Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)

The spectre haunting Australia – unemployment

A spectre is haunting Australia; the spectre of unemployment. Because this is a crisis of profitability in the developed countries, pussyfooting around and kowtowing to capital won’t work. In the words of the BLF: If you don’t fight, you lose.The time to fight unemployment is now, not when it hits six or seven or eight percent. A 30 hour week without loss of pay would be a start.

Bill Shorten is much more offensive than Teresa Gambaro

The last few days have shown us that the Liberals are scapegoating immigrants. Labor is scapegoating the unemployed. Both scapegoat refugees. None of these people are to blame for the crises of capitalism. Fight the system, not its victims.

Attack the real bludgers, Gillard

We live in an unjust society. This is a society where bosses take as their own the profits we create. Labour creates value, not capital.

The owners of capital are the real bludgers. But Gillard won’t attack them. She is, like the rest of the ALP, their servant.

US racism: the game stays the same

Obama now heads the racist machine. As he destroys the illusions millions had in him, the lesson seems clear. Change comes not from changing who runs the system but from changing the system.

They party; we get the sack

While we face increasing unemployment and less working hours, the bosses party. What a sick society. What a rotten system.
