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 !!!!

My Experience on Black Lives Matter.

As a boomer from the 50’s I’ve seen or at times participated in rallies or change events and of late observed as we have moved in time but not always in social change.

I recall vividly in my childhood how our Aboriginals were regarded as a underclass in school and socially, not my parents view totally but it was important to be seen as just fitting in with societies views at that time.

In saying that my grandfather who was of dubitable heritage of multicultural bloodline nicknamed “Darkie” because of his dark sometimes black skin, had Im told many a confrontation with caucasians who thought he may have been aboriginal, often to their detriment physically. I witnessed a few wise cracks unknowingly at the time and learned his reputation later in life, not only as a fighter against racism but a fighter against all forms of discrimination via the Waterside Workers Federation.

At school aboriginal history was totally erased and British Colonialist culture was the curriculum, and a form of silent hate was projected as aboriginal kids did not have to attend school magnifying the black white divide.

When visiting my country relatives, I could not understand the rhetoric of the adults towards the “Boongs” as referenced but I did take it in as any kid does when you don’t understand at the time.

Life went on and it wasn’t until Cath Walker a not so famous then but Annerley local started getting press and then the conversation escalated through the community about Aboriginal rights , Bjelke Peterson versions and then it started to roll, Sam Watson, Lilla Watson, Nev Bonner, just come to mind but many more.

High school finished at 15 and to be honest I don’t recall any Aboriginal kid attending but I do recall vividly Ian King, a guy from the Gabba Police Youth Club kid who was the quickest bowler I’ve ever faced and had the best arm I’ve ever seen come to cricket training. His nickname “Rainbow”. The kids idolised him I recall and he didn’t coach to much but his presence was awesome to many.

Enter apprenticeship ShipYard and then my little world at Ekibin exploded. Multicultural was a requirement to survive, tradesmen from all over the world, all levels of society were a everyday event. Stories from the War, world conflicts, invasions, religious clashes, things never discussed in our family circle were all a every day experience at lunch times, or on job conversations, which at times amazed me why I was so naive to actual human existence elsewhere on the planet.

The trade union movement bought all those together and although the brought baggage from their lives when the met a former foe, they had to unite and that in itself healed many, but they never forgot within themselves.

Me, I came across many that helped me understand life outside family and was hard to explain to those who were in their Australian bubble and were content, but what I did discover the difference of how migrants regarded our Aboriginals oversaw we regarded them.

Many had been where the Aboriginal was/is and were not backward when we colonials behaved badly towards them. They were more compassionate than us Australians by far. Another Learning curve for me. AND that was in the late 60’s

As life went on and being a sport junkie I witnessed the Elly Bennet aftermath at the yard and watched boxers like Rose, Mundine, and lower fighters on the cards use their skills in the ring often to be ripped off by managers and discarded when they fell out of favour losing them to alcohol or worse, while white fighters we’re “looked After” better even if they did not reach the same heights of accomplishment.

That really irked by sporting ethics, probably more than my moral ethos at the time.

My career moved and I completed my apprenticeship and shifted workplaces practicing my trade still in Brisbane until industrial warfare forced me to change direction and I went off driving cabs and working at the Brisbane Markets both hotbeds of racial appreciation, while the whole time playing or coaching football with overseas players abundant, but it wasn’t until I became a manager with Telstra did it hit home again the divide between Australians on indigenous affairs.

My earlier years with the company was in the inner city and then to developing suburbs like Woodridge, Kingston, Rochdale, Eight Mile Plains, with a lower demographic, exacerbated intolerance and being in the business of communications we were in the kitchen literally and physically.

My movement the South East Queensland Manager give me an area from Walloon to the NT border as high as Birdsville and into Northern NSW. a fair track and a big classroom for me when it come to indigenous customs and affairs.

I had the honour of having some great teachers, mainly staff members of both cultures with heaps of experience briefing me or boxing my ears when needed. A experience that will last my lifetime.

Now looking at this present Black Lives Matter and looking back at where I was made aware progress has been made but its been a fight for little progress really. Politicians of all colours have failed but I am from the Labor side and that party had tried harder I believe to bridge the gap but no where near where we have to go to reach some sort of parity.

Im nearly 70, still with a a bit of sting mainly in kicking political heads via keyboard now and we need youth to stand up as we did in the 60’s and 70’s and 80’s to right some wrongs but I fear the banks and financial institutions have them by the short and curlies and their sacred to stand up, unlike us where we had nothing to loose so fight we had to do.

Well some of is did, whole others freeloaded and then and still now while living on their union fought Superannuation, sick pay, pensions, medicare, yet still won’t support a fair go for all .

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.

Raelene Castle’s Professionalisms To High for the White Ants.

Well the old boys club of rugby will be back slapping over their glass of port and a cigar in the men’s club around the country.

They got their scalp. Who in their right mind would put a women in a position, a New Zealand women in charge even though the game was In free fall before she come to the desk.

Not only that the club did a Gillard on her, lambasting her personal appearance disregarding he medical condition, the lowest one can go but it didn’t deter the commentators all with their own agendas of keeping power in the halls of power in NSW and keeping their jobs on Fox.

So what did she do wrong? She stood up against discrimination, she stood up for a competitive broadcasting terms, and with limited funds attempted to get the second tier competitive, but not good enough.

This is not about Australian Rugby progressing it’s about power and be assured the Fox Commentators, the ones that white anted her continually will just happen to get the leather seats and head in the trough.

No wonder Australian sport fails internationally, we think we have all the answers, but we read our own press and believe it, and if anyone points that out their regarded some sort of traitor.

We are the laughing stock of the professionals overseas, because we don’t behave like professionals because it’s too hard for us to accept that because you won once does not make you a authority on all knowledge, that knowledge on the field and off.

Mrs Castle is a professional and standing down and her exit demonstrated that to us who appreciate the heat in the kitchen will leave with a credible history, one that none of the misogynistic contenders has and never will.

Let’s be The Adults and Not Play The Blame Game.

Like on the farm you just have to accept animals do what they do as part of life. In politics it’s the same. 

In a world that is in kayos, millions being infected and death now accepted as  the norm, some of our illustrious leaders are looking for blame. 

Waisting  vital political oxygen on it where the focus should be on survival of their citizens shows they just can’t get away from their own personal politics of political survival first. 

There will be plenty of time later to do the risk assessments and cause and effect processes but now it’s time  leadership and bi partisan behaviour at the highest level. The infantile behaviour of Trump trying to deflect his incompetence mirrors a Romper Room episode gone bad, yet it seems our government wants to join his sandpit as a show of lapdog solidarity. 

We should stand with the adults in the room and get on with sticking process that so far is saving lives but this movement by our foreign minister sends the cynics a clear message that we may follow America in trading our standards of protection off for capital gain regardless of lives lost. 

We are a intelligent race us Aussies so let’s not get ahead of the game, beat the virus first then rebuild our economy and social structures with zest from the bottom up.

Let’s Lead and not Follow.

This Pandemic has it’s Lessons

It’s widely agreed the coved-19 does not respect international boundaries or social statuses. Rich or poor it takes no prisoners however this pandemic has exposed the massive disparity between the demographics of our society.

It’s undeniable now our country’s working class is not what our Government spun when it come to employment figures particularly what it regarded as employed even if you only had a couple of hours daily or even weekly.

In the education debate we are seeing the recognition of underlying domestic issues long voiced by the voluntary non for profit organisations and either ignored or underfunded or both.

As we get deeper into this pandemic we will see our lower demographics, the homeless, the unprotected elderly, disabled living on the edge,and working poor some with no home to isolate will fall first without recognition of family or data counts.

This is not only a Australian issue, it’s a world wide issue.

Those people’s plight has come to light only because their situation effects the contamination rate that will spread to the rich and powerful regardless, a social leveller of deadly proportions.

Going forward this disease is not going away worldwide and even if contained is some countries it will be prevalent in the poorer nations for decades to come, so surely now is the time where look at our society in a light where people, all people count more than someone’s bank account. Outsourcing food and manufacturing has proven a flawed ideology and will be the test of any government who does not learn from this experience and steer a return to the neo liberalism free market economy. We cannot isolate ourselves but we must take control back to all Australians equally, as after this their will be a depressed economy and like our forefathers after the wars we all must stand together as a country not a company.

Titanic Trump ask Anyone.

I’m am not a supporter of any political side in America, and to be quite honest I think both Trump and Biden should be in nursing homes. Both verging on senility, one a psychopath who changes personality as the polls or the wind blows, the other stumbling and old man who I find dodgy to say the least.

Trump has no social conscience only self preservation and would have no problem abandoning ship and leaving the people to die if the polls or Fox indicated he would somehow gain in PR or politically.

I think the Titanic photo about nails his personality and reactions to a tee and the lower demonstrates his ability to keep the American people dumbed down.

I was totally devastated to see who’s is happening, but after siding with the dissenters on separation he signed the nations death warrant now I feel nothing can stop America from apocalyptic genocide of itself and all you can do is watch it happen in slow motion and record.

I am quite comfortable saying if Trump had decisions on who to live he would have no hesitation to decide by political affiliations, ethnicity, religion, or whatever his whim is at they particular moment as they did in Auschwitz-Birkenau.

History is live and free and Trump is the “Best Captain of the Titanic ask anyone.”

It’s the Dow or Your Survival!

Putting on my alfoil hat and at the risk of being called a mad left wing greeny, I would like to make some sense out of this blame game the politicians are playing on how the covid19 originated to cover why they did not act timely enough to protect their populations.

China, the World Health Organisation, Europe, Bats, plus anything else has been clung to to deflect accountability but in my view that is the effect not the cause.

Mother Nature since day one has provided a space where all of us can survive on this planet, animals, humans,the entire life cycle insulated from each other by distance, and filtered by the natural forests, bush, woods all over the planet . That filter also balances and blocks the flow of cross contamination between species and it’s not rocket science when the filters get destroyed the chances of exotic diseases forming rises. Link that with the decreasing food shortages around the globe humans are sourcing the wild animals that were never on the human food chain out of necessity to survive.

As all the ducks line up in that chain we continue to clear and destroy habitats which in fact is providing the platform for our own demise.

The real question is after this will we learn or will we put survival ahead of the Dow?

I live in hope but looking at the imbeciles who cannot comprehend the present restrictions put in place for our immediate survival how will they have the intelligence to look past themselves let alone the planet.

Watching History is Confronting

Being in lockdown does give you time to watch, research, question, and think about our place in the scheme of things locally, nationally and internationally, that’s is if you choose to move out of your bubble.

For many it’s easier to just turn on, believe, press the share button or talking head and not think of what you’re actually doing as it sounded good for that millisecond you saw it.

History tells us many dictators/tyrants use that initial reaction to indoctrinate their populations and build on via propaganda to convince the populous to fall into line. Hitler, Stalin are the big examples but many more less notables have played the same cards using nationalism right or left as their key ingredient.

So lets look at the leaders in real time starting with our own Scotty Morrison who has discovered like a bolt from his god that there are people outside his bubble that actually keep his business mates in business. Workers are not collateral damage anymore they have become important and without them his mates will fold.

Overall his reaction has been a credible response as PM but the full credit must go to the state Premiers who have become the real national leaders in this fight to save lives. They are the leaders regardless of political alliances.

NZ have a brilliant PM and she saved her nation from what could have been the total destruction of their population.

Merkel another decisive leader who moved quickly and saved millions.

Johnson dithered now the hammer is falling on his people.

Italy and France just missed the boat and the inevitable will play out it will run its course.

So now Trump. What a classic clusterfuck is all that it can be described as. Sorry for the language but that’s it.

When a leader of a nation cannot distinguish between politics and science the outcome will never be good.

People will die for his Dow. He is putting his political future ahead of his people he is supposed to protect but unfortunately his limited mentality only sees politics as his decision maker. IF your a good boy he likes you, if your naughty boy he hates you and that simplistic childish view is accrue to his upbringing as a spoiled little rich mommies boy with all the big new toys in the sand pit.

He hasn’t moved past that grade 5 litterary level in body and mind and America is in danger not only from the virus but I can see this splitting of people will result in genocide of the lower demographics be allowed to occur as a economic strategy to save the rich and elite.

His brainpower does not extend past his political survival and will continue to play divide and rule and if that’s when a country that is 2 months behind the rest of the world in reaction time and he is withholding and telling them a silver bullet is on its way is verging on what could be regarded as a war crime against his own community.

At this point I declare i am not a supporter of any side as I feel their entire system of public care, social consciousness is non existent. They have been attuned to crawling over anyone to get to the top. Money, acquisitions , then power is the sign of success and how you got it is irrelevant and that will be their downfall as they will never be able to adjust to social responsibilities as it would infringe on their so called “freedom” .

Looking at the future the choices leaders is horrific. Two senile old men, one a creepy groping peodiphile and the other simplistic child in a mans body parading as world champion wrestler in his fake hair, tan and plastic belt.

I truly feel sorry for the real people, the intelligent people who must be scared for their lives and their family, as common logic and truth will be overridden by the flood of propaganda that is to come when the real wave hits.

I love where I Live and we can whinge and complain but distance is our friend in these times locally, state wise, and nationally and internationally.

Happy Ester All stay safe

Woff.
