pure gold, this really sums up the situation here.
Note: Paul Hogan the actor who played Mick Dundee famously had wars with the ATO over taxes on money he earned outside of Australia.
This should help explain why we feel so angry about Tony Abbott.
Before election day (the big date) he was saying “It’s OK if we just hold hands and cuddle”.
On budget day (the next morning) we were feeling violated.
Q: Is Tony Abbott earning $4 per minute?
A: Yes. Tony Abbott is earning more than $4 per minute.
Q: How did you work that out?
A: I’m pretty smart with maths and stuff.
Q: How did you get so smart?
A: Luck of the draw and avoiding Facebook and TV.
I wish we could all ‘do the heavy lifting’ like Tony Abbott and his family are.
Dad bringing home 500,000 per year with a guaranteed superannuation of 200,000 per year plus perks, Daughter getting a full scholarship to university, Mum used to work for the Rothschild’s (masters of of the financial universe) bank. Gee they are doing it tough! Well they would be doing it tough if the average wage was 2 million per year, but its not. This greedy pig has his snout in every trough and is as corrupt as they come. He has the audacity to talk about doing things according to the constitution. Well Mr Abbott, the Australian constitution I have read clearly specifies the penalty for treason as being, death by hanging. What is does not specify is where the culprit is to be hanged from. Honestly, it’s looking more and more likely that Tony Abbott will be the first sitting Prime Minister of Australia to be hung for treason, and I suggest that if we can’t hang him by the scrotum we’ll hang him by his ankle…until dead.
Old money is behind politics, as the puppet masters.
If a typical individual could learn how to do your job in two weeks or less, you are at serious risk.
In a disturbing turn of events protesters are using elaborate disguises to attempt to appear to be normal members of the community. In a recent incident one man ejected from the glorious prime ministers hallowed chambers had disguised himself as a priest and had even gone to the extraordinary lengths to have attended seminary school, graduated ,dedicated his life to God and even gained employment in a church and preached to congregations. Protesters are apparently pushing a radical political ideology called ‘Democracy’, which through bizarre convoluted legal smoke and mirrors, they are attempting to claim is part of the Australian political process.
We are seeing elaborate and desperate attempts to subvert the glorious 1000 year plan by the glorious twin visionaries of Abbott and Hockey. A purported man of God should not stoop to impersonating a priest for political means.

Guess what Australia, you are 30 years behind New Zealand!
A wave of shocked silence followed by jeers echos across the country…
Australians all angrily ask “What are we behind in?”
“Apart from Rugby Union and occasionally Netball we are not behind New Zealand!”
Only if it was so unimportant as sport, you might see whats really going on. You have been blinded by bread and circuses, or perhaps beer and footy.
Split Enz, from New Zealand in 1981, with a song written by Neil Finn, unfortunately history does repeat.
New Zealand, for decades, has been a social policy test tube for the western world. A small, largely isolated population that reeled from the Neo- con ‘shock doctrine’ of Chicago school economists.
Even more surprising was the fact that this hard core Neo-con agenda was run by the New Zealand’s Labour party, a political outfit more or less akin to the ALP in political ideology and electoral significance.
Well it would have been akin to the ALP, if it wasn’t for a few key individuals who drew inspiration from Thatcher and Regan who were in office at the time in UK and USA respectively.
Would you like to look into a somewhat tame version of what is happening now in Australian Politics with the Abbott/Hockey budget?
Have a glance at these somewhat surreal crystal balls, telling you a potential future for Australia from New Zealand’s troubled past.
If you do not watch these films, you only have yourself to blame when further nasty surprises happen!
Its worth pointing out that despite this film being made more than 12 years after the neo- con ravage and upheaval in NZ, it was effectively banned from NZ television until 2003, nearly 20 years after the events it portrayed. You might ask why, and that’s the exact question the New Zealand Government didn’t want its citizens asking. Citizens who were now being treated as units of economic production.
Another film by the same director (Alistair Barry) about the same events from a slightly different and more enlightened perspective, explores how the Reserve Bank of New Zealand was behind many of the initiatives. Curiously the director said his main inspiration for making the movies was he had so much footage that simply made him angry, and he had to understand why it make him angry, and what was actually driving the economic and social carnage witnessed.
Both of the films heavily feature television archives, which many New Zealanders would have seen as part of news broadcasts at the time of the events, some clips appear in both films because of the significant to both stories and the political history described.
Split Enz I walk away; 1984, from their last album.
Perhaps Split Enz saw the (economic) writing on the wall, splitting up in 1984 and temporarily moving to Los Angeles before morphing into ‘The Mullanes’ and finally ‘Crowded House’ and moving back ‘home’ to Australia.
The opening credits of this video sadly will not put to bed any lingering debate over whether Crowded House was Kiwi band or and Aussie band, as Hester had joined Split Enz before the remainder of Split Enz became ‘Crowded House’.
The best compromise to this sometimes confused friendly debate is best settled with this: Crowded House was a Melbourne band that formed in the USA from the remains of a New Zealand band.
Welcome to the confusion and dislocation of the shock doctrine and globalization.
And finally Crowded House ‘Weather with you’ from 1992. When the rapacious globalist corporations come, they bring the weather (and its not good weather).
If you don’t think it can happen here, this week should have been a wake up call, Chile was taken by surprise in 1973, as was New Zealand in 1984, will Australia wake up and get wise in 2014?
History does repeat.
What was once a purely New Zealand phenomenon can easily become completely ingrained in Australia, be it music or political ideology.
RIP Paul Hester
Any one even vaguely aware of politics has this week heard of the federal budget. As almost everyone is saying ” Wow, I’m really gonna get screwed”. It seems to be the type of budget that hurts everyone and those already struggling the most. Even members of the former Howard liberal government are calling it crazy.
It is a budget to fix a deficit that does not exist, to create a pretext to funnel more money to the corporate puppet masters.
Here at occupy we were telling you about the problem of corporate influence in politics years ago and this is exactly what we were warning you about.
This budget is treason pure and simple, fortunately the Australian Constitution gives us remedy.
