To understand the Real Solutions the Budget Brings, You Need to Think Like a Bastard

Over the last few days, I have been at a loss to try to work out, what problems the Liberal National Coalition are trying to solve with their 2014 Budget. It didn’t matter what I came up with – a solution to increasing the value of our education…Nope. A solution to providing support to the jobless to secure employment and make their way in the world…Nope. A solution to improving our standard of health in this country…Nope. Then I realised…I needed to think like a Bastard. I did tweet this today and a fellow tweeter responded with a more apt update:

What can help understand the budget? The Bastard Thinking Cap Can!

The Bastard thinking cap blocks out all empathy and rational thought and just makes you think like a conservative, pompous, out of touch with reality, elitist Bastard. If we put our Bastard Thinking Cap on, the problems the budget is trying to solve becomes crystal clear. I will now outline the problem and solutions below with my Bastard Thinking Cap firmly in place.

Problem – Australia currently does not have a big enough class divide. We have far too much of the ‘middle class and frankly they don’t do enough.’ We need to widen the divide so we create an elitist ruling class and a poverty-stricken class. The poverty stricken class must be large and live in abject poverty and the Elitist ruling class must be extremely wealthy and have a lot of power.  This will then act as a driver to the middle class who are the main drivers of  the economy. They will then try to work their guts out for a long time, until 70 to achieve status of the elitist ruling class (but we will make sure they don’t get there), out of fear they may end up in the poverty class. This increase in productivity will be good for the country, as long as we can keep this model sustainable.

Solution:  Budget 2014 – Force people into abject poverty for at least six months of the year and take thousands of dollars from the lower and middle classes. This will create a massive class divide. If they don’t end up in the poverty class, they will get a taste of it and that is a good way to solve our problem.

Problem – The problem with Australia is we currently have a lot of those low socio economic leftist thinkers and ugh ‘poor people’ making a lot of noise and disrupting the good work of the Government with all their protests and ideas.  If they didn’t have ideas of their own, they wouldn’t protest.  We certainly need to stop them getting into any area where they might have power or make laws for this country. How can we stop the ideas from the socially left rabble and ugh ‘poor people’?

Solution part A -Budget 2014 – Firstly we need to stop of those kids from poor families attending a public school getting into university. We need to rip out a lot of money from the school system. Parents of Calibre who love their children will already have made something of their life to earn enough to put their child into a private school.  This way nearly all university students will be from the elitist ruling class, and deservedly so. 

Solution part B – Budget 2014 – We need to make it really tough for poor people to enter University. Our main aim is to stop any ideas from poor people and prevent them at all costs from getting into jobs where they have power or create rules or laws.  Therefore as part of Budget 2014, we will make sure that it is really expensive to go to university. Parents of Calibre will already have made something of their life to support their kids at uni. This way only the elitist class will graduate into jobs that gives them power and ability to make rules and laws, and deservedly so.

Problem – The  problem is Australia has too many poor people sponging off the health system. If the elitist class need to spend their hard earned money to pay for private cover, why should they fund the poor people to go to the doctor as well? We need to make sure that they understand that going to the doctor is just for sick people. Not just bludging hypochondriacs who mooch off the tax payer.  Besides, we can’t have these people clogging up the public system. The problem in Australia, is if there was an epidemic or major disaster and the doctors and private hospitals didn’t have enough room, we are paving the way to ensure that some simply cannot afford to go. This will make room for the elitist class if they need to use the health system, in the event of an epidemic or major disaster and deservedly so.

Solution:  Budget 2014 – Get rid of Universal Health Care. Charge poor people to go to the Doctor. This means that they won’t go to the Doctor as much and won’t be clogging up the health system.  The public system should be thought of as a contingency plan or ‘safe haven’ for the elitist class, in the case of an epidemic or disaster and there is no room in private.   For the under 30s who will have no income at all; this will encourage them to stay fit and healthy and looking for work, or they will need to suffer in silence as they don’t even have $7.00 for the doctor.  I mean, if these poor people sold the mags off the Commy and put on standard rims, they would have plenty of money to go to the doctor. It is simple really.

So there we have it folks. The Bastard Thinking Cap truly works. You really can think like a Real Bastard with one on. You really do think and feel like the 1%.
It makes understanding the Real Solutions behind the budget very easy indeed. Go on. Try it!

 

The original pic of Tony Abbott in this blog post he was wearing this rainbow hat:

This is in fact a photo of Abbott in a rainbow hairnet worn by SPC and Ardmona workers in Shepparaton to raise awareness regarding organ and tissue donation, via the charity Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation.

Zaidee Turner was the only person under the age of 16 to donate her organs and tissues
When she died of a cerebral haemorrage in 2004. Zaidee had lived in Shepparton

    • OK while I agree with the article I do have a serious complaint!
      The photo of Abbott in his “custom designed bastard thinking cap”
      Is in fact a photo of Abbott in a rainbow hairnet worn by SPC and Ardmona workers in Shepparaton

      Zaidee had lived in Shepparton hence the link.
      I personally find the use of that pic offensive as I was the secretary of ZRF for it’s first 5 years.
      I worry that the image will make a mockery of what has been an annual event to raise awareness
      By the canned fruit workers in Shepparton.
      I am sure you could find many other pictures of Abbott in a more generic silly hat.

    Problem
    Global warming, you know that bloody mystery
    those bloody highly educated scientists keep harping on about it
    trying to mitigate it’s supposed damage to our environment
    It’s all bullshit really

    Solution
    “We need to unshackle the trees” and while we are at it frack for gas,
    Dig for coal, and lots of Gina’s iron ore, we will take it all
    Cut it down,dig it up, sell it off,and share it with the wealthy and big business
    Stuff those young, they scare us, we will just subject them to abject poverty
    Power to only us wealthy!!!!!

    • Very Good! I was actually going to do environment and Indigenous, but it was getting too long. I will find a way in another post to address those issues.

    • Trouble is, coal has fallen in price, leading to hundreds being laid off in the Hunter, It is a shame, there will not be money from the cist put on carbon emissions, to allo9w the Hunter to transform to new industries.

      I believe the present number is 500 losing their jobs.

  4. I wonder if the Liberal government spoke to, oh I don’t know, ANYONE working in healthcare before coming up with their policies. Saving a few bucks at the GP is going to lead to big costs in the hospital end. Making it more difficult for people to manage long-term chronic illness is incredibly short-sighted and going to wind up with massive budget blow-outs. Making it more difficult for Joe Blogs to access care and manage his type 2 diabetes for example is going to wind up costing a lot more when down the track he needs his foot amputated.
    I am also really concerned we are going to see an increase in youth suicide and mental health problems when some of these policies come into effect.
    Oh and trashing the environment while they are at it. How short-sighted is this government? What a mess they are creating.

  6. Did you know that Tony Abbott was diagnosed as a sociopath,narscissist and psychopath when he was studying to be a Pastor in his early 20’s. His psychologist said, that he had no empathy, and that he was a bully (was in the boxing team and beat people up to get what he wanted) and dominated all conversations with his self-righteous attitudes, not wanting to hear what anyone else had to say. He was deemed unsuitable for that calling. Now, the ilk he has chosen, “birds of a feather stick together” as his ministers, no doubt fit into the this same self-serving mindset, which are only obviously motivated by their own greed and need to do evil unto the majority. Let’s hope their 2014 budget is a ‘wake up’ call to those who believed their lies and voted the bastards in! 🙂
