Tony Abbott resigns

I quit!

I quit!

In a surprise move the beleaguered Prime minister of Australia announced his resignation today.

Tony Abbott released this  statement to the press :

Its become clear to me my popularity is the lowest of any prime minister in Australian history. Modern democracy is really a fancy a popularity contest, and without the Murdoch press constantly spruiking and spinning every move I make, my position and lobbyist for various corporations and private interests is untenable. I have feathered my nest quite well in this time is politics but the game is up. It’s time to hand the mask to a new monster currently more palatable to the mindless masses we call the Australian public. I wish the next soulless opportunist to take on the captaincy all the best, as captain of this now sinking ship.

 

Framing a debate

It’s quite difficult to describe the way people can completely distort a topic by framing a debate. Just because I can explain it, it doesn’t mean you can understand it. Basically people can leave out certain parts of a discussion, because it doesn’t support the point they are tying to make, or their general overarching beliefs. Often it is deliberate, but sometimes an incorrect belief occurs because certain facts or observation are simply not known and the lack of information has framed the observation. Example, if a space alien landed on earth on an Australian beach in the summer, that alien might think people always wear beach wear, because its always hot. That alien might think everyone speaks English, wears rubber sandals, drinks beer. Of course the aliens observations are framed  by only seeing part of the picture. Of course we could also deliberately frame the observation and show the alien our science institutions to make the alien think we are smart.

Even really smart people can draw the wrong conclusions from a framed observation or debate. Its easier to explain with some pictures.

Something is going wrong here, I’m sure you have noticed the right side of the picture.

This is the same picture with just a little more added to the frame, suddenly your mind starts doing all kind of back flips trying to explain to itself what is wrong here  and what piece should be ignored or is perhaps some sort of trickery. The problem is you have been caught by the cognitive dissonance of your optical perception. Your visual processing wants to chop certain parts of the picture out because they fly in the face of a fundamental assumption, gravity. As you are struggling with this other piece start to seem out of place that you discounted before at being too trivial to worry about. Finally you realize you were tricked from the beginning, because you made an incorrect assumption from the beginning. Your world was literally upside down.

Back to normal, you were shown the world upside down and you almost believed it.

Back to normal, you were shown the world upside down and you almost believed it.

This is how powerful framing is in debates and information in general. You can be made to believe things fundamentally opposite to the truth and be quite certain of them, if you consider only some of the available information. So what trickery did I use to make those pictures? Just the cropping tool and a vertical flip of the picture. I could have done it with a few printed photos, a razor blade and ruler, a computer was not required and neither was anything complex.

 

Remember what just happened in your head and how it happened,

you are probably being fooled like this about a lot of things.

With recent scandals such as #Gamergate, censorship, moderation bias and the infestation of SJW moderators, The diehard politically incorrect  /pol/  users (AKA Polacks) have largely left 4chan and have set up their HQ in the rather new 8chan, also called infinitychan.

8chan was designed to look much like /pol/ did on 4chan and its is just as politically incorrect as ever. Its not a place for the weak of heart, stomach, or nerves.

Have you blood pressure medication in standby, along with you butt hurt cream if you dare visit 8chan/pol/ . You’ll read some interesting discussions which you will be able to take part in anonymously* (what passes for anonymously these days at least), you also read some complete crap and some really offensive things. You’ll read things there some people won’t wont you to read, and one of those people may be you.

It’s called freedom of speech,

and it also includes the freedom to be offended,

and offend others.

 

If the following video offends you, 8chan/pol/ may not be the right place for you.

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.

 

http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/ryde-mayor-bill-pickering-knocked-unconscious-at-putney-polling-booth-20150221-13l3sh.html

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.

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.

False Flag ?

Apparently the flag being held up at the Lindt cafe in Martin Place, Sydney has Arabic writing on it, although some people are already suggesting that that doesn’t mean anything and the perpetrators could be just random stupid people, rather than Islamic terrorists.

Well, there are plenty random and stupid people in this world, so lets have a look at some of the other options. For example :

peace flag

Which would suggest that these guys ware behind it:

hippie

But as that wasn’t the flag, it was probably not the hippies, although they are often random and sometimes stupid.

How about this one:

WEED-Continuous-Reggae-Mix</a

Which would suggest these guys:

jamaican-men-smoking

Too busy smoking, man.

Was it those flags :Prayerflags

buddhists

It’s always a possibility, but Buddhists are generally not stupid, so that would be surprising.

Clearly this guy is always to blame :my fault

Or his gay lover, this guy :

pope-francis-600

Mind you, we cannot prove they have nothing to do with it, but how likely ?

This leaves us with one more option:

no

Grumpy Cat loves to make people miserable, but would be too lazy to carry out such an operation. Plus she is pretty smart.

This actual flag in the window:

flag

Sometimes a flag is not a false flag.

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.
