I’ve been spending time today looking at Australian Twitter handles and hash tags. I’ve always known that this country believes it’s special and completely out of harm’s way. Today it takes very little time to see the “Experiment” taking place in this country. I’ve written about people being “distracted” previously but now, I’ve discovered a new meaning for the word, that new word is blissful “Ignorance”. To my knowledge there are maybe 2 or 3 Alternative Media channels on YouTube coming out of this country. With no disrespect to them, they’re nothing like I find overseas. The people I listen to overseas are in fact, more professional than mainstream media here in this country. My research began with these amazing overseas people many years ago because, I couldn’t find ANYTHING here where I was getting the REAL TRUTH.
Here in Australia right now are a list of the most important topics discussed, in order of what I consider to be the most hilarious.
– A new $ 5.00 bank note !
– A Royal Commission into the Banks.
– A fast train on the east coast.
– A Housing Bubble that will never burst.
– Construction Cranes in the sky.
– The National Broadband Network.
– A Royal Commission into Pedophilia in the Catholic Church.
And my personal favorite, a reality TV show called “My Kitchen Rules”. This thing has been going since it was advertised at the Australian Open Grand Slam Tennis event in January. The list goes on and on and on !
There’s not been a recession in this country for 25 years. If you knew about a lack of that sort of thing, I’d say you would be like me and assume that the next one, will be catastrophic. But the current “Australian Reality TV Show” continues to rate off the charts. We are immune from anything that doesn’t involve China according to the deluded commentators here. And they all underestimate what’s actually going on there. There’s effectively “free money” here with interest rates at 2%. Low enough for the public to go out and borrow huge amounts of money to buy and sell “used” houses to each other and pretend we are all wealthy.
The private debt to GDP is the highest on the planet at a staggering 210%. The banks have massive derivatives exposure but, they all have “Bail-In” law now, so they’re fine. Australian’s believe that “bailing in” is something you do to get into your car quickly. I’m at a point now where I just don’t talk to people. If you say something like how it really is, they think you’re completely insane. So now, I just keep my thoughts to myself. I could go onto tell you all the statistics in this country but, quite frankly, I can’t be bothered. There comes a time when you can lead an Australian to a BBQ….. but you’ll never make him or her light it to start cooking/silencing the lamb chop.
