Minding your A’s and T’s

I reckon at this point the election looks about even. The Coalition, bless their hearts, are finally again moving towards the A-list of conservative policies. Towards self-reliance as the central means of running our lives, away from global warming hysteria, and border protection. The Libs are scraping out the vestiges of their T-for-Toxic remnants, who are holding less sway and are reducing in numbers. You can see there is a battle going on between the A faction and the T faction, but just in time, and not before time, the A faction has moved ahead.

Meanwhile, the ALP has opted for socialism, Green New Deals and Open Borders, a deadly combination that if implemented would ruin Australia and make it unrecognisable. There may really be a constituency for all this, but there is the strong possibility that we are not yet so far gone that we will go down that road.

The “A”s have knocked off the “T”s just in time. We shall see soon enough how it all works out.

    Have their turnbullites managed to sign enough eternally binding transnational conventions that activists can use the unswerving commitments to destroy any non-turnbullite project with lawfare?.

    Lawfare in foreign courts, in foreign languages?

    Comrades?.

    Sorry? You mean the Australian Federal Coalition? On planet Earth, not alternative Bizarro-Canberra? Steve, what colour is the sky in your world?

    As long as we’re positing alternative earths within the multiverse, can I have one where I’m in a polyamorous relationship with Nigella Lawson and Trivago Girl?

    Yep, no problem. But note, in that world Shorten won the election.
    But does that really matters if you never leave your bed?

    Seriously Steve … RUOK?

    Describe their movement away from global warming hysteria. They won’t even sign off on Adani let alone leave the stupid Paris agreement. What the fuck are you on about?

    ……… but there is the strong possibility that we are not yet so far gone that we will go down that road.

    Hope you are right Steve, but the ABC-TASS media control the road signage and they will deceive the Australian middle and working class, who don’t really understand where they are heading to when they vote Labor-Green.

    Have you factored in the Liberals known propensity to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory?
    Every day brings us that much closer to one of their number making a electorally catastrophic statement or revealing some ill considered action or plan.

    Dont tell me the so called libs have scoured the left crap out ,it suited the ones who left to go and get the bigger pensions before the new changes came in to effect . Saying the lefties have gone when scomo etc the turnbull supporters are still there is a bit premature ,if all the lefties were purged they could hold meetings in a car without crowding .

    I had a discussion with a socialist millennial the other day. Apparently, all we have to do is take the money from the top one percent and society’s problems will all be solved …….. until they go for the top two percent, I said.

  10. Not Uh oh

    Minding your A’s and T’s is all well and good until it all finally goes A over T, which I suspect is not far away.

    Watching BS run to parliament did bring a smile – …. perhaps you are right.. BUT

    I predict this election will be all about the independents – the Lib /Labor and GREEN members are ALL stained with the global warming tax rises and the migration rort they use to keep their wages in Canberra rising at our expense. FOX in the bush and Fake news will be a factor.

    The communists are so sure they’ll win that they’re no longer bothering to lie about their goals. That may scare a few swinging voters the opposite direction, per Kates.

    But the Libs are still rotten with entryists who have cosied up to the ALP and are busy screwing their traditional base along with the rest of the country. They deserve the smashing they’re about to get at the next election, and I’m looking forward to helping give it to them. Only a total electoral wipe-out can cleanse the filth from the party and clear the path for credible candidates.

    Granted, I hope that plenty of heritage Australians run as independents, so that I have someone to vote for. But I’m not voting for any present Liberal candidate – they’re going last on the ballot, no matter who else is on it.

    me too.

    Measured by performance, the libs are worse than lab.

    The ALP majority will be so large that caucus will spend all its time arguing over the spoils and BS will have no chance of controlling the vast number of MPs in his party. i.e. a do nothing government.

    Well, the election will tell us if the sex act is consensual.

    I think Steve Kates is right and the election is going to be closer than polls suggest.

    Scott Morrison is doing his best. He is just not a man of firm and definite opinions and tries to please everyone like M. Turnbull ended up trying to do, and therefore becomes bland.

    Bill Shorten seems a bland personality too. Sometimes I think Australian electorate would like a more strongish sexier leader who stood by their principles, drew the camera and the news just by innate charisma. We don’t have that and Shorten vs. Morrison is what we have. It is a little dull really. Not much choice.

    The Photios Party has spent about 2 years 9 or 10 months since the last election (and a lot of time before then) doing exactly what Labor and the Greens would have done, just slightly less wholeheartedly. Having realised that that was the road to oblivion they’re now introducing a few good sounding policies and talking a good game.

    But if by some miracle they did get back in they would instantly revert to viciously monstering their own base to show the ABC and Fairfax how woke they are.

    Yes, the Peanut Head/Greens government will be worse but in th long run does it really matter?

    Better that the Photios Party is utterly destroyed.

    Policies and actions don’t sway millennials.

    All they know is that all they need to know is Libs = Far Right Wing = Extreme Populist White Supremacist Bad Nazi Social Death and Labor = Left = goodness and kindness, although not nearly left wing enough.

    I had a discussion with a socialist millennial the other day. Apparently, all we have to do is take the money from the top one percent and society’s problems will all be solved …….. until they go for the top two percent, I said.

    It is like Monty Python’s Dennis Moore. (Once he gets past a strange fixation on lupins as a means of effecting societal change) he begins robbing the rich to give to the poor, to verses like:

    Chorus (sings): Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore, galloping through the sward,
    Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore, and his horse Concorde.
    He steals from the rich and gives to the poor,
    Mr Moore, Mr Moore, Mr Moore.

    Eventually he impoverishes the ‘rich’ and has enriched the ‘poor’:

    Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
    Riding through the land
    Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
    Without a merry band
    He steals from the poor. And gives to the rich
    Stupid bitch.

    But socialists stick with the same Dickensian schematic because they are not really devoted to the poor but to themselves as the hero in a little drama that runs in their own heads.

    The lower classes in the West flourished while those in socialist nations were forever being lured on (with progressively less effect) by promises of a bright future just around the corner, always just around the corner, until the only option was an exhausted pragmatic surrender.

    In the West the ‘poor’ were getting things supposedly the preserve of the rich – leisure time, travel, education, world class medicine, financial security that even permitted savings etc, while in socialist countries they were struggling to deliver on the promises from 1917.

    “Schema”, not “schematic”.

    I would not mind the auto-correct so much if it had a decent vocabulary.

    Ha!

    And as fate would have it here is the Liberty quote that probably planted the seed of my comment years ago.

    Every innovation makes its appearance as a luxury of the few well-to-do. After industry has become aware of it, the luxury then becomes a necessity for all.

    — Ludwig von Mises
