Look what I found in my letter box this morning. A hand-written note from someone ? That’s nice – or is it ? I quickly realise that while it looks like a hand-written note, it is a print of a hand-written note. So, it is not just for me – it has been put in many letter boxes this morning. “Oh yeah, they do that…” – Come on, this is borderline if not outright illegal behaviour on behalf of Philip Webb Real Estate. Misleading potential clients is not OK by law.
One thing is clear: if I ever decide to sell my house, Philip Webb will not be involved (I might send them a hand-written note after I sold my house, though.)
Josh Frydenberg jumped up and down during the long Melbourne lockdown. He attacked the Andrews government left right and center. When his ideas ran out, he simply said publicly “Get on with it” directed and Daniel Andrews, who at the time was sacrificing his night rest for the state and health of its people. And yet, for Frydenberg, political gain was more important.
The same Josh Frydenberg now sees it fit to accuse the Victorian government of politicising the pandemic. Can you believe it ? Has he forgotten his own words and doings ? He clearly does not carry the burden of being a real leader. He clearly is nothing else but a gutless low level political operator.
It was not until I heard about the great philosopher and mystic Ibn-Ul-Arabi in a Turkish TV series (Ertugrul). Access to his fine and timeless work is via a society with locations Oxford, UK and Berkelely USA:
The day to day events often make us see that what is really happening rather blurred or not at all. It is therefore most important to read carefully prepared analyses by competent people, like Kevin Rudd. We can’t allow Morrison to show us an “X” for a “U” on a daily basis.
On 15th June, Lina Khan was made head of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) by Joe Biden. Minutes later, Amazon cried out against her in fear, claiming she was unsuitable because of a bias against the tax-evading giant Amazon. Of course she is “biased” against Amazon. That is why she became the new FTC head. Amazon is a global player who is well known for not paying even the most reasonable tax amounts in countries where they do business by utilising law loop holes.
That was OK under Trump. It is not OK under Biden. How can we allow one of the biggest global businesses to get away with large scale tax avoidance? America is better than that and Lina Khan will show that it is. That is the plan and the vulgar Amazon response to Lina being head of FTC is proof of their fear of being caught. And Lina has all required pre-requisites – not bias. In 2017 she wrote an article in the Yale Law Journal “Amazon’s Anti-Trust Paradox”. There is now even a new “global corporate minimum tax” movement supported by over 130 countries:
This fine article by Chatherine Murphy reveals the real Barnaby Joyce. Bad for politics, bad for our country. BJ is a very bad boy.
“It really was appalling. In the middle of a crisis, Australian voters don’t need government by impulse, and what we witnessed this week was a complete collapse of common purpose in the governing Liberal and National parties.”
Time and again NSW (especially Sydney) has been spreading the Corona Virus because of carelessness, driven by a desire to show other states “how it’s done” without lockdown. It is that attitude towards a global pandemic that is causing repeated outbreaks. Premier Berejiklian’s turbulent private life is of course also a likely distraction from her leadership duties. Leadership is more than words aimed at painting a picture of superiority. It is alertness, deep scrutiny, discipline and action during a time of highest uncertainty.
