How to turn off Facebook ads from your profile

Turning off Facebook ads from spamming you is actually quite simple and it really gives you more space on your Facebook page. I hate all the make money in no time ads and these are the steps to remove the ads.

3 Steps to remove Facebook ads with Firefox

  1. Install Greasemonkey addon – this addon basically enables you to put custom scripts into your browser to filter ads out.
  2. Restart your firefox
  3. Install one of these userscripts:
    • Remove All Facebook Ads Removes banner ads, sponsored items in news feed and sponsored sidebar items from Facebook.
    • NoFacebookAds Removes Facebook flyer and network adverts, including social adverts such as the annoying Danish barber adverts.

You are ad free!

Stop Julia Guillard’s Flood Tax and Keep Your Freedom

I didn’t vote for Julia Guillard and more than half of Australia didnt either but now you are going to have to pay her.

Forcing people to pay the flood tax is killing the recognition of all the Australians who give voluntarily

If Julia just took her beak out of the Australian’s pockets and let them donate or help out on their own free will. 2 things would happen:

  1. More money would go to those who need it
  2. More money would come from those who can afford it
  3. It would cost the government less to rebuild because people would be happy to oblige and help.
  4. People who donate and help would get the recognition they deserve as opposed to be forced to give

When you are forced to give, like when you pay your personal taxes, you don’t enjoy it and you don’t feel any recognition for the hardwork you put in to build the roads, schools and hospitals. A thank you note would be nice from the taxman, you do pay his salary and all his mates which help collect the money.

  • Are you going to get any recognition when you hand over a 1% levy? No.
  • Are you going to feel that its actually going to the people in need? No.
  • Are we better off that we have someone intervening in a process which would happen naturally? No.

One thing which really struck a cord with me was Joel’s piece about how Australians naturally help their mates. More so Australians naturally help each other and don’t need to be coerced to do it. I saw that in the fires in Sydney in the 90’s and I see it at the beach all the time, when something goes wrong.

Why we never wanted and don’t want Julia Gillard anymore

When Julia Gillard was campaigning she kept using these types of words:

These are all dangerous thoughts.

What do we need to change in Australia? – The country is fine. Everythings actually pretty amazing. Anyone who screams about change and leadership together is looking to take control. We dont want more control in Australia. We already have the government in our ears, eyes and pocket. We don’t want a your plan, we have our own plans.

Fundamentally, we don’t need you, Julia or any other government to control us and guide us. We can do it ourselves.

We can clean up the flood damage, just like we already have mate to mate. Just how we did in other tragedies. I am saddened at Julia’s quest for control and her disbelief in the fundamental Australian quality of mateship.

Stop fighting for the plan you want to impose on us Julia, we don’t want you to control us. To tax us more. To spend our money. We can do it ourselves and we won’t need to pay as many government officials salaries along the way to do it. Do you want to be handing over your house’s title because the government needs it. Save your house, save your freedom and get rid of Julia.

George Bush Killed America

It only just dawned upon me that I lived through the last great years of America before George Bush killed it. Puppetted by the big capitalists, who like in Robinhood wanted to squeeze every last dollar out of people even if they die, George Bush drove it into the ground. He killed the a great empire which will now, never be spoken of as the most powerful nation on earth. America had a great rein after they were the only functioning country post World War 2. Did some amazing things, like put men on the moon. But greed broke them and like the British Empire, their guns will crumble and break like sand into the sea.

While the Americans are stumbling there is a new powerhouse growing in Asia. Its not a Military Bully like America, who punched up and invaded the Germans, Koreans, Vietnamese, Japanese and the Iraqies, its an Economic Bully. The Chinese own America. They don’t need to invade the country because they already own it. Why invade a place when you are making money and you control it, just let it keep stumbling and ticking over while you profit and grow stronger. Its a lot easier to build amazing guns when you have a lot of money!

When you wake up from your chinese made sheets and put your chinese made clothes on your back in the morning and eat breakfast sitting on your chinese made chair, think about who owns you. I love chinese people, always have and always will. They are hard workers, educated, smart and I want to aspire to be more chinese as I grow. They have sat in the dark long enough and like Sun Tsu said “He who is prudent and lies in wait for an enemy who is not, will be victorious. “

To the men who sit in the dark and surrounded you Georgie, “You did a good job for a while there. But you needed to listen to some of the other people when they were singing out advice.”
