It was because Whoopi,
Jackson, Schumer, Beyonce, Clooney, DiCaprio, Lopea, Madonna,
Springsteen et al
leave if Trump were elected.
If they don't leave, can I take my vote back? I mean building a
wall is going to be expensive, but if it would keep them out that was
(Just kidding. As an Ozzie, I don't get to vote.)
The Donald is still
scoring. Even the elite journalists at fivethirtyeight
(aka "Valium for Liberals") now hesitatingly are beginning to admit it.
They have the reason wrong. Elitist journalists say it's dirty
trix by the FBI.
It's not the FBI. It's just that Hillary is a total loser, and
most of us do not want to be ruled by a loser.
Of course Trump is getting some
help from Assange and Rupert and the FBI.
- She lied and got found out.
- She got subpoenaed and tried (and failed) to kill the evidence.
- She screwed up Libya, (following Obama's tradition of total screw
up for the last seven years of the middle east.)
- Rupert is an example of why
the Anglosphere has been so successful over the past century or
more. He is a person with civic responsibility, and the PC elite
are not able to muzzle him.
- I wonder if Hillary is
regretting that she did not offer some sort of peace to Julian?
- And where was the media
outrage when the FBI didn't charge Hillary over destroying subpoenaed
evidence? Most ordinary people go to gaol if they do that.
Malcolm is skyting that he was the second foreign leader to
congratulate Trump. While it might go down well with some ozzies,
I think that so far as Trump is concerned, he is skatinhg on thin
ice. Now if he had talked to "The Donald" before the election,
like he did to Hillary, that might have carried more weight.
Oh, and btw Malcolm. I hope you have cleared moving our refugees to
the USA with Trump. I mean, I know that you don't need to if it
happens before 20th January, but I think you better dot all the
"i"s and cross all the "t"s.
28th November. More clues on why Trump won are leaking
out. Castro died, expatriates in Miami are celebrating, and the
media is wondering whether Donald's "opposition to Obama's improvement
in relations with Cuba will soften." First I heard of that, but
the rejoicing in Miami does help to explain why Florida went Trump.
I wonder what else wasn't brought to our notice by the elite's
"connected". The trouble for the elite is, money doesn't always
buy the best advice.
In an earlier incarnation, I
was teaching an engineering class of mixed nationalities.
Middle Eastern, Europeans, Americans and Ozzies.
Out of interest I posed the question: "Hands up those who think that
public access to guns makes society safer".
A few hands went up. I only asked one question. "Where do you
A Texan. And two Afghans.
Hey Donald. A suggestion. Reduce your overseas interventions.
Don't send soldiers. Send rifles (free if necessary!) like a US
version of the Kalashnikov that is simple to operate & low
maintenance. Send them to those people who are being oppressed by
Assert that the US second amendment applies not just to US citizens,
but to the human race.
With any luck the oppressors will become a little less repressive.
(and while you are at it, assert that the first amendment also applies
to the whole of the human race)
The Australian Broadcasting
Commission is a publicly funded (Over $1billion p/a) radio and TV
broadcaster. That is far too much (my share is
$1,000,000,000/20,000,000 which is $50 p/a, and that assumes that
babies are paying equal shares.) There was a suggestion floated
recently. Why not fund the ABC by subscriber donation? Surely
there must be a way of "taxing" by usage?
At the very least, there should be some sort of poll on the presenters,
and those who are not popular should be let go.
For my $50 I would insist that ABC "commentators" be forced to take an
IQ test. A bit like that suggested by Virginia.
The national broadcaster is only a small part of a sickness of our
society. That sickness can be generalized in the observation:
Any position of power will be controlled
by those who stand to obtain the greatest benefit from the exercise of
- Pollster organizations will be controlled by the media that
accepts money to form the opinions polled. Hence Hillary was
polled as the winner because she was spending most on advertising, and
the money the advertisers got was because they were (polled as)
- Politicians are elected by minorities who stand to gain the most
from asymmetric legislative treatment. So Developers seek control
of local & state government.
- Media personalities are employed for the opinions they hold, not
for their intelligence. For example the ABC hires journalists that
kowtow to politicians.
Mike Baird does appear to be all out providing development land to
developers. He makes the developer Mehajer (Mayor of Lidcombe)
look like an amateur.
The list of "gifts" is growing.
- Council Mergers calculated to put the major parties in control of
- Crown Land "gifted" to local government.
- Dog tracks sold to developers.
- The "Powerhouse Museum" in the old electricity generation power
station in Ultimo is to be moved from
it's prime inner city location and sold to developers.
The general idea seems to be get as much stuff to developers as
possible inside four years, get his mates to organize for favorable
press and don't really expect to be elected for a second term. ( Just
think how happy those developers would be for those windfalls!)
But then, maybe Mike thinks like Hillary. Maybe he thinks "we the
people" are idiots and will believe his narrative.
The results are in for the Orange bye election, and Mike Baird has
lost the absolutely secure National seat (Held by a 35% majority at
last election) to the shooters party. Pundits are ascribing it to
the Councils Amalgamation issue, with some credit to the Greyhound ban.
Don't worry Mike, you will be rich (in an ethical sense, having done
the right & moral thing) before the next general election.
You will be able to retire from politics, so IT JUST DOESN'T MATTER if voters are
