900 Million dollar poverty enforcement scheme (work for the dole)

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-07-28/will-work-for-the-dole-increase-your-chances-of/5630302

From this article today, which you may have seen on television today if you watch ABC.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-07-28/government-reveals-details-of-dole-overhaul/5627660

 

Now watch the video again considering these details which you may have missed:

1) Food was being delivered to people who would otherwise go hungry.

This means poverty is severe and welfare is clearly failing. This generally means there are very limited prospects for employment in this area because money is simply not flowing in this community.

2) Tons of food was being transported,  in particularly vegetables and bread. Question is why aren’t these products being sold in supermarkets? Are supermarkets simply squeezing out  local manufacturers?

3) The young woman (Stacey Binns) was working for no payment.

This means no amount of work she was doing would increase her disposable income, and would not start money flowing in her community. Therefore what she was really doing was being forced to perpetuate the poverty in her community.

4) The young woman (Stacey Binns) quite rightly pointed out that there are hundreds of application for every job advertised. Her chances are slim of getting out of the poverty trap deliberately created around her.

5) This is one of 18 high unemployment areas around Australia where this scheme has been rolled out this month and already the federal government wants to expand the scheme further making it nationwide by July 2015.

6) The government will spend 900 Million dollars rolling out this scheme, that’s almost  enough to send a rover to the surface of Mars. It well known that these schemes are generally not successful and actually if anything reduce the chances of transition from welfare to work.

7) 900 Million dollars is enough money to give 18,000 people 50, 000 for one year, I think 18,000 people having a basics income would generate more jobs than a downward economic spiral. The almost 1 Billion dollars will be wasted on a variety of corporate scumbags lining up for a hand out while attacking people on benefits.

8) Work for the dole or ‘help and hassle’ welfare schemes only really function when the economy is super hot and unemployment is extremely low (2% or less), not when unemployment is well above 5%.

9) All of this has been tried before and even without the stipulation to engage in slave labor, when there are no jobs no amount of looking for them will be successful.

 

Proof? (Warning kiwi accents.)

I cant try any harder!

-A young man shows quite succinctly by canvassing numerous Auckland suburbs that the jobs were simply not there.

The clip is from a much larger series by Alistair Barry which you can find links to here:

Don’t be too impatient give it a few minutes, you are practically looking at a working crystal ball, everything you are seeing now in the Australian economy was tried in New Zealand 25 years ago. The result was a disaster, by the time the right wing neo-con government was voted out off office in 1999 , the economy was shrinking at 2% though strangely the government  statistics department was claiming it was growing at 2%. Though that is a separate scandal in itself which strangely got very little media traction. Of course this all happened while most western economies were booming, showing how much of a complete failure it was to improve the economy.

This of course was simply a tactic to reduce the average wage and introduce a whole new strata of New Zealand society to a lower standard of living ,and quite a  few to abject poverty. Interestingly this right wing government launched a radical slashing of welfare just after assuming office on a strong majority after a lack luster two term Labour government with leadership changes in the dying days, sounds too bloody familiar.

 

Inflation note:

For reference in 1991 $50 NZD was worth about $86NZD in today’s money. The inflation problems experienced in Australia in the 90’s had already happened in NZ in the 80’s. Food prices are comparable with Australian prices though meat is about 20% less expensive due to exceptional livestock rearing climate (fertile soil, lack of drought and neither too hot or cold most years). Beer and other alcohol is 50% cheaper due to much lower excises, personally I think if it wasn’t the country would be empty and Bondi  Beach would be full. New Zealand actually produces enough food to feed itself and all of Australia, a good reason to be in the good books with the bloody kiwis, or at least have a comprehensive invasion plan.

 

 

Jonathan Moylan avoids jail

 

Jono csg meme

http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/jonathan-moylan-avoids-jail-term-for-fake-anz-media-release-about-whitehaven-coal-20140725-zwwe7.html

 

Ok now, memes and MSM bullshit aside, did Jonathon Moylan do all that much damage to (ASX WHC) Whitehaven coal  ?

 

whitehaven analysisNot as much as you might think, WHC had been on the slide for 3 quarters before the ANZ corporate hoax. Investors dumping WHC in the previous 3 quarters had done more damage to WHC than Moylan. So effectively what Jono had done was arrive in time to see the rich obnoxious WHC house being burnt down by an angry mob and kicking in the letterbox while being cheered on the crowd of disenchanted. Of course a serious analysis might show this up but when you are underscoring the dangers of fracking (AKA CSG  AKA coal seam gas), But why let to many facts get in the way of good publicity. WHC had been under preforming the ASX 200 for several years, the business cycle, carbon tax, but even this being said its really hard to know how much damage a single well crafted rumor can do.

We are after all talking about Keynesian economics, with adherents who believe you can print fake money to appease animal spirits, which then magically repair an economy.

I couldn’t resist and it’s friday, for the tinfoilers out there, this video is from 1984, spooky.

For the OM hard core: which eviction was this song played at?

Sweden’s Political Correctness Insanity

It seems that Julian Assange is not the only victim of Swedish Government Political Correctness. When will people understand that just because something is bad (racism) doing the opposite is not necessarily good (Not allowing an opinion on cultural or religious practices of others.) Just because right -wing neo-con -liberals are assholes, it doesn’t mean that left-wing nut-jobs are not dickheads. It’s a bit like the Israel-Palestine conflict, if you are foolish enough to pick a side there, you haven’t understood the problem.

Let’s just blame white males instead. For everything. Because Hitler was a white male. Therefore….

Or , instead of letting yourself be sucked in emotionally like the Germans under Hitler, you could start to  think for yourself:  In the game of life,  the devil always finds a new disguise, and it’s not necessarily  what  you expect.

 

Here is an update from Pat Condell on the “Insane Asylum” formerly known as Sweden.

False dichotomy

A false dichotomy is a logical fallacy ( an illogical argument) which states there are only two option option A or option B. Clearly there are many possible choices for most questions. A perfect example is in every bottle store when one decides which drink one might like to have. If a situation is painted as having only two choices it is possible a false dichotomy is being offered. Given the choice of beer or wine, one might wonder why vodka or whiskey (or anything else) are not being offered. Some times political situations are  deliberately polarized to create the idea of a false dichotomy where such a binary choice is neither real or even helpful.

 

In Australian politics for a significant period of time the false dichotomy of Liberal(+National) vs Labour(+Green) has been not only offered, but even reinforced by the  STV voting system. The classic response to this has bee the third option the donkey (informal) vote. Of course this is people either disenchanted with politics or not fully understanding the system, but clearly represents an additional option. Funnily enough in the recent Australian senatorial president election there were two donkey votes, clearly they were deliberate as you couldn’t really expect two senators to not know how to vote. Well one donkey vote maybe was possible, but I’m not looking in my rear view mirror at anyone in particular. Sometimes such donkey votes are a protest at the futility of voting against such large voting blocks or even a subtle insult to an expected last place getter.

 

Sometimes geopolitical situations can be described at a false dichotomy by the puppet masters, particularly if it suits their purposes. Here is the last two ‘world’ wars and the real false dichotomy that was an likely still is in place. Of course if you attack the false dichotomy both sides of the dichotomy will be instructed to attack you, which ironically proves that it is a false dichotomy for all those awake enough to see through the cognitive dissonance.

chessboard false dichotomy

Of course sometimes the situation is so complex that making a dichotomy of it is not possible, though some people will try very hard and often limit and distort information in order to do so.

Islam and The Universal Declaration Of Human Rigths

Here are some of the main articles of the Universal Declaration Of Human Rights to which a number of countries, including Australia, India , China , most of Europe and South America voted in favour.

Article 1.

  • All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

Article 2.

  • Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.

Article 3.

  • Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.

Article 4.

  • No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.

Article 5.

  • No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

 

Article 6.

  • Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.

Article 7.

  • All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.

Article 8.

  • Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law.

Article 9.

  • No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

Article 10.

  • Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him.

 

A number of Islamic countries  originally also voted in favour of the declaration (whereas Israel did not), however, since the Eighties they have declared that the UDOHR contradicts Sharia Law (No surprises there, having your right hand chopped off for adultery is a violation of articles 2 and 5 , for example.)

 

From Wikipedia:

“In 1982, the Iranian representative to the United Nations, Said Rajaie-Khorassani, said that the Declaration was “a secular understanding of the Judeo-Christian tradition” which could not be implemented by Muslims without conflict with Sharia.[30]“

 

“What needs to be pointed out to those who uphold the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to be the highest, or sole, model, of a charter of equality and liberty for all human beings, is that given the Western origin and orientation of this Declaration, the “universality” of the assumptions on which it is based is – at the very least – problematic and subject to questioning. Furthermore, the alleged incompatibility between the concept of human rights and religion in general, or particular religions such as Islam, needs to be examined in an unbiased way.[32]“

 

Interesting that countries like China or India have also signed up and last time I checked they were not Western countries, however, their spiritual traditions like Buddhism, Hinduism and Taoism would be very much in accordance with the declaration of human rights, therefore refuting that it is a Western concept.

Of course every country is guilty of acting against the declaration of human rights, human nature being what it is.

What follows on Wikipedia is a good example of moral relativism :

A strong argument can be made that the current formulation of international human rights constitutes a cultural structure in which western society finds itself easily at home … It is important to acknowledge and appreciate that other societies may have equally valid alternative conceptions of human rights.”[34]

What rights are we talking about here? The right to kill unbelievers and apostates? The right to hurt, oppress and subjugate women in the name of religion and law? the right to imprison and torture people for private transgressions like “adultery” or marrying a person your family did not choose?

Why not the right to eat people and sacrifice babies for “Satanists”? Why not the right to rape 5 year olds for paedophiles?

Of course moral relativism in many ways is a good thing, as it allows people to express their individuality, creativity and culture.But when take to extremes, moral relativism becomes a license for harm, torture and murder.

Rules for life: Self esteem

The blogosphere delivers again. We get a lot of blog industry people follow us here, sure they are welcome to, but this very recent addition had such cogent and culturally contrarian point it was really worth sharing.

Nice work friend.

Kim Jong Un Threatens to nuke occupymelbourne

Kim Jong un Threatens to Nuke occupymelbourne.net

 

In bizarre turn of events North Korea’s 31 year old dictator threatens to nuke occupymelbourne.net . In his statement he explained given his recent remarks about Julie Bishop and Seth Rogen, he felt he needed to do some good to reduce the blowback for the west, “Yes I’m getting on the band wagon” he said, “What are you going to do about it?” He also stated the occupymelbourne.net’s recent decision to acquire a AC 130U gunship make him concerned  that occupymelbourne.net might become a regional power and needed to be neutralized before they became too powerful to buckle under to hollow threats.

Anti corporate: not anti capitalist

Recently the MSM went digging for quotes from original organizers who apparently wished to claim to be organizers but don’t want to identify themselves. These fools wanted to claim the Occupy Melbourne was an anti capitalist movement. When did I see it advertised as that? Never.

Just more bullshit from Marxists and their cronies trying to claim ownership but in a tangential way now that the name Occupy Melbourne is too hot to handle.

Occupy Melbourne was never Anti Capitalist

So to clear up the created confusion by a poorly researched initial two paragraphs we give you this:

1372173351242

So there you have it corporatism is a form of socialism, hence all the bank bailouts, another reason we went to occupy. So in reality occupy was an anti socialist protest that got infiltrated and sandbagged by socialists of various stripes.

1377186290240There were of course some rather lame claims of  this being a site for conspiracy theorists ( what a Nixon term ) so we leave you with the  god father of 20th century conspiracy JFK.  JFK decided it was time to start minting silver coins again through EO 11110 and then he was killed in broad daylight. Co-incidence? We’ll let you decide, we just wanted to make you aware of that.

We generally don’t promise or offer solutions, we just raise issues. Only you can decide and demand the world you want to live in.

Government paid troll caught in the act?

Hi JS, we have decided to not approve your comment as it is misleading and contained numerous errors.
Firstly we are not a socialist group, if you wish to review our thoughts on socialism please click the following link.

http://occupymelbourne.net/?s=socialist

You can use the search feature on the left to find our previous articles by keyword search. This media outlet has been the official media site of Occupy Melbourne since March 9 2013. The ‘.org’, twitter and facebook groups were hijacked and refused to respond to the wishes of the occupiers. We decided to remain anonymous to keep our ego’s out of the way of the message.

http://occupymelbourne.net/2013/03/09/a-new-media-team-in-the-shell-of-the-old/

If as a lawyer working for the government, you are going to post general disparaging comments against activist groups from your Facebook account from work when you are ‘working’ for the government, I really need to ask: Are you skiving off from doing your job or is this your actual job?

I mean seriously are you a paid troll? Because it really looks like it.

Or this this just massive cognitive dissonance?

If you know how to look through the media mayhem we produce you’ll realize we do some serious investigative journalism, that’s why when we talked about Mega Mosques in Melbourne the mainstream media listened.

Don’t ask how we know, but we have proof.
We suggest you reread you copy of 1984.

Should we expose the name of the suspected paid troll? We’ll do a poll from the comments to this article.
