SO, who’s sick and tired of American self destruction?
Turn on any electrical appliance and its a wonder someone is not giving you a opinion via you kettle or coffee machine … yet
They’ve run out of platforms to waffle to each other, behaved like spoilt children, each and every one playing the victim.
Its pretty easy for an outsider to understand over the last 4 years a Once a worldly conversant, broad thinking, leader of the free world …. In their eyes only I might add, been dumbed down to an internal pox heap of red or blue, all while they are loosing one person every 6 minutes with Covid and really not caring or in denial.
Im not going to bore you all shitless with my opinion as like bum holes we all have one, so what will happen will happen, civil unrest, war with the relatives, self destruction what ever, some feel its their destiny, some playing there victim card and others have no idea but will follow the masses to just conform.
The end result will be the same, history repeats, its not until a nation is total on its knees will the population realise they’ve been conned. Rome, Germany, Italy, even Russia all had to hit the floor, millions dead, infrastructures destroyed and none of the population would recognise it until the big hit came.
All of those nations were icons of their time, indication of forthcoming demise was obvious but not acted on and its history, but the main thread is failed leaderships who once were worshipped.
Change of President will not do much unless wholesale changes are made in equality in both human rights and economic rights and that won’t happen in America as they are the most uneducated population in social infrastructure, actually third world in places which is a disgrace, but where money is god, and in fact god is money the racial divide without social conscious will hamstring any chance of America ever reestablishing itself on the world stage.
Greed is Good and that’s they’re poison they take daily and rewarded accordingly.
Austa La Vista and good night America.
I hope America proves me so wrong, ITS they’re challenge.
In my time in the corporate world I was always reminded by myself that I had to stick by the following when delivering and processing information.
1/ The word ASSUME is made up of the phrase :The word Assume Makes a ASS out of U and ME..
2/ A OPINION not supported by Data is just another opinion.
3/ There are THREE sides to every story . It’s That side , That side , Then the Truth.
So with that said I would like to express my opinion on the state of play as of today 10th January 2021 in American “politics” which is not really, better description is culture wars.
After the invasion of the countries house of democracy I can make observations of what I have read and see myself not from the the local MSM. During the attack foreign news reporters were on the ground within the crowd listening and reporting the mood and data shared by the participants.
It was pretty obvious Trump and his family knew exactly what was going to happen and when and he was actually giving direction to the leaders.
Video released from the bunker Trump was in had TV sets installed so he could view the proceedings and his family actually boasted it going live from the venue.
His twitter feed and his speeches well before the incident indicated a major incident was going to take place.
His denial after his twitter feed was suspended was strategic confirmed by his attempt to bypass it via POTUS account confirming his intention to carry on. ( In my news feed RT Today Russia was the first outlet to report the attempt). Twitter reacted again.
The attempt to go offshore when the Inauguration of Biden is taking place is a strategic decision to be away from the heat of another well planned attack on the State by his army.
Scotland denied him that access, but her will be looking for bunker to hide while the invasion in progress so he can return home in victory.
I would not put it past Morrison (Australia) or Netanyahu ( Israel ) to capitulate to his wishes.
With this in mind America cannot allow Trump travel privileges as the possibility of seeking asylum or agitation in exile cannot be overlooked,
Also escaping pending charges or outstanding debts would be in his thinking.
Trump does not have the mental capacity to plan this secondary coup he has had his generals within his family and people who will profit.
It will be completely clear if Trumps family has evacuated the ceremonial site the coup attempt is operational.
Im sure the CIA and security forces have their sources on high alert after Coup1 but Coup 2 may be averted if the Trump family is within the attack zone. They had no trouble in exposing the security staff to aggressive tactics so nothing to fear by being amongst the general public if nothing is going to occur.
In short The entire family should be put under house arrest until after the ceremony
These small measures should not be a problem if nothing is going to occur.. All Good eh Donny.
Sad it’s really got to this but my interest is driven by my PM’s lapdog approach to Trump in particular even though the Liberals have always been lapdogs to America but I feel a reset is coming.
The 25th Ammendment or Impeachment may occur but I feel the above measures must be in place regardless of congress timelines.
Saying “I told you so “ would be self fulfilling but then id be just like Trump wouldn’t I ?
The storming of any house of democracy I thought was a result of the people wanting the removal of a dictator, fascist, or tyrant of the people but yesterday it was the President turning his people on itself for self preservation.
Logic in my terms is not new as I’ve seen unionists turn on its own government to “Show them a Lesson” and as it happens most of those unionists ironically were sacked by the incoming government.
Yep dumb as dog shit, but that’s what happens when the masses get caught up by propaganda and forget to think for themselves. Group thought, lemmings, cattle to the crush and yesterday it was all of that and more.
The sad thing is they will never admit they have been conned, they will follow over the cliff procrastinating all the way to the rocks below.
I honestly believe all Americans are not dumb, think for themselves, intelligent people but the education system has failed so many in common citizenship and political awareness leaving it to media and in bred culture to play teacher, the it does not take much for a polished performer with a good spin to gather up the lost souls so they can fill their own wallets firstly and then become loyal customers of whatever that politician is selling.
In America its so easy as they have this magnificent vision you can be President knowing full well that’s a lie.
Individualist behaviour is the essence of keeping the masses under control and that has never been more evident when with their respect for each other when fighting covid. Keep them split and fighting, the power is left with the puppet masters. Trump played them to a treat.
Yesterday January 6 in America I saw heaps of older people storming but imbedded within those ranks were reporters from other nations news outlets watching and learning the culture and those reports are not what you will hear inside America outlets .
Military culture and speak, it’s all about a mission you see in a movie, Trump is a general, and let’s play out a fantasy that went real bad real quick and they should be thankful they were white or some of them would not be breathing today. In saying that I’d predict by the numbers as of today about 40% to 50% will have Covid within 2 weeks and they will be dead within a month.
Don’t be shocked, one person is dying every thirty seconds in America as we speak from covid alone and that event is a super spreader particularly with the age group I witnessed.
Im a observer not a player, I say shitty things some don’t want to hear but in my life and experience in politics I get red lights flashing a bit before only from experience of my failing to see the lights in my inexperience.
If America is to recover Biden is not the answer, nor is any one over 60 in either party. Trump must be made a example of the way never to put a narcissist in power, a paranoid psychopath, a pathological lier and like so many before not recognised until history reveals the true damage on departure.
If not America will loose it mantle of democracy title and reputation forever. The way it handles Trump in the next few days will determine more than just internal government it will influence foreign policy, trade, and wellbeing of its population as nation and the world will judge the risk of a reoccurring event of yesterday regardless of who is in power.
Its clusterF… self inflicted now how they fix it will need a strong leader and I think Harris is a contender.
Not the best I can remember but I won’t bore you with all the obvious disasters like fires, floods, viruses and the like, because if I believed in the educated I’m supposed to be dead.
We you fucked that one up so far anyway but the lungs are getting a little tattered but I’m still giving the wife the shits so I’m all good, and she’s still growling and assuming so I’m a goer.
Now let’s look at the world.
America has confirmed they are the biggest dickheads on the planet with covid management but thats ok they have their personal rights and that does not include social responsibility so its all about the individual and those rights are the backbone of their society and will be their death by self infliction.
Trump a total fuckwit and as the days go on it’s only exposing what the rest of the world knew days after his inauguration, and it was like a child denying they were caught with their hand in the jar and the grandparents making excuses for it so it didn’t get a flogging was the national denial.
It really boils down to the entire culture is based on a military mindset as that way it makes it simple to divided the troops by having good guys and bad guys and feeding the uneducated on both sides into following some sort of fairy dream of what America is supposed to be, meanwhile the rich just manipulate both sides in their capitalistic way feeding them cake.
Mark my words now , they will be stepping over bodies in the main streets by mid year, the system will collapse and possible civil unrest will explode encouraged by the Trump army. The stage is set months ago the bomb ticking.
Meanwhile China and Russia are laughing and stoking the fires and until America elects a younger FEMALE PRESIDENT some sense of normality will resume however I see trouble as their as big guns, little dicks and interbreeding is across their society not allowing any form on intellectual capital to get traction.
Enough of America, home here is in kayos with a PM with the intellectual capacity of road kill and followed by a legion of zombies in blue ties.
Lies and corruption are rampant as the born to rule class supported by the Murdock Press is trashing democracy as the numb nut punters just don’t care. Fertile ground for racists facist policy unbeknown until it’s too late.
Im convinced education and common logic don’t grow in the same garden.
And yes a FEMALE PM is required to restore some sense of balance needed to steer our country into life after covid. Testosterone has had its day and oestrogen is required world wide and that proven fact where they are elected to high office.
Locally our little society is getting older but closer due to covid. Bullshit prevails and honest talking and respect keeps us in tact.
Well its time I went to the shop to get the bread for the sausage sizzle at tonight’s New Years eve party next door, of which we we will be in bed before the time but wine will prevail keeping the local industry well supported, discussions will be had, and 2021 will arrive without our help and we are blessed we are still here thanks to our strong FEMALE Premier Anastasia P and I hope we will be still here keeping the virus out of Queensland .
AND I won’t talk about the English as again until the Fuckwitts realise personal discipline is the only thing that will beat covid they to will be4 stepping over bodies in the streets.
Well it was a shit of a year so I was not going out not calling it as I see it …
On the last day of October 2020 was also the last day of a good friend and college, taken by mesothelioma.
It was not a plesent experience for the relatives and people who knew the journey but in the end it was a relief to those knowing the pain and discomfort of the patent.
A story we probably we have all heard before but is close to me and my wife.
Mick (Sweep) and I both are boilermakers, both worked the Evens Deakin shipyard, and both apprentices to that organisation and did the same work. I won’t go into the exposure to asbestos but it was extreme and we both did it without any knowledge of the consequences.
Mick got mesothelioma, I got asbestosis.
Why we were effected differently is in the hands of the medicos for explanation but it certainly makes you think how precious a day is.
But in retrospect we had a great apprenticeship. The best we felt, working and being taught by some true tradesman. No shortcuts, no inaccuracies, it was a culture where you were judged on your product you produced, be it a bracket, a stringer, or a shell plate. Each and every welding run you put down had to be as close to perfect as you can and that standard was adopted by about 98% of the lads and those who failed the mark were really did not last.
The benchmark was set by the Master.
Our Master was Slam Sullivan. No one knew his real first name. A mountain of a man with hands as big as frying pans that you were never silly enough to smart mouth.
That 2% I spoke about was weeded out and addressed often by a smack in the ear or if required a back hander to convince you to consider your attitude to the job.
Oh yes I can hear the cries of violence to the youth but it was mans trade then and you grew up or did not survive. No mummy’s boys, no crying to the big boss as you would be regarded as a wimp
Slam worked on the Story Bridge a time where accuracy was demanded and his experiences and standards were passed on and to his credit turend out tradesmen that were welcomed once knowing your shipyard training in other factories in any other facets of the boiler-making trade.
Mick stuck with the trade his whole life, I divested after about 10 years and went to PMG, Telecom, and Telstra, but did not escape the asbestos exposure as the pits and conduits.
Again though, part of our training was life experiences few experienced.
The years was a melting pot of cultures. Walking distance from Yungabah hostel the landing point of New Australians arriving and having a job almost immediately if you had experience in any part of the shipbuilding industry.
Every day was a learning experience, be it trade or life working alongside of people who were too learning about our culture and us theirs.
Yes the lingo was in todays terms racist and unacceptable but it was common language then yet those of us who really wanted to know how the rest of the world worked it was an open book, in a time in the late 60”s where everything was being challenged from culture, working conditions, life styles, music ,everything that represented authorities including governments.
Some great discussions, ideas and arguments and at time fights but looking back a great base for me that you could never experience in a class room or office job and we had it on tap.
This could be a sad story but I won’t allow it.
Although we both got some shit disease unknowingly we did have some experiences in our youth that would never pass the occupation health and safety standards today and both of us would probably be in jail if we did to each other what was did then.
Setting little traps with welders, tools ,electricity, acetylene and whatever we could invent to get a laugh or get square was all part of learning a trade and character building, and that experiences carry us through life and give us sometimes a different view of life few can accept at times.
To be honest it took years for Mick and me to realise we both worked at the yard as there was about 200 of us covering many trades so we played golf against each other misbehaved accordingly and as age does we did not recognise each other in that light until one afternoon the penny dropped when is saw Mick walk into the clubhouse dressed in his work gear and I said boilermaker, then it all fell into pace, the toolbox was opened and it we started swinging the 4 pound hammer of our youth, driving in the wedges and dogs of the past
He remains in my mind a true tradesman full stop. He stayed and practiced the game to the end and I hope he passed on his standards to his subordinates in trade but I’m pretty sure he passed them on family in another forms and they will live with them.
His legacy remains in many ways.
Thanks for the memories old mate and meet you at the lunch room for the game of 500 with the big school.
The question the corporate sector and its supporters are is driving knowing full well that not all people are able to access hospitals, doctors or any medical treatment.
Not in this country I hear you say, well all can say is get off your arse and look what’s happening in your highly populated areas, look at the food barns, charity shops, and I know from hard experience that lady or man you see in a shopping centre or public that looks reasonably presented may well be living on the street or park somewhere.
I’ve witnessed it in my time at delivering clothes, sanitary products or whatever people donate to the less fortunate.
And No I don’t expect the “ entitled” supporters to even think that occurs in their bubble, it’s all about “them” look at me I’m loosing money, poor me, I’ll employ a lobbyist or mouthpiece look for self pity, and yes mental health and suicidal issues happen in the lower demographic and there are more of the but not as entitled.
They don’t count.
For a moment let me take you to the once leader of the free world and with a kill rate of over 250k plus the ones they never make the data sheet and the grand tactic of bullying with the $$buck and tactical trade tariffs is working and the strategy of using money is a total disaster externally as the likes of China , Iran and whoever just don’t care but it’s ripping apart the American people as they are paying through the nose for stuff the need to survive while the suppliers just look for other clients and gradually set up their own manufacturing factories to eventually starve America of its export.
Money is irrelevant to the likes of China and others as its people and economy will thrive after a little short term shortages.
The capitalist system is in decline across the world as people realise you can’t eat money and as countries are plunged into this debt mentality someone will wake up and well it’s time to put our people, our biggest asset to the front and so what, if we reset our economy with our people a priority we’ll rise and flourish.
Let them eat money and choke, and that what is happening as people will realise that you and your family are just as important if not more than that conglomerate where you are a expendable throw away when it suits.
Covid has bought these issues to the fore, people must think is loosing my parents or children worth someone else’s wealth gain, or will we look at controlling the stream until a vaccine or preventative measures can protect or will we be collateral damage, cattle in the crush, so the wealthy can make a buck and give you the crumbs of which you should be thankful ?
To many this idea of being a socialist is some kind of demonology where the government You elect is accountable to the people not the corporate parasites in blue ties and suits. Yes they are getting their slings, to keep them in office on both sides of the political divide but I believe this Covid has made us question the establishment and we all should look to appointing genuine leaders who look to the little man and women, the battler, the street kid, the police officer, ambo, nurse, truckie, health worker, as without them your corporate blue tie is nothing more than a arse wipe when theirs nothing left to manipulate with your stash.
Oh yes, to those who see division is a political weapon, history has a lesson for you ask Hitler, Mussolini, Gaddafi, of which were evil yet their policies appear in forms in so called freedom right wing nationalist associations.. be aware and don’t get you news from social media, trust real journalists not the talking heads of toxicity.
Since 1982 I have supported the QT well before I moved in in 83. I have seen some truly great journalism, and watched many rise through the ranks to apply their trade here and in other outlets.
And yes we’ve seen some imposters blow in, one in particular but overall we were blessed with professionals delivering our copy to a outstanding standard.
Me, I put my 2bobs worth in via Letters and provided some banter to keep some in fits and others in anger management, but it kept the local political players thinking that someone was watching outside the media.
Sadly once APN was annexed by Murdock it was inevitable the toxicity would eventually eat the once strong respected masthead and try to Trojan horse on its history.
Well it’s failed, failed in Trumps in fact and that’s no reflection on who has been spared to cover what remains of so called “local News” They have to survive and my heart feels for them genuinely as they knew what we had and now defending the indefensible must be exhausting.
I won’t give oxygen to the product they produce now but it’s not local journalism, it’s a moving mush of mediocrity to be kind, and having it appear and presented under the Queensland Times Masthead is a total disservice to the history and journalistic forefathers of such a great entity.
Murdock has mongrelised journalism with toxic bias and is no longer a newspaper but a bias blue tie newsletter and it’s classification as a “News” outlet must be challenged in a court along with it monopolies that have been allowed to develop in the name of democracy, or we will be no better that a state under propaganda as was Germany.
Yes I’ve signed Rudd’s petition but and so should you if you care, but things will not change unless Morrison and his thugs are gone as Murdock is being paid by us taxpayers to keep him in office and to me that’s no better than any fascist state trick used by dictatorships who have crushed unfavourable media across the world.
Firstly there will be a language and concept alert so in true Queenslanders way you’ve been told so that’s it.
I was bought up in the 50 ‘S and from the day I started school we were always lead to believer the southern states of Australia were well ahead of us people who lived in the north.
Better schools and education, better sports people, better beaches and better cities were all shoved down our throats and they were the benchmarks we had to hit.
As we grew so did our state and after a while we realised that NSW and Victoria were like two male Peacocks prancing around in full garb while Queensland, South Australia, and NT did not participate in this petty game of infantile one upmanship but the populations involved took this culture seriously to our amusement but we understood that if our sportspeople wanted to get a Australian spot in any sport they had to break the Southern culture which meant migrating.
Yes sport is a big thing in Queensland, it’s a underlying force, and we were belted often by our own talent in many sports and told how bad we were by the southern media.
We never forgot that, year after year we were disciplined enough to cop it and worked away slowly to balance the books.
That determination over time became our DNA, something the southerners will never understand to this day and only see it as a chip on the shoulder.
That QDNA is passed down, similar to the Scottish, the Irish, the Welsh hold their individually nationally we hold state wide and it becomes a culture of looking after each other, some could call it defensive or victim mentality.
Whatever it is the southerners don’t get it, and it translates across their actions in so many ways.
The Southern Peacock Mentality (SPM) emerges in so many ways when it comes to southern culture and no better barometer is the their sporting hero’s air of arrogance when it comes to discipline.
The NSW NRL, the states icon game , management and players caught continually breaking rules, be it salary caps, drug offences, DV , street violence, all just part of life as accepted practice that deserves a slap on the wrist, naughty little boys and the AFL is no better and we ask ourselves and they have the audacity to call themselves professionals. Any other codes, with infringements at that level those players and officials would be banned for life for bringing the code into disrepute.
No worries there that make their own rules don’t they ?
So, now let’s look to the present. The COVID-19 and the comparisons of how the states have managed their populations and you find it nearly fits the way they have handled their sporting icons.
Ruby Princess, the toxic capsule our nation prescribed by inept management, blame allocation, excuses, then slow reaction causing national pandemic conditions, a situation that was forewarned to our PM and ignored, but provisions were put in place in Queensland before any public body moved and when the passengers arrived they were immediately taken out of circulation. NSW sat on their hands and the horse bolted.
Queenslanders were informed and responded, the southern populations questioned and hesitated and analysed the money impact and not the health implications, and history is playing out now and playing catch up with that horse that has not only bolted but has time to breed.
If you look at the nations that have contained the virus they are the ones with inbred national pride for each other similar to QDNA discipline and the ones that have failed the test are the SPM’s . The self centered populations who fail to understand we all have work to beat the demons yet they are the ones along with their political stooges want us, those who stand strong, to be weak like them.
Our borders are strong, you will comply or fuck off back down south and join peacocks but I truly feel sorry for those who have the discipline to comply in the southern states and they watch the parasites destroy their safety, it’s hard to understand their intellect until you realise the have none other then self interest.
And yes over time Queensland will have clusters and more deaths, and at 70 I’ll probably be a target but I’m proud to be QDNA and me and my real Queenslanders will not be bullied any more by the southern parasites and peacocks ever again.
To Breath easy , vote Annastacia,or the alternative and become a statistic.
It’s like watching a train crash knowing the people on it are going to die.
Such is America today.
We are seeing two old men possible geriatric who should be on nursing homes fighting each other’s ideology’s for a chance to pick over a dying carcass that cannot be revived until it reaches flat bottom.
Only when it reaches bottom will the entire nation realise “Shit we may all have to work at this together to get out of this “ a philosophy usually used after a war, a national tragedy, that requires nation building.
I know I’m dreaming, it ant going to happen. This America version we have now is a pack of self centred wanna be individual capitalists who would crawl over their grandparents dead bodies to make a buck or be successful. Empathy or ethics is not a requirement to achieve that goal but the lack of them justifies the goal at all costs.
It’s the American dream , wealth and fortune will always prevail over truth and justice, and that’s not racists it’s applies to all citizens and accepted as part of life….Until some section of the society burrs up and then it will be regarded as enemy of the state, regardless of which Marfia is in government at the time.
I used to despair watching Fox ,CNN, and others until I realised to accept these divisions only adds to the problem and does nothing for the nation other than increases the ratings along with the hate factor.
Dumb as Dog Shit in Australian terms along with the fanatics they the media create. The oldest trick in the book is splitting the nation, used by despots like Hitler, Mussolini, Starlin in propaganda blitzes to convert a nation to dictatorships. That’s fact and it’s happening as we speak in America now.
They say democracy is a great vehicle to gain power because after your in power it’s easy to get off and then follow self interest of survival and ideology.
If you can’t see that happening in America right now your brain dead, but I suppose with a population of 5% still believing the earth is flat, the entire population of Australia count in Australia illiterate or to the equivalent of not passing primary school you can’t expect lateral thinking at any level let alone critical thinking.
The national policy of keep them dumb and feed the bullshit and tell them it’s cake is alive and well.
A nation that willingly sacrifices their youth in was that only makes the wealthiest wealthy for a flag and sympathy for a month, what sort of a nation tolerates that without question says a lot for the National IQ.
I can hear the cries now, you don’t know our culture, or our constitution, and I probably know as much or more than joe citizen without having to be told by some politician, and by the way how many countries has America forced its influence upon them without any regard to its citizens?
Getting back to the Geriatric Giants struggling to stay relevant, one struggling to fight off the ageing process that might be able to be hid if office is won the other with a literary level of a schoolchild, a typical little rich boy with no empathy or moral boundaries and a pathological liar which qualities fit exactly into the all American persona of success, artfully disguised as man of the street for the masses.
What a fucking choice!!!!
They will pick one flunky, the result will only change the trajectory of the crash, Trump will not accept any result other the his so regardless the choices are a nation that the rest of the world will abandon until the realisation that since he,Trump, has taken office the world is making its own arrangements without America, it’s capitalism threats and influence will kill its rural sectors and manufacturing so it will be selling to itself…. DER Donald and China doesn’t care about your infantile tariffs it’s source elsewhere or make it themselves.
Now Biden,,, well civil war begs and total breakdown of civil authorities. Wars within states, within communities, races, religions, encouraged by Trump in fact probably sponsored.
Even if Biden is elected the divide will not be addressed unless it becomes a total land slide and even if that happens their constitutional arrangements can manipulate the people’s will via bias courts or lawmakers, making democracy a joke by giving way to political puppets of corrupt capitalists.
It would be totally ignorant and self indulgent if I did not say Australia is not going down the same track about 3 years behind but suffering the same symptoms under the Morrison government. Every time Trump farts Morrison takes deep breaths and spills the bile here.
Our phoney PM is nothing more than a used car salesmen, full of slogans and motherhood statements without substance.
A buy a car with a free bumper bar, about sums up his leadership skills.
And our Opposition, not clear on how they know how cut the mustard trying to walk the middle ground or find the middle ground, that is if the middle ground is where the party wants to position itself for some sort of traction.
In both countries Murdock Press is the toxic cancer to any form of democracy, and until that cancer is defeated true democracy will never prevail. Until we have journalism that hold every politician to account regardless of ideology we will never be more than pawns of the loudest voice, which makes it easy for the ignorant and ill informed, conspiracies and all. Those splits suits the empowered and takes the heat off the incompetence in responsible government.
It’s all a game and you are the sucker, if YOU choose.
Sad but quite foreseeable unfortunately, as we sit back and watch those trains get closer in America and it’s a test if the points are changed on Australia’s tracks.
