The Fools Have Actually Fooled You


When an unpopular politician is voted out many will behave as if they've got one over on that politician. Many memes have been created showing a former politician as homeless or working at a fast food restaurant and generally having fallen on hard times and learning a hard lesson.

Nothing could be further from the truth. The politicians in question simply move on to bigger and better things and usually continue to receive a range of perks and benefits at taxpayers’ expense. If anything their attitude is along the lines of ‘bring it on!’ Sure they make some speech and look all sorrowful and surprised but they have to, can’t show too much enthusiasm or people might ask them some uncomfortable questions about what’s really going on.

As per the current tradition in politics the politicians will be called names such as fools and branded failures but from their own perspective they’ve succeeded big time. Sure they didn’t keep their promises but they only made the promises to get elected. They had a different agenda to carry out once elected. Part of that agenda is riding the parliamentary gravy train while planning for a life outside of politics.

So if anything it’s the electorate that’s been fooled and have failed to take notice of what’s really going on. Many don’t want to acknowledge this though, for some reason they feel it’s better to pretend the politicians ripping us off are just a bunch of fools.

And by that failure to notice they are inadvertently helping politicians to continue living it up at our expense while making our lives harder with their deliberate mismanagement of the nation. Politicians are not just some silly billies who happened to find themselves elected and have no idea what’s really going on as some would have you believe, they know exactly what they are doing.

You Say It's Racism? Are You For Real?


If someone claims that people are being racist against other people for being Muslims you know you can’t take that person seriously.

Individual Muslims can experience racism but that would be based on that individual Muslims race. Muslims themselves come from different racial groups and Muslims can experience racism from other Muslims. For example a white person from Ireland who happens to be a Muslim could be racist to a black person from Nigeria who happens to be a Muslim who in turn could be racist against a Malaysian who happens to be a Muslim.

So if Muslims can be racist towards each other how can anyone be racist towards Muslims as a whole?

The answer of course is they can’t and that’s because there is no such race as Muslim. You’ll usually find that the people who are crying racism are those who don’t want to discuss the current issues regarding Muslims.

Our Traditions, We'll Keep Them!


Don’t bother coming to our country and complaining about our traditions such as Christmas because our ways are what make our country the great place that it is. 

While some whine about the religious side of Christmas the fact is Christmas has evolved beyond being a Christian holiday and has something for everyone. On the religious side though, Christmas preaches peace and goodwill to all which of course doesn’t stand well with a certain cult that is out to enslave everyone.

Christmas predates the multicultural nonsense that has been inflicted on us, it is a fine tradition held dearly by this nation for many years and there is just no real reason to change it.

In any case the proponents of multiculturalism claim that having many cultures in one country is supposed to add to said country and make it better and diverse. If we are supposed to be adding to the country then how can they realistically justify trying to take away one of the country’s oldest and greatest traditions?

The left are keen to call people names, let’s throw one back at them and one that accurately describes what they really are.The best response to their nonsensical cries of racism is to call them traitors.

No Mandate? That's No Issue For Malcolm!



Article By Annie Ozard.

In 2013 the Coalition went to an election promising that the carbon tax would be abolished. That carbon tax was introduced by Labor based on a leftist scare campaign over many years regarding their line that carbon was driving climate change, which is what they formerly called global warming until it was found the Earth wasn’t actually warming. 

The Coalition won government and abolished the carbon tax with voters recognising that the CO2 line in climate change was nothing but a scam. It’s not a real threat to Australia or the world and the carbon tax was a pointless burden on society and business.

This was a mandate upon which the Coalition Government was elected, the people of Australia saw through the carbon based "climate change" and did not want taxpayers' money to be wasted on a theory that had been exposed as nothing but a United Nations lie to aid in its global power play.

Malcolm Turnbull in acting on behalf of the UN and others and with their assistance along with a biased media has since staged a coup and removed the man elected to lead Australia. Unlike the Rudd/Gillard leadership changes which saw no real change in Labor policy the Turnbull coup is taking the country down a path that is against the wishes of the Australian voters. We voted for a conservative government and now have a socialist leaning government without an election.

With this in mind any signing of the United Nations global agreement on climate change by Malcolm Turnbull and government should be considered invalid based on the lack of mandate from the Australian people. The Turnbull government does not have the right to sign any anti-carbon climate agreement especially as Turnbull is literally a stooge put in power by the people who stand to profit from carbon taxes and trading.

Only the people of Australia can give the government such a right. If wishing to proceed the government should go again to the Australian people to request that right or seek a referendum prior to the UN demanding agreement.

Of course we know they won’t. Representing the Australian people is the last thing on Malcolm Turnbull’s mind. His goal is to enslave Australia and find himself in a lucrative job courtesy of those who benefitted from his betrayal of Australia.

Goldman Sachs’ Latest Coup D’état: Australia


Article by Daniel Edmonds.

The great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money has toppled yet another democratically elected national leader and installed one of its own as leader.

On Monday, 14 September 2015 Malcolm Bligh Turnbull, the former Goldman Sachs Australia chairman, staged a traitorous political coup d’état within the conservative Liberal Party of Australia, toppling the duly elected Prime Minister, Tony Abbott and installing himself as Prime Minister, without any mandate from the people of Australia.

Tony Abbott, was elected Prime Minister of Australia in 2013 on a platform of climate scepticism, and border security, promising to abolish the highly unpopular Carbon Tax, introduced by the previous left-wing Labor/Greens government, and to stop the flood of illegal immigration by boats that had cost thousands of refugees’ lives at sea.

Tony Abbott is also known for his traditional socially conservative views on abortion and marriage, attracting venom from the mainstream media the likes of which have never before been seen in Australia.

More importantly, Tony Abbott, along with Canada’s Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, were the two remaining world leaders not falling into line and gleefully handing over their nations to the New World Order at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, scheduled to take place in Paris, France from November 30 to December 11, 2015.

In this chillingly prophetic clip from Lord Christopher Monkton, recorded in 2014, the plot to take out Tony Abbott, by Malcolm Turnbull at the bidding of his globalist masters before the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, is outlined.

As the events of Monday, 14 September 2015 confirm, Malcolm “Goldman Sachs” Turnbull did his masters’ bidding right on queue; just like the Goldman Sachs coup d’états in Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece and other nations.

Australia has been the victim of a globalist coup d’état. We are no longer a democracy, but a branch office of the UN, Goldman Sachs global government; the parliament rendered a vestigial illusion of democracy, merely in place to manage the crony rent-seeking rigged economy and to enforce UN diktats.

In the final words of the real Prime Minister of Australia, Tony Abbott “May God bless this great Commonwealth”.

Are They The Fools Or Are They Fooling You?


They say a fool and his money are soon parted. That seems to work in reverse for politicians because while they are apparently fools money seems to find its way to them in the form of expenses and lucrative pensions. These are paid for by the people calling them fools.

Apart from being called fools for taking our money politicians also get called fools for not keeping their promises. It’s an interesting position for many to take because at the same time they will acknowledge those same politicians only made said promises just to get elected. After admitting that point they then proceed to explain what politicians need to do to keep the promises that they know were empty to begin with.

People may be aware of the advance fee email scam where con artists promise you millions, the con artists claim all you need to do is give them some money first and then you’ll be rich. After you fall for their promises you simply end up out of pocket. They never intended to keep their promises, they just said what they needed to say to get the money they were after.

Political promises are usually just as empty so thinking there is any point in telling politicians what they need to do to keep their promises is like trying to tell the email scammers what they need to do to keep theirs. Why would you bother since you know the promises were empty to begin with?

Because of this you’ll find they aren’t concerned with their legacies or serving the country. As far as becoming prime minister is concerned, the only reason most of them want it is for the bigger perks involved. Making history is not on the agenda.

Their main aim is remaining on the political gravy train for as long as they can, those supposedly stupid things that they say are really aimed at the people they want to get votes from. It’s not aimed at impressing the people they know will never vote for them.

A fool and his money are soon parted? While people are busy calling politicians fools those so called fools are parting people from their money. They usually retire from politics set for life thanks to the generous post political perks they awarded themselves. People called them fools for doing that as well.

Are they the fools or are they fooling you?

Hypocrisy? The Smoke And Mirrors Will Hide That.

The Labor faithful are bleating that the Liberal Party has blocked gay marriage and are calling the Liberals some nasty names in the process. Labor will save the day they say, vote Labor and they will deal with the most important issue we apparently have ever faced. 

While they gnash their teeth over this they deliberately ignore the fact the ALP had six years to pass legislation in favour of gay marriage but deliberately chose not to do so.

Labor’s Penny Wong who is suggesting she is less than impressed with the Coalition supported Labor’s anti-gay marriage stance while they were in government. While it’s correct to point out that Labor are hypocrites in this area there is a reason behind the two faced Labor stance.

While Labor likes to pretend they are the champion of supposedly suppressed people they also court votes from a group whose religion says gay people should be killed without question.

This could put Labor in a conundrum but they have the ready-made solution they know many of their supporters will accept without question. Their solution? Stall, stall, stall then blame Abbott for blocking gay marriage, blame conservatives and blame anyone they can. 

They can then pretend they support gay marriage, avoid offending a large portion of their voting base and wait for the next election where they’ll blame the Liberal Party for every problem they can while deliberately ignoring their own role in creating those problems.

Labor are all smoke and mirrors but that’s what works for them so don’t expect a change in that approach anytime soon.

Make Your Case And Make It Real




This isn't an opinion on gay marriage, it's an observation. Some are saying that allowing gay marriage is the start of the proverbial slippery slope where other things such as multiple partners or marrying pets will be accepted. Then the things we have to accept will get more and more bizarre and in turn cause bulk harm to our societies.

If people are concerned then maybe it’s time they became more active in their communities, more active politically and more vigilant instead of going with the standard response which is actually quite useless and has never achieved anything realistic whatsoever.

And what is the standard response when politicians and other known figures do something that appears to be bad? It is to call them fools and pretend that’s achieved something and then do nothing else.

Fools or not these people are doing things many do not like and they are all getting away with it since calling them fools doesn’t actually stop them. They don’t care what you think of them, only that they can keep doing what they want without any real opposition. Calling someone a fool is really just a meaningless act.

And now let’s look at how the U.S. Supreme Court gay marriage ruling affects Australia. Quite simply It doesn’t, it affects the U.S. It may be something our own courts can refer to but outside of that it means nothing.

For those who support gay marriage here, a suggestion that this country is out of step with the rest of the world is not a reason to adopt it here. The only reason something like that should be allowed is if it’s the right thing for this country and something like that is not decided for us by another country otherwise we’ll find ourselves obliged to adopt everything else from that country and the gay marriage advocates might not like some of the things we end up with.

In other words make the case for Australia. What other countries are doing, what year it is or cries of homophobia are not justifications for it. If you can’t put forward a case that doesn’t rely on mentioning those things then you don’t have a case.

Never Mind The Chaos, Here's Your Independence.



The initial tone of this article was supposed to be a line of sarcasm aimed at the feel-good factions in the West who played a large part in Africa’s slide into chaos but in researching the various events I get the impression the people who called for the West’s uncontrolled withdrawal from Africa really believe they have done the right thing.

Africa, the story so far.

Some black people want white colonialism out of Africa. After all, the black people were being held down and the white people were racist and the source of all their woes. There are a group of white people who agree with them and chant a lot of slogans. The real issues don't seem to be addressed but some people get a jolly little feel-good moment out of it all

It’s only fair, give them back their countries, they deserve to make their own way and they will do it without white people around. A British politician not caring for how things will affect people on the continent talks of a ‘wind of change’ in Africa. It’s a speech that sounds noble to the naïve ears around the world but to the people with a clue it really tells of betrayal and changing large parts of Africa from safe and stable to places of absolute despair.

One by one the former colonies become independent. Most descend into chaos immediately. With a starry eyed disregard for what’s really happening Britain’s Harold Wilson brags that Britain has granted independence to more people than any other nation in history.  Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith responds by pointing out in one instance it resulted in a million people being killed in 3 days.

Most of Africa is now under black rule, this is also known as majority rule and somehow it is something special. However the anti-colonialist/feel good brigade aren’t as happy as they could be. Rhodesia and South Africa are still governed by white people. These countries weren’t colonies of exploitation, they have substantial white populations who actually live in that part of the world and aren’t too keen to give up what they have worked so hard to build.

The anti-colonialists demand that the white populations hand over their nations to majority rule and allow the black populations to enjoy all the benefits that such freedom will bring them just like the rest of Africa. Having had dealings with many of the people who actually left these lucky nations and hearing how the wonders of majority rule brought mass rape, looting and murder amongst other wonders  the Rhodesian’s and  South African’s, much to the surprise of the anti-colonial brigade, firmly decline.

Realising that the British government was more interested in appeasing the newly independent anti-white dictatorships of Africa and Asia than doing what’s in the best interests of their country the Rhodesian government declares its independence from the United Kingdom. It was already independent in practice so the declaration shouldn’t cause any real issues.

Shocked that the Rhodesians want to prevent their country from enjoying the benefits of majority rule most nations around the world condemn Rhodesia and announce sanctions. Rhodesia’s independence does not follow the general African example of plunging the country into chaos, in fact life goes on the same. This is not good for the nations black people appears to be the belief of all those crying foul. They must be right, just because something worked in the past doesn’t mean you can keep doing it. This is 1965 after all and somehow the current year is supposed to stop certain things from happening. Somehow.

Sanctions are enforced against Rhodesia. There appears to be no real legality in those sanctions but there are plenty of feel good moments in them for the starry eyed white anti-colonial brigade. There are also communist backed ‘freedom fighters’ who may be able to save the day for the white feel good brigade, they have an opportunity to go bring down a stable and safe nation in the name of freedom. There will be raping, looting and murdering while they fight for freedom. It’s for the greater good after all.

With those happy thoughts in mind the Bush War starts in Rhodesia. The freedom fighters go to war against the Rhodesian people to bring them the previously mentioned benefits of majority rule. The freedom fighters force tribal villages to provide food and shelter with no concern for the villagers own well-being and safety. The villagers are the first people in Rhodesia to experience the benefits that majority rule will bring everyone in that country.

The rest of the world praises the freedom fighters that are fighting bravely against the majority to bring the benefits of majority rule. Those nasty white Rhodesian’s are led by Ian Smith and although he is a hero of the Second World War who fought on behalf of Rhodesia and the British Commonwealth he is now considered a very naughty person for refusing to accept the wonders of majority rule. He stands for freedom and civilisation and that’s just silly! Such antiquated notions have no place in the modern world.

That naughty Ian Smith, the leader of an Incredibly Awesome Nation, is standing in the way of that wonderful majority rule that most of Africa has. The black people of Rhodesia do not support the Ian Smith regime bleat the anti-colonial brigade. All black people would never have a thing to do with him and the ‘whites’ whose army are illegally fighting against the brave freedom fighters whom all black people love and admire. For some reason it isn’t mentioned that most of the Rhodesian Army comprises of black volunteers. Maybe the feel good brigade know better than the people who actually live in the country and want to ensure Rhodesia gets the majority rule everyone really wants and but just don’t know it yet.
Rhodesian Soldiers

Rhodesia comes to a deal for majority rule that is different to the rest of Africa. It acknowledges that majority rule is inevitable and it also acknowledges that overall the majority of the black population are not yet ready to participate in a modern democracy. Given time they will be but this is not good enough for the feel good brigade and the communist funded freedom fighters. After all, it’s 1979. Somehow this means the Rhodesians should surrender since bad things can’t happen anymore.

Rhodesia is renamed Zimbabwe Rhodesia and has fair and free elections that all citizens can participate in. The communist funded freedom fighters back away from the idea of fair and free elections for some reason. The election is won by moderate nationalist Bishop Abel Muzorewa who wants to take advantage of the strong economy the new country has inherited and bring peace. He offers amnesty to the communist funded freedom fighters and points out the country has what they fought for, majority rule. They mostly refuse though. It appears they have a different definition of majority rule. They complain about the results of an election they actually boycotted and keep on fighting.

The West pressures Zimbabwe Rhodesia to give consideration to the definition of majority rule that the communist funded freedom fighters subscribe to. For some reason the wishes of those who boycotted fair and free elections must be given serious consideration over those who made the effort to run for office and those who made the effort to vote. Maybe the fact that the country moved to majority rule without the West’s starry eyed feel good guidance has ruffled the feathers of those who wanted to be able to take credit for guiding the country into the wonderful world of majority rule in Africa.

Britain takes control of the country and tries to pretend they were really in control all along by referring to it as the ’British Dependency of Southern Rhodesia’. The country had actually been ruling itself since 1923 and Britain heavily depended on Rhodesia’s help in several wars but never mind that, they must be taught a little lesson for daring to think for themselves and rejecting majority rule based on what they had witnessed it doing in other countries. If only they had accepted the official perspective that majority rule is wonderful! You just have to ignore the raping, looting and murder that always takes place, why couldn’t they do that?

Elections are held and on 18 April 1980 the country becomes the independent Republic of Zimbabwe. The country once again has majority rule. They actually had it before Britain took control but no one is supposed to take any notice of that. The elections are won by the communist funded freedom fighter Robert Mugabe who promises to fairly rule Zimbabwe and encourages the white people to stay. He is supported by former Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith who offers advice to the new government. The future looks steady for the new country. After all, it’s 1980, what could go wrong?

Everything goes wrong for the country as the Mugabe government starts attacking white farmers. Mugabe complains that the whites have made sure they have the best farming land in the country quoting figures of how small the white population is compared to the amount of productive land they hold. Many in the West join the cry as well, shame on the whites they say, give it back to the blacks! Somehow this means nothing is really going wrong. Not many of the feel good brigade seem to notice that while Mugabe is crusading against the white farmers he is eliminating his political enemies as well.

Many white farmers lose their farms. Initially the farmers received payment but later on the farms are just seized without compensation. Farm production drops and Zimbabwe goes from being the bread basket of southern Africa to being a basket case. It turns out the white farmers weren’t actually hogging all the best land in the country but simply had the best worked land. The white farmer’s modern farming machinery and techniques provided them with the best yield giving them the most out of what they had.

The life expectancy of the people in Zimbabwe goes from 60 to 34. The economy collapses and people are starving. Zimbabwe follows what the rest of Africa experienced with majority rule. The people who helped bring down Rhodesia either praise Mugabe or are looking at white ruled South Africa while extolling the wonders of majority rule that other African nations have.

Many in the West protest against apartheid in South Africa. They chant many things in solidarity with those living under it. Some come up with plans that are intended to force South Africa to end apartheid but most just chant some cutesy slogans then go to their nice homes and have dinner afterwards.

In a whites only election whites of South Africa vote to end apartheid and allow majority rule. They should have done this a long time ago bleat the protestors. They have no real grounds for concern, everything should be fine. It’s 1994 after all, bad things cannot happen now. Anyway the world is watching the brave new South Africa take its baby steps into nationhood, nothing can go wrong with the world watching.

The ruling African National Congress positions itself to hold power with little opposition, the nation’s constitution allows it a lot of leverage and the ANC implements affirmative action. Traditionally affirmative action is a form of state sanctioned racism designed to give certain minorities an unfair advantage to help fudge certain statistics. In South Africa it gives the racial majority an unfair advantage and helps bring down many businesses because they have to hire based on race, not qualifications.

Despite declaring they are against racism the feel good brigade who claim they ended apartheid are silent when the white people of South Africa experience racism. The racism experienced makes apartheid look tame by comparison but not a peep is heard from those who claim to have freed South Africa.

White farmers in South Africa are targeted and over 3,000 are murdered. The ANC shows its concern by chanting slogans in support of the murders. In general 50 murders are committed every day in South Africa and 500,000 women are raped every year. The numbers of child and baby rape are amongst the highest in the world. Maybe the feel good brigade think South Africa is simply overindulging on the benefits of majority rule.

The majority of Africans live in abject poverty, with starvation, crime and AIDS running rampant. Again, not a peep is heard by the people of the West who freed Africa from ‘the whites’. Perhaps they are busy rejoicing on their so called successes and looking for new low effort causes to champion.
               
While all this is happening many black people leave the chaos in Africa and move to the countries run by white people. Many do well for themselves but there is a large group within those countries who claim they are being held down and that white people are racist and are the source of all their woes. There are a group of white people who agree with them and chant a lot of slogans. The real issues don't seem to be addressed but some people get a jolly little feel-good moment out of it all………..

The Howard Era In Plain Facts And Figures

.
One thing Labor supporters like to do in defence of the Rudd/Gillard era of economic vandalism and the high borrowing ways of Labor in general is to pretend that the Howard era was actually a debacle that was of no benefit to Australia. They’ll bleat that the only way the Howard government paid down debt was by asset sales and follow this with claims Howard had left the country economically in bad shape.

Somehow this perspective justifies Rudd/Gillard taking Australia from a negative debt position to over $350 billion worth of debt within six years. Howard paid down debt by asset sales after all, Labor could have done that, anybody can do that so runs their logic. This of course ignores that it was the Hawke/Keating Labor government that got the asset sales ball rolling. $3 billion worth of assets were sold outright and $3.4 billion in shares were sold only the money obtained by Labors asset sales didn’t actually pay down debt.

So without the spin let’s take a look at the situation and the numbers, in 1996 the Howard government inherited the $96 billion debt from the previous Fraser and Hawke/Keating governments. To pay down this debt the Liberals continued with the Labor policy of selling assets. $11 billion worth of assets were sold outright and $53 billion in shares were floated for a total of $64 billion that was used to pay down the debt.

$96 billion minus $64 billion leaves $32 billion, this remaining amount was also paid down and not by the proceeds of asset sales. Not only was the debt paid but there were regular budget surpluses and by the end of the Howard government the Future Fund was in place holding $50 billion and there was $20 billion in the bank that was providing the budget with $1 billion in interest per year. If this was all solely down to the asset sales without any real economic skill then the Howard government certainly knew how to stretch a dollar.

During the nine years of the Howard government Australia functioned as a welfare state, was running continued budget surpluses, unemployment was low, the cost of living was at reasonable levels and the debt was gone.

Under the subsequent Rudd/Gillard government the surpluses were gone, the money in the bank was gone, the debt was back bigger than ever and accompanied by corresponding cuts to services and welfare to help fund the interest repayments. Job losses were high, business closures were high and the cost of living was exceptionally high yet it was actually Howard who left the country in bad shape?

The facts and figures say otherwise.

Refer to http://www.finance.gov.au/property/asset-sales/past-sales.html for information regarding the asset sales.

New Faces, Same Old Debt

.
There are calls within the Liberal Party for Tony Abbott to be replaced as party leader based on the election results in Victoria and Queensland. Tony has downplayed this and claims it’s the sign of a robust party.

Tony comes across as unconcerned and that may be with good reason. After all by the time the next federal election comes along people nationwide will have heard of the economic disasters being played out in Victoria, South Australia and (quite likely) Queensland under the Labor governments there.

From those states there will be news of  constant lies from Labor along with things such as skyrocketing debt and environmental scams all adding a massive burden on people and in many cases costing them everything they have.

That in turn should refresh people’s memories of what Labor did at the federal level last time around that got them voted out and prove that being in opposition won’t have changed their ways. It’ll be more debt, more lies and also more illegals coming to our shores.

It doesn’t matter if there are new faces in charge, the self-serving agenda of Labor is exactly the same as it always has been.

Queensland Election 2015

.
There is a belief out there that the ALP have learned their lesson from their 2012 defeat and they are all penitent and wouldn’t dare do the same things again. The fact they presented themselves as the saviour of Queensland and the LNP as the people wrecking Queensland just shows us the deception continues with the ALP.

They were presenting the proposed asset leases by the LNP as asset sales and as the worst thing anyone could do and behaving as if their own hands are clean on the issue. After deliberately going into the 2009 election concealing their true plans they started selling or leasing assets as well as cutting services. The actions taken by the ALP massively pushed up the cost of living in Queensland.

The reason the ALP sales and cuts is because they had taken Queensland’s debt from $15 billion to $89 billion in the space of a year and needed funds to pay the interest on the debt. The debt didn’t decrease though as they kept on borrowing.

This election result and getting themselves voted back in at all has been an amazing feat by the ALP, they created the problems Queensland has, they cast the people trying to fix the problems in a bad light and then the ALP presented themselves as the people to fix everything.

And the LNP got voted out for doing the job they were voted in to do.

Gimme Gimme Gimme! After All If You Can't Beat Them, Join Them.

.
By Annie Ozard
Well, I have to congratulate Labor/Union Party on what looks like being a win and certainly a loss for Campbell Newman. The swing must be massive, but did Labor gain this swing, or are the people of Queensland completely unaware of what they have done? Yes, I believe that is what has happened.
Firstly, until the people of this once fine country, wake up to the fact it is impossible for a government to set and execute an agenda within 3 short years, particularly if left a fiscal mess as the LNP was, we will continue along the path we are going, which is self-destruction.
Secondly, until our two major parties have massive shake-ups we will continue to have the only option of electing people that do not have the capability to run a multi-billion dollar "organisation". Many of our "representatives" are there because they can't get a job elsewhere or because of the need for greed and/or power. These are not the types we want or need.
Thirdly, until the younger generations of Australians cease with the "gimme gimme gimme" attitude (and a few older generations), our country will forever be the mess it is now.
On that note, from here on in, I shall join many in this group and become part of their "gimme gimme gimme" society. No longer will I sit back paying taxes and getting nothing for them. For every tax increase imposed or, in the case of a Labor government every deficit increase, I shall demand more and more and more.
YEP, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em running this country into the ground.

Criminal Economics.

.
Crime would appear to be a necessity to the economy.

Basically Australia has a post industrial service economy which was underwritten by a mining boom.

Because one major economic performance measure looks more towards sales and services made by companies and not by the manufacturing of goods it’s pretty much the more sales the better.

Where crime fits in to the picture is really quite simple, a criminal breaks into your home and for example steals your DVD player and other sundries, there are then several expenses you face.

First of all you hopefully have insurance, your insurance company has been receiving money from you and the money you have been paying has been contributing to the insurance company’s bottom line.

Then you need to get the break in damage repaired. Usually someone needs to be employed for this task. That person will be doing a job and earning money that they otherwise would not be earning.

Then you need to buy a new DVD player and other items, retailers make sales that they would not otherwise be making if a crime had not been committed.


If you are assaulted maybe you will need medical treatment, medication will be prescribed, money for the chemist and if your clothes are damaged they will need to be replaced which means more money for a clothes retailer.

Maybe the experience has traumatised you so you seek help from an appropriate health professional, another patient for them and more money for their practice or maybe you just start drinking heavily which is more sales for a bottle shop.

Money is spent that otherwise wouldn’t have been spent. 

Because of crime more money is spent and in the process it’s helping keep people employed, helping keep businesses running and helping the economy so if a crime is committed against you don’t feel bad because it’s actually for the greater good since crime is helping this nation to have a strong economy.

A Room With No View.



You'll see them in some Internet discussion rooms, the people who want the argument to be permanently slanted in their favour and then cry when things don’t go how they want. They then post that they are leaving the room because they wanted somewhere people can speak freely then run off to one where everyone agrees without question. 

Those rooms aren't always a bed of roses for them though:

Warmist 1: I feel so smug, I’m glad we have this room where we can talk about climate change and present our data. We are all free thinking here and capable of reasoned debate. I am so glad we are all individuals.

Warmist 2: Yes, we are all individuals.

Warmist 1: Thankfully we don’t have those climate realists.

Warmist 2: Yes, no realists here.
