Australia is Not A Company thanks.

It seems the truce is over in the COVIDSafe debate and the ideology is returning as status quo.

As I have stated previously in hope that our politicians realise we are running a country not a company but now it seems the dollar will push the medical science and any science to the back seat where it’s been parked under this government.

When we will we stop following the Trump edict and put people first or when will the politicians stand up and say how many are they deaths are they prepared to accept as a fair trade off to appease lobbyists?

We all know how critical it is for our economy to start that’s not the debate but it’s the timing and the risk of a secondary wave, and after patting ourselves on the back just to be kicked backwards by the irresponsible self centred who really don’t care. We see how quick it moves to spread so it seems this government is putting all the eggs on a App to justify its decisions regardless if public opinion more than sceptical on its taupe and effectiveness.

Yes in a company you plan and enact risk management but as I’ve stated this situation is not a company which this government cannot come to terms with because fact is the people who will be exposed the most are the people are the ones on the coal face that we need to keep the place running or haven’t we learnt that yet either?

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.

Let’s Rethink All Elections in Australia.

#covid_19

After this period of time now and beyond our world will never be the same.

We will have to have a total reset in Australia after the risk management exercise and we will have to analyse our Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats at a scale never done before.

Our leaders and their performances at all levels plus industry, workers, in fact society will be part of that assessment that is if our politicians put the nation before self interest.

We will, probably demand our leaders have a skill set to move us into the new World that everyone will be looking inward on how they performed in this crisis at all levels of government that is why I feel we should suspend all elections now as the people we elect today may not be the ones with the ability to take us forward in the unknown.

Locally who knows where we will end up, but it won’t be the same. We want people to match the times at the helm and we the punters can’t judge now on a landscape we know will never be the same.

Yes a big call but it’s time for big calls from leaders who have that forward vision and in this case practically must outrank process and I’m sure our public servants should be allowed to continue without the responsibility of holding the hands of the new kids in the sandpit on changeover in a national crisis.

This will upset some who think in the present, but it’s the ones who think past the present are the ones we need in our council chambers.

Our Nation Sinks as Struggle Street Grows.

Since my arrival in the Ipswich area I’ve never seen our society so poor. Maybe I move in different circles than some to notice this but reports I’m getting are more than disturbing.

Organisations like Rosies, Goodna Street Street Life and many others are at the coalface of our demise and seeing people pleading for work as in qt edition today is not now uncommon., as it’s not only the homeless in strife but we are witnessing people struggling to do what they see the right thing by their kids schooling in food barns. Turf wars have broken out with people doing roadside recyclable pick ups, and I’ll leave it to the police data to reveal how older aged people are now becoming easy targets for theft.

Ipswich is not alone with this issue, Toowoomba, Dalby and other smaller towns the problem cannot be hidden anymore, probably magnified by the drought, yet this Federal Government is in denial that real jobs are required and convinced that keeping the masses on part time or short term employment makes builds the economy and profits. This surplus ideology is failing as we speak, the nation is suffering as a result and it doesn’t care.or does not have the ability to turn a economy around. by the bottom up.

I am assure you until we address our struggle street in this town our retailers will struggle and so on up the chain and our history has proven that time and time again.

From Baby Boomer to the Social Elite?

For us early risers it was a pleasure to get up every morning and turn on the radio and get the world news on our much loved ABC and discuss how lucky we were not to be where the nastiest things were happening in the world.

Today I’m more hesitant to even turn on the radio or tv as daily reports of crime, death by guns, knives, gangs, abductions, domestic violence and child abuse, racial hatred pouring out of the electronics, and we have to ask ourselves why or what have we let our society get to this state in Australia.

After the election I’m in the category of the self interested/ money hoarding baby boomer who only cares about me and my immediate family and the franking credits. Me not I assure you, but obviously many are and the reason we got to where we are is we were fortunate to have governments that saw things like superannuation, health care, 9 day fortnight’s, annual leave loading, employment, pension, and many other perks today we take for granted.

Our society was based on helping up those who were less fortunate, ie. returned war service personnel, TPI’s, widowed women and families all of us in the same boat struggling to get their families a feed let alone a house or property, that come later with the housing commission, another social incentive to get us established.

We were blessed wen we look back, no money but things were simple and we made sure our kids got it easier.

Today we have a greedy society all about “ME”. And we look down on people who’s demographic we were. They now born into poverty have a really tough time getting out and crime becomes a choice, never or rarely thought of back then but for some the only salvation to survive.

Increasing jails, fines are fruitless until we can get the social injustices addressed if not everyone will be living in gated communities scared to take your kids to the park or beach.

This idea of this government of giving only the ones who “have a go” help and thinking the ones on New Start or no start will look after themselves or die is actually playing out in our streets daily.

Looking back we got it pretty right in the early part then we forgot from where we come and must ask ourselves where we got it so wrong, and my answer is when greed outweighed our social responsibility.

Getting to Know My Body

Well I have never had major surgery and I don’t know about you I was very apprehensive about my upcoming ordeal.
Now its done and dusted, I did not realise how well the body goes to work when its put under the pump.
I thought I was in charge of my body up until then, I knew the signs and triggers, but no way it told me what I was going to do and when and no way could I override the instructions to if I tried I would pay a price of pain.
The staff all know, the medics know, you jus got to accept you are not bulletproof.
One can only commend the Nurses, Doctors, Surgeons, phisio’s, cooks and cleaners all putting it together to make a orthopaedic ward work.
You need to be special people to work in those wards and get the best out of their patients recovery.
Anyway no time for sitting here stiffening up, it’s time for exercise and more exercise to get through the barrier or all will be lost….
