Pigs killing civilians okay but not people defending vs Pigs

    Two completely different spins by mediocre pro-police mainstream Australian media over the last two days. In Melbourne a pig gives evidence to an inquest whose role is to exonerate police in the execution killing of a teenager . Despite having access to unlimited resources to subdue the teenager, this pig felt so threatened that he had to cold bloodedly kill the teenager.  The incident should reinforce to teenagers, families communities and the Australian public that people are not safe anywhere in Australia -and the greatest threat to people (particularly teens ) is gung ho often steroid stoned pigs, funded by your tax money… heres how the Sydney Morning Herald saw the unravelling story today.

 Just yesterday the mainstream media was a waterfall of sympathy for a Kings Cross female pig “badly bashed” by a guy some time ago. Kings Cross Police have a reputation for victimising youth and defenceless people as career stepping stones. They are well known too for orchestrating beatups on homeless people and communities as well as social housing tenants in the Kings Cross Local Area Command region. Unlike the many executed by police over the years she didn’t die. But the guy who was found guilty of bashing her was sentenced to 21 years jail. Many who had been accosted by this particular pig thought he deserved a medal. Youth from the area were cheering when it happened, when they found out whom it happened to. Heres how the mainstream media saw that one .

  Sydney Homeless view police as Taxpayer funded racist community terrorists whose role is to take rights away from people and give them to churches and wealthy exploiters.NSW Police engage in many levels of racist community terrorism.It is widely known that NSW Police were responsible for orchestrating constant streams of class A drugs into the Redfern Aboriginal Community known as the block since the 1970s with the purpose of de politicizing that community. It is no secret that most of the ICE -the most evil drug with the most devastating consequences -distributed in Sydney is green flagged to certain areas and people by police. Police are known to be the source of many malicious and false reports which culminate in children being State Abducted. Many of us remember having our wallets taken for ID checks by police and having them returned stripped of cash. Others recall gangs of cops bashing them (while handcuffed) in cells. Some are related to or know someone who was killed by pigs. So yes,on the rare occasion when a NSW police officer is killed, we celebrate.

A Rock of Charity in an Ocean of deceit

We don’t often have anything good to say about ANY of the corporatised “charities” – especially the majors. It is widely known among the sector how and why their aims of monetising the marginalised has earned them our eternal scorn and contempt. We are more than ready and able to throw shit where it sticks and in doing so, it may be seen to reflect badly on some operators within the sector who have long been stalwart unsung heroes of the marginalised in Sydney. There are some committed people and groups within even the most monetised of the Marginalisation Sector NGO Industry and we’d like to thank one of the genuine, make it up as you go along, old school operations who have spent more days and nights providing essential services to Sydney ‘s homeless and marginalised community than the average low income family living indoors have had nourishing hot dinners in the Howard-Rudd_Gillard era. On the First Sunday evening of every month for many years now an old Nissan Urvan in Salvation Army livery with a distinctive yellow roadworks light appears outside Nicks in Woollo, then later at Martin Place and later at the railway station,sometimes even at Belmore Park. This van, staffed and supported entirely on the resources its small team manage to bring together, provides the only freely available eyesight tests-oh yes-and glasses available on the Streets. This is old school Salvos,a regrettably rare relic from bygone times when The Salvation Army were a genuine charity, not a thinly disguised business masquerading as a Not-for-Profit. This small group are from the era when Churches prayed,not prey as they do today. Over the years countless homeless,many who had long ago resigned themselves to never enjoying a good read ever again,due to government (and government funded) services being a quantum leap short of the abyss width between the rhetoric and hyperbole of government / NGO hyperbole -compared with the crushing demeaning reality of meanspirited minimalist delivery, have been quickly given a new lease of sight by this apparently cavalier but deeply committed crew of genuine stalwarts. Stalwarts whose good work is consistently being diminished by the money first antics of their associated Job Network and  parasitic family destroying Oasis divisions. Are this small band who do so much for the homeless community the last genuine Salvos?? We hope not. Now, we spend a lot of time telling people NOT to give to the poverty industry-but next time you’re approached by a Salvo check his nametag.If it says Major Hilton Harmer, open your heart,open your mind and empty your wallet.The man quietly does what all the spin & rhetoric makers can only hope to do -without the millions of your tax dollars squandered annually by the pariah poverty industry.Your money goes where its needed. To Major Harmer and his merry band of volunteers merry christmas,from a grateful SydneyHomeless community .

16000 reasons NOT to vote for #NSW MP Linda Burney in 2011

In the upcoming NSW election I can give you 16000 compelling reasons not to vote for Linda Burney. They are the 16000 children currently under State Child abduction in NSW. Cynically referred to as Child protection, sadly, many of these children have never felt the need for protection from their caring and loving families. Yet they are not allowed to tell you that. Their names are forbidden to be published (unless they are dead) -even if they seek to make their case public when they become adults. While the Law says that this is to protect the child, history is littered with numerous instances where a reasonable person would conclude that the reasons for such secrecy are foremost the protection of this out of control department,among the most reviled in Australia  from exposure to public scrutiny and serious criminal charges ranging from gross negligence to giving evidence in a court of law knowing it to be false.

The much promoted changes to the way DOCs does business and accompanying name change in January 2010 palmed off the troublesome care obligations to Serco style DOCs contract “case managers” who are reputedly paid $6000 per child per week. In stark contrast to the $600 per child per week allocated to the actual carer. Many of these “case management” businesses are either Church or ex DOCS Staff/Management controlled. The inexplicably high service costs provide no incentive for these businesses to speed up the conclusion of court proceedings- in fact,mischevious  family destroying delays are quite lucrative-for lawyers ,”pseudo science psychologists”whose every make believe word is hung on by out of touch judges and of course, DOCs bureaucrats and their attendant band of profiteering,community destroying NGOS.   Happily for these businesses,they are uniquely positioned to both tell children they are there to help them,while using the relationship to spy on those children, gathering or sometimes manufacturing information to assist with the often baseless allegations made against the often hapless families.   DOCs was also tucked away- hidden within the “super department” of Human Services. Nobody (In their right mind )would work for DOCs

Here are some of the children,the compelling reasons NOT to vote for DOCs Minister Linda Burney at the NSW State elections in March 2011.

A 13-YEAR-OLD put on a train alone by the Department of Community Services has vanished.

June 2010:

Police are searching for the teenager Ryall who was left on a train at Parramatta by DoCS staff on Monday.

She failed to arrive at her destination near Wollongong and police said today security cameras at Central Station had captured her leaving a train there.

Her parents told a radio station this morning they were furious with the department…full article in The Daily Telegraph

FIVE-year-old girl wrongly removed from her parents was denied a visit with her dying father,by Minister Linda Burney even after the Ombudsman ruled DOCS bungled the case.”

In a horror start to her life, the girl has suffered from cancer, lost her father and spent more than two years separated from her family because of decisions that should not have been made.

DOCS will be forced to pay compensation to the family of the Sydney girl, who had never been abused or neglected… more

Baby in DOCS care ‘horrifically’ injured in NSW |

The Daily Telegraph

check back.. a new child will be added daily..as reported by the mainstream media…

   There is no destroyer of families and communities which has as profound and devastating an impact as that which you, the taxpayer fund -The NSW Department of Communities and its parent Human Services. Their impact is more detrimental than aids cancer drugs and alcohol combined. This department of the NSW Government is now the leading cause of family and comunity breakdown, homelessness, poverty and marginalisation in New South Wales, Australia. It is time communities and people stood up to this taxpayer funded fascism -by all means available.

  Every Child Protection worker from the minister to volunteers should have their work assessed by a community tribunal with the same Guantanamo like approach to justice as the Chldrens and Families Courts -with punishments including loss of all superannuation, assets and rights to work with children. Christians and Government employees should be specifically excluded from participating as arbiters in these tribunals, which should be appointed by the affected communities.

#Ausvotes Greens sign up with Labor

The Greens have just announced an alliance with Labor,giving Labor 73 of the 76 seats it needs to form Government and control of the Senate from July 1st.
Gillard has ditched Labors Climate Talkfest election promise and replaced it with the same tired old Parliamentary comittee process which has consistently failed,most notably under Labor administrations.There is no agreement on Carbon Prices nor a strategy to meet crucial 2020 Climate targets.The alliance may have been strategically timed to influence the crucial 3 amigos, the country independents, whom pollsters tell us are being overwhelmingly told to align with the Coalition.
There is zero in this for marginalised people or for Climate mitigation.Gillard or Brown have not articulated what form parliamentary transparency might take and its difficult to see the consistency between this brave new world for Labor and its love of the backroom deal,or its Internet Filter policy, which we are not allowed to fully know about.

The Govt Policy Auction begins

With the Federal Election a long way from decided and the auction has commenced in earnest. In an unnecessary rebuff to incoming WA MP Crook a WA Nationals member who has vowed to work as an independent in federal parliament, Julia Gillard has signalled that her deal with big end of town miners Rio, BHP Billiton and Xstrata is cast in concrete and not up for negotiation.But in an olive branch to the other independents the Prime Minister has signalled that all the election commitments she made to the people are negotiable. Its a clear indication of where Prime Minister Julia Gillards priorities are. Xstrata, BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto certainly have her undivided attention to the extent that the Prime Minister is not prepared to reveal the full extent of her deal with them to the public – or even other lesser miners such as the publicly listed Fortescue, who must make financial decisions going forward without access to the full deck of cards as far as the mining super-tax is concerned.

For what its worth, we consider the mining super-tax to be grossly unfair for two reasons. Its effective date exempts the bulk of Xstrata – BHP Billiton – Rio Tinto operations from paying the tax, yet these companies have enjoyed long periods of huge profits, while the comparatively new projects of the “lesser miners” which will have to pay, are virtually greenfields. As we shift our focus more broadly its apparent that there are other businesses operating in Australia which also generate indecent super profits.Leading those are banksand other financial institutions, with Commonwealth recently reporting a 6 billion dollar profit.

Prime Minister Gillard could appease the WA member very easily by dropping the mining tax (on the condition that WA Govt removes its mining taxes) then apply a fairer broad spectrum super profits tax which applyies to all businesses. She could win Windsors approval by linking this tax to improving the Murray Darling water supply,even if this means buying water-hog Cubby Station (which I’d prefer to see nationalised without compensation). The Prime Minister could use some of the projected funds to hasten the deployment of NBN Broadband in the bush, a key Oakeshott Katter concern.

Tony Abbott is equally hungry for power and has put all his election promises on the chopping block in a naked grab for power.He has still not told the public what he will do if by some quirk of misfortune he is foisted on us as Prime Minister. Tony Abbott told us in May not to trust anything he says “unless he writes it.” Independent MPs would be well advised to get any commitments he makes carved in stone in front of the full bench of the Supreme Court.

….but what would I know… I’m just a homeless guy.

Greens looking forward

While we have been enthusiastically supportive of the Greens holding the balance of responsibility there are some policies and one candidate which we don’t support.

Greens ACT Senate candidate Lin Hatfield Dodds is the ex head of Uniting Care Australia and Chair of ACOSS. Both of these organisations have a parasitic connection to marginalised people using us as tokens to leverage financial advantage from an ever overburdened taxpayer. Both together with their affiliates have a long history of enjoying the attentive ear of both sides of politics. We only became aware of her history after the election and we therefore were not able to get this information out. If she is the Greens lead person on Marginalisation and welfare then the country can look forward to the Greens supporting more expensive and ineffective band aids which do not address the causes of marginalisation, but are extremely beneficial revenue wise for entities such as Uniting Care. That is what ACOSS and Uniting Care specialise in.

The Australian Greens also have a policy commitment to keep public service jobs secure. This includes the bureaucratic brainiacs who have under the Howard and Rudd-Gillard governments orchestrated indigenous family invasions under the guise of protecting children -and using those children as tokens to collect millions of dollars without delivering outcomes which exceed or even meet those which would reasonably be expected in the circumstances from which the child was removed.

The third issue I have with Greens policy is its support of a higher income tax regime and lower GST. This is in my view regressive and especially detrimental to the very constituency which the Greens seek to represent. A progressive option is to implement an extension of the miners super tax to include a similar tax on similar profit excesses across the business spectrum. Banking and Financial Institutions for example. Then theres the issue of why churches should be exempt from paying their fair share in taxes,yet receive far more generous benefits than any taxpayer. And the potential for a development supertax offset to fund social housing acquisition. This would seem to me to be more in tune with Greens constituencies aspirations and their capacity to keep paying ever more burdensome and onerous taxes.

Meanwhile, congratulations to all Greens and Greens supporters for your resounding victories in this 2010 Federal Election.I hope you get the opportunity to use your new balance of responsibility wisely.

Election Possibilities

Neither The Coalition nor Labor have any right to claim a victory let alone a clear mandate and vindication of their policies. In preferring to run mirror image negative campaigns and virtually identical policies the two major parties effectively created the no-choice election.Neither leader is perceived as particularly competent, outstanding or honest.Both Parties adhere to the economic rationalist economy first people last mantra.The inevitable result is that the election result is too close to call-and in all probability a hung parliament. With independents and a lone Green lower house member holding the balance of responsibility. To get to the magical majority of 76 Lower House seats, either major party must reach an accommodation with two, or possibly three independents as a minimum. If this alone were the challenge we could reasonably expect a Coalition government with the support of the Oakeshott-Katter-Windsor block-all ex Coalition.But there is the further complication of Greens balance of responsibility in the Senate from July 2011. A Coalition government may well overcome this by ramming through all the legislation they need which will be unpalatable to the Greens, without much discussion.There would be little the opposition could do. The other diabolical possibility none of the experts have mentioned would deliver the strongest government-even after the inevitable defections from the respective parties.That is for the Coalition and Labor to form “a government of National Unity”.Abbott and Gillard as co-Prime Ministers perhaps with divided responsibilities. Both are that desperate for power. There is virtually identical policy already. Their corporate masters are the same, as are their economy first people last agendas. The final option possible is a Labor National Coalition, or even Labor Liberal or Labor LNP-the virtual demise of the current Coalition.Whatever outcome transpires the inevitable losers are the Australian people with marginalised people the biggest losers; indigenous and homeless the biggest losers of all.
