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.

Unfortunate History We Have to Watch.

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.

Let’s keep it simple..

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.

It Started with a Flag Hug.

They say when a politician drapes him or herself in a flag indicates

lack of depth in policy and profile.

So was the case when the minister for travel to the Phillipines from North Queensland decided to divert attention from himself and played “the look over there” card with China.

His talent does not extend to Foreign Affairs or anything important enough to gain any form of responsibility in the coalition yet to his credit he followed the Trump script to the letter which initially was lampooned by his colleagues but then in keeping with the this government’s lap dog policy with Trump on the WHO the Foreign Minister decided with a stroke of genius to announce policy on a Sunday talk show.

No one would disagree the need to investigate the source and failings of COVID in its infancy but the TV stage was typical Trump without the twitter feed, not true diplomatic protocol when dealing with Australians biggest client.

Quite rightly our men and women on the land went on alert as in a Twitter feed their livelihoods were put a risk immediately, a position that would never have happened if diplomatic channels where maintained however not so when relations have depreciated so much one on one dialog with opposite Trade Ministers failed into stand off from both sides.

Another diplomatic fail and procrastination confirms it.

Our Agricultural Industry across the board cannot be put at risk by playing tit for tat games to appease Trumpian alliances not in our national interest.

To establish clients outside the present market with China with the same volumes is farcical in the short term and highly unlikely in the long and would send our farmers to the wall overnight, and poking the bear or dragon is not a sign of strength it’s sign total diplomatic failures to settle the waters which is what we expect and pay our politicians to do.

We all appreciate our sovereignty should never be put at risk ,but our position in world affairs is overstated particularly on home soil for political reasons for too long, and does us no favours on the international stage where parochialism is diplomatic poison.

We are a trading nation full stop but that will change post COVID hopefully with an increase in manufacturing base so we must set our own course over time and not allow foreign investment or another county’s political whims to be our master.

Skilled diplomacy with skilled people is paramount as in any business and if the customer walks you go broke.

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?

He Who Pays the Piper, Selects the Tune.

News is in the headlights of late and as the organisation’s bid for our gold coin per day we the public must also look at the quality we are being served up.

I’m on the record for being in favour of balanced and investigative journalism across the board and fortunate enough to have the time to be able to source different outlets world wide and my concerns about what is truth are growing.

Our news sources are diminishing and centralising, our national broadcaster is being defunded buy a thousand cuts, and extreme groups are infiltrating the talking heads who impersonate professional journalists, no wonder it becomes just too hard for joe citizen to find the illusive truth and turns off.

It’s red alert when media groups hold fund raising events for political party’s, when journalists are arrested for doing their job, when investigative journalism is regarded as a enemy of the state, and politicians run to politically friendly news services to avoid scrutinisation, we have to ask is this the way a democracy works or are we on the soft fascism road and no ones game to ask?

Loss of democracy moves slowly, feeding on apathy, as once we could regard media as the watchdog, but today that dog has too many masters, and we the punters are left making the decision who really is telling truth and who has a agenda to gain power in a government of their choice?

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.

Bit of a Sub Edit Below.

Sub edit fail.

Mr. Bean Masterstrokes

Why is it that whenever you think we as a nation are getting some sort of consensus some see it advantages to seek to divide?

Its beyond my recall when our states and federal governments has put politics aside yet we have examples of late where the true characters of some who need conflict to elevate their flailing or failed profiles.

I will not back away from the fact our State Government has undergone surgery and reshuffles and resignations have taken place locally as is done by all of Political parties in their tenure as government and we were reminded when a former State Member and now Somerset councillor rose from his Ipswich hideaway to weight in on fractional pranks, a game he played and lost in his one term debacle under Cambell Newman.

Then we have Mr Christensen the self appointed Foreign Minister who when he is in the country declares takes aim at our biggest export nation China without thinking things like international diplomacy protocols exist and the fallout of that ignorance. Totally out of his pay grade, and intellectual capacity.

Then we have Mr Dutton, the cruise ship king lecturing a treasurer on the quantitive steps to keep Queenslanders employed and Tourists industries fluid, and outback air service retained after himself failing to count his own caucus to see if he had the numbers to challenge for PM, a Mr. Bean masterstroke.

If we are to build back faith in our political processes and democracy we could start by sticking to your appointed day job, serving your constitiuents well and not grandstanding.

Why America, Why??

At the risk of being told I know nothing again abut America one can only surmise that the once greatest nation in the world ,if you listen to the them, that is is crashing into a totally failed state. #Failure

I appreciate they were totally disenchanted with politics after Obama, and they punished themselves by jumping on the Trump train OR were that that lethargic they thought Clinton would shit in and didn’t bother to get off their arse to vote.

Either way they would have elected a fraud. #Failure

No doubt Clinton was the establishmentarian puppet and following Obama would be a tough act to follow. Looking at the Obama stint one thing is certain, Americans broadly could not accept a black president event though he was a Blue the undertones within his own party reflected a racial culture deeply Imbedded, and how he completed his tenure without a attempt on the life’s of him or his family was remarkable.

No one can imagine, even the media the internal networks that have vested interests in both sides so it’s the average Joe Citizen runs a solid last when it comes to the earning a priority from government, yet they reject any government support in health or wellbeing as some sort of socialist plot exemplified by fact government has outsourced responsibility to big businesses who sponsor their election campaigns. No it’s not corrupt at all, trust them, so I fully understand their attitude. A #Failure in human rights as not all can be privileged to have any Health cove so they will die in the gutter.

By keeping the masses dumbed down, a state that is easy when you control the media coverage into minimal outlets all within America you can sell the masses like mushrooms in the dark and feed them bullshit., particularly when you have a illiteracy rate numbering higher than the entire Australian population. Another #Failure their society.

I won’t go down the road of equality to all because that is a impossible dream, be it equal rights for women, races, sexes even religions, educating the masses and cultures is enormous but our country Australia #Failure gets a #Failure that category if the truth is known.

Enter Trump and his Drain the Swamp, Make America Great slogan and the destruction of the establishment became a obsession as Hitler did when he took his dictatorship, exterminating opposition and controlling media or eliminating it, and it worked until enter #covid_19 at distraction at the time, a plot to overthrow him, while his total focus was on getting the stock market up to keep his backers bankrolled, while selling himself as a man of the downtrodden, and they bought it hook line and sinker and still do.

This virus however has highlighted the fact Trump has Mental health issues magnified by the heat in the kitchen, exposing a psychopath with split personalities and actions and whoa behold anybody who gets in the way of a personality governed by a poll or media report or a professional who tells truth to the masses in contradiction to his spin. A #Failure sheer basic democracy that extends to what will be genocide as a result of sheer incompetence.

So what of the future or the way forward for the Trumps Titanic ?

Personally I see no way out in the near future. Politically I believe Trump will continue as Biden is a absolute #Failure as a person, a politician, and a leader,and should never be the nomination but that’s America #Failure in itself and while they continue to elect senile old men to their congress and presidency the nation will be continually locked in the past as by keeping there outdated constitutional beliefs waiting for the British to re invade.

The Republicans will eventually tire or he of them and he will move to his own Party or Cult to survive and mobilise his followers to a civil rebellion if he looks like being defeated, and who would back Biden not getting the nomination at the big conference and them accept a nomination from the floor. Wow the odds of that are about as far out as Trump starting a war to deflect the masses when the true death toll of #covid_19 is revealed.

Someone’s God better Bless America it’ll need it real soon.
