Kamahl has done another U-turn & is again voting No.

Never forget that snowflakes like Kamahl are entertainers surrounded in his private life by other entertainers, who are 99% lefty snowflakes like them.

Kamahl has figured out that the Voice is a way of redirecting attention to himself.

Crass virtue signalling that may manage to sell a few more Kamahl albums. Sad and pathetic virtue signalling by a poor old has-been whose popular currency deserted him decades ago.

Time to retire with a good book:

‘Nimitz & His Admirals: How they won the war in the Pacific’ by Edwin Hoyt.

It’s a real page turner & an exemplary piece of narrative history from a time (1970) when the genre was in its prime. Still in print and with a new edition coming out before the end of the year.

The allies in the Pacific & SE Asian land theatres were really hanging on by the skin of our teeth in 1942.

Your money is worth a lot less than before because the government wanted to fund itself cheaply and prolong the death of the asset market, through printing physical and virtual AUD.

That in itself isn’t remarkable, despite being sad and regrettable.

49.5% compounded annual growth rates are bloody unheard of outside of African and South American shitholes.

Which is why it was noted.

Set the chart to five years and let your learning and anger flourish.

The price mechanism deals with demand and supply. The price mechanism has nothing to do with inflation but the way price is an allocation tool for resources.

Because the only way to allocate resources even during a period of shortages is to use the price mechanism. It’s the most efficient why.
And last year, after the wa,r we began to experience shortages around the world. Shortages which caused significant price increases in basic commodities . In other words a supply shock.

No vote gains more ground amid a loss of support for Peter Dutton

Exclusive

Political Editor

3 Comments

National support for the Indigenous voice to parliament has failed to gain the expected campaign momentum heading into the final weeks before the October 14 referendum, with only slightly more than a third of surveyed voters now saying they will vote yes.

But the further decline in support has also coincided with a sharp fall in Liberal leader Peter Dutton’s approval ratings following a heated political debate over race, with satisfaction in the ­Opposition Leader’s performance now at a record low.

According to an exclusive Newspoll conducted for The Australian, 36 per cent of surveyed voters say they intend to vote yes. This reflects a two-point fall in the past three weeks and a continuation of the erosion in support since the beginning of the year.

It also marks the lowest level of support so far for the federal government’s constitutional model to enshrine Indigenous recognition and a voice to parliament and executive government.

What effect did it actually have, specially with manufactured products?

Even the much talked about wheat is a bit of a BS, there is so much of it on the market that Poland and other countries are banning the import of Ukrainian wheat.

Oil? The Arab states are reducing supply FGS.

There were things we didn’t commonly know, such as Ukraine was 25% of the world’s wheat exports and there were some other commodities which they either dug up or processed that were important. Then there was the oil issue with Russia and there was the gas pipeline going kaboom. It wasn’t a pretty year. All that, as we were coming out of a lockdown. It was a pretty unique set of macro circumstances. If there was no war and that side was hunky dory I think we may have scraped through the COVID bullshit much less economic tension.

Yes, and the price is slinking up again, which isn’t a good thing. The Saudis judged that there was enough demand that would allow a production cut and cause the price to move higher. We were sitting around 80 bucks for most of the year and it now looks like it’s heading towards $US100 bucks a barrel. It’s now $90 bucks

Before the war, Ukraine produced half the sunflower oil sold worldwide and more than 10 percent of the wheat, barley and corn.

I was going for memory perhaps it included Russian wheat that was also blocked. Even so, 10% of the world’s supply suddenly shut off is pretty significant.

And it wasn’t just Ukraine, the sanctions had an effect which took time for re-routing to other places not impacted by the sanctions.

EU Real GDP basically flat-lined after Q1 of 22.

Recycling a quote from Gary Johns in last month’s Quadrant:

This referendum with its “simply about recognition” meme is no gracious gift. It masks the huge Uluru agenda. That agenda is stealing the future of people at Warburton and hundreds of other places. Recognition is not the same as reconciliation. There is no reconciliation in this referendum proposal—it is, as a result, an abandonment of leadership. Aboriginal parents face an awful choice. If they keep their children “safe” on country, away from the worst of modern life, grog and drugs, they condemn their children to restricted lives, with poor education, a poor diet, and few prospects.

The great lie of this referendum is that choices can be avoided. Somehow, twenty-four select delegates in Canberra will solve the parents’ dilemma. They will not; they will continue to mask the choice and, in default, make the choice for them. A slow death on country, rather than to break free, with the help of their families and guidance from outsiders on how to handle the wider world.

Johns takes the cake again.
Yes23 will try all sorts of emotional blackmail to get the Shriek up.
Well here is the emotionally laden argument to prop up the No vote; if you care about Aboriginal children getting a better future, vote No to the group keeping them down.

Look, I’m no commodity expert, so I go with what was being said at the time. There appears to have been hoarding though as the price spiked from the beginning of the war to May.

There were also dreadful hindrances in Europe with the oil price and after the pipeline incident there were threats of severe gas shortages.

I think oil spiked to 120 bucks a barrel and gas went from about 3 dollars to 13 per unit. Europe was panicked to about sept 22.

The Productivity Commission report on Indigenous expenditure in 2017 put the figure at $33 B
This (a) is a shedload higher – almost Thirty Billion higher – than the supergeniuses on Das Projekt jibed at Kamahl over.
(b) is 6 years ago, what would today’s figure be?

Kamahl is correct, The Project beta soys owe him an apology.

You don’t own this blog, so stfu shorty.

And you don’t either Nakkas, which is why I highlighted your stupid comment about Bird who’s banned here. You moron, he ruins blogs

Correct.
And also Dot at 12:13 PM yesterday articulating the many reasons Bird is a menace.
And who was the other bint who got banned for posting all that “25 famous Australians accused of pedophilia” and “children in tunnels” stuff?

Right-wing Polish MP Krzysztof Bosak (left) delivered a ‘bill’ for 101bn Zlotys ($23 billion) to the Ukrainian embassy in Warsaw on Tuesday, demanding that Kiev repay the aid it has received after it sued Poland before the World Trade Organization for imposing a ban on grain imports from Ukraine.

When I first bought the 380, it cost about $40 to fill it up. Yesterday it cost $120.
(From memory, but sounds about right.)

I remember last year when you screeched far too often in this forum that none of it was inflationary – not the policies, not the growth in money supply, not the destruction of supply chains

…and I got roundly abused and shat upon by the Globalist for daring to mention the cause for the inflation was government money creation and regulation. And because I was too stupid to understand how an economy worked.
*some reformatting done.

Reading the verses with some background music is my plan. What’s more, the music will be performed with the instrumentation of the dwarves in The Hobbit: two fiddles, three flutes, one drum, two clarinets, two viols and a harp. Since that leaves two instruments un-named for Oín and Glóin, I see no reason why one of those instruments could not be a resonator guitar.

I’d add two cowbells.

Turtlehead, you were mocked because like most of the things you post, which is hyperbolic trash like the recent comment that the left could cheat enough to reach 90% of the vote in the refendum. You just didn’t mention inflation, you were predicting that the money supply increasing would end up as hyperinflation. I mocked your ridiculous claim because it was idiotic.

And because I was too stupid to understand how an economy worked.
*some reformatting done.

I wouldn’t flatter you by suggesting your understanding of economics is simply stupid. I’d say that most of the things you say is moronic and embarrassing to read on this blog and I wouldn’t just limit it to economics either.

  1. Headline of the day: The Matildas and Arsenal weapon tasked with filling Kerr-sized hole Fnarrr.

  2. And puts lie to the media’s claim that he held a firearms licence “for recreational purposes”.

  3. The word doing the rounds (as yet unsubstantiated) is a total ban on “recreational” firearm use. Can see a lot…

  4. Outstanding. Just outstanding commentary on the current semitic sentiment in this country. The back end of a Gray Connolly piece…
