Going for broke

Labor began the campaign with a kind of certainty that has now evaporated. And because they felt so certain, they were almost actually truthful about the kinds of things they would do. They would import more voting herds irrespective of the effect on our cities and the economy. They would pursue a green agenda to the very last measure of stupidity. They would waste even more money and more prodigiously than in the past. They believe the millennial vote will outweigh the effect on retirees whose incomes may be savaged.

This is a pivotal election. Either Labor finds there are limits by losing the election when they thought it was all in hand, or they win and become a modern version of Whitlam.

    If you haven’t bought a good amount of gold and stashed it….do so ASAP. Some in smaller ingots, but the main amount in big bars. Hide it somewhere safe, but spread out..

    Nothing more to say.

  2. The Quiet Farmer

    First they came for the gold?

    We finally get to see if the dumbing down of Australia has been successful. Who wins, the lifters or the leaners? I believe if the leaners win free enterprise and reward for effort are finished. On the positive side we wont have any more cyclones or droughts and the Barrier Reef will now survive. What a man is Bill.

    I, for one, welcome Bill and his new climate overlords, and, I am preparing for a stable climate as we speak.

    All that sunshine and sea breezes, the end of sea level rise …

    ‘they win and become a modern version of Whitlam’.

    Or the Democratic Party in America with its ‘Green New Deal’.
    Hopeless ignoramuses, not a bone of common sense in their collective brains.

  6. Eyrie

    So we’re back to Whitlam’s Crash or Crash through?

  7. Alessio

    Where’s Khemlani when you need him?

    We shall see if half plus one of the electorate is dependent on the State for thy daily bread. Methinks they are.
    But $6 is good odds in a 2 horse race.

    Worse than Whitlam. Whitlam just tilled the soil for these maniacs.

    Wouldn’t now be a good moment for the Coalition to point out that Whitlam destroyed Labor’s credibility with his irresponsibility, and Hawke restored it. Shorten wants to channel, not Hawke, but Whitlam.

    The Labor Party of Hawke is light years removed from that of Shorten, which Hawke must have realised. But in the end, for the “true believers,” it’s just a matter of power. Postmodernism, Stalin style.

    Either Labor finds there are limits by losing the election when they thought it was all in hand, or they win and become a modern version of Whitlam.

    The interesting thing is that despite six years of ‘stable’ opposition, Labor’s policy platform is so extemporised and fragile. Everything they propose is ideological – or appears to have been designed to an undergraduate Google/Wikipedia standard – and comes apart at the slightest scrutiny.

    It’s almost as if they were relying on the Liberals fucking up so badly that they would get in anyway and didn’t feel the need for any grownup input.

    The unintended consequences will be epic as we explore the limits.

    Can you imagine if Mao-colm was still PM?
    They were working on the assumption they were still up against a LINO they could walk over.

    Morison, whatever you think about him, has made the Libs competitive again.

    I still think we are in for the tranny government

    Tits and Dick in control.

    The irony is that the boomers allowed Whitlam to come to power and now his natural successor is going to bend them over a barrel almost fifty years later.

    QF ( 11.36am) Your farm may be confiscated to save the planet, but you are probably familiar with local landmarks etc, and will know where to hide the gold. “22 paces from the granite boulder; then dig down 2 foot to the dead-man’s chest” etc. So you’re OK, if you survive, and can get back to the spot sometime afterwards. This, of course, relies on normality being restored sometime afterwards.

    Meanwhile, you just have to get by. Something like London during the blitz, or people caught in Eastern Europe when the commies took over. Plenty of them never saw the day, but 45 years later their kids and grand-kids were back in the family homes and farms the commies had stolen. Stay based, old guy!

    BTW: Farms are more attractive to the Greens than to Labor since Il Duce Dick Dina is big on farming himself, and may like to extend his holdings substantially if he gets into co-govt. He also likes big diesel 4WDs, so get going if you have one, and if ya can!

    Time to break the wheel. All the spokes are the same.

    There’s always a catch.

  16. Up The Workers!

    If voting today or tomorrow, just spare a thought for all our members of the Armed Farces who will have to do all their future marches, drills and training in full A.L.P. tranny Diversity-Warrior camouflage gear of fishnet stockings, high heels, lippy, rouge, eye shadow, false lashes, wig, corsets, suspenders, tu-tu and rubber boobs if Billy and the Q.W.E.R.T.Y.L.G.B.T.Q.I.S.S.M.A.L.P.A.C.T.U. Gestapo slither into power.

  17. Dr Fred Lenin

    As Nigel Farage says ,politics is broken ,the two party system is a total failure nowadays too many gaia worshipping lunatics infiltrating the parties ,we need to cleanse the whole rotten structure . Political parties are totally corrupted ,the publicservice has forgotten who pays their huge salaries ,business is bound by regulatory chains the education system is totall corrupted by activite pretend teachers . The sign us up to rotten opressive “treaties” with the unelected u.n.communist fascist globalist criminals .
    Society must change or we will sink into a socialist fascist mire it will take 80 years to get out of .
    Lts have a Polliexit abolish career politics and party donations over $10 a year.

    “or they win and become a modern version of Whitlam…”

    Unfortunately, it is the latter.

    The vote herd is already here and it is sleep-walking (dead-walking?) its way to Venezuela.

    Pro-tip: Invest in household pets (You cannot eat gold) – they should be just about the right size for eating by the time this all hits the fan.

  19. Terry

    “…abolish career politics…”

    You can start by getting rid of the “post-service” pensions, gold cards, staff and perks (retrospectively). All gone.

    You serve in the here and now and for the sole benefit of those you (supposedly) represent – not for the power and riches you might attain by doing so.

    You will be remunerated for your time and that is it.

    Whenever that arrangement does not suit either you or the electors that put you there, it’s over (and that means OVER).

  20. Cynic of Ayr

    The thing is that half – or more – of Australia’s population want exactly what Labor is selling.
    They think what Shorten is telling them is a good thing.
    Why do they think that?
    Because they do not know what the consequences will be!
    None of them do. They believe that socialism works. They have no experience otherwise.
    No amount of advertising, talk shows, or evidence will convince them.
    So, they have to experience it! There is no other way to prevent Socialism in Australia.
    Not all will be convinced they were sold a pup. But enough will.
    Eventually!

    Up The Workers (1.13pm) A quick question

    The B in Q.W.E.R.T.Y.L.G.B.T.Q.I.S.S.M.A.L.P.A.C.T.U. …..isn’t that a form of hate-speech (or hate thought)/
    Wouldn’t this imply that there are only two genders you can be attracted to, and therefore exclude the other 53; imply that they do not exist?

    Just asking is all. No insult meant to Bi people who like sheep and goats, OK?

  22. The Quiet Farmer

    BS, (untrue title) at 1.06. I agree with everything you say, I know the farm will be gone. I just haven’t worked out how you can hold gold in your hot little hand in this country, and when farming, get enough of the readies to get gold.
    And Terry don’t worry about the pets, plenty of feral sheep and cattle will be out there if the vegans have their way. Now a knife to … maybe a different problem if we follow the UK model.

  23. Pedro the Ignorant

    Physical gold is running at about $A1870 per ounce, a near record spot price.

    Buy privately for cash if possible so you leave no paper trail for the thieves in .gov to come and get your stash.

  24. Bruce

    And with what will the accumulators of gold bars and assorted bric-a-brac defend their ‘holdings”?

    When the fit really hits the shan, in descending order of importance:
    Small-arms ammo and the associated delivery systems,
    Water purification and storage equipment.
    Non-perishable foodstuffs
    Tools (the workshop kind, not the polical ones)
    Non-perishable pharmaceuticals

    YMMV.
