Welcome to Ravens Rationale.

The 'Welcome' Mat


Welcome to Ravens Rationale... I am the Raven and this is my Rationale.  Welcome to my world.  I am one of those who likes to comment on issues and tell a bit of a story.  Basically, these are just my thoughts/ramblings/experiences, i do hope you enjoy reading or at least get some food for thought.  


Now, I am not a little black bird but a white Aussie male who likes to write about things that interest me.  I am an Atheist, who's Anti Animal Cruelty and Pro Gun Control, i am someone who likes the monarchy in England but wants an Australian head of state.  I have a healthy irreverence to the state of politics in this 'great southern land' we call the 'best country in the world'.   I enjoy travelling, writing poetry and am interested in national and international events.


Please feel free to comment on anything you read in my blog, though i would advise you to keep your comments nice and constructive.  Please do not try to advertise other sites on this site, cause i will eventually get around to removing your comments.  It looks like there is a maximum character limit to comments, sorta like Twitter so make your comments short and sweet Cool



I have recently added an area for my poetry and called it 'Poets Corner'. Hope you enjoy my simple rhymes for these not-so simple times.  Please feel free to comment on these as you check them out. There is more to come however the titles added so far are:


# - Release The Beast
