  • 18. Page 18 BU$INESS TRADER AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2013www.bstra.com I have just returned from the UK, where I spent my childhood, and I have again witnessed what happens when bad politics are allowed to ruin a once proud nation. Huge numbers of Britain’s there now acidly refer to their homeland as ‘Broken Britain’, and for good reason as it offers stark evidence in what happens when governments continually take from those who create wealth, and hand it to those who do not. Social conditions in Britain have become so tainted that almost every night on TV you can watch sickly entertaining program’s showing people rorting the system, ripping each other off, living in squalor, street fighting, driving dangerously, drug dealing etc etc, in fact one regular program I watched did nothing more than show an entire family tattooing each other whilst explaining how much in state benefits they had managed to legally extort from their government. The ‘wife’ was the ripe old age of 21 with 5 children from various fathers, whilst the ‘husband’ was little more than a useless idiot who proudly admitted that he had no plans to ever seek work. And there are millions like these across Britain, sucking the life blood from their own country, in fact people like this now seem quite common right across the European Union. Let’s not beat around the bush; the main people to blame for governing Britain into this state of near financial and cultural collapse are, without doubt, its previous Socialists governments. This is the very same animal currently governing Australia and who, as depressingly as always, have found it totally impossible to balance Australia’s books. Even with our massive once in a hundred year mining boom, our Socialist brothers and sisters keep chalking up more and more debt. It would be laughable, were it not so outrageous, and what is equally as outrageous is the stark fact that they still think that they are acting in our national interest! They keep harping on about “working families”, but without a properly functioning economy, the work will eventually run out and their much vaunted social programs will collapse. These are stark truths that Socialists can’t ever seem to get their heads around although, to be fair, 2 long decades ago Paul Keating came close! What seems to have happened across most of European society is that the ‘elite’ amongst those that produce little or nothing, the ‘takers’, have been elected to govern those that work and produce the goods and services that society genuinely needs, the ‘givers’. Effectively, the ‘takers’ have been allowed to gradually gain more and more control over the ‘givers’. They have done this by stealthily erecting more and more hurdles for the ‘givers’ to climb over until there is nothing, if anything, left to give. This has been conducted in the form of slow bullying and is now why Britain and France, countries with a combined population 7 times that of Australia’s, are now financially buckling under their massive and unsustainable weight of ever growing debt. It is why Greece, Italy, Spain, Cyprus, Portugal and Ireland are all, in reality, bankrupt. So, I arrived back here in June to be told that our Socialist friends in Canberra have delivered yet another piece of newly legalised claptrap requiring us to now report our staffing choices to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency. Once again this is nothing other than more forms to fill out, which are then given to new government employees, none of which are actually producing anything, so as they can, I gather, check as to whether or not there is any excuse for them to impose new fines or restrictions on our company for infringements that have never existed before. This is, once again, nothing more than the ‘takers’ trying to squeeze more from the ‘givers’ by dressing it up as social reform, a lame excuse that the ‘takers’ fall back on all of the time. Of course, the ‘takers’ never actually ever asked the ‘givers’ whether or not this was acceptable as they knew full well that we would have given them a resounding no, but that, of course, never stops them, so distorted is their real world financial view of society. Usually, the leaders of the ‘takers’ are, of course, mainly spiteful left wing lawyers whose stock in trade are the words that we all use, except that they spend years learning to use them cleverer than us so as they appear reasonable. In fact, nothing could be more unreasonable, and the miserable and now failed socialist experiment in Europe speaks volumes about the result. Communism doesn’t work, and now we know that its smaller sister Socialism doesn’t work either because as soon as you remove the need for personal thrift, hard work, independence and just reward from any society, it starts to wither and die. The legacy of the great majority of left wing nanny state governments are now, more than ever, known to be armies of unemployed, social unrest, unsustainable debt, financial collapse. Many European countries are now sad testament to these stark facts. Amazingly, our own home grown Socialists don’t seem to be hearing this screamingly loud message and have still continued, by imposing even more red tape, to make operating a small or medium sized business, the financial backbone of this nation, ever harder. Anyway, in September, or whatever date our latest unelected prime minister chooses, we have a sorely needed chance to kick these Socialist carpet baggers way out into the Australian political wilderness, a golden opportunity to teach them a much needed lesson before they commit even more financial and cultural damage upon our still proud nation. And we have thankfully still plenty to be proud of, unlike those scores of millions in Europe who have watched their nations bankrupted over a 50 year orgy of stupidity, selfishness and ego, all committed under the guise of Socialist reform.

  • 22. Page 22 BU$INESS TRADER AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2013www.bstra.com FUNNY STUFF THAT! Sailing to Italy… A young Brisbane woman was so depressed that she decided to end her life by throwing herself into the river. Just before she could throw herself from the docks, a handsome young man stopped her. “You have so much to live for,” said the man.“I’m a sailor, and we are off to Italy tomorrow. I can stow you away on my ship. I’ll take care of you, bring you food every day, and keep you happy.” With nothing to lose, combined with the fact that she had always wanted to go to Italy , the woman accepted. That nightthesailorbroughtheraboard and hid her in a small but comfortable compartment in the hold. From then on, every night he would bring her three sandwiches, a bottle of red wine, and make love to her until dawn. Two weeks later she was discovered by the captain during a routine inspection. “What are you doing here?” asked the captain. “I have an arrangement with one of the sailors,” she replied. “He brings me food and I get a free trip to Italy.” “I see,” the captain says. Her conscience got the best of her and she added, “Plus, he’s screwing me.” “He certainly is,” replied the captain. “This is the Stradbroke Island Ferry .” A duck walks into a pub and orders a beer and a ham sandwich. The barman looks at him and says, ‘But you’re a duck.’ ‘I see your eyes are working.’ replies the duck. ‘And you talk!’ exclaims the barman. ‘I see your ears are working’, says the duck, ‘Now can I have my beer and my sandwich please?’ ‘Certainly’ say the barman, ‘sorry about that, it’s just that we don’t get many ducks in this pub. What are you doing around this way?’ ‘I’m working on the building site across the road’, explains the duck. Then the duck drinks his beer, eats his sandwich and leaves. This continues for 2 weeks. Then one day the circus comes to town. The ringleader of the circus come into the pub and the barman says to him, ‘You’re with the circus aren’t you? I know a duck that would be just brilliant in your circus, he talks, drinks beer and everything!’ ‘Sounds marvellous’, says the ringleader, ‘get him to give me a call.’ So the next day when the duck comes into the pub the barman says, ‘Hey Mr Duck, I reckon I can line you up with a top job, paying really good money!’ ‘Yeah?’ says the duck, ‘Sounds great, where is it?’ ‘At the circus’, says the barman. ‘The circus?’ the duck inquires. ‘That’s right’ replies the barman. ‘The circus?’ the duck asks again. ‘Yes’, says the barman. ‘The place with the big tent?’ the duck questioned. ‘Yeah’, the barman replies. ‘With all the animals?’ the duck questioned. ‘Of course” the barman replies. ‘With the big canvas roof with the hole in the middle?’ asks the duck. ‘That’s right!’ says the barman. The duck looks confused. ‘Why on earth do they want a plasterer?’ The Talking Duck… TUFF THAT!TUFF THAT!TUFF THAT!TUFF THAT! A duck walks into a pub and orders a beer and a ham sandwich.

  • 30. Page 30 BU$INESS TRADER AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2013www.bstra.com Sex after Death!! A couple made a deal that whoever died first would come back and inform the other if there is sex after death. Their biggest fear was that there was no after- life at all. After a long life together, the husband was the first to die. True to his word, he made the first contact: “ Marion .... Marion... “ “Is that you, Bob?” “Yes, I’ve come back like we agreed.” “That’s wonderful! What’s it like?” “Well, I get up in the morning, I have sex. I have breakfast and then it’s off to the golf course. I have sex again, bathe in the warm sun and then have sex a couple of more times. Then I have lunch (you’d be proud - lots of greens). Another romp around the golf course, then pretty much have sex the rest of the afternoon. After supper, it’s back to the golf course again. Then it’s more sex until late at night. I catch some much needed sleep and then the next day it starts all over again”. “Oh, Bob! Are you in Heaven?” “No… I’m a rabbit somewhere near Mildura.” A Timely Reminder… Arthur is 81 years old. He’s played golf every day since his retirement 16years ago. One day he arrives home looking downcast. “That’s it,” he tells his wife “I’m giving up golf. My eyesight is so bad; once I hit the ball I can’t see where it went.” His wife sympathizes. As they sit down, she makes a suggestion: “Why don’t you take my brother with you and give it one more try.” “That’s no good,” sighs Arthur.“Your brother is 93 years old. He can’t help.” “He may be a ninety three,” says the wife, “but his eyesight is perfect.” So the next day, Arthur heads off to the golf course with his brother-in-law. He tees up, takes an almighty swing and squints down the fairway. He turns to the brother-in-law, “Did you see the ball?” “Of course I did!” says the brother-in- law. “I have perfect eyesight.” “Where did it go?” asks Arthur. “Can’t remember.” NOTICE1.

Their biggest fear was that there was no after- life at all. After a long life together, the FORE LAUGHS Golfer At The Dentist… A man and his wife walked into a dentist’s office. The man said to the dentist, “Doc, I’m in one heck of a hurry I have two buddies sitting out in my car waiting for us to go play golf, so forget about the anesthetic, I don’t have time for the gums to get numb. I just want you to pull the tooth, and be done with it! We have a 10:00 AM tee time at the best golf course in town and it’s 9:30 already... I don’t have time to wait for the anesthetic to work!’ The dentist thought to himself, “My goodness, this is surely a very brave man asking to have his tooth pulled without using anything to kill the pain.” So the dentist asks him, “Which tooth is it sir?” The man turned to his wife and said, “Open your mouth, Honey, and show him…
