These socialists are so ignorant

Loved the front page quote in The Oz today from the Leader of the Opposition: “I want a country that makes things, creates wealth – and shares it.”

That is, of course, what we already have. That is what the market economy and the price system automatically do. What he means, he wants to take from those who make things and create wealth and give it to those who do not.

Then there’s the front page of The Herald Sun: West Gate Bridge Sinking. This too underscores what socialists never get, that all existing assets have to be maintained, and this maintenance takes up a lot of our resource base. The socialists prefer to distribute. I guess they will have to sell Victoria to the Chinese to get these things done.

Three stories at the Oz as well that all point in the same direction:

Daniel Andrews not so much a dictator as a world-class bungler

Coronavirus: Offended Jenny Mikakos lobs political grenades at Daniel Andrews

Politics Now: Daniel Andrews silent on scathing Jenny Mikakos attack

Former Victorian Health Minister Jenny Mikakos has blamed Daniel Andrews’ subversion of Cabinet processes for the hotel quarantine program’s failings, allegations the Victorian Premier deniesAmid a virus spike in NSW, Premier Gladys Berejiklian says the refusal of Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to open the state’s borders is ‘illogical.

And our education system is so defunct that no one any longer even knows why it’s all falling apart.

    Then, of course, one must remember that it is a total complete scam, since the “test” they are using provides utter nonsense.

    And of course the Coronavirus that causes the imaginary disease is is no more real than ‘global warming”.

    We’ve been conned!

    The West Gate bridge maintenance and flow-on conditions are a nice little earner for the CFMMEU and their members. Victoriastani taxpayers less so.

  3. Maurice Newman jolted me when he said in an interview the other day that the Government & the Opposition are just 2 manifestations of Socialism (or words to that effect) – one is just a milder form than the other.

  4. covid ate my homework

    Witless Whitmer still has one up on Dickears cos he hasn’t staged his own kidnapping yet.

    Funny definition of sharing.

    I was amused watching the news last night a report about Albo criticising the government for not putting more in the budget for wymmin.

    In a year which has featured the 10 Biblical plagues, more or less, this struck me as the perfect whinge.

    Leak caught the vibe too!

  7. I love to know what’s going on inside the state government. First it’s Mikakos and now it’s Crisp changing his story after telling the commission three times that he made his minister aware of what was happening with the hotel situation. Somethings crook in Tallarook.

    Happens when you stop beating the little moppets. Of course, in order to rectify the situation at this late stage we need to implement a widespread strategy of beating the teachers.

    socialist prefer to steal and use the proceeds to buy votes, they have this democracy thing sussed out

  11. covid ate my homework

    Only thing better than a crisis is two crises. Covid and a fully loaded Westgate Bridge tipping over on a Friday afternoon, mmm, priceless.

  12. Colonel Bunty Golightly

    Yes, please sell Victoria to the Chinese. Actually give it to them. The clowns that continually vote for Andrews and his clown government deserve to be part of A real socialist experiment!

    You sound like that stackman that seems to go by at least two monikers. This is not a third version, is it?

    Lots of people know why but we have no voice as our major political parties are either bought and paid for by the CCP or part of the global social agenda.

    One more time…..

    I used to meet hundreds of Victorians at random and was always aware that in general they are not the sharpest tools in the shed. A great number of the smarter ones left yonks ago, while the smarter ones that remained were not smart enough to counter the rest.

    And here we are. Low average IQ is always ripe for leftist overthrow.

    Decades back (maybe centuries) the working class had little education; were inbred; were downtrodden and all that, so they were the left’s natural constituency, but times changed and, as the workers got smarter, the left looked for the dumber to prop them up. That’s the edumacated “dregs of the middle class’: the ones who spout stuff that’s so stupid that “only an intellectual could believe it”

    And here we are…….

    West Gate Bridge ‘sinking’

    Haha too many cars using the bridge? = too many immigrants, not sufficient infrastructure spend and maintenance. But then the ponzi immigration scheme doesn’t allow for actually providing such stuff.

    As for building things here are they finally denouncing the Lima Agreement they all signed? They need to own up that it was a massive error.

    Then there’s the front page of The Herald Sun: West Gate Bridge Sinking.

    Our second falling bridge problem – no, I forgot. This is the second time for this one! And ye gods, exactly 50 years ago. And yes, I know exactly where I was when I heard the news.

    Earlier we had Kings Bridge crack and crumble in July 1962. Almost no online material available but Wiki has some history.

    Those little undisciplined moppets grew up to become today’s teachers, bemoaning (if they can spell it) the fact that they can’t control their classrooms.

    So the discipline they missed in their student days needs to be administered to them now, as adults, in more severe form because receiving the natural consequences of their undisciplined adolescent years is not enough for them to learn their lesson/s.

    Maybe Dan could build an East-West tunnel.
    Oh wait he spent $1.1 billion to not build a East-West tunnel.
    As you were.

    “I love to know what’s going on inside the state government. First it’s Mikakos and now it’s Crisp changing his story after telling the commission three times that he made his minister aware of what was happening with the hotel situation.”

    Crisp has always come over as being anything but crisp.

    How soon till Joe Public wakes up to the fact that SloMo is just Hunchback lite – desperately trying to breathe life into a now Zombie Economy?

    There’s no “snap back” when you’ve poured cold water all over the coals, Econotards.

  23. One more time…..

    Are you certain that you’re not simply projecting and that it’s what you see in the mirror that disturbs you so much?

  24. Bad Samaritan

    bemused (6.27am). It took a while but finally a Dan-Fan rises to the bait…..

    OK, you’ve nailed it. The 67% of Victorians who still love their premier are the full quid.

  25. OK, you’ve nailed it. The 67% of Victorians who still love their premier are the full quid.

    I think my original assessment of you stands. For you to meet ‘hundreds’ of such Victorians, you must attend venues where such are found. These would typically be the likes of Festival of Dangerous Ideas, comedy festivals, literary festivals, ABC events and the like, where Leftist congregate.

    That kind of reveals who you are and, deliberately trying to incite readers shows even more about your character, or lack of it, much like that of the stackman. We get it, you don’t like Victoria or Victorians, but when the shit flows out of your mouth, don’t be surprised if someone thinks your head is full of shit as well.

  26. And I might add; where do these poll figures come from? The very same media that does everything within their power to support Chairman Dan and his activities. Only Leftists believe these polls to be valid.

  27. Annie

    I’m sick of all the disparaging remarks about Victorians. A large minority did NOT vote Labor. In my case, I have NEVER voted Labour (in the UK) or Labor here. Glib comments about how intelligent people should leave the state, if they haven’t already done so, really grate. Not so simple, actually, especially for older people like us who thought their house/country-moving days were over. We are very tired of moving and we returned a few years ago for two main reasons; to be near some of our family and to help to rebuild the church at Marysville (the previous one having been destroyed in the Black Saturday firestorm). Give it a break will you!
    We are completely disgusted by what is going on here and utterly despise Andrews and his worse than useless crew. Three cheers for Peta Credlin and Rachel Baxendale and all strength to your efforts to get at the truth about the quarantine hotel disgrace.

    I want a country that makes things, creates wealth – and shares it.”

    That’s capitalism albo!

    Private businesses risk capital and engage human resources to create products that consumers want. They get paid and share the profits with shareholders and tax authorities.

    If only Morrison was a capitalist as well Australia migh just succeed.

    “Low average IQ…”

    Look, I agree with the concepts you espouse, however I feel I have to pull you up on this: average IQ is – by definition – 100. BY DEFINITION!
