Arise and greet the New Dawn with cheerful song. Comrades

Or is that tomorrow?

Anyway before Bill and Chris redistribute the last of your meagre savings for the benefit of needy childcare workers, CFMEU girls holding stop go signs and retired politicians, get your tickets to the Friedman Conference.

And if you really want to sing, here are some songs. Among them the ALP Anthem

Australians all, please just forget

We’re floating in a sea of debt;

In spite of what it may appear,

It wasn’t us who got us here.

So, if we’re clumsy with your cash,

It’s ‘cos we love to share;

………

We’re union born and union bred,

We’re strong in arm and weak in head,

And if you think that’s thuggery –

Then you can go to buggery.

    https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/may/17/why-the-guardian-is-changing-the-language-it-uses-about-the-environment

    The Guardian has updated its style guide to introduce terms that more accurately describe the environmental crises facing the world.

    Instead of “climate change” the preferred terms are “climate emergency, crisis or breakdown” and “global heating” is favoured over “global warming”, although the original terms are not banned.

    “We want to ensure that we are being scientifically precise, while also communicating clearly with readers on this very important issue,” said the editor-in-chief, Katharine Viner. “The phrase ‘climate change’, for example, sounds rather passive and gentle when what scientists are talking about is a catastrophe for humanity.”

    “Increasingly, climate scientists and organisations from the UN to the Met Office are changing their terminology, and using stronger language to describe the situation we’re in,” she said.

    Bull Shitten must be supremely happy that the run-up is over and it’s now down to the voting, the cheating and the ‘tickling’ of the count by his affiliated unionist electoral officials.

    No more early mornings improbably vertically jogging in the cold air for the benefit of the adoring pack of A.L.P.B.C./Fauxfacts Channel Nein/Seven/Ten/SBS propaganda toadies, brown-noses and presstitutes “embedded” up his sphincter (kick Bull Shitten in the backside and the press pack all get concussion) – he can now get back to his preferred horizontal kind of jogging, which is much less stressful on his wobbly gynecomastic frame.

    No need for a sports bra to protect him from the stresses of jogging horizontally – he has Dodgy Dan’s whole blind, deaf, dumb and bent Leftard Police Farce to perform that function.

    I wonder what Cardinal Pell, as he sits in a prison cell incarcerated by the A.L.P.’s “Get Pell Squad” for a crime could not possibly have committed, thinks of this vile grub becoming Prime Minister?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_cycle
    An extract from the “Carbon Cycle”:

    Carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere primarily through photosynthesis and enters the terrestrial and oceanic biospheres. Carbon dioxide also dissolves directly from the atmosphere into bodies of water (ocean, lakes, etc.), as well as dissolving in precipitation as raindrops fall through the atmosphere. When dissolved in water, carbon dioxide reacts with water molecules and forms carbonic acid, which contributes to ocean acidity. It can then be absorbed by rocks through weathering. It also can acidify other surfaces it touches or be washed into the ocean.

    Human activities over the past two centuries have significantly increased the amount of carbon in the atmosphere, mainly in the form of carbon dioxide, both by modifying ecosystems’ ability to extract carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and by emitting it directly, e.g., by burning fossil fuels and manufacturing concrete.

    [3]

    In the extremely far future, the carbon cycle will likely speed up the rate of carbon dioxide is absorbed into the soil from carbonate–silicate cycle. This is mainly caused by the increased luminosity of the Sun, which speeds up the rate of surface weathering.[10] This will eventually cause most of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to be squelched into the Earth’s crust as carbonate. Though volcanoes will continue to pump carbon dioxide into the atmosphere in the short term, it will not be enough to keep the carbon dioxide level stable in the long term.[11][full citation needed] Once the carbon dioxide level falls below 50 particles per million, C3 photosynthesis will no longer be possible.

    No photosynthesis – no life on earth!

    Yea Labor are a bunch of commies re-distributing our meager wealth.
    Not like the conservative movement in this country, which built the green bureaucracy and middle class welfare, handing out other peoples money like there’s no tomorrow.
    They’re totally not an even worse version of Labor.

    Nope, don’t think about any of that.
    Just follow the group like a good conservative drone.

    Voting coalition over labor, because if i get in a closed room with a befuddled, corrupt corpulent turnbullite, one with such a lack of backbone that chrissy pyne intimidates them, i can let rip and the cops don’t even try to track me down afterwards and even if they do, the judge sees my carefully long crafted antifa creditentials and fines me a dollar.

    If i display wrongthink to a member of their shorten looting and purging cartel, it is a showtrial and off to the re-education camps then to die in the gulag.

    Better the blindingly aloof and indifferent incompetence of the turnbullite leftovers than the motivated and driven genocidal rage of the shorten vengeance purges.

    The Source of All Blessings (and Curses)
    Gary North – December 18, 2018

    The libertarian publicist Leonard E. Read used to say that the average person has no strong opinions about chemistry, but he has lots of opinions about economics, which are usually wrong.

    WHAT CHANGED IN 1750?
    History has meaning, contrary to Eastern mysticism. The world is not maya: illusion. Reality is not an illusion. There is cause and effect in history. There are also non-causes and effects.

    Prior to the advent of capitalism, poverty was nearly universal. The rich were a tiny fraction of the total population. There were famines, plagues, and widespread ignorance. There was little literacy prior to 1450. The printing press had not lowered the cost of books and pamphlets to such levels that it paid the average person to learn how to read.

    Socialists refused to explain the Industrial Revolution in terms of capital markets, freedom of contract, the defense of private property, and free trade.

    It is the creativity of man that turns natural resources into factors of production. This includes the creativity of men who bid for the output of such resources. In capitalism, the high bid usually wins. This puts pressure on people to become productive, in order to make high bids.

    We know the answer: #1. Capital formation is the most powerful force in man’s history for the elimination of poverty.
    The Bible, like all other religious books, does not command the reinvestment of profits. It commands charity.

    I regard John Wesley as the person who did more to relieve poverty than anyone in history. He showed the way to wealth to millions of poor people who had not read Adam Smith. He preached this of money: Earn all you can. Give all you can. Save all you can.

    Wesley preached to the poorest people in the British Isles. He spent most of his adult life on horseback. He preached sobriety, hard work, and thrift to those poverty-stricken people who came to be called Methodists. He changed the face of England.

    His followers experienced what religious orders and monks did throughout the Middle Ages: they got rich by practicing systematic frugality. That was why, every few centuries, there was a wave of religious reform among the mendicant orders that had sworn vows of poverty. Too much money was rolling in. The monks were enjoying the life style of the rich and famous.

    Thrift is the key element in the reduction of poverty. Thrift capitalizes the entrepreneurs and inventors whose ideas overcome poverty for the masses.

    I argue in many of my books that the worldview of the Bible presents the case for private ownership, which in turn produces the capitalist order. Socialists may disagree. So may Randians. But the fact remains that the capitalist order is what has made the difference historically in the conquest of poverty. Before capitalism, there were many varieties of Christianity, but none of them produced the society-wide cornucopia of wealth that has given us all of those blessings to count.

    The ability to think straight is not widely dispersed. The ability to think straight economically is even less widely dispersed.

    It was not Adam Smith who convinced the poor Methodist in his hovel to decrease his expenditures and start saving. It was a highly educated man on horseback, who rose at 4 A.M., preached a sermon at 5 A.M., and rode off to the next town, year after year, decade after decade. It was not the case for capitalism in the books of political economy that changed the minds of the poor, but the simple words of a complex man who said to earn all you can, save all you can, and give all you can.

    He called dissolute people on the fringes of society to straighten up and fly right. Millions of them did.

    It never ceases to amaze me that those people who say they follow the same God that Wesley followed don’t understand the message of Wesley and his original followers, just as they don’t understand the logic of Adam Smith, which reinforced Wesley’s words. “Thou shalt not steal” is a good place to begin economics in one lesson.

    So are the words of the land owner in Jesus’ parable of the complaining laborers, who groused that they had been paid exactly what they had been promised. “Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?” (Matthew 20:15). We should do our best to think straight. When we do, we will be better able to count the costs, another message of Jesus (Luke 14:28-30).

    I’ll tell you what … any union boss who doesn’t smack a votestacker for not turning up today is a bum.

    So…. A thin Coalition victory…. or a hung Parliament/minority Government… or rampant Ecofascism under Labor?

    We’ll soon know.
