Vyvyan Stott, Federal

What caused all the simultaneous fires? C02 generated global warming, excessive logging, dry lightning storms, arsonists, terrorists, acts of God, natural cycles, or – directed energy weapons?

Who would do such a thing? Our traditional enemies, the New World Order care not what they destroy as long as they can, in the end, control.

Paranoia far-fetched? I heartily hope so, but the evidence points to a major attack on/at peaceful, prosperous western culture. And a godless nation cannot remain free.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Welcome back, it’s been a while…… Let me guess, you’re about to tell us in your next, not-long awaited installment, that we are witnessing the wrath of some great invisible all-powerful sky spirit (male, of course, and white) seeking revenge for the twin sins of approving same sex marriage, and for too few of us voting for the unChristian Democrats? New World Order? OMG!

    Well I’d rather that you stay round here in the hills mumbling harmlessly, with the occasional hilarious conspiracy theory letter, than pretending to represent us in parliament, with your parliamentary vote bought with concessions to the whacky anti-science, anti-common sense agenda of the religious right!

  2. Viv! Wondered what happened to you! Good to see you’re still got passion to set the record straight. You heard about the fire starters too eh. Me too but it’s being spun as ‘climate change’ so some peoples pea brains won’t get they bubbles burst but you and me know the truth. Keep up the fight man. I’m with you.
