Shocking Uncle-Daddy!

Fuck! I actually just heard a recording of Colin Barnett saying something that I agree with! (I must be getting mind controlled!) Do you want to know what that is? I can hear some of you saying, “Yes!” and some saying “Fuck off, Idiot! I only read this blog to laugh at your stupid attempts to justify your attitude to life and your actions in it!”

Harsh criticism I know and 100% correct. I see the flaw of my being and there is naught that I can change about the past. I see similar conditions in much of the underlying angst for justification in so many around me and much in the bloggo-sphere. But we, for the most part, are blind to our own ego’s limitations, being of solid boundaries that clash rather than blend. The world view that we articulate is focused through the prism of our ego’s and thus we have a restricted point-of-view.

We can be standing side by side and looking in the same direction but what we would choose to see will be different. That’s because we’re different from each other. We don’t think the same way. Have you ever tried to point something out to someone either figuratively or physically? They have to be directed to your point of interest or conclusion.

I may include some back-up links for what I’m saying but do you really want to wade through psychology journals with me? Nah! Didn’t think so. I prefer to base my arguments in logic rather than research because these days research has become debased to a large degree by the funding sources. It’s not cheap to do ‘authentic’ research so it’s the multinationals and their profit at all costs agenda that fills and directs the funding void.

I’ll try to stick to logic. It’s verifiable according to a set of criteria that was set down by the classical thinkers all those centuries ago. Of course, I will have to add my own logical devices to give me cover for making some outrageous claims that could never be backed up in a month of Sundays,… but hey, trust me! I’m sure I can think of a reason!

First, I will need to try and bring you into a state of receptive attention. For this I have constructed a device for you to rest your eyes on and think.

What does it all mean? I’m not exactly sure myself but I will make an attempt.

I would like you to consider that we have done this before. You know, wrecked the planet with man-made technologies. We gone and done this because we are fascinated by, and drawn to, power. Whether it’s the power of the charismatic leader or the power released from splitting the atom we feel the same sense of awe. It is only after we set the filter of knowledge and experience can we turn down that sensation that so occludes our critical thinking. By this time you are either too old or too imbedded in a toxic industry to choose a different path.

An example of occluded thinking is this notion that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. This philosophical(?) underpinning argument is used by the pro-Nukers to justify the alarming rates of cancer that they wont admit to down-wind/river/sea of nuclear facilities/test sites/waste dumps/reactors. All they will admit to is an increased level of radioactive discharge into the environment but no increases in overall rates of cancer. They can argue that because they collate and control all the facts and figures on cancer cases and manipulate them every way they like by omission and/or substitution.

Please watch this video to give you some reasons as to why I’m arguing this

At this point it might be advisable to look upon this

It might be worth your while to go back to the first picture as well. Now scroll between the two getting as fast as you can before you start thinking, “How is this helping?”

toojay uncle-daddy 029

Well, this being the Uncle-Daddy part of the show it might be advisable to get the children out of the room and off to bed so they can’t hear you cry out for Uncle-Daddy to stop telling you “That’s how it is, man!”

All wars are Bankster’s wars and all civil society is a thin veneer of decency to cover the true intent of the ruling elites. We have freedom to choose one of the alternatives supplied for us by the elite. We can choose to life in a militaristic society where war is the overt agenda or we can choose the civil society where war is the covert agenda. Believe me, competition in the marketplace can be just as deadly as hand to hand combat. In fact the two are inextricably linked precisely because I can relate the two together like maps of the same coastline from different eras. Some things don’t change; Shore on one side, sea on the other. Winners on one side of the economic divide, losers on the other. There is some mixing at the interface of the economic divide but only enough to perpetuate and protect the status-qua for the majority.

Here’s my impression of the majority

toojay uncle-daddy 023Weird bunch, mostly bald and different sizes. Now we know why we don’t want to frighten them too much. You could be easily trampled underfoot by one of the bigger ones! It’s best to let them just carry on not realizing that their lack of cohesive direction is a function of their existence. Individualism sent to the knackers yard of puerile entertainment bought to us by every brand and corporation that ever crept up to, and then blundered about on, the world stage. Knackered through our televisions, through our schools, through our government corporations, and through our work places until all you can see or know is what has been fed to you by these institutions born of the wealthy for the wealthy.

You wont need blinkers when your blind to what’s in front of your face.

You see, capitalism, in the sense that I have seen it operating in my part of the world lends me to the belief that it works only because it makes the Banksters rich and powerful. They’re the ones that finance it all. Without their signature on the contracts the money wont happen to get the business ventures going. Modern capitalism is controlled by the financial giants on Wall street who are in turn given their orders from the Banksters in the City of London. Business is now done in bubbles manufactured by these financial wizards housed in their glass and steel towers. They all think they have an unencumbered point of view when in point of fact theirs is just as restricted by ego as everybody else.

But now that time is almost past as you may have been realizing. Uncle-Daddy has been setting up for the coup of a life-time;

toojay uncle-daddy 016

Uncle-Daddy is the embodiment of all that’s cute and cuddly about having a psycho in charge. He loves the notion of the ‘needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few’ when it’s he who gets to decide who are the many and who are the few.

Of course in the real world it is done in a more complex fashion and it certainly takes more than one decision from one person to inflict such collective punishment on the many with the explanation, ” Well, you brought all this financial ruin upon yourselves and your country because you wouldn’t stop borrowing money from us. Which we let you do until we decided we weren’t going to any more. Which then caused the entire financial system to cease to function and then we got the tax-payer funded bail-out for us too big to fail, too powerful to jail, financial institutions. We hope you stupid, poor, people take note that you are all owned by our machine in more ways than you will care to admit to yourselves!”

That’s why we hurtle toward wars and listen to the propaganda of the ruling elite that need our willing sacrifice so they can keep the wheels of their financial Juggernaut well oiled with blood spilled by the people of the Middle East. As far as I can make out there will be no peace there until they have slaughtered most of the people in it. They are in a meat grinder operated by American and Israeli forces using a complex web of insurgency groups attacking their own in a sectarian blood-bath. All orchestrated by the American/Israeli’s/British over many years.

toojay uncle-daddy 038

Uncle-Daddy wants it all to stop so he can have more fun. How about it, Hamas and Israel?

Horserotovator bowing out for a while to find out if the 15% guaranteed from our gas fields for local supply is true and is happening as envisioned by the enabling legislation and intoned by Colon Barnett as a good thing that should have been done by all the country thus making me have to agree with him…..you get the picture.

 

The Emperor has his Palace but what will the people think of his new clothes?

0

Seen the pictures. Listened to the architect dribble on about how he (male, of course) tried to keep the interior as true to the original design as possible and have come to the conclusion that there is an awful lot of that $26 million in consultants pockets and not very much at all actually spend on the refurbishment of the structure.

I’m not surprised because that’s how you keep yourself in political power, by giving away enormous amounts of tax-payers money to managers, consultants and spin doctors (often interchangeable and therefore indistinguishable to the naked eye or a hare-lip) to hypno-con the public into believing that somehow this government has a thorough bred understanding of excellent managerial practices of our States finances.

All done with not even a slight tilt or nod of the head to indicate that the unsuitable for such high and occasional tea paid the taxes for this expensively built knob polished twirling room for those willing to pay the price for a meeting with the Emperor. No doubt the twirlers will be presenting him with his new clothes.

Government has become rather good at lining its ministers pockets and the pockets of their friends and family while the rest of us muddle on in spite of the parasitic sucking away at our hard earned. It is just the nature of the Beast, so let no one wonder at what sort of people got to work on the Premiers Palace at wet dream wages and conditions.

I foolishly used to think I would like to be involved with the West Australians organised industrial conspiracy many years ago until I realised I wasn’t ever going to be invited into this ‘purple circle’ of individuals who sit at the helm of the unions and employer groups that fester here. I would never have been a good candidate inasmuch that when ever I had the occasion to experience their Machiavellian antics I would ape them in a gross parody that flattered neither myself nor them. They are exponents of the art of dissembling. They can and do pretend that their actions that strip away the hope and dignity of others is all justified by involvement with the larger and vastly more sophisticated picture of how the world is when seen through the eyes of those who have it all at their finger tips. I could never put the blinkers on without being blinded in the process. It isn’t hard to conclude all organisations are corrupted at the top by the greedy and that they have no remorse when using the naive drawn to these organisations to protect and promote their own exclusive interests.

These groups have inevitably metastasised into the political class that is neatly divided in this country into the Labor/Greens and Liberal/National Parties. The minor Parties change names as fashions change but their function of duality is maintained. This duality is reflected both between and within the major Parties and is a simple yet effective rendering in real-politic of the Hegelian dialectic. As each takes the reigns of power synthesis is achieved in the Parliament as they cease to be ideological and instead become apparently pragmatic. I was a fool for a long time, believing that these Parties were divided by opposing ideas and were defined by them. Well, that was just for public consumption as they say, for these Parties are joined together at the Bank where the real control of our lives exists. The ideas are just for us fools to fight with each other over. Ideas about the working class as an opposing force to the employer class create divisions within communities from which these devils make money through conflict borne out of inequality in opportunity. People who can see through some of the charade are utterly bamboozled by some other aspect such as the cult of personality.

It is show business for ugly and nasty people and that without the backing of the international bankster cartel these Parties of parasites would cease to exist in very short order. In point of fact since in this distorted world of politics the betrayal of the rest of us to the international slave traders (mining resource corporations) happens while one hand washes the other (banksters and their Petit bourgeois politicians) it becomes apparent one would not be viable without the other. The compartmentalised pyramid of power and control shows how easy it now is to enforce the doctrines and philosophy of the Illuminati. Their talents are vastly different from the talents that you would assume are gifted to the actor or musician, although having some cross-over into those talents exponentially enhance the vicissitudes they so easily contrive for our consumption.

In the end it is all about the MONEY. Money is the black hole that draws all those who venture into these areas of human control to the point of no return. That is because, as I have come to realise, the concept of debt based money is negative. It exists only as an absence within all the documentation that surrounds it creating its intention (for those who spend most of their waking moments aspiring to its acquisition through manipulation of OPM) of drawing the unsuspecting into believing that it has some kind of intrinsic value. It has NONE! It is a slight of hand and a trick of the light. It is a medium of exchange and without the goods and/or services book-ending the transaction it is shown to be worthless. ie Bank creates the money/credit to lend to the Butcher to pay the meat wholesaler to sell to the Bakers wife or husband who pays money/credit back to the Butcher which cycles back to the bank. Without sufficient economic activity you are only left with the usury component (interest that will compound into a spiral of accumulating debt if not cycled within a certain time span) which is utterly COUNTER-productive.

You can’t eat money, you cant build things with money. You can’t drive a gold bar or a dollar bill around town. It is in essentially and only a medium that creates a utility that motivates economic activity. Greedy banksters have made the mistake of imposing an extrinsic value of interest that deceives people into thinking it has an intrinsic value. But it has no real value without the spin doctors (banksters) imposing a cost (interest) that in the long run has the effect of destroying it’s utility as a medium of exchange.

OK, you got that? Let’s move on a bit…..

This accumulating spiral of debt, I believe, underlays the motivation for the wholesale invasion and destruction of all indigenous cultures around the world including the Australian Aboriginal culture. It is because they had done without money as a medium of exchange for at least 30,000 years and achieved a stable and exceedingly healthy lifestyle before the European invasion. I think they understood that it is kinship that is the medium through which all exchanges must take place as the action of exchange is the essence of effecting economic activity, not money per se.

Our obsession with money for money’s sake has turned us into cultural and environmental rapists pursuing the mandated burden of the compounded interest on loans to the point of extinguishing all economic activity by smothering it with debt beyond its productive capacity to overcome during any business cycle timeline.

That is why I believe that the industrialisation of the Kimberley will be its cultural rape and environmental destruction and all for nothing as the debt/credit/debt cycle will just eat it whole.

Money, instead of being just a medium of exchange, has been made valuable in its own right through compounding interest on the principal because it has given the banksters a new power through the cost of providing money. This power is exemplified by the necessity to write loan contracts that control your activities over the life of that loan and beyond into the next loan to pay the interest generated on the loan before it. A never ending cycle that has fucked countries like Greece right up the ass.

That huge swinging dick is headed right for all our asses if we don’t stop it swinging soon.

TRY TO THINK.

Try to think about what would happen if everyone had access to the abundance around us without borrowing money to live. Well, it would mean the end of ownership of a peoples/government/nations physical/mental/emotional activities by another entity that we have no understanding or control over. No longer would the lenders be able to bend us to their will by manipulation of our personal and public economies. Under analysis it becomes glaringly obvious that the lending institution is just a medium through which the Illuminati work to control the unwitting and unfortunate to betray their friends, family, and eventually march off into war to give even more control by killing those implacably opposed to their form of compartmentalised pyramid control.

Most of what we see around ourselves and others is a product of a system of living that has torn us away from our humanity. How many of us can attest to the notion that the hours we work to make the necessary loan/mortgage repayments to maintain a lifestyle that we seldom get to see, let alone enjoy, is worth the effort and sacrifice?

Have you been raised to turn away from acts of violence and pretend you saw nothing is the right thing to do? Have you been taught to accept that there is no such thing as evil, just madness, and that it renders the crazed individual helpless until the Doctor arrives with his bag of needles and pharmaceuticals? Have you been taught that there is nothing beyond your own will to expediency? Then you are fully fledged lower level member of the Illuminati. It is a broad church and it only takes acquiescence to the authority of the dissolute to become a member

The government teach that the FIFO life is the way to secure a safe/secure/happy future. But all I will ask is does that future exist for you NOW or are you still waiting for it to happen? Still waiting for the kids to get married and settle down? Wondering if they might be different in some unacceptable way? Maybe getting too high on the synthetic drugs their huge pay packets can buy them? What a huge joke to semantics that is! Last time I looked all manufactured drugs were synthetic, psychedelic or any other . But we will never be able to have sensible discussions about drugs, synthetic or naturally growing like cannabis, cocoa leaves, the South American Yage vine, or psilocybin. We have the issues confused for the rest by talking in ignorant and misinformed terms like skunk-weed whose potency is affected (apparently) by adding man made chemicals (another load of rubbish put about by egomaniac politicians and their paid by the lie advisors to keep the sheeple at each others throats while they and their children carry out whatever lifestyle experiments they like involving rebellious but unconnected naive fools as cover for their activities).

But I digress from this notion that we have two political Parties, one running the show while the other in opposition with opposing ideologies that are given the reigns of power by the people through our ‘robust’ democratic system….Ha. What a huge fucking JOKE! Having a ‘Safe seat’ gives the lie to the idea that parliament is anything other that a gravy train for the political class and their various dynasties. Notice how their can only be a certain number of ‘safe seats’ in our pathetic representative democracy which automatically limits the number of those dynasties, and which of course, amplifies by codifying the power of those dynastic members who are anointed by their Party machine over the less protected members who risk dis-endorsement if they do not toe the party line.

Now let me have a word, or two, about the so called two Party system in the context of asylum seekers arriving by boat. When the Liberal/National Party were in power prior to 2007 and excised something like 300 islands from the Australian migration zone so that the boat arrivals could be shunted off to Naru and Manus Island in Papua New Guinea with no guarantee of re-settlement in Australia once they were eventually processed. The Labor Party (in opposition) were just about apoplectic in their vitriolic opposition to the moves by the Liberal/National Party government of the time. Indeed they, in part, won themselves an election over their opposition to such a callous attitude to these asylum seekers who were, and still are, coming on leaky boats to Australia in the hope of a better life.

I was transported here through Cape Town on a leaky, Greek boat filled with Greek immigrants headed for Melbourne who were forever getting into knife fights while on board. (But you wont hear anything like that from the likes of Abbott and Gillard who only want to bash a minority (asylum seekers) who will never have any electoral power. If Tony Robot is the best that the Liberal opposition can come up with then Labor will win by default. What a hopeless joke our democracy is!)

While we were at sea in the middle of the Indian ocean the crew tried to have a life boat drill but gave up when most of the life boats turned out to be rusted to their runners and couldn’t be launched. I was too young to be alarmed about such a situation but when the ship docked in Melbourne the MUA came on board and, tapping the life boats with a small hammer, found most of them to be rusted out hulks that would have just sunk the moment they were put in the water. How things change but stay the same, eh?!?

After arriving in Perth, Australia but moving on to Melbourne I had become fat and was accorded the title, P.o.M.E.(Prisoner of Mother England) bastard and was unmercifully bullied during all of my schooling there. People who think they have known me have said I should be grateful to be living in their lucky country, and in many ways I am because I had my eyes opened in ways that I’m still only now coming to terms with. But it set me apart from everyone else and I will never be able to close that gap. I will always be an outsider and can never be truly at ease because I don’t belong anywhere. I do not have a connection to a country, or a connection to a culture. I am in spite of everything. I am defined by what I am not and who I can never be. I am a Diaspora with no home that I can identify with.

In conclusion I want to say again that the industrialisation of the Kimberley should be resisted by all. Not only for the sake of the Aboriginal people who will be displaced from their Homeland by the remorseless march of the resource companies who care not a jot for the people who they will turn into internal refugees. But because the Banksters debt cycle (Their tried and true preferred business model for the rest of the world where a credit created on their balance sheet automatically becomes a debit for us all when things get out of hand. Just keep in mind the GFC and the bailouts we all have to pay for through higher taxes and reduced economic activity!) that is fucking Europe will just come right on over the seas and fuck us too.

With the exception, of course, of those ministers of our West Australian parliament who have been investing on those speculative shares that we, the uninformed, have no inside information on.

Live sheep, cattle, politicians and their cruelty.

Good for those animal rights activists who harnessed themselves, by thumb locking, onto the trucks bringing the live animals into Fremantle Port.

Good on them for getting onto one of the ships of death and being solid with animals that will be disgorged into a terrifying future of torture and death somewhere in the Middle East.

I applaud their actions under the trucks as they were entering the Port. It takes guts,  principle, and commitment to do that when they are regularly assaulted and threatened with death by the authorities that protect this vile and evil trade. What sort of principle drives the cocky or trucker that raise and then transport these animals in the first place? It would seem that to cause the sickening and disgusting problem of the live animal trade is easy when you are developed from birth with a moral/ethical compass that only has money as its lode stone.

Suffering and death is met with callous disregard by these people. Just listen to the spokespeople employed to spin for the companies and people involved. Compassion seems to be a meaningless concept when considering the animals welfare when set against the notion of easy money. They can pretend to exclude themselves from the barbarous end that these animals have to endure.

I have seen the reports that the culling has restarted in Pakistan for the thousands of sheep that have become unacceptable for reasons of political and personal hatred of this country.

Australia’s politicians lie to us that their are other reasons for this travesty of an inspection and rejection regime but their words are empty of meaning or integrity as they try to justify acts of wanton cruelty. Why don’t they just admit that they are cruel, nasty perverted people who get off on watching other creatures suffer while they die.

You may think that I am going too far in my condemnation of the people responsible for this trade. Indeed, I find that these words are shocking to me as well. But it is the logical outcome that as the viciousness of this crime against the animal kingdom becomes abundantly clear then the language used to describe it will reflect that viciousness.

How many people out there can listen to the sounds of lowering animals as they are transported to the abattoir, do nothing, and not be affected to the point of suffering the loss of their connection to humanity?

I can’t. I have been around when the truck that takes unwanted horses off to become pet food, and whatever else can be rendered from their bones, and I sent them away without the horses. That night I sent them away but they came back on another night I wasn’t there. I knew they were coming again and I knew that they would eventually get what they wanted, even from me. So I packed what little I had and left the countryside realising we are a doomed race. Doomed because we are killers born with the power of intellect to merchandise slaughter. We have made it another wholesale product with a meaning and consequence that is couched in language that sanitises killing by referring to it as a mechanical process.

I feel the pain of our dilemmas and I absorb the guilt for feeding my own pets on the meat drawn from these animal husbandry practices. I realise that we cannot escape the harsh realities that surround our food production chains but I will never condone the live animal trade to overseas. If we cannot kill them here (where the people I have described above can attach themselves to those cattle trucks and speak up for these creatures with such ferocity that we feel the power of their resistance to the cruelty) then we cannot be allowed to outsource the killing elsewhere where that resistance cannot be felt.

For that I humbly tip my hat to those activists who risk their lives to draw attention to the disgusting practices that rich Australians carry out in order to remain rolling in the filthy lucre that stains their souls and twists their minds into believing that what they do carries no consequence beyond there bankster account.

The live Sheep and Cattle trade must be stopped NOW!!!

0

It is a disgusting and sickening trade in the prolonged suffering and death of animals that perverts the minds of the people involved to the point that I cannot recognise them as human beings. You see, for me, compassion for the other inhabitants of this Earth is fundamental to our civilisation. Without it we are just robots who cannot love life and are therefore destined to destroy ourselves in a frenzy of orgiastic self interest. I get utterly contemptuous of the spokespeople who come out and defend this immoral, unethical, and downright evil activity on the grounds that it makes some people rich, keeps others employed, and provides taxes to the government.

They talk and walk in a fashion that makes me want to make them as the animals that they pay such scant regard for. I want them to feel the terror as the club, knife, or blade of a front end loader comes to slaughter them. Then I want them back to where they were before so they can explain to ME how they justify putting any creature to death that way.

There is no excuse for this type of treatment of livestock and even the designation ‘live-stock’ devalues the fact that these animals can feel pain and experience fear. To deny that there is a reality of pain and suffering for these animals is the same as me declaring that the human race has run its course and is now ready for destruction. Maybe it is but I’m not going to declare it. I’ll leave those sorts of dire predictions for your entrails to discern.

We do not need to eat much meat to live. I am what is called a demi-vegetarian in that I don’t eat red meat and haven’t since I was 17yrs old. I’m 50 now and in pretty good shape. Running my business involves a lot of physical labour. I probably do more physical labour in a week that most of the keyboard jockeys on the net would get in a year so the notion that we need meat to function properly is just a LOAD OF FUCKING GREAT LIES put about by the SCUM-SUCKING ELITE who want to see us all destroyed by our rabid meat-aholic attitudes that have been instilled in us to continue the perverted tradition of convincing us that we are nothing more than brutes who can only function by taking LIFE AWAY in increasingly barbaric ways.

FUCK YOU ASSHOLES in the cattle industry for being such vile hypocrites, pretending that you give a rats ass about the welfare of the animals you crush onto live animal carriers and send to be tortured and die by mutilation, suffocation, frenzied stabbing attacks, and dismemberment while still alive.

The cattle ranchers know full well that the people taking these animals consider them an avatar of the Australians that they HATE so much because of what and who we are. And who can deny their logic after all the death and destruction that we have inflicted on them and their lands all in the name of liberty. These are not sophisticated people, they are too poor. All they know is that they live in poverty while we look like we live in paradise. Of course this is not the reality of our existence but the conniving governments of the world love to promote this us and them approach to international relations so that they will always be allowed to negotiate on our behalf but only for their benefit.

Can’t stand to hear the truth of our existence? Too fucking bad, dudes!

Horserotovator has had a gut-full of the elite and has sent out the word to his brother and sisters on the range. Let’s see how smug you all are in the certainty of your own ascendency to GODHEAD when the horses start to bolt.

Career Death.

A majority of people in WA have a tendency to believe the old adage that the simplest explanation is usually the closest to the truth. These people are happier if they think they can easily distinguish between what they think is the right side and the wrong side and take the appropriate politically correct stance. The Hegelian dialectic of thesis, antithesis, and finally synthesis is advanced at every frontier of interface between the MSM, government, industry, defence and the general public. In this way we are led into the psychological corral of politically correct thinking that severely limits our ability to collectively and/or individually appreciate the complexities of the conflicts that surround us.

This only benefits those who have the power to foster change. They dress that change up as a panacea for the various ills that they have helpfully identified and defined for us to worry about. When that change doesn’t have the effects it’s supposed to have we are just presented with a new dialectic, and so the long worthless (to us) charade continues ad-infinitum keeping the general population confused and feeling helpless in the face of these continuing threats.

Yes, society is in danger of collapsing into a warfare/welfare state.

But,

Passing a load of anti-terror legislation has/will not change this.

Fail for the Hegelian Dialectic. That’s just one obvious example of the real time manipulation of our minds to evoke contradiction with authorities imprimatur.

We have this Terrorist threat that was always a manipulation from the start (There is ample evidence that false flag terror is a hallmark of the world of the spook or government intelligence agent)  being used to bring in all sorts of draconian laws of control and surveillance that have effected a shift in the way we think about ourselves and others. We are a lot more suspicious of people of a certain appearance, and increasingly, of certain attitudes and/or opinions. Has the world become a safer place because of it? Because the answer is heavily debatable means to me that these laws haven’t been effective for their advertised purpose. But I don’t think they were ever brought in for their advertised purpose. It is not sufficient that the legislators who penned these laws will always use the excuse of unintended consequences to explain the various inequities caused by their law making. Not sufficient because it is just more excuses to write laws that are as much unhelpful as they are effective in combating any real or perceived threat conjured by these legislators. Not sufficient because these people are given the job with the implicit understanding that they can mitigate such unintended consequences.

Not sufficient because these actions by our legislators are destroying the economy in the process.

Anthropogenic climate change is another example of a failing Hegelian dialectic. People are looking to the geological record and recognising that climate change is upon us with or without man made CO2 emissions so the governments argument for radical economic change is blunted. For me the correct path is to recognise that a lot of the industrial processes that we use to create our built environment are intrinsically toxic to us. These must be phased out if we are going to survive as a species not severely compromised by the proliferation of the myriad of cancer producing substances released by these industries.

Orica chemical company is one such organisation producing substances they cannot contain but are still operating with only a temporary shut-down and meagre fines to annoy them when they accidentally spray carcinogenic materials from their Port Kembla plant in NSW.  http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/backgroundbriefing/orica/3817916. or: http://www.sulphuric-acid.com/sulphuric-acid-on-the-web/Acid%20Plants/Orica-Port-Kembla.htm

I think we need much more affirmative action toward recognising and then mitigating these polluting industrial processes. Our governments focus on using the big economic levers to affect change look ever so good on paper but it has been shown that the reductions in CO2 levels will be negligible and can be circumvented because of the impossibility to regulate such a scheme effectively. It is really just a tax designed to prop-up the governments bottom line.

This is something that some will welcome and others not but I suspect for all the wrong reasons. I have no idea if we could survive without big government because of the enormous numbers of people already relying on a government cheque for their existence. Economies, being what they are now, a hybrid of globalisation and rank self interest, cannot be remade to fit a new untested paradigm. Individually we can only hope to resist the system that is causing so much pain.

Attack is futile and makes you appear the only aggressor when your opponent has overwhelming power and influence in a community.

Are West Australian politicians the ultimate form of rent seeking (low)-life? (Up-dated August 2014)

0

I bought the Saturday edition of the West Australian today and looked at the number of positions vacant for people with my kind of skills and qualifications (7 when there used to be over 40. Boom state?!? Always was a lie). I have a technical trade background and run and operate a micro-business in the housing sector. I have not had to read the sits. vacant for a number of years since I started my own business (and have managed to keep running) even though work has at least halved since the GFC hit in 2008/9. Unfortunately, the local economy is fading to almost nothing and I do NOT work in or for the resources sector in Western Australia, nor do I wish to after having worked on and off in that sector in the years before I started my own business. Hence my reckoning with the downside of the global financial crisis at about the same time as most other people in the West.

DON’T BE FOOLED BY THE LYING STATISTICS COMING OUT OF WEST AUSTRALIA.

People such as small business owners, like myself, know the reality behind the head-lies that come out of this state. We have just seen over 1000 workers sacked without notice from one of the states biggest resources employers (Fortesque Metals Group) which has now gone into a trading halt till next Tuesday because it lost 14% of it’s stock-market capitalization in one day. Due in no small part to the fact that they ONLY mine iron ore (with a slightly lower grade than their competitors, Rio, and BHP, rip out of the ground further north in the state), and that the price for that ore has dropped well below the $120 per tonne floor price that had been predicted not two months earlier. Coupled with the $10 Billion debt the company has to service means that unless the price of iron ore suddenly gets up near that $120 floor price again then we will be in even greater economic contraction than we already are as more and more projects are shelved with the money either going elsewhere or staying in the banksters mind, as yet, uncreated credit (debt to us).

Then we’ve got the Gina Rhineheart (of stone) Roy Hill Iron Ore mine that will be created, they say, with a workforce that will number up to 8000 at the height of the construction phase, of which, around 2000 will be imported from overseas in a special deal ratified by the state and federal governments (of which there are said to be up to a dozen similar agreements with other International Corporations in the country ready for activation). Rhineheart’s company has sold this agreement to the public in a fashion that obscures the fact that the max employment of the construction phase of 8000 may only be a short period with the crew dropping back to the near 2000 range for most of the construction. Meaning, of course, that most of the construction work could be done by overseas labor. There are many way to rort agreements in the IR sector here as it is a classic case of capture of the (weakened) government regulators by the so-called regulated (cashed-up corporations, hedge funds, etc.)

The government lies here that we have around 4% unemployed but this figure is hogwash when you consider that the government defines being employed, and thus do not turn up on the statistics, as engaging in 1 hour (or more) of paid work per fortnight! If the gutless cowards in this government had the strength of character to face this stark reality of massive underemployment then maybe we could start working towards a solution. But when the PTB wont even allow the situation to be acknowledged then we are forced to blunder on as blind fools at the mercy of these people and their agenda.

What’s that agenda, I hear you ask?

Having lived in WA for most of my adult life I have experienced all sorts of discriminating behaviors and to say the elite here are a callous bunch, typical of the conscienceless, would about as accurate as saying that the average Joe here is encouraged to be enraged over things that don’t really impact on them that much. Asylum seekers being one such issue. By that I mean that most people, even the rich and powerful, aren’t taught to be aware of the negative consequences of officially sanctioned activities in the economy and environment that they may be engaged in either financially, morally, or socially. In fact we are encouraged to be ‘exceptional’ with our own conduct in the market-place, yet to demand conformity from our competitors.

Of course, these cause and effect factors are telescoped away from each other in this sophisticated market economy so that the effect is that the miners of Uranium don’t have to be responsible for the disposal of the transuranic waste that it is turned into, is a perfect example.

Meanwhile, the real nasty economic levers are being pulled by these rent seeker political elite, and the fact we’re being crunched in the gears seems to go unnoticed. It’s certainly never portrayed as such in our media. In fact I find that any blog-sites that deal with West Australian politics are run by people with whom I find little or no common ground. In frustration I have started this blog to try and give a voice to how I see the economic/political/social situation unfolding in Western Australia.

I see Western Australia as being a case study in the application of the control methods of the Internationalists when given a free reign in a society that has been made placid and submissive to authority and indifferent to the suffering of others by being set up as a penal colony and decimating any native resistance over 200 years ago.

This has translated into a permanent underclass of mainly Aboriginal people and those others who live at the margins of the main economy. A main economy that is utterly dependent on the vagaries of the boom/bust cycles of the mining, oil, and gas super giant international corporations who care not a jot for the individual concerns of the communities they operate in. Sure, they make a big deal about all the money they throw at the locals while they’re there but once the resource has been depleted, and all that’s left are holes and badly rehabilitated tailing dumps and damns, the money that may still be accruing (if it hasn’t been embezzled or stolen because the oversight to these agreements was always to foment division and personal greed at the expense of traditional values and customs) to the local Aboriginals is not enough to rehabilitate their communities and mined land with any great success.

This is sadly reflected in the size of the Aboriginal prison population in comparison to the general prison population in that whereas they comprise about 4% of the overall population of the state, they represent about 20% of the total WA prison population. However, I hasten to add that with the West Australian economy tanking so alarmingly it shouldn’t be too long before a lot more of us are in prison on conviction for stealing to eat, or some similarly poverty induced crime. Unemployment benefit is so inadequate in this country it’s a cruel fucking joke. So for anyone to think that our ‘safety net’ is something to depend on for economic survival is either living on anothers largesse or they are one of the statistically small but significant portion of the population that are wired into the resources sector (about 5% of the states workforce are employed directly or indirectly by this sector). The rest of us, to a greater or lesser extent, have to fight for the crumbs that fall from the butchers table in the Premier’s office where the state is being carved up and exported to other countries. Where, of course, most of the value adding into the final salable/consumable product to be sold back to us is performed. Even the modules used in the states resource sector are made overseas and only given to us for final assembly. Often the workmanship has been found to be inadequate and/or unsafe and has had to be rebuilt at extra expense once delivered here for assembly. But that doesn’t seem to factor into the equations that these great International agreements are based upon.

These forces are draining the Western Australian state of it’s ability to grow and develop independently of the Internationalist corporations who are both figuratively and in actuality hollowing out this state for the disproportionate advantage of only a few. These are people who do not deserve what they have while the society they operate in is allowed to suffer due to inadequate funding of the essential services they need to have for a dignified and successful life.

So in concluding this, I will say that I have started the case for the affirmative that the politicians of this state are just rent seeking off of our hard earned and highly taxed incomes without improving our social and economic mobility one bit. In fact the reverse seems to be happening. This all occurring while the politicians suck off the tax-payer funded government teat and sell us down the river to International conglomerates (who usually pay very little or no tax on their profits because of ‘free trade’ deals made by these traitorous rent seekers). All the while bribing the government workers with job security when times are good (for them) and frightening them with forced redundancy when times are not. Compliance is expected and failure to submit is career death. Forever.

These are my personal impressions from Perth, Western Australia on this Saturday the 15th of September 2012.

 

Update:

It’s  August 2014 and I’ve just reread what I wrote then and can say that I still stand by all that I said and the sentiments expressed in it (although I did rewrite a little bit because it was confusingly written. Proof readings a bitch, eh!). Unemployment is now over 5% in the State and Barnett is doing things like allowing Chevron to house their workers on site rather than in Onslow where they would have contributed to the local economy much, much, more than will be the case now. The other side of this equation is that Chevron gets to control and monitor its employees 24/7. This sort of deprivation of personal freedom outside of working hours is too much for people like me to bare so I will never willingly take a job in this sector any more. Because these companies have effectively locked people like me out of their workplaces I have absolutely no qualms in saying they should pay a lot more for what they take out of our land and economy. I don’t see these multinationals as great innovators and growth generators. I see them as crushing the life out of the planet and turning it into paper money for themselves and waste, dislocation, and death for the rest of us.

You think that’s hard? I have clients that work in the mining industry and they are now working 14-16 hr shifts with terrible rosters so that the companies can get their product out at reduced cost. Being on a salaried contract their wage remains the same. Plus the plethora of overseas worker on 457 visas do even more for less and don’t complain. (no wonder that these companies want to hide their workforce from unwelcome, prying eyes and ears)

The cost to us so far this last twelve months; 9 deaths by suicide (official so the real number is probably much higher). That’s at least 9 extended families that will have been shattered by these deaths but we are taught to just treat them as another statistic that can be safely ignored because an ‘official’ has measured it. We can all rest easy now that we have a parliamentary committee looking into it. Good luck to them. I’m sure they’re really going to get to the nub of the problem with trying to turn your entire working population into compliant, unquestioning ROBOTS so the multinationals can extract their price from us all without even a whimper of protest!

I notice that we have the ex PM of Japan here in Australia giving talks decrying the use of nuclear reactors and uranium mining because of his experience of being in charge of the country on that fateful day , March the 11th 1011, when the earthquake and tsunami destroyed the Daiichi nuclear power plant causing three total melt-downs and melt-throughs which are still actively contaminating the whole of our planet.

However, the article goes into NO detail of the present condition of the plants.

It also doesn’t detail AT ALL how these substances don’t dilute and become harmless. They SPREAD and remain LETHAL if exposed to them by ingestion through the food supply or environment for up to millions of years! Plus the fact that radiation of this type bio-accumulates as it is concentrated up the food-chain. Think about the implications for future life on this planet. I do and I am damned if I’m going to throw all my knowledge down the drain for a few fucking dollars and accept that cancer is a inevitable outcome of living in the modern world.

So that’s why I put this link below so you can get some up to date information on the crisis at Fukushima.

Of course, to these pimps for nuclear power it’s a hell of a lot more than a few measly dollars! And I do mean ‘hell’! It’s what I believe should happen even if I have no way of verifying my theory!

We must shut down all Uranium Mining.

We must close all nuclear reactors and decommission them before they all end up melting-down because of poor maintenance, natural disasters, sabotage, or war. Fukushima is not contained and poses a present threat and ongoing danger to civilization.

Horserotovator doesn’t want the transuranic waste back from these mines so he doesn’t want the mines.
