Billions wasted on job search fraud

ABC 4 corners investigation has uncovered the amoral gamification of government contracts purported to offer job seeker assistance.

This video may not be available after march 9 2015 so get in fast.

Forging and falsifying documents seemed to be industry standard practice.

Specific rorts uncovered were:

Categorizing people into more at risk categories in order to get more funding.

Claiming payments for assisting job seekers into work even when the job seeker was not assisted.

Funneling job seekers into in-house training courses  order to claim a training payment, often the training was low quality, inappropriate or never actually provided.

 

What is more shocking was successive governments were aware of the widespread fraud and waste but did nothing to punish the fraudsters.

So a total of 18 billion dollars was spent on this program, conservative estimates are that about half was fraud by the contracted  agencies.

18 billion dollars spent over a 16 year period is a lot of money, what else could be done with such a sum.

In November  1960 President Kennedy was elected and quite quickly promised to have a man on the moon before 1970.

In the period of 1961 and 1969, 34 billion dollars was spend on getting man on the moon.

So effectively we could have had half a moon landing for the price of the wacky ideologically driven ‘be mean to the battlers’ program.

The original NASA moon landing from 1961 to 1969 cost 34 billion dollars. Australia waste about half this amount harassing unemployed people in the early 21 century and has not landed a man on the moon.

The original NASA moon landing from 1961 to 1969 cost 34 billion dollars. Australia wasted about half this amount harassing unemployed people in the early 21 century and has not landed a man on the moon.

So who is behind all of this, who else Tony Abbott,

Minister for employment when the program was announced,

under John Howard.

 

 

Abbott whip it and shake it off

 

After divisive party spill (leadership) vote Tony Abbott effectively shoots the messenger by sacking party whip Phillip Ruddock. Even Opposition parties were taken aback at the apparent knee jerk reflex of Tony Abbott’s faction, dishonoring a well liked and long serving parliamentarian.

 

 

 

As the bad press around Abbott mounts, one can only imagine he is simply living in a self constructed fantasy land. Having bee initially endorsed by the media tyrant Rupert Murdoch, he has now completely ‘Jumped the shark’  now being criticized by the very same Murdoch.

Sydney mayor KO’d at polling booth

The puppets are fighting again.

The puppets are fighting again.

It really goes to show the circus politics descends into. The system is based on two things that you will see again and again;

1) it is based on violence

2) the rules don’t apply to the rulers and their puppets.

Look at how they behave. Honestly you can make this stuff up.

 

This is your ‘democracy’ in action.

Ryde mayor Bill Pickering has been knocked unconscious and taken to hospital after tensions erupted at a polling booth for a council byelection on Saturday.

Cr Pickering was handing out ham sandwiches at Putney Public School when he was allegedly confronted by independent candidate Vic Tagg, according to deputy mayor Roy Maggio, who witnessed the incident.

Cr Maggio described the punch as a “king hit” which caused Cr Pickering to fall backwards into a garden bed, at which point he began to have a seizure.

Voting was under way at the time for the East Ward byelection, which was triggered by the resignation in December of former mayor Ivan Petch, who was found by ICAC to have engaged in corrupt conduct.
It is understood Mr Tagg, who is a former mayor of Ryde and former-Liberal councillor, had been talking to voters at the booth and describing the Liberal party as “corrupt” before he allegedly approached Cr Pickering and punched him in the jaw.

Both Cr Pickering and Cr Maggio are members of the Liberal Party. Mr Tagg is currently the president of the Chamber of Commerce and chairman of Ryde-Hunters Hill Life Education. He unsuccessfully ran as an independent candidate for the East Ward in the 2012 Ryde City Council elections.
Independent candidate Vic Tagg.

Police and ambulance were called to the scene and Cr Pickering, 52, was taken to Ryde Hospital.

He is in a stable condition in hospital, where he has been put in a neckbrace and is awaiting the results of scans to determine the extent of his injuries, according to a person close to Cr Pickering who did not wish to be named.

Cr Pickering has also given a statement to police from his hospital bed.

Mr Tagg allegedly left the school after the incident and could not be contacted on Saturday afternoon.

Cr Maggio said a “sombre” mood descended on the polling booth after the incident, and that most of the other candidates left the site soon after.

Police are investigating the matter and ask anyone with information that has not already spoken to police to come forward.

Mr Petch, who was suspended by Local Government Minister Paul Toole, resigned in December after his Supreme Court challenge to the ICAC’s corruption findings failed.

The ICAC also recommended the Director of Public Prosecutions examine whether Mr Tagg should be pursued for breaches of campaign donation laws.

Welcome to fantasy legal system island

That's right two images of Plato, yes it should have been Socrates but hey look Da plane! Da Plane!

That’s right two images of Plato, yes it should have been Socrates but hey look Da plane! Da Plane!

 

The legal system, oh don’t make me laugh it would be more funny if peoples live hadn’t been ruined by it. It tries to appear so austere and pensive with careful debate and reasoning, but that’s just what you saw on TV or some movies. Since you watched so much TV I’ll put in terms you understand better, In reality the legal system is like fantasy island for the lawyers, police and courts. For you its complete dystopia, until you can find the cracks in the facade and start poking around with the set and props. Then the cast of the show start to get worried that every one will think its fake and the fantasy will be exposed and loose its power. The cast of the show see their own fantasy island as the only way they live or would want to live so if a few stupid extras get thrown off the show its all OK. If you are an extra and you are thrown off the show that’s probably a good thing, because you have been ejected from a dystopia.  Don’t be part of their fantasy, don’t play their game, start learning where they are creating the illusion and where the critical misdirection is allowing them to frame the shot. Remember you live in the real world they don’t, pull them back into the real world as much as possible, the real world terrifies them.

The fantasy island legal system is based on provable untrue statements, and if you can bring up these fantasies, the whole illusion collapses.

 

Look a bit harder and try to figure out the details, because they matter.

Their fantasy is your nightmare.

Sub prime mortgage crisis explained

I’m sure there are a few people other there really not sure what the sub prime crisis was, or what caused it to occur.

How did so many supposedly smart financiers and bankers get sucked into it, or where they knowing and willing participants, feeling that they were not going to be held liable.

I must admit if you use the language of the accountants, lawyers, banker and government its really hard to decipher what actually happened and who was at fault.

What you do know is you got shafted but you aren’t exactly sure how this happened.

Help is at hand.

Here is a really good common sense explanation of what happened using a small pub as an example. This analogy is approved my our economics adviser as ‘more or less what happened’.

===

Mary is the proprietor of a bar in Dublin. She realizes that virtually all of her customers are unemployed alcoholics and, as such, can no longer afford to patronise her bar.

To solve this problem, she comes up with a new marketing plan that allows her customers to drink now, but pay later. She keeps track of the drinks consumed on a ledger (thereby granting the customers loans).

Word gets around about Mary’s “drink now, pay later” marketing strategy and, as a result, increasing numbers of customers flood into Mary’s bar. Soon she has the largest sales volume for any bar in Dublin.

By providing her customers freedom from immediate payment demands, Mary gets no resistance when, at regular intervals, she substantially increases her prices for wine and beer, the most consumed beverages. Consequently, Mary’s gross sales volume increases massively. A young and dynamic vice-president at the local bank recognizes that these customer debts constitute valuable future assets and increases Mary’s borrowing limit. He sees no reason for any undue concern, since he has the debts of the unemployed alcoholics as collateral.

At the bank’s corporate headquarters, expert traders figure a way to make huge commissions, and transform these customer loans into DRINKBONDS, ALKIBONDS and PUKEBONDS. These securities are then bundled and traded on international security markets. Naive investors don’t really understand that the securities being sold to them as AAA secured bonds are really the debts of unemployed alcoholics. Nevertheless, the bond prices continuously climb, and the securities soon become the hottest-selling items for some of the nation’s leading brokerage houses.

One day, even though the bond prices are still climbing, a risk manager at the original local bank decides that the time has come to demand payment on the debts incurred by the drinkers at Mary’s bar. He so informs Mary.

Mary then demands payment from her alcoholic patrons, but being unemployed alcoholics they cannot pay back their drinking debts. Since Mary cannot fulfill her loan obligations she is forced into bankruptcy. The bar closes and the eleven employees lose their jobs.

Overnight, DRINKBONDS, ALKIBONDS and PUKEBONDS drop in price by 90%. The collapsed bond asset value destroys the banks’ liquidity and prevents it from issuing new loans, thus freezing credit and economic activity in the community.

The suppliers of Mary’s bar had granted her generous payment extensions and had invested their firms’ pension funds in the various BOND securities. They find they are now faced with having to write off her bad debt and with losing over 90% of the presumed value of the bonds. Her wine supplier also claims bankruptcy, closing the doors on a family business that had endured for three generations, her beer supplier is taken over by a competitor, who immediately closes the local plant and lays off 150 workers.

Fortunately though, the bank, the brokerage houses and their respective executives are saved and bailed out by a multi-billion euro no-strings attached cash infusion from their cronies in Government. The funds required for this bailout are obtained by new taxes levied on employed, middle-class, non-drinkers who have never been in Mary’s bar.

Now, do you understand economics in 2015?

Worst of all this could still happen to other parts of the economy, including the monetary system, your cash in hand could suddenly become as worthless as a 2006 sub prime CDO.

Newman and Liberal roadkill in QLD state elections

Newman loss qld tagged

You have to say it the Queensland voter really knows how to about face. In dramatic fashion Campbell Newman is tossed out of  State parliament losing his seat, his party has lost majority and ALP are mustering up their last votes and confirmed  seats looking to rule in their own right. Of course this comes in a week where significant bad press beginning to stick to another prominent liberal party politician, ‘Prime Minister’ Tony Abbott.  So the backlash begins, and soon enough the Marxists will be wafting smelling salts under Stalin’s nose as we need a strong man to make a ‘road to serfdom’ work for us.

 

Malcolm Turnbull and Mal Brough are names being bandied around as possible replacements for Tony Abbott, who ironically made much capital of the Rudd-Gillard-Rudd (again)  leaderships merry go round.

Tony Abbott will be gone in less than 60 days, the real bets are on who to replace him and how to make it more appealing to a voter base in backlash mode.

Tyrants love exploiting human decency and  rules of etiquette, stop giving them this latitude and start restating the rules, no exceptions.

The majority in a democracy do not pander to the minority, doing so is more common in despotism. So if you want despotism keep pandering to the extreme minority.
