Occupy Central Hong Kong

struggle for democracy

Some things never change, always have a good shield.

Larken Rose the plantation

 

Plainly explaining that its not freedom just because someone calls it freedom, it has to have the properties of freedom.

 

It harks back to Stefan Molyneux’s explanation ‘the world is a farm’  and ‘to know the farm is to leave the farm’.

 

 

Australia implements ‘Steve’s law’

Following pressure from a fringe religious group called ‘the servants of Steve’ , the Australian government has buckled to pressure from the group because of it’s control of Australia’s electrical distribution system.

Steve’s Law is a comprehensive legal system which in many ways conflicts with the constitution and many federal and state laws.

 

Death penalty:

• Theft is punishable by amputation of the right hand (above).
• Criticizing or denying any part of the Book of Steve is punishable by death.
• Criticizing or denying Steve is a prophet is punishable by death.
• Criticizing or denying Steve, the moon god of Steve is punishable by death.

Food:

• Meat to be eaten must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Steve – i.e., be Steve approved.

*All food must be Steve approved no matter who might eat it and Steve certification fees are collected by servants of Steve.

Perjury and dishonesty
• Servants of Steve should engage in being deceptive and lie to non-servants of Steve to advance Steve.

Marriage and family law.
• A servant of Steve who becomes a non- servant of Steve is punishable by death.
• A non-Servant of Steve who leads a servant of Steve away from Steve is punishable by death.
• A non-Servant of Steve man who marries a servant of Steve woman is punishable by death.
• A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.

Women basically have no rights:
• Girls’ clitoris should be cut (per Steve’s words in Book 41, Steve’s awesome book, Steve’s addendum 5251).
• A woman can have 1 husband, but a man can have up to 4 wives; Steve can have more.
• A man can unilaterally divorce his wife but a woman needs her husband’s consent to divorce.
• A man can beat his wife for insubordination.
• Testimonies of four male witnesses are required to prove rape against a woman.
• A woman who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s).
• A woman’s testimony in court, allowed only in property cases, carries half the weight of a man’s.
• A female heir inherits half of what a male heir inherits.
• A woman cannot drive a car, as it leads to chaos.
• A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.

=================================================================
Does it all sound too crazy?

If you replace electrical distribution system with petroleum supply, ‘servant of Steve’ with Muslim, and Steve with Islam/Allah it’s all actually correct.

Now how do you feel about Shari’a law and the demands for its creeping imposition.

This is why people fear the spread of Islam and mosques in Australia

3 colonies 3 polls: no change, hobbits unhappy

Scotland

No t Ye t
The UK probably only offered the independence option because they thought it would not  be taken up but once international market began to get nervous the hype machine had to get into overdrive to push it back in the box.It would be fair to say neither Scotland nor the UK were completely prepared for Scotland to leave with Scotland holding the oil assets and the (war) ship building, and the UK holding the currency, the pension funds and the national health service (NHS). Sort of like winning the lottery and thinking of leaving your wife only to find out she gets half of everything anyway, and the kids aren’t ready to leave home either.

On the positive side: more powers of self rule were offered in order to sway the vote back to the ‘no independence’ camp where it had looked dangerously lacking.

Positive side 8 years and no coup.

New Zealand

Despite mounting evidence of deep corruption in New Zealand political system  New Zealand returned a largely unchanged parliament,
and returned John Key formerly of the Federal Reserve Bank of the USA as its leader. The standard you walk past is the standard you accept.

Positive side: all the international based shills will now pull up stakes and fade out of the picture.

Negative side: Hone Harawira, a strong campaigner for the poor, appears to have lost his place in parliament.

And now we get to hear about all the ‘irregularities’ in these polls, will be very interesting.

 

Fun fact: all of the places discussed were or currently are controlled by the UK in some way.

NZ mass surveilance operational PM lied

Just a week from election in New Zealand It has been revealed that mass electronic surveillance has been occurring despite government denials.

While in Australian the debate has been about meta data, in New Zealand complete content has been spied on.

https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/09/15/new-zealand-gcsb-speargun-mass-surveillance/

John Key New Zealand’s current prime minister and former US federal reserve employee, made specific assurances that such spying was not occurring.

Will this hurt his election chances? Quite likely.

I was thinking of a serious look at 9/11 but I really didn’t feel like it. So for now something unrelated to this auspicious date, and somewhat more entertaining.

You should see something like this:

Abbott stop the boats simulator. Oh the LOLS.

Bendigo mosque wants to remove restrictions including opening hours, limits on political discussion and a cap on the number of worshipers.

Limiting political discussion in a mosque may be unconstitutional. Sorry I believe the  Corneloup case set the precedent for the occupy case,  the term burdening as not being interfering,  but sure demand a double standard.

Net Neutrality debate: prevent internet ransom

The internet

The internet

In the USA there is an on going debate about net neutrality which is a complex topic.

Basically the issue is large communications infrastructure providers are attempting to ransom content delivery companies for speed (bandwidth) or priority access to their own customers.

This is relevant for the world as many major internet services are hosted in the USA and reliant on their network policies and speeds.

Vi Hart ( who normally explains mathematical concepts ) gives a really good explanation of the net neutrality issue.

* Netflicks is an online movie service obviously reliant on good internet speeds.

IT students dwindle due to 457 Visa rorts

The IBM 5150 released on August 12 1981, this is where we get the term PC from and much of the basic architecture still in use.

So a few days ago ‘The Age’ (our local rag) ran a story about High school student abandoning  IT as a field of study.

The article was good enough, but the comments were an absolute goldmine of insight into the problems in IT in Australia

  • I have worked in the industry for nearly 20 years. The jobs are slowly disappearing to overseas cheap labour pools and imported 457 workers who claim to have the skills and are willing to work for far less than is reasonable.

    Why would anyone want to study a subject or career that clearly has a poor future in this country?

    Ask Telstra for example how many jobs they plan to send to “Asia” over the next year alone.

    • Ive been in IT for 35 years and its never been this bad, and its all a result of failed Government policies

      Offshoring and 457 visas have decimated Programming, Testing, Business Analysis, etc. The last project I was on there was a team of 20 people on 457 visas.

      Abbott has relaxed 457 visas so its only getting worse.

      If your thinking about a career in IT, you’ve got bugs in your head

    • Offshoring and 457 Visas are destroying/have destroyed the local IT industry. The hilarious thing is overseas workers come in on 457 Visas (weren’t they meant to be for positions where we don’t have the skills locally) and upon arrival they do not have a clue. They are shielded by the resident overseas workers to hide their incompetence. Projects are taking longer and have more bugs in them than ever before. And don’t get me started on their can’t say”no” issues.

    • Your right, overseas cheap labour, view source code and see note for example rajah said do it this way and that way etc, and upgrades to complex sites like TAB racing became worse and primate, upgrades to westpac BPAY atrocious enough for me to complain yesterday, but execs never check these upgrades nor are there customer complaint avenues. We see many script and hidden cache crashes via programmers not meeting updated flashplayer requirements and see new versions grow 10 times in size but do far less, excessive programming is excessive load. I think we need better quality training rather than worry about drop-out load

    • Yep, and as Telstra is trumpeting Magda Szubanski in its ‘we love our customers’ advert, it continues to ship customer support functions to Manila and elsewhere, and 457 visas appear to have become the latest immigration portal. Google, “457 visa to permanent residency” to see how much effort is being put into this channel. IT as a career choice in Australia? Only if you are really passionate about it, and prepared to fight to get ahead.

    • The Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s most recent 457 quarterly report put the average salary for applications granted to 457 workers in the Information, Media & Telecommunications sponsor industry at $87,200 and for the Professional, Scientific and Technical sponsor industry at $96,500. I am unsure how those wages are unreasonable.

    • I agree with all of the above. As an employer who is looking for client facing web developers. What a joke the so called ‘education revolution’ sausage factory has produced a whole lot of It paper graduates who will never get a real job in IT. More quality less quantity required. The reason is the ‘education revolution’ desperately needs new foreign paying students. Everybody knows most are going to be useless in the workplace. But the carrot is handing out visa’s and ultimately passports via this useless education. So tell your kids don’t even think about a career the government has sold them down the river.

    • @teh krazy
      The point is not the salary per se. The point is a 457 Visa should NEVER be granted to an IT worker as we have a plethora of qualified people here in Australia. The salary point is a whole other issue. If you have ever had anything to do with the outsource industry in IT you would know what most posters here are talking about.
