Official NSW Government Racism

Here's a nice bit of state approved racism.

Why don't they say that whites, asians and africans etc need not apply?

Get your Poo Log an iPhone app you can't do without

I listen to many different podcasts, however here is an excerpt from one I've just come across

"Reach your full potential with the Poo Log, an iPhone and iPad app that'll have you loving your leavings. Poo-per. Odorless, eco-friendly Poo Poo Paper helps to keep elephant, horse, cow and panda potty out of the waste stream. (Thanks Ashanti!) Hip News Zone defense. "

Here's the link to it - http://www.podcastalley.com/podcast_details.php?pod_id=4787&allEpisodes=

Sounds a mastubatory hippie wank fest to me. Might be worth a listen, if only to confirm my idea that these people are mad.

A Bit Too Expensive But It's Great

Over $3000 at the moment but these electric scooters could really take off. When the Chinese start to make them watch the price drop.

Gutsiest Workers Ever

There is no way I would do this. I just don't know how anyone would be paid enough.

Less Government Can be Ok, Maybe even a Good Thing

People often think that we need government, well we do but not nearly as much as you may think. Too much government excludes and discourages those groups that naturally arise in a society. Too much gov discourages charities or turns them into groups wanting handouts.

Strange Video Clip For Such a Popular Song

This clip looks like two slightly drunk girls who liked the song at school and practised their dance moves to it and made their own film clip. Terrible background, dresses and dancing. I'm not really sure why the girl in the white dress is even there.

Ronald Coase - Great Short Essay

"This separation of economics from the working economy has severely damaged both the business community and the academic discipline. Since economics offers little in the way of practical insight, managers and entrepreneurs depend on their own business acumen, personal judgment, and rules of thumb in making decisions. In times of crisis, when business leaders lose their self-confidence, they often look to political power to fill the void. Government is increasingly seen as the ultimate solution to tough economic problems, from innovation to employment."

Wind Turbines Not Just Useless But Bad For Everyone.

From Spiegel

"If there is too much power coming from the grid, wind turbines have to be shut down. Nevertheless, consumers are still paying for the "phantom electricity" the turbines are theoretically generating. Occasionally, Germany has to pay fees to dump already subsidized green energy, creating what experts refer to as "negative electricity prices."
On the other hand, when the wind suddenly stops blowing, and in particular during the cold season, supply becomes scarce. That's when heavy oil and coal power plants have to be fired up to close the gap, which is why Germany's energy producers in 2012 actually released more climate-damaging carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than in 2011."

If you add in the use of rare sand mining in China, the CO2 produced in their construction and installation and the decommissioning costs. Every time a turbine goes up we are worse off. All we can do is hope that the next government has the balls to get out of them and discourage their use.

Where are the Anti Bush/Howard as Warmongers Lefties Now?

Another Reason Why The NBN is a Colossal Waste of Money

From Next Big Future - 5G Wireless Networks operating at up to 50 gigabits per second will be in service by 2020, just on 6 years from now.

Right now more and more people use wireless devices, hard wired desktop PC's are on the way out.

But that genius RUDD and his crew of brains trust worked out the NBN on the back of an envelope and are spending billions on building something that is almost obsolete already. By the time it's built it will be a museum piece.

Yet 47% of the population will still give Labor their first vote.

Vale - Chris Lane

Two of my oldest and dearest friends have lost their only son in a senseless violent act. Chris was a fine young man his death leaves a gaping hole in the lives of all who knew him. I'm unable to express myself further.

GILLARD and RUDD Have left All Australians $13,000 a Year Worse Off

From Todays Herald Sun

"After the 2010 election, prime minister Julia Gillard expanded Kevin Rudd’s agenda. The people-smuggling industry, climate change complex, trade union movement and public service, which expanded by 13,000 full-time positions, enjoyed enhanced patronage at great expense to the wider population.

Indeed, to pay for these ideological flights of fancy, Australians have picked up an open-ended tab currently running at more than $13,000 per person. That’s from zero in six years. For a family of four, this is equivalent to an unwanted debt of more than $52,000 with little tangible to offset for it."

That $13k hasn't bought anything, hasn't built a project just $13k a year on ongoing wages and costs for nothing of benefit to Australia.

You can always count on Labor to piss your money away. Eventually you run out of other peoples money look at Detroit.

Hilltop Hoods

Just so you don't think I hate all new music. The Hilltop Hoods got it right with this.

Flying Circus "La La"

Aussie bubblegum rock from 69, really good for what it is. I can't imagine how a song like this would be made now.

Bertrand Russell Knew That All Other Political Systems Are Worse Than Capitalism

Capitalism isn't perfect nothing is. However it and it alone leads to an improvement in everyones well being.
From Kids Prefer Cheese.

(Okay, not exactly ON Hayek, but it is rather Hayekian.  The timing doesn't work out very well, since this was published in 1912.  But who knew that B. Russell was a proto-Austrian?)

From Proposed Roads to Freedom (1918): "We come next to the consideration of the economic power of the State and the influence which it can exert through its bureaucracy. State Socialists argue as if there would be no danger to liberty in a State not based upon capitalism. This seems to me an entire delusion. Given an official caste, however selected, there are bound to be a set of men whose whole instincts will drive them toward tyranny. 

Together with the natural love of power, they will have a rooted conviction (visible now in the higher ranks of the Civil Service) that they alone know how to be able to judge what is good for the community. Like all men who administer a system, they will come to feel the system itself is sacrosanct. The only changes they will desire will be changes in the direction of further regulations as to how the people are to enjoy the good things kindly granted to them by their benevolent despots. 

Whoever thinks this picture overdrawn must have failed to study the influence and methods of Civil Servants at present. On every matter that arises, they know far more than the general public about all the definite facts involved; the one thing they do not know is "where the shoe pinches."

Clever Women Don't Breed

From Dissecting Leftism

" *  With each increase of 15 IQ points, a woman’s urge to reproduce is diminished by 25%.

 *  The average IQ of women who want children is 5.6 points lower than those who don’t want them.

 *  Among all 45-year-old women in England, 20% are childless, but this figure rises to 43% among those with college degrees.

The paradox is that women who are measurably more intelligent based on IQ tests are dumber in terms of evolutionary survival instincts"

Russell Morris

One of the greatest Australian musicians of the past 40 years. He has a great live show, catch if you can. I love this song, Graham Bonnet did a great version of it but Russell nails it and to think he's over 60.

Why a University Education Will Ruin The Way You Think

Most people can feel the disconnect between our 'Elites' and the rest of us. The Labor Party and the Greens are prize examples of those who believe in "Do as I say, don't do as I do". How did we get to this point? Where the elites in general hold views and opinions that are far apart from the average person?

Here's a precis of a great book that goes a long way to explaining how we got here.

http://www.quadrant.org.au/blogs/qed/2013/08/roger-sandall-more-right-than-ever

"I want to begin by telling you what I think is the real aim of a university education…I believe that someone is well educated only if he realizes in great detail how little he knows. And I think that this is really very important. I think that a man who has the feeling that he knows a lot is somehow badly educated. Yes, one can know a lot, namely, about all the problems and theories that have arisen owing to the growth of our knowledge…And the main point, at least with regard to pure knowledge, is to recognize the many open problems that lurk in all the knowledge that we have achieved. Without that I would say that you are not really educated."

Daughters - Little Rays of Sunshine

I'm fortunate enough to have three beautiful daughters as well as three handsome sons. This song always gets me sentimental about the girls whenever I hear it.

The Current Holocaust That The West Ignores

 "In 1900, twenty percent of the Middle East was Christian. Today, less than two percent is."

The Muslim world is engaged in an ongoing program of extermination of Christians, Jews and other religious people. The UN doesn't mention it, the media ignore but it's going on everyday.

"According to one estimate, a Christian is martyred every five minutes. And most of this persecution is taking place at the hands of Muslims. Of the top fifty countries persecuting Christians, forty-two have either a Muslim majority or have sizeable Muslim populations"

Read the whole thing here - 

"Christian Tragedy in the Muslim World"


The Islamic terrorism that affects the west is part of this program of death and domination. The Muslims are patient and hard working. At some point the west may come to it's senses and fight back, but until then people die everyday for what they believe. They are not the ones coming to Australia and claiming 'Asylum'.

Maudlin 70's

This song wasn't one I liked but there is something about. Anyone remember this playing on the car radio?

More songs of the 70's

I know that I'm a product of the years I grew up in. I just can't stand most (not all) current music. How can it get any better than this.

I like one of the comments on the youtube site re this clip. "Why do 60's and 70's chicks look so much hotter than todays looking skanks?"

Sad but true, modern music seems to be dominated by tattooed fuckwits and slags with metal sticking out of their faces (plus the whoremarks).
