the war in Iraq at a film festival, where he declared he was not anti-American but anti the current US administration's point of view.
"I said I would speak because I had a strong feeling," he said.
"I am an American, I was born and raised as an American and I've been on the planet for 70 years but I've never had such strong feelings about my country as I do now - ever - even in Vietnam, where that war was a fraud.
"We were lied to in Vietnam, we know that now and the weapons of mass destruction (in Iraq), they didn't exist, we were lied to, it was a lie."
He said with technology, war had become more perversely an abstraction.
"Please fellow actors, please fellow directors, please studios, please writers, please people who make video games, stop because you are romanticising violence, you are making it more and more acceptable," he said.
"They won't. But, yes, I have strong views."
Hoffman is in London promoting his children's movie Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium.


From this Ducks point of view I see this call by Dustin as further evidence and vindication to the progressive invasion of our senses by multiple levels of abusive indoctrination which must now bring to conscious awareness our horror towards the rise of violence in our homes, schools, pubs, suburbs, communities, businesses, corporations states, nation governments, preemptive war aggressors and ultimately life on earth.

That old Fabian expression about the inevitability of gradualism has taken Earth and all life forms to the brink.


In this state of chaos we will see swirling energy in many forces jockeying and regrouping as life takes on its dance to freedom from the constriction of political physical, and psychological suffocation in the hands of irrational economic predatory growth for growth sake whilst services, quality and sincerity was placed by the quick buck as the corporate take overs "SHARK" up at each other and the bean counters make their numbers look 'smarter' by doing away with another 4000 or 10,000 menial jobs and declare their business to be efficient, amidst the PAST pm's belief that we had full employment as workers scavenged at piece work, hours here, hours there, at 3 and 4 "little jobs" to pay their rent. Yes "Little jobs" like number 2s.
So the nation voted and so too will the world veto this move to open waters as the world changes tack and "GOES ABOUT".


Let the Earth breath. Let the earth breathe. Let the earth breathe.
COME FLOAT AT THE POND take some wise Counsel to help do your work and find the still waters within your soul
That's all Folks
Love and Blessings as always phd

I was asked by a former work colleague to report on a scale of 1 to 10 how I really felt about the Australian Federal election result. Well, for one, he of all people should have known better than to ask me for a numeric answer. So I responded by saying.

How many tens are there in DELIGHTED?

De- lighted because the national electorate rejected the right winged jack booted assault inflicted over the national psyche by the delinquency of imbalanced power, power based in economic rationalistic numbers, numbers of “Acey Ducy”” over living nature, nurture, humanity and earth.
Such deranged dehumanized economic based belief was rising to a point of seriously threatening the entire ecosystem of all life on the planet.
Unfortunately the Wesley Mission Gambling Counselling Service replica which we had studied and she is still part of was/is identical to the major ‘system of the National governance. The smaller cellular models of management replicated from the head “Chirring” right wing, fundamental Christian, delinquency being duplicated in blind faith by the following committees and former structures of management under his throne and kingdom right down the line.

As welfare workers we were disgusted and shocked when the head man mailed us seeking our prayers for George Bush to be elected. Then his support for the war which was totally incomprehensible grand lunacy from one leading a welfare organ “I”- sation.
By his systemic self promoted graduation this deranged man moved up the power chain to State politics where he joined a crew of like mentality. Regardless of political persuasion politicians of recent past generation have in general all been ‘schooled’ in thought control, for some over a period of 33 years.

Here most participants were under the influence and rackets playing the “team” game of political tennis under the faithfully blinded eyes of a federal umpire supposedly supervising play from his grand standing Canberra throne from where he personally refused to be challenged on any decision as his mind and attention was completely absorbed employing “Tail of a dog” tactics all about an American political mind distorting movie where the world is taken to war from a TV studio as a modern day electioneering technique.
All simply too true, see the movie please, if they are still on the shelves. So this fundamental trance grew to encompassed our overall society which osmotically began to act and play the game accordingly, trance fixed as they ignored humanity and went for economic growth.

Fortunately the organ of this “I” sense sation of systemic ill logic consciousness has naturally run aground as it must in parallel with the Liberal party and the former National psychic and the institutional delusion they had created with the symbolic “golden calf” of personal, community, state and federal economic imprisonment by extending the pacifying dummy of credit, disguise in the trance as a fun-der-mental called wealth as against HEALTH.

Here I say fortunately because some of the survivors will recover to sail again, had we not seen the rocks approaching, which could have well occurred if the tide of credit and electoral hand outs continued to rise.
In such a case we may have passed over that electoral rock of the day and been compulsorily “SUCKED IN” and swallowed up by a cavernous whirlpool of suffocating suppression, and toxic denial as was the indicator with the drive for nuclear sales and the “Muckaty Station” waste dump in the hands of Halliburton KBR and their 50 year lease back on the Darwin to Alice springs freight line. See blog

Fortunately in this latest scenario as was modeled many many years ago by Pharaoh soldiers and tax collectors when perusing Moses and his people through the Red sea of consciousness after Moses raised the serpent in the wilderness to remind the people that they may have an everlasting balanced renewable life in their children.
Fortunately Kevin Rudd took the challenge with his new Leader ship led the people across that same ‘see sea rider’ of consciousness whilst Pharaoh’s soldiers were swallowed up defeated and left to lie dormant for 2500 years or more, not quite sure of these dates. The model is quite consistent however. The Liberal party might understand this story given time to recover their breath, men and children overboard and rebuild their Ark for the covenant.

AGRESSIVE, PREDATOR mentality faithfully Lauded (Lorded) over the lambs as they were led to their slaughter.


Those of use who have a mind of our own and use it, were most fortunate to be given the opportunity to “I-land hop” into our own precious life raft before the Mother vessel was swallowed up and shattered in the turbulence of the rising tide. On so many occasions our calls in response to the Clarion’s Global warning and erratic management were not welcome, or received, rather they were diminished in disregard subsequently we were further abused for a lack of discipline and respect to authority, abused, with attempted humiliation, denigrated, dispensed as waste.

Actually as I write I realise just how hurt I was and how disappointed and life threatening the entire scenario became, now, in reflection over the journey hind sight exposes possible reasons of the collapse actually exposing, in the personal sense of my sheer relief, relief to just how traumatised and desensitized by my holding on which had become numbing along with the greater society.
In reflection we see how negatively driven and totally influenced we have been over the past 2000 years as we faithfully were encouraged to hold onto the crucifixion imagine by dreaming and hungering for connection and touch to be gained in a spiritual resurrection, a resurrection of lost self confidence due to the confusion social leadership had deliberately engaged in and manipulated to over rule our natural sense of balance.
Repeatedly we loose our way and allow ourselves to be led astray, hood winked to be slaughtered and wounded by wolves in sheep’s clothing.
Worse still in need of sustenance we actually were denied the right to free speech a fundamental tenant of democracy. The APEC lock out was the final straw and was sent up brilliantly by the Chasers TV comics.
Those dark droning helicopter skies of the APEC lock down for george Bush and co was laughable and in the extreme of democratic abuse where the civilians of a free society were to be so threatened, unwelcome, denied vittles, free pass and then to be silenced and completely restrained FOR OUR safety. Oh Yeah! Symbolically and factually we were locked out of our the body of our own society.

The lesson has been written and recorded for many generations to read and understand. However to our peril we continue to make the carnal mistake of surrendering to our really basic human desires to maintain the seeds of life, populate or perish, comes the Catholic cry. Consequently sincer "the pill" liberated sexuality and us being an organic living species with a natural fertile desire we now shag, drug and binge, shop endlessly and spend our selves stupid, time after time, without the necessary discipline or committment to support families, so women are beginning to take on more deliberate single Mothering responsibilities, now we need to reconsider our values as human beings, parents, partners so that future generation will avoid the pit fall of the past generations after civilization after civilization right back to Adam and Eve’s apple tree where in older times they wrote, as it was in beginning so shall it be in the end.

So a new era of the apple has begun in this water conscious age of Aquarius as we follow the mythical astrological era of Pisces the Fish, interestingly our blog features this time as being when the fish discovers water as the last thing as we do just as it has been in this opportune time of drought when we do take greater interest in water the essential component for a healthy hydrated being, society and earth.

Fortunately as I recorded in yesterdays blog our belief has been nationally vindicated on a grand scale for now and as the sins of the fathers are passed down for many generations Kevin and Therese Rudd with their sophisticated Asian Taoist cultural understanding of humanity know that we might begin by opening the minds of the nation’s children, by providing computer access to a boarder band of cultures at their school desk and also take immediate care for those older children who had previously “fallen through the cracks” of that leaking ship before it slammed into the rocky shore.

Caring for unemployed was Therese’ intuitive created private business foundation and personal success which she brings to the national marriage of our people with new leadership and expanding harmonious international relationships.
Those disenfranchised wounded children of humanity seeking refuge and time out, those people who John Howard and the poker machine robbing corporate identities of face less businesses and tax collectors have repeatedly refused to acknowledge by insisting they should work harder and longer and make more bricks without straw are the first people the Prime Minister is embracing to bring them back into the loving fold and care of the nations alms.

So how happy am I in a scale of 10.
Well 1 is a beginning and 0 is the end so I would say 1 because we have just got so much loving to do and as I awoke this morning the word “I am longing for your touch “ were singing in my mind.
Blessings to all, I trust these view encourage you to continue doing the wonderful work you do, in writing this I certainly recognise the discretion and restraint those of you have shown over the years to remain on board that vessel amidst the filth and stench of the toxic disillusioned, consciously struggling victimized strata of management.
I was too impatient, not so wise, humble or sufficiently tolerant. I saw them as being party of the obstructive self interested merchants in my Fathers House and I really do feel justified and ok about tipping a few tables over and routing some of those money changers and striking the rest, we had to start somewhere, they had gone too far and in the blindness of their trance they were attacking their own, as do distempered and rabies effected dogs.

Maybe one day when Kevin, Therese and Senator X need a hand to clean out the pokies and support the gamblers who have fallen victim to their destructive influential powers you and I could be of some assistance, as with our experience we really do know what needs doing and have the courage to implement the the remedy.

For me it’s all about love, even tough love sometimes, but nothing more than love through compassion and understanding, of course we might have to engage a few Duck Mobiles and other tricks to help us generate enough safety for them to let us into the waters of their soul.
However friends we do know what ever we did was really good for some people, for those who were not too badly wounded or destroyed by social neglect, abandonment and misunderstanding and thrown onto the streets to rot and scavenge whilst man flies to the moon or build more casinos whilst our hospitals prisons over flow .

All so wonderfully exhibited by the Choir of Hard Knocks.

When we get knocked around one becomes more sensitive and humbled and that choir touches everyone’s heart, yes we are touched by the emotional recognition of our own pain.
One of my greatest teachers Sathya Sai Baba told me that to reveal the full luster a diamond must be cut on many faces so there is hope for John Howard, George Bush one day and me too I pray.
Have a wonder filled life there is no end and according to His Holiness the Dalai Lama the trick is to stay happy, laugh often and laugh loud and be "juiced up" on your own endorphins.
That's all Folks back on the Pond for this Duck
Love and Blessings to all phd

Tao is simply the way and order of the Universe.

PRIME MINISTER KEVIN 07, 07, 07,07,07,07,07, 707's air crafted specialist.

Lao Tsu taught that the wisest approach was a way of ‘non-action’ ("Wuwei"or "wu wei") – not inaction but rather a harmonisation of one’s personal will with the natural harmony and justice of Nature.

‘The World is ruled by letting things take their natural course. It cannot be ruled by going against nature or arrogance.’ (Tao Te Ching; Verse 48).
It also means that the individual should do things natural to tao and appropriate to do in his circumstances, thus serving as an instrument of the Law rather than doing the things as individuals.

That is why no one should take any credit for things done.
Nature is stabilized by order, and humans along with all other natural phenomena exist within nature.
Attempting to force one's own path is arrogant, futile and self-destructive.

It should be noted that in Taoism the complemental part of "non-action" ("Wu wei") is "non-left-undone" ("Wu bu wei"). Taoism should be viewed as advocating the harmonization of "passivity" and "activity/creativity" instead of just being passive. In other words through stillness and receptivity natural intuition guides us in knowing when to act and when not to act.

Welcome to new open waters of Tao politics as we cleanse the National psyche of the toxic pollution retained from the past 12 years or more of delinquent neglect, drought, pestilence and erosion in the psychic winds of Australia's political history which has run amok during an irrational period and crazy relaxation of international credit extension lost in disguise within a contrived resources boom as China opens once more its doors to consume all resources available internationally.
Yes, there has been a boom and for ever boom there is a bust. The right mind of liberal politics sure knows what that feels like as their ship has been run aground by a "psychically blind" captain to now become a scuttled abandoned relic, in need of a complete re built to then be re floated in opposition.
All will balance again, in time, that is when the barnacles of arrogance's, bad habits, pirates and egotistical gangsters are removed from its crew.
Fortunately we have returned to sustainable balanced mentality out of the threatening storms and into the hands of balanced grace, learned through old wise counsel from ancient social wisdom to now join the world in genteel love and sustainable unity with the vitality, brilliance, fearless creativity and enthusiasm of a modern expressive youth, along with the support of national unity.

It is really great to be Back on the Pond now after a necessary sabbatical in dedicated prayerful silence whilst nature took its course and rebalanced Australian consciousness from the irrational single minded perception and illusion for national health force fed through economic success by the former self appointed lame bodied and lame minded dictator and now demised, admonished and destroyed leader of the national parliament right wing.
Our symbolic Duck is a WONDER FILLED reference for sustainability and balance of all life, the Duck's survival over time is self evident of the essential need for two wings of consciousness for safe and sustained survival.
So, if one becomes lame in wing, foot or ear it is very easy to get out of step, not hear or misunderstand the voice of the flock and soon the lame fall in easy prey, some even get "out foxed".
Within this mythic symbolism there is great value to be had for our national psyche and natural cultural inheritance in the long term so future generations may avoid revisiting the pain, discomfort and gloom from past methods which have failed dismally to become legends in history's inquisition. We shall not be allowed to forget and the records will hold as evidence to such dangerous precedent at the law of natural balance.
In time nature will always survive, because It Is The Law of Nature.


By overseeing these issues any Pondering Ducks could see critical issues repeatedly denied and dismissed so they just had to go:

1. Refused to accept the findings of the stolen generation and the invasion of Australia, there was no sign of remorse or focused intent for reconciliation.
2. Refused to accept and ignored the world’s recognition of Global overheating or to enter into the Kyoto agreement action for climate change..
3. Sent our troops to Iraq against the peoples wish.
4. Attacked the individuals rights in the work place .
5. Gunns paper Mill in Tasmania also showed us how big corporate business and corrupt politics can influence a nation.
6. He seriously threatened or at least attempted to pollute the consciousness and National psyche with fear and terror. Fear and terror. Fear and terror from behind a distorted screen of USA Christianity.

There were numerous other issues such as the disgusting business practices and attempts to cover up the Australian Wheat board scandal with the board now fallen prey to the greater powers of "corporate gunsters" whilst drought ridden Australian wheat growers and primary producers continued to be misled and powdered further into the stubble and dust of their unsustainable, chemical driven agricultural practices.
The Telstra give away and with super extra ordinary hand shake payments to "Doctor Ziggy Zaggy" who the was commissioned to write a another bulk payment for himself in favour of replacing coal mining with nuclear reactors and the waste dump in the Northern Territory whilst Mal Brough got lopped for interfering with sacred sites and aboriginal matters that this Duck does not even fly over.

Our new national leader Kevin Rudd is a wiser, diplomatic, naturally balanced man who has reignited consciousness of the left and right hemispheres of the brain and also in the overall national psyche in no uncertain terms to admonish and annihilated the factious and disassociated rationalists who egotistically and arrogantly held a right minded tack. and ran aground by ignoring all the warning bells “TO GO ABOUT”:


As with the ancient symbolic significance in the FLOATING lotus flower we are now experiencing the wonderful fragrance to clear the senses providing relief as also open in consciousness to experience a more holistic, emotionally balanced, caring and sustainable attitude to our wonderful society and the earth in which we all share our lives as the vessel Australia is steered in a new direction by Kevin Rudd at the helm.
Kevin 07 sure must also represent the ph balance of being neutral when it comes to the chemical scale between acidity and alkalinity, more good signs of his fertile mind and nature.

That's all Folks I'm out of here gotta Duck off and do my bit to look after a couple of Rats who are paddling their kayak Across the Ditch to New Zealand to deliver the good news to Helen Clarke.
