Describing the perversion of democracy

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.

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

Minister for employment when the program was announced,

under John Howard.

 

 

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.

Stop being polite, start being free

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.

Recognise that its a trap

It sounds like a good idea, lets all be friends on an equal footing all with the same rights. Certainly sounds fair, but we all didn’t get here at about the same time, by the same means , or in the same circumstances. Some of us have root going back thousands of years to the dawn of civilization, some just got off a gunboat 8 generations ago and acted like it too.

 

Think of it like this:

 

You are having a family party at your home, rather quiet, just the family.Then all of a sudden hundreds of people burst through the front door and literally start going mad, they tear up the garden and start selling your possessions and even start selling tickets to even more people that start coming. You keep telling them to all leave and that the house is yours and you didn’t invite any of them and they have no permission to be there. every time you complain the gatecrashers say you don’t have a ticket so what you say doesn’t matter. The people selling the tickets realize your complaints are hurting ticket sales so they offer you tickets for free just to shut you up.  The ticket is red and has a big white R on it. Do you accept the ticket? Do you realize accepting the ticket will really hurt you chances of a damages law suit against the gate crashers

 

See why its a trap?

See why its a trap?

Yes that’s right by accepting the R ticket you will be agreeing that you are just another gatecrasher and have so land-rights or any special historical connection to the land.

 

Yes it is a racist rights and real estate robbery, its signing up to be robbed.

Come on, lets be smart, if Tony Abbott really wants this it has to be bad for us, that logic works 9 time out of 10 regardless of what the topic is.

 

Get a treaty not a second class citizenship.

All roads privatised proposal

Of course this means that:

1) The roads will be sold off cheaply to the puppet masters corporations.

2) Roads will not be maintained.

3) No new roads will be built.

4) Your right to travel freely will be gone.

5) The road tolling system will be a means of universal surveillance

 

http://www.news.com.au/finance/money/every-road-in-australia-should-have-tolls-says-report/story-fnagkbpv-1227067053501

 

Of course roads can be built without a government, but why do that when you can get the public to pay for it, and then buy at cents in the dollar from the government you installed into office. Then of course ransom the general public for using  the roads they paid for, that y0u just stole off them.

Need  government to build roads? No. Need a government to then sell your roads to a private corporation? No. Makes you wander why tthe corporation didn't build the roads in the first place. Why not? Not economic, but stealing roads is economic.

Occupy Central Hong Kong

In response to China’s planned erosion of democratic electoral process in the SAR of Hong Kong  (China proposing to only allow their approved candidates to stand for election), an occupation has begun.

The people republic of China has always held democratic reforms as being dangerous and unpalatable and to this day many Chinese residents are completely unaware of  the Tienanmen square pro democracy protest from 1989 and the gruesome way in which it ended.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-29397738

Many of the protesters have taken to wearing eye protection with some using a improvised saran wrap (AKA cling film/ glad wrap) as a ‘better than nothing’ protection from presumably noxious gasses that may be released by authorities to break up the protest.

Thousands take to the street in Hong Kong in protest of Chinese government wanting to reduce democratic freedoms.

These guys are smart they are going straight to the heart of the beast, threatening to disrupt banking and finance in Hong Kong.
