The earth is shifting right before our eyes

The number one conservative rule of governments is never trust them. They love the power and they love the status and they know what’s best and to them you are a cypher, a nuisance at best but most of the time a problem to be dealt with. What I worry about with the web most of all is that because we can discuss what is happening and are allowed to laugh at it, then it’s not so bad and we will be able to continue as we once did. Yet the earth is shifting right before our eyes and once these freedoms are gone we may never be able to get them back.

    All this hip young kids who voted for the great libertarian hope B. H Obama are feeling a mite stupid.

    His approval rating with voters under 30 dropped 17 points in the last fortnight.

  2. Ant

    That, is a superb statement.

  3. Gab

    Hey, no problems. Only 3.5 years of the Obama regime left. What else go they do in violation of the Constitution?

    His approval rating with voters under 30 dropped 17 points in the last fortnight.

    Truly? Wow… I guess there’s some hope for change after all.

  5. C.L.

    It’s actually a very good point.

    The net as bread ‘n circuses, as steam valve – but, ultimately, as irrelevance re freedom.

    That’s what I discern in the Tony Abbott moment. So much internet support for the ouster of his opponent but – in the end – he regards the things we care about as inconsequential.

    Like property rights, for example.

    “The drop in Obama’s support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition,” says CNN polling director Keating Holland.

    What else go they do in violation of the Constitution?

    Well, not quite in violation, but I would have imagined that if they could keep Bambi’s attention span off of his golf handicap, the Obama machine’s own – ummm – faction (?) Organizing for America would have launched a move to repeal the 22nd Amendment, which limits a POTUS to two terms.

    But checking the Wiki, it seems various Democrat grandees have been seeking to do just that on a regular basis anyway.

    But I imagine the revelations of the last few weeks may have derailed that thought bubble, and the Dems will be working hard on the 2014 mid-term elections instead.

    Yep and it’d be, like, soooooooo different if the bunch that were in before were still there yeah?

    Yep you think so doncha. At least them hip kids are feeling stupid. You’ll never feel that way. You’re too, um, stupid. 🙂

  9. Jim Rose

    jon stewart is always very funny and a good example of how to do political satire.

    I can only imagine you’ve shoved a pencil too far up your nose or been involved in an industrial acident. WTF are you dribbling on about you, hipster doofus?

    “This storm will pass..”
    Nah mate, not a chance, not in lifetimes…..the statist fascist progressives have just begun to enjoy their victory.
    The long march thro the Institutions is bedded, the MSM are as one, the primary and high school education system is captured ( Gonski is essentially merely about rewarding the comrade apparatchiks with higher wages)……when even the pretend conservatives are LibLabs, they’ve won.
    A temporary victory on Gillard is nothing long term…..a Labor disaster STILL gets her 43% tpp .
    Welfare Statist Tony will try to be the unionists friend……terrified as he is of shadows…….

    Time to leave.

  12. Lucie

    He puts our leftist ‘comedians’ in the shade.

  13. jupes

    The long march thro the Institutions is bedded, the MSM are as one, the primary and high school education system is captured …

    … and the defence force has surrendered meekly.

  14. H B Bear

    Time to leave.

    Umm … where to?

  15. wreckage

    Yep and it’d be, like, soooooooo different if the bunch that were in before were still there yeah?

    All the same bads and none of the economic goods, so yeah.

  16. Alfonso

    Only one …..cos I love the place, own property there, and don’t like crowds.
    Most will be happiest on the Gold Coast….. beaudy.

  17. Driftforge

    Time to leave.

    Umm … where to?

    From Australia it’s not discussed so much. Depending on your preferences, local options include Singapore, New Zealand, Vanuatu and the Cook Islands. Further afield, there are a number of South American nations doing pretty solid trade importing expats from Europe and the US. Chile, Uruguay and even Columbia head that up.

    We have reached peak insanity.

    The creative forces of capitalism have swamped the retarding “equalising” forces of socialism. Socialism is thrashing around trying to find some air. What socialists believe has been so thoroughly debunked that they themselves don’t even know what or why they believe anything anymore. We see the cognitive dissonance almost daily now.

    The retirement/welfare bill that the boomers are going to leave behind for genX/Y is a political game changer, nothing will remain the same.

  19. Bruce

    The number one conservative rule of governments is never trust them.

    Which is a sentiment taken to heart by Aussies. Today there’re some survey results out:

    LEAST TRUSTED PROFESSIONS
    50 Door-to-door salespeople
    49 Politicians
    48 Insurance salespeople
    47 Call centre staff
    46 Sex workers
    45 Real estate agents

    LEAST TRUSTED [PEOPLE]:
    100 Matthew Newton, actor
    99 Peter Slipper, politician
    98 Craig Thomson, politician
    97 Eddie Obeid, former politician
    96 Kyle Sandilands, radio announcer
    95 Julia Gillard, prime minister
    94 Christine Milne, Greens leader

    I am entertained that all 3 politicians trusted less than her are all up in front of judges for corruption. She is only being investigated by Vic plod, who raided Slater & Gordon yesterday.

    But why are pollies ahead of door-to-door salesmen? Its a mystery.

  20. Leigh Lowe

    jon stewart is always very funny and a good example of how to do political satire.

    True, but often slow on the uptake where Democrats are concerned.
    With people like Stewart on the case, Obama may as well spend the next three years getting his golf handicap down.
    Imagine if Dubya had presided over this …….

  21. Carpe Jugulum

    95 Julia Gillard, prime minister
    94 Christine Milne, Greens leader

    I’m surprised those 2 were so far down in the rankings.

  22. Leigh Lowe

    Read on, dear reader ……

    93 Stephen Conroy, politician
    92 Wayne Swan, treasurer
    91 Nathan Tinkler, businessman
    90 Bill Shorten, politician

    So the Liars Pardy, Greenslime and their props feature in eight of the top ten spots.
    Ironically, the only interlopers are real mysoginists in Newton and Sandilands.

  23. JC

    95 Julia Gillard, prime minister
    94 Christine Milne, Greens leader

    I’m surprised those 2 were so far down in the rankings.

    Why? They’re appalling human beings and everyone distrusts them. The one thing I’m shocked about is that these two slugs are battling it out in a photo finish as I would have thought Tubbsie Milne is a more disliked figure than the Lying Slapper. But there you go.

  24. JC

    Read on, dear reader ……

    93 Stephen Conroy, politician
    92 Wayne Swan, treasurer
    91 Nathan Tinkler, businessman
    90 Bill Shorten, politician

    So the Liars Pardy, Greenslime and their props feature in eight of the top ten spots.
    Ironically, the only interlopers are real mysoginists in Newton and Sandilands.

    Yep. So it appears the universe is in perfect balance as it’s creator devised. Who the fuck is Nathan Tinkler though. Never heard of him.

  25. JC

    Just look, look at what these arseholes have done to themselves. Imagine hiring anyone of these morons for brand management. They would destroy the Coke brand in a week.

    95 Julia Gillard, prime minister
    94 Christine Milne, Greens leader
    93 Stephen Conroy, politician
    92 Wayne Swan, treasurer

    90 Bill Shorten, politician

    Fucking poisonous dopes.

  26. Toiling Mass

    Like Jim Rose said, Stewart does have a compelling style.

    He is too inclined to form his idea of the right by extrapolating from some obscure lunatics (i.e. the right is basically a Beverly Hillbillies militia – compare this to people who think everyone of the left is a communist agent) so many of his observations about the right have the jarring character of Gillard talking about honesty, and his faith in bigger, progressive, government has a certain malign naivete, but he will call out people ‘on his side’ who are dishonest about it. I believe the MSM in the US is still casually incurious about the IRS and DOJ things.

    Who knows. He might have have a David Mamet style epiphany.

  27. Makka

    JC,

    No sympathy. I want these bastards right where they are in the crosshairs come Sept 14th. This survey only conforms what we all know. They are all despicable cretins, leeches that live off the taxpaying host.

  28. thefrollickingmole

    Did you note the sad thing in his otherwise funny spiel..

    Hes still calling those who have actively mistrusted the government “tin foilers”, and the big bad thing he sees is they have been proven massively, incontrovertibly right.

    Benghazi was ok as a scandal, because it was easy to bury, far away, and who cares anyway.

  29. Big jim

    Driftforge, interesting comment. We’re all so accustomed to thinking of Australia as the only place on Earth. I’ve never been to Colombia, but the other S Americans, plus Argentina, are worth another look. Their elites, at least, reached ‘peak Communism’ decades ago, whereas we are still in in a Gramscian growth phase.
    Learning Spanish, what a drag… But five Aussie dollars for a large steak and a bottle of decent Malbec, not so bad.

    If only there were attractive women in South America….

  30. Big jim

    O/T: sexist pig gets the job done. We all go to Rio!

  31. Bruce

    Nathan Tinkler is our local Newcastle equivalent of Clive Palmer. Currently paddling as fast as he can one step ahead of creditors. Dunno why he makes the bottom ten, though he’s a coal miner so the left would’ve marked him evil.

  32. Leigh Lowe

    Just look, look at what these arseholes have done to themselves. Imagine hiring anyone of these morons for brand management. They would destroy the Coke brand in a week.

    It’s actually quite instructive in light of the current leadership shitfight.
    If they were looking to by-pass the Droner or Tin-Tin they haven’t got one half-decent prospect.
    Not even a boring, save the furniture type.
    After six years ….. not one of them has managed to make the slightest impression of competency.

  33. Combine Dave

    Aren’t South American states generally run by people of Gillard’s ilk…

  34. Driftforge

    Dave, its a mix. Some have been there and moved on(Chile). Others have been there and got stuck in that pattern(Argentina).

    Mongolia is another place that gets a mention for those who like to get into a boom area earlier on.

    Earn your second passport and the world opens up. Lots of different opportunities out there.

  35. Big jim

    Hmmmm, and how exactly would you tell them apart from people of Abbot’s ilk? A half a percent of tax break here, barely a nuance on social issues there?

  36. once these freedoms are gone we may never be able to get them back.

    There is one way, but at the end there won’t be a vacant tree or lamp-post anywhere. The US Founding Fathers had it dead right with the Second Amendment. It must be hard for a Nazi to knock on a Jew’s door at midnight when he knows the thing which might greet him is a burst of gunfire.

    The earth is shifting right before our eyes

    It shifted some time ago.
    About 12 and a half years ago, to be precise.

    Again most of this discussion centres around one thing. The wrecking of our institutions and education system by the left. Until we attack the root cause there will always be “hip young kids” voting. Hip young kids = brainwashed children that fear their peers will think them uncool. A few radical arseholes in one school can churn out just how many voters for the left do you think?

    You can start by defunding anything in tertiary that ends with the word ‘studies’.

  40. struth

    By the way, is it time to leave or time to fight.
    I ponder this given the fine healthy young men on boats illegally landing on our shores to be replaced by Australian soldiers fighting for freedom in the countries they have left. I do not agree that they should be able to be as piss weak as that, and therefore I cannot leave my country without a fight or I would be a hypocrit. Can somebody please give me an alternative view as I really have had enough of this country full of hi vis wearing conformist pissants.

  41. Popular Front

    Who the fuck is Nathan Tinkler though. Never heard of him.

    Tinkler is a grossly overweight young(ish) mining ‘baron’, who has been making quite a splash with his sporting teams, racehorses and solvency lawsuits. I rate him the same way I rated Alan Bond 30 years ago; If all his creditors lined up all at once, he wouldn’t have the price of a pack of Winnie Reds left in his pocket. In other words, a parvenu.

  42. struth

    Should Stewart have not outgrown this type of nervous angriness at his age…..chidish leftism from a crank who’s Audience’s avarage age would be under thirty five. When the left talk of shock jocks, what do we classify this and nearly every stand up comedian in Australia?

  43. blogstrop

    So, have they really lost Jon Stewart?
    I don’t think so.
