I am a firm believer in the free-market system of government. Capitalism is the best system of government, even though it has flaws. But Bloody Hell, theres a limit!

We might not agree with the words written below, but we will fight til our last breath for the authors rights to say them.


I am a firm believer in the free-market system of government. Capitalism is the best system of government, even though it has flaws. No other system has done more to alleviate poverty than capitalism. Capitalism allows people who work hard to take risks and borrow money to succeed. Of course, some fail; that's life. The government must regulate the free market to prevent unfair practices against consumers.


In Australia, we have seen a failure to regulate the excesses of corporate greed in the pursuit of profits at any cost. Australian governments, regardless of political party, have allowed companies to engage in predatory behaviour without restrictions. The best example of this is the Big Four banks. For years, they were allowed to buy out smaller banks and close them down, thus eliminating competition. The Banking Royal Commission into dubious banking practices uncovered so many nefarious practices. Banks even engaged in necrophilia, metaphorically speaking. The banks were still fucking people after they died.

Today, people struggle with rising interest rates and suffer from mortgage stress. Banks report record profits in the billions. Some would say profiteering. Result of The Banking Royal Commission. Sweet Fuck All. Were the banks fined? Did executives get charged or receive a prison sentence? Were the executives fined or sacked? Answer: No, they are still self-regulated. Banks have done some atrocious things to people, resulting in people losing their homes, businesses, and farms. I personally had loans on commercial properties. I never missed a payment direct debit, all tenanted. The banks held a first mortgage plus a lien on my home, which we owned outright. They gave me 30 days to pay out or refinance. The result: we auctioned them all at a fire sale. I got sweet revenge on the banks.


My daughter has a horrific credit rating. She has never spared any lending institution. She was indebted to personal loans and credit cards to the tune of $260,000. On her behalf, I obtained power of attorney and contacted AFCA Australian Financial Credit Authority. I contacted AFCA after numerous phone calls to banks, only to be put through to Indian call centres. They only think they can understand English. You have to talk slowly and repeat everything. Pay peanuts. What do you expect? I explained to AFCA that the banks never did a credit check. Had they done a credit check, they would have seen late payments, some for 90 days, and a car repossessed. Despite being behind on previous loans, the banks kept lending my daughter money at very high-interest rates. However, she did not have the ability or credibility to pay back these loans. The end result was the banks forgave her debts. One bank executive even apologised.

Now let us talk about supermarkets again. All governments permitted Coles and Woolworths' duopoly to enjoy an unprecedented 80% market share, not permitted in any other country. Coles and Woolworths expanded into service stations, pubs, and bottle shops and practiced predatory pricing to send any competition broke. When I owned a pub, I could purchase brand-name spirits from a Woolworth's pub cheaper than from the wholesalers.

Woolworths and Coles control petrol stations in some areas, with no competition. Coles and Woolworths being good environmental citizens: Supermarkets banned plastic bags to protect the environment. However, they sold you a plastic bag for 15 cents.


The hypocrisy is paramount. The non-free plastic bags saved them $77 million a year. Now they have banned all plastic bags but will sell you a supposedly reusable paper bag for 25 cents. You will be lucky if the bag doesn't fall apart from the trolley to your car boot. Social involvement in both Coles and Woolworths during Pride Month. Rainbow Flags Everywhere: Staff With Their Rainbow Badges


How about putting more effort into staffing cash registers for people wanting to pay cash?Coles profits $1.1 billion, and Woolworths profits $1.6 billion. One has to conclude they are both price-gauging and blaming inflation. Bullshit! They are taking advantage of inflation to shaft their customers. These two supermarket juggernauts screw down suppliers and farmers not to give their customers lower prices but in pursuit of huge profits.Qantas has been the second major topic on MSM all week, intertwined with The Voice. Alan Joyce has involved Qantas in political issues. Same-sex marriage plebiscite purely because he wanted to marry his boyfriend.

Alan Joyce wrote on a Qantas plane, YES, and allowed Yes campaigners free flights. The photos were taken with a beaming Anthony Albanese beside a plane with a big yes in rainbow colours. One could be sceptical and think this gesture was to repay Albanese for not allowing Qatar Air to operate in Australia, resulting in lower airfares and less profit for Qantas. Albanese's son is a high achiever; we just don't know at what level yet. Was also admitted to the Qantas lounge. When one remembers how badly Alan Joyce treated Qantas employees and witnessing the hypocrisy of a Labour Prime Minister licking Joyce's arse is hard to fathom. Joyce is an accomplished arse licker. He has had a lot of practice puns intended. It has been reported that Qantas engaged in illegal practices such as selling cancelled flights, not refunding passengers, putting a time limit on refunds, plus other dubious practices.

Alan Joyce has been paid millions over the years to paraphrase Winston Churchill: "Never before has someone with such limited ability been paid so much." Qantas is about to get shafted by ASIC. The fine could be billions of dollars. Qantas could go bankrupt as a legacy of Alan Joyce's mismanagement.Alan Joyce has brought his retirement forward. Qantas staff are rejoicing with Joyce going, Don't let the door hit you in the arse on the way out. They have shown Alan Joyce the emergency exit.

Alan Joyce has done to Qantas what he does to his husband and his husband does to him. He turned Qantas from "The Flying Kangaroo" into "The Lying Kangaroo." I can't help but think Alan Joyce must have had photos of Qantas board members in compromising situations, maybe copping it up the Khyber Pass. What other explanation could there be for Qantas to pay so much money to an incompetent CEO? Alan Joyce's replacement was there during all these malpractices and one suspects they promoted her to show how woke Qantas is. Look, a female CEO's only qualification is possession of a vagina.
