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!

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.

Liberals try to dump Tony Abbott

Like turd that you kept around too long, Tony Abbott will be a pain in the arse until the end.

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.

Why Rainbow Serpent Festival sucks

I went to Rainbow Serpent Festival. Less than an hour later I left.

By the time they asked me for my ticket I was about to ask for a refund, the only reason i didn’t ask is because I knew they would refuse. I mean the place basically looks like a tarted up disaster relief camp. And just like a third world economy where one would expect such squalor the rulers of it all were taking in about a million dollar a day. Worst of all the only thing that people weren’t being forced to pay for was using the toilets. Showers $4, after paying $100- $300 just to be there they want you to pay for a shower. That’s real third world warlord stuff right there. Just really greedy narrow minded pricks at the top.

Why is it so shit?

Basically its microcosm of the world around it, the organizers know no real alternative vision apart from lining their own pockets.

Private fiefdom and police state

They actually searched every car going in creating delays and basically being obtrusive. They absolutely refused anyone to be able to cook for them selves no fires no gas bottles.

Of course this is so they have a captive market for food stalls that they can get ground rent for. Absolutely no one could sell anything with out permission and paying the fee in order to do so.

Poorly organized

An hour waiting to get in.

Their schedule (a glorified excel spreadsheet) lists sunset at 5:30, really?

Overbearing  rude security guards

These fucktards seem to get off casually throwing out dictates at whim and generally mouthing off.

fuck off signs every where

After the onslaught of an hour waiting to get into the place the rude security guards and the fuck off signs seemingly everywhere ( artists only, organizers only) you then realize it nothing more than a small closed and controlled economy. The only respite from miserable oppression would be getting drunk and stoned, but sadly not even this is safe with police patrolling and waiting to pounce on people with drug and booze buses

Inviting the police to a festival where people like to use recreational drugs

WTF were they thinking. They were thinking the police are just another group to sell off the ticket holders too.

I mean because I’m connected I got a free ticket but seriously why would any one pay $100- $300 to go to a festival which is basically a command economy and fascist police state with no flushing toilets.

 

Forget Woodstrock or Isle of Wight, there is no chance any current festival in this country will spark or be a magnet for counter culture, these places are just a place for hipsters and Trustafarians to preen then selves and strut around, its all really sad. It rather pay $25 for a private underground bush doof than a wank off festival.

Long Live Free Speech!

If we do not allow free speech where do we draw the line as to what is offensive and what isn’t?
