Wealth over Health… ?

That’s the question isn’t it ?

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.

Queenslanders DNA runs Deep.

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.

A Unconventional Observation

One can’t avoid the unabridged extravagance of the political party’s in America in a time where their people are dying in thousands daily, millions out of work, typhoons devastating parts of the nation, and racial civil unrest at boiling point, and all the leaders focus is on showing who is winning the TV ratings.

The rationality of county and people first is non existent, it’s politics first, and having god on there side.

Apparently good people ?

America has and probably will always have the ethos of the The End always justifies the Means” be it politics, or the great American dream and its celebrated, selectively ignoring who or what was collateral damage getting to the top, and woe behold anybody who reminds or remembers those who have been unfortunate enough to be road kill on that journey to greatness.

To an outsider, an Australian, one who has a social conscience helps me draw comparisons between cultures with sometimes stark.

My country is no way pristine perfect, in fact it has dark history never spoken about, denied and obnoxious by those who choose to project or history as a colonial masterpiece.

Sound familiar? America had the same colonial founding, genocided their indigenous races, and destroyed any evidence of that holocaust,in fact celebrated it, and continued to do so. Australia exactly the same.

Now seeing the similarities of those who celebrate and profit, to those who choose to repair and build is remarkably the way the political parties philosophy’s line up in both nations.

All of the contenders espouse to be “The People’s Party” but that definition is absolute bullshit when you look at who sponsors the puppets they put in leather.

You all know what comes next so I won’t bore you with my left leaning opinions on political donations corrupting our governments on a daily basis, and why that influence must be diluted if a democracy is to be truly experienced by and for the people they “espouse” their party’s represent.

There is no doubt the world will go into a capitalist lead depression after the COVID-19 repercussion OR governments can adopt a people based economy where citizens well-being are put before the corporate monopoly’s.

If the latter is a option the corporate neoliberals will open the coffers with a onslaught of propaganda of tales of socialism, lawlessness, scare tactics similar to the present spin taking place in the lead up American election as we speak.

We cannot leave out the conspiracy sector that caters for the blissfully ignorant. Fuelled by boogie man stories many have not grown up from their bedtime stories as it’s often fits their IQ of batshit crazy.

Yes, media love their stupidity as it gives them a cheap headline and surprise , surprise the majority of it printed in the Murdock press.

I won’t start there today either as the less oxygen they get the better we all are

Trump Armorers making ready

In closing Trump has just finished his acceptance speech and to me without dissecting every word he said, the set he is standing on, the tone of the moment reminds me of a call to arms I’ve seen under the early Hitler movement. Bias no, recognising history could be repeating …. guilty ..

The Dog is Off, Sabbatical Over.

Since my local newspaper got the chop for Murdock I’ve had a bit of a rest from writing as I was a contributor to opinion writing in Letters to Editor and other little tasks to prompt thought outside the main stream media.

That break also give me time to rethink my sources of news and the way to get bio the meat of a story without the bullshit, hence I have moved away from TV and gone directly to radio, a once critical part of my upbringing.

Radio National ABC , along with my internet sources complete my morning intake locally and world wide give some a broad news without the need for personality opinion disguised as news.

My first issue of distain is the way our government is handling this #China syndrome of scare.

One of our biggest traders , clients China is vital to our industry especially our agriculture and food chains and the fact that America is having issues done not mean we have to play lap dog, even though our PM is mimicking every move #Trump does to appease.

Its obvious #Morrison is not a lateral thinker and playing bum boy to power is the way he has got the top job even though he won the election he never wanted to win is obviously agonising on having to use a socialistic principals to keep the nation afloat during the pandemic, actions that are at odds with is radical right wingers who see capitalism must survive at all costs, again mirroring Trump.

You will also notice his ability to play the leader of the national cabinet when decisions are made then send in his snipers to attack those decisions. A gutless act from a man who run away from responsibility in the bush fires, attacked premiers in the early stages of the pandemic for implementing safety measures to protect and play the political states game of blame, right down to the incompetence in the age care areas.

A leader he is not, a shady used car salesmen is more to his calling, and when it comes to accountability he hides under a rock along with his stooges, who under the Westminster Government rules should stand aside at least until incompetence or corruption is disproved.

Not under Morrison who regard it badge of honour, a right to use your public office to increase personal wealth directly or indirectly.

So will the Opposition do a better job?

Coming out of this pandemic will be a tough job regardless and we as a nation will need compassion as depending on the outcome in America will set the course for at what rate that recovery will take.

Its obvious now that Europe, China and Asia have parked up and are in wait and the isolationist policy’s of Trump will be trigger for the block to let America drown in its own sewerage if stays on Trumps present agenda.

That leaves Australia, NZ., Japan, Indonesia, block possibly increasing trade opportunities and that not leaving China out either..

That will test any government in the wake of a possible depression.

Anyway that decision is in the hands of the American people come November as it has the voice to stay in track and have a head on with itself, or take a side track before collision and run out of rail.

What a choice, delusional old men trying to stay relevant regardless of which party you vote or not.

Sadly until some vision from the younger Americans is given a chance America will not avoid a calamity that emulates Hiroshima and Nagasaki without the bomb, on a larger scale all self inflicted.

Expendable Me.

As we speak some we have we are informed that thousands of Victorians are refusing to be tested for COVID-19 believing the conspiracy I won’t repeat because of utterly ridiculous theories beyond belief.

This culture of stupidity will spread the virus intentionally and me being in the vulnerable age group and having “other” issues will die if I contact the disease, full stop.

But it’s not only those in Victoria or NSW or anywhere in fact it’s our political hawks who have decided the virus is now part of our life we are going to have to live with and may as well just open up and get on with making our economy great again, and it’s up to you to survive, and in the right age group.

At the front end of this crisis we were told it’s the elderly and those compromised with health issues will be in the most vulnerable, that warning has been conveniently forgotten by our Prime Minister as he continues to play his smirking game of wedge politics with the state leaders to get his silver tail mates back in favour.

We oldies are now collateral damage to the capitalistic ambitions of the LNP and should just concede we have had our time run our race and die for the country’s well being, to keep the businesses back making profits.

One thing is for sure, we will go first unless we stay in hibernation forever, so we have to accept that fact and maybe the herd immunity theory, similar to the conspiracy theories will keep the younger population eventually protected after a significant genocidal experiment in the name of economic prosperity.

Yes there is a solution but I thought we were a intelligent race here in Australia but the Victorians are revealing we suffer from “Fuckwittery” at a level that could be just as contagious as COVID-19 amongst the population that cannot come to terms of for once in their lives they are not in control, and maybe we could just get all of the dumb arses parked up together and see if their theories are correct and it’s only them it effects.

They wouldn’t last a week before they,d have another conspiracy about the conspiracy.

America, on the Highway to Hell. (Opinion)

Daily we on the outside can watch the antics of the politicians, the media, the cross cultural reactions and responses portrayed on whatever slanted media you want to suit your view.

It’s more interesting to go outside America to view the coverage of truly international sources and see non partisan journalism analyse and deliver copy without the complications of sponsors withdrawing funds from a network for example.

Such is America, every facet of their society having to facilitate their existence by sponsorship of some kind. Health, Politicians, law enforcement, education, Judges, States, their entire existence built on a capitalistic system which once served them well, now is being used as a weapon against its people and health.

Also, the ingrained culture of individualism, my rights, my freedoms, me,me me,the great American dream crawling over everyone and everything regardless of any ethics is admired, worshipped in fact, a culture that is vividly displayed in its discipline against Covid-19.

I’ll make it quite clear I have no, REPEAT NO time or respect for Trump or Biden, both in my mind are dangerous to the health of the nation in these times of absolute turmoil the nation is suffering, so much so it like selecting the bullet or the needle on which way you chose to die. Both senile old men, portraying they have the silver bullet to save America from it demise. Even if they change in November nothing will change the corrupt system of divide and conquer.

The saddest thing in fact is the people have no idea how a government for the people really works, and have been conditioned for that to be some sort of leftist communist plot, dumbed down by both sides to keep their arses in leather. Free medical, hospitalisation, and medications, the basic need for a population to survive in the richest country in the world (That’s America’s own Propaganda Spin) could be done but for the influence of big profit making companies who are sponsoring the politicians who are on the take openly accepting cash to keep the status quo.

Just imagine a Crime and Corruption investigation as in Australia into American politicians across the nation. Where would you start? They would have to build new jails first.

To the present, between now and November it’s my assumptions of what May evolve into certain scenarios

.1 Trump will ramp up the pressure so the blacks will not be able to turn out to vote.

2 In a short time Trump will activate his Cult to counteract public discourse and you will have civil conflict elevated to a point of war, a survival tactic for him, and I think the politicians will be too scared to act.

3 Covid 19 in the background will kill over a 2 million Americans and it will happen quicker as he will downplay its spread as political democratic plot.

4 Biden will loose and a political vacuum will be created as Germany where any opposition to government and media will be outlawed and rule by declaration will apply, and the politicians will be too scared to act.

5 Biden wins and by the time it takes to re invent the new administration, settle the riots of the Trump Cult, and Lefties, and then Covid 19 is out of control and looking at 3million deaths he will declare a national state of emergency and have to have troops on the street, and it goes on from there.

A failed state, with a government structure that cannot facilitate any resurrection and to be quite honest will have to hit the absolute bottom, and then and only then will it be able to make America great again, but in a totally different way where it’s people are it’s biggest asset not it’s dollars.

In world terms, while all this unrest is taking place the world has bypassed Trump and is making its own arrangements, and again the people are blindsided by his hat logo.. as did Hitler with his logo and I might add it’s amazing Trump has declared ANTIFA a terrorist organisation..

History Lesson, check Google, ANTIFA (ANTI FASCIST) was formed in the 1930’s to fight against Mussolini, Hitler, and other fascists despots and being them to justice internationally. Used by America in the Nuremberg trials, and is ongoing around the world so its clear Trump and his media support fascism, America style, obviously, and that should make that public.

In saying that, the parasites that are doing the looting and burning need to be identified, and charged. There agenda is anarchy, which is a right wing cause if history serves me correct, (English riots as we speak) but can be both.

And I hope I’m wrong… so wrong and be pleased to eat humble pie.

With red wine of course !!!!

Keep the Electric Fence on our Boarders.

In these different times to some and others indifferent my observations of my fellow humans is becoming frustrating to say the least.

A visit to my local bakery and on arrival all customers were observing the distance markers and progressing in a respectful fashion and in walks a lady with a kid past people waiting outside and both totally ignorant of others protocols.

Before full lockdown was declared we had the grey nomads in their vans rat running at night to avoid the government requests to stay put in their parks and police, so age is not a benchmark for stupidity levels.

New Zealand has recognised Queensland’s effort as a world standard and prepared to enter a travel bubble, irking those states with lower performance rates to try and drag us down by opening the borders and us to their failed government decisions like the Ruby Princess.

It’s quite obvious the federal government like Trump see business first and lives second and is playing classic wedge politics, supported by its slanted media outlets to spin its dollar driven agenda.

We Queenslanders have done the hard yards well before the Federal Government and the other states penny dropped and yes the capitalistic system has failed and we have fallen into the socialistic safety net, truly irking those who think their world of everything has a price, and lives are part of that price.

Ipswich’s Village Idiot Embarrasses.

Well every village has one (Idiot) but ours is National

In not sure if it’s flipping or flopping day or both but for a politician who states she stands up for the little man and women chooses go against a State Premier who is standing up for the health and well-being of Queenslanders is advocating the States right protect it sovereignty and its borders be overrun to appease southerners who have failed to reach our standards.

It’s well known Hanson talks the talk but fails to walk the walk and when it comes to workers, disabled, unemployed, disadvantaged now health she follows her true form for of voting with the government over 90% of the time abandoning them.

Her China bash appeals to those Trump like tribe forgetting that our farmers, cattlemen, food exporters will cease to exist but it sounds patriotic playing to her deranged base of flag wavers or old men living in the past.

One can be certain, she is never short of stunts to try and justify her political survival and gather her electoral refund, but entering into this COVID-19 debate is well out of her depth as this is not politics it’s lives at stake, and as a former businessman I empathise with that sector but like the exporters who put billions of dollars into our economy know no customers dead or alive means no business anyway. No flipping or flopping there.

Reevaluate our Perspective on Trade Now.

I’m not sure if the penny has dropped yet for some who think if we stop trading with China how our farmers, beef producers, and now coal miners will be able to keep their businesses operating.

We over produce for our own population that’s why our export market is critical, and the simple fact we have the reputation of being America’s Deputy Sheriff has bought us into the firing line in Trumps Trade war with the dragon.

For too long our politicians have portrayed Australia as a big player and our exports are critical to other countries economy, a fallacy that is being played out as we speak and reality is globalisation is redundant ought forward by the virus.

We have a great product no doubt, but like in every business we need customers and if you upset them you go broke and having politicians promoting this crazy go it alone philosophy are promoting their own profiles to the flag waving gullible as Trump relies on to keep him in headlines.

We need intelligent, respectful, dialog delivered by competent knowledgeable representatives negotiating in our national interest as our major alliance partner USA has filled the void immediately supplying produce we have been priced out in their their new trade agreement with China, that’s business, no mates there.

I think it’s now time re-examine our trade position, and economic viability by spreading the risk and re start manufacturing and research and development sectors totally ignored and defunded by this government in favour of export priority, a decision that is being proven a total failure and made us vulnerable like never before.

Lazy Journalism, Lazy Thinkers.

It’s easy when your confined to spaces to adopt the easy convenient way to get your daily dose of whatever and has the potential to make you a lazy thinker.

It times such as this it’s the media, the information hub, should be out their delivering broad expansive reporting on issues that are impacting on our new way of life but it’s just not happening.

Our news is becoming narrower and repetitive especially within our nation and like in America where the trend is playing one state against another to make news, to make controversy, create sides, to manipulate conversations and interviews to look for the sound bite to start the next cycle of cynicism.

Like many at my age TV ,radio, are the prominent deliverers of doom nowadays and we are turning off I believe. Once balanced reporting was a ethical requirement, now it’s a treasure as some of us wish to make up our own minds instead of being told what to think.

I frequent news outlets worldwide without political bias to get perspective on important stories and when returning to home the political spin is easily identifiable, something you miss by remaining in the news bubble.

It’s important for us to explore information or we will end up dumbed down as a population, fertile ground for the peddling of conspiracies and falsehoods and that can start with good honest hard hitting journalists that hold their ground in the scrum and persist without fear of reprisal in any form.
