The rights of citizens have been abolished.

Welcome to 2016 – You are now a corporate slave with no rights. The TPP removes legislative authority from Congress and the White House on a range of issues. Judicial power is often surrendered to three-person trade tribunals in which only corporations are permitted to sue. Workers, environmental and advocacy groups and labor unions are […]

Corporate obscenity writ large

“THREE days after two giant mining dams burst in central Brazil in the largest spill of its kind ever, haphazard rescue efforts struggled to reach remote villages swamped in the deluge of mud, as the death toll rose and criticism of the mining companies mounted.” Australia’s BHP Billiton caught in an idiotic PR blunder when […]

A slave with accommodation

So the Government debt of providing you an education (That you were charged taxes to cover) is now personal debt not Government debt. You paid double for that education Buster! But it does delay the Government going bankrupt. When it all hits the fan, the Government walks away telling the USA creditors that it’s now ‘YOUR […]

P T Barnum’s Ghost

“In particular, Russia and China have been accused of not following the principles of the global order: peaceful resolution of disputes, freedom from coercion, respect for state sovereignty, and freedom of navigation.” Some clown (US Defense Secretary Ash Carter) actually thinks he’s PT Barnum reincarnated and we’re the suckers to fall for his spiel.

Mummy – I’m a Commie now!

“According to Associated Press, Russia and China are challenging “American preeminence” and Washington’s so-called “stewardship of the world order” as they reassert themselves on the international arena as serious military powers.” Being ‘Non-American’ I don’t recall being consulted on the sellout to American preeminence nor any ‘World Order’. A 10 second recap : It was […]

Migrant flow to Europe is result of US, EU military ops in Middle East – Czech president The flow of immigrants to Europe stems from the Western states’ military interventions in Iraq, Libya and Syria, which have contributed to the emergence […]

All worthless in the real world

Buried away in the small print was this gem : The ANZ makes almost $350,000 of profit for each of its full-time equivalent staff members. But no pay rises for staff, ever increasing pressure to sell consumer debt or “You’re fired” are the conditions of modern day serfdom. The other gem was that they make […]

Trade a Porsche on a garbage truck

Only 1 per cent of dwellings within the Melbourne municipality are considered affordable to people on welfare payments. Tents pitched on a balcony and in the corner of a living room are being advertised to renters from $390 (NZ$410) a month in one of the more outrageous signs of Melbourne’s desperate rental market. Yet another crazy […]

50% of all renters can’t pay the rent

The real cost of the trickle down theory – More proof that it simply does not work. In New Zealand this week : “The Government subsidises half of all rentals right across New Zealand. So we get to see the hard edge of the housing market,” English said. 50% of all renters require Government assistance […]
