The World in Decline

 

I didn’t enjoy the 50’s at the time. I was a teenager and at school for most of it. But if I compare it to today, I know which I prefer.

I had a difficult time with my parents. I never did any dishonourable thing whilst living at home, but my mother always thought the worst of me which things were completely untrue. I was kicked out of home at 18 years of age when none of my friends had left home. But getting a job at short notice was not a problem. My mother gave me 50c and told me to go to Melbourne and not to come back without a job. I was scared, nervous and dismayed that my mother cared so little for me. Luckily I did come back with a job, just for the asking. The first place I approached made a position for me. A couple of months later I was told to leave home.

Life was simple back then, even though you could be sacked for no reason given, another job was just around the corner. I managed for years without a car and telephone. I was 23 years old before I got my first landline and signed my first lease. There were no House Inspections back then and I completely redecorated an entire 3 bedroom apartment with very limited permission.

I was pretty much oblivious to politics. As long as I was receiving a pay packet every week and I could pay my rent, I was doing ok. I never saw a homeless person or someone begging and I had no idea that there was such a thing as the Dole. I have always been pretty good with money and I budget well. Perhaps they should make me Treasurer ha ha ha.

Today is a different story. I am now on the Age Pension. I could have been a millionaire, but I chose to ignore opportunities if I didn’t deem them ethical or pleasant. At 26 I bought my first house without any help from the government. I renovated it all by myself, except for new floorboards throughout. I kept it for 13 months during which time it was rented out and I went back overseas.

After 13 months I sold it for 100% profit. I could have made 200% if I had gone to auction. I was made an offer after only one day on the market and I accepted it. My dream was to be sole proprietor of several shops; which is what I chose. I never went bankrupt and I never starved.

Living on the Pension is life on the edge: Especially with this LNP Government in Australia who only have respect for the rich and have an appalling lack of empathy for anyone who is not. They slap themselves on the back repeatedly trying to convince the intellectually ignorant that they are doing such a great job at cleaning up Labor’s mess. Labor never left a mess. How can they have left a mess if the Treasurer was awarded for the best performance in the Industrial world? But MSM never pick them up for it. I don’t know if it is because they are not quick enough to realise what was actually said. Or they choose to ignore it as they are secretly on their side. Whatever reason, we have entered the World of Post Truth Age. For Australia Tony Abbott started it off, got away with it and now it’s become the norm. I guess another Tony, Tony Blair started it off in the UK with his weapons of mass destruction lie. And now as of today, January 1st 2017 the US has Donald Trump.

If the media do not pull these liars up, call them out, who will? We can all scream on social media, but it makes little difference. Who was it who said that Twitter was mob mentality and not to take any notice? I despise being called part of a mob. I am a clear thinking individual who knows what is going on and does not like it.

Every direction I look there is trouble. I look to the south and ice caps are melting. The ocean is littered with rubbish, none of which was put there by me. I look to the north and I see trouble in Indonesia, The Philippines, Papua New Guinea, West Papua, Timor Leste. Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, all of the Arab States. Most of Africa to the west, most of south America. The USA, once Trump throws his weight around. And then there is Europe. Everything is not fine there either. Democratic countries are leaning to the Right. Why? Because the Left leaning governments have been thwarted by Multi Nationals and Right leaning politicians in league with the multinationals. The democratic System is not conducive to wise thinking and wise governing of any country. I am appalled to watch Parliament devolve into a slanging match. The thing is, if one party does it and the other doesn’t as in Julia Gillard’s case, they are deemed weak at best and useless at worst. That’s why Julia Gillard gave her misogyny speech. It went a long way to telling Tony Abbott that his behaviour was no longer tolerated. I wish Julia Gillard would come back. Now that people have woken up that the party they elected is doing a rotten job and that she was really brilliant under very trying circumstances; they may well acknowledge and admire her style of leadership after this miserable lot we have to contend with now. Name me a country who thinks their country is doing brilliantly. If you say China and Russia, you would be wrong. Only the governing/ruling Party thinks that is so. Both countries are having problems. Both countries are ambitious and the rest of the world waits to see what will happen when Trump is President. I’m not expecting great things that will benefit me and my fellow Australians in any way. Let’s hope that I am completely wrong and world peace is knocking on our door.

It’s Like Talking to a Drunk

Have you ever talked to a drunk, someone who is very drunk, when you yourself are stone cold sober? That is what it is like talking to an LNP supporter, or an LNP MP for that matter. No matter how many facts you present, they counter with absolute nonsense. They spout forth untruths, downright lies and rubbish as if it were a dictum. Then they have the nerve to tell you that what you have said is all lies. The nerve of them! You can talk logic until you end up going nuts with frustration, but the other will not budge an inch.

They are so rooted in their beliefs that they cannot see reason or logic. Guess what this means? They have been brainwashed by MSM et al. Rupert Murdick has every reason to do everything in his power to get Tony Abbott elected, as Abbott would find it an honour to be backed by Rupert Dickhead, Oooops did I just write that? There are some very clever dicks. Abbott is clever. I’ll give him that, but it is not an attribute to be admired. If Tony Abbott gets elected, he must prepare himself for a backlash and possible violation of Australian standards. Of course Rupert Murdick wants to be able to control the PM, which he hasn’t a hope in hell with Julia Gillard. Julia Gillard is strong and tough. Abbutt is weak and pathetic. ONLY a brainwashed populous would find this man equitable and represent the good of the country. This man if he wins the next election will be an imposter. Now is it possible that people in high places may be brainwashed also? Could judges be brainwashed for instance? There are paedophile judges living in this country of Australia, according to an escort agency. They come to a dominatrix to be whipped. Now why would this be? Are they feeling so guilty they are compelled to seek punitive action for their sins of their own volition? And what sins might they be? Paedophilia? Child sex abuse? Physical abuse of a child? Rape? We don’t tend to think of judges in these terms. If I was writing this in any number of countries, I would be arrested. So may as well while I can. Abbott cannot be trusted on privacy laws or security on ANY level. If he wins with a landslide, he then has a mandate to do whatever he likes. We will then have George W Abbott the Idiot. I know I can write this about him, he said on TV that people have to take insults on the chin.

George W Abbott will change the very nature of this country. By that I mean Australia will change on these levels. 1. Financial and economic. 2. Farming practices will radically change. Small farms will be bought out by huge conglomerations, much of which will be owed by China. He will not have any Mandarin speaking MP’s to advise him, and he will constantly have foot in mouth disease. CSG mining will go ahead and the artesian water will become polluted. I have it on good authority that underground water supplies are already beyond repair now as I write due to LNP State government approvals of CSG mining not only where it shouldn’t go, but before a proper environmental impact studies has been made. There is still hope for some areas and Tony Bourke has made it harder for mining companies to get licences.

When everything goes pear-shaped, the mass cry will be “it’s all Labor’s fault. It’s all their lies that got us into trouble. W#e told you they lied.” It will be a mass cry from MSM also, especially from Rupert Murdick. And isn’t this great news to sell his flagging news print? 3. We will become a 3rd World country, as poverty levels will rival per capita that of Nepal or Bhutan. There will be beggars in the streets and homeless in all sections of every town. There will be NO growth what so ever and you know what that means. 0 growth is stagnation. – 0.02% = recession and – 3% = depression. Then he will go against all economists’ advice and will print money like never before. Just you wait and see. 4. Hospitals will close, just as long as he is healthy, bugger anyone else. 5. Aged care will be a disaster. 6. Climate change will be a dirty word for which if you utter there may be a consequence. His promise to plant trees to counter-act climate change, (which secretly he still thinks is bunkum) will not eventuate. He will deem it too costly to implement.

The State governments will all get less, while 7. GST is sure to go up by 50%. Be prepared. Expect this and if it doesn’t happen you can thank your lucky stars, as that’s all you will have going for you. Inflation will escalate and go out of control. At this point I would expect Julia Gillard to go to the Governor General and apply to have Abbott removed as PM and to have herself re-instated to her rightful position. Every LNP who had lied, misrepresented the truth, distorted or exaggerated would be removed from their position in Parliament. They should NOT be allowed to remain on the back bench. They are useless human beings and a waste of space as it is, let alone degrading Parliament the way they do. These lying LNP MP’s have degraded Parliament to rock bottom. Never in history has Parliament degenerated into such a pit of vipers ready to poison and strike at any opportunity unprovoked. I partially blame the Speaker, all of them, for letting this behaviour escalate to criminal proportions. Just as the Pope allowed cover-ups in the Catholic Church, which should be deemed criminal, so should what the Speaker allowed many times in Parliament be deemed unlawful. An MP cannot lie in Parliament, just as you cannot get away with lying in court. That is perverting the course of Justice. So a lie in Parliament should be perverting the course of Parliament. JAIL!

Julia Gillard as reinstalled PM should introduce new laws prohibiting lies to be reported as truth and severe punitive action would result. There should be extreme deprivation of liberty at least. For they have taken an extreme liberty in their actions so far and should be an offense for which they could be sued. Yes I sound gloomy and I’m really a happy person, but it is the reality of the above that has done it to me. There is NO hope for the future with Abbott at the helm. He will be like a ship’s captain trying to steer his ship without a rudder. A huge problem that the next PM has to tackle without funds to do so, is the debriefing of all the brainwashed souls MSM mesmerised. How do we know that subliminal messages are not being injected into news items? We don’t and I wouldn’t put it past them, if they thought they could get away with it. Someone should opt to dissect some news tapes to check anywhere where it is suspect.

If you do not share my views and you are illogical and unreasonable it is a waste of time commenting, as I won’t approve your comment, unless it has some merit. I may use it as an example for instance of ignorance and lack of logic.
