Challenging the Convention of Marriage

At 70+ I was bought up with the respect of the institution of marriage and all that goes with it.

That institution can be good for some but toxic and downright dangerous and life threatening for others. Over time the institution has diminished but mainly in all faiths it is a inhibitor for those who are abused and do not want the added stigma of divorce if they are permitted.

Marriage the prison keeps victims close and secure under the screen of normality and privacy and is a barrier to police knowing exactly what is happening but cannot act where in normal circumstances violators can be just taken with appropriate evidence.

Has the marriage institution past its use by date?

OMG I can hear the religious lobby going for the voodoo dolls as a income stream comes under threat. Send in the Marriage Mafia to put the heavies on the natives as if people moved from institutionalised relationships to free relationships would be incomprehensible.

Nothing to stop individual agreements, legal or whatever but not religious or society driven contracts, just two people deciding to live together and if it fails the law not the churches to sort it.

No I have not got this right, but I want to start to question to stop #domesticviolence and it seems we just blame game in circles and we should start from where relationships are locked in and see if that is a issue that needs to be included.

We’re Holding our Breath.

Well it happened ,cost millions, but it was a point that needed to be made.

The Orange Man Cowardly run away to the relief of any more illiterate waffling of a spoilt child loosing his favourite daily toy for that day given to him by his mummy to keep him quiet.

The new king has taken the castle and cleaning out the cupboard but probably nothing will change much other than the noise level.

Priority one is saving the population from basic extinction from the covid which didn’t seem to be important until now.

Politics was all important than any silly pandemic tearing the world apart and his supporters who followed him, followed his lies and innuendo blindly while all the time he was manipulating them into thinking they were helping the country rid of the evil he himself lives.

A rather psychopath skill used by Hitler and other despots that America will take years to wake up. That’s a challenge for the new king and probably the next.

The media both sides cannot go unchallenged. With real journalism being treated as toxic because it doesn’t fit the government narrative and agree it, is branded as enemy of the state. Toxic bias from both sides spewing the opinion shows pretending to be real journalism with hosts some with do not pass the IQ level of a head lice.

And sadder, people believe them because they too are fed by a monopolies with self interest first. Red ,Blue , no difference within America and that’s how things got out of hand. People lost the ability to think for themselves and that’s exactly what the media moguls want. Group think, setting up their own gestapo groups driving around with flags on Utes similar to the ISIS terrorists armed to the hilt.

What does that project to the rest of the world?

Patriotic image they think, downright facist activity viewed by the world, but that word facist is beyond the understanding of the uneducated participants. The average American links communism with socialism or socialistic initiatives like health care, and other things helping the less fortunate. Again uneducated and ill informed based on scare dividing cultures that know nothing about anything outside their state sometimes neighbourhood. Yep keep feeding them bullshit and show them a flag and they will hand their kids over to the warlords and get a flag back if your lucky and if they come back broken its not your countries concern its you local government to look after them.

Unless of course if they need props for a national event and then they call on all that national pride till after the parade has passed.

Sound familiar? It happens here in Australia and our governments of all breeds have failed them as well but not to the same scale as the Americans because of our health system they think is socialistic.

Ideology again reins over social responsibility.

Well that about enough of this waffle for today but as a observer I cannot go without saying how refreshing it was to see a full as possible press core at the first new kings presser and the freedom of the responses and questioning with respect both ways was my highlight above over all the pomp and ceremony..

I

Can History set America’s Course?

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.

2020 ….. Yeah….. No

Language and Concept Warning

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.

Yep the mask is not a political test it’s a IQ test.
About says it all on mindset.

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.

Case closed.

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.

Yep, got it

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.

Big Guns, Little Dicks, and smaller brains

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.

Federal ICAC ?

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.

I think the public is asking the question right now.

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 …

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 ..

Federal ICAC to Oversee Judicial Appointments.

It has been a well known in the legal profession that bullying and misogyny is common within its culture, so the revelations of the a Chief Justice has been called out by a independent investigation.

His controversial appointment and alliance to the conservative government is on the record, a situation that brings our justice system into a focus for all the wrong reasons.

I am a firm believer judicial appointments must be isolated from political influence or intervention, and have a body similar to a federal ICAC oversee all judicial appointments, state and federally.

Our justice system can never be allowed to follow the American path, and should never be a tool of any political whim or payback.

I am very concerned about the wedge politics played by this government, playing state against state in Covid crisis, the mirroring of American racial attitudes emerging here in Australia, and our government responses truly Trumpian be it ministers or backbenchers.

With our media opinion taking a higher profile than factual reporting, our fallback legal professions independence and faith in the system cannot be compromised by political noise or propaganda regardless of who you support, so I see no reason why Judicial Appointment should not be a part of a Federal ICAC which this government promised last election and still have failed to act on.

That’s not surprising is it?

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 .

Murdock Butchers our Local Newspapers

For those who are not so News aware the Murdock Press has made the decision to cease all hard copy news papers to the regional and country areas across Australia and go digital.

This action in effect sends the little and older generations into news darkness as many have no IT or basic computer knowledge.

This may have been self inflicted by some granted as they refused to grow with the times and others unable to grow due to educational limits.

With all that’s said, the facts are people will loose the fabric that binds smaller communities together, a lifestyle that is incomprehensible to the self centred generations living their little boxes with make believe acquaintances online, many unable to communicate face or face let alone read and comprehend a news article.

A bit savage you may think? Yes but truthful and if you need proof, spend a hour or two on a polling booth and see humanity in its raw form doing something that should effect their lives and their family’s.

You will be amazed at the ignorance not only of the political systems but of general manners expected of a human being.

That said as true to form as you can get from Murdock the said they’d keep regional and small papers on takeover from APN and they lied, nothing new again from these bottom feeders of toxic text, and they will expect you to buy the Courier Mail if you want a hands on paper which in fact is nothing more than a LNP newsletter as I have stated many times and subedited out or simply consigned to the junk mail.

Truth and Murdock should never be put in the same sentence, as you now know from their actions.

In my case my editorial days may be limited as many times before my View does not sit with the owners ideology and I have been extremely lucky to have a editor who still feels balanced reporting is a key factor in a democracy, but like the QT she too is moving and many of the contributors may join me in the junk mail due to our views clashing with the owners ideology also.

That’s life but it does not help those who have been thrown into darkness, those businesses who’s adds were accessible freely will not have a presence of picking up a paper, the sporting body who wants any press to help them survive, the cocky who wants the cattle prices, the auctioneer, the church, the garage sale, and you can go on all gone to the iPad or smart phone of the fortunate.

To be honest I’m looking at community radio as a service, not a competitive entity but NFP (non for profit) organisation and any other media stream APP to try and compensate the losses, and any ideas please fill in at the bottom of this blog. Also Periscope the live App has been mentioned.

And I cannot close without mentioning the silence of the Hanson’s, the Katters, the Nationals all supposed to represent country people but obviously terrified to upset their puppet master Murdock, their absolute silence says why we as a nation need to govern ourselves for ourselves not run the agenda of a non tax paying overseas jerk , but not one of the conservatives have the guts to call him out. Political Harlots. All looking for that headline from Rupert.

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.
