Category Archives: Plutocracy
Rule by the very wealthy, similar to Oligarchy, we use this term to mean both things even though they are slightly different. In many cases it is difficult the determine if a system is oligarchy or plutocracy.
The ABS consistently forecast wage growth, blissfully unaware of the effects of illegal immigration driving down wages an conditions. A more cynical mind might assume they were promising paradise while mixing the cyanide into the cool aid. Not sure where this chart was from, but its based on ABS data.
So what happened after 2007 you might ask…
Immigration jumped to more than double, almost triple the previous 30 years average rate.OF course this was coupled with illegal work permits and other rorting of the Australian taxpayer.
20% of the workforce are migrant guest workers
10% of the work force are migrant guest workers are in breach of their visa.

Worst of all this problem has been well publicized and nothing has been done, because government officials are complicit in the scam. All of this feed corporate profits by reducing wages and driving up bank profits by creating demand for housing.
Another good artile about this and with specific reference to the IT 457 visa rorting:
Due to inflation the base unit will replace the old $10 note, because of the cash bans if you spend more than 1000 of the new MilliCrime notes ($10,000 in the old AUD), you will have committed a crime and be sent to prison for 2 years.
We stole this artwork form the Chaser because we were going to pay, but cash is now illegal so it was too hard to complain with impossible laws so we resorted to crimes we were more familiar with. Sorry about that guys.
So in our race to the bottom of corruption legal and political system, we have a Royal commission head being accused of corruption, by the very people he is attempting to prosecute.
You really have to laugh at the system attempting to give itself legitimacy when its becoming blatantly obvious that every part is so thoroughly corrupt that there is no real hope for a reasonable settlement.
The unions have screwed their workers, the government is using the commission to attack political opponents but has been caught out stacking the commission with party lackeys.
Epic levels of hypocrisy form all sides.
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
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.
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
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.
The moment Tony Abbott coined this phrase it was yet another “suppository of wisdom” coming from Tony Abbott’s mouth.
It had ‘memebait’ written all over it. Fortunately SMH was on the job.
For those too young to know what this all means allow me to explain. (Adult themes and language)
Relevance? Today is the first day Australian warplanes began flying armed over the regions disputed by Syria, Iraq and Kurdistan (and of course the boogeyman ‘de jour’; ISIS).
In case there is any blow back, remember no one outside of the Australian political system voted for military intervention, If you want to blame anyone blame a politician.
Just a week from election in New Zealand It has been revealed that mass electronic surveillance has been occurring despite government denials.
While in Australian the debate has been about meta data, in New Zealand complete content has been spied on.
John Key New Zealand’s current prime minister and former US federal reserve employee, made specific assurances that such spying was not occurring.
Will this hurt his election chances? Quite likely.
